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 2.5

Even after everyone in the Mouri army leapt onto the battlefield, I hid together with Imari-kun and Motonari-san in the forest.

[MOTONARI]: “… It appears that Takamoto and Terumoto have returned. Now then, I should depart—“

[YUZUKI]: “Huh…”

[MOTONARI]: “I also have something I must do, you see. Have no worries, I will be entrusting you to the two of them, princess.”

[MOTONARI]: “I will return immediately, so wait here.”

Chapter 2: Walking on Eggshells

Shingen and the others advanced while cutting down the enemy soldiers. Exchanging a bout with Hideyoshi and the others, they moved forward aiming to join up with the forces of their allies.

There the figure of a single man appeared…

Chapter 2.3

The direction Masakage indicated— there was the figure of Hideyoshi, the Toyotomi army general.

[SHINGEN]: “… To appear and show off like this. Looks like he’s inviting us, but… there’s no reason to retreat here!”

[SHINGEN]: “Let’s go!”

With Shingen at the head, he and Takeda’s commanders advanced resolutely towards Hideyoshi.

[NOBUNAGA]: “You… Mouri Motonari.”

[MOTONARI]: “Indeed. I am Mouri Motonari, the general of the Mouri army.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “… Ooh, to think the general himself would appear.”

Hideyoshi stretched a hand to his sword while keeping cautious to Motonari who came over with relaxed steps.

[HIDEYOSHI]: (The other Mouri commanders… aren’t here? No way, did he show up in front of us alone? Or are they hiding themselves?)

Unchanging, the messengers from each unit came into the main camp of the Toyotomi army without end. In the middle of that, there was one worrying piece of information.

[YUZUKI]: “—Hideyoshi-san and Toshiie-san have withdrawn from the front line?”

[MITSUNARI]: “Yes, a messenger reported that. As planned, they should have skirmished with Shingen and his retainers, but…”

[YUZUKI]: “No way, what if either Hideyoshi-san or Toshiie-san was hurt…?”

[SHINGEN]: “—TOYOTOMI HIDEYOSHI!”

Chapter 1: Alliance

Having joined in an alliance with Oda and Date, Hideyoshi and the others departed for Mouri territory, searching for clues on Himemiko.

However the alliance, which was formed because of a common interest, stands on thin ice…

Chapter 1.4

Right after Hideyoshi-san returned from the war council of generals, we began a strategy meeting on we should fight the enemy allied forces.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “I talk to Nobunaga and Masamune too about what our entire alliance should do, but… well, basically, we’d play it by ear and cooperate by crushing each force individually.”

[YUZUKI]: “Erm…? Can that be called cooperating…?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “It’s more realistic like that than cooperating poorly.”

Having joined in an alliance with Oda and Date, Hideyoshi and the others departed for Mouri territory, searching for clues on Himemiko.

However the alliance, which was formed because of a common interest, stands on thin ice…

Chapter 1.1

The Toyotomi army set off towards Mouri territory ahead of the Oda army to search for clues on Himemiko-sama. That… should have been the case, but—

On the way we joined up with the Oda army and the Date army, newly added to the alliance, and in the end advanced towards Mouri territory in step with each other.

[YUZUKI]: (If we were going to wait and join up with the other armies that caught up then there wasn’t any meaning to setting off early…)

[YUZUKI]: “This is according to Hideyoshi-san’s plan… right?”

Indeed, Hideyoshi-san asked Nobunaga-san for reinforcements before the Mouri attack.

[YUZUKI]: (But its biggest purpose should have been to let Nobunaga-san know that we were attacking Mouri and taking the lead…)
