Nobunaga the Fool
Why? Why did they decide to air two Oda Nobunaga-related shows and on the very same day? I have to admit that they were both quite amusing and that I am interested in both of them, but still… Two of these shows on the same day? We’ll see…
I’m actually satisfied with the artwork. All the characters look pretty good and the details are uncanny. Those mechs (yes, mechs) look good, too. The only bad thing about the artwork is that Jeanne looks way too plain compared to the other characters. I definitely wouldn’t be able to recognize her out of a ten character line-up.
I don’t know what to say about the story… Accuracy? Now such thing here. Oda Nobunaga must be turning in his grave because of this. I still fail to understand why the Japanese continue to create stories about this man. Honestly…
It’s really mediocre. It has nothing to do with the period in which Oda Nobunaga was alive. Hell, that man is considered a villain if I’m not mistaken. People refer to him as a tyrant or a fool, which probably inspired this title. And yet the author’s describe him as a hero of sorts… Very strange. I suggest you watch the first episode and decide afterwards if you want to continue watching or not.
Plot Summary: The Western Planet and the Eastern Planet.
Once upon a time, the two sides were bound by the “Dragon Pulse” spanning the heavens.
The civilization that once had prospered has now turned to a tale of dreams, as the inextinguishable flames of war tear the realm asunder. The two planets remain engulfed in endless battles.
The return of the super technology known as “sacred treasures” could revolutionize the world order, but no one knows of them but one person—a “heretical girl.”
A girl from the Western Planet, Jeanne Kaguya d’Arc, saw heavenly visions of the birth of a “Star Messiah” who will save the world. She embarks on a journey to the Eastern Planet with Leonardo da Vinci, “the one who observes the world.” They come across the heretic of the Eastern Planet and “the greatest fool of the day,” Oda Nobunaga.
