Along the way, between registering as an adventurer in Blumund and engaging in top-secret negotiations with the King, he learned about the challenges in dealing with humans. Then, when he reached Engrassia, he met another transplant From Japan, Yuuki Kagurazaka, and was able to meet Shizu's Five orphaned Foster children,

NOW THAT SHE MENTIONS I GUESS

cor WITH THE

OTHERS.

I HEARD YOU ARE Now A TEACHER IN THE HUMAN

MY POOR WORD CHILDREN, THEIR BODIES FATED TO CRUMBLE WITHOUT STABLE MAGICULES TO SUPPORT THEM...

..BUT SHE LASTED LONGER

BECAUSE

SHE WAS ABLE TO

STABILIZE

THE MAGIC.

y ja AND (WY, THERE he . IS NO a NI GUARANTEE WV THAT ONE we WOULD Ha i, Ss ACQUIRE / i SUCH A A ANS Coe | SKILL, EVEN ZN AFTER UNDER- fh TAKING THE SEVERE ; REQUIRE- Z MENTS.

SHE WAS ONCE IN THE SAME POSITION AS HER PUPILS

YE

ONLY A UNIQUE SKILL WOULD HAVE

THE POWER TO STABILIZE SUCH A VAST AMOUNT OF

MAGICAL ENERGY...

S... OF

COURSE.

Don't play with

your food.

IT WILL BE A

pirricurt Ke

TASK.

DO YOU

yy REMEMBER

SHIZU, RIGURD

THAT'S RIGHT. WHEN SHIZU WAS A CHILD, DEMON LORD LEON FUSED IFRIT TO HER.

AT LEAST, THAT'S THE THEORY THAT GREAT SAGE AND I CAME UP WITH.

KEY TO

wilS OF IN HER pre

FUSION WITH IFRIT,

THE

FIRE

FLAME IFRIT... SPIRITS, IFRITIS A HIGHER ELEMENTAL, SECOND ONLY TO ROYAL RANK IN POWER. |

MY SUSPICION IS THAT IFRIT

MANAGED TO KEEP HER MAGICULES

UNDER CONTROL.

SPIRITS WITHIN THE CHILDREN'S

BODIES.

MAGICAL GOOD ENERGY, IDEA.

AFTER ALL.

BUT THERE IS ONE

PROBLEM THAT

AND THERE ARE FAR FEWER HIGHER ELEMENTALS IN EXIS- TENCE...
