SNB Oda ~ Chapter 1.5 ~

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 1.5

When we returned to the castle, a war council was held without any time to rest and I attended at the order of Nobunaga-san.

As the progress of the war was reported, everyone’s face seemed to more or less show pleasure at their victory in battle.

[NAGAHIDE]: “With all due respect, Nobunaga-sama, could we serve our soldiers with celebratory drinks of our victory?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “I do not mind. Give it to them freely.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “My lord. I shall arrange it afterwards.”

[KATSUIE]: “We didn’t settle things with Toyotomi but a win is a win! I’m gonna drink as much as I want!”

[RANMARU]: “Geez, Katsuie-san! We’re still in the middle of a council!”

.[KATSUIE]: “Hah? We’re mostly done talking about the things we need to talk about, right?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Yes. Next is…… you.”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-Yes?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “This is related to you, so please listen closely… Nobunaga-sama, please go ahead.”

[YUZUKI]: (Related to me?)

Nobunaga-san glanced at me and then told Ranmaru-san and the others indifferently.

[NOBUNAGA]: “This woman is to be welcomed as a retainer of Oda.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… Wha!?”

I inadvertently raised my voice at those unexpected words, but everyone else didn’t seem particularly surprised.

[NAGAHIDE]: “I heard about it from Mitsuhide on our way back to the castle but…… is the blood this woman has the reason for welcoming her as a retainer?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Correct. There’s no reason not to use her.”

[YUZUKI]: “U-Um…… what are you all talking about……?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “It seems like your blood is able to awaken the intrinsic strength of a power, which sleeps within us.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “That power is very similar to the powers of Himemiko, who had governed Shinga until recently.”

[YUZUKI]: (Eh…… Himemiko-sama!?)

[YUZUKI]: “U-Um! What kind of person is Himemiko-sama?”

She was someone who might know the way for me to return to my previous world–

Thinking it could be a clue, I immediately asked him that question.

[MITSUHIDE]: “Even if you ask that, we have not met her either and so we wouldn’t know. Moreover, Himemiko is missing right now.”

[YUZUKI]: (Mitsuhide-san and the others don’t know where Himemiko-sama went either……)

[MITSUHIDE]: “The only thing we know is that your blood seems to be blessed with powers similar to Himemiko.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “You may be a singularly special existence, apart from Himemiko.”

[YUZUKI]: (Special…… huh. Even if he says that, it doesn’t feel very convincing……)

[KATSUIE]: “…… Or are you acting innocent but actually Himemiko herself, huh.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh!? Um, I’m……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Who she is does not matter. What can be used will be used. That is all.”

Looked at with those piercing eyes, I trembled at what he was going to say–

[NOBUNAGA]: “I permit you to go freely inside this castle.”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah…… o-okay.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Mitsuhide, I will have a word with you. Come to my room later.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “My lord.”

At the end of that, Nobunaga-san left the room.

[KATSUIE]: “Hey, Mitsuhide, what’s he gonna say to you?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Let’s see…… It is after a battle, so won’t it be about the rewards gifted to soldiers.”

[KATSUIE]: “Oh! In that case, splurge on the guys in my unit. ‘Cause they pushed their bodies to draw the enemy’s attention.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “You’re right. I will convey that to Nobunaga-sama.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Katsuie, I’m going to prepare the sake. Help me.”

[KATSUIE]: “Hell yeah!”

[RANMARU]: “Then, I will escort this girl back to her room. Shall we go?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, please and thank you.”

[YUZUKI]: “Sorry to have you escort me.”

[RANMARU]: “No, it’s fine. From today on, you are also one of Nobunaga-sama’s retainers. So, you’re one of our comrades.”

[YUZUKI]: (…… Nobunaga-sama’s retainer, huh.)

[RANMARU]: “…… You don’t seem very pleased with that.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… Honestly, it’s so sudden I’m confused. Being happy is a bit……”

[RANMARU]: “…… You’re honest, huh.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh? Did you say something just now……?”

