Chapter 76: Something not that far in the past to call it a recollection

“Oooori~aaaa!”

“Wa?!”

Without adjusting the magic power, I take out all that I could and with no aria I release it to the front.

The magic power amount that can’t even be called magic, had turned into quite the shock wave, closing in onto them. Well, releasing it without thinking anything is its strongest point.

Seems it took them completely off guard, Sofia and Lancer get blown off vigorously. Hmph, me being weakened is something that you yourself thought I was. Life doesn’t always go your way.

The wall and the glittering edges that Lancer created were also blown away splendidly. My circumference and front get shaved off by the raging shock wave and in an instant everything in my field of vision is gradually destroyed.

If I were fighting with a hyuman on the level of the people I have met, this would be the part where I escape, but these two, especially Sofia, are existences I don’t understand. I want to clearly confirm that they are in a state they can’t fight back and then open the gate.

Nevertheless…

Just like when one does a big stretch at the time one wakes up, just like after you do a careful stretch; the whole of my body is enveloped in that comfortable sensation. My mood is also being somewhat uplifted. Maybe it is because I have taken off all my rings and am now in a natural state. Even if my coat is still taking big part of my magic power, there is a big difference in the magic power I can release and knit. Well, if I think of my maximum value, this amount is still low though.

I spread a strengthening and search [Sakai] at the same time. The strengthened searching ability lets me check the state of the two that have taken their distance from me once again.

However, don’t misunderstand. I don’t have the ability to fight those two at close range. Even if I am being protected by an enhanced defense, there is no point if I don’t escape. That is the combi of a dragon killer and a supreme dragon, there is no way I can let them inside Asora. I can’t let my uplifted emotions take over my actions.

Conclusion.

I will have you guys receive my long distance bombarding! And so, after leaving you powerless, or in the worst case kill you, I will escape!

My left hand is like this, so I can’t use it. The complexion is slowly getting worse. Shooting energy magic is the most it can manage right now. Pointing my hand helps a lot in the image. It is decided, my left hand will be used for spells. And so, in my right hand I now have an unshapely dagger that has a string coming out from its handle. That it is until now that I am able to use them, shows that it is not fit to be used in real combat yet. Anyways, this could be called the physical form of my negative thought patterns about running and protecting.

Uchine <打根>, is what this weapon is called. The way of using it was taught by my sensei, so at that time against Mio I was able to use a dagger properly.Dane

At close range I use a dagger. Middle-range, a counterweighted sickle and chain and at long range, this is the weapon. It is a weapon that you throw at your opponent. Of course, it a weapon that is filled with problems to use as my main weapon. For me as well, as a person that had learned the bow from sensei, this is also just something that she taught me to use as well. Before she taught me I didn’t even know it existed. It can also be placed in a bow as an arrow and shot that way. However, I don’t have a bow at hand so there is no point. Also, not only do I not have much experience in using it as a spear, I don’t even have a passing grade on using it as a dagger or throwing tool. To swing it with the string is totally out of my field of expertise. Geez, it is obvious I will get wounded doing something like that.

That there is knife techniques mixed in the uchine’s way of using is probably because of the own style of sensei. She seems to have been in the battlefield for a period of time after all. Luckily I wasn’t brought overseas. She is a teacher I am proud of, but I would reject accompanying her to those places.

Even so, crossing swords against those two with these is definitely impossible. The armor of the Eldwas blocked that sword, I don’t think the weapons they make lose in comparison, but the most important part who is me still doesn’t have enough ability to wield it properly. Or more like, that Sofia girl is abnormal. To do a helm breaker in mid-air and then connect it with a mow down, even in acrobatic levels that is impossible. It makes me think that she is the one mixed with a cat or some sort of beast. Also, one that has quite the wild instincts.

That’s why it is fine to use them only to block attacks when needed. It is better than stopping them with my arms after all. With the special handling of the uchine I might be able to make her recoil, or so I think.

Using that as my secret weapon…

I take my stance. Just like when I shoot with my bow. That I don’t need to put away the uchine in my right hand in order to use spells is one of the good parts of magic.

This one will be different from the previous preemptive attack. I will have them taste a certain hit attack.

That’s right. Compared to the brids I released a while ago, the power of this one is different.

Just try deviating this one if you can.

Show me that you can cut it down.

Don’t think the speed and power are the same as before!

Even in this deteriorated field of vision, Sakai tells me the position of my enemies accurately. Yosh.

Like I will wait for you two to fix your stance. First one is Sofia! If possible, stay lying down just like that!

On the drawn to the limit brid, my image tells me of my certain hit. Fire!

The next one is created right after that and I turn it into an arrow. I pour my own magic power to it and just like how I shoot with a bow, I release it. This one is for Lancer.

The element is fire. It explodes in place so I can expect a certain amount of leeway in the hit area.

Even when the vision is taken away because of the cloud of sand my magic power wave created, she does a big step to the side as if she activated some sort of superhuman sixth sense. Because of my Sakai I was able to tell she was trying to avoid it. Lancer did that before too, could it be they don’t even care about the army that is at their back?

… But, that is useless.

A brid that I have coupled with my certain hit image acts just like the arrows I shoot, they all hit their target. It may be defended though, but it will definitely get the enemy. That’s right, even if something miraculous happens just the moment my image becomes reality, the level of accuracy in which it pursues its target is on a different degree. It hits Tomoe and Mio. There is no way it won’t hit you!

And since it is different from a real bullet, its homing capability is incredibly high. Instead of decelerating when trying to head to the direction the girl took, the brid actually accelerated.

To increase its speed when changing directions, that is something I really can’t understand.

Right now the certain hit is something I do with the same feeling as the bow, so hitting is still ambiguous. I don’t have definite confidence in it. Magic is still a grey area for me.

Sofia uses her prided giant sword to cut off the brid that is flying at high speed. How scary. Even when releasing an arrow of that speed it doesn’t surpass the reactions of hers? As expected, close range is not a good idea.

However, no matter if I already predicted this to some extent after watching that rapid-fire brid, it is still surprising how she tries to cut them off. Is she a genius?

Even so, the result this time is…

“Kyaaaa!!!”

She made a high-pitched scream and was blown away by the explosion. Yosh! I can do this!

“Sofia?! What is up with this power?! I can’t deviate it!” (Lancer)

The defense barrier Lancer created was destroyed and his childish body was send flying by the blast. It seems this side has received damage as well. Let me tell you this, I won’t be resting my hand! If the momentum is restored, I don’t know what could occur!

“Wai-, Mitsurugi?! Didn’t he get stronger?!” (Sofia)

“I think so too! This is what I think but, could it be… he was under a curse from the Goddess?! That shouldn’t be possible, to go all the way to bring a person that is cursed by God?! There’s no idiot who would summon someone like that!” (Lancer)

So it was the right choice to use fire for the blast huh. It looks like they are unable to move because of their confusion, but I don’t need to confirm that anyways!

This time I will go with the element I am more compatible with, the water element which I can bring out even more power. If this manages to disable them, I will be able to open a mist gate!

“More is coming! He is able to do rapid-fires of magic with this much power?! What a cheat!” (Sofia)

She must have felt the convergence of magic power from me, Sofia lets out a voice filled with caution. The last part was a complain to me huh. If it’s about complains, I have way more to say than you!  I am being abused by the Goddess here!

