The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX on April 8 at 12:00 a.m. (effectively April 9). The show stars: (Note: Historical characters' names are written in Japanese order with family name first.)

The romantic comedy manga's story centers on Nobunaga, a middle school teacher who constantly dreams of an adoring beautiful girl appearing in front of him. One day, Kichō, the 14-year-old wife of the real-life Sengoku (Warring States) period warlord Oda Nobunaga, does appear in front of him after having apparently traveled through time. She mistakes the present-day Nobunaga for the historical Oda Nobunaga, and tries to get him to get her pregnant.
Noriyoshi Sasaki (Ojisan to Marshmallow, My Wife is the Student Council President+!, King's Game The Animation, Holmes of Kyoto) is directing the anime at the studio Seven. Arikura Arika (Shūdengo, Capsule Hotel de, Jōshi ni Binetsu Tsutawaru Yoru.) is in charge of the series scripts. Takashi Nishikawa (animation director on Strange+, Holmes of Kyoto) is designing the characters.
Voice actress unit Pyxis will perform the show's opening theme song "Aiseyo Minna, Hai!" Pyxis is made up of voice actresses Moe Toyota and Miku Itō. Aki Hata wrote the lyrics, and [email protected] composed and arranged the song.
Konno (Koe de Oshigoto!) launched the manga in Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine in May 2017. Futabasha published the manga's third compiled book volume in December.
