Masou Gakuen HxH:Volume 12 Chapter 2
Chapter 2 – The Enemy That Must Not be Defeated
「Is that so……I did something like that.」
Odin looked down sadly.
Kizuna, Reiri, Kei, Landred, and also Gertrude were conversing anew with Odin who regained her self.
Odin whose thought patterns were returned to a state like in the past was literally a changed person. Her features became gentle, and her personality, her thoughts, her speech and conduct were also leaving no trace of the severe ruler before this. Odin who took off her armor and wore a thin and elegant cloth was truly endowed with the style of a goddess.
Reiri stole a glance at Landred beside her.
Odin’s figure had vague similarities with Queen Landred. It must be because things like Odin’s castle and outfit design were similar to Baldein that Landred governed.
And then, this world of Odin also accomplished a change in appearance.
The thick clouds cleared up and the light of the sun shined in from the sky, while the snow was starting to melt. The snow piled up on the temple was also completely melted, the overflowing water was flowing down the slope, making a river. The sun and river melted the snow falling and piling up on the ground, the glacier became a large river, and the frozen sea was flowing in.
Greenery sprouted from the land that appeared underneath the snow, the forest of withered trees also took back its vitality and changed into a verdant forest.
Odin’s residence in the past, the temple that was already a ruin was also resurrected like a young tree. Just like how trees grew, the temple’s pillars and walls were lengthening up by themselves. The pillars grew up and leaves were growing from them. Their figure was like a big tree.
「The me at that time……those who win and survive a struggle for existence are superior, and the inferior only stand in the way of evolution──that was what I was thinking.」
‘Even though that wasn’t my intention’, Odin muttered.
Landred turned a mournful look at Odin.
「How did it turn out like that……?」
Odin shook her head sideways with an apologetic look.
「Somewhere in the way, I became weird. At first it was a small change. While I was hastening the evolution and putting out improved plans, before I realized, it was turning into an extreme method……eventually, I prioritized the overall worth and merit and the individual worth became something light.」
When Odin smiled faintly, Reiri and Kizuna, and then Gertrude who was stiffening from nervousness besides them were staring at her.
「However, exactly because there are diverse existences and worth that various ways of fighting are created. For me who was focused only on an aspect of strength to reach the limits and defeated by someone who I thought to be unnecessary might be only natural in a sense.」
Gertrude was at a loss of how to reply.
「I’m planning to remake this world into a world where various sense of values can coexist together from now on. Really thank you very much.」
Odin cast down her eyes as though bowing. She then raised her voice ‘ah’ as though noticing something.
「I have to return this back.」
A red crystal was placed on the palm of the hand Odin held out. That was the configuration information of the world of Kizuna and the others, Lemuria, and the world of Grace and the others, Vatlantis. The thing that was the collection of a part of that.
Landred gestured for Reiri to take it. Reiri moved towards Odin and picked up the crystal while feeling somewhat nervous.
It was unclear just from seeing whether it was Lemuria’s data or Vatlantis’s. However, with this one of the worlds should be able to be restored as before.
「Odin, there is one thing that I want to ask.」
Reiri questioned the one eyed goddess. Odin tilted her head slightly and smiled gently.
「What could it be?」
Reiri was at a loss for words for a moment. This goddess was an opponent who she faced in a mortal combat just now, it was hard to believe this situation so suddenly.
「……We are going to defeat Thanatos after this. But that machine god possesses tremendous strength. I want to ask if there is something, a weak point or a conquer method against her.」
Odin frowned with a troubled look.
「I think it’s something really difficult.」
「We know that. That’s why I’m asking you who is a machine god like her and also her comrade.」
「Let’s see……if it’s all of you, then perhaps you will be able to defeat her.」
Hope grew inside Kizuna’s heart hearing that.
「But, at that time it will be the time that spells the end of all worlds.」
Kizuna stared at Odin’s face in shock. Reiri also lost her words from surprise. She pulled herself back together and asked.
「What does that mean? Say it in a way we can understand.」
「Let’s see, for example……」
Odin put forward her palm. Then white cold air gathered above her palm and a lump of ice appeared. When she flipped her palm, the ice lump fell on the floor and broke.
