Four Kingdoms Summit Arc is the 10th story arc of Kou 1 Desu Ga Isekai De Joushu Hajimemashita series and 4th and last story arc of Magia Saga. This arc illustrates the ongoing rivalry between Magia and Hybride when Urseus, now seeing Hiroto as his arch-rival since his first and humiliating defeat from the last arc, vows to avenge his defeat by hosting Four Kingdom Summit with his former teachers Cognidus and Dialogs at Regulus. While this arc further chronicling Hiroto's first meeting at the Four Kingdom Summit on Panopticus's behalf as the (temporary) Prime Minister of Hybride, it primarily contains two main stories as one with each introduces one of Hiroto's female rivals in their respective factions that will test his debate skills to the limit: The first story featuring Disgurd[LN 1] the female vampire of her Northern Clan, who is Magia's "ally" due to her bitter rivalry against Gezerkia, while the second and last story introduces Phyllis's Princess Freyas[LN 2], King Eesh's niece and heir apparent who, along with those who dissatisfied by Eesh's recent decisions lately, revives the rivalry between Hybride and Phyllis by waging a diplomatic war against the former in order to regain her kingdom's former prestige.

Prologue (Part 1)

Magia and the Northern Vampire Clan

Joshu 14 009

Nestoria meets Disgurd.

Somewhere north from Magia's capital lies a cave that housing the Northern Vampire Clan. Inside one of these tents, a vampire named Disgurd is trying her new clothes and asks the maid about her growing bust sizes and, to her joy, her maids praises her for it. Upon hearing Nestoria's arrival on Urseus behalf, Disgurd eventually meets her but a mere sight of the messenger's hair [Notes 1] displeases her. Nevertheless, Nestoria requests Disgurd for her clan's aid to help her lord and while the latter initially rejects the offer, she makes a deal with the former that she will listen to her if the guard can block her attack. Before Nestoria can even response, Disgurd draws her scimitar and attacks her without hesitation; forcing Nestoria to narrowly block the attack only to suffer a cut on her forehead, though it impresses Disgurd so much that she continues the negotiation with Nestoria. To convince Disgurd, Nestoria gives her a letter [Notes 2] and some jewelries as Urseus's "payment" for the vampires's cooperation with Magia. Rather than accepting the offer, Disgurd demands Nestoria to tell Urseus to see her himself while bring her more jewels.

Part 18

Suddenly, Hiroto smiles and whispers to Panopticus's ear about his plan which angers the Prime Minister though the latter opts to overlook this and tell the Diferente to keep this secret between them and Moldius.

When Panopticus and Hiroto arrive at Emperia, Moldius regains his vigor and tells the latter about Urseus's visit but Hiroto replies that he knew this through Panopticus's story and boldly declares that he will visit Regulus himself as Hybride's participation for the Summit, with a condition of 11 participants instead of 7 including the Prime Minister. With Hiroto's words confuses both him and his subjects[Notes 3], Moldius asks him why would he visit Regulus but his doesn't answer and smiles. Meanwhile, Sōichiro and Curele are visiting Gezerkia.

Hiroto's Visitation onto Regulus Republic

3 days later, the trio of Hiroto, Valkyria and Universtel arrive at Regulus as Hybride's representatives and their arrival stuns both Cognidus and Dialogos. While Dialogos hides behind the bookshelf, Cognidus on the other hand confronts his guests. After their introduction, Univestel pleas Cognidus to allow Moldius to bring someone with him for the summit, though the latter insists the king's participation or the summit will begins without Hybride. Hiroto then warns Cognidus that hosting a summit without considering the speaker's debate credibility [Notes 4] may have the dire consequences for everyone including Regulus, but the latter refutes that Urseus will "explain" his Sky Army during the summit. With his smile implies that he knew everything, Hiroto finds both Urseus's "Sky Army" and even his "apology" to Hybride dubious and to make sure the summit to be fair and just, he proposes that each king has to be accompanied by a "Prime Minister" while Valkyria adds that she will convince her father and Gezerkia to join the summit. Initially finding the proposal skeptical to the point wondering Hybride's chances of winning, seeing Hiroto's another smile alone eventually prompts Cognidus to reconsider and once his visitors leave his room, he tells Dialogs-who is eavesdropping the conversation the whole time- to prepare more seats for them.

