Chapter 11-13: Monster Invasion

  • 11: Monster Invasion


It was only for a few minutes, but the terrifying speed of the flying machine was taking away my willpower and stamina.

“To think such a fearsome thing existed! The city is seriously scaryyy!!” (Haine)

I roll down from the flying machine that had already landed and enjoy the nostalgic feeling of the ground.

“Haine-san, please get a grip of yourself. We are already at the location, or more like, at enemy territory. It wouldn’t be strange for anything to happen.” (Karen)

Even though Karen-san was on the same ride, she didn’t show a single sign of being exhausted.

“The fastest the light knight corps’ main force can arrive is at best after 5 hours. In that time, we will scout out the place and investigate the monsters’ movements.” (Karen)

“…Uhm, Karen-san, wait for a bit!” (Haine)

“I want to avoid battle, but please be prepared for when it turns out as unavoidable. But at that moment, I will be taking the front, so I won’t let Haine-san face any life endangering situation.” (Karen)

“Karen-san!! Karen-san!!” (Haine)

“?!! Yes?” (Karen)

Because I suddenly raised my voice, Karen-san seems to have gotten surprised.

But if I didn’t do that, she wouldn’t listen to what I have to say, so it can’t be helped.

“…I still don’t know anything though.” (Haine)

“Eh?” (Karen)

“Things like: why I was brought here, where is this place, what is happening here, what should I be doing; Karen-san, you still haven’t explained a single thing.” (Haine)

“Eh?! …Ah, right!” (Karen)

So she finally noticed, Karen-san went: ‘Sorry, sorry!’ while prostrating, and then, she explained the details of what has transcurred till now.

“First of all, this place is one of the sections of the Trixia forest located at the southeast of Apollon City.” (Karen)

From what Karen-san says, it seems a report about the sighting of monsters was received from the Trixia forest.

“Monster…” (Haine)

“That’s right, monsters. Subjugating monsters is the main mission of the Light Knight Corps. And so, we came here in a big hurry.” (Karen)

“…Well, I understand that much but, why was I brought here as well?” (Haine)

“Uh…” (Karen)

“There’s a lot of knights at the knight corps, right? You could have brought someone there, and yet, why did you decide on a fresh recruit, moreover, one that failed the exam instantly?” (Haine)

It is not like I don’t like helping out here, but there’s way too many points that don’t make sense in the actions of Karen-san.

Karen-san made a bitter expression, and answers as if groaning.

“…The knight corps won’t come.” (Karen)

“Hah?” (Haine)

“Just like I said before, they will arrive here in 5 hours at best. Gathering will take 1 hour, preparing will take 1 hour, and to move all the way here, around 3 hours.” (Karen)


“But! If we were to wait that much, it will be way too late! It is true that monsters have appeared in this forest, and if we don’t take them out promptly, there’s no point in me being the light hero.” (Karen)

Once again, Karen-san lowers her head at me.

“I am plenty aware that it is strange for me to have Haine-san, who just joined the church, do something like this. But right now, please don’t ask anymore and just lend me your assistance!” (Karen)

“Karen-san…” (Haine)

“In this forest, there might still be people that came without knowing that monsters have appeared. Finding those people and having them take refuge, it would be impossible by myself!” (Karen)

The forest around us is still peaceful and there’s only the sound of wind making the leaves dance. However, there’s already danger inside this place.


I turn my heels.

“Let’s separate and begin moving. If we are going to search for people that didn’t manage to escape in time, that way is more efficient.” (Haine)

“B-But! If Haine-san were to encounter a monster while you are acting on your own!!” (Karen)

“Even if I look like this, I am the son of a hunter. This may be my first time in this place, but if it’s a forest, it is practically like a garden. Even against a monster, I will show you I can run away from it.” (Haine)

I end the conversation and run off.

“Now then, monsters huh.” (Haine)

There’s been a time in the past that I have fought against monsters.

Not as a Dark God, but in the time I was living as Kuromiya Haine.

In the village I was born and raised in, there’s been times when some would appear mixed with the beasts around, and in those cases, the ones to deal with it are the hunters of the village, father and I, but different from beasts, monsters vanish like mist the moment they are defeated, so there’s not a single profit from it.