「When my hand let go, the ice fell to the floor.」
Reiri frowned. She couldn’t understand what Odin was going to say.
「That’s because there is gravity right?」
「That’s right. And then if a force is added from the fall, it will break. And then if heat is added, it will become water and evaporate.」
The lump of ice on the floor melted in the blink of an eye and became water.
Kei typed on her keyboard expressionlessly.
『Simple physical law. There is nothing particularly mysterious about it.』
「This is an example. This kind of law rules over this world. But what if this kind of law didn’t exist in this world?」
Kei’s fingertips stopped above her keyboard.
「This world, and also your world. Inherent laws exists in all the worlds. That kind of law defines each world, forming the world by carrying out decision like this. The world moves by that kind of rule. If that kind of rule didn’t exist, all worlds will become simple chaos, unable to maintain existence.」
Kei operated her keyboard while sweating coldly.
『I understand what you want to say. If all the laws are gone, a world won’t be able to maintain their form. Any kind of substance won’t be allowed to exist. But, what is the relation between that and Thanatos?』
Odin closed her eyes.
「All the rules of our world──are created and maintained by Thanatos.」
Reiri’s face stiffened.
「Even if for argument’s sake you are able to defeat Thanatos, at that moment your world and also my world will surely be annihilated.」
Kizuna recalled Nayuta’s words.
Most likely after her chance meeting with Thanatos, she noticed that fact.
He recalled her words that she whispered almost inaudibly.
『……No matter what kind of method we use, it’s impossible to defeat Thanatos.』
The Battleship Oldium was advancing through the space at the interstice with another world.
The Battleship Ataraxia that was destroyed from the fierce fighting against Odin was abandoned, while the Golden Dragon that received great damage from its emergency landing and had difficulty to sail was also similarly abandoned.
Odin shared some magic power with Nayuta, but the best she could do was repairing one ship.
「But, I’m recovering my consciousness slightly. I think I will be able to walk after some more time passes.」
Nayuta raised half her body from the bed and slurped roasted green tea.
Kizuna who was sitting beside the bed was staring at her with wonder.
He wondered, in the end, just how did he feel about his mother. It was hard to forgive her when he remembered about the past. However, deep in his heart, looking at her figure recovering some vitality like this caused him to be undeniably relieved.
「What’s wrong, Kizuna?」
Nayuta was looking up at Kizuna in wonder.
「A, aah……just thinking, you’re looking well.」
Nayuta smiled widely. That smile was the smile of a little girl, without any worry in it.
「Yes, fortunately. It’s thanks to Odin. I was also able to talk with her a little.」
Reiri who was standing at the other side of the bed across from Kizuna was crossing her arms while looking down on her mother.
「Talk? I didn’t see anything like that……」
‘Fufufu’ Nayuta leaked out a chuckle and stared at Reiri boastfully.
「Fellow gods are able to talk secretly you know♪」
「……What kind of conspiracy is that huh?」
「It’s still a secret. In order to trick the enemy, you first start from your ally, there is that kind of saying right?」
Reiri’s face scowled hard.
「I don’t get your reason for tricking your ally. However, the point of how to trick the enemy is important. Do you have some kind of plan?」
Nayuta stared still at the teacup she was holding and put it on her mouth one more time.
It was unclear whether she was putting on an air or that she found it hard to say. Kizuna spoke out something that diverted a little from the topic.
「……Kaa-san, you noticed Thanatos’s true nature didn’t you?」
「Yes. Previously when we fought Thanatos.」
「Is there nothing else that we can do anymore?」
Nayuta reached out her hand to the table beside her pillow and put the teacup there.
「We haven’t lost all options.」
Kizuna’s body unconsciously leaned forward.
「Please think about it. Any kind of method is fine.」
「──For example, we can stay in Odin’s world without leaving it and live using that world as our new home. In fact Odin invited us exactly with that offer you know?」
Even Reiri heard that for the first time.
「Are you considering it?」
Reiri shook her head. Even if she considered it, it was unthinkable that she would accept that invitation.
「Other than that?」
Nayuta looked down and stared at her own hands that were joined together on the blanket.
