WR – Chapter 173: Synchronicity

At the deep deep depths of the sea, a semi-transparent pillar was standing.

It is the Water Mother Monster, Strobi Laguna.

Created by the Water God Coacervate, it is a giant gelatin-property mass that possesses the function of infinitely giving birth to water element monsters.

The main body that is as if it were a giant pillar had several thousands of semi-transparent plates piled up. The plate that is at the very top was isolated from the rest, and by leaving itself to the sea current, it flows here and there, and in the time it is doing that, it steadily changes shape into a marine creature and becomes a water element monster.

The length of this Mother Monster is -as common of a Mother Monster- classified as one of the biggest in the world, but by hiding inside the very depths of the sea that is far bigger than it, humans have not caught sight of it for the hundred years since it was born.

After finishing its release of water element monster larvas to a certain extent, only the jellyfish-shaped core of the pillar remains, then, it itself will flow with the sea current and move to a different location for spawning.

This process has continued for a hundred years without humans knowing; the Mother of Disastrous Floods.

But it was about to reach its end.

The Strobi Laguna, that only has the function of division, gave birth to an egg.

That egg shone faintly like a pear as it drifted about in the sea current, and it soon hatched. What came out from inside the egg…had the shape of a human.

The surface of his body was transparent like that of a sea creature, but it still was a human-like body that had all extremities.

Its eyes held intelligence.

Transparent wings that looked like the fins of a fish spread from its back.

On the other hand, the main body of the Strobi Laguna steadily withered even when in the sea, and in the end, its body dissolved and disappeared.

The ultimate water element monster that was given birth with the sacrifice of its mother.

Water Demon Lord, Gabriel.

Was born at this moment.


At the Earth capital, Ishtar Blaze, there’s still the remains of what was once called ‘Great Pillar-sama’.

Normally, monsters that die would disappear without leaving a corpse, but no one suspected anything about this exception.

It must have stemmed from how out of standard Grandma Wood was.

The upper part that was swallowed by the gravity of the black hole has already disappeared. Only the lower part, that was left there at that time in order to save the people that were assimilated by it, had been removed from the attack range. Right now, there’s only a stump left and still remains in the center of Ishtar Blaze.

Below that stump, at the underground part that is buried in earth, there’s a round-shaped tuberous root surrounded by the roots that are freely running all the way down as if trying to protect it.

It had an irregular spherical shape, making it look like it was molded by hand.

But the size was that of a human.

That tuberous root began to crack as if giving birth, and from inside, a human appeared.

It looked like an old person with wrinkles all over its skin, but that wasn’t the case.

It was a human-shaped being that had all its body made of tree bark.

When that ‘human’ crept out of the earth, branches came out from his back, and leaves grew abundantly from it.

The silhouette of those branches that grew thickly from both sides were like wings.

The ultimate earth element monster that was birthed by the Earth Mother Monster that was supposed to have died.

Earth Demon Lord, Uriel.

After he flew away, the stump of the giant tree, that was thought to remain there forever, had dried at incredible speed, returned to the earth, and disappeared.

In the next morning, the people of Ishtar Blaze were surprised by its sudden disappearance.


Each Mother Monster was at a faraway place, but as if their wills had converged, they all gave birth to Demon Lords with their lives in exchange.  

Whether this was a coincidence, a natural course of events, or maybe a twist of fate; no one knew.

The Demon Lords that had been born used their divine power to fly and were heading to a certain location. And that location was the same for all the Demon Lords.

The place where the Demon Lord Gabriel and the Demon Lord Uriel landed at was a place among the mountains that was far apart from human habitat.

At that place, there was someone in the middle of its meal.

“…So you have already come. What an impatient bunch.”

Even so, the man continued eating.

What he was eating was the corpse of a bird. Piercing the neck of the bird with his teeth, he crunches it off.

The corpse of the bird was covered in flames and was burning red. It looked like it would get someone severely burned just by touching it, and yet, he continued eating as if normal.

Grabbing hold of his Mother, Phoenix, he chews it up completely.

The one having a meal was the very ultimate fire element monster that the Fire Mother Monster, Phoenix, had given birth to.

Fire Demon Lord, Michael.

In order to give birth to him, his mother had given all of its life force.

And its body was being eaten by the Fire Demon Lord.

In time, the Demon Lord Michael had finished eating all including the bones and stands up. From his back, there were burning crimson fire wings just like those of his mother.

