Chapter 75: Their identities

Apologies, it seems I made a big mistake last chapter.

The fingers of Makoto were actually chopped off. Half of his left hand’s fingers are gone and bleeding like hell. One of the reasons he isn’t thinking clearly.

Thanks for correcting this raj72616a.


“Ara, the color of the clothes changed. Could it be a countermeasure for us? Even though you should not be a new recruit that has smelled the scent of war for the first time. You are quite the carefree Goddess errand boy huh”

I ignore the woman named Sofia and prepare myself for battle. I have fought dragons, spiders and skeletons; in terms of fighting I am a bit used to them by now. But against a human being is, as expected, different.

I am fine when dealing with people like Lime Latte who just know how to make creepy smiles, but I didn’t expect I would fight against people that can create blood thirst resembling that of my sensei. If I can stay in the mental state I was when I killed that idiotic woman, would I be able to create that kind of blood thirst?

Even if I think about this and that, if I can’t do it, there is no point. There is no need to imagine it, I am already in front of the very people that can achieve it. My head is in a mess and I can’t think properly.

I changed the color of my coat into red. Behind me there is a forest. It is in my field of vision, but there is quite the distance. If I use the speed attribute, I might be able to shake them off and enter the forest. If it goes well, I will be able to withdraw from here! The red color also increases my resistance against edged attacks, so it works as a countermeasure for that woman as well.

About the hyumans… in this occasion, I will ignore them. If casualties appear, go complain to your Goddess.

“It may be an act to make us lower our guard, don’t lose your concentration. See, he is trying to do something. I feel a radical magic power convergence” (kid)

I click my tongue internally at the words of the kid. So he can sense magic activation huh. Then that means there may not be much merits in doing voiceless arias.

Even so, to not move immediately, are they leisure or maybe just negligent? I hope they are just negligent.

I was a bit uneasy about using a one shot spell, so I did a chain activation on [Brid] balls and leave them at my sides, I create from 5 on 5.

I inserted keywords on the Brids to arrange a few things, but I am reaching my limit. I want to quickly go to Academy Town and learn new knowledge. Magic knowledge that can fill up the deep precipice of my understanding in magic in order to comprehend the book Shiki gave me.

“Take this!” (Makoto)

The moment I activated them, the balls are drawn to the limit until they become lines and are released on the woman and kid at high speed. At the same time, I turn around and run at full speed to the forest.


A wall?!

In front of me there is a giant wall. A light of some sort is merging and working as a wall. Just a moment ago this wasn’t there. But I can’t just stay standing here. Luckily, the width is just a few meters. If I avoid it and advance, I can manage somehow.

I had stopped for a second, but soon I resume my running. I do a zigzag and try to evade it, that I am taking my time must be because of my own lack of ability. I want more instinct. Enough so that I can predict these walls that keep appearing one after the other.

Damn it, even though I have this speed, doing brakes all the time reduces the merit by half.

“Tch, how troublesome” (Makoto)

“Heh~ for an impromptu you were able to create this chain of high-power magic? I thought your fighting experience was the very essence of immaturity, but you are unexpectedly good. Mitsurugi, I am counting on your foothold and obstruction!” (Sofia)

This extremely strange spectacle of having a wall appear continuously. The forest that should not be impossible to reach to, feels so far now! Moreover, from under my feet a shining thing is sticking out as well. This is… a sword?! No, just the edge?!

I can’t understand anything!

I concentrate on making the barrier at my feet stronger and scatter the edges that are popping out while running.

Ah~, so difficult to run! At this rate…

I felt a bit anxious about the obstruction I placed, so I turned my head a bit in order to confirm the situation. At that place…

“Ahahahaha! This is incredible. Not only is it conceited, it also chases you!” (Sofia)

“Taking them head on would be a bit heavy huh. Well, there won’t be problems if we divert it. More importantly, Sofia, if that is a secret card of the Goddess, there is something we should do right?”

“I know! But that will be when I do a formal greeting on him and he is still alive, okay?!” (Sofia)

… It’s, not working as an obstruction. Just what the hell are these guys?

The rapid-fire Brids are definitely not low in firepower. I have these clothes and these rings so my magic power should be pretty strong. And yet, what is that?

The kid is probably using a magic barrier to divert the rapid-fire Brids to different locations. Of course, some of the blown off brids end up to where the demons and hyumans are, but it seems he is not doing any follow up for that. How heartless!

So it is possible to change the length and angle to divert magic huh. When I have time, this is a technique I want to learn. But I don’t have the leisure to observe that kid carefully.

The woman’s side is doing an unbelievable thing. She is using her sword to cut the rapid-fired brids, dashing like a keen beast to shake off those homing brids and evading left and right. Also, the numerous shining sword-looking things floating in mid-air, I don’t know if those are made by the woman or by the kid, but she is using those swords as “footing” to perform acrobatic moves, reducing the distance between her and me at a terrifying speed.

… You are kidding me right? She is cutting off the magic that is coming at high speed with a giant sword that requires both hands. What kind of monster is that?!

Moreover, she does that acrobatic-like mid-air sprint so easily!