‘It is an enemy that only brings losses’, is how father categorized them in terms of problematic ones. That’s what monsters are.

They were clearly different from people, beasts, and plants, that had been born by receiving the grace of the Gods.

Or more like, I don’t remember making monsters in the time I was the Dark God.

Things I didn’t create exist now. One more mystery has been added in this space of 1,600 years.

“Well, leaving that aside…” (Haine)

I stop my feet, and after confirming that there’s plenty enough distance from Karen-san, I stabilize my breathing and concentrate.

If there’s really people that were late in running away inside this forest, there’s no way we would find them by searching blindly.

I am a reincarnation of the Dark God.

Even if I am in the body of a human, I can still utilize the divine power of darkness, and am able to feel the ‘dark waves’ a person releases.

I touched the topic a bit with the talk about elements not that long ago but, humans were created by all six Gods at the genesis of the world.

Earth, wind, water, fire, light, and darkness; it is because all those elements are mixed in that they have all elements, and depending on the person, there’s also elements they are good at and elements they are not good at.

That’s why, the shadow element will always be present inside the humans. It is just that the people themselves don’t know.

As the reincarnation of the Dark God, I can feel that part of them.

…….I found a reaction.

“…So there really was someone who didn’t manage to escape in time?!” (Haine)

I run full speed to the location where the reaction came from.

And after not a long period of time, I find an old woman and a small girl leaning on the trunk of a tree. It is probably a grandmother and her daughter.

At any rate, I ran to the place.

“Are you okay?!” (Haine)

The old woman was rubbing her swollen leg in pain.I can tell at a glance that she sprained it.

“Ah, you, who are you? This place is dangerous. Monsters have appeared and—”

“I know. I am a person from the Light Church that has come here for that exact reason.” (Haine)

It is fine for me to say that, right?

“Ah, that’s great! I came to this forest with my grandchild to gather edible wild plants, but…to think we would be encountering something as terrifying as that! When we tried to hurriedly run away, I fell, and…!”

She is probably agitated.

After finishing emergency treatment, I shoulder her on my back.

“Grandma, grandma!”

“You come as well. We will be leaving the forest. If possible, it would be great if you were to guide the way.” (Haine)

It was at this moment… this forest, that only had the gentle rustling of leaves, had a thunderous sound reverberate in it, and while a lot of leaves were being scattered around, the figure of those guys appeared.

So it has finally come.

A monster.


  • 12: Fierce battle against monsters


It has appeared; a monster.

A bug-shaped monster that is around the size of a human, putting it more concretely, it is a dragonfly.

A big dragonfly the size of a human was flying in the air while staring right at the old woman, her grandchild, and I.

“…It is totally aiming at us.” (Haine)

Monsters only attack humans.

For example, even if a rabbit or a deer were to pass here, they wouldn’t even stutter one bit and attack only the humans. They are accursed beings that work in that way.

“Grandma, I am scared!”

A young girl, that probably doesn’t even reach 5 years old, was clinging to the old woman while trembling all over, accurately speaking, she was clinging at the old woman that I was carrying on my back.

“Person from the church, please just leave me behind and run away with my grandchild. This is my last will!”

“Can’t do that. After being told that, I end up wanting to save you two even more.” (Haine)

For now, I lower the old woman from my back, and face the giant dragonfly that’s alone.

The giant dragonfly continues flying in place as it keeps an eye on us. As if measuring the timing to jump at us.

Noticing that, I purposely turn my eyes away from the giant dragonfly for an instant.

It was baited splendidly, and the dragonfly charges towards us.

“Now!!” (Haine)

While avoiding it with a hair’s breadth, I place a hand on the head of the dragonfly that had come right where I am.

And then…

“[Dark Matter Set]” (Haine)

Dark particles surge out from my palm.

The giant dragonfly that came in contact with it had its head crushed, and it collapses.

This is the power I possess as the reincarnation of the Dark God.

What I did just now was Dark Matter, or so to speak, I have released darkness and created particles that normally don’t exist in the natural environment with the dark divine power.

Its special characteristic is that it is able to absorb all elements excluding darkness and make them disappear.

On top of that, it can do things like freely controlling the direction of the gravity and the strength of it.

