The truth is revealed! Judging by the comments, most of you have already guessed it though 😀 Welcome to the fourth volume!
Ferruit Upheaval Arc
Miri was wholeheartedly climbing Mount Fuji.
Dressed in exercise shoes, a black school uniform (winter wear) and a coat.
With an appearance that looked like she was underestimating the climb up to Mount Fuji even if it is not winter yet, the surrounding climbers looked at her with suspicious gazes and there were some among them who wanted to warn her but they could not speak after getting hit by the spirit she was emitting.
Her eyes were filled with hatred that she had forgotten.
Once … and that was more than a thousand years ago.
At a time called the Heian period.
A girl was destined to die at Mount Fuji.
That girl was touted as a peerless beauty and captivated many men, charming the hearts of the people at that time as well as even the Emperor.
She thought that it was happiness. She thought that she had obtained everything.
Until those men came.
A bunch of Diviners (Onmyoji) visited the Emperor and asked him to calm the anger of Mount Fuji by using her magnificent power.
Putting it simply, using her power meant using her as a human sacrifice.
The Diviners perceived that their own power wouldn’t be able to achieve anything and decided to use her life in exchange for stopping the eruption of Mount Fuji.
And, those Diviners possessed great powers.
To the extent that no matter even if it’s the Emperor, he would also not want to turn them into his enemies.
To the extent that it could be thought to be cheap to be able to settle it by only having to offer a single girl.
And, she was allowed to be taken away.
To the summit of Mount Fuji.
There, she was meant to have her body burn and pass away.
However, she did not die.
Goddess — The Gods of Otherworld transported her body to the different world.
And, using the power bestowed upon her by the Goddess — she reincarnated as a demon and after living for hundreds of years, she became a Demon Lord.
It was then that she named herself Famiris‧Rariti.
12 years ago, she was sealed by the Hero and her soul was sent to Japan.
Then, she was surprised when she was incarnated as a Japanese.
That the country had changed to that extent in only a thousand years.
Then, when she grew up and became able to read, she found out.
In the end, due to her reincarnation into the different world, she did not fulfill her role as a true human sacrifice and Mount Fuji erupted multiple times during the Heian period, causing many sacrifices.
And, there was one more fact.
She found out that her own death and her own name was beautified as the tale of Kaguya Hime.
Not knowing if the power of the Goddess was incomplete or it was due to other factors, that tale was left behind as the oldest tale in Japan.
Of course, including the era, a lot of the content was vastly different from the historical fact but the jobs of her parents at that time and the fact that her name was named after the treasure that they were asked to search for by nobles at that time, it was without a doubt that she was the model of the story.
She could only give a bitter smile at how the messenger to Mount Fuji was written as a messenger from the moon.
It’s probably because Mount Fuji at that time was the land where the moon comes out from when viewed from the capital.
Even so, Kaguya — Famiris‧Rariti — no, Kusunoki Miri was about to grab hold onto peace.
Getting reincarnated, meeting Onii, spending peaceful days, she was also grateful to the hero who drove her off into this peaceful world.
In spite of that, her peace crumbled.
So, she made her move.
Arriving at the summit of Mount Fuji, without worrying about the gazes from her surroundings, she took out a single kitchen knife and, without hesitation, pierced her own heart.
Then, the surrounding people no longer noticed anything.
That day’s breakfast was the same as last night’s dinner, it was very delicious.
“Amazing, it’s this different just by using the magic kitchen knife to make the dish.”
The delicious food that was I relishing in, cooked by the aunt from the inn, made me feel better.
They were the same stir-fried potato and meat but she prepared 2 of the same, one by using the magic kitchen knife and one without.
The difference in taste was evident.
“It seems like Kannon is really not just a simple con artist.”
“Of course. If it’s my ally, the real Kannon, she can easily make an iron cutting sword that can also cut konnyaku jelly.”
“Whether an iron cutting sword can cut konnyaku jelly or not is a secondary feature though.”
As I was conversing with Marina, Haru and Carol made faced that said “Konnyaku jelly?”.
I’m afraid most likely in their imaginations, konnyaku jelly has become an incredibly hard metal.
After we finished having our stir-fried potato and meat, we discussed on how to proceed after this.
Carol had obtained reports at the northern border town that the valley road leading to the southern border town has caved in.
Yesterday, Carol also acquired information from within the town that it would still take some time before the road can be cleared.
Because of that, it seemed like we would be staying in this town for now.