“Is this all of us?” (Michael)

Michael looks at Gabriel and Uriel who had gathered below him.

“…Looks like there’s one more.” (Michael)

“Yeah, it is me.”

The fourth voice that could be heard with no figure in sight.

It was the voice of the Wind Demon Lord Raphael.

“Different from you guys who were born peacefully, I ended up meeting a powerful enemy right in the moment I was born, you see. Practically all of my body was destroyed.” (Raphael)

Changing each and every single cell that composes his body into insects, breaking them up, and combining them after, the Demon Lord Raphael is able to appear again.

Because of this ability, Haine and Shiva cooperated to imprison him without letting a single one of his cells escape, and erased him completely.

However, Raphael’s move for survival had already been made before all of that happened.

When the light bullet shot by the combination of Karen and Hyue connected, the head of Raphael had been blown to pieces and meat scattered about, and with his ability, it all turned to insects and returned to his body to safely regenerate.

However, at that time, there were several small insects that didn’t actually return.

Due to how weak his enemies were, he was certain of his victory, so he didn’t think there was any need to hurry and return, and a few of them were left loitering around.

Before they all returned, Haine had arrived, and the main body of Raphael was destroyed.

Raphael lost because of underestimating them, yet ironically, he survived due to underestimating them.

“It was a terrifying enemy. He was using a power that didn’t fall into any of the categories earth, fire, wind, water, and light. He will definitely become the biggest obstacle in creating our desired monster paradise.” (Raphael)

The voice of the bodiless Raphael.

Right now, the several small flies are his very being, and due to them being so small, it was impossible to catch them with the naked eye.

“Stop with the lame excuses. What an unsightly fellow you are.” (Uriel)

“Right. Losing against a mere human, looks like the Wind Demon Lord was quite the failure. If trash like this was born in exchange of its own life, the Wind Mother was probably not that big of a deal either.” (Gabriel)

The tone of Uriel and Gabriel towards Raphael was filled with contempt.

Even if they are fellow Demon Lords, fellow monsters, they were seeds that were born from completely different creators.

The only thing that is binding them is their prejudice towards humans.

The four of them had the same objective of eradicating humans and bringing up their own race into supremacy. However, the other three aside from themselves were enemies that are fighting for that spot. They are by no means allies.

And yet, what is the reason of them gathering in one place like this?

“We are comrades.” (Michael)

Shaking its fire wings, the Fire Demon Lord Michael spoke.

“You all must have seen it too. You must have seen it the moment your own mother reached understanding; the moment the thing called self-consciousness was gained. That being’s shining figure.” (Michael)

Uriel and Gabriel fall silent.

Raphael may be bodiless right now, but it could be felt that he had fallen silent as well.

“That Being said: ‘We are the ones who should become the next rulers of this surface world. Destroy the foolish and greedy humans. In order to grasp this world in your hands, you should work together’. If you are going to go against that Being, I will kill you.” (Michael)

Michael’s fist was pushed out.

“…I understand. I don’t have any intentions of going against that Being.” (Uriel)

“We were born for that sake after all. Let’s all get along.” (Gabriel)

“In order to challenge that man again, I need the help of you guys.” (Raphael)

The fist that Michael pushed out was met with two other fists, and in the end, one small fly had landed on top of them.

“”””All for the sake of eradicating humans.””””

Earth, water, fire, and wind; the heart of these four Demon Lords overlapped.

“First, let’s gather strength. We have barely hatched out, so our strength is lacking. Our body is still not completed yet. Especially Raphael. Until you regain your body, you won’t be able to do anything flashy.” (Michael)

Just as Michael said, the Demon Lords that had just been born have taken the appearance of humans and their appearance was that of children.

Their height was small and their face was childish. Just like the Raphael before he was defeated by Kuromiya Haine.

In other words, they will grow from now on.

“We will hide and wait for time to pass. In time, it will begin. Let’s wait until the prelude of destruction. At that time, that Being will most likely descend as well. That Being that has only allowed us to hear its voice, will definitely let us see its figure once everything is over.” (Michael)

“Right.” (Uriel)

“I am looking forward to it.” (Gabriel)

“Before then, I will make sure to vindicate my honor.” (Raphael)

The one who gathered all four Demon Lords and guided them.

