Afterword

To those who picked up Highschool DxD series with this [DX] volume, I am pleased to meet you. To those who have read the main volumes, it has been awhile, Ichiei Ishibumi here.

We have finally made new side volumes of the Highschool DxD franchise, DX volumes. The main focus of the DX volumes is short stories that have been published in the Dragon Magazines previously. Furthermore, for the newly written stories (for the DX series), I am planning to bring up “dream matches” and “dream-like moments” which can’t be done in the main series

So then, I shall introduce each story with the related timeline to the main story.

 

[Abduction ERO!] After Volume 7.

It’s a story that gives a nostalgic reference of Ise calling Rias, buchou. I wrote this story when I was wondering whether there was actually UFO in our world. I did think about introducing aliens in this chapter but, even for a DxD story, I thought it was a bit too much and as a result, ended up with Azazel creating the UFO instead. Nevertheless, for our main hero to not only lose his identity (Ero) in our first story of this brand new series but to also have the story to be narrated in Kiba’s point of view…. What an adventure it is.

 

[Oniichan mask!] Before/After Volume 9.

This is basically a sitcom story about Sirzech. Originally from the Dragon Magazine, I wrote this story as a project for [To publish a collection of popular novel’s side story]. It wasn’t published as a standalone story so it’s a story where only those who know about its existence, know of it.

At this point in the story, Ise’s perverseness was really off the scale… I wonder since when did he get numbed at these kinds of situations. Well, the roots of his existence are still very erotic though. Maybe Azazel-sensei’s UFO beam still has lingering effect on him….?

This also happens to be the first story that shows what happens with all the things that they got paid with through doing their Devil’s job.

 

[Stop!1 Yuuto-kun!] After Volume 7.

This is related to the story [Devil’s cold] back in Volume 13, and the introduction of the Gender-swapping laser. This was published at the back of the Dragon Magazine so therefore this story is also known to only those who know of its existence.

Well, this started off with me thinking about what would happen if everyone except Ise became male, and the conclusion is that everyone is a bishounen. In this story, Kiba is a bishoujo and is going out with Ise but think of this story as a parallel universe.

 

 

[Records of Chichiryuutei’s Pleasure Adventure] After Volume 9.

It’s the first story that mentions Crom Cruach’s name. It’s a story that I wrote because I wanted to write a story about a rural village owned by House of Gremory in the background. There are up to nearly 20 volumes of the main series at this point but none had a mention of such a place before. Anyway, Vali’s team had quite a bit of time on their hands back then…

 

[Love song to Reincarnated Angel] After Volume 12.

It’s a story where Sister Griselda was first introduced. I wrote while thinking [What would Reincarnated Angels do for their job?]. Everyone, Irina is working hard with her job as a Reincarnated Angel.

 

[Let’s go to Onsen!] After Volume 13.

It’s a story where my hobbies are reflected upon. I guess I’m weak against older women, especially against married women. I was always thinking of writing a story with Grayfia as the main focus. Not only that, after having a few decisions to be made [If we are going to do this, let’s make an Onsen story!], this story is born as a result as I thought I should let Ise and his friends have a rest after the fight in volume 12 and at the same time, focus on the interactions between Grayfia and Ise.

If possible, I would love to write another story with Grayfia as a main character in the near future!

 

[Phoenix of the Battle School Building DX?] Between Volume 19.

This is a brand new short story… Quite a heated story

In terms of the timeline, I have to say that it’s between Volume 19…. But I would appreciate if you didn’t look too much into this story; just think of it as ‘this happened during the events of Volume 19’ and it would be fine.

[What will happen if they fought against Raiser with the current strength of the team?] was my thought when I wrote this story. Although these [What if…] scenarios are best left to the reader’s imaginations, this was still a topic that I wanted to write about before as part of the volume 1 of the new [DX] series. I have included it as a brand new story. I recommend reading the main second volume while you read this chapter; I think it will be very entertaining. Although Raiser and his team has improved as well as got stronger with their special training, it seems like the Gremory team still improved a lot more than them.

However, this game was only possible since this is a re-match against Raiser. Another match between them and Sairaorg would have been impossible. I believe that fight has seen a fitting conclusion.

It might be fun to write brand new stories about the Great Agares match or maybe, a match between the other Devil Families as well as other forces and publish them in these [DX] volumes in the future.

 

I would like to thank everyone who helped in writing this.

Miyama Zero-san and editor-san, I’m very grateful to both of you just like always. Since I’ve started new short series volumes, I will be in your care in the future as always.

…Now, a brand new Highschool DxD series [DX] has started and I’ve got a place to publish all those previously unpublished short stories. This was only possible thanks to the continuous support from the fans. I am very grateful to all of you.

Then I will see you again in the next volume!

It was a time when the weather got chilly as winter approached.
Inside the club room, there were only Asia, Xenovia and I.
“I’m a bit curious, what does Irina do when she’s not with us?”
I got curious while drinking tea.
“It seems like she is carrying out jobs as an Angel for Heaven.”
Xenovia answered while sitting across from me.
Oh, a job as an Angel for Heaven. Irina is the only reincarnated Angel in ORC right now with the rest of us being Devil. Well, except for that crazy Fallen Angel Azazel-sensei. Irina usually stay with us most of the time but there are times when she goes on her own, like when the rest of us are doing our jobs as a Devil.
We normally stay until late night in the club room waiting for one of us to be called, but Irina is often not here with us. Even if the Three Great forces have made peace with each other, she won’t be able to help us with our work since she’s an Angel. Well, there are times when she would provide us some drinks but…. She would never get involved directly.
“Sometimes, she goes out alone during the holiday saying she’s doing her job as an Angel.”
Asia said, while eating strawberry from a cake.
So she’s busy with jobs that we don’t know about.
“….An Angel’s job. I’m bit curious. “
I just blurted out without thinking, but the face of Asia and Xenovia got brighter when they heard me. Since they were part of the Church before, I guess they will be interested in these things….
“Yes, I’m also interested in what Irina does. Actually, what a job of an Angel is like to be precise. As her friend, I want to see what she does for her job. You too, right, Asia?”
“Yes, Xenovia-san! I really want to see the job of an Angel at least once in my life!”
Arara? It seems like I’ve hit the wrong spot. They have entered the devout believer mode. Well, they were part of the Church before reincarnation so it’s not surprising that they are interested.
“…But won’t we be a bother…?” Asia changed the tone of her voice. They were interested a moment ago but after thinking about it calmly, it seems like she thought she might be a bother to Irina and the Church if she tag along. She really has such a kind heart.
But as if to get rid of her worries, the door was opened energetically and Irina entered.
Irina nodded her head and made a mischievous smile.
“Fufufu, I heard all of it! Ok then! I will show you what I do for my job!”
I have a feeling that we will be involved with the Church this time….

The following holiday, Asia, Xenovia and I arrived at the building related to the Church in the neighbouring town. They told us that this is also one of the living quarters for people related to the Church around here and also act as the HQ for Heaven. According to Irina, she normally receives job requests and would report back to this place.
Maybe because of the peace between the Three Forces were done recently, the outside of the building looks pretty new. As expected from a building affiliated with Church, there is a large cross at the front of the building. It was a nice modern building that looks like it is as big as Khou academy’s new building and didn’t look like one of those Western styled Churches.
Irina told us to come here today. She must have arrived here before us….
By the way, we got permission from Rias beforehand. She sent us on our way saying ‘This is a good chance to learn about the Church’ and even got permission from the Heaven for us.
As expected from the woman I love! Not only does she understand us, but she also puts the small details into consideration! Ah, she’s such a good person…. Well, we did get scolded when we asked to go to the Church before. I guess this is due to the peace treaty between the Three Forces!
…Uuu, since we are all Devils, we get chills just by going near the building affiliated with the Church. The same goes for Asia and Xenovia. Well, it can’t be helped. Since we are Devils, we get instinctively nervous near Church buildings. But after the peace treaty, there were no conflicts between the three sides and individual affairs were not interfered. We also joined forces when it was necessary.
“…I always get chills whenever I see a Church while walking around town. Ufufufu, maybe it is a fitting punishment for believers who got reincarnated into a Devil.”
Xenovia said in a self-disparaging tone… You are a Devil now so don’t be bother about that… I was about to tell her that but it will be hard for them, who grew up in Church facilities, to let go.
“…I want to attend a mass.”
Ah, Asia’s looking at the building with a longing gaze! As a former believer, she must be having all sorts of thoughts! But if a Devil attends a mass we won’t know what might happen so I’m sorry but you can’t, Asia!
By the way, Asia was wearing same Khou Academy uniform like me and Xenovia. Wearing a school uniform on holiday feels bit off but if we are going to a Church, we though it will be polite if we go in a uniform which can be called a student’s formal dress. Xenovia wore a school uniform like I did but Asia was continuously debating if she should wear nun clothes until we were about to leave. In the end, she concluded that she would wear uniform like us having considered the view of the church and to make the point that she is now a part of the House of Gremory.
“Everyone’s here!”
Someone approached us in front of the building. It was Irina.
“I will show you guys today what Angels normally do for their job~”
Irina seemed quite happy; her voice was full of joy. It feels like she’s happy that her friends came over to her house to play. She gave us all a card strip that you put on your neck like identifications of employees. The card was some kind of ID with our pictures on it. Irina pointed at the card and explained.
“This is your special permit. It is designed to not cause harm even when you get near to Church associated buildings. Since they are recently invented, only a few people have it.”
That’s right, even after the treaty, a Devil going into the territory of Heaven will still cause problems. This is apparent especially the case of Asia’s Sacred Gear, [Twilight healing]. Apparently it causes harm when they go near the Church. They say it’s because it can heal both allies and their enemies, the Devil and the Fallen Angels….
Does it really help if we put this on? We were bit sceptical but we still put the straps on our neck.
…..
When we put them on, the chills that bothered us until now have magically disappeared. Having experienced the affect in first person, Asia and Xenovia looked at their hands with a pair of surprised eyes.
“Please don’t use your powers while wearing those. They are still in development stage so we don’t know what might happen.” Irina explained briefly and gave us a wink.
So we can’t use our powers while wearing these. On top of that they don’t know what might happen if we end up using them…. Hmm, I’m thankful but I am also scared a bit.
Our ID was probably thanks to Rias talking to Heaven before coming here. Since everything is going smoothly, I guess both sides are starting to trust each other after the Treaty was signed. Well, it’s not like we’re going to Heaven or Vatican so maybe the permission was given easier. If we wanted to go to somewhere that important, we might get a different attitude from Heaven.
“Well, if we don’t use any powers there won’t be any problems right.” Xenovia said in casual voice but…. I’m most worried about you using your power…. Whenever Xenovia attack using her powers, the screw in her head gets loose and she becomes a power idiot. She had such a cool female warrior vibe when we first met her….
Now, Kiba frequently tells me, “I want to teach her better techniques to widen her attack. I don’t think she uses her brain when she’s fighting….” in disappointed tone and that she is losing her dignity as a [Knight].
“Then let’s go in.”
We followed Irina into building in front of us.

