WR – Chapter 180-181: Enquiry about the previous generation

“Fuwa~, Yorishiro-sama be in fire-dasu! Her political conflict spirit be showing its full color-dasu!”

Is what the earth hero, Gonbee Sasae-chan says as she directs a gaze of admiration towards Yorishiro……Hm?

“Why is Sasae-chan here? She wasn’t here until a moment ago?!” (Haine)

“What ya saying, Haine-niichan? I arrived together with Doraha-san and Yorishiro-sama-dasu yo.” (Sasae)

“Yes, Haine-sama.” (Doraha)

Now that I look properly, even Doraha was standing at her side.

Leaving aside Doraha who has completely become an attendant of Yorishiro, why is Sasae-chan also together with Yorishiro?

“I will explain it, Haine-sama.” (Doraha)

It looks like Doraha will be taking that job.

“At the previous incident in Rudras Metropolis, there was apparently something that meshed well between Yorishiro-sama and Sasae-san regarding the treatment of the captured people, and are now hitting it off.” (Doraha)


“‘I have found something shining deep inside of Sasae-san’, is what Yorishiro-sama said and decided that she will be inheriting her scheming abilities. We were about to open a study session with Sasae-chan. At that moment, we heard that the hero Ates had appeared.” (Doraha)

Wait a second there.

Sasae-chan is already being taught by the grandma that is said to be the strongest earth hero in history. And you are telling me that, on top of that, Yorishiro will be teaching her scheming?

Are you planning on creating a brutal and demonic superhuman?!

And at that moment, Yorishiro and Sasae-chan had begun talking.

“Sasae-chan, let’s do a review of today. What is the motto of the Light Church?” (Yorishiro)

“‘Forget about inconvenient things’-dasu!” (Sasae)

No good. She is already beginning to get infected, into the demonic Sasae-chan!!


Well, let’s leave that problem for later. Right now, we have to concentrate on a more direct matter.

“By the way, Sasae-chan, can you please help repairing the wall that the previous heroes destroyed?” (Haine)

“That be super easy-dasu. Using the rubble, fill in the holes and…[Combine]! Just like new-dasu!” (Sasaed)

How convenient.

“Then, let’s talk about the important thing. About the current and previous heroes having a match.” (Haine)

“Yes?” (Yorishiro)

“Can they win?” (Haine)

Honestly speaking, in this kind of matches, there’s the need to have the confidence of saying that in 10 matches, you can win 10 times.

The one who wins will be in the right, so if Ates and the other previous heroes win, the Hero Alliance will dissolve and the reconciliation of the five churches would also go back to square one.

On the other hand, if the current heroes were to win, it would mean that the talk about the Hero Alliance will continue to stand. All Founders have accepted it, so it means that by fighting, more acceptance will be gained.

Putting it bluntly, there’s little profit and big risk.

“The previous heroes are already retired people, right? In that case, their peak time should have passed already, and the current heroes should be the stronger ones, right?” (Haine)

“…Heroes are the face of the church.” (Yorishiro)

Yes, I have heard that many times.

“As the representative of the church, they help in creating a better image, and the heroes must be strong and elegant no matter the time. Because of that, all heroes are beautiful girls and are chosen to be around their teens.” (Yorishiro)

I look around the place.

Karen-san, Mirack, Celestis, Sasae-chan, Hyue; the average age should be around 14. That’s also because Sasae-chan is bringing down the average by herself though.

“But there will be a time when looks and fighting power decay. The church has the tendency of having someone take over when the hero has surpassed their growth peak before she messes up. So, the heroes normally retire when they are 20-22 years old. At latest, it would be 25. The heroes that have come here today were around that age too.” (Yorishiro)

It is true that Ates, Kyouka, and Sarasa said that they were the previous generation heroes, but in terms of age, they simple had that adult charm in them and were still oozing with youth.

