Everybody, please check the FAQ first before asking me questions.
If it’s not on there, please feel free and ask. I only get annoyed at questions when the same one has been asked 10+ times, and by then I’ll have updated the FAQ.

Thank you for your consideration, guys!

Chapter 28 – Jessica and the Werewolf

No sooner had the roar come from above, did the ceiling crumble and break. Martial General Basten made his appearance. He looked like a wolf which made him a beastman, but his strength was on another level. The mana that clad him was on a different magnitude to a beastman’s. Together with his dignity, he was clearly different from a normal vampire. It made sense that he called himself a general.

“Girl. Your name?”

Basten spoke to Tilea-san. But Tilea-san didn’t realise he was talking to her, and started looking around.

Nono, Tilea-san, however you look at it, he’s talking to you. Please think back to all the things you’ve done.

“I think he’s talking to you, Tilea-san.”

“Eh!? Eh!? M-, Me?”

“Indeed. Arcune, Horus, Bebe… I want to know the name of the one who defeated three of four, proud Malferand Knights.”

“H-, How did you know it was me?”

“Hmph. I followed the scent on their corpses. Every one of them have your scent on them.”

“B-, By scent…”

“Indeed. With my sense of smell, it was an easy task… Well? Your name?”


“What’s wrong? Your name! HURRY AND SPEAKK!”

“Y-, Yes, it’s Tilea.”

“I see. Then Tilea, I shall be avenging my comrades!”

Basten prepared for battle. The atmosphere began to quake as the mana transmitted through the air.

W-, What incredible mana!

Demons really are on a different scale to us. But even so, Tilea-san can do something about this.

“Now, Tilea-san. Please use your kukanomi as usual to…”

“I-, It’s no good… H-, How could this happen.”



Eh? What’s that mean? She won’t be throwing kukanomi like usual?

“UWAHH! I’ll be killed! S-, Somebody… I-, I know! I-, It’s your turnnn! Slaughter Sword Ozuma-san! Blue Comet Shaben-san! Samidare Shogun Shana-san!”

Tilea-san began begging the F-rank adventurers to save her. Everyone seemed to be stunned by the sudden appearance of the demon, but Tilea-san’s loud voice woke them up.


“S-, Somebody call the Public Safety Forcee!”

“H-, Hiii! W-Why is a demon here!?”

They discarded their prided weapons and ran left and right. Even if it’s a demon, aren’t you guys too panicked? Even a new student at the Academy wouldn’t act so shamefully.

Well, maybe it can’t be helped. Even an A-ranked adventurer wouldn’t stand a chance against this Basten demon.

To say nothing of F-rankers…

“Tsk. A noisy bunch of flies, aren’t you.”

In that instant, a flash of demonic light struck from his hands. It was so fast I didn’t even see him move. All the adventurers were killed in an instant. Some of them had their heads sliced in two, the brain tissue spilling out. Others were bisected from top to bottom, and all kinds of viscera splashed from inside.

“Now then, the nuisances are out of the way. Time to――”

“I-, It’s bad! A demon’s appeared! Enemy attack!”

Hearing the noise, the guards assembled. Every one of them had their weapons in hand as they faced Basten down.

“Impertinent! The first thing I’ll do is tidy up you riffraff!”

Basten roared and sent the guards flying.

Aahh, they really were no match. We were already lacking all the strongest members like Remilia-sama to begin with. I need to get Tilea-san to fight somehow.


“Jessica-chan, n-now’s our chance to run!”

“Eh!? W-, Wait a mo――”

Tilea-san grabbed my hand and forcefully dragged me outside.

Why is Tilea-san running?

“Tilea-san, why won’t you fight like usual?”

“Jessica-chan, it’s impossible this time. The enemy is a werewolf. Kukanomi won’t work.”

“But why? Even a werewolf should be fine for you. Please just try throwing the kukanomi.”

“Jessica-chan, it won’t work. Kukanomi and crosses won’t work against a werewolf. Aaahh, if only I had a silver bullet…”

Silver boolet?

Tilea-san started fixating on something weird again. Even though a kukanomi would work just fine…

What should I do? How can I persuade her? Or would it be faster just to play along with her?

“Tilea-san, I don’t quite know what a boolet is, but would a lump of silver work?”

“Yeah, as long as it’s made of silver…”

I quietly picked up a stone from the roadside, and alchemised it into lead. I might not be able to create gold or silver, but I’m plenty skilled enough to create lead.

“Tilea-san, the truth is I have some silver with me.”

Saying that, I handed the lead stone to Tilea-san.

“EEH!? Really? What a coincidence! With this, we can beat him… Waii, is this really silver? It’s not really shining, and dull, almost like lead…”

Tilea-san made an obviously suspicious expression. Well of course. It really is a clump of lead.

“Tilea-san, that stone is actually an heirloom passed down in my Nichol family. Over the hundreds of years that we’ve had it, it’s gained a dignified tinge to it. But I can assure you that it’s silver.”

I wonder if my excuse was a bit lame. I don’t think even Tilea-san would be fooled by――

“I see! Now that you mention it, it really does look kind of elegant and silvery.”

SHE BELIEVED IT! I just blurted some nonsense. As Tilea-san took a good look at the lead, she praised “The skill of a craftsman sure shines, huh~” and nodded.

“Then Tilea-san, please don’t be shy. Please throw that at Basten in place of the kukanomi.”

“Yeah… Are you really okay with this? It’s an heirloom, isn’t it?”

“It’s fine, Tilea-san. In fact, I think that my ancestors would be happy as well, if they knew it was used to defeat a demon.”

Tilea-san, it’s just a clump of lead I created at random, so you don’t have to worry about that.

“I see. Then I won’t hold back――Oh no, that won’t work!”

