Chapter 150: Root’s miscalculation

Translator Note:

Hello there guys, short chapter here. I am in the midst of exam periods, so I will get it out of the way and say it is short here and now. I save you the trouble of saying short in comments 🙂

The main reason I have been pumping out chapters despite being exams is because I like these chapters.

Also, last chapter was really interesting for me, I don’t understand why there was so much hate. There was a lot of psychology and revelations I didn’t know about. Maybe I am the only one that didn’t know and all of you actually knew all that without the need to say it.

Anyways, I wanted to use this corner to thank all the great support from all this time. All donators as well, thank you very much!


Tomoe, Shiki and I were approached by the top class guests: the Limia King, Princess Lily, and Sairitz-san; they requested us for the teleport of both countries, Limia and Gritonia.

After that, won’t that leave the church people here? It seems the Aion people have already left the neighboring towns and headed towards Stella Fort after all.

‘We also used the teleport when assisting the Merchant Guild so it is already close to its limit’, is the total lie Tomoe said with an apologetic expression. The Limia King and Princess Lily lowered their heads, lined up words that can only be taken as threats, and requested for the teleport no matter the method needed.

Sairitz-san soothed the situation every now and then, but Tomoe evasively apologized. When those two changed their target to me, I seriously got scared.

As expected, when there’s their country at stake, their intensity is different.

It’s like, their grit.

Princess Lily looks slightly older than me, and yet, her aura was completely different from mine.

I don’t know if it’s their linage or their education, but they are incredible people.

Strangely, it was scary, but I didn’t feel that weakness I felt when I was dealing with Zara-san.

In a corner of my self, I still held composure and was able to ignore it.

(Waka, it is already enough. Please nod. You did well) (Tomoe)

Tomoe’s thought transmission.

At the moment I was thinking about throwing it back to Tomoe, she came and told me.

That’s a great help.

[Understood. This is an emergency situation, so it can’t be helped. Tomoe, can you do it?]

After a lot of pushing and pulling, I finally nodded.

It is something that I can do to begin with, and being unable to do it is Tomoe’s total lie.

Things will probably line up later.

“… Waka, it isn’t something impossible, and if you tell me to do it, this Tomoe will do so as you wish, but if one teleport is done, the sword won’t be able to handle another one” (Tomoe)

[What do you mean by that?]

“It will most likely break. And it will probably be impossible to repair. Is it really okay? To sacrifice this sword that has been supporting Kuzunoha Company until now?” (Tomoe)

I see…

Changing the teleport basis to a tool.

In other words, when the tool is broken, it will make the person believe that you will be unable to use it anymore.

I finally understood the true reason as to why they made such a pretext like placing the teleport power to a short katana.

So we will not be using teleport from now on? Or she already has another pretext to use teleport later on?

At any rate, I will follow the play of Tomoe.

[I don’t mind. This is a request from the people holding back the demon race in the war. If we are able to be of help, I want to cooperate. I don’t know if there’s a substitute for that sword, but if destiny so wishes, we will meet again]

“… Understood” (Tomoe)

With a face as if facing mental agony, Tomoe acts as if she is troubled, and she separates a bit from Limia King, Princess Lily, Sairitz-san, and Root who at some point in time was already beside those three.

Things like: ‘The distance to the capital is way too much’ and ‘If it’s the Empire, it will only reach until the town Robin which is close to the highway’ are the details she was creating.

After a while, Tomoe unsheathes the short katana, and while placing major emphasis, she opened a mist gate.

Limia’s King and the knight entered that gate and disappear. For some reason, the prince stayed.

After that, Princess Lily and several people that seem to be her close aides disappear inside a gate that was created separately. At this side, a number of people that looked like chamberlain stayed.

And then, the sword broke.

With a grim face, Tomoe falls on her knees.

What a nice act. That’s a fake sword right there.

Of course, I won’t be saying it.

The eyes of Sairitz-san, the prince, and the chamberlains showed slight signs of relief as they look at Tomoe.

Maybe it is relief that we won’t be able to use teleport anymore.

Well, we have the teleport ability and the power to fight against variants, so thinking about both of those points, it is probably a pretty scary thing.

I wanted to ask the bitter-faced Tomoe what’s with those feelings of hers as a bit of opposition, but I decided to just go to where she is and place a hand on her shoulder.

[Are you okay, Tomoe? I am sorry]

(Kukuku, those guys are getting relieved. Seriously, it is because they are so naive that the demon race is playing them like a fiddle. How stupid) (Tomoe)

It was a waste to even try to act worried.

In the end, she asked me to leave her alone for a while and I gave her the permission to. After that, we reached the courtyard where Tomoe separated from us.

