Miyage Kasuga's story of boy transported to gender-reversed Sengoku era

The official website for this summer's Oda Nobuna no Yabō (Oda Nobuna's Ambition) television anime series began streaming its second promotional movie on Friday. Studio Gokumi is collaborating with the anime studio Madhouse on this project.

Miyage Kasuga's original light novels follow 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 series title is a wordplay on Nobunaga no Yabō or Nobunaga's Ambition, Koei's simulation game franchise inspired by the real-life historical figure Oda Nobunaga. Miyama-Zero illustrates both Oda Nobuna no Yabō and another light novel series, High School DxD. The anime is being directed by Yuuji Kumazawa, and Masashi Suzuki (Shuffle!, Minami-ke: Okawari) is overseeing the scripts. Yuka Takashina is designing the characters.
