Chapter 226: Cherry blossom viewing party

And so…a few days passed after that.

Today, we are in the spacious grounds.

Right now we are literally in the middle of cherry blossom viewing.

The place was being filled with the merriness of drinking and singing.

At first, the residents were hesitant to eat and drink in a shrine that reveres Gods, but after a while into the cherry blossom viewing, they are completely enjoying it.

Explaining a variety of things probably played a big part as well.

Just that…even though this is the first cherry blossom viewing we will have, there were a number of sea races that were unable to participate.

This place isn’t that far from the sea.

Even so, I can’t move the shrine.

I was thinking about postponing the event because of that, but at that time, Serwhale-san requested me permission to expand the sea and reduce the land.

And said that we should do a cherry blossom viewing with everyone in the future after a few more times.

The Neptunes and Sari decided on the races that would be participating in the viewing this time, and has become a scene where the sea and land races are participating together.

Serwhale-san is currently drinking Sake, eating food, and enjoying the cherry blossom viewing with the land and sea races without exception.

…As I thought, Serwhale-san is truly worthy of being called as ‘-san’.

The crab people are beginning to dance, and the tuna people were earnestly looking at the cherry blossoms and the flowers as they drink the Japanese Sake of Asora in a small cup.

The other person that worked hard in this, Sari, was at my side in the beginning, but when I told her to move around the place, she obediently went to the many other races -centered mainly in women- and was enjoying herself in a calm manner.

Even now…eh? She is not there.

I search for Sari with my eyes.


I found Sari who is now sprawled at the top of a tree branch for some reason.  

Ah, she is being brought down by the Lorelais.

This place has a large variety of drinks after all.

She probably drank a mix of things and got drunk.

It seems like there are people nursing them, so there’s no need for me to go.

“An open and tolerant God, is it. It is certainly true that in Edo there were festivals at the Shinto shrines, and it had become a place where people gather and enjoy their time. It is a hard to comprehend part, but after doing it myself and seeing it with my own eyes, I am kind of beginning to understand.” (Tomoe)

Tomoe is with me.

She is not the type that makes much of a racket. It seems she likes to do things in a calm manner.

Well, a cherry blossom viewing is something like that.

There are people that consider the cherry blossoms as a simple excuse to hang out, and there are people who truly enjoy looking at the cherry blossoms.

There are people that consider the drinking as the priority, and there are also people that prefer to go through the many food carts.

Sometimes people consider morning is better, some that night is.

Even so, there’s no need to fight over it.

I think that people have different ways to enjoy things.

You don’t need to get in the way of the enjoyment of others and just enjoy it in your own way.

“It is not like the people of the past viewed their God lightly and made a racket, okay? As long as you possess the emotion of respect as the root, I don’t think the actions that come naturally from it are strange.” (Makoto)

That’s how I think.

There are many unconventional festivals as well, but that doesn’t mean we are looking down on the Gods.

Being merry doesn’t equal to insurrection.

Of course, it is not only on the basis of respecting the Gods, and there’s also the motivation that they will do their best on their next festival.

All of those points together make me like the festivals and the events in the Shinto shrines.

That’s why I am happy that I was able to enjoy cherry blossom viewing in Asora even if it’s slightly different.

If customary grand festivals and seasonal events are born, it would be great.

It has already been decided that there will be a gate connecting this Shinto shrine from the land and the sea.

This is something that I will definitely do.

I want them to visit the shrine at ease, and even if it is a religion, I don’t want them to get lost or have people die like in the Ise pilgrimage.

“There’s someone managing the place, and since the place is so spacious, it can even be used to teach the children.” (Tomoe)

“In my opinion, it doesn’t need to turn into a learning place. I would be happy if it simply becomes one of the places where people can just enjoy their time.” (Makoto)

“Yes. Whatever the case, we have to be grateful for the Gods that have gifted us something nice.” (Tomoe)

Drinking her small cup of Sake, Tomoe looked satisfied.

Her change of mood is kind of…fast.

With the matter of the shrine maiden-san, Tomoe seemed to be kind of snappy, but right now, there’s no signs of that.

Mio, who is mostly just by my side, was also like that, but right now, she is going around the various food carts and bringing me food.

Even though I am not sure if I can finish the stacked boxes of food that we brought for the cherry blossom viewing.

She really is merciless.

I thought I had eaten quite a lot, and yet, I feel like the amount of food has increased, and I am pretty sure it is not just my imagination.

