SNB Toyotomi ~ Chapter 6.5 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 6: Two-Faced

The commanders started searching for the “sacred treasure” written in the scroll obtained at Nobunaga’s castle, and which might be a clue to Himemiko.

However, Hideyoshi seemed to be pondering over something…?

Chapter 6.5

The mirror, which had been taken out of the warehouse, had a dignified atmosphere under the light of the sun.

[YUZUKI]: “This is Himemiko-sama’s sacred treasure, huh……”

[HANBEE]: “It’s the same as the one drawn in the scroll.”

[KANBEE]: “Hm…… judging from appearances, it does not look any different from a normal mirror. Even if you touch it directly, there is no sense of mysterious power.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Kanbee, hand it over here for a sec.”

Toshiie-san, who received the mirror from Kanbee-san, looked at it and turned it round and round.

[TOSHIIE]: “Hrrrrrmm…… no matter how you look at it, it just looks like a mirror. Hey, is this really Himemiko’s sacred treasure?”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh? What do you mean?”

[TOSHIIE]: “Well, for a sacred treasure to just be a mirror, is a let-down in the end, isn’t it?”

[HANBEE]: “Ehhh~, but this was a document that was kept in Oda Nobunaga’s personal room, you know? I don’t think it would be fake information~.”

[MITSUNARI]: “Be that as it may, the letters on the scroll were blurred, so there may be some truth to what Toshiie has said……”

[MITSUNARI]: “For argument’s sake, even if the scroll’s information was true, we cannot cast aside the possibility that this mirror was created to imitate a sacred treasure.”

[YUZUKI]: “B-But there’s a possibility that it could be the real thing, right?”

[MITSUNARI]: “Of course. To reach a conclusion, we should conduct a more solid examination.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Alrighty, then let’s try hitting it with a rock!”

[YUZUKI]: “Whaa!?”

[MITSUNARI]: “…… Toshiie, are you even listening to what people are saying?”

[TOSHIIE]: “Well, I mean, an examination is gonna go at a snail’s pace, yeah?”

[KANBEE]: “…… Hm, certainly, if we were to consider the situation of this one being a fake, then I understand your insistence on wanting to quicken the conclusion.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Right? If this was the real sacred treasure, then it wouldn’t break so easily–right!”

Toshiie-san picked up the mirror with one hand casually and threw it as hard as he could, aiming at a rock in the courtyard.

[MITSUNARI]: “Wha!?”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh!?”

In front of my eyes, the mirror broke all too soon.

[YUZUKI]: (That’s…… no way…… it really broke……)

I staggered over to the broken mirror and picked up its fragments. The mirror surface glittered, reflecting the sun’s light.

[MITSUNARI]: “What have you done……!”

[TOSHIIE]: “Um, this sort of thing, it’s best to have it cleared up quickly, aha ha ha…”

[MITSUNARI]: “Are you an idiot! There’s a possibility you broke the real thing, you know!?”

[TOSHIIE]: “What’re you talking about. There’s no way a sacred treasure would be this breakable.”

[MITSUNARI]: “Aa, good grief! That’s why I’ve said you have an empty head!”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Now, now, now, calm down you two.”

Hideyoshi-san entered between Toshiie-san and Mitsunari-san and then sighed with a look that seemed troubled somewhere.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Geez…… this really wasn’t the plan but Toshiie’s decisiveness can be really shocking.”

As he mumbled like he was talking to himself, Hideyoshi-san reached a hand into his breast pocket.

[YUZUKI]: “Hideyoshi-san……?”

Hideyoshi-san looked at me and smiled widely as if in answer to my call–

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Ta daaaah! What do you think this is?”

He took out a mirror, the same as the one which just broke.

[YUZUKI]: “–Whaaaaa!?”

[MITSUNARI]: “N-No way, Hideyoshi-sama……”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “You guessed it! This is the real sacred treasure of Himemiko.”

[HANBEE]: “Huh~!? That’s mean of you to hide it~.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Ahaha, sorry, sorry. Honestly, I was thinking about pulling it out after Yuzuki committed to saying “I’m not going home”, you know.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “But because she looked like she was about to die just now, I had a guilty conscience.”

