Nobunaga Oda


Plot Summary: When the Imagawa are defeated, Takechiyo decides that the Matsudaira will form an alliance with the Oda since Nobunaga is the one closest to unifying the country, and he sends the MC to seal the deal. The MC is fond of Nobunaga since he treated her well during her days as a hostage with the Oda Clan and convinces him to agree to the alliance. Nobunaga seems just as fond of the MC, but then an accident causes the MC’s gender to be revealed to him, and the MC begins her struggle to show her loyalty to both Nobunaga and to Takechiyo, who seem determined to bump head

What I think of him: Nobunaga is a man who will go to any ends to achieve his goal of unification, no matter how is causes others to regard him. He is a man who treasures things that amuse him, whether those things are people or foreign objects. He is a skilled dancer, and enjoys doing so since dancing brings him peace

Nickname: Demon Lord

Charm point: He continually proposes to the MC

Quote: “When I am with you, I forget all of the turmoil in the world. You are the only one who can lead my heart to peace.”

Cuddle, kiss, or push down: Sit together and talk

Would have eloped with: Tadakatsu No one

Favorite moments: 

  • Nobunaga’s performance
  • How Nobunaga repeatedly asks the MC to marry him even after being rejected each time
  • The MC resting her head on Nobunaga’s lap
  • The MC deciding that the only way she can retain her loyalty to both Takechiyo and Nobunaga is for her to die with Nobunaga

Worst moments: 

  • Nobunaga essentially holding the MC captive
  • Nobunaga loosing his chill when he sees the MC and Hideyoshi together

Worth the price of admission?: I’m always interested in seeing how otoge interpret Nobunaga since he is usually played as a villain in other media, he earned that Demon Lord reputation after all. Love Legend of Sengoku does a good job of making Nobunaga a desireable partner while also not watering down his character too much. This Nobunaga is completely capable of doing terrible things, and he accepts that he’s probably going to hell, but he wants to achieve the unification of Japan more than anything else. The route itself if mostly about the MC realizing that she’s in love with Nobunaga and then her struggle since it seems like she will either have to choose Nobunaga or Takechiyo; the word “loyalty” features heavily. The focus on the MC is a good take for a Nobunaga route since they typically focus on him typically. All in all, it’s a good route, although not the best in the game, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes otoge set in the Sengoku Jidai
