Monster Musume Harem wo Tsukurou! Chapter 47
We were placed at the back of the magician corps, where the devil beasts who slipped through will attack the center, and our job is to obstruct them. We can’t let them come close to the magicians. Our battle formation may be too offensive. When the battle began, It started at an early time.
Everywhere devil beasts fight against soldiers. A gap-like space opens, rock and sticks fly out from the ground, a boulder lump lays oneself on the ground… So that you can see that it was an intense battle.
In the middle of that space, there are the silhouettes of two people. One of them was floating in mid-air while the other shadow grips the neck of that person with one hand. The person who was floating has his left arm bent outward, the flesh on his sides was scraped off and blood drips down from his clothes. You can see that he is covered all over with wounds, but his fighting spirit doesn’t seem to have declined yet.
“…You’re still opposing me. I’m not a guy who knows that it’s hopeless” Demon
The appearance of the fellow who is lifting the person was strange but fits the appearance of a living being. He has dark red skin, like dried blood that hung on to something. From the wide side of his head, one pair of twisted horns like a demon sprouted. His upper-body is covered with jet-black bristles, which wouldn’t be even cut with an ordinary sword. The lower half of his body are goat legs and his considerable power is kept a secret, though it is thin on the surface this is definitely a demon and its intelligence seems to be high because he can speak human language, which not many demons can.
“GohoGoho! …Because there is no chance, without fighting, it wouldn’t be a reason to kill you” demon
“Is this person as weak as a scarecrow? I don’t understand” Demon
“You wouldn’t understand your entire life, idiot!” Tsuchio
“What kind of person are you, to be killed by such a fool?” Demon
“It hasn’t been decided that I’m dead” Tsuchio
Tsuchio who is lifted up as his neck can still talk. His internal organs are probably damaged because whenever he talks with the demon he is vomiting blood. And his figure doesn’t appear that he is going to be killed soon.
“…I like your eyes. There is still a secret to your plan, so show it quickly. You’re weaker than the guys whom I fought so far and those fights were entirely worth it. Hey, I can wait so do it already” Demon
When the demon includes the power to Tsuchio´s arm, the cervical vertebrae scream creakily and while Tsuchio´s consciousness is about to fade away, and goes back to the time when the war started.
In the place where the magician corps, several magic spells are cast at the same time and echo. Apparently, the unit wants to cast large-scale magic immediately. Well even if they want to, their opinion might not be wrong.
In the front, the battle seems to have started already and the devil beasts haven’t broken through to our place yet. Because it’s an oblong wedge, we must be careful about any attacks that will come from the side. But preceding, when we assume that they would attack….
“The devil beasts come!!!” Magician
When I look up at the sky, plural birds-like and insect-like monsters fly to our place. After all, they attack from the top. While the ground devil beasts seem to have gotten close to the center, it will be only a matter of time until they come here. The magicians already begin to cast magic, however, they can’t strike them down. Those who have a bow equipped shot their arrows with the result that it isn’t so fragrant. For now, I’ll have Rin knock them down. She doesn’t have any problem because they looked like small fishes in her eyes.
“Rin, I ordered you to go to the sky. Reduced their numbers after you’re done, please go around to support Ruu” Tsuchio
Rin runs up to the sky and scatters a thunder arrow on the vicinity. The devil beasts which were going to attack at any moment received the thunder arrow and crashed to the ground. The decisive blow is given to the students. However, I didn’t move. An enemy was coming soon, this is because Ruu and Lime sensed it. …Yosh, the last confirmation.
“A larger number of monsters are approaching. If it is necessary to reduce the number even a little, everyone can act separately. If you meet a demon or a powerful enemy, I will know about it through our connection and I’ll come to your aid” Tsuchio
Although everybody objected, they would understand that such a thing couldn’t be opposed, seeing the quantity of our enemy. They accepted it immediately.
“Devil beasts come from the front! Everyone, hold your weapon! By all means, act in pairs or in groups!”
At last the demon beasts approach us and our battle starts. Sasha-sensei pulls out her sword, and she summons her Garm pack who were in attacking mode.
When I start the battle, talismans came out of my sleeve and fit between my fingers without my intention. After acquiring the talisman art skill, the talismans started to move on their own selfishly to my hand. It isn’t necessary anymore to move my hand into my bosom purposely and because some of my openings decreased, it’s a convenient and subtle function. Thank you.
And at this moment the adventurers and teachers who were in the front row started the battle with the monsters. The students follow behind with a bit of delay.
Still, our purpose is to guard because our duty is to defend the magician unit. Therefore only a part of us goes out to the front and fight, while those who remained behind the stick in front of the magicians and stop the enemy from passing.
I, in charge of the guarding role, while Ruu, Rin, and Lime belong to those who go out to the front and fight. Now while everything ahead is suppressed, they will come and attack here all at once.
While thinking, several goblin-like monsters passed through the previous defense line and approach us. While I am wondering whether my fifth-grade seniors will move out, I throw out my talismans. They stick to the head of those goblins without aiming badly and immediately fell down on their places.
Huu, because they looked like small fishes, was the talismans with strengthened penetration power okay? Somehow, more than half of the devil beasts consisted of small fry. Even if their numbers are large and in the place where such 1000 fellows are gathered around Ruu, no wound was inflicted.
“When the enemy comes, those who needs to leave, move out! Those who should stay, defend the unit!” Sasha-sensei
Afterward, the devil beasts come over one after another. Small fishes like the goblins at the beginning were defeated, while gradually stronger monsters appear to attack us.
When I defeated the goblins with the talismans, big, fat and pig-like monsters approached. Orcs are stupid and have propagative power, but they’re are strongly at the same power level as goblins. When they come as a group, they can be stupid for a moment and one of the most annoying fellows.
