PLOT SURMARY 


Rimuru saved the children Shizu Jefe behind, and then 
put Engrassia behind him. But on the way home, he was 
atkacked by the captain of the Western Holy Church's 
Crusaders, Hinata Sakaguchi. He escaped danger by using 
a body double as a decoy, but it delayed his return to 
Tempest. During that time, the city was attacked by Shogo 
Taguchi, Kirara Mizutani, and Kyoya Tachibana—Flippant 
but capable otherworlders.4F

CLEARLY 
DECIDED

FALMUTH

IT. 













SPIRITUAL BODY 


The memory-recording

I Do 

NOT KNOW

Veldora's Slime Observation Journal 


~HOPE~ 


@ DESPAIR AND HOPE 


When Rimuru returned, he found Gabiru and Vesta. There 
is a grim mood here. The ominous premonition has come to 
pass, it would seem. 


Hearing the situation has proven this true. Tempest has been 
covered by a barrier enacted by unknown agents. 


And that was not the only bad news. 


Milim issued a declaration of war against Demon Lord Car- 
rion, and refugees from the Animal Kingdom of Eurazania 
are bearing down as well. Apparently, their arrival will not 
happen for a while, but there's something more important to 
deal with now. 


"This is a difficult situation, isn't it, Master...?" 


"When it rains, it pours, as they say. It seems likely that this 
is no mere coincidence, but a part of someone's plan." 


"lL agree, Master. Especially about Milim. She is too cautious 
to take such rash actions for no reason. We should presume 
that whoever is pulling the strings behind this possesses 
tremendous power." 


Yes. I suppose so. 

It is difficult to make a judgment about Milim. She is so 
capricious, and it is impossible to predict what she will think 
about any one thing. But because I am certain she would 
never do another's bidding, I assume that there is a reason 
behind her actions. 


At any rate, if it were to come to hostilities with Milim, 
Rimuru's chances of winning are zero. We need to keep a 
close eye so that it does not come to that. Now, let us focus 
on the next step. 


After ordering Soei to investigate the situation, Rimuru 
entered the city. 


"I have a bad feeling about this." 

"Yes, me, too." 

It was different from usual. In fact, it was almost a different 
place entirely. The usual liveliness was gone, and a deathly 
hush hung over the city. 

The reason became clear at once. Surprisingly, Rimuru's 
hand-appointed regent, Benimaru, was in the middle of a 
fight. His opponent was Grucius the lycanthrope. Whatever 
his reason for fighting, Benimaru was merciless and nearly 


out of control. 


What could have happened to put the monsters in such an 
extreme mental state...? 


"Stop, Benimaru!!" 
With Rimuru's arrival, it seemed that the situation would at 


last be brought under control. But that hope was soon proven 
to be naive. Benimaru guided him to a sight that was utterly 


grisly. 


A great pile of fallen monsters. Adults and children, all 
indiscriminately slaughtered. 


I was stunned. 


For some reason, there was a feeling in my breast, something 
hot and surging. I wanted to shout, to rage, to fight... 


"What a strange feeling. What is this emotion I feel?" 
"Master Veldora..." 


"Ll admire Rimuru. Even in this situation, he is calm, working 
to get things under control. If it were me..." 


Would I seek vengeance? Me...? 


From ancient times to the present, I have never spared a 
thought for anyone but myself. Would I truly act for the sake 
of others? Even without anyone wishing that I would do so? 


What a strange thing. Even I cannot help but wonder what 
has gotten into me. Would Rimuru have the answer to that 
question? 


And what is Rimuru thinking now, for that matter? I would 
very much like to know. 


Rigurd explained the situation. A country by the name of 
Falmuth was responsible for the attack, and their reason was 
to compete for trading profits. They are trying to seize this 
place that Rimuru and his companions built from nothing, all 
for their own greed —is what this all amounts to. 


"What a pain these humans are." 


"Indeed, Master. Monsters are much simpler. If we see some- 
thing we want, we take it by force. We live by the survival of 
the fittest, but unlike them, we do not need special ideals to 
justify our actions." 


"But Rimuru seeks coexistence with these humans." 
W W 


"So is he following the humans' rules, and unable to act upon 
his emotions...?" 


If he doesn't like it, he should strike them back. That is what I 
would do, but Rimuru seems to be very calm about it. 


His surface consciousness is placid at the moment, and he 

is hiding what lies beneath it. But it would seem to me that 
whatever is beneath the surface, it threatens to burst out into 
the open. I can only hope that he holds strong. Please let his 
heart not suffer any more than it already has. 


However—the world is very cruel and uncaring. 


