The official Twitter account for the Oda Nobuna no Yabō television series tweeted an image from the April issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Comp Ace magazine on Wednesday that announces a summer broadcast for the anime. A manga adaptation of the same series has been running in the magazine since July 2011.
Originally a light novel by Miyage Kasuga, the historical romantic comedy follows a modern-day high school boy named Yoshiharu Sagara who is transported to Japan's Sengoku Jidai (Era of the Warring States) — except the well-known warriors of the era are female. Oda Nobuna, a cute girl who happens to be a warlord, nicknames Yoshiharu "Monkey" and takes him under her wing.
The anime will be directed by Yuuji Kumazawa, and Masashi Suzuki (Shuffle!, Minami-ke: Okawari) will be responsible for series composition. Yuka Takashina will be the anime's character designer, and Madhouse Studios and Studio Gokumi will animate the series.
