Chapter 65: Gossip – Gritonia’s Hero 2


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year dudes and dudettes! Seriously this time of the year is one of the busiest ones.

Hope everyone is having a great time :3

Anyways, enjoy the chapter. Dark Chapter, as expected of fake Tomoki. You have been warned.


Level 389 hero.

By the time Limia’s hero party had met face to face and stood in the battlefield, the unchanging world of silver, the empire, had already begun the defense line fight against the demon race.

And its leading actor was, without saying, the hero that had a prominent level in the empire. Iwahashi Tomoki.

The empire currently has the strongest hyuman who is level 920, but instead of worrying about the war with the demon race, she was preparing for another threat. The one who did the most in war was Tomoki.

The empire straightforwardly sent him to the numerous battlefields, and Tomoki did as requested and fought in battle. And so, his skills were polished in battle.

He registered in the Adventurer Guild at his second night in coming to this world. His measured level was 98.

… He leveled up in an abnormal pace.

At first, as a hero, Tomoki was told that his objective should be Sofia. That girl, who is called the dragon killer, is level 920.

There is probably people outside stronger than her. Tomoki willfully went into battle, and the empire, no, the second princess Lily acted as his guardian and provided good support to him, accelerating his progress.

The empire concealed the hero and viewed the hero practically only for war.

Sometimes he would do a triumphal return crossing the streets, but since he had full body armor and an exaggerated helmet, most don’t actually know how he looks like.

His daily life is mostly spend in the castle. Well, it is more accurate to call the battlefield his daily life though.

“Limia’s hero is level 138 huh. Will she be able to help me out with that?”

Tomoki asked the princess who told him about the other hero, Hibiki, without any intentions of making a fool of her, but honestly asking. She is only one third of his level after all. Also, he was a bit uneasy about fighting alongside her.

“It hasn’t been that long since she was summoned. We don’t know what will happen in the future Tomoki-sama”

The princess calls Tomoki with the honorific –sama, and responds with a smile.  In the beginning Tomoki had an impression of being a proper and cold girl, but as time passed that impression became milder, and if he were to describe her now it would be a kind nobility princess.

That’s the type Tomoki yearns for, and while thinking that this is also the effect of his demon eyes, he was happy.

At the first day he appeared in that world, Tomoki was guided to a lot of places and in that time, he was being secretly investigated. There was no way the demonic eyes she already knew about would take effect on her. Because she made counter-measures so that the nobility would not be affected by it.

Tomoki, who didn’t think that he had been investigated, still believes that they don’t know about his demonic eyes and didn’t even hold any doubts at all.

Tomoki hasn’t told anyone about his demonic eyes, nor his special immortality characteristic. Because he didn’t feel like telling anyone about his abilities that might show negative impressions on others or could become his trump card. His immortality has not been discovered by anyone yet.

“Hmph, you are right. I was 98 in the beginning too so, she will climb up fast” (Tomoki)

Currently it is only a step in the plans, but the empire is right now discussing about how to conquer one of the demon race’s base. It’s just that, in that plan they have to ask for the help of Limia no matter what, a big scale plan. They are waiting for the hero of Limia to get to a point that can be useful.

That’s why in regards of Limia’s hero, Otonashi Hibiki, they have already obtained the latest information from a spy in the kingdom of Limia. Accurate information is being sent from that faraway place.

There was no surprise that Tomoki, who knew of this plan when inside the castle, would want to know the information of Limia’s hero.

“But Tomoki-sama, why do you want to hear about Limia’s hero so suddenly? Could it be… you know her?” (Lily)

“That’s not it. I heard her name, but it’s someone I don’t know. Her age is 18, right? I don’t know someone that is 3 years older than me” (Tomoki)

“Then why? Is it because she seems to be on the good-looking side? Did you begin to crave for her?” (Lily)

“What, are you jealous? It’s fine. Because I am plenty happy with Lily and everyone else” (Tomoki)

“… Really? If you want someone just say the word, okay? For the superior to want women is something natural. I won’t blame you for that” (Lily)

A sweet voice is whispered in his ears.

Tomoki nods looking satisfied.

“Yeah, at that time I will say it without reservation” (Tomoki)

“Okay” (Lily)

“About the fights…” (Tomoki)

“Let’s see, it seems that a part of the northwest line has been invaded so, if we are going to set out, it would be there probably” (Lily)

“I see. What should we do?” (Tomoki)

“First, let’s have lunch. I came here to call you, you know?” (Lily)

“So it seems. Understood. Then let’s go to the round table” (Tomoki)

“Yes, Tomoki-sama” (Lily)

The two of them, accompanied by a number of maids, left the room.

Tomoki’s room is just beside the second princess’s room. A measure so that no unprecedented things happen.

In a floor where it was originally allowed only for nobility, a hero that has no blood relation to anyone is there, so this disorder is understandable.

“I, Lily Furont Gritonia, have decided to work for the hero Tomoki-sama and devote myself to him. That’s why I am thinking about having Tomoki-sama live beside me, and set it up perfectly so I can support him” (Lily)

The sudden proposition of the second princess confused the imperial family at first. But the next words made them tranquil instantly.

“That’s why I will be resigning the inheritance of the imperial throne. I want to leave the government affairs to the others. So could you please view the hero-sama in a favorable way?” (Lily)

Most of the people that were against her proposal were the factions that were fighting for the imperial throne, Lily’s brother and sister’s groups. And that political opponent is saying that she will be stepping down from the stage herself. There is no happiest thing than this.

It’s just that, there were the rights princess Lily owned. She is from the imperial familial and has been participating in the intense political strife for the throne of emperor, so she has a lot of rights. What would happen from now on is something that took the attention of them.

