East of Mount Nangu, Asano Yukinaga, hearing the sound of battle, charged his eastern samurai forward. They struck home on Natsuka Masaie's position, which surprised the other western commanders, who for the most part just watched as the fight unfolded. Yukinaga was quickly gaining the upper hand, while the sizable forces of Masaie allies, Mori Hidemoto and Chosokabe Morichika, instead of joining the battle, choose to remain passive and just watch. This situation of loyalty of the western clans unfortunately would surface throughout the battle.
