SNB Uesugi ~ Chapter 10.2 ~

Chapter 10: A Thousand Mixed Complications

The commanders are shaken by the order, announced suddenly from Kenshin, to invade the Oda and Toyotomi territories.

What is Kenshin’s real intention when he remains silent and does not try to speak…?

Chapter 10.2

[KENSHIN]: “There is nothing to discuss.”

Kenshin-san was cold towards Kagekatsu-kun who came to his room, saying he wished to talk.

[KAGEKATSU]: “Please just answer… one thing…”

[KAGEKATSU]: “This war… is there honor in it?”

[KENSHIN]: “……”

.[KAGEKATSU]: “… Is this a just battle…?”

[KENSHIN]: “… There is honor.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Then—“

[KENSHIN]: “Kagekatsu, you asked for one answer only.”

Kenshin-san glanced over at me but closed his mouth on that note.

[YUZUKI]: (I’m the one who suggested a talk, but instead it widened the trench between the two…)

I felt that Kenshin-san’s words were baffling, although I was also apologetic.

[YUZUKI]: (Kenshin-san… he seems to be hiding something…?)

[KAGEKATSU]: “Father, before you said this… didn’t you… that the next general… should make decisions by their own will…”

[KENSHIN]: “… Yes.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Then… I’m going to do that.”

Leaving behind those meaningful words, Kagekatsu-kun left the room.

[KENSHIN]: “This conversation is concluded. You will withdraw as well. I have war preparations to make.”

[YUZUKI]: “… Okay.”

I exited the room at Kenshin-san’s peremptory words and ran after Kagekatsu-kun.

 

[YUZUKI]: “Hey, Kagekatsu-kun!”

When I caught up to Kagekatsu-kun, I hurriedly called him to a stop.

[YUZUKI]: “Just now, you said that you were going to decided by your own will, right?”

[YUZUKI]: “What did you mean… with that?”

[KAGEKATSU]: “… Exactly as it means.”

[YUZUKI]: “…!”

[KAGEKATSU]: “… May I ask you one thing?”

[KAGEKATSU]: “If… if I wasn’t a Uesugi commander anymore…”

[YUZUKI]: (Wha…!)

[KAGEKATSU]: “Would you… come with me…?”

[YUZUKI]: (By that Kagekatsu-kun means…)

At those words I understood clearly what Kagekatsu-kun was going to decide on.

[KAGEKATSU]: “……”

Kagekatsu-kun waited for my answer, looking at me with eyes that seemed to cling.

[YUZUKI]: (Going together with Kagekatsu-kun means leaving Kenshin-san…)

[YUZUKI]: (But… I still want to believe in Kenshin-san…)

[YUZUKI]: “I…”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Sorry… for asking a strange thing… Forget it…”

Kagekatsu-kun seemed to have guessed something when I didn’t give an answer back and he averted his eyes before walking away.

[YUZUKI]: (Kagekatsu-kun is leaving Uesugi…?)

[YUZUKI]: (If that happens…)

The Uesugi army, which should have been united as one under Kenshin-san’s resolution would—

My heart felt blocked with the concerns of the army becoming scattered.

[YUZUKI]: (What should I do—)

[IMARI]: “Found you at last…”

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun… Sorry for leaving you back there.”

I crouched a little and picked up Imari-kun. Strangely, his warmth weakened my concerns.

[YUZUKI]: (This isn’t the time to be depressed, huh…)

[YUZUKI]: (I couldn’t do anything between Kenshin-san and Kagekatsu-kun alone.)

[YUZUKI]: (But… I can find friends who will help me…!)

As I petted Imari-kun I steadily regained my positive feelings.

[YUZUKI]: (People who have spent a long time with Kenshin-san might understand his thoughts…)

I started walking while thinking that.

 

[YUZUKI]: “Kageie-san…!”

The first person I found was Kagie-san, who was tending to the horses.

[KAGEIE]: “Yo, it’s you. What’s wrong?”

Kageie-san was working busily but he paused and greeted me.

