Hi Everyone, Sorry for the delay, assignment and interview have been piling up, i’ll be releasing more over the next few days
「Then, I’ll help
you, but… where is this Evil Spirit King fella?」
So I asked the
『 …I’m sorry…
Because I have started the preparation to produce a new gatekeeper, my
consciousness is leaving…』
「You’re kidding me!?」
still haven’t heard any detailed explanation you know!? Just where is he!? The
Evil Spirit King!
『 …I’m sorry… I’m
sorry… Well then, I’ll leave it to you——』
「Eh!? Ah, Hold up!」
Even though I tried
to call it out for several times, in the end the Netherworld never answered me
difficulty suddenly rise? I don’t know where is this Evil Spirit King, but
before all that aren’t I’m lost?」
This, if you think normally, I’m the end already?
「The development is
too rapid I can’t follow it…」
absurd and messy feeling… reminds me of 【Forest of Endless Sorrow】.
about it again, quite the excellent feat I pulled back then, surviving a place
like that after getting casted away without receiving any explanation! My
Status for Luck and such was only 1 though!
As I was stumped
about what to do in the middle of this desperate-looking situation, the skill 『World’s
Eye』’s Enemy Search unexpectedly sensed a presence.
When I turned my
eyes towards its direction, what greeted me were a pair of eyes that didn’t
radiate light on a pitch black body, and white teeth that peeked out from its
hanging mouth, a terribly horrifying entity was staring at me.
the hell is that!? Which hell’s hole did it appear from!?
frightening being really did appear suddenly within my Skill’s search range.
「W, what is it… Who
the hell are you… Rather, your gaze will make a hole on me if you——」
The moment I stopped
in mid-sentence, the enigmatic creature’s eyes glowed, then lasers fired at me.
While I was
unintentionally spook in a Kansai dialect, I bent my body to a [く] character,
then dodged the laser.
「A hole was
literally about to be made in me though!? What the hell are you!? Having such
an eerie face and all!」
「I told you stop
creature ignored my words and shot several lasers at me.
And I avoided all of
them with weird postures.
「Hold on, what the
hell are you really!?」
I exercised the
skill 『Advanced Appraisal』.
『Evil Spirit Lv: ???』
「So you are
the evil spirit!?」
the level is unknown! It’s that, I haven’t seen something like that ever since
the UMA from the Monster Sales Outlet operated by Balzas in Telbert! That UMA…
what happened to it I wonder?
before that. Evil spirits are, so to speak, a spirit, so that allow them to
suddenly appear inside 『World’s Eye』’s Enemy Search?
that was the case, then the Evil Spirit King also hold the same ability… won’t
it be impossible to find him? Finally it’s the endgame isn’t it!
I unsheathed the 『Sword
of Swirling Hatred (Black)』 and 『Sword of Overflowing Compassion (White)』 that rested
on my hip and brandished them.
「If you’re an evil
spirit, then, sorry about this, I’ll defeat you.」
That probably wasn’t
heard by my opponent, but for the time being I gave it a heads up, then leapt at
the evil spirit.
I recalled about
having to control my power to some degree back when I was about to strike at
the Labcoat man back in the Barbadora Magic Academy, so I swung Black with an
amount of power that wouldn’t deal damage to world. In addition of that, I also
had the skill 『Endless Hell/Avici Hell』, so it would be okay. …Having to
consider about the World’s fare, my head is strange.
With my eyes looking
in the distance, I was about to connect the attack to the evil spirit.
The evil spirit
couldn’t catch up with my speed, still looking at the place where I was until a
And then, when Black
touched the evil spirit’s body, it was then.
The evil spirit’s
body texture was springy, the moment Black touched it, the impact shook the
body as if it formed a wave.
Just when I thought
the impact had reached the bottom of evil spirit’s body, I could confirm that
it suddenly directed away then headed towards me.
The moment I
affirmed it, a bad hunch went through me, so I hastily moved my feet from
A tremendous impact
An outrageously huge
crater was gouged out in the place where I stood just a little while ago.
「Oi, you’re kidding
Cold sweat streamed
on my cheek.
The evil spirit only
stood on the spot as if nothing had happened.
「That… No matter how
you slice it, that was my attack that bounced back just as is, wasn’t it?」
My attack was redirected,
and even more than that, the opponent was uninjured.
To an outsider’s
perspective, it might seem that I was afraid of such opponent.
However, my head was
filled with something else.
「So my attack is
There might be
people who thought of it as “Now, of all time?”, but now I got to experience
the threat of my own attack, I was made to realize the abnormality of my attack
