Anime Sengoku Collection is another spin on the Warring States period of the three Kingdoms – Ieyasu, Nobunaga Oda, Masamune Date, and others (all as cute girls) are transported to our modern day world. So far each episode has focused on a different general, how they adapt, and one who is trying to return home.
The anime started airing on April 5th on TV Tokyo and is streamed outside of Japan on Crunchyroll. Check out our Crunchyroll Updates page for all the latest episodes or hit the link for Sengoku Collection tagged posts and anime episodes (linked to Crunchyroll).
