He refers to people mostly (even Nobuna and Saitou Dousan) by only their given names, without adding an honorific title, which is considered extremely rude in Japanese society. Yoshiharu swears loyalty to Nobuna "barbarian style" (European). She is shown to actually play with Inuchiyo by feeding her, which Yoshiharu thinks means she thinks of Inuchiyo like a dog, although he himself later played similar games with Inuchiyo so it has more to do with her own personality. He is also a gifted merchant and has managed to use the resources at his disposal, namely Goemon, the Kawanami group and his own knowledge of trading from his old games, to smuggle rice and amass a small fortune behind the scenes, as a result he's more wealthy than anyone of his rank should be early on in the series. In volume 13, it was confirmed that Sagara Yoshiharu was in fact, a descendant of Sagara clan in Higo province (Kyūshū island). Novel Illustrations Chapter 1 Become the monkey Saru of Nobuna! Nobuna is based on the historical Sengoku legend. He also appears to possess great charisma. Nobuna recruits Sagara, who she dubs "Monkey," to help her in her quest to rule the world. When they first met on the battlefield Yoshiharu tried to become her subordinate due to the dangerous situation he was in, however she promptly ordered Motoyasu to kill him. She became the leader after the death of her father. Yoshiharu also admits that the two of them are similar, and has developed as much trust in Nobusumi as the later has developed respect towards him, going so far as to rely on his help to deal with powerful warlords and battles. Finally, after seeing his devotion to Nobuna, Hanbei developed feelings for him she could not understand, and would seem to hint that these are feelings of jealousy. However, after Yoshiharu defended her from the rants of the Harima noble's, which bothered her for years, she has begun to open up to him and acknowledge him for his effort. However that changed during their time in Kyoto, where Juubei made it clear that she intended to be superior to him and that Nobuna only needed her in order to succeed. Saitou Dousan has enough faith in Nobuna to continue on his dream of conquering the country that he adopted her as his stepdaughter and also sent his biological daughter to her as a form of alliance. Juubei however was only happy to get rid of him and become close to Nobuna in his stead, which infuriated Nobuna and put a standing strain on their initially decent relationship. This is perhaps his most noble and impressive trait, as it has allowed him and his allies to escape from situations which would easily break other men down. She not only wants to conquer and unite Japan, but she is even showing interest in the rest of the world, and starts to respect Sagara more when he demonstrates his knowledge of Europe. They are aware of their difference in status, regardless, Yoshiharu has more than once considered giving up his dream of a harem solely to be with her, once he actually did in fact, and she has on one occasion even thought about quitting her own dream, faking her death, and becoming just "a nameless wife of Yoshiharu" as Azai Nagamasa did to be with her brother Nobukatsu. It can be implied that Yoshiharu even somewhat admires her intelligence. Goemon is Yoshiharu's first subordinate, joining him even before he became a Daimyou by contracting herself with him as a Shinobi. She also wears green-blue colure… After Oda Nobunaga was assassinated by Akechi Mitsuhide, Katsuie and Hideyoshi supported two different Nobunaga's sons, and resulted in Katsuie's defeat and seppuku.

