Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 204


204. The conclusion of the battle

“You see, at that time, even though I was scouting, I can’t help but to get a coldー sweat! Though, the maid who was watching it with me didn’t change her complexion atー allー”

“And?! What happened in after that!?”

“Was it the end for one of the winning candidates!?”

“Well, maybe? I mean, the opponent was also a winning candidate, wasn’t it…?”

On the night of the second day, I was listening to the results of the reconnaissance while eating dinner. Yachigusa-san, who was the first to report, reported the results with a sense of realism. Perhaps it was because, she was a member of the drama club. The girls listening were also excited in hearing the story.

Well, for me, it doesn’t matter who won. If possible, I want them to fight to the limit and exhaust themselves, while I’m resting, recovering my energy, so when I meet them, I can easily win.

“Wellー, when I saw that scene, I thought that Kaizuka-kun’s victory had alreaーdy been decided.”

“Hmm? Wasn’t it?”

“Listen! As expected, Daikuji isn’t called as a winning candidate for nothing. Soー…”

After saying that, Yachigusa cleared her throat,

COUGH!! COUGH!!

and started talking again.

◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆

“Chargeー!!”

The girls in the back started to move with the signal given by Kaizuka. 

The other group who just joined the battle, even though they were from another team, they were following Kaizuka’s instructions. And their team’s leader, he just stood quietly without saying anything.

“Huhー, with this it’s been decided, riーght? What do you think?”

“They’ve been driven to the corner.”

“Right~”

Miu talked to the girl in the maid outfits next to her. To be honest, she didn’t expect to get a reply. Same as Miu, the girl thought that the match had already been decided. Daikuji’s team was being ambushed from behind, and now they would be needed to fight twice as many people. Even if this was prevented, Daikuji’s side would be still at the number disadvantage. 

In the end, the battle will end in the fact that the number surpasses the quality. 

Miu was already thinking about how to counter Kaizuka’s team and his alliance, as it would be twice the strength, rather than the game itself.

However, Miu’s brain had stopped working, or to be exact, forced to stop. The reason was because she saw a big body prevented the girls who were approaching from behind.

“Eh……?”

“Huh?”

At the same time as Miu made a surprised voice, the girl next to her raised a voice too. However, although they made similar voices, they didn’t see each other, but on the battlefield.

“Fuhahaha! Here, it’s a hug! Happy?!”

Daikuji was hugging the two girls who were running at the front. It was a something that no one was thinking would happen in this King of Boys.

“Well, I was stunned for a moment. I didn’t think you had another group under your control. I thought only someone like Ouza who would do that. I couldn’t imagine that the masked man who was looking down on the other than himself would rely on other forces. “

While still hugging the girls, Daikuji said so.

No matter how big Daikuji’s body might be, it would still impossible for him to embrace seven girls at the same time. However, the legs of the girls who were about to attack had clearly stopped, sticking to Daikuji. At the end line of sight of the girls hugged by him were thick arms. 

The girls weren’t rampaging at all… they were letting themselves hugged quietly. On the contrary, their expression was as if they were slowly melting.

“Aaah, to be hugged so tightly like this!”

“Kuh! Do you think I’ll fall with just this…! But maybe, this isn’t bad too…”

Of course, there was a reason why the girls weren’t rampaging. 

But more than that, they couldn’t just go wild and injure a boy in the process. As the common sense in this world, “Protect the boys, don’t hurt them”. 

Therefore, they couldn’t forcibly unwound themselves. In addition to that reason, being hugged by a man could be said as a rare experience in this world. More over if it came from an elite boy who was selected as the finalist of this tournament. Even more, and in addition to that, it was a hug from a super rare muscular boy, so of course the girls would savor the taste as much as possible. That was just what an adolescent girl would do.

“Kukuku. Alright, I’ll let you go, but if you keep it quiet here, I’ll do it again later.”

Daikuji said so and let go the two girls.

And the girls? They fell quietly on the spot. 

After seeing it, Daikuji looked at the other girls. And while opening his thick arms wide, he said…

“So, what about you?”

It wasn’t the girls who responded to the words, but Kaizuka, the other protagonist of this battle.

“Wha-wha-whattt! What a shameless man!  And you dare to aim for the King title!? Aren’t you embarrassed with yourself!?”

“Nuhahaha! Only that naive Hatano who would say something like that! I never thought it would come from the masked man who uttered insulting words! But what I did was to protect my members!…Well, so what about you!? “

The girls were somewhat confused by Daikuji’s words. But after they looked at their leader and Daikuji for a few times, they began to tighten their facial expressions as if they were determined and started to walk. 

….But the direction…it wasn’t to the girls of Daikuji’s team, but to the Daikuji’s wide open thick arms.

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 203


203. Daikuji vs Kaizuka

Daikuji and Kaizuka, two of the contestants who were said as the winning candidate finally met. It could be said that this battle would be the first head-to-head game in the King of Boys. The arm of the cameraman who was shooting this battle, was of course full of power. The feeling that each other’s girls would do their best to overthrow the other was transmitted to the surroundings. 

The facial expressions of the boys who lead the members were in contrast. Daikuji was smiling, while Kaizuka was watching the situation without any expression. Perhaps some might be skeptical with how different the masked man on TV and now, because of his quiet appearance.

“You don’t have to panic. We’ve more numbers! Use this advantage to fight!”

As Kaizuka said, the number of girls on his side was 6 and on Daikuji side was 4. Although Daikuji might be preferred to be in offensive position than defensive position, he wasn’t stupid enough to attack someone’s base leaving his own unprotected on the second day when it was expected to be a rough day. Therefore, two people were left at the base, and when someone came to attack, it was decided to contact them promptly and they would withdraw immediately.

“Hahaha! But we’re more strong, I’ll let you taste it!”

