The play will run from April 19-23 at Hakuhinkan Theater in Tokyo. Yōsuke Miyagi is directing and writing the script.
Mobile game developer CYBIRD announced during a stage event at the Animate Girls Festival 2016 event in November that the game is receiving an anime adaptation with all 11 main characters this year. Mika Kajiyama (Neo Angelique, Ayahatori Shōkanjō, Ore to Atashi no Kareshi-sama) launched a manga adaptation in Akita Shoten's Monthly Princess magazine on January 6.
CYBIRD launched the Ikemen Sengoku: Toki o Kakeru Koi (Hot Guy Sengoku: Love That Jumps Through Time) iOS and Android game in June 2015. The game is free-to-play, and is part of the "Ikemen Series" of historical romance games for female players. The games take place in different eras of history. The game is inspiring a port for the PS Vita titled Ikemen Sengoku: Toki o Kakeru Koi ~Arata Naru Deai~ (New Meeting) by Idea Factory's Otomate brand. The game was originally slated for fall 2016, but is now scheduled for a 2017 release. Idea Factory began streaming a promotional video for the PS Vita version in August.
In the original mobile game's story, the protagonist is sent back in time to the Sengoku (Warring States) period, where she meets notable historical figures such as Oda Nobunaga (voiced by Tomokazu Sugita), Date Masamune (Kazuki Katou), and Sanada Yukimura (Yoshimasa Hosoya).
