SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 1.1 ~

Chapter 1: Showdown, Hordes of Yakuma!

Despite having just met, she was welcomed cheerfully into the Sanada army.

But as soon as she arrived at the castle there were reports of monsters called “yakuma” who appeared at a nearby village…!

Chapter 1.1

[SASUKE]: “Oh, there you are!”

[SASUKE]: “Yukimura asked me to come get you, so I came.”

[YUZUKI]: “T-Thank you very much.”

.[YUZUKI]: (Ah, this person saved me…)

[SASUKE]: “You look calmer than before but… there’s still an uneasy look, huh.”

[SASUKE]: “If there’s any problems in the future come tell me about anything, okay? I can show you around the castle, or anything, and be a great help!”

[SASUKE]: “Ah, by the way while we’re on the subject, there’s something super cool near the castle. Later, let’s go there together!”

[???]: “Stop there, Sasuke. I won’t allow that.”

[YUZUKI]: (H-He suddenly appeared…!? How in the world did he do that.)

[SAIZOU]: “Oh my? What’s the matter, miss. You’re looking at me so intensely…”

[SAIZOU]: “Oh no, I apologize. My beauty truly is a crime. In but a moment it has mesmerized you.”

[SASUKE]: “No… you’re wrong. She’s just surprised at your sudden entrance.”

[SAIZOU]: “In any case, miss, please rely on me to guide you around the territory, not Sasuke. I can deliver to you the most sublime sights.”

[SASUKE]: “Don’t kid yourself, Saizou! I’m gonna show her around this land!”

[SAIZOU]: “Hmph, since it’s you after all, let me guess you were intending to take her to the forest, no?”

[SAIZOU]: “Keep that sort of thing with your female monkeys.”

[SAIZOU]: “Miss, I am different from that man. I can guide you to places that will please you, you know?”

[SASUKE]: “W-Whaaat! There’s a bunch of fun things in the mountains and forests!”

[YUZUKI]: (B-Both of them have started fighting…)

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Fuuuaaah~…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… Huh. Where am I?”

[SASUKE]: “What, Kamanosuke, did you get lost again?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… No. I’m not lost. It’s annoying to remember the path, so I just don’t know the way to get to the main hall.”

[SASUKE]: “What’re you saying. That’s what it means to be lost.”

[SASUKE]: “Anyway, I feel like we’re forgetting something important…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “You can’t have forgotten… have you all, honestly.”

[SASUKE]: “Ah, Nobuyuki-sama!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Good gracious… none of you were coming to the main hall no matter how long we waited, so Yukimura grew worried, you know?”

[SASUKE]: “That’s right! You guys, we gotta head to the main hall quickly!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Oh dear…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Well then, it’s taken quite some time, but this time we will show you to the main hall. Come with me.”

[SASUKE]: “Sorry, Yukimura! I got too into talking and was late in coming!”

[SAIZOU]: “Heh… as I thought, even showing her around the castle seems to be too much responsibility for Sasuke.”

[SASUKE]: “What’d you say! In the first place, if you hadn’t appeared–!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Good gracious… You two, leave it at that!”

[YUKIMURA]: “Now, now. At any rate, everyone’s gathered so that’s good.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Why don’t we all introduce ourselves properly. First, may we start with you?”

[YUZUKI]: “S-Sure. My name is Yuzuki. It’s nice to meet everyone!”

[SASUKE]: “Hey, hey, we’re already friends, right?”

[SASUKE]: “In that case, speaking politely is stuffy so just talk normally, casual-like.”

[SASUKE]: “So, I’m Sarutobi Sasuke! Great to meet you!”

[YUZUKI]: “Erm… yes. Same.”

[SAIZOU]: “Heh… next is my turn then.”

[SAIZOU]: “I am the one and only ultimate ninja, gifted by the heavens with a beauty that enchants everything and with the strongest talent– Kirigakure Saizou! A pleasure.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… Fuaah.”

[SASUKE]: “Ah, right, right. This guy is Yuri Kamanosuke. Please get along with him.”

[YUZUKI]: “U-Um, nice to meet you?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… Ditto.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “And I am Sanada Nobuyuki. Over here is my younger brother, the general of the Sanada clan…”

[YUKIMURA]: “Sanada Yukimura. Once again, it’s nice to meet you.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, same here…”

[YUZUKI]: “… U-Um! Actually, until I’m closer with everyone, can I still talk like how I was doing before?”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m grateful for Sasuke’s consideration but in the end it’s a bit nerve-wracking…”

[SASUKE]: “Ehh… well, I won’t ask you to force yourself. Then just do it whenever you feel like it! By the way, any time is okay with us!”

[SAIZOU]: “How dare you reply on my behalf! Though I have no objections.”

[YUZUKI]: “T-Thank you very much.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Great! With this all the introductions are done, and now we can talk about Sanada territory with you…”

[SOLDIER]: “Yukimura-sama! It’s an emergency!”