Next, Hiroto plans to visit Leonidas but because Universtel refuses to join him, leaving him Valkyria to visit the prince instead. Leonidas initially pretends that he is not in his room until the messenger's words about Hiroto and Valkyria changes his mind and welcome his guests. During the meeting, the prince is so enchanted by Valkyria's beauty that he finds her interesting even though Valkyria herself find his attitude bizarre. Later, Leonidas turns to Hiroto and praises him for having an interesting "girlfriend" and even thanking them for the visit; as soon as his visitors leave his room, Leonidas anticipates their visit again. At the same time, Disgurd accepts Nestoria's "invitation" to the summit since the guard captain kneel before her despite her hatred against her.  Gezerkia on the other hand initially refuses to participate only to change her mind when Sōichiro informs her that Disgurd will attend the upcoming summit.

Even so, Urseus laughs as he views this as his best chance to crush Hiroto himself and before he and others leave, he tells the Hybride Faction to look forward the summit for the "peace" between 2 kingdoms, much to the ire of  Zeldis and Gezerkia due to his disrespect for Hiroto. As Moldius seemly content by Magia's "shaken" morale, Hiroto still worries about Hybride's disadvantage due to the hostility from both Magia and Regulus so he visits 2 more people before the summit begins: Disgurd and Eesh.

LN 14 Illus 1

Hiroto's first confrontation with Disgurd.

First, Hiroto visits the Northern Vampires faction where Disgurd is still sour over her meeting with Gezerkia, Zeldis and the Hybride Faction. Throughout their conversation, Disgurd verbally harasses[Notes 5]Hiroto with death threats and even asks him a "trick" question about her beauty. Not only Hiroto is unfazed by them to the point warns her that  her refutation will be tainted if she kills him, he also quickly answers her question by saying Gezerkia and Valkyria are prettier [Notes 6]  than her, and even advises her not to glare at people too much fas it will ages her terribly, causing Disgurd to be overwhelmed by irritation and confusion. Just as Azan stops Disgurd from further threatening their guest, Hiroto tells them about the summit, holding her hands and urges her to refrain herself in spite of him knowing her bitter rivalry with Gezerkia and leaves. Whilst Azan is so astonished by Hiroto's feat that he views his words are as sharp and powerful as a weapon, Disgurd on the other hand becomes uncharacteristically quiet because unlike Nestoria and Urseus, Hiroto wasn't afraid of her even from the beginning.

Next, he visits the Phyllis Faction and his presence surprises both Eesh and Abrahim, especially the king who holds the youngster's hands once he learns the Diferente's new position and tells him that he has yearned to meet him. As soon as both Hiroto and Eesh are chatting together, especially about Metis, Hiroto then tell the king about a surprising secret about Urseus and his schemes.

At Emperia, Raquel is accompanying Sōichiro and Curele while anticipating the summit itself but when books dropping from Sōichiro, she shivers as if there is a bad omen about Hiroto's "defeat". Meanwhile, Panopticus and Felkina are discussing Hiroto's new position but the former still finds Hybride's chances of winning are slim because Hybride will going to face all 3 enemy kingdoms at once.

With 3 kingdoms favoring the treaty, it seems Hybride is in a deadlock with everyone from Dialogos and Cognidas to Abrahim mounting their pressure onto Moldius to sign the treaty.

Part 7

Joshu 14 365

Disgurd is shocked to hear Hiroto's debate.

Suddenly, Hiroto urges Moldius not to sign the treaty while he points out many of it contradictions within the treaty-specifically the third one regarding Hybride's "possession" the vampires which he corrects as "accepting their aid" instead since he deems word such as "possessed" is rude for the vampires, to Zeldis's delight and Disgurd's bewilderment for she never heard of it. Urseus, however, insists that what he did was "right" due to other's "perception" towards the vampires until Hiroto asks him if this means that the Northern Vampires "have joined" Magia. While Disgurd angrily denies it since her "reason" to aid Magia was because the king has kowtowed to her, Urseus enforces her claim by explaining that both Magia and Northern Vampires are just allies only for him to be criticized by Hiroto for his contradiction earlier, causing the vampires (Zeldis, Gezerkia and even Disgurd) to laugh as the Red-Haired Vampire silently calls her rival an illiterate fool for underestimating the humans.

Part 18

To add his insult onto Hybride, Urseus intentionally mispronounces Hiroto's position while taunting Hybride by asking a mocking question about it's "preference" for war over peace, seemly rendering Hiroto speechless that prompts everyone to assume his to everyone's assumption about his apparent defeat.

