Chapter 281: A fight to wrap up the fight

TL: I want to give a piece of advice here for future’s sake.

There have been people hurrying me to release Tsuki ga Michi chapters because the author has already posted 2 chapters and I haven’t translated any of those yet.
Not only were they hurrying me, some were even posted in the World Reformation comment section.

Let me be perfectly clear here, that only has the complete opposite effect.

The more you do that, the less motivated you will get the person. I am pretty sure this advice applies to all translators, so keep it in mind.

I appreciate the people that post comments notifying me about new chapters being posted, but stop it with the ‘281 WHEN’ and ‘There’s already chapter 282 out. When are you going to translate them?!’ comments.

I am just saying this to make one thing clear.

The next scheduled chapter will also be a Tsuki ga Michi chapter, BUT it will not be because I am accommodating to those people. I personally want to know what happens next.

Sorry for souring the mood there, but it had to be said.

Please enjoy the chapter! 🙂

Why did this happen?

By interfering with the cognition of the body and mind of everyone, the fight was being directed little by little to an advantageous one, and we removed the one that’s the main reason for this battle.

The [Fifth Hamlet Mist] of Tomoe that can realize the desires the person wants to see, and the black thread of Mio that can connect the magic power and senses of others.

We casted such large scale magic with us three, applied a stealth effect on it, and continued maintaining its activation.

The impression I have after trying it is that…it is surprisingly tiring.

I distributed magic power to Tomoe and Mio and strengthened them, and in exchange for them controlling the magic, I am the one that’s fueling most of the magic power it requires.

How do I explain it so it is easier to understand.

For example; it is like bringing things to another person’s house and trying to stealthily set those things inside it. Moreover, that house has quite the amount of security cameras, and has a mechanism that reacts when moving bodies are perceived.

…Was it that difficult to accomplish?

Yeah, it was as difficult as the example given.

In the end, all three of us participated in battle.

I fought against Hitsuna-san and the Marikosans.

The Marikosans are seriously dangerous. An attack that puts you inside a wall? That’s way too deadly.

Being caught in a spell that the usual me would have been able to deflect if it were outside this dungeon, I had fallen into panic.

Hitsuna-san was using strong spells that clearly surpassed her own magic power and was smashing them against me. Moreover, not only was it powerful, her sense and ability was top notch.

That talisman magic felt like, in exchange of a short aria, it costs quite a lot of magic power.

The fighting style of utilizing talisman magic in important points or utilize it simultaneously was clearly superior to that of the other mage that utilizes talisman magic as well, Mokuren. <the demon general>

The talisman magic at the demon territory was the mass produced type.

The ones Hitsuna-san utilized were not activated with talismans but pages, and the power, cost, magic power, and effects were different in a lot of different ways.

In other words, an original.

I see, I gotta say, I really did portray their monstrousness properly.

There’s no way the magic of hers and her skills were inherited just as they are, on the contrary, the talisman magic that remains in Lorel has been made to be more practical.

I glance to the side and I see Tomoe looking at me.

Her opponents were Haku Mokuren-san and Ginebia-san.

These two were probably thinking about stalling Tomoe by themselves, but in the end, they received a weakened version of the [Fifth Hamlet Mist] and are now inside their dreams.

They fought a long battle with Tomoe, moreover, managed to damage Tomoe a number of times.

There’s no one in Asora who can achieve that…with only two people.

Aside from Mio, Shiki, Tamaki, and I, the only ones who have been able to achieve a proper hit on Tomoe have been the transcendent team combination of three counting Serwhale; the four Arkes fighting together; or a team that has five people or more.

Tomoe also learns in those instances, so, lately, she has been starting to manage the group of three people where Serwhale-san is part of.

In that sense, the team of Arkes is the one who shows the highest evaluation average.

Within my followers, Tomoe and Tamaki are the ones who the closer you manage to get them serious, the more they stress in evasion. Tomoe with magic, and Tamaki with super-fast physical evasion.

In Mio’s case, her attacks get steadily vicious; she begins to add traps into her attacks. The irregular attack type.

With Shiki, it depends on his rings, but instead of his mobility getting higher, he is more the fortress type that smashes the opponent with consistent barriers and attacks. He can be called an all-rounder type that can deal against close combatants and mages, but he is currently more of a jack of all trades and master of none.

At any rate, to be able to deal damage to this Tomoe, who ‘attacks don’t hit’ while coping with her illusion magic, for several tens of minutes is something worthy of admiration.

Let’s have Tomoe show me her fight later for future reference.

At the side of Tomoe there’s Mio who has the eyes of someone that had crawl from the depths of hell and, with those eyes, she was looking at the still paralyzed Rokuya-san.

It was a scary truth, but Rokuya-san seriously managed to shut out Mio.

He couldn’t provide assistance on the other battlefields as he first planned, but…he accomplished that against that Mio…alone.

No seriously, that’s unbelievable.

No matter what tricks he pulled, if he was able to accurately pinpoint the weakness of Mio and the compatibility in this short amount of time we met, that in itself is impressive.

If we were to compare purely on attack and defense, he shouldn’t be able to pin down Mio.

This is not about being a Wise or whatever, I think that Rokuya-san himself is impressive. Yeah.

That gear restraining barrier is something I have never seen before and it is certainly strong, but Mio should be able to break something of that level.

It was a gamble huh… against that Mio.

Well, that’s how it is. Our own plan wasn’t proceeding as smoothly either.

Even so, when their trump card, Aznoval-san, arrived to the battlefield, our number one most important plan had succeeded.

“…That’s why I said. There won’t always be a convenient method to calm things down perfectly. I would say creating one is the hardest part.” (Aznoval)

Aznoval-san, who is standing at my front with great sword in hand, says this with a wry smile as if admonishing me.

At our surroundings, there’s us the Kuzunoha Company, Picnic Rosegarden, and the Adventurers of Origin; all assembled in one place.

Aznoval-san and I are the only ones right in the middle.

