SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 6.5 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 6: Now, Showdown!

An unknown sender’s letter with information written related to Himemiko…

Holding caution, the party headed towards the specified place seeking a clue, but what awaited them was an unexpected opponent…!?

Chapter 6.5

Having drank my blood, Sasuke-kun and Kamanosuke-kun downed the majority of the enemy in a flash.

[SASUKE]: “Heh heh! They got scared off quickly after they saw our power!”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Over already? Boring…”

.[SAIZOU]: “… However, who exactly were they?”

[YUKIMURA]: “Like we thought, they must have been the force that sent that letter.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “If so, that’s not good. They might have realized that there is a sacred treasure on this mountain.”

[YUKIMURA]: “It’ll be bad if we’re overtaken. Hurry! The summit is right there!”

[YUKIMURA]: “… There’s no sign of people. It doesn’t look like the enemy has come yet.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “But we don’t know when they’ll catch up. We need to retrieve it quickly.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “The sacred treasure… is in this shrine? It seems that there’s light coming out from the gap of this door…”

[SASUKE]: “Really!? Then it has to be inside, right!?”

[YUKIMURA]: “For s-some reason… I’m a bit nervous.”

[SAIZOU]: “Heh. Then why don’t we open this shrine now. Here I go!… Hm?”

[SAIZOU]: “How strange… hah!… Nrghhh!”

[SAIZOU]: “Ugh, gughhh…!”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “What are you playing at, Saizou.”

[SASUKE]: “Yeah. Hurry and open it.”

[SAIZOU]: “H-Hold on a moment. This door… has no sign of opening, you know?”

[SASUKE]: “Hah? It’s a door made out of normal wood though? Switch with me.”

[SASUKE]: “… Nngh?… Nghh! Aghhhh!!”

[SASUKE]: “… Haa… aah… haa… aah… N-No good. It really won’t open!”

[YUKIMURA]: “What in the world…? What’s going on?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Perhaps some sort of special skill was used in order to protect the sacred treasure.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “The Sanada crest is carved into the door… Yukimura, why don’t you try opening it?”

[SASUKE]: “I see! It might be opened only by a legitimate heir, huh!”

[YUKIMURA]: “Aah, okay. I’ll try.”

[YUKIMURA]: “… Kgh, it doesn’t work! It hasn’t moved an inch…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Hey. What should we do about this?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Is there some sort of essential condition or tool to open this?… I haven’t the slightest idea and I’m stumped.”

[YUZUKI]: (I really wonder why it won’t open.)

[YUZUKI]: (I don’t know why though but this door… feels like it can be opened easily.)

[YUZUKI]: “Hey, can you switch with me?”

[YUKIMURA]: “Yeah, sure but… do you know the way to open it?”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m not confident but…”

When I stood in front of the door I touched the depicted Sanada crest as if I was guided by something.

[YUZUKI]: “Huh?”

[YUKIMURA]: “It o-opened?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “What in the…? What did you do?’

[YUZUKI]: “U-Um, I’m not too sure either… I just felt like it’d open with this…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Ah, look inside.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “This is probably… the sacred treasure, right?”

[YUKIMURA]: “It’s a… hairpin?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… It’s kinda normal. We fought with our lives for this?”

[SASUKE]: “Hrmm. True, no matter where you look at it from it’s a normal hairpin, huh.”

[SAIZOU]: “But there is no mistake that this is something gifted from Himemiko-sama, right?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Yes, that’s right. I don’t know what power may be concealed in this but it’s an important item that connects us and Himemiko-sama.”

[YUKIMURA]: “… A hairpin, huh. It’s something a woman uses…”

[YUKIMURA]: “How about you try putting it on? I think it’d suit you. Here.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh? N-No way… if you hand such an important thing to– huh?”

[SASUKE]: “Uwah… what is this!? The hairpin… is shining!?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “The light is stretching far off into the distance…!”

[SAIZOU]: “This ray of light… is it pointing to something?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “It could be… where Himemiko-sama is.”

[YUKIMURA]: “It’s more than possible enough.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “But that direction is…”

[EVERYONE]: “……”

[YUZUKI]: “W-What’s wrong? What’s over there exactly?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Beyond there– is not Sanada territory. Every power is in conflict and it’s a whirlpool of war… the lands of the warring states.”

