Hanging High School: The Nonsense Bearer's Pupil (クビツリハイスクール 戯言遣いの弟子, Kubitsuri Hai Sukūru: Zaregoto Tsukai no Deshi) is the third book in the Zaregoto light novel series.


"My job this time around is to free a student named Yukariki Ichihime from her academy."

"To 'free' her...the way you phrase it makes it sound almost as if the academy's imprisoning that girl, doesn't it?"

Conceding to a strange request from Humanity's Strongest Contractor Aikawa Jun, "I" aka "Nonsense Bearer Ii-chan" has infiltrated Sumiyuri Private Academy, better known as "Hanging High School", and inadvertently plunged himself straight into a veritable tempest of slaughter.

The definitive work of a new generation, the Zaregoto Series.
