When I Fell Madly in Love With the Heroine, the World Changed. ~the Strongest Gamer in the World Becomes the Strongest Knight in the Game World - Chapter 76
“Here they come, a tremendous number… I’m sure Lord sama has been informed, but I don’t expect any reinforcements for a while.”
Sieg Sylphid stood on the front line.
He is a retired man and would not normally go into battle himself.
However, as the person in charge of Japan, now is not the time to be saying such things, as we are about to be attacked.
“If this operation ends in failure, the war will end.”
The enemy forces are nearly several times larger than ours.
Even though it is a defensive battle, the difference in strength will eventually push us over the edge.
Even so, considering the reinforcements, there was a possibility if we endured for three days.
“The evacuation is not yet complete. Reinforcements from the home country will arrive sooner or later. You guys must hold out for three days.”
“I will endure, although I will probably die.”
“Well said. I’m counting on you. I’m counting on you, you’re all I’ve got.”
“Because, Sieg, you’re going to release all the second-level soldiers, and we don’t have enough strength.”
“I’ve just eliminated the risk of being shot in the back.”
“So that’s how it’s going to be, huh, second class promotion… Make sure you take out the survivor’s allowance when you get back to Asgar Empire. My daughter is still a little girl.”
His subordinates laughed at Sieg’s words.
Sieg released all second-class Asgar citizens, or Japanese, in other words, when he built the defense line.
Because of this, their forces have been reduced, if not halved.
“Haha, sorry, I’ll leave that to the others.”
Sieg then takes a step forward.
If he goes into battle, he goes before his own men, because that is his style of fighting.
“I won’t allow you to die before me. So you guys, don’t die! I’ll leave my back to you.”
“…Okay, I understand. I’ll follow you! Until the end!”
And then Sieg and the 13th District Resident Army also took flight.
In front of them, the World Allied Forces and a single red KOG charge in.
A large force, numbering more than 10,000, covers the sky and the sea.
Finally, Sieg gives the order to all units.
“All hands to battle! Defend at all costs! Absolutely defend to the death! Defend until I die!”
Here, the operation to retake Japan began.
“What the hell is this aircraft! Ugh, ah!!!!!!”
The girl fights, like a raging fire.
The bright red aircraft bursts into flames and strikes down the enemy KOG.
“With this… 5!”
With a swing of the girl’s red sword, the fifth Asgar’s KOG was defeated.
The girl, who charged in as the first spear of the World Federation, was soon surrounded by as many as ten of them.
“Don’t get too far from my eyes, Princess. I can’t protect you.”
The strongest man in Asia covered Kaguya and defeated the enemy to keep her from being surrounded.
His blue aircraft is as high-performing as Kaguya’s Kagutsuchi, known as the Blue Dragon.
However, the pilot’s skill is superior to Byakuren’s.
One of the strongest in the world is no joke.
“I don’t need it, I don’t need the Commander-in-Chief’s protection.”
“You’re utterly stubborn… well, that’s a good thing too, but the enemy is also on the defensive. They are not so naive that you can break through immediately. And the hole that the princess dug was quickly filled.”
Kaguya and Byakuren take a breather, having taken out most of the enemies around them.
They returned to the mothership to replenish ammunition.
The enemy defense line, once broken by the assault, is re-established.
The Asgar’ forces are highly skilled, and the power of their daily training is demonstrated without regret.
“So much for today…”
It is past midnight, and the sea is enveloped in darkness.
The World Federation forces suspend the day’s attacks and rest.
The next day, the onslaught is repeated.
However, they were unable to break the front line that day.
“It’s a hell of a counter-attack, I realise the law of three times the number of attacks. We should have more than doubled in number, but we can’t push them like this?”
“On the battlefields where I fought, they were pushing, but we’re being pushed back on other battlefields. Some battlefields are being defeated and retreating. What the hell…”
On the second night, Kaguya, Byakuren, Thor and other soldiers hold a strategy meeting on the mothership.
“Byakuren. If we wait any longer, reinforcements from Asgar’ will also arrive. Shouldn’t we deploy all our forces tomorrow?”
At Thor’s suggestion, Byakuren ponders.
Even Byakuren knows that much, and it is not a good idea to prolong the battle any longer.
“Show me the footage of the battlefield where we were defeated.”
(There are unusually strong troops. Is that where they pushed through the battlefield that we should have pushed through? That’s why we haven’t broken the front line…)
Then the Byakuren and the others watch the footage.
