Volume 4, Chapter 19: The Demon Princess, Part 2


“……Al. Are you sure you don’t want to come?”


Alfio couldn’t reply to Anteikowa the Elf’s, words.

It was the first time he’d gone to war. The threatening power of the real Hero. A raging, large-scale magic. Even the Daemons were afraid of the genuine Saint, who had healed tens of thousands of the injured in a flash.

The girl that he had thought was collaborating with the Daemons had brokered peace with the Daemons, and in addition, she rushed in to a horrible place where even he could not enter as a Hero.

It was like a black vortex that continued into hell.

Since he had memories of his previous life, he thought that it would be impossible to head into such a place, where common sense didn’t exist.

Anteikowa, who had been called a [Saint] as well, was having issues when compared with a true Saint, and Alfio who was also trying to show his power as a [Hero].

But she didn’t recognize that she wasn’t the [Real Thing], or that the Hero that she had chosen was a [Fake].


“Really……… In that case, I will be walking my own path from here on in.”

“Eeh…… Anko…?”

Anteikowa pulled her hand out of Alfio’s outstretched hand, and then began to collect her things.

“Well, err…… Al, I will also be going back to my home.”


Looking somewhat sorry, the swordswoman Cheria began to pack her equipment beside Anteikowa.

“Al is a hero… I would be happy if I could help. But, I am about to get married, and my parents are starting to getting annoyed”

In other words, if he wasn’t a hero, then they wouldn’t want to spend time with him normally.

“Bye then, Al. It was fun up until now. I will go home escorted by Anko.”

“Thank you for your help. Let’s go, Cheria.”


Even as he spoke in an inaudible, husky voice that couldn’t be heard, the two of them turned around, and broke away from Alfio.



Alfio crumbled as if he had been knocked over, as his lovers experienced a change of heart even after they’d travelled together for years.

Alfio didn’t know what had gone wrong. Was it because he didn’t have the [Courage] to fight like a hero? It was really impossible to avoid that much danger.

Someone gently approached Alfio who was stuck there without an answer.

“……E-err… Al-sama…?”


Alfio faltered as he looked at the only girl that remained.

When he thought about it, Alfio had no memory of interacting or conversing much with Ophelia.

He saw her only as the [Younger sister of the beautiful noble sister siblings], and since she was 13 at the time, he was more fascinated with the beauty and nobility of Athena, but had invited her anyway, being unable to lay his hands on the two of them, since they were very young.

A younger sister who couldn’t do anything without her older sister; a girl that liked the things her sister liked, and turned herself away from the things her sister didn’t.

Only such a little girl… called out to Alfio by herself.

Athena had recently been cold towards Alfio. Be that as it was, Alfio didn’t know why Ophelia was calling out to him.

“A-Al-sama, please cheer up… those two… they… if you do your best, they will come back.”

Speaking for herself for the first time, Ophelia’s words raised Alfio’s spirits.



Alfio felt like he had finally seen what the inside of this girl was like.

Clumsy, weak, foolish, a simpleton, an idiot… and yet really gentle.

“……A, Al-sama…?”



As Alfio tried to hug Ophelia with a teary face that was overflowing with emotion, Ophelia screamed and fell backwards on her butt.

“I, I was a fooooooool…… It’s fine if only Ophe remained. Let’s go home and start a farm. Let’s work hard to do food processing. I won’t let you be poor; I will never cheat on you, so please marry meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee”



Ophelia replied despite being in a huge fluster. She was surprised by Alfio and his actions, and held on to his crying face that was like a child’s, quietly stroking it.

Alfio had finally gained the [Courage] to live as a true person after experiencing two lives.

Ophelia also finally remembered that he was to be 15 this year, the age of marriage.

What would her sister say if she saw this situation?

And if those two who went elsewhere were to know that the two of them were going to get married……


Ophelia, who was always following at the back in the Shiguresu Hero party remembered well the contents of the [Wanted Poster] she noticed as they left the last city.

{Strangely, there were a lot of features of Alfio listed… Since there’re few Elves here, they would stand out, but will be okay to go to the town?}







Heraness jumped back with a startled face as he noticed a golden-haired girl that was laughing in the same way next to him.


“Oh, I’ve been rude. I am Yurushia. I’m pleased to make your acquaintance.”

With not even a shred of tension, plucking at the hem of her black and silver dress was a [Devil] that was gracefully greeting him, and Heraness’ face warped.

