SNB Date ~ Chapter 10.4 ~

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 10.4

In the evening of the next day, after Masamune-san revealed his large-scale plan to tie an alliance with the Oda Army and use the massive war that would occur in the future to head to Mouri.

We gathered in a room to talk and, while doing so, Masamune-san passed a single letter and wrapping paper to Kojuurou-san.

[MASAMUNE]: “Kojuurou, prepare a messenger.”

.[KOJUUROU]: “A messenger…? For war preparations?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Well, you can consider it that.”

[MASAMUNE]: “First, wrap this letter in that paper, then place it in a letter box with the Date crest on it, and hand it over to Oda Nobunaga.”

[KOJUUROU]: “… What is this?”

[MASAMUNE]: “You only need to do as I say.”

[MASAMUNE]: “If Nobunaga is as sharp and able as the rumors say, then he should understand my intention.”

[MASAMUNE]: “If he doesn’t understand then… he’d just be a man whose limit was that.”

In the meantime, when Kojuurou-san opened the wrapping paper he was handed, there were two designs drawn inside.

[YUZUKI]: (I wonder what those two patterns are…?)

[KOJUUROU]: “These crests… Uesugi and Takeda?”

When I looked closer, those two crests seemed to be bound with something like a rope.

[MASAMUNE]: “Put those designs inside and wrap it in the letter, so that they’ll be the first thing that’s visible when it’s opened.”

[MASAMUNE]: “… With this all the stones have been set. Now we only have to wait.”

Masamune-san smirked and turned on his heel to leave the room.

Already, in the evening of this day, preparations for provisions of the next battle were steadily proceeding.

During this, when I went out to the courtyard with Imari-kun, Shigezane-san was casually exercising his horse.

[SHIGEZANE]: “Alright, this is good. I’ll be having you run a lot in the future, so work hard!”

As I watched this sight, Shigezane-san dismounted his horse and, noticing me, waved his hand.

[SHIGEZANE]: “Yo, taking a walk?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, with Imari-kun, since there’s little war preparations I can help with.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Don’t worry ’bout it! Being Imari’s babysitter is also a big help!”

[IMARI]: “T-That’s not true! If anything happens, I’ll be the one protecting her!”

Imari-kun puffed out his cheeks at being told he was being babysat.

[SHIGEZANE]: “Aah, okay, okay. My bad, don’t be so angry.”

[IMARI]: “Grr…”

[YUZUKI]: “Shigezane-san, you can’t tease him too much.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “But this guy’s so fun.”

As we continued this idle chatter, Imari-kun suddenly screamed.

[IMARI]: “UWAAAAAH!?”

When I turned around in a panic, Shigezane-san’s horse looked like it tried to mess with Imari-kun and was gnawing at his tea kettle.

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, Imari-kun!?”

[IMARI]: “PLEASE LET ME GOOO!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Hey now, if you eat that you’ll hurt your stomach!”

[YUZUKI]: “I-Is that what you’re focusing on, Shigezane-san!?”

[YUZUKI]: “A-Anyway, let go of Imari-kun. Good boy, good boy!”

[MASAMUNE]: “You lot are being noisy.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Good gracious… what is happening.”

Masamune-san and Kojuurou-san, who came from the veranda, eyed Shigezane-san suspiciously.

[SHIGEZANE]: “You got it wrong! It’s not my fault! Come on, let go I said!”

When Shigezane-san hurriedly persuaded it, the horse finally released Imari-kun.

[IMARI]: “Owowow…”

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun, are you okay?”

[IMARI]: “Y-Yes, somehow…”

In that moment, something spilled out of the tea kettle when the lid fell off after it was dropped–

[SHIGEZANE]: “Huh? What’s that?”

[KOJUUROU]: “I’ve never seen such a thing before…”

[YUZUKI]: (? I wonder what the three of them are looking at…?)

When I also took a peek at the thing everyone was observing–

[YUZUKI]: “Ah! Is that possibly…!”

[MASAMUNE]: “What, do you happen to know what it is?”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-Yes. That’s–…”

It was my cell phone, which I thought I lost when I came to Shinga.

    We’ll actually get a reaction from the army for the cellphone scenario, although I am kind of getting tired of it since Himemiko is unable to say anything substantial or get in deeper in the conversation with such poor reception that cuts off at a moment’s notice. Is her cellphone’s battery still active, then how many days, weeks, or months she’s been in Shinga? Maybe Himemiko is using magic since we still don’t know what her deal is.

    It looks like we might see the Oda-Toyotomi alliance next chapter. It will be interesting to see Yuzuki’s impression of them in Date’s route and vice versa.

      Mhm ;;;;; I understand why every army needs the Himemiko cell phone scene but oh man when you read it for the 6th time it gets… a little bit (read: very) dry. Some of them have interesting additions like /using/ her blood to bring peace instead of her blood just being necessary or something, or being summoned because of her blood, but still zzzzz please let’s just move on.

      It’s said that the battery is dead so the screen isn’t even on. It just magically lights up because of whatever Himemiko is doing. I don’t think our phones can even last a week tbh LOL because if MC was summoned as abruptly as it sounds like she was then she wouldn’t have been able to turn off her phone. My phone set on low power / do not disturb can barely last like 3 days. With email notifications and twitter and running SNB it can only do like a day or two, haha. We don’t know how long she’s been in Shinga but I think a month or so wouldn’t be strange to imagine.

      I’m seriously waiting in so much anticipation for Masamune vs. Nobunaga, hahaha. Show me more fireworks!!

    Masamune sure like writing letters with that kind of design, huh…
    If he’s not a general, I can imagine him working as a graphic designer. lol~

    LMAO. Poor Imari.
    First getting teased by Shigezane, and then by his horse…

    Finally the cellphone! But this time, the others are there… I wonder how this will play out.

      He seems to enjoy writing letters in general |D I can totally see him being like… a biographer or something too. But LOL yeah that coded message design, uhh.

      For once we actually get to see Imari and the cell phone scene in the presence of others! Up to now it’s just been Oda and Toyotomi where the MC is unexpectedly keeping her own secrets (I still don’t understand why omg are the vampires just… coded as being more villainous or something).
