“Impossible! You four Base Elements can’t maintain yourselves unless you receive prayers from humans, right?!” (Haine)
I heard that from Yorishiro.
For the Gods, the prayers of humans should be a sweet poison. They drunk that delicacy to the point of drowning, fattened themselves with it, and not only that, they ended up unable to live without the prayers of humans.
Mother Earth Mantle is one of the four Base Elements.
If she steals the consciousness of people and makes them unable to pray, it would mean her doom.
“No need to worry, Entropy-san.” (Mantle)
Mantle answers calmly.
It feels as if she is a completely different person from the woman that was crying ‘I’m sorry’ just a moment ago.
“Grandma Wood’s second form doesn’t have such a poor making. It can assimilate humans and provide them with nourishment, along with absorbing the soul energy that is pretty similar to that of the prayer energy. We will be presenting each other with the things we both want. If I remember correctly, this is called a ‘mutualism’, right?” (Mantle)
“What are you even talking about?!” (Haine)
Mantle may call it the ultimate happiness, but there’s no way that’s the case!
Stealing the freedom of thought from the humans and leaving them in this state where they are simply alive, there’s no way that’s happiness!
“Entropy-san, I hate conflicts.” (Mantle)
“That has been the case even 1,600 years ago. The moment the Gods began fighting, I was simply scared. I thought: ‘who cares about humans, I just want the fight to be over’.” (Mantle)
Mantle wished for the fast ending of the battle, and took the side of the five Gods that had the advantage. I myself faintly understood this fact.
“But it is not as if I hate humans. They are intelligent, peaceful, and they respect a God like me. But even them, when there’s a clash in opinions, they soon enter into disputes as well. Why do people and Gods fight? That’s why I thought of this; the best way to live without conflicts.” (Mantle)
“And that is to turn humans into living corpses?!” (Haine)
“Eternal eradication of conflicts. That’s exactly the ultimate happiness! Even so, the violent Nova-san and the evil Coacervate-san would be against it and get angry, so I couldn’t find the chance to put it into practice. I…had no courage.” (Mantle)
‘But…’, is what Mantle says as she continues.
“That courage…you gave it to me, Entropy-san. You praised me for the first time! You agreed with me! That’s why I was able to hold my head high and challenge this great enterprise! I will have Grandma Wood swallow all the people that worship me, and bring them into a dream world where no conflict exists!!” (Mantle) <God damn it, Madara. So this is where you ended up!>
It is my fault?!
Did a weird switch get flipped because I told her words that are normally not told to her?!
While we were doing this, the giant tree had its roots wriggle without restraint and was capturing people one after the other. Moreover, the enemy of the people were not only Grandma Wood.
“The Golems are—!!”
“The Golems are attacking us! Everyone, get away!!”
The Earth monsters that were born from Grandma Wood, Golems.
They were originally exceptions from the monsters that attacked humans; they helped out in the livelihood of humans, and lived alongside humans. It was as if they were the friends of humans, but now, Golems have betrayed humans.
They take advantage of their big frame to grab the closest person to it, and give them to the roots of Grandma Wood.
The Golems that have been born from the earth Mother Monster are clearly the dependents of the Mother Earth God. The authority rights are higher for the God than the people.
Obeying the will of Mantle, the Golems transport the people to Grandma Wood as if they were harvesting humans. Also, as if saying they won’t be letting the people at the houses out, the door are being tightly closed.
Now that I think about it, I was told that the houses in this city are made from transformed Golems.
They are trapping the people inside until the root visits them.
Their lifestyle that relied heavily on Golems was proving to be their downfall at this moment.
“Now then, let’s all go together to the dream world. There, in exchange of receiving your soul energy, I will provide you all with unending happiness.” (Mantle)
That unending happiness you are talking about is a sleep that they won’t be waking up from!
Dark Matter gushes out from my hands.
“I will protect this place. In the meantime, hurry and run!” (Haine)
The words I said made the people of Ishtar Blaze dumbfounded for a second, but because of the fear of danger, they soon began running away.
“What’s wrong, Entropy-san? If you do that, my work will be hindered.” (Mantle)
“Obviously. I plan on getting in the way, after all.” (Haine)
It looks like the Fairy Mantle couldn’t understand those words of mine.
“I was careless. In the end, you four Base Elements all have a loose screw somewhere huh.” (Haine)
“What are you saying? Didn’t you…praise me?” (Mantle)
“And I am saying that was a mistake! Mother Earth God, Mantle! I will destroy that screwed up ideal of yours along with that giant tree!!” (Haine)
My dark matter is released.
This dark matter that holds a complete advantage against the fire, water, wind, and earth, is plenty effective against the earth Mother Monster, Grandma Wood.
But it wasn’t an effective method.
Grandma Wood had already assimilated several hundreds of people.