“Sofia, return the sword’s power to me! If it’s a fire element magic, I will manage somehow! Take advantage of his opening when using magic and finish it in one go!” (Lancer)

Sofia assents to Lancer’s words and moves to his side. Good, if the two are in the same place, aiming will be easier. It saves me trouble! If you are on the mindset of receiving my attack, then I will go with power as priority!

“Goooo!!” (Makoto)

Just like last time, I use the same sensation to shoot twice. It is clearly stronger and faster than when I used fire. I can’t expect an explosion, but if it can at least freeze the area, it will make it even harder for them to move. When that happens, I will be in a bigger advantage.

“He changed to the opposite element?! Him alone?! Ei, just how out of the norms is this guy. But how stupid, if it is water it will make it easier for us!” (Sofia)

I can tell there is something flowing from the sword of Sofia into Lancer. That sword was something that was residing in a dragon? H-How dazzling…

How dare you try to cut someone with such a dangerous thing.

From Lancer’s front, a blue shield that is stronger than the previous one is created. Could it be, water element? Is that guy the same as Tomoe, able to control multiple elements? Moreover, water?

The blue arrows and blue barrier clash. What happens when two of the same element clash? Don’t tell me it will just one-sidedly disappear right?

“Wa?!”

A voice of surprise comes from me and Lancer.

The two blue arrows stopped the moment they clashed with the barrier of the same color, or so it seemed. However, in a second the arrows began to slowly slip through it. The blue shield was being rippled with my arrows at its center. It was as if the shield was welcoming it.

If two of the same element meet, that is what happens?! But this is lucky for me. It looks like my attack will hit after all. It’s the unexpected attack advantage, lucky!

“This is bad, really bad Sofia. Please finish this quickly! That guy, are you telling his aptitude in water element is higher than mine?! If it were “the invincible one” or “myriad colors” I could understand, but for a hyuman to surpass me is just…!” (Lancer)

“If you are frozen, I will be leaving you behind Mitsurugi” (Sofia)

“I will provide you a bit more service as a foothold, so when that happens please melt and save me” (Lancer)

Foothold? Oioi, there is also the aftermath of brid you know. I think kicking mid-air swords and rushing at me is a bit impossible.

The two of you can’t move from your spot. Just obediently turn into ice. And then I will calmly return!

The arrow silently penetrates the shield.

“Yosh!” (Makoto)

“If it’s the head maybe I can cut it off?” (Sofia)

Again.

Just above me, I heard a voice.

I won’t even try and look. I reflexively jump back.

The sword slightly grazes the tip of my nose. My barrier didn’t make it in time again! The hot sensation that is transmitted in me makes me knit my brows instinctively.

When I attack with all I have, I don’t have the time to prepare a defensive barrier! Is this also a key point in practice?!

From the front of my vision, I see the figure of Sofia. Eh?! Weren’t you over there?

Just what kind of trick did you use to suddenly change positions?! This is not my miss! I was clearly paying attention to her!

I shouldn’t have shot with all I had and should have left a barrier on standby with me. But if I were to take my time doing that, the result would have been the same. Damn it.

The attention I had on Lancer’s side, I forcefully take it out and concentrate my all in Sofia. When I look closely, Sofia has already accumulated something. It’s coming coming coming!

“He reacted again! Really, what a funny specimen!” (Sofia)

What’s with the “he reacted again”. It’s because you always talk out loud that I am able to evade them! Is she taking me lightly? I don’t know if she is just an idiot that lets everything slip though. Maybe the price of having such a beast-like instinct is her brain and mouth. That must be it!

From her eyes I can see overflowing blood thirst and vigor. Without pausing her movements, she instantly entered pointblank range. This is bad!

In a second…

Sofia turns her back to me. Eh? Why at this time?

That back figure took me by surprise. I lost sight of her weapon. Hiding her weapon with her own body, she didn’t chase me who was stepping back. That’s right, that sword can still reach me from here. No, it is actually the perfect distance for her weapon!

Left. The direction she turned just a bit below. A reverse turn attack is swung. I can’t evade it! So fast!

Counter, no, defense? But using magic with this mental strain? Impossible! I am going to be defeated?!

In the middle of my confusion, I unconsciously do a half-step to the front, grab the uchine with both hands and miraculously connects with her attack.

Why was I able to manage something like this?

The sound of metal rings for the first time between her and me. From both of my hands the intense shock and vibrations are transmitted. From my left hand that can barely grab it, the sensation is dull. It feels like I will soon be unable to use it.

“… You are kidding, right?” (Sofia)

This is not my voice.

… Uh, I’m alive?

I can only call this a miracle. The experience that sensei taught me so hard, might have moved my body here. I am sorry for complaining about this not being archery or anything close to that, sensei.

Hearing the words of Sofia, I close my eyes and let my vision recover. My face is facing down so luckily she didn’t notice. Anyways, how pathetic. But I am alive! I was saved!

It might be too good to say it was unconsciously, but I can’t rely on something like that, I need to learn how to create a barrier reflexively or I will die one of these days. If these person is the strongest in the world and the definite number one, it’s one thing, but if there are numerous of those types at once I will certainly need it.

After this I want to learn to create multiple barriers and a defense magic that I can leave in place. Eh? Aren’t I just thinking about defense?

I once again confirm the situation.

Oh~. What is this?

Sofia’s sword, the sharp sword that had a wide width and one needed two hands to wield…

The emerald green and almost transparent sword blade that one could even feel beauty…

Broke. It wasn’t a clean cut. Just what happened, I don’t know the clear details, but it broke to the point that I can’t count how many parts it turned into. Not even ¼ of the sword blade was left.

Eldwas, you guys are seriously incredible. What’s up with this uchine. To think I would see the day a dagger breaks a giant sword. Why did I close my eyes again? This is clearly a tool that has surpassed the area of self-protection. Incredible, this is really incredible.

“I-I am saved~” (Makoto)

I whisper dazed. There is one other thing I have understood. In the middle of fighting I seriously can’t communicate with writing. There’s no room for it, so it is obvious though. I just noticed it.

And so, I comprehended. That I was in the thought I had stopped just before I began panicking, but the truth is I was swallowed by it a long time ago.

Not reaching the conclusion I should have and not being able to do the things I could have done.

What a pathetic display.

Suddenly, the sensation of a hand is felt on my back.

DAMN-!!

“You, are thoroughly cheat” (Sofia)

All of a sudden, a soft sensation is pressed on my face. Eh?

Sofia was hugging me closely. What… is this? Breast?

Ah, I see. The brid a few moments ago destroyed her breastplate. Tte, eh?

I somehow turn my face up. At that place there is obviously the face of her. For some reason, a wide smile.

Her body had already lost most of her metal protection, so the sensation of her body was clearly transmitted to me. I thought she would have barbarian-like muscles, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. She was more woman than I thought. Her sword gave a big impression after all.

The shirts and short pants must have a stronger effectiveness than her metal armor. Like the clothes I have.

That I am being embraced from the very front and my face is hitting her breast making me crazy must mean, Sofia is 180cm or more huh. If she wore heels, this scene would look like a kid and an adult.

!!