And at his other shoulder…

“[Yurushia, that is one of the Demon World’s Seven Pillars, the [Demon Lords]… well, now it’s 6 pillars. That’s one of them.]”

The violent [Demon Beast] that had killed and eaten one of the pillars of the Demon World, the [Demon Lords], was sitting there as a black cat.

“Then it’s considerably strong, Rinne?”

“[It’s weaker than I am. Or rather, it’s the weakest among the [Demon Lords]. It’s just a little bit stronger than Yurushia.]”




He was irritated by that attitude that lacked in nervousness, and it seemed both of them were Demons that were [Named] just like Heraness, the first in thousands of years, with uncertain abilities, and usually the [Demon Lords] paid attention to the new [Devils].

Moreover, they were even able to [Manifest] here fully due to his negligence, something that even he couldn’t do.

“[Welcome, Yurushia, and Rinne. Welcome to my, Heraness’, base… or perhaps I should say it was good of you to have come. This is a pocket dimension that I made for the sake of connecting to the material world. If you were an ordinary Demon…… no, because you are Demons, you shouldn’t have been able to make it here easily.]”

Because of that he was careless.

Heraness knew that there was an unknown [Demon] that was near Geas that could be called an [Irregularity], but he didn’t think that it would get involved.

An unknown [Demon]…… How could such a ridiculous existence be born?

“Is that so? I was able to come normally…”

“[It’s only just because of [Yurushia]. If I wasn’t on your shoulder, I wouldn’t know if even I would be able to reach it properly. In fact, the four of them haven’t arrived yet, right?]”

“Ah~… that’s true.”


The three kinds of Demons that stood at the top of the Demon World, a [Demon Lord], a [Demon Beast], and a [Devil] were together in a narrow space that was not even a tenth of the world, that should never have happened.

Moreover, this [Relaxed] atmosphere should be impossible.

Even though there are three pillar Demons, even though the magic power and miasma swirled, and even as the space began to decay, it would not be strange to say that this would become a second Demon World where lesser Demons would spawn infinitely.


“By the way…”

Yurushia’s atmosphere changed, and there was a slimy, coal-tar-like presence.

“Hirai-san, won’t you give me this?”

“[Who, is that…]”

Heraness was puzzled by the feeling of wanting to make multiple questions at the same time, but forcibly returned it to the main line of questioning forcibly.

“[Is this……? You knew that there was a [Contract] with me, cousins?]”

There was Geas surrounded by the three Greater Demon Pillars, on the verge of death and madness. Heraness’ appearance cheered upon seeing a decent reaction.


The contracts of Demons were [Absolute]. If one broke it of their own will, it would cause [self-denial], and their very existence would be compromised.

Trying to nullify it was to be declare complete hostilities to that Demon, and indeed, it was as if they were proclaiming their [Enmity] towards [Demon Lord] Heraness.

And yet……

“Did you say something? Monkey-san”

A beautiful Demon girl that had a smile like a flower.

With that one line, Heraness’ face distorted into that of a Demonic monkey, and the [Demon Beast] that was on the shoulder of the [Devil] breathed a quiet sigh.


In that instant, Heraness and Yurushia’s hands stretched towards Geas at the same time, and as their hands clashed, discernible sparks scattered, and Heraness grasped Geas with one hand and fled to the rear.


The right sleeve of the Yurushia’s dress was broken, and Heraness bled black from where he had been struck across the left cheek, even as he laughed.

“[…Fast. But, it’s my win here.]”

Even as he spoke Heraness flew backwards and disappeared into a big door that was formed from the shadows.



“……He got away.”

“[The opponent is a several-thousand-year-old [Demon Lord], after all. An [Arch demon] would have been annihilated with that amount.]”

“Am I not old enough?”

While looking at my dress that was happily sucking up my magic power to regenerate itself, I appropriately responded to Rinne’s sermon.

But it was strong indeed. Before I fought against Rinne I would have been afraid.

“[…Are you planning on pursuing?]”

“Of course.”

“[Stop that. The space is especially strange on the other side. I thought of it looking at this subspace, that Heraness might be doing research to connect dimensions. It is said that it’s not easy for a [Devil] to return after travelling through many dimensions.]”


But, there weren’t many souls like that of that grandpa’s. It looked like karasumi and seemed delicious……




She heard voices of the followers who had finally caught up.

If even those children took this much time, it must really be a scary space. Anyway, they were all assembled. Nn…? 5 people?

“There’s one person extra…?”

“Excuse me. It was picked up along the way.”

Tina dropped the person she was carrying in front of me appropriately. …… It’s sloppy.

