SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 5.3 ~

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 5.3

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

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Eh? This voice…”

[SAIZOU]: “That is a bad habit of yours, you know.”

[YUZUKI]: “S-Saizou-san!”

.[SAIZOU]: “I helped myself to your conversation from just a while ago.”

[SAIZOU]: “Kamanosuke, if you have those thoughts, should you not tell everyone properly?”


[SAIZOU]: “… Even I have similar feelings as you. In truth, I do not wish for this girl to return home. It would be sad if we were to never meet again, after all.”

[SAIZOU]: “I’m certain Yukimura and the others feel the same as well.”

[SAIZOU]: “However, this method of dragging her around by force without discussing it with her… I cannot say it is very beautiful.”


[SAIZOU]: “Good gracious… don’t sulk, we’re returning home to the castle. And then you will convey your thoughts properly to Yukimura and the others.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… It’s not like I’m sulking.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “In the first place, Yukimura’s at fault for breaking his promise.”

[SAIZOU]: “Promise, you say…”

Murmuring that, Saizou-san looked directly at Kamanosuke-san with a serious expression.

[SAIZOU]: “Wishing to live happily with comrades. –He promised that he would make that possible, didn’t he. You say Yukimura broke the promise, but…”

[SAIZOU]: “Yukimura hasn’t broken his promise with us. He is only acting as he always does.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Really…?”

[SAIZOU]: “Yukimura treasures his friends over anyone else. And he’s a man who can’t overlook someone who is in trouble.”

[SAIZOU]: “Right now, a precious friend, is troubled over “wanting to return to her original world”… In that case, it is Yukimura who will come to their assistance.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… Why? Yukimura doesn’t think “I want her to go home” about this girl, right? So we should all just live together…”

[SAIZOU]: “Yukimura cannot do such a thing, because he prioritizes the other person’s wishes over his own feelings.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Prioritizes the other person…?”

[SAIZOU]: “It might be a feeling you don’t understand, Kamanosuke.”

[SAIZOU]: “For the sake of helping others, he’ll rush forward and even sacrifice himself… and, even to the extent of suppressing his own feelings about wanting to be together, he’ll grant the other person’s wishes… Yukimura is that sort of man.”

[SAIZOU]: “I like that Yukimura and that is why I obey him. Kamanosuke, you too, no?”

Kamanosuke-san looked down as if in thought at Saizou-san’s words. And then, after a brief period, Kamanosuke-san raised his face.

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… Mm, yeah. When I see Yukimura doing his best for other people, I…”

[SAIZOU]: “Well, I do feel there are times that man sacrifices himself too much… that is why we have to support him.”

[SAIZOU]: “Therefore, Kamanosuke, let’s return home together to Yukimura.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “But… will he forgive me for doing something this selfish?”

[SAIZOU]: “Have no fear. It’s Yukimura, he’ll forgive you if you apologize. I personally guarantee this.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… Fine. Let’s go home then.”

[YUZUKI]: (I’m glad…)

[YUZUKI]: “Excuse me… Saizou-san, thank you very much.”

[SAIZOU]: “Heh, I haven’t done a thing that needs you to thank me. I am used to bringing back Kamanosuke when he strays off the path.”

[SAIZOU]: “Good gracious… he’s a comrade that always takes up so much time.”

[YUZUKI]: (… Haha.)

[YUZUKI]: (I thought Saizou-san had no interest in anything but himself, but he watches Yukimura and the others around him carefully. It’s a bit surprising.)


[KAMANOSUKE]: “… I’m sorry for all that just now. I forced you to be involved…”

[YUZUKI]: “It’s okay. It’s because you love Yukimura-san and everyone in the Sanada army that you couldn’t lie about your own feelings, right?”

[YUZUKI]: “I also understand those feelings, so…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I see… thanks.”

[YUZUKI]: (… Kamanosuke-san doesn’t really show it in his attitude but he loves everyone and he’s a good boy, huh.)

[YUZUKI]: (We never really talk together, so I’m glad I got to hear Kamanosuke-san’s feelings today.)