But even if that sword looks exactly like Masamune, that size makes me question if it can even be categorized as a weapon.  

In terms of weapon, this one looks like the joke kind.

Can you really fight with that?

“Wouldn’t you normally think that once something is done about the hatred of Pione-san, things would go better?” (Makoto)

Because this is the biggest wall between us.

The hatred this girl, that is a part of the mercenary group, is directing at me, Raidou.

It is certainly a difficult matter.

But if we manage to remove this part, we would be able to somehow talk it out and proceed with the negotiations.

I myself had the resolve to accept the title of Wise if necessary.

And yet…

“The way you did it was bad. Not being able to extend your hand in the times when your comrades are suffering is painful. Also the fact that, even in this overwhelmingly advantageous scenario, we couldn’t defeat a single one on your side and one-sidedly suffered.” (Aznoval)

“…No matter the case, I don’t want to lose any of my comrades either. Please don’t ask for the impossible.” (Makoto)

“…And you don’t want them to get hurt either.” (Aznoval)

“Yeah.” (Makoto)

“That’s respectable. If you think that way, it might not be too late yet.” (Aznoval)

For a moment, I saw pity in the eyes directed at me by the knight.


“What did you do…to Pione? In the battlefield where her comrades were fighting, she suddenly collapsed, and declared the end of the battle. She also apologized to you guys. Yeah, really suddenly.” (Aznoval)


“Tears from her eyes and mucus from her nose; from her mouth, there were remains of vomit. Her clothes were lightly wiped, but it was still quite dirtied. It was definitely not the state of someone fighting.” (Aznoval)

Speaking all of this plainly, there was silent anger added into every word he said.

“I did explain it though.” (Makoto)

“You showed her an illusion via magic, was it?” (Aznoval)

“Yeah, I showed her the death of her comrades and of herself in the scenario where the battle continues because of her hatred. We transcribed our fighting force and battle techniques into the head of Pione-san, and with that information as the basis, it will compare that with the information she has of her own comrades and show her an illusion of the foreseeable annihilation.” (Makoto)

“…And repeats it…infinitely.” (Aznoval)

“Until the moment she wishes the end of this battle from the bottom of her heart. It is not infinitely.” (Makoto)

It seems like Pione-san truly hates me for killing her friends in that unfortunate twist of fate.

That’s why, I wanted her to learn that if she continued holding that killing intent and hatred, this will only end up spreading even more and lead to the death of those precious people of hers.

The other precious people she has.

Our power level compared to their power level.

With the premise of us actually killing each other, everyone aside from the immortal Adventurers of Origin would die.

Of course, we wouldn’t do that for real. We wouldn’t be able to gain their cooperation if we did that.

That’s why we only did it inside that illusion, only in the head of Pione-san, and showed it in a way that’s no different from reality and repeated it.

For the sake of her choosing to have a talk instead of fighting.

“It is not only that. You made it so not only Picnic Rosegarden, even Takane-kun wouldn’t be able to notice that abnormality in her.” (Aznoval)

“Of course. If you had noticed it, you would have dispelled it before she understands after all.” (Makoto)

“That was also illusion magic huh. Also, shared senses and perception, was it?” (Aznoval)

“That’s right. The instant we entered this floor, we changed a part of the senses of sight, touch, and perception from all the people here. Putting it in detail, it was to have them see it as if Pione-san continued providing support from the backlines and was fighting alongside them even if she were to suddenly faint in place. Also, this would be a fight where we are outnumbered, so we had their body perceive the healing magic and support magic they receive as if it was only showing ⅓ of its efficiency. Well, there were some other small things we did as well, but the big ones are those.” (Makoto)

“There was also one that obstructed the people that tried to enter this floor.” (Aznoval)

“Ah, yeah. That was mostly to avoid having other people accidentally coming here and end up dragged in it.” (Makoto)

That’s right.

In the end, it seems this proved useful as well, delaying the arrival of Aznoval-san by a lot.

Pione-san persisted quite a lot. Even when she was continuously shown the death of her comrades, she didn’t throw away her hatred, and the fight was prolonged more than expected.

Thanks to that, Shii was forced to use her Forest Oni drug in order to endure, and Hokuto had to use the yarn that he only uses when he is serious.

Beren told me that he also used a number of Blast Spears that had my rings embedded in them.

That’s way too far.

Even with that, Shii was inflicted with a status ailment from an assassin team called Ryuma or Ryoma and was feeling lightheaded.

The healing made it in time and she has already calmed down though.

“…And so, this leads to the ceasefire of Pione and her apology. Raidou-kun, it is true that with this, the hatred Pione-san has towards you guys is gone. But in exchange, it looks like not only will this affect her activity in the mercenary group, it will even affect her daily life.” (Aznoval)

“Of course, if you wish for it, we can provide her nursing.” (Makoto)

“What’s clear right now is that Picnic Rosegarden had the heart of one of their comrades turn into pieces right in front of their eyes.” (Aznoval)


But we didn’t kill anyone, and even if it won’t show effects immediately, we can properly nurse her back.

That’s what I have been telling them.

“On top of that, even with the help of the Adventurers of Origin, they were unable to defeat a single one of the enemies that did this. It is true that there were no lives taken, but you guys achieved your objective and broke Pione. In other words, our 0 to your 100. We totally couldn’t vent anything out.” (Aznoval)

Well, even if you tell me you couldn’t vent anything out…

If this were a contest, there’s the option of a rematch, but this was a serious fight, so even if it was a regrettable defeat or a total defeat, shouldn’t you accept it?

…No, it is exactly because it was a serious fight that it leaves grudges which is troublesome.

That means…even when we have entered negotiations, they won’t be having a proper negotiation with me even if I accept the title of Wise?

T-That would trouble me.

We went through the pain of coming to Lorel, went all the way to this underground labyrinth, tired ourselves, and used our heads; but even with that, it wasn’t enough, you say?

…Give me a break already.

In terms of fighting force, they are perfectly fit for Tsige.

Even for people on the level of Toa-san’s group, there’s plenty enough things they can learn from this mercenary group.

