SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 1.3 ~

Posted on Updated on

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 1.3

[EVERYONE]: “Yukimura!”

[YUZUKI]: “No way… Yukimura-san…!”

Yukimura-san, who took a yakuma’s attack protecting me, was still collapsed on the ground when he looked at me with a desperate expression.

[YUKIMURA]: “Uhaa, haa… you aren’t hurt, are you!?”

[YUZUKI]: “I-I’m okay… but, Yukimura-san, you’re…!”

[YUKIMURA]: “I got hit in the b-back. But this isn’t anyth– ugugh!?”

[YUZUKI]: (It’s bleeding more and more rapidly… It’s because of me… that this…)

[YAKUMA]: “Guuuuuorrrgh!”

[YUKIMURA]: “Shit… at a time like this–“

[NOBUYUKI]: “Haaaagh!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Are you alright, Yukimura!”

[YUKIMURA]: “Brother… thanks. You saved us…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Sasuke, everyone, I’m leaving you all to maintain the front line! First, we need to treat Yukimura…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Can you help as well?”

[YUZUKI]: “… Y-Yes. I can.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Good, then let’s go. Yukimura, use my shoulder.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Thanks, you two… this really helps.”

[YUZUKI]: (Yukimura-san looks to be in pain… It’s because of me that he’s like this, so if there’s anything I can do then I need to do it.)

[YUKIMURA]: “Kgh…!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “This is… a deeper wound than I thought. It’ll take time to stop the bleeding and treat it.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “It might also call for a temporary retreat…”

[YUKIMURA]: “W-Wait, brother. I’m okay.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “However…”

[YUKIMURA]: “I’m really okay. Besides, there’s on way we can retreat from he– gugh!?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Certainly, it is as you say. We can’t possibly retreat from here and even I don’t wish to retreat.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Nevertheless, you can’t fight any further with that wound.”

[YUKIMURA]: “B-But, brother… if we retreat now then the villagers will…!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Ggh, there’s no choice.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “I feel the same. I didn’t want to use these means, but I will.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “… My apologies. This is an earnest request from a commander of the Sanada army and as Yukimura’s brother.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Please, I beg of you, for Yukimura’s sake… can you share your blood?”

[YUZUKI]: “M-My… blood?”

[YUKIMURA]: “N-No. Brother, you can’t be…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “You may have noticed already, but we are a different race from normal humans.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “We are called– werewolves.”

[YUZUKI]: “Were… wolves…?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Yes. I will explain in more detail about that at another time and date.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “The important thing here is that, much like how wild animals heal with blood and meat, werewolves can quicken the recovery of their wounds by taking into their bodies the blood of humans.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Nowadays, werewolves rarely drink human blood but… this is an emergency.”

[YUZUKI]: “T-Then… if Yukimura-san drinks my blood…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Yes. I’m sure Yukimura’s wound will heal.”

[YUKIMURA]: “W-Wait, brother! We can’t do that!”

[YUKIMURA]: “It hasn’t been long since she came to this world and now to have her blood drunk…”

[YUKIMURA]: “I don’t want to be saved by disregarding her feelings…”

[YUZUKI]: “It’s okay, Yukimura-san.”

[YUZUKI]: “I’ve been saved by you many times, Yukimura-san. That’s why I want to do what I can at the very least.”

[YUZUKI]: “… So, Yukimura-san.”

[YUZUKI]: “Please drink my blood.”

[YUKIMURA]: “…!!”

[YUKIMURA]: “I’m really thankful… for y-your feelings.”

Although Yukimura-san answered like that, his gaze slanted down, and he didn’t meet my eyes.

[YUKIMURA]: “B-But, um…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “What are you doing, Yukimura. She said it was fine… How about you strengthen your resolve and accept it?”

[YUKIMURA]: “E-Even if you say that! We just met, you know…!?”

[YUKIMURA]: “To drink her blood means, um… that I have to touch her, uh…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Good grief… In any case, I am returning to the battle. In order to protect Sanada’s people… decide on your resolution, Yukimura.”

[YUZUKI]: “……”

[YUKIMURA]: “……”

[YUKIMURA]: “… U-Um!”

[YUKIMURA]: “Erm… is it really okay? Drinking your blood means piercing you with fangs, um…”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m okay with that. If it’ll save Yukimura-san.”

[YUKIMURA]: “I-I’ve… had blood from fellow soldiers but it’s my first time having blood from a girl.”

[YUKIMURA]: “That’s why, um… I’ll try my hardest to be gentle but I’m sorry if I make you feel bad.”

[YUKIMURA]: “… Then, I’m doing it, okay?”

[YUZUKI]: “… Okay.”

[YUZUKI]: (… Yukimura-san’s face is close. His breath is hitting my neck…)

[YUKIMURA]: “… If you want me to stop, say so without hesitation, okay? I’ll do my best to stop immediately.”