I also feel like the stacked boxes of food are not matching the numbers of before…

“Well, Mio is enjoying herself in her own way, so that’s fine huh.” (Makoto)

Looking at Mio who is easily slipping through the tumult of people and drunks, I give up on the choice of eating everything.

I will just do my best to my utmost limit.

That’s for the best, probably.

“Waka-sama, regarding the magic power that is being taken when paying visits to the shrine, it seems like it isn’t to the point of bringing any harm to someone’s health.” (Shiki)

“Shiki, I told you that it is fine to take a break from work right now. In the first place, Touda told us that already.” (Makoto)

“However, it seems like there’s differences between people and considering that it is not a set amount, I thought it would be best to investigate just in case…” (Shiki)

“Well, yeah. Thanks, Shiki. For now, come drink and eat. Also, watching the many flowers that Touda has bloomed is kind of nice, you know?” (Makoto)

Touda made the cherry blossoms bloom just like she said.

There are many varieties of cherry blossoms, and there’s also the ones that only bloom in summer and fall.

In Japan, this spectacle can only be seen after growing them in a greenhouse and setting up the appropriate environment, and yet, this view is being spread in this grounds and in the forest.

It is quite the sight.

People that like this could probably be able to stay here for several days looking at it.

“No! I have a mountain of things to do like investigate the vegetation of this land and the environment of this forest.” (Shiki)

“Rejected. You will do cherry blossom viewing. Your work is done.” (Makoto)

“B-But…” (Shiki)

“If Shiki is working, other people might begin doing it as well. That’s why, today is a holiday. You have done plenty enough with just the investigation regarding the shrine visiting.” (Makoto)

“…Understood.” (Shiki)


Shiki has an addiction with work.

I also have a lot of work that I have to prioritize over sleep, so I do understand his feelings though.

In my case, as long as there’s nothing real big, I will certainly be working everyday, but…I don’t think that’s the same as being an addict to work.

The words that Shiki says: ‘I am okay’ and ‘I have free time’, I am beginning to understand that taking those words of his in face value is dangerous.

How to say it, this disposition of his is contagious or should I say, birds of a feather flock together. 

The subordinates of Shiki and the people that are closely related to him have the same trait.

Different from Tomoe and Mio, he was originally a hyuman, which is probably playing a big part in it.

Mio and Tomoe seem to have found sleeping as pleasant, but it looks like Shiki was not the type who liked sleep to begin with.

I remember him saying that when he became a Lich and was unable to sleep anymore, he was delighted.

Sadly to say, even when he made a pact with me and obtained a hyuman body, for some reason, he still possesses that constitution of being okay even if he doesn’t sleep -no, maybe it is more fitting to call it an ability.

It does seem like his workplace is the same, so I would like him to be a bit moderate with that special constitution of his.

For now, it looks like he is obediently doing cherry blossom viewing, but I am unsure if he will be able to hold for 30 minutes. It is Shiki after all.

“Touda, about the shrine visiting, I didn’t ask the detailed parts like the differences between people and the issue that it isn’t a fixed amount of magic power taken. There won’t be any problems occurring with that, right?” (Makoto)

After that fight on the name of a custom, we returned to the Shinto shrine with Touda, and we heard from her about the three temples counting the Shinto shrine.

From what she said, what I didn’t know at all was about the part about the homage, worshipping, and praying; well, in other words, the parts that were done when praying in front of Gods.

Saying it simply, just like when someone pays homage in a shrine with money, you also consume magic power here.

“Of course. Well, there are always exceptions in everything, but regarding the difference in individuals, it is simply to consume magic power that’s fitting depending on the capacity of the person. For people that have ten thousand, a hundred is taken: for people that have a hundred, one is taken. That’s how it would work. So it would mean, the people would be offering around 1% of their total in normal visits.” (Touda)

Touda was actively making contact with the residents.

When called, she would immediately appear close and answer, which was slightly mysterious.

The Orcs, Eldwas, Mist Lizards, Arkes, Winged-kin, Gorgons, and the fairies that are traumatized by Ema; it felt like she was going around introducing herself to everyone.

Truly a business-like attitude.

Thinking about her role here and in the Kuzunoha Company, I feel like she has the disposition for deployment.

Just that, in my opinion, if I were to go head hunting for personnel, rather than people who are outstanding, I would prefer people that have reasonable skills and will be working together until the end.

I have finally noticed that those are the requirements I am looking for.

It is also because we haven’t done the pact yet, but I feel like Touda is the former type.

I feel some sort of stiffness in her that’s hard to express in words.

It doesn’t only apply to her. I have felt this kind of thing a lot of times while in this world.