What I released just now was in a small dose, so to the old woman and the little girl, it must have looked like I crushed the head of the dragonfly with crazy strength.

Since its head was crushed, the dragonfly died, and the remaining parts turned into small grains of dust and disappeared.

This is what monsters are; living beings that are outside the principles of nature.

“It is safe now. Let’s resume our return to the village.” (Haine)

The moment I was about to turn to the old woman.

“Church person, at your back!”

The shout of the old woman made me return my gaze, and at that place, there was another giant dragonfly.

“A second one?!” (Haine)

Even though I defeated one just now, a new monster appeared.


“It is not only 2… there’s 3…4…10…20!!!” (Haine)

There’s already too many dragonflies to even count, and they were covering the sky.

To think there were this many…

It is not an amount I can’t wipe out by increasing the density of Dark Matter, but the old woman and the little girl will definitely be witnessing it.

The other choice would be to carry both the old woman and the little girl and run away swiftly, but against these giant dragonflies that have wings, moreover, with these numbers, I don’t think I would be able to outrun them.

Thinking about the natural state of this world, my dark divine power is something I would like keeping secret, but…it seems it can’t be helped. I will just have to hope that the old woman can keep it secret and that the little girl will be taken as fantasizing.

“[Dark Matter S—” (Haine)

“Wait there!!”

The sudden call made me hurriedly stop the dark matter that was about to come out from my palm.

An armoured girl is running here with ragged breath.

“Karen-san?!” (Haine)

“I’m glad. You are okay, right?! Pythonflies were gathering at an alarming rate, so I thought there was definitely something going on!” (Karen)

“Pythonflies?” (Haine)

“I am talking about those giant dragonflies there. A wind element monster, Pythonfly. As normal from a wind element, their body is fragile, but to compensate for that, they have wings and fast speed, and the most problematic part is that they act in swarms. The moment they find a human, they quickly gather like this.” (Karen)

Karen-san turns her gaze towards the old woman and the little girl.

“I understand the situation. Just leave the rest to me, Haine-san. Please protect the civilians.” (Karen)

“But fighting those numbers with just you alone would be—” (Haine)

“It is okay.” (Karen)

Karen-san unsheathes the sword that was hanging at her waist.

A beautiful white and shiny blade that doesn’t lose to her hair and armor. A very straightforward sword.

“I have the light divine power that the Light Goddess has honoured me with. I became a hero in order to stand at the front and protect the powerless.” (Karen)

The white blade shines. As if power was being gathered in it.

I remember seeing that before. At the time when I fought the knights at my homeland, captain Vesage had gathered light divine power inside a dagger when he shot the light arrow at me.

But the one that captain Vesage was using was only as big as a fruit knife, compared to the sword of Karen-san that is clearly a sharp sword that would be able to split a monster in two just as it is.

“Holy sword Saint-George that was given to me together with my title as the Light Hero, please release here the holy power that is gathered inside your body!” (Karen)

The light divine power that was released from the sword flew straight to the sky and bisects the Pythonflies that were at the edge of the swarm.

Something that I would call a light sword wave had been released from the sword of Karen-san. The light sword wave stretched widely from its sides, and perfectly sliced in two the swarm of Pythonflies that were a mass in the sky.

Several tens of giant dragonflies were falling, and before they reached the ground, they turned into dust.

“Incredible!!” (Haine)

With only one swing, she was able to defeat several monsters.

It is on a whole different level from the ‘Holy Light Bullet’ that captain Vesage used. So this is the power of the hero.

“…But…” (Haine)

The swarm of Pythonflies were still occupying the sky.

It is true that the ‘Holy Light Blade’ is big and unparalleled, and can cut down everything it touches, but it can be called a line attack. It wasn’t enough to wipe the swarm that spreads around a whole side of the sky.

In other words, she did defeat a lot, but there’s still a lot more left.

“It is okay. Until the last one falls, I will use the ‘Holy Light Blade’ as many times as it takes…” (Karen)

Or so Karen-san says passionately, but I wonder if she can really release a big move like that continuously.

“Stop it, Karen-san. The best move would be to use that technique to provide cover while we run with the civilians.” (Haine)

“But if we don’t wipe them out here and now, they might attack other people. As a hero, there’s no way I can forgive tha—” (Karen)

At that moment, the voice of someone, that was not her or me, reverberated in the forest.