Tilea-san lamented. Apparently there was yet another problem.

“Tilea-san, what’s the matter this time?”

“Jessica-chan, you know, when it comes to silver bullets they can’t be thrown by hand. They’re only as small as a bullet after all. You need a pistol to shoot it.”

Aahh, so annoying. Can’t be helped. I’ll just deceive her somehow.

But what’s a ‘pistel’ anyway?

Hmm~ From what she said, I’m assuming it’s a weapon like a bowgun. After all, she said that you can’t just throw it.

Huhu, if Tilea-san would just throw it, it would reach speeds impossible for a bowgun though. But even if I said that, I doubt Tilea-san would believe me.

In that case…

I know! As I recall, Tilea-san said that she could use elementary magic, didn’t she. I’ll have her throw it with magic. Besides, her ‘elementary magic’ is definitely going to end up being a match for our ‘final tier magic’. If it’s Tilea-san, I think she’ll be able to beat him with magic as well.

“If you can’t just throw it, then you can release the silver with magic, Tilea-san. You said that you could use magic, didn’t you?”

“Yeah. Only elementary magic though.”

“There’s no problem. Even elementary magic can produce incredible speeds. It can reach an itchimilicon per second.”

I’m honestly astounded by myself. I bet even a child wouldn’t be fooled, but… it should be fine since it’s her, right?

“I see! I don’t really get it, but that sounds really fast! Definitely as fast as a pistol. No, maybe even more. As expected of a fantasy world.”

Yep, I knew it! She started muttering words I didn’t understand again, but it seems that I convinced her at least.

“So this is where you were. I’ve crushed all the garbage inside. Now then, shall the strongest begin their fight!”

After finishing with the Headquarters, Basten appeared and roared fearlessly at her.

“Jessica-chan, stand back. Leave this to me…”

“Y-, Yes.”

I obediently left things to Tilea-san. Thank goodness. She’s motivated now.

“You defeated Bebe and the others. I’ll begin at full power! HAAAHH!”

Basten’s mana suddenly surged.

N-, No way. The already high mana rose even further. C-, Could this be the same amount as the huge mana I detected?

Then, Basten created a high density flame.

A-, Amazing. This isn’t anywhere near kilo, or mega anymore.

Giga… No, perhaps the legendary Terafire[Greatest Flame Spell]…

I was overwhelmed by Basten’s flame spell. On the other hand, Tilea-san seemed happy with the lead I alchemised. She was filled with confidence, or perhaps I could even say that she was acting careless.

This won’t do. Even if it’s Tilea-san, if she’s hit by that…

I was about to warn her but… my body suddenly swayed.

N-, No good. This again. A demon’s pressure. At this range, I can’t hold on.

Ahh, no good, my consciousness is fading. T-, Tilea-san, the rest is up to you.

  1. According to others, Tilea’s misunderstandings never end, and her character never changes. If it weren’t for Timu, I would have stopped reading this by now, because reading the same Tilea schtik for 100+ chapters gets kind of boring.


    1. It’s probably just this arc that dragged on for a bit too long. Once it finishes and the scenario changes, it should be fresh for a bit longer.

      *Waits for Timu to turn the entire school into a Timu-worshipping harem*….


      1. It’s definitely just the arc that’s gone on for too long.
        I since long understood that Repetition, is never the problem. The problem tends to be the current scenario which one considers uninteresting, but because the main-interaction stems from the Repetition of Tilea’s misunderstandings, one is lead to think what is truly boring is Tilea’s misunderstandings, the repetition, rather than the boring scenario which made one so bored one looked for something else, to begin with.

        Repetition is fine, repetition is awesome. Xianxia thrives on that sort of thing, doing the same thing over and over again (fighting people), just on different scales and with different people.
        Complaining about repetition, is like saying that FPS games are boring because “Shooting people is boring”. That’s not it, it’s how you shoot them, and in which circumstance which makes “The repetition of shooting people” interesting.

          1. No real reason. Some to emphasize the word, while in others I probably just forgot. Ya’know, adding and removing things tends to jumble a statement.

            And yeah. I truly think that Repetition is just the negative-term for “Consistency”, really. What’s bad or good is what you do with that consistency, rather than the consistency itself. <:


        1. I just want to add that I do not particularly think this arc developed into something boring, but I did facepalm quite intensely when Tilea claimed she simply MUST have a gun, and nothing else, otherwise it won’t work. Yet another moment in which it feels like the author just tries to make the MC too stupid to live, for no good reason.
          Why not ask for a silver arrow? Or a silver spear / sword? Why does it HAVE to be a silver-bullet, fired from a gun?
          That “moment of stupidity” was just forced for no good reason.
          The other misunderstandings are fine, good even, but that bullet thing just made me hurt my face.

      1. Dont mind dont mind sheeprabbit there will always be one or two ungrateful bitches who think their time is the most important thing / center of the universe… it’s gonna take a lot of growing up to realize we are all spec of dust in this world. ps always thankful for your translating and the effort you put in sheeprabbit ^_^


        1. There will also always be cock-suckers like you whom kiss ass to the translator.
          Yes, we get it, complaints can be annoying. No need to pretend you emotionally support anyone when you just want to feel like you belong to a side. That level of social-bonding is disgusting.

          Admin Edit: I don’t enjoy this blog enough to suck Estelion’s magical unicorn cock. Either that or I have too much dignity to suck cocks in general.


  2. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    Jessica is getting better at this. If only she doesn’t faint all the time when it gets really serious.


  3. ….with how jessica manipulate her, its a wonder if jessica didnt dominate the whole world. i think she will be the first that face palm to learn that tilea is the “demon king” even if tilea didnt even realise it.
