Revenge of the Soul Eater Volume 2 Chapter 5 part 2

“The martial law of the Mitsurugi family dictates that the users of Seirin Hatsuki’s soul equipment must protect Onigashima under the master swordsman’s leadership. Otherwise, the monsters overflowing from the demon gate would quickly breach the island’s defenses. The exception is for newly equipped individuals, victims who have lost their ability to fight, or those unable to endure the battles on the island due to their soul equipment abilities.”

Those individuals leave the island. Even if they cannot fight on the island, they may possess enough strength to face external monsters or human adversaries.

It’s an effective utilization outside the … Read the rest

hapter 5: Void Bite

Before Astrid’s eyes, the old man’s biwa underwent a transformation.

It elongated into a slim shape, resembling the body of a human woman.

The neck extended, taking on the form of a female youkai. When the old man gently plucked the strings, a scream emitted from its mouth. Plucking the strings forcefully produced a piercing shriek.

Neither Duke Dragnote nor Astrid could move in the face of the old man playing that dreadful biwa in human form. They were being pressed by the old man’s power, but they remained cautious.

Over time, the fundamental magic techniques … Read the rest

“I-It’s an attack! Undead monsters are overflowing from the national cemetery and launching large-scale assaults on the houses of the royal capital! They are expected to reach here soon!”

“…..Undead monsters?”

Astrid furrowed her brow at the soldier’s words. She had anticipated bad news, but the content was unexpected.

Indeed, the content was unexpected. The royal capital, Horus, and even the cemetery of the grand city were protected by temple barriers without exception.

This was a measure taken to prevent disturbances caused by necromancy.

Especially in the case of the national cemetery, a barrier had been created by the Temple … Read the rest

As I opened the door and felt the air in the room, I instinctively furrowed my brow.

A strong, sweet smell filled the room. Perhaps it was the scent of sleeping pills.

On the bed, in a room permeated with the sweet aroma seeping into the walls, lay Claudia Dragnote.

She furrowed her brows and let out faint moans. She appeared better than the previous day, but still in great pain. Sleep alone wouldn’t restore her health. Her soul, which had shown signs of recovery thanks to Suzume, was on the verge of exhaustion once again.

Because I planned to … Read the rest

Duke Dragnote have two daughters: Astrid, the eldest, and Claudia, the second. I have heard that Astrid manages the household while Claudia is expected to marry the prince and become the future queen. However, if the responsibilities are limited to taking care of the house, it shouldn’t matter which daughter fulfills them. It is customary for the older sister, as the future queen, to eventually become a minister and care for her younger sister. I wonder if a significant issue has arisen in this regard.

“Has the older sister cursed the younger sister?”

“It is easier to curse someone when … Read the rest

The next morning.

Walking alone outside the Duke’s mansion, I groaned, covering my face with my right hand.

Head pounding, dizziness overwhelming me, nausea twisting in my stomach, chills running down my spine, and joint pain making it difficult to walk properly. I must look like a walking corpse at this point. The gatekeeper seemed genuinely concerned as well.

I felt worse than having a simple cold.

I should be resting in the mansion, but the joint pain makes it impossible to find peace in sleep. To be honest, even walking is a challenge. But being outside, moving through the … Read the rest

Chapter 4: Consuming Everything

“I personally cut this venison. It’s fresh and delicious, and I really want you to enjoy it,” Duke Dragnote said, sporting a big smile as he introduced the main course of the dinner—roasted venison.

As he described it, the venison had a rich flavor and emitted a wonderful aroma. I could tell it would be delicious even without taking a bite. Seal and Suzume stared at the dish with glistening eyes, unexpectedly revealing their carnivorous sides.

The table was adorned with a variety of other dishes. There was stew made from sheep raised within the duke’s … Read the rest

“Since we’re in the capital, why don’t we go shopping for clothes later?” I suggested.

It was something essential for a girl her age. Now that I think about it, I had never paid attention to those kinds of things with Seal. Perhaps I should take both of them shopping?

Just as I was about to propose the idea, Claudia seemed even more interested than Suzume.

“In that case, let’s go to the store where nee-sama and I always order our clothes!”

“Ohh, you mean the supplier for the Duke’s household?”

“Yes, the fabrics are of excellent quality, and their … Read the rest

“By the way, Sora-san.”

“What is it?”

“Did Hazard… the prince say anything about him?”

“He asked me to give Kurausora to him when we started talking,” I replied.

Upon hearing my response, Claudia furrowed her brow with a complex expression.

“I thought so… um, please don’t think poorly of him. He can be a bit rude and impulsive at times, and he has his weaknesses, but aside from that, he is a good person. He has always had a fondness for dragons and used to say as a habit that he would become the strongest dragon knight. So, when … Read the rest

As the carriage continued on, we encountered many more performers. Some showcased their art through singing or acting, while others performed impressive feats like blowing fire into the sky or gambling with monsters called black hounds.

Suzume’s and Seal’s eyes sparkled with fascination.

“Sora-san! What are those people doing?” Suzume asked.

“They are people who display their art and receive money from passersby. It’s also known as Ohineri,” I explained.

Ohineri refers to the money given by someone who is impressed by the displayed art. Suzume nodded in understanding.

The concentration of such performers in the city indicated its wealth, … Read the rest