The nobles and siblings who understood that, soon turned silent and waited for the princess’s continuation.

“Regarding the numerous businesses and government affairs that I am in charge of, I am thinking of dividing almost all of them and give it to everyone here. I just want you to leave in my care the small part that could become the hero’s strength. Concretely speaking it would be in the military affairs part, but since the skills that the empire possess as a whole are open to the public and possess joint-ownership, I can’t have the military strength concentrate on me. Excepting that, everything else I plan on proceeding with the assignments” (Lily)

Cheers and commotion rise. Princess Lily, with her shrewdness, has raised a lot of enterprises. Even without the military part, to receive the transfer on everything else was plenty enough.

With this, the nobles and siblings shut their mouths. It’s just as she planned.

Next in the list would be her father. The man who is the emperor.

Obviously, he asked the princess her reason for the sudden resignation of the imperial throne. Even if the hero has come, it is more realistic to use your power properly and have your political strength increase massively. Moreover, taking into account the past history of the princess, this is the natural conclusion. And in reality, the second princess Lily is certainly the closest one to the hero. She didn’t need to retire from the throne strife to provide support to the hero.

“The emperor is someone that succeeds the will of father. I feel like I want to succeed the will of mom. Mother was a devout follower of the Goddess-sama. She continued to belief in the Goddess-sama until the very end. I am truly sorry father, but I will inherit the will of mother and stay at the side of the hero that was send by the Goddess-sama” (Lily)

In the place where the highest will in the country is at, the reverberation of the bomb-like words were slowly settling. Her siblings, father, as well as the high nobles already knew that Princess Lily loved her mother deeply, and there were some that were moved to tears by her words.

“… Please forgive my selfishness. I will surely destroy the demon race along with the hero-sama and show you that we can revive that beautiful land of Elision” (Lily)

Leaving the needed amount of enterprises she thought would be necessary for the hero’s support…

At that day, Lily left the political strife stage. There were a lot who thought this was some kind of conspiracy, but after that, she supported the hero with dedication and blew away the doubts they had with her actions.

And so, now…

Tomoki and Lily were at the round table, in the place where they were called to.

In a garden where even in this precarious times still holds lush vegetation that healed the eyes of anyone that gazed upon it. At its center one could see numerous people and a literal round table.

It’s the garden that princess Lily’s mother loved. That place is where Lily had the hero use as a place to rest. In the past it was a place where no one was allowed in. When this place was liberalized, it surprised the nobles but it ended up in raising the valuation of the people that use the hero as lining.

There were some that were haughty and arrogant, but politics are warriors with no prospects. That is Tomoki’s assessment. It was in part because of their prejudice and coagulated sense of value, but since they are devote to the princess, they don’t have any ideas of rebellion and she doesn’t have an ounce of suspicion of them betraying.

“Tomoki-sama! The preparations are all ready. P-Please come this way”

“Onii-chan you are late!”

“I sacrificed time for research to come here you know. Don’t make me wait so long…… I know that you are busy though”

The three people that welcomed Tomoki and Lily were his companions. If they are to imitate the round table, then they would be Tomoki’s Knights of the Round Table.

The first one that called out nervously while inviting him to her side is Ginebia. Considered the strongest knight in the empire that protects the nobles, one of the royal guards. She was originally a person under Lily and also a close friend, but she is now limited to guarding both Tomoki and princess alike.

Though she has the body of a girl, she has trained to perfection the art of protection and the role of wall. The type of sorcery tool that was given to her is also one that is specialized in defense and her job possesses the name of a superior dragon that is famous for its defense, Grount. Royal Guard Grount is her unique job’s name.

Grount lives in the widest desert of the world and is the dragon that is said to possess the strongest defense. He is also known with the nickname of Sand Wave.

The next one is the young sounding voice that called Tomoki as brother, her name is Mora. Just like her voice tells, she is a young girl who is 12 years old. She is called the dragon spiritualist and is able to use a special summoning technique, a dragon summoner. She was originally raised in a local village at a family linage of shrine maidens, but because of the demon race’s invasion it was destroyed. Lily took care of her and ended up as her accompanying Tomoki.

The girl who uses dragons doesn’t have a unique job like Ginebia, but it is a rare job that only a few in the world possess.

The last one that callerd out complaining is Yukinatsu. Her origins were from Lorel Confederation, but looking for a place where she could do research more freely, she ended up working under Lily. Hearing the numerous unique ideas of the hero, she decided to accompany them. The fusion of armor and magic, the giant power that the ritual implements possess and the replicas of the so called sacred treasures; having an abnormal interest in the creation of these, she is a research type of person. Especially in the armor and magic area, she took a totally different approach from the dwarfs and because of those dangerous views she had, she was driven out of the confederation. Her job is Force Player. It is a rare job that only a few in the area of alchemy possess.

Currently, these three are Tomoki’s companions. Since the princess doesn’t participate in battle, she has the role of support in the rear.

With Tomoki’s suggestion of having a meal together, everyone was looking forward to the time when they would gather at the round table in the garden. The times when they can be together with him aside from battle are limited, so these times were precious for the girls that wanted to be with him even if for a little more.

Lily secretly took measures against the demonic eyes for the nobility, but there was nothing done to anyone else.

For Ginebia, Mora or Yukinatsu. Being basked by the demonic eyes so long, their good will came naturally and emotions were born inside of them, is what they believe.

“Lily-sama, Albert-sama said that he wanted you to confirm the documents of the meeting”

“Ara, for Ani-sama <Brother> to tell me this in the middle of a meal, what bad timing. I’m sorry, Tomoki-sama. I will be going for a bit. When you go to the battlefield I will definitely be there to see you off, so don’t leave without telling me okay?” (Lily)

Truly in the moment when the princess was about to join the round table, a chamberlain came and spoke to her.