When we went through the automatic door, we saw a place that doesn’t look different from any other office. People working there also wore a suit like any normal salary man.
But from time to time, we went past priests and nuns along the way… the real priests and nuns. They are wearing the same nun outfit as the one Asia has! Looking at the priests…. That reminds me of that bastard, Freed.
People wearing suits didn’t give us any looks when we were walking past but it seems like the priests and the nuns recognised who we are and looked at us curiously…. If they are sent here, they should know that we are Devils.
“…Ah, they are….”
“….I heard rumours….”
They were whispering to each other when they walked past.
Well, I am wearing an ID card with [Hyoudou Issei] written on it so people who knows my name should recognise me straight away.
…but there is something that is more interesting, it was the greetings that people gave to Irina.
“Ace Irina-sama, hello there.”
“Nice day to you, Angel Irina.”
“Irina-sama, please look over my prayers I offered to the Lord next time.”
Everybody who met Irina were either offering prayers or were bowing their head! They are treating her as a saint and are showing so much respect to her!
That’s right! It’s easy to forget but Irina is the Ace of Archangel Michael-sama! From the deck of cards which Michael-sama owns, she had become one of the twelve Angels directly under him! It’s not an exaggeration if one says that that is one of the most important positions one can hold at the Church!
…Since we see her as an easy going high school girl every day, we keep forgetting how important she actually is. If we look at it from the position of the people of the Church, Irina must be someone who people look up to a lot.
“…Irina you are amazing.” I muttered, and she replied, ‘Ise-kun, what are you saying~?’ while laughing heartily but… I will actually think of you as an important angel from now on.
“That’s amazing….! I think I’m going to idolise Irina-san from now on!”
“That’s right…. If someone became an Angel, then that must be the most honourable thing a person can ask for. Maybe I should be proud to be able to call an Angel my friend.”
Asia and Xenovia had sparkles in their eyes and gave prayers on the spot to their friend! Their belief is deepening ever since they arrived here! They are living as Devils right now, but you could tell that they still genuinely believe in God deep inside their heart.
Irina turned around to face us and gave an awkward smile.
“I’m really sorry; people here are specially chosen from every faction and are normally level headed but… they must be bit interested in Devils, you guys.”
“I’m not that concerned. Surely they must have known about the terrorists and the monster disaster in the underworld not too long ago?”
“Yes. People who are here at the allied Headquarters are people who cleared certain requirements from each faction. Normally they don’t show it outside and aids us from the shadows. They also do missionary work and exorcism at the side.” Irina told us. We heard that Heaven was aiding us, frontline fighters, from the shadows. Therefore the priests and nuns we just went pasts are people doing that job… Wait, Irina just said something that bothers me.
“Exorcism…. Against Devils?”
When I asked just in case, Irina made a bitter smile.
“Nah, Devils that claim this area, Rias-san and Sona-san, are our precious comrades who we have allied with, so we don’t do anything against them. Also there’s no way you guys will do something bad, right?”
That’s right, Rias won’t do anything to harm people, she showed so much affection towards them. So what do they exorcise?
“Ah, you mean evil spirits?” Xenovia answered my question. Ah, so Evil Spirits then, I understand, so they get rid of bad ghosts.
Irina nodded and continued
“Yes, Evil spirits are things that no matter what happens will always exist. So part of our job is to recue people form those kinds of things.”
“That’s also what Rias onee-sama does.” Asia added. Yes, Rias also does exorcism if someone requests.
Irina sighed while walking up the stairs.
“The truth is that after the treaty, the number of exorcists has been declining steadily.”
I think Azazel-sensei also said something similar… Irina continued.
“It’s affecting the priests, the nuns and the warriors who fight supernatural beings the most since the treaty. Until now, we fought against the Devil and the Fallen Angels to recover our territories but since we became allies we haven’t had to fight against each other. Right now, we fight monsters or beings that refused to ally with us such as vampires. Thanks to that we are reducing the number of fighters since we won’t have to fight during peaceful times. Well, number shouldn’t be falling so quickly since we have threats from terrorists…”
Hmm…It sounds like the exorcists have it hard. Jobless exorcist priests huh…
“For those who live and fought in name of the Lord, their swords are their way of life. So it will be hard to let that go. If it was me, I would have struggled with my future.” Xenovia spoke. Maybe she knows how they feel since she’s also a warrior. Even if she did choose to become a Devil on a whim, it sounded like she was struggling with decisions back then.
“By the way, we are keeping secrets about the God except for those at high positions. We can’t tell devout believers the truth.”
Irina said with saddened eyes as most people here don’t know that the God, who wrote the Bible, no longer exist. That’s to be expected. Asia, Xenovia and Irina had their mind nearly broken after learning the truth. To the people at the Church, that news will be like the end of time for them. If they lose faith in everything and are filled with sorrow, that will be disastrous.
As we walked up the stairs, I wondered where Irina is taking us to. Just then, she stopped in front of a door.
On the door, there was a passage written in the Angel’s Alphabet with an image of a Cross drawn on it and the door feels heavy. Whoever beyond that door must be someone of a high position.
Before she knocked, she turned around facing us.
“Actually, the regional manager for this area is here right now. Normally that person will be very busy traveling from Vatican and Heaven but she gave us a bit of her own time as a special occasion. That person is also a reincarnated Angel like myself.”
Hmm, regional manager. I don’t know anything about the person from Heaven who oversees this area. Well, I just haven’t asked about it before. I’m sure Rias or Azazel-sensei will know about this person.
Staffs from Heaven are surely mysterious. Well, I’m not really familiar with the side of the Fallen Angel or Devil as well….
“So the regional manager is also a reincarnated Angel. She must be a devout believer, right? I’m excited.”
Xenovia seems like she’s full of excitement but Irina had mischievous smile on her face.
“Ufufufu, Xenovia. You will be very surprised.”
Saying that to Xenovia, Irina knocked on the door.
“Please, come in.” someone politely spoke…. From her voice, she seems like a young woman.
Inside the room was… a nun sitting in front of the office desk. She is wearing a bail so I couldn’t see her hair. She had blue eyes and gave off a northern-European look! She was a beauty with noticeable body features that is like a female model! She seems like…. She’s in her late 20’s. With her warm smile, she gave off a tender aura.
“Everyone, thank you for coming all the way here.” The nun stood up and greeted us.
She greeted us warmly but I can’t take my eyes off her body! Since she’s wearing nun’s clothes, her body feature aren’t shown but my instinct for a woman’s body improved quite a bit lately so I can guess with good accuracy.
I bet she’s very glamorous. If she takes her clothes off, it would be such an amazing view! She has such a nice bottom and her legs are also not too thin while not being too thick either, just perfect!
Although I’m staring at her with lecherous eyes, she only returned with a smile. Damn, am I feeling guilty because I’m at a Church?! Looking at a nun’s pure, innocent smile, I suddenly want to confess even if I’m a Devil!
….Right then, I noticed that Xenovia is frozen solid next to me. This girl, her face is blue!
Xenovia spoke with flustered voice.
“S-S-S-S-S-S-Sister Griselda! W-W-W-W-W-What are you doing in Japan?!”
Ara, they know each other? She’s so flustered, she’s not normally like this! She’s always confident!
The person called Sister Griselda kept smiling and opened her mouth. On the back of her hand, she had the letter Q on it.
“Nice to meet you, Servants of Gremory house. I’m the Queen of one of the Four Great Seraph Gabriel-sama, Griselda Quaeta. I’m regional manager of this area for Heaven, pleased to meet you. “
Oh ho, Queen of one of Four Great Seraph, Gabriel-sama! She’s Queen of that ultimate beauty Angel-sama! She must be of a high position then?
“Sister Griselda… she’s very famous… When I was still at Church, I heard her name few times.”
So Asia also knows of her. Irina nodded and spoke.
“By the way, Gabriel-sama’s suit is Heart. Therefore Sister Griselda is the Queen of Heart. And everyone calls her such.”
Eh he, [Queen of Heart]! So then since Irina is Ace and Michael-sama’s suit is Spade so that makes her Ace of Spade! Both are quite strong cards in a card game. If Queen of Heart and Ace of Spade are both in the same area then this region must be very important to Heaven as well. But I still can’t believe that Irina is the Ace of Spade. Is it because I know how she normally lived….?
Sister Griselda turned her eyes to me.
“Sekiryuutei Hyoudou Issei-san right? I have heard about you, the rising star of the underworld who accomplished many feats, correct?”
“T-That’s, I’m not sure about rising star….”
I’m embarrassed to hear that from such a beauty! I got so embarrassed… Sister Griselda smiled and continued on.
“One of Seven Deadly Sins… it seems like you are craving strongly for sexual desires. Fitting for a Devil I imagine. Not only that you are a Dragon. According to the Lord’s teachings, Dragons are Evil Beings. [Devil and a Dragon full of Sexual Desires]…. Fufufu, if one of our more sensitive believer were to be here, they might just faint.”
I-I have no idea if I’m being praised or being insulted at….
Just then, Irina whispered into my ears.
“Sister Griselda’s really strict with Devils. Before the alliance, she fought against Devils and Fallen Angels for Heaven. She is also one of top five most powerful exorcists within all the Church divisions, especially among female exorcists. But she’s not a bad person. That was just her sense of humour. “
She’s brave nun who fought against Devils then! A-And that’s her sense of humour? Well, I couldn’t sense any hostility in her words so that must be true.
“Next is…. Xenovia.”
Sister’s eyes turn toward Xenovia. Xenovia tried to avoid her gaze but Sister quickly walk toward Xenovia and grabbed her face with both of her hands. With a bright smile on her face she spoke with a confident tone of voice.
“It’s been awhile, Warrior Xenovia. I never thought we would ever meet again like this. “
Her voice was calm, but I think I can sense some anger with it….
“Y-Yes, Sister Griselda. I-It has been awhile… H-How h-have you b-been….?”
Oh, I’ve never seen Xenovia sweating this much and speaking this nervously! It’s quite refreshing to see her like this!
“’How have you been’ isn’t something you should be saying right now? Why did you reincarnate into a Devil after coming here for a mission? Not only that, why haven’t you contacted me until now? If there’s something I really want to ask, it is what you are doing here showing your face, stand up…!”
Sister Griselda slowly focused all her strength onto her hands and her anger was increasing steadily! The room is now full of overpowering aura that came from the Sister who was so kind just a moment ago.
Irina told me and Asia.
“Sister and Xenovia came from the same facility. Not only that, she’s the senpai of Xenovia. She also knew Xenovia longer than anyone at the Church. I also received multiple help from her when I was working with Xenovia as a pair.”
So that’s it then! She’s Xenovia’s senpai from home! She never talks about her past so it’s shrouded in mystery but she did have someone important back home.
Xenovia, who couldn’t run away since her face is grabbed by Sister, shouted at Irina.
“Irina! W-Why haven’t you told me about Sister Griselda before! If I knew that the regional manager was her, I wouldn’t have come here!”
“I didn’t tell you because I had a feeling that you wouldn’t come here if I told you about her. I heard that you never contacted Sister Griselda ever since you became a Devil?”
“O-Of course! If I did…. I would have been killed by her!”
Xenovia tried to resist but she couldn’t get away from Sister Griselda, her face became distorted since Sister Griselda was grabbing her face hard. Seeing that, Irina gave a cheeky laugh. Sister Griselda continued to speak while grabbing Xenovia’s face as hard as she can.
“I was about to go crazy when I heard that you went to Japan and reincarnated into a Devil. You, who I have raised with the teachings of God, became a Devil… you always acted on your own and created some weird theory all the time so everyone treated you as a problem child but I always thought of you as kind hearted girl.”
Sister Griselda is right. She never listens to others and acts on her own. She also say random things all the time and gives us a headache. We often are in a tight situation because of her, Sister Griselda! However, she’s not always that bad.
Asia then spoke to Sister Griselda.
“Sister Griselda, please forgive Xenovia… as someone who has been expelled by the Church and reincarnated into Devil, I’m sure you won’t believe me but… Xenovia-san is a really good person. She’s our precious comrade, saved me in multiple occasions and… And Xenovia-san is my precious friend. So please forgive her.”
Asia asked Sister Griselda with all her heart, asking for forgiveness as her comrade… as her friend. To Asia, Xenovia is a very precious friend to her.
Having heard Asia, Sister Griselda let go of Xenovia’s face and became calm again.
“Sister Asia, I also know of you. I heard you have been suffering because of the Sacred Gear that you possess. I will send out a special ID card for you in the near future. Using that will allow you to be able to participate in Church activities with some restrictions.”
Hearing that, Asia was very surprised.
“W-Will….. that be alright? To give such an important thing to someone who became a Devil….”
When Asia hesitantly asked, Sister Griselda made a broad smile and nodded her head.
“Of course. Even if you became a Devil, you will still be our friend if you still hold onto your beliefs. Although there will be some restrictions since you are a Devil, if you follow the Lord’s will, you will be able to join us.”
Hearing Sister’s reply, Asia was experiencing tears of joy.
“That’s great Asia! You might be able to attend a mass!”
When I said that, Asia said “Yes!” excitedly. She’s really happy right now.
Sister grabbed and pulled Xenovia’s cheek again.
“Sister Asia, if I can ask you a favour, please remain this troublemaker’s friend in the future.”
“Of course! A-And also, I am no longer….”
“At least I will treat you as a Sister.”
Hearing Sister Griselda’s words, Asia nearly fainted. Today must be greatest day of her life; she’s recovering things that she has lost ever since she became a Devil one by one.
This Sister is a very good person indeed.
“Sister Asia, I will teach you how to handle this Sexual-predatory Devil and this Easy-going Devil. Ufufu, I have defeated many Devils before, this much won’t be a problem.”
……I think she will remain strict on me and Xenovia. Irina spoke to Sister Griselda.
“As I have mentioned before, I’m think of showing them what Angels do for their job.”
“Yes, that’s a good idea. For Devils to observe an Angel’s job, I have never felt the feeling of an alliance like this before. Please, enjoy your time. Ace Irina, be careful not to make mistakes.”
“Yes!”
Irina replied strongly.
And like that, we began to observe Angel’s Job.