Even though I am not the Goddess’ hidden card or anything like that!

Ah, this wall. They are swords. A lot of swords are intersected to knit a wall. That girl, is she a special magic user or something? A sword magician maybe? The usability is questionable though. Well, I can’t say anything in respect when I am currently surprised by it.

While I was trying to escape reality by thinking random stuff, she appeared right in front of me. A monster?!

Wasn’t she behind me a few moments agoooo?!

There is such a bullshit hyuman in this world?! No, is she really a hyuman?

Her skin color and looks may be hyuman but, could it be she is actually a new creation from the demon race?!

The problem is not only that she caught up with me! She kicked the sword wall, raised her giant sword and dashed towards me!

“Cau~ght you!!” (Sofia)

Contrary to the light words she said, the figure of the girl wielding that giant sword grew blurry in an instant. The girl who was in mid-air didn’t wait until landing, and just straightforwardly swung her sword at me! I expand a barrier at my front and enhance it with Sakai to confront her attack. It’s not like I don’t belief in the resistance of my armor, but I will do everything I can.


An incredibly high-pitched sound reverberates and the sword of the girl was bounced upwards. I blocked it. But the barrier was also offset and destroyed! No way, that sword. Don’t tell me that sword has a crazy property like “magic killer” or something like that right?!

I wanted to try expanding a barrier again but I won’t make it in time. Her chase and mowing is faster. To be able to do such a feat with an unstable stance, just what kind of body control is that?!

Just like how I was surprised she was able to destroy my barrier, she was also shocked that her sword was repelled. That means she was pretty sure that attack would decide everything but was stopped. To be able to think that way when doing it with such an outrageous posture.

This woman, won’t she get astonished or waver? Or is it just that my decision-making is too slow? The ability to instantly decide on your next action at a fight of life and death, I haven’t learnt that before and there is no way I will suddenly be able to do it in real combat.

What to do? What should I do?!

I place the [Sakai] to protect only my body, and cross my arms to defend against the attack coming from my left. This time I can only wager on the eldwas. To avoid the worst case scenario, I thought about springing my body back but my reflexes couldn’t follow so I was unable to do it. Rather, to be able to raise my arms is enough to make me wanna praise myself.

I can’t close my eyes. There is no assurance that she won’t do a follow-up. I resolve myself and prepare for the swing.

There is no doubt this is an imperfect attack stemming from a crazy posture. Even so, I can’t relax.

However, it seems I won the bet. It was a dull attack and there was no pain. The part that was hit only felt a bit numb. I wasn’t even sent flying.

I knew this in an armor that the eldwas are proud of, but to actually block a sword with clothes feels strange.

This time she landed and looks at me with eyes wide open, taking her distance from me, arriving at a pretty distant place. To do so many movements in mid-air and still be able to land with her two feet. Truly awe inspiring.

At her side there is the kid. So they have destroyed all the batteries huh. Well, I did set them up thinking only about defense though. Seriously, what are these guys?

Don’t tell me… heroes?!

No, that’s not it. If that were the case, they wouldn’t be with the demon army. What am I thinking?

If I remember correctly, this girl is called Sofia. The kid, I think the woman called him in the name of a famous sword. Mitsurugi. I feel like I have heard that name before…

“Wait~ that funny lump, what is it? He is way too amusing. He has ability and movements that aren’t even worth mentioning, and yet, that hardness, reflex, magic power; his standards are on an abnormal level. A mismatched pervert” (Sofia)

“I also feel that way. Even though he is incredibly strong, he is way too crude. I don’t understand at all” (Mitsurugi)

“Then provide me cover at least once” (Sofia)

“I was busy destroying the source of those attacks. Don’t ask for the impossible” (Mitsurugi)

Are those commentaries about me? I am sorry for being amusing to the level of laughing and an incomprehensible existence. Also, I am glad to have left the batteries stationary there. I think I am the one that needs support the most though not you.

“Well, once we take control, the situation should change. Ghjkop \ kkjjgf” (Sofia)

“Oh, so we are using the ring on this single opponent? At least say when you are going to use it Sofia” (Mitsurugi)

“There’s no other choice right? This kid seems to have received quite the blessings from the Goddess after all” (Sofia)

Hah? What kind of incantation is “Trample down on the God’s prayer”?

The latter half of what Sofia said made no sense and left me questioning. Words I haven’t heard before. Are those keywords to activate something? But if I remember correctly, the tools that are filled with magic are normally activated with common language?

This language is a first for me.

As if responding her aria, the ring in Sofia’s right hand crumbles. Not break, it was more like, crumbling to a state that would be impossible to restore.

Just like when I expand Sakai, a mysterious undulating sensation spreads out from the circumference of the crumbled ring.

With this… what does it change? It doesn’t seem like the situation has changed at all though. My lifeline which is magic power can still be used without any problems. At the very least, the amount I still have inside me has no problems.

“Umu. It seems it is a success. With this the tests are done. However, this is interesting. To think that the day would come when we would be able to negate the interference of the Goddess. The worldwide influence she provides can now be changed at our whim” (Sofia)

Success. Then that means some sort of effect is in place. Damn it, I can’t see what their hand is at all.

