Watch Battle Girls - Time Paradox

Battle Girls – Time Paradox is a historical Japanese anime with a creative and surprising twist. The main character of the show is Yoshino Hide. Yoshino is an average teenage girl. Her only quirk is that she often gets into trouble, no matter how hard she tries to avoid it. Once day, Yoshino goes to pray at a local shrine. While she is praying, Yoshino spots a stranger doing something odd. It seems like the stranger is performing some type of magical spell. Yoshino jumps up, in order to move away. Unfortunately, her knack for getting in trouble comes into play at that moment. Through a series of unfortunate accidents, Yoshino bumps into the stranger, sending her spell into disarray. Things get even worse when the messed up spell transports Yoshino into another world.

After the spell has completed, Yoshino finds herself in a land that looks very much like the feudal period of Japan. However, Yoshino quickly realizes that there is one big difference between the past she knew and the world she is now in. There are no men. Every person Yoshino encounters is a woman.

The spell has dumped Yoshino right in the middle of a dangerous battle. Luckily, two women quickly gather her up and carry her away from the battle. Once in a safe place, Yoshino comes to know the pair as Oda Nobunaga and Akechi Mitsuhide. These are actual historical figures, and Yoshino recognizes their names. However, unlike their historical counterparts, these warriors are women.

Yoshino soon realizes that there is really nowhere else for her to go. Nobunaga tells Yoshino that she is looking for the pieces of the Crimson Armor, which will give her great power and allow her to become the leader of Japan. Wanting to help her new friends, Yoshino agrees to search for the pieces of the armor. Nobunaga makes Yoshino her retainer and, together with Mitsuhide, the group sets out on an exciting quest.
