Volume 2, Chapter 12: Children of the Night, Part 2


{[(TL Note: reader Discretion Advised! We Repeat! Viewer Discretion Advised! Some seriousness happens this chapter, so ask your parents first if you’re below a certain age. If you think we’re joking, we’re not, seriously.)]}


All around her was [Darkness]. She couldn’t see anything: Fontaine clasped her small hands together after managing to escape from that terrible place.

“ … C-Chris…-chan?”

Though she thought that Christina was pulling her hands and so called out, nobody responded.

There was a dark forest from which even the sounds of insects chirping couldn’t be heard.

A little ways away from her, she could see the house where the monsters lived, but right now there was no one but her. Fontaine looked around uneasily.

“ …… ”

Fontaine couldn’t help but want to help herself, she didn’t understand at all why that person had left her all alone, and felt despair.

Why would anyone leave a child like her alone in a place like this? The monsters called Vampires were scary. But, this dark forest was scary too.

She hated being scared, and wanted to run away. Yurushia had said to run away as well. Saying she’d forgive us if we escaped.


“ …Why did you ‘let’ us run away?”

Fontaine did not understand.


Fontaine was born a noble, but did not feel any aristocratic [Pride]. She would not even mind living as a commoner.

As far as she was concerned, it made no difference.

To Fontaine, all of the things in the world belonged to her.

She didn’t understand the [Boundaries] between herself and others. She didn’t mind if her own things were taken away, but also didn’t mind taking away from other people.

The important things of others, she didn’t understand how important they were to that person. She would even take the lives of small animals in her play.


But even Fontaine understood that if she didn’t eat, she would starve to death. Dying was scary.

As a child, of course it was natural for her to be protected, but the parents who should have protected her were already dead. After that, the protection from the Duke person was weakened, and then the people after that who should have protected her, the twins and Christina, were so frightened and she never ever considered that she would ever have to protect herself.


So, moving along the sequence of protectors:

“Mistress protects me!”

Not only did she face that horrible monster without fear, the Princess even had a smile on her face. Since she was her [Master], it was natural to be protected by her.

Having reached that conclusion, rather than flee to the forest, Fontaine walked towards the place where hopefully Yurushia and the vampire still were.


The fear faded away before she knew it. Thinking about it, because Fontaine’s concept of the boundaries between individuals was very thin, she believed so.

{Because my life is important to everyone, I don’t need to fear for it.}

Since Fontaine saw her life as most precious, she didn’t doubt for a moment that it was important to everyone else.

She boldly returned to the gate of the mansion. No vampires found her on the way back.

As she took a cake from the wagon on the way and walked to the garden while munching, she noticed someone behind them.

“ …?”

A small breath was approaching. Not a person, a [Thing], Fontaine held her breath as it appeared from the cold darkness.


A black dog emanating frost; a vampire familiar, Death Hound.



Her face distorting in fear, Fontaine instantly broke into a run.

Two… no, three… four more dogs appeared from the darkness and had begun to harass their weak prey like a pack of wolves.


She couldn’t understand why she was being attacked. She couldn’t understand why nobody was helping her. Weighed down with despair and fear, Fontaine moved towards the girl that was her master, crying in the darkness.

“S-save meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!”


There was no response, only the sound of tearing and a muffled scream as the sound of ripping spread through the night.



“It’s not real… It’s not real… It’s not real…”

Ninette was squatting in the shadow of the wall close to the main gate of the mansion, her teeth chattering while she held her sword.

Tightly clutching her sword hilt as her knuckles turned white, Ninette continued to mumble curses quietly.

“It can’t be…”

Not only did that monster exist, but that monster took the shape of a noble and she had been forced to participate in that sort of tea party and the Princess had to provoked the monster and the Princess looked like she was having fun and because of that her own life was in danger and all of it was unbelievable.


“I hate this.”

{I don’t wanna die. I wanna go back to my [Easy] life.}

Ninette hated troublesome things. Her twin brother was willing to be subservient to others for his own comfort, but Ninette felt doing so was too much work for her.


To have the fine eye of consideration to be a maid was too troublesome.

