Arc 1 ~Kazuha Axeplant’s Third Adventure: Chapter 1

Chapter 1 – What came to mind during my second time in another world was to for now, take it easy.

Deviation Value – It’s something to do with the Japanese education system, or rather, it’s a method of ranking academic achievement via standard deviation, but I don’t remember the specifics anymore, so you can google yourself if interested. Ah, also, high school etc. starts in April-ish for them.


『Gu… GUGUGUGU…!!!!』

Finally… I’ve finally defeated it…

『GuGuGu… GUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!!!!!!』

An ominous light shone from his body, and illuminated the Demon King’s palace.

Even with the ultimate weapons the 《Sinner’s Sword of Beheading Justice – Criminal Darkness》 and the 《Saint’s Sword of Judgement – Angel’s Blamer》, it took half a day to defeat it.

Everyone in my party except me was wiped out.

To think that I would have such a hard time in my 『second time』 around…

I, Ononogi Kazuto, am a normal high schooler, city boy.
I’m saying this myself, but I don’t have any abilities that excel in any way, and even my deviation value is in the lower-middle areas.
Lately I’ve been skipping my club activities too, and I’m an extremely healthy and normal high schooler that you can find anywhere.

Today, April finally began.
Somehow making it to my second year in high school, today as well, I left the house with my beloved light novels in my schoolbag.
In the neighbourhood was a crowd of children starting primary school today, all lined up.
Today was going to be the start of another completely normal day.

――Or so I thought.

I coincidentally turned my gaze to the opposite side of the line of primary schoolers.
There, stood a housewife.
I’m sure that one of the children in the line is her child.
Thinking that, I avoided the crowd of children, and was going to head to the bus stop beyond the crossing, but at that moment, something shone.

Wondering what was shining, I followed the light source with my eyes.
Huh…? Wasn’t it the housewife from earlier?
Something in the housewife’s hand was reflecting the sunlight into my eyes.
Straining my eyes, I tried looking more carefully.

There, was a single kitchen knife in her hand.

Sitting down on the spot, I caught my breath.

Just like the 『first time』, in the 『second time』 as well, I thought I had defeated the Demon King.
Charging into my 『second time』 while still holding all the strongest equipment, I easily defeated the Demon King with my comrades.

This time, for sure, I’d be able to return to my old world.

Unable to stop my heart from believing this, I was completely betrayed.

Immediately after I defeated the Demon King, the Demon King’s throne collapsed, and we, the 『Hero Party』, fell into the abyss.
Ah-, by the way, I’m the Hero. Yup.
I was the Hero during the 『first time』 as well, after all, and this time in my 『second time』, I’m the Hero as well. Aren’t I amazing?

Having fallen into the depths of the abyss, we, the Hero Party, came across an incredible monster.
This was the real last boss. That was the feeling that we strongly felt upon seeing its appearance.
Holding up our weapons, we began challenging the true 『final battle』.

And, the result was――

that with the exception of myself, my entire party was wiped out.
Though I was alone now, I continued to attack → avoid → heal, over and over, and over again.
After a few hours, I finally defeated it. I’m already worn out.

Something round and shining tumbled out of the mouth of the true Demon King.

“Geh-… Another jewel…?”

The 『first time』, I had splendidly defeated the Demon King.
Speaking of which, I was the only one left during that battle as well, huh?
And after I defeated the Demon King, a shining gem suddenly appeared at the throne he was on.
Clearly a 『Take this, and your story will end, and you will be allowed to return to your original world.』 type thing?
Naturally, I went and grabbed the gem.
And then for some reason…
The result was that I was thrown into the starting town 《Azerleims》, and began my 『second time』.
It’s not fucken funny, srsly.

“…What the heck do I do now?”

But… it really won’t happen again, right…?

The strongest equipment, the experience I’ve saved, gold, hidden weapons, hidden routes etc.
I had inherited it all for my 『second time』 and even defeated the 『hidden boss』 you know?
You’d expect that god would free me already, right?
From this unfortunate reincarnated life of mine…

…*

It was a mistake for me to have thought this.

◆◇◆◇

The morning of April 1st.

The housewife holding the knife.

The crowd of primary schoolers before my eyes.

“…An April’s Fools joke, or something?”

But seeing the housewife’s eyes gave me a shudder.

Those eyes, were serious…

“AAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!”

Letting out a weird cry and holding the knife tightly before her abdomen, the housewife charged towards the crowd of primary schoolers.

Oi oi… It seriously happened…?

“AAAAAAAAARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!”

There’s already no way to describe this except ‘going nuts’, and the housewife charged forward with a roar.

And for some reason, I,

jumped in between the the housewife and the primary schoolers,

and was stabbed through the heart.

…*

The end.

…*

…*

・・・

…*

…*

But when I opened my eyes, I was on top of a fluffy bed.
When I had a look around me, I found that I was in a room that I wouldn’t be able to see outside of the world of games.

“Oh? Have you finally woken up, Kazuto?”

An unfamiliar obasan was preparing food in the kitchen right beside me.

“W-, Where is this…?”

I muttered a natural question.

“My, my, are you still half-asleep? Honestly, isn’t today the important day that you’ll be having an audience with His Majesty? Wake up properly, and go wash your face.”

It was a line that I’d heard somewhere before.
Or rather, it’s definitely 『that line』 isn’t it…?

That was how my story began.

At the time, I still had no idea that there would be a 『second time』, though.

    1. He probably got invited to be a roaming floor boss by Anri-sama.

      Hmm? Wouldn’t he kill someone? No no no, he’s just sending them to another world it’s like a permaban option in case someone really annoy Anri-sama.

    1. Truck-san is not an evil god. Truck-chan is a mahou shoujo that is late for school and running with toast in her mouth. Bumping into the protagonist who is her fated lover who happens to be the MC.

  1. Most famous Japanese excuse to be killed, truck-san, is not guilty this time? How strange!

    By the way, most often used excuse doctors ever heard in emergency room in US, apparently, is There I Was, Standing In A Street Corner, Minding Own Business. Work for gunshot, knife-stab, headbashed…

    1. If the esteemed rabbit finds this too spoilerish feel free to remove this
      To summarize, normal high schooler walking home, gets stabbed protecting some primary schoolers from a craycray housewife. And wakes up in Dragon Quest III by his supposed “mom” to be a hero who will meet the king. He beats the demon king and gets a gem that acts as new game+. So he repeats this again killing hidden boss character which drops a gem for new game++.
