Chapter 126-128: Heroes vs Divine Tree

I control the dark matter and fly into the sky.

Looking down at a decent height, I could see the full picture of Grandma Wood once again.

I knew that the roots that were jutting out from the ground were wriggling like tentacles and were being used as weapons, but now that I look at it like this, the roots were branched to some extent, but there’s no more than 5 main roots.

There’s probably several times more of those underground, but it is most likely not utilizing those to maintain balance.

In the first place, the important role of the roots is to support the trunk that is towering high up. If it were to use all of them as weapons and takes them out from underground, the tree wouldn’t be able to maintain balance and fall.

Those five are probably the bare limit to how many Grandma Wood can take out while still maintaining balance.

At least that’s what I would like to think. If it were to increase even more, no matter how reliable of a reinforcement were to come, we wouldn’t be able to control the situation.

I heard a shout from my ear.

“And so, what are we going to do?! Just trying to stop those giant roots of the tree is already a crazy tough mission, you know! It might even be an impossible task!” (Celestis)

“You might already know, but I will say it just in case! Don’t touch that root directly! We will end up assimilated as well after all!” (Mirack)

“Eeh?! But I can’t do proper damage unless I cut it directly-dasu!” (Sasae)

“Calm down, Sasae-chan! If you do a hit-and-run, you won’t get caught!” (Karen)

Their voices were coming at me from the wireless device.

Thanks to the work of the heroes, there’s already no people around the perimeter of battle. Looks like they have been safely evacuated.

But now that there’s no people around, the Golems that now have nothing to do were gathering around where Karen-san and her group are in, and the more time passes, the higher the chances they will be crushed by the numbers.

“From what I see from above, the Golems have changed their objective and are heading your direction! Their moves are dull, but they are trying to crowd onto you! The more time it passes, the difficult it will be to move!” (Haine)

“Above?! Where are you at?!” (Celestis)

“I am going to be entering preparations, so I can’t help. I repeat! I can’t help! Please stop the movements of the roots by yourselves! I am counting on you!” (Haine)

I was already in the process of compressing my dark matter.

I would say it will take me until around the time I count to 1,000. Will the heroes be able to stop the movements of the roots by then?

“Everyone, hear me out!” (Karen)

The voice of Karen-san reverberates from the wireless device.

“Each of us fighting one separately won’t let us stop the roots from moving! Let’s gather up, cooperate, and find a method that we can do!” (Karen)

“Cooperate…in other words—?!” (Mirack)

“When in trouble, combined elements, right?!” (Celestis)

That’s right. In the long history of the five churches, not only the five have been fighting each other, this in turn made the heroes antagonistic with each other too.

When those heroes have overcome their conflicts with each other and put their hearts together, put their elements together, a new element is created.

That miracle has saved those girls from danger several times already.

“Eh? What you girls talking about-dasu?” (Sasae)

The new member Sasae-chan was the only one who couldn’t keep up with the conversation.

“It is that! The thing that destroyed your Golems in Apollon City!” (Mirack)

“But what will we be combining with what?! Mine and Karen-chi’s ‘Mirage’ may serve to confuse, but it won’t be fulfilling the request of stopping its movements, you know!” (Celestis)

“‘Lightning’ and ‘Explosion’ have way too high of a possibility to drag the people that are captured in the roots along with it, so we can’t use those either. In other words, the things we have used until now are all out of the question. That’s why, the one that we can put our hopes into is…at a new possibility!” (Karen)

A new possibility?

“……I see. Sasae! Where are you right now?!” (Celestis)

“What-dasu?! I be sending a sign-dasu!” (Sasae)

Soon after, a big cloud of dust rose up in the battlefield at a certain place.


Not long after…

“—Alright! I am the first one! Sasae, let’s do it!” (Mirack)

“Hiiiaa?! What-dasu?! Suddenly hugging me?! Why ye suddenly pouring divine power inside mah body-dasu?!” (Sasae)

“It is fine, just match my breathing! Mix the divine power! Chant the words that appear inside your heart just as it is! Get it?!” (Mirack)

“Fueeeee?!!” (Sasae)

““[Magma Ocean]-dasu!!”” (Mirack+Sasae)

The ground was dyed completely red.

I was in standby high up in the sky, so I could tell. It was letting out a fluid-type of shine that was different from fire, and the ground was shining in red.

Could that be…lava?!

The combination of fire and earth has created this lava?!

