Chapter 159: Realizing he is the Devil

Translator Note:

Just wanted to say, thanks for all the donations and support, you guys are awesome!

And wow, 400 comments in a single day, talk about impressive! O.o


“Just as it is big, the speed isn’t much to consider huh!”

Dodging the fist that the magic power body punched out, Sofia jumps to close range.

She came at me with several attacks using her red light cladded sword.

But, it didn’t reach me.

“Well, I am not a master in martial arts after all. At any rate, those are quite the strong attacks. It doesn’t even compare to last time” (Makoto)

“… That’s obvious! This is—” (Sofia)

“The power of dragons huh. Taking into account the aria, did you borrow the power of another superior dragon?” (Makoto)

“How about this?!” (Sofia)

Not even an answer.

The figure of Sofia disappears.

It must be her prided teleportation.

Just that, it is slightly different from before.

At that time, she was exchanging her position with swords, but it looked like she is currently using a different method to teleport.

Is it the power of a shadow dragon or something?

Diagonally to my front, at mid-air, I feel her presence.

As if shouldering her back, she prepares her sword and around her chest there’s a red sphere.

A long distance attack?

Sofia swings her sword diagonally and leaves a trail.

At that moment, the red sphere turns into something similar to a laser and heads towards me.

I reflexively use the magic power body’s hand to stop it.

Crush it and erase it.

“Hmph~ it was like a laser. Is that the power of the fire dragon that you mentioned in your aria? When talking about a fire superior dragon, it would be the crimson fire dragon “Crimson Light Akari” huh” (Makoto)

“… This didn’t work either. Crimson Light is the one that holds the strongest attack power among the dragon race though” (Sofia)

The Dragon Slayer that landed glares at me with intense eyes.

“I don’t remember being hated by a dragon though” (Makoto)

Actually, I am being liked way too much by a dragon that has both sexes and it’s even troubling me.

“Ara, don’t worry. It is not like Raidou is being hated!” (Sofia)

Without learning, she charges at me again.

While repelling, I also launch my own attack.

“!!!”

The fist is evaded once again and, from the surface of that fist, a magic formation expands. From there, a laser type of attack like the one Sofia used, was shot.

But… Tch.

It was a surprise attack, and yet, she was able to block it with her sword.

As always, she has crazy intuition and an unbelievable sword.

But there’s no need to care about that.

This magic power body also serves the purpose of strengthening my spells.

Actually, that’s its main purpose.

I contain the magic power that has come out from my body in my surrounding.

Set [Sakai] at perception.

Because if it’s her attack power, there’s no need to use strengthening even if her power increases by double after all.

“How about, this?” (Makoto)

I look at where Sofia has taken distance, and make a short aria.

Several ripples appear from the front part of the magic power body.

Balls the size of fingers detach from the human shape and float.

“Is that, a defense mechanism?” (Sofia)

Maybe she understood what I intended to do, Sofia mutters as if groaning.

“It is not only that right, Sofia?” (Makoto)

Immediately after the balls trembled slightly…

An attack similar to the laser from before was shot in several small lines towards Sofia.

Bundles of light that were no fewer than hundred were heading at Sofia, but she uses her usual teleportation to evade it.

But that’s futile.

Her teleportation isn’t the type that lets her escape into a different space.

She is just moving to a different location.

On top of that, from what I have seen, there’s quite the limitation in distance.

Yeah.

There she is.

With [Sakai], I find Sofia hiding under cover.

To all the lights that were heading against a wall because they lost their target… I tell them her location.

“They curved?!” (Sofia)

All of the lights changed their direction and lunged towards the mountain of rubble that Sofia was hiding in.

Curving a laser type attack.

It is one of the dreams of men. Natto missile is also good.

The voice of Rona that I heard from the back was dyed in surprise.

Homing trait isn’t that unusual of a thing though.

What I did just now wasn’t homing but something close to adding a new input. It doesn’t look that different though.

An explosion.

I can’t tell the location of Sofia.

There must have been some damage there.

I turn to my back.

Io and Rona were looking at me.

“Io, you should release that dangerous stance. If you are going to get in the way, I will be taking proper steps” (Makoto)

“I think that our fight is still in progress though” (Io)

“I see. I did warn you, okay?” (Makoto)

“Raidou, that thing there, is it all your magic power?” (Rona)

“Rona, I don’t have any intentions to answer that. But I will give you an advice. Quickly pull back your personnel from Stella. It looks like I will be finishing this soon” (Makoto)

Io was facing me and showing a stance.

He is the same type as Sofia, so doing a joint front is difficult.

And yet, he is still trying to join into my fight with Sofia.

“Ah, right. You did have such an attack right, Raidou?” (Sofia)

Oya?

From inside the smoke, Sofia was standing.

I thought that she wasn’t unscathed though.

“You are practically like Io. Did you learn regeneration? How about calling Lancer?” (Makoto)

“I am calling him. It doesn’t seem like he is listening though. Looks like your servant is not letting him go, you know?” (Sofia)

“Ah~, I see. Then let’s finish this already, Sofia” (Makoto)

“… 4 superior dragons” (Sofia)

“Hah?” (Makoto)

“It is not only Mitsurugi and Waterfall like last time. I was elated by that time with the lake, so I also ate Darkness Clad and Crimson Light” (Sofia)

Ate?

She didn’t obtain the cooperation of the superior dragons?

“…”

“I noticed, the ability to eat the power of the dragons and assimilate it. I can brag about being the strongest among adventurers, but adding to that, I have also obtained the power of 4 superior dragons. I have enough power to destroy even a country” (Sofia)

A country?

With only this level?

“Next would be the Sand Wave Sazanami and the Invincible. If I kill those two, I would be able to reach the stage where I can devour Myriad Colors as well” (Sofia)

From the superior dragons I know of, those are all of them huh.

Among the 7 superior dragons, 4 are already within herself, and yet, she isn’t able to touch me. It must be quite the shock for her.

Also… Root.

Looks like her objective has something to do with Root, but… do I have to carry his destiny as well?

I will complain to him about this later.

“How exaggerated. You are able to destroy a country with only this level of power?” (Makoto)

“Plenty enough. That Io over there as well. He is able to destroy a small country. An army is just a power that weaklings flock to. For you and me, those kind of things just serve as targets. The power of individuals, that itself is national power” (Sofia)

“…”

Is that, how it works?

No well, I thought that individuals would be powerless against a flock like an army though.

Certainly.

When looking at this town’s situation and the progress of the battle, I did think: ‘Is this all they have?’.

Even if it’s a surprise attack, I wondered if this is the extent of armies and knight corps.

This world might be a lot ‘weaker’ than I originally thought.

“Seriously. Having scales coming from my skin is just unsightly. How dare you” (Sofia)

Sofia’s power increased a step higher.

The 4 colored powers that were residing in her body as well as her own power, it looked like they were merging and turning into some sort of marble pattern.

The color of her skin darkens slightly.

Just like how she said, I could faintly see scale-looking things.

Her nails lengthened and her eyes changed like the ones of Tomoe which were close to the vestiges of a dragon.

Instead of a Dragon Slayer, she looks more like a Dragon Kin now.

“A transformation? I don’t know about Graunt, but I don’t think you would be able to defeat Shen and Root” (Makoto)

“?! Shen and Root. It seems like the things I will have Raidou open his mouth for have increased” (Sofia)

“For you, that will be impossible” (Makoto)

“Leaving aside the Invincible Shen, the name of the Myriad Color superior dragon is known by practically no one. I will have you tell me a lot of things. Before you die, that is!” (Sofia)

“I see. Lately, I have been eating quite a lot with him though” (Makoto)

“Just how long can you keep that condescending tone?!” (Sofia)

Sofia touches the magic power body.

Just how many times will you do the same thing?

No.

She touched the human shape without holding a sword.

At the same time that I was thinking what she was intending to do, from Sofia’s hand, a pitch black mud-like darkness was spouted out.