Such fellows came over in a group of ten. There is a fellow who seems to be stronger than the others, he probably will be a high-rank orc or something which evolved. Let’s reduce their number with range attacks.
Several newly made talismans which I took out are thrown sidewise in front of the orc group. They just pierce the ground, while the ground upheaves suddenly like a pillar and encloses the orcs.
My newest talismans attack by raising the ground. I imagined it to be pillars, while this time they become spears. Purposely attacking them by using nothing other than talismans, reduce the consumption of my magical power to a little. The concrete image is alchemy and instead of putting hands together, I use talismans.
Being stabbed in the stomach and in the face by the rock pillars, the orcs writhe in agony because the spears have gone out of the side, they bear damage unless they retreated or exchanged it. The orcs whose number decreased were defeated by the students. As for that high-rank orc, I think that I could knock it down with no problem in particular.
Next big mantises came. There is one whose leg was wounded and while suffering such an injury he seems all right, therefore we shouldn’t underestimate the vitality of insects. I attack it as if I didn’t have any problem at all.
While dodging the sickles which swung around, I throw out talismans when I got the chance. I cut its leg, but it still has the vitality to continue fighting. This must be a joke, I can’t neutralize it. It ís a waste of talismans, however, let’s knock it down with one hit though it’s a little troublesome.
An image is formed, while I select a talisman. Tentatively, I divide between offense and defense. The first talismans I made are an exception because they create a wall that can also be used for an attack. It is originally for defense.
The pattern of the offensive talismans are pentagrams, if I say onmyoji, it’s that design because it shows the conflict between the five attributes tree, fire, soil, gold, and water, it is easy to acquire the image of the attributes. Well, even a talisman of the semantic domain can be done. The feeling of acceptance is difference than I intend to do.
One talisman is thrown out and it blazes up in the air, before taking on the figure of a bee and flies to that mantis. Slipping through its sickles which were dumped to intercept it, it collides with the head of the mantis. That instant, a big explosion was caused and the head was blown off.
For now, the name of this talisman is fire-bee. Literally, it’s is a bee made of fire who when in contact shines then explodes, making it a suicide attack. The image is slightly difficult, however, there is no problem if it doesn’t work. I don’t have experience the imagination of a modern day Otaku, nevertheless, I only have that as a weapon!
For the time being, I let the talisman explode when it touch the target and I had no confidence that it would hit the head well. Even if the sickles are blown off or if its chest and abdomen are shattered, the mantis wouldn’t die it’s because the fire bee aims by itself selfishly. It’s a masterpiece.
I think that Ruu is also fighting firmly because I see that the monsters in her surrounding are blown away. After Rin defeated the devil beasts in the sky, she seems to be firing magic blindly since coming down to the ground. Although all of it have a low power and low consumption rate, it’s enough to stop our enemies. I don’t know where Lime is, however she will fight somewhere too. By using the connection of our magical power, I understand that nobody is hurt. In a condition like this case, can we manage to come through…?
Suddenly, a dense energy is gathered at the back. When I look back unconsciously, a big magic formation is generated under the feet of the magician unit and a huge fireball formed in the air. Is that a group magic spell…? The amount of magic used is extremely different indeed. What kind of attack will it make….?
The fireball that came out to the air fell slowly. Do they intend to open a gap for the heroes, I want them to think about this a little….
The vast fireball which fell to the ground released an enormous heat capacity that is hidden inward and an explosion that is only proportional to the long casting and magical power arises.
The earth trembles by the impact and the heat can be felt from here which should be far away. To the impact of an earthquake, all members who were at that place kneeled down on the ground… If there is such magic, can we win in margin?
Ah, most of the magicians are exhausted, it must be a quite high ranked magic spell. Although it is a considerable big number of people, everyone is running out of magical power… However, a road was opened. Now we only need to defeat the boss.
“The gap for the heroes is open! The flow is suitable here! Magician corps cut your present magic! And protect us!”
The flow is certainly here, but is it just my imagination to think that our enemies were too weak? Are the strong ones collected in the back? …Uh, It will be surely so and it will prove that there’s something very important in the interior. No wonder that they were missing out. the heroes can defeat the boss quickly and our damage will be suppressed. Will it go well…?
Just after that, something falls from the sky and drops between the magician corps. The ground greatly cracks and the magicians who were running out of magic sank down and were blown off by the impact.
“Hey hey, I intended to welcome you because you guys wanted to release an extra-large magic with much effort… So what, are you already worn-out?”
The demon who looks like a devil with his twisted horns and red body kicks and complains about magician corpses while flying. That is a demon… bristled upper-body, strong arms and goat legs. If I judge it from its devil-like appearance, it’s an all-around type who is good with magic and close combat. As for Ruu… It’s useless because she is surrounded by enemies. Those devil beasts are trying to obstruct her…!
“Isn’t there a guy who has the bone….? You over there”
The demon points at a male student who was near me.
“Fight with me for a moment. You won’t have to die if I am killed”
“A, A, Aaa…”
The demon walks towards that fellow. Whenever it moves forward with one step, he is overwhelmed by its force. It’s magic isn’t such a cheap problem. That male student is scared and seems to grow weak because of the demon approaching him. However, I have to move or he will certainly die. I’ll die if I don’t fight. Then… Let’s fight.
“Hey, I’ll do it”
“Hmm, is it so? You may go. Hmm, come here then”
I follow the demon. On this occasion, it seems that I guarded the other students and magicians.
“You may have the first move, come”
Obviously, there is a big difference between each other’s ability, however, to be a match for the demon I need Ruu… however even if I howl to the moon, it’s worthless. My purpose is to play for time, so let’s do what I can do until Ruu arrives. Delay it with all my might… I can’t die here!
