Sisters

Rias Gremory had something to do before going against Ise. Accompanied by her [Knight], she waited for a certain person who was moving together with Ise. That was probably a suggestion from the [Sekiryuutei of the Blazing Truth]’s strategist, Ravel. Right now, there were two people who were standing before Rias and Yuuto.Their beloved man wearing his crimson armour — Hyoudou Issei, and a woman wearing a Dragon’s mask — Bina Lessthan. That’s right, Rias wanted a face-off against Bina Lessthan before the final showdown with Ise. Ise then said to Rias.

“…We finally meet, but what are we going to do now I wonder?”

Ise also smiled wryly while looking at this match-up. Rias told Yuuto,

“Yuuto, I am counting on you.”

“Yeah.”

Yuuto then stood before Ise expressing his resolve through his aura and said.

“Ise-kun, would you please accompany me?”

In response to those words, Ise then looked at them and glanced at Bina Lessthan as he said.

“…Even if I reject that, you will have Rias fight against Bina-shi, right? I can also feel Gya-suke’s presence nearby as well. —Fine, I’ll face you till the end.”

He responded to Yuuto’s words and flew from that place. Ise felt Gasper’s presence. As Gasper was basically going to do the combination technique with Rias, he might’ve stayed hidden within Rias’s shadow. He must have been ordered to do that, so that if his master were to be in a dangerous situation, he could instantly provide support from the shadows. Ise and Yuuto flew away from the area, leaving Bina Lessthan to face Rias. Bina was releasing a combative aura.

“I’ll take you on, Rias Gremory.”

“I accept your challenge, Bina Lessthan.”

Rias understood that she would be no match for her opponent as is, so, she proceeded to initiate her combination technique with Gasper by reciting the chant.

“—Gasper, we’re using that.”

<<Understood.>>

“Darkness, everlasting darkness, respond to this Devil of destruction.”

<<Princess of destruction, symbol of extinction, use this darkness of the Demon God.>>

Gasper’s darkness appeared from Rias’s shadow as it writhed and started to cover Rias’s legs. It then gradually covered her entire body.

“My evil eye, brother of the evil eyes, gather onto this destruction of mine.”

<<My master, sister of destruction, drape this forbidden night and true darkness around you.>>

Rias’s body was then covered in darkness, culminating in a new form.. And then, Rias and Gasper chanted the last verse at the same time.

“<<Give the enemy before you absolute destruction!>>”

Everything was swallowed by darkness. The landscape was dyed jet-black. Floating in the centre of this darkness was a human-shaped Devil of darkness who was enveloped in the deep red aura of destruction—. Having turned into a dark beast, a third eye with a deep red pupil opened on Rias’s forehead. That was the combination technique of Rias and Gasper, [Forbidden Invade Balor the Princess]

In response to Rias, who had started to release an enormous aura, Bina also enveloped herself with an equal amount of aura. Both of them then leapt towards the sky as Rias’s power of destruction and Bina’s Maou-class aura started colliding with each other! Rias’s attacks while being enveloped by Gasper were explosive-like and so powerful that they easily shot down Bina’s Maou-class Devil Power. Rias’s current power had exceeded Maou-class. That being said, the fact that it drained the user’s stamina quickly meant that she had to be careful while using it. Ever since that form manifested, they had trained again and again in order to be able to lengthen the time to be in that form. Although it was far better compared to the time during the prelims…they were still unable to keep the duration of their transformation up for as long as Ise’s Dragon Deification. For that reason, fighting Bina over a long period of time would be suicidal. However, Rias felt that…her worries would be nothing but a fleeting concern. That’s because — there was despair in Bina’s huge attacks. Rias heard that something had occurred with Bina — Grayfia, during the training camp of the [Sekiryuutei of the Blazing Truth] team from the Gremory household. Despite that, Rias thought that she was simply expressing the things she had kept for herself. Bina — Grayfia must’ve been more and more worried day by day along with the tournament.

She was her sister-in-law, a family member that had helped raise her ever since she was small. Rias knew about the true side of Sirzechs Lucifer’s Queen, Grayfia Lucifuge, who always tried to show her dignity, her glamorous side, and her shine. But it t was also a fact that she was someone who got lonely easily. One day, she would not be able to contain it and would break. If it happened during her conversation with Ise, it was only a matter of time before her aura would start to get unstable like the one she was enveloping herself in right now. That’s why, as her sister-in-law, Rias thought that there’s no way other than solving it by herself. After several minutes of aura-bullet shootings, Rias’s destruction power started to completely overwhelm Bina’s attacks. Not only that, Bina’s large-sized bullet attacks were stopped due to the third eye of the dark-clothed Rias which was capable of stopping time. Rias then said to Bina, her sister-in-law.

[Ise has his own dream. That’s why he tries so hard, and almost died on several occasions. Because of that, his dream is starting to become a reality. The fact that he has become a High-class Devil too was achieved because of his honest battles and struggles.]

