Chapter 3: A Dilemma, An Unshakeable Will!

The battlefield was extremely chaotic due to the appearance of the Mouri army. During this, Kamanosuke returned together with Nobuyuki-san, who should have left the army. In the brief joy at their return, a seriously wounded Saizou was carried in…

Chapter 3.5

Crossing the frame of friend and foe, all the commanders in the area fought the yakuma while cooperating.

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… Kgh! These guys are stubborn…!”

[YUZUKI]: (Kamanosuke-kun and everyone are struggling… The yakuma numbers are definitely decreasing, but…)

It seemed like their opponents were stronger than normal yakuma and so everyone wasn’t able to give a decisive blow.

[HANBEE]: “Haa… we’re making no progress at this rate… Everyone, could I have some of your time?”

What Toyotomi army’s commander— Takenaka Hanbee-san proposed was for everyone to coordinate together and annihilate the yakuma all at once.

[KAMANOSUKE]: “I’m the diversion… Got it.”

Kamanosuke-kun said that and at the end of his gaze was Ranmaru-san.

In my head the figure of Kamanosuke-kun charging towards the Oda army alone came to my mind.

[YUZUKI]: (Kamanosuke-kun…)

Kamanosuke-kun averted his eyes immediately and then this time stared at the yakuma with a sharp look.

[KAMANOSUKE]: “… Just wait, Saizou…!”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “HAAGH…!”

Kamanosuke-kun cooperated with Ranmaru-san to throw the yakuma out of order.

Finally, Kamanosuke-kun looked over at Kojuurou-san. In that moment—

[KOJUUROU]: “Haah!”

[KANETSUGU]: “Haaaagh!”

The yakuma collapsed onto the ground with a resounding boom.

[YUZUKI]: (We did it! They’re dead…!)

Kamanosuke-kun looked around the area while catching his breath. He appeared to be a bit tired, but his expression was also clear somewhere.

[KAMANOSUKE]: “They’re all defeated.”

[MASANOBU]: “Yes. I think we’re safe for now. Still…”

[MASANOBU]: “For there to be such strong yakuma…”

[KANETSUGU]: “Yeah. It’s the first time they’ve been so strong.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Mm…”

[HANBEE]: “The strength of these yakuma was abnormal.”

[MASANOBU]: “It might be possible that the yakuma here were special yakuma used to dispose of those who approached the lithograph.”

[RANMARU]: “There’s a trace of vines being brushed away here… It looks like someone came here recently.”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Coming here means… the Mouri army?”

Kamanosuke-kun beckoned me over while saying this.

When I came close, I saw the letters written on the stone slab.

[RANMARU]: “It’s written with quite old characters. Let’s see…”

[RANMARU]: “—‘If thou completes the sacred treasures and offers them to the capital, then the path towards unification shall open.'”

[KAMANOSUKE]: “Gather the sacred treasures…? I wonder if taking those to the capital is a condition of unifying the country.”

[YUZUKI]: (The capital was where Himemiko-sama was, huh…)

As I thought that I heard footsteps from behind.

[???]: “Oh my, it appears there were preceding visitors.”

We turned around and two shapes were standing there quietly.
