- Chapter 1 - Hero, Defeats the Demon Lord and Reincarnates
“That was splendid, Hero Eugene. Well done, You’ve defeated this Demon Lord Venomzard.“
I was in the Demon Lord’s castle.
In the collapsed audience chamber, a huge black dragon was lying on its side.
“To defeat me, the strongest and most feared of all. ‘O Eugene, You are indeed the strongest Hero in history.” [Demon Lord]
I lay there, sprawled out on the floor.
My body is in tatters.
The Holy Sword in my hands is covered in blood.
“Sigh~….Now, I can sleep peacefully.” [Eugene]
I don’t have any strength left to move my body anymore.
But that’s fine.
“O valiant one, are you that happy to have defeated me?” [Demon Lord]
“Yeah, because now….I can finally leave the Black Heroes’ party. In two ways.” [Eugene]
When I close my eyes, I’m reminded of the harsh days leading up to today.
[In order to confront the most powerful Demon Lord in history, we must raise the strongest hero of all time!]
The day the current King ascended to the throne.
A grand project to educate the hero began, with the aim of seriously vanquishing the
First, applicants were recruited from all over the country, educational institutes
were established, and they competed against each other there.
Then, the strongest ones were selected.
There, the strongest Sword Saint, Great Sage, Saint, and Fighter were chosen.
I had them, who are experts in every field, as my mentors and had them train me,
a candidate for the Hero.
After hellish training, I acquired the world’s strongest swordsmanship, magic, recovery
techniques, and Martial Arts.
After that, I set out on a journey to defeat the Demon Lord.
“I have been fighting and defeating enemies one after another almost 24/7 until ……now.” [Eugene]
By the way, my mentors followed me after I left on my journey.
They were watching to make sure I didn’t slack off.
“I see….That’s why you look like you’re on the verge of death.” [Demon Lord]
“But that’s all right. I’ve defeated the Demon Lord. Now the hero is relieved of his duties….” [Eugene]
My strength drained from my body.
I kept losing blood. If I don’t heal myself, I will die soon.
But I don’t have any magic power left.
“No, ‘O Hero. I’m afraid you will not be able to do that just yet.” [Demon Lord]
“…What…did you say?” [Eugene]
“The demon king’s army still remains. Therefore, your mission will not be complete until the
hunt for the remnants is over.” [Demon Lord]
That can’t be…..
No, I can certainly feel the presence of my mentors coming closer towards me.
They still intend to make me fight, even though I’m in such a shambles….
“‘O’ Hero, Shall I grant you your wish?” [Demon Lord]
“Eh….? What do…you mean….?” [Eugene]
“The sword saint, the God, the King of Spirits, the ones who have challenged me, fighting them was nothing but a trivial child’s play. But the battle with you is the most exciting thing I have done in a long time.” [Demon Lord]
The Demon Lord…..smiled innocently, as if he were a child.
“As a reward for entertaining me, I will use my power, to give thee, the peaceful life you desire.” [Demon Lord]
“As long as you stay in this world, you will never escape the constraints of being a hero.
Then, how about leading a different life?” [Demon Lord]
“You mean….like that reincarnation thing?” [Eugene]
“Indeed. [The Secret Art of Reincarnation]. In exchange for giving up your life as the Hero Eugene, you can gain your own newfound freedom. What do you think? [Demon Lord]
I couldn’t answer right away.
It’s not that I’m afraid of dying.
It was so hard every day, I wanted to die.
What I worry about is what will happen after I die?
What will happen to this world?
“Put your mind at ease. You’ve finished off most of the strong enemies. The rest are just a bunch of small fries hiding. Even without you, surely your friends will bring peace to the world.” [Demon Lord]
“I see….But still, I…” [Eugene]
“Eiiyy, What a vexing guy” [Demon Lord]
*Kwah!* The Demon Lord opened his mouth wide.
At that moment, a magic circle appeared under my feet.
“Wai-! I haven’t said ‘YES’ yet!” [Eugene]
“Farewell, O mightiest of men! Hopefully, we will cross fists again.” [Demon Lord]
The magic circle shone brightly and…… [Hero Eugene] disappeared.