I could tell that the darkness that was sticking to the magic power body was declining its strength at those portions.

The sword of Sofia that shone remarkably stronger, accurately makes a flash at the black marking.

“Heh~”

While raising my voice, I include an attack against Sofia.

Making several magic compositions, I fire it off from the human shape.

Spear spheres.

Firing off several attacks, they also did hit the target, but…

She didn’t stop.

Maybe she activated an instantaneous healing magic, she is cutting and cutting and cutting at me without caring.

While covering only her vitals and her right hand, she recovers everything that injures her.

It seems like she has judged that this is the moment to decide the battle.

Oh.

At this moment Io is coming too huh.

I can tell that Io is charging at me from behind.

I have [Sakai] expanded with perception, so I can stop surprise attacks.

It seems like Rona is trying to stop him though.

Like Sofia, Io must have thought that this was the chance.

“Raidou, don’t think bad of m—” (Io)

“Io, why don’t you return? I will kill you, you know? Last time was advice, this time, it is a warning” (Makoto)

I firmly look at Io and tell him this.

The binded Io.

He is being grabbed by the hand of the human shape.

A third arm.

“Wa?!”

“Just because it is hyuman shaped, that doesn’t mean it will only be restricted to 2 arms. Even you have 4 arms after all” (Makoto)

Straightforward.

Facing the starry sky, I lift him up.

After an advance notice that I will kill him if he returns.

Well, he will most likely not return though.

“Rocket Punch, just kidding” (Makoto)

“Uoooo?!!!” (Io)

I cut off the arm and shoot it out at high speed.

The grabbed Io was unable to shake it off and while still struggling, he disappeared into the starry sky.

He was slightly valuable to kill, so well, no matter where he falls, he will most likely be able to repatriate.

I did release him towards Stella so there should be no problems.

“Don’t look away!!” (Sofia)

Along with Sofia’s words, she makes a swipe with all her might.

Ah, this one will be hard to maintain.

It has black markings placed here and there after all.

 

Kii—n!!!

 

An ear-piercing sound.

The human shape broke.

“With this-!!” (Sofia)

Well.

Gagih—!!

“!!!!”

I never said that I can’t reconstruct it though.

The reality that what she destroyed had appeared in an instant again and blocked her sword; without letting escape that moment of disturbance by the reconstruction, I grab Sofia with the hand of the human shape.

“I wonder, just how good is your defensive power in that form?” (Makoto)

The fist that grasped her tightly, releases heat along with light, and explodes.

“Aaaaah!!”

A serious scream of pain.

This is the first time I have heard the voice of Sofia sounding like this.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

Looking at the fight occurring right in front of me, I felt fear.

An emotion close to pure terror.

Io who saw as if Raidou was being pushed back, decided to join the battle as well.

But, he was dealt with in an instant.

The strongest general from our prided army was.

It was something that happened not too long ago.

The hyuman shaped magic power of Raidou grew a third arm from around the armpit and grabbed Io, and just like that, it separated from the body and flew to the sky.

Io is unable to use teleportation.

I see. From a realistic standpoint, he has been shut out of this fight.

If Raidou uses a hand like that, Io has no way of doing anything against it. <Hehe, hand>

If I go look for him, it might be possible to rejoin the battle, but it is a reality that 2 demon generals are unable to compare in any way.

It is simply a bad situation.

Just one thing, what I am hoping is that, Raidou’s trump card is that magic power body.

It is certainly true that that thing is troublesome.

It’s a mass of magic power that can even put spells to use. With a simple aria, it can activate the spells in an instant.

Moreover, as long as he has magic power, it seems like it can even regenerate.

Just by being able to construct such a magic power body, it is proof that he possesses an amount of magic power that rivals the scale of a country.

It doesn’t seem like it is a pure object, so I don’t know about the conversion performance, it might even be slightly better than the one I know of. But the truth is that, this is a literal threat.

“From the demon race experiments, a normal magician would have to use all its magic power just to make a single grain of sand. He is able to make such a mass and materialize it strongly enough to defend against attacks of a Dragon Slayer. In that case…” (Rona)

There’s no doubt that it is an amount of magic power that she doesn’t even feel like calculating.

But in the end, it is magic power.

If it is with my trump card, it is quite good against it.

Even if it’s Raidou, there should be a way to fight it.

If it’s now, I can also expect the support of Sofia.

That is exactly the reason why I am still here.

For the demon race, the Dragon Slayer and that boy will become a threat the moment they turn into enemies.

That’s why, if I can eliminate at least one…

That’s how it is.

It is originally a special attack of mine that needs the permission of my Lord before using, but as expected, right now I have no leeway to fill the forms.

Silently…

I begin my preparations.

I connect my aria and without the two noticing me…

“Rona, I don’t know what you intend to do but, if you continue forming your spell… I will crush you” (Makoto)

“?!!”

Raidou!

That guy, at this distance…

Without even turning this way, he warned me.

Now that I remember, when we were confronting each other for fun at the academy, he was strangely able to predict my attacks.

Different from the other students, my habits shouldn’t have been read, and yet…

I feel a cold sweat running down my spine.

Just a few days ago, the last time we talked and I thought he was as naive as always, in just that small amount of time, did something happen to Raidou?

I don’t understand.

But, the reality that he made such a change is important.

At the very least, he is not someone that can be rolled in the palm of my hand at the battlefield anymore.

I send saliva to my dried throat.

It’s completely dry.

I can feel the fear that I hadn’t felt for so long swelling up inside me.

It wasn’t the time to be concerned about this.

As if hiding the fact that I have yielded to fear, I began to line up several reasons to negate the antagonism towards him.

With thought transmission, I am able to grasp the general location of Io.

He has quite the distance, but it isn’t at the level where I can’t go look for him.

It is the time to step back.

If what Sofia says is true, she has the power of 4 superior dragons and has released the power to the point that her hyuman shape has begun to change.

Blade Dragon’s sword, Fire Dragon’s flame, Water Dragon’s healing and support, Shadow Dragon’s special ability.

It is certainly true that it is power that could bring down a country.

But with a fresh face and with literally no sweat, Raidou was confronting her.

He is also…

No, he is way too much of an unknown number.

At the very least, I have been underestimating him way too much.

“It was a joke, Raidou” (Rona)

“Ah, I see” (Makoto)

“… Your conditions were to give up on the hero and Stella Fortress, right? Okay. I don’t know about Sofia, but Io and I will accept those conditions. We will withdraw” (Rona)

“And the condition is?” (Makoto)

Raidou looks at me.

While confronting Sofia, he has the leeway to look away as many times as he wants.

To think it was to this extent…

“There’s no condition. You will meet with Demon Lord-sama, right?” (Rona)

“Of course. I do want to talk with that person at least once after all” (Makoto)

“Then that’s plenty enough. That girl is a vice-general, but doesn’t lead any army. I will be leaving her here but, you don’t mind, right?” (Rona)

“… I can’t assure you her safety” (Makoto)

“Okay. It seems like she doesn’t intend to stop fighting even after hearing this talk, so I will just accept it as an outcome of the battlefield” (Rona)

“Then go ahead. Let me tell you this just in case. If you intend to place a hand on the hero, Shiki is also outside” (Makoto)

“I am not so stupid. Well then, excuse me” (Rona)

Scary.

Leaving the place and heading to where Io was, this single thought surfaced in my mind.

Raidou is the Devil.

Even if it’s not a name he called himself with, it is a nickname that truly fits him.

This is what I thought as I was finally able to wipe the sweat off my face.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

“… It looks as if the sword is adhered to your hand though?” (Makoto)

“This is originally like the crystallization of Mitsurugi’s power. The stronger I release my dragon power like this, it turns closer and closer to fusing” (Sofia)

In the audience room that now only she and I remain, Sofia once again stands up, clads herself in blue light, and heals her wounds.

In those eyes, there’s still fighting spirit.

