SNB Oda ~ Chapter 8.3 ~

Chapter 8: Hidden Fangs and the True Objective

The result of the meeting with Hideyoshi was a demand for an equal alliance with the Oda Army.

At a later date, Nobunaga and the others headed to the location to enter an alliance but, in the middle of that, a single gunshot rang……

Chapter 8.3

When I looked at Ranmaru who gave a shrill scream, I froze.

[YUZUKI]: “No way……”

Beside Ranmaru-kun was Nobunaga-san with a pained expression as his chest became stained dark red.

[NAGAHIDE]: “Nobunaga-sama!”

Getting off from his horse, Nagahide-san ran over hurriedly and caught Nobunaga-san in his arms as Nobunaga-san fell off from his horse.

He tried to treat the wound immediately but–

[BANDIT]: “NOW, EVERYONE ATTACK!”

[BANDIT]: “Aye aye!”

Suddenly crude men appeared. Seeing that they held matchlocks in their hands, Katsuie-san became enraged.

[KATSUIE]: “…… YOU BASTARDS HURT NOBUNAGA-SAMA!”

[BANDIT]: “Haha! Look at that guy. He’s jumping right into here all alone! Doesn’t he see the numbers on our side…… w-what!?”

[BANDIT]: “W-We’re… being cut down one after another……!? Y-You guys, hurry and shoot……!”

[KATSUIE]: “TOO SLOW!”

[BANDIT]: “GYAAAAAGH…!?”

In an instant, Katsuie-san killed those men.

[BANDIT]: “I-Is he a monster!? Everyone, aim at that guy’s ba…… argh?”

A man in the center tried to give instructions but he was interrupted halfway.

Because standing in front of him was Ranmaru-kun who pierced him with a blade.

[RANMARU]: “–Please do not think you will die an easy death.”

In this chaotic situation, Mitsuhide-san and I rushed quickly to Nobunaga-san who had been shot.

Mitsuhide-san worriedly asked a question to Nagahide-san who was doing medical treatment.

[MITSUHIDE]: “The bullet?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Pierced through.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “You’re lucky you weren’t riding behind him. If you were, things wouldn’t have ended well for you.”

[YUZUKI]: (T-That’s…… but if that were the case, was Nobunaga-san protecting me by telling me to change horses?)

When I thought that, Nobunaga-san sat up and showed a strained expression.

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… I barely managed to have it avoid my heart, but it struck a vital spot.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Nobunaga-sama, you mustn’t speak. It will aggravate your wound……!”

[YUZUKI]: (A ton of blood is pouring from the wound. At this rate, Nobunaga-san will……)

I rolled up my sleeve and held out my arm.

[YUZUKI]: “Um, please use my blood!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… Heh, it seems you understand your role.”

Nobunaga-san smiled thinly and pulled me into him a bit forcefully.

[YUZUKI]: “…… ah!”

Feeling my heart pound, a dull pain ran through my neck.

[YUZUKI]: “W-Why my neck……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… I won’t take your instructions. Be quiet.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… ngh.”

My arms were grabbed before I could resist and then my blood was sucked without my control.

[YUZUKI]: (…… My neck tingles……)

Unable to become used to the act of blood sucking, no matter how many times it happened, I twisted my body. However, Nobunaga-san continued with no regard to me.

As if he was quenching his thirst, the sound of him swallowing was long and slow–

And then the act was done.

Because more blood was drank than usual, I couldn’t move my body as I wanted……

[YUZUKI]: (Ah, my legs are trembling……)

When I seemed to collapse, Nobunaga-san gently held me.

[YUZUKI]: “Nobunaga-san……”

It seemed like his gunshot wound was sealed completely.

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… We’re heading to the meeting place.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “With that appearance!?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “It is a trifling matter. Now that this commotion has happened, Hideyoshi would notice sooner or later.”

Nobunaga-san said this and then sent a look my way.

[RANMARU]: “Nobunaga-sama!”

[YUZUKI]: (Ah, it’s Ranmaru-kun and Katsuie-san! I guess the battle is over already.)

[NOBUNAGA]: “Did you extract information from those bandits?”

[RANMARU]: “Yes! Their story was that a man in black suddenly came to them and handed them matchlocks and money.”

