SNB Oda ~ Chapter 1.2 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 1: Valuable Blood

The Oda Army was heading into a battle against Toyotomi.

For some reason, Nobunaga had ordered her to accompany him to the battlefield.

It seemed like he was testing something, but what was the true motive…?

Chapter 1.2

[YUZUKI]: “What do you mean by vampires!?”

The people in front of me were vampires– I unconsciously raised my voice when I was told that.

[MITSUHIDE]: “By chance, have you not heard of the Gekka Tribe?”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…… Gekka Tribe?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “It is a general term for people who are not humans like us vampires and werewolves.”

[YUZUKI]: “There’s not just vampires, but others too!?”

.[MITSUHIDE]: “Yes, there are. Well, the Gekka Tribe members that belong to the Oda Army are the people here right now– we are all vampires.”

[YUZUKI]: (…… I really came to an outrageous world……)

[RANMARU]: “To think she doesn’t know about the Gekka Tribe, what a shock.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Aa. Is she a foreigner from a place without the Gekka Tribe……”

The moment the place started to become noisy–

[NOBUNAGA]: “–It does not matter what she is.”

At that imperiously strong voice, everyone caught their breath.

[NOBUNAGA]: “This woman will be kept in the castle for a short while. –Mitsuhide, you will manage this.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Acknowledged, my lord.”

[YUZUKI]: (I’m scared at being in a place with vampires, but it’s better than being thrown out…… maybe.)

Indifferent to the confusion I could not erase, a high-spirited voice leapt in, as if having been waiting this entire time.

[KATSUIE]: “Alright! If that topic is over, let’s talk about the battle now!”

[KATSUIE]: “Nobunaga-sama, you’re not gonna say that we’re done after that small squabble, right?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Naturally. We were testing each other but, in any case, the monkey should be moving.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Nagahide, I recall that you sent out scouts, correct?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Aa. They should be returning soon. Oh, speak of the devil……”

[ODA SOLDIER]: “Excuse me. Nagahide-sama, my report……”

A single man quickly moved to Nagahide-san’s side and reported something into his ear.

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… I see. Good work. You’re dismissed.”

[ODA SOLDIER]: “Yes, my lord!”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Nobunaga-sama, it looks like the Toyotomi Army just so happens to be moving.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Oh? Faster than I thought. –Nagahide.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Yes, my lord! I will order our soldiers to prepare for battle.”

[RANMARU]: “As expected of Nobunaga-sama! Hideyoshi is in the palm of your hand!”

[KATSUIE]: “Just you wait, Hideyoshi! I’m gonna get you back this time!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Oi. You’re coming too.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha!? M-Me……?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “…… You as well, these are Nobunaga-sama’s orders. You will be coming together with us.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… I understand.”

It seems there was no choice other than to obey, so I could only nod.

The place I was brought to was the middle of a forest. The battle had already started and, if I strained my eyes, I could see people fighting beyond the trees.

Slashing, being slashed– every time I heard someone’s last screams, I became scared and reflexively blocked my ears.

[YUZUKI]: (Why was I brought to this place……)

Not even paying attention to me, who was scared, beside him, Nobunaga-san and the others spread out a map and had a strategy meeting.

[NAGAHIDE]: “Nobunaga-sama, Katsuie has started to force back the Toyotomi Army’s frontline.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “If we can draw the enemy’s eyes to the frontline with this condition, we can send a detached force to the Toyotomi Army’s back.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Good. Nagahide, you will go to the frontline and draw the enemy’s attention along with Katsuie.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “My lord.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “…… Is this well? Our enemy is Hideyoshi. This could also possibly be an inviting trap……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Who cares. I will teach that monkey that my head cannot be taken with cheap tricks.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Gather troops immediately. We will strike directly with a small elite force.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Yes, my lord.”

[RANMARU]: “Nobunaga-sama, allow me to accompany you too!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Aa…… And you will come too.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha… but……”

[RANMARU]: “It’s safer to come with us than to stay here.”

[YUZUKI]: “O-Okay.”

Urged by his smile, in the end, I went along with them.

We continued into the forest, aiming for the place that was said to hold the enemy’s main camp.

[YUZUKI]: “Um, if we run into any enemies along the way……”

[MITSUHIDE]: “There is no need to worry, because we have sent an advance reconnoitering party.”

[YUZUKI]: “Reconnoitering party……?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Those who have the task of scouting out the enemy’s movements and numbers.”

[YUZUKI]: “I see……”

[RANMARU]: “…… Nobunaga-sama. It is time to settle things with Hideyoshi at last, huh.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… Aa.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… The opponent everyone is fighting right now is the Toyotomi Army… right?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Yes. The enemy general is Toyotomi Hideyoshi–“

[MITSUHIDE]: “They are vampires the same as us, and used to be members of the Oda Army…… but they broke away and, presently, they are now enemies.”

[YUZUKI]: (Broke away… as in betrayed…… but… huh? Wasn’t it Akechi Mitsuhide who betrayed Oda Nobunaga?)

[YUZUKI]: “Um…… why did that person, Hideyoshi, betray the Oda Army?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “……! That is……”

    Ooh~ a cliff hanger! How cruel ;; 7 ;; ))
    Anyway, this part “Who cares. I will teach that monkey that my head cannot be taken with cheap tricks” …I just find this so funny haha! He’s so nonchalant about facing Hideyoshi that it’s so funny xD. When discussing possible plans of an ambush, it’s very unexpected to hear a “who cares” getting thrown about lol. Thanks for the chapter!

      It’s not me!! Blame the writers!! |D

      I love how Nobunaga has the chillest of one-liners sometimes. I kinda messed up that line actually because at the time I was translating this page I couldn’t think of the word I wanted and went with “who cares” but “it doesn’t matter” would probably be a better fit here, oops.

      Fun fact! Nobunaga uses this phrase (かまわん “kamawan”) everywhere. He does it three times in Chapter 1 but all three times I ended up translating them a little differently because of context 🙃. Don’t you just love it when one word in a language holds loaded meanings though this one isn’t as bad as others…

      But yeah, haha, Nobunaga is overflowing with confidence kinda like someone else we know– *coughs* Hideyoshi *coughs*. I can’t wait for you to read the next chapter especially because we’ve experienced a little of the Toyotomi army… :’))))

    Cliffhanger! Urgh, I need the next part, please! I wonder what Mitsuhide is going to say or how he’s going to respond, even Oda! I wonder how he will react? I’m going to sit here and wait patiently for the next part. I can do it. Totally. Yeeep. ☆⌒(> _ <)

      The next part is “……! That is……. because the creators thought Hideyoshi would make a cuter separate army than me!! 。゚(゚ノД`゚)゚。” //bricked. JUST KIDDING.

      But yeah I really wonder why they made Hideyoshi the betrayer when they could have easily used Mitsuhide?? I mean I’m sure they’re already taking liberties with everyone’s personalities (I don’t recall reading Hideyoshi being such a troll but then again I’m not well-versed in the Sengoku period)… though now that I have this image of SNB’s Mitsuhide and Hideyoshi I couldn’t imagine them switching places LOL unless you just swapped their names around.

      <33 I'd love to post everything in a rush but I gotta spread things out and make my blog look somewhat lively– //bricked. As always, thanks for the comment!!