In the companies of the Showa era, being diligent was more important than skill when looking for personnel, but it is probably an old way of thinking in this era.

But leaving aside the seniority system, I am thinking about putting into practice the lifelong employments.

An enterprise.

Living that kind of lifestyle, we will do our very best and reward the employees for their service.

That’s what I want to do.

Oops, my thoughts derailed.

“In that case, people like me would be offering quite a lot.” (Makoto)

“Yes. But it shouldn’t feel like a burden at all.” (Touda)

“That’s true. The first time we did the homage, I didn’t feel anything after all.” (Makoto)

“Please do think of it as expendable magic power.” (Touda)

“Then what was that about the fixed amount and the exception you were talking about?” (Makoto)

“The answer would be the same. When it is a strong wish -a wholehearted wish- like for example; wishing for it every day several times, or taking years continuously wishing for it. Depending on the case, it might affect your very life.” (Touda)

“When you make a wish so strong and wholeheartedly…” (Makoto)

“Yes. If you wish strongly, you will end up offering a large amount of magic power. Thinking about the belief of the people of Asora towards this Shinto shrine, I don’t think it will be possible.” (Touda)

Wish for it strongly, moreover, they have to do it continuously for that to happen huh.

It is certainly true that this is a case that’s hard to consider in Asora.

“Right. It is true that there’s currently no need to worry about it.” (Makoto)

I taught everyone that when they pay homage, they have to tell the Gods of their current objective. Towards a God they can’t see.  

I told them that it was like a pledge to yourself.

Not the: ‘please make it come true’, but more like: ‘I am working hard in this objective, so please watch as I show satisfactory results’.

When they show results, they will come again and give their gratitude, and make their next pledge.

Also, I wanted them to have a different sensation of a God. Instead of that Goddess, it would be more like, a God that is close but you can’t touch. That kind of relationship.

“That’s how I think as well. Shiki-san’s worries are plausible, that’s why, I told him it is fine if he investigate as much as he wanted though.” (Touda)

“The magic power that is being offered will gather in a vessel, right? Is it fine to assume that the balls that you showed us are the *divine vessels* where it resides?” (Makoto) <Divine Vessel=神体><In this part, divine vessel refers to Shintai: an object where a deity resides.>

What Touda showed us as the divine vessels were two transparent clear balls and one ball that had a variety of colored lights inside it.

The transparent ones are the ones from the Buddhist temple and the Parthenon, and the one with light inside is from the Shinto shrine.

In other words, the light inside the ball is our magic power.

I was slightly bothered that it was all in the same ball.

Because the presence of those divine vessels should have differences between each other.

“The divine vessels, is it. Hm, there’s no problems with your interpretation, but strictly speaking, the vessels are more close to eggs. That ball will change its appearance as it accumulates magic power after all.” (Touda)

“…Heh~.” (Makoto)

As expected of a unique Shinto shrine.

So it is its form before being born.

Well, that’s fine.

In the first place, having magic power sucked as you go paying homage is not normal anymore.

“…By the way, Makoto-sama, offering magic power when praying to Gods works the same way even in Earth. Actually, this world is the strange one for not taking this system.” (Touda)

“Eh?!” (Makoto)

She read my mind?!

No, that’s not it. It is a system that’s used universally?!

No way that’s true!

“That’s way too farfetched. Even when I visited shrines in my world…” (Makoto)

“Most humans are not aware of the very concept of magic power, so it is a matter of course. They don’t use it, and they can’t detect it. Even if they were to consume a small quantity of it, there won’t be any harm for humans. It is an amount that wouldn’t even need one day to recover after all.” (Touda)


It is certainly true that I wasn’t aware of my magic power when I was in Japan.

So I have been offering magic power to the Gods every time I went to the shrine?

No, at the temple as well huh.

The church also?

Ah, now that I think about it, I haven’t attended church once.

“For some reason, I feel like I have peeked at the dark side of the world.” (Makoto)

“In a faraway future when magic power is known in Earth, there’s the chance that they will learn of this reality.” (Touda)

“…Yeah.” (Makoto)

“But well, leaving aside that talk, regarding the divine vessel, I think it won’t be long before it shows form. Just with Makoto-sama’s magic power, it has already received an enormous amount after all. But when speaking of its completed form, it would still need a long time. I will report when there’s some sort of change, so you can just enjoy yourselves.” (Touda)

“Understood.” (Makoto)

“Well then, I will go back to the residents to talk about Makoto-sama.” (Touda)

“When the cherry blossom viewing is over, we will do the pact in the presence of Tomoe and the others. Remember that.” (Makoto)

“Yes. I am looking forward to the name I will be receiving.” (Touda)

Touda disappeared.