However, even with that numerical advantage, the members of Daikuji’s team couldn’t be defeated. More than that, it looked like Kaizuka’s side was the one being pushed. Some of the girls in Kaizuka’s team, were moving into the place where they were being pushed and pushed them back. They somehow repeating this to keep the balance. 

At first glance, the girls on Daikuji’s side seemed to be more capable than the girls on Kaizuka’s side, but that wasn’t the case. The difference was due to what the boys chose for their team. 

The criteria that Kaizuka used when he was choosing girls for his team, was to have a gentle personality and brave. Of course, he also considered the girl’s intelligence and athletic ability. The problem was that when he was choosing the girls, it was before the TV program where he declared as the masked man. So, it was before he had that ‘Persona’, that was why he chose girl who seemed unsuitable for battle.

On the other hand, the selection criteria for Daikuji’s team were athletic ability and physical beauty. 

It could be said that this difference in selection was what made the difference in the war situation. However, you could say that there was no right or wrong in a selection method. In fact, there was a team that was decided with weird and strange process, such as the selection criteria for groups that already got two jewels. 

However, in a head-on collision on flat ground like this time, it could be said that Kaizuka’s side was at disadvantage.

“Nuhahaha! It looks like you’re doing your best, but it’s only a matter of time! I think, if you quietly admit defeat now, you won’t have to expose your weak appearance to the TV, how ‘bout it?”

“Shut up…! I… the masked man can’t lose! It’s from here!”

“It’s a good spirit, but you see…”

Daikuji said so while watching the war situation progressing in their favor.

“That’s…! Right!”

“I admit the spirit, but!”

“Our feeling to win is unwavering!”

“… Yeah, can’t you feel it?”

The members of Daikuji’s team could still talk even at numerical disadvantage. 

Even so, Kaizuka was still able to return words to Daikuji, without changing his expression.

“You… no, it’s you and the other’s bad habit…”

“…What?”

“You, Ouza, and the guys who had a good reputation are generally underestimating the other contestants.”

The words of Kaizuka made Daikuji had a blank look on his face.

“That’s it…”

“Mmm… I don’t understand what you mean though…?”

“I’m saying that looking down on other than yourself will lead to defeat!”

SNAP!!!

Kaizuka snapped his finger. 

At that moment, a new force appeared from behind the Daikuji. It was another group including the boy. Seeing those seven people, Daikuji was taken a back. And it wasn’t just Daikuji, but his members as well. Sure they didn’t have that much of a hard time if it was only Kaizuka’s team. 

As expected, an attack from behind with the same number of people as the one in front of them, even as a surprises, it was really unexpected. 

If they lost the battle, these people would definitely go to their base and take the jewel. In other words, if Daikuji’s team couldn’t manage this adversity, their defeat was almost decided.

Kaizuka talked to Daikuji who suddenly stopped moving.

“He promised me to cooperate before the battle began. The reason he cooperated was that he was impressed with my words on the previous TV program and wanted to make a friendship…. In other words, Daikuji, you were dealing with not just my team, but two teams from the beginning! “

Members of Daikuji’s team were trying to protect Daikuji, but members of Kaizuka’s team prevented them.

“Don’t get in the way!”

“Your opponent is us!”

“Daikuji-kun! Run away!”

Daikuji didn’t react to the worried words of his teammates.

“Well, sure the members you gathered are strong. I also understand that you’re confident in yourself. But… that doesn’t mean you’ve won! Your defeat… it’ll be because you underestimated us!”

That said, Kaizuka signaled the assault.

…… If there was a real masked man, Kohaku, here, he would have been furious at this development. It wasn’t because Kaizuka formed an alliance or because his team attacked from behind. It would be because Kaizuka had become too honest.

If Kohaku saw him right now, he would have said,

『”If you role-play as the masked man, you need to laugh loud and curse at your enemies while attacking them! What’s with that hero-wannabe act! Do it properly!”』

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 202

This CH is from Miu Yachigusa POV


202. Reconnaissance

“Ayayaー you’re fullー of spirit, aren’t you?”

On the second day, it was predicted that other teams would make a move, so Miu Yachigusa, who had been scouting, was keeping watch over a cottage she found. 

Miu thought that it was fortunate that it was one of the winning candidates’ cottages. It was the cottage of Kou Daikuji. 

Miu quietly followed after seeing the Daikuji exiting the cottage. 

From Miu’s eyes, he was full of fighting spirit, and the girls around him seemed to be inspired by it, and their morale seemed to be high. Even if they were far away, she could see how strong they were, and Miu felt that it would be difficult for her team to fight his.

But, it seems that they don’t have any weapons…

As far as Miu saw, it didn’t look like the girls in the group were armed, nor was Daikuji, even though they said they were going to fight. And that, what differentiate their team and her. 

Even though in our team, there’s someone who brought a leg-hold trap, smoke screen, stun rod, and sword.

Miu didn’t think the weapons that the other girls in her team brought was supposedly what an ordinary high school girls should bring. 

Even though I’m a member of a club called as ‘the Military Club’, but I’m still just an ordinary high school student. That’s why, I didn’t bring any special weapons… or am I the strange one here?

Miu was worried about her team, but apparently, she started to believe that the strange one was her team.

While keeping a distance, Miu was following Daikuji’s team quietly so that they wouldn’t be noticed. 

As long as you follow the road, you would reach the cottages of another team. And Daikuji’s team was following the road. 

Since they’re following the road, it seems that his team isn’t going to make a surprise attack Perhaps it’ll be the first head-on collision since the start of the King of Boys. Well, my team has already won two victories, one is a surprise attack and the other is a lucky? victory.

Based on what Hatano-san said, it seems that he finally got it after doing some sort of discussion? Probably the leader realized his defeat to the charisma of Hatano-san, and then voluntarily offered the jewel?

