Mysterious Job Called Oda Nobunaga


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

The young Alsrod (Arusuroddo), is eagerly waiting for the day that he’s granted a “job” in the temple. In this world when one reaches adulthood, they are granted “jobs” like swordsman or magician by divine revelation, among them the one said to be the strongest is magic swordsman.

Alsrod is the illegitimate second son of a small feudal lord, and the seat is already succeded by his elder brother who already put him in the front lines, he’s in a position that could lose his life on the battlefield any day. If he became a magic swordman, a job that was possesed by the famous heroes of the past, he could change his situation.

However the job that’s granted to Alsrod is not magic swordman nor any of the other common jobs, it was a mysterious job called “Oda Nobunaga” that none of the temple’s people knew anything about!.

Good idea, poor story telling.

It reads closer to a story outline, than an actual novel.

I guess the worst example is a time skip of a few months, and then a year within a few paragraphs.

It almost reads like...


I decided to implement a new tax structure: (Info Drop)

It was successful.

After 3 months many merchants and even beastman merchants brought their business.

After a year, it even started to rival the capital's business.

Everyone liked it, and paid their taxes on time.

The problem with a story that use Nobunaga as a reference is that it follow too much in nobunaga’s foot step, from my experience only “Oda nobuna no yabou” manage to get past this problem. Nevertheless, this one manage to create an interesting character so it’s not all bad.

Another problem with this series is that while each of the chapter is not at all short, the story doesn’t invest that much in itself. Most thing that happens only last for a few chapter in a fast pace so it really... more>> regretable.

Well, it has a great potential. I just hope the author will give much more time to invest in it’s own world more. <<less

Oda Nobunaga becoming a job to a fantasy world. That seems right and for the protagonist he's destined with that job of his conquering the world.

So far seen fantasy world with mediocre ret*rded strategy and tactics in battle and war. MC with advanced war knowledge from his job would rock that world into submission.

Recommend reading it. It still young but will grow more.

[I read from the light novel, please, read from the light novel if you’re gonna read this story — you can find it free online with little digging. Much better translation quality.]

The main drive of this story is watching the protagonist slowly conquer his world, through war and political maneuvering, while raising the level of his civilization.

First off, the system of Professions or Jobs isn’t all that unique from any other stories out there, though you will be surprised that there are no expected status screens, and only the MC seems to have the voice of his profession guiding him. In tandem with that, you might recognize the name ‘Oda Nobunaga’ because he’s one of the most famous characters from Japanese history, and the most famous from the warring period. He almost conquered and unified Japan and would have done it too if he wasn’t betrayed. Basically, he is the go-to when describing a Japanese conquerer. In relation, the MC, his skills, abilities, and the story function much similarly to the history of the man—Rising from almost nothing to greater and greater heights within a period of perpetual war.

Moving on to a more detailed analysis of the story:

The writing, the grammar and prose, is pretty well executed. Whether due to the author, translation team’s handiwork, or both, you will have almost no issues enjoying the story from a purely English point of view. There are extremely minimum grammar, spelling, or typographical errors. I would have to rate it a near perfect 5/5.

The romance (s) in this novel, although above-average for most Japanese web novels, still sucks in my opinion. Don’t enter this story for it, it’s just a small icing on the cake. Though, the plus side is that the interactions between the MC and the female characters are interesting for the most part.

The action in this story is what I call ‘Soft Action’. It’s not the focus of the scenes and nor do they really tell a story of their own. It’s written well, for the most part, but it doesn’t follow the formula of ‘Action, Reaction, Result’ to enough of a tee. It basically says what’s happening, loosely shows some minor things, and carries on. It doesn’t make me sit in anticipation or anxiety, doesn’t make me worry, fear, or root for the MC. You know what’s gonna happen in the end, everything goes as predicted, there is no suspense. Thus, as I’ve seen so far, and with any ‘Soft Action’ type stories, it serves only to keep the main premise of the story going—a man rising to conquer a warring period. Just like the romance, it is only an icing on the cake.

The MC is fitting. Although he sometimes contradicts himself—like saying he is doing his best to protect Lavalia while literally bringing her through even more dangers, bruh she’s strong, stop saying that so uselessly—but he is mostly uniform and near perfect for this type of story. I could believe he existed in this world as a concrete being.

Other characters are also well executed. They are individualized and stand on their own with clearly distinct personalities. Even the female characters are written well, which is rare. Some of the female characters sometimes, however, lose part of this aspect as soon as they are within the vicinity of the MC for more than a couple breaths. This doesn’t happen frequently enough to be an issue for me, though.

The art in the story is great, but I feel like it’s often utilized or inputted at the wrong places.

Now for the grips with the story:

My first main grip comes in the form of the MC’s older brother, who was essentially used as a stepping point (this isn’t a spoiler, you know it will happen within two chapters if you’ve ever read any story before). He is way too incompetent to be believable as a Viscount heading a family that owns such a large land. Supposedly, since his father had planned for him to inherit the family lands from his birth, he should have been bred from a young age in all manner of things; from Politics, to Strategy, to War and Combat especially in their warring world. However, nope, he shows none of this traits, in fact, he is at the opposite end in almost every good trait but looks—which I assume the author did only to stroke the ego of the MC when compared to his brother. —Some of the MCs foes are like this, made to look dumb and weak in comparison to his oh so brave self.