“Oh, I see. If it’s the call of Albert-sama, there is no helping it. After finishing the meal with everyone I will be resting so it is okay. If it ends up in me going to battle, I will definitely tell you” (Tomoki)

Tomoki knows of Lily’s brother and he won’t blame her for that. Things like this happen from time to time so he is used to it. Right now she is putting her all in supporting him, but he knows that in the past the princess managed a lot of works. He understands that she is busy.

“Got it. Then, Ginebia, I am counting on you” (Lily)

“Leave it to me” (Ginebia)

Ginebia complies with the princess’s words. Her loyalty for the princess has most likely remained unchanged.

Lily nods looking satisfied and followed lead, leaving the garden.

– Lily’s side –

“What is the progress’s state?”

“Right now it is going smoothly. The adapting ability of the hero can only be called as a miracle. To be able to freely wave around that god spear without riding a horse really overwhelmed me”

It is natural for him to do something of that extent.

Iwahashi Tomoki was compatible with all the sorcery tools. That’s why the empire let him choose anything from the treasure warehouse that contained extremely superior weapons and armor.

The first thing that he chose was not a weapon or armor, but a ring that worked as a warehouse, storing any items inside it.

After that, he had serious eyes while selecting a number of weapons and after testing them, he stored 12 weapons in his ring which filled the capacity of it. Next he selected the armor and in the training area it was adjusted.

He chose a rubber suit that fit his body and metallic type protectors that covered several parts on his body and are enhanced with defense magic. In the empire, these were protectors that possessed quite the power, but there was no one that could handle them. The use of these were soon authorized.

There is no way he could pass his daily life wearing a suit that fit his body, so regarding that suit is something that is prepared only when there is a need to use it in battle.

After that, Iwahashi Tomoki was given a number of magic items that create a barrier with high efficiency against black magic and physical attacks to be equipped on him for his daily life. It is good to have a sense to protect yourself. Masterpieces that were tested in the border wastelands, the Clay Aegis and many others.

This was going well.

The effects of the silver boots that were given by the Goddess were also outstanding. Even if he trains several times the amount of a normal person, or stands in the battlefield continuously, his fatigue will be healed at a rapid pace.

“What about his body? What is the difference in effects between administering the dosage to him and that of other hyumans?”

“There is also no problems in that. It is originally something that only reduces the lifespan of someone anyways. The other ones are also proceeding smoothly”

“I see. Then that’s good”

In his food there are elixirs mixed that accelerate his growth rate and enhance his magic power and body. I wanted to know the difference in effects between him and other people, so I had the food of all the members, aside from mine, mixed in with that elixir. I haven’t gotten their approval to do so though.

But for it to be going smoothly is good. There is the possibility that secondary effects appear immediately and make them unable to participate in battle. If that happened, it would be putting the cart before the horse.

I abandoned my rights to the imperial throne. Because of that, the problems that were annoying all flowed to my siblings. I will just do what I have to do and concentrate my all in it. There is no better happiness than this.

That’s right, I don’t need the imperial throne.

In the end…

The empire will…

Be usurped by Iwahashi Tomoki.

I have been whispering him the will of a supreme ruler, the reign component and the logic of a violent king.

It appears that that boy obtained power as he entered this world and before that he was a misfortunate person. I also heard stories about him being bullied by girls in his surroundings.

In short… he is being festive about the massive power he suddenly obtained.

How convenient. What a mistake.

That’s why I act as the type of girl he likes and bewitch him. It is okay to say that I am already half done.

When I invited him at the evening party, he didn’t reject me. <TN: probably in a sexual meaning>

On the contrary, it seems to have given him self-confidence and he began calling himself with “ore”*. It also seems that he has put his hand on Ginebia, Mora and Yukinatsu. <TN: “ore” is a more informal way of saying “I” in Japanese><… WAIT, Isn’t Mora FRIKIN 12?!>

I don’t care.

In the future he can go creating a harem or whatever he wants. More like, I will assist him in doing so.

It is better to have more things to tie him into the throne and political power.

If I push in a sweet poison inside that weak heart who has been affected by bullying, he won’t think about opposing me. There is no doubt that he is thinking he himself ended up wanting to become a king and obtain the empire.

Of course, that will be when our victory against the demon race has been settled. It can’t happen if that doesn’t occur first.

When that time comes, I “who has become his loyal slave” will support him in whatever he wants.

The other countries are also worth my attention.

The hero, who was send by the goddess, that young egg of a tyrant told me a truly delightful idea.

This should be a good time for the experimentations to enter the real stage. For the sake of the day that is to come.

The experiment of the elixir should be enough now. This middle-aged alchemist male has truly served me well.

“Then, what should we develop now? I know, how about a… for the he… ro… eh?”

“It’s already enough. Thanks for your hard work” (Lily)

The sleeve of my white clothes began to dye itself in dark red.

It is more convenient to have people that don’t have the knowledge and tell them only the production process in order to make an assembly line.

I am a person devoted to Iwahashi Tomoki, so I don’t need evidence of me creating something that harmed his body. I also don’t need anyone that knows.

Creating a team with me, who is at the top, and a number of skilled researchers, we obtained good enough results. Now I will finish them off orderly just like this. Perfectly.

‘Why?’ the middle-aged man that made such a face, fell down and stopped all functions.

I hand over the dagger I had in my hands to the chamberlain that was waiting at the entrance. Her eyes didn’t have any light of a will.

“Take care of that and burn the house. Make sure that everything in this room becomes ashes. And you will burn along with your important person that is over there. Okay?” (Lily)

I whispered detailed instructions slowly at her ears, and have her hold the dagger.

This is good.

