TN: Too many translator notes in this chapter.
「Eat this! 」
To be honest, the slash was quite hard, so I tried using the “cane of holy flame ball” towards the zombie baron.
「Guooohhh, is this the strength of a fireball? 」
I see, because I sprinkled holy water.
It’s the double offensive of the weak point of a zombie by holy + flame.
I thought of a good thing, I sprinkle the holy water I have to my iron sword and mithril hauberk.
This way, it will be effective against undead.
「Holy water of a high priest is indeed my virtuous enemy! 」
Oh, could it be that sister has a high rank?
Because the zombie says it, it might be correct.
Me and the baron’s exchange is now different compared to a moment ago.
That weird sister, I will thank you once!
「Oi oi, the holy water is gradually weakening you, Baron! 」
「Fufufu, I can handle this extra handicap, stripling! 」
While shouting such a thing, Lyle-sensei calls from behind.
「What are you doing Takeru? We will withdraw soon!」
「Ah, sorry! 」
The fight was fun and I completely forgot the strategy.
「Ha ha ha, did you not realize how frightening it was before the infinite power of mine.」
The baron chase after us with the four heavenly kings (or the four majo) while raising laughter.
The goblin chief is dead already. The baron is not bothered that they became three.
When I went outside the old castle, I confront again the baron and his three commander.
「Fufufu, you realized that you can not escape then be the first food of my deadly legend.」
A terrible roar vanished baron’s long-winded speech.
Along with the roaring sound, smoke rose, the baron and his three commanders were swallowed.
Four bronze artillery guns carried by artillery corps blew the fire and a big iron bullet tumbled them all over.
If you just shut yourself up in a castle quietly, the cannon will not hit you. Cannons won’t hesitate and helps you attain nirvana, baron.
When dust clears up, a big pothole is shows up in the place where barons stands.
Perhaps I had anticipated that there would be development like “GU HA it did not work!”.
Not even a trace remains.
「Ah, the castle got scratched again.」
If we rebuild this place and use it as a base, the repair seems to be serious.
It seems that there is a quarry nearby so I wonder if we will be able to procure materials.
While thinking about such a thing, I faintly hear little voice from below.
I wondered what it is and look.
「Guu… amusing… the attack…」
Meat pieces are left under this hole, and that is talking.
Which is weird.
「Are you possibly the baron? Do you still live?」
Because it is an undead, will not you die with a cannon?
Even if you become a piece of meat, you are alright.
「I am … …, infinite …, power … ….」
I’m sorry for a moment but I guess it can not be helped.
Even if you’re restored, you’re in trouble because you become a zombie slime baron.
I put my hands together and brought the Holy Water I had to the baron.
「Gyaaa … …, my body is … …, melting ……」
「I’m sorry Baron. I’m sorry but you are already dead, give it up already」
「I am … … to the kingdom, revenge … …. Oh … …」
「Namo amidabutsuda, Baron.」
***TN: There is no direct translation for this, it is similar to Amen.***
The baron’s meat melted away in holy water, which seemed highly effective, it disappeared.
Even if it’s purified, I hope that you can attain nirvana at least.
「You did it, Takeru.」
「Ah, thanks to sensei’s strategy.」
Sensei probably didn’t notice it, but I sympathize with the baron a little.
I don’t know what circumstances happened for him to become a zombie, I guess everyone in the city of Ox died.
There is no point in resenting the kingdom that did not help.
「Takeru, I’m sorry to have kept you waiting. It’s the general’s work from this.」
「Before that, I only have a bad feeling …」
Lyle-sensei keeps commanding the entire operation. His eyes are gladly shining although it still looks exhausted with the presence of eyebags.
I cannot go against this.
「Siege warfare is hard and cleaning up the drops is also serious.」
「Ha, good luck.」
Hereafter, the zombies will be buried. It is necessary to hold a service.
Although I am not good at plain job, I thought that it was for the baron and had no choice but to do my best ….
When the renovation work of the City of Ox ceased, a strange report came in from the messenger. He was in charge of political affairs at the old castle which became the operation base.
「A traveling missionary nun came and helps us purify zombie hole.」
「Oh, that’s good.」
As the person in charge of the volunteer corps, I guess I should thank the traveling missionary nun.
Why do I have an unpleasant hunch?
What is it, the feeling that my back is stirred…….
「”I would like to say a few words.” is Sister’s message to the general.」
「”I’d love to” is my reply.」
What is this, something in me emits a danger signal to escape now.
Is the greeting left for Louise?
「I have already come here.」
On a white background with blue lines, the sister in A-sama Church robe came quietly.
Face hidden with the hood, her long blonde hair could not be hidden completely and I remembered those excessively large breasts.
***TN: As a man I also can recognize a woman with the looks of her breast, and strength of her slap.***
She is a priest so a silver ankh hang around that area but it doesn’t looks good.
「Yahho, long time no see Takeru. I came to see you!」
It came out, a strangely over-familiar sister.
We only met once, and I do not remember becoming friends at all.
