Chapter 264: The transient braves

Previous Chapter l Next ChapterSponsored Chapter


The Adventurers of Origin.

That was something talked about all around the world. It refers to the people that are called the ancestors of the currently existing adventurers.

They travelled through the whole world and helped out the people, and became the role model for the brave that came after. Of hyumans and demi-humans alike.

However, their names currently remain only in a small part of the Lorel Union.

Why is that? That kind of question popped.

Just like how Rokuya-san said about it not being anything hide about, he spoke about it fluently.

But he also said that this is not something we need to talk about in a room filled with people, so he began the talk after guiding us to a space that seemed to be a secret room in this floor.

When we entered the room, I felt something strange, as if we passed through a thin film. It was something slight that doesn’t warrant much attention though.

It is probably something to make it so that even if we were to come here on our own, we won’t be able to find it or won’t be able to enter it.

Well, let’s leave aside the topic of the hidden room for now.

I am still half in doubt, but it seems like this Rokuya is actually the one from the legendary Adventurers of Origin.

In other words, immortal.

It is not that they are always awake and active, they live in a style where they wake up every now and then and move, and have been living like that for a long time.

Honestly speaking, I wouldn’t be able to imagine a life like that.

At this moment, I felt like Rokuya-san and the other people called the Adventurers of Origin are existences I wouldn’t be able to comprehend.

Living for eternity.

How does that feel?

If I were forced to choose between death or immortality, the current me would probably…choose death.

If it were longevity, it would be a different story, but immortality…

Even if I become immortal, my surroundings will definitely continue dying.

I kind of don’t like that.

“Well, and so, we ended up cooperating, and that guy Munemori not only got the trust of Root, he even married her, and founded one of the nations that would be counted as one of the five major powers, Elysion.” (Rokuya)

“There’s still quite a lot of anecdotes remaining about the foundation of Elysion, and the dragon princess that appears in those, I could somewhat understand that it referred to Root from the talks the person himself told me, but…there was no mention about Apfel(Apple), you know?” (Makoto)

By the way, this is my first time hearing that his husband was a person named Sou Mamoru.

If I remember correctly, he was a swordsman.

And after building up his country, he began liking love affairs.

…I feel like this part of his subtly overlaps with Tomoki.

But well, there was no information regarding charm, and Root said his husband didn’t have those kind of powers.

“Yeah, we were erased from history after all.”

In those days, it seems Rokuya-san’s group called themselves Apfel, which is written as Apple. <Apfel=アプフェル>

It is a name I have no recollections whatsoever.

It seems like Lorel remembered them as Apple instead of Apfel, and called them Apple and people of Apple.

“Era…sed?” (Makoto)

It sounded conspiracy-like. Ominous words.

Moreover, Rokuya-san is one of the affected parties, and yet, he doesn’t seem to be blaming anyone.

“You see, Munemori revealed it to Root. About us…more accurately speaking, about the power of our master.” (Rokuya)

“Your master’s…” (Makoto)

It seems like Rokuya-san’s group, the Adventurers of Origin, have a leader they call master.

But rather than a relationship of one being in higher standing than the other, it sounded more like another word denoting a friend.

What’s with this.

I myself…feel like I have a relationship like this.

“Not only Munemori, us as well, the heroes, and also you; when coming here, you received a power, right?” (Rokuya)

“Yes…eh?” (Makoto)

“For example; Munemori received ‘the Sword of Ambition, Desire’ and ‘the Sword of Oath, Damocles’. A cheat sword that responds to his will and becomes stronger without the need of a blacksmith, and…the sword of resolution that you make an oath and as long as you protect it, all of your abilities are raised. The second one, in the case that he broke the oath, he receives a big wound, so it wasn’t all merits though.” (Rokuya)

“Ehm…” (Makoto)

“And in my case, it is a bit special, you see. I can’t talk in detail about the second one, but the first one is a bit different from norm, an ability that links my comrades.” (Rokuya)

“…”

In other words, Rokuya-san is –no, all the Adventurers of Origin are…Wise?

And as if natural, it seems he also sees through me as well.

But what is this second one he is talking about?

In my case, I was summoned by a God, and at that time, I received [Sakai] from Tsukuyomi-sama. That’s the only one I got.

Don’t tell me, is the language comprehension of the Goddess that she jammed inside of me also counted?

