Fight against Shiro (Last)

 


? Prev       ? TOC       ? Next


As if proving his apotheosis, Shiro’s hair which was mostly white-colored turned into pitch black. Even his laughing face turned into something twisted, something that destroyed his original personality.

The moment he did, he landed a punch on my cheek and got me blown to the wall.
I didn’t feel pain from my back that hit against the wall, but pain soared in my punched cheek. I bit my inner cheek a little bit.
Blood accumulated inside my mouth, so I spat it out.
I was slightly startled by the pain that I hadn’t felt for a while.
Since I had my nonsensical status, I never felt pain anymore…… When I was reminiscing how it felt like to experience pain, Shiro appeared before me for a second time.

“Do you really have the time to play stupid?”

Shiro threw an uppercut. I barely saw that coming and got blown to the ceiling of the passageway, and still his fist caught up with me and caved into my stomach, causing the ceiling to gain a hideous crack.
And then Shiro grabbed my clothes, throwing me off to the ground.

“Urgh……”
“Come on, what’s wrong with you? Is it over already? Are you going to die just like this?”
“I don’t need you to tell me what to do, really…”

I forcibly pinned down the pain running all over my body, and I also executed my apotheosis.

“Let’s do this thing!!”

My deified self stood up right away and threw a punch to Shiro.
With his ever plastered smile, Shiro grabbed my fist and threw his own as a counter attack, but I stopped that one and put us into this battle for dominance.

He snickered.

Gugigigigigi….
“Ahahahaha….”

Please spare me already…… Your laugh really grates on my nerves!!!

I pulled Shiro close and headbutted him. He staggered, and in that small gap, I kicked him away.
Shiro already flipped mid air even as he was kicked off. Standing on his feet, he made a perfect landing.

“Ahahahaha!! As expected of Wazu-kun!! You’re so, so strong!! But….. It truly seems that after going through apotheosis, I’m the one with the higher status between us, am I right?”

I also thought the same as his words.
It wasn’t as if we had confronted each other for a long time after the apotheosis, but I could notice that much.
Just like he said, I was slightly weaker than him…… It was more accurate to say that I had lower divinity though, because it truly felt as if he was of a higher position than me.

“……Tch.”
“I wonder, why that is~”
“The hell if I’d know!!”

I instantly went to Shiro’s vicinity, but he saw my movement and met my punch with his own fist.
Just like that, I got blown away and hit the wall just like before.

“Eh? You really don’t know why? Then, let me tell you the reason. The difference between me and you, Wazu-kun, is the different between the complete and incomplete apotheosis!! Isn’t your resolution way too weak? Are you really that reluctant to shed away that mortal shell of a human? Why are you so fixated on that? Isn’t it better to get higher praises?? Because the two of us are the ones chosen by the God!!!”

…….ah, I see now…… So it’s something like that…….
In that case, I just need to properly complete my apotheosis!! He’s right though, I do feel a bit terrified of becoming something that’s not human…… This divinity thing is a completely unknown territory for me…… But even if I’m hesitating, I can’t let myself die here…… Because I have people waiting for me to come home to them!!! 

 

 

I gathered power into my body and in that instance—

I felt the structure of my body turned into something that wasn’t human.
I knew this was how it truly meant to obtain divinity.

“Can I ask you one thing?”
“What is it?”

I stared straight into Shiro’s eyes.

“You put a lot of effort to teach me how to win…… Shiro, do you really want to die that much?”
“……”

Shiro replied to my question with silence.
He was no longer showing a smile. His expression turned as still as a noh mask.

“……You see…… If you really want to have your answer…… I’ll tell you the moment I die.”
“Uh, isn’t that the same as saying that you don’t want me to know?”

I inwardly laughed the moment I had that mysteriously frivolous answer from him.
In contrast with Shiro’s expression, I was the one making a bold smirk.

“Then here I go now!!”
“Anytime you wish~~!!”

