The First Chapter of the Final Battle: The Enemy of the Demon King—A Hero – translated by bunny_lover

How disappointing. How dare they call themselves heroes?

This was what I thought as I observed these people. These people turned into cowards when they caught sight of an undead army. When they realized that the undead army consisted of mostly low-leveled skeletons, they reverted back to their “heroic” selves, gleefully charging forward and slaughtering those skeletons. After vanquishing a few skeletons, their egos inflated so much it was as if they had already killed the demon king.

Whenever they discovered an abandoned house, they would rush into it to check if there were any valuable possessions left. Each one of them strived to be the first to go in, fearing they would miss out on grabbing valuable loot. If only they’re this motivated when they are fighting undead creatures!

Awaitsun and Illu are much better people than they are… No! Even Illu’s undead creature subordinates are ten times better than they are!

Prologue: Crusading Against the Demon King – translated by lucathia

“I’m so sorry. It’s all because of me that Sun, he… he became the Demon King.”

After speaking, Roland looked at the other person. Right across from him was Lesus Judgment, whose tightly-knitted eyebrows made Roland even more apprehensive. For him, this was quite an uncommon emotion. Ever since he had “died,” it had been a long time since he had had any strong fluctuations in his emotions.

When Roland finished speaking, other than scrunching his eyebrows together, Lesus did not make any other kind of move. This made Roland a little unclear about what he was thinking. Although he had his eyebrows knitted together, Knight-Captain Judgment usually had his eyebrows knitted together all day long anyway, so this matter could not be used as a basis for interpretation.

Roland could only sneak a glance at the other people. All of the Twelve Holy Knights were present… Except for the Sun Knight.

Epilogue – translated by Raylight

Everyone should be very puzzled over the cover this time, right? Who exactly is that black-haired fellow?

The answer is: The. Demon. King!

After reading the story up till now, everyone should also know who that is already, right? In order to avoid spoiling people who have first read the epilogue before the main story, I shall not say who exactly it is here. Everyone, after reading the story, you will know who it is!

The back cover is a little spoof.

Teacher Neo is the strongest one! (Yu Wo screaming as she raises the Number 3 board)1

I actually really like the topic of the demon king.

The demon king is really a very interesting character. Generally speaking, the demon king inside stories is always doing all sorts of evil deeds. Even if he has kidnapped a princess, he can still live arrogantly in a certain ancient castle and take things easy while waiting for people to send a punitive expedition against him.

I have always wondered, why would a country with a large army at their disposal never use it to get rid of the demon king? Their own daughter has already been kidnapped, don’t tell me that the king is not only fearless of the day that the demon king takes his head too, but would actually still allow the demon king to exist pompously?

If the demon king is really so strong that even the country’s army cannot kill him, then shouldn’t the demon king have long since destroyed the country?

Furthermore, the demon king in the legends seems to really like making long laughs like “Hahahahaha,” so even for this, I wanted to give a rational explanation… To say it in brief – Thinking too much!

Therefore, I have tried to latch onto a reasonable explanation for the demon king’s existence and even all kinds of deeds.

Why would the country tolerate his existence, why would the demon king have a ready-made sinister ancient castle, why would nothing happen even after kidnapping a princess, why would the demon king always have a bunch of loyal subordinates… Explanations to things like these, and so on.

Volume eight is also the last volume of The Legend of Sun Knight. When I think about it, I’m a little sad yet a little happy. Knight, this child, would finally soon become mature and ripe. (This sentence seems to include both Eastern and Western cultures?) The next volume will be very, extremely, exceedingly full of broken traditions, I guess?

The male main character of a first-person story has gone bad and become the demon king. What kind of story would this actually become?

Actually, Yu Wo herself is also somewhat looking forward to writing this main character who has gone bad. That will surely be a very interesting challenge!

Of course, the extra at the end was from a third person’s point of view. Hence, it looks like Grisia is really asking for a beating. However, from a first person’s point of view, one should be able to tell something is a little different. For example, you’ll be able to see his internal struggle and the like. Thus, he should not seem to be asking for a beating as much… Right?

Then again, it seems as if one of Grisia’s very famous traits is asking for a beating?

This time, he actually hit Judgment, a rare display of a little power of the main character. However, as the author was writing this section, her brain was filled with comebacks like “Grisia, this time you’re really dead. To actually dare to hit Judgment, you’re really asking for death” and the like.

As expected, the Judgment Knight has immense power… Even the author is scared of you! (Once the author had written the section of Sun hitting Judgment, she hurriedly packed up her stuff and fled.)

Footnotes

1 “The Number 3 board”: If you look at the synopses page, you’ll see the back cover mentioned by Yu Wo. On the back cover, Grisia, Roland, and Neo were drawn as the three choices for Demon King. Everyone in the picture chooses Neo as the one who should become the Demon King.

Seventh Shared Rule of the Twelve Holy Knights: “When the Sun Knight and the Judgment Knight Have a Falling Out, Follow the Sun Knight’s Commands – Unless the Sun Knight Has Not Upheld His Duty.” – translated by Raylight

Lesus looked at the documents with his head lowered. When he noticed something that was not within his responsibilities, he lifted his head up, wanting to ask Knight-Captain Storm out of habit. Instead, he discovered that Knight-Captain Storm’s seat was empty… He froze for a moment before remembering that Ceo had gone with Grisia to the Cathedral of the Shadow God some time ago.

He lifted his head up to survey the conference room. The fact was, it was not only the Storm Knight’s seat that was empty; many of the seats were currently empty.

At the moment, only himself, Ecilan Ice, and Aivis Stone were left in the Church. It was only when the three of them had to operate the Church by themselves, which was usually the joint responsibility assumed by all twelve of them, that they realized that the Church of the God of Light had so many devotees and branches, even though the Pope always lamented that the influence of the Church of the God of Light was far from what it used to be in the past.

However, who knew exactly how long ago the past that he mentioned was?

Roland’s face twitched and, gritting his teeth, he asked, “This is your question?”

“That’s right!” I replied matter-of-factly.

“‘That’s right’?” He roared with disbelief, “Why aren’t you asking questions such as ‘Why did I kill you’ or ‘Why did I betray you’?”

“Those are also good questions.” I shrugged as I spoke, “However, it’s a pity that I already know the answers to those questions. Why would I still ask?”

Roland froze and asked, “Y-You know?”
