SNB Oda ~ Chapter 9.4 ~

Chapter 9: Complicated Expectations

A mysterious army that suddenly appeared; however, with the united front of both armies, they were succesfully repelled.

A banquet was held that night, but everyone seems to have their own feelings and thoughts…

Chapter 9.4

[YUZUKI]: “An informer…?”

[RANMARU]: “… Meaning there might be someone who is leaking the Oda Army’s information to another army.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha!? Why do you think that?”

[RANMARU]: “… Lately, Katsuie-san has been acting strange.”

.[RANMARU]: “He’s been concerned about any eyes being on him and it looks like he’s been sending letters frequently to someone…”

[YUZUKI]: “Katsuie-san… that’s…”

[RANMARU]: “I’ve rarely seen him send letters to anyone until now…”

[RANMARU]: “Do you not think it’s suspicious?”

[YUZUKI]: “But for Katsuie-san to leak the Oda Army’s information out… I don’t think he’d do that…”

[RANMARU]: “Well… it’s true that we won’t know anything if we just talk amongst ourselves here…”

[RANMARU]: “In the end, we need to ask Katsuie-san directly… Now that we’ve decided, let’s go.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…? Go right now?”

Ranmaru-kun peremptorily pulled my hand and headed towards Katsuie-san’s room.

[RANMARU]: “… Ah, please look! That’s…”

The moment we found Katsuie-san he was in the middle of receiving a letter from a soldier.

[YUZUKI]: (This is what Ranmaru-kun had just said…)

We hid in the corner of the hallway and peered at Katsuie-san, but–

Katsuie-san, who received the letter and read it, had an expression that was somewhat sad.

[YUZUKI]: (That look… It doesn’t feel like he’s leaking information…?)

[RANMARU]: “I wonder who that letter is from… It can’t be…”

[YUZUKI]: “From another army…!?”

[RANMARU]: “Shhh… you can’t raise your voice… or we’ll be found.”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah! S-Sorry… Hey, I really don’t think Katsuie-san is a betrayer though.”

[RANMARU]: “I really want to believe in Katsuie-san… in everyone too.”

[RANMARU]: “But even Mitsuhide-san, who I thought would never defy Nobunaga-sama, betrayed us once.”

[RANMARU]: “I can’t fully believe in my comrades anymore…”

[KATSUIE]: “… Is that how it is.”

[RANMARU]: “Ah…!”

[YUZUKI]: “K-Katsuie-san…! You noticed us?”

[KATSUIE]: “… Yeah. I thought there was some kind of presence here so I came over and heard Ranmaru’s voice.”

[KATSUIE]: “I know what you guys wanna say, and if this is gonna kick up unnecessary misunderstandings then… here, take a look.”

When we looked at the other side of the letter we received from Katsuie-san, Toshiie-san’s name was there.

[KATSUIE]: “Haha, poor handwriting huh.”

When Ranmaru-kun saw the name of the letter, he spoke without losing his quiet expression.

[RANMARU]: “… What did you speak about to Toshiie?”

[KATSUIE]: “Aah… I asked if he wouldn’t return to the Oda Army. I’ve asked many times but I got turned down again.”

[KATSUIE]: “From here, the Oda Army’s gonna have to get bigger and bigger. No matter how many forces we have, it won’t be enough.”

[KATSUIE]: “But well, it’s unattractive for two dudes to be exchanging letters, huh.”

[YUZUKI]: “… So, that was the situation.”

[RANMARU]: “… But Toshiie is an enemy who betrayed Nobunaga-sama once!”

[KATSUIE]: “… That’s right. That’s why if you say you don’t like this, I’ll stop.”

[RANMARU]: “Huh?”

    My Katsuie-Toshiie needs were fulfilled by this! omfg I waited for so long!! Katsuie’s older? They look like the same age I mean you would think Katsuie is older until you know his personality.And that “two dudes exchanging letters is unattractive” thing …I was like “Oh no boi where are you even taking this “,honestly I love how I love him for all the new things he does,my favourite meathead.Toshiie’s also steadfast about not leaving Toyotomi and I just love the kind of loyal and faithful men these two are <3

      Hahaha, they are pretty cute together! Especially in Toyotomi where they’re just chugging sake like no tomorrow. I actually took his line about two dudes exchanging letters as just gentle fun at the thought of two muscle heads like them hunched over and writing letters to each other rather than anything else |D but aw, yeah, I really like the bond you can feel between them here. Surprisingly sensitive sides revealed by both and how steadfast and loyal they are to their respective leaders… even if it means fighting each other SOBS.

    She can understand Katsuie and can tell that he’s not the traitor so would Ranmaru just listen to her if he feels complicated.
    And what he said to Mitsuhide is so hurtful 😖💔 I wanna shake him and tell WAKE UP BOY! then slap his pretty girly face 😭

    Oh, 2 guys who are muscle lovers are exchanging letters……….. Hmm……… Yeah normal, just normal, what am I thinking 😂😂😂

      Honestly, I’m surprised Ranmaru thought it as Katsuie LOL. He would have been the last person I would have thought… well, actually I would have thought that for everyone. I couldn’t imagine Katsuie or Nagahide doing something like that. And Mitsuhide is already out cause he did it once.

      LOL you’re feeling pretty aggressive towards poor Ranmaru, huh. I can kinda see where he’s coming from though ;w;/ burned once and now he’s scared to trust completely in his people again. He’s just a kid though and he has such good role models to look up to (*coughs* Katsuie and Nobunaga–).

      L O L HONESTLY I DIDN’T BAT AN EYE AT THAT UNTIL KATSUIE MENTIONED IT. Guys can exchange letters and be pen pals too!! Geez, Katsuie, no need to go all “no homo” here.

    Oooooh, poor Katsuie. It is noticeable that the separation with Toshiie hurts him but but he doesn’t want to create problems for Oda’s army. Seriously, I want everyone to come together. (」><)」

      Right!? I was really touched and surprised at this chapter too… to think that Katsuie and Toshiie had this bond and yet they’re on opposite sides, ouch. I wish everyone could get along too, haha, and then they wouldn’t have to fight over Shinga like this!! Darn men and their ambitions–