A second grip is that somethings just don’t add up at all. At one point it states that one of the MC’s ability withers the opponent’s fighting power by 20%, but then next it states they are shaking, barely holding on to their weapons. In effect, that’s at least a 60 to 75% reduction. If you can’t grip your weapon properly, you can’t fight, plain and simple. This isn’t just a one off thing, there are many other situations where stuff just don’t make sense.

Third grip, the whole ‘milk sister’ this and that is simply cringe inducing to the modern reader. The best way to go about establishing such a relationship in this times is simply calling them proximity siblings or something. Good grief. At least it isn’t used too often in the later parts.

Fourth grip, the dialogues sometimes says things that are as clear as day, or could be better said through the narration of the main character. Like (spoiler) :


“There aren’t many foes here, since your brother was only planning to assassinate you! Let’s press on!” Laviala called.

“Yeah! And I’m not letting him escape, either!”

This would have been better told to us through his thoughts. ‘There weren’t many foes standing in our way due to the ploy being only to assassinate me, so we pressed on, cutting through the few in our way.’ Something like that would work far better.


Fifth grip, the story keeps mentioning it takes place in a war torn era, and how the MC will end that, but it doesn’t really show us any of the damages the wars have cost.

Would I recommend this story? Yes. I would pin it at 3/5. Amongst all the web novels I’ve ever read. An average light snack.

Lazy setting of a fantasy world with "jobs" providing insane boosts (especially rare and unique ones), barely developed world and characters, and fairly stong hints of harem from very early on.

Very basic language used, and rough translation on top of it (understandable, but a bit odd in a few places).

Up to here you might think that it's the usual lazy novel that isn't great but can pass your time a bit, and you would be mostly right, but the lazy setting goes a step beyond that.

A lot of the "plot"... more>> points are taken directly from Nobunaga's life (simplified a whole lot before being used, but still).

If at least it was left unsaid and that only people with a bit of knowledge about the man would really notice, it would still not be too bad (it's one of the most well known stories in japan so the original audience would notice anyway), but the author forces it down your throat with a "voice" supposedly from the man himself commenting on things every now and then, mostly how the protagonist uses the same things he did and that he deserves to become a king as a result.

The end result is a novel that for me is even half a step below the usual ones. <<less

The MC received "Oda Nobunaga" as a job, it gave him skills fitting for conquest and ruling, and Oda Nobunaga's persona in his mind to give him some advice.

Some of the events that happened so far are similar to how Oda Nobunaga lived his life, albeit correcting some of the mistakes Oda Nobunaga made:

Being a vassal and being "sentenced to death" by his master's actions and ended up usurping his master's position. In this case, it's his incompetent brother sending him to his death and after failing to do so,... more>> tried to assassinate him.

Fighting an army who holed up inside a religious temple. This earned Oda Nobunaga his "evil" image when he burnt a temple and commiting a genocide, but in this case, the MC made a move that won't end with a mass genocide, killing only those who have to be killed.

The story is also set in a medieval fantasy and it surprisingly has what I rarely find from other novels with the same setting: Being forced to a political marriage with the daughter of someone whom you might fight or have to kill later, and painfully sending your own beloved sister to a political marriage.

Although it still has a light hearted vibe in which it feels like a fairytale sometimes as everything seems to work out well, it also makes you anticipate about what might happen if all those things are actually a prologue to a storm? Because it also feels like everything could go wrong at any moment.

My verdict is that this novel deserves a good rating being able to dig some aspects of war and politics that some other novels of the same genre neglects, although it is very far from perfect and still has a lot more room for improvements as it also have some aspects of war and politics that it neglected. <<less

Just a warning to those who read this. This is more focus on harem rather than strategy that is actually half-assed copied. The MC is actually like an idiot-riajuu hero, like on those isekai novels where there are bad hero. The lines between MC and the girls is cringey af. Imagine spouting cheezy lines in the middle of battlefield. Imagine if you're assign to the fort with lower number than the enemy and you just sleep and let them attacked at night. The execution of strategy is half-assed and the... more>> author just make it works without minding other external factors.

If you can stomach those try to read this, but if you're looking a good strategy/conquering story you'll be dissapointed. <<less

So far, Oda Nobunaga is a pretty average story, not good but also not bad. I mean, it had a cool introduction, but it just gave me a almost bland story telling a lot of times. Moreover, instead of actually going into and describing how an event progressed, it would just time skip, which was annoying. There are plenty of better options in this genre, but I still had a decent experience.

Unique Job is OP! Thats what I can say, then again, theres hardly any non OP MC in these kinds of stories.

The story is quite intriguing but idk why im more interested on the relationship between the MC and his Concubines more than his ability lol.

Quite a pleasant read id say.

I will give this solid three, good for light read, basically Nobunaga campaign change it to medieval europe setting, mix it with fantasy element, and sprinkle of waifu harem.

The pace is too fast for me, im glad there is no (a lil) knowledge dump and other bs but thing just escalated too quickly so you cant feel the development.

Well if you are teen or younger you might enjoy it more since MC is OP af and kinda smart without any basis whatsoever, idea just pop up out of nowhere,... more>> get implemented, and boom success result. <<less

Came here from the manga and I have to say that this story while quite more solid than the usual JP novels still is mediocre and basically a light read.

I'd rather recommend the manga cause that compressed quite a lot of stuff and doesn't keep dragging things out through contradictory dialogue or stuff.

Overall I'd rate this story a 2.8, not great but enough to snack on.