 

After that, we punched, kicked, gripped, threw each other. We did about everything that we could do with our bare hands. That was our battle.
It felt like we did so many things in such a long time, I felt it in my body. But I actually didn’t know if those exchanges happened in a second, a minute, or an hour in reality.
However, I did know that it didn’t take that long.

In front of me, with his violently ragged breathing, beaten signs all over his body, and large amount of blood coughing out from his mouth, Shiro sprawled on the ground while looking at me.

“……Ha, ahahahahaha……. Really, you’re so strong……. This is my defeat………. So I’m going to die…… This is one thing that can’t be helped……”

He was wrong. With my thorough apotheosis, I could definitely heal him.
But I wouldn’t do that.
Shiro had put us through so many troubles, and even dragged my wives into those troubles. I had no intention to forgive him.

“……That’s right…… I’ll attend your deathbed.”
“…….A-as I thought…… Wazu-kun, you’re really kind…… You stay by my side……until the very last moment……”
“Because I haven’t heard your reasons.”
“……That’s true…… You’re right……”

Along with those words, Shiro looked as if he was recalling all the moments that had passed in his life. He softly closed his eyes.

“……It’s not a complicated tale…… in this kind of world….. The mundane, common tale of a person…..

…….Born to a common family, just like anyone else……

…….Lived day by day, just like anyone else…….

…….Got his whole family assaulted, just like anyone else…….

…….Being the sole survivor, just like anyone else…….

…….Resented the world, just like anyone else……

…….Started all over again, just like anyone else……

…….Stayed alive, just like anyone else…….

…….It’s just something like that…….

…….Just with different……methods…….than someone else…….in his position……. Wazu-kun, if…….that happened to you……. What would… you do? ……….People precious to you…….got irrationally endangered……. Would you…….curse the perpetrator…….or this world instead?”

I couldn’t answer his question.
If one day something happened to Sarona and the others……I would definitely, undoubtedly, destroy this world……by using every last bit of my power.

Shiro called us [similar yet different]……
That was because I had Sarona and the others for me.
But Shiro had no one.
That was the only difference between us…… But that difference was what set us worlds apart.
If Sarona and the others didn’t have any feelings for me, and I met again with Aria in that condition, I would undoubtedly take the same path as Shiro.
I would curse the irrationality, I would probably strike down the hammer of judgment to this world……

But that was why I wouldn’t sympathize with Shiro.
Because Shiro and I were different…… Because we had already walked different paths in our lives……

“……”
“……ha, hahaha, ha….. So you won’t say anything to that…… But that is fine for me too…… Because we are [similar yet different]…… so we’re not the same……. we’re different…… and that’s why we keep crossing each other……”

Shiro laughed weakly.

“……..That’s why, this is…… my final parting gift………… Do your best…… to have a go……… against the very embodiment……of this world’s irrationality……”

Shiro slowly raised his arm over his head.

“……so much better if…… this irrational world…… can just disappear…..”

As if he gathered his final resolution, he balled his raised hand into a tight fist, and Shiro struck his own chest with that fist.

 

 

In that moment, there was a kachink sound from the spot he struck, a sound of something broken apart. And along with that sound,

Ghrooooooooooaar……

the ground was quaking. I felt something terrible emanating from the depth of the grotto.
Meanwhile, I confirmed that Shiro, from whom I could never look away, had really died. Only then I turned around to the depth of the grotto.

I had no words to say to him.
Because, no matter how similar we were, this guy was still my enemy……

 

 

 

I faced the depth of the grotto and started running towards it.

This is the noh mask:

Noh masks different orientations random

It’s a frozen mask that shows different emotions depending on the minute angle that the actor behind it shows you. The blog linked above talked a little about it.

If I make mistakes with the names, please let me know. 😀

Fight against Shiro (First)

 


? Prev       ? TOC       ? Next


Freud made this grotto to seal the Evil God inside, after all, which is sufficient by constructing a god barrier. So, in order to prevent anyone from moving in as well, it seems that he made a plain construction.
There’s really only a single path in, without even a branching path or traps and the likes.
Besides, it’s not dark even though it’s a grotto; if anyone notices well, there are glowing moss overgrowing the wall surface.

