Delzogade Demon King Academy, the second teaching hall.
We opened the door and walked in, and we each took our seats.
''Oh, yeah, Ray. That's what I was talking about earlier.
Leaning back in his chair, Ray turns to face me as he lies down.
'After school, if you have time, come out with me.
Where are you going?
It's a secret place. You can have my magic sword.
Yeah. Well, I look forward to it.
Then I heard voices sneaking around from the classroom.
It was the Fun Union guys.
"Hey, hey, did you hear that?
What's going on?
''Anos-sama. After school, in a secret place, he's going to give Ray-kun my magic sword...!
Anos-sama's sword has been turned into a magic sword!
Demon swords, aaaaah!
'Oh, should I tell your mother...?
But you'll be devastated if you come out of nowhere...
Yeah, I guess so. But...
Hmm. I can't let my mother know about this incomprehensible misunderstanding. It would just lead to more misunderstandings.
When I called their names, they turned to me in surprise.
''Ha, yes. Anos-sama!''
What was that all about?
I said softly, as if to remind them both.
'Don't tell your mother,'
No, the price of life!
That should do it. It takes a lot of work to clear up a misunderstanding, but the point is that it's fine if you don't get the story across. If you don't know anything, there's no way to get it wrong.
"Oh, my God, I'm not going to tell anyone...
I knew it...
Sasha gives me a dumbfounded look from next to me.
It's okay. I just think you're in way over your head.
I snickered at that line with a huff.
'What? It's no big deal. That's about as big a deal as it gets.
'I don't know if you can afford it like that, and I don't know if you'll ever get it back.
Are you worried about me?
Well it's not really anything to worry about, but...
Sasha muttered in a whisper.
At that moment, the bell for the start of class rang.
But no one came.
Misha muttered in the seat next to me.
'Dr. Emilia is always on time,'
Then Sasha said as if she noticed something.
''Hey, come to think of it, it was Emilia-sensei who attacked your mother on the day of the magic sword tournament, wasn't it?''
What's the matter with you?
'Guess what's wrong?'
Sasha reacts as if she has drawn back slightly.
''Stop, you're laughing like a demon king like that...''
It was just a normal laugh, though.
It can't be helped since he's the Demon King in the first place.
Okay, everyone take a seat.
The one who came into the classroom was a woman with long ears.
Judging from the fact that she's wearing the same black vestments as Emilia, she's probably a teacher at the Demon King Academy.
I'm not sure if this is the first time you've been in this class, but I'm Menou Historia, the homeroom teacher for the first class of the third year. It's a temporary position, but I'll be holding this class at the same time for a while.
Then, the classroom buzzed.
''Teacher - What's wrong with Emilia-sensei?''
One of the female students raised her hand and asked that.
''Hmm, I haven't heard too many details about it either, but it seems that Emilia-sensei has decided to quit the Demon King Academy.''
A thunderous roar came from the classroom this time.
It's too soon to quit, isn't it?
Yeah, they usually say hello to each other, are they hurt or sick?
'I mean, if it weren't for Miss Emilia, I'd be getting bigger and bigger looks from that misfit...'
Okay, okay, quiet.
Menou claps his hands together.
'I don't really know what's going on, but it seems I can't even say hello anyway. It's kind of urgent, and I don't think they've filled in for a replacement teacher yet, but until then, I'll be the homeroom teacher.
But I thought Mr. Menou had a third year of classes.
'You can't teach a class with me, can you?'
Menou answers the students' questions.
'Hmm, that's not possible, of course, but it was really urgent, so I don't have anyone else to help me. So I guess I'll have to take turns with the third year students to study on my own every other day. Of course, I'll show up. But that's only for about a week.
'Do you have a new teacher coming in next week?'
''Umm. Actually, you see, it's not just because of what happened with Emilia-sensei, but it's been decided that we're going to have an academy exchange in Delzogade.
The whole classroom is filled with questions.
Apparently, it's the first time they've all heard of it.
''Sensei, what is academy exchange?''
To put it simply, the exchange of colleges is to go to a different college and interact with the students and teachers of that college, teaching each other things that we don't know, and working hard together.
The students seemed to have questions again at that explanation.
''A different academy...?''
''The Demon King's Academy is the top in Dillhade, and honestly, there's nothing we can't learn here...? Regardless of who they are, what's the benefit of having an academy exchange with us?
Picking up on the student's question, Menou answered.