“…The Demon Lord among Demon Lords; the Great Demon Lord, Lucifer-sama.” (Michael)

    1. Praise the Lord! For your payers have been heard! The next chapter cued for translation just so happens to be Tsuki Ga Michibiku Isekai Douchuu! (I wanted to try it, tehe).

      1. I don’t think Inflation would lie, but it’s possible she made something that “wasn’t really a Mother Monster”. Something to just keep up appearances with the other gods without actually releasing it out into the world.

        Her superior level and the different nature of her creation would explain why Lucifer is implied to be more powerful and sentient compared to even the other demon lords.

  1. Thanks for the chapter, Reigo-senpai.

    Well… looks like I need to take back the comment I made 3 chapters ago. Demon lords are gonna be a template. And… the author named them after arc angels?

    1. Well, why not?

      If I have the story right, Lucifer is pretty Demon Lord-esque himself and part of his whole thing was that he corrupted other angels into falling with him.

  2. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    So, who made Lucifer? Since there are no Light or Darkness mother monsters. Is it the water god in disguise? Or is it someone from outside. Or something else entirely?

    1. Thinking deeply philosophically about it, it could be one of two things: either [of shadows] or [of light]

      Entropy/Haine hadn’t had time to create a being strong enough to embody the “mother monster” concept.
      I would think Inflation/Yoroshiro might have botched this. Just think: she had manipulated the power of light to create a pseudo-absence of it, the inverse [shadow]. We saw how powerful that was. What’s not to say that power itself in the Dark Country manifested itself into SOMETHING while our poor hero of shadow brainwashed herself to become Entropy. Probably born out of all that malice and hate, you could get this.

      This is more likely if the author did his homework. Lucifer was the first angel in the myths, and due to pride refused to serve a lesser being, staging a rebellion. At the end, he was [cast out of the light].
      Using that, having Lucifer being a [shadow] element makes sense.

      However the biggest unknown is the [ether]. Perhaps that tech was something through the meddling of a god that had descended from somewhere else. How this tech comes into play in the future isn’t something I can tell at the moment. This is the only variable I see that can have a major impact on the plot.

      1. Lucifer is most likely something related to the Underworld Country, as the Demon Lords reffer to humans as greedy, and the Country would be the place which suffered the most from human greed and jealously.
        It might even be Doraha herself.

        1. I have being kind of thinking maybe that the Lucifer that was mention might sort of a failed attempted by the Light Goddess to create the Shadow Hero. Sort of like the whole cloning thing in so series like in Strike Blood vol. 1. And that this Lucifer was abounded and now is out for revenge. Sort of like Rau Le Creuset in Gundam Seed who was failed clone and decided to take the whole world down with him.

          1. Probably gonna be the shadow or light demon lord. From some of the novels I have read before there were some Gods who splits off themselves I think Inflation due to her love and hatred towards Entropy and the Humans may have splitted herself or something close to that and her splitted part has taken her hatred since she doesnt hate entrophy or the humans when Entrophy met her. And her Hatred self created this great demon lord to destroy humans since she is also one of the poles which is stronger than the four base gods she may have the power to alter the demons giving them intellegience but thats just my theory we’ll probably see as the series continues.

  3. Dofugah? A third post?

    I thought I climbed the cliff and now I’m faced with an expansive plain…followed by another cliff. Hmm.

    Anyway, you worked hard, Reigokai. Thank you, and well done!

  4. Thanks for the chapter!
    So there are actually 5 demon lords out of the 5 elements known to the populace of the story. Of course Lucifer should represent light from the name given, but the big questions is……………….. How was that demon lord born in the first place? I have a theory that the demon lord somehow influenced the other mother monsters bring forth the other demon lords through those past 100 years though it’s just a guess.

    P.S.: Harem of heroes has been established for Haine in the previous chapter huh? ┬┴┬┴┤ ͜ʖ ͡°) ├┬┴┬┴

    1. Could have been a byproduct of the energy Inflation poured into breaking Haine’s seal, maybe a monster was born to weaken the other Gods, and their seal on the Darkness…?

    2. I just hope that Lucifer is not Doraha or Yorishiro that will be really sad(Both have light element and have reason for want to kill the humans) or worst Yorishiro did make a Mother monster but probably she tried to destroy it and failed.

    3. It could be that the 5th demon lord Lucifer has something to do with the destruction the ancient civilization that Inflation created but who knows.

