SNB Takeda ~ Chapter 5.2 ~

Chapter 5: Don’t Put Off To Tomorrow What You Can Do Today

The party headed to the place in the border zone with Uesugi where Himemiko was said to have descended.

Preparing for the worst case, she assisted Masatoyo with war preparations.

Chapter 5.2

[YUZUKI]: (Errm, maybe I came a bit too early.)

Though I came to the castle gates to meet up with Masatoyo-san, maybe because I was too eager, but it seemed I arrived too early.

[YUZUKI]: (Maybe I should go back inside the castle and look for him… Ah, but I don’t want to accidentally pass him…)

.[MASATOYO]: “Excuse me…”

[YUZUKI]: “Hiyah! M-Masatoyo-san…!? How long have you been here!?”

[MASATOYO]: “Hahaha. Well, nothing can be done about how weak my presence is but, actually, I’ve been here this entire time.”

[YUZUKI]: “I-I’m sorry. I, um…”

[MASATOYO]: “You don’t need to apologize, it’s alright. More importantly, did you sleep well yesterday?”

[YUZUKI]: “About that, um… I might be a bit sleep-deprived. Actually, after our talk, I was too eager to work hard that I couldn’t sleep in the end…”

[MASATOYO]: “Ahaha, it’s good to be proactive. But, if you feel too tired, please tell me.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay!”

And then Masatoyo-san set out towards the castle town and I started walking beside him too.

[YUZUKI]: “So, what are we doing today? I’ll help out with anything!”

[MASATOYO]: “That’s heartening. For today, we’re going to procure army provisions and military medicine.”

[MASATOYO]: “Usually, it’s a task I do alone but, regarding medicine, you are already more skilled and knowledgeable than me. I was thinking you would be of great help.”

[YUZUKI]: (I see… I’m useful to everyone with my medicinal knowledge. I didn’t notice but I’m really happy about that.)

[YUZUKI]: “Masatoyo-san, I’ll do my best! So please let me help out with anything more.”

As Masatoyo-san smiled again beside me, we made our way to the castle town through the tranquil landcsape.

[YUZUKI]: (I need to work really hard for everyone else too!)

When Masatoyo-san and I came to Takeda territory’s castle town, it was lively and bustling today as well, and had a very pleasant atmosphere.

[MASATOYO]: “Now then, we should head to the pharmacy with you here.”

[MASATOYO]: “First we’ll–“

[GIRL]: “Ah, it’s Masatoyo-sama!”

[BOY]: “Yaaaay~, Masatoyo-sama caame~!”

Masatoyo-san tried to walk but a lot of children came running over joyfully from somewhere.

[MASATOYO]: “Hello, everyone. You all look energetic today too.”

That smile was much gentler than usual and, even without putting it in words, it expressed how much he liked children.

As I smiled and thought that while watching Masatoyo-san and the childrens’ interactions, a child suddenly pointed at me and shouted.

And then, as if following that, the other children also looked at me with glittering eyes.

[BOY]: “Ahh! Masatoyo-sama brought a giiiirl with him!”

[GIRL]: “Is she a lover!? Is she Masatoyo-sama’s girlfriend!?”

[BOY]: “Masatoyo-sama has a loveeer!”

[MASATOYO]: “H-Hey now, don’t say rude things.”

Masatoyo-san was blushing. I could feel that my face was instinctively hot too… not knowing how to react, I could only look down.

[MASATOYO]: “This girl is the girl who became Shingen-sama’s herbalist. By no means are we, um… in that kind of relationship…”

[GIRL]: “Masatoyo-sama, your face is reeedd!”

[BOY]: “It really is!!”

[MASATOYO]: “G-Geez, I came for work today. I’ll play with everyone another time!”

[GIRL]: “Ahaha. Masatoyo-sama, you’re fuuunny!”

The children laughed for a while and then went away like a storm. Masatoyo-san and I were left in that spot, still blushing.

[MASATOYO]: “… I-I’m sorry. The children said something rude.”

