“Aaaargh! How persistent!” (Sharluel)
The Power of God Angel Sharluel finally threw a tantrum after what seemed like an eternity of regeneration.
With her authority [Shimmer] allowing her to assimilate with the divinity in the atmosphere, she instantly regenerates herself, whether she’s vaporized or burned to ashes.
But if she repeatedly gets scattered like smoke as soon as she regenerates, she can’t do a single thing…
In the past, enemies could only despair in the face of their own immortality, so this is an unexpected situation for her.
“Don’t you understand the futility of your efforts? I am immortal! No high-ranking demon can kill me…!” (Sharluel)
No questions asked.
Kyuu-chan’s kick made her explode again, and Sharluel’s body was once again scattered.
Sharluel, who turned to smoke, gathers at a remote place again and regains her original shape.
“This, this musclehead bat…! You’re seriously going to repeat this until night!? Even if you do that, my [Shimmer] is–!” (Sharluel)
At that point, Sharluel frowns at the setting sun.
(――Huh, the sun is already setting!) (Sharluel)
(Really frustrating, dingy demons–!) (Sharluel)
Her anger reached its peak there, and she saw the silhouette of a young boy, but she felt that something was amiss.
The tremendous sense of something wrong cooled her anger down in an instant.
“…Grrr? No, that’s definitely not possible… What’s this!?” (Sharluel)
Sharluel immediately turns around.
The blazing sun was setting in the mountains.
The flowering trees are dyed in crimson, and darkness is falling here and there.
Sharluel was resurrected when the sun rose.
It had been less than an hour since the battle with the demons had begun.
So there was no way it could be dusk—
“What the hell—something is happening !? What the…!” (Sharluel)
The first thing Sharluel thought of was a parade that still continued at the feet of the giant.
(—I can only think of them as the reason!) (Sharluel)
She doesn’t know how it is happening, but she realized they are causing this situation.
Even at night, her authority will activate without any problem, but she just feels something is amiss!
At that time, someone in the parade raised her voice.
“Nyanyaa! Our great wish is about to be fulfilled-nyaa! This is the crucial moment. It’s ‘Oumagatoki’, soon ‘that’ will be completed!!!” (Nekomata)
(Oumagatoki? What will be completed?) (Sharluel) [T/N: Oumagatoki “逢魔時” & “大禍時” is an idiom for twilight or the moment when it becomes dark or in the literal sense “A reunion with spirits/demons/monsters” and if you use the latter version “A time of great calamity”. Kanjis are really cool when they do this.]
Sharluel cannot understand the true meaning of her words.
But that was enough.
“Dirty demons! You’re still trying to do something!? Anchor!” (Sharluel)
With a shout of rage, Sharluel converged the divinity into her fingertips, and at the same time, the Anchor swung its giant arm.
The giant’s arm isn’t aimed at the parade, but at Kyuu-chan, who is about to jump towards Sharluel.
Kyuu-chan evades the surprise attack.
She barely evaded the attack, but the laser emitted from Sharluel’s fingertips pierces through the gap and stretches straight toward the parade.
Alraune and his friends scream, but it’s too late.
The Divine Laser blows the shakuhachi and was about to head to Sakura’s head.
“Sakura, it’s dangerous!” (Momiji)
Momiji protects her and receives the laser on her shoulder.
Due to the impact of the laser, Momiji was caught along with Sakura and was blown away, both of them leaving the formation.
“I don’t know what you’re planning, but I won’t let you finish!” (Sharluel)
Sharluel shoots lasers in rapid succession.
Neither the injured Momiji nor Sakura can evade.
“This is bad! Let’s go!”
“Yes! Ponpokorin!” (Senri)
Narugoa and Senri jump out of the parade and are ready to intercept the attack.
Narugoa’s Senju protects them from the lasers’ attack, and Senri’s magic shoots the lasers down.
The defense was successful, but two more were taken out of the parade.
“Oh, that’s… if four people are missing…!” (Sakura)
“This is bad!? We won’t be able to complete it!” (Senri)
Sharluel laughs while looking down at them.
