[SHINGEN]: “What fragrance satchet should I make next?… Since I’m doing it anyway, this time I was thinking of making you one too.”
[SHINGEN]: “I read in a book somewhere that apparently men and women have scent compatibilities too. It’s amazing that people can be drawn to each other by smell.”
[SHINGEN]: “When I hug you like this and smell your scent it certainly is relaxing… but, strangely, it also makes me feel an unbearable longing.”
[SHINGEN]: “I guess this is the feeling of finding someone dear.”
[SHINGEN]: “Can I keep holding you like this today and sleep? Your scent really does relax me. —It’d be nice if we could meet in our dreams.”
The sun was setting in the east and around the time it began to stain the area in warm colors, I was told that he wished to talk to me alone and so I came to the inner courtyard where he was waiting.
He said several things before he suddenly fell silent and directed an unusually serious gaze at me.
My breath caught at the dream-like sight of him, illuminated by the red light, and I—
—continued to stare at him like that.
[SHINGEN]: “You made some new medicine pills, didn’t you. I heard about your trial and errors from Masanobu. Thanks.”
[SHINGEN]: “I want to be someone who supports you like how the medicine pills you make support me— so, stay beside me from now and on too.”
—resolved myself to speak to him. [voiced]
[SHINGEN]: “It’s already been two years since you came to Shinga, huh. Each time I hold you, I think about wanting to feel your warmth even more.”
[SHINGEN]: “The time I spend with you has made me selfish, huh. Sorry about that. I’ve fallen for you to the point where I can’t hold myself back.”
—unconsciously averted my eyes.
[SHINGEN]: “Look over here. Won’t you let me see your face? Please.”
[SHINGEN]: “… You really are amazing. See, something a little sad happened, but after seeing your face I feel calm.”
[SHINGEN]: “You have a power that soothes people around you. That smile gives us strength. Thanks—“
Celebratory Flower Bouquet
(Thank you to waterinegirl for the commission! Note: this is a card story related to the event, “Overflowing Love and the Future Bride“.)
[SHINGEN]: “Yuzuki, can I come in?”
[YUZUKI]: “Yes, go ahead.”
[SHINGEN]: “Excuse me— woah.”

The Good Fortune Seven-Herb Rice Porridge
Early morning on the seventh day of January—
[MASAKAGE]: “Nobuharu-saaaan, I brought the radish.”
[NOBUHARU]: “Oh, that helps.”
[MASATOYO]: “Water dropwort, turnip, cudweed, chickweed, and nipplewort. Then there’s the shepherd’s purse and the radish that Masakage brought just now. We have everything gathered with this.”
Happy New Year. The weather for this year’s New Year’s morning is clear and we saw a beautiful sunrise, huh. It feels like there’ll be lots of good things! I’ll protect this land and fight with those guys this year too. And that man… I need to settle things soon. Your smile is my strength more than any kind of medicine. So, I’m asking you, please follow me and believe in me—
This year I get to end the year holding you too… You’re warm. This year was a great year as well. Of course, painful things happened but I get to close the year with you like this. I really have to be grateful for this miracle. It’s not to be taken for granted that I’ll be here together with you… If it could come true, I’d like to hold you in these arms of mine forever. I want to keep on feeling you—
(Whiplash going from Masamune’s YABAI to Yukimura’s sweetness to just wanting to lie down and cry for Shingen.)
Thank you for everything, as always.
Lately, there’s been many times where I find the sights I’ve grown used to seeing are beautiful.
Above all, I’ve started to think about wanting to see those sights together with you.
I think it’s probably because you’re here that I’ve been seeing the world shining more than it has up to now.
I’m really glad to have met you and I look forward to your support!
– Takeda Shingen
Phew, that took a while. It was harder to collect the variations this time around with the new potion system and then I got stuck trying to collect the last two potion scenes for FOREVER and then it turns out I forgot to screenshot a potion scene so then I had to find THAT one again and… yeah it was horrible. Apologies for the long delay!
[YUZUKI]: (Shingen-san… I wonder if he’s okay.)
Takeda Army’s base camp. I was there waiting for Shingen-san’s return while surrounded by soldiers.
[YUZUKI]: (The enemy’s forces seemed large and there’s been no reports on Shingen-san and the others… I hope everyone is safe…)
“I’ll protect you. So, keep on following me in the future too.”

Oh no! It seems like the leaders in Sengoku Night Blood were teleported to our world. Here’s your adventure with them for just today!! (There’s a ton of tweets embedded in this post so be careful if you’re viewing this on mobile. Also, between specific tweets, SNB held polls to see who got a card story and I’ve inserted those in too.)
“Thanks. If it’s this delicious, I almost want to try asking for chocolate-flavored medicine pills next time.
–I need you. Will you continue to stay beside me forever?”
White Day messages from Takeda! (I fell behind on translating the Uesugi story but I swear it wasn’t these messages! Just life in general, haha, so I’m gonna spam these White Day messages and hope they make up for the lack of a story update <3).
Happy New Year! How was the end of the year? Have you been resting well? I wonder what kind of year this year will be…… As the general of the Takeda Army I’m aiming to protect my people and unify the country…… that hasn’t changed since last year. But this year I have one more resolution. –I want to show you lots of sights. There’s still a lot of pretty places and interesting spots in Shinga. I’m looking forward to going there together with you.
It’s been cold for days, but are you alright? You haven’t caught a cold, have you?… Woah! You just sneezed, didn’t you. Come here. I’ll warm you up. It’s much colder today. –For a little while, let’s stay together like this.
(Cards about the anime were given out and they correspond with each episode of the anime. Shingen’s second card takes place after episode 9 of the anime).
[SHINGEN]: “When I think about you, I end up getting impatient……”
[SHINGEN]: “Haaa…… even though I know it’s not good to be like this, I can’t stay still.”
[SHINGEN]: “But don’t worry. I won’t overdo it. Because when I’m hurt and in pain, you look sad.”
[SHINGEN]: “I don’t want that. I don’t want to put that look on your face…… I want you to smile.”
[SHINGEN]: “When I get to you, smile at me with everything you’ve got. It’s a promise!”
