Volume 5: Giichi of the Nothingness

—You should now know, or learn of you still don't know: Do not try your luck against me, for I am Giichi Asmodeus, for I am the one who is above all and everything. Don't you even dare to forget that. Do you hear me!? Heed my words that I'm saying right now very well, and remember them always. Heed these words of mine very well...............Belial-san...............just in case we'll meet again.........

Prologue

Some unknown Devil, who woke up to a Maou, Sakurako, being also called by her a "fellow Maou", and he is revealed to be a Maou, who goes by the name Asmodeus. It was revealed short later, that this certain Maou, Asmodeus, has a regert, and a strong will to revenge against some certain WereDevie. This Devil's name is later revealed to be Giichi Yerhze, who just changed his name to Giichi Asmodeus, due to his position as the Maou Asmodeus.

Shortly after, Giichi Asmodeus decided what to do, and took his revenge against the certain WereDevie, namely, Shar'Crave Yerlyi. And right then it was—he, who goes by the name of Kodoku Lucifer, a descendant of the original Lucifer, fought against Giichi, although actually coming there under a task that was to kill Shar'Crave Yerlyi "before he opens his mouth and says something". Although, right after that, Kodoku Lucifer had to retreat, due to Giichi Asmodeus overpowering every estimation.

Half a year later, Kodoku Lucifer came back, and made a trap, for Giichi Asmodeus to get in. Kodoku Lucifer then fought against Giichi Asmodeus over the title of the only true and best, Daimaou, or in other words, it was a fight over the title of [A True Daimaou]. Although Kodoku Lucifer tried to fight Giichi Asmodeus, all there was during the battle was mostly the two of them (Giichi Asmodeus and Kodoku Lucifer) talking and revealing secrets of this story. Although, because of that, Kodoku Lucifer went back shrotly afterwards.

At the same day, although a bit later, Giichi Asmodeus got to know (through his [Queen]) that he was to have a [Rating Game] against the one who once was the very well known champion of the [Rating Game], Belial, who got his poistion as the [Rating Game]'s champion, taken, by Giichi Asmodeus. Although, the bad thing about that was that Giichi Asmodeus didn't have enough time, the [Rating Game] was that day's night!! Thus, Giichi Asmodeus just went alone, with his [Queen], Ophis, with him.

Ophis' match was short. It wasn't that hard on her. She wasn't up against some God-Class opponents or something like that at all, and thus, she was able to just do it as if she did nothing. Although, on the other hand, Giichi Asmodeus, who should have had a rather hard time against seven [Pawn]'s promoted to [Queen], each one of them, just played around with them, as if their strongest attacks and utmost powers combinations were nothing more than a child's play.

On the end of Volume 4, Giichi Asmodeus was fighting Edward Schwartze, Miki Shino and Iri Shino, Shibata Kirino, and Mashiro Ha, who tried to stall him, and maybe also doing some damage to him, before he could get to where Belial is. Although, Giichi Asmodeus tried to "have fun", as he fought them, and that was because either way, they would never be able to win him, and either way, he would be able to defeat them in a second.

At the very end of Volume 4, Edward Schwartze asks for permission to use his trump card, and tries to damage Giichi Asmodeus, thinking that maybe, with "that armor", he can do some damage, even if it's Giichi Asmodeus, the current champion of the [Rating Game] himself! Although, much to Edward Schwartze dismay, shortly after, Giich Asmodeus makes Edward Schwartze retire, making it one less opponent, and it was Giichi Asmodeus against Miki Shino and Iri Shino, Shibata Kirino, and Mashiro Ha.

Now, what will happen? Will Giichi lose his position as the current champion of the [Rating Game]? Will Giichi win as he always does? Will Giichi, by any chance lose against some trump card that is hidden by Belial? Will Giichi show us yet another secret? Now, everything will be revealed. It's just a matter of time until then...

Life 0: The Nightmare That I've Awoke From

——Unknown Place, Unknown Time, Unknown Details——

......What is this...? An unfimilar.........yet somewhat fimilar.........scene...

"—Yo." It was unknown, unrecognizable figure, talking to another unknown, unrecognizable figure, in an unknown, unrecognizable voice. "Oi, do you hear me?" The first unknown, unrecognizable figure continues to talk, but isn't heared.

"—Oi." A third unknown, unrecognizable figure, apears. It seems like these three unknown, unrecognizable figures, are some kind of friends. Who are they? Are they playing around or something? W-What are they doing...?! The third unknown, unrecognizable figure, then continues to talk. "Oi, are you listening to what — is saying??" A part of the sentence couldn't be heard......as if it was censored or something. "Oi, —, are you listening?!" Again, a part of the sentence, as if it was censored or something along the lines......couldn't be heard...

"—Hmm...?" The second unknown, unrecognizable figure, finally talks. "Sorry. I was sleepy." The second unknown, unrecognizable figure, was apologizing, while scratching the back of his head. ".........eh?" The second unknown, unrecognizable figure, suddenly becomes seemingly somewhat both frightened and surprised. "How are you two here!?" The second unknown, unrecognizable figure, suddenly gets freaked it. He lost it. He isn't sane at the moment. That's how it seems.

A moment of silence passes between the unknown, unrecognizable three figures.........

"—What are you talking about?" The first unknown, unrecognizable figure is full of doubts. "I mean, what's weird about it, anyway?" Then, the first unknown, unrecognizable figure, seemingly smiles. "You said that as if we are dead or something like that." The first unknown, unrecognizable, then laughs a bit, in an unknown, unrecognizable voice.

"Yeah. Just what he said." The third unknown, unrecognizable figure, just agreed with what the first unknown, unrecognizable figure, said. The third unknown, unrecognizable figure, then laughs a bit, in an unknown, unrecognizable voice, and the first unknown, unrecognizable figure, just as well, laughs a bit, with the third unknown, unrecognizable figure, also, in an unknown, unrecognizable voice.

"—Stop that." The second unknown, unrecognizable figure, then is making a serious look. "I said, stop that." A moment of silence passes, and it seems as if the first unknown, unrecognizable figure, and the third unknown, unrecognizable figure, listened to the second unknown, unrecognizable figure, but shortly after, the first unknown, unrecognizable figure, and the third unknown, unrecognizable figure, then just return to doing the same thing they did just a moment ago, lauging. "—If you continue doing that anymore......" The second unknown, unrecognizable figure then seemingly gets up from his assumed "sit", ".........you'll pay for it." The second unknown, unrecognizable figure, then seemingly is making a frightening look on his eyes.

—Then, everything turned darker and darker, until everything eventually bacame black. It was completely black. Then, everything turned back, a bit by a bit, brighter and brighter, and you could see there something you could assume that it's a room. And there, you can see unrelated, another, two, unknown, unrecognizable figures.

A moment of silence passes then between the first unknown, unrecognizable figure, to the second unknown, unrecognizable figure......

"—Why did you make me see this nightmare?" The first unknown, unrecognizable figure, said that with a serious look on his eyes, seemingly. "—Do you have a death wish or something of the sort?" The first unknown, unrecognizable figure, then walks, slowly, towards the second unknown, unrecognizable figure.

"—Not at all." The second unknown, unrecognizable figure, then seemingly, just smiles at the seemingly frightening figure, who is no other than the first unknown, unrecognizable figure. Yet another moment of silence passes between the first unknown, unrecognizable figure, and the second unknown, unrecognizable figure. "—If I didn't make you see this dream......" The second unknown, unrecognizable figure, then opens the assumed door of the assumed room, ".........you'd be stuck here all the time. You know, you need to redo things, or else..."

What happens next is the second unknown, unrecognizable figure, just closing the assumed door of the assumed room, without completing the sentence he started to say, and didn't finish saying.

—!

There was a boom. You could see then the first unknown, unrecognizable figure, punching the assumed wall of the assumed room, as well as seemingly making a hole in the assumed wall of the assumed room. The first unknown, unrecognizable figure, then seemingly starts to calm down, a bit by a bit, slowly, a little bit every moment that passes, slowly...

"—Right..." The first unknown, unrecognizable figure, then starts looking depressed. "I have to try harder and harder......" The first unknown, unrecognizable figure, then looks up, ".........for their sake......" The first unknown, unrecognizable figure, then looks immediately down. "—No. It's for my sake, and for my sake alone. It's for my selfishness, and for my selfishness alone. It's for me, and for me alone...!" After the first unknown, unrecognizable figure, finished saying that, he smiled a bit. The first unknown, unrecognizable figure, then opens the assumed door of the assumed room, and gets out of the assumed room, and then closes the assumed door of the assumed room. And then, after all that, the first unknown, unrecognizable figure, then, once yet again, is seemingly depressed...

Life 1: Fivesome Fight

Part 1

{Belial-sama's one [Rook], Edward Schwartze, retired!!}

Giichi then makes a grin. Even though it's seemingly not really according his will, everything goes to him so smoothly, as if everything is going "according to plan". It's just frightenening......Giichi's capability, that is. Giichi then says:

"Okay then. It's only you three that I need to take down right now." Giichi then holds Sword. "Well..." He then walks towards them. "They" are Belial's [Bishop], Shibata Kirino, Belial's male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino, and last but not least, Belial's [Queen], Mashiro Ha. Giichi is up against this foursome, if he is willing to get to where Belial is. Giichi then continues speaking, "......you'd better use your trump cards, or else I'll..." Giichi then swings Sword and hits Shibata Kirino. ".........just like that, defeat you, before you'll manage to do anything." Giichi then makes a very serious face, with an emotionless look on his eyes.

—Slash!

As Giichi swung Sword and hit Shibata Kirino, she got seriously hurt, very badly, and let out a sound [...Kuh—!], and just like that, fell to the ground. Although, a mere moment later, she got up, even though it was because Mashiro Ha healed her.

"—Here I come...!" As Giichi said that, he just jumped off and in an instant, before any of the foursome against Giichi could sense him, see him, smell him, hear him, or anything else along the lines, Giichi already reached to them and punched Shibata Kirino, who just got hit. "Can't you do any better than this!?" Giichi then, right away, swings Sword.

—Slash!

Right after Giichi swung Sword, he hit Shibata Kirino once yet again. Seemingly, she has a lot endurance, despite being a [Bishop]. Although, Giichi is only swinging Sword, and doesn't even use his special abilities, and doesn't bother to use Lightning Judgment, and this is probably because of a simple reason, and it's that he doesn't think of them so much highly.

Giichi then continues speaking, and says:

"Do you really think that you can do anything without using your trump cards!?" Giichi is trying to persuade the foursome fighting him to use their trump cards. He then continues and says. "I'll give you a short time to use your trump cards. If..." He walks towards Shibata Kirino, who isn't in any kind of state to fight, "......by then, you won't use your trump cards......" Giichi then holds Shibata Kirino, and chokes her as he is continuing and saying, ".........then I'll show no mercy........." Giichi then kicks Shibata Kirino, while holding her, and he then throws her down.

"—Tsk...!" Mashiro Ha then rushes to Shibata Kirino's aid. "It's frustrating, but..." Mashiro Ha then heals Shibata Kirino who's aid she came to. Mashiro Ha then continues and says, "......we won't have any chance against Asmodeus-dono......" Mashiro Ha then makes a serious look on her face as she continues speaking and says, ".........unless we'll use our trump cards, that is. So......let's do it, everyone!!"

"—3......2.........1......and......your time's up." Giichi then walks towards the foursome fighting him, after finishing couting. "Ready or not......here I come...!" Giichi then runs in a God-like speed, and punches Mashiro Ha. Right then, Giichi swings Sword and hits the male [Knight] twins duo. Afterwards, Giichi just disappears, seemingly though, and quickly punches Shibata Kirino, who's still not in state to fight or whatsover. Although, Giichi isn't showing any sign of mercy, just like he said he would.

"—Amusing." Giichi replies with simple comments, meaning he's ready to "take care of them", and "they" are the foursome fighting against him, and "he" is Giichi. "—But......is this it?" Giichi looks down on Mashiro Ha. Giichi then continues and says. "I expected much more than that. But......" He then walks towards Shibata Kirino, "......seems like you really aren't anything that special." Giichi then holds Shibata Kirino and points Sword at her direction.

"—Kuh...!" Shibata Kirino's frustration is obvious, and totally understandable. She then continues and says. "Mashiro-san, are we..." And then, tears fall out of Shibata Kirino's eyes, "......are we going to be defeated like than......without being able to do anything......?" She then screams out and tries to get herself out of Giichi's hands, or rather, hold.

Giichi then swings Sword and hits all of the foursome against him excluding Shibata Kirino, meaning Giichi hit the threesome including Mashiro Ha, and the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino. Although, Giichi then suddenly seems disappointed, as he expected to some good fight, but what he got was nothing like that at all.

"—What a disappointment..." Giichi then stabs Shibata Kirino, who Giichi is holding at the moment. He then continues and says, "......and here I thought I would have a need to use even Lightning Judgment.........or maybe, even Lightning Judgment's [Breakdown], but..." He then stops for a moment, and then continues and says, ".........it seems like there's no need for that, no need at all." Giichi then takes Sword out of the one who he stabbed just a moment ago, Shibata Kirino.

Shibata Kirino then lets out a voice [...Ahhh...] and spits out blood and closes her eyes like that. Although, just a moment before there is the announcement of her retiring, she then says something, although, she can't be heard, but it's probably something like [......Mashiro-san......you know what......to do, don't you.........?], and then she makes a smile.

—Then, some announcement is heard, just a moment after Shibata Kirino let out a voice, spat blood, said what she said, and made a smile. Right after all of that, the announcement was. It's already obvious what the announcement is. It's the announcer announcing that Shibata Kirino retired, that's the announcement that is being heard at the moment.

{Belial-sama's one [Bishop], Shibata Kirino, retired!!}

Part 2

Right after Giichi swung Sword and hit all of the foursome against him exluding Shibata Kirino, who he held at the moment, making it into not a foursome, but threesome, including Mashiro Ha, and the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino, right after that, he got disappionted, and "he" is Giichi. And then, Giichi stabbed Shibata Kirino with Sword, and a few moments later, Giichi took Sword out of Shibata Kirino, and then Shibata Kirino let out a voice, said something to Mashiro Ha, probably, and then she made a smile, and then, finally, there was the thing that would obviously be, the announcement that announced that Shibata Kirino retired.

{Belial-sama's one [Bishop], Shibata Kirino, retired!!}

"Ahh... That was way too easy...", Giichi thinks to himself. He then turns his look to the remaining threesome's direction. "Let's see what this threesome that remaind......let's see what they have...", Giichi thinks to himself. He then makes a grin, and he then runs in a God-like speed, making it seem as if he diappeared, in the direction of none other than Mashiro Ha.

—!

Giichi then appears, right behind Mashiro Ha, and kicks her, while still wearing the grin, nonetheless. Mashiro Ha reacts pretty fast, despite being very surprised, and tries to block Giichi's kick with her hand. Mashiro Ha doesn't have even a little bit of strength to resist to Giichi, although. Thus, Mashiro Ha gets blown and thrown away. Then—!

Boom!!

Mashiro Ha hits what beneath her, which is the mountain's "floor", simply saying. She tries to get up, but ends up failing to do so. Although, she heals herself, very quickly, without wavring at all, even for a second. But, even with that said, she knows that she cannot win against the one the foursome are fighting, Giichi, thus Mshiro Ha runs to a direction, whichi isn't in Giichi's way. That direction, is the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino, their direction.

"I will attack Asmodeus-dono from one direction," Mashiro Ha signs to the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino that she will attack Giichi from his right, "while Miki and Iri will attack from the other direction." Mashiro Ha then signs to the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino to attack from the other direction, which is Giichi's left. Mashiro Ha then says in a loud tone. "Got it?!" As of seeing the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino, agreeing, meaning they understood, Mashiro Ha goes towards their direction.

Seeing this, Giichi then thinks to himself. "So, they are planning on doing a pincer attack, huh...". Giichi then walks towards them slowly. "Go ahead and try then.", Giichi thinks to himself, making a grin. "I'd like to see you forcing me to use something more advance than just Sword's slashes, without even using Sword's basic abilities, such as even Basic Slash, which I've used even against those [Pawn]'s!!.", Giichi thinks to himself, after wiping his grin, just a moment before he goes smashing the threesome against him.

