SNB Sanada ~ Chapter 9.5 ~

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 9.5

Several days after that day we fought the Uesugi army and Date army.

The letter from Takeda arrived and we gathered in the main hall to have a discussion.

[YUKIMURA]: “… From the letter, it seems like there’s no doubt Oda and Toyotomi joined. If these two armies have joined they’re going to be tough.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Next is whether we’ll join the allied armies of Takeda and Uesugi or not, huh.”

.[YUKIMURA]: “About that… I’ve been thinking these past few days.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Getting straight to the point… I think we should join with Takeda and Uesugi.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Right, that would be good. From a strategic point of view there are many benefits.”

[SASUKE]: “I have no problems at all! I’ll go anywhere if Yukimura’s there!”

[SAIZOU]: “If anything, I am worried about whether the allied soldiers will be jealous of my genius ninja techniques though…”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “You don’t have to worry about that…”

And then Yukimura-kun turned to me last and asked.

[YUKIMURA]: “What do you… think?”

[YUZUKI]: “Mm, I’ll follow yours and everyone’s opinion.”

To be honest, I thought it was natural to follow everyone else since it was related to war.

[YUKIMURA]: “No… that’s not it.”

But Yukimura-kun shook his head.

[YUKIMURA]: “You’re an equal comrade of ours. So, there’s no need to follow us without exception.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh, but…”

[SASUKE]: “Yeah, that’s right, if you have an opinion then you should say it without hesitation!”

[SAIZOU]: “You should have more confidence in your own opinion. After all, you are the woman I’ve acknowledged.”

[YUZUKI]: “B-But… even if you ask for an opinion I’m not well-versed in war like everyone else…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “It could be said that is precisely why we wish to hear from you.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “If you know nothing about war then you’re able to see things from a view that’s closer to our people, right?”

[YUZUKI]: (I see… there’s that thought too.)

[YUZUKI]: (Then I might be able to say a little…)

[YUZUKI]: “Actually… when I heard about how we might join the alliance I was a bit afraid.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Really…?”

[YUZUKI]: “Mhm. When I think about how another new battle will start…”

[YUZUKI]: “But I believe that there’s no mistake in everyone’s decision.”

I said that and Yukimura-kun smiled.

[YUKIMURA]: “Okay… I’m glad that you said that.”

Everyone else expressed their pleasure as well.

Honestly, I was nervous just giving my opinion, but…

[YUZUKI]: (I’m glad… saying it makes me feel a bit lighter, maybe.)

[YUKIMURA]: “Alright… for now the talk about an alliance is wrapped up with this.”

[YUKIMURA]: “Actually, one more important thing to talk about with everyone gathered.”

[YUKIMURA]: “–There’s still another piece of information written in this letter.”

[SASUKE]: “What’s written?”

[NOBUYUKI]: “It’s information relating to the Date army’s movements.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Recently, they seem to have traveled to the outskirts of the capital.”

[SASUKE]: “Hm? Isn’t it just dangerous area with yakuma knocking around? Why’d they go there.”

[YUKIMURA]: “The exact place is unknown. But that’s why Takeda and Uesugi are keeping an eye on suspicious movements.”

[YUKIMURA]: “So, I think my brother and I will check out the area close to the capital.”

[SASUKE]: “You two alone!? Not fair, I wanna go too!”

[SAIZOU]: “Putting aside Sasuke, to not take me along as well… What is the meaning of that?”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “We aren’t needed…?”

[YUKIMURA]: “No, no, that’s not it at all.”

[YUKIMURA]: “I want you guys to protect her in the castle.”

Saying that, Yukimura-kun pointed at me.

[SASUKE]: “… That’s true, there’s no way she can be taken to that yakuma-filled place.”

[SAIZOU]: “I see, if I am to be your bodyguard then I can accept this. I shall protect you magnificently.”

At that moment when everyone agreed.

[IMARI]: “Me too! I want to go too!”

Imari-kun appeared from between Yukimura-kun and Nobuyuki-san.


[KAMANOSUKE]: “… When were you there.”

[IMARI]: “Rude! I’ve been here since the beginning!”

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun, are you interested in the capital?”

[IMARI]: “Yes! The capital was originally the place where Himemiko-sama was. So, if we go near that we might find some kind of clue!”

[YUZUKI]: “I see…”

[YUZUKI]: “… Then I want to go too!”

[YUKIMURA]: “Whaa!? That’s a problem…”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Hrmm, if possible we’d be able to be at ease if you waited in the castle…”

Feeling that I was troubling the two, I hurriedly argued.

[YUZUKI]: “Um… see, the sacred treasure that was found in the shrine before… even though it looked like a regular hairpin it lighted up in a flash the moment I touched it.”

[YUZUKI]: “So, if you find something and try to judge whether it’s related to Himemiko-sama or not…”

[YUZUKI]: “I think it’d be faster if I came along.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “… Certainly, what you are saying is reasonable.”

[YUZUKI]: “Since I didn’t help out in the battle, at these times alone… please let me help.”

[NOBUYUKI]: “……”

Nobuyuki-san was silent for a short while. And then, he slowly opened his mouth–

[NOBUYUKI]: “… If you insist like that then we have no choice.”

[YUZUKI]: “T-Thank you very much!”

[NOBUYUKI]: “Yukimura, you have no problems either, right?”

[YUKIMURA]: “… Yeah, if this is what she’s decided on her own. But you absolutely can’t push yourself too hard.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay, I understand!”

[YUZUKI]: (I can go near the capital…)

[YUZUKI]: (I hope we can find a clue to Himemiko-sama…!)

    Yes, finally Sanada is heading to the world stage meaning clashing ideologies and potential character development. Well Uesugi already have that going for them, specifically Kenshin will he keep going as he is or forced to learn to be more flexible with his ideals?

    Congratulations, on surviving maximum bet! Instead of a ride it seems more like a plummet down feels mountain. I feel like I walked into a party two hours late only to find it engulfed in flames with everyone running and screaming with bits and pieces on the incident shouted out. Not a clue whatever happened it feels very tempting to go near the flaming canon ball that is max bet caused.

      Uesugi gets some of the most interesting character development because of how much Kenshin goes through LOL. I think Sanada already went through its minor character development / character reveal during that bit with Yukimura and Shingen. But yes *rubs hands* it’s world stage time for the Sanada army. We’re so close to moving into the second season!

      I’M STILL REELING OVER HOW AMAZING MAXIMUM BET IS. HSHSHSH. I finished it today so it’ll be up tomorrow but oh boy I’m kind of regretting that the whole series isn’t available for everyone to understand because the hints that lead into Arlen’s second CD and the references he makes back to his first CD and everyone else’s… damn. DAMN. Ahaha, I know exactly what gif you’re talking about and PRETTY MUCH. I’ve never loved a drama CD character so much, except for maybe Touji.

      Only Takeda is confirmed to know, though I do think Date has an idea. But this is also just Saizou’s usual narcissism at work, lmao, don’t take it too seriously |D.
