  6. Not Quite Like the Devil
  7.  
  8. There was just something alluring about an empty classroom after school.
  9.  
  10. It's common to see romantic confessions like "I love you... Kiss me," or stealing a girl's gym clothes here. But then again, this was just my imagination talking.
  11.  
  12. However, right now, in front of my eyes, was a strangely-clothed girl.
  13.  
  14. The all-black costume made her look like a villain of some sort, but skimpier; the exposed belly looked soft, and a black cape topped it off for some reason.
  15.  
  16. She seemed to be the same age as me... Perhaps she was one of the students at this school? But then, why was she wearing those... clothes instead of a school uniform?
  17.  
  18. It wasn't just her clothes that were weird either.
  19.  
  20. “….Err…Should I introduce myself?”
  21.  
  22. She then looked at a piece of paper and started mumbling unclear things, adding to her strange attire.
  23.  
  24. “…Uh…let me tear you apart…ah…no…wrong one…”
  25.  
  26. Hey hey! Didn't she just say something very terrifying? This was way too suspicious!
  27.  
  28. No, maybe me peeking at a girl inside an empty classroom is even more suspicious.
  29.  
  30. But wait a minute… This is justified!
  31.  
  32. Let's rewind a bit. After school was over and it was nearly evening, I rushed back into the classroom.
  33.  
  34. It’s all because I accidentally left my H-game there.
  35.  
  36. How could I ever forget the masterpiece of my collection of H-games, the “ Flanders Childhood"?
  37.  
  38. Then again, bringing an H-game to school was a problem on its own.
  39.  
  40. Anyways, I ran back to the classroom in a panic and arrived in front of the door.
  41.  
  42. After calming my ragged breath, I found something.
  43.  
  44. I could hear a girl’s voice somewhere nearby, probably from the classroom next door.
  45.  
  46. It seemed like she was talking to no one but herself, doing a monologue.
  47.  
  48. Maybe she was using the table’s corner to do exciting things.
  49.  
  50. I was really hoping that this would unfold into an H-Game scene, and wanted to sneak a peek.
  51.  
  52. ….No, thinking about it carefully, there was no justification for it!
  53.  
  54. Unfortunately, my expectations were crushed.
  55.  
  56. It was only a girl wearing strange clothing whispering something weird, and I was left speechless.
  57.  
  58. Just to be clear, wearing those kinds of clothes was definitely eye-catching.
  59.  
  60. But I think there was something else more eye-catching than her clothes.
  61.  
  62. And that was her overwhelming beauty.
  63.  
  64. Long and smooth black hair, a perfect cute face, bright and clear eyes, slender limbs, all the materials needed to be a supermodel were there.
  65.  
  66. She was such a beautiful girl that it wouldn't be strange to have a doll modeled after her. Even selling her underwear as separate merchandise wouldn't be strange.
  67.  
  68. Who was she anyways?
  69.  
  70. “Er….The Devil King I am… um, well….”
  71.  
  72. It seemed that I heard the word ‘Devil King’ or something.
  73.  
  74. Well, those clothes she wore looked like what devils would wear.
  75.  
  76. This school’s rules did not state ‘Go to school in cosplay and act appropriately‘, like at Comiket.
  77. So then…. Is she a member of the drama club? Maybe she’s practicing the scene where the devil king makes an appearance. But to even wear these kinds of clothes during practice, such devotion!
  78.  
  79. It would be better to leave her practicing, and leave quietly.
  80.  
  81. “…and then laughter….uehehehehe!”
  82.  
  83. “What kind of devil laughs like that? Surely not like ‘Uehehehehe’ ?! “
  84.  
  85. “Who, who’s there!!!”
  86.  
  87. Oh no! I accidentally tsukkomi'ed her weird laughter!
  88.  
  89. “…Well…Um…Sorry…I just want to know what you were doing…”
  90.  
  91. To get rid of this weird atmosphere, I opened the door, and hesitantly walked in.
  92.  
  93. I thought she would be angry at me peeping at her, but she was just quietly staring at me with a calm face.
  94.  
  95. ….How come?
  96.  
  97. If a girl as cute as this was staring at you, no matter what, it would make you feel a bit restless.
  98.  
  99. No no no no, please calm down, me. Up to this day, I have been receiving stares from many girls, have I not? There is no special meaning behind it.
  100.  
  101. Though it’s common in H-games to have those….
  102.  
  103. “….Ah! Right!”
  104.  
  105. The girl seemed to remember something, and smiled.
  106.  
  107. Suddenly, for some unknown reason, the girl turned her back on me.
  108.  