Because the ground has been covered in a liquid that is several thousand degrees in temperature, it made the roots of Grandma Wood falter and loosen their attacks but…

“This is just…!” (Mirack)

“It would burn the captured people into a crisp-dasu!!” (Sasae)

That’s right. If they were to make a wave from the lava that appeared, they would be able to deal heavy damage to Grandma Wood, but the people that are captured in the roots will certainly die.

Just like how ‘Lightning’ and ‘Explosion’ are no good, the new ‘Magma’ is obviously also an overkill.

“Geez, as expected of the fire element! No matter what you mix into it, it all turns into something atrocious!” (Celestis)

The voice I heard from the wireless device was Celestis. The next one to run to Sasae-chan was her huh.

“Just watch! This idol hero, Celestis-sama, will produce magnificent and beautiful water divine power, and do a complete make-up of this country bumpkin girl!” (Celestis)

“Hiiih?! I be in great demand for a while now-dasu?!” (Sasae)

It is hard to tell from just their voices alone, but Sasae-chan is probably in a state where she is being treated like a pet by a group of girls.

It is the pattern where she gets pampered so much that the next day she will end up all exhausted.

And then, what appeared from mixing ‘water’ and ‘earth’…

“”[Tree Plant]!!” (Celestis+Sasae)

With the two as the center, a green color mist was released, which is something I could see from my point of view.

What’s that mist?

And then, it fell due to gravity and falls to the ground, and when that happened, a surprising change occurred.

Grass began visibly growing on the surface of the ground, moreover, it was stretching without limits.

It was terrifyingly thick ivies. That’s the kind of plant it gave me the impression of.

Those wrapped around the roots of Grandma Wood and drag them to the ground.

Because they were plants, I thought for a second that they might be enemies, so I was cautious, but as I thought, it seems to be the combined element of Sasae-chan and Celestis.

Mixing earth and water, ‘Green’ appears. Moisturizing the earth, it invigorates the plants.

“Bingo!! Look at that! Being wrapped in ivy, the roots of that bastard tree can’t do anything! It is fulfilling the request of Haine-chi a 100%! Truly fighting fire with fire, plants with plants! As expected, of an idol. This is Celes-tan!” (Celestis)

“Enough with the boasting! If the combination of you and Sasae is a jackpot, grab the other roots as well.” (Mirack)

“Yes yes, I get it. I will move now—wait, eeeeh?!” (Celestis)

But she couldn’t. The Golems that had gathered at the surroundings were still continuing to surround them after all.

The giant roots that Grandma Wood is swinging around are 5 in total. Right now, only one of them has been wrapped and immobilized.

To restrain the remaining 4, she has to get close to where each of them is and activate the green element. But to do that, she has to get through the encirclement of Golems, and even if she manages to, it would take too much time.

“Oi, Sasae! You were controlling Golems in Apollon City, right?! Can’t you have them retreat with that ability of yours?!” (Mirack)

“It be impossible-dasu! They are not taking orders-dasu! The order authority was most likely taken away by Great Pillar-sama-dasu yo!!” (Sasae)

The one who was giving birth to the Golems is the Mother Monster, Grandma Wood.

The residents called it Great Pillar-sama and it should be easy even for Sasae-chan to imagine that it possesses high influence with the Golems.

But this doesn’t link to a solution.

They have to do something fast, or my preparations will be ending before they manage to stop them!

“Mirack-chi, you don’t have a role anymore, so how about going kamikaze on those Golems and self-destruct?” (Celestis)

“When that happens, I will make sure to bring you along with me! But, it looks like this time there’s no need for that.” (Mirack)

Weaving through the encirclement of Golems and passing by the giants one after the other, a silver flash approaches the three.

“Karen!” “Karen-chi!” “Karen-neechan!”

The light hero arrives at this moment.

  • 127: Outside reality

Karen-san arrives to where the team is.

“You are late, Karen! I was tired of waiting!!” (Mirack)

“We have found a solution, but there’s a lot of problems!! For the combined element of Sasae-chi and I to bind the roots, there’s the need to approach the objective to a certain degree! But for the sake of that, the Golems are a complete hindrance!!” (Celestis)

“What should we do?! Have Karen and I take the front and advance as we open the path?!” (Mirack)

The four congregated and their morale increased by quite a lot.

They are brimming with the will of overcoming this crisis by joining forces.

“…Hmm, it probably won’t make it in time. Haine-san will soon finish his preparations.” (Karen)

I felt the gaze of Karen-san from below.

