The July issue of Kadokawa's Entermix magazine revealed on Friday that the television anime adaptation of Naoki Shigeno's Nobunaga no Shinobi four-panel manga will premiere this fall. The anime's "Episode 0" screened at the AnimeJapan 2016 event in March and then streamed online in April
The cast includes:

Akitaro Daichi (Nurse Angel Ririka SOS, Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoi yo!! Masaru-san, Kamisama Kiss) is directing the anime at TMS Entertainment, and Junko Yamanaka (Detective Conan, Kamisama Kiss, ReLIFE) is designing the characters for animation.
The gag manga centers on a young female ninja named Chidori, whose dream is to help the Warring States-era warlord Oda Nobunaga to achieve his goals. Shigeno launched the manga in Young Animal in 2008, and Hakusensha published the manga's ninth compiled volume last July. Hakusensha published the second volume of Shigeno's Nobunaga no Shinobi - Owari no Tōitsu-ki (Nobunaga's Shinobi - Chronicle of Owari's Unification) manga on February 29.