“There’s actually more heroes that have gotten stronger after retiring than the contrary. Those three surely fall in that category. Even by just having a glance at them, I could tell that the aura they had was not that of someone who had forgotten about battle.” (Yorishiro)


At worst, doesn’t that mean that they might be stronger than the current heroes?

Teenagers versus adults; thinking about it normally, the adults win in body build and the amount of experience gained.

There’s the need for more time before we are able to add ‘decay’ in the victory factors.

“In general, that’s how it would go. Now, the problem will be with the individuals though…” (Yorishiro)

“…My Sis, Abi Kyouka…” (Mirack)

As if cutting into the words of Yorishiro, Mirack begins speaking.

“Is said to be the strongest disciple of my master Enou.” (Mirack)

The current leader of the Fire Church, Enou-san who is famous for his ‘let there be hot-bloodedness’, was a General in the Ignis Militant corps.

In his days when he led the Ignis Militant corps, he also guided several fighters and raised them to be strong or even more than that.

The Mirack that is standing before us is also a disciple of his.

That’s why she calls the previous fire hero as Sis.

“Sis Kyouka was someone who had excelling talent. Master also acknowledged that talent and placed more effort in his teachings with her. Master, who has now become the current Founder, is thoroughly holding back the ones against the Hero Alliance, but the reason he is unable to do that with Sis Kyouka is due to the circumstances I previously stated.” (Mirack)

“You are saying that he can’t do anything against his cute disciple?” (Haine)

“What’s with that? Isn’t that favoritism?” (Celestis)

The disruption that Celestis mixed in ended with no reaction.

“B-But Mirack-chan was also chosen as the fire hero, so you shouldn’t lose in talent…” (Karen)

“Did you forget already, Karen? I didn’t have talent from the very beginning. That’s why I had no choice but to cover for it with effort. Straining effort that even made me forget my friendship with you.” (Mirack)

She probably remembered a bitter past, Mirack made a self-deprecating smile.

“The reason I was able to become a hero was because Sis Kyouka lost to the Fire Cow Phalaris and retired. I was simply the only one who fit the bill for successor, that’s all there is to it. Moreover, there’s no doubt that Sis Kyouka has trained harshly in order to vindicate for her defeat against the Fire Cow. There’s no way she is weaker than in those days.” (Mirack)

She has talent and puts in effort as well huh.

But the most serious matter is that Mirack has a complex regarding her senior Kyouka. Kyouka and Mirack are disciples of the same master.

In a way, a senior might be an existence that has mixes of respect, fear, deep affection, and hatred that surpass that of their master.

“The previous water hero, Ra Sarasa, is a nasty woman.” (Celestis)

Celestis speaks next.

“She is a by-the-book water hero, and it is exactly because I am doing something unconventional that she sees me as an enemy.” (Celestis)

It would actually be as if Celestis herself was screaming: ‘let me be your enemy’.

“It has been an unwritten rule that the water hero should marry into a big merchant family, that has influence and assets, when she retires. It is a political marriage in order to tie the church with the financial world. Sarasa as well, she married a prominent foreign trader in Hydra Ville and is enjoying a celebrity life. That’s probably why she is looking down on me even more.” (Celestis) <Oh, so Celestis called her a gold-digger not a widow, got it. Fixed!>


Is it my imagination that I saw a faint stiffening in her expression when she was speaking?

At any rate, next it would be about the previous light hero, Sunnysol Ates…

“Let me explain about her.” (Yorishiro)

  • 181: Ominous remains of light

“The motto of the Light Church is ‘forget about inconvenient things’. Well, that was half-joking, but if there’s a person that embodies this statement, there’s no doubt it would be Ates-san.” (Yorishiro)

Is what Yorishiro said as if it was a joke, but it didn’t sound like much of a joke.

On the other hand, the current light hero, Karen-san, was simply staying silent and listening.

