SNB Toyotomi ~ Chapter 5.3 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 5: Assault

Begin the infiltration plan to another army’s territory to seek clues on Himemiko!

She had to spend a night with Toshiie at a village they arrived at during this plan but…

Chapter 5.3

[NAGAHIDE]: “Archers, fire!”

[TOSHIIE]: “Kugh! Hide!”

[YUZUKI]: “Wah!”

I was thrusted away with all his strength and escaped the arrows but–

[TOSHIIE]: “Ugh… guagh!!”

Toshiie-san, who failed to escape the line of fire, was attacked mercilessly by the arrows. Several of them had pierced deeply into Toshiie-san’s body–

[YUZUKI]: “S-STOP!!”

[NAGAHIDE]: “–……! A woman!?”

It seemed like the enemy only noticed me now because Toshiie-san had hid me up to now.

[NAGAHIDE]: “Why’s a woman here–“

[TOSHIIE]: “–gh, you’re wide open!”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Wha!?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Kugh–!”

At a speed too fast for the eyes to follow, Toshiie-san slashed at Nagahide, making him stagger greatly.

[NAGAHIDE]: “Che! Looks like you have a strength that could compete with Katsuie…… Archers! Prepare the second wave immediately!”

[TOSHIIE]: “Hah, you think you can kill me with that!”

Toshiie-san slapped my back–

[TOSHIIE]: “I’ll be your shield! Don’t worry about what’s behind you!”

[YUZUKI]: (My shield……!)

I repressed the feeling of wanting to tell him not to do such a thing and ran.

[YUZUKI]: “Haa, haa!”

[TOSHIIE]: “Haa… haa… Alright, we’ve outdistanced them quite a bit.”

Having ran into the forest again, we sat at the base of a large tree that could hide our bodies.

[YUZUKI]: “Toshiie-san, please show me your injuries! We have to stop the bleeding immediately……”

[TOSHIIE]: “I’ve told you not to worry. This isn’t anything.”

[YUZUKI]: “There’s no way that’s true! Because you have arrows stuck in you……”

[TOSHIIE]: “It’s just three, isn’t it…… but, well, it doesn’t feel great to leave them in, so I guess I should do something……”

Saying that, Toshiie-san grabbed the arrow stuck in his own arm and sucked in a large breath.

[TOSHIIE]: “…… Alright…… here we go. One, two……”

[YUZUKI]: “Wait a mi–!?”

[TOSHIIE]: “THREE! Kgh, gugh!”

[YUZUKI]: “What are you doing!? Pulling out an arrow yourself……!”

[TOSHIIE]: “But if it’s not pulled then we can’t stop the bleeding.”

Toshiie-san pulled out the remaining two arrows like that without stopping.

[TOSHIIE]: “Ngh…… Uagh!!”

At any rate, I started to hold down on his wounds to stop the bleeding but the blood that poured out steadily dyed Toshiie-san’s clothes red.

[TOSHIIE]: “…… Hah…… this is really rough……”

[YUZUKI]: “…… I had just told you not to overdo it too……”

[TOSHIIE]: “Haha… that’s true. My bad, I’ll be careful next time. I promise.”

[YUZUKI]: “Toshiie-san……”

[YUZUKI]: “Um…… please drink my blood. If you do that, then those wounds should heal.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Aah–…… I’m grateful for your feelings, but, I’ll pass on that.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh, but……”

[TOSHIIE]: “Maybe it’s the blood loss, but right now it’s bad enough that I feel like I’m gonna lose my mind.”

[TOSHIIE]: “If I drink your blood, I might not be able to stop myself and I’ll tear you apart.”

[YUZUKI]: (That’s……)

[TOSHIIE]: “…… Anyway, that’s how it is. Sorry for making you worry.”

[TOSHIIE]: “But I’m okay, so let’s think of a way to run back to the Toyotomi territory right now.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay……”

[TOSHIIE]: “…… When it comes to opponents though, Nagahide really is a problematic one.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Geez…… it was unexpected that he’d come out here.”

