Tsuki – Chapter 297: Puppet revolt, end

TLN: Hey guys, Reigokai here!

I know I promised a two chapter release of extras, but guess what! Yes! New chapter of Tsuki main blew away all priorities!

So remember, whenever that happens, I will change schedule to main instead of extra (if time allows it).

Also heads up, this is a pretty decently lengthed chapter.

Now then, enjoy the chapter! :DD

There’s an innumerable amount of Spirits in this world.

Most of them are harmless existences that don’t have a will and don’t act on their own. They are not even noticed by most of the hyumans. They may not have a clear will, but there are a good amount of them that can act instinctively. They are called Low Spirits.

There do exist some that can communicate, but they are few in number, and they are called Mid Spirits.

For the many mages that utilize Spirit magic, being able to communicate with a Mid Spirit and have a contract with them is a life goal.

And from within that category, there’s an even higher grade than the Mid Spirits. The High Spirits that rule over a respective element.

There’s only six High Spirits in the world. Fire, Water, Wind, Earth, Light, Darkness; there’s only one of each respectively. They serve the Goddess, and they are also a target of worship as existences affiliated to her.

It is impossible to make a contract with High Spirits using Spirit magic.

Being able to make contact with them and obtaining their cooperation would already be a great enterprise for a hyuman.

That’s why the Lorel Union’s Priestess of each generation is respected as an existence capable of communicating with the Water Spirit.

For Lorel who has many rivers with swift streams, the ability of communicating with the Water Spirit to obtain a big blessing in the flood control is something that can’t be lacking in the country’s maintenance and development.

There has been no mention of the Fire, Wind, or Earth raising a country and being worshipped, and the most mention they have gotten is when a brave that appears every now and then gets involved with them. Thus, the relationship that Lorel Union has with the Water Spirit is an incredibly special case.

And this came about from the first generation Priestess who was the progenitor of talisman magic and a Spirit user that held high expectations. It was heavily related with it being Hitsuna though…but at any rate, the current Lorel’s worship towards the Water Spirit is tremendous.

Putting it bluntly, they worship the Water Spirit more fervently than the Goddess.

The Goddess is simply being prayed at on the side because she is the master of the Water Spirit.

Aside from the fact that they themselves have taken it to accept all Wise, they are a single nation.

Not only that, they have raised their name to one of the major powers and stay loyal to being unchanging.

The flood control and many other miracles.

The benefits that the Water Spirit brings about to Lorel go from small things to big things.

But…how strong is a High Spirit?

A Water High Spirit that receives the fervent worship of a whole nation that is considered a major power of the world. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say it is an existence close to that of the Goddess.

“I thought for a moment that it was the Goddess that was interfering, but…it was a Spirit-jatta ka.” (Tomoe)

Tomoe mutters slightly unamused.

While looking at the battle high in the sky, she was showing an expression as if she had met an unsavory person.

It was quite the change from her excited state when she saw the big youkai war and had her eyes sparkling to the point of skipping.

“It was an opponent that Tomoe-san and Shiki had to give up on even when going against it two against one, right?” (Mio)

“Don’t put it in a way that can be misunderstood. I can understand you not liking that that woman has absorbed the magic power of Waka though.” (Tomoe)

“…Hmph.” (Mio)

“I simply pulled back temporarily because I had judged that, no matter how we dealt with it, it would affect this country and would be impossible to keep it undercover. That’s how deep and old the relationship Lorel Union and the Water High Spirit is.” (Tomoe)

“Those Spirits are servants of the Goddess after all. They are different from Superior Dragons in that they increase their strength with worship.” (Mio)

“Seriously. From the perspective of a Superior Dragon, they are basically problematic parasitic existences that do whatever they want with a proud face. Well, that’s solely how a Superior Dragon would think of it-ja ga.” (Tomoe)

“……From the perspective of a Superior Dragon huh. Yeah yeah.” (Mio)

Haruka clad with a golden and soft clear blue light is fighting with Makoto.

This was occurring in the sky, and at times, lights of destruction would rain in the city as it continued even now.

Makoto had an indigo blue aura around his body and clashed with Haruka while leaving trails of light behind, and sometimes, they would exchange blows at close range.

The high ranked magic shot with crazy amounts of magic power and the rampaging skills were akin to a natural disaster.

But Tomoe and Mio, who were watching this extraordinary fight, didn’t show much change in their looks.

The most they did was chat with the students that were in the same place as them and were tasked to protect.

“Spirit-sama is helping out mother?” (Iroha)

“Even if the Priestess-sama is absent, that’s just…”

Iroha says with a cracked and trembling voice.

It is unknown if it is because of exhaustion or a mental matter, but she is unable to stand up even now and was being held up by Izumo who had a pale face as well.

It couldn’t be helped.

For them, the Water High Spirit is a target of worship.

An existence close to that of a God.

And that existence close to being a God, who would only communicate with the Priestess, was currently lending part of its power to Haruka. Just thinking that made their body tremble.

“And so, how is it, Tomoe-san? The level of its power.” (Mio)

“Same as mine, or maybe higher than mine.” (Tomoe)

“Meaning that it would be a bad idea to clash with it without any plans. I don’t like it, but I think the same.” (Mio)

“But well, we are not Waka after all. Picking a fight with a High Spirit without any plans would be impossible. However, if we were to properly have a plan…it would be impossible for us to lose.” (Tomoe)

“Right-desu wa ne.” (Mio)


Mio narrowed her eyes slightly at the words of Tomoe that were said without any special meaning, and Jin and the others who heard this had their eyes wide open.

It was a surprise that Mio might be on the same level as Haruka and Tomoe who are on the level of superhyumans and braves.

Surprised by the fact that Haruka was such a dangerous existence, and that Tomoe and Mio are combatants on that level of power; those two facts brought about this reaction from them.

(In that case, Sensei who these two serve under…just who in the world…) (Jin)

There was only one. Only Jin was carving in his heart the awe he felt towards the person that precedes them, Raidou.

He already didn’t care about the pain in his neck as he burned everything that was happening before him in his eyes.

They may have been healed and their injuries treated, but it is not as if they are brimming with energy. But even with that, rather than the desire of lying down to rest, their desire to witness everything was winning inside the hearts of everyone there.

“Tomoe-dono.” (Kougetsu)

“Hm? …Oh, Kougetsu-dono huh. You being here must mean that you have finished collecting the maddened guys already?” (Tomoe)

A weak and low but clear voice calls out Tomoe by name, and she turns to receive it.

In that place, there’s the man that dispatched and commanded the troops of Kannaoi to deal with the surprise attack of Haruka, Kougetsu.

“Yeah. Excluding that though. That blue and golden…is Haruka, right?” (Kougetsu)

“Umu.” (Tomoe)

“And the one confronting her is your master, Raidou-dono then?” (Kougetsu)

“As you guessed.” (Tomoe)

“That damn Sairitz. Just how in the world would I… No, I would be crying over spilt milk. At any rate, Tomoe-dono, I once again give my thanks for saving this short life of mine and the young lives that will be supporting the future.” (Kougetsu)

“I don’t mind.” (Tomoe)

“You say it as if it is nothing. A miracle like that—” (Kougetsu)

“I had to get used to my own power, and I also had the order of Waka. That’s why, just think of yourself and your subordinates as lucky. And since you have died once, you must have learned a lot from it, right? Just use what you have learned plenty well in the future.” (Tomoe)

Tomoe pushes aside the thanks for the resurrection she performed as if it was nothing.

She only told him to put that important experience to good use.

A lesson.

How this lesson will turn out to be in the future depends on Kougetsu and the others, but this is also an ingenious salesmanship of Tomoe to push a high-pressure debt on them.

It could also be considered an induction of fear.

They were massacred by Haruka, so some of them might retire from being soldiers due to the trauma though.

“Is Tomoe-dono saying that even that was of no difficulty?” (Kougetsu)

“By no means. It was quite the troublesome and problematic job, you know. If it weren’t under the order of Waka, I wouldn’t want to do that a second time-ja na.” (Tomoe)


A feat of such degree.

What Kougetsu referred to was not simply the resurrection of the dead.

Of course, resurrection itself is an incredibly high-ranked magic, so it isn’t something that can be readily used.

But what Tomoe did was resurrecting everyone, even the ones who were minced by Haruka and were literally just red splatters, and the ones that were burned and only left a burned mark on the ground; all of them were resurrected with their whole body intact.

