SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 9.3 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 9: Advance, Pursuing Victory!

The Sanada army, who formed an alliance with Takeda, fought against the approaching Date army.

While they were scattering enemies in succession, Nobuyuki suddenly felt a sense of discomfort. When he did, in that moment…!

Chapter 9.3

The Oda army and Toyotomi army formed an alliance… Hearing that, Nobuyuki-san was disturbed.

[NOBUYUKI]: “What do you mean exactly?”

[MASAMUNE]: “There’s no how or why, what was said was everything.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Our battle with you ends here as well.”

.[MASAMUNE]: “Kojuurou, convey this matter to Uesugi and we’re withdrawing.”

[MASAMUNE]: “The rest… should move on their own.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Acknowledged.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Wait! This talk isn’t…!”

The two from the Date army ignored Nobuyuki-san’s voice and left the place.

[NOBUYUKI]: “Oda and Toyomi have joined hands… what in the world…?”

[YUZUKI]: “Nobuyuki-san…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Nothing can be done even if I think about it here. For the present, let us join up with Yukimura and the others.”

[YUZUKI]: “Um… I’m sorry!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Hm? Why are you apologizing?”

[YUZUKI]: “Because I was here I ended up dragging you down…”

Nobuyuki-san shook his head.

[NOBUYUKI]: “We were the ones who decided to take you, so don’t feel that because you have your role.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Incidentally.”

Saying that, Nobuyuki-san took my hand.

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Just now, you talked about your blood in front of Date Masamune, didn’t you.”

[YUZUKI]: “Ah, that was…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Even if we were to break through that spot using the power of your blood, you would be targeted next time.”

Nobuyuki-san gave a kiss to the back of my hand while saying that.

A slight pain ran through me. At some point it seemed like I was injured.

[NOBUYUKI]: “I’ve said it many times but I cannot let you do such a dangerous thing.”

Nobuyuki-san took out a cloth and carefully wrapped my wound to cover it.

[YUZUKI]: (Nobuyuki-san’s hand… is warm.)

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Now, we’ll treat that properly after we return to the castle.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Thank you very much.”

When I said my thanks I heard a voice from a distance that wasn’t far away.

[YUKIMURA]: “Broother?”

[SASUKE]: “Heeey, where are you guys?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “It appears that Yukimura and the others have also settled things. Let’s join them.”

Nobuyuki-san said that and took my hand again.

[SASUKE]: “Listen! I blew away toooons of those Date army guys even over there!”

[SAIZOU]: “Heh, I wished to show you my magnificent ninja technique works.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I worked hard…”

[YUZUKI]: “Everyone, good work. I’m glad you’re all safe.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Mhm, you and my brother don’t seem injured either…”

Talking up to that point, Yukimura-kun noticed my cloth-wrapped hand.

[YUKIMURA]: “Huh, that hand…! No way, did you get caught in the battle!?”

[YUZUKI]: “Erm, it was my carelessness so it had nothing to do with the battle…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “But it is the truth you were involved.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Huh…?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Date Masamune appeared.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Wha… you two should have been in the back, right?!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “He seemed to have aimed for there. His purpose wasn’t certain but…”

[SASUKE]: “I thought Date’s general couldn’t be found and turns out he went over there!”

[SAIZOU]: “Then you drove away the general of Date while protecting her, did you not?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… As expected of Nobuyuki-sama.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “No, the other side withdrew.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Oda and Toyotomi formed an alliance. They left those words.”

But Yukimura-kun and the others weren’t surprised even after hearing that.

[YUKIMURA]: “… I heard the same thing from Kenshin.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “What…?”

[YUKIMURA]: “After we defeated most of the Date army we were asked by the Takeda army to go as Shingen’s reinforcements.”

[YUKIMURA]: “So, when we thought we finally caught up, Shingen and Kenshin were confronting each other.”

[SASUKE]: “And then we rushed over in a hurry.”

