SNB Oda ~ Chapter 10.3 ~

Chapter 10: The Arising Tumult and Hope

In order to tie an alliance with Date, the Oda Army proceeded to the area that was once the capital.

She departed with a fleeting hope that she would obtain information about Himemiko, but what awaited her along the way was…

Chapter 10.3

[YUZUKI]: “Ah…! Is this my cell phone!?”

Inside the tea kettle was the cell phone I thought I lost.

[YUZUKI]: “Could it be that you found this, Imari-kun…?”

[IMARI]: “Huh…!? Ah, I-I’m sorry!”

[IMARI]: “This small box was yours!?”

Imari-kun turned to me and bowed his head deeply.

[YUZUKI]: “Um… w-why are you apologizing?”

[IMARI]: “This was something I picked up on the day you came to Shinga. I didn’t think it was yours…”

[IMARI]: “Because it was smooth and pretty I thought to treasure it and stored it in my tea kettle.”

[IMARI]: “Uuu… it’s something I hadn’t seen before though so I should have suspected it was yours at least…”

[YUZUKI]: “No, it’s more than enough that you found it. Thank you for holding onto it carefully until now.”

I nodded with a smile and then picked up my cell phone.

The battery should have been long dead but when I picked it up the screen started to shine brightly.

[YUZUKI]: “Wha!?”

[IMARI]: “Wah, it’s so bright! What’s going on…!?”

In the next moment, the light spilling from the screen gradually changed shape and, at last, became the figure of a woman.

[YUZUKI]: “W-What…!?”

[IMARI]: “You’re…!!”

That woman looked in my direction and smiled sweetly.

[???]: “At last, I am able to speak with you…”

Her voice resounded directly in my head.

[YUZUKI]: “Er… um, you are…?”

[IMARI]: “I’ve missed you… so so much! Himemiko-sama!!”

Imari-kun yelled that as he looked at the woman.

[YUZUKI]: “Huh… this lady is Himemiko-sama!?”

[HIMEMIKO]: “Yes… I have been waiting for a long time to be able to speak with you.”

[HIMEMIKO]: “And, Imari, you have done well to find her.”

[IMARI]: “B-But… if I had been more reliable…”

[HIMEMIKO]: “Do not think that way. Imari, you have worked very hard.”

[IMARI]: “H-Himemiko-sama… waaaah!!”

Imari-kun was so moved by Himemiko-sama’s words that he started crying.

[HIMEMIKO]: “Though if you had found her slightly quicker that would have been better.”

[IMARI]: “Haugh!?”

Himemiko-sama giggled and looked at Imari-kun affectionately as he received this shock with teary eyes.

[YUZUKI]: (Is it possible that Himemiko-sama is surprisingly mischievous…?)

Just as I was thinking that, Himemiko-sama’s face became serious and she turned to me.

[HIMEMIKO]: “… Now, it appears that you two are in a pressing situation…”

[HIMEMIKO]: “However I wished to speak with you once, by any means.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…?”

[HIMEMIKO]: “Yes. This may be late, but… first, I must apologize to you.”

[HIMEMIKO]: “I apologize sincerely for summoning you to Shinga all of a sudden.”

Himemiko-sama said that and bowed her head.

[HIMEMIKO]: “However… at that time, I had no other choice…”

[YUZUKI]: “Uhm… why did you call for me in the first place?”

[HIMEMIKO]: “… I have a request.”

[YUZUKI]: “Request…?”

[HIMEMIKO]: “Yes. I want you to make this Shinga a peaceful place without conflicts once more.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…!? Why are you asking such a grand thing from me…!?”

[HIMEMIKO]: “It is natural for you to be bewildered…”

[HIMEMIKO]: “However, in order to return peace to this Shinga, the power of your blood is absolutely necessary.”

[YUZUKI]: “The power of my blood…”

[HIMEMIKO]: “Please, I beg of you, use your powers and bring peace–“

In the middle of her words, Himemiko-sama suddenly started to blur and disappear.

[IMARI]: “Ah! Why… Himemiko-sama! HIMEMIKO-SAMA!!”

Imari-kun’s shouts were in vain and the light disappeared from my cell phone.

[YUZUKI]: “What in the world… wah…!?”

Feeling a strange presence I turned around and, at the entrance of the ruined building, a yakuma was looking at us.

[YAKUMA]: “GUAAAAARGH!”

[YUZUKI]: “AHHHHHH!!”

It was such a sudden thing that, in front of the yakuma which rushed at me, I could only scream.

I closed my eyes tightly in anticipation of the worst ending, but in that instant–

[YAKUMA]: “GYAAANGH!!”

The anguished roar of the yakuma reverberated through the area.

[YUZUKI]: (… Huh? Nothing happened to me…?)

When I timidly opened my eyes, there stood…

[MITSUHIDE]: “… Are you… unharmed…?”

    The scene is almost the same as in Toyotomi, but I just realized something.
    So… does Himemiko appear like a hologram in Star Wars…?
    I guess the people of Shinga will call it magic, but we know it as technology so… hmmmmm.

