Chapter 03-05: The Light Knights

  • 03: The Light Knights

“Gubah?!” “Ogeh?!” “Uboo?!”

The armored knights fly through the air one after the other.

There’s no point in adding hits to opponents that are wearing something like armor, so if you simply use their own momentum to throw them, they will fall to the ground with the weight of the armor added, which will make them face hell.

Depending on the way they fall, they might even snap their neck and die instantly, but I have added some discretion in order to avoid that from happening.

“Father! I leave mother in your care!” (Haine)

“Understood! But you…”

I leave mother to father, and just like that, I rush forward.

Normally, this is a situation where we should be hiding and checking the situation, but since we have already left our hiding, we have no choice but to confront them.

Even with just a slight glance, I can tell that there’s around 50 knights. If I fight them all at once, I will just be crushed by their numbers.

In that case, what’s most important is to crush their leader.

The important-looking armored knight that seems to be one peck higher than the other knights and was giving orders a few moments ago.

Aiming for that guy, I ran straight at him.

“Captain! Be careful!”

“?!!! What?! What’s going on?!”

The other side seems to have begun noticing the abnormality, and the one who was acting all high-and-mighty suddenly got flustered.

“What are you idiots doing?! Crush this insolent one that’s coming here! In the name of the Light Goddess!!”

Abiding to the order, a number of knights tried to obstruct me, but I avoid them, and at times I punch them back, favourably closing the distance to the knight that was called as the captain.

“Uwaaa!!! Don’t come any closer!!”

The captain was visibly flustered. He hurriedly threw away the sword in his hand, and in place of that, unsheathed a dagger that was at his waist.

(?! What is he intending to do?)

If you are going to clash with the enemy, you would normally have more of an advantage with the long sword.

And yet, he threw that away and changed to a dagger that’s clearly lacking in effectivity as a weapon.

This mysterious action of his was soon made clear.

At the same time as he points the dagger at me, the blade shines brightly.

“[Holy Light Bullet]!!”

“What?!” (Haine)

A light arrow was shot from the dagger. Is that how I should describe it?

At any rate, it was a light that flew fast like an arrow. If this hits, it would be bad.

“Guh!”

My swung arm comes into contact with the light arrow, and I deflect it.

As expected, I had to stop running and temporarily stay in place.

“Wa?!! You deflected the [Holy Light Bullet]? That’s impossible…”

The captain, who shot the light arrow, had his eyes wide open in shock.

“The power of the Light Goddess that was granted to us, the Aurora Knight corps…this [Holy Light Bullet] that had holy power packed in it was…repelled by a countryside bum like him. There’s no way that’s possible!”

“Why is a human utilizing the power of light? I don’t understand, but…” (Haine)

I was so surprised, I ended up utilizing a bit of my power of darkness.

“Don’t just go talking down about the countryside when you just come invading our village!!” (Haine)

The charge resumes.

I close the distance to the knight captain that was completely bent back now.

“Hiiih!! Don’t get closer!! [Holy Light Bullet]! [Holy Light Bullet]! [Holy Light Bullet]! [Holy Light Bullet]! [Holy Light Bullet]! [Holy Light Bullet]!”

Falling into panic, he shot light arrows like crazy, but that’s exactly why they didn’t hit.

There was already no need to deflect them, I simply had to dodge them, and was easily able to enter into fighting range.

“This is the end.” (Haine)

And then, as I was about to punch the fully shaken face of this man—

Something stopped my fist.

It wasn’t the leader that was simply panicked all around.

“H-Hero-dono?!”

Is what the captain said.

The one that suddenly appeared and entered in between me and the captain was a person wearing an equally white shining armor, however, its presence was completely different.

It gave out majesty.

A beautiful girl.

  • 04: Hero’s Arrival

“Hero-dono?! Hero-dono!”

The captain that was weak on his knees and agitated, stood back up suddenly.

“This villager was opposing us! He went against the Light Church! Please give him swift divine punishment!”

The fist that was supposed to be dug on his face, was stopped by the shield of the girl that had suddenly appeared.