That’s not it! First I should concentrate in the current situation! If worst comes to worst, I will use the uchine in my right hand on Sofia and…

“Uh!! Tto, what incredible superhuman strength. So to resume, a god body in an average mind huh. Ah, you were going 2v1 against us and were able to stay sane so, maybe your mind is also tough. Wouldn’t you be able to face the roar of a dragon and its overpowering aura? But well, your skills are no good though” (Sofia)

Well, thank you. I don’t have a hobby of fighting dragons so that information is pointless for me though.

She is embracing me with all and arms so I am unable to move as I want. However, it seems I will be able to somehow release myself from this restrain. Even though she swings that kind of sword, her physical strength isn’t that much huh. How mysterious.

I am sorry but, I don’t want to stay in this incomprehensible situation where I lose my initiative. I will have my escape.

“Struggling, is dangerous you know?” (Sofia)

Her face comes closer to mine. Sofia’s voice is whispered in my ears.

“What?” (Makoto)

“Ah, you don’t understand what I am saying right. Well, I don’t intend to explain so this is convenient” (Sofia)

Wa?

For some reason I couldn’t hear the last words of Sofia. I feel like she said something really low though.

Just, it feels like the wind has suddenly become stronger. Wind magic, maybe? But to use an attack magic in this glued state, not even she would go unscathed. Also, I have already prepared Sakai and defense magic.

I confirm the situation of my surroundings. Before I noticed, the characteristic scent of the battlefield had become dim and disappeared. The clouds were looking strange. For a while now the wind has been strong.

Anyways, escaping is highest priority!

I accumulate my strength. Eh? I feel something in my feet as well…

“!! There’s no need to hurry so much, I will release you!” (Sofia)

With Sofia’s words, my field of vision widens in a breath. The sensation of her body also disappeared in an instant. To substitute it, a strong wind crashes against my whole body powerfully.

?!!!

Blue… the blue sky?!

Sky?!

I’m floating?! No, I’m falling!

“I am sorry but, I have sealed your wind abilities. If you fall at these height, even if it is you, you will die or receive a considerable damage. We will now leave it to nature and bid our sayonara here. Aaah, in the end I had to rely on his “foothold”. It will be troublesome to melt him huh” (Sofia)

Sofia’s figure was at my vicinity. She must be using some kind of magic to float. She is not falling.

Or more like, foothold? Lady, are you telling me you can walk down from here? Nonono, this is pretty high up in the skies you know?

The figure of her is steadily growing smaller. But her figure suddenly disappears.

“Bye bye, Raidou” (Sofia)

I once again hear her voice in my ear.

It’s Sofia. When I turn my face, she is certainly there. Don’t tell me, she can do instant movement? Depending on the situation, isn’t that even more cheat than me?!

Her figure disappears once again. With some sort of presentiment, I look below me. When I do so, I see a number of glowing things. That are the blades that Lancer creates, if I remember correctly. Now that I think about it, the ones floating in mid-air were not used to attack. Could it be, those were footholds? But how was Sofia able to…

I see the figure of her waving her hand. But it disappears again. What remains is one blade. Don’t tell me…?!

Sofia is able to change places with a blade to mobilize?! Is that fair?!

But there is originally no meaning in having Lancer set a blade so high up in the sky. I can only think of it being for the sake of “exchanging”.

Aaahh!!

More importantly, what should I do? This situation resembles that time with the damn bug so much.

At my dropping point there are glittering blades floating so it is even more brutal!

I am falling steadily. How long till I drop?! Is there some sort of custom in this world that says one has to throw a person from the sky when you can’t handle it?!

N, anyways…

I see.

Maybe it is because this is my second time. There was a part of me that was strangely calm. The tension that was clinging onto me all this time disappears as if it was a lie.

The one minute, was created huh.

Even so, I haven’t given my “thanks” to that Goddess bug. Tsukuyomi-sama, are you doing well?

I finish my aria. There is still time.

I spread out my Sakai and look below. Because of the clouds, I can’t confirm it with my naked eyes. From below, the demon’s march had restarted. It seems pretty far in the northeast, it looks like there is a war occurring.

The effect has been reduced to an ambiguous level where I only feel the presence, but I can slightly understand the situation. It seems they are trying to assault a fortress. It seems like there is no mistake, they are doing battle in a fortress-looking building. I can’t tell who is the one winning though. They haven’t attacked the fortress so the defending side is probably the one in the advantage. I was probably… right below here. At a place a bit disconnected from the battlefield.

That means, there were numerous battles taking place. Is it possible that there are multiple monsters that can surpass that Sofia roaming all over? I was a frog in the well huh. This has taught me the through importance of experience. Let’s properly prepare counter-measures if there is a next time. If I can’t use my magic power in real combat, then no matter how much magic power I have there is no point.

Even if I am able to think calmly in the situation, that was only because of my defense capabilities. If I can’t analyze the situation as fast as possible and move according to it, I am no different from a plank.

I feel anxious about my counter-measure turning pointless by some other troublesome happening. But even so, I can only believe that I will be rewarded by it someday.

And so…

Sofia should be directly below right? The broken sword is there and Lancer is also there after all.

Since I have the chance, let’s send them a gift.

I face below and extend my left hand. With the fingers I have left and the dark red blood that has coagulated and turned hard. The whole arm has already turned purple and because of the blood obstruction, I can barely feel it anymore. It is quite the bad state. How dare you do such a thing.

My right hand goes into my pocket. Since I have the leeway, let’s take off my clothes too. I wanted to throw them my magic at full-power, but if I do so I wouldn’t be able to escape from this mid-air situation. The strong wind that is hitting my body makes even stabilizing my stance hard.

When I feel the rings with my right hand, the corner of my lips naturally lift. The tension was controlling me and I couldn’t concentrate well, but it may be proof that I felt a gloom and ugly anger at this current situation. A clear anger that pushes me to yell and blow everything away.

I purposely pour magic power to the already saturated rings to an even farther step, to the point it was going to crack.

With Sakai I check all of Lancer’s blades at the landing point. Putting all of them in my sight, I release a brid. The moment it was fired from my left hand, it turns into dozens of small balls that headed to Lancer’s blades and probably what are Sofia’s footholds.

This one is probably stronger than the brid that surprised the two of them. Here I was able to concentrate without anyone getting in my way after all. I am in the middle of dropping though.

With this they are probably unable to come to where I am. While at it, some of them may have hit them.

Next, I take out the rings that caused a disaster in Asora and concentrate a formed brid onto it, expanding it even more.

Putting this much into it, even if I throw from here, it should gouge the ground and blow up.

I could tell that inside the six rings there was a spherical brid that was unsteadily swimming. Eat this, dragon killer and supreme dragon. This is my thanks for playing around with me however you wanted!

Those kind of things, you know, I am already filled with only the damn Goddess!

A dynamite ring brid that hasn’t turned into an arrow is grasped in my hand.

“Fools! There was no need to seal my wind element! I can’t even use it anyways~~!!” (Makoto)

Thanks to my altitude lowering quite a bit already, the amount of information I could obtain from Sakai had improved and I was able to feel the presence of the two. Saying words of regards that no one heard, I fired the brid. And at the same time, I create a mist gate in the space I was dropping to.