Even if I were to destroy it with dark matter in that state, it is absolutely impossible to achieve that without hurting the people.
I naturally couldn’t go into the desired offensive and ended up fighting a defensive battle.
Creating a wall with dark matter, it took my all to make sure the roots wouldn’t get close to the people, but my opponent is that giant tree. It can easily go around the defense line I created, and it can attack the people from anywhere.
At this rate, the situation will just gradually worsen.
I have to make a drastic countermeasure… is what I was thinking when…
I suddenly felt killing intent from my back, and an instant after I twisted my body, the blade of a giant scythe passed by there, at the place where I was before.
That was dangerous.
If I hadn’t avoided that instantly, I would have been cut in two.
The one who swung the giant scythe was a small girl.
It is the first time I have seen this girl.
I have not seen her once in my time at Ishtar Blaze. Just who is she?
“Earth hero, Gonbee Sasae!! I’ll be saving Great Pillar-sama-dasu!! Let’s gooo!!”
- 122: Too much for a hero
The hero appears at this timing?
From the looks of this small girl that called herself Gonbee Sasae, I assume she is around 12-13 years old. She is younger than any other hero I have met, and with that, makes her look less reliable than the others as well.
But I couldn’t lower my guard.
Her eyes are devoid of light after all.
“I won’t forgive you-dasu! How dare ya do this to Ishtar Blaze!!” (Sasae)
No wait. Could it be that this girl is thinking this chaos is my fault?
“So you really were the personification of the evil Dark God-dasu na! Now that it come to this, I be executing my original objective-dasu! Golem Father, Golem Mother, Golem Boy!!!” (Sasae)
Without even finishing speaking, this Sasae-chan girl began attacking me.
The giant scythe was named Seeta, and it is most likely the divine weapon that represents the Earth Church.
Compared to the ones from the heroes I have seen, this one is on a whole other level of big, and the blade that has earth divine power flowing from it was dangerous enough to cut iron with it, but it wasn’t that much of a threat.
She is able to utilize the giant scythe to a certain degree, but her wide moves were making it easy to predict and easy to evade.
Her skill level is lacking compared to the other heroes, which is fitting for her age, even so, it is currently troublesome.
Because on the other side, Grandma Wood continued capturing humans, and in the time I am being troubled with Sasae-chan, the number of people caught increases drastically.
Even so, she may be having a misunderstanding here. She is angered by her homeland being hurt.
I can’t just inconsiderately knock her out…
“Don’t run around-dasu! Get cut in half to calm down Great Pillar-sama-dasu!!” (Sasae)
“Wait, you calm down! Even if you defeat me, Grandma Wood won’t stop!” (Haine)
Even when I tried to appease her, Sasae-chan was not lending me an ear at all.
“Just get defeated already-dasu! Giant Scythe Boomerang!” (Sasae)
She was probably trying to throw that giant scythe and treat it as a boomerang. But…
“Oh oa…” (Sasae)
It is a giant weapon that surpasses her height by a lot. The moment she tried to throw it, she lost balance, and the giant scythe spins rapidly at an unknown direction.
“Aaah, I messed up-dasu!!” (Sasae)
“?!! Oi, wait!!” (Haine)
At the place where the giant scythe was flying to, there’s a root of Grandma Wood. At its surface, it had already assimilated several tens of people.
If the scythe were to hit someone there—!!
“[Dark Matter, Set]!” (Haine)
I set up the Dark Matter at my hands to repulsion and fly with the recoil of it. At a speed that can catch up to that giant scythe.
Using myself as a bullet and hitting it with my body, I managed to strike the giant scythe before it reached the root.
The intense pain running at my abdomen.
It probably hit the edge of the giant scythe; I could see a cut that ran straight through my side.
Well, I did a body blow against a big blade like that, so I should consider myself lucky that I wasn’t cut in half.
“I did it-dasu! He be an idiot that went himself to get hit-dasu! This be my chance! I’ll give the finishing blow-dasu!!” (Sasae)
Picking up the fallen giant scythe, Sasae-chan approaches me.
However, because of the pain in my body, I couldn’t stand up properly.
This is bad.
Before the giant scythe fell onto my neck—
A big water current hit Sasae-chan and was washed away by the overwhelming water pressure.
Could this be—?!
“In Apollon City you were an incredible pain because of a misunderstanding, and yet, even here, you are rampaging with that same pattern?! What was the point of your reflection?!”
Why is the water hero here?!
“Long time no see~. That big wound makes you look really manly. Wait for a bit. I will close your wound by adjusting your body fluids.” (Celestis)
Saying this, she places Miki-Moses on my open wound, and then, my wound was closing at a visible speed that wouldn’t be possible with natural healing.
It can’t be called fully healed, but as expected of the Water element that possesses the most practical use out of all the elements.