“There’s probably people who have heard rumors already, but I obtained this position of Light Founder by…kicking down the previous Light Founder, my father. My father, in his time as a Founder, tainted his hands with dishonest actions, and in order to have him take responsibility, I had him retire.” (Yorishiro)

I feel like I have heard about that before.

“I will be omitting what dishonest actions he did, as it would be a scandal for the Light Church, but those dishonest acts had the hero at that time, Ates-san, involved. In the time I took the place of my father, I had her make a decision.” (Yorishiro)

“Decision?” (Haine)

“Step back by her own volition, or have someone else take her title. She chose retirement without a single moment of hesitation. She wouldn’t be a hero anymore, but with this, there will be no more sins added, and on top of that, she will still receive the many compensations that retired heroes receive. She had calculated this.” (Yorishiro)

“Meaning that, the hero Ates is that kind of woman?” (Haine)

“That’s right. She is a woman that doesn’t act unless she has calculated it minutely. In that sense, it can be said that she is the complete contrary of Karen-san who has moved purely with her natural virtue.” (Yorishiro)

“Ah, that’s…” (Mirack)

“I understand it completely…” (Celestis)

The description of Karen-san that Yorishiro gave out had Mirack and Celestis nod immediately.

“In the time she retired, she must have had a path to make a big turnabout by facing me, and yet, Ates-san didn’t take that risk. When the winning chance is low, she obediently accepts defeat, and lived a life of obscurity until now.” (Yorishiro)

“Then, the reason why she moved now was because…” (Haine)

She judged that this is the time to do a counterattack?

“I wonder. But we have to be careful about her. This very situation of several former heroes taking action might be the picture she was trying to draw.” (Yorishiro)

Have the old conventions preservation faction of the churches as her allies, put them together, and use them as her own fighting force. Is she trying to defeat the current political powers and make herself take that place by using that fighting force?

If that is the truth, Ates is utilizing the situation in a frighteningly skilfull way.

“Ates-san herself has, in a sense, a clear head for politics after all. The title of hero was simply a step in order to obtain political power. She is a woman that would do anything in order to obtain political power -as long as it doesn’t endanger herself.” (Yorishiro)

“I…don’t want to lose!”

The one who shouted as if wringing out her voice was Karen-san. Those eyes of hers were burning with the light of resistance.

“I don’t want to lose to someone like that. A person that only uses the title of hero for her own sake…I definitely don’t want to lose!” (Karen)

“B-But…there’s no need to get so worked up about it, don’t you think?” (Celestis)

Maybe because she was overawed by Karen-san who was burning in anger to unexpected levels, Celestis made a dry laugh.

“It has been decided that it will be a fight of the current heroes vs the previous heroes. The ones that came from the previous generation today were only the light, fire, and water heroes; but in this side, we have the earth, water, fire, wind, and light heroes -all five heroes are gathered. Just by going at it normally, we would be winning by numbers.” (Celestis)

Now that she puts it that way, she does have a point.

It is still unknown how this match will be done, but there’s no way higher numbers will become a disadvantage.

“Of course-dasu! If it be a war, it of course be Gonbee Sasae! I’ll be doing my best-dasu!” (Sasae)

“I will cover your backs.” (Hyue)

Sasae-chan and Hyue seem to have plenty enough motivation.

In a team battle, the highest bottleneck would be the quality of the teamwork, but in that point, there’s nothing to worry about with these girls. The bond that these girls have tempered through many battles will become their strongest weapon.

In that case, the strength in numbers will only be an advantage for us.

“Uhm…what about me?” (Haine)

I tried raising my hand.

“You are not an official hero, so you are an outsider this time around, right? Just step back!” (Celestis)

“That’s right. Relying on you all the time would affect us as heroes. I will show you that I can defeat my senior with my own hands!” (Mirack)

And I was bluntly rejected.

It looks like this fight will be purely of heroes against heroes.

But even so, the direness in the face of Yorishiro was not falling off.

