SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 8.2 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 8: Beliefs, Sticking to Obligation and Chivalry!

The Sanada army moved their army forward seeking clues to Himemiko.

Yukimura and the others wished to avoid pointless battles but in front of them the Takeda Army fell into a predicament…!

Chapter 8.2

[YUKIMURA]: “At least… please overlook everyone but me…!”

A snapping tension dominated the area and an air flowed where it wouldn’t be strange if a battle were to break out.


[SHINGEN]: “Ha ha ha! That part really hasn’t changed.”

[SHINGEN]: “You guys, put away your weapons. These guys aren’t enemies.”

Shingen-san ordered his soldiers and then also lowered his sword easily.

[YUKIMURA]: “You believe me…?”

[SHINGEN]: “You wouldn’t pick a fight with me and expose your soldiers to danger, right?”

[YUKIMURA]: “… Shingen-sama!”

Shingen-san smiled at Yukimura-kun whose face brightened.

[SHINGEN]: “… Well?”

Saying that, Shingen-san’s gaze suddenly stopped on me.

[SHINGEN]: “Who is that girl? It doesn’t feel like she’s for battle?”

[YUKIMURA]: “She’s…”

Yukimura-kun thought a little–.

[YUKIMURA]: “Our precious… companion.”

He said that decisively.

Nobuyuki-san and Sasuke-kun and the others also nodded as if saying he was right.

[SHINGEN]: “Haha. Seems like she’s really special from those serious eyes you all have.”

And then he looked at Yukimura-kun with kind eyes.

[SHINGEN]: “Then… be sure to protect her.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Yes, of course…!”

Yukimura-kun accepted Shingen-san’s gaze and also nodded deeply.

[SHINGEN]: “Also, stop talking to me politely. You can also drop the honorific.”

[SHINGEN]: “You’re already a general of a fine army so stop being modest like a vassal.”

[YUKIMURA]: “…! But to be like that to you, Shingen-sama–“

[SHINGEN]: “Hey now, I’m not saying this just for you. It’s also for them.”

[YUKIMURA]: “…!”

[SHINGEN]: “Using honorifics for me is like admitting you’re lesser.”

[SHINGEN]: “Do you think vassals want to follow such an unreliable general?”

Yukimura-kun had an expression of sudden realization.

[SHINGEN]: “Didn’t you “want to protect everyone”?”

[YUKIMURA]: “… You’re right. I want to protect everyone, so–“

[YUKIMURA]: “Shingen, from now on, we’ll face each other equally as generals!”

[SHINGEN]: “Ou, that’s the spirit.”

[SHINGEN]: “… Nobuyuki, you’re the same too, alright. Don’t deprecate yourself.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “I understand… I’ll also be like Yukimura.”

Shingen-san nodded as if he was saying good. And then as he tried to walk away, he suddenly turned back.

[SHINGEN]: “… Ah, that’s right. If you’re making camp then come to our place. We have lots of sake and food so don’t hold back.”

Shingen-san said that and then left quickly.

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Can you come here?”

When everyone went to send off Shingen-san, I was called by Nobuyuki-san.

[NOBUYUKI]: “That man… Shingen-san isn’t a man to make light of. It’s best you don’t get close.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh, why?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “The Takeda army doesn’t seem like it wants to fight us right now, but–“

[NOBUYUKI]: “If they knew about your power… they might come to steal it.”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah…”

[YUKIMURA]: “That’s right. If the Takeda army were to try and steal you… it’s frustrating but right now we can’t oppose them.”

[YUKIMURA]: “So, we should avoid risks that’ll make your power be known.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Yes. For that I’d like you not to leave our side.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh? You mean…”

[YUZUKI]: (He can’t mean that we’ll constantly be together…!?)

[YUKIMURA]: “… Night then.”

[YUZUKI]: “Mm… good night.”

[YUZUKI]: (… To think I really ended up having to sleep right beside Yukimura-kun…)

Unable to calm down, I closed my eyes and tried to sleep somehow.

But I greeted the morning, my heart still racing next to Yukimura-kun.

[YUZUKI]: (I b-barely slept…)

When I opened my eyes, feeling a lack of sleep, I made eye contact with Yukimura-kun who already started dressing.

[YUKIMURA]: “… Ah, you’re up? Morning.”

[YUZUKI]: “M… morning.”

Even though I got up I was conscious of my pounding heart and looked around the area with awkward movements.

[YUKIMURA]: “It looks like the Takeda army has started preparing to march already.”

[YUZUKI]: “Oh, then should we set out soon too? I’ll prepare quickly–“

[YUKIMURA]: “No. Before that there’s something that needs to be done.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…?”

Yukimura-kun said that with a serious face and, pulling my hand, took me deep into the forest.

    Just another route which once again proves that while I don’t necessarily ship him with the heroine as much as I ship her with Hideyoshi and Masamune, Shingen is best boy lmao. Also I found this very interesting? As it provides a neat contrast with Uesugi and Date who’s constantly trying to one-up one another (although more on Date’s side) and Hideyoshi and Nobunaga’s cold war-esque relationship lmfao.