  5. Hmmm it’s can’t be the mc, it’s mostly likely not The Light goddess unless this is all part of a major plan so that the church of Darkness is formed as they will need his powers to stop them, especially if it’s a light demon Lord. Or it could be smth else hmmmm?

    1. Either Inflation made it by accident, in a fit of rage towards the others; while trying to free Entropy; or Haine’s black giant turned into a Demon Lord when exposed to the clash of the three heroes powers.

  6. who knows. lucifer might be even a human entity with maxed all elements or at least high quantity wish evolved after looking the stupidity of humans =3 << thats pretty normal in stories of these. well knowing raphael still alive already makes me want to quit this novel.seriously i cannot only see his escape as to have a character t write when he doesnt know what to do later -_-

  7. I’m late, but lucifer?
    The morning star?
    That sounds awfully like a light monster… So whats the probability of UV radiation being light monsters that slowly but surely kill everyone by cancer?
    Maybe Inflatio is that much of a Yandere and literally don’t want to have a single living thing to share Entropy with.

  8. Then there’s the possibility that Lucifer was born before the other gods even made any monsters, maybe he was made by whatever made ethereal…Inflation told the other gods that she discovered prayer energy, maybe she is also the one to invent monsters, she made a simple one, and told the others the process?

  9. Lucifer could’ve been born from human’s experiment with light element.

    Or … Inflation’s grief during Entrophy’s 1600 years seal gave birth to Lucifer.

    I don’t know what to expect anymore.

  10. Thanks for the chapter. We read about there so called “All for the sake of eradicating humans” phrase I figure it should sound more like “For Blue and Pure World”. Sort of like the Blue Cosmos keep saying in Gundam Seed to express their Natural Supremacy against the Coordinators, having sound more Monster Supremacy. Lucifer more than likely the the Demon Lord of the Light monsters, chances are the Light Goddess made 1 to give to the other Element Gods and Goddess so they can make 1 so it would go according to her plan. It might be that the Shadow hero is Lucifer since she has strong affection towards her and she is powerful to take down the Earth hero and he combine golems.

  11. Thanks for the chapter.

    Well obviously Lucifer is gonna be the Light Demon Lord given his name and the other Demon Lord’s name representing the Archangels’ elements. And it’ll be the only Demon Lord that Haine will have trouble against.
    I’ve been wondering about this ever since Haine made the dark giant as his first monster. Why did he just make more Darkness monster to exterminate other monsters? They’ll have the elemental advantage to combat their lack of numbers seeing as there’s no light monsters at the moment and it’s not like all monsters will exterminate humans as that was just the orders they received by the gods who created them and we’ve seen that the dark giant was good despite Haine driving it in a sense.

    1. Haine will not have any trouble with the other elements, he is also able to win against Inflation. We were informed of that in the epilogue of the previously when inflation talk to water god.

      1. He won’t have trouble against Inflation if he disregards his surroundings since only his Black Hole can beat Inflation and that has negative consequences on the surrounding environment and people if he doesn’t properly regulate it’s power which takes time to focus which is another weakness to that move.

    2. that is a good point that the author missed out on. Haine could have propped up the existence of an “ancient god” with shadow monsters that never attack humans, but kill other monsters.

    3. he talked about it in an inner monologue in a previous chap.
      he said he refused to use monster to resolve his problems because it would mean he is exactly like the others gods

      1. I don’t see how he’ll be like the other gods when his monsters would be helping humanity and it’s kinda contradicting when he already made one monster to help him when the water god put him into a pickle so why not make some now since he can’t do this alone and they are in need of more firepower or at least defense against these demon lords which his Dark Matter is perfect for.

      1. a panicked yorishiro that crying because she was caught like cheating with someone else….. i wonder how tearful her face will look….
        on a side note…. the Demon Lord of fire that eat the mother…. well….. like Mio said…. Phoenix is the bird that cooked itself… no wonder Michael is having a meal after birth

        1. I was imagining the scene of Yorishiro trying to clear up a misunderstanding under two scenarios:
          1) The affair misunderstanding which comes to mind or,
          2) The Yobai (I think I used the right term) Yorishiro undertook and secretly had with Haine while he was asleep misunderstanding.
          (Though I wouldn’t put it past Yorishiro to have attempted, or will try to attempt in the future).
          Either way I think it’s still an amusing scene to imagine. (I’m starting to wonder if there’s any fanfic now with all the different possible scenarios that come to mind).

