SNB Toyotomi ~ Chapter 10.3 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 10: Forward

The information brought by Kanbee who returned from his reconnaissance was that Date and Oda had made contact behind-the-scenes.

Realizing that it was in order to attack Mouri, the decision that Hideyoshi made was…?

Chapter 10.3

Several days later, after the march towards Mouri territory was decided. Inside the castle, war preparations were proceeding steadily.

When I was putting together my traveling bag in my room, the sliding screen opened awkwardly.

[IMARI]: “… Excuse, me!”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh… Imari-kun!? What happened to you!”

The person who entered in a tattered state was Imari-kun.

[YUZUKI]: “It doesn’t look like you’re hurt too badly, but… are you okay?”

[IMARI]: “Yes. This is nothing!”

[YUZUKI]: “That’s good then… Where in the world have you been ’till now?”

[IMARI]: “I kept going in the direction of the light shown by the sacred treasure. But, in the end, I couldn’t find anything…”

Imari-kun said that, looking piteous.

[YUZUKI]: (Come to think of it, the moment I said where the light of the sacred treasure was pointing, Imari-kun flew off as fast as he could go.)

But, if I remembered correctly, that was before Hideyoshi-san had made an alliance with Nobunaga-san.

[YUZUKI]: (Imari-kun was looking for clues to Himemiko-sama alone for such a long time…)

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun, I’m sorry. I haven’t been able to help you much…”

[IMARI]: “Not at all! Haven’t you been searching for clues in places that I’m not able to!?”

At Imari-kun’s words I remembered it was said that there was a clue in Mouri territory.

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, that’s right! Actually, I have new information about Himemiko-sama!”

I explained everything to Imari-kun, including the situation of the Toyotomi Army right now.

[YUZUKI]: “Toyotomi and Oda have tied an alliance… and they’re now preparing to go to Mouri territory…!?”

[IMARI]: “How did things change so much…!?”

[YUZUKI]: “Well… thinking back, everything’s been full of surprises, huh. No wonder you’re surprised, Imari-kun…”

It was all that I could do to concentrate on what was in front of me that I didn’t notice, but I felt reassured by Imari-kun’s reaction just now.

[YUZUKI]: “On that though… what do you think about there being a clue to Himemiko-sama in Mouri territory, Imari-kun?”

[IMARI]: “Right… if the source of information was Oda then it seems highly credible…”

[IMARI]: “Besides, I haven’t gone into Mouri territory yet either…”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh, really?”

[IMARI]: “Yep. Mouri is a terrifying clan that once sent troops towards the capital.”

[YUZUKI]: “The capital… if I’m not mistaken, the one where Himemiko-sama was?”

[IMARI]: “Exactly. The general, Mouri Motonari, was not afraid of Himemiko-sama’s power and marched on the capital.”

[IMARI]: “But… for some reason along the way the Mouri Army suddenly returned back to their own territory.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Then the capital and Himemiko-sama were safe?”

[IMARI]: “Yes… but, strictly speaking, things were fine up to then.”

[IMARI]: “Soon after Mouri Motonari returned to his own territory, Himemiko-sama disappeared…”

[IMARI]: “So, if it’s Mouri Motonari then, even if he had information about the disappearance of Himemiko-sama, it wouldn’t be strange.”

[IMARI]: “… No, maybe he’s hiding Himemiko-sama in Mouri territory…!?”

[IMARI]: “Ah! Somehow, I feel like that’s the case…!”

[YUZUKI]: “… I-Imari-kun, calm down a bit…”

I tried to soothe Imari-kun, who was getting more and more excited, by placing a hand on his shoulder but then–

Instead, Imari-kun grabbed my hand firmly and looked up at me with stubborn eyes.

[YUZUKI]: “Huhh? W-What’s wrong?”

[IMARI]: “Um, I beg of you, please take me with you guys to Mouri territory!”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha! With us… it sounds like it’ll turn into a war so it’s dangerous…!”

[IMARI]: “I’m scared to get close to Mouri Motonari alone when he threatened the capital once, but…”

[IMARI]: “If I’m together with you then I can bring out enough courage to go to Mouri territory.”