…..As expected, Hatano-san is the best

Miu thought that the title of ‘King’ was only suitable for the one who could win without fighting. 

And so, she decided to do her best for him hoping she would get compliments from Kohaku. Ultimately, her goal was to be his bride in the future.

It’s about time you can see the cottage of another team…

And so, Daikuji and his team arrived at someone’s cottage. However, the opponent was also aware that the enemy was coming, and that person’s team was taking a position outside the cottage before Daikuji’s team even arrived. And that person…

“…Really, for you to came here… what an unlucky person. The only person who is suitable for my opponent is… the one who has won over the other teams.”

It was the masked man, Kaizuka. 

Kaizuka distorted his extremely ordinary face as if he was disgusted at Daikuji. However, Daikuji returned it with a smile without worrying about Kaizuka’s words at all.

“Nuhahaha! Don’t say that… You see, I’m the type who eats from what I like first! Well, sure this might be just a coincidence, but look! My muscles are pleased with this situation.”

Daikuji showed the biceps of his arm as if to prove his words. The girls were looking at the brilliant curves, regardless of whether they were friends or foes. However, his muscles didn’t impress Kaizuka at all, as he looked at Daikuji with a look of contempt.

“I’m sorry. but I’m not interested in muscles. It’s really unpleasant.”

“Hmmph, what a cold man, a party pooper… But what’s it… somehow your atmosphere now and you in that video, is different?”

“…T-That’s not true.”

“Well, I mean, I can’t feel the confidence you showed in that video from you now. You just feel like a small fry!”

“I finally… could be my true self…”

Inspired by the conversation between the two, their members were also ready to fight. Even Miu who was looking at them from a distance could feel it.

What a sight. Well, it’s a battle between the winning candidates.

……Let’s move to a place where I can see them better! 

Miu looked around and found a tree where she might be able to see the fight better, so she climbed that tree. The moment she tried to calm down and sit on a thick branch to see the battle between the two, a person appeared next to her.

“……”

“……”

The person who appeared next to Miu was a maid. No, it was a girl in a maid clothes. 

Since she’s here, this maid is probably a high school student and a member of someone’s team.

….. ATTACK!

For a moment, “Attack!” crossed Miu’s mind, but she immediately reconsidered. Probably because she thought that the purpose of the maid was to collect the information, same as herself. She decided that it would be more useful to bring back information about the battle that was about to begin than to fight with the maid. It was the same with the maid.

The two stared at each other for a while without talking, and nodded quietly. Then, they turned their attention to the battle between Daikuji and Kaizuka, which was about to take place in front of them.

“Rout the enemy!”

“Go wild!”

The two boys raised their voices and the battle began.

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 201


201. Those who move, and those who stay quiet

“My leg hurts so much…”

“It’s your own faults. How could you go into the enemy camp alone.”

“But, well, Hatano-san is amazing! He took the jewel and victory, alone!”

“After I talked to them, I realized that they were… reasonable people.”

The details of the event were not all that good, so I omitted it. 

Anyway, now, there’re three jewels on the device and three areas of the same color on the monitor. If someone from another team is to wake up in the morning and to see this in the monitor, they would surely have an interesting reaction.

I mean, they have the audacity to just ‘wait-and-see’, and now, it ends with some territories overtaken by another team. Among the men of this world, those ones in this battle have a high pride. They can’t forgive those who stand out more than themselves.

“As expected, with this, other teams will make a move. Right?”

“But, I don’t think they will attack us.”

“Yeah, right. We’ve defeated the ones on our left and right, so we’re a little far from the other teams.”

“If you try to come here, on the contrary, your position will be far away from your base…. It’ll be tough if the enemy in the vicinity aims your base.”

“Alright. So tomorrow let’s devote ourselves to rest and gathering information.”

…After all, the important part of this King of Boys is the battle between boys. Although the fighting power of girls is high, it can be said that they won’t physically attack boys. The point is that the girls are lively, and it is said that the girls are like the bonus excitement for the game, as ten boys are not enough.

Let’s say I asks Minori-san to cut the neck of that muscle freak. Even if she has no problem with kicking the girls off, I can’t say for sure that she’ll swing the sword to that Daikuji. Even if she is okay with my request, viewers would complain saying that the girls are using violence against boys.

That’s why the one who have to deal with that muscle idiots, the self-proclaimed King, and the Vice Chairman, is me.

…Just thinking about it makes me feel uncomfortable. Really, I hope they get stomachache and retire from the game…

…… Won’t they just eat the strange mushrooms in the forest? Well, is it really impossible? Huft… those strange people… I hope they will crush each other tomorrow…

◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆

“I see…”

In the morning of the second day of the King of Boys, Kou Daikuji was disappointed with the peaceful atmosphere.

I thought someone would come to attack me at night, but there was nothing…. Well, it can’t be helped, should I attack them first?

Kou had an evil smile, thinking that if no one would start the fire, he would do it himself. 

If the other participants are motivated by that, that’s good. Otherwise, it’s just a matter of crushing them one by one.

When Kou entered the living room thinking about from where should he start, he noticed that the girls were making a strange expression.

“Hmm? What happened?”

“Ah, good morning, Daikuji-kun.”

The girls who noticed that Kou had come, gave a morning greeting. However, to put it the other way around, some didn’t even realize that Kou had arrived. In other words, something had happened.

Then, Kou looked at the monitor installed in the living room and opened his eyes wide.

“This is… what’s the meaning of this …”

On the monitor, it shown that two groups had been crushed.

“T-that… suddenly in the middle of the night…”

“Did he attack at night, or did he get the jewels in the daytime and put it in the middle of the night…?”

“Either way, we’re falling behind.”

While listening to the girls making speculations, Kou was smiling.

“I see… I see…”

“Da-daikuji-kun…?”

“Are you okay?”

“Don’t worry. The game isn’t over yet!”

