SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 8.5 ~

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 8.5

[SHINGEN]: “I don’t need your help any more. Go back home right now.”

[YUKIMURA]: “!!… why…”

Yukimura-kun and the others were struck dumb by those words.

[SHINGEN]: “That’s because there’s no point to joining with guys that can’t secure a path of retreat and took an ambush directly.”

[YUKIMURA]: “… Ah!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “… We cannot deny that we lack power when compared to the Takeda army. However–“

[SHINGEN]: “To be blunt, right now you guys are a burden.”

Shingen-san suspiciously looked at me.

[SHINGEN]: “… Don’t follow me anymore.”

Shingen-san said only that and turned his back to Yukimura-kun and left.

 

[YUKIMURA]: “……”

Having been driven away by Shingen-san, we walked in silence.

[SASUKE]: “… Isn’t this OK? Not joining with the Takeda army!”

Sasuke-kun suddenly broke the ice.

[KAMANOSUKE]: “If we traveled together like that I think we’d increase the danger Yuzuki is exposed to…”

[SAIZOU]: “Indeed. That being the case, it becomes rather good that we were refused.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Ye… ah…”

Maybe he was cheered up by the three who didn’t look bothered, but Yukimura-kun also showed an awkward smile.

[YUKIMURA]: “But Himemiko-sama’s clue is in Takeda territory. What’ll we do about that…?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “This area will become a large battlefield so it is too dangerous to search like this.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “We should withdraw temporarily and look for another time. Until the battle is sorted out we can’t do anything but search for another way.”

[YUKIMURA]: “… You’re right.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Sorry, we’ll have to make you wait but we’ll definitely find a way to return you to your old world!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Yes, of course. But we must re-think the way we’ll get close to Himemiko-sama’s clue.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “However, this may be for the better. If we moved with Takeda like that there was also the fear of your power being known–“

[YUZUKI]: (Ah…)

I suddenly recalled the time when my blood was drunk by Nobuyuki-san.

[YUZUKI]: “… Everyone in the Takeda army probably… already knows about my blood, I think.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Huh!?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Could you tell us what you mean?”

[YUZUKI]: “Someone saw when my blood was being drunk by Nobuyuki-san. They were…”

Following that memory, I was able to remember the sight I saw at that time clearly.

[YUZUKI]: “A Takeda commander. I think it was the person beside Shingen-san.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “I see… then that is strange.”

[YUZUKI]: “Eh…?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “If Shingen knew your power, he should want to put you close by…”

[YUKIMURA]: “That’s certainly true… yet why did he send us home?”

Unable to understand Shingen-san’s intentions, everyone racked their brains.

[YUKIMURA]: “It can’t be…”

At that moment, Yukimura-kun opened his mouth as if in sudden realization.

[YUKIMURA]: “Was Shingen thinking about us and thrust us away?”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh, what do you mean–“

[YUKIMURA]: “Shingen knows just how important you are to us. So he sent us home on purpose…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “… I see. Her power is the same as Himemiko-sama’s, a power that can shake “Shinga”.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “If other armies were to learn of that, many of them will start moving to target her.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Shingen, knowing that, isn’t targeting her power and is keeping us away from the battlefield so that information won’t spread to Uesugi and Date…”

[SASUKE]: “Ohh…!”

[SAIZOU]: “It wouldn’t be strange for that man to take such actions.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Mm. I think so.”

The three nodded in agreement.

[YUKIMURA]: “But that being the case…”

[YUKIMURA]: “I can’t abandon Shingen and run away like this when he thought about us that much.”

However Nobuyuki-san replied cautiously to Yukimura-kun’s passionate words.

[NOBUYUKI]: “But, now that her power is known to the Takeda army, if we get close again then it may put her in danger.”

[YUKIMURA]: “That… might be so, but…”

[YUZUKI]: (Yukimura-kun said he couldn’t abandon Shingen-san. And yet…)

[YUZUKI]: (For Yukimura-kun to bend his beliefs because of me… I don’t want that!)

[YUZUKI]: “… I think we should assist the Takeda army.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Huh…!”

[YUZUKI]: “Because Shingen-san is someone you’re indebted to, you want to save him… that’s what you’re thinking, right?”

[YUKIMURA]: “That’s… But to put you in danger…”

[YUZUKI]: “I look up to the Yukimura-kun who thinks about the best for others at all times and acts without hesitation.”

[YUKIMURA]: “…!”

[YUZUKI]: “That’s why, I… don’t want to block that.”

Yukimura-kun’s eyes widened greatly and then his expression suddenly softened.

[YUKIMURA]: “… Thank you. You’ve settled my decision.”

Saying that, he looked around at everyone’s faces.

[YUKIMURA]: “–We’re heading to assist the Takeda army!”

[SHINGEN]: “Don’t falter! We’re the Takeda army who has no equals under the heavens. This level of difficulty is nothing!”

[TAKEDA ARMY SOLDIERS]: “… OORAH!!”

[YUKIMURA]: “–Shingen!”

[UESUGI SOLDIER]: “Wha… Takeda’s ambush!?”

A disturbance spread through the Uesugi army at the sudden appearance of reinforcement.

[SASUKE]: “Eat this! Self-style ninja art, Whirlwind!”

Piercing the opening that resulted from the disorder, Yukimura-kun and the others defeated the enemy soldiers one after another.

[SHINGEN]: “You guys!… Why’d you come? I told you not to follow me!”

[YUKIMURA]: “Still… I wanted to thank you no matter what–“

[YUKIMURA]: “The thanks for how you thought about us and let us run…”

[SHINGEN]: “…!”

[YUKIMURA]: “It’s because you’re such a person that we can’t abandon you and run away!”

[SHINGEN]: “Yukimura…”

[SHINGEN]: “… But do you plan on dragging that girl into this battle!?”

