Chapter 108: Academy’s summer vacation

Since I have the chance, I want to thank all the donators who have supported this series. Thank you very much! ^^

Wonder if I should put sponsored chapters? What do you guys say? I feel like I can manage them now. And receiving donations and not returning anything would feel bad for me, it has been bothering me for a while. >:(

I will definitely put out chapters faster in the next week for all the donations I have received till now.

Academy Town is now in summer vacation.

In this time, the students that make up most of the people in this town decrease a lot, so the business activity is curtailed as well, is what one would normally think, but that’s not actually the case.

It is especially noticeable in Rotsgard which is in the center. Things like the towns in the area, sightseeing, and teachers that autonomously hold lectures in summer, actually gather students.

Of course, the students that attend the schools of the towns in the area most can’t compare to the students here. The teachers take that into consideration and put up their lectures with that thinking in mind. By the way, the only ones doing this kind of lectures are part-time teachers. For them this is a good chance to make pocket money. Maybe the fulltime teachers have work in summer vacation as well, or maybe they glorify the long break; they don’t do lectures at summer vacation. There really is not a single one. It has probably become a custom of sorts.

“Even if the extracurricular classes are cheaper than the regular ones… to come to school in summer vacation, that’s pretty impressive. I, aside from club activities, didn’t attend to any of those”

“That most likely means there’s a good amount of people that wish to decrease the distance between others, to reach them. From our perspective, this is a happy moment as it increases the customers”

“And it seems the Rembrandt sisters didn’t return home. Just before entering summer vacation, there was an unreasonable letter from Rembrandt-san asking to bring his daughters to Tsige”

“And for some reason, there was a letter from his wife in the same day as well. Telling us to ignore the letter of her husband. She revoked his request immediately”

A slight space of silence after.

“Aaah, its summer huh~”

“It’s indeed summer~”

Shiki and I were in the academy’s library investigating. At morning we read books here, check the situation of the store in the afternoon, and from evening to night I hear the reports of Asora and do training. There was a time where I temporarily felt disgust at my useless self, but it was also the time where I decided to move forward in my own way. I think this is most likely because I have been influenced by Jin, Amelia and the other students’ frantic attitude. They and I are different existences, but seeing people trying their hardest to move forward even if a bit, it also encourages me to do my best as well.

“Ah, now that I think about it, at the previous class, Jin seemed like he wanted to say something. Do you know anything about that Shiki?” (Makoto)

“No. He looked pretty cornered, so he probably didn’t have the leeway of saying it out loud. I certainly did feel as if he was perplexed” (Shiki)


At the last lecture before summer vacation, I had them do a mock battle as an enjoyment lecture in the latter half, but for some reason the seven of them were looking at me as if trembling in fear and after, they fell on their knees.

[Sif and Yuno also, try to confirm all that you have learned until now in real combat]

Saying that, I incorporated the sisters in the enjoyment lecture that has been done by the five until now. Maybe they were already expecting this, the students made a formation smoothly.

That’s why I didn’t say anything and nod. I summoned blue lizard-kun, a mist lizard… Since there were more people now, I called for two.

[Let me introduce you. Blue lizard-kun Zwei]

Not presenting themselves and beginning battle would be unrefined, so even though it was a short, I introduced Zwei-kun. However, it was at that instant, everyone stiffened.

It seems that there were even some that were shaking. They have already bettered their foundations and their battle tactics have widened a good amount, and yet they expected to fight 7 against 1? How hyuman-like thinking.

They thought they would be fighting only one as usual, so Jin was the first one to shout out.

“T-There’s more!!”

[Why are you stating the obvious? 7 against 1 wouldn’t be training at all. But well, you certainly do have a point there. You couldn’t even defeat one right? Fumu, I will give you the option of going all 7 against 2 or divide in 4 vs 1 and 3 vs 1]

‘You, what’s the point of even doing that?’

The students’ eyes were clearly saying that.

What’s the point? These guys are pros at group fights you know. 7 against 2 is obviously going to be more difficult. Well, it would be good for them to learn how to coordinate, so it wouldn’t be a bad idea.

“U… Uhm, Raidou-sensei? This is only for reference but, this new one is as strong?”

[Of course. Blue lizard-kun excels in technique, but Zwei-kun excels in strength. Both are excellent warriors. By the way, they specialize in group fights]

Amelia. Isn’t that obvious? Why would I bring two with difference in ability?

