SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 5.4 ~

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 5.4

On a day that was some time after the matter with Kamanosuke-kun.

All the bustle had calmed down and I was eager to try searching for clues about Himemiko-sama.

I thought maybe I could grab some information related to the sacred treasure that I heard about in that one village.

[YUZUKI]: (Well then, I guess I should head out.)

[YUZUKI]: (Yukimura-kun and the others seem to be busy with castle work so I can’t go that far but… I can investigate about the “sacred treasure” in my own way–)

[SAIZOU]: “… Heh, did someone call for me? The miracle that has alighted upon Sanada’s lands…”

[SAIZOU]: “I, Kirigakure Saizou, have arrived.”

[YUZUKI]: “S-Saizou-kun!”

[SAIZOU]: “Oh, good day. Hm? You look as if your heart is beating fast.”

[YUZUKI]: “No, you suddenly appeared so I was surprised… why are you here exactly…?”

[SAIZOU]: “You are going to gather information after this, no? And so I have come to be your escort.”

[SAIZOU]: “If I, this genius ninja, am here then not only is gathering information certain but I shall also protect your life without fail.”

[SAIZOU]: “Now, come let us depart together.”

Saying that, Saizou-kun held out a hand towards me.

But.

[YUZUKI]: “Haha. I’m only going to the town today, so I’ll be okay even without something as exaggerated as having a bodyguard, you know?”

[SAIZOU]: “Mgh, is that so? However, if you are alone then I will also worry–“

As we started to have this casual conversation…

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Ah, you’re here at the right time.”

Kamanosuke-kun suddenly appeared, his shoulders heaving unusually as he caught his breath, and came over to us.

[YUZUKI]: “Huh, Kamanosuke-kun, what’s wrong? You look like you’re in a rush…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I’m tired so… hide me for a bit.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh? W-Wait, Kamanosuke-kun!?”

Kamanosuke-kun went around to my back and made his body small as if to hide.

But…

[YUKIMURA]: “HEY, Kamanosuke! Don’t run away!”

[YUKIMURA]: “My brother told you to help me out for ten days as punishment for what you did before, right?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “No more. Yukimura, you work too much… I haven’t slept at all…”

[YUKIMURA]: “Yeah, yeah, come here! There’s still a lot of things left to do!”

Beside me, who was completely dumbfounded, Saizou-kun sighed as if in deep admiration.

[SAIZOU]: “… Oh dear, Nobuyuki-sama’s commands cannot be called anything but magnificent. Although it’s called a punishment, to be made into helping Yukimura…”

[YUZUKI]: “B-But is it okay? At that rate, wouldn’t their relationship become even worse…?”

[SAIZOU]: “Hah, not at all. In actuality, their relationship has returned to being favorable, has it not?”

[YUZUKI]: “I-Is that how it is…!?”

[SAIZOU]: “Yes. There is no need to worry about those two any longer.”

[SAIZOU]: “Well then, how about we go to the town and collect information.”

[SAIZOU]: “Now then, according to the information you and Yukimura gathered, the special that was gifted from Himemiko-sama–. It appears to be called a sacred treasure, hm.”

[SAIZOU]: “At present, all we know is its name… In any case, first we can only gather information.”

[YUZUKI]: “But how do we gather information… there hasn’t been any progress up to today… hrmm.”

[SAIZOU]: “… Heh, who do you think I am? I am an Iga School ninja, the strongest and most feared man in history, Kirigakure Saizou.”

[SAIZOU]: “Once I become serious, a search for anything is finished in an instant.”

[YUZUKI]: (It’s true when they were fighting the yakuma that Saizou-kun used a lot of different ninja techniques and he was amazing…)

[YUZUKI]: (He also seems very observant of people, so maybe he’s good at asking information from people…)

[SAIZOU]: “Now, you peddler there, have you heard of something called a sacred treasure?”

[PEDDLER]: “Sacred treasure…? Ah, I do have something good.”

[PEDDLER]: “It’s this mirror here. Because it is so very holy there are some who may or may not call it a sacred treasure…”

[SAIZOU]: “Ho… so this is Himemiko-sama’s sacred treasure. Then we will take that.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wait! That’s definitely not it!”

[SAIZOU]: “Mgh, is that so? Hey, do you have anything else related to a sacred treasure?”

[PEDDLER]: “Erm… these aren’t sacred treasures but… ah, how about that over there?”

