Yeah it does. Maybe it's not Nobunaga. I'm not to familiar with his story so I wouldn't know for sure. The art does look amazing though

So while it will look historical, it wont be and it's gonna take a lot of liberties.

This line and the picture make me think Nobonuga is gonna be a woman, maybe pretending to be a man.

Interesting, haw boldly are they going to adapt his life ? lol

Oda and Mori Ranmaru's lord-vassal relationship was thought to have followed the nanshoku tradition - an intimate relationship - and was widely admired in Japan for its strength. In nanshoku literature of the Edo period, it was widely understood that Oda and Mori had a sexual relationship that was commonly found in those times.

I have one of the most confusing boners ever.

On a serious note, looks interesting to me. Let's see what this would turn out.

He looks like a touken ranbu character to me. Historical bishounen tend to look pretty feminine lately. The whole "bold new take" and "gorgeous butterfly" do make it seem like they might be going for a gender flip though. (Not that I would personally consider that to be bold)

I mean, the staff on this is pretty solid and Deen can be good when they try. Gonna wait for a PV to make up my mind about that one.

I even doubt you watch the said adaptations. You just able to criticize and insult them all the time. It does look like the female-oriented type of anime you immensely hate. It can't be serious.

Woooah, that's the prettiest looking Nobunaga i have seen so far!
Definitely going in my PTW, just hope that it's not an shounen-ai/yaoi.

Also, i'm pretty sure Nobunaga is still a guy, when they genderbend historical figures into females, they have a specific target audience in mind and don't look like this, rather they would look much more moe and "cute-ish" to appeal to the common male otaku.

He's just a long haired Bishounen, like these:

I understand but you always make it sound otome and reverse harem anime shouldn't exist. Many anime viewers look forward to otome level adaptations like these especially females.

@daggerswithroses @Dauphine
This happens when people have eyes and brains only for female characters. I like them bishies feminine and more beautiful with long hair. I see some anime posters on auction sites are up already 1&2 I'm so hyped now. The characters looking so gorgeous. I won't even mind if it's bromance.
