SNB Takeda ~ Chapter 1.2 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 1: Even a Chance Meeting is Due to Fate

In a hurry, everyone inside the castle were preparing for the next battle.

In a world where battles were around the corner, she started to look for something she could be even a little help with, but…

Chapter 1.2

Following after Shingen-san and the others, I came across a familiar back amongst all the soldiers who were moving to somewhere and ran over to it.

[YUZUKI]: “Um… is a battle really going to start?”

[MASAKAGE]: “Hmph. It hasn’t started yet. From here we’re going to the place where we’ll lineup, and then strategies will be given–“

[MASAKAGE]: “Wait, WOAH!? Why are you here! Didn’t Shingen-sama tell you to wait at the castle!”

.[YUZUKI]: “I-I’m sorry. But I thought I could help with something…!”

[MASAKAGE]: “Help with something… no you can’t! If a woman comes to something like a battlefield, it’ll just end with her getting hurt and crying.”

[MASAKAGE]: “Geez… SHINGEN-SAMA!”

[SHINGEN]: “… Yo, I heard.”

[SHINGEN]: “I planned to leave you behind at the castle since it’s dangerous, but… if that’s how you think then I can’t turn you down flatly. But even being in the medical corps doesn’t change how it’ll be dangerous.”

[SHINGEN]: “Alright. You’ll be next to me from here on. That way it’ll be safe. It’s not the medical corps, but you can help with various things.”

[YUZUKI]: “Is that okay?”

[MASAKAGE]: “No, no, no! Please wait, Shingen-sama! A woman is definitely gonna be a burden!”

[SHINGEN]: “Now, now, calm down, Masakage. Even if she’s an aide, she’ll just be together with me at the main camp. So, it’s not something you need to worry about.”

[MASAKAGE]: “Well, but…”

[SHINGEN]: “You’re alright with this too, right? Since a battlefield really is dangerous so… make sure not to leave my side, okay.”

[YUZUKI]: “R-Right…!”

[YUZUKI]: (Masakage-san’s gaze is pretty painful though…)

Like that, I wasn’t able to enter the medical corps but I accompanied them to the battle as Shingen-san’s aide.

After a while, we passed through the forest and my vision opened up. The army advanced through the plains alongside a main road.

[YUZUKI]: (I can only see this as a peaceful scene… Are we really going to a battle from here…?)

[YUZUKI]: “Shingen-san, about this battle, who are you fighting?”

[SHINGEN]: “The Uesugi Army. You met them yesterday too, right?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes… then a battle really is going to start from here, huh…”

[SHINGEN]: “Yeah. I’m sorry to say this again and again but… whatever happens, don’t leave my side, okay?”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay.”

[NOBUHARU]: “Ha ha ha, when I think about battling all-out with Uesugi, my blood tingles with excitement!”

[MASAKAGE]: “I’m gonna give them a good one too! Today, I’ll take down more soldiers than you, Nobuharu-san!”

[NOBUHARU]: “Oh! That’s promising. Fight with the spirit of defeating even Kenshin.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Kenshin, do you mean Uesugi Kenshin?”

[SHINGEN]: “Yeah. Uesugi Kenshin… a military genius, praised as a god of war.”

[SHINGEN]: “That guy is really amazing. Every time we fight, I’ll be driven to a corner and the plans I had confidence in would be broken. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been forced into a hard fight.”

[YUZUKI]: (Even though he’s talking about the person he’s going to be fighting soon, Shingen-san’s eyes are glittering like a little boy’s and he looks like he’s having fun.)

With those glittering eyes, Shingen-san stared beyond the road into the distance.

[SHINGEN]: “–I want to surpass that guy one day.”

[YUZUKI]: “Surpass…?”

[SHINGEN]: “Uh… yeah, you see, in the past… there was a time when I dabbled in tactics and warfare and got cocky.”

[SHINGEN]: “But when I fought that guy for the first time, I started shaking. There’s a guy who fights this amazingly! Is what I thought.”

[SHINGEN]: “After I managed to pull through that place somehow, I reflected on myself and started studying from scratch again.”

[SHINGEN]: “And well, thanks to that too, at the moment there’s been no conclusion with Kenshin, and we’ve continued to end in draws…”

[SHINGEN]: “Fighting is a large part about protecting my people and the comrades of my territory too, but…”

[SHINGEN]: “In the end, I wanna win. As a man putting myself in the middle of battle…”

[YUZUKI]: (Now that he mentioned it, even in the world I was in I learned that Takeda Shingen and Uesugi Kenshin had a rivalry…)

[YUZUKI]: “I don’t know much about war but… I hope we win.”

