Soon thereafter we're treated to a much darker and more martial piece as Nobunaga surveys his lands from the balcony.
It's Kou Otani? Wow, I didn't recognise his style. I remember him more for his Haibane Renmei and Ico scores, which I loved. Hyouge Mono's tracks are a bit too zany for my tastes, though I agree they fit the scenes well. I'm a much bigger fan of the jazzy OP and ED, Bowl Man and Kizuna respectively.

Furuta Sasuke is fictional, I believe, but he is apparently based on a real person mizuki_tohru mentioned: Furuta Oribe.