“…No no, why are you here?!” (Haine)
“It is not only me. See?” (Celestis)
Is what Celestis says as she points at a direction, and I follow it.
“[Holy Light Blade]!”
A flash occurs from afar and fire roars.
That is without doubt…
“…Karen-san and Mirack?” (Haine)
“O’ yes.” (Celestis)
Celestis affirmed it.
“The two of them quickly judged what the situation was and went their ways. They are currently fighting to protect the residents from those roots, and are evacuating the people. The only one who plunged into the day after tomorrow without grasping the situation was you, local hero.” (Celestis)
Is what Celestis said as she grinded her fists at the temples of Sasae-chan.
“But because of my elemental affinity, I can’t fight straight on against those roots, so I got send here though. How to say it, baby-sitting the rampaging girl.” (Celestis)
The other side is earth element after all. It would be tough for the water element Celestis.
“But why are four heroes together? What happened to the protection of your bases?” (Haine)
“About that, I want to tell you about it together with all the events that have occurred till now, but you also understand that this is not the time for that, right? I am the one who wants to do the questions here. Just what is going on, and what is it that we should be doing. Quickly tell me in detail and in a concise way; say it fast and make it easy to listen to!” (Celestis)
Don’t ask for the impossible.
- 123: Decision of the hero
That woman’s plan…for now, I decided on leaving it as the plan of that giant tree. Putting it in a concise phrase, it would be ‘ultimate happiness’. Hearing this, Celestis and Sasae-chan froze.
Can’t be helped. It can’t be understood after all.
“The problem about this is that it doesn’t have a single shred of malicious intent about it. It is all out of goodwill. It is just that it decided this is okay for the sake of humans when it decided to take this violent action.” (Haine)
Assimilating the humans into the tree, it provides them with nourishment from inside it. In exchange, it will absorb soul energy from the tree and make them its foundation to live.
The assimilated humans will most likely be able to live forever inside the tree.
There’s no need to fight foreign enemies to protect themselves, no need to work in order to maintain themselves to live. And along with that, they won’t require to think, and won’t need emotions either.
You will be able to sleep inside the tree forever.
For it, even that is out of goodwill. It is trying to take away all the troublesome things required to live.
“What’s with that?! Don’t joke around!!” (Celestis)
Taking out the parts about me and Mantle from the explanation, the first one to straight out object was Celestis.
“You saying that just by living you will be happy?! Humans can feel happiness exactly because they think and feel, right?! Don’t go putting us on the same level as plants just growing on the ground!” (Celestis)
The anger of Celestis surpassed my expectations.
She is the hero that held doubts towards being fully devoted to being a hero and entered the bizarre route of being an idol hero.
She definitely would object more than anyone else about that logic of having their free will taken away and considering existence as ‘happiness’.
“Rascals, did you hear that?!” (Celestis)
“Yeah, the reception here is favorable.”
“It is hard to believe, but if Haine-san said it, there’s no mistake.”
I heard the voice of Mirack and Karen-san, who are not supposed to be here.
“What are you getting all scared for? We are keeping in contact with the ethereal sound transmission device.” (Celestis)
There’s something as convenient as that?!
True, now that I look carefully, there’s something at the ears of Celestis?!
“The Ethereal sound transmission development is the most advanced at my Hydra Ville! At any rate, I put one vote on kicking the ass of that tree! If they stay sleeping, they won’t be able to hear my singing and they won’t be able to see my dancing either!” (Celestis)
“I also agree. Like hell I would let a damn tree decide the happiness of humans!” (Mirack)
“I also…” (Karen)
The voice of Karen-san, that can be heard from the wireless device, made a small pause and finally says this.
“I can’t accept the opinion of that tree. Humans have the right to at least think about what is it that makes them happy. What that tree is doing is a breach to that right. Once hit, opposing is a legitimate right that we have as well!!” (Karen)
As expected of heroes. Their decision making is refreshingly fast.
And within that group, only one hero was maintaining silence.
“What will you be doing, Sasae-chi?” (Celestis)
Celestis slaps the shoulders of Sasae-chan.
“This is the Earth capital, Ishtar Blaze. ‘Protect this place’, in reality, you as the earth hero should have been the first one to declare that will of yours, you know.” (Celestis)
It isn’t that simple of a matter.
It is exactly because this is her homeland and she knows deeply about the people here that it is making her decision difficult.
The giant tree that is currently rampaging, just how much was it loved by the residents here? Just how unbelievable that betrayal is? It is exactly because she knows about it, that her feet are heavier.
Moreover, she is the youngest out of the current heroes. It would be fitting to call her childish. For such a Sasae-chan, this was a harsh choice.
“Uhm, what happened to Earth Founder-sama…” (Sasae)
“He was the first one to get caught by the tree.” (Haine)
My answer kicked Sasae-chan deeper into despair.
There’s already no one who can think for her stead.
