79. Heroes confusion

Heading back to my seat I can see my fan union looking on with faces filled with rapture.

“Arnos-sama is the best!”

“Yeah! He can do anything he wants! I’ll follow him for the rest of my life!”

“Me too! That teacher though. Isn’t he the best and highest ranked teacher here who even teachers the heroes? My opinion of him is ruined now. How bad is it when your understanding of hero magic is less than a student from the demon king academy?”

“Arnos-sama might have done too much. I actually feel a little sorry for those students.”

“What should I do!? I’ve just noticed something amazing!”

“………I have a bad feeling about this but I’ll ask. What have you noticed?”

“Demon swords are also a boys thing right? They are all about their demon sword.”

“……….I don’t think demon sword really has that meaning…….”

“What about holy swords then?”

“………!? Arnos-sama dual-wields!”

Kyaaaaaaaaaaa! Their voices ring out.

Looking over at the hero students half look confused at the sudden overwhelming momentum coming from our side and the other half look humiliated as well as confused.

“That surprised me a bit.” (Ledoriano)

Ledoriano pushed his glasses up with his index finger

“But thanks to your display I understand it now. Overwhelming magic knowledge, a tremendous amount of magic power, and the technique to manipulate magic only meant for the heroes.” (Ledoriano)

Looking at me with his cold look Ledoriano speaks confidently

“Arnos Voldigod. You are the demon king of tyranny reborn.” (Ledoriano)

Laughter breaks out from the demon king academy side.

“Fuhahaha. Oi, what are you saying? Stop looking for an excuse just because Arnos answered your question.”

“Aah. He can’t tell the difference between black clothes and white clothes. How embarrassing.”

“Lay off hero side. Don’t you know anything about the demon king academy?”

“If you know then stop talking.”

“No matter how amazing it is Arnos’ magic has no value. I suppose a human like you wouldn’t get it.”

Ledoriano’s face starts to take on a dubious look. It seems this was outside of his expectations.

“If you say that he is not the demon king of tyranny then who is he?” (Ledoriano)

Ledoriano pursues it sharpy but even that question is ridiculed.

“Ledoriano-kun was it?”

The 3rd year student Libest speaks up.

“You seem somewhat familiar with the magic of the mazoku but do you know what the academy badges we wear represent?” (Libest)

“Of course. They represent your ability to be a demon emperor after taking the magic power and aptitude tests. The shape is always either polygonal or a star in a circle and the more sides or points there are the better you are.” (Ledoriano)

“Heeee. So its always a star or a pentagram huh? Then tell me what shape is Arnos’ badge?” (Libest)

Ledoriano looks at my badge and its not a star or a polygon.

“…….A cross…….I don’t have any information on that……” (Ledoriano)

“That, Ledoriano-kun is the brand of the inept. In the entire history of the demon king academy, Arnos is the most distant from the existence known as the demon king of tyranny. If you call him the demon king in Deiruheido everyone will laugh at you.” (Libest)

Following on from Libest some of the other 3rd years speak up.

“That’s right. Even the headmaster of the demon king academy has never bothered to meet him.”

“How embarrassing to mistake that inept person for the demon king of tyranny.”

“Arnos is not accepted by anybody back home.”

Perhaps they were still angry about their treatment earlier but all the royals were riled up and getting even angrier about me being called the demon king of tyranny.

“……You are branding him inept when he has all that power? If that’s the case then what are the top students like?” (Ledoriano)

Ledoriano gulps and starts to look a bit scared.

It looks like the atmosphere created between me and the royals these last 2 months hasn’t been investigated by the hero academy yet. Looking at it from the sides like the heroes it must be difficult to grasp the current situation.

“……..Arent they just bluffing to hide him…..?” Laos whispers to Ledoriano who shakes his head.

“The demon king of tyranny is held in such high regard in Deiruheido that they won’t even speak his name. There’s no way they’d insult him even if acting and they would definitely never give him the brand of the inept even to hide him…….” (Ledoraino)

“Then what are you saying? That Deigo-sensei is inferior in magic knowledge to an inept non-conformist?” (Laos)

“Even if it’s only this one time please calm down Laos.” (Ledoriano)

“Calm down! It’s not just magic its a heroes magic!”

Laos stands up and addresses me.

“Oi, you. Arnos Voldigod. Are you the demon king of tyranny?” (Laos)

“I am.” (Arnos)

“Wha……”

Laos suddenly turns cautious at my acknowledgement.

“I’ll teach you something. The name of the demon king of tyranny is Arnos Voldigod. Your history books and textbooks are wrong so you’d better rewrite them.” (Arnos)

“……..What did……you just say…..” (Laos)

Laos looks confused which is to be expected since they were taught another name and now I’ve told him to doubt that.

“Oi oi. Look at him. That lie of yours is growing old now Arnos.”

“You should understand with this. Don’t believe that inept persons lie.”

“First off he’s not even a royal. He can’t be the reincarnation of the demon king because he hasn’t fully inherited his blood for the founder to reincarnate into!”

The royals begin jeering.

“Fumu. Don’t worry about what those fellows are saying. Also, I’m not bothered if you acknowledge me as the demon king of tyranny or not.” (Arnos)

Laos gets angry again.

“…….What’s going on!?………I don’t understand any of this……!” (Laos)

Fumu. I guess if people don’t have an answer they selfishly decide on one and look away from the truth that is all around them.

No. Actually, it’s quite a funny spectacle.

“Alright alright. Everyone stop being noisy.” (Menou)

Menou claps her hands and calms the students down.

“Diego sensei the question about <Nedora> was ours so its the hero classes next.” (Menou)

“Aah, that’s right.” (Diego)

Diego turns to the class to select someone.

“Fumu. Don’t get too excited about the next question. Try not to give the wrong answer this time okay” (Arnos)

Diego stiffened at my words.

“You can’t say that Arnos-kun. It was just a mistake by Diego-sensei. It’s impossible for the dean of the hero academy to make a mistake with hero magic. Right sensei?” (Menou)

Menou gets a little revenge on Diego in return for earlier.

“*Cough* It seems we might have to change our plans a little. I want to continue this little ice breaker but it seems better to move on to the next class.” (Diego)

Escape while there’s still chance huh?

“Eeh? is the hero academy running away?”

“That’s right. Things were getting good.”

“We both have a draw with one correct answer each. Any more than this and they’ll lose.”

“How can we lose if even their sensei gives the wrong answer?”

As expected from my fellow mazoku, they just blast away with a straight delivery.

“….Don’t be stupid. As if we can lose in our own school. Let’s continue for a while sensei. The pride of the hero academy needs to be shown a little.” (Heine)

Deigo walks over to Heine and scolds him in a whisper.

“Are you going to shame me even further in front of the mazoku….!” (Diego)

Heine has a confused expression on his face.

Deigo shrugs his shoulders like he’s given up and returns.

“Class is resumed.” (Diego)

Kuhahaha. What was that? I’m starting to feel sorry for Heine and the others having such a small fry teacher.

Compared to this guy even Emilia felt more like a teacher.