[IMARI]: “And I have a responsibility to protect you…!”

[YUZUKI]: “… Mm. Okay.”

I couldn’t object any further in front of Imari-kun’s desperation.

[IMARI]: “Thank you so much! I don’t know how much help I’ll be but I’ll do my best for you too…!”

[YUZUKI]: “Haha, thank you. It’s reassuring to have you with me, Imari-kun. I’ll be counting on you!”

[IMARI]: “Okay! If that’s decided then… I need to prepare to go to Mouri territory!”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes. I was just in the middle of packing too.”

[IMARI]: “Then I should organize my tea kettle in case of times of emergency…”

Saying that, Imari-kun lowered the tea kettle he carried onto the tatami mat.

I wondered what was inside… When I looked over curiously at Imari-kun, what came out was–

[YUZUKI]: “Wha…!? T-That’s… my cell phone!?”

[IMARI]: “Huh? Sell-fone?”

What Imari-kun took out of his tea kettle was, without a doubt, my cell phone.

[YUZUKI]: (… And here I thought I came to this world without anything but myself…)

My cell phone didn’t look particularly broken. But the moment I accepted my cell phone from Imari-kun–

The screen activated on its own and a bright light enveloped the area.

[YUZUKI]: “Eh!? Wh, what, is this…!?”

    Hopefully they will explain how this whole phone thing works, like whether she really is in an alternate universe of the Sengoku period or she got sucked into a game app on her phone or something. Did her phone get transformed into sacred object? How does Himemeko’s powers work aside from her blood granting strength to the gekka tribe? Apparently she can enchant any object of her choosing.

    With this new chapter, it opens another can of questions as the story slowly explain whatever questions players had before. Did Kanbee successfully managed to obtain secret information without Nobunaga knowing or did Nobunaga purposely let him take it because there may be some trap prepared ahead with Mouri knowing an alliance is made that may make advances towards them and have Toyotomi take the hit instead? Then we have Date as a wild card in all of this who will no doubt try to make use of any advantages they can get their hands on. We might see the other three clans eventually in this route and Oda’s since they’re not going to sit idly by while the newly made alliance make their move.

      huh? was it mention in this route or other armies route?

        Nah, it’s just assumed since we still don’t know the full range of her powers.

      I think they’ve confirmed that she’s in an alternate universe since she’s always thinking that this place “looks” like her Sengoku period but it’s different with the werewolves, vampires, and their clothes. Dunno about her phone still though. In the anime it looked like an app on her phone that freaked out and I think in the manga she just looked at her phone and got sucked in…

      I thought Himemiko’s powers were purely blood-related too and then she just uhh disappeared as in died or sealed herself away to lock a big bad demon (like Inuyasha and the shikon-no-tama LOL). But now that Himemiko has managed to project herself from MC’s cell phone… uhh… everything’s out the window, haha. My other guess about Himemiko was her connection to the moon or something because both the vampires and werewolves seem to really like the moon (and maybe this is a bastardized version of Kaguya-hime? |D;;).

      Heehee, the reason I did Toyotomi first was because it’s always fun seeing them trying to guess Nobunaga’s intentions and then when we jump over to Oda’s side you get to see how Nobunaga is handling them / what he’s truly planned. I’m actually super eager to see Date potentially betray Oda LOL even though everyone in Oda is on their guard for that (and Nobunaga probably expects it). Gods, I really do hope we get a huge army clash though (please don’t let everyone ally together).

    OMG! She’s going back to her world!
    Well, it’s just a guess… obviously. But… that would be interesting, if only in this route.
    (I don’t want her going back in any other route, haha.)

      i would love it if there’s a plot twist something like she ended up bringing one of the guys with her back to her world

        April 20, 2018 at 19:55

        :’)) WHY SO MEAN TO HIDEYOSHI!! But oh man that’d be really interesting if they did something like that. To be honest, I keep waiting for an event that teleports them to the modern world for like a day or something, haha, and then we can get modern version of all the guys (they already have modern-ish clothes from their album covers–).

