Chapter 4: Adversity Tests the Character of a Man

Around the time she started to become accustomed to life in Shinga, a letter from a neighbouring ally arrived.

On the way to negotiations, Masanobu told her there was something only she could do…

Chapter 4.2

[YUZUKI]: “Shingen-san, are we really going to war?”

[SHINGEN]: “Nah, today’s just for a declaration of war.”

In a short time, the allied general who asked them to “hand over the concubine” and “if you refuse, I’ll raise an army on top of breaking off economic relations” would come here.

For a declaration of war to be a response to that– in other words, they were saying something like, we won’t do as you say, but–

[YUZUKI]: “It’s only a declaration of war but everyone seems to be completely armed though…”

[SHINGEN]: “That’s ’cause the other guy said he’d send soldiers if we refuse. I’m preparing in case anything happens. Only preparing.”

[SHINGEN]: “Well, whether that guy suspects if we’ll listen to him or not, he’ll come with several people. In the worst case, if it becomes a battle, we won’t have any problems.”

[YUZUKI]: (Is it really going to be okay…)

[MASAKAGE]: “Hmph! He can come at us anytime.”

[NOBUHARU]: “Fuhaha. You’re more fired up than usual, Masakage.”

[NOBUHARU]: “And… unusually enough, you too, Masanobu.”

[MASANOBU]: “Yes. I haven’t felt this since my first campaign.”

[MASANOBU]: “I cannot excuse a fellow who, not only ignored a lady’s opinions and pressed her to become his concubine, but also tried to pass a demand by threatening the Takeda Army.”

[MASATOYO]: “Everyone, as stated in the letter, the allied general should be arriving soon.”

[MASAKAGE]: “Hell yeah! Everything’s prepared over here, as always!”

[YUZUKI]: (It’s finally coming… It’d be nice if we could somehow end this without a fight, but that’d be hard wouldn’t it…)

[YUZUKI]: (Something like demanding a concubine immediately without even discussing it, or sending soldiers… it’s all things you couldn’t imagine in my old world…)

[YUZUKI]: (…… I wonder how everyone’s doing.)

The faces of my family and friends who were in my original world suddenly crossed my mind.

[YUZUKI]: (Up to now, I’ve just been concentrating fully on doing things in front of me, and I haven’t been able to search for Himemiko-sama at all like I promised Imari-kun…)

[YUZUKI]: (In Shinga, only Himemiko-sama and Imari-kun know that I’m from a parallel universe. I even missed my chance to talk to Shingen-san…)

After becoming useful as a herbalist, I thought I was spending fulfilling days.

But, in truth, that might have just been me trying to turn my eyes away from reality.

[YUZUKI]: (After we settle this matter, I need to think seriously about a way to return home to my original world…)

[SHINGEN]: “–Hey… Heeey, are you alright?”

[YUZUKI]: “Wah, Shingen-san!? What is it!?”

[SHINGEN]: “Those are my lines. That’s quite a low-spirited face there. Rather than anxiety… it feels more like you’re troubled?”

[YUZUKI]: “N-No. It’s nothing.”

Shingen-san’s face suddenly appeared close to mine and even I could realize that my voice went high and nervous.

[SHINGEN]: “… Really?”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-Yes. It’s enough to discuss it after this current matter settles down.”

[NOBUHARU]: “Hm… Shingen. It appears that they’ve arrived.”

At Nobuharu-san’s words, everyone’s face tightened in an instant.

[YUZUKI]: (… Now’s not the time to think about unnecessary things. Because we’re declaring war on top of refusing a marriage.)

[YUZUKI]: (Everyone said they’d protect me but… I also have to be reliable!)

When I looked over the plains, a loud and showy group was walking towards us.

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “Oh ho, everybody! I appreciate your efforts in welcoming me.”

[YUZUKI]: (T-This man… is the person who fell in love at first sight with me?)

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “… Oh ho, you there! You have also awaited me! Hmhm, you truly are fetching.”

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “Furthermore, never in my life have I seen a girl clothed in such an intriguing atmosphere. I am partial to unusual things.”

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “And my eyes are unerring. It’s decided! Girl, you shall become my concubine. Be grateful!”

