Plot Summary: Due to some unlikely events, Saburo is flung back in time to the Sengoku Era. In the past, he meets a young, but sickly Oda Nobunaga, one of Japan’s greatest war lords. Unable to shake Saburo’s uncanny resemblance to himself, Nobunaga asks Saburo to take his place as war lord. Equipped with knowledge from the modern era, will Saburo be able to unite Japan? (from Crunchyroll)

I thought this would be just another Nobunaga story, but I gave it a try anyway. The anime is really growing on me. The artwork isn’t what I’m used to, but beyond that, the story itself reminds me a lot of one of my favorite old movies - “The Prisoner of Zenda”. It really surprised me and now I look forward to seeing more.