“From the beginning you and I were not blessed by it, so there is no demerit. Also, the demons and demon beasts as well. Basically, it is a tool that only has merits when used by someone that’s not hyuman. Not only that, the effect of negating the Goddess blessing seems quite fast” (Sofia)

“But the one who created this was…” (Mitsurugi)

“Don’t say it. There are still Goddess believers here after all” (Sofia)

Saying that, Sofia looks at me. Removing the interference of the Goddess? Doing something like that. Just what would that hyuman girl gain from it?

If she were a demon, it would be a topic that has high research value though.

They… don’t take their eyes off me. I thought this was my chance to create a gate while they are talking, but if I concentrate and begin my aria, I feel like I will become chopping wood in an instant and that scares me.

Or more like, why am I on the side of the Goddess? I have gone through terrible things because of that bug you know?

Ugh, the sensation of my left hand is numbing. This is bad. Should I loosen the bandages? No, that’s no good. I don’t know how much blood I am allowed to bleed. I feel like it is a bad call to worsen the situation if I end up suffering blood loss.

This is the worst. Can healing magic cure an arm necrosis? Shiki, when I return I am really counting on you. I don’t want to become a one-armed person at this age.

“I am not on the side of the Goddess” (Makoto)

Even though I know it won’t get through them, I still say it.

“Hoh~, what does that mean?” (Mitsurugi)

“What, Mitsurugi. You understood those words? That was clearly not common language though” (Sofia)

Wa? Wait a moment, that girl. Don’t tell me, she is a hyuman? This is bad, I did a blunder once again. Even though I knew my verbal expressions were fantasy-like, this “comprehension” that was given to me really doesn’t distinct. As expected of a Goddess given ability.

“Red one, answer. What do you mean when you said you were not on the Goddess’ side? You were without doubt brought to this battlefield by the Goddess. Aren’t you like the two heroes that have been summoned from another world, someone that was brought here to protect Limia? That crazy power, I can only think it was given to you by the Goddess” (Mitsurugi)

“You, you are not a hyuman?” (Makoto)

While asking the kid if he was a hyuman, I pick up the word Limia.

Limia, if I remember correctly, it is a major power that is directly confronting the demon race. If they are calling me a protector, does it mean this is a key location for Limia?

“Well, for now yeah. Right now I have chosen to take the form of a hyuman that’s all. You can talk if I am not hyuman? You get more and more mysterious. From your looks, could you be the half of a hyuman and something else?” (Mitsurugi)

Pointing a finger at Sofia, the kid makes clear that he is a different living being that has taken the form of a hyuman. What do you mean by me being a half from my looks? Sofia also called me a synthetic beast. I can’t accept that.

But this kind of situations where they tell me this things as if looking for a fight without any ill intentions, I already got used to it. It doesn’t anger me that much.

“I have no reasons to fight in this battlefield and I have no intentions on joining hands with the Goddess. How about it? Will you guys please leave this as a misunderstanding and leave me be?” (Makoto)

“That is impossible. I will have you die here. You were summoned here by the Goddess. There is no misunderstanding anywhere” (Mitsurugi)

“I just have a sort of previous connection with the Goddess that’s all. To kill me here, why is that? Because that hyuman woman called Sofia is allying with the demon race? I won’t be telling anyone that information” (Makoto)

The kid that was indifferently complying with my words, suddenly becomes silent. He was looking at me with a dumbfounded expression. What is it?

I thought it was definitely because it would be bad for others to know she was cooperating with the demon race though?

“… Hyuman woman, you say? Kuku… Ahahahahaha!” (Mitsurugi)

The kid suddenly raises his voice and laughs loudly. Did I say something bad?

“What? Why did you suddenly begin laughing?” (Sofia)

“Sofia, listen. This guy, it seems he doesn’t know about you” (Mitsurugi)

I think this is obvious though. This is the first time I have met her after all. Moreover, she suddenly tried to cut me down.

“… Huhn~ Well, if he is the same as the heroes, that is a given right?” (Sofia)

“But he doesn’t seem to be a hero. And he is pleading for his life. Saying to “please leave me be”” (Mitsurugi)

What’s so strange in that? Just, there is no doubt the situation is bad. Because the hostility has increased.

“The Goddess does incomprehensible things. To think she would throw such an unknowledgeable person to the battlefield. I don’t think she just ran out of pawns though?  You, being killed by people you don’t know and people that don’t even know your name. That is not something you would like right? I permit you to tell us your name” (Mitsurugi)

“I don’t intent to be killed. However, in these times, isn’t your side supposed to name themselves first?” (Makoto)

I try my best to play strong. Also, if possible, I want to avoid an encounter with this monster. I want information, seriously.

“Kuku, your tongue is first rate huh. Fumu, fine. Then we will start first. The one here who is swinging the number one sword in this world is Sofia Bruga. Her nickname is “Dragon Killer” and level 920, a famous woman. And I am Lancer. Well, Sofia calls me Mitsurugi most of the time though” (Mitsurugi)

….. Eh?