Oh, she appeared where the Gorgons are.

When it is with those people, talk about me just gives me a bad feeling though.

Even so, it will probably turn into a girls talk, so I don’t think I want to hear it at all.

Talk between women is pretty toxic at times.

I can say for sure that it is without doubt something that’s best for men to not hear.

Well, I have an older and younger sister, so in my own house, moreover, in my very room, I could hear fragments of those kind of talks.

That’s why I know they are toxic.

Touda has most likely adapted to the Gorgons without any problems and enjoying a conversation with them.

There’s no need to worry about that, so I decide not to mind anymore.

…The party is going at full swing huh.

Since coming here, I have gone to many countries and have met a variety of people, but as I thought, I like this place the best.

Everyone has different shapes and appearances, so in a glance, it feels like chaos itself though.

But I absolutely want to protect this place.

Asora can be considered the very tracks of my stay in this parallel world.

With that reason in mind, I felt like I had to burn this sight into my eyes.

“Waka-sama?” (Mio)

“Mio, we have enough food alrea—wait, what’s that?” (Makoto)

It is Shiki.

There’s no way I would mistake him.

But, why is Shiki under Mio’s arm completely wasted?

“Please don’t say that. I went to the place of the Orcs, and I felt quite the possibilities in this ‘Surprise foiled frying’. I thought Waka-sama should definitely try it once.” (Mio)

“No Mio, I will gratefully eat that, but…what happened to Shiki?” (Makoto)

“This? He had equipment prepared and was doing a secret talk with a number of people about entering the forest, so I brought him down.” (Mio)

“Brou—” (Makoto)

“Even though we are having a cherry blossom viewing, this person really has no manners. I was discussing with Tomoe-san and Touda about having festivals like this every now and then -of course, it won’t be as grand as this one- and we were planning on what date they would be, and yet, this Shiki is just…” (Mio)

“Well, it is certainly true that it lacks manners. Yeah.” (Makoto)

Bringing him down is also questionable though.

Moreover, they are already talking about doing more of these festivals.

At some point in time, Tomoe was where Touda and the Gorgons are.

That must mean Mio was there not that long ago huh.

And, Mio saw that Shiki was planning on going to the forest.

“It would trouble the people if he were left on the ground, so I brought him here where there’s space. I will throw him somewhere where people can’t see.” (Mio)

You are throwing him?

That means you are going to be throwing him at some random place, right?

No wait, don’t go throwing him.

Abandoning him is also a no.

“No, I will look after him. Let’s have him lie down.” (Makoto)

“No way, to have him rest on Waka-sama’s lap is just…!” (Mio)

Who said I would have him rest on my lap?!

I won’t do that!

That would only make it hard for me to move.

I see. Mio must have drunk quite a lot already.

I believe that she won’t get controlled by the alcohol, but her self-control might loosen slightly.

“No, I will just have him rest.” (Makoto)

“Then I will take his place!” (Mio)

She is not listening at all.

Well, this is also an everyday occurrence here, and a part of what I have done in this world.

But the nice mood about my determination I had going a while ago has been dampened a bit though.

          2. These comments lacks elegance! What is wrong with the first person typin A?! We lives in a free world(lol)!!! We are free(lol) to type and say what ever we want(lol)!!! I demand free(lol)dom to be enforced! Glory to free(lol)dom and justice for the ‘A’ sayers!!!

      1. PLOT TWIST: He actually googled “English Alphabet”, clicked the first result (Wikipedia), copied the letter “A” and then pasted it in his comment.

      1. I object your disqualification,did you know what kind of monster lurk to get the first place just as i place that a 2 more comment show up you know

    1. I wonder what those divine vessels will turned into XD It would be cool to be something like divine beast that protect Asora or something like that… Divine beast Vah Medoh!!!! XDD

      1. he already has those. He has The sky king of the mountain, and The Wolfking of the forest, as well as that guy that emigrated to marry the ocean.

        and,to be fair, a fair amount of different citizens that sort of qualify for the title of divine beasts. Serwale and every single one of his closes staff except for Shiki.

    1. — “It would trouble the people if he were left on the ground, so I brought him here where there’s space. I will throw him somewhere where people can’t see.” (Mio) —
      Dang u Mio…

      A little typo?
      Serwhale-san requested me permission
      Serwhale-san requested -my- permission ???

  1. Aww. This was a nice moment where Makoto can be his mellow self and the Asorans can make merry. No workaholics allowed and the only way you’ll leave is either bloated or drunk! =w=

    Man. You know Bug is afoot when people are baffled by the idea of a tolerant god that’s welcoming of celebration on their land.

