The Heroes vs
Seiichi, had been in uneventful days since the day I returned from the
Even now, what I was seeing before me was the sight of Beatrice-san personally tutoring each student according to the papers she tailored for each individual, teaching the smart students and the not-so-bright ones, like Agnos, how to conquer the upcoming exam.
of me to say this, but I could do nothing if it came to honest studying, so all
I could do was observe from the sideline. I’m sorry for my incompetence.
the way, my Parents’ group had departed for Terveil a while ago.
was thinking that they could just teleport there, since they had the Treasure
Box who owned a Transfer Magic set with them, but apparently, they wanted to
take their time and enjoy the scenery.
in this world which was obviously different from our homeland Japan, a light
travel wouldn’t be as much “light” as it sounded, with the dangers lurking in
every corner. However, pride is still, pride.
mean, not only do they have a Hero and the First Demon King with them,
they even got the Heroes’ mentor travelling with them, you know? Name one
person who can possibly beat this group, if you can.
addition, it seemed like my parents were anticipating this travel with delight,
they even said this before we parted.
It’s been a while since we had a trip! Let’s do some Food Tourism!』
right. Also, if we did get back to Earth, we’d have some hot topic to talk
about from this world, don’t you think?』
let’s just enjoy the trip, okay? Ah, Seiichi. Do you have a camera with you?』
really couldn’t be more impressed by my parents who enjoyed their time in
another world. No, really, they’re superb.
it was disheartening to be parted with them, be it for a short while or not.
things had changed… now, I could meet them whenever I wanted to.
was normal and obvious, but it was more than anything.
wasn’t that worried about their trip, but I kept recalling my last conversation
Let me thank you once again. Thank you very much.』
I should be the one who’s thanking here. Thank you.』
Well, I wouldn’t worry if it’s you, Seiichi-dono, but… let me give you a warning.
——Be wary of the Kaizer Empire.』
would be great if I was just being too overcautious, but… In case my deduction are
correct, then I would say that the current Emperor of the Kaizer Empire is a
do you mean…?』
I have no evidence to support it, I can’t say much. However, please note what I
the end, I wasn’t told anything substantial, but I gained the insight that the
Kaizer Empire would be more of a hassle than I thought.
I was uncharacteristically thinking of hard things, I heard Agnos rising his
your score did get better from before, but why does the 『GUTS』 still appear in
the answer sheets?」
‘coz everything’ll be good with 『Guts』in it!」
no way that’s true!」
Agnos’ mock exam result was getting better than before, but he was like usual,
trying to solve everything with 『guts.』
looking at Agnos, held her head in agony.
were taught this much, and yet why did you still answer everything with the
word 『Guts』… Are you perhaps an idiot? Or am I the idiot one here, sparing my
time for an idiot like you…? 」
that way too harsh!?」
it’s the fact, isn’t it? Or rather, Irene, are you okay not studying at all?」
was dumbfounded, for he got completely side-casted so casually.
who was inquired by Helen, then swept her hair gracefully then answered with a
smile plastered on her face.
much is obvious. For this perfect and unparalleled me, there is no blindspot in
regard of academic strength.」
part you’re having hard time with?」
of such thing. If you’re oh so persistent to know, maybe perhaps the fact that
I find it hard to write a perfectly balanced handwriting?」
not even a part of the study, is it…」
to Irene’s overtly abnormal response, Helen once again held her head.
Helen-chan~. What do you think about mine~?」
Let me see… Un, Rachel, you’re getting better each time you’re doing it.」
at Rachel with her fluffy smile, Helen too broke into a wide smile.
hey! What about me, what about me!?」
to give her answer sheet was Flora, and after Helen took a look at it….
do you mean normal!? It hurts, you know!?」
I’m just saying you’re normally getting better. It’s not like you’re
exponentially getting better, you’re just normally growing.」
weird… I should’ve been happy that my score is getting better, but being told
as Normal doesn’t make me happy at all..!」
Flora. Being normal is the best, you know. Why don’t you first experience a
visit to the Guild Headquarter in Terveil! You’ll see how great it is to be
the sight of those perverts in the Guild Headquarters, my eyes were
looking into the long distance. It was when Saria suddenly raised her voice.
