SNB Masatoyo ~ Awakening ~

Posted on Updated on

[YUZUKI]: “Haa… haa… It’s surprisingly far from the castle to the main camp, huh…”

I was heading to where Shingen-san and the others were waiting at the main camp together with Masatoyo-san and the supply squad he was leading.

[MASATOYO]: “Tired?”

[YUZUKI]: “Mm, I’m okay. There’s no time to rest.”

[MASATOYO]: “You’re very dependable. It’s just a little further until the main camp. You can do it.”

[MASATOYO]: “If the morale is raised with these supplies, I’m certain we’ll win the battle this time as well.”

[MASATOYO]: “It’s very encouraging for supplies to arrive when you’re exhausted.”

[MASATOYO]: “That’s how important our role is. Let’s hurry.”

[YUZUKI]: “Right!”

At that moment, our surroundings suddenly became noisy and tension ran through all the soldiers.

[TAKEDA ARMY SOLDIER]: “Reporting! A group of enemy soldiers is attacking!”

[YUZUKI]: “What…!? The enemy should be fighting with Shingen-san and the others…”

[MASATOYO]: “… It looks to be a detached force. I believe their goal is to cut off supplies.”

[MASATOYO]: “If we run away here, they might pursue us to the main camp. If that happens, then it will cause trouble for Shingen-sama…”

[MASATOYO]: “There’s no choice, we’ll counterattack here. We’ll defeat the enemy before proceeding!”


When Masatoyo-san made his decision, the area quickly became a battlefield.

Enemies and allies became jumbled together and a violent battle began.

And then, even to my location…

[ENEMY SOLDIER]: “I won’t spare anyone whether they’re women or children! Prepare to die!!”

[YUZUKI]: “Wah, ahhhhh!?”

[MASATOYO]: “Watch out!”

[MASATOYO]: “Kgh…!”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha, Masatoyo-san!? You’re hurt!?”

[MASATOYO]: “Don’t move! It’s still dangerous! Hragh!”

[ENEMY SOLDIER]: “Guuagh!”

[MASATOYO]: “Stay behind me. I’ll protect you without fail.”

[YUZUKI]: “B-But Masatoyo-san… you’re hurt! We need to hurry and treat that!”

[MASATOYO]: “I’m fine. I can still move with this extent.”

[MASATOYO]: “… I let you see something embarrassing though.”

[MASATOYO]: “If it were Masakage or Nobuharu-san, they wouldn’t be scratched by this sort of thing…”

[MASATOYO]: “But don’t worry. I’ll protect you even if it takes my life.”

[MASATOYO]: “Haa… haa…! S-Somehow, we won…”

Masatoyo-san’s efforts were the reason the enemy retreated. However…

[MASATOYO]: “Gugh! … Aha, haha… how troubling. I have no strength in my arms and legs…”

[YUZUKI]: “Masatoyo-san! Those injuries are awful…! It needs medicine immediately–“

[YUZUKI]: (No, the bleeding is too bad… Medicine won’t do anything about that…)

[YUZUKI]: (… Now that it’s come to this!)

[YUZUKI]: “Masatoyo-san. Come here!”

As I supported Masatoyo-san, who couldn’t walk on his own, I moved deep into the forest.

It was quiet here and no one could see us.

There I… slowly held out my arm.

[YUZUKI]: “Drink m-my blood.”

[MASATOYO]: “But… that…”

[YUZUKI]: “Please! At this rate, Masatoyo-san, you’ll…”

[MASATOYO]: “… I understand. But a mark will stand out on your arm.”

Saying that, Masatoyo-san removed my boots and socks with slow and careful movements.

And then Masatoyo-san’s hand gently touched my foot.

[YUZUKI]: “… Ah.”

[MASATOYO]: “You’re nervous, aren’t you. Don’t worry, I will do my best so that it won’t hurt… Please relax.”

Masatoyo-san’s hand kindly stroked my foot. And then my foot was kissed.

[YUZUKI]: (…! Masatoyo-san’s fangs are… pressed into me. It’s inside…!)

It tickled a little to have my foot touched… but still, for some reason, I was struck by a warm and strange sensation in the depths of my heart.

[MASATOYO]: “… I vow to continue to protect you, now and in the future.”

[MASATOYO]: “I was given life by you, and so I need to be by your side forever.”

[MASATOYO]: “No, this is a wish from me. Please allow me to be by your side…”

    I love his awakened form, I think his and Kageie are my favorites. Next is probably Masanobu but only because he loses his soccer mom hat 😆. I have not seen the Mouri Armies awakened forms, so maybe I will adjust my list. But at least Masatoyo goes from looking like a cute fox with those eye slits to actually looking like a werewolf. He looks way more handsome in his awakened form, especially his “With Confidence” card.

