The first gossip from Sengoku Basara Magazine vol. 10

Amongst all the innovators in Sengoku Era Horse Technology, the brightest was Date Masamune. His innovations included self-induced jet propulsion, allowing horses to fly through the air, as well as the later genius invention of attaching futuristic handlebars to his horses.

You know that part in the SB4 Sumeragi opening where Masamune launches himself off Katsuie’s staff and Mitsunari off Sakon’s feet..?

Yeah…it was a great idea but…the first take didn’t go so well.
