I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 70.2

After Yoo Hye-yeon’s attack on the academy using voodoo seed, the academy was closed for a few days to repair the damaged facilities and reorganize the staff.

Naturally, it became a big topic of conversation, but surprisingly, the reaction was not as bad as it had been after the Yeongwol Island incident.

In the first place, the main problem was the mistake made by the exorcism headquarters in letting a prisoner who should have been sent to a special prison escape, and the atmosphere was rather one of praising the academy’s ability to resolve the incident without any major damage, despite the scale of the incident.

The students also gained a sense of real combat experience and confidence through the incident, so it could be said that the overall outcome was not too bad.

However, Yoo Hye-jin, who had recently become the new dean of the academy, seemed to think differently.

“I plan to step down as dean soon.”

These were the words that Yoo Hye-jin spoke to me, whom she had called through Baek Ji-eun, the day before classes resumed.

“Why is that?”

“Student Han Kang-yoon might have noticed, but I actually guessed part of my sister’s plan. Of course, I had no idea about the escape.”

When I listened to her words without responding, Yoo Hye-jin opened her mouth again to continue the conversation.

“Even if there were casualties, I thought it would be an ending that both of us could accept.”

“That was a dangerous thought.”

“Yes. It was definitely a mistake.”

Yoo Hye-jin stood up and walked to the sunny window. She turned her head slightly and smiled bitterly.

“I changed my mind after hearing your report, Student Kang Yoon, but in the end, I can’t deny that I had such intentions. As the dean, I am disqualified.”

“. . . . . . .”

I seemed to understand what Yoo Hye-jin was trying to say.

She wasn’t wrong. In the end, there were no problems, but she had clearly harbored thoughts that could have put the students in danger.

I pondered for a moment before responding to Yoo Hye-jin.

“If you have decided that on your own, I don’t think I have anything else to say.”


“To be honest, I don’t think there is anyone in the academy who is more qualified to be the dean than you, Vice Dean.”

“That’s something you could probably find anywhere, if you looked hard enough.”

“You know that’s not true, even if you say that. That you yourself are capable.”

Even if she had made preparations in advance, it is not easy to so easily thwart the plans of someone like Yoo Hye-yeon.

The fact that it happened just one day after the decision was made proved that Yoo Hye-jin’s ability was nothing short of proven.

「𝘽𝙚𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙨, 𝙔𝙤𝙤 𝙃𝙮𝙚-𝙟𝙞𝙣 𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙝𝙖𝙨 𝙖 𝙡𝙤𝙩 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙙𝙤 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙮.」

So it would be difficult if she suddenly retired here. This was my personal circumstance.

“. . . To be honest, I didn’t think you would answer like that.”

“If it had actually been implemented, I wouldn’t have thought of defending it, but anyway, you changed your mind in the end.”

“Even so, there must be someone better than me. . . . . . .”

She definitely didn’t seem like this kind of person, but she was being surprisingly stubborn. Feeling frustrated, I decided to be frank and honest with her.

“Then, should we leave it to teacher Baek Ji-eun?”

“. . . . . . .”

“Or, if not her, then teacher Choi Do-won?”

Yoo Hye-jin must have known it too. That there was actually no one more suited to the position of dean than her.

“. . . If you put it that way, I don’t really have anything to say. Aren’t you being a little too harsh in your evaluation of the teachers?”

“I’m simply judging them based on their aptitude.”

In the end, Yoo Hye-jin grinned and sat down again, opening her mouth.

“Did you know? I’m not the type to change my mind easily, but this is already the second time recently.”

“Isn’t that okay? A flexible mindset is somewhat essential.”

“Then, I guess I’ll try to fulfill my responsibilities until someone else suitable comes along.”

And so, Yoo Hye-jin officially became the dean of the academy.

The assassination of the dean chapter in Chapter 2 of the story had finally come to an end.



I had expected it to some extent since I had activated the 2nd phase of Shadow Assimilation, but once again, big and small changes happened to me.



【Han Kang-yoon】

▶Level 36

▶Ability Scores

【Stamina: C+】

【Spiritual power : B】

【Spellcraft: B-】

【Mental Strength: A-】

▶Traits (5/10)

【Shadow Assimilation(S)】

【Spirit Absorption(A)】


【Mental Spellbook(B)】

【Revived Person(B-)】

First of all, the spiritual power ability score, which had been B-minus, rose to a full B, and similarly, mental strength also rose from B-plus to A-minus.

Also, after this battle, my level went up by one more to 36.

Now, even my simple ability scores are not much different from those of the top students in the second year.

「𝘼𝙣𝙙, 𝙖𝙨 𝙚𝙭𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙙, 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙎𝙝𝙖𝙙𝙤𝙬 𝘼𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙞𝙩. . . . . . .」

The size of the shadow inside decreased because of the power consumption in the 2nd phase, and the boundary between the physical body and the shadow became even more blurred. Now, even if I just slightly draw out spiritual power, a rippling shadow would mix in.

It was a joke, but I somehow feel like I’m gradually becoming something other than human.

「𝙀𝙫𝙚𝙣 𝙎𝙝𝙖𝙙𝙤𝙬𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙬𝙖𝙨𝙣’𝙩 𝙖𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙗𝙮 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙎𝙝𝙖𝙙𝙤𝙬 𝘼𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙞𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙚𝙭𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙩.」

I don’t know for sure, but it seemed that my case was special after all.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙬𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙣𝙤 𝙗𝙖𝙙 𝙨𝙞𝙜𝙣𝙨, 𝙨𝙤 𝙄 𝙜𝙪𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙞𝙩 𝙙𝙤𝙚𝙨𝙣’𝙩 𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧.」

Like that, the break ended and we finally returned to our daily lives at the academy.

And then,

“Do you know what next week is?”

“We had a break, so I guess it’ll be postponed by that much. . . . . . .”

“Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. It’s not like anything changes even if you postpone it, anyway.”

At the meaningful smile of the homeroom teacher, Baek Ji-eun, the students either sighed or stared blankly ahead.

“Everyone, forget about the sweet break and prepare for the exams diligently.”

The comprehensive evaluation exam for the second semester of the second year was just around the corner.
