Mitsunari Ishida is a warlord and romanceable character in bothe the Japanese and English versions of Ikémen Sengoku. He is voiced by Yoshitaka Yamaya.
Mitsunari is often seen wearing his uniform, consisting of purple, gold, white and black accents. He has dark grey hair with purple eyes, and a beauty mark under his left eye near the back. His appearance is often described in ways that refer to angelic or holy beings, heaven, or a deity of some sort. His smile is very commonly seen as being angelic and beaming, and he's very often seen smiling.
In a bonus story, MC describes Mitsunari's body shape as "tall and slim, but with a fit masculine outline." He seems to be the least robust of the Oda Forces warlords.
He is sometimes seen wearing spectacles, often when reading.
Mitsunari arguably has the most pleasant personality of the warlords; he's almost always hopeful, cheerful, and bright, and will smile in most situations, if not looking on just as pleasantly as his demeanour is. He's extremely helpful and will offer to assist where he can. He also seems to be extremely inexperienced with emotions, in that it takes him a long time to even suspect his feelings for the heroine in side stories and event endings he's involved in.
Mitsunari is an avid reader and bookworm. In Mitsunari's birthday story, Ieyasu complains about visiting Mitsunari's room and being nearly buried under an avalanche of books!
However, Mitsunari is not all good; he's shown at times to be envious of others, and can be extremely serious when he needs to be. Despite being a tactician for the Oda Forces, the weight of his role is a heavy one, and because of that he's willing to go to great lengths to preserve the lives of allied soldiers and warlords.
He's also shown himself to be self-conscious and lacking confidence in his abilities. He greatly admires Ieyasu's hard work, determination and skill in fighting. He's highly intelligent and a master tactician, so much so that it's deemed a "secret talent" by the Oda Forces, but he's hardly aware of his capabilities and doesn't have as much faith in them as one would expect considering his performance in keeping the Oda Forces' war efforts smooth.
Mitsunari is the second character encountered by the heroine. After saving Nobunaga from being assassinated, she Mitsunari arrives with troops coming to secure Nobunaga. Mitsunari shrugs off the heroine's refusal to present herself to him, instead apologising for not introducing himself. When she says that she comes from the future, he assumes she is dazed from the smoke and confused, and fetches her the default outfit given to the player before then getting her water.
Mitsunari's English route was released at the end of October 2018. He is romancable in both the Japanese and English versions.
Initially Mistunari is drawn to the heroine who is factual and willing to help as needed. Romance points are maxed for straight forward, factual statements such as, "I am not a cat," and "They're so nutritious!" (when Ieyasu mentions salads). Points are also maxed for options that show the heroine willing to help the Oda as much as she's capable. For example, during the army training exercise Mitsunari asks the heroine to write notes as he dictates to her. Choosing to "Give a friendly warning" about the heroine's writing abilities gives the most relationship points.
This section contains plot details about the game.
Mitsunari's dramatic route commences with a plot. The only problem is that Mitsunari's very life hangs on the threads of the Oda's success! Mitsunari puts all of his efforts as a tactician forward in order to try and plan successfully. The plan involves Mitsunari being portrayed as a traitor in order to mislead the townsmen and the Ikko Ikki who are still furious over the barbaric destruction of several villages across Japan. They hatch and execute the plan for his branding with a confrontation between Mitsunari and Ieyasu where the latter declares the former a traitor and "lividly" wounds him. His men then carry him off, marking the beginning of the Ikko Ikki's hot pursuit for his blood.
