I was reincarnated in a modern day Onmyoji family – Chapter 30

Chapter 30 – First Battle

The streets are the same as in the normal human world, but after a chance encounter with a strange looking child, I clearly realized—this is not a world inhabited by humans.

“Do you understand my language? #$*+P”%! %#”

“`+*#`%I knew you were a +#*! `You`re a genie, aren`t you? #+#%#%#_You’ll have to play with me! #+#%#_If you lose, you’ll be the #+#%#_ henchman of the winner!”

I know what he said, but I can’t get the meaning of what he’s saying.

What is this guy, a kid general? Are you making a friendship guide?

Genie? I’m a human being. You must be confusing me with something.

I don’t want to talk to this kind of guy when I have a headache.

“I’m a human being. I don’t know what the $$%#`*# game is or what it means.”‘* + {*? ** and where are we in the first place! %$~=`*”

“`*#*#`What are you, #? $“Return to the spirit world#*{}” gone? $P would be just fine. ~{+*$#%'(If you beat me, I’ll #? $~{*`I’ll draw you. #? $~{*`Well, if you lose to me you get to be my henchman #? $~{*`(Even if you lose and become my henchman, after we sign the contract, I will #? $~{*`I’ll send you home.”

Spirit world?

Return formation?


There are too many words I’m curious about.

I don’t know what they are.

I just know that this guy has a way out of this place.

“It looks like you’re not going to let me leave without a match. So, what’s the game? I’ve had a headache for a while now, and it’s pretty painful. And as you can see, I’m an toddler, so there’s only so much I can do. ……”

“Ho? You can afford to expose your weaknesses. The game has been decided, let’s duel!”

“Hey, wait a minute! Listen to me! Please, hear me out.”

I tried to be polite, but the mystery boy wouldn’t listen.

He seems to be the type of person who doesn’t listen to others.

I, on the other hand, began to understand more and more the meaning of the unknown language as I interacted with him.

He picked up a wooden stick and drew a large circle on the ground, surrounding us as if to say, this is the battlefield.

“My name is Dragalde, son of Dragrad and Gargnea! Now, you, too, tell me your name! This is a sacred duel for your true name!”

His pitch-black face is so dark that it is impossible to read his facial expression.

Yet, I could tell that he was smiling belligerently.

I guess I have no choice but to accept the challenge. He is the only one I can rely on, he has not listened to me when I have asked him for help, and even if I lose, he is going to let me go home.

Above all, I don’t want to stay in this place for too long. Not to mention the headache, but I kind of feel like I shouldn’t stay here. I’m beginning to feel an eerie comfort that makes me want to stay and live here. It’s not logical, it’s instinct that’s screaming at me.

But what is a true name?

I have never heard of such a fantastic thing. …… Oh, by the way, Sei is a part of the name given to me in the birth ceremony.

I believe it’s……

“My name is Kyobe Kyo, Sei Shujin Dai Eishinro . I will accept this duel. You’ll really send me home, won’t you?”(T(N – From this point on I am changing the name of MC from Saint to Sei)

“Of course. The sacred duel is absolutely secured, you know. So you, too, be my henchman if you lose!”

It’s a match, but it’s still a smiley fight between kids.

If we strengthen our bodies, we’ll end up unscathed, right?

Such expectations come to mind, but I have a bad feeling about it.

“Admit defeat or lose your consciousness! *The bell at the eleventh hour signals the start of the contest. Ready!”

Maybe I’ve come to the world of battle manga.

I never expected that I would have to fight at the age of three and a half, even though I have lived a life completely free of battles from my previous life until now.

Huh? Come to think of it, I’ve been fighting with mysterious creatures since I was born. I guess that’s a fight in a sense, too.

Haha, my head hurts and I can’t think straight. I want to leave this place as soon as possible.

Win or lose, though, I’m a man, and I want to win a fight.

But how can I win a fight? Is it like a golden target or something? In the first place, this guy is not a human being, so does he have kryptonite or not?

Time was running out for my thoughts to go round and round.

G—– G—- G—–

The bell, rang.


“What, even if you’re a genie, this is nothing. You can’t do much about it.”

It’s such a strange world, you never know what might happen. I had consciously increased the physical strength of my entire body, just in case.

I thought that most attacks would be painless, but then a boy’s fist punched me in the stomach.

I felt the most intense pain and shock I had ever felt in my life.

My internal organs and bones screamed.

What the heck, there’s no way I’m going to punch a 3 year old this seriously!

“What, you’re not going to fight back? Then give up quickly.”

I was crouched on my stomach and a fist bone rained down on my head.

My face hit the ground.

Ouch, ouch, ouch.

This is not a children’s fight. It’s a killing match.

It takes an extraordinary physical strength to hurt me, who is harder than a stone.

If there is such a being, it seems to be……


“Come on, this whole thing makes it sound like I’m bullying you instead of dueling you. My father’s duels were so much cooler.”

I fell to the ground, got kicked in the side of my stomach, and rolled around the grounds with a rumble.

I’m not sure, but I think I may have cracked a rib or something.

Ouch, ouch, ouch.

The enemy looking down at me was saying something, but my brain, which was already tortured by a headache and in a state of panic after receiving EMERGENCY from my body, had no time to understand it.

I had more important things to do than that.

Who is this guy?

“You…… Yōkai. Only a Yōkai can use such a ridiculous power. This must be a different space, like a ward created by Yōkai or something like that. Oh, I see. It’s not because of the Body Strengthening, it’s because Yōkai have invaded my house.”