“[Flame Burst]”

At the next instant, the sky, that was covered by grotesque Pythonflies, was now covered by something entirely different.

Deep crimson red flames.

Those Pythonflies were burnt by those flames and became ashes, and not a single one remained as they disappeared.

“Wa?!” “What’s this?!”

Karen-san and I were taken by surprise, and could only look at the crimson abnormality in the sky.

“Hmph, as I thought, the Light Hero is useless.”

And then, the shadow of a person appears. It was the same voice that resounded in the sky a few moments ago.

“In the end, you are not worthy of being called a hero. I am the only true hero. It is none other than the one that has received the divine power of the God, Nova-sama, the fire hero, Katack Mirack.”


  • 13: Second Hero


“…Fire hero, Katack Mirack?”

I look at the girl that suddenly appeared with surprise.

Even if I say girl, she is tall and has a suntanned skin, and at a glance, you would even mistake her for a man. But being able to identify her as a woman even with that is because of her breast area that was widely open.

Fire Hero

“Mirack-chan?!” (Karen)

“Serves you right, Kourin Karen.” (Mirack)

The girl called Mirack approaches Karen-san with rude steps.

She was practically picking a fight.

“Being cornered by something as weak as a Pythonfly, you weakling. If I hadn’t come in, who knows what would have happened?” (Mirack)

“…Yeah, thanks, Mirack-chan.” (Karen)

The attitude of Karen-san towards her was cowering, and the behaviour she has shown until now was completely in hiding.

By the way, in that time, I judged that the monsters were now gone and the danger had disappeared, so I returned to helping the old woman and her grandchild.

“R-Right, Haine-san! I will introduce you!” (Karen)

And Karen-san called me back.

“She is Katack Mirack-san. The fire hero.” (Karen)


I don’t understand well.

“Wait, isn’t the hero Karen-san? Are there several heroes?” (Haine)

“No, I am the light hero. Haine-san also knows about the five Gods of creation, right?” (Karen)

“Yes, of course.” (Haine)

Remembering the times before I reincarnated, I end up feeling the urge to stab a fork inside the nose of each one of them.

“In this world, there’s churches that follow their respective God among the five. One of them is the Light Church that follows the Light Goddess, Inflation-sama. It refers to us.” (Karen)

“Okay…” (Haine)

“There’s also the churches that follow the Fire God, Nova; Water God, Coacervate; Wind God, Quasar; Mother Earth, Mantle. And each church has their own hero that represents them. Mirack-chan is the fire hero that was chosen for the Fire Church.” (Karen)

“In that case, there’s five heroes in total?” (Haine)

“That’s r—” “Don’t joke around.”

Karen-san was going to answer, but Mirack interjects.

“There’s only one hero, the others are all fakes. And the real hero is me. Because I am the strongest hero within all the others after all. At the very least, I am better than a hero that may have thinned the monster swarm but had gotten the better of her.” (Mirack)


The voice of Karen-san shrivels.

“Seriously, what a saddening way of fighting that was, light hero. Compared to that, I used ‘Flame Burst’ and wiped them all out. That proves the power that the Fire God, Nova-sama, has granted me is superior to that of the Light Goddess by leaps and bounds.” (Mirack)

“I don’t think that’s true.” (Haine)

“What?!” (Mirack)

Mirack turns to my direction, completely glaring at me. It was an anger that felt as if she would spit fire from her eyes, but I continued without caring.

“Karen-san’s ‘Holy Light Blade’ is a technique that sends a light sword wave of light divine power. Its power is high, but it can’t be considered a large area of effectivity. On the other hand, your ‘Flame Burst’, was it? That one is an attack that has large area of effectivity and is the type that spreads. Nova’s powers are mostly those types after all. The situation just now was coincidentally favorable for the fire element. Isn’t that all there’s to it?” (Haine)

“What’s with this weakling?! So conceited!!” (Mirack)

“Also, no matter how high-and-mighty you act, there’s a truth that’s unmoveable.” (Haine)


“The fact that Karen-san was the first one to arrive at the scene.” (Haine)

Being pointed out that, the loose tongue of Mirack-san had stopped.