even more strongly.
attack doesn’t work? That can go to hell for all I care! More than that, I’m
shivering because I have been swinging around disaster-class attacks here and
「Crap… I have to
think the way to use my power more seriously from now on… 」
The evil spirit’s
atmosphere seemed like turned into a sullen one.
Actually, it had an
eager air around it before, looking forward for when I fell into despair after
my attack didn’t work, but apparently the evil spirit sensed I was being
bothered by other things instead. It’s a problem of life and death for me
However, it seemed
like the evil spirit didn’t take a liking to it, so it rapidly shot a laser at
hey!? Calm down a bit!」
Without lending me
an ear, the evil spirit didn’t loosen its attack.
the time being, physical attacks don’t work, but… what about magical attacks?
I then used a fire
attribute beginner magic, 『Fire』.
An outrageous mass
of fire that couldn’t be called a beginner magic at all fired off at the evil
And then, the evil
spirit stopped shooting laser, received the 『Fire』 magic with its body, then as
expected, it bounced back right at me.
「Oi oi… Just what
the hell should I do about this.」
can I fight against an opponent who nullifies physical and magical attacks?
despite facing that kind of opponent, my head was clear.
However, I suddenly
noticed other presences, so while I didn’t turn my attention away from the evil
spirit before me, I turned my eyes, then…
spirits were gazing at me.
I’m terrified you know!? In the first place I can’t stand ghosts and any kind
of horror you know!? I want to go home! I don’t have a home to go though!
As I unintentionally
floated a cramped smile, all the evil spirits shot their lasers.
「That won’t even be
As I hurriedly
crouched down, numerous lasers passed over my head.
However, with me
avoiding it, the lasers would only hit another evil spirits and repeatedly
bounced back, so even if I wanted to stand up there was only lasers flying
「Isn’t this really
the endgame already!? Isn’t it impossible to defeat the Evil Spirit King-sama
in this situation!?」
I shouted while
holding my head so it wouldn’t get hit.
how can I defeat them in the first place!?
「I’m sick of it!
HALP!! HAALLP MMEEEEE!!!!!!!」
When I voiced my SOS
that wouldn’t reach for anyone, an answer came from a place I couldn’t tell.
And then, I could
hear the muffled sound of the evil spirit.
Turning my eyes
towards it, from around the chest? of the evil spirit, a sword resembling my 【Sword
of Swirling Hatred (Black)】 I had protruded out.
When that sword
pulled out from the evil spirit, that evil spirit turned into particles of
light then disappeared.
As I was astonished
by that sight, a single ikemen appeared.
A silvery long hair divided from the middle…
Was it called curtained hair? At any rate, he had that hairstyle, and his
emerald like eyes were looking at me gently.
「Long time no see,
I don’t have any ikemen like this as my acquaintance you know?!
confused me, the ikemen walked closer.
When I look closer,
he was wearing a jet black robe resembling mourning clothes and a good quality
shirt which was somewhere familiar to me. It was the outfit befitting for
Surprised by the
ikemen’s arrival, the surrounding evil spirits were agitated.
As my voice
reflexively rose from seeing their state, all of a sudden, a jet black spear
penetrated several evil spirits.
「Should we join the
「I’m sorry… I can’t
「Ahahaha! True that…
Then, go wait with the maid over there.」
The voices of a
carefree man and a gentle woman came into my ears.
「Uun… It’s a battle
after a long time, but the opponent is like that… Good grief, how troublesome.」
Turning my sight,
there was a man with black hairs and eyes and a calm expression on him.
Right near to him,
there were a woman who wore an apron and another one who wore a maid dress.
Putting that aside,
I was taken aback by the man with black hairs and eyes.
As for why, from the
man’s forehead, two splendid horns were growing out. That was the same feature
with Bell and his group I met before. That means… a demon? If I look
closely, there’s also a horn on the woman in apron’s forehead… .
Although the physique wasn’t as good as the
ikemen, the black-haired black-eyed well-featured demon wrapped himself in
another gorgeous attire based on black, with a deep crimson mantle hovered
「Now, well then——Farewell.」
When the demon man
lightly spread his hands, countless jet black spears rose to the sky, then flew
to the evil spirits.
Even though my
attack was absorbed, the Ikemen’s and the demon man’s attacks easily penetrated
the evil spirits, gradually reducing their number.
That sight was
precisely like that of a 『Demon Lord』 .
「We’re going as
「I’ll do my best!」
Even though I couldn’t
keep up with the current situation, a party of four made their appearance this