“Haine-san is compressing the dark matter he releases at an incredible rate. It will probably be finished soon. We most likely don’t have the time to go around binding each root one by one. That’s why…let’s bet on the last possibility.” (Karen)

“The last possibility?” (Mirack)

“That’s right. There’s still one combination that we haven’t tried out yet, right?” (Karen)

“Understood! Then Celestis and I will hold back the Golems!” (Mirack)

“Sasae-chi! Do your best, got it?! This is the Earth capital, Ishtar Blaze! This is the main stage of the earth hero! Make sure you rock it!” (Celestis)

I hear the sound of fierce fighting from the wireless device.

But I could tell that there was a side that was incredibly silent.

“Let’s go, Sasae-chan. Light and earth combined element. With that, we will create a breakthrough.” (Karen)

“Understood-dasu. I been smushed for a while now, so I already got the gist of it-dasu yo!!” (Sasae)

And then, the different types of divine power were mixed, and after mixing, one new type of divine power appears.

“?!!! What?!” (Mirack)

“The Golems are—?!” (Celestis)

The first ones to notice the abnormality was Mirack and Celestis who were fighting at the frontline.

“The movements of the Golems have stopped! What happened?!” (Mirack)

“Don’t lower your guard, Mirack-chi! This might be the prelude to a new setup that large tree bastard is preparing!” (Celestis)

But that wasn’t the case.

In the moment the stopped Golems began moving again…their objective was already not the heroes –it was the roots of Grandma Wood.

Even with their big frames, the Golems jumped, used each other as footholds, and clung onto the giant roots, trying to bring them down to the ground.

The Golems were indeed encircling the heroes, but most of the Golems were scattered at the surroundings of the giant tree, so the attack occurred on all the roots at the same time.

In order to not hurt the people assimilated at the surface, they did it gently, but also firmly held down the roots to the ground.

That means the Golems are completely following our will.

Why did the Golems suddenly becomes our allies?

“Could it be…was this done by Karen and Sasae?” (Mirack)

Mirack reached straight to that conclusion.

“Light doesn’t only provide energy, it can also be used as a way to relay information. The things we see are because we can visualize the reflected light with our eyes, and light tells us a variety of information.” (Mirack)

“If I remember correctly, when Sasae-chi gives orders to the Golems, she pours earth divine power, right? When the light divine power and earth divine power combined, the earth divine power rode the light that is in the air, and was able to reach several Golems in far distances at the same time? Is that the combined element of light and earth?” (Celestis)

Celestis also joins in the deduction.

Even if that’s correct, the current Golems are being controlled by the highest authority holder; they should be moving on the direct orders of Mother Earth Mantle.

Are you telling me they have rewritten that control? Humans have?

“I…really can’t believe it-dasu yo.” (Sasae)

From the wireless device, a small and fragile voice is transmitted.

It is Sasae-chan’s voice.

“Golems been together with me since I be born-dasu. They been together with me since forever. They helped me, protected me. They be the friends of all the people in Ishtar Blaze-dasu yo. That’s why, I really can’t believe that they are enemies-dasu yo!!” (Sasae)

The hero, that lived in this land and knew of this land more than anyone else, raised her voice along with those violent emotions rising in her.

That voice rode the light and reaches the far ends of the world.

“Nice, Sasae-chan. Shout more. More!!” (Karen)

“Please, Golems!! Please help us-dasu yo!!” (Sasae)

The Golems overlapped and fuse into a giant Golem.

It was bigger than any Golem I have seen. To make a comparison, it is big enough to fight against the Fire Cow Phalaris and the Hydra Serpent. Moreover, fight several of them.

With that sufficient frame, it holds down the roots of Grandma Wood. The people at its surface are also okay.

Placing all of its weight, it felt as if it were trying to fix the rampaging roots in place.

The Golems are helping the humans again.

They have been relied upon so heavily, and in the end, betrayed them. In a situation where no one believed in them anymore, Sasae-chan was the only one who blindly believed in them, and that believing heart turned it into reality.

A young hero; a country bumpkin hero; a hero that doesn’t know things and stupidly causes problems to others. But that foolishness of hers is a foolishness that allows her to stupidly believe until the very end.

A believe towards the Golems that has been with her since birth.

It is because she believes in the Golems that she believed in Grandma Wood who gave birth to them; It is because she believes in the Golems that she believed in the Mother Earth God Mantle that they served.

Even if she ends up not believing in those two, she still didn’t stop believing in the Golems.

A foolishness that will be forgotten in time as you grow up; a foolishness that comes from youth.

