OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Hideyoshi (real name: Yoshino Hide[[note]]East Asian order: Hide Yoshino[[/note]]) can't do anything right. She's a trouble magnet who is in danger of failing, and with a test on the Sengoku period coming up, her future isn't looking bright. One night, she stops by a shrine and finds herself, through a series of accidents, being transported back to the actual Sengoku period. Only most of the major historical figures are now women, and Hideyoshi has no idea what to do or how to get home, so all she can do is help Nobunaga obtain the pieces of the Crimson Armor so she can take over Japan.

Originally a pachinko game, ''Sengoku Otome'' was adapted into an anime, ''Sengoku Otome ~Momo-iro Paradox~'' in the [[Spring2011Anime spring of 2011]].
----
!Tropes in ''Sengoku Otome'' include:

* AbsoluteCleavage: Oda Nobunaga
* ActionGirl: Just about the entire cast. Even Hideyoshi has her moments.
* AlternateUniverse: The Sengoku era Hideoyoshi landed in is ''not'' Earth's. For one, men don't exist. Literally (Except Shiro but he is an animal so its more of a world without human men).
** The clincher is the outcome of the Battle of Okehazama, which in reality would be about a small force overcoming the enemy's greater numbers with superior strategy, ended in Yoshimoto Imagawa's death and signaled the beginning of Nobunaga's conquest. Here, it was a recreation tournament, with kite fighting done as a tie-breaker and ended with Yoshimoto just giving Nobunaga the Crimson Armor's left leg piece. This is lampshaded by Hideyoshi and Shiro.
** The Incident at Honnou-ji still happens [[spoiler:but in actual history, happens after years of suffering repeated insults from Nobunaga, but was ultimately tipped when Nobunaga's actions resulted in the death of UsefulNotes/AkechiMitsuhide's mother. This caused him to divert from reinforcing UsefulNotes/ToyotomiHideyoshi to attacking Honnou-ji, and the rest is history. In the show, Mitsuhide was enduring an UnrequitedLove for Nobunaga and jealous of the attention she constantly gave Hideyoshi. Not only that, but Date-sensei pushed her into actually going along with the whole incident as a ploy to steal the Crimson Armor. Nobunaga doesn't die (in fact, no one does) and she helps Mitsuhide resolve the issue, but they later find that the Crimson Armor is gone.]]
* AndTheAdventureContinues
* AndYouWereThere: Hideyoshi's friends in the modern day resemble the people she'll meet in the past to an uncanny degree. Specifically, Mitsuhide looks like her friend Akerin, and Ieyasu resembles Tokunyan. [[spoiler: Masamune ''is'' actually her teacher Date-sensei, so that one is quite justified.]]
* AnimalMotifs: The Monkey for Hideyoshi and in Episode 2 Nobunaga is going to give Monkey as Hideyoshi's nickname but Hideyoshi hates it and prefers to have Hideyoshi as her nickname.
* BadassCape: Nobunaga
* BadBoss: Ieyasu
* BareYourMidriff
* BeamSpam: Nobunaga's method of fighting.
* BerserkButton: Lay a hand on Hideyoshi and Nobunaga will massacre you.
* {{BFG}}: Otomo Sourin's Don Frankie cannon.
* {{BFS}}: Nobunaga's sword is pretty big.
* BigBadEnsemble: [[spoiler:For the most part, there wasn't one, until Ieyasu pulls a FaceHeelTurn and fights the rest of the cast. Date-sensei tried to be this for about half of episode 13, but never really picked up, especially after Nobunaga destroys The Helmet of The Crimson Armor.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Ieyasu
--> '''Hideyoshi''': "She's cute, but [[LittleMissSnarker sharp-tongued]]."
--> '''Hideyoshi (again)''': [[LampshadeHanging Is]] [[AccidentalMisnaming Tokunyan]] [[LampshadeHanging actually mean and just keeps it hidden?]]
* BladeOnAStick: Kenshin
* BloodKnight: Shingen and Kenshin
* BookDumb: Hideyoshi
* BoundAndGagged: A lot of it. The girls don't seem to mind. Hideyoshi is lampshading it by the end of the series, after she's tied to a tree.
* CallingYourAttacks
* CerebusSyndrome: Episode 9, definitely.
* ChainmailBikini: Nobunaga. Other characters don similar armor, but wear extra clothing underneath. Not Oda.
* ChekhovsGun: Hideyoshi has a history book containing detailed information about the Sengoku era.
* ClothingDamage: Ayup.
* CPRCleanPrettyReliable: Done by Nobunaga to Mitsuhide when the latter was knocked out by smoke inhalation.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Oda Nobunaga has a black outfit and [[OminousOperaCape dark cape]] and she is one of the good guys.
* DeathGlare: Nobunaga does one after the Saigoku Three kidnaps Hideyoshi. It's pretty scary.
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Happens to poor Ake-rin at the end of episode 9, when she finally realizes that Nobunaga will never love her.]]
* {{Dojikko}}: Hideyoshi and Hanzo
