Army of Giant Insects [Part 3]


“Many of my mother’s ‘Monster x Imperial Japanese food’ recipes have been completed, and the repairs for the destroyed houses using Over‘s rubbles has been progressing smoothly.
The manufacture of canned food is also underway without any problem, and the company has found a way to establish communication to a certain extent. We have done everything we needed to do.
Now, we’re going home,” said William lightly.


The Rothschild company had been working hard the past two months for the Imperial Japanese citizens and Emma’s sake, and had won the citizens’ trust.
Because they didn’t understand the language, they couldn’t negotiate without having Imperial Prince Tasuku or the Stuart family around.
But Joshua’s suggestion to use a third language had made things much easier.


When the Kingdom people memorized Imperial Japanese, they couldn’t remember it for a long time, even if it was just one word.
And the Imperial Japanese people weren’t used to using other languages in the first place. 


When the Imperial Japanese people doubted Joshua’s idea because they thought using another language would only be more confusing, he introduced them to the San Crossian language.

San Crossian, the official language of San Cross, was a strange language that could somehow basically be understood just by memorizing two words: “Luckle” and “Rockle”.

Their friends at the academy, the twins Catherine and Caitlyn, took this class as their elective.

They still had to turn to the Stuart family or Imperial Prince Tasuku for the specific practical details, but they could do most things just fine with San Crossian.


“The Kingdom… House Stuart’s help… How can we thank you… Should we give a reward after all…?“


“ “ “ “ “There’s no need!” ” ” ” ”


The Stuart family was very adamant about their dislike for rewards.


“But I don’t know how much longer I can live.
Thinking that I cannot fulfill your wishes pains me.“




For generations, many members of the Imperial Family had a short life.
The Emperor himself had been in poor health recently.


“Maybe it was because my anxiety has eased a lot since Over was exterminated, but my limbs are no longer numb, and I can walk just fine without a cane… However, of course the disease will not be cured that easily.“


The deathly disease that had haunted the Imperial Family.

Everyone died with no exception.


“Your Imperial Majesty…“


The sobbing of the vassals, including the samurais, reverberated around the room.


“Uh… Um… Pardon…? Is that disease… beriberi?“


Emma asked with a fluffy voice that didn’t match the sorrowful mood.


“! Lady Emma? Is there perhaps a specific remedy for the deadly beriberi disease in the Kingdom?!“


Imperial Prince Tasuku looked at Emma with eyes full of expectation.


“No, um… there’s no specific remedy…“


“Haa, of course there isn’t.
Even the most renowned doctor couldn’t cure it.
I have raised my voice at you out of my desperate hope… Please forgive me.“


Feeling despondent, Imperial Prince Tasuku cast his eyes down.


“…Uhh, well… the cause of beriberi is vitamin B1 deficiency(?) so…“




“It’s most likely because you ate white rice instead of brown rice, so your body didn’t get the nutrition it needed.“




“That’s why you should switch to eating brown rice… Ah… and pork like armored boars and orcs? Besides, if the Kingdom’s foodstuff can be eaten in Imperial Japan… then it’s pretty much already solved…?“ 


As Emma mumbled to herself, she realized that this problem had already been resolved.


“What do you mean?“


Imperial Prince Tasuku looked at Emma once more.


“The cause of the disease, nutrient deficiency, can be cured by eating armored boars or orcs.
Bread or pasta made from the Kingdom’s wheat also contains that necessary nutrition… That’s why I think you will be fine as long as you maintain the current diet.“


“Beriberi is a nutritional disease, like scurvy in the Kingdom,” explained Emma to Imperial Prince Tasuku.


“T-The beriberi… is cured? By eating monsters?“


The Emperor really liked braised armored boar and ate it often.
The spaghetti napolitan that Melsa introduced, too, had entered the ranks of the Emperor’s favorite food.

So that’s why my body has been feeling better recently…? The Emperor realized.


“W-What shall I say… I should reward you for this…“


“ “ “ “ “There’s no need!” ” ” ” ”


The Stuart family responded in sync before the Emperor could finish his words for the nth time today.

From this day on, the way the samurais looked at William changed, the way the Imperial Family looked at Emma changed, and the Imperial Japanese citizens started to look at the Stuart family as if they were looking at gods.


House Stuart and its accomplishments were made known to every corner of Imperial Japan.
In addition to the extermination of Over, which had been kept a secret from the citizens until then, how they had saved the nation’s deity, the Emperor’s life was widely announced before the family could stop it.


Their favorite Imperial Japanese lifestyle became absurdly uncomfortable, and thus, the Stuart family decided to return home.


“Do you need some tailless whip scorpions?”

To Emma’s question, it went without saying that nobody nodded their heads.