“Araara, well, well.”


I didn’t expect to see this person in such a place.

“It’s been a while, Athena-onee-sama. How are you?”

I gave her a happy, sweet smile, while she stared at me with her teeth out.

“Ara, that’s no good.”

“Annoying. You, after all, had connections to the Daemons! I know that that Demon Beast was also one of your [Familiars] originally!”


Those are some interesting things being said.

Fannie burst out with a [Fuu] while looking at Rinne, but well, such things don’t matter.

“To say these kinds of things expressly, in this dangerous place…… is it love?”

“Don’t joke around!”

Crap, this is too fun. After all, it’s great fun to [play around] with onee-sama.


“Fannie, take Onee-sama outside. I’ll return after relaxing and enjoying myself.”


“What are you saying!? I just told you not to joke around. I will reveal all of your evil deeds, to Father-sama,”

“What would Yurushia-sama like to do?”

As if onee-sama wasn’t even there, Noa was confirming the future schedule. From Noa’s view, it seems onee-sama was as good as absent from the schedule. …don’t tremble, me.

“I-I well,”

“Well, yes, now that you mention it, this place does seem to be pretty badly distorted.”


“Is it okay to withdraw? In the meantime, I’ll send you all several thousands of subordinates for examination.”


“What… subordinates? thousands!? What is that!?”


You’re being annoying, onee-sama.



With no sense of caution to a surprise attack at all, I dropped Rinne from my shoulder, and went through the big door that was open with onee-sama.




She came along…… Athena onee-sama.



“Master, are you alright?”

I could hear everyone’s voice from the other side of the door. I couldn’t see the other side, but it looked like it wasn’t completely disconnected.

“I’m fine. Don’t come over this way.”


“It’s fine it’s fine”

I tried to reach out to the door for now.


“How is it~?”

“It seems to be difficult to return through this door…… I’ll look for another… Now, then”

I turned my eyes towards onee-sama who was still staring at me.


“It’s just the two of us…… onee-sama.”

“……Wh-, what?”

As I gradually leaked out my [Presence], onee-sama’s complexion began to turn white.

“Fufuu. You said something interesting earlier? …about Father-sama?”

“……It’s unrelated.”

This reaction……perhaps.

“Unless, when I was born, I had monopolized all of Father-sama’s affection…… is it?”


“……You’re honestly being very disobedient.”

“Shut up!”

To let things get into such a state…… she’s guilty of letting things go too far.

“How old were you when you became twisted?”

“Shut up shut up! I know that you’re a bad person who’s collaborated with the Daemons! Because my blood was pure, you specially caused my engagement annulment, and why with Roderick-sama,”



It seemed that onee-sama was also aware of the fact. It would be bad if the blood became too thick……

“Really… you’re so twisted.”



Athena-onee-sama, how cute……

However. Although it was nice to have a Tsundere, it’s a huge amount of trouble for everyone else, you know?

Besides that……


“Athena onee-sama seems to have misunderstood…”


When I released the presence of a Demon, the whites of my eyes were corroded with [Black], and my pupils were stained a bloodlike crimson.

“…ah, …Aa”

At my onee-sama who was speechless, I smiled quietly at her, showing her my red crystalline fangs.


“As you can see, I am… a [Demon] after all.”


I thrust myself at my sister’s throat, while she was frozen with fear.

“Aaaa, …a, Ah.”

Sweet… Sweet! What a sweet soul! It was even better than that beauty’s… better than most.

I wanted to slurp it all up at once. …But, aaaah, it was wasteful.



A small amount of blood. While halfway through taking the soul, I took my mouth off of my sister’s throat.

As expected, it was best to slurp it up while it was alive.

Sitting down my mute, hollow-eyed sister, I spoke to her kindly.

“Athena onee-sama. With half of your soul, I took most of your memory.”


“Maybe it will be difficult before you can live a decent life from now on, but please do your best to live. I suppose that if your soul is able to revive, I will get the other half as well.”


If I left about half her soul, she shouldn’t become a vampire. It’s an experiment, and if it succeeds, I can increase the number of people.


“Tina, Fannie, can you hear me?”

“Yes, Master.”


“I’ll send onee-sama over there after this. I think I might be able to send her since her soul is diminished, but please deliver her to Father-sama. She’s lost her memory.”


Well, then, now that I’ve tasted the soul of onee-sama. I’d really like to harvest another, you know?


Author’s Notes:

She has a Demonic expression. It’s the sisters’ turn.


