Directed by Hiroaki Matsuyama
Based on the comic by Ayumi Ishii "Nobunaga Concerto" (SHOGAKUKAN / Gekkan Shonen Sunday)

After all, isn't peace the best in any day and age?
INTRODUCTION

"What if the historical figure Nobunaga Oda was actually a high school student who'd traveled back in time from the present day?"

Featuring such an unexpected concept and a pop worldview, Nobunaga Concerto became a bestselling comic that has sold over 3 million copies since its serialization began in Gessan (Gekkan Shonen Sunday) magazine in 2009. In 2014, Fuji Television Network announced a major project that would produce an animated TV series, a live-action TV series and a feature film based on this comic in commemoration of the network's 55th anniversary. Shun Oguri took on a double role as the high school student Saburo and Nobunaga Oda in the live-action TV series featuring an all-star cast that was broadcast in the popular Fuji TV "getsuku" (Mondays at 9 p.m.) time slot. Although it was a period drama, it was favorably received by a wide audience and maintained high viewer ratings. And now, the final chapter of the adventures of "Saburo/Nobunaga" that made audiences laugh and cry will be released in theaters!

"I'm gonna die?"
Saburo must face the time he has left to live. (It's a historical fact.)
And the fated day of the Honno-ji Incident arrives…

STORY

With the completion of Azuchi Castle and the unification of the country close at hand, Saburo happens upon a textbook and learns that Nobunaga Oda is fated to die in the near future. Saburo is confounded by this fact and it torments him, but he vows to go against fate and survive in this time period with the solid support from Kicho and his retainers. He plans to hold a wedding with his beloved Kicho at Honno-ji Temple in Kyoto [where Nobunaga died].

Meanwhile, sinister plots were being carried out around Saburo without his knowledge. Mitsuhide was jealous of Saburo, who was loved by everyone around him. Hideyoshi was waiting for his chance to assassinate Nobunaga because of a long-standing grudge.

Will Saburo be able to change the course of Nobunaga's history and build the peaceful country that he longs for?
What awaits him at Honno-ji Temple in 1582?

DRAMA DIGEST

I couldn't possibly live as Nobunaga Oda in such a perilous age!

Betrayals, conspiracies, and assassinations abound during the Warring States period. Saburo (Shun Oguri) is all set to back out at first, but through his interactions with his wife Kicho (Ko Shibasaki) and his retainers, a desire to create a period of peace begins to grow in his mind. Meanwhile, Kicho and retainers Tsuneoki Ikeda (Osamu Mukai) and Hideyoshi Hashiba (Takayuki Yamada) are shaken when they discover that Saburo has switched places with the real Nobunaga and that the latter is serving Saburo/Nobunaga as Mitsuhide Akechi. Grief-stricken after losing retainers and friends in battle, Saburo attempts to leave the castle, but Tsuneoki awaits him. Learning that he has supporters who wish to create a peaceful world alongside him even though he isn't really Nobunaga, Saburo decides to work with them as Nobunaga once again towards the unification of the country.