  12. Thanks for the chapter.
    I have to say that I’m loving how this story is developing. Normally – in the stories I read – the demon lord is just simply there or has various reasons for uniting demons (mostly political or ethical), but I quite like how the Demon Lords were born, and what their purpose is. It just feels more tangible to me. But Lucifer huh, now that’s a very curious mystery. I wonder if – by some miraculous coincidence – Doraha or Inflation are somehow connected to Lucifer, it can’t be entropy since he was sealed for 1,600 years, and who knows what happened to Doraha during the time she was Shadow Entropy. Either way I like this plot development.

    1. It might be Entrophy’s worshipper’s prayer energy that has nowhere to go and evolves into Lucifer.

      No… it has to be !
      I’m betting 1000 Internet on this theory !

          1. Just so the terms are clear, I also win if the Underground Country or Doraha are directly related because Inflation had a hand in setting all those up.

            You’ll win if it was prayer energy or anything else meant for Entropy but never really reached him. I’ll also count stray energy from Inflation’s attempt to directly unseal Entropy as your win.

          2. Agreed.

            Then, how many internet do you have with you now?
            I have exactly 998 internet, plus 2 (full size) bar of Snickers. If you don’t want the Snickers I’ll add 2 more internet tomorrow.

          3. I will also accept Snickers.

            I have 1136 Internet, but 200 is already committed to the “First Punchcard Cookie Fund”, so I can’t really spend that until the end of the year, assuming nobody punches their card in all the way. Those cookies are delicious, but the price is equally steep.

          4. Now, now. Firstly, you sure won’t with that attitude.

            Secondly, there’s always next year. The new cards use these fun little Death Star stamp illustrations instead of just punching in holes.
            The first one is a stamp by itself, the second one requires two stamps that cover half of it, and the newest one is divided into four quarter stamps.

            And this one is just a rumor, but I hear there are going to be events where you can also get stamps without being First too. Something about holiday oneshots.

          5. It’s a rule of mine to keep a bit running as long as possible.

            I’ve been trying to make a habit of planting “callback seeds” to spring at the most unexpected moment too.

          6. It might be that it that Lucifer was created by Inflation with both her pray and Entrophy’s pray energy.

  13. Bringer of Light or Prince of Darkness, I wonder…

    Plot twist: its element is really ethereal or something and instead of a God’s mother monster it’s a product of years of human experimentation with water god’s machinations as the impetus.

    seem legit enough

  14. and so this is the genesis of every staple demon lord+hero stories,started from creation,civilization and god’s interference . ending up in evolution and gives birth to another living beings.

  15. Hi everyone. This is my first time posting something (even though i have been here for a while).

    First of all, thanks Raigokai for all your translations (including todays). Great fan of the novel and your translations, i have seen few so passionate and consistent as you. Great Work!!! And Thanks A Lot!!! But remember to have moderation.

    Now, to the next part. I wanted to comment something that crosed my mind, but have seen noone (from the coments I have seen) commenting about.

    Do you think there will be a time jump/lapse here? or at least on the next chapters?

    Since the demon lords are gona hide and grow (not just in power but also into adults) I dont find that to possibly happen in just a few months, so i belive that there will be a time jump comming soon. So, if there would be one I belive it might be of around 4 to 6 years, since i think that 3 or lower would be to short to be worth the work of making it happen and more than 9 would be too much of a time lapse (specially since the heroes tend to be young girls), maybe 7 or 8 years could be an option, but i think it would be streching it. Making a time lapse also helps to continue an interesting story, not just to help the villans grow in power but also the heroes, and to place more interesting interactions between the main group of characters. Since a lot of time has happen (a lot of time that we dont know of), it would be placed to good use to re-establish the relashionship and personalities of the characters, seeing more mature or at least growp-up versions of them (im curious how will sasae grow, with that “dark” side of her and all) and how they have been living and behaving for the past years. I belive it would be a time laps since unless some other major thing were to happen in the time that the demon-angels will be growing, i dont thing there is much worth in the story to write all that happens during that time.

    Well thats just a thoung that passed through my mind, and i wanted to see if others also though or belive that this could happen. Some might think that its no good to do time lapses but it could very well happen and i think its an interesting event to see.

    And there might be poeple that have already read the raw version, so they might confirm that im totaly wrong, but it was an entertaining comment to write, so no regrets.

