How interesting are you, Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou?

But I tripped and fell into a harem!

If you have what it takes, I’ll let you [save the girl].

All I need is what it takes, right?

Do you think you can kill me? Its been one hundred years since I’ve seen someone this interesting. Then let’s see what you have!
