History classes have never interested Saburo. He never saw the point of learning something that happened in the past, let alone a few hundred years ago. But when he falls off a wall, he travels through a wormhole and ends up in 16th century ancient Japan. He meets a very young Oda Nobunaga, one of the most influential figures in Japanese history, who turns out to be identical in appearance as Saburo.

The real Nobunaga, sick of the castle life and wanting to travel, orders Saburo to take his place. Without knowing how to get back to his time, Saburo tries to make sure history isn't rewritten for the infamous Oda Nobunaga.

Manga: Nobunaga no Chef
Both manga are about someone from our era somehow ending up in the Sengoku era, and both are closely related to Nobunaga. In Concerto the protagonist is an ordinary high school boy who must become Nobunaga, in Chef we have a cook who takes his 21st century culinary knowledge to old Edo.

Manga: Kingdom
Similar in showing famous historical figures in there rise to power. Not only do both manga show well known battles in the past but also show the political aspects of war to. Both manga's conduct interesting fictional twists that allow for amazing action scenes but also funny comedic scenes as well.

Manga: Nobunaga no Yabou: Rinne Tenshou
Both manga have Nobunaga, his conquest and time-travel as the main focus. The main difference, however is that a real Nobunaga (who also happened to be a very ruthless and cunning, if needed) traveled back to the past, not a schoolboy. Thus, he changes history, not creates it.

Manga: Again!!
Again! is about a time travel within your own life time to do something over, while Nobunaga Concerto is a comedy about a high school boy going back in time to become Nobunaga's double, these manga are very funny shounens and the humor of them is similar where they act different from how they really are. They can seem like complete fools sometimes and pretty much wise or wise guys at other times. They vary in one being modern and the other historical.
