Here’s your chapter of Sendai Yuusha for this week. I know, unbelievable, right? Enjoy.
Oh, and for anyone that doesn’t read Isekai Maou (there might be some that don’t), someone was kind enough to make a Discord Channel for me.

The Twelve Strong People
Deafening cheers resounded in Galarie’s arena.
This arena is able to accommodate several tens of thousands of people, but right now, greatly surpassing the capacity limit, and including the guests that were standing while watching, the audience was overflowing.
The audience was whirling with enthusiasm, but in contrast to that, only the center field of the arena was cold as if ice water had been tipped over it and had fallen silent.
In the center field, there was a group of twelve people.
They were the participants that would appear in the Magic Clad Martial Arts Demonstration.
All of them possessed exceptional talent, and were remarkable characters that attained the right to appear in this Magic Clad Martial Arts Demonstration.
There weren’t just Humans, there were Therianthropes and Dragonewts, and even the Asura Tribe was here.
Among them, there were four people that particularly stood out.
One of them was a knight that wore a shining gold heavy armor on his whole body.
A top naked man with long, red hair.
(T, to think that there was another one other than me……!)
A man with a black overcoat and a hood pulled over his head, and、
A man with a white overcoat that similarly had a hood pulled over his head.
Two men that wore overcoat outfits as if they were mirroring each other.
The black one, Yashiro Yuu shuddered yet bore a bit of affinity for that man that had a similar appearance to himself.
After learning the news of the Mazoku invasion from Lililuri who had inherited the name of the 『Witch of Time』, we called off meeting with Kaito’s Hero party and ended up roaming the town of Galarie.
It wasn’t like we walked about to play around.
It was in order to place marks at places that Mazoku would appear at by borrowing Lililuri’s power.
We did something bad to Kaito’s group who probably changed their plans to match ours.
Well, I would like to say that it’s all good because according to Lililuri, it was because of that that she was able to almost accurately identify the location.
And then, after greetig the morning of the next day, I was here in this arena.
I peeked over at the other participants.
Zappa of the Asura Tribe, as well as Kuon and Iibsal were looking at me.
Iibsal should be the only one among the guys here that know that I am the 『Darkness Executioner』 but……
……No, in regards to Zappa, it looks like he’s worried between me and the white one.
I wonder if that overcoat over there also has Recognition Obstruction Magic knitted into it.
As for Kuon, maybe because she is unable to recognize me upon investigating my smell and presence, her head was constantly tilting. Come to think of it, I never told Kuon and Bernadette that I was the 『Darkness Executioner』.
Sylvia saw through it in one try, but contrary to that, it was an unexplainable overcoat that was surprisingly strong. I guess I could say that is very much like Baa-chan though.
Still, they did a great job assembling this strong lineup.
The fox-eared Kuon and the top half naked Iibsal, the six-armed giant Zappa, the full bodied completely gold armor. There’s still more to go, you know?
A red scaled Dragonewt, an erotically equipped woman (big breasted) wearing a black high-leg leotard and full-face helmet, etc, etc.
It means that the only normal ones were me and the white overcoat guy.
(……No, I guess we’re not really normal either.)
It looks like the chuujibyou in me relapsed from the entry of the similarly clothed guy.
「っ……What’s going on?」
As I was thinking such things, the voices of the audience that had been loud up until now was raised even louder.
Damn, I thought my ears were going to go crazy. There are guys with a better sense of hearing than other people here, dammit! Rather, just what in the world is going on? Just how long are we (the participants) going to stand on top of this arena that is basking in front of the sun and getting hotter?
My question was answered right away.
「Hey, he~y! Everyone, are you all doing great~!?」
Maybe through magic, a woman’s voice that sounded as if it passed through a megaphone resounded in the arena without losing to the cheers.
When it did, the cheers roared again.
「Just like always, Galarie’s arena group’s exclusive hostess, Lavitt Sheafield has taken the stage~!」
That woman that was wearing clothes that had high exposure similar to a bunny suit appeared from the sky, landed in the middle of the ring that the other participants and I were in, and raised the mike that she held in her hand over her head.
The one that had an entrance as if a *Ban!* (Bang!) sound effect would be made was a bunny-eared woman.
This was today’s biggest cheer. I couldn’t tell what they were saying anymore. The enthusiasm was so wild, it looked like they had gone crazy half way through.
Still, I could understand the reason why their enthusiasm went that wild.
The bunny-eared woman that named herself as Lavitt Sheafield, the impact of those two hills that grew on that chest of her’s was incredible.
Everytime she hopped towards the audience while waving her hand, they would go *burun burun* and jiggle.
This is bad. If I were in the audience stands as well, I probably would have shouted until I lost my voice.
「Now~ then, it’s finally time for the start of the Magic Clad Martial Arts Demonstration’s main battles! The huge event where strong people chosen from every part of the world compete with each other with the seat of the World’s Strongest on the line!! This year is amazingly the 50 year anniversary of when this had first turned into an open exhibition! Furthermore, this will be the tenth year since the main battleground was switched to Galarie, and is a turning point year!」
「Even the gathered participants taking part of this commemorative year’s Magic Clad Martial Arts demonstration are greatly different from last year’s participants, and are warriors that enliven the world~!!」
「Well then, well then, let’s introduce those participants that you should pay attention to! A sparkling full body metal armor! His body is tricked out with supreme ruling metal!? The noble count of the Alcorde region, Montelugi the Third!」
The man that physically stood out even within the ring of participants due to his full body, sparkling gold armor brandished his giant shield that was also golden and answered the spectators.