      I wish they always showed the awakened forms in their awakening scenes /o\ because then I can’t show their before/after models here until I do one of their card stories, wah. LOL I think you’re one of the few who like Kageie’s awakening form but I completely agree with the soccer mom hat disappearing for Masanobu. Honestly, WHY does he have that hat!! Masatoyo is a super cutie with his eyes open and he needs to do that more often >:(

    Masatoyo’s eyes are one of prettiest along with Mitsuhide and Hideyoshi (awakened) 😘In his sprite, he has a mischievous look when open eyed and if I see it correctly he has slit pupil that make him dangerous?
    Masatoyo will you carry her? Because it’s painful walking with that wound.

      Ilinox responded:
      June 6, 2018 at 10:25

      Haha, I definitely agree on Mitsuhide and Hideyoshi having beautiful eyes (inside and outside of awakening imo). I never noticed Masatoyo’s slit pupils but you’re right!! That’s probably why when he does open his eyes he gets so much presence and looks dangerous, haha. The only other one that I can remember having very vivid slit pupils is Ranmaru /o\.

      LOL I love how we’re all just contemplating the logistics of having a wound on the foot and the inconveniences of that.

    What a place to bite her and drink her blood, I suppose she does not mind the smell of cheese, I hope she’ll carry it, it hurts a lot to put on shoes when you get hurt in that place. I was hurt by a cat in that place and I felt a whole week of pain.

    First time I see him with his eyes open, I liked the color, it looks good.

    I wonder if they grow black nails or paint them. I can not imagine them painting their nails.

      Hisui Sama (@Hisui0Sama) said:
      June 5, 2018 at 17:46

      It seems that if the black nails grow like the wolf of the image, it seems strange to me that only those of Takeda had them like that.

        Ilinox responded:
        June 5, 2018 at 20:26

        I think they actually do paint their nails since if you look at any of the other werewolf armies they don’t have painted nails. It’s not that weird right? |D;; I just keep thinking of the Akatsuki from Naruto and their fashion sense. Cool guys can paint their nails whatever color they want. And Takeda army even has their ears pierced so they’re clearly on top of fashion in Shinga LOL.

        I’ve been looking at Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru, every time that Kashuu Kiyomitsu appeared painting his nails, I imagined the mans of Takeda painting them and I laughed, they look good, but they keep giving me curly. They also have to be painted often, if my nails are easily ruined by housework alone, nor can I imagine how much they are ruined by fighting with swords.

    Leave my foot alone!!
    No no no no. I don’t like that. I rather have a mark on my arm. LOL.
    (Really, I would be on the floor, roaring with laughter, screaming, unable to breath, and kicking him –maybe all at the same time–, the moment he touched my foot.)
    But yeah, I do like how he looks.

    Ilinox: He has not a weak presence!!!! He is stealthy! And I don’t care what the writers say. ¬¬
    Hahaha, sorry.
    I mean, being able to go behind you, without making any sound… that has nothing to do with a weak presence. Unless I’m misunderstanding the meaning of that phrase… O_o
    On the other hand… maybe the others are just to distracted to notice him. =P

    I like Masatoyo a lot. I’m all for the gentle types. (I can’t decide which one is my favorite number two in this army, him or Nobuharu. Though I think Nobuharu is not particularly gentle, but he isn’t rude either.) Anyway, that’s what I think.

        June 5, 2018 at 20:14

        I think I’d prefer to have a mark on my arm than my foot too, especially if she’s going to be walking on it later. But in general I don’t like people touching my feet either HAHA foot fetishes are a no go for me–

        It might have been my choice of translation words, oops. But I don’t think they meant it in a bad way like he comes off as weak or anything. It’s just like… he’s not there? He doesn’t stand out? A thin presence? |D;; He keeps getting forgotten by people and disappears from their sight without even having to move, but that just shows how unassuming and quiet he is I guess!

        I feel like we still don’t have enough scenes with Nobuharu to really understand him. He just comes off as like… an uncle to me though, oops. But yeah!! My number 2 is taken by the hidden beast Masanobu |D;; but I might slot Masatoyo after him because he’s just so sweet. I do want to shake him a bit though with his low self-esteem and be like “YOU ARE VALID. NO WORRIES!!” but then again I feel the urge to do that to a bunch of men in here. Mitsuhide and his guilt complex. Kagekatsu and his inferiority complex. Kenshin and his ideals. LOLOL. Everyone’s gonna get a long lecture from me about their personalities.

    It just me, or that CG kinda…. How should I say this? Sinful?

    Put aside what I’m said. But, that enemy npc. I don’t think that Kenshin will allowed his soldier to hurt anyone that didn’t follow to battle…

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

        June 5, 2018 at 09:12

        It’s a pretty risque CG indeed |D compared to Masakage’s though (because Masanobu had a pretty steamy one too).

        It’s interesting that they only called the enemy soldier an “enemy soldier” instead of “Uesugi soldier” like they normally would. But then again they have sprites for bandits / random enemies, so if this was just a random army you’d think they’d use those sprites? So… I kind of think it is Uesugi :’)) which is a bit sad. These poor grunts never get treated well though on both sides LOL they just get mowed down by the commanders.

    is that usuegi army? cant beleive it? i mean will kenshin approve?

