Suterareta Yuusha no Eiyuutan (3-Another 1)

Story 3-Another 1『Nanamin Religion』

Daichi: “Err, good morning. Good day, good evening.”

Shuri: “Thank you for waiting. I think I’ll announce the results from the『Epic Tale of the Forsaken Hero Popularity Contest』!”

Shield: “This time we have Katsuragi and Shuri-chan, with me, Tamaki Yuina, as the coordinator. Nice to meet you.”

“It seems we’ve gathered 1,000 votes in total.”

“That’s right! Moreover, there is the possibility that we could have gotten more votes but the limit was set to 1,000 votes and the poll was stopped midway!”

“Endless thanks to the readers. Thank you very much.”

“Well then, shall we immediately move on to the announcement?”

“I’d like to mention that the first place has a brief story. Whose hands hold the glory of first place!? Well then, let’s see!”

“First of all will be 10th to 6th!”

=================

9th

• Samejima 2 votes 0.2%
• Fantra Angas 2 votes 0.2%
• Lily Shuraham 2 votes 0.2%
• Claria 2 votes 0.2%

8th

• Kijima 3 votes 0.3%

7th

• Messiah 11 votes 1.1%

6th

– Akina Leadred 39 votes 3.9%

=================

“… The first one seems like a typo, I wonder about the others?”

“10th place was omitted because it had 0 votes. Originally, it couldn’t be helped because the amount of choices were low.”

“There’s the name that all readers to have forgotten. Like Kijima, or Kijima, or Kijima.”

“Though it’s only one person… I don’t know why Messiah got less votes than Leadred-san.”

“Her sleeping face is so pretty~.”

“Perhaps it was affected by how much she loves fighting. Saying that, it’s probably a perfectly normal spot for a main character.”

“However, the person in question worried about it considerably. She’s thought more on it. See, look over there.”

“Hmm? … There’s a Maid-san sitting on the floor holding her knees…”

“Eh? Are you depressed?”

“… At any rate, I am a muscle brain woman who loves fighting. Although I love fighting, maid clothes? I’m wearing maid clothes… Obviously I’d be incredibly embarrassed for getting used to the frills, baka.” (Leadred)

“I-I haven’t seen her do something like rapidly mutter idle complaints before…”

“P-pulling myself together for the next ones, 5th and 4th place~!”

=================

5th

• Katsuragi Daichi 43 votes 4.3%

4th

• Hayase Fuuko 47 votes 4.7%

=================

“… Oh? Am I imagining it? I wonder why Katsuragi-kun’s name is in a place like this?”

“… Shuri-chan? For the time being, can you put your hands down? It’s dangerous. It was the voters.”

“That’s right, Shuri. Usually, a man can’t take first place in this kind of a popularity contest.”

“Then, first place is…”

“By the way, first place has been snatched by a heroine.”

“I-in other words, it’s very likely that I’ve gotten first place…!”

“Something like that. So, don’t act rashly, Shuri.”

“Y-yeah! Thanks, Katsuragi-kun!”

“Oh, they’ve started flirting again… I’ve had enough. Back to the story, the fourth place spot went to the one who, like me, joined the group midway through: Hayase-san.”

“Hayase-san’s image changed to cute in one go, don’t you think?”

“It’s hard to believe. A typical ‘before and after’ situation. She’s become really cute. It’s a pity she’s not here.”

“Hayase-san will probably feel happy from just those words. Come on, we’re wasting time, shall we go to the next one?”

“Reasonably, won’t it be Yui-chan?”

“… W-who knows? I-I don’t. IThat aside, why don’t I start from first place from here?”

“Hmm? What’s the matter, Shield?”

“No… I mean. Here, look.”

“Hmm?… … Ah.”

“Something like that. You realize?”

“B-but, can we afford to do something like that? I mean, isn’t it suspicious to abruptly change the order?”

“… I’ve prepared myself.”

“Don’t worry about it. No one will die.”

“I hope so… Then, let’s announce it! 3rd place!!”

=================

3rd

• Hamakaze Shuri 146 votes 14.6%

=================

“Ah, I remembered that I have something to do, so excuse me for a bit.”

“P-please calm down, Shuri! Stoppu! Stoppu!” [TN: Stop is in English.]

“Ridiculous! I won’t forgive these results!”

“Yeah, but, isn’t the thing you are holding clearly unnecessary for going out!?”

“Katsuragi-kun, let go! Let me go~!!”

※Please wait for a while until Hamakaze Shuri settles down.

“T-third place… Even though I’m a heroine… even though I’ve been here since the start…”

“Sh-Shuri-chan has a face that she can’t show to anyone on… K-Katsuragi. Do somethi-“

“Y-yeah. Since Shuri is first place for me, don’t worry about getting third place in the popularity poll.”

“It’s no good!! If I’m not first…”

“If you’re not first…?”

“If I’m not first… how can I openly do this or that with Katsuragi-kun!?”

“Well, next, let’s go, next.”

“Tamaki is cold and doesn’t think about her best friend…”

“Recently, the touchy scenes Katsuragi-kun have decreased… it’s so cruel!”

“… Don’t you guys act cozy enough every day?”

“Not enough!”

“… Then, to get 1st place in the next popularity poll (I’m not saying we’ll do one), you have to crate a better image of yourself. So, will you say those words?”

“Eh… do that…?”

“Do it~. I also want to see that. It’s cute.”

“R-really?”

“Yeah. I think everyone notices Shuri’s charm too.”

“I-is that so… Then, I’ll work hard… Let’s go…!”

“Li~ghty!”