I accomplish my return to Asora. The moment I opened it, I had already calculated the ending as well, so the gate should be terminated instantly. I am glad it all went well.

If the clouds didn’t get in the way, I would have been able to see my ability in action. But if I were to activate it when I am below the clouds, there was the chance the brid ring that was in my hands would rampage. There is also the fear of someone seeing the mist gate. I had no choice.

Ah.

I suddenly feel the anemic sensation I frequently felt when I was a child. My vision was steadily blacking out and my field of vision was narrowing. What a bad sensation.

The moment I thought this wasn’t good, it was too late.

I, who smelled the familiar scent of Asora, lost all of my tension at once and as my conscience went far away, I collapsed.

The dropping impact that I feared was not there, and taking its place was a warm sensation of something enveloping me.


 

Next Chapter is about the disaster brought upon by the brid ring.

    1. it was on the battlefield and he appeared from the goddess’s light.
      they didn’t have time to really consider the possibilities.
      and Sofia couldn’t understand a damn thing he said

      1. raj u know its not it dragon could understand him but didnt even bother listening they d have suspect why he didnt defend himself at the start and later when they suspect they didnt bother with talking even in their last attacks they had the arrogance of being able to kill him

    2. they r like ulfric from skyrim wandering in sovngarde “i didnt know if i knew….”
      i cant even sympatyze with 2 arragont idiots

      1. Some here in Helgen call you a hero, but a hero doesn’t use a power like the Voice to murder his King and usurp his throne. You started this war, plunged Skyrim into chaos, and now the Empire is going to put you down, and restore the peace.

      1. Uh, Undertale, like it says 😛

        If you haven’t heard of the game yet, do NOT look it up. Spoilers are everywhere, and this really is something that you need to experience yourself without knowing anything going in. It’s $10 on Steam and worth every penny, so if you’re interested in rpgs at all (which presumably you are if you’re reading this story), then this game is for you. You’ll need to make a trustfall on this and go in blind. I promise you it’s well worth it.

        The guy was a composer before developing this game, so the soundtrack is incredible as well.

    1. I don’t think so… I think that the goddess sent him there so he gets killed to be honest… She never expected him to beat them since she doesn’t know of his strength… We’ll see though… 🙂

      P.S. At the end that was MIO-SAMA!!! I’m happy she stayed in Asora 🙂 … Or maybe is Ema? xD lmao

      1. I get the feeling she might be involved in the appraisal process at the adventurer’s guild, so yeah, from her understanding she dropped a lvl 1 into a battlefield, but he was ugly so it’s no loss.

      2. It’s probably either or really.

        She knows he’s more powerful than normal, so she probably throw him in there with expectation of either of the 2:

        1. If he wins, she can tell a ‘truth’ about her calling that one as emergency option (it wasn’t a lie, she ‘summoned’ him and it was an emergency thing) maybe even say something like she’ll be weakened for a bit doing so to avoid having to buff the soldiers for a while.

        2. If he lose, one more ugly thing out of her sight, and given his power the time that can be bought should be something.

        99% sure it’s Mio at the end, she probably stays in the spot where the gate will appear to welcome him at any moment.

      3. Why would she put in the effort of looking for him, and teleporting him to this place, if she expected to kill him? Literally no point. She probably didn’t expect him to do much, but she was probably desperate.

    2. While falling down he should have shot some brids towards the hyuman army as a “thanks” to the goddess for summoning him there.

      1. Their spell to remove her blessings also blocks her sight, she may feel the residual energy from the engagement ring he gave Sofia, but she won’t see him throw it. I say engagement ring, because Sofia strikes me as the type that follows strength, and he might as well have proposed by kicking their asses so badly.

    1. They did, the demon woman said so in the previous chapter when she went to fetch Io, but added that they were so weakened that even she or Io could kill them now.

  2. “The invincible one”? You mean Tomoe? Yeah, once Lancer finds out that she’s his servant, he’ll be scared.

    That was great! Well worth the wait to see him kick their asses!!!!

  3. Well, this was well worth the wait. Personally, Sofia is an idiot. She and Lancer should had run when they had the chance. Yet they are so far into the whole “everything revolves around the bug” thing that they didn’t even think of the possibility that he was blessed be a different god entirely. The only curse that Makoto suffered was the bug not giving him the common language and of course being thrown into the wastelands in the first place. Not to mention Makoto is an anomaly altogether.

    Knowing the bug, she probably just wanted him to die doing her a favor that he never owed her. And what better way to make him fight off the demon army then throwing him in the middle of the battle? As his life was in danger, he had no other choice. At least he shook up what the demon side knows about the bug? So far they think that by removing the bug’s interference that he only got stronger because he was cursed. This defeat will serve them right.

    1. The bug’s kind think that they are doing you a favor by not killing you, she is also under the misapprehension that she created that world, and has allowed Makoto to experience it. From her point of view, he probably still owes her plenty of favors for the generosity she showed at their first meeting.

  4. I have a sinking feeling that Sofia will eventually ally with Makoto, and not receive the punch in the face she deserves for not talking to people.
    Though perhaps the Brid ring will be satisfying enough?

    My thanks to you.

    1. Makoto can’t understand her at all. All of her talk was for the benefit of the reader. Lancer could talk with him, but when things started getting crazy he didn’t have much chance as he was focused on defending and trying to live instead.

      1. Nope, he can understand her, it is Sofia that can’t understand anything that Makoto says. Remember that Makoto can’t talk in common language but he can understand it.

    2. i think we will get both :3
      Somethingin the direction that Sofia and lancer survived heavily wounded and hide somewhere not understanding what happened, or used their little instand movement trick to also get into asora, where their half dead body got catched by mio and co. for….investigations :3

  5. Ha… Lenient as usual, but im at least glad that his instincts\reflexes\training kicked in.

    Regarding this chapters usage of skills and magic then. It didnt seem like he overlapped his [Sakai] with multiple fields of the same attribute. Also, it seems like he is able to fuse different fields to obtain either a new field ability or strengthen the current fields.

    Regarding his bird. Thats pretty all he knows… Bird… Anyway, his usage of bird is still a bit lacking. Because its just basic lump of element, i thought he would have better control over it. For example when Sofia hit one of the birds. It got vanquished\destroyed instead of splitting up and continue the chase. That would have been quite the surprise attack. An unblockable attack, only dodgeable. Using the different attributes of the bird was nice tho, freezing and explosion. Wonder why he didnt use darkness tho, to get to corruption attribute.

    I will edit if i come up with something else~

    1. well the first brid he use that getting blocked by Sofia was his “weakest” brid after all, since he still use the the ring that seal his power. also brid only first tier spell except makoto magic just to overwhelming so the brid become that powerful.
      the homing brid i original his spell since he make it arrow shape and release it like how he shoot arrow

      1. At the end, he had to use his rings and was quite messed up.

        I dont even understand how he could miss her. If his [Sakai] works by detecticng magic or “feel”\omniscient sight over a certain area.

        1. “missed” ? i think Sofia trying to dodge that Brid but since the Brid able to chase the target she trying to slice it like the first “weak” brid
          as for the “weak” brid it didnt have tracking feature as long you have the speed that surpass that brid you will able to dodge it if that thing come in from of you

          1. The key word is explosion and making a box or restricted zone. By now im completely sure he is able to put up multiple [Sakai] fields with different attributes and abilities.

