Hidetoshi Takahashi (Aquarion Logos, Are You Lost? episode director) is directing the anime at Pierrot. Maruo Kyōzuka (The Last -Naruto the Movie-) is in charge of series scripts. Hisashi Kagawa (Sailor Moon S: The Movie, She, The Ultimate Weapon, Toriko) is designing the characters. Akane Kumada is also performing the opening theme song for the anime.
In the "one-of-a-kind samurai-general-reincarnated-as-a-canine comedy," Nobunaga perishes at Honnōji as in history, and reincarnates in modern-day Japan as a dog named Cinnamon. Other Warring States era warlords such as Takeda Shingen eventually join him, also as dogs.