“W-well I was wondering if summoning those two isn’t putting a burden in your body or something like that”

[No problem]

It is actually not even a summon. I just open a gate, so it can be one or everyone and it wouldn’t change the burden.

Maybe they still had space to think properly, they decided on dividing. The team distribution was mostly as expected.

Jin, Yuno, Amelia, Izumo.

Daena, Misura, Sif.

Well, in the end, both teams were unable to win. But they were able to fight a whole lot better than last time, and just like that, the class finished.

Jin said he wanted to get advice after the lesson, so I was going to listen to what he wanted but…

“I-I will leave it for a later time” (Jin)

Is what he said with a feeble voice lacking of air and left. And so we are now at present. Since we are already at summer vacation time, it was probably not that important of a talk. Maybe he wanted me to treat him lunch?

If that’s what he wanted, then it certainly would be hard to say after moving so much. It would all go back to the top after all.


“At that time only Sif wasn’t collapsed on the floor huh. However, depending on how they handle it, their skills should allow them to enter a further step. Why is it that they are overwhelmed to such a point?” (Shiki)

While voicing out his question, Shiki doesn’t stop reading his book. It seems that he can concentrate his thoughts on two things at the same time.

“Maybe because they are accustomed? Seeing them like that, I think they will properly make a countermeasure by next time and do one step forward. And well you see, everyone is a good child, so they are most likely more cautious than necessary” (Makoto)

“The second phase huh. If they know that the strength and speed increased, they will certainly complain again” (Shiki)

“I can picture it already. If they handle it the same way as in the first phase, leaving aside blue lizard-kun, Zwei-kun would blow anyone away in a single hit and take them out of the fight” (Makoto)

In the library where there’s only a few presences of people, Shiki and I were talking about the students. The mist lizards also seem to be having fun with it, and it would also help as training for holding back. Well, no idea if it would be of any use in the future though.

If their growth is too slow, it would stress the lizards, so I wish Jin and the others good luck.

“… Raidou-sama” (Shiki)

[Yeah, someone has come. Speaking of the devil huh]

Grasping the presence that is approaching, I change into written communication. A presence I know of.

Putting on a posture where both of us are reading, we wait for them to arrive.

“Excuse me for the intrusion. Raidou-sensei, can I have a bit of your time?”

[Jin huh. What do you need?]

The ones who approached were the students that Shiki and I were talking about. As expected, they were still at the academy, and I see Sif and Yuno here too. Rembrandt-san must be crying. Even if I take into account his wife’s letter, I certainly understand that he wants them to at least return home once.

“I have something I want to consult you about” (Jin)

Hearing Jin talking in a courteous manner, I had an uncomfortable feeling. At the same time, I am surprised that he is able to speak this way.

[Let’s hear it]

“Actually, about this summer vacation, I don’t mind if it is in times where sensei is able to, can you please train us?” (Jin)

[In the middle of summer vacation?]

“Yes. I heard that you are not doing extracurricular lessons. Of course, we will properly pay for the number of times we receive lessons, so please” (Jin)

Even though it is a long period holiday, they surely are motivated. I was thinking about using this vacation to concentrate mostly on work and training though.

Moreover, they came and said they would properly pay for the lessons. Impressive. If there were high school students who pay with their own money for summer lessons, it would be pretty out of norms in modern times.

[Is this a consensus from everyone? Is there someone who wants to return home? Especially Sif and Yuno. You should have received a notice from your household to return]

Also, I find it hard to tell Rembrandt-san that I am teaching lessons to the two of them so I can’t have them return. I can’t tell him. My dad also threw a tantrum saying that he wouldn’t let my sisters live alone, even though he is an adult. I think that the affection a dad shows towards his daughters is just on a whole new dimension.

In our household we have the stupidly doting father at full throttle and my mother always had to intervene, so maybe in Rembrandt-san’s place is mostly the same.

“From our side as well, please. For the sake of the future, I don’t think we are currently strong enough to get a pass in Tsige. There should be no problems in not returning for only half a year” (Sif)

No no, even if your strength doesn’t get a passing mark, the Rembrandt household is a merchant one so as long as there’s economic power, that should still give you a pass. And Yuno is nodding.

Urgh. How resolved.

