SNB Date ~ Chapter 10.1 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 10: At the End of Schemes, Hope is Connected–

Utilizing the seal case discovered in the destroyed town to make use of other armies, Masamune plans to aim at Mouri territory.

Furthermore, as if seeing an opportunity, a messenger arrives from the Uesugi Army. This also appears to be Masamune’s scheme…

Chapter 10.1

When we went to the main hall to participate in the war council, everyone had already gathered. It looked like we were the very last ones.

[YUZUKI]: “Sorry for being late.”

[KOJUUROU]: “No, not at all. We had also just gathered here.”

[IMARI]: “I’m glad we seemed to have made it in time!”

.[YUZUKI]: “Mhm, looks like it.”

[MASAMUNE]: “… Hurry and sit, we’re starting.”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, okay!”

After confirming that Imari-kun and I were sitting in empty seats, Masamune-san opened his mouth.

[MASAMUNE]: “Our next mark is decided… We’re going to Mouri territory.”

Everyone in the room, including me, widened their eyes in surprise at Masamune-san’s astounding proposal.

[SHIGEZANE]: “Why’re we going to Mouri! Weren’t you the one who said the seal case wasn’t evidence that Mouri was at the capital?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Aa. Even if we run the risk and head to Mouri, we might not obtain any information related to Himemiko.”

[YUZUKI]: “… And that’s why we’re doing it, right?”

When I glanced at Masamune-san’s face, he was looking at me with a somewhat offended expression.

[YUZUKI]: (Huh, did I say something I shouldn’t have…?)

[MASAMUNE]: “What, you have a problem?”

[YUZUKI]: “No… I just thought it was you being you as usual, Masamune-san.”


Masamune-san turned his head away from me and continued talking.

[MASAMUNE]: “… I’m not just choosing this path because it’s the worst choice.”

[YUZUKI]: “What do you mean…?”

[MASAMUNE]: “In order to move the other armies at our will, we ourselves need to move.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Even though we’re spreading rumors about the Mouri Army holding a clue to Himemiko–“

[MASAMUNE]: “If we don’t head to Mouri, there’ll be no credibility.”

[KOJUUROU]: “… But, Masamune, supposing our objective is Mouri, how are we to proceed from there?”

Shigezane-san, hearing Kojuurou-san’s words, hummed while tracing the map of Shinga that was spread out on the floor with a finger.

[SHIGEZANE]: “Let’s seee, to get to Mouri we need to…?”

[KOJUUROU]: “It’s necessary to cross Oda and Toyotomi. However, as might be expected, if we oppose a number of armies we cannot attack from the front.”

[KOJUUROU]: “If we make a poor move, we will be destroyed in no time.”

[MASAMUNE]: “No, there’s no need to invade from the front.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Then what’re we gonna do?”

Masamune-san opened his mouth, full of confidence, at Shigezane-san’s words–

[MASAMUNE]: “First, we’ll move Uesugi.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Huh? Uesugi?”

[MASAMUNE]: “That’s right. Before long, Uesugi will come to probe our state of affairs.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Because I took measures to ensure that they’d do that.”

[KOJUUROU]: “I see. Certainly, when you consider how we made such a fuss to see their territory and then returned home so easily…”

[KOJUUROU]: “They would think we finished our task in Uesugi.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Wait, hold on, Masamune.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “I get that the Uesugi Army is going to come searching us out, but what’re you going to do from there?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Heh, just watch.”

Shigezane-san didn’t seem convinced by Masamune-san’s smirk and his words.

I also didn’t understand Masamune-san’s intentions very well and just as I tilted my head with Shigezane-san–

[DATE ARMY SOLDIER]: “Masamune-sama, excuse my intrusion during your war council!”

[MASAMUNE]: “What’s the matter?”

[DATE ARMY SOLDIER]: “Reporting. In fact… a messenger from Uesugi came!”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha…”

[YUZUKI]: (That’s sudden…?)

Looking at the messenger who came rushing in a hurry, everyone in the room glanced at each other–

[MASAMUNE]: “I see. Good work, you’re dismissed.”

[DATE ARMY SOLDIER]: “Yes, my lord! Excuse me!”

[MASAMUNE]: “… So they came, huh.”

Only Masamune-san, who said this and smiled, seemed to know that this would happen.

(T/N: I’m translating as I read these so once again I’m in the dark with everyone. Oh how I missed Masamune’s ruthless schemes :’) and it warms my heart to see the Date!Heroine being on the same wavelength as Masamune LOL she gets him. In other (sad) news though, Umehara – Masamune’s seiyuu – was recently hospitalized with ADEM which is extremely serious sounding ;;;;; and I hope everyone can keep him in their thoughts and send him good vibes for a speedy recovery.)