        I was thinking that… If I were she, and could bring one of the guys to my world… I would very ashamed of sharing with him the lore on vampires that we have.
        First – they were ugly and bad, and everyone wanted to kill them…
        Then – they were handsome and bad… and almost everyone wanted to kill them…
        Now – they are sparkling… O_o

        @cey

        sharing with him the lore on vampires

        when i was a kid, what i kn ow about vampires is they will be burnt by sunlight and killed by stake at the heart. can transform into bat?

        toyotomi clan scenario: you’re funny, yuzuki or you’re joking yuzuki

        oda clan scenario: they’ll find it insulting. i’ll be asked to shut up or worst be killed

        (Werewolves does not fare much better)

        when i was a kid they’re people who became wolf during full moon.

        maybe they’ll laugh at me. in date’s case maybe he will ignore and not bother by it

        @ilinox
        (they already have modern-ish clothes from their album covers–).

        date looks like a rocker, oda looks like the lead singer, kenshin looks like a captain, sanada looks like he’s one from boyband group, hideyoshi looks a model to me and shingen looks ____ i cant find the right term as of now

        how am i going to hide their ears in the modern world? maybe earmuffs. their teeth? let’s pretend they’re wearing fake denture

    It’s so strange why Mouri army went back to their place, it’s like Motonari predict Himemiko’s disappearance so he did not continue his march way to capital. Could it be he really knows something? I’m so excited to the next chapter about Himemiko ✨

      Ilinox responded:
      April 20, 2018 at 19:53

      Hehe, you actually learn that pretty early on in Mouri’s story |D;; I think at this rate I’ll open up a poll when I get closer to the end of Uesugi to see who people want to see next (maybe Toyotomi and Oda’s story with all these Mouri mentions will make people really want to see them lmao).

      Maybe we’ll get some answers~

        Reggie said:
        April 24, 2018 at 06:22

        Oh that would be wonderful!✨I’ll vote for Mouri because like you said I’m so curious about them too.

    I read the Oda route first and the first time the whole thing about the cellphone just !!!!! wtf of all the things???? her cellphone???!!! really??
    then I get to Toyotomi route and it happened again and… I think our Yuzuki was sucked into a game world, guys. *mind was blown*

    it’s very strange only now they mentioned the cellphone. I need to read the first chapters again if she ever mentioned having her things missing, but the manga at least mentioned it so I immediately could see they can use it as plot device much later.

      our Yuzuki was sucked into a game world

      @garden
      i prefer this one than yuzuki being time travel in history.

      if only i got sucked in the world of anime or otome, i wont mind

      they can use it as plot device much later.

      maybe her way back home

      I scratched my head when this popped up too LOL. It’s so random but, um, okay. More mysteries I guess as to what the hell Himemiko is (some kind of deity??).

      Well, considering there’s vampires and werewolves she certainly didn’t actually time-travel back into history |D;; I think they’ve accepted that it’s a parallel dimension / alternate universe. As to what her cell phone has to do with it though… ???

      It never mentions what she’s missing just that she wakes up with nothing but the clothes on her back. And so I guess she just assumes she didn’t carry anything through with her when she transported. But that does make me curious about what exactly her last memories of being in her world are. Was she looking at her phone like in the anime? Did she get hit by a truck? LOL. WHAT HAPPENED.

        @ilinox
        what the hell Himemiko is (some kind of deity??).

        my first guess is she’s human and came from same world with yuzuki

        she wakes up with nothing but the clothes on her back.

        i dont want to wake up in the other world naked. {{checks myself.}}

        what exactly her last memories of being in her world are. Was she looking at her phone like in the anime? Did she get hit by a truck? LOL. WHAT HAPPENED.

        in the anime she was meeting a friend in the cafe when she checks her phone….

    mirror

    then now we have yuzuki’s cellphone

    if we go to other armies route, we have a sword…
    but cant recall the cellphone

    i can recall the cellphone in the anime

      Ilinox responded:

      I don’t think the cell phone counts as a sacred treasure, haha.

      Oda has a dagger, Date has a sword, Uesugi has a magatama, Toyotomi has the mirror. And then I haven’t gotten around to translating these but Takeda has a necklace and Sanada has a comb/hairpin :’). Mouri is kinda special in that they don’t really have a sacred treasure but there’s a tablet of information.
