The Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 26
Well, one man’s fault is another’s lesson. Also, Mardu-sensei has magic power and came from a noble family, yet she became a teacher because of her family’s downfall. I deeply sympathize with her whenever I recall her story from the game; she was just a child when it happened.
“You won’t need to work that hard. The teacher praised your great magic power and said that the lessons will be easy for you.”
“Thank you, Mina. I just want to be prepared.”
Mardu-sensei also expressed her amazement in the letter. After all, the curriculum hasn’t put much focus on earth-attributed offensive skills so far. Despite that, sensei still thoroughly explained the attack variations that I’ve asked ‘out of curiosity’. Thank you, sensei.
According to the game, something that has a serious impact on the Empire’s downfall will happen at my first practical Magic Control class. It was the appearance of a demon.
When the Magic Control class starts at the practice field in the schoolyard, a powerful demon will appear. The heroine will have to join forces with the Prince, who rushes over at the news, to drive it back and awaken her magic power.
If you can’t clear this event, the Empire’s destruction flag will be triggered with no way to stop it. In the end, The Dragon King will attack the Imperial Capital and decimate it.
That’s why I have to try my best to clear this event!
…Or so I should say.
It’s been almost one month since I was reborn into this world and started studying at this Academy.
Will a demon really appear here…?
For hundreds of years, no demons have ever appeared at this Magic Academy, or should I say at the heart of the Imperial Capital. This event will be the equivalent of a large bear appearing and going on a rampage near Tokyo University’s Yasuda Auditorium in my previous life.
Just like there are bears in Japan, there are demons in this Empire. But these demons live in forests, mountains or lakes; they don’t come into towns. The Edo-no-Hana series dated back to the Edo period, but there weren’t any bears in them. I thought it might be possible to summon demons, but it seems like the techniques do not exist in this Empire. It’s said that such techniques once existed in the great Astra Empire, but the details are lost now. Astra was an Empire that existed in this area thousand years ago; it boasted a territory several times larger than the Yurigrand Empire, and was virtually the root of this Empire and the neighboring country. It’s something like the Roman Empire of earth.
That’s why I have no idea how a demon can appear here.
When considering how to clear this event, I thought about making up some excuses to arrange for armed knights to be deployed here; therefore unarmed students won’t have to fight a demon. But the game didn’t mention why the demon appeared, so I couldn’t come up with any excuses to make such an arrangement. If I just tell them that a demon will appear, no one would believe me. It’ll be like telling the Tokyo University’s administration that ‘There will be a bear appearing around Yasuda Auditorium today, so please arrange for a hunting party.’ It’s on that level of unbelievableness.
So, deploying knights was absolutely impossible. I’m worried about brother’s mental health if I tell him about demons appearing and such.
Also, using knights will be different from the game’s original plot; it might twist the fate, and some even more horrible catastrophe might happen in place… Just thinking about it scares me. It’s not impossible, you know!
That’s why… I just have to do what I can. I will repel the demon with my magic.
And so, Ekaterina, along with her class, went to the practice field.
E/N: Edo-no-Hana series – “Edo-no-Hana” or “The Flowers of Edo” was a phrase used to describe the finest features of everyday life, as experienced in the various districts of Japan’s Tokugawa capital during the mid-19th century [source: Wiki]. Basically, the series was like a travel journal depicting the culture, places and history especially in the capital, during the Tokugawa or traditional Japanese period.