「There is one more idea. It’s a bit troublesome, but with this method surely the laws of all the worlds can be kept preserved while making Thanatos powerless.」
Kizuna’s eyes were shining with the light of hope.
「Really!? If there is such a way then tell us earlier!」
「But, for that, Kizuna and──Reiri’s cooperation is necessary.」
When she lifted her face, Nayuta stared at Reiri’s eyes.
The eyes of the mother looked like they wanted to say something. As though there was some kind of truth they wished to bring to attention. Reiri felt like that.
「──The situation is like this. I’ll listen to whatever you say. Try saying it.」
The insides of Oldium that had a total length of two thousand meters was more vast than imagined. Inside the great battleship that could even be called as a flying palace, there were facilities prepared as though to move the government system of Vatlantis in its entirety there. But even with that, there was still unused areas in the interior.
One of the several conference rooms was exclusive for Vatlantis’s emperor and her aides. Although it was at the smallish side, it was an extravagant meeting room. The important people of each world were gathered there.
From Lemuria, Hida Reiri, Kizuna, Shikina Kei.
From Vatlantis, Grace, Zelcyone.
From Izgard, Gravel.
From Baldein, Landred.
And then Aine──she was sitting beside Grace, closer to Vatlantis than Lemuria.
It wasn’t Aine who chose that seating. However, the events flowed naturally like that and no one complained about it.
In reality Vatlantis’s emperor was Grace, but formally Aine was the legitimate successor. Grace herself also recognized that she was only a replacement until her big sister returned.
Until now they only concentrated to escape from Odin’s world, and there was no leeway to think of such a matter. But, they were able to safely escape and reunite with everyone, so the worry that Aine almost forgot showed up once more.
Each faction was sitting clumped with their own with the round table divided into four parts. Aine’s eyes met with the eyes of Kizuna who was sitting at the opposite side. Aine immediately averted her gaze.
──’What am I doing?’
Reiri’s sharp voice resounded and Aine straightened her seated posture.
「First I want to make a report regarding the present situation. Currently we are in the middle of formulating a strategy for the future in cooperation with Hida Nayuta. We will be able to publish the summary of it tomorrow.」
Zelcyone raised her voice at the timing when Reiri’s words cut off.
「Are you saying that you’ve got a prospect to beat Thanatos?」
Reiri paused for a moment as though ruminating that question.
The attendees at Vatlantis’s side stirred.
「Of course, there is no guarantee that it will work. I cannot deny the point that we won’t know the result until we try it. But, it’s worth a try.」
Zelcyone faced Grace and Aine and spoke whisperingly.
「──Then, perhaps it will be all right to wait for the detailed explanation.」
「But, to advance our consideration, there are two points that we wish to confirm to you ladies.」
Grace frowned at Reiri’s words.
「What are they?」
「First, we want to borrow the emperor’s exclusive villa in Oldium as well as the unused area adjacent of it.」
「Oo, my villa is it.」
An exclusive villa for Grace was built by making use of the vast space inside the ship. It was a moderately large white palace with a garden around it that was planted with lawn and trees. Furthermore there were artificial ponds and a river that were circulating clean water.
「You can use it as you like. However……the unused area is just an empty lot you know? Just what are you going to use it for?」
Kei immediately typed on her keyboard.
『We’re going to make an artificial beach and sea. Also, we will install the facility of wide area type Love Room that had its development halted in the experiment stage previously. The plan is to make the whole area including the villa to be usable as a Love Room.』
Landred spontaneously leaked out a smile.
「My my, you are planning something really outrageous there. I will be looking forward for tomorrow♪ Everyone too, how about we trust headmistress here and leave this to her? Okay?」
Landred’s speech and conduct was still mixed like when she was at Ataraxia Academy that Nayuta created. She wasn’t fixing it at all, so the surrounding also stopped criticizing her every time.
「I have no objection.」
Grace easily replied, then next everyone’s gaze gathered on Gravel.
「Izgard is also the same. We will leave it to Reiri.」
Reiri nodded then she spoke the other matter that she wanted to confirm.
「We have defeated three machine gods. Now we have recovered three fourths of the worlds’ configuration information. With that, at present it’s possible to revive Atlantis.」
Reiri looked around at attendees.
