"Sasuke Sarutobi" is an average college student at Kyoto University studying time slips as a hobby until the day he falls into a time slip himself, transporting him to the Sengoku Period. Upon arrival, Sasuke encounters several warlords he could only ever dream of meeting: Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Tokugawa Ieyasu, and the famous "Demon King of the Sixth Heaven" Oda Nobunaga, who takes him in as a vassal. Introducing several modern concepts to the warlords varying from playing tennis to sending chain letters, Sasuke finds his place in an old but utterly new world.

*This review is for people who play Ikemen Sengoku. Otherwise, I'm telling you now, this anime will not make any sense to you; there is seemingly no plot, no character development; everything is completely nonsensical. However, if you play the otome game, and looking to feed your addiction, read on...

In my opinion, this was created for IkeSen addicts like myself. At first, I thought the chibi style would be a total turnoff, but surprisingly, they're really cute, and true to their character (as per the game). AND, watch through to the end (3 minutes) and you're rewarded with a 2 second clip of the actual ...

Okay, so I very much loved this otome game to heart. So when I heard they're making an anime adaptation on IkeSen, I got really excited, then I found out it'll be more like a parody version with chibi characters... Uh okay? I won't deny I was a little disappointed but hell I watched it anyway and oh my, I never thought I'd enjoy it so much.

It's 3-4 mins per episode. If you've played the otome game you'd be laughing your ass out off your seat. Each episode is hilarious. The character voices are somewhat the same as the character voices of the game ...

Alright time to cut to the chase, first off, this is an otome anime based on the game. If you've have any prejudice towards the targeted demographic then this might not be suitable for you.

Secondly, now don't get me wrong, I watched this without playing the game first. It's definitely watchable alone as a standalone for anyone but it's better to play the game (visual novel). However, it would do you just to know that it's based on historical figures.

Story: 7
So far, this is pretty much a comedy-standalone story per episode. It covers the daily silly things that takes place there, so if ...