They are truly the perfect fit without doubt, in other words, it is a jackpot!

I would really like to dispatch them.

With this Pione-san girl as the centre, the other members of the mercenary group had their spears pointed at us and they are currently directed at me, creating emotions that are incredibly unwelcomed for us.

“And so, Aznoval-san, why are you pointing your sword at me?” (Makoto)

“If I had to put it bluntly, to vent.” (Aznoval)

“Vent…” (Makoto)

How great.

“I personally want Picnic Rosegarden to have a good relationship with your Kuzunoha Company. I have a personal debt with you guys after all.” (Aznoval)


“Ah, forget about that. Anyways, Rokuya and the others already know the strength of Tomoe-san, Mio-san, and you. But the mercenary group hasn’t seen the true strength of the main cast here, right?” (Aznoval)

“…Well, yeah.” (Makoto)

“In that case, if we were to show a fight between me, who has been acknowledged here as a person with decent individual ability, and you, the representative of the company, they would be able to digest a variety of things.” (Aznoval)

“Have them accept it by showing them our fight huh.” (Makoto)

I don’t understand it well.

In the first place, even if Beren’s group was weakened, they were still able to fight on even grounds against them, so they should be able to somewhat gauge my strength.

Can’t they acknowledge it unless they see it with their own eyes?

Or is there any other reason why?

Is something like this really going to accomplish anything?

“The fight will end when either side admits defeat. With this kind of fight, we will show our full-power and let it be water-under-the-bridge no matter who wins.” (Aznoval)

“Okay?” (Makoto)

Is this really going to be resolved with such a haphazard method?

Then what was the point of the plan I struggled my best to make…

“The Adventurers of Origin, Makado Takane, and also Picnic Rosegarden, have accepted this. What’s left is…whether the Kuzunoha Company -no, Raidou-kun accepts or not.” (Aznoval)

‘Or more like, they wouldn’t accept it if this were to end without me fighting. I would be blamed by everyone if that were to happen’, is what I heard from Aznoval-san as he muttered this with his eyes turned away.

…He does look as if he is playing dumb, but it is also true that he has shown me an easy to understand method to resolve this.

I don’t know what circumstances Aznoval-san has at all, but I don’t feel any hostility from him.

Maybe he doesn’t have that much deep of a relation with Pione; he looks like the most composed one here.

And yet, I can feel no hesitation from the sword that’s pointed at me.

Rokuya-san told us before that as long as we manage to wrap this battle in a safe manner, he would be our ally in the negotiation.

In that case, it is fine to just fight this person and show the mercenary group my power.

Hitsuna-san already understands it, and the other three Adventurers of Origin seem to have acknowledged it as well.

There’s no problem in having one more fight.


“…Got it. Then, let’s go at it with our full-power.” (Makoto)

“Sorry about that. It is slightly painful that I have to clash blades against you who protected the descendants of the Hiiragi household. Let’s make it flashy and show our best. On a level that would blow away all the troublesome grudges and make us all laugh.” (Aznoval)

Hiiragi household?

It looks like we have some sort of connection that is completely unrelated to the labyrinth or the mercenary group.

A mysterious knight that acts cordially, and yet, also hit me with the most bloodthirst and pressure I have felt today.

His peculiar greatsword and his silver full-body armor.

With his large frame coupled with this equipment, he looks even bigger.

But the incredibly problematic large scale spell that was weakening us is already gone, and my strength has already returned.

I can also utilize my magic power as I please now.

Once I call for Azusa, it was soon in my hand.

It can also be said that I am in perfect condition.

Because I switched [Sakai] to strengthening, the Magic Armor that was covering my body is now visible.

My preparations here are done as well.

“Then, Rokuya…still can’t talk properly huh. Takane-kun, please give the begin signal.” (Aznoval)

Being called, a man wearing a long white robe stood to the front.

Ah, this person is Makado Takane.

The labyrinth’s designer.

“…Raidou-shi, are you ready?” (Takane)

“Ah, yes. Go ahead.” (Makoto)

His peculiar atmosphere reminds me of my high-school friends.

In regards to PCs, those two helped me out a lot.

I remembered the faces of my truly nostalgic friends, but time won’t wait for nostalgia.

“Then…begin!” (Takane)

Takane-kun, who was assigned to signal the beginning of the battle, confirmed if I was prepared, and gave his signal to begin.

As this occurred, I prayed that the thorny gaze being poured at me from the surroundings will lessen by the time this battle ends… and so, I focus straight on Aznoval-san.

  1. Ignore those damn rushers you doing good work.

    Also this chapter MAN just goes to show something in Makoto’s head is slowly cracking open tho question is what but then again he has been somewhat apathetic towards certain things. I have seen both sides of the argument to the mind breaking Pione thing with both and against and I kind of have to agree with Makoto having to employ such a method but he kind of executed it improperly within negotiations. Let’s face it Pione had too much hatred against Makoto for her to simply just accept a simple ass kicking properly or being shown the memory of her former friend’s states that tried to assassinate Makoto or something else flowery. The fact that when she was under the illusion and that it went on for so long when it showed the consequences of her said actions just shows that said former methods would unlikely work. Although allow me to be blunt on saying that Makoto kind of sounds like extreme asshole when he tried to offer nursing her back to health in a somewhat unsympathetic manner when made her that way in the first place and further more I believe he doesn’t like these sort of methods though granted with Rembrandt’s case could be entirely different and was different circumstances.