“This single path…… It’s just like me, huh……”
“……Ha? What the heck are you saying all of a sudden?”

As we headed deeper, Freud said something cryptic.
I narrow my eyes as I look to him on my side.

“In what way is this one-way path similar to you?”
“It’s representing my decision of casting away my divinity and keep living on as Wazu-sama’s butler from now on.”
“Yooo~sh!!! Let’s make a branching path now, immediately!! Let’s dig a new one open with my fist!! Or how about destroying it once and for all, huh!?”
“Please don’t, Wazu-sama.”

No duh, of course I won’t do that kind of thing.
Freud also seems to know that I won’t do that, so he only tries to stop me with his words.
The goddesses giggled at our antics from the back, and Mother Earth-sama said something outrageous.

“It’s just like Wazu-san and God of Creation are long-time bosom friends, from the way you talk.”

No, it’s not……

 

 

 

With that, we continued forward until an open space appeared.
It was wide enough to struggle in and in the center of the space, there was Shiro, kicking a pebble under his feet while looking bored.
When we enter Shiro’s sight, the corner of his lips turns up in joy as he opens his arms wide as if welcoming us warmly.

Yaa, yaa, yaa!! You’ve finally arrived!! I thought you were going to come here sooner, but you’re terribly slow, huh? Did you take some detours on the way? Oh well, it’s still within my allowable limit, though if you’re just a liiittle bit any later than this, the Evil God will already start to get resurrected, you know?”

In other words, the Evil God’s resurrection hasn’t begun yet……
I shouldn’t take Shiro’s words at face value, but he doesn’t have any reason to lie. I think.

“So here we go!!”

Shiro’s open arms clap in front of him, making a pan!! sound echo.

“Now, how should I push all the hindrances to go forward, hm~? Because I only have a business with Wazu-kun!!”

Shiro said that, while transporting behind us, then he opens his arms to one side, as if escorting the others to go further into the path.
That action makes Freud and the goddesses to look at me.
I nod once, telling Freud and the others to go ahead to the depth of the grotto with my eyes, earning their words in return.

“……Be careful.”
“I’ll pray for your safety……”
“Don’t force yourself.”
“Leave the Evil God to us.”
“……Zzz.”
“We’ll go first.”

Freud and the others said each of their pieces for me before getting past Shiro, heading towards the depth of the grotto.
Shiro, looking at their figures, call out to them.

“Oh, that’s right! The Goddess of Darkness is waiting inside, you know~!!”
『Yosshaa~!! I’ll definite destroy her~!!』

Most of the goddesses raised their voices, breaking into a run in fiercely high spirit.
When I look in that direction, the spot looks so pitiful that it’s scary……

 

 

“Now, with this, the hindrances are all gone.”
“Hindrances? You sound as if this is all going according to your plan, but….. Well, it really is, actually…… So it’s as you say. Then, what do you have in mind for leaving us alone in this 1-on-1 meeting?”
“Isn’t it obvious!? Of course to fight!! I told you, didn’t I? We are [similar but different]….. We can never recognize each other’s existences, we can never come into understanding…… That’s why we always strive to destroy each other!!”

While saying that, Shiro shows an amused laughter, clenching both of his hands to make fists, then clash those fists against one another, beckoning while looking at me as if saying ‘come if you dare’.

“……Are you not going to use any weapon?”

“Weapon? For beings close to deities like us, no weapon in this world would be worthy!! You understand that much, right? Moreover, you often said from a long time ago, that a fight between men has to be done with their fists!!”

The moment he finished saying those words, Shiro threw a punch at me.
I instantly avoided the fist, but Shiro’s speed of drawing closer to me was faster than my normal self.
I leaped behind right away to dodge his pursuit.