His members worriedly call out to Kou, who looked like he was having fun but wickedly laughing like, “Kukukuku”.

“I’m okay, don’t worry. Well, perhaps I did something unfit of me like just wait and see, I’m a little bit surprised seeing someone dared to do something different than me.”

“No! Even if you did something like ‘wait and see’, the champion hasn’t decided yet!”

There was a voice of advocacy from the members, but Kou understood the reason of ​​the person who did this.

“The guy who did this made me… no not only me, but the other participants, looks stupid.”

You guys are cowards who don’t dare to leave their nests. Not suitable for a king!… is it?

“HaHaHa! Good. Bring it on! I’m all motivated now. I’ll let you know who’s better! Oi, it’s sudden but, let’s start crushing nearby guys.”

With a loud laugh, Kou asked the members to prepare for doing an assault. His members were confused at first, but soon began preparing with a fierce smile as if they had received his will.

◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆

Other participants grasped the current battle situation as well. Some decided to make a move and some decided to stay still. However, the fact that the number of people who decided to make a move had increased implied that the conflict would intensify.

In the meantime, the one who created this situation thought, “Let’s relax on the second day.”

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 200

Can’t believe that it’s ch 200!!!


200. It’s our win 2

The battle was over and the assailants returned. Hinata quietly saw off their figures.

“It was a stormy night …”

Hinata agreed to the words of her comrade who was watching the assailants leaving next door with her. 

The time we were actually fighting shouldn’t have been long. 

To confirm her thought, Hinata looked at the clock and it was less than 30 minutes since she was talking to her friend who was guarding the device together with her.

“I was thinking about the possibility of a night attack, but I didn’t think there was a group that would really do it…”

“Yeah, really. Until now, I didn’t know the rhythm of boys’ life, but seeing our king, he went to bed early, so….”

It was 10 pm… or that was what said on TV, but considering the boys at their place, they thought that it wasn’t a mistake.

But, after they say Hatano’s group went to attack them in the middle of the night with full energy, they reconsidered the program they watched. That it was suspicious.

“But we’ve already lost. The only thing we could do now, is either support the one who defeated us or pray for their defeat.”

“I, will support them!”

“I, I see… you seem so enthusiastic about it… Did something happen?”

“!? There is nothing!”

“… Why are you sweating?”

“M-more than that! I have to release the king and bring him to bed!”

“That’s right. Even so, I’ve never thought he would be wonderfully wrapped inside the futon.”

Seeing their king looked like that, she felt a little bit strange but at the same time, a little intrigued with the boy who exposed to his defenseless appearance. 

Hinata shook her head and changed her mood so as to drive away ‘that’ kind of thought from her heart.

“For the time being, let’s untie the rop… hey, what are you doing?”

When Hinata was trying to get rid of her desires, she saw her friend’s action… the girl, her friend, she turned her smartphone toward the defenseless boy.

“… Well, it’s rare for a boy to be wrapped inside the futon like this…”

“Huft, Seriously… what’re you doing…”

……………….

“….Well, since it has become like this.”

For the time being, Hinata also turned her smartphone to the boy who was wonderfully wrapped inside the futon to commemorate the event.

◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆

“We aーre back!”

“We’re back”

“We are finally back”

Everyone’s cheerful voice echoed in the cottage. Everyone seemed to be a little excited probably because they just won the battle. Perhaps the aftermath of the previous battle still remained in their minds.

“Welcome backー”

“Welcome back…. I don’t think I need to ask how it was.”

The two who was guarding the cottage, welcomed us. They were happy to see our cheerful expression as it meant that we had won.

“Is the enemy tough?”

“Wellー, the girl in front of the device was strong.”

“Yeah, really…”

Yuzuka-san said so while taking a breath.

“While dodging our attack, she was continuedly searching for gaps, and when she found it, she came to attack… it was hard.”

“If we didn’t scrape her strength little by little, we would have been injured.”

“At my side, the girls were also well-skilled…. Well, there is about one person who I really want to have a rematch with and cut…”

CLICK!! CLICK!! CLICK!!

Minori-san said so, while playing with her Kotetsu.

“Well, anyway. In the end, everyone was able to return safely and bring back the jewel!”

I said so while taking out the jewel out of my pocket and showed it to everyone.

“”OOOー!””

Everyone applauded. 

I stepped to the device.

“Then, it’s time to set this on the device.”

I fit the jewel into an empty dent. The jewels shone brilliantly, and the color of a part of the map on the monitor changed.

“So, it’s changing like this huh.”

“If we get six, we can win just by protecting after that…”

“Well, if that happens, they may come together to attack us.”

“In any case, as what we agreed in the meeting, we’ll defeat them all and make Kohaku-kun the King. So, as soon as we found them, let’s kill them!”

“… It’s a terrible word you said. You should say it more gracefully… like, Search and Destroy…”

Isn’t it the same …!

“If you wake up in the morning and see that the map has changed, you’ll be surprised, right?”

“That’s right. It would be interesting if other groups started to move aggressively from now on…”

“But, do you think they’ll move with just one territory?”

“…It doesn’t feel like a threat.”

The girls’ future exciting battlefield expectations were trampled as they thought that the other groups wouldn’t move yet. 

There…!! I showed everyone the jewels I got in the afternoon.

“Yeah, I think so too, that why I got another one in the afternoon.”

When I showed the other jewel, everyone’s faces were looked confused. After that, when they found out that I had attacked another group alone, I was made to sit in seiza and scolded to stop doing dangerous things alone.

Damn you glasses-kun…! To set up a timed trap like this, What a guy!

Ah, also, editor-san, please cut this scene.

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 199

Well, it’s late but, Happy new year all…
More ch later…


199. It’s our win

It was as if someone’s unfaithful scene had been found…

…but that wasn’t the case. Rather, I was earnestly earning time until Minori came, so it should be a delightful situation, but surprisingly, an awkward air was flowing.

