    Ridiculous concept, yet somehow I'm enjoying it...
    For starters, Nobunaga the Fool is:
    - Part giant mech anime
    - Part "lets take some historical figures and bastardize them" anime
    - Part science fiction/fantasy anime
    - Part Sengoku period anime
    - Part action adventure anime

    My logical side is telling me I probably shouldn't be enjoying a mash-up like that, yet somehow I am, and in a really strange way it works. The animation is ...

    This show is exaclty why I don't review shows in the first couple of weeks.
    This show had such promise. First 10 episodes we well written and well executed.
    However, the remaining episodes have turned in to poorly written garbage with plot strings that make a 70 year old man with Tourette Syndrome seem graceful.

    The character development is piss poor as well, the main protagonist does all his growth in the first 12 episodes then he turns into a punching bag for every ...

    Nobunaga The Fool....Not So Much. (MUST READ)
    Nobunaga the Fool had a good start, until episode 3.The rest was so needlessly dark, confusing and rushed.In therms of the story,I feel that this anime is throwing everything at you in a short among of time: This happen, that happen, this person died, that person died, new stuff happen, this is happening, this one died too-SLOW DOWN! When they are trying to make it big, epic and serious, they ...

    Nobunaga The Fool - In the Cards
    There seems to be a lot of shows taking inspiration from the story of Oda Nobunaga lately, but I suspect none are quite like Nobunaga the Fool. Imagine, if you will, two worlds: the Star of the East, comprised entirely of traditional Japanese lands and personalities from throughout history - Nobunaga, Himiko, etc. - and the Star of the West, featuring historical (and fictional) places and figures ...

    I'm pleasantly suprised
    This review was written after watching episode 4, so it could be subject to change in the future. I almost dropped this anime at ep1 for so many reasons. I couldn't stand the fact that Leonardo da Vinci and Jeanne d'Arc have joined Nobunaga in Japan to fight against king Arthur and Caesar? I'm not even entirely sure what they were doing there. And I will never forget the meteor who was "Ballsy ...

    Rocky but overall a great concept.
    If you dig deeper into this anime besides the names, You'll see it has a great meaning overall and the crazy plot twist at the end really sums up the overall ideology of the protagonist, the true protagonist. Though you may not understand until sleeping on it. I think any open minded viewer would enjoy this.

    S' fun. Lot's of fun. Makes as much sense as one of Rob Ford's press confrences, but fun nonetheless
    I have absolutely no idea what's going on. Save me He-man! No but really this anime is confusing. It's really, really fun, but I still have no idea what's going on. It has promise, certainly. But, I can't judge it yet until I see where it's going. On the other hand Leonardo Da Vinci is in this anime, so 10/10.

    Overall, my advice is to try it. Watch the first two episodes, and if you're drawn ...

    Very enjoyable new series
    Nobunaga the Fool is a very refreshing new series. With a very interesting take on space and samurai, this show gives us a entertaining and captivating moments. with only 4 episodes thus far, its a little hard to gauge how it will turn out, but I believe Nobunaga the Fool will only continue to deliver.

    Not a mecha fan but this is so over the top
    I was coming into this show with some hesitation as I generally do not care for mecha shows. However, this is so over the top in terms of the characters and their historical names, the East vs. West, and finally the main character and his "group" of tag-a-longs.

    Some are saying the story is rushed or a bit hollow at times. I think it is perfect. I am actually enjoying this fast paced, silly ...
