SNB Kenshin ~ Awakening ~

Posted on Updated on

[YUZUKI]: (I’ve been summoned by Kenshin-san at this time… What in the world is it for?)

[YUZUKI]: “Good evening, Kenshin-san.”

[KENSHIN]: “Ah, you came.”

Kenshin-san said that with a smile and, in front of him, there was a serving tray with legs. On it were dried plums and sake.

[YUZUKI]: “Oh, you were in the middle of an evening drink. Sorry for coming at this time…”

[KENSHIN]: “No, do not mind that. Rather, I summoned you here for this.”

Saying that, Kenshin-san raised his cup.

[KENSHIN]: “I thought to speak with you a little while drinking sake.”

[YUZUKI]: “… That’s unusual. I thought you liked drinking alone, Kenshin-san.”

[KENSHIN]: “Indeed, that is how I prefer it in truth. Unless it is a celebration, I do not call for people.”

[KENSHIN]: “… Only, I find that the sake I drink is especially delicious when I converse with you.”

[YUZUKI]: “… I’m thankful for the invitation, but for me sake is a bit…”

[KENSHIN]: “Worry not. I am not asking you to drink. It is more than enough for you to accompany my evening drink.”

[YUZUKI]: “Then at least I’ll talk enough so that you aren’t bored, Kenshin-san.”

Kenshin-san smiled without warning.

[KENSHIN]: “Aa. I am relying on you.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay! … Let’s start then…”

And so, I talked to Kenshin-san about many things. Like my original world, the things that surprised me coming to this world… and as I spoke the time passed by in a flash–

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, sorry, I’ve just been talking about myself… Kenshin-san, you must be bored.”

[KENSHIN]: “Not at all. No matter how much I hear you talk, I do not tire of it.”

Maybe he was already tipsy but tonight Kenshin-san was slightly more talkative than usual.

[KENSHIN]: “… It would be nice to be able to drink and enjoy your stories like this forever…”

[YUZUKI]: “What’s wrong all of a sudden? Don’t worry, I can talk with you anyti–“

[KENSHIN]: “… There will be a war in the near future. If so, I may need to borrow your power again.”

[KENSHIN]: “Up to now, I have been helped in numerous battles by you. And I am grateful for that.”

[KENSHIN]: “However, the fact that I do not want you to experience any more danger is also an honest feeling of mine.”

[YUZUKI]: “By that… do you mean it’s a burden to protect me?”

[KENSHIN]: “You are mistaken… Of course, I will protect you. But there are still possibilities.”

[KENSHIN]: “And I am frightened of those possibilities. That there is a chance you can be hurt, even in the slightest, pains me.”

[YUZUKI]: “… So, you won’t take me to the battles anymore, is that it?”

[YUZUKI]: “I don’t want that. I want to help everyone, even just a little.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Or is it that my blood is no longer useful…?”

[KENSHIN]: “That is not true. You are someone that Uesugi cannot do without.”

[KENSHIN]: “Of course, for me as well.”

Kenshin-san drew me gently to him and I settled completely into Kenshin-san’s arms.

[KENSHIN]: “That is why I do not want to lose you at all…”

Kenshin-san stared intently at me and I also returned his look.

The distance between us closed from both sides. And then–

Lips touched. And separated.

[YUZUKI]: “… There’s just a bit of taste of the sake… It really is delicious sake.”

[KENSHIN]: “… Aa, this is good sake.”

[KENSHIN]: “But I know of a drink that is more delicious than any good sake.”

[KENSHIN]: “One that is utterly sweet, hot, and you are able to taste bliss just by imbibing it…”

[YUZUKI]: “Do you mean…”

[KENSHIN]: “… May I drink your blood?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes. If it serves you.”

Kenshin-san gave a small smile and then his lips closed in gently.

Those lips always moved to my neck. But this time it was different.

[YUZUKI]: (My mouth…!)

This act of drinking blood was like a kiss and my strength left my body.

After Kenshin-san finished drinking he licked his lips with a red tongue.

[KENSHIN]: “… You are special to me.”

[KENSHIN]: “I do not ever intend to part with you. Stay by my side from here on.”

And then we kissed for the third time.

    Hhh how romantic ;; 3 ;; ))) Lemme in on it too~ jkjk xDD. Wow! I didn’t think our aloof general had such a side in him. It’s so sweet and indulgent, and it just wasn’t expected~! They’re kinda approaching the vibe that a comfy married couple would give off haha xD. Thanks for the chapters~

      I love that contrast between how composed and distant Kenshin seems in public but then in private it’s just FULL SPEED CONTACT + AFFECTION. But then for some reason most of his card stories have him showing no shame in PDA with the heroine |D;; the writers must have realized how bad they were treating him in his own route–.

      Ohh, that’s so true! Although tbh the married couple award goes to Shingen and MC for me |D;; can’t wait to see you get to Takeda!