“But, will it really go so smoothly? We are talking about Ates-san here. There’s the possibility that she has already made a move with the Earth and Wind Church…” (Yorishiro)

Is she implying that the previous earth and wind heroes will also be appearing?

“The previous earth hero, you say? Uhm, I don’t think I would be able to defeat that Oba-san though…” (Celestis)

Is what Celestis says as she trembles.

She must be talking about the Oba-san of Sasae-chan that is now the Earth Founder.

That Oba-san was called the ‘Taker by the roots’ in her young days and is considered a legendary class hero.

“Ba-chan be the hero seven generations back-dasu yo. The previous earth hero be my cousin, Yoneko-neechan-dasu!” (Sasae)

“Heh~, what kind of person is she? This is just in case but, is she good at fighting?” (Haine)

“She married last year and retired-dasu. I be selected as her replacement-dasu. But if I remember correctly, Yoneko-neechan be expecting her third child to be born soon, so I don’t think she can swing around a weapon-dasu!” (Sasae)



“Eh? Wait a moment. You said that she married last year, and yet, she is expecting a third baby? The math doesn’t match here though?” (Haine)

“That be the production capability of Ishtar Blaze, be what Ba-chan said-dasu!” (Sasae)

Does that also fall in the category of production?!

Well, there’s also the possibility that it is simply Sasae-chan’s misunderstanding. That chance is a lot higher than any others, so let’s just leave it aside for now.

“Hyue, what about your place? …….But well, we all already know who the previous wind hero was huh. The Wind Founder, Toreido Shiva-dono.” (Haine)

That’s right. The Wind Church not that long ago had Shiva be the Wind Founder as well as the wind hero.

But because of the fight with the Wind Demon Lord Raphael, Shiva received damage in his whole body that was impossible to recover from and had to retire; and so, his little sister Hyue became the new hero.

Shiva who is now concentrating fully on being a Founder is not in a state where he can fight anymore, and most of all, he wouldn’t take the side opposing the Hero Alliance.

Looking at it in this way, there should be no worries about the wind hero at all, but…

“…No, it might come…that person.” (Hyue)


Hyue seemed to be muttering something with a scary mood.

“In that case, it will be a fight to determine the superior huh. Just what I wanted.” (Hyue)

Hyue began to caress her wind gun as she laughed ‘kukukuku’.

What’s with that? It is scary.

“A-At any rate, it might be a stupid fight, but that’s exactly why we can’t lose. Using this as a chance, we will wipe out the unrestful elements in the human side, and next, it will connect to the fight with the Mother Monsters!” (Yorishiro)


Everyone raised their fists at the speech of Yorishiro.


After half a month, the details of the match between the new and old heroes, that has been approved by all the five Churches, had been announced.

The participants in the previous hero team are: the previous light hero, Sunnysol Ates; the previous fire hero, Abi Kyouka; previous water hero, Ra Sarasa; the previous earth hero ‘leg hunter’ Iemon Yoneko; and the wind hero that was discharged while still active, Brastor Juo.

And so, in the case that the previous heroes win, what they want to achieve is…the dissolution of the Hero Alliance and to retract the reconciliation of the five Churches. Moreover, the resignation of all the current heroes and Founders.

  1. Thanks for the chapter~

    Hmm. I wonder if we can do some kind of “Thanks Song” with a Christmas tune or something. Technically, Thanksgiving would be the holiday to do it, but that one doesn’t have many songs for some reason.

      1. Ooo. That’s a good one. I don’t know if I can make on on the fly, and we’re technically 5 days behind, but let’s give it a shot.

        On the first day of Christmas, Reigokai gave to me: “A chapter with a Tsukkomi♪”
        On the second day of Christmas, Reigokai gave to me: “Two bonus posts, and a chapter with a Tsukkomi♪”
        On the third day of Christmas, Reigokai gave to me: “Three First! bids, two bonus posts, and a chapter with a Tsukkomi♪”

        …Hmm…I can’t think of anything else off the top of my head. I know I want to work the comments section in there too, but I’m not sure where would be best. “Five screens of chats”, maybe?
        “Five pages of talk”…doesn’t have the right rhythm.