    I was expecting Nobunaga to come, but I was pleasantly surprised to see Mitsuhide instead…

      Pretty much! I think Himemiko gets a few more lines here and actually acknowledges that MC and Imari are in a dangerous situation hiding from yakuma but she still needs to talk to them (thanks Himemiko LOL). I… I have no idea how Himemiko is appearing. I just assumed it was some ghostly vision but /o\ I’m wondering what happened to the cell phone afterwards. Did it become useless? Can it be used again? What’s going on!! Hahaha.

      At times it feels like Nobunaga is really too aloof |D;; and Mitsuhide is gonna steal his spot as the main lead in Oda.

        Too many things left unanswered… or maybe yet to be answered.

        I don’t mind Mitsuhide stealing the spot, hehe, but if that happens, I will be sorely disappointed in Nobunaga…

    “Are you unharmed?”
    Awww these guys of me should stop asking this question! Especially when it is from Kenshin in Toriumi’s voice and Mitsuhide in Shimazaki’s voice! Sooo gentle and soft.

    I started to think that Nobunaga and Mitsuhide might be aware of Imari’s existence but they just pretending they don’t know. Like in this situ, is there a possibility Mitsuhide can see they were talking to Himemiko? The timeline is so close.

      ;w; SUCH GOOD GUYS. Always putting the MC first and foremost. And omg I agree to how soft Toriumi and Shimazaki’s voice can be when they say these lines.

      ME TOO. I refuse to believe that someone as sharp as Nobunaga doesn’t notice or smell Imari. Not to mention even before the yakuma appeared and stuff Imari was yelling so loudly for Himemiko LOL.

    A butler in a shining armor to the rescue! MITSUHIDE!!!! (灬♥ω♥灬)💞
    AND OH THANK GOD! ANOTHER MITSUHIDE GATCHA o(≧∇≦o) please Lord give me 2 5* Mitsuhide this time! 🙏

      We can always count on Mitsuhide to be here <33!

      I wish… they revived the other one with Kagero's art– //bricked. I think I'll sit this one out if it's not an event gacha but wow Mitsuhide has been getting spoiled. I wonder if they're tracking popularity somehow (secret stats that track how many people roll per event gacha? LOL).

    Mitsuhide-san is the true knight of this route! (●♡∀♡) Haha…

    Oh man, I admit when I read this chapter the first time I was surprised that Himemiko actually appeared in a way. I thought they’d leave her be a legend or something.
    Also I am kind of “meh” about the phone and how it was used to show Himemiko. What the hell, writers? xD At least use the sacred treasures that you collected xD I guess now the phone can be part of the sacred treasure collection, too, haha.

      Ilinox responded:

      If Nobunaga isn’t careful Mitsuhide will steal the spotlight from being the main lead in Oda’s route– //bricked. I love how considerate of the heroine he is kjfghjfgh and it feels like super genuine and coming from him personally compared to the rest who seem to just like her on the basis of Nobunaga approving of her. It just feels that way to me because we got to hear about Mitsuhide’s past and the heroine helped him overcome it with some inspiring words.

      SAME. I thought we were going to forever track down hints and mysteries of what Himemiko did in the past. With her actually appearing, uhhhhhh, hmmm, really curious as to where this is gonna go. I also thought they’d collect the other sacred treasures or those treasures would point to each other but somehow Oda’s treasure went from pointing to Toyotomi to Mouri? Or past Toyotomi to Mouri?

      (Meanwhile, why does it feel like Uesugi and Takeda have completely forgotten about their sacred treasures LOL because Uesugi’s goes to Date but they’re uh… not going there.)

      EDIT: I wonder if the phone is dead for real now and it was just a one-time summoning of Himemiko. Or is it now going to be an occasional “call a friend” line LOL. Sacred treasure indeed.

        He is so soft I am afraid he’d fall apart once you touch him. And he’s the softest when the original artist draws him <3

        Somehow my mind went into the trashbin after this phone incident xDDD Now I imagine Himemiko calling the heroine once in a while and talk dirt about the guys hahaha~
        "Oh yea, sorry, can you fill in? I kinda created this vampire/werewolf and demon harem but now I am tired of them but I can't let them alone, pls help"

        I was under the heavy impression that Himemiko disappeared some long time ago but since Imari is kind of a pretty young character it could not be THAT long. Oh well. Whatever I will have to eat what the writers give us… I would have chosen the classic way and kept Himemiko a mystery until the very end/climax though. Feels kind of better to me.

        Yeah, who even cares about sacred treasures lol

        Same about Himemiko’s disappearance. I thought it was centuries ago since at MC and Nobunaga’s first meeting he said a “long asleep instinct is stirring” so it sounds like it’s been ages? But then in Toyotomi route Imari talks about how Mouri Motonari marched on the capital where Himemiko was and uhh last time I checked Motonari wasn’t centuries old LOL. I mean I don’t think they ever mentioned exactly how old these guys are… oh no, maybe they’re like immortal or something. Maybe Motonari IS like 100+ years old o__o.

        Lmao grandfather Motonari… He could be xDDD but I don’t want to imagine that somehow. >.<