Sofia Bruga? Dragon Killer?

Isn’t that the name of the previously strongest level in the guild? Moreover, Lancer, that name, if I remember correctly, is the name of the dragon that was killed by Sofia isn’t it? That’s right, if I remember correctly, his nickname was Mitsurugi.

Moshimoshi? Moshimoooo~shi!

There is absolutely no reason for such a big fish to aim at my neck!

“… I am Raidou. A merchant” (Makoto)

I barely manage to name myself. However, the waves in my heart are not showing any signs of calming down. To be attacked by the highest peak of hyumans and the previous comrade of Tomoe. This situation is something I still can’t put together in my mind.

“Raidou… huh. Saying you are a merchant, such an obvious lie-” (Mitsurugi)

“Hmph~, Raidou huh. You have finished introductions right? Once again, I am Sofia Bruga. Just as you see, I am an adventurer that is trying out being on the demon’s side. And, the person that will be killing you” (Sofia)

Sofia interrupts the words of Lancer and announces her intent to kill me. This woman, just what is she thinking? If you are rising up against the Goddess, I feel like we could become friends, but why is it that it turned into killing me?

“Sofia, I was in the middle of talking. Then the so called Raidou, this is sayonara. You have seen something that shouldn’t have been seen after all” (Mitsurugi)

You were the ones who told me.

Faster than his words were finished, in the surroundings of Lancer and in my own, as well as in the sky, swords created by him were beginning to appear.

It is a situation where it is not the appropriate time to talk.

This makes me laugh. It really makes me laugh.

This unreasonable checkmate, like hell I will let it! Not being able to depend on the companions that I finally obtained, and die without anyone knowing. Like I will let that happen.

I won’t think about holding back anymore. Or more like, I have been surprised left and right and have had no chance to hold back or anything!

No matter what, I will create a chance and escape!

Blood has been coming out too much and it is worsening my state. Damn Goddess. Calling me at a crazy place. I have decided to learn a way to go against her summoning as my utmost priority. I wonder how far the Academy teaches in regards to summoning topics.

Even when doing all this, that bug didn’t say anything to me. Is she really looking? Say something at the very least!

“Then, I am coming. Your crazy defensive power should be gone now that the Goddess’ interference has disappeared. It will become a simple massacre now” (Sofia)

Ah, so that’s what she meant with “interference”.

That means, she called me all the way here no questions asked and now she is unable to do anything? No, it is because she can’t do anything that she called me here? Uh… which one is it?

No matter which one it is, how stupid of her. As expected of bug Goddess, she is an idiot. Instead of saying “I found you” say “I want you to do something”. I would totally run the opposite direction of her words though.

“It seems the heroes are being cornered by the demon general. To remove the remains of the Goddess in here as well is not a bad idea”

It seems this world has an Anti-Goddess faction. It reliefs me quite a bit and at the same time I am amazed that there is an anti-force in the world she manages.

I am a bit interested in the heroes though. Tsukuyomi-sama told me to treat them well after all.

It’s just, my life is foremost. I am sorry but, you heroes manage something by yourself.

Anyways, these idiots, they finally lowered their guard.

I feel their atmosphere has slightly slackened. They must have confidence in the effects of that ring.

They are free to believe I was being enhanced by the Goddess’ interference. Even if I deny it, they wouldn’t listen to my words anyways. They are confident they can defeat me now.

But well~ that won’t be happening.

Unlike before, I am going to “strengthen” after all.

Being in a battle stance, while feeling anger, I take off the rings left in my left hand and in my right hand. I take off all of my rings.

      1. Even I didn’t expect that. Okay… maybe I did? I had to reread to make sure when I read the previous chapter the first time because I was sure that Makoto was missing a finger or two. I was put at rest when you originally put that it wasn’t the case. This is one of the many times when I hate when I’m right the first time around.

  1. / ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ \
    |  Thanks!!!! Nepu!!!! |
    \_____ ___/
    ぶお~ん( ⊃┳⊃
       ( ( ・ω・)

    1. I think he decides to stop wearing it because people acts a little wary when he’s wearing it, and he want to establish friendlier interaction as a merchant.

    1. This isn’t a cliff. MC is going full on power mode. These guys should just shit their pants and run the fuck away, which they probably did considering what that fox demon was saying.

  2. OMFG IT’S TIME!!!
    The rings sealed his magic power.. Can’t say the exact amount but I am certain that the “limiter” is on the level of him being able to use like 40% of his full power or something, so the next one will be a delicious one! Rings off. Aura out. Monster mode on.

    1. I don’t think it is that clear cut, not as a limiter, they drain his magic power, and first gen ring could kill an average person in a few minutes from magic deprivation. We have no idea how many tech advances have gone into his current bunch of rings, he may have lost the fingers due to running on only 2% of his power, for all we know.

      1. Well, the main reason to make those ring was to reduce his leaking magic power to the point of ‘normal’ person (remember how everyone was scared shitless of his aura at first?)

        So take Makoto’s real power, reduce it down to near ‘normal’ person level, that’s how much the rings are suppressing.

