Synopsis

The Western Planet and the Eastern Planet.
Once upon a time, the two sides were bound by the "Dragon Pulse" spanning the heavens.

The civilization that once had prospered has now turned to a tale of dreams, as the inextinguishable flames of war tear the realm asunder. The two planets remain engulfed in endless battles.

The return of the super technology known as "sacred treasures" could revolutionize the world order, but no one knows of them but one person—a "heretical girl."

A girl from the Western Planet, Jeanne Kaguya d'Arc, saw heavenly visions of the birth of a "Star Messiah" who will save the world. She embarks on a journey to the Eastern Planet with Leonardo da Vinci, "the one who observes the world." They come across the heretic of the Eastern Planet and "the greatest fool of the day," Oda Nobunaga.

"It was inevitable!" - Oda Nobunaga.

Nobunaga The Fool is a pleasant surprise of this season, a very curious yet enjoyable mix of many genres : Mecha, Sengoku Period, Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Romance, which may raise many brows given the unique sense of history of this anime, but that flamboyant extravagance has many charms, just like the main protagonist, Oda Nobunaga, a foolish and persistant man who aims to conquer heavens and earth as he is said to be the Savior-King by his allies, Jeanne d'Arc and Da Vinci. His resolve and potential steadily draws other characters to him, allies and enemies alike. Gaius Julius Caesar, read more

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 enough to come at us," along with the bamboo fortress that "could never be taken" even though they know damn well the enemy has giant mechs. Despite all the read more

Recommendations

The character designs in these two anime look extremely similar. Both main characters have the same feeling and end up obtaining an amazing power. Both are mecha anime, and both kind of have that east/west alternate reality world-building theme.
History is recreated in the far future combining both western and eastern periods of war with lots of different historical figures from different time periods

Differences: Nobunaga the Fool is more action and less comedy with ecchi than Horizon and also doesn't have strange speaking patterns
