Oda Nobuna no Yabou
Suddenly finding himself in the Sengoku period, average high school student Yoshiharu Sagara is about to be killed on the battlefield. He is saved by none other than the man who would later become the respected Hideyoshi Toyotomi, but at the cost of the latter's life. With the course of history altered as a result of these events, Yoshiharu tries to make things right again. Yoshiharu, however, is surprised to discover that the people he meets, the places he encounters, and the historical events he is dragged into are somewhat different than what he remembers from his favorite Sengoku era video game – Nobunaga's Ambition. Yoshiharu soon discovers that, in this version of the Sengoku period, Nobunaga Oda does not exist – instead being replaced by a young woman named Nobuna Oda who holds his position as a daimyō. Yoshiharu begins working under Nobuna's command, with hopes of correcting the course of history and finding his way back home to the present-day world.
Everybody loves isekai, everybody loves historical genderflipping, and everybody loves senki. How could anybody resist a triple threat of the trio?
Hell yeah! I really liked the anime. Would love to read how the story continues.
Too bad it's a Kadokawa title... Also, 20 volumes and still ongoing.
You got a up-vote from me
The first ten volumes (Japanese language only) are on sale on Bookwalker JP for 30 JPY each.

YES! I need more of this! this needs to get translated so I can read the entire story
Judging from my experience, if a Novel gets a terrible anime adaptation the original is usually pretty good (11Eyes coff coff).
And of course, if the anime adaptation is really good, the original must be a masterpiece that blows your mind.
I still listen to Takanashi Yasuharu's OSTs, especially Tenka Fubu.
How the anime didn't get a second season or this LN hasn't been translated yet is a fucking mistery I will never be able to unveil.
Also, this was Isekai before it would become mainstream.
Bleach and fairy tail were the first anime i watched but it wasn't until i watched ONNY that i really got interested i anime, funny thing is that it also got me to read light novels because i just HAD to know what happened next. please pick this up cause iknow i not only picked up tidbits about another era but i also got way more interested in japanese history
