SNB Date ~ Chapter 10.5 ~

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 10.5

My cell phone, which I thought I lost when I came to Shinga, came out of Imari-kun’s tea kettle.

[YUZUKI]: (Why does Imari-kun have my cell phone…?)

When I wondered about this, Imari-kun suddenly raised his voice as if he remembered something.

[IMARI]: “… Could this be one of your personal belongings?”

[YUZUKI]: “Mhm, it is. Why do you have it, Imari-kun?”

[IMARI]: “Err… actually…”

[IMARI]: “I found this the day you came to Shinga. At that time, I didn’t think it was yours…”

[IMARI]: “Because it was smooth and pretty I thought to treasure it and put it away in my tea kettle.”

[IMARI]: “Uuu… it’s nothing I’ve seen before though so I should have suspected it was yours at least once…”

[YUZUKI]: “I see… a lot of things did happen though.”

[IMARI]: “I-I’m sorry…”

[YUZUKI]: “No, it’s fine because you found it.”

When I received the cell phone from Shigezane-san, maybe because I hadn’t touched it in a while, I became somewhat nostalgic.

[YUZUKI]: (The battery must be long dead and there’s no reception though…)

As those thoughts ran through my mind, the screen suddenly began to shine dazzingly.

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…?”

[YUZUKI]: (What in the world is happening…!?)

The light rapidly became three-dimensional and gradually it began to make some sort of shape.

[SHIGEZANE]: “Woah! What is this!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Your old world has such interesting things!”

[YUZUKI]: “No, it shouldn’t have this sort of feature though…”

Eventually, a beautiful woman emerged from the light in the air.

[???]: “At last I am able to speak with you…”

It was an extremely mysterious voice, one that seemed to echo directly in my mind.

[YUZUKI]: “Umm…?”

[YUZUKI]: (Who is this woman…)

[IMARI]: “H-Himemiko-sama!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Himemiko-sama!?”

[HIMEMIKO]: “… First, I thank you, Imari, for finding this girl.”

[IMARI]: “Yes, I worked hard! Although I messed up a few times too…”

[HIMEMIKO]: “No, do not worry about that. I am truly glad I asked this of you.”

[IMARI]: “Himemiko-sama…”

After she smiled at Imari-kun, who was moved to tears, Himemiko-sama turned to face me.

[HIMEMIKO]: “I am sincerely apologetic for summoning you abruptly to this Shinga.”

[HIMEMIKO]: “However, at that time there was no other means…”

[YUZUKI]: “Um… why did you summon me though?”

[HIMEMIKO]: “That is… because I wish to request something of you.”

[YUZUKI]: “Request…?”

[HIMEMIKO]: “Yes… I want you to make Shinga a peaceful place with no conflicts once more.”

[HIMEMIKO]: “For that sake, your power is necessary. The power of your blood…”

[YUZUKI]: “Er…”

[HIMEMIKO]: “Please, I beg of you, use your powers and bring peace– Shinga–“

Himemiko-sama’s words became interrupted and she started to blur and fade.

[IMARI]: “Please wait, Himemiko-sama! HIMEMIKO-SAMA!”

Imari-kun’s shouts were in vain and the cell phone lost its light entirely.

[KOJUUROU]: “She disappeared…”

[IMARI]: “Himemiko-sama…”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Cheer up, Imari.”

[IMARI]: “Right…”

[MASAMUNE]: “… So that was Himemiko…”

While everyone was talking about Himemiko-sama, I recalled her words alone.

[YUZUKI]: (My power is necessary to end conflicts in Shinga…? I wonder if I can even do that…)

[YUZUKI]: (I feel anxious but… if that’s the reason I was called to Shinga then it’ll surely lead to finding my way home. Besides…)

[YUZUKI]: (If everyone here, who helped me, can live in peace then…!)

[YUZUKI]: “Masamune-san, Shigezane-san, Kojuurou-san.”

[YUZUKI]: “Can I impose on you all a little more in order to make Himemiko-sama’s wish come true…?”

[MASAMUNE]: “… Hn. In any case, your power is necessary until we obtain Himemiko.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “You’re saying dishonest things again, especially when you’re actually happy.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Who is…!”

[KOJUUROU]: “In order to accomplish our goal of unifying the country, we need your strength.”

[KOJUUROU]: “So it is us who should be asking if you could please lend your strength to us in the future as well.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes! Thank you for having me!”

A wish from Himemiko-sama, who disappeared. And the clue about that Himemiko-sama which may exist in–

[YUZUKI]: (Mouri…)

Although I felt a tinge of uneasiness, I was determined once again to head to Mouri territory with everyone from Date.

(T/N: SOBS this group picture kinda hurts cause we don’t know if we’ll see them all together like this again for a while… though Umehara should take as long as he needs to recover ;w; his health comes first and foremost!)

    Woohoo! Finally there’s a army close enough with Yuzuki to be there for the cellphone scene!

