Chapter 80: Normal operations of Asora

“Now that Waka has gone. Mio, how long do you plan to stay like that?” (Tomoe)

The moment Makoto was enveloped in mist and disappeared, the voice of Tomoe reverberates in the room where Makoto isn’t anymore.

But the words that were directed at the black haired girl Mio were not answered and she just continued biting her thumb nail while mumbling words in a low voice. Tomoe seems to have given up on waiting for her answer and turns to her clone, Komoe, who is standing at the entrance.

“Komoe, you don’t have to guard the room’s door anymore. Go play with the forest ogres, I will be going there later” (Tomoe)

“Ah, yes! Understood, Tomoe-sama” (Komoe)

“You remember what I told you right?” (Tomoe)

“Of course! If I cut, heal it” (Komoe)

“Good. Then, I am counting on you… What is it?” (Tomoe)

“Tomoe-sama, there is something I want to ask” (Komoe)

“Tell me” (Tomoe)

“What does “pedophilia” mean?” (Komoe)

“… In time I will tell you. Right now it’s too soon. Now, don’t let the forest ogres do nothing” (Tomoe)

“Y-Yes, understood! I will be going now!” (Komoe)

Komoe does a big nod and walks out. Tomoe watches her out. Seeing the opened door, the dwarfs, orcs, lizards and Arkes must have noticed a change in the situation, they peeked inside the room. Tomoe smiles wryly at the residents that show worry at Makoto’s well-being. That the forest ogres also came to check, surprised her a bit. Because she thought they would be firmly waiting at the training grounds. She thought she had cornered them to the very limit, but it seems they still have some leeway, so Tomoe decided to change their menu a bit.

“Uhm, how is Makoto-sama?”

One of the orcs says in a really reserved manner. It is the orc chief’s daughter who does the administration and management in Asora, Ema. She is wise and it seems that her negotiation skills were originally high, she was able to act around the other races without feeling any sort of barrier between them. A capable woman. Moreover, her loyalty to Makoto is high. Tomoe and Mio respect Ema.

“Ah, Ema huh. If it’s Waka, he woke up a few moments ago. He told me to tell everyone that he is alright” (Tomoe)

“But I don’t see him around” (Ema)

“I had him go to the Academy where Shiki is. Because it is better if he checks him in detail. There is no one here that has experience in treating a human after all. Shiki who was a former hyuman, is the best one for the job right?” (Tomoe)

“… You are right. Understood. Will he be coming back at night?” (Ema)

“Let’s see, I don’t know about tonight, but let’s have him come back soon in order to show everyone his well-being. Those dwarfs over there, I am a bit doubtful if they are worried about Waka’s well-being or the equipments’ well-being though” (Tomoe)

Tomoe sneaks a look at the dwarfs there and narrows her eyes.

“U-Unthinkable! We are also worried about Waka’s well-being at foremost!”

“I see, I see, I understand that. Anyways, for now tell the other people at the village that Waka is alright. The lizards and Arkes as well, alright?” (Tomoe)

Everyone nods at Tomoe’s words. And following her words, they began acting and leave from the door.

“Yareyare, what a troublesome bunch. However, understanding how much Waka is loved makes me a bit happy as well” (Tomoe)

“Waka-sama?! Waka-sama isn’t here?!” (Mio)

“… Mio. You finally woke up huh” (Tomoe)

“Tomoe-san, where is Waka-sama?!” (Mio)

Seeing Mio who is instantly desperate, Tomoe makes a wry smile. After returning from her trip, she is like this. The pain of her master Makoto, even if only a part, Tomoe understood it.

“He went to Academy Town. While you were murmuring” (Tomoe)

“W-What did you say?!” (Mio)

Mio, who was sitting on the bed, stands up vigorously. But after that she may have felt anemia or something, she staggered and placed a hand on her head.

“H-Hot…” (Mio)

“Fool. After doing so much regeneration, your magic power and stamina will not return so fast. Just stay there and obediently recover” (Tomoe)

The voice of Tomoe that sounded amazed. However, taking a closer look, the color of her face wasn’t that good either. And just as how Mio was, she also sat down at the bed.

