After a calm day, there was nothing special about this evening either.
I finished the morning training, handled the store’s paperwork and ate a delicious dinner. Because I had a lot of things going on recently, it wasn’t bad to end such a day in such a relaxed way.
It’s good to take some rest and feel relieved. It looks like some of the built-up stress had disappeared. At night, an announcement resounded in my mind.
【World Psalms [Legend of the Black Eclipse Demon], 【Sub-cast Member】 Dodomeki has ranked up】
【Since the “1st” Condition 【Rank Up】 has been cleared, the title 【Shiki Koukan】 will be granted】
【World Psalms [Legend of the Black Eclipse Demon], 【Formation of the 8 Demon Generals】 has been completed. All abilities of the 【Formation of the 8 Demon Generals】 have been released alongside it.】
【When all members of the 【Formation of the 8 Demon Generals】 are joined in battle, they will be able to use united attack 【Devastating Attack ・ 8 Demon Formation’s Massacre】.】
【When all members of the 【Formation of the 8 Demon Generals】 are joined in battle, they will be able to use formation effect 【Unique Formation ・ 8 Demon Battle Formation】.】
Apparently, Dodomeki was the correct assumption to be the last person, and not the 5 ogre squad.
Though I was worried what would happen if it was the 5 ogre squad, I put those thoughts aside for now.
I asked Dodomeki about it through the ear cuffs. She became a “Kugimeki variant”.
Kugimeki, like her name suggests, is a kind of female ogre that has nine eyes. Though she has less eyes than when she was “Dodomeki”, who had them all over her body. Unlike when she was a Dodomeki that needed her high number of eyes to supplement her intelligence gathering, her current number seems much more efficient as the quality of each eye improved.
The positions of her eyes are as follows: she has a pair of eyes in the same place as humans, another pair as part of her eyebrows, an eye bigger than the others in the center of them, a couple in her palms and a pair on the back of each hand.
Kugimeki, compared to Dodomeki-chan, has long, black, glossy hair held together by an ornate hairpin and she had the appearance of a beautiful Japanese woman with a thin veil of make-up. Though the others wouldn’t know about that.
Her Japanese clothes are sort of an organic armor. The black cloth is embroidered with the image of a blooming cherry tree along with petals.
As she whirls around with her red Japanese umbrella, which is her organic weapon, her red geta makes a clip-clop sound. If she went out on a night when there's a full moon, it would certainly be attractive.
As far as her combat abilities go, they were as unimpressive as before. At least she is able to self-defend by emitting mysterious rays from her eyes.
Like before, her significance is in the fact that she gathers intelligence and commands the army from the rear.
After having heard the general announcement, I quickly fell asleep. I’ll start work early tomorrow.