“For now, like we have discussed last night, Haru will accept monster subjugation requests from the Adventurers Guild and we will go with the strategy of killing 3 birds with 1 stone, earn experience, earn money and raise Haru’s Adventurer’s rank.”
Mainly, we will raise Carol’s Temptress level.
In the first place, it is not necessary to intentionally use the Temptress skill to raise its level.
Apparently, its level will increase just by exterminating monsters by becoming a Temptress in the day.
Of course, we also forgot about that fact because Carol herself recognized Temptress as a job that calls monsters at night.
I pierced a potato with a fork.
The potato crumbled into 3 pieces from that attack.
Leaving the town, unlike yesterday, it seemed like something happened as there were a lot of people making noise.
Although it’s a different time now compared to yesterday, not only did the Adventurers’ appearances stand out, there were also many Peddlers with packed luggage seemingly about to leave the town.
Passing by in front of the stables, it should have been full like how it was yesterday but now half of the horses were gone.
It seemed like something happened and they were trying to escape the town.
“Shall I go ask?”
Carol asked so I requested for her to do so.
Carol jogged and approached some housewives who were having small talk.
As if it was natural, like she was an old friend of theirs, Carol entered the small talk and after conversing for a few minutes, she jogged back.
“Apparently, late at night yesterday, an Adventurer came to notify the townsmen that there was a herd of monsters approaching the town.”
“I see … so that’s why the Merchants are escaping and the Adventurers are running around to gather information. When would the monsters arrive?”
“2 days later at the earliest but the scout troops of this country has set off to verify the authenticity of the claim and if it is found to be true, this country’s army would sortie to exterminate the monsters. Because of that, the people in this town are more worried that instead of monsters, Korat would take this opportunity to attack.”
I’d like to help if it’s fighting monsters but if it’s fighting fellow humans then I’ll refuse.
“Along with that, the monster subjugation quests in the Adventurers Guild has all been canceled and became an emergency quest to join the defense of this town.”
“I see. Then, maybe we’ll just exterminate the monsters around this town for now. Marina also needs to train with a bow.”
I said in an easygoing manner.
Maybe because I’m Japanese, I don’t think that wars would happen so easily .
So you have it, the fourth volume has begun.
As most have already guessed, Miri’s true identity is that of a former Otherworld resident and former Demon lord.
I planned to write Miri’s story in first person but I decided to write in third person after all.
Shuraba Incoming! Imouto is coming to retrieve her Onii!
New story, My little sister is too cute to be a Demon Lord
“My Cute Sister Can’t be a Demon Lord”
“There no way the Demon Lord is my Cute Little Sister.”
Well I’ve apparently missed all the speculation in the past chapters’ comments. I for one was very surprised that Miri used to be the demon lord. It certainly explains her otherwordly knowledge about the goddesses though.
still, it doesn’t explain why goddess (Koshmar IIRC) wonder wether or not Ichinosuke really had Imouto, when Ichinosuke ask her about his imouto. because from Miri backstory, either former otherworlder, demon lord, or reincarnation, it is without a doubt, a fact that Miri is Ichinosuke imouto.
Except when she was sealed by the Hero she was forcibly put into his family, like how when you’re summoned to the other world, you cease to exist in our world. So they’re technically not related at all.
it is not about technically related or not, it is about a fact that she is his imouto. When Koshmar wonder whether Ichinosuke had imouto or not, I think that Miri is an existence that manipulate Ichinosuke memory so that she can became his imouto, and this argument is strengthened when Miri had a monologue about their parent.
Well, what i thought, was, that in a sense of fate, miri was not supposed to be reincarnated. We already know, that the goddesses are not allknowing and all-seeing. So for koshmar it was probably like seeng a formular, of what the MCs life was supposed to be, so Miri was never mentioned in the files, since her reincarnation bakck to earth was not planned, but happened thanks to the heroes interfering
I remember that in one of the chapters miri says that the parents didnt realize miri & Jo werent their children so i think Jo might be the emperor in the kaguya story or an attendent/lover when she was demon lord
It could be that Miri continued to exist as “Kaguya Hime” after she was reborn/transported back to Earth. It could be that God from Earth helped give her second chance just like how Goddesses from otherworld gave Ichinojo another chance? Just previously I posted my thought which I wanted to post for a long time, since I connected time theory and Demon Lords similarity with Miris’ name. Now it was proven correct. I am going to take another shot and say those 2 clown heroes (pairs, ridding donkey) are mother and father of Ichinojo

Well i knew it just know that miri was maou at ichinojo currently stay.
