(Potential) new series?

The sun dazzled upon the little garden in the nursery.

“Don’t cry anymore, Fuu-chan. Okay?”

I did my best to appease the girl letting out large drops of tears.
However, no matter how much I tried to do so, she wouldn’t stop.

“Yuu-kun! Apologize now!”

“I’m not in the wrong.”

Yuu-kun pouted his lips to the side.
This biggest bully in the nursery just couldn’t get along with Fuu-chan for some reason.

“It’s her fault for not kicking the ball to me anyway!”

“But Fuu-chan’s the one who started playing with the ball first. Why did you snatch it away?”

“I made her lend it to me, but she wouldn’t.”

“Goodness…”

The sky-blue ball at the feet rolled, swaying leisurely in the breeze.

“Fuu-chan, here’s the ball.”

“Waaahhh!”

“Yuu-kun, apologize.”

“Don’t wanna.”

—Uu…what do I do now?

I really do like kids, but I’m really at my wits’ end at such a situation.

—What do I do? What do I do…?

Just when I’m at a loss as to what to do.

 

“Oya oya? What’s the matter?”

 

The ball floated gently, and the one picking it up showed his usual genial smile.

“Principal…!”

“Good work there.”

Principal consoled me as he smiled, the wrinkles on his face further emphasized as he patted on the heads of Yuu-kun and Fuu-chan.

“You want to play with this ball?”

He asked tenderly, and Fuu-chan nodded.

“You want to play with this ball?”

Yuu-kun was faced with the same question, and his head remained tilted aglance as he nodded.

“I see, I see.”

Principal nodded, and let the ball swirl rapidly on his fingertips. The sky blue ball rumbled as it spun on his index finger; Yuu-kun and Fuu-chan widened their eyes as they saw this.

“Since both of you want this ball—”

Principal beamed, and did a barehanded chopping action.

“I shall ‘half it’.”

 

A hundred years passed thereafter.

 

Till this day, I could still recall the scenes that day.

A blue, blue sky, a warm sun, a dazzling golden nursery, the impish face showed by the Principal, and kids showing sparkling eyes.

Time passed, the Principal passed away, Yuu-kun, Fuu-chan and the other kids became adults. They advanced in age, and finally died off.

On this world, I am the only one who knew about all these. These memories will never fade away.

At the final moment before my consciousness was cut off, I suddenly wondered.

Ah, Principal, my dear Principal—

Is my ‘Halving’ considered a success?

  1. Wait u guys forgot the most important question is this tanslator san’s own work or some light novel???????????????????????
    What if in disguise of LN he is making us read his work???????????????????????????????????????????





    But it’s reallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly good :3

  2. It would be really nice if a responsible translator took Hataraku Maou-sama! series. IMHO it was one of the best rep of the Demon King vs Hero hype(before the reincarnation/teleportation to fantasy world hype). Anime covered only the beginning of the story, and I bet there are a lot of people interested in the development of the storyline

  3. Awesome.. But I wish you take on another project as well beside this. It’ name is “Kyuuketsuki ni Natta Kimi wa Eien no Ai wo Hajimeru”. If so I will be grateful

  4. What about Hisshou Dungeon Unei Houhou

    brief summary ”One day in a sunny leisure day, a woman visited my house and asked me if I’m interested in managing a dungeon along with support offer from goddess. But of course, I refused. Eh? I shouldn’t ignore person in trouble, moreover if it’s beautiful woman? No way that’s too bothersome and why do I have to do that? I’m perfectly satisfied with my comfortable life now, throwing it away is just overly stupid…… …sigh, fine, so it’s go to another world, become a dungeon master, manage a dungeon and deal with Mana circulation problem? Understood, but how to do it? Let me show you how to “
    Don’t know if you like harems but this ones got like 12+ heroines also has some of the pictures of the heroines in the forum on animesuki

  5. It makes me kind of curious… And it’s kinda lame at the same time.

    On one hand there’s “What the what?!! Is the protagonist a BALL?! Interesting!”

    Then there’s “What? A ball as a protagonist? What, are authors getting sick of using living things as protagonists, and are planning to use non-living things from now on?”

    But then again it’s only a teaser. Who knows, it might be good.

  6. Um…if u will take on another project after finished Hikaru, how about to take “E?! Heibon desu Yo?!” That’s not an ecchi nor harem genre :3

    But…I do still curious about this ‘ball’ story… Dilemma…… T_T
