Exchange with Nobunaga when the Akechi army's
reinforcements arrive

Mitsuhide: Everyone, you are not allowed to kill

  Now let us make you taste the same pain!!


Making the player hurry up towards the mountaintop

  It feels like an unprecedented battle
  is about to take place..
  (He salutes like a gentleman)
  I am Akechi Mitsuhide...
  For the sake of my revered Master Nobunaga...


As soon as battle starts

- Master Nobunaga, please do watch me...hehe...


Mitsuhide uses the incenser on himself

- Let us stake our lives on the line..
  Not in some game, but in a real killing!

*** The Azure & Crimson United Front Stage ***

After stage starts

- Heh..children are quite energetic..


Being told by Ranmaru not to get in his way

- You too, work hard as best as you can...


The Akechi army is on the move 1

Ranmaru: Mitsuhide, what's this good idea of yours?

Mitsuhide: To corner a wounded beast,
           it is basic to encircle it from afar..
           First I shall dispatch my soldiers...


The Akechi army is on the move 2

- It's not finished yet..Akechi army, to battle.


The Akechi army is on the move 3

- Do not be afraid, keep charging forward.


Talking about Mitsuhide's strategy

Mitsuhide: Children must listen to what adults say...


The strategy completely fails - 
Event when Ranmaru and Mitsuhide starts fighting

Ranmaru: The hell you're doing!?
         All your soldiers got messed up!!

Mitsuhide: Your soldiers were the ones to
           let the enemy pass through...
           Giving others the blame is quite unsightly...

Ranmaru: Whaa!!? You piss me off!!! (He aims at Mitsuhide)


Mitsuhide and Ranmaru's cooperation breaks up 1 

Ranmaru: I'm gonna smash you first, Mitsuhide!!

Mitsuhide: So be it...
           Finally this noisy brat can disappear...


Mitsuhide and Ranmaru's cooperation breaks up 2

Ranmaru: And you said "do as I say", and all!!

Mitsuhide: Heh...this is what's called ignoring one's faults..


Mitsuhide and Ranmaru's cooperation breaks up 3

Ranmaru: You're an adult, don't go play dumb now!!
         This is all your fault!!

Mitsuhide: For a brat who doesn't even grasp the nature
           of things..you are quite insolent.
           Do you mean to become an adult by
           flapping that big mouth?


Mitsuhide and Ranmaru enter the scene

(The player arrives)

Ranmaru: What do you want..? Ranmaru's busy now!

Mitsuhide: You fools...
           do you really think you can kill me?


Mitsuhide and Ranmaru are fighting each other 1

Ranmaru: I know it!!
         You're always saying bad things about
         Ranmaru behind his back, aren't you!!?

Mitsuhide: Poor you...
           You are being haunted by obsessive ideas...


Mitsuhide and Ranmaru are fighting each other 2

Ranmaru: Anyway, you're just Mitsuhide,
         but you're pretty cheeky all the same!!

Mitsuhide: Such a fastidious noise...
           this is what makes you a brat...


Mitsuhide and Ranmaru are fighting each other 3

Mitsuhide: Who was it that shot an arrow at me the other day?

Ranmaru: Don't go minding such little things, now!
         It's proof that you're not generous at all!


Mitsuhide and Ranmaru are fighting each other 4

Mitsuhide: During the last battle, you've taken away my prey...

Ranmaru: It's your fault for not killing it right away!!!

Notes:
*A tanuki, called raccoon dog in english,
is an animal exclusive to Japan (IIRC).
In folklore, the tanuki (and the fox) are animals
that like to play pranks to humans,
and have the power to transform themselves.
Ieyasu is often called tanuki himself, because
of his roundish body and cheating attitude.
Not that he is like that in this game though...

   prospect for reemployment..

Versus Toshiie

  it's hard to fight seriously such a guy..

Notes:
* Since Hideyoshi is pretty tall,
Sasuke compares him to the guardian statues
often set beside gates and the like.

** It also has the meaning of
"trying to do more than one can"



*** In-Battle Lines (General) ***

- From here on it gets daaamn scary!!
  Because my master's there, that's why!

