Suterareta Yuusha no Eiyuutan (3-16)

Story 3-16『Failure』

“Where am-…!?” (Shuri)

When I opened my eyes, there was certainly Oginomiya Academy’s classroom that we strove to study in.

My sight hurriedly darted around. Then, an unpleasant scene entered my sight.

“Katsuragi~.You are on cleaning duty so you have to hold the rag firmly!” (Samejima)

Samejima was bullying Kasturagi-kun. His face was gripped and being rubbed against the floor.

… What are these people doing?

Stop it.

My shoulders quivered as rage flared up in my core.

“Did something happen? Shuri-chan?” (Nanami)

Next to me, Nanami-chan was worried and asked. She also wore a pained expression, looking away. My other friend, Yui-chan, was in contrast viewing the scene happily.

This was insanity. That’s what I thought.

I have to help. I must help him. Because nobody other but me understands him.

Save Katsuragi-kun from that group of garbage.

I ran over to Katsuragi-kun when I could no longer stand it. After pushing the hindrances, Samejima’s group, out of the way, I took the rag out of his mouth.

“Npu-!” (Samejima)

Samejima was unable to avoid me pushing him off balance and was beautifully hit in the face.

Serves him right.

“… Oi, Hamakazi. What are you doing?” (Samejima)

Samejima asked with a vein appearing on his forehead.

I boldly smiled while standing before Katsuragi-kun to protect him.

“I thought I would give you a taste of what Katsuragi-kun is feeling.” (Shuri)

“You… are you f*cking joking?” (Samejima)

“You heard what I said. Why would I ignore something like this?” (Shuri)

“Because that guy is garbage. Do you understand? No one in the world wants defective merchandise. No one will be sad even if I break him.” (Samejima)

“Yeah. Shouldn’t Hamakaze get away from him?” (—)

“Or rather, did you seriously… Perhaps, did you come to like Katsuragi?” (—)

The classroom was filled with laughter and spite.

I gritted my teeth and held my temper.

What are these guys? So annoying.

Even though you don’t know about Katsuragi-kun at all. How could you say such a thing?

… … I can’t forgive them.

“… Shut up.” (Shuri)

“Ahn?” (Samejima)

“I told you to shut up, sleazebag. I will not show mercy to anyone who speaks badly about Katsuragi-kun.” (Shuri)

I glared at the cocky guy in front of me.

I warned him. Any more and he would forfeit his life.

However, that trash looks like he didn’t understand.

“… Hamakaze. Didn’t you also bully that guy with us before? So you had that kind of hobby huh? Did I guess right?” (Samejima)

Samejima laughed at me in derision. Everyone in the classroom sneered at me in agreement.

This fellow is really noisy.

Therefore, I shut him up.

“Aga-…?” (Samejima)

In an instant, I drew close to his chest and performed an uppercut on him. Mercilessly using power that far exceeded an ordinary person’s, his upper body flew up and top of his head struck the ceiling from the blow to his head. There was a *Gusha!!* sound.

“… S-Samejima?” (Umahara)

Umahara called out to Samejima but there was no reply. Only blood came out.

“U-uwaaaaaaaa!?” (—)

Someone screamed.

Why would I care?

I grabbed the heads of people near me and slammed them into desks.

Over and over again.

After making sure that their arms hung limp and powerless, I threw them towards the bunch who didn’t want to dirty their own hands and just arrogantly immerse themselves in watching someone weaker.

“… Who’s next?” (Shuri)

An easily understood blood thirst emanated from my entire body. Those words triggered my classmates to scramble to leave the classroom.

Once danger reached your body, you would eventually value your life more than another’s. Confirming it with a sidelong glance, Yui-chan was included in that as well.

She didn’t know.

After all, this world was one Lily created, a fake world based on our memories.

The real Yui-chan would have gladly cooperated with me.

… Leaving that aside.

I turned around and approached Katsuragi-kun who was lying on the floor. His mouth was opening and closing. He was probably surprised at what he just saw.

Even so it couldn’t be helped. Since this version of him had never seen a person die.