When she said ‘alone’, she secretly told me in thought transmission that she will be in Asora, so Tomoe is in Asora right now.

And that’s why, if we teleport now, it would be bad.

“The battle’s outcome will hinge on how much power the heroes possess. Well, the demon race has already taken that into account, and that’s why they are aiming for a short decisive battle. As long as there’s no special situation occurring, the events will advance as the demon race planned” (Shiki)

“Is there a good hand we can play while we are in Rotsgard?” (Makoto)

“Yes. It may be bad for us to head there ourselves, but if it’s, for example, the winged-kin and the Gorgon who no one knows their connection with us; and there’s also the choice on sending the Arkes to provide support” (Shiki)

“That’s not a viable option. To send someone from Asora to a battlefield where none of us is in, that’s an absolute no. Also, the winged-kin fly in the sky you know? Won’t they turn into good targets?” (Makoto)

“… Waka-sama, the winged-kin is quite the strong race. Maybe they can even bring down a country by themselves. Try watching a fight of them against the other races. It is just that their ability to fight against Waka-sama is despairingly low. Also, the Gorgons, if they were sent out to the battlefield, they possess a terrifying ability that can end the battle. At worst, we can arbitrarily dispel the petrification of the ones we want to. No problems there. It is not a petrification that brings instant-death. They are very special ability-users after all” (Shiki)

When I reject the idea of using only the people residing in Asora as fighting force, Shiki comes at me in a slightly serious manner.

Are the winged-kin actually strong?

Not only can’t they take my arrows, they even fly all the way into the sky and hide over the clouds. Those kind of weak beings.

Even the Gorgons, if you create a barrier against petrification, their only weapon left would be their moving hair.

I really can’t agree to sending only them to fight, and on top of that, it is a battlefield.

“Hmph… If Shiki says so, I will check it out some other time. But this time is a pretty serious attack from the demon race right? Also, there’s the chance that the hero will see them as mamonos and attack them. I don’t want that to happen” (Makoto)

“Hm… If you say so, it can’t be helped. Thinking about the success rate and the demerits on our side, I thought it would be a good plan though” (Shiki)

“I don’t want to simply abandon the hero, but we can’t just straightforwardly go there. How troublesome. Uhm, hey Shiki, we were talking about the Kingdom all this time but, what about the Empire? If that’s the true decoy, then there’s not much need to worry about that side?” (Makoto)

I notice that we have only been talking about the Kingdom.

Right, there’s two heroes.

“That’s the point I can’t see clearly yet. Honestly speaking, I don’t know. I do have something in mind, but I wonder if that’s actually correct” (Shiki)

“Can you tell me please?” (Makoto)

“For the demon race to do a two-sided attack, they still have too few fighting force. Moreover, the forces at the Empire are dispersed. I don’t feel like they are aiming for the capital at that side. But if the Empire discovers that the battle there is a decoy, the Empire’s hero has a dragon that is boasted for their high mobility, so he will most likely go there to provide support. The demons that haven’t brought down the Limia capital will be caught in a pincer attack by the Limia hero and the Empire hero. It seems the Empire’s hero is good against many enemies, so his power isn’t something they can ignore. The longer the fight prolongs, the chances the people stationed at Stella Fort for the attack will regroup with the capital, and not only will the demons have inferior numbers, they might even be wiped out. If that were to happen, everything will turn out as pointless” (Shiki)

“Yeah” (Makoto)

“So there should be a reason why they dispersed their forces at the Empire, but I don’t know the reason clearly yet. I am thinking that maybe the Dragon Slayer Waka-sama talked about before is slipped in one of the units heading to the Empire. If they were to use her to completely hold the hero back, I don’t know the reason for dispersing the forces, but I would understand how it would work to reinforce the plan to attack Limia. But the Dragon Slayer siding with the demon race is something that is not well known yet. If she were to fight in this kind of battle, the truth that she is a traitor will spread through the whole world. I wonder if that person would actually do something like that, is what I am mulling over right now” (Shiki)

“Sofia huh~ I don’t know about her at all. I have only met her once, so there’s no way I would know what she is thinking” (Makoto)

What we both have in common is that we have a superior dragon accompanying us.

But her way of thinking is something I can’t read.

“Depends on where Rona will be appearing huh. If it’s in the Empire, the Empire will really be a decoy, and the dispersal of their forces is to draw out the Empire. Is one way of thinking, but…” (Shiki)

It seems like both the Kingdom and the Empire are in a pretty precarious situation.

Limia’s side seems worse, so I think that something should be done.

They are fellow Japanese after all.

To think that something like this was happening in the world while we were moving in Rotsgard.

