Event: The Targeted Post Town! A Fated Cooperative Battle

Following sightings of a yakuma subspecies, the Uesugi army stayed at a post town. At that time, the post town was attacked by a large horde of yakuma. Just as they were struggling with the large numbers, somehow the Takeda army entered to reinforce them…

Translation for waterinegirl who was one of the winners for this blog’s 2019 anniversary giveaway! I’ll be doing the whole event, so please enjoy!

Opening: Rumors of a New Yakuma

—One early afternoon, Kagemochi ran hurriedly into the great hall where Kenshin was.

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Ah, Kenshin-sama, so this is where you were.”

[KENSHIN]: “… Kagemochi, you seem to be in a hurry. Is something the matter?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “I wished to report this in haste. There have been reports of yakuma sightings inside the territory…”

[KENSHIN]: “… It doesn’t sound like a case where we should simply send the suppression unit.”

.[KAGEMOCHI]: “Yes. It appears that they are not simple yakuma.”

[KAGEIE]: “Kenshin-sama, excuse me! I’d like to report something…!”

[KAGEIE]: “Er… I’m sorry. Were you in the middle of talking?”

[KENSHIN]: “No matter. You also do not seem to have a simple matter.”

[KAGEIE]: “Yes. There’s been reports of yakuma appearing in the forest close to a post town…”

[KAGEIE]: “Furthermore, on top of looking different from normal yakuma, they seem to be very violent.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Kageie, it appears you’re talking about the same thing as me. Perhaps we should call them a… ‘yakuma subspecies’?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Sightings have been raised in each land and the people seem to be feeling concerned.”

[KENSHIN]: “… And what is the situation of harm?”

[KAGEIE]: “Fortunately, there hasn’t been any injured yet. But it won’t be strange for casualties to happen at any time.”

[KENSHIN]: “… We cannot neglect this.”

[KENSHIN]: “I shall act as well. We will gather information on this yakuma subspecies and exterminate them.”

[KENSHIN]: “Summon Kagekatsu and Kanetsugu too. We are leaving on an expedition.”

[KAGEIE + KAGEMOCHI]: “Yes, my lord.”


A few days after leaving town… the party arrived at the post town which was close to Takeda territory.

[KANETSUGU]: “Still… I haven’t seen any shadow or shape of those yakuma subspecies.”

[KANETSUGU]: “Going from the information we have to now, it’s just rumors from villagers and the claw marks on a large tree in the forest.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “… But eyewitnesses have increased. I think it wouldn’t be strange for us to encounter it some time.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “Besides the claw marks… they’re large enough to tell that it’s not a normal yakuma…”

[KANETSUGU]: “Yeah, that’s true. Just from seeing that, a normal person would be worried.”

[KANETSUGU]: “… Makes you want to kill it quickly for the sake of the villagers.”

[KAGEKATSU]: “… Mm, yeah.”

[KAGEIE]: “So this is where you two were. It looks like we’re lodging at this town today. Let’s go.”


[KENSHIN]: “I apologize for our abrupt visit.”

[INNKEEPER]: “No, no, we cannot offer any satisfactory hospitality, but if there is anything you require please tell us.”

[KENSHIN]: “Pay no mind to that. Aside from this— there is something I would like to ask.”

[KENSHIN]: “Have you heard about strange yakuma in this area recently?”

[INNKEEPER]: “Yes, it’s the talk of this town. There are several people who say they have seen a strange yakuma.”

[INNKEEPER]: “Everyone is frightened and refraining from going out but… I wonder if this town will be safe, Kenshin-sama?”

[KENSHIN]: “… Have no fear. If yakuma appear then we will protect everyone without fail.”


[KAGEMOCHI]: “Kenshin-sama, I have returned.”

[KENSHIN]: “Kagemochi, what is the state of the town?”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “My lord, there appears to be a number of people who have witnessed the yakuma subspecies.”

[KENSHIN]: “I see. Then the enemy is indeed close.”

[KENSHIN]: “… We must be prepared to battle in the future.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “In any case, the sun is already setting today. I believe it would be best to rest for tomorrow, correct?”

[KENSHIN]: “… Yes, you’re right.”


[KANETSUGU]: “Haah, I’m fed! That was some great food!”

[KAGEKATSU]: “… The vegetables were fresh. The sweets were also elaborate…”

[KAGEIE]: “The baths also seem to be from a running hot spring. Aah, it really works on a tired body.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Everyone, it is good to be relaxed but do not forget that it would not be strange for a yakuma to appear at any time.”


The next day after they rested their bodies at the inn… Kenshin suddenly stopped his hand during breakfast.

[KENSHIN]: “……”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “… Kenshin-sama, is something the matter?”

[KENSHIN]: “… No. I thought I heard something from outside just now.”


[KAGEIE]: “Kgh!… The sound of yakuma!?”

The outside of the inn suddenly became panicked and there were footsteps of people running away and terrified, shuddering voices resounded.

[KENSHIN]: “… We’re going. It may be the aforementioned yakuma subspecies. Take care.”


After going against the flow of fleeing people— the entrance of the post town was overflowing with a large number of yakuma.

[KANETSUGU]: “Che, this is bad.”

[KENSHIN]: “… A horde of yakuma.”

[KAGEMOCHI]: “Perhaps the silver lining of this dark cloud is that there is no yakuma with different colored fur.”

[KAGEIE]: “Still, it’s going to take a lot of effort to defeat this many.”

[YAKUMA]: “Grrrr…”

[KAGEKATSU]: “… They’re coming!”

[KENSHIN]: “… We will hold them here. We cannot allow the people to meet with any further harm. Do not let even a single one enter the town!”

    Congrats Waterinegirl. And thank you for sharing with us.

    I cannot stop thinking that “yakuma subspecies” sounds very scientific. And so, every time I read the word, I think of Kenshin and Co, with their lab coats, dissecting a yakuma.

      It’s such an ugly word I wasn’t too sure what to call it. Yakuma subtype? Yakuma variation? Hahaha, K-Kenshin is cultured and so he knows big words and everyone just followed him…

      Haha, the 2* story is pretty funny, but I also really liked the 5* cards here for Shingen and Kenshin.
