Dynamite daimyo anime The Ambition of Nobuna Oda has finished to general approval – although the conspicuously open-ended ending has prompted much hopeful speculation that a continuation is planned, though so far all that is confirmed is a summary episode.

The Ambition of Nobuna Oda is continuing to live up to its reputation as being the best looking of the season with the latest episodes full of all manner of svelte sengoku damsels, with ever increasing amounts of bust on display and production quality at uncommonly high levels for such a title.

Bishoujo jidai anime Oda Nobuna no Yabou (“The Ambition of Nobuna Oda” – not to be confused with historical warlord Nobunaga Oda) may prove the surprise hit of the season – largely thanks to its superb art and immaculate production values, and in spite of its distressingly generic male protagonist and overused timeslip plot trope…

30 Unforgettably Bizarre Japanese Helmets



The bizarre taste in helmets of Japanese samurai, generals and warlords would put any modern cosplayer to shame, and sengoku jidai buffs have been busily collecting up some of the most egregiously eccentric examples.

Samurai Maid Café


The latest in the interminable succession of novelty maid cafés to open in Akihabara is “Mononopu,” a café and bar whose theme is based on the sengoku jidai period, and whose “sengoku meido” waitresses wear a incongruous mix of maid outfits, kimono, and armour and swords.

Sengoku Jidai Eroge Comparsion


The convoluted politics, distinctive personalities and bloody warfare of Japan’s Sengoku Jidai period, the centuries long period of civil war only ending in the 1600s, has long been a staple of Japanese fiction.

Naturally, this includes games, which have seen a variety of depictions of the top personalities of the age emerge, a generous selection of which you can see compared above.

Eroge Failure – Sengoku Hime


A just released eroge, 戦極姫 / Sengoku Hime, is attracting much attention, almost all of it scathing, for the incredibly dire quality of its art and production values, far lower even than most doujin games.

Many are wondering just what the developers are thinking marketing this at nearly ¥10,000 alongside premium titles.

You may like to take a closer look at the risible artwork, visible below:

Nobunaga no Yabou – Kakushin Review

Nobunaga’s Ambition - Kakushin

信長の野望・革新/Nobunaga no Yabou – Kakushin (Nobunaga’s Ambition – Kakushin/Reform) is the latest in the series of Sengoku Jidai grand strategy games which made Koei, and since it was relatively recently updated with the パワーアップキット/Power-up Kit, I will provide a review. Please note that this is the sequel to the recently released (in English) Nobunaga’s Ambition: Rise to Power, an otherwise quite different game. The Power-up Kit (PK) provides some fairly significant changes, so I will restrict this review to the game with the PK.