If I don’t make them return for at least a short term, I feel like Rembrandt-san will send me a cursing letter again. He is lending me a place to work, so I really want to have an amiable relationship. I feel like I shouldn’t take this offer.

[Shiki, how is it? Our schedule is already filled right?]

“No. If it’s once a week, we might be able to do it” (Shiki)


I was trying to use you as a follow up to refuse them you know?

Now the seven of them are looking at me with eyes filled with expectation. To deal with the students once a week is just…

[Understood. Only one a week, got it? Also, Sif and Yuno will return home at the latter half. This is a definite condition okay?]

“Eeh~ Onee-chan and I are the only ones who will be absent?!” (Yuno)

“Raidou-sensei! Please treat us just like the other students!” (Sif)

[No. Your father has asked me. You just recovered, so go home and relief your parents] <R.I.P in pieces Rembrandt>

I could see that two had eyes filled with resentment, but most of the students were thankful.

Aaah. Well, it should be fine to just do foundation training and summon lizard-kun.

At the appointed day, I leave it to Shiki and I once again return to the books. I have to take advantage of this vacation to the fullest.


In the time when Raidou was being pestered by his students to do classes in the middle of vacation…

There was one woman in a space of the library where general public cannot enter.

It’s the librarian Eva.

When she was told that the danger in the academy was gone, she soon returned to his duties as a librarian. Even if it’s a long period holiday, the scholars and researchers, and also the teachers that use the library still don’t die out. Since she was absent for a while and there was someone filling her place, Eva-san had to take the place of the librarian while she is in vacation. That’s why in this summer vacation she practically doesn’t have a vacation at all, but since she feels slightly fulfilled when doing work and she still had something she had to do no matter what in this summer vacation, she didn’t feel dissatisfied.

Eva was right now searching for a certain article.

That is something she wanted Raidou to read. Eva was a noble in the past, and yet she excels in her duties as a librarian. Since the time she marked Raidou, she has been remembering all the books he has been reading and tracing the tendencies of them, she predicts the things he wants to know, the things he must want to know. The books Raidou read were pretty diverse in range, but Eva was still able to make out a number of tendencies. Truly an exemplar librarian.

“Uhm, I don’t need this kind of research instruction. And I don’t need anything prior to that either…”

Researches and essays that are deemed important are normally gathered in an area of the library. Of course, there were essays that were composed at the academy in the past and most of them weren’t publicized and there were research contents that were the same, so they are gathered and the numbers are massive. And in truth, even the specialist Eva is having troubles finding the article she is looking for. She is in a state where she is looking for it covered in dust. There’s no doubt it wasn’t a well-known article.

“Raidou-san has saved my life after all. And he said ‘there is no need for money, so recommend me books’ in a considerate manner, so there’s no way I won’t do that. I will definitely show Raidou-sensei content that he will jump at!” (Eva)

The enormous reward that Eva proposed to Lime was the assets of Ansland. That’s something which lies in the land that has been stolen. Raidou heard that talk with a complicated face, and asked Eva for knowledge instead of money. For him, instead of assets of doubtful existence, he preferred a more realistic reward.

“He looked like he was reading anything, but the topic he was most interested in was the magic aspect. And it was on the magic power application and summoning. After that, he held interest in Kaleneon as well. And he seemed like he wanted to know about geography too. But first, that article” (Eva)

What Eva is searching for is a thesis that a certain professor took his whole lifetime to research and after reaching to a conclusion he was discouraged, a content that didn’t gather much attention, a common essay. However, Eva had a strong inference that this might be one of the things Raidou is looking for. She also has listed up a number of books he might want. Searching for those isn’t that hard. Rather, what she found difficult was that there were so many mediocre essays from no name researchers while she was looking.

“I will return the favor, and from hereafter I have to maintain a good relationship with him. I already have no other to rely on but him and the Kuzunoha Company” (Eva)

The ability of the Kuzunoha Company’s employees, and also Raidou and Shiki. And the other capable people that seem to also exist.

In Eva’s eyes, the Kuzunoha Company is incredibly appealing. A free company with abnormal ability. Just as promised, they crushed the organization powers that were nesting inside the academy. That the gentle Brait-sensei was one of them was something that surprised her in not a small amount. Also, not a single danger befell Ruria. Those were plenty enough results to recognize their abilities.