To train in the sword to become a knight was too troublesome.

To go along with her elder brother’s plans was too troublesome.

To humble herself in front of other people was too troublesome.

To work was too troublesome.

She just wanted to live an effortless life.


If one was strong with a sword, they were recognized by only that, those escort knights would clean up any enemies who attack the duke’s daughter and settled everything. If she became captain of the knights when she grew up, she could just leave all the guarding to her subordinates and live easily.

In that sense, Ninette was [Better] relative to the others.

She had already made plans for her own future, somewhat.

That was why, facing the thought of dying in a place like this, Ninette couldn’t take it.

“Princess’… fault.”

Using the sword as bait, Ninette was fished into a dangerous place.

She wanted to swiftly run away.

Even though that Princess had said to do so, Ninette could not run. She had depended on her parents then her brother until now, after abandoning all her thoughts for the sake of living an [Easy] life, she did not know how to put in the effort to [Escape] alone.



Quiet footsteps could be heard from the back of the dark forest.

They were small footsteps which she had not heard until then, Ninette was able to hear the flood of footsteps like ripples, and monsters with the figures of people filled the area and were quickly approaching.


Her mouth was so dry that it was hard to breathe.

Thousands or more [Monsters] wearing the clothes of commoners… Some of them smiled with bestial smiles as they noticed where Ninette was hiding.

Although in her hands was a sword imbued with tremendous magic, she was just a child, and Ninette, who had only ever wielded the sword in play, couldn’t imagine herself defeating even one monster.


Ninette understood.

She would die. The monsters would push her down and tear her apart and eat her intestines while she was still alive.

“… Damn it all…”

Crying her final tears, she cursed her parents, cursed her brother, cursed her comrades, cursed herself for involving herself with Yurushia, and with trembling hands, brought the point of the sword to her throat.

At that time… Ninette took the only [Easy] option.



A huge chapel. This place which stood in the grounds of Count Oberu’s estate, singularly out of place for a place where monsters lived, was decorated brightly and looked incorruptible.

“ …… ”

[Someone] had brought Christina from a corner of the garden, where she had been hiding from the butlers in the shadow of the trees.

She hadn’t been treated roughly yet. Expressionless maids and butlers surrounded the altar of the chapel indifferently, staring silently at her, and Christina felt like she was about to go mad from fear.


The opening of the chapel door broke the silence with its faint sound.


As she saw the appearance of the person, Christina’s eyes grew wide with despair.

The unusually beautiful Countess, followed by several servants, was carrying Noah, whose vacant eyes were filled with fear, like a doll.


What had happened to Noah…? Perhaps he was caught in his hiding place just like her.

The expensive butler’s clothing prepared by the ducal household had been torn in many places. From where she was, she could see a plethora of [Tooth] marks on the boy’s white skin.

Looking at his face, his blood was probably sucked out for [Fun] rather than for mere hunger.


Looking at his face caused Christina to twitch in fear as the Countess pierced Noah’s cheek shallowly with her fang, licking the fresh blood overflowing from his cheek with her bright red tongue.

Christina looked with pity as Noah trembled every time the Countess licked her blood.

However, when the vacant eyes of Noah met Christina’s, a small amount of life came into his eyes, and the boy put on a disgusting smile.


“ … Her blood, if you please, is definitely more delicious than mine.”


The words that sold out not only his companion, but his human dignity, shocked Christina, and the Countess put on a joyous smile.

“Hohoho, even though I was surprised by that Saint-dono, you fellows really adorable.”

The interest of the Countess moved away from Noah momentarily to the girl he had betrayed, Christina.

“T-that’s right, please make me your comrade, Ma’am! I want to take the blood of that girl who swindled others with the name of a Saint, Gugyaaaaaa!?”

Breaking off Noah’s words mid-sentence, the Countess chomped down on his shoulder, slowly chewing the bone, instead of sucking his blood.

“I hate stupid children, you know?

Noah was paralyzed with the pain and fear, while the Countess had a smile like a beast on her face.


“That person…”

The Countess’ eyes turned towards Christina’s mutter.

Christina was trembling. Her tears and trembling was not fear, but anger at Yurushia.