Resuscitation out of scraps. It was a feat that wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call a miracle.

Kougetsu, who was the first one to be resurrected from a state where only one of his legs were left, had witnessed all of it.

‘Aah, I went too far-ja~!’ and ‘That’s not it!’ and ‘Why did it suddenly connect there~?!’, she spouted those kind of words that lacked tension as she performed what should be miracles, and Kougetsu, who saw and heard all of this, already had no ill feelings towards the Kuzunoha Company.

Hyuman bodies were gradually taking form from the earth, and from that meat, life took dwelling and they opened their eyes, and then, he as the commanding officer looked at his own body and said: ‘It is like something out of legends’.

Kougetsu wished for this situation to be resolved more than fulfilling his own ambition.

He wished from the bottom of his heart to save this city from the tragedy that he himself created because of his own impatience.

That’s why, when Tomoe had asked him for his cooperation after she finished her miracles, he immediately accepted, even if the request of her was to shelter the attackers.

That resolve of his didn’t change even when he saw the spectacle in the sky.

He cannot be considered a pious one, but he does have faith towards Spirits on the level of an average person.

A Spirit may have lend Haruka its strength, but he who has already experienced death once was able to accept that truth with somewhat cold eyes.

In the first place, there’s someone who seems to be, at the very least, fighting on the same level as Haruka.

That’s why he placed those two realities on a scale, and had headed towards where Tomoe, Mio, and Iroha are while minding the transitions of the battle.

—For the sake of thanking his benefactor, to see the conclusion of the battle, and to decide how he will be acting from now on.

“That woman…she is gradually getting stronger. If I were to get hit by her attacks as she is now, I feel like even the special gear would be smashed to pieces.” (Yuno)

“Correct. As expected of Waka-sama’s student. You have quite the good eyes. Work even harder. If you are able to handle it well, I will upgrade it to mark 2.” (Mio)

“Eh?!” (Yuno)

Mio gave out unexpected words towards the evaluation of Yuno that had surpassed mortification and entered the area of resignation.

“Also, Misura, was it? You are also pretty decent yourself. You are already stepping into the realm of a brave. Single-mindedly specializing in defense. Complete party doctrine. You have piqued my interest.” (Mio)

“E-Eeeeeh?!” (Misura)

“I kind of understand why Tomoe-san was interested in you. You managed to coordinate with Yuno within real combat, took leadership, and are a defense oni. Fufu, being pulled in by single specializations might be the influence of Waka-sama.” (Mio)

Mio pats Yuno and Misura in a joyful mood.

Even though Tomoe alone was already plenty hellish enough, if he were to get another one…the body of Misura was trembling in fear at the prospects of not being able to endure it.

On the other hand, Yuno had her eyes sparkle at the sound of ‘mark 2’ and then, reminisced the fight she had together with Misura and nodded several times.

(Right. Since the moment Misura-senpai took command and coordinated, moving around got incredibly easier. Now that I think about it, I don’t know how to act as the shield of the party after all. Today’s Misura-senpai was truly incredible…) (Yuno)

Moreover, at the times when she would use offensive skills, he would properly send Yuno to the frontlines.

He was truly an artisan of defense. Yuno had felt directly the degree of his ability.

With the words of praise from Mio, Yuno send a slightly passionate look towards Misura who was looking at what was directly above them.

“It is true that it is impressive. It is impressive, but…it is somewhat different. This is the first time I have seen a Spirit power this thick, but…there’s something…” (Sif)

Sif was looking up as she muttered.

It seemed as if, after being told about the existence of the Spirit from Tomoe, she had agreed but at the same time couldn’t.

As a mage that borrows the power of Spirits, the current state of Haruka is something that she can’t understand well.

It is as if the Spirit itself had descended, and at the same time, it hasn’t.

In the first place, if a High Spirit were to dwell inside the body of a hyuman, in most cases, that vessel would explode.

It has been said that a number of Lorel Priestesses have done the descent ceremony in the past and have done incredible miracles, but they all -without exception- died a few minutes later.

A death by burning through their lifeforce and mental strength. The Priestesses are incredible in itself for managing to have their whole body intact after that.

But Haruka is still alive, even though several minutes have long passed already.

Then, is the High Spirit lending its power?

But there’s a thick presence of something in the place.

The current Haruka is fighting like a hyuman who has become one with a Spirit. It was as if a Spirit had manifested and had borrowed the vessel of a hyuman; that kind of strange state.

There’s no way one could create a convenient situation like that in reality, and whether it is a manifestation or a descent, if there was such an efficient way, anyone would be jumping at it.

Sif would be one of them.

She was burning the state of Haruka in her head.

In order to use it as a reference for the time when she summons an Earth Spirit, manifests it, and turns it into her own strength.

It is currently an impossible to fulfill goal, but she judged that the only thing she can currently do in this situation is to watch this fight and think for the sake of the future.

(Even so, something like this where someone aside from a Priestess is able to borrow the strength of the Water Spirit in this Lorel, there’s no doubt that there will be a gag order issued.) (Sif)

Even if they can’t tell anyone, it won’t dilute the worth of it.

“At that level is…where Shiki-san is.” (Amelia)

Amelia was looking up, not to learn, but as if she were confirming a resolve that was lying in her heart.

For her who has changed her involvement with the Kuzunoha Company not that long ago, it was an important sight to understand that the back of the person she aims for is at that place.

The figure of Haruka is still far away.

Amelia would be cut down in less than a second.

It is impossible to line up shoulder to shoulder. She thought that it would be fine to be three steps back from him, but as expected, her objective and her current position are way too far apart.

Even so, the figure of Haruka clashing against Raidou didn’t bring much despair to Amelia.

(Shiki-san is holding my hand and pulling me. Even if it is impossible right now, someday, I will definitely… I will also have Raidou-sensei acknowledge me as well. When that happens, it would be fine for me…to call Sensei as Waka-sama too, right?) (Amelia)

Well, even if she were to ask that of Makoto right now, he would have accepted that way of calling him while making a defeated expression though.

But for the sake of Shiki who guides her, Amelia pledged to this slightly deviated objective of hers strongly as she reinforced her resolve believing, not in herself, but in Shiki.

Tomoe, who was peeking at that state of hers from the side, showed a slightly tired expression with a tint of amusement as she lets out a small sigh.

“…It is incredible, isn’t it.” (Daena)


Daena mutters lowly.

Those short words of his gather the gazes of the students.

“That woman called Haruka was crazy strong. Even when she was not being serious, she was on a whole different level.” (Daena)


“And yet, even against an opponent like that, Sensei is able to fight her back. Corner her, make her pull out her cards, and make her bring out her all. And even with that, not only is he not pulling back a single bit…he is pushing her. Is the world such a vast place? Is it such…a limitless place?” (Daena)


“Adventurers, knights, or mages; native-borns, the Academy, graduation….. They are all conflicts on a truly pitiful level. The outside world is like this. Even if we were to look like absolute existences, there’s an absolute out there that can crush us. There’s no end……” (Daena)

There were no words in return.

Because the fight happening high up was truly on a whole different level.

Even if they can use it to better themselves, if they were asked if in the future they can participate in such a place, the answer would be no.

A battle of the chosen.

Anyone experiences the powerlessness of what they have done until now after they face moments like this.

But no matter how powerless you think of yourself, it is not pointless.

The words of Daena had despair and resignation in them, but no one was able to refute him.

“…Puh…haha…hahahahaha!! I see, I see. The chicks are worrying in their own chick way huh!” (Tomoe)

“Wa?” (Daena)

Seeing Tomoe suddenly break out laughing, Daena’s words were cut short.

When looking around, Mio had her folding fan over her mouth, and looked like she was holding in her laugh.

In the eyes of Daena, these two were chosen ones, and that reaction of theirs had agitated him heavily.

“T-Tomoe-san, a-at the very least… pufu…t-these children…fufu…are seeing the vanity of…pfft…their own…ufu…” (Mio)

Mio was trying to do a follow up, but it wasn’t making any sense.

The self-deprecating monologue of Daena had, for some reason, strung the cords of Tomoe and Mio.

“Ah…gangly boy with a child, your name was Daena, right? First, can I say one thing?” (Tomoe)

After having a good laugh, she took the trouble of walking to the front of Daena, placed a hand on his shoulder, and looked straight at his eyes before speaking.

On the other hand, Daena could only nod.

