SNB Kagemochi ~ Awakening ~

Posted on Updated on

[YUZUKI]: (Where in the world did Kagemochi-san go…)

[YUZUKI]: (He should be exhausted after the battle…)

[YUZUKI]: (Oh no, it can’t be that something happened…!)

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… Oh my, what are you doing here…”

I spun around at the noise of bushes being parted and there stood Kagemochi-san, who seemed a little surprised.

[YUZUKI]: “Kagemochi-san! I was looking for you. Where did you go…?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I went to confirm the movements of the enemy prisoners that were just released.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “It appears that I… worried you. My apologies.”

[YUZUKI]: “It’s fine as long as you’re safe. C’mon, let’s go home now.”

I sighed in relief and ran over to him. However, for some reason, Kagemochi-san quickly put distance between us.

[YUZUKI]: “Kagemochi-san…?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Please return home first.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “If you go right and pass through the forest you will join up with everyone.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I have some business and so I will go back later alone.”

[YUZUKI]: “Um… but…”

[YUZUKI]: (I’m worried and if he disappears again after I leave this place…)

[YUZUKI]: “… Then I’ll go together with you, Kagemochi-san.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Good gracious… you…”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh? Kagemochi-san, what are you…?”

I was dumbfounded when I stepped up to Kagemochi-san and was captured within his arms in seconds.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Truly… you are a girl I don’t know what to do with.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Even though I tried to let you escape…”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha… what’s wrong…?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Right now, in this place, there is only you and me alone here…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… And yet you approached on your own…”

[YUZUKI]: “Uh…”

I felt him smiling thinly above my head. But when I tried to confirm that the clouds covered the moon and Kagemochi-san’s expression was masked.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “You’re too careless, you know?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Or is it… that you are testing my reason?”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah… Kagemochi-san…!”

Having that whispered to me with a smile, I was gently pushed down. My comprehension could not catch up and my body trembled slightly.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I apologize but… I cannot…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… endure anymore, you see?”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah… what are you…!”

Both my hands were seized above my head and I couldn’t move my body. I knew my heart was racing to the point where it felt like it’d burst.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… Your breathing is rough. And your heartbeat is terribly fast…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Is it because you were worried and ran around searching for me? Or is it…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Because of this current situation…?”

The whisper was directly in my ears, like a breath poured in, and I reflexively twisted my body out of embarrassment.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Haha… perhaps it is both of them.”

[YUZUKI]: “Um… Kagemochi-san, let me go–“

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Certainly not. Please give up. You are the bad one, having approached me yourself.”

In front of my eyes I was smiled at sweetly and my face burned hot.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “You know, the part of you that is courageous, and the part of you that gets easily embarrassed…”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah…!”

Kagemochi-san forcibly opened the collar of my clothes while he whispered.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I love it all…”

[YUZUKI]: “Ngh…”

Along with a whisper, my neck was kissed. A faint sigh leaked out from me at that sweetness.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… May I?”

Lips touched my chest and at the sensation of fangs gently pressing against me I closed my eyes instead of nodding.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Haha… good girl.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… I love you.”

With my eyes closed, I listened enrapturedly to those dear whispers.

    He said “I love you.” //steams up even more. Hold up. Lemme wipe up the steam fogging up the screen ;; w ;; )) jkjk xD. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone say that in their awakening scenes yet, but hhoooo ~ //fans. This scene is spicy…a bit displeased about the blame part but…this guy… ō v ō ))…but he does apologize. Urgh my heartstrings are manipulated so orz. He’s a strategist this guy is :’))

      HE DID! Although I should note that there is a small possibility he didn’t mean “I love you” and meant more like “I love [that you’re a good girl, aka. this whole situation is going this way]” kind of thing LOL because he only says “suki da” but doesn’t specify what. I did my best going from the context but sOBS I wouldn’t put it past Kagemochi to say he loves how good of a girl she’s being JSFGKHJFFGH.

      Every time I see this awakening too I’m just like OH MAN OH MAN to myself because that was just so extremely lewd and dangerous for the heart.