a thing, as it turned out, Saria had been studying too, using the exam sheet
that was especially tailored for her.
regard of reading and writing, she was already good at it ever since she read
Abel’s diary in the 【Forest of Endless Love and Sorrow】. …It was a
good thing Abel doesn’t know Saria and I have been reading his diary.
good, Saria-san. It’s all correct.」
Seiichi! Look, look~!」
aren’t you awesome!」
having Helen checked her answer, Saria showed me her paper with a smile that
reached her ears.
aura of 『Praise me!』she exerted was felt in obvious manner, even if she didn’t
say anything, so I patted her head with a smile on me.
was studying too, with the paper that was also especially tailored for her, but
in contrast with Saria, she was glaring a hole into it.
don’t understand… I don’t understand a bit… why is this thing making me choose
which one is the 『Medicinal Herb』…! Aren’t they all the same once they get into
what did you say!?」
Rurune’s absurd remark, Olga-chan softly said something under her breath. No,
she’s not wrong though.
addition, on Rurune’s paper, while the other was indeed a Medicine Herb, the
other one was clearly a poisonous mushroom. There’s no way they’re anything
similar. You eat that one and you’ll die on the spot.
the midst of these progressing study, there were students who really had no
change in particular.
I assume you’re doing fine?」
I’m not the same as a certain musclehead, after all.」
can hear that, you shit!」
I’m just saying musclehead. Not a word of it is addressed to you, is it not?」
what, so I just misunderstood it~」
it is you that I’m talking about.」
fucking kill you!」
two are chummy as usual, huh. Oi.
Blued didn’t need any additional tutoring, all he needed to do was keeping his
score as high as it was. The same could be said for Bead.
only problem was, if I had to say, Leon. His answer sheet was filled with
apologies like usual. Not only Beatrice-san and I, even Helen had gave up on
his case and put her hands away.
have no clue how other classes were faring, but our class was steadily
advancing with the Exam in mind.
certain day after several days of studying with Helen as our core student.
I was heading towards the classroom as usual, I noticed that the class was a
lot more noisy than normal.
are more people, in the class.」
Now you said it…」
pointed so after she stuck her neck out to the door. After I checked it with
the skill 『World’s Eye』, I could tell there were a lot more people inside the
classroom than the whole members of Class F. 『Life Force』 sense that
Zeanos taught me in Netherworld also showed the same result, that there were
more people than usual.
now, we wouldn’t know what was happening until we entered, so I along with Olga
stepped into the classroom.
I did so, I saw Agnos and other male students were acting as if protecting the
girls, and they were facing a certain group of people.
I. Told. You… Don’t make me repeat myself.」
That’s my words you fucking shits!」
Oi cunts, who do you think you’re talking to?」
group of people they were facing was… to my surprise, the heroes from my
for some reason, the only ones present were the male heroes.
the Heroes, you know? We’re here to save you lots from the Demon King.
You sure are looking down at us, knowing who we are.」
if I care, you shit-for-brains! Don’t ya think you can get away with anything,
just coz your shitty Hero title!」
would be you lot, don’t have any idea of your standings? You sure talk big for
some small fries who cheated during the In-School Tournament. You think
bastards like you have any chance against us Heroes?」
could tell this was one real stormy atmosphere, but I didn’t see any reason why
this happened at all. Not even the reason what are these Heroes doing here. …Though
I guess Kannazuki-senpai would come charging here without reason.
addition, it was unfortunate that both Beatrice-san and Al weren’t here, since
they were taking the role of a teacher.
way, I can’t believe they’re thinking our feat during the In-School Tournament
as a cheat…
I had made them able to use magic, and that very act would fall in the gray
zone. However, Agnos and his classmates didn’t even use Magic to begin with. It
had nothing to do with my power. It was purely their strength.
now, I’d walk towards Agnos.
with the fuss?」
right in between both side as to part them, Agnos’ face started to gleam while
the Heroes’ frowned.
my gaze on the Heroes’ group, I could recognize Daiki, Kobayashi, Aoyama, and
the lot who used to bully me back then. Really, what are they doing here?
