When you look at the cover Oda Nobuna no Yabou, you would immediately think "oh, its just another cliche harem series", I wouldn't blame you if you did as it does look like one and I myself thought of it as one, but when you actually watch it you realize that there is simply more to it than that, its definitely not a tasteless cliche and although it has many female characters, it doesn't present itself as a stereotypical harem where they are all attracted to the male lead.

I won't bother with the introductions because I know you are smart enough to have read the read more

Synopsis: Sagara Yoshiharu, a typical Japanese teenager that loves the Sengoku Era as well as everything in the same franchise. Out of the blue, he suddenly takes Kinoshita Tokichiro’s place and starts serving under the Oda Clan’s leader. However, all of the generals in that time are all girls! How will Sagara Yoshiharu take this, and will he be able to help Oda Nobuna to achieve her dream of uniting Japan and making it a free country?


This anime is about Sagara Yoshiharu, who travels back into the Sengoku era where feudal lords fight among each other to expand their territory and to make Japan free read more

This one is a girl going to the sengoku period but nth much...
Oda Nobuna no Yabou is still the best!!
If at any point through the 50+ eps of ZnT you got bored, you might wanna check out Oda Nobuna - the concept's kinda similar, but Oda is much more intense and has no filler-like slowdowns...

...and if Oda Nobuna no Yabou leaves you craving for more, there's this pretty good 4-season show called Zero no Tsukaima that has a lot in common and is really worth watching :)