I feel like this matter will become big.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

“The miraculous move Makoto-kun did unawarely, the restoration of the thought transmission at that timing; I thought the hero killing plan of the demon race would progress perfectly, but it seems like it will be slightly stormy” (Root)

On a tower at the corner of the Academy, Root looks at Makoto and Shiki who are close to the gate.

Quite the eyesight.

Normally, it would be impossible to see them from that distance.

The most that someone with good eyes would be able to do is see those two as a speck.

At night, it would be even more difficult.

“With that one move, it would be like denying his connection with the demon race. On top of that, showing the power of the Kuzunoha Company to the various countries, they are now seen as a threat. Well, they did obtain a big advantage which is to have everyone in Rotsgard like Kuzunoha Company” (Root)

If the timing were faster, or a bit slower, it would have been possible that it would turn harder for Kuzunoha Company to deny their connection with the demon race.

The actions of Tomoe also influenced, but the setting she created from the very beginning was a bit slow, is how Root saw it in his point of view.

Makoto’s timing was good and it was at pinpoint. Not only that, it wasn’t his own proposition but something an authority forcefully pushed onto him.

It was a timing that many people thought as something that wasn’t his aim and intention.

A chance that even the person himself can’t determine, a moment that he didn’t even know would be coming.

It isn’t something that can be aimed for.

It is something that can’t be done unless you have been born in ‘that kind’ of star.

Root can’t do anything but laugh.

But well, there was also another emotion mixed in aside from his irresistible urge to laugh.

“It is Makoto-kun after all. Even if he is below a star where he draws a jackpot from time to time, he perpetrates all those things. Even at this time, it even made me think that he drew a joker along with that ace” (Root)

That’s right.

He had no basis, but Makoto is not lucky.

Root knows that well.

That’s why Root doesn’t think that Makoto just earned that unexpected achievement.

Ending in a fight with a superior dragon without aiming for it, encountering a calamity spider, unable to understand the words of the people he met, having a normal appearance and still be looked down for it; no matter where you see it, he was always involved in something.

Root thinks: he has ‘that kind’ of fate.

“Furthermore, he has changed all of those into pluses and has reached up to this point. This time, just what will you do next~!!” (Root)

Suddenly opening wide those eyes of enjoyment, he turns towards the empty sky.

“Impossible! You shouldn’t be able to move yet! Woman, you also push yourself way too hard!!” (Root)

The expression of agitation and astonishment that Root was showing right now would surprise Makoto if he were to see it.

A rift appears in the clouds that have been covering the sky the whole day and a sunlight shines through it.

A golden light falls from the night sky.

A section of Rotsgard town was basked by a divine light that would make anyone that sees it unconsciously feel solemnity.

    1. man, talk about perfect timing. I JUST sat down in front of my computer when I got the alert lol. Thank you for the chapter. needed this after the day I have been having (I’m currently at war with my toilet)

    1. Time for some Spoiler-san shenanigans.

      Guys, it’s finally here!!! XD Spoiler-san has waited so long to see this next arc be properly translated by Reigo-senpai. “The Participation of the Majin” is coming. Spoiler-san is just… so excited. So excited that he will give minor spoilers!!! First off, the Heroes return to the story after so long. And trust me, everyone is going to like the part with Trashmoki!!! Spoiler-san doesn’t even have to say why you will XD Also, an old rivalry will appear as well, but Spoiler-san is already risking it all right now to say as much as he has. And yes, the Golden Light is a certain bug. As for what happens, Spoiler-san is afraid that you will have to wait and read it for yourself.

      *sees Truck-kun coming*

      Go ahead Truck-kun!!! Spoiler-san is in such a good mood that not even you can ruin it by hitting me!!!

      1. It came at last!! This damn opening ARC that i have been waiting for!!!! The rematch of Makoto vs Sofia and Lancer plus the first meeting with heroes!!! THEY WILL TREMBLE BEFORE NUCLEAR MAKOTO!!!

      2. able to give us an approximate amount of chapters for all the interesting? I personally like having some idea as to how many chapters its going to take to get to a milestone.

        1. The Wayback is broken, it always has been. You have to manually navigate between chapters to find which one you’re looking for. It’s hard to find the exact link too.

    2. I had heard there were some chapters where the bug was put in her place by other gods. Is that and others like it translated somewhere? And if so where can I find it? I’ve tried it myself, but every time I put in the ‘side stories’ part, it sends me to random things.

      1. If you’re using the Wayback Machine, it’s broken. It always has been. You have to manually go to the chapter you’re looking for. Spoiler-san is just glad that he’s past the point where he has to use it.

        1. I don’t even know what the chapter titles are. I’ll just have to wait until someone I’m following translates it. Normally, I wouldn’t mind, but I really can’t stand feeling like I’m missing out on half the story.