“Ah, beautiful Angel. Please hear my confession~”
A guy was kneeling down and was giving a confession at this building’s mass hall.
“If it’s ok with me, I will gladly hear your confession.”
Putting a halo on her head and with her wings out, Irina listened to the person’s story. This person is one of the workers in this building so he knows the existence of Angels.
To put it simply, this is [Angel Counselling]. Basically she listen to problems people are having in this mass hall.
“God will surely forgive you for borrowing lots of porno DVDs.”
After hearing the guys’ problem, Irina replied as such. We were sitting on the bench near her, observing her work. The person’s problem was hilarious, but the Irina who is answering the problems of people is also quite funny to look at. Wearing bright white Angel clothes, she also emitted a bright light to increase the holiness; it was so obvious that she’s suppressing her normal behaviour.
“Hey, isn’t her acting a bit obvious?” I turned around toward Asia and Xenovia but…
“………”
“………”
Those two were observing Irina’s work with keen eyes. For them, this must be good experience…. Sadly their way of thinking and mine are very different, probably thanks to different environment we grew up in. I’m feeling sad that I’m not able to experience the same feeling as these two.
Irina continued to hear people’s problems after that.
After two hours of work, she finished her current job and moved onto her next job. Of course, we followed her to her next job as well.
At another mass hall inside the building, she faced a young couple who brought their child.
“Angel-sama, please give this baby a holy name.”
Ah, they came here to ask an Angel to give their child a name.
“Of course!”
Irina accepted and started to scribble something onto paper she prepared.
“Now, I will name him, [Jacob]-kun! Ah, in Japanese, it’s written like this! I gave him an adult name!”
What are you doing, naming a child just like that! It’s obvious that you just thought of a name and forced Japanese words onto the name! At least think before you give people a name!
“Thank you very much, Angel Irina-sama!”
What?! They are happy with the name! Even when she gave a weird name to their child!
“Hm, it’s good name.”
“Yes, as expected from Irina-san.”
Even Xenovia and Asia?! I-I don’t know anymore! I can’t understand their way of thinking!
The next place Irina went was studio inside the building. There was a bunch of cameras and the male cameramen were there ready to shoot. The photographer started to take photos of Irina who changed into a swimsuit!
“That’s great~ Irina-sama, make this pose this time.”
“L-Like this?”
“That’s right! Then here it goes!”
Flashes went off towards Irina who is making cute poses.
…From what I heard later, there’s an internal weekly magazine that’s issued for certain members of this building called [Weekly Brave Angel]. And Irina is being featured in this upcoming issue as Michael-sama’s Ace.
“I heard that Irina-san is quite popular with people who know that Angels exists.” Asia gave me such information.
… She’s like an idol. Wait, aren’t we in the same situation as well? Anyway, it seems like she’s also quite popular in this kind of business.
Well, she’s really cute, so I can understand her being popular but…. Is this really an Angel’s job as well…? This is different from what I had in mind….
After finishing the shoot, the cameraman spoke.
“Fufufu, Irina-sama, you brought your boyfriend here. Is he that rumoured Dragon boyfriend of yours?”
He looked at me…. Oi oi, there’s rumour like that?
Hearing that, Irina’s face went completely red.
“T-T-That’s….! Ise-kun is my childhood friend or something like that…..”
Irina, who was embarrassed, said in a flustered tone of voice.
“Since Irina-san is popular among people here, it will be a shock to male audience if they hear that you have a boyfriend.”
The cameramen laughed heartily after saying that. Irina meanwhile is red in embarrassment.
“…. Are you two going out?”
“Oh ho, so that’s happening.”
Crying Asia and Xenovia are glaring at me!
“H-Hey! Say something Ise-kun!”
Irina is walking toward me… and her foot got stuck on a camera cord and….
“Kyaa!”
She fell towards me! I managed to catch her in time but…. I felt the skin of an Angel through my hands! When I look down, I see that the Swimsuit had fallen off when she fell so my hands were directly touching her breasts!
I-It defiantly has grown! Moreover, the feeling of her skin is amazing! It’s really is an angelic touch!
“Ooooh, Irina-sama! To embrace with your childhood friend here, you sure are bold!”
The cameraman is taking photo of us holding each other! Irina is making a sad face as if to hide her embarrassment.
“….Y-You can’t Ise-kun…. Ha, so this is how you are thinking of crossing the line….”
O-Oi, This is not the time to say that kind of thing! Your wings, they are changing between white and black! You are about to fall! Come on! I’m ok with going with this but you can’t fall just like that!

And someone just then pinched on my cheeks.
“….Let’s stop right there.”
“I’m not going to forgive you if you go first. If you want to, let us four do it together.”
Asia and Xenovia are pinching on my cheeks.
….wait, what did you just say Xenovia?

After that incident, Irina continued her work as Angel which ranges from file management to cooking classes and reception.
….Rather than an Angel, she looks just like a normal worker. But others are relying on her with great expectations, so it looks like Angels are important to the people of Church even if I don’t understand some of the things about it.
Currently, we are taking a break at one of restaurant in this building.
“Ah, today was fun.”
I said truthfully. It was a really interesting experience. This was the first time I came to a building affiliated with the Church, and this was the first time I met with so many people of the Church.
“Today was amazing.”
“Yes, it was really great.”
It seems like Xenovia and Asia are both satisfied with today. That’s to be expected. They were able to experience everything they wouldn’t have been able to do since they have become Devils.
“It seems like you have seen most of the facility.”
Sister Griselda appeared. She had a smile on her face and spoke to us.
“We are about to have practical training for young exorcists, would you like to see?”
Practical training!? Well I’m interested.
“But we couldn’t find any evil spirit for training purpose…. We had a mass extermination not too long ago.”
And she turned her gaze towards me…. Wait, me?
“Since you are a Dragon as well as a Devil, it will be great if you could be their opponent…. What about getting rid of your sexual desires? It’s not good to be perverted.”
When I heard her suggestion, I felt chills down my spine but Asia and Xenovia nodded their heads.
“Yes, it might be good to make Ise-kun less of a pervert.”
“Yes, its ok to be bit perverted but, being too perverted makes girls feel uncomfortable.”
WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?! They are making me less pervert?! No way!
“Irina! Say something!”
I asked her for help but… her face reddened and….
“…I want to have a relationship with Ise-kun where I won’t fall so, I agree?”
….she winked at me! I don’t know if this building is having an effect on them or if Heaven gave them blessings or something but they are becoming more and more Christian like!
“NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! YOU CAN’T GET RID OF MY SEXUAL DESIRES!”
I ran away from there and Xenovia started to chase after me. I made a promise to myself that I won’t go near the Church where they have [Sexual desire = Sin] mentality.
Devils that are tolerant with Sexual Desires are the best!

