SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 5.5 ~

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 5.5

I managed to return back to the castle somehow together with Saizou-kun who was wounded in the leg. The next day…

[SASUKE]: “Hey hey, Saizou, I heard you were hurt… Are you really OK?”

[SAIZOU]: “Heh, this level of injury is of absolutely no impediment to a genius ninja such as–… ugh!?”

[SASUKE]: “Hey hey, don’t push it. It’s better to rest a few days, right?”

.[KAMANOSUKE]: “But what do we do? Today the three of us were going to a distant village to collect information, right?”

[SAIZOU]: “That won’t be a problem. We can set out as planned.”

[SASUKE]: “W-What’re you saying! That’s obviously impossible!”

[SASUKE]: “I’ve gotten permission from Nobuyuki-sama, so you just rest. Kamanosuke and I will do the information gathering.”

[SAIZOU]: “No, but…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “With that leg it’ll be night by the time we reach the village. Honestly, you’ll be a burden…”

[SASUKE]: “Wha, Kamanosuke!? There’s a better way of saying that, right!?”

[SAIZOU]: “Hm, I see… Certainly, I wouldn’t be impressive like that.”

[SASUKE]: “No, Saizou, are you just going to accept that! Well, it helps if you do though…”

[SAIZOU]: “It’s not beautiful to become a burden. It is inevitable then. I will stay here obediently and devote myself to healing.”

[SASUKE]: “Yeah, do that.”

[YUZUKI]: (… Saizou-kun, looks like he wants to go though… Is he really okay being left behind?)

[YUZUKI]: (But with that leg…)

[SAIZOU]: “Heh, are you that concerned about my injury?”

[SAIZOU]: “It must be painful to see the injured form of something beloved. I understand your emotions but please endure them.”

[YUZUKI]: (Erm… he’s right about me being worried though…)

[SASUKE]: “Geez… even being injured Saizou’s still the same as always…”

[SASUKE]: “Well then, we should get going soon. And you have to be Nobuyuki-sama’s helper too, right?”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah… that’s right. Saizou-kun, I’ll be going now. Kamanosuke-kun, Sasuke-kun, don’t push yourselves too hard.”

[SASUKE]: “Yeah! Then see ya later!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “I apologize. It’s taken more time than I thought.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “I only intended to organize a little bit, but to think there was that many…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “I’ll do the rest so you can take a break. You must be hungry, right? Dinner should be finished by now.”

[YUZUKI]: “No, I’m okay still. Is there anything else I can help with?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “I see… thank you. I’m grateful for your kindness.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Then… let’s see, why don’t you bring dinner to Saizou. It must be difficult for him to leave his room with that leg.”

[YUZUKI]: “Saizou-kun?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “On the way you should also settle your own meal.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay, I understand.”

[YUZUKI]: (I feel a bit apologetic towards Nobuyuki-san, but this is perfect since I wanted to look at Saizou-kun’s injury…)

[YUZUKI]: “Saizou-kun. I’ve brought dinner.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Huh, Saizou-kun? H-He’s not here…? He shouldn’t be able to walk yet, where did he…”

[YUZUKI]: “Could it be that he’s somewhere unable to move…”

[YUZUKI]: “I need to l-look for him!”

[YUZUKI]: “Saizou-kun… where are you?”

[???]: “Sei! Hyaah!”

[YUZUKI]: “This voice… Saizou-kun!?”

[SAIZOU]: “Haa, haa… I can still keep going! Sei!”

[SAIZOU]: “–Uguh!?”

[YUZUKI]: “S-Saizou-kun!? What are you doing!?”

[SAIZOU]: “Aah, it’s you… do not be concerned, I’m simply training.”

[YUZUKI]: “Training, you say…! You’re not supposed to move with that injury. How about returning to your room to rest?”

[SAIZOU]: “I’m sorry, but I won’t listen to that. I need to be stronger. To the point where this injury… gugh!”

[YUZUKI]: “Saizou-kun… why are you going this far…”

[SAIZOU]: “… Although this is because I was negligent, I cannot forgive myself for being injured. This sight of me is not impressive!”

[SAIZOU]: “I wished to go gather information with Sasuke and Kamanosuke today as well… To do something such as abandon a mission I had accepted is not a beautiful act.”

[SAIZOU]: “To become unable to do my duty just from injuring my leg… It vexes me so much!”

[SAIZOU]: “But everything is because of my inexperience. Heh… I reap what I sow.”

[SAIZOU]: “I will become even more impressive and beautiful. For that, I cannot bear to lose to this injury.”

[YUZUKI]: “Saizou-kun…”

[SAIZOU]: “I understand that this is a selfish wish. I can’t say anything to Kamanosuke…”

[SAIZOU]: “But I am also obstinate on some things. I’m sorry, but please leave me alone.”

[SAIZOU]: “Hagh, draah– uguh!?”