    1. Wait, WHAT? We’ve been calling her a bug because we’re comparing her to an insect? Is that what Makoto meant!?

      I’ve been calling her a bug because she’s a plague on all existence above all diseases. Also to avoid using any specific name like cockroach and syphilis, for fear of offending cockroaches and syphilis bacteria everywhere.

  1. that cliff hanger, i know that golden light that f#cking bug!! makoto’s gonna be called again to fight ahahahahahahah thatl be fun! cant waint for the next one. thank you always for the hard work its really apriciated.

  2. Is curious, don’t you think: The bug that abandon the MC to his luck in her rotten world, casting him aside like a pebble, is now kiddnaping Makoto and making him do the job her Chosen Ones can’t do… I have never seen a “godess” in any media with such lack of shame, honor and dignity like her. Be strong Makoto, someday you will have your revenge on her.

    1. I agree with what you said, she’s a bitch. But come on dude, haven’t you read the WN of tate no yuusha? That goddess is what you call the definition of shameless bith without honor nor dignity.

      1. True, but also there is a big diference between them, the “Witch goddess” tramples with worlds to increase her power in a sick war game against others like her (what is not an excuse) and will use her avatars like “Bitch Malty” to directly toy with the order of the world, either manipulating someone or doing it herself. The “Bug goddess” on the other part is just an ” idiotc model with some abilities trying to rule a world that she borrowed” looking down on others that doesn’t are in her aesthetics values. Making the weight of their sins different, BTW yeah that was a good WN.

        1. So true, I prefer a thousand times this bug goddess that the bitch goddess. Though, both of them don’t even deserve the time their respective MC use to deal with them.

      2. Huh. This does give me an idea. Has there ever been a novel some godslayer like our Shield Bro comes in out of nowhere and kills that world’s bastard of a god?

        If you think about it, gods that act like that have got to have made some enemies.

  3. Trying to get this out there before it gets too buried in the comments, but Side story 2 is out. As well as a note that KyOption’s dropping the project, but at least we know what happened to the intro girls.

    1. Well… it’s sad that it’s being dropped. But at least we have the main story, right? And at the rate the raws update, I’m sure that Reigo-senpai might end up fully catching up before too long and probably start with the side stories out of boredom? That’s a huge “probably”.

      1. sad really sad. i just hope makoto meet in main story soon higashi and hasegawa. and ibuki as well those 3 characters can really have a big development here. as long they dont get used by the most loved clan of the godess

  4. Poor Makoto, his sense of power is completely distorted. Winged Kin are a poor match for him because bows do bonus damage to flying units. Gorgons are a poor match because their ability is completely brushed off. Tomooooe. Educate Waka a little more.

    So, we finally have the bug goddess dragging Makoto into things, round 2? I’m excited to find out what’ll happen.

    Final note, I don’t know why, but Tomoe calling world power leaders naive really makes me giggle.

          1. No worries, I been a bit busy so I haven’t been writing lately, chapter 14 will be out tomorrow… Maybe \( ̄▽ ̄;)/.

    1. even if tomoe tries, still will think like that

      the main reason makoto think they are weak its becuz HE THINKS HE ITS WEAK he really things a party of 3 persons with lvls less than 400 can defeat him because more exp in battle so makotos mind its completely distorted as if its weaker than him then cant fight or will get defeated easily

      i know sounds stupid but its easily to think that makoto things that tomoe mioand shiki are stronger than him

    1. The Demon Lord was never a villain, he is just a King looking out for his people.

      And the main culprit responsible for the enmity between the Demons and Hyumans is the Goddess, so thinking of her as a villain is understandable.

      1. Terrorists think they are right in what they do. That ego of “I’m am right” is the basis of corruption of a civilization. So Demon Lord is a villain for many hyumans while the Goddess and her blessed folk are villains for the Demons and mamono. This turned quite philosophic. So what I mean is, for now only Makoto is neutral. And has truly been seen as a threat by only Hyumans, though friendly on the cover. The goddess thinks that Makoto is a bug, which he kinda is.

  5. Thank for the chappy.
    Oh shifty goddess is getting desperate. She wanta Makoto’s help once again. She is such an idiotic goddess that I feel pity for her.

    1. Spoiler-san says that there’s a difference between “Stupidity” and “Desperation”. Just read the next chapter when it comes out and you will see.

  6. Good luck on your exams! just finished mine a week ago!
    BTW i also thought it was interesting last chapter. However, it was pretty shallow thinking though. It can only go so many ways… so yah.. but was enjoyable nonetheless.

    1. Honestly, there are very few chapters I dislike, and none come to mind for me right now. Last chapter was fine. It’s just very cliffhanger-y sometimes is all.