* DistressBall: Hideyoshi has a knack for getting into trouble and be tied up. She even [[LampshadeHanging laments about it]] in episode 10 for [[RunningJoke being tied up for about 4 times in the show.]]
* EatsBabies: Mitsuhide was supposed to spread the rumor that Nobunaga was a FriendToAllChildren, but thanks to GossipEvolution, the only thing that made it through was that Mitsuhide was responsible.
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler:Ieyasu]] and later [[spoiler:Date]].
* [[EternalEnglish Eternal Japanese]]
* EvolvingCredits: Hideyoshi's phone goes through some changes the first episode full bars and the next two no bars until it's finally broken a few episodes later.
* EyepatchOfPower: Date Masamune, obviously.
* [[spoiler: FacelessGoons]]: Hanzou. [[spoiler: Or rather, the Hanzou tribe, which is a group of about 10 identically dressed kunoichi.]]
* FacelessMasses: Grayed-out generic character designs in the present. Also, don't expect most people without brightly colored hair to have speaking lines.
* FacialMarkings: Nobunaga
* {{Fanservice}}
* FieryRedhead: Nobunaga
* FishOutOfTemporalWater
* ForegoneConclusion: Anyone familiar with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incident_at_Honn%C5%8D-ji the Incident at Honnou-ji]] knows how things are likely to turn out. [[spoiler: Subverted: Hideyoshi landed in an AlternateUniverse, and all bets are off.]]
** However in Episode 10 [[spoiler:it does happen, if for entirely different reasons, and Nobunaga survives the event and resolves the issue with Mitsuhide.]]
* GenderFlip: LampshadeHanging by Hideyoshi.
* GiantWaistRibbon: Hideyoshi and Ieyasu have them
* [[GirlsAreReallyScaredOfHorrorMovies Girls Are Really Scared Of Horror Stories]]: In episode 5, when the cast was trapped in a forest and the only way out was to tell the circle of ghosts a hundred horror stories, Mitsuhide was shown to freak out at every story so easily, she couldn't finish her own and the party had to tie and gag her ''twice''.
* GirlishPigtails[=/=]{{Odango}}: Hideyoshi
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Shiro definitely thinks so.
* GottaCatchEmAll: The DismantledMacGuffin, the Crimson Armor.
* GratuitousEnglish: "UNJUST ACCESS" [[spoiler:flashes on Date-sensei's device when the Crimson Armor activates.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: Mitsuhide is jealous of all the attention that Nobunaga gives Hideyoshi.
* HeadbuttThermometer: Nobunaga performs this on Hideyoshi in Episode 8 to make sure her fever has broken. It doesn't help matters that there was [[spoiler: an [[IntimateHealing awkward kiss]] the previous night that was [[NotWhatItLooksLike actually anything but.]]]]
* TheHeart: Hideyoshi
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Japanese Version:
*** There's Creator/EriKitamura as UsefulNotes/AkechiMitsuhide, Creator/MegumiToyoguchi as UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga. Although, to the surprise of Franchise/SuperSentai fan, there's Yuka Hirata ([[Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger Mele]]) as UsefulNotes/DateMasamune.
*** [[Creator/NozomuSasaki Shiro]] is [[{{Anime/Monster}} Johan Liebert]]. Tropers, [[MindRape we're all fucked.]]
*** The moment Otomo Sourin opened her mouth, fans immediately recognized AiNonaka's puffy voice.
** English Version:
*** [[Creator/ShelleyCaleneBlack Nobunaga]] is [[Anime/{{Noir}} Mirelle]] and [[SorcererStabberOrphen Cleao]].
** In both the [[BrittneyKarbowski English dub]] and the [[RinaHidaka original Japanese version]], ([[ToAruMajutsuNoIndex Last Order]] is Hideyoshi.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: [[spoiler:Date]]
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: All based on characters from the Sengoku era. Hideyoshi even fits, being based on a general who came out of nowhere historically.
* HistoricalInJoke: Nobunaga famously said: "If a bird does not sing, kill it." She repeats this when Hideyoshi insists on keeping her broken cellphone.
** When Ieyasu [[spoiler:mugs Date-sensei for the Crimson Armor after biding her time for the circumstances to lead thusly]], she says "If a bird does not sing, wait for it to sing."
* HotSpringsEpisode
* HowWeGotHere: Episode 9.
* IAteWhat: Hideyoshi realizes a little too late what Sengoku-era medicine consists of. Primarily horse manure, with a few other things mixed in.
* IKnowMortalKombat: Hideyoshi sucked at nearly everything Mitsuhide challenged her at, except for the staff fighting, where she emulated a ShowWithinAShow Kung Fat. She still lost, but she impressed Nobunaga and showed that she wasn't completely unskilled.
* InTheNameOfTheMoon: Motonari, Motochika and Sourin introduce themselves with an elaborate roll call that, as soon as it finishes, causes them to be blown up by Nobunaga.
* IntimateHealing: Happens in episode 8 when Nobunaga gives medicine to an unconscious Hideyoshi.