[SHINGEN]: “Haha, that’s right. –Woah!… Looks like our chatting has to stop here.”

[SHINGEN]: “EVERYONE! We’re heading out into the plains soon. Focus yourself! You should be able to see their battle formation.”

[MASANOBU]: “… It is as Shingen-sama says. I can see the Uesugi camp on the other side.”

[YUZUKI]: (Over there is this world’s Uesugi Kenshin…)

[YUZUKI]: (It’s a bit far from here so I can’t tell but maybe one of those people with ears on top of their heads is Uesugi Kenshin…)

[YUZUKI]: (Those people are the same werewolves as Shingen-san and the others, huh. I wonder if there are others…)

[MASANOBU]: “Still, why are their armies there…? It’s quite a simple formation for Kenshin.”

[SHINGEN]: “–Is it to tempt us to drop our guard, or…”

[SHINGEN]: “In any case, our enemy is the war god, Uesugi Kenshin! Even for an instant, don’t be unprepared.”

[MASAKAGE]: “Shingen-sama. Please leave this to me. I’ll scare them out of their wits!”

[SHINGEN]: “I thought you’d say that. Then, Masakage will surprise them at the vanguard.”

[SHINGEN]: “Masanobu, you’ll challenge them from the right. Nobuharu-san, I’ll have you attack from the left.”

[SHINGEN]: “And Masatoyo and I will protect this place as the main camp. Masatoyo, how are the preparations for our provisions and supplies?”

[MASATOYO]: “Of course, it’s been solidly done. There should be no problems, even if this battle continues for a week.”

[SHINGEN]: “As expected. That’s encouraging.”

In front of our enemies, preparations for the battle proceeded steadily and quickly, but also quietly so as to not be noticed by our enemies.

[YUZUKI]: (It really is starting…)

Feeling it in my bones that the battle was about to start, I suddenly became scared and shrank back, but Shingen-san came to my side and grinned.

[SHINGEN]: “Don’t look so worried. Didn’t you just say it back there, that you hope we win.”

[SHINGEN]: “We won’t lose. So, pray for our victory in this special seat beside me. Yeah?”

[YUZUKI]: “Shingen-san…”

There were many soldiers running around carrying various weapons, but even amongst that I found myself smiling unexpectedly.

[SHINGEN]: “Great, that’s a good smile.”

[SHINGEN]: “–Alright, EVERYONE! Let’s start soon! First, we’ll sock them as hard as we can!”

[EVERYONE]: “OORAH!!”

    *flashbacks to Uesugi main storyline* The rivalry between these two is nice with the amount of respect they have for each other. As well on how they’re on complete opposite sides. This also reminds me of vol. 2 where the story also focused on them LOL.

      I still get the feeling that Shingen is like a yappy dog barking at Kenshin who just wants to be left alone, haha, because I don’t think we hear much about Kenshin’s thoughts on Shingen until the whole kidnapping thing and at that point Kenshin is thinking angry mean thoughts about him. Here though it’s super early on and Shingen has nothing but respect |D.

      I love it too though, especially that amazing contrast :’D one guy’s all about personal desires and ambition and exceeding the other as a goal or marker. The other is textbook definition of the word general who just wants to protect his people.

      I juuuuuust read volume 2 recently and OH MAN OH MAN!! NOBUNAGA!! WOW. I’m also super impressed by the artist who had to draw all the armies, haha.

        LOL really Shingen wants to be noticed by Kenshin-senpai//bricked. Well I think they’ll still retain that respect as we head into later chapters, though right now they’re in an alliance with each other. So, we get to appreciate them working together like in their first event? Until it breaks, haha. I liked that segment with Kenshin’s biwa playing (because WE ALWAYS NEED TO EMPHASIZE WHAT A CULTURED AND REFINED GENTLEDOGE HE IS) and Kagemochi’s introduction because of the zoom-up on his face lol. OH YEAH MAN NOBUNAGA AND WHEN HE AND KENSHIN WERE DRAWING THEIR WEAPONS. Did you see the previews the artist posted for the Date and Sanada armies? *wiggles eyebrows* Meanwhile, I wonder how Mouri is gonna fit into the manga. Like are they gonna be final boss or introduced after the main six.