From the impression the armor she wears is giving, I can tell that she is in the same organization as these knights that are invading our village.

“Captain Vesage…”

The girl turns back to the captain.

“Why did you depart on your own volition? I told you that I was going to check the state of the seventh recruitment corp, and that you were to stay in standby until I returned.”

“That’s…uhm, that’s…!”

It looks like they are quarreling.

“Also, what’s with this atmosphere? It is as if you are capturing the place. Captain Vesage, what in the world are you trying to do here?”

“That’s, uhm…we, the Aurora knight corp, for the sake of gathering new members…” (Vesage)

The Captain-san speaks with a fading voice like that of a child being scolded after a prank.

It seems the girl got tired of listening to what he had to say, this time, she turns to my direction.

“You are someone from this village, right?”

“Eh? Y-Yeah…” (Haine)

Since she was being well-mannered, I reflexively respond in the same way.

The knights around, and the villagers that were gathered outside by those knights, had their attention on that girl and were not moving.

“I am truly sorry.”

Is what she said as she lowered her head deeply.

Looks like she is apologizing, or more like, there’s no doubt she is.

“I apologize from the bottom of my heart for the trouble that our people of the Church have caused to your village. I strictly ordered them not to disturb the livelihood of the villagers, but it ended up in this. It is all because of my own negligence.”

“Eh, uhm…”

“I will have the knights put away their weapons immediately. On my name, I assure the safety and freedom of the villagers. On top of that, can you please hear what I have to say?”

In that space of time, she lowers her head even deeper to the point that I could only see the back of her head.

‘What beautiful hair’, is what I thought, but this is not the time to be thinking about that.

Looking at my surroundings, it seems the knights sheathed their swords with the words of the girl, placed aside their spears, and lower their heads in apology.

Should I consider this as the danger being gone for the time being? But it looks like they don’t have any intentions of leaving.

It was as if they were saying they won’t be moving an inch until we hear out what they have to say.

“Haine.” “Haine?!”

Mother was accompanied by father and were coming to where we are.

I let out one heavy sigh.

In the end, I decided to listen.

“We came from a place a lot further away from here, the Light capital. We are the Light Church.”

“Light Church?” (Haine)

“Yes. One of the five Gods of creation, the church that follows the Light Goddess Inflation-sama.”

The five Gods of creation.

It refers to the five Gods that created this world.

The Light Goddess Inflation, the Fire God, Wind God, Water God, Mother Earth God.

For me who was a Dark God, they are the hateful people that sealed me. However, it seems they are targets of religious faith for the people here.

Well, it is obvious huh. They are Gods after all.

“And I am the light hero that represents the Light Church, Kourin Karen.” (Karen)

The word hero is not a word I am familiar with.

Even in my memories as a Dark God, I don’t know about such a title.

“And so, what is this Light Church and the hero-sama doing in such a remote place like this?” (Haine)

From how the talk has gone, it seems I have no choice but to be the representative of this village, so I ask that of the hero Karen-san.

“We are currently looking for new knights.” (Karen)

“Knights?” (Haine)

“Yes, one of the organizations of the Light Church, the Aurora Knight corps. We are being troubled by a lack of personnel. In order to protect the innocent people that follow the Light Goddess, the number of knights is still not enough.” (Karen)

Hearing that, the words the high-and-mighty Captain said about gathering all villagers, especially the young ones between 10 to 20 years old made sense.

“But it is a honest-to-word recruitment! In order to accept people that want to become members of the knight corps, we moved around the towns and villages in the area.” (Karen)

“But the knights that came here are clearly different, right? Not only did they try to recruit, it felt like they were going to kidnap the young ones of this village. The one who was leading this was…” (Haine)

The gaze of me and Karen-san were directed at the same place.

If I remember correctly, his name is Vesage.

“I-I had no choice!” (Vesage)

At this late of the game, captain Vesage spat out excuses.

“Since I have the chance, I will say it. Hero-dono is way too easygoing! There’s no need to do something as lukewarm as recruiting, we should gather all the people here that can fight, and strengthen the Aurora knight corps as much as possible!” (Vesage)

“In order to do that, you tried to levy the youngsters of this village?” (Haine)

“That’s right. Not ‘recruiting’ but ‘levying’!” (Vesage)

Captain Vesage bites back at the retort I made.