“You know, why don’t you leave that fighting style of slowly shaving off your cards to someone that is weaker than you? Or are you thinking that I won’t be killing you?” (Makoto)

If that’s how it is, Sofia would be the naive one.

Because I do intend to kill her.

The moment she reacted to the name Shen, she revealed the intentions of devouring Tomoe as well.

Even if her ability is insufficient, there’s no reason to let her leave.

“I am not in the age where I dream about fighting in a battlefield without being killed. You as well, aren’t your attacks lacking in power more than the Empire’s hero?” (Sofia)

The Empire’s hero?

Why did his name come out so suddenly?

It seems like she let him go though.

“Who knows. I have never met the Empire’s hero. And there’s no need to decide the fight in one attack, right? Go ahead and utilize each one of your cards” (Makoto)

“… Just because you are in an advantage… you are being sarcastic… As I thought, that kid there was at least cuter than you” (Sofia)

“…”

“That kid’s attack was incredible you know? Shadow dragon and Water dragon; I was somehow able to endure it by utilizing two dragons at full power. It wasn’t to the point that I had to use this form, but it was higher than you though” (Sofia)

“…”

“He does think about his companions, and he also had the resolve to shave off his own life in order to reach his objective” (Sofia)

“…”

“If I was asked who I wanted to work together with—” (Sofia)

“I see. The Empire’s hero is surely impressive” (Makoto)

“What?” (Sofia)

“He was even able to use his charm power against an out of standard woman like you. On top of that, even if it was somewhat, he firmly left an impetus. If he meets you a number of times more, it may even reach perfection” (Makoto)

“?!”

It was as if she didn’t notice at all. Her expression dyes in surprise.

“Hahaha, you didn’t notice huh. It seems like you were unable to completely resist it, you know? Iya, as expected of a hero. If it were me, I wouldn’t even think about making you a companion” (Makoto)

Finding a fragment of magic power that was confined inside of Sofia, I felt admiration.

To think that he was able to charm Sofia.

That Empire hero, he doesn’t care as long as it is a beautiful girl?

I should properly make countermeasures so that it doesn’t create victims at Asora as well.

If it’s a power that can work even against Sofia, it is quite the threat.

“Ch-arm? Me? You, what are you…” (Sofia)

“You overlooked it huh. I wonder, maybe the true reason you didn’t kill the hero was because you fell in love with him? Fufufu, a Dragon Slayer did” (Makoto)

“…”

“As a sign of pity, that charm, want me to dispel it for you?” (Makoto)

Even if she is charmed, it doesn’t affect my battle with her.

But.

Seeing her flattering the Empire hero at random, she looked like a buffoon.

Sofia is not a threat that I need to stay cold to deal with.

Is it conceit, or maybe confidence?

I just felt pity for her.

“… Shut up” (Sofia)

“Sorry. I won’t do anything strange. How about it, can you let me eliminate that charm? Dispel magic is safe magic you know?” (Makoto)

“… I told you to shut up” (Sofia)

“And it seems like it is already something you can’t do by yourself after all. Even if you wait, it won’t turn into an advantageous development for you, you know?” (Makoto)

“That mouth of yours…” (Sofia)

“Hey” (Makoto)

The moment I was about to continue my words…

The back of Sofia burned.

No, it isn’t burning.

Flames shaped as dragon wings were spread.

“Shut it up!!!” (Sofia)

Her figure!

Teleportation?!

No… it is not!

It is simply at a speed I can’t catch with my eyes.

I look above.

A red trail as if drawing a line.

It is moving freely from left to right.

High speed movement.

So she still had such a card in hand huh.

She really does have a lot of tricks up her sleeve.

From several locations of the magic power body, the marks of cuts and black stains were being left.

Sofia who talked a lot, at this moment, she continued her attacks without saying a word.

“… Fuh~”

“When Mitsurugi returns, you are done for” (Sofia)

Hm, she talked.

But, that’s off the point.

No, maybe the ‘others’ are just way too out of standards?

“Mitsurugi -Lancer – won’t be returning. If you who has the power of several superior dragons is only at this level, then… our Shiki is a lot stronger than that Lancer” (Makoto)

That’s right.

While receiving the slashes I can’t see, I held confidence and answered Sofia.

At the same time, I told Shiki who has been sending me thought transmissions several times to ask for permissions:

‘Do as you wish’

  1. Okay, i know i don’t comment on this thing all that much, but DAM RAIDOU BE KILLIN IT. I honestly can’t believe Sofia got that angry though and it’s also comical that she believed she stood a chance.

    1. well she did eat 4 of the highest rank dragons and taken there power in to her body so she is powerful…..but camper to are op mc it like a kid with a bucket of water Vs 2 fire trucks with trained fire fighters ready at the go.
      she will loss and dye unless something unexpected happens.

  2. Makoto should finish his battle and end the dragon slayer’s life as she is intending on attacking our favorite mist dragoness and our favorite myriad colors dragon, though the second dragon may not be Makoto’s favorite.
    I will say as a fighter Makoto has improved, his long ranged combat was nearly perfect from the start (pretty much he does not miss) but his close ranged combat improved drastically after facing the dragon slayer just once and reading magic theory thesis.
    As a fight this is impressive and interesting.

  3. shit no please no don’t make Sofia fall completely to that scumhero, i don’t know why but it’s a terrible idea if that’s happen. sofia is a ‘wild’ character her strong will, free will, and her true to her nature is what make her somewhat charming

  4. thanx for the chapter.!!!!!

    shiki: master can i kill lancer!!!
    makoto: do as you wish!!!!
    shiki: (activate 7 rings at one)
    lancer and sofia: WTH!!!! is that…..
    shiki: now die!!!!!

    hahahah cant w8 for that fight1!!!!1

    1. You forgot the last 10 minutes of his begging

      Shiki:Waka-sama, can I go all out?
      Makoto:Wait for it.
      Shiki:Can I go all out?
      Makoto:Wait for it.
      Shiki:Can I go all out?
      Makoto:Do as you wish.

      1. Hahaha. This. You should’ve made it longer:
        Shiki:Waka-sama, can I go all out?
        Makoto:Wait for it.
        Shiki:Can I go all out?
        Makoto:Wait for it.
        Shiki:Can I go all out?
        Makoto: Wait for it.
        Shiki: Are we there yet?
        Makoto: Wait for it.
        Shiki: Are we there yet?
        Makoto: Wait for it.
        Shiki: Are we there yet?
        Makoto: Wait for it.
        Shiki: Are we there yet?
        Makoto: Wait for it.
        Shiki: Are we there yet?
        Makoto: gaddammit donk.. *cough* do as you wish.

  5. First Of, Thank you Reigokai for this many chapters

    Second . I don’t know if i’m the only one but.
    WHAT WAS THE QUESTION HE ASKED THE KALENEON SISTERS?
    srsly it’s been bugging me for the last 20 chapters i think

    1. If I’m not mistaken, he ask for their “name” as kaleneon royalty. I forgot was it in previous chapter or someone spoiler where i read it.

      So that they can use kaleneon as their base from now on. They’ll be using the “name” as justification on being in kaleneon.

  6. Uuuu~ Can’t wait for the next chapter~~
    Thanks for the chapter as always!

    400 comments is nothing!
    Seeing the story is at a great part already, people are getting hyped up as well as relishing this time until you go on hiatus.

    Stay safe on that 2 month thingy!

  7. Whoa, fast work!

    “Because if it’s her attack power, there’s no need to use strengthening even if her power increases by double after all.” So what? Does Makoto not want to display his full power? Does he feel the need to conserve his strength? If he killed them all, none of this would be a problem, because no one would be left alive to report it. I’m not exactly saying that I want Makoto to kill them, I just want them all to just shut the fuck up. Permanently.

    “All warfare is based on deception” Sun Tzu does NOT approve.

    “Next would be the Sand Wave Sazanami and the Invincible. If I kill those two, I would be able to reach the stage where I can devour Myriad Colors as well.” Biatch just went there. At this point Makoto should be engraving Sofia’s death into his heart. But no. I weep tears of frustration.