        1. It rhymes ! Lovely ~ I’d like to continue
          I think it sounds better like this:

          On the first day of Christmas Rei-senpai gave to me: “One novel chapter with tsukkomi”

          On the second day of Christmas Rei-senpai gave to me: “Two Bonus posts, and a Novel chapter with tsukkomi”

          On the Third day of Christmas Rei-senpai gave to me: “Three Seinvolf-bots, Two Bonus posts, and a Novel chapter with tsukkomi”

          On the fourth day of Christmas Rei-senpai gave to me: “Four Flying trucks, Three Seinvolf-bots, Two Bonus posts, and a Novel chapter with tsukkomi”

          On the fifth day of Christmas Rei-senpai gave to me: “FI~VE COMMENT PAGES, Four Flying trucks, Three Seinvolf-bots, Two Bonus posts, a Novel chapter with tsukkomi”

          *please continue*

          1. On the sixth day of Christmas Reigokai gave to me: “Six Gods a-fighting. Five Comment Pages~! Four Best Girls, three First! bids, two~ bonus posts, and a chapter filled with Tsukkomi♪”

            …Shoot, what do we have that involves 7? I’m sure we could slip that many Best Girls in there because Reigokai has excellent taste, but they deserve a place below 5, so that’s no good.

  2. In my opinion: the easiest way to deal with this situation is to let the previous heroes take over…

    I mean, they had encountered the wind demon lord (who is not dead) . Sooner or later, these previous heroes will have to deal with the 4 demon lords individually.

    So, why not let the demon lords deal with the previous heroes while they spend more time training together…

    1. that’s if you dont have an idealist like karen, the previous heroes wouldn’t fall alone against the demon lords, before their fall some towns and eachs church’s army will be wiped, those are a lot of people, and someone like karen(and at some point haine) wouln’t let it happen.

    2. “Damage already done” aside, the problem is that the Hero Alliance will lack the authority to do as much in this case.

      They’ll constantly be stonewalled by their respective churches and won’t even have the authority of official Heroes anymore, after all.

    3. At this point, no one knows about the existence of multiple Demon Lords. I’m sure Yorishiro would have followed that plan if she realized it.

    4. Many casualties would appear and they don’t want that. That’s why.

      The best way would be to simply ignore them. They are retired trash, they have no place in all this.

    1. I say bring it on. We have 4 demon lords (and one great demon lord) coming for us.

      How funny would it be if Sasae becomes such a monster that she can hold off/slay one of them all by herself while the Alliance is rushing to aid her?

  3. So, there is a previous wind hero before Shiva himself, or someone who is not recognised by Shiva as a wind hero, when he appointed Hyue as wind hero.

    1. It only makes sense, if you think about it.

      Quasar was on a reincarnation cycle, so there was bound to be normal humans who filled the gaps between his retirements, rebirths, and physical maturities.

    2. I’d wager that Shiva first had to take the founder title, then afterwards kicked out the wind hero of the previous founder to take all the power for himself.

        1. Yeah… something is weird when all the previous heroes suddenly came out, only to be against the hero alliance plan.
          I can smell a plot created by the demon lords. It might be them trying to destroy humans from within the society.

          I’m an orca. I can smell fish. 🙂

          1. It kind of sounds like of the Heroines win that the Demon Lords will make there appearance after the fight announcing the war that is to come. I would not be surprise if the Water God joins forces with them.

  4. Thanks for the chapters, Reigo-senpai.

    “You are saying that he can’t do anything against her cute disciple?” (Haine)

    Shouldn’t that “her” be changed to “his”?

  5. Thanks for the chapter.

    And what’s with the earth hero? 3 childs in a year? I really hope that it’s because she got twins at first. If not then the husband didn’t even wait for the umbilical cord to be cut.

