I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 36.2

Art of Yin-Yang and Five Elements. A spell that first appeared in the second installment of Exorcism, it has the effect of amplifying the power of nature-type spells.

Since the Fire Demon had the most powerful means of attack among the current party members, it was the best method at this point.


The spell I had deployed was embedded in the talisman, and I quietly signaled the Fire Demon.

“Shall we burn it?”


Accordingly, the Fire Demon’s eyes turned red like before.

It had activated its own trait to bring out its maximum firepower.



Magical power surged from the Fire Demon’s whole body, and I began to feel intense heat.

「𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙚𝙣𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝.」

After I devoured all the vengeful spirits, two major changes occurred in the Fire Demon.

One was that it was freed from the vengeful spirits’ anger and regained its sanity.

And the second was that it achieved a trait change, which was an exceptional case.

▶【Cleansing Fire (S-)】

「𝙄𝙩’𝙨 𝙘𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙩 𝙝𝙖𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙊𝙣𝙞𝙗𝙞 𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙞𝙩, 𝙬𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙝 𝙬𝙖𝙨 𝘼+ 𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙠, 𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙞𝙩 𝙬𝙖𝙨 𝙛𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙢𝙚.」

It had changed to the Cleansing Fire trait, which was one rank higher.

Perhaps, if Yoo Ha-on hadn’t subdued it in the original story, it might have gained the same trait.

「𝙄 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝘾𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙣𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙁𝙞𝙧𝙚.」

It’s the trait that the fox spirit from the third installment of Exorcism had.

It was a pretty overpowered trait, so I tried hard to get it, but there was no way in the game.

So I thought it was a trait that only special beings like spirits or magical beasts could use.

「. . .𝙄𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙡𝙙, 𝙄 𝙘𝙖𝙣’𝙩 𝙗𝙚 𝙨𝙪𝙧𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙄 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬 𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙨.」

In any case, Cleansing Fire was an excellent trait in terms of both rank and ability.

As the name suggests, it is particularly effective against yokai and forbidden arts.

“Burn it.”


Eventually, the intense flames that were shot out struck the Cow Headed Demon’s whole body, which had not yet fully regained its senses.

The heat was so intense that it felt like the entire underground cave was getting hot.

The Cow Headed Demon, hit directly by it, let out a terrible scream.


The smell of burning flesh and the acrid smoke, it was a grotesque sight, but I didn’t look away. The battle wasn’t over yet.

“K, aaak!”

Despite its whole body being on fire, the Cow Headed Demon charged at us in that state and attempted a final attack.

It had broken free from the illusion because we had struck it first.

“Thought Fox.”



It seemed tired because it had used all its strength against the Fire Demon earlier, but it couldn’t be helped.

“Help me just one more time.”

The Cow Headed Demon was charging straight at us, and as Thought Fox sent out its telepathic message, I once again drew on some of the absorbed spirits and raised my spiritual power.




“Azure Sky Wall.”

The intermediate defensive spell, Azure Sky Wall, which I had never succeeded in casting before.



It was perfectly blocked by the Cow Headed Demon’s charge along with the hand seal, and the Fire Demon, who had taken the rear as instructed, fired the final blow.

“Burn it.”



“Kua, aaak!”

With a hoarse scream, the Cow Headed Demon finally collapsed its huge body on the ground.


There was a moment of crisis, but in the end, our victory was confirmed.

“. . .We won.”

At the same time, an urgent shout was heard from above ground.

“Hey guys! Ugh, if you can hear me, answer me right now!”

It was Seo Ji-hye. Judging from the liveliness in her voice, it seemed that she had finished some emergency treatment on herself.

Cheong Juhwa smiled slyly as she looked at Seo Ji-hye.

Like that, we escaped the dark underground and returned to the surface.



There were no more dangerous moments after that.

Judging that we couldn’t fight anymore, we returned to the Defense Corps, and around that time, we received word that the Red Oni that had escaped had been subdued.

It was finally the moment when the series of incidents came to an end.


“We’re lucky that we didn’t have any casualties, but the atmosphere over there is like a funeral home.”

Seo Ji-hye muttered as she sipped her tea the day after the so-called Red Oni incident.

“Was the damage that bad?”

“Are you kidding me? More than a dozen exorcists died.”

That was the most damage in the past two years.

Yoo Ji-tae, who was passing by behind Seo Ji-hye, who was sighing, grabbed her head.


“Ugh! Why are you doing that all of a sudden?”

“I’m just telling you not to lose your energy since you won’t have anything to do for the next day or two.”


Technically speaking, Seo Ji-hye is still a newbie here. Yoo Ji-tae spoke to us who were watching the scene.

“I heard you did a great job? It turned out to be the best move to send you to the patrol unit.”

“You’re trying to gloss over it again. This is the first time I’ve ever had such a fierce fight in my life.”

As Cheong Juhwa grumbled playfully, Yoo Ji-tae continued speaking with a chuckle.

“Well, it’s not something you can just gloss over. By the way, the team leader saw it.”

There was only one person here that Yoo Ji-tae would call the team leader. It was Cheong Ji-yeon.

We had a short conversation and headed to Cheong Ji-yeon before the end of the internship.

Knock, knock.

“Can we come in?”

“Of course.”



Cheong Ji-yeon, who came into view, was lying on a chair with a towel over her face.

She must have been very busy with the aftermath of the incident.

Cheong Ji-yeon opened her mouth with a tired expression, moving the towel aside.

“Just two academy students defeated a presumed B-rank entity. . . . . . .”

There are often students who can subdue C-rank yokai.

However, if it’s B-rank, that’s a completely different story. Until now, those who had done such a thing had all become 1st-grade exorcists or higher and made a name for themselves in the world.

“I even heard there were two of them.”

“I almost died because of that.”

As Cheong Juhwa grumbled, Cheong Ji-yeon smiled slyly and continued speaking.

“I’ve heard a lot about you since I’m also a member of the Cheong family.”

“. . . . . . .”

“I’ve thought about it several times, but those guys are really blind.”

It was the same as acknowledging Cheong Juhwa. Cheong Juhwa, who was slightly surprised by that, was asked a question.

“What do you think of the current Cheong family?”

“. . . . . . .”

Cheong Juhwa seemed to be thinking for a moment, but her answer was simple.

“I don’t have any special thoughts. I’m just going to live the way I want to from now on.”

At those words, Cheong Ji-yeon burst out laughing. Then she threw a small box containing something to Cheong Juhwa.



“It’s Blue Jade. I’m sure you’ll know how to use it well.”

“. . .Can I really have something this expensive?”

“It’s not expensive to me. You can go now that we’re done talking.”


After that, Cheong Juhwa left the room as if she had been kicked out.

With that, only Cheong Ji-yeon and I were left in the small room.