- Well well...the weather's turning bad..

- This also must be what they call coincidence..
  Bah, taking every little thing to heart
  isn't good tho.

- Ok, it's time for you to go home, c'mon!

- Ook, let's see how ready you are, now!

- There's no limit, you know..to what ninjas do.

*** Lines aimed at Fuma Kotaro (as ally) ***

Kotaro defeats up to 950 units

*** Nagashino ***

As Shingen ordered, activating the Fog Ninja Technique

- Oh? My turn has come, at last?
  Leave it to me commander!
  Here I go, Hidden Fog Technique!


Saying that guns can't be used inside the fog

- Using guns inside the mist is something only idiots would do!


Waiting for the player while being hidden by the fog

- You're not match for the Noble House Lord, just give up.
  Looks like you couldn't even defeat me, c'mon..

- If you walk with your eyes closed you might run into me, you know?



*** Hot blood! Takeda Dojo 1 ***

The masked Sasuke is thrown against the gate,
which opens

- Uwaaah!!

The transformation technique is dispelled

  No compassion, wow!



*** Hot blood! Takeda Dojo 3 ***

As stage starts

- I'm not good with all this stuff, too damn hot...


Sasuke battles the player

- Even if you tell me about burning souls, hehe...


Sasuke calls for Shingen

- Since it turned like this,
  guess it's time to call someone hotter than the magma!


Sasuke turns into Shingen and creates clones

- This technique uses lots of energy, you know...


The clones disappear

- Hoot!! Pretty tough, as I thought...


Sasuke defeated

- I'm not surrendering to your skill,
  but to this heat....

Sasuke and Kasuga use the summon lightning technique

(the two perform seals together, in perfect synchrony)

Sasuke & Kasuga: Forbidden technique, Thunder Dust!!
                 Madness!!


Using the lightning summoning technique

- We used it...this is one of most secret techniques.


Fighting against Sasuke

- Sorry, but I am not that soft...

- I haven't got a shred of pity for the likes of you..

- I want to go back soon, won't you disappear quickly?

- Don't go expecting anything...
  you've hit rock bottom here.

- These are the only moments when
  I think being a ninja is lucky..

- You..only you, will disappear here.

- To disappear while tormented by the greatest pain...
  a perfect fit for you.

- Don't worry, when you'll wake up it'll all be over.

*** Answer Lines ***

- Hm.

- I got it!



Note:

"Man is a castle, man is a stone wall, man is a moat.
Compassion is ally, revenge is enemy" is a famous phrase
supposedly said by Shingen.

It means that no matter how much solid a castle is,
if people's hearts are not united governing efficiently
is not possible.

Compassion unites people, and thus makes the province
prosper, but if enmities increase the province will
fall into ruin.

Hanbei: It certainly looks like that..
        But I won't let them interfere
        on the path you advance on..

-----

General

- I would advise you to leave this place
  as fast as you can..


Versus Masamune

- I don't know why, but looking at you irritates me so..


Versus Yukimura

- Yukimura..you do not understand anything.
  Differently from you, I don't even have
   a life I can put at stake..


Versus Keiji

- Leave this place at once..you are a real eyesore..!!


Versus Motochika

- Your weapons are very interesting...
  of course, much more than you are..


Versus Motonari

- You do not yearn for anything...
  nor you have a thirst you wish to quench..
  That too, is happiness..


Versus Nobunaga

- This country's symbol is one only..
  As long as there is Hideyoshi, that's enough.


Versus Nou Hime

- My apologies, but I don't have a second
  to spare acting as your opponent.


Versus Shingen

- I was waiting for you and the
   War God to destroy each other, but..
  It didn't go like that, I don't have time to waste..


Versus Kenshin

- You do overcome common sense in many ways...


Versus Kasuga

- To think that a passionate ninja like you exists..
  Sir War God too has it tough, despite appearances..


Versus Sasuke

- No one can sway you..not strength, nor death..
  Thus, what's left is only to crumble
  before the Toyotomi's name.


