The Facts are These:
A Japanese high school teen walls off a fence in modern times and lands in the Warring States Period. There he meets Oda Nobunaga, and they look identical. He takes the place of Oda Nobunaga and starts his conquest of Japan.
This series is great, it has good action, exceptional characters and very horrible animation. God I hate CG in anime, but I won’t get into that right now I have already talked about that in a Here Comes the Anger Train post. If you take away the horrible CG that you get used to continue the show it is exceptional. The characters are great and it accurate to my anime only background to Japanese History, though I did not see any Mechas. No, it is a great show that is fun to watch and has an overall awesome story. It was cool to see that other people who were brought back in time as well did not know much about history as well. Though with the CG they tried to make it look like classical Japanese painting style, which was cool to see them try that.
Behind the Scenes:
The series was based off the manga created by Ayumi Ishii, with the series also winning the 2011 Shogakukan Manga Award for Shounen Manga. The series was directed by newcomer Fujikawa Yuusuke, with this being the only anime that he has worked on that I could find. The series was produced by studio Fuji TV which has made such series as Eden of the East and Great Teacher Onizuka. There is no opening song except for some great, but short instrumental. Though there is a great ending song that I enjoy. The ending song is “Fukagyaku Replace” by MY FIRST STORY. Here it is for you to enjoy…
A Brief View of the World:
The world of Nobunaga Concerto it that of the Warring States period of Japan. Where states are fighting to claim land and expand, this movement is led by Saburo or as he is called in the Warring States Period Nobunaga Oda. This is what makes Nobunaga Concerto’s world different from the modern world because there is evidence of a higher power working bringing people into the past to keep the history as we know it as happening to happen.
The series is great with an awesome story and great characters, but the God damn animation brings it down. I loved the story, but why do they do this to historical shows.
The series is extremely rewatchable with 10 episodes, that is if you want to suffer through the terrible animation for a great story than it is worth it.
Kingdom – Because who doesn’t love a show with a great story, but shitty animation.
Kyo Kara Maoh! – For another slips into another world and becomes the ruler.
I do not own any of the above used pictures and/or video they belong to their original creators, Fuji TV and Ayumi Ishii.