“Because of that person, this happened. Just a mere concubine’s child. Athena-sama and Ophelia-sama were sent far away: all because of that bastard child!”


Christina’s mother was good acquaintances with the Duke’s late first wife. Her mother worshipped Albertine, her daughter Christina was thought of as a [Tribute] to Albertine.

Even though there wasn’t a single good rumor about Athena-sama’s generosity, Christina craved the beauty and dignity of a high noble and waited excitedly for a day to serve them.


It all fell apart with the death of Albertine. She ended up serving Yurushia, who had seized all of the benefits Athena-sama was supposed to receive.

In the beginning, Christina did not hate Yurushia, who she had not met.

But, after seeing that Yurushia was so unconditionally beloved by the Duke, her mother, and everyone else in the household, when she compared Yurushia to herself, whose bright hopes, warm home, and noble position had all been lost, only hatred remained.


“That person… Kill them.”


Having lost her sanity to fear, she made her bitter confession of tears, and the Countess tossed Noah aside. A delighted smile coming to her face, she softly spoke to Christina.


“A~ah… at last, you’ve become delicious…”


App’s Notes: Well, that was brutal…


… 20 more chapters until…


Piroton’s Notes: You WA SHOCK! *electric guitar riffs*

I have to say, I entirely enjoyed this chapter too much. Hyeh hyeh hyeh. *tiny evil person*

Also, this thing was a royal pain to translate. Child-speak is hard.

    Revenge is sweet…. and messy…

  2. Random Internet User (tm) says:

    Thank you kindly for all the hard work!

  3. asriu says:

    huh? is that all? I hope there more~ ah it story about love so no wonder~

  4. M says:

    Oh wow they’re irritating af but didn’t realised how dark their ends would be!

    • Void says:

      And, considering that they are all 10 to 8 years old…Their mindsets are almost shockingly mature, or simply brutally decisive.
      Look at Ninette. She’s a tiny little child, and she chose to kill herself by the edge of her own sword. You’d imagine children would lose their minds to primal fear, before they’ll calculate their odds and take any given path…
      You can chalk up their personalities and decision making due to them being nobles, or living in a feudal era in which a simple childhood cannot be taken for granted (considering Christina, for an instance. The story behind her entire birth is warped).

    • Void says:

      *But still, it’s hard to imagine even a 12 years old going: “welp, I prefer to stab myself with this sword rather than hope to run away!”
      Blood hell, right?

  5. AO says:

    Thank you for the hard work App and Pinton. I greatly appreciate it. I have to admit…this is definitely getting good…fufufufufufu. MORE DARK FLUFFINESS!!!

  6. djdreye says:

    I’d rather not have pictured a 5 year old getting torn alive. Probably don’t need to keep that in my mind.

  7. Hi Hi says:

    Thank You so much!

  8. lildesty says:

    Thank you for the chapter! I would truly cry if the children managed to escape though. Children are innocent is why people usually protect them but clearly these children werent… but why do they all blame yurushia x.x

    • djdreye says:

      Well, these are very young kids.It takes a long time to learn morality, and, especially in Fontaine’s case, it is quite unfair to write them off. If anything, this show’s Yuru’s lack of empathy towards humans.

      • libraryrocker says:

        Fontaine would have grown up to be a serial killer. And not the Yuru-chan kind of serial killer, but the dissect people to hear them scream and not understand that they have any emotions or right to exist kind of serial killer.

        • Silver says:

          Think back when you were young. Would you easily sell out your friends and casually take others’ stuff for yourself. Considering how all of them behaved (killing animals & stealing; suicide; selling out a comrad to monsters; calling someone a bastard child) they knew what they were doing but still did it. Do you really believe that they are “normal”?

  9. Wayne says:

    So all of them died?

  10. kirindas says:

    Wow~ Nice slaughter there.
    Thanks for the chapter!

  11. RoflCat says:

    As someone who’ve read ahead :v I was half-hoping you guys would do one long releases to either the next chapter or the few after that….cuz y’know, cliff is suffering….

    p.s. I’m more on the ’34 chapters to go’ side.