“Uh, how pathetic. Even though I want to go and kill that so called Dragon Killer and Superior Dragon as soon as possible…” (Mio)

“We are not healing specialists. Doing something outside our expertize, it is obvious we would become like this” (Tomoe)

“That’s why it would have been better to call Shiki here. That thing is useful if it’s for healing after all” (Mio)

“Don’t say that. Anyways, by the time I hurriedly came when I heard the report of Komoe, there was already one person unreasonably casting regeneration spells on him” (Tomoe)

“T-That is…” (Mio)

“Even if I was able to remove the curse that was hindering his recovery in the middle to follow up on your spell and somehow were able to return him to his original state, who knows what kind of compensation you would have to take if you were to try and heal Waka alone” (Tomoe)

Tomoe sighs. By the time she ran there, Mio was clearly distressed. She even felt a madness in her bloodshot eyes, the eyes of someone that would pay any price in order to achieve their objective.

“… I don’t care about the price I would have to take” (Mio)

Even though she was reflecting on her actions, she didn’t regret them. That is what Mio’s face said.

“What a troublesome one you are. And so you are telling me it would be fine to lose an arm?” (Tomoe)

In a joking tone Tomoe asks Mio, but Mio made a surprised face and looks back at her.

“Of course. If that would heal him” (Mio)


“Even if I were to become an empty-shell, I would be satisfied-desu. Because my everything belongs to Waka-sama” (Mio)

Mio calmly tells her that even if she lost all her limbs, it would still satisfy her. Tomoe makes a big sigh.

“… You are really an idiot-ja” (Tomoe)

“A-About what-desu?! Also, isn’t Tomoe saying “idiot idiot” way too much?!” (Mio)

“To a point that it is still not enough. You may be satisfied by that, but if he were to see your deed and your appearance, Waka would cry” (Tomoe)

“Eh?” (Mio)

“Try to think about it. We are in a ruling relationship with Waka. In normal terms, we would have to absolutely follow his orders. Our movements and will would be as Waka wishes. Even so, he gave us this much freedom and lets us do as we want. It is a kind treatment that is no different from a covenant. He probably doesn’t think he is ruling us. He probably thinks of us as companions, family” (Tomoe)

“Companions, family…” (Mio)

“Right. That’s how much he treasures us. That’s why it is proper to be ready to throw away our everything for Waka, but we also have to stay healthy in order to serve Waka the best we can. As long as we stay with him, take care of your own body” (Tomoe)


“Oi, are you listening Mio? I am telling you something pretty important here you know?” (Tomoe)

“You… Saying all that even though you went and picked a fight on a high ranking dragon in who knows where……” (Mio)

Mio, with her head hanging down, mumbles these words while looking at Tomoe.

“Uuugh?!” (Tomoe)

“You said something about Root right? And you went to pick a fight with him-desu. While pushing me the job of staying here. That isn’t something that would worry Waka? Is it okay for me to report this to Waka-sama?” (Mio)

“T-That is…” (Tomoe)

“Hmph, just because by chance the person in question wasn’t present and couldn’t meet him, doesn’t change the fact that you tried to do it. I will clearly report this” (Mio)

“W-Wait. I also said a bit too much. My feelings of worry about Waka made me a bit impertinent. Umu, it isn’t strange for me to become like this. That why, you see, don’t go betraying me like that okay?” (Tomoe)

“Who cares. I am stupid after all. Someone like Tomoe-san should have her period dramas sealed for a while-desu wa” (Mio)

“Y-Yoooouu~ what kind of scary things are you saying? Ah, I know-ja. Later, I will be going to the place where Waka battled. And so, when I get information about that Dragon Killer and Mitsurugi, the first one I will tell will be Mio. And after, we can secretly rampage a bit without telling Waka… or something like that” (Tomoe)

“… And?” (Mio)

“And?!” (Tomoe)


“Umu, I understand! Also I will cooperate in compiling the videos you were interested in. How about that?” (Tomoe)

“… Really?” (Mio)

“There is no turning back in a samurai’s words” (Tomoe)

“Then, I will forgive you for calling me an idiot. Now go and investigate the place where Waka fought quickly please” (Mio)

“Y-Yes, understood” (Tomoe)

(Well, I was also thinking about giving that brat my thanks for what he did anyways. Accompanying Mio to rampage a bit might prove fun) (Tomoe)

The secret talk of Tomoe and Mio, surprisingly ended in Mio turning the tables. While doing what Makoto asked them to do, the two retainers decided on an ominous thing secretly.

By the time both of them were able to move their bodies, the sun was already high up in the sky. Asora was somehow able to operate normally.