    I always like reading the comments of other readers on this website. Everyone is in the same boat, no hatred or being rude to each other, just full of love for Ilinox and our Sengoku babes :p

      Aww, haha, I do feel pretty blessed with all you lovely readers n__n and like you said just full of love for all the SNB characters. We have our own biases and people we’re not good with (stares at Kanetsugu) but it’s still all in affection and good fun.

    So far Kenshin and Nagahide are the only ones with a kissing scene with the root concern being her well being. Though the atmosphere is different in both, here Kenshin and Yuzuki are chilling in the safe confines of the castle while Nagahide just got back from battle with enemies probably lingering about. The contrast between soft and hard kisses is quite something.

      Ilinox responded:

      Oh, that’s very true! It’s interesting to compare the two like you said and the contrast between the situation and how that plays out with them. Kenshin’s awakening kind of implies that his relationship is further and more secure with the heroine too, compared to Nagahide somewhat scolding her for being too relaxed around men (like him) when they can do things to her.

    Kenshin is a love I wanted to scream like crazy, but it was early in the morning. It looked like a tomato.

    This is really different from the other awakening scenes because it is. just. so. romantic!!]
    Is it just me or Kenshin more often drinks her blood for pleasure instead of emergency… ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).

    One other thing I noticed, finally the plum made an appearance! lol~
    Kenshin really likes plum with sake, eh…

      Ilinox responded:
      April 10, 2018 at 10:53

      It’s so surprising to see that Kenshin is the one who does it too because he comes off as being so oblivious to love and so aloof/indifferent because he’s all about being a general over being a man, but then NOPE we get this |D;; I love that contrast. He can rival Nobunaga in PDA (or maybe more so because what Nobunaga does might not even be called PDA but more like staking his claim, lmao).

      Ahaha, he’s totally drinking her blood for pleasure ;)) even in Chapter 6.5 he straight up admits that he’s not drinking it for his wound but because he’s “irritated” (at the thought of Shingen even teasing about drinking her blood) hahaha.

      He loves those plums in general! Wait until you see this one potion scene with him about those, ahaha.

    This was definitely my favorite awakening other than Nagahide because it was super romantic and well Kenshin is so proper that well you wouldn’t expect it from him. Especially not a steamy one. It’s the quiet ones and the polite ones you gotta watch for 😉.

      Ilinox responded:
      April 9, 2018 at 14:44

      It’s always the gap moe that gives an extra +9502151 bonus to any scene HAHA. The common theme between Nagahide and Kenshin’s is that they’re kiss monsters ;)) is that what you like?

        AC said:
        May 2, 2018 at 07:25

        Hehe, That could be it. But some my other favorite characters are not necessarily kiss monsters, but more touchy-feely (Nobunaga) or just snippy *cough*Masamune*cough*. Maybe its cause I am a romantic. By the way, sorry for the late response. But college has sucked the life out of me these past few weeks I plan on catching up on your posts before the summer semester begins in 10 days T-T.

    OI! Kenshin you bad bad wolf! But I like it! (´ε` )// !!!!!! I can’t decide which awakening I like the most. Nagahide and Kagemochi were also DELICIOUS and there are still a few clans left! (๑♡⌓♡๑) I can’t thank you enough for translating this!

      Ilinox responded:
      April 9, 2018 at 14:43

      Heehee, you’re welcome! We still have 15 more original characters to go (three clans) and then there’s like 6 guest characters with awakening scenes so :’D the contest is still ongoing to see who has the sweetest awakening!!

    …and at that moment I began to scour the internet for more Toriumi works that has this much of sensuality. too bad he never did R18 drama cds (that I knew of) and only do R18 otome and BL games. why????

      Ilinox responded:
      April 9, 2018 at 14:41

      LMAO now that you mention it though I don’t think many of the older generation of seiyuu have done r18 drama cds because those only picked up within the last year or so? It’s not a surprise they have BL though since they broke in from there, iirc. But now with r18 otome cds being all the rage and the otomege genre being pretty popular in general now I think the younger generation can go straight into doing that (rather than BL stuff).

    Sexy time! I shouldn’t read this in a public OMG -//////- I’m screaming madly in my head now while trying to look calm at the same time. Kenshin you bad wolf! He’s so tricky saying those sweet words while drinking her blood and even keep kissing her many times♥️ A wolf is a wolf huh?

    I love the narration about she can taste sake from his lips ./////. This awakening story is so sensual and romantic.

        ALL MEN ARE BEASTS– //bricked. Whoever wrote this awakening scene definitely went all out //////// I’m also jaw-dropping at how smooth Kenshin can be. You don’t expect it from such a composed man but he knows exactly what to say to flatter a woman LMAO.

