Chapter 5: A Monkey’s Tail Moving Dangerously

A clue about the sacred treasures was seized, but Nobunaga appeared unconcerned about that with the Toyotomi Army’s threatening movements.

Furthermore, her actions were restricted as Nobunaga seemed to be wary of something…

Chapter 5.5

The moment Imari-kun and I spread out the scroll on the sacred treasure–

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Mm mm, I seeee now.”

[YUZUKI]: (Th… this person is certainly Toyotomi Hideyoshi! That’s…… wasn’t Nobunaga-san chasing him!?)

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Sorry about this while you’re surprised, but I’ll be taking that interesting looking scroll~.”

.[YUZUKI]: “Ah–!”

[IMARI]: “Y-You!”

Imari-kun leapt to recover the scroll that was stolen but–

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Huh? A tanuki? Hahaha, I’ll return this tanuki to the mountains.”

[IMARI]: “Uwah!?”

Imari-kun’s tail was grabbed and then he was thrown outside.

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun!? Hey, what are you–“

When I turned to Hideyoshi-san, the smile from Hideyoshi-san’s face disappeared.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “…… Shouldn’t you be more worried about yourself rather than the tanuki? Look– you’re wide open.”

The instant he said that, my feet were swept out.

[YUZUKI]: “Kyah!!”

Knocked down, I tried to get up in a panic but Hideyoshi-san straddled me from above. Like that, he pressed my arms and shoulders to the floor.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “You know, I just so happened to want to talk to you.”

Hideyoshi-san looked down at me, who was pushed down and unable to move, without emotion.

Even though his eyes weren’t scary to Nobunaga-san’s extent, it was like I was pierced and I couldn’t move my body.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “You see, I snuck into this castle the day before yesterday, and I heard that Nobunaga-sama, who seems to only be interested in unifying the country, personally invited a woman to spend the night with him.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “My interest was piqued…… Hey, who are you to Nobunaga-sama? His lover? Moreover…… this delicious smell of blood……”

Hideyoshi-san’s fingers, which held my shoulder down, lightly stroked my neck like a tease.

[YUZUKI]: “Ngh……!!”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Oh? What a cute reaction…… Maybe I’ll have a taste.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yo… you’re… a vampire too……”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “That’s right. Now then, don’t mind if I do.”

[YUZUKI]: “N-No!”

I twisted my body trying to resist but–

[HIDEYOSHI]: “–That’s useless.”

Hideyoshi-san buried his face in my neck and his breath hit my skin.

[YUZUKI]: (……!)

I prepared for my blood to be drunk. But–

[HIDEYOSHI]: “–!!”

Suddenly, Hideyoshi-san leapt up. And then he wrapped an arm around my neck and, as if I was dragged along, I was forced to stand.

[YUZUKI]: (… Ugh, it hurts……)

There, I saw–

[HIDEYOSHI]: “You returned unexpectedly quickly, Nobunaga-sama.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “…………”

[YUZUKI]: (……! Nobunaga…-san!)

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… Surely you are not trying to lay a hand on what is mine.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Oh? As I thought, this girl is your lover then, Nobunaga-sama?”

As if mocking him, Hideyoshi-san caressed my cheek. In that moment–

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… I will make it so that mouth will never speak again.”

[YUZUKI]: (H-He’s… angry?)

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Ahaha…… this is a seriously bad one. I can’t let myself be cut down here, so I’ll be returning this girl, here!”

Saying that, Hideyoshi-san thrusted me towards Nobunaga-san with all his strength.

[YUZUKI]: “Wah!?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Che.”

[YUZUKI]: (Huh… he caught me……? Why……)

[RANMARU]: “Nobunaga-sama! It appears that the one who ran into the forest wasn’t Hideyoshi, but Takenaka Hanbee! Hideyoshi is still in this castle–“

[NOBUNAGA]: “Aa. He ran away just now. Chase him immediately.”

[RANMARU]: “Y-Yes!”

Despite being overwhelmed by Nobunaga-san’s clear anger, Ranmaru-kun left the room promptly. When he did, Nobunaga-san closed the sliding door for some reason.

And then he drew near to me, who had sunk down to sit on the floor.

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… What did the monkey do.”

[YUZUKI]: “N-Nothing……”

I managed to squeeze out my voice while trembling at Nobunaga-san’s tone which was fraught with rage.

[NOBUNAGA]: “–Speak.”

[YUZUKI]: “Really nothing… he also didn’t drink my blood……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “You were thrown to the ground as he pleased, weren’t you. That’s why I told you to use your knife if you felt danger…… No… against the monkey it’d be useless, hm……”

When Nobunaga-san sighed deeply, he placed a hand on my shoulder as if to stroke my neck.

His movements, opposite to the rage that filled those sharp eyes, were extremely gentle–

[YUZUKI]: (…… Ah.)

