Yoshino “Hideyoshi” Hide is an average student who has to brush up on her history knowledge for a test in order to avoid summer classes.

As she goes to a shrine to pray for her success, she spots a woman performing a strange ritual inside the shrine. When she is spotted, she clumsily stumbles towards the woman and they both disappear.

When Hideyoshi comes to, she finds herself in a forest and discovers a blazing village, where a warrior resembling her friend Akemi is fighting against some vandals before a scantily-clad mysterious woman saves her.

Once find out, two women take Hideyoshi back to their palace, where they introduce themselves as Nobunaga Oda and Mitsuhide Akechi, and become curious about the technology Toyoomi has.

With Toyoomi seeming to think that she has warped to the Sengoku period, but with historical figures portrayed as women, Hideyoshi attempts to leave to find her way home, but gets lost and is retrieved by Nobunaga.

Nobunaga reveals her ambition to gather the pieces of the Crimson Armor, and Hideyoshi innocently agrees to help her. The episode ends with Toyoomi approached by a a helmet-wearing white puppy who, to her surprise, was somehow able to talk.

She is made Oda’s retainer after showing skill with a staff. She is nicknamed “Hideyoshi” after Toyotomi Hideyoshi.

Nobunaga Oda is a feudal lord who desires to gather pieces of a mystical armor to unite the nations. She is short tempered and violent. She wields a large sword and appears to be able to control flames.

Mitsuhide Akechi is at Nobunaga’s humble aide, who is often bemused at her acceptance of Hideyoshi’s odd behaviour and appears to secretly infatuated with Oda. To this end, she is prepared to do whatever it takes to “make Nobunaga happy”, which is why she is willing to acquire the Crimson Armor set on her feudal lord’s behalf.

Masamune Date is a warrior affiliated with Nobunaga and Mitsuhide, who is secretly Hideyoshi’s teacher from the present. She seems to be assisting with the hunt for the Crimson Armor.