    1. One thing is for sure. They should watch out for a woman who’s both powered by maternal instinct and has the pain tolerance to pop out three children in such quick succession.

      1. Yep. The math checks out. What a loving marriage.

        Oh. Actually, if she retired after getting married, I guess that means she was still a Hero when she got pregnant and had her first child? That seems like a fun backstory for this upcoming character…

    1. If Sun Sun-chan is strong enough to wipe out hundreds of monsters alone, then the old Heroes are certainly screwed by virtue of how much her shadows will be fed alone.

  6. W-wait…Sasae-chan is being trained physically by her granny and intellectually by Yorishiro? That loli with a hidden darkness? Oh dear god!

    …And yet, I’m morbidly curious about what kind of person this brutal and demonic superhuman Future Sasae will be… Surely, she’d become a feared legend that possibly even surpasses her seniors.
    Well, Haine is just going to splendidly leave that problem for later. “Forget about the inconvenient things” indeed.

    Hmm. The reveal about the other previous heroes aside, Badass Granny-san is the Strongest Earth Hero from seven generations back, huh? Let’s see…If Heroes generally retire at the age of 20-22, and can be appointed heroes at as young a age as 12-13, then each Hero generation lasts about a decade. That would make Badass Granny-san the 2nd or 3rd Earth Hero in this century of monsters, depending on how soon the churches appointed Heroes.

    Okay. That’s some interesting stuff. I kinda wanna argue that it seems stupid to retire a Hero so early for no apparent reason, but we can just chalk it up to stupid organizational bureaucracy. The important thing is that we know more about Sasae’s granny.

    1. Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t Japanese idols “graduate” around the same age the heroes retire? Maybe that’s the basis of the retirement age.

      1. If that’s true, then that’s probably it.

        It doesn’t make the decision any dumber though. The value of Heroes should be as “well-known super soldiers”, rather than just “pretty faces meant for publicity who are also officially considered strongest”.

  7. Thanks for the chapter and new attacks coming up. I think the mastermind of this is the former light leader which he got the idea from the Water God. I was wondering in the last chapter when was Sasae there? But it was covered. I almost thought Doraha was going to get involve sort like to see how her child has grown or surpass me if you can sort situation. Hyue defiently wants to overcome Brastor Juo.

    1. I’m hoping their interaction will be a funny one. Hyue’s still kind of a blank slate so far.

      Funnily enough, she’s fit every single one of our predictions for Wind Hero with her thin presence and comedically serious personality.

  8. Thanks for the chapter!

    “Looking at it in this way, there should be no worries about the wind hero at all, but…
    “…No, it might come…that person.” (Hyue) “Eh?”
    Hyue seemed to be muttering something with a scary mood.
    “In that case, it will be a fight to determine the superior huh. Just what I wanted.” (Hyue)
    Hyue began to caress her wind gun as she laughed ‘kukukuku’.
    What’s with that? It is scary.”
    – Oh great, even the Wind Hero has a twisted personality. And here I was thinking she would be the normal one.

        1. That logic was always suspect to me in a number of ways. Before anything else, it’s just plain logically inconsistent.

          But to go into more detail, just because you don’t stand out from the crowd doesn’t mean you’re not unique, and it’s not like everyone is special in the same way-which is why they’re called special. It’s extremely difficult if not impossible to find two identical grains of sand.

          And even if that is the case, there’s still people who will stand out in one way or another, even if a baseline is made to bring everyone to the same level.

          1. it mean if everybody is special because they all have a unique quirk, that make ‘having a quirk’ a standard, a normality
            if everybody is expected to be unique, it’s normal to be unique.

            but that’s a bit twisted

          2. That makes the idea lot less threatening because nothing is really being threatened.

            Actually, that description makes me think of Boku no Hero Academia, which still has people who are more “special” than others.

