Synopsis

The series is a historical drama aesthetically and boldly adapting the life of Oda Nobunaga in his teens up to his time as a warlord against his brother, Nobuyuki. (Source: MAL News)

Oda Nobunaga has probably been the subject of more anime titles than any other figure in Japanese history, and deservedly so; while he may not have lived long enough to finish the job of uniting all of Japan, he certainly laid the groundwork for it to happen, and was an innovator in both military tactics and economic practices. He was also a notoriously colorful figure, with some ideas that may have been too radical for his own good. While most stories about him have focused on his adult years, this series (or at least the first episode, anyway) takes the highly unusual approach of examining his earlier years. That’s what makes it a surprisingly fascinating view.

The first episode mostly focuses on events that happened in 1545, when Nobunaga was 12 years old. As near as I can determine, some of what is shown in this episode is being extrapolated from actual historical records, while in other places the story is fudging on details a lot. Among details that are probably accurate are that Kippoushi (later Nobunaga) was not well-liked by his mother, was fascinated with firearms from an early age, collected Western art, and hung around with youths well below his social status. The story is, however, fudging greatly on the appearance of Kitsuno, who would become Nogunaga’s favorite concubine and the mother of three of his children. According to historical accounts, Nobunaga was struck by her beauty during their first encounter (as shown here), but that happened about a decade later. Kistuno is also shown here as being significantly older that Nobunaga, when in fact she was four years younger, and thus would have been only eight years old at this time. Seeing how the story will later make this jive with actual history could be interesting.

Freed from historical context, the story makes a decent tale about a young man who is not fully bound by tradition as he grows into his own. It shows him as a likable rascal who is a quick thinker and bold schemer, one who is loyal enough to his friends that he’s willing to stand up to a father who intimidates him. That shades him towards being a more typical anime protagonist, but the historical context helps offset that. Technical merits are respectable but unexciting.

The episode’s closer (which is presumably going to be the regular opener) suggests that this is eventually going to become a bishonen fest. The series will lose me if that happens, but as long as it sticks to the hard history then I may keep watching. You can also Kochouki: Wakaki Nobunaga anime watch online and free anime download.

A Studio Deen show that is decent to good? Colour me surprised, since most of their shows are low quality garbage. In the case of this series, as much as it is for the famous (and precariously overused) Sengoku era warrior Oda Nobunaga, it was a heck of a wild ride knowing his young life, and quite possibly the road and path to the great warrior of which we all know him by in long-lasting fashion of history footnotes. The only seemingly "orígjnal" stuff that the production staff added into the mix was the BL aspect of the male characters that seemingly is the trial and tribulations of followers and retainers of the central characters Nobunaga and his brother Nobukatsu. Needless to say, as much as it as for being otome-ish, being a straight guy watching Otome shows isn't my shtick, but it's full of loopholes and the uncomfortable feelings of manipulation. I'm sure the female otakus who love otome-style shows will dig this, but I'm fine and neutral about it. As mentioned, Studio Deen's art and animation was QUITE exceptional (that is to their standards). I thought I was gonna see the same old Deen shitty stuff, but I'd have to say that I was pleasantly surprised at how good this series was fleshing out the historical aspects that don't quite come close to replicating the Sengoku Era, but for what it is, it's above average production. The OST is particularly the most important element when it comes to historical anime, and this series managed to nail the seemingly very particulars of history, and without a doubt, it managed pleasantly too. Had fun with the OP, and it's so catchy that I couldn't skip this genericness of a song. May'n's ED was also plenty fine, though in declining quality as per her recent song repertoire. Coming this close as an original take of Oda Nobunaga's young life ís quite the show to look upon, but at the same time, it's nothing to marvel about. If historical anime is your shtick, please check this out. Otherwise, as always with Studio Deen stuff, pass it up.
