TLN: Hey guys, Reigokai here!
Some people may have noticed already that there are sponsored chapters in the queue (Thanks!) and that no sponsored chapters came out in Sunday.
It is actually because I had to celebrate Lunar Year with my family the whole past week. But fret not! I will be tackling those chapters this week!
Now then, from here on, I will take on the part of narrating —the fragment of the evil Light Goddess, Sunnysol Ates.
It has been several days since the battle in the Light Grand Church against my other half, Yorishiro, and the unexpectedly tough Kourin Karen-san.
Having escaped from Apollon City, I was hiding myself at a place far away from human civilization.
At a ‘certain place’ that is separate from the world of humans.
Now that I have revealed my identity to my other half, Yorishiro, I don’t plan on living my life with this human body anymore.
I will not be acting as Sunnysol Ates or the evil half of the Light Goddess Inflation, but on my duty as a God.
But in order to not make things complicated, let’s leave my name as being Ates for now.
About the ‘certain place’ that I am using as my home, it is at a place that is far away from the five nations and among the mountains, and it is impossible to approach by human means.
Among those mountains, I made a giant castle with my powers as a God and was making base there for the destruction of humanity…no, if I had to put it more accurately, it is not a castle but a cocoon. A cocoon that stores my precious Light Demon Lord, Lucifer.
This whole castle was made specially as an organic outer shell to form the Light Demon Lord.
“It still needs more time it seems.” (Ates)
I was checking the state of this cute child that was sleeping inside the castle.
Now that I have obtained the final piece that was the shadow spear Abel, my Lucifer is on its way to completion.
But there’s no need to hurry. All the pieces of the puzzle are within my hands after all.
“What’s left is to piece them together one by one.” (Ates)
I bid farewell to the sleeping child for now and go down the stairs -in order to tame the problematic wild dogs that are there.
When I arrive at the room, a problem soon happened.
The group that was supposed to be four only has three now.
“…Where is the Water Demon Lord Gabriel?” (Ates)
I look at the remaining three and point out the only missing one.
They are quite peculiar compared to humans, so there’s no way I would mistake their names and faces.
“Who knows. He said ‘I thought of something amusing’ and left. Don’t know where he went though.” (Uriel)
“He must have been thinking about a plan to destroy the humans. He is the scheming type after all. He probably has prepared a hell that will make us go ‘wow’.” (Raphael)
The Earth Demon Lord Uriel and the Wind Demon Lord Raphael speak casually.
These idiots! I couldn’t help but shout this inside my head.
In order to eradicate the humans that stole the eyes of my beloved Entropy, there’s necessary steps to take. They don’t understand this at all.
In the end, even if they have obtained intelligence, monsters are still monsters.
To make these wild beasts move along my scenario, I will need to do quite the work.
“You people, I will be saying this again but, I am the envoy of the Great Demon Lord Lucifer-sama.” (Ates)
That is the setting I made in order to call the Demon Lords to this castle.
Currently, this is the only way to have them obey me in this human body.
“I am the servant of Lucifer-sama who rules over light. He is still in his sleep towards perfection, and since Lucifer-sama can’t speak and act at his current state, I am serving as his messenger. I am the person that receives the will of Lucifer-sama. You can consider me the priestess of Lucifer-sama.” (Ates)
Of course, this is all made-up.
But if I don’t say all this, the Demon Lords wouldn’t even hear me out in my present outward appearance of a human.
“Please take my words as if they were from Lucifer-sama himself. If you go against my words, Lucifer-sama himself will be judging you when he awakens. Is that okay?” (Ates)
When I approach them with a slightly strong tone, the Demon Lords were unexpectedly obedient.
“Tch, I know. The words of Lucifer-sama are absolute.” (Uriel)
“This place that you guided us to is pretty comfortable after all. I don’t mind thinking of your words as Lucifer-sama’s for now.” (Raphael)
It was mixed with a click of the tongue, but fine. As long as they move obediently as my pawns, it is fine.
“Then, I will be telling you the order of Lucifer-sama. The time to fight has come.” (Ates)
The moment I said that, I certainly felt the exaltation that ran between the Demon Lords.
“The battle between the monsters and humans to decide the new rulers of the of the world is finally starting. The wish of Lucifer-sama is destruction and eradication. In order to make this surface world into a paradise for monsters, every single one of the lowly human race has to be removed —by your hands.” (Ates)
“This feast of death…is the wish of Lucifer-sama, right?”
“Interesting. It is finally time to slaughter those haughty humans huh.”