  109. And then she slowly turned back again…..
  110.  
  111. “You have come at the right time, O brave one! “
  112.  
  113. Declared the girl with a stiff and rigid tone.
  114.  
  115. Brave one?
  116.  
  117. What is this ‘brave one’?
  118.  
  119. Did that performance from before have this kind of thing?
  120.  
  121. “I have been waiting for this moment to come.”
  122.  
  123. She continued her speech, ignoring me, who froze in place.
  124.  
  125. What is this about? The continuation of that drama practice?
  126.  
  127. No, wait…
  128.  
  129. Those kinds of lines, they felt like they came out from anime or manga. This girl also called herself the ‘devil king’ before...
  130.  
  131. “Wu Nai….”
  132.  
  133. If it’s true, the next line would be….
  134.  
  135. “Mano is a Devil King-like.”
  136.  
  137. Eh? That’s wrong.
  138.  
  139. Correct one should be “similar to a devil”.
  140.  
  141. What kind of thing is “Devil King-like”?
  142.  
  143. That being the case, this was such an absurd manner of self-introduction.
  144.  
  145. It’s like when someone who wears a police uniform says, “ I’m a police-like.” It was entirely suspicious speech, and so I felt suspicious.
  146.  
  147. “…ah! No, it’s wrong! A mistake!”
  148.  
  149. She suddenly stopped using that pretentious tone of hers and began making “awawawa” sounds anxiously.
  150.  
  151. “Wait a minute, that one just now didn’t count! It’s Wu Nai the Devil King! The Devil King! Devil King yo!”
  152.  
  153. She waved her hands back and forth, while making corrections hastily.
  154.  
  155. What is this girl actually trying to do?
  156.  
  157. “Well… Can I ask you something..?”
  158.  
  159. I inquired to the girl who was still waving her hands.
  160.  
  161. “Yes? What? What is it? I’m a Devil King, what is it?”
  162.  
  163. “What kind of thing is ‘Devil King-like’? Doesn’t that mean very similar to, but not ‘Devil King?’”
  164.  
  165. “Wrong, wrong, I am really the ‘Devil-King’ yo? How could I say such a thing like ‘Devil King-like’?”
  166.  
  167. She quickly looked away, avoiding eye contact.
  168.  
  169. This girl….really wants to hide the past completely.
  170.  
  171. “But you just said that very clearly earlier.”
  172.  
  173. “Er…what do you mean? I’m a Devil-King yo. Like the flower named “Kill (Massacre) .”
  174.  
  175. “How could a flower justify you as the ‘Devil-king’ ?!”
  176.  
  177. Besides, there is no flower named “Kill (massacre)” !
  178.  
  179. “Because I am a devil, my hobby is killing with fragrances!”
  180.  
  181. The weirdness has doubled. But I’m too lazy and tired to retort.
  182.  
  183. “….In short, you are claiming to be the Devil-king....what for?”
  184.  
  185. “A good question…well..it’s….It’s to make the world mine!”
  186.  
  187. Even if you say that with a proud expression…
  188.  
  189. I don’t want to hear this kind of ‘Devil-King’ answer.
  190.  
  191. “So then…why are you acting as a Devil-King here?”
  192.  
  193. “Wha-whawhawat!? No, that’s not it! This is not acting!”
  194.  
  195. She started to panic and her expression changed back again.
  196.  
  197. “So….in order to escape the harsh reality of the world, you dressed as a devil to be one…?”
  198.  
  199. I want to destroy this disgusting world—that sort of feeling.
  200.  
  201. “No! I’m not that kind of unfortunate person! I am a real ‘Devil King’! A real ‘Devil King’! At the sight of me, 97 out of 100 people out there will say that I’m a Devil King!”
  202.  
  203. “What did the other three people say?”
  204.  
  205. It would be better if she said 100 out of 100 people.
  206.  
  207. Well, in short, this girl wants to prove her devil appearance is real?
  208.  
  209. “Well, that’s how it is. Now to continue after the greeting, er...”
  210.  
  211. Just as I thought she was going to continue, that’s when—
  212.  
  213. “…..what?”
  214.  
  215. She suddenly stopped moving.
  216.  
  217. “…..What else am I supposed to say?”
  218.  
  219. “How can I know that?!”
  220.  
  221. “Wa, wait a minute! I’ll think of something in a moment!”
  222.  
  223. “I think you should relax a bit more to make it easier to remember…”
  224.  
  225. “Un..well..? What is it again?”
  226.  
  227. “Is it something like, ‘’Please do something ‘dirty’ to me?’’ kind of thing?”
  228.  
