Settling down love quarrels
Boss: Uesugi Kenshin / Kasuga
Narrator: Here's Keiji, the Maeda's vagabond.
Usually spending his time as he fancied in the capital,
one day he departed on a journey on a whim.
Being attracted by the smell of love quarrels wafting
from somewhere, he finally reached Kawanakajima.
Keiji: Where love presents itself, Maeda Keiji shows himself!
No matter what tangling, no matter what trouble,
I will set things straight and right again!
Chapter 1 - Start
[Event at the start of the stage]
(Keiji appears at Kawanakajima and calls Kenshin gaily)
Keiji: Heeey Kenshin, I came to visit!!
(Kenshin and Kasuga are confronting each other)
Kasuga: Lord Kenshin, I beg of you! Believe in me!
Kenshin: Do calm down now, my beautiful sword.
Keiji: What happened, you two?
Fighting like that and everything...
Kenshin: Keiji! This is not a fight...
[VS Kenshin & Kasuga]
Kasuga: I heard that there's a legendary ninja at Odawara...
We must find out more about that!!
Kenshin: That is not good! I don't want to see you wounded.
Keiji: C'mon Kasuga, women in love must smile more!
Kasuga: But..! I want to be more useful to lord Kenshin!
Keiji: Hey Kenshin, if you make women cry the Heavens'
will punish you, you know?
Kenshin: Oh, that would certainly be problematic...
Kasuga: So lord Kenshin has no faith in me...?
Kenshin: I do not wish to let you go precisely
because you're essential to me...
Keiji: C'mon, believe in Kasuga, won't you?
Look at the poor thing!
Kenshin: It's just like as you say....
Kenshin: Let us believe in you, beautiful sword...
Kasuga: Aaah, I'm so happy...!!
Keiji: One resolved love quarrel, coming up!
Boss: Azai Nagamasa / Oichi
Narrator: Keiji brilliantly resolved a love quarrel;
the next scent which caught his nose was coming from Anegawa,
a whiff of a fight between a married a couple that no wise man
would interfere in...
Oichi: Lord Nagamasa...don't get angry at Ichi...
Nagamasa: Shut up! Stop sobbing like that!!
Keiji: What's this, what's this?
A quarrel broke out here too?
Chapter 2 - Start
Keiji: Well well you two, won't you calm down a bit?
Nagamasa: The Maeda vagabond, huh...
Let's just say that interfering is no use.
[VS Nagamasa / Oichi]
Keiji: This's no good mr. Azai,
making women cry is just evil!
Nagamasa: Me...evil!?! This cannot be...
Keiji: They say people are born with such things,
They can't help it, you know?
Keiji: If you keep shouting, ms. Oichi will just
get more and more afraid, see?
Nagamasa: Sorry about that...I did not mean to shout.
Oichi: Why does lord Nagamasa get angry with Ichi...?
Keiji: He's not angry, he's just embarassed...
Keiji: They say no wise man would interfere in
a quarrel between husband and wife, right?
C'mon now, kiss and make up!
Nagamasa: You're a lazy kind of evil...
But for this time I will call you justice!
Keiji: Second resolved love quarrel, coming right up!
Narrator: Keiji, having resolved the love quarrel
in Anegawa, proceeded to Odawara.
What he heard there were the voices of
a man and a woman fighting...
Kasuga: Don't get any closer Sasuke! Go away!
Sasuke: C'mon now, don't be like that!
Keiji: This voice's...Kasuga and that Takeda ninja?
Sasuke: We met and all, why don't we try to get along?
Kasuga: Hn, I'm going back now.
Keiji: Ah, that ninja guy sure never gives up...
[VS Kasuga / Sasuke]
Keiji: Kasuga, today's perfect weather for flower viewing!
At least listen to what he has to say, won't you?
Kasuga: But...this guy's always so stubborn!
Keiji: If pushing gives no results, why don't you try
pulling away once in a while?
Sasuke: You know, I already failed so many times
because I do nothing but pulling...
Keiji: He's the type that focuses on one single goal,
try to understand...
Kasuga: No good, for me lord Kenshin is the only one!
Sasuke: But even if things are like this,
I do my best, you know...
Keiji: Now don't get downhearted, I'm cheering for you!
Keiji: A love that just watches can be a good one too,
Sasuke: Someway, she was kinder than usual this time...
Maybe thanks to you?
Keiji: Third resolved love quarrel, coming right up!
Boss: Oda Nobunaga / Nouhime
Narrator: In Okehazama, Keiji felt once again the scent
of a love quarrel. I shall put this to an end,
he thought, and proceeded forward full of spirit.
Nouhime: Lord Kazusa no Suke, I have a terrible feeling
about the next battle!
Nobunaga: Silence, woman...you dare give us orders?
Keiji: Whoa, so they're arguing here too?
Chapter 4 - Start
Nobunaga: Such a trifling battle...
We shall suppress it personally!
Nouhime: Please do sent your humble Nou in your stead!!
Keiji: Ok there you two, now you may stop it!
[VS Nobunaga / Nouhime]
Nobunaga: Brat of the Maeda...