[SASUKE]: “Mm? You like you’re in a rush, what’s up?”

[SOLDIER]: “Just now, reports have come in about yakuma appearing at a village in the vicinity of the castle town…!”

[YUKIMURA]: “What…!?”

[YUZUKI]: (Yakuma!? They mean that thing…)

[NOBUYUKI]: “Yakuma… I would like to ascertain the authenticity of those reports first, but…”

[YUKIMURA]: “While we’re like this, someone might get attacked. It’s not too late to think about things after we reach the village.”

[SASUKE]: “Ah, I see! It’s Yukimura’s spirt of acting anyway for the time being, huh.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Yes. Now that it’s become this, he absolutely won’t listen to anything more. Everyone, arrange preparations for departure.”

[SAIZOU]: “Heh, it is indeed like Yukimura. Is this called recklessness or boldness, I wonder.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… It already happens every time. Since it’s inevitable, I’ll go along.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Ah, by the way, what will you do?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “The defense of the castle is steadfast, but… you must be uneasy being left behind alone. Once there’s no one you know, you might feel lonely.”

[YUZUKI]: (Yakuma are really scary, but… I think I might be uneasy.)

[YUKIMURA]: “Please don’t look so anxious… It’s decided then! You’ll come together with us too.”

[YUZUKI]: “B-But… I won’t get in the way?”

[YUKIMURA]: “Don’t worry, it’s no problem. Rather, if anything were to happen, we’d feel reassured at being in a position to protect you.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Besides… I promised, right? That we won’t let you go through any danger.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yukimura-san…”

[YUKIMURA]: “That being the case, we should leave too. Let’s go and save everyone in that village.”

    SANADA KITAAAAAA~~!!

    man I thought you’d be having a hard time translating Saizou’s words but you proved me wrong. I used to hate that boi and his weird narcissism, but I think I like him a lot better now.

      Ahahaha, thank you. It took some thought to stretch it and make it a bit more pompous and overly showy in English but I think I’ve settled on a tone I’m happy with for him. Just gotta make sure Sasuke is more casual and then somehow fight to express how nonchalant and carefree/uninterested Kamanosuke is LOL.

    YESSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY SANADA!!!!!!!!

    [SAIZOU]: “Oh my? What’s the matter, miss. You’re looking at me so intensely…”
    [SAIZOU]: “Oh no, I apologize. My beauty truly is a crime. In but a moment it has mesmerized you.”
    [SASUKE]: “No… you’re wrong. She’s just surprised at your sudden entrance.”

    lmao I love their interactions!

    Should I be worried with how welcoming they are…

    Thank you so much for translating!!!

      They’re absolutely hilarious, especially Sasuke’s constant deadpan remarks to Saizou’s overly flamboyant speeches |D. You don’t have to worry at all! Sanada doesn’t have a single malicious bone! Thank you for commenting <3.

    Sanada route! Thank you!

    [SASUKE]: “Oh, there you are!”
    [SASUKE]: “Yukimura asked me to come get you, so I came.”

    I must say, I feel like this is Chapter 1.2… It doesn’t start like the others. It’s like they already knew her from the day before or something like that. And what about Imari-kun. He always appear at the end of the first chapter.
    It’s weird. I’m not mean to bother you or anything, but… Are you sure this is chapter 1.1 ?

      Ilinox responded:
      July 26, 2018 at 14:18

      You might be thinking of Chapter 0 the prologue for the armies? I went ahead and did those all in a row at the veeeeeeerryyy beginning so it’s been a while.

    Yay~ Finally the puppies time~!! XD

    As always, those two, Sasuke and Saizou… Stop fighting, Nobuyuki’s kinda tired to saw that every time LOL

    Thank you for your hard works ili~!! ^^

      Puppy playtime for all of us! Hahaha. I feel so bad for Nobuyuki constantly :’)).

    I was really looking forward to this route ever since reading through the Date route since I wanted to see how the parallels play out for rival armies (≧ω≦)ゞ and just seeing this first chapter is making me see the similarities between Kojuurou and Nobuyuki. Their stress and the mental torture they go through because of all these excitable and/or reckless puppies they have to look after must be over 9000 lmfao. If they weren’t in rival armies these two would most likely bond over their positions and discuss strategies over tea and shogi or smth.

    I’d pay to see Masamune and Yukimura being best friends and dorrmates in an AU though (all the lighthearted tsun-anese bromance). With Shigezane and the ninja trio being their noisy neighbors pfft.

      Ilinox responded:
      July 27, 2018 at 15:48

      It really is interesting to see the parallels and different mindsets of the armies lead to different outcomes (or like how Sanada deals with Date army coming into their territory, etc etc). LOL what SNB has taught me is that it’s suffering if you have any kind of affinity for planning or managing accounts because then you end up having to watch over all the younger and more reckless people. Even Mitsuhide is constantly worked to the bone by fixing everything Katsuie accidentally breaks. But Nobuyuki probably has it the worst of all of them because of just how everyone in this army is reckless |D at least Kojuurou can be somewhat at ease with Masamune’s schemes.