Essentially, when he hears Bontenmaru loudly declare she will use what he taught her to usurp the throne, conquer Oshu, unite with the Nanban people and sink all of japan as the beast of revelations, his only response possible was to ponder the consequences of what he had just unleashed upon the world. When they meet again she goes so far as to offer him the finest of her female generals of Kai, or even herself, and then all of them as well as herself, in order to get him to join her side. The brother-sister like relationship between Yoshiharu and Date Murasame should also be noted: Date Masamune in real-life complied to Hideyoshi's leadership after some initial refusal; his incarnation in-universe is a young girl who looked up to Yoshiharu as a big brother and seemed to obey Yoshiharu's words to a degree. She has been friends with Inuchiyo since they were young, valuing her somewhat like a sister. Finally, it was only after watching him predict Saitou Dōsan's thoughts that she believed he might be from the future as he claimed and began to truly warm up to him. At first being something of a Tsundere, she eventually acknowledges her feelings for Yoshiharu and accepts his own, this event is marked by him saving her from Asakura Yoshikage and later unfortunately by the illness-induced death of Saitō Dōsan. However Yoshiharu noted that Nobukatsu is only at a "cute" level compared to Nobuna, and doesn't seem to think badly of him despite him and his retainers constantly hindering and taunting him during his job. She also appears to playfully go along with Yoshiharu's games and also gets very dejected due to his preference of more boxum women. Synopsis: The Ambition of Oda Nobuna is a gender swapped r This event, and the successful independence of Mikawa, has left some impression on Hanzo, as he seems to have grown to respect Yoshiharu somewhat. May 26, 2016 - The Ambition of Oda Nobuna Praying For A Season 2 ️. However, his plans come under threat by the Oda Faction led by Nobuna Oda whom he hates as he views her as lowly country noble. This event also secured the affection of Magoichi Saika as well, who now constantly seeks to make him her husband. For a feudal lord in Japan, she usually seems rather easygoing. She was willing to strike one of Nobukatsu's retainers in order to make the delivery and save Yoshiharu's head, and also fought against Hanzo in order to protect Yoshiharu, on both occasions taking high risks for his sake. More specifically, Nobunaga laid the foundation for the country to be unified, he took over half of the country and would've succeeded had he not perished when he did, Hideyoshi, who succeeded him, only managed to finish the job his late lord started, and Tokugawa Ieyasu would later take over everything after Hideyoshi's death and establish a whole new shogunate, essentially finishing what both started. Initially Juubei maintained an air of admiration and a strong senpai/kouhai relationship towards Yoshiharu, after meeting him she even called him famous for his "build a castle in a day" strategy and immediately blushed when meeting him. Much later, when she is dying due to her weak condition, her one will is that Yoshiharu not be burdened with the knowledge of it, she tried to entrust her will to Kanbei, who was a comparable strategist to herself. Yoshiharu appears to be smitten with her beauty, as when he was speaking of the No.1 Bishoujo in Japan he meant her, and his request to have said beauty was also no less clear. Mitsuhide is immensely sharp at this, realising their feelings quickly after they became and item and interfering with them whenever they're alone. He even manages to make Hanbei Takenaka comfortable by showing her kindness, and tending to her when she becomes weakened by using too many spells. Her hair is blonde, and quite long, however she usually has it tied up, in a messy fashion with a red ribbon.She has what many might consider to be a flamboyant fashion sense. Daimyo (Volume 8). As a leader he is charismatic and intuitive, perhaps because of his low strategic skill he is also surprisingly creating and capable of solving problems as difficult as the Stone Sentinel Maze Hanbei set up. Takeda first heard of "the man who defies fate" from her retainer, and discovered that Oda's monkey claimed to be someone from the future. Initially she pointed out that the money was Nobuna's, but after Yoshiharu promised to buy her a silk garment she gave up arguing and made him stick to that promise even when she was forced to leave the Oda clan temporarily. He is a talented negotiator, having managed to convince Saitou Dousan to surrender Mino using his knowledge of the future, it's worth saying that even with said knowledge he still had to guess Dousan's own mindset from a