Sasae-chan’s voice reached the places that it should have reached.

“Seriously, to think that a hero would ask for help from someone else to change the situation…” (Mirack)

“Isn’t that fine? Sasae-chi gives out an aura that makes you want to dote on her, right? Don’t you think that’s a quality of a hero as well?” (Celestis)

Even Mirack and Celestis laugh at the silly miracle that Sasae-chan created.

But that’s fine.

I love that foolishness that allowed for this miracle.

As someone who loves humans, loving only a part of the humans that I like would make that love of mine a lie after all.

And so, I finished what was in my hand right in time.

A compressed to the very limits dark matter; a ‘Micro Black Hole’.

I actually didn’t want to use it.

The strongest destruction method I possess as the Dark God. This is something that is originally used in order to reset a world that isn’t favorable.

By reducing its power to a trillion times, I get the thing that is in my hands.

But even with that, it is still hard to use this technique with my human body.

“…Even so, this is still plenty enough to erase half of your body!!” (Haine)

Giant tree!

Thanks to the heroes, the fear of dragging humans into it has completely disappeared.

There’s already no need to worry.

I stabilize my aim and release it.


But, at the place where I aimed at, at the light brown trunk of Grandma Wood that covers my whole view, there was one part that was shining fluorescently.

That shine had the figure of a human.

It was the Fairy of Mother Earth Mantle.

  • 128: Black Demise

Mother Earth God, Mantle.

The very culprit of this disaster has showed up again.

I can understand the reason of it.

She knows that she has been checkmated.

I take away the wireless device from my ear, and throw it away.

“Mantle, move away.” (Haine)

Even if we are far away, if we overlap the wavelength of Gods, we can have a conversation plenty well.

“If you think there won’t be any problems in being crushed because you are in the temporal form of a Fairy, you are heavily mistaken, you know?” (Haine)

“Why, Entropy-san?! Didn’t you praise me?! Didn’t you acknowledge that what I was doing was splendid?! And yet, are you going to reject everything now?!” (Mantle)

Mantle’s objection was painful.

“Everyone will be happy! Humans don’t have to fight, don’t have to work. They can push away all the troublesome things aside, and live forever! In return, I receive soul energy that is similar to that of prayer energy. Everyone gets something out of it, and no one suffers! Why are you getting in the way of such a splendid thing?!” (Mantle)

“Mantle…” (Haine)

That’s right. I didn’t notice how scary you could be.

Without understanding the other side of that frailty of yours, I thoughtlessly praised you, and as a result, promoted your rampage.

Inflation most likely noticed that madness that was hiding inside of you, and in order for it to not surface, she was always careful about it and pushing it down.

That’s probably the reason for Mantle’s usual weak demeanor she normally shows.  

“I am sorry. I was unable to truly understand you. Without understanding everything, I looked at only a part of you. I could only appreciate a part of you that was convenient for me. I am sorry. I am truly sorry!!” (Haine)

“Entropy-san, what are you saying?” (Mantle)

“But Mantle, happiness is probably not that simple of a subject. Just what is true happiness? An answer to that won’t easily come out. Everyone gets troubled by that question, and each individual has a completely different answer to it. That’s why there is no true answer, not now, and not ever.” (Haine)

Making someone else happy.

That might be meddlesome, but as a wish, I have to admit that a wish like that is not wrong in the least.

But to ignore the will of the other party and push your own answer at someone else, I think it is an irreparable sin.

Rather than obtaining happiness, thinking about what is happiness; for humans, the search for that in itself is important.

“That’s why, Mantle, I can’t forgive you, the you that is trying to steal the right of humans to think. I will be erasing that very action of yours. Just like how humans certainly die, just like how demise will always occur in the millenias of this world, right now, I will…” (Haine)

…Provide that demise to you and your subordinate  

“Heavily decreased [Black Hole Cannon]” (Haine)

From my hand, something that was as small as a grain was shot.

“I will say it again, Mantle. Move away.” (Haine)

Right now, it was docilely flying in one direction, and in the moment it arrived at the trunk of the giant tree, it does as it was set up to do beforehand…

It swallowed everything.

“Kyaaa!! Whaaat?!!” (Mantle)

The dark matter, that was compressed to the very limits, increased the gravity due to its mass, and when it reached a certain critical point, it turns into a black hole that releases unlimited gravity.

When that happens, nothing can escape. Whether it is something with substance or not, everything will get caught in its gravity, and be thrown into the depths of darkness.