    1. Proof that bug isn’t related to japanese gods, since most of them have festivals… maybe that world wouldn’t be so crooked if she didnt enforced racism…

      1. In a sense all the world celebrates Christianity ya know… I mean, Christmas is a Christian party and celebrate the birthday of Jesus so… you know what I mean

  2. Thanks for the new chapter.

    Spoiler-san just want to say this:
    真(Makoto as Truth), 巴(Tomoe as Color), 澪(Mio as Route), 識(Shiki as Knowledge), and 環(Tamaki as Link).

    Feel free to imagine it~

    1. That’s right. How dare you.


      I won’t forget this. I won’t forgive this…

      Raizu. I’ll remember your name. You best sleep with a shotgun beside your bed from now on.

        1. I’m wondering whether or not introducing a number Yandere benefactors would be appropriate here.

          Going by the philosophy of “if you’re going to kill something, you might as well kill it a whole lot”, this seems fine, but something’s…missing.

    2. *points a laser targeting device at Raizu*
      This is Romeo Papa Two Niner calling Dispatch. I’ve warmed up the pot. Invite Truck-san over. Over.


  3. Thanks for the chapter~
    This chapter had all the hallmarks of a filler in all honesty I sorta just skimmed it but I guess all chapters can’t be awesome anyway can’t wait for more keep up the good work Reigo!

    1. More like obligatory cherry blossom chapter, like when we got the hot spring. Half filler, half custom. (A bit like The christmas episode of occidental serie)

  4. Instead of feathers of a bird flock together, I believe the expression is birds of a feather flock together

  5. …Wait what? Since when was Tomoe the calm type!? She struck me as the hot-blooded type that was also surprisingly calculative. Or rather, a cruel, cold type that liked to be hot-blooded when she had leeway. Was I wrong?

    Touda seems to be using her speed to do a very ninja-like “At your service” thing, huh? I could imagine her dressed in a butler suit…

    Meanwhile…”The Fairies that are traumatized by Ema”…is their official title now, isn’t it? It’s certainly easier to remember…

  6. Poor Shiki man. Knocked out and about to be thrown around like a rag doll. Again. Moreover, no Waka White Lap Pillow! The Tragedy.

    It’s sad because I was really hoping the fourth follower would take on at least some of his responsibilities as the bottom bitch of the followers, but as it stands…..

    ….Well, serves him right for being workaholic, I guess.

    1. I wouldn’t feel too bad for Shiki. The nature of the contract ceremony means that he’s a bad-ass in potentia at least on the level of Mio. This may just be my guess, but look forward to Shiki fully integrating with those rings. They’re like Shiki’s personal holy vessels. He formed a contract with a sort of implicit stipulation that they are a part of his being, but he can’t use them. So the Shiki right now is like someone who was wounded after forming a contract that can’t use their full strength. I’m pretty sure that’s part of why he’s able to shift back to his Lich form, and why his wilfulness seems to fluctuate.

      1. Oh yeah. That’s true. I mean, Shiki has already proven himself a match for an enhanced superior dragon like Lancer. Given the appropriate data, he could probably take down most of the others as well.

        The problem is that Shiki’s not the only one that’s growing. Tomoe’s ability to turn people into illusions and Mio’s studying of attack reflection make it clear that they’re constantly widening the gap as well. I’m not even sure if he’s capable of beating pre-contract Shen, even if he has info and prep time. Since the fourth follower is comparable to Tomoe and Mio as they are now, poor Shiki is doomed to the bottom tier it seems.

      1. Wow. New picture. I like.

        Eeehh… The Shikigami Miko, Touda, doesn’t use bow so I doubt that’s her.

      2. Thanks for the pics, I think I recognize almost everyone, except for the one girl with the bow, and the Tsun-like in the corner!!!!

  7. Well… why can’t Reigo-senpai post this late on nights that I live stream? Still, thanks for the chapter. Can’t want for the next one.

    Guys, I’d spoil the next chapter a little myself by saying that’s when the shrine maiden gets her name…but that was obvious and Raizu spoiled what it is. Also, I found out what happen to Spoiler-san in the other world. The picture I’m about to show… is not for the faint of heart.

    1. where have i seen this train before??? i know it shouldve been for children, so i wondered it turned into a horror scene, fck dud

  8. I kinda don’t like how Touda calls Mokoto by his given name….Waka is what she should be saying…..what makes her so special? I demand for an amendment concerning this.