[YUZUKI]: “…!”

[YUZUKI]: (It’s entering… I can feel Yukimura-san’s fangs. But, even though I’m being bitten, it doesn’t hurt. It’s a strange feeling.)

[YUKIMURA]: “… A-Are you alright? It doesn’t hurt?”

[YUZUKI]: “I-I’m okay. Don’t worry about me… ah…”

[YUKIMURA]: “R-Right… I’m sorry. Even though I know I should stop right away with how this is hurting you…”

[YUKIMURA]: “I-I can’t… somehow your blood is just so delicious… I can’t anymore…”

[YUKIMURA]: “Mngh…”

[YUZUKI]: (Yukimura-san is really into drinking. It’s kind of cute…)

[YUKIMURA]: “Fuahh…”

[YUKIMURA]: “Haa… haa… Thanks. Because of you, my body feels much better–“

[YUKIMURA]: “… Hm!? What is this feeling…”

[YUKIMURA]: “Eh? Huh!?”

[YUKIMURA]: “Power is flooding through my body…!”

[YUZUKI]: “Yukimura… -san?”

[YUKIMURA]: “W-What’s with this appearance?”

[YUKIMURA]: “No, more importantly… I don’t know why but power is overflowing from my whole body.”

[YUKIMURA]: “I can definitely save everyone with this!”

[YUKIMURA]: “Thank you. It’s because of you that I can fight again. I’m going now!”

[YUZUKI]: (W-What’s going on? What in the world is my blood…)

    I’m sorry…… I can’t…… WHY DO I THINK OF THEM AS SHIBA INU’s!!!!!!!
    Yukimura is so pure!!! I was just laughing so hard at him drinking scene…… WHY!!!!!

    I prefer his normal form more than the awakening but I always thought that there were blue-green tips on Yukimura’s hair? Although I don’t see it in that picture….? I didn’t actually notice it until now but the colors don’t match so well with yellow hair and the pink-ish uniform… A little sad since I really like Kuroyuki’s art

      Well, they definitely aren’t wolves with those curled tails– hahaha. I can’t stop laughing at how unimpressed Nobuyuki seems to be int his scene especially when Yukimura is freaking out about touching her to drink. Nobuyuki is just like “Are you serious??” before he leaves all fed up HAHA.

      It might just be a trick of the light (depending on what the background is) or there’s a really subtle gradient going on? Kinda like how Nobunaga has purple tips in his normal form. But yeah, I know what you mean, I loved Kuroyuki’s art in Black Wolves Saga but the awakened forms for Sanada are just ??? who decided to up the saturation so hard.

    OMG YAS!!! My dear Sanada army (read as “Yukimura the Shibes)!! THANK YOU SO MUCH for the translation!!! i luv youuuuuu <3 <3

    i remember cracking so much at the blood scene for no reasons…and absentmindedly nodding when MC said he was cute…i mean – my brain imagined a picture of a big young shibe licking your shoulder like crazy with his fluffy tail wagging happily. no offense seriously. he's an adourable shibe for me TvT

    Am i the only one who think his awaken form is kinda…well, cute? LOL may be i'm just wayyyy super-biased hahaha. and i have a thing for boys showing their deko (forehead) when they have a different look…so yeah lololol. that being said…i wholeheartedly agree with everyone else on the contrast…bright golden (yellow) hair is fine, but that pink idol outfit did shock me at a first glance. why pink.. why… now every single time i see his awaken form i am reminded of Shou-kun from Uta-puri. every. single. time. (no offence to Shou-kun though – love him)

      You’re welcome <33!

      I can't un-see the Sanada army as puppies, especially with their curled tails, so I definitely wanna call them Shibas as well LOL. I think uhh you're definitely in the minority of liking his awakening, haha, unfortunately the only one I can really stand is Sasuke's oops. I had to take a look at his original sprite because I thought he was showing his forehead there too, but I see what you mean now |D it went from parted to just a little slicked back, huh.

      SOBS I'm sorry there's just really weird saturation going on with the Sanada army awakenings, lmao, every time I look at their outfits it's just ??? But I'm glad you like them at least!!

    How can anyone say “it’s cute” when someone is drinking your blood? Sensual, maybe, but cute? Although, being honest, the expression of Yukimura in the CG IS cute.
    But then, I cannot stop imagining sweet Yukimura holding some soldier, kissing—I mean– drinking from his neck, just like that…
    Maybe I won’t like him that much…

    Anyway, I must say that I don’t like the transformed version of Yukimura. I don’t even like the normal version. Actually, I don’t like the art for the entire Sanada army at all. It’s so contrasting from the others… like they don’t belong in this game.