“That was way too close…… Fuh~…… It seems that you’ve reached a state where you can go through apotheosis. Your Status seems to be high, huh?”
“Obviously!! I don’t want to die, so I went through proper training, you know!! But nevermind that, you could still dodge, huh?!! Even though I’ve ended up killing countless people who looked negligent…… I can’t say anything except as expected of you!!!”
“Er, thanks for that, I guess…… Right, you reminded me, it was your fault that we’ve been dragged into a lot of troublesome things…..”

The incident of the elven village, Marnbondo royal family, Meru’s kidnapping, Haosui’s turning into a demon king, beastkin kingdom’s uprising, and when Princess Eris was captured in the Imperial Capital Iscoa….. Most likely, he had also done a lot of things on places where my eyes couldn’t see…… Honestly…… What a really troublesome jerk……

“Ahahaha!! Have your fighting spirit roused a little?”
“Yeah, I want to send you flying, and while I’m at it, I wish to send the Evil God flying too!!”

For the second time, Shiro spurred on me, throwing his fist forward. But I grabbed and stopped that fist and threw a punch to him in return.
Indeed, Shiro is fast, on the same level on my normal self.
However, it means that I’m taking it easy by staying at my normal self. If I exert a bit more strength, I have some room to be on the stronger side.
Shiro, whom I knocked away, hit against the wall and have some blood spurt from his mouth. But he never stops laughing like that.

“Ahahahahahaha!! As I thought, I couldn’t stay in this level, huh…? No matter how far I thought about it, I wasn’t originally built for combat after all…… If we’re in the normal states, I can’t cross our gap.”

While wiping the blood from his lips, Shiro stood up then murmured, “Watch me,” and went through apotheosis.

Isecai’s Notes:

In the past, the other translator put the title of Chapter 180 as “Counterfeit Beings”. I don’t know if it fits the context better, so I just put weblio’s translation, which is “similar but different (people)”.

Apotheosis = deification.

If I make mistakes with the names, please let me know. 😀

Goddess Assembly

 


? Prev       ? TOC       ? Next


Having left the port town city Motampe, I’m tailing Freud like that.
Within my sight, I peer further than Freud’s eyes, and there……

“……The mountain of the Middle Continent.”
“That’s right. The Evil God is sealed on on a grotto near the crater of that mountain. The residents of this world, no matter if they are human, beastkin, or any other races, no one ever gets close or even realizes that place. However, on top of the Goddess of Darkness, if we were to be found out, they will be there too, I suppose……”

So this kind of place did exist.
Indeed, while I stayed for a long time in the mountain, I was just an ordinary man, so naturally I wouldn’t notice anything in that place.

While running, I looked behind. Port town Motampe had now been reduced to just a speck in my sight.

“……Are you worried?”

As if he noticed my actions, Freud asked that while still facing the direction we were going to.
I turned my head back and faced the same direction as him. I know he couldn’t see me, but I still shook my head in response.

“Nah, I believe in them…… It’s okay, I’m sure they’ll be able to stay alive. That’s why I have to fly straight to the Evil God and go back home to their place…… I don’t really want to turn them into widows all of a sudden anyway.”
“You haven’t gotten married in the first place, though?”
“It’s the feeling that matters!!!”

While bantering with Freud like that, we aimed towards the grotto in the mountain’s crater……
I could see a horde of beasts on their route towards the port town Motampe, so for the time being, I obliterated them. It’ll be good if this can help the girls even if just for a little……

 

 

So there I was, climbing the mountain while destroying all the beasts that I passed by. It was almost a side trip or a detour, so when we reached the vicinity of the mountain’s crater, I saw Freud pointed in the direction of the grotto.
We were extraordinarily fast, but when we went in that direction, it felt like we didn’t get any closer no matter how long we took.
For the time being, that means I have to put more effort, right!!
While trying to break into the center in this fashion, my pocket started to lit up.
This light was caused by the five light orbs that flew to the air on their own. They turned into human shapes, and there were four pillar goddesses, while in the center there was a little girl who looked similar to the Goddess of the Ocean.

“……We’ve finally reached this point, haven’t we?”