  12. Yukino says:

    Perhaps Yuru will save them from the clutches of despair so she could push them back down into an even deeper abyss and enjoy their soul.

  13. Welp, that happened. Thanks for translating!

  14. Joshan says:

    thanks for the chapter ~ well it was an easy ending for those poisonous children i was hoping for yuru to go full devil on their last moment of despair or somehting .

  15. Reader says:

    Everyone died such sad deaths, but I think fontaine’s death was just tragic. She’s just an ignorant kid that didn’t know any better.

    • libraryrocker says:

      wait… did you miss the part where she’s a complete sociopath?

      • Anonymous says:

        Many kids are sociopath, thats why bullying exist

        • App says:

          As someone who spent days in Fontaine’s head-space, I’m calling actual psychological disorder. Doesn’t mean I don’t feel sorry for the future serial killer, though. (I’m the type who would never use a time machine to kill Hitler)

          • Waylan says:

            I’m the type that would use a time machine to kill Hitler but only after he came into power.
            Killing potentially evil Hitler is bad. Killing actually evil Hitler not so much.

          • Dos says:

            My personal belief about myself is that I would try to meet potential Hitler and try to dissuade him, and some of his nastier followers from their path.

      • Reader says:

        Oh. I guess I did overlook that. It’s just that I tend to share similar tendencies so I’m quick to assume that its normal, especilly for a child.

        • libraryrocker says:

          Yeah, Fontaine had me fooled for a while, but then I got her POV, and YEP SOCIOPATH. Or psychopath. Not enough for me to diagnose accurately between the two. XD

          And don’t worry, it’s a *range* so you can have some sociopathic tendencies and still be a good person. Or even a LOT of sociopathic tendencies and still be a good person, but it’s really difficult.

  16. Toaster says:

    The author really good at both cute and gore story eh?

    I kinda like it

  17. Reader says:

    Also, thanks for the chapter. I really appreciate the extra care put in the translations.

  18. KingOfMangonia says:

    honestly felt that their deaths were undeserved, they weren’t able to suffer enough yet. Yurushia should of made them die a slower, more painful death after what they had done.

  19. Manga Hunter says:

    So that’s why they were brats. I wonder if Noah is dead already? Thanks for the chapter.

  20. A random potato says:

    With the warning I was expecting worse. I look forward to the next few chapters as Yuru turns the hunt on the vampires.

    As always thanks for all the hard work. I adore this series.

  21. midnight2630 says:

    i seriously wonder what the Duke had in his head to make these brats as Yusushia companions…

    • libraryrocker says:

      me too, seriously wtf? Choosing the most unsuitable kids there could possibly be… Commoner children would have been soooooooooooo much better!

  22. LygarX says:

    not sure what is going on here

  23. kawaiiloverq says:

    Actually, Fontaine was actually asking why she needed to ask forgiveness for. Not why she had to run. … I think. It matches with her character.

  24. Wooly Marmot says:

    Thanks for the 4x POV-changing chapter. Hoping to see Yuru herself soon. She’s having a good, in-fluffy time, I presume.

  25. SUNOFA says:

    Wow, the first one could’ve probably survived if only she didn’t come back…

  26. Aber says:

    This needs more than 1 chapter per week

    • App says:

      Mate, if you feel like joining onto the team, just let us know, our process each chapter is in the announcement, so if after reading through that, you feel like you can contribute to speed, let us know!

  27. libraryrocker says:

    Wow, I thought Fontaine was just a normal child… but she was a full on psychopath. Fooled me~~~ Looking forward to Yuru-chan’s part of the story~~~

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!!

  28. Rikka says:

    We need another chapter This week D:

  29. Suzy says:

    We all enjoyed their selfish sufferings *hohohoho*

  30. Alyuna says:

    wow, this series is disturbingly fluffy

  31. Candied Skull says:

    At first I had kinda hoped that they would survive, but seeing through their POV killed any of that. I actually sort of cheered…
    This story combines cuteness and darkness so well, all the while not entirely luring you into thinking Yuru is “normal.” I like that because so many stories make the characters seem much better than they are and it feels too forced. This story makes it feel good to kinda have insider knowledge and see how Yuru will one up everyone.

