Birth of Demon Lord
After the conversation
concerning Youmu had ended, the real strategic conference shall begin in
Everyone is looking at
me with stiff expressions.
Let’s hear their
「First of all, before I give my own opinion, I want to hear what
everyone has in mind.」
Hearing that, everyone
started to actively give various replies.
Only Gabil, himself,
can use spirits. So, it can’t be helped.
I want to avoid
permeating the barrier too many times. (TL: opening and closing)
Everyone put together
To sum it up.
There’s an opinion,
that the humans who are responsible for the cowardly surprise attack should not
true. I don’t think that method of thinking is wrong.
There’s also another
opinion. There are also good humans, so it’s not right to lump them all
Hearing such opinions
made me glad. It will not be good, if we incorrectly reach our goals through
anger and resentment.
The second opinion was
the general consensus in the room.
This proved that there
are monsters who wish to live in coexistence with humans.
They still follow my
rules, even after the tragedy occurred.
They are my dear
companions. The important people who I can call my family.
The me who doesn’t
truly love anyone; I who think that love is something shady.
While everyone was
calming down, I made my conviction.
「Everyone, please listen」
Everyone turned there
attention towards me.
When I got everyone’s
attention, I began my story.
「I am a former human; a “Reincarnated Person”.」
raised their voices, no one tried to interrupt my story.
I think Ranga may
already have knowledge about this.
He may have heard it
while residing in my shadow.
Nobody seemed really
surprised, maybe they were already aware of it before I told them.
Seeing the situation
is like this, I continued.
「I am a person who came from a different world.
In that world, I was human.
When I died on that
side, I reincarnated into this side; as a slime.
In the beginning, I
was alone and lonely, who could of predicted that I could make so many
Perhaps, you attained
your humanoid form when you evolved because the process was reliant upon the
desires of the person who invoked the change.
That is why I made the
rule “Do not attack humans”.
I said that I liked
humans, because I was a formerly a human myself.
I created that rule,
without the intention for any of you guys to be harmed...
I, even though I am a
monster, I have a human heart.
Because of that … that
time … I held such selfish preferences.
Because I am a former
human, I also want to get along with humans.
The result of that… I
neglected to see what was right in front of me. And this … the result.
I can see that I am
the one who is truly responsible for these events transpiring.
I am deeply
Hearing my story, the
room fell under a curtain of silence.
Each of them tried to
make sense of my story.
「It is a fact that Rimuru-sama is a former
human. However I cannot see any problem that may arise from this.」
Hakurou said this with serious face.
Eh!? I did not expect
this sort reaction.
I expected that I
would have been treated like an enemy.
「But your master is a former human, right? Do you not find it
In response to that question,
「Eh? Why should I?」
「My only Lord is Rimuru-sama.」
「I also think like that.」
And so on and so forth.
And at the last one,
「Rimuru-sama, everyone’s feelings have not changed a bit.
There is no need for
you to worry over this matter anymore.」
So he said.
I nod and think. As I
expected, this is the place where my heart belongs. (TL: Home is where your
heart belongs.) (ED: And where you waifu is) (TL: I don’t have waifu..... T_T)
(PR: 4ever alone…
I am really happy.
After seeing me
nodding, Kaijin open his mouth,
「So, I want to hear something. What you intent to do about the
interactions between humans and us from now on?」
Everyone turned to
Yes, that is indeed a
With the exception of
monsters, this is a great problem for Kaijin and the other dwarfs.
When the time comes
when I am forced to declare humans as my enemies, I will be considered as a new
Well, such time may
For now, I expressed
what my ideas are concerning this matter.
「First of all, before I give my final answer, I will share some
values from my previous world.
In the previous world
there was an ideological view of inherent morality and its derivative inherent human nature.
This view assumes that
people are innately born with the ability to tell right from wrong and from
this people are born inherently good or bad.
I think that inherent
human nature has its merits.
Humans may contain
both the qualities of being moral or immoral in equal proportions.
If the moral side is
more dominate then the immoral side, then that person will become a good.
However, if the
conditions are reversed, then the person will become bad.
In truth, I had this
If you are not trying
to do anything immoral, then in my eyes you are a good person.
Thus, if someone
didn’t detest or distrust us just because of us being monsters, then they are a
I want to believe in
But because I want to
believe it, I underwent such an experience; I failed to properly distinguish
the idealistic views I held from real world.
Thus, this is my
For now, I think that
it is too early for us to be at a stage where we safely can ally with humans.
The first important
thing to do is for my existence is acknowledged by the others.
For humans, someone
who amasses massive power can’t be ignored.
In addition, by
becoming a Demon Lord, I can restrain the other Demon Lords actions.
To everyone who went
against us, we will bare our fangs and retaliate.
To everyone who lends
their hands to us, we will grant our blessing to them.
To our opponents, we
will do to them what they have done to us.
In the future, I hope that
we can be linked in a friendship one day.
These are my views on