      1. I’m sure there’s a normal person somewhere, in the sense that they sit at the dead center of every normal curve for every metric of humanity, but every second a kid is born or someone dies or someone learns something new they’ll slip off the crest of normalcy and be replaced by another normal. Of course things get strange when you forget to apply significant digits to things like 1.23 kids or 1.973 eyes.

        @ Redcolonel –
        ” Just because you are special does not mean you are useful ”
        I don’t give a flip if everyone gets magic flight and the sky fills with flying fools because flying! WHEEE! Caring about being special is dumb elitist garbage thinking and I want a jet-pack.

        1. but if it’s so unusual to be what you call normal, doesn’t that mean he is abnormally normal, and “being normal” is a special character in itself, making him especially normal?

          1. I recall that there’s a Fire Emblem character who’s unique quirk is that he’s always smack in the middle of the army’s average.

            While this seems mundane, this basically means that if he improves, literally the whole army is going to improve as well just to keep him at the very center of that bell curve.

            The power to be “Average”. That’s has some fun potential…

  9. Thanks for the chapter.

    I don’t ever want to imagine a grown up Sasae that’s been fully indoctrinated by that Earth Hero/Founder Grandma and Yorishiro. The end result would be disastrous.😨

  10. They can overpower the previous generation using the element combine skill. The older will not cooperate with each other.

    1. That’ll definitely give them a big advantage.

      Although, I still feel like Karen should learn how to create Shadow from Doraha or Yorishiro, just in case. The ability to “eat” Light Divine power and make it your own will be invaluable against a Hero specialized in using it.

      1. The problem is I don’t think the shadow power is reversible. It’s probably a trade off, give up the power to control light in order to control its shadow.

        1. It would be a problem if Shadow isn’t reversible, but I assumed that it was more of a “technique that twists the element” than an “artifical element”.

          Do we have confirmation of which it is, one way or another?

  11. Thanks 4 the translation!

    Does Doraha still count as an active hero? If Sasae brings the average age of the current heroes to 14 by herself, what would the average age be if we include Doraha?

          1. The nature of this and that are different.

            Someone may call a lady baby/babe just to show a sign of affection towards that lady, or the guy is just a flirt loving bastard.

            Although a lady could certainly cease to be a lady if the lady do something that is frowned upon by the people who uphold the belief of ladyness, and on that case the lady will change position to “woman” or “girl”.

    1. It depends if you’re counting mental(biological?) age or chronological age.

      Biologically, she’s probably not much older than Sasae, so she’ kinda still brings the average down. Chronologically, it averages out at over 200 years per Hero…

        1. Was it though? If her body was still aging, then she should be old. Because her body was no longer aging from Shadow’s effects, she managed to survive until now.

          Like, would someone in stasis technically be age biologically?

  13. One question, why did yorishiro say in chapter 179 ” It is also due to the fact that we have mutual enemies that are the Mother Monsters and the Demon Lords” she should only know about one demon lord, so maybe that demon lord that wasn’t one of the four base elements( the Great Demon Lord, Lucifer) was the light demon lord that Yorishiro created? Or am I being too picky?

  14. Well, what do the heroes get if they win? If they lose, all heroes and founders have to retire, so what boons do they get if they win? Its got to be of equivilent value, which would be hard to manage. Who would replace the heroes and founders? I hope the author clarifies this, or even thought of it.

    1. Haine already mentioned it. He said it’s high risk low reward. I guess the reward is the silencing of the old guard within the churches and the strengthening of the hero alliance.

    2. Yeah, this is totally in the old Heroes’ favor in terms of risk.

      That said, it’s the Hero Alliance that’s trying to change the status quo, so you could say that it’s only natural they run into some resistance along the way.

      Put another way, if the Heroes win, they get to continue as planned. If they lose, they’ll be stopped then and there.