Every time I see her, my character breaks.
There is a feeling of incompatibility because the mysterious nun’s broken character flakes off with her eyes covered by the hood.
What was that name, Sister, Stelliana?
「It’s not a strike. It’s Stelliana. If you do not remember, you can call me lovely Lia-chan.」
「Well, Sister Lia, what can I do for you today? 」
I will donate to the church, so please come home early today.
When this sister comes, talk tends to be long.
「Thank you for liberating the City of Ox. I can revive the church in the City of Ox. A-sama is pleased.」
「No, I heard that you purified the city, I thank you this time. The holy water I received is also useful.」
For once, it is courtesy. If you think that zombies are no longer in the castle, you can sleep with confidence.
I do not want to have a funny sister in place of zombies, so I want to purify her to the church early.
「Today rather than ‘From the Church’, it has been a request from the Kingdom of Silesie.」
Is it so? To say it in a way that seems to be bantering.
Siste Lia plays with her Ankh. Yeah yeah I remember.
「Wait, there’s a request from the kingdom ….」
「Yeah. I was asked by the kingdom to be the one to seal the Miasma Hole of Doom.」
I am shaken by the glittering ankh. My head has become painful.
「Takeru…… the…, it feels like you have no confidence in my ability.」
「Is it obvious? 」
That would be a problem really.
Why? I long for a valuable talent as a cleric at my company.
People whose personality is broken is not needed.
「I felt my destiny is at an unexpected reunion with my beloved, but this Sister Lia is a missionary sister.」
「No, he’s not here.」
Premonition that seems to be sending something strange again.
「A missionary level sister is insufficient. Unless you are a saint or a sacred class, you can not seal the Miasma Hole of Doom. 」
「I do not know the rank of clergy, but those who can’t do sealing are in trouble.」
What is that?
We need a sealer, so if you can not do it, the reinforcement is useless.
「Then again, will you be able to ask you the church to send a saint or a saintess who can seal the Miasma Hole of Doom? 」
「Please be relieved. Do you know that “holy alchemy” is my specialty?」
No, I do not know. I do not understand anything.
Well, I heard from the zombie baron that the holy water made by Lia is strong though.
「I used Holy alchemy to seal the pothole. I’m still immature as a sister, but my holy alchemy is within the level of a saint class, so I’ll able to seal it.」
「Is it so……? 」
Then, she won’t be replaced.
A little, disappointing.
「I’m sorry…. No matter how beautiful of a sister I am, the one you sought is one with fighting power not my loveliness and elegance. You want us to dispatch a stronger clergy, is it not? 」
No matter what you said to this sister, the talk will only prolong uselessly.
I do not think there will be any replacement anyway. Let’s give up.
「The Miasma Hole of Doom is settled in various places. The church dispatches clerics that has the ability to seal it. Compared with the greatness of Takeru, my level as a nun can be somewhat disappointing but please bare with it.」
「No, I guess it really can’t be helped.」
The A-sama church is not bad.
My face looking gloomy is caused by another reason.
「There is absolutely certainly nothing, let’s do something for amends! 」
「No, I do not need that.」
「If you ask me to atone by taking off my robe, I will do so. So later when we’re alone together…..」
「I’m not telling you to take it off! 」
I absolutely thought that we could connect with our talk.
Are you a stripper?
Even though I want to take it, today I have kept hoods in my eyes.
「Hey, Takeru! I’m not a stripper! 」
「Oh, I’m sorry.」
As expected of a cleric, unable to read the air but can she read mind?
「I don’t want to take it off unless I’m alone with Takeru.」
「Ah, because a soldier keeps an eye on this place….. why is…」
Even though I didn’t intend to see, but I ended up saying tsukkomi.
Sister Lia’s awesome.
It’s suffocating. Its thanks to the eyes of the boy from Goslow village surrounding me as personal guard.
***TN: This is also the first time I saw Goslow village. The author is probably just playing with words.***
He possibly thinks that I’m using my authority to force the sister to undress. I think I’m misunderstood.
I have nothing to do with the metamorphosis of this pervert sister. It is a misunderstanding!
My body is still pure.
If you think so, the boy soldier from Losgow village sent a glance(Is it Miruko? Same age as Sara) which is embarrassing.
As soon as I decided, it came to me.
「General, if I am in the way, shall I go down? 」
Such a thing comes to my ears.
Please stop it.
Even though he is a child, do not be strange.
「No, Miruko-kun. Please stay here all the while and protect me…..」
Rather, I will depend on you. Please don’t leave us alone.
「I seem to have received a very rude misunderstanding, I want you to definitely explain it.」
No, I was rather misunderstood.
I think that Sister Lia is making a correct interpretation.
「There is a really deep reason for me to wish to reveal the figure of truth in front of Takeru.」
「Is it a joke? Is it true?」
Because the talk has already become long, I want you to pardon me.
「Really true, big, serious and very important story.」
「Haa, well then. It can’t be helped. State briefly please…」
If Sister Lia is going to be a companion from now on, I can’t afford to not ask.
