SNB Oda ~ Chapter 8.5 ~

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 8.5

Immediately after the talks ended– a military force surged onto the plains at the same time as Mitsunari-san’s report.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “No way, that’s–!”

[YUZUKI]: (The color on Hideyoshi-san’s face changed…… does that mean they’re really difficult enemies?)

At the sudden change in situation, I noticed confusion and fear on the expression of the soldiers around us.

However, in the next moment–

[NOBUNAGA]: “–Everyone, listen!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “From here on we will be assisting Toyotomi as an allied army!”

Nobunaga-san pulled out his sword and when he shouted that in a loud voice the wavering soldiers changed their attitudes.

[KATSUIE]: “…… If that’s Nobunaga-sama’s orders then that’s how it is. ALL OF YOU, LET’S GO!”

[KATSUIE]: “There’s lots of foot soldiers! We’ll scatter them with the cavalry unit!”

When Katsuie-san was about to cut into the troops, a voice put a stop to him–

[TOSHIIE]: “Woah there! I’m not gonna let you overtake me!”

[KATSUIE]: “Hah!? Bastard, who are yo…… oh, if it isn’t Toshiie!”

[TOSHIIE]: “Before, you asked if I continued training, right? I’ll show you how much I’ve grown right here and now!”

[KATSUIE]: “You’re the same brat as usual, huh…… Guess there’s no choice, we’ll be covering Toshiie here!”

Katsuie-san’s unit tried to follow after Toshiie-san, who broke into the advance guard, but……

[NAGAHIDE]: “Oi, Katsuie! Don’t fool around and go around from the right side to gather the enemies in the center!”

[KATSUIE]: “Ggh…… Roger! –TOSHIIE! DON’T GET TOO RECKLESS!”

Nagahide-san stopped Katsuie-san who was getting heated. He looked over the battlefield calmly and then followed that by turning his gaze to Mitsunari-san.

[NAGAHIDE]: “Mitsunari. You have them, don’t you. A unit equipped with matchlocks. Hurry up and bring them out.”

[MITSUNARI]: “…… It is unavoidable, huh. Hanbee, I will lead the gun unit, so I’m leaving this place to you.”

[HANBEE]: “Okie dokie~!”

[HANBEE]: “Just a little bit more and I was going to come up with an interesting plan…… but right now I need to adapt to our allied army, huh.”

[HANBEE]: “Toshiie~! Go around from the left side~! Also, watch out for stray bullets~.”

[TOSHIIE]: “Huh? As if those things could hit me!”

Despite scoffing Toshiie-san led his troops as instructed and pushed the enemy army towards the center.

In the meantime, Mitsunari-san had made his preparations and focused on the battlefield, choosing a good time to give his command.

[MITSUNARI]: “Our targets are the foot soldiers in the enemy center! Gunmen, take aim…… FIRE!”

In the next moment, the enemy troops who suffered a rain of bullets were in a state of total collapse.

[YUZUKI]: (Wow…… although they were comrades from the start, is it possible to coordinate this quickly?)

[MITSUHIDE]: “Everything seems to be proceeding smoothly over there. Kanbee, my unit will dispose of the ambush in the east.”

[KANBEE]: “Aa. I will take the west.”

As if confident there were troops lying in ambush, Kanbee-san and Mitsuhide-san also acted.

The state of the battle constantly changed. I stood beside the two generals, looking at strenuous efforts of my friends.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Uwah. What a spectacle, huh. When we were under you we did many battles too, but this is the first time everyone from both armies has assembled together.”

[YUZUKI]: (Is that so…… wait, huh?)

[HIDEYOSHI]: “By the way Nobunaga-sama…… I’d like to try out that girl’s blood, you know?”

My heart skipped a beat when I was suddenly looked at by Hideyoshi-san.

[YUZUKI]: “Umm, uh……”

[NOBUNAGA]: “No. Too much has been used today.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Oohh, you’re being kind.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Naturally. She’s irreplaceable.”

[YUZUKI]: (…… I wonder if I should be happy about being called irreplaceable.)

After that, the enemy army was somehow driven away–

We decided to stay at the Toyotomi castle, which also served as a rest.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Well now, today was some hard work.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “To think an enemy would pounce at our joint meeting. How unlucky, huh?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… Heh, what a shameless lie.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “If you are seriously going to put away everything with the word bad luck then you’re blind.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Haha, so that means you have the same thoughts, Nobunaga-sama……?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Aa. In all probability, it was a warning to us or possibly some kind of advance notice.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “…… Well, to them our existence is pretty big obstacle, huh.”