“Fufufufufufufufu! From your reaction, it seems that your plan will not succeed if there are not enough people! Now I know that I will do my best to disturb you!” (Sharluel)
Narugoa looks up at Sharluel and clenches his teeth in regret.
Above all, their expression revealed how their plan will fail.
This time Sharluel is convinced of her victory and looks up to the heavens.
“It is settled! Look! The relics of the previous era are gone! Now kneel in front of the Power of God Sharluel!” (Sharluel)
Sharluel’s declaration of her victory roars around the place.
When everyone and Narugoa were about to be trapped in despair—
“—Sushi is delicious!” (Voice)
A happy voice, that’s totally out of place, released the tension from the air.
Sharluel also released a dumbfound murmur and slowly looked down in the direction of the voice.
She was not the only one, everyone was looking in the direction of the voice and was showing a dumbfounded face.
There are five voices.
It is the trio with Agata and Ungata. The two Komainu from the Komainu Duo, and the Trio of Fairy Friends.
They were walking toward us with the setting sun at their backs, happily and deliciously munching on their sushi.
“Raw fish Sushi! How delicious! Mackerel! Tuna!” (Fairy 1)
“This eel is also good with the sweet sauce!” (Fairy 2)
“Wahaha! Thee knoweth, this ‘Cured Ham Sushi’ can quite good! Salty salted plums art eke (also) good!” (A)
“The ‘Rainbow Fruit Sushi’ is eke delicious! It looks most wonderous and looks liketh a good luck charm! It may be perfect for celebrations!” (Um)
“The changing sushi is eke parteth of sushi culture!” (A & Um)
“Anything is fine as long as it is delicious!” (Lulu)
“Lulu, I love you and sushi!” (Fairy 1)
An odd group of people walked toward us, laughing happily.
While everyone was stopped in their tracks, Agata and Ungata suddenly noticed the parade.
“Oh, what’s going on? Everyone hast gathered?” (A)
“A parade? For a festival or celebration?” (Um)
“A celebration for sushi!” (Fairy Trio)
“Exactly!” (A & Um)
As they said this, they rushed to the parade with the Fairy Trio on their backs.
–Sharluel finally comes to her senses.
“… Ah!? This is so stupid that it’s just so… Kuuu!” (Sharluel)
Sharluel raises her finger to snipe at the Komainus from the sky.
However, we were ready.
It was almost at the same time that Kyuu-chan, who had moved around, kicked the upper half of Sharluel’s body from behind and the Komainus joined the parade.
—At that moment, the setting sun had completely set, and darkness enveloped the area.
The air had clearly changed.
“Th-This is…!?” (Sharluel)
While regenerating her body, Sharluel felt the rapid loss of divinity from the atmosphere.
Divinity is supplied by sunlight.
Therefore, it makes sense that the divinity of the atmosphere decreases when the sun goes down, but this is not at this level.
By the time all the divinity disappears from the atmosphere and Sharluel’s regeneration is over, it will be completely zero… And it has already happened.
“Well, that’s impossible…!? There no way for divinity to disappear completely…!” (Sharluel)
“—’Hyakki Yagyou’ has been completed.” [T/N: To anyone who knows Nurarihyon no Mago you know how cool and what it is. Well it’s literally “A Night Parade of a Hundred demons/yokais/oni/etc.” it is an idiom for a pandemonium.]
Narugoa said this to Sharluel, whose Immortality has been sealed.
“It’s an ancient tradition in Yapani if a group of people who are walking at night encounters it. They are said to be dragged into the Netherworld… In addition, today is Obon a time where the souls return from the Netherworld. It’s a day of honoring the souls by dancing.”
Narugoa laughs proudly and glares at Sharluel.
“Inanaki Sacred Mountain’s (employees) monsters are around 60 people, but with my friends and the harpies, together. The Hyakki Yagyou is complete.”
“What are you trying to say? What do you mean, the Hyakki Yagyou is complete and then what!?” (Sharluel)
“You are really slow.”
With this as a signal, the monsters that had formed the parade all took up their weapons all at once.
And then Narugoa deployed his [Thousand Hands] and announced loud and with conviction.
“I have opened the lid of the cauldron of hell, and have now locally transformed this place into the underworld…. I’ll never let you see the light of day again Power of God Sharluel.”