Hideyoshi-san smiled somewhat apologetically before he held out the mirror to me.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Sorry for doing something so cowardly.”

[YUZUKI]: “Hideyoshi-san……”

I accepted the mirror while looking at Hideyoshi-san’s sincere expression. In that instant–

A light suddenly poured out of the mirror surface.

[HANBEE]: “Wah……!? What’s with this light!”

[MITSUNARI]: “The light is stretching out like a single road……”

[KANBEE]: “What is this……”

[YUZUKI]: (…… What’s this feeling…… it’s like someone is calling me……?)

My heart thudded loudly. An unspeakable emotion swirled in my chest and, before I noticed, I spoke that name.

[YUZUKI]: “–It’s Himemiko-sama……”

[HANBEE]: “Huh?”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah…… no, um…… I feel like the light is pointing in the direction where Himemiko-sama is……”

[TOSHIIE]: “H-Hey! How do you know that?”

[YUZUKI]: “I-I don’t even really know myself…… It’s really just a feeling somehow……”

[MITSUNARI]: “You have no basis for–“

[HIDEYOSHI]: “No, I believe those words.”

Amongst everyone’s confusion, including me, only Hideyoshi-san declared that in a strong tone.

[YUZUKI]: “W-Why……? I can’t even give a reason or a good explanation……”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Because my future wife said so. Isn’t that reason enough?”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh……”

[HANBEE]: “Huh~, but because it’s you, Hideyoshi-sama, you must have another reason, right~?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Ahaha, you’re sharp, Hanbee. My reason is, well, a lot of things…… yeah?”

[YUZUKI]: “A-A lot of things……”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Don’t sweat the small stuff! But the reason I gave earlier isn’t a lie.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “As long as it’s your words, I might believe any kind of nonsense, you know?”

After he gave me a grin where I couldn’t tell if he was lying or speaking the truth, Hideyoshi-san turned towards everyone immediately.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Anyway, we don’t have any other clues, so let’s believe in that feeling for now!”

[TOSHIIE]: “So, in other words……?”

[HANBEE]: “We set out in the direction pointed to by the light–!…… or something like that, right!”

[KANBEE]: “It appears we are one step closer to our goal.”

[YUZUKI]: (I see…… we might be able to finally find Himemiko-sama……!)

At this real feeling that suddenly appeared late, my cheeks relaxed unconsciously.

But, in contrast to my feelings, Hideyoshi-san and the others had expressions that were somewhat stiff.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “…… Of all things, it had to be in that direction, huh.”

[MITSUNARI]: “Indeed……”

[YUZUKI]: “Um…… is there something to worry about?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Where do you think the sacred treasure pointed to?”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh?…… Ah! Could it be–“

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Yes. Over there is our longstanding enemy– Oda Nobunaga’s territory.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Aw man…… didn’t we just go over there?”

[MITSUNARI]: “Yes. However, this is incomparable to the time we sneaked in a few days ago. If we are going to search for Himemiko like this–“

[HIDEYOSHI]: “It’ll be a frontal collision with the Oda Army led by that Demon King, huh.”

[YUZUKI]: (T-That means…… we’ll be fighting the Oda Army again–!?)

The presence of a turbulent conflict had crept up to us without a sound–.

    In all Toshiie’s reckless act, how it turn out to be great that make you drop your jaw 😲 and Hideyoshi can predict it 😅

    Hideyoshi is now a masochist here, try to be cheerful even though he was hurt inside 😢

      First time I read this I wanted to strangle Toshiie or at least grab him by the shoulders and shake him and be like “YOU RECKLESS IDIOT” like Mitsunari LMAO. It really was too crazy to do that sort of move when you don’t exactly know what a sacred treasure is. For all anyone knows, maybe they really are that fragile and so they had to be passed down through generations very very VERY carefully |D;;

      But Hideyoshi… yeah… I’m betting he had it since the beginning or when he told everyone that he remembered seeing it in the castle but not exactly where he was lying. He might have known exactly where it was and just let everyone search the castle while he went to grab it himself, and then he was planning on sitting on it until Yuzuki gave up on returning home.

      He might be really desperate at this point but still >:( he shouldn’t lie or deceive his comrades or the girl he likes like that!! Guess he’s never heard the saying of “if you love someone let them go” hahaha.