Minori-san confirmed the situation and smiled. 

Yeah, it’s okay, she’s not angry.

The girl under me was breathing so hard and had a pale face as if she was almost dead. 

What exactly are you so scared of? Minori-san has a gentle smile on her face, doesn’t she?

Since we were in battle, it wasn’t a good to be seen in bed with the enemy.

Yeah, no matter what the circumstances, this isn’t good. 

I quickly let go of the girl who I pushed down and asked Minori-san about the situation.

“Well, what’s the situation?”

“Ah right, the enemies who blocked the way have been defeated. They won’t wake up right away…. All that remains is the one who run away from me, there.”

Minori-san smiled deeply and saw the girl who hadn’t got up from bed yet.

“I see, the reason you left earlier wasn’t to protect your king, but to catch my king, right? I’m sorry, Kohaku-san. I wanted to rush early, but the other girls were also skilled. Because of that, I was late. Because of that, it became like this … “

Minori-san shook her shoulders and made a gesture like wiping her hands against her eyes. 

…… It looked like as if she was crying, but there were no tears flowing out. Why? Because, it was anger that overflowed from the body.

“Such a thing… to be forcibly taken to bed, pushed down by force, and touched all over the body, indecently…! To put Kohaku-san in such a humiliating situation!”

“…….Hmm?”

“It was scary, wasn’t it? It’s okay. I’m going to get rid of her now. Sure, I’ve drawn the sword, but it’s gonna be okay. Don’t worry.”

Minori-san’s eyes shined.

“Hiiii!”

The girl who was glared by Minori-san, her body was trembling. 

…… Apparently, in Minori-san’s mind, I was about to be forced to do indecent stuff with her.

Let’s leave aside how it was interpreted, but if I leave her as it is, it seems that an object that isn’t appropriate to be recorded, will be rolling in the living room. Before that happens, I need to explain all of this.

“No, no, please rest assured, she hasn’t done anything.”

“…Nothing…? Really?”

“Yeah. She was an enemy a while ago, but after I talked to her, she understood it. She’s not our enemy anymore.”

Then I procced to ask the girl who was trembling on the bed, “Right?”.

The girl shook her head vigorously to affirm it.

“… Is, that so? But she also needs to protect her king, so it’s not that strange if she lied to you…. Should I hit her here with this Kotetsu…?”

“Yeah. The reason she laid down her arms… see, over there.”

At the end of what I pointed, there was a boy wrapped inside the futon.

“…I see. She admitted she had lost because it was already settled.”

“That’s right. So, it doesn’t matter even if you hit her with Kotetsu.”

“…But the battle isn’t finished until you put in the jewel! As expected, you should kill them here for safety!”

……This girl… she just wants to beat her… is it? 

After a while, I managed to persuade Minori-san. Then we decided to go to where Shino-san and Yuzuka-san were. The fact that they hadn’t come probably meant they were still fighting. Which meant, the enemy they were facing, might be that skilled. If that person was to find out that she was the only one left, she might admit to her lose. That was why we headed to the living room, dragging the futon with the boy inside.

“Huhh, Huhh, Huhhhh…”

As expected, the fighting was still going on in the living room. However, what was being done there was not a deadly battle, but a one-sided fight. The girl in front of the device was exhausted with wounds over her bod over her body. On the other hand, Shino-san and Yuzuka-san were carefully hunting down the opponent, as I didn’t see wounds on them.

“As expected, Toukain-san and Seikagu-san are fighting with safety first in mind, considering the future.”

Minori-san was calmly expressed her impressions while nodding.

…..Well, sure they’re safe, but when viewed from the side, seeing the wounded girl who is trying hard even now, it’s as if we’re the villain you know?… I can’t leave this alone.

I hurriedly called them out.

“Stop the futile fight! No one needs to be hurt anymore!”

The moment I said that, Shino-san and Yuzuka-san, who were fighting in the living room, turned to us.

“Oh, Kohaku-kun. Is it over?”

“I’m glad you’re safe.”

Shino-san and Yuzuka-san joyfully greeted me, but to be honest I was super scared, because they still wearing a gas mask. I spoke slowly to give a sense of security to the girl who hadn’t yet stop her fighting position.

“It’s concluded already. The battle is over.”

Then she saw me, her fellow comrade next to me, and finally their king, who was wrapped inside the futon. Seeing that, the girl sighed and raised her hands

“… I, surrender.”

We had won.

It’s late but, Merry Christmas!!


198. I don’t want to fight

In front of the room, a girl who was worrying about the safety of her king, called with a desperate voice. But, the king she was worried about, was somehow lying in the corner of the floor, rolled inside the futon. 

…… If she asks about what happened, I’ll tell her that, this is just the evidence that a battle would end in tragedy. Of course, I just did the right thing, nothing was wrong.

So, if I talk to her with sincerity, she should understand, that this situation couldn’t be helped… that I didn’t want to do it either! Well, in the end, if Minori-san comes while persuading her, it’ll be my victory…

“That voice just now, who are you!? I will not forgive you if you do something terrible to my king!”

“Yeah, yeah, I’ll unlock it now, so wait. Also, I’m not doing anything terrible, so don’t worry.”

“Damn! Fast!”

She seems to be in a hurry… well that would be the case, right? I mean, her companions are fighting a dangerous person like Jason after all. You don’t know when the person will come, and the fact that it’s midnight, makes this scarier. [TN: Jason Voorhees, form Friday the 13th]

I unlocked the door. The moment the rattling sound was heard, the door was opened vigorously and the girl jumped in vigorously.

“Oh…..”

“My king! Where are you!? Are you safe!?”

The girl who entered the room desperately looking every corner of the room for a boy.

“Wha-what happened!?”

Apparently, she found him. 