The Demon Lords were showing more naked will than I thought.
Even without ordering them to eradicate the humans, that is their desire. And their instinct as Demon Lords enhances this.
Looks like this will turn into a good flow.
I decided on telling them the plan immediately.
“I know plenty well the strength of you all. In order to eradicate the humans, a single one of you would be plenty enough, but there’s a single problem, and just that single thing is making it difficult.” (Ates)
“Kuromiya Haine.” (Raphael)
“The darkness user huh. It is true that he is not simply on the level of troublesome.” (Uriel)
Unexpectedly, the Demon Lords were composed and could analyze the strength of others.
I thought that with people like them who possess absolute power, they would have their own pride for that power and wouldn’t admit that there’s other people stronger than them, bringing them to their own demise, but…it looks like this makes them even more worth using.
“And so, Lucifer-sama has provided you with a plan.” (Ates)
“A plan, you say?”
“That’s right. An attack on all five nations by you four Demon Lords!!” (Ates)
Apollon City, Muspelheim, Hydra Ville, Ishtar Blaze, and Rudras Metropolis; these five nations are in separate locations, and it is impossible for Haine-san to protect them by himself.
In the end, if we exclude Haine-san, everyone is small fry.
If we think of Haine-san as being their only fighting force, it would be a 4:1 with the Demon Lords.
“Haine-san is using Apollon City as his base, so I will have you people attack the other four nations. Haine-san will hurriedly head to assist, but he will only be able to save one capital. The other three capitals will be disappearing from the map in the same day.” (Ates)
Along with the heroes that protect those nations.
“Putting it in another way, it would mean that one nation will receive the help of Kuromiya Haine, right?” (Raphael)
“What will the Demon Lord that gets faced with that do?” (Uriel)
Looks like this people ask proper questions. It makes them easy to deal with, but at the same time hard to deal with.
“I will leave that to the jurisdiction of the person in question. You can challenge the darkness with your pride as Demon Lord on the line, or you can also quickly retreat. The most important part of this plan is to disturb Haine-san after all.” (Ates)
No matter the case, the simultaneous attack of the Demon Lords will bring destruction and chaos to the world like never before.
Haine-san won’t be able to stop that.
In the end, he is only one person.
It is not like I am not bothered by a few things, but I can simply stop Yorishiro by moving myself, and the incarnation of Quasar that is the Wind Founder is in tatters and unable to fight.
They are all people that are not worth attention.
I repeat, Haine-san alone won’t be able to stop the Demon Lords!
“Now go, Demon Lords! Go to the nations that the humans have raised and make the humans shed blood! To the thousands or millions! In order to wet the throat of Lucifer-sama by the time he awakens!” (Ates)
And in concert, the Demon Lords raised their voice.
““Nah, not now.””
- 257: Demon Lord’s invitation to death
“W-What did you say?!” (Ates)
I -Sunnysol Ates- have provided you with such a perfect plan, and yet, you Demon Lords rejected it?
Uriel and Raphael; as if these guys had not been listening to me talk since the beginning, they resume their lazing about.
“Y-You people…are you going against Lucifer-sama?!” (Ates)
I bring out all the dignity I could as I said this, and the first one to answer was Raphael with an awkward expression.
“We didn’t say we were rejecting it. We are saying it is fine if it isn’t now.” (Raphael)
What’s with that way of speaking as if you were children leaving your homework for later?
“Within the Demon Lords, I was the one who encountered Kuromiya Haine immediately and fought a grand battle with him. Because of that, I ended up losing most of my body.” (Raphael)
Raphael was wearing an armor that covered his whole body and even within the Demon Lords he stood out with that appearance.
The role of that armor was to support the body inside that was regenerating, in other words, it was being used as a plaster.
“There’s the need for time to completely regenerate the many cells that I lost. If you wait for a bit more, I will show you that I can destroy all of the humans myself.” (Raphael)
“I also have a similar reason to that.” (Uriel)
Uriel is the next one to speak.
“I took an attack from Kuromiya Haine and ended up receiving a wound, though it is not on the same level as Raphael’s. My bark was peeled off cleanly. Walking outside like this is embarrassing.” (Uriel)
What is this guy saying.
Since Uriel is the Earth Demon Lord, his body has an appearance like that of a tree. The surface of it is tree itself, but because of the battle with Haine before, the bark part was peeled off and the white grains are visible.
If we had to put it in human terms, it would be as if he were naked, maybe?
