New Anime Series: Nobunagun

First Episode(s) Review for: Nobunagun

Violent dreams haunt a somewhat forgetful and easy goring girl, she is a bit of a flake but bumbles though life happily enough, that is until aliens arrive at a field trip, and she turns out to have the memories of a great Japanese military commander and the giant cannons to match.


A mix of open and cheerful for the human areas and dark and brooding the the dream sequences, A very nice touch is the use of coloured shadows to show a persons type i.e. normal girls get flowers in their shadows while the heroine gets camouflage colours

Plot Potential:

This depends, it could be as a simple power ranger series or as serious a samurai drama, hard to tell at this point as there is a mix of smiling bouncy bits and people with swords thought their bellies


Alt Rock though out, fairly generic stuff but good beats

Reminds me of:

Time travel between Neon Genesis Evangelion and Samurai Gun with a chunk of the plot of Gate Keepers


I am pleasantly surprised with this Anime it feels like it should be a jolly little jokey super powered team Anime, but it is far darker in execution, a real dark horse of the season, well worth watching.
