The highly respected Crimson Demons
Bakuen 3: Toranora exclusive short story
Intermediary TL: Lazy Donkey (怠惰驴)
This happened back when I was exploring Axel with Yunyun.
“Hey, aren’t those two Crimson Demons?”
“W-Wait, are you serious? Crimson Demons, you mean that clan of super powerful mages that even the Demon King’s Army is afraid of, right?”
We could hear such whispers coming from behind us as we walked past a certain street.
I maintained a calm appearance, and glanced at Yunyun beside me.
She seemed to be acting as usual, but I could see the edges of her mouth constantly twitching upwards.
I’m probably in the same state right now.
Behind us, the two men continued their whispered conversation.
“Speaking of Crimson Demons, every single one of them is an extremely skilled mage, and have mana far beyond those of regular mages.”

A constant clacking noise filled my ears.
As clumsy as Darkness is, she usually elegantly eats her meals without making a sound.
I don’t know if it’s because Darkness is nervous or something else, but she was being uncharacteristically noisy with her cutlery.
Currently, we are in the middle of dinner.
“Kazuma-san, could you pass the soy sauce?”
I picked up the bottle with my left hand and was about to pass it to Aqua when…
Darkness’ cry reminded me that my left hand was still chained to her right.
When I passed the soy sauce over to Aqua, Darkness’s hand was also dragged along with mine.

Underneath that hood of hers, the big breasted onee-san seemed to twitch.
“Wha…What did you say?”
“I said, please teach me that spell.”
I repeated myself to that onee-san.
The onee-san made a face more troubled than when I said I wished to conquer the world.
More troubled than when I asked for a way to grow my chest.
And even more so than when I asked her to make me into the Demon King.

Granting despair for these Upstarts!

“Give him back! The Schneider that I carefully groomed and raised… return him to me, you shitty NEET!!”
“I made it back to where you were before, so give it a rest already! I can’t help it if he’s dead! Schneider has gone to another world and is doing just fine. Who knows, he might even have defeated the Demon King and be having a parade thrown in his honour right now.”
The next morning.
As expected, Aqua started screaming at me in the main hall where we usually relaxed, upset over losing her carefully groomed character. And thus began yet another day.

With the air of someone who’s been given a very important mission, Aqua said.
“I have to tell everyone… I need to let everyone in the guild know…”
“W-Wait, Aqua, hold on a minute! Let me explain!”
Darkness has a daughter.
“First I should report to the guild lady, then I need to go to the people in Axis Cult, then I’ll visit the grocer, the butcher, the old lady next door…”
“Aqua! Don’t jump to conclusions! Would you take a closer look at this kid first!?!”
