Nobunaga the Fool Episode 2

Eva

My name is Eva, I've been watching Anime since 2003, and I became a fan later in 2005. I am a passionate writer, so it's a wonderful experience and incredibly thrilling to blog reviews/critics and just express myself about the series.

    If you don’t know Japanese history, Mori Ranmaru was Oda Nobunaga’s valet and lover (the love of his life to be exact). They died together in 1582 in the temple of Honnō-ji. After being cornered and betrayed by Mitsuhide, Nobunaga committed suicide in company of Ranmaru who set fire to the temple they were in on his request so Mitsuhide wouldn’t claim their heads. After this, he also committed suicide to follow Oda in death.

    The historical Ranmaru and Joan of the show are identical if you cut her hair: same voice too.

      OH GOD, the history feels!!!!!! I don’t know anything about Japanese history so that’s why I avoid bringing it up. No point discussing it when I don’t have a clue what I’m talking about. XD Thanks for the history tidbit!

      • Crisp says:

        No problem. It’s a tradition of Japanese pop culture that Ranmaru smells to orchids or is associated with them for his name too. The common theory right now is that the historical Joan reincarnated in Ranmaru (he was born long after she died) and now this new girl is his reincarnation. That’s why her figure and his are juxtaposed. Jeanne Kaguya is playing two roles: as Joan of Arc and Ranmaru Mori.

    Definitely better than last week’s episode; I really enjoyed myself. The characters were fleshed out much better, and Jeanne was more interesting.

    ALSO AGREED ON THE ED FRONT. STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION DELIVERS ANOTHER KICKASS ED. Dubstep in my Nobunaga????
