SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 5.2 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 5: Investigation, Believe in Friends!

Obtaining the information of the item Himemiko gifted, called a “sacred treasure”, they were eager to go and search for it immediately.

But just when they were about to, Kamanosuke suddenly went missing.

Chapter 5.2

We were trying to find Kamanosuke-san who had disappeared in the middle of a conversation.

[YUKIMURA]: “We’ll take a look around outside first. Can I ask you to look inside the castle?”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay. I’ll do my best too!”

I replied like that to Yukimura-san, who was full of energy. But still…

[YUZUKI]: (Kamanosuke-san, I really wonder where he went…)

To be honest I was uneasy. It seemed like Kamanosuke-san left suddenly in anger.

[YUZUKI]: (Kamanosuke-san… why exactly did you do that?)

[YUKIMURA]: “… It’ll be alright.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh?”

[YUKIMURA]: “That anxious look on your face doesn’t suit you. If it’s about Kamanosuke, you don’t have to worry because he’ll be found right away.”

[SAIZOU]: “Moreover, we are all looking for him, you know? Even Kamanosuke will not be able to escape.”

[SASUKE]: “That’s why you don’t have to worry and just wait here. OK?”

Drawn in by how everyone said that with a smile, I felt slightly relieved.

[YUZUKI]: “Right. I’m reassured with everyone’s words, so thank you.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Good. Then we should all depart. I’m entrusting the castle’s search to you.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, I’ll do my best!”

[YUZUKI]: (Alright. I have to work hard in my own way too then!)

[YUZUKI]: (First, I think I’ll try searching the gardens–)

[KAMANOSUKE]: “It looks like Yukimura and the others have gone…”


[YUZUKI]: “Kamanosuke-san! You were this close!?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “It’s annoying to run far away… and there’s no meaning if I’m the only one gone.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh? What do you mean by that?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Nothing… it doesn’t matter, does it.”

[YUZUKI]: “Um… everyone’s worried, you know?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… Hmmm, really.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “But, more importantly right now.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh?”

Kamanosuke-san suddenly shrunk the distance between us in an instant. Our faces were so close they almost seemed to hit and, reflexively, my heartbeat quickened.

And then Kamanosuke-san–

[YUZUKI]: “K-Kamanosuke-san!? Why are you grabbing my hand…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Listen, come with me.”

[YUZUKI]: (W-What’s going on? Where exactly is he taking me!?)

[YUZUKI]: “H-Hey, Kamanosuke-san.”


[YUZUKI]: “What are we doing after this? We’ve gone pretty far from the castle…”


[YUZUKI]: (W-What do I do… Kamanosuke-san hasn’t said a word since then.)

[YUZUKI]: (I know Kamanosuke-san isn’t a bad person so I’m not scared, but…)

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I don’t know…”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I don’t know what to do after this.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “But, anyway, I won’t go back home to Yukimura right now… because Yukimura broke his promise with me.”

[YUZUKI]: “P-Promise…? What do you mean?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Yukimura always says he treasures his friends… that everyone in the Sanada army is the same as family…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “No matter what happens, you protect friends. He said he wanted everyone in the Sanada army to live in happiness… and he promised me that he’d grant that dream…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “That’s why I followed Yukimura.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I only want these every day fun things right now to continue. It’s fun to live with Yukimura and the others… it became even more fun after you came.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Like how Yukimura treasures everyone, I also treasure these friends.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Yet Yukimura is trying to return you to your old world.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Yukimura… thinks it’s okay if you’re gone, even though you’re one of our important friends. He forgot his promise with me…”

[YUZUKI]: “Kamanosuke-san…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Plus, do you remember? I said we might be two peas in a pod…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Before, we talked about taking a walk together, right?”

[YUZUKI]: “Now that you mention it…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “We’re the same.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I like to take walks too. It feels nice walking outside.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “We might be… two peas in a pod.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “How about we take a walk together next time? I’ll show you my favorite trails.”

[YUZUKI]: “Sure, thank you. I look forward to it.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “At that time, you said you also liked walks.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “We promised to take a walk together one day.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes… that’s right, huh.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I haven’t fulfilled that promise yet. I want to continue living happily with you… with everyone. That’s why I don’t want you to go home.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “What about you? Do you hate us? If you don’t, then isn’t it okay to stay here forever. Do you really want to go home?”

[YUZUKI]: “T-That’s…”

[YUZUKI]: (Everyone’s kind and gentle and I’ll be sad too not being able to see them…)

[YUZUKI]: (Even more so now that we’ve become friends…)

[YUZUKI]: “……”

[YUZUKI]: “But…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Hey, don’t go home. If you say you won’t go home then I’ll go back to the castle too. And then let’s convince Yukimura and the others together.”

Saying that, Kamanosuke-san took one step closer to me. He had a sad and pained expression.

I couldn’t say any words at that expression which I was seeing for the first time.

[YUZUKI]: (What should… I do…?)

[???]: “Good gracious… you’re always lacking with your words, Kamanosuke.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Eh? This voice…”

    [YUZUKI]: “Wha… WHAAAA!?”
    [YUZUKI]: “Kamanosuke-san! You were this close!?”
    Nice Kamanosuke, sasuga ninja!

