SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 4.2 ~

Posted on Updated on

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 4.2

After seeing everyone off who left to gather information, Nobuyuki-san and I made our way to the Sanada army’s treasury.

[NOBUYUKI]: “Here, come in. This is the Sanada army’s treasury.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wow… there’s a lot of things being stored, huh.”

.[NOBUYUKI]: “Well, they aren’t all that valuable though.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “It seems like armies that govern other territories, like Oda and Toyotomi, have treasuries that are many times larger than this one.”

[YUZUKI]: “M-More than this one… I can’t imagine that at all.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Haha, me either.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Nevertheless, in this small treasury is packed the history of the Sanada army which has been handed down from our ancestors.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “That is why there’s a possibility that in here… might be a book or item relating to Himemiko-sama.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “While Yukimura and the others are collecting information, we’ll divide up these documents and search them.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay, got it!”

[YUZUKI]: “Still… there’s a huge amount of books and treasures. Will we really be able to find a clue about Himemiko-sama?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Hrm… indeed, I do have a little insecurity.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Because if it concerns a very ancient document, then even I can’t read the letters.”

[YUZUKI]: “R-Really!?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “It was only recently that the Sanada army became an independent faction as it is now.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “But history is, in its own way, there.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “From a very long time ago, before we became independent, our fathers and grandfathers… generations after generations have spoken of our history.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “–It was a long, long, long time ago before the Sanada clan was even created.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “In those days, many people amassed forces to fulfill their own desires and, destroying other forces, these conflicts happened as if every day.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Even if one force was destroyed, they would do battle again with another force immediately. Once that concluded, there would be another force– and so on.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Blood flowed and conflicts occurred daily in this Shinga and continued for years and decades…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “But then, on a certain day.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Putting aside where she came from, a single beautiful woman– Himemiko-sama, seemed to appear in Shinga.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Himemiko-sama was said to have brought non-human beings… in other words, us the “Gekka Tribe” into this world.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “The Gekka Tribe, wielding their mighty powers, seemed to put an end to the conflicts of humans in the blink of an eye.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “And, thereafter, there were no conflicts at all in Shinga and a peaceful world was created centred on Himemiko-sama.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Well, that is to say, Himemiko-sama is a symbol of peace to this country.”

[YUZUKI]: “So Shinga had that kind of history.”

[YUZUKI]: “But… if that’s the case, I wonder why Himemiko-sama disappeared.”

[YUZUKI]: “And why was I called to this world…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Well, even I only know of what is in the books. That’s why we’re looking for clues to Himemiko-sama in this treasury.”

[YUZUKI]: “Right. I’ll do my best.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Then let’s search from the books on the top shelf first.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “The old documents are stored in places we don’t use and the time Himemiko-sama appeared should also be when the history of the Sanada clan started.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “I’m certain we’ll be closer to clues in the past. Now, let’s first take a look at… the book at the very top.”

As Nobuyuki-san said this he placed a stand down and stood on top… though when he did he furrowed his brows slightly for some reason.

[NOBUYUKI]: “This stand… hasn’t been used much, so it doesn’t sit very well.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “I’m sorry, but could you hold it down from below?”

[YUZUKI]: “O-Okay. Got it.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Thank you. Let’s see, we’ll look at the books around here first–“

[YUZUKI]: (Huh? Right now, there was a cracking sound–)

[NOBUYUKI]: “Uwa, woah!?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Ouch. To think the stand would break…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Are you alright? You aren’t hurt?”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-Yes. I’m not hurt but…”

[YUZUKI]: (… His f-face is close…!)

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Being this close to your face is truly embarrassing. I’m sorry, I’ll move immediately.”

[YUZUKI]: “No, it’s oka… ow!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “What’s wrong!? Are you possibly hurt somewhere…”

[YUZUKI]: “My hair is j-just…!”

It looks like the moment we fell to the floor my hair caught on Nobuyuki-san’s sleeve button. I tried to untangle it immediately but…

[YUZUKI]: (Uu, the distance between us is so small I’m nervous… My f-fingers aren’t moving well…)

[NOBUYUKI]: “Is it okay? Can you disentangle it?”

Nobuyuki-san’s breath brushed my ear. I instinctively wanted to make a strange noise but somehow managed to suppress that and respond.

