SNB Uesugi ~ 光盟 Chapter 1.2 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 1: A Long Way to Go

Forming an alliance and aiming for Mouri territory, Kenshin and the others obtained information on how the preceding alliance of Oda, Toyotomi, and Date were arranging a counter attack.

As the outbreak of a war approached, each and every person’s resolution is questioned…

Chapter 1.2

After we safely accomplished joining up with the Takeda army and Sanada army we began to run towards Mouri territory again.

[YUZUKI]: (I wonder how far we’ve come… It feels like we’ve advanced a lot though…)

Maybe it was because the forest continued to go on, but it was like I was looking at the same scenery and I became disoriented.

[KENSHIN]: “… Are you alright?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, I’m fine. Thank you for worrying.”

[YUZUKI]: (Rather than me, I hope everyone else is alright…)

As I worried about everyone who continued to march forward without any rest I heard Shingen-san’s voice from behind.

[SHINGEN]: “Kenshin! Why don’t we take a break here?”

[KENSHIN]: “Aa, you’re right… It would be good to work out the details together with this break.”

[KENSHIN]: “Kagemochi, convey to everyone that we are to rest.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Acknowledged.”

 

[KANETSUGU]: “At any rate, it’s a strange feeling to have the Takeda army and Sanada army together with us.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Yes, although even if we are joined together for a battle we are not aiming for the same thing.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “If only everyone can be allied like this and be peaceful…”

[KAGEIE]: “Well, it’d be great if that was possible. The one doing that would be—“

The sounch of a growling stomach was heard from Kageie-san, who tried to continue his words.

[KANETSUGU]: “Kageie-san… just now…”

[KAGEIE]: “Ha ha! It’s because breakfast was early!”

[YUZUKI]: “Um… I made some rice balls. Would you like some?”

[KAGEIE]: “Ohh! That’d save me!”

[KAGEIE]: “Don’t mind if I do!… Omnom…”

[YUZUKI]: (He’s eating it at an amazing speed! Kageie-san was that hungry, huh.)

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Kageie, if you eat that hurriedly you’ll choke.”

[KAGEIE]: “Don’t worry! If I don’t eat quickly, the monster in my stomach won’t stop crying.”

[KAGEIE]: “Can I have one more?”

[KANETSUGU]: “Kageie-san, that’s mine!”

[YUZUKI]: “Haha, there’s still a lot so don’t worry.”

[YUZUKI]: (I’m glad everyone’s happy.)

[KAGEKATSU]: “……”

[YUZUKI]: “Here, Kagekatsu-kun, you eat too.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Thank you… Did you make this for us…?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yep! When I thought about what I could do right now, I could only think of something like this…”

[KAGEKATSU]: “No… it’s not just something… You’re the only one… who can do this.”

My heart suddenly became lighter with Kagekatsu-kun’s words and, at the same time, before I knew it tears trailed down my cheeks.

[KAGEKATSU]: “…!?”

[KAGEKATSU]: “D-don’t cry…”

[KAGEKATSU]: “… Does it… hurt anywhere?”

[YUZUKI]: “No… it’s not that…”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m happy you said I’m the only one who can do this…”

[KAGEKATSU]: “I see… I’m glad then… because I don’t want you to be sad…”

[KAGEKATSU]: “I’ll work hard too… so you can smile.”

[YUZUKI]: “Thank you, Kagekatsu-kun. But don’t be reckless.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “You too.”

We smiled at each other and made a promise.

[YUZUKI]: “I’m going to hand out the rest now.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Mm, see you later.”

 

[YUZUKI]: (… The last is Kenshin, but where is he… ah, there!)

[YUZUKI]: (But Kenshin-san and the others are talking… I shouldn’t call out to them right now.)

[KENSHIN]: “What is the matter?”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m sorry for interrupting… Um… I brought some rice balls. If you’d like, please eat some.”

[KENSHIN]: “… You made these?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes. There’s pickled plums inside.”

[KENSHIN]: “I see… Thank you—“

[YUZUKI]: “… How is it?”

[KENSHIN]: “Mm, delicious.”

[KENSHIN]: “Everyone will be able to replenish their energy with this, owing to you.”

Kenshin-san said that and showed a faint smile.

The smile was like a surprise attack and I was so happy I unconsciously looked down.

[YUZUKI]: (Kageie-san, who ate the rice balls with relish, and Kagekatsu-kun, who took notice of my feelings, too…)

[YUZUKI]: (And Kenshin-san, who gave me a smile— Everyone’s so kind.)

I could still work hard. That feeling strongly came to fill up my heart.