[YUZUKI]: “N-No, it’s fine.”

I intended to reply to Masatoyo-san while keeping calm but, unable to keep down my inner discomposure, I forcibly changed the topic.

[YUZUKI]: “Still, Masatoyo-san, you’re really close to those children. They’re really attached to you.”

[MASATOYO]: “Yes. Those children don’t have any relatives.”

[MASATOYO]: “Actually, I was also in that same situation when I was young… and then, welcomed into the army by Shingen-sama, I came this far.”

[MASATOYO]: “That’s why, if I could become someone like that to them too, I play with them and look after them whenever I have time.”

[YUZUKI]: “… I see.”

[MASATOYO]: “It might be too much to say I could become like Shingen-sama… but at the very least I thought I could try to imitate that.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Amazing.”

[MASATOYO]: “Huh?”

[YUZUKI]: “Because offering a hand like that isn’t something everybody can do.”

[YUZUKI]: “That’s why, Masatoyo-san, you being able to do that… I think it’s amazing.”

[MASATOYO]: “I-It’s not that…”

[GIRL]: “Hyuu hyuu!”

[BOY]: “You guys should just daaate!”

[MASATOYO]: “Ah, h-hey you guys! When did you come back! Play over there!”

[CHILDREN]: “Ahahaha!”

Masatoyo-san, who was cautioning the children running away with smiles, seemed somewhat happy.

For some reason, seeing that sight seemed to bring happiness to me–

[MASATOYO]: “N-Now then. Getting back on track, let’s procure the supplies.”

[MASATOYO]: “Because the Takeda army’s future rests on our shoulders.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, I’ll do my best!”

    The cg I waited for 😆🙌💞 Masatoyo’s cute face…… 😍 and he likes children like Yukimura does 😍
    Oh by the way out of topic, I would like to greet happy birthday to the demon lord, Nobunaga (シ_ _)シ

      His embarrassed smile is toooooooo cuuuuute. Ahah, now that you mention it he and Yukimura are the most outspoken about children and playing with them |D;; although I think most of the leaders seem to like children, even surprisingly Nobunaga (he has a cute 2* card story where the Oda gang has to take care of a few kids LOL).

    Masatoyo-san tried to walk but a lot of children came running over joyfully from somewhere.

    Masatoyo does not have a weak presence for children, it seems that his lack of presence only affects adults.

    [GIRL]: “Hyuu hyuu!”

    [BOY]: “You guys should just daaate!”

    [MASATOYO]: “Ah, h-hey you guys! When did you come back! Play over there!”

    [CHILDREN]: “Ahahaha!”

    Love these children.

    Masatoyo has a bell on the red ribbon of his hair, he always says he has little presence, but he is as stealthy as my cat, when he walked, the bell did not ring and it was not broken. I do not know how he does it…

      Ilinox responded:
      June 23, 2018 at 09:28

      Yeah, haha, it’s pretty funny how the children can see him but not the adults. But then again it’s said that children have the clearest sight since they haven’t learnt any prejudices yet :’D (and they frequently see invisible friends and ghosts–).

      Omg imagine if he attached that bell as an attempt to help announce his presence to everyone but unfortunately he’s so sneaky and his presence is so small that even with a bell like that no one… notices him :’)).

    Waaa! What a beautiful images!! I love them! Thanks for sharing.

    That’s exactly how I imagined Masatoyo! Caring and gentle, with the children following him whenever he is in town. Also is nice to to know that bit of his background. And to see him blushing is priceless!

    Masatoyo really has a spot in my heart. Of course, Shingen’s is bigger, but yet… I like him a lot.

      <33! I gotta admit I was a bit surprised that he hung around children but mainly because the children could instantly see him LOL. I think I was expecting him to have trouble procuring supplies because no one would notice he was there or something, oops. Masatoyo is a really soft and genuinely nice guy so I can definitely see why you like him :D! (Unfortunately, a bit too timid for me but kfjhkfgjhfgjh).

