SNB Date ~ 光盟 Chapter 2.5 ~

Chapter 2: The Flash of an Assassin’s Blade—

Sanada Nobuyuki of the Sanada army changed sides… Masamune and the others doubted those words while they used the chaos of the war to sneak towards the Mouri army.

However, the person who greeted them there was…!?

Chapter 2.5

[YUZUKI]: “Keeping going, you mean…”

[MASAMUNE]: “Yes, we’re going to break into Mouri lands.”

[MASAMUNE]: “… Because you two dealt with the enemies, I was able to make sure of the situation.”

[MASAMUNE]: “—The ones chasing us are the Mouri army.”

.[KOJUUROU]: “Masamune… where’s your evidence for that?”

[MASAMUNE]: “Those men didn’t battle with just us, the Date army, but also the soldiers of the Sanada army.”

[MASAMUNE]: “Soldiers who are not a part of either coalition in this situation… The possibility of them being the Mouri army is extremely high.”

[KOJUUROU]: “For the Mouri army to appear in these circumstances…”

[KOJUUROU]: “Considering the scale of Mouri territory, there must still be soldiers there. Furthermore, if a commander were to show… we’ll be greatly outnumbered.”

[MASAMUNE]: “There’s no problem with respect to that.”

[KOJUUROU]: “No problem? Just how exactly are you going to oppose the Mouri army—“

[MASAMUNE]: “We don’t need to oppose them is what I’m saying.”

[MASAMUNE]: “That their army appeared on the battlefield means that the defense of their territory has thinned.”

[MASAMUNE]: “During the time the Mouri army is battling people apart from us, we’re going to slip in—“

[MASAMUNE]: “First, we’re going to shake off those chasing us all at once!”

 

[KOJUUROU]: “We’ve pulled away from the majority of the enemy, but—“

When I turned around I could see several soldiers that looked like the Mouri army chasing after us.

[SHIGEZANE]: “Those guys are stubborn! Hey, Masamune, wouldn’t it be quicker to defeat them? Give me a moment!”

[KOJUUROU]: “Shigezane, don’t do anything reckless!”

Shigezane-san casually ignored Kojuurou-san’s words and went towards the enemy soldiers.

[SHIGEZANE]: “Haaaaaah!”

[SHIGEZANE]: “An easy win— c’mon, let’s go again! I’ll knock you all down like this!”

In that instant— the moment it looked like Shigezane-san’s upper body swayed, in the next moment, he tumbled down from his horse.

[KOJUUROU]: “Shigezane, what’s wrong…!?”

Before Kojuurou-san could try and rush over, someone appeared from behind Shigezane-san’s horse.

[???]: “…… Heh.”

[KOJUUROU]: “—Dodge! Shigezane!!”

We weren’t able to tell whether he heard Kojuurou-san’s voice or not. The reason why was because—

[???]: “—First, one.”

[SHIGEZANE]: “Gugh… ugh.”

The man who appeared swung his blade and easily stabbed Shigezane-san.

[KOJUUROU]: “SHIGEZANE!”

[MASAMUNE]: “……!”

[???]: “Oh? That’s strange. I heard the Date army was an interesting opponent that used clever schemes… you’re surprisingly boring.”

The enemy said that, looking bored from the depths of his being, and prodded Shigezane-san with his foot while he sighed.

[KOJUUROU]: “You…!”

[???]: “Oh my… It’s not in my character to fight fair and square face-to-face.”

He said that in a light tone, as if he was unaware of this life-and-death exchange, and nimbly jumped back.

[KOJUUROU]: “Kgh… how dare you do that to Shigezane…!”

The moment Kojuurou-san tried to raise his blade Masamune-san stopped him with one hand.

[MASAMUNE]: “… Who are you?”

[TAKAKAGE]: “I am Kobayakawa Takakage of the Mouri army. Remember that, the considerate-minded Date Masamune.”

Leaving those words behind, the commander called Kobayakawa Takakage suddenly ran off to somewhere.

[YUZUKI]: (That was… one of the commanders of the Mouri army…)

[MASAMUNE]: “Shigezane…?”

When I turned around to the hoarse voice I saw Masamune-san’s lips trembling minutely and with a pale face.

      I… have to admit Takakage was SO cool here. How he appears from behind Shigezane’s horse to Masamune, Kojuurou, and the MC and then is just like “One down”.

      Gods, I have to admit that Takakage’s appearance and whole scene was SO brutal and good. I love how he just nonchalantly wrecked the Date army :’)).

    oh it was takakage?

    i knew it Shigezane will be the one who got injured in this chapter.

    [???]: “Oh my… It’s not in my character to fight fair and square face-to-face.”
    i’ll rather have takakage in mouri route.

      I was really hoping it’d be Kojuurou, oops, but it might hurt more for Masamune because Shigezane is his cousin… yikes. Haha, everyone is really merciless in other routes, huh.