    1. Since they haven’t gone through with the pact yet, he’s technically not her ‘young lord’ yet. Which may be why she’s using his name instead of Waka. Will have to wait and see if she changes it after they do the pact.

  9. .     ∧_∧ Thanks!!
         (´-ι_-`) Nepu!!!

    1. Nepu is tired of all the wardrobe criticisms and decided to wear a tank……..pointing at YOU.
      (ducks into cover).

  10. is this related to previous chapter about the talked of Root and Tomoe about Divine vessel where if the goddess(bug) put an effort to make it?

  11. I kinda feel a bad vibe when Makoto spoke about protecting Asora… That’s a flag, you know?

    Dem ”A” comment tho… i loled

    Thanks for the chapter!

    PD: (I couldn’t connect to facebook for giving a reply last time for some reason, idk why)

  12. Serwale surly put forth an Asora like solution

    “The people from the sea wants to go watch the flowering trees on top of a mountain. lets just alter the terrain so that there is a sea that goes up into the mountain. it’s just a few miles of solid bedrock and a few minor mountains in the way, we will be done in a jiffy”

      1. To be fair, no one in Asora noticed it either.

        do note that they didn’t seem to be discussing a canal, but an actual ocean inlet or a fjord. at the minimum, large enough to allow for that floating turtle mountain to participate. as i said, a very Asora like solution. After all, no reason to exclude deep sea creatures from the mountain festival…

    1. I have to agree with you but I’ll wait to see if it’s necessary or not. Since the terrain in Asora changes everytime Makoto does a pact, it might not be necessary for anyone to expand the search for the sea folk to visit the shrine.

      1. Actually, if you go back and read the earlier chapters, Asora expands as he increases his power. Every time he made a pact with a new follower the landscape changed. For instance, after making a pact with Mio a river suddenly appeared running through the orc village. Among other changes

  13. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    The Bug never has festivals!
    From some things I heard about the kind of “FESTIVALS” (read as O*G**S) in Aphrodite’s temples I don’t think the Bug is her. Or did I mistaken Aphrodite with another goddess.

    1. She always struck me as more of an Ishtar than Aphrodite to be honest.

      what with how she is really really quite a b**ch, to a level not even Aphrodite could reach.

      really, that poem about Ishtar from one of her lovers is also quite applicable to the Buggess

    2. Why not Hera?

      Goddess of women, known to be jealous and vengeful, often seen together with sacred animals including a cow and a bird and hates ugly people to the level that she kicked her own son down to earth because of his looks.

      Maybe the other Gods have to show a minimum of respect for the Bug is because it’s actually big shot Zeus’ troublesome wife. It would also explain why Athena, someone from a different mythology, is involved in the first place.

        1. I’m with Rouise, Hera is not the type to forgive harems or mistresses, especially for someone who’s supposed to represent her. The shit she’s done to some of Zeus’s dalliances and children. *shudders*

          1. I’ve mentioned it before, but I wonder how offended the Hera of this universe would be if she heard we were comparing her to Bug, who seems fine with all that garbage.

      1. Hera might have been jealous when it comes to Zeus but is there any reason to believe that the same applies to the relationships of other people? Mio will probably maim or murder anyone who gets too close to Makoto and be devastated if he went with someone else but would she care about how other people act towards each other?

        I’m probably wrong about the Bug being her but a lot of details fit. She prefers women, she has a sacred cow and bird (spirits), she is jealous and vengeful, and throwing Makoto into the wasteland because he’s ugly is very similar to what Hera did to Hephaestus.

  14. Thanks for the chapter and I don’t know if it was intentional but I know the saying as “birds of a feather flock together”

  15. did mio done some MGS thing on shiki LOLZ. Also, i wonder why the author took the likings on the fishfaces, it bothers me.

    Sari’s having U-turn in life it seems.

    Thanks for the latest chapt!

  16. lets sing together
    “Crab people, Crab people”
    “Crab people, Crab people. Taste like crab, talk like people.”

  17. ty for the chap
    nice relaxing chapter
    next is the pact of dooooom!!!
    except author san is going a round trip to the heroes ^^”

  18. hmmm…what could it be?? i feel that when touda talking about the egg, i feel a connection with what chiya saw on makoto

  19. So about the divine vessels mentioned this chapter…

    Firstly, I think it’s pretty significant to learn that it actually takes a magic power tax from anyone that prays there. Presumably, the stockpiles magical power will actually be used to grant wishes and perform miracles.

    That’s something that could certainly be worth investing time in for Makoto, since he’s always looking for ways to spend his stupid magical power. In fact, Makoto should consider actively dumping his power into the vessels because hey, why not?

