Later, as Mitsuhide develops feelings towards Yoshiharu and they become increasingly more obvious, their situation ends up mixing itself around, now, rather than Juubei fighting Yoshiharu to stand at Nobuna's side, she is equally obsessed with becoming Yoshiharu's bride and is now competing with Nobuna herself to that effect. He has brown eyes, and short-medium length brown hair that is somewhat wavy at the top, but falls down straight at the sides. 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. She may develop and harbour feelings towards him over time, which Nagamasa points out and Katsuie herself can't 100% deny, however her feelings of admiration towards Nobuna are ultimately strong as well and she hates how close the two of them are while she herself wants to be close to Nobuna. Yoshiharu shows a lot of trust in Kanbei unconditionally, even being willing to tell her, Hanbei and Goemon, about the Incident at Honnou-ji. Yoshiharu might be the only person who could actually talk the stubborn Dousan down and reason with him, not once but twice in fact. She and Yoshiharu appear to develop mutual respect as a result of this duel, with him calling her honorable for always fighting him on equal terms and her recognizing his kindness towards what she considers a slight. She has on at least two occasions suppressed her brother's rebellions and spared him due to their mother's wishes, however she eventually noted that she would execute him for good if he rebels against her again and would not be concerned no matter how her mother begged and pleaded. This desire to steal Yoshiharu has earned her much enmity from Nobuna, yet at the same time both of them will get along perfectly if they believe he has come to harm. This event also secured the affection of Magoichi Saika as well, who now constantly seeks to make him her husband. Due to Zenki's centuries of experience and his great wisdom, Yoshiharu usually finds himself learning from him, and Zenki himself seems to actually take a mentoring role towards Yoshiharu on occasion. As of this writing, Sentai Filmworks holds the North American license for The Ambition of Oda Nobuna. She has a heart-shaped face with big brown eyes. Her mother has frequently dotted on her younger brother, and arguably is the cause of both of his previous rebellions and nearly causing Nobuna to have to kill him. 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. 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. It is also shown in the series that Yoshiharu has a weakness for cute girls, as shown in several occasions, such as in episode 4 when the Oda army ambushes Yoshimoto Imagawa's camp. However, both her father and the missionary later died, which ultimately caused her to become withdrawn, short tempered and impatient with her retainers. Nobuna also has no problem swindling Katsuie, once giving her a dirt quality tea set and claiming it to be worth all of Mino, and Katsuie has absolutely no problem believing it. The Ambition of Oda Nobuna 11 *spoilers* Anime and Manga - Other Titles This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards. High school student Yoshiharu Sagara wakes up and finds himself in the middle of a raging Sengoku period battle. 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. He changed into this attire right off the bat in the first novel after Nene's grandfather Asano gave him a foot soldier's uniform, though it stands to reason he still has his modern clothing, he doesn't wear it usually. Amusingly, Yoshiharu responds to these offers in a playfully professional, if somewhat perverted, and analytical manner. 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. She became the leader after the death of her father. He also tells Hanbei that he just wants to serve Nobuna, and "make her shine.". Shikanosuke however eventually learns of her fate from Zenki in the latter's provocation towards Yoshiharu, after which she goes off to give her life so that Ukita will release Kanbei from his custody. She is often depicted with a musket (matchlock) in official art. Finally and most obviously, being from the future grants him a number of advantages over everyone else, as he can predict the events which will occur and respond to them accordingly. At the start of the series Yoshiharu had but one skill, and that alone, an almost superhuman ability to avoid being hit by dodge balls, which thankfully translated over to spears, kicks and punches as well. Nobuna cared enough about him to be conflicted over the chances of his death occurring, when his son rebelled against him and her own inability to actually help him, adding Yoshiharu's life into the equation was what finally swayed her into saving him. He then proceeds towards the fallen Yoshimoto and persuades her to surrender. With his dying breath, the warrior pleads for Yoshiharu to … Mitsuhide