Chapter 3: The Art of Surviving a World of War

Nobunaga ordered Katsuie and Nagahide to train her in order to learn self-defense.

Among the ongoing uneasy days where she wondered if she would return to her original world, one day…

Chapter 3.1

Having become accustomed to life in the parallel universe called Shinga, I was being taught by Mitsuhide today too about the Oda territory.

[MITSUHIDE]: “Let us stop today’s studies here.”

[YUZUKI]: “Thank you for everything as always, Mitsuhide-san.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “No, I am the one who should be thankful. It is a delight to teach you when you are so passionate about learning.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Your passion is to an extent where I would like Katsuie to follow by example.”

It was natural to smile broadly when I was praised by Mitsuhide-san. But I couldn’t be unreservedly happy.

[YUZUKI]: (What I really want to know is about Shinga, or Himemiko-sama, or knowledge and information necessary to return to my original world……)

While I was thinking that and tidying up the books–

[MITSUHIDE]: “This is…… Nobunaga-sama.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “How is she, Mitsuhide. Has she become slightly useful?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Yes. She is extremely passionate and rapidly becoming able to read and write.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “I see. But one cannot survive on knowledge alone. At the very least, she needs to be trained so that she won’t die if thrown out into the wild.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “If thrown out into the wild, you say……”

[YUZUKI]: (When this person says that, they seem like they really would throw me out and that’s scary……)

When I thought this was ominous, Mitsuhide-san, who had been thinking seriously, opened his mouth.

[MITSUHIDE]: “Understood, Nobunaga-sama. She shall also learn the skill of protecting herself.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh……?”

Indifferent to my surprise, Mitsuhide-san–

[MITSUHIDE]: “We shall start in the afternoon at once.”

–said this with a smile.

[KATSUIE]: “…… So, that’s why you called us to teach this girl how to protect herself?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Yes. Because, presently, the Oda Army is in a strained relationship with the Toyotomi Army. It is necessary to prepare for unexpected circumstances, including the possibility of a battle……”

[KATSUIE]: “Guess so…… besides, even during normal times, public order’s gone bad due to the yakuma.”

[KATSUIE]: “And if a girl is caught by bandits or thieves, it’d be better to die than suffer through whatever they’ll do, huh.”

[YUZUKI]: “Um…… is the skill of protecting myself something I’ll be able to do as well?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “If you don’t become able, we’ll be in trouble. Because that’s what Nobunaga-sama wishes.”

[YUZUKI]: “O-Okay. I’ll do my best.”

[YUZUKI]: (I don’t want to die until I can return to my world……)

[MITSUHIDE]: “Then I shall leave this matter to the two of you.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Ah…… please do not forget to review today’s studies as well.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, I understand.”

[KATSUIE]: “Ugeh! They have you studying too…… Is that also Nobunaga-sama’s orders?”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-Yes.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Hey. If we’re going to do it, let’s start now…… ’cause this is a bother.”

[KATSUIE]: “Ou, that’s right. Looking forward to working with you for a while.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes! It’s a pleasure to work with you as well.”

    I’m laughing too much in this scene.
    The way Nobu talking about Yuzuki is like he’s talking about some kind of helpless rabbit. I don’t know why i get that kind of vibe from him in this scene. 😂

    But i love the fact that Nobu think Yuzuki need to know how to defend her self, because that’s exactly what Yuzuki need to survive in Shinga.

      I DON’T BLAME HER! Nobunaga doesn’t sound like he jokes much so when he says something flatly like then he means it |D;; and that’s pretty scary. (Why can’t I just bum around in the castle, Nobunaga–). Aha, I get the same vibe about Yuzuki being a helpless rabbit too although, like you said, it’s really nice of him to have her be taught all these survival skills! It’s almost thoughtful of him.

    Self defense as well? She’s handling all this pretty well in just a few days xD. I would have been swamped and tired lol. Ah…I just noticed this, but…does Mitsuhide play with his hair a lot? In the last screenshot, he’s just toying with his bangs xD. It’s cute haha~ Thanks for the chapter!

      LOL that’s what I was thinking too when I read this! Like, wow, what a packed schedule. Although she doesn’t have anything to do while staying at the Oda castle :’) it’s not like there’s any internet to distract her like we have.

      Kinda! Mitsuhide really likes that pose |D it’s his thinking pose, ahaha. Psst, by the way, if you right click the images and open them up you can get them in higher resolution! I just shrunk them down to fit them in the post but they are actually pretty big.

    How is the protagonist able to keep up!? That’s a lot of things at once…… that’s pretty admirable, I wonder if that maybe is a trait that Nobunaga likes? I don’t know, LOL, I’m not a good judge of character, haha.

    Thanks for the chapter! Man, I can’t wait for the next part though…… but can someone tell me why I have a weird feeling knowing that it’s BOTH Katsuie and Nagahide teaching her self defense? (゚∀゚)

    (I’m sure you know where I’m getting at, hehe~)

      Nobunaga is extremely puzzling and mysterious |D but I think normally anyone would be impressed at somebody running themselves ragged like this. When Mitsuhide said that line about remembering to review her studies as well I was like “??? SERIOUSLY??? GIVE HER A BREAK!!” ahaha.

      Heehee, I think… your instincts may be spot on. (。•̀ᴗ-)✧ Katsuie roasting session coming right up!
