Story 10 A Small Nations Alliance Syndrome (<- this title took me hours and the help of others. Dunno if that's even proper english or if its right)
I've had enough!
What we need right now is
The unity of the midlands!
The grand round table
Two weeks after the battle of Mahiro and the third imperial princess
And one month since the proclamation of war of the empire
King of Zemn Kingdom ZEMN
Zepilm Rebublic MARSHALL
The first prince of the religius nation Hiland RIEZEL
Templars (Or Temple organization)
All of you are only interested in your own nations
When we have such a huge enemy in front of us all!
The compensation for stopping the empire's attempt to get a hold of seimahai
Was the beginning of war
And of course the main character sits around the same table, however...
He was busy
Daily conferences without any progress are tough to the elder
Let's stop this farce and get to the business, Mismarca
What is you point, king of Zemn?
Exactly what I said! We have assembled here because we heard seimahai was in danger
So why is it that we can't even have one look at the object at hand (the object we've been talking about. Dunno what's the best way to say it)
And I have already told you that no matter how long we wait, if we haven't collected all of the crests, it won't show us its tru form
If you're fine with an empty vessel, you can as well look at the glass in fron of you
King of Zemn, are you saying you're still uneasy, even though half of this continent have assembled?
Hell yeah I am
Have you forgotten how fierce the first invasion of the empire was?!
How can we be sure the seimahai will side with us when the sleeping lion will awake?
That's the proof I want
As I'm saying!
This isn't the time to just sit here and do nothing!!
Just what is wrong with the justice we're about to perform?!
Protecting freedom and peace from that evil empire who sees humans as slaves and broadens its territory only for fun
Tell me what's wrong with that!!
As expected of the youngest SS-rank hero from the religious nation, Hiland
We have heard you wonderful opinion
However, no matter how much we pray, your god won't destroy the demon lord or the empire for us
If my memory serves me right, it was tomorrow, no? The day the heroes for the gathering of those crests are chosen.
Kid from Hiland, how about adding yourself to the forerunners tomorrow
You will only bore yourself if you keep company to tea-loving gramps
Heh heh (2nd panel sfx)
Are you saying I do not belong here...?
I wonder... (second last, little panel)
I shall excuse myself...
All over already?
Aren't you a little too persistent lately?
Yaaa~wn (under the bubble)
So you were awake after all. Why won't you participate in congress?
Even if I opened my mouth, it's not like anyone'd listen. I'm even younger than Prince Riezel
You're right. For someone as pure as Riezel, this congress is a little too cruel
"The golden lion", "Edge the cross sword" (Lit. The lion of light and the cross blade. But I think golden feels better and later the mangaka himself have written in engrish that it's edge the cross sword)
Riezel Faris Ackraren
A genius you may see in few hundreds or even more years
I can't even think of how large cohesive power his charisma will bring to the anti-empirites
And that's how it ended after all
What do you think of me, dear father?
I'm still at age where I want to fool around but this last month I've been like a bird in your cage...
As long as you act like that
I doubt there's anyone who'd lend their ears to listen your words
Ahaha (sfx under Mahiro)
However, I think it's fine for you to think. You read lot of books, yes?
Even if you fake your sleep, you still listen the future of this continent
That's what makes me happy
Tomorrow, I leave the selection of heroes to you
Seriously...? Why the sudden decision, my daddy?!
A- Are you saying it's O.K. to choose o- only the most beautiful female heroes?!
You will choose yourself who you'll let protect your life
A trip with glamorous female heroes...
You are bleeding
Haah (sfx over the bubble, next to the girl)
While we're on our journey
The relation of a guard will change into love...
Sleep next... to you?
OK! I can smell some concubine H-scenes, so
You are in way
Edelweiss... Since when?
I was on my way to clean the assembly hall
So, Mahiro. I'll leave the choosing to you
Yes sir, father
You gonna drink both of'em?
Doesn't look like the war has started. It's really peaceful here
O merciful little lambs! Thou shan't waste your insufficent peaceful lives (Hahaha, I have no idea how old english goes. I leave this to proofers)
Thank God! Gahaha
Ahyaaa! (last panel sfx)
Are you damn idiot. Haven't you heard of "Thou, don't drink alcohol"?
Completely wrong! It's "When thou drink, don't let it get thou" (This is hard, bwahahaha)
Those who won't thank God will go to hell from drunken driving!
I met this young 18 years old hero only few days ago
Since then all I've seen is the same frown smug
I bet he can't get over his past
So, my dear hero. Any contrivances for tomorrow?
What do you mean?
Listen here, To win the favour of Mismarca and get a hold of seimahai
Over A-rank heroes have been gathering here for two months already
So my dear hero, you shouldn't wear that tasteless cape even if it's only mealtime
This calms me down
You're right! It's Shiina Milrosa
The crimson sword Shiina!!