When I confirm the chamberlain has gathered all the documents, I take off my clothes and turned them to ashes.

My upper half is now underwear, but I didn’t mind. I will be teleporting to my room at the castle anyways, so no one will see.

I have to return to Tomoki’s place soon. Today is the battle in the northwest area.

But before that…

“Now, next will the development of the delightful weapon hero-sama told me about” (Lily)

After returning to my room, I changed my clothes and confirm the documents of the plan that have been done reasonably well.

That is… a weapon that provides the same power to kids with no power, to old people who have lost their power, people that have nothing. The amount of magic power is no problem at all.

It’s a truly a delightful and “impartial” weapon. A weapon that just by having, you will get power.

By the time the other countries begin the production of inferior products and throw them to the battlefield, the war will be over already.

The demon race, the Goddess, and her religion…

I will destroy them all.

“Guns. That is the kind of name it had. I have to hurry I make them” (Lily)

    1. The ‘hero’ himself is fine it’s the princess behind him that is the problem. Should instead say it’s typical that the hyumans supported by said bug goddess turn out to be this way.

      1. But she doesn’t support bug goddess? In fact, she hates bug goddess?

        She wants to place guns in the people and essentially creating potential genocides within the hyumans and cut down her religion to null. This is far from supporting.

      2. You mean the hero who knowingly uses charm eyes to build a harem? Dunno, significant emotion/memory/personality modification seems like it might be ethically worse. Probably more consistent with the goddess though. The princess’ actions seem more an archetypal court politics; not really something that’s reliant on the goddess’ influence.

      3. lol, that Hero is useless. All people who get a brainwash ability and don´t have the brainz to use it right, are useless villain candidates. Hell, he brainwashed his hero party and already fucked his loli, how much more useless as a person can he become?

      4. From what we’ve read it seems princess has done some brainwashing of herself (chamberlain with “lifeless eyes” who burned herself to death feels brainwashed quite a bit).

        So from where I stand it seems this princess and hero are made for each other.

        P.S. also of course one of the heroes had to fuck up and tell others about guns.

      5. I know this comment is 3 years later, ok!! But I still need to say this!

        The so called “Hero” is utterly stupid! Don’t you know what the fuck happened to your own world when they invented guns!? Wars, massacres and innocent people dying!!!! The fuck is wrong with him!!! And the “Bug” is the most stupid one of them all!!! And this bitch(the princess) is planning on making kids handle them!!! And this fu**ing pedophile!! I really, reeaaaalllllyyyyy
        fu **ing hate him!!

  1. Thanks for the chapter! 🙂 I like this girl way more the Hero although I don’t like people scheming behind another’s back I don’t like people changing their nature because they got power all of a sudden more

    1. people don’t change their nature when they get power… power doesn’t corrupt people. it just gives people the opportunity to show their true nature and not fear the consequences.

      1. I never said power corrupts, MC is a perfect example that it doesn’t. I’m talking about how this weak willed guy got strong and now believes that he can do what he wants, even becoming arrogant enough to not put other people in his eyes(even those stronger the him). I can already see him meeting the MC and getting thrashed quite frankly he reminds me of Tact from TnY

  2. she’s bringing guns to a bow fight. srsly tho, hate the hero, hate the princess, hate the default harem, and i hate that they’re obviously going to try to sink their claws into the other hero, who probably has a thing for the MC.

    rly hoping we get to the them dying part of this story rather soon.

    1. Use fireball, gun explodes. It’s not like they can shield the gunpowder.

      Or use earthquake and throw off everyone’s aim.

      But I wonder if realism will play a part here.

      1. I believe our MC did mentioned something about this few chapters ago, right?
        I think his conclusion was that introduction of guns will only serve to kill off weaklings (so a lot of blood shed for not much gain).
        Then again if you’ve read Arifureta you can imagine how much damage magic enhanced guns could cause.

    2. Bringing a gun to a bow fight is only a bad idea when your opponent is either Olivier Queen, Clint Barton, or our MC Makoto here. Seriously, he’s already on par with the bug as is. So yeah… the princess will only be lucky if she herself never meets Makoto.

      1. and we still don´t know what his frikking armor wil be able to do xD I mean, just imagine waht fucked up passives the armor can give, just by absorbing the MCs unconsciooly leaking power xD Most likely he will be invincible even before using sakai :p

      2. Speaking of which, I’ll bet the dwarves are loving still not being able to create suitable equipment for him. They’re at the pinnacle of their craft, so much so that they are probably bored and angry at nobody being suitable for their best products. Then Makoto comes around, and instead of being below their best, they can’t even make anything suitable. Now that they see a new peak that exceeds what they’ve achieved, they see it as the ultimate challenge to reach it. And I’m rambling. Maybe I haven’t gotten all that alcohol out of my system yet. Sorry.

      3. The problem with guns in a world with magic is that the people have higher physical stats. With enough def most of the guns will become useless against you. Since most of the soldiers wear some kind of protective gear (shield, armor, scales, tough skin, etc.) and use magic to defend (barriers, buffs) its even harder for a gun to be effective against them.
        Unless they can make something like a high caliber and high firerate gatling gun a bow would still be stronger in the hands of a skilled archer.

        As Makoto said, regular guns would be only useful when used by weak soldiers against other weak opponents.
        They would only be useful if they manage to mix it with magic (like in Arifureta) or if they have some convenient materials and production methods to make it strong enough.

  3. Didn’t Makoto already figure out that guns weren’t viable in this world due to things needing mana in them to even be able to do damage? Or am I confusing that with a different novel where guy was trying out guns but it was found they were useless due to the projectiles needing mana in them to be able to do damage?