Right now the scale of their company is small, but it may be because they can’t do anything big. But what about the future?

The reckless librarian that wishes for the revival of her territory, she has still not abandoned it.

That’s why she wants to be close with Raidou. He has power and his personality is not bad. His company management is going well and he is blessed with capable people. His face is certainly not good, but something like appearance, one gets used to it after seeing it many times, is what Eva thinks. Even if her first impression when seeing him was somewhat bad, so what? It is foolish to judge what’s inside by looking at someone’s appearance. If the power of the Goddess serves for nothing, then what’s the worth of appearance? That is the current sense of value of Eva and Ruria.

Not relying on the Goddess. Her faith that had wavered and disappeared. This kind of people probably have a tendency of losing their attachment to appearance and race.

This is a situation that was brought by the silence of the Goddess. This present condition might serve – a bit – as a tailwind for Raidou, for Misumi Makoto.

Later, the Rotsgard school festival will be coming, and also, the sparks of war that will rise greatly.

The Academy’s summer vacation continued peacefully. Just like the calm before the storm.

For the three otherworldlers, their second autumn was approaching.

  1. I’m not even gonna try going for first.

    I’m just enjoying the rising harem around Makoto. He has the kind of face that’ll look cool when he’s older.

    A goatee would do wonders. Kinda like Mephisto from Blue Exorcist. That what his face reminds me of, so yeah, it’s a face easily possible to get used to.

  2. And so the one in the cover of the Vol is Root after all and not Lime or Jin. Figures~ Too many silver-haired characters after all.

    Also I want to see a mock battle between the seven of them and Makoto- It’d be awesome.

    Thanks for the chapter Reigo and keep it up! I really do appreciate you translating this series! :3

  3. I wonder when will raidou learn more magic. Right now he only has beginner magic. What a waste of that big pool of magic. Guess need to wait the upcoming war to see if he improve in that area

      1. In case you didnt get it, its a number, not a name per-se.

        Lots of Japanese like to use German numbers for stuff.

  4. I wonder how the students would react if they found out that Makoto has a whole army of Mist lizards, several much more powerful Arkes, a town of Orcs and Elder Dwarves, and Forest Onis at his disposal.

    1. Ah. The poor babies wod probably Shit themselves and be engulfed by despair. Oh! He should “summon” Ema-chan for magic training. That way she gets more Screentime and everyone is happy!

  6. I can’t believe Makoto threw Rembrandt under the bus like that!😆 Those girls are going to make it home, and rip him apart!😆

    Thanks for the chapter Boss.

    1. C’mon, you blame him? There’s only one Papa, but two daughters and Mama. I’d do the same and throw the butler too.

      So the practical class had two mist lizards. Double the pleasure, double the fun!

      One of the smartest things Makoto can do is to keep Eva doing his prelim research in the library. It’ll save a ton of time and get better results than what he had been doing. Too bad he can’t take her to Asora to organize his memory warehouse. She wouldn’t get hooked unless he habitually watched soap operas.

      1. Truthfully, I think she wouldn’t get stuck on those like everyone else seems to. I think if anything she’d be looking for books in the memories.

  7. And we’re getting closer to the Participation of the Majin (Devil) XD

    *Get’s hit by Truck-kun*

    Oh come on! It wasn’t that much of a spoiler!!!

  8. Mmkay I’m comfortable commenting right now. Anyway thanks for the Chapter, Kai-kun. It looks like by the time Makoto’s students when it will be because the Mist Lizards will have mastered fighting at a level hyumans can surpass. Ah, Rembrandt, you poor daughter doting fool. Welp they’ll forgive you eventually…Maybe. Also I would like more Ema, please.

    1. Well, there is someone nice, with OP powers, who doesn’t try to push everyone down… Can’t you just have him enjoy the sparks flying between each girl? I mean, the sisters will be at least 3rd and 4th wife anyway (because I bet the two female followers wouldn’t quite give 1st and 2nd spot up)

  9. Thanks for the chapter!

    A lifetime-thesis by a researcher who dispaired at the end of it? I hope that is not Shiki in the past…

    1. (From what I’ve seen) Nepu is the Hyperdimension Neptunia’s version of Rafu(Naofumi’s Raphtalia clone call)… Maybe some meaning beyond that… But I haven’t noticed it (is ignorant of the Neptunia dimension — only watched anime a long time ago)

  10. Yeah, you certainly translates faster than I expected this time, Never expected a chapter today.

    It depends on you to make a sponsored chapter style or not. I’m sure the donators donates with the intention of saying thanks for what you gave them and just hope it will further motivates you to bring more chapters.

    If you want to give something back, its like you’re doing now, more frequent release according to your own free time. you can also surprise the readers with an extra chapters once in a while, nobody hates double release, like what you did last time when the chapter suddenly ends at how the climates in Asora works. (I think thats a cheap way to make a cliffhanger lol, Author is being sadistic I guess)

    If you’re confident to make sponsored chapters then feel free to do so. But that obligation sometimes coincides with real life matters like going trips, families, exams etc. Nobody want to see a burnt out translator. You can still inform us if something happens though, shit happens everytime and we all know it.

    Those are my views regarding that matter. Thanks as always for the chapter.

  11. Wait…
    -SECOND- autumn?
    So Makoto and the other 2 shitty heroes have been in that world for more than a year already…?
    … Really???

      1. wait how this work???
        at first is makato is summoning first but then the bug say he ugly drop him and summoning the 2 hero but the 2 hero show up before makato? what this a time travel??

      2. The other ones were there before him. Bitch godess cant see what she summones from the other world not her realm as that means the already new that the other two were more beautyiful then him. The already told him that he was not nessary when he was summoned because they have already two heroes.

      3. @Ray Hero

        Makoto was summoned by Tsukiyomi and was sitting chatting with him about the events that lead to his being summoned to the other world. While he was chatting with Tsukiyomi the Goddess snuck onto Earth and summoned the Trash and Female Heros to her world. After she had done so she summoned Makoto from his chat with Tsukiyomi, told him he was ugly and threw him in the corner of her wold.

        Thus the others actually arrived before Makoto, even though he left the surface of the Earth first.

    1. Yeah, it seemed weird to me too, that so much time passed ever since chapter 1.
      I think it’s like One Piece, or better, the reverse of it. In OP from Vol.1 to Vol.60 it’s only been a summer, while here in a little more than 100 chapters it’s been more than a year.

  12. Sometimes theres that week in the month where the good wn and ln ch that doesnt release often comes out en masse and drown you with updates, it wont even let me take a breather

  13. Thanks for the chapter! As someone that hasn’t managed to donate yet, I’d be fine with you doing sponsored chapters. It’s only fair to give back to those that did donate. You might want to ask some of the donators, directly, if they would want them or not.

  14. Wish i could get excited about the calm before the storm….but sadly i cant….cause sukontoe is still a P*ssy with a captial P….would love to enjoy the harem aspect….but cant cause again he has no balls…would love to see the interactions between the 2 sisters an MIO man that would be boss as hell…thanks for the chapter anyway though

  15. Thanks for the translation! Oh and it would be nice if you would do sponsored chapters too, but be careful of your heath so you doesn’t burn yourself out. Nobody like to see a burned out translator.

  16. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    Poor Rembrandt. He’s going to see his daughters during summer vacation alright, his two FURIOUS daughters.

        1. I was wondering if you were the Jubilant Grim Reaper. We in the Reaper corps also call that one Reaper Phoenix. And if you are could you comfort the True Grim Reaper? She’s all depressed that she had to harvest children again last night. She always cries as she harvests but children just make it worse.

          1. I’m a guy. And I used this screen name since my Counter Strike days back in 98-99.

  17. About sponsored chapters no its a bad idea 1 you already go at a good pace but beyond that if something happens and you fall behind or cant for a while you will start feeling bad again you already translate at a good pace which should be more then enough for anyone.

  18. Its actually funny because this is around the time that Summer Vacation starts for most schools and Universities. I myself am close to tasting that sweet relief

  19. after working so hard for a strategy to beat the lizard at 7VS1, they see 2 lizard comming. I can imagine the despair that struck them…

    makoto is good in breaking someone spirit, and he don’t even know it.

    1. We already knew that when he spent hours sitting there, reading with 4 forest oni beating on his barrier with no sign of it weakening.

  20. Thanks for the chapter mate~

    Looks like it finally begins

    Mind:[Yes!,your lordship,System Activated]
    Mind:[Aye aye, sir! Popcorn creation had been given full access]
    Mind: [IT’S SHOWTIME!]