[YUZUKI]: “Nagahide…… he’s that person who was leading that Oda Army back there, right? Who exactly is he?”

[YUZUKI]: “He talked like something happened between him and you, Toshiie-san……”

[TOSHIIE]: “That’s… well, I guess it’s not hidden…”

[TOSHIIE]: “Me and Hideyoshi, we were originally with Nobunaga and the others. So…… well, there’s a lot of acquaintances in the Oda Army.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha!? But right now you’re enemies, right……?”

[TOSHIIE]: “Aah, well, in other words, to put it simply, us Toyotomi people broke away from Oda to be independent. S’that kinda feeling.”

[YUZUKI]: “Broke away…… Why……?”

[TOSHIIE]: “The reason was…… well, a lot of things, but number one was–“

[NAGAHIDE]: “What, after a game of tag it’s hide and seek now, Toshiie?”

[TOSHIIE]: “……! Nagahide……”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Surround them. This time don’t let them get away.”

[ODA SOLDIER]: “My lord.”

[TOSHIIE]: “…… You’ve got quite the nose, don’t ya.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Hmph. You’re just bad at hiding, you imbecile-who-won’t-die.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Hah, you sure you want to test whether I’m an imbecile who won’t die?”

[YUZUKI]: “You can’t possibly be thinking about fighting!? With that body……!”

[TOSHIIE]: “You stand back. Absolutely don’t come out…… Got it?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “What’s wrong? If we’re going to fight, then hurry up and come!”

[TOSHIIE]: “Here I come……!!”

[YUZUKI]: (What do I do…… at this rate Toshiie-san will……!)

    Nagahide, never have I been so mad reading a chapter when you cock-blocked the past! xD

    Toshiie: “Well, a lot of things, but number one was-”
    Nagahide: “FOUND YOU! Stop the flashback and fight me!”
    Yuzuki: “I definitely won’t ask later today what was Toshiie about to say, ’cause I’m not curious one bit and just gonna wait patiently the next days as someone hopefully will bring it up again themselves~”

    Also, pfffth, I didn’t know there are limited replies one can give xD So I just skipped to the newest translation; here, to answer your reply in “Oda 5.5” =)

    Your list is SO close with mine! ^.^ but mine is gonna be so blurred with the order since there’s sooo many characters I really don’t know too well yet. The best ways I get to know is by your translations and anime =D Though there are some definite biases confirmed for me.

    I noticed all your last ones are shotas/teens, if the clan has one, except for Toyotomi.
    The same thing here xDD
    They’re just not my type at all (shotas), even though of course I can still love a character without needing to feel any romantic feelings, of course!
    Good example is few guys from Sanada when I got to know them =) even though the first time I saw them I was like “Shota clan?? No thanks..!” but yesh now they’re so lovely family-like bunch of furballs xD
    (and I have the urge to draw them full-grown long hair ikemen, yes….Well, long hair not necessary, but it’s my greatest weak spot..~ )

    And yes; the same with me; that I like all the clans and these characters are gonna be extremely close to each other, even more because I yet don’t know many so well, so this list might change after I’ve had all the info ^^ we’ll see, we’ll see.

    1. Oda: Exact same ^^
    2. Toyotomi: Hideyoshi > Kanbee > Mitsunari = Toshiie > Hanbee
    3. Uesugi: Exact same, except dunno if Kenshin or Kagemochi the 1st~
    4. Shingen: Shingen > Masanobu > Masatoyo > Nobuharu > Masakage
    5. Sanada: Sasuke = Saizou > Yukimura > Nobuyuki > Kumanosuke (really hard for me to choose
    between Sasuke or Saizou ’cause it’s the best when they’re together xD )
    6. Date: Last one at the moment ’cause I don’t know really anything about them,
    so the order will be more how curious I am of this character. And how sexy xD
    Date > Kojuurou > Shizegane.

