SNB Uesugi ~ Chapter 9.2 ~

Posted on Updated on

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 9.2

I couldn’t do anything but watch intently as everyone in Uesugi advanced towards the large force right in front of us.

[YUZUKI]: (Kenshin-san, everyone… I’m sure they’ll be okay, right?)

I had to believe in everyone, but while I thought that I was unable to suppress my anxiety at our enemy’s might.


I looked beside me and Kagekatsu-kun was also silent and clenching his fist to the point where his hand was white.

[YUZUKI]: (So, Kagekatsu-kun is also uneasy…)

When I thought about Kagekatsu-kun’s kindness earlier when he tried to soften my anxieties—

[YUZUKI]: (This time I’ll…)

I gently placed my hand on top of Kagekatsu-kun’s tightly clenched fist.

[KAGEKATSU]: “……!”

Kagekatsu-kun was slightly surprised and then looked at me.

[KAGEKATSU]: “I should believe… in my father and everyone. But I’m still this uneasy. It’s pathetic, isn’t it…”

The lips that murmured that seemed to tremble a little.

[YUZUKI]: “Even if we believe in them, we’ll worry. Because…”

I looked straight up at Kagekatsu-kun, who was staring hard at me, and met his eyes.

[YUZUKI]: “… Kenshin-san is really important to us…”

The tension from Kagekatsu-kun’s face, as we looked at each other, seemed to disappear a bit.

[KAGEKATSU]: “Mm, you’re right… thank you.”

Kagekatsu-kun opened his fist and squeezed my hand hard.

[YUZUKI]: (I’ll believe… and wait. For everyone…)

I grabbed Kagekatsu-kun’s hand back in the same way and prayed for Kenshin-san and everyone’s safety.

[KANETSUGU]: “Hey, how long are you two going to stand there. Let’s get away to a place where those guys won’t find us.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Right.”

Urged by Kanetsugu-san, I shook off my concerns and left the place.


When the Uesugi army clashed with the Takeda and Sanada armies directly in front of them, the two sides immediately started fighting.


[SHINGEN]: “Haha! Kenshin… to come directly at us with this number of people—“

[SHINGEN]: “Are you looking down on us? Or are you trying to say you’re confident?”

[KENSHIN]: “… Neither.”

The two generals of both sides were strangely calm.

[SHINGEN]: “Then why’d you come with such a small force… Do you want to be killed?”

[KENSHIN]: “… Enough with the boring provocations, Shingen.”

[KENSHIN]: “From the beginning, you did not intend to force your way with this large force, correct?”

[SHINGEN]: “… Why do you say that.”

[KENSHIN]: “If you were a simple commander who would spread an ostentatious army like this and attack—“

[KENSHIN]: “The Takeda army would have long been utterly destroyed.”

[SHINGEN]: “… Jeez, you won’t let me see a single look of discomposure… As always, you’re a shrewd man.”

[KENSHIN]: “… Thus, what is your purpose.”

[SHINGEN]: “What, I heard you joined with Date so I just came to check things out.”

[SHINGEN]: “Let’s leave everything around us to our vassals… and have our own competition between us.”

[KENSHIN]: “… Very well.”

Like that, Uesugi Kenshin and Takeda Shingen’s battle quietly began.

[SHINGEN]: “… Damn, no matter how many times we fight there’s no opening…”

While the battle of both armies happened, Kenshin and Shingen continued their rivalry.

[SHINGEN]: “… But that’s why it’s interesting. Fighting with you!”

[KENSHIN]: “… Like usual, you’re a tenacious man.”

Both of their blades crossed many times with none of their vigor declining at all.

At that time—

[TAKEDA SOLDIER]: “… Reporting!”

[TAKEDA SOLDIER]: “Just now, information has arrived on the movement of the aforementioned allied forces!”

[SHINGEN]: “What did you say…?”

[KENSHIN]: “…!?”

[SHINGEN]: “Che… those guys moved, huh… It’s much quicker than I expected…”

[KENSHIN]: “Those men…?”