  229. “Whawhawha!? I, I won’t say that! That… that kind of…”
  230.  
  231. The girl hurriedly took out her notes again and began reading them.
  232.  
  233. How should I say it, it’s really too easy to make this girl flustered and panicked.
  234.  
  235. I can’t help but think that she’s kind of cute.
  236.  
  237. No no, I'll get a severe headache if this kind of strange conversation continues. I'd be much happier if this was more of an H-game kind of dialogue.
  238.  
  239. “….this one….no, this one has nothing to do with relationships….um….”
  240.  
  241. “Ah this one! Even if I’m eliminated, there will be the second and the third Devil King and even more will appear--!”
  242.  
  243. “That one is for when the Devil King is overthrown….”
  244.  
  245. “….is it this one then…Who ate my pudding without permission!!”
  246.  
  247. “There are such lines too!?”
  248.  
  249.  
  250. Besides, when would that line be needed?!
  251.  
  252. Furthermore, if you don’t want your pudding to be eaten, just write your name on it!
  253.  
  254. “Oh, I know! No problem. Everything’s OK. Okay, I’m going to say it!”
  255.  
  256. The girl put away her notes and cleared her throat.
  257.  
  258. “Er…the brave one…brave one… brave… that’s it, what is your name?”
  259.  
  260. “Name? My name is Morii Souta.”
  261.  
  262. “The brave one Morii Souta….too long. Under these circumstances….Only 4 letters. Can I shorten it?”
  263.  
  264. “Oh…That’s fine.”
  265.  
  266. “Sentai Hero!” { This is kind of a word play. And I suck at it . }
  267.  
  268. “What kind of nickname is that!!!”
  269.  
  270. “Wh...? What? What should it be then?”
  271.  
  272. “Hm…calling me Souta is good enough.”
  273.  
  274. “Well then…Souta the brave --- I am the highest rank devil in this world, making humans tremble in fear and awe, the Devil King Mano!”
  275.  
  276. “Oh, so you’re Mano.”
  277.  
  278. “…..er, that….What kind of reaction is that? I’m the Devil King, you know? The dark side you know? The so called bad guys in your point of view! Don’t you hate me now?”
  279.  
  280. This girl called Mano started pouting with a ‘mu mu mu’ kind of sound, looking unsatisfied.
  281.  
  282. Maybe she wanted me to play along with my role as the hero.
  283.  
  284. But I don’t have any intention to play along. Why should I act that way?
  285.  
  286. “So then… can I go back now?”
  287.  
  288. “Going back….? The devil king is in front of you, but you calmly choose to run away? The reputation of the brave one is surely as low as the ground….! So then… to make this world mine, it’s only a matter of time!”
  289.  
  290. “So that’s it. Good bye—“
  291.  
  292. “Wa, wait a minute! If you really are going home, it would be troublesome for me! I still have things I want to say to you!”
  293.  
  294. Mano immediately tried to make me stay.
  295.  
  296. “But I want to go home immediately, and stand stark naked in front of my computer.”
  297.  
  298. “What are you going to do naked in front of your computer!? A, at least hear me out first! Being a hero, you should at least care for the world right?”
  299.  
  300. What, it’s like those so-called appeals to morality.
  301.  
  302. “Don’t you want to have a battle with the devil king? This kind of ‘game’ play.”
  303.  
  304. “Okay, okay I’ll do it…huh? What kind of ‘game’ though ? Knowing you, it can't be good! Especially the way you said it at the end, it worries me.”
  305.  
  306. Mano released a sigh of relief.
  307.  
  308. “So…in other words, you want me to say hero-like lines?”
  309.  
  310. “That’s right, you truly are the hero!”
  311.  
  312. “But to be abruptly called the hero, I feel so weird.”
  313.  
  314. “You ARE the hero!”
  315.  
  316. “No, but…”
  317.  
  318. “You are the brave one! A hero IS a hero!”
  319.  
  320. I never thought she would be so unreasonable.
  321.  
  322. Now that’s she’s acting like this, it’s my turn to say something.
  323.  
  324. “…..Now that I think about it….The clothes are fine, but Mano, your acting skill is completely a no go.”
  325.  
  326. Up to this day I have conquered various H-games, good or bad, that’s why I’m very picky with lines or dialogue.
  327.  
  328. “Wh, wha... Then, what should I do?”
  329.  
  330. Unexpectedly, she reacted immediately.
  331.  
  332. “Okay first of all, take off your clothes one by one.”
  333.  
  334. “Whawhawha what!? Wh, Why must I take them off one by one!?”
  335.  