「Here the Atlantis side can adopt the choice to return the world of you ladies back to normal and pull back from the fighting.」
Aine opened her eyes wide in surprise.
Grave tightened her lips into a thin line. Reiri stared at their expression and continued talking.
「We are going to take back the configuration information of Lemuria from here on, and then defeating Thanatos. That’s why knowing that I will ask this. Will you ladies still fight together with us from here on too?」
Reiri stared at the Atlantis force with a serious gaze. Receiving that gaze, the participants of the Atlantis side all made a grim expression.
Aine called her little sister’s name worriedly.
Grace purposefully let out a large sigh and then acted arrogantly with an exasperated air.
「……Here I was thinking just what were you going to say……truly, good grief. If that’s our intention then we would have already said it a long time ago.」
Aine’s expression snapped into a bright smile.
「Nee-sama too, what are you worrying about? Lemuria is Nee-sama’s second hometown. Besides it’s also Nii-sama’s hometown. In the past we fought each other, but right now we are fellow comrades fighting together. Also……」
Grace glanced at Kizuna.
「This is atonement for the enormous damage we brought to Lemuria. We will show you how we save more than what we destroyed with our strength.」
「──I see. Our thanks.」
And then this time Reiri turned to Gravel.
「What about Izgard?」
Gravel too shrugged her shoulders, as though to say ‘what are you saying at this late hour’.
「Of course, we will also fight. After all this for an important──」
Gravel unconsciously turned her gaze to Kizuna.
Kizuna was also staring at Gravel. Their gazes clashed with each other.
Gravel suddenly smiled.
Reiri smiled in relieve.
And then she stared at Landred at the end.
‘What are you going to do?’ Reiri was going to say, but Landred stayed quiet and closed one of her eyes.
That night, Aine was spending her time in Grace’s room. Actually she wanted to talk with Kizuna by spending the whole night──she was thinking like that, but a prohibition order was given from Reiri.
Kizuna had to prepare for the mission tomorrow, and then they would also get summoned early in the morning.
「I wonder what is the strategy that will be disclosed tomorrow?」
Grace was combing her big sister’s hair with a comb while humming.
「Hm? About the headmaster’s talk is it. Who knows? We will know it for sure when tomorrow comes.」
「……Hey, you just called her headmaster.」
「Oo, it’s still coming out intentionally.」
Saying that, Grace laughed in humor.
‘Muu’, Aine puffed out her cheeks in dissatisfaction.
「Was it that fun? That, Ataraxia Academy.」
「That was just extremely fun!」
‘Muuuu’, Aine was getting more and more into a bad mood.
She heard about it since when they were in Odin’s world. She heard that everyone was going to the same Ataraxia Academy that Professor Nayuta created whether they were from Lemuria or Atlantis.
When Gravel and Grace were making the atmosphere lively by talking about their memory there, Aine could do nothing except listen. She was harboring a really complicated feeling of alienation.
It felt like she was a student who was the only one that couldn’t join the outing, unable to join in with the nostalgia talk, and then felt lonely.
However she found it quite hard to imagine that academy’s daily life.
She understood that Reiri was the headmaster.
However it was already impossible to imagine when it came to the point where Nayuta was the board chairman.
Inside Aine, the only image that she had about Nayuta after she became a machine god was only the time when they were locked in a mortal combat with her. She wondered why from there it then turned out like that.
When she tried asking the others, it seemed that Nayuta was putting suggestions into their minds so that they wouldn’t think of it as unnatural at all.
Nevertheless, it was amazing how Grace was attending the class of second year first group in her place.
The best part was Zelcyone. That captain of the Imperial Guards was the student council president of Ataraxia of all things. It was funny no matter how many times she thought of it.
「What’s wrong, Nee-sama? You are making different faces by yourself there for a while.」
「I, I’m not!」
However, before this she saw Hayuru and Hyakurath talking harmoniously with each other as though they had been best friends for many years, the two were giving instructions naggingly to Gravel and Masters, and they were awfully good at looking after others.
Seeing everyone’s exchange, Aine felt for real that the thing called Ataraxia Academy really existed, and that everyone was spending time together there.