Is that the second one?

…Seriously?

“Us six came here at the same time, and noticed that we had acquired an ability. And the one who was able to exercise that ability was master. That’s why…yeah, link would be the correct understanding of it.” (Rokuya)

“Link ability.” (Makoto)

Six.

If that’s the case, at least they wouldn’t be lonely. Even if they had come to a terrible world.

But this link ability, I don’t really understand it well.

“Ah, that’s the ‘Blood Pledge, Guild Verse’. Don’t know what sort of fate this is, but we were companions in an MMO -or so to speak, an online game- we played in those days. And our abilities were connected with it. What a joke.” (Rokuya)

“…Ah, a net game.” (Makoto)

So that’s what it is.

Rokuya-san and his companions, and then there’s the master <Guild Master>.

Guild comrades in an online game.

I see.

“The details of it are…to put it in an easy to understand way for you, it would be the reproduction of the online game system. Well, strictly speaking, it is different though. In other words, from a novice, I can hunt mamonos and change my job to thief, and after that, assassin, and further after, I can decide on a specialized job…it is that kind of setup. There’s also a shared warehouse that other people can’t see, side quests, and other fine details in the ability.” (Rokuya)

It is truly a guild.

And this entered the ears of Root, and that’s how the current guild was established.

They are truly the adventurers of origin.

No lies in their name.

But from what I have heard until now, I don’t understand the meaning behind them being erased from history.

It doesn’t explain the point about the immortality either.

“In other words, it is that right? Root took the idea of the Adventurer Guild from the ability of you guys? If the information of Root’s husband was about that ability, that’s plausible but…” (Tomoe)

It seemed like Tomoe was putting it all together, but at the same time, her eyes were saying there’s more to it.

Rokuya-san silently nods.

He continues.

“Yeah. Root took an interest in the structure called a guild, and tried to replicate it. It is certainly true that she heard about Guild Verse from Munemori and got the idea. But the part that would serve as the core, in the end, she was unable to create it.” (Rokuya)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

That’s strange. In the end, he did create the guild and is the guild master.

And in present, Root is still the guild master.

“Even if she is the heavenly dragon Root that governs over a percent of the world,  as expected, there’s no way she would be able to grasp the essentials of the Earth’s pc online games. She desperately gathered information from me, master, and the other members.” (Rokuya)

“That…must have been annoying.” (Makoto)

To the point you would want to call the police.

“Nah. Even if she was a dragon on the inside, her appearance was that of a peerless beauty. The three men counting me actually enjoyed it, you know. Root was aggressive, she wasn’t as stubborn towards one person like Munemori, she let us enjoy without any hesitation.” (Rokuya)

“I…I see.” (Makoto)

Eh?

Could it be, I’m quite the herbivorous?

Or is it that, Root had quite the appeal in the past?

Judging from the atmosphere in the story, not only Rokuya-san, the other two members also enjoyed it.

I am currently receiving a culture shock here.

Rokuya-san is a Wise -though I don’t know from what era he is- he must be a japanese person.

If he is a person of the Showa era, were the men of that era this indiscriminate?

In that era, did they dig in when a woman made advances on you?

Seriously?

“…By the way, I was born at the end of the Showa era. I don’t think our perceptions are that different, Raidou-kun.” (Rokuya)

“A…Ahahaha…” (Makoto)

Did he master mind reading?

I am blocking the magic type, and there’s no signs of him probing.

My expression as well, I have lately been able to hide the things that show on my face.

“It looks like you are not self-aware of it, so this might be a good chance to tell you. You are a late bloomer. There’s a limit to being herbivorous. It has been several years since you came to this world, right? In age…you are already over twenty huh. ‘Sleeping with somebody will only be with the person I have decided to marry for the rest of my life’, that kind of ideal is so far from reality it is close to being a delusion, you know? If you are being desired, it is fine to desire as well. That’s all there is to it, and there’s no need to think too deeply about it.” (Rokuya)

He looks at Tomoe, looks at Mio, and even looks at Shii, and then, sighs and points a finger straight at me as he said that to me.

Shii is also okay with you, Rokuya-san?

It is true that I am an adult, but that’s clearly already crimina—no, let’s leave it at that.

