– 胡蝶綺 ~若き信長~
Kochoki: Wakaki Nobunaga (胡蝶綺 〜若き信長〜) is an original anime television series produced by Studio Deen.
Yet another Nobunaga reimagined anime. Seems we get at least one of these every season with their spin on Nobunaga mythos. Thankfully, this one isn’t overly too outrageous like making him a girl or some space alien. The semi-grounded series is more focus on romanticizing Nobunaga’s young adulthood period.
The art style is simplistic and adequate, but quite ordinary. There is some weird animation, like how a horse galloping just seems off. The audio is satisfactory with neither the opening or ending them remarkable.
The show pacing is rather bumpy, but leaning more on the slow side. The series seems to have an identity crisis as some parts even try to hint it’s a yaoi series (it’s not). It doesn’t know what to concentrate on so it tries everything. As the saying goes, jack of all trades and master of none.
I struggled to complete each episode, hoping it will improve with the next. It like being in a bad relationship where your partner keeps promising they’ll change. The series is too shallow to take as a historical drama and too sluggish and solemn to be any fun.
I can’t say I would recommend this show unless you must watch every Nobunaga anime. Kochoki: Wakaki Nobunaga contains some violence and is intended for young teens.