    1. I found the last chapter fine, it was setting stuff up for later.

      It seems that there is a section of readers of WN that don’t understand proper story flow. They don’t want introduction->build up->climax->resolution, they want buildup->climax->buildup->climax->… so you see a lot of complaints about filler or the story being slow when story elements are either being resolved or set up for the next problem. I can only shake my head at their foolishness.

      Maybe they read too many of the Chinese WN? From most of the reviews I read about them they seem to lack proper structure and follow the buildup->climax loop.

      1. I blame Satou for destroying every persons common sense and also his.. I want to make him pay for the medication and soon to be funeral of my Common sense

  7. And the bug appears. go shrivel up and die in a hole somewhere.

    Maybe Makoto can just purposely double his magic power a few times and slap the bug with something fitting.

  8. If she can’t summon him forcibly then Makoto may be getting his speech blessing in a trade :O

    Or she will threaten him with that special existence that was mentioned earlier.

    Half expecting Trashmoki to stick to defence because he isn’t over losing and his fear of Moontality being voided.

    Hopefully Hibiki never learns of Mio’s actions…

    And thank you reigokai ^_^ make sure to give yourself leeway for exams and best of luck!

    1. the thing i want most its that the brain washing of tomoki followers being cleansed by the barrier of the demons, since he practically charmed all the empire it be priceless!

      also cmon makoto ? WTH with you comparing sofia`s dragon with tomoe? seriously? he thinks that he has in common that? gods sake its like comparing an ant vs a !”·!”·!”· trex

      1. His power was dispelled during the battle for Stella Fort. It was just that those girls have spent so long under his power, nothing happened. The love that was originally implanted into their minds became reality.

  9. AH-HAH! Just when they were discussing how to help those damned heroes comes a “blessing” in disguise! He can go himself now and rekt.

  10. WORST CLIFFHANGER EVER!!!!

    really?! this is the 3rd time meeting BUG again which dont like to expect dragging Makoto into the FIELD AGAIN! Why, because either it going to be another pointless war or ALL-OUT BOOM on both side again like the LAKE STAR.

    That BUG like to FORCE the BIG and DIRTY work on Makoto for her OWN PERFECTION, like HELL! He isn’t going to be silent and work as Puppet, Makoto show her WHO KICKING BETTER THAN WHO in the Story of Own Belief.

  11. Thanks for the chapter (~_^). Honestly, I received the notification of the last chapter just when I was going to sleep, so I finished reading the chapter and went to sleep without looking at the comments. Whay was there so many hate that even made Reigo-sama to ask that at the beginning? Guys, if you don’t like it, then fuck off. Go away without leaving behind those unwanted comments.

    1. Okay, it was *why* and not *whay*, the other was *much* and not *many*. I’m in my smartphone sooo… Anyways! The bug goddess is descending, someone get me a spray! It seems like the arc that spoiler-san has been talking about it’s finally coming. I wonder what will do the bug… Makoto should be prepared to cancel her forceful summoning so O don’t think he will be forcibly dragged again. Does she wamt to kill him now? He has become really strong, so maybe she recognized his as a threat? Or maybe she will implore for his help since she is useless and can’t do anything? Can’t wait for the next chapter (σ≧▽≦)σ. That again reigo-sama, it was a bery good chapter, wish you luck with your exams.

  12. If a new arc is starting, will someone being creating a pdf/epub of the most recently completed arc? Pureeeze?

    It’s probably unlikely, but it would be one heck of a twist if everything was planned out by Bug from the beginning, including mistreating Makoto such that he gets Tsukiyomi’s powers….

    1. if i remember correctly tsukuyomi already gave power to him even before meeting the bug since he mentioned he will share some and he receive more from the goddess

      1. Tsukuyomi gave him a little bit of a blessing figuring that the Goddess would bless him the rest of the way. When the Goddess didn’t give him anything but a curse Tsukuyomi pumped as much power as he could to reinforce the blessing he had given him and ended up sleeping.

        And the Goddess doesn’t think that far ahead. She seems to be a “short term goal” only type of person and her influence has resulted in most all of the Hyumans ending up the same.

    1. hard to. if you were reading he might get teleported to limia kingdom where the real trouble its and sofia since its a dragon slayer its fighting empire hero tomoki since her follower its a dragon summoner

      well there its always a plot twist here

  13. I followed this since chapter 1 and now I am seriously about to drop it soon.

    150 chapters and up to this point, it feels like Makoto, this insufferable MC, only ever made 1 step of progress regarding personal growth and then stopped entirley. I don’t know what to say, it so very agitating watching the strongest one having the mindest and acting like he is the weakest, I would seriously hit him If I could. What did we see in this chapter?

    Against people who wouldn’t be able to hold a candle against him, He is scard and puts up an act.