passing comment that the man was historically said to have made. During certain times, Yoshiharu apparently tends to use modern references that no one understands, indicating there are certain lapses where he forgets he is 400 years in the past and he casually talks instinctively. This has shown itself repeatedly, such as convincing Dousan again, this time not to die meaninglessly on a battlefield against his son, convincing Hanzo to let him and Inuchiyo escape, convincing Hanbei to join his side, convincing Motoyasu, who has a famous temper when she's been pushed around one too many times, to calm down, and convinced Takeda Shingen to end her invasion, later ally herself, briefly, with Nobuna, and even convinced Date Masamune to return home from invading Kai. Should Yoshiharu die or betray her trust (usually not on purpose), she will become cold, cruel, vengeful and hostile, enough to literally burn a temple, or several, to the ground with little provocation. Later on however, with Hanbei now loyal to Yoshiharu, Zenki has followed his master and joined his side. Later, he even praises Yoshiharu's skills as a commander during the Retreat at Kanegasaki, as Yoshiharu's strategy grouped the enemy together and allowed Hanzo's ninja corps to blow them away with their own bombs. Aug 22, 2015 - Explore Time's board "The Ambition of Oda Nobuna" on Pinterest. She seems to be particularly fascinated with European customs, and she has Sagara swear his loyalty to her in a European knight style, and says it's "cooler" and "more elegant" (as translated in English). At the nearest opportunity, Yoshiharu took it upon himself to punch Ukita once in Zenki's name, and his grateful for his sacrifice. She comes to have a dream as well, which is to make Yoshiharu shine just as he would have Nobuna do, and she decides to serve him and nobody else. Her zodiac sign Aries. His confrontation with his (supposed to be) ancestor (Sagara Yoshihi) would be able to make him "disappear". He once even expressly told Kanbei to send him back to his time if he does indeed end up becoming an obstacle. It was hard for Christianity and Shinto-Buddism (the major religion of Japan at that time) to co-exist at that time due to their differences in belief and philosophy about the world (for example, Christianity did not honor their ancestors, unlike Shinto-Buddism), and as number of Christians grew, Hideyoshi saw them as a threat to public order and ordered the banning of Christianity, even forced some of his own men who followed Christianity, namely Kuroda Kanbei, to commit seppuku. Yoshiharu fears that the growing conflict between them over his affection will lead to the incident at hannon-ji, in other words, he's scared he might have actually caused the thing he most wanted to prevent. Whenever she has to go through something particularly heartbreaking, such as executing her brother or letting someone she cares about die due to circumstances, she will close her heart. He then backs up and a Yoshitatsu stops holding Nobuna back from reaching Konoe after she tells him about uniting Japan. This extends later to their flirting with Yoshiharu, where he considers Kanbei to be still a child and Kanbei notices and he doesn't think that way of Hanbei any longer. After the death of her strategist Shingen began to desire to recruit Yoshiharu into her ranks, as "the man who defies fate" would be a worthy successor to him. After hearing that Nobuna might be dead it was Yoshiharu himself who snapped her out of it and ultimately helped her protect Kyoto from Mutsunaga Danjo. Called a "fool" by her enemies, Nobuna is actually a very bright and talented young woman, with much knowledge of the world. Yoshiharu seems to take advice from Dousan as an older and wiser individual, usually it's either Dousan or Zenki who manages to knock sense into Yoshiharu when he's losing his resolve. Due to this, Nobuna tends to say that Yoshiharu speaks in a "monkey language" that cannot be understood which furthers her imagination of Yoshiharu being some half monkey and half human. She ultimately lost her temper and threw her father's ashes on the buddha statue rather than following tradition, which furthered their opinions. Despite how Takeda had revealed her identity, much to her shock, Yoshiharu had not shown the slightest sign of fear before her. On top of that, he's also occasionally quite foul-mouthed, most notably towards Azai Nagamasa, whom Yoshiharu insults nearly every chance he gets. When Saitou Dousan later died in the novels Nobuna was left with only one crutch left, Yoshiharu, who Dōsan himself entrusted with taking care of her after he passed. Nobuna and Katsuie leads most of the Oda army to Kisogawa. He is willing to lie to her to protect her, as he knew in his