Well, it interesting because ichinojou the clock begin to tick again, ex maou searching for his onii chan , heroes moving to seal maou, and our mc is , may i call it ignorance is a bless? Hhehe
Thanks for the new chapter! o_O I didn’t expect Miri to be the former Demon Lord.
Man, it would have been way more dramatic hearing miri’s background told by her after a surprise reveal. Author made it really borish by giving it away this simple.
The clues were there that miri was the demon lord and yes the author tends to dull surprises in this novel, everything turns into a light read even tragedies are glossed over. Theres no [OMFG WHAT THE HELL IS THAT ] moments in this novel… the mc is easygoing and even the narrator parts are done with a pov similar to the mc… so even if the ichino’s parents try to kill him now, the novel would go like: oh mom and day are trying to kill me… i wonder what should we have for dinner ?
I prefer stories without that shojo manga-like drama that builds up in 30 volumes, we have enough info to know the motivations of various characters without losing the fluffiness.
So I wobder who is the real enemy.
your spelling mistakes
Demons sure have long life-spans.
Well… it’s shocking.. though not really, but still, to know that miri is THE MAOU… what would happen if ichino finds out…
Clues were there, from my pvo it would be strange for her NOT to be the maou and Knowing ichino’s personality he would go like: do u have a big castle ? did u delete my browsing history ? why aren’t u at school?!
uwohh the tragedy of her past life is too much!!
but if she back won’t she became a demon lord again???
I hope she meet ichino and be happy again!!
Kinda obvious shes gonna be maou again with all the clues… unless the author trolls us like the author of “my disciple died yet again” ( complete troll ) proly wont be so happy tho, if she takes responsibility as maou, she will have to do “maou stuff” meaning she will only visit him in secret and hes gonna end up saving her …
Random Internet User (tm)
Thank you kindly for the chapter!
Thanks for the chapter
What I’m wondering now is what’s going to happen exactly to Miri, does the seal break and she’s still the maou, does she get transported like Ichino and isn’t the maou anymore or something else entirely? I did think she was Kaguya hime, and a transported person but not The Maou.
Thanks for the translation ✌.
I wonder if Haru would admire Miri as a demon lord.
I wonder , would miri reincarnated in her demon lord body or she will get a new body that not demon?
yeah she is comming but she definitely is going to be in this world demon lord form lol
In peerless beauty appearance?
The foreshadowing… Huuu
I got this one right, yay me *insert clapping sfx. Apparently imouto chan love her brother so what’s it gonna be now, MC fight the world + goddess to defend his sister or there gonna be a fight between them (ofc without them knowing they are fighting each other).
Do you know what would ve funkci? If she died And didn’t reincanate
That won’t happen, beacuse this is prologue
MC needs to protect his demon lord sister, with his demon waifu Haru xD
Oh my what a surprise friendly absurdly conspicious, ultra lucky, good at everything, that knows about the goddesses and the otherworld imouto was in fact the demon lord
The good: Yandere imouto get (I mean she obviously wants to kill the the goddesses that took her onii-chan away)
The bad: She probably knows his browsing history
Thanks for the chapter, this author going by the route of imouto yandere …. we accept this is already above brocon rsrsr, in fact she is not blood sister so traverse the line is ok, I want to see her face when to see the harem kkkkkk
Just for curiosity Miri is going to the fantasy world in her current human chield body or in her old demon king body?
So, mirin is a demon lord and also a hardcore yandere brocon. I wonder if the mc’s identity is also special, like her lover who died in this fantasy world but was reincarnated a few years earlier than her or something, that’d be cool.
I’d like to help if it’s fighting monsters but if it’s fighting fellow humans then I’ll refuse.
…japanese people are always such pussies. Learn from chinese novels on this, tsk. I’ really going to have to read one after this to fulfill my desire for a hardcore mc with no mercy and idiotic morals. Anyway, the mc already killed a few humans, seems he’s degraded into someone who can’t do so now. I do get the idea of not wanting to be involved in their war, but the way the author puts it here, it’s mainly because they’re human.
Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)
Imouto-chan is coming~
The flow of time is so fucked up. Some places suggest it being the same.(the gap since the maou was sealed is the same in both worlds) the author says time is faster in other world but at the same time says it was over a thousand years ago in earth but a couple hundred years of living in otherworld .wtf is going on with the time????
Uhh, the next chapter button doesn’t take me to the next chapter?