Life 2: Ultimate!! Onii-chan Mask.

“Ah… this is not good…”

I, Hyoudou Issei, was in middle of a large room, sighing heavily.

Currently, my friends and I are at the Gremory Mansion, the house of Rias Buchou. Nevertheless, it is more fitting to call it a castle rather than a mansion.

Last night, we’ve got a call from Rias Buchou’s mother. She said, “I have a job I would like you guys to help me with.” So that’s why we are here today.

“I would like all of you to sort out all the useless things which Rias bought from Japan.”

She said as soon as she saw us.

From what I’ve heard, Rias Buchou has things that she find interesting in Japan sent back to her house in Underworld. Her room was therefore filled with things which she bought back from Japan.

From a samurai’s armour to a coat of Shinsengumi (TN: Special police organized by Japanese government in 1964.) to even a miniature tower of the Tokyo Tower, the room was filled with souvenirs from all over Japan. Ah, she even has miniature wooden model of a bear – more than one as well!

I would have never have imagined that Buchou’s room in her mansion would be filled with so many things from Japan.

“…I never wanted to show any of you this messy room of mine…”

Rias Buchou blushed while saying that in an embarrassed voice.

…so this is the reason why she didn’t wanted to show her room to us when we came here previously.

Her mother was scolding her,

“This is happening because you aren’t thinking about what you are buying… My goodness, your spending habit is the same as your father. I am going to have to re-evaluate your pocket money again.”

…Oh ho, it seems like she is quite mad. Rias Buchou resembles a lot like her mother. If there is one thing that’s different, it would be the colour of their hair.

So young… if she stands next to Rias Buchou, I could easily mistake them as sisters.

Well, Devils have the ability to change how they look so I can’t tell how old she actually is. But she’s still very pretty.

Anyway, we either need to move Buchou’s stuff to the underground storage or get rid of it. And so, we started to get working straight away.

“Buchou…since there are multiple models of the wooden bear, should I get rid of some?”

When Kiba asked, Buchou started to panic. They were the wooden bears that were sold as souvenirs in Northern Japan.

“Wai…Wait Yuuto! I gave each and every one a ….”

“Yuuto san, we only need one so you can go ahead and throw them out.”

Buchou’s mother interrupted Buchou midway with a serious voice.

“B, But  mother! In Japan, it is said that these objects get enchanted by…”

“Rias. It is good that you are interested in the Japanese culture, but we are not in Japan. They are all the same type of model anyway. You can throw them out, Yuuto san. I will allow it as her mother. Please get rid of it.”

“NOOOOO! Bob! Daikichimaru! Reoooon!”

Having been commanded by Buchou’s mother, Yuuto carried the wooden bears out while also apologising to Rias Buchou. Upon seeing that, Buchou was shouting out the names of wooden bears. It seems the bears consist of both Japanese and Western names then!

At the Hyoudou residence, she acts like a mature and reliable onee sama but since she acts differently at her own house, it was refreshing to watch. Everyone was laughing as they were watching her.

By the way, my eyes were continuously distracted by the giant breasts of Buchou’s mother. Since she is wearing a deep v neck dress, I can see her breasts jiggle.

“I’m sorry but I would like you all to also sort out everyone’s payments that was received while doing the devil’s work. The payments are in the underground treasure storage.”

Grayfia san, who is wearing maid outfit, asked us with her hands full with objects.

“”””YES!””””

We replied.

So, it seems anything we receive through our contract are sent here then. We learned something new today.

“Here, have some tea.”

“Whew. It’s good.”

We were drinking the tea made by Asia and were resting at the corner of the underground storage.

Wow. This place is huge! The entire underground was a treasure storage and it was divided into sections. Also apparently this place is big enough to house several Tokyo Domes.

This place is full of treasures handed down by ancestors. I wonder if other nobles also own a place like this.

By the way, all the treasures are ranked and are sorted by types. Since we were sorting out and moving all the stuff we got as payment to their respective area, we were very tired by the end. Everyone is nearly knocked out.

Assets owned by the super-rich are huge… even if their business went bust they could live off by selling these treasures for long time.

Since I’m going to go independent and make a treasure vault similar to this, I should learn how matters such as this work using this chance.

Ah wait. First I have to rank up and build a mansion first. It’s still long way to go.

When I was resting and drinking tea, I saw a figure, silently gesturing at me…

“Ise kun. Come here for a sec.”

It was a man with a scarlet hair. It’s Sirzechs sama…. Wha, me? It seems like no one noticed him yet. When I pointed at myself, Sirzechs sama also nodded his head.

Seeing that, I ran toward him. So you were at your house today then.

“Sirzechs sama. What’s going on?”

“Hmm. I heard that you were coming to the Gremory mansion so I thought it was about time. I want to show you something. Come with me.”

Hearing that, I was bit confused but I still followed Sirzechs sama regardless.

I came out of the underground storage and walked on the corridor for 10 minutes. Wow, this mansion is huge! I came here multiple times but I’m lost already. Where is this place?!

“We have arrived.”

Sirzechs sama stopped in front of the luxurious, decorated door. Inside….

First thing that came into my eyes was the giant screen! Wow, the seats are arranged like a theatre! There’s a second floor and there also lights too!

Is this the Gremory mansion theatre?

While I was shocked by the size of this theatre, Sirzechs sama sat on the middle seat on ground floor.

“Come here and sit down.”

“Ah, yes.”

I sat next to Sirzechs sama.

“Umm. What is this place?”

Sirzechs sama replied,

“This is a place where we entertain out guests. We use it when we have to present something to the audience but… in truth; we only use it once every few years.”

Once every few years…. There are so many useless luxurious places around here.

While I was amazed by the wasteful habits of the rich people, Sirzechs sama opened what it looked like an album book. Inside, there were plates with things written on it and it was written using the alphabet of the devil.

“….Rias. First bath?”

…what is this? I got curious so I asked Sirzechs sama.

“What are these….?”

Sirzechs sama pulled one out and showed it to me.

“It’s a video recording device used in the underworld. It’s been used for centuries. Nowadays, we are selling video cameras from the human world but for the 72 Pillar houses, we use these instead. I guess it’s more like a tradition? The recording devices are quite similar to video cameras as well.”

Heh, so that’s what it was. Sirzechs sama teleported the plate to somewhere.

Just then, lights turned off and video started to play on the screen. Does the whole theatre run on power of a devil?

“I wanted to show you something nice. This album is a record of Rias’s growth. And I’m about to show you when Rias was just a child.”

…..Buchou’s childhood….?

“I…. I want to see it!”

My curiosity shot up! I can see Rias Buchou’s childhood! Yes, Sirzechs sama brought me here to show me this!

But why is he only showing it to me? Is there a reason why he can’t show it to others? When I was wondering about that, a video started to play on the screen. Sirzechs sama was smiling.

“Hehehe, right? Then let’s watch it together.”

Ah, that face is…! He’s making an expression that shows his desperation to show me this video. If Buchou knows about this, would it not be a huge problem?

[Onii sama you jerk! Ise you idiot!]

And she will definitely be mad at us… I’m worried about what’s going to happen next but I still want to see!

I couldn’t resist my curiosity and decided to watch the video.

“This scene is when Rias was sending me off to work.”

Oh ho, I can feel the warmth between the family members.

Ah, if I remember correctly, I heard this story from Rias Buchou before. When Sirzechs sama was busy with his work, she always send him off and also greeted him when he was at the house.

If I remember correctly….

Rias Gremory’s story.

[I’ll be going off to work Rias.]

[Okay Onii sama. Have a safe trip.]

[Hmm. When I come back, I will tell you a story about the Sephiroth tree and the angels.]

[Okay Onii sama. I will be waiting.]

…it was like this. It felt like a strict atmosphere of upper class and I admired that a little.

As I was still pondering about the story of Rias Gremory, someone made an appearance in the video. It was Sirzechs sama and he looked in the video just like he is today.

There were servants outside of the main gate with Sirzechs sama as well as Buchou’s mother also being present. She was still very beautiful as always!

[Okay then mother. I’ll be going back to work.]

[Yes, please do your best for the Underworld.]

It all seems like an ordinary chat between a mother and her son… Hmm? I can’t see Rias Buchou anywhere…. While I was trying to look for her, I hear a very cute voice.

[Oniiiiii samaaaaa!]

Mini Rias Buchou was holding a teddy bear and was running toward Sirzechs sama.

So cute! It was the same when she was turned into child before but… She’s just so damn cute!!!

Wait, Oniii samaaaa? Did she really say that?!

Sirzechs sama, in the video, smiled and lifted Rias buchou up.

[Rias, what’s wrong?]

Sirzechs sama spoke in a soft voice but tears were running down from mini Buchou’s cute face.

[Oniiiii samaaaaa. You promised Rias that you will read me a story book….. But you are leaving…?]

[I’m sorry Rias, but something important came up. I have to go back to work.]

Hearing that, mini Buchou clung onto Sirzechs sama. He was making an apologetic face.

[Then Rias’s going too!]

[Hmm… that’s bit of a problem…]

When Sirzechs sama was making an apologetic face, Buchou’s mother tried to separate mini Buchou from her Onii sama.

[Rias, don’t make this difficult for your Onii sama. You know that he’s a very important person for the Underworld.]

However mini Buchou was never going to let go of Sirzechs sama this easily.

[No way! Oniiii samaaa is Rias’s Oniiii samaaa!]

[Hahaha. Our Rias is acting like a child.]