    Well this was my first comment ever, but i might place more in the future, at least to thanks raigo. I would like to know what you guys think about it, but for the time being, I take my leave. Good night and good bye **starts flying to the horizon**
    **Flies to close to the sun and falls down in the form of a giant ball of fire**


      Well hello~ Joking aside… A time lapse huh… I personally don’t want to be any timelapse here. I want to see their struggles first hand without any annoying flashbacks or something like that after all~

      And a quick note… don’t play with fire… or in your case don’t play with the sun… she’s too HOT for you~!

    2. Hello. Welcome.

      It’s a good idea and I also think that we might see time skip in the novel. Maybe sometimes after the climax or just before a new arc.

      Why are you flying towards the sun?

      *ties N-tto with tight cables and pull towards black hole*

    3. Eeey! Welcome.

      Rather than a multi-year timeskip, I could see a couple of repeated month-long timeskips. My thought process is that Haine and the Hero Alliance are going to be actively searching for the Mother Monsters, so skipping over years of nothing would make them seem bad at their duties.

      More likely is that they encounter small hints of disaster and solve mini-incidents or the individual Heroes undergo personal character arcs to prepare them for the big battle. These sorts of things can all burn through time plenty.

      Alternatively, we might go through some sort of “Humanity Unification” arc. That’s bound to take a lot of time and energy as well.

  16. Earth, fire, wind, water, and heart? Is Lucifer a blue skinned man with green hair? Do the Archangels summon him by saying “Let our powers combine?”

    If so, are you sure that translates to Lucifer and not Captain Planet?

    (That is a joke).

  17. It could be left over energy from the fallen light/ shadow form that manifested as a monster. Shadow is the one thing that could consume all of the other elements besides darkness. The true origin of how monsters were invented could stem from Doreha fall into depravity. The dark giant never received orders to attack humans. If it did become a Demon Lord, there would be no place for it.

  18. Didn’t think my hope would be answered Raph lives and if “Lucifer” is what I think it is a light attribute monster then… please tell me that wasn’t Yorishiro/Inflation and Doraha please save us

      1. Oh hey~ Appleseed~ It’s been so long since I last time watch this someitmes boring anime~ Well pretty normal for a 7 years old watching Appleseed… Too much for my young mind back then!

      1. I’m done with exam last Monday! I’m barely alive! My hp after that was in the red. I slept through the rest of the day like a log… a log who wakes up periodically to check emails and read!

          1. OHO! So you are an adult then? I always assumed that everyone here is youthlings who are at the peak of their youth!

            Discounting me who does not have any blinding youth moment to speak of… oh the irony…

          2. I assure you, we’re all children at heart.

            At some point, a man or woman must choose to exit their tutorial area. From that day on, they stop getting older and start leveling up every year instead.

          3. No one does. The enemies are cute and the plotline is light-hearted here.

            But satisfying challenges and good loot are all ahead, so most people move on eventually.

          4. I am adult and still enjoy watching anime, reading manga and LN. I pretty much got into anime because of my computer teacher in high school. He was into Hayao Miyazaki films and he got me into them. And after I watch Princess Mononoke I pretty much into anime. But my 1st that watch was the series Unico that was on old tape that my mom had for a VCR I watch those 2 movies so many without happen to realize it was anime. It was pretty much the same when I watch Robotech and Voltron I was thought they were cartoons then later on I learn they were anime.

          5. I wish I could find that VHS tape of Unico movies. I learned when they made and broadcast that the 1 who was in charge of the Eng. dub made sure not to sale this on VHS. So, if I could find them I can pirate off them a sale them. When I got the Voltron and Robotech on DVD I later learn that a lot of the content was taking out so it kind of made me sad to learn there were more scenes in there was not allowed for kids. Sort of like the shower scene of Lynn Minmay in Robotech or a lot of the death scenes of characters in Voltron. But it recently bought Princess Mononoke on blu ray and watched it again.

          6. I dont really have any memory of watching any show with a VHS. I had seen the player though, it was all black and bulky… or at least that was what it looked like to me when I was a kid. My father also have those HUGE VHS tapes… I don’t know what is inside them since there no pyaer to play them anymore haha… I’m so curious.

          7. I vaguely recall a childhood where I would watch Videotapes of movies and some overseas cartoon/anime that were probably pirated.

            …D*mmit, now I’m re-reminded of that one Henshin anime I never got a chance to finish and don’t know the name of.

          8. I remember my summer vacations that I spent more time watch VHS reruns such as cartoons and movies and such since I live in Rural area back then.

