SNB Oda ~ Chapter 6.5 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 6: The Light that Leads to the World

At the end of discussions, she received permission to search for a sacred treasure, and headed to the actual place together with Nagahide.

Inside a cave and not knowing when they might encounter the Toyotomi Army… there they saw…!?

Chapter 6.5

[NOBUNAGA]: “–And, did you find the ‘mirror’ you were looking for?”

The next day after we returned from our sacred treasure search– everyone was gathered, and Nagahide-san and I reported our results.

[YUZUKI]: (Somehow…… it seems like Nobunaga-san is in a good mood?)

I was curious but I answered Nobunaga-san’s question.

[YUZUKI]: “…… There was no mirror in that cave.”

A mirror guarded by a dragon– its identity was not a sacred treasure of Himemiko-sama, but a beautiful spring overlooked by a large boulder shaped like a mirror.

[YUZUKI]: (Even though we received Nobunaga-san’s permission to search and Nagahide-san went through a terrible experience…… For this to be the result……)

As my shoulders slumped, unexpected words came flying out.

[KATSUIE]: “…… Wow, it’s exactly like Nobunaga-sama said.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh……? What do you mean exactly like he said?”

[RANMARU]: “Um…… I’m sorry.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “…… We knew there was no sacred treasure in that cave.”

[YUZUKI]: “W-Wait a minute, please. By “we” you mean……”

[KATSUIE]: “Ah… yeahhh, sorry.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… I also knew by hearing it from Nobunaga-sama. About the spring and the nest of yakuma too.”

[YUZUKI]: “You heard… When was that……”

[NAGAHIDE]: “After I reported my pursuit of Maeda Toshiie to Nobunaga-sama.”

[YUZUKI]: (Come to think of it, I was the only one sent back to my room then……)

[YUZUKI]: “But…… if you knew that place was dangerous, why did you let me and Nagahide-san go there……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “To obtain a sacred treasure in the real sense…… No, perhaps saying “in order to awaken it” would be more correct.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Awaken… the sacred treasure?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “The knife you were awarded by Nobunaga-sama. That was the sacred treasure.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha… WHAA!?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “I’ve said it many times. There is no need to go and search.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “The case this time was to drive you to a wall and aim to awaken the sacred treasure you were granted–“

[NOBUNAGA]: You have a blood that is similar to Himemiko. And so I thought you would be able to handle the sacred treasure passed down through the Oda clan.”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah!! So, when you talked about ascertaining my suitability……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “The training given to you by Mitsuhide and the others, everything was for this purpose.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “If you were given that knife without care, it would be a problem if you committed suicide. I had to observe a human like you first.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “You didn’t admit defeat to Mitsuhide and Katsuie and the others’ training. Furthermore, you showed a strong spirit when you fought against the thieves. That is why I gave the sacred treasure to you, however……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “You neither tested it out nor did you draw it from its sheath.”

[YUZUKI]: (That’s the reason why he talked about the knife when I was called to his room that time……)

[YUZUKI]: “So, to create an occasion you had me go search for the sacred treasure?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Exactly…… Well, there was a possibility the problem was not with you and that the knife itself was sealed somehow. –As I thought, there is nothing wrong with my judgment.”

[YUZUKI]: “But if I didn’t say I wanted to investigate the cave then… ah, no… nevermind.”

[YUZUKI]: (Because it’s him, it’s obvious he’d lead me to say I wanted to go somehow.)

[NOBUNAGA]: “Heh. I see you finally understand as well.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… That’s mean! Do you know what Nagahide-san went through because of that……!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “In an emergency, it was planned for Mitsuhide to enter and help.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…… No way…… Mitsuhide-san, you were with us at the time!?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “At that time, you say…… But I was following you two with soldiers ever since you two left the castle.”

[YUZUKI]: Whaa!?”

[YUZUKI]: (I-It really was just me who didn’t know anything, caused a big fuss, then cried loudly…… Uugh…… how embarrassing……)

When I lowered my head to hide my burning face–

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… Oi, Yuzuki.”

[YUZUKI]: “–Ah, yes!”

[YUZUKI]: (Just now…… he called my name for the first time……)

While my head was thrown into a panic of surprise and happiness, I somehow listened to Nobunaga-san’s words.

[NOBUNAGA]: “In this one case, you succeeded in awakening the sacred treasure. Thank you for your and Nagahide’s services.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “A reward has been prepared corresponding to your work. At this time, it is being carried to your room. Confirm that later.”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-Yes! Thank you very much.”

[YUZUKI]: (I was tricked and went through a terrifying experience, and yet……… I wonder why I’m this happy.)

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… Come here.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes.”

I stepped up to him nervously and, when I kneeled down, my face was lifted as if he stroked my cheek.

Nobunaga-san’s sharp eyes looked directly at me. But strangely today I didn’t feel any fear.

[NOBUNAGA]: “Who is your lord?”

[YUZUKI]: “…… You, Nobunaga-san.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Correct. The one to devote your loyalty and blood to is I, Oda Nobunaga. Never forget that and be diligent.”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-Yes.”

Nobunaga-san appeared to be satisfied with that and left the room.

[RANMARU]: “Thank you for all your hard work this time.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “You must still be tired, are you not? Please take it easy and rest.”