Furthermore it was together with Kizuna.
Surely that might be something that could be called as the springtime of youth that Aine didn’t know about.
「Did you say something, Nee-sama?」
「No. It’s nothing.」
Grace finished combing Aine’s hair. Next Aine unraveled Grace’s hair and started brushing.
「However Nee-sama, when the next battle is over, we can finally return back to Vatlantis.」
「But, there is something that I’m curious about.」
Aine took Grace’s pink hair into her hand and put the brush on it. Grace’s hair was really pretty, the brush was sliding through it smoothly without getting stuck.
「What will happen with the Entrance to Lemuria?」
Aine’s hand spontaneously stopped.
「Genesis was restored. Our world won’t get pulled to Lemuria’s magic power anymore. Then, won’t the AU Collision between our worlds not happen?」
──’How can that be?’
「Why is it like that? I don’t understand anything like why AU Collisions happen though.」
「Before this Nayuta explained it to us. AU Collisions are caused because of Atlantis’s magic power drying up.」
「He, hee……is that so.」
But if that was the case.
Going freely from Lemuria to Atlantis and vice versa would become impossible?
「If there is Oldium, it’s possible to move between worlds, but this too is using Nayuta’s power. Seeing her weakening state, then perhaps the day where Oldium also becomes unusable will come.」
「But, if that happens……」
One would be forced to choose between Lemuria or Vatlantis.
At that time,
Which world is it that she should choose?
「Will Nii-sama……come to Atlantis for us?」
「Ki, Kizuna? To Vatlantis?」
Aine asked with a surprised face.
「Why is Nee-sama that surprised? Because isn’t it like that? Nee-sama is the legitimate emperor of Vatlantis. If Nii-sama became the husband of such Nee-sama……it’s only natural for him to come to Vatlantis……it should be.」
‘I……with Kizuna? In Vatlantis?’
Nii-sama came to Vatlantis……I’ll feel happy.」
Aine noticed that her hand stopped moving without her noticing. She moved her arm once more and continued the brushing.
「You’re……right. It might be great, if that happens, right……」
She replied like that.
However, Aine didn’t understand herself, what she was wishing to happen.
The afternoon of the next day, Kei came to pick up Kizuna in his room.
「Shikina-san……thanks for your hard work.」
There was a heavy shadow under her eyes. It was obviously the face of someone pulling an all-nighter.
『Kizuna. You finished preparing?』
「Preparation……even if you called it that, but there is nothing that I particularly have to bring isn’t it?」
『None. It’s fine if you come bringing only your body.』
It was a way of saying that made him a bit creeped out, but Kizuna didn’t think of it deeply and replied.
「Then, I’m ready.」
『You have also drunk the medicine given to you yesterday on time?』
「Yes, I drank it properly since yesterday.」
『You were told that it’s strictly prohibited to masturbate but……you didn’t do it?』
Kei turned her back on Kizuna and started walking.
Kizuna exited his room and followed behind Kei. When they exited into a wide passage, a small commuter was staying there. It was a simple automatic vehicle to travel inside the ship.
After Kizuna entered into the passenger seat, Kei grasped the handle and activated the commuter. He was a bit worried if she was driving sleepily, but the commuter advanced without trouble.
After a while an excessively gorgeous door appeared and the commuter stopped.
『This is our destination.』
「So this is Grace’s villa?」
『Right. The next mission will be carried out here.』
Kei and Kizuna got down from the commuter and walked towards the door. Guards were standing at both sides of the door. When they saw Kei, they put their hands on their ear and said something. It seemed they were communicating with inside.
There was a metallic sound *click* sounding several times and the door was slowly opening.
Kei calmly entered inside, so Kizuna also followed behind her.
There was another door inside. Kei moved aside as though deferring the path to him.
Kizuna felt dubious, even so he obediently followed her words.
He grasped the handle and pushed open the door.
He was taken aback by the sight suddenly spreading out before his eyes.
Naked bodies were dazzlingly standing before him.
Furthermore, it wasn’t just one or two.
The number was roughly twenty from a quick glance.
The naked girls were beautifully forming a single horizontal line.
The girls lining up were familiar to him, the girls who had Heart Hybrid Cores residing inside their bodies.