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “Now, come closer and let me see your face–“

[MASAKAGE]: “Hey, don’t get ahead of yourself.”

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “What is this, boy! Do not interrupt me!!”

[MASAKAGE]: “I’m not a boy! I’m a fine commander of the Takeda Army!”

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “Hmm, is that so? Well, it is of no concern to me who you are.”

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “I shall be taking this girl as my concu–“

[SHINGEN]: “Hey, hey. You still don’t get it, mister general?”

[SHINGEN]: “I’ll be refusing your proposal. There’s only one reason we all came out to greet you. –It’s to declare war on you.”

[SHINGEN]: “Sorry, but this girl is someone the Takeda Army can’t do without. We’re not gonna hand her over to a guy like you.”

[SHINGEN]: “Besides, I don’t like that attitude of ignoring her feelings and deciding for yourself on her being your concubine.”

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “Y-You, blackguard… do you understand who you are speaking to!?”

[SHINGEN]: “Of course.”

[SHINGEN]: “From today onwards, the Takeda Army… breaks this alliance!”

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “Kgh…! Who do you think has been protecting you lowlife country samurai until now!”

[SHINGEN]: “Hey, hey. Have you forgotten who it is that’s actually doing the fighting and protecting?”

[SHINGEN]: “It’s a problem to lump us together with those mercenaries that move if you put out money.”

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “… You moneyless country samurai are getting carried away, daring to repay kindness with ingratitude! It would have been best if you obeyed me quietly… Come out!”

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “Fufu… these men are one of my territory’s fiercest warriors. Country samurai such as you men would not even be opponents to them.”

[SHINGEN]: “Ohh, is that so. Then please go easy on us.”

[ALLIED GENERAL]: “Grrgh… I’ll make you realize the full extent of your actions! Men, engage them!”


[SHINGEN]: “Hmph!”

Shingen-san shouted gleefully while he used his own sword to catch the sword of the soldier who sprung out.

[SHINGEN]: “Everyone! Go wild to your heart’s content!”


At last, like this, the battle of the Takeda Army and the allied territory began–.

(T/N: Honestly, I love it whenever battles like these happen because you get to hear the generals talk shit and be extra sarcastic LOL. Shingen’s voice went from super caring towards the heroine to hella sarcastic with the enemy. On another note, I hope I did this conversation justice but I’m never satisfied with these kinds of things so here’s a note about how the enemy general is talking in a very archaic, noble, old-timey way and in comparison Shingen sounds like a gangster LMAO. The contrast is hilarious.)

    “Yay, I’m an idiot!” Now that was stupid… -_- I really thought that it was Hideyoshi. LOL! XD

      I mean I don’t blame you for thinking Hideyoshi would do something wild like that, haha, but the werewolves and vampires haven’t met quite yet :’D apart from uhh Oda and Sanada and Date.

    Sometimes I really like how Nobuharu talked about everyone’s actions <3 If Takeda didn’t have him, we will never know these bit atmosphere. Other routes are not so descriptive when it comes to such circumstance like this so sometimes I forgot that everyone else are actually standing around/nearby.

    The costumes of that enemy army really looks luxurious. I don’t see these costumes anywhere else in other routes, I love the details they put in the game :D

    And I laughed at the “lowlife country samurai” phrase, I should have been angry but for some reasons, I find it’s pretty hilarious (sorry Takeda guys). What a disgusting old man. I personally dislike the middle-aged/old men who never get enough about women. Please get him away from our heroines!!

      Oh, that’s true! Thinking back to Uesugi it’s so centered around Kenshin’s response and conflict that you don’t really see what Kageie and Kagemochi think (especially when they were just standing there during the fight with Shingen and watched Kenshin get stabbed and the MC jump off the cliff, uhh…). I love that reveal with Masanobu :’)).

      Haha, I made it a point to screenshot those costumes since I don’t think we get to see these fancy guys ever again |D;; but yeah!! I still crack up a little at how the soldiers/bandits have the same face but well that can’t be helped.