“No well, you see, it is been a while already, so there’s things that are just hard to advance towards…” (Makoto)

“…Are you seriously saying that? Going through the trouble of finding a partner for one night would be just… there’s two women at both your sides that are practically shouting that they are ready anytime you want, right? If you are at a lost, if it’s those two, even if it is the two at the same time, they would probably not complain, you know?” (Rokuya)

“Rokuya-san! You are going too far.” (Makoto)

“…”

What is this person saying.

I hurriedly object as I look at the two.

Tomoe and Mio are obviously angered…or not?

Oh.

On the contrary, Mio was stealthily giving a thumbs up to Rokuya-san. Her face is slightly red.

Tomoe didn’t say anything, but she was nodding and going ‘Umu Umu’.

No well, it isn’t as if I didn’t know, but…in the past, the figures of Hasegawa and Higashi were definitely bigger than Tomoe and Mio.

Then, if asked now, it would be about the same, or actually…

But if we were to cross the line, I feel like a variety of restrains will be broken.

Thinking about my determination of returning to Japan wavering and disappearing…honestly speaking, I am scared.

And in reality, whether it is Rokuya-san, that Munemori person, and the Adventurers of Origin; they have all stayed in this world without returning.

“…Fuh… Sorry. It was probably not something for me to talk about. Let’s return to the main topic.” (Rokuya)

“…Sorry.” (Makoto)

“It is fine. And so, Root thoroughly researched about us and Guild Verse, but it didn’t bear fruit. However, Root thought that an adventurer guild was a necessary existence in the future of the world. Just as her attitude showed, she wasn’t the type who would obey the Goddess after all.” (Rokuya)

“Yeah, Root is like that. I think his stance is different from that of the Goddess.” (Makoto)

I can tell by the fact that he is thinking of things like thinning out the hyumans.

So Root has been like that in the past too, and Rokuya-san had noticed that way of thinking Root had.

“That’s why…” (Rokuya)

“…”

Rokuya-san slightly narrows his eyes.

“Root has already diverged from the Guild Verse system, and she is trying to make it a permanent existence in this world.” (Rokuya)

“In other words, it means that Root is trying to make it possible for the Adventurer Guild to have your ability as well?” (Makoto)

“Yeah. But for the sake of that, he needs the cooperation of the Goddess, and more than that, there’s the need for our cooperation as well.” (Rokuya)

“Right. Leaving aside the Goddess, the cooperation of you guys would definitely be a necessary.” (Makoto)

“However, the price that was asked for was way too big. You probably already have an idea but…for the sake of that, all the people related to the Guild Verse ability are required to live forever. If the Wise die, the ability goes with them after all.” (Rokuya)

“?!”

“That’s why, a lot happened, Raidou-kun. By the Goddess, Guild Verse became the core of the Adventurer Guild, and we became immortal. But you see, a problem was born in this.” (Rokuya)

“Problem?” (Makoto)

‘Yeah’, Rokuya answers with a bitter smile.

“At that rate, our achievements would be way too big. Moreover, the Adventurers of Origin are immortal. I was a charismatic person in those days, you see. If I wanted to, I would have been able to become the king of a major power.” (Rokuya)

“Obviously. Receiving immortality, bringing the Adventurer Guild to this world; those are achievements that would surpass a king of a major power.” (Makoto)

“That’s why it was inconvenient for Root. Her unyielding wish was for Munemori to be the greatest brave of that time. Fufu, in the end, she beared the child of Munemori. Even if she was a Superior Dragon, it was her first time having a child. She went wild probably because of the maternal instincts that were suddenly born in her.” (Rokuya)

“Maternal instincts have nothing to do with that. That’s way too much of a selfish wish.” (Makoto)

“Hahaha, right. It is just as you say, Raidou. But this is not something that’s happening now, it is all history that was settled thousands of years already. Also, it is not the history of winners, you know? It is the history of people that are fading away. It is not something for you to be so riled up about. In the first place, I who am one of the related parties don’t feel anger towards Root.” (Rokuya)

“Why?! If what you have done is true, then that bad treatment of Root would be similar to what the Goddess did to m—!!” (Makoto)

“No matter the sequence of events and the conclusion of it, the Adventurers of Origin became a minor fairy tale of Lorel, but Root has been able to properly maintain the Adventurer Guild in this thousands of years.” (Rokuya)

“…”

“The hyumans growing haughty was in part the Goddess’ fault, and even Root wouldn’t be able to stop that, but a diverse amount of demi-humans and a narrow amount of demons have been able to survive until today. It is certain that she has been able to carry out her role in the Adventurer Guild which she fervently spoke of in the past.” (Rokuya)

“…”

Even so, there are things that can’t be forgiven as well.