the past, these faces would make me shrunk in fear, but after I went against
them during Saria and the girls’ case, I only felt nothing.
guessed that Aoyama and his lot remembered me, their gaze had been nothing
short of a glare.
paid no mind to these gazes and asked them.
is the Class F’s classroom… What business do the Heroes have with us?」
much, we only have one little request, you see?」
one to answer my question wasn’t one of the Kobayashi’s group, but someone
behind the three.
carefully into him, I recognized him as one of the Idol Group back on Earth…
Kisaragi Masaya senpai.
didn’t know him personally, but Kisaragi-senpai was the direct opposite of me,
a great person who, truthfully speaking, had no shortcomings.
had a neat smile sitting on his face, but for a reason or another, I could feel
something wicked behind that smile.
I was pondering so, still with the smile, Kisaragi-senpai continued.
much, we only asked these girls to be ours.」
I couldn’t understand the meaning behind his words, an exclamation escaped my
it did, next to opened their mouth Tougou Rentou senpai and Ooyama Tsuyoshi
senpai, the other members of the same Idol Group.
why do you look so surprised? We told you to hand these girls over to us.」
you didn’t want be hurt, just obediently hand them to us, you hear?」
some reason, Ooyama-senpai punched his hand with a grin plastered on his face.
as if to be on the same page with him, Aoyama’s gang was grinning with dirty
at these Heroes, Blued who was the second prince of the Kaizer Empire, the
nation who summoned them, opened his mouth.
have nothing to say that bastards like you lot are the heroes. But don’t you
even dare to think that this kind of despotism will go away without notice.」
Heroes were told thus by Blued, but after a period of aligning their faces, the
Heroes started to laughed their bowel.
You sure said something funny. You think I don’t know? You’re the Empire’s
second prince, aren’t you? You’ve got a commoner’s blood running in you, don’t
only you’re a royal with mudblood, you’re just another dropout who has no
you guys are just commoners too, okay? At least, there were no royals or
anything back when we were in High School, weren’t it?
Kannazuki-senpai who was the princess of a huge conglomerate wasn’t a royal.
are you mocking others, when you yourself is just another commoner? It’s too
stupid I couldn’t even say anything.
I was being speechless listening to their bull, Kisaragi-senpai looked down at
me then spoke.
what I’m getting at is that you dropouts can be of use to us Heroes. You males
will be our gopher, while the females will service us. …In particular, I’m
interested in you. You have the honor of serving me.」
the end of Kisaragi-senpai’s finger was Saria.
For you lot who have no future, wouldn’t it be an honor to serve us Heroes? It
was lucky that the girls in the Class F are pleasant to the eye, though that’s
the only redeeming quality. We will give you lots of attention.」
immediately replied with a smile.
smile was stiffen by it.
Do you think lowly dropouts like you have any voice in this? To top it, you’ll
have the honor to serve this me, you know? And you’re——」
the second time in a row, Saria said so with a smile.
receiving it, Kisaragi-senpai’s smile started to crumble.
though we’ve been trying to be humble…」
you call that being humble!? THAT!?
don’t get it… What makes you so persistent…」
because I love Seiichi so much!」
Saria’s words, the Heroes were showing questionable expressions. By the way,
mine was red with blush. I mean, it’s embarrassing to hear.
thought they’d figure it was me since my name was mentioned, but it seemed
like, to them, I wasn’t someone worth to be remembered. They didn’t notice it
was the same Seiichi.
a moment, smile was absent from Kisaragi-senpai’s face, but it soon returned
with a black intention behind it.
see, I see… So you’re saying you like this Seiichi fellow?」
a shame. This bastard doesn’t have a chance against us, you know?