The Goddess of Light said that with humble look on her face.
The other Goddesses also put an earnest face, when I looked at them carefully.
That kind of expression was something that I had never seen before; it showed how grave our current situation was. Oh well, I just never knew anything other than their stupid behaviors, so it bewildered me.

“It’s been a while, everyone.”

Freud destroyed the mood by bowing elegantly towards the Goddesses like a butler.
That action made the Goddesses wryly smiled.

“……You’re disgusting.”
“Ufufu…… who might this person be?”
“It’s been a while, God of Creation.”
“I wish he’ll disappear from my sight……”
“……Z z z.”

Oooi!! Freud-san, so you get that kind of attitude from the Goddesses too!?!!
Did you only cause troubles when you were a Deity?
Or instead, Goddess of War, isn’t your heart completely frozen now? This time I could only gape when I heard the responses from the other Goddesses, but is it really okay to do nothing!!?!
That kind of attitude, you treat this Freud like he’s some kind of waste!! Spitting out with that kind of ptooey noise, looking down as if he’s a dubious man, that’s enough for me!!
Aah, but I don’t want to see Goddess of War making that kind of expression!!
Kuu~, this dilemma!!! After this matter is solved, I’ve got to beat Freud up at least once!!
And to the Goddesses other than the Goddess of War, I want to tell them to look back at their own behaviors towards Freud with that kind of attitude.

“Ah, you’re all as harsh as before~”

As if he’s gotten used to the Goddesses’ attitude, Freud showed no concern at all.
Meanwhile, the Goddesses turned their faces to look at me.

“Being in this place like this means you’re determined to battle the Evil God…… First, let us express our gratitude to you.”
“This should be the problem of us the Deities…… If possible, we don’t want to trouble you with it. We’re very sorry……”
“Your cooperation means a lot, we’re sincerely glad…… Thank you. We will lend our hands as much as possible too.”
“Really, though, thank you so much…… Leave the Goddess of Darkness to us!! We’ll whip her rotten character good through a nice beating!!”
“…… Z z z.”

Each one of them send their gratitude to me…… I wonder why?
The Goddess of War’s words are very sincere but, the receiving the other Goddesses’ words makes me feel wary about the trap behind them……

“……Yeah, well, I understand your feelings, but…… Who is the girl that Goddess of the Ocean carrying around? Or rather, she’s been sleeping for a while now, is she going to wake up at all?”

When I point out who the girl being carried by the Goddess of the Ocean is, they all stare at me without blinking.

From her sky-like light blue hair, her closed eyes that I don’t know which color they are, to her splendid features that look like a young doll, they all come together in her petite figure. When I look at her, I think she looks even younger than Haosui and Kagane.

“Have we told you her name yet? This girl is Goddess of the Sky.”

Having said that, the Goddess of the Ocean turns that girl’s face towards me.
Well, since she’s with the rest of the Goddesses, I’ve though that was the case, but……
It’s just like what Goddess of Darkness said, she seems to sleep a lot, huh?
Out of curiosity, I poked the chewy soft cheek of the Goddess of the Sky, but the real one only tousled a bit while breathing out a “…..fumyu” and went back to sleep.
Oh no!! What’s this, this is too cute for the world!?!?
U-uh, I wonder if I can do that again……

“Wazu-sama? It’s time to set off……”

Shut up, Freud!! Don’t you dare to disturb my mission!!

 

 

…….Phew, let’s calm down first…..
Or rather, I came to understand something about myself now.
It’s obvious with Meru, but it seems that I’m weak towards the cute and small things……
Kuh!! I’ve come so far only to have that kind of weak point……
If the Evil God is that kind of cute and small creature…… I wonder if I can do this……

“Wazu-sama…… The Evil God is a tall and old man, you know?”

This is why I told you, Freud, stop reading my thoughts!!!
But thanks for that info. With this I can defeat the Evil God without reserve!!

