For me, it was one of the best anime that i ever seen.
There is action, romance, sci-fi. The art is not common and the colour are used very well. The story may seem normal or like another anime but it is not. Using famous character from the past and discovering about them is very interessing.

Please watched it ...

Preliminary (4/13 eps)
Nobunagun seemed like a decent anime to watch but one quickly realizes that this is a Horrible anime series. I was unable to complete it since it was exceptionally bad.

Art is something that is quite subjective. Having said that I have to confess that the art here was exceptionally horrible. The ...