[YUZUKI]: “I… don’t mind.”

[SHINGEN]: “Wha…”

Shingen-san’s eyes went round when I decisively said that.

[YUZUKI]: “I want Yukimura-kun to be like Yukimura-kun. I want him to go through with his own beliefs.”

[YUZUKI]: “So, I’m okay with this…!”

[SHINGEN]: “… I… see.”

Shingen-san showed a soft smile and looked at me and then Yukimura-kun.

[SHINGEN]: “… You’ve found someone who’s hard to come by, Yukimura.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Shingen…”

[SHINGEN]: “That girl is a woman who is suitable to stand beside a general… Cherish her.”

[YUKIMURA]: “… Yes!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Just now… he spoke as if you were taking her as a wife, Yukimura.”

When Yukimura-kun was whispered to quietly his face turned bright red.

[YUKIMURA]: “What are you saying, brother! Shingen didn’t say it with that meaning!”

[SHINGEN]: “Hm? What about me?”

[YUKIMURA]: “N-Nothing!”

[SHINGEN]: “Haha, you’re pretty flustered.”

[SHINGEN]: “Anyway, it’s heartening that you guys came. It’s a tough situation but I want you to fight with us.”

[SHINGEN]: “Of course, to live up to your feelings, the Takeda army will also protect that girl with all our might.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Aah… thank you, Shingen.”

Like this the Sanada army and Takeda army formed an alliance and clashed with the Uesugi and Date combined forces.

[YUKIMURA]: “… Let’s go! Everyone, charge!”

    This is the first allied relationship in SnB that is actually a healthy, symbiotic one and doesn’t involve any kind of mindgames or throwing shade at each other. Shingen and Yukimura’s relationship is too good for this world please PLEASE PLEASE don’t let anything happen to Shingen in this route like in Sengoku Basara my kokoro can’t take it.

    Also that moment when Daddy in law gives his blessing for MC/Yuzuki AHHHHHHHH *fangirls* best moment in the route ever I swear.

      I want to believe that Shingen will be protected by plot armor in his own route but omg you’re right… what if something tragic happens to him while we’re in every route but his AH. (I’m still really hoping SNB goes down a more serious tone when we’re in the other routes. GIVE ME AN ACTUAL VICTOR!! That’s the point with having all these different army routes? So everyone can win in their AU but suffer and lose in the other routes–).

      Eheheh, I loved that part too ;D.

        Ikr??? I mean call me paranoid or something but years of eroge and otome games had made me overly suspicious when things start beiing too good to be true. Yukimura and Shingen actually having a good relationship with each other and Shingen looking out for Yukimura like a dad while Yukimura looks up to him in turn DURING an era where people are supposed to be fighting?Its raising a lot of warning death flags in my mind. (I actually also want this to be a thing despite all the angst xD my feels are gonna be all over the place)

    Who I was??, Nobuharu is too big to go unnoticed, Masakage would have made a scandal to see Nobuyuki drinking the blood of a woman, if it were Masatoyo nobody would have realized that it was there, I think Masanobu is the most acceptable option.

      Ilinox responded:
      September 25, 2018 at 19:38

      I was thinking probably Masanobu or Masatoyo |D I mean they use Masatoyo’s lack of presence as a huge gag but during battles everyone seems to have no problems in seeing him. And these two are constantly beside Shingen while Nobuharu and Masakage are at the front.

    Oh I see, Shingen really don’t mind at all about her power.
    [SHINGEN]: “That girl is a woman who is suitable to stand beside a general… Cherish her.”

    [YUKIMURA]: “… Yes!”

    [NOBUYUKI]: “Just now… he spoke as if you were taking her as a wife, Yukimura.” That’s what I understand too boss hahaha 😂 but are you ok with that?

      Shingen is too nice for this war :’)) despite how Yukimura describe him as being really aggressive. But look at him be so willing to protect the heroine for Yukimura!! I loved that line, eheh, getting acknowledged by another leader is always neat.

    Shingen-sama!
    I’m glad they understood the true motives of Shingen.
    And I agree. Our MC in this route is great, and they recognize her as such.

    Ilinox, I hope you are better. Thank you for keeping with the updates even though you’re not a your best.

    Take care. =)

      All these Shingen chapters make me miss Shingen so much :’)) but we’re so close!!

      Aw, thank you! I’m not suffering from anything or feeling bad, it’s just general treatment and checkups and stuff to fix imbalances in my body |D.

    Ah, finally can came back after another works *sobs* And the event was concluded, otsukare~

    And in this part…
    Nobuyuki: “Just now… he spoke as if you were taking her as a wife, Yukimura.”
    When Yukimura-kun was whispered to quietly his face turned bright red.
    Yukimura: “What are you saying, brother! Shingen didn’t say it with that meaning!”
    Shingen: “Hm? What about me?”

    LOL, I can’t stop laugh in that, but I had to choose between Shingen and Yukimura, I’ll choose Shingen, since for me Yukimura is more like brother than husband *teehee

    Thank you for your hard works, and get well soon ili~!

      Ilinox responded:
      September 24, 2018 at 11:45

      I wouldn’t hesitate to choose Shingen either |D sorry Yukimura–.

    Dad has given his blessing. lol

    That being said, it just feels funny to see Shingen asking Yukimura to take care of Yuzuki, because tbh, I think Shingen does it better. |D

      Ilinox responded:
      September 24, 2018 at 11:44

      PRETTY MUCH LOL. I loved this part because of how sweet Shingen is ;w; he’s so chivalrous through and through that he supports Yukimura, highlights how amazing the MC is, and is also willing to protect her for Yukimura. WHAT A MAN.

      Ahaha, just gotta wait until we get back to the Takeda route ;D.