※With my smartphone, Shuri changed into Light Shuri.
=================

2nd

• Tamaki Yuina ( shield ) 331 votes 33.1%

=================

“Yes! I, Tamaki Yuina, got second place!”

“… Huh? Shuri? She disappeared…”

“It’s all right. I’m sure she’s nearby. Apart from that… don’t you have any words of congratulations?”

“Well, that’s… Congratulations.”

“… That’s it? Don’t you want to tease me?”

“Ku-… come here.”

“Ye~s. Ah, though hugging Katsuragi is regrettable, it’s unavoidable~. After all, I have to atone~.”

“… You’re not fooling anyone with that smile on, Tamaki.”

“… Ehehe.”

“Don’t charm me with that face and announce first place.”

“Ah! Yui-chan, you’re crafty!!”

“Ah-, she revived.”

“Yui-chan’s flirting time is over! Next, the last one! Let’s go!”

“Shuri-chan is stingy.”

“Well well… However, who is above us…?

“Well? Does Yui-chan know?”

“Nope. I haven’t seen 1st place yet because it was on a separate piece of paper.”

“Well, let’s look together then?”

“That’s right. Yeah! Well then, Yui-chan, let’s go~!”

“I know, don’t rush. Well, the first place winner of the first『Epic Tale of the Forsaken Hero Popularity Contest』is… …!!”

  1. Uh, dumb question? Maybe? Who the hell was first place? No not really looking for answer, just my reaction.

    1. Nope. I’m posting these chronologically. I assume she got first because of the “perfect housewife” vibe she gives off

    2. That’s the point. The last sentence could be translated two ways
      “HOW?!”
      or
      “WHY?!”

      Even the characters are wouldn’t how she got first place. Compared to Tamaki, Hayase, or Shuri, she had the smallest screen time.

      Also:
      >>「絶対読者の方が忘れてそうな名前入ってますよね。木島とか木島とか木島とか」[TN: WEIRD SENTENCE, SPEEDING THROUGH! HYPE TRAIN *honk honk*]
      >>“The readers entirely forgot to enter this name. Kijima, Kijima, Kijima.”
      More like a name the readers most likely would have forgotten was entered in. Like Kijima. Or Kijima. Or Kijima.

      >>「で、でも、そういうわけにもいかないだろ? ここでいきなり変えるっていうのも怪しまれるんじゃないか」[TN: HYPE TRAIN DON’T STOP FOR NO ONE!]
      >>“B-but, don’t you wonder why? Aren’t you suspicious of it?”
      “B-but, it can’t be that way right? Wouldn’t it be suspicious for it to suddenly change here?”
      It being the name for 3rd place I bet. Most likely they are worried since well, Shuri didn’t get 1st place.

      Aside from that, I think there are a few other errors, but I’d need to re-read the raw again.

  2. Well I guess its because nanamin likes katsuragi even b4 he changed to skinnyman. For example, when shuri went berserk she tried to save him.

      1. Well I feel sorry for shuri though… she was supposed to be the first ship. Now got sunk by tamaki shooting her cannons at her ship

    1. It’s been said before that Nanami is a “good person”, who is nice to anyone and didn’t really bullied the MC.
      For me, she doesn’t love Katsuragi, she simply saved a classmate when Shuri went berserk and killed others.

    1. she don’t get many apparence, she only get some scene in tamaki and shuri illusion world

      1. i am not kidding, read the chapters and you will know, and yeah i don’t get it why she is first despite not being part of the real world.

  3. My fav. character is also Nanami, quite satisfied with these results. If she joins the harem she will get the lead position in no time. Btw i think she is also Daichi’s childhood friend and he was her first love. I think she is plotting to kill Samejima by luring him to lower floors. (Just my thoughts haven’t read the story.)

  4. yea +1 to WHAT?, feels more like trolling from fans actually haha

    i didnt get the perfect waifu material, she feels more like a sly girl

    soo… is she in that world with the others to begin with?, that i dont remember . she could be sick at her home when all that stuff happen actually…

  5. hahaha during that whole romance simulation i was thinking that nanamin was gonna steal daichi’s affection away from shield xD so her winning kinda actually makes sense to me 😛

    1. Someday I might make a glossary of characters but for now… I suggest rereading volume 2. She is introduced in that volume, well its more like mentioned.

      1. Actually, I believe she was introduced in the first volume during Sashima’s POV when he threw Katsuragi as bait. he knocked her out since she wanted to help her friend Shuri and he couldn’t have a healer he didn’t get to play with get killed just yet.

    2. She’s the healer I believe. She also seems to dislike samejima although she’s in a party with him from what the succubus said.and yeah, she was the dream world friend of tamaki.

  6. Thanks for the extra!
    I don’t understand how she got first place when she had the less amount of time in the novel than any other characters…

  7. I need help. I know this is a web novel and all, but I need something for me to imagine all the character’s appearances. Otherwise I’m going to keep viewing this as an Arifureta rip-off. HELP!

  8. Nanamin got 1st place even tho she doesn’t have many screen time then what if she does? Rofl

  9. It’s not that strange that Nanami got 1st place as the other girls have obvious flaws like taking part in the bullying of the MC and Shuri loses votes due to being crazy. Nanami was also the only person to turn around to rescue Shuri when she got captured by the monsters, even if she got knocked out and prevented from doing so. And she showed her good points in the recent chapters, even if only in a phantasy world. But it’s impessive in a way that the fans are paying attention as she is not lamp shaded or spotlighted as being nice.

  10. Yep, expected the results. Came out exactly as I thought. Personally, I like Shuri and Nanamin more than Yui. A bit more for Shuri as I do like girl that is somewhat devoted to you than a girl that is nice to everyone and the so call “perfect” housewife.”