But their attire wasn’t their usual ones.
Everyone put on a matching costume.
It was the outfit that drew out the beauty of the flesh to the maximum.
So to speak, all nude.
There wasn’t a single thing on their body that had the purpose to hide the body.
What they were wearing were a golden necklaces and bracelets, waistlets, and so on. Only accessories that in the end were for the sake of enhancing beauty.
If there was one thing that could possibly be included in the category of clothes, it would be the high-laced high-heeled shoes on their feet.
The naked bodies that would make him hold his breath if even just one was in front of him.
More than twenty girls in that kind of appearance were lining up there.
It was truly a spectacle.
And then, it was just too unrealistic.
Kizuna’s mouth stayed opened without being able to say anything.
He was merely, merely had his sight stolen by the beautiful bodies of the girls.
Everyone was staring at Kizuna, so his gaze naturally met theirs when he was staring at them one by one.
Aine who was looking slightly embarrassed. Himekawa who was trembling with a bright red face. Yurishia who was sticking out her chest with an expression overflowing with self-confidence. Even the small Sylvia and Ragrus were in the line up with similar appearances.
Furthermore Masters, and even Grace, Zelcyone, and the Quartum from Vatlantis’s forces were standing in the line with inflammatory outfits.
Hyakurath who was desperately fighting against her shame, and Mercuria supporting her from the side. The smiling wryly Gravel and Aldea.
There was no sense of reality at all from the sight before his eyes.
Kizuna doubted his own eyes many times.
「E……everyone, why are, you lining up……naked……」
「So you’ve come, Kizuna.」
He could hear Reiri’s voice. Relieved feeling was spreading inside Kizuna’s heart.
「Thank god, Nee-chan. This is──」
Reiri who was dressed the same as the other girls came from the inner door. Those large breasts that were really unlikely for Japanese genes were bouncing each time she was taking a step.
Behind her, Nayuta and Landred who were in the same appearance as expected also arrived after Reiri.
Nayuta was already an organism outside of humanity……but even though he understood that, that visual was too brutal. It was fine to call it a crime.
And then Landred’s explosive breasts were rampaging like different organisms altogether. That hugeness caused even the eyes of the lining up girls to chase after it with shocked expressions.
Reiri walked until she was in front of Kizuna before stopping.
「Are you surprised?」
「Surprised……rather! Ju, just what is this!? Just what in the world is everyone doing!? I didn’t hear about something like this at all!」
After coming back to his senses from the initial surprise, he suddenly fell into panic next. Kizuna was having cold sweat while rattling on.
Nayuta who appeared from behind Reiri hid half her face with a fan and bent her body.
「I understand that you are excited with your mother’s sexy body, but calm down a little Kizuna.」
「There is no way I’m excited by something like that! But, Kaa-san……you can walk already?」
Nayuta abruptly narrowed her eyes.
「Actually I still need to rest, but there is no way I can be absent from this mission.」
「Mission you say……」
With a ‘hah’ Kizuna suddenly recalled and spoke.
「Don’t tell me……you mean Thanatos’s conquer strategy!?」
Reiri crossed her arms. Her large breasts were pressed to each other, emphasizing their existence further.
「There are two days and two nights in the ship’s time until we arrive at Thanatos’s world. During that time, you are going to do Heart Hybrid with everyone here a lot!!」
Kizuna lost his words once more.
「My my, how about calming down? Hida-kun.」
Landred gently talked to calm Kizuna down.
「See, there was something like this before, right? The ceremony in order to restore Vatlantis’s Genesis……do you remember?」
‘Come to think of it’ ──Kizuna recalled about that time.
They once carried out a ceremony with a great number of people in order to restore Genesis. At that time, the female students of Ataraxia were completely disarrayed due to the aphrodisiac aroma effect inside the tent.
「That’s why, it’s okay, you don’t need to be that worried. Hida-kun will be all right if you do it like usual, so be confident okay♡」
However, at that time, he was only doing Connective Hybrid with the sister pair of Aine and Grace in another room. What they were going to start right now smelled far more dangerous than that time.
「Bu, but two days? Continuously?」
Reiri shook her head.
