Sentai Filmworks Adds The Ambition of Oda Nobuna
posted on by Karen Ressler
The story, based on Mikage Kasuga's light novels, follows 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. Yuuji Kumazawa directed the series off scripts from Masashi Suzuki (Shuffle!, Minami-ke: Okawari) and Yuka Takashina designed the characters. Studio Gokumi collaborated with the anime Studio Madhouse on the project.
