SNB Date ~ Chapter 7.1 ~

Chapter 7: One Should Persist with One’s Way–

The next clue that leads to Himemiko seems to be in the Uesugi territory.

Masamune advances his army towards the Uesugi territory without delay, but a battle has started between the Uesugi Army and Takeda Army in front of their eyes!?

Chapter 7.1

The light emitted from the sacred treasure pointed to the Uesugi territory.

[YUZUKI]: (Uesugi is the place that Masamune-san and the others attacked before, huh. But the tables were turned on them…)

[YUZUKI]: (For Himemiko-sama to be in the territory governed by such a strong enemy…)

.[SHIGEZANE]: “Dammit, why’d it have to be Uesugi of all things! Aren’t they the most annoying ones!”

[KOJUUROU]: “However, if that light is denoting the location of Himemiko then we cannot leave it as is.”

[KOJUUROU]: “If we obtain Himemiko’s power, then the Date Army will be able to unite Shinga…”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Yeah, but our enemy is that Uesugi, you know? You think they’d let us through if we said “Heyy, we’re looking for something in Uesugi lands”?”

[KOJUUROU]: “Well…”

Kojuurou-san pondered over this while crossing his arms.

[KOJUUROU]: “… We have no chance of succeeding if we invade from the front.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “But there’s a high chance we’ll fail again like last time if we ambush them.”

[KOJUUROU]: “That is true…”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Ahh, geez! What should we do!”

[MASAMUNE]: “That’s obvious. –We’re invading Uesugi.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh!?”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Masamune, what’re you saying! The last time we ambushed Uesugi, you were on the brink of death!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “And yet you wanna attack again… this time you really might die, you know!?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Aa. I know. That’s exactly why we’re going.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “That’s exactly why, you say… I don’t know what to say about your “contrariness” coming this far too.”

[MASAMUNE]: “No matter what you say, I don’t plan to change my mind.”

[KOJUUROU]: “… Good gracious, a person like you…”

[KOJUUROU]: “It’s inevitable though, so we’ll go with this plan.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Hey, Kojuurou!? You serious!?”

[KOJUUROU]: “Our Date Army general has decided upon that. In which case, we need to obey.”

[MASAMUNE]: “… It’s settled then.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Kojuurou, Shigezane, tell the soldiers to “make preparations to head towards Uesugi territory”.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Acknowledged.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Let’s go, Shigezane.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “… Aagh, geez! Fine! Let’s do this then!”

The two of them said that and left the room.

[YUZUKI]: (We’re really going to Uesugi’s lands…)

When I thought about it again, my anxiety descended on me in a rush. Like what if Masamune-san and the others were injured again…

Moreover, there was no way it wasn’t going to be dangerous along the way.

[YUZUKI]: “Um, Masamune-san. Is it really okay?”

[MASAMUNE]: “What, are you also displeased?”

[YUZUKI]: “No, it’s not about attacking Uesugi…”

[MASAMUNE]: “Then what?”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m thinking about if the group we met when we got the sacred treasure attacks again…”

[YUZUKI]: “Those people were clearly targeting me. So if you take me along, won’t they come to attack again?”

[YUZUKI]: “Because of me, Masamune-san and the others will get involved. When I think about that, I get uneasy…”

[MASAMUNE]: “–How stupid.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh?”

[MASAMUNE]: “I said, how stupid. I wondered what you were going to say, but it was such a silly thing at this point.”

Unexpectedly, Masamune-san’s hand touched my shoulder, and I was gently embraced like that.

[YUZUKI]: “U-Um… Masamune-san?”

[MASAMUNE]: “… There’s no need for you to feel uneasy.”

Masamune-san murmured this by my ear as he held me.

[MASAMUNE]: “You appeared in front of us suddenly, escaped from the castle… I’ve become considerably used to getting involved in your circumstances.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha…”

[MASAMUNE]: “What’s with that dumb look?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Did you want me to say “you don’t have to think of it as us getting involved”?”

[YUZUKI]: “… No.”

I was surprised in spite of myself at his words that went beyond my expectations, but…

[YUZUKI]: “Because I know you wouldn’t say something like that, Masamune-san.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Heh… you understand me well, don’t you.”

Masamune-san’s expression suddenly relaxed.

At the same time I felt Masamune-san’s hand, which was on my shoulder, tighten slightly.

[MASAMUNE]: “… I thought it was only Shigezane and Kojuurou who understood me.”

[MASAMUNE]: “And I also thought it was more than enough for them to be the only ones who knew.”

[MASAMUNE]: “But, to think there was a woman who understood me to this extent.”

