SNB Oda ~ Chapter 4.3 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 4: What Lies Beyond Your Wish

Reports were received about there being eyewitness information on Himemiko in the Toyotomi territory, and so Nobunaga had Mitsuhide head an investigation.

At Ranmaru and Katsuie’s suggestion, she went to pray for her return to her old world but…

Chapter 4.3

He wanted to see Nobunaga-san’s written copy– being told that, I invited Nagahide-san to my room.

[NAGAHIDE]: “…………”

[YUZUKI]: (Ever since we came to this room, he’s been devouring that book……)

[YUZUKI]: “Um…… is that copy really that amazing?”

.[NAGAHIDE]: “Of course it is… It is awe-inspiring to the point where I would not borrow it……”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Nobunaga-sama’s writing is majestic while also being endowed with an elegant grace; I can only sigh in admiration.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “In rare cases, we are given written instructions he wrote personally but… because he dislikes waste, he only writes the minimum necessary sentences.”

[YUZUKI]: “I can see that.”

[YUZUKI]: (If it’s about Nobunaga-san, he talks this much…… I guess that shows how much Nagahide-san respects him.)

Because up to now we hadn’t talked very much, I was happy at the coming of this unexpected opportunity.

[YUZUKI]: “Um…… should I bring some tea?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… I’m fine. More importantly, how much of this book’s contents do you understand? Try explaining it to me.”

[YUZUKI]: (Could it be that he feels like teaching me!?)

I told Nagahide-san what I had read on my own in detail.

Long ago, a woman named Himemiko appeared in Shinga, and granted a power that exceeded human knowledge to a race suitable to govern Shinga–

That race, with the power Himemiko-sama had given them, united the war-torn Shinga in an instant–

And then they, who were now called the Gekka Tribe, had their descendants govern each land as a feudal lord–

[YUZUKI]: “How was that? I managed to read up to this much on my own, but maybe I was wrong somewhere……”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Well, the summary is pretty much that. The difficulties you said you were having, is the description about the military government in the next part, huh.”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, yes. I could just barely read the letters……”

[NAGAHIDE]: “–Until recently, the real power in Shinga was held by the military government.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “The military government guys, in exchange for guarding Himemiko, were granted powers stronger than us and because of that they governed many lords.”

[YUZUKI]: “But… that military government is not here anymore, right?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Aa. At some point, yakuma appeared in Shinga and the capital, where the military government was placed, was destroyed by them.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… Even though they were granted powers stronger than us.”

Having spoken up to that, Nagahide-san quietly closed the book.

[NAGAHIDE]: “I’ve taught you what you wanted to know. Now…… it’s your turn to answer.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh……?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… You’re not the missing Himemiko, are you?”

That was what I was asked when I met Nobunaga-san for the first time.

[YUZUKI]: “…… You’re mistaken. I’m not Himemiko-sama.”

[YUZUKI]: (…… Nobunaga-san and Mitsuhide-san already know, so I should reveal everything to have him believe me.)

I revealed everything honestly to Nagahide-san. That I wasn’t a human of this world–

And that Nobunaga-san and Mitsuhide-san already knew.

[NAGAHIDE]: “Basically, you’re someone who came to Shinga from a similar world and Himemiko holds the clue to return you to that world……”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes……”

[NAGAHIDE]: “I see…… so that’s why you didn’t know about the Gekka Tribe……”

[YUZUKI]: “…… I’m sorry for keeping silent until now……”

Although Nobunaga-san and Mitsuhide-san knew, I wasn’t forbidden to speak about it and yet I kept silent until now.

[YUZUKI]: (…… I was finally able to talk to him, but now he might hate me again……)

I was a little scared to meet his eyes and so I looked down–

[NAGAHIDE]: “………… Stop that.”

A voice that was so quiet I would have missed if I hadn’t been paying attention just barely reached my ears.

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… Stop that dejected look. If you make that face–“

[YUZUKI]: (Nagahide-san……?)

Surprised, I raised my head. At that moment–


[NAGAHIDE]: “–!!”

[YUZUKI]: “Wah! Katsuie-san… and Ranmaru-kun too!?”

[RANMARU]: “I apologize. I noticed the book you had was Nobunaga-sama’s written copy, and came to ask if I could have a glance at it but……”

[RANMARU]: “You were in a serious conversation and I couldn’t find a time to enter. I wasn’t intending to eavesdrop……”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… Katsuie, do something about that ugly look.”

[KATSUIE]: “SO WHAT IF IT’S UGLY! When I think about how she’s gone through such difficult thoughts secretly…… *sobs*.”