You too wish to voice your opinion to us?
Keiji: Of course not, I have no intention to!
Nouhime: Our Lord's next battle is truly worrying...!
Keiji: Don't they bring tears to your eyes,
admirable feelings like these?
Keiji: The say women's intuition hits it right often, no?
Why don't you give up on this battle?
Nobunaga: Listen to this moron...
There is no way back in my path to conquest!
Nouhime: If the worst were to happen to Our Lord...
Everything would be finished!!
Keiji: Let's protect then, to not lose who's important to us!
Nobunaga: To even dare giving orders to us...what a bold woman, fuhaha!!
Nobunaga: Thus follow me, Nou.
Nouhime: Yes my Lord! I shall prove useful to you,
no matter what!
Keiji: Fourth resolved love quarrel, coming right up!
Boss: Sanada Yukimura / Takeda Shingen
Narrator: Keiji's next destination was Nagashino,
where he saw two people punching each other
repeatedly. Whether it was a love quarrel or
just a brawl was unknown...
Yukimura: Noble House Lord!!
Yukimura: NOBLE HOUSE LOORD!!!
Keiji: What's with those guys?
Why are they smacking each other like that?
Chapter 5 - Start
Keiji: Hey you, why are you punching yourselves like that?
Yukimura: Ooh, sir Maeda, this is the way we build our focus!
Shingen: Yes, exactly!
[VS Shingen & Yukimura]
Yukimura: Now I'm focused!!
Do grant a match to I, Yukimura!!
Keiji: Oook, let's give it a swing then!!
Shingen: Let your strength roar, Yukimura!!
Break out of your current state and reach new heights!!
Yukimura: I won't lose, I won't lose, I won't LOOOSSSEEE!!
Keiji: Wha, it's not like I'm gonna lose neither!
Shingen: Yukimura has the upper hand in attacking,
but the Maeda child has better defense...
Yukimura: What has happened?
Produce more energy so I can grow even more!
Keiji: Now you've said it! Time to get serious then!!
Yukimura: Thanks to this bout
I have advanced another step!!!
Shingen: Splendid, Yukimuraaah!!
Keiji: We can't call this a quarrel, can we...
Stage: Kyoto Flower Avenue
Boss: Maeda Toshiie / Matsu
Narrator: Keiji left Nagashino and, bringing his travels
to a conclusion, headed back towards the capital.
However, that fearful couple was awaiting him there...
Matsu: Keiji, you've finally come back I see!
Toshiie: We heard lots about you lately!
Keiji: Waah, it's Toshi and sister Matsu!!
Final chapter - start
Toshiie: Keiji, so you've settled down fights
in lots of places...
You've done well!!
Matsu: Lord Inuchiyo, if we don't scold him properly...
[VS Toshiie & Matsu]
Matsu: It's because lord Inuchiyo always spoils him...
That's why things like this happen!
Toshiie: What, you're saying this is my fault?
Keiji: Hey you two, stop it...
Matsu: Lord Inuchiyo has become Keiji's ally now!?
Keiji: Sister Matsu, calm down, please...
Toshiie: I want Keiji to grow up free.
Keiji: Toshi, quarreling's no good, right?
Matsu: And that is precisely why Keiji became
such an irresponsible child!
Toshiie: If you're too strict
Keiji will leave the house for good!
Keiji: What can I do..? They're fighting because of me..!
Keiji: Please you two, stop it now!
If you don't make up I'm leaving the house again!
Toshiie: Matsu...this is my fault.
Matsu: That is not true...Matsu is the one to blame here...
Keiji: Ah, look at those two...
...well, more importantly...
better hightail it while I can!
Narrator: And thus one of Keiji's travels ended.
What will this trip of small, subtle encounters
have brought to Keiji's heart...?
The path to the answer to this question is still long...
SPECIAL MISSION LINES
Keiji confronts Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who is
advancing towards the country's unification.
(He plans to settle their score from the past[SB2H].)
Special Mission (Cherry Flowers 50)
Boss: Toyotomi Hideyoshi
Hideyoshi: It's been a long time, old comrade...
Keiji: Looks like you haven't changed at all...what a shame.
[During the stage]
Keiji: Do you think that strength is what saves men,
Hideyoshi: That indeed is the reason why I exist.
From that day on...nothing has changed.
Keiji: Hideyoshi, that is nobody's fault.
We were just...young.
Hideyoshi: Silence! Being powerless is a sin!
You cannot even begin to understand
that sense of uselessness!!
Keiji: Hideyoshi, it's high time you let go of the past!
Hideyoshi: Which one of us isn't letting go, now?
Keiji: Why can't you understand!?
That you're the one that thinks more
of the past than anyone else!!
Keiji: What have you lost in order to gain strength?
You can't take back anything of that anymore!!
Hideyoshi: There is nothing to talk about anymore!
That day's fissure has separated us forever!!
Keiji: My voice reaches your ears, but not your heart...
Your eyes see, but your heart does not...
Keiji: If powerlessness is your sin,
Then not having stopped you
that day is mine...
Why doesn't time go back, Hideyoshi...?
