Oichi Notes & Tips
- While some think that Tokichiro had earned Oichi's gaze it is more likely that it was the protagonist that she was interested in. In game she gives the protagonist side missions and speaks with them directly and fondly, showing great admiration and appreciation for their ability's. She even sings their praises to her brother, Lord Nobunaga, and even shares here Guardian Spirit with them. However despite her interest in the protagonist she is an important political tool for her brother and has duty's and obligations far greater than her personal interests. And their is a very high chance that many of Nobunaga's servants and allies would have out right revolted had Oichi ether been given too, or started a relationship with a Shiftling.