    The very people that basically “threated” him and were visually happy that he would be “unable” to use a skill anymore, he helps.

    Afraid to use his powerful subordinates to achieve one of his objectives, which can hardly be called one and puts himself in a “locked down” situation.

    His give and return rate is ridiculous, its like he is spending millions to earn a cooper and even that cooper is bascially worthless to him. What did he get from all the effort in this event? He wanted to make a better impressions of his company and….thats it? Sure he did make a good impression to the townsfolk but they already liked the company beforehand and the people with autohrity only again saw just how valuable he is which will only ever give them thoughts of either using him as a pawn or having him dissposed. Nothing changed.

    And the sad thing is, he will propably have himself be used as a pawn, with that idiotic thought process of his and none of his followers will ever say something to him. I could rant on and on but what it basically comes down to for me is, if the MC doesn’t show a speck of process towards breaking out of his way of thinking very very soon, I am dropping this.

    1. its really sad but for makoto to change then the whole thing of being MC should be dropped, this guy its completely chaining himself of being a $!·”!”· normal human with japanese sense of rights wanting to live peacefully without being bother or bothering anyone

      so HE its scared that if he do something bad goddess appear and kill him ( he its stronger but he thinks he is weak )
      He IS SCARED that if he do something out of hand ppl will look bad at him
      HE is scared that his actions will kill his friends and ppl

      if he drops any of the MC traits, this novel would change by huge leaps
      and if that were to happen i think this novel would go to deathmarch path were MC its so op that author doesnt have anything to add aside slice of life and everything going to food HAHA

    2. I agree, at first he want to use strength is also power. But then root and tomoe go and us the katana move. Now he become some useless one with super strength organization’s leader. Sometimes, his subordinate is what holding him. Shiki did a better job on wanted to show that Kuzunoha is not something you should mess of. I understand that root did that kind of move because of it is interesting to him. Tomoe should just take him away from hyuman when makoto already want to do that. The growth makoto shows being pulled back by tomoe and root this past chapters really like a joke to makoto char developement.

    3. Just drop it if you want to. No one’s holding you, and you’ll not be missed.

      Just don’t say it here coz it’ll make reigo-san upset and affect his/her mood, in translating…
      If you have complaint about the novel just complain. There’s no need for the threat of dropping.
      I thought we have this discussion few chapter back?

      1. We did, along with the fact that pointlessly complaining about the story doesn’t do anything since this is a translation site and not the authors site. Complaining to complain doesn’t really get you anything but selfsatisfaction and annoyance of people that like the story.

        A lot of the complaints are weird to. The poster says that Tomoki is trash and then wants Makoto to be acting just like him, and can’t see the contradiction in that.

  14. Personally, I didn’t really like last chapter because it was useless. It seemed like a filler to me. Nothing interesting happened and nothing useful was said. But that’s just my opinion. Also, the only stuff I know about this story is from this site.

  15. Best of luck on the exams, and thank you for the chapter.

    Regarding the last chapter, IMHO, I thought it was good and I really enjoy it. As Reigokai point it out, it has many good things cram into the chapter, in addition to a well thought out prediction on the ennemy actions.

  16. That is why I don’t like they push their power to the katana. Just show some dominance makoto. You already have the power to do so you know. Makoto a big M I guess.

    1. It makes it easier to mislead the idiot Hyumans. It can be annoying when too many ants are crawling on you so having them think that the sword was the source of the teleport is handy.

      And, since you don’t seem to have been paying attention, having the sword as the source of the teleport ability was something Tomoe thought up to keep the Hyumans from annoying them. Makoto just went along with it because he figures she is older, has more experience, and probably knows what she is doing.

      They might be able to crush the populus but the story would end up just being a CN work instead. If thats what you want go read one of those, plenty of them out there.

      1. but it still did not keep them away right? They can take many choices I can think of. 1 is to show them that they can’t do anything to kuzunoha by showing what they really capable of (Like how Zara can see what is kuzunoho can do). Mio and Shiki leaning to this.

        Another one is keep getting step on like how the they do now. I understand that it is annoying if they keep pestering them but, Makoto want to leave the hyuman side at first you know.
        Tomoe said he want to keep makoto as pure as possible so she keeps him from going to the noble area, but she still letting others showing how tainted they are and let them keep on using makoto as their puppet, that is what is weird to me.
        Root of course want this because he likes to see how makoto will reacts on hte hyuman unsightliness.

        Another way is just destroy anything like the CN MC.

    Alrighty then.
    -Tomoe need an Oscar for her acting this time around.
    – Lol Root, I think you’re mistaking immense bad luck with fate, but hey, whatever floats your goat…was it boat? Whatever.
    – Bug showed up again with a force teleport?
    As the saying goes; “Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, shame on you.”
    If this kind of situation occurs in the next chapter I will capslock denied on the comments.