Part 19

Instead, Hiroto smiles and shrugs off Urseus's taunt as petty provocation and begins his counterargument: Given what Magia did to Hybride weeks ago, Hiroto deems Magia untrustworthy because he doubts Urseus's desire for "peace" was sincere due to him resorted to use shady schemes to achieve his ambition. Urseus refutes by claiming that he had "repented" from his "naivety" but ends up triggered by Hiroto's sarcastic question about his "repentance"[Notes 7] and he makes a wrong move by refuting a wrong rebuttal that actually helping Hybride-casuing him to rervously asks Hybride to remove one of its "shields". When Hiroto calims Magia was using the vampires as "spears" to attack Hybride, Zalia provokes him by brings up Hybride Vampire's "terror" onto Babylos and blames him for it, only for her and Disgurd being rendered speechless by Zeldis's scolding for not knowing the truth behind the Babylos incident while endorsing the Northern Vampires' attack onto Emperia.

Even so, Cognidas insists Hybride to remove its "shields" for the sake of "peace" only to be questioned by Hiroto if this really gurantee the "peace" everyone sought for. When Dialogos asks him if this means Hybride will keep its "shields", Hiroto explains that while removing them may "satisfies" the first three kingdoms, Hybride will be humilliated and people such as Leonidas and Hybride elves will seek retribution through war. As Urseus initially ridicules Hiroto for his "vivid imagination", he[Notes 8][LN 3] and others (specifically Cognidas[Notes 9] and Dialogos) are completely staggered to learn Diferente's second visit onto Leonidas when he citing the prince's quote about crushing all enemies by any means necessary, as well as his warning about a potential elven revolt[Notes 10] that will doom all 4 kingdoms if Hybride signs this treaty. Unable to find any flaws within Hiroto's debate, both Cognadus and Dialogos have to postpone the meeting that severely lowers Urseus's momentum in spite of his resistance[Notes 11], to Moldius's relief; to make things even interesting, Eesh makes a suprising move by supporting Hiroto while hushing Abrahim from utter even a word. To conclude the summit, Hiroto suggests to discuss the Sky Army in another day and when Urseus insists to continue the debat, Cognidas immediately accept the Diferente's suggestion and stops Urseus out of his recognition for the Diferente's value to the senate[Notes 12], much to Eesh's satisfaction. Therefore, Hybride wins the first summit and as celebration, Regulus is holding a banquet in the evening.

Epilogue (Part 1)

The Banquet for Hiroto

During the banquet, almost every noblemen except Magia Faction[Notes 13] meet Hiroto who tells both Eesh and Cognadus to visit Hybride someday. As Gezerkia is talking with Moldius, Disgurd [Notes 14]chats with Zeldis regarding his trust for the humans and when the latter replies that all of this was due to his meeting with Hiroto, causes her to fell so envy for both Zeldis and Gezerkia's friendship with such amazing ally that she dubs Hiroto as an "unbreakable sword". Urseus and Zalia, meanwhile, fell bitter about their defeat to Hiroto as the king woefully laments his inability to foresee his archrival despite his best schemes[Notes 15][LN 3], but Zalia remains confident that her king will avenge his humilliation someday. Meanwhile, Cognidus is so astonished by Hiroto's caliber and charisma that he not only commends Hybride for having its champion, but also considers him as a core to the peace of all 4 kingdoms. At the same time, Moldius thanking Eesh for rejecting Urseus's "peace" proposal, of which seemly eases Germesh's punishment.

Returning to Respective Hometown

2 days later, Eesh and Abrahim are returning to Phyllis via his carriage. While the king is so satisfied to meet Hiroto in person that he yearns to appoint to have the Diferente as his prime minister, Abrahim on the other hand feels unhappy for some reason.

The following aftermath of Luluk incident, Aden's Spiritual Light is finally restored and the residents give some food to the Skeleton Tribe as their tribute after hearing Hiroto about the aforementioned incident. 2 days later, Disgurd visits both Slara and a recovering Luluk and she is so moved by the duo's conversation about Hiroto that she orders Azan to gather everyone for their attack onto Magia, joined by Zeldis and Gezerkia who also wish to avenge Luluk's injuries sake.

However despite the vampires cahsitises him for Aden soldiers' atrocious act onto Luluk the little vampire from an opposing faction, Urseus denies anything and calls the Northern Vampires out for breaching their agreement with Magia instead, causing their argument quickly turns violent when both sides prepare for a bloody battle. To everyone's surprise, Lagos arrives just in time to pacify the situation and begs the vampires to forgive Urseus and even willing to sacrifice himself as Magia's atonement when he learns from Azan about Lulik's vicious beatdown. While Disgurd may changes her mind and forgives Ursues out of Lagos's sincerity, she further warns the king not to seek the Northern Vampires for help again,adn then also threaten him that she will kill him if Magia repeat this mistake again. Moved by Lagos's timely rescue, Urseus plans to make him as a prime minister again.