            I guess using that should give some nice advatnages. Also, i wonder if he is able to change the field of each of the [Sakai] fields. For example one field to make the are sub zero, while another field, which is smaller, to keep the temperature normal.

      2. as far as i know, is max at the moment is 2 Sakai-Field, like mentioned, he used 1 for defense and 1 for search in this chapter. And when the rings exploded, it was the first time he ralized that he could give the 2 sakai the same attribute, which he used to heal teh Arke :p So his max at the moment seems to be 2
        And he always looses her presence because she´using something similiar to blink xD When she vanishes and appears somewhere else, he would of cause be surprised, even more when he exactly know, that she just vanished and reappeared out of no where xD

  6. “Fools! There was no need to seal my wind element! I can’t even use it anyways~~!!”

    Oh god can’t stop laughing as this part xD

    the bitch got desperate by hugging Makoto. but thanks to her Makoto manages to escape,truly stupid and RIP good luck with Makoto’s present.

    and fuck you Bug,we’re having fun already so stop pestering our MC with your bullshit

    1. would be funny if he gets Sofia as a follower and gets automaticly also right to cammand lancer around xD
      Could be a nice remark by tomoe, something about a pridefull supreme dragon beeing the slave of a slave xD

  7. mmm so doesnt matter that he is extremely strong he still cant obstruct goddess transportation, ok here is the thing how he will be able to cancel it ??
    1 learn new magic << something i think he is far away from it so he will be used always by goddess
    2nd < make a pact with the Light dragon that Tomoe herself mentioned that can teleport with light like that, with that not only he will have the protection of that dragon but also he will be able to use teleport and other abilities of that dragon probably and the most important A NEW HAREM member =3

    i really wish is the 2nd, cuz i want him to have all dragons so he can clearly create or overide the world that bug made

    1. maybe makoto get transported/ Kidnaped because he surpass his magid with Draupnir so he can fight back that bug summon, more over if i not wrong that Bug kinda high God level or lower tier high god level

  8. Thank you for the chapter :))

    The battle somehow satisfying me. Well, atleast Makoto learn how scary real battle now. Next chapter is about battle aftermath, i can’t wait to read the destruction lol.

    Sofia probably suvive miraculously. I got servant’s vibe from her (because that oppai fan’s service lel).

    1. i really don´t think, that there would be many such dangerous fights, if not for the damn bug xD Normally Suprme Dragons and people that can force them into a slave contract should be really rare xD just look at what he did to shiki, in the standard of the world,he should have been rather strong, and they had to power him up, so he wouldn´t just get absorbed xD
      So it less “experiencing a real battlefield” and more like “duel to the death, wwhen you just woke up and planned to brush your teeth”

  9. This is not Goddess of War, God of Destruction, nor God Sword This is……..WRAITH OF MASSACRE

    This is something you overbreak trying to demise Makoto into battle. It dont matter who suffer on Hyuman or Demon side, just they BOTH going DOWN as rude awakening. Lucky Makoto ending this battle not just his battle, but all battle will feel the wraith of TRUE GOD’s ANGER!!!!

    @Brid ring landed in the middle battle of Hyuman and Demon side, they saw ring in between them, then brid ring start floating and spinning around fast and faster then loop summon brid by brid until 6 of them as revolving around each other. After that, Launch itself in the sky in every side like Meteor and crash size of a castle in all side whether it Hyuman or Demon side BOTH will SUFFER in DEMISE.

    BUG, you CALL, you TRICK, and you BLAME as Goddess of Creation which give fault for everything you pay in price for BEAUTY in VICTORY, but seeing this going like BLOODY MUD BATH in BUG’s view

    *WUHAHAHAHA, just thinking about that as BUG made full of mistake calling Makoto as meat shield.

  10. Thansks for the update.
    damn I wanna know what happens next well those guys die from the bombardment of makoto i sure hope they get whipped and know the fear of waking asleeping dragon

    1. To be honest, I would have done that too. They already know he can use multiple elements, it would be safest to assume that he could use any of them. I’m surprised they were able to think of that possibility considering he had them on the ropes. It speaks of experience and having dropped someone from the sky to only surprise them with the wind element.

      1. in the first place i am sure it wasnt sealed with the same teory of the drop of magic on a full lake of makoto, but since makoto in first place doesnt know wind magic, i am sure that was abided

  11. This little shit brain mc is getting on my nerve. Even my cat has more common sense to judge who is actually stronger and take appropriate action. This mc is really close to be markedbon my ” mc with vagina” list.

    1. And misunderstanding comedy is so lame. Tilea-sama!!!

      Different strokes for different folks, this one just happens to have an easily distracted MC.

  12. OOOOOOOOOOH MAKOTO THROWING HIS RINGS!! DON’T YOU KNOW IT’S A TACTICAL NUKE?! PREPARE TO GET REKT!!! Btw if Sofia tries to get together with Makoto… She’s gonna get fucked up because bitch you messed with two girls crazy for him btw lancer prepare your anus, you are about to get fucked hard because you done fucked up for not listening

    1. Gotta love it when a vengeful harem member can actively read your mind to find out who did what to you. Seriously I can’t see a scenario in which Sofia and lancer don’t get killed. That is assuming they survive the nuke Makoto just dropped on em.

      1. *Shen drags Sophia and Mitsurugi into the mist*
        “Ok, today we’re going to have the special screening of “all the embarrassing moments you ever experienced in your life. Enjoy!”
        Sophia and Mitsurugi: “NOOO!!!!….”

    2. Tactical? The blast could be seen from Stella fort. That was in no way “tactical”. 🙂
      More like strategic level.
      Despite the hype, nuclear blasts are actually quite small, at least the “non-prestige” ones. Look up Nukemap and check out the blast radii of the common nukes.

    1. Sophia was lucky this wasn’t “that” kind of novel. 🙂

      “I’ll grab you and telepor…wait, don’t grab me there!! NOOO!!! Quit nibbling!! Stop rubbing!!!”
      *Slams Makoto into the ground*
      Sophia: “Waahhh!!!”
      Lancer: “Nice going Sophia, you won!!”
      Sophia: “Waahhh!!! I lost something precious!! I feel so dirty!!”
      *A 2 fingered hand rises out of the crater and makes a “Victory!” sign*

      😛

    2. same thought here .. but lol he was sealing his wind magic ..
      “Fools! There was no need to seal my wind element! I can’t even use it anyways~~!!” (Makoto)
      “Mitsurigi .What did he say “(sophie)
      “He said he can’t use wind element “(Lancer )
      “Whaaattt .. Why did i let him fell my oppai then …”(Sophie )
      “.Ah…..He disappeared in clouds..”(Lancer)

  13. This chapter is delicious!
    Thanks for the chapter! =3
    The TOC did not update… I was checking the page whenever I use the internet. 😅
    Whatever it is Bug, I’m sure Makoto will definitely hit you on the face more than thrice for being such a pain!