Versus Ranmaru

- How noisy..you really are irritating..


Versus Toshiie

- What a shame..I'm really disappointed
  in you people..(SB2)

- (answering) To restore our friendship..
  you mean facing the past?
  ...leave this place at once!! He is waiting for you. (SB2H)


Versus Matsu

- Are you the one who spoiled that insufferable man? (SB2)

- (answering) You must have been who raised that
  good-willed man... (SB2H)


Versus Itsuki

- Do feel at ease, since Hideyoshi
  will build a world without insurrections..


Versus Zabii

- As I thought, there's really nothing worth noting here.


Versus Yoshihiro

- Your strength is worth using for the Toyotomi's sake.


Versus Musashi

- I have trust in my ability to evaluate people..
  There's hope in you. Won't you join the Toyotomi army?


Versus Kojuro

- No one chooses a wise man as the one
  in charge of manual jobs...
  With this I mean you, Katakura...


Versus Nagamasa

- Your justice is extremely empty, yet it stands out..


Versus Oichi

- The ability of moving soldiers as if carrying sweet candy..
  Looks like learning from you would prove terribly useful.. 


Versus Ieyasu

- I don't dislike you at all, you know..
  But that and this are completely different topics.


Versus Tadakatsu

- I've made my decision, you're going to be useful
  for the Toyotomi.


Versus Kennyo

- Do you have 50.000.000 ryo* ready right away?
  If so, I'll let you in the Toyotomi forces... 


Versus Ujimasa

- Your castle and petty tricks are
  the only magnificent things you hold..


Versus Yoshimoto

- Hmm, if I think about it well..you may be used...
  No...that's no good, it's no use no matter how much I think.


Versus Kotaro

- It's truly a waste in the Hojo's hands...
  your name, I mean.
   

Versus Hisahide

- I do not wish to talk with you..
  My weakness would be exposed to the point
  of making me feel sick...


Notes:
* Ryo is an ancient currency
(the same money the game uses
for buying weapons, armor, and items)



*** In-Battle Lines (General) ***

- Keep lying down, over there...
  That's what fits you the most.

- If you wish to be forgiven,
  ask me while kneeling down..
 
- Time..only time spurs me on so hard...

- Please explain it to me..why do you head towards death?

- It's useless, bringing down Hideyoshi is impossible for you.

- I don't have time to be sad or to wail...

- Will you try to run wild, relying on your anger?
  That might just give you some chance of winning..

- There are no worries to be had...
  Once you yield to Hideyoshi, they completely end.

- At this point, I'm not trying to hold on my life or anything..
  I just have no life to sacrifice to you.

- Unfortunately, me and you cannot comprehend each other..



*** Lines aimed at Toyotomi Hideyoshi ***

        I don't deserve praise.


----- Being told "I leave this to you" and answering

Hideyoshi: Hanbei, can I leave this to you?

Hanbei: Heh, do you think I could ever say no?


----- Being told "Do your best" and answering

Hideyoshi: Hanbei, can you go on?

Hanbei: It's alright..I won't bring shame to your name.


----- Being told "You need help" and answering

  Tadakatsu's strength is flowing inside me!!
  Here I depart!! Here I pass away!!
  Here I go, Tadakatsu!!!*


Note:
* The three verbs are pronounced the same in japanese,
and all of them generally mean "to go".
But the first means going on a journey,
the second going to the other world, (i.e. dying)
with the third simply meaning to go.

  (Tadakatsu gets back up, powered up)
  This is indeed the man who only knows victory!!


Honda Tadakatsu, revived again

- Not a shred of naivete...in Tadakatsu, I mean!! Haha!!


Tadakatsu is finally destroyed

           Do they want to throw away their
           lives in vain..? How pitiful...

- You call yourself a commander with this
  little ability??

- Not understanding the difference in capacity
  is a sin!

- Work at my command, for the sake of my country!

- What do you carry in order to control the country?

- There can be no withdrawal for me,
  but simply and solely advance!

- However you may put it,
  if you don't win there's no meaning!