“Aah geez! How long do you plan on dancing around!” (Celestis)
Celestis got pissed, but the decision of Sasae-chan didn’t seem to be coming out.
That’s right. As we were in this, roots had come attacking us as well.
“Kugh…[Dark Matter, Set]!” (Haine)
I create a wall with the dark matter and stop the advance of the roots.
But I can’t go all out. If I were to go at full output in the destructive trait of the dark matter, it might erase even the divine energy of the assimilated people that maintains their very life, or they might get crushed by the heavy gravity.
“You! What are you doing?! Your wound is not closed yet!” (Celestis)
The healing from the water divine power of Celestis was still not done. She can’t leave her hands from it.
There’s no other choice but for me to do this.
“Aah, why?! You are the personification of an evil Dark God, and yet, you—!!” (Sasae)
Seeing this, Sasae-chan looks at this paralyzed.
This is bad. Releasing dark matter obviously affects my wound, and we are fighting a defensive battle at a foreign land. I can’t expect help from Karen-san and Mirack who are evacuating the citizens.
The moment I felt like I couldn’t keep up my defense anymore…
The roots that were attacking us had been suddenly cut into round slices.
We witnessed this spectacle with surprise.
That root had people stuck onto it at its surface as well, but as if avoiding them, the sliced pieces were cut in a complex manner.
I could instantly tell at a glance that this was god-like skill.
And what did this was a single swing of the giant scythe; the earth scythe, Seeta.
But the one who was holding it wasn’t Sasae-chan.
It was someone completely unexpected.
“B-Baa-chan?!” (Sasae) <Grandma>
Sasae-chan shouts this in surprise.

Thank u always for ur great work…
Thanks for the chapter and hardwork
I gog ypu in my sight…..
Thank you Reigokai !
Oh, and Happy Birthday Dicky Satria.
You said your birthday was yesterday right?
thanks orca, i’ll throw you some seal :3
I don’t need the seals.
But thanks for the Famous Amos cookies you sent me yesterday !
happy birtday dicky!
Thanks for the upload
Thanks for the chapters.
On a side note, im curious about Sundays, are they no longer sponsored chapter day?
Sponsored chapters are sponsored chapters. They still exist, but if there’s no sponsors, sadly, there’s no sponsored chapters either :S
Seems I haven’t visited that part lately…just I thought there were still some in schedule.
Something must be done about this
im sorry reigokai san, but im a poor fuck
Hmm. Should I take this title optimistically, or ominously?
Thanks for the chapter. Hmm.
You’re thinking too much.
This is indeed true utopia.
You told me before that you would want to stay in the matrix but not be the power source, right? There you go now, you can be part of a giant tree. You will not be the power source/battery but a little bit of your soul will be taken as rent. Deal?
Rather than battery, the people become something like a food source… actually you are still an energy source just in a slightly different way.
Hey now. That’s not quite the same.
This would be much more grey for me if Mantle telepathically linked up all her victims’ minds into a world of imagination. Sleeping is just…meh.
I don’t care about the power source aspect of it whatsoever. I’ll be a battery or whatever you want since I’m not going to be using that energy anyway.
pseudo utopia perhaps, coz you can not make a harem out of it. also, the population will be declining with the time. so it’s not an everlasting utopia but human farming.
Farming job suits her best.
Thanks for all your hard work! 😄
That old lady is definitely the old hero or mantel??
Can’t be Mantle, she didn’t apologize enough for clubbing him over the head on their first meeting.
The Madara comment, though. Made me chuckle
It was real. Madara can really jump to another dimension!
Mandara got isekaied after he got hit by a fire truck!
All in favor of imaging Mantle as Madara with huge breasts until illustrations establish otherwise?
hmm…. i blame the genderbend of rule 34 for that
Now then watch this old woman be either
A) The previous Earth Hero
B) The Wind Hero
C) The Wind God
I somehow doubt the Wind Hero or God would be using an Earth weapon…it’s not impossible, just incredibly unlikely.
I vote on Previous!
well…. there is always a hidden BAD ASS OLD PEOPLE in anime/manga/ln/wn…. but that to be the grandma that Haine help ? welp…… she might go Bankai with the scythe/sickle
D. Previous earth founder
Thanks 4 the translation!
Don’t tell me that grandma is the previous earth hero!
Looks like some share the same suspicion.
I know I did too.
Now I wanna see a sparring match between Earth Baa-san and Doraha.
The battle of the old heroes!
Doraha-chan is older though…
But, on the other hand, Obaa-chan has the edge in actual life experience.
Thanks for the chapters, Reigo-senpai.
How did I know that the old lady was actually earth hero’s grandmother?
Cuz you read ahead? maybe? huh? is Spoiler-san back already?
Sh*t. If so, we don’t have a Truck to ram it with anymore.