Rather, I would like to ask if there are any reasons to remove the robe.
「From the first time we met, even before we met, I felt Takeru would be like the hero of my destiny.」
Could it be that Sister Lia is of the fushigi-chan’s faction?
***TN: Fushigi Yuugi reference? Not sure. It has been a long time since I watched that anime so I can’t remember specific details.***
When thinking if it was just sister’s act, did Men Hell A Stalker accompany her?
***TN: He said “Men Hell A Stalker” in english.***
What hero of destiny? The line of my backbone makes zowa.
***TN: Zowa is a japanese sfx for shudder.***
「I caused some impolite misunderstanding again……」
「Okay, I will listen to it in detail so please speak.」
For the time being, let’s think about coping after listening.
In some cases, there is also the danger that Sister Lia may be a threat like the Miasma Hole of Doom.
If I think how the zombie baron was beaten, it is surprising for a final boss.
「Let me say just in case. The story of being a hero is not a joke. My spirit lacks balance and that kind of talk does not imply from it. As for reality, I can certify Takeru as a hero.」
「At any rate, no one knows whether it’s realistic to be a hero.」
Hero is a custom in fantasy.
There is also such existence in this world. It isn’t strange.
There was a time when I was saying “I want to become a hero of the cursed sword.”.
However, this world is too realistic for fantasy.
Even if it is said that I can be a hero now, it does not come with a pin.
If you come, it feels like you should have come sooner.
「Does Takeru know what a hero is? 」
「Well, I do not necessarily know what it is …..」
There must be various kind even if it is said to be a hero.
If it is conditional to come from a different world, there must have been some flag at the time of transition.
I know that it is different.
This world was too strict for me in order to think that I am a special being.
「So let me explain. “Heroes” are born from the people, while the “Church” is born of God. They two existence symbolizes the order and justice that A-sama created.」
「If born out of the people, perhaps if a Sister recognize him, he could be anyone? 」
「The difference is that hero does not mean simply those who have courage. After clearing harsh conditions, they are admitted to the saint who is an agent of A-sama on the ground. He will receive power and goddess’ blessing for the first time as a legendary hero.」
「Do I have to clear the trials of a hero? 」
So, it’s a bit time-critical.
As we set up base in the City of Ox, the battle with the Miasma Hole of Doom is near.
You can not do a trial in a long way.
「No, Takeru has already met all requirements of a hero.」
「Well, before all, is the different world transition a condition? 」
「What is a different world?」
「No, if it’s different, but …」
Sister Lia says three conditions to be a hero.
- Liberate the town and the church from demons.
- Being a hero desired by the people.
- To subdue the demon king.
「Since I am an evangelist who has not reached the saint rank yet, I can only certify up to third grade of a hero but he still does not become a hero. Still, I think that there will be considerable differences in future fights.」
「Third grade, what … what kind of qualifications is it? 」
The system of the A-sama church is difficult to understand too.
However, it is understandable that a saint or sister certifies a hero as it is a fairly unique pattern.
No, but wait a moment.
As the other two are assumed to be good, I have not defeated the demon king.
There is nothing to think about.
「It’s the zombie lord that ruled this city.」
「Well, was the baron a demon king? 」
Though there was no such pretense at all…….
No, indeed it feels like an RPG-like demon king.
Or, if you feel it, can you become a demon king?
Rather than the hero, that needs to be certified instead?
Is it a demon king if introducing oneself?
As a system, it is too sloppy.
What is going on different world fantasy.
Although Tsukkomi springs up a lot, I feel that not wanting to talk long with Lia grows stronger than doubt raising.
***TN: Tsukkomi is often used to describe a Japanese anime character who is frustrated, under appreciated, or just plain ticked off. The Tsukkomi attempts to keep a calm facade, only to be thwarted by someone, or something, they find irritating. Often resulting in violent actions.***
「The zombie baron was a nucleus that has just been born. If it continues to be influenced by miasma as it is, it would have become a demon king who threatens the world in about a hundred years. 」
「If you are so certain, it is not strange. 」
Monsters other than zombies were also obeying, and it was certainly a big deal just to say that the person in question has infinite power.
Is it so, Baron?
If you grow up smoothly as it is, you will be a demon king.
If I did not interrupt, he is likely to have been able to retaliate also against the kingdom where his grudged is directed.
I guess you have done something poorly.
Because this is also common practice in the Age of Warring States, please attain nirvana…….
「Takeru, that zombie lord became a provision for becoming a hero. 」
「Stop speaking that way.」
Even though he is a monster, he’s pitiful .
「So, will Takeru be my hero? 」
「I will be. 」
Though I likely to have hesitated a little in case of other timing.
In this situation, I would even borrow the hands of the cat before facing the Miasma Hole of Doom.
In this flow of event, it cannot help becoming it.
「Then in the name of Sister Stelliana, I will appoint Sawatari Takeru as a hero of A-sama. 」
Thus, there is neither a deep emotion nor a promise, I was recognized by Sister Lia as a hero.