''Right. So, we haven't had any interaction with other academies in Delzogade before, but this time we actually had the opportunity to interact with other academies besides Dirheid.
Where else but Dillhade?
It's Azation. I've been talking with the heroic academy in the capital city of Gaillardite about the possibility of doing something like that for quite some time now. It's a good idea to have an exchange program with the hero academy because they are ready to accept you.
Then, the students leaked out in surprise.
''You mean, Azation, you mean the human academy?''
What's the word "brave" again? Have you ever heard of it?
Ummm, I have no idea.
If I recall, isn't there a hero in the camp that fought against the tyrannical demon king? I have a feeling that in the past, demons and humans were at odds with each other, and the demon king led the demons, and the heroes led the humans.
'Yeah, I know. But I thought humans weren't that strong? Are the brave ones strong?
Hmm. It seems that there are records of brave men, but they're not very well known in Dillhade.
Due to the wall I built, there is no longer any contact with humans. There are no more conflicts, and battles with brave men are completely in the past.
The war of two thousand years ago was, at best, fought against humans, and there's no way to blame them without knowing the details.
Nevertheless, there are things that have happened before.
The fact that the brave man is treated as a small part of the demon race, and this hastily surfaced exchange of the academy with this brave academy may be one of Avos Dilhevia's schemes.
I'll have to check with Melheis later.
''You guys haven't learned enough. It's true that we only had a quick look at it, but I'm sure we touched on the brave men in history class.''
Menou went to the blackboard and wrote '
''Let me briefly review them. It's said that the Brave developed military magic during the Great War. That's the
Menou turns his attention to the students.
'Yes. So, does anyone else remember?
No one's hand was raised.
Curious, she looked at Misha and said.
'I haven't learned it yet.'
...Right. Isn't this what third-year students learn?
Hmm. Apparently, you've been careless.
I'm in trouble, I think, and I raise my hand.
"The Brave. A wiseman. A mage. A healer. A Summoner. A holy knight (Cavalier). The seven classes of sorcerers are assigned to the magic of the Asuras.
When I answered that, Menou said happily.
Yes, that's correct. Then, what is the difference between the Brave Army (Asra) and the Demon King's Army (Guys), can you also answer the question?
The most important difference is that the king shares his magic with his subordinates, while the subordinates of Asura share their magic with the brave. This is the magic that was developed to attack the Demon King's Army (Guys), which mainly built and defended the castle, while the Brave Squad (Asra) was developed to attack the castle.
Gather the power to one brave man and overthrow the demon king. They were inferior to the total strength, and the only way to defeat the demon tribe was to crush their heads. The demon tribe, which is led by force, if they lose their heads, they will quickly turn into a crowds of people.
However, that's not enough to show the true value of the Brave Men's Unit (Asura). ＜The use of the Ask to transform the hearts of your friends into magical power will give you enough power to rank with the powerful demons.
That's right. You are studying hard. ＜It's a good thing that you've been studying hard, because it's a type of magic that can't be taught at the Demon King's Academy. In that sense, I think this exchange of schools will be meaningful to Delzogade.
They are trying to teach each other military magic, which they developed to defeat each other, now, after two thousand years, they are trying to teach each other.
It's a very good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for, but it's not a good idea to learn how to use it. Eventually, I think that magic applied to the demon race will be developed so that it can be used by the demon race, and what we should learn from this exchange of academies.......
Cutting off the words in mid-sentence, Menou looked like he had a questioning look on his face.
''........Huh? You didn't tell everyone about the Sanctuary (Ask) yet, did you?
''Sensei, on the contrary, the magic of the
Pointed out, Menou said, "Oh...! He raised his voice as if he'd noticed.
'I see. I'm sorry, I thought you were in my third year class...!
After saying that, Menou again gave me a questioning look.
Then she looked at me seriously.
''.........You, how did you know about the magic of the
You know, I've seen it all before. And you, Menou. Your explanation is not correct.
I drew a magic circle on the spot and exercised a certain magic.
Menou's face was filled with astonishment.
''........Lies, right.......This is the magic of the
It must have been shown to me at the Academy of Bravery.
Menou saw through the magic I exercised at a glance.
It's not that you don't have to be a hero to use this magic. Well, the Demon King's Army (Guys) is more efficient for the demon race, though.
Perhaps not being able to keep up with what happened in front of him, Menou was unable to speak, and could only watch the magic of the