“Don’t get ahead of yourself.” (Tomoe)


“It is true that you people are the result of Waka and Shiki’s teachings and inquisitiveness. After obtaining strength unfitting to that of a student, you guys must be dreaming about the possibilities you have. Run to your heart’s content. But, don’t get ahead of yourself.” (Tomoe)

“It wasn’t my intention to get ahead of myself though.” (Daena)

“Listen here. Since Waka is not here, I can tell you guys in an easy to understand way without the need to be picky about the words. The ones that are currently fighting there are…” (Tomoe)


“One is a prodigy-ja. And, from what I see, only has one weakness. The very definition of a brave class that appears in fairy tales. The height of natural talent.” (Tomoe)

“…Then, the other one?” (Daena)

“A Great Demon Lord that not even that Brave would be able to do anything about —a monster-ja yo. There’s no way you guys who are currently ordinary people can even challenge one step into it, right? Even I would be wounded if I were to jump into that.” (Tomoe)

“True. Even I wouldn’t be able to do much with just a kimono. I would also be decently wounded.” (Mio)

Mio nods at the words of Tomoe.

Looks like Mio finally managed to escape from the laughing tunnel. Can’t let her guard down since there might be an afterquake.

“Listen well. Carve today’s battle inside your head, and when you think that your strength has reached its peak period, imagine that woman and try fighting her. If you can last a minute, you are plenty good-ja. If you are shouldering something that you can’t protect with that level of strength, it would be an issue of the article not matching its risks.” (Tomoe)

“One minute…” (Daena)

“That’s right-ja. It is that kind of fight-ja yo. For you people, that is. It will definitely serve as the best kind of measure.” (Tomoe)

“But Tomoe-san. You said ‘the height of natural talent’, but isn’t Sensei overwhelming her? To the point that even Haruka in that state is desperate…” (Jin)

“Jin huh. Idiot. What are you trying to measure yourself to Waka for? That in itself is what would be completely pointless. Go ahead and carefully look at his movements.” (Tomoe)

“Eh?” (Jin)

At the moment when Daena had closed his mouth and had entered thinking mode, this time, Jin was the one to ask Tomoe.

Must be because he felt something strange in Tomoe describing it as a battle between a brave and a monster.

Being asked this, Tomoe chided him as an idiot, and then, pointed at the state of the battle.

“A body that has been trained to the limits, and the technique, on top of that, the many healing spells that she has free use of thanks to the power of the Water Spirit. If this is not a prodigy, what would you call it?” (Tomoe)


A rapid-fire of sure-killing techniques thrown by Haruka.

Offensive, defensive, and evasion that utilizes the full of her power, technique, and experience.

Even when they are in a special terrain that is the sky, she was moving as if she were running through the ground, to the point that would make one think that she was a resident of the sky since the time she was born.

Erasing the opening of a swing with another swing, and erasing the opening of swinging both of the weapons in her hands with a spell.

Accurately reading the counter-attacks of Makoto, she would handle the attacks that she can’t evade by setting healing magic beforehand. There was no moment where her attack and defense would lossen.

Even if Makoto were to use the hyuman reflex to his advantage and deal attacks that not only are impossible to defend but even impossible to react, she would evade them by utilizing the forced movements of activating skills.

On top of that, she would erase the opening the skill creates by overwriting it with another skill.

Adding to that, there’s the traps and offensive magic of the Spirit power.

It is true that, if one were to pay attention, it is all overwhelming technique.

Her offensive and defensive abilities go without saying, but all the actions of Haruka felt as if they would serve as a learning experience for anyone.

It is truly a battle style that one would label as a battle prodigy.

But the Great Demon Lord Raidou was repelling them all to the point that one could only laugh at it.

That’s right, the Great Demon Lord couldn’t be defeated. It is a mass of unreasonableness.

“See? Even when she knew that she would be shot the moment she intercepted, she setup a post-activation magic to speedup, and is aiming for the neck of Waka. No, not only that. After doing that swing, she aimed for the heart from the back, and even if that didn’t succeed and a counterattack is dealt…she escaped further up. That last one, could it be the beginning movement of a skill that jumps up to cut down?” (Tomoe)

“…Incredible.” (Jin)

“Right? What that woman is showing is, in a sense, the best of a hyuman battle. A battle that goes a different line from Sofia and Hibiki. That’s why…that guy must have seen it as its chance and possessed that woman, but…it was overhasty.” (Tomoe)

Then, why is it that Jin thought somewhere inside his heart that Haruka is not that big of a deal?

The answer to the question that Jin had was simple.

Because the person that stands as his Sensei is overwhelming her.

That’s why…Jin thought that Haruka was, at most, at a higher place from them and was under-evaluating her.

“Well well, it really is a parade of fascinating high-grade technique. Even when she had a blank in her life because there was no equal opponent for her to fight against, she can still manage to pull so much skill-ja. Hyumans are truly fearsome.” (Tomoe)

It can’t be helped that, in the young eyes of the students, a proper evaluation can’t be made when all of that high-grade technique is being shot down.

“Yeah, really. As expected, hyumans, or so to say the human race in general, is truly fearsome.” (Mio)

Mio says with a pitying tone.


“She may be trying to hide in cleverly, but her fervour has changed. She is…going for the end.” (Mio)


The small change Tomoe and Mio felt was something that Jin and the others couldn’t see at all.

They could only watch over the fight of Raidou and Haruka who were clashing as always.

Feeling that the ending might be coming near, Iroha held the hand of Izumo tighter.

And then, he gripped back that small hand of hers while still looking at the battle above.

“It is about to end huh. The request of Futsu only smelled like trouble all over, but it ended up being a night with lots to gain.” (Tomoe)

“I managed to protect the miso and soy sauce, so a single all-nighter was plenty worth it.” (Mio)

The black and white naginatas of Haruka had left her hand.

For a brief moment, silence reigned the battle.

◇◇ ◆◆ ◇◇ ◆◆ ◇◇ ◆◆ ◇◇ ◆◆

Scared eyes.


This person is not fit for battle.

Her techniques and body are polished to an unbelievable level, but…there’s one thing.

Her heart is not there.

In a…different meaning from me…

If there were an opponent of the same level or higher, a meaning to battle would be born?

In regards to Haruka-san, that would be a mistake.

Until now, I have…moderately cornered her, and had her expose all the skills that she can use.

She had some revelations and growth within the battle, making the job quite difficult, but she probably only has her last plan remaining.

Haruka-san is scared.

Scared of injury, scared of defeat, scared of death.

She hasn’t conquered those fears at all.

Or more like, in all her life till now, she hasn’t felt that kind of fear and has managed to survive with her overwhelming talent —even when she was forced to the battlefield.

That part is actually miraculous, and makes me think about what a winner she is.

Being able to accept a High Spirit in her body even when she is not a Priestess and not lose her self-conscious, that in itself is crazy.

This is just pointless assumption, but if it were a one against one between her and Zef-san with only the things that one has been born with, he might end up being pummeled.

…In that sense, it might have been a blessing that Tomoki didn’t personally come in contact with her.


Haruka-san, who was heaving heavily, suddenly let go of her two naginatas.

The black and white weapons of hers didn’t fall and were floating at both sides of their owner.

“Is your resolve to finish this ready?” (Makoto)

“…I don’t plan on ending this so easily. Especially at this moment when I can’t even get to fight you properly.” (Haruka)

“True. You were supposed to teach me what fighting is, right?” (Makoto)


“Right now, the roles seem to have reversed though. Haruka-san, it is true that you are person overflowing with talent. Honestly, it is incredible. And you are hitting me with all the strength you have. I see. I can understand why the Water High Spirit would make a gamble like descending to your body.” (Makoto)

“…So you knew.” (Haruka)

“Well, yeah. Just that…in regards to that, it feels more as if this wasn’t all planned, and  simply that it couldn’t wish for a better situation than this. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to ask about this later. Wait, right now that’s of no importance.” (Makoto)


“…Haruka-san, you are scared, right?” (Makoto)


“I can tell. It is too obvious. Those eyes that were desperately -truly desperately trying to bite at me. They were fierce, unique, and more powerful than any I have seen before…and yet, I couldn’t feel the fighting spirit of a warrior in them. Craving for battle? You don’t have any of that, you know. If I were to speak of something I felt, that would definitely be to—” (Makoto)


It is not the time to say things like she wants to have a child, which would aggravate her maternal feelings.

