Haiiii~ (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ Let me start off by saying this anime is probably one of the most underrated of the Summer 2014 season. Let's start! STORY Imagine if you enjoyed your everyday life and then you suddenly wake up in a completely different world :o  Well that happened to this teenager. Luckily he meets the ruler of the land who for some reason, looks exactly like him! What could happen? hmmm I won't spoil as much, so I'll just say that the story is really interesting! It's based on real history of Japan mixed with a guy from distant future (present day). I'm really glad there's no gore/battles/sex/nudity in this title, because honestly, it would ruin everything. So yeah, the show is kind of for everyone who's willing to understand what they are talking about. A large portion of the show is based around war, but it's very balanced (unlike Lord Marskman and Vanadis). There is a lot of war, but it doesn't ruin the show. Also if you have absolute NO idea about Japanese history (like myself) that is perfectly fine because I'm sure you will find this title interesting, and learn something so win-win. It only has 10 episode so it does feel a little bit rushed. It's still pretty much enjoyable and entertaining ^^ 8/10 ANIMATION Animation is really unusual. Some of anime fans might not like it. It's a mixure of 2D and 3D art. I personally love it. The art is so beautiful, and the animation of characters seems really realistic. So I really like the style because I've never seen something like this in anime. Now even though I think animation is really good, I'll have to say that there are some awkward scenes in which I just thought something was... off. I noticed a few times their movement just doesn't seem right or the whole scene just doesn't look right. But yeah, pretty much unique in a good way. 8/10 SOUND Nothing bad about sound, I love their accents. Voice acting is good, I only caught few times where it's a bit out of sync but nothing major. Music is sort of non existant, but I wouldn't expect a rock theme playing in the background while they are drinking tea in a fancy palace so... Yeah, I have nothing against the sound in this title. It's not perfect, but solid. 8/10 CHARACTERS Most of the characters (except the main character) are based on real people (that existed around 500 years ago...) and most of them are pretty likeable. The main character is so funny and just the way he's acting around all of these super formal noble people is hilarious.  So yeah, just the whole setting is hilarious. Love all of the characters and how they developed them. Love that the main character is not the only ''person in a strange world''. But I won't say more about this :P OVERALL This anime is great. It's funny, it's interesting, it's useful for all us who are uneducated. So if you want to watch something that focuses on story rather than action, with lots of humor, this anime is great for you! Thanks for reading this review! ^^

Saborou, a modern day high school student, is flung back into the past ... smack dab in the middle of the Sengoku Era where he has a run in with a sickly Oda Nobunaga who asks for him to trade places with him due to their uncanny resemblance to one another. Despite not being well versed in history Saborou is armed with his history textbook and is determined to use it so as to not mess up history. With all his knowledge of the future, will Saborou be able to unite all Japan as Oda Nobunaga? The plot to me was what kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved how they made it seem as if this was exactly the way things were meant to happen and how Saborou was meant to become the Oda Nobunaga his history textbook spoke of. The animation was ... unique, I suppose. I didn't much care for it, personally, but felt that it really didn't take away from my enjoyment. It didn't come off as particularly fluid and was rather stilted and awkward at times but the backrounds were lovely and were really the saving grace of the animation. The soundtrack, on the other hand, fit the setting remarkably well!   The characters were one of the highlights, for me. You had the modern thinking / slightly airheaded Saborou whose luck often made him seem like a tactical genius (and who, quite frankly, was a little too relaxed at times and just went with the flow ... he came off as a bit nutty but I came to adore that part of him!), the soft-spoken and sweet Kichou, the serious yet extraordinarily loyal Tsuneaki who, although originally against the changes in his lord, eventually becomes one of his most loyal supporters, Nobunaga's airheaded sister Oichi whose personality was so like Saborou that you would think that in reality Saborou was really her biological brother, the real Nobunaga who became impressed by Saborou and became one of his staunchest supporters and went to work for him under an alias, though.... >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>************SPOILER ALERT***********<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< *************************************************************************** *************************************************************************** *************************************************************************** though by choosing Matsuhide Akechi as his new name, he ironically became the future murderer of Oda Nobunaga. Since Nobunaga is who he is in reality I found it even more ironic and oddly fitting. When Saborou saw Honnoji and blurted out that it was where Oda Nobunaga dies but then blanked on who killed him ... and then 'Akechi' speaks up and says he'll see to it that nobody kills him ... I found that oddly hilarious as he, himself, was the future murderer ... (my sense of humor is weird ... I'm aware -_-" ) ******************************************************************* ******************************************************************* ******************************************************************* >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>***************END SPOILER*************<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Overall, I originally didn't hold much expectation for Nobunaga Concerto ... but by the end I was slightly addicted ... and very sad to have to say goodbye to it. I hope they do another season someday!