  3. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    Half of his left hand or some of his fingers? If I remembered correctly two of his rings were destroyed. So two of his fingers got cut off?

  4. Oh god, the previous chapter is more dire than I thought. I can’t wait for makito gone serious in next chapter muhahaha. I appreciate Reigokai to bring this chapter today when the battle steam still hot. Thank you very much :))
    Anyway, makato need to train with life and death mentality next time. But his clumsy way of fighting bring refreshing sight, makewant me to read more!

  5. I /thought/ the finger thing might have been a translation error, but as poor as my mtl aggregator works on this author’s style I wasn’t sure. Does make a lot more sense. And thanks for the release, //rapid style//

  6. FINALLY! I was wondering how long until he took the rings off! GO FOR IT!

    Thx for the chapter, cant wait for the next!

  7. So the curbstomping can finally begin. All his whining in this chapter about being in danger was getting on my nerves.

  8. Dammit that cliffhanger.

    Thanks rei. People makes mistakes, and you corrected it ASAP. Good job.

    Next chapter makoto goes full blast huh. Can’t wait to read the next one. His techniques are crude, but his raw power should be enough to compensate those flaws for now.

  9. Thanks for the chapter.

    And o yea, next chapter should be awesome , gonna get something nice to eat while reading it for maximum enjoyment.

  10. I thought so inexperienced. Couldnt he stack [Sakai] healing field over each other and heal his injuries? From what I remember there doesn’t to be any limits. Also, as I thought, his magic knowledge sucks. He only knows the basics of the basic, nothing else. Manipulating that basic doesn’t count btw. He just changed the usage of it, making more flexible. The only reason why its strong is because of his huge mass of magic power. His methods are wasteful and he has been way too lenient after beating Mio and Tomoe.

    For example he could use all those leaking magic power to condense it, making a magic armor/barrier. A raw shield made of excessive magic to wield at all time. The more that leaks the more you just to compress it, its just that simple!

    1. He can’t heal himself. Past chapters have told so. The reason is still unknown.
      Everything else is free for your opinion. It is true he is inexperienced and maybe he is actually unable to create a raw shield with all of his magic power. We can’t asume that shields don’t have a limit on how much magic power they can be bestowed.

      1. Magic is kinda a field with unlimited possibilities~ Just saying~

        Anyway, im going to read to make a proper assessment. Also, thx for the good work!

        (Even tho im complaing like this, i actually enjoy reading this story. I just like to point out some few things that annoys me or confuses me)

      2. …..

        I’m not sure if you worked out the logic correctly.

        It doesn’t work on himself, so he should … what? Make a subtopic of magic that can’t work on himself?

        It doesn’t work for some reason or other, subdividing into more specific fields would still do nuts all. Unless the author decided it is part of the plot.

        Now if you were to reverse it and give bad attributes and it doesn’t work on him….

    2. Healing [Sakai] doesn’t work on him. Also the magic isn’t so simple, he is already making basic magic into very complicated arrangements, inefficient on purpose because he has power enough to burn. His armor is designed to draw his leaking magic back into itself, to boost its defense and special effects, but it tends to disintegrate if he isn’t wearing a couple rings…

      1. If he can change the attribute of the field. Cant he make the cells in his body work faster then? [Healing Sakai] field is just a broad word~

        I think with experience he will be able to splitt up [Healing] into different categories. Just a thought~

        Regarding the armor. I have no idea. Got to reread

    3. Makoto isn’t omnipotent. You must be reading the wrong novel to have a comment like that. Anyway, the Author is giving Makoto a character growth/development just like what he did with the the two Heroes. Makoto hasn’t experienced much fighting and only was really relying on his absurd power, thus, he wants to attend the Academy. To learn. To make better use of his given ability by his respected God. If he already knew how to do all you expect hm to do then he wouldn’t even think of goinh to school, and would only realize his lackness after this fight. But no, he clearly know his limits and therefore seek knowledge. He already said he couldn’t think straight with his left hand half blown and all, he only regained some composure after stalling for time. It was a very “normal” reaction imo.

      1. I didnt say his reaction and assessment of the situation was wrong. Obsly a peaceful modern person would panic at such a scene.

        What im pointint out is his usage of his raw huge magic power. +He hasnt learned to use it effectively. He based his research on wasting the magic as much as possible to reduce the excessive magic power.

        I dont demand him to be all knowing, but at least …. Y kinda hard to say indeed.

      2. I wasn’t pertaining to his assessment, more like it is only one of the few things covered in what I said.

        See here, you were disappointed at him not knowing how to use his power effectively and making the best of it, right? that’s just it, he hasn’t been in that world for long enough to “know” how to do it, heck, Makoto doesn’t even have a decent teacher to teach him that and all he does depends on his “insticts”, “gut feel”, etc., which is why, he want’s to go learn in Academy Town. Right? He can (probably) improve his handle of his power there.

        what Makoto is doing is based only on what he knows, and is one reason why he needs “Rings” to be made for him.

        and like what you said above, the other post, and I quote;

        “I think [with experience] he will be able to splitt up [Healing] into different categories. Just a thought~”

        how can it now apply to his handle of his magic power as well, isn’t this why the MC is in this kind of predicament? so he can grow? and we still don’t know how the next chapter will turn out(at least for me) maybe he can do all what the readers are expecting from him with his rings off and all.