“What? What are you talking about?

I had never met a real Yōkai before, so I didn’t realize it.

Oh, right, Yōkai can also change their appearance and deceive people.

Do Yōkai use language to deceive us?

“If you’re a Yōkai, you can kill me.”

If it’s not a children’s fight, if the other party is a Yōkai, then I can use these talismans.

What I took out of my jacket pocket was a homemade talismans that combined three of the ten different patterns I learned from my shitty father.

“I’m afraid of you hurting me. I’m afraid of you hurting my family. I’m afraid of you who I have no idea what you’re talking about. So, I have to exterminate you scary Yōkai.”

Scary, if I don’t kill this guy, I might lose everything I hold dear.

Painful, I could get a second chance at life, but it might be over in just three years.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no!

I’ll get rid of this monster and I’ll make it home for sure!

The physical pain, which I had never experienced even in combat with the Irregulars, was causing adrenaline to be pumped out of me and my brain to turn bright red.

The Body Strengthening that was no longer unconsciously operating at full capacity was beginning to push me over the edge, just as it had done when I arrived here.

“The first land refinement–the full release of my treasured spiritual elements! This is my full power! Eat this!”

My body, filled to the brim with energy, quickly carried the spiritual element to the talisman.

I named it “Hoyu Reinori,” which is a jewel-like shining spiritual element perfected by the first land refining process.

Each time a piece of the jewel-like spiritual element is placed on a talisman, a dazzling light illuminates the temple grounds.

The space around the temple appears to shimmer, as if to show off the power of this highly polished spiritual element.

“Hey, what’s this? Perhaps this is the art of the genie?!”

I released a talisman in the direction of the Yōkai that was speaking aloud.

It flew through the air due to the “talisman flying” effect on the tag, and my spiritual power manipulation changed the trajectory of the talisman. It seems that the Yōkai apparently did not see the irregular trajectory of the talisman. Without so much as dodging, it hit him in the temple.

“The Dragrads can withstand this much…”

The irascible voice disappeared with the impact of the talismans.

Suck it up.

The remaining two formations I drew on the talismans were “Vibration” and “Rotation”.

By themselves, they have no significant effect.

“Vibration” makes the talismans shake like the vibrations of a smartphone, and “Rotation” just makes the talismans spin around and around. It is a simple pattern suitable for beginners.

However, the Kyobe Family Onmyojutsu Instructional Manual describes a further application of the technique.

By overlapping these two formations, connecting them with 12 keyways, and enclosing them with a single circle, it becomes a vicious talisman that twists and turns through space with vibration and rotation.

Of course, there was no way such a technique could be taught to a three-year-old, so I learned it by stealing an instructional manual that was left behind when my asshole father was out of his seat.

I tried it once and the stone was cut off like a piece of paper. It is a heinous technique that should not be used against people.

………No, I’m well aware that it’s not okay to disobey my supervisor’s instructions, or even my educator’s guidance policy. ……… I’m sorry about this my shitty father.

I knew very well that it was better for a kid to learn the safe stuff first, and that it would be a bad thing if things should go out of control and lead to a serious accident.

However, through the battles with the irregulars, I realized that I never know when the enemy will attack.

Since you never know when or where you will require power, you must always be prepared with a means to attack.

Therefore, I mastered this formation by tearing up the side of the paper and made a talisman.

So that I would be able to survive in case of emergency.

When I remembered the fear of having my legs stolen by irregularities, I could easily learn this very complicated formation.

It is difficult to mass-produce them, though, because you have to be extremely precise in order to produce a successful one.

But, well, it was ordinary spiritual power that I poured into the talismans when I tried it out, so I didn’t know what would happen until I used my treasured spiritual elements.

Space was distorted around the Yōkai’s belly, and the effect reached a spherical shape with a radius of 10 meters.

All the cobblestones in the precinct were blown to pieces, and the ground was gouged into a hemispherical shape.

The Yōkai in the center had its limbs twisted in every direction, and in the next instant they were twisted apart, sprinkling black blood.

Perhaps because of the distorted space, the screaming Yōkai’s voice was blocked out.

The effect of the talismans lasted for about a minute and then disappeared in a huff as if the storm had passed.

The result was about a thousand times more terrifying than when I first tried it.

The throbbing pain in my head subsided with the disappearance of the talismans.

I don’t know why, but it doesn’t matter at this point.

I must put an end to the Yōkai in front of me.

To my surprise, the Yōkai still retained its original form.

The twisted limbs had not been shattered into pieces, and the torso had only been torn in eight pieces. The fact that the head was still attached to the body left me speechless with astonishment.

It’s hard to say for the person who did it, but I have underestimated Yōkai, to think that even such tremendous destructive power couldn’t kill them.

The opponent is a Yōkai.

It might not be enough for them to die from a lot of blood loss. It would be better to crush his head.

I should burn the body as well, just to be safe.

I’ve used up all of my accumulated treasure spiritual elements, so I’m going to give him another blow with the fifth refinement spiritual element.

With that in mind, I took the talismans out of my pocket, and at that moment, I was back in my own home.

I blinked and the whole scene changed.

It was exactly the same as when I wandered into the other world.

“What about ……? Huh? What happened? Why is everything back to normal?”

Did something ward-like disappear because I killed the Yōkai, or is there another reason?

Oh, the Body Strengthening has been over the limit for some time now.

Could that be the cause?

Thus, my first battle ended without me knowing why.