  21. Thanks for the chap!!
    I’m kinda annoyed that Eva wants to get close to Makoto so he can help her in getting back her territory, he doesn’t owe her anything neither does he want to do something that high profile, which would get him alot of attention, just to conquer a territory. Just getting it back wouldn’t be enough , she would be forced to rely on the company to keep the country afloat with its financial and economic needs, which would hinder the company’s freedom.

    1. You’re surprised that someone is acting in their own best interests? I’d be even more surprised and also suspicious if she were to act just because of any goodness in her heart.

    2. If his parents are family of Eva or are blamed for the fall of his country maybe he wants to get the country back not just that he could make a new branch there or become the owner of the country in the shadows.

  22. I wish this arrogant prick also applies his sadistic side to when he’s in actual combat… I don’t care if it’s just once. There should be atleast one in the raws, right.

    Damnit. Where the hell did that person who fought Shen went off to.

    Thanks for the decent chapter.

    1. He is still here but, first he doesn’t want to do anything flashy and risk getting the goddess attention. Second, the person who fought shen is still here, in the world at the moment the only beings actually stronger than him are the pervert (root) and the goddess though it is hinted at later in the raws there is another. Sofia only managed to kick his ass because he was attacked by surprise then had to fight a supreme dragon and her (who is also unreasonably strong) while bleeding out. Not sure if you have ever experienced it but, when you lose a lot of blood your ability to make rational decisions goes down the drain with just about every other mental faculty.

      Finally…. in the raws currently there is atleast three major incidents were he shows his sadistic side? Two of them involve trashmoki the final one is with a demigod he summoned that then pissed him off and he mutilated the shit out of it.

      1. and he was lucky when he fought against shen.
        Her debuff and space magic didn’t work because he has too much magic power, the mist that hide her presence was negated by makoto’s scan, so it ended in a fight of strength, and considering shen’s magic type I don’t think powerfull attack is her speciality.

      2. No, I fully agree with the fight against Lancer and Sofi. I even defended his actions then.

        What I meant about earlier was, not all about fighting. He was a bit more courageous then, than the him today. You would normally think to avoid fighting a dragon one doesn’t know anything about. He practicaly had no fighting/combat experience. But he still opt to save Ema’s future and her tribe.

        it’s like what I said in the previous chapter. He’s not going to raid a fort or destroy a town. He can erase and detect presence, and other utility magics, he atleast learned those right? from claiming to read a wide collection of articles. So really, there is nothing flashy about playing detective along with pretending to be a teacher. If anything, his lectures are far more attention grabbing than detective work. And he was receiving a mountain of marriage proposals from noble women, is a merchant, owner of Kuzunoha, sells never before seen fruits and medicines, processes exceptional swords, an ugly successful h(y)uman living in a town, yet, for some stange reason everyone thinks he is still keeping a low profile.

        It’s either the information network is extremely slow in this world or, that the goddess is a typical JP-MC dense or, the Author purposely cockblocking this issue. Usually, such store goods would reach the royal capitol by now or even various nobles from different town. It’s been months. Root is obviously not blocking his store’s popularity so no one can use that excuse. Even Sin City doesn’t have this tight-lipped people, despite having a motto of “What happens in Vegas…”.

        Anyway, good to know there is atleast a time in the future that he shows his sadistic side. But goddamnit for the additional spoiler. I hope you spill your coffee today.

      3. @geek
        He didn’t get “lucky” that time. He made that happen, by his own. He didn’t acquire that pool by being in a pinch like a hero would.

        Also, you must be forgetting Shen as being undefeated as well. You don’t simply say, Shen is not proficient this or that. Otherwise Shen would not have such reputation. It sounds like some weakling making excuse. Shen fought dragons as well. Probably.

      4. Shen was undefeated because of her magic and Asora. And of course she wasn’t physically weak, she’s a dragon.😇 In all seriousness though, it never went into it, but there is every chance that she is on the physically weaker side when it comes to superior dragons. When you have an overwhelming power or magic, you don’t spend much time weight lifting. Seems half-assed to me, but there are merits to devoting yourself to either physical or magical strengthening and not doing both.

      5. Its covered later in the raws but the reason Shen is “invincible” is not because she is the ultimate supreme dragon or anything but simply because she has never lost and the reason she has never lost is because with her illusion techniques even if you can beat her in combat she can confound you and retreat.