        Makoto wasn’t fighting back to begin with and only “assessing”(trying to grasp his situation) the situation.

  11. Thank you Rei for the always speedy translation, and clearing the info about last chapter.
    The battle development goes the way I thought it would go; MC lost an arm. Very sad.. It’s the Jedi’s curse I tell you.
    Well, a good character development need some kind of weakness that they must overcome and in Makoto’s case he’ll need to overcome that handicap to win the battle and save his life.
    Along with sympethizing for Makoto, we get a whole lot more hatred towards Bug.

  12. I thought Archer was the one who created swords, though.
    If Archer/Mitsurugi has a human form, does that mean that Sofia has made a master/servant contract with him?

  13. Well Reigo-senpai, you have translated another great chapter. Too bad I was still in the middle of re-programming my computer when you posted. Still, I’ve been waiting for this. The rings are off!!! XD

      1. I’ll lol if he threw the rings at them and it exploded. If it’s enough to take care of mini-Shin, it’s sure to have an effect on kiddy Lancer.

        “Here, catch!”

  14. Heeee… i am realy realy realy stuned by the chara developement of makoto. Didn’t the autor wrote somethings like never trust hyuman and wiped all ? So why he is so flushered to battle them ? Even with the fact he is little bit thick skinned or muddled headed. It’s a bit controversial.

    1. I think it is just shock. All those things are new feelings, when surprised you always go with you ingrained reactions. Makoto is still rather “normal” mentally, all things considered.

    2. idk about genocide but, Makoto has grown complacent albeit regrettably, as well as being abducted all of a sudden. Wouldn’t you try to understand things first if u were in his shoes? and Makoto also mentioned he is not used to killing. Remember his first kill? He’s a normal Japanese before anything else despite not being a complete “human” he still grew in the peaceful Japan. Only a psychotic madman would be fine killing people just because he dislike the bug. If i qas him i would bring it to only me and that bug. Torture is justice.

  15. Thanks for the translation!

    Oh I can’t wait for the next chapters, not the beating Makoto is going to dish, but the *reactions* of Shiki, Mio and Tomoe after learning what mercenary girl and dumb dragon did to their beloved master.

    If they are still alive by the end of this fight, they won’t stay so for long!

  16. Thanks for the chapter!
    Though I didn’t understand very well. Did he lose only some fingers but the rings were still in his left hand or only the rings with the remaining fingers?

  17. “While I was trying to escape reality by thinking random stuff, she appeared right in front of me. A monster?!”
    I must applaud for your lack sense of crisis…

  18. “Being in a battle stance, while feeling anger, I take off the rings left in my left hand and in my right hand. I take off all of my rings.”

    Damn this is giving me the chills, and thanks for the chapter ! >w<

  19. i love you reigokai!!! tanks for the chap, sigh if i have more money i would donate you, or i can donate any amount?

  20. thanks for the chapter!

    well, at least it’s only his mistress (left hand) that was injured.

    looks like its super hyuman time! hype!

    1. remember he’s best with archery, and you need both hands to use a bow
      sure he’s still uber super hyuman, but he’s still far from his best.


    1. Yup, limiter in both of his hand, dunno how much total in his hand but what he use the lastest version of that limiter or at least the fresh one, and


      He become Super Human…

  22. Thank u always for ur great work…

    Ahahahahahaha, at least he start to serious, and what? Release all his strenght? OK. the opponest is lost cause…

  23. Finally he’s getting serious,been waiting for this,the next chap will be the best,I hope it will come out this sunday

    and thank you for the chapter!!!

  24. Damn bug. Why would makoto ever be a follower of that bug? The demon race is obviously just as stupid as the humans.
    Haha, just kidding. Not about the bug though. Bugs are the enemy of humanity.
    Thank you!

  25. His sekai can be used to do anything right? He should use it to cast rebuffs on them. Like 99% stay reduction then stack it like 10 times and then laugh at them for being weak.

  26. so he finally grew some balls at the end… all that power and just tries to run away… I understood at the beginning since he is not used to battle… but when you keep getting attacked and you are about to get killed, then come on dude! FIGHT!
    Thank you so much for the chapter 🙂

  27. the girl clearly has some secret about being hyuman(or not), maybe, just maybe a new harem member after some love punchs? after all if you think about it mio and tomoe got some love then turned on the harem.