I was about to say something like that, but I manage to stop myself.

There’s no need to go through the trouble of pointing that out.

For a woman, it is in their nature to feel the most happiness from having a child with the man she loves and create a family as they pass their life.

But for the blood-covered woman here, that might be way too late.

“Uh…” (Haruka)

“You undid the charm of Tomoki and left the Spirit as the controller -even if not completely- as you fought, not me, but your fear. Your heart was not together with you. Fufu, how to say it… You are similar to me.” (Makoto)

“There’s no one who would be happy to hear that they resemble a monster, you know.” (Haruka)

“So you admit it? That you are already not under the effects of that guy’s charm.” (Makoto)

“Kh.” (Haruka)

In that case, she should have surrendered.

With that, the fight would have ended.

And yet, she confronted me with her power and the power of the Spirit.

Was it her being conceited about being almighty? Or was it the influence of the Spirit that wanted to deal with me?

Those factors might have played a role as well.

“…..You were planning on dying, right?” (Makoto)

While fighting against her fear.

While devoting her all to her desire of not wanting to die.

This woman…was trying to die here.

“Learn that reading someone’s heart is the act of a low-life.” (Haruka)

“It is not as if I read it. It is just that you continued attacking me while shouting that in your heart. Even if I didn’t want to, it would transmit.” (Makoto)

“I…” (Haruka)

“The best end would have been for me to kill you, or die together with me. You were wishing for that kind of end.” (Makoto)


“Even if the charm has been undone, the past won’t change. The lives that you robbed away from others under your love for Tomoki; the inhyuman actions and attitude you continued taking towards the people that you should have truly treasured; those kind of things cannot be taken back. You simply regained sanity while maintaining those memories.” (Makoto)

It is way too cruel.

In the time that one is under the effects of the charm, the things that one does vary from person to person, but they are all to the point that would make one fall into despair and want to kill themselves.

It is on a level that killing them would actually be an act of mercy.

Is what I said, but in regards to this…there was no answer from Haruka-san.

Instead of that, I felt that an overwhelming mass of water power was being compressed inside of her, and while being knitted, it was about to come out of her body.

There was a slight feeling of resistance from the Water Spirit as well.

But right now, Haruka-san is the one who possesses all the rights in her body.

Looks like it has hostility towards me and is trying to give advice to Haruka-san, but it seems like it can’t force anything.

But the fact that she is able to properly utilize that power made me feel the hyuman potential.

Though, it may have something to do with her being familiar with the usage of the Hyakki Yakko that is related to summoning.

Even so…it really makes me see the incredible potential that the magic category of summoning has.

It might be because I am only seeing abnormally strong people like Azu-san and Haruka-san though… Yeah, when this is over, let’s consider consulting this with Shiki in whether to add this in the classes of Jin and the others.

“No way. This is the power of the Spirit —no, this is a combination of the Spirit power and the Hyakki Yakko…” (Makoto)

While I was thinking about the new theme of the class, 6 things that look like weirdly-shaped ice shields had appeared between me and Haruka-san.

For a second, I thought that she had managed to do Creation by utilizing the magic power of a Spirit, but…that wasn’t the case.

Calling Ayakashis that had good compatibility with water or ice, make them the core, and project them as equipment with the thick Spirit power.

I-I feel like it is more advanced than my Magic Armor.

No well, the Magic Armor is useful even until now, you know? I have no regrets in the time I spend to master it.

But you know, it took me a whole summer, and yet…she did it on the moment?

Even though she showed off coordination with skills and magic that overflowed ability… I see…she can do those kind of things in the spur of the moment huh~.

“There’s already nothing to say to you. Just break!” (Haruka)

Even if you tell me that with teary eyes…!

Six shields and two naginatas.

A close combat expert is using an 8 wielding style to approach a long-ranged type like me, and even though she doesn’t want to die, she has decided to die, and yet, she shows no hesitation!

I don’t understand!

No matter how I think about it, there’s no way those shields are simply shields.

I change my clothes to red and try to retreat at once, but Haruka-san, as if saying she doesn’t care, mindlessly chased me.

I keep the apparent-death needle that I had created and is in between the index and middle finger of my right hand, and for now, I try shooting the standby bridds against the six shields to see what happens.

Welp, their directions were bended.

The six Bridds didn’t hit the shields and flew towards who-knows-where as if avoiding Haruka-san.  

Then, next.

I concentrate on Haruka-san and one of the shields, and after confirming that they would hit the targets, I once again release bridds.

The power is a bit higher than the Moon spell.

If it hits, it should hurt quite a bit…probably.

Now then…

“Oi, seriously?” (Makoto)

In terms of results, both failed.

The bridd that hit the shield broke in an instant and became glittering rubbish.

It was probably frozen and broken.

Well, that one’s fine.

The problem is the one that was aimed at Haruka-san herself.

It missed…as if natural.

Accurately speaking, one of the shields that I wasn’t aiming at had instantly exchanged places with Haruka-san, and the bridd headed towards it and was deviated.

Of course, after that, it had the same fate as the other one.

It broke and turned into sparkles.




I am up and Haruka-san is down.

If I were to attack in this positioning and the attacks are deviated, it might create damage to the city.

But ending it with other methods…would not be amusing.

It is not amusing that I certainly pictured that it would hit, and yet, it missed!

To hell with those shields!

I harden the magic power close to my hand and spin once. And just like that, I use that hardened area as a foothold and kick it real hard.

In response to me trying to close the distance, Haruka-san deploys the six shields as if surrounding me, and does a combination of slashes and thrusts by controlling her naginatas, but I somehow managed to move past her.

The positions are now reversed, and now Haruka-san was up and I was down.

With this, I can go all out in testing it.

“It will only take a few seconds, so allow me to do it.” (Makoto)

I make the elements go wild while maintaining their firepower high, I set the target to Haruka-san and the shields here and there, and shoot.

A gatling of colorful bridds filled up the place between her and the shields that surround her.

“Eh? I intended to use that to buy time and analyze my opponent but…” (Makoto)

Haruka-san’s shields were crumbling one by one as they press forward.

The speed of their advance has not decreased much, but at this rate, by the time they arrive to where I am, all the shields that seem to be her trump card will be gone.

What’s going on?

“With this…!” (Haruka)

After the last shield was gone, she was now back to her original equipment, and with those naginatas, she released a technique that she had already shown.

But with only this, my Magic Armor won’t crumble.

Not only that…

“…Your weapons…have broken.” (Makoto)

“Yeah, they have served me plenty well already.” (Haruka)

“What are you thinking this ti—!!!” (Makoto)

My body can’t move!

This is like the time when I was hit by the ultimate move of those Marikosans!

I can still breath, but just what in the world…

“A…seventh one?” (Makoto)

At the right corner of my vision, at the place where there was nothing just a few seconds ago…there was now one of those shields.

It is touching the Magic Armor that is thinly deployed.


I see.

The bridds that touched these shields were frozen and smashed up. But bridds normally don’t freeze.

Cause it is made out of magic power after all.

It doesn’t have an actual body.

And yet, they managed to freeze it.

In that case, it wouldn’t be strange at all for those shields to be able to affect the Magic Armor in some way.

“No, it is the first one.” (Haruka)


Ah, so that’s how it is.

In other words, I was done the contrary of what Sofia did in the past.

I don’t know if it is easy or not, but that shield can regenerate in a relatively short amount of time.

Or it can fake out a crafty destruction in itself.

“Meaning that, you made them close the distance, and regenerate them close to me in an instant so I can’t react to them. That’s why you abandoned those naginatas. A rush in with the resolve of being defeated.” (Makoto)

As if confirming my deduction, a second and third ice shield had regenerated, and Haruka-san was now at close range, so I am currently being surrounded at quite the close distance.

“Yeah. Adding to that, the reason why I used them as shields was to make you misunderstand. Because I thought that, even if this is the first time you see something, you would still try to destroy them no questions asked.” (Haruka)

“…?” (Makoto)

Make me think…they are shields?

At that moment, it clicked.

Looks like…I have finished buying time.

“I probably…no, most likely no one in this world is able to kill you. In that case, there’s only one way to finish the existence called Raidou.” (Haruka)

“These are not shieldss but…coffins huh.” (Makoto)

“It may have been for a short moment, but this is the best method I could pull by using all my strength and the strength of the Water Spirit-sama. Now Raidou, let’s rot together.” (Haruka)

“So sealing was your—!” (Makoto)

“Six Ice Coffins, open!!” (Haruka)

Luckily, it is not as if my magic has been sealed.

