SNB Date ~ Chapter 10.3 ~

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 10.3

By the time we finished the discussion with Kenshin-san and returned to the castle, it was night.

In the end, Shigezane-san had been deep in thought the entire way back and didn’t seem to have resolved his questions–

[SHIGEZANE]: “Hey, Masamune, whether we go with Uesugi or Takeda, isn’t it gonna be hard for us to get information on Himemiko?”

[MASAMUNE]: “No, I have a plan. The current situation will soon start to move according to my expectations–“

.[DATE ARMY SOLDIER]: “Masamune-sama, reporting! It appears that Uesugi and Takeda have tied an alliance!”

[DATE ARMY SOLDIER]: “That is not all, Oda and Toyotomi also seem to be moving in an alliance.”

[MASAMUNE]: “I see, good work. You may leave now.”

[DATE ARMY SOLDIER]: “Yes, my lord! Please excuse me.”

After the messenger who reported that information left, the corner of Masamune-san’s lips lifted in a smirk.

[MASAMUNE]: “… The actors have gathered.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Huh? No way… did you know this would happen and acted on that, Masamune.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Naturally. What did you think I was moving Uesugi for?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Also, that those vampires joined in an alliance must be because they suspect something.”

[MASAMUNE]: “… That is why we’ll be tying an alliance with Oda from here.”

[YUZUKI]: (Huh…?)

I instinctively doubted my ears at Masamune-san’s unexpected words.

Shigezane-san seemed to be the same as well–

[SHIGEZANE]: “Wha!? Why Oda?! We aren’t joining the werewolves?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Hmph… I complied with the talks because it was necessary for the plan, but no one said we would be allying ourselves with the other werewolves.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Well, that’s true but… at that time, wasn’t it flowing in that direction?”

[MASAMUNE]: “… What we are aiming for is Mouri territory in the end.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “No, no, that’s not an explanation!”

[KOJUUROU]: “Hmm… not joining with the werewolves but with the vampires… huh.”

Kojuurou-san seemed to realize something and was thinking quietly by himself.

[YUZUKI]: (I wonder why we’re especially going with the vampires… Oda and Toyotomi? Huh…? If I remember correctly…)

[YUZUKI]: “You said Mouri territory is even farther beyond Oda territory and Toyotomi territory, right…?”

At my words, Masamune-san looked at me.

[MASAMUNE]: “… Aa, that’s right.”

Hearing those words, a single thought came to mind.

[YUZUKI]: “Erm… meaning, if we’re aiming for Mouri, we can’t pass through those two armies. –But if we join them…”

[YUZUKI]: “We can go to Mouri territory without fighting, or something… I-I’m sorry. I’m just coming up with my own guesses…”

[KOJUUROU]: “No, I was thinking the same. If aiming for Mouri is our top priority then we should avoid battles as much as possible.”

[KOJUUROU]: “And joining the vampires would increase that possibility.”

[MASAMUNE]: “… You’ve put it very simply.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Masamune’s reaction… means what this girl said was right, huh!”

[MASAMUNE]: “Hn…”

[SHIGEZANE]: “So she really is right! That’s amazing to be able to read Masamune’s contrary thoughts.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Yes, truly. From now on, it seems we could depend on you as a strategist.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh, no way! You two are exaggerating…”

[MASAMUNE]: “Exactly. Being able to do this is natural for someone staying in my army.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “You’re saying those things again. Why don’t you honestly say you had expectations?”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Just before–“

[MASAMUNE]: “Urk, don’t say unnecessary things Shigezane…!”

[MASAMUNE]: “… You there, listen well.”

[MASAMUNE]: “From here, there is going to be a large war between werewolves and vampires which will divide Shinga in two. During this world-splitting battle, while the armies throughout Shinga are distracted–“

[MASAMUNE]: “We’ll leave the battlefield and reach Mouri territory before anyone else!”

[MASAMUNE]: “… I’ll be making you work too. You can’t just eat meals forever.”

