Now, how does Tomoe pretend to negotiate with Lich?
“Thank you. That skull over there, no, maybe I should call you Lich. You want to know about the graunts right? In short… wouldn’t that mean you know of other worlds?” (Tomoe)
What did Tomoe say just now?!
Lich clearly shows he is disturbed by the mention of the word other worlds. But that was the same for me.
“Hohoh~. Bull’s-eye huh. You aren’t actually the first one talking about graunts after all. There are two types that have arrived at the existence called graunt. The first ones are the heroes that sought for power. For them, they pile up achievements and get recognized by the Goddess and spirits, and get reborn as their dependents” (Tomoe)
So when you become a dependent of the Goddess or a high spirit, you become a race called graunt huh. I didn’t even know about the word graunt before so I would certainly not be able to answer him.
But then, what does other world…
After Tomoe stared at Lich’s disturbed face until satistifed, she once again connects the words she stopped midway.
“And the other is, the people that know that this world isn’t the only one out there. Questers, is probably what I should call them. From the small seams in this world as well as the records of numerous visitors that have come in the past, people that were originally not supposed to know about the existence of those worlds, some of them ended up travelling to them” (Tomoe)
Lich was staring at Tomoe as if wanting to eat her. To the point that it would make you wonder if he could kill people with his gaze. Incredibly intense eyes that could not compare to just a few moments ago.
“You most likely thought like this. Graunts, being a high race of hyumans, were power bearers that could actually travel through worlds” (Tomoe)
“T-That’s right! If it’s a graunt, I can certainly travel the worlds. I can surely move to the world I “want”! Am I right?!” (Lich)
Lich’s words were like a broken dam, with one breath he said it all and poured it onto Tomoe. Even so, Tomoe’s profound look wasn’t affected at all.
I understood that there was no opening for me to enter in between these two’s conversation.
However, I heard words I couldn’t let go.
Traveling through worlds. Moving through the world you want.
That… could it mean that I would be able to return to the world I had given up once, the world where my family and friends are in?
Tomoe, what do you know? I am of the same sentiment as him, I want to know.
“W-What did you say?” (Lich)
“You must have researched a lot of books, legends, and documents. I don’t know how long you have lived and how much you must have pumped yourself into in order to do that, it is hard for me to even imagine it. And then, you decided on your ideal graunt” (Tomoe)
“Just like I said a few moments ago-ja. Graunts are the dependents of the Goddess and the ones that follow her, reincarnated ones and also the ones who traveled through the worlds… no, people that traveled through the cracks of the worlds” (Tomoe)
“Don’t you understand? In short, graunts are existences that were made anew, a word that points out a superior “one”. It’s not a race, nor do they have the power to travel through worlds-ja yo” (Tomoe)
“While in their hyuman body, they found seams of the world in the past and researched on their own, and a number of them threw themselves into it. The ones that half-bakedly jumped into the world seam, some of them saw the other world’s seam as if looking through a kaleidoscope and returned to this world. When they did so, their existences had changed into what is called graunts. I don’t know what they saw, but they just left a number of books without telling any accurate details and died prematurely” (Tomoe)
“Then, what about the ones that didn’t return?” (Lich)
Lich’s words were as if he wringed them out. I don’t know if he actually wants to know, or maybe he doesn’t want to know.
“If they were able to go to the other world, then they are living as graunts. In the case that that person died before it happened, his hyuman flesh would separate and scatter away. If they were able to change to the other world, it may be possible that the Goddess would know through that world’s God, but the things that happen after the person was thrown into the seam, aside from Gods, there is no one who would be able to know. There are exceptions, but that is probably something that is not related to you” (Tomoe)
“… No way” (Lich)
“People are living beings that look at what they want to look at-ja. They see the fragmented information and connect them in a way they desire. That is something no one would be able to blame. Including your conjecture about the graunts-” (Tomoe)
“Ex… ceptions. That’s right, what about the exceptions?! What kind of situation does it take?” (Lich)
Even though Tomoe’s words were stopped midway, she didn’t get angry. She must have felt sympathy as it was just as she predicted would happen.
“I ask of you, please” (Lich)
“There is only one exception I know of, the permission of the Goddess-ja. If for example, the Goddess opens that gate, instead of becoming a graunt, there is a higher chance for the hyuman to transfer as a hyuman. Of course, even if I say there is a higher chance, the success rate is lower than 1 percent-ja na” (Tomoe)
Saying there is a higher chance and it is less than one percent? Isn’t that practically suicide?
Hearing up to this point, I understood that even if Lich eternally wanted to become a graunt, it didn’t mean he threw away being a hyuman.
“Then, that means this one… just what was I trying to…” (Lich)
His eyes looked at the table as if eating into it. I could feel stupefaction in his eyes that were already lacking in will.
“I don’t know what is it you were trying to aim for. Because if you don’t want to tell me I won’t ask you” (Tomoe)
“But you know, you are a lucky one just as Mio over there-ja” (Tomoe)
Mio, without knowing the reason of why her name was called so suddenly, stared in surprise at Tomoe.
Tomoe, what are you saying? Even though you are the one that ended his pursuit in such a despairing manner.