future's history that she would likely die fighting against the Mori clan and chose to keep the grim possibilities to himself, because she would actually go and do it: Shikanosuke tends to pray for suffering rather than victory, again, he suspects she's a masochist. Originally happy for Nobuna's little brother, Yoshiharu's jealousy and pure rage towards Nobusumi spiked again when Nobusumi casually mentioned that he'd gotten Oichi pregnant. Yoshiharu has recently started refering to Hanbei by her name, which Zenki seems to think means that he has taken to seeing her as a woman instead of a mere child. She has what many might consider to be a flamboyant fashion sense. After defeating Imagawa, the then strongest enemy in Japan, Nobuna went to her mother in full armour looking for praise of any kind, but was sent away when her mother saw her dressed in such "foolish attire" for a princess. When he later died, she made a scene at his funeral because it was nothing more than an event for the living to help cope with the death, and none of her people were even thinking of her father since they were so busy scheming against her. He would've succeeded in bringing the lords of Harima to Nobuna's side, if not for the unfotunate pressence of Sunekosuri. https://odanobunanoyabou.fandom.com/wiki/Oda_Nobuna?oldid=7094, Long length and tied up at the end with a red ribbon. Oddly, this becomes a bigger problem the deeper she seems to take her relationship with Yoshiharu, as she refused to be deceived by Jūbei accusing Yoshiharu of attacking her when he told her his side of it, but later completely disregards his words when Jūbei implies they slept together(referring to the time she warmed his dying body with her own). She is probably the only woman Nobuna doesn't think will try to steal Yoshiharu from her(she might very well be right too), and Nagahide displays no personal interest towards him, rather she goes to lengths to attempt to bring Yoshiharu and Nobuna together, which usually doesn't work. Finally, she is extremely jealous, whenever he even remotely approaches other girls, so much so that it's very possible that she might accidentally kill him on a few of these occasions. When a job needs to be done Goemon is usually the first person aside from the strategist, Hanbei, who Yoshiharu will turn to and she is more than willing to see it through. Nobuna is noted to have grown up despised and misunderstood by most of her retainers and even her own mother, only an unnamed missionary, her father, Saitō Dōsan and Yoshiharu, have ever truly been able to understand the scope of her vision. While she was willing to help him raise funds to buy rice for the Oda clan Inuchiyo was surprised to see Yoshiharu massively raise the amount of money they possessed and go mad due to it. 0.

Even the Tiger of Kai has become smitten with him after he saved her life and has chosen him as her new strategist, she even offered him the chance to marry any of her four Generals of Kai, and later all of them and herself, just to persuade him. After this, she managed to regain her calm mindset and attacked Takeda again, this time yielding much better results. 0. She wears a tiger skin wrapped around her waist, over a black hakama with yellow trim at the bottom, and white tabi with zōri. He is trusted by the Viper in return, though Dousan is his usual stubborn self in showing it. After hearing this and realizing that ultimately Nobuna was doomed because of it, not Yoshiharu, she begins to realize the struggle he has endured. This same dream concluded with Yoshiharu running off with Mitsuhide as well, which, to be fair, is not totally impossible(but very unlikely), for the womanizer he's become. She serves as the main female protagonist throughout the series. The two eventually developed mutual love for each other, which came full circle during Takeda Shingen 'sand the Azai-Asakura Alliance's simultaneous invasions wherein Nobuna, in her camp, was assaulted by Yoshikage Asakura, Yoshiharu not only rescued her by beating the man to a pulp, but loudly declared her his woman during the exchange. Similarly, she is also aware of Jūbei's feelings towards Yoshiharu, which has led to a rivalry between them, on top of some occasional teaming up to punish his lecherous side.

However Juubei won this challenge unfairly due to Tsuda Sougyu's interference and proceeded to brag about it. Later on, with Hanbei dying, Kanbei captured, Nobuna incapacitated and Shikanosuke rushing off to her death, it was Zenki who, while also having caused the last one in order to prove his point, broke Yoshiharu out of his stupor and told him exactly what he would need to do to save them all: go and do it, and let nothing get in his way no matter how difficult it is to transcend.