(PR:I think that it is
better to get the closest in western idealism as possible. I think it portrays
a similar view + I <3 Immanuel Kant)
So I finish my speech.
He then responds.
「That is an overly naive and idealistic point of view.
Honestly! It’s not a
speech fit for someone who’s going to become a Demon Lord.
....... However, I
don’t dislike it.」
With a sigh, Kaijin
conveyed his thoughts
Shuna exclaimed, while
「Isn’t it fine? Even if it’s just an idealistic
method of thinking.
I think that if it’s
Rimuru-sama, you will be able to create such world.」
So she declared her
「At any rate, we have decided to obey, so we
will obey no matter what. We've gone past thinking about it.」
The one who just abides the rule without thinking, Gerudo, sincerely make his
frank but meaningful declaration.
「Hey, to make Rimuru-sama into the king. Isn’t that my duty?」
「I am Rimuru-sama faithful shadow. I will perform any instruction
that I receive.」
「We will establish a new country, aiming to change everyone's way
Youmu also said it.
respective words, showed their approval.
I receive the weight
of their words.
To push forth my
foolish ideal, there is no need to make an excuse for it next time.
「I understand. Please follow my own selfishness!」
To my words,
「「「Danna (Rimuru-sama), we know (understand) it
was your selfishness.」」」
... ... ... ...
... ... ...
Well then, it’s now
the time for the strategic conference against the military invasion.
The ones who invading
this time, are allied forces of Falmas Kingdom and Western Saint’s Church.
The main force of
Falmas Kingdom was approximately composed of 5,000 regular knights and 4,000
Having accepted the
request from Falmas Kingdom, the Western Saint’s Church sent their crusaders of
2,000 infantry, and 3,000 troops specialized in dealing with monsters,
attentively named the anti-monster squad.
And, the most
troublesome, 1,000 knights from the Church Chivalric Order.
The total count of the
army was 15,000, a powerful war potential.
who were scattered in various places, came with this information.
It seemed that the
number of soldiers that were assembled exceeded my predictions.
「How’s should we arrange our troop composition?」
Gerudo said while
「In any event, my corps will make their stand
at the front.」
Benimaru also felt
He had formed a
private hobgoblin corps.
Has this come from
Riguru commands the
Goblin Wolf Riders whom are in a state of rage.
I am not the only one
who’s infuriated by the tragedy.
「Sorry, but this time, I’ve decide that only I
I want you guys to
leave it to me.」
「........ What do you mean?」
Benimaru asked as the
representative of everyone in the room, I then began to elaborate.
This time, it is for
the ceremony of me becoming a Demon Lord.
「The necessary sacrifices (Souls) for me to
become a Demon Lord are 10,000 people.
It’s fortunate that
the number of invaders falls above 15,000; That exceeds the rquirement.
This is a necessary
ceremony (process) for me to become a Demon Lord.
So this time, I am the
only one required to expunge the invaders.」
So I said.
Actually, there’s no
need for me to do the massacre personally.
It’s the answer from 『Great
Sage』, as long as the deaths were conducted by my intention the
condition will be cleared.
A sudden thought
crossed in my mind, maybe the goal of the Demon Lord Clayman is to cause the
war and to gather 10,000 human souls?
Because the attack of
a single limited, war will make it easy to harvest their souls, this might be
his true intention, that is, to evolve to a new Demon Lord.
My predictions may be
correct, for a small fry to wage war by himself is impossible, but it is
something trivial for me.
That wasn’t the only
the reason why I choose to fight alone.
It is because I feel
the need to take responsibility this time. I can’t always rely on others
If I am defeated here,
then that means I was only worth that much.
Though I understand
that this is my own selfishness, however there is a reason behind it.
「Besides, there is also a task for you guys.
Currently, I believe
that Shion and the other’s souls are locked inside the barrier.
So, if in the war the
barrier is disturbed, it may become undone, then the souls may disappear.
Though it is
reinforced by my magic power, if the fight begins the magic power I exert
may be hindered and it can disappear.
I want you guys to
reinforce the barrier, and to call out to Shion and the others.」
This, I don’t know if
it is really necessary, but it’s a request I want them to do it
Even if it’s only
raising the possibility a little..
Currently, I am
emitting my entire magic power.
To maintain the
barrier, the inside of the barrier is also filled with magic power (Energy).
Physics and Magic
retain the same rules, from macro to micro.(PR: Conservation of energy?)
In other words, the
space is filled with energy, I think that the souls that are covered by energy
will held in place and not become dispersed.
If the soul’s
protection disappears, it may pass the barrier and dissipate.
Humans can enter the
barrier without any difficulty, as their magic power component is scarce.
Regarding a soul,
because it is a pure energy, it is hampered by the barrier.
A Monster’s astral
body is composed of magic power. I think that this is necessary increase the
probability of the energy dispersing.
If I go to the war, I
want the remaining people to maintain the current barriers condition.
If I want to be able
to use my whole power, this is the best solution according to『Great
Maybe, even if Hinata
came along with the invasion forces, I will still be able to purge everyone by
I had seen her skill.
That is my biggest advantage. I won’t allow myself to be defeated for the
second time in a row.
determination, Benimaru nodded.
「Acknowledged, this time we will leave everything to Rimuru-sama.
Please give them our share of rage.」
I reply to that with a nod.
In the first place,
there is no intention to forgive the enemy.
I receive everyone’s
acknowledgement, I will become the only opponent for the invading army.
The seventh day.
Below me I see host of
soldiers (ants) are marching.
But now I can only see
them as food . (TL: Rimuru only seen soldier as food/fodder now.)
Those bastards, they
will become Shion’s sacrifices.....
there should of been a declaration of.
But, right now.
The enemy has already
declared it and it has been received. In that case...
These bastards, I will
eviscerate every last one of them.
There is no need for
survivors; there is no need to fight fairly.