    1. Game worlds like in shield hero cancel out the effectiveness of guns by having the user’s lvl affect the power and speed of the bullets. So only OP people can use guns effectively in that kind of world, this one should be fine. I don’t think a gun would affect, as much anyway, common sense breaking existences like those found in Asora, though.

    2. You may be mistaken with another novel since I remember a manga talking about mana protecting everything and the requirement of the weapon conducting (wooden arrows) mana or containing mana(magic ores) to have any effect. The manga was about a ex knight in the countryside meeting a bunch of transported people from Japan with cheats(taming, healing, strength). Needless to say that series and this are different series

      1. Yeah I couldn’t remember where I had read that particular thing was thinking it was this novel since I remember the specific thing bout bows but yeah I do read that particular manga you talking bout. When you read so many things that have similar things like this stuff gets confused on what happened where lol.

      2. Ya. In an earlier chapter author (thru MC) explains this world’s physics of attack/defense.
        Effectiveness of any attack is all about attacker’s level & amount of maryoku(magic) vs defender’s level & maryoku. So level10 hitting wt chunk of iron would b blown away by level100 wt a pebble.
        Even if gun is enchanted, u need to have enough maryoku 2 b able 2 use enchantment.
        That’s why eldwarves’ equipment is too powerful 4 most people but can’t last wt MC’s maryoku burning thru

    3. You’re not the only one. I remember reading it here, in one of the past chapters, but don’t remember which, and too lazy to go back and skim for it.

  4. I’ve been thinking. Isn’t the Goddess’ follower kinda have the same characteristics as her(the goddess)? Broken mind, racist, and more importantly Stupid(I get this feeling when this story came out).
    anyway, Thank you for the Chapter!

  5. Wow, there’s just so much potential here. Lily is ambitious as hell, and quite the schemer. But girl, the bug goddess already has a competent rival…will your carefully manipulated hero be up to facing off against Tsukuyomi’s discarded hero? I can’t wait, I really can’t. 😀
    It occurs to me that we’ve got viewpoints on all the sides, except for the demons. Are we ever going to learn their actual intentions? Or will they just serve as a usful distraction whilst Makoto builds his empire…?

    1. It did mention them one chapter, when they noticed the presence of the heroes and Makoto. It mentioned that the Goddess’s people forced them to the infertile northern lands just like the mamonos were forced to the wastelands. I’m assuming that is why they are fighting, and they believe the only way they can live in peace is to enslave the hyumans and destroy the Goddess. This is just a theory.

      1. Good thought. Although it raises another question in my mind… Didn’t we learn that this world was the creation of the bug? Or am I misremembering, and she actually came later? It seems…unlikely…that she created the demons and demis, if she hates them so much… But then, where else could they have come from? So interesting…

        1. This was actually explained in a previous chapter. The Goddess is a manager of the world, she didn’t create it and it was already there when it was assigned to her.
          The demi-humans and the demons are the original residents of the world and the hyumans are her creations.
          So yeah… she is trying to drive away the ones that were there first…

      2. The goddess came after the world was created. The only thing she created was the hyumans. The supreme dragons were the ones the bug made a contract with to settle that world.

      3. if bug made contract with superior dragons then Tomoe betrayed her & also the dragon slayer MY Sofia killed one of her contracts , right? ( assumptions…assumptions)

  6. Hahaha. Another sucker. Well, whatever plan this ‘pure’ princess is scheming, everything will turn to naught when faced with our waka-sama. Oh i hope there is a the future where her face distorted when her grand plans are ruined in front of her.

      1. How about A Full Metal(Mithril) Jacked Bullet, Coated with Darkness Magic, with Adamantium/Admantite as the Bullet Core ?

        The Projectile would be awesome, dunno about it’s accuracy though 😂

        *I knew i necroed, just itching to write a new kind of Fantasy munitions … Don’t shoot me 😅

    1. A Bitch princess would mean it is stupid and easy.

      She is far from easy and stupid. More importantly not rude in appearance at least. She is just smart and doesn’t view the topic of love as holy. IT is just a means for achieving what she wants in her opinion.

    2. I don’t think she is exactly a bitch, just seriously revenge driven villainess.
      But I want to see meet the true lv1 hero. Oh and Tomoe defeating guns with a katana.

  7. wah… if all princess like that when they meet a hero, then I’m glad that makoto didn’t meet princess. who knows what she’ll do to makoto? maybe she’ll drug him if she knows he is another hero?
    thank you!

      1. Mostly because he just gives up and lets her have her way cause he knows she wouldn’t do anything to purposefully put their people in danger. She did loose one argument, whether or not to allow the forest ogres permanently move to Asora.

      1. It’s not his fault the bug goddess gave him that power when he already had an inferiority complex from being bullied which made this particular power fro mthe bug goddess too tempting to use not to mention I don’t think he can actually turn it off anyway. Also add in that the royal family is not spreading the ability to block his power. Also a 15 year old sleeping with a 12 year old isn’t really that bad considering the time and place he is in and also it’s only a 3 year age gap.

      2. @libraryrocker Yes, if this behavior continues for to long, then burn the twerp.

        @mantazz Jailbait is anyone who is under the legal age. Pedo is someone who goes for prepubescent children. One is frowned upon depending on societal norms, (a 20 year old might be able to marry a 16 year old in one country, but not another), the other is obvious.

      3. Like that other guy said, a 15 year old sleeping with a 12 year old isn’t as bad as an adult. Plus, it’s a medieval society so 12 years old is probably considered an adult by them anyway.

        I half-forgotten about the mind control thing. However, it looks like the mind control is a bit more subtle than I originally thought about it. So he’s not blatantly using mind control to order people to sleep with him. It’s still bad but… it means his personality isn’t as manipulative as if he had the same power as Lelouch in Code Geass.

  8. Hey bitch guess what, you may make muskets but… What is that compared to a tactical nuke the size of a ring? Oh wait did I forget to mention, you’re gonna fight against a god who can create modern fire arms just from having someone look into his memory’s so bitch you are going to get wrecked if you touch his friends/ followers

      1. Actually, from discussions had throughout the story, technically Makoto exceeds the level of a god. He created a new world from scratch, which is more than bug can do, and Tsukuyomi talked about him being something to completely change that world beyond the interference of the gods (or something like that)

  9. All right, Yuki (the Devil King in my story) would hate this a lot. Guns in a fantasy world as well as an actual harem? Seriously!? Ugh… I hate Tomoki and the princess, I can’t wait for him to cross paths with Makoto now. Which means only one thing, on to Academy town!!! The place of education and Makoto’s next slave!

    On a side note, I was too busy with my new PS4 to catch this when it was posted. On to Double Edged Hero now!!!

  10. The princess is a bitch but I like her. I wonder what reaction she will have when she meet Makoto and knows his circumstances.
    Also I pity Tomoki(Faker) Harem…..

  11. So you need an ability to have girlfriends ? That is so pathetic, I can’t even take the hero(lol) Tomoki seriously. The Princess Lily will soon discover that all her plotting and killing will be for naught… unless that she is instrumental on the defeat of the goddess by cutting her power base and influence on this world. It would be a truely (divine) unfortunate irony. The goddess world is imploding because of her own doing. Gods can be killed by being forgotten, that’s one of the thing Tsukuyomi had happening to him at the start of the novel. Remember, folks. Haha no other gods is gonna help the Bug.

    1. he is proably a small cutie boy pretty much a very femine boy because of that he devolped such powers and the godess liked him and him choosing a full armor to cover himself up. But really he probaly was just treated as cute toy by the woman in his old world^^.

  12. Could some1 refresh my memory regarding the princess? I don’t think she is bad at all. This hero is screwed up in his head, and some1 wanting to take him down or use him is understandable, tho she is quite hateful.

    Where does this hate come from? Did something happen in the past? Does she only want to take down the Goddess and those blinded by her? Is that the reason why she is willing to go that far? Even disregarding herself?

    So she isn’t straight up evil. More like Naofumi from TnY. Tbh I wish for some1 to save her from the path she is walking.

      1. I see. So this is all the Bug’s fault. She helped the hyumans so much that they started to rely on her than themselves. Then the bug suddenly disappeared from their life’s one day. Ofc the hyumans would encounter problems and hardships. People who doesnt have any sense of independence.

        So her hate towards the bug is justified, but towards the world, not so much. I would guess that she just hates people who blindy trust that bug?

        I think removing that princess from her responsibility and put her in a remote land would be good for her mental health. Like srly, do it.

  13. Last chapter Folks and the beginning of the academy chapter, tho the hero girl will be furious when she hears that Makoto made a contract with the Calamity spider and they will Quarrel (wut I think tho and waitin to see)

      1. the know each other she is proably a love intrest from his real world. Both were in the material arts club. Maybe even the new hero because he seemed to know the girl at least. Kid face hero seems to have many complex because he was liked because he was unmanly i asume.

  14. Ayy, I was expecting the MC to become an anti-hero, but I didn’t know who’s supposed to be his enemy. Of course I was expecting that bug Goddess, but in the end, fighting someone who’s worshipped by people won’t make you a hero of everyone.

    But now, looks like we’ve found the villains 🙂

  15. Don’t know about you guys, but I like the manipulative princess, manipulative people move things on and create havoc all around whats not to like?

    Of course her means to an end are cruel and very inhumane, but at the end of the day does anyone really care?

  16. Thanks for the chapter!

    Last time, this hero was still salvageable, but it may not be the case any-more.
    “It also seems that he has put his hand on Ginebia, Mora and Yukinatsu” is not a very reliable information since it’s an estimation from the princess, but if he has already used his power to brainwash and rape them, he is very likely to meet a bad ending (the loli factor being aggravating).
    I guess he may make a good dragon and the princess a good big bad if the author do it correctly.

  17. that is the reason i don’t like the hero. type that give information about our weapon from our world’s. i don’t care if it is about food or engineering, but weapon is off limit. our own world almost destroyed by this very weapon but that stupid hero give the info to them willingly. unlike MC, where his memory been watch, this hero just the f**k tell them our weapon. ha~~, so stupid. learn the history stupid hero…. because of that “weapon”, WW1 and WW2 with cold war almost kill thousands of people. ha~~, so stupid.

  18. silly (crazy) princess. You might be able to kill the goddess yes, but there’s a tiny problem in the form of makoto and his entourage

    thanks for the chapter

  19. damn i can see makoto already killing them in the most horrible and gruesome way and specially not by his hand but leaving both of them on someplace that will be very satisfactory=3

    also somehow more than lily seeing makoto i want hero to see tomoe and mio i am extremely sure he will try to fetch them and both of them ignore him making him remember his trauma and try something in raidou =3 that would be the start of everything muahahaha

    1. Yep, that’s very likely. After he start getting women easily with his power, he will get greedy, even more if they are powerful, so if he know about their level from the guild, he may even come from far to recruit them. If the princess is able to protect herself and others nobles from his eyes, I don’t see how it would work on tomoe and mio, so it will frustrate him a lot and make him do stupid things.
      Anyway, scenaristically, the moment he started to use his power this way, he was bound to do stupid things 😀

  20. that hero is lucky for having the immortal power this power will save him for sure .well there an irrugular that will trash all of the plans of this mad princess :the M.C

  21. Thanks for your work !
    I love this novel however I would know if I am the only one who’s looking forward to see makoto stop hiding his power !?
    Oh, and hi I’m new here. Nice to meet you !

  22. Thanks for the chapter.

    I can already imagine Lily’s plans backfiring when the Hero she’s manipulating grows too greedy, finds out her real objectives of eliminating the Bug, and notices his power doesn’t work on Lily.

    Since he got his powers from the Bug, he’ll definitely side with her, as he has too much to lose otherwise, and since the royal family and nobility are also protected against him, he’ll likely kill them all by brainwash the ordinary people and the military to side with him.

    He’ll also likely learn about the stuff Lily has been secretly feeding him, and when he learns that it can speed up his power growth (while conveniently overlooking the reduced lifespan thing), he’ll probably start chugging them like there’s no tomorrow.

    Lily will then decide the only way to achieve her revenge on the Bug is through Makoto, and will beg him to make a 90-10 contract with her like he did with the Lich (they’ll have to find a different way around the power difference though since she’s just a hyuman).

    Also, I’m still waiting for Makoto x Ema. If they find a way of making a contract with someone like Lily then he can make one with Ema as well. 😛

  23. I feel like Lily will “fall” in love with the Tomoki in the end though because even if you have something resistance against the Demon Eyes doesn’t mean you are immune to it. In other words, slowly falling in love……. Along with destroying the religion of the Bug Goddess. Next it would be “all for Tomoki” or something. Just a speculation anyways.

  24. We have an interesting arc ahead! I gotta say that it would felt good to see those “chumps” got smashed by Mio and Tomoe. Nevertheless, this is great!

  25. Well Tomoki is your typical otaku, he’s a weak willed little shit that hides away after letting people walk on him. When he gains power he lets it go to his head and doesn’t think of the consequences of his action. Then because of his weak self, if he can lay his hands on anyone, he will, no matter how old they are, or maybe it’s just in japan all of them end up being pedophiles. Can’t say one way or the other on that one, but read mushoku tensai and it starts off with the guy masturbating to his niece before he gets hit by a truck, so I’m leaning towards all shut-in otaku’s in japan are just pedophiles.

    1. I think that you must’ve confused Mushoku Tensei with other LN. Really.
      He wasn’t masturbating, he was playing game instead of going to his own parent’s funeral. His family was mad at this and throw him out. Got hit by a truck… and you know the rest. The MC was a bit perverted, unlike Makoto.

      1. Nope dude was masturbating to lolicon hentai when his siblings came in on their parents funeral. The Karate or Judo brother kicked his ass out of the house then he died. The MC was the worst of the worst in terms of otaku stereotypes which is why it’s hard to read at the beginning but great as he changes.

  26. I’m waiting for the time when Lily’s “gun” meets the magical shields of Tomoe, Mio and Mikoto. 🙂
    I think the sword loving idiot (aka Tomoe) is really going to have fun with this group, a “dragon’s defensive power”, a dragon summoner and a gun wielder, none of them really work against her, lol.

    Ginebia: “Royal Guard Grount!!”
    Tomoe: “That guy? I beat him up whenever we meet at the dragon’s convention. Poor you, naming something after that little guy.”
    Ginebia: “…waahhh!!! You bully!!”
    Mora: “Dragon!!! Beat her up!!!”
    Tomoe: “SIT!!!”
    Dragon: “Woof!!!”
    Mora: “…my dragon went woof??!!..”
    Lily: “Meet my guns!!!”
    Tomoe: “Oh! I always wanted to try this, saw it in a movie once, watch me deflect bullets with a sword!!”
    Lily: “Tell my weapons developers we need better weapons!!”
    Chamberlain: “Sorry, you executed them after they finished designing the guns.”
    Lily: “……”


    And anyone else had the image of Tomoki in an old fashioned Godzilla costume when they said he used a rubber suit? Of course he can’t wear it in daily life, it’s social suicide. 🙂 Come to think of it, wasn’t there a WN that had a MC in an embarrassing but OPed costume? Penguin or something like that?

      1. whenever I hear “waka-sama” I think Dofflamingo.
        whenever I hear “waka” I think Really really really big Canoe, capacity 100 plus paddlers & family members, (kinda) downstairs for food storage and almost enough room to run on inside.

  27. Next chapter will be the beginning of the infamous Academy arc. But… Is it really as good as they say? I’m curious, just want to know.
    From the scale of ‘1’ to ‘Dragon’, how would you rate it? (if you’ve read it)

  28. dont’s worry if makoto want crate a gun it will become easy, because makoto have ancient dwarf. hahahahah. I can wait makoto to destroy bi**h goddess lol.

  29. To be honest.. Tomoki having it done with a 12 year old isn’t anything THAT creepy. He’s 15 years old. 3 years older than her. Age-wise if he did her then that honestly isn’t anything illegal.
    I mean yes it’s creepy to us as readers as we see 12 year olds as immature kids, but I do have to say that as it’s a fantasy world the concept of age will be different as people grow up depending on their environment and in war-torn worlds children who understand the concept of war and fight in it will have a more mature/calculating attitude to them as well so they will be different from how we see ordinary 12 year olds. (And not sure if Tomoki having put his hands on them actually meant sexually or that he’s trying to coerce them *shrug*.)..

  30. so who will the first make gun the princess side or makoto side…
    also i think her plan gotta be destroyed because of makoto existence well it will be better if they join hand to kill the BUG

  31. The hero is being used, eat steroid, and indulged with sex. The MC also killed someone. Woa, this WN is go to dark direction.

    Coming from manga version, i thought this story will be full of misunderstood comedy & light hearted story. But, the dark direction intrigues me.