“Mio also, isn’t that different from you. An existence that should originally remain unsaved. But in front of you, who is there?” (Tomoe)
“… Makoto-dono right?” (Lich)
“That’s right-ja, my master Makoto-sama-ja. What do you think I am? Hyuman?” (Tomoe)
“… Like hell that is possible. There is no way a hyuman that possesses so much knowledge can exist” (Lich)
Disinterested. Lich’s words were as if they would disappear at any moment.
“Then, what do you think I am?” (Tomoe)
“By process of elimination you should be… a Goddess? Maybe a high spirit? Or maybe a superior dragon? Hahaha, just how in the world did you guys turn hyuman shaped and ended up coming to this kind of place” (Lich)
This fellow is impressive. Looking at Tomoe, and thinking about the contents of what she said, one of the answers he gave from the narrowed possibilities was actually correct.
As an ex-student, I look up to these kind of things.
“Here, if you are a Lich you should be able to do it, try to guess it from my magic power. That kind of analysis is your favorite area right?” (Tomoe)
I could feel a presence close to a fighting stance from Tomoe’s body and she was filled with magic power.
Lich quizzically looked at that state, but in the midst of it, his eyes opened wide. Is it really possible to tell apart one’s race by looking at their magic power?
“Dragon. And it is one that is quite powerful. Don’t tell me…” (Lich)
“What an impressive fellow. I am Shen, right now I am named Tomoe though” (Tomoe)
“S-Shen? The mist dragon, that “invincible” dragon?!” (Lich)
Hey hey. He really got it right. And he even knows the name of Shen.
Is it that Lich’s knowledge is impressive, or could it be the reputation of Shen’s name that is impressive?
Tomoe was making such a remote place as her dwelling, so I thought that she wasn’t that known. Lich was previously a hyuman so more the reason.
“So you do know. It’s that Shen-ja” (Tomoe)
“No way. Why is a superior dragon in such a crowded and unclear place” (Lich)
“I just changed my beliefs-ja yo. I have found a person that was more worth to work under than the Goddess you see. The things I talked to you about, I think that any books should have it… well, there is no way they have it, this kind of talk. If it is known that you can go out from this world, it would become a big chaos. The only people that know about this are the ones that I told you a few moments ago, and also, disclosing this is prohibited okay? You would definitely become a purging target after all” (Tomoe)
“Then, why did you tell it to this one?” (Lich)
“It is simple. I was charmed by you-ja” (Tomoe)
Charmed, as in falling in love? No, there is no way. That’s definitely not what she meant. It is that huh, because he was able to awaken the power of the forest ogres or something like that.
She certainly did have a look of admiration. Could it be that this is a plan to awaken the long lost power of the orcs and the lizards?
“That’s right-ja. Hey, you pitiful Lich that has forgotten his name…” (Tomoe)
With a self-satisfied look on her face, Tomoe slowly said each word out as if detailing each of them.
“Become the follower of Waka” (Tomoe)
And that’s what she said.

will it transform to girl also?
I would spit blood if that happened. And not the good kind of blood.
Blood from nose?
The life kind of blood?
i’m actually thinking guy. every fantasy harem needs a trap.
splurt* a liquid flows from the small hole as it opens and closes like gasping for air because of extreme arousal. it flows down to the lovable pinkish colored cherry (lips).
And that’s what she said. (if you know what I mean) WAHAHAHAHAHA sorry I’ll just leave now.
nah, the lich is way too weak xD
He will definetly becaome some equipment oder a key-chain-sized skeleton xD
Yes. Obvious outcome is obvious.
Find out at the next chapter!
Chapter 58: The Skeleton Girl Slave Join The Harem!
No, I think the lich is a guy. There’s a picture in the comment few chapter behind.
And thanks for the chapter, rei^^
Indeed, in the comment thread for chapter 52. The relevant text box seems to be:
識（しき） — 元は「リッチ」と呼ばれるアンデッドモンスター。真と契約したことで人の姿となった。魔法の知識に長けている。
If I read it correctly, it says:
Shiki — Originally an undead monster called “Lich”. Assumed a human shape because of the contract with Makoto. Excels in knowledge of magic.
Again, “Shiki” written with that character is given as a girl’s name in WWWJDIC, but since the Lich himself said he was a man, then I guess that he would become a guy, after all. He doesn’t look much like a trap from that picture, anyway, unless it’s the opposite kind of trap.
that would be kinda hilarious coz the lich said he was a man after all…
though it would be ok if it’s a trap…
A trap like this?
no he will transform to handsome red hair
He’ll turn into a trap, anything else just would not make any sense
I doubt Lich will become a girl.
Nah,maybe he will transform a cute boy and people who saw waka they tought he already has kid and said:Lucky bastard
thanks for the chapter…
[…] Chapter 57: Talking with the corpse – Second Part – Blog: Tsuki ga Michibiku Isekai Douchu Author: Reigokai […]
thanks a lot
I think the litch will faint if they sense him without the rings XD
Achmed is that you
Thank for the update
Thanks for the chapter!
So, the question is, will the lich become a woman too?