No worries! We have an Orca that can both RAM(!) and BITES(!) the hell out of Spoile-san! and don’t forget about The Demon King and it’s Heavenly commander!
…Who are they again?
If I remember correctly… The Skybound Orca, The Faithless Bear, The Nameless Namer(er?), The Psychronic Thinker, and last but not least our Devilish Demon King… The Stiffpole Dicky!
This is the newest incarnation of the Demon king and the heavenly commander I think… I am not that acquinted with the former Heavenly commander since I am but a fresh leaf in this vast forest.
…They don’t sound very dependable.
You know you are in there right?
quick ! someone order large amount of MgRonald so that Maou dont read ahead of us !
Nnuuoo~~!! Not Spoiler-san!!
And Pikli, I doubt he’ll bite ’em, but bring to the other world peacefully through!! Also, it’s not his job either~~!!
….Ouh Wait!! We have another Truck here!! That even our Reigokai-sama knows of, It’s Truck-sama!! Where is he when we need him!! 😭
Oh there you are Namer! Havent seem you in a while~ hahaha~ our beloved 🚚-kun is a mammal now… and I don’t know any other truck other than our beloved mammal… well in any case… unless Spoiler-san can travel to and back from the future I doubt he will spoil anything for us.
isn’t Spoiler-san from the 5th dimension? I think I just jinx us…
Well, I might be gone after this again though…..
I’m on LN Marathon here, that’s why you rarely see me out here most of the time and I still keep TsukigaMichi’s chappys, that’s the first portal community I commented on too.
And, yeah, I think you do Jinx us with that…
Darn it, if only ‘something’ can do something about this, Truck-sama is the best bet we have but we can’t really count on him and our Orca-chwan isn’t much of a hope but that’ll do…I think….let us have hope he can save us from Spoiler-san…..
Or at least we can sacrifice our Orca-chwan ffor the sake of a spoiler free community… right? *Beaming eyes*
Pikli bear, don’t go spreading baseless rumors like that. I’m not a demon. Since when did I become a demon general !?
Flying Orcas are majestic and holy. Most cannot even see us. Few eyewitness can only describe vague images like fog or something. That is because only those with the purest heart can see our true form.
* Those who see us in a demonic or haunting images are people who don’t have much time to live. They’re about to die and what they see are actually their demise and the place they will be in hell. *
Hey hey hey…. Just because normal humans can’t see your true form doesn’t mean a Bear Demon cannot! Anyway no matter what your form is, wether it’s holy or demonic, it doesn’t matter! because our demon king is a unique one! he doesn’t operate by following his greed and egoitism… he operate following his desire to enjoy a good read… isn’t he wonderful? So let us go forth and enjoy these majestic chapters (and worship out lord and saviour Reigokai-sama while we are at it).
…..*rubs eye*….I think I’m seeing Illusions here…
Does that look majestic to any of you guys?
Ain’t holy too……Wait, maybe there’s something cut-….no, it’s my imagination, false alarm…..
Hold on a minute, am I having little time left now??
……..THIS IS YOUR FAULT, ORC- *om nom nom* *buurrrkk*
PANTASMA!!!!! Someone get a DOCTOR QUICK! I will not let you blow us all away! Not like philip! Stay Alive Pantasma!
Thanks for the chap
YES, NEXT CHAPTER IS W.R.
Thank you for not leaving us hanging by the cliff
Reigokai will pull you up.
Yes, he wouldn’t leave his harem members hanging on a branch, like me for example….but don’t trust Orca-chan to give you a ride from that cliff though….I’m speaking from experience….
….it was dreadful 😩
(Why you abandon me~, Orca-chwan~!!😭)
Thx for the chapters ☺️
Nice job as always Reigo san
Thanks for the chapters!
The old granny-ex-machina, it never fails to surprise me.
They get you to lower your guard by moving around slowly, and being the nicest most harmless thing you ever saw, only to jump in like a ninja at the crucial times.
It is a widely known fact that active elderly people are incredibly dangerous given oportunity. Ask your grandpa for a box lesson if you don’t believe me.
Avia ex Machina to the rescue!
Badass old people are probably one of my favorite tropes ever. There’s just something immensely satisfying about the subversion of expectation, even if you actually expect it.
from fragile old lady into super power grandma that will kick yo ass with slipper 😛
See?? Sasae is just a pile of troubles. She the most painful and troublesome hero to deal with.
Also, with the most awful personality. God, I really hate her.
Just wait til she learns her cross element skills, maybe Mud and Tree skills with the Water Hero, wonder what the others will unleash…?
by the time she learn her cross element skill I’m sure that she would be less annoying than she is now. She need to become one in heart in order to use it right? at this moment she is not capable of such feat.
Yeah, but Celestis has a shortcut for that, and she already has the girl in a headlock. It’s just a matter of time.
Wait what? Shortcut? What did Celestis do to Sasae? Did I miss something?
