SNB Uesugi ~ Chapter 8.2 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 8: The End of the Line

She was kidnapped by the schemes of the Date Army and Kagekatsu, who came to help, was also wounded.

Furthermore, the Uesugi Army was toyed with by the Date Army’s plans, and a desperate situation approached…

Chapter 8.2

[YUZUKI]: (Kagekatsu-kun, Kanetsugu-san, and Imari-kun too…!)

Looking at Kagekatsu-kun and the others, my relief was short-lived.

[MASAMUNE]: “They’re walking with no hesitation. It’s likely they’ve realized we’re here already.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Let’s go. Kojuurou, I’m leaving the girl to you.”

Saying that, Masamune-san pulled out his sword and roughly kicked open the door of the hut.

Simultaneously, Kojuurou-san grabbed my arm and, together with Shigezane-san, they followed after Masamune-san.

[YUZUKI]: “Everyone…!”

The instant I saw Kagekatsu-kun and the others, I automatically called out.

[KANETSUGU]: “Geez, do you only have the ability to get caught? Well, whatever, just be quiet over there.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Wait, we’ll save you immediately…!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “How’d these guys know where we were? I threw off all the soldiers who were chasing me… Kojuurou, you ran away from Uesugi’s next-in-line too, right?”

[KOJUUROU]: “Yes. I confirmed no one was following us–“

At that moment, a voice rang out from Kagekatsu-kun’s feet.

[IMARI]: “I’m sorry I was sleeping and didn’t notice that the Date Army had invaded the castle…”

[IMARI]: “But please be patient just a bit more! Kenshin-san and the others are coming to save you right away!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “T-The tanuki…”

[KOJUUROU]: “Spoke!?”

Despite the two who were befuddled, Masamune alone was laughing with his shoulders shaking.

[MASAMUNE]: “Hehe… I see. We got all the humans and Gekka Tribe people, but we didn’t confirm if there was no tanuki.”

[YUZUKI]: “Then, Imari-kun, you led Kagekatsu-kun and Kanetsugu-san here…?”

[IMARI]: “Yes. If it’s me, then it’s hard to suspect me even if I follow them secretly.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “There’s no way we’d suspect something like a tanuki…”

[MASAMUNE]: “But, considering how you’ve followed us to this time, did you only bring those two here?”

[MASAMUNE]: “I can see you did not even want to waste time gathering soldiers… This girl seems to be extremely valuable.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Of course…! Give her back…!”

[MASAMUNE]: “Do you think I’d obey because you said so?”

Both of them held up their blades and glared at each other. In this explosive atmosphere, my eyes caught Kagekatsu-kun’s.

[YUZUKI]: (Kagekatsu-kun…!)

Held on to by Kojuurou-san, I could only watch over the current situation.

[KAGEKATSU]: “If you won’t release her then–“

The second Kagekatsu-kun tried to say that, looking like he would throw himself upon Masamune-san right now–

[MASAMUNE]: “… I’ll pass.”

[YUZUKI]: (Wha…!?)

Masamune-san abruptly came over to me.

[MASAMUNE]: “We’re changing how we’re doing this. Kojuurou, Shigezane, I’m leaving you two to keep them here.”

As Masamune-san said that he grabbed my arm.

[KAGEKATSU]: “…! Wait…!”

[KANETSUGU]: “As if we’d let you go…!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Woah there. I won’t let you go any farther.”

Shigezane-san pointed the tip of his sword at Kagekatsu-kun.

[KOJUUROU]: “……”

Kojuurou-san also faced Kanetsugu-san from the front and seemed to be blocking his movements.

[YUZUKI]: (Kagekatsu-kun…! Kanetsugu-san…!)

I had no choice but to start walking, dragged by Masamune-san.

I tried to escape but the more I resisted the harder Masamune-san’s hand tightened–

And, like that, we proceeded to go deep into the forest.

[YUZUKI]: (At this rate, I might really be taken to Date territory.)

Thinking that, I gave up on resisting by force, and I decided to use another way to draw his attention and delay his feet.

[YUZUKI]: “What are you planning to do from here?”

[MASAMUNE]: “There’s no need for me to answer.”

[YUZUKI]: “Are you going to return to Date territory? Uesugi territory is really huge, so how long do you think it’d take you to escape–“

[MASAMUNE]: “… Shut up.”

[YUZUKI]: “And even if you do escape, everyone from Uesugi will chase you immediately–“

At that moment, Masamune-san came to an abrupt stop.

Huh? Just when I thought that, a sword was pressed to my throat…

[MASAMUNE]: “I told you to shut up.”

[YUZUKI]: “……!”

[YUZUKI]: (I’m scared… but I can’t flinch here!)

[YUZUKI]: “Are you planning to kill me? All that effort to capture me, even taking risks, will come to nothing.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Unfortunately, I’m a contrary person. It makes me want to try and test the worst choice.”

The tip of his sword bit into my throat and a stinging pain ran through me, but I continued to stare directly at Masamune-san.

[MASAMUNE]: “… Hn, you seem to have some guts.”

