Tsukasa Kohinata

I’m Taking Revenge for My Murdered Classmates Using Weapons Made from Their Souls

“Ando reporting for duty, General Kohinata!”

One night had passed at our campsite.Bookmark here


Bookmark here

The troops had set up camp with their own units and were resting within walled-off enclosures that Sergeant Makabe had built.Bookmark here


Bookmark here

Corporal Ando had just returned from his rounds to report his findings.Bookmark here


Bookmark here

“I’ve confirmed the following three to be missing: Corporal Itusko Usa, Sergeant Shoko Sasaki, and Corporal Mirai Tokito.”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

The three miscreants had deserted their posts according to plan.Bookmark here


Bookmark here

In fact, I’d purposely assigned them to the same unit to nudge them in that direction.Bookmark here

Abandoning too many people from the start would have likely caused a mutiny, so I was thankful that they’d chosen to leave of their own accord.Bookmark here

“Reassign the remaining two members, SSG Yayoi Akatsuki to Section One and Sergeant Fumika Noda to Section Two.”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

“Sir, yes, sir!”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

I knew there was no way we would all make it out of this in one piece.Bookmark here

Retaking the castle while being attacked by mythical creatures such as dragons and goblins wasn’t something we could accomplish with zero casualties.Bookmark here

When I acquired the General skill, I decided to divide my classmates into two camps: those that deserved to be saved and those who didn’t.Bookmark here


Bookmark here

“One more thing, General Kohinata. The commanding officer of Section Four, SSG Tsuyoshi Wanibuchi, would like to see you.”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

“I’ll allow it. Let him through.”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

I motioned with my hand. I had a hunch he would show up soon.Bookmark here


“Section Four.Bookmark here

Commanding officer: SSG Tsuyoshi Wanibuchi.Bookmark here

Second-in-command: Sergeant Kyoya Suzuki.Bookmark here

Troops: Sergeant Kotaro Kato, Sergeant Jiro Sato, and Corporal Hironobu Kume.”Bookmark here


I had my reasons for grouping those five together.Bookmark here

The teenage gangsters of the class were the other nuisance variable.Bookmark here

They needed to be eliminated as well.Bookmark here


“Yo, Tsukasa. Must be nice to be you, eh?”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

“Address me as General while we’re here, SSG Wanibuchi.”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

“My bad, I can’t hear you very well. Could ya speak up, shortstache?”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

He must have plugged his ears.Bookmark here

Tsuyoshi had already figured out the General skill’s weakness.Bookmark here

What a menace. I knew he was too dangerous to have around.Bookmark here


Bookmark here

Although Sergeant Yazawa was said to be the leader of the teenage gang, in reality, SSG Wanibuchi possessed the best hand-to-hand combat skills.Bookmark here


Bookmark here

He also had a powerful physique, second only to SSG Oyama. Add his cruel personality and sharp, predatory instincts to the mix, and he was practically impossible to reign in.Bookmark here


Bookmark here

“We have a simple request. Give us a woman. Those three that were in Section Seven left, right? I don’t care if it’s Fumika or Yayoi. I’m sick of being surrounded by dudes.”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

Where on earth he obtained that information from, I had no idea.Bookmark here

It wasn’t hard to imagine what would happen if I handed over a woman to SSG Wanibuchi’s unit, though.Bookmark here


“Very well. However, there are conditions.”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

Since he couldn’t hear me, I scribbled the following on a piece of paper and gave it to him.Bookmark here

“Eliminate the monsters that are lying in wait for us, unassisted.”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

Tsuyoshi hooted upon reading my note.Bookmark here


Bookmark here

“Challenge accepted. Man, I’m getting amped up!”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

This way, I could get rid of both monsters and Section Four.Bookmark here

If it meant keeping more of us alive, I was more than happy to sell my soul to the devil.Bookmark here


Bookmark here

“I wish you luck, SSG Wanibuchi.”Bookmark here


Bookmark here

I saluted Tsuyoshi as he departed.Bookmark here


Bookmark here

“See you in hell. I’ll catch you later.”Bookmark here


Unable to hear my parting remark due to his earplugs, SSG Wanibuchi ignored me and headed out to the battlefield without looking back.Bookmark here
