Now, I’m definitively not an expert in Japanese history, but I’m fairly certain that Oda Nobunaga was not know for being a crazy psychopath who had an immense love for guns. I don’t understand why there are so many shows about him lately and how they all picture him in such different and weird ways, but it is starting to slowly annoy me a lot. I don’t think that this show does anything bad in itself, but I fear it is only a generic boring shounen with nothing special to it. Everything we saw this episode felt more like a fanservice for a very specific audience more than anything else to me. This is the perfect show for military fanatic who wish to see reincarnation of important figure of history fight against aliens… Now Jack the Ripper and Oda Nobunaga make sense as “fighter” against invader, but I’m not sure I’d have ever chosen Gandhi or Newton as candidate. Gandhi is a political figure who fought for human rights and political freedom through pacific means and meanwhile Newton was an anti-social asshole genius, but none of them had any fighting skills what so ever.
I really have trouble understanding the logic behind some of those shows this season, it just seems like they made an anime entirely to satisfy 3 people in an audience of millions. Nobunagun concept is so silly that it makes me wonder if the show is not a satire in disguise, but since there was not a single element of comedy in the show apart from the show universe, I feel like maybe this anime is just stupid and there is nothing more to it. I won’t be blogging that show, nor do I expect to watch it or recommend it to anyone, it is a silly shounen and there are a lot more much better shows out there than this joke.
