The Ambition of Oda Nobuna
High-school student and Nobunaga's Ambition fan Yoshiharu Sagara suddenly finds himself transported back in time to Japan's Sengoku Jidai (Era of the Warring States) and stuck in the middle of a battlefield. When Nobunga's future advisor Hideyoshi Toyotomi saves Yoshiharu's life at the cost of his own, Yoshiharu quickly realises that the course of history has been altered and he must take Hideyoshi's place. Easier said than done when he also finds that Nobunga Oda doesn't exist and instead a cute young woman by the name of Nobuna Oda holds his position as damio.
The Ambition of Oda Nobuna is based on a light novel series written by Mikage Kasuga and illustrated by Miyama-Zero (High School DxD) that has eleven volumes published by Fujimi Shobo under the Fujimi Fantasia Bunko label. 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.
This anime adaption was directed by Yuuji Kumazawa (Sunday Without God) and Masashi Suzuki (Shuffle!, Minami-ke: Okawari) handled series composition and wrote the scripts. Chief animation director Yuka Takashina (Inari Kon Kon, Transformers: Energon) also handled adapting the character designs for animation and Yasuharu Takanashi (Fairy Tail, Log Horizon) composed the music. Studio Gokumi collaborated with Studio MADHOUSE on this project.
The series ran for 12 episodes covering volumes 1 to 4 of the light novels from July 2012. Crunchyroll streamed the series and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series in August and released the series in North America this month. You can view the dub cast here.