    And with the knowledge I have of them for now, the biases would beee…
    Nobunaga, Hideyoshi, Kanbee, Kagemochi, Shingen. Not in any order ^^

    Noooow, kukuku, next questions, if you’re up for it >:D which guys have the best awakening forms?
    Also, you happen to have any OTPs? Either do you prefer any particular to Yuzuki, or some
    guy to another guy? =)

      I’M CRYING AT YOUR SCRIPT OF WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN!! But yes that’s certainly true it all gets kinda brushed aside in all the excitement LOL don’t worry though we get to learn all about what happened in the past in CH7 of Oda and Toyotomi ;D we’ll get both sides of the event too.

      Oh, sorry, it’s the way my WP is set up :( I only allow nested comments 3 levels deep so that comments don’t become squished to the side. All you need to do is just hit the last reply button and it’ll slot your comment below the other ones. That’s not very apparent though so don’t worry about making new comments or anything |D.

      Ooh, I’m excited to see if your list will change the more you get to know these guys then! LOL yeah I can see from your list that we seem to share a lot of the same tastes in men |D;; I do have a few that I like a lot but don’t see in a romantic light, for example Toshiie and Katsuie. They’re really fun guys but I treat them more like extremely reckless friends that need someone to mother-hen them, haha.

      Haha I’ll never forget these meme I saw on the Japanese side for senbura where someone posted impressions of every clan summarized and Sanada was Nobuyuki being the “mom” and everyone else being the “kids”. Good point about Sasuke and Saizou being paired though since it’s their interactions together that cracks me up the most.

      :’)) Those are some nice biases! I’ve been working slowly on all of Nobunaga’s interaction scenes so those might be coming out soon too after these blocks of Toyotomi chapters.

      Oh, by the way, a friend after seeing my list made me do an individual list and mine ended up looking like this:

      Hideyoshi > Nobunaga = Kenshin = Shingen > Kojuurou = Masanobu = Kagemochi > Mitsuhide = Nagahide = Kanbee > Katsuie = Toshiie = Sasuke = Masamune > Ranmaru = Yukimura = Kageie = Nobuharu = Masatoyo = Masakage > Nobuyuki > Saizou > Shigezane > Hanbee = Mitsunari = Kamanosuke = Kagekatsu = Kanetsugu

      Kinda messy to read but LOL looking at this it reveals just how much I like men in power OOPS. My personal preference is men like Hideyoshi, Kojuurou, Masanobu, and Kagemochi. Either playful teasers or high EQ and accustomed to women. But the leadership aura around Nobunaga, Kenshin, and Shingen and their stories which revolves around that is just *clenches fist* so good.

      Oh man, you’re giving me such hard questions to make decisions on LOL. Umm, best awakening forms would be… Mitsuhide (HE’S SO PRETTY), Hideyoshi (I prefer silver over gold and his blond hair + aqua eyes are !!), Kanbee (GODS HE’S GORGEOUS IN BOTH FORMS??), Kojuurou, Masamune, Masanobu (YES GOODBYE TO YOUR DUMB SOCCER MOM VISOR!!), and Hanbee (blood-red hair is so eye-catching and he reminds me of Beniyuri from Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly).

      OTPs… oh dear. Yuzuki/Hideyoshi is nice because I love how she tries to be just as clever as him in Toyotomi’s route. Yuzuki/Kenshin because it forces Kenshin to struggle with his principles, muahaha. Yuzuki/Shingen because *clenches hand* they’re just so??? supportive of each other??.

      I don’t really ship any of the guys together romantically but *sweats* there was this one card story that made me look at Nagahide and Ranmaru because Nagahide is actually kinda protective over Ranmaru despite how cold and blunt he seems. And, well, you can’t spell Kanbee without Hanbee (and vice versa– //bricked).

