Nobunagun Review — D

nobunagun_01_2

Super warriors inherit powerful genes from their ancestors and fight space monsters.

On the bright side,  watching the ghost of Oda Nobunaga laugh manically while on fire and a little school girl blasts aliens to bits with loads of guns was pretty cool. Tragically, this only happened a couple times.

The rest of the show was fairly disappointing.  Some of the battles were interesting, but there were way too many characters, most of whom I didn’t care about at all. A lot of the humor missed its mark. The romance was kind of silly. Oda Nobunaga x Jack the Ripper? WELL THEN. Kind of disappointing when from the first episode I thought we were going to get lesbians. (Note: Oda Nobunaga x Jack the Ripper is not gay, sadly.)

Not to mention the whole premise is retarded. Gandhi, Newton, Nobunaga and Jack the Ripper’s descendants fighting alien monsters under the command of a mecha bunny? Well then. It sounds like it could be so stupid it’s good. Sadly it’s mostly just stupid.

Also the color scheme was atrocious.

  • Storytelling – D – Nothing too ambitious. Mostly a sequence of battles.
  • Voice – F – A strong voice with the wacky color scheme. A voice I couldn’t stand.
  • Characters – D – Too many, barely scratched the surface with any.
  • Attention Grab – C – Explosion after explosion is one way to keep attention.
  • Production – F – Hate hate hate the color scheme.
  • Overall – D

  1. You didn’t even like the color schemes? As far as I can tell, that’s the only reason anyone watched this in the first place.

    Well, that and the Asao x Shio ship, but that didn’t turn out very well.

  2. Color scheme was dope, you suck. But yeah, the show was pretty lame. Surprised you actually finished it though, I was pretty sure everyone forgot it existed by the halfway point of the season.
