The story was not terribly deep, nor was it absent. Basically, a clumsy middle school girl is accidentally transported back into the Sengoku era of Japan... except that there are no men. I never expected that the fanservice would be really over the top on this one mainly due to there being no guys in the anime to witness it... but in this ecchi, fanservice is definitely not the main focus. Anyways, the story was kind of typical, but it was interesting if you're looking for a good absent-minded time killer to watch.
I really liked the character designs for Sengoku Otome, because I tend to like anime with bright colors. When I saw the main picture showing most of the characters, the one who immediately stood out was Nobunaga. However, all the characters have nice, unique designs that made it easy to tell them apart. The background was nice too, and was fairly detailed.
The OP is a catchy rock song that is rather nice to listen to, and the ED is a calmer song that ends an episode nicely. The BGM wasn't bad, but I didn't notice it too much.
Not too much character development, except maybe a little for Mitsuhide. However, most of the characters had a unique personality. Hideyoshi is your typical clutz who isn't too bright and has too much energy. She was okay, but sometimes it seemed she was there just so there was someone to get in the way of the other characters. Nobunaga definitely had the most amusing personality. She has the ambition to gather all the pieces of the Crimson Armor and conquer the land... but she is rather eccentric and proud. She was definitely my favorite character in the show. Mitsuhide is nearly the opposite: calm, collected, and strategic. She is also pretty cool in her own way, but is a bit obsessed with Nobunaga which can be annoying at times. The only other character really worth mentioning is Ieyasu, but I can't really say much about her without spoilers.
I was bored when I decided to start this anime, and amazingly it eased my boredom. It was quite enjoyable and is great for an anime where you don't have to think a lot. It's not on my rewatch list, but I would recommend it to anyone who is ok with mild ecchi and little plot. read more
