Here’s the promised chapter
The result of
believing in a magic formation deployed by a naked man——.
「——Where in the hell’s
name is this!?」
In the world where
the vegetation were painted in jet black and the sky was dyed in dark red, I
「No, isn’t it
complete bullshit that this place will bring me happiness!? There are only
premonition of unhappiness no matter where I look at though!?」
Just like when I was
in the 【Forest of Endless
Sorrow】, when I
unconsciously let my mouth run wild, a voice began to reverberate from nowhere.
『…This is the
Netherworld. The place where the soul of the dead floats, Netherworld… 』
「Ah, Netherworld! …NETHERWORLD!?
Rather, who are you!?」
Just where does the voice…rather, really, who is it!?
『…I am Netherworld.
This Netherworld itself…』
「The scale’s too big!」
really didn’t expect there will be a day when the Netherworld will talk to me!
『 ….Yes… You have
A fact that was
served cold and hard.
For a moment, I
couldn’t comprehend of what the hell was this netherworld fellow saying about. Please
talk in human speech.
confusion gradually subsided, then finally… .
I could only shout.
Dead!? O~kay~, you fucking with me!?
「Suddenly came out
then told me I’m dead don’t kid with me! I demand a consolation fee!」
『 …This is the
Netherworld…you have no human right here…』
「My human right is
always denied wherever I go huh!」
you sure my race is 『Human』 ? Because I have
never been treated as a 『human』 you know?
As I desperately throwback
my words, the Netherworld’s voice began to speak again after a little while.
『 ……However, that is
only the result, you virtually have not defunct…』
「Yup, I don’t understand.
Make it simpler please.」
『……You have not died…』
is it, you~! Making me all worried~!
I was raising my
voice in joy, but as though pouring a cold water on it, the Netherworld’s voice
『…However, you will
die as a result…』
「So which one is it!?」
mean, I only got spirited out to this world by a transfer magic.
have no recollection of being stabbed or suffering a cardiac arrest. …No, there
may be also a technique to swiftly kill someone though.
『… I will say it
again… This is the Netherworld… Netherworld is, the Kingdom of the dead… That’s
why, everything in this world is dead, and precisely because they are dead they
are in this world… Adaptation is, impossible… 』
I finally understood
it after hearing the Netherworld’s explanation.
In other words,
being in a world where a living human went to after they died was as good as
「No way… I’m really
I was seriously
depressed this time.
mean… right? I haven’t made any resolution you know?
also left Saria and the girls on the other side… .
it wrong for me to believe in the magic formation’s words…?
So this is my end——.
The moment I thought
so, an announcement flowed into my brain.
«The Skill 【Evolution】 has been activated . Henceforth,
your body has been adapted to the Netherworld»
『…Ah… Just now, your
body has become okay to be here…』
「So I adapted to it
My body had adapted
to the Netherworld.
『…I don’t understand,
but you seeming to be able to act even in the Netherworld… you have become a
deceased… is appearing a little bit different to be like that… Really, I don’t
body is too weird that even the Netherworld is bewildered by it.
say again and again.
body is of a human okay!? I’m the one who doubts it the most though!
After I retorted it
to some extent in my mind, I calmed my emotion once.
「Oh, well… I’m glad I
know I’m still alive, but how I do get out from here?」
that’s the important part.
any rate, there’s no point of all this if I can’t get out.
「Ah, that’s it! I
also only have to use magic to return!」
Netherworld is a different world altogether from the human world… Transfer
magic can only be used within the same world…』
That was right, I
didn’t expect the situation would end up like this, so I never thought about it
before, but transfer magic could only be used inside the same world.
That was precisely
why, I couldn’t use transfer magic to return to Earth.
up? Doesn’t that mean… .
I who had a bad
hunch, hastily tried to contact Saria and the girls through the function of 【Necklace of Endless Love】 .
「Oi, Saria! Al!
Rurune! Can you hear me!?」
But no one answered
this for real… won’t this mean I can’t go home nor contact anyone… .
As I was depressed,
I suddenly remembered something.
「…Eh? But I was
casted away from the Human world to here though? It was a transfer magic even…」
『 …If you use a
special method, you can cross over the worlds… And above all, going to
Netherworld itself is easy… You have to die after all… However, you can’t
revive the dead… That is why, you can’t return from Netherworld to the Human
world using transfer magic… 』
in the end I died after all!
