The fifth issue of Young Animal magazine of 2016, which will go on sale on February 26, has announced that the 4-koma historical comedy manga Nobunaga no Shinobi will be adapted into a TV anime.

The magazine also announced TMS Entertainment as the studio responsible for animation production. Episode 0 of the anime will be screened at AnimeJapan 2016, which will be held at the end of March at Tokyo Big Sight. Last week, seiyuu Kappei Yamaguchi previewed the series character designs on his Twitter account.

Nobunaga no Shinobi is drawn by Naoki Shigeno and has been serialized in the magazine since 2008. It currently has nine volumes in print. A spin-off series focusing on young Oda Nobunaga, Nobunaga no Shinobi: Owari Touitsu-ki, has also been serialized in Young Animal Arashi since 2012. That series has one compiled volume in print with a second scheduled to go on sale on February 29.

Synopsis
Chidori is a little ninja girl living in Japan's Warring States Period. One day, Oda Nobunaga rescued her from drowning in a river. Since that day, Chidori knew she wanted to serve Nobunaga. Five years later, she and Sukezou (who likes her) head out from their ninja village, determined to serve Oda Nobunaga! (Source: MangaHelpers)

What about Takeda Shingen? Tokugawa Ieyasu? Toyotomi Hideyoshi?

Why always Nobunaga?


Nobunaga is the only true G out of them all, so he always gets the spot.

They are all in the manga. We'll see whether they will appear in the anime.
That's not what I mean. I'm saying about them as the main focus instead of Nobunaga for once.

Meh, might watch it.

My uni just blocked the link to Nobunaga no Shinobi: Owari Touitsu-ki because of pornography lol, guess that's about right considering it's on Young Animal Arashi.
Guessing this will be a short.
