Suterareta Yuusha no Eiyuutan (2-11)

Notice: As the term used for Leadred is ‘Oni’, I now have her called a demon rather than an ogre. Just a head’s up.

Story 2-11 『Making a Second Demonic Slave』

“Welcome back from the nether world, Daichi-sama.” (Shuri)

“…… I’m back, Shuri.” (Daichi)

According to my request, Shuri welcomed me back from my eighth death with a lap pillow.

……. That dream, I didn’t see it this time….. Though I thought about complaining to her this time, I’m strangely sad. I’m also happy that I won’t die in the dream anymore.

It’s a strange feeling.

“Eh? Huh? How are you alive?” (Tamaki)

Such a voice was heard to the side.

The wording Tamaki chose for my name was coarse.

Perhaps, I guess you were pleased that I died.

“Tamaki.” (Daichi)

“Y-yes! What is it!?” (Tamaki)

Calling her name, Tamaki started using honorific language in a panic. It was easy to imagine that she was dripping with cold sweat.

Such an absurd Tamaki, I laughed.

“W-what are you laughing about, Master!?” (Tamaki)

“No, it’s nothing. Even there is no way you can deceive me, you try so hard……..” (Daichi)

“There’s no other way right? Because, master is scary….” (Tamaki)

“So, why would you….. You’ve said enough. Ah-, that’s dangerous. My stomach is in pain because I’ve laughed too much.

“Ah! Master is an idiot!” (Tamaki)

We brought down the powerful enemy and were wrapped in a sociable atmosphere.

Oh, I’m seriously laughing now.

……. Well, I’ve already died eight times……

The number of slave slots are sure to increase.

Looking at the attitude displayed a little while ago, there seems to be no reflection coming from this fellow.

……………………..

“Tamaki” (Daichi)

“What is it?” (Tamaki)

“For the time being……. Die?” (Daichi)

“……….. Eh?” (Tamaki)

I pointed my index finger at her, and Leadred suddenly stabbed through Tamaki’s left breast from behind.

“…….. E-, h-…..uh?” (Tamaki)

“Ogre Flame” (Leadred)

To make sure Tamaki was completely dead, Leadred scorched her face with the flames.

“Leadred. Do not kill her immediately. I had you miss her vitals on purpose.” (Daichi)

“Ah, I understand.” (Leadred)

She realized that Tamaki’s hand was twitching little by little.

It’s hot, it’s painful, it’s agonizing.

These feelings are sure to rule her mind. To a certain extent, as time passes the pain will lessen, though in exchange the terror of death thickens.

When death is concerned, I am already a veteran.

I mostly understand what humans think about as they die.

“However, Leadred….. Why didn’t you finish her off earlier? Didn’t I say to ‘take care of that person’?”

I was referring to Tamaki, not the centipede when I said ‘person’. There was no need to enslave a giant centipede….. To begin with, I was aiming to exterminate the centipede. I couldn’t afford to enslave a demon that would disappear and disperse when defeated.

I was concerned that Tamaki would escape after my death.

With that I understood that she hadn’t been made into a complete slave yet. I expected that she did not sincerely feel loyalty to me.

Would she have been fine escaping by herself, or would she have brought Shuri with her? She could have picked either.

When I talked to Leadred about my past, she also told me of hers.

She used to be a demon called the『Horrific Killer』. Therefore, she would have no hesitation in killing humans.

However, I still asked why she would treat her like that….

“Weeeell, hey. Isn’t this woman a terrible hero?” (Leadred)

“That’s true.” (Daichi)

“Then, I thought that you would savor seeing her suffer and would cheer you up.” (Leadred)

“……… Leadred…….” (Daichi)

I was touched. Tears fell from her gentle consideration for me.

Seeing my behavior as so different from my normal, she averted her gaze. Red that was not the color of her skin began to appear on her cheeks.

“Thank you so much.” (Daichi)

“Y-yeah. Though, please cease patting my head……. It is embarrassing.” (Leadred)

“Hmm? What? I couldn’t hear you that well….” (Daichi)

In order to once again see Leadred’s rare ‘dere’ side, I activated my deafness skills.

“B-be quiet! Aside from that, deal with this person!” (Leadred)

She pulls her sword out of Tamaki and points it at me.

“She’s not longer breathing! ……. You should enslaver her quickly. Its better when the corpse is fresh.” (Leadred)

“You’re right. Since Leadred is embarrassed I’ll stop poking fun at her and commence making Tamaki into a slave.” (Daichi)

“Are you even listening!?” (Leadred)

Ignoring Leadred’s thrust, I laid Tamaki’s corpse out on the floor.

“You. Now, I bestow upon you a new life. I give you a second life. Here, you pledge a contract with me and will fulfill your duty as my servant. Wight Back!”