[YUZUKI]: “J-Just a bit more!… Ah, it’s free!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Ah, good… How are you? Can you stand?”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-Yes. Thank you…”

I borrowed Nobuyuki-san’s hand to stand up… I was okay and there was no pain anywhere. But my heart was still racing.

[NOBUYUKI]: “I’m truly sorry. You don’t feel pain anywhere?”

[YUZUKI]: “I-I’m fine! Thank you for worrying about me!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “That is good then… but if you start to hurt later, tell me–“

[YUKIMURA]: “Brother, where are youuu? Broooother?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Oh my, it’s Yukimura.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “What happened just now might cause an unnecessary misunderstanding, so let’s keep it a secret from Yukimura… Alright?”

[YUZUKI]: “O-Okay…”

[YUKIMURA]: “Hm?… Did something happen with you two?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “No, nothing. More importantly, how did the information gathering go?”

[YUKIMURA]: “Erm, there wasn’t any direct information but we’ve caught a small clue.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Apparently at the outskirts of our territory is a village elder who is very familiar with the past. He even seems to be able to read letters from the old times.”

[YUKIMURA]: “If I remember correctly, long ago, our dad talked about a book that was probably written about Himemiko-sama… but he couldn’t read the old characters, right?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Aah, I see. You have a good memory. If I’m not mistaken, that book should be here–“

Saying that, Nobuyuki-san went to a back shelf. There we only heard sounds of him searching through books.

[NOBUYUKI]: “Yukimura. I believe it’s this book, right?”

[YUKIMURA]: “Ah! It’s that! Then I’ll head over to the rumored village elder.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Yes, be careful.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Ah, but…”

[YUKIMURA]: “Hey, if you’re free, would you like to come with me together to the village?”

[YUKIMURA]: “You see, I’m not very good with traveling alone. And, uh, I was thinking it’d be lively and fun if you were there.”

[YUZUKI]: “R-Really? Um, I…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “I’ll be fine here alone. You two should go.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Really? Let’s go together then.”

[YUKIMURA]: “We’ll be heading out, brother.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Ah, wait one moment.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Thank you for helping me search. And do try not to let Yukimura push himself too hard. He’s the type that runs in right away.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Heeyyy, what are you doing there? Let’s hurry and go?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Look, that reckless man is calling. Go quickly.”

[YUZUKI]: “R-Right. We’ll be leaving now then.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Have a good time. And take care.”

    That CG… It’s amazing! Although I still wish that the heroine has eyes……

    A little unique with how Nobuyuki used the stand himself, I normally see something like the girl using the stand and something happening and she falls off etc… but it’s the reverse here. I would ask him, “Why would you still use a stand that you know is old” but the romantic aspect needs to be there!!!

    [YUKIMURA]: “You see, I’m not very good with traveling alone. And, uh, I was thinking it’d be lively and fun if you were there.”
    Niiiiiicccce Yukimura, just come in and take her away 😏😂😏

    Is it me or does it seem like Sanada is heavily on Yukimura, Nobuyuki got like 2/5 of the chapter……

    IT’S SO HARD FOR ME TO CHOOSE A FAVORITE IN SANADA!!!!! I really like Nobuyuki, Sasuke, Saizo and Kamanosuke but Yukimura’s great too! Imma wait until the story is finished so I can get a really good grasp on their characters. Who’s you favorite in Sanada? And thanks for the translation!

      I honestly wonder if ANYONE likes heroines without eyes in the year 2018. Most polls and everything I seem to hear on the Japanese side are that people want heroines with eyes |D. We’re definitely getting more eyes than we used to but there’s still these occasional games where they don’t unfortunately.

      That’s so true about the stand. I’m also surprised they didn’t do something like the guy picking the girl up so she can reach the thing for him but well we needed a fall somehow and Nobuyuki got used by the writers– haha.

      YUKIMURA IS ALWAYS SO AWKWARD WITH HIS INVITATIONS. Can he make his fondness for the heroine any more obvious? It’s like a neon sign and EVERYONE sees it LOL. Even the oblivious puppies of Sanada see it (but they fight him for her).

      It’s not your imagination. Sanada pushes the heroine and Yukimura together as much as Shingen gets pushed with his LOL. Hmm, I’d have to say my favorites are Yukimura (the leader halo is too strong) and Sasuke!

