Homura Kisaragi

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


“Eiko! GET DOWN!!”

I brandished my sword, stumbling now and then in the desert sand. The softball field was nothing compared to this treacherous foothold.

Bookmark here

Regardless, I couldn’t afford to miss. My companions would die unless I kept throwing strikes.Bookmark here

I threw the ball of fire in my right hand with all my might, and it whizzed dangerously close to Eiko’s head.

Bookmark here

Ka-blam! The fireball struck the monster in its face and pulverized it. I remembered Eiko calling this creature made out of sand a golem.

“My bad! Thanks, Homura!”

Bookmark here

Eiko and I, who specialized in long-range attacks, would be at a considerable disadvantage if we allowed the golems to get close to us.

Bookmark here

However, these creatures could take a lot of damage. They were a menace to our group, which lacked close-range combatants.

Bookmark here

“Yikes, I can’t charm them since they don’t have any eyes.”

Bookmark here

Moreover, we couldn’t rely on Ai’s skill.

Bookmark here

“Can I leave since I can’t do anything?”

Bookmark here

If I’d known that, I wouldn’t have brought Ai with us. Kanako and Fumika’s skills were no use either and only served as a diversion at most.

Bookmark here

“Eiko! Hang in there just a bit longer!”

Bookmark here

“Dammit. Wouldya say we’re in the bottom of the ninth inning now, Homura Kisaragi?”

Bookmark here

There were still hordes of golems milling about. More like we’d just finished the bottom of the first inning.

Bookmark here

Still, we had no choice but to keep going. One of us had to do it.Bookmark here

I just hated the fact that things were going Tsukasa’s way.Bookmark here

When I get back, I’d like to have a word, no, sock him one instead.Bookmark here


“There’s a desert on the other side of this ravine with multiple monsters at its entrance. I’d like your unit to act as the spearhead.”

Bookmark here

Tsukasa had summoned me to his office.Bookmark here

Since he didn’t use his General skill to command me, I didn’t reply with the usual “sir, yes, sir.”

Bookmark here

“Why aren’t you using your skill?”

Bookmark here

“I figured you’d accept without me having to use it, SSG Homura Kisaragi.”

Bookmark here

“As if! You’re going to sacrifice us, just like you did with Section Four. What makes you think I’d accept your request?”

Bookmark here

“I see. Very well.”

Bookmark here

Tsukasa raised his right hand, and Yuichi, who had been standing next to him, saluted in reply.

Bookmark here

“Bring me SSG Yachiyo Kisaragi, the commanding officer of Section Three. I’ll assign this task to her unit.”

Bookmark here

“Why you...!”

Bookmark here

“If I’m not mistaken, Sergeant Seno is also in that unit. I believe Sergeant Yazawa has a crush on her, doesn’t he? I’d ask for his opinion too if I were you.”

Bookmark here

There was no need for that. Eiko would, without a doubt, volunteer to lead the way. The same could be said for me.

Bookmark here

“You’re going to die a slow and painful death, Tsukasa.”

Bookmark here

“I know. I’ve made peace with my fate.”Bookmark here


I’m fighting to protect my sister, and Eiko, for the person he loves. We can’t afford to lose.Bookmark here

Even if the opponent has an insurmountable lead, we can’t give up until the very end.

Bookmark here

“Let’s go, Eiko! Shut them out!”

Bookmark here

“AAARGH!!”

Bookmark here

Hundreds of fireballs and arrows of light rained upon the golems.Bookmark here


Despite our efforts, the creatures showed no signs of stopping. Bookmark here