Wait, hold on a second! When you say the supreme ruling metal, doesn’t that mean orichalcum!!
Orichalcum. Also known as the supreme ruling metal, among the metals used for arms, it is material said to be the strongest and the rarest in this world. If it’s used in the blade of a weapon, it would easily tear through even mythril, and if it’s used in armor, any kind of blade wouldn’t be able to pass through.
But however, that sort of thing is nothing but extra features for orichalcum.
The essence of orichalcum is its conductivity of magical power.
The conductivity of magical power, that is equivalent to a direct connection to the ease of endowing Abilities.
Starting with swords and armor, it is essentially a Herculean task to endow Abilities on such arms.
It’s because deviations would be produced in the arm’s strength and property by putting magical power into it. Artisans say that that reduction 『makes the core go bad』.
It is said that for the blacksmiths of Magic Swords, how many Abilities they can endow while keeping the weapon’s strength as it is is directly connected to their skill.
However, when it comes to orichalcum, it seems that 『making the core go bad』 almost never happens.
In other words, that shows just how easy it is to endow Abilities, and how it is possible to endow many Abilities on it.
Weapons made from iron could have one, steel can have three, and even mithril silver could have up to five abilities endowed, but for orichalcum, the maximum was twenty, already making it on a different magnitude.
The sole flaw with that orichalcum is that 1kg of it had an absurd price of several tens of millions of f.
To have a full body of that, moreover using even a large shield made of it……That’s already a cheat through the power of money. If they were to use orichalcum equipment, even an elementary school student could defeat a Wyvern.
「Sealing his fangs and claws that could tear even steel to pieces, the unique Dragonnewt that fights with the shield and mace that he holds in his hands! The Red Scaled Do Ijun!!」
The Dragonnewt with red scales raised their mace overhead.
A Dragonnewt that won’t use their claws or fangs huh……This is my first time seeing one.
Dragonnewts are said to never use weapons, and in fact, I’ve never seen one that does either.
The reason for that was clear.
After all, a Dragonnewt’s claws and fangs were sharper than normal weapons.
For one of those Dragonnewts to use weapons……Is it that? Is it some kind of binding play?
「Of the Fox Tribe with a fair complexion and golden fur, an unwomanly martial arts user! Kuon Heleott!!」
Oh, it’s Kuon.
The introduced Kuon pulled a talisman out from her pocket, and threw that high into the sky.
Simultaneous with when Kuon shouted that, the talisman exploded, and emitted light.
Red, yellow, green, and blue, various colors bursted out and then vanished. That certainly is fireworks.
What a performance. As expected of Jean’s acquaintance.
Kuon waved her hand at the excited audience.
Like this, the introductions continued, and Usagi-chan went and introduced several participants.
「An assassin from the royal family Crestolia! Other than their gender and the fact that they are a knight, everything is unknown! Is their weapon a sword? A spear? Or could it be that they use magic? A Knight full of mysteries that hides their face with a helmet! Ryuune Lenfe!」
A black leotard woman wearing only gauntlets, greaves, and a full face helmet as armor.
Even though a majority of the participants, including me, were standing in the arena in a state of having our weapons equipped, the woman called Ryuune didn’t have a single weapon on her.
There was Iibsal as an exception, but since he’s stronger unarmed, that can’t be helped.
Just how would she fight……
「She isn’t the only one that is a mystery! The one dressed in a white coat, just what kind of participant are they? The participant’s recorded name is 『Lightning Judgement』!!」
UWAAAAAAAH!! Goosebumps covered my entire body.
D, damn it, why is it that not just their appearance, but even their name is similar!?
「The other one, I guess this one is a bit more famous? The mysterious swordsman that agitated the front papers not too long ago, the one dressed in the black coat said to have defeated a gigantic dragon together with the Hero, that man’s name is 『Darkness Executioner』!!」
UWAAAAAAAAH!! They treated us as a settttt!! I mean sure, since both our appearances and names are similar, they would probably think that we were partners, but I graduated from this three years ago! I’m no longer a Chuunibyou!!
Moving on from me as I cried in my mind, the participant introductions continued.
「That deep crimson hair that is the mark of a royal family! The world’s strongest fistfighter has come to take the title of the world’s strongest! The Fist Saint, Iibsal Dora Gregoria Valanshel!!」
Iibsal raised both of his arms overhead.
The cheering of the female guests stood out.
……Pretty boys should die, no mercy.
Altogether eleven people. With this, there was only one participant introduction left but……
「Everyone, we’ve kept you waiting for a long time.」
Together with those words, *shin……* (silence……), the venue fell silent.
「With the number of weapons he can handle at once being six swords, and the emblem that he obtained being the reigning champion’s mark, the pennant winner of the Magic Clad Martial Arts Demonstration for four consecutive years! The second name given to him is, The Ashura Relm’s Zappaaaaaa!!」
He unsheathed the swords from their scabbards which were attached to his waist and shoulders.
Each one of them had different shapes, and every one of them were beautiful.
Those six swords that were most likely Magic Swords were bathed in sunlight and shined.
Cheers exploded. Thanks to that, my ears were ringing.
Ah, that little jerk Kuon, she was cleverly closing up only her ears.
……Still, I did think that he wasn’t an ordinary person, but to think that he was the pennant winner. Moreover, for four consecutive years.
Zappa whirled his six swords and magnificently sheathed them into their scabbards.
「The aforementioned were our twelve participants! Everyone give them a hand～!」
A warm applause poured onto us.
However, in between us participants, cold bloodlust was flying about.
「Let’s start killing each other right away.」
An atmosphere that seemed like it was saying that enveloped us.
