SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 3.5 ~

Chapter 3: Decisive Battle, Counter Attack Plan at the Castle!

A large horde of yakuma advanced on the castle!

These weren’t opponents they could fight directly, but in order to get through this pinch they carried out a strategy!

Chapter 3.5

[YUKIMURA]: “Now then, in some way or another, the castle’s repairs are done. Everyone, great work.”

[SASUKE]: “Haa~, we’re done~! Food time, food~!”

[SAIZOU]: “Kamanosuke, you worked unusually hard as well. Heh, I praise you.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I’m already dead tired… So sleepy…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Sorry to bring this up while everyone’s tired, but there’s something I’d like to talk about. Everyone, stay behind in the main hall after dinner.”

Soon after we finished cleaning up after dinner, Nobuyuki-san began to talk.

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Now, it’s fortunate that the castle repairs are finished, but we’re still in a situation where we cannot be careless.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Because it would not be strange at all for the yakuma horde to appear soon again.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “So, I would like to discuss countermeasures towards future yakuma.”

[SASUKE]: “Hrmm, it’s true that recently the yakuma numbers seems to have grown a lot.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Yeah, I’ve never seen such a yakuma horde up to now.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Until now, we’ve just taken out the yakuma that appeared close to towns and villages, but…”

[YUKIMURA]: “If they continue to increase in numbers at this rate, we might not be able to handle it soon.”

[YUZUKI]: “Um… do we not know the reason why the numbers of yakuma have grown?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “We have absolutely no idea, because we know nearly nothing about yakuma.”

[YUZUKI]: “Really?”

[SAIZOU]: “Yes. Reason being that those disgusting creatures were never here in the past. I believe they suddenly appeared a short while ago…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “And then lately they’ve suddenly grown in numbers, huh… Fuuah~… I wonder why.”

[SASUKE]: “Hey, Kamanosuke, don’t yawn in the middle of a meeting.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… That’s because it’s annoying though. We don’t know the reason the yakuma are growing in numbers even if we think about it.”

[YUKIMURA]: “… The increasing numbers of yakuma and that reason, huh.”

[YUKIMURA]: “We might be better off searching for their nest… How about that?”

[YUKIMURA]: “If we know their home, we might be able to get some clue on their way of life.”

[SASUKE]: “I know what you’re saying, Yukimura, but how are we gonna search for a yakuma nest? We don’t even know yet if they have that.”

[SAIZOU]: “It’s reasonable to eradicate them at the source. However, seeing that we do not know their numbers or strength, it is a dangerous path.”

[YUKIMURA]: “On the other hand, leaving things like this might bring harm to the villagers and townspeople next time.”

[YUKIMURA]: “… That’s the only thing we need to absolutely avoid.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… But, in the end, if we don’t know then we don’t know even if we think about it.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “That’s right… so long as we have no information on yakuma, it is difficult for us to deal with them…”

Unable to continue the discussion, the room became deathly silent. Even though I was only listening to them talk, everyone’s frustration was painfully felt.

What broke that heavy silence was… a young and bright voice.

[???]: “Excuse me, everyone! Please listen to what I have to say!”

[YUZUKI]: (Huh? This voice, no way…)

[YUKIMURA]: “Hm, who? Did someone just talk?”

[SASUKE]: “The only person who talks about himself like that is Kamanosuke.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Ehh~… that wasn’t me.”

[IMARI]: “Yes, it’s me! I spoke.”

[YUKIMURA]: “… Wha!? T-This thing is…”

[SASUKE]: “A tanuki!?”

[SAIZOU]: “Moreover…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “It spoke…?”

[YUZUKI]: (Whaaat. What’s going on? Is it okay for him to appear in front of everyone!?)

(T/N: Yay, more lost in translation stuff maybe |D but basically Imari uses the pronoun “boku” to refer to himself and Kamanosuke is the only other one that does that in the Sanada army, which is why Sasuke mentions that.)

    Imari appears! And their reactions, oh jeez 😂😂😂

    I’m not too sure about Takeda or Mouri but Imari never shows up in front of the vampire clans huh…… I mean, it might be dangerous judging from the leaders’ personalities but… HONESTLY I just want him to appear… They aren’t so bad if you’re on their route but if you’re not… (Masamune in Uesugi though, BRUTAL!!!!!)
    Thanks for translating!

      I honestly don’t think Hideyoshi would be that bad with Imari’s appearance |D;; Nobunaga is a toss-up but yeah it’s interesting that Imari never shows on the vampire routes. I… don’t think he’s shown himself yet in Takeda and I can’t remember if he does. It’s hard to keep track of what happens on which route sometimes.

      Haha, the way the leaders appear in other routes is always so interesting because you get to see just where their reputation comes from and how they act towards their enemies :’D like how cold Kenshin is and how unforgiving Shingen can be.

    Hmm… That means Imari was appear in Uesugi (because Kagemochi), Date (to save Yuzuki), and Sanada to giving them clue. And even I want him to appear in Takeda, the story was already that long and even Yuzuki didn’t tell Shingen and others about Himemiko’s request…

    Plus, I have bad feeling if he appears in Oda, Toyotomi and Mouri (you know, Nobunaga was sharp, Hideyoshi was tricky (sorry ili X( ), and Motonari was… I don’t know, I can’t read his character after all)

      I could have sworn Imari appears in Takeda one day but I might be remembering things wrong. It’s interesting how they did that though /o\ and I wonder why Imari hasn’t bothered revealing himself to Takeda because I think Shingen has proven what a chivalrous and nice person he is too. I don’t think the MC has told anyone of Himemiko’s request except for Date, but that was because Date was right there. I think Uesugi was present for theirs too but my memory is pretty shoddy about that, oops.

      LOL you don’t have to apologize for anything you say about my biases :”D I’m fully aware that the majority of them have awful personalities or aren’t exactly stellar people– *cough Touji cough*. I think it should be okay for him to appear in all the other routes by now but I can understand why Imari would be super hesitant at appearing in front of Nobunaga. Mouri has a weird connection with Himemiko so I can see why he’s hesitant about that too (at one point Mouri was gonna march into the capital and go to war against Himemiko, so…).

        IIRC, the Uesugi and Sanada was know about Himemiko’s request because they was right there (but for Sanada, only Yukimura and Nobuyuki who knows about the request). Hmm… About Takeda, I remember that Imari was appear but not like when in Date, Uesugi, and Sanada one, but still hope that Imari’ll appear officially in Takeda.

        Wait a sec. Mouri gonna march into capital and go war against Himemiko? Whaaat?? Even I already open the story, I didn’t understand it at all since I really hate Takakage and I can’t read Motonari’s mind :(
        Also, that shota (forgot the name), please stay away from me

        It was explained during the extremely long history lesson for Mouri |D;; but yeah in the past Motonari was against Himemiko’s philosophy and was gonna wage war against her (and the rest of the Gekkazoku) but during his march to the capital he picked up Takakage, Motoharu, and Takamoto, and had a change of heart and became peace-loving instead to raise the next generation without bloodshed :”D. He’s like Nobunaga but on the opposite spectrum LOL.

    -_-… Why am I lmao at the appearance of Imari all of a sudden? Oh, that’s right! Because he gives great comedy relief in the plots! LOL XD

    finally you decide to appear of everyone!

    you should have done that in shingen route, toyotomi route

    but never on oda.

      Ilinox responded:
      August 17, 2018 at 09:41

      I don’t know about Toyotomi route either LOL I swear Hideyoshi is on par with Nobunaga in danger levels ;;; I’d worry for Imari in general with any of the vampire clans.