  336. “Oh! So you want to strip it off all at once!”
  337.  
  338. “Why did you interpret it that way!? I won’t do that kind of thing! Definitely not!”
  339.  
  340. Her cheeks flushed red, Mano waved her hands angrily.
  341.  
  342. “So yeah…. Like this, it’s the so called ‘baiting’.”
  343.  
  344. “Yes, these are more like Devil King lines!”
  345.  
  346. “I feel that those are completely different though….”
  347.  
  348. After Mano said that she made the ‘Look at me seriously’ Devil-king like expression, crossing her arms in front of her chest.
  349.  
  350. “So….Souta the hero! Do you hate this Devil King? “
  351.  
  352. “No, it’s not like I hate you, but it’s more like ‘suspicious’ ….”
  353.  
  354. “I will ask you one more time. Do you hate this Devil King….?”
  355.  
  356. “Huh? Of course not…”
  357.  
  358. “I will ask you one more time. You hate this Devil King, don’t you..?”
  359.  
  360. “H, huh? I told you I don’t ….”
  361.  
  362. “I will ask you one more time. Do you hate this Devil King….?”
  363.  
  364. “I hate you! The more I think about it, the more I hate you!”
  365.  
  366. In the end, I gave in. This kind of “NO” way out was what people hate.
  367.  
  368. She forced me to say it, and even more her expression of ‘You really do’ was very annoying.
  369.  
  370. “Is that so…You really hate this Devil King who’s going to destroy this world…..! Kekekeke!”
  371.  
  372. “How come the laughter is like that in the end!?”
  373.  
  374. “Huh? ‘Kekeke’ is weird? How about ‘ Uguehehe’ ? “
  375.  
  376. “This is getting indecent….”
  377.  
  378. “Is that so? Then what should it be like?”
  379.  
  380. “Well….I think ‘Mwahahaha’ is much better.”
  381.  
  382. “Mwahaha….Mwahahahaa! This one is good! So it’s like this!”
  383.  
  384. Mano made an ‘oooo’ expression, like she wholeheartedly agreed. This Devil King, she doesn’t even know the very basics of evil laughter?
  385.  
  386. She used my recommendation and turned to me.
  387.  
  388. “Souta the brave one….I commend you to finally arrive at this place...but with that level of power you wish to oppose me, Mano the Devil King….? Mwahahaha! Mwahahaha!”
  389.  
  390. “Now you use that ‘Mwahaha’ as you want huh….”
  391.  
  392. It seems that she is very happy to use this kind of laughter.
  393.  
  394. “You’re such a moron mwahaha! Like a weak child, I can use one hand to crush you easily mwahaha! But doing it like that won’t be fun at all mwahahaha!”
  395.  
  396. “Well… It seems that it has become a habit for you to end every sentence with that ‘mwahaha’ huh..”
  397.  
  398. It seems that she didn’t hear me.
  399.  
  400. “Okay…this time I will let you off….Souta the hero! Become stronger, and one day return to find me, the Devil King! I will be looking forward to it! Take care of your feeble life! Mwahahahaha! “
  401.  
  402. After she finished laughing, Mano the Devil KIng made that ‘There you go!’ expression proudly.
  403.  
  404. “O…Okay…”
  405.  
  406. “……….”
  407.  
  408. “……….”
  409.  
  410. “……….”
  411.  
  412. “……….”
  413.  
  414. For some unknown reason, she just stood there and smiled.
  415.  
  416. Now then, what to do now.
  417.  
  418. For a moment, both of us just looked at each other trying to see the other’s reaction…..
  419.  
  420. “…….well…..that’s it….”
  421.  
  422. Said Mano with a somehow troubled expression. Her voice became docile.
  423.  
  424. “What do you mean, ‘That’s it?”
  425.  
  426. “Um, I mean, don’t you think it’s time to leave?”
  427.  
  428. “Oh? I can go now?”
  429.  
  430. “Oh, okay, let me say it once again. Take care of your feeble life….”
  431.  
  432. “No! You don’t need to repeat it anymore! I understand! I completely understand!”
  433.  
  434. Because I felt like the weird atmosphere would return, I hastily stopped her.
  435.  
  436. “Is that right? I was hoping that you would understand it immediately though. Or kicking you out forcibly is better? Though I considered that option to be the last on my list…”
  437.  
  438. Mano began to speak to herself, trying to get hold of the problem.
  439.  
  440. “Er…I’ll go back then.”
  441.  
  442. “Ah, wait a minute! Don’t go!”
  443.  
  444. “But you just told me to go back!”
  445.  
