Following the anime adaptation of Ayumi Ishii’s best-selling manga “Nobunaga Concerto” which started in July, now comes the live-action drama version featuring a star-studded cast! The story centers around Saburo, an ordinary modern-day high school boy who excels in sports but never had any interest in his studies. One day he suddenly travels back in time to the Sengoku period of 1549, or the Warring States Era in Japan. There Saburo encounters young and sickly Nobunaga Oda who happens to look and sound just like Saburo. Both are shocked by their uncanny resemblance, but Saburo is more even more shocked as the young Nobunaga asks Saburo to switch places with him for time and help people in Japan be united. Will Saburo succeed in his attempt to unify the country of Japan in spite of the “generation gap” across space and time? Gear up for the battle of the warlords! This out-of-this-world imaginative story is sure to keep you hooked throughout the entire course of the series.
