Why do they keep using Oda Nobunaga in anime that much
>>
>>194930548
because he is the Abraham Lincoln of japan
>>
>>194930548
he's their henry VIII
>>
>>194930548
He was the main unifying force who created the nation of japan from a chaos of warring states
he had the vision and the drive and the brutality required, but he was also a very intelligent man and open to new ideas. He was betrayed by lesser men who went on to reap the spoils of Nobunaga’s superhuman efforts.
then they made a PR campaign demonizing him in order to legitimize their own rule and cover for their own crimes of betrayal.
he also had a big nose and a mustache and looked like a badass while Tokugawa Ieyasu and Toyotomi Hideyoshi just looked like a couple of fat chinks
>>
>>194930548
Why do they keep using
>Iulius Caesa
>Octavian Augustus
>Constantine the Great
>Karl the Great
>Otto I
>Friedrich Barbarossa
>Karl V
>Friedrich the Great
>Bismarck
and so on and so on

He´s literally one of their greatest historic figures, you fucking idiot.

Nobunaga’s great great great great great great great (abridged) great grandson was a famous figure skater in japan a few years ago.
He actually looks kind of like the old paintings of Nobunaga, unfortunately he acts like a total fag and was on tv crying like a little bitch when he won some figure skating tournament.
I think he retired from skating to focus on his true calling of being a massive embarrassment to his bloodline
>>
Nobunari Oda in case anybody cares, don’t look at his Wikipedia portrait pic, look at the action shots of him skating and you can see the family resemblance
>>
>>194930548
Literally a chad responsible for uniting Japan and kickstarting the drive to constantly innovate in all aspects. If it wasn't for him they'd probably end up getting cucked as hard by Europeans as the SEA region.

> Additionally, Nobunaga was very interested in European culture which was still very new to Japan. He collected pieces of Western art as well as arms and armor, and he is considered to be among the first Japanese people in recorded history to wear European clothes.[citation needed] He also became the patron of the Jesuit missionaries in Japan and supported the establishment of the first Christian church in Kyoto in 1576,[19] although he never converted to Christianity.[20]
Nobunaga was chill af unlike Tokugawa Ieyasu who literally went around executing Christians
Nobunaga would be excited about the idea of shitposting with us while Tokugawa Ieyasu would send somebody to cut our heads off

shit man one of his sons was named Peter

He looked much more formal in a flashback image from Mitsuhide. However, you have to remember that this Nobunaga was isekaied while suddendly fleeing for his life from a burning castle.

Before he was transported to the new world, he wore better clothes, had his hair up in a traditional Japanese pony tail, and likely was cleaner shaven. The current Nobunaga looks like a hobo in comparison.

Remember winter of 2014 when we had Nobunagun and Nobunaga the Fool?
Good times.

Not even close. The Ends are still alive and the main battle hasn't even started yet.

Yoshitsune might be dying soon. Taking on Yoichi, Nobunaga, and Hannibal all at the same time. The centaur cavalry might pose a problem to the weary humanoid soldiers though.

I mean Nobunaga was a massive embarrassment to his bloodline, he was literally called the Fool of Owari up until he started whipping everyone’s ass. He was probably of a similar disposition.

Just look up Nobunaga's conflict with Buddhist sects. He in part supported Christianity to undermine and spite the Buddhists.

In was to a Buddhist he was arguing with that he dubbed himself "Demon King of the Sixth Heaven". Basically, if the Buddhists served heaven, then he was the ruler of Hell.
>>
>>194934709
well you can't blame him. the buddhists were crazy af
>>
>>194935000
Trips confirmed.
Between the Catholics and Buddhists its hard to pick who had crazier zealots.
>>
>>194935000
How crazy?
>>
>>194935140
Hirano knows this, which is why the Catholics in Hellsing were so insane and fanatical.

I'm hoping that Jeanne in Drifters will eventually overcome her revenge madness only for it to be revealed that she's just as much if not more insane as a devout Catholic.
>>
>>194935252
Some of Nobunaga's devious tactics from Drifters were pulled from some of the atrocities that the Buddhists commited against Nobunaga in real life.
>>
>>194935252
they had literal warrior monk temples on mountains where the monks would just run down the mountain and kill you
Nobunaga apparently had a lot of trouble with them and got fed up with their constant bullshit
>>
>>194935252
they had a bunch of guys that trained every day in their skill as a way of meditation, so you got monstrously skilled warriors, who would never swear fealty to any lord, but were motivated by power nonetheless.

They were also synonymous with peasant uprisings.
Violent, brutally skilled and out for themselves.
they had to go is all.

there was no Nippon, if not for Nobunaga the Japanese islands would have gotten eaten up by colonialists like a bunch of podunk Filipino fiefdoms

He didn't, he liked Western tech and had an interest in the exotic in general. He was just Machiavellian, he'll use Christians until it doesn't suit him anymore and then toss them aside when he comes across something that benefits his aims more.

Who Nobunagun here?
>>
>>194934709
He burned that mountain where the Buddhists were because they were in his way, not because he was anti-Buddhist in general. The Honganji and those affiliated with them were anti-Oda and basically a military force in themselves.

The demon king thing was literally him trolling Takeda Shingen.

Ieyasu was a fat fuck
inb4 t. Mitsunari
>>
>>194932488
That was Hideyoshi, not Ieyasu. Ieyasu's the one basically famous for doing jackshit the entire time, relatively speaking.
Hideyoshi's a really interesting case because more than anyone else he benefitted under Nobunaga's policy of favoring talent above all else and was generally agreed to be his best general. Initially Hideyoshi continued Nobunaga's style of rule in most aspects, but after he certain point he goes batshit insane and does a total 180 on his outlook and starts doing all the shit he's more known for nowadays.
>>
>>194937635
Why is every Bakumatsu era anime/manga just bottom-of-the-barrel shoujoshit? Not saying it has to be a battle shounen or whatever, it doesn't really suit that either, but it's a legitimately really interesting and distinct chunk of their history