I can’t move or undo the Magic Armor and it is sealing my own movements as well.

Too bad.

I still have teleportation magic.

With the spell that I am familiar with as much as bridd, I set the coordinates to the back of Haruka-san, and activate teleportation.

“…..Oi oi.” (Makoto)

But my familiar spell didn’t activate.

“If it is teleportation magic, the Water Spirit-sama was looking out for the spell formation, and has completely sealed it. It is pointless.” (Haruka)

Since when…

The presence of the Water Spirit inside Haruka-san has disappeared.

They have one upped me here.

“Hah…” (Makoto)

“Iroha, this mother of yours, please…” (Haruka)

Maybe she took my sigh as resignation, Haruka-san began to send words towards Iroha-chan.

They did read a part of my cards, but my sigh actually meant that it was great that this was all they have done.

In other words, they haven’t taken into account what comes further beyond.

That maybe there’s more left.


I look at Haruka-san and the six open coffins.

In my hand, there’s…Azusa.

Because I understood that the strength of my magic was lacking to destroy those coffins.

While I was buying time and was picturing myself ‘shooting through’ them, I learned about them.

A distance of around ten meters was opened between her and me.

Haruka-san’s face was dyed in surprise.

Her eyes were wide open.

The method was simple.

I have two means for teleportation.

One is teleportation through magic.

And the other is teleportation using the mist of Tomoe. This one is not even magic.

If I had to categorize it, I would say it is more of a skill. There’s no way the Spirit who dealt with the magic formation and aria of the teleportation would be able to deal with this.

As a result, I was able to escape from the encirclement of coffins.

Now then, first, the coffins that are tired from the Spirit power.

The next moment the arrows leave my hand, they didn’t draw an arc and were already penetrated in the six ice coffins.

Three coffins sealed the body, and the remaining three sealed time; these fearsome tools crumble this time for sure, and in time, the six Ayakashis that were pierced by the arrows fell to the ground.



‘Just like this, I will use Azusa to…’, is what crossed my mind for a moment.

That’s most likely the second wish of hers after all.

But that’s not the good choice for the future of the Kuzunoha Company and for this city.

It would only serve as self-satisfaction between me and her.

That’s why…

I once again create a needle from my fingers.

It is a bit long and thick to call it a needle, but this is how it turned out due to how I pictured it.

I raise my right hand overhead silently and set my aim.

Haruka-san didn’t move.

I swung down my hand aimed at her.

“Kh—ah…” (Haruka)

Letting out that short groan, Haruka-san, who had a needle piercing her forehead, fell down as if she were a doll with her strings cut.

I used the apparent-death needle like a kunai.

At first, I was thinking about finishing everything with these needles without using Azusa though.

Looks like I was pushed by her tenacity in an unexpected way.

“Hah… I want to take a hot bath…” (Makoto)

I would feel bad for Haruka-san if she were to crash onto the ground.

I held down my urge to have a bath…and land at her falling point beforehand.

“Welcome back, Waka.” (Tomoe)

“Thank you for your hard work, Waka-sama.” (Mio)

“I am back, you two, and also Jin and the others. Looks like everyone is safe. Great to see that.” (Makoto)

I respond to Tomoe and Mio who welcomed me back, and not long after, catch the falling Haruka-san in a princess carry.

Seeing that state, Iroha-chan was, as expected, showing a pained expression.

She didn’t avert her eyes though.

“It is okay, Iroha-chan. I hit her with the blunt side. She can wake back up the same as her other comrades.” (Makoto)

“Even though she has a thick needle pierced in her head? Please don’t joke around.” (Iroha)

It has been a while since we have had a conversation, and I even gave her good news, and yet, she gave back a bitter response.

She was holding tightly the hand of Izumo with teary eyes, and it was clear to everyone that she was doing her best to act like a princess.

“It is the truth. Hey, uhm…Kougetsu-san, right?” (Makoto)

“Eh? A-Ah, yes! Princess Iroha, the other people who are in the same state as her are simply in a state of apparent death. Thus, Haruka-sama should still be alive.” (Kougetsu)

When I ask for the help of Kougetsu-san who had been resurrected by Tomoe and had him secure the charmed group, he immediately caught on in what I wanted and followed up on my explanation.

He is an unexpectedly good guy.

“…It is…true. She is breathing.” (Iroha)

A voice of relief.

But big tears were forming at the corner of her eyes.

Too late huh.

Well, it is good to cry to your heart’s content.

It is such a crazy night after all.

She must have taken in way too much already.

That’s why I want to take a bath as soon as possible.

And then, not long after, Iroha-chan began to cry loudly.

Iroha-chan and her group, Jin and his group, Kougetsu-san, and us; it was only after a good while later that we were able to leave that place.

And in this way, the long long night in Lorel had come to an end.

458 thoughts on “Tsuki – Chapter 297: Puppet revolt, end

  1. Thanks for the new chapter!

    Oh man. Now this is classic TsukiMichi. Such an obscenely long chapter compared to World Reform that can’t even match up with three chapters at a time.

    1. Error Fix(?):

      “Go ahead and carefully look at his movements.”

      I know the sentence is preceded by Makoto, but it’s followed by a description of Haruka’s action, so maybe it’s:
      his -> her

      1. Just the door, or is it attached to a house? Your house must be big to fit an orca. And the size of the door…

  2. Such an obscenely long chapter that makes it hard to decide on what to comment about…
    Well, the only obvious thing is whether the Goddess is so ridiculously incompetent that she can’t even control her subordinates or if she’s an absolutely malicious existence that’s endangering the entirety of the universe by continuously provoking Makoto to the point that he overflows with enough power to accidentally destroy planets.
    Either way, Makoto is becoming way too strong…

    1. What to comment on? “Don’t worry little girl, the huge ice pick I stabbed into your mother’s forehead was blunt, so she’ll be just fine.”

      As for the spirit, it probably got provoked by him NTRing the moon like that, he has shown himself to be way too dangerous, so it took the chance to attack.

      1. I think the question is if it’ll violate the agreement the Goddess made with him.

        It isn’t the Goddess herself, but it is her direct subordinate which would still make her responsible should anyone decide to call her on it.

        I’d say what it did certainly counted as “interfering” with Makoto.

      1. It’s look like it , because she Saw Makoto power…..i mean they can’t just leve her like that right?

        Also Makoto said “you are like me” ,she is strong and i think she can’t no longer live there

  3. Am I right to say that the water spirit is attempting the same time that the waterfall dragon had in mind huh…

    To SEAL Makoto!!

    Now, I am interested to find out if the water spirit joining the battle is the instruction of the bug goddess or is it based on its own volition.

    1. Wouldn’t you see the guy that NTRed the moon, and did a “skyfall” with it, as a major threat? Waterfall was infected by Sofia, and saw part of the fight with Makoto, so she wanted him gone, the Water Spirit is being a bit more rational, I think.

      1. Quite legit.
        If the attempt is of its own volition, I kinda agree ur stand.

        If it is the order from bug, another reason for Makoto to punch her…

      2. skyfall…. i prefer to called it ‘PARADISE LOST’ XD like the skill from Lucio/Lucifer from Granblue Fantasy

    2. Why that gonna work when sealing and killing the same.
      They don’t even know how much power is stored within Makoto. And if he’s compressed so much, his dark side would bubbled up and expand so humongous it’ll destroy the seal.
      The most dangerous part this fools is playing fire to someone they have no idea capable off.

      1. welp…. the differ are when its SEALING the body and the soul still reside inside the SEAL while when it killing…. well…. the body mostly rot and the soul either gone or it become a vengeful ghost…

        1. Come to think of it, if Makoto’s spirit sticks around after he dies, it might be that even death isn’t such a big deal to him.

          Sure, normally the dead can’t affect the living and they go to Futsu or something, but…well… that’s “normally”.

  4. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    I want to see how Makoto would fare against Athena now if they have another bout.

    1. and after that there will be Karaoke party where Pies flying everywhere and 2 Gods drunk out on the floor, probably buttnaked….

