SNB Date ~ Chapter 7.5 ~

Posted on Updated on

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 7.5

Masamune-san, seeing the commander who appeared at the moment when a sword fight was to start between them and the Uesugi Army, muttered this.

[MASAMUNE]: “You… If I recall correctly, you’re Amakasu Kagemochi.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Oh my, you are well-informed.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Aa. I saw you when I attacked your master.”


It felt like the smile on Kagemochi-san’s face stiffened for an instant at Masamune-san’s words.

[MASAMUNE]: “I believe it’s unnecessary to give our names?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Yes. I heard from Kenshin-sama; you are all Date men, who have made an alliance with us, the Uesugi Army.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “So you knew we were allied! Then why–“

[KOJUUROU]: “Enough, Shigezane.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “But…!”

Shigezane-san complained but Masamune-san opened his mouth, as if to pacify him.

[MASAMUNE]: “Relax, Shigezane. I will speak for us.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Masamune…”

Masamune-san gave a single nod and then turned to Kagemochi-san.

[MASAMUNE]: “What was your intention, Amakasu Kagemochi.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “What are you referring to?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Don’t feign ignorance. Just now, you tried to kill us.”

[MASAMUNE]: “And you even went out of your way to set a trap in Date territory… What an effort.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Oh my, for someone to have been caught in such a rudimentary trap… it seems Date does not appear to be much at all.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “What’d you say!?”

Kagemochi-san was unperturbed at Shigezane-san’s furious voice. Far from that–

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Let me say this clearly; I cannot trust you and the Date Army.”

[MASAMUNE]: “So you tried to eliminate us.”

Masamune-san’s eye became even sharper.

[MASAMUNE]: “And does the entirety of Uesugi share your thoughts?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “No, this is my own judgement.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha…”

[MASAMUNE]: “Hmph, you’ve minced no words.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Nevertheless, to attack your allies on your own judgement… If your master knew that, you would be punished!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I acted, fully prepared to be punished. What is more important is to eliminate those who will harm Uesugi.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “That is why– I will have you all die here.”

Kagemochi-san quietly drew out his sword at the same time he finished speaking. With that as a signal, the soldiers of Uesugi held up their weapons again.

Kojuurou-san and Shigezane-san also raised their blades. If someone moved, the fighting would start– it became a situation which made me think that, but…

Amid this atmosphere, only Masamune was laughing fearlessly.

[MASAMUNE]: “Hehehe…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Why are you laughing?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Obviously, because it’s amusing.”

[MASAMUNE]: “To think there exists a troubling vassal in Uesugi who ignores the intent of their general and takes action.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Is that supposed to provoke me? Your plan is quite naive–“

[MASAMUNE]: “Moreover, to ignore your general means that you do not trust Uesugi Kenshin.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Kenshin has also fallen. His vassals don’t believe in him.”


Kagemochi-san’s eyebrow twitched slightly. But he soon recovered his original calm.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… Is that all you wish to say?”

[MASAMUNE]: “What, do you want to hear more sarcastic remarks about yourself? You’re a peculiar person.”

At that point, Shigezane, seemingly unable to just stand and watch, quickly entered between the two.

[SHIGEZANE]: “Hey, let’s leave it at that, Masamune! What are you thinking? What’ll you do if he gets pissed off!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Or is it that? You have some kinda plan!?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Hn, naturally. We should do exactly as we always do.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “You mean…”

Masamune-san grinned and then–

[MASAMUNE]: “We’ll cut our way through.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “That’s not even a plan!”

At that, a sigh slipped from Kagemochi-san’s mouth as if he had enough.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… The talking ends here.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “The retribution for having insulted Kenshin-sama will be compensated with your deaths.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Troops, arm yourselves! Kill them for Kenshin-sama!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “In the end it’s come to this!? But, well, it’s as usual as always!”

[KOJUUROU]: “Good gracious, there is no time to rest beside Masamune…”

[KOJUUROU]: “But that is what makes this the Date Army, huh. Very well, we will cut our way through this place.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “You guys, don’t get separated from us. It’ll be a problem if you’re cut and injured.”

[YUZUKI]: “R-Right!”

[IMARI]: “Okay!”

Raising a war cry, the soldiers of Uesugi charged. Masamune-san, Shigezane-san, and Kojuurou-san raised their swords to meet the enemy.

After the Uesugi Army advances a bit more, the clashing of swords will start.

Stepping on the ground firmly, Masamune-san and the others sought to break into the enemy lines. At that moment…

[???]: “–Hold!”

All of a sudden, a dignified voice echoed through the area.

[YUZUKI]: (Who…?)