[RANMARU]: “He told them to attack the party that crossed the ridge.”

[KATSUIE]: “But those guys weren’t good at using matchlocks. They aren’t the ones who shot Nobunaga-sama.”

Hearing Katsuie-san’s words, a look of caution appeared in Nagahide-san’s eyes.

[NAGAHIDE]: “If it wasn’t them, then the one who fired was the man in black, hm.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “If that guy is someone in the Toyotomi Army……”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Toyotomi may not have the intention to tie an alliance.”

[YUZUKI]: (Then if we go to the meeting place……)

[YUZUKI]: “Nobunaga-san, are we really going?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Of course. It would be a pity to miss this opportunity.”

[YUZUKI]: (Opportunity… does he mean this chance? But if we’re ambushed it’ll be a bad situation……)

However, without clearing my uneasiness, the Oda Army arrived at the meeting place.

The commanders of Toyotomi were lined up before our eyes, and they turned looks of curiosity towards Nobunaga-san’s appearance. Although–

Nobunaga-san took one step forward with a nonchalant look and declared this imposingly.

[NOBUNAGA]: “–I’ve come, monkey.”

    Y:”Drink my blood! From my hand, please. I’m rolling up my sleeves for where you can bite. Drink from here.”
    N: “yeah no” *bites neck instead*

    lol.

    I love that it’s not Nagahide that goes after the bandits in a fury with Katsuie, but it’s Ranmaru. I really expected him to be at his dad’s side and cries or something. but then again, the anime has shown a glimpse of Ranmaru if he has a manic tendency. of course he’d be the second to lose his cool if anything happened to Nobunaga.

      I got chills down my spine when Ranmaru appeared and said that line because, now that I think about it, we don’t get to see Ranmaru doing much other than following Nobunaga around and making occasionally handling administrative duties in Mitsuhide’s absence (but Mitsuhide seems to pass the majority off to Nagahide). So to see Ranmaru actually be a wicked fighting in his own respect and so aggressively protective was, wow.

    “–I’ve come, monkey.” he says, waltzing into the unsuspecting camp looking as if a god has descended onto earth…//coughs. Excuse me ^^;; ~ While Hideyoshi’s was more serious (in my opinion), Oda’s…he handled everything way too well xD. Kinda makes you wonder why you ever feel worried in the first place haha~ Thanks for the chapter!

      I have to admit I still prefer Nobunaga’s normal looks over his awakening (the blond hair is just… hmm) but it’s super eye-catching! Apart from a few people, and armies *cough Sanada cough*, I’m impressed by how their awakening versions are really vibrant and like special looking compared to their normal appearance.

      Haha, this kinda makes me want to see Nobunaga sweat or be put in a situation where he does lose his cool or gets desperately worried over the heroine. Heck, in Toyotomi’s route Hideyoshi’s voice hurt me so much with how desperate and furious it was when he thought Nobunaga was going to do something to Yuzuki. But in both routes Nobunaga is just super chill LOL (even if he’s pretending it’s an impenetrable act).

    I thought it was going to be a serious chapter with the gunshot going off and all, but it managed to elicit a chuckle out of me lol. From Yuzuki going “Oh noes not again…” getting bitten on the neck is becoming a running gag (this being the third time I think) with Nobunaga going honey badger on her to him just casually waltzing into Toyotomi’s camp as his shiny self, basically going “Whassup”.

        Now that you mention it I don’t think she’s ever not been bitten on the neck so far… excluding awakening scenes. LMFAO I’m cracking up at your description of how the events went down but yep that’s pretty much how it’s going. Nobunaga has no cares to give about how Toyotomi sees him, other than becoming the eventual ruler of the country–

    Nobunaga is really sharp and becoming softy….. ♡⃛ɞ(ू•ᴗ•ू❁) but still doubting him even though he did that ^^’
    Of course when an emergency like this, an ANTIDOTE or ENERGY DRINK must require its presence XD

      Nobunaga is both hot and cold |D he really does talk like the MC is nothing but a tool to him and yet, like he said, he treats her very nicely. What is the truth!! Haha, or more like the better question is what are people willing to settle for ;D.

      Haha, it’s nice to see that when things get tough the heroine offers her blood up immediately. It’s a super health potion!
