SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 4.1 ~

Chapter 4: Investigation, Find Himemiko!

In order to hold back the increase of yakuma, everyone joined forces, and the Sanada army began to search for Himemiko.

They visited the headman of a village to decipher old documents, but…

Chapter 4.1

[IMARI]: “It’s nice to meet you all from the Sanada army.”

[IMARI]: “I have something to say about the increase of yakuma which everyone was talking about just now.”

[YUZUKI]: (H-He appeared in front of everyone though… is that really okay!?)

.[SASUKE]: “Nope, nope, nope! Don’t say you have something to say!”

[SASUKE]: “You’re… a tanuki, right? Why’s a tanuki talking!?”

[SAIZOU]: “Could he be a type of demonic spirit?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Hrmm, so there really are spirits.”

[IMARI]: “N-No! I’m not a demonic spirit!”

[IMARI]: “I’m something like Himemiko-sama’s attendant.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Himemiko-sama’s attendant…? You?”

[SASUKE]: “I was told a lot of legends about Himemiko-sama when I was young, but… they’ve never talked about a tanuki attendant, you know?”

[IMARI]: “I-I’m telling the truth!”

[YUZUKI]: “H-Hey… is it okay for you to come out? Weren’t you trying to avoid meeting Yukimura-san and the others…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “…? You know this tanuki?”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-Yes. Actually… he taught me a lot of things about this world.”

[IMARI]: “That’s right! And I’ve been watching everyone in the Sanada army by her side until now.”

[IMARI]: “At the beginning, I thought commanders were dangerous and scary people. But seeing how you protected her desperately and took her in warmly I’m now convinced that you’re all really good people.”

[IMARI]: “That’s why I wanted to tell everyone what I know.”

[YUKIMURA]: “What you know? What exactly…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Could it be about the source behind the increasing yakuma numbers which we just spoke about?”

[IMARI]: “… Yes. You see… it might be connected to Himemiko-sama disappearing.”

[IMARI]: “Yakuma started appearing in Shinga after Himemiko-sama disappeared…”

[SAIZOU]: “Oh? So that is how it is. Conversely, if we were to find Himemiko-sama, the yakuma would no longer appear. Is that it?”

[YUKIMURA]: “I see. For sure, if it’s like that then it’d end without the people in this territory experiencing danger.”

[YUKIMURA]: “But… how do we actually do that? Is it that simple?”

[IMARI]: “… I’m really sorry, but I still don’t know whether the yakuma will stop appearing or not.”

[IMARI]: “However! I’m sure Himemiko-sama will know some kind of secret about the yakuma!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Hm. But the crucial point is where Himemiko-sama is. Do you know?”

[IMARI]: “N-No… I don’t know…”

[SASUKE]: “Hey, hey, what’s with that. In the end you’re saying that we can’t solve this yakuma problem right now?”

[IMARI]: “B-But there’s a clue.”


[IMARI]: “It’s… her!”

At Imari-kun’s words everyone’s gazes gathered on me. Rather than looking incredulous, it was more like they didn’t really understand why I came up at this point.

[YUKIMURA]: “Hm? What connection does she have with Himemiko-sama?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “She… it may be hard to believe, but she’s a girl who arrived from another world, you know?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “There shouldn’t be any common ground with Himemiko-sama.”

[YUZUKI]: “That’s true but, before Himemiko-sama disappeared, she seemed to have left behind these words. –“Look for the daughter who came from a parallel universe”.”

[IMARI]: “I don’t know why Himemiko-sama left behind those words.”

[IMARI]: “But… right now, the only clue we have that connects to Himemiko-sama is her!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Hm. Let me put the situation in order.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “The cause of yakuma appearing might be the disappearance of Himemiko-sama. And the clue to finding Himemiko-sama is this girl only.”

[YUKIMURA]: “And the clue to return her home to her original world might be Himemiko-sama… am I right?”

[IMARI]: “Yes! Exactly!”

[SASUKE]: “Ermm… so, in other words, what are we gonna do from here?”

[SAIZOU]: “Heh, is that not obvious.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “You mean we’re going to look for Himemiko-sama too…?”

[YUKIMURA]: “That’s right.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Finding Himemiko-sama is to protect everyone in this territory.”

[YUKIMURA]: “–In addition, it might lead to something for Yuzuki’s sake.”

[YUZUKI]: (Everyone…!)

[SASUKE]: “Ohh, two birds with one stone! Alriiiight, I’m fired up! Let’s hurry and gather information then!”

[SASUKE]: “As long as we need to find Himemiko-sama, here’s where my ability to gather information explodes–“

[SAIZOU]: “No, there’s no need. Reason being that there is no one qualified for this mission apart from me.”

[SASUKE]: “Hah? What basis are you saying that on! Listen up, you’re gonna stay at this castle.”

[SAIZOU]: “Heh… I am man who, with but a word, has the women in the town bringing me information one after another, you know? Where in the world is another qualified person apart from me?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “You always say that but… when people actually gather don’t they just scream and squeal and not bring any information?”

[SAIZOU]: “T-That… only happens now and then.”

[IMARI]: “Umm… are things going to be okay. I’m quickly becoming anxious.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Good grief, you three… If information is to be gathered, then the more people the better. Sasuke, Saizou, Kamanosuke, you three will go.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… I’m tired today. Going tomorrow is okay, right?”

[YUKIMURA]: “Ah, yeah. It’s late too, so it’s best to rest for today.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Also, brother, I want to check on the damage of the yakuma with my own eyes, so I’ll be going with the three of them.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Alright. Then Yuzuki and I will scrounge through the old documents in this castle.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Perhaps we might find some kind of clue related to Himemiko-sama.”

[YUKIMURA]: “From here on, we’ll be working together with you. So that you can return to your world as soon as possible.”

[YUKIMURA]: “We’ll use all our strength to be helpful, so let’s work hard together.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Thank you. It’s really reassuring to have everyone here.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Great. Everyone, let’s do our best tomorrow. For everyone in this territory… and for Yuzuki. We’ll definitely find Himemiko-sama’s whereabouts!”

    It’s nice to see Imari actually willing to come out! Once again, not too sure about Takeda or Mouri but all the rest, he was kinda forced to show up since they were threatening to kill her…

    [NOBUYUKI]: “Alright. Then Yuzuki and I will scrounge through the old documents in this castle.”
    Yass! Nobuyuki’s time!

    Thanks for translating!

      It makes me sad that Imari only thought the Sanada army was nice enough to appear by himself to them. C’mon, Oda and Toyotomi are nice enough to her too!! But the vampires in general are so villain-coded that he continues to hide from them I guess :’)).

      Haha, a tiny tiny Nobuyuki time! Thanks for commenting.

    Yuzuki/MC being referred to as the “daughter” in all routes gives me a funny feeling. I wonder if I’m just reading into it too much but I wonder if this contains more weight than just Himemiko being poetic and stuff

      Sorry to say that it’s just purely poetic /o\ the way it’s worded in Japanese just means “young girl” in a polite way.

      Yep. It’s the exact same phrase Himemiko says in every route at the beginning when Imari tells her about the world and stuff! Haha, we’re all getting very familiar with the formula in these routes :’)).