Being forced immortality, and have your existence erased, that’s just…

“That’s why, the Adventurers of Origin, as well as I, have accepted most of our circumstances already.” (Rokuya)

“‘Most’?” (Makoto)

“As troublesome as it is, the one man that has to accept it the most, is still fighting against it. And so, at that time in the past, there was one kind dragon that was enraged by this, just like how you are, Raidou-kun -no, that rage was even higher than yours.” (Rokuya)

Dragon.

Could that be…

“A dragon, you say? I don’t think there was anyone who would be able to fight against Root in the past. At the very least, I don’t know of one.” (Tomoe)

Tomoe tilts her head.

I see.

Leaving aside if both of them have met before, Tomoe was alive at that time as well.

She learned about the Guild when she heard of it from Root, so she was probably asleep at that time anyways.

“No surprise. In those days, the other Superior Dragons aside from Root and Futsu didn’t boast much strength after all.” (Rokuya)

“As I have said, I don’t know of a dragon named Futsu-ja. It seems like it is known widely in this country, but who in the world is that-ja?” (Tomoe)

After a brief silence, Tomoe seeks an answer from Rokuya-san.

It is certainly true that the name Doma is spread in Lorel Union as well, but the name of Futsu surpassed that.

And Doma is being seen as a dungeon’s Superior Dragon, but it felt as if Futsu was being directed something like reverence.

It felt like the kind of reverence they direct to Spirits and the Goddess.

“The Ancestral Dragon of Heavens, Heavenly Dragon Root; directly opposite, the Ancestral Dragon of the Land, Land Dragon Futsu. The matchless Superior Dragons that possess the highest of powers, however, Futsu was against the creation of the Adventurer Guild, and…as a result, its power was snatched away by Root and was terminated.” (Rokuya)

“?!!”

“This is a matter of Superior Dragons. It is a top secret matter that would be bad if Root knew, so Raidou, please keep it a secret as well, okay? After that, its existence was thoroughly erased by the hands of Root, even more thoroughly than in our case. That was way too pitiful you see. We saved it.” (Rokuya)

“As I thought, I don’t know of it. If we are talking about a land dragon, it would be Grount, right?” (Tomoe)

“More accurately speaking, that girl is a Sand Dragon. Can’t be helped, we are talking about Root here. She probably persistently chipped off the memories of Futsu from the other Superior Dragons every time they were dormant or were reincarnating. It was probably easier than erasing the Adventurers of Origin from the history of people.” (Rokuya)

“That damn Root…” (Tomoe)

“If Futsu had acted as how it normally acts, the situation wouldn’t have gotten so screwed. In the end, whether it is people or dragons, what decides things is most likely emotions over logic. Fufu.” (Rokuya)

Rokuya-san was probably reminiscing the events of one thousand years ago, he laughs.

Even though this was their defeat.

Receiving the curse of immortality and having their existence erased from history; that’s right, it is supposed to be a defeat.

And yet, is this really something that one can look back at it a thousand years after and laugh?

I…probably will end up fighting them at the floors below the tenth.

Since they are immortal, there’s only one way to beat Rokuya-san and the others, I have no choice but to break their will.

No, Tomoe and Mio are probably already investigating this immortality of Rokuya-san.

If possible, his memories of it as well.

That’s probably the reason why the two aren’t speaking much and simply look like they are listening to the story.

There’s the possibility that there will be some sort of way to break through this situation from what they might figure out.

But…the will of people that are able to accept defeat in this manner, if I have no choice but to break it, just how am I going to?

Is it breakable?

I currently…don’t know.

I felt something heavy slowly accumulating in my stomach.

        Like a bit where Tomoki’s all obsessed with fighting Makoto only when he’s immortal, only to have it not matter through sheer force of Makoto’s will.

        My original plan was for Makoto to just shoot down the moon, but finding a way to break immortality from this sounds good too.