      Haha, IIRC there’s actually two other armies that are with Yuzuki during a cell phone scene :3c. They balance them out pretty well with some surprising armies not being there for the scene.

    *prays for Umehara’s recovery and sends him get well wishes* its really sad to hear that he has such a terrible disease….へ[ •́ ‸ •̀ ]ʋ I hope he feels better soon. I first heard about Umehara from Goro of DitF and wow he has incredible range. Goro and Masamune sound completely different from each other! Not to mention their personalities are complete opposites too…

    Reading through all of the Date chapters is making the Fire Emblem tactician in me chuckle. A round of applause for Masamune and the Date army. Despite being the smallest army amongst the groups the other armies are practically eating out of the palm of their hands. Their actions alone set off the climax leading to the Mouri arc with OR without Yuzuki/MC! and the other leaders’ seems to be none the wiser and if not in the dark is thinking of something different entirely (eyeballs Oda, Toyotomi and Takeda. Dunno if Sanada thinks something’s up, but Uesugi might have a few ideas….)

      ;w; yeah and he’s really talented! I’m so touched whenever I see other seiyuu wishing him well and talking about him too during events when he’s supposed to be there. I’m sure it’s a close circle there and everyone pretty much knows everyone else, haha.

      I LOVE ALL THE SCHEMES IN DATE. It certainly makes the strategist in me perk up and try to predict what Masamune is going to do too. I also tend to think along the same way he does too so it’s hilarious whenever our thoughts align and a truly devastating scheme gets pulled off. I didn’t realize it until you pointed out but you’re right! They pretty much yanked all the other werewolf armies into this and even get to join with Oda and Toyotomi (the power armies).

        ikr?! I read through all your translations in this order : Toyotomi – Oda – Uesugi – Takeda – Date – Sanada – Mori and well…that’s when I realized what was happening here and omfg Masamune is the Lelouch of SNB!!! Everyone’s playing right into his hands, even Nobunaga of all people!

    Ahhh, se sintió raro siendo el 18/5 y saber que Humehara está mal y escucharlo en su rol de Masamune, espero que se tome el tiempo para recuperarse y que hayan adelantado la historia en Senbura porque un cambio de seiyuu… realmente sería como pisotear las ilusiones porque Umehara es Date Masamune y sería imposible reemplazar algo así, me estoy colando y me sentí sentimental en todas las partes y esa imagen final, ay -cry in spanish- espero no me recibir mi despido X”D
    Me ha dado gracia la parte del celular, es la primera vez que lo veo porque me reservo los otros ejércitos para después, bueno, debo admitir que el ejercito de Date es mi favorito por diferentes razones y no me decepcionan!!!
    Muchas gracias por la traducción <3

      Aww, yeah, even though I bet they wanted this chapter to be heartwarming where MC and the Date army strengthens their bonds it’s also bittersweet for us because of Umehara ;w;/ hoping he makes a full recovery and takes as much time as he needs. I’m also more on the side of SNB putting Date on hold for him because it just wouldn’t be the same.

      The cellphone scene is pretty interesting when you see it for the first time but after all the other armies… haha. I hope you give them a chance too ;D if you like Date you might like the other two sneaky ones, Oda and Toyotomi. (But I know what you mean, I started with Date first because Date is family).

      <33 thank you for taking the time to comment!

    ah I just read about Umehara. well… I’m hoping the recording for his lines for Senbura had already been made prior so… probably we won’t have to miss a lot? in any case, I hope he recovers soon.

    I love that CG. I hope all the clans would have a group CG like that.

    oh have you heard Ili about Senbura’s gonna have a Switch release? I thought this would be a good excuse for me to finally own a Switch since Otomate did announced a few other interesting titles, but IDK how different or the same would it be compared to the sumaho version.

      Ilinox responded:
      May 16, 2018 at 22:38

      Mm, yeah, I wonder how far they recorded his lines. I’d imagine they might have Date events prepared but considering the next chapter requires them to go through Oda/Toyotomi and Uesugi/Takeda Ch11… that seems like two to three months away maybe? But recovery times for ADEM are like 6 months to a year IIRC. I actually would prefer they put Date on hold until Umehara gets better because getting Masamune replaced at this point would seem odd, haha. But yeah, I hope he has a smooth recovery and doesn’t stress about these roles (though it’s sad he has to put his career on hold).

      Oh yeah, now that you mention it I don’t think we’ve gotten any kind of group CG for anyone else. But then again the rest of the armies have 5 people which might make a crammed CG |D;; Date is special because they’re a family~ (shhh I know Sanada gets that theme too but!!).

      I have! I wonder what it’s going to be or just another version kinda like the PC version for SNB. They didn’t specify whether it was an actual game or what (like Ikemen Sengoku) but I really hope they don’t make it a… console game because then what’d be the point of the mobage lol. I get so confused when ongoing mobages get turned into console games.

      Sony has stopped supporting PSVita and ended production of physical games so :’)) we’re heading over to Switch now it looks like? Especially with the switch-exclusive titles. Though JP will probably still produce some otome games for PSVita (Variable Barricade, Charade Maniacs, Piofore, and Killer Strawberry are still slated for PSVita IIRC) but it looks like we’re really shifting over.