  14. “Eldwas, you guys are seriously incredible. What’s up with this uchine. To think I would see the day a dagger breaks a giant sword.”

    i’m laughing hard at this
    like, “are you sure it’s because the uchine? 😆

  15. Oh hell, I was joking when I said he would throw the rings at them! He really did it!

    I wonder if the golden blast of light was from the Goddess’s teleport or Makoto’s ring detonation? I suspect the rings, but I bet the Goddess is going to get the credit for this one. And Sophia and Lancer survived, the demon woman said as much, but “they were weakened until even we could kill them”.

    I just realized, we never really had a description of the Goddess, Makoto called her a bug, but that was his opinion of her personality, not her looks if I read it correctly.

    And I wonder who was the “acquaintance” that the bug kidnapped, Hibiki or Tomoki? I hope it’s Hibiki, If he knew that pervert Tomoki, I’d puke.

    1. It was the whole possibility of it being Hibiki that started the Makoto x Hibiki ship, as in her first POV she did reference that there was a guy she never got to talk to. Due to Tsukuyomi talking about the “acquaintance” and that part that the ship was formed. However… we don’t yet know if it was. Actually… I skimmed ahead in the raws with the terrible Google Translator translations (which are almost unreadable) and there was another character with a Japanese name that Makoto said seemed like a computer pro. I couldn’t make out if it was a guy or a girl though.

      Speaking of the terrible Google Translator translations I’ve read, the next time we see Makoto it were be in a scenario that we all had been waiting for XD

        1. For Makoto, it was like the final prologue chapter. Or at least I think it was when Tsukuyomi said one of his acquaintances were kidnapped. For Hibiki, her first POV in chapter 30.

      1. Mio and Tomoe both together is the only way for the situation to not devolve into WWIII. 🙂
        Or…

        *Makoto wakes up naked next to Shiki*
        Makoto: “NOOOO!!!…”
        Shiki: “Good morning waka-sama…”
        Mio and Tomoe: “Shiki….!”
        Shiki: “NOOO!!!….”

        We all salute his sacrifice to stop WWIII. 😛

  16. – I thought he would just wipe the floor, establish himself as a hero to the people and go trade with the kingdom.

    I forgot that Makoto didn’t actually win against Mio and Tomoe when he fought them. He really isn’t that OP in combat.
    That dagger thing surprised me, who would’ve thought those dwarf (he just happen to find) could make something even stronger than ‘the strongest sword’. Maybe strong and restrictive material is that easy to find.

    1. His current strength is so OP that he could negate battle skills considering how Sofia is 900+ only and Mitsurugi is probably only just around the same level. The difference between them and Mio+Tomoe is that since they are way stronger they can easily surmise the difference not to mention they have more understanding regarding really powerful beings

    2. Well he did win against Tomoe. Tomoe actually couldn’t win against him at all and her illusions couldn’t do anything to him either. He was literally kicking her ass without patting a sweat.

      But the issue was that who he was fighting against were seasoned warriors with a ton of experience. No matter how crazy his magic power is, he is a human. And he was caught by surprise and lost a number of his fingers.. First off he needs to get more experience, secondly he needs to kick the duo’s ass and also fuck up bug.

      1. It;s like how the main draw of martial arts is the fact that physically weaker people can will against bigger and stronger opponents using mostly technique and experience, they injured him using teamwork, experience and technique.

      2. I think most are forgetting that Makoto has restrictions on himself either through his gear or subconsciously because he is afraid of his powers thinking he’s somekind of a freak since he does consider himself normal.
        As for the so called battle experience lets face it that only matters for those bellow OP class when it comes to OP mentality is more important.
        Also please remember that the power gap between Sofia+Mitsurugi and Makoto is way-way beyond than just a level 900 vs 1500 its more like lv2000 or 2500

    3. He wasn’t op at that time, heck if he just use that “extreme bow concentration” he does, he would have enough magic to make a tactical

    4. Na he’s as strong as an ox. The only reason why he got his butt kicked a few times in this was due to low battle experience. I’m sure that when he build experience Sofia and them will no longer be a match against Makoto

      1. Its more like because of his mentality especially after his recent experience really affecting him probably due to his inferiority complex or just him applying his earth common sense in a world demon vs hyumans

  17. If the ring bird was made from a ring, is it a physical object? if so did he flip them the “bird”?

    On another note. Thanks for the chapter and looking forward to the “Ground zero of the M-bomb”.

    1. after pourin magic in the ring to the point of cracking he just add it to one of his brids either water or fire for more dettails we will have to wait till next chap

  18. Thank you Rei.
    Ah… I’m satisfied now. This is worth the wait after that last cliff. This feels like, when you get that hot chocolate during cold season. Yeah, most satisfying.
    Really, thanks so much.

    1. The part when Makoto give them that ‘parting gift’ was reaaally sweet. We know what one max powered draupnir can do. Giving them 6 exxtra juiced ones, enhanced with brids is just overkill. Yeah, sweet!

      I can already guess the aftermath. That will become a big ‘a-bomb’ level disaster, overshadowing the spider disaster even. The demon frontier army annihilated. His two enemies? To hell with them. Even if they survive, there’s nothing much they got left.

  19. What size explosion will this be? I’m guessing enough to qualify as a nuke, but not enough to create a supervolcano on the spot…

    More importantly, will this be enough to finally make our hero level up?

  20. I’m lolling just thinking of Mitsurugi’s POV. He got frozen by Makoto, then got unfrozen. 🙂

    *Mitsurugi gets frozen*
    Mitsurugi: “Sophia, defrost me when you finish ok?”
    Sophia: “Sure!”
    *6x WMD blast*
    Mitsurugi: “… not… that…way…”
    Sophia: “ow… that… wasn’t… me….”

  21. Not to sound like a douche, but I don’t think that bit of overkill will be that noticed from a distance. Because wouldn’t the ground as far as where Hibiki and her crew were start to shake? If this was as powerful as what everyone is expecting, then no one would not notice from that far away, especially after the golden light. Note, it wasn’t that long after when the fox woman retrieved Io.

    1. Yeah. But… That, we will see next chapter. Until then, everyone just wants to dream that 6 draupnir equals North Korean’s so called ‘H-bomb’.
      A mere Clay Aegis can’t stop it.

    2. I think the golden blast *was* the rings since the blast “splits apart the clouds and pierces the ground”. That does not sound like a teleport, more likely Makoto launching his MOAB.

    3. u have a point there Author didn’t think this throu

      on the other hand may be the explosion during naval and lo wasn’t hers but Makoto’s
      may be just my naive speculations tells me that Naval might be alive TT_TT

      1. … you need to reread more carefully. Those incidents were taking part in very different and distant locations. Naval definitely self destructed. The golden blast was far away on the road to the capital.

  22. ok so he did not have wind when he practiced after getting mio as servant or taomo(sorry can’t remember spelling of name)? but i don’t think he checked after third servant, also even if he doesn’t have wind can’t he make stairs out of the darkness(whatever element he wants) so that he can just walk back down to the ground so why was he freaking out? also he was told by the god of his world that a drop from a massive height would only feel as though he was dropped from 3rd story and fall and land on a mat back on earth so no need to worry in this world about a drop from a skyscraper class height

  23. Our Makoto is really underestimating the power of a full magician here, it does not matter she has a good sword and is good at close combat, a full magician with a good defense and a loot of mana, like makoto, can destroy anything in his path. But i understand it, he was teleported out of nowhere and attacked before he could understand anything, also he have not had any magic instructor until now, he just have a loot of magic power and don`t know how to skillfully use it to kill someone.