[SASUKE]: “But Kenshin started speaking, “Oda and Toyotomi have bound an alliance. Let us join hands as well”, like that.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “That Kenshin said that… Did Shingen consent?”

[YUKIMURA]: “He was troubled but in the end acknowledged it.”

[YUKIMURA]: “… However, I put the alliance matter on hold. I wanted time to think.”

[YUZUKI]: “To think that Shingen-san joined with the Uesugi army…”

[SASUKE]: “Somehow, it feels like we got into something big while searching for a clue about Himemiko-sama.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Yes. It’s best to sort out this situation, so let us return home to the castle.”

At Nobuyuki-san’s voice we made our way back while holding onto uneasiness.

(T/N: Sasuke’s impression of Kenshin here is HILARIOUS |D he goes all low voice and speaks with Kenshin’s old-fashioned speech.)

    Out of topic for a while. Just found this on my timeline, and wow…
    http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2018/09/25/touken-ranbu-fans-come-get-your-26000-life-sized-sword-boy

    Back to topic. Saw you note, and YES I’M AGREE! I can’t stop laugh somehow when hearing that part of Sasuke XD And… Masamune as always, you can’t read him well, even in this route I can’t predict his mind after all.

    Thank you for your hard works~!

      Ahah, Mikazuki is pretty much the poster boy of Touken Ranbu |D.

      I’m starting to think that Masamune may have set all the alliances up, aka. he goads Uesugi and Takeda into fighting and then leaks rumors about them allying themselves so that Oda and Toyotomi catch wind of this and make an alliance for real. And then Uesugi and Takeda, once the see the real alliance between Oda and Toyotomi, also ally themselves for real. It all happens so close together and they’re all reacting to each other and their perceived alliances that I’m like “Hmm… if Oda-Toyotomi only came together because they thought Uesugi-Takeda came together, but Uesugi-Takeda came together only because they thought Oda-Toyotomi came together then… someone was leaking these rumors LOL”.

    (T/N: Sasuke’s impression of Kenshin here is HILARIOUS |D he goes all low voice and speaks with Kenshin’s old-fashioned speech.) I REMEMBER THIS! I was like ∑(゚ロ゚〃) Sasuke, why are you imitating Kenshin’s way of speaking…. I’m gonna tell you to Kagemochi…….! (இ﹏இ`。)。・゚゚・(>д<)・゚゚・。

    Um… what just happened? Did this happen once before? It was also quite different in the anime’s alliances… °-°

      Ilinox responded:
      September 26, 2018 at 14:19

      Didn’t everyone join up in the anime, basically? |D But if you’ve read the other routes I’ve translated (aka. Oda and Date’s) then yep it’s happened before and basically every route confirms their version of these events but the alliances are settled.

    If shingen, takeda, uesugi, and date join forces, it will be vampire vs werewolves, huh.
    The (not really) age-old rivalries.

    Date is the wild card here, though. If they join the vampires, it will feel like schemers vs idealists. lol.
    On the other hand, I like them as free agent, wreaking havoc on both sides, or perhaps more possibly, attack when both sides have already tired themselves out.

      Btw, now I need to find this. |D

        Ehehe, there’s some spoilers about what the real alliances are in Oda and Date’s routes though if you remember ;D I feel like Oda, Toyotomi, and Date are free agents LOL because even though Oda and Toyotomi are “allied” with each other they’re definitely going to try and push each other into the most disadvantageous position whenever possible.

        I almost want to hear Sasuke imitate all the other leaders LOL it’s funny and cute.

    wouldnt it be better if its shingen-sanada-useigi against oda-toyotomi-(possibly date)?

      Ilinox responded:
      September 26, 2018 at 14:16

      That’s what happens in the end if you remember Oda and Toyotomi’s route. Oda confirms its alliance with Date in Ch10 and Date confirms heading to Oda in their Ch10 |D.