    However I am really just blaming Makoto for being somewhat of an asshole about it here but lets be fucking honest it was Pione’s, PRG, and the Origin adventurer’s fault this happened if not most of it. I certainly understand being pissed at the Makoto for killing Pione’s friends but throwing logic and reasoning out the window when the dude wanted to explain what happened and wanted some help is extremely fucking stupid. Hell it is shown this chapter that these guys had no idea of Makoto’s true abilities but still got pissed at the man for killing Pione’s friends when they attacked him under the mind control influence from trashmoki.
    It is the entirely wrong damn target that they are pissed at here and they are just trying to kill another victim of this accident. Hell Makoto comes up
    to talk things out to only be told that PRG has a fucking murder boner for them and to come back in maybe hundred years or so. Then you get the adventurers of origin’s supporting dumb ass behavior they don’t believe is logical because they know the situation that happened but support BS under the pretense of things will be interesting and then says “FITE ME if you MAYBE want to talk things out”. Yeah I don’t think the PRG or Adventurer of Origins deserve much of a goddamn sympathy card when they fucked up by letting assassin girls escape and then said assassins end up dead by Makoto because they were under the influence and PRG throws a goddamn hissy fit and try to murder the dude.You know what would of been a better idea that involved possibly less negative consequences? TALKING THINGS OUT LIKE PEOPLE WITH A FUCKING BRAIN! Hell even if Makoto were to avoid contacting the PRG at this time I wouldn’t doubt for a second the PRG would then try to hunt Makoto with the help of adventurer’s of Origin to try to deal damage back at him. Best to get the shit out of the way when it pops up.

    2. Whoaa! It’s Shad from Shadiversity! Or is it? Anyway I have to agree with everything you said. If PRG and especially Pione want Makoto dead so bad, they should have accompanied the 3 assassins on their mission. Why didn’t they do that? Because the assassins sneaked out on their own without informing Pione or anybody else in PRG? Is that Makoto’s fault? To Hell with it!


      1. @Matti Nope not the same Shad mate. In fact I now realize I am using his name(Will probably name change it later as he a good content creator). Also yea this entire Arc so far has kind of had me pissed. To a degree I am mad at Makoto in how solved the situation and could of be done it in a better manner or earlier he simply knocked out said brainwashed assassins and seeing if he could reverse the effects but I understand why he did those things and they weren’t completely unreasonable. I am more so pissed at the adventurer’s of origin blowing the situation up further when they understood said circumstances yet decided to give Makoto’s group a hard time still and tried to not even help defuse the situation. Then you get PRG’s group condoning the obviously illogical and childish behavior of a stubborn hard headed child of the group. I understand being close with a member of your group and all but throwing out talking out a situation that was obviously unintended by both parties is just stupid and the leader of the PRG group should fucking vacate his position. Granted we were not really shown much reasoning on the PRG side for doing such actions other than flowery shit saying they owed Pione or they love her or ETC.

    3. I couldn’t reply to your lower comment about seeing if he could turn them back so I’m replying here, he said it back before and it’s been explained in earlier chapters that they have been brainwashed for too long and it was impossible to help them, had he removed the charm their minds would break due to being confused on the situation, look at what happened to the bodyguard chick, she was controlled for a few hours and she was feeling completely sick, almost being unable to walk, imagine people who were charmed for years. everything else you said is pretty much the gist of the stupidity tho, I will say this for the origin folks, they have lived for hundreds of years so they are probably bored and felt like no matter what happened it would not completely affect them, the picnic guys tho… selfishness


      1. @randompasserby Yea I’ve seen the chapters and comments about the after effects being dispelled and to a point agree with your statement but still I can’t help be curious if you could cure someone under heavy dosage of charm for so many years. This is for both logical and moral reasons I feel he should of tried to at least dispel the effects and see if he could nurse the assassins back to a state of healthy mind considering the fact that a good part of the Empire is under trashmoki’s influence. Eventually Makoto is going to have to confront the goddess and Trashmoki but will he deem it necessary to essentially wipe the slate clean within the empire via magical nuking? While it could be argued they could be too far gone or variety of other reasons that it makes it necessary to kill them you have to admit this will take a serious mental toll on someone still. Hell I don’t think even Makoto whose quite apathetic towards killing threats to him would be agreeable for nuking nearly entire nation under the influence of Trashmoki.


      2. Actually…Now that I think about it…

        What’s the difference between trying to nurse the brainwashed women back to mental health after that trauma and having to nurse Pione back to mental health after this trauma?

        I mean, firstly, Makoto didn’t know and, secondly, this one is probably the easier of the two to treat. But my point is that they’re comparable.

        Liked by 3 people

      3. @Psychronia Well firstly the big difference between the assassins and Pione is that they were under a different type of mental attack. The assassins were pretty much charmed/brainwashed into doing everything what Trashmoki said and probably had some things done to them by Trashmoki that makes him Trashmoki for a reason. Thus could be said that the mental trauma is hugely greater if you consider that these people whilst not in control of their body probably did commit morally unjustifiable acts and are probably more suicidal. It is thus argued by people that once the effects are dispelled it goes either 1. The brainwashing was too deep and it is irreversible and the cure is death or 2. the people become extremely disgusted and somewhat affected deeply by the charm that it seriously take a mental toll on them in which I argue it depends on how long they are under said brainwashing and we do have evidence of 2nd example happening from earlier chapters. Thus I am curious if long term brainwashed people could be rehabilitated.

        In the case of Pione she was just merely shown an illusion where Makoto and Pione’s forces were to go at it full force and the consequences of her actions if she decided to further pursue her actions of hatred any further in which to put it bluntly PRG would be fucking ass raped and this was merely looped constantly till she apologized. Obviously this just broke her complete will to fight against Makoto and has taken a serious mental toll on her. However at best the negative effects could be depression and a deep rooted fear of Makoto for a certain amount of time and is much more treatable. It is not like she saw the dark elder god yet that lurks inside Makoto so she is perfect safe for now…..I think…..

      1. That’s why we associate ourselves with nature. Things like spirit animals, zodiac and stuff like that… we’re just lying to ourself that we are one with nature. All the while destroying the earth… such irony.


  2. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    Negotiation doesn’t always mean getting the other side to like you. Making people realize that they would be destroyed if they don’t comply and surrender is also a form of negotiation.