[YUZUKI]: (It’s a little hard to ask Kageie-san when he’s preparing for war in such high spirits, but…)

[YUZUKI]: “Um… Kageie-san, do you know why Kenshin-san told us to start preparing for war?”

[KAGEIE]: “Nope. I still don’t know.”

Kageie-san shook his head easily.

[KAGEIE]: “But there’s no mistake in Kenshin-sama’s thoughts.”

[KAGEIE]: “You think so too, right?”

[YUZUKI]: “… Right.”

Looked at by Kageie-san’s eyes, which held no doubts, I nodded without thought.

[KAGEIE]: “Haha, that’s what I thought!”

I saw how happy Kageie-san seemed to be from hearing my reply and felt a sharp pain in my heart, like I had told a lie.

[YUZUKI]: “Sorry, excuse me…”

I took my leave from Kageie-san as if I was running away.

      I YELLED THERE BECAUSE !! Kagekatsu, guilt-tripping someone is NOT cool. How can he make the heroine choose between him and Kenshin!? You’re tearing this family apart, boy!!

      Haha, honestly, Kageie’s simple attitude might be for the best though :’D just like Katsuie and Nagahide, who are like “if Nobunaga said so then that’s what we’re going to do. No questions.”

    Phew, event was concluded… Otsukare~!! And… Just opened the game again and they will held another Hakuouki collab (*cough* Okita and Kagemochi *cough*) Idk it was event or gacha lol

    Back to topic. Hmm… If Kagekatsu truly quit from Uesugi army, just hope he didn’t doing reckless, along with her. And I didn’t found Kageie’s words as a lie…

    Thank you for your hard works…

      I was shocked seeing the collab with hakuouki T_T I want that Saitou & Sanosuke and Hijikata LOL I saw in the fb group that Kagemochi will be a ranking reward while Okita & new Shingen are 5* gacha.. Too many hot guys in the event ;( curse Otomate

      It took me a while to be free from frustration of Uesugi’s chapter 10. I just felt bad for Kenshin that I don’t know where to start to talk about Kagekatsu & MC’ behavior here. Not mention about those “feeling stuffs” MC kept thinking about without realizing Kenshin’s position. I’m afraid I will keep complaining LOL so I just wait for the chapters to pass off.

        I had to laugh at how easily Kageie was like “Nope! I don’t understand him at all, but that’s okay” |D;; I mean I do understand where the MC and Kagekatsu are coming from about feeling uneasy if your general is going down a bad path and you fundamentally disagree with decisions being made. But at the same time, you have to trust in your own decision and faith for following that general. I’m just being reminded of what went down between Nobunaga and Mitsuhide again; the reason Nobunaga didn’t explain everything was because of spies in the army and Mitsuhide just needed more faith.

        @AMBER: The paired cards with Souji and Kagemochi look less cool than the previous one with Hijikata and Kenshin (that pretty moon background) but dammit they know where to hit me by putting Kagemochi there…

        LOL pretty much my attitude about Ch10 too. It gets better at 10.4 (aka. when all the drama finally ends) but I have to applaud the game for making me feel frustrated but sympathetic still. It’s not that I don’t get where Kagekatsu and the MC are coming from and I still think the lessons Kenshin taught Kagekatsu about following through on his own decisions and belief (especially as the future general) are important. But at the same time I want to shake them for their lack of faith in Kenshin LOL. Blind belief is bad, yes, but constantly questioning your general is too!!

    [KAGEKATSU]: “If… if I wasn’t a Uesugi commander anymore…”
    [KAGEKATSU]: “Would you… come with me…?”

    I took my leave from Kageie-san as if I was running away.

      There’s only one thing to do when a soldier disagrees with their general :’)) going back through this Uesugi chapters reminds me of what happened to Oda in the past with Mitsuhide and Nobunaga, haha.

      LOL I thought the same thing too about Kageie but he’s busy and he’s so dense about girls he’ll probably be like “??? must be a girl thing”.
