Nobunagun

Was surprised that a search turned up nothing appart it being mentioned in the announcement thread since it's been announced for a while.

So yeah here's a few images that hooked me.

Images
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Liked the charadesign a lot so I figured "might check this out"

Then I read the synopsis on ANN:

Quote:
The "stylish action" manga opens with high school girl Shio Ogura visiting Taiwan on school trip, when she is caught in a surprise attack by monsters called "Evolved Invaders." The military is useless against them, but in the middle of the chaos, the mysterious E-Gene Holder agents from the government organization DOGOO appear.

Thanks to technology, these agents wield weapons infused with the spirits of great historical figures. Gandhi is now a barrier, and Newton is a gravitational maneuver. When her friend is endangered, Shio awakens the ability to wield one such weapon — the great Japanese warlord Oda Nobunaga as a giant machine gun.

This sounds crazy enough to be awesome so I will most definitely be watching it this winter

The studio handling the show will be Bridge,there's no further staff info yet.

- I wasn't a fan of Oda Nobuna or any of the Nobunaga-referenced anime in the past, but this...this I might watch.

Since I 'm a fan of Nobunaga, I'll watch a couple of episodes to decide if it's worth watching.

I like the summary, hope I'll enjoy it!
BTW, is it just me or did the cover girl reminding me too much of Maka from Soul Eater?

The visuals are really solid, my only gripe is that the characters other than the protagonist have the name of historical people, they could've used them on the weapons like they did with the Nobunaga's giant gun that the protagonist is equipped with. As for the premise, this is either going to be really unique or just becoming another generic action show, I feared that the superpowers will be handled generically, which I hope it wouldn't go that way.
Still I'll wait for the first episode to come, but I like the characters and the cast seems promising.

This show is entirely built around a pun. It is so dumb. Count me in for episode 1.

PV




It seems we're in for some yuri subtext. The girl with the hime cut seems to play the Miku role for this series



EDIT:
Spoiler for pics:
All that blushing. She's head over heels for her friend.

I doubt it since there are males in main cast, one voiced by Tatsuhisa Suzuki and other by Akira Ishida.

I don't see how that's a problem.

It's definitely not yuri since
a) balanced cast
b) article on tvtropes would be ready by now, since it's tumblr-ridden site.

I'm not saying it's a yuri series. I'm just saying the MC is gay for her best friend. That's what I see in the PV, and is consistent with what I heard from manga readers.

I still don't see the problem.

Don't know what you mean with this.

Don't know what you mean with this.
There was times that having same sex friend didn't mean they want to fuck each other.
And then tumblr was created and cancer from there spread for entire internet.

Ok. Now to technical reasons: there is yuri no series where cast is balanced.
MC being gay = yuri/yaoi series.
