Oda Nobuna no Yabou [Light Novel]

Translated in English as ' Oda Nobuna's Ambition', Oda Nobuna no Yabou(O.N.n.Y) is another travel back in time story featuring the Sengoku Period. Much of the generals and daimyos were turned into women in this novel. The protagonist of the story is another 'average' perverted Japanese highschooler mysteriously traveled back in time. Armed with knowledge of the Sengoku Period from Koei's Nobunaga's Ambition, the protagonist attempts to alter the course of history and prevent the materialisation of the Honnoji-Incident, as well as assisting Oda Nobuna's dream to unify Japan and transforming it into a global major power.

So far, I have read up to the third chapter of the fifth volume. It's a mixture of historical fiction and alternate history. While certain dramatic events were altered due to the protagonist's intervention, much of what happened in history remained the same. While it may be uncreative for those who are unfamiliar with what happened during the Sengoku period, it was fairly entertaining for myself.

It's a well written novel and the artist is the same as DxD if you feel the art looks familiar. For people who have access to it (i.e. language proficiency), I would recommend it. One of the major plot point is how the MC can prevent Oba's inevitable death in history (Honnoji Incident).

It's a mix of multiple genres including alternative history, historical fiction, comedy, and romance. Some people might say that it's a harem (there are other girls who like the MC), but I don't really think so.

why does Nobuna downplay Saru's merit?

Maybe it's to keep him anonymous, if he was know throughout the land as a great strategist a lot of Daimyou's would want him and that would make him a target. I think that it's Nobuna jealousy trying to keep him all for herself.

Keep in mind that I'm just speculating, I don't read the novels.

^ So it hasn't come to that part yet, eh. Well, given that I've seen some people dumping the novel illustrations somewhere, I can make that much sense of why it would even begin.

I dont know what exactly happen from the reality MC was in.

He's somehow go back to the past and realize everything completely different. He help Nobuna to accomplish her dream then change the history. But the case if he was the part of history he would be disappear ... We still see him, so the result of everything he do might be finally same as what he know in future ...

Argh, It's a goooood story, just hope there will be big surprises for all the readers.

Frankly, I believe he is in an alternate universe, hence he cannot affect his own universe's timeline yet can affect the new one he is in. One could argue that whatver happens in the story will be the actual history of that universe, hence avoiding the time paradox problem.

Oh I see, a dimensional or alternate universe are fine, so "MC, free to go and do whatever you want to make new world"

Yeah alternate reality is most likely the case.

The impression I got at the end of the episode was that Sagara has accepted that Nobuna is not Nobunaga even though they're going through the same thing- the part that gave it away for me was when he said that though he knows that person's future, he has no idea what her future would be.

In simple terms, he fell in love with her and is now trying to change the past events. Though it is an alternate reality or past. He done good so far, Nobuna killing her little brother is what actually sparks her lost of control. He prevented that, so it is a major change. What is different so far from the anime it doesn't look like a Harem, though the Light Novel is. I think I may ask Teh Ping if this Light Novel is worth putting in Baka-Tsuki for translation. Oh a little side note, the same artist who drew the pictures in Oda Nobuna no Yabou is the same as High School DXD Miyama Zero. One of the best anime artist I've seen, if you seen the illustration of High School DXD you'll know how good this Light Novel illustrations are. If not I can post some pictures here.

That's a good thing isn't it? Harems shouldn't be too 'In-your-face'.

Depends; as long as there's multiple heroines falling for him it's can still be considered a harem.

After all, the protagonist's own feelings doesn't have to be taken into account

The artwork is fantastic, in fact more so than High School DxD in my opinion. The covers are also heaven, with some of them having a special alternative versions. Here's my favorite cover:

From what I understand, he doesn't kill because he isn't used to it (being your average Japanese high schoolboy of a highly undermilitarized Japan). However, he will put his life on the life to save others. So if we compare him to Rock, his reluctance to kill is based on not having the guts for it, and not an issue of principles.