She most likely didn’t have any words to refute it.

“If you are here, that means you came here promptly when you received the report of the monster sightings, but even so, Karen-san was faster. That’s why it was possible to save this old lady and her grandchild. That’s without doubt the achievement of Karen-san, not yours.” (Haine)

The old woman and her grandchild that had gotten back their composure gave their gratitude to Karen-san.

She was worried about the situation on this side, but right now she was responding to the two.

“Also, you were able to burn down the monsters in one swipe because Karen-san’s attack had gathered them into one location. If they were scattered here and there, even your fire wouldn’t have been able to wipe them out in one attack. It might even become a difficult fight with caution of not making a mountain fire.” (Haine)

“That’s stupid, something like that is just—!!” (Mirack)

“That’s the reality. In this time’s fight, the light hero that came here first was rescuing the people while luring the monsters, and then, the fire hero wiped them out. A victory through team play.” (Haine)

“Team…play?!” (Mirack)

“That’s right.” (Haine)

I grab the wrist of Mirack-san with my right hand, and with my left hand, I grab the wrist of Karen-san. And then, I bring both close to each other, and had the hand of Mirack-san and Karen-san hold each other.

“Wa?!” “?!!”

In the form of a handshake.

“As humans, as heroes; is there really any need to fight each other? Today’s victory was the victory of you both. Let’s all be happy together!” (Haine)

“Don’t joke around!!!” (Mirack)

With more strength than I expected, the hands that were linked had been shaken off.

And with glaring eyes that were strong enough to ignite someone, she says.   

“You! I don’t know from what countryside you popped out from, but let me tell you this! For me, heroes are as much of an enemy as monsters! Only I am the true hero! I will also settle things up with the other ones in time! To prove who the true hero is!” (Mirack)

Saying what she wanted to say, she turned around and left.

We stood there.

In this forest where the monsters had been defeated and peace had returned, only the sad face of Karen-san remained.

  1. I have a feeling that he’s going to have a harem of female heroes… liter heroines.

    It’s not a spoiler, so don’t be expecting Spoiler-san. And yes Raizu, I’m looking at you.

  2. Woohoo! We finally got to see the Haine explain a little about his power!

    Gravity manipulation? Seriously? That’s pretty sick. Anyone know why darkness is tied to gravity so much?
    There’s black holes, but they’re only dark because of mass sucking away the light. If anything that would be the domain of…Earth? I guess?

    Mirack: “F*CK YOU I’M THE REAL HERO.”
    Karen: : “X0”
    Haine: “Now, now…Play nice, kids.”

    1. I think the reason of the black hole is correct
      maybe if darkness and gravity are often together is probably both to give an element to gravity, and to give a physical manifestation to darkness since ‘darkness’ doesn’t really exist.
      maybe because darkness is sucking up light
      there is probably not very conclusive answer but ‘happened’ to be like that in game media and the likes

      1. Well, dark matter is also a thing.

        From what I understand of the wikipedia entry I read a long time ago-I know, super reliable info-dark matter is an explanation scientists made for some sort matter that they were pretty sure existed in space but couldn’t see for some reason.

        It also behaved differently from other forms of observed matter, though I don’t remember how.

      2. No, Aether has already been proven not to exist. Dark matter only interacts with gravity. There are people that can explain this better than I do, but dark matter is the cause of why most galaxies have as much gravity as it has when if you calculate the amount of mass in the region, it should have all flown away. Why it’s not being directly observed is because it doesn’t interact with the electromagnetic spectrum, making them more or less invisible.

        Don’t confuse Dark Matter with Dark Energy, however. DE is a primary reason why the Universe is expanding faster and faster the way it does. If you want to know more, but don’t want the overly complicated formulas, I recommend SciShow and MinutePhysics on YT. Of course, it’s basically summaries of the concept and those studying the field would say that it’s more complicated than that, but it basically does enough to fill in the basic questions.

      3. I see, so in short, one of the Dark God’s role in creating the world was the creation of gravitational poles, dark matter, possibly dark energy, and thus had the role of making the main planet of this world function, within its own solar system.
        In short, the way I see it, they created a universe(or rather things within one) and he had the role of making things hold together, and with time the dark energy and dark matter respectively made the World/universe expand and hold its parts in constellations. And they then focused on one planet on which they did a lot of work, while the rest continued to expend(and new planets formed naturally) ever since in this relatively new universe. And the planet this story is taking place on would have been created as possible to live on it from the get go instead of going through millions of years to naturally become habitable like planet Earth did.

