SNB Uesugi ~ 光盟 Chapter 1.4 ~

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 1.4

[KENSHIN]: “—You are all here.”

[YUZUKI]: (I wonder if Kenshin-san returning means the discussion with Shingen-san and the others are done?)

[KAGEKATSU]: “Father… how was the war council…?”

[KENSHIN]: “Aah… the battle will begin tomorrow morning.”

[YUZUKI]: (It’s finally going to get started…)

.[KENSHIN]: “I apologize for asking this, but could you summon Kagemochi and Kageie?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, of course.”

After I quickly found Kagemochi-san and Kageie-san and returned, Kenshin-san faced everyone who was gathered and began to speak.

[KENSHIN]: “It was decided in the war council that we would attack tomorrow morning.”

[KAGEIE]: “Meaning the other armies around us have moved, huh! It doesn’t look like there’s any chaos… so it was within expectations?”

[KENSHIN]: “Yes, ever since we set our sights on Mouri, there would be a battle sooner or later. It is merely happening now.”

[KENSHIN]: “No matter who our opponents are, we will advance with our full strength… Prepare to attack.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Understood.”

[KENSHIN]: “We will likely head out tomorrow at dawn. Everyone, I would like you to arrange your preparations in haste.”

[KAGEIE]: “I’m always ready for a charge!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Kageie, I value your enthusiasm, but please don’t be thoughtless.”

[KAGEIE]: “Wha! There’s no way I’d be that!”

[KANETSUGU]: “Kageie-san, we’re counting on you.”

[YUZUKI]: (I need to ask if there’s anything I can help with—)

Thinking that, I was about to move until I met eyes with Kagekatsu-kun.

Kagekatsu-kun turned to Kenshin-san and spoke.

[KAGEKATSU]: “… May I ask something?”

[YUZUKI]: (Kagekatsu-kun…? I wonder what’s wrong.)

[KAGEKATSU]: “Father, in this battle… what will she be doing…?”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Every time a battle takes place, she gets put in danger…”

[YUZUKI]: (Kagekatsu-kun… he’s been worrying about me all this time…)

[KENSHIN]: “……”

[KAGEKATSU]: “If you’re bringing her to this battle… I…”

[KENSHIN]: “The one to decide that is not you.”

Kenshin-san sent a look in my direction and quietly asked me.

[KENSHIN]: “… What do you wish to do?”

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…”

[KENSHIN]: “I would like to hear your will.”

[YUZUKI]: “I… will go with everyone.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “But… this battle is different from all the ones up to now…”

[YUZUKI]: “Kagekatsu-kun, thank you for worrying.”

[YUZUKI]: “But I’ve decided that I’m going to do what I can do.”

[YUZUKI]: “And the one who taught me that was you, Kagekatsu-kun.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “……”

[KENSHIN]: “… It’s decided then.”

[KENSHIN]: “No matter what happens, I will protect her with all that I have.”

[KENSHIN]: “Kagekatsu, do you not share the same feelings?”

[KAGEKATSU]: “… Yes.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “I’ll definitely protect you, so…”

Kagekatsu-kun said that with a determined look and then left.

[KENSHIN]: “… It appears your resolve is unwavering.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes!”

[KENSHIN]: “I see. I shall tell you one thing then… Do not do the impossible, no matter the situation.”

[YUZUKI]: (Not overdoing things… That might be the best thing I can do but—)

[YUZUKI]: “I won’t do anything unreasonable. However… if I can help everyone then I’ll do anything. Please let me do that…!”

[KENSHIN]: “Aa… I’m relying on you.”

Kenshin-san’s hand, as he touched my shoulder and said that, was very warm.

    Erm, in this part…
    Kenshin : “It was decided in the war council that we would attack tomorrow morning.”
    “Meaning the other armies around us have moved, huh! It doesn’t look like there’s any chaos… so it was within expectations?”

    Who’s said that one? Kageie? Or Kanetsugu? Kinda forget in that part…

    Ugh, I’m not ready again what will happen in this route… Even Kenshin said not to overdo things to MC, juuussstt hope that she keep promise that she didn’t do dangerous things.

    Thank you for your hard works…!!!
    PS. This SNB event… Somehow I didn’t feel to grinding in that event idk why :(

      It was Kageie and I’ve fixed it, thank you! Wow, I’m making a ton of mistakes lately, huh… I think I need to take a break LOL.

      Mouri and Sanada aren’t high up on your army list? |D;; I’ve learned how to grind in events now so I don’t spend much time at all. I just check in every 6 hours-ish to keep my AP from topping up and then on the last day I’ll put on an informational YT video (like checking movie analyses or why planes are built the way they are) and just spend all my event items fighting the super boss. That should easily bump you into rankings to grab a 5*.

    “[KAGEKATSU]: “If you’re bringing her to this battle… I…””
    — Or you’ll what? Break off from Uesugi and elope with her? Go against daddy and make her stay at the castle?

    “[KAGEKATSU]: “I’ll definitely protect you, so…”

    Kagekatsu-kun said that with a determined look and then left.”

    UUUUUGGGGHHHH Such foreboding context~

    I really appreciate that Kagekatsu is concerned with her safety, but as a commander, he kind of needs to prioritize the success of the mission and THEN her safety. It’s understandable that her safety is tied to the mission overall, but let’s be real –Kenshin wouldn’t be that naive to put MC in the worst possible position, therefore minimizing the chances she’ll be in immediate danger. Pretty sure even an under-seasoned commander would know this much. Have faith in your general, Kagekatsu.

      You have the same thoughts as me /o\ I was really frustrated with Kagekatsu here because HELLO? Does he not think Kenshin and Kagemochi wouldn’t be taking all measures possible to protect her? He doesn’t realize that him moving her around like a “too-delicate-to-even-be-there” thing is worse because it makes her feel useless, you’ll split the army and resources to protect her in a farther away place, and she actually does have tactical uses to justify why she’s on the battlefield LOL.

    [KAGEKATSU]: “Father, in this battle… what will she be doing…?”
    [YUZUKI]: “I… will go with everyone.”
    [KENSHIN]: “I see. I shall tell you one thing then… Do not do the impossible, no matter the situation.”

    am i allow to say this? yuzuki this is so stupid. if you’re going, you should have a plan or you’ll be a burden again. dont tell me you’re going to be in the middle of the battlefield and then what? you’ll see people getting killed.

    KENSHIN]: “I see. I shall tell you one thing then… Do not do the impossible, no matter the situation
    [YUZUKI]: “I won’t do anything unreasonable. However… if I can help everyone then I’ll do anything. Please let me do that…!”

    instead of the word impossible, kenshin should said dont do anything stupid. why am i having a jumping off cliff flashback in usuegi route? i like the yuzuki in other route, but in this route… i feel yuzuki is a princess in distress…

      I think it’s just assumed she’s going to be at the back lines rather than being sent all the way back to the castle or hiding away in the main camp and being out of the battle completely. Like she’s not going to be seeing any action, clearly, but she’ll be close enough for them to use her blood or for her to do something. It’s a bit hard for her to come up with a plan when she has no experience in war at all LOL so I’m sure the commanders will accommodate her, knowing that she’s coming (which she just needed to express).

      LOL he does imply that a little (or if you want to you could read it that way). In the three sentences, following that, they use the same words actually. He literally tells her 無理をするな like “don’t do anything unreasonable/overdo it/push yourself too hard” but I was playing around with words and translator liberty here |D.