    1. Well if he can’t kill them….There is a saying that there are far more worst fates than death!
      Basically just dismember them and lock them up.
      Freeze them in ice that never melts like Aqua and Eris cocyutus technique.
      Or bury them deep under ground and place a seal.
      Or just keep killing them since theh may be immortal but that doesn’t mean they don’t feel pain right? Not unless your deadpool.

        His parents are both Hyuman, it seems. He’s ugly(normal), but his sisters are gorgeous. His mother had a fling with a demon, but that doesn’t match up with his birth date so it should be irrelevant. When Bug checked his blood, she confirmed he was his parent’s child. But he also seems distinctly inhyuman and inhuman in nature.

        The Goddess plainly stated that Makoto was Human, not Hyuman. Which leads me to believe that it’s not just a matter of genetics, but upbringing and how Earth must affect a person’s souls/spirit or possibly their mana that makes them distinctively different from Hyumans as Human beings.

    Firstly, they’ve finally gotten to talking about immortality. (Makoto has trouble comprehending these existences? Ha! That’s rich!)
    And Makoto….prefers to die? Uh oh.

    That’s the sensible answer, but if he said that aloud, his poor followers would be heartbroken. I hope he hasn’t forgotten that they are immortal and would miss him. Root’s even there as a consistent reminder of the loneliness of immortality.

    ….MORE IMPORTANTLY. Rokuya says “Fuck this passiveness, sleep with your wives already!”
    Awesome This brings up a lot of interesting details about Makoto that hadn’t been stated before as well.

    …Yeah, I guess 3 years is about right. It’s also about the same amount of time he’s known his club members on earth, so that matches up.

    Something Makoto said this chapter really piqued my interest. He more or less said something to the effect of:
    “I’m afraid of entering a relationship(loving?) with Tomoe and Mio because I don’t want to get attached to this world. I don’t want to stop wanting to go home.”

    A persisting trait of Makoto’s throughout this story has been his homesickness. But this reveals that, like with his morals on the value of life, it’s an attachment that he’s almost been forcing himself to have for fear of what would happen if he didn’t have it. It’s almost like he’s afraid of forgetting what home is like, maybe because it’s another symbol he uses as an “eggshell” to keep his true self in check?

    Any thoughts, folks?

    1. Well he still has a family that worries about him on earth.
      But if he was able to return and was able to use his powers it would still be able to connect him to asora.
      Also rwmember what his spirit looks like? Didn’t that have a crack? So the term ‘Eggshell’ would actually fit to describe it.
      Its like his true self only being restraint by his own toughts and denial.

    2. I like that thought about the eggshell used to describe how he’s restraining himself, that reminds me of when that priestess girl (whose name escapes my mind) saw that there was a crack in his shell and whatever dark, horrifying thing that lies in there is just waiting to break out. Who knows what Makoto will actually seek to do once he decides he doesn’t need to go home anymore, in what way would an unrestrained Makoto act when he has the power to decimate the entire world and potentially repel the Goddess from interfering with him? That thought kind of has me excited now. 🙂

        In the current state, he still has no way of returning home.
        If he were to sleep with them, create a strong relationship, and enjoy the life in that world, his resolve to find a way home will waver and maybe even disappear which is the thing he doesn’t want.

        On the contrary, if he were to find a way home and THEN consumate the relationship, there’s no resolve to return home since he already has a way to.

    1. I’ve read in other novels that this type of thing is truly the work of an administrative God that requires intense management over a system which rules over the lives of all creatures living in that world. If you think of the scale and the attribute and elements of what they’re trying to apply over the entirety of that world’s sentient lifeforms, then they’re probably jus barely cutting it using the original adventurers as a medium to maintain such a system that is incomplete. Root really is a God-like existence there if that’s the case.

      (BTW, my reference for this comes from the Web Novel Kumo Desu Ga, Nani Ka? I find it very interesting in how the author breaks down the actual functions of the world’s system in such a way that sounds logical and acceptable enough to understand even with the fantasy factors in there).

  9. I hope I’m not the only one that’s extremely fascinated by Root’s “origin” story.

    I’d almost be willing to read through a whole spinoff of Root’s first encounter with Munemori. According to Tomoe, she was initially very uptight and all about the rules as one would expect of a “harmony dragon”.

    But then something happened and she met her first otherworlder, who opened up a world for her not unlike Tomoe meeting Makoto. She more or less fell in love with both the man and his culture, and even had a child with him(which, incidentally, creates the most hilarious image of a beautiful maiden version of Root freaking out at everything when she starts feeling maternal instincts for the first time).