Well, in the first place I didn’t hide him, so of course she would find him in a moment…

“I’ll free you! Please wait!”

I’d a hard time wrapping him up like that, so I want you to stop trying to release him.

I gently grasped her from behind and stopped her movement.

“What’re you do――!”

A girl who was furious when she got stopped in trying to help her king, her expression changes to astonishment, as soon as she saw my face.

“Oh, you are …! Kohaku, Hatano…-kun”

“Hello. It’s a wonderful night, right?”

“Ah, so… the assailant is you, who are called as an angel… No wait, that monster is your team member…”

“Monster? Who are you talking about? All my members are kind women, you know?”

“Damn! Anyway, let me go!”

“No can do. Let’s talk first.”

“Faaah!”

I whispered that, slowly into her ear. Then, I put my hand around her waist and moved to the bed.

“Eh! What? Hey!?”

“It’s okay, It’s okay.”

“What is okay!?”

And then we sat on the bed together. 

And I put my hand around her waist

And pulled her slowly.

Our body getting closer to each other…

And as her waist touched my body, with a weak voice she said, “aah”

“Damn! You think you can win over me with this kind of thing?”

“That’s not it! I’m not trying to win over you… or persuading you at all…”

I answered with a hurt expression on my face.

“Eh? I-I’m sorry. I…”

“No, you’re right. No one will believe that the guy who comes to attack them want to talk with them. Yeah, it’s okay.”

With tears in my eyes, I made sure to create an atmosphere that can be called a ‘courageous angel’. Thanks to that, her attitude was obviously getting kinder.

“W-why you came to attack us!?”

“It’s not something strange, I mean, we’re here to fight.”

“T-that’s true…! Then why you want to talk to me…”

I let go of the body that was in close contact with me and gently pushed her down to bed.

“Why…? Isn’t it decided? Of course, because I want to get along with you.”

“Auu…..”

“What a cute pajama.”

“Do-don’t look… I mean, you attacked so suddenly. I didn’t have time to change clothes… Aah!”

I stare at her whose face was dyed in red, while gently sliding my fingers on her thighs.

“Yaa!”

“It’s okay, it’s okay.”

Well, I don’t know what’s okay either…

“No, we can’t.. my king is here…”

Come to think of it…

I glanced at the boy rolled inside the futon. 

It seems he hasn’t recovered from fainting yet. 

…… That stan rod, they didn’t tweak the voltage, right?

“Think of him just as a figurine.”

I mean, he’s not even conscious…

“W-what about the camera …”

“It’s okay. The editing staff will do something…”

…… Right? Well, the worst case, they put mosaic… No, no, I’m not going to anything, I just want to waste time…

“…Is it okay?”

“It’s okay, because I really don’t want to fight. I want to get along with everyone …”

Perhaps, the girl made up her mind after she heard that word, she closed her eyes, tightly.

“Aah, Mom, I’m going to be an adult today. God, Thank yo―― “

Right when she said her thanks to God, I heard the door was getting opened slowly. 

CREEK! CREEK!

For some reason, the sound that I heard clearly had an eerie atmosphere.

Of course, the fact that the door was getting opened meant that someone was there…

“Fou~nd you.”

A monster… Minori-san, appeared with a sword without the scabbard.

Am I actually in a horror movie?

…… ah, there is no blood on the sword. It’s okay… It’s gonna be okay.

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 197


197. Invasion

Minori-san was fighting with some flashy and big moves, so I had to invade from the back. Naturally, I would return to the way I came. At that time, I saw Shino-san and Yuzu-san fighting…

But, no matter how I saw their figure, they looked like thieves. The sight them attacking a beautiful girl with a stick while their faces was hidden was quite shocking. 

It’s okay to be broadcasted right? It doesn’t break any code, right? 

…… Well, let’s ask Etou-san to do something with the editing. I don’t know if it can be done nicely, but…

……Hmm? I wonder why… I feel like all of my fights need to be edited. It’s so strange, there should be no problem with the rules…

I thought about it for a while, but in the end, I thought that Etou-san and others would do something about the video, so I decided to concentrate on winning the battle. 

In fact, I’ve been moving violently since the first day, so it should make the program more interesting.

…… Yeah, I haven’t done anything wrong.

I tried to justify all of my actions. 

I went to look for a window that would be easy to get in and out. And I found it in no time, I made sure that the window was somewhere located on a opposite position from where the others who were fighting inside. 

The best outcome is if this turned out to be the boy’s room, but well, it depends on my luck.

Even though I was worried, I moved to touch the window. Luckily, it wasn’t locked, I was able to open it smoothly. 

If this is the same world as Co**n or Kin**ichi, the person inside this room would surely be dead… Really, aren’t you too lack of security? [TN: Detective Conan, and Kindaichi]

“Alright”

I put my hand on the opened window, raised my body, turned it around, and rolled, so that it would look more stylish. Of course, I did that because I was aware of the cameraman was shooting me. 

In this battle, I’m not that noticeable at all, so at least, even just a little…

There was no man in the room I entered. Since the futon was still in a beautiful state, it was probably the room of the girls who was fighting Shino-san and Yuzuka-san in the living room. 

I quickly opened the door and looked outside. 

It seems that Minori-san’s battle has not been settled yet, but there is no sign of someone nearby.

I quietly went out of the room and started looking for the boy. Most of the rooms opened out in a hurry due to the attack. So, it was easy to see inside the opened open. 

In the first place, it’s impossible for them to sleep together, so there’s no need to check… 

I found only one locked room amongst the unopened doors. I thought about kicking it, but I gave up because some might come back in a hurry. Therefore, I decided to go out from the next room and invade through the window.

CLUNK!

The window was locked when I tried to break in triumphantly.

…… What a hassle. Is it a measure to protect yourself from a girl who might visit in the middle of the night? Really, is he even a man?