There you hear it. Finally an S-rank hero has appeared. That already tells you tomorrow will be the great day to all heroes
Where have I seen her...
And here I was wondering I saw a familiar face... So it was Jess. You weren't dead yet?
Don't tell me you're after the seimahai as well
That's what I had in mind
If you plan to be a comedian, your clothes are already enough! What do you think you can do with that body of yours?
I need something like seimahai
So I can travel to the western regions and kill the Demon king
Are you still speaking that nonsense...?!
The only E-rank hero from the same period is still you!
I've finally come this far. I'm not gonna stop now
I don't care!
However, better not to misunderstand. The reason Mismarca is collecting heroes
Is to face off the empire
Not the Demon King!
At least this is not a place the likes of you should be in
If it's west you want, your compass is broken
You shouldn't get it into you, dear hero
I'm me. That's all
Hey'ey! Where are you going?
Hit the sack
Bam (sfx bubble)
I shall earnestly pray you the greatest of luck, my dear hero
This young man who couldn't properly even talk with others
Dressing like a burglar, having a hair which is pale white as if seen something horrible
Had no right eye
And had lost even his right hand
Oh! He's here! Prii~nce!
Hey there, Pariel. Do you also have a lunch break?
Yes! I just finished my duties of today
Since it's the time for the salute of guards of honor I wear my ceremonial uniform
How does it look?
Yeah, I think "Clothes make the woman" is quite the real impression
You don't mind if I sit next to you, right?
Y- Yes ma'am...
I heard about the heroes!
Prince Riezel will be choosed of course, right?
Are you interested? As another swordsman?
I wonder how they'll be choosed... I bet it will be a tournamet-like event...
If so, then I'm super looking forward to it!
EDGE THE CROSS SWORD (big text)
Haaah (sfx right to Pariel)
Since when, Edelweiss-sama?
Pariel, it's one of fragments which decidees the future of this continent
I won't allow words of indiscretion
I'm sowwy... (over Pariel)
Your highness, would it be alright to accompany you?
Oh, I can smell some interesting small-talk
Would it be alright for me to accompany you as well?
Thank you for you hard work, Kaien-sama
Good work, prime minister
Nothing like that. All I do is sit on my desk and hold pen
No need to be so humble. All I do is sleep!
Don't be so proud!
However, it's been really long since the four of us had a meal like this
It's not so bad, once in a while
Prince, I just heard from his majesty that you will decide how we'll choose heroes tomorrow
Prince will?! Is it true?!
But it's really troublesome
You may be right
You shouldn't be to hasty to decide...
What do you mean?
Things aren't as easy as it looks
Foremost, the reason why the heroes came to picture in the first place...
Every country doen't want to give Seimahai
Or the trigger, meaning crests, to other countries, right?
However, if you bring your army, that itself will start anew war
There comes the freelancers
And that needs to be personnel who won't take the seimahai back to their own countries
But even heroes are human... If it's to get hold of honor and fame...
I have to doubt if they truly are completely neutral
Then even more so, you really have to choose Prince Riezel!
He's disinterested in affairs like that!
Is that really so? To me, it seems Prince Riezel is one of the most suspicious ones
Aren't you forgetting something important?
Yup, heroes are by all means
Belonging to completely politically neutral Templars (Or Temple organization)
Prince Riezel's fatherland, Hiland as a religious nation is regrettably too clean
If Prince Riezel was recommendated
They must think it's be easier to side with him than heroes of other countries
Usually the Empire is only second priority
Blaming eachothers on the rationing of eachothers defense lines
And if everything goes well, they might even get a hold of seimahai
That's too much...
One month ago prince risked his life to negotiate through the desperate situation
Now's the time to unity, even so...
Don't get so disappointed. That's what politics mean
Right, at moment there's only one point which could make the current problems bigger
Ironically, the empire wasn't as mighty
As we first thought it was
If we for example take the current soldiers in bufferzone
Alliance's army is bigger
"What the heck-? Empire's actually weak. Now if we had the seimahai"
Is what people'll think
I bet even the empire army knows the alliance has a bigger army
The came appeared the great battalion leaded by the imperial household itself
The existence of Lady Lunas
Which was only thought as a rumour happened to be the truth
You highness, what are you going to do about tomorrow?
She's right, prince! Wha- wha- what are you going to do?!
It'll be okay. This time it's the heroes' time to do the impossible. Not mine
N- No way!!
Few days after that
A report, which says that a new generalhad appeared to the imperial military encampment, was delivered
The second princess of the empire
Yurika Mikajima Majestia
Prince Mahiro, a bad boy who beat my little sister...
Having another name of
The pope of darkness (Or Dark pope?)
He needs to be punished
