Onyx remained calm. He had been monitoring the Ouro village since morning and had grasped the evacuation routes the villagers would likely take.
Onyx squinted his eyes, a malicious smile on his face.
“That’s not… it’s a lie!”
“It’s not a lie. By now, those humans who fled are probably being offered as a blood sacrifice. Not a single one will be allowed to escape. No problem, soon you’ll also meet them. But before that, I’ll carve, slash, and crush you to pieces. Now, let me hear your screams.”
“Damn it!”
Despair spread through their … Read the rest

《Threat of [Swift Claw]》

With the sun’s rise, while the air still held a chill people began their daily routines.
Inside the wooden garrison of Ouro Village to the northeast,
the stationed Ratio kept watch over his surroundings while heaving yet another sigh he had long since lost count of.
“Oi, why the long face Ratty boy?”
“It’s Ratio! Cut it out with those weird nicknames already.”
Ratio shot back at the middle-aged soldier who teased him as usual. Then sighed once more.
The soldier took a hearty swig of liquor and opened his mouth.
“Hey don’t look … Read the rest

That night, the round moon gently illuminates the earth.
With most creatures fallen asleep and only the night-loving ones on the move, the forest was filled with tranquility.
One shadow flew across the skies above the forest where Ayame once hid.
“Damn, where the hell did he run off to?”
Clicking his tongue, his eyes peculiar to birds of prey sharply focused.
It was Downburst of [Blast], who was once slain by Foil.
Serving under him was Onyx of [Triple Talon], one of the [Swift Claw].
The demonfolk who attacked Mei and Yuu and was injured by Foil’s counterattack had … Read the rest

Who Killed the Hero? Volume 1 Extra part 2 + Afterword

A short while later, another new customer arrived.

A blond-haired man with a sturdy build and refined outfit, exuding an air of “I’m a knight”. Handsome face, trimmed beard adding a touch of allure.

“This is…the shop that guy frequents, right? Zac…no, Are…no, the uh…plain-looking guy with somewhat unruly chestnut hair. Know who I mean?”

I understood. His looks are ordinary but he leaves a strong impression.

“Yes, the one who started coming recently?”

“That’s him, that guy. Give me the sweets he bought. All the leftovers.”

“That’s…quite a lot, will you be alright?”

Far too much for one person … Read the rest

Who Killed the Hero? Volume 1 Extra part 1

At a Certain Sweets Shop

The capital has been rather noisy lately.

It’s because the hero who was thought to be dead has returned.

The story goes that while compiling documents about the hero’s exploits, they realized he might actually still be alive. So the princess searched for and found him.

The documents the princess compiled were published grandly, revealing details about the hero’s journey.

According to them, the hero wasn’t originally the hero, but became the hero after his best friend who was the hero died, overcoming numerous difficulties and finally defeating the Demon Lord.

The compiled documents about … Read the rest

After that, at her words “You can come in now” I entered with some caution but Iris-chan had changed into night clothes for sleeping, much to my relief.
“Fwaaah, soooft~”

After a while, Iris-chan had a blissful expression enjoying Jamama’s dried fur.
Seemingly comfortable, Jamama was squinting happily.
“Fufu, fluffy. So fluffeh so fluffeh~”
“That much?”
With curiosity piqued seeing Iris-chan repeatedly bury her face in Jamama’s belly and stroke it with an enraptured expression, I unconsciously reached out to touch it.

But Jamama batted my hand away with its own. … Read the rest

Just before the sun fully sets.
We return and leave Ratio with the soldiers.
I take Iris-chan and Jamama back to the inn first, then visit the village elder’s home, explaining the circumstances including Jamama. After that, I went to Fabbro’s shop.
As always, it was deserted, and he was working in the back.
“Hm? Oi, bro! Quick return huh.”
Raising a hand in greeting, Fabbro welcomes me. I also raise a hand and greet him.
“No good huh. Well, don’t worry about it. It’s a magical beast, sometimes you can’t find them. As long as you’re not hurt.”
“No, … Read the rest

Who Killed the Hero? Volume 1 Epilogue


It took us some time to get to Retin Village after that.

Solon’s teleportation magic could only take us to places he had been before, so we had to go near where the Malica Kingdom used to be and head for Retin Village from there.

“Magic isn’t omnipotent. There’s no way I could identify and teleport to places I’ve never been before,”

Solon boasted for some reason.

But in that case, it means he’s been to Talis Village before.

“I…I went close to it once, to try and meet Ares’ parents. But in the end, I couldn’t meet them,”… Read the rest

When the sun started setting and the surroundings rapidly grew dark,
I took camping gear out of my bag and set up a camp with practiced ease.
While I left preparing the campfire to Iris-chan, I nimbly hunted a wild rabbit and cooked it into a meal.
“Iris-chan, can you get the pepper? It should be in the bag.”
“Here it is, go ahead.”
“Thanks. Grilling it alone would be pretty tasteless.”
I sprinkled pepper on the grilled rabbit meat and wolfed it down. Yeah, the flavor is light but the pepper accentuates it, making it very delicious.
When I … Read the rest