Even the earth Mother Monster that possesses the most mass in this whole world had its wooden body creak conspicuously, and even the very creaking sound got swallowed along with the air, got crushed, broken, and disappears inside the darkness.

And then, the other things as well.

“Iyaaaa!! Why?! Why is my body as well?! Even my body is being dragged by the gravity~~~!” (Mantle)

Mantle’s desperate scream.

That’s why I warned you to move away from there.

This last resort of I -the Dark God Entropy- is not something sweet that would ignore things just because they don’t have an actual body.

A body that has nothing to do with mass… It can even swallow the soul of a God.

In my conversation with the Fire God Nova, I told him that ‘I can’t seal Gods’.

I can’t seal, but I can erase them.

To the depths of the darkness inside the Black Hole, that is.

This power that I didn’t use on even Nova and Coacervate; to think I would be forced to use it in you.

“…….You are the epitome of pity, Mother Earth God, Mantle.” (Haine)

If I had been more careful in my choice of words, we might have entered an understanding.

“Kyaaaaaaaaa!!! Noooooo!!” (Mantle)

Swallowing even the cries of the Mother Earth God, the Black Hole in time swallows even itself, and disappears without leaving a trace.

Just like how I set it up to do –it doesn’t leave anything behind.

Most of the giant tree was swallowed, and excluding the lower part that was gouged out and was left as just a stump…it didn’t have a single leaf remaining.

If I had set up the range, I could have made it so that the outside didn’t have a single wound, but the inside would not even have dust left.

My ultimate destructive technique.

That’s why I didn’t want to use it ever if possible.

But because of it, we were able to win this time.

No, it wasn’t only the power of the Black Hole.

The four heroes that came at the perfect time and did a splendid job at supporting me.

The victory was theirs.


And like this, the curtains to the battle in Ishtar Blaze closed.

The people that were assimilated into the roots of Grandma Wood were cut out one by one in time, and we managed to save them all without sacrificing anyone.

Separated from the tree bark, they regained their consciousness right after, and were able to operate just like before without change.

In terms of humans, there were no lives that were lost. In that sense, it can be said to be a blessing. But in exchange, the damage to the land was terrible.

Because of the rampaging of Grandma Wood, most of the buildings collapsed, the ground was broken, as if this were what was left after a natural disaster.

The sight was so terrible that it made me think it would be next to impossible to return it to being one of the five major cities.

But that almost impossible task is something that humans have to overcome.

No matter what difficulties are in front of them, to think about it and overcome it is what makes a human.

      1. Haine dies ?? well…. everyone will be killed by inflated bazoongas when that happen…. like the one in Spongebob the Movie light…. *flashback… BALD !!! BALD !!! BALD !!!! MY EYEEESSSS !!!*

    1. And that is how you would feel when you have a girlfriend and broke up with her when you just realize what she really is.

      So sad even thought she was a hut adorable….

    1. Who knows, she might have split a part of her being before, or as she was being consumed by the black hole. If fate dictates it so then we’ll see Mantle again, but who knows how she’ll act after seeing just how terrifying Haine, the Dark God, truly is.

      1. Umm… I think we ALL know how she’ll act… “I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry!!” while doing the ulimate art of apology: dogeza.

    1. It really is a sad day for us all…
      Btw, I think I’m hanging by a thread here, more like by a branch here~~!!!!

      Nnuuooo, this cliff AGAIN!!……eerrrhhhhggg!!
      Is this time not possible for Reigokai-sama to save me too~~~~

      Helup~ Helup~ is anyone there?!!
      Reigokai-sama ~! Pikli ~! Psychronia ~~~~!…..well farg it, Helup~! Satria ~! Helup~! Orca-chwan~~~~!!!

        1. Darn it, Psychronia!!
          It ain’t helping me at all, it encourage me to LET GO!! Arrghh!! You ain’t much of a help; just like Orca-chwan!!

          Helup~! Anyone~?!
          ~~~ I’m slipping~~!! Helup~!

          1. I can’t magic you up a new chapter, I’m not a miracle worker, or a Reigokai. You’re just gonna have to hold on with everything you got, I recommend hands, feet, and teeth.

      1. @psychronia no, when running from a predator you don’t have to run faster than it but be faster than the last person.

  1. Wow, he really killed her… This will have a lot more repercussions in the future. After all he just killed a god.

    Aside that, Don’t bother with Danganrompa anime of the 1st game, instead go directly and watch V3 after finishing Goodbye Despair

    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. I actually…watched the anime of the first game, before playing the game.
      This deterred me from Danganronpa for all this time… until a friend showed me gameplay. It was Phoenix Wright style, which I totally love. So I had to try it. And boy, I am glad I did.