is immensely sharp at this, realising their feelings quickly after they became and item and interfering with them whenever they're alone. She would go so far as to burn a temple down if he refuses to return to her side and continues to play around with the harem he managed to build on the inside, ironically he himself did actually want to return at this time. After hearing this and realizing that ultimately Nobuna was doomed because of it, not Yoshiharu, she begins to realize the struggle he has endured. At the nearest opportunity, Yoshiharu took it upon himself to punch Ukita once in Zenki's name, and his grateful for his sacrifice. Being the only man who actually knows what her "Jakigan" really is, just a harmless pair of different colored eyes, Yoshiharu is probably also one of the few people who actually would fight her in battle, everyone else is too afraid of the rumors spread by her herself about the eye's so called supernatural powers. 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. Ironically this turned out to have positive results as Nobusumi discovered that Nagamasa was a woman and developed romantic feelings for her; later, after his ordeal where he escaped and returned to the Oda clan, Nobusumi has awoken to romance and is more mature in that field than either Nobuna or Yoshiharu, both of whom he actually tries to bring together and can even briefly cause the other Oda retainers to become inspire to literally drag Nobuna to Yoshiharu when he believes she's gone too far. The anime was produced by Studio Gokumi and Madhouse and aired on Japanese television from July 9-September 24, 2012. Though, because Nobusumi had coincidentally appeared, stating his loyalty to his sister while doing an oiran dance as he was dressed like a woman, did Nobuna realize she can give her “sister” to Nagamasa; thus, Yoshiharu realized he gave Nobuna an unintended suggestion as Nobusumi was forced to cross-dress, be given the new identity as Oichi, and was sent to be married to Azai Nagamasa. It is directly stated by Imai Soukyu that the key distinction between Nobuna and Mitsuhide is that Mitsuhide's mother was actually enough of a genius herself to realize her daughter's worth, sadly, Nobuna's mother is no such thing. Whenever it involves Yoshiharu she is far too quick to be deceived and snap, as when she was told she'd betrayed him in her sleep by Menmi she not only believed it but nearly broke because of it. Sometime later in the novels, roughly around Volume 11, Yoshiharu is shown to have become considerably more muscular than he was originally, although it does not often show through his clothing. Vice-Captain (Volume 2) Sentai Filmworks released The Ambition of Oda Nobuna back in December 2014, and while we’ve had streaming access for the Japanese language version with English subtitles for a bit, the English dubbed version is now showing up. The slight hostility between Yoshiharu and Katsuie was also a note to the real life situation. Sentai Filmworks has announced the license of The Ambition of Oda Nobuna. 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. File:Oda Nobuna no Yabou - Volume 07 -Baka-Tsuki--Autogenerated--Dark- 0162.jpg In volume 13, it was confirmed that Sagara Yoshiharu was in fact, a descendant of Sagara clan in Higo province (Kyūshū island). Yoshiharu is a young man of average height, with a slim build. Her opinion of his spikes even higher after he uses his one wish, which Nobuna had to grant, to prevent her marriage to Nagamasa(Katsuie had believed that if Yoshiharu won he would take Nobuna instead, and that she had to protect her from both him and Nagamasa), During this particular instance, Katsuie is visibly seen hugging Yoshiharu. She seems to enjoy teasing Yoshiharu. He is trusted by the Viper in return, though Dousan is his usual stubborn self in showing it. She wears a tiger skin wrapped around her waist, over a black hakama with yellow trim at the bottom, and white tabi with zōri. Yoshiharu does not seem to resent or fear Shingen in any way despite her being a powerful enemy and he is trusted enough by her to lend him her troops to lead into battle against Date Masamune. She got the idea of her "Jakigan" from him after he mentioned it and revealed to her the truth of her Hetero-chromatic eyes, and shockingly puts it to genuinely good use in psychological warfare later on. Over time Yoshiharu became an increasingly more significant person in her eyes due to his ability to understand her ambition, a trait shared with but three other men in her life, namely Saitou Dōsan, her father and an unnamed missionary, all of whom are presently deceased. Needless to say that the aformentioned generals were appauled by this idea until they saw his leadership in battle, at which point they too seemed to acknowledge him. In the series, Yoshiharu and Inuchiyo become buddies and are usually seen with each other. 