Thank you for the Chapter!
If that skeleton followed makoto. will it turn into a girl? it will, right? since there is no need for a man other than makoto in his team. 😀
Thanks! 🙂 Obviously the Lich will become a loli since they are currently missing one 😛
the loli come next after the lich
And waka has gained 1 skelotor !
Also thanks !!!
Wut wait,, it’s over ??
Whyyy ?? it’s felt so short.. ugh
thanks for the meal anyway ~
I knew it, I knew that it would end up like that. Still what would that lich turn into later.
and here i thought mio was the “trap”. Silly me.
oh, to came across you on this novel, what a surprise. Still waiting for that last volume of maoyuu

Thanks for the chapter!
Now I really wonder if the skeleton will turn into Makoto’s servant or not. That lich doesn’t sound like female at all..
thank you so much! hahaha…. i’ll bet a guy though it wouldn’t be weird if it come out as a girl. harem reason..
Google for character info..spot a red hair guy in several cover…is that the lich?
Lol @ the ending “thats what she said”
Makoto needs a guy friend!!!! No turning into a girl!!! XD
Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!
Don’t worry, the chances of that happening are a trillion-to-one. Not to mention I saw a picture of post-Lich.
is she saying that Lich should contract with Makoto? but hes so weak, isnt it unfair for them, if he ends up as powerful as them because of Makoto’s power?
Actually, an Elder Lich is one of the most powerful undead. Cause they specialize in magical theory and practice, they can match with vampires. The only reason this guy feels weak is because he challenged Makoto. And we were having fun talking about how weak he is when trying to catch Makoto and Mio.
Thanks for the chapter, Reig. I saw no typos that I could sense the first time around like with the previous one. Overall, it was a good chapter non the less. Still, I hope that I was correct on my guess that Lich will not become a woman.
Thanks for the chapter! !
Welcome to WAKA’s Harem
El Psy Congro
Welcome to WAKA’s Harem
El Psy Congro
well, he need a butler, no ? 😀
Thank u always for ur great work…
thanks for the chapter!
tomoe likes period dramas, mio likes anime
what about the lich if he joins? school life, research and genetics?
Just give Waka some bro already. He need some bros moment
Finally caught up on this. Gonna need to find a new wn now…sigh
Also if the Lich turns into a bishoujo does it count as necrophillia?
Yeah, this cliff~
He will become a trap, regain his memories and end up having an embarrassingly cute name. Probably why he wanted to become a lich in the first place.
Then the mist world will stabilize and unholy ground ideal for research will sprout up
Gotcha catch em all
Lich converted into…. trap
If you did actually do that I would probably piss myself laughing and then drop this 😛
Well I hope Lich is a girl
Thanks 4 the chapter!
Tomoe isn’t telling the lich that her ‘Waka’ is from another world and empowered by one of that world’s gods?
Thanks for the new chapter!
Ummmmmp! Ummm!~ staring at that lich pelvis even albedo would make a shooting fountain of nosebleed out of that!!! Who wouldn’t taha!
i’m betting it’s because the lich knows some kind of smithing technique or a way to grow rice or something
thanks for the chapter
Did everybody forget lich stated he was a dude…
Soo…. Considering Makoto’s parents had travelled to other world… maybe one of them was this Graunt thing? Something like, one of them travels to Earth more or less by accident, becoming a Graunt in the progress, Tsukuyomi contacts the Goddess, and the traveller’s SO gets sent by the Goddess to Earth, thus incurring the debt, which caused Makoto to travel to this world?
Not really Senevri. From what I’ve read, Makoto’s parents were originally hyumans from Goddess’s world who travelled to Tsukiyomi’s world by permission of the Goddess herself. The had achieved Goddess’s approval after completing quests (they really want to go another world) and made promise to send one child back to her world as her hero/dependent.
They succeeded in the transfer, intact, but had difficulty adjusting to Earth’s harsh environment (the gravity, air, etc.). Goddess gave them blessings to survive here. But their second child (Makoto) and last child/daughter had no blessing. Makoto really worked hard and trained since small to get strong enough to survive on earth. In a sense, that is what a Graunt is really is I think.
From what i can understand of tomoes explination. Graunts are either humans who travelled to new worlds and were altered due to that travel or ones who were reincarnated by a god as their decendants. The lich mistook the order of things and thought graunts could freely travel to different worlds.
Graunts are hyumans favored by the goddess directly , they established a contract the same one with Tomoe gaining immense power although also perhaps before their ascending they were given one wish to be granted which makes you possible to travel to the other world. In a way since Makoto himself is basically on the path that would make him step in the god’s stage the fact that Shiki make a pact with him Shiki basically became a graunt in the same concept
WHAT?! I caught up already?!?!?!… but I barely started this yesterday morning T__T
Makoto’s new “bodyguard”, you know, just for the looks lol
Waitttt…. that was not new heroine… please dooont…..
I knew it. I wonder what kind of changes he’ll bring to Asora. Also wondering how the others will react to having a Necromancer living with them, especially if he’s also experimenting on them.
thanks for the chapter
I want to know why Tomoe is so persistent in the power of the forest ogre.