Tamaki’s body began mending itself. The wound on her chest closed and the parts of her face that were burnt each begin repairing themselves.

With this, Tamaki’s transformation into a slave is complete. She will awaken soon. The reaction that I will never be tired of seeing is sure to happen.

Tamaki can no longer run away.

“……………. Daichi-sama.” (Shuri)

While I was looking after Tamaki, Shuri who became bored tapped her lap with a ‘PonPon’.

I don’t think a man who would deny this invitation exists.

“Leadred. This is a good time to take a rest. Stand watch over Tamaki while I go dream again.” (Daichi)

“And if she runs?” (Leadred)

“Killing her with Demonic Pressure or something would be wasteful, so take away her means of attacking. I recommend breaking a bone or two.” (Daichi)

“I understand. I’ll heal her as much as I feel like.” (Leadred)

Leadred waved her hand. Her glance was already fixed on Tamaki.

…… I don’t think that she wants to see us flirting.

“In that case, Shuri. Once again I am indebted to you.” (Daichi)

“I don’t mind. Please rest however long you wish. I enjoy Daichi-sama’s sleeping face.” (Shuri)

Since Shuri said so sincerely, I couldn’t laugh.

However, I feel like I’m taking advantage of her gentle nature.

I can’t understand why she is so devoted….. Really.

I completely relax, thoroughly enjoying the soft and comfortable elasticity, and fall into a deep sleep.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

After each of us taking turns resting for several hours to regain our magic power, we resume the dungeon capturing as before.

The three of us were talking about the centipede, with Leadred and Shuri in the rear.

Tamaki was made to keep the demons some company by herself. Incidentally, since I used 『Absolute Command』on her to disallow her from talking, she cannot speak.

After she revived as a slave, Tamaki said various things and was noisy. Abusive language was poured on me.  She was very persistent.

As I was rather fed up with her, I punished her by making her slay demons solo. To keep her level from increasing, Shuri and Leadred kill the demons with magic.

I’ll knock Tamaki down indirectly by keeping her from gaining experience.

“That centipede from before. Don’t you think it caused our levels to raise suddenly?” (Daichi)

Talking about the fight in stairs room was uncomfortable. Even though it was the 40th Floor, it had a strength to boast about.

That crystal revived and fortified it.

Obviously strange.

“That’s right. Though compared to you two I couldn’t help because I am powerless…..” (Shuri)

“I was also surprised. With this, there are three times that my sword couldn’t cut through something. Though, with this I have an idea about the dungeon’s guardian.” (Leadred)

The proud Leadred was smiling.

“Is that true!?” (Daichi)

“Ah. That detestable double layered armor. The demon’s revival from magic. At any rate, with armor hard enough that I can’t cut through there is only one other person it could be. However….” (Leadred)

“Who is it?” (Daichi)

“That person has a considerably tiresome personality. Probably, we won’t be able to avoid a fight.” (Leadred)

“Eh, seriously?” (Daichi)

I had thought that if we came across someone like Leadred, we could persuade them. It would be best to end everything just by talking.

However, I’m afraid that it seems we won’t be able to use that method.

“Seriously. That guy won’t listen to what you say because he won’t judge you as worth serving.” (Leadred)

“Is that so…..” (Daichi)

“Though, wouldn’t Daichi-sama’s power to enslave work?” (Shuri)

“Even so, avoiding a fight is indispensable, above all there aren’t any slots open.” (Daichi)

Though I could release Tamaki in exchange for the overwhelming uses of the demon, it is convenient to have Tamaki as a pawn under my control.

I died twice during the fight with Leadred, so I’ll certainly end up dying some more. It’s a hunch I have.

“Furthermore, it’s strength is comparable to mine.” (Leadred)

“How…… What’s the name of this demon?” (Shuri)

Assuming he is important, Shuri asked Leadred.

“Fantra Angas. In those days, he was a tactician and a master of the strongest Ice magic.”

    1. Ok, I just wanna thank the readers… Ziru for replying to a previous comment (lol), and my family, and that random dude who winks at me out of a window of a van when I walk down the street. I promise I won’t call the coppers on you next time… On a more serious note, thank you for the fast TLs

  1. Thanks for the chapter. Looks like he finally killed Tamaki. He must have some kind of plan for her. Unless he just wants to torture her a little. As for the name, I can’t even begin to think of a good pronunciation for Fuontora….

  2. On a side note. Is Leadred called an Oni? She might be something like a character from sendai yuusha

    It was a nice coincidence so I quoted it here.

    “Terakio, even among Mazoku(Demons), he was a Mazoku that was an anomaly for being born from an “Ogre”.

    Therefore, he had the horns that were the symbol of Oni.”

    She might be a Demon Ogre [Oni] or something.

