The official website for the television anime of Una Megurogawa's Oda Cinnamon Nobunaga (Oda Shinamon Nobunaga) manga began streaming a teaser promotional video for the manga on Friday. The video features actual versions of the dogs that will be animated and featured in the anime.

The site also revealed five new cast members:

  • Maaya Sakainu as Marie "Lily" Antoinette (actress' name resembles Maaya Sakamoto, but with the kanji for "moto" in the last name replaced with the similarly looking kanji for "dog")
  • Miyu Irisu as Lis (Akechi Mitsuhide) (actor's name resembles Miyu Irino but the kanji for "no" replaced with the two kanji for "risu" or "squirrel")
  • Gyū Fukyama as Ota Gyūichi (actor's name resembles Jun Fukuyama but the kanji for "Jun" is replaced with the kanji for "cow" that also appears in Ota Gyūichi's name)
  • Junichi Suwabe as Seira Honganji

The anime will premiere in January 2020.

The previously announced cast includes:

  • "Kenyū Horiuchi" as Oda Cinnamon Nobunaga (actor's name resembles Kenyuu Horiuchi, but with "Ken" written with the homophonic character for "dog" instead of "intelligence")
  • "Toshio Inugawa" as Date Boo Masamune (actor's name resembles Toshio Furukawa, but with "Inu" or "dog" instead of "Furu" or "old")
  • "Tesshō Kenta" as Takeda Lucky Shingen (actor's name resembles Tesshō Genda, but with "Ken" written with the homophonous character for "dog" instead of "mysterious")
  • "Naoji Sugita" as Ueusugi Julian Kenshin (actor's name resembles Tomokazu Sugita. "Naoji" is the name of Sugita's dog that passed away last year)
  • "Takahiro Sakurainu" as Imagawa Gilbert Yoshimoto (actor's name resembles Takahiro Sakurai, but with the "i" of "Sakurai" written with the character "inu" for "dog" instead of the character for "well")
  • "Kazuhiko Inuue" as Kuroda Charlie Yoshitaka (actor's name resembles Kazuhiko Inoue, but with the character "inu" for "dog" instead of the character for "well")
  • "Kenichi Suzumura" as Sanada Marutarō Yukimura (actor's name resembles Kenichi Suzumura, but with "Ken" written with the character for "dog" instead of the character for "health")

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, and cast members "Kenyū Horiuchi" and "Toshio Inugawa" are performing the ending theme song for the series under the unit name "Cinnamon-tachi."

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.

The manga has been running in Tokuma Shoten's Monthly Comic Zenon magazine, as well as on the Web Comic Zenyon service since May 2016.
