She awakens only to find herself transported in the Warring States era. She mistakes Akechi Mitsuhide for her school friend Akerin and she stares at her, while she tries to defeat a group of criminals who sent fire to the land.Then before her eyes, an aggressive red haired woman named Oda Nobunaga appears out of the fire and using her Blade of Fury, attacks the terrorists, then she asks Hideyoshi what her name is.
Nobunaga takes her to her castle, afterwards Hideyoshi tells her that she needs to go home. However she is unable to catch a train home, as she is now trapped in the past.
She stops the night at the castle and makes an agreement with Nobunaga to help her track the Crimson Armor, which she does accompanying Mitsuhide and Nobunaga, on their quest to summon the full armour with them competing against warriors and lords across Japan to gain their parts. She also meets a dog named Shiro who gives her advice.