  24. Hey Reigokai,

    I made an epub for your translation and I wanted to ask if I can put it up ony my site or/and if you want to create a tab here for all your fans.
    I wont post any links without permission but I would be grateful if you could contact me on reddit if possible. You´ll find me there under the username eCookie

    Thanks & I appreciate your translation (also a huge fan)

      1. Tomoe, that is low (the dress too), distract the enemy with oppai, then hit them.

        Tomoe: “Waka-sama, why is every enemy I meet trying to pull the bottom of my kimono?”
        Makoto: *cough…* “Who knows?” *quietly wishes for the next enemy to succeed*.

        🙂

  25. no hand, chock from kidnap and batlefield, killer aura never felt before, blood loss, low exp in REAL combat, lets not forget mio was insane and tomoe dont fight with hands but magic here, so yeah he did very good to someone with so low chances of surviving, the godness worked hard here, he win the demon army retreat savingher hyumans, he lose, she can finally get him out of her planet, but i do hope the “nukes” did some extra damage to the hyuman army, like the 2 army got heavy damage and were forced to retreat or something like that.

    1. As much as I love this comment (trust me, as a Fallout fan I do), you need to take another look at the final chapter before Makoto came back. Everyone noticed the golden light, but neither Io or Hibiki noticed the M-bombs.

      1. I think the golden blast WAS the rings detonating. I’m a bit doubtful if the teleport had the effect of “splitting the sky and cracking the earth” unless you really, really want a flashy entrance. And I doubt Makoto was so out of it that he would fail to see that he teleported into ground zero of a blast zone.

        1. Well, we will know in the next chapter. I take it that you started on Fallout 4? Actually seeing the nukes in action was one of the biggest surprises. I just don’t expect it to be anything like that.

  26. Guys don’t forget that the real villain here is the bug,meaning that she sucessfully used Makoto to deal with here problem while hurting him at the same time,and planted distrust and hate in him and the other side meaning it’s not likely they well join hands for now.

    1. I thought that she was just trying to use him as a stall target for her army to escape. She didn’t know how strong he is at all, the only thing she knew was that he has a high mana capacity. She was probably just expecting the demon army to hesitate with his mana aura and then kill him after but it ended up with him nuking the whole battlefield. So it wasn’t a complete loss as she will probably think twice about messing with him now that she does know how powerful he is/could be.

      1. It’s more worrying if she *did* notice. He’s still not up to the level of being able to take her head on yet, she might decide to bump him off early if she thought he was getting too powerful.

      2. Most people would hesitate after seeing that, she’s the type where any fear quickly becomes anger. If she saw this, she’ll decide to just kill him.

  27. Such a great chapter! Really want to see the aftermath now. And i also have to disagree with something in this chapter. Mio could probably dodge those brid arrows makoto fire, she just didnt dodge. She’s a closet masochist afterall. XD

    1. I’m not sure if they will get caught in the blast. This is practically their only army left after the ambush at Stella and Lily using the survivors as meat shields for her own army. If they were gone, Limia won’t have any armed forces left except for the leftovers from Fort Stella and those are both support troops and not many left after being thrown to the demons by Lily.

  28. I knew it. The date of this chapter’s posting changed from 24th to 25th! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA….that means Wednesday is the next update…sigh.

  29. Thanks for the chapter. In all honestly those two were pissing me off more then the goddess for being so unreasonable. I mean with the goddess its like you can’t blame a stupid person for being stupid but those two were just annoying and they had no excuse besides being unreasonable.

  30. weve dropped the A bomb, we’ve dropped the H-bomb, now its time to drop the M-bomb hahaha, cant wait to read about sofia and miturugi shatting themselves

  31. I think , MAKOTO cannot use the wild element , at all , BECAUSE he is ‘cursed’ by the goddess , ‘ THAT BUG ‘ , when they met for the first time . Do you all remember , when he came into this world , that he had been thrown from a very high height in the sky , I think aside from the language curse , she also cursed him and sealing his wind element , so that he will accidentally die from that height and no one will blame her and she could justify her innocence to other gods that , why did she picked up other hero’s aside from him , because the MC cannot even use magic to save himself , while in the sky.
    THANKS FOR THE LATEST CHAPTER , IT IS REALLY AWESOME and MIND BLOWING.
    THANK YOU VERY MUCH , ‘REIGO-SAN’ thanks for hard work and I APPRECIATE that you translate this , KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK and translate all the chapters of this NOVEL , pretty PLEASE

    1. Actually neel, he would not have died even if he hit the ground, Tsukuyomi confirmed it in Prologue 3. It’s just stressful, not harmful. It would have been like “jumping from the 2nd floor onto a mat”. I don’t think the bug would have bothered. She is indifferent to him, not antagonistic. To be antagonistic, you have to actually care. The bug doesn’t.

  32. AND I AM 100% SURE THAT THE ONE , WHO CAUGHT MAKOTO , while he was falling to the ground in ASORA is MIO , our beloved MIO.

  33. The wind element curse is definitely THE WORK OF THAT DAMM goddess ‘BUGS’ doing , I am sure about it .

  34. I think MAKOTO will get contracted to that ‘MYRIAD DRAGON of seven colors TO ESCAPE that bug goddess instant teleportation to any where and at any time.
    AND one who bring that DRAGON , by beating into black and blue is OUR TOMOE , remember that , right now ‘shiki’ is at the academy town , submitting MAKOTO’S papers for the admission into the academy , TOMOE went to the MYRIAD DRAGON to have a talk about this incident and the only one who is left in the ASORA , who is powerful enough to catch a falling person from the sky is our MIO.

  35. SO , ‘SHIKI’ is going to submitt the papers before returning and ‘TOMOE will drag THAT myriad dragon into the ASORA later and ‘MIO’ will try her utmost best to heal MAKOTO’S injuries with her body and soul.
    AND as for demons , I think ‘SOFIA & LANCER’ will be in a unconscious state for a few days or even weeks with heavy wounds all OVER there body(because , the only ones from demon army , who knows the identity of MAKOTO as a RAIDOU the merchant, are these two and if they were conscious then it will be huge problem raidou the merchant and his company by demons lurking into towns in disguise , xd), and the FOR the demon army & hyuuman army , you all know what would happen , every one turned into simthrens or ahes or dust particles , lol , xd

  36. @ OWL , friend , you maybe right BUT i think that bug does not of his physical properties are that tough that he could withstand that impact , AS she is not a goddess of his world AND considering her connection WITH TSUKUYOMI , i think he would not have told her the hugh difference in physical abilities of earth and her world , IF what you said is true , then there is no need for her throw him from the sky to the , she could just left him on the barren land , lol , xd
    this is all my imagination , but i have a unknown gut feelin and a hunch that HIS wind element might be sealed by that BUG

  37. Thanks for your work!

    Also, oooooh boy. Extinction level event incoming?

    Mako to will probably stay out cold for a little while. Tomoe will likely learn who wounded him with her mind reading powers (and free spirited approach to that whole Master-Servant relationship thing). Accordingly, she will probably tell Mio all about it and go on a rampage. The Lich isn’t capable of holding the two back – provided he even wants to.