    It ends in an almost descent into madness when Root gets too deep into her hobby and perhaps the mortality of a loved one.

    Skip forward several centuries and we have an eldritch archer encountering Root and getting the impression of “depraved dandy pervert”.

    …So wait. Did Root’s first husband die or not!? If immortality was always a possibility, what gives!?

    1. Root did mention something about how it wasn’t a good idea to try and prolong the life of your loved one. My guess is that the relationship fell apart and maybe her husband came to absolutely detest and hate root.

      Aside from that though, I totally want to see the moment when Tomoe ever develops maternal instincts. I think that would be absolutely hilarious and sweet at the same time when Makoto has to calm her down every minute. Oh… I wonder what Mio would end up doing since she’s a spider. She won’t try to eat Makoto whole would she? (or possibly in a different manner of speaking). Mio would definitely go GaGa over her kids though, I can imagine that much. 🙂

        As for Mio, my impression is that she would definitely adore her child and possibly even spoil them a little too much. The problem is…well, she’s a spider. Spiders don’t really have good relationships with parents, children, or mates.

        I don’t think they’re actually her children, but they’re definitely described as her “kin”. My interpretation was that they were an underling species of hers, like a golden slime among metal slimes or something.

        As a matter of fact, both Mio and their origins are pretty mysterious. Did they originate in this world? Is Mio actually a wild beast that wanders across worlds for food? Is she in fact a lesser god or divine beast in that case? It’s all been fairly untouched as far as the story goes.

      3. The thing about immortality is that it comes with a bunch of natural prices.

        First and foremost, everyone you know and love will eventually die before you do. You could bond with other immortals, but that much means you can never safely form a connection outside that private circle ever again.

        After that comes the issue of power. Power is very much a requirement to living leisurely as an immortal because you’ll eventually run into a disaster that would otherwise trap you in a fate worse than death otherwise(being buried in a cave-in or eaten by a monster, for instance).

        After that comes boredom, which inevitably turns you into someone like Root or Tomoe, who craves any form of fresh entertainment possible.

        All in all…a bad time mostly not worth living forever.

    2. let me try and help you.

      In the begging Root found all 6 of then and became their friends (even sleeping with all 3 guys), but ended up falling in love and having a child with one of then.

      Root and then at the time were probably famous around the world because of the many great deeds they made (like saving towns slaying monster and those kind’s of things).

      Root grow really fond of their “party” ability and the whole concept of guilds and adventures and decided to recreate then in their world, but to do so she/he needed to use the six as a form of “core” for the system and made then “permanent” existences in this world, by asking cooperation of the Bug.

      This is pretty much told in this chapter, but there are a few details that we can infer by this information:
      -The six of then were against becoming immortals, and were defeated and forced to do so by Root;
      -Because of their immortality and great power’s they would bring great imbalance to the world, so Root made then be forgotten everywhere, only leaving vague images of them (except her husband whom she thought was the only one that should be remembered as the founder of their country);
      -At that Time another Superior Dragon who was their friend standed up to then and tried to oppose Root but was defeated and had to be saved by the 6, and was also eventually removed from the memories of everyone.

    I kind of knew about it already, but Makoto is pretty darn stubborn huh.

Well I’m fine with Makoto straightening out the Goddess’s personality and actions, he does have that right since that bi**ch of a Goddess went and did what she did. But I hope he doesn’t go so far as to force Rokuya and the other original adventurers to participate in his own vendetta using past grudges as a way to pull them in. Then again it seems like he’s now set on crushing their wills, all in all I’ve got something exciting to look forward to though, I feel like there’s never enough action where Makoto gets to show his skills.

      Members of Picnic seem to be “ordinary” Hyumans, with perhaps some Human mixed in thanks to their Wise ancestry.

    very interesting chapter

    look like the author will make makoto more serious about love affair after so much tease, fine by me.

    So, the adventurer guild is supported by root, the goddess and apple, if one disappear the adventurer guild will fall apart, that mean if makoto kick out the goddess, he will destroy at the same time the adventurer guild, how will he react to that information?