      6. Yes, it was already mentioned in her fight against Makoto while using her mist. It’s her way of fighting. Not really saying or implying she’s the top supreme dog. Her undefeated title doesn’t necesarily mean Shen has met and beaten the best nor did she went looking for a fight. Otherwise, Root wouldn’t possess the same reputation of being undefeated.

        All I meant was, all the fight she had, Shen won. She even mentioned before that all she could do against Black Calamity was to drive it away. And I doubt Tomoe will win against Root even with the boost she got from the contract, and other unmentioned Supreme beings sound dangerous as well.

        I didn’t want to say he did deserve his victory (or draw?) because he didn’t work for his power, but, like paper beat rock, he had a good affinity against shen for his first fight. he nullified all her strong points and that is why he took the advantage. Since shen fought immediatly with her hit and run tactic (hide in the mist), she probably not as strong as other strong being when it come to melee.
        I think if after makoto broke the illusion she became serious and fought only in melee, makoto’s inexperience would have showed and the result would be less clear

        what I’m trying to say is it is easy to stay strong when you have the advange against an opponant, But against sofia and lancer, he lost that advantage, was wounded in the begining and lost his cool because it was his first time seeing death in a fight. He was inexperimented in real fight, and it was the first time he had to fight for his life.
        After all that, he manage to put a good fight, won and get back in asora alive. I think that fight worth much more respect than the fight he put against shen.

    1. Yeah this time it will leave a mark…in a previous chapter it was mentioned he was punished and it was so bad it was better left unsaid.

    1. From what I’ve understood, he was part of that maleficient association that was doing inhuman experiments ! I’m not sure if MC killed him or just tortured, though… AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH !

  23. Oy, I’m looking forward to see their private lessons !
    Well, I’ve also liked that “calm before the storm” part ! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH !
    Great chapters ahead !
    Thanks for the chapter !

  24. You know, it’s called “donation” for a reason. You don’t have to feel bad and give out extra chapters. People who donate are simply people who came here, read, liked your translation, and thus want you to continue. They won’t feel sad, or disrespected, just because you give them no obvious attention. They just don’t want you to drop the series.

    If you feel like you can do sponsored chapters, then go ahead. But I’d like to point out that sponsorship is different, as in this kind of works, you do have obligations toward the sponsor. So only do it if you’re really sure you can manage.

    1. I think reigo-senpai is getting too much donations and i think he is feeling bad because it’s too excesive and wants to return something to the donators so he can have a peace of mind

  25. thanks for the chapter and i really excited for the reaction of makoto when he knows he is the devil that reaction is really hilarious also can’t wait for makoto to meets with the heroes as their power looks tiny in comparison with makoto and the 3 other worlder? men can’t wait for them to join the fray

  26. Thx for the chapter..

    First lizard kun of technique, zwei of power.. Ichigo , and nigo anyone? Zwei also mean two right?

  27. read all the way up to this chapter which is currently the latest. I find the day to day life aspect of this story rather hard to follow. Or boring in worst case scenario. other than that I like the story and the direction it is gong. It’s too bad I can’t comment to the author themselves, I would ask them when things were going to get exciting again 😛

  28. Hmmm. Probably quite late on commenting, but near the beginning you have “R.I.P. in pieces, Rembrandt.” R.I.P. already means rest in peace. I think a more fluid way of putting while still maintaining the “peices” joke would be: “Rest In Peices, Rembrandt.” With each part of the statement being a capital letter to still bring across the R.I.P. that adds to the amusment.

  29. I have seen many stories with a societal value of “Strength is beauty” in fact, not all are fiction either. However this may be the only one that genuinely has a “beauty is strength” societal value. Thanks to the bug goddess’s blessings. Although it is true that beauty has certain strengths, its usually not recognized by society. Its more a hidden strength like knowledge can be. although currently we live in an age where intelligence plays centre stage

  30. ● How to pick piss of the Bugess :
    Make Hyumans cease to valuing other by appearances & not relying on her, one person at a time…

    Basically became Heretic to her ideals 😎

  31. I like the MC. I hate that everyone is bashing him. His ‘meh’ attitude is realistic and not some sort of sanctimonious crap.

  32. “Blue lizard-kun excels in technique, whereas zwei excels in strength”
    What are they, the original Kamen riders?