      Non-romantically I find Kagemochi and Kageie’s relationship to be hilarious because Kageie freaks out about girls and tries to get Kagemochi to help him and Kagemochi is just a big troll and is rolling his eyes all the time. Shingen and Nobuharu are nice too because Nobuharu is around Shingen’s age + experienced so one of the few people whose advice Shingen will take seriously and even ask for.

      Even though I joke about Sanada being a family and stuff too, the true clan that is ALL ABOUT FAMILY (AND OHANA MEANS FAMILY. FAMILY MEANS NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND!!) is the Date clan. I love how they interact with each other and once Yuzuki gets added in ;w; MY HEART FOR THIS SMALL FAMILY. Please keep them safe because Masamune has a burning ambition that won’t stop!

        (sorry cutting in the favorite guys discussion)
        is sad you rank Kagekatsu so low. he’s my son (besides Katsuie & Juuzo)!
        totally agree w Masanobu’s awakened form. I truly hate that visor thing!! (I’m waiting for you to translate his awakening scene bc I wanna know if it’s as sexy as I understand it unaided)
        YES Kageie and Kagemochi interactions!!! the chapter when Kageie sneaking behind Kagemochi and Yuzuki while shopping is clearly one of the best yet.

        Ohhh, believe me, I was crying too. Tears of despair..xD Hehe yessh, I shall wait in great eager ^^ the number 1 thing I most wanna know of Senbura really is these 2 things: Why and how Mitsuhide betrayed, and why Hideyoshi left. Exciteeeed…

        Aaah, I see! That actually is really logical, hah thanks ^^

        Oh yesh yesh, I can get that =D I’m really 50-50 ’cause I really love those fun-loving guys too, but depends so much how they’re done. I see Katsuie romantically, but Toshiie is a harder for me, mm…(his awakening form though…<3)

        Haha, awwh! Well that's so true, poor Nobuyuki the single mom just trying to keep the house in order xD what the other impressions were?? Really curious ^^

        That's how they are ^^ and yeah actually me too, 'cause there have been already some major changes xD the best example: when I first saw Hideyoshi…..I wasn't interested at all.
        I KNOW, can you believe it?! It's once again the fact that he has bigger eyes and is a bit shorter. (I usually only have hots for the guys like Nobunaga; mature-looking young adult, narrow eyes, long hair, tall body, not too buff nor lanky, but just the right amount of muscles.) and Hideyoshi definitely was a lost cause for me with his appearance.
        And then…I got to know his personality, the way he talks and acts and sounds, and I completely fell for the troller xD <3 so risen from the bottom to the top is a big change! THIS is why it's important to somehow get to know the character, that's why I'm so happy I can read these translations and actually get a good picture how the character interacts xD ^^ (has happened vice versa too: the guy is so fukin' hot but his personality sucks so much that I just lost all sexual tension.)
        Oohh and can't wait for them Nobunaga's interactions… Mitsunari > Kageie = Masatoyo > Toshiie = Nobuharu
        Last level: Sasuke = Saizou > Yukimura > Masamune > Hanbee > Ranmaru = Nobuyuki = Kojuro >
        Kagekatsu = Kanetsugu > Masakage > Shigezane = Kamanosuke

        Can’t blame you, as you can see, I like the alphas too xD Hee, what’s my personal preference, mm…There have been so different types, but mostly it’s been ironically these two polar opposites; cool, possibly a bit cruel (or trying to be) tsundere and/or kuudere types. And then those fun-loving, relaxed and “hero”-like guys. Not that I seek a knight in shining armour though at all, it’s more like…certain level of honour, like sparing even an enemy’s life if he’s already hurt and the duel wouldn’t be fair that way, or something like that xD
        I also do love those smooth, teasing seducers, but for now they’ve been really 50-50 when the person truly has either been a hot, caring type who has never truly fallen in love before the MC .<), Mitsunari, Masatoyo (I mean from this boring, plain short brown-hair to this kitsune-like long blonde ajshajfge, what is WITH this guy, there's this hidden mystery in him), Kagekatsu (it's ILLEGAL to be one of my least favs for now and yet look so amazing with his long, mintgreen hair, nooooh!)

