In this Novel, Rias meets a junior high student—a beautiful descendant of Miyamoto Musashi!

This is the story that began just after Issei, Rias and her friends won the rating game against Saira Aug Baal.

Miyamoto Zekka. A descendant of Musashi Miyamoto, she had been swept away by the …… sword her whole life.
The source of this is the sword ‘Tensei’, which she has had since childhood.
This sword has a will and takes power from the chests of her enemies. And ……

It was a tit-loving sword that nurtured Zekka’s breasts and turned them into strength!

As a child, Zekka aimed to become the strongest swordsman together with ‘Tensei’ and gained exceptional sword skills.
If she became strong, she could become popular. She believed that if she became stronger, she would become popular and have many friends.

But …… reality was different. The stronger she became, the lonelier she became.
This is not the Warring States period. Even if your sword is strong, you can’t gain youth.

‘I hate boobs! I just want to be a normal girl and have friends!”

After learning that the ‘Tensei’ is a weapon called a sacred weapon, Zekka knocks on the door of Komao Academy Junior High to find out more about the mystery and make friends!

And then she meets …… the red-haired demon Rias Gremory.

Surrounded by funny seniors and classmates, and with a reputation for swordsmanship, Zekka lives out her youth at Komaou Academy in this new “DxD” story!