      1. You probably didn’t read the comments last chapter, someone bragged about getting first and we all flipped our desks because they bragged. Heck, Hokaga hoped that they would either get “kicked by a Philorial or run over by a Nepu” (the second has happened to me, but not for getting first). Just read it all for yourself, you will be giggling.

        Point being, Firo has been first so many times that it only seems natural that they be first. But lately posts haven’t been going too well with Firo’s schedule (Reigo-senpai pretty much posts after he translates).

    1. I think it’s Makoto who’s gonna beat him though, the guy is creating Swords even though he’s a lancer, of course it’s the archer’s duty to correct that 😉

  1. “Tomoe-sama, there is something I want to ask” (Komoe)

    “Tell me” (Tomoe)

    “What does “pedophilia” mean?” (Komoe)

    “… In time I will tell you. Right now it’s too soon. Now, don’t let the forest ogres do nothing” (Tomoe)

    Oh Tomoe, you are not as good with kids like you think you are. Still, it was smart of Tomoe not to tell Komoe, poor Komoe might be afraid of Makoto. That aside, I guess I must have somehow skipped this chapter in the raws? And yeah, I was using the wayback machine. But still… Komoe is best loli! XD

    Speaking of the raws, I kinda like it better when the Forest Ogres are called “Morioni”. Heck, they are some of the best characters in my opinion. Not telling why is it will be revealed in time. I’m still wondering about the curse though. But hey, that’s why Reigo-senpai translates for us, he helps make things clear. All hail Reigo-sama!

      1. The powers of patience and understanding. Don’t forget, I’ve been calling them unreadable in the past. But through my willpower, I’m able to make out enough to understand what’s going on. I’m actually caught up with the latest post right now.

        Still, it’s understanding that’s the key. Like Makoto is always known as Raido by others, but those who call him by his name most of the time say “FukaKiyoshiShin” or “True”. This is including the hero that knew him before going to that world. Shiki is mostly referred as “identify” or “identification”. In chapters about Hibiki, she gets called “sound”. And for some odd reason that dragon Root is called “Belt”. Those are just some examples. Mainly it’s my gift of attention to detail that helps as well.

        My recommendation is to try not to read it at all and wait for Reigo-senpai to translate. It’s less of a headache than trying to read those clumps of incoherent text. I only ended up doing it because I lost my patience and wanted to see the future. I’ll refer to it like the ability to see the future… it’s cloudy if you can’t understand it, but Reigokai is the crystal ball that makes it clear.

          1. No problem. Besides, you would have a bigger issue if you were able to make out those clumps of incoherent text. The same one I have, trying not to give out everything that happens in the future.

      2. wow i am amazed you could make so much understanding out of google translate, i tried reading it but…..
        my already low level in english droped even more….

      3. I’d suggest watching a ton of anime while trying to learn the basics of Japanese, then right after you start reading the romaji on Google-sensei, it’s pretty good if you don’t ask it to translate the whole damn thing, and eventually you might even learn the kanji.

    1. I agree with ‘Morioni’.
      Forest Ogres gave me the wrong image (like Sherk). Though, it’s just a suggestion. I really appreciate Reigo-senpai great work for translating this WN.

      1. Well, “Mori” translates to “Forest” and as we all know “oni” is a Japanese type of Ogre. But the literal translation does give the Shrek image despite them being more like dark elves. And trust me, you are not the only one to appreciate Reigo-senpai’s hard work.

          1. But you can’t fix what is already dead. (Note: Nepu Cart is a living thing)
            But Nepu rider is ok… and alredy got a new ride… (poor Nepu cart)
                (・ω・ )ルンルン
               o┳o )
               ◎┻し’◎ ≡

          2. Nepu rider strikes again!
                 (・ω・ )

            With a new ride. \( •̀ω•́ )/

          3. Wait!!!
            *runs to a net cafe, gets on a Nepu shopping site, runs back out*
            I just ordered a new Nepu cart for you, it should arrive in time for the next chapter.

  2. so it was Mio who caught Makoto from his free fall. Naisu. woot. looking forward to the two’s rampage… or not?

  3. thanks for the chapter ……when is Ema ever going to get a human form out of everyone around the MC she is the most normal one only thing that was wrong with her was her looks

    1. I’m going to give you this spoiler because I’m tired of the subject, Ema is never getting a human form. As of the raw that just posted, she still does not have a contract with Makoto. Even if I didn’t know the future, I still would be saying it because it’s common sense. I’m sorry.