for my evolution. You all should be grateful.
I’m now high in the
sky, soaring with my mimicry wing, I looked down at my below and confirm the

Now let justice be

down from the sky, it reflected repeatedly above the ground and was covered
onto a single point, it pierced the soldiers’ bodies without meeting any
resistance, and so the massacre begins.
In the army, there are
magic divisions that contain specialists who can erect defensive barriers.
Even if the number of
opponents is high, if I am in close proximity to them the <core attack
magic> will obliterate them in a single blow.
So, to take cover
under a barrier is a common military tactic in this world.
Of course, there is
also defensive barrier carefully prepared this time.
Even if they march to
a city full of high level monster, which they considered as a joke, the level
barrier is still skilfully done.
However, before the
wrath new magic resistance is futile.
In this world, the
principle of barrier magic is specialized for defense against magic power.
So it means that they
hadn’t any resistance against things that abide law of physics.
That is the result of
the analysis of barrier, so that fact has been confirmed.
If you think about it,
the heat from thousand degree flames can be stopped completed by a barrier, et
cetera, so what is the cause that the barrier is able to interfere with the
<Elemental magic> uses and manipulated magic power in order to invoke
interference in physical law.
That’s why, to prevent
it, defensive barriers prevent the entry of magic power.
overwhelming the barrier with magical power, it is nearly impossible to break a
Also, since it
prevents the entry of magic power, it become impossible to cause any physical
interference inside it.
So, what about
<Spirit Magic>? Because it rewrites the physical law because of the
spirit’s power to cause interference, it still had power although is in smaller
Of course if they put
spirit barrier, <Spirit Magic> usage can be prevented.
That is the reason
that the most basic barrier had multiple, more than two, layers.
Therefore, to swap
such notion, I decide to invent a way to turn magic into pure physical energy.
I take inspiration
from Hinata’s “Disintegration”, entrusting 『Great Sage』 to turn it into
By entrusting all
calculation, it was easy to put it into practical use.
I create several
hundred thousand floating water droplets in my surroundings.
Far up in the sky,
there are several dozen giant floating water droplets similar to convex lens.
The convex lens shaped
water droplets up in the sky receives sunlight and converge it into a thin
line, down below the water droplets form reflective mirror array, that is used
to converge it more.
The water droplets are
created by me with water spirit energy.
Thus the sunlight,
that the water droplets reflect, converges to become as thin as a pencil and
its temperature reaches thousand degrees.
All the water droplets
capture and converge the sunlight energy, this is reflection converging magic.
This is my new magic,
<Physics Magic> “God’s Wrath (Megiddo)”.
At the first
simultaneous firing, no less than 1,000 soldiers were vaporized.
Below me, the march
became chaotic; God’s Wrath (Megiddo) is instilling panic.
Of course this is not
Using the most optimum
calculation, by adjusting the position, the second attack commences.
Not able to resist it
more than 1,000 soldiers perish.
This magic has a
frightening aspect. That is, the energy cost is low.
The water droplets
created by the magic at the final point of the firing, will evaporate and
disappear because of the heat, but it’s possible to replace them in an instant.
For that reason, I use
water spirit magic. The water can be created without using too much energy.
This process can
finish under one minute, and then it’s possible to fire it again. After all, I
only need to replace the water and adjust its position.
And, the magic power
is only needed to maintain the water spirit.
The energy source that
contributed the most is the symbol of natural energy, The Sun.
The only problem is
that it’s only usable at daytime, but it’s daytime right now.
All problems are
cleared, now I can finally clean those people (Trash) below me.
Without any sound the
hit comes with the speed of light, not letting the soldiers to resist, they all