Story Impact

  • Throughout the entire arc itself, the trio of Magia, Regulus and even Phyllis try but fail to defeat Hybride despite various schemes orchestrated by Urseus, Abrahim and Freyas.
  • Regulus's antagonistic views against the vampires are explained due to the relationship Cognidus and Urseus as former teacher and student, mostly due to the former's strong faith for the young king's capability in ruling the entire continent until he gained Disgurd, a vampire, as his ally to crush Hybride. Its only until Hiroto's presentation during the Four Kingdoms Summit seemly dispels its antagonism against the vampires as Cognidus recognizes Hiroto's true prowess.
  • The entire arc also introduces Hiroto's 2 female rivals such as Disgurd and Freyas: both are Hiroto's enemies in separate occasions who antagonized him only to be humbled by Hiroto's prowess.
    • Disgurd is introduced as Gezerkia's bitter rival and Hiroto's enemy alongside Urseus and Cognadus and Dialogs. Unlike Zeldis and Gezerkia, Disgurd distrusts and belittles humans since she views them as inferior beings and even manipulating their fear for the vampires as her advantages, with Urseus's compromise as one of these examples. While her first interaction with Hiroto and her witnesses of his debates does changes her mind about Diferente, it is only he still distrust him until she witnesses his interaction with a badly beaten Luluk mellows her heart and opens her mind a bit.
    • Freyas is introduced as the Princess of Phyllis who is renowned as Eesh's niece and heir apparent. From archery to sharpness and bravery in battlefield, she is beloved by many generals in her home kingdom but at the same time, she is also a stubborn and overconfident princess who refuses to listen advises. Sadly, not even her best abilities can topples Hiroto's cunning due to his own credibility of overturning even her advantages.Even so, this only escalates her rivalry with Hiroto as she vows to avenge her humilliation someday.
  • Whilst making a minor yet crucial cameo appearance from the last arc, Leonidas is properly introduced as the Prince of Hybride and Moldius's son and heir apparent. Unlike his father, however, Leonidas is a lecherous prince who spends most of his time wooing women and cares little about politics even when Hybride is in danger; not helping matters is that Hiroto's second visit displays Leonidas's true personality as a brutal prince who practice brutality to crush his enemies in spite of his odd friendship with the Diferente and allies (especially vampires such as Valkyria and Curele)-making him a wild card in the series.
  • The aftermath of Hiroto's victory Four Kingdoms Summit impacts all 4 kingdoms respectively,
    • Disgurd fells envy for both Zeldis and Gezerkia to have Hiroto-the only human who isn't shaken by even her deadly threats-as their ally, especially after witnessing his debate enabled him turn against all odds despite Magia-Regulus's vicious schemes against him. Since then, she begrudgingly befriends with Gezerkia in order to get close with Hiroto, making her as one of may Hiroto's allies.
    • Since the last arc, Urseus is humbled by Hiroto twice in 2 Summits despite his schemes. In fact, all of these defeat only add Magia's (which extends to Zalia) bitter grudge against Hiroto.
    • Cognidus begins to observe Hiroto due to his astonishing charisma and incredible caliber that prompts him to see him as an important figure to not just Hybride, but also within the continent itself.
    • Whereas Eesh seemly consented to see Hiroto's caliber in person, Abrahim other hand is less impressed by the Summit as he now viewing his king as senile for losing his chances in proving Phyllis's prominence without Hybride's influence. This leads to Abrahim's desperation as he resorts to seek both Urseus and Freyas[Notes 16] to defeat Hiroto, even going so far to betray Eesh to do. Alas, Abrahim's latest failure ultimately costs his Prime Minister position when Eesh replaces him with Djoser the newcomer out of his anger for his betrayal. [LN 4].
  • Luluk's vicious beatdown by Aden soldiers that led to the Vampires' attack onto Bahram bring significant impact to the continent.
    • Disgurd and the Northern Vampires are especially livid to hear this news and allying themselves with Hybride Vampires to avenge Luluk by not only killing those who were responsible to his injury, but also attack Bahram and cut their ties with Urseus for good.
    • Both Disgurd and Gezerkia eventually bury their longtime rivalry after their attack onto Bahram.
    • This, however, also garners the attention to the citizens of both Agnika and Gassel of the West and it increases their fears and hostility towards the vampires.
  • Freyas's first defeat by Hiroto has shaken the entire continent, especially for Phyllis

Trivia

(TO be added...)