Giichi then tells the threesome who are fighting against him:

"Low-lives, now is the moment you'll realize who has the upper hand," Giichi then sets his legs to run, or rather, "jump", towards the threesome who are fighting against him, "between me and Belial-san, that is...!" Giichi then "takes off" towards the threesome who are fighting against him, running so fast, making it look as if Giichi just disappeared.

—!

Without them noticing, Giichi already is behind them, smiling. "They" are the threesome who are fighting against Giichi, who are Mashiro Ha, and no other than the famous for its good teamwork, duo, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino. Together, they, the three, are forming a threesome. They just turn around in surprise, astonished. They are way too shocked to even move from their current location, before getting kicked, or even moving their hands, or legs, to block Giichi's going-to-be kick, or even move some part of their body, in order to dodge Giichi's going-to-be kick. They are just standing there, feeling what true fear is. They are just standing there, surprised, seeing what true domination is.

—And Giichi is just there, smiling, or rather, making a grin, (while) belittling the threesome who are fighting against him—Mashiro Ha, and the famous duo, who are known as the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino.

Giichi then starts using more and more harsh, more and more rough, attacks, starting by commanding Sword to use his basic ability, known as "Basic Slash". And without hesitating a bit, without hesitating the least, without hesitating or wavring, the least, Giichi commands Sword to use his other ability, known as "Godly Slashes". That is, shortly after commanding Sword to use his basic ability, known as "Basic Slash".

"—Sword, Basic Slash." Giichi commands Sword to use his basic ability, known as "Basic Slash", just like that, and Sword is replying with his regular reply which is {Understood, Hyoudou-kun.} and after that {Basic Slash.}. Of course, as always, Sword's accuracy is head-on. Although the threesome fighting against Giichi have been damaged greatly but standing somehow, Giichi isn't waiting to anything, and finishes this fight, all by himself and his [Annihilation Gears]. Giichi then continues commanding Sword, commanding him to use his other ability, which is known as "Godly Slashes". "Sword, Godly Slashes." Giichi commands, and Sword replies simply with saying {Understood, Hyoudou-kun} and then he is announcing the attack {Godly Slashes!}. And of course, Sword's accuracy is just as amazing as always, being head-on.

It is then, that the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—decide to show what they are capable of. They are smiling at each other, and nod their faces, getting a full understanding of what each other is thinking, and agreeing to that. Giichi notices that and just waits for them, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—to become able, from capable, of doing something to Giichi, as little thing it may be. Seeing what's happening, Mashiro Ha tries to heal herself, and get a bit of a rest, after treating the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—their injuries, by healing them.

Then, two brave [Knight]'s come to claim "the right to be Giichi's opponent". Those two are none other than the famous duo, known better and known well, as the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino. They then call to Giichi, trying to make him pay attention to them, which will make it possible for them to fight against Giichi themselves, without him trying to hurt Mashiro Ha, as well. They, the two brave [Knight]'s, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—then put it to words, and say to Giichi:

"Asmodeus-dono, we'll be your opponents, from here on...!"

Part 3

The situation now is dire. Mashiro Ha isn't in situation to fight, she needs to rest a bit. Although, she hasn't reitred yet, becuase her injuries are not anything that fatal. On the other hand, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—got healed by Mashiro Ha and then they say they will be Giichi's opponents, in order to buy some time for Mashiro Ha to get her a bit of rest and then they would be able to fight against Giichi, with all of their power, with all of their strength, all the three of them, together.

"—Asmodeus-dono, we'll be your opponents, from here on...!"

Upon hearing the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—what they said, Giichi then makes a grin. He walks slowly towards the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—to show them that full power or not, either it means Giichi is at his full power, or not, or it means the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—are at their full power, or not, either way, it makes no difference. Giichi then tells to the male [Knight] twins duo—MIki Shino and Iri Shino—this:

"Have you really prepared enough to fight me...?" Giichi then just disappears from the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—from their eyesight range [W-Where is Asmodeus-dono!?]. Giichi then appears just behind them, but decides to see what'll happen if they, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—get separated from each other, so Giichi aims to Miki Shino with his kick, while they can't notice Giichi possibly, although... "—To think you noticed me on such a short alert..." Giichi says that because one of the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—Miki Shino, was supposed to get kicked, without even noticing, but he tried to block, with his hand, Giichi's kick, but this is not all at all. The surprising thing in all of this is that the other one from the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—Iri Shino, noticed it, as well, and tried to help Miki Shino to block Giichi's kick, with the sword Iri Shino held. Giichi then continues and says. "You sure are known for your teamwork......and that's sure isn't for nothing..." Giichi then finally manages to kick Miki Shino who's try to block Giichi's kick, failed. Then... Giichi tries to see what different with any of the threesome who are fighting against him, but...

"—What? Did you think we'd freak out or something?" Iri Shino, who didn't get kicked just now, says this to Giichi, with serious looking eyes. He then continues and says. "We are together for years..." He then gets into position to fight, with his sword, and continues and says, "......so don't think of us like that, because......" Iri Shino then "jumps" towards Giichi, in a God-like speed, even if Iri Shino's speed isn't anything to be compared to Giichi's God-like speed, but still... Iri Shino then continues and says, after "disappearing" and then "reappearing", near to Giichi, ".........it won't do........." Iri Shino then tries to get back at Giichi, as Iri Shino tries to kick Giichi, as well, but fails, so Iri Shino tries to get back at Giichi with Iri Shino's sword, and still fails, and then a moment of silence passes between Giichi to Iri Shino......... Iri Shino then continues, and says, ".........you know......Asmodeus-dono.........?" Although Iri Shino tries to act tough, he's breathing heavily.

Giichi then wipes off his grin. He walks slowly towards Iri Shino, who is pretty much near to Giichi, and then Giichi catches Iri Shino, and Giichi then chokes Iri Shino, as Giichi still is holding Iri Shino. Giichi then still, at the same time, while he holds and chokes Iri Shino, Giichi walks to Miki Shino's direction, and then, when Giichi reaches Miki Shino, Giichi then holds Miki Shino, and Giichi also then is choking Miki Shino. He, Giichi, does it in order to see what happens if both of the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—are in desperate, dire, situation, instead of separating them, because Giichi saw just a moment before, what is happening to the duo known as the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—when they get separated, and it was nothing special, it was nothing more than just a bit of fury from the one who stayed near to Giichi because he didn't get kicked. "The one who stayed near to Giichi because he didn't get kicked" is Iri Shino.

Giichi then says:

"I don't get you." Giichi looks at the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—in their eyes, with a serious look. Giichi then continues and says. "How do you think what you're doing is changing anything...?" Giichi then hardens his hold. He continues and says. "Don't you know that the only one who actually has a chance against me, from your peerage, is your [King], Belial, and even he has a slim chance." Giichi then drops down the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—and walks slowly towards Belial's [Queen], Mashiro Ha.

The male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—then tell Giichi, who's going towards Belial's [Queen], Mashiro Ha, they are, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—are, saying to Giichi this:

"Didn't you already get it?" They, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—then get up, while barely managing to. They, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—continue and say. "We thought you can read minds......can't you.........Asmodeus-dono.........?" They, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—then go in their fastest possible speed as they are now, which isn't anything like a God-like speed or anything close to that, because they aren't in state to do that at all. They, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—then continue and say. "Our main objective was to stall, you know..." They, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—are already near to Belial's [Queen], Mashiro Ha, who heals them, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—at the moment. And then they, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—smile.

—And Giichi is just there, near to the threesome who are fighting against him, who are Belial's [Queen]—Mashiro Ha—and the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—they are the threesome who are fighting against Giichi, who's just there, near to them, he's standing, just like that, and he breaks out on a laugh.

Giichi then tells the threesome who are fighting against him, who are Belial's [Queen]—Mashiro Ha—and the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—together, they are the threesome who are fighting against Giichi, and Giichi is now telling them something. This something that Giichi is telling them, the threesome who are fighting against him, Giichi is telling them this:

"Do you really think what you planned went well??" Giichi then just gets crazy from laughing too much, or so he seems. Giichi then continues and says. "Everything up until now wasn't anything special." Giichi then gets closer and closer to the threesome who are fighting against him. GIichi then continues and says. "I just wanted to let you two to have your way, and then, with this, you'll truly see who's truly the strong one here." Giichi then reaches to the threesome who are fighting against him.

Giichi then makes a frightening smile. His eyes aren't seen. Giichi then, just like this, swings Sword a little bit, and nothing happens, because he seemingly didn't want anything to just happen from this little swing, and then Giichi's eyes are seen, and the scene is getting cut, just like this. Exactly like this, just like this, the scene is just getting cut, at its middle—.

Life 2: The Final Fight; Giichi VS Belial — Duel!!

Part 1

Things up until now are very gloomy. That is, for Belial's peerage. All of Belial's [Pawn]'s have retired. Both of Belial's [Rook]'s have retired. Both of Belial's [Bishop]'s have retired. Giichi only has to beat Belial's [Queen]—Mashiro Ha, and the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino, that threesome together. They and, Belial himself. Only those four, are those who Giichi needs to defeat, or rather, make them retire. Much to Belial's dismay, everything in this fight is going very much to Giichi's favor.

A moment ago, a few things happened.

Belial's [Queen]—Mashiro Ha—got injured fataly, and wasn't in state to fight agaisnt Giichi, so the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—fought against Giichi in order to stall, untill Belial's [Queen]—Mashiro Ha—would get healed, and they did it. Or so it seemed. Giichi revealed that he let them have their way, and then, with that, they'll truly be able to see who's truly the strong one.

And right then, just a single moment after all that, Giichi reaches to the threesome who are fighting against him, he made a frightening smile, with his eyes being unseen, and then just like that he swung Sword a little bit and nothing happened because he seemingly didn't want anything to just happen from a little swing, and then his eyes were being seen.

—And then, just like that, the scene got cut. Exactly like that, just like that, the scene has just got cut at its middle, and what happened after that was... Nothing just yet. It's about to happen. It will happen right now!

Giichi then says:

"Now, it's time for you to retire, if you get me..." Giichi then makes a serious look. "Want it or not......" Giichi then holds Mashiro Ha—Belial's [Queen]. Giichi then continues and says, ".........you'll retire in a moment........." Giichi then throws Belial's [Queen]—Mashiro Ha, somewhat not so far away, and turns at that moment to the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—their direction.

Giichi then begins to chant something...

O Lighting, O! Judge and kill! Fudge and make them feel!

For all and every light! For you are the might!

Lightningify and signify! Give me the life of a [Lullaby]!

Enlighten me and realize! Frighten he who ties!

{Lightning Judgment - Breakdown!!}

Giichi then glows in light for a second and then it stops, Giichi isn't covered by any sort of light or glow as of now. Then, lots of lightnings strike around everywhere. As this is happening, Giichi then breaks out on a laugh. Electric waves run through Sword's armor. Judging by its looks, it is safe to assume that Lightning Judgment has no form, or so it seems for now.

"—Lightning Judgment, Divine Retribution."

{Ara, ara... Ufufufu... Understood.}

{Divine Retribution.}

Then, a gigantic lightning apears. That is, a gigantic lightning that takes the form of a dragon. At first glance, it would seem otherwise, but it's a gigantic lightning that takes the form of a dragon, and nothing else. Although, you could say it's a gigantic dradon-formed lightning, or maybe a gigantic dragon-shaped lightning.

—The gigantic dragon-formed lightning then spits lightning out of its mouth. The lightning hits the threesome who are fighting against Giichi, of course, just like Sword Gear, head-on. Then, just as this lightning that the gigantic dragon-formed lightning spat—hit the threesome who are fighting against Giichi, they were almost defeated, meaning you could almost hear the announcement of them retiring, which means they still haven't been defeated, which means the still haven't retired, just as well.

Giichi then commands Lightning Judgment to use a furthermore, much stronger, attack, known as Night of Light. Giichi commands the Top-Class Annihilation Gear—the [Rephaite]—this way, with these words:

"Lightning Judgment, you already know what to do." Giichi then stops for a moment, and a moment of silence passes. "...Lightning Judgment, Night of Light!" Giichi screams the name of the attack known as Night of Light.

{Ara, ara... Ufufufu... Understood.}

{Night of Light!}

The sky then get covered by some black object. It is probably Lightning Judgment. Its meaning is obvious. It means that there's nothing else to do. That is, the threesome who are fighting Giichi are doomed. Giichi can defeat them any time, any second he wants, and this can be very close, and this might be surprisingly pretty close, and actually, this is seemingly pretty close, and this means the threesome who are fighting against Giichi are going to get beaten to a pulp, without Giichi even breaking the least of a sweat.

"—Lightning Judgment, you may finish them off right now." Giichi doesn't waste any second. Giichi continues and says. "No... Finish them off, right now if possible, please." Giichi then makes a grin. Giichi is then continuing and says. "Strike at them, okay?" Giichi wipes his grin off his face, or rather, look.

{Ara, ara... Ufufufu... Understood.}

Seemingly, Lightning Judgment replies the same thing as always. Giichi's strength is always surprising anew, every time, even though he uses the same things, and maybe shows a new thing or another from time to time, despite still surprising with his overwhelming power, every time, anew, just like that, without even requiring a moment to break a sweat, or even a moment to break the least of a sweat, just like that, meaning he doesn't even tries.

It is at this moment, that Lightning Judgment's Lightning strikes that have been issued with Light of Night, actually strike the threesome who are fighting against Giichi. They just start to disappear, just like that. And this probably means one single simple thing, and this is: They have been defeated, meaning they have retired.

Then, there was the announcement, announcing that Belial's [Queen]—Mashiro Ha—and the male [Knight] twins—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—or in other words, Belial's two [Knight]'s—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—an announcement, announcing that these three have retired, due to a simple thing, which is them being defeated by Giichi.

{Belial-sama's [Queen], Mashiro Ha, and Belial-sama's two [Knight]'s, Miki Shino and Iri Shino, retired!!}

Part 2

After a very long fight, Giichi won the battle. Giichi was against Belial's whole peerage, almost, exception made for Belial's strongest [Pawn]—Marihara D'ark, Belial's weak [Rook]—J'anne Toshi, and Belial's strong [Bishop]—Yanderu Koujiro. Those three are the threesome who have fought against Giichi's [Queen]—Ophis.

Giichi himself, have fought against the rest of Belial's peerage, up until now. The rest of Belial's peerage is seven [Pawn]'s and a [Rook] and a [Bishop] and two [Knight]'s and a [Queen]. As for their names, Belial's seven [Pawn]'s' names are:

Shinji Toudou, a male, who is rankes as top 15 strontest [Pawn] out of all of the [Pawn]'s. He and Adolf Weiss, also a male, who is ranked as top 5 strongest [Pawn] out of all of the [Pawn]'s. And adding to them, Lucy Maria, a female, who is ranked as top 10 strongest [Pawn] out of all of the [Pawn]'s. In addition to all of it, Harry Livan, a male, who is rankes as top 22 strongest [Pawn] out of all of the [Pawn]'s, and also, there's Maya Abbadon, a female, who is ranked as top 18 strongest [Pawn] out of all of the [Pawn]'s. Also, there's Eli Phoenix, a female, who is ranked as top 12 strongest [Pawn] out of all of the [Pawn]'s. And last but not least, Shin Takami, a male, who is ranked as top 7 strongest [Pawn] out of all of the [Pawn]'s.

Those seven [Pawn]'s are the seven [Pawn]'s who have fought against Giichi, all promoted to [Queen]. Although, Giichi just wiped them, as if they were nothing, without even breaking a sweat. —But, Giichi's fight wasn't over just yet when he defeated all of the seven [Pawn]'s, making them retire. Giichi had to fight the four other who were fighting against him. Their names are:

Edward Schwartze, Belial's strong [Rook], a male, who is ranked as top 4 strongest [Rook] out of all of the [Rook]'s. Shibata Kirino, Belial's weak [Bishop], a female, who is ranked as top 5 strongest [Bishop] out of all of the [Bishop]'s. They and, Belial's two [Knight]'s, who are more known as the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—who are two males. Miki Shino is ranked as top 10 strongest [Knight] out of all of the [Knight]'s, and Iri Shino is ranked as top 5 strongest [Knight] out of all of the [Knight]'s. And also, last but not least, there's Mashiro Ha, Belial's [Queen], a female, who is ranked as top 2 strongest [Queen] out of all of the [Queen]'s.

