The anime focuses on making Autobots more popular, so the hosts ask for Sanada's advice as, what with the Sengoku Basara games being so well-liked. The Autobots try emulating their guest by imitating his introduction speech, drawing similarities and differences between their respective works, and even trying to come up with humorous special attacks.