That is what I am seeing.

Buchou! Isn’t this bit different to what you were saying before?!

Oniii samaaaa?! Story book?! Forget about talking like an upper class lady. I’m seeing a small child who’s just clinging continuously onto her brother!

Buchou’s mother was sighing in the video.

[Sirzechs, you have a nosebleed…. Honestly, you are spoiling Rias too much.]

I’m sorry Buchou’s mother! Your daughter is so cute that I think I’m going to have a nosebleed too!

“Ria tan was so cute back then.”

…! Maou sama next to me is smiling while also having a nose bleed and tears were on his face?!

“When she was a child, Rias followed me everywhere. She kept saying Oniiii samaaaa and was also very childish. We slept together and we also had baths together. Ah, Ria tan when she was a child…. We can’t go back to those days…. Now she only exist in these records… but Ria tan right now has grown up and is now a beautiful woman so….”

Siscon! There is a massive siscon over here! He’s even talking to himself like he has achieved Nirvana!

This is the Maou everyone! This is the legendary Maou Lucifer!

[Mother, can I take….]

Sirzechs sama in the video asked but his mother just shook her head.

[No way. What are you talking about… you need to say something too. If the Maou of the Underworld is like this, citizens won’t be able to sleep tight at night.]

Buchou’s mother said while looking at the camera.

….who was the person recording this…??..I heard a familiar voice.

[…Ria tan’s face when she is childish is very nice!]

…that was buchou’s father’s excited voice.

What are the son and his father doing?!

“Ah. Father was also having a nosebleed and was also crying in happiness when he saw Rias acting like this.”

Sirzechs sama explained. So that happened?! It seems the reason why Buchou is spoiled is because of you two! When I look closely at the video, even the servants are showing a bitter smile on their face.

Buchou’s mother sighed heavily and said

[….why is the entire male in our house so….]

I thinks so too, Buchou’s mother. But this mini Buchou is so adorable. To be fair, liking this situation isn’t unbelievable. I can understand the males of the Gremory house.

When I was making a bitter smile, Sirzechs sama took another recording plate out and transported it to somewhere again.

The video on the screen changed.

“Next is when she was playing with Sona.”

Sona kaichou? On the screen, there was the mini Buchou and mini Kaichou. They were…

[No! Stella is a gift that Oniiii samaaaa gave to me!]

[Rias is a cheapskate! Let me borrow it for a while.]

They were fighting over a teddy bear.

Just then, a disaster happened.

RIP!

The teddy bear’s ear was ripped apart.

The teddy bear was sacrificed due to these two fighting.

They were looking at the ripped teddy bear with a devastated look in their eyes.

[Uuuuu…. Stella’s ears fall off……]

Shortly, mini Buchou started crying.

[Uuu…. Stella Oniiiii samaaaa gave me broke~~~~~~~~~~~~~!]

Seeing that, little Kaichou also started to cry and apologized.

[Uuuuah! I’m so sorry Riaaaaaa!]

[[Uuuaaaaaaaaa!]]

The two of them clung onto their family while crying. They were Sirzechs sama and Leviathan sama.

[Ahahaha. Don’t cry Ria. I’ll call the maid to fix the ears for you.]

[My my, you shouldn’t cry too So-tan. You apologized so you should be nice to each other again.]

These two were calming their sisters down.

Sirzechs sama and Leviathan sama laughed again.

[I guess we spoil them too much.]

[Yeah, but I still give her a proper education.]

[Our Ria also gets a proper education too.]

[Yes, but our side is still….]

….in the video, the two Maou were having arguments. Having put the two tired children into their own bed, they went back to arguing again.

[….Serafall, I think we need to settle this once for all.]

[Yes Sirzechs. I was thinking that as well.]

The two of them were emitting a weird aura and started to shout at each other immediately.

[OUR RIA IS CUTER!]

[NO WAY, OUT SO-TAN IS LOT CUTER!]

[Then come with me! I will show you video of when Ria tan first sang!]

[Then I will show you a video [So-tan changing clothes by herself for the first time] which I brought from home!]

The two siscon started arguing while showing each other their collection of albums!

….Sirzechs sama and Leviathan sama did something like this…. What could I say? My image of Maou sama was crushed once again.

Just then, Buchou’s mother came into view again.

She was scrunching her forehead and was twitching her eyebrow furiously.

[You two! What are you doing…?]

[M. Mother… umm, this is…. We were talking about Rias and Sona….]

[Ah! We weren’t fighting or anything….]

As they were talking, she was emitting a furious aura and was shaking her fist.

[…Maous of the Underworld showing off their younger sisters and fighting over it…does both of you think you could shoulder the responsibility?! Sirzechs! Come here! I won’t forgive you today! You too Serafall! Your mother was my friend since the days of school! You are therefore like a daughter to me! You are going to reflect your mistake with Sirzechs!]

[Yes….]

[Yes ma’am….]

The two people who were old enough and should have known better were scolded by Buchou’s mother. Not only that, they were both Maous who are responsible for the Underworld.

“Hahaha. Serafall and I could never lift our head up against our mother back then!”

Sirzechs sama was laughing…. I don’t think you can still do that now? Not only that, I don’t think you can do that to your wife, Grayfia sama.

After that, Maou sama continued to show off her sister through another video.

[Thank you very much for coming here tonight.]

Mini Buchou said in a robotic voice. I guess she was nervous on stage.

On the screen, there was a video of mini Buchou playing her piano in a concert.

“Ria-tan’s first piano concert… guest from every Pillars were invited to listen to her piano skills….”

Sirzechs sama continued his siscon narration.

….I don’t know what to feel! Watching how Rias Buchou grew up is both glorious and joyful! But there was also Sirzechs sama, laughing as well as crying sometimes. I just couldn’t concentrate on the video!

Basically….I’m definitely interested in the video, but Sirzechs sama was just too enthusiastic that it made me lose interest.

…Sirzechs sama then took out an expensive looking clock from his coat and checked the time.

“Hmm, it’s already this late. If we stay here for any longer, others might get suspicious.”

Sirzechs sama stopped the video and put the plate away back into the album. When I was looking at the album, I saw a plate that has the word, “SECRET”, written on it in devil alphabet.

Sirzechs sama noticed that I was looking at the plate.

“Are you interested? This… yes, ok….”

Sirzechs sama suddenly stopped talking and started to wonder about something.

What is he thinking about….?

Sirzechs sama said, “Hmm, Ok then.”

The plate was then transferred and the light darkened again with the video beginning to start on the screen.

On the screen was…. Child Buchou when she was sleeping. She was hugging  her teddy bear at the same time as well.

“… Um. Is Buchou… sleeping?”

“Yes, this is….”

The scene changed again…. It was the scene of Buchou sleeping but she is on a sofa this time.

After that, the video of Buchou sleeping continued.

Is this….

“Is this just a collection of Rias Buchou when she is sleeping?”

Sirzechs sama nodded his head. Ah, I knew it.

“This is a record of the sleeping faces of Rias as she is growing up. It’s one of my most treasured records. I do have records from when she was younger but…. I couldn’t get a hold of the scene when she was grown up. It’s shame that it cuts midway of the record.”

Sirzechs sama said while sighing but….

When she was younger it might have been fine but if you do this with high school girls you will absolutely be classified as a pervert!

“So I was thinking…!”

He turned around and grabbed my hands.

“The only person who can follow this path is you, Ise kun. Don’t you want to revive a treasure that was unfinished and has only reached the midway?”

He said something outrageous!

“W. What are you talking about?”

“It is going to be you recording her sleeping face in the future!”

……………..umm…………….

When I gave no answer, Sirzechs sama put his fist up and said in strong voice.

“Then let’s get started tonight! Right! We will do this!”

“Ah? What?”

Even then, I couldn’t understand what Sirzechs sama was saying. But tonight, I will be a step closer to becoming a pervert.

Night time…

Having cleaned the Buchou’s room at the Gremory mansion, we came back to the Hyoudou residence.

When everyone was asleep, Sirzechs sama and I met in an empty room on the top floor of the house.

“It’s good night to capture my younger sister’s face on camera. Agent Hyoudou, don’t you think so too?”

The person who said that was wearing a costume similar to a certain bat that protected a certain city in a certain movie with the person being Sirzechs sama. This is beyond the point of being a suspicious and outright pervert. I was in a pyjamas on the other hand.

“…Yes, Sirzechs sama.”

Having heard my reply, Sirzechs sama clicked his finger.

“What are you saying? I’m not Sirzechs. I’m the leader of [Recording Ria tan’s sleeping face Force] Onii chan mask!”

I don’t know what I should say. He was posing in such a weird way that Sirzechs… no…. I should refer to him as Onii chan mask…!

Please! Go back to that certain city! Actually, go back to the Underworld instead! This place is peaceful! Your presence ruins the peace!

This person, it seems like he only plays around through cosplay. Does he actually do any business related to being a Maou?

“Listen carefully agent Hyoudou. Our objective is just one thing. Record the sleeping face of Rias Gremory. By the way, it will be you who’s recording this. Only you can do this.”

Onii chan mask said this and gave me a camera.

“… I normally sleep with her anyway. Can’t I record it then?”

I made a long face. That seems like the simplest method… but Onii chan mask shook his head.

“We can’t do that, it’s not good if you are striving for continuity as well as consistency. Listen carefully! Recording a face when someone is sleeping is something you do even when you don’t think you should. What you do is you quieten your footstep, sneak into the room and you record either the face of a cute child or a female model or even your loved one without getting found out. The thrill is definitely worth something!”

…It doesn’t matter even if he says it confidently… at the end of the day, you are still doing something only perverts would do. It’s a crime! And what do you mean by continuity?! This kind of Maou, I hate it!

“Did you also do this to Grayfia san?”

“Of course.”

“And the result was?”

“Nearly died. For the first time, I felt like I had an experience closest to death.”

My god! He literally crossed the border of death! Even if you are a family, if you do that kind of perverted things, girls won’t like it. They will be furious! Not only that, that person was someone who competed for the Greatest Female Devil against Leviathan sama! A Little prank like this could cost your life!

“But don’t worry. You will be the one who is going to record the face so you probably will be safe. Just leave the Underworld to me.”

“Uuu. How come I’m hanging around with people like this…”

I’m about to cry! The person who’s on top of the Devil society is pressuring me!

