Shomen Tanteidan

Battle Spirits: The Novel

Prologue

Do you know about Isekai World...?

Apart from what they display to the public, museums and galleries usually have many other pieces that their guests cannot see. The Sawaragi Gallery has a special safe where these secret items are collected.

"If it had been an ordinary jewel in the case, that would be a tall tale... but..."

"It wasn't an ordinary jewel... it was a pyroxene. Not to mention..." Okyou licked her chops. "A cursed pyroxene, at that...!"

The stone clasping J's cape shone the same mystic color as his eyes. Okyou jumped onto J's shoulder, brushing her cheek against his soft hair. "Does this have anything to do with Isekai World...?" said Okyou ominously.