    *fans self*
    No matter how often I read the awakening story or play it, it still makes me feel so satisfied~
    Kenshin knows how to entertain himself, with sake in one hand and a woman in the other, hahaha~

      Ilinox responded:
      April 9, 2018 at 00:55

      I actually couldn’t remember much from Kenshin’s except that it had a kiss so this was definitely a nice refresher and treat for me too :”D (I also did the awakenings a bit early before I really knew their character so now seeing it again after knowing just what Kenshin goes through is !!! his relationship with his heroine is so nice).

      LMAO that gives me such a strange mental image of Kenshin. Like he’s a playboy rather than a cultured man who enjoys fine wine and playing his biwa and reciting poetry.

        Candy said:
        April 9, 2018 at 06:55

        Kenshin is a man of culture! 8D okay that was a bit weird on my part but it’s true :> he enjoys his sake and his beloved~

        Hm, same here. I think I have come to appreciate many characters and their scenes a lot more after I got into their story. It’s especially hard to care for side characters that you basically know nothing about.
        I wonder if it would be better to just get the awakening scenes unlocked after you are far enough into their story… Oh well, I will take what I can get. I have terrible gacha luck (90 shards thrown out for stupid step up gacha for nothinnng but potions), so I am thankful for the awakening fan service and the main story.

    Definitely one of my favourite (and especially romantic) awakenings! It’s up there with Nagahide, Kagemochi and Kojuro – now time to catch up on all the Uesugi chapters I’ve missed…

      Ilinox responded:
      April 9, 2018 at 00:47

      Same same! Kenshin is just so sweet and smooth :’))) I just love how comfortable / intimate it sounds to share an evening drink (or more like share company with Kenshin as he drinks) and the MC even mentions the taste of it on his lips– GIRL THAT’S BOLD!! Haha, I really like those 3 too :’D though I’d throw in Mitsuhide’s too because he has that sweet gentleman’s attitude. <33 You're in for a fun ride in these latest Uesugi chapters.

    JUST LIKE NAGAHIDE! AYYYEEE!!!!!💖💖💖THEY’RE EVEN IN KISSES 😘 but I thought it’s 2 for Nagahide since I didn’t count his BEASTLY BITE on the lip and now I read this tricky wolf awakening so I guess it should be counted too hehehe 😅

      Reggie said:
      April 8, 2018 at 03:38

      Oh by the way that kiss with blood sucking, isn’t like a french kiss? ٩(♡ε♡ )۶ʚ♡⃛ɞ(ू•ᴗ•ू❁)
      So far my favorite awakening story is Nagahide because his surprisingly beast mode is just right on my taste *drool* 2ND is Kenshin but of course he’s still no.1 in my heart 💖 The L4 are spicy so…… Umm…. They’re too much for me 😅 Oh except the only vamp, he’s just gentle 😊

        Ilinox responded:
        April 9, 2018 at 00:44

        Kiss monsters are the best |D;; although I think Nobunaga has just as much (?) but just hidden in the main story or his card stories rather than his awakening–. Hold on, wasn’t his kisses against her throat described as “rain of kisses” though? (Or was that in the story).

        I always assumed they just nipped her lips lmao so more like… them sucking on her lip? Rather than biting her tongue because that would be :(( tongue/inside mouth wounds take longer to heal than outside ones! But then again with them being vampires/werewolves maybe they have some kind of healing saliva or something.

        Nagahide’s charm is that he catches you off guard with how affectionate he can be underneath his no nonsense and cool exterior |D;; HAHA you gotta wait and see Masanobu’s~ the last of the L4~.

        Reggie said:
        April 10, 2018 at 07:43

        Oh you’re right, Nobunaga’s kisses is too many! Both awakening and main story, how could I forget that T_T (please Nobunaga don’t beheaded me .·´¯`(>▂<)´¯`·. Jk 😂)

        I'm willing to wait for masanobu and other remaining armies awakenings ✨

    This has such a shojou manga feel to it LOL. Especially when they’re staring into each other’s eyes and leaning in. I started giggling at the description. There’s also the fact Kenshin wants Yuzuki to stay by his side but that one interaction :’D. Regardless, I wonder if they did anything more after their kissing, huehue.

      Ilinox responded:
      April 8, 2018 at 12:58

      *waggles eyebrows* Oh man, speaking of the description though I actually had to scratch my head at the bit where they kiss because it’s written in such a way where it’s totally natural and almost poetic in Japanese but translated into English it sounded so dumb LOL. I hope I did it justice (though it was literally one throwaway line buried in the rest of the good scene so maybe it’s not as noticeable–).

      I’m sure they…………. kissed for a fourth time ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)….. and more.

        seiggy said:
        April 8, 2018 at 14:53

        ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) I’m sure they got very busy for the entire night…with probably some nice moonlight pouring through or that candle lighting LOL. Or who knows maybe Kenshin is the type to pass out or still have a lot of self-restraint even while drunk. I sort of wish we got more interactions on how the guys act when they drank too much for entertainment value, like how one of Mitsuhide’s interactions is his barging into MC’s room while drunk. I think the description is fine? I can’t really say much unless there’s a direct translation to look at lmao.