    Sofia and Co better survive that Brid Ring surprise bomb and stall them for long enough for Makoto to regain consciousness.

  38. Thanks for the chapter !

    Now I want to know what happens next …
    I completely blame this chapter for my lack of productivity at work…

  39. Does anyone have a way to figure out which chapter is next in the raws site? It’s too out of order. Or is there a different site that has the chapters posted?

    1. From what I could tell, they are breaking each chapter down into like 3 or 4 when they are translating it. I checked a week ago and I think the next chapter was stella lake or something like that, or it may be part of the one before that.

    1. The hyumans attacked a Fort at the chokepoint between the demon country and the hyuman world but it was an ambush and the heroes got their arses handed to them. Naval had to kamikaze to buy Hibiki time to escape, but while the hyuman forces were at the border, the demons slipped in a 2,000 man strong force to attack Limia’s capital led by the strongest adventurer and a dragon.

      The bug goddess (I checked, she was actually a blond woman with emerald eyes, “bug” was just Makoto’s impression of her personality) grabbed Makoto in desperation and threw him at the raiding force to slow them down while he was teleporting to Academy Town and due to the fact that he appeared from the “Goddess’s light” and Sophia and Mitsurugi’s stubbornness, they ended up fighting. Makoto used his “Exploding Rings” as a parting gift and a distraction to escape to Asura.

      From the last POV story, the raiding force was defeated (damage unknown) and Mitsurugi and Sophia survived though they were severely weakened enough that even the half dead Io and the demon woman tactician could beat them.

      1. I like your summary.
        Yes, they’re correct but the Golden Light is still in debate; whether it’s the Goddess’s power or Makoto’s Exploding Rings, we will see next chapter.
        The latter would make Makoto really OP because the Golden Coloured Magic (divine element) can only be used by the Goddess and the ultimate Dragon.
        Also, I’d like to call Makoto the ‘Lord of Rings’ from now on. 🙂

      2. Wait till you see him throw his coat. 😛

        IIRC the coat was the main battery, just that it was using the energy for movement and defence.

        *Makoto in a duel*
        Makoto: “I challenge you to a duel!!”
        *Throws his glove*
        *BOOOMMM!!!!*
        Makoto: “…. does that mean I win?”

        😛

    1. Last arc, there was a disaster caused by one of Makoto’s rings. It was over filled with Makoto’s magic so it became very voliatile. Think Potassium + water. This is basically what he is doing now, making the rings over saturated causing big boom

  40. Ay Asora was Mio…….i only could immagine what happen……a lovely Mio with Makoto……a Calamity for all others………

  41. Umm… blue sky? I thought the battle happen at night? The battle happen at the same time with the fortress battle right?

    Anyway thx alot for the chapter 🙂

    1. In the Hibiki vs Io chapter, they did say something like “It’s already morning.”, Hibiki fought against Io all night.

  42. Oh man, I GT ahead, some of my guesses were so wrong. 🙂

    And a lot of ours were too!
    It really was a strategic level weapon, that we all knew, but boy, we totally went the wrong way in what it did!

    Wait for it. lol.

      1. No.

        In fact, I praise your honesty and passion about this series. Hehehe, next chapter must come out tonight! ^^

  43. I wish that the stupid ones (Sofia and Lancer) get a couple more brain cells the next time they try to attack Makoto. Or anyone that they dont know and isnt trying to fight them.

  44. Hi Reigokai i am thinking on trying to make a traduction blog of this novel, i would traduce to spanish and i will say that the english traducer are you and the correctors the ones you wrote at the page. Do you care?
    also i will put a link to your main page for the ones who want to read in english.

  45. With the rate everyone is hitting the F5 button, there’s going to be a lot of broken keyboards by the time the chapter comes out. I have an idea!

    *buys stock in computer keyboards*

  46. So Sophia took Mokoto a few thousand meter into the air and dropped him. So Mokoto decide to bombard them. Classic. Also are they really still alive after that bombardment?
    Second question, Tomeo said Mokoto has the aura of several demon lords should the two have felt his power and comment on how powerful he is?

  47. Ah, the classic instance of “Had to nerf a character because he had no rivals.”

    I mean, this is a guy with the power of several demon lords, who was able to overwhelm and tame a calamity level beast that the hero’s party almost got wiped by, and vastly outranks an elder dragon. How the heck did a pair of people stand up to him?

    1. A supreme dragon couldn’t even manage to bite Makoto with her fangs yet some shitty sword managed to cut his fingers when this female hero is way lower level than MC’s dragon servant.

    2. thats what i was thinking too at previous chapter lol, also he keep doubling his magic power until its close to that of a goddess’. even if he didnt have experience in war he have experience in battle,if these 2 pair is strong enough to keep their own stand against him they should be able to fight the goddess who probably never fight herself already

  48. …I’m still dissatisfied with what the author just did. He couldve escaped as soon as they said the ‘goddess’ stopped interfering. Him fighting actually HELPED her. Her fight isnt even a good one!

    1. No, they aren’t. As soon as they got to that world they were ACCLIMATED, constantly send to numerous battlefields.
      While this was Makoto’s first time. And about the escaping in the moment the goddess interference went out. No, he couldnt do that. Because if he opens it, it takes 30 seconds to close. Meaning he will bring the two unknown dangers to Asora and might bring casualties because of his cowardice.
      Also, he will be showing the existence of Asora, no matter if it isn’t the Goddess.

      1. Ooooh. Okay. *sigh* Well. This just makes me hate the bug more. Cant wait til she gets put in her place (at least I would hope she does eventually). Thanks for clearing that up.

  49. Goddammit mc, I’m so disappointed to you but I can’t stop reading because I still have a sliver hope that you will became bad ass.

  50. How did Makoto become so weak :/
    He has a level 1500 slave. Yet struggles against a level 800ish person. So very logical.

    1. I know, right? But the explanation is simple: he’s been neglecting his training, because of his Merchant BS… it’s like that strong guy who fights a weak one (that happens to practice karate) lol

    2. As strange as this will sound it does make sense for many reasons
      1 – Combat balance: Makoto is a ranger/mage, meaning he uses both magic and a bow & arrow. The opponent was fighting at close combat and teleporting all over the map improving their mobility, making themselves a very difficult target to track.
      2 – 2 vs 1: Makoto was facing both a powerful dragon and a powerful human. This is an idea of what I use for calculating a 2 vs 1 situation, someone in the 900 and another in an estimated 1800. 2 vs 1 is a high hurdle to match for most.
      3 – Though he is powerful he is at heart a merchant. He is an adventurer mostly for romanticism. He has limited interest in combat.
      4 – He was caught unprepared and his primary goal was trying to escape. With that being said he won the fight.

  51. His powers are so inconsistent. I get having him lose his senses for a bit with that first attack and be at a huge disadvantage then but he seemed to calm down when he took off his limiters. I don’t understand why he was being so dumb even after that. If he could take a full attack while being so severely limited and completely unprepared, he should be able to crush them easily without his limitations and being prepared. I don’t understand. Maybe the writer is making it so that those two people he’s fighting are 10 or 100 times stronger than his 1300+ and 1500 leveled friends/slaves. I really don’t get it but this is torturous to read right now. The MC doesn’t need to be invincible but he or she does need to have some consistency to their powers