    Speaking of which, if Sofia suspects mental tampering on the part of Tomoki and refuses to have Makoto dispel the effect, the only logcial course of action is to immediately leave, find Tomoki, torture him until he confesses, then negotiate a removal from the Daemon Lord. Or have the Daemon Lord remove the effect first, THEN go and abduct Tomoki, to be tormented for all eternity in the Daemon Lord’s deepest dungeons, to the raucous applause of the readers. But none of these choices are “keep trying to pointlessly kill Makoto”. Her stupid, it BURNS!

    And that god-damned retard (I am running out of words to describe the mentally-challenged in this story) Rona; Chief of Intelligence and she acts like a fucking IDIOT. Makoto exhibits power far beyond anything the Daemons can field, literally a one-man army. There is absolutely no reason to continue this fight; Hibiki is alive, the mission is a complete failure. They risk losing their most powerful military assets against an opponent that doesn’t even dislike them. Io got dismissively thrown aside and Sofia is getting bitchslapped.

    So instead of negotiating a ceasefire and withdrawing or hiding in the shadows and abandoning Sofia and Io to their deaths for later leverage, SHE TRIES TO BACKSTAB HIM WITH MAGIC?! Oh Rona, you’re hopeless, a bumbling failure of a Daemon General. A cunning general watches everything and uses everything to her advantage. You are not that person.

    So they threaten to kill Tomoe, all the wrong people know Makoto’s secret identity and no one dies. Makoto isn’t even seriously pissed. Seriously, wtf is this.

    1. Makoto just so happens to like Io’s personality.

      Sofia is just realizing that she’s been duped, and is just instinctively lashing out at whatever’s around her.

      Makoto fully intends to kill her after she made it clear that she was aiming for Tomoe’s life. Don’t you know that when people as powerful as Makoto become calm in emotional situations, their several times more dangerous, at least.

      Rona was trying to decide which was a bigger threat to the demon race, the potential ally, or the one who was already an ally. She thought she would have a chance if she attacked with magic, but when Makoto gave her that warning, she decided that merely pissing him off was the most likely outcome of that attack, and retreated after securing a promise for him to meet with the demon lord.

      Is there anything else you’d like to say? Or are you done polluting our comments section with your bitching and moaning. …Wait, aren’t you that moron that was saying Makoto needed to side exclusively with the hyumans because he’s hyuman himself?

      1. “Makoto fully intends to kill her after she made it clear that she was aiming for Tomoe’s life.” Really, Mr. White Knight? Show me where he says that. Oh, that’s right – HE DOESN’T. And in this novel, if it isn’t said, it’s only hearsay. I said, “he should be engraving Sofia’s death in his heart”, not say “there’s no reason to let her leave”, which is just weak.

        “Don’t you know that when people as powerful as Makoto become calm in emotional situations, their several times more dangerous, at least.” Wrong. Even in the grip of Tranquil Fury, Makoto holds back on Io. Even when Rona tries to betray and murder him, she gets a warning. The evidence refutes your claim.

        “Rona was trying to decide which was a bigger threat to the demon race, the potential ally, or the one who was already an ally.” What are you going on about? She already KNOWS that Raidou is the single most important factor in the war. If he joins them, they win, no question. If he becomes an enemy, they lose, no question. If Io’s and Sofia’s deaths are necessary to get his support, then die they shall. Stopping the fight and leaving amicably is the best option. Joining Raidou against Io + Sophia is the better option. Killing Raidou is a bad option, as they still have to deal with the Heroes. Botching an attempt on Raidou’s life? Fucking stupid, especially since it was traced directly back to her.

        “Is there anything else you’d like to say? Or are you done polluting our comments section with your bitching and moaning.” “Our comments section?” Speak for yourself. You can bend over and take bad writing dry like the starry-eyed fanboy that you are, but some of us actually care about quality and provide constructive criticism, even if it’s on the level of “stop with the stupid “.

        1. Constructive criticism to who exactly? Reigokai? The others who read this because they can’t read Japanese? Constructive criticism only works when the author actually reads it, and unless you know something I don’t, the author isn’t reading the comment section of a fan translation website of his web novel, not his light novel, into English. If you want to provide constructive criticism, then go to the websites that the author maintains and post it there. But I wouldn’t waste my time if I were you, because the raws are so far ahead, it’d ruin whatever they’ve written since then. Plus, I don’t see anything constructive about what you said, just some shit about how you would do things. If you want to write a self-insert masturbatory book, go ahead, but there are plenty of people who are satisfied with what we’re reading here.

          1. Wait, there’s a light novel? I’d totally get it if it came out in English.

            ….but maybe after Reigokai finishes the web novel so we won’t suffer any copyright BS…

            Incidentally, what chapter are the raws on?

          2. Mario would be the best one to ask that. As for the ln, that’s what the manga uses I’m pretty sure. The manga isn’t exactly what the wn has.

        2. Wait, what? When does Rona judge Raidou to be the most important factor in this war? Just last chapter she thought he was in a bad situation between Sofia and Io.
          My impression was clearly that she wanted to take down one of the two threats to the demons in the fight, that’s all. As far as she understood, her ability was the Devil’s Achilles Heel, so there wasn’t anything wrong with her decision besides the lack of information.

      2. Did I prick your fragile ego, little man? I haven’t read the whole series, but I can read Japanese. That’s why I have not criticized the translator. Not once. Why? Because I know how hard it is to get right. None of this is his/her fault.

        “the author isn’t reading the comment section of a fan translation website of his web novel” No shit, Sherlock. The constructive criticism isn’t for the author, it’s to show and explain wtf is wrong to the other readers. You know, COMMENT on the quality of the writing. And vent my frustration at struggling through the prose, too.

        “Plus, I don’t see anything constructive about what you said, just some shit about how you would do things” Then you don’t understand what words mean. Explaining how something could be done better is the very definition of “Constructive Criticism”. Everything I’ve mentioned is based on the fundamentals of writing, the kind of shit you sleep through in High School. Compare this fight scene to that from any generic fighting manga and see how well it holds up.

        “If you want to write a self-insert masturbatory book, go ahead, but there are plenty of people who are satisfied with what we’re reading here.” I’m sure you are. But that doesn’t make me wrong, does it? Of course not, which is why you’ve resorted to insults.

        1. I’m not sure I agree that your criticisms are based on the fundamentals of writing. Maybe my basis for “fundamentals” is lower than yours, but the story has standard progression, wholesome characters that feel like characters instead of petty literary tools or flat representions of the author’s personal feelings, and believably realistic events given the setting.

          You quote a lot of tropes, but I don’t think I agree that they are required for a good writing. They can be used to a great effect, but also a very poor effect and I’d rather avoid getting a poor effect from an unnecessary addition if the author isn’t confident in making it work.

          The writing is different and it seems that the author is trying to go for exactly that: a different personal style. If you don’t like it, that’s fine and I can understand some of the frustration. I’ll also say, though, that I personally don’t mind it and some of your comments do feel harsh enough to compare the general Makoto hate in terms of bringing down the mood.

      3. @John Doe

        I believe the quote you’re looking for is:

        [[[[[If that’s how it is, Sofia would be the naive one.
        Because I do intend to kill her.
        The moment she reacted to the name Shen, she revealed the intentions of devouring Tomoe as well.
        Even if her ability is insufficient, there’s no reason to let her leave.]]]]

        Unless that’s not what the original Japanese said?