[YUZUKI]: “Uh… umm……”

[RANMARU]: “Katsuie-san, despite his appearance is quite, what you might call, compassionate or perhaps easily moved to tears……”

[YUZUKI]: “I see……”

I was surprised at that unexpected side and then–


Katsuie-san grabbed both of my shoulders while crying.


[YUZUKI]: “Y-You’re exaggerating… I wasn’t……”

[KATSUIE]: “NO! You’re a woman but you have a loyalty I respect……!”

[KATSUIE]: “Alright! Let’s go pray for you to return to your hometown one day!”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…… pray?”

[KATSUIE]: “Yeah! There’s a shrine rumored to grant wishes in the castle town! I’ll take you there while also patrolling.”

[RANMARU]: “That sounds nice. I’ll come and pray together with you too to thank you for having helped with work.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… Ranmaru. Is it okay for not to stay by Nobunaga-sama’s side?”

[RANMARU]: “Yes. He said he would like to be alone for a while to read.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “I see……”

[KATSUIE]: “Alright! Let’s go now!”

[YUZUKI]: “He left…… Um, Nagahide-san, what about you……?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “If even I left then who would protect Nobunaga-sama.”

[RANMARU]: “…… You say that, but don’t you just want to look at Nobunaga-sama’s copy still?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… Enough about me.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Ranmaru. I don’t think it’ll matter if you to go with them, but come back quickly once you’re done.”

[RANMARU]: “Yes, I understand. Let us go.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay…… Ah, Nagahide-san.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… What.”

[YUZUKI]: “That book is an important borrowed item and it won’t do if anything happens to it in my absence, so could I leave it with you?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… Don’t fuss over me like that. Hurry and go.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay, I’m going!”

      I MISSED YOUUUU!! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ Please take your time in reading them, heehee, I don’t remember the order of the chapters anymore and when I jumped to Toyotomi only to come back but hopefully you have a long backlog to enjoy!

      LOL he’s so cute but I’m also so curious as to what Nagahide would have done if left alone. His voice is SO soft here and he sounded like he was gonna do something ~interesting~.

        Haha~ I missed you and your translations too + o + )) !!I let my email pile up and scrolled all the way back to the last chapter I left unread xD. It’s a very long backlog, but I’m quickly catching up. So many things are happening so quickly tho and in multiple timelines and ahh that one chapter where Nobunaga and Hideyoshi had that lil conflict over mc hhh…so many many things xD

        But oh? Nagahide’s voice went soft? O v O )) …this…this is very intriguing and I suppose we’ll never know the answer to this mystery orz

    I was like this (Ŏ艸Ŏ) ♡⃛ɞ(ू•ᴗ•ू❁) at first and then when Katsuie the crying baby interrupt I become like this (╯ಠ‿ಠ)╯︵┻━┻ (ノД`)・゜・。Why…… why….. I want to see Nagahide’s inner beast 。゚(゚ノД`゚)゚。

    I can feel myself traveling down Tsundere Ave right now!

    But I’m really happy that Nagahide finally made his “debut” in the story. It took him a fairly long time to warm up to Yuzuki, haha. I guess he still hasn’t, but the fact that he actually taught her what she wanted to know is progress, right? XD Nagahide seriously made me smile, I thought it was super cute when he was all buried in the book that Nobunaga copied.

    I really wanted to hear what Nagahide had to say though, and then Katsuie had to come in! But I like Katsuie too. He is very compassionate despite his appearance.

    Thanks for the part, I always look forward to the next~!

      Nagahide is cute though isn’t he~. He’s not that vicious with his words, just very indifferent to the heroine and super lazy, haha. But yeah LOL we haven’t really had a dedicated Nagahide chapter until now! Omg, just to let you know Nagahide’s voice was REALLY REALLY soft when he asks her to stop making that look. It sounded like he was about to hug her or do something like kiss her or something LOL it was really soft and sweet and like “oh no, I can’t control myself if you continue looking like that–” kind of impression.

      But yeah, I think I burst out laughing when Katsuie bust in like that with a teary face. Crybaby Katsuie~.

      Also, man, I have SO many conspiracy theories about the origins of yakuma because what Nagahide explained about their history rings so many alarm bells. If the honor guard (lol the military government) that guarded Himemiko was given powers even stronger than the Gekka Tribe then how the heck did they get wiped out by the yakuma when our guys don’t seem to have any issues fighting them at all? Unless it was like a MASSIVE horde. I feel like something shady happened… but will the game take the story down the dark path I’m thinking? LOL.