  32. DocteurNS says:

    The Countess and Yuru seem to share taste in food. Hatred truly is delicious~

  33. Lurker-san says:

    No, I don’t want the damn kids to die yet.

    They cannot die without seeing the greatness of their Master Yuru and feel even greater despair from it!!! They can freely die after that~

  34. jfsaucisse says:

    Ah~ Delish…

    Thanks for the chap’

  35. Eds_Sde says:

    Thanks for the chapter

  36. Tempus Edax Rerum says:

    Is this a joke? In which world was this brutal? You sure know how to kill expectations..

  37. Zypex says:

    waaa~ no Yurushia. 🙁

  38. Aforia says:

    Thanks for the chapter! I’m curious as to why madame was so laid-back. Don’t they have no time to mind these children? They’re all gonna die soon, you know?

  39. Cheeseburger says:

    Well, Chris will never know that Yuru’s sisters are not her sister but are the actual bastards.

  40. Yuemitsuki says:


    Hope for your ‘better’ future not-so-innocent little brats..hope you can become a better ‘brat’ for our lovely Yuru-sama.
    I really can’t wait for that 20th next chapter… (╥﹏╥)

  41. CardinalSan says:

    yes, all of these fluff events are nice

    but it’s obvious that fluff-sama shall be the one getting the most delicious fluff

  42. NoA says:

    So what are the odds that the girl, Fontaine, will still be around?
    Sure, she is getting rip apart, but that doesn’t mean that she can’t still be alive by pure determination of not wanting to die.

    If she can just hold on until the MC purge the vampires and their minions, maybe her still surviving despite missing a few limbs and vital organs will earn the MC’s forgiveness.

    But then again, that might be too much to expect from a 5-year-old.

  43. PotatoZero says:

    I though Yuru from last chapter covered them with ink-black darkness? What was that for, theatrics?

  44. Tinchen says:

    ty for the chap
    ahhh~~~ delicious bloodbath

  45. Zann says:

    I think that Yuru will use the bodies as a way to get her demon followers over.

    If you recall two of them were twins, which looked like steam buns with sheep horns, another was a white monkey with a face like a Pierrot and lastly was a snake that shared Yuru’s colors of gold with red eyes with soft skin instead of scales.

    Now those one chapter characters are coming back into the picture. At least that’s how I see it.

  46. illparazzo says:

    Thanks for the chapter!

  47. DOHere says:

    Oh, interesting…I kind of thought the children would be bewitched by Yurushia…
    Sweet revenge, nonetheless~

  48. moto says:

    Dang these kids gonna need a therapist later.

    Also, is mc really a devil/demon?

    Since, she technically born in the spirit world, she could have been a spirit since her first physical manifestation was gonna be a women which is the water and wind spirits primary form.

    Her reputation could also explain why the spirits are afraid of her and she did absorbed some energy from the dark beast and other demons which could’ve corrupted her.

    Theres also the instincts of a cat that toy with their prey.

    Pretty sure shes a light spirit. Unless light spirit is just a wimp for real.

    • purpleeee says:

      she’s definitely a demon. In the spirit world she took the form of golden beast which is a really high ranking demon and eventually escaped into the human world becoming a newly born infant. so she’s a demon wearing human skin.

  49. Heath says:

    That was awesome! I can’t wait for them to all be killed

  50. Kurenaro says:

    Thanks for the chapter desu~

  51. gantono says:

    thanks for chap

  52. linnil says:

    Super confuse the name of Noah and Noel which one is the bad apprentice butler and the further hero name?

  53. Lost_Panda says:

    Watching them die was unsatisfying, they should’ve died more horribly or felt deep regret, despair and fear

  54. Viral says:

    I’m actually a little disappointed. I was hoping at least one of them would actually take the opportunity to escape. Oh well.

  55. EpicYarnBoy says:

    I thought they were the pets of spirit yuru, they didnt last long lol

  56. kwendy says:

    Resident Evil. Hardcore no items run.

  57. And Yuku is supposedly demonic?