          9. Me too! I watched a lot of pirated anime before!!!

            And the best moment that I still remember clearly was the time when my father bought/were given a full set of the original Neon genesis Evangelion anime subbed disks! Gosh so nostalgic!!!

          10. I understand. My mom no longer has a VHS player she pretty much switch to Blu-ray or DVD’s. I know they sale some on eBay and you might find a VCR player at Goodwill or any other donation store. I heard that there was 1 time some store offering to take all of your recorded VCR tape and put it on DVD back then, but I not so sure they do it anymore. Of course there was ton of tapes that was thrown away because they have being used up or giving to Goodwill so I am not so sure I will be able to find. Who knows there might be someone there who put the eng. dub movies on the web somewhere.


          Or rather, I’m finally done with this stressful semester, so I can finally fall back into this series. 😀

          Time to binge! …After I return my rental textbooks.

      2. Wow.. what a long conversation we have here. Talking about VHS?

        I remember those ~ Me and my dad used to rent them and watch it at home (I was 10-ish years old that time). We rent movies mostly and more often anime such as Dragonball, Sailormoon, Zenki, etc.

        The VHS were quite… advance in terms of time of release. Meaning that I get to watch the latest episode from overseas rather than the one played weekly on t.v.
        The downside is that it only has chinese or japanese subs. I persevered with it though.

        Eh ? Am I old now ?

        1. My VHS tapes that I rented back then were pretty much all american cartoons. Such Transformers, Ghostbusters, and Go Bots. Princess Mononoke was my 1st anime that I bought on VHS. And then I bought the 1st Pokemon movie on VHS then after that every anime was bought on DVD but now I buy them on Blu ray.

          1. That reminds me. I had the most roundabout, awkward experience with cartoons as a child.

            My local Blockbuster didn’t have the best selection, and my family lived in a more foreign-populated residential area, so I ended up growing up with American Cartoons, translated and redubbed in other languages in other countries, then pirated from those countries and brought back to the U.S. to watch with English subtitles.

            I grew up watching the Gargoyles in Mandarin and that one Henshin series in Spanish.

          2. My blockbuster did not have any anime until maybe when I was close to starting High School. I now in the process of collecting the entire Gargoyles series.

  19. Yorishiro didn’t create a monster, apparently. So it must have come from Doraha. Lucifer means the bringer of light so it seems proper.

  20. So Angel names in the bible huh and this ones really tinges of fallen.
    This Demon Lord Lucifer sounds like came from 6 guesses:
    1. From Water God Coacervate?
    2. From Darkness?
    3. From Light?
    4. From Shadow?
    5. From a combination of light and darkness?
    6. Or an outside party beyond the 4 base elements and the Two Poles.

    1. I thought that even without human prayers anymore he’ll change his divine faith to being of those sentient monsters after they occupied the world. Even though he created the Church and made religion out of him, he couldn’t care less about the humans, he hate and despised them so he’ll do something abomination again even he know he’s opposing Entropy.

  21. fire : michael
    water : gabriel
    earth : uriel
    wind : raphael
    light&their leader : lucifer
    as gbf fan i think we just need to wait for dark element bahamut to skyfall all of them

  22. New comer here.
    Have been reading your work from the very first chapter till now. It took a few days to do but all is worth it.
    Your translation works is superb!

  23. Better late than never!

    Wow. I was expecting the other Mother Monsters to move soon, but not at the same time and not including Grandma Wood. Even Raphael’s survival could be half-anticipated.

    Speaking of which, that’s kinda bad news that news of Haine reached an absolute enemy. Now they can anticipate him. …Or is it actually good news? If Raphael ever encounters him again, Haine will probably be something of a trauma.

    Now on to the real concern. Clearly, their synchronized birth was not a coincidence. Heck, it’s possible not even the Mothers’ sentience was a coincidence. All signs point to this Lucifer fellow causing everything to happen. The natural questions that follow are “who” and “why”.

    Signs seem to point to it being another divine being. Could sub-god angel-type beings exist? Or is there actually an eighth god? A foreign, invading god? It seems pretty obvious his goal is to usurp the gods of this world by killing off the prayer-giving humans, but that’s all I’ve got.

    Oh, and there’s probably going to be a thematic thing where:
    All the Heroes combined with their bonds of affection > All the Demon Lords combined with their begrudging cooperation