“Haine-san.” (Karen)

Karen-san also enters the talk.

“I also admit that the methods of captain Vesage were forceful, however, the grace of the five Gods has begun thinning in this world. The monsters are running rampant, and in order to fight against it, we have to gather people.” (Karen)

Even Karen-san.

“Of course, we are not forcing anyone. However, I want to fight together with everyone in order to protect this world, and in order to do that, I have to ask of you…please!” (Karen)

Karen-san once again lowers her head to the point I see her back of the head.

This time it wasn’t an apology but a request.

And it wasn’t only for me, but to all the villagers. But the only thing that was returned was agitation.

Can’t be helped.

The sincerity of Karen-san was clear as day, but the villagers also have their own life. 10 to 20 years old, in other words, they would be taking our strongest workforce, which is totally troublesome for the village.

There will probably be no one wanting to join, but Karen-san’s side is giving airs that they won’t be budging an inch unless someone raises their hand.

If handled poorly, the knights might once again burst and resume hunting people.

“……Understood.” (Haine)

Heaving a sigh, I step forward.

A voice called out ‘Haine!’. It was the voice of mother, and that voice pierced my chest for an instant.

“I will go. That’s why, please be satisfied with only me. Don’t try to persuade the other villagers, and of course, don’t harm them. Those are my conditions for joining.” (Haine)

  • 05: I obtained a homeland

This is how it was decided that I, Kuromiya Haine, will be joining the Light Church.

I received the praise from the surroundings in the sense that I sacrificed myself for the village, but it is not like I myself didn’t have other reasons.

That’s…to see the world.

In the battle with the Gods that occurred 1,600 years ago, I -the Dark God- was sealed by the victors, the other five Gods, and they should have recreated the world in the way they wanted.

And in truth, it seems the Light Goddess, Inflation, has created a church that follows her, and there’s a high chance the others are doing the same thing.

In the time I was absent, just how much did they intervene with the humans?

In order to investigate that, I will be going. If there’s something that surpasses the boundaries of acceptable, it is my role as a God myself to correct it.

In truth, this is something I should have done sooner. This was one of the reasons why I reincarnated as a human after all.

And yet, there was a reason why I let it drag until I turned 18 years.

The reason for that was…

 *   *   *

“Haine, are you really…really going?”

The moment of my departure, mother grabbed my hand with reluctance and was not showing any signs of releasing it.

I…was also unable to shake away that hand of hers and stayed just like that.

“It is fine already, let Haine go.”

“But dear, Haine has not left this village even once, you know? Even when he goes hunting, he would come back in less than 3 days without fail, and yet, if he were to go to the city, who knows when he will come back…”

I was also worried about not being able to attend to mother who has a weak constitution.

Actually, there’s times when mother worried about me and ended up worsening her physical condition because of it. If possible, I don’t want to leave either.

I was prepared for it, but this is a more painful farewell than expected.

And then, the linked hand of mother and I was gently separated by father.

“Haine is a man. The time will come when he has to leave to the outside world in order to ascertain his own worth. And today is the day. If you are his mother, congratulate Haine for the start of his new life…… Haine.”

“Yes, father.” (Haine)

“You probably don’t remember, but when you were 1 year old, there was a time when you disappeared from the house. Your mom and I were searching desperately for you, but we were unable to find you even when it reached the night, and we thought it was already too late.”

“…”

“However, the moment night came, you came back all of a sudden. You came back to the house on your own. It was as if you had finished your stroll and was coming back from it. Since then, mom became an incredible worrywart, but I, on the contrary, was impressed. ‘Being able to do such a big adventure when you are only 1 year old, just how big of an adventure will you be able to achieve when you are an adult?’ Is what I thought.”

Father places both hands on my shoulders.

“If it’s about me and mom, don’t worry. You are not the kind of man who should live your whole life in a small village. Go see the world. Think of this event as a good chance to do that.”