“There’s no need to be disappointed, Katsuragi-kun.” (Shuri)

I embraced Katsuragi-kun.

My dear, dear Katsuragi-kun.

“Eh-… ah-…” (Daichi)

He was unable to articulate his words.

He body was trembling little by little. Katsuragi-kun is the gentle person who forgave Yui-chan and I. Perhaps, he felt some guilt in the corner of his heart.

Then, I had to ease his anxiety.

Though it was a little embarrassing I buried Katsuragi-kun’s face in my chest like a mother embracing her child.

“Be relieved, Katsuragi-kun. No one will hurt you anymore. I will protect Katsuragi-kun if anything happens.” (Shuri)

Firmly, firmly I held him. For a long, long time.

However, on the contrary Katsuragi-kun pushed me away.

“Eh?” (Shuri)

I fell down from the unexpected impact. Katsuragi-kun’s raised his face and extended his arms.

His face was filled with fear. Contempt was mixed into his gaze.

… Why?

“Y-you… what did you…” (Daichi)

“I was rescuing Katsuragi-kun?” (Shuri)

“Not that! You murdered him!!” (Daichi)

Murder. Ah, right.

I definitely killed someone.

… However.

“What about it?” (Shuri)

“!?” (Daichi)

“I mean, I think what these guys constantly did to Katsuragi-kun was much more painful.” (Shuri)

“Y-you, what are you saying…” (Daichi)

“I said that it was alright that they died. Because it was compensation for the crimes they’ve committed until now.” (Shuri)

I walked up to Katsuragi-kun with open arms.

“I like you, Katsuragi-kun. I love you.” (Shuri)

I told him my feelings. Knowing this, Katsuragi-kun would accept me.

I thought that.

However, he threw back a cruel remark.

“Stay away!! You monster!! You’re disgusting!” (Daichi)

Katsuragi-kun was frightened from when I killed Samejima and the other classmates, his face was distorted.

Collapsing in tears, he retreated every time I took a step.

“W-what’s wrong, Katsuragi-kun? I am yours.” (Shuri)

“Stay away!” (Daichi)

Complete rejection.

… Why?

I like Katsuragi-kun so much. I would do anything for Katsuragi-kun.

I erased Samejima’s group that Katsuragi-kun cursed and wanted revenge on. I stopped the other classmates as well. I told you what I honestly thought.

“Katsuragi…kun…” (Shuri)

“Stop it! Shuri-chan!” (Nanami)

“Kya-“ (Shuri)

Still, someone approaching me from the side and pushing me away was totally unexpected.

I thought that Nanami had surely left with the others.

“Nana…mi?” (Shuri)

“Katsuragi-kun! Come here!” (Nanami)

“… A-aah!” (Daichi)

Pulling Katsuragi-kun’s hand, Nanami hurried out of the room.

Katsuragi-kun’s retreating figure went with her.

Ah… don’t go, Katsuragi-kun.

Why… why…?

I then suddenly lost consciousness.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

“… I’m back here…?” (Shuri)

When I came to, I was in front of the image from before.

The school building was a flat plane rather than three-dimensional. Looking around there were only black walls.

After all, I came back to this place…

『I forced the Game Over. I don’t think your favorable impression would rise from there… I wonder if you are unexpectedly an idiot?』(Lily)

Lily’s voice came just as I was thinking about that. Her words pierced through my chest like an arrow.

『Going to the extent of suddenly killing someone mercilessly in front of Hero-sama huh. Hero-sama wasn’t used to seeing things die before coming here you know? … And yet you chose to do just that… I have nothing to call you but an idiot.』(Lily)

“U-… B-but, I was helping Katsuragi-kun!” (Shuri)

『He wouldn’t come to the conclusion that the young lady who just murdered the person who was bullying him liked him just because you embraced him and told him how you felt!! Don’t you understand!?』(Lily)

Lily’s point was reasonable. Now that I had calmed down, I was also regretting my actions.

Yeah. The Katsuragi-kun from here doesn’t know my feelings, but that doesn’t mean we won’t come to like me.