    And the final point I want to get to is…well…Why has no one considered the possibility that it’s Tsukuyomi sleeping in at least one of those vessels?

      1. Totally posible there, woth Makoto crazy amount of mana thats been poured it surely will give a suntantial flow of mana that might help tsuki-bro. or problaly since there are shrines in there they are making Asora some sort of divine embassy so the goddes when finds out can’t just arbitrary attack it without their consent???!!! maybe???

      2. if soo, he know Makoto enough to know that the best way of achieving that is to politely ask though.

        He has read his mind, and know that Makoto really likes Moon-bro and feels indebted to him. If something as simple as a massive dump of mana would help speed things up, Makoto would totally dump several draupnirs worth of mana into paying Moon-bro back whenever he had some spare time if asked.

    1. that’s was my initial though, that she came to collect magic power to heal tsukuyomi, or give him a new body

      but after reading the coms, maybe an egg is more accurate?

  20. Thanks for the chapter as always!
    Then when the eggs hatches will it bring the God for asora or divine being?

  21. Thanks for the chapter, a Cherry Blossom festival sounds quite nice indeed. Is good seeing Makoto actually enjoying himself there, and Shiki is the very definition of Workaholic, Mio and her jelously is so cute. Wonder wjat name Makoto will give the new follower, and who does he plan to invite to the others festivals that the people of Asora are planning, would it be the students, Rememberant family, the heroes????

  22. Thanks for the chapter
    Can that divine vessel be a dummy Makoto, like when he need to separate that dark entities into something else, can he cast it on that vessel…?

  23. I feel that if Makato gave Mio a lap pillow, then Tomoe would sense it run up to Makato and lay on his other lap

  24. thanks for the chapter

    “I found Sari who is now sprawled at the top of a tree branch for some reason.”
    was she a pure blooded demon, or is she half cat?
    Zef need to explain himself right away!

    1. its a must in flower viewing tradition, there’s a need of someone or some people to drunk and sprawled on a tree branch, now we just need like shiki with his butt stabbed with a bottle of sake :v

  25. Thank you for the chapter, Big Boss !

    Piklicave and I tought that the next chapter is still a long way, but Big Boss is generous to give us a shinkansen ride.

    Thank you again.

  26. Don’t now if i find it such a good thing to just offer land to the gods. They seem to pushy to get there stake into the new world instead of letting assora devolo its own deity maybe the want stop makatao from becoming a religion we still dont know what happens with people that die in asora and there souls.

  27. Thank you for the chapter~

    Shiki is a straight up addict. I know he’s been like that for hundreds of years, but he needs to learn to switch off.~

  28. Shiki… I know you love researching but going against waka direct order is a big no-no. You have it coming dude.

    So the ‘praying’ system is actually kind of universal even amongst multiverse. But when Touda talked about this world did she meant Asora or Bugdess world?

    P.S. Did the Bugdess world really don’t have an official name?

  29. Thanks for the Chapter~

    That deification system though~ Like an egg hatching~
    Anyone here knows of the Artificial god: Arc Company, The god of Rewards, Revolution and Pleasure?

  30. I am dissatisfied, the fact of these temples given to the Makoto, these three gods are only going to gain more followers in the next generations, so it is more of a benefit to them than to the Makoto, and I really would like Makoto to become the god of Asora But he does not want any of this 🙁

  31. Thanks for the chapter. I read once to go cherry view and have a picnic in Tokyo is difficult. I also heard there are some places that he reserve a spot by paying for it. When I heard the word alcohol at this event it reminded me of the time my family and I went to a park on the 4th of July. They were to have laser show, music, and fireworks. Whiled driving to the entrance several times we saw people running into the woods to go to the bathroom. Finally, when we parked we went to find a spot to lay our blanket but was so crowded with the smell of alcohol and cigarettes. Then out no where it started to sprinkle but it did not last long. My mother had enough and decided for all of us to go home. We went back next year but a 2 days earlier before the 4th. This time it was not crowded and hardly any alcohol and cigarettes smell. That was good time.

  32. What we have here? A slow paced, relaxing chapter after the fight.
    This is the calm before the storm, right?
    The typhoon’s eye?
    It’s a trap!

    *ohohoo.. now I have big expectation for next chapter!*

  33. Thanks for the chapter

  35. heeh.. nice timing. its just blooming sakura here in my area. sadly its going to be rainy days so those sakura flowers may not bloom so well.

  36. I… I… didn’t spoil anything !
    I promise !

    ….. though, I do feel weird nowadays.
    Kinda like parasite infection.

