Human-Demon Great War ③
【Demon King’s close aide, Balto】
I confirm the war situation of every place in the tent.
There must be a messenger soldier who has the higher rank skill of “Telepathy” which is the “Distant Communication” skill in each army.
Based on the information sent by them, I monitor the war situation of every place and give instructions.
The Second Army led by Sanatoria seems to have succeeded in setting the Anogratch into the enemy’s fort.
What a person who does unreasonable things.
Even if it’s just after the ‘large breeding’, it’s not strange that it will explode anytime. And, she purposely did such a thing.
The Anogratch has the nature to greatly increase the number by doing ‘large breeding’ periodically.
The harm is small because it inhabits in the depths of the forest when the number is little, but the range of action expands after ‘large breeding’ to search for food.
Although the habitat range of the Anogratch extends over the Demon territory and the Human territory, it’s closer to the Demon territory.
So, it was the Demon that receive the damage after ‘large breeding’.
Sanatoria used such a vexing monster adversely.
Usually, this is a strategy that won’t be done first because there’s danger of being targeted.
That means she was at a pinch too.
Kogou of the Third Army and Wrath of the Eighth Army have won the war.
On the contrary, Hyuui of the Sixth Army and Merazofis of the Fourth Army were defeated.
Merazofis side ended with wounds and it seems that it’s not life-threatening.
However, Hyuui was killed.
At present, he’s the only one who was killed among the leaders.
As for the others, the battle still continues.
However, we are in losing ground.
The Kusorion Fort that the First Army led by Agna-dono attacked is the important base connected to the large country of the Human, Rengzant Empire.
Naturally, the soldiers deployed there are the best.
As expected, even Agna-dono seems to have difficulty dealing with them.
Darado of the Fifth Army also has a bad tide of war.
Although they seem to be equal at present, it seems that our side is gradually being pushed.
And, the most problematic one is the Seventh Army led by Blow.
The Hero is there.
Although the forces seem to be equal, it seems that the advance of the Hero and his comrades can’t be stopped.
The worst case, they might reach to the Blow in the end.
「Going well, going well. Don’t Kuro-chan think so too?」
Maou-sama who sat on a chair elegantly spoke to the black knight who stood next to her while I’m giving instructions to every place.
「Kuro-chan, so blunt. Can’t you say it a little more amiable?」
「I don’t see the meaning to do that」
This carefree conversation even though we in the war.
No, Kuro is serious, so Maou-sama is the one being carefree.
「However, the Commander of the Second Army, Sa-, what was it? Well, never mind. That Succubus. She did an interesting thing. Using that monkey like that, huh? Un un」
Maou-sama nods on what’s so interesting while grinning.
「Is it fine?」
「Hmm? It’s fine. Those human beings died to that extent even though our damage is 0」
「That’s right. The important thing is to keep dying even if it’s the Demon or the Human」
A chill runs down my spine to the words.
As expected, this person sees us only as baits.
Without the comrade feeling, I’m sure that she will cast us away without hesitation when the time comes.
「Kuro-chan, could it be that this matter is worrying you?」
「That’s obvious. At any rate, the war this time is cause by your clumsiness」
My body stops for an instant, and I keep it up desperately.
What are they talking?
This war is caused by Kuro?
Even I don’t know such a story.
What are they talking that even I don’t know?
「Yeah. This is caused by my naivety」
「Un un. And, I’m cleaning it up for you, you know? Be grateful.」
「I can’t be grateful. I judged that this is necessary. However, I can’t tolerate with your ways after all」
「Saying such thing, I wonder why can’t you understand that it didn’t stopped like this because it didn’t change from the old days」
「That might be so」
「It’s like that. Well, hesitating like that seems to be you」
I pretend to work and listen attentively to the conversation.
To obtain information even if it’s a little.
If I accept the talk just now, does that means that Maou-sama and Kuro are not on good terms?
Although it didn’t reach until hostility, there’s the atmosphere that it’s one step short to it.
However, it’s unnatural to have such a talk calmly when I’m here.
Is it because it’s something that has no problem even if it’s heard? Or, is it all an act to lure me?
I can’t decided it.
「Well, the target number has been achieved, I wonder? Balto, you may issue the withdrawal order to every place」
While I’m awfully shaken in my mind, still, I prevent it from getting out.
Although there are certainly a lot of disadvantageous situation in the remaining battlefields, it’s still early to withdraw.
What’s the reason to withdraw?
「The aim this time is only the Hero. As long as we can kill the Hero, the rest doesn’t matter」
Maou-sama mutters as if she’s answering the question of my mind.
Kill the Hero?
However, the Hero is still alive.
Why even though he’s not killed?
「There’s no need to worry. At any rate, Shiro-chan is over there. Be it the Hero or whatever it is, nobody can win against my best masterpiece, Shiro」
Maou-sama who declares it with full of confidence.
The girl called Shiro accompanied by the Tenth Army together with Blow are at the ground where the Hero is.
「As long as Shiro-chan is there, the Hero won’t return alive. Absolutely.」
To the figure of Maou-sama who said so and laughed, I pick up an unpleasant premonition.
Thx for the chapters o/
Thanks for the chapters.
I’m starting to care less and less about anything outside of the main character.
The main-character was just about to barbecue her meat, and suddenly:
What the fuck, author.
the mc sections are good, the non-mc sections are so bitty, viewpoint changes every three seconds so it’s harder to stay focused, i didn’t mind a few chaps of the prodigy mage and his sister, but now jumping everywhere, even the mao who i (in theory) find relatively interesting, lacks appeal as i fear the viewpoint will drop or change
oh well ^^ thanks for the chapter
Now I can get a picture, the Maou isn’t really Kumoko, because she was saying things that only an old person says, so, she is doing it for the administrators(?) or some other shady purpose. But that means that Kumoko have a distorted time perception or the time is slower the deeper you go on that dungeon (area time distortion)….
Thanks for the translation!
or the events here are done in the future while Kumoko is still trapped inside the labyrinth. Middle layer is bigger than Hokkaido anyways. Let’s say the territory stretches like Russia if we combine the 4 layers (upper, middle, lower, bottom).
IIRC, the human nobility are tested when they reach 5 years old. Shun was tested during the earliest side stories.
Where is my cute spidey!
Dear Moonies, Thank you for the chapter my wonderful Author, Translator(s), (Editor), (donors)!
Once you get farther in the novel, you will revisit this chapter and understand more. It really comes together nicely
It’s really shitty writing if I, the reader, need to handle the orientation of chapters as if it’s a bloody maze.
There’s a difference between leaving hints and foreshadowing, and just completely teleporting to the other side of the globe to talk about people and circumstances that have nothing to do with the current disposition of the protagonist.
I don’t mind the little bits of information, but we’re getting waaaaayyy too much information here. And most of it is pointless filler.
P.S: Just in order to contribute something other than ranting:
Me thinks the Demon Lord here kills people to increase her level exponentially. That is why she has a certain quota of death. As to why the Demon Lord needs to kill the Hero? Shrug.
What the fuck is going on? Where is the cute Kumuko?
Now I really do think this is the MC, she called those monsters monkeys instead of their name didn’t she…..This is getting interesting.
