Chapter 2: Battlefield of Betrayals

The one who visited the Oda army was Sanada Nobuyuki of the Sanada army.

Amid everyone’s vigilance, Nobuyuki said unexpected words. At the same time, the war begins to move…

Chapter 2.4

[NOBUNAGA]: “……”

[KENSHIN]: “……”

Both Nobunaga and Kenshin pulled out their swords and slowly measured their distance.

[NOBUNAGA]: “……”

[KENSHIN]: “……”

The surrounding noises, voices, and sounds of battle seemed to move far away and it was only in this space, as the two glared at each other, that was dominated by silence.

However, even that could not continue forever.

[KENSHIN]: “Haaah!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “Hmph!”

Nobunaga sidestepped Kenshin’s single attack, when he closed the distance first, and seized this chance to aim for Kenshin’s throat.

[NOBUNAGA]: “Hah!”

But Kenshin seemed to have predicted that and lightly jumped back, dodging the tip.

[NOBUNAGA]: (Like I thought, this extent will be dodged. In that case—)

Kenshin held up his sword again and Nobunaga also did the same in response. In that moment, he dared to create a small gap.

[NOBUNAGA]: (… Come jumping once more.)

[KENSHIN]: “Hrah!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “… Ngh!”

Nobunaga caught the heavy blow that was repeated and then—

[KENSHIN]: “Gugh…!”

Although Kenshin quickly escaped the line of sight the instant Nobunaga pulled out his gun, the bullet grazed his side and his face twisted.

Kenshin guarded his injury while being wary of Nobunaga, but sometimes he seemed to be concerned in the direction of the plains.

[NOBUNAGA]: (It appears he is quite worried about the allied Sanada army.)

[NOBUNAGA]: “Was Sanada Nobuyuki your instigation?”

[KENSHIN]: “… What?”

[NOBUNAGA]: (From that reaction, he isn’t some spy by their hands, I see. However…)

[RANMARU]: “Nobunaga-sama! Nobuyuki seems to have betrayed us!”

[NOBUNAGA]: “… I know.”

[KENSHIN]: “!! Knowing he would betray you, why did you accept Nobuyuki…”

[NOBUNAGA]: “I thought he would be useful to a small extent, nothing more.”

[KENSHIN]: “So that ruthlessness is what makes you the Great Demon King of the Sixth Heaven.”

The moment Kenshin fell into a sword stance— their surroundings were enveloped in an abnormal stir, unlike what it was up to now.

[RANMARU]: “Wha… what is that.”

[KAGEIE]: “—KAGEKATSU-SAMA!!”

[KENSHIN]: “!?”

Kenshin was clearly shaken by that sharp and loud voice.

[KENSHIN]: “… Kagekatsu.”

[RANMARU]: “Ah…! Do we chase!?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “No need. More importantly…”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “… Oh, there he is, there he is.”

[RANMARU]: “Hideyoshi! And Toshiie!?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Looks like it’s a bit of a bad situation.”

[NOBUNAGA]: (He went out of his way to convene here. Like I thought—)

[NOBUNAGA]: “… The Mouri army.”

[NOBUNAGA]: (I suspected they may come, but…)

Hideyoshi nodded at Nobunaga’s words and subsequently suggested a common front.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Until an organized counterattack is arranged, we’ll have to endure… Huh!?”

[NOBUNAGA]: “… It appears we do not have the time to talk leisurely.”

Nobunaga sensed a presence deep in the woods and reflexively stood ready. The moment he did, there stood—

[NOBUNAGA]: “You…”

    So much has happened!
    What could possible Nobuyuki learn about the Oda army, with the little time he was there? I don’t see the point. (Of course, I’m really bad at strategy.)

    And that “You…” at the end. Could it be Nobuyuki coming back? Or maybe Shingen… coming to help Kenshin…

      RIGHT? SAME. I mean I can’t imagine the three armies – Oda, Toyotomi, Date – would have given him any accurate information during their meeting or really trusted him. Is he there just to find out that they’re going to fight the armies in a certain way? LOL so pointless… But maybe we’ll find out in Sanada army what he learned and then realize he’s a genius hjsjhjgh.

      Ehehehe, dun dun dun!!

    Although I kind of expected Nobunaga to throw chivalry out the window, I’m still hurt by this. Lmao IT’S NOT FAIR TO USE YOUR GUN, NOBUNAGA.
    And Kenshin, if you knew Nobunaga was ruthless with that title, you really ought to expect he would pull a stunt like that! Also, you shouldn’t turn your back in the middle of battle! Don’t go running off after your comrades when you haven’t even properly disengage!!!!

    O A O;;;;;

      I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING AT THIS SCENE because it’s so abrupt and it does make you go like “Hey, wait a minute, that’s cheating??” But at the same time, Kenshin is SO cool to immediately dodge the bullet when he sees the gun and only gets grazed.

      I love how this sets up so many things like what’s going to happen in Toyotomi and how Uesugi is clearly going to have a problem with Kagekatsu…

    looks like the mouri did launch an ambush on them. im guessing the one in the woods might be yuzuki.