[MASAMUNE]: “The next time you’re noisy, I’ll cut you without mercy. Remember that.”

I was able to be convinced from Masamune-san’s attitude when he started walking again.

[YUZUKI]: (Like I thought… Masamune-san won’t cut me.)

That one and only weakness of Masamune-san was my trump card.

[YUZUKI]: (It’d be nice if I could use that weakness somehow and stop him here…)

(T/N: I wish I recorded Shigezane and Kojuurou’s voice here too when they’re like “A TALKING TANUKI?!” lmao because they sound so shocked. THAT UMEHARA CHUCKLE PT2 THOUGH. MM.)

      But then again Imari is carrying a tea kettle and that seems kind of weird to see on a wild animal LOL.

        Oh yeah the kettle, so I guess his in kettle mode when they checking their surroundings if there’s enemy.

    All meticulously planned, they achieve kidnapping … but you did not count on Tanuki’s cunning. God that was very funny, the surprise of Shigezane and Kojuurou … I needed to hear it:


    From 5:48 onwards

    (I keep changing my account, at this moment he will not let me comment with facebook T.T)

      Hahaha, yes, that one part right there! Kojuurou’s voice when it spikes up and cracks is SO hilarious because he always speaks so calmly and with composure.

    My first thoughts:
    … He freaking laughed… °-°
    They really did missed a talking tanuki! XD I laughed so hard when the fact set in my mind. It was just as he said. They checked their enemies and humans, but missed a tanuki! XD I’m just clapping for Imari at this point. Great work, Imari! Probably the best I’ve seen as far! (Unless there’s one even better that I’ve forgotten.)

      Gotta capture ALL the Umehara chuckles– //bricked.

      It cracks me up that everyone else acted so shocked when they heard Imari speak except for Kagekatsu and now Masamune, who just straight up laughs and takes it in stride. He’s not even mad.

      Nope, I think Imari does the most work here in Uesugi |D and it is clever to have him do spy work cause no one would suspect him!

    [KANETSUGU]: “Geez, do you only have the ability to get caught? Well, whatever, just be quiet over there.”

    The first time I agree with Kanetsugu about anything. lol
    I think he’s tired having to chase her all the time. XD

    Finally! Imari is useful! |D

      Ahaha, Kanetsugu is pretty great in this scene :’D but that’s only because he gets to freely insult the Date army LOL. I think I mentioned before that Uesugi felt like a princess story because of how nicely she’s treated in Uesugi but it’s also because she’s kidnapped so often HAHA. Like I get how it sets up conflict so perfectly for Kenshin but at the same time, ack, poor girl. Is it Uesugi’s fault for not having better security, or hers? |D

      I still don’t know why Imari has such a big role in the werewolf armies but he’s basically MIA in the vampires. What’s with that…

        OH YEAH RIGHT. Princess story. lmao
        Kenshin should start questioning whether this means that fate wants them to be apart, considering the number of times they keep getting separated lol~ *inserts lines from Romeo and Juliet or such*

        I think it’s a little bit of both? Kenshin did assign people to protect her, but then again, Yuzuki really likes to go off on her own…

        Basically maybe because Imari is more comfortable with the werewolves…? They are both basically animals… In a way, the vampires are scarier too…

    When I finished reading the previous chapter the first thing that come to my mind was: “That was fast!” Then: “Imari helped them to locate her!”
    I guess I was right.

    I’m glad this time Yuzuki is being a little bit more assertive, regarding of what she can and can’t do. Still, this kills me:
    [KANETSUGU]: “Geez, do you only have the ability to get caught? Well, whatever, just be quiet over there.”
    LOL

      Ilinox responded:

      :D Imari is actually being super useful in Uesugi’s route compared to how he just stands on the side in Date and he’s completely missing in Oda and Toyotomi LOL.

      I think she’s getting a lot of practice in being a hostage :’) but omg yes I chuckled at Kanetsugu’s line too because that’s what we’re all thinking.

    I remember first reading this chapter and had to clap for Yuzuki for continuously poking onto Masamune’s patience and annoy him so much for him to reveal how far he planned to use her. That was pretty risky but good job, my girl.

    p/s: I enjoyed reading your Rouge et Noir data book tweets♥ I really wanted to get a copy for myself but thinking I freaking can’t read all that much it might just be a waste on me >_< so thank you so much for sharing some previews!

      SAME and I was also really impressed with the set up because with every other character you’d feel reassured with gambling on MC’s use as a power source a la Himemiko to stop all the other leaders from doing something awful. I guess you could argue that a fate worse than death could be in store for her with Nobunaga LOL but Masamune has to be the only leader who’s like “psh, I’m tempted to kill you just because it’s a horrible idea”.

      AHHHH I feel a little bad for people who were spammed by my infinite chains BUT HOLY SHIT I’M SO SHOOK OVER ARLEN. GODS I LOVE HIM SO MUCH?? HE JUST. ALL THIS BACK STORY. I loved his CD because the setup was so great but now that we see his inner thoughts I’m just. THE ELEGANCE AND POISON. SHRIEKS.