    1. Hey man… You got that wrong.
      It’s “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me” …
      It makes sense the right way, and the same can’t be said about your way…

      1. Nah, you guys all wrong.
        The REAL and COMPLETE saying goes:

        Fool me once, shame on you.
        Fool me twice, shame on me.
        Fool me thrice, I’m most likely Misumi Makoto AKA Raidou.

  18. Totally agree with MadBear here, Makoto is an unbearable beta little bi*ch. But I don’t really want to drop this, since I really like all the other main and secondary characters. I’m a bit saddened by the fact that the orc girl didn’t become a main character, but I’m still okay (way more than just ok, actually) with MC’s main 3 followers. Japs really aren’t that good with MCs, most of times. Especially in Isekai series.

    1. Honestly, I’m not sure what sort of MC people actually want. I’m sure not everyone is after the bad Chinese Novel MCs with their own centered morality.

      A character with growth? A character with intelligence? A character with one of those two plus badass moments?

      1. There’s always Tomoki for that kind of MC they desire, as for the MC with moral there is Hibiki for that. Makoto on the other hand is just outside of this norm MC’s which he is just a normal average human

      2. ugh! those chinese novel mc’s can be disgusting in terms of personality. they have the intelligence, action, and a general devotion to family…but it just hides the real nature behind the mc.

        it’s more of a me me me thing combined with a condescending outlook on others despite acting no different. only real difference was that the mc never forced himself on women, but the mc’s own opinion in coiling dragon actually attempted to make the readers sympathize with the rapist because his actions was correct from his own perspective. sigh~

  19. if makoto thinks that his people are weaker than him and he thinks he himself is weak as well…. wtf!! soon he’ll re-evaluate that the gods are weak as well LMAOF XD

    And so comes the second abduction of the devil XD, ive been waiting !!

    thanks for the chap!!

  20. Thank you for the great, and fast work. Amazing story, cant wait for more..Just makes me sad I can no longer read Hachinan any longer with it

  21. Here an ‘What-If’.
    What if someone have to channeling Magicalpower in these Level-Testing-Scrolls, so that they work. As far as I know, Makoto never did that.
    His disorder to think he is weak, are from thinking he is only Level 1

    1. Levels have nothing to do with Makoto’s poor opinion of himself. He already knows that the concept of ‘level’ is just something that Root made up and can manipulate as she wants to suit her own purposes. And even if levels were to mean anything, Makoto’s not stupid enough to believe that he’s only Lv 1 either.

  22. “Also, last chapter was really interesting for me, I don’t understand why there was so much hate. There was a lot of psychology and revelations I didn’t know about. Maybe I am the only one that didn’t know and all of you actually knew all that without the need to say it.”

    I do know and you will have even more fun reading some of the nexts ch. ^^
    And some revelations (well, better stop the hints of spoiles)

  23. I M really pissedoff with bug …..
    So to the guy your send him to death, Not only one but twice times you want he clean the ass of your favourites heroes? Are you dumb? Can you stop pestering makoto…. You give him nothing, you give a fuck about law and kidnap two more people from Other world,… You BS him… Now he has to save them? What a shameless bitch…. I want so much read cheerleader squad make their show….
    That BUG is soo much ….. Better this time makoto can get something like idiom blessing in exchange to help, not i help cause you want, bitch….

  24. HAHAHAHAHAHA Great Chapther as always, Sensei please rest a bit you keep posting this fast and I’m going to become an adict to your translations. Well the Goddes apears again to mess things up, hope Makoto can at least make her day unconfortable. Besides he nicknames her a bug because she is that unpleasent, really how many people see a BUG and think “AOOO thats so cute”????

  25. thanks for the chapter 🙂

    the roach is starting to move, seriously whats that dragon slayer doing? just kill her already xD

    i personally like makoto as ‘devil’ instead of his naive merchant mode but well everybody have their preferences so goodluck ^^

  26. The Bug is coming but I feel this time will be different, she won’t be made into a pet but she will have to swallow her pride and negotiate with Makoto.

  27. Well this is certainly a surprise!
    Thanks for the chapter
    But that bitch of a goddess………DAMN I MEAN HOW MUCH OF BITCH YOU CAN GET TO HAVE EVERYTHING GO YOUR WAY!.

  28. the bug is here!!! somebody bring out the bug spray! if not enough, bring out the molotov cocktail! *clear throat*
    will the bug beg Makoto to save the heroes? will she be terrified if makoto threatens her? i’m looking forward to it. oh well, back to rereading the WN.