      4. @John Doe
        Lol… you probably werent reading bro. Or were you switching between Harry Pothead and her adventures? Or my little pony? Hahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha you are one funny bro

        Sincerely,
        Your Brother Joe

    2. -I don’t see makoto as the kind of guy murdering people to keep his secret identity
      -I admit he should take it more seriously for sofia
      -she didn’t admit it because the power make her trust tomoki, and she still want to fight makoto, she waited enought for it
      -the decission rona took: the 2 people that can easily become the greatest threat to the demon are fighting against each other. that’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to eliminate them. she judged makoto more “dangerous” than “usefull” because he don’t have a firm stance against hyman or pro-demon. she was already shown as a bitch.
      ———————

      I reread some of you past comments, and you often conplain about explaination when you just missed them
      e.g with shiki:

      -shika has 13 ring fused with his body
      -“How long will you accompany me for? I am looking forward to knowing. ‘Thirteen stepping-stones’” (Shiki)
      -“From the first step to the fourth, release. ‘Wand’, ‘Sword’, ‘Cup’, ‘Coin’” (Shiki)
      -Until the fourth step there’s: magic empowerment, body enhancement, magic power enhancement, equipment enhancement.
      – Seventh step, ‘Hell’ half-release. Equipping and activating”
      -Go, ‘Mist Temple, Nivlheim’. Bring about weakness
      -There’s points like not being able to release it unless he has until the fourth step activated, and that he can’t activate more than one or two others. And if he changes them in the moment, he is able to advantageously fight against most opponents.
      (ommited some lines)

      we have enough information to deduce how it work and yet you ask:
      “What’s this power system Makoto suddenly brings up? How many steps are there? What do these steps correspond to (e.g. Kiloton, Meter, Atmospheres, Celsius)? The author could have explained this earlier when things weren’t so hectic, like the rings. It’s also kind of relevant, so I can’t just overlook it.”

      after that, you often can’t understand the author intentions or a character:
      “The adventurers have served their purpose. They died to make Io look strong. He mentions their deaths and it goes right over Hibiki’s head. Yeah, a real Joan d’Arc she is. No denial, no “Yurusanai!”, no heroic powerup. A wasted opportunity. Maybe their bodies will be dug out of the rubble later and everyone can have a good cry. Maybe.”

      the purpose of the adventurers wasn’t to show Io strenght. his power was already know. it was
      -to show hibiki’s talent to attract people, and thair trust (faith). that is the base of the “nakama power” she asked
      -to bring the talk about discrimination

      you got mad because hibiki didn’t go full hotblooded rage
      she said “Io, again… my comrades…” (Hibiki), so she felt something
      and you missed the whole discussion before that showed that since naval’s death she changed and accepted “death” in war, and was now prepared to see her comrades die. I though it was evident that it was parts to show her character development.
      on the other hand if she goes full rage mode, you would have probably said “as a hero and the leader she need to keep he head cool to make good descision”…

      basically your problems
      – you can’t focus long enough to read a chapter without missing elements, or just read an entire explanation
      – you can’t connect 2 dots and deduce things that aren’t explicitly said
      – you can’t understand that differents character have differents personalities, moral values, ways of thinking and desires. you always put your own way of thinking, and call “bad writting” when things don’t go the way you want.
      -you think you know everything better than other people and don’t accept when people show you that you are wrong
      -you put your lack of mental aptitude on “bad writting”
      – and for the cringe, you name yourself “john doe”, the man who have all the knowlege.
      How f*cking arrogant and pridefull can you be?

      honestly, if you don’t like this WN, just don’t read it and don’t comment here. we don’t need you shit-level of “critisism”

      PS: when a character is clearly superior in a fight from a manga, it’s either boring of ended in one page

      1. @redcolonel

        I don’t think John Doe is the name of someone who knows everything. Pretty sure it’s the name used when the police have a dead body and they can’t identify who it is. “John/Jane Doe.”

        Perhaps you’re thinking of John Galt?

      2. @Blue
        I was referencing to the TV serie john doe, a woke up with no memories or identity and as been called “john doe” for the reason you said (default name for people with unknow identity). in the serie he is color blind and know everything (apart from his identity).
        Even if it’s not related, it made me cringe

        1. Oh wow. Is that what it was? I should check that out with my tv drama loving fanily members.

          Still, you don’t know if that was John Doe’s username namesake, so it might be a bit far to jump to the conclusion that the intent was to brag about his knowledge.
          I personally would have interpreted it to be more a title related to anonymity, like this one guy I saw on Youtube trying to start a religious argument under the name “john smith”.

      3. @Psychronia
        probably not what he wanted.
        I just thought about it when I wrote “knew everything” and thought “it’s not impossible”
        Ok, I take it back.
        though it change nothing that he look arrogant and pridefull

  8. lol, THE BURN, honestly i really need to read sofia POV when se gets the conquest of kaleneon. this makoto is too much of a badass this arc. i have a doubt thou, why isn’t he using his “arrows”, like the magic arrows he has a pretty damn good archery.

  9. heehe r.i.p motoki. once the charm is undone i guess sophia would so pissed off that killing him alot times is not enough

    well he got his desert though hahaha

  10. Tnx for the chap😘

    I really hope that Makoto “de-charm” Sofia…even if she’s a muscle brain I like her character and to see her join Tomoshit harem would be too much for me…It’s better to see her die…

    But this chapter…WOAH!!!!!!!!!

    [Raido]”Io, Rona, Sofia…this is a warning: if u want to continue this fight…
    ( •_•)

    ( •_•)>⌐■-■

    (⌐■_■) …YOU WILL DIE!!”

  11. sofia did all those just to somehow destroyed the magic formed spirit and just reformed it again by makoto in seconds!!

    just like i thought he’s just using and forcing his mana leakaged without cost of magic thats cooler than susanoo from naruto if you asked me and if he removed those rings ill expect some muscle pumping or whole body or enlarging transformation naturally ^^. Like Rona and Io said its stupid to use gold and make copper unless its overflowing like water they csnt use it like makoto does XD.

    Aaawww~~ sofia go dere dere on trashmoki.. sofia♡tomoki… cute….
    NOT!!! they fit as one word “GARBAGE!!!”

    Yeah!!! “Rocket Punch!!!” yeah~ i feel you makoto, when i wash a kid i think “Rocket Punch” is a cool move ^^ also that homing laser is a mans dream alright! but why call “natto laser”? im thinking of a japanese food that is sticky lolx

      1. yeah that spur of a moment means also isz that the you as of now remembered your old kid days of what you want to say in the past or so and just blurted it out for such lingering feelings sonetimes

  12. Do as you wish!!!! Oh God, finally finally finally makoto got serious. Hahahaha…
    What if mitsuru die? Will he?
    I think the idea of absorping other dragon is bad. You know it’s better to do the master servant relationship with both party agrees unless rona cant do it so she is forced to kill the dragons and eat them. But she cant possibly utilize all of the dragon skills she absorbed to fully 100%. It takes time.
    Thank you so much for the great job.

  13. I think raidou play around too much… as a soldier … the most effective way is to eliminate high profile threat asap. he drag out the duration even after he decide to kill her.
    i dont know maybe he naive untill someone close to him truely die, not dying die-dead and stay dead. then the late regret would wake him up.

  14. Even after having the power of 4 dragons, Sofia still cannot win against Root. And now she dreams to defeat the devil who can treat Root like a lizard? lol.

    And due to her pride, she denies the fact that she had traces of being charmed by trashmoki. Dammit, Makoto you better erase that charm, even if its against her will. I don’t want trashmoki to get another girl, a strong one especially.

    But you know what outcome I find better? Makoto captures Sofia and becomes another of his retainers. Probably she will follow him with the excuse of one day she will defeat him herself. Another tsundere+yandere onee-san joins the party doesn’t sound so bad for me.

    Thanks Reigokai, and you know what’s more impressive? 3 chapters in 3 consecutive days!! Man, are you in the post-growth phase or something lol. Thanks for your efforts.

    1. If Sofia threatened to kill and eat my little sister/girlfriend/cute kohai/pet puppy, my only concern at that point would be how to best reduce Sofia to a greasy red paste. Does that mean war with the Daemons? Bring it.

      With Mio and Tomoe by my side, I shall be a Shura of Vengeance. In my wake, the greatest of their fortresses shall be reduced to rubble and their fields littered with the broken bodies of their most potent warriors. I will breach the heart of the Daemon Lord’s strength and he shall know fear at my approach. I will rip his beating heart from his chest and hold it before him to inform him of his fate. And as the life fades from his eyes, I will lean close and whisper:

      “No one ever threatens my people, dead man. No one.”