    Liked by 3 people

    1. Well… i kinda agree and not agree with this remark. In this case, it might be true because that Pione girl is just too hard head to be reasonable with, plus she is the one in the wrong. Furthemore, she’s the leader so showing the true power to the girl ONLY is more effective to stop the unreasonable fight. But it’s not the case toward all the other members. Because if done so – as in doing what Makoto did to Pione towards other members – it’ll only give opposite effect coz they are not the same individual thus cognitive recognition towards what is shown will be different individually.

      If we apply this method in reality, it just shown others that we are a tyranical dictators. Which mean, we are not the one that can be reasonable with. Say in the case after we have shown every other possibilities of “Making people realize that they would be destroyed if they don’t comply and surrender” and they really understood the implication of the action if they still defies; what are we going to do then? Annihilate them? This just shows how much of a tyranical bastard we are and our credibility to obtain trust from others just plummeted drastically.

      Well, even so i can’t really says the method is wrong; but i can’t says it’s right either.


      1. Well, dying is also a choice.
        Personally I see it as negotiating a surrender. They attack first just because Makoto defended himself and the people around him when he killed that brainwashed group. It’s like saying Makoto has no right to defend himself. Now they lost. They are a losing side of a war that they started. Maybe it’s because of the story’s POV, but I got no sympathy for them. They can either surrender or die. But Makoto’s situation is complicated by him needing them. Which give them a negotiation card if they know how to use it. Instead, they keep on wanting to fight him. That makes me dislike them more.

You were very clear about your translation schedule so they have no rights to complain. Thanks for the hard work as usual, and damn look at how much Makoto has changed from the naïve high-school kid he was at the beginning. He has matured and is now trying his best to accomplish his role as a leader of company and a community.

  7. Regokai, thank you a lot for the chapter, and if I haven’t said it before thank you so mutch for the effort that you put on your translation. Now as mutch as I like Tsuki, I am willing to wait for your schadule, no one else should have a say in that matter, unless they are the ones providing you with the material for the translation (Author) or are your editors. If you are releasing the next one because you want to, then great but if you putted a schadule then we leechers have to depend on it, not put on nonesensical complaints because the author realesed a chapter. In essence what I am trying to sai is that screw the one so desperate to see the next chapter if they want, they can do like anyother that can’t wait for a translation and google translate on machine. Well now that my rant is over, time to comment on the chapter, I don’t know if congratulate Makoto on his tactic or feel scared by his rutlessness, I mean we have hear rumors of it (by his students) but that trap was viscious, and that Pione girl really does know how to hold a grudge how manny times did she had to witness the massacre of her companions to give up the hate??? And what a hellish trap Kuzonoha team prepared I mean they messed up the sense of the other party without them noticing that their sense have been tempered with and the illusion they have been inmersed on. Hope Makotot crush Aznoval now that he is not weakned and the other party gives up on their resentment.

    1. Makoto just did what Itachi did on Kabuto in Naruto. The Izanagi. Even so, I think what Makoto had done are totally the best way to handle the situation without killing.
      Some people just can’t be reasoned with words so… yea, that technique seems legit to me.


  8. Hey Pikli, are you still online?
    Wanna thank you for that link to FGO Eng. ver.
    I installed it 2 days ago.

    … still can’t figure out how to play the game correctly but got over 20 lvls.


      1. Pikli suggested me to use QooApp to find and install it.

        I couldn’t find the game in android store before and when I did, I can’t play in my country.

        Need a little bit of research, my friend.
        I’m so glad that Tamamo became my first rare servant. Without her I’d lost a lot.


      2. Also, I can’t send people to isekai anymore…
        Not the convensional ‘truck accident’ method. Now I need to… eat and digest them for the chosen hero to reincarnate.

    But no… the adventurer origin are like hell no we don’t except explanation. you hurt my friends you die.
    I was like hey … what’s with this bunch of brainless people?
    or they are just too long in power that they don’t have the sense of there are still someone higher than them even if they can’t die.

  12. A full power they say? I bet Makoto will not remove all his Seal’s and Limiter Linchpins (Tomoe, Mio, Shiki and Tamaki). The limiter is like a a very strong seal to seal the overwhelming power Makoto has while the seal’s are sealing is excess aura and those are his Clothes, and all His Accessories as of now i only know 10 rings so far not only that if he even try to remove it I bet the City of Lorel and the Dungeon will be annihilate and worst case erase on map.


  13. Thanks for the chapter though he dies seem a bit unfazed by all thus which is very disconcerting i gotta say im with makoto on this. None of this us any fault of his own Pione shouldve known to keep a better eye on her friends especially when they’re high lvl assassin’s.


  14. Pione got mindbreak ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Full power? I can only remember him being near or at full power when he saved the Demon capital from Root (or when he fought the Divine Gate), though after that he’s been training where Tomoe and the others have their hair growing long temporarily.

    Thanks for the translation Reigo-dono. We absolutely appreciate your work so just take your time and go at your own pace in doing the translation. You have our respect in every aspect Reigo-dono.

  18. Hello everyone, my net name is trueslasher(I know you’ll see it once you look at my post regardless, but I didn’t feel right without saying it in my introduction xD). I’m new to this community, and as people who all enjoy this lovely novel, and appreciate Reigokai incredibly for translating it, I hope to get along with all of you.

    To be honest, I’m usually one of the last people to ever post in a comment section, but I felt it was necessary here. Even if it was only one more, I wanted to let Reigokai know that there’s at least one more person who appreciates what they do. This is the first Japanese novel that I’ve ever read, and my only regret is that it’s so good that I find myself unable to read anything else while waiting for the chapters.

      2. Hmm…I honestly don’t remember what my first WN was. The first in-depth following was probably Shield Hero, but I feel like I might’ve been reading one of the crappy wish-fulfilment harem fantasies.

        Either way, I wasn’t interested for very long and didn’t really jump into it until much later.


      3. Oh yeah… Shield hero… I… is shield hero my first wn? Dang I can’t remember! Damn you memories! Seriously though… I forgot which one is first… I remember getting hooked on shield hero amd shed some manly tears when Atlas(?) died…

      6. …Wolf? Was there a wolf?