[MASAMUNE]: “When the time comes, I’ll have you carrying out duties firmly as a member of the Date Army.”

[YUZUKI]: “…! Yes!”

I wasn’t just going to be protected anymore. More importantly, Masamune-san was seeing me for myself and not the power of my blood–

And, being recognized as a member of the Date Army, made me really happy.

(T/N: For a second I totally thought Masamune would react by smirking and being like “Good girl” at her matching train of thought. Guess he’s too tsun for that LOL. This is a cute chapter though I thought she was already… accepted as a member? Maybe before she was accepted as like a friend/nakama. Now she has an official place in the army?)

    Kenshin’s dream to be allied with Shingen comes true because of Masamune 💖

      LOL I suppose that’s one way to look at it, though Uesugi and Takeda making an alliance makes me wince at all the people who have died in their battles up to now because… :((

    Masamune : “… The actors has gathered”

    Okay, that’s really amusing line y’know, Masamune. Good job~!
    *still praying for Umehara’s recovery**sobs*
    And, Shigezane, you took my lines! Another good job~! You make Masamune blushing, fufufu

    As always, thank you for your hard works~! ^^

      Every time Masamune comes up with these mastermind plans I’m so in awe and amused. He’s using the power of rumors and gossip to its fullest. MC and Masamune are of one mind since she can read him now~, heehee.

      Aww, and as always thank you for commenting!!

    LOL he did set up this plan, join the vampire party and let them fight werewolves and then enter Mouri territory. This reminds me of when they made an alliance with Uesugi and let them fight Takeda and they went through that cave to found that sealed case. What a tricky plan.

    I’m happy with MC that she’s finally officially accepted as a member of Date. Go go girl!

      Masamune has no loyalty to anything or anyone but himself and his army |D;; I love how he’s pretty much going to use everyone that we know to get to Mouri. I’m really curious how the other armies will deal with this when you’re in their route because I can’t see Nobunaga not suspecting Masamune of something.

      Honestly, every time MC guesses Masamune’s thoughts and follows along with these strategies I’m just so proud of her and I bet Masamune is inwardly pleased too LOL. She’s being influenced by them slowly.

    I wonder how the generals of all other armies will react if they know they are playing into Masamune’s hands… Heh.

    [SHIGEZANE]: “So she really is right! That’s amazing to be able to read Masamune’s contrary thoughts.”

    [SHIGEZANE]: “You’re saying those things again. Why don’t you honestly say you had expectations?”

    …Shigezane took the words out of my mouth. lol
    Then again, it’s amazing Shigezane can say how contrary and not honest Masamune he is… in Masamune’s face.

      Shigezane is the MVP for calling out all of Masamune’s lies right in his face in front of everyone LOL. But oh man I wonder about the same thing and like I knew Masamune was playing with the Mouri rumors but to think he encouraged Uesugi to join with Takeda and then Oda and Toyotomi naturally followed because they were feeling threatened by Uesugi/Takeda (who did that because of rumors about Oda and Toyotomi) is just !!! Masamune is a mastermind here.

    what the heck it took her 10 chapters to officially be seen as a member of Date???!!! *give Masamune the stinky eye, whispering “…dude why??”*

    aaaa I’m so excited if we’re gonna see Masamune vs. Nobunaga or not
    (the game’s on maintenance update atm I really hope they’re gonna give us Mouri ch5 soon.)

    p/s: Ili you forgot to hide the post under a cut

      I kinda scratched my head at this scene because in 9.4 didn’t he say “you’re one of us” so ???. Maybe there’s a difference between 仲間 and 伊達軍の一員として that I’m not seeing LOL. One’s being considered a comrade and part of them or like a friend. The other is an official working member of the army??

      Getting so cloooose to Masamune and Nobunaga and Hideyoshi (?) meeting!! Okay, this time they HAVE to update Mouri what with everyone literally being on the tip of heading into Mouri territory, lmao.

      Gah, I always forget about that sometimes because I’m checking dates and tags and the preview doesn’t show the cut either way ><.