    So Tomoe wasn’t the “second seat” in dragon hierarchy, and Root “erased” the existence of Futsu from the other dragon memories to keep his rule more stable.
    Tomoe was called “invincible” because her ability permitted her to “not loose”, but did it work on stronger being that are Root and Futsu?
    since actual Root has the power of Futsu, does that mean he is far stronger that in the past, explaining why at that time he couldn’t beat tomoe and her inheriting the name of “invincible”? what if tomoe was the strongest in the past explaining why she is called “invincible”, but Root, after stealing Futsu’s power, rewrite dragons’ memories to become the strongest, like when he erased apple’s histories only take make his husband look like better?
    Since tomoe became far stronger that she was before contracting with makoto, how is the actual power hierarchy among the dragons? maybe tomoe became strong enough to take the first seat?

    I think Root said lancer was a failed experiment of fusing a cursed sword with a dragon corpse, what if he fused his husband’s sword (desire or Damocles) that still contained his power with futsu’s corps in an attempt to make him immortal or resurrect him, it failed and gave lancer?

    1. Plausible but
      “More accurately speaking, that girl is a Sand Dragon. Can’t be helped, we are talking about Root here. She probably persistently chipped off the memories of Futsu from the other Superior Dragons every time they were dormant or were reincarnating. It was probably easier than erasing the Adventurers of Origin from the history of people.” (Rokuya)”

      So maybe Root erased Tomoe’s memory of Futsu while she’s sleeping back then.

      1. But then the idea of being dormant is still vague to me, like how did Root erase Tomoe’s memory of Futsu while sleeping back then? Are superior dragons that defenseless while sleeping? It may be possible that he also killed her once while she’s sleeping and then once reincarnating altered her memories.

      2. it’s likely Root never tried to kill Shin or Grount(sp?) because Shin is able to store her own memories in crystals, while Grount can still retain her memories after rebirth.

  29. Grount comes back with memories after death and Root can’t right? Don’t see Grount ever getting a surprise attack from Root without her having countermeasures in place.

    Tomoe on the other hand would have been defenseless whether she was awake or killed.

    So futsu was saved by these apple fellas? Wow, these guys might be able to have a relationship with Makoto but there are two things I don’t like about them: the way Rokuya slept with his friend’s wife and how all of them accepted immortality.

    I’ve watched a-lot of anime and tv shows and these Japanese always seems to have their morals straight, normally the shameless or bad guy are who would sleep with their friends wife. I mean in real life some people might and in the tv show House of Cards, they do it like it’s normal but we are talking about Japanese and these guys seems to have been changed by the Bug’s world just like Hibiki. About immortality, Hibiki would accept it (my opinion) since her ideals would be achieved, but these gamers, what was going through their mind when they accepted it? I mean, they just arrived on Bug’s world what did they plan to achieve in their long years as immortals? Absolutely nothing other than fooling around and having fun. Jokes on them for accepting it with something to achieve in mind. Makoto on the other hand, has a world to manage, that keeps expanding and a god to punish and Immortal lovers to be with. I mean he has the choice of bringing everything down to his life span, by making Tomoe and Mio mortal, killing the Bug, stopping asora’s growth, fixing bugs world and then he dies of old age.

    Disgusting! Root had no idea humans could make babies with superior dragons, after all sleeping with Rokuya and the others would be dangerous without a condom and I doubt that was present. So they resulting child could be anyone’s. Also Root’s husband sleeping with other women is old news, Root already said it, that he tried to please him even when he went to sleep with other women.

    With all that has been revealed, pretty sure that these guys are far from the japanese Makoto thinks they are.

    1. Well by the time that they went around sleeping with Root thay might have spend a considerebly large amount of time in there and their moral perception might have chifted, but either way cheating and sleeping around is not a patern thats determinated by nationality, everyone can do it, that in some societies is more tolerated that other doesn’t mean that doesn’t happen. In the context it was more like they were forced to be inmortals and been erased from the world history.

      1. How were they forced to? I wonder.

        The part about being erased from history, it is obvious even if Root is more powerful they would have joined hyuman society if they wanted to. Being given immortality and being erased from history isn’t a bad thing since you can go around and do whatever you want without ever worrying about your fame. But these guys… obviously they are planning something.

        that part about morals, I was talking about in anime, novels, manga. The typical Japanese in those works. I wasn’t referring to real life nationalities.

