Details on second main character in the manga "Drifters". Died twenty years before Toyohisa, but as a Drifter he has aged only six months.
A famous Japanese warlord that died in 1582, Oda Nobunaga is the first Drifter Shimazu Toyohisa talks to when he arrived in the world. At first appearance Nobunaga may appear to be just a crazy old man who likes to act flashy but in fact he is the most intelligent of the group with a vast knowledge of war strategies. He was called the "Demon Lord of the 6th Heaven" back in Japan due to his greedy nature and yearning to conquer things (seeing as that he once almost conquered all of Japan in an attempt to unify it), a title which he wears with pride. Because he was the first warlord in Japan to make use rifles in the battle field his main weapon so far is a arquebus rifle.
When Toyhisa first charged forward to help the elves it started Nobunaga's intention to conquer the country and take it for themselves. Although he is a protagonist he is not above manipulating peoples emotions and exploiting situations to get the results he desires. This includes using Toyohisa as a proxy general for the conquest and forcing him to make a speech he devised himself to get feed the elves fury about losing their country and becoming slaves.
Despite his greedy and devious behavior Nobunaga has shown to have an empathetic side which he tries his best to hide. The best examples is when Toyohisa tells him that his son died in battle and that he is not a replacement for him. Another is when the elves told about how the rulers of the country are actually trying to exterminate their species by holding the women prisoner and keeping them from having children.
Most of the comical fights within the group are instigated by Nobunaga such as mentioning that Toyohisa is dull headed at times or saying how his clans methods of battle makes them a bunch of freaks and that his family truly is insane. In a recent chapter it is revealed that he's planning to make Toyohisa a king after over throwing the Orte Empire and taking over the country.Then later they fight one of the Offscuorings Joan of Arc and Gilies de Rais