"Where is she?" Rimuru asked. 


Yes, I do not see the secretary, Shion. She is always hanging 
around Rimuru. 


My sense of foreboding increased. There was still misfortune 
ahead. 


There was Shion, lying on the ground, as though asleep. 

But she was dead. 

To think that beloved Shion—the type who could get away 
with anything —could have been killed so easily seems like a 
lies. 

"I cannot believe it." 

"No." 

I only interacted with her through Rimuru's eyes, but even 
still, I felt a fondness for Shion. I even respected her in a 
way—she is someone with lessons to teach others. 

And now Shion is dead, just like that... 

Zwoosh! 

At that moment, the shackles around Rimuru's heart seemed 
to break loose. I'd thought he was standing there emotion- 
less, listening to the explanation. But I was wrong. 

Of course I was wrong. 

Even I am upset by this development. So it stands to rea- 
son that Rimuru, who actually interacted with her directly, 
would feel more strongly about it. 

Rimuru asked to be left alone, and so all the rest quickly left 
the scene. He sat down right there on the ground. What is he 


thinking now? 


It is time for me to think as well—about something I have 
never had cause to consider very deeply before: death. 


"What is death anyway, Ifrit?" 


Ifrit said nothing. Despite his increase in wisdom as of late, 
he had no answer for the question. 


What is death? 


If one's body is moving, one is alive; that much is clear. Even 
if the flesh is not destroyed, if the individual loses their par- 
ticular nature, one might say they are no longer alive. 


If the "soul" is lost—what you might call the true quality 
of life—that is equivalent to death. Under this interpreta- 
tion, Shion and all the other monsters lying around her are 
undoubtedly dead. 


But I do not think that is sad. I have seen death countless 
times. 


"I cannot stand to see Rimuru saddened...but I do not feel 
sad for the death of monsters. Their souls will simply be 
returned to the cycle of rebirth, where they may refine them- 
selves and strive again for greater heights. That is the natural 
way of things, is it not?" 


"Yes, Master. I believe you are right..." 


"Then why can he not simply compartmentalize the matter 
that way?" 


Why doesn't Rimuru cease his mourning...? 

Dragons are immortal beings. We do not die. If our bodies 
are destroyed, we always come back to life. It does not work 
that way for Shion and her kind, but eventually, their souls 
will be reconstructed to gain new life. 


Of course, they will not come back as the same beings, and 
their memories or even wills may not exist in the same 
form...but that, too, is the natural way of things. 


"Aren't you sad, Master Veldora? Knowing that Shion, that 
bright and carefree individual with so much to teach, will 
never be heard from again?" 


"Yes, that is true, but..." 
Ifrit's observation took me aback. 


"The depth of sadness felt corresponds to the depth of the 
connection, let us say. That is a fact of life that I believe I 
finally understand," Ifrit said gravely. 


I believe that I understand what [frit is saying, too. I can tell 
from Rimuru's reaction. Though it may not be polite to say, it 
seems as though losing Shion is causing him more grief than 
the rest of the great crowd of dead monsters. As Ifrit says, the 
depth of the connection between individuals makes a differ- 
ence in the sense of loss. 


And I am no different. I was trying to explain Shion's death 
through the laws of nature and the universe, because doing 
so helped to distract me from the sadness. 


"L once killed a girl named Pirino who was Shizue Izawa's 
friend. I only had the tiniest sliver of self-awareness then, 
and I acted only in reaction to hostility, but even still, it was a 
sin that I committed. And that very event was the reason that 
Shizu and I could not truly commune our hearts..." 


PRA Gaae 


"Ha ha ha, it is too late to bring this up now. And because I 
thought of death as only part of the natural way of things, 
and nothing more, I failed to be aware of Shizu's sadness. 
Shizu thought my sin was her own, and her attempts to atone 
anguished her, but I didn't know... If [hadn't been observing 
Lord Rimuru with you, Master, I might not have understood 
this, even if centuries went by." 


= ee 


Ifrit's words were heavy. They seemed to be telling me that 
death was not something to be considered lightly. Not at all. 


Not that I needed to be told... 


"I suppose. By watching what Rimuru does, I have come to 
understand just how much he treasures the connections he 
has to others. Even the way that he interacted with me seems 
very much in character with the person I know. I was going 
to come back to life anyway, but Rimuru swore to save me. 
He must have considered that my sense of self vanishing 
was equivalent to death. My memories will be preserved up 
to a point, and even my soul will remain virtually the same. 
Most would consider me to be the very same individual, but 
to Rimuru, I would not be. And given that this is Rimuru's 
nature..." 


