Oda Nobuna no Yabou 06 — Castle in a Day

Nobunaga actually did build a castle overnight, across the river from Imagawa castle without being seen. It’s believed that he only finished the skeleton, not the entire thing, but I think the show looked pretty accurate in that respect.

However, the battle played out differently. The residents of Inabayama Castle didn’t attack, and were actually the defenders. The whole thing with Nobunaga going into a trap never happened, although some of Dousan’s retainers did defect to Nobunaga’s side. Imagawa castle was renamed Gifu castle after the battle.

It’s also a battle that was important in the monkey earning an important role in Nobunaga’s eyes. This is where he gained his name of Hideyoshi, which is why he was so surprised when Nobuna picked someone else to be in charge.

I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who was disappointed when it turned out the loli ninja wasn’t really dead. Not to say I was surprised. That was a pretty cheap move to gain sympathy though. The whole castle is on fire. Oh, wait, but everyone’s fine! Yeah, sure.

And this was quite the understatement. Also, is her armor made of spandex or something? I don’t get how her breasts can jiggle so much. Maybe it’s some more of that ninja “chainmail.” I guess armor doesn’t really matter anyway, since Saru is going around fighting everyone in his school uniform.

  1. “Also, is her armor made of spandex or something?” That’s what I’m telling you mate hahaha imagine the future with an A6M zero with such armor hahahah

    Btw i also did my research on this episode and some of the facts really coincide with actual history, well at least that Goemon (her name makes me remember Joseph Goebells lol) survived I really thought she already crossed the Styx when she was shot, but anyway it’s still possible that the bullet did just bounce off considering they are round shots unlike modern bullets which is sure to perforate her armor.

    1. Hm, did you conclude that she is supposed to correspond to Ishikawa Goemon? Apparently Goemon attempted to assassinate Hideyoshi, and is rumored to have attempted to kill Nobunaga as well. Not much is known about him though, and he doesn’t seem to be associated with fighting on behalf of Nobunaga.

      1. Yeah Ishikawa Goemon was sometimes associated with exaggeration of having ninja skills so there is a big possibility that our loli ninja here corresponds to him. not to mention Goemon is quite popular to ordinary folks like her other half in real history.

        1. Haha, I hadn’t thought about her popularity like that but that’s a good point! I wonder if the creators even thought of that or if it’s just because she’s a cute loli.

  2. “I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who was disappointed when it turned out the loli ninja wasn’t really dead.”

    I was so happy she wasn’t dead! Goemon and Akechi are my favourites. I love Goemon’s cute way of talking! But I recall you didn’t enjoy Koihime Musou where basically everyone is like Goemon minus brains So our taste is different here, I guess…

    1. Koihime Musou where basically everyone is like Goemon minus brains

      Ahahaha this is the perfect description of Koihime Musou! Yes, I am not a fan. 🙂

      Her way of talking is cute though, I’ll admit.