[PEDDLER]: “This item is called the Pot of Good Fortune and if you adorn your house with this then you should be able to obtain anything you desire.”

[SAIZOU]: “Oh! If we have this then the sacred treasure will come? In that case, I will purchase that pot as it is!”

[YUZUKI]: “W-Wait…! No matter how you look at this, it’s just a pot! Saizou-kun, don’t get tricked!”

[YUZUKI]: (A-Are we going to be okay…?)

 

[YUZUKI]: “Haaa…”

[YUZUKI]: “It’s been several days after that… every day we come to collect information but we haven’t gotten any…”

[SAIZOU]: “However, owing to these trips, I bought something good. Apparently, if I blow this whistle good luck will drop in. If we use this then the sacred treasure–“

[YUZUKI]: “We’re going to return that right now, okay!? You can’t believe in those things, they’re typical scams…!”

[YUZUKI]: (… Is it possible that Saizou-kun is really ignorant about the world…?)

Unconcerned about my uneasiness, he showed a satisfied smile.

[SAIZOU]: “Now then, the sun is setting soon. We should end it here today.”

[SAIZOU]: “Heh, illuminated by the evening sun… am I not picturesque. Do you not think the same?”

[YUZUKI]: (Even though we haven’t progressed at all, he’s the same as usual… Does Saizou-kun not get depressed?)

[YUZUKI]: “Saizou-kun, in one way you’re amazing, huh…”

[SAIZOU]: “Hm? Really?”

[SAIZOU]: “Well, it’s natural for me to be amazing. I’m amazing and stylish. That is why I am Kirigakure Saizou. Hahaha, in the end it seems you have also become a prisoner to me.”

[YUZUKI]: “Ha, haa…”

[SAIZOU]: “Alright, I intended to stop for today but… why don’t we go gather information in the next town.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh? R-Right now?”

[SAIZOU]: “If we hurry we will be able to return home before the sun sets. And I happen to be alone together with you. Let me show you more of my amazing figure.”

[YUZUKI]: “Wha, whaaaa…!?”

[YUZUKI]: (Is it r-really okay? It’s starting to get pretty dark though…)

[SAIZOU]: “… Hm?”

[YUZUKI]: “Saizou-kun, what’s wrong?”

[SAIZOU]: “Stop for the moment. I feel a terrible presence…”

I stopped as he told me and looked around our surroundings. When I did, the shadows of the bushes shook and then slowly yakuma appeared.

[YAKUMA]: “Grrgrrgh…”

[SAIZOU]: “I see, so it was yakuma. One, two, three… there’s quite a few.”

[YUZUKI]: “S-Saizou-kun, let’s run!”

[SAIZOU]: “No, we won’t. I shall defeat the yakuma here.”

[YUZUKI]: “But this many…”

[SAIZOU]: “… Yes. Certainly, there is just a little too many.”

[SAIZOU]: “However, to run from yakuma here is unsightly. If I defeat them while protecting you, I will look even more stylish. And so I shall do the latter!”

[YUZUKI]: “T-That’s your reason…?”

[SAIZOU]: “What, there is no need for concern. In the end they are yakuma. This amount isn’t enough to be my opponent.”

[SAIZOU]: “Your luck has run out to appear in front of me, Kirigakure Saizou. Allow yourselves to be exterminated here!”

[YUZUKI]: “Wow… it’s true I might not need to worry.”

[YAKUMA]: “Grrghh…”

[YUZUKI]: “… Wah!?”

[SAIZOU]: “What!? They were concealed over there as well!”

[YAKUMA]: “GUOOOOORGH!”

The yakuma leapt, aiming for me. In that instant my vision was blocked by Saizou-kun’s back–

[SAIZOU]: “Gugh…!”

[YUZUKI]: “Saizou-kun…!?”

[SAIZOU]: “… I-It’s alright. Step back, or you’ll get caught in this.”

[SAIZOU]: “… It ends with this! Earth Release technique!”

[YUZUKI]: (The yakuma went under the ground…!?)

[SAIZOU]: “It is not a technique to be used against these small fries but there was no other way… kugh!”

[YUZUKI]: “Saizou-kun!? Where does it hurt?”

[SAIZOU]: “… It appears my leg took the attack. I don’t believe I’ll be able to walk for a while with this, hm.”