Those five, that fivesome, have fought Giichi who came towards Belial, after defeating Belial's seven [Pawn]'s who were promoted to [Queen]. Although, the result of the fight was obvious. It was Giichi's complete victory, of course. Giichi didn't even bother to release anything special out of his strength, or rather, his Annihilation Gears, and even compared that fivesome to the [Pawn]'s sevensome.

With that said, Giichi did use Sword Gear's Breakdown, as well as Lightning Judgment's Breakdown, even though claiming to not be needing to use it at all, which is actually true. After all of that, when Giichi finally used Lightning Judgment's Breakdown, after making Belial's [Bishop]—Shibata Kirino—retire, after Giichi made Belial's [Rook]—Edward Schwartze—retire, after Giichi used Sword Gear's Breakdown, after all of that, Giichi used Lightning Judgment's Breakdown, and made the threesome who remained to fight against him, retire, with simple moves of the Annihilation Gear he was using, Lightning Judgment, such as Divine Retribution, and Night of Light, although being enchanced by Lightning Judgment's Breakdown.

After all of that happened, just like that, there was an announcement, announcing that the threesome who are fighting against Giichi, they have retired. The threesome is of three servants of Belial, namely, Belial's [Queen]—Mashiro Ha—and Belial's two [Knight]'s—who are well known as the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—the three together are the threesome who have fought against Giichi.

{Belial-sama's [Queen], Mashiro Ha, and Belial-sama's two [Knight]'s, Miki Shino and Iri Shino, retired!!}

At that moment it is, that Giichi walks toward Belial's location, which is somewhat pretty much very far away from where Giichi is right now, at the moment. Although, Giichi, just like that, rushes in a God-like, just like he did a lot of times already, and makes it seem as if he, Giichi, just disappears. And then, as a few moments pass, or rather, as a few seconds pass, or rather, maybe even as a few milliseconds pass, it is then, that Giichi just "reappears out of nowhere", near to Belial, or rather, behind Belial, who immediately gets up from his chair, out of a surprise. In response to Belial's reaction, Giichi just smiles. That is, making a freaking smile.

"—Now, now..." Giichi is speaking to Belial with a very relaxed tone. Giichi then continues and says. "Don't you think you are being a bit too much unfriendly......Belial-san...?" Giichi then appears beneath Belial's head, making a freak's smile. Belial's reaction to Giichi being beneath his head, while making a freak's smile, is, of course, just freaking out, just like he did when Giichi "reappeared out of nowhere" behind him, and made a freaking smile. Giichi is continuing and saying. "You are so cold, Belial-san~" Giichi said it with an energetic tone, making it freaking, maybe even more then his freak's smile.

In response to Giichi's action, Belial says the following:

"Asmodeus-dono... You should take this more seriously. Or else..." Belial pauses for a second, and Giichi expresses his doubts [Or else...? What would you do...??]. After a moment of silence passes, Belial continues and says, "......I'll have to use my actual plan......" Belial then pauses for a second, and swallows his saliva. A moment of silence passes. Belial is then continuing and is saying, ".........the plan that I came up with in order to defeat you......the plan that can destroy......even you.........Asmodeus-dono......!!" Belial then takes a bit of distance, for an unknown reason.

In response to Belial, and in resoponse to his actions, and reactions, Giichi tells him:

"Do you think that I actually didn't know your plan......" Giichi then shortens the distance between him to Belial. A moment of silence passes. Giichi then continues and says, ".........Belial-san.........?" Giichi then makes a very serious look, while Belial is making a very frightened look. Although, this much is to be expected. Belial thought that his plan was good enough to defeat even Giichi, but much to Belial's dismay, it is very likely, that Giichi knew Belial's plan all along, and just wanted to see with both of his eyes, whether or not Belial's plan can really actually do something, most little thing, to him.

—But... What is it, that plan of Belial, that Belial thought to himself, that that plan would be actually able to do anything to Giichi, and also, not to mention, especially, actually defeating Giichi. What is that plan that Belial came up with?? What could that plan be? What could that plan consist? What could that plan, possibly, include?

Part 3

Up until now, what happened isn't all that much. Ophis won in her battle, and Giichi is in his way to his victory. Giichi fought the seven [Pawn]'s that Belial sent against him, and defeated them quickly and smoothly. Then, after Giichi won against the seven [Pawn]'s that Belial has sent against him, the male [Knight] twins duo—Miki Shino and Iri Shino—were ordered by Belial to stop Giichi from reaching to the threesome who are to stop Giichi from advancing and reaching to where Belial is.

Although that, Giichi just rushed, in a God-like speed, to where Belial was, and there was also the threesome who were guarding the location from Giichi, in case he'll get there, or in other words, in case Giichi will get there, they are there to stall him, or even stop him, if possible, and also, do some damage to Giichi, while they keep him in the same place, leaving Belial, or even Belial's location, out of Giichi's reach. Then, after Giichi reached to the location of Belial, which was guarded by the mentioned threesome, Giichi just made the battle, from "Two VS One", to "Five VS One", and won it in a magnificent way, with ease, atop of that.

Then, after all of the events mentioned above, while amid Giichi used [Pressure] and [Power of Annihilation] and Sword Gear and Sword Gear's Breakdown and Lightning Judgment and Lightning Judgment's Breakdown, after all of that, Giichi have finally reached to his final opponent of this [Rating Game], Belial—. Then, Belial reveals that he has a plan, which he'll use right now.

That plan that Belial came up with, and even went as far as claiming and saying that that plan is powerful and well-made enough to defeat even Giichi.........What on Earth......could that plan be...?? Now, everything is set and is going to be revealed!! Right now! Belial's plan, what it is, what it contents, what it includs, whatever its target is.........everything is going to be revealed, right now!!

Belial then says:

"Asmodeus-dono... You should take this more seriously. Or else......I'll have to use my actual plan.........the plan that I came up with in order to defeat you......the plan that can destroy.........even you......Asmodeus-dono......!!"

Then, a sudden, frightening response, comes from Giichi:

"—Do you think that I actually didn't know about your plan.........Belial-san.........?"

Lightnings strike through Giichi's armor, as he makes a grin, with a very devilish, evil smile, a smile that says, that he knew Belial's plan all along, and played along with Belial's plan, only to crush it to little pieces, in front of Belial's eyes. Such a devilish, evil smile, Giichi makes, as he also makes a grin, at the same time he makes that smile.

Giichi then says:

"You know..." Giichi then wipes his grin off his face, as he continues and says, "......your powers aren't capable of working miracles." Giichi is then walking towards Belial, slowly, and finally closing the distance between the two, after a moment of a pause, a moment of a silence, Giichi continues and says. "......If you cannot do anything to me at all, even without my powers, then......" Giichi then suddenly holds Belial! Giichi is then continuing and saying, ".........nothing'll change, whether I'll have my powers or not, the outcome will be the same." Giichi then throws down Belial who Giichi has been holding up until a moment ago. "—The winner, nontheless, will be no other than I." Giichi then, once yet again, makes a frightening look on his face.

Then, Belial replies to Giichi, who has been belittling him just up until a moment ago, saying that with his powers and without his powers, the outcome will stay the same, or in other words, Giichi will be the one who'll come out in a victory. Belial, who has been thrown down just now, a moment ago, reveals his plan, and says:

"Asmodeus-dono..." Belial then is half getting up, meaning he kind of sits. He then continues, "......well......I'll reveal my plan to you......even though you already knew it long ago......" Belial then pauses for a moment. A moment of silence then passes. Belial is then continuing and he is then saying. "......My plan was to drag the battle with you, making you use your powers, making it so that I'll know how they work, and then I'll be able to render them [Worthless] with my Clan's special ability, [Worthless]." Belial then stops for a moment, and then, after a moment of silence passes between them, Belial then continues and says, ".........such as [Pressure], and [Power of Annihilation], and [Sword of Annihilation], and also even its [Breakdown], and also, just as well, [Lightning of the Apocalypse], and even its [Breakdown], too." Belial then pauses for a moment, and after a short moment of silence, he then continues, saying. "...Although......it was a very saddening, the fact that you didn't use [Doctor of the Dead] or its [Breakdown]......" Belial then completely gets up.

"—Well then..." Giichi then makes a grin, once yet again, just a moment after he just wiped his grin off his face, just a moment after he made a very frightening look on his face. Giichi then continues and says, "......let's start the final battle of this [Rating Game]......" Giichi then stops for a moment, takes a breathe, a deep one, gets into position to fight against Belial, and then he continues and says, ".........the [Rating Game] that will determine who is the true champion of the [Rating Game].........its final battle......let's settle this......once and for all.........shall we, or is it that we shan't......Belial-san......?" Giichi is with a freaking look on his face, as he is saying all of the things that he is saying right now.

Then, suddenly, Belial, takes a great distance from Giichi, for some reason, which is, probably, going to be revealed in a moment, and then, after he, Belial, takes a great distance from him, Giichi, for some reason, unknown reason, which is probably going to be revealed, or in other words, going to be explained, in a moment, after this, he, Belial, says:

"Well, of course......we shall!" Belial then pauses for a moment, and then, after a moment of silence has passed between him, Belial, to him, Giichi, he, Belial, then is continuing and says. "...This battle, this very battle......will determine who's the real champion......of the [Rating Game].........and who's worthy for the title.........[Champion]......!!" Belial then musters a lot of magic, for some unknown reason. "—Well then, I hope you are ready......Asmodeus-dono......because I am not going to wait to you all the day......" Belial then pauses for a moment, and after a little bit of silence, he then continues, saying, ".........you know.........!!!!!!!!!" Belial shouts as he unleashes a very strong offensive magic, or in other words, a very powerful attack, which is, obviously, directed towards Giichi's direction...!

DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!!!

Although, despite the fact that Belial has cast a very powerful attack, and directed it towards him, Giichi is showing no signs of dodging, or even moving from his location, at all. And even more than that, despite all of what is happening right now, Giichi isn't surprised the least, and makes a bored look as he faces that attack, as if he knew all along, that it would come to this single attack, and Giichi then makes a face that says "is that all??" and it's no long before Belial's attack would hit Giichi, but still, Giichi hasn't been showing any signs of dodging or even simply moving from his current location, nor is Giichi showing any signs of dodging or even simply moving from his current location, probably meaning that Giichi is thinking of taking Belial's attack head-on. At that moment, the moment right before Belial's attack hit Giichi, Giichi's grin, or rather, devilish, frightening smile, could be seen.

Boom!!

Then—!

Life 3: Champion

Part 1

Up until now, the battle went, seemingly, as Giichi planned, but proved to be that Giichi went along with Belial's plan to defeat him, just to show to Belial that he, Giichi, is the one who is the supreme one, the real and actual, [Champion]. Although, it is then, that Belial reveals his plan to defeat Giichi, which Giichi went along with. That plan was to drag the battle against Giichi, making him using his powers. Powers, such as the following:

[Pressure], [Power of Destruction], [Sword Gear], [Sword Gear]'s [Breakdown], [Sword Gear]'s abilities that are enchanced by his [Breakdown], [Lightning Judgment], [Lightning Judgment]'s [Breakdown], [Lightning Judgment]'s abilities that are enchanced by her [Breakdown]. Although, Belial expected Giichi to also use [Friendly Healer], or its assumed to be [Breakdown]. Belial's plan was to drag the battle against Giichi not to make him wear himself out, but rather for something else. That is, so that Belial himself, would understand Giichi's powers, how they work, and so, he would be able to use his Clan's power against Giichi, that is, [Worthless], meaning Belial would be able to render Giichi's powers as [Worthless].

After revealing his plan to Giichi, he, Belial, then, suddenly, out of the blue, musters a lot of magic, and shouts something as he unleashes his offensive magic, or in other words, as he releases his attack. Although all of that, Giichi isn't surprised or whatsover, at all, and is, rather than that, disappionted, seeing Belial's attack is only so much, and not something as grand as he thought, making a disappointed face, that seems as if he is telling to Belial "is that all??" making it seem like Giichi is really disappionted. Long story short, Giichi expected to much from Belial. Much more than what he saw that Belial is able of, or even what he saw that Belial is capable of.

Boom!!

Then—!

After the great explosion hit Giichi, Giichi could still be seen, as if nothing happened to him. No... It's not "as if", it is this way. Giichi just stood there, without anything happening to him, or rather, without being damaged at all. It is then, that Giichi shortens the distance between himself, Giichi, to him, Belial, once yet again.

Giichi then says:

"Is that all??" Giichi shortnes the distance himself to Belial. He, Giichi, then continues and says. "I expected much more than only that, you know, Belial-san. I thought you'd be much more fitting to be the [Rating Game]'s [Champion], you know..." Giichi is saying all of this while he is wearing a disappionted look on his face. "—If that is all that you can do, then..." Giichi then pauses for a moment, and just like this, a moment of silence passes, a short moment of silence passes, and then Giichi is continuing, saying, "......the outcome of the [Rating Game] would be boring, as it would too much expectable, because I would be the one who'll win, without even trying at all. Such a [Rating Game]... That would be boring as hell..." Giichi then appears, suddenly, out of the blue, behind Belial, while wearing a freak's smile.

Seeing this, Belial freaks out, just like he did before, which isn't surprising at all. Although, Giichi still is wearing that freak's smile, which is a bit of surprising. Belial then, on the other hand, while wearing a serious look on his face, on his eyes, on him as a whole, he bites his tongue [Tsk...!] and thinks a bit, and then, his idea comes to him.

"How did I forget such a thing...", Belial thinks to himself. Belial then lets out a little laugh, and a small grin, as well, wiping his serious look off his eyes, wiping his serious look off his face, wiping his serious look off himself as a whole. "I could just do as I planned, instead of testing his power and only then using my ability!", Belial thinks to himself.

Belial then says:

"Asmodeus-dono," Belial takes a step forward, and continues and says, "I thought that I'll test your power and only after you've proved yourself worthy, I'll use my ability to render your powers [Worthless], but..." Belial takes another step forward and continues, saying, "......things now have changed..." Belial stops moving. Belial then continues and says. "......Now......you have already proved yourself worthy, fighting almost all of my peerage, all by yourself." Belial closes his eyes. He, Belial, then continues and says. "...So I'll just use my abilities right now...!" And then Belial suddenly stops. "—Or so I would like to say, but I still didn't really get a hold of your [Annihilation Gear]'s, so..." Belial opens his eyes and continues and says, "......how about you'll go all-out, just against me, just to win this battle quickly?" Belial then wipes his grin off his face, off himself as a whole, and wears suddenly a rather serious look on himself as a whole.

Giichi then replies to Belial:

"Well..." Giichi then musters a lot of magic power, takes a deep breathe, and then continues and says, "......don't blame me if you get hurt too much and will never want to participate in a [Rating Game] after this one......!!" Giichi then unleashes a very powerful [Pressure], and a very much powerful [Power of Annihilation], saying the following. "1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Ton [Pressure].........!!!!!! [Power of Annihilation].........!!!!!!!!!"

DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!!!!!!

Then, a gigantic red ball comes out, together with a shapeless thing, towards Belial. The gigantic red ball is [Power of Annihilation]. It reaches to Belial, its target, transforms into a very small ball, resizes itself, and then chages its shape to Belial's. And then, after being adjusted, by itself, enough, it strikes its target, being Belial this time. The shapeless thing, which seems as if it's the air itself, is [Pressure]. It just hits its target, being Belial this time, and damages him a lot.

Giichi then makes a grin and says the following:

"[Sword], [Basic Slash]. [Sword], [Godly Slashes]." And then. finally, Giichi says the following while wearing an amused look on his face. "[Lightning Judgment], [Divine Retribution]. [Lightning Judgment], [Night of Light]." Giichi then breaks out on a laugh and places both of his hands on his face to keep himself sane.

Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—!

Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—!

Then, a lot of slashes, just like that, hit Belial, who screams as they hit him, because they are very strong, as it is [Sword Gear] who is making these slashes, or rather, in other words, unleashing, or releasing, these slashes, making them rather strong. But, this is not all. There's another thing besides than that. It's [Lightning Judgment]. She releases a lot of lightnings, to strike Belial, as she has been commanded by Giichi, while being also commanded to cover the sky, using [Night of Light].

"—Belial-san..." Giichi looks at Belial with a belittling look, as he continues and says, "......don't think this is already over......" Giichi pauses for a moment. That is, a pretty long moment. After a pretty long moment of silence passes, Giichi then continues and says. ".........This is only the beginning. Let's do our best, fighting each other for the title of being the [Champion] of the [Rating Game].........!!" Giichi then makes a grin, and laughs a bit.

Part 2

Screaming out of extreme pain, Belial is trying to keep himself alive, without dying or retiring from the [Rating Game]. Belial is also trying to keep himself sane. This pain is way too much for Belial to bear. But—Giichi tells him then, that he isn't done with it or whatsover, not at all. Belial tries to analyze. That is, Giichi's powers, and Giichi's [Annihilation Gear]'s, as well as that.

Giichi's powers and Giichi's [Annihilation Gear]'s, too, namely, [Pressure], [Power of Annihilation], [Sword Gear], [Lightning Judgment], and [Friendly Healer]. [Sword Gear] has moves and abilities of his own, such as [Basic Slash], or [Godly Slashes], or [Breakown], an ability that all of the [Annihilation Gear]'s have, although [Friendly Healer] isn't just yet shown to have. [Lightning Judgment] has moves and abilities of her own, such as [Divine Retribution], or [Night of Light], or [Breakdown], as said before.

"—Belial-san.........don't think this is already over........." Giichi pauses for a pretty long moment, and then, after that pretty long moment of silence passes, Giichi then continues and says. ".........This is only the beginning. Let's do our best, fighting each other for the title of being the [Champion] of the [Rating Game].........!!" Giichi then makes a grin, and laughs a bit.

Giichi begins to "submit to his sadistic side", you could say. That is, in other words, Giichi begins to finally enjoy this battle, Giichi finally starts to enjoy from this fight. Belial, on the other hand......is trying his best to keep himself alive, not dead or defeated, so he wouldn't retire from the [Rating Game] already, just yet. Belial is also trying his best to keep himself sane, so he would be able to analyze Giichi's powers and Giichi's [Annihilation Gear]'s, as well as that, in time.

Belial then says:

"......This is pretty harsh......" Belial spits blood out of his mouth [.........kuh—!], and thus pauses for a moment, a long moment. And then, after a long moment of silence passes, Belial continues and says. ".........I've got a bit of hold of all of this...... I've managed to understand a few of your powers, such as [Pressure], and such as [Power of Annihilation]." Belial then gets up, and continues and says. "But......I have not, just yet, have come to understand your [Annihilation Gear]'s......so......could you help me a bit here...?" Belial laughs a bit.

Belial seems to be pretty tough, standing after getting hit by such strong attacks... Although, nevertheless, Giichi didn't unleash anything too much of his power, and Belial is already about to lose... Giichi sure is strong, but......it is then, that Belial smiles a bit, or rather, in other words, makes a little grin. What happens next is...!

"—[Worthless]." Belial says it with a smile. Belial then repeats, and says it once again. "[Worthless]." Belial then says. "I've just now, rendered that [Pressure] ability of yours as [Worthless]. And I've just now, rendered that [Power of Annihilation] ability of yours as [Worthless], just as well." Belial then makes a serious look on his face, and continues and says. "[Worthless], [Worthless], [Worthless], [Worthless]." Belial then explains. "I've just now rendered that [Basic Slash] ability of that [Sword of Annihilation] of yours, as [Worthless], just as well. And the list goes on. I've also rendered that [Godly Slashes] ability of that [Sword of Annihilation] of yours, as [Worthless]. Although that's it for the abilities that I've rendered as [Worthless] of that [Sword of Annihilation] of yours, the two other things are two abilities of that [Lightning of the Apocalypse]. That is, I've rendered that [Divine Retribution] ability of that [Lightning of the Apocalypse] of yours, as well as that [Night of Light] ability of that [Lightning of the Apocalypse] of yours." Belial, finishing explaining what happened, to Giichi, although Giichi already knew it all along, then takes a bit of distance from Giichi, once yet again.

Giichi then takes a deep breathe, and then rushes towards him, Belial, in a God-like speed, and he, Giichi, makes it seem as if he, Giichi, disappeared, as he, Giichi, ran in such a speed. He, Giichi, then "reappears", behind him, Belial, who gets freaked out, in response to it, once yet again, and then, he, Giichi, kicks him, Belial, down to the ground, making him, Belial, to lie down on the ground once yet again. He, Giichi, then swings [Sword] and hits him, Belial, successfully, and he, Giichi then makes a grin, or rather, in other words, a devilish, malicious smile.

Giichi then says:

"[Sword], [Yòu Dòu]."

{Understood, Hyoudou-kun.}

{[Yòu Dòu]!!}

Then......six swords appear, surrounding Belial. Those swords were unique, each one and one of them. Those six swords......looked, each one and one of them......somewhat similar to [Sword], and......somewhat different from [Sword]...... One of the swords' color is a combination of a normal blonde, dark blonde, and light blonde. Another sword's color is a combination of a normal grey, dark grey, and light grey. Anoter sword's color is a combination of a normal red, dark red, and light red. Another sword's color is the combination of white and black. Another sword's color is a combination of dark blonde, light red, and black. Another sword's color is a combination of dark grey, white, and dark red. The swords' height is between half a meter to three meters. Each sword is bigger than the pervious one in half a meter, making it so one is half a meter, and the next one is a meter, and the next one is a meter and half a meter, and the next one is two meters, and the next one is two meters and half a meter, and the next one is three meters. All of the swords' shape is about the same as [Sword]'s.

Then, appears someone who holds two of the swords, as the rest of the swords fall down to the ground. That "someone", is no other than [Sword]. His appearance is that of a white-skinned, tall, handsome man, in his mid-twenties. His height is about one-hundred-ninty-five centimeters. He has a long, silver-colored, hair. He is, as well, white-skinned, as mentioned. He smiles at the fallen Belial [Hello there~!], and then......four more arms come out of his back, and each "hand" takes a sword. [Sword] makes a grin, or rather, in other words, he, [Sword], wears......a very much devilish, a very, very much malicious, smile. [Sword] then swings the swords that he holds, towards his target, Belial, six times, each sword, and hits, six times out of six times of each swing of each sword, or in other words, he, [Sword], hits with each swing of each sword, his target, Belial, and Belial, who is getting hit, repeatedly, screams and shouts, in response [.........kuh—!], as he is trying to keep himself alive, as he is trying to keep himself sane, in order to be able to analyze [Sword], and then render him [Worthless].

Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—! Slash—!

Giichi then continues furthermore, and says:

"[Lightning Judgment], [Zhū Nǎi]."

{Ara, ara... Ufufufu... Understood.}

{[Zhū Nǎi]!!}

Then......as a lot of lightnings hit everywhere......a beautiful, young woman, appears. The young woman's appearance is that of a young, busty, tall, beautiful, white-skinned, woman. Her bust is very big, maybe two times—No......maybe even three times her head, each breast... She is very tall, for a woman. That is, about one-hundred-seventy-five centimeters tall. She is white-skinned, as mentioned. Her hair.........is a very long, ponytail-style, beautiful black hair... When seeing her, you would be at loss of words... Such a nice woman......who could she be......?? She is......on other than the soul that is sealed inside of [Lightning Judgment]... She wears a rather devilish, malicious smile on her face... She's making a rather devilish, malicous grin... She then gigles [Ara, ara... Ufufufu...] and a single, short moment, after that......she wears a bit serious look on her face.........and then shoots out a lot lightnings, and a lot of dragon-shaped lightnings, which spit out a lot of lightnings... Amid of all of this, this woman, [Lightning Judgment].........just laughs, or rather, in other words, gigles [Ara, ara... Ufufufu...]... Such a devilish, yet beatiful woman.........she is the one......she is the soul......that is sealed inside of the [Annihilation Gear].........[Lightning Judgment].......she is.........[Lightning Judgment].........herself.........you could say......... Belial screams and shouts [.........kuh—!], in response, out of pain, such a pain......that he feels like he could die any moment.........and that wouldn't be weird at all, but rather normal.

Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—! Bzzz—!

Belial then says:

".........I've.........finally.........got a hold.......a bit of a hold......of how these [Annihilation Gear]'s......of you.........work.........!!" Belial then wears a huge smile on his face, and says. "[Worthless], [Worthless], [Worthless]." Belial then pauses for a moment, takes a deep breathe, and then continues and says. "I've just now, rendered that [Limit Release] ability of that [Sword of Annihilation] of yours, as [Worthless]. As well as that, I've just now, rendered that [Yòu Dòu] ability of that [Sword of Annihilation] of yours, as [Worthless]. And finally, I've just now, rendered that [Sword of Annihilation] of yours.........as [Worthless].........!!" Belial raises his hand high, up to the sky, and overvalues himself, thinking that with just this much, he would be able to win...

Then, [Sword], that man, that handsome, mid-twenties-aged, rather tall, man......that man just disappears........and then Giichi tried once again to summon [Sword], but that didn't work, and then, once again, Giichi tried to summon [Sword], but it ended up with a failure. And then, after the two tries, Giichi tried thrice.........to summon [Sword], but.........ended up failing to summon [Sword].........

Belial then says:

"Finally......all of this extreme pain......." Belial spits blood out of his mouth. It seems like Belial doesn't have that much time to defeat Giichi... Belial then continues and says, ".........have come to be worth.........." Belial then takes a very deep breathe. Deeper than before. He, Belial, after a moment of silence, then cotinues and says. "......[Worthless], [Worthless], [Worthless]......!!" Belial falls down to the ground, being fatigued. Belial then explains. "......I've......just now......rendered that [Limit Release] ability......of that [Lightning of the Apocalypse] of yours......as [Worthless]........." Belial then spits blood out of his mouth. "—As well as that......I've......just now...... rendered that [Zhū Nǎi] ability of that [Lightning of the Apocalypse] of yours......as [Worthless]......" Belial then, once yet again, spits blood out of his mouth, and then continues and says. "As well as that, also, I've, just now......rendered that [Lightning of the Apocalypse] of yours.........as [Worthless]........." Belial then wears another, once yet again, huge smile, and raises his hand up high to the sky.

That teen, beautiful, white-skinned, rather tall, busty, woman.........that woman........just disappears.........and Giichi then tries to summon her, [Lightning Judgment], once again, but fails immediately. Giichi then tries, once again, to summon [Lightning Judgment], but ends up failing... And then, Giichi tries thrice......to summon her......[Lightning Judgment], but.........ends up failing to summon [Lightning Judgment].........

Belial, in response, raises clenches his fist, and rushes to Giichi.........in a God-like speed.........!! Although, Giichi isn't surprised or astonished by that, or whatsover, and rather disappointed. Then, Belial reaches to Giichi, and punches him, with both of hands.........!! And even though all of that, Giichi isn't showing any signs of doing anything, and still is wearing that disappointed look on his face, because of some unknown reason. Then—!

"—Did you really think that you'd be able to win against me that easily...?!" Giichi says while blocking all of Belial's fists, in a God-like speed, with only one hand! Giichi then continues and says. "If so, then.........think again, you dumbass!!" Giichi then clenches his fist on the other hand, and then punches Belial. Belial, being punched by Giichi, gets blown away.

Belial then says:

"...To think that you still have that much energy......that much power......left in you........." Belial then wipes the blood off his mouth, and then, after a moment of silence, continues and says. "......Then......how about.........this.........!?" Belial musters a lot of magic power, and shoots out a very strong offensive magic, or rather, in other words, a very strong attack, which seems like some kind of blue ray.

Giichi, seeing this......wears a rather disappointed look......on his face...... A disappointed look......even more disappointed than before...... Just like before, Giichi, seeing this......isn't surprised, or astonished, or whatsover, but rather......more than that......Giichi......seeing this......wears a rather......a very disappointed look......on his face...... Also, Giichi isn't showing any signs to do anything at all. Not moving, not dodging, nor even blocking. Giichi......just stands there......wearing a rather......wearing a very......disappointed look on his face......

Giichi then says:

"Oh-oh..." Giichi wears a smile on his face. Giichi then continues and says. "To think that you'll be able to actually injure me......" Giichi laughs a bit, and then continues and says. "I'll give you that one. —But........." Giichi seems to have a rather serious look on his face. Giichi is then cotinuing and is then saying, ".........that's all there is to it........." Giichi then says. "[Friendly Healer]......[Heal]......"

{U-Understood...!}

{[Heal]...!}

Giichi's wound then heals, as if it never existed. Giichi then breaks out on a laughter. That is, a freak's laughter, a lost cause's laughter. Giichi is then walking, slowly, towards Belial, who is getting more and more scared of Giichi, as well as getting more and more freaked out of Giichi. Belial tries to crawl, run away from him, from Giichi, but......Giichi catches him, catches Belial......right after a second. As he holds Belial, who seemingly admits defeat, Giichi then says:

"Well.........it's time to wrap things up..." Giichi then throws Belial, down to the ground, once yet again, and the, Giichi is continuing and he is saying. "...So......was fun, but......time for you to go down......Belial-san......" Giichi then makes a grin, but right then, Belial, who is being freaked out, manages to get out of Giichi's hold, gets up, takes a distance, and continues running, without stopping.

Belial isn't stopping, he is just running and running, without stopping, without thinking, without even thinking of stopping, he is, just like that, running and running, without stopping. Belial is looking over and over, to see if Giichi have already caught up to him or not yet. He, Belial, can hear his heart, beating over and over, like crazy, without stopping, just like he, Belial, is running and running, without stopping, just like that, his heart, is beating and beating, witout stopping, over and over, like crazy.

Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—! Dokun—!

Then—!

"—You should now know, or learn of you still don't know: Do not try your luck against me, for I am Giichi Asmodeus, for I am the one who is above all and everything. Don't you even dare to forget that. Do you hear me!? Heed my words that I'm saying right now very well, and remember them always. Heed these words of mine very well...............Belial-san...............just in case we'll meet again........."

{Belial-sama......has......retired!!}

Then, amid of that announcement, or rather, a moment before that announcement, you could see Giichi, behind Belial, who is running over and over, without stopping. And that's not everything. That's not all. You could also see Giichi's hand going through Belial, and getting into Belial from his back, and getting out of Belial, through his chest. And that still isn't all. You could also see Belial bleeding a sea of blood, out of his back and out of his chest, after Giichi pulled his hand back. You could also see Belial getting down to the ground, lying, lifeless...

Identity

After the events that happened up until now, Giichi was announced as the winner of the [Rating Game]. Giichi also won the title of being the [Champion] of the [Rating Game]. It is then, that I—Giichi Asmodeus—see Belial coming to me, willing to talk to me about something. He, Belial, then gives me a business card. That is, a business card of some cafe. That means that he invites me to some cafe, so we would have some space to ourselves, to talk freely, about what he wants to talk... Of course, I—Giichi Asmodeus—have no reason to decline, so I just tell him that I agree [Okay. I understand. We'll meet there tonight, at 19:00.] and he agreed, as well.

At that night, I—Giichi Asmodeus—go to that cafe, at 18:00, a hour earlier than we agreed. I wait there for a hour. Then, exactly at 19:00, I see someone entering the cafe. That "someone" is Belial. Seemingly, he is here at the exact time that we agreed about. Not earlier, and not later, the exact time that we agreed about. He then takes a sit, near to me. Then, the butler gets to us, and asks us what we want to order, and we then order just cafe, the two of us, both Belial and I—Giichi Asmodeus. Belial then starts talking to me. He, Belial, then says:

"Asmodeus-dono... About that [Rating Game]... When you said those things......what did you mean......?"