      1. Well, since you’ve progressed from awesome logic visual novels to awesome death game logic visual novels, can I recommend the Zero Escape series?

        It’s also a death game VN with puzzle elements. The first in the series should be called 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors.

  2. soooo…. did he create like 10% of the earth’s mass to make a tiny black hole? Because thats a lot of God mass/energy to God into existence in such a short amount of time…

  3. A black hole of complete annihilation huh. That certainly leaves a somber feeling for the after effects of such a devastating attack; so I guess Mantle is actually totally gone right? Nova was turned into a calf and as far as I know Coacervate was sent back to the God’s Realm after having his water element monster body destroyed. I really do pity Mantle, but it was inevitable from the moment she lost control of her self restraint I suppose.

  4. Nooooooo! Not Mantle! NOT PERMADEATH!!! ;A;


    I really liked her…even despite the fact that she went crazy…

    All I have left for her is the faintest hope that a small sliver of her soul survived and she can come back as some sort of adorable mini-spirit in the vein of Komoe. DX

  5. Thanks for the chaps!

    Daaaaaa~ng, so that’s how strong Entropy really is … black holes are OP af.
    Makes you wonder, though, why would any of the other gods oppose him if they knew he could do that?

  6. Thanks for chapter~ Same as my previous comment on the previous chapter~ TOO MANY ASSIGNMENTS ON SUCH SHORT NOTICE! AND ALSO MORE THEATER PRACTICE? HAVE YOU NO HEART PEOPLE?!

    Well all joking aside…. I will read later~

      1. Hm? It’s My college’s project… there is one every year. My faculty always play a musical each year, and since I like musical… I auditioned.

        So… what about theater? I don’t get what ur question is… hahaha.

      2. At our professor desk , our seniors have said not to consult him or ask to grade our work or anything when there is classical music playing cause he is in a bad mood and bad grades/review usually goven when he is in a bad mood.

  7. Well… gotta admit of all the gods, mantle is the last one I expected to be devoured by the eternal darkness…

    Black hole? That is op as fuck haine, the only downside I can see is the long charge time, though I am not sure if it was because he needed to compress and tone it dwn

  8. Thanks 4 the translation!

    Yikes! Was Entropy fighting seriously when he was to be sealed? If he had that ability I would think that at least one of the basic elemental gods would have died for real in that battle.

    1. Mantle was right. Entropy is kind.

      This does bring up the question though. Haine mentions that this is used to “reset a world that isn’t favorable.”

      Does…Does that mean that back in the era of Creation, Entropy had erased failed worlds that didn’t meet his expectations like the one with humans did? Wh…What sort of standard/definition would he have for “unfavorable”?

      1. Think warhammer 40k level dystopia. Reminds me of an old anime/manga Psychic Academy where the mc says “The future of the Aura shall be decided by me and if Mu and I don’t like what we see I shall bring this world to its end”

        1. Hmm. That’s one way to look at it, but there’s no real confirmation of that, is there?

          The idea that Entropy would destroy a world because he disapproved of it at all opens up potential for something…dark.

  9. …You know, I’m starting to think that you don’t really need to be particularly connected with someone to create combined elements together. Sasae is more like a cute little squirrel-cat that’s being dragged along like a pet getting consecutive oppai-smother treatment than a hero who’s synchronizing herself with the other heroes.

    At this point, isn’t it more like, “alright, let’s do this!” and that’s it? Could it just be that nobody ever tried it before and this condition just came out of nowhere? Or perhaps, strong element users like Heroes can just control their power that well?

    Well, not that I’m complaining about seeing more combined elements. That’s pretty cool, though everything besides lava feels slightly…”off” to me.

    Creating plants? So…just creating an emulation of life out of nowhere, if not actual life? Could Water + Earth be some sort of low-key necromancy, in that case?

    Meanwhile, Earth + Light seems a bit too…specific and conditional to me. Why would their combined power overwrite golems, which is an existence that only appeared recently-after Ethereal, even. Unless it’s in itself a “golem creation” power, I guess?
    Regardless…Oi. Did they seriously just casually overwrite the authority of a god?