** Mitsuhide in episode 9, during her [[LetsGetDangerous Let's Get Dangerous]] moment against Motochika and Sourin.

* {{Meganekko}}: Mitsuhide
* {{Miko}}: Ieyasu Tokugawa, or at least, that's how she dresses.
* NerdGlasses: Hanzou
* NoblewomansLaugh: Yoshimoto Imagawa's laugh can match Nobunaga's own EvilLaugh.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Nobunaga giving Hideyoshi some medicine looks like a kiss. It turns out Nobunaga didn't even know what a kiss was.
** More like Nobunaga didn't know what the term "kiss" since it's an English word commonly used by people in Hideyoshi's time. As soon as Hideyoshi explains what it is, Nobunaga promptly blushes and denies doing such a thing.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Ieyasu [[spoiler:is engaged in a plan to let Nobunaga complete the Crimson Armor and then take it for herself when that is done. Hideyoshi notices the difference in personality when she comes back from the woods behind the group.]]
* ObliviousToLove: Nobunaga really does not see that Mitsuhide admires her to the point where she wants to go all the way with everything the practice of ''shudo'' entails.
* OminousOperaCape: Nobunaga
* OneGenderRace and ImprobablyFemaleCast: There are no men in the world. As Hideyoshi [[LampshadeHanging notices]].
* OnTheNext: Notably, done in live action, with Rina Hidaka (Hideyoshi) and Yuka Hirata (Date) having a brief discussion about something sort of related to the next episode.
* TheOneGuy: Shiro
* PottyFailure: Mitsuhide wet herself some time during the ghost story telling.
* PunnyName: ''Hide Yoshi''no

* ShockAndAwe[=/=]SpamAttack: Kenshin's Lightning Spear Flurry.
* SlasherSmile: [[spoiler:Ieyasu at the end of Episode 10.]]
* StealthMentor: Masamune Date to Hideyoshi. Maybe. [[spoiler:Likely, since she is the same Date-sensei from the other world.]]
** As it turns out, [[spoiler:she's something of a HiddenAgendaVillain who only looks out for Hideyoshi as she's concerned for her student, but the character that better fits the mentor role is Shiro.]]
* StockFootage: When using Nobunaga's special move, Cruel Blade.
* {{Stripperiffic}}
* TalkingAnimal: Shiro, but only to Hideyoshi. He shuts up whenever there's someone else around. Until episode 11, where he breaks his silence when [[spoiler:he tries to stop Ieyasu.]]
* TheTalk: Unusual in that both parties already know the mechanics and outcome of the deed, but Hideyoshi was asking Shiro how it worked because there are no men around and she was wondering how the people in that world reproduce. He explains this with three DeliveryStork answers (that babies were delivered by storks, were found in cabbage patches and found inside bamboo shoots), which Hideyoshi actually takes for truth, not because of immediate stupidity, but because she has no other idea how else it could work in a world without men.
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Beatifully subverterd in epsidoe 9, When Nobunaga nukes the Saigoku three as they make thier over the top entrance.

* TrappedInAnotherWorld: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Hideyoshi.
* {{Tsundere}}: Hideyoshi has Mitsuhide pegged as one.
* UnrequitedLove: Poor Mitsuhide. Coincidentally, she's heading the same path as that other [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica tragic character]] voiced by Creator/EriKitamura. This is also the reason fans use to back up the [[ForegoneConclusion Foregone Conclusion ]] noted above.
* UnusualEyebrows: Nobunaga
* WelcomeBackTraitor: [[spoiler:Masamune Date Twice]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Masamune Date]]
* WolverineClaws: Mouri Motonari wields a sinister one in her left hand called the Triple Soul Claw that's able to read into people's emotions.

* {{Yandere}}: Mitsuhide is showing signs of it.
* YouWillBeBeethoven: Happens to Hideyoshi [[spoiler:and Date-sensei.]]
* YuriFan: A given, considering there are no men around, but Yoshimoto and Mitsuhide stand out.
* YuriGenre: Not that it's the biggest plot element in the series, but once again: no dudes, no straight.
