Earlier today, anime publisher Sentai Filmworks confirmed that it has acquired the science-fiction/fantasy anime series, “Nobunaga the Fool”, for release in North America.

The “Nobunaga the Fool” anime series is produced by the anime studio Satelight (Bodacious Space Pirates) and is directed by Eiichi Sato (Slayers Next). It features series composition by Shoji Kawamori (Aquarion) and original character designs from Yone Kazuki (Hakuoki). The anime began airing in Japan earlier this month.

Blending historical (and fictional) figures with advanced technology, including giant robots, “Nobunaga the Fool” follows the journey of Nobunaga Oda. Nobunaga is sought out by Jeanne d’Arc, traveling alongside Leonardo da Vinci, who after having a vision believes Nobunaga to be a champion that could save the future of the planets connected by the Dragon Stream. It is uncertain however, if Nobunaga will prove to be the hero they are hoping for, or if he will bring about ruin instead.

“Nobunaga the Fool” will be available through select digital outlets soon and Sentai Filmworks also has plans for a home video release. Exact details about the home release have not been given at this time.