        Ahh I’m not at all surprised that it’s so ambiguous. Haha his whole attitude is ambiguous, especially with how he plays cat and mouse with mc most of the time xD.

    It’s interesting how Kagemochi interpreted “I’ll come with you too” as “take me I’m yours” after he tried to give her a chance to leave, although most likely he’s probably aware what she meant was innocent.

    I can’t remember well is he the only one beside Nobunaga that drinks blood from the chest? I understand the neck part, but the chest area seems a little risque since they’re already up in her personal bubble, fortunately for Yuzuki if it’s from the back she can’t see them but she can somewhat hide her embarrassment.

      I can’t help but compare him to Kanetsugu because they both basically mention “it’s your fault for coming close to me when I’m tired/injured and thirsting for your blood” but Kagemochi handles it with much better class and makes sure she’s fully enjoying it ;)).

      IIRC Nobunaga took it from her throat, it was just a very provocative position because he bent her backwards tango-style LOL. But then Nobunaga has that part in his story where he kisses her on the chest. I think Kagemochi might be the only one to drink from her chest though, hmm, my memory is pretty fuzzy with awakenings but I think the rest just do shoulder or neck or ear, etc. I feel like Takakage might have something risque but I might be mixing it up with fanfic too (I’ve, uh, read way too many JP ones).

      The chest is definitely “ooh la la” though even if Kagemochi is mostly doing it on the upper swell. But I feel like Nagahide’s is //////// since it’s a kiss.

      Oh my God @_@ what happened to my comment!? I wrote longer than it has been posted.

      What I originally wrote -> Hot and sensual! His “I love you” with Midorikawa’s voice! And that part is my favorite sentence in the awakening story; “Certainly not. Please give up, you are the bad one, having approached me yourself”
      Thank you so much!

        Ack, WP thinks you’re trying to do HTML if you close brackets with >< (flipped around) but since no one's allowed to do HTML except for the blog owner it just eats comments instead :'( gotta be careful with those things.

        Haha, it looks like a few others like that line too! Personally my favorite is “… Your breathing is rough. And your heartbeat is terribly fast… Is it because you were worried and ran around searching for me? Or is it…” but honestly all of them are such good lines. PHEW. And the descriptions!! ALL THOSE WHISPERS!

    Wow, just wow!! The thing that made this extra steamy was his super flirty voice. It’s almost lethal, so lethal that I would be in danger of giving in if I was in Yuzuki shoes. Even when every alarm in my head is going off lol. Is Kagemochi the only one who says I love you in his awakening scene? I have awakened all of Date, Oda, and Uesugi armies. I do not remember anyone else saying it. What about Mouri, Takeda, Sanada, and Toyotomi? When I think about it I don’t think Kenshin said it, at least not directly. If I remember and translated correctly, Kenshin’s mouth was a little (how should I put it) preoccupied? Or the sake got to him and he forgot his signature politeness.

      *RIPS OFF SHIRT* I’VE ALREADY GIVEN INTO KAGEMOCHI!! Haha, jokes aside, it’s a bit embarrassing because Midorikawa doesn’t rank anywhere as one of my favorite seiyuu and yet he slays so much in this Kagemochi role… the character type and the delivery of the lines is just so deadly.

      I translated it as “I love you” but it’s actually a bit ambiguous because the first time he says it he’s referring to loving all these various sides she has (an indirect confession, I suppose). And then the second time comes after he calls her a good girl, so you could actually read it as him liking that she’s a good girl (I suppose another indirect confession). Buuuuut you can definitely read it as “I love you” too which is what I ended up ultimately choosing because “I love it” sounds odd. I’m a bit unhappy with how I couldn’t think of a way to convey that ambiguity, haha.

      Oh man, my memory for other people’s awakenings is fading but I think Motonari might… say something? He was really playful in his awakening and he might have said something like that but hmm. Haha, I don’t think Kenshin says it but he’s also the type to be veeeery roundabout because of his perceived position as the general of Uesugi :”)) and actions > words, haha.

