When you look at the cover Oda Nobuna no Yabou, you would immediately think "oh, its just another cliche harem series", I wouldn't blame you if you did as it does look like one and I myself thought of it as one, but when you actually watch it you realize that there is simply more to it than that, its definitely not a tasteless cliche and although it has many female characters, it doesn't present itself as a stereotypical harem where they are all attracted to the male lead.

I won't bother with the introductions because I know you are smart enough to have read the read more

Unlike the other review, I'm just going to start off with why I graded them ( ).



Story 9/10


Main Male Lead, Sagara Yoshiharu, has been nicknamed by Oda Nobunaga ' Monkey ' or ' Saru '. No, I'm sorry. Main Male Lead, Sagara Yoshiharu, has been nicknamed by Oda Nobuna ' Monkey ' or ' Saru '. This anime is a historical, romantic and comedy with a large change of physical looks from the normal history (Gender swap). Plot twists are quite unpredictable. Main Female Lead, Oda Nobuna, is a blonde. I repeat. A blonde. I was quite surprised considering Oda Nobunaga had black read more

I love history. I love anime. Combining both of them is like winning a million dollars and the girl (or guy) of your dreams. In other words, it's heaven. Now, when I first started this show, I was a bit reluctant. There are two ways to go about making a historical anime, let alone one that has romance in there as well. The first is to make it as historically accurate as possible. The result of this of course is potentially boring your viewers to death. The second way is to make a parody of history, in which case you risk offending your viewers. The read more

As many have already said, at first glance this show appears to be just mostly your standard harem rom-com, however I was quite surprised when it turned out to be more of a reverse-harem, especially since most of the cast consist of females.

Story: (7 / 10)
While the story itself isn’t really anything amazing, it well managed to keep me interested enough to finish watching the series. Throughout the show we basically deal with the different tasks Oda Nobuna has to do, or rather what tasks she has for the main character, Yoshiharu. It is an “historical” anime, but since I don’t know much at all read more

If at any point through the 50+ eps of ZnT you got bored, you might wanna check out Oda Nobuna - the concept's kinda similar, but Oda is much more intense and has no filler-like slowdowns...

...and if Oda Nobuna no Yabou leaves you craving for more, there's this pretty good 4-season show called Zero no Tsukaima that has a lot in common and is really worth watching :)
This one is a girl going to the sengoku period but nth much...
Oda Nobuna no Yabou is still the best!!
Their settings may be different, but the events of both series take place in an alternate world. In that world, they must fight for survival with their tactical minds to put forth strategies. There is fantasy elements present along with action, drama, and comedy.

The main female protagonist from both series is also skilled, independent, and has a talent in fighting. Her relationship with the main male protagonist can be viewed in a variety of ways.
Both Utawarerumono and Oda Nobuna no Yabou place a male protagonist in a strange world based on a historical setting rife with war, diplomacy, and romance.

The lives of the protagonists of either series prior to their arrival in this new world are explored very little if at all. They take an active and often leadership role in their new surroundings. Both stories are focused on their adventures in these new places and their interactions and relationships with the individuals they find there. They also make use of their knowledge of modern science and techniques to improve the lives of those close to them and strive for similar goals involving peace where war is the norm.
Both of these Anime have female versions of the characters from the Sengoku time period.
Both focus on the Sengoku (Warring States) Era and feature a number of historical figures with major changes made to them. Sengoku Basara features ridiculous weapons and personality traits among the various famous generals and other figures, and has a general theme of "turn off your brain and enjoy the over-the-top badassery, instead of questioning things." Oda Nobuna no Yabou features a number of genderswitched historical figures, such as the title character, Oda Nobuna, and also employs the use of a boy from the future accidentally landing in the past and accidentally killing another historical figure so he ends up trying to keep history from getting too screwed up by helping out Nobuna.