  28. Wild ass guess: the bug goddess was interfering with Makoto’s ability to contact his followers. Sofia using the ring to dispel the bug’s blessing will remove the interference and allow Tomoe and Mio to show up after Makoto finishes kicking some ass

    1. Mitsurugi: “You are strong Raidou, that was a good match, but you’re finished!!”
      Makotou: “Er…. you feeling a chill from behind you?”
      Mitsurugi: “What is this familiar sense of dread?”
      Tomoe: “Mitsurugi!!!!”
      Mitsurugi: “Who the hell are… Ah!! Shen-anego!!”
      Tomoe: “Don’t Shen-anego me! You attacked my beloved waka-sama and dare to still call me anego??!!”
      Mitsurugi: “Ahhh!!!… no!! No neck clamp!!! Help!! Forgive me!!”
      Tomoe: “Excuse me while I “discipline” my kohai.”
      *Drags Mitsurugi off into the mist*

      And that was the last anyone saw of Mitsurugi for a few years. 🙂

      Come to think of it, if Mio looked up Io (she ate his best friend) while Tomoe/Shen crossed Mitsurugi, that would be hilarious. And potentially trauma inducing for the bad guys. 😛

  29. Demons need a diplomat man.

    “Oh we’ll just attack some random guy who says he doesn’t want to fight” –> “Why are we fighting wars on two fronts now?”

    That are Sophia is just trying to undermine the demon faction. Don’t go around attacking peaceful people!

  30. thanks for the chapter, man, next is going to be awesome, finally going to remove all of the rings,, heheh, cant wait. thanks for the chapter

  31. i don’t get why some of you guys are complaining that he’s retreating. the bug wanted him to fight them,so why would you go along with it ? don’t tell me you wanted him to save the Hyumans? also do you really expect he could think properly when he doesn’t have any clue where he is then suddenly his fingers got sliced by unknown woman. it’s really weird when Makoto is still being misunderstood when there’s a lot of chapters already about him. stop being salty just because he’s not your ideal character

    i think the only reason the bug manages to interfere because Makoto used the teleportation device which is somehow connected to bug so she changed the Makoto’s destination in the middle of Hyumans and Demons. i wonder if the ring that removes bug’s blessing also makes her unable to watch the situation cause if she saw Makoto’s power i think she won’t let him go.

    anyway Thanks for the chapter 😀
    it’s time to shut those two up

    1. Agreed, this is a setup by the bug, and only reason it works because one side seems to be rash and over confident.

      Hijack a teleport, drop some yellow dye on Makoto, watch as her enemies rush into a suicidal ballte.
      Not a bad plan, utterly useless against an intelligent foe, but seems to be working just fine here.

  32. it doesnt for Makoto to runaway because every1 should have known ALL world is bound by LAW & ORDER which Tsukuyomi-sama(Moon God) GIVEN Makoto’s FREE WILL. BUG cant command or control Makoto due to protection of Moon God. Originally, God from both world WERE pose to give bless the hero that was coming to world. However, this way done 1-sided so the SELFISH BUG play it as joke on her’s hero and it got even more trouble, later pickup Makato (who was thrown away) into the battlefield while having cursing language and addition seal barrier from contacting to any1 that was far distance.

    Bug’s bless and curse –
    Heroes’ bless + Power of All Mighty / Ring of Disperse = Weak Normal Heroes

    Makoto’s curse *x* Limiter BREAK + Seal Barrier / Ring of Disperse = GOD MAKOTO

    Well, i think the next chapter might be OP, but if power are release from Makoto’s Magic then it would likely that all world of God would be coming to BUG for explanation far more than lying tales. Even though, without BUG around, this still need saving the world as a completion for heroes to live or return (mainly it better for Tomoki to think it still fantasy dream than seeking reality harem <:p).

  33. “… I am Raidou. A merchant”
    – Makoto (2016) –

    Oh! So Mitsurugi is ‘that’ dragon. He looks human now, so does that mean he’s under a pact with Sofia? Since he looks human, does that mean he is waaay weaker than Sofia? Seems like a rolfstomp is coming next chapter.

    1. I did comment in previous chapters how a so-called dragon slayer and the dragon that she had “slain” were going to cause Makoto problems, so I kinda saw this coming. As for the pact, I think it’s nothing like Makoto’s Master-servant pacts he has with Tomoe, Mio, and Shiki.

      1. decided to go back to reread this chapter + next anyway its probably the equal pact they said before that one works either way and was what Tomoe originally planned to use

  34. That woman need to be spanked hard Makoto style ,also I hope his hand can be healed ,seeing there is healing magic in this world maybe it can be healed who knows,and That goddess is such a bitch didn’t you through him out of your domain,stfu and leave him alone butch don’t involve him in your shit

  35. OPness coming in next chapter ..
    “I used the ring but still he has the goddess blessing .how ”
    “Because I am the WAKA-sama .. hahaha “:P

  36. it is on now huh no more restrictions all out magic assault……atleast he could develop a magic that could summon tomoe and mio wherever he is in the world

  37. The heck,, Why didnt he take off the ring from the start, knowing his life is on the line…
    Why should he show this patheticness..

    1. Because he is trying to avoid notice.
      Getting rid of the rings the second he is in a hostile environment defeats their purpose.
      He tried to keep low key, and when that failed, he is now going from “try to reason” to “overwhelming force” approach.

      Hopefully removing bugs influence from the area also makes her not see what is going on there.

    2. When did he know his life was on the line? When a kid floats towards you? Nope. When the invisible girl slashed his fingers off with the sword. Then he was busy bandaging, after that, attempt to convince them they got the wrong person. So the only time he was “in danger” with enough time and reason to take off the rings was after the talks fail. Makoto isn’t a rabid berserker, he’s not going to go all wuxia Asura and kill everyone who looks at him wrong. There is a difference between pathetic and civilized.

