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

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!!