We turned our eyes in the direction of the voice and what was there was–

(T/N: I love this chapter because look how brutal Masamune is LOL. Also, I remembered I was recording all his chuckling lines because CAN THIS BOY SOUND ANY MORE LIKE A VILLAIN? PLEASE UMEHARA. Psst, by the way, the clue to who the person is at the end is in the seiyuu tags–)

    If there ever was a plan that required pissing off the enemy, I nominate Masamune armed with his arsenal of sick burns.

    Oh yeah I almost forgot welcome back from your break and thank you for returning to the unpredictable adventure of Masamune (the rest of his group groans as they’re thrown into another one of his schemes again).

      Hahahaha SAME. If I ever need to piss anyone off I should just think “What Would Masamune Do?” because daaaaaaaamn son that was vicious. I legit feel sorry for Kagemochi.

      Aww, thank you!! I’m all refreshed and ready to charge through the rest of these wild hooligans :”D I’d say I sympathize with Kojuu’s exasperation at being dragged along but that’d be a lie because I love whatever crazy schemes Masamune comes up with.

    As someone who loves doing the evil laugh… MASAMUNE, I APPROVE!
    So much evilness in that chuckle, you know he’s gonna be SAVAGE. XD
    I think Kagemochi needs a lot of cold water for that burn!

      I feel like I gotta practice my own chuckling more because OH BOY that was so dark and chilling. Glad we’re on his side here. Hahaha, he certainly showed his savageness in the comments that followed because even I was wincing for Kagemochi and I’m just feeling it secondhand, I can’t imagine what Kagemochi feels since he really respects Kenshin LOL. No way, this requires high-grade burn cream LOL and a trip to the emergency room–

    Lol the beginning had me lmao haha, and omg that chuckling~ much likey xD. Another thing tho..the Uesugi feel like party crashers lol. Date army is trying to make things lively and break thru the lines, but that Kagemochi goes “Lower your weapons” with another mystery person telling them to halt the party again~ Last boss :3 ? Thanks for the chapter!

      I’m glad Masamune decided to take the ruthless route because with a voice and laugh like that… no one would believe him to be an innocent dude LOL. Or more like it’s because he’s ruthless that he sounds like that, hmm. Oh my, are you actually wanting them to get into a bloody fight?! Hahahaha. Maybe not the last boss but a boss is certainly appearing ;) thank you for the comments as always!

    OH DUDE, THAT WAS REALLY HARSH….. THIS PUPPER IS A EXPERT ON HOW TO ADD FUEL TO THE FIRE !!! *keep repeating Masamune’s evil laugh*
    I knew it, Kagemochi is a dangerous man! But I never thought he’s the one who’s responsible to those trap and take actions without his beloved lord’s word😲😨 but I still like him 😗 And Shigezane sense Kagemochi is going to explode anytime 😂😂😂

    *looks at the tags* KENSHIN!!!!!!!!! 💜💖💞💕💓💗

      RIGHT? LOL I LOVE THIS CHAPTER BECAUSE I WAS JUST SCREAMING AT ALL THE SICK BURNS MASAMUNE WAS DELIVERING. I’m pretty sure that when I was livetweeting this I was just yelling “HE’S DEAD ALREADY STOP MASAMUNE!! HE’S DEAD!!”. Umehara’s laughs… _(´ཀ`」 ∠)_ was not ready to hear how villainous and low that was.

      Kagemochi is a really interesting character :’D even after all the Uesugi chapters I’ve read he’s still kinda mysterious. Like he’s really smooth with girls and gentle/elegant but his extreme devotion to Kenshin (I wonder what happened in the past) makes him willing to do anything for Kenshin. He’s part of the shadowy four :’D Mitsuhide, Masanobu, and Kojuurou. Haha, I love Kagemochi still too and oh man even more so seeing him actually lose his cool towards Masamune’s remarks.

      Heehee BINGO!!

        Yeah Umehara’s voice……😚 Why your sick burns are so temptating with that voice 💓 that’s makes me not guilty on giggling…. I’m such a evil bwahahaha 😂
        Hmm….. I wonder too if he ask help or not but Kenshin helps him so. If so, that’s why he admires Kenshin a lot. Maybe we encounter the revelation in next or future chapters, I guess Kagemochi’s story will be sad 😢
        Oh I see why Mitsuhide is with those 3 wasabis, I should have known…. 😅 and I see him too in Chibi Kagemochi card so I was like ” hmm…. Youre with them again, maybe I give you names. Kagemochi the lady killer, Masanobu the lady magnet, Kojuro the lady pamper and Mitsuhide is lady’s gentleman, the L4😜 hahaha “

        I looked Amakasu Kagemochi up on wikipedia but it only has a short line about being forced to serve Kenshin and that, after his death, his descendants served Uesugi so |D;; very sparse information (not that senbura sticks 100% to everyone’s real history either… *looks at Mitsuhide*).

        HJFKGJHKGFHJ I’m dying at the L4. I LOVE THAT. Isn’t there a Korean drama that has a name similar to that? Except I think they were called the F4.
