SNB Oda ~ Chapter 1.3 ~

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 1.3

Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who had been a member of the Oda Army– when I asked for the reason why he betrayed them, Mitsuhide-san and Ranmaru-san’s faces stiffened at the same time.

[MITSUHIDE]: “That is……”

[RANMARU]: “Well, anyway, it means Hideyoshi is the enemy! That’s all you need to know.”

[YUZUKI]: (…… Did I ask something bad… since they were comrades in the past……)

[NOBUNAGA]: “…………”

[YUZUKI]: (But… I’m sure this person won’t show mercy, huh……)

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… What.”

I only looked at his face for a moment, but our eyes still met.

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, um… When you find Hideyoshi-san what are… you going to do……?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Kill him, naturally…… if things go well.”

[YUZUKI]: “What do you……”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Nobunaga-sama, a report from the scouts.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “They have discovered the Toyotomi main camp. It is ahead of us. They confirmed the appearance of a dozen or so soldiers and the general, Hideyoshi. Ishida Mitsunari, a commander of the Toyotomi Army, was not seen.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… I see. Mitsuhide, you will go ahead and wipe out those foot soldiers.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Yes, my lord!”

[RANMARU]: “Please do not get separated from me or Nobunaga-sama.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… Okay.”

[TOYOTOMI SOLDIER]: “T-The Oda Army has come! Protect Hideyoshi-sama–!”

[MITSUHIDE]: “You’re in the way.”

[TOYOTOMI SOLDIER]: “GUAAAAGH!”

By the time we caught up to Mitsuhide-san and his people the outcome was already determined.

[MITSUHIDE]: “Do not allow Hideyoshi to escape! Surround him!”

At Mitsuhide-san’s orders, the agile soldiers reacted and obstructed a human shape from trying to escape into the woods.

[???]: “Ah craaap, this is bad, huh…… Looks like I got found.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… It’s been a while, monkey.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Yes, it’s been a very long time.”

[YUZUKI]: (This person is… this world’s Toyotomi Hideyoshi……)

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Aw, I’m happy to have Nobunaga-sama personally come for my head though.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Oh, or….. should I say that Nobunaga-sama, you’ve personally brought your head to me?”

[RANMARU]: “How dare y–!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Enough. Do not fuss.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Monkey, my head is here. As you wished, I’ve brought it.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “………”

[NOBUNAGA]: “What’s wrong? If you’re going to take it, then try taking it.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Well, no matter what tricks you use or however many soldiers you gather…… your hands will never reach my neck.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Haha…… I see. You came all this way to say that……”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “How cruel. That’s why they call you the Demon King, you know?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Do you want Shinga so badly you’ll even kill your former comrades?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “You are the same, are you not.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Haha…… ’cause I’m a man. Of course I’ll aim for the best.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Thanks to someone, it’s been a backbreaking goal though. How about handing it over?”

[YUZUKI]: (This person, even though he’s cornered, he’s saying such goading words……)

[RANMARU]: “……! There’s no need for Nobunaga-sama to dirty his hands. I’ll take care of this person……!”

The moment Ranmaru placed his hand on his sword–

[???]: “As if I’d let you!!”

A high-spirited voice came with someone who suddenly jumped out from the bushes.

[???]: “Get the hell out of my way!”

[ODA SOLDIER]: “Guaaaaaagh!”

[RANMARU]: “Wha……! Maeda Toshiie!? Shouldn’t you be at the front–……”

[TOSHIIE]: “Hey, hey, Ranmaru. Isn’t it mean to say my name like that? Didn’t you use to call me Toshiie-san before?”

[RANMARU]: “Shut up! Nobunaga-sama, please step back! You too!”

[YUZUKI]: “O-Okay.”

Ranmaru-san stood in front of me and Nobunaga-sama. There–

[MITSUHIDE]: “…… Nobunaga-sama, a report.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Kuroda Kanbee and Takenaka Hanbee have appeared behind us. At this rate, there is a risk we will be attacked on both sides……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “I see.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Haha. Using a bait and a surprise attack from behind– it’s a common strategy, right?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Fool. Did you think I couldn’t see through this plan?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Oh, what. So, on top of knowing, you personally came here on purpose.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “I’ve told you. You can’t take my head with such little tricks.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “As expected of Nobunaga-sama! You won’t let me take the whole country so easily, huh.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “But…… next time I, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, will take that head of yours.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Toshiie, we’re retreating!”

