Chapter 2: In These Eventful and Critical Times

The war began at last. In the middle of the coalitions clashing, Kenshin confronted Nobunaga.

In a tense atmosphere, a battle unfolded between the two. However, bad news was brought there…

Chapter 2.3

[KAGEIE]: “DRAAAAAGH!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “If you think lightly of us that will be a problem. Hah!”

The swords of Kageie and Kagemochi swung down again and again.

[KAGEIE]: “ORAAAAGH!”

[KAGEIE]: “Heh, I won’t be defeated at this level.”

[KAGEIE]: “If you don’t want to die then hurry up and open a path— HRAGH!!”

Kageie attacked with overwhelming power while, on the other hand, Kagemochi cut down enemy soldiers in succession with a bewitching smile.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Haa!”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Haha, finished already? You won’t stop us with that degree of strength.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Well, no matter the opponent, I will be protecting Kenshin-sama.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Now, who shall be next?”

Kenshin aimed for the place Nobunaga would be while the two held back a line of soldiers, but—

[???]: “DORAAAAH!”

[KENSHIN]: “—!?”

Kenshin blocked an attack that was unleashed from the side within a hair’s breadth and created some distance.

[???]: “Well, it wouldn’t be interesting if that didn’t happen!”

[KENSHIN]: “You are…”

[KATSUIE]: “I’m Shibata Katsuie! I’m gonna be your opponent.”

[KENSHIN]: “……”

[KATSUIE]: “I’m not gonna letcha go to Nobunaga-sama!”

[KENSHIN]: “I see… then I will defeat you.”

[KATSUIE]: “Ha! If you can do that I’d like to see you try!!”

[KATSUIE]: “Ngh!”

[KENSHIN]: “Kageie—“

[KAGEIE]: “… I won’t let you touch Kenshin-sama.”

[KAGEIE]: “Your opponent is me! Hragh!!”

[KATSUIE]: “Kgh… bastard…”

[KAGEIE]: “Someone like you isn’t fit to be Kenshin-sama’s opponent!”

[KATSUIE]: “What’d you say…?”

[KAGEIE]: “Kenshin-sama! I will take this on! Now’s your chance!”

[KENSHIN]: “Aa, I leave this to you.”

[KATSUIE]: “Like I’m gonna let you go— grgh!”

[KAGEIE]: “Ggh! I already said that your opponent is me!”

[KATSUIE]: “… Hah, interesting. I’ll cut down shit like you right away.”

[KATSUIE]: “Don’t regret this!”

Sparks scattered from the blades that crossed each other, and Kageie and Katsuie’s intense exchange of blows continued.

[KAGEIE]: “… What, is that all? Then I’ll be going next! HAAGH!”

[KATSUIE]: “Ngh! Don’t think it ends here!”

[KATSUIE]: “DRAAAGH!”

 

Kenshin, with Kageie and the others’ voices at his back, spurred his horse on to Nobunaga.

[KENSHIN]: “—Wait for me, Oda Nobunaga.”

    Ilinox, about what you commented in the previous chapter:
    I don’t think that because Kagemochi is smiling here it means that he is being particularly cruel at the moment… I mean, Nobuharu also enjoys being in battle and he is always laughing.

    I think Kagemochi’s dark side is better displayed in situations that are more personal, like his bullying. Because he analyzes the other person and then says or does exactly what he think will annoy or hurt the most.

      Oh yeah, I don’t think he’s going out of his way to be cruel but, hm, there’s just a darker edge that comes off in his taunts to me + his smile compared to Masakage and Nobuharu who, like the others in Takeda mentioned, just purely and innocently enjoy fighting. I feel like his dark side, where he can analyze the weakness of another person, and explicitly mock that is being shown in the battlefield too |D. (Not that it’s bad or anything, because I love my dark men—).

      Not just a smile but a bewitching smile— haha. Fun fact, the adjective they used to describe his smile is one they always use for Nobunaga too :’)) dangerous men only adjective.

      Haha, oopsies, spoilers for what’s going to happen |D I’m ahead in translations so I could read through Chapter 2.5 even though we’re only at Chapter 2.3 here still. Aw, you didn’t feel anything for Katsuie or Toshiie being attacked and nearly killed!? Haha, jkjk.

        I also feel bad for them too. but i tend to be emotional on 1) usuegi route 2) takeda route 3) date route [this is how i ranked them. just my opinion]