      1. I’m probably feeling a bit backed up from all this foreplay and no payoff in the writing. But it would be nice if that actually happened. I doubt it, which makes me sad.

  15. im imagining a POV of a laser that was fired….

    ————–
    while sofia disappears from the field..

    Laser: Where did that sunnofagun go?!

    Sofia: It wont find me here :3..

    Makoto: (psst!! she’s hiding over that rock..)

    Laser: Yeah!!! Thanks boss!!

    the lasers curve going to sofia

    Sofia: !!!! shit!! it curved!!

    Laser: GOT”YA B*TCH!!! XD

    then the laser explode!!!

    (god i gotta love it if it lime that XD)

    1. Rona’s POV:

      The hyuman shaped magic power of Raidou grew a third arm from around the armpit and grabbed Io, and just like that, it separated from the body and flew to the sky.

      Io is unable to use teleportation.

      I see. From a realistic standpoint, he has been shut out of this fight.

      From a comedy standoint of view:

      Io got attached to a rocket then flew to the moon!!! XD

  16. thanks for the chapter. i’m hoping for another one the day after tomorrow.

    wow~ that Devil Trigger is truly powerful. i mean, i know it’s powerful but i didnt think it is to this extent..

    -“When Mitsurugi returns, you are done for” (Sofia)- death flag spotted!

    -At the same time, I told Shiki who has been sending me thought transmissions several times to ask for permissions:

    ‘Do as you wish’- i told ya it’s death flag.

  17. That last part about Shiki asking Makoto for permission to go all out on Lancer made me imagine the scene with kids in the back seat nagging their parents with “Are we there yet?”.

    Shiki: “Can I kill Lancer now?”

    Makoto: “Not yet.”

    Shiki: “How about now?”

    Makoto: “No, please be patient for a bit.”

    Shiki: “He just mocked me for being on the defensive. Can I kill him now?”

    Makoto: “Shiki, please, I’m trying to have a conversation with Sofia.”

    Shiki: “Hey, how about now?”

    Makoto: *sigh* “Do as you wish.”

    Shiki: “Weeeee!!!”

    No wonder Makoto seemed a bit distracted during his fight. 😀

  18. Kill kill kill that annoying sofia -.-
    Sheesh, makoto how many times does she have to try to kill you for you to finally effin finish her -.- pllllzzz I thoight she could be saved but Mio and Tomoe are the eternal duo and if sofia threatens tomoe? Sorry, effin wreck that bi*ch -.-

    Buuut on the other hand, thankee for the chapter!!! You’re awesome 😄

  19. About Sofia …

    … I get the impression that she’s actually not all that good at utilizing the dragon’s full power (well … those dragons had – at the very least – thousands of millenia time and experience) or even just tap into it, so I guess she that she used some kind of trick when it comes to defeating them (as well as whatever else it was that she did to them).

    Though Trashmoki’s confidence should have taken quite a blow thanks to Sofia … is charme eyes (against his fear of looked down and being bullied by others as well as tool to boost his ego and as tool to statisfy his lust), his immortality at nighttime (against his fear of dying) as well as his new and prized nuke (to defeat the strong ones he couldn’t possibly hope to defeat by regular means) all didn’t do the job against Sofia (at least as far as he knows) so I wonder what he’s planning to do from now on.

    Somehow I have the feeling that we won’t see much of the fight of Lancer vs. Shiki … ´Lancer is already defeated or we get a few comments from Hibiki and/or Lancer about how outmatched Lancer actually is …

    Anyway … @Reigokai … thanks for the chapters & have a save trip.

  20. Thanks very much , kai -senpai … I remember the struggle and makoto sofia earlier, she did not understand anything he said … now he can speak comun language believe that his enemies will suffer kkkk loved that side of it sarcastico.
    Obrigado.

  21. Wow, fuck Sofia. Killing those dragons. I just wish the author would be quicker with it and finish it up, the author, not the translator. Although if he sped up too I wouldn’t complain either. 😀

    1. Well, she doesn’t necessarily kill them. I think it means she “kills” them like she killed Mitsurugi, so she has just subdued them.

      1. Nope, she whole heartedly killed them, she says she didn’t receive their cooperation and then consumed them, then found out she could interstate their powers with her. Those superior dragons’ powers she’s using, are dead.

        1. Oon the topic of superior dragons dying, can someone refresh my memory on that?

          I know they have infinite lifespans, but what happens when they die? Are they dead for good or do they reincarnate after a while?

          I feel like I’m confusing the rebirth bit with a certain other novel featuring supreme dragon existences.

    2. I only hope this story arc is finished by the translator before he goes for a few months.

      It amuses me though that the ‘charm’ has been placed. Does that mean that there will be weekly dispels in Asora? May be he can ‘dispel’ the goddess’s blessing lol

    3. As someone that loves women that can kick ass, whether protagonist or antagonist, I was quite angry when learning that that things charm thing worked on Sofia.

  22. Thanks for the chapter~!

    Makoto’s not even breaking a sweat now, compared to last time when he was caught off-guard. So Sofia has to die…I wonder if he would be able to dis-associate the essence of the superior dragons’ she devoured after killing her and making them Tomoe’s subordinates. They might be way weaker, but they should be useful pieces nonetheless.

  23. Wow thanks for the chap. Question
    1 makoto power really magic cuz didnt he get sekai from tsukiyomi and before he learn brid?

    2 if rona really have a magic canceller then it kinda odd they are afraid of dragon.

    3 does it really say crush u? Consider his mind set is kill wont it be i will kill u? Sound more threatening also

    1. 1-
      as far we know, what makoto is using is magic power, he has being doubling his power with archery over and over, exponential growth, it’s basically like having unlimited magic at this point, exept he doesn’t know methods to actually use it all

      so he use “inefficient” methods, considered wasteful by any other magician, but if you don’t care about the cost, many interesting stuff can be done, like that pure magic power golem or eating someone else’s magic power with dark element like he did to shiki

      2-
      dragon not only have strong magic, they have strong bodies as well
      if we assume her magic canceler is not directional, both sides just end up with the strength of their bodies, and dragons still wins

      3-
      makoto’s got a big magic golem with big fists and can grow more of those arms at will, “crush” is a more visual representation of what he would do to rona if she continued

    2. id rather say that rona’s ‘magic skill is just a drawback from her and wont affect makoto at all and just saved her ass by making makoto gave her a warning.

      if she had that incredible skill she would’ve planned to kill to hero immediately than bother makoto first y’know.

        1. Something has just occurred to me. Sakai was fine when goddess-blocking power was activated, wasn’t it?

          Since Sakai isn’t magic so much as it is a god’s skill, does that imply Tsukuyomi is actually stronger than we think?

      1. She was just ranked higher cuz she is creation type. Like kinda like u have a boss cuz he is uni grad but ur more exp. But for the magic cancaller i think it cancel a specific magic group. That y demon arent affected.

        Yeah i too agree sekai cant be magic more like a manifestation of his will physical?

      2. seriously, if he can do that we would’ve read from now on, he goes saying using [sakai] on perception and concealment if thats true

      3. @Psychronia: I think he could still use Sakai after they used that ring because he received that power from a different god. I guess that the demons created a method against this goddess specifically. Or more like they could study her powers only so they ended up with a method that works only against her power.

  24. Dude, fuck sophia for eating dragons. This stomp is going to be sooooo satisfying. I can only imagine that Makoto then reforms the dragons or something by studying her magic power. We’ll have to see what the author has in store. Thanks for the chapter!

  25. So Regokai, how many virgins souls do you need as a sacrífice? I’m truly starting to think that you are a GOD translator just rest to know if you are the evil or good kind. As always thanks for the chapter and is awsome to finally see Makoto OPness throug someone else eyes. I wonder really how strong is sofia to absorb 4 superior Dragons, and how does that works? Did she killed then or they lend them their power, and whats her true relationship with Lancer.