Rias then charged her aura and turned her Devil power into a giant sphere.

“I… I…”

Bina, who had lost her words, managed to create a sphere from her unstable aura and fired it at Rias. Rias responded by throwing her own sphere and spoke upfront. —She couldn’t contain the feelings she held towards the person before her eyes.

[…Please, dearest sister-in-law… Acknowledge Ise’s true dream… And also, sister, you too… Don’t get caught up by the fact that you are the Lucifer’s [Queen]…! If you have any problems, please count on me, father or mother! Although I might not be able to replace brother…. Still, we are — your family!]

As Bina, no, Grayfia listened to Rias’s sincere words—.

Bina’s Dragon mask was destroyed due to the shockwave caused by the collision between their demonic powers. Tears were flowing from Bina’s face—.

“…Rias, I… I…”

Rias’s aura swallowed Bina, Grayfia, her sister-in-law—. A moment later, the announcer said.

<<—Team [Sekiryuutei of the Blazing Truth]’s [Queen], Retired!>>

As Grayfia disappeared, Rias looked at the sky. She then took a deep breath and undid the combination technique with Gasper. As she changed her attention, she looked at the place where Yuuto and Ise went.

“…Yuuto, now it’s you who must express yourself.”

  1. thanks for translation ~

    so, the main point of this volume is how helpless Grafiya huh?
    i’m started to pity her and if her son came out in this volume, it’ll be epic i think

  2. well… it seems some people quite “disappointed” with the fight…
    about the fight, its understandable actually for Grayfia to be defeated like that…
    – Grayfia cannot use her true power, her signature moves, if she used it, the higher ups would know immediately since she’s so famous and well known…
    – she mentally unstable, she always become “perfect and dependable” but she still a woman who can feel sad and sorrow, moreover no one can comfort her since on the outside she viewed as “strong woman”, of course she would breakdown eventually….
    – Rias using Balor power, a GOD’s power, with her own Destruction power, she in a way, become like her brother, while her brother become humanoid Destruction, she clad herself in Balor power and Destruction armor, against unstable and restricted Grayfia, its natural that Rias can defeat Grayfia just like that….
    (just a reminder that Gasper in the future is “Super Devil”, from that statement alone showing how strong Balor power is)

    this fight is development for Grayfia, to overcome her sadness and for Rias to try become dependable little sister that her older sister can rely on.

    1. I Don’t want that Gasper becomes like Goten in DBZ and DBS who only useful for making the fusion Gotenks.

      1. Gasper in the future become one of the Teacher for issei’s Childs…
        and he’s super devil, can travel to the past or future, i don’t think he become like Goten with usefulness is just for fusion….
        and Rias probably retire after giving birth, same as her mother who previously powerful devil….

  3. Man DxD is going on an downhill ride…..even fights described in ‘Oppai dragon show’ is better then this.
    Anyway thanks for translation Leo.

      1. How the HELL is this fight ‘way better’ than Issei vs Apophis? That fight was a tooth and nail battle to the death and Issei had to use full power DxD G to beat Apophis, who competed quite well regardless. This fight was basically an unstable Grayfia getting stomped by Balor Rias. I don’t think that Rias winning was bullshit, since everything was explained logically and well. But as a fight, this Rias vs Grayfia one is NOWHERE near Issei vs Apophis.

        1. @Itachi88 No, it wasn’t.

          @A S Tooth and nail? All that happened in that battle was spamming attacks mindlessly until Apophis fell down. Even when Issei was just in CxC Apophis’ attacks didn’t so much as incapacitate him. “Using full power” is something meaningless, people being stronger does not make a battle better, neither does it being “to the death”, and if you think it does then I’ll tell you that’s an immensely childish and incorrect way of looking at things, reaching into edgy. It was a boring, monotonous, simplistic and idiotic fight, with no meaning.

          In contrast, Rias vs Grayfia at least had character into it, and stuff beyond a mindless attack spam, along with insight into the characters. That alone makes it so much better than Issei vs Apophis.

  4. That was a pretty shitty defeat indeed, talk some crap about family bonds catching her off guard then hitting her. Man, I’ve never really like Rias – she’s always been self-entitled and leeched off Issei’s achievements.

    1. Self-entitled? How? And what was leeched off from Issei’s accomplishments? She hasn’t really gotten anything from them.

      1. Rias is not stronger than Grayfia, if she is not with Gaspar, she is only an ultimate class devil not even maou class

        1. for now she’s still inferior to Grayfia, but she just lack experience… thats all…
          remember that she’s still little sister of Sirzech, she quite genius since she can create her own destruction spells, example is the Extinguished star, that spell is basically a black hole, its so strong that the higher ups forbid it to use on Rating Games, since if it got used on enemies on Rating Games, they would got annihilated completely even before the Retiring system to work, basically they Die for real….

        2. She fought in her Balor form, so obviously that’s what I was referring to, and that’s what the guy I was replying to referred to.