[YUZUKI]: “S-Saizou-kun! If you push yourself too hard, it’ll worsen even more…!”

[SAIZOU]: “But…”

Saizou-kun’s words became stuck. It seemed that even he knew he was mistaken.

Nevertheless, there was a thought he would not concede on. I felt that and…

[YUZUKI]: “In that case… drink my blood.”

[SAIZOU]: “… Wha!? What are you saying!?”

[YUZUKI]: “If you drink my blood then that injury might heal too, right?”

[SAIZOU]: “That is… true, but…”

[SAIZOU]: “… A-Are you certain?”

[YUZUKI]: “Mhm… you got that injury for protecting me. And, above all, I want to be a source of strength for you, Saizou-kun.”

[SAIZOU]: “Hah… you have a will that is stronger than any girl I’ve seen till now… and a passion.”

[SAIZOU]: “I understand. If you insist then I have no choice.”

[SAIZOU]: “–I, Kirigakure Saizou, will accept your feelings gratefully.”

[SAIZOU]: “Then… if it hurts, please say so immediately, alright?”

[YUZUKI]: “M… mm. Okay…”

He said that and got onto one knee in that spot before he took my hand as if it were something precious.

His lips gently touched my wrist–

[SAIZOU]: “–… Aah, what is this luscious flavor.”

[SAIZOU]: “Your warmth is flowing inside of me… ngh…”

[SAIZOU]: “… And so that was how it went; I drank her blood and my injury made a safe recovery.”

[SAIZOU]: “I apologize… I know her blood is not to be relied upon lightly, but…”

[YUZUKI]: “I asked him to drink my blood so Saizou-kun did nothing wrong.”

[SAIZOU]: “No, it is not beautiful to excuse oneself. I must apologize properly to Yukimura and Nobuyuki as well…”

[SAIZOU]: “In any case, I have caused trouble. Please be at ease, henceforth I will be working as usual.”

[SASUKE]: “Ehhh, are you serious! That’s not fair!”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I want to drink blood too…”

[SAIZOU]: “… Heh, too bad. She wished for her blood to be drank by me. She would also hate for you two to do it.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh? No, that’s not…”

[SASUKE]: “What’d you say!?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I don’t understand what you mean…”

[SASUKE]: “Nah… but I’m glad you’re healthy. We can do our missions together again with this.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “There’s a lot to do today as well, so don’t get hurt with a stupid reason again.”

[SAIZOU]: “… Yes, of course–“

Suddenly, two sets of footsteps came crashing in. The ones who appeared were–

[YUKIMURA]: “Haa… haa… so this is where everyone was!”

[YUZUKI]: (The two look extremely flustered. I wonder what exactly happened?)

[NOBUYUKI]: “Good… you all haven’t departed yet.”

[SASUKE]: “Nobuyuki-sama, you’re out of breath, did something happen?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Everyone, it’s an emergency. Listen well.”

Nobuyuki-san said this and, after leaving a small pause, he opened his mouth gravely.

[NOBUYUKI]: “Just now… a letter from an unknown sender reached us.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “It’s contents– is related to Himemiko-sama.”

    I’m guessing here, is Masamune going to be related……

    Saizou really takes his work seriously…… wish I could have some of that work ethic on things I don’t like to do…… Eh, MORE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT FOR SAIZOU!!!

    The three pups, are still fighting over her blood…… I’m not taking offense in that so I’m assuming that’s how they’ll show their feeling in one way or another…… Kamanosuke was pretty possessive too…

    So is this where the yakuma tower defense starts to end?
    Thanks for translating Miss Iri!

      Saizou getting spoiled with character development here |D it felt more like a Saizou chapter than Kamanosuke– haha jk jk. Sanada shares a lot of their character development chapters on everyone (probably to further emphasize their family theme).

      Yep, we’re finally moving into the world stage! This is where things get exciting imo |D.

    So, things are starting to get complicated. Good!

    [SAIZOU]: “Heh, are you that concerned about my injury?”
    [SAIZOU]: “It must be painful to see the injured form of something beloved. I understand your emotions but please endure them.”

    Saizou, I liked you better in the previous chapter… LOL.

      I think we’re finally out of the yakuma tower defense arc in Sanada’s story LOL and finally getting onto the Himemiko and world stage stuff. LOL we were all so surprised when Saizou showed how cool he could be and now it’s just being instantly disillusioned again.

    Hmm, so he’s gonna doing that, Masamune. Pls stop doing that, One-Eyed Dragon (or should I say One-Eyed Werewolf?) (。ŏ﹏ŏ)

    [NOBUYUKI]: “It’s contents– is related to Himemiko-sama.”

    huh? who would send a letter? imari kun? i doubt other armies will share himemiko’s whereabout not unless they are setting a trap?

      Three guesses as to who might have set this trap, if it is a trap, and the first two don’t count ;D.
