The name was changed to the point I couldn't really tell what it was at first, but as it was with Koihime, so shall it be with here. Sengoku Otome streaming!

Here is a PV with actual anime footage. No male characters in sight! Thank you producers of this anime for not including a lame male protagonist! Looks awesome!

I'm sensing a very Peter Pan/Wizard of Oz "and you were there!" setup from the first episode.

They're no Sphere, but the song's got that something. It also mentions the show by name, hearkening back to an era when theme songs did that.

A little something to whet the appetite.

Okay, on with the first episode review.

Given who voices her...

One expected that Nobunaga would sound like Revy...

And she does.

like the acoustical ending.Quite a nice song.yup agree with midonin this feels more like rakugou rather than hyakka or koihime.*just to note again, this anime or franchise got nothing to do with hyakka ryouran.totally different animal*

anyway shouldn't this be in current anime section

It was so unambitious... yet watch-able, maybe this can be a new category along with "so bad, it's good" and "so deep, it's boring", Anyway, everything was average, OP, ED, character designs, plot, service, ... everything!!!

At least they can upgrade the service, since everything else is quite unlikely to improve

And what's up with butchering the title... maiden -> girl (not that bad), warring states -> battle (worse, but passable), pink -> time (WTF)

I am of the opinion that ambition is unneeded in this kind of shows.
I also like the OP and chara designs, but I guess it's just a matter of personal taste.

an upgrade to the service-department would be gladly appreciated. but even if they don't, this is going to be a fun ride for me.

Otome's Nobunaga is modeled from Basara's Nobunaga Oda.

Good first episode. I'm a bit of a sucker for this sort of series. Cute lead, and some genuinely funny interactions. It wasn't as good as Koihime Musou (which I'll inevitably be comparing it to), but it's still solid.

My only complaint would be a relatively low level of fan-service. Usually this'd be the last thing I'd complain about, but in this kind of show; I expect it. But it's only the first episode. I hope more exposed female curves show up eventually, though.

A female cast with no worthless male getting in the way (as in Samurai Girls) would certainly be a great plus

However, it got a not very flattering article on Sankaku, recounting a not-so-good reception:
http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2011/0...e-without-ero/

"Sengoku Otome – Momoiro Paradox has aired to a less than positive reception, with viewers distinctly unimpressed by the new concept of an ero-anime with no actual ero, nipples, or even pantsu…"

I've yet to see the first episode and hope it's not quite that bad... would be really a shame for the nice all-female premise.

Again with the sometimes screwy double standards this fandom can have. (I don't excuse myself in this judgment. I am part of this fandom too.) So many shows are criticized for too much fanservice, but when a show tries to be respectful on the strength of its concept alone (such as this one), people want more fanservice. Is the true answer in the middle, or what? Because otherwise it looks inconsistent without reason.