      Ilinox responded:
      July 30, 2018 at 19:59

      That’s a good question |D;; unless he’s just doing something like lapping at her blood?? But I mean comparing his CG to something like Nobunaga’s– wwwwwww or even Shingen and Kenshin. They were all definitely smooth charmers with no hesitation.

      LOLOL WHAT HAVE YOU DONE PUTTING THAT IMAGE IN MY HEAD. I was thinking that in situations like that the person just holds out their arm and you just bite the arm?? Or maybe they just cut their palm or something… oh boy (how often do they snack on their soldiers).

      Haha, I kind of understand what you mean |D;; Kuroyuki’s art looks best when it’s all by itself I think. Her art also tends to lean on the slender side (I bet suoh’s would look just as weird being included even though I still wish for a Tokugawa army with suoh as the artist–).

    Yukimura seemed so innocent….so so innocent. But now I know why everyone’s been saying to watch for the wolf hidden in sheep skin in Sanada Army. I actuallly thought that he would be the typical Mr. Charming, but wow, busting those lines …. O////O This is something completely unrelated to the Sanada Army main story but I saw on your twitter feed on wordpress about the hideyoshi 2* story, and I was wondering if you were willing to translate it… maybe?

      Ilinox responded:
      July 30, 2018 at 10:32

      Hahaha, he’s still somewhat innocent I think! He’s more like a high school boy? At least that’s how it comes off to me |D;; like he’s feeling his way around being with a girl but he’s still a guy in the end, hehe. It’ll probably be more apparent the further we go into Sanada route but he blushes a lot so LOL.

      Ohh, hmm, I don’t have any particular plans to translate it. There’s a lot of cute 2* stories like that in general so if I started translating them I’m afraid it’d never end /o\. My priority right now is catching up with the main stories (and all other card stories are just things I really really couldn’t keep myself back from sharing, ahaha).

    [YUKIMURA]: “I-I’ve… had blood from fellow soldiers but it’s my first time having blood from a girl.”

    Oh. OH. OOOOH.
    I had an inkling that considering who they are, they are very likely to have had drunk blood from humans, but only now it gets explicitly mentioned? “Fellow soldiers” though… hmmm. I wonder how that looks like.

    But yeah, as euurme says, for someone who looks so innocent, this scene is soooo suggestive?? lol

    [YUZUKI]: (Yukimura-san is really into drinking. It’s kind of cute…)

    ^out of context though, I imagine this as Yukimura chugging on a lot of sake. |D

    …and ugh, Yukimura’s awakened form is one of those “weird” ones for me. Not a good color combination. He looks sick with that hair, and that pink attire is just a big no-no for me. And when his usual look is already nice too!

      Ilinox responded:
      July 30, 2018 at 10:29

      Mhm, I’ve been wondering about that too since a lot of the armies mention offhandedly that human blood increases their recovery. So they had to have tried it at one point, right? I’m just imagining some poor soldier getting selected for a chomp to boost recovery… LOL. But it’s probably just a last resort thing and only increases their recovery by double or something, not the instantaneous recovery the heroine provides as well as actual awakening.

      I’M AFRAID THE WHOLE SANADA ARMY IS LIKE THAT. I don’t know if they were trying something or what LOL. The other artists for their armies just went with the safe inversion of colors (if they were wearing something light then they’d wear something dark, etc) but for Sanada it was like they went crazy with saturation or just… neon-fied everything. Someone mentioned that it looked like Yukimura had mustard hair and now I can’t unsee that…

        July 30, 2018 at 21:27

        Err, about art… Yeah I found the combination color in Yukimura’s awakening form is totally crashed, you can’t make pink and yellow together in one place, too contrast even me. But about others… It’s still can acceptable I think, but I like to hear your comments about all member’s awakening form, ili…

        Ilinox responded:
        July 30, 2018 at 22:40

        Oh, hmm, I have to admit that my memory for their awakened versions is kind of foggy because I try not to look at them (that’s how much I dislike their awakened versions LOL) and I don’t generally use the Sanada army ever because all my strongest cards are with Oda and Toyotomi. But, going from my memory, these are my impressions:

        Yukimura: NOPE that mustard hair is just awful.
        Nobuyuki: His coloring is actually okay but I HATE that weird double shoulder-guard. Like how does that even work?!
        Sasuke: I actually think he becomes pretty cute! I don’t mind this one though the green hair is a bit overwhelming. But he’s probably the best in terms of looks in the Sanada army for me.
        Saizou: I think his color scheme is pretty good too. Light pink! But I don’t really like his design.
        Kamanosuke: I actually really like his hoodie so his awakened version, while it has okay colors, is a step down from his normal appearance.

    Akh finally I can back again to read the story after done my !!works… ^^
    And, saw newest tweet from official page, OMG those Kenshin in onmouji clothes~!! *try hard not to scream loudly XD* And the newest event, I kinda curious about Masamune since… Haven’t heard good news that Umehara will back, so yeah… What happened to the voice?