“I want to avoid leaving until I am covered by a black-lustre bark. A grand slaughter requires a grand appearance. Don’t you think?” (Raphael)
These damn monsters!
As I thought, they are all idiots!
Now that my other half Yorishiro has a card called God Heroes, there’s nothing to lose in being quick, and yet…! The Wind and Earth Demon Lord are throwing a tantrum, and the Water Demon Lord is not even here.
At this rate, the simultaneous Demon Lord attack I made will end up collapsing!
“I will go.”
At that moment, an austere voice that made the earth tremble resounded in the place.
It was low and yet it travelled well.
The Fire Demon Lord that had been here all the time but maintained silent.
A giant muscular man with burning crimson wings.
Because of the dignified aura he lets out, the other two Demon Lords raise their voices.
“Uriel and Raphael should prioritize healing their wounds. Gabriel must have his own thoughts as well. But if we were to not make any achievements by the time Lucifer-sama awakens, we wouldn’t be able to welcome him as comrades of his.” (Michael)
The big frame of Michael made my body as Ates have no choice but to look up at him. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t even be able to see his face.
“I will go. I will destroy a single human settlement and make that the beacon of war.” (Michael)
“W-Wait there!!” (Ates)
I hurriedly chase after Michael who was about to leave the castle.
“Weren’t you listening to my plan either?! The attack to the nations has meaning when it is a simultaneous attack!” (Ates)
Four Demon Lords attack four nations; it is when that scenario takes place that we can make Haine-san fall into confusion.
“If you leave on your own, it is basically telling Haine-san to go there! Are you planning on making a foolish attack?!” (Ates)
“That person is not almighty. By the time he receives notice of the attack, he will take time to arrive.” (Michael)
The analysis of Michael was sound.
“I just have to finish my task by the time he arrives, and then leave. Kuromiya Haine is an opponent that we must defeat in time, but this will be a decent fire starter for the time when Lucifer-sama awakens.” (Michael)
“T-Then at the very least make your target Rudras Metropolis!” (Ates)
The blazing eyes of Michael look down at me.
“Don’t you know the elemental affinities? The four base elements have their respective weaknesses. The opponent you as the Fire Demon Lord are advantageous against is wind. If you attack Rudras Metropolis that has the most wind users, the easy wipe out will be even easier.” (Ates)
If you are going to act, taking the most efficient way is the most intelligent way.
I will teach that to you coarse monsters.
“…Those are not the words of Lucifer-sama.” (Michael)
“That’s a way of thinking similar to those lowly humans. Scheming is in the first place something that the weak utilize. A way for the weak to oppose the strong.” (Michael)
What is this giant man saying?
“That’s why, against that Kuromiya Haine, I won’t mind using scheming. I know that he is stronger than us. In order to obtain victory, for the sake of a future with us as the superior race, doing all that’s needed to be done will not hurt our pride.” (Michael) to
“That’s right! That’s why you should attack Rudras Metropolis!” (Ates)
I desperately tried to chase after Michael whose strides reach a lot further than mine.
“But what about the other humans aside from Kuromiya Haine?” (Michael)
“They are weak. On the level of worms. To use scheming against enemies like that, it would be like the strong fearing the weak. Do you think our pride will maintain if we were to do that? Is there any meaning in a victory you can’t take pride in?” (Michael)
What stupid things are you saying!
Monsters talking about pride? Are you a true idiot?!
“I won’t use schemes against anyone but Kuromiya Haine. I will destroy them straight on. That’s my pride, and it is also etiquette of the strong against the weak. The weak have their path and the strong have their path to follow.” (Michael)
“Then you…” (Ates)
I can’t keep this up anymore.
Just let these idiots do as they wish.
“Where are you planning on attacking?” (Ates)
“The nation that is related to fire just as me —the Fire capital, Muspelheim.” (Michael)
So tragedy will befall them huh.
Oh well, whatever. Just go around slaughtering as you wish and get killed for all I care.
Now then, from here on, someone else will take the role of narrating.
There’s a more fitting person to talk about the blood feast that will be beginning from now on, after all.

Thank u always for ur great work…

Gotta read it fast!

Hey, that’s fine by me. Happy Chinese New Year to your family as well. 😀
My family tried out some kind of customary cake. It tasted like honey and was pretty good.
Anyways, we’re going to see things from Ates’s perspective now? I am…intrigued. Thanks for the chapter!
Thanks for the chapter :v
Wait, Ates took over “narrating”? I mean, that’s literally true, but is that supposed to be some kind of actual duty being passed around? What? She even explained to us to call her Ates for now.
