I'm actually really disappointed in myself for not seeing this sooner??? I absolutely love Kato Kazuki and saw he was in this game awhile back but I didn't think it'd get an adaptation. So happy! I hope he gets more roles as well. Loved him as Kento of course in BPro. Ahhh I am just so excited!!!

The first thing that came to my mind was this:

I haven't seen any decent otomege adaptation except for Norn9 in recent seasons so will eagerly wait for this since it has a pretty formidable voice-cast list.

THIS ^^^^^^ More anime adaptions from otome games is always welcome especially cute samurai boys which are my weakness gahh <3

The image kind reminds me of a mix of both Hakuoki and Fushigi Yuugi, as much as love reverse harems there hasn't be one that can live up to Fushihi Yuugi so I'm hoping this can cause Hakuoki was good but it lack in the romance department </3

AWWW SUGITA IS IN THE LIST! Definitely going to watch it, I heard good things about it from some Otome games lovers. Hope this one won't be lame. >:3

Not a fan of harem/otome, but as what I always say when watching/reading this type of genre, I'll probably watch it for the history.
I actually thought this was an adaptation for the game and manga Geten no Hana, huh, guess I'm wrong.
Ayy Kashuu's seiyuu's in the list. Nice to see Sugita-san in the list, he'll be a cool Nobunaga for sure.

If the female lead turns out to be another useless shoujo heroine I hope they won't bother including her, anyway the art style lookes pretty good I hope they keep it that way

Welp, I'm gonna watch this (even though I don't mind Game Adaptations) for Sugita Lol.

But I want to see the director and staff members around soon. xD

I expect this to be 100% historically accurate and educational.

Yes, yesh, yesh, give me Sengoku bishies. I want romance~ Hopefully the female lead won't be a complete idiot.