[YUZUKI]: (These two seem to have an idea about which army those military troops came from……)

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… For the time being, we must pay attention to each other’s backs.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Right…… but just so you know, I won’t accept you losing to someone other than me.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “As long as the partner I have tied an alliance to isn’t useless, there’s no need to worry.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Haha, that’s harsh.”

Listening to their pleasant chat, I felt relief and joy spread through my heart.

[YUZUKI]: (I’m glad we were able to form an alliance properly…… with this one thing has been settled for now.)

[YUZUKI]: (But there’s still a lot of things that I don’t know…… when we return home, I’ll have to consult with Imari-kun too.)

Where did the light that came from the sacred treasure point to? Who was that army that suddenly appeared?

Moreover, as usual I didn’t know where Himemiko-sama’s whereabouts were. Lots of things were unsolved.

But somehow I felt like if I was with Nobunaga-san and the others then something would be done–

[NOBUNAGA]: “…… What are you smiling about?”

Not knowing when I started smiling, Nobunaga-san asked me this questioningly.

[YUZUKI]: “Umm, uh……”

Although I hesitated, I spoke about the wish that had just came to be.

[YUZUKI]: “I hope this relationship will last long.”

(T/N: Another one down! Also, were you guys surprised by the way Toyotomi + Oda paired off? For some reason I thought Mitsunari’s counterpart was Mitsuhide but according to this it’s Kanbee, haha.)

    (…… I wonder if I should be happy about being called irreplaceable.)

    me too, Yuzuki. at one side, it could mean you’re an irreplaceable emergency snack. but in the other side, it simply mean you’re important to Nobunaga bc he adores and overprotective of you.

    I thought Mitsunari is Mitsuhide’s counterpart too but got so surprised it’s Nagahide intead! so does this mean Hanbee is Ranmaru’s?

      Complicated feelings. Even if Nobunaga only wants her for her blood, because she’s the only one that has it… that makes her special and precious, right? And your blood is a part of you so ??? there’s no problem there really? I mean it’d be nice to be appreciated for your personality or your own worth and achievement rather than just something you were born with I guess |D;; but yeah…

      I think so with the process of elimination! But then again they never showed Ranmaru so maybe they were like “nah Ranmaru and Hanbee aren’t really counterparts so we’re not even gonna include Ranmaru”.

    I wonder too if the Mori clan is the group that are wipe out that Nagahide mentions in past chapter where he help Yuzuki study. Because how they wipe out if they granted power that powerful than the gekka tribes? Or like you said before, they are included to the gekka tribe too. I’m so excited to the revelations in the future ^^

      Oh by the way, Hideyoshi that’s not what you said to Nobunaga, you said it like this “Nobunaga-sama, can I marry that girl and have your blessings? ” HAHAHA JK XD

        Oh, hmm, that’s an interesting theory! About the Mori clan being the bakufu (essentially the military government) that was guarding Himemiko directly. I’m also wondering if we might end up with a big bad boss or something because the yakuma are still a huge question mark LOL. I hope they explain if their “demon” race is just another natural Gekka tribe or what because so far we only knew about vampires and werewolves. Like MC is thinking, there’s still so many questions.

        LOL RIGHT? I KEEP WAITING FOR HIDEYOSHI TO PULL OFF SOMETHING LIKE THAT!! Give me my Toyotomi and Oda love rivalry– //bricked.

    EEEeeee I love their interactions! Would love to see them get along for a long while ;; 7 ;; )) (I also thought Mitsunari would be paired off with Mitsuhide lol) Also…I just noticed, but Mistuhide’s sword is rlly pretty~ it’s a gentle lilac with maple leaf (?) patterns. Thanks for the chapter!

      Ilinox responded:

      SAME! I’m also guiltily hoping that Hideyoshi will start pulling off his “I like this girl! I want her as my bride!” even here LMAO but maybe that’d be too much… tbh I kept expecting him during the negotiations to be like “Yeah, I’ll go back to Oda if you give me the girl” hjkfgjhgfh.

      Yeah! I really like Kanbee’s design too because it’s like black flecked with gold |D. Mitsuhide’s sword turns colors when he awakens too if you remember in 3.5! It turns black with maple leafs. Meanwhile, I’ve finally figured out that “white blade” in the OP song was referring to Nobunaga’s sword because it’s described as a white blade in the previous chapter too. But what cracks me up is that here it looks more like blood?? Just a regular sword covered in red?? And then when he awakens it’s a sword covered in black!! LOL. The only white bit is the edge of the blade and I don’t know if that counts as having a white sword/blade…

        Lolol I don’t think that little sliver of white counts as having a white blade xD
