SNB Date ~ 光盟 Chapter 1.5 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 1: Causing Confusion, the Progress of the War—

Masamune and his group formed an alliance with the Oda army and Toyotomi army, but it was hard to say that the atmosphere of the three armies was calm as they headed towards Mouri territory.

At that time, a certain piece of news, which Masamune wished for, arrived…

Chapter 1.5

[SHIGEZANE]: “Hey, come on and tell us the reason.”

Masamune-san led us to the Oda army’s encampment without any explanation.

Maybe the Oda soldiers were surprised at their abrupt visitors too, because I heard a stir among them.

[MASAMUNE]: “… Hn.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Masamune, hey! What in the world happened?”

[KOJUUROU]: “Masamune… I won’t say schemes are bad, but this situation in particular is unwise.”

[KOJUUROU]: “If we turn the Oda army into our enemy then the Toyotomi army will become one as well. There’s nothing to be had for us.”

[KOJUUROU]: “Once that’s the case, the Date army might have to take on five armies alone.”

[KOJUUROU]: “If we’re surrounded in this situation… that would be the end.”

[MASAMUNE]: “… Relax, it isn’t a clever scheme this time.”

Masamune-san’s profile as he said that released a sharp atmosphere and that worried me more than it reassured me.

Then Masamune-san turned his gaze to me.

[MASAMUNE]: “… Certainly, it can be said that the Date army uses schemes, but it’s not like trickery is under our exclusive use.”

[MASAMUNE]: “It’s possible for any enemy to use a clever trick. We need to take great care not to be tricked.”

[YUZUKI]: (… Why is he saying that to me?)

[???]: “… Will I be brought up in the war council after this?”

[???]: “… I understand. Until then I will keep quiet.”

[YUZUKI]: (… Huh? This voice…)

That voice, which was carried on the wind, was certainly one I heard before.

[MASAMUNE]: “… There he is.”

When I strained my eyes to the end of Masamune’s sight I saw a figure that shouldn’t have been here.

Focusing my eyes even more, it was—

[SHIGEZANE]: “Wha—!? Why’s that guy here…?”

[KOJUUROU]: “He is conversing normally with an Oda soldier… It doesn’t seem like he’s an assassin.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Heh… so we weren’t the only ones who changed their allies.”

What Masamune-san said meant— the person at the end of our gaze was a “traitor”.

[YUZUKI]: (A traitor… Really…?)

The point our line of sight ended on was the older brother of the Sanada army’s general—

Sanada Nobuyuki.

    huh? he was bring to date army? but he met nobunaga w/ yuzuki on oda’s route shouldnt he be in oda army?

    anyway i check the real history, turns out Nobuyuki allied with Ieyasu and Yukimura allied with Toyotomi. i dont even know if i read the right reference since i only use google.

      No, the Date army went over to the Oda army because Masamune must have received news about Nobuyuki being seen escorted into Oda.

    Hmmmm I’m a bit disappointed that there wasn’t as much romance in this chapter like the other army’s chapter yet at the same time I really enjoyed chapter 1 of season 2 as a whole due to the fact that there are a lot more details about what’s going on and their plans along with their reasoning behind their actions. In the Date army especially, they really make sure to elaborate on their strategies which is quite interesting to read because most of the other armies kinda leave Yuzuki in the dark in a sense. Not that I don’t love the other armies but I particularly love the Date army (along with the Oda Army ;) Dont worry Nobunaga chu still got a place in my <3) because of their sneaky plans and how you get to see them unfold. It’s pretty amazing how they are one of the smallest armies yet they have the biggest influence in this warring state of time and has literally moved the other armies like they are pawns 😂.

      Ooh, yeah, I was thinking about that too while going through Date’s chapters. Date has less characters (just 3!) so it’s easier for them to give all the characters a spotlight and develop them instead of having to juggle 5 like the other armies. So I wonder if that’s why they get more plot-heavy chapters because when they ARE developing character relationships they won’t need as many chapters |D.

      OH MAN YEAH! Going through Oda/Toyotomi chapters about them musing on Date’s movements (and each other) made me realize just how many strings Date pulled. He sent the Mouri seal case to Uesugi, but then leaked this information to Takeda. Then he showed Oda how Uesugi and Takeda joined together to encourage Oda to accept Date and presently keep an alliance with Toyotomi. UGH, sneaky sneaky.
