うぃー、と

*Grunt*
Heshikiri Hasebe-small

また酒など飲んで。主の命がなければ切り捨てるところだ

You're drinking again. If it weren't for master's orders, I would slay you right here and now.
Nihongou-small

殿様が持つと格下でもつけあがるってなー

Talk about lowly swords getting conceited by riding on their master's coattails.1
Heshikiri Hasebe-small

貴様・・・・・・

How dare you...
Nihongou-small

今の主は同じだ、それは忘れるなよ

We share the same master now, don't forget that.
Heshikiri Hasebe-small

誰が忘れるか!

As if I would!
Nihongou-small

そーかい

Is that so.

↑ 1:  Nihongou used to be an Imperial Treasure that held senior court rank, however during their time in the Kuroda family, Nihongou's master was a retainer to Heshikiri's master, so their standings were reversed. Here, Nihongou is provoking Heshikiri by implying that Heshikiri is looking down on him since his master has a higher standing.

うぃー。酒はーのめーのめー

*Grunt* Drink on~ drink on~1

*Sigh*
Nihongou-small

相変わらず辛気臭いな。・・・・・・お前、すぐ口にするのは右府さまのことばかり、なぜ黒田家の話をしないんだ?

Man, you're depressing as always. ...You're always going on about Ufu-sama,2 why don't you talk about the Kuroda family?
Heshikiri Hasebe-small

話したくはない

I don't want to talk about that.
Nihongou-small

そうか。そりゃいいがね。お前見るとたまに折りたくなる。黒田家には義理があるんでな

I see. Well that's fine and all. Sometimes, when I look at you I get an urge to snap you in two. You see, I have an obligation to the Kuroda family.
Heshikiri Hasebe-small

・・・・・・

*Gulp*
Heshikiri Hasebe-small

・・・・・・

...
Heshikiri Hasebe-small

・・・・・・長政さまは、良い方だった。付喪神にあの世があるならばついて行きたかった。だができない。我々は人間より長くこの世に残る。だから忘れることにした

...Nagamasa-sama3 was a good lord. If an afterlife existed for Tsukumogami, I would have gone with him. However it's not possible. Compared to humans, we remain much longer in this world. That's why I chose to forget.
Nihongou-small

・・・・・・

...
Nihongou-small

・・・そうか

...I see.
Heshikiri Hasebe-small

本当に良い方だったのだ・・・・・・だが一番は今の主だ!それだけは覚えておけ!

He truly was a good person... but our current master is the most important! You'd better keep that in mind!
Nihongou-small

へっ。うぃー

Heh. Got'cha.

↑ 1:  Nihongou is singing the folk song Kuroda Bushi (黒田節) in which the first verse tells the story of how the Kuroda family obtained Nihongou from a drinking bet.

↑ 2:  Ufu-sama (右府さま) here refers to Oda Nobunaga (織田信長). Literally meaning Minister of the Right, Nobunaga was often referred to by his title after he assumed the position.

↑ 3:  Refers to Kuroda Nagamasa (黒田長政). There are several theories of how Heshikiri landed in the Kuroda family, the most widely known one being Oda Nobunaga had gifted the sword to Kuroda Kanbei (黒田官兵衛) who later on passed it to his son, Nagamasa.

よおし、今日も幸運を運びますよ!

Alright, I'll bring good fortune today as well!
Gotou Toushirou-small

死なないことが幸運なら、まあそうだな。

If by fortune you mean not dying, it's pretty likely you will.
Monoyoshi Sadamune-small

えーと、なんか、惡いことでも・・・・・・

Um, did I say something wrong...
Gotou Toushirou-small

別に。ただ、人間って勝手だよなって思っただけ。

It's nothing. I was just thinking that humans are always looking out for their own interests.
Monoyoshi Sadamune-small

それでいいんじゃないですか

Isn't that good?
Gotou Toushirou-small

あ?

Huh?
Monoyoshi Sadamune-small

それでいいんですよ。勝手じゃないと、人間はすぐに死にます。

That is good. If they don't look out for themselves, humans will instantly die.

源氏も元は皇家だろうに。どうして朝廷といくさを構えてしまうんだろうね

The Minamoto clan was an Imperial household to begin with. But why did they plot a war against the Imperial Court, I wonder?
Hizamaru-small

そうは言うがな、兄者。源氏内でも相争うのだから無理もなかろう

It's just like you said, elder brother. But since there was infighting even within the Minamoto clan itself, it isn't entirely impossible.
Higekiri-small

源氏の宝剣としてはどう振る舞えばいいか困ってしまうよね

How we should conduct ourselves as Minamoto's treasured swords would be quite tricky.
Hizamaru-small

そもそも、源氏といえど、どこから分派したかで全然扱いが違ってだな・・・・・・

In the first place, even if you're a Minamoto, depending on which branch you hailed from, people would treat you as different as night and day...
Higekiri-small

あー、そういう細かいことは興味ないかな。大雑把に行こう。源氏ばんざい!

Ah, I guess such trifles don't really matter. Let's not be nitpicky. All hail the Minamoto clan!
Hizamaru-small

兄者ぁー!

Elder brother!

Calm down. We're no longer able to do anything for him.

・・・お前は!お前は、信長様がどうなってもいいと・・・!

You! You don't care about what happens to Nobunaga-sama...!
Heshikiri Hasebe-small

どうでもいいね。お前と違って、俺は捨てられた身だ。いい気味だとすら思っている

I don't. Unlike you, I was thrown away. I only think he got what he deserved.
Fudou Yukimitsu-small

・・・話した俺が、馬鹿だったよ・・・

...I'm an idiot, thinking I could talk to you...
Heshikiri Hasebe-small

人の生は歴史の流れからすると一瞬だ。生まれたらいつかは死ぬんだよ。織田信長も例外じゃなかったってだけだ

From our perspective, human lives are only but an instant in the passage of history. All who are born will die someday. Oda Nobunaga was no exception.
Fudou Yukimitsu-small

・・・・・・

...
Fudou Yukimitsu-small

・・・お前は、信長様のところにずっといるべきだったのかもな

...Maybe you should've always stayed there, at Nobunaga-sama's side.
Heshikiri Hasebe-small

ははっ、二度とごめんだね。俺の主は、今の主さ

Haha! Never again. My only Master is our current Master.

Are you saying you can understand me just from my appearance?

Your profession, whether you are rich or poor, what your goals are. I can understand many things.

Your previous master who also got involved in other people's fights was though.

I guess. So, what about Sekigahara?
Taikogane Sadamune-small

あー。まあ、有名ですよねー

Ah--. Well, it's famous, right?
Ookurikara-small

ふん

Hmph.

↑ 1:  In addition to being the name of the battlefield, 'Sekigahara' has a secondary meaning of 'decisive battle'. This was where Tokugawa Ieyasu's Eastern Army defeated Toyotomi Hideyori's Western Army and gained control over Japan, beginning the Tokugawa shogunate.