I—Giichi Asmodeus—then reply:

"Exactly like I said. You shouldn't try your luck against me. Luck has favored me too many times for it to be changed just once." I pause for a moment, and then, after a moment of silence, I continue and say. "Although, right now, it's already different... Now......I can win on my own, without relying on my luck alone..." I can see Belial surprised.

Belial then talks:

"So......do you mean to say......that you weren't strong at your beginning...?" Belial tries to understand what's going on. He then continues and says. "......You...... D-Do you mean that you weren't the strongest being up until recently......or......what do you mean...... I......don't understand...... I......cannot understand......" Belial is totally puzzled.

I—Giichi Asmodeus—then explain myself:

"I... I was a human......who was reincarnated......and became a Devil......and even then......I was very weak, and only relied on my luck......and somehow, things went okay, but...... Somewhen after that......my luck has ran out, and......I had to rely on me, on myself, so I tried to be stronger and stronger, so even if someone else'll have luck......even then, I'll be out of his luck's reach......my power......will be out of the reach of everyone......" I pause for a second. A rather long moment of silence pass between me to Belial. I then continue and say. "Also, at the day that my luck ran out......I went by a different name, ever since then...... That name......is......Giichi Yerhze. Although, half a year ago, or so, I changed my name to Giichi Asmodeus, because of my position as the Maou Asmodeus." I then get up from my sit, and go towards the exit. I am out of the cafe, but I then see Belial rushing towards me.

"—W-W-Wait a moment...!!" Belial is saying as he is trying to stop me from going, for some reason. He then continues and says. "You...... You said that your name as Giichi Yerhze......as well as your name as Giichi Asmodeus......you said that those two names.....are fake, made-up names.........didn't you.........? I-If so, then.........what is your real name......... W-What is your real.........what is your real identity.........who is the real you.........??" Belial is looking forward to my answer.

I—Giichi Asmodeus—then answer Belial, who is waiting, who is looking forward to my answer, so I—Giichi Asmodeus—answer him, who is no other than Belial. Me answer as Giichi Asmodeus is:

"Did you really think I'd tell you who I am??"

I—Giichi Asmodeus—then walk and get out of Belial's eyesight. Belial is seemingly astonished by my answer. Although, I—Giichi Asmodeus—couldn't care any less. As if I—Giichi Asmodeus—would tell my real name......my real identity......to anyone......! As if I—Giichi Asmodeus—would tell.........to anyone.........who is the real me.........! In your dreams, Belial!! I...... I kept this secret with me for 400 years...!! As if I would reveal it just like that, to someone like you......who has no relation to me......!!

Life 4: Hyoudou Meeting

Part 1

Two weeks after the [Rating Game] was concluded, meaning, after I—Giichi Asmodeus—was announced as the [Champion], meaning that Belial couldn't take my position as the [Champion], two weeks after that......I—Giichi Asmodeus—am at this moment, attending a meeting, held by the heads of the [Hyoudou Clan], or in other words, at this moment, I am attending a meeting of the [Hyoudou Clan]. The reason for this......for why am I attending this meeting......is very simple. That is, I am the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan].

If you're asking what this meeting is about, it is about the recent [Rating Game], in which I represented the [Hyoudou Clan], and won over, once yet again, the title of being the [Champion] of the [Rating Game], which is a rather great honor for every Clan, including the [Hyoudou Clan], and that means that I did something that brought honor to the [Hyoudou Clan]. But......if so, then......what are we going to talk about in this meeting......??

It is then, that I—Giichi Asmodeus—also known as the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan]—I hear a voice from someone, directed towards me, saying something.

"—Hyoudou-sama! You should think about the name you are going with, when you are participating in a [Rating Game]!" The one who said the following, is the last head of the [Hyoudou Clan], Seiichi Hyoudou. He is younger than me. He then continues. "You represented us, you know! You represented the [Hyoudou Clan], you know! Not the Maou Asmodeus, Hyoudou-sama!" Seiichi is rather anger... He then continues even more than before. "No wonder your name is written with "Falsehood/Fake" and "One". You are truely fake one!" Seiichi is making such a weird face... What he says, is true, nevertheless...

Then, I answer Seiichi Hyoudou, who is going to throw something at me if I won't answer. My answer, my reply, to Seiichi Hyoudou, who is no other than the last head of the [Hyoudou Clan]......my answer, my reply to him......as the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan], is:

"Seiichi-san, stop. This name......Giichi......is the name that our founder, Hyoudou Issei, has bestowed upon me! If you make fun of this name of mine, then you might, just as well, make fun of our founder, Hyoudou Issei!" I said this as I got up from my sit, and put my hands on the table. "—Well then... Back to the topic. What you want to say is, that I am not worth my current position, which is the position of being the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan]. Am I wrong with what I'm saying, Seiichi-san?" I look at Seiichi with a serious look on my eyes.

Then, Seiichi replies, just as well:

"First, I am the last head of the [Hyoudou Clan], so you should, at least, address me with "-dono", or maybe even with "-sama", and you should know that very well, Hyoudou-sama!" Seiichi pauses for a second as he takes in a deep breathe, and then continues. "Second, you are partly right, but partly wrong, just as well." Seiichi then gets up from his sit, and points his index finger at me [Let me explain.], and continues. "As I said, you are partly right. That is, I think that you truely are no worthy of your current position, which is the position of being the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan]. But—!"  He, Seiichi, pauses for a second, and I then cut him amidst of what he says.

"—I get it, I get it! I already know long ago what you wanted to say, Seiichi-san!!" I pause for a second, and then, a few seconds after that, I reveal Seiichi's thoughts. "What you want to say is something like ["Although what I said, I think that you still did bring us a rather great honor, keeping our position, or rather, our—the [Hyoudou Clan]'s—heir's, position, as the [Champion] of the [Rating Game]. Thus, you actually are worthy of your current position, as the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan]. That's what I think, Hyoudou-sama."], or something along the lines! Or actually, should I say that it is exactly what you were about to say?!" I hit the table and say. "And also, you said it yourself.! You are the last head of the [Hyoudou Clan], so there's no need in hell to address you in such a manner as "-dono" or "-sama", and especially not when I am the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan]!! And not to mention, you're younger than me! If you are talking about respect and addresing as one is to, then behave as you should, respectfully towards elders!" I said that in a rather loud voice.

Then, after a moment of silence passes between us all, I—Giichi Asmodeus—who is also the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan]—I then go to the exit of this room, in which we all are attending this meeting. I hear some voice, directed towards me, probably trying to stop me from going out, and just like that, leave the meeting, but I couldn't care any less. Although......I am willing to hear what they have to say......so......I will, at least, hear what they have to say......

"—Please, don't leave yet, Hyoudou-sama! We still have other things to talk about!" The one who said that was Yi Cheng, who is the Chinese descendant of the [Hyoudou Clan]'s founder, Hyoudou Issei. Apparently, his name is written the same way as Seiichi's, the Kanji of "Truth" and the Kanji of "One". Although, since Yi Cheng is Chinese, his name is according to the Chinese way of pronouncing it. He then continues, and says. "I know that the things that Seiichi-dono said may have had some bad effect on your mood, but we still need to talk about few things. So bear with us for a bit, Hyoudou-sama." This Yi Cheng...... As he was saying all the things that he said......Yi Cheng was bowing down before me......

Well......I think that I have no choice but to listen to what this Yi Cheng is saying... I mean, he says true things, and......maybe......no—. At any event, I am going to listen to this Yi Cheng's request.

Part 2

After a rather long meeting, I am going back home, and much to my surprise.........Sakucchi.........isn't here......... Yay!! Her weirdness was just about to infect me...! Phew! But.......it sure is weird......that Sakucchi isn't here......... But who cares~! Finally, after all of that mess that was in that meeting......... I can finally get my rest.........!!

Although.........that Yi Cheng......he is rather weird...... I mean, all of the heads of the [Hyoudou Clan] were against me, and tried to take me off the position of being the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan], but......that Yi Cheng didn't...... It can't be.........can it.........?? —No. It cannot be. He isn't that much close to me......not from what I remember, anyhow......

Yet.........this sure is weird.........where is Sakucchi? She always brags into my house, without caring the least. So......considering all of that, why.........why isn't she here?? What is happening? Something is off...... What is going on? What the heck happened when I was off for less then three hours......? At this hour......at this hour......at this hour, Sakucchi would always be here, bragging into my house......without caring the least......being weird, and giving some weird excuses for being that weird......!

I make a serious face, as I think of something. I say what I think of, out loud.

"I know! I'll search the house!"

I said it, and started searching all over the house......only to find nothing...... Where are you, for crying out loud......huh......Sakucchi!? Where!? Where!? Where!? Where!? Where!? Where are you hiding!? Where are you hiding!? Are you hiding here!? Are you hiding here!? I search all over but I don't find her anywhere. I think out loud, once yet again.

"Don't hide......Sakucchi! Stop this hide and seek, Sakucchi!! I know you are there.........Sakucchi!!! You are the only true friend that I've made through these 300 years or so.........Sakucchi!! I know you're there, hiding, somewhere.........Sakucchi!" I continue to search, over and over, and still, I cannot seem to find Sakucchi. I go to the bathroom, and see Sakucchi over there, half naked. She is telling me to come over there and have a shower with her. "—Don't joke with me! You know how hard I searched all over for you...!" I then see that I only imagined Sakucchi being there and telling me to come over and have a shower with her.

Where is she?? Where? Here? There? Over there? Top? Bottom? Left? Right? Below me? Above me? Where?? Where is she?? Where is she hiding from me? Why is she hiding from me!? Tears fall from my eyes. I go to the toilet, and see Sakucchi over there, embarrassed, seeing me being so close to her, in such an awkward situation. I realize that I just imagined all of that scene. Where is she?? I search all over, but I still don't find her. I go to my bedroom.

Over there, I see Sakucchi, who is currently taking her rest on my bed [Hmm...... Gicchi...... He is lonely......so I will be the one who will be with him......together...... Hmm......]. She is sleep-talking......even though I searched for her all over my house...... She sure is a rather care-free person...... Still......the tears won't get off... Although, this time, these are tears of happiness. I am very happy that I found Sakucchi. This time, I am not imagining things. This time, the Sakucchi I see.........she is the real deal.........this Sakucchi that I see at this moment, lying on my bed like that......sleeping, and sleep-talking, like that......this beautiful girl......she is, definitely......Sakucchi......!

"—Hmm......... Gicchi......... Not there........ Kya~!" Sakucchi is sleep-talking at the moment. But......the things that she is saying......they don't sound all that good to me...... Sakucchi wakes up, and says. "Gi-Gi-Gi-Gi-Gi—Gicchi! What are you doing here...?!" Sakucchi seems, to be a bit surprised, for some reason......

Why is she surprised?? She is at my home......so that......me being here......that much is obvious......isn't it.....?? If so, then.........why is she surprised that much......? I can understand her being embarrassed, but......what is she that much surprised about.........exactly.........?? It can't be...... Might it be.........that by some chance......perhaps......?? No...... It can't be......

Sakucchi then says:

"D-D-D-Di-Di-Did—Did you hear what I said......did you hear my sleep-talking......?" Sakucchi's face is turning comepletely red... She then gets up from my bed. She continues and says. "You......you.........you didn't......did you......?" Sakucchi turns her face towards the wall. She does this only to hide her embarrassed face, from me......but......I can see her cheek......and her cheek is completely red......just like her whole face. What should I say.........??

I—Giichi Asmodeus—who is also the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan]—reply:

"I......I heard......but......" I pause for a moment. I then continue, after a moment of silence, and say, ".........I think......I think that you were a little bit cute......so you don't need to be that much embarrassed......" As I say that, my face gets red, just as well. I am so embarrassed...... I then continue and say. "If you get that much embarrassed.........I will get embarrassed, too........." I am so embarrassed......! I'm embarrassed as hell.........! I am so embarrassed, that I could die from embarrassment......!

A moment of silence passes between me to Sakucchi.........

How stupid could I be......!? Of course nothing would happen! Why did I go out of my way, just to search for Sakucchi!? I......why is my heart beating so fast......? I... Can it be that.......I am still worried......? No, it cannot be! I......Sakucchi is right beside me......! This Sakucchi who is beside me right now.........I am not imagining her! She is really here!

Sakucchi......if it's only you, then......then I would be able to protect you...... So please...... Even if you are a Maou......you still can get hurt, so I will make sure to have your back......! Sakucchi, I will protect you......! As I thought about that, I hugged Sakucchi by instinct. It is then that I think out aloud:

"Sakucchi......I......will protect you......at all costs......!"

After a moment of silence passes, I notice what I've been thinking up until now, what I've just thought out aloud......... I also realize that I have hugged Sakucchi by instinct......... I get away from Sakucchi, and wear a fear-filled look on my face, as I move my hand close to my face, and try touching my face......... I just then realize...... I then think out aloud:

"—I.........what have I done......up until now.........?" I punch the wall, and hit the wall with my head. I swallow my saliva, and continue to think aloud, just like that, as if nothing happened. "I......how could I forget such an important thing......!?!?!?" I get crazier by the moment, and just hit myself, the wall, everything.

I go berserk, you could say. But, I then look at Sakucchi, who is the cause for me as of forgetting that important thing......... I then go berserk furthermore, more and more, futhermore crazier and crazier...... But......she......Sakucchi......doesn't seem to have any change in her look. But, her look did change from a bit before. A bit before, she was embarrassed as hell, but now she makes a sad face......... She gets closer to me by the moment, and then, finally, when she's really close to me, she tells me:

".........Giichi......don't cry......don't do anything rash......!" Sakucchi hugs me then, after surprising me by calling me by my actual name, which is something that Sakucchi never does.  After Sakucchi hugs me, a moment of silence passes, and I am astonished, for the first time, once in a while......... Sakucchi then, after a moment of silence, continues and says. ".........Giichi......you......you act tough, but inside......inside, you are......nothing grand...... Inside, you, Gicchi, are......kind......! Gicchi, you act tough, but inside, deep inside, you are way too kind, and you're not tough at all, and you get hurt easily, and........." Sakucchi cries on me. I—Giichi Asmodeus—scream out, in response.

I—Giichi Asmodeus—who is also known as the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan]—I scream out as I go crazy, as I go berserk, but all of that is because I forgot something way too important. The reason that I forgot these things......is.........Sakucchi......... That Sakucchi, who is the reason for me forgetting such an important thing......she is......right now, she is......hugging me....... I—Giichi Asmodeus—who is also known as the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan]—I reply with such a comment, as I push Sakucchi away:

"Sa—Sakucchi......! You......! Get out! I don't want to see you anymore!"

I—Giichi Asmodeus—who is also known as the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan]—I pause for a moment. Sakucchi gets sadder and sadder with every second and second that pass, she gets sadder by the moment, and tears suddenly fall out of her eyes. She cries, and she screams, and she shouts out my name, trying to calm me down, as well as she is trying to calm down herself. That's right. Sakucchi doesn't know anything just yet about me.

After a moment of silence, Sakucchi tries to talk to me nicely, but I cut her words amidst, as I—Giichi Asmodeus—who is also known as the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan]—I say:

"Sakucchi! Get out! Just...... I don't want to see you here anymore! Get out! The circle is about to have a re-go! As if I have time to deal with a nasty woman such as you, and then forget my reasons for living, forget my love, forget my beloved ones, because of how much you're lovely!! As if I have time for a such a woman, like you.........!!"

Sakucchi then says:

"Gicchi......no—Giichi......no—Asmodeus......! You......you jerk......! Baka! Asmodeus......you don't know anything do you!? As if you would know anything! Asmodeus.........you don't understand anything, do you!? Of course......! As if you would understand anything.........! Falling for me, you say!? As if such a thing would be possible! I don't know very much about you, but......but now I know one thing about you, Asmodeus! You are the worst guy, you are the worst man.........EVER!!!!"

Sakucchi bursts in tears, and rushes towards the door. She looks at me with eyes filled with sadness, but mixed with hatred. She is sad for me and because of me. She hates some people, of course, but now, I have been added to them, I think. These eyes......... Shit! I didn't mean to say these things just to fall for you even more than before, you idiot, Sakucchi! I said these things to get rid of these emotions of mine towards you, you know......! It was much harder than you think!

