Arc 1 – The Conclusion Special: Kaguya

Yoshiro: This is a scene in the book that I thought was interesting. I won’t be doing the full translations but just the love comedy in it. I won’t be doing this often so please don’t anticipate it too much.

The following event happened when Kaguya, Yukito and the group were taking a rest on the way to the capital. Kaguya is looking for Yukito on his rewards for saving her while thinking of the things Yukito did for her.

Well, it’s quite a half-assed job since I skipped the front portion of Kaguya’s thoughts. But I thought it might be interesting for some nonetheless.


Arc 1: The Rebellion – The Conclusion Special: Kaguya

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

From Kaguya’s perspective……

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“I wonder how should I return the favour……”

“Then, could you quicken the restoration of diplomatic ties with Albion?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Being called out suddenly, I stretched my right hand to the direction of the voice.

Having grabbed cloth in my right hand, I threw whatever I grabbed due to the habit that have been ingrained in me.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“That hurts!? Did you not want that so badly!?”

“Mu, My apology. It, it was a habit.”

“Do you have a habit of seizing someone single-handedly….”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Yukito who was released from my right hand, lightly rotated his shoulders, saying that.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“It’s because you suddenly spoke to me that I thought it was the enemy. Though I do have my faults, you also have your faults, you know?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

The location is on the bank of the river near the resting place. Yukito seems to have come here to refill his water supply.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Let’s see. Just that, I thought that Kaguya-sama would have realized it when I approached.”

“I was thinking of something…”

“In regards to my rewards?”

“Well, something like that. So? Why do you want to quicken the restoration of diplomatic ties with Albion?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

A naive question.

Yukito is likely a person from the island.

If that’s the case, I thought it would be normal for him to prioritize the island which is his home though.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“I have a promise. That I would go and meet her… I promised her.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

He doesn’t say who is it.

However, it’s not difficult to guess who it is. From what I know, Yukito is only acquainted with one person from Albion.

Of course, the possibility that it’s not is also high. But, my instinct tell me that it’s correct.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Is it the Celsus Maiden, Sophia Leedsberg?”

“Yes….. that’s why I am hoping for the war to end quickly and after that, I wish to settle the post-war operations promptly. ”

“You are already in the mood of victory? It’s not easy, you know?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Yukito weirdly tilted his head.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Wasn’t Kaguya-sama also thinking in regards to rewards?”

“…well….. I did think of it though….”

“Then, isn’t Kaguya-sama convinced of victory as well? So even if I am in the mood of victory, it isn’t wrong, right?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

I wonder why.

Somehow, I feel like I am being mocked.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“You… are you mocking me?”

“No way. I am not teasing you, you know.”

“You are teasing me, aren’t you!? Right!?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

I am going to compare the current Yukito, it will be to a child who is playing a prank.

His smile is slightly giving an unpleasant feeling.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Well, teasing is an essential method of communication of meaning after all.”

“That’s the first time I am hearing that….. Seriously, at the very least, I am still your master’s sister, you know.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

I said that to get back some dignity.

But.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“I know.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

If you know, then give me some respect.

That was what I thought in my heart, but I didn’t speak of it.

If you say something about respect yourself, it will end up like an expression of wanting to be respected.

A person who speak of such desire, would not be respected.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Then, it’s fine.”

“It’s fine?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Yukito somehow made a rather disappointed expression.

Was he anticipating me to ask him to respect him, I wonder?

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“I am not as childish as you think I am.”

“I see….If I say it like this, Sophia will definitely pout about it, so I was wondering if Kaguya-sama might pout too.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

My heart is enveloped in cold emotions.

How should I say about this feelings? It’s hard to describe it but if I have to, it will be:

‘Unpleasant’, I wonder.

Nope, I am without doubt unpleasant.

After all, I am suddenly being compared to a girl whom I only heard the name of.

Furthermore, the person himself is giving such a disappointed expression.