    2. Only powerful people should get pacts. Due to the author allowing a low level like Shiki who needs to wear 13 freaking rings just to fake his stats, just how many rings would Ema need to fake her stats as well to get a proper pact with MC?

      Now everyone is gonna be asking for pacts with MC due to the author forcing a way for a male to be in this pact business.

  4. I have an apology to make to everyone. This wasn’t the chapter I thought was going to appear next. I don’t know if Wayback Machine wasn’t set right or something, but it’s the chapter after this that I was referring to last chapter. Everyone, I am sorry about my very vague spoiler being wrong.

    1. I’m still annoyed how a superior dragon’s fangs and jaws weren’t even able to bite off Makoto’s body parts yet some inferior sword wielded by a lower level than Tomoe managed to cut off his fingers.

      1. Because his ring seal off most of his power and stat so yea that happen. If hes not wearing those ring in the beginning that sword should be break insted

  5. Thanks for the chapter, Reigo-sama!

    Finally, some focus on Tomoe & Mio (and Komoe, who is kawaii~). Eagerly awaiting the beat-down that they are going to give Sophia & Mitsurugi.

    …just realized their initials are S & M…

    1. Mio is in no way stupid she just spent the past …forever focusing all her brain cells on dealing with her hunger

      1. Fun fact: If one starves themselves enough, and their brain cells aren’t getting enough energy, the cells actually cannibalize themselves for energy~ Ofcourse with Mio’s regeneration it shouldn’t be a problem.

      2. Huh. That is interesting. Makes you wonder exactly how long Mio was in that state, and just how powerful her personal regeneration ability is to keep it up for so long.

    1. Also, I want to ask something to those who have read ahead.
      Rei is translating the WN, right?
      Going by volumes (LN), have we reached vol. 5?
      Or this is just the ending of vol. 4?

  6. Thanks for the chapter; it felt soo short :c
    Hopefully in the next chapter, Makato will finally go to the academy city but then again I wanna see Mio and Tomoe’s rampage as well.

    1. Both of them deserve to die more than the adventurer girl that Makoto killed.

      They are battle junkies that don’t even want to listen to you and injured Makoto the most out of everybody in this story so far.

      Shame the author is ball less and likely won’t allow Makoto to kill a named character in this story again even if the character cut off his fingers or tried to kill him.

      1. well a named powerful female character sounds like a companion flag in this novel,though there’s a chance that it would be shutted down if it’s Tomoe and Mio who confronted them. also don’t forget the bastard Tomoki,so Makoto still has a chance to kill another named person :>

        also don’t forget that Makoto is still a teenager and he still didn’t have enough battle experience,though this time he realized that his barrier won’t be enough anymore.

  7. I want to see the little rampage from Tomoe and Mio ^_^ nothing it’s worse than an enraged woman for the beloved one .

    1. Maybe the sword that cut off Makoto’s fingers were cursed. A lot of famous weapons in myths have curses that prevent healing like Gae Bolg for example.

    1. Im not sure but Did Mio cut his own hands or fingers just to replace those missing parts of Makoto afterall Mio can regenerate missing parts though.

  8. why didnt you use ‘Lolicon’ instead of ‘Pedophilia’? that Pedophile sounds so bad, lolicon sounds a bit comfortable to use in light conversation.

  9. Vou comentar aqui em português mesmo…
    Já pode ter sido explicado e eu não prestei muita atenção, esqueci talvez. Ou pode explicar mais a frente, ( Vou deixar uma pequena teoria[?] ) será que o tempo em Asora é de acordo com os sentimentos de Makoto ou algo assim kk

  10. For Cthulhu’s sake… Makoto give the girls what they want…
    For all the love they give him he shure is reluctant to respond.
    Here is hoping the author is not THAT much of a tease and the MC’s view of them wit shift from “familie” to “romantic interest” at some point.

  11. Mio Learn a new (essential life) skill
    – Introduction to The Art of Supreme Blackmailing : Lv.1


  12. So they are so bad in heal others that they have to reach dangerous levels to do it huh, could also that be added to this curse Tomoe mentioned, I think that the sword aside from anti-magic characteristic had anti-recovery, it’s reasonable considering that was a weapon of Lancer.

  13. Rereading this, Mio and Tomoe being simps gives me little endearment to them. I don’t remember Makoto being particularly notable as an individual outside of arbitrarily being strong. Despite that, I remember enjoying the series.

    I criticize what feels like shallow and directionless characters thus far, but I imagine that they are going to become more fleshed out or become more substantial as individuals.