I exhaled soundly, and then, with Freud, we took the Goddesses to enter the grotto……

Another Story 18: The Defensive Battle of Port City Motampe II

 


? Prev       ? TOC       ? Next


A/N: I’ve written it to the end, so I’ll post it until the end in one swoop. (Isecai: The author posted the last 10 chapters on the same day.)


Defending until their last breath, Sarona, Tata, Mao, and all the rest of the manpower from the townspeople are gathering in the east gate of port town Motampe. The beast horde is cramming the place to the brim, drawing near at the full speed as if they’re using the overflowing power of their body to the last drop.
Sarona, Tata, and Mao are tensing up against that view, and, as if trying to ascertain the others’ presence, they naturally hold hands with each other.

“…I think you all know already, but none of us is allowed to die for Wazu-san’s sake… All of us definitely has to make it out alive.”
“Of course, we will… Besides, after living in this town, we absolutely cannot let any unnecessary damage happens to those who fight with us here… Let’s spare nothing in our power to do our fight here.”
“First, let’s cut down the vanguards…… It’s time to show off the power that Lord Husband has been drilling into us!! His figure will bring courage to everyone in this place, I know it will.”

And so the three of them looks at each other and nods, standing with the vanguards while wielding their own weapons that they obtained from Wazu.

 

 

 

The first one to move was Tata.
She cast a barrier to protect everyone in this place.
Now, this barrier magic is Tata’s greatest pride.
Having no fighting power initially, she was taught by Naminissa and got told that she had a potential in barrier magic. She thought of how it could lend itself into Wazu’s strength and grew this power.
And this prided barrier now protects the people in this place.
That’s what it means to know what one ought to do with all of their power……

Outside Tata’s erected barrier, there are two people calmly standing.
Sarona and Mao. Both of them are looking at the huge hoard of beasts before their eyes while exchanging some words.

“Perhaps, that kind of number will be finished in no time if Wazu-san is here.”
“No duh. He’s our prided husband, afterall.”
“Then we, as his wives, have to give our utmost best so that he can be proud of us too.”
“Yeah, by exterminating all those beasts in front of us.”

 

Salona was the protector of an elven village.
Until now, she had been slaying magical beasts for many times. Still, the beasts currently in front of her eyes were far, far more numerous than the beasts that she had slew before, so many that she had lost count.
And yet, she didn’t feel spooked or anxious. There was an extraordinary power within her that she only managed to reach because of Wazu’s training, as well as comrades who held the same conviction around her, so there’s a slightly uplifting sensation exactly because they were in this kind of circumstances.

 

Mao trembled in delight.
There’s a horde of beasts that must be exterminated in front of her, and there are the townspeople who must be protected behind her. It’s a battlefield that she couldn’t find in a normal life when she was staying at beastkin kingdom. She really did love to fight. She didn’t know if it was just her temper or it was in a beastkin’s blood, but for her, the matter was unrelated. She simply can use all of the power that she possessed that way.
Mao only has love and gratefulness towards the training that Wazu did for her; she was just so happy to be able to display that power at last that she didn’t feel panic or the likes for the beast horde.

“”Let’s go!!””

With that, one with a slender sword and another one a dual sword gripped in their hands, they started running towards the beast horde.

 

 

 

The beasts were gathering around port town Motanpe’s west gate until they were packed to the brim.
However, those beasts couldn’t take another step forward from their fixed spot.
There was only one thing, a barrier, that hindered their advancement. That giant magic barrier protected the numerous knights in the west gate, as well as the townspeople who fought on their side.

The one who erected the barrier, Naminissa, was calmly standing in the core of the barrier.
Naminissa’s barrier that Wazu trained her for was huge and solid that it wasn’t strange to have it push away that large number of beasts without allowing any single one breaking in.
However, that’s precisely why it’s not a run-of-the-mill job to preserve that strong barrier with ease. Normally, to preserve a barrier that would eat up the beasts’ offensive power, Naminissa found it too difficult to split her mind to do something else. She appears to be calm, but the sweat running from her forehead betrayed that burden.
However, no matter how much burdened she was, she had absolutely no intention to reel in.
Because she prayed that not a single person who fought alongside with her would lose their life……
Feeling nothing but love and gratefulness for the training that she personally received from Wazu that enabled her to be this powerful, Naminissa naturally smiled.