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. 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. Whenever another character has pointed Yoshiharu out as being harmful to Nobuna's goal he has either fallen totally silent or openly agreed with them. Strategically Yoshiharu has also become a fairly adept leader and is fearless when it counts. In an alternate past where the armies of Japan are led by female warlords, one woman’s dreams will shape a nation in SentaiFilmworks' latest acquisition, The Ambition of Oda Nobuna. 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. At one point, he effectively had Inabayama Castle in his clutches, all he would have to do would be to kill Hanbei herself and it would be her's, the fact that he never thought of this nor considered it when she herself brought it up further provided her reasons to trust in him. Looking for information on the anime Oda Nobuna no Yabou (The Ambition of Oda Nobuna)? The relationship between Katsuie and Yoshiharu was not so close compared to the others with the latter. 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). The Ambition of Oda Nobuna is based on a light novel series written by Mikage Kasuga and illustrated by Miyama-Zero. as with many girl's in the series, Yoshiharu finds her quite attractive. Her relationship with her mother seems particularly bad as a result of it she perceives her friends and retainers as family rather than servants and hates to see them quarrel. 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. At this point in the story, he still acts like an older brother to her, scolding her for her actions yet also giving her good advice and encouraging her to help the mother she is afraid will turn on her, due to her insecurities about her eyes and mixed racial birth. Interestingly, even in the Sengoku period, he wears the same attire, with nobody even questioning his then-strange clothing. At the end of episode 2, he swears his loyalty to her, in a European Knight manner. After this, she managed to regain her calm mindset and attacked Takeda again, this time yielding much better results. Novel Illustrations Chapter 1 Become the monkey Saru of Nobuna! During her father's funeral she noticed that the retainers were plotting against her and citing her brother to be a more fit ruler rather than morning for her father. 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. His confrontation with his (supposed to be) ancestor (Sagara Yoshihi) would be able to make him "disappear". They later got together during the Christmas celebration which signified the mutual retreat of both invading armies, a fact which, much to their fear, was not unnoticed by the public. She ultimately lost her temper and threw her father's ashes on the buddha statue rather than following tradition, which furthered their opinions. After being rescued she cried and fell asleep in Yoshiharu's arms. If nothing else, she is willing to say she will protect herself and Nobuna from the "saru" and is quite clearly jealous and frustrated with how close he has become towards Nobuna, or perhaps the other way around, or both. However, in contrast to the historical sister of Oda Nobunaga, a confused Nobuna had stated that she had no sister and only a little brother. Nobuna's opinion towards Yoshiharu was originally very blunt, when he saved her life from an enemy's spear she repaid him by sparing his life from Katsuie and after he managed to empty a lake she ordered him to empty in order to prove there wasn't a dragon god in it she accepted him as a footsoldier. Yoshiharu swears loyalty to Nobuna "barbarian style" (European). Yoshiharu's relationship with Motoyasu's ninja, Hanzo, is rather obscure due to the latter nature. She is surprisingly naive and gullible for her intelligence, and was easily deceived by the likes of Menmi Senchiyo. She tends to have a rather mother-like or older sister-like personality towards him at times when he needs it, such is her role as a nun. As his plans to destroy the Oda Faction failed, he slowly loses his sanity and in a desperate attempt to finally kill Nobuna, he betray his allies by setting Mount Hiei, where he and his allies are, on fire. He eventually trains and becomes quite skilled in the use of the spear, the bow, and horse riding, although he was unable to do the last for some time and would usually have to hitch a ride on Goemon's horse instead. Even louise Frois, a sworn Christian, shows affection towards him, although she sees herself as "healing his heart" during times of need and takes on a more maternal persona towards him. 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. 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. He is shown wearing a suit of armour in battle on multiple occasions as well as attending parties in attire fit for the time period.