    ALSO DAMN MY BIAS FOR PURE BOY-NEXT-DOOR TYPES LIKE YUKIMURA AND YAMASHITA DAIKI’S VOICE. Hearing Yukimura say good morning to me as soon as I wake up is like a dream.

      Shingen is too nice and has that looming tragedy that stops him from being my number one (and I’m just so weak to ruthless men in general) but I’m so with you on him being best boy :’)). And you’re right in that his relationship with Yukimura is such a nice change of pace compared to the rest, haha. “Hideyoshi and Nobunaga’s cold war-esque relationship” cracked me up LOL.

      I didn’t think much of his voice as I was playing this the first time but I gotta say it’s growing on me. I love the small changes in tone he has, especially when you hear him actually get angry or serious AH. It contrasts and highlights just how doting his tone is to the heroine it’s so cute :’D. (This contrast is also why I love it so much when they talk to other commanders because LOL wow the difference in how Kenshin speaks to Shingen vs. how he speaks to the heroine).

    The interaction between Shingen and Yukimura is so pure…. Despite becoming an individual, Shingen respected it and still gives advices to Yukimura to better himself yet in the same time looks at him as an equal. I just heard that the new senbura cd was released. Will you be translating Mouri’s character song as well?

      Ilinox responded:

      YES! This so much! I love that Shingen knows Yukimura so well and encourages him to do his own thing, even if that led to him breaking away from the Takeda army. Oh, I totally forgot about that. Expenses have been rough this month though, so it’ll just depend on whenever I get around to picking up the song.

    DADDY SHINGEN….!!! HUG YOU!!!!! (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ💖💖💖

    [NOBUYUKI]: “That man… Shingen-san isn’t a man to make light of. It’s best you don’t get close.” I agree to boss, he will take it as a opportunity if he knew she was an energy drink but hmm….. Even if he knew, I guess he don’t mind? Because he’s more focus on being mano on mano with Kenshin or he believes in his own strength ( his other definition of being a man).

    Oh, 2nd leader who sleep beside heroine hehehe :3c

      Dun dun dun, I love how we’re all side-eyeing Shingen and wanting to believe in his chivalry but also being like “But… she’s an ace in the hole…”. Which side will win out with Shingen!? Find out next time– haha.

      My gut reaction is always to be like “Hmmm” at heroines who are so embarrassed just by sleeping beside a dude but tbh I’d probably be the same LOL. But then again you’re camping out in the middle of nowhere in an army so it’s not like you’re alone and you should just treat it as a massive sleepover…? |D

    Out of topic for a while. Just opened the Uesugi and Takeda’s newest stories, and I found that Masanobu was talking that MC shouldn’t go near to Uesugi, especially Kagemochi. Well, my two belo- ehem, favorite charas are enemies after all *sobs*

    Back to topic. Somehow I agreed that Yukimura have big respect to Shingen, and I almost want Yukimura to said “Oyakatta-sama” to Shingen like Yukimura in Sengoku Basara XD

    Thank you for your hard works~!!

      Mochi is the most dangerous wolf in Uesugi so you never know when will he attack her :3c ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) jk but indeed he’s dangerous.

      Ilinox responded:
      September 20, 2018 at 17:23

      LOL Kagemochi doesn’t even try to hide how shady he is to every outsider not in Uesugi, so I’m not surprised there’s warnings all around for him and everyone’s wary about him.

    [SHINGEN]: “You wouldn’t pick a fight with me and expose your soldiers to danger, right?”
    [YUKIMURA]: “… Shingen-sama!”

    I half want him to yell “Oyakata-sama!” instead. |D
    No matter which versions of the story, even in this one where Sanada is separated from Takeda, Yukimura will always have great respect for Shingen, huh.

    [YUKIMURA]: “No. Before that there’s something that needs to be done.”
    [YUZUKI]: “Huh…?”
    Yukimura-kun said that with a serious face and, pulling my hand, took me deep into the forest.

    Oh? I wonder what they will do…? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    Look at me, getting desperate for something “spicy” because I’m getting bored of all the shoujo manga scenes… XD

      It’s so cute to see how much Yukimura looks up to Shingen and how Shingen doesn’t disappoint him, while also being super cool. This chapter is just highlighting how amazing Shingen is tbh LOL and makes me want to go back to Takeda– oops.

      Wait until you see the first few lines in the next chapter ;D I couldn’t stop giggling although they explain it really fast but it’s vague on purpose!! I didn’t make it more lewd than how it actually was, I swear. I’m afraid Sanada is pure through and through though LOL.

        Now, I really want to see Yukimura calls Shingen “Dad”.
        They look more like father and son to me than Kenshin and Kagekatsu. |D

    [NOBUYUKI]: “If they knew about your power… they might come to steal it.”

    i really wonder about that. shingen has his principles. if oda, toyotomi and date, i believe they really would kidnap yuzuki.

      It’s hard to say because Shingen also doesn’t have any connection to this heroine and when you involve a power that can potentially control all of Shinga… I think it’d be tempting |D;; all the other leaders tend to be a bit ruthless to the heroine when she’s not in their army.
