As soon as he returned to the ground, he was sometimes tired and took a break.

I took a bath, ate and took a nap, and if I noticed, I seemed to fall asleep until evening.

"... sounds like you were pretty tired"

Grow and stretch.

What I was resting in was the guest room at Demon King's Castle that I have ready for you.

Lucha was there because she had a room next door, too, but maybe she's still asleep.

As I dressed up and went out into the hallway, just at the same time Lucha came out of the room.

"Are you awake?

"Yeah. It was pretty tough, so I guess I was more tired than I thought."

I snort in complete agreement with Lusha, who tells her with a bitter smile.

"I'm going to go talk to Mr. Cruz, okay?

"Of course I'm coming with you. But where are you?

"Speaking of which, yeah...... why don't we just go to the courtyard?"

It's called a house in the mountains, and Mr. Cruz has the image that he seems to like plants. So I thought I might be in a courtyard with lots of plants.

Even if you weren't there, you could ask the Demon King.

"Oh, there he is."


When I went to the courtyard, there was someone I was searching for.

"Oh, Lusha on Hiroki. What's the matter, man?

"I wanted to ask Mr. Cruz about the magic team."

"That's what you said at Dewey's grave, fine."

You promised me well.

"I'd say..."


If you think you can listen, there's a disturbing air flowing at once.

"I don't know that much either. I'm not a magician."


Though I thought he would have a lot of knowledge because he's a Pinot master and an amazing alchemist... he doesn't seem to be that good.

When I drop my disappointed shoulder, "I'm sorry," he apologizes.

"No, because it's not Mr. Cruz's fault. I just assumed I knew it on my own."

"But I feel like I've done something wrong... In the meantime, I can explain a little bit."

"Is that true? I want to ask you!

Mr. Cruz nodded with a smile and told me just a little bit of the story.

"You can say that none of the people who deal with the magic formation are. Especially if it's as thin on edge as a demon clan with a lot of magic."

"Really? I thought you were more familiar with the Demons."

"If you have a lot of magic, you have enough magic skills. One way or another, people with less magic use catalysts to use magic formations."

"Oh, you know..."

Is that why we were summoned in the land of man?

"Originally, it was the people of the Great Tree who made the magic formation. They have less magic, and though they created a magic formation to make it up to them - they've abused it. mourned it, and the magical formations followed the annihilation by their hands that made it"

But I couldn't erase everything.

He said that some people didn't stop doing research, and some people did new research, like in the human country.

"Those who continue to study the magic formations were banished from the people of the great trees. No one knows what happened to them, and maybe there are some knowledgeable offspring out there somewhere. If you want to know about the magic team, you should look for offspring."

However, Mr. Cruz also says he doesn't know if the descendants really exist.

"But, hey, if Hiroki used that magic formation - there must definitely be researchers. Or maybe you're advising, and that means that the descendants or someone sold the finished magic team."

"It's going to be hard to find information that easily."

"Everyone will be trying to hide it."

You know about the magic team? That's what they ask me, and I don't seem to get a response from Jesus first. Rather, Sekiyama is what they say they don't know.

I remember the dagger the previous Demon King gave me, which was in my bag. Indeed, it seems very useful in looking for information on the magic formation.

'Cause if you have information, it's probably the upper echelons of the country or something like that.

With this dagger, it would be easier to connect your face with those people.

"... Mr. Cruz said," Administrator Oki, right? What does it have to do with the people of Oki?

"Good question. But unfortunately, I'm just an elf, not a big tree people."

I asked because I thought maybe, but that didn't seem to happen.

"So what are you, a big tree folk? Human or elf? Demons? Beasts?

At least I want to know just what it looks like.

When I told him that, Mr. Cruz pointed to his ear and briefly said, "It's an elf."

"Racially. But very few elves have become the people of the Great Tree. They were little people made up of dozens of elves."

"I can't believe the elves had such a history..."

"Did Lusha not know?"

The one thing that surprises me most about Mr. Cruz is Rousha.

"If you're a young elf, you don't have to know. Nothing to be ashamed of."

"... Yes"

"I'm an alchemist too, so I don't know about the magic team."

Nothing to worry about, follow-ups come in.

I agree with that.

"It was a long time ago, wasn't it? I don't think it's normal to not know that."

"Yeah, you are. Thank you, Hiroki, Mr. Cruz. I don't think I've used my head in a long time."

Haha laugh, Lusha stretches all the way.

And he took a few deep breaths, and he looked at me. That's already an extraordinarily cute Lucha smile.

"Hey, because of this, let's go hunt and learn some new skills!

Of course you can't say no to me.
