e ornate hairpin fixing up my hair would act as a key to the world called the Underworld, and that there seemed to be strong enemies in the Underworld.

「To get through the Underworld, I know I’m not enough by myself.
I think that I would absolutely need Kohaku’s help.」

「…..Haha, you are the light that pierced through the muddy darkness clouding my path.
The dream that I had given up on, to think that I could see it again.」

While Kohaku said that, she tilted her head down, a bit of a smile on her face.

「For now, this, the power of the strongest kijin, shall I entrust to you.
For the purpose of releasing Kishin-sama from her seal.」

「Yeah, me too.
To make Kohaku’s dream to come true, and for my own goals, I’ll do my best.」

What was important were the mutual benefits involved.
Rather than doing free volunteer work, this was a contract we could both believe in.

The promise exchanged between me and Kohaku, it was that kind of thing.

After all, it had only been a few hours since we had officially met each other.

After this, could I have a bit of your time?」

「I’m totally fine with that, but what’s the matter?」

After paying the tab, and before leaving, Kohaku called out to me.

「Sukuna, you have the《Unarmed Combat》 skill, right? I was thinking of teaching you the 《Dance of the Oni (Oni no Mai)》 」

「Oni no Mai?」

Hearing my curiosity, Kohaku had a fierce smile as she said this:

「It’s what Kishin-sama left behind, a martial art that only kijin can handle.」

「Phew…..it kind of feels like every day is just too eventful…..」

Several hours later.

After a severe training session with Kohaku, I finished gaming and returned to reality.

Rin-chan was still playing.
I considered making some meals, but I was kind of incapable of making any professional meals.

「That’s right, let’s take a look at the BBS.」

Since I had nothing to do for a while, I decided to open the official BBS of WLO.

As long as you had your player ID you could take a look at it from any device.
Of course, you could look at it while inside the game, but that feature was limited only to safe zones like towns.

As for why I decided to take a look, it was because actually, the whole time I was talking with Kohaku, I hadn’t stopped streaming.

Obviously the number of comments decreased as I stopped responding, but there were more watchers compared to when I had first entered the Forest of Magic, and my stream had even entered the Top 10 category of stream rankings.

Since I figured that information would be leaked eventually, I thought I might as well just share the info.

「Let’s see, kijin……ah, found it, I found it, the exclusive BBS.」

There were a lot racial options in WLO, but the ratio of humans to the other races was 40%, which was extremely unbalanced.

The remaining percentages were distributed like this: 30% beastkin, 10% elf, and the last 20% were all the other races combined.
This was because of how specialized the abilities of races other than elves, beastkin, and humans were.

For example, whereas kijin are biased towards physical stats, fairies specialized in magic.
Dwarves, on the other hand, were the best at smithing amongst the crafter races, and halflings were better with handicrafts.

Because your playstyle would become rather limited the moment you chose one of those kinds of races, a lot of people chose the three races that had more freedom.

By the way, although I lumped them together into the beastkin group, there was a wide variety of animals to choose from and they were actually considered different races.
This was one of the reasons why demihumans had such large numbers.

Now then, what I was trying to say was this.

That the number of kijin players didn’t even amount to 5% of the total player population of WLO.
They were a minority even amongst its minority races.

Since there weren’t many people who played as them, then there would be something like an exclusive BBS for them.

「Ahaaー…..as I thought.」

It was as expected.

The kijin-exclusive thread was really getting fired up over the contents of my stream.

Around the time I met Kohaku, the number of posts had significantly increased, so that was likely what they were talking about.

「Ah, this kind of cliche sure is interesting.」

To me, who hadn’t really been on a BBS before, even before I went through its contents my attention was grabbed by its layout and style.
Before sharing my first post, I spent thirty minutes on it.