Saying this, father hugged me with both arms.

For the soul of the Dark God, this was only a body that was coincidentally chosen in order to descend to the surface world, however, for the current me, these people are without doubt…my parents.

These 18 years until now, I have been poured with love, taught a lot of things, and was raised by them.

There’s no way I would think this connection with them was just a fictitious one.  

“Mother, father…I love you.” (Haine)

I hug mother and father, and for the first time in my life, I depart to the world where these people are not there.

At that moment, I once again learned…I was a result from inheriting the soul of the God of Darkness, but before that, I am a human…I am Kuromiya Haine.

  1. Hello there guys! Reigokai here!
    As you can see from the chapters, they are pretty short.
    Tsuki ga Michibiku was a special cookie in that regard. This is the actual length of normal web novels.

    But I have a policy! Rather than bringing out constant small sized bites, I prefer cooking an actual meal!

    That brings me to the format in the chapters. I have decided on making it as you see, 2-3 chapters in one link. This way it saves in the clicking, and it also gives more substance for comments.

    Because, just as the meal of you guys are the chapters, my meals are the comments.

    Okay! Now, onto the schedule!

    Every 3 days, I will be releasing two links of 2-3 chapters. In other words, 4-6 chapters in total. I will be deciding how many to pack in the link, since I like chapters better when they have a decent closing.

    Regarding the sponsored chapters, it will be as usual (every Sunday), but for obvious reasons, the threshold will be 1/4 less. Also, they will never come out individually. They will follow the same format as above.

    Now, since this is a new project, it will obviously be subject to changes as time goes on!
    If you have any opinions about any changes you want like: names (Infureshon for example, lol), format, addressing, etc; feel free to comment them.

    I will be publishing a separate post for the comments though. Since I felt like many people would miss it if I did this somewhere that’s not in a chapter.

    1. Heck, not only that, but it seems so far that his existence isn’t even recognized as a god. Either that or the other gods told humans that he was to blame for monsters and for evil and that he wanted to enslave humanity, and that they(the 5 gods) just want to protect humanity.
      If this is what happens, then I’m going to be quite mad at them.

    2) The pacing seems similar Tsuki ga Michibiku. It’s kinda slow, but information is being provided at a good rate.
    3) He seems to have taken notice of the hero’s features (to some degree). Hopefully there’ll be some romance.

  7. Aww. Good on on the author. Only 5 short chapters in and they(he? she?) already managed a pretty emotional moment.
    You can tell it’s a job well done humanizing a character when you make a god seem human with very relatable human attachment.

    So the few important bits of information I could gleam from these chapters…

    Firstly, gods are the foundation for magic.
    Secondly, each god seems to have a church and possibly a chosen hero.
    Third, the churches aren’t particularly hostile to each other so much as protective of their own factions with monsters being the main threat.
    Finally, the grace of the gods are fading from the world. Is it possibly because something happened to them, which was a slight vibe I got from the prologue? Or maybe it’s because Inflation and possibly others also reincarnated to chase after Entropy?

    Hmm…a lot of speculation to be had, but the main point of this novel seems to be an exploration of the world from a god’s perspective, with adjustment where it’s needed.

      1. No, well, that seems like the obvious conclusion to me.

        Or at the very least, they were an unintentional occurrence during creation alongside humans, and humans were the ones chosen to be “used”, so the rest of the lifeforms got allocated to the role of faith bait.

        Liked by 2 people

    1. Also, I wonder what each god did in the creation of the world and of its inhabitants. So far we know of the Light God(dess), the Fire God and the Dark God. I suppose the other 3 would be a Wind/Air God, a Water God and a Earth God.
      So, they logically all had a hand at creating the world itself, some more than others. I don,t think the Dark God had much to do with the creation of the different aspects of nature other than the cycle of day and night together with the Light Goddess. As for living beings, thy were probably made by combining the powers of different gods.
      Plant matters(Earth, Water and/or Light (depending on the kind))
      Birds(Wind/Air God)
      Reptiles(Earth, Water and/pr Fire(depending on the kind))
      Mammals(Earth and/or Water(depending on the kind))
      Arthropod (Earth and/or Water(depending on the kind))
      Fishes(Water)
      Humans (Dark and Light) (With Dark making the human mind, thus explaining his confidence in its strength and potential, while all other gods only made living beings with inferior minds since they didn’t see them as anything other than slaves)

      Then, there’s the matter of possible mythical creatures(the gods responsible for their creation would depend on which mythical creature) and of monsters(same as for mythical creatures).