  5. Thanks again for the chapter.

    This was a very satisfying chapter. I forgot how long Tsuki chapters normally are so this was great. Makoto sure has grown though huh, he’s being more considerate along with being even more OP than ever. I certainly wasn’t expecting something like a water spirit to intervene though. I had thought it was the Goddess in the previous chapter, but I wonder why the water spirit holds such hostility for Makoto? I hope we’ll find out, and hopefully if we do, I hope that the water spirit doesn’t turn out to be a Goddess 2.0.

    1. Water Spirit is powered by belief, and is therefore very attached to this country, Makoto just had the moon bombard the area with an unblockable, nonelemental attack of massive proportions, while holding back to no kill anyone….

    2. I’m more interested in the repercussions awaiting the Water Spirit.

      It apparently clashed with Tomoe and Shiki briefly, but now it’s either downed with Haruka or lingering around, distracted and weakened for Mio to step in.

      1. Oh yeah, that slipped my mind. Rather, I don’t even remember reading anything about Tomoe and Shiki fighting the water spirit in a previous chapter. Was there one?

      2. it probably when Tomoe and Shiki encounter Haruka and have to fall back perhaps ? thats when they sense the water spirit

  6. Finally closure to this part of the story. And now everyone there knows Raido is second only to the Goddess in power (at least for now). Wonder if Haruka will still try anything afterwards.

    That said, we still don’t have the conclusion to Tomoki’s actions. He was told not to mess with Makoto and he pushed his luck.

    1. Makes me wonder how the “heroes” would react if they saw this battle. Since they’re not here, I would love to read their reaction to news (most likely rumors since there would likely be a gag order) of this battle.

      1. If they are present during the fight.
        Most probably, they will join Haruka in her quest to kill/seal Makoto.

        They aren’t kind souls who will overlook such an OPPOTUNITIES

      2. Hibiki saw what can only be described as an orbital bombardment/surgical strike, back when that sentient cloud was about to kill her, and by now she’s put the pieces together that that was Makoto firing off an attack of some sort, from the neighboring country. It’s only the fools in Grittonia that want to poke this bear, I would think, but Limia may be gathering a thousand expendable lives (probably homeless demihyumans) in case they need to cast that ritual. It would all be in vain though, since that particular god is currently indisposed….

      3. Tomoe already iced that fool Water Dragon in her schemes to seal or revert-summoned back to Earth.
        Mio already warned Hibiki if she gonna do something foolish to her master.
        Let just see how well this heroine do something stupid.

      4. @psychronia what do you mean ? that damn door ? probably installed as a warehouse door…. just hope it didnt transmute into some kind of SCP

        1. SCP-XXX [Insert Moon Pun with Japanese numbering]: Envoy of the Moon.

          It’s a sentient, but mindless door that warps between worlds at the apparent instruction of a distant entity. After appearing, the door opens and a horrific being with the aura of an army of demons(hereafter named SCP-XXX-1) steps out to explore the immediate vicinity. SCP-XXX-1 remains peaceful if unhindered, but responds to hostility with extreme violence before resuming exploration.

          All instances end with SCP-XXX-1 returning through SCP-XXX. Once, it was recorded commenting “No, this isn’t the right place either.”

  7. Damn…
    So they do managed to get him serious…
    Just a bit, at the end, with Azusa and everything.
    Good job for the woman I guess, and terrible bad for the spirit.

    Thanks a lot for the chapter

    1. Can you imagine the Achievement music playing when she saw him pull out Azusa, he had to pull his bow, that’s as close to a win as you can get, and he even wanted to kill her, that’s a bonus.

  8. The Water High Spirit, huh? Did we suspect a High Spirit as a culprit during the last chapter? I forget.

    Anyway, if they get stronger with worship, then I guess a Water High Spirit + Haruka would make a decent test run against the goddess for Makoto. I wonder if the Fire and Earth Spirit are stronger than the others as well, since they seem to be low-key helping out the Demon race.

    There’s something hilarious about how Lorel has a “oh, and I guess we’ll worship Bug too” kind of mentality. The point about it having a lot of rivers and streams is news to me, but it makes sense.

    …Also, calling something “problematic existences that do whatever they want with a proud face” is nearly the pinnacle of hypocrisy, Tomoe-san.

    1. I don’t think that that Bug Goddess actually has any amount of actual combat prowess, so I don’t think there’s any need for a test run or even more power build-up…
      He just needs the ability to resist a God(dess)’s divine will, or something like that…
      But well, that’s just my opinion…

      1. Bug is very much an unskilled individual that relies on brute force to get what she wants.

        Don’t forget, in one of the bad timelines, Makoto picked a fight with her and it ended with both Tomoe and Mio both dying to save him. In this timeline, Shiki was paralyzed by her power just from being nearby All of them have been powering up since then, but we haven’t ever had a chance to make any good comparison so we don’t know if it’s enough.

        The sheer amount of power she has can’t be underestimated, since she’s still indeed a god. Is Makoto up to task? Honestly, we don’t know, and this is sort of testing the waters to find out.

    1. Why do you allow dog crap to exist in this world, when you have the power to hunt it down, and eliminate it? The answer, is that as disgusting as it is, it isn’t your problem unless/until you step in it.

    2. taking on the hero directly are the same with picking a fight directly with the bug goddess from the front, tho, makoto should have enough leeway to level gritonia away as a warning

      well i think lorel will retaliate against gritonia for this mess

  9. Lol… and to think big softie Makoto only used a bit of his strenght to fight the crazy woman…

    Thanks for the chapter!!! (and good to see the author is continuing the serie ^^)

  10. Okay sooo pleeeeassse author, he’s seen how corrupt and docheee Trashmoki and the empire are. Can he soon torture the trash and make him regret living

    1. The moment you try to eliminate the Empire for their atrocities, you will realize that the Kingdom of Limia has been doing things just as atrocious, but with a different slant, like instead of using chemicals to modify their soldiers, or making modern weaponry, they been using that Priestess they have to pour spirit power into expendable demihyumans, to make monsters…or something like that, it’s the nature of these kinds of things.

      1. Well the Empire is still worse as its influence by a maniac. Brainwashing the populous, making modern weapons such as guns which is wrong for that world, impregnating women charm by him as such false love and killing many lives as puppets.
        Limia may has it worse but the world is doomed if that maniac hero still alive. So he needed to die for good.

  11. Thanks for the chapter 😁

    Hopefully, Author-san would right about Makot and Co. curbstomping the living shit out of Trashmoki.
    Go Makoto, “liberate” Grittonia (what’s left of it anyway)

    1. Their plan to conquer kannanoi failed,they have lost several high class assassin and most likely lost 10 thousand people too… even if makoto and co. Leave them alone for now,that side might full of headache already.

      1. and there’s also the fact they make a mess out of lorel, i think, haruka alone are more than enough to fuck up gritonia now

  12. Whew , I already forget the last chapter . But I remember again with this amazing battle chaper . 39 translator-sama .
    BTW what is the chapter in the raw ?

  13. Eh? Is there some sort of thing being set up for Yuno and Misura?

    …Huh. I’m surprised, but it’s not a problem. Rather, I’m more interested in the development of Raidou’s monster chick students. This is once again Makoto bringing out his 1-in-a-million-ness to give them stimulation that’s going to make historymakers of them.

    Their interaction with Waka-sama’s wives is actually pretty freaking adorable too. Mio expressing approval and even interest was super surprising, but also very pleasant.
    Daena even made them laugh energetically there, which is a plus to everyone.


    1. Mark II…
      Mio has been working on the suits behind Makoto’s back I see. Yuno is going to get another punishment if she’s caught wearing it by Makoto.

  14. Thanks for the chapt!!! Also an unexpected one too, we need to thanks the author too, for finishing this chapt.

    Are we soon gonna expect “the student grows to heroes” arc soon?

    1. Do u think that hyuman without human’s blood (pls exclude Makoto) can turn into OP heroes without the blessing of bug/spirit/dragon/spider?

      If yez, then it will happen…

  15. Now this is over. After a bath its time for WAR! Against that idiotic hero!
    No more restrained. No more lives to be cut by that false messiah.
    Time to end that fool once and for all!!!

      1. Why not?
        Makoto had long before turn against her.
        He has somewhat prepared for that and wish to those 3 gods from Earth messaged him that the Goddess could do nothing in preventing the worst outcome of her beloved hero turn into a mincemeat by Makoto.

      1. I dun want!!!
        I want the Rembrandt sisters to kip their passions towards Makoto…

        Then, I hope they clashes with Tomoe and Mio, maybe the sempai and kouhai.