"Then he cannot give up on Shion and the other victims of 
the attack..." 


Soon it was midday, and then night. Morning came again, 
and the sun spun about. 


Three days passed. Shion did not wake. 


Rimuru seems to be on the verge of giving up. I know of no 

magic with the effect of perfect resurrection of the dead. The 
ritual to reincarnate souls must be performed ahead of time. 
God's miracle of resurrection must happen before a soul can 
disperse. Because the chances of success decrease over time, 
it will fail if not performed within a few minutes of death. 


In other words, there is nothing to be done. Like Rimuru, I 
tasted the bitter flavor of futility. 


Then it happened, right as Rimuru was about to erase the 
dead bodies forever. 


"Rimuru!" cried a voice. 


It was Eren. She came in a terrible rush, and her usual smile 
was nowhere to be seen. 


"...Um, Rimuru, I know the chances are low," she continued. 
"In fact, they might as well be nonexistent...but there is a 


" 


Way. 


And that was enough to cause Rimuru to pause. 


I listened intently as well, because she said there was "a fairy 
tale about bringing back the dead." 


It was an impossible task not to have hope. 
"Master Veldora!!" 
"Yes. If there is a way, then I would certainly like to hear it," I 
said, placing my hopes in this possibility...fairy tale or not. 
@ THE CONDITIONS FOR HOPE® 
What Eren described was a story I already knew. 
"Master Veldora, is that dragon princess..." 


"It is Milim. Though I do not know the details, I am aware 
that she destroyed an entire country." 


T hadn't known the reason for it. Apparently, her friend was 
taken from her by force. This is not entirely meaningless to 
me. What if I were to lose Rimuru...? Just the thought of it is 
frightening. 

But that is not what I should be pondering now. It is the 
resurrection of a follower when its master evolves. As Eren 
says, the real issue to be wary of is the presence or absence of 
the soul. 


If the soul is still intact, then resurrection might be a possibil- 
ity. Without it, all of this is mere fantasy... 


"This city is surrounded by a barrier right now, isn't it?" 


Oh...!! 
Yes, of course!! 


“Searching information within barrier limits... Failed. Lacking precision 
required to detect the presence of infons, the building blocks of the soul...” 


You just leave that to me. 


"T will use the full strength of my skill, Inquirer, to aid your 
search." 


"Understood. Searching information within barrier limits again... 
Search successful. Presence of infons confirmed. Probability of 
reformation upon evolving..." 


3.14%, it says. That is enough. 


Rimuru has reached the same conclusion. His face lights up, 
brimming with intent to fight! 


He's made up his mind now. He is ready to do what it takes: 
to sacrifice the lives of over ten thousand humans, and be- 
come a true demon lord. 


"Lord Rimuru is a very kind leader. Couldn't he spare him- 
self the bloodshed and order his followers to do it...?" 


"You have it wrong, Ifrit. In fact, you just said it yourself: 
Shizu bore your sin. Even if there is no sin within an act of 
taking life, there is guilt. That negative act will become nega- 
tive karma. Rimuru knows that he should not involve others 
in his act." 


"I see. So that is the weight of his decision..." 

Rimuru decided that he would resurrect them all, even at the 
cost of so much wrongdoing. I would likely make the same 
choice. 


So be at ease, Rimuru. You are not alone. 


I shall bear that karma with you, I swore to myself. 


@THE WITCH'S PUNISHMENT @ 


With his mind now made up, Rimuru jumped into action 
with a sense of purpose so bold it seemed to be designed to 
make up for the three days he lost. 


An army of twenty thousand bears down upon the city of 
monsters, they say. Now they are preparing to fight back. 


The first step is to reinforce the barrier. Rimuru placed a firm 
and very careful seal, so as not to allow the souls of the dead 
to vanish into thin air. 


This thoroughness is admirable, and in this case, it had 
unexpected benefits. As a side product of the barrier, Rimuru 
discovered the presence of Clayman's trump card. 


Apparently, he was sending and receiving coded information 
in the form of electronic signals. Rimuru tracked the source 
to a majin named Mjurran. 


Without revealing his knowledge, Rimuru began to ques- 
tion Mjurran. In fact, he seems to have other ideas in mind as 
well...but I do not have the slightest ability to focus on such 
things now. 


"Are you all right, Master Veldora?" 
"Iam not. I believe I shall cry. Gwababababaaa!" 


I was in terrible pain. It was a simple backlash from using my 
skills at full power. 


I opened up the use of my Inquirer skill to assist Rimuru, but 
the demands upon me were extreme. Though it was only for 
a short time, the calorie burn was intense enough to com- 
pletely exhaust me. 