And yet I selfishly explained it at my own convenience.

… I may have rushed it a bit.

What now?

It’s decided. I’ll be like Yui-chan, then.

She’s my best friend.  Therefore, I believe I know all about her good points.

If I approach him being cute and friendly like Yui-chan, maybe I’ll sway Katsuragi-kun’s feelings. Although he himself says otherwise, I can’t help but worry about that.

『From just that? You had a Game Over at the start.』(Lily)

“… And the other two? Do they start in the same situation?” (Shuri)

『Everyone has to go through their own process. That Shield is particularly skilled though. She is probably the best fit for the position.』(Lily)

“I-is that so…” (Shuri)

『… … Well, calm down and quickly try the challenge the second time. If you don’t, those two will snatch Hero-sama away from you.』(Lily)

Hearing Lily say that, I imagined the scene. Talking and smiling with Yui-chan and Hayase-san in his arms… while my head hung down behind them.

… I don’t want an unpleasant future like that.

“… I got it. I’ll go immediately.” (Shuri)

『That’s the spirit.』(Lily)

Lily was cajoling me, but what she said was true.

I couldn’t afford to nonchalantly be defeated here.

“… This time I will definitely…!” (Shuri)

While slapping my cheeks to fire myself up, I jumped into the image.

      1. DAMN LOL… now how do you call that type of girl? Yandere would be the understatement of this lol… A girl that will mercilessly kill anyone that bother her lover

          1. Gouderes want to make their senpai happy specifically in the way they think will make their senpai happy, no matter what the senpai says.

            “Here is your valentines chocolate, is it not enough? Then I’ll get chocolate from every girl in the school for you!”

            Imagine if the senpai was happy with just the chocolate from his girlfriend/kouhai, but doesn’t want chocolate from EVERY girl in school, first of all, that’s embarrassing and inconveniences a lot of people. Second of all that’s way too much chocolate, he’ll have to carry it home and store it in his house, it’s troubling for him(ignoring white day!)

            So in a sense it IS goudere because she wanted him to be happy by going on a killing spree, which is a cross of yandere and goudere.

            BTW goudere best dere.

  1. Thanks for the chapter!

    … yandere-san, you’re not supposed to kill them out in the open! What do you think back alleys were made for?
    Everyone’s a bit of an insane murderer in this story, but Shuri’s got some extra emphasis on [i]insane[/i]

  2. If there was a choice to kill them, would you do it even though the person you love will not love you? Well that depends on the situation.

    1. as a teaser and a hint : she did something that makes her can’t say what she did…. though what she does indeed show how much she love him :3

  3. that was kinda expected, he build her to think like that, so sad that she will be “fix” in this game

  4. This is a nice example to show the readers just how psychologically fucked up is Shuri. I’m guessing that what she is gonna say is ““… This time I will definitely…Kill only Samejima!”

    First comment on this website, thanks for the chapter!

    1. Nah, Shuri’s just a normal, ordinary, cute girl… with a bit of excessive love, a bit more power than a regular human and … a teeeny weeny bit of insanity… XD

  5. HAHAHAHA! YES! KILL THEM ALL! MAKE THEM REGRET THEIR TRANSGRESSIONS!
    …Also, you broke the rule about instant confession Shuri.

    As it stands, it seems Tamaki is the most normal and healthy, but that doesn’t mean I can’t love what Shuri did here. In other words, the Shield is best girl, Shuri is “best girl”. 😀

  6. I have a strong feeling she’s gonna go yandere again but kill them without him seeing it happen…

    1. Well, she came to the conclusion that her confession was rejected because she killed someone out of the blue.
      So next time she will cripple them but leave them alive and then confess while beliefing that evrything is alirght now because she hasn´t killed anyone. 😀

    1. Personally I quite liked Tamaki’s questioning of Lily’s motives. Helped add some needed questioning to the storyline… never good to have MCs be railroaded.

  7. Thanks for the new chapter!
    Two unexpected things here, 1 she sure did work on them and 2 did not see that other girl rushing to pull him away from her.