    Ahahaha, that’s a good thought one, Masakage. But yeah let’s see what happens XD

    And Yuzuki, plz switch with me, I want that position too~ (jkjk) But she’s truly lucky huh… Become Shingen’s aide in a short time, and then she become Shingen’s… Pzzt, I won’t tell any spoilers~

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

      Masakage is just asking to be teased with comments like that :’)) oh silly poor boy, lemme show you just how scary women can be.

      Haha, I wonder if we can consider Shingen to be one of the fastest who warms up to her (though I guess Yukimura gets pretty close too… and Motonari). He treats her with so much consideration and never really gets angry (except for that one scene :’D).

      <3 thanks for commenting!

    When you’re younger brother/cousins doesn’t let you play with them because you’re a girl and tell daddy about it, but daddy allowed you to play with them 😂

      LOL. Now you said it XD
      Yeah, but the next part was amusing too

      Shingen : “… Yo, I’m heard” (or I should say listen, since they had the same meaning, but the context was different)

      It makes me laugh hard y’know, lololololol XD

        Reggie said:
        May 20, 2018 at 07:34

        Lol so much too about that 😂 Since Shingen is a gentleman, he don’t want to let down ladies 😄

      LAUGHING SO MUCH AT THIS ONE. That’s exactly what it sounds like hjfkgjhgkfjh oh Masakage :’)) big brother has spoken and you gotta play nice to the girl!!

    Starting from feeling nothing special, I recently find myself really like Masakage ;D I don’t know, he looks like a simple tsundere boy who wanna grow up fast at first but then he loses it and became growing on me instead now. What a cute boy. And I just read the latest collab event story, I laughed so hard on the part he was thought to be Sisi dog in Impey’s dream XD What a perfect pairing.

      Ilinox responded:

      Normally, I drop kick people like Masakage to the other side of the room but omg same in that I ended up really liking him? Kanetsugu grew on me like mold but Masakage is just sooo silly and so childish and immature that you just wanna embarrass him so badly. Rub all your girl cooties on him so he freaks out or something |D.

      I haven’t gotten around to the collab story yet but omg that sounds good.

    [MASAKAGE]: “Help with something… no you can’t! If a woman comes to something like a battlefield, it’ll just end with her getting hurt and crying.”

    Now, now, Masakage… If you say things like that anywhere near me… YOU will be the one getting hurt and crying, hmm?
    I think Masakage really needs someone to correct his way of thinking… Not every woman is like what you think. ಠ_ಠ I hope Yuzuki will give him a “good time”.

    [SHINGEN]: “Alright. You’ll be next to me from here on. That way it’ll be safe. It’s not the medical corps, but you can help with various things.”

    Because the safest place is next to the general, eh?

    [NOBUHARU]: “Ha ha ha, when I think about battling all-out with Uesugi, my blood tingles with excitement!”

    Dunno why, but when I read this line, I feel like my blood is also tingling! |D

      Ilinox responded:
      May 18, 2018 at 15:52

      omg I was reading your comment at work and nearly burst out laughing kjfgkhjfgh Masakage is soooooo against girls that it becomes hilarious instead because he’s just like an immature boy. I actually really like how MC deals with him and IIRC we’ll get to that pretty quickly :”D. And then Masakage will become the most flustered person ever and gets teased for being a boy with no experience with girls~.

      LOL where have we heard that before– *stares at Kenshin and Masamune, but mostly Kenshin and all the hell he’s been dragged through*.

      You don’t know how tempted I was to say “blood… raging!!” or “my sword hand itches” a la Owain LOL. Any Fire Emblem fans here? |D;;

        yukihime03 said:
        May 20, 2018 at 17:56

        Good, can’t wait to see Masakage getting his lessons. LOL

        I was more tempted to say “my blood is boiling!” or things like it that are often said by shounen heroes…
        *raises hand* though I only know extensively about Fire Emblem Awakening… I just want to facepalm sometimes when it comes to Owain…

    didnt shingen find yuzuki suspicious? and he even let her stay by his side. what a lucky girl.

      There are those types of people who just don’t care too. So, he could be in that category or he was also overconfident in that aspect.

      Cey said:
      May 18, 2018 at 13:25

      But before he said he had good eye for people… or something like that, didn’t he?

      Ilinox responded:
      May 18, 2018 at 15:54

      Nah, he seems pretty chill with her |D;; after he caught her from the tree he also picked up on her worry and told her to relax in his castle and all that. So I think, like Cey said, he’s pretty confident in his impressions of her and doesn’t have his guard up around her (and MC will prove him right ofc cause she has a heart of gold).