    Oni (鬼) are a kind of yōkai from Japanese folklore, variously translated as demons, devils, ogres or trolls. -Wikipedia of Oni

    1. Yeah, she is described as a 鬼. I’m going to go back and replace all references of Ogre with Demon (With the exception of the ability)….

      1. Please keep it ogre, or even better just keep it Oni since it’s not that easy to find a relevant/good english translation.

        Btw, would the name Fontora Angus/Angas work?

      1. Or this could call for a good ol’ fashion POLL VOTE!

        Should Leadred be referred to as a…

        A) Oni (Exact Translation)
        B) Demon (Closest English Translation)
        C) Ogre

        Oni is a pretty broad term nowadays (new interpretations keep stretching the term), but traditionally Oni are pretty much demons that look like Ogres. Japanese Muscle-types demons (usually blue or red) with horns, only wear a loincloth and wield a club or VERY basic characteristics is a Japanese demon with a horn or horns… but even recently there are new interpretations of Oni with no horns…

        Probably the most well known Oni that resemble traditional Oni are the Blue and Red Oni that guard Hell in Dragon Ball Z. The ones Goku meets when he falls off snake way. Pretty sure most people are familiar with Dragon ball and should understand that reference.

        Anyway… I vote A.

        1. You also have lum from urusei yatsura as modern day interpretation of an oni.
          I personally dislike the word demon, since I feel it’s to vague in this instance.

  3. Thnx for the chapter.. I love this ln.. and I’m so glad that you are translating it at such a pace.. keep up the amazing work

  4. Thanks for the new chapter! I can kinda understand why this came out so quickly cuz it’s pretty short but nether the less many gratitude for your hard work. Still, I’m wondering what plans he has for the one slave that is guarding Hayanse. Mmm mystery

  5. im just wanna ask wasn’t the mc died 8 times ? so he should has 4 slot and he used 3 so why he said he doesn’t has slot anymore?

          1. I am confused on Wade also. I can only assume that he killed Wade then enslaved him to make him take Hayase back to the kingdom based off the command in the status window. This is kindof a stretch though seeing as he commanded Leadred to take Hayase back to the soldiers after knocking her out. Oh well.

            1. Yeah the whole thing is a bit confusing as they barely mention Wade by name, and he hasn’t been brought up at all recently, I wonder what he’ll do when Wade completes his task.

  6. Am I the only who thinks they have a fucked up personality?
    Ok, revenge and other, but to say thank you for having shown a person suffer so much, and when he killed his classmates. Nothing against the novel but it is a little strange.

    1. The experiences they’ve had have EFFed them up. He pretty much degraded to the level of those who killed him with a good chance of getting worse.

      But hey, as long as it’s entertaining enough, lets see how far he “falls”.

  7. Sadly, I don’t have as much time to just go through some of these things. But I’ll at least point out if any ones you have an issue with are correct.
    —————–

    ****{“You’re right. Since Leadred is embarrassed I’ll start poking fun at making Tamaki into a slave.” (Daichi) [TN: Feels like I’m missing something here?「それもそうだな。リードレッドも恥ずかしいみたいだから、からかわずに玉城の奴隷作業を始めるよ」]}
    +**+”…Without teasing, commence the slave making of Tamaki.”
    In other words, he’s saying he’s just gonna make Tamaki a slave and not tease Leadred anymore. ずに is an auxilary. Which you’d see at either the end of the te-form or the stem form of some verb or adjective.

    ****{Though I could release Tamaki in exchange for the overwhelming uses of the demon, it is convenient to have Tamaki under my control. [TN: Not really sure here. その魔族の方が圧倒的に使えそうだから玉城を開放するのも一種の手だが、手駒はあればあるほど勝手が良い。]}
    +**+Kinda correct? Literally, it’s be: “Since/Because that demonic being seems to be overwhelmingly useful, Releasing Tamaki is one kind of way(Or ‘is one idea’), but some degree of convenience is fine for my (chess) pieces.”
    So yea, you got this one close and it flows better the way you said it. no need to change.

    1. Ah, thanks. Fixed that and slightly changed the last bit about “….convenient to have Tamaki as a pawn under my control.”

  8. May they all suffer slow and painful death. He will probably resurrect only cute girls to torment for eternity.
    Thanks for great chapter

    1. I think of Leadred as a red-skinned black-haired version of Shiroyasha from ‘Problem Children Are Coming From Another World Aren’t They’…. 😉

  9. will Minamoto be resurrected or will she stay dead? actually if i think about it hard enough this book is turning out to be just like that video game I really didn’t like playing because of the plot. I think it was called “Drakengard”.

  10. Haha i wish he’d be a bit nicer to tamaki now since she finally became a full slave! Looks like a slot opens after every good kill

  11. why he wan Tamaki if she will never become strong for the sake of use stronger level magic? thanks for the chapter
