"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 ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (7/12 eps)
First thing's first, this is based on the otome game Ikemen Segoku: Romances Across Time. Although it is rare for this to happen, otome games can be adapted into anime. It is best to look on both sides, so I will refer to the game a few times, to make comparisons, as I do play it.

Art- The first point I want to touch is the art. I personally do not find the chibi styles to fit these warlords, however, it could work for these short 3 minute clips. To add, at the last five or so seconds, there is a short animation of a character ...

Preliminary (2/12 eps)
Hello! This is my first review and I consider myself more of a 'casual' anime fan so I won't really go that much in-depth (not that there is much to begin with). Also, dropped it at episode 2.

Story: 1/10
Since there are only 3 minutes per episode, the story is lacking. Each episode is a slice-of-life (welp, at least 'till episode 2 'cause that's where I dropped it) type of episode that showcases the characters "funny banter". There is not much more to it, but hey, I dropped it at episode 2 so there might be a story?

Art: 3/10
If you can support the 'chibi-esque' character models ...