  446. “Since it’s a rare opportunity, I’d like you to tell me which part’s good and which part’s no good.”
  447.  
  448. And then Mano, with a very cute voice asked me, “Please”.
  449.  
  450. Surely, surely something good will happen!
  451.  
  452. Since she had gone so far as to say please, I can’t say “everything is a no go.” It looks like it’s better to give her some constructive answers.
  453.  
  454. “That….That is if your voice can be a bit more evil for a Devil King, it would be better. After all, your voice is way too cute for it.”
  455.  
  456. “Ah! Tha, that, saying my voice is cute…! This kind of thing, to be told directly, it makes me feel a bit embarrassed….awawawa!”
  457.  
  458. [img]http://i.imgur.com/Pf2aohp.jpg[/img]
  459.  
  460. Mano then made that kind of ‘Really, I just don’t know what to do with you’ kind of shy face.
  461.  
  462. Truth is…. It’s not a praise or compliment; it’s just that you don’t sound like the Devil King at all.
  463.  
  464. “Also, summoning that kind of tentacle monster, and ordering it to wrap around your body, and using its tentacles for that ‘no go place!’--- I think it would be much better.”
  465.  
  466. “Whawhawhat!? Why would the Devil King be treated that way! It’s way too strange!”
  467.  
  468. The shy Mano started to get angry.
  469.  
  470. Since that was a story line from an H-game.
  471.  
  472. “Anyways that’s it, I’m going back now…”
  473.  
  474. “Ah, wait a minute! Don’t go!”
  475.  
  476. “Just when are you going to let me go back?”
  477.  
  478. “I accidentally forgot! Souta is not the hero yet!”
  479.  
  480. “What the hell are you talking about now!?”
  481.  
  482. I’m totally confused right now.
  483.  
  484. At that time, she took out some sort of cellphone, and with a ‘click’ sound took a picture of me.
  485.  
  486. “Eh..after taking the photo…send….”
  487.  
  488. “….why did you take a picture of me…?”
  489.  
  490. “With this now Souta can truly be the hero.”
  491.  
  492. “So after taking a photo of me with a phone, I’m allegedly a hero!? There is some sort of registering system!?”
  493.  
  494. “No problem, the camera is high resolution.”
  495.  
  496. “That’s totally unrelated!”
  497.  
  498. Then again….
  499.  
  500. If I were to ignore the method of me becoming a hero, why did the devil have to come and register me?
  501.  
  502. “Now then the registration is all done; try hard to defeat the devils.”
  503.  
  504. “Huh? Defeat the devils?”
  505.  
  506. “Um! I don’t know when it will happen, so take care.”
  507.  
  508. “Eh? A hero?”
  509.  
  510. “Yup! Then, good bye….! Until we meet again mwahahaha….!”
  511.  
  512. “O….o…”
  513.  
  514. I was wondering what heck just happened, while walking out from the classroom.
  515.  
  516. In the end, what does that girl want to do?
  517.  
  518. Did she just want me to play the hero, as practice for her Devil King act in a drama?
  519.  
  520. Or just some sort of a game in the real world to deepen a relationship like a girl falling in love..?
  521.  
  522. Well even if she’s cute, in all other aspects the girl just spells out trouble.
  523.  
  524. Ah, that’s right. I can trick her to get her more into the H-game story line. For example, telling her to expose her underwear to make her Devil King persona better.
  525.  
  526.  
  527.  
  528. I was thinking those sorts of thoughts while going home.
  529.  
  530. However…..
  531.  
  532. At that time, I was yet to realize the most important thing. I completely forgot to bring back my H-game!!!

  536. {A ROUGH translation from the image above. I’m dead tired so expect mistranslations.}
  537.  
  538. It’s time to ask the Devil King’s Note corner (1)
  539.  
  540. Starring the lines from the Devil King and the hero (or sort of!)
  541.  
  542. When the Hero reveals “I don’t like Summer or blistering hot weather”
  543.  
  544. Mano : Let me use the infernal hell fire to burn you!
  545.  
  546. “It’s noon already! When are you going to wake up!” sort of speech was said by the Hero’s like a mother during holiday.
  547.  
  548. Mano : Who is that person…..to be so cheeky…and dare to disturb my sleep…
  549.  
  550. When the Hero began to take off his pants.
  551.  
  552. Mano : Oh? Let me take a look to check {try to guess what she says :D }
  553.  
  554. When finally the Hero’s pants was taken off already
  555.  
  556. Mano : Hm…Only at this level huh…. {OUCH!}
  557.  
  558. Souta : ‘The hero taking his pants off’ This hero is so weird!!![/spoiler]