    3. i wonder the scene when he take off the ring will be the same as ains-sama take off the ring when he fight those adventures and the girls adventurer are just throwing up

  38. From what the dragon is saying, it doesn’t look like he made a contract since he said that he was just “taking a human form”. It sounds kind of temporary.

    I wonder if they will believe him once they see that using that ring makes no difference at all? It’s pretty strange for a human to have that much power so perhaps they will just believe that Goddess somehow gave him protection from that.

    From the looks of it, Sophia being on the demon side is supposed to stay a secret? I don’t really get that, considering that she is planning to take lots of humans. I suppose if she kills all the humans she meets and avoiding getting involved directly in the attack on the town, it should be fine?

    “I take off all my rings”
    Despite myself, I can’t help but get a little excited.

      1. That would mean her power is about equal to a superior dragon. Makoto’s completely eclipsed Tomoe’s which is why she was reduced to a master/slave contract, and I actually buy that because he’s a hyuman grown where humans originate. But how the hell does a hyuman born and raised in this world have power equal to a superior dragon?

  39. i just hope this take a tate no yuusha turn and that fucking whore of a goddess gets beheaded by someone like maou or another god not MC he is actually pretty likeable like he is

  40. Wow.. next chapter is battle time mwuahahaha.

    Also paging Reigokai-kun I found the perfect word for your servant follower issue. Why not use the word companion! Instead of servant, companion is the best choice for the word you are finding. 🙂

    1. What’s the word being used for “follower”? Is it 僕 – *shimobe*? In “Tsukuyomi Moon Phase”, Hazuki uses the word to refer to people bitten by vampires and thereby magically controlled. There as here the relationship isn’t voluntary; a “shimobe” cannot quit the service of his or her master.

      So maybe something more feudal is appropriate, such as “retainer”, “liege[wo]man” or “bonds[wo]man”? “Slave” feels too strong, and in addition has suggestions of criminality in modern English.

  41. omg omg omg omg omg omg omg next next next next can’t wait !!!!!!! thanks for chapter. I want to read Makoto whoop their asses a thousand times over!!!!

  42. Rei-san, I know this is asking a lot, but please say that next chapter is tomorrow.

    I just can’t wait to read how for the first time he is going full-HAM on his own accord. Not to mention, his power-up few times from his meditations should even overwhelm the fleeing hyumans behind him. My F5 button is going to break soon….sobs

    1. Cause you always ‘lenyek’ your F5 button..
      Well, I can’t wait for next chap. also. Checking this site every hour for update..

    1. When he activates Mio’s ability, like he did with Tomoe’s mind reading ability before, the arm/fingers will heal and regrow.

  43. Rei, please say the next ch is makoto pov.
    The fingers? ,maybe he will regenerate it.
    By the way Thanks for tl-ing and uploading this ch

  44. “Being in a battle stance, while feeling anger, I take off the rings left in my left hand and in my right hand. I take off all of my rings.”
    Sh*t is going Down!!! Their reaction is gonna be pricelesss when they see his magic power skyrocket past the bug’s!

  45. I get the feeling that whatever MC does here is what causes the Demon Army attack on the city to fail as mentioned during the Hibiki PoV chapter before.

  46. Best part here is, that if the two idiots here would have listened for a few seconds, and then left Makoto alone, they would have been able to take their objective, probably easily even.

  47. You know, I’ve been checking this site for updates every half an hour or so. Even when I woke up at night, I checked…
    That’s it. This is a bad withdrawal symptom. This shit is addictive.

  48. Thanks coatl45.
    By the way, how do you know I’m a bro? With my name (yup, that’s my real name), people tend to think that I’m a girl. Annoying, but easier in the net that way. Ooppss..
    And I really got it bad. Yeah. It’s all Cliff’s fault.

    1. Hmmm. I’m not sure. Lucky guess? But I know about that stuff with people messing up with that. I’ve gotten calls from people who had my information sitting in front of them calling me ‘ms.’ I never knew that Colton was a passable girls name.😅

  49. Thanks for the chapter, Reigokai-San!
    LoL, I sorta can’t finish the comments.
    The cliff is steep and stronger than the pass few chapters!
    Time to witness Makoto’s OPness!

  50. Awesome light novel!
    Thanks for the translation, discovered this yesterday and you made me spend a sleepless night… Totally worth it 😉
    Mean cliffhanger though x)

    1. Not killing them is the best way to prove that he isn’t in the Goddess’s camp. Killing the traitor of the hyumans is something one of the Goddess’s loyal rabid attack dogs would do.

  51. Probably the goddes used Makoto like a Human shield to protect the retreat of hyuman army never care if makato itself was killed.Demons and Hyumans are the same probably,idiots!the world who read the previous cp it’s diyng and has no more than 4 years of esistence.I Want to see Mio and Tomoe in action,nothing it’s worst than a enraged girl for his beloved one ^_^ .