[KATSUIE]: “Nagahide, you too, don’t overdo it. Your wounds haven’t healed yet.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “You don’t have to tell me that, I’m going to fully enjoy a life of sleeping.”

[RANMARU]: “At least call it recuperating.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Hmph.”

[YUZUKI]: “Um…… Nagahide-san. Thank you so much this time.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “…… It was nothing. I was just obeying Nobunaga-sama’s order.”

[KATSUIE]: “Oh? What’s this Nagahide, isn’t it unusual for you to be embarrassed?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Wha!? I’m not embarrassed!”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Ah, you mustn’t do that, Nagahide! You have to keep still!”

[YUZUKI]: “Haha.”

[YUZUKI]: (A lot of hard and scary things happened but…… I found the sacred treasure and everyone’s here.)

[YUZUKI]: (That reminds me, what’s the reward that Nobunaga-san prepared? I hope it isn’t a weapon.)

Feeling slightly excited, I returned to my own room.

      Ehehehe, Nobunaga likes to the play the long con. My mouth dropped open here when I read this for the first time too though, don’t worry. I WAS SO EMBARRASSED WHEN I REACTED LIKE THE MC and accepted Nobunaga’s words about abandoning her as him being cruel enough to do that. But it was all a bluff and Nagahide being like “you’re dumb for swallowing that without thought” made me want to hide in a hole and apologize for doubting the Oda gang (their ruthless villain aura is too strong).

    Ah this explains the coldness..I think xD. It was definitely a bit jarring, but I guess it was to awaken the blade and it couldn’t be helped~ even so, we get that rare flustered look from Nagahide. Cheers~ Thanks for the chapter!

      From the very beginning, Nobunaga has been moving people around like chess pieces :’)) almost as scary as Hideyoshi’s ruthless manipulations except Nobunaga never gives off the impression of being your friend and so you kind of expect him to do stuff like this (while Hideyoshi’s comes out of your blind spot, aha). NOBUNAGA HAS SUCH A BAD HABIT OF NOT TELLING ANYONE HIS PLANS THOUGH LIKE THIS!

      I still think there’s a grain of truth in that they’re willing to be brutal for this objective, but they’ll do their best to try and keep MC safe as long as it’s within reason ;;;; but maybe I’m just super suspicious and jaded of them now after this trick LOL. On one hand, MC’s value is priceless because she’s the key to Himemiko, but on the other hand… it would be devastating if she were to fall into another army who would use her. Hrm hrm, Oda army is too scary sometimes, haha.

      Haha, yeah!! I’ve completely lost track of whose blushing faces I have so I’m just making it a rule to get any blush I see LOL. Thanks for commenting and <3 hope you enjoyed catching up, haha.

    “Wha… WHAA!?” exactly my thought when I first read this chapter. it would be sooooo much easier if Nobunaga just explained to her what he knew of the treasure beforehand. but I understand why he didn’t. although pretty mean but at least he did it with complete confidence that Yuzuki will prove herself. she’s such a strong MC, I love her<3

    I really wished the anime used Oda storyline instead. I find it much more interesting than Toyotomi's, but not on a large margin btw.

      SAME about the MC ;w; I love how resilient she is and how she adapts to the different groups. Nobunaga seems like a chess mastermind, haha, with the way he manipulates events to his liking. I find it interesting that only Nobunaga’s sacred treasure required “awakening” while in all the other groups, they activated just from touch. But yeah, you’d think he could have just had her pull out the knife to try and if it didn’t activate then, then you could throw her into the pool and watch her sink or swim–

      Haha, I’m torn because Oda is coded so villainous (especially with Nobunaga’s character) that it’d be really interesting if they used Oda’s story line but then it might have made the anime lack a “clear” antagonist (though you could argue the grayness of everyone fighting for their own beliefs would be a compelling story too). Tbh, if I were to choose I might have chosen Uesugi as the main story because it’s so dramatic and Kenshin is such a prince LOL. There’s a reason they novelized Uesugi’s route!!

        “Kenshin is such a prince” YES EXACTLY! originally I liked Uesugi group better all because it has most of my fav voice talents (I will die for Okitsu and Toriumi.. well actually I like Okitsu bc Yotsuya Cider *laughing nervously*) but the fraction that I understand unaided of Uesugi route is very dramatic. the whole thing with MC trying to run away is one of my favorite so far because of Kenshin’s reaction<3

        novelized??!! oh no this is the first time I'm hearing this! where can I get more info about this?

        *waggles eyebrows* I see now. I gotta admit I first got into this game and chose Date as my main group because of Satou Takuya… (but more like Atsu Domon LOL). I have a perpetual fear that the 7th army with the horned boys is gonna rope in my two other favorite seiyuu, Furukawa Makoto and Nakazawa Masatomo and I’m going to have to cry into my wallet.

        I can’t find the page I used to use to check up on all the goods they were selling but here’s one with the manga (on Toyotomi route which ended on a brutal cliffhanger oh GOD POOR HIDEYOSHI) and the novel (of the Uesugi route).

        can’t reply to your reply for below so I’m just gonna leave this here;

        thanks for the link!
        I’m crossing my fingers for at least Hirakawa or Shimono, however unlikely it is, for the ‘demon’ tribe.

        (yessss Domon. my kokoro is weak against him. I saw your tweet the other day for your purchase of sins (lol) and I just wanna say, you have good taste, my friend!)