Boob groping worked for aligning their hearts between the other three, and Celestis is a performer that can get in sync with others pretty easily. So since she’s already working on the skinship, by grinding her fists into Sasae’s temple, they should be just about to start using combined elements.
I don’t think that’s how the system works… it would be cute though if that was the case.
I personally think the system that is used to activate element cross is more complex than that. Like they must have some sort of similar conviction or some kind.
For Light and fire they are childhood friend.
For light and water they admired each other and have the same desire to save the city.
For fire and water… because they are basically the same type of person(only with different traits) and they have the same desire to save the city.
I don’t think there are any similarity in conviction between earth hero and the other hero… yet.
Is this story good?
Give it a try and see for yourself.
Wait a minute, did you read it from here??
You wouldn’t know if you read it from here….
But from our opinion, it’s a very good read cause it has clichés that we know of and great humor especially!
Well, just try it.
You wouldn’t know something unless you do/try it yourself!
Have a Great Read! 😊
Thanks for the meal..
Great… she got praised, become overzealous and then caused quite a mess, this goddess… she is troublesome in her own way and her hero did not help things either. God damn it Mantle and I have a feeling when this is all over I am going to heave a great sigh and face-palmed, again.
So it really was Mantle all along?
She gave the oracle and now… she got overconfident.
Not so much overconfidence so much as…ahead of herself after being overstimulated.
For a socially withdrawn person, praise and approval is apparently one hell of a high.
I had my suspicions and it seems like they are most likely spot on. That granny was the previous Earth Hero and now we’re gonna get to see a classic bad-ass granny do the gardening.
Old people are often awesome in these sorts of stories that are full of magic and conflict.
As the saying goes, “Old folks don’t get to be that way by being easy to kill.”
old folks in fantasy story usually have hidden power on the time of crisis and it happen to be this obaa-san
now im waiting her to go Bankai XD
Thank you for the chapter! Hah… Sasae is more trouble than she is worth… for now at least… she is in dire need of character development!
In her defense, she’s thirteen at oldest.
Back when I was her age, I was chunni-ing it up like a dork and discovering the wonderful world of naps.
It doesn’t mean she didn’t fall short as a Hero, but it does mean she really shouldn’t have been appointed in yet in the first place.
Who’s idea was it to appoint teenagers in such position with influence? (fiction logic)
nostalgia feels.. when I was thirteen as was playing Grand Chase XD
Probably decided by the same people who thought teenagers were the best for stories, harems, and overall romance shenanigans. Power fantasies in general, really.
grand chase…. i miss that one… too bad the game stopped… even though i have lots of costume :<
Talking about nostalgia, when I was thirteen I fought in the war against invaders of my country. If you think your life is shit, then war is even worse. This is true story around the year 2000.
Me and the other kids, we threw stones at the soldiers… hit and run strategy. (Thinking about it now, that doesn’t help at all. Stones against steel, we had no hope but only vented our frustation). Well, I helped smuggle food rations for civillians since I was small enough to fit in the underground tunnel.
It was my mom (I was adopted) who tought me how to fight. I trained and fight at every opportunity during the war and it wasn’t long before I became well known in the battlefield.
But our enemies never stop. I saw my brother and sisters die in feont of me…
If god won’t help us… if Entrophy-sama can’t break his seal and help us, then I WILL in his stead !
Wait, that was Doraha’s flashback. Not mine.
When I was thirteen, senpai gave me a letter. I remember that it was a letter telling me that she wanted to know me more and be closer, but most boys my age at that particular era only know sports or games and feared our disciplinary teachers to hell and I was in the vast majority.
I took that obliviously like a kid would and time passed (years later I would understand the REAL meaning of that letter and banged my head on the wall).
*Whisper to self*
Mom: What was that sound?
Me: … Nothing. B… book just fell.
Girl 1: Let’s .. you know.. hold hands.
Me: Nah, my hands aren’t cold.
Girl 2: Hey, (my name)!
Friend: Dude, that girl’s really in to you.
Me: *doubts friend* So?
(She was really into me.)
Girl 3: You know what, let’s go out.
Me: Not interested.
(Phase where I prioritize school over anything else.)

Well if the previous hero is already a granny then… they have to promote her wether they want to or not.
The problem is they need to educate her properly. Why did you think Haine let himself get hit on purpose? Err… where is the battle take place Sasae-Chan? Oh? What is it? THAT’S RIGHT! IT’S IN YOUR CITY! And what is in a city? Correct again! PEOPLE! And is there any chance that that uselessly huge scythe you threw hitting one of the citizen? OF COURSE THERE IS! And what happened when your schyte hit a helpless citizen? THEY DIE! So in conclusion? Haine WANTS to PROTECT YOUR city!