How do I put this…this chapter was just thoroughly cute. It felt like a bunch of children were talking between the demon lords asserting their own sense of modesty or pride and Ates playing the hard tsukkomi, the frustrated manager, and, for some reason, a mother.
I have to admit, I’m impressed. Villains are usually either monstrously threatening, annoying, or a complete joke, but the author managed to give these demon lords tangible personalities. Even more impressively, Ates manages to get a few cute scenes despite us knowing just how despicable she is.
I’m reminded of Iris and Dahlia Hawthorne in that way.
Remember she’s not actually evil. She’s the jealous part of the light goddess, that’s not evil, it’s evil for the humans but they are just insignificant to her. Her sole purpose of living is to make entropy not Haine love her and only be with her
She declared Inflation an evil goddess herself though.
I dunno…Ates is…weird. I can’t figure out what I want to happen to her, nor can I tell what is actually going to happen with her.
she said she is ‘the evil part of inflation’ not that Inflation is evil
Saying “the fragment of the evil Light Goddess” sounds like she’s calling Inflation an evil goddess to me.
Well, I mean… What was Ates expecting? They’re basically all just children mentally, physically and chronologically.
Or they could just be teenagers, the rebellious period.
And the question of whether or not Ates is Lucifer is back(?) Or did she just confirm herself to be Lucifer?
Bruuuh I can see it already. Lucifer is gonna stab her in the back and either A absorb her power (unlikely) or B not know that she’s a god thus she will destroy him later with pleasure once he destroys the humans. Tho they won’t succeed with the destruction
Oooh. That’d be fun.
What if Lucifer “eats” her like all the other Demon Lords did with their own mothers? Then we would get real power-up to the final boss and Haine might be able to pull off some kind of thing where Entropy rescues his wife(‘s fragment).
Seriously, that depends on whether or not this “Lucifer” exists.
In the end, Ates never confirmed the existence of “Lucifer,” for all we know, Ates could actually be “Lucifer”
She talks about “Lucifer” to the other Demon Lords as if he’s an independent entity, but in her mental narrative, there is no actual distinction of “Lucifer” as one.
What do you mean? Ates is clearly referring to Lucifer as a separate being early this post, isn’t she? Stuff like “this child” is definitely not herself, right?
And the fact that she talks about the cocoon thing as its nurturing outer shell means she isn’t incubating it or anything either.
Thanks for the chapter. Michael is a pretty cool character, I hate to see him go but with the Demon Lords attitude they will fight to the end. Looking forward to the fight.
Thanks for the chapters, Reigo-senpai.
*starts singing “Ring of Fire”*
Thanks for the chapter.
I’m beginning to wonder if Ates is really so clever given this situation. Michael’s line about how her orders weren’t Lucifer’s, and her own perception of the Demon Lords, somewhat shows that there’s apart of all this she’s missing. I think there’s more meaning to that line in foreshadowing Lucifer’s potential.
I’m putting the theory out there that Ates screwed up and the Demon Lords hold more sentience than she thought, especially Lucifer. I bet when Lucifer wakes up he’ll back-stab Ates and try to devour her along with the rest of the world. (Well if I’m wrong then that means I just read too much into it).
…. as expected from Fire Elemental….
all of them is Muscle Brain!!!
LET THERE BE HOTBLOODEDNESS !!
She still believed that Lucifer will follow her orders when he is completed.
All I can see is that
1. Lucifer will not follow her.
2. Lucifer will try to destroy even the gods, since he will have a shadow and light, which is Haine’s weakness.
3. Either that, or Lucifer will have a child personality, which he thinks that Haine is his father.
for number 2 is slightly wrong…
since Shadow is weak against Darkness…
it already show on previous chapters how Haine Handle Doroha when she in Berserk-state in the Dark Country’s Ruins…
Shadow cannot overcome the true Darkness….
Inflation create her own weakness…. unconsciously or not.
Lucifer wouldn’t need to use Shadow as Haine’s weakness when it’s naturally Light though.
A combination of Light and Shadow is pretty strong, to be honest. Light has a slight advantage over all the other elements while covering Shadow’s only weakness, and Shadow seems to be fairly resilient as well, considering none of the Gods could stop Doraha’s rampage before Darkness showed up.
yes ~ but this is the battle they gonna fought together as a team…
so if Lucifer just using light to fight against Haine alone… the other will also attack with their own elements… and Lucifer gonna use Shadow to block them… (light didn’t have “slight” advantage against 4 elements, Inflation herself said this that Light didn’t have any advantage against 4 element even slighty lower damage output than 4 elements)
and Haine can erase Shadow with his Darkness.
yeah ~ and if Haine using Black Hole… even Light cannot win against that… but if only Haine find a way to control it without devouring anything.
