This sounds kinda familiar. I have a feeling that I've seen this somewhere, but I'm not sure where.

I'm always looking forward to anything Sengoku related, though some titles end up disappointing. Gotta find out if this is good or not ^^.

It's like there's a Nobunaga fetish over there...

It sounded really cool initially and tapered off as I read more.

I'll judge it fully once it starts though.

The first sentence of the summary brought up some deja vu. However, girl is better than boy in this case, so I read on.

During a school excursion she was attacked and this triggered the soul of Oda Nobunaga inside her to wake up.

Oh, Japan, you so silly.

Character design is not to my taste at all, everything else might be good if watched though.

i'm not a fan of the Character Design...still, if I have time I might give it a shot.

Character design doesn't appeal me at all, but we'll see how it does.
