While I’ve had plenty of rewarding experiences recently watching shows like Ping Pong and Space Dandy, there’s nothing like watching something like Nobunagun. Adapted from Masato Hisa’s manga, this anime from Studio Bridge isn’t going to set the world ablaze, but it makes a point to have boatloads of fun, with both its quirky characters […]