I was put to my very limit performing analytical identifica- 
tion, with my consciousness split to maximize processing 
load. Rimuru sifted through the information I gleaned, but I 
was so busy that I had no ability to pay attention to it. 

"I want to eat something sweet..." 


Yes, like the greatest of all foods: sweet, delicious flan... 


"Understood. Here is an expression of gratitude.” 


I said it because I had nothing to lose, and what do you 
know: a collection of ten flans! 


I was very pleased, indeed. 


Apparently Mjurran's life has been saved as well, from what 
I can see now. Things are looking up. 


The dead coming back to life is a common story, eh? That 
seems like just the sort of thing Rimuru would say. 

@ WHETHER MONSTER OR HUMAN @ 
Rimuru deceived Clayman, who had been cunningly pulling 
strings from the shadows, and won the trust of Youm and his 
followers. With that momentum behind him, he now heads 
toward the big meeting. 
As for me, I am being tended to by Ifrit, and eating flan. 
This...is not so bad. 
In fact, this is the life for me, I think. 
"Don't you agree?" 


"W-well...I don't think this is the best time, perhaps..." 


"Kwa ha ha ha! Don't worry. I will set some aside for you, 
too!" 


Tam not the selfish sort, to hog all the treasures to myself. I 
have ten of them, so I could certainly give three or so to Ifrit. 


What do you mean, "not half?" Don't be preposterous! For 
one thing, I am bigger, and more importantly, I'm in my 
growth spurt. I must eat a lot to grow at a healthy rate. 
And for that reason, I requested a nice massage. 


"Yes, yes, as you wish, Master." 


I thought Ifrit's response a tad uncharitable, but the finger 
pressure is undeniable. A spiritual being should not have any 


experience with stiff shoulders or back pain, but for some 
reason, this is very soothing to me. 


I watched the meeting in a state of bliss. 


After Rimuru announced that he would become a demon 
lord, there was a quick flurry of traded opinions. 


"Their reactions are surprisingly varied, aren't they?" 
"Hmm?" 


"I mean, lower monsters like goblins are absolutely subservi- 
ent to more powerful monsters. The words of their superiors 
are everything, and they will never express their own will. 
And yet..." 


"You find it amusing that there is such change in them?" 
"Yes, Master." 
Hmm. [frit does have a point, I admit. 


Evolving does not mean changing one's inherent disposition. 
That was the common knowledge, at least, but the people of 
this city are anything but common. They each have their own 
firm will, which they express without fear or hesitation. 


And who would expect shortsighted creatures like goblins 
to be so prudent and wise? It has not even been years since 
their evolution. How much could they have possibly learned 
in this time? 


I suppose it is an environment that raises a person. That must 
be the ideal for which Rimuru is striving. 


In order to judge a matter from many different angles, one 
must not be taken in by a single opinion, but value the 
thoughts of many different minds. By hearing out many 
ideas, one can search for a better direction. 


Rimuru is not meant to be a tyrant. 


But judging from the forces of the other Demon Lords, I sup- 
pose this is not an impossible idea. And even I am not exactly 
pleased when others defy my statements. 


"In your case, Master Veldora, I'd describe that more as self- 
ishness..." 


"Hmm? Did you say something, Ifrit?" 

"No, nothing at all." 

"I did not think so. Very good! Now move down to my legs." 
"Very well..." 


I returned my attention to the flow of the meeting, allowing 
Ifrit's fingertips to do their work. 


@ MOMENT OF COUNTERATTACK @ 


Rimuru's followers have come to understand how much they 
have relied upon him. And they realize that it was not his 
strength that they admire, but his character. They are so very 
unlike monsters, and yet they are oddly likeable for that. I 
happen to agree with them on this point, anyway. 


Rimuru tells the group of his ideals. Some, like Kaijin, say he 
is too soft and naive, but the entire group is in favor of his 
plan. The direction is set. 


Next the topic of discussion turned to the crushing of the 
invading armies. At this point, Rimuru proclaimed, "I want 
you to leave that alliance to me." 


Some were afraid this might be too dangerous, but Rimuru 
has already accepted the risk. He shows no doubt, nor does 
his resolve waver, so none of his subordinates dared speak 
out against him. Benimaru appeared to want to say some- 
thing...but he recognized the will of his master. 


There were no objections to his plan. Everyone has faith in 
Rimuru. 


Now the stage is set for Rimuru to become a Demon Lord. 
The first counterattack will be the signal to fight, and the 
curtain rises on battle...

TOO EARLY 
FOR US TO

THE MOST