What? I’m pretty sure it’s been repeated several times that Light is slightly superior to all the other Base Elements as one of the Poles.
What Inflation has said was that her advantage isn’t good enough for her to beat all four of the base gods if they ganged up on her.
As far as I’ve been able to observe, elemental “advantage” seems to be referring the efficiency with which elements clash with each other. In this chapter, Mirack mentions that when it’s Fire vs Fire, the stronger power wins.
When Wind Divine Power was shot at Mirack and Enou, the natural Fire Divine Power they exuded easily resisted the attacks, but when it was used on Sasae, her resilient-by-nature Earth Divine Power was canceled out and punched through like paper.
Similarly, when Haine uses Darkness on one of the base elements, it breaks them down into nothing as if it were “erasing” them while it spread. When it meets with Light, however, not only does it erase nothing, but the Light overwhelms and cuts through Darkness instead.
Considering all these interactions, I think “advantage” refers to how much one type of divine energy is needed to match the other.
15 points of Fire can overcome 10 points of Fire. 10 points of Fire can overcome 30 points of Wind. 1 Point of Darkness can overcome 100 points of Fire, Water, Wind, and Earth combined, but the reverse is also true for Light to Darkness. And so an elemental advantage means the side with the upper hand both has a strong defense and piercing attack against its quarry.
So taking all of these assumptions, I’m assuming that Light being described as having a “slight advantage” means that it takes less than equal Light Divine Power to match any of the other elements’s power output, but not as much efficiency as there would have been if it was an element with “normal” advantages.
Light as a Pole doesn’t mean that has slight advantage against other 4 element…
but compatible with 4 elements….
Light is a “Base”… a blank white, can be coloured with 4 elements.
if about much divine energy to match with elements weakness or same elements… its basic rule… like Fire can overcome Water if Fire is Hot enough. but not about advantage that element has.
Wind>Fire>water>earth… this is an advantage i am talking about but light is not in that.. since Light is Pole.. a base, don’t hold advantage against 4 elements but has compability with all other element…
from this nature that all current heroes who think its impossible for 4 elements to do join attacks, thanks to light they break that mindset. (light shoe dem de wei)
but Shadow is take all of that advantage… from Compatible to absorb it and make the shadow become more stronger… Pseudo Darkness.. unlike Darkness that erase the 4 elements… but shadow lost one of the most important of Light’s advantage has… nullify the darkness.
I barely understand anything you just said.
Light has never been characterized as a “blank” of any kind. Every single element is something of substance. If you’re talking about a type of energy that can be colored with other elements, Ethereal has a better chance of that-which is totally our speculation with no in-story proof mind you.
Light is a Pole, and the two Poles stand above the Bases in terms of hierarchy. Darkness happens to erase the Bases on top of that, while Light has a natural advantage. This is all mentioned in the story itself.
then you don’t read the full story… Inflation herself never say that…. she say Light didn’t have disadvantage or advantage…
since when if something is a Pole… then must have been the top?
Darkness didn’t on the top because lose against Light… so Light is stronger?
then its not two poles, but one pole since Darkness lose against light :p
Pole is because Dark and Light is the beginning… they are like a parents of 4 elements, rather than ruler of 4 elements.
there’s no light if there’s no darkness, and there’s no Darkness if there’s no Light.
and there’s no “World” if 4 elements didn’t exist. they all equal in terms of “Hierarchy” they govern their representative element.
Ethereal is a Battery… not an element….. i talking about element.
no in-story proof then you too non in-story proof too ~ LMAO
Oh man. That last scenario would be hilarious for a number of reasons.
Firstly is the Demon Lords’ reactions. Second is the Inflations’ reactions. Lastly is if Haine actually plays along and treats it like his child.
It might come a but weird, but I’m a bit intrigued. Various translators take a break during lunar new year to be with their family, are you guys all family and reunite during this time to plan the translations for the year?
So tbere is a possibility for Fire God Hero
Thank you for the chapter..
Thanks for chapter
Thanks 4 the translation!
A certain cow won’t like it if the people that pet him and feed him are wiped out.
don’t tell me the cow will narrate things..
When is the story gonna have a dark hero though?
Other than Haine, wonder if he’s gonna have to pick he’s own hero or somethin…