Comparatively, we’re way better. Not only we’re heroes, we’re also Idols.」
was trying to sell himself high, but Saria instead took interest in something
of Kisaragi-senpai whose smile started to twitch, Tougou-senpai spoke to Saria.
are people like us. People who look good and are competent. And even among
these idols, we’re standing on the top.」
sure said that in the face of Blued, who’s clearly above them on that front. In
addition, top class they said?
on Earth, that might be true. But having seen Blued and that Robert kid from
Class S, one could clearly tell the difference in class. What is it again,
their overflowing elegance? Of course, that included their look.
received Tougou-senpai’s explanation, Saria smiled innocently as though she
finally got it.
means Seiichi’s the bestest best!」
to expect to get that response, the heroes were once again dumbfounded. No,
well, me included.
even heeding to this atmosphere, Saria’s smile was just as strong.
because Seiichi is the coolest and the strongest! Isn’t that right, Seiichi!」
and you’re passing the hot ball to me now!?」
who didn’t think will be having to bite the bullet now of all time,
could only voice out my shock.
I did so, Kisaragi-senpai and his groups finally realized that the Seiichi
Saria had been mentioning was indeed me, and their glare couldn’t be less of
his gaze rudely licking me all over, Kisaragi-senpai snorted.
What a dirty robe…. Also, you must be so hideous that you bothered to hide your
Kisaragi-senpai, the other heroes also started to laugh.
the Class S’ teacher, also laughed when he looked at my equipment, but they
sure do laugh at it. Even though it has such a broken stat. Is that what so
Since my 『Clairvoyance』 skill doesn’t show any response, it seems like
nobody used 『Appraisal』 on it, but… why they don’t? Did they judge they have no
my mind was wandering along those lines, I suddenly realized Saria’s hand was
reaching my hood.
not true! Seiichi is cool I tell you!」
it was completely an easygoing action of Saria, and due to the fact I had lower
my guard, Saria swept my hood off my face.
moment, I could see their faces stiffen into stone.
that was, if not short of, a wonderful sight.
Kisaragi-senpai with his twitching smile and sweat that kept running voiced out
at least… n, not… not hideous… per se…?」
hmph… Hoo… 」
h-hhheeeh… H, hhheheheh he looks… a bit more proper… than expected, is all…」
ones who showed that reaction weren’t Kisaragi-senpai’s group only, but also
upon their riddled faces, Agnos started to speak out.
is it! Isn’t my Aniki just the best!」
well? L, let’s put aside his looks… C, competence! Right, competence!! We as Heroes
and Idols have our exceeding competence. Compared to us, what can he do? Huh!?」
understand what they mean by the Heroes’ competence, but Idols’? What are they
supposed to be? Singing? Dancing?
I was lost in useless thoughts when Kisaragi-senpai’s words revitalized the
others enough to open their mouth.
that’s right! I bet you got nothing you can do!」
bet you were cheating during the tournament back then! We’re way stronger than
you are, both in magic and in swordplay!」
Get out of our face if you don’t want to get hurt!」
and his peers were frowning when they were exposed to these unpleasant barks.
what I really worry about was something completely diffrent.
really, how can you be feeling so domineer about it?
had the right to be proud of their Idols status. They might have put their
effort behind it, or they might not, none of it I did understand.
if you think about it again, so what if they become a Hero?
put aside whether the Demon Lord is really a bad guy or not, or is it egoistic
to be prideful for being chosen as the Heroes, isn’t it weird to be so
domineering about it? Or am I the odd one?
neck was twisted as I was thinking so. Then, Saria, again, declared thus with
still with her smile.
got it wrong! Seiichi is stronger!」
was honestly happy when Saria said so, but same couldn’t be said for
Kisaragi-senpai and his goons.
Their faces were twisted for a moment, but soon turned into a dark, nasty grin.
to think of it, you sure fucking looking down at us back then in the
you don’t know? We’re the only ones who are allowed to be strong. And
They sure got off with the most ridiculous reason.
「…Well, fine… If you’re saying that your strength is above ours… why don’t we see that now!? 」
Aniki, watch out!」
Kisaragi-senpai emerged flame from both of his hands then launched them at me.
was fast enough to react to it, but I was just stood silent and watched it
moment after, those flame magic were halted in front of me, and just hung there
on the air.
Wh, what happened? Go, fucking burn him into ashes!」
was desperately trying to take command over his magic, but these fireballs were
who was clearly vexed by this phenomenon leashed his frustration on his
you lot! Use your damn magic!」
Ri, right. 『Wind Cutter!』!」
magic spells kept coming my way.
every last of them was no better than the first, they just stopped in the air
and wouldn’t move any further.