      Like

      1. I don’t know about that. I feel like life would be something that all gods would have a role in creating, no matter what form.

        All forms of life need something from all elements, though different in proportion. The most prominent element is the patron god, of course, but there should be some sort of balance between them.

        Well, this mostly only has a philosophical basis. The author will elaborate over time, hopefully. 

        The only theory I have with a more rooted basis is that maybe Darkness is an element that restrains Light to reasonable levels in an interesting subversion of the usual relationship.
        Seeing as how the Light Goddess is somewhat callous and controlling, but she’s attached to Entropy and seems to at least somewhat listen to him even if it’s in a “I don’t care anyway” way.

        Like

      2. Well, i don,t think there even is a patron god here, and I feel that “Dark” fits the element of the “psyche” more than any other of the gods here, which is why I think he’s the one behind the mind of humanity, and it wouldn’t make sense for the other gods to have given such potential to humans in the first place. It the human mind was a cooperative effort, they would have undermined him when they would have been making it. I don’t think he would have allowed them adding a “complete subservience” clause in the human mind, for example.

    Its a good story, but I kinda dont like the name “Entropy” for a protagonist, but well, the dark god got reincarnatet “randomnly” and his last name is “kuro…etc” xDDD
    I hope he turn to be at least a bit more serious and kill someone if it is needed, not overdoing the good natured syndrom a lot of protagonists normally have.

    As a novel that is currently going on and have already a great lot of chapters to read I strongly recomend you guys “Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku”

  12. I feel like the author’s trying to move the plot along way too fast just so s/he can get to the “good parts” that s/he wants to write.
    Although it could be the author’s intention, because of the pacing, I didn’t really get to have the chance to feel attached to his village and his parents — something that I think is quite important, especially when it comes to setting the atmosphere in certain scenes.
    For example: at the part where the Aurora corp were doing their “recruitment”, there wasn’t even a little bit of sense of dread or foreboding at all, in my case that is. All because his 18 years of life in the village, which we only got a glimpse of before said event and a little bit right when his mother was being pulled out of their house, wasn’t fleshed out at all. Add in the fact that he’s literally the reincarnation of a God who 1v5’d the other Gods and had to be sealed and any thrill or suspense went down the drain, all because we weren’t given a chance to feel attached to the village or his 18 years of life in there at all.
    Another example would be his farewell with his parents. I’m gonna straight up say that I felt absolutely nothing. Again, it could be the author’s intention not to have us feel much about Haine’s life in the sticks, or maybe the author even intends to show it in flashbacks or something (which I doubt), but if we were given more time for literally everything shown so far, the scenes, especially the supposedly emotional ones, wouldn’t feel so…inorganic…
    Anyway, that’s just me giving a little bit of a rant. I’ll still follow it though since I like the premise and this is what Reigokai chose, and if TsukiMichi is anything to go by, I might like this one too.

  15. This will be an interesting story; to see the “evil God” really being the good one, and how he will affect change with the intention of benefiting humanity.

    It also provides some foreshadowing; the fact that the Gods’ powers have greatly weakened likely means that the Goddess Infureshon herself and the rest have also weakened compared to the Dark God himself. I wonder if some of them will also end up reincarnating if only to bring about a revival of their followers and faith in order to regain strength.

    It’d also be equally interesting to see if the Goddess of Light ends up getting jealous enough of her beloved’s adventures and eventual harem, and ends up joining in somehow as well.