As the current situation wouldn’t change even if I kept worrying about him, so there was no choice but to break the window with my stun rod. Of course, there was a noise, so I thought the boy inside would awake, but he was still sleeping comfortably in the futon.

The boy was wearing a nightcap and earplugs while being wrapped in the futon. 

He’s completely like someone on a vacation. Even though I’m holding my sleepiness and trying my best to be aggressive on this battle, how’s he like this?

Anyway, for now, let’s wrap the futon with the rope. Wait, what if he wakes up while I’m doing it… Alright, let’s neutralize him first.

I approached the boy while turning on the stun rod. 

BUZZZ! BUZZZ! BUZZZ!

It’s not like I’m jealous of him who is sleeping comfortably, I’m not doing this because I’m angry.

“Kukuku. It’s your fault.”

I touched him with the stun rod and proceed to pressー

Right at that moment, I remembered that the footage would be recorded. 

…… Damn, that was dangerous. No matter how you think about it, I’ll look like a villain. The viewer will get turned off by my action… Since I’m being called as an ‘Angel’, there’s no need to drop that image. 

After thinking about what should I do, I sighed, took the boy off the futon, tied his limbs and put a gag in his mouth.

“Hmm! Hmmmmmー!?”

Well, of course, he’ll wake up if you do this right? 

As the boy’s limbs was tied up, he could only behave like a fish out of water.

“Stop that useless resistance. I don’t want to be rough on you.”

“Hmm !? Mmmー!!!! Mmーmmmー!?”

“… What is it? Somehow, I feel like you just called me a coward.”

“Mmm! Hmmm!”

Perhaps some girls noticed that their leader’ voice who kept rampaging hard, I heard loud noise from the outside of the door. 

The members who noticed his voice probably decided to split some of their members, some to fight Minori-san and some to go here to protect him.

“MmmMmMmMmmmMmmmmm!”

“So noisy”

“Mmm!!”

BUZZZ!

With one press he turned quiet. Then I quickly wrap him in a futon, and roll him in the corner of the room.

“Damn! Are you safe!? Please reply!”

“It’s okay. I’ll unlock it now.”

“Eh, that voice…”

I didn’t want the girl to suddenly kick the door, so I went to unlock the door. 

Alright, I guess I need to hold on until Minori-san comes?

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 196


196. Night Raid

With Minori-san’s kick, the cottage door blew off in an unbelievable momentum. 

What a splendid “Let me in!!”… even if it’s not a night attack, I’m sure people will still scared of it.

The participants in this attack were four people including me… Shino-san, Yuzuka-san, Minori-san, and me. Maizumi-san and Yachigusa-san remained in the base to protect the device. When the personnel were decided, Maizumi-san made a sad voice saying, “I’ve to watch the base~”.

Well, it couldn’t be helped. Since it’s midnight, I need to bring Shino-san and Yuzuka-san, who provided the night-vision scope and are familiar with how to use it.

……Even though at first, I had a question like, why aristocratic high school girls are familiar with how to use such things, I decided to think, that’s because they’re aristocrats. Yep, that must be it.

By the way, the traps that had been set up while coming to this cottage were released smoothly by Shino-san and Yuzuka-san. 

…… But, seriously, what is a ‘high school girl’ in this world?

“Yuzuka!”

“I know!”

While I was escaping from reality, my excellent friends were starting to act quickly. The smoke bomb that Yuzuka-san prepared was thrown into the cottage right after the door got kicked. Smoke immediately came out of the grenade thrown inside and covered the inside of the cottage. And when then they quickly removed the night-vision scope, and changed it to a gas mask.

“Rush!”

Now, all we have to do is suppress them.

It was decided in advance that together with Minori-san, I would capture the man. Shino-san and Yuzuka-san would capture the jewel. So, we acted separately as the agreement.

Since the device was installed in the living room, it was found immediately, but it seemed that there were girls who guarding it. Without hesitation, Shino-san and Yuzuka-san rushed into the guards with the stun rod.

“We are going this way. It seems that the layout of cottage itself isn’t that different. It’s easy to understand… still…”

There were noises and calls from all over the corridors where smoke was widespread. 

Even though it’s not even a minute since we opened the door… as expected of the chosen girls.

“Then I will charge. I will hold down the women who came out, so Kohaku-san, please capture the man.”

“Understood. There are quite a number of them, are you gonna be okay?”

“No problem”

Minori-san smiled and rushed into the smoke. 

…… Well, I have to act too…

Minori-san was having a fight with the girls in front of me around and I couldn’t seem to pass through them. 

…It can’t be help, I’ll go around and rush in from the back.

◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆

“Hinata-san, Hinata-san! It’s an attack! What should I do? What should I do!?”

“Huftー really, calm down! They’re coming!”

Hinata calmed down the short-haired girl and warned her about the incoming attacks. Immediately after that, the enemy attacked from the other side of the smoke. Since she could hear a loud noise from outside the room, even though two girls were coming to attack them, she guessed that the enemy were attacking other than their side.

“Hmmph!”

Hinata avoided the sharp low hit and tried to grab the assailant, but the opponent didn’t give in that easily. At that moment, Hinata realized that the assailant was not ordinary, and so she braced herself, but at the same time,

BUZZZ!!

“Gagh!”

Hinata heard the short-haired girl’s shout and an electrical sound.

“Are you okay!?”

Hinata didn’t get any reply. Sweat ran down her cheeks. Due to the fall of her partner, Hinata had to deal with two skilled people alone.

“This isー too much”

“You can surrender, you know?”

A reply came back to the words that Hinata muttered in a low voice. Hinata chose to talk after thinking a little about whether to continue talking or not. 

Hinata thought that if she could waste time, her friends who were fighting outside should come to help. 

The enemy is not that stupid enough to leave his base defenseless, so since there are two people here, there should be only one or two people outside the room. 