    Saying that, Masatoyo-san removed my boots and socks with slow and careful movements.

    checks my feet. it’s not smelly but my ingrown toe nails

    [MASATOYO]: “… I vow to continue to protect you, now and in the future.”
    [MASATOYO]: “I was given life by you, and so I need to be by your side forever.”

    these lines can capture my heart

      Ilinox responded:
      June 5, 2018 at 09:09

      LOL I might have taken a picture of the enemy just for giggles because they seem to be a part of Uesugi. It’s not like Kenshin can keep an eye and control everyone in his army especially since Uesugi is one of the largest werewolf armies too :’) I’m sure some people in there just want to murder their enemies completely, regardless of if they’re civilians or other soldiers.

    My secret fav aside form Shingen in this army ;w;
    I guess I really favor the soft and nice characters.
    *pats him*

      Ilinox responded:
      June 5, 2018 at 09:08

      I don’t normally like characters who have overplayed jokes like this but Masatoyo is pretty cute ;3; he really is soft and sweet (but unfortunately I keep thinking about what a value he’d be if he were an assassin– oopsies).

        Candy said:
        June 5, 2018 at 12:47

        With his closed eyes he reminds me of another character that I really like, haha. I don’t really take much note of this running gag where they always ignore/don’t see him. He’s cute :3 I would like to see an assassin version, oh yes~

    Is it just me, or aside from the CG, there is no other picture of Masatoyo? If anything, an enemy sprite is featured instead?
    You are a cruel woman, Ili. |D

    …especially since his awakened form looks really attractive… when his eyes are opened.

      Takeda ch 4.4 or 4.5, if I recall correctly. There’s CG that Masatoyo and Yuzuki was teased by childrens (well, the story was secret~)

      If you want, I’ll give you Masatoyo pic with open eyes via Twitter…

        yukihime03 said:
        June 5, 2018 at 17:31

        Nah, thanks for the offer, but it’s okay.
        I was just teasing Ili. |D

        I’ll wait most patiently for Takeda chp 4.

        @leohikarusora and @yukihime03

        i love that scene where children teasing them and that cg is priceless. i like that masotoy’s cg in there

        im actually excited more of chapter 6 or 7.

      Ilinox responded:
      June 5, 2018 at 09:07

      It’s because he has such a weak presence that– lololol just kidding, that was completely unintentional. I try to take pictures of scene changes and the CG and then the awakening after (if they show it) but this one just ended up like this :’)).

      I agree though that his awakening is actually one of the few that looks good in Takeda! I think we should get it again during the main story too.

        yukihime03 said:
        June 5, 2018 at 17:40

        I even checked the other awakening posts and they usually have 3 pictures of the guy including the CG! lol~
        Yeah, I suspected they did not show his awakening pic here. Even the game creators are not nice to Masatoyo… :’)

        Masatoyo when awakened looks like a very attractive kitsune…. especially since he looks cunning.
        He’s like that character who is nice and meek when his eyes are closed, but who will become aggressive and badass when his eyes are opened. |D

        Ilinox responded:
        June 5, 2018 at 20:08

        Completely unintentional I swear! I’m not being biased against Masatoyo, hahaha. IIRC they do that to a few characters ;w; not showing their awakened form afterwards. But yeah, I really like how he gets those dot eyebrows (I keep associating those with empresses so it’s pretty funny to see them on him, but cute!).

        The bit about his eyes reminds me of one of his card stories (was it the Code Realize one…?) but basically he tries to practice having more of a presence and doesn’t really achieve it until the heroine is a bit scared because he looks angry and turns out that he had opened his eyes and his eyes are really sharp-looking and give him a dangerous aura LOL.

        yukihime03 said:
        June 5, 2018 at 21:18

        Masatoyo has it difficult, eh.
        If he closes his eyes, he has no presence, but if he opens his eyes, he has too much of a presence. lol
        Now I wish he opens his eyes more often, especially since he has a nice eye color too. (Is it green? blue? blue green?)

        …oh help, now I can’t stop thinking about Masatoyo.

        @ilinox i wanna see how he looked like

        Ilinox responded:
        June 6, 2018 at 10:20

        @yukihime03: I thought they were gold ;;; but now that I squint at it you’re right… it kind of looks like it has a green-ish hue? His eyes are definitely gold when he’s awakened but hmmm.

        @waterinegirl: I don’t remember what card it is now |D;; but maybe he has a sprite that has opened eyes? I think that’s what happened in that scene anyway since it wasn’t like it had a CG or anything and we only ever see his eyes open on cards when he’s awakened.

        leohikarusora said:
        June 7, 2018 at 00:21

        If I recall it… His original eyes was palm green, but I think you guys can open my Twitter since I using pp Masatoyo with open eyes (here’s the link :
        And his awakening eyes are palm turquoise, and I really love both colors~)
