SNB Mouri ~ 光盟 Chapter 2.1 ~

Chapter 2: The Tip of the Blade

The war began at last with the dawning of the night. The commanders of each army attacked Motonari and the others one after another.

In order to fight fire with fire, Motonari and the others unsheathed their swords…

Chapter 2.1

Suddenly, a blade was pressed to my neck and I was driven into a desperate crisis.

[YUZUKI]: (What do I do… My mouth is covered and I can’t make a sound…!)

[YUZUKI]: (At this rate, I’ll be killed—)

[TAKAKAGE]: “… Haah. Now do you understand just how thoughtless you acted?”

[YUZUKI]: (Huh? This voice…)

I was released and when I turned around to the owner of the voice—

[YUZUKI]: “T-Takakage-san!”

[IMARI]: “Wha!?”

[TAKAKAGE]: “You were told by Motonari-sama to stay in the castle, weren’t you?”

[YUZUKI]: “Y-yes, but—“

Maybe my conversation with Takakage-san entered their ears, but I was also noticed by Motonari-san and the others—

[TAKAMOTO]: “Huh, why are you here…?”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m sorry… I couldn’t help but worry about everyone…”

[TERUMOTO]: “Did you possibly come all this way with just yourself and Imari?”

[YUZUKI]: “I mean, I didn’t think I should get someone in the castle to come with me…”

[MOTOHARU]: “What were you thinking!? Even the road to this point isn’t guaranteed to be safe.”

[MOTOHARU]: “Do you know just how much trouble your wilful actions will cause to everyone around you—“

[IMARI]: “YOU’RE WRONG!”

[IMARI]: “She was worried for everyone and—!”

[YUZUKI]: “Imari-kun…”

[MOTOHARU]: “Hah… you don’t seem to understand the situation at all.”

[MOTOHARU]: “Currently, there’s a gathering of multiple armies close to Mouri lands. They’re tough enemies, different from yakuma.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Yep yep, earlier if it hadn’t been you then I would have mercilessly cut them down.”

[YUZUKI]: (Motoharu-san and Takakage-san are right. I know me being here might cause trouble…)

[YUZUKI]: (But, even still, I can’t go back right here—)

I squeezed my hand into a fist, so as not to lose heart, and opened my mouth.

[YUZUKI]: “I’m well-aware that everyone’s strong.”

[YUZUKI]: “But I’ve also seen everyone hurt.”

[YUZUKI]: “Just in case, if my blood is here, then I believe I can help everyone.”

[YUZUKI]: “I may be a hindrance, but please I’m begging everyone to let me stay.”

Seeing me lower my head and request this, Motonari-san and the others were silent for a while.

The first one to break the silence was Motonari-san.

[MOTONARI]: “… Alright.”

[MOTONARI]: “I asked you to remain behind at the castle in order to guarantee your safety, but conversely it appears I have made you concerned.”

[MOTONARI]: “We will respect your will, princess.”

[YUZUKI]: “Motonari-san… thank you so much.”

[TERUMOTO]: “I’ll protect you, so don’t worry!”

[YUZUKI]: “Thank you, Terumoto-kun.”

[TAKAMOTO]: “Please let me know right away if anything happens. You absolutely must not push yourself too hard.”

[MOTOHARU]: “… Heh, I’m really astonished by your boldness.”

[TAKAKAGE]: “Absolutely. This war is something where even normal soldiers would want to run.”

[YUZUKI]: “If I can help everyone then I’ll do my best!”

[MOTONARI]: “Haha, it’s encouraging to hear that.”

[MOTONARI]: “However, promise me one thing. You must never act alone. You can keep just this promise, yes?”

[YUZUKI]: “Yes, I understand.”

[IMARI]: “I’m glad you got your feelings across.”

[YUZUKI]: “Yeah! Thank you too, Imari-kun.”

[YUZUKI]: (I got accepted by Motonari-san and the others—. I’ll work hard so that I can be of use to everyone!)

Motonari-san, who smiled gently at me, collected his expression and gave orders to everyone.

[MOTONARI]: “Once dawn breaks, the war will begin.”

[MOTONARI]: “Until I give the signal, each person is to stand by at their position.”

[THE FOUR]: “Yes, my lord!”

    It’s really is Takakage, well better than enemies lol 😂
    2nd to the least heroine version I like in each army my no. 1 is Toyotomi heroine 👍 I just don’t like headstrong heroine.

      ;w; OH NO I actually really like the heroines for the ruthless armies, because she has to somehow come to terms with that and also manage her own self (aka. understanding schemes with Masamune, and being just as a sneaky as Hideyoshi) haha.

      Haha, if it wasn’t Takakage then the timeline in the Mouri army would be really wonky.

        Oops…. Sorry, I mean I love the Toyotomi’s the most because she’s no fool and can’t easily fall in monkey boy’s tricks. 😀

    Don’t worry I was never a big fan of Sanada’s Route either (I’m sorry Yukimura)

    Actually I entirely forgot about Date’s heroine my bad!! Lol but Yuzuki in that route is also really refreshing because eventually she learns to analyze the situation and even catch on to the schemes Masamune plans despite being left in the dark.

    No matter how many anime adaptations I watch I still can’t help but bang my forehead against a wall. Some are pretty good but a fair amount of reverse harems animes are like this. Rip

    [TERUMOTO]: “I’ll protect you, so don’t worry!”

    i wonder if they will still go to sanada. or sanada will come to them? since in sanada’s route, terumoto and takamoto were there. i also wonder if anyone anyone in mouri will got injured or they successfully injured someone in the other armies.

      SNB does a good job in unifying all the routes whenever they’re interacting, so I’d say that things are gonna follow pretty much like what we’ve seen in all the other armies except this time from Mouri perspective. So, we’re probably gonna see each of the commanders in their positions dealing with the people.

      But good question about if someone will get hurt in Mouri, hm…

    To be honest I personally like Yuzuki the best in the Mouri route. Despite always being pampered by Motonari, when it comes down to it she has a really strong attitude. She is also quite gutsy in the Takeda route but I feel that in the Mouri Route (especially this chapter) her willpower really shines through. She expresses her feelings slightly more confidently which is quite enjoyable considering the really bland characters you see quite often. However, I am quite disappointed in how she is portrayed in the anime adaptation. They really didn’t do her justice. The entire time she just watches the hawt guys and says nothing more than “…umm…” 😂 no hate towards the anime but at least give our beloved child some more lines lol. Then again this happens with a lot of reverse harem animes. *sigh* At least they had the decency to give her eyes.

      I wonder if that’s because Mouri’s heroine needs to be able to stand up against Takakage LOL giving her that stronger attitude. I think all versions bring interesting things to the table, but admittedly my least favorite might be Sanada’s heroine… but then again I’m not a fan of Sanada’s story in general, oops.

      The Oda heroine is really strong too imo to have to deal with Nobunaga’s impressive aura, but unfortunately we don’t get to see her do much since Nobunaga has everything under control and rarely shares his plans with her /o\. Takeda’s heroine slowly becoming an impressive herbalist is cool since none of the other heroines seem to learn a specialized skill.

      I think my favorite might have to be Date’s heroine though :’D not only is Date unique in being a small army, meaning she’s usually taken right into the middle of things (since they don’t have enough people to guard her) but she also has to deal with Masamune’s ruthlessness and proclivity in using any means to get what he wants.

      Haha, I’ve already given up and accepted the fact that almost all anime adaptations of otome games are just gonna be introductions to the source material and I shouldn’t expect more :’).