「… No, but, the man
who sent me once came to the Netherworld, that’s why he could send me to
Netherworld like this, right…? …Eeh? Don’t tell me… That person was dead…!?」
As I was shivering
to the sudden horror that attacked me, the Netherworld denied it.
『 …That is impossible…
As I said earlier, if one use a special method, they can use a transfer magic
only to go to the Netherworld… 』
「A special method?」
『 … Yes… Transfer
magic is, as long as a part of your body touches the ground, you can make the
magic formation go to the destination… The gate that connects the Netherworld
and the Human world… In other words, the entrance of the Netherworld, if you
put the tool that acted the gate as your
own body, it would make it work…』
「Transferring to the
Netherworld is surprisingly easy huh.」
『 …No…that tool too, is
an existence of a higher dimension… In other words, it can’t be made without
the might of the Gods… 』
That is to say, that
naked man, using the tool he received from God, he obtained a power to bring
people to the Netherworld.
「Without the power of
that God, you can’t transfer across the worlds… like that?」
『…That would be so…』
see… it seems like it will be fundamentally hard for us to return to Earth.
…No, it’s not me who wants to return, but I want to return Shota and the rest.
I have Saria and the others in this world after all.
I heard it quite casually, but… .
「Umm … Are
Netherworld and Human World connected by something that visible…?」
「Are you for real.」
I couldn’t hide my
surprise to the shocking truth.
『 …The gate to the
Netherworld, is placed in faraway west of Human World…』
「…Wouldn’t that mean,
dead people and such will try to go out from there?」
『…About that matter,
has a relation of why I called to you like this…』
I don’t understand why it suddenly talked to someone like me.
『 …I failed to
mention this, but this ego of mine will soon disappear…』
「Isn’t that an
extremely serious matter!? Why didn’t you say it before!?」
『…I was trying to
answer your questions…』
I dogeza on the
completely my fault, isn’t it! I’m really sorry!
『…No, It’s alright…
Continuing the talk… The reason I called out to you, is because I want you to
exterminate a raging evil spirit that resides in here, the Netherworld.』
the talk becomes more complex.
『 …As you feared, the
evil spirits are pushing the gate all at once, trying to get into the Human
world… Normally, the gate is open, and being guarded by the gatekeeper… But
said gatekeeper was overthrown, and in order to not let the evil spirits free,
I closed the gate… By all rights, the soul of the dead from the Human world
will stay in there if the gate is closed, and soon will become Undead Monsters
like Zombie and so on… 』
I got pulled back a
little by the development that was more serious that I expected. Rather, is
this really something that will make me happy?
「I understand the
circumstances… but why me?」
『 …Originally, the
soul of the dead will only exist drifting around without any substances…
However, evil spirits have a strong wicked ego accompanied by a substantial
body, so there is no one who can defeat them… Normally, the gatekeeper can surpress
such cases… But this time, the King of Evil Spirits appeared, and every evil
spirits have been strengthened…』
with this game like development? No, the fact that we came to an another world
itself is pretty much like a game though.
『…You are the only
being who has an ego in this Netherworld… In order to produce a new gatekeeper,
I will liberate all of my power, so instead of losing my ego, it’s more correct
to say I will go into a deep sleep to store my power… At any rate, I am hoping
for you to defeat the King of Evil Spirits and the other evil spirits… 』
unreasonable request isn’t it.」
『…I feel really sorry
about this… Worst come to worst, you don’t have to kill the Evil Spirit King…
Originally, it’s a trouble I ought to deal by myself… That’s precisely what it
means by losing my ego to defeat it… However, at least… at least, would you please
buy a time until I can produce a new gatekeeper… I won’t say it’s for free… I
shall promise you I will return you from the Netherworld…』
see… It’s hard to be a Netherworld too, huh. The talk skyrocketed too fast I
got calmed down instead though.
if I listened to the Netherworld’s request, I can go back it seems.
「Understood, I will
help. Only if you’re fine with me who might not be able to do anything.」
truth, while things may be different in Human world, I don’t know just how
strong I am in this Netherworld. I might as well be a deadhead here…
While I was thinking
like that, I heard the Netherworld raised its voice in gratitude.
『…Thank you very much…
Thank you very much…』
Thus, I was made to
exterminate evil spirits in the Netherworld.