- To take hold of this country,
  I have long since thrown away both love and emotion!

- The real enemy is in your opposite direction,
  far away in the distance...

- I can't lose to someone who doesn't
  perceive and remedy to his own weakness!

- Can you see how Japan will be in 100 years?



*** Lines aimed at Takenaka Hanbei ***

- Heh..beautiful technique, and splendid work.

  I witnessed them without looking away.


Hanbei defeats more than 1000 units

- Am I making Hanbei work too much...?

  loses meaning, doesn't it!

Hanbei is in a pinch

Hanbei's health is low

- Get back, Hanbei!
  I can't afford to lose you!!


Hanbei dies

  will be brought to reality!

Hanbei: Then..what shall we do, Hideyoshi?

Hideyoshi: There's no need to ask, we need only advance!!

Hanbei: It'll be alright if I leave this to you, won't it?

Hideyoshi: Yes! Do believe in me!! 


----- Being told "Do your best" and answering

Hanbei: This battle is just a stepping stone, Hideyoshi.

Hideyoshi: Understood, I will not stop!!


----- Being told "You need help" and answering

Hideyoshi: Exactly, now my real ability will show itself!


----- Being told "I need help" and answering

Hanbei: I'm-I'm all right..
        No problems at all here...

Hideyoshi: Hanbei..
           ...I believe in you!!

*** Lines aimed at Maeda Keiji ***

Keiji defeats (not kills) up to 950 units

  Look at the situation carefully!


Keiji defeats 1000 units

- This is what your strength was like, heh....


Keiji defeats an enemy general

- Good..time for me to show what I'm worth.

- What's wrong Keiji, are you short of breath?

- Don't worry so much about the enemy's safety!
  He's going to wake up in a hour or so, anyway!



*** Inland Sea Stage ***

Player has boarded the ship and is
rampaging on Hideyoshi's great warship

- Akechi Mitsuhide, I have taken control of this Tennozan.
  Be a good fox and fall into the trap!


The player uses the Toyotomi's flash bombs

The player is crossing to the main camp - 1

- This battle is the start of my path...
  Thus, I shall use all my power.


The player is crossing to the main camp - 2

- My elite soldiers are the ones surrounding you!


The player is crossing to the main camp - 3

- Even if the opponent is just a fox,

(Kotaro story mode only)

- Even if the opponents are just three mice,
  corner them with all your strength!


The player is crossing to the main camp - 4

  Man's strength is truly without limit....


After the battle against Hideyoshi starts

- Will you be defeated by me here,
  or run away and become a lure for a bamboo spear*?
  ...choose.


Notes:
*The way Mitsuhide is said to have been killed
after his defeat at Yamazaki


While fighting Hideyoshi

- Eleven days*...enough time for you to experience despair.


Notes:

- Which one's show will we look at from up close..?


Seeing a giant contraption

- Trivial, trivial.



*** Lines aimed at allies***

To allied generals fighting the player

- I expect great things from you,
  excellent gentlemen.

- You're going to kill him?
  My heart aches at the thought..

- It's alright, even if you were to die
  it would only last an instant..

- Vexing, vexing.


Giving allies the order to advance

- Advance..what will you gentlemen be able to do?


Scold allies

- Mass of nobodies...
  Your capacity is just this great, then..

Versus Kotaro

*** In-Battle Lines (General) ***

- Unfortunate, isn't it..man is not that kind.
  You, sir, do not know that..

-  There is no "I was a good man once"
  - type of conclusion at all.

- Let us confront honestly...
  cheating one another is not my forte.

- He who lives in heresy dies heretically..
  Isn't that a perfectly just way to die?

- You, sir, are an excellent comedian...
  the backstage is over there.

- Let us become good friends...what?
  Even the little time you have left
  before dying is enough.

- If I had to confess,
  you sirs are of no interest at all to me.

- Where was I born..?
  Well, that does not matter now.

- If left alone, the world rots.
  Like corpses in a mausoleum...

- Fire eventually goes out...
  the burnt trees do not come back.
  The world's structure is a mystery indeed..