I cut it here because it was too long.

The Hero’s [Fourth Heroine’s End], the older sister’s [half bad end].


Two chapters remain. They’re scheduled for Friday night and Saturday.

Thank you for keeping with me.

App’s Notes:

Fake Hero gets his happy ending! I wasn’t on board until this chapter, but I kinda dig the out of nowhere pairing.

Big fan of the loose thread cutting this chapter.

Piroton’s Notes:

My god, I accidentally did Chapter 20 before I realized something was missing. Also, this is one heck of a massive chapter. Consider it a nice change of pace, I guess. It’s nice to read a whole big chunk of Yuru, no?


Also, I’m drowwwwning in workkkkkk. Don’t worry, though. I like Yuru too much to give her up. And no, unlike the author, I can’t release double chapters, that’d kill me.

    Irreparable damage to the astral body? Or a long and slow recovery?

  2. Eksentrysyti says:

    I still don’t have a clue why the Fake Hero was even written into the story. Came out of nowhere, went back into the abyss. Has nothing to do at all with Yurushia.

    • killking says:

      World Building? Also from like no direct influence he has lots of indirect ones. He is the reason yurus sisters are here. So one of her sisters get married and one lost half her soul.

      • PhantomStarlight says:

        If the reason is worldbuiling I really can’t get on board. His type is the #1 thing I hate about these stories (hero reincarnators, especially when they are selfimportant thinking the world exists for themselves)

    • jesse says:

      riily? nothing to do with Yurushia? here i thoght that he was Yurushia comic relief

  3. Adobo says:

    Thanks for the chapter. A decent ending for the fake hero; if he is true to himself and not too arrogant and drunk in lesser power maybe he got his promise dream of a wonderful life in the another world.

  4. 4 pencils says:

    And so the hero left with the fourth hero, starting a …farm? wait what? Regardless of her personality, she’s still royalty (lol) you know…

    Thanks for the chapter 🙂

  5. hecate says:

    i think the fake hero is used as a plot/carriage to bring athena to yuru, coz normally no matter how bad she is, a duke’s daughter could not wander in war zone right ?? well yuru is special coz that “war” zone is pretty much her food bowl

    • Dinzu says:

      Aye, and I doubt this is the last we’ve heard of Anteikowa and Cheria. I suspect that they’ll play a part in some future plot.

  6. Tinchen says:

    ty for the chap
    yay happy litle sister

  7. Almonds says:

    Agh I wanted to see Yurushia scare Athena more! Well, thanks for the release!

  8. Kei says:

    Wow, Yuru looked soo cute with those black eyes and red pupils!!!(In my Imagination)
    Idk why but this is the first time ive felt happt for the fake Hero, and i hope he lives a good life with his past memories and Ophe in his Farm(lol).
    Thanks for the Chapter~
    I seriously cant survive without a weekly dose of this…

  9. Pyo says:

    (…) you specially caused my engagement annulment, and why with Roderick-sama,”

    There’s something odd going on here. And why…what?

    Thanks for translating.

  10. kirindas says:

    Lol! Random Happy end pairing with the hero. And the long awaited devouring of the evil sister! Yayyy!
    Thanks for the new chapter!

  11. thanghe says:

    No one worries about the elf & knight woman?
    If they go to the city carelessly, they may face “true bad end” you know?

  12. nonsense says:

    i’ve been wanting to ask something app
    would u continue this series till the remake version?

  13. PerpetualRed says:

    I’m glad the fake Hero realized that he wasn’t the hero he thought he was.

    Sure, he probably saved many lives (from a modern standpoint), but an OP, harem-building protagonist? Nope.

    It seems that fake Hero went down the farmer route. But a “hero” team splitting route isn’t something I’ve seen in other novels before…

    Thanks for the chapter. The currently most annoying characters of the story have finally been dealt with.

  14. Memi says:

    The older sister would be the most opposed to Alfio and Ophelia dating so the memory loss helps. But Ophelia said yes because she got pushed into it so we may see them again.

  15. FanofCuteCarelessDemon says:

    I feel everything has been rushed, we went from the introduction of the other hero only for him to have no influence at all on the story. The war seems extremely short and irrelevant with no actual effects on the human world other than a scare it gave everyone. Don’t get me wrong, the events that happened are good (+ cute and fluffy) but they have been oddly paced and seem random.

  16. DOHere says:

    Thank you for the chapter~

  17. kwendy says:

    “Half bad end”. Dammit author and awful puns, stom making me laugh.