  32. Psst. Rei. Do you read Nidome no jinsei wo isekai de? If you do, I found a good character that you could do a comparison of this trash with. In the chapters to come 勇者と女神らしい to be precise, someone beside the MC meets a megami (note: not kami), let’s just say, it makes it hard to compare who is worse. Also, sorry about writing it here, I don’t know how to send a PM or something of the like over wordpress, and I don’t wanna send you a email since those are usually supposed to maybe be used for things that might be a bit more important than such things.

  33. i don’t understand the hate this guy gets. he’s your average male teenager, wanting a harem, be the most powerful, selfishly concept we all had. now the brainwash is he even aware that its happening or does he assume that people are drawn to him because his looks(like his previous life). if he’s knowing using it then its bad but not evil. now regarding the12yr., old modern society treats anyone under 20 as immature but just few centuries ago by 13 you was considered adult, have your own family, business, and would be sent to war. actually that hero chick bothers me more, shes basically been given everything in her previous life and never known harshness until mio kicked her ass now shes obsessed on beating her. the mc is little annoying how he doesn’t seem realise how half-ass he’s doing things, what is he trying accomplish? is he going focus on being merchant why he has no need for money. what type of world does he want in mist town? hows he going to get stronger. why doesn’t he try to learn use or hide his power instead rely on rings? i hope author starts get direction cause right now its going everywhere..

    1. I personally dislike Tomoki not because how he’s using that power, (I’d probably do something similar), but because he’s not thinking as he uses it. Every powerful gift is also a curse, combined with his past experiences, he has become too confident in his power. He’s blind to the fact that he has no hold over the royals. Among other things.

  34. Some of the people who read this are naive. That is why.

    This male hero is only 13 years old as well and he has an actual Yandere in his harem while Makoto only gets a Baka Yandere. They are just jealous because Makoto is likely gonna remain a permavirgin.

    Makoto is the normalfag these commenters in this thread are always bashing on. Makoto never got bullied, actually joined a school club, actually received a confession from a girl, and had a normal active school and social life.

    Meanwhile, Tomoki is 13 years old and hasn’t attended highschool yet, became a shut in, never had a male friend because the guys in class were always jealous of him, and got bullied by girls.

    Makoto ain’t exactly a great protagonist, either. Despite being 17 years old, he made more stupid mistakes than a 13 year old like Tomoki.

  35. Lily is rotten to the core lol. But she kinda reminds me of Makoto, just that he shields himself under the image of his justice and ways of doing things, while Lily is more straightforward. Good chapter, finally one good chapter about the heroes!

  36. I have to say, I am tired of all these idiotic characters who think introducing a magic world to modern technology. It is not going to end well, personally i hope the MC wipes out the whole empire, and gets refered to as a demon god

  37. how in the world did she even know the existence of guns? did the hero told her? how did they know how to make it even?

    lol queen-managed-harem-for-the-king. would be good if this tomoki guy know of her plan and somehow able to use his eye against her. maybe ask for the goddess to give it even more power to bypass the immunity?

  38. There was a fair amount of grammar and spelling errors in this chapter, seemed more than some other chapters. All these chapters need proofreading.

  39. Thanks for the chapter. The Fake (Tomoki) makes me rezlly think of Tact in Tate no yuusha, juste a puppet who was given the titke hero and a harem with girls that are somehow too dulmb. Meh might take in account that he used his demonic eye on them but reqlly even touching the 12 years old one >_<

  40. seriously? guns? tell me, in an area with extremely EXTREMELY strict gun laws like japan. where would a 15 year old japanese boy concerned with the bullying girls and boys do to him everyday get the chance to observe guns and ammo to the extent of being able to give them an advantage in a war? at best he could tell them, metal pipe, explosive powder, projectile, and fuse. and they probably already have something similar to cannons anyway so any decent development of weapons would be hundreds of years in the making. he isnt gun otaku whos main goal in life was to make guns before he died so he studied them with a passion.

    1. EXACTLY 👍

      Just because you touch guns on regular basis(Like in US), it doesn’t instantly make you a decent GunSmith or GunDesigner … You need other Skillsets to actualy made one, especially true if you want to make a GOOD one.

      Now, we got 12/13 y.o. shut-in that only knew guns by it’s looks, from movies, games or whatever.
      The best he could achieve is ModelGun, Not a SAFE-ACTION-Pis* … Ehem SAFE-Functional-Firearm.
      (Only Godde … Ehem “Bugs” know how many Hyumans will injure their hands due to This Hero Guns ‘Explode in your Face’ in the future)

      On the other hand, MC/Makoto got a little bit of understanding of how a fiream/Gun works … So MC is slightly ahead of this Gritonian Hero in Firearms Development.

      *Hope someone here know this reference :3

  41. thanks for the chapter, why the hate on the goddess? there’s this one chapter telling that the goddess is forced to act cold towards MC by her father. maybe because the supreme god want to make a power bigger than demons and hyumans? like a utopia where “newcomer inhabitants and old inhabitants” gets along together?

  42. I see lot of stories treat Guns/Firearms like this.

    1.) Arm People with Guns = Invicible

    Meanwhile… (Taken from Poorly Trained and Poorly Disclipined conscript/rebel/insurgent/shooter in Real Life)

    2.) Arm People with Guns = Many people got killed by FriendlyFire or Negligent/UnIntentional Discharge

    That guns cons will outweight is pros, unless someone teach them the “art of gun-fighting” … and that art is culmination of Lessons Learned(Especially Bad Experiences) for Hundred Years.

  43. “Guns. That is the kind of name it had. I have to hurry I make them” (Lily)
    the thing that Makoto feared was happening!

  44. I always want to vomit when I see the trash and remember the girls with him, is just to dusgusting to me. I also always detested the idea of Lily about create guns, I simple hate them in fantasy so I want his plan to be utterly destroyed by Makoto.
