Oda Nobunaga – Budding Hearts Main Story Review

2015-06-04 23.05.20(Oh…uhm… Thanks for your generosity?  I guess I won’t have to worry about every being fired as a servant with people like you around.)

Basic Story Premise: Your old life as a simple farm girl becomes uprooted when Lord Nobunaga suggests that you become a servant at his grand castle.  Working at the castle is a new adventure, and you adapt to your new role while also finding time to become acquainted with Lord Nobunaga.  However, not everyone approves of your potential relationship with Nobunaga, and you find yourself victim to petty pranks and jealous rumors.  You can’t help but believe you are overstepping your role; after all, you are a mere peasant while Nobunaga is the ruler of the country.  Maybe the others are right: you are merely a hindrance to Nobunaga who is striving hard to unify the country.  Will you choose to stick by Nobunaga?  Or is that just selfishness?  Perhaps the best choice is to just let him go…