    Ehm, back to Sanada’s story. Well, now Yukimura reminds me to Masakage, and that’s kinda cute and funny for me, but hey why both of you take this as your first time, even you guys always drinks blood from another nameless soldiers? XD

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

      Ilinox responded:
      July 30, 2018 at 10:26

      I’m glad we finally get to use the tickets from that all-army event waaaaaaaay back LOL now time to pray that onmyouji Kenshin comes home :’)) my luck has been in shambles recently though.

      News was just released yesterday that Umehara has been discharged from the hospital and gradually resuming his activities again :> !! Good news all around.

      LOL they’re too busy being men and training and stuff to really have any experience with girls, I suppose. But then I guess that makes you wonder how all the other men are so chill. HMMMM.

        leohikarusora said:
        July 30, 2018 at 21:20

        Yey, cheers for Umehara-san~!! I’m glad that he was discharged, but I hope he didn’t overwork since if I recall again it’s have been 2 months, and in October he’ll take Goblin Slayer and Gakuen Babysitters OVA casts. Pray for Umehara-san’s health…

        Hmmm, I hope that everyone who want onmyouji Kenshin will get it (included me ofc)… And those tickets, I already tired since I take care of 4 RNG games at the same time (another grinding for me), and I only get 1 ticket argh

        But if I can request… Will you translate the Kagemochi card from the last event? Almost there and I can get him T^T

        Ilinox responded:
        July 30, 2018 at 22:35

        Unfortunately, because Kagemochi’s card was part of an event, I won’t be translating his card until I get around to that event itself (whenever that’ll be sjhgjsfhfghfh). I’ve decided that with the way the events are set up and how their cards are periods of time IN those events that I’d want to translate events + all their cards in chronological order so they make one story chain.

        leohikarusora said:
        July 31, 2018 at 10:01

        Akh, don’t worry don’t worry… It’s a shame for myself since I can’t get the card (plus that card was attack AOE, damn it why I can’t get those card, just like Masamune event that included Goemon). But I appreciate your decision… Hope those events will come again, but yeah, I can’t suggest what those developer is think at all

    July 28, 2018 at 20:46

    You know, for someone so innocent Yukimura had the…most suggestive “first time” blood drinking scene out of all the daimyos ifyouknowwhatImean ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Yuzuki’s lines of “ITS ENTERING” and “YUKIMURA-SAN IS SO INTO DRINKING” made me blush so hard and imagining Daiki Yamashita saying something like “I-I can’t….” as if he can’t stop himself from doing something he shouldn’t omg goodbyemyovaries.

    YUKIMURA : “That’s why, um… I’ll try my hardest to be gentle but I’m sorry if I make you feel bad.”

    omfg forgive me for I have sinned my mind went straight to the trash heap where I belong right after this

      Ilinox responded:
      July 29, 2018 at 10:33

      L M A O. I mean, well, I guess they do liken the act of drinking blood to being something like kissing (that’s what Masakage gets all flustered about) so I’m sure you’re not wrong to imagine it as something more ;))

      July 30, 2018 at 13:25

    Oh so he has drink blood from his soldier.

    Can i have nobuyuki. He’s so mature

      Ilinox responded:
      July 29, 2018 at 10:32

      I had to do a double take there because if it’s already normal for them to drink blood from other people… huh. I guess this confirms that most of the army is made up of normal people and it’s only really the commanders who are werewolves, vampires, or demons? |D;; Imagine being the poor nameless soldier who is just a mini-snack for your commander to give them a power boost.

    Reggie said:
    July 28, 2018 at 03:15

    They really came from Takeda and he has same thinking as Masakage at drinking her blood but more exaggerated XD. Don’t worry Yukimura you’re still a boy but soon you’ll be a man someday! (ノ>▽<。)ノ

      Reggie said:
      July 28, 2018 at 04:21

      And this is unrelated but it’s ok if I ask? In the interactions, did they add another interactions? Because I encounter an interaction of Kagekatsu and Kanetsugu that I never read before where Kagekatsu hide Yuzuki in some secret room in the castle because of the surprise attack of the enemy and in Kanetsugu they take shelter because of rain.

        Ilinox responded:
        July 28, 2018 at 08:11

        Haha, oh gosh, I actually think Masakage might be older than Yukimura though? That’s such a weird thing to wrap my head around but since Masakage is around Shingen, Masatoyo, and Masanobu’s age… and Yukimura looks much younger than Shingen… LOL.

        I don’t think so ;;; at least I haven’t seen any new ones for the ones I’ve already done whenever I occasionally complete their cards and see a scene. There’s 40 potion scenes in general though for each character, so are you sure you’ve seen them all before? |D