What they see in the footage are ordinary troops, and ordinary KOGs with slightly different decorations that are ahead of them.
However, its movements are.
“Strong… this is a mass-produced machine… it’s this guy. This decoration is a general, how do you see it Thor?”
“I saw the same thing once a long time ago. It was a unit that got the operation right and was able to surround us with overwhelming numbers, but they were impossibly persistent. And then we lost to the Lord Asgar’ who came in afterwards.”
“Oh, by the way, there was one. A former chief knight of the Holy Knights in this area, although I heard he had retired…”
“Ah, no doubt about it. I only know of him in the form of rumours, though.”
Byakuren, Thor and Kaguya think of the same person.
Someone who should have already retired from the front line.
The name of the chief holy knight, who was feared around the world for a time, but was never heard of on the battlefield again, along with rumors that he had retired.
Then Byakuren closes his eyes and contemplates.
He slowly opens his eyes and smiles.
“Then I will announce tomorrow’s mission.”
Asgar’, capital Valhalla.
“Haa, good. This is not a problem with these numbers. Get the reinforcements ready immediately! Have them arrive tomorrow!”
“Well, as expected of you, Lord-Sama. That amount in just two days…”
Lord was fighting too. Papers, supplies, food, weapons, all kinds of calculations were made.
Calculations of how many troops he could move, including in the event of Odin’s attack, and how many troops he could move to win the war.
It was only thanks to Lord’s resourcefulness that the reorganization of the army, which Odin had messed up, was put together in just two days.
“It’s nothing compared to what you’re risking your lives for on the battlefield, you guys are doing a great job.”
“No, no… but District 13 has not fallen yet… with these numbers… well.”
Pieces lined up on the board, an enemy force that even considers withdrawing in an instant when reported.
The defense line continues because Sieg was putting up a good fight and was reported to be able to withstand it, and it continued.
The difference in strength is approximately 10,000 KOGs in District 13, while the opposing World Federation is thought to have at least 50,000.
Although it is easier to defend, the difference is overwhelming.
The difference is so great that if all the forces were deployed at once, they would immediately fall, although this has not yet been done, as they would not know our strength.
“Sieg is persisting, that guy is extremely strong in the fight to defend. And he understands very well how important it is to have this district taken.”
“A god of war…”
“Yes, if we defend this area, the first battle of the World Federation will fail and the war will end, there will be no more bloodshed. That is why Sieg will not retreat. He will defend it with his life.”
Lord recalls the origin of Sieg’s two names.
“Only when he is leading an army, he is the strongest protector of the empire, even Osiris is second to him.”
The god of the army, Sieg’s second name, named after the army led by the man who works like a divine soldier.
(… don’t overdo it… Sieg).
Then a call comes in to Lord.
“…Oh, What? Raina-kun? Alone… no, okay. You can’t stop now, it won’t stop…”
The first report was that Reina Sylphid had been dispatched.
Using her special aircraft, the Aphrodite, she flew alone to Japan.
Early morning of the third day of the operation to retake Japan.
The World Federation launched an attack.
And Sieg and his men also launched a counterattack.
“Sieg… we can go on like this!”
“Ah, it’s the result of your hard work. Besides, we have just received word from the home country that reinforcements of tens of thousands of KOG units will arrive tomorrow. If we can hold out today, we will win.”
“Then it’s a critical moment. I felt impossibly strong when I fought Sieg-san, is this the power of the God of War?”
“Hmph. There’s no such foolishness. It’s the power of you guys, just me.”
Sieg then takes off with his KOG and holds up his sword and gun.
“I am leaving my back to you guys, that’s all. I’m counting on you today!”
His back gives courage to those behind him, and he can even risk his life to fight to protect it.
The troops led by Sieg have grown as if they were godlike, and are more than capable.
“Leave it to us!”
And when leading an army, Sieg becomes much stronger than when fighting alone.
That god of war takes off again today, to turn the battlefield of defeat into victory.
But three aircraft fly away at the same time, aiming at that aircraft.
Three aircraft, blue, red and yellow, take off from the same place.
The purpose of this single aircraft is only one, and its pilots are Byakuren, Thor and Kaguya, one of the strongest in the world.
The three of them are looking towards Sieg’s aircraft.
“Let’s go, Thor, Kaguya.”
Byakuren gives orders to Thor and Kaguya.
There is only one target: the single KOG, which is the enemy’s main prop.
“Defeat the God of War!”
