A Dangerous Existence
The shocking news made it’s way to the temporary Prime Minister’s Official Residence in Osaka.
“Is it true? Were the monsters really wiped out…?”
“I don’t know the details, but there’s no mistaking that they’re all dead.”
The Prime Minister and the Chief Cabinet Secretary were both stupefied by Chief of Staff Hayashida’s words, however he didn’t stop there.
“From what we gathered from the Self-Defense Force members on site, apparently there was a man flying in the sky, that used magic to single handedly wipe out the monsters.”

Major General Yamamoto couldn’t believe his ears.
“A person using magic? Did someone like that really appear!?”
‘I’m sure that’s what Sakamoto said but… it’s just ridiculous… there’s no way a person like that exists…’
“He came back! Hey, we’re over here!”
Shimizu was enthusiastically waving his hand around. Only around two hours have passed since the man known as Gojo departed to kill the monsters.
‘From here till Nagoya there should have been more than tens of thousands of monsters… If he was really able to wipe them all out by himself in this short amount of time, then he really is a monster among monsters…! It seems like Shimizu trusts him, but to be honest I’m a bit scared… And I don’t think I’m the only one that feels that way.’
“Shimizu, is this an acquaintance of yours?”
“Yea! He’s Sakamoto, the guy who asked me to go and find you.”
“Oh, so it’s you…”
“It’s nice to meet you, I’m the Self-Defense Force’s Colonel Sakamoto. Thank you for saving us in this time of need. After hearing of your rumors I ended up asking an unreasonable request of Shimizu to come and find you. I’m glad we were able to meet.”
“See! Isn’t he uptight. I told you not to worry about it already.”
Gojo let out a quiet laugh and proceeded to head towards Shimizu.
“Shimizu can you lend me your hand for a sec.”
After Gojo took Shimizu’s hand, a strong light burst forth.
The warm light particles went and wrapped themselves around Shimizu.
At the place where his right leg should have been light started to shine, and after some time passed his leg, which was once lost, had been brought back the way it was before.
“You must be kidding me!? My… my leg’s back?”
All of the people in the vicinity watched the unbelievable sight unfolding in front of their eyes with their mouths wide open. The only thing they could do was watch…
The Cabinet Ministers have been urgently gathered for a Cabinet Meeting.
It would be here that they would decide what to do with the Magician Gojo, who had taken care of the monsters.
“It’s precisely because of his efforts that we are still here in Japan. Without a doubt we should treat him as a hero!”
The Prime Minister Tada thought that they should be proud that a person like him had appeared amongst the Japanese population. He wasn’t sure if Gojo would be willing, but Prime Minister Tada wanted to award him publicly for his efforts.
However the Chief of Staff and Chief Cabinet Secretary’s opinions were different.
“Think about it. A person with such great power, is he really Japanese, rather we don’t know if he’s even human!”
“Even if he was Japanese, we can’t just let a person with the power of a whole army run free.”
The Chief Cabinet Secretary said coldly to the Prime Minister who still wasn’t willing to back down.
“He might turn out to be a greater threat than even the monster. We must take some kind of measures.”
