Written by Kako of the Sekijitsu writing team:
I must confess, I didn’t know a thing about Nobunaga before going into it. In a way, I guess that might be a blessing because I was forced to give it the benefit of doubt, but boy oh boy did it wear on my best intentions. I was fooled at first thinking I might be getting something in the vein of The Twelve Kingdoms. You know, alternate worlds, high fantasy jargon, deep and involved storylines. Then there’s the fact that this is an original work, which is great because there’s no obligation to stick to some predetermined road set forth by a manga counterpart. These are all things that should be setting up Nobunaga to be something pretty special, unfortunately it instead fell pretty flat.