    Umehara-san, best wishes for your recovery… TT___TT

    He’s been doing a lot of seiyuu work, hopefully they can put them on hold for him.
    But then again, I wonder if some of them have to be replaced…? TT___TT
    I feel like lately, I keep hearing bad news here and there… orz

      T___T yeah I think he was actually at the part where he was getting casted in tons of projects because he was on the rise and now this jhkfgjkhjfgh it sucks if they have to be replaced (I keep remembering that one Enstars thing and oh man there was a horrible reaction from the fans) but when they’re not sure how long the recovery period is… I just hope he makes a complete recovery no matter how long it takes.

      Ahaha, bad news sticks in our head longer but uhh Toyonaga and his wife recently had a daughter I think? :D If that counts as good news–

    *sobs* Plz get well soon Umehara-san… *sobs*
    And yeah, that’s a serious disease, and I don’t really want to think about it now (even when I comment in here, I don’t want to remember that)

    Still in the topic about Umehara, he’s one of my favorite seiyuus, and when I search about his voice role, he also voices Kamitani from Gakuen Babysisters, I almost didn’t recognize the same accent and intonation, but yeah I’m really like Umehara voice…

    Back to the topic… Tbh, I don’t really know what to say after this sad news, but yeah… Every part 1 always too shorts I think(?), I can’t wait for other parts~!!!

    As always, thank you for your hard works~! ^^
    *praying for Umehara’s recovery*

        Yeah, I got the news on 10 May, and that’s really shocked me a lot. It’s truly a serious disease, since it related with brain’s nervous (ugh I don’t want to think about it again *sobs*)

        Get well soon Umehara-san… *sobs*

        Oops, I didn’t realize how sad this news would make the comment place hkfgjhkfgjh it sounded like it was caught early and so him resting now and being treated means he’ll be back before you know it!! ;3; I have to admit I didn’t pay much attention to him until this Masamune role and then he started catching my attention more and more.

        I actually think the chapters are getting shorter; it’s not just everyone’s imagination! Date used to have 130 lines per chapter part but now each part barely hits 60~ so it’s like half the usual amount. I wonder if they’re slowing down or there’s just tons of set up happening, hmm.

        Thank you for commenting!

    The first parts of the chapters are always so short, I always want to read more.

    I hope Umehara gets better soon T.T I can not really imagine Masamune with another voice.

      Haha, they’re starting to resemble teasers more and more /o\. I can’t imagine it either so I’m also hoping they just put Masamune/Date on hold until Umehara comes back, no matter how long it takes. His health does come first after all!

    I’m so shocked when I read Umehara is in hospitalized. I heard the disease long before but I forgot it because it has too long name. I wish for Umehara’s safety and recovery. I wonder who will substitutes him as Masamune while his in recovering state.

    I still don’t have guts to open chapter 10 because of the news.

      Ilinox responded:
      May 13, 2018 at 14:22

      Yeah ;;;; I thought it was going to be something throat-related since a lot of seiyuu seem to have those issues (I don’t blame them) but when I looked it up I was shocked by how uncommon and serious it was. I hope he takes as long as he needs to recover!

      I set Masamune as my cover leader and it just made me sadder :’)) hearing Masamune say things like “let’s work hard today” made me want to be like NO UMEHARA I HOPE YOU’RE HAVING A GOOD AND RESTFUL DAY!! And that treatment goes smoothly and pleasantly.

    It’s just the first of chapter 10 but I’m stressed already.

    I hope Umehara is getting better very soon. This news really shock me ;(

      Ilinox responded:
      May 12, 2018 at 15:26

      Me too!! ;;;;;;;; Masamune is too good at keeping everyone in suspense. Even Shigezane and Kojuurou are like ?!!? but oh man why does it sound like Masamune set up EVERYTHING in everyone’s route because he keeps spreading rumors about poor Mouri LOL.

    i couldnt find any channel in youtube regarding date’s route chapter 10. but thank you @ilinox for the trasnlation

    i immediately google about ADEM, im worried. it’s a scary disease. i hope date’s seiyuu will pull through.

    date’s seiyuu is Umehara Yuichiro. aside from being date’s voice, he also voices goro in darling x franxx

    i wonder who’s going to be his substitute while he is going to take an indefinite hiatus from work

      You’re welcome! It was just updated like two days ago so it’s probably too new to have any uploads/recordings yet on YouTube.

      Yeah ;;; I was really surprised to hear about it too and when I looked it up since it sounds like an uncommon things too. It’s nice to see how many people are wishing for his recovery though ;3; including other seiyuu, who have been tweeting nice messages.