「Don’t be stupid. No way we can make you do something that absurd.」
Kizuna let out a sigh of relieve.
「Ain’t that right……」
「You’ll get time for eating and sleeping at least.」
「That’s the only exception!?」
「What? You aren’t satisfied?」
Reiri poked at Kizuna’s chest straightforwardly.
Kizuna’s cheeks reddened and he averted his gaze.
Then, this time breasts lining up in a row entered his eyes.
Breasts of twenty two people. A total of forty four individual breasts were forming a line.
Shape, size, and also skin color, they were all varied. The variation was truly rich. Even the size of the colored circle, also the shape of the pointing out part at the center, everything was different for each person. And then, they were jiggling invitingly each time someone stirred.
Kizuna continued to stare at the row of the lining up girls as though his heart was stolen by them.
「……I’ll say this before hand, Kizuna. We aren’t fooling around here.」
The cold voice of his big sister caused Kizuna’s gaze to turn back towards Reiri as though he had just been slapped.
「Err……in other words, we are going to accumulate power ups and magic power single-mindedly in these two days, and then use those to clash with Thanatos?」
「That’s not all. This is something that amplifies the concept of Connective Hybrid. It’s Connective Hybrid with the twenty two people lining up here plus us three, a total of twenty five people! This is exactly the last trump card of mankind that breaks through the limit of common sense──」
Reiri’s eyes gleamed fiercely.
「The 『Polygamy RemodellingHarem Hybrid』!!」
Kizuna gulped audibly.
Kei’s window materialized in front of Kizuna’s eyes as though to answer his question.
Her existence was almost forgotten because of the tremendous shock, but Kei was standing behind Kizuna.
『Anyone other than the related people are forbidden to enter this villa and the surrounding area. This space is completely isolated. In these two days, this area will be filled with magic power by making this area a completely independent space. With the thickening of magic power’s density, even more effective power up can be expected. Also, the effects of Love Room will also be magnified due to this area’s structure.』
「Love Room……I see, this room is──」
Kizuna stared once more at the interior of the extravagant room and the half naked girls.
『No. A wide area Love Room is installed, but the building and clothes in this area are real. This is a paradoxical experiment where reality will invade within possible scope into the Love Room that was used to do what is impossible in reality. This Love Room’s function is to enhance reality and elevate sexual feelings. It’s used to supplement the part that is impossible in reality. So to speak it’s a hybrid of imaginary and reality. A Love Room that expands reality.』
「I, is that so.」
Kizuna’s understanding couldn’t catch up with the explanation that Kei talked passionately, but he nodded for the time being.
『With the cooperation of Queen Landred, the sorcery technology of Baldein is also applied. Things like aphrodisiac scent and nectar, things that are used in sorcery are also worked in together with the Love Room’s remodeling.』
──’I see…….in short, she means that all the technology and techniques until now are all put into this.’
Kizuna gradually recovered his calm.
And then, he also became able to believe that this wasn’t a strategy that was thought of simply, but the best method that they could possibly think of currently.
「But……speaking realistically, is something like a Harem Hybrid possible? Partnering with twenty five people is just……」
Reiri shrugged and answered.
「As expected it’s impossible for everyone simultaneously. But, we have these two days for that. During that time you will do Connective Hybrid with as many people as possible and with every kind of combination successfully!」
Kizuna pondered with a serious look.
「But, mutual trust is necessary in Connective Hybrid. Even combinations have a limit.」
「Luckily or unluckily, the experience in Ataraxia Academy became a plus for that. After all, compared to before, the intimacy between each faction has become incomparably high.」
When Reiri said that, Nayuta puffed out her flat chest with a triumphant look.
「Isn’t that right, isn’t that right♪ Your mother was aiming for that result right from the start you know? After all the teamwork of you all is necessary to take on the Deus ex Machina.」
However Reiri responded with a chilly gaze. She obviously didn’t believe it.
「Setting that aside. Better coordination than before might become necessary in the fight against Thanatos. For that too, it will be advantageous to heighten trust between each other.」
──’The mutual trust between twenty people huh.’
Kizuna confirmed the participants once more.
Amaterasu Chidorigafuchi Aine
Four people in total.