Soldiers with poor
armor, Knights with superior metal armor.
They all killed
equally without any differences.
However, I don’t aim
at a particularly splendid carriage.
It’s uncertain if the

Just a while ago, the
troop morale was high; they all had full confidence in victory......
The veteran knights
who survived through many battle, from unknown direction light comes and
penetrate their chest rewarding them an instant death.
The still young
volunteer soldiers, trying to escape without understanding what had happened.
The dispatched knights
from the Church had full confidence in their barrier, but those barriers were
meaningless, I sneer when they were decapitated.

with his collapsing mind.
No matter how you look
at it, the military endeavor had failed. To escape with their life from this
hellscape, but it’s already too late, that won’t happen.
Why did it turn out
like this...? No, that is not important right now.
「Folgen… what should… what should we do?」
He asked his
dependable knight leader.

In fear and confusion.
He said with his voice mixed with anger, he tap the knight leader’s shoulder.
Shaking violently, his
sturdy body tilts, and collapse.
If you observed him
closely, his temporal region was gone, the brain had leaked out.
King Edomalis shout in
horror, he fall down and unable to stand due to fear in his carriage.
The carriage is an
open type, it was used to boost everyone’s morale but now it had backfired.
While discharging warm
liquids from his groins, he tries to escape by crawling.(PR: XD rekt)
Now, he doesn’t care
anymore about his dignity as a King.
Die, if he stays in
here, he will die!!
Falling into state of
panic, he frantically tried to run away.
However, there’s no
one who notices the king appearances. Because every one of them desperately
running for their own life.
The symbol of justice
against monsters are the 1,000 knights of the Church Chivalric Order, however
they had been killed without a chance to do anything.
While they were
inferior to Holy Knights, each of them is equal to a rank B adventurer in term
of battle prowess.
The one who should of

Their fall into panic
is, of course, justified.
At that time, the
soldiers who were petrified by fear, looked towards the sky.
King Edomalis also
looked at the sky.
Someone was descending
from the sky, a person with a black bat-like wing.
The persons height was
rather small, wearing a beautiful mask
On that mask, there is
a crack that made it seem like it was crying.
Wearing a sublime
beautiful black kimono, with beautiful black hide armor on the outside.
That person didn’t
carry any weapon.
That person is a

It’s a Demon Lord! His
At that time, at last,
the king realized the grand mistake that he had made.
It is not something
you can fight against.
The one Burmund

The Demon Lord in

The Demon Lord in
front of him must be the ruler of that city.
That means, Hinata
Sakaguchi from the Church, did it means that she failed!? (TL: In this world
given name then family name.)
That calculating cruel
witch, it had been said that she has never failed in her task.
But, it wouldn’t be
strange if it was someone who surpassed that witch.
This Demon had such an
aura emanating from it.
For all that, it’s a
fact that can only be accepted. This Demon carries the same appearance that is
similar to a Demon Lord......
No, there is still a
chance. At that moment, an idea flashed inside the king’s mind.
I am a King, I might
be able to talk away to it and negotiate! That is a skillful line of reason,
after returning to the country I can prepare a counterattack.
If he is the opponent
who gladly conducted negotiations with Burmund, there is no doubt, it must
prostrate before me, the King of a great nation Falmas Kingdom! Like this...
The king had lost
himself in his foolish thoughts, and he made yet another great mistake.
In this matter, he was
no longer angry self-preservation is the only thought in his head.

「Hiiiiiiiiiiii, he... help!」
Although I heard the

and pierced the middle of his forehead.
It takes time to get
used to it, but now I can control the beam according to my will.
The angle of
reflection is simple, it’s low cost, so I can shoot as many as I like.
If you converge the
heat ray into a single spot, it will reach thousands degrees, so it will arrive
at the point where it is possible to pierce a human with it.
If you had learnt the
principle behind it, it is possible to shoot it optimally at will.
There is only little
time lag, in another words, it is the same as speed of light, if you can see it
then you can’t avoid it.
For example if you
shoot it from 10,000 km, the time for it to reach the target is about 0.034
Even if a human eye
receives information about it, the time for it to be transmitted and reach the
brain is much slower.

that time comes.
Therefore, it is
impossible for a human to dodge it.
