YMMV: Oda Nobuna no Yabou
  • Accidental Innuendo: "It's dark and hard... And it's got this gooey white stuff splashed on it..." note 
    • Although, by the look on her face and her voice, it certainly doesn't seem accidental.
  • Angst? What Angst?: He seems to have relatively no problem with being sent back four-hundred years to the past. It might have something to do with his genre-savviness and love for Sengoku period.
  • Badass Decay: Imagawa Yoshimoto. Her real-life counterpart was actually quite a Badass.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Yoshiharu and Nobuna's relationship blooms so slowly and steadily that you want to squee when they finally hug each other in the finale.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Takenaka Hanbei, who already topped the popularity charts before being introduced in the anime. Right, a glimpse from the previews is enough to put her to that position.
    • Second to Hanbei is Niwa Nagahide, who would also fall into this trope. (Nobuna is third)
    • There's also Bontenmaru, who got her own novel.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • My Girlfriend is Oda Nobunaga, based on the show's main premise.
    • "Broemon" for Hachitsuka Goemon.
  • Fetish Fuel: One would wonder why Nobuna goes around with half of her kimono open, a black bra, and a tiger pelt...
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Shibata Katsuie is an aide of Oda Nobukatsu, who later crossdressing as Oichi. Historically, Katsuie married Oichi after Azai Nagamasa's death.
    • Before episode 10 where Nobusumi as Oichi hands a double-tied beanbag to Yoshiharu was aired, episode 21 of Hyouka had shown that very item as a plot device, complete with a lengthy explanation of its purpose, much to non history-savvy viewers' glee.
    • Konoe Sakihisa dies earlier than historically had been. He was Toyotomi Hideyoshi's adopted father. Now remember that Yoshiharu is supposed to be Hideyoshi's replacement.
  • Les Yay: It might be a case of Values Dissonance, but Mitsuhide certainly seems to have a crush on Nobuna. Borderline Yandere when Yoshiharu and the princess show affection at each other.
    "Nobuna-sama's smile belongs to Juubei!"
    • Danjyou was very overtly turned on by Mitsuhide's combat prowess.
    • Danjyou caresses Nagahide as she whispers on the latter's ear sensually at the beginning of the final episode.
  • Memetic Molester: Yoshiharu (who has so many little girls liking him), Yoshitatsu (who tried to make Hanbei his concubine), Hanzo (whose loyalty to Motoyasu is second to none), and all of Goemon's henchmen.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • Yoshiharu's iPhone 4S is an undercover Nokia
  • Tear Jerker:
    • Dousan's letter and everyone's reactions after Nobuna reads it.
    • Episode 11 in entirety is full of these.
    • The last parts of volume 5 would make anyone shed Manly Tears.