Notes

  1. Due to her rivalry against Gezerkia, Disgurd hates anything that is colored red, from hair to even jewelries. In fact, her initial hostility against Nestoria was due to the latter's hair color that is similar to Gezerkia.
  2. Whilst vampire are illiterate creatures, only a handful of them, especially the adjutants and advisers, can read and write. Disgurd, unlike Zeldis and Gezerkia, is one of those illiterate vampire as she doesn't even bother to read the letter, so she have her subordinate to read on her behalf.
  3. With the exception of Moldius and Panopticus, Univestel and Sobrinus are anxious over Urseus's visit while Finnath is displeased to see Hiroto over the vampires issue. Hiroto's shocking plan only makes Finnath scoffs Hiroto as an "idiot".
  4. As far as Hiroto is concerned, Urseus may take advantage onto Moldius's weakness during the meeting and humiliating him on the spot, making him angry in the progress. According to Hiroto himself, Moldius's grudge against Urseus not only affecting both Hybride and Magia, but Regulus as well for it will receive Hybride Elves' complain for the rigged meeting.
  5. Part of her hostility was because she assumed that Hiroto is no different than any human she despised and thought his bravery as a "farce", so she tried to intimidate him. To her surprise though, Hiroto doesn't even flinched because he knows well that this was all but a tease for he warns her that killing him will only staining her position as the member of the alliance, garnering her ire.
  6. The reason why he says Gezerkia as a pretty vampire than Disgurd is because she is both his ally and also an elder sister figure to him, which only irritates Disgurd even more.
  7. According to Hiroto, the king himself only "repented" when he finally obtained Northern Vampires as his allies and continued his obsession to crush Hybride through this-something Hiroto himself deemed even more immature using that word to call the king out for his hypocrisy and contradiction.
  8. The irony is that even as Leonidas' former fellow student, Urseus has underestimated the prince true personalty since he only saw his lecherous side and never expect him to care politics prior to his meeting with Hiroto.
  9. As much as he denies any possibility of Leonidas's possible war Hybride elves's could-be revolt, every solution Cognadus could've think of only ends up enforcing Hiroto's warning. In fact, by recalling Leonidas's lecherousness hides his hidden genius that not even Urseus can comprehend, Cognidas realizes that his support for Urseus has ironically putting Regulus and any kingdoms in danger, just like Hiroto said.
  10. According Hiroto, most of Hybride's elves depends the vampires for both air mails and their protection for safety. With the vampires being removed, however, Hybride elves begin to blame both Magia and Regulus for it because of their increasing distrust the latter for forsaking them. What worries Hiroto the most is the consequence of the elven rebellion will horribly impacting the 3 kingdoms (Hybride, Magia and Regulus): With Regulus's influence will be severely weaken due to Hybride elves's distrust, there wouldn't be other kingdoms capable to stop the war between Hybride and Magia and those who try to even antagonize Leonidas will only make the situation worse for all 4 kingdoms.
  11. In his last stand, Urseus insists on removing the vampires as he fears that Hybride will attack Magia regardless since Leonidas possesses such powerful and deadly forces, only to be rendered silent by Hiroto's rebuke again for the latter says that the only reason why Hybride didn't invade Magia (yet) is because Regulus didn't remove the vampires from Hybride out of fear of receiving Hybride's elves' wrath and distrust for it.
  12. According to Cognadus, any discussion can be viewed as value to the senate means a serious discussion, something that is cannot be refuted even by the king. This is the reason why Cognadus denies even his longtime protege in spite of the king's critique for siding with his nemesis.
  13. Even before this banquet, Urseus was so confident in beating Hiroto that he assume that everybody will talk to him after his "victory" in this summit. Sadly, his 2nd failure only makes Hiroto even more famous as the crowd focus onto the Diferente while Magia Faction have been left out from the banquet.
  14. Regulus's banquet was Disgurd' first time to participate the human's party. In addition, behind the facade of her haughtiness masking her insecurity since she, unlike Zeldis and even Gezerkia, hasn't used to be with the humans.
  15. One of Urseus biggest regret is that he never expected Hiroto to meet Leonidas of all people-whom he assumed as a lecherous prince whose only goal was to wooing women-to change the tide, as well as using Hybride elves to persuade even his longtime mentor Cognadus. Therefore, Urseus views Hiroto as the most dangerous rival and his hostility against him increases.
  16. For Freyas's case, Abrahim thinks she is Phyllis's only hope to regain its former its glory without under Hybride's "manipulation". The notable reason for this is because the princess herself is popular in her kingdom, especially to many Phyllis military personnel (barring Gardel due to his skepticism about her) not only due to her prowess in archery, but also her sharp senses and charisma that surpasses even her royal uncle. The only against her is that Eesh refuses to let her participate the summit is because he knows Freyas' main weakness: stubbornness and overconfidence.