Slowly, I was pushed to the ground. But, unlike the time with Hideyoshi-san, I felt no fear. Only my heartbeat steadily quickened.

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… If you cannot protect your own body, then obey what I say without fail. Otherwise, a young girl like you will be easily killed.”

His right hand took my arm against the floor and his left hand softly caressed my neck. As if he were searching for where fangs could have pierced me–

[NOBUNAGA]: “If you do not wish to die, then obediently let yourself be protected by this Oda Nobunaga.”

Along with his sweet, whispered words, Nobunaga-san’s lips touched my throat.

[YUZUKI]: (Ngh……!!)

My body jerked and then trembled with nervousness. As if he were enjoying my reaction, Nobunaga-san’s lips trailed from my throat to the base of my neck–

[YUZUKI]: (My blood is… going to be sucked again……)

Nobunaga-san’s fangs touched my neck.

[YUZUKI]: (…… Huh?)

Nobunaga-san did not suck my blood but merely gave me a slight love bite before raising his head.

[NOBUNAGA]: “Whose retainer are you. Say it.”

It wasn’t his usual strong command, but a whisper that brushed my ears with a gentleness that could be felt somewhere.

[YUZUKI]: “T-That is… yours……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “No. Say my name. Whose retainer are you.”

[YUZUKI]: “……N-Nobunaga-san’s.”

When I managed somehow to call out his name, Nobunaga-san finally released me, seemingly satisfied.

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… I will forgive you today with this. However, if you disobey orders again and cause trouble…… At that time……”

[YUZUKI]: “O-Okay. I’ll be careful.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Do not forget those words.”

[YUZUKI]: (For some reason… Nobunaga-san is kind today……)

Even though Nobunaga-san had already released me, my heart still pounded without stopping. At that point–

[RANMARU]: “Nobunaga-sama, excuse me.”

[RANMARU]: “…… I deeply apologize but we failed to catch Hideyoshi. Mitsuhide-san and Katsuie-san are still pursuing him though……”

[YUZUKI]: “… Ah, the scroll! That person stole the scroll from me!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… The one written about the sacred treasure?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes…… um, I’m sorry……”

[RANMARU]: “No…… It is our responsibility for allowing an invasion.”

[YUZUKI]: “But……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Enough. In any case, I had no intention to search for that sacred treasure.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “We needn’t search because we already have a trump card here.”

[YUZUKI]: (…… Trump card?)

Although I was curious, when I looked up at Nobunaga-san I saw that he had grit his teeth hard–

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… That monkey, to think he laid a hand on what is mine.”

[YUZUKI]: (…… It’s the first time I’ve seen Nobunaga-san this angry. Maybe it really is frustrating for the scroll to have been taken.)

[YUZUKI]: (Or is it that he’s angry about me…… No, that can’t possibly be true, right?)

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… Ranmaru, take her to her room.”

[RANMARU]: “Yes, my lord…… Come, let’s go.”

[YUZUKI]: “Mm……”

I left Nobunaga-san’s room with painful reluctance.

    Fufufu. My favorite part from Oda’s chapter 5~
    I love the confrontion between Hideyoshi and Nobunaga. Hideyoshi sure enjoy that situation. He openly mocking Nobunaga and enjoy his reaction, and i can feel how agitated Nobunaga in that moment. Kudos to the VA’s. Both Hanae-san and Morikawa-san really did a good job to convince the tension and the characters feeling through their voice.
    And i know this is supposed to be Oda’s route, but i can’t help to love Hideyoshi even more than i should have. The same thing happened in Toyotomi’s route too, i can’t help but love the Oda boys who show up in Toyotomi’s route. 😂

      Gods, yeah, if I wasn’t already a fan of Hanae (from 9S in Nier: Automata) his role as Hideyoshi would make me one instantly because he’s just so good at conveying this playful danger. And Morikawa is always amazing as a ruthless lord LOL the way he just kinda breathed out when he saw Hideyoshi with Yuzuki was, ahhhh!!

      LOL same same. My heart hurts because they’re fighting and being so cold to the others (and you! depending on which side you are) but it’s also so good because you get to see other sides to them. Have you gone through all the other routes as well, or?

    Thank you for your translation thus far. I can’t wait for you to reach ch7 where Mitsuhide talked about his betrayal bc my level of Japanese really don’t get one bit about them, only that Hideyoshi wanted him dead or something >_<

      <33 Thank you for reading and all your comments!! Haha, Mitsuhide loves using polite language and big words so I don't blame you |D;; we'll be getting there real soon after a quick detour into Toyotomi again!

