Central calendar Year 1639, Month 4, Day 22.
Qua-Toyne Principality Government Council
Gim fell into the Louria Kingdom’s hands. Furthermore, there was also the catastrophic disaster where most of its citizens were slaughtered. The Government Council was wrapped in a gloomy atmosphere of the likes it never had seen before.
「Report the current situation.」
The Prime Minister Kanata ordered and so the cold-sweat-bathed Military Minister answered.
「Yes, Your Excellency…… Currently, all of the land west of Gim, has fallen into the Louria Kingdom’s control. Even the advance force was more than 30,000 men strong, and according to information from the Intelligence Bureau, the total force will reach 500,000. Furthermore, we have unidentified information that they have received military support from the Papardia Empire, and in fact, this time they had provided 500 Wyverns. In addition, there are reports of a fleet of over 4,000 ships departing from the port.」
It was unbelievable. Everyone had their breaths taken away as they repeated that information in their heads. The figure of 500,000 men was ten times the total military force that Qua-Toyne had, even after throwing in the reserve troops. Moreover, the 500 wyverns and the sea force of over 4,000 ships.
The Louria Kingdom was seriously attempting to seize this country. And Qua-Toyne had no power at all to defend against them.
The meeting room was tucked into silence at that great despair.
At that time, the Foreign Minister raised his hand.
「Prime Minister, may I have a word?」
「…… What? Is there still something else?」
Was there yet another thing else to overrun us even more than this? Kanata, who already given up, prompted the Foreign Minister to speak.
「Actually, just before this Council meeting was started, there was a message from the Japanese embassy……」
「And the contents?」
「Yes, I will read the full text: 『The Japanese Government cannot overlook the inhuman acts caused by the armed insurgents that occurred in Gim, a city of Qua-Toyne. We request the Qua-Toyne government to control the armed insurgents completely. Furthermore, if Qua-Tyne Government requests, then the Japanese government is prepared to dispatch the Self-Defense Force to Qua-Toyne in order to eliminate the armed insurgents.』」
「Armor insurgents? Did they mean that they will send reinforcements?」
「I think that this is a roundabout expression, but I believe that they will send reinforcements if we request it. Because they are forbidden to solve state conflicts through armed forces by their constitution, although this might be a bit forced, they didn’t identify the Lourian Army as an army, but as armed insurgents. Just like the Quila Kingdom, since their food self-sufficiency rate seems to be low, it appears that they will be troubled if the exports from our country stopped.」
The peaceful dawn was rising in the abyss of despair.
Light was lit in the eyes of every Council member, as they regained their spirits.
「Good! Immediately send a request to Japan for reinforcements to eliminate the armed insurgents! Please convey that we will also prepare the food for the reinforcements. Furthermore, until the elimination of the armed insurgents, we will grant freedom of movement in our land, air and water territories. Then, the Military Minister! Please inform the entire Knight Order and the Dragoon Squadrons to fully cooperate with Japan!」
「Yes, Your Excellency! By your command!」
On a certain internet bulletin board, there were various discussion threads that were created in the events of the current transferring of Japan into a different world. On one such bulletin board……
The SDF has been summoned to the Fantasy World Part 170 「Reposting is Prohibited」
154: Anonymous who Sees and Touches the Anonymous Creator 2015/4/23 (Thu) 23:06:31
There are many stories where the SDF go to the other world had been created in this place, but with the current Japan’s transfer, it looks like that the SDF will really fight against another country. My chest is fraught with emotions
167: Anonymous who Sees and Touches the Anonymous Creator 2015/4/23 (Thu) 23:12:44
It had been some time since the transfer, but until now I still can’t believe about the transfer. It like having a very long dream.
182: Anonymous who Sees and Touches the Anonymous Creator 2015/4/23 (Thu) 23:23:24
Since we are already in the fantasy world, will the meaning of this bulletin board’s existence disappear?
Or will it be very important?
199: Anonymous who Sees and Touches the Anonymous Creator 2015/4/23 (Thu) 23:44:01
From now on, will we reading novels that record the SDF’s activity, not as a fiction, but as nonfiction?
300: Anonymous who Sees and Touches the Anonymous Creator 2015/4/24 (Fri) 02:11:03
If it is nonfiction, what will the title be?
Since the entire country of Japan was transferred, then how about 「Japan’s Great Transfer」
301: Anonymous who Sees and Touches the Anonymous Creator 2015/4/24 (Fri) 02:11:03
↑ Wouldn’t 「Japan’s Summons」 sound better?
303: Anonymous who Sees and Touches the Anonymous Creator 2015/4/24 (Fri) 02:18:02
If it is called 「Japan’s Summon」, then that mean there someone is summoning it. To summon a whole country, must be an act of God.

However, if the SDF can’t stop the Louria Kingdom’s invasion of the Qua-Toyne Principality, then there would be many deaths that would occur in our country. Magic seems to exist in this world, so what we should do if there is a strong magic that we cannot handle?
I wonder if we can really win. If it doesn’t end well, perhaps I, who lives in the center of the city, will die……
Even in Japan, the activities of the SDF to counter the Louria Kingdom, the first dispatch in the New World, were being watched as an event of high concern by the public.
Central calendar Year 1639, Month 4, Day 25. Maihark Port
Finally the information that a fleet of over 4,000 ships departing from the Louria Kingdom was conveyed and the Qua-Toyne Principality Navy’s 2nd Fleet, which was based in the Maihark Port, gathered its ships.
Each ship folded their sails and prepared for the upcoming battle. The sailors inspected the ladders for raiding the enemy ships and loaded the fire arrows and the ignition oil into the ships one after another.
The wooden shields to ward arrows were placed at regular intervals on the deck, and large ballistas were deployed beside the ship.
The number of ships numbered at 50.
「What a magnificent scenery.」
Admiral Pancare was looking at the sea where a line of military ships lined up.
「But the enemy is a large fleet of more than 4,000 ships…… How many of these will survive……?」
He revealed his honest opinion. In front of an overwhelming number, a sense of insignificance filled his heart.
「Admiral, we received a message from the Navy Headquarters.」
The young officer, Bruay ran toward him and reported.
「So it comes. Read it.」
「Yes Sir! 『In the evening today, a destroyer fleet of 8 ships from Japan will arrive on Maihark offshore as reinforcements. Since they will attack the Lourian Fleet before our force, we instruct one officer to board the flagship as observer officer.』…… That’s all.」
「What? It’s only 8 ships!? Is there not an error for 80 or 800 ships?」
「There is no error.」
「Do they really want to do this?…… Furthermore, an observer officer? If they only sent eight ships, isn’t it like saying that we are sending the observer officer to his death!! How can we do something like sending an officer to what is clearly his death sentence!」
Even though they had established diplomatic relations with Japan, except for some Foreign Affairs Officials, at this time, only few people knew the real strength of Japan. Pancare had never seen a Japanese destroyer ship, so this was a natural reaction.
Silent spread between the two.
「…… I will go.」
Bruay solemnly spoke up.
「My swordsmanship is the highest in the Navy. So if it becomes a melee fight, my survival rate is the highest. Furthermore, that Metal Dragon flew from Japan. So perhaps there is a chance of victory.」
「The Metal Dragon that came from across the ocean and flew without flapping its wings. I have not seen it, perhaps it can be considered to have a considerable power……? I am sorry but ... I will leave this matter to you.」
Armed insurgents… *snicker*
I love the political “doublespeech”.
Also, 8 (missile) Destroyers versus 4400 (pre-cannon) warships.