    Let me out of topic for a while…
    I saw the newest gacha that they release again the old cards (ugh, I want that Kagemochi *5). But… Why they make it purchased first then you can get it..!! *sobs*

    Ehem, back to topic. Masatoyo, you doing it again, but I really like the part that they were teased by children in there, somehow it’s really cute (for me)..

    Can’t wait the next part~!! Thank you for your hard works~!! ^^

      Yeah, I want Kagemochi card too and many more 😭 why….. why….. 😭

        Hmm… What I’m afraid is, when they give us a 7 10-part ticket draw, we supposed to save it until this time…

        Well, we don’t know what developer gonna do with the game, they can give us surprise presents or bait-like gachas or else…

        Ilinox responded:
        June 23, 2018 at 07:25

        :”)) It makes sense as a business model to make the good stuff available to the payers to keep this game running but oh man yeah I winced at the amount of gems needed. 700 in total if you want to reach the last step for the ticket to guarantee your pull. although I think after that you still get a few pulls that guarantee you a 5* just not which one.

        Guys who are good with children is an instant cute point |D.

        Unfortunately, the 10-part tickets they usually give us can only be used with the normal gacha ;;;; they’re not available to be used in event gachas, limited gachas, or anything (which I think is super dumb because at this point there’s nothing I want out of the normal gacha–).

    [YUZUKI]: “Hiyah! M-Masatoyo-san…!? How long have you been here!?”

    maybe i should do a headcount how many times masatoyo did this?

    That smile was much gentler than usual and, even without putting it in words, it expressed how much he liked children.

    i really like guys who loved children.

    [MASATOYO]: “Actually, I was also in that same situation when I was young… and then, welcomed into the army by Shingen-sama, I came this far.”

    double checks history. no wonder why…

    [BOY]: “You guys should just daaate!”

    if it’s me… i would really take advantage of the situation.

    the cg is nice. but damn his eyes are closed!!! why!!!

      Ahahahaha… You said it ^^’a
      But I think the CG’s really cute if Masatoyo’s eyes are closed. And the the event release Masatoyo in chibi ver with open eyes (that’s mean you must spend your time to make sure your ranks are safe to get him)…

      Ilinox responded:
      June 23, 2018 at 07:23

      I feel like you wouldn’t be wrong to assume all instances of Masatoyo = someone being startled, haha, only on the odd occasion does no one act surprised when they see him. And OMG SAME about guy who like children. It’s really funny though because I myself hate children |D;; don’t get me wrong, I get really angry at anyone who mistreats children and if I had to interact with them I’d treat them like the moon but children aren’t really for me.

      Gasp! But what about Shingen and Masanobu and the others– ahahaha. I’m afraid Masatoyo’s gonna have his eyes closed pretty much 99% of the time as part of his design |D.

    D’awwww… Masatoyo really has an adorable blushing face.
    I like that sprite too. You really can tell from the expression that it’s an embarrassed smile. |D

    [GIRL]: “Hyuu hyuu!”
    [BOY]: “You guys should just daaate!”

    TBH, I would hate it if people do this to me, but the hypocrite in me likes to do this to people with interesting reactions… like Masatoyo. (¬‿¬ )

      Ilinox responded:
      June 23, 2018 at 07:20

      Heehee, gotta capture ALL the blushing faces!! LOL I feel the same way but when it’s happening to other people I just start snickering in the corner. I’m, uh, similar to Masamune in that I have a gut contrary reaction to anyone who tries to assume what I’m thinking or feeling so if people were like “omg you like so-and-so!!” or like “you guys should date” I’ll automatically be like “nope, and never ever now that you’ve said it” WHICH IS A TERRIBLE TERRIBLE HABIT. Is this why I’m still single– jk jk.

        I did it to my friends in uni, but when they did it to me, I lashed out to the point that we got distant after that. Terrible, terrible habit indeed. Lesson learned: don’t do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you.
        Nowadays, I’ll let do other people do that stuff instead, and like you, just snicker quietly in the corner when it happens. (Yep, in the end, I still cannot let go of good old schadenfreude :P)
