SNB Sanada ~ 光盟 Chapter 2.5 ~

Posted on Updated on

Chapter 2: Resolve, the Battle for our Friends!

The Sanada army threw itself onto the battlefield, lacking Nobuyuki. They continued to fight while feeling somewhat clumsy.

The person who appeared in front of them like that was…

Chapter 2.5

[SAIZOU]: “It appears meritorious gains have appeared by themselves. I look forward to telling that girl about my acts of heroism.”

Despite the disadvantageous situation with numbers, Saizou showed a composed attitude.

[SAIZOU]: “Heh, you two have no fortune. Of all people, you met a genius like me…”

[SAIZOU]: “It’s clear the loss will be with you. Just regret your bad luck.”

[TAKAMOTO]: “… Certainly, it is regrettable to have met you because I do not like to fight much…”

[SAIZOU]: “What…?”

Takamoto, while closing in the distance between him and Saizou with surety, spoke with an expression that gave off a feeling of sorrow.

[TAKAMOTO]: “I think this is futile, but I have a request. I don’t want to fight you if that is possible… Could I ask you to retreat like this without doing anything?”

[SAIZOU]: “Both of us know that I cannot do that, no?”

[SAIZOU]: (He has strong, determined eyes in spite of being an enemy…)

[SAIZOU]: “Or… are you intimidated in front of my beautiful strength?”

[TERUMOTO]: “Let me tell you…! YAAAH!”

Terumoto, who jumped forward forcefully, closed the distance in a blink towards Saizou.

[SAIZOU]: “Too naive! Ninja art… Earth Release, Rock Spear!”

Countless sharp, pointed rocks sprung from the ground and knocked away Terumoto’s small body.


[TAKAMOTO]: “Terumoto!”

[TERUMOTO]: “Ugh… gugh…”

[SAIZOU]: “Those were some nice movements, but they were too direct.”

[SAIZOU]: “However, to still be conscious after receiving my technique… I suppose it is to be expected of an oni. But you cannot fight anymore with those wounds.”

[SAIZOU]: “Now, it’s just you.”

The moment it looked like Saizou’s form disappeared, in the next instant, he appeared in front of Takamoto and was swinging down his weapon.

However, Takamoto managed to just barely dodge it.

[TAKAMOTO]: “Kgh…! Haah!”

[SAIZOU]: “!? Although you said you dislike fighting, that swordsmanship isn’t something I can be careless about. However…!”

[SAIZOU]: “Ninja art… Dance of the Four Seasons Shuriken!”

[TAKAMOTO]: “Kugh…!”

[SAIZOU]: “You’re open—!”

Maybe Takamoto faltered at the fluttering shuriken, but he was unable to block Saizou’s attack.

However, the moment he attacked, Saizou also received a counter attack from Takamoto.

[TAKAMOTO]: “Ugugh…!”

[SAIZOU]: “Kgh… that was dangerous…! But this is the en—“

The insant Saizou tried to deliver the finishing blow at Takamoto—


[SAIZOU]: “Wha…!”

Terumoto’s weapon stabbed deeply into Saizou’s body.

[TERUMOTO]: “I am fighting for Mouri too…!”

[SAIZOU]: “Gugh… ah…!”

Saizou crumbled to his knees and then fell face down.

[TERUMOTO]: “Haa… hah…! Takamoto-sama!”

[TAKAMOTO]: “Terumoto… I’m glad you’re safe. You saved me, thank you.”

[TERUMOTO]: “No, I just acted according to your plan, Takamoto-sama.”

[TAKAMOTO]: “Yes… it was a good act.”

[TAKAMOTO]: “… Our objective is accomplished, so let us report to Motonari-sama.”

[TERUMOTO]: “Yes!”

[SASUKE]: “…-ey, hey! Saizou! Where’d you go!?”

[TERUMOTO]: “—!! Takamoto-sama, please grab onto my shoulder!”

[TAKAMOTO]: “I’m sorry… and thank you, Terumoto.”


Sasuke ran over to the collapsed Saizou and reflexively raised his voice at the large amount of blood there.

[SASUKE]: “Sa… Saizou!?”

[SAIZOU]: “Ah… ugh…”

[SASUKE]: “H-hey, this ain’t true, right!? What happened!? Saizou, hold on!”

[SAIZOU]: “… I’m… I’m a big idiot too…”

[SAIZOU]: “Like this, I’ll… make her sad too… What a failure… this isn’t… beauti… ful…”

Saizou’s breath was feeble as he muttered but then, eventually, his eyes closed and he stopped moving.

[SASUKE]: “Sa… Saizou…? S-stop it… this isn’t true, right!? Hey, Saizou!? SAIZOU!!”

Even though Sasuke called out his name continuously, Saizou did not respond to that—

    I expected for Saizou to get beaten but not almost left to die!

    It would be a long way before we come back to Sanada to see what happened to Saizou. =(
    I’ guessing every army will have at least one wounded badly…. And they will make us hang in with nails and teeth to see if Yuzuki will save them.

      Now pretty much someone from every army is on the verge of death :’)) wanna take bets on who it’s gonna be for Date? I’m guessing Shigezane, but I’d like to see Kojuurou in a tight spot for once… (oops, making I shouldn’t be cursing him like this).

      I feel like she HAS to save them, but uh I’ve seen the synopsis for Oda’s 3rd chapter and it was pretty eyebrow raising, eheheh. We’re close though!! Hopefully, by the time I get around to the 3rd chapter they’ll complete the entire thing. Right now every army only has Chapters 3.4 out actually. I’m so close to catching up to the latest releases, oof.

        I agree with you about Kojuurou. Not because I dislike him, but because he’s too cool to be good.
        How often is released each chapter? Please tell me we won’t have to wait months for Chapters 4.*

        Ilinox responded:

        LOL, precisely, I want to see Kojuurou in a pinch for once.

        They release one part for two armies every week on Wednesday. So July 3rd was 3.4 for Sanada and Date! This week is gonna be Mouri by itself. Then July 17th will be 3.5 for Oda and Toyotomi, completing the entirety of Chapter 3.

    This day, I realize how nice Saizo is…. I managed to turn a blind eye to his narcissism before he got stab by Takamoto….. I have such a stone heart…… And by the way, in this line ” Takamoto’s weapon stabbed deeply into Saizou’s body.” Terumoto distract Saizo and Takamoto stab him?

    I’m happy that I got the limited Nobunaga card in the new gotcha and finally completed the 5 Nobunagas but completed Kenshin first without noticing lol 😂 But I’m so salty about not getting Mitsubishi -_-

      Oh no, it was Terumoto who stabbed Saizou. If I’m not careful it’s way too easy to mix their names up because they look so similar, oops.

      GASP!! I’m so jealous, haha, but I’ve long accepted that I’m cursed to never get Kagero art cards… I ended up with a 4* Takakage instead :’)) the big bully.