        Wait, why does it always comes in pairs with Makoto…
        1. A pair Sempai + Kouhai of club
        2. A pair of sister in zeno (the thief and artist)
        3. A pair of invincible (Tomoe and Mio)
        4. A pair of Rembrandt sisters…

        We need 4 more pairs to make it 2^4

  16. Thanks for the chapter, Reigo-senpai. When this gets updated, happiness goes around.

    Yeah… Haruka’s probably going to commit suicide later. But still… Trashmoki needs to pay for his crimes!!! Seriously, I always get more pissed off when he pulls this crap.

    one one thing that irked me:

    “It may have been for a short moment, but this is the best method I could pullpull by using all my strength and the strength of the Water Spirit-sama. Now Raidou, let’s rot together.” (Haruka)

    I think “pull” was meant to be used once.

    1. Tomoe managed to revive bloodstains on the wall and random chunks of flesh, unless Haruka can vaporize herself, defeating Makoto is probably the only thing harder than committing suicide.

      1. Oh god. I just realized.

        Makoto’s faction has always toed the line with Shiki’s presence, but now they can outright deny their enemy’s desire to die if they want to.

    2. Yeah, we talked about this last chapter, but this incident was a little too…big to ignore Gritona afterwards now. Even if Makoto doesn’t take action(which I think even he should), then Lorel Union should.

      As for Haruka, I’m hoping something happens that convinces her to struggle on living. She should be talented enough to get by with “just” mindrape PTSD.

      1. maybe if she become in Makoto’s follower ? i mean she is strong and i wonder if they just leave her like nothing happened.
        There is also the fact that she is guilty of killed a lot of people even if she was under mind control .
        i think is better if she joint to Makoto ,in that way she can also get a revenge and is a great addition to Azora army

    3. do you think once was enough when fighting Makoto ? :3
      and why its kinda romantic that she want to go together with Makoto~ does Makoto somehow trigger the MILF flag ? :3

  17. Muchas Gracias
    Aunque ya no recuerdo quien es Azu-san y no estoy muy seguro de quien es Zef—- En este capitulo nos estan diciendo que Yuno y Sif dejaran de querer a Makoto y se cambiara por un Yuno x Misura y un probable Sif x Jin ¿?¿?¿?

    1. Azu es el Assassin de los aventureros del origen, y nada que ver Sif y Yuno esas son de Makoto,ellas le tienen mucho respeto y cariño

  18. Ive been watching some E3 games and caught some “omae wo shindeiru” memes, and i think where haruka finally gets stab that i want to insert these meme, if an anime come to this novel LOL XD

  19. ooohhh~~~ what this about child, makoto. do you like to having a child with haruka?


  20. ” now raidou, let sleep together…in the coffin that is”(haruka)


  21. I hope I’m not the only one who thinks it’s kinda silly and cute for Makoto to childishly throw a mini-tantrum at “it missed even though I pictured them hitting!”.
    Besides that one “f*ck those shields, man” moment, the whole third act is Makoto exuding an air of casualness and simplicity, as usual. It was a pretty impressive battle, but as expected, Makoto remains peerless.

    What was far more interesting was Haruka this chapter. I don’t remember if we discussed it at all, but I definitely didn’t consider Haruka’s motive to be a death wish as a result of Tomoki’s charm. The death wish part, maybe, but I guess I still wasn’t giving that curse its due credit.

    Beyond that, I’m glad Makoto learned from his past mistake and properly spared Haruka at the end there(plus a styling princess catch). A little sad Iroha wasn’t part of the equation, but it’d be silly to expect that. Everybody’s unlucky sociopath boy has grown up just a little more, and that’s something to celebrate.

    …Oh, and Tomoe can perform True Resurrection now. That’s cool too, I guess.

    1. the reasons are shame for being controlled and her honor as warrior for betray her country i guess .
      I told you long time ago about Tomoe’s new ability, indeed it was resurrection.

      i wonder if Haruka Will joint to the team ?

    1. If he kills the “heroes” it would mean declaring an all out war with the BUG. Is he prepared for that?

  22. Thank for the update

    Okay, 2 thing:

    -As expect, no matter how high you climb the peak, you can never reach the moon. You going to have to leave Earth and humanity behind to be even be able to touch Waka-sama

    -If the whole high spirit thing is real, could we expect the High Moon Spirit-chan to come next and be the 3th (arguably 4th) OP wife?

    1. Didn’t Haruka did that too? Next milf wife ?(we have Loli and two onee-san) also i can’t see the moon being a follower ….that’s too much

  23. So will there be a spirit hunt and trashmoki probably dug a grave to china now right? i can totally see him peeing his pants when he finds out what happens or gets killed by accident by one of those arrows that he can shoot from across the world as a warning


    So the Spirits are powered by ‘Worship’.
    What counts as ‘worship’?
    Can they receive the benefits from their follower’s ‘worship’ regardless of place or does it have to be in some form of consecrated ‘temple’ or ‘holy land'(country)?
    Does each spirit have different standards on what they consider ‘worship’?

    Can Makoto be powered by ‘Worship’?
    *Remembers the ‘temples’ in Asora and the Asoran’s worship of Makoto.
    Oh wait! is he already (on the way of being ) (em)powered by ‘Worship’?

    Come to think of it can…no… will Makoto create a Pantheon(not necessarily his)? Is it possible to lure the ‘Anti-Bug’ spirits from the country of Demons into that Pantheon? He already NTR’ed the moon so….
    PS. Root as a goddess of lov…um..ecchi…goddess of ecchi.

      1. Her role would be like Emporio Ivankov of One Piece. Worship her to get free gender change… If that happens then this gamelike world will become more gamelike.

      2. On a serious note Root does have some similarities with Freyja of Norse mythology. Oh wait Aznoval has a Golden Wild Boar!! Author must have taken inspiration from Norse Mythology.

      3. well the author take reference of many gods from different culture not just Japan (Shinto), Hindu, Greeks, and Norse…. maybe there will be Egyptian gods introduced

      4. dicky Oh I made an error on that last comment. I was talking about Root, solely on Root. She kinda fits a lot of stuff from Norse mythology most specifically Freyja. Freyja has rides the wild boar Hildisvíni(wait did I even spell it right?) in battle.

    i didnt notice damn notification on mah phone … T – T)
    welp.. back to the topic… poor Azusa Yumi… only have a slight cameo moment… ganbatte-ne Azusa Yumi !!
    and the student just stand in awe and think they’re kinda just a bit below Haruka….. children please ! you cant even fight against a 2% power of the lizard-kin and you though you already on BRAVE level ? y’all need more smack and burrowed into the ground ! or get smacked by cute piggy Ema !

  26. A cunt, a sociopath, and a piece of shit walk into a bar. The buggy bartender opens her slimy mouth and asks them, “So what it’ll be?”

    The cunt steps forward first, all self-righteous and pragmatic in her demeanor. With a strong slam on the table she lets out an air of indescribably charisma and valiantly says: “I’ll have a bottle of hypocrisy.” Everybody in the bar claps.

    Before the sociopath could speak, the piece of shit is towed forward by an even bigger amalgamation of shit. With barely any sense of autonomy for himself, he passively lets the bigger one talk for him. From beyond the collection of bile and excrement a prideful feminine tone comes out of it wailing loudly: “We’ll have a heavy dose of manipulation! Hell! Get it for every lovely lady here as well and put it on our tab!” The ladies swoon at her declaration as both pieces of shit stand firmly as the bar’s stars.

    The sociopath quietly sneaks out wanting none of that. Stepping out of the front door, he feels something crawling on his head. Grabbing the source of curiosity he realizes that a lizard and a spider have sneakily landed on his head. They seem to like him. Not minding the company, he enters an alleyway and ventures forth towards even more questionably seedier establishments.

    What was the punchline? The punchline is that no one remembers Shiki.

  27. Isn’t the Fire Spirit and the Earth spirit allied with the Demons…

    So the Spirits have their own minds and opinion and can go against the creator. So the bug will not be held liable howeaver now that the water spirit have interfered with Makoto, i think it will not end up good for the water spirit especially i don’t think Mio and Tomoe will just Let it go..

  28. “an overwhelming mass of water power was being compressed inside of her, and while being knitted, it was about to come out of her body.”
    Ladies and Gentlemen, she was about to cum 🙂
    Haruka fell down, like a puppet whose strings had been cut.

