A month had already passed since Tetsuya and the others were summoned to the other world, the one called 《Asura》. And during that time, the heroes except for Tetsuya, had been striving to become either Templar Knights or Imperial Court Mages (the latter are the ones who specialize in magic more compared to the former). In this world of magic, witchcraft and black magic does not exist.
(The reason why God didn’t create these magic in this world was 「Magic is something like fantasy for me! Moreover, between Black Magic and Witchcraft, would you even choose? And Besides, isn’t it troublesome to have more branches?」 or something like that.)
Meanwhile, Tetsuya is currently reading a book at the imperial castle’s library. It was a grimoire and one that’s located at the forbidden section. He usually spent 10 hours a day in the library going through such prohibited books and texts that he actually finished reading them all. And the jealous Sato was used to test the magic (LOL). On the same note, Tetsuya was recently assaulted by a murderous gaze from Hoshina when he was seen talking to Mana. What Hoshina didn’t know was that Tetsuya was aware of how he looked at him. He knew that Hoshina would want to mess with him whenever there was a chance.
And today too…………
(Yuzuha)「Ah, Kanzaki-Kun. You went to the library again today?」
(Tetsuya)「Well there aren’t anything else I can do, right?」
(Mana)「Then how about a match with me, Tetsuya?」
(Tetsuya)「Please excuse me Mana senpai. If it was before back in Earth, sure but with my current status, it’s impossible.」
(Mana)「So? When we were on Earth, Tetsuya was the one cheating, no? Every time you used Shukuchi1)TL Shukuchi : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shukuchi, you always had me. 」
(Tetsuya)「But here, I will definitely die before my father does… Well, it was a line I had to say at least once after experiencing that hell like training experience.」
(Yuki)「Tetsuya, was it tough?」
(Tetsuya)「Yukihime2)Tetsuya used a nickname here as a sort of play on her name. It means snow princess for those who are unfamiliar senpai, tough would be an understatement. To be thrown at a mountain where bears are rampant with only a wooden sword and minimal amount of food, would you do that to a child that’s only in third grade?」
(Yuzuha)「But didn’t Kanzaki-kun kill a bear?」
(Tetsuya)「Well, I managed to somehow」
(Yuzuha)「If I remember correctly, you used Shukuchi to beat it didn’t you?」
(Tetsuya)「Yes, but… I was scared at that time. Although it worked, I haven’t completely mastered it at the time and before I knew it, I had an arm stuck under the bear’s body」
(Mana)「It’s only natural since you can’t use cheats.」
(Hoshina)「Kanzaki, you! Get away from (my)Yuzuha and the others! (My girls)They are busy, unlike the 『incompetent』 you. When someone who’s being lazy in spite of already being an 『incompetent』 and does not even participate in training are nearby, others tend to get corrupted. Mana, Yuki, and Yuzuha; please stop talking to the 『incompetent』 and come here.」
While Tetsuya was talking with Mana and her friends, Hoshina suddenly stormed into their conversation. What followed were the forbidden words of the three goddesses.
(Mana)「Don’t you have anything better to do?」
(Yuzuha)「Hoshina, could you leave and go somewhere else? The air became polluted.」
(Yuki)「That’s right, it’s as Mana and Yuzuha had said. And…」
(Goddess trio)「「「Do not call us by our first names (Please)！」」」
(Mana)「Tetsuya is nowhere close to being incompetent.」
(Yuzuha)「Yes and Kanzaki-kun is merely sealed.」
(Yuki)「And not being overly familiar, unlike the Hero Hoshina.」
(Mana)「I disapprove of you putting distance between us.」
(Yuki)「And unlike the Hero Hoshina… Grrrrr」
(Goddess Trio)「「「He is not a narcissist!」」」
They gave a rather harsh answer to Hoshina (Kouki). And while Tetsuya thought nothing of it, Hoshina’s glare implied otherwise.
(Mana)「Kanzaki, let’s go.」
(Yuki)「That’s right, Shall we go?」
And like that, Tetsuya was dragged away by the arms as Hoshina watched in contempt. (LOL)
（You dared to snatch away my Yuzuha. How can an incompetent like you talk with people like them? You don’t have the right to call their names with your incompetent position. Why are you with them? The only one worthy to stand by their side is me! Yes, Mana, Yuki, and Yuzuha. It’s obvious now! You were brainwashed by that disabled and being forced into it. It’s okay. I will remove the incompetent.
Kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill kill die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you kill you I’ll kill you I’ll kill you I’ll kill you I’ll kill you I’ll kill you I’ll kill you I’ll kill you I’ll kill you I’ll kill you I’ll kill you I’ll kill you)
A week later, Tetsuya, our hero had come to the Dungeon. This is so he can do some combat training. The one he’s in is called the 『Abyss’s fool』. It was for beginners and somewhere within is a large and deep valley.
(Sato)「Oraa!3)Something like a battle cry」
(Knight Leader)「Nice! Now fall back! 」
Sato swung down his two-handed hammer and crushed a Slime. Following that, the Knight Leader called for a regroup.
Meanwhile, Tetsuya was currently approaching the passage to the 25th floor’s boss room.
After advancing for a while, he reached a wide open space. It ended at a cliff where a stone bridge could be seen. The Knight Leader told the party to take a break here but still had them do practice swings.
Tetsuya looked over the cliff. As he was doing so, two people sneaked up to him… It was Kouki and Sato. What they didn’t notice was, there were four people who discovered them… It was the three goddesses and the Knight Leader.
And the duo suddenly……
(Hoshina)「《Wind Sword Art – Wind Cutter》」
Two attacks were shot toward Tetsuya who was peering over the cliff. As he was caught unaware, Tetsuya was sent over and fell.
The four witnesses wasn’t even able to react.
This is the dungeon called 『Abyss’s Fool』. The reason why it was named so was because of this cliff. Nobody knew what lied at the bottom of the abyss, or whether it had any bottom at all. Nor do they know what happened to the fools who fell here.
And thus, mankind lost their biggest trump card against the Demon King.
