  • A fun, if mindless, action series
    The main character, Sio, is a complete nerd who loves the military. She receives the power to fight evolutionary invasion objects by calling forth the wisdom and power of her deceased ancestor Nobunaga. Although the rest of the show isn't bad by any means, Sio is great fun and really makes the show worth watching.

    Straight Up Fun, Give it a Try
    There isn't much to say about this show, it's not a masterpiece of an anime, but it is a very fun one. The music, look, and general dialogue of Nobunagun ooze style. The enemies are actually pretty interesting, and a rare case of swarm done right. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I really enjoyed the short action packed ride. I recommend trying the first episode because it comes out ...

    PLEASE give me more!!!
    Really, I need more. I'm so very sad this ended so quickly. However the length, Nobunagun delivered quite a punch. And maaaan that opening song. But let's put the metal soundtrack aside for a moment and revisit my reasons for why I need another season.

    Characters. Characters. Characters. Although some of these guys aren't given much information, they are extremely memorable. The historical half ...

  • Unbelievable action with a perfect music pairing
    Usually when there are action sequences the action itself overshadows the music not saying that is awful, but the music and the action go hand and hand. This show made really made me start listening to the music, more than just the end and beginning songs. Story was great they left somethings unanswered like the saint Saint-Germain thing. The characters have just enough depth to them to keep you ...

  • I was very surprised by this anime.
    It started out at a slow pace (for like 10 minutes) then bam, you get bugs everywhere! Sio was totally a great character and her Military Otakuness would show up for great comedic timing in this show. I was pleasantly surprised by this show, and though it is short, it felt complete. It would be cool to see a 2nd season, but you can tell it does not need one. Also, the opening theme was awesome!

  • Surprisingly worthwhile
    the first min gets you excited, but then you realize it's a different anime entirely, but then you are rewarded. Definitely one of my favorites, and I've watched way to many animes to admit, and only a handful last in my memory. Thank you Nobunagun, faith in new animes restored.

  • Great show with lots of cool references to famous people in history
    It was much better than I anticipated before watching it, but after a couple episodes I noticed it had great potential and they didn't waste it.
    The idea behind it is pretty cool, the art direction is a little different than general anime but I like it, especially on Nobunagun's monologues. And the fights are awesome!