As I got closer with Sirzechs sama, I got to know his not so serious side! I am beginning to understand why it’s so casual between the four Maous!

“I would like you to continue to do this after me! Only you can record Rias’s sleeping face in the future! I can only ask you to do this! You can think of today as a ceremony of inheritance! Ok! I will start giving the commands from here. Move out!”

Saying that, Sirzechs sama send me off. Uuu. What is happening…. I’m doing what he does for a hobby. And what do you mean inherit it….

I put a pair of earphones into my ears and moved out from the top floor.

The destination is my room in the second floor. Currently, Rias Buchou and Asia is sleeping there. I went to bed with them but after checking that they are both asleep, I went to Sirzechs sama.

I managed to get out of my room unnoticed but there is always a chance I can be spotted when I try to re-enter my room.

…I did my best to quieten my footstep and I also tried to lower my presence. What am I doing? This is my house. Why do I have to act like a thief in my own house?

Wait, let’s not think about it. It’s making me even more upset.

When I reached the 4th floor, I heard a voice from my earphones.

[Where are you right now. Over]

“I’m on the 4th floor. Over”

[Roger, keep going. Over.]

It’s like we are playing spy. Sirzechs sama was serious, but I think he’s enjoying this.

…Let’s not think any more. When I was about to go down…

“…Ise kun?”

Someone called me. And I heard footsteps from the stairs.

….it was Akeno san wearing Yukata! She had her hair down and she was coming up from downstairs!

“…Akeno san…”

This can’t be good! I didn’t expect to find her here! My expression stiffened.

“…What are you doing here in the middle of the night…?”

She was showing a confused face. Ah, she is holding a tea bottle. I guess she was thirsty so she went to the first floor to get it? Talk about bad timing!

When I was thinking of ways to escape this situation…

“I…I wanted to see Akeno san….”

I said that with a stiff expression on my face.

What am I saying! Saying “I wanted to see you” to a woman in the middle of the night! It’s like saying I want to take her to bed! Well, actually I want to but Buchou will kill me!

I was panicking but Akeno san blushed and started to tear up a little.

…W. What is with that reaction…

“I’m so happy… You wanted to see me…”

Hu. Akeno san hugged me tightly! The texture of her busty body which I can feel over the thin fabric of the yukata is… Wait, this feeling on the chest is… No bras?!

Akeno san’s breasts pushed against me over the thin fabric. I’m going to die! I’ll die if I stay like that!

I had a nose bleed. This isn’t good at all for the mission! Will it be better if I tell the truth and ask for her cooperation?

“A. Actually, Akeno san… ”

I want to tell the truth, but Akeno san is saying “I’m happy, Ise” so I couldn’t open my mouth.

Not only that, she noticed the camera that I was holding! Is it too late now?! It doesn’t make sense wanting to meet someone with a camera on their hand!

“…Camera? Ise kun, do you want to…. record ‘that’ with me…?”

She’s gravely mistaken! Recording a woman during night is something only perverts do! If I stay like this, Akeno san will come to hate me!

But Akeno san acted like she was more embarrassed than angry.

“….Ise…. do you want to record our first time….? But… if Ise wants to…”

Akeno san was talking to herself while blushing. What should I do?! She’s expecting something from me! Actually, I want to quit doing the stupid thing with Maou sama and play with her all night!

While I was stuck there, I heard a voice from my earphones.

[Is there something wrong? If that’s the case, point the camera at the person and press the blue button. Over.]

I don’t know if he knows what situation I’m in right now but, Onii chan mask gave me a solution to this problem. S. So point the camera at the person and …. Blue button? Ah, this one.

When I pressed the button… it made a vibrating sound and a small magic circle came out of the lenses!

And it hit Akeno san directly!

“…Ara…?”

Her eyes lost focus, she lost her consciousness and collapsed at that spot. I caught her before she fall on the ground.

[That camera has a few features that you can use to avoid troubles. If you press the blue button, a sleeping spell is activated. Over.]

Onii chan mask explained.

….Sleeping spell came out from this camera! This thing, what else can it do?!

“…I met someone and the situation got bit sticky. I used the camera’s ability to put her to sleep. Over”

[Roger. Please carry on with your mission. Over . Ah, put her back into her bed first. Over.]

“Roger. Haa…..”

I carried the sleeping Akeno san back to her room while sighing.

After I put Akeno san back to her bed and came out of the room, I felt someone’s presence!

“….Nyan…. Senpai…?”

This time, half asleep Koneko chan appeared! That’s right, Koneko was living in the same floor as Akeno san.

But is your pyjamas just white shirts?! Although I’m not a lollicon, I am a little charmed by it.

If it was normal Koneko, she would have been suspicious of me with a camera on my hand and would have asked questions but….

“…Nyaaa….. Senpai… Toilet…..”

Toilet? Koneko was saying that and hugged me tightly!

…hu! This… feeling is! I can’t feel any underwear underneath the shirt! All I can feel was a soft sensation of a woman’s body!

Koneko’s bottom had such a soft touch! No panties! No panties! Koneko chan, you can’t walk around with no panties! Wait, you aren’t wearing bras as well?!

I can also see something small and something immoral can be seen through the opening of the shirt!

Koneko becomes vulnerable when she’s asleep! If it was during day time, she would have punched me for being so perverted! But right now, she just purrs in a low voice and give her body to me! Is this some kind of nekometa special moves?!

Shit! My kohai is really cute!

I was trying my best to keep my sanity and took her to the toilet.

After doing so, I put her back to bed and then I managed to get downstairs. 3rd floor is where my parents sleep so I was extra careful.

Finally, I have arrived at my room.

….why do I have to go through this much hardship just to get to my room? I was pondering that when I suddenly heard a voice that caused the entire problem with the voice being the siscon Maou sama.

[Please tell me the current situation. Over]

“I have arrived. I will start the mission. Over”

[I wish you luck. Over.]

Haa…. Now, let’s quickly film Buchou’s sleeping face and end this as soon as possible.

I made as little sound as possible opening the door and walked in.

One step, two steps… I lowered my presence as much as possible and walked toward the bed.

On the bed, Buchou and Asia were sleeping soundly.

….Buchou kicked off half the bed sheet she was using and thanks to that, I could see her negligee.

It was made up of a thin scarlet fabric. So erotic! Her legs were exposed and since the shoulder string came off, half of her breasts were exposed!

Breasts! Butts! Thighs! I can sing about these three words!

I thought to myself…I’m sleeping with an onee sama who wears sexy clothes like this every night. Nowadays, since I’m so used to sleeping together, when I get on the bed, I fall asleep straight away.

It became so natural to sleep with Buchou and Asia.

If I remember correctly, Buchou sleeps with these clothes and hugs me. Thanks to that, I could use her breasts as my pillows sometimes.

….Here within my reach is the best woman.

gulp

I swallowed my saliva and pulled on my hairs!

I’m always in this situation every night and why haven’t I took advantage of this situation at all?! Uuuuuu! I’m pathetic! I’m a pathetic idiot!

[Agent Hyoudou, is there something wrong? Over.]

I heard voice of the siscon maou sama when I was deep in thought. Ah, that’s right. I was part of this stupid game planned by Onii chan mask.

“No, I was just having a conflict of youth. I have arrived at the destination; I will carry out the mission. Over.”

[Roger. Quickly record Rias’s sleeping face and return. Over.]

Hm, that’s right. I need to quickly film her face and return. Well, it’s quite weird saying return since this is my room.

That’s that. But her sleeping face is so cute. She’s beautiful and cute!

I could understand Sirzechs sama’s reason to ‘record Buchou’s sleeping face’ a bit now. He wants to keep this as a memory. It’s a face that you want to keep.

And he wants me to carry on the work…. I might not be that bad. I was thinking that.

When I was about to take out the camera and film her face…

Buchou slowly opened her eyes!

“…Ara, Ise? …what are you  doing?”

She was rubbing her eyes and slowing sitting up! This is bad! She woke up!

I panicked and since I didn’t know what to do, I just hid the camera behind my back.

“A, Ah, I was just thinking that your sleeping face was very cute.”

I was avoiding the eye contact. Buchou yawned and had a smile on her face.

“Ara, what are you saying suddenly?”

She got out of her bed and hugged me! Her soft breasts pushed against me! So soft!

Woah! Buchou’s breasts are the best! Not only that, as she got up, the string from her clothes came off so her breasts that were under the clothes showed themselves! Even her pink nipples!

Buchou put her arms around my neck and pushed her face closer to mine.

“….shall we sleep in a different way?”

“D. Different way…?”

When I asked with nose bleed, she just laughed

“Ufufufu. Yes, let’s be closer to each other.”

“Closer?”

“Yes, let’s sleep naked and while hugging, we can just cuddle with each other. But we did sleep like that before so maybe it won’t have good reaction?”

“….no way! It’s the best!”

Sleep naked?! I. Is erotic stuff not allowed, or allowed?! Are we just sleeping naked?! But naturally, we might do something more serious?!

If two young male and female sleep naked with each other, the only natural thing to do after is ‘that’!

But I’m in the middle of a mission with Onii chan mask… Sirzechs sama!

But! Since it became like this I want to forget about that and just sleep! Maou sama! In all honesty, I just want to abort this mission and sleep! Buchou’s breast pillows are the best!

When I thought it might do whatever I wanted to….

[Agent Hyoudou. How is it going on? Agent Hyoudou, have you recorded it yet? Over.]

Onii chan mask’s voice came from the earphones.

“Just now… didn’t I hear onii sama’s voice?”

Buchou reacted to small voice from my earphones! Since this is the middle of the night, you might be able to hear it!

Buchou looked at me with hawk’s eyes and noticed camera behind my back and earphones on my ear.

After taking the camera from me, she put the earphones into her ear.

“…this voice. Onii sama? What are you doing?”

She’s glaring at me….

“Huuuuuu…. What’s happening?”

Asia woke up too!

Sirzechs sama, mission failed. It’s over.

“What’s happening here?”

Her anger gauge was at max. She was glaring at us with scary eyes. Next to her, Asia didn’t know what to do but was just observing the situation from the side. Asia, I am sorry for waking you up.

Onii chan mask and I was kneeling down in the room on the top floor.

“There is a reason for this.”

When Onii chan mask started to explain, Buchou sighed.

“Before that onii sama, please take off that mask and costume.”

