Oda Nobuna no Yabou: the Better Adaptation

Currently finished: Episode 6

Honestly, after a string of bad sengoku transformed animes such as Sengoku Collection, Samurai Girls, I almost scratched Oda Nobuna no Yabou off my list before I watched the first episode. Fortunately, I decided to gave it a try, and I have to say I'm glad I did.

While it's nowhere near the caliber of Sengoku Basara (I don't believe any sengoku adaptation could top Basara), it is far better than any other sengoku based animes I've seen lately. While it has its fair share of silliness, its plot remains mostly on the serious side and it's rather well built. While I can't predict what it would eventually become, I'd say at least it's a worth a while anime up to this point. So you're you're dismissing it on the basis of "female transformation of Sengoku story is bad", then I'd recommend you give it a try. You may end up liking it.