Yes I know that her tension is high back there, and yes she is young.. but she is a hero and she also remind us that she is one whenever she introduce herself. So at least she should be able to get her priorities straight… huh…. I tried to do my best to not let my bias takes over here… I really need for Sasae to get some character development…
Well anyway I can’t wait to know what happen next~
I’m sure she’ll go through development over time.
Rather, I’m certain that she’s going to look back on this moment in a couple years and feel super embarrassed from it not unlike how I feel when I think back to myself in the 8th grade.
Of course, Celestis is totally not gonna let her ever live it down with jabs and tease…
…Whuh?! Sorry, I lost my train of thought once I imagined Celestis upgrading to “Onee-san woman” level.
Celestis? As an Onee-san?
I’m not sure I can imagine that… she is always a tsukkomi character to me…
She can be both. A sharp tongue is invaluable for a fun nee-san anyway.
I would like my Onee-san to be the healing type, thank you very much~
Wow, you guys have cool days~
I was a nerd and nobody cares about me at that age….such sad days to remember….*sigh*
….I’ll be at the corner there….if you need me…..*tears, hhhuuuaaa~~!!!*
You were a IKEMEN??!!!
Nnuuoooo~~~ why you here~!! (Well, we need you here anyway)
I, for one, is hurt by this unfair reality 😭
I have ugly face!! 😭
…..at least here, I have My- I mean, our Pikli and Orca-chwan….😆
I need to say that comments’ section is an entire different novel already. I’m just waiting for the release of the next chapter of this awesome social novel 😀
BTW, Willy-san, I was shocked by the story until I read it was Doraha’s, lol. You got me there, buddy.
Technically, a social novel is just a novel with themes that explore, address, or satirize social problems. The sort of thing you’d expect to read in a school assignment.
Maybe… “Community Novel”? Either way, it’s definitely an interesting story with ups and downs.
I wonder where the comments section for it is…
No, I’m not an ikemen. I just was innocent, air-headed and naive back then. Girls approach me because they thought I’m harmless and ‘cute’, and I was (I guess, that’s a black history in a way huh?) … Yeah, they’ll be disappointed that I grew up kinda cynical and grumpy if ever we meet again.. (Those were my glory days and I didn’t even realized it.)
so that baa-chan was former earth hero all along
The secret heroine was the kindly Baa-san!
To be honest, I was expecting the Wind Hero to make her appearance, but I like this even better. Wait…then why couldn’t she slay those wild boars herself?
Umu. Sasae is still just a child at the end of the day. It doesn’t change the fact that she’s kind of failing as a Hero, but it was a pretty harsh task to demand of her to begin with.
Geez. Poor(?) Mantle is probably going to suffer a lot of fallout from this rampage. Faith in her is totally gonna collapse.
…Oh. Unless we find a way to pin the blame all on another god impersonating her for this incident? Probably that dickhead Coacervate. Since he’s going to do something convenient like “operate in the shadows”, we might as well take advantage of his unwillingness to step into the limelight.
Something like “that god forcibly took over Grandma Wood and warped its love for humans into something awful!” might work. And let’s throw the oracle in there as well for a clean slate.
She may had the skill but not the agility.
OP Baa-chan is here!!!
Thanks for the chapter!
Now we see whom the true yandere is.
Thanks for the chapter
“The road to hell is paved with good intentions” fit this kind of situation…..i hope next chapter will be an epic clash of yandere vs yandere….mantle vs inflation.
I mean, let’s be honest.
Mantle would totally lose that. Because she’s so weak-willed, her battle power is stifled tremendously.
…Hmm. Actually, it would be quite interesting to see Mantle’s people getting threatened to the point that her protective instinct as “Mother” overrides her desire for peace.
hmmm…. this one…
“And I am saying that was a mistake! Mother Earth God, Mantle! I will destroy that screwed up ideal of yours along with that giant tree!!” (Haine)
why am i imagining it as Kamijou Touma with his Imagine Breaker punching everyone equally
Wait till you guys see grandma go bankai! …..JK
Thanks for the chap ~
Thanks for the update
…Its the whole ”Stamp Collecting Robot” business all over again, with the naive ”scientists” tried to accomplish it ”happiness” by increasing the stamp counter instead of actually giving it stamp, mistaking the reason of happiness
So it’s one of those eternal prison/dream thing to bring peace to the world like eternal mangekyou, anti-spiral, Cosmo Entelecheia, the eden project, and etc……………………
Man, so many of this type are being used lately hmmmmmmmm……
Btw thank you for the double chapters :D.
（ ´・ω・`) (○) Thanks….
,( ヽ∩∩ノ),、ヽ|〃,,, Nepu……..
“““ ““ ““ ““ ““ ““ ““ ““““
We’re here for you~!
Grandma action next O.o
Btw why mantle voice changed from chumsy girl voice to Cold yangire girl voice in my head 🤔
Thanks for the chapters!