Hearing that, onii chan mask made a cool pose

“Ahahaha! I am not your onii sama, Rias Gremory! I’m leader of [Recording Ria tan’s sleeping face Force] Onii chan mask!”

“Grayfia… shall I call onee sama?”

When she said that with a plain face, Onii chan mask… Sirzechs sama took off his mask quickly and apologized.

“I was wrong. I’m sorry Rias.”

Weak! So weak Onii chan mask! Are you that afraid of your wife?!

So Sirzechs sama explained this whole situation.

Saying he wanted to record his cute little sister and saying that he wanted me to continue recording her grown up stage.

She was as mad as she could ever be. Not only that, her body was shaking furiously.

“…Rias. What’s wrong?”

Sirzechs sama was confused at her sister’s reaction. Just then, her anger exploded on both of us.

“Onii sama you jerk! Ise you idiot! If only Ise had asked me….Onii sama you have to do all this just to….I don’t know about onii sama but if it was you……”

Buchou glared at me. In her eyes, there were hints of tears….

And she walked out of the room quickly.

“Ah, Rias onee sama!”

Asia followed her.

“H. Hey, so I’m not allowed?”

Hearing [I don’t know about onii sama] was so shock to Maou sama.

“No you can’t.”

Ku. There was another person’s voice! Looking at the direction of the voice, there was a silver haired maid with a dangerous aura all over her body! Grayfia san! W. When did she arrive?!

“Sirzechs sama, I heard everything. Now, let’s go back.”

Grayfia san grabbed Sirzechs sama’s clothes. Underneath her, there was already a magic circle.

“I. I’m in the wrong, please forgive me, Grayfia.”

“I’ll hear your excuses back in the mansion. We can wait right?”

Grayfia san was emitting a tremendous force and Sirzechs sama went pale.

Please reflect on your mistake Sirzechs sama. I will leave him to Grayfia sama. So now, Buchou….

“Issei san, you have something to tell the lady right?”

“Yes! I have to apologize to her”

Yes, I have to apologize to her! Even if it was Sirzechs sama that made me do it, it’s true that I tried to take videos of the sleeping face of Buchou without her permission.

I’m such a terrible servant! I must have hurt her feelings!

Hearing my reply, Grayfia san gave me a smile.

“Yes, please do. Now, Sirzechs sama. Let’s return to the Underworld with me.”

“Y. Yes, then I’ll leave the rest to you, Ise kun…. But I wonder what will happen to me….”

After seeing them off, I quickly went to my room.

The door was wide open. When I looked inside, I saw a bed sheet budged in the middle. Buchou must be inside there.

…I was careless, and was enjoying it a bit too much. This is the worst! My indecent mind must have hurt Buchou’s feelings!

“…I’m sorry.”

I apologized and moved towards the bed.

“Even if I got involved with Sirzechs sama’s hobbies I was insensitive…. Trying to take picture of Buchou’s face while you were sleeping…. But please hear me out.”

I told her my feeling.

“It was such a cute face! It’s so cute that… I understand Sirzechs sama’s feelings… I still want to sleep with you.”

I continued. I didn’t think I should stop. I had to tell her my true feeling. Even if I am still going to get told off by her later,  I still want to tell her the truth!

“I think of us as a family. When we are together, I can relax. And I want to sleep together. That’s not because… ah, maybe it’s sexual… wait, what am I saying…? I mean… the sensation when we hug maybe….”

This isn’t good! My thought is going the wrong way! Come on!

“I want to sleep together with you! Please show your cute face only to me! Please, let’s sleep together!”

I told her my true feelings! Haaaa. If this wasn’t enough… then I’ll apologize tomorrow as well! Then my feeling will definitely reach her!

Buchou moved a little. And she slowly showed her face……

Wwwhhhhaaaaattttttt?!

I was so surprised at the face that came out of the bed sheet that my eyes might have popped out!

“…I… I didn’t think…. Issei senpai… thought of me like that….”

It was a cross dressing kohai, Gasper!

Why is this guy here?! Gasper blushed not knowing my surprise.

“I appreciate the words but this is the first time…. And we are both boys as well….”

Stop it Gasper! you are cute outside but you are still a guy! I’m not interested in guys!

“W. What are you doing here?!”

“….I. I decided that I will sleep here tonight…. I can sleep anywhere as long as I have my box…. So I’m currently using an empty room here….”

I didn’t know that! When did you decide?!

That’s right! This guy and Koneko are friends! If he played with her until late night and decided to sleep here, it won’t be that weird! But why is he here?

“I. I couldn’t sleep well… s. so I wondered if Issei senpai was still awake…. But no one was here and there was only a big empty bed…. So I was curious how soft these beds were…”

So he came while I was caught and was at the top floor. I thought Buchou came back here!

Gasper said in strong voice like he made a decision.

“I. If I’m alight, I will sleep with you… b. but please don’t do strange things to me… I’m a guy….”

“I’m not gonna do it even if you ask me. You idiot!”

Ahhhhhh! I can’t believe it! he’s gravely mistaken!

BANG!

There was a sound of something dropping behind me. When I turned around, it was Buchou and Asia standing in front of the door! On the floor was a tray full of snacks!

“…Ise, what is going on here….?”

Her eyes started to twitch and emitted dangerous aura!

“B. Buchou! Asia! Where were you both?!”

“We went to the kitchen. Rias onee sama said ‘I want to relieve my stress by eating some snacks’”

Asia filled me in the detail! My god! Kitchen?! So she was relieving some stress by eating some snacks! So she didn’t come straight back to the room!

Buchou’s body started to shake and glared at me with a killing intent.

“Onii sama and now Gasper! I’m going to interrogate you until morning so be prepared Ise!”

“I’m SOOOOOOOO SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRYYYYYYYYYY!”

At the end, I had to apologise until the morning to get rid of all the misunderstandings.

I think I’m going to pass on being part of Sirzechs’ sama’s hobby. But I have this feeling that I’m going to be messed around a lot.

Grayfia san, Help!!!!!!!!!!!!

Translator: daniel yang

Editor: Alexis138

We (DxD) and the members of the “Brave Saints” have gathered inside the frontline base of First Heaven.

In the centre of the room, we were being shown the situation of each floor through a live broadcast.

Evil dragons are attacking everywhere! The enemies infiltrated the Second, Third and the Fourth Heaven and are fighting against an army of Angels!

One of the Brave Saints reported, “The enemies have completely taken control of the Third 『Heaven』 where human souls reside in!”

A giant, floating city was visible on the screen.  The Third Heaven was said to be enormous but how did Agreas appear out of nowhere?!

The evil dragons are coming out of Agreas!

From the screen, we also recognised some familiar faces.

“…Ladon, Walburga of the Purple Flames and even Crom Cruach!”

Evil Dragon Ladon and Witch Walburga were going wild as they were defeating the angels everywhere!

Only Crom Cruach was showing no interest in fighting as he effortlessly avoided the attack from the Angels.

While watching the screen, I questioned, “How the hell did Qlippoth get here? Unlike the Underworld, Heaven is surely not a place where you can just force your way in?”

I thought that, unlike the Underworld where there were several more ways to get in, the ways to get into Heaven were limited.

Suddenly, someone familiar came into view and answered my question.

“…probably through Hell…”

It was Azazel sensei, who is currently in the human world.

“How is it down there, Azazel?”

Rias asked

Sensei just shook his head.

“All the passages to Heaven are blocked from here as well so I don’t think we’ll be able to bring in reinforcement anytime soon.”

Like sensei said, the door to the human world was closed and we could not open it here. It seems like it was impossible from there as well.

“Is the cause still unknown?”

Sister Griselda nodded her head.

“Yes, the Seraphs are currently investigating the cause but they are also busy trying to prevent the enemies from reaching level 7. On top of that, all the lifts are not functional at the moment.”

The power of the barrier that is protecting the 『System』 at the seventh floor was increased because if that floor gets captured, it will be over for all of us.

Not only the Sacred Gear, but the Heaven and the root of the Religion will also collapse. I don’t even want to imagine what will happen after!

“Sensei! What do you mean by Hell…?”

I asked, seeking an answer from Sensei.

“There are only limited ways to get to Heaven. They can either advance through the proper procedure like you guys or they can die and get accepted to Heaven. They can even get through using other locations.”

Having heard this, Sister Griselda realised something.

“—The Limbo or the Purgatory!?!”

Sensei nodded

“Yes it is different from Heaven or the Underworld because while Heaven and the Underworld are places where people arrive to after they are dead, the Limbo as well as the Purgatory are reserved for people who died with circumstances.

Regardless of whom the person is, his or her sin is cleansed upon arrival to one of those places and is sent to Heaven. The Limbo or the Purgatory therefore, pretty much becomes the door to get to Heaven. Surely, you guys already knew that?”

Sensei looked at us.

“In the church, the Limbo or the Purgatory is also called 「Hades」. God in the bible is said to have created those two places based on Hell. Well, this is all a theory though. On the other hand, the God of Hell, Hades, might know how to get to the Limbo or the Purgatory.  Maybe he managed to create a way.”

An Angel appeared with a report.

“A report came in! We have confirmed that the door from the Purgatory to the third Heaven was breached!”

–! Sensei’s theory was spot on!

Damn it! Did Hades allied with Qlippoth? That is likely; he hated the Angels as well as the Fallen Angels! He must have hated Heaven as well!

Even if the leader of Qlippoth is the son of the old Lucifer, it’s most likely that he has assisted the terrorists if he is able to cause havoc here.

“I’ve heard a report that the Legendary Evil Dragon, Apophis, joined Hades after he was resurrected by the Holy Grail.”

Sister Griselda said.

“From the legend, Apophis is a dragon who was affiliated with Hades, so it isn’t anything unexpected. However, would Hades have assisted them without any benefits to him? It’s not been that long ago since he received a warning from Brother and Azazel.” Rias spoke.

Hades was in trouble for cooperating with the Hero Clan and he did make Sirzechs sama and Azazel sensei furious. Michael san was also disappointed by it so it is not wise to do something like scheming against the large 3 factions this soon.

“……latest information we’ve got from Euclid is that some of the Legendary Evil Dragons is starting to not be under the control of Rizevim. They are Crom Cruach, Azi Dahaka and Apophis. These three…well…they apparently made a deal.”

“…Deal?”

