Nobunagun Historical Figures vs. Monsters Anime Slated for January

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

The website for Masato Hisa's Nobunagun manga series announced that the anime adaptation is slated for January.

The "stylish action" manga opens with high school girl Shio Ogura visiting Taiwan on school trip, when she is caught in a surprise attack by monsters called "Evolved Invaders." The military is useless against them, but in the middle of the chaos, the mysterious E-Gene Holder agents from the government organization DOGOO appear.

Thanks to technology, these agents wield weapons infused with the spirits of great historical figures. Gandhi is now a barrier, and Newton is a gravitational maneuver. When her friend is endangered, Shio awakens the ability to wield one such weapon — the great Japanese warlord Oda Nobunaga as a giant machine gun.

Hisa (Area 51, Jabberwocky, Grateful Dead) launched the Nobunagun manga in Comic Earth Star in 2011, and Earth Star Entertainment will publish the third compiled book volume on September 12.