        At least that’s my current headcanon. (and I don’t think the other planets and space will ever be explored further as a subject in the story, so my headcanon here probably won’t be contradicted in a very long time).

        I mean, it IS possible.

        1. To be honest, I usually don’t imagine isekai stories as having galactic-type universes unless it’s explicitly stated.

          Since gods are usually very real beings that exist in the story, it’s quite possible that it actually operates under the world theories in our mythologies, whether it’s planets growing on trees or being carried on a giant creature’s back.
          More importantly, having a broad universe like ours in these fictions ends up slightly undercutting the weight of events that gods themselves are supposingly focused on.

          Take TsukiMichi, for instance…Bug found that “world” and just sorta appeared and asserted herself there. If the universe was like ours, that implies that there might have been existences like the Superior Dragons somewhere in the vast expanses of that existence.

          If so, why would Bug care about the humans on the Japan-sized continent on just a single planet? Completely separating the lifeforms and blessing each planet as she wants would’ve made things much simpler. Not to mention, Bug apparently dwells in a heavenly realm in the sky, which doesn’t really make sense as far as realistic astrology is concerned.
          That’s why I personally imagine the world of hyumans as either a singular planet-or even a flat piece of land on an ocean-within a small pocket of “existence” compared to Makoto’s own world. Possibly something smaller than even our solar system.

          1. While I agree with that to some extent, I do however feel that what is actually undercutting the gods is them having only been able to create that small of world, even more so when the gods in question are named after the core elements of the universe.
            Had they been named after the core elements of a planet, with the Wind god being the atmosphere instead of Quasar, then I would be more accepting of it being a single world without an actual galactic-type universe.

            (for example, in Magic the Gathering, some Planes are single worlds(ex: Theros, Zendikar, Dominaria, Mirrodin, etc) while others several “worlds” connected together(Ex: Alara), and finally a few(ex: Innistrad) are implied to have actual solar systems and galaxies.

          2. Plus, like I mentioned it was mentioned casually(through how half of the world is always at night no matter the time at your location in the world) in later chapters that it is indeed a planet.

  3. Dark Hero Haine, the strongest hero to have ever existed. The avatar of the Dark God Entropy. Haine is basically Jesus. The human avatar of a god.

    1. I think the 6 element together can govern over all physic law, but a god alone can govern only the few laws related to his element.

  4. Thanks for the chapter Reigokai!
    What a bitchy hero. Wonder if she and Haine will end up having a combat at some point in the story. If so, it will be great to see the reactions of the higher ups XD

  5. “Remembering the times before I reincarnated, I end up feeling the urge to stab a fork inside the nose of each one of them.”

    lol, I like to interpret that he seems to see humans as his innocent children while the other gods are those bad influences that kept him away(sealed him away) from them.

  6. HAHAHAHAHA thank you for this funny chap..
    hah~ there is always a troublesome person with childish heart like this, stupid hero.

  7. Thanks 4 the translation!

    Karen is a bit of an airhead isn’t she. And how likely is that all the heroes are females?

  8. damn…. the MC really Savage…
    he literally ‘slap’ her with the truth…..

    Love the MC…. his lack of “Human’s Deadly Sin” really make him ‘Savage’….

  9. thanks for the chapter

    ‘Katack Mirack’ sound a bit like ‘attack, my rack’ and I feel the urge to tell her to calm her tits

  10. And here I am very dissapointed with Reigo-chan.
    He promised for a release of 3-4 chapter in 3 days. But he released 7.

    Reigo-chan is lying to us~

    P.S. Keep lying to us, in a positive way

  11. “please don’t ask anymore and just lend me your assistance!”..hah this is bad enough and now we get a conceited girl?
    i don’t know how to judge our MC, a calm almost like sage temperament?or a typical protag from shounen harem story?because it seems there’s a switch for his attitude. i will not surprise if he got flustered from seeing some breast..
    drop this i guess..