      Aw, that’d be so cute and even in Date’s route Masamune has this like… reluctant relationship with Yukimura LOL. Or more like Yukimura is like “yay, yay, let’s be friends!!” and Masamune is like “get away from me you optimistic and naive child” but Yukimura just lets those comments slide down his back like water on a duck.

        Pffft I can relate so much to the managing accounts thing because I play so many gacha games and have a weakness for rolling the gacha too much lmfao. Poor Nobuyuki and Mitsuhide indeed. There should be a special team called team babysitters starring Mitsuhide, Mitsunari, Kagemochi, Nobuharu, Nobuyuki and Kojuurou because it seems like they’re the one relied on to clean up the messes/smoothen creases on the plans thought up by their lords and take care of the children lmao

        Its so cute to see really. Its like a hesitant and tsundere puppy being chased by an energetic and cheerful puppy HNNNNNNNNNNG

      Yaay!! It’ll be such smooth sailing once these guys get caught up with the main story and then after tying everyone up we can finish off with Mouri :’D.

    “Keep that sort of thing with your female monkeys.” so you’re a playboy Sasuke (*≧▽≦)ノシ))
    And now the beginning of Yuzuki’s puppy sitting (*≧▽≦)ノシ))

      Ilinox responded:
      July 27, 2018 at 09:42

      If female monkeys count LOL Saizou is more just insulting him for having no friends but the wild monkeys in the mountains. Ehehe, I think MC almost counts as a puppy too and they all need to be babysat by poor tired Nobuyuki.

    July 26, 2018 at 02:39

    Yay! It’s Sanada time to shine!

    …though I’ll be happier if Saizou keeps his mouth shut.
    I wish I have Kamanosuke’s level of “don’t care”. |D
    Nobuyuki’s a tired mama. lol

    [YUKIMURA]: “Please don’t look so anxious… It’s decided then! You’ll come together with us too.”
    [YUZUKI]: “B-But… I won’t get in the way?”
    [YUKIMURA]: “Don’t worry, it’s no problem. Rather, if anything were to happen, we’d feel reassured at being in a position to protect you.”
    [YUKIMURA]: “Besides… I promised, right? That we won’t let you go through any danger.”
    [YUZUKI]: “Yukimura-san…”

    As always, the safest is next to the general, eh?

      Ilinox responded:
      July 27, 2018 at 09:41

      Puppy time! There’s nothing to worry about in his route cause it’s just tower defense and family shenanigans until like… chapter 6 LOL. Saizou grows on you once you realize he’s just some quirky dude and you let his words fly by you |D. But oh gosh Kamanosuke’s chill is indeed legendary.

      They always say that and then next thing you know they nearly get themselves killed by throwing themselves in front of the heroine LOL. I don’t think any of them have actually had training in fighting while protecting someone…

        July 30, 2018 at 02:39

        Can you call someone “grows on you” when you pretty much ignores what he/she says…? |D
        I wish for Kamanosuke’s chill because people like Saizou grates on my nerves too much. Rather than just ignoring their words, I wish I can ignore their voices altogether. This is why for me, one of the benefits of technological advancement is that people talk more on the internet and if someone annoys you, you can easily “block” them. :)

        Well, now they have a chance to train by trial and error. :))))

    why is it i like the sanada soldier sprite that the sanada’s themselves?

    Despite having just met, she was welcomed cheerfully into the Sanada army. SERIOUSLY?!?! hello??? im a stranger here. cant you at least be suspicious?

    [SAIZOU]: “Keep that sort of thing with your female monkeys.”
    well, i guess, i have monkeys to look forward to.

      @waterinegirl: Can you look at Yukimura, the little ball of sunshine and paragon of boundless optimism, and think he has a suspicious bone in him? lol Obviously, he’s going to be surrounded by like-minded people, though I think Nobuyuki’s more careful. Honestly, I see them as a bunch of excited, fearless, and curious puppies. XD

        everytime is see yukimara. all i can ever think of is he’s too sweet or too soft. everything that is too much is not good.

        Ilinox responded:
        July 27, 2018 at 09:39

        Haha, she was welcomed pretty cheerily into Takeda army too! I don’t think any of their members was too suspicious (Masakage was just being grumpy). But Sanada’s prominent point is their friendliness and boundless optimism :’)).

        Sanada soldiers aren’t too bad. I think the ugliest for me is Date’s soldiers– oops. For me it goes Mouri soldiers (gods they’re so pretty), Oda soldiers, Uesugi soldiers, Takeda and Toyotomi (? I actually can’t remember Toyotomi anymore oops) soldiers, Sanada soldiers, and then Date soldiers.
