Rio was accepted into a school for magicians, as soon as she arrived she was told to go out and look for a familiar. While out trying to find one, Rio gets lost and runs into a guy named Kyle. Rio ends up liking Kyle because of his kindness. While going back out to look for a familiar, she runs into Arushel who is a part of an ancient demon race. He was running away from the Witch of the West who wanted to claim him as her familiar. Arushel ends up forcing a kiss contract with Rio in order to gain his powers and true form so that he wouldn't have to be with the Witch of the West. But this only enraged her and as punishment for taking away her beloved Arushel, she curses Rio with sorrowful love spell. When Rio is with the one she likes she turns into a guy!Description by LuffyNoTomo
I'll go and see Al
I couldn't find Al
Astell Reed's library has a lot of specialty books. I'll start looking from there first
But since the Witch of the West is a high level mage, it won't be that easy to find out where she's hiding
Hey. Why do that at this time of day!?
Aime, Little Lala!
It's our "girls' time"!!
I need to ask you a favor
I want to look for Al
Sure, I've been okay and carefree, but to be honest, I can't give up. I want to see him once more and talk to him
And if you can't...
I'm looking for clues that'll lead me to the Witch of the West's hideout. I want you to help me
Maybe they're shocked to be dragged along like this
But it's the only way. I can't give up
I was too late
It felt like you're really unwavering and ready to move forward, so I guess it's okay with us
If you tell us that you wanna look for him, of course we'll all agree to help you
We're happy that you're depending on us, Rio
We're friends, aren't we?!
So we'll go out and find him for sure!
Yes, we are
Our search has begun
It'll be difficult to look for the Witch of the West using magic
Until now, no one's been able to take on the challenge by using their true powers
But Rio has something different from the other challengers
It's her bond with Al
Al's whereabouts are hard to find since the Witch of the West hid him
However, if Al and Rio's bond is still intact
Then we'll feel his presence for sure
I found him...!
That's enough. Come to your senses and please love me
When you say that I'm going back to your side, isn't it like saying that I'll become your slave, huh?
You're cute even when you're cold, but honestly, I prefer obedient guys
Stubborn as usual, aren't we? You don't have any magic power left, so you must be feeling in over your head
You've been holding out pretty good everyday, huh?
Come on, I don't think you have to feel bitter
I can manipulate and turn you into a doll just like these innocent cuties~
Can you please drink this potion?
I don't wanna
Until you give me what's in that fallen wizard's hands
Hold it! You heard it didn't you, Noah!?
Who the f*ck are you calling a hag?!!
I won't drink that. Do you get what I'm saying, you hag?
Hurry up and give Al what he wants!!
Huh?~~ In your dreams~~
If you obtain this, then your little comedy skit will end, won't it?~~
Stop messing with him. Is that the real thing!!?
Isn't that a given!?
Is it that valuable!?
Ahh, right. There's not much to lose
Once I find an opportunity, I'll definitely get it back...!
Geez. Enough! Just bow down
If you keep up this stubbornness... I'll have to make you drink it mouth to mouth, Al~~♡
!? Cut it out. It'll give them the wrong idea
So someone broke into the barrier, huh?
That's plain gutsy...
Where did the perpetrator enter from?
Is it that girl...!?
Why's Rio here...!?
Didn't you tell me that you already warned her not to have anything to do with Al anymore?
Noah! What's the meaning of this!?
Oh, no. I already did
What if she wasn't listening?
Since they came all the way here
Why don't we make things more interesting?
We're already here, but how can we get in touch with Al?
I'll think of a solution......
I'll give all of you a warm welcome!
What the heck's happening here?!
Why are we here?!
Woah! Did you just break into our hideout!?
Hey! Don't just do as you please!!
Thank goodness he's safe......
Oh, they look really weird, though...
Hey. This isn't what you told me!!
What did he tell her?
Relax, we ain't kidnapping her
She just came here on her own
So you came here as Al was about to escape
... What do you mean?
Why did you just decide to go here on your own?
The reason I came here is because I want us to talk
Let's talk, Al
Oh no, looks like our little Al here's getting embarr@ssed~~
Did he want to get away from me?
But apart from the many witches who have no idea how to find the Witch of the West, you managed to get here. And since I admire your feelings for Al, I'll tell you something
It seems like you feel the same for each other
You see, Al wanted to protect you
Al came to see me
On the night he had disappeared
Hurry up and come with us
Because if you don't, I'll do something bad to her
Promise me you won't lay a hand on her
That's my condition
Isn't it funny?
That he suffers just for a human even though he's a demon
Leave without a word just to save me?
Were you touched?
... I know
It's because of something important to Al, right?
Too bad, you aren't the real reason why he is with us
What? You already knew? How anticlimactic
Although I thought you were gonna be shocked
So, do you know why this thing's important?
Oh! You sound pretty well! I really hate it!
... Hey, shut up
Is he talking to himself?
I'm strong so I can somehow enter and leave the magical world, but I happened to overhear something in~~teresting!
I'll show you how Arciel came to be. It's a tragic love story
Well, then. You shall now see
Something keeps on flowing into my head......
It's Arciel's past
Hundreds of years ago
How did the spirit collections go?
The bait was taken and they succumbed to greed. I was happy with it
As demons, it's our obligation to collect human spirits
Very well, then
We shouldn't defile our mighty family name
We shouldn't defile our mighty family name
Do you understand, Arciel?
