What They Say:
The year is 1555, the middle of the Warring States period, and one young man holds on to a very big dream. That young man, known as an empty-headed fool, is none other than Oda Nobunaga. Enchanted by his dream, a certain young girl who admires Nobunaga swears that she will become his ninja one day. Nobunaga has one goal: to unify Japan by military might! Decorated by a colorful cast of characters, including the airheaded Kichou, the errand boy Hideyoshi, the tsundere Nene, the straight man Mitsuhide, and the half-dead Hanbei, this heavy-hitting wartime gag anime is about to begin!!

With Matsunaga making his play the last time around, that’s providing for some challenges with Chidori having returned with him seemingly shifting sides. Matsunaga is definitely coming across in some fun ways, and Chidori’s adoration of the man to some degree and his castle is comical, but Nobunaga is pretty aware of what’s going on. At the same time, he is being flattered pretty well and it’s hard to not fall prey to it to some degree as Matsunaga is pretty good at it. It’s fun to see the way the various attendants work in coping with this, or falling sway themselves, and it just further cements what kind of chaos Matsunaga brings with his arrival.
From his introduction in the previous episode we knew that Matsunaga was definitely going to be someone that will shake things up. And boy does he when he gets to spend time with Nobunaga and the rest. There are a lot of quick hit and very fun small gags throughout here but it’s his moment at the end asking Chidori if she’s laid with a man yet that takes the cake with her response to it, and others, that could lead to some hilarity if they’re going to explore it any further. The show continues to be far too much fun and one of the best of the short form shows in handling the balance of it all.