He is likely hoping for the same reaction. And, as my reaction left something to be desired, Yukito was feeling discontented.

It’s unpleasant.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Yukito…. I heard that you are close with Sophia Leedsberg…… but, don’t you think that comparing her to me is kind of rude?”

“That’s true. Sophia-sama is the Celsus Maiden. To speak of her name in such conversation is imprudent, isn’t it?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

That’s not it!

That’s not what I am trying to say. Furthermore, he is still staring at me for some reason.

It is apparent from that.

Yukito is looking at me at a lower rating compared to Sophia Leedsberg.

I am still more or less a princess, and a famous general at that.

And even then, to say that it’s imprudent to be compared to her in front of me.

It’s unpleasant.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“You….. do you wish to anger me…..?”

“Uhm…. did I say something bad?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Yukito inquired, looking as if he really doesn’t understand.

Seeing that my anger seems to be conveyed, I am feeling not as angered as before.

Seeing such a Yukito, just slightly, really just slightly, unpleasantness seems to be going off.

But, it’s not like it’s completely alleviated.

Even though we are advancing towards the capital, I can’t stand this unpleasantness.

I have to wipe this feeling off.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Yukito…. Answer me frankly. Sophia Leedsberg and me, who do you think is more attractive?” (TL: Whoa, that’s direct and such a bad flag from our princess…. LOL…)

“That is regarding the perspective as a female or as a person?”

“Everything in regards to the person. Like me with the talent on the battlefield, Sophia Leedsberg has her talent in magic. Like the position of being the princess of Veris I have, Sophia Leedsberg has her position as the Celsus Maiden. Everything being aggregated.”

“Sophia-sama.” (TL: Pfftttt…. Sokutou kai…. Means Instant reply.)

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Before I could complete my sentence, Yukito announced that.

As if it was just a simple comparison of numbers.

It shouldn’t be such a simple comparison.

While there are many servants that have phrased my appearance, I believe that I am better than average looking at the numbers.

I can understand if it’s in regards to feminine behavior, but to be given a prompt reply in regards to my attractiveness as a person.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Yu,Yukito”

“Yes?”

“Why….aren’t you brooding over it?”

“Because I get it if I see it, I think.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

You are telling me there is a difference that can be perceived just by seeing.

No matter what, there shouldn’t be such a difference.

This is definitely Yukito’s biasedness.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Did you compare partially?”

“Hmm… I believe it’s fair, you know? Kaguya-sama.”

“What……?”

“Sophia-sama is special, so I believe it’s better that you don’t get too bothered by it.” (TL: Baka Yukito 😛 )

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Yukito said that with a smile.

And then, the tail of my patience snapped.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“…..IT’S. UN. PLEA. SANT!!”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

I stamped my foot as hard as I can on Yukito’s right foot, while screaming that.

Though I didn’t enhance with magic as expected, that should be rather painful.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“U u u”

“It’s time to go! The break is over!”

“….wa… please wait a moment… my.. My foot is….”

“I don’t care! Follow even if you use just your willpower or something”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Seriously, why do I have to be so irritated no matter what.

Though Yukito is bad, the origin of evil are people in the capital.

I will have them be the targets of my irritation.

Having decided that, I returned to where the knights were resting without turning behind.

    Well… I can only say that sometimes it’s hard for men to understand women if they don’t give any sort of hint regarding that matter….
    Also, the reason for his instant reply is because he can see everybody’s status screen with a numerical number… And apparently….Sophia-sama won…

    Thanks for the chapter. It’s a nice little insight into Kaguya’s thoughts. It looks like she’s already falling for him and he’s being dense about it. Deliberately perhaps? After all, even he found it hard to deny that he knew how Sophia felt about him when someone called him on it. So he might be playing dumb since he already has her? Though handling it like this will probably just fire Kaguya’s competative spirit up more.
    Sparks will fly if her and Sophia meet, I’m sure of it.