        I’m talking about the character whose appearance marked Naofumi’s reputation turning around and good karma coming back to him in general.


      7. The LN is better since Glass, other characters in the series WN have more involvement in the LN then they did the WN and new characters appear. And just recently I just read vol 8 had the MC go to a place that is part of his trial of returning back to the Magical world that at the end of the WN series.

And they tone it down with medieval cruelty such as the torture such as having Trash instead of not poisoning MC and eating the food that not happen in the LN, but the queen frozen him up to his head for the cruelty he has done to the MC and turning a blind eye to the churches actions which mess up the country.

Something like in Zootopia when the mob boss says to ice them (MC’s) he wanted them to be thrown in frozen water. And if people read the entire WN would know what he is like once he starts to redeem himself during that fake reborn hero appears and after his wife dies, he is kind of a masochist. With the food poison it makes me remember when I was food poison during boy scouts camp and I had to set home and pretty much every boy at the camp got food poison.

      I think they took down the web novel from the original site. I know they’re translating the light novel but it’s still ongoing I think. Luckily for you though, I have the complete translated web novel. So if you need it just let me know. One of the few novels I liked so much I just had to save!!! Rafu~~~~

  20. BOOOO for stupid rushers!!!!

    YAYYY for a new chapter!

    BTW it really shows that it’s a jap novel, if an european or american were in Makoto’s place, I’m sure we would have screamed “Hypocrites!!!!”. I mean the guy comes as a merchant representing a whole city for a contract, the other idiots attack him with killing intent and he defends himself with non-lethal actions. Then a bigger prick shows up forcing his hand BECAUSE HE WANTS TO VENT?!
    This is the part where a normal non-jap says F#CK YOU!! If they want to vent, go fix Trashmoki instead of bothering Makoto…
    Man, these authors really know how to rile up a reader…


    1. that’s not hypocrisy though
      he already explained his actions:
      -“Was the reason for pointing my sword at you also accounted in it? Even if you resolve this ‘core reason’ you speak of, reasons to continue the battle will be born in the middle of the battle. And as proof of this, here I am, pointing my sword at you for hurting my family. Without knowing the basis of all this fighting.”
      -‘Or more like, they wouldn’t accept it if this were to end without me fighting. I would be blamed by everyone if that were to happen’

      whereas makoto showed so much disgust about tomoki’s and hibiki’s mind control, and about Root’s brainwashing of sofia, but yet he now just mind-broke and brain-washed someone to fit the result he wanted.

      But yeah, I agree that we, white people, tend to trow words we don’t master as an insult to feel smarter.

      1. Where did you read about Makoto “brainwashing” Pione? He only showed her a loop of what would happen if it was a battle to the death.

        It was all up to Pione to release herself from the loop, since her hatred was misplaced (Yes, because it’s Tomoki’s fault), it was only right that Makoto got rid of it. Honestly, if she valued the lives of her comrades, she should’ve stopped it a long time ago. It’s her own fault for going that far.

        Tomoki and Hibiki’s charm and charisma totally changes a person’s personality and robs them of their own free will, while Makoto hasn’t done something like that and even offered to heal her afterwards.

  21. thanks for the chapter!

    I wonder about the morality of the illusion like ‘izanami’ in naruto
    It look like brain-washing to me. not the magic thing with the heroes, but the good old one:
    torture until mind break, and rewrite the part like you wish.
    by that illusion, Pione can either face eternal pain, or break and bend to makoto’s will.

    So, it bring me to my real question: Since Makoto always looked disgusted by this kind thing, do you think the last conversation with Root about Sofia influenced the use of that tactic?

    Liked by 1 person

    1. You’re totally forcing the whole brainwashing thing in there, aren’t you?

      All Makoto did was show her what they were capable of. It was her own fault for going that far. If she had any common sense or if she valued the lives of her friends, she would’ve given up at the beginning and she wouldn’t have suffered like that.

      He should do something like that to Hibiki and Hibiki, since their the same as Pione. Despite going against a force they can’t beat, they still keep opposing Makoto and causing unnecessary conflicts.


      1. ‘Brainwashing (also known as mind control, menticide, coercive persuasion, thought control, thought reform, and re-education) is the concept that the human mind can be altered or controlled by certain psychological techniques. Brainwashing is said to reduce its subject’s ability to think critically or independently,[1] to allow the introduction of new, unwanted thoughts and ideas into the subject’s mind,[2] as well as to change their attitudes, values, and beliefs.’

        He mentally tortured her until her mind break, and that “Until the moment she wishes the end of this battle from the bottom of her heart.”
        basically rewriting her own will and forcing his own will by torturing her, knowing everybody will break at one point, it was only a matter of time before she become what makoto wanted.
        It is brainwashing in my book.

        ‘it was up to pione to release the loop’
        ‘It’s her own fault’
        ‘they still keep opposing Makoto’
        This is just BS justifications, the reason doesn’t change what makoto did,
        but seriously you either do what I want or die by my hands isn’t a choose or free will, it tyranny.

        ‘offered to heal her afterwards’
        let me break all your fingers and pay the medical bill. you should thank me for that

        coming back to my actual comment what is shocked is makoto doing that after trowing a fit to root because of what he did to the adventurer and sofia.