    Waah~~!It’s getting exciting.But why did I have to fall in love with Toshiie(and his hot scarred body)? Hideyoshi’s so sweet to say stuff like he’ll believe anything Yuzuki says but still it’s mean to assume that she wouldn’t want to go back to her own world <3 But That's just how our monkey is <3. Meanwhile I keep falling harder and harder for Toshiie and Katsuie for their hot af bodies,btw what do you think about them(Katsuie and Toshiie)? ^_^.Thank youuu so much for translating <3 <3,oh and have you wondered why in the anime's latest episode Yuzuki's in a forest and the guys(especially Hideyoshi) are not freaking out?She might fall into the hands of Oda Army!!

      Haha, there’s something really refreshing about how blunt and open Toshiie is |D;; I have to admit that he started off as the second last character I liked out of all 28 characters, but he’s been climbing the ranks really quickly as I go back through these stories and see more of him (in his card stories). He’s a reckless but adorable dummy ;w;/

      Hideyoshi is the epitome of sweet but with a dangerous underside, haha, you never really know what he’s thinking or planning and his admittance of being willing to do anything to get what he wants should make everyone’s alarm bells go off /o\. He is so shameless about letting everyone know just how important Yuzuki is to him though |D;; and that he’s willing to trust her on like anything.

      I like both Katsuie and Toshiie! Like I mentioned before, Toshiie started off low but he’s climbed up. Katsuie I’ve always enjoyed because very early on you learn that he’s not just all muscle and no brain |D;; he’s pretty clever himself (and I love that he’s so sensitive because it’s unexpected) but compared to people like Nagahide and Mitsuhide… well he’ll definitely get outshone in the thinking department. He’s great though and really considerate ;w; if you compare his awakening scene to Toshiie’s.

      Aww, you’re very welcome and thank you so much for reading these posts! I think Hideyoshi storming out of the conference room shows that he’s inwardly freaking out but there’s nothing they can do at the moment because they don’t know exactly where she is and they’ve suffered major damage from the all-out war that just happened LOL. My bet is that we’re going to do more musical chairs because technically we haven’t had an episode with Uesugi, Date, or Oda alone with Yuzuki like how she met the Takeda and Sanada armies. I’m also thinking Uesugi is gonna be the one to pick her up :3c.

        Toshiba LOL. I have to agree with Mitsunari here on Toshiie being a reckless idiot :’D what would everyone have done if that really was the real sacred treasure!? Thanks for commenting <3 we're gonna take a quick detour back to Oda again though.

    goddammit Toshiie you broke what might be the only mean for Yuzuki to go home!!! also, Hideyoshi, I think he’s planning to keep quiet about him having the real treasure from the get go. it’s a mean move but not something I don’t expect him to do. he did say he’d do anything to get what he want, and he clearly don’t want Yuzuki to go home.

    thank you again for the translation effort! are you planning to continue ch7 or go back to Oda side next? or start with other groups main story? whatever you decide, I’m gonna be happy with it anyway so take your time!

      I know the first time I read this I was as exasperated as Mitsunari was at Toshiie’s recklessness and lack of thought, but reading it over again (and slowly falling for Toshiie’s rough and tumble charm) I can kinda see his point like what Kanbee brought up. If this was a fake, why waste time with it? And would the real sacred treasure be so flimsy? But then again, ultimately, I’m still on Mitsunari’s side about being cautious because if it was the real one then you just screwed up big time LOL.

      Yeah… Hideyoshi… I love him so much but it’s things like this that make me really scared of him too. If he had planned to keep that a secret until he got Yuzuki to promise not to go home. That’s… literally blackmail and manipulation right there LOL. Scaaryy! But, like you said, it’s not unexpected for him to do that too and the fact that he’s willing to do that makes me like how sneakily brutal he is.

      You’re welcome <3 thanks for reading and commenting as always! I'm planning to go back to Oda's side and doing both versions of CH7 (Oda first because I feel like it reads better seeing their version before Toyotomi's version) since I know a lot of people have been waiting for the betrayal reveal LOL. Then we'll be all caught up and we can finally go to another main army.
