Works inspired by Oda Nobunaga

Oda Nobunaga is famous for conquering and helping the unification of Japan in the Sengoku period. Oda Nobunaga along with Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu shaped the history of Japan. This has resulted in several works, such as movies, dramas, anime and games. In this article we are going to recommend 10 works so that you can travel back in time and get to know the whole history of Oda Nobunaga.

Nobunaga Concert

Speaking of time travel, Nobunaga Concerto is a manga series by Ayumi Ishii that tells the story of Saburō, a student who ends up traveling in time to the Sengoku Period and ends up replacing the famous Oda Nobunaga, this manga yielded an anime adaptation and a great drama. I even wrote an article talking more about this work, you can read by clicking here.


Sengoku Basara

Sengoku Basara is a game similar to Dynasty Warriors released for PS2/Wii/PSP. But it also yielded a 2 season anime. The difference in this story is that the protagonist is Date Masamune and Oda Nobunaga is seen as a perverse villain who calls himself "The Sixth Heavenly Demon". The anime and the game is very fictitious and fanciful, but it is successful among young people. Speaking of games about the Sengoku period that became anime, there is also Sengoku Musou da Koei.

Oda Nobuna no Yabou

Again speaking of time travel, this anime tells the story of Sagara Yoshiharu who ends up going back in time to the Sengoku period, but several historical figures of the time are girls, including Oda Nobunaga. Those typical anime transform characters moe moe, to create a harem and fan service. Despite this, the story won rave reviews, and is highly recommended. Speaking of female versions, another anime with female versions of Nobunaga is Sengoku Otome: Momoiro Paradox.

The article is still halfway through, but we recommend also reading:
