SNB Date ~ Chapter 3.4 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 3: The Warm Light Dwelling in One’s Heart–

Shigezane was wounded in the yakuma extermination.

She caught a glimpse of their family-like “bond” in how Kojuurou listened calmly to the situation and admonished Shigezane and how, in his own way, Masamune showed his appreciation for others.

Chapter 3.4

The three from the Date Army, me, and Imari-kun, who was safe and lively, were……

Surrounding Masamune-san’s handmade feast.

[IMARI]: “Waaah, this is delicious~!”

.[SHIGEZANE]: “Aa, it’s super tasty! I’ll have seconds!”

[KOJUUROU]: “Shigezane, do you intend to eat all of it by yourself? Consider others when you eat.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Though…… this is truly delicious food. I fully understand your feelings on wanting seconds.”

The handmade feast was highly praised by everyone and Masamune-san snorted, as if embarrassed somewhere.

[MASAMUNE]: “Hn…… this isn’t anything special.”

[YUZUKI]: “But… every dish is really good.”

[YUZUKI]: “I thought so when I received your boxed dishes, but Masamune-san you’re really talented at cooking, huh.”

When I said this and smiled, Masamune-san turned away.

[MASAMUNE]: “…… Shut up and eat.”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, that’s right. It’s such delicious food, it’d be rude to talk while eating.”

[MASAMUNE]: “…… Is it that delicious?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes.”

[MASAMUNE]: “…………”

Masamune-san placed several dishes that were before him in front of me.

[YUZUKI]: “Umm…… are you giving them to me?”

[MASAMUNE]: “They’re failures.”

[YUZUKI]: “Really? But they’re good.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Hmph……”

[YUZUKI]: (Masamune-san looks somewhat happy……?)

[SHIGEZANE]: “Which reminds me, today at training–“

[KOJUUROU]: “Shigezane, don’t talk with food in your mouth.”

[KOJUUROU]: “And Masamune, careful, your sleeve will touch the miso soup.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Ah…… that was dangerous.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “You aren’t gonna eat that fish? I’ll take iit!”

[IMARI]: “Ahhh!? I was leaving that to eat last!”

[KOJUUROU]: “Shigezane! Don’t take another’s dish!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Geez, stop nagging at every little thing, Kojuurou. I just have to return it, right? I’m returning it!”

[YUZUKI]: (…… I never imagined that when I came to this world, in such a short time, I would be able to have such a lively and fun meal.)

[YUZUKI]: “…… Ahaha.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Hm? Is something the matter?”

[YUZUKI]: “No…… I just felt happy, so.”

[YUZUKI]: “Everyone in the Date Army is close like a family and when I’m having a meal together with everyone……”

[YUZUKI]: “It’s almost like I’m one of you.”

[IMARI]: “Huuuh! What about me? Am I being left out!?”

[YUZUKI]: “No, of course you’re included, Imari-kun.”

[IMARI]: “Ehehe……”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Well, yeah, we’re all like one family.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “‘Cause when we were tiny, we were brought up by Kojuurou’s big sis.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “At that time, big sis was like our mother but now Kojuurou is totally the mother!”

[MASAMUNE]: “That’s true.”

[KOJUUROU]: “I’m not intending to take the place of your mothers though……”

[KOJUUROU]: “It’s because you’re both reckless, so I end up having to bother.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “You say that, Kojuurou, but you just really like looking after us, right?”

[KOJUUROU]: “Don’t be ridiculous.”

Even this casual conversation was heart-warming and I smiled again.

[IMARI]: “For a while, I wondered how things were going to go, but–“

[IMARI]: “It’s a nice feeling to be getting along, huh.”

[IMARI]: “This is also thanks to your efforts for everyone.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh, no…… I haven’t done anything……”

[YUZUKI]: (When I was imprisoned abruptly I was honestly surprised and unbearably scared.)

[YUZUKI]: (But now I know that these three in the Date Army are kind and fun people–)

[YUZUKI]: (…… When I think on it now, I’m glad that when I came into this world these people were the first ones I met.)

[KOJUUROU]: “Oh, are you not going to eat? There is still much more left.”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, yes! Don’t mind if I do!”

[YUZUKI]: (Especially Kojuurou-san who is always concerned about me like this. I’m really grateful……)

It was somehow amusing to be able to understand what everyone said about Kojuurou-san and how “if this were a family he’d be the mother”.

[YUZUKI]: (But if I were really to become a member of this family…… I think I’d definitely be happy.)

[SHIGEZANE]: “Thanks for the food.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Oi, Shigezane, you still have vegetables left.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Che…… I got found.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Don’t be picky and eat properly.”

[YUZUKI]: (Haha, he really is like a mom.)

[SHIGEZANE]: “What d’ya mean, geez. It should be okay leaving this much……”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Geh, Kojuurou, you’re always being noisy and nagging……”

At Shigezane-san’s side, who was unwillingly putting his vegetables into his mouth, Masamune-san brought his face close to Kojuurou and lowered his voice.

[MASAMUNE]: “I just remembered, Kojuurou, come to my room after.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Hm……? Why?”

[MASAMUNE]: “It’s been a long time and I want to listen to that.”

[YUZUKI]: (That……? What’s “that”……)

[KOJUUROU]: “How unusual for you to say that. How many years has it been?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Is it impossible?”

[KOJUUROU]: “No, of course not. I understand, I shall prepare.”

[MASAMUNE]: “…… I’m counting on it.”

Having said that Masamune-san returned to eating but, for some reason, Kojuurou-san watched him for a while with some concern.

[YUZUKI]: (What exactly were they talking about……?)

    Both 3 of them I totally agree, it’s a big thumbs up 👍 👍 Kojuro is a mom 😂
    ” But if I were really to become a mother…. Ack! No, I mean member…” I miss read the member as a mother because there’s many ‘mother’ mentioned here 😂 AHH….!!!! I NEED TO EXTRA CLEAN MY GLASSES!!! IT’S NOT THERE YET! IT’S NOT THERE YET! TOO EARLY FOR THAT! Hahaha XD

      LAUGHING. I’m sure one of the members of the army would be interested in making her a mother– //bricked. Admittedly, I feel a little bad for Kojuu whenever Yuzuki thinks of him as a mom though because that means she doesn’t see him as a guy |D;;

        Ah, Umm she doesn’t mean that, she still see him as a man but not romantically like as a brother or a friend(maybe in future her feelings will change romantically ) . Caring is a reflection of his personality and a will of his sister and if he did not accomplished that, you know what will happen to him hehehe 😅(I can’t speak english very well, I’m not sure if I said it correctly >_<)
        And Kojuro, I'M SORRY….!!! 🙏 🙇

    I always wonder why Senbura made Date team only 3 ppl instead of 5 like other clans. but then again after this chapter I can see their ‘family’ dynamics worked a lot better when there’s just 3 (+2 newcomers).

    have you read Date’s chapter 8? that CG though…

      It still makes me “hmm” a little because Sanada has a family theme going on as well and they have 5 so ;;; but yeah Date definitely shoves the family theme in your face really hard. Every other sentence it feels like they’re saying “family family family!!” hahaha. I love it though and because they’re so small it means we get a lot more interactions with each member instead of juggling 5.

      I haven’t gotten around to it until now but OH MAN I’m always dying to how infuriating and shameless Masamune can be to other people. He’s sooooo ruthless LOL. Agreed about that CG too, wowza.

    Kojuurou the mom. Oh my xD. He definitely fits the role to a T~ You’re right about Shigezane being quite childish tho…eat your veggies pls ^^ )) Is this when they introduce the flute playing tho o 7 o ))) ? Thanks for the chapter!

      I’m wincing in sympathy because while it’s funny to imagine Kojuurou as the mom to Shigezane and Masamune, if even Yuzuki thinks of him as a mom… rip to Kojuurou’s manliness and ever being seen as a guy– LOL. Heehee, you’re right on the money with the guess about the flute!