[YUZUKI]: “!”

[SASUKE]: “Meaning, the war can’t be avoided, huh.”

[SAIZOU]: “However, we have no choice but to go.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Well, it’s unavoidable.”

[YUKIMURA]: “–Everyone, let’s go. To where the light points!”

    It’s amazing how hard they tried to open it but it wouldn’t even budge but a touch from her and it swings open…

    [YUKIMURA]: “… A hairpin, huh. It’s something a woman uses…”
    [YUKIMURA]: “How about you try putting it on? I think it’d suit you. Here.”
    Nice Yukimura :D Can I just say how, well shoujo, with the light showing in Sanada compared to other armies… I don’t know about Takeda since I haven’t gotten there but… in Oda, she was attempting to fight with it, in Toyotomi, Hideyoshi pulls it out after hiding it the whole time, in Uesugi, goes to Takeda territory to get it and then gets kidnapped…, in Date, goes to Sanada lands to get it and Masamune’s schemes… So yeah, in Sanada, Yukimura just casually puts it in her hair… I’m not saying anything bad about them, I like all of them (personally really likes Toyotomi and Date…), just that, everything’s really calm in Sanada (overlooking Masamune’s attack and the yakuma defense part)
    Thanks for the translation Miss Iri!

      Rereading this, I just realized I put nothing about Mouri Army (GOMENNN!!!)… I haven’t read anything about them in their main story so… yeah, zero knowledge…

        She pressed the Sanada crest to open the doors so I actually wonder if it would have opened for others too so long as they pressed that. I mean, she was guided to it so potentially no one could have figured it out but it’s also ambiguous as to whether it was restricted to her or not (compared to the barrier in Uesugi and Date’s story).

        Ehehe, Takeda’s is pretty dramatic too. But yeah I like how different things are! Mouri doesn’t get a light showing because I don’t think they even have a sacred treasure (but my memory could be wrong on this).

    [NOBUYUKI]: “Beyond there– is not Sanada territory. Every power is in conflict and it’s a whirlpool of war… the lands of the warring states.”

    “The lands of the warring states” sounds poetic but… do you mean the lands of Oda and Toyotomi?
    Nobuyuki talks as if they are not part of the warring states…

    By the way, has it ever been mentioned how many sacred treasures there are? I’m getting the feeling these treasures start to mirror the imperial regalia of Japan…

      Nobuyuki specifically says “戦国の地” so he’s just talking about them in general and I believe he means literally every other army apart from Sanada, so including Takeda and Uesugi and stuff like that. Like you mention though, I always find this part funny because it sounds like he’s implying that Sanada doesn’t also have the ambition to unite the country to bring peace |D;;

      No one’s given an actual number but so far there’s been 6 since there’s one in each army. IIRC Mouri’s didn’t count as a sacred treasure but they do get something (a gigantic stone tablet LOL).

    Wait a sec, let me remember about every item…
    Oda : knife/dagger
    Toyotomi : … Forgot
    Uesugi : necklace
    Takeda : crystal ball, cmiiw
    Date : tachi
    Sanada : hairpin

    … Waw, that’s truly… Much. But I didn’t expect that they will get hairpin ^^’a

    Thank you for your hard works, ili~!!

      Oda is a tantou, pretty much a short knife or dagger.
      Toyotomi is a mirror.
      Uesugi is a magatama that got turned into a necklace.
      Takeda actually has the real necklace LOL.
      Date is a tachi, like you said, pretty much an actual sword.
      Sanada is the hairpin as we see here.

      Mouri has… a stone tablet in the middle of the forest LOL. It’s not really a sacred treasure though and instead gives off some history or something.

    It’s like a girl beats boys lol jk 😂
    But I hope to see a heroine beats boys especially those tsunderes and…… What kind of dere or what type is Mr. Aries (Takakage)

      Ilinox responded:
      September 11, 2018 at 11:47

      I wonder if they could have opened it too if they just hit the crest |D;; or if it was actually sealed by Himemiko powers and so only the heroine could open it (like the invisible barrier in Date and Uesugi). LOL I don’t think Takakage has any dere. He’s just straight up mildly cruel hfghkjhkjh.

      When is Date not lurking in everybody’s route– hahaha.

        Iirc… Mouri wasn’t meet everyone, including Date. Just themselves and MC