  26. I want to know did makoto still wear the red ring that limit him ? because now he doesn’t suppress is magic power from leaking out and no one seems to say just by the leakage ” we’re fuck up” when in the beginning of the story the was ” wtf someone that might be stronger than me”.

      1. nope he’s using sakai as a perception in his surroundings not hiding and he can only use sakai for one thing at a time. So the high possibility he is still wearing a ring, since he cant also use all of his magic power just a part of it. That just mean there is still a leakage from him.

        1. But there is the time that even the bishop of the church can’t detect his magic power right? When they were called by the church because of their potion being very effective and sold at a very low price. he’s using Sakai when he was being interviewed on that particular event.

      2. no im very sure can use sakai on one thing not two, if that true he wouldve made that body magic ln “strenghtening” and “concealment” or perception and strengthening yknow?

      3. I always thought that the sakai was to furthermore suppress his magic power without the need of wearing anymore rings because he started using sakai for magic suppression after his “training” so I just thought that since he got stronger, the more magic power he had to hide also.

      4. @ countrymage

        no… that was the skill of his subordinate tomoe that accidentally been activated and it also happened accidentally on meeting eva

      5. seriously, if he can do that we would’ve read from now on, he goes saying he is using [sakai] on perception and concealment if thats true, but he still says that he is using sakai on one thing

    1. The Magic Absorbing Rings? Ofcourse he still wears them, Makoto’s magic power is so great that he has trouble hiding it. If Makoto wasn’t wearing them, he would be like Broly and everyone and I mean everyone would be able to detect him and stop moving because a huge monster just appeared in the battle field and also back then Makoto’s power is equivalent to 10 Demon Lords, who knows how huge it is now.

    1. The thing about heroes that they are a total cheat. Blessed by the gods and grow from within.
      That is solely dangerous and irresponsible giving such power to someone with a taste of danger to the world.
      From this side, Trashmoki’s charm eyes power can grow if he trained enough. That solely dangerous so its impetus he can be such a dangerous threat even to superior powers.
      So he really need to die before all hell loose.

  27. I cant wait for next chapter. Is author will give Sofia route or death flag? I think with tendency like Shiki arch, maybe Sofia become member Asora next time.

  28. thanks for the chapter! 3 in a row feel so good!

    “As I thought, that kid there was at least cuter than you”
    TRIGGERED

    So, shiki reached the level of a superior dragon

  29. Just read from 157, what fun. Though even though Makato says he plans to kill Sofia I can’t see it happening. First there is no reason to offer to remove the charm affect on her if she is going to die either way. Second it’s not in his nature, the number of things he has killed is rather small, either accident or necessity. Third I’m beginning to think he will likely ad her to his subordinates in the same way as Shiki Mio and Tomoe, I think this due to her strange ability to eat dragons, probably not fully hyuman.

    Thanks for the hard work

    1. Yes, I also think that the best thing Makoto would do is to incapacitate Sofia in the fight, I really doubt he would just kill her. I think the best way to interpret what Makoto is saying is that he will fight with an intent to kill or in other words, just fight her seriously. But who knows, Makoto might actually kill her since the author likes plot twists. I can’t even predict what might happen in this fight.

    2. The no of people Makoto killed by accident is small? He’s hardly been in this world for a few years or less and has already devastated the demon and human armies, creating a lake in the process!

      Tho I agree with the rest.
      Can’t trust the author tho, I thought Hibiki’s swordswoman companion who was a demi-hyuman hater would cause Makoto some problems or at least have some sort of effect, but the author just killed her off for character development.
      Maybe author plans to kill Sofia to show Makoto’s change? Don’t want that tho, kinda like her. At least she’s not scheming or trying to use Makoto like the majority of the women in this series like Rona, the empire’s princess, the lady from the [‘protect’ the Japanese] country, or the first hyuman Makoto killed.

      1. Well Makoto already show great change.He became much more professional and cunning.Whether Sofia is killed depends on her strength to be honest since from what i see, Makoto use killing as last resort or against enemy that kill his companion so if Sofia is strong enough to force Makoto into corner, he will have no other choice but to kill her.But seeing her level of power right now, i guess unless there is some twisted like dying from backlash from her own power, the chance of death is low.

      2. By accident I was thinking more like the couple of demons before meeting Tomoe. Sure he attacked but didn’t expect the result. As for his previous battle with Sofia killing a lot of the surroundings I half forgot about it, I mean it probably hasn’t even registered yet that he killed them, since he has only just learnt he was the one that caused all that destruction. So since he isn’t aware I kind of just ignored it.

      3. sofia will die since she already proclaimed that she will kill tomoe or eat her, and that makoto sees her as an enemy enough to kill, so there’s already no salvation in her. Since root said Makoto has a strange kind of fate around him, consider this a fate of killing sofia though i’ll say that the one who’ll truly kill sofia is not him though.

      4. Well i think that Makoto is the type that will only kill after Sofia really kill Tomoe. Of course if she is the hateful type (spoiled,thinking that she is the center of the world and only know to blame other whenever she doesnt get what she want and try to get that at all cost instead of improving herself (like antagonist from 3rd rate drama, i hate that type the most)), Makoto, or anyone with sane mind, will kill her for sure but Sofia is just a battle junkie that love fighting strong opponent and getting stronger.That type is troublesome to deal with but not hateful, even admirable since they actually put their life on the line to do what they want.

        1. But someone pointed out that for a battle junkie, she sure tries to end fights quickly and loses her temper when the fight doesn’t go her way.

          It sounds to me like she’s more of a bully that pretends to be a good sport just to get an excuse to lord her power over you some more.

  30. The part about Sofia being charmed was the best! She was probably trying to anger Makoto by comparing him to other men but Sofia ended being humilliated when she found out about the charm.

  31. Somebody who read further could spoil me what will happen to Sofia and the superior dragons? My E-mail is [email protected] .Thanks. (Yes, I could wait for the followings chapters but 1) I am not a patient one, 2) I rarely (but really rarely) feel surprise when I read, watch, … so spoiling don’t ruin the fun to me. (I am always establishing theories, ideas, … when I read, …. And a lot of them. So, in a sense, I expect the unexpected. It spoil a bit of the fun but I can’t do anything about it.))

  32. This opness kinda remind me of satou from desumachi with the
    –‘Heh~’ or ‘that so?’ then goes ‘what?!’ feeling supprised but ended up with ‘well you know, it is not really a big deal~ i just used a little bit of my sea level mp to create this magic and—‘ — feeling
    Now shouldn’t he now know that he is strong enough to to make even the fight with sofia feel like kid play and heck he didn’t even sweat

  33. except makoto himself dont like sophia very much and i doubt tomoe and mio would want her in their familly since she tryed to kill makoto. shiki was different in this aspect as they didnt feel he was traitening. more over makoto said he will kill her but my guess is he wont be able to do it in this fight because something will interfert or he will think he managed to kill her but she just end up hightly injured somewhere else.

  34. I wasn’t expecting new chapters to be releases so soon. Thanks for that!

    You aren’t gone yet, yet I already miss you :/

    Do take and share your photo’s of your trip, I’m sure we are all curious of how much fun you will be having :p

  35. Very impressed with the release rate Reigokai, it’d be great if you could keep this up till you go on your trip, though we know you have your limits. Please do your best.
    Personally I’m not sure if having another translator fill in while your gone would be worth it, unless they’re veteran like you, yoraikun or the like, since if the translation quality drops it would lower the enjoyment.
    If someone has to fill in, they could translate some more of the side stories maybe? Whatever works.