  29. Thanks for the chapter Regokai, it was indeed an amazing one it was worth the months of waiting to reach this conclusion, expectacular figth, great resolution, and a profund learning expierence to everyone involved. Wondering what would be of Harua now. So was it explained why the Water spirit has such an agressive reaction to Makoto, it is the Goddes influence??

  30. This chapter was really good and i’m glad it ended this arc in a peaceful way. Students have gotten arrogant. They can’t even win against mist lizards 50%(while lizards are holding back their skills). I hope yuno doesn’t get ntr’d by misura now. Also i hope next arc starts about lorel warring against grittonia and makoto sealing water spirit as it wanted to seal him.

    1. You know, i would welcome if Yuno shifft interests from Raidou to Misure, one less girl for Makoto to worry about, and opening another venues of romance. Amelia comment was the best, when I reach that level of strengh i can call him Waka-sama as well. Whoao that girl is aiming high there.

        1. I know rigth, she is cute and fun to have around, but sh eis missing that appeal. Besides it would be funny if she is the type to act reserved and lady like to Makoto her sensei, and all brutish and bro like with her husband. It will make for some interesting comedic moments.

      1. Yeah, there’s no real reason to be protective of Makoto’s harem outside his direct wives, I think.

        It’s not like he’s lacking for candidates anyway, right? In this chapter alone, people are joking about Haruka joining the harem. And off the top of my head, there’s the Gorgons, his clubmates, and I think that one woman’s name was Ester?

        1. Rigth besides one of the jokes about Makot harém is that the people charmed by him need to have a certain “special taste” to be atrackted to him, having to big of a harém would destroy that concept.

      2. I don’t think yuna is falling for misura it’s more like she’s just beginning to recognize him more. I’m sure she’s still in love with makoto.

        1. I agree with you but I wouldn’t reject such a development even so. I think the author have enough skill to make that happens without feeling forced or out of place.

    2. Hmm.

      The war and Makoto sealing the Water Spirit are both logical courses of events, but both happening together could be…problematic for Lorel Union.

  31. “On the other hand, Yuno had her eyes sparkle at the sound of ‘mark 2’ and then, reminisced the fight she had together with Misura and nodded several times.”

    — Mobile Suit Yuno soon?

  32. Can someone explain to me about haruka wanting to have a child? Is it my impression or did she fall in love with the Makoto?

    1. Its just your impression, Haruka is not a warrior at heart, she is extremely talented, but she doesn’t walk the shura path, she would have been happier been a simple housewife, giving birth to children and pampering her husband. Not figthing and drenched in her enemys blood.

  33. I dont get this. She dont know makoto. She only hate him cuz of love charm. She only know he is strong when fighting him. So for no reason she deem him as a dangerous person and wanna seal/kill him? Wtf he saved ur daughter for crying out loud.

    On a side note it was be amazing if she became tsun tsun with makoto lol

    1. I think the idea is that she came to her senses too late. Since she already did all that awful stuff, she only has a death wish now, and Makoto was the best way to get there.

  34. After this, I wonder if a world war would break out or something like that. Lorel will want to retaliate and Gritonia has been wishing for a war some time ago. Then, on the one hand we will have an alliance (probably) between Gritonia and Aoin. For its part, Lorel allies with Tsige who wants to become independent from Aion. The next question would be, which side will choose the other world power Limia?

    Considering certain things such as … the continuous friction between Lorel and Limia, as well as that the second apostle of the goddess is currently in the Hibiki group, (being the first of them in Aion) naturally it will lead you to think that Limia will join Gritona and Aion. BUT!, the Royal Brains are not stupids (Of course, Assuming that Bredda did not replace to his father on the throne XDDD) nor Hibiki either. They know that Tsige is under the protection of the Kuzunoha Company and with them joining Lorel’s side, declaring war on the Lorel-Tsige group would be like choosing to fight against Makoto himself something that, with or without a powerful apostle of the goddess at their side, very surely want to avoid at all costs.

    Besides that, Hibiki does not get along with the hero of Gritonia either. Most likely they wish to remain neutral but the apostle would force them to participate in the war alongside Gritonia and Aion. In the end, everything would fall on Hibiki’s decision … stay on the side of the goddess and fight against Lorel and Tsige … or go over to Makoto’s side giving up practically everything she has (almost all her abilities were delivered to her by the goddess) ask her kouhai to remove the apostle from they and either declare their neutrality in the war or enter the side of Lorel (the latter would end the problems between both nations by Chiya)………………………….. I wonder if Hibiki will be able to make a ”heavy” decision as that.

    And this does not end here. Recall that, although small in comparison, there are other nations in the vicinity of the four major powers that could enter or be forced to participate (obviously by the Gritonia’s side) in the war as Rostgard for example or Kaleneon himself, who is basically a vassal state of the Kuzunoha Company (although not many know about this hehehe). I’m not sure if Kaleneon already has its own troops, I only remember some guards who protect the city gates, but that’s all. In any case, Kaleneon’s army will be formed in its entirety or at least 90% by the troops of Asora.

    And last but not least … The demon race … will take advantage of the disaster of the world to intervene?, Will it take sides with one side?. Would the Hyuman accept it? … or would it just attack on its own side, creating a three-sided world war?. Or they will simply not do anything to prevent Makoto’s anger about them and to let their enemies kill each other.

  35. Thanks for the chapter! Even if Lorel will put a gag order about the battle I think they can’t hide the moon spell that Makoto used. I also wonder if the red moon is only visible in Lorel at that time.

  36. Considering what’s happened so far, I can only imagine Haruka’s aftermath as being labelled ‘dead’ due to ‘unknown forces’ related to the gag order implaced on Lorel, when in reality, she’s probably living alive, well, and much happier in Asura tending to the hearth with DK’s daughter (I can never remember her name) and Tamaki.

    …Now that I think of it, if Haruka does join Makoto’s harem, that means she’s the only actual ‘housewife’, although MIo comes extremely close. Makoto was of the milf and onee-san faction, right?

  37. thanks for the chapter.
    “And in this way, the long long night in Lorel had come to an end.”
    A night of 7 mouths since chapter 290 and 11 mouths since 274.
    We already kney autor-san.

  38. Haruka is quite amazing. Inheriting numerous transported Braves’ superpowers. Stronger then Habiki, Trashmoki or even Zef the demon king. Makoto actually had to use the power of Azura & his bow to defeat her.
    But because of her being inffected by Trashmoki’s charm, she did terrible things before she broke free. She couldn’t face it & continued to lead the puppets. Seeking to be killed when she is the strongest hyuman fighter. Her OP existence left her mentally weak to defeat.
    It’s despicable that she continued after recovering herself. Willing acting as a puppet because she couldn’t face what she had done.
    Makoto not killing her definitely wasn’t merciful.

    Thanks for the chapter

  39. Thanks for the chapter. I almost thought that maybe that Haruka would have a time limit with the Water Spirit . That if the Spirit is inside a hyuman body for to long it would deteriorate by now since the body can not handle the magic power. I remember it happen to character who had a God in their body but it was destroyed at the end it might be different with a Great Spirit? After this battle the whole worshiping the Water Spirit is gone.

        1. He can chase it, can he?
          However, the matter at hand was the battle with Haruka so he had to finish it quick and also save her at the same time.
          Plus, the High Spirit seems immaterial so there is the issue of containing it.

          1. Is there maybe a ranking system for Spirits? Like in the series Seirei Gensouki there are Low Spirits, Average Spirits, and High Spirits (the MC has not meet a Great Spirit yet). But in this 1 there is a Great Spirit. Is there like ranking for Spirits here like low, average, high, and Great Spirits, or is there a series out there that tells us that High Spirits and Great Spirits are the same?

    1. Hey you, should read the first part of this chapter, there explained about the spirit…
      To sum it up, there are Low Spirit, Mid Spirit and High Spirit.
      There are innumerable amount of Low and Mid Spirit, but there are only 6 High Spirit that governs each respective element, and serve the Bugdess.
      Mm, thats what i comprehend in this chapter, i hope it can help you understand better. ^^

      1. Yes, it does. I was not so sure if there was difference between High Spirit and Great Spirit. So then a High and a Great Spirit are the same in this series.

  40. Kitaaaa, looks like im late to the party…
    Anyway, Thank you for the chapter Reigokai-san!

    Hmm, seems like haruka + water spirit is