SNB Uesugi ~ Chapter 9.1 ~

Chapter 9: All or Nothing

In the moment a predicament was escaped, the large army of Takeda and Sanada were soon approaching.

Kenshin, who was concerned about the castle town becoming a battlefield, chose to confront them in an overwhelmingly unfavorable situation…!

Chapter 9.1

[KENSHIN]: “… So, the Takeda army and Sanada army has made an alliance.”

[KAGEIE]: “…? What do you mean?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “He means that Shingen, having learned that we allied with Date, assembled a force that could oppose that.”

[KANETSUGU]: “Che… in the end, our alliance wasn’t established. Can’t they not come?”

[YUZUKI]: (No way… For the Takeda army and Sanada army to attack at the same time…)

A hopeless uneasiness welled up from the depths of my heart.

[KAGEKATSU]: “… It’ll be okay.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…”

[KAGEKATSU]: “No matter what happens, we’ll protect you.”

Kagekatsu-kun looked straight at me and said that.

[KANETSUGU]: “… Jeez, do you think we can’t let one person like you escape safely?”

[YUZUKI]: “No…! To be the only one to run—“

When I tried to speak, Kanetsugu-san turned a severe gaze at me.

[KANETSUGU]: “Even if you’re here, you’ll just be a burden.”

[YUZUKI]: “That’s—“

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Despite the way he is speaking, Kanetsugu is also concerned about you.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Furthermore…”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “We wish to avoid you falling into Takeda’s hands again by all means.”

Kagemochi-san, who calmly smoothed over Kanetsugu-san’s words, looked at me hard with his brows furrowed.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Even in knowing about the power of your blood makes Takeda quite a dangerous existence.”

[YUZUKI]: (He’s right… I know. I know… but…)

[KAGEIE]: “Don’t worry! Even if Takeda and Sanada have bundled up, they aren’t Uesugi’s enemies!

[KAGEIE]: “I’ll kick away all of them together!”

Kageie-san, listening beside us, said that with his usual attitude.

However, I could see a tension that couldn’t be hidden on the face that said those assertive words.

[YUZUKI]: (In order to let me run, he’s talking about it like it’s nothing…)

[YUZUKI]: (If I were to be caught by the Takeda army and my blood sucked, then Kenshin-san and the others will be driven to a corner…)

I understood that well enough in my head, but to leave everyone even though it might become a dangerous battle… when I thought that, my heart felt like it would be crushed.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… Well then, about what to do from here—“

That discussion began to start while I was still troubled.

[KENSHIN]: “Kagekatsu, Kanetsugu, I entrust this girl to you two. I want you to evacuate to a safe location.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “… Understood. Please leave it to us.”

[KANETSUGU]: “We will accomplish Kenshin-sama’s orders without fail.”

[KAGEIE]: “Kenshin-sama! What’ll we do about Takeda and Sanada? Will we kick them down with just us?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Kageie. The soldiers we deployed in our Uesugi army were to locate this girl and to clean up after the fire in the castle town.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “To battle in a state where war preparations have not been arranged is…”

[KENSHIN]: “No, that concern is unneeded. I sent orders to the soldiers through a messenger.”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…?”

[KENSHIN]: “The Uesugi army is to gather in the direction a light is released— was the message.”

[YUZUKI]: (…!)

[YUZUKI]: “Um… is it not possible to return to Uesugi territory and avoid a battle…!?”

[KENSHIN]: “… Yes. There are still flames on the other side. If we can see them from here, then it is likely that they can see us.”

[KENSHIN]: “If we were to retreat in this situation, Shingen and his men would surely chase.”

[KENSHIN]: “In that case, the castle town will become a battlefield and a great chaos may occur for the people…”

[KAGEIE]: “Then, we’re…!”

[KENSHIN]: “Correct. From here, we will advance and confront the Takeda and Sanada army…!”

    It’s weird that I can’t feel much from Kanetsugu’s offensive words anymore… comparing to some of Hakuouki guys, lol Kanetsugu is much softer.

    OK bring it on ;-; I’m ready to re-read Uesugi’s chapters!

      RIGHT? It’s scary how quickly you can grow acclimatized to abuse, or encounter someone worse and then feel like Kanetsugu isn’t all that bad in comparison. I can’t wait for you to meet Takakage in the Mouri army (which we’re so close to!! after Uesugi!!) because he’ll make Kanetsugu look like a puppy that’s all bark and no bite.

    Finally, Uesugi’s story was come… Better prepared my heart until the last of ch. 10 TvT

    Kanetsugu, can you being honest for this time? MC got scared because Takeda-Sanada alliance is near in that place you guys stood and she didn’t want to leave you guys behind you know… And, Kenshin, don’t tell me that you’re serious to doing that…

    Thank you for your hard works…

      IIRC there’s no more sad things |D;; though just a few frustrating bits and Kenshin being Kenshin (as much as I love him he’s also so aloofly stubborn, grr).

      LOL Kanetsugu’s way of comforting people is just too mean. I’m also surprised that they still want to keep her away from Takeda because if they already know about her blood then you’d think using it to turn the tides here would be a good idea /o\ unless Kenshin is actually not confident in being able to protect her even with the power of her blood. But… *whispers* if Uesugi falls then she’s fair game anyway!!

    Haahhh…. Cleaning up the Date army’s mess that they left behind (including the kidnapping) and now confronting the Takeda and Sanada army. Hmm…. How will Kenshin convince Shingen here in this route this time.

      Back to Kenshin’s trial of his ideals vs desires LOL.

      It’s been so long since we came back to the Uesugi army that I actually had to look back at the previous chapters to remember what happened |D;; but yeah they were left in a huge mess and now immediately kicked into a giant battle all by themselves (since Date ditched them).

    [KENSHIN]: “Correct. From here, we will advance and confront the Takeda and Sanada army…!”
    ahem… that’s suicide.

      Right now, Uesugi is stuck between a hard place and a rock though >< Kenshin is admirable for trying to stop Takeda and Sanada farther away at the borders instead of leading them back to the castle town where civilians can get involved.
