"....What are you talking about, sweetheart I don't know what you're talking about...

 Just when you think you've finally opened your mouth, you get a boring answer.

"I'm trying to get you to join my group. What don't you know about that?

That's not what I mean. I'm just a squad leader.

Just don't do it.


 Sasha opens her mouth and looks at me in dismay.

"Don't be an idiot. There's no reason for me to quit as squad leader.

If you join my squad, you'll get to hang out with Misha.

 Sasha glared at me as if her words were offensive to me.

'I never once thought of that doll as my sister.

 Discarding, Sasha went back to her own seat.

''I'm ... sorry ...''

 Misha muttered in the seat next to me.

'No need for you to apologize. He's the one who's been giving me a run for my money.'

 Shaking her head, Misha shook her head.

''....Sasha is a good girl...''

 Is she protecting him because she's his sister, or does she really think so?
 It's hard to judge from Misha's blank expression at this point in time.

'.........so it's my fault.......

 Hmm. Despite being called a junk doll and so on, Misha seems to have no hatred for his sister.

Then let me rephrase that. I'm sure you're not the only one who's been in this situation. It's not your fault or anything.

 Misha stared at me.


 I'm a little concerned, though.

What do you mean by 'dolls'?


 Misha kept her mouth shut and refused to answer.

''You have to tell me...?''

 You don't want to tell me.
 Well, whether Misha is a magic doll or not, she's still my friend.

I don't mind. I'm just asking.

 Then, Misha smiled as if reassured.


 So, as if to re-partition, I heard a clapping of hands.

''Yes, yes. Well, it looks like we've decided on a group, so I'll proceed with the explanation. Everyone, please return to your seats.

 Emilia's voice causes the students to return to their seats.

''From now on, we will be focusing on the magic of the for a while. As with any magic, the Demon King's Army (Guys) will be particularly battle-focused. We'll have an exam for each team in this class after a week, so please study hard with that in mind.

 Saying this, Emilia began to explain the and the team-based tests that use it.

 <The Demon King's Army (Guys) is an army spell that is used to raise the level of the entire fighting ability when leading a group to fight.
 It's a slightly unusual magic, but the sorcerer and his subordinates are given what are called seven classes.

 The Demon King (King). The Builder (Guardian). A mage. A Healer. A Summoner (Summoner). A mage (Cavalier). A sorcerer (shaman).

 Each of these seven has its own class characteristics that are granted by magic.
 For example, the Guardian grants the benefit of enhanced magic to the Builder, who builds castles and dungeons with creative magic, and the Anti-Magic, who builds defensive walls and magical barriers.
 On the other hand, weapon magic and offensive magic are forced to have a magical weakening effect.

 As long as this class characteristic is adhered to, the overall magic power of the group is improved by the magic of the
 The sorcerer will always be the King of Magic and will continually impart magical effects to his subordinates. He can also supply magic power to the people under him.
 When the king dies or his magic power is exhausted, of course, the magic of the GAIS cannot be sustained and the magic effect disappears.

''In that case, let's see if the first one to run for leader of the squad can use magic to wield the Demon King's Army (Guys).

 If they couldn't use their magic in this way, it would mean that the squad members who chose the leader didn't have the ability to see.

 Each of them exercised the magic of the in turn, but none of the five candidate squad leaders failed to do so in particular.
 To be honest, they were all substitutes of a level that would be useless in a real battle, but Sasha was the only one who exercised magic quite consistently. I'm sure it's just called the generation of chaos.

''Yes, fine. Now, let me give you a detailed explanation of the Demon King's Army (Guys). First of all--

 Emilia resumes the class.
 But this is the magic I developed, so it's all I know.

 It's a good idea to have a good time with them.
 But there's no point in pointing out every single thing that's wrong. I'll just ignore them.

 The boredom of the class made me feel sleepy, and I found myself slumbering in a daze.

 In a daze, the bell for the end of class rang.


 A stinging voice strokes my ears. It's Sasha's.

'And could you tell her that?'

 Is that what I'm talking about?

I'm going to wake you up...?

I don't mind.

 I thought I'd get my business out of the way right away, but for some reason, I've been silent.

'Hey. What's that of yours?

 After a beat, Misha says.

''My ... friend ...''

Yeah. Are you having fun?


Oh, yeah. Yeah. Good for you.

 Sasha's words were stinging, but they also seemed somehow happy.

 You said that you didn't know if they were close or not.
 It could be that Misha doesn't hate Sasha.
 Is there some circumstance to that crappy doll comment?

 Well, even sisters can't help but fight with each other.

So what can I do for you?


 Surprised, Sasha backed away.

'Will you not wake up all of a sudden? You'll be surprised.

'You don't even know if it's happening with the flow of magic, you pathetic bastard.

 When I say this, Sasha glares at me with a snap.

'So, what's up?'

 Sasha has a in her eyes.
 The way I see it, the magic eye would naturally appear with the change and intensity of my emotions.

 In other words, I'm not in control.
 But even though it's uncontrolled, it's a beautiful Magic Eye of Ruin.
 Its beauty is a sign of talent.

Let's play the game.

 It's an unexpected suggestion.
 After all, two thousand years ago, there were few people, demon or human, who had the courage to say such words to me openly.

''With me? What kind of a match?

 With a giggle I laugh out loud. Whatever the game was, I didn't feel like I was going to lose at all.

''Emilia-sensei told you that we're going to have the Demon King's Army (Guys) team competition exam in a week. I'm not going to be able to get out of it. How about the loser does whatever the opponent says?

 I see.

That should be interesting.

'If you win, I can quit being a squad leader and join your squad.

What if you win?

 Smiling, Sasha said.

'I'll take you,'

You want me to join Sasha's squad?

No. 'No. Disown that doll and become mine. You will obey me absolutely, and I will not tolerate any slightest argument.

 With a haughty look on her face, Sasha looked down at her sister.

Misha, you must remember that everything that is yours is mine. Everything that belongs to you belongs to me. I don't want to give you any of my friends or anything else. I don't want to give you any of my friends or anything else, because these funny toys are too good for you!

 Oh, man. I don't know if it's an insult to my sister, but it's pretty brave of you to treat me like a toy.

Yeah, I'll take that as a yes.

'What? You agree to it so easily. Is that okay?

I'm going to win anyway.

 Sasha glares at me as if she's miffed.

'I just let my guard down earlier. You'll be waiting for me in a week's time with your head washed up.

 She flipped the hem of her skirt around and Sasha left.

'Maybe we can make up once we're in the same group.

 When I told Misha, she flashed her eyes in surprise.

''So you asked Sasha out...?''

It may have been none of my business, but

 Then Misha shook her head with a shake and then smiled thinly.

''Thank you........''

 I thought Misha would want to get along with Sasha, but I guess I was right.
 It wasn't going to be a straightforward process on Sasha's part, but oh well, what could be done about it?

Don't worry about it. Let's have fun with the intergroup exams.

 Kokoro, Misha nodded.

''I'll do my best...''