    Forget all that. New chapter coming.

  37. thanks for the chapter. isn’t the saying gors5as ” birds of the same feather, flock together” I think that’s what he meant. though not sure.

  38. “Serwhale-san requested me permission to expand the sea and reduce the land.”

    They sure make it sound as if that’s easy.

  39. I wonder what’s Touda role on Makoto’s alternate dimension. Especially when he became the demon lord or the one that fully evil that deemed the entire world his enemy..

      1. In that case her role is probably to prevent some future breaking point that still involves Tomoe, Mio, and Shiki

        1. Well if we are talking about alt timelines. Probably a mystery in general. Because in some of them he didn’t gain asora. In this timeline, she is just a bonus subordinate. To help with the later fights. Especially against the bug goddess.

  40. “The magic power that is being offered will gather in a vessel, right? Is it fine to assume that the balls that you showed us are the *divine vessels* where it resides?” (Makoto)
    Snap Reaction = DRAGON BALLS!

    Later learning there is only 1 vessel per temple/shrine so 3 reaction = ….Poor dragon lost some balls.

        1. the light novel rn has 17 volumes. chpt 226 is around vol 17. the web novel is like 500+ so there will be at least like 30 volumes if it keep this pace

  41. Yes. If you wish strongly, you will end up offering a large amount of magic power. Thinking about the belief of the people of Asora towards this Shinto shrine, I don’t think it will be possible.” (Touda)

    Something tells me that one of the MC’s closest frst will be dying. And they have to do this

    “In a faraway future when magic power is known in Earth, there’s the chance that they will learn of this reality.” (Touda)

    Possible but low.
    In some far away future MC will probably be able to go back to earth but his sisters are already dead because remember when the time ratio is different? It was thousands years ago in Goddess world but the Wisemen that are summoned are around 20 centuries and are knowledgeable about video games

    So yeah, MC goes back to world with people have different abilities, he’s probably be a god now by the time that happens

    1. isn’t backwards? That even if mc spends 1000 years in this world it will only be for a very short while on earth, at least that’s how I understood it cuz, 1000 years ago Root’s husband came from the 20th century and 1000 years later Makato came from the same century but 1000 years later, so even if Makato spends 1000 years on this planet it will only be for a short while back on earth so will be able to see his family. I think you misunderstood or maybe I’m misunderstanding what you wrote.

      1. I actually assumed that by the time Makoto is able to go to earth he’s now a god (probably a way to be able to traverse from world to world) and probably his love ones are dead because it took him too long even if the time ratio between earth and this world is big

        1. Well I can guess that you are way farther then me in the story but considering that it has been barely 2 years and mc is already at god level, at least with him defeating the Samal and Touda(Tamaki) I doubt it will take more then 100 years or even 20 years for him to reach that level

          1. That’s true, but hey anything can happen, astronauts measure space with lightyears, if MC were to travel through space to go back to earth flow of time will be different when he traverse.

            And I’m just around 300+ chapters, 305 is definitely an awesome chapter, look forward to it.

          2. I think the person is meaning they will be a true god. A true god has immortality. The true gods and goddess aren’t mortal.

    2. No, it’s more that the summons can take you from any time period. Roots husband was from a time period close to the mcs time period. Because they had rpg games from where he was taken from. So late 80s to 90s time period i guess. And the whole guild system was from roots husband. And all of that was done at 1k years before. The husband of root explained all of the stuff from his world. Including about video games and more specifically rpg games. It was explained by root that going back to his time period is extremely low. Because you would have to be able to locate the exact time period. Thru the use of reverse summoning magic. It would be like trying to aim a missile at a target that is constantly moving around from place to place. A missile without homing ability of course.

  42. But, isn’t that Makoto’s shrine? I would think Tomoe would have the people pray there, to him. Perhaps that would give him that “divinity” that the Gate was talking about? Also, he should make this an holiday. Perhaps even 3 days of festivities?

  43. The info drop about the nature of praying is interesting. I have a feeling it’s going to become quite important later when he faces the Goddess.

    Aside from that, I donder how the world will be affected by Touda. The world changed quite a bit when both Mio and Shiki were bonded, so maybe she might bring more biomes?

  44. I think that shrines was set to belong to to Makoto, the tool that will be born from the vessel will be belong to Makoto after all. And i feel like that that was also the origin or Touda. That she was born from the vessel. That’s why she’s referring herself as a tool.

    Also, Mio’s segway to steal Makoto’s lap was a good move. Maybe i can borrow that.