“Yes. 「if you agree with the condition, I’ll let you go.」 or something like that. We don’t know the specific detail but the deal probably is something along the lines of 「it doesn’t matter which side, make a contract with God」. I don’t know about the other two but Apophis probably made a contract with Hades. Through that contract, Qlippoth attained information on how to get to Heaven from Hades. That is what I think.”

….That’s unacceptable….!

“Qlippoth will say 『we’ve let go of Apophis and the others』 or 『they escaped』 as their excuse and will tell us that the escaped dragons made a contract with God on their own.  Hades will probably say that he just made a contract with a stray Dragon and he didn’t cooperate with Qlippoth]! The three factions will not believe it. Right?!”

I shouted.

Just because Hades got himself an Evil Dragon by his side, that doesn’t mean cooperation between Hades and Qlippoth will be allowed by the three factions.

 “…I know. However that’s only a theory for now. We will try to open the gate to heaven from our side. You guys also try to open the gate on your side as well.” Sensei said while narrowing his eyes toward me.

The “Brave Saints” nodded and went back to carry on with their task.

“What is their objective?”

Xenovia questioned while frowning.

“Could it be the 『System』?”

Asia asked but Sensei shook his head.

 “It’s not that easy. First of all, nobody but the Seraphs can enter that place. If something else were to get in there, it would teleport them forcefully to another location. But we don’t know what they will do. It is therefore necessary for Michael to increase the defence up there.”

“You sound like you had an experience like this before.”

Sensei replies,

 “Well….. I got blasted over to the border of the Human world. I just wanted to have a look at the system of the Sacred Gear but God was not pleased about that.”

“So are they targeting the main HQ on the Sixth floor?”

I took a guess but Sensei also discarded my theory.

 “Get there and then what? Annihilate the Seraphs? Well, they can always try to take that action but if all the Seraphs team up, they won’t leave unscathed.”

“You mean they have a different objective?”

 “Yes because even with their current forces, the floors that they are able to get up to is limited.”

“What about the Fifth floor, where you used to be? Is it not now a laboratory?”

“What? To get to the Fifth floor so that they can steal the cards of the「Brave Saint」? Well, they might be interested in the studies that are being researched in Heaven right now.”

Sensei asked Sister Griselda,

 “Griselda, how is the Tree of Life on the third floor and the Tree of Knowledge on the fourth floor?”

“Both trees are in great health, but fruits have not been produced by them for a long time. They have stopped producing fruits after the Lord, Jesus, died.”

Having heard this, Sensei started to wonder as he was deep in thoughts.

“…Sensei?”

“「Qlippoth」 is the opposite of the Tree of life and they are the terrorists who are named after it. It wouldn’t be weird if that is their target. With the fruits of those Trees, they can release the seal on 666 faster as well.  Using that, they can also negotiate with beings who hate us who are on the level of a God.”

While we were pondering about the enemy’s objective, a new image came through.

That person who possessed the Ama-no Murakumo-no-Tsurugi was walking through the fifth floor!

Looking at that image, Sister Griselda frowned.

“That’s not good. That’s where we moved Governor Shidou for the final stage of the treatment!”

『一?!』

Everyone was shocked!

“…Papa!”

Irina shouted after watching the broadcast.

That person is definitely targeting Irina’s Dad! If we don’t take actions now, that guy will—

“—let’s hurry! We can’t just sit here and do nothing! We are the DxD, anti-terrorist team! Let us get rid of the evil dragons while we are going up!”

Rias shouted and she said to Irina immediately,

“Irina, you go to Fifth floor! We’ll clear the path for you!”

After hearing that, Irina nodded while in tears.

“Yes! I’m the Ace of Michael sama! I’m going to defeat the evil dragons and save papa!”

We don’t know the enemy’s objective but it seems like our objective is straight forward and easy to understand! Let us defeat the intruders and save Irina’s father!

 “I will send in reinforcement as soon as the door is open! All of you must be careful!”

“YES!”

In order to get to the Fifth floor, we need to go past the doors on every single floor.

The enemy unfortunately already invaded the third floor, took control of the door to the second floor, the door to the fourth floor as well as the back door of the fourth floor.

Currently we are invaded by the enemy from the second to the fifth floor! The Sisters and the Angels believed that the forces of Heaven are able to just repel the attack on the second floor since the second floor is closer to the first floor where the HQ is situated.

Qlippoth however have the advantage from the third to the fifth floor.

Since Michael sama and a few other Seraphs are defending the sixth floor, the enemy were not able to invade that floor. We received a message that they headed towards the fifth floor with their servants.

The number of Evil Dragons here nevertheless is definitely higher than the amount that we fought back in Auros Academy. Since we don’t expect any reinforcement, we needed to defeat all the Evil Dragons with the remaining forces that are available.

Due to the lift having stopped working, we had to progress through every floor in order to advance. We charged from the second floor entrance towards the entrance of the third floor.

The second floor is filled with darkness as this is apparently where they observe Stars and confine Angels who sinned.

It was so dark that one would doubt whether they are in Heaven. Even so, it wasn’t total darkness since stars were shining. It does not matter whether the place was totally dark as we, being Devils, would be fine seeing things in dark.

“Move!”

While we were blasting the evil dragons away, we saw the 『Brave Saints』 fighting the evil dragons as they were forming their formations.

“Let’s go! 『Brave Saints』! Get into the Full House Formation!”

““““YES!””””

Angels according to their sets flew up into the sky and started to fill the sky with brightness. A powerful aura is suddenly emitted and we were able to feel it even all the way here.

Having assembled the Full House Formation, the 『Brave Saints』 pounced towards the hordes of evil dragons and defeated them! The evil dragons were mass produced, but they were still very powerful. Even so, the Brave Saints were able to blast away several evil dragons at once.

One of the Brave Saints commanded his fellow Angels,

“Team up with those in the same suit and defeat the dragons in one go!”

““““Straight Flush!””””

Sister Griselda stopped and said to us,

“I will stay and command the lines here!”

Sister Griselda, as well as taking command, also warned the 『Brave Saints』,

“Be cautious when you’re using the strong sets! It drains your physical and mental power!”

We were within the sight of the entrance to the third floor but there was a figure in the shadows that was blocking our way and he was emitting a dangerous aura.

“Oh my, it’s been awhile.”

Ladon has appeared!

Accompanying him were squads of evil dragons, blocking the entrance!

“I would appreciate it if you can entertain me for a bit.”

He was always trash talking but it seems like he meant it actually this time. The dark aura surrounding him was expanding more and more. His eyes were burning red! Suddenly we were trapped in a bubble like cell!

It was the seal that could regenerate itself over and over again! The fight before was difficult because of this! Now, not only me, but my friends are trapped as well!

“ku!”

“Damn it”

Kiba and Xenovia tried to break the barrier with their swords but they weren’t able to keep up with the regeneration power of the barriers.

If we keep wasting our time on him, Irina’s dad will be….

Irina became more anxious and started to go wild with Hauteclaire, which she received from her dad.

“Hey! Let me go! If I don’t, papa will…!”

However, in spite of her effort, Ladon’s barrier kept regenerating itself over and over again.

“No choice then, we have to destroy the source of it.”

Light came out from the Rias’s hand. It seems like she is about to use Extinguished Star! That will be able to destroy both the barrier and Ladon. But, he isn’t just going to let it happen.

“Nope, that won’t do.”

The eyes of Ladon lightened up and Rias’s hand was covered within his barrier! With that, the Power of Destruction also disappeared from her hand. Fighting him with the power type is too hard because he’s just sealing away all of our powers!

When I was about to put on my armour…

…a strip of light came into contact between us and Ladon!

At that moment, the barrier that was trapping us disappeared.

Our attention was on the light that struck the ground and I saw a spear.

“–Still using brute force? Greetings, Sekiryutei and the Gremory servants.”

–huh!?

We were all surprised at his arrival. In front of us was a young man dressed in Chinese styled clothes. He pulled out the spear from the ground and tapped his shoulder with it while standing in front of Ladon.

Ladon narrowed his eyes and said

“What an interesting development. Holy Spear…….”

The Holy spear, one of the Longinus, appeared in front of us in the form of the True Longinus. Just like last time during the battle at Auros Academy, the spear appeared from the sky.

This time though, its owner also appeared with it.

“–Cao Cao!”

The man that appeared in front of us is the ex-leader of the Hero Faction, Cao Cao! We’ve heard that he descended into Hell after losing to us, but eventually came back and went under the command of Sakra.

I asked loudly,

“What are you doing here…?”

Cao Cao was wearing an eye patch and gave an unpleasant smile as he was answering my question,

“I was thinking that I should go and hunt down the evil dragons. Like them, I used the path from the Purgatory”

Did he find the path while in Hell?

Cao Cao pointed his spear towards Ladon.

Ladon then gave a disturbing laugh

“…So… the person who is said to be most powerful Longinus user appeared.”

“I’ll take this one. Sekiryutei, defeat the enemy like you defeated me if you are a hero…” he said to me

Cao Cao pointed his spear at the door this time.

“Go.”

Having seen that, Ladon laughed

“Oh my…For a Holy Spear to interfere….”

Rias gave me a command,

“Ise! Asia! Xenovia! Go with Irina! We will take this place!”

“Like Ladon said, someone who was once banished is interfering. Consider yourself lucky.” Cao Cao said after Rias.

Is this what they call an unexpected luck?! It is pretty likely that if Rias, the DxD members, and Cao Cao join forces, they can defeat Ladon and all the evil dragons!

I gave a look towards Asia, Xenovia and Irina. Those three nodded their head and I told Cao Cao quickly,

“You better not lose after that fancy entrance.”

He just smiled and fired a light beam towards the evil dragons. There was a massive explosion and groups of the evil dragons were instantly blown away! His power really is not something to mess with.

Spinning his spear, he said confidently,

“I lost because I was foolish and I underestimated humans. I don’t need Medusa’s eye or Chaos break. I just need to take pride being a hero as well as a human and this Holy Spear. I decided not to underestimate any dragons ever again.”

Wow… Frightening. The only reason why I was able to win against him before was because he was relying on a power that didn’t belong to him and that became his weakness. Now, I can only feel an uncomfortable aura around him.

“Rias! Everyone! I’ll leave it to you guys!”

I yelled loudly to everyone and I made my way with Asia and Xenovia as well as Irina to the third floor.

As I was progressing, Cao Cao murmured just loud enough so only I was able to hear him,

“The beings that always have the power to defeat monsters are 『Human』.”
