Volume 2, Chapter 6: I’ve Become a Master (First Half)


After that birthday party I didn’t want, a few months have passed.

Seriously, come on… next time, I will absolutely decline.

Oh well. At least encountering those lovely sisters of mine was good, ufufu.


But as I thought… such a rash act in front of the royal family, Elea-sama is in an especially large rage. Anyways, it seems that before I enroll in the magical academy, I’ll be going to a boarding school in other countries for a while.

Well, what can I do? It looks better if I’m more mature about this, so let’s wait this out and have fun.

I hope I come back while still in school, if possible. It seems the nobles are saying I’m a very valuable thing.

I apologize to father, who had on a pained face. What a complicated love between us. I’ll have to be careful…


I did, however, leave my sisters a nasty [Souvenir].



“Yurushia, can you hear me?”

“Yes, Honored Father.”

I called out, as I ran over with a *To te to te*, I planted myself on Father’s lap like a kitten while he talked to me.


“Do you know what we export from the Verusenia Dukedom to the country Sister married into?”

“Let’s see… distilled spirits and… iron products.”

For our exports, we import the crops and fruit that have been produced in Shiguresu.

Things like fresh vegetables; they aren’t frozen with magic since that would be unreasonably costly.

We import fruit wine from Shiguresu, and send back what we distill from it. We send out our brand of sake.

“So, when you turn six, I want you to help with inspection of the production site.”

“… Inspection?”


Work, is it. Finally, I can depart from being a purebred good-for-nothing.

…Eh? Did he say six-years-old?


Listening to the full story, while it seems that the Touru territory finances the export products, it’s actually made in the outskirts of the city and the surrounding villages.

In addition to his visiting work, and his job in the Royal Capital, he needs to go to other countries for diplomatic reasons; he can’t really go anywhere freely.

Is that the reason why he didn’t visit me that often…?


Eh, oh well, it can’t be helped, I’m sure he had a good reason.

Besides, why do I have to go, it seems that you just want me to come with you.

Eh…? From the perspective of a demon?

It seems that they want the famous [Saint] [Princess] to come.

I understand now, is it like a singer? Uh…? An idol tour, isn’t it? Is that what you want?


“I think I heard that people often get terrible injuries in the mines and ironworks out there. Yurushia, would you be willing to heal even a few people? I think their morale would be uplifted by a magnitude if Yurushia went out to meet them.”

Condolences from an idol are better, huh…


Shouldn’t there be a priest or church in such a place? I figure an ordinary Priest-san could use my stupid holy magic.

When horrible burns or an accidental cave-in occurs, the surviving workers will no longer be able to be employed, even if they survive. Therefore, they want me, the one called a saint, to heal their injuries and hearts…

I understand…

But I… haven’t received the saint certification from any denominations, have I?


“Since Yurushia is still little, your certification of sainthood is still pending, understand? So, your title of saint is specific to this kingdom.”

“Is that so…”

I… I don’t need such an embarrassing title…


Being called a saint in the streets, it seems that the ostensible reason why this was so while I was still not being certified from any sect was because they can’t measure my abilities this young.

The behind the scenes reason is that this kingdom is the [Holy Kingdom].

Just like how generic and brand-name products are not of the same value, being recognized as the [Holy Kingdom’s Saint] carries a special meaning.


A few hundred years ago, nearly every sect was flooding with saints, the king of that time sent all of the saints on a punitive expedition against an [Arch-Demon], and they say that not a single person came back, what a stupid story.

I figure more than half fled, when I think about it.

Because of such a stupid legend, saints are rarely certified in the holy kingdom, and those that are, are quite intense. It’s terrible.


“For the same reason, there’s another title that’s equally difficult to earn. Yurushia, do you know?”

“Yes… a Demon Lord?” (TL Note: This be different than demon folk, from the spiritual plane… I think… they use different terminology at least…)

“…Indeed in the Holy Kingdom, we have never produced a Demon Lord…”

Wrong, very wrong!

Those also flooded in at one point, but since they had mobilized all of their saints, what did they do?

“Isn’t it nice to be able to stand next to a [Saint-sama]??

Father, I don’t think that response is appropriate. .


“For that reason, after just a bit longer Yurushia will have a dedicated escort of servants. All of which would have similar ages to you.”

Is this an Idol group…?


I can understand. Vio was originally the exclusive maid of Mother, Sarah-chan is normally serving as the knight of a Duke, and only acts as an escort knight when I go out.

So, I think that when I go to school, it’ll be good to have a child close to my age as a [Close Aide].


Still… I heard this from Vio and the others but these kids that will be serving me are the children of the noble families that were crushed as a result of the Second Demon Summoning Incident. Not only that, they would have ended up like their older siblings but because they were studying abroad at the time they were unofficially spared and now had nowhere to go.


Father… you’re too good-natured.

But, the children aren’t responsible for the sin. There are no sins, but… what is this feeling pressing down on me…?



(App’s translation prefix: Every sentence said by the new character, Min ends with ~desu. I will be relying on all of you to add it in your heads when you read her, because no.)

(Piroton: Wait, you mean we can just tell readers to add details? Quick, everyone imagine me as a cute gi- *knocked out*)


Forgetting that trifling story, let’s move on.

I was worried all day today, since I intend to have Min, the bookworm maid, teach me all about monsters in this world.

For the regional tour… err, for the inspection visit, such knowledge would be required.

Other than vampires, what else are present in the world?


Min showed me a book called [The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Monsters] from the collection of books she has. Something seems off, though…

“What is this?”