  12. Thanks for the chapter. Fire attacks will always beat a bug pokemon (back when was playing those games).

    1. Then since the light isn’t very effective on the bugs, what does that make it?

      I wanna say Fairy type, but I think I have the multiplier backwards in that relationship.

      1. I am not so sure myself. But the bugs were wind type and in Naruto wind was weaker to fire. So the fire probably cause extra damage to them. When I think of light I think it can do damage some what depending if the bug and some kind dark element to them. But this pretty much video game talk there.

        1. See, this elemental cycle is slightly tricky, because we have the four classic elements with the two Light and Darkness ones on top of it.

          Fortunately, we already have a hint of Fire being more effective against Wind types. Water obviously trumps Fire, so the cycle would have to go: Water > Fire > Wind > ??? (> ??? > ???) > Water
          Either Earth completes the loop for the four classics with Light and Darkness being a separate mutual vulnerability, or the two extra element are fit into the bigger picture somewhere.

          1. I believe you mabye on to something. That Light and Dark are separate to the other elements and that give average damage and not the extra damage. Of course at the same time they do not have the weakest of the other one’s and could probably defeat monsters in one go depending on how much mana the person uses. And most likely Light and Dark will fit in a bigger picture later on. Maybe like a demon of darkness or something.

          2. Hmm. Now that I think about it, Light as an element would be in its own category if this is the case since the world doesn’t know about Darkness.

            It would be regarded as some sort of neutral damage element that never receives particular penalties or resistances in exchange for not getting to be extra effective either. A relatively versatile element, I guess?

    1. and that also leads to them going berserk absolutely since the mc said that living beings need all 6 elements to live sanely and for their body to function correctly.

      This also brings the possibility of monsters actually having been made into what they now are by accident by the other 5 gods because they weren’t able to put the Dark element in those monsters. Thus meaning that those monsters would be mutated beings due to extreme elemental imbalance(the utter lack of an entire element).

      In such a case, they would still have the other five elements, and would be categorized according to their strongest element(but would still have the last 4 elements).

      However, there’s also the possibility that they are even more mutated than what I mentioned above, with them instead each having almost or only one single element each. In this case, I see two main reasons, 1- they were failed creations of living beings by individual gods after the sealing of the Dark god, or 2- they were simply made to be monsters of specific elements.

      1. Hmm…Two points to mention to this theory then.

        Firstly, that implies that the gods were/are actively trying to create something during Entropy’s absence. Because Darkness as an element should still exist in the world as a whole, natural unintentional formations of monsters should be relatively balanced, much like humans.

        Secondly, this idea implies that even humans can mutate due to elemental imbalance. This would be a bit of a problem, considering that Haine himself apparently has 000 in all elements but Darkness, which is presumably absurdly high on top of that. This would make Haine himself as unbalanced as it gets, and his body should show some sign of instability at least.

        1. Fair enough.
          (As for Hain having an elemental unbalance, from the way he mentioned it, to me it felt that it didn’t affect him because the soul in his body is that of a god and thus an exception to the rule.)

  13. Hey, ‘And after not a long period of time, I find an old woman and a small girl leaning on the trunk of a tree. It is probably a grandmother and her daughter.’

    Now is that a legal loli or just a careless mistake?

  14. Ok, considering that the names of the gods is based on the main forces of the universe, let’s evaluate what each element is about in plus of the fantasy aspects.
    Dark(Entropy)(darkness + dark matter and dark energy, thus gravitational poles/forces/energy/etc. However, the use of the name “Entropy” seem to imply that it should have something to do with the chaotic and random nature of the universe. also control over many aspects of physics.

    Earth(Mantle)(earth + planetary surface and all the stuff related to that. plus asteroids and many more.