[SAIZOU]: “Now, let us return home to the castle. Kamanosuke, you should think about your apology.”

When we returned to the castle, Yukimura-san and Sasuke-san were waiting for our return at the castle gates.

I wondered if they were mad but their expressions were much calmer than I would have thought…

[YUKIMURA]: “Kamanosuke… when I heard that you disappeared suddenly I was worried, you know?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… I misunderstood you, Yukimura.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Yukimura, it’s because you think of this girl as a friend that her wishes are put above everything else and you’re trying to return her to her old world, right?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I thought you broke our promise, Yukimura… but that wasn’t the case. I realized it after being convinced by Saizou.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Yukimura, and everyone else… I’m really sorry for making you worry.”

[SAIZOU]: “… And that is how it is. Kamanosuke did not do this out of malice, so why don’t we overlook it.”

[SASUKE]: “Eh, that’s fine with me! He also finally came back like this!”

[YUKIMURA]: “Well, no matter what the reason was, he made everyone in the castle worry, so I think he needs to receive some light punishment…”

[YUKIMURA]: “But I also understand Kamanosuke’s feelings and if I had told everyone my thoughts then this wouldn’t have happened. So, I’m the one who is sorry.”

[YUKIMURA]: “… Hm? You have a really big smile. Was there something that was funny?”

[YUZUKI]: “No, I was just thinking that everyone really is a good person. And I’m glad, from the bottom of my heart, that I was found by you all.”

[YUKIMURA]: “I’m happy to hear you say that.”

[SASUKE]: “… Ah! By the way! Isn’t it about time to stop being so polite and ceremonious?”

[YUZUKI]: “… Huh. Aah, now that you mention it…”

[SASUKE]: “In that case, speaking politely is stuffy so just talk normally, casual-like.”

[SASUKE]: “Ehh… well, I won’t ask you to force yourself. Then just do it whenever you feel like it! By the way, any time is okay with us!”

[SAIZOU]: “I won’t allow you to relax with only Sasuke though.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Me too, I’d be happy if you weren’t polite with me…”

[YUKIMURA]: “You three! Don’t press her all at once like that!”

[YUZUKI]: “… Haha, alright. I’ll talk to everyone the same in the future then.”

[SASUKE]: “Really!? Yaaaay! I feel like we’ll get even closer with this!”

[YUKIMURA]: “Then, once more, though it’s late now… It’s a pleasure to have you!”

I took Yukimura-san’s offered hand with a smile and squeezed back as he said that.

[YUZUKI]: “… Mm! It’s a pleasure to be here!”

    You really need to appreciate Saizou right here. I would be a bit surprising with how Saizou is actually the maturest out of all three of them but I guess I should’ve seen it coming with how only Nobuyuki and Saizou were able to tell Kamanosuke’s feelings. In all cases, I’m glad to see the character development with Kamanosuke and Saizou! Never really hated Saizou, he was just a little hard to deal with with all the compliments…

    Can I just point out, I love how this chapter constantly refers back to past chapters like that!
    Thanks for the translation!

      Saizou is such an interesting character because he shows his hidden depths like this, but then at the same time he’s actually 1000% serious when he goes on his narcissistic rants LOL and when you later see how he reacts to shopping for things at the market… :’)) how did he survive and not lose all his money (and Sanada’s money).

      It’s always great whenever the story refers back to things that have happened n_n!

    Saizou has evolved into Saizo-oniichan!!

    seriously I was a bit surprised by the little mention that he’s usually the one who collects the wandering Kamanosuke. it gives quite a depth in his background. I always expect either Kamanosuke or Sasuke to be the most level headed of the three of them.

      Ilinox responded:

      I liked the additional implication that he’s also the one who corrects Kamanosuke’s bad behaviours, but I guess that’s because Sasuke and Yukimura are too dense and Nobuyuki has the special position of being like the strict mom that only intervenes when it’s serious (or to scold them). In terms of mental age, I’d probably rank it like Kamanosuke > Sasuke > Saizou with Kamanosuke being the youngest, haha.