      2. Even in mangas, animes, and novels there appear loose morals japanese people. I mean in all those novel where the MC comes for revange his former-colleges are pretty shitty and stuff. Well by the Assasin explonation it wasn’t like they jumped at the prospect of inmortality, but heck problaly the didn’t denied it either.

  31. So… let me get this straight.

    the guild system is based on an online game guild system from earth.

    that system exist because it was an ability given by the goddess for a group of people that she summoned to her world.

    also to make the system become a ‘core’ of the world, Root worked alongside the goddess meaning the system is actually tied to her.

    I think… I get it. The reason the system malfunctioned on Makoto because he is not blessed by that damn goddess. it’s like inserting a character from another game to your own game without proper code tweaking.

      1. Me too man… me too.

        Actually now that I think about it the whole guild level system did not make sense. How did they calculate level? Does character stats exist? If this is based on RO, Where is the job level? or that level is actually job level? How did they assign EXP? So the thought transmission is actually the whisper system? Since Sakai is a foreign skill from a foreign god did the system detected it properly?

        I have so many questions, but let’s stop before I written a whole page about it.

    1. -that system exist because it was an ability given by the goddess for a group of people that she summoned to her world.- Really they were summoned by the Goddes?? I though that the summoned of humans was a really big deal for the Gods thats whay the Goddes had to sircunvent to summon Makoto and the current Heroes. Either way i think thats a big plot hole there.

      -I think… I get it.

      1. When I said ‘blessing’ I mean the general protection, stats up, resistance up kind of thing that the goddess endowed on the hyuman and the heroes. what the goddess ‘give’ to makoto is more of a skill, a passive one, but still a skill that I think worked without a connection to her (completely independent) and can’t be dispelled.

      2. He never said he was summoned by the Goddess though. And the powers they received, it is not specified who gave them the power.
        There’s already another existence confirmed that can give powers aside from the Goddess in this world. And that doesn’t mean there’s an actual need for them to receive them, maybe they were awakened powers.

      3. Yes but he hinted that they recieved powers or blessing by the same entity, and so far Makoto has only recieved blessings by the Goddes and Tsuki-bro, now by what Tsuki explained at the beggining supposedly there is a high restriction of transporting humans from earth since they adapted to such a ridiculous world as earth they tend to disrupt the balance of the world that they are going. I don’t think that Tsuki-bro would have purposedly sended all of them there, when even transporting just one means such a risk. By the way I thanks for the replay.

  32. Damn, After reading some of the comments, I like Rokuya a lot to this point. He actually told off Raidou,herbivorous indeed. A late bloomer, I’m starting to think he’s gay.I don’t know what kind of babies they’d have but Tomoe and Mio or any of the other females are no slouches. A serious harem just waiting to be plowed. Is Rokuya an esper? Or was it the expression on Raidou’s face? Basically, I’d like to see the outcome of these matchups myself. I think when it comes to the females in this game/world, Makoto is a pantywaist. Sticking to the belief he’ll somehow make it back to Earth, even though the possibility is like a hundred million to one. Plus, his luck isn’t good to begin with. Homeboy will be a 40 year old virgin at this point. Just saying.

  33. “Could it be, I’m quite the herbivorous?”

    About time he figures it out… Any other man would’ve laid hands on his followers long ago. If not the followers, than some other woman in Asora or in Academy City… Heck even Rembrant’s daughters. It’s unnatural how he doesn’t seems to have any sex drive at all.

      1. You know, after the Gorgons were introduced I don’t recall any of them approaching Makoto? And there was that one he saved in academy town. Ester, I think it was? Didn’t she get intercepted by Lime? It’s a near certainty that Mio and Tomoe have their subordinates running interference to keep women from making moves on Makoto, and yet they themselves have been somewhat passive since they want Makoto to make a move on them.

      2. Mio and Tomoe already claimed dibs on him, so yeah I am pretty sure they had a little talk with the gorgons in private, but the author hinted that as soon as they got acepted, thay already had plans for him.

  34. Thanks for the chapter. Reading the story of Root and how he made the adventures guild by sacrificing the Earth Dragon reminds of the Clamp manga series “X/1999”. How the dragons of heaven are fighting to protect humanity but the dragons of earth are fighting to save the earth by destroying humanity. Except the Earth dragon did not want to use this adventure guild but it sounds like Root wanted to use it because it looked like a good way to kill time and it was fun. Makes me realize that Root might be more dangerous then thought he was.
