Is how the Sengoku Otome op felt to me.
First ep was a lot more fun than I’d expected and left me looking forward to more. If you can imagine a cross between Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Mai-HiME, and the Sengoku era, then clearly you wrote Sengoku Otome. (Don’t take that comparison too seriously since the show isn’t as brilliant as Bill and Ted or Mai-HiME as of yet.)
Also I was surprised by the relative lack of fanservice except for the sexy ending video. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover!