Aaaa, this whole arc is sooo much vexing and stupid….. that adventures of origins and that merc group must be total brainless idiots who cant keep an eye on 3 people and after that mentioned 3 people escape from them (the most powerfull group of mercenaries and the group of transported humans that are basically origins of all powers there are in the level system of this world) and then tries to assasasinate someone and that someone defend himself, they are like “What are you doing to our friends!!! We will now kill you because you protected yourself from assasination!!! And we will leave the real culprit who brainwashed our friends alone because we felt like it and now your going to die!!!!!”….. like really Japan…. why does almost every Japanese novel author ends like this…. they have in their group a group of immortalls that should have a lot of experience so why they had to go for the most idiotic way…. i know it must be sad that they lost friends that had almost been saved from the brainwashing, but if they are that much important guard them better god damn it!! And the fact that everyone ignores Trashmoki is not much better….. like really, he is brainwashing like every women that he lays his eyes on, sooo pleaseeee AUTHOR-SAMA kill him already and make it please that his death will be the slow one where they leave him in some dark cave and isolate him there without food or anything and torture him, let some mamono to rape him than fix him back with magic and reapet this process for days, months and then years until his mind completely breaks. (And maybe let him in the middle when his mind is still not so much fu**** to let him escape just to capture him again and crush his all through of even escaping his miserable life) MUHAHAHAHAHAHAAH

    And BTW big thanks for translator for even translating this for us. If it wasnt for you we would had to wait for years until the LN would came out and then wait even longer when they came in english…. so you really deserve the biggest thanks!!!


    1. That’s kind of a slanted perspective on what just happened. Let’s break the situation down with an analogous scenario.

      1 – Some dude feeds your dog something that makes your dog start acting weird.
      2 – You’re talking to your vet about this when the dog jumps the fence and attacks a door to door salesman.
      3 – The salesman pulls out a hand-cannon and blows your dog’s brains out. Your dog is like a teacup poodle or something.
      4 – Salesman starts pitching retirement home communities and vinyl windows while your kid starts wailing in the background.
      5 – You tell the salesman to wait a minute while you deal with the traumatized kid currently wailing about their dead dog.
      6 – Salesman proceeds to break through your front door while pointing out all the awesome savings he’s offering.
      7 – You attack the salesman and he pistol-whips you and everyone else attempting to impede his awesome sales pitch.
      8 – Salesman proceeds to show the child images of her entire family dying repeatedly until she stops crying.

      … Okay that kind of fell apart at the end.

        3 – the CEO pulls out a gun and defends himself against the rabid rottweiler by killing it
        4 – the CEO then offers you a job and is even willing to forget about your rabid dog that almost killed him just a few seconds earlier
        5 – you tell the CEO to wait because your daughter is still traumatized
        6 – the CEO comes knocking anyway and your daughter runs out with a gun trying to kill the CEO
        7 – you decide to also pull out a gun and try to kill the CEO and the CEO just defends himself without hurting you

      2. I think there are few things to change:
        3- Makoto did ‘capture’ them, examined them, and decided they should be put down, and killed them.
        so it would be more something like
        ‘The CEO caught and bind the dog, and then will seeing he has rabies, he pull out a gun and put him down’
        but I still don’t really agree with that comparison because, will your are supposed to call professional service to take care of the rabid dog, I do not know a service that take care of ‘stray brainwashed assassin’

        7- ‘you decide to take a gun and say him to leave now, if he make a single step inside you kill him’

        8- ‘The CEO jump in with a gun in hand, beat your shit, and show the album of dead dog will threatening her to kill you if she doesn’t shut up’


      3. I lost it at 4- because I imagined him saying something like: when you will hear the advantages you can get, it will ‘blow your mind’!


      4. Just that the super dangerous dog is just a little chihuahua and the salaryman is not in any danger but he shoots him nevertheless because of ‘self-defense’.


    2. you do realize that even if the adventurer of origins can easily kill Tomoki they can’t do due to breaking the contract with the goddess which is doing something that would caught the attention of the world , Makoto is one thing since he is someone the goddess could care less

  30. So Makoto’s plan to remove the hard feelings of Pione’s comrades over the death of her friend was to show her a perfect simulation of the death of all her comrades, thus creating an unsustainable feedback loop of righteous fury that would inevitably be consumed in a despair fueled mental break, leaving her a shattered husk of her former self?

    . . . Seems legit.

        Sure, it’s sad she lost her friends, but from what I understand, she’s a leader of PRG and chose to let them die a bunch of times just because she got that emotional.

        Even if she’s a good leader and those impulses are usually a beneficial thing, I’m not sure how much I would trust her after that if I were a subordinate.

Since it is kind of odd like you say that she showed this much affection saving this 1 person even though she most likely had other people died under her.

  33. hmmm~ thanks for the work! I’ve been reading this LN (since\around?) 2 month ago and I have to say that it was very entertaining (will continue to do so tho). again THANKS and good luck with the next chapters following up. oh and hi, community of TMID (<~ is it alright to call it that way; the LN?)
    ps: my English is not perfect yet pls don't be so eager to judge.


  34. I’ll wait patiently for new chapters without whining, even after reading it all in a binge and wishing to avoid withdrawal symptoms, but… could you bring the index page up-to-date? It’s missing the last couple of chapters.

    Thanks for all your hard work!

      > Makoto’s is always wrong, his enemies are always justified.

      ^ That’s how you always view things.

      Especially when Hibiki’s involved. No matter who he faces and how bad his enemies’ action are, as long as Makoto shows a slight bad side to him, you’ll take the chance to completely antagonize his character.


      1. funny, but wrong since I already said makoto was right to kill the assassin, and PRG were wrong for wanting to kill makoto, as well as I did condemn hibiki a few times already.
        nice try, better luck next time.

    1. I disagree.

      Trashmoki is Charming pretty much everyone (at least, females – I don’t recall any textev that he’s tried it on any males other than Makoto) around him (and now that there’s the perfume, he’s casting his net wider) for his own personal benefit. Makoto gave *one person* a vision of the potential (probable?) outcome of their course of action (albeit in a loop, because she was initially not listening to anyone) to get her to call off a poorly-chosen battle (that she’d committed everyone to for emotional reasons) and save lives – the lives of people not even on his side. As soon as she called it off, the vision stopped, unlike the (apparently) permanent effects from Trashmoki’s Charm.

    2. I disagree.
      The adventurers mentality could be compared to Tomoki’s, they are especial and they should be able to do whatever they please but when someone stronger appears and beats them they have to “vent” like children throwing a tantrum, I hoped someone among them would actually be decent but they are about the same level as Tomoki.
      Aznoval looks a bit likeable but I’m not too sure.

