Tokyo-based smartphone game company Cybird announced at the Animate Girls Festa 2016 event on Saturday that Ikemen Sengoku: Toki wo Kakeru Koi (Love That Leapt Through Time), one of its popular "Ikemen" (Handsome Men) otome game series for iOS and Android, will get an anime adaptation sometime in 2017.
The series has had eight titles so far, such as Ikemen Bakumatsu: Unmei no Koi (Fateful Love), Ikemen Oukyu: Mayonaka no Cinderella (Ikemen Royal Palace: Cinderella in Midnight), and the most recent Ikemen Kakumei: Alice to Koi no Mahou (Ikemen Revolution: Alice and Love Magic), and has attracted 15 million registered useres in Japan.
Ikemen Sengoku was launched in June 2015. The story centers on a female protagonist who accidentally time travels back to the sengoku period of Japan in the end of the 16th century during her trip
in Kyoto. She encounters Nobunaga Oda (CV: Tomokazu Sugita), one of the most powerful daimyo/
warlords, at the Honno-ji incident on 1582. Nabunaga likes her on sight, and other 11 famous daimyos
who appear in front of her, including Hideyoshi Toyotomi (Kousuke Toriumi), Yukimura Sanada (Yoshimasa
Hosoya), Masamune Date (Kazuki Kato), and Ieyasu Tokugawa (Toshiki Masuda), are all ikemen/handsome
guys. With whom will she fall in love?