      Ehehe, unfortunately Kenshin is gonna be delayed until the climatic part of Ch6 :’D but then I’ve got some things stored up for endless Kenshin– (aka his interactions and some card stories because uGH they’re so good).

    *fans self* Such a ladykiller~ I’m kind of curious about the flowers on the front part of his coat (and whether his hairpins go to the same imaginary space as Mitsunari’s glasses for awakening pffft). At first I thought they were chrysanthemums and then in awakening it turned into a spider lily design? But looking at it a bit more, maybe it’s just a bunch of chrysanthemums and then in awakening it’s one that’s blooming? Or idk there actually is no meaning and the flowers are there for aesthetic LOL.

      Ilinox responded:
      March 28, 2018 at 23:46

      (And where Nobunaga’s hair tie goes~). He has flowers on the front part of his coat? I completely did not notice that, unless you mean the pattern on his inner shirt? I’d assume they were there for aesthetic but it’d be pretty cool if they meant something |D. I remember making fun of the pattern of his shirt the first time I saw him because I hate leopard print things and his patterns reminded me of leopard print… but now jokes on me because I love him so much and have gotten used to that pattern LOL.

        It’s the part that’s folded back with completely black and gold lining? Lol not sure how to describe it, but on it there’s that little button with the string coming out. The flowers have multiple petals, so I’d guess they are chrysanthemums? Unless there’s some other multi-petaled flower that looks like that, hah. Well, chrysanthemums are associated with multiple things like passionate love to neglected love, etc. I think the awakening just changes it to a single flower/chrysanthemum that’s in the middle of blooming with how the petals are but can’t really tell (though it’d be interesting if it were a spider lily design since those are usually assoicated with death/traigc love stuff).
        Haha, I feel the same way where I didn’t really care about Kagemochi (or anyone else) besides Hideyoshi, but soon enough it’s turned into Mitsuhide = Hideyoshi > Kagemochi > Kenshin > Kojuurou > Masamune (and then everyone else it’s whatever).
        I am kinda curious what happened after this scene ended, like did they go back to Kagemochi’s room where things got even more steamier? Or after all that teasing it’s like “:) Well, let’s head back to the castle now! Also, your blushing face is cute btw”

      *jumps into a pool of ice* The lines where he’s musing out loud about why her breathing is rough and why her heart is pounding is ///////// DO YOU NOT KNOW ANY MANNERS SIR. YOU DON’T POINT THAT OUT!! IT’S EMBARRASSING!!

        I feel that this words perfectly sum up our feelings about Kagemochi:

        “I love you despite the warning signs.”

      @Cinn, you took the words right out of my mouth!

      @イリ, this was indeed, “extra spicy”! I really have the worst luck with getting Kagemochi’s cards…so sad that I’ve only been able to watch this scene play out once. Yet another masterful performance by Midorikawa, don’t you think? ٩(^ᴗ^)۶

        Ilinox responded:
        March 28, 2018 at 20:18

        *waggles eyebrows* Oh man, I recommend looking up his other cards on Youtube if you’re really curious about them because Midorikawa’s voice in general as Kagemochi is devastating. I do have plans on translating two of his card stories because I just so happened to record his voice at some points and because !! Kagemochi!! (I can’t resist him).

    I remembered not being able to listen to Midorikawa’s flirting voice without being consumed in blushes the few days after I seen this the first time. how dare you, writer-san, made him bite Yuzuki at the boob?! that’s against the law!! … but I love it♥

    I might not remember the rest of them’s awakening scene perfectly, but I think Mochi’s the only one that directly said “I love you” and that’s the weird reason why I love his awakening scene more than most.

      Ilinox responded:
      March 28, 2018 at 20:17

      Gods, the tone he uses as Kagemochi is illegal to the extreme. His voice just keeps going lower and lower and softer!! YAMETEEEE!!

      I think so! I feel like Motonari might have said something really affectionate but my memory is going now because it’s been so long since I’ve seen the awakenings (I haven’t replayed any of them, oops).