  11. Thanks for the chapter. I knew the moment Mantle was in the way of his attack she would be killed. The whole Tree taking in Pray Energy while letting the people stay alive in it makes me think not of the God Tree since at the end it kills people quickly but more of the Matrix movie where are laid to sleep to provide energy to the machines. I am kind of wondering what is Ethereal and what is the element it is made of?

  12. [The strongest destruction method I possess as the Dark God. This is something that is originally used in order to reset a world that isn’t favorable.

    By reducing its power to a trillion times, I get the thing that is in my hands.]
    he literally can erase the World itself.
    too bad he can’t use it against that fucker water God because they in the middle of the city.
    …. poor mantle-chan… the disappointing big boos goddess is no more…
    but you always the best disappointing Goddess after the Inflation and on 5 best girl on the series.

  13. Thanks for the double chapters!!!
    Kind of feel bad for Mantle as she just wanted peace to the world, but sadly just like all the other people with the same idea/plan it will inevitably fail like the rest. 😛
    Rule of bringing peace, don’t forcefully take away peoples freedom and thoughts or else you will get yourself in a world of pain.

  14. noooooooo !!! the Free boobies groping dryad is gone …. she havent even create the elixir from her ‘nectar’
    like other comment i also wish for her to split some of her soul and not fully use all of her soul when making that ‘Dryad’ body

  15. Thank You, Reigokai, for translating World Reformation. Cliches abound, but in some good and interesting ways. At least male lead isn’t accused of being a pervert like in a good number of other Japanese Web/light novels and their adaptations. And so I’d like to recommend to You and others a Japanese light novel of isekai genre I have found quite enjoyable:
    How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom

    Beginning is like straight out of an old computer RPG:
    But Japanese male lead isn’t of fighting type. He aimed to be a bureaucrat (or something equivalent) back in Japan, and he expected to be one in the fantasy world. Instead all the jaws hit the floor when the king declares to step down, nominate Japanese school boy to be his successor, and engage his daughter for marriage, guess to whom. I have read through 4 volumes and waiting for more. There are some wars, battles, and smaller scale fights, but Japanese “hero” is mostly bystander in those cases. Instead he excels in politics and economics. But as per usual for modern Japanese fiction, such as what we can see on this site, he is awkward and reluctant to commit to intimate relationship. But near end of volume #4 he kiss a girl. Other things of interest include harem gathered by #1 girl, revelation of ethereal equivalent, the beginning of related revolution, mad female scientist researching of it, and half-blood dragon slave maid.

  16. Light and earth… made frequency signals?… What?
    Also because of a thing known as photosynthesis, pretty dam sure water/earth was what light/earth was supposed to be.
    Guess acid or erosion was the only thing that came to my mind for water/earth.

  17. Thanks for the chapters, Reigo-senpai.

    Well, I feel bad for mantle. She was too unstable, so unstable that she misinterpreted Haine’s ideals. She just went insade and tried to go all matrix on her believers. And now Yoshiro’s the only remaining goddess because of it.

    1. Are we sure?

      Light and Darkness have opposed genders.
      Water and Fire have shared genders.
      Isn’t it possible that things balance out with Quasar also being a goddess?

      Poor Mantle either way though. She just couldn’t handle the pressure.

        1. True, but since this is a Japanese web novel, I make it a point to not assume what a character’s gender is based on pronouns.

          “Quasar” isn’t a name that really throws a gender at you, much like all the other gods, after all.

  18. Thank u always for ur great work…

    — I can’t seal, but I can erase them.
    To the depths of the darkness inside the Black Hole, that is. —
    Did it just me that still count this skill as a seal?

  19. Question is will earth magic still usable? Or someone will be born as a new earth god/goddess . it would be good if the granma ascend to that position.

  20. BOOO Mental shouldn’t have die like this, pity on her T_T The one that should have die is the shitty water god. Anyway this makes me wanna the after match episode!!

  21. Earth+Fire= Magma.
    (Well, as expected. It’s a common trope and quite powerful.)

    (One of the unison need to be a bind spell after all.)

    (Really, what the hell they do??? It’s too unclear!!)

    1. Put it this way. Light =lightning=electricity. The brain send electric signal to the body to move it. In theory , you could control a body by artificially sending electric signal. Scientists are already reserching to be used in prostethics. Same here, they send electric signal to the golems controlling them.

    1. Don’t worry she’s alive, Haine said so next chapter. After all she’s a god, an immortal eternal existence. Well it would take several millenniums, several epochs for her to be reformed and revived again. Hopefully she would learned her lesson.

  22. Thank you Reigokai, as always ~

    I’m late. This is unusual for me, but yeah, I’m late. I’ve read the chapters earlier though.