    Err, trust me I’m not ready what will happen in next part of this route. Can’t calm down but in other side I feel curious. What a dilemma X(

    But yep, just like everyone said in comments, MC in here got easily crying and welp, she truly forgot about Shingen and Yukimura in there. Maybe the writer make two of them was called by their comrades but who knows…

    Thank you for your hard works…

      The suspense is certainly being built up super high LOL almost all the chapters seem to end on the cliffhanger of the Sanada situation. Meanwhile, I’m just sitting here pounding my fists on the table being like “Fight, fight, fight!!” haha. I’m super curious as to what the Mouri army is planning during all this.

    I just love you and your work, I found you a few days ago and can’t stop reading everything you posted. I haven’t read the card stuff or the (+) stuff, but have finished what you have for all the armies besides Date and Mouri.

    I think you’re the best, this inspired me to think about playing the game in Japanese once you have translated everything! I’ve never done it, but watch anime all the time in Japanese (with subtitles) and think with how complete your transcripts are (plus I recognize some voiced phrases) I might get through it okay. Even just to enjoy the CVs&artwork!

    I finished the anime just before looking you up, really glad I kept searching after the manga showed no scanlations being done yet…

    Thanks for your hard work and I hope you never abandon this!

      Aw, thank you for such a lovely comment ;3;/!

      The CVs and all the character sprites definitely adds to the experience! Although, this is still a mobile game so before you can read all the stories you’ll need to be able to handle the random grinding for levels/keys to unlock the stories and things /o\. I wrote an Introduction Guide which might help explain what all the buttons are and things!

      I don’t think SNB is popular enough in the West to get scanlations done :’)) but who knows! I did do live reads of the manga but that’s never the full experience, haha.

    Aww, MC, don’t cry! ; u ;
    You probably just made poor Kagekatsu panic!
    Praise for him though for comforting MC, that was cute. That’s like what, the second time he’s had to deal with her tears?
    Also love Kageie’s voice work here. He sounded so hungry!!!!

      At times I feel like Kagekatsu and the MC bring out the worst in each other LOL. The next chapter made me frown at Kagekatsu, but this chapter had me tilting my head at how weepy the MC was.

      It’s cute how they’re squabbling over the food too. Kanetsugu’s offended voice when Kageie tries to go for his LOL.

    It’s nice to have a light hearted moments like this in this roller-coaster route so….. It’s a breather to me ( ̄▽ ̄)

      True true! I’m laughing a bit at the last part because they make it sound like he was talking to Shingen and Yukimura, but then MC interrupts and gives him food and like… uhh what about Shingen and Yukimura? Are they just standing there politely looking away while Kenshin has his time with his girl? LOL. Or did Kenshin excuse himself and come to her? But they’re still nearby??? This scene LOL.

    [KAGEKATSU]: “If only everyone can be allied like this and be peaceful…”

    it’s actually possible if you think about it. but their selfish desire that it has to us who united shinga is the problem.

    [KAGEIE]: “Well, it’d be great if that was possible. The one doing that would be—“

    was he about to say kenshin’s name? i couldnt think of something else.

    [KAGEKATSU]: “No… it’s not just something… You’re the only one… who can do this.”
    [YUZUKI]: “I’m happy you said I’m the only one who can do this…”

    i can understand the feeling yuzuki has. war is coming. she’s trying her best. and im still hoping nothing will happen. off all the route’s out there, this is the only route im sure my emotions will be played.

    The smile was like a surprise attack and I was so happy I unconsciously looked down.

    kenshin rarely smile. i might as well have a direct eye contact with him.

      I think Kageie was going to say Kenshin’s name too |D. He can’t resist a chance to brag about his leader.

      Kenshin’s smile is too blinding :’D it’s impossible to look at it directly, haha.

    Hmmm is it just me or is Yuzuki is easily moved to tears in this route? I don’t recall her crying this much in the other routes other than being very upset in severe situations? Well I mean Takakage was a complete prick to her in the beginning and I was surprised how calmly she handled it when many would be tempted to explode.

      Ilinox responded:
      March 19, 2019 at 12:32

      I think so too and that she’s /obsessed/ with helping and being useful (which is what led her to crying over being acknowledged). It’s a bit weird and intriguing because of how Kenshin’s influence on her is like this…

      Oda and Toyotomi’s heroine seems much more grounded in comparison, huh. And Date’s heroine too. Takeda’s heroine has found a purpose in being a healer and Sanada’s heroine has to be semi-mature because of the three babies LOL. And, yeah, like you said Mouri’s heroine can stand her ground against Takakage.

      You’d think Uesugi’s heroine would be a bit more down-to-earth because she helps raise Kagekatsu’s self-esteem but I guess raising someone up doesn’t necessarily mean you raise yourself up either LOL.
