High school student Yoshiharu Sagara wakes up and finds himself in the middle of a raging Sengoku period battle. He is saved by the legendary Hideyoshi Toyotomi, but at the cost of the hero's life. With his dying breath, the warrior pleads for Yoshiharu to become a feudal lord in his place. Now that the course of history has been changed, Yoshiharu pledges to keep the timeline from diverging any further. Yet, after rescuing Nobuna Oda—whom he discovers is actually the fabled Nobunaga Oda's female counterpart—Yoshiharu realizes he has been transported to an alternate reality where most of Japan's historical warlords are now cute girls!

To set things right and find a way back home, Yoshiharu agrees to become one of Nobuna's retainers and assist her in a conquest of Japan. As Nobuna initiates her campaign, Yoshiharu discovers that the history he learned from playing the video game "Nobunaga's Ambition" allows him to predict future events and turn the tide of war. Using this invaluable gift to aid the Oda clan's beautiful generals, Yoshiharu hopes to help his new lord fulfill her dream and win the hearts of women everywhere.

Historical anime where we see Nobuna's story, only they change the genre and well. Actually I just finished this anime, and I was surprised. The relationship that the characters have with the protagonist and how he manages to change them is very well done. Then we see a typical isekai main character with a harem more or less. I recommend it if you like historical fights and stuff. The animation is very good, the soundtrack does not disappoint, and the character development is very good. The design is also very nice to see, I love how they use the historical knowledge that the protagonist has ...

Mixed Feelings
One of the few anime, in which the protagonist uses the knowledge he has obtained in school to its fullest potential, at least more so than in other anime similar to it like

Sengoku Otome or Amatsuki.

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Ah, another entry in the "kids at war" genre mixed with never before seen fetish of getting stomped on by little girls with political power, highly varying breast size and amount of garment.

What is most annoying is them being so adamant that anime is historically accurate since it's the whole premise where main character, otherwise known as doormat-kun, has rich knowledge of history. Except it's not the history he knows... I don't know it makes my head hurt trying to rationalize the whole premise... Supposedly his knowledge is what keeps him alive and interesting but at the same time every character he knows from history ...
