SNB Takeda ~ 光盟 Chapter 2.2 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 2: Walking on Eggshells

Shingen and the others advanced while cutting down the enemy soldiers. Exchanging a bout with Hideyoshi and the others, they moved forward aiming to join up with the forces of their allies.

There the figure of a single man appeared…

Chapter 2.2

[YUZUKI]: (… I wonder if Shingen-san and the others are alright.)

Left behind together with Masatoyo-san and Masanobu-san, I looked out in the direction Shingen-san and the others advanced, cutting through the vanguard.

[YUZUKI]: (Shingen-san, Nobuharu-san, and Masakage-kun are really strong. I believe they’ll win no matter who their opponent is, but…)

Even though this was a place with distance from the front lines, I could hear the sounds of shouts and attacks here and there and it conveyed the intensity of the war.

The situation of the war came to my mind even when I didn’t want it to and in the moment when my worries spread slowly through my heart—


[YUZUKI]: “…!”

Hearing a nearby soldier scream, I shrunk my body in. When I did that, a warm and large hand landed on my shoulder with a pat.

[MASATOYO]: “Are you alright?”

[YUZUKI]: “Masatoyo-san…”

[MASATOYO]: “The noises are overwhelming, so it can be scary, can’t it. If you’re anxious, why don’t we wait further in?”

[YUZUKI]: “No… I’m fine. I want to wait here for Shingen-san and the others…”

If I was in this place, which was close to the entrance of the camp, then I could immediately greet Shingen-san and the others when they returned.

[YUZUKI]: (Although I’m also worried about leaving this place where I saw off Shingen-san and the others…)

[MASANOBU]: “You don’t need to worry about Shingen-sama and the others. I’m sure they’ll return home unharmed.”

[YUZUKI]: “… You’re right. There’s no way Shingen-san and the others will lose.”

It’ll be okay. It’ll be okay. I prayed in my heart as if telling myself this countless times.

[YUZUKI]: (Please, everyone be safe…)

The battle was extremely fierce.

Three armies clashed against three armies. Each held onto their pride and a battle unfolded where neither one would withdraw.

Shingen led the Takeda army and, along with the Uesugi army, headed straight for the enemy’s allied forces.

[MASAKAGE]: “… Come to think of it, what happened to the Sanada army? It looked like they took a different route on the way.”

[SHINGEN]: “Yeah, the Sanada army is acting separately to prepare for ambushes.”

[NOBUHARU]: “They have ninjas there so it suits them. Besides—“

Nobuharu cast his gaze to the front. There in front was the sight of the enemy’s allied soldiers attacking Shingen and the others.

[NOBUHARU]: “If things are just a little loose then it means we can go wild to our heart’s content!”

[NOBUHARU]: “Let’s go!”

[MASAKAGE]: “Yessir! I’ll be following!”

[NOBUHARU]: “—Haaaaagh!!”

Nobuharu’s one attack scattered all the enemy soldiers that came onrushing.

[NOBUHARU]: “Fuhahaha! Keep on coming at me!”

That heroic and precise swordsmanship steadily knocked down the enemies.

Masakage also made use of his dual blades and cut down enemies one after another.

[MASAKAGE]: “Nobuharu-san! Let’s see which one of us can take down more enemies!”

[NOBUHARU]: “Alright! I’ll accept your challenge!”

[SHINGEN]: “Those two look like they’re in a good condition…”

[SHINGEN]: (Kenshin and his men have separated to chase after the Oda army, so our military strength has decreased a little… but this shouldn’t be a problem.)

Shingen’s eyes, as he raised his sword so as not to fall behind the other two who were cutting open a path, suddenly seized upon a strange group.

[SHINGEN]: (… That’s—)

Sanada army’s Kamanosuke was in the lead and rushing ferociously towards the Oda army with Sasuke and Saizou.

[NOBUHARU]: “The vanguard is Kamanosuke…? He’s acting differently from usual…”

[SHINGEN]: “Looks like the progress of the war is changing every second. There’s no time for us to relax and we should hurry forward too.”

The moment Shingen was about to order the Takeda army to advance Masakage abruptly pointed at a corner of the battlefield.

[MASAKAGE]: “Shingen-sama, look. Over there…!”

[SHINGEN]: “… Hm? That’s—!”

    Ugh, in the end I still can’t be prepared while read the Uesugi one T^T Maybe in this one I can’t be prepared too…

    Okay back to topic. So Masanobu and Masatoyo become vanguard (plus guarding Yuzuki) while the rest go to war. Honestly I’m very happy since Masanobu with me, but in this case… Yep, I’m not ready…

    Thank you for your hard works…!!

      So far… it’s still going good :’)) we didn’t hear much about Takeda, Sanada, or Date from the other chapters so I have no idea what to expect.

      Oh no, Masanobu and Masatoyo are in the rearguard (or even main camp really). The vanguard is for people at the front line and starting everything, so that’d be Shingen, Masakage, and Nobuharu in this case.

    It’s really strange for Kamanosuke to be the vanguard, I wonder what happened? Are they racing for time or something happened good like Boss coming back?

      Oh my god, I thought this was such a nice thing for them to bring up, especially in another route. Because, if you remember, Kamanosuke has some kinda thing for Oda and the MC heard him mutter something about killing Oda in Sanada’s route. So… I think Kamanosuke completely flipped his shit here and is going after Oda in the lead (compounded by Nobuyuki being with Oda… unless this is where he switched sides again).

    so masatoyo and masanobu (bodyguards?) with yuzuki. while shingen, nobuharu and masakage is far away and about to meet hideyoshi soon. there is a glimpse from sanada

    and date is nowhere to be seen in any chapters so far.

      I’m really surprised by how quiet Date is being, but then again we have no idea what’s been going on with Sanada until now so… Date and Sanada are probably duking it out with each other.
