Publisher Futabasha announced on Tuesday that Azure Konno‘s Nobunaga Sensei no Osanazuma (Mr. Nobunaga’s Young Bride) manga will get a television anime adaptation that will premiere next April.
The romantic comedy manga’s story centers on Nobunaga, a middle school teacher who constantly dreams of a beautiful girl who loves him appearing in front of him. One day, the 14-year-old Kichō, the wife of the real-life Warring States period warlord Oda Nobunaga, does appear in front of him, 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.
The cast includes (Note: Names of historical Japanese characters are written with last name first.):
Akari Uehara as Saitō Kichō, a 14-year-old girl who came from the Sengoku (Warring States) era. She should have been betrothed to Oda Nobunaga in a political marriage, but she time-traveled to the present day.
Ari Ozawa as Ikoma Kitsuno, Oda Nobunaga’s concubine who was transported from the Warring States era to the present day. She lost her life at the age of 29, but was transported in a younger form.