    Awww. Poor, sensible elder brother Nobuyuki pushing Yuzuki into Yukimura :< I kinda feel sorry for him because I know where this is going. The elder one always sets aside his feelings for his little brother. THIS IS SUCH AN OVERUSED TROPE IN SHOUJO MANGA AND WHILE ITS KIND OF A CLICHE IT.HURTS.EVERY.TIME I THINK ABOUT IT. I don't even like Nobuyuki that much but thinking about it hits me right in the feels.

      SAME but what also worries me is that Nobuyuki sometimes has forlorn expressions after doing this and I’m just unimpressed like “if you’re gonna get all hurt about it and nurse your sad feelings elsewhere, you shouldn’t have done it in the first place!” He’s just going ahead and having a pity party for himself when no one asked him to do that and no one even knows about MC’s and Yukimura’s true feelings. For all they know, Yukimura and MC could just end up being close siblings LOL.

    As Nobuyuki-san said this he placed a stand down and stood on top… though when he did he furrowed his brows slightly for some reason.

    Finally, someone who has common sense and use a stand to reach higher place! Too bad he doesn’t check first whether the stand can hold…. but well, it’s all for the sake of romantic scene. Heh.

    [YUKIMURA]: “You see, I’m not very good with traveling alone. And, uh, I was thinking it’d be lively and fun if you were there.”

    Why do I feel like it’s only an excuse? lol

      Ilinox responded:
      August 23, 2018 at 11:14

      The shelves must either be SUPER high that even someone like Nobuyuki needs a stand or he’s actually pretty short compare to everyone else :’)) Haha, it’s cute they chose to do the romantic scene like this instead of the classic “standing behind girl to pick out the book for her”.

      I don’t want to suspect Yukimura like that but I guess this isn’t a malicious lie :’D just him being really awkward and not knowing how to ask MC out LOL but I’m of the opinion that it’s 1000% an excuse.

    Ah…. I see, Yukimura is not used alone in traveling that’s why he ask her to go out with him in the first place ( ^∇^) It’s so funny when he mentioned Kamanosuke, hmm… Maybe in that time, he can’t find the 2 pups and only see Kamanosuke so that’s why there’s no choice and same for Nobuyuki when there’s an errand to do (*≧▽≦)ノシ))

        I actually thought Yukimura was lying really badly there to get her to go with him LOL but I don’t think we ever know for sure if he can’t handle traveling alone |D. Makes sense that he’s being honest since he was looking for Kamanosuke though and Yukimura doesn’t strike me as someone being that sneaky I guess.

    The hair on the button of the sleeve, that hurts, I remembered when my hair got stuck in the screws of the back of the school chair, then I got up and ended without a lock of hair. T.T
    [NOBUYUKI]: “What happened just now might cause an unnecessary misunderstanding, so let’s keep it a secret from Yukimura… Alright?”
    But Nobuyuki I love you, of all healed you are my favorite. I can not see the puppies as anything more than my little brothers.

      Getting hair caught anywhere is so super sad ;w; I’ve had short hair for a while now though so I have to say that accidents like that (getting my hair caught) are really rare now, phew. RIP to all the lost hair caught in places though and especially when using hair ties |D.

      Hahaha, I can never feel at ease with Nobuyuki because the way he keeps pushing the MC at Yukimura makes me feel like he’s keeping the MC at arm’s length :’)).

    OMG! Nobuyuki!
    But he’s so sweet. Instead of making a move on her, he gently pushed Yuzuki into his brother’s arms… Aww! He just won my heart!

    *make cough voice, like Masakage one XD*

    Ehm, put aside that. Actually I kinda forgot Sanada’s story in overall, only freshly remember the chapter 10 one. So think translations was helpful for me ^^

    Thank you for your hard works ili~!

      Took me a second to remember which one that was LOL but I think it’s more like Kageie thinking MC and Kagemochi were together kind of misunderstanding, ahaha.

      I have to admit I don’t remember the story for Sanada either so this is a nice refresher :’D. It’s pretty calm up until like Ch7 or Ch8 though.

    huh? unlike other clans, some guys gets the whole chapter. nobuyuki was just 1/5 of the chapter 4?

      Ilinox responded:
      August 21, 2018 at 11:23

      Sanada is heavily Yukimura-focused and if not Yukimura then it’s family-oriented |D and tries to include the others as much as possible.