“Naminissa! Next one!!”

The voice that called for Naminissa was Narelina’s.
Surrounding her were the knights who adjusted their breaths by huge exhales, and the remaining of the beasts who already lost their lives in her hands.

Suu~…… Hahh~……. Let’s go!! Princess!!”

Calling out to Naminissa, she opened one part of the barrier and let the beasts flow like an avalanche into the barred area from that part.
And then, after she had let enough numbers of beasts in, Naminissa closed off the barrier again.

She stopped the advancement of the beasts with her barrier, opened the barrier for a short window of time, let the beasts in before closing it off, and then those beasts were assaulted by Nalerina and the knights right away.
They did that continuously.

Haaaaaaaaaaaat!!

Along with that shout, Narelina slashed at the beasts in her full armor.
The large blade in her hands was engulfed in flames, lopping off the beasts who came into the barrier like an avalanche in an instant.
The surrounding knights also joined up, many at once, to tackle each beast. Then, the exhausted knight was replaced with other knights, dealing with the crisis with flawless execution.

Inside the full body armor, Narelina laughed.
If she were to see themselves before they met Wazu, if they didn’t run away the moment they saw the beast, they would have died right then and there…… however, she understood that that kind of scenario wouldn’t happen, because for the sake of those she loved, she had resolved herself.
That’s why, with her cunningly fastest, strongest power that she gained from Wazu’s training, without overestimating herself or being self conceited, she obliterated the beasts……

 

 

 

Haosui, after Meru climbed on top of her head, put themselves on top of the wall encircling the town.
The beasts, who understood that they couldn’t destroy the barrier beneath her, tried to enter the town by smashing down the parts of the wall that wasn’t covered by the magic barrier.

“……Shall we go, then?”
Kyui!!”

Haosui pats Meru’s head as she spoke, and Meru replied in a cry before firmly sticking to Haosui.
When Haosui felt that sensation, she leaped down from the top of the wall and landed right in the middle of the beast horde below. In that moment, with speed so fast that it was invisible to the naked eyes, a group of beasts had lost their lives before they could figure out what was happening with their bodies.

Feeling a little happy, the corner of Haosui’s lips were lifted.
Wazu’s strength was unrivaled by anyone, so strong that no one could assist him. However, that kind of him entrusted the protection of this city to them.
That means Wazu relied on them about this.
The girls whom Wazu saved must feel happy of this opportunity to return the favor, using the raid mission to exterminate one beast after another……

 

 

 

In front of Kagane, horde of beasts came surging in from the vast sea.
However, it only makes Kagane breath heavily as if she was turned on as she rattled on.

Kitakitakitaaa~!! It’s here! It’s finally heeere~!! I’m seething, my blood is seething uuuup~!! Before me, there are beasts who comes to destroy the city; behind me, there are those whom I need to protect, the townspeople, and my own life too, must not fall for Oniichan’s sake….. If a girl doesn’t get fired up from this, what use is she going to be!?!!”

Shouting those words, magic power starts welling up from the tip of Kagane’s staff.
The magic power is shaping up, bringing forth an infinite number of light spheres around her. Kagane pointed the staff towards the sea.
The moment that staff faced the sea, a beam of light as thick as a man’s arm was thrust into the sea. The impact of that beam caused the sea to splash apart like a giant tidal wave.
The waves caused by that light beam hit the air, while the beasts which were still alive were caught in more and more smaller beams projected from the light spheres. They lost their lives.

“I won’t let you take even a single step closer than this!!”

In her heart, Kagane could only feel her love for her brother, Wazu.
With that as her pillar, Kagane could do her best, she could become her strongest, she was invincible.
She uses her Cheat without holding back anything…..

 

 

 

Even so, before the girls’ eyes, the number of beasts keeps rapidly rising up……
