Chapter 3: Consideration

Gradually opening up to the commanders, she became used to living in the castle.

One day, she started helping Mitsunari-san, who was entrusted with a large-scale plan, but…

Chapter 3.1

[YUZUKI]: “Good morn–“

[TOSHIIE]: “I’m saying!! I can just go there in a flash and smack them out, right!?”

[MITSUNARI]: “Haa…… are you a true idiot? If this was a situation where you could so easily beat them down, then we wouldn’t be troubled by this standard of enemy.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Buuut–……”

Morning. When I came out of my room, everyone in the Toyotomi Army was facing each other, and seemed to be discussing something.

[HANBEE]: “Heeyy, then how about the plan I proposed just now? If it’s that, then I think we could manage something, you know?”

[MITSUNARI]: “It’s true your plan could do it, Hanbee. That is, if we shut our eyes to the colossal budget and personnel it would take to execute it.”

[MITSUNARI]: “Where would the necessary number of soldiers come from? How about the food and supplies to support those soldiers? And the personnel to carry those supplies? And the capital this requires?”

[HANBEE]: “Ehhhh~……”

[MITSUNARI]: “Don’t “ehh” me. Please think about a more realistic plan!”

[YUZUKI]: “Umm…… good morning, Kanbee-san. Everyone seems like they’re arguing but… did something happen?”

[KANBEE]: “Hm… it is nothing serious. Recently, it seems a band of defeated soldiers from elsewhere have been pillaging the southern part of the Toyotomi territory.”

[YUZUKI]: “That sounds like a big enough deal……”

[KANBEE]: “My meaning was that they are not difficult enemies. We cannot overlook the harm to our people but, under normal circumstances, we are able to suppress this standard of enemies immediately.”

[KANBEE]: “Merely…… their stronghold is in a bothersome area. It will be somewhat hard to reach them.”

[YUZUKI]: “That’s why everyone’s racking their brains, huh……”

[HANBEE]: “Then, I know, let’s build a fort surrounding the enemy stronghold–“

[MITSUNARI]: “And I’ve been saying! Where exactly is the budget and personnel for that coming from!”

The discussion rapidly became more heated and it didn’t seem like it would be settled for a while……

[MITSUNARI]: “In the end, realistically thinking, there is only the solid strategy I proposed. I shall prepare at once–“

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Alriiight! I thought of a great plan!”

At the point the discussion settled, Hideyoshi-san suddenly raised his voice and everyone’s eyes gathered on him.

[MITSUNARI]: “Wha… um, Hideyoshi-sama? What have you suddenly thought……?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Fufufu…… Does everyone want to hear my plan? Hey, wanna hear it?”

[TOSHIIE]: “Oi, oi, out with it.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “…… Basically! This time… let’s flood them! It’ll be the greatest flood that will swallow up the enemy base entirely in a muddy stream!”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Well, how about it? It’ll destroy the enemy in one stroke, don’t you think it’s a good plan?”

[YUZUKI]: “Umm…… I don’t really know about war but wouldn’t such a large-scale flood be hard to do……?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Ehhh, realllyyy? What do you think, Mitsunari?”

[MITSUNARI]: “L-Let me see…… Thinking about the materials and personnel and the problem of supplying them, I believe it is impossible–“

[TOSHIIE]: “Hey……”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Hm? What’s wrong, Toshiie?”

[TOSHIIE]: “Sinking their base with water? What’s with that plan……”

[TOSHIIE]: “IT SOUNDS SO FUN! I think it’s awesomely flashy!”

[HANBEE]: “I think it’s a good plan too~! It’ll be interesting to see their base swallowed whole.”

[KANBEE]: “Hm…… after submerging the enemy, we could use it as a reservoir. This is well thought out.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “As I expected, everyone else thinks the same too? Great! Then first……”

[MITSUNARI]: “H-However…… in order for this plan to be a success, we will require an enormous amount of capital and personnel……”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Don’t worry, Mitsunari! Because I believe in you.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “If it’s you, Mitsunari, you’ll definitely gather the funds and people to make this clever plan a success, and you’ll think about the detailed plans for the flood!”

[YUZUKI]: (Isn’t this just passing the whole task onto Mitsunari-san……)

[YUZUKI]: “U-Um, no matter how you look at it, Mitsunari-san doing this alone is……”

[MITSUNARI]: “…… No, your concern is unnecessary.”

[MITSUNARI]: “Hideyoshi-sama, please leave this to me. I will start creating the plans.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Thanks, Mitsunari! I’m counting on you.”

[MITSUNARI]: “Acknowledged. Then I shall get started immediately, excuse me.”

[YUZUKI]: (It seems quite hard but…… will Mitsunari-san really be okay alone……?)

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Ahaha. You seem to be very worried about Mitsunari. But it’ll be fine.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Well, this is how it usually goes.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “If it’s Mitsunari, he’ll definitely get it done. My adviser is excellent, you know~?”

[HANBEE]: “Yep yep. He’s someone with really amazing talent.”

[YUZUKI]: “B-But……”

[YUZUKI]: (No matter how capable Mitsunari is, I don’t think it’d change how difficult this is though……)

[HIDEYOSHI]: “If you like, why don’t you help him? Once you see it, I think you’ll understand Mitsunari’s amazingness.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… Okay. I’m going to Mitsunari-san.”

(T/N: History time! Apparently Hideyoshi is famous for his military strategies (along with just being an overall badass since he basically rose from being a peasant to the de facto ruler of Japan after Nobunaga’s death) and he used flood tactics during two sieges to a great effect, so that’s neat to see that here. Also LOL now we know why he’s so sneaky if he’s historically known to be really clever.)

      Poor Mitsunari ;;;;;; he literally just had everything dumped on him by Hideyoshi, but because he respects Hideyoshi so much he won’t ever refuse and will do his best to fulfill these crazy expectations :’D.

      I’m with Mitsunari on this one and thinking about the logistics that would take |D;; you’d have to redirect an entire river! Build dams! Oh maaaan! I was reading up a bit about Hideyoshi’s flooding tactics and it sounds so awful for the enemy army too because then they’d be standing around in stagnant water and fall ill and stuff ;;;; war is brutal but, on the other hand, it is a pretty good way of minimizing the damage on your side.

      <3 Thanks for commenting! We're blazing through Chapter 3 at breakneck speed, aha.