    This chapter is so SEXY…….!!!!! <3<3<3 even Hideyoshi can be sexy too <3. It is enough to make my nose bleed (*////*). Nobunaga is really hard to read his mind, I can't tell if she really his/their blood bag or not. Oh and now Yuzuki is reluctant to leave Nobunaga's side (*///*)

      Ilinox responded:

      Hot hot too hot!! For both guys!! I love how dangerously aggressive Hideyoshi is here because we only get to see his cute but sneaky aggressive side in his army route |D;;

      Aha, even after re-reading these and having read the latest chapters I’m still torn on Nobunaga’s position too. I feel like it’s a complicated thing that yes he’s treating her possessively and protectively because she’s useful but her blood is such an intrinsic part of her (you can’t really separate the two) that isn’t it enough for him to value her for that? What kind of person keeps absolutely useless people around them anyway? Haha, I think even in real life and among our social circles everyone brings something to the group. In this case, it’s her blood… and things could be so much worse if he really did just see her as a blood bag! He could have everyone drain her 24/7 or lock her up or something but he teaches her things and says that if she’s unhappy with her current status then she should try to show him her worth apart from her blood. So, yeah, I guess TL;DR he does seem to care for her pretty decently though probably mostly because of her blood, but he seems to have expectations or welcomes expectations of her proving him wrong and being even more useful.

      Oops, excuse the huge wall fghjfghfgh I can’t stop analyzing these men.

    Hi there! ^^/
    I generally don’t comment that often, but this time I just had to write a BIG Thank You for these senbura translations!!!
    I’ve read all your senbura chapters ’till now, and I come daily to check the newest one with excitement ^.^
    I’m off to Japan really soon and I hope Senbura is a real hit there right atm, considering the very fresh anime and manga based off this game. I wanna find tons of merch…>: D

    PS: This chap btw…Haaa….*melts* <3

      October 23, 2017 at 22:20

      Aww, thank you so much for taking the time to comment then ;3;/! I’m sure animate will have tons of senbura merch along with stands and stuff! I’m not sure exactly how popular it is (compared to something like Enstars) but they’re certainly sinking a lot of money into this game, its anime, its manga, a novelization, and all the keychain and poster things and giveaways, ahaha. Hope you have a fun time in Japan!!

      <33 This chapter is one of the best chapters, hands down!!

        Haha, awh no need to thank for that ^^ I DO like commenting & chatting, but usually there’s way too much to say to so many different places and fandoms I love, so I just kinda fall not to comment at all xDD sore wa orokadesu…~
        But aaanyway! Yeah yeah I believe they’ll have at least something, and Imma gonna get them all like damn pokemons >: D and thank you so much!! ^.^

        And YES, this chap, I mean….aaah…BOTH of these guys..! Can’t take the heat <3 I loved how aggressive Hideyoshi actually can be, yet not overdue it. And I loved the way how gentle Nobu was even as he was struggling with rage. The fact that he didn't suck her blood, but only gave a lovebite, was just lovely ^^

        Ah, and plz do tell, 'cause I'm curious, who's your favourite clan(s), aaand fav guys?? ^^ at least what I've come to understand that you love Hideyoshi~ aaaand Date clan, yes..?

        Ilinox responded:
        October 25, 2017 at 13:44

        I totally get you on that commenting thing |D;; I’m not consistent in my comments either and then next thing I know I completely forget about leaving behind a comment on whatever I just read, oops. Haha, hope your suitcases can handle everything~.

        I think it’s super telling (about what, I’m still not sure) that Nobunaga didn’t bite her and just essentially gave her a hickey LOL or play bite to I guess assert his claim over her. Hshshhsh, like you said, THIS CHAPTER IS WAY TOO HOT! And yes, I totally agree about Hideyoshi being aggressive but not overdoing it. Whoever wrote the scenarios for the armies is really good at making all the armies lovable and believable yet still having to clash ;w; (thinking about Uesugi and Takeda too because UGH my heart at their clashes).

        Oh man this is rough because I basically like all the clans and all the leaders LOL they each have interesting principles that guide them and their army stories have such great dynamics to show that. In general, I’m really really weak to men in leadership positions too so all of the clan leaders are A++. But I still do have a ranking and it goes something like this:

        1. Oda (Nobunaga > Mitsuhide = Nagahide > Katsuie > Ranmaru)
        2. Toyotomi (Hideyoshi > Kanbee > Toshiie > Hanbee = Mitsunari)
        3. Date (Kojuurou > Date > Shigezane)
        4. Uesugi (Kenshin > Kagemochi > Kageie > Kagekatsu = Kanetsugu)
        5. Takeda (Shingen > Masanobu > Nobuharu = Masatoyo = Masakage)
        6. Sanada (Sasuke > Yukimura > Nobuyuki > Saizou > Kamanosuke)

        Honestly, those listed 1-5 are like SUPER close in terms of army stories. Unfortunately, Sanada is my least favorite in all respects |D;; My ride or die guys that I will endlessly roll gacha on though are definitely Nobunaga, Hideyoshi, Kojuurou, Kenshin, and Shingen.