[RANMARU]: “It was nothing. Now then, Mitsuhide-san said this as well but please rest for today.”

[RANMARU]: “Tomorrow, I’ll show you around the castle anew so please look forward to it.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay, thank you.”

The next day– as promised, Ranmaru-san showed me around the castle.

But I could not remember where anything was in one day, and so I spent the next day being shown around the castle again.

And then, like that, three days passed.

[YUZUKI]: (I’m getting a bit used to living in this world but…… I haven’t progressed at all in searching for Himemiko-sama in order to return home.)

[YUZUKI]: (Imari-kun hasn’t returned either. It’d be nice if I could go looking but……)

[YUZUKI]: (I get lost even in this castle, so I can’t imagine Nobunaga-san giving me permission to go out…… ah, huh?)

When I turned the corner, I should have came out in the large hall used for breakfast, but I entered an unknown corridor.

[YUZUKI]: (I must have made a mistake along the way because I was thinking. Anyway… I’ll go back the way I came……)

I went to turn in the direction I had just walked, but in that moment–

[YUZUKI]: “Wah!?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “…………”

From the other side of an open door, Nobunaga-san looked down at me with displeasure.

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… What are you doing in front of someone’s room.”

      SEE WHAT I MEAN BY CLIFFHANGER! LOL. Toyotomi’s ended with Hideyoshi’s declaration about her being his bride which is kinda like “Huh??” but also seems very natural to end a chapter on that. But this ending is like ??? did they section off the stories wrong? It should have ended with Ranmaru escorting her back and then leave the rest to open Chapter 2 with but maybe they want the cliffhanger to keep people going because there’s no way you can stop after this line.

      L O L DIRTY MIND!! It never even occurred to me to read the line that way because he sounds so grumpy. I think he’d be more suspicious she was trying to spy on him or something. Fake being lost but then start snooping around.

      <33 your excitement keeps me happily trucking on with this so the next part will definitely be up soon!!

        Yeah, I feel as though Hideyoshi’s ends are kind of mild in regards to cliffhangers, they don’t go way too far. Maybe it’s because the creators felt that people would like Hideyoshi army characters more or something so they made very big cliffhangers for Oda, because – well, he’s kind of cold and cruel, so to speak, haha, maybe they figured it’d be a bit harder for fans to like him (in his main story at least)? It’s true though, there’s NO WAY I can stop after this line, it’s too suspenseful, ARGH!

        Haha, sometimes I do have a dirty mind, especially when it’s only Nobunaga and the protagonist in front of his room. But I mean especially when you don’t hear the voice, it’s kind of hard to tell, you know. That’s true though, “being lost” would definitely sound like an excuse, but let’s be fair: the castle’s probably really big, so wouldn’t it only be reasonable to be lost on day one? XD

        I am so excited, I almost feel jittery, haha! I am totally looking forward to chapter 2 since I want to know SO BADLY what will happen neeext! That cliffhanger is just too torturous…… (T_T)

    Oda~ If you frown too much, you’ll get a crease between your brows! Oh..oops! Too late lol > 7 > )). He has a very nice set of eyes tho, and his hair is so majestic. That last line of his tho…I’m expecting something to happen. Am I reading too much into this? Idk but it feels like some type of weird misunderstanding will happen xD. Thanks for the chapter!

      LOL I’m surprised he doesn’t have a permanent crease there already cause 70% of the time if he doesn’t have an emotionless face then he’s looking like >:( at things. KAGERO USUBA’S ART IS FOREVER GORGEEEEOUUUUUS. I don’t know if you’ve seen or heard of Reine des Fleurs but the artist also did the designs for that game and just ghkfgjhkfhjhg everyone is gorgeous. Please look forward to the Oda group’s awakening scenes because woooooooow.

      Are you implying something… dirty? |D