After all, the enemy needs to protect the boy and the jewel at the base, so at least two people must be there.

“Noー, I can’t do that.”

“Wellー. If you surrender now, I’ll give you the bromide photo of my king.” [TN: explanation in below]

“… No, hmm. Well, I want it, butー!?”

Immediately after, the opponent’s attack passed just above Hinata’s head so she bent down. It was an attack from the blind spot. 

Hinata calmly analyzing the situation while sweating coldly.

Another person attacked the gap that is created by attracting attention with conversation. Plus, there’s the smoke too. The combination is too good.

“Hmm, I failed”

“She’s tough…”

Even though they used such a nasty tactic, but their voices are so beautiful and graceful.

In that moment,

BUZZZ!

Hinata’s consciousness went to the source of the sound. She regained it back not long after, but the other person’s palm was already approaching in front of her.

“Urgh!”

Hinata avoided the hand and on the contrary, she grabbed the opponent’s arm and tried to hold it. However, if the opponent didn’t allow it. The other launched an attack and so she released the arm to avoid it. As a result, each other returned to their original positions. However, the smoke that had spread in the room gradually became thinner, and the other party became visible.

“Fu”

So, they’re wearing a mask and holding something like a baton in their hands. That shape and a loud noise, it must be a stun rod. 

Maybe these two are special agents from somewhere?…

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 195


195. Are you ready?

Yeah, it’s a surprise attack. As expected, in a battle royale, there should be a surprise attack, right? It’s something that in a manga, the main character will be praised for doing it, and the enemy will be despised as a coward. The current time is about 2 or 3 am, which is a good time to do a night attack.

Even though it was at such a time, the members who were preparing seemed to have a lot of fun. Everyone smiled, “Kyafufufu”.

The tools brought by Shino-san and Yuzuka-san were lined up in the living room, and all the girls were looking and thinking carefully which one to bring.

Gas masks, batons, and grenades… in a glance it’s looks like that, but really, what on earth are these girls fighting? Anyway, this is my battle, so I can’t just do nothing. 

Amongst one of the terrifyingly lined up things, I picked up something like a baton.

“Ah, I brought sevens of it! So that everyone can have one!”

“I-is that so? But, what’s this?”

“Of course, it’s a high-voltage stun rod! It can reach slightly further than a normal stun gun, and it’s easy to use, you know?”

…..What do you mean by, ‘Of course’, huh? I’ve never used it, so I can’t really say whether it’s okay to use or not….

“… I see. Then, what about this thing?”

“It’s a smoke screen. Well, I can’t bring the real thing.”

Shino-san said so and laughed, “Ahahaha”

…Is there something funny in our current conversation? 

In this way, I quietly watched over their preparations without saying anything with uneasy feelings.

◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆

“Ahー, night shift is so boringー, right?”

A short-haired girl threw herself on the sofa in the living room, and while slouching on the sofa she talked to her companion who was watching the night together with her.

“Wellー, even soー, you can’t neglect the night guard.”

The girl answered the words of the short-haired girl while pouring the juice into a glass.

“Yeah, that’s rightー…. Ah, thank you. Is there a belligerent boy who will go on the offensive from the first day? More over on the night?”

The short-haired girl said so and took a sip of the juice she was given.

“I don’t knowー. Most boys sleep at 10 pm, it was what the people on TV said on the other day, butー I don’t really know.”

“Eh? Is that true!? Well, our king went to sleep early so… “

“Who knowsー. After all, that’s what those people on TV said.”

The short-haired girl scratched her cheeks as if she was a little embarrassed by the words. Another girl looked at her while tilting her head.

“What’s wrong?”

“Ahー, it’s nothing, just that, we’ll be on TV right, Hinata-san?”

The short-haired girl timidly looked at the cameraman who was shooting them from the side. Her companion, a girl called, Hinata, turned to where the short-haired girl was looking at, and when she saw the cameraman, she opened her mouth

“Wellー, that was a program from a different station, so I don’t think there’s a proof behind what they said. The program from this station is different in terms of the credibility.”

“That’s remark, isn’t it a little too much…? W-well, whatever. What do you think of this fight, Hinata-san?”

“What do you mean?”

“I mean, who do you thing is dangerous? We have to make our king win! We need to analyze the enemy!”

The short-haired girl talked in a straightforward manner, but you could see clearly her face was full of curiosity. Hearing that, Hinata realized that they couldn’t really move away from the device due to night guards, that it wouldn’t be good to be so tense all the time, and so she decided to take the chat to ease the nerve.

“… Hmm, that’s rightー”

Hinata turned her face up and remembered each member who was participating in the finals. Then, she put her finger on her mouth, went to think about it a little and returned the words.

“I feel like four peopleー.”

“Four people! Who!?”

The short-haired girl approached Hinata.

“You’re too close, move.”

“Ah, I’m sorry. Cough… so who are they?”

It seemed the cameraman was also interested in the topic, and began to close up on Hinata.

“Well, it’s just as what speculated.”

“Eeー, but if it’s as speculated, wouldn’t it be five?”

“Hmm… Based on the impression I got when I saw them on the ship… the masked man… that Kaizuka-kun, I feel like he’ll not makes the cut if he ever meets the other four.”

“Is that so… he was so confident though…”

“You see, that Ouza-kun, Daikuji-kun and Hibiya-kun…  just standing in a place, would make that place their own.”

To be honest, Hinata thought that her king wouldn’t be able to win against them, but Hinata thought that it was her job to do something about it, and even if her king himself might be inferior, all she could do was to support him.

“Hmm? What about that ‘Angel’? What is your impression of ‘My Angel’?”

“… Well, let’s put that nickname aside… anyway, Hatano-kun is…”

As Hinata was about to utter the impression she had of Kohaku… At that moment, a terrible sound echoed from the entrance of the cottage.
