SNB Oda ~ Chapter 10.5 ~

Posted on Updated on

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 10.5

When we returned into the main hall, Nagahide-san was glaring at the aforementioned letter with a complicated look.

[NAGAHIDE]: “… Nobunaga-sama!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “… Who is the letter from.”

.[NAGAHIDE]: “It… is only addressed to “Lord Oda Nobunaga”. The sender is unknown.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Because it is addressed to you, Nobunaga-sama, I of course have not opened it…”

[NAGAHIDE]: “And was in the middle of searching for clues as to whether or not it was safe to pass on.”

[RANMARU]: “Such a suspicious thing might have something lying underneath. It should be disposed!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “No matter. Hand it here. I have a guess as to who wrote it.”

Nobunaga-san took the letter from Nagahide-san and broke the seal without hesitation.

As everyone held their breath and watched, there on the opened paper was– a brilliant white.

[YUZUKI]: “Huh!? Pure white…? There’s nothing written!?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “… No.”

Nobunaga-san slowly turned the wrapping paper the other way. When he did, there seemed to be a figure of sorts–

[MITSUHIDE]: “These are the family crests of Uesugi and Takeda…”

On the back of the wrapping paper there was a drawing of the crests of both clans – Uesugi and Takeda – bound together by rope.

[NOBUNAGA]: “… I see.”

[YUZUKI]: (I see, he said… but I don’t understand anything at all…)

[MITSUHIDE]: “This is a surprise. To think they would be the ones…”

[NAGAHIDE]: “… Yeah.”

[RANMARU]: “So that’s how it is…”

It wasn’t just Mitsuhide-san and Nagahide-san, but also Ranmaru-kun who seemed to realize what the purpose of the letter was.

[YUZUKI]: “U-Um! Excuse me… what exactly is this letter trying to say…”

[KATSUIE]: “Yeah, I don’t get it either! What’s it mean, hey!”

[NAGAHIDE]: “This is a notice from Date Masamune.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “It’s to tell Nobunaga-sama that Date is not going to side with Uesugi and Takeda and that they’ll be joining Oda.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh! Joining Oda… that means they’ll ally themselves with Nobunaga-san and everyone…!?”

[KATSUIE]: “… Hey, if it’s such important news, then not writing anything– what’s up with that!?”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Think about what’d happen if it was stolen by another army along the way. It’d be revealed that Date is standing with Oda. But, well… it’s reasonable to be surprised at this sudden development.”

[NAGAHIDE]: “Because we thought getting an alliance with Date would be quite hard…”

[NOBUNAGA]: “… Future worries can be dismissed with this.”

Everyone became quiet and waited for Nobunaga-san’s next words.

[NOBUNAGA]: “Mitsuhide, how is the monkey moving?”

[MITSUHIDE]: “Presently, he is proceeding with preparations to march towards Mouri territory.”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Good, then it would be a pity to miss this opportunity.”

[MITSUHIDE]: “You mean…!?”

Nobunaga-san inclined his head and declared this.

[NOBUNAGA]: “In accordance with the light of the sacred treasure, we shall also advance and strike at Mouri… Begin war preparations.”

[THE FOUR]: “Yes, my lord…!”

While everyone dispersed and left, I could only be at a loss at this sudden turn–

However, I was able to be certain of only one fact– that a large battle would start in the future.

        It’s basically the second season/stage of the game where all the armies are now at the brink of a huge war. I haven’t decided yet on want to call it but I’ll probably change that awkward wording of Chapter 2: 1.1, haha.

        It’ll be up whenever I get around to translating it /o\ which is after the Mouri army gets caught up with their 5.5 story, their awakenings, etc.

    Omfg this chapter gives me goosebumps. Although Katsuie being there to ask about the situation with Yuzuki kinda defused those feelings pffft. Oh Katsuie you cinnamon roll you don’t ever change….

      It’s such a good setup for the next arc huh :’)) I haven’t touched any of the second season stories at all because I’m trying to catch everyone else up with the first season stuff but oh boy I hope everyone’s going to be okay… (I say this but I also hope that, depending on which army we’re reading about currently, the other armies will suffer actual consequences and losses).

      Katsuie’s there to make sure Yuzuki, and us in correlation, don’t feel stupid at not being able to follow along LOL. Cause if both of them don’t understand then someone will explain for them :’D.

      Ehehe, it really seems to have subtle and almost sinister undertone, huh, what with everyone making preparations behind the scenes and having their own goals. Honestly, I’m just expecting this “alliance” between Oda, Toyotomi, and now Date, to just burn up in flames immediately the moment they step into Mouri territory LOL the leaders of these three armies are brutally ruthless and they’re all schemers.

    *shakes my fist at the general direction to Senbura game* IF YOU DON’T UPDATE MOURI ROUTE THIS TIME AROUND!!!!!!

    p/s: @Ilinox, I’m sure you’ve seen it on twitter buT THAT NEW EVENT GACHA WITH UR HIDEYOSHI THO!!

      Ilinox responded:
      April 29, 2018 at 10:29

      LOL RIGHT? They’re probably going to update Sanada and Date next to bump them to chapter 10 but after that HONESTLY GIVE MOURI SOME LOVE!! WHAT’S THE POINT! Also, if they’re dragging Mouri behind for so long I wonder if they have plans for another clan (Tokugawa?) because the lack of symmetry in the story menu is making me squint my eyes, hahaha.

      Edit: I DID AND I’M SO ANGRY!! HOW COULD THEY DO THAT TO ME!! I’ve already done my ten roll though and I got everything but 5* Hideyoshi but that’s my limit so :’D GOODBYE.

    *getting goosebump* I’m so worried about the future war. I hope each armies will join and tied alliance to each others. It’s hard to be calm when i realized the possibility each armies will lose some comrades.

      Ilinox responded:
      April 29, 2018 at 10:28

      Ahaha, I actually want the army we’re with to win in a bloody way :”D cause I just feel like it’ll be so anticlimactic if they all have to unite to fight some enormous yakuma threat, especially when each of the leaders has such a burning ambition to ruling Shinga. I’m ready for some conflict!!

    Battles everywhere ;w; Alliances forming… I feel like I want a break an something fluffy and cute. Pls don’t die, everyone!

      Gosh, I’m soooooo interested to see all the leaders interacting with Motonari now because his personality is still hard for me to grasp and like he’s so infamous in Shinga. This is gonna be bad with everyone colliding hjshjshjfgh. At least we’ll always have events / card stories for fluffiness :’D

      @reggie

      i think i can understand why katsuie couldnt get it

        I was in the same boat as the two of them with being utterly confused as to what that was supposed to mean LOL couldn’t Masamune have made it easier to understand. But I guess if Nobunaga, Mitsuhide, Nagahide, and Ranmaru understand… we’re the minority :’D

        THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM IS TOO LONG. IT’S GONNA BE A BIG STORM.