[RANMARU]: “Ah, wait!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Enough. There’s no need to chase.”

[RANMARU]: “But……!!”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Ranmaru, calm down. For Maeda Toshiie to retreat back to the main camp where Hideyoshi is when he should have been fighting at the frontlines with Katsuie means……”

[RANMARU]: “Ah! Katsuie-san and Nagahide-san have won, right!”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Yes. This battle’s victory is ours.”

[YUZUKI]: (Then there’s no more danger, right. Phew……)

[MITSUHIDE]: “However, there is still Kuroda Kanbee and Takenaka Hanbee behind us. We need to avoid losing soldiers needlessly……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Mitsuhide. You will deal with–……”

In that instant, whoosh, I felt like I heard the faint sound of something cutting through the air.

[YUZUKI]: (That sound right now……)

[RANMARU]: “N-Nobunaga-sama! Above! Arrows–!”

Before Ranmaru-san finished, arrows came down in succession from the branches of the trees.

[NOBUNAGA]: “–ch!!”

    aahh this scene is quite a suspenseful scene in the anime. too bad they chose Toyotomi perspective for the plot or we’d get the arrow barrage scene.

      I’m pretty happy they chose Toyotomi because of all the Hideyoshi scenes we’re getting, but poor Oda gang is getting a bad rep as the villains when they’re all so decent themselves T_T.

    NOOO! Tell me, don’t go avoiding the question on me now! But I love the conversation between Hideyoshi and Oda, and we even saw a glimpse of Toshiie too! The dark wittiness was like a breath of fresh air to me, haha.

    But! What in the world is going on at the end?! I thought Hideyoshi retreated! Was that also a trick? An act of betrayal, OR! Hideyoshi hasn’t actually “retreated”, so to speak!? :O Ahh, now I wait… and waiiit…. But I can do that, right? I’ve done that many times before but I WANNA KNOW ;-; I look forward to the next part and as always thank you so much for translating this part!

    On a side note, isn’t it “Mitsuhide”? You typed in “Mitsunari” every time, at the places where indicating who is speaking at the time (the bolded names inside the brackets in this case), haha. Maybe I’m wrong, but I figured the only person who Mitsunari would use “sama” with is Hideyoshi X’3

      YELLS!! THAT WAS SUPER EMBARRASSING! Y-Yes… It’s Mitsuhide that is talking every time ;;;; oh my god how did I get their names wrong and use Mitsunari for this entire conversation kgjhkfgjh.

      :’)) I wonder if we’ll ever learn the truth of why Mitsuhide is here with Nobunaga even though he betrayed Nobunaga once too.

      I loved how Hideyoshi and Nobunaga were bantering but it also makes me so sad because it’s like DARLINGS!! DON’T FIGHT!! NOOOOOO. As for the end… I’m sorry but so many Oda chapters end in a cliffhangers LOL so you’ll just have to wait until the next update! <33 thank you for your comments and patience, hehe.

    Haha even though the reunion didn’t go well, I could tell they were quite close at one point…especially all that chatter about how Toshiie was formerly addressed. Conversation like that aren’t common on the battlefield xD. This tho! This: “Monkey, my head is here. As you wished, I’ve brought it.” Why is this so amusing xD ? They so leisurely poke fun at each other haha. How wonderful > 7 > ))! Thanks for the chapter!

      Really makes you wonder what happened that they would split off like that. When Hideyoshi asks Nobunaga if he wants Shinga enough to kill even his former friends, I was thinking maybe Hideyoshi disagreed with how cruel Nobunaga is? But then he pretty much admits that Nobunaga is right in calling him the same so ;;;;;;; Flashback chapter please!!

      Nobunaga’s eternally overflowing confidence LOL I wish I could have 1/10th of his confidence.
