Nobunaga Concerto

ISHII Ayumi [Japan]


The diary of Saburo, a high school student who slips back in time to the Warring States period to become a substitute for ODA Nobunaga. The sickly ODA who has lost the confidence to survive a time of civil war, asks his spitting image, the Heisei-born Saburo who has no interest in Japanese history, to take his place. This new interpretation of ODA Nobunaga has attracted much attention, and has been adapted into an animated TV series and live-action drama.
