Hanabee Entertainment has just announced that they have acquired the license to distribute The Ambition of Oda Nobuna. The DVD and Blu-ray sets will be released on February 4, 2015. Both editions have a suggested retail price of $59.99 AUD, come with two discs, feature all 12 twelve episodes with options for both Japanese with English subtitles and English audio and feature the textless opening and ending animation as on-disc extras. Hanabee’s describes the series as follows:
Yoshiharu Sagara is about to get a blast from the past.
Stranded in what appears to be the Sengoku period, Yoshiharu’s understanding of Japanese history is about to be turned on its head. Not only is Oda Nobunga not male, one of the key figures in history has just been accidentally killed defending him.
Tasked with making history right, Yoshiharu comes under the command of the very female Oda Nobuna, leader of the Owari province. Can Yoshiharu aid this ambitious leader into achieving her goal or has he forever altered the course of history?
Fans who enjoyed other series involving time travel to the Sengoku period and fans who enjoy gender-flipped characters will likely find something to enjoy in this series. Pre-orders can be made here.