[YUZUKI]: “N-No way…”

    After with Kamanosuke, it isn’t so hard dealing with Saizou now… Seriously though, how did he just conveniently appear just when she was going to go out alone…
    Nice Kamanosuke サボりですか 😏

    I’m getting so much Yato from Noragami vibes, especially the one with the pot 😂😂😂

    He totally deserved that injury, is what I would say but even if they did run, from past experiences, it’s shown that Yuzuki can’t outrun a yakuma so trying to escape probably wouldn’t have done any good…… in any case, thank god for ninjutsu right

    Thanks for translating!
    (P.S. I thought I wrote a comment earlier but I don’t know what happened to it so I’m just typing another one but if there is a repeat, 本当にごめんなさい!😞)

      Oh gosh, a completely late and out-of-order reply. For some reason, WP decided to hide this from me in the trash instead of the spam folder which is… weird?? LOL. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Kamanosuke kept tabs on the heroine somehow |D and he seems to be the sneaky ninja out of everyone (popping up unexpectedly).

      LOL I still can’t stop laughing at how bad Saizou is with normal things. I’m surprised he still has money to buy things, unless no one actually lets him go shopping unsupervised.

    It makes me laugh that Yuzuki laughs at Saizou.
    It seems that she doesn’t get surprised anymore, she just worry that he would get them in trouble.

    [YUZUKI]: (… Is it possible that Saizou-kun is really ignorant about the world…?)

    On the other hand, she does trust his ninja skills. ^-^

    This was so good ,LOL:

        I know I certainly wasn’t expecting Saizou to be THIS bad at talking to merchants |D;; makes me surprised he hasn’t been scammed out of everything he owns by a pretty girl–. But omg yeah I love that the heroine has these not-so-nice thoughts sometimes about the puppies’ antics.

    Wait what? I didn’t think myself as your prisoner, Saizou =3=

    [SAIZOU]: “If we hurry we will be able to return home before the sun sets. And I happen to be alone together with you. Let me show you more of my amazing figure.”

    No, I don’t want to see it, sorry Saizou

    Out of topic for a while. I think you already know about Hypnosis Mic, but unfortunately I didn’t follow it since I didn’t know one thing about that, I mean I already know that there’ll rap battle or something like that, but will you explain in overall what kind of project is that? (Kinda confused about those since so~ much fanart about those)

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

      He’s just using it metaphorically there as in you’ve become a prisoner to his looks/beauty |D;; like all the other girls in the town.

      Hypnosis Mic is a drama CD and music project (so far). Essentially, the story goes that in the year 20xx there’s a bill that’s passed that bans the creation of any weapons of war and women came into power and took over all governmental positions. They established a central district where no men were allowed and started governing the country. But men couldn’t keep their violent nature under wraps so they came up with rap battles to fight each other and claim territory outside the central district. And then a prototype weapon called Hypnosis Microphone was developed which can target the brain of the opponent (so literally something that makes your words into weapons). I think it was cancelled (or at least the military version) and then it went underground, so those with actual hypnosis mics are rare. Territory battles seem to have become some sort of sport to the women in the central district (since they’re invited into there to do their territory battles).

      Anyway, in the past there was this legendary team called The Dirty Dawgs made up of 4 people. But due to reasons (untold so far in the CDs) they split up and now are battling their own reasons. These 4 split into the 4 divisions that we see: Ikebukuro, Yokohama, Shibuya, and Shinjuku. And then those 4 leaders chose 2 more people to add to their team. Obviously, everyone has their own reasons for joining the team and interesting relationships with each other :D.

      But yeah, that’s pretty much hypnosis mic in a nutshell. Personally, I find it a super cool project especially since it celebrates hiphop and rap (which tends to have a scary image around it).

    [SAIZOU]: “… Heh, who do you think I am? I am an Iga School ninja, the strongest and most feared man in history, Kirigakure Saizou.”

    ….sorry, Saizou, but in my opinion, you’re definitely noooooot the strongest and most feared man in history.
    I still think the Kirigakure Saizou in history (or perhaps more accurately, legend?) is an impressive man.

    Btw, does this mean we’re moving on to Saizou arc…?

      LOL give him a bone and let him live in his delusion! I think so, yep! Kind of funny that Nobuyuki only got one part of a chapter in the storehouse but looks like Saizou is getting two to three |D. Even Kamanosuke got more than Nobuyuki, hmm…
