Oda Cinnamon Nobunaga Key Visual (CrunchyRoll)

In which the great warlords of Japanese history get reincarnated as… cute dogs?


Oh anime. Never change. 😂

Anime has long had a fascination with Oda Nobunaga. See for example this search of CrunchyRoll for “Nobu”:

Of these the only show I’ve watched to completion is Nobunagun, which in Sio delivered a fabulously batshit crazy brilliant rendition of Nobunaga’s reincarnation as part of a serious story.

Oda Cinnamon Nobunaga on the other hand is played purely for laughs. It is effectively a series of comedic sketches featuring Nobunaga, er, Cinnamon and the various other reincarnated warlords.

Whilst I chuckled at several of the sketches, I was also checking the time at several points. Oda Cinnamon Nobunaga is striking me as a “funny once” show: the second episode is unlikely to work as well, and it will be diminishing returns after that.

That impression is reinforced by the trailer identifying the second episode title as Milkman and Strawberry Panties… Love at Honnouji!? which is rather less than inspiring.

Amusing enough for one episode but dropped. YMMV.