      It’s pretty funny because this guy is clearly just all talk and Shingen isn’t worried at all, just kind of annoyed at having to deal with this minor nuisance LOL. Him calling Takeda country samurai isn’t helped when Shingen talks like how he does to him fghjkfghjkjgfh he’s full on talking like a gangster/yakuza to this guy’s posh old-timey way LOL. But yeah UGH I was so curious as to who this general was that wanted the MC and then when I saw him I was like “NOPE NOPE ABORT ABORT” hahahaha. Imagine if a really hot dude showed up though |D;;

    I knew it! It’s a dirty old man because according to Shingen’s description of that s***ty it sounds like it’s a old man that’s why I was so enraged.

    When I read old Japanese courting tradition, I was like ” oops…. Sorry excuse my manners back there, I didn’t know because I was living in a different world lol ” but when it comes to story, it’s so grrr….. (╬ಠ益ಠ) EW EW EW EW YUCK EEEWWWWYYYY!!!! _| ̄|○、;’.・
    When the picture of the old man appear, I was laughing so hard at your reply lol 😂 ( sometimes I skip chapters with no cg in game so I don’t know what will happen next ^^’)

    Hmm….. What about they pretend to be a married couple so that s*** will back off? For example Masanobu or others but for Masakage is like they’re siblings being Yuzuki a older sister even though Masakage is older than her 😂
    Or maybe it’s not effective plan but I love to see this war too, it looks interesting so it’s much better. I hope that s*** will learn his lessons bwahahaha!

      LMAO I didn’t know what I was expecting… maybe the model for the bandits or soldiers? Like some middle-aged man or something. NOT THE OLD GRANDPA SPRITE THOUGH!!

      If only it was someone like a commander from Uesugi, or even one of the vampires. That would have been a really interesting development instead of this lecher LOL. But then again the moment the letter said he wanted a concubine and not an official wife then that rang alarm bells (even if it was the norm back then).

      LOL I love that trope!! Agreed, I’m surprised they weren’t like “sorry, she’s already engaged / promised to OUR general, Shingen, so too bad” and then you won’t have to worry about war and economic issues. But then again I love how Shingen has no cares to give and is like “Nah, you can’t make me do what I don’t want to do” which is also such a great contrast to Kenshin and his “I can’t move my entire army for one person” when his MC got kidnapped :’)). Shingen is literally going to war for his MC LOL (with the added bonus of telling the old grandpa to take his unreasonable demands and shove it where the sun don’t shine, cause Shingen didn’t like him to begin with).

    Masanobu : “Yes. I haven’t felt this since my first campaign.”
    Masanobu : “I cannot excuse a fellow who, not only ignored a lady’s opinions and pressed her to become his concubine, but also tried to pass a demand by threatening the Takeda Army.”

      Akh, found this from official Twitter

      Don’t know what is that… Please help to translate (kinda confused that Umehara-san in there…)

        Ilinox responded:
        June 14, 2018 at 09:48

        It’s Masanobu’s time to shine :’D and yes haha I love his line too and that reveal of just how much he’s affected by this that even Nobuharu comments on how unusually pressed he is LOL.

        It’s just a live event that they’re hosting where all the seiyuus of the leaders will be attending but ooh that is interesting that Umehara is listed as going. I wonder if he’s only cancelled most of his projects but still chosen some to stick with. Or if that was an error on SNB’s part and they’re gonna announce that Umehara won’t be attending, hmm.

    Iri thanks for all your hard work once again! Also I started studying japanese again. Not officially just using Duolingoat this stage. Practising quite a bit of kanji, I aspire to be as good as you!

      Ilinox responded:
      June 15, 2018 at 10:42

      You’re welcome and !! any practice counts as practice :D hope you take it easy and enjoy the process of learning~ remember there’s no rush either! And awwww I’m sure if you keep it up you will be! It’s been 6+ years since I picked up self-studying Japanese and you can see how rough my translations and understanding was the farther back in this blog you go |D;; so it’s a journey but the most important thing is to have fun while you’re doing it!

      Nope, haha, I know it gets messy since we’ve seen the heroine’s beginning in a whole bunch of other routes but in this one she’s only told Shingen that she woke up without any knowledge of where she was on the tree, but not that she’s from another world. And then he showed her to her room and they immediately went into a battle with Uesugi and basically that conversation got endlessly pushed back. Imari also hasn’t shown himself to them |D;;