time and started to attack on the evil spirits.
One was a big brawny
man wearing a heavy armor, defending from the evil spirit’s lasers with his
The blue haired
young man who wore plain clothes and brown close just like a traveller, was
attacking the evil spirits with a sword in the gap where the big man was
defending the attack.
equipment resembling a hunter, a red haired woman with unyielding spirits, ranging
down the evil spirits with her bow and arrows.
The last member, a
blonde girl in pure white robe, bestow magic on the big guy and his group,
boosting their offensive power, while also utilizing offensive magic to defeat
the evil spirits.
I could no longer
tell what is what.
There was also a
fact that my attack didn’t work, even though the attack of the people who
suddenly appeared worked just fine, but even more than that——.
「Who the hell are
who!? Just when I thought they appeared, they instead helped me… Wait a minute.
If I think about it carefully, this situation in itself is scary! This, won’t
come with money right!? I have a lot money, but there’s only fear in my heart
When I noticed it,
the evil spirits that surrounded me were completely obliterated by the people
who suddenly appeared.
I was scared by the
horror before, but now I was scared due the worry of my money being extorted.
feelings, the ikemen came to the place where I was.
「It’s the first time
we meet when I’m in this form, isn’t it.」
「Y, yea… Umm … Who
might you me? Is it money? Is it money that you want?」
Seiichi-dono, aren’t you misunderstanding something?」
The ikemen floated a
troubled face. Un, no matter what they did, ikemen will stay as an ikemen
huh! I’m jealous!
As I was thinking of
such a thing, the maid girl who stood near the woman in the apron walked over
towards the ikemen.
Seiichi-sama doesn’t appear to recognize Zeanos-sama…」
「Mu? That would be
The ikemen nodded
after got convinced. Rather, did she just say Zeanos…?
As I was staring at
him with a doubt in mind, he elegantly bowed.
「I shall name myself
once again. ——The head of Zeford Duke household, Zeanos Zeford. It was since
the【Forest of Endless Sorrow】, wasn’t it? Seiichi-dono.」
said so with a gentle smile.
In response to that,
Was shocked with my
mean! I mean!? It’s Zeanos you know!? The one I fought in the 【Forest of
Endless Sorrow】, Zeanos the Darkness Noble you know!?
was only a skeleton at that time! But now what? A super ikemen!? Not even I
know what am I talking about!
then, the girl beside him is…?
Maybe I had wore my
heart on my sleeve, the maid girl also bowed with a polished movement.
「A pleasure to meet
you. I’m someone who serves Zeanos-sama, Mary.」
I expected! I have a feeling it’ll be her!
The gallant maid
Mary whom I know from reading Zeanos’ life.
As my jaw was about
to drop from all the surprise, the people who had been defeating the evil
spirits with Zeanos gathered up.
「Seems like you
safely met each other, Zeanos.」
「Yes… I’m glad it
was on time. I appreciate your help.」
「Do not mind. We
also regained our ego, and it’s not bothersome offering some help.」
As the demon man and
the traveller like man talked with Zeanos, they suddenly looked at me.
「You must be
「U, umm… Why do you
know about me?」
「That’s because I
heard it from Zeanos and those two people.」
「We fully understand
your current condition, Seiichi. Because the existence named Seiichi, we’re
able to regain our ego after all. Those kind of people are gathering together
and came to help you.」
「I, I see…」
should I do. I can’t follow it with my stupid brain.
other words, what does that mean?
Looking a me, the
demon man broke into a smile then taught me.
「Much like the evil
spirits we defeated just now, we’re also originally wandering this Netherworld
as a ghost who had no ego. However, because an existence named you came into
the Netherworld, we who more or less have a fate with you become able to bear
know Zeanos. I directly fought him after all.
I don’t know anyone other him….
As I thought so, the
demon man began his introduction.
「For the time being,
shall I introduce myself? I am Lucius Arsahl. The first Demon Lord… is it easy
to understand if I say it like that.」
hell I know!? The first Demon Lord!? Isn’t it skipping too much from the
no, calm down. It’s not decided yet that he’s the genuine one!
「You may not aware
of this, but at the time when the country of Demon still hadn’t existed, I
founded a country where everyone could live in harmony along with reliable
companions, like the Black Dragon God. All the other companions have died due
to their life span, but I wonder how the Black Dragon God is faring.」
the real deal!
「Well then, it’s our
turn. I’m Abel. Abel Stardia. Tentatively, I’m a Hero.」
「I’m his companion,
Garus Roccard. A Warrior.」
「I’m Anna Ryuld the