- I understand, life is..
  As difficult as giving a writing brush to a monkey
  and having it write psalms..

- A rancorous soul is coming..
  Today too, someone will die..

- Hahaha, this is why I just don't understand life!



*** Answer Lines ***

- Hm, understood.

- So, no other way I guess.



*** Battle of the Burning Great Buddha Hall ***

Immediately after Stage Start

- Ooh, gentlemen..what leads you to this Todaiji?


When the bridge is blown up to hinder the player

- Now let me show you something nice..

(The bridge is abruptly blown up and collapses.
Hisahide stands at the other side, silent.)

- So, was it to your liking?


After the bridge collapses

- Do not howl like that, destruction is hard work..


After making the soldiers use the immortal incense

- Fear or what is akin to it,
  doing this all that goes away..
  With this you can live following your desires..


The player destroys the immortal incense dispensers

- What a shame..these incensers are high-class items..


Having the player surrounded by the artillery squad

- With this you too, sir,
  will become splendidly full of holes.


The player helps the hostages

- What's that action supposed to mean..?
  Hypocrisy, isn't it hypocrisy?


Hisahide sets fire to the Great Buddha Hall

(With Hisahide's signal, an explosion occurs.
Fire starts in the Great Buddha hall)

- Watch, this is the destruction of time!


After having set fire to the Great Buddha Hall

- Hahaha!
  Do not cower from the weight of your sins!


Hisahide activates the immortal incense on himself

- In the end, I too am a living being..
  even with all this, I hold my life dear..

(Keeping the pain in check,
he sends a signal and the incensers light up)


Hisahide, while using the immortal incensers

- Throwing away something to obtain something else...
  quite a reasonable concept, right? 

- Please don't misunderstand,
  I'm not doing this as a last resort out of desperation..

- This is painful...
  but it too is for happiness' sake, or is it?

- If you, sir, die, this pain will end..

- Thinking about the pain that will come,
  I feel my lifespan shortening, heh..



*** Battle of Hitotoribashi ***

Immediately after stage starts

- How are you feeling?
  I was waiting for you to come, sir.


Taking prisoners from the player's army

- I have taken as prisoners some of your soldiers,
  sir.
  What, isn't this a petty triviality?


Luring the player in the cave rigged with traps

- If you are planning to cross this cave,
  use every care...


Many soldiers appear from Hisahide's traps

- That must have surprised you..what?
  There's no need to pay this entertainment's fee.


Because of Hisahide's traps, the cave's ceiling crumbles

- The gunpowder was too strong..?
  I did not expect this, but that isn't a problem at all.



*** Matsunaga army's ambush ***

Event at the start of the stage

(Hisahide stands silently, his army at his side, ready.)

- Go. And destroy everything.


Hisahide stages a surprise attack on the player's army

- If the vital point is destroyed, it can be opened.
  It's the same for both castles and gates..


Describing the gate's condition - light damage

- There's no harm in destroying such a no-name gate,
  right?


Describing the door's condition - medium damage

- There's still a long way to go...
  let us ascertain which way it will go..


Describing the door's condition - heavy damage

- I don't think it's possible, but..
  You're thinking "I can win this"?


Describing the door's condition
- on the brink of destruction

- If you acknowledged it everything'd become easier.
  ..your defeat, I mean.


Sending the Nious on the battlefield

- Try to stop them, there's much
  to be gained in destroying them, no?


Sending the bomb soldiers on the battlefield

- Death by explosion, huh..?
  Let's have you sirs too taste it, and see what happens..


The player is resisting more than predicted

- Why are you, sir, fighting?
  ...shall I test it myself personally?


All the Matsunaga forces have been wiped out

- Total destruction, is it...
  they handled even less than what I expected..


Bring the player's hostages onto the battlefield

- Yes, there was something I wanted to show you!


The Matsunaga army ties up the prisoners

- The men, or the gate..which will you choose?


The player loses

(Hisahide stands quietly smack
in the middle of the gate's explosion)

- And with this it's your loss, sir..
  What, it's something I knew perfectly well
  from the start.