As Sakucchi rushed towards the door.........I could see her tears......overflowing her face, overflowing her beautiful face, ruining it. Just as well as that, I could hear her voice......... She said something...... She was sad...... She said:

"Asmodeus......you......you jerk......! Baka! Asmodeus.......you.........you'll pay for this......! I......will make you pay for this...! You......will see! Don't say I didn't warn you......you asshole......you jerk......! Asmodeus......don't forget these words of mine......don't forget these words that I said today......! I, Sakurako Leviathan, will make you, Giichi Asmodeus, pay for your actions, for these actions of yours, for these things that you did to me today.........!"

I.........will I be able to be friends with her again......? Why......why is my heart beating like crazy!? Calm down, me! Calm down, this heart of mine......! She's just another woman! Calm down, me! I've had plenty of women during my life, didn't I!? Why!? Why!? Why!? Why!? Why!? Why!? Why!? Stop it, me! STOP!! I breathe heavily. She's just some freak. After a night's rest, she would forget everything she said, right? I'm certain that tomorrow, she would brag into my house, like always, call me Gicchi, like always, and everything will come back to its usual. I am certain of this. Yet.........why is my heart beating so fast, why am I so uncertain......despite all of this.........!? Why!? Why!? Why!? Why!? Stop it, me......! I should know one thing for certain; everything ends once it ends, and I know it the best! Yet......yet......why!? Why!? I.........just a moment ago......I decided to throw my feelings towards her......my affection to her......I decided to throw it all, away, yet......! Why am I such a pathetic being......!? I have the power that outstands everyone! I always hold back, because I want to enjoy my fights! Yet......how can I be so much weak......at such an important time......!? The circle isn't going to wait for me......! Just as well as that, Sakucchi isn't going to wait to me all the day! I need to get myself to do it! I have to do it! That's it! If I won't do it, then who'll do it!? The answer is simple! No one will! And that simply means that I have to do it by myself! I have to settle things with her.........and only then, we'll be able to be friends again.........and only then, I'll be able to truely throw away my affection to her......only then, I'll be able to really throw away my feelings towards her......!

Life 5: Her Feelings

Part 1

I—Sakurako Leviathan—also known as the Maou Leviathan—two days after the incident with Asmodeus, at my home, wearing a desperate look on my face. That is, a desperate look of someone who is dead. I go to my refrigerator and take out nothing, and just leave it, like that, open. Although, there was nothing inside of it. I just drink water, directly from the faucet, instead of taking out a cup from the drawer and pour water into that cup and drink from that cup after that.

"—That Asmodeus......" I put my head somewhat not so much deep in the sink and continue, "......he's such a jerk......saying such things......" Tears fall from my eyes, as I say. ".........Gicchi.........why did you say these things.........why did you tell me to get out of your home......why did you......why did you say such cruel things......you could be more gentle......!" I raise my head and scream out. After this, I shout, instead of speaking in a normal tone. "......WHY!? WHY DID YOU DO SUCH A CRUEL THING TO ME.........GICCHI......! EVEN THOUGH YOU KNOW THAT I HAVE FEELINGS FOR YOU......!! EVEN THOUGH YOU KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU, MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE.........!! IF SO, THEN WHY, HUH!? WHY, GICCHI!? WHY, ASMODEUS!?" I calm down after a few seconds, as I breathe heavily.

I hit everything I see in front of me, and breathe heavily, after hitting a lot of things, out of frustration. As I breathe heavily, I see that I hit most of my home, or in other words, I hit almost all of my home... I see cracks everywhere, empty, cracked, broken refrigerator, a sink, which is broken into two halves, and finally, last but not least, I also see my faucet, all cracked. All of this mess is due to me going berserk.

I cry, thinking of Asmodeus... That's right. After that incident two days ago......ever since that, I stopped calling him Gicchi, and started calling him Asmodeus. I have put a distance between the two of us. I...... I don't to see him again......! Who am I trying to lie to......?? I...... I still love him..... I...... I don't know why, but......every time I see him......my heart skips a beat, and my head goes crazy, and......and......and every time I see him......everything becomes different......in my vision, everything is happy, and yet in his vision......everything is so sad......

I don't know what's wrong with me...... Something is......different from before...... I...... I don't know......! What's......what's wrong with me?? I... I...... I.........!! Why my heart won't stop beating so fast......?? Why......is my vision......becoming sadder and sadder......? Is it because of him? Is it because of me, myself? Am I imagining things? —No......it isn't this......I am not imagining things......it's......it's him...... It is because I...... It is because I thought of him......for a moment......a moment ago......

As I think of this......I imagine Asmodeus, standing before me......making a grin, and the he is telling me to get out, and he said that with a rather coarse language [Get out of here, BITCH! Oi, didn't you hear me!? I told you to get the fuck out of here, you bitch!]. I...... Hearing this, I get nervous...... I decide to listen to this figure that I imagine. Maybe, I really should go outside, and refresh a bit...... Maybe......maybe there will be something good......that will happen, and my mood will get better......

I slowly go towards the door...... I then reach to the door, and then I get sadder and sadder, thinking about him......thinking that maybe I'll see him, and something bad will happen...... I lean my head towards the door, and go down, slowly. Asmodeus......why are you such a jerk......? Why do you have to say such things......that will sadden me......? Why......Gicchi......? Why.........Asmodeus.........? Tears fall from my eyes, as I think of him......again......

I try to wipe my tears, but more and more tears fall from my eyes, more than I wipe...... The more that I wipe the tears......the more that they will fall from my eyes...... The more that I think of him......the more that I think of Gicchi.........the more that I think of Asmodeus.........the more that the tears will fall from my eyes......... The more that I try to forget him, the more that he's getting stuck, more and more, in my head...... Why did you have to break my heart......!? Why did you have to leave me, here, sad......trying to forget you......trying to get over you, but...... I then already start to think aloud.

"—You......you jerk......Gicchi......! You.........you jerk.........Asmodeus.........!" I wipe tears, and yet, more tears fall from my eyes. The tears won't stop falling from my eyes...... "I......even though I thought I started hating you......even though you were totally okay, I......I......! I wasn't okay at all......!" I hit the door with both of my hands, although it's more like just touching the door. I caress the door, gently, and lean, with my head, against the door. "Gicchi, you jerk......" I start to calm down, or so I thought, but......... "Why did you have to to such a thing!? Why did you tell me to leave!? Why did you have to say such cruel things!? Why......why did you have to tell to me that you don't want to see me? Why did you have to sadden me like that......!? Why did you have to sadden me that much......!?" Tears fall from my eyes, and they won't stop. The tears won't stop falling from my eyes.

I go away from the door, and wipe my tears. This Asmodeus......this Gicchi......he's such a jerk. But......he's still the man that I fell in love for, and that's for sure...... I finally calm down a bit. I mean, I cannot afford to waste all of my day, just like that, just crying over something that has already been, that has already happened, I cannot afford to myself to cry over and over, for all of the day, just over some jerk...... It is then, that I—Sakurako Leviathan—who is also known otherwise as Maou Leviathan—I hear knocks on on the door.

Knock! Knock!

I wonder who can this be...... I go to the door, and open it, but what I see is......a letter. I wonder who's letter this is...... I pick it up, since it's in front of my door, to see if it's to me, and I see my name on it. Ahh...... So it is for me, after all. I wonder what is written in this letter, but that can wait for a bit later.

Part 2

I lie on my bed, sad, with a bit of tears. And here I thought that I finally returned to my usual self...... I wipe my tears. But, one thing for sure; I will make him take those words of him back! I nod and raise my hands to my face as I wear a smile on my face. Well......although I said that, I did give up on making him pay for those words, so I won't go so far with it...... Tears fall from my eyes once yet again.

Tsk......! I need to keep my thoughts about something else than him. Yet.........why is he always popping up in my head......no matter what I'm thinking of at the moment......? Maybe...... I start to wear a sad, yet embarrassed look on my face. Well...... I guess......that it's because I do love him......after all, or something like that...... I try to cover my sad yet embarrassed face, with my hands. I think it's......probably because of this......after all...... Once I stop getting embarrassed, or anything else than sad, I start wearing a sad look on my face. And that is happening, right now......

I know! If that's how it's going to be......then I'll just think about something happy! Something very happy, that I will be able to focus on, for a lot of time! A happy memory......something that I am really happy that it happened...... Maybe the time when I firstly became a Maou, as I aimed to for about 30 years? No......it isn't that much happy thing, that I will be able to focus on for a lot of time. Hmm......hmm......hmm......then how about......what!? What am I thinking about!? Mou~! Even now......he has to pop up in my head......right off the bat...... Well......that memory is a thing that I am rather happy about its happening......

Right......as of now, I thought about remembering the time when Gicchi and I met......the time when Gicchi challenged that time's Asmodeus, for the title of Asmodeus...... Well, I guess......that maybe......already then......I have fell for him...... That is, fell in love......for him...... Well, I guess that I should try and see what will happen...... I mean, if I will think about something happy, then I will be able to be something else than sad, so case solved. But......if I will be thinking about him......then I will be sad......won't I......? Well, it's a complex, but I think that I should, at least, give it a shot, or I will never know what will happen in such a case...

And, just like this, I try my best to think of that time.

——Somewhere In The Underworld, 3 Years Ago——

"—Asmodeus-dono, there is someone who is wishing to challenge you, as you know, and the challenge is today, too, as you know." The one who said the following is a handsome, tall man, who looks in his mid-twenties. He has a rather long, crimson red hair, and blue-green eyes. That's right. The one who said that is Sirzechs Lucifer, or as I prefer calling  him, Sirzechs-dono. He, Sirzechs-dono, then continues and says. "His challenge against you is scheduled to about thirty minutes from now, Asmodeus-dono." He finishes his words with that. He isn't expanding anything too much, seemingly.

Then, another voice says something:

"Seemingly, his name is Giichi Hyoudou." The one who said the following was a handsome man, who looks in his mid-twenties. He has a green hair, which is slicked back. That's right. The one who said that was Ajuka Beelzebub, or as I prefer calling him, Ajuka-dono. He, Ajuka-dono, then continues. "Apparently, he claims that his name isn't Giichi Hyoudou, but Giichi Yerhze, for some reason. That might be because he doesn't like his Clan, because he is the oldest one in his Clan, and despite that, he isn't the head of his Clan, but someone else is. This is what I think about this, Asmodeus-dono." He stops at that.

Then, once again, another voice says something:

"That someone is Seiichi Hyoudou." The one who said the following is a beautiful girl, who looks in her teen. She has a long, purple hair, which is tied into twin tails. She also has purple eyes. Her body is, surprisingly enough, like that of child, albeit with rather large breasts. That's right. She is Sakurako Leviathan. Or in other words, she is me!! She then continues and says. "I have a rather bad feeling about that Giichi guy...... I don't know why, but I have a bad feeling about him...... It might be a bad feeling about the fight of you two. Be careful, Asmodeus-dono." She finishes with this.

Then, once yet again, another voice says something else:

"I know, I know, and I know." The one who said that was a handsome, tall man, with a muscular build, who looks in his twenties. He also has a short blue hair, with a bit of red at its ends. He is Dendrocon Asmodeus, or as I prefer calling him, Dendrocon-dono. He, Dendrocon-dono, continues and says. "There is one thing you forgot to mention, although. He is also said to be on par with you two, Sirzechs-dono and Ajuka-dono." He looks at the door, as someone enters. He then says. "......That is, he has a power on par with that of a Transcendental Being, or in other words, he is a Transcendental Being, if not more than that. And that is something you are to note, you three." He pauses for a moment and then continues and says. "Don't you agree, too, Hyoudou-san?" He said that as he looked at who entered a moment ago. That's right. The one who entered a moment ago was Giichi.

I—Sakurako Leviathan—also known as the Maou Leviathan—I look at Giichi, who just entered. That is, with a suspicious look in my eyes, as I look at him. What cheat did he use in his life in order to claim such a power......? That is, a power of a Transcendental Being. What can it be? The [King] piece? Ophis' snakes? What can it be? Anyhow, he is strong. He is far from me, and yet, I can feel his aura......! It.........it's even more than Sirzechs-dono's real form.........!! Such a thing......how can it be......!?

"—Dendrocon Asmodeus, am I right?" The one who said that is a handsome, tall, muscular man who looks in his mid-thrities. He has a silver hair, which is somewhat long, but not very long. His eyes are light brown. He is Giichi. He looked the exact same as he looks at in the present. He then continues and says. "Well then, Asmodeus-san, are you ready?" Giichi wears a somewhat devilish smile as he says. "Actually, you needn't to answer me, because I already know your answer." Giichi laughs a bit after that.

Dendrocon-dono, hearing this, gets surprised, but calms down right after that. He then says:

"I see, I see." Dendrocon-dono wears a smile, and continues. "I have heard you have are said to be the strongest Devil, the [Hyoudou Clan]'s pride, who hosts more than six [Rephaite]'s, and uses them to the extreme." Dendrocon-dono then slowly goes towards Giichi as he continues and says. "I thought you were some kind of an urban legend of the [Hyoudou Clan], which was made in order to scare, but it seems like you are actually real." Then, Dendrocon-dono reaches to Giichi, and shakes hands with him. "Nice to meet you, Giichi-dono." Dendrocon-dono then goes back, getting ready to the fight.

Seemingly, Dendrocon-dono understands that Giichi is rather strong. Actually, what he says explains how this Giichi is emitting such a strong, dangerous aura. But, if so then......doesn't that mean that Dendrocon-dono is going to lose in a second, without Giichi even trying? I want to believe in Dendrocon-dono, as much as I can, but.........honestly, with six [Rephaite]'s......there's no hope for Dendrocon-dono. Dendrocon-dono probably doesn't have a chance to win, at all.

Then, both of them go into their room for the fight. Of course, since it is going to be a fight that a Maou will fight against some Devil who thinks that he has enough power to win against him, since it is such a fight, then the room for their fight is actually a [Rating Game]-like arena room. Or in other words, it is replica of somewhere. Actually, Giichi said that Dendrocon-dono may choose the place that will be replicated and will be their room for their fight.

They get ready for the fight, which will be in twenty-five minutes from now.

——25 Minutes After——

After what happened, they thought of what they will do in their fight. Then, they go to the room, and get transferred to the [Rating Game]-like arena room. The place that Dendrocon-dono chose for their fight to be replicated, was actually a made-up place. It was a three kilometers in its length, and about a kilometer and half a kilometer in its width. Seemingly, Dendrocon-dono's startegy was to tire Giichi. Dendrocon-dono came up with such a strategy because he knew that, hosting six [Rephaite]'s, Giichi will get tired in due time, so he needs a long and wide area, so he can teleport to somewhere far away from Giichi, using the teleportation magic that Ajuka-dono taught him a long time ago, for some reason.

Part 3

"—What a disappointment......" Giichi says, and closes his eys. Giichi then opens his eyes, and continues. "......And here I thought that you'll, at least, do something, anything, any kind of thing, that will surprise me, or astonish me, or something along the lines, but......" Giichi pauses for a moment, and then continues, ".........seems like this isn't the case........." Giichi then runs towards Dendrocon-dono's direction, in such a speed......in a God-like speed, making it seem as if......making it seem as if he disappeared!! Then—!

In front of Dendrocon-dono, is Giichi, "reappearing". Dendrocon-dono, in reaction to this, freaks out, although he gets a hold of himself, shortly after. Dendrocon-dono then runs away from Giichi, who was about to kick him. Giichi then draws a sword. That sword's color is a combination of dark brown and dark violet. The sword's length is ten Shaku[1]. The sword's shape is that of a Katana[2]. The sword, despite being rather sharp, has twelve little, white, angel wings out of it.

Then, Dendrocon-dono, seeing this, gets rather surprised, and says:

"So......might this be the legendary [Sword of Annihilation]......?" Dendrocon-dono wears an uncomfortable look on his face. Seemingly, he thinks that with this [Sword of Annihilation] in his hands, Giichi will probably win without even trying... Dendrocon-dono then continues. "This is going to be rather harsh, for me, but......" Dendrocon-dono pauses for a second, and then, right after this, continues and says, ".........even with that said.........the same goes for you, Giichi-dono.........!!" Dendrocon-dono then makes a grin. Seemingly, he plans something, and he thinks that either Giichi doesn't know about this, or Giichi can't do anything about it, even if he knew. Then—!

