An anime adaptation of the eroge “Koihime Musou” which in turn is loosely based on the “Romance of the Three Kingdoms” novel, it takes a more novel and surprising approach than we are used to for anime series that are based on eroge. Already quite different is the fact all of the famous characters from “Romance of the Three Kingdoms” are female in “Koihime Musou”.

But instead of having a male lead character that all the female characters fawn over and desire to be with, the “Koihime Musou” anime forgoes this classical harem and omits the male lead character from the eroge. The anime focuses more read more

Koihime Musou is a very light anime that doesn't requires the viewer to analyze much. At first, due to the way the characters act, the colors applied to the anime, and the different songs and sound effects that you get to hear, you think this anime is very childish and that it's directed to kids. However, this anime contains a lot of lesbian-like comments, jokes, scenes, and dialogues; at some point, if the director/writer would've wanted, this anime could even have turned into a hentai.

The story is very naive: a black-haired, martial artist teenager girl sets out on a journey to defeat all the bandits read more

Koihime†Musou was an enjoyable to watch, but only for its comedy element.

The story is loosely based on Romance of the Three Kingdoms, but it's pretty loose. The anime itself is mostly episodic scenes where Kanu travels across the land, defeating bandits and saving the day. Along the way, she meets and befriends fellow female warriors, all who are scantily-dressed and could kick ass very easily. Together, they visit villages and towns, repelling bandit and evil armies from destroying the peace.

The art and sound were decent. Nothing bad, but nothing that shined either.

Characters are your generic anime heroines with strengths and weaknesses. Kanu is the average, read more

Koihime Musou is unexpectedly more of a comedy anime. I was expecting something a bit more serious and action-packed but it turns out to be a funnier version of Ikkitousen with less service and less action. If you like girls and comedy then this is a title you shouldn't miss.

The story is a joke. It's based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms and it was supposed to be about a girl on a journey to find a way to change the chaotic, war-torn world. They just took things from there and then made a comedy, service anime with some respectable action here and there. read more

Anime: Ikkitousen
Similar on the fact that the names have to do with the other and some of the fight scenes are similar and is a Historical anime 
reportRecommended by Valeria-chan
Anime: Sengoku Otome: Momoiro Paradox
Both have gender swapped historical figures (in Sengoku Otome they're from the Sengoku Era, while in Koihime Musou they're from the chinese Romance of the Three Kingdoms), an almost all female cast with some random yuri and a bit of ecchi/comedy.
Sengoku Otome has more plot though, while Koihime Musou is more like a slice of life than anything. 
reportRecommended by Sayuri92
Anime: Queen's Blade: Rurou no Senshi
Both are filled with mostly only females fighting one another. Though Queens blade is more ecchi than Koihime Musou.  
reportRecommended by spineslayer
Anime: Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls
both are ecchi + warrior girls + pseudo-historical plot. 
reportRecommended by surieldl
Anime: Ikkitousen: Great Guardians
Both series are about very badassed chicks who are armed with white weapon and they perfectly know how to use it. Shortly : lots of action and fanservice.

Anime: Oda Nobuna no Yabou
People from Classic Asian story AS LOLIS! Also, both are funny and have an actual plot.
