SNB Date ~ Chapter 8.2 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 8: The Light Points to a New Sight–

Binding an alliance, Masamune and the others obtained permission to move freely within Uesugi territory.

They then slipped out to a cave, pointed to by the light emitted from the sacred treasure, and what they found there was…?

Chapter 8.2

[KENSHIN]: “…… Indeed, words alone are not enough of an apology when you had been shot at with arrows.”

[KENSHIN]: “Hence, there is a need to show our sincerity.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Kenshin-sama, then…”

[KENSHIN]: “Yes. I will accept the demands of Date.”

Hearing those words, Kagemochi did not say anything more.

[MASAMUNE]: “Well then, about the content of our demands–“

[MASAMUNE]: “Give us permission to walk freely through Uesugi’s territory.”

[KENSHIN]: “My territory… you say?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Aa. The other day you guys were able to drive away the Takeda Army thanks to us.”

[MASAMUNE]: “–However, we’re talking about the Takeda Army. It won’t go so well every time.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Knowing that we’re helping, they might lead a massive army next time.”

[MASAMUNE]: “If we are to fight together then I need to grasp the terrain of Uesugi’s territory in advance. That way the war can proceed favourably.”

[KENSHIN]: “… I see. I understand what you wish to say.”

[KENSHIN]: “However, I am unable to answer that yet.”

[MASAMUNE]: “What do you mean at this point in time. Were you not going to accept our demands?”

[KENSHIN]: “Of course that is my intention. I will give permission for “those of Date” to look around my territory.”

[KENSHIN]: “However… who is that girl over there. Is she also of Date?”

Kenshin-san’s gaze was cast onto me. My body stiffened at those cool eyes.

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, I, I’m…”

[YUZUKI]: (How should I answer…)

While I was thinking, Masamune-san suddenly pulled me towards himself by the arm–

[MASAMUNE]: “This girl is my wife.”

[YUZUKI]: “… M-Masamune-san!?”

[KAGEIE]: “This girl is your wife? There should be no reason to bring your wife to this place.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “This is clearly unnatural. Kenshin-sama, there can only be something underneath–“

[KENSHIN]: “–Enough, both of you.”

When Kenshin-san said this, both Kageie-san and Kagemochi-san immediately closed their mouths.

[KENSHIN]: “Then, may I have you come to my castle first?”

[KOJUUROU]: “Why?”

[KENSHIN]: “As a token of our alliance and to apologize for inflicting harm on you and yours.”

Masamune-san showed that he was thinking about Kenshin-san’s words.

But, within an instant, his expression returned to normal.

[MASAMUNE]: “Aa, I understand. We’ll go there.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Wait… what’re you saying, Masamune! By castle, it’s the same as going to their base, you know!?”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Even though we’re said to be allied, originally–“

[MASAMUNE]: “Aa, they’re enemies, but right now they’re our allies. We should be taking their invitation here.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “But–“

[KOJUUROU]: “Shigezane, be quiet and come along.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “… Ahh, geez, fine!”

[KENSHIN]: “Have you finished your discussion? Then let us head there at once. Kageie, Kagemochi, I entrust you two to guide them to the castle.”

[KAGEIE]: “… Understood, Kenshin-sama.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… We will be your guides. Please, come this way.”

Following Kenshin-san, Kagie-san and Kagemochi-san started walking, and behind them Masamune-san and the others, who were on their horses, followed.

I stared at the castle in the distance with uneasy feelings.

[YUZUKI]: (I hope nothing happens…)

Although we were joined by an alliance, Kagie-san and Kagemochi-san had not lowered their caution towards us yet.

Especially Kagemochi-san, who might set up something against us on his own judgement again.

[YUZUKI]: (… Will it really be okay?)

Perhaps it was nervousness but my fingers shook imperceptibly.

When that happened, Masamune-san slowly came closer–

[MASAMUNE]: “Don’t look so worried.”

[YUZUKI]: “M-Masamune-san…?”

[MASAMUNE]: “It’s you, so you’re probably wondering what to do if guiding us to their castle is a trap.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh… t-that’s exactly right…”

[MASAMUNE]: “Heh, as I thought…”

[MASAMUNE]: “If it’s a trap, then we’ll deal with it when the time comes.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Besides, if we’re cornered into an unfavorable situation, the fun of cutting our way through is born.”

Masamune-san showed a smirk that was full of confidence.

Drawn in by that expression, a smile unconsciously slipped out from me.

[YUZUKI]: (… If I’m together with Masamune-san and the others, I feel like we can easily overcome any trouble.)

When I realized it, my fingers had stopped trembling.

[YUZUKI]: “Haha, Masamune-san, you’re reliable.”

[MASAMUNE]: “… Hn, of course.”

And then Masamune-san faced the front and focused on the towering castle.

[MASAMUNE]: “In a little while we’ll arrive at Uesugi’s castle. Brace yourself.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay!”

    [KENSHIN]: “However… who is that girl over there. Is she also of Date?”

    “I swear to god if masamune is gonna say something about yuzuki being his wife again…”

    [MASAMUNE]: “This girl is my wife.”

    RIP I’m dYING. I’m surprised that kojuu and shige said nothing about it. Especially shigezane since usually he would probably be like “Wife? Wdym masamune” X”D

      At this point I don’t know if Masamune is becoming predictable or if we’ve all become accustomed to his outrageous remarks and plans like poor Shigezane and Kojuurou. LOL yeah I’m surprised they aren’t rolling their eyes behind him or something since this is the second time it’s been used (though I guess they weren’t there for the first one).

    Masamune’s favorite disguise 😂 sure he’s securing her 💜
    Hmm….. Something’s fishy here, Kenshin you really don’t care or act like you really don’t care…. Because he ask question.

      I’m surprised Shigezane or Kojuu isn’t like “Hey, why are you always hogging that excuse! We want to use that too!!” Hahaha. I love how everyone here is questioning what Kenshin knows because he’s way too quiet and it makes him suspicious. What is he planning? What has he seen through!? Dun dun dun.

    Wife. Again.
    Why not just make it official already… (¬‿¬ )

    It is a convenient excuse, sure, but though it works in the middle of a city with a rather gullible Yukimura, this time they are in enemy territory in a charged situation and surrounded by guys full of suspicion…
    I wonder what Kenshin is thinking…

      HONESTLY the go to excuse for Masamune seems to be “oh, she’s my wife” and I’m so glad they called him out on that HAHA. When I was playing through this I was like “PSH who takes their wife into a warzone!” and I nearly died laughing when Kageie said pretty much the same thing.

      Kenshin is wayyy too quiet and I wonder what he’s thinking too, especially when you see where the chapter ends off. Did he predict this? Does he have countermeasures?! Kenshin!!! Your nobleness will be your downfall and yet its so admirable how he has these principles and will uphold them no matter what!! I’m reminded of his route now and I’m so sad, haha.

        YEAHH!! I was also thinking that, but then my following thought was, “Wait, who would believe THAT Masamune has a wife?” //shot

        Now you’re making me curious of Kenshin’s route…

    i never thought KAGEMOCHI is like this in the game. i have different impression of him in the anime. but i still like him

      Ilinox responded:

      Haha, I don’t think the anime did a really good job of introducing the side characters. I think it did pretty okay with the leaders and showing the differences between each army, but their individual characters are still highlighted best in the game ;w;/ which is understandable (given the screen time they had) but it’s a bit sad. Kagemochi is definitely much shadier here though, haha, and I love that about him cause I think it’s surprising when you realize that his extremely high EQ makes him extremely sneaky.