      I’m pretty neutral towards the whole console shift in general since the docking of the Switch sounds like it’d make it easy for them to have HD versions instead of things like PSVita vs PS4 (I’m also a pretty hard gamer in general so I uhh already have the Switch for other games, ehehe). Sucks for the people who thought the next console was going to be PS4 though and they got tricked LOL because Otomate backtracked on moving to the PS4 after just like two titles (Hakuouki and C:R).

    They look so cute the three together in this image, I want to eat them with kisses. Seeing Shigezane smile like that makes me want to touch his fang, it’s because he reminded me of my cat.

    Thanks for the translation.

      It’s the calm and happy times before the storm (again) ;3; and I love how peaceful and cute they look here too! Ahaha, I didn’t even notice the fang until you pointed it out. That’s cute!

    OH YES YES YES! Finally I undersrand what MC said after meet Himemiko (in this route of course)~! And, I’m agree with you since it’s really hurts to see all of them when Umehara’s still hospitalized… *sobs, get well soon Umehara-san*

    Above that… Now 16 May (in my place), it’s… TORIUMI-SAN’S BIRTHDAY~! Happy birthday, Toriumi-san (Kenshin’s seiyuu, he also voices Saitou from Hakuouki and Mikazuki Munechika from Touken Ranbu)

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

      <33 Unfortunately, it's pretty standard stuff and copies of what she said in Oda and Toyotomi (and everyone else zzz) but it's nice to finally see an army's reaction to actually seeing this light show + Himemiko.

      Aha, I'm a day late in responding to this comment but yes!! Happy birthday to Toriumi :'D I'm a bit afraid to check his age because I know all the older seiyuu are getting really old LOL. Did you know Midorikawa Hikaru (Kagemochi's voice) is 50 years old?!

        May 17, 2018 at 20:13

        Omg, seriously?! *shock*

        But yeah, if u know Heisuke’s seiyuu (Hiroyuki Yoshino), he’s born in 1974, and I don’t believe that he can make such a voice like that (kinda childish voice but a good one to listen) ^^

    That’s my baby! 😀 If we see Masamune wag his tail, meaning tails cannot lie 😂

      And the cg gives me soft expression, so precious 😳💜

        Ilinox responded:
        May 17, 2018 at 10:20

        L O L omg I actually want to see that. Like Masamune says something but then MC sees his tail wagging or his ears twitching or something. Reminds me of this otome game I played called Beyond the Future where there was a werewolf assassin (MY BOY NATE!!) and he was trying to act all tough and like “Psh, not like I really want to go with you guys” but his tail was wagging crazily behind him. And then a party member tells the heroine to just suddenly shout out “SIT BOY” and Nate does that automatically HAHA. I bet the werewolves would be so unamused if MC tried to throw sticks and see if they feel the urge to go and grab it though– they’re wolves!! not dogs!! |D

        I love this group CG too ;w; a fitting send off for Date ch10 and being potentially put on hold for Umehara.

      Give it some time and I’m sure it’ll pop up soon! Or you might have to do a search in Japanese, haha. Looks like someone uploaded 1-3 and then separately 4-5.

    Ow, that’s a nice picture though. We see them in their typical expressions. Kojuurou smiling, Shigezane looking excited, and Masamune frowning. lol.

    [MASAMUNE]: “… Hn. In any case, your power is necessary until we obtain Himemiko.”
    [SHIGEZANE]: “You’re saying dishonest things again, especially when you’re actually happy.”
    [MASAMUNE]: “Who is…!”

    Again, hail Shigezane!! lmaoooo

      May 17, 2018 at 10:16

      Group pictures always have to sum up all the characters at once glance |D;; I wanna see Masamune smiling genuinely though sOBS I think even all his cards have him smirking. Honestly, only Shigezane can ever pull that off what with being Masamune’s cousin and all that LOL the two squabble like puppies, it’s so cute.

    YAY!!! I’m literally trying not to scream out loud in my bed. This is totally worth staying up.to see this update! Finally a scene where they get to see the princess! Though I was hoping to see a better reaction out of Masamune, this was really good already! I’m so happy to have seen this update! THANK YOU!!! So excited! XD XD XD

      Oh no, make sure to get your beauty sleep still! |D You can always read these posts whenever and I don’t want you to stay up when I just queue them for midnight and pass out fjgkhjfgh. But yeah!! This was a nice one because for once the guys get to see and react to Himemiko (unlike Oda and Toyotomi).

      Their reaction (or lackluster reaction LOL) makes the timeline really confusing though. I still thought Himemiko disappeared a looooong time ago because Masamune doesn’t even recognize her. And it was AFTER Himemiko gave her blood to like the master Gekkazoku race that they split off into different types. And yet they also make it sound like she disappeared around Motonari’s time which doesn’t seem that long ago?? So confused as to how long it’s been.