    Thanks to him, the conflict was solve. Haaa….. If only Saizo is like this, I wouldn’t be annoyed….. (-.- )

    Out of topic, early in 3:00 am I wake up to finish my mountain of drawings that needs to be done but before that I need to collect crystals for the Kenshin gacha. I was surprised when Mitsuhide say this お誕生日だそうですね。おめでとうございます。あなたにとって、良い日となりますように。 did Mitsuhide just greet me happy birthday O.O

      When first time play the game, you must input your birthday date, so in that day, everyone in the game will say you happy birthday ^^
      (Just like in Granblue Fantasy/GBF, but it was optional)

      And, happy birthday for you~

        Saizou needs to keep his serious switch permanently turned on |D;; I think it’s around this time that everyone starts to calm down though and Sanada gets more serious instead, so we’ll see less shenanigans… maybe.

        Yep, like what leohikarusora said. They’ve noticed it’s your birthday. Mitsuhide’s exact words are “It seems to be your birthday, isn’t it. Happy Birthday. I hope the day turns out to be well for you.”

        Reggie said:

        Oh I see, but some games didn’t mentioning your birthday even you input your birthdate and this is my 2nd time playing senbura because I accidentally deleted my first data so got frustrated and stop but I play again around September or October so that’s why I’m innocent hehehe 😅 and thank you for the greetings Leohikarusora 😉

        Oh Mitsuhide 💖💖💖
        I didn’t check the others…. 😱😱😱
        Are you going to translate their greetings when it’s your birthday Ili? 😮

        I already got all the general, the second-in-command, tsundere group (lol), Masatoyo, Taka… the one who voiced by Hirakawa Daisuke, and Ranmaru. The rest… Didn’t get it, and Nobuyuki have different words, he says “生まれてきてくれて、俺の出会ってくれて、あえいがとう” that means “Thank you for being born and meeting me”. And about Nobunaga, I don’t like it at all since… You should check it for yourself next year~

        PS : for second-in-command guys, Nobuyuki was the shortest one, second was Kojuurou, the rest truly a long one, phew

        leohikarusora said:
        September 4, 2018 at 07:12

        Akh, I mean the last part “… あえいがとう”, it should like this “… あろがとう”

        I’m sorry for typo (_ _;)

        @Reggie: Nah, I don’t have any plans to translate their messages ww since I haven’t bothered touching any of their daily messages either that they say at different times.

    Wow! I would have never thought Saizou was the voice of reason. I liked how he expressed his thoughts and his feelings. He only said ‘beautiful’ once, and in this case, I think is well applied.

    [SAIZOU]: “However, this method of dragging her around by force without discussing it with her… I cannot say it is very beautiful.”

    My respect for him has increased a lot.

      Haha, I think we’re all like the MC here in being surprised at how clearly he saw everything and yeah!! His maturity in explaining things to Kamanosuke and handling the whole situation is impressive. Makes you really appreciate how Sanada DOES have a strong team |D;; and their ninjas are powerful, despite appearances…

    Had a feeling Saizou has hidden depths, if only he’s serious like this more often. (^-^”)
    But then Saizou won’t be Saizou… *sigh*

      Ilinox responded:
      August 28, 2018 at 13:17

      My thoughts exactly LOL if he was more like this and less like how he usually is then I wouldn’t mind him at all |D.

    im also a little bit surprise to saizou. thank you for saving me trouble explaining things to kamanosuke. i thought ??? was nobuyuki.

    [SAIZOU]: “… Even I have similar feelings as you. In truth, I do not wish for this girl to return home. It would be sad if we were to never meet again, after all.”

    i would feel bad if someone said these lines from other armies. i think this is the only clan in which they convey the emotional conflict of letting me go.

      Nobuyuki already got his scene in the library ;D it’s time for the other guys to get their spotlight– haha. I think there was some of it in Toyotomi and Takeda too but it’s true that the guys there are more mature and they’re able to hide their reluctance to support the MC.

      leohikarusora said:
      August 28, 2018 at 21:34

      Fyi, if you want to get another Nobuyuki CG beside in library and awakened, you should open Book(?) 2 Ch 1.3

      About story… I don’t really understand it since when I opened, kinda tired after works…