    I didn’t realize that Kamanosuke’s persuasion would be guilt-tripping until I read the comments… actually, that would be an accurate word for it

    I can understand his feelings and that sometimes, you just need to get it out buuuuut, Kamanosuke-san, guilt-tripping someone isn’t the way to do it…… Well, saying it straight to Yuzuki actually might make her think about her choices and what effects it would have, so in some ways, this probably might help Yuzuki look at things more clearer
    Thanks for the translation!

      Unfortunately, Kamanosuke’s actions here seems to have left a bad impression on most people in the comments |D but yeah while I like that he’s blunt about it and lays it out on the table. He really pressures the heroine in a way that’s not quite fair, ahah.

    2 peas in a pod…. you should say that to Hideyoshi and of course not in a romantic way……😳 lol joke
    I’m so weak at this kind of guy, I can’t get angry like the time when Hideyoshi hide the original mirror, I just feel pity on them…..

      Kamanosuke and Hideyoshi? I suppose they’re similar in trying to get her to stay with them hsjhsjh but I really don’t like Kamanosuke’s guilt-tripping method ;w; at least just straight up deceive me or don’t take my feelings into account a la Hideyoshi– HAHA.

    Hmmmm aside from not going far for energy cost, it could be intentional to wait for everyone to split up the search and corner Yuzuki judging from his response. What he’s doing is not very savory to say the least but this chapter provided some insight into his character aside from just being the sleepy dude of the trio and why he supports Yukimura.

    But, it seems here he misinterpreted Yukimura’s promise and viewed it through a childlike lens being to everyone must stay together in order to be happy. Though to maintain happiness one have to consider the needs and desires of others and sometimes in order to achieve that would require to venture outside of staying put with everyone else. It’s not easy but every one has to say good bye at some points in their lives. Kamanosuke probably struggles to understand or he’s just choosing to ignore it to assuage his own insecurity that his new friend Yuzuki just like any other person has important friends and family in her life aside from the Sanada army. There’s also the fact that she didn’t come to Shinga on her own volition so it is only natural for Yukimura to help her return to her own world.

    Tsk, tsk now Kamanosuke a good friend does not try to take advantage of their friend’s good nature by guilt tripping them into agreeing with their ideas to satisfy their own sense of normalcy and stability.

      I love this long comment and analysis and ooh you bring up really good points and you’re probably right! With everyone split up like that, Kamanosuke will get a head start in wherever he took MC, especially since the other guys will have to wait to meet up with each other again to consolidate their findings. So, in this sense, Kamanosuke will only have to worry about running into one of the searching people. Damn, that’s actually a really clever move.

      YOUR LAST SENTENCE THOUGH!! EXACTLY!! Friends aren’t supposed to guilt trip their friends into doing things or staying cause that’ll just breed resentment :’)).

    [YUZUKI]: “Kamanosuke-san! You were this close!?”
    [KAMANOSUKE]: “It’s annoying to run far away… and there’s no meaning if I’m the only one gone.”

    With his personality, it’s more likely he’s not going far away…. (^-^”)

    [KAMANOSUKE]: “What about you? Do you hate us? If you don’t, then isn’t it okay to stay here forever. Do you really want to go home?”

    It’s not about hate…
    …He still needs a lot of growing up to do, huh.

      It’d be the funniest thing if he was just sitting in his room and no one thought to check that place at all. Especially since the others are going to look outside and MC is the one on castle duty |D

      Mhmmm, this whole conversation shows just how young Kamanosuke (and the other ninjas?) are. Just because she wants to go home doesn’t automatically mean she hates you all, you silly puppy!

    Thankfully Saizou was appear at the right time… I don’t want to force to stay because that reason, I think what Yukimura says to help her wasn’t break any promise. Well that’s my opinion

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

      Ilinox responded:
      August 26, 2018 at 23:02

      Mhm, I think forcing anyone into a decision by twisting their arm like that (or more like kindness of their heart) is a really unfair move ><. It's funny I say that though when I'm always applauding Hideyoshi's sneaky methods LOL and principle of doing whatever it takes to get what he wants. But Kamanosuke's actions of dragging her out here to give her that ultimatum is a bit ://.

      You're welcome and thanks for commenting all the time!!

    What is it with Kamanosuke and his yandere personality? I never suspected he would be like that.
    And the one at the end… I suspect it is Nobuyuki.

      August 26, 2018 at 22:59

      Surprise!! Hahaha, this chapter and Kamanosuke’s actions took me aback too. And I hate how he’s trying to manipulate her like that especially because the MC is usually too kind for her own good and wouldn’t want to mess up the Sanada army dynamics :’)). Who could it be I wonder~.

    “If i fell in love with someone why not.” that’s what my selfish side will say

    Its funny when you thought he ran way to an unknwon place turns out he’s nearby

      Like they always say, the best place to hide (or go) is where your opponents don’t expect. So moving closer to the enemy or literally hiding right under their noses is gonna be the best spot |D.

      Ahaha, to be honest I actually really disliked Kamanosuke’s actions here because he’s pushing her hard to answer in a bad way, since he’s implying he won’t ever return back to Sanada if she doesn’t agree to staying with him (and the rest of them) and that’s just :// not cool Kamanosuke, not cool.