        I see, I see ^^ it's been hard for me to decide Yuzuki to anyone yet because, well, haven't seen yet so many interactions, but I must say that Toyotomi chaps and anime has me interested in Hideyoshi/Yuzuki xD the only problem I have with that though, and it's a BIG one for my personal taste, is that I don't like those old disney-like "fallen in love within a day" 'cause I LOVE the slowpaced romance when the charas get to know one another and let the tension build up ^^ that's romance for me, not the "Instant I saw you I knew you're the one for me, let's get married right now", just blah, it's boring. In real life it would be great to just know your soulmate by looking, but in fiction it's just nope for me xD but I DO love seeing how obsessive Hideyoshi is in anime xD the way he said "Hee, ayashinaa~" to Masakage, and then in ep. 4 the threats to Yukimaru LOL, just amazing xD <3.
        As for the guys, well…Nothing is set in stone since I want to get to know them better xD but I got some feelings for Nobunaga/Mitsuhide, Katsuie/Nagahide, Saizou/Sasuke and Kenshin/Shingen (because enemies to friends/lovers is my other great weak spot <3 xD)
        though must admit that Kanbee and Hanbee would also be just perfect xD

        Ooh, now I'm really curious about that friendship though, can't wait to read about that, sounds so funny xD I did laugh my pants off in your twitter for that picture when Kageie bursts into Kagemochi's room all "I'M HOPELESS!" and DAT FACE of Kagemochi's xDDD <3

        Ah I knew it!! That's why I figured maybe Date's your fav clan 'cause I've read your family-love-Date thing xD It's just so weird why there's three…Why, why not five, why oh why?? Out of ideas? xD but can't wait to get that interaction ^^

        @garden: No worries, the more the merrier :D! Ahaha, I’m sorry I’m just really bad with people who speak slow and/or are timid. So whenever I listen to Kagekatsu and Juuzou talk I get so impatient. I still like them though! At this point the only person I really dislike in all 30 characters now is… Kanetsugu, oops. But it’s just on the level of grudging acceptance.

        (I can’t wait to get to more awakening scenes too but I feel like I need to provide more background behind the characters before I do them, so I’m waiting until I do some of their army chapters. Masanobu’s is REALLY REALLY sexy though LOL so you’re on the right track).

        @Yoru: Let’s see… Oda, Toyotomi, Uesugi, and Takeda impressions were…

        Oda = LOVE NOBUNAGA-SAMA CLUB!! (Person comments on Mitsuhide being quiet, Ranmaru’s asks if you thought he was tsun because he’s dere!!, Nobunaga is STRONG, Nagahide’s is about how much he loves rice, Katsuie’s is about how passionate he is but also easy-to-cry)

        Toyotomi = EXTREME FREEDOM!! (Kanbee is quiet but his stories are sexy/perverted and Hanbee is cute; these two get along well. Hideyoshi has his quote about becoming his bride with the comment UNFAIR!!, Toshiie’s is just yelling, and I can’t read Mitsunari’s unfortunately. BTW Mitsunari has an exasperated arrow at Toshiie and loves Hideyoshi while Hideyoshi’s arrow is like “now, now, now”)

        Uesugi = amazing sex appeal (LOL. Kagemochi is PERVERTED, Kageie is socially awkward, Kenshin’s is that he has a nice smell (?? LOL) and I can’t really read the writing but something about how it’s sad he’s something-heavenly and that the person believes it now, they just have a cute face for Kagekatsu, and can’t read Kanetsugu’s but it has something about mutual rejection)

        Takeda = MANLY!!!! (I can’t read most of their writing oops but Shingen is painful with a crying face and has the label HANDSOME MAN, Masanobu has lady-killer, and Masakage has the person squealing over him being a puppy)

        Lastly Sanada and Date impressions are…

        Sanada = Mama and babies LOL. (Yukimura is the baby that runs quickly, Kamanosuke is the baby that sleeps, and Sasuke and Saizou are the babies that fight at the smallest of things).

