Interlude: Daily Life of a Former Top Henchman Turned Part-Time Worker

Once a high-ranking henchman of evil organization Cleared known as Ailsherad, now a part-timer at the local supermarket [Daikokuya].
Currently, she holds a part-time position, working four days a week.
(Seems like she’s getting used to stocking shelves…?)
Ailsherad, who had lived her life with battles as her role, found herself struggling a bit with the job of a supermarket clerk. Nevertheless, she was gradually adapting to it.
Stocking shelves involves arranging and displaying products, pulling out expired items, and organizing shelves. Sometimes, … Read the rest

As Banshoku Green, I had fought and protected people, including students at school, friends, acquaintances, and even relatives.
And these people believed in me.
” ………… Well, Mr. Green is very shy. I’ll let him know next time I see him.”
Rather than sulking about being unnoticed, I needed to be more self-aware. With a self-deprecating smile, I conveyed that to her.
“I appreciate it. Well, you see, that incident was one of the reasons for my transfer. It’s dangerous to be involved in battles.”
She chuckled with a cheeky smile.
“So, I appreciate … Read the rest

I raise my finger. The new enemy organization’s monsters are believed to have the secret in their armor… that’s the analysis of the technology team. Currently, analysis is progressing using the fragments of scattered monsters, but,
“We still don’t know, so the report is like something stuck in the back teeth.”
Remembering, Akashi. In my mind, the dissatisfied expression of Dr. Palette, the leader of the technology team, comes to mind.
“He’s been making us work too hard on the Milliocollor. I don’t want to rush him too much.
“It’s difficult. Is there no choice but to handle it on … Read the rest

“Do you have something you want to ask?”
She’s sharp. I resigned and opened my mouth.
“You, do you not regret anything you’ve done?”
That’s the impression I have of her – Taratatt, the former leader of Cleared.
In the month and a half I’ve been observing her, she doesn’t seem to have much attachment to what she did.
“It’s over, or rather?”
(Ashella… she expresses her frustration straightforwardly. Looking at her now, she might not have any attachment to Cleared itself, but she does feel humiliated by her defeat.)
On the other … Read the rest

“Can you aim, Blue…?”
“With Green’s fully enhanced Blue Grad Arrow – Long, it’s just barely. It can reach up to five kilometers.”
“Pink is creating a diversion with bombs, and Green is guarding the headquarters. But using that bow took a lot of power.”
“It won’t last long… let’s finish it in one shot.”
Fixed artillery-type monster Megabarred appeared near the Banshokuger headquarters early in the morning. After long-range sniping from outside the range, we launched a full attack and defeated it.

“This one, it revives and multiplies!?”
“Maybe the main body … Read the rest

Chapter 3: The Human System

Having breakfast at the Kuri’s house, carrying Ashella’s packed lunch to work, sometimes fighting as a Banshokuger, and then returning home for dinner
– my days as Midori Kusama continued in this manner.
“I thought things would be a mess, but surprisingly, it’s going well.”
Surprisingly, things are going well.
Unexpectedly, Taratatt, the former leader of Cleared, and Ashella, the former high-ranking member, didn’t seem to be making any suspicious moves from Midori’s perspective.
Just the other day, Taratatt was playing kick-the-can with the kids in the housing … Read the rest

Interlude: A Tale of Death and Rebirth

This is right after the final battle between Banchokujer and Cleared.
In the crumbling underground of Cleared’s secret base, something stirred.
“Ugh, ha, ha… ────────────”
A strike from Banchokujer. A body engulfed in flames. The sensation of death shrouding the mind.
“Phew, haha, that was a new sensation… Well, it’s obvious, never died before.”
Consciousness mercifully returned, but there was no time to relax. Without delay, the investigation by Banchokujer within the base would begin soon.
“Before that, I have to escape… Guh!”
With a thud, the body collapsed. Almost no freedom … Read the rest

One morning, I found myself fighting a monster near a river outside the town.
“Ugh! Damn it, take this!”
“Hey, no way! I can’t handle being in the frontline!”
Using the momentum of the punch, I quickly step back. “Blue! Pink! Switch with me for a bit!”
With a quick shout, I seek help from my comrades who were supporting from behind.
Banshoku pink – Nadeshiko Raven.
Banshoku blue – Ao Kaihara.
“Oh, Green, you’re such a handful.” “Maybe it was too much after all?”
Both of them are women, but their combat skills are higher than mine. They’re popular … Read the rest

“Your brain can understand even that much.”
With a hated words from Ashella, Taratatt continues.
“On the other hand, I can’t lead someone to believe something they don’t actually think. For example, I can’t make you completely obedient to me.”
“Hmm,” I said, taking a mouthful of yogurt. It was mixed with dried fruit, the moisture being absorbed by them, leaving the fruits juicy and the yogurt with a concentrated, rich flavor.
“This is delicious, I’ll have another… No, not that… So, the people in the country you ruled over thought, ‘Being ruled by Cleared might … Read the rest

“If, hypothetically, I let you go, what will you do?” I asked.
“Well, we’ll sustain our physical bodies through physical nutrition, delaying our disappearance a bit while living quietly,”
replied the big leader plainly.
“What if someone comes along and likes you? Will your power come back?”
“It’s not about one or two individuals’ emotions. At best, it would only help us maintain our existence,”
There was no deception in her words. Certainly, my emotions had reached them, but it was at that level.
And if they were to revive with just that, it would be easy to make other … Read the rest