    1. I will try my best to explain here.

      He joined the Light Knights because he wanted to know about what the other Gods have done in this world, that was his main objective in reincarnating after all. The trigger could have been anything, it just so happened that this worked as one. He was reluctant to leave his parents, if that wasn’t the case, he would have long been gone to check the world and investigate it without the need of a trigger at all.
      Why did the harem plot have to pop here? Sorry but, there was a proper explanation why he decided to do it. (Fast warning though, there’s 2 love interests, and a lot of female cast, so if you are the type that decides on things in this way, there ya go.)

      He was reborn into a human because he loves humans. The title of the story itself says so. The reason why he reincarnated with human parents…I really don’t know what you should feel about that.
      What’s the problem in this one? That it doesn’t make sense he chose to be reborn with parents instead of recreating a body from zero in x place?

      I also don’t understand what you mean by state of being as God into Human. Are you referring to the abilities he has as a God in a human body? If so, this will be shown later. If I didn’t get that right, can you please elaborate more on this point?

      Well, everyone has their likes and dislikes. I know it is not the type of cookie for everyone after all. There’s a heavy hate for harem; but on the other side, there’s also people that have a cult-level obsession in regards to only reading stories that have harem on it, and if there’s none, they avoid it like plague.
      In that sense, anything goes, lol.

      Also, I have said this before, but when dropping a series, whether it is mine or not, please, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF.
      This may be your opinion, but it also affects negatively and is information that’s totally unnecessary.
      Translators, artists, writers; those kind of things hit them hard, and I have seen people drop projects because of it. For future’s sake, don’t go publicizing that.
      Different from a comment that has negative arguments that can become fruitful and open new windows to discussion and different views in the story, this dropping doesn’t bring anything good for the people that enjoy it and the person that provides it.

  18. I swear this Karen is a total Hibiki copy. Especially her character is compareable for example how she recruits because of some danger. It was exactly like Hibiki wanting to recruit Makoto.
    I wonder if you guys will hate her as much as Hibiki but I don’t think so because the MC likes her so you like her too.

    1. To begin with, I never really hated Hibiki. She’s just…a “character”. If anything, I like her for being both an absurdly clichéd hero archetype while still being a wholesome character with her own flaws, motivations, and desires.

      From the looks of things though, Karen is indeed shaping up to be similar to Hibiki. Time will tell whether she’ll be as obsessed with controlling the flow of the world or knowingly condemn a race of people though.

      1. Well she seems to condemn monsters if that counts.
        Maybe the story will turn into Humans hating Monsters and Monster King starting Rebellion war.

      2. Nope. Monsters don’t count (yet). We have no idea how the so called “monster races” work in this world compared to Tsuki ga.

        Hell, it’s not so easy defining how they work in Tsuki ga either. We’ll more likely judge by her treatment of other-elemental people, and how receptive she is to monsters that don’t show hostility to humans.

  19. … Is this the light goddess reincarnated as a ‘hero’ in order to stalk on her dark god crush?

    Also I would not trust these guys an inch. Chances are they’ll swing back by the village in a week to press-gang the remaining villagers.

  20. These knights really likes to put the cart before the horse. What the point if having knights and such if they dont have food? Whats the point in having knights if they sooner or later become arrogant and spoiled, not wanting to protect remote places that produces their seedlings?

    1. Yup, that is indeed utterly retarded. Sadly, this is something that has happened historically, but only when they really needed troops urgently. It didn’t happen out of nowhere just because they wanted to have more troops to protect their territories in normal times(aka while not at war). They would have instead recruited people normally.

      Sure, some idiot lords might have done it(this abnormal overly aggressive recruitment) in the past in the real world, but it wasn’t a normal thing in medieval Europe.
      The weirdest thing about this however is that when such things happened, the people recruited weren’t made into knights, they were made as the lowest infantry forces.
      The case here of the people recruited being then formed as knights makes no sense when compared with the method of recruitment they seem to use.

  21. Heh~. So the god they worship is called Inflation-sama? I guess the idulgences at the church must be pretty pricey, huh?

  22. ‘What beautiful hair’, is what I thought, but this is not the time to be thinking about that. At this moment the Hero skill called “Charisma” has been actived, beware of the next step symptom called “Charm” !!! (As we know how ANNOYING being charmed is 🙂 )