    Water(Coacervate)(water + possibly plant life and control of nature related to that. The name of the god refers to the origin or organic life. This god’s power should also have access to healing(which somehow hasn’t been connected to Light yet, so I think this is the field of the water god only)

    Fire(Nova)(fire + anything having to do with the generation of heat, with the cap of power output being extremely high.(i.e supernovas)

    Wind(Quasar)(wind + control over radiation, electromagnetic pulse, electricity, as well as over the eletromagnetic spectrum,

    Light(Inflation)(divine light+ the always expending all encompassing multi-directional light, the light goddess probably had the role of the expension of the universe. However, I don’t have any idea how the cosmological aspect of Inflation would have anything to do with magic, so it probably is the most Fantasy-like magic element used in this story, with the divine light stuff that maybe can affect or cut through the molecular level when the user is very strong. That’s my best bet. (oh, and possible also disintegration)

    Considering that the Six Gods are all based on very important elements of the universe, I believe it also shows as to which gods are more powerful.
    I believe that the two overall weakest gods are the Water and Earth gods, though that would only be the case in battles between gods. After all, when it comes to their powers, even when used by humans, they would be VERY powerful in context of it being used around and against living beings on a planet. From that point of view, in a battle of mortals, they aren’t weaker per se, but in a battle of cosmic scale they are undoubtedly the weakest two.

    Next, continuing from weakest to strongest, would be the Fire God, for that element’s limits are reached before that of the remaining ones when on a cosmic scale.

    So, Water at 6th place, Earth at 5th place, Fire at 4th place.
    Then, Wind would be at the 3rd place, for its name refers to something way beyond the limits of the Fire God on a cosmic scale.
    The Light Goddess would be 2nd place(though I personally also think that she could be considered as potentially equal to Wind god). The reason here would be because of it being the moving force of the expansion of the universe. However, it is also likely that that doesn’t just transcend to pure power, so she could be ranked lower.

    Finally, in 1st place would be the Dark God. His powers are about the most important elements in the universe. The very thing that makes the elements within the universe hold themselves together IN PLUS of Dark Energy being an important part of the continuous expansion of the universe. It also is required for most of the other elements to function correctly. A Nova is the result of a compression due not only to heat, but also due to star collapsing on its own weight, thus gravity having a role in it. For a planet’s Mantle to form, gravity is also required. Water is also affected by gravity(to the point where just the position of the Moon affects water bodies greatly). A Quasar in very simplified terms is a gigantic electromagnitc field in the form of disc around a supermassive black hole(which would fall under the Dark God too). To top it all off, for the Inflation of the universe to even function properly, Dark Energy and Entropy are required. Once it reaches a point where Entropy stop, that it to say when the dark energy stop being enough for making physics and the expansion function, then the Inflation will stop, and the universe will arrive at a state called the Heat Death of the universe.

    The Dark God’s element is required for the universe to function more so than that of any of the other gods, for all of its parts. That is why I believe that the Dark God is the strongest god and why the other gods didn’t just face him with 4 of them, but also had the Light Goddess join them(probably convincing her that he would ignore her completely in favor of humanity).

    1. Also, the big comment I made is under moderation because I made it too long instead of in separate comments, could a moderator or Reigokai moderate my comment for it to be seen by others? I’ve put a lot of work in that comment and I would feel a bit disappointed if no one saw it.

    2. You got on the point with darkness and all being the superior element. Well it not surprising that everything begins from nothing and from that nothing is darkness. When light came creation begins and expand but the darkness still the one hold the entirety of the Universe. Even scientist today that the Universe is being hold and managed by an unknown force called Dark Matter that correspond in shaping the clusters, nebulae, galaxies, gravity and black holes. Without darkness there’s no light and without light there’s no darkness.
      Sometimes even this fantasy setting and in our world from the ancient time, people tend to forget about the importance of darkness and more likely sullied it as a notion of fear and evil even though its effect created balance and wonders that no one imagined.

  15. More info on the existence called “Hero”
    & the appearance of what is likely the 2nd love interest.
    While MC has shown worst signs of love density.
    But good job bitch slapping Red’s arrogance while trying to improve relationship between the two Heroines.
    Thanks for the chapter

    1. He’s not dense he’s the God of Darkness that loves human and obsessed with their culture. He’s not yet slapping into himself to love thing but more like a sensei kind of thing…

  16. monsters appear (likely not being born) with the sole purpose of attacking human and disappear after being defeated.. looks like the gods want to give human a common enemy and to strengthen their faith.
    that’s why they don’t like it when technology advanced. At least that’s how I see it.

    Also, “by leaps and bounds”? the way fire hero talks (or the way you translate it :p) sounds like a CN character lol, complete with the arrogance.