        Date = VERY FAMILY (Masamune is an angel, loves cooking (unfair), and an extreme tsundere. Shigezane is a baby and Kojuurou is an extreme mom who is always chasing after Shigezane. And in the middle it says their trust is basically unbreakable).

        LOL I didn’t think much about Hideyoshi at all since he seemed too playful and young but then oh MAN the voice drops… they did me in. And the ruthlessness hidden behind his smiles. Ahaha, for sure about getting to know the character. I didn’t think much about Kagemochi or Masanobu’s design but now I’m screaming over them. Meanwhile Kanetsugu looks cute because of his black-tipped ears but his personality… ack.

        Oh dear, going from your personal preference I think you’re going to die to Kenshin because he ticks ALL of those off. He’s cool, kuudere, but when he’s sweet he is PDA-levels of “I don’t care who is around I’m going to hug you and kiss you” and he’s super super super honorful.

        I think I know what you mean about the playful seducers. I don’t actually like playboys but more like, hm, mature men who don’t fluster easily (?) and instead love to fluster you LOL. Bonus points if they’re the types to hide their pain behind a smile. There was a limited event gacha that had Kojuurou, Kagemochi, Mitsuhide, and Masanobu in there and they were all people who “lived in the dark to make the army shine”. Totally not a coincidence they’re up there in my favorites, oops.

        What I really like about Hideyoshi still so far is that he keeps saying all these things about liking her and wanting to marry her but because it’s so hard to read him it makes you really nervous about trusting what he says. I mean when he first met her and was making flippant comments about bringing her to battle cause she’s a girl and it’ll be interesting… he ends up confessing that he thought she was a girl who couldn’t do anything and he’s impressed now. So, like, I actually don’t believe he is “in love” with her but he sees it as a funny way to get her to stay with him because she’s useful. Like fake it ’till you make it? He seems the type to use whatever it takes to get what he wan– wait, shit, HE LITERALLY SAID THAT LOL. Marriage of convenience definitely falls into that, but women love romance so he might as well play along. (Though of course I think he’s actually starting to genuinely like her more and more).

        ENEMIES TO LOVERS. YES!! Haha Kenshin and Shingen are too much bros for me to ship them but I can totally see where you’re coming from with that! Poor Shingen though about how much Kenshin just kinda ignores him.

        Kageie is hopeless |D;; everything he does and thinks. At one point, like Garden mentioned, he sneaks behind Kagemochi and Yuzuki while they’re shopping because he’s “keeping an eye” on her. And he also comes under the impression that Yuzuki and Kagemochi are “together” and tries to matchmake them… really badly LOL.

        I have to admit that I’m not very knowledgable on the Sengoku period (way more familiar with China’s Three Kingdoms if we’re talking historical ppl) but maybe the rest of the vassals from the Date clan aren’t as famous or known? :( A major part about liking Date is actually just Kojuurou’s voice– //bricked. But yeah all the armies are close in terms of stories and characters as I got to know them more.

        PS. I think some of your comment might have been cut off because WP thinks people are using HTML when they close brackets with >< (reversed) T__T so gotta be careful with that.

    Oh I was expecting Nagahide to kidnap her or something. Oh I’m so curious about what is going to happen next! Thank you so much for updating so quickly! I’m checking your page everyday! ^_^

      Haha, that would have been really exciting :’D! I was actually surprised and touched to hear how alarmed Nagahide sounded when he realized there was a woman; he sounded honestly shocked. But then later he doesn’t seem to care LOL probably because he realizes she’s the enemy.

      <3 thank you for commenting and reading!
