The official website for this summer's Oda Nobuna no Yabō (Oda Nobuna's Ambition) television anime series began streaming its third promotional movie on Friday. Studio Gokumi is collaborating with the anime studio Madhouse on this project.
The official website has also revealed more cast members to the series. Takahiro Sakurai will play Hattori Hanzō, Emiri Katō will play Oda Nobukatsu, and Kiyoyuki Yanada will play Saitō Yoshitatsu.
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 anime is being directed by Yuuji Kumazawa, and Masashi Suzuki (Shuffle!, Minami-ke: Okawari) is overseeing the scripts. Yuka Takashina is designing the characters.
The series will premiere in Japan on July 8.