[MASAMUNE]: “… That might be why I’m so attracted to you.”

[YUZUKI]: (Huh!?)

[YUZUKI]: “Um, Masamune-san, just now…?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Ah! No, right now that was… nothing!”

[MASAMUNE]: “More importantly, tomorrow is an early day. Business has been concluded, so go back to your room and sleep! Understood?”

Masamune-san said that and turned his face away.

[YUZUKI]: (Masamune-san… thank you.)

His appearance was a little cute and, so that Masamune-san wouldn’t find out, I only smiled a little.

    “You appeared in front of us suddenly, escaped from the castle… I’ve become considerably used to getting involved in your circumstances.” That pep talk is a roundabout way of saying we’re in this together through raging storms and fire even if Yuzuki reconsider her goals because she doesn’t want them to get hurt.

    Showing your dere side is double edged sword Masamune. Yes, you make your feelings clearly known that way but you also open up yourself to potential teasing buddy. That’s why you spent your years of building up that image of ruthlessness to prevent getting yourself embarrassed and now that image might come crashing down as Yuzuki comes in like a wrecking ball. :)

      I love how it’s so quintessentially Masamune but also heartwarming (in his way) about how she’s one of them |D and like she’s basically family so it doesn’t count as getting involved. One for all and all for one!!

      Heehee, I love it when guys lose their complete cool as the heroine (or protag) gets close to them :’D FALL FOR HER!! FALL FOR HER!! It always throws me off whenever the game tries to remind us that Masamune is ruthless and the Date army is known for being merciless and will-use-anything-for-their-goal because you get a first row seat to how sweet and silly they can be, haha, just like this. Everyone else probably sees Masamune as a guy without morals but here he is being adorable.

    Hh!! FOUL PLAY, MASAMUNE. That was honestly so cute, that lil bit at the end, but he took it back. It’s kinda like a lil nip that makes you want just a bit more ;; 7 ;; )) Thanks for the chapter!

      Heehee I screamed inwardly when he said that BECAUSE I WAS NOT EXPECTING HIM TO BE SO HONEST. He took it back so fast but pfffffff he’s not fooling ANYONE with that and even Yuzuki knows LOL she’s probably just unsure of just how serious/how much he means that |D;; ATTRACTED AS IN LIKE? ATTRACTED AS IN LOVE?! TELL US MASAMUNE.

      Thank you for your comments <33!!

      Thank youuuuu!! I’m all recharged and ready to tackle the rest of Date and then move into the next army ٩( ‘ω’ )و! Aww, haha, nothing motivates me more than getting these kind of comments and letting me know that you’re all enjoying these stories just as much as I am!

      LOL Masamune is soooooo cute when he’s honest and reveals his feelings. That gap moe with his tsun but unfortunately it comes so rarely :’). I love him when he’s like this but I gotta admit his tsun made me so angry at the beginning, haha. I think Nagahide’s tsun is more my type.

    WELCOME BACK! I’m so glad you’re back! 🎆🎉🎊😆🙌
    What did you just say my baby boy, they’re not annoying…..😨😭 Oh, now it’s Shigezane who’s not agree on Masamune’s plan, first is Kojuro, about not wanting Yuzuki to go along with them to the Sanada territory. He’s so worried to his tsun-tsun cousin.
    That was a perfect mood, why she must ruined it😭 but at least we know now that he’s becoming more honest to his feelings 😆 so I hope that’s love or something…. Like becoming his one of his closer friends….. 💔

      Thank youuuuuuu <33!!

      Haha, the rivalry and grudge is strong between Date and Uesugi (all on Date's side though; I have a feeling Uesugi probably couldn't care less about Date or forgot that they existed |D;;). Ooh, yeah, the switch with Kojuu and Shigezane is pretty funny! Meanwhile, Masamune is a daredevil, haha.

      I think by now Masamune has completely melted for Yuzuki and since she can read him she knows he's all bark and barely any bite, heehee.

    You’re back! Hopefully you have had a good rest?

    Masamune, that was almost perfect if only you did not backtrack. ಠ_ಠ
    Oh well, he’s a tsun after all, and we and Yuzuki know it, so… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      I’m back!! I did! Feeling pumped and ready to get back into translation work, haha, especially since I got that LN chapter off my back and reset the counter there.

      Hahahaha, to be fair, Masamune’s voice is still soft throughout his backtracking. Like he’s completely flustered and you can hear it 1000% so it’s super cute :’D. You’re right though that thankfully by now Yuzuki is completely used to it and she can understand him perfectly.