    Now hold your horses, I’m not here to save any unfortunate soul still hanging over the cliff. Nor can I help myself now.

    Right now I’m having my hands (fins?) full with work and worries of my family who are countless miles away and trapped in what seems to be the state’s biggest disaster in decades. Pantasma Namer should be well informed about this disaster since he’s in the same country. Typhoon and heavy flood, buildings collapsed, roads inaccessible, landslide, no amenities, electricity nor clean water. I coulnd’t reach my parents even when I want to so much… I wish I’m a real magical Flying Orca so that I can fly or swim there…

    Good thing that I can still contact them via phone and confirm their safety. But… water level still rising, the house is a mess, car’s a total loss, they only have few clothes with them and stranded in a hall/help centre. Help came not long ago from the Royal Navy and volunteer doctors but there’s no prospect for the immediate future. Things unchanged since Saturday and expected to go south later… I can only pray that no more heavy downpour will come anytime soon or things will get even worse.

    See, I really can’t do anything to help them. Can’t even reach them. If I can’t help myself, no way on earth can I help you guys over the cliff.

    Sorry guys. Forget about the Birthday Party. It’s cancelled. Ain’t gonna celebrate my birthday like this. Not when I’m much too worried. Maybe some other time.
    See you guys later.

    1. Thank you everyone. Thank you.

      I’ve got news that things are calming down, though the flood might last until Feb. next year. Water level is down and normal again today, roads back to normal and I guess tomorrow I can go back hometown.

      All the cleanup that needs to be done might take more than several days to finish. The damage and loss… still unaccounted. Not to mention my sister’s wedding coming up end of this month (some of the preparations literally went down the drain).

      I’m calm now. Maybe not in the best shape (mentally) but just okay.

      1. Glad to hear things getting little better and congratulations on your upcoming sisters wedding. I have being down that road being in a weak mental state right after the car wreck and head injury. But with the support of everyone I made through. We are here for you.

    2. Be brave, Willy-san! You always won within your movies! This time’s struggle should be nothing to fear because those obstacles will be overpowered as well with or without your fins! Have faith!

  23. He could have- I don’t know? Gave her a chance!?

    Oh how I really hope that she managed to survive and become a tiny fairy who will become Haine’s mascot and become someone who gains self-confidence and help beat the shit Coacervate

  24. “A believe towards the Golems that has been with her since birth.”


    Nooooo, Mantle! I refuse to believe such a lovable character died so soon! That must have been a fragment of her, that must be it!

    Thanks for the chapter!

  25. Thanks reigo for translate.
    Ok right now, mantle is dead or this is what it look like. Then with mantle death sasae hero power is gone?

  26. Haine you idiot, you just made an enemy of someone you dshouldn’t piss of.
    Mantle was a child, as children, you have to tell them the reason of why they are wrong, otherwise they will never understand. But choosing the last option, saying that there was not an alternative. You’ll suffer three times what Mantle did. This is a promise from this sorcerer.

    1. You’re just a sorcerer and even with that title ‘Bloody’ it doesn’t matter what you can do against a God especially a god that rule over darkness that can literally swoosh you out of existence. He left no choice as he even warned her to get out of the way but she stand still not knowing her fate would be sealed in that very moment.

  27. All of the 4 basic elemental God would die eventually if he destroyed the mother monsters her death just happened more quickly

  28. What i want to know is the heroes reactions to his power, Karen herself thought that they are weak(not with this words but you get the meaning) heroes compared to the shadow hero the first hero who so easily beat sasae even when 3 combined heroes couldn’t do it, after all they just saw Haine disintegrate half of a giant tree with what looked a small seed

    1. The thing is the Heroes even in combined powers are limited to what beyond they can do against a monster created by a god especially their facing a Mother Monster that give birth to many monsters.
      Sasae had the advantage against them because of her Earth element that is stronger against Light, Fire and Water element. Only Darkness, Wind and Shadow can fend it. They’re weak when it comes to affinities but slightly stronger when it comes to combined elements.

  29. Am i the only one that thinks this arc was badly written? Thinking back on it… Isn’t this whole series kinda badly written?

  30. Good riddance. Glad to see Haine get rid of the pushover turned psychopath. I hope shes stays gone. For all the crap she caused him she got what she deserved. I dont care if she was “forced” into it. Hurting others to save your own conscience is pathetic. Now he needs to do this to the fire and water gods, and maybe the wind god. We’ll see.
