Oda Nobuna no Yabō Historical Comedy's 1st Promo Posted (Updated)

posted on by Egan Loo
Miyage Kasuga's story of boy transported to gender-reversed Sengoku era

The official website for next year's Oda Nobuna no Yabō (Oda Nobuna's Ambition) television anime series began streaming its first promotional movie on Thursday. Studio Gokumi is collaborating with the anime studio Madhouse on this project.

Miyage Kasuga's original light novels follow a modern-day high school boy named Yoshiharu Sagara who is transported to Japan's Sengoku Jidai (Era of the Warring States) — except the well-known warriors of the era are female. Oda Nobuna, a cute girl who happens to be a warlord, nicknames Yoshiharu "Monkey" and takes him under her wing.

The series title is a wordplay on Nobunaga no Yabō or Nobunaga's Ambition, KOEI's simulation game franchise inspired by the real-life historical figure Oda Nobunaga. Miyama-Zero illustrates both Oda Nobuna no Yabō and another light novel series, High School DxD. The Oda Nobuna no Yabō novels have sold over 400,000 copies since 2009, and the seventh volume shipped on November 15.