A lot of magic circles, a lot of magic squares, and even a lot of magic pentagon, and furthermore—even a lot of magic hexagon, and there is much more than that—even a lot of magic heptagon, and it still continues—even a lot of magic octagon, and it doesn't stop just yet—even also a lot of magic nonagon, and last but not least—even also a lot of magic decagon. All of these appear. All of these are offensive magic. All of these are directed towards Giichi, too.

Seems like Dendrocon-dono didn't really think of just running away...... Seemingly, he does plan to use some force, before tiring him, also while tiring him, and even after tiring him. That's a......rather straightforward......strategy...... But......will it really work out......this easily? I don't think that it will work out this easily. Dendrocon-dono better having some better strategy than this, or he will lose this battle in a second—no, maybe even in a millisecond......!

Then—!

All of Dendrocon-dono's attacks have hit Giichi, but the damage doesn't seem to be so grand. No, it certainly did give some damage. Even if not so much. Well......Giichi being durable is an obvious thing, as he is a Transcendental Being, so him—Giichi—being rather durable isn't surprising, at all.

Then, Giichi is there, with only mediocre injuries! Giichi looks at Dendrocon-dono with a bit more serious eyes. Giichi then walks slowly towards Dendrocon-dono's direction. Dendrocon-dono, in reaction to Giichi's action, gets freaked out, and scared. Although, he does get a hold of himself, shortly after. And he—Dendrocon-dono—then does the same thing, just like a moment ago, including making a grin. Dendrocon-dono's look, in his eyes, though......isn't the same......

Then—!

Giichi is still far away from Dendrocon-dono, meaning that he still didn't get hit by Dendrocon-dono's attacks just yet. Seeing this, Giichi intends to not dodge all of Dendrocon-dono's attacks, nor does Giichi intend to block all of Dendrocon-dono's attacks. Instead, what Giichi intends to do......is totally different...... Giichi then says:

"So......[Sword]......today......is it your shift......Zǐténg......?" Giichi says as he looks at his sword. Seemingly, Giichi's sword is the infamous [Annihilation Gear], [Sword of Annihilation]. Also, he—Giichi—calls his sword, which is an [Annihilation Gear], the [Sword of Annihilation], with a "nickname", [Sword]. Giichi then continues and says. "......Anyway......[Sword]......[Annihilation]......!!" Giichi wears a rather devilish, and a malicious smile. That is, of a freak.

—!

Then, the sword that Giichi holds, namely, [Sword], gets released, out of Giichi's hands. [Sword]'s angel wings expand. They expand so much, that each one and one of them gets to about three meters and half a meter. [Sword] then unleashes a huge, a gigantic......[Light Spear]...... Seeing this huge, this gigantic, [Light Spear], Dendrocon-dono tries to dodge, but......

—This huge, this gigantic, [Light Spear]......just changed its direction, to Dendrocon-dono, who just dodged......! This is absurd! Such a thing, since when was this possible!? Is this how Giichi attained the power that is equal to that of Transcendental Being?? It is possible, but still, just as well as it is possible, it might not be the case......

How can it be? Why can it use [Light Spear]? Also, not to mention, how can it even change the direction of such a huge, such a gigantic, Light Spear, which has been already dodged!? This power......isn't normal, at all...... It is not an Angel, so why......? Can it be......that that's the enormous power that the [Annihilation Gear]'s hold? Be whatever it is, this is something out of an actual understanding...... No wonder that they, the [Annihilation Gear]'s, are also called by the title, [The Forbidden Secret]......

—Then, just like this, [Sword] unleashes dozens of huge, gigantic, [Light Spear]'s. Seeing this, Dendrocon-dono tries to dodge, over and over, but ends up failing to dodge, over and over. Each [Light Spear] that Dendrocon-dono sees, he tries to dodge, but then another [Light Spear] hits him, and the [Light Spear] he tried to dodge, changes its direction to Dendrocon-dono, and eventually hits Dendrocon-dono, just like that. Thus, Dendrocon-dono ends up being beat harshly. Dendrocon-dono is injured heavily, but he takes out a [Phoenix Tear]!

Then, Dendrocon-dono speaks:

"It's really surprising, Giichi-dono. You don't stop amazing me, Giichi-dono." Dendrocon-dono said it with a look of someone who admits defeat. Dendrocon-dono then continues and says. "Well......this is the only [Phoenix Tear] I took with me. I mean, I cannot allow myself being beat so much, using so much [Phoenix Tear]'s, and after all of that, having my title, as the Maou Asmodeus, being taken by my opponent. I did do my research on you, and I saw just how ridiculously strong you are." Dendrocon-dono pauses for a moment, and takes a deep breathe. A moment of silence passes between Dendrocon-dono to Giichi...... Then, Dendrocon-dono continues speaking. "I did expect these [Annihilation Gear]'s to be something out of my scope of Demonic things, but to think that these [Annihilation Gear]'s are also something out of my scope of Holy things......" Dendrocon-dono then looks down, and directs his look towards Giichi, after a moment.

Giichi holds [Sword], and wears a devilish, malicious smile, just like he always does. Giichi then speaks out, just as well as Dendrocon-dono did a moment ago:

"It isn't that surprising~" Giichi walks towards Dendrocon-dono, who gets freaked out and shoots a lot of attacks, a lot of magic circles, and a lot of magic squares, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon, and so on. Giichi, on the other hand, stays cool, and just like that, continues and walks towards Dendrocon-dono, while fending off Dendrocon-dono's attacks. Giichi is then continuing furthermore, saying. "Well, if you want to see something even more amazing than what I used just a moment ago, then, well...... I don't mind showing you." Giichi pauses for a moment. A moment of silence passes between Giichi to Dendrocon-dono. Giichi continues and says. "Just make sure to hang on, because is might be a little bit too much for you~!" Giichi pauses for a moment. Yet another moment of silence passes between the two, or in another words, yet another moment of silence passes between Giichi to Dendrocon-dono. After a moment of silence, Giichi continues, and says. "[Sword] x [Lightning Judgment], [Lightning Strike]!!" Giichi makes a grin. Then—!

—[Sword] rises up high, and lightnings strike through it, over and over. At the same time, a lot of lightnings strike everywhere, randomly. Then, [Sword] throws a lot of [Light Spear]'s, and [Lightning Judgment] shoots a lot of lightnings. Although, since [Lightning Judgment] doesn't really have any form, she doesn't show up. Seeing this, Dendrocon-dono gets surprised. After all, he just sees [Light Spear]'s, which are covered in [Lightning Judgment]'s lightnings, going towards him. Dendrocon-dono tries to dodge Giichi's attack over and over, but.........Dendrocon-dono ends up failing to dodge Giichi's attacks, over and over, as Giichi's attacks would self-redirect themselves, everytime that Dendrocon-dono would try and dodge.

Giichi then says:

"How about giving up already, Asmodeus-san?" Giichi wears a freak's smile, and contninues. "After all......it isn't that you can do anything to me, can you......? Or is it that you're the arrogant one, Asmodeus-san?" Giichi breaks out on a laugh. Giichi calms down, a bit by a bit. Giichi, after getting calm after breaking out on a laugh, continues and says. "Well, want it or not, I'm going to blow you off." Giichi then suddenly wears a rather serious expression, a rather serious look, on his face, and on himself, as a whole. Then—!

Giichi could be seen behind Dendrocon-dono, stabbing him with both his hands, which were covered in [Lightning Judgment]'s lightnings, and Giichi also stabbed Dendrocon-dono with [Sword], which was covered with [Lightning Judgment]'s lightnings, just as well. Dendrocon-dono, too, could be seen bleeding quite a lot. Then, Giichi takes out his hands that are covered with lightnings that are provided by [Lightning Judgment], and [Sword], as well, which is covered with lightnings, as well, which are provided by [Lightning Judgment], as well.

Dendrocon-dono, in reaction to this—that is, in reaction to Giichi's action—that is, in reaction to Giichi's actions—Dendrocon-dono, in reaction to this, says something. What he says isn't heard very well. Although, you could hear something, and try hard, very hard, and listen, in order to hear something, and you would probably hear. What Dendrocon-dono said was probably something like this:

"Well......seems like you really won, after all, even after I have used a [Phoenix Tear], and even with my abilities as a member of the [Phoenix Clan]...... Good luck, congratulations, Giichi-dono. You have beat me in battle, and I will have my title as the Maou Asmodeus handed over to you. Treat it as it should be treated, and take responsibility for your actions today......may I ask you, at least, this......Maou......Asmodeus-sama......? With it in your hands, my only worries are about how the heck will I be able to take it back, if I would be able to, ever......so......please make sure to do what you need to do, Maou Asmodeus-sama......"

After speaking such a speach, Dendrocon-dono disappears and gets transpared into the room. I go to this room. I see there Dendrocon-dono, and just as well, Giichi. Dendrocon-dono wears a rather complex expression on his face. He seems to be sad about losing his title, that is, his title as the Maou Asmodeus. But......at the same time, he seems happy to lose his title as the Maou Asmodeus to someone like Giichi...... That is, to lose his title as the Maou Asmodeus, but to someone who is resposible, to someone who is strong, to someone who he can trust, and put his faith on......someone like......Giichi......

Thinking back then, I really did already fall in love with Giichi back then...... Ahh...... I bet my face is all red, with such embarressing thoughts, such as these...... But, well......as I thought, I really did manage to get myself not being sad and all, but, well......it still is embarrssing......



——Sakurako Leviathan's House, Present——

Well then, back to the present, back to me. After all of this, I hear knocks on the door, so I go to check who it is. I wonder who can this be? It cannot be Giichi coming back to me on four legs, can it? Of course it cannot be such a thing~. But then, really, I wonder who is this. Well, I will who is this, once I open to that someone my house's door.

Then, I open the door, and I didn't expect him to be knocking on my house's door...... That is, because......

Sakurako Leviathan

Previously, I—Sakurako Leviathan—who is known otherwise as the Maou Leviathan—I was depressed and tried to get over my current beloved one, probably, namely, Giichi Asmodeus. I tried to get over my sadness, and imagined the first time I saw Giichi, and succeeded with this. After all of this, I hear some kncks on the door.

Knock! Knock!

I wonder......who can this be? It isn't Giichi, coming back here, on four legs, begging to me to forgive him, can it......? Silly me~. Of course it won't happen. And furthermore, even if it were to happen, I would still prefer Giichi, coming back here, on two legs, not four, proposing to me, or something like that~. Ahhh~! I cover my face with my hands. I bet my face is all red......thinking things like this......

While I think about things like this, the one who is kncking on my door is still there, and I didn't open to that one the door just yet, so what is to happen next is pretty much obvious.

Knock! Knock! Knock! Knock!

Of course, the one who is knocking on my door, is knocking more and more, thinking that I didn't hear at first, maybe, and hoping that, at least, now, I will hear. Obviously, I have heard already at first, but I just thought about silly things, and didn't open the door just yet. Although, right now, I have "snapped" already, and thus, I go to the door, to open door, and I really do open the door.

"—Yo, Sakurako Leviathan-sama. I am someone who is related to Giichi Hyoudou-sama. I have came here, for one objective; to discuss with you, Sakurako Leviathan, regarding a few things, which include in them, a few things regarding Giichi Hyoudou-sama. Would you mind if I were to come in and discuss with you about the things that I mentioned a moment ago, Sakurako Leviathan-sama?"

Standing in front of me, after I have opened to him the door, he is. He is rather tall, muscular built, man, who looks in his thirties. His hair's color is a combination of dark blonde and black. His right eye' color is a combination of blue and yellow. His left eye's color is a combination of light brown and silver. He is the one who knocked on my door. He says he is related to Giichi, but is he really? Also, what does he want from me, really? I don't think that it would be something like that, but I'll listen to him, just in case......

I—Sakurako Leviathan—who is known otherwise as the Maou Leviathan—I then speak out to that someone who knocked on my door, just a moment ago. What I—Sakurako Leviathan—who is known otherwise as the Maou Leviathan—what I say is as the following:

"I don't know who you are, and I don't know if you really are related to Giichi, but......" I stop for a moment. Thus, a moment of silence passes between me to him...... After this moment of silence, I contine speaking, "......well, I guess I can let you in and discuss with about these things you want to talk about with me." I look at him with suspicious eyes. I say one more final thing. "Although, still, there's something I would like to know about you, Mr. Someone Who Knocked On My House's Door." I stop for a moment, and then, after that certain moment, I continue and say, or rather, ask. "My question to you, Mr. Someone Who Knocked On My House's Door, is as the following. May I know......what is your name, Mr. Someone Who Knocked On My House's Door?" I still don't stop looking at him with suspicious eyes.

As he, "Mr. Somone Who Knocked On My House's Door", wants to answer my question, and tell me his name, seeing my look towards him, he gets a little bit nervous. Although, I still don't stop looking at him with these suspicion filled eyes. But, even with this suspicion filled look on my eyes, he manages to answer my question, at last. His answer is:

"Well, my name is Liwa. Liwa Fushiru. Nice to meet you, Sakurako Leviathan. I am the leader of some team, or rather, maybe a Clan." He then stops for a moment. A moment of silence passes between the two of us...... He continues. "Well then, back to the topic." He enters the house and closes the door after him. We sit. He starts talking. "What do you, Sakurako Leviathan, think of Giichi Hyoudou-sama?" He looks at some direction, which is my direction.

What do I think of Giichi? What kind of question is that? Also, why does he start with question about Giichi, right off the bat? He said that there are some of the questions, which are regarding Giichi, but I doubt there are any other questions, besides questions regarding Giichi...... Still, I can answer such questions.

It is then, that I—Sakurako Leviathan—who is known otherwise as the Maou Leviathan—I answer Liwa Fushiru's question. My answer is:

"Well, he's doing a great job as a Maou, as the Maou Asmodeus......he's a good man, and......well, I might have fell in love for him......" I told him totally unnecessary things! Why should he know that I have fell in love for Giichi!? Silly me! Ahhh......! I am totally embarressed right now. So much, that I want to die...... I bet my face is all red by now...... I try to clear the air, or rather, to deny the fact that I fell in love for Giichi. "Y-You can forget about the last thing......!" I cover my face with my hands, once yet again. Ahhh...... What am I doing, really......

Hearing me, Liwa Fushiru laughs. After a moment, he calms down. He laughs a bit more. Another moment after that, he clams down, once and for all. He then wears a serious look on his face, once yet again. So he wants to ask me another question? I hope he didn't come only to laugh at me. He'd better not coming here only to laugh at me, as well. It would be bad, for him.

Then, Liwa Fushiru asks me another thing [Well then, I have another question for you.]. It's another question about Giichi [This question, too, is regarding Giichi Hyoudou-sama.]. He asks me what I know about him [Well then, what do you know about Giichi Hyoudou-sama? Tell me everything you know about him, about Giichi Hyoudou-sama, please.]. So he's finally serious with this, huh? Well, I might answer this question of him...... I answer his question. My answer to his question is:

"Well......you probably already know, but he's the Maou Asmodeus, as well as the current head of the [Hyoudou Clan], thus being called both as "Asmodeus-sama" and "Hyoudou-sama", although he went by a different, fake name, "Yerhze", half a year ago, or so." I pause for a little bit and breathe. Of course, this isn't close to be everything I know about Giichi. I continue shortly after. "He was the Maou Asmodeus ever since three years ago, when he challenged that time's Asmodeus, and defeated him, with ease." I added a bit of trivia. Now, for a bit more important information. I continue. "Aside from unneeded, little trivia, of course, I know a lot more about Giichi. Such as, he hosts six [Rephaite]'s, or so, or maybe even more, which is absurd. He is probably the strongest Devil ever. Also, more deeply, he has a lot of abilities. He uses some by himself, and he uses some by using his [Rephaite]'s. He is a user of the abilities [Pressure] and [Power of Destruction], although I bet he has much more abilities than only so much. Also, even though it's only and assumption of mine, I think he can also read thoughts. His [Rephaite]'s that I know of are [Sword Gear], [Lightning Judgment], [Friendly Healer], and one more, although I forgot its name. I know that he hosts two more [Annihilation Gear]'s, but I don't know about them anything at all. Also, seemingly, [Sword Gear] has two souls sealed inside it, or so. One is man, and about the other one, I don't know. Although that, I do know that the soul that is sealed inside [Lightning Judgment] is a woman. About [Friendly Healer], I don't really know so much, and I don't even know for sure if it has its own [Breakdown] or not. About the last one, I know that it's something that he won't use unless his opponent is so powerful, that even with [Sword Gear]'s power and [Lightning Judgment]'s power, combined, while dodging his opponent's attacks, his opponent won't be hit at all, and would hit Giichi, and [Friendly Healer]'s healing won't keep up, as long as this isn't the situation, he won't use that [Annihilation Gear], which I forgot its name. Also, this is another assumption of mine, but I think that Giichi might be a Reincarnated Devil, since he says that he is rather close to his Clan's, the [Hyoudou Clan]'s, founder, "The Great Issei Hyoudou", so much that he even claims to be his peerage's most important part. Furthermore, if my assumption, is, by any chance, true, then I think that Giichi also might have been a Human, before he was reincarnated. Although, this is only as long as the condition of "he was reincarnated" is true, that is." I take a deep breathe. I told him really a lot. I tell him that this is about everything I know about him [This is about everything, in short.].