THE FUCK’S GOING ON!?!?」
couldn’t be any further shocked to see that their magic just stopped. In
the meanwhile, his magic spells called out to me.
What should we do about these guys? Should we kill ‘em?』
us what to do, Masutah!』
magic spells just casually betrayed their own creators and said that to me.
just laughed bitterly when I heard it, then spoke to them kindly.
okay, you don’t need to attack them. I’m sure you guys have enough capability
to do so, but there’s a possibility that the classroom would receive unwanted
collateral damage. Instead, I want you to vanish as naturally as you can. Can I
ask you that?」
that’s what Masutah so wished, then we have no other things to say. But… is it
Thanks for the consideration. I’ll depend on you guys next time.」
I said so, the Magic Spells became elated and cheered 『Yaaay! Masutah praised
me!』 before they vanished from the spot.
and his goons who were oblivious of this conversation were, again, surprised by
WHY THE FUCK OUR MAGIC JUST GONE!?!?」
Is that all? We’re about to start our study session here, so…」
a moment, pure bewilderment was showing itself on their faces, but it soon
turned into spears and lances of glares.
getting cocky on us… WOY!! JUST SHOWER HIM WITH MAGIC!!」
Kisaragi-senpai’s cue, the other heroes once again send magic spells to me in a
as though my words were collectively captured by these magic spells, each and
every of them vanished before they made contact with me.
I sensed would take a while, I called out to Helen.
do something about them, you can start the study session with everyone else.」
「Under these circumstances!? Just how absurd are you!?」
I? But, I don’t want to waste any more time… Well, let’s not dwell on the
despite her retort, brought the other students to their respective desk and
started the study session. Un, that’s for the best.
the midst of it, Saria called out to me.
okay. Saria, why don’t you go and study with everyone else?」
Thanks! Seiichi too, do your best!」
patted Saria’s head before she returned to where the others were, then started studying.
who watched this carefree conversation, had his face became red itself and
DON’T FUCK WITH MEEEE!!! YOU THINK YOU CAN IGNORE ME…!? FUCK! FUCK!
FUCKFUCKFFUUUUUUCCKK!! WHY THE FUCK IT WON’T FUCKING HIIIITTTTT!?!?!?!?!?!?」
because I personally asked your very own magic.
mattered not how hard he shouted, his magic just would vanish before they deal
any real damage.
the fact that his magic would always vanish no matter what, Kisaragi-senpai’s
eyes still gleamed and he began to use another type of magic.
why don’t I show you the symbol of our Hero title, 『Holy Attribute Magic』….!」
you better stop…」
IT’S TOO LATE NOW!! FUCKING DIE!! 『HOLY LANCE』!!」
The spear of light spell that was different from its cousin 『Light Attributed Magic』, in the fact that it packed Divine aura in it, emerged from Kisaragi-senpai’s palm and made its way it’s me.
However, in the end, it wasn’t that much different from the previous spells, as this 『Holy Attributed Magic』 vanished without trace too.
T, the symbol my Hero title, 『Holy Attributed Magic』 just vanished….!?」
must have so much confidence in that 『Holy Attributed Magic』 of his, but since
I personally asked his very magic, whatever kind of spell that is will end the
Attributed Magic: Intermediate】 have been acquired. Taking into account of
Seiichi-sama’s latent capacity, 【Holy Attributed Magic: Intermediate】 have been
changed into 【Holy Attributed Magic: Extreme】.』
why I told him to stop!
Now you made my body triggered its function! See that!? It was 『Intermediate』
before, and yet this thing just went and changed it into 『Extreme』!
would I be able to use Holy Attributed Magic even better than the Heroes!? What’s
the use of that!?
I was retorting to the Announcement in my head, Kisaragi-senpai’s group was
starting to figure that Magic had no effect on me, and each of them pulled a
sword out of thin air.
swords had the design like those 『Holy Swords』 from the old RPG games, and
every members of the present Heroes had one.