  29. yay were finally here! hahaha I can’t believe i read this in raw and when I was reading the raw using google translator i wasnt sure if my understanding was right but turns out I was about 70% right hahahah! now unto the next chapter! btw thanks for the chapter and I just finished my exam today and thank god its done now I can focus on this. also for those haters I dont know but I think youll like the next chapter cause makoto will resist there hahah well thats all.

  30. Thank you for the chapter!

    Long time reader, first time commenter – wanted to throw in that this whole undertaking is really appreciated – the story is great, but also your translation speed is wonderful AND still keeps a really good flavor/style to it. A lot of translations out there feel sorta machine-y or broken Englishy, or require a mental translation of the translation to understand – and while they’re still good and it isn’t a dig against those groups/translators (even a confusing translation is more easily understood than no translation, after all), the difference in quality really makes something this well done stand out.

    so, props!

  31. hyped! looking forward to next chapter, and what new legends and rumours and great lakes the masked avenging shero will create.

      1. So if the bug anger him, he will recreate the myth of the atlantid from his world.
        Lets hope some gods from his world don’t take him for a copycat.

  32. So, to make it short, the winged can (probably) bring down a country. they are 300, taking out the non-warrior the number probably fall around 100. If those guy can bring down a country, they are basically like angels in the apocalypse, but for makoto they are pigeons…

    1. Makoto would put some god of bow and hunt to shame. So yeah for him angel are nothing more than shinning pigeons.

    2. Makoto got arsenals upon races that could put hyumans in there to the brink of extinction compared to the demon race. Got a Superior Dragon, a Calamity Spider and a powerful Lich.
      Got more power than the hyumans and demons. Even those 2 heroes are just ants compared to a giant with a bow.

  33. Either the goddess drags makoto again,or Mio comes and tries tk kill the goddess, or goddess begs makoto to save the heroes(unlikely very unlikely), or makoto fights hahaha damn im hype

  34. I got this feeling that, the moment thisbug realizes she can’t just send off Makoto, she will shift that duty to his students instead… she is, after all, that kind of bitch.

    1. I have two guesses as to why. First would be that she should be under extreme pressure by the gods of other worlds, or atleast from Makotos old world, for just taking more humans then what was agreed upon between her and Tsukiyomi, meaning that she shouldn’t be able to use too much attention/power for what is going on in her own world.
      The second would be that, for a god, directly interfering in the mortal world is always portrayed as quite straining for the gods in similar storys, if it is the same here her powers may not be recovered enough to allow her to interfere again without some risks involved for her.
      Maybe it’s even both at the same time.

  35. For someone that look at Makoto as something disgusting, the goddess call him way too much. Maybe a tsundere goddess.

    Anyway i like this MC. He acts the way a person of his age and experience would.

  36. Please tell me we are not gonna get like 6 chapters , 3 for each hero and whats happening on their sides before we get back to this cliff.

    1. I think we will first have the “negociation” of Makoto with the bug. Be it a one-side order, a real negociation or a god-class fight, it’s still to see.

  37. Thankies for the chapters and Good luck with the exam

    No need to rush I or maybe we didnt want this to affect your real life very much so do it on your own pace

  38. i wanted to say “do your best in the exams” but now that i finished reading this chapter am adding “good luck” cuz i wouldn’t be to keep my self from wanting to know what happens next so i rly hope you’ll be able to do that

  39. Good luk on your exams. Really thank you for providing us with your extraordinairy kindness. As much as i like reading your translations i think i should say “go study”. Thank you again and get “asian” like marks😂.

  40. If he get teleported again, high chance that his nickname identity as “the Devil” would be revealed to everyone. A being that does not side with either race and bring destruction to all.

  41. Reigokai-Sempai, arigato gozaimasu

    cant wait to see what the bug goddess wil do, maybe our MC will get the “pest killer” title like certain dragon MC

    1. Now, I’m not sure exactly what kind of bad day and stressful life would cause me to have a nervous breakdown, but discontinuation of this translation fits the in the equation way too well.

  42. Ah, the bug goddess. The thing I like least in this story with the sole exception of the male hero.

  43. no, stop it right there !! he did absolutely nothin’ !! With his ressources there was thousands of possible and better way ! but here he just got humiliated in every aspect, he even saved the hyuman race that he hate, and again the author contradict himself with helping them so much and fuck the demon race, where the fuck is his fairness ? in which damn way of view u can see the he is neutral ?? it’s easy to see the author mess everywhere .. it’s like he have everything, all the basis to create a great novel .. but sadly messed up just like someone who stole a story from someone and trying to improvise or change thing to his own convenance but just to endup like that ..

  44. It’s the [email protected] Bloody Bugess … Brace for Impact.

    ~Be Polite & Armed to the teeth if politeness isn’t the prefered languange of your opposition … That’s what WAKA-SAMA exactly is right now.