      1. @redcolonel
        I never said that, Makoto has been presented as a gray-zone character a lot of times, like now.
        This conflict could have been resolved in a lot of ways but it’s obvious Makoto who lacks interpersonal relationship skills won’t pick the best choice.I am talking about the adventurers who are acting like children throwing a tantrum because they are not the strongest, Pione can get as angry as she wants but the other adventurers are trying to kill the victim only to cry when that victim defends himself.


      2. Mazen: Makoto’s plan is bad
        DB AV: I disagree. the adventurer are bad.

        the most logical way to me to read this is
        ‘the adventurer are bad therefore makoto’s plan isn’t.’

        but it look like you were talking about something else, my bad.

        btw did they cry?

  35. 282 WHEN?


    This is not to pressure the translator but to scream at the author for cutting the flow like that.


    1. In one way, it’s still the samepoint thing. Instead of pressuring the translator, you want to pressure the author as well. That won’t do much for the author except becoming sick and whatnot due to stress. And that especially won’t do us well.
      Do us all a favour and forget about anything regarding unreleased chapters, be it from translators or the authors themselves. Unless, of course, you’re willing to sacrifice a part of your free time to release them yourselves.


  36. I started reading this series about 2 weeks ago cause I enjoyed the Manga. And I’ve finally caught up.

    Thank you very much for you hard for 2 years, and what’s to come. I’m going to start reading the other LN you picked up just because you’re translating it. ❤


  37. Thanks for the chapter. Also I have a suggestion for you if you want to translate a novel. It’s called “Using my God skill “Breathing” to level up, I will challenge the dungeons of the gods”. I like it’s prologue but the translator stopped translating it after 1 chapter.


  38. Man Makoto is fucked up but I blame PRG for knowingly attacking the wrong person because of one girl being emotional its like they are a shitty street gang.


  39. Great work at translating as usual makes me feel bad to skip most of it since these last few chapters are total shit and so god damned drawn out worse yet is extremely sadly no one on makoto s side will die so no tension or drama either

  40. If you’re not taking Makoto’s side despite his lack of remorse, you’re either a contrarian or a kid. I can’t believe people here would take @redcolonel’s naive and contrarian blathering as valid. PRG was wrong, the end.

    >But Makoto came ready for a battle
    Because he didn’t have any other choice to wait. And PRG was the one who sent out a notice about a fight, Kuzunoha Company didn’t go there to fight.

    >But Makoto used brainwashing, that’s evil because there’s no choice but for submission to happen
    Makoto used it to end a fight. Hibiki and Tomoki are using it to start a fight. Context matters but somehow it’s thrown out the window for this stupid contrarianism.

    >submission is not negotiation
    If you’re native enough to believe all negotiations happen between people of equal power, you need to read up on world history and stop being naive like pre-Zara Makoto.


    1. Firstly, to be contrarian means you’re opposing popular opinion purely because it’s popular opinion. The idea that Makoto didn’t do anything wrong is clearly not popular opinion, and there were reasons-whether you agree with them or not-to not take Makoto’s side. Calling it a contrarian opinion fails the definition on both accounts.

      Point 1: PRG did cause the conflict, but Makoto provoked them before that when he killed the assassins and he certainly escalated the conflict by coming in prepared to fight.
      Thinking that PRG’s leaders wouldn’t want a fight after killing someone close to them is at least as naive as thinking negotiations should be from equal positions.

      Point 2: Context certainly matters, but brainwashing is itself a reprehensible act even if circumstances force your hand. To make an exaggerated example, if some bizarre circumstance forced someone to painfully kill every child in a city for the sake of saving all of humanity, it’s still a horrible thing to do even if there are heroic intentions justifying it.
      I personally agree that the ends justified the means, but you must never forget what those ends and means objectively, are.

      Point 3: Makoto’s negotiation tactic is certainly in line with how this world functions, and it’s true that expecting equality is pure idealism. But it’s an ideal for a reason. Just because it’s true doesn’t mean it’s not a bad thing.
      Pretending that the problem doesn’t exist is naivete and ignoring a problem that you know exists brings nothing to the table.

      1. I personally still don’t get why people refer to this as brainwashing. There’s a different between mind-break and mind-control. One doesn’t make the other better, for both are bad, but there are still not the same thing. The mind breaks on its own for the first one, while the mind is directly shaped in a new form for the second one. Plus, since Makoto didn’t add a function to re-shaped the broken mind in a way he want, it doesn’t enter any brainwashing category.
        The mind-break here was quite simple.
        See illusions of failure and death until she gives up on her trying to kill someone who fought back against assassins, and even with that it took her many tries to understand the stupidity of her decisions since it leads to all of her friends involved dying.
        There is not a single brainwashing element here. This is a case of making something learn the hard way that they’re wrong and should stop the bullshit. And the decision to stop is Pione’s own. It wasn’t implanted in her mind.

        Plus, at the of it all, she didn’t fully break either. She was capable of speaking normally, and was instead only very afraid of Makoto and had been reconsidering her decisions. While I still don’t like her, at the very least she wasn’t a complete moron since even if it took her quite a while to understand, she still ended up understanding before reaching a true breaking point. Had she fully broken, she would’ve been a mess and in a mentally broken state with everyone, and that isn’t the case.


      2. I think the idea is carried across with both terms.

        It can be considered brainwashing since it corners her to the point where she’s only allowed to think one way and robs her of choice. It can also be called mindbreaking since it’s actively trying to crush her spirit until she agrees.

  41. Why does that bitch even need to be avenged or defended?! Her “friends” tried to kill the MC! What was he suppose to do? Just sit there and let them kill him?! I would be like BITCH grow up he DEFENDED himself END OF STORY!


  42. This doesn’t make sense at all… I bought MC would make a cooler method of understanding. He simply extended the trauma. It’s pretty inhumane method.. Like forced shock treatment.

  43. Anyone gets the same feeling that Aznoval’s attitude is haughty as if he’s the one that brings judgment on others? I hope he gets his *** kicked soon so that he knows his place