Magic won’t do, then Sword it is. This is the very weapon that only us Heroes
may wield, the one of its kind… the 『Holy Sword』!」
I used the skill 『Advanced Appraisal』 on these 『Holy Swords』.
Sword』 …A Divine Sword whereas only the Hero can wield. It deals high damage
against demonkind. …I think.
it really was just 『Holy Sword』.
addition, they didn’t particularly have any special power.
did you say being able to use this is the proof that you’re a Hero? Are you
from the result of the appraisal, it wasn’t just 『Deals high damage against
demonkind』, but even that was being questioned!
has no effect then!!
was quite taken aback by this joke of an effect, but I assumed that to their
eyes, I looked like to be taken aback by the very appearance of these 『Holy
This sword’s original role is to kill Demonkins, you see. By that, I mean that
this is the weapon that deals high damage against demons. With this, even the
Demon King will be killed in an instant.」
I think that’s simply impossible.
it feels wasteful to use this weapon against a small fry like you, but… You’ve
made fool out of us. That sin can only be paid with your death.」
attempting to kill a human so casually… are they fine on the head?
to me who’ve killed various monsters, I might have no right to say that about
Go fucking die already!」
first to attack was Ooyama-senpai.
was as rough as he looked, and his swordplay had no technique whatsoever to
measure against it was simple——.
just avoided it without hurry.
…So you can avoid my attack… not bad, to say at least.」
Ooyama-senpai was saying so with a composed face.
yeah. One thing I understand is that they won’t hold a candle against the Demon
King with this much strength.
my thoughts weren’t invisible to these people, so they were able to say
whatever they wanted.
oi, Gou~. You’re making him look pitiful. C’mon, show the real thing already.」
right, just get one in!」
looked at me with a grin.
「You hear ‘em, so we’re done checking the water. Unfortunate for you, isn’t it?」
that attitude fucking got on my nerves…!」
veins popped on his forehead, Ooyama-senpai came attacking me once again.
was his serious, like how they told him to, but…
couldn’t tell what was so different from the previous one.
result was, I normally evaded his attack. Ah, the floor could get scratched,
let’s layer it with protective magic.
My serious attack got evaded!?」
you’re kidding right?」
I told you to go serious!」
they genuinely believe I couldn’t evade his attack, after a short while of
disturb, they had him swing his holy sword on me again and again.
I just normally avoided them.
the wall could get scratched too…. let’s use Wind magic to slightly avert
his sword point.
magic in the amount where these Heroes wouldn’t notice, I kept my evade play
whilst keeping the classroom from any scratch.
Why won’t it hit!?」
Rentou, we’re joining.」
yeah. You guys too!」
other heroes who had snapped out and joined in swinging their Holy Swords
it made no difference for me, as all I did were avoiding and keeping the classroom
from receiving any damage.
wrong!? You’ve been only evading!」
said so to reel me in, but I paid no mind to it and did what I did.
knowing it held no meaning to me, they also slipped in magic attacks among
their sword play.
of these attacks went towards Saria and the other students, so I carefully
averted them away. In the end, I was their only opponent.
lasted for 20 minutes, after which, they started to dull out along with their
haa… wh, wha… ‘s…. happe…」
haa haa haa… m… monster… 」
haa… I, can’t….」
will you guys be fine?」
I mean it.
I do worry their physical stamina, what I’m really concerned about is that they’re
going to face the Demon King with that kind of stamina.
If the supposed to revive Demon King is on the same level as Lucius-san, then
all I see is instant massacre for them.
he heard my words, Kisaragi-senpai’s glare once again exposed to me, and with
his breath still in disarray, he said so.
haa… Re… remember this… you bastards…! W. we’ll let it slide this time… Y, you’ll
get… one back…!」
they’re just tired of me evading. Terrible.
I thought so, they went away with a wobbly gaze while staring at me until the
what was their business?」
it you who’s far too abnormal!?」
retort was in a moment’s notice.
now, since the source of trouble had gone, I’d like to get into the study
session. However, it was then when they came.
did you get hurt!?」
are you okay!?」
next guests this classroom saw was Kannazuki-senpai and… the girl I call 『Airin』,
