This weekend at Nagoya Castle was a PR disaster for anyone who a Nobunaga fan. This new Nobunaga statue which was shown to the public at the Ni no Maru section of the castle was not a true representation of Nobunaga. Instead, it was an anime figure who is supposed to be Nobunaga from the comic Ikusa no Ko. This statue belongs at a theme park or restaurant, not a place where Nobunaga lived. If they wanted to display a young Owari no Utsuke era Nobunaga statue, that would have been easy. A statue of him wearing his tiger/leopard skin hakama with a sleeveless top, multiple gourds around his waste with his swords armed with a matchlock rifle by his side. This would have been a more accurate display of Nobunaga during his time at Nagoya, not some lame comic character.
Tenka no tame!