    We’re seeing some interesting character development from Makoto here and how he’s changing. It’s now becoming obvious that it isn’t ‘dumb’ that he hasn’t noticed himself being the Devil as some people have suggested, but that he can’t handle the idea. Basically, he’s in denial and is rationalising it to himself as someone else having shown up and wiped out the armies after he left since he ‘knows’ his attack couldn’t have done it. This is both due to his misconception of just how powerful he really is and his own inability to accept having killed thousands of people. So even if Sofia calls him the Devil to his face he’s just confused and thinks she’s talking crap.
    Even so his view is shifting slowly due to recent events, seen this chapter as he’s told that people like them can easily conquer a country and with him slowly accepting it might be true when comparing his own power to the ability of the kingdom and empire forces.
    He’s also having a strange state of mind where he gets involved with battle and feels calm, even starts to enjoy it to the point that Shiki warned him to not get so absorbed he forgot his surroundings. Showing that there is a different side to Makoto from his normal japanese high school student persona that may be a natural part of him that’s only emerging due to experiencing real life and death battles for the first time. He’s even becoming able to measure whether it’s necessary to kill someone objectively without feeling hesitation at such thoughts from his real world values.
    I’m looking forward to how his character evolves from here.

  36. There’s only 400 comments we need more comments let’s try to push for 600 of somewhat meaningful message by the 23.

    Thank you for the chapter.

  37. Thank you so much Rei-san!! I am amazed that you could translate many chapters very quickly!!

    I enjoyed your translation, so, like many other people who were commented here, I would like to say that another translator might not be as good as you, therefore, waiting for you to come back would be the best choice. <3

    thank you again!

  38. So shiki can now take care of a superior dragon……than tomoe who is a superior dragon……is now a super superior dragon? IDK
    Arigatou for the chapter, boku no hero rekogai san

    1. I think their are chapters that talk about Tomoe becoming far stronger than she was once she got contracted. So superior dragon without contract not as tough as contracted superior dragon.

  39. So he has a susanoo? And someone with the power to destroy a country can’t touch him, he needs to start battling gods at this point.
    Can’t wait to see what happens next!

  40. Neat.
    So i found this a few days ago and shotgunned it all.
    I am learning Japanese, some ability and such.. Enough to read bills and live here for the most part. Though reading proficiency needs work.
    so I am wondering, did anyone take up the baton for while Translator san is off doing business for a while.

    If not, i might be able to SLOWLY mind you, work on it. I need to check the raws and figure out where in the Raws they are at though..
    Plus lots of special terms I’m sure that are this light novel only that’ll give me strife.
    but hey if no one else is wanting to give it a whirl, might as well try.
    I can’t find the email though…
    I saw it in some chapter before, concerning the side stories… but i didn’t copy it and now i just can not find it.

  41. Reigokai-sama cites the more than 400 comments made on 1 day of the previous chapter and this? That surpassed those same 400 but only in half a day ^^

    Thx by chapter translated !!! I will be looking forward for the next XD

    1. I think it’s just the stars aligning.

      The stars which are this being the climax arc, plenty of implications for the future to discuss, the hiatus announcement, and a couple of specific commenters talking about topics that fuel the flames like Tomoki vs Hibiki or John Doe’s dislike of the writing style & Makoto’a personality.

  42. another chapter in just 1 day??? tnx!!!

    oh yeah Io is alive! and Sofia gonna die! HAVE MY WISH BEEN GRANTED ALREADY??? and to add, she actually got charmed,killing her in this “unexpected” circumstance will be priceless. its also sure feels nice to have that ego boost on Makoto

    btw did Sofia ate them as in ate their power or ate the dragons completely? she can use Mitsurugi’s ability to some extend and he is still alive

  43. I don’t want him to kill Sofia, at least not yet. I kind of have a soft spot for female blood knights. But it looks like he will really kill her at this rate. But I loved how rona understood that she has made a big mistake in antagonizing the MC.

  44. This arc is satisfying our hunger to see Makoto go Madara mode …
    I’m doubting if Makoto will really kill Sofia cause of he’s personality but I can see him changing already maybe he will really kill her …
    Since he got a Susanoo now will we see him making a meteor strike lol
    Thanks for the chap ~

    1. Lol,
      Meteor maybe not, but mind you makoto is the DEVIL who created a lake where before was nothing….
      So, if that stuff cannot be a meteor,….. We can name it “euma Elish ” or wathever noble phantasm you want, like a boss …..
      Makoto denied he is the DEVIL, cause he would be at the same level like tomoe and mio…. When They erased a town only for fun…..

  45. Iya~,what will be the reaction of Makoto upon learning the magic trashmoki did the “Nuclear Bomb” magic…

    Will Makoto talk to him or give him some warning with pressure,about bringing those mass desteuction weapons…

    1. Atleast it shaves away his life when he uses it. He probably can’t cause too much damage to the world without killing himself.

  46. We have already seen how ruthless Makoto can be when he has the full resolve to kill a hyuman ( lil adventurer that caused the ring explosion R.I.P mini tomoe 1.0 ;-;) so I can not see any reasons why Makoto would drag his feet with killing Sofia. Even if shes some damsel in distress who needs power for some noble deed, Makoto doesnt save everyone who needs saving. I also feel that forming a contract with sofia is highly far-fetched because she wouldnt be able to fulfill the conditions for having a master and servant contract and also she doesnt offer much on the table. Makoto formed a contract with shiki because of his immense knowledge right? So yea, I’m expecting a swift kill (more like hoping for one lmao).

    1. She really can’t form a contract with Makoto since she’s a hyuman. I think Tomoe stated that only mamonos and demi-humans can make a contract with a hyuman.

  47. hey anyone can verify this ? when shiki making a pact with makoto tomoe and mio said he’s to weak and he will be absorb by makoto if they did’nt put on the ring

  48. Wow, there is nearly 500 comments after only 24 hours… not sure how I feel about Sofia.. I can’t determine whether she should live or die until i see how she acts after Makoto dispells the charm. Can’t wait for the meeting with the demon lord.

  49. So uh…I was rereading the chapter and noticed that Io was thrown towards Stella.

    He’s totally going to run into the other two followers, isn’t he? Especially since Reft is apparently a former subordinate. A…Are they gonna kill him?

      1. I don’t think so?

        IIRC, Stella Fort is basically at the frontlines, whereas Kaleneon was a small country deep in Demon territory (that’s why Eva was surprised to hear Tomoe give a report on the state of Kaleneon during the Variant attack)

  50. I’m guessing Rona will end up thinking something along the lines that she was never playing him, he was simply leting her play.
    Much more logic than a 360 turn in personality, even more logic with the power gap.
    She was never a threat.

  51. AWESOME. arigato gosaimasu reigo-Sempai.
    By the way makoto already give his veredict: ”Iya, as expected of a hero. If it were me, I wouldn’t even think about making you a companion”

  52. Yes please Makoto kill that Sofia just how you killed that bitch cunt adventurer who caused havoc Asora
    And Shiki has now become stronger just as much as a superior dragon?! I wonder what level is the current now.

  53. “How exaggerated. You are able to destroy a country with only this level of power?” (Makoto)
    Do the authors enjoy making their MC retarded? I wonder

    “she has the power of 4 superior dragons” poor superior dragons, having no dignity, being played with left and right

  54. Yeah, Tomoki is really a threat, is eyes are a power gived by a god so even if Tomoki herself as a been is really minor, that power is of a great rank, it’s like a authority just like Sakai, though the difference between both is the nature of the power itself and the nature of the god. A countermeasure is needed even if is just to relieve.

    The other superior dragons are really that weak? And they are dead? If that’s the case they will revive or they immortality is just of that level? It was mentioned tgat they have long live but when that live reach the limit they reincarnate. Also, I think that the reason of why Sofia could defend against nuke with the power of Shadow and Water is because of make a pseudo-dematerialise to reduce the damage, strengthened his body to endure the rest of the damage and healed herself constantly at high speed to survive.

  55. I thought Makoto was going to get quite shocked/mentally unstable when he learned that he killed thousands and thousands of soldiers while trying to ‘pester’ Sofia and Lancer, but it doesn’t look like he cares.

    Maybe because he still doesn’t believe that he is the Devil tho.