Hearing my rather long answer, Liwa Fushiru tells me that it's already fine [Okay, okay. The rest can wait for another day......], and laughs for a little bit [Ha-ha-ha......]. Although, even with that said, he asks me one final thing [Well, there's one more thing that I want to ask you.]. He also tells me that that thing, surprisingly enough, isn't about Giichi [Well, like I said, the rest can wait for another day, but this question isn't about Giichi Hyoudou-sama, so it doesn't count.]. He asks me what that letter on my desk is [That letter on your desk, what is this?]. I guess it will be fine to tell him what this is, once I have seen what's in there. I tell him that I'll check what's in there, and I'll maybe tell him [Well, I'll check what's in that letter, and if it won't be anything classified, or anything personal, or anything of any kind of thing that I won't want to tell you, if all of these conditions will be true, I won't mind telling you what's in that letter]. So, I check what's inside that letter.

I see that this letter's writer is Giichi. Okay, so I probably won't tell this Liwa Fushiru what's in this letter. I continue, and check, and thus, I then start reading this letter. Hmm...... The letter that Giichi sent to me is like this:

[To: Maou Leviathan, Sakurako Leviathan.

Subject: Let's Settle Things Between The Two Of Us

I'll write things short and head-on. I want to settle things with you. Prepare things, and tell me where you decided it to be. That is, where we will settle things between the two of us.

How will we settle things between the two of us? If this is what you think to yourself (and this is), then wait a bit with that thought of yours, and don't worry, I'll explain everything in order.

Well, since this letter is about us and settling things between the two of us (like the title {Let's Settle Things Between The Two Of Us} says), I will get into how we will settle things between the two of us, right now. The answer is simple. You will decide how we will settle things between the two of us. Send me a letter with your answer, once you decided about everything.

From: Giichi Asmodeus. AKA: Giichi Hyoudou. AKA: Giichi Yerhze.]

I finish reading the letter. So he wants us to settle things? And more so, he wants me to decide how to settle things, and even where to settle things......? As I think such thoughts, I make a grin, and laugh a little bit, in a little bit loud voice. Then, Liwa Fushiru looks at me as if I was a weirdo or some freak, or something along the lines. Then, he asks me:

"What happened? Something personal? Something funny? It's funny, isn't it? Why is it funny? Tell me, please. What's funny? What's so funny in that letter that you read until a moment ago, that made you laugh in such a loud, not ladylike, not well-mannered, tones? What is it? If you may, please, tell me! What's in that letter?"

He just told me about a being loud, and now he's loud...... Although, I guess it actually doesn't matter, since it is about different things and all...... Well, I guess I can tell him what's in this letter...... Wait, no! As if I can! This is personal! But, well, he is beggin to me and all, so...... I guess I can tell him a little bit of what's written there, maybe......

I—Sakurako Leviathan—who is known otherwise as the Maou Leviathan—it is then, that I tell him:

"It's nothing special. It's just that I have had a little bit of a "fight" with someone, you could say, and now he sent me a letter, and he says he wants to settle things with me......" I say this while covering my face, which is probably looking weird, right now, with my hands. I continue for a little bit, and say. "Well......this is about it." I try to calm down, and take my hands off my face.

"—Is he special to you?" Liwa Fushiru asked me that. W-What is he asking!? Ahhh...... Liwa Fushiru continues and says. "Let me guess. It's a letter from Giichi Hyoudou-sama." Liwa Fushiru continues furthermore. "You know what? I'll guess the whole thing. You have had a little bit of a fight with Giichi, and it ended in him screaming at you to get out of his house, or something like that, and you got out of his house, yelling at him that you will make him pay for that, or something like that, and now, you've already changed your mind, since you are in love with him, and he sent you a letter, which in, he says that he wants to settle things with you. Although, what made you laugh is the part where he wrote that he wants you to decide how to settle things between the two of you, and also, furthermore, he also wants you to decide where to settle things between the two of you, and you thought of marriage, right away. Am I right? Just kidding." Liwa Fushiru might have been joking, but all of what he said was head-on. He cannot be joking. He must know it, somehow.

I—Sakurako Leviathan—who is known otherwise as the Maou Leviathan—I then ask him—Liwa Fushiru—how does he—Liwa Fushiru—know about what happened. I—Sakurako Leviathan—who is known otherwise as the Maou Leviathan—I ask him—Liwa Fushiru—like this, and use these words:

"How do you know about this?"

As I say this, currently, my face is red. I am so embarressed, that I want to die, really. I am the Maou Leviathan! Why should I, being the Maou Leviathan, be embarressed so much!? Not to mention, why should I, being the Maou Leviathan, be embarressed, at all!? This is all his fault! This is all Giichi's fault! Ahhh...... Then, he, Liwa Fushiru, answers my question:

"Well, since you know that I lied about me joking, I will tell." Liwa Fushiru gets up, and says. "I was near to Giichi Hyoudou-sama, when he wrote this letter." Liwa Fushiru pauses for a moment. He then continues. "Furthermore than this, I was sent here by Giichi Hyoudou-sama, to give this letter to you. Although, since I heard you were going berserk, I just put the letter near to your door and hid myself. But then, a little bit after that, since you are a Maou, you should have been able to calm yourself down, so I waited for a bit, and then I knocked again, and started talking a bit with you, since I always wanted to talk with you. Ahh, about how I know about what happened between you two, it is because of Giichi Hyoudou-sama, who told me everything, once I asked him. He's really nice person, isn't he?" Liwa Fushiru finishes his things with this.

Hearing what he, Liwa Fushiru, said, I laughed for a little bit. He really is the one who won't hide anything, and if you would ask him something, he would probably answer your question. I then tell him:

"That makes sense. It really does sound like something that Giichi would do...... That is, telling someone everything that happened, just because he asked him a little thing, which is related to something totally, wholely, else."

I laugh a little bit. In reaction, he, Liwa Fushiru, laughs a little bit, too, saying that it's really something that Giichi would do [That's so right. It is so fitting Giichi Hyoudou-sama to do things like that.]. We laugh a little bit. After laughing ourselves out, more than a little bit, he, Liwa Fushiru, wears a rather serious expression on his face, out of the blue.

"—But......do you really think that he would forgive you so easily? I mean, he did yell at you, saying a few things, which aren't understandable, and all...... I think that by settling things between the two of you......" Liwa Fushiru pauses for a moment. Shortly after, he continues and says, ".........he means to have a fight.........that will settle things, between the two of you.........once and for all........." Liwa Fushiru says this while looking down. He continues a little bit furthermore. "Nice as he is, once he is serious, he won't show mercy, not matter who it is." Liwa Fushiru wears a rather serious look on his face, once again.

Well, he is right. So I need to decide about where we will fight, and how we will fight......? He.........how does he want me to think of something like that!? While thinking about such things, I look down, at my house's floor's direction, or in other words, I look down. I wear a rather sad expression on my face, as I think of this...... Giichi......why would you want us to fight......?

I then talk to Liwa Fushiru:

"Liwa Fushiru, thanks. Now, I have understood what I need to......do......what I have to......do......what I must to......do......" I looked down, still, even while saying that. I continue. "If you may, please go. Come at another time, if you may. I need to prepare for my battle aginst Giichi...... I need to prepare for my fight against Giichi......" As I finish talking, Liwa Fushiru goes towards my house's door's direction.

"Well then......" Liwa Fushiru, as he is near to the door, pauses for a moment. He then continues, "......on another time......" Liwa Fushiru, while saying this, gets out of my house, out of my house's door, and after that, he, Liwa Fushiru, closes my house's door. I can hear the door getting closed. Although, I already averted my eyes, so I didn't see the door getting closed.

So after all......I will fight against Giichi......whether I want it or not......won't I......?

Afterword

Hello there! This is me, 兵藤 一誠, or as I really am called, Simon Rothman. As you probably may know, or not (and that's okay, totally fine), I am the author of this fanfiction (otherwise, what would I do here?). So......hello there......!

Wow. Just......wow...... I didn't think Volume 5 would be this good......! Well, you may see, but I omitted the Epilogue out of Volume 5. Why did I do this? Well......it was since I didn't really have any idea for what to write there. I mean, at first, I thought of writing some yet another one of these "Unknown, unrecognizable" scenes, but I don't have much time for that, and my other idea was something that is better fitting to the next Volume, Volume 6, which I'll talk about in a little bit later, and will write in due time.

What does the fact that I don't have much time for that have to do with omitting the Epilogue?

Well......since I have finally finished writing Volume 5, leaving only the Epilogue and the Afterword, I omitted the Epilogue. Why? Because they are parts that I want to finish writing at a go. So, if I don't have much time to finish the Epilogue, and the Afterword, so I'll have to choose one of them, and of course, I have chose the Afterword.

Also, since I've only started writing Epilogue since Volume 4, I don't see any critical need to write Epilogue at Volume 5, as well. It can wait to Volume 6, which, like I said, I will talk about in a little bit later, and will write in due time. For now, I want to focus on Volume 5.

So, you may have not noticed, but since I want to be as much as DxD-like as I can, as long as things aren't original, I have a few names that I made with some other names. They all appear on Volume 5. Such as the following: Seiichi, Yi Cheng, Dendrocon, Liwa Fushiru. I might miss some, but I don't think so.

Anyway, both the names Seiichi and Yi Cheng, are based off the name of the original Light Novel's MC, Issei Hyoudou, which plays a major part in this fanfiction. How? It's rather simple. Seiichi is written with the same Kanji like these of Iseei, but just with a reversed order. Issei is written with the Kanji for "One" and the Kanji for "True", while Seiichi is written sith the Kanji for "True" and the Kanji for "One". Yi Cheng is written with the same Kanji of Issei, in the same order, but in the chinese reading.

As for the two other names, Dendrocon and Liwa Fushiru, they are also based off names of characters of the series' original Light Novel. Even though with different methods.

Dendorocn's name is derived from the names of the same character's like the series' original Light Novel's, but, to make difference between them, I did something a bit different. The original series' Light Novel's Asmodeus, namely, Falbium Asmodeus, his name is derived from two characters from Gundam: G-Falcon and Dendrobium. What I did is simple. I reversed the order. Meaning, from "G-Falcon and Dendrobium", to Dendrobium and G-Falcon. After that, I took the characters of their names, that the original series' Light Novel' Asmodeus didn't have. In other words, I took Dendrobium's "Dendro", and G-Falcon's "con", and put them together, and I got Dendrocon. Simple, right?

Liwa Fushiru is a different case, like I already said. It was more complex, but in the end, I reversed Vali Lucifer's name's Katakana, once for his first name, and once for his last name, and I omitted some characters which change the reading, and I got Liwa Fushiru. Vali is written as Warii, so I reversed it and got Riiwa, so I omitted the unnecessary "i", and got Riwa, which is just like Liwa, a matter of preferance, if you ask me. His last name was a mess. I don't really remember already...... Anyway, for another thing about Volume 5!

The Prologue explained everything that happened ever since Volume 1's start point to Volume 4's ending. That Life 0 was pretty much amazing, in my opinion. In my opinion, I did really well at this Volume. Although, I do feel a little bit sorry and a little of regret about not writing the Epilogue, which would probably have another scene like the one in Life 0.

Life 1 and Life 2 were amazing, I have to say. Giichi's battles are always amazing me. I mean, Giichi is just so badass, so much that his fights become one of this fanfiction's main points. Giichi's battle, against Belial, was badass, just like I expected, and told you. Although, surprisingly enough, I did surprise myself with few things that I wrote in Volume 5, and got much better than I expected them to be, in their "final form", and they are two things.

The first one is Life 4: Hyoudou Meeting — Part 2. It was much better than I expected it to be. I have to admit. And I think that for that, I need to thank for a certain someone, and he is Fusion the Pawn, who talked with me while I wrote it, and I think that that is the reason for it becoming so good, that it exceeded my expectations.

The second one is Life 5: Her Feelings — Sakurako Leviathan. It was just too much better than I expected it to be. Seriously, I didn't expect it to be that good. Not at all. Although, for that, I don't need to thank for someone who talked with me while I wrote it, because no one talked with me while I wrote it. It's just that I had much more free time than usual.

Anyway......! Since this concludes everything there is to say about Volume 5, as a summary, now, finally, what you probably waited for, ever since I have wrote the couple of words "Volume 6"......! That's right......! Now, the moment that you probably waited for ever since the start of this Afterowrd......will be right now......! I'll write about Volume 6, right now......!

First things first, Volume 6 is going to be climax. I really forgot that when I wrote Volume 4's Afterword. That means that Volume 6 will have some really badass fight. And more than just some badass fight, a great character development will happen! Giichi will probably reveal to us a new side, or even some new sides! It's actually a rather letdown that I didn't manage to end this Volume, Volume 5, with a cliffhanger...... Or, wait a moment.........did I actually manage to end this Volume, Volume 5, with a cliffhanger.........?

Also, if I already mentioned "cliffhanger", Volume 6 won't end with a cliffhanger, probably, because Volume 6 will be this Story Arc, the second Story Arc's, last Volume, and from Volume 7 and on, the third Story Arc will begin. And as you know, ending a Story Arc with a cliffhanger is a little bit......weird, I think......

Anyway, right now, I don't find a lot of things about Volume 6, so you'll need to gather your courage, and ask me questions, and let me know that you are there, reading my fanfiction. Yes. So......I'll see you next time, and I hope you will ask me some questions, and tell me what do you think of my fanfiction, tell me where I mistook in some word's spelling, and more and more things like that. Just comment.

Also, by the way, this is a side note, but I'll say it, anyway: Since my PC doesn't have place ever since we fixed my brother's PC, there are two things, or rather, in other words, news. One good thing, and one bad thing. Or rather, in other wrods, good news and bad news. They are as the following:

First things first, and, well, I like to begin with the good news, so I will start with the good news. So, here they are. Are you prepared for this? Make sure. Okay. Are you good? Here it is. I tell the good news. And......! The good news are that my brother has a cracked Office, and with that, I'll be able to bring to you once yet again, PDF files!

After the first things, there will always be the second things, and, well, since the first thing is the good news, and the second thing is the bad news, I will write now the bad news. The bad news are that since there's only one PC, which is my brother's PC, and I mostly use the PC, my brother would take the PC for a while, every now and then.

Although, worry not! Falter not! Even with this said, I am using the PC, most of the time, and my brother would be using his Smartphone, most of the time, so there's no need to worry about it! Well then......with this said......this concludes this time's Afterword, or rather, in other words, this concludes this Volume's, Volume 5's, Afterword.

With this said, see you next time! Or rather than this......see you in the comment section!

Notes

  1. Each Shaku is 30.30 centimeters.
    In other words, 10 Shaku = 303 centimeters.
    303 centimeters = 3 meters and 3 centimeters.
  2. A Japanese kind of sword. A rather known one, actually.