      1. Yeah. VERY supportive.

        Look, man. If you like that thing, it’s okay with us. Heck, we’ll even help you. I also think that Mio and Sasae would support this it they know.

        *takes out ‘tools’*

        I’ll personally support you (from behind).

        1. You are not welcome to do anything to me from behind.

          Besides, I’m pretty sure I’ve already mentioned it, but I’m definitely more of an S. Hence, my adoration of Mantle even while she was going crazy.

          My fascination with sadistic grown-up Sasae is purely for entertainment from her side of things, I promise.

          1. Don’t worry. I won’t do anything.
            I’ll just stand behind you with my tools (camera) and support you and watch as your panicky denials fails to hide your real self.

            Your fear and hate sustains me. 🙂

    1. I would say the older heroes have the advantage because they have the pressure of “Seniors” along with much more experience and raw power.

      Merged elements are the one thing that might be able to tip the scales, but I predict it’s only barely.

  15. Thanks for the chapter!!!

    Since this is a conspiracy, could they know about the elemental merge? That would take away the trump card of the current heroes!

  16. I think…. this is the moment where the dark church is going to be founded… our current heroes will lose, the founder will get retired… and then they will create the dark church! And they will prepare to fight the mighty demon lords!!! The power of friendships!!!

    In any case thank you for the chapter~ and I can’t wait for the result~!

      1. Dark Justice is the group name of the guys who… catches pedo. Right?

        Like, they lurk in the internet pretending to be 13 years old and use it to bait out pedos.
        It’s either them or the FBI in the internet that’s pretending to be underage teens.

        So, the Halls of Dark Justice is the list of captured pedos.
        Why are you mentioning this so suddenly Mack?

        Also, Pikli my friend. You may like the name Halls of Dark Justice, but I don’t wish to see your name in that hall.

        1. I did not know that was such a thing out. I was kind of mention sort of like the whole “Justice League Dark” movie or the Great Halls of Justice as their group base. And just looked it up on Google and it is called Dark Justice. Not the Hall of Dark Justice. Am sorry if I confuse you.

          1. On that topic, what are the most fantastic “water town” settings you’ve ever encountered?

            I feel like there should be a lot of potential for great stuff in fantasy, but I’m not really well-versed in the stuff.

          2. I watched Aria before and I think Neo-Venezia was a good setting.
            The BGM and Soundtracks was good too.
            ‘Undine’ and ‘Rainbow’ (acoustic) gave me the goosebumps when I listen to it years ago, man.

  17. thanks for the chapter

    I’m still wondering if haine will take a disciple once to teach him darkness divine power as the dark hero (a ‘hero of darkness’, I can already see what you think)

  18. In the wise words of Rick and Morty or close to that “Traditions are an idiot thing” so yes I hope the old hero’s get wrecked; thanks for the chapter

    1. Tradition is not an idiot thing. They sustain what was achieved. What is an idiot thing is choosing something outdated or disfunctioned new in regards to something that works – meaning be it traditional or new, if it is good or at least better considering all variables, should be no problem to consider it.

    2. In the equally wise words of Kazuya Souma: “Folklores are a people’s memory. If it is handed down then it must contain some [moral] or [life wisdom] in it.”

      The duty of the old generation is to pave the cleanest way forward it can find. The duty of the new generation is to find the flaws in the path the old generation left behind and refine it further so that those who follow them will be able to go beyond even what the new generation can expect.

      This chain of never-ending “new perspectives” is what captivated Entropy, so we shouldn’t ignore it. Whether it’s blindly following or blindly rejecting, both approaches are flawed.

  19. The wind demon lord is probably out there healing himself by turning villages into roiling heaps of maggot while these people dicker.

    2018 is coming. I can’t wait to watch the upcoming anime next year. The list of coming titles are promising !
    So many anime to watch. So much time and money to waste… not to mention the endless novel translations.
    (Otaku) life is getting good and I don’t want to leave the world yet. Have to catch the next episode next year, right? 🙂
