  • Well worth watching, nothing ground breaking but very enjoyable
    This was a fun twist on loose Japanese history. It has a few harem aspects and a little bit of fanservice but doesn't go crazy with it. Unlike many similar anime the main character isn't a worthless personalityless plot device, he actually pulls his weight nicely. It's a fun watch. A lot of people say that it leaves off on a cliff hangar and isn't complete. In a way they are right, but it's not as ...

  • A "harem"/action with a male lead who's actually not-an-idiot
    Bouncing boobplate aside, this show was spectacular. It's exciting, funny, sweet, and needs a second season.

    The characters are all gender-swapped figures from Japanese history so if you're rusty on the Sengoku period some of the subtlety will be lost. All of the characters are really adorable AND intense, while Saru manages to be the first male lead in a harem-style anime that is actually ...

  • Comedy, Action, Love, interesting time line=Great series
    The series is about an high school boy in Sengoku time period (historical figures are all women), working with Nobuna Oda to unite Japan & find his way back home. If you're an fan of history (alternate), romantic comedy, beautiful animation & action, you come to the right place. The only complain I've with "The Ambition Of Oda Nobuna" series is 12 episodes. I wish it was 14 episodes, but, it ...

  • The Ambition of Oda Nobuna
    This show was pretty good for a harem series. It has some action but if that is what you want to see then this series may take a few episodes for that to occur. Oda Nobuna is based off of Ambition of Oda Nobunaga and if you like samurais and somewhat love stories and things like that this is a show for you.

  • Fun show, though predictable
    Naturally, a show which replaces key historical figures in Japan's history with a bunch of kawai girls isn't going to take itself too seriously. That is to say, there is no earth-shattering plot, and there's some nonsense (e.g. "red shirt" characters dying in droves, but life is happy 60 seconds later; or the disjointed personalities of a murderous warlord and an innocent flustered teenage girl ...

  • If only history class was this good!
    Though history might not be my favorite class, I love studying it on my own. Thus, a series like this captured my interest immediately. Having fun traveling around and trying to change the fate of humanity = epic. Having equally strong male and female characters = exciting. Having great music and animation = enthralling. Having a decent plot when this could have taken a really bad route as a harem ...

  • good setting, plot not bad either
    Very good idea for a anime. Draws you right in.
    The plot was good, had really nailbiting parts.
    Characters were perhaps the weakest part but not awful. I felt that only the main characters had a sophisticated personality, the others seemed like fillers.
    edit: I feel it would have been better without magic.

    was awesome..but too short
    they should have made this a full length series not just 12 episodes, it was so good!, thats the only reason why i am giving it 4 stars...because it was too short or a series.

    the animation was awesome, same with the story line.

  • Step aside Sengoku Period
    The Ambition of Oda Nobuna is about a boy who winds up back during the Sengoku period with the female equivalent of Oda Nobunaga, Oda Nobuna. The whole plot revolves around the two and their general's conquest of Japan.
    I really like this anime's story line as it is a historical fiction and for the most part accurate, however, as you will see, some things change. On top of the good storyline, ...
