Let’s send her off!
Taking care of the soul within Hoshigaoka is going to take longer than she would like. However, in the meantime there’s another soul that can be appeased. Onabe’s regret in life can easily be taken care of, though it demands Nobunaga be on the receiving end. He’ll have no choice in this one, too. Hoshigaoka wants some pay back for all he’s done to her. As such, Ranmaru’s sword stands ready to be illustrated. Fortunately, the pregame was more than enough for Onabe. After capturing Ranmaru as the dominant player, Onabe moved on without any regrets. Mayu may be free, but this still wasn’t enough for Hoshigaoka. Her aggressive nature kicked into overdrive, although someone on the sidelines has had enough. Kichou has been silent for far too long about everything. She’s put Hoshigaoka in her place, and let out her feelings at the same time. She doesn’t want to return home, Kichou wishes to stay in the present time with the man she’s fallen for. This time she’ll have children together with Nobunaga and watch them grow.
That about does it for the story contained within season 1, well for the most part. They managed to sneak in another summon in the last 15 seconds. Nothing is coming out of that unless there’s a miracle season 2. Don’t hold your breath for that, though. Anyways, let’s finally talk about the show itself. Going into this, I fully understood the story we would be getting. It’s your typical harem, though with a slight twist. Harems aren’t normally plot heavy, but they do one thing right. A stellar lineup of beauties for the eyes to see is what one would typically expect. Unfortunately, I can’t really say that for this show. Seven’s art detracted from the main allure. Some of these girls maybe had a single great frame, and the rest was all questionable. It hurts to say it, but Seven did this one a disservice.
Between the censorship, poor art, and a ending that leaves us in the middle, I’m going to have to give this a 4/10. The story may be intact, but there’s far too many things that take away from it. The art can even get uncomfortable to watch at times. Additionally, I highly doubt the blu-rays can save this piece. They can remove as much censorship as they want, yet it still won’t look pretty. Anyhow, Nobunaga’s love life shall continue in the source material. Enjoy his final animated showing!
That’s more than likely it for Nobunaga-sensei. Stick around for new titles this upcoming summer!