Guess baa-san is the previous hero.
Nice OP Baa-san must have at least one over powered old person, now respect them or they might just give you the beating of your life.
Thx for the Chappy, Reigokai-sama~! 😆
Gekh?! Celes-chan is captured by that manly look(wounded)?!
……..hope this will shoot up his rate on her ranking….
Mirack will take a lllooonnnggg time to notice Haine-san, cause if her “love” for Karen-san(her love can never be realised for eternity) is still going strong…..
I wonder how is the story gonna progress after he found all of the Mother Monster and destroy them, gonna be.
Is it gonna be like Final Fantasy stories? Unexpected things happen on their world; other gods exist besides them; there is another world besides them; or maybe they fight them self, like on another parallel world, there is Entropy too but his the one that is so Evil among them….
I mean, we can see where this is going, so I’d like to know other possibilities besides the ones we….more like the ones I know….but that’s a story for after his done with it all and what I ultimately want now to develop is, their relationships; not just Inflation and Karen, but Mirack and Celestis…and Sasae…and the Wind Hero too(….NO TRAPS PLSSS!!!😭), it will be even more better if they can develop it smoothly; not too fast and not too slow~ I’m here for the romance and harem(of course)…….and the plot too……can’t miss that out……
Ouh and Thx again for the lift up Reigokai-sama!!
I wouldn’t be hanging by the cliff (…or on the branch) if not for you.
Thank you for your hard work and Thank you for giving us readers a free read too~!
thanks for the chapter
” That big wound makes you look really manly.”
Eek.. sscary !
WOW!!! That’s too strong for the eyes man!!
….weird….why is it still cold….
*jeng jeng jjeeenngg*
*insert killer behind a person pic*
you’re cold ? maybe i should’ve stop putting ice cube on your back *tehe pero*
Gehk?! That was your fault?!
I knew something was up…. but I didn’t expect it was YOU!!
That…..*tehe pero*….ain’t your character Dicky!!
I’m getting a different vibe from that!!
Stop putting weird imagination in my head😱~!!
muhahahahahahah !! by the power of Pervertness graced by the glorious Pun-sama, and the power of Weirdness grace by who knows where it came from, i shall try to creep the hell out of everyone 😀 *tehe pero*
Dicky, your “tehepero” isn’t cute !
Try harder !
*you just looked like this guy
who said i want it cute !? i use that to make the hero puke and lower their defense so i can put ice cube in their clothes !
……Emm, you got small a goal there….
Well, what can i say….
Thanks for the translation
Gherman had a sister? The 2nd h00nter?!
Thanks for the chapter 😊
The real hero has arrived
That was… unexpected! In the sense of: how had I not seen that Obaa-chan was the previous hero?!
I’m also wondering: what will be of Haine-san after this? I expect the author to not use plot skills to hinder they knowing him being the Dark God, Entropy.
Thanks for the chapter. Grandma in this series sounds similar to the Grandma in the “Rising of the Shield Hero”. Maybe she might teach Haine something after the battle and she will definitely give her granddaughter to Haine.
hmm…. not sure you really think about that when Inflation herself kinda ‘hard to appeal’ when giving Haine a harem…. if that event make Haine wont take the harem then…. Inflation really goiing KABOOM
I am kind of question a little of Inflation. Mainly after what happen to Mantle, she was all innocent and pathetic. Right at the point she realize she is safe gone all crazy. The did at all the author might have at the end switch her over to the villain role mainly to surprise the readers. Mainly since she is the only 1 who can defeat Haine since Light is powerful then dark. And the whole thing where she made the Dark kingdom then the other gods destroy it, she gave them the information about prayer, then technology merges which cause the other gods make Mother Monsters, she releases Haine which then he decides to fight the other Gods and Mother Monsters. It just sounds pretty well thought up. But I going to keep this idea her becoming the villain to the side for right since there might be a chance she might not turn into a villain.
thanks for the chapter
I’m gonna bet that the Wind God descended as a loli monster. Maybe a loli harpy?
either that or paragliding panties falling down from the skies and BOOP Haine face
A mature, thus retired, Hero steps in to the fray.
Thanks for the chapter
I was working when a kid came, riding this little Cthulhu.
Guess who becomes my best friend now?
Don’t worry little kid, Mr Orca & Mr Cthulhu will protect you from those pesky lolicon.
What?! When did you become friend with Cthulhu?! And I haven’t heard Cthulhu anywhere around these parts(Comment Section)!
You two people (or legendary(?) and Majestic(?)/Animal Mammals) are suppose to be far apart; like The Sky and The Sea.
….hopefully that kid ain’t one of the MC you guys are gonna bring to the other world….if he does go, do me a favor, make ’em strong will ya!!
Thanks for the chapters!!
Thanks for doing this chapterr!🤓
…so the grandma was a former hero, eh.
