Nobunaga the Fool is a project consisting of a stage production and an anime series. The project will host three stage productions between December 2013 and Summer 2014. The play will combine original animation produced by the anime studio Satelight with live stage performances produced by Avex Live Creative. The project will have both onstage actors and a voice cast to embody characters.
The anime series will premiere in Japan in January 2014, but the staff has planned to host a pre-screening of the first episode on December 8 in Tokyo.
The Western Planet and the Eastern Planet.
Once upon a time, the two sides were bound by the "Dragon Pulse" spanning the heavens.
The civilization that once had prospered has now turned to a tale of dreams, as the inextinguishable flames of war tear the realm asunder. The two planets remain engulfed in endless battles.
The return of the super technology known as "sacred treasures" could revolutionize the world order, but no one knows of them but one person — a "heretical girl."
A girl from the Western Planet, Jeanne Kaguya d'Arc, saw heavenly visions of the birth of a "Star Messiah" who will save the world. She embarks on a journey to the Eastern Planet with Leonardo da Vinci, "the one who observes the world." They come across the heretic of the Eastern Planet and "the greatest fool of the day," Oda Nobunaga.