of Endless Sorrow】!?

As I was at six and
seven, the woman wearing apron introduced herself with a bitter smile on her.
「I am Nachuriahna
Gleend. I’m not some amazing person in particular, and even they say the fate
we share, I can’t think of any of it…」
I also haven’t any faintest idea as for who Nataliana-san is.

Nataliana-san, I don’t know about her in the slightest bit. Just where did our

in wonder, Lucius said with a smile.
「Now then, we have
finished introducing ourselves, but there are still people you have to meet.」
「P, people I have to
「Say… Is it fine,
Lucius-san? For, umm… acting together with Abel and his party… 」
The impact was too
strong for my mental that I forgot it, but Lucius-san was the first Demon Lord
and Abel and his party were heroes.
they will clash with each other….
「That’s fine. I was
certainly burning with anger that time, but after I fought against them who
defeated me, I became to know that the Heroes are also another victim.」
「That was also the
case for us, after we defeated the Demon Lord at that time, we were betrayed by
Pierre, and only then we figured out the real appearance of the Demon Lord. We
were too indulged in ignorance…」
「…Let’s drop it
here! Rather than that, I said there are people whom you have to meet, didn’t
「Eh? Ah, yes. Err…
Who might they be?」
「No need to be panic,
they’re coming soon. It was dangerous before, so I placed a guard on them and
told them to stay away. They’re way weaker than Natalia and the maid girl after
As I got even more
confused, I followed Zeanos’ group while being urged by them.
「… Waited for you.」
What stood there,
was the Treasure Box I met in the dungeon when I defeated the Black Dragon God.
「W, why are you

「You still have that

More than that, quick meet… 」
「I just can’t
understand any of this!」

see Sandman or Clever Monkey which I defeated as well….
As I proceed with a
question mark floating above my head, I turned my eyes to the people who
waiting before me, and thus my mind went blank.
「We missed you…」
「Have you been doing
The people who were
waiting for me——Were my own parents.