“This is a rabbit. It’s weak but its meat is delicious.”

“A-and this is?”

“This is a wolf; it readily approaches travelers and accepts any food given.”

Wait, what happened to the wildness…?

“…and this?”

“This is a wild boar. It’s a little strong, but the meat is very tasty.”



Is the “helpful” meant in that fashion? I suppose on a long journey it would be helpful.


“Ah, do you know anything about dangerous monsters?”


She didn’t make a surprised face, though I certainly would have.

Min then brought out a book titled [Bestiary of Perilous Monsters], and began to explain it to me.

Thank goodness… It’s not some ordinary book.


“This is a tiger, which is rarely seen, it moves very quickly, and is very dangerous to horses.”


If such a thing came out of the woods, I’d be scared.

“This is a rhinoceros. If it looks a traveler in the eyes, it will charge them with its horn.”

“…I see”

“This is a hippopotamus. If it sees a traveler it will slam its body into them.”


“This is an elephant. If it sees a traveler, it will rush over them with a stampede.”


What do you mean…?

These monsters are strangely familiar…

Actually, hold on a second. If it sees a traveler? Are hippopotamuses and rhinoceroses commonly found on something like a mountain road? Are the roads that scary? Are you trying to scare the hell out of this poor demon?


Ah… though I said that, this isn’t what I wanted to know.

What about “Monsters”, you know?

There are things like a Demon Lord in this world, if I see the Demon Lord riding a hippopotamus in place of a dragon, I’ll definitely laugh and point.


App’s Comments:

Just saying, as a GM I plan on having my players encounter the above ASAP. Too perfect.




Side note: no idea why this chapter has the name it has, even in part two nothing ever happens in the realm of husbands.

  2. Danilae says:

    Lmao These are some super dangerous foreign creatures in this scary new world Yuru, be careful xD

  3. Anonymous says:

    She has absolutely no idea how dangerous hippos are and I look forward to the hilarity if she ever sees one running full speed and or biting things in half.

    • Anonymous says:

      Gigantic foot long fangs, a mouth that opens far too wide to be reasonable, and they can outrun you. Oh and a large mass of bulk and muscle.

  4. Manga Hunter says:

    I would laugh too if the demon Lord rode a hippopotamus. Just the image makes me laugh. Thanks for the chapter.

  5. kirindas says:

    Lol! A Demon Lord riding a Hippo is a wonderfully terrifying image! ROFL!!!! It would be great for Yuru to encounter such a situations!! XD
    Thanks for the new chapter!

  6. gaitordone says:

    wait…what!!?? there making her entourage out of children who families betrayed the the world!?…do they even consider her safety at all!?

    • Ruubix says:

      Their families are probbaly paying off their debts/crimes with their children and ate being watched carefully to the point of being held hostage. The families will probably continue to act as servants for a couple generations till they redeem themselves. That’s how it worked in the olden days.

    • libraryrocker says:

      I think the families of the children are all dead.

  7. Ruubix says:

    I think the moment a Demon lord met her they’d bow and automatically start serving her…

    • name moniker says:

      100% if they saw [GOLDEN BEAST], but if they saw a Saint with a massive amount of magic power slowly waddling towards them…well if they’re smart they’d run like hell(monkeys)

  8. Nimroth says:

    Sure give her servants whose families have fallen due to her, that sounds like a good idea…lol

  9. Karn says:

    主人 【しゅじん】 (n) master, head (of a household), landlord, one’s husband, employer, host, (P)

    The chapter’s name’s probably “I’ve become a master” as she get her own personal maid.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Hippos are scary.

    Much thanks.

  11. But since spirits are able to see through Yuru’s true nature, and some animals have freaked out at her, wouldn’t these “monsters” run like hell from seeing a real fluffy monster? And random encounters like that would be hilarious

  12. Kojiro_S says:

    Hippos would probably be at least B-rank, considering they are labeled as the most dangerous animal on Africa.

  13. Marmot says:

    Thanks for another (part) chapter of Yuru-sama’s oddball take on the world. I would like to know lots more, like what “souvenir” she left her sisters and what the heck she is doing for most of the chapter, but it was a fun read.

  14. libraryrocker says:

    I will be relying on all of you to add it in your heads when you read her, because no. <— I laughed at this!

    I'm trying to add the desu in my head, but I don't know how well it's working….

    Well, she became a master… of noble children? XD

    Thank you very very very much for all your hard work!!!!

  15. OverlyFriendly says:

    The Hippo flag has been raised.

  16. DOHere says:

    Thank you for the chapter

  17. The first sentence is repeated.

  18. Random Internet User (tm) says:

    Thank you kindly for the chapter.

    If our DM sics a hippo-mounted demon lord on us, you’re taking the blame, y’hear?! ;>

  19. Ricecal says:

    A very good way to scare her.
    Thank you very much

  20. ireadmanga says:

    ”After that birthday party I didn’t want, a few months have passed since that birthday party that I didn’t want to have.”

    Sounds weird. And the first part is kinda redundant. Maybe change it into:

    ”A few months have passed since that birthday party that I didn’t want to have.”

    Anyway, thanks for the chapter.

  21. dtim says:

    I will now add desu to all my comments, desu~
    Let the idol group tour begin, desu~
    Thanks for the chapter, desu~

  22. garrytwoshoes says:

    you still doing 2 chapters a week?

    • App says:

      As soon as my buffer is rebuilt, yes. I believe in consistency over frequency, so when consistency is threatened, I’ll slow down chapters ahead of time. (Never to less than one a week, though.)