  8. Just sitting here reading everything up to this point in a single day. Finished the last line, scrolled down, and began clicking where a familiar blue button is supposed to be, ” Surely it must be a bug, right? There is more than this, right? It can’t be all! Wait when was this one released…. It was released today….”

  9. Thanks for the chapter 🙂 and I’m really thinking about why that Nanami girl didn’t leave. So maybe just as I thought the boy that this nanami girl like is Daichi? Well I just have to wait to know 😛

  10. Damn. I don’t like both of them. They just came to like him because he became way cooler in the another world. How the fuck would you like someone who bullies people just because of their physical appearance. Even if helping is out of option, the best that they could do is ignore the situation. But they didn’t, instead they joined in with the bullying, and were quite enjoying it. Fuck them both. It’s clear that Hayase is the best girl. Those two girls just got blinded by the current daichi.

    1. Don’t be silly, Shuri fell in love with him because she is a person whom clings onto others, and Daichi was the one whom picked her and told her that he wouldn’t ever throw her away.

      Not sure about Taichi though. But then again love doesn’t have to be logical.

      1. As far as I remember, Shuri never “fell in love” with Daichi, she just got stockholm syndromed first thing after being revived.

    2. Then Nanami’s your girl. She’s always been opposed to Katsuragi’s bullying, though she herself could do little against it. But as you can see here (and Yui’s playthrough), she would come help him out when the opportunity presents itself.

      1. Oh snap, your comment just made me have a thought. Nanami said that she has been getting messages from claria-sama right but I’m thinking that shes actually been getting messages from Messaih-sama.
        -“Claria-sama, huh… I thought she’d told Samejima-kun… I know the truth.” (Nanami).- Nanami’s plotting her own yandere moment. I bet bet her wish is something along the lines of “to hurt/kill the guy responsible for hurting her one true love (Katsuragi)…

        1. I don’t think she would go so far as to plot to kill Samejima, nor do I believe she currently has any feelings for Katsuragi other than pity, unless she’s yet another yandere character which seems unlikely.

          Btw, Shia is indeed best girl of Arifureta.

          1. Psh, Nanami DID say that she had a childhood friend that she loves and moved away. THAT’S a trope I’ve seen far too many times to ignore. Also, while everyone else ran away when Shuri went berserk, she actually put herself in danger to rescue Katsuragi. While you might argue that she’s just nice to everyone, my first point still stands. That, and what Shiaforthewin said.

            Either she loves Katsuragi or the author’s just fucking with us.

            Btw, I’ve been a member of the Kaori ship from day one.

            1. same for me i ship kaori to then yue came am i’m like that love is face its between a seducing witch and a loner in need of company and i want kaori to have a chance but now i’m trying to think better of yue!

  11. offtopic.
    Ziru, Could you change the font color of the text in your theme options? Because the text almost blend with the dark background. thanks.

  12. > だらりと腕の力が抜けて垂れたのを確認すると教壇の近くで自らの手は汚さず、ただ自身より低能の者を見て優越に浸っているだけの連中の元へと放り投げた。
    After making sure that their arms hung limp and powerless, I threw them towards the bunch who didn’t want to dirty their own hands and just arrogantly immerse themselves in watching someone weaker.

    > 「それがどうかした?」
    “What’s wrong with that?”

    > 彼女は私の親友。だから、良いところは理解しているつもりだ。
    She’s my best friend. I believe she understands his good points.

    > 結ちゃんみたいな可愛くて、性格も良い子に言い寄られたら桂木君の気持ちも揺らぐかもしれない。彼はああ言ってくれているけど心配なものは心配なのだ。
    It is possible that Katsuragi-kun’s heart may be swayed after being courted by a cute girl with a good personality like Yui-chan. Although he himself says otherwise, I can’t help but worry.

  13. And this is why shuri is my personal favorite…..been going crazy ti read this chapter properly translated with more then just google trans…….love it when her switch gets flipped and the lights come on…ty fir the trans