That kid won't be able to handle it
I'm a demon, too
Everyone here are top-cl@ss demons, so why was that failure even born?
I'll be a demon just like my brothers
Did you call for me?
Form a contract with me
If you do, I'll grant you any wish in exchange... So?...
My dad died because of his illness
The townsmen just gave us a good luck charm, and told us that we had no choice but to wait for a miracle...
We didn't have any money, so a doctor couldn't help us
I'll do anything, just help us
Anything, you say?...
You idiot... I'm here to take your life
Hey, you. Did you call me out here just to cure his illness?
Here, make him drink this!! Don't just call me out because of this kind of wish!
The next time we meet, I'm totally taking your soul
I'm a high-level demon, for god's sake!!
And if you don't like it, I'll make you struggle before you summon a demon, you spoiled brat!!
Looks like Arciel failed again
Did he miss out on collecting spirits?
I bet the humans preached to him and told him to let them go
What an idiot
Hey Al, you pu$$y
If you don't hunt down a single human soul, we'll make you sleep on our laps
You're a disgrace to our family
I don't care
As a demon, I'm not really sad about being isolated
But without hesitation, they leave nothing for worthless humans...
I'd rather have them try shaking me up
Is it that strange for a demon like me?
What are you doing?
Can't you tell just by looking?
We're high-level demons, so helpless, good-for-nothing demons are worthless to us
Teach that stupid imp a lesson
Oh yeah, if strong demons already exist, then why must worthless beings exist, too? Can you tell me, good-for-nothing Arciel?
... You're blocking the way, so move over, young master Taiphel
You're blocking my way, though
Whatcha say you stupid brat?!!
Hey. Join us, Arciel
We're the same age, aren't we?...
I can hurt him all you want. It's fun!
I can never acknowledge a know-nothing demon like you as my ally
I don't wanna
I'm not interested anyway
Stop acting so cocky, you sh1tty brat!!
We figured you're a scaredy sh1thead
We do what we want! And we will totally taunt you!
Not that I care
I don't care if I get outcasted
But I knew I was weird
You pathetic bastards...
Run away now
Go on, go on
*pigya pigya (thank you)*
Who is she?
It's Misfit Roye!
Hey, b1tch! You party pooper!
You just spoiled our fun
You b1tch... Just you wait and see! You'll regret this!!
...... Why did you help me?
And for a demon to do it for someone else
It's because I think we're the same
Is she a weirdo? I never expected this...
Roye was a weird girl
She's a nameless eccentric in the magical world who just does what she feels like
Hey, Al!! Long time no see!
Truth is, unlike most demons, she doesn't seem to change the way she lives
Today, a really lonely person who wants to die is calling out to me. So, I'll listen to him all day, and then come home
She's being too cozy...
She's what you'd call a free spirit
She really is an idiot...
Who even decided what demons should act like?
I help others when I feel like it, and I also kill when I feel like it!
Demons are strangely and highly family-oriented, but it's also weird that they share strong bonds with their friends. I think demons should be like me! I hate being restricted
I mean, who cares if you don't fit the mold of a 'demon'?
This is what I am
But since you are still a kid, you may have mixed feelings
What you see is what you get
But you called out to me that day
Who you calling a kid?...
Even if you feel out of place, and inferior to others, at the end of the day, you're still a 'demon'
Just live the way you want
You've been hanging out with that Roie girl lately
2 losers consoling each other, I guess?
You bring shame to great demons!!
Blazing demon uppercut
You sure have a lot of time on your hands. You shallow demon
We may be the same kind of demons, but I don't care as long as I feel good with myself
You son of a b1tch!!
I guess it's good to live this way
From that day onwards, I have only lived the way I saw fit
300 years later
I can't believe you've turned into such a bold, and shameless demon
Aww, you were a gentle little cutie back then, though~
I mean, I'm fine now. Because I'm Arciel
Well, anyhow, you can still count on me, ya know
Who are they?
They're signaling an invitation
The bastard hasn't changed a bit. He's still with that weird woman
He even forged a contract with a human, no less
He seems like the type to exploit spirits because of filthy desires
He's the same old good-for-nothing for choosing a human
Yeah, what a perv
He said he hates saintly women, though
Whatever, you're from a top-cl@ss family anyway, so you have their magical power. I'm sure Taiphel can put his strong body to good use
He sure took some damage the other day
Get him back for what he did to you
You were born an elite, but you're a mere failure. How dare you make a fool of me with that arrogant face
You're so annoying, you make me feel like throwing up!!
And most of all
How dare that failure give me such humiliation
I can't hold this any longer!
Oh, it's you again
I've had to deal with you everytime. Do you finally realise how useless you are?
What's with that scheming look?
Comparing to how great you were, you're now worse than your friends
This is all your fault!!
What? Will your lackeys gang up on me again?...
Take a good look. This is a 'demon's payback knife'
If you want her to live, apologise
One wrong move, and she gets it
Kneel in front of me
Mess your face up with tears and mud, or else-
Beg for my forgiveness and apologise for everything you've done to me!!
I don't wanna
The fallen Taiphel
Do you think such trash who uses nothing but his fists can be called a top-cl@ss demon?
What did you... Just say?
You lowly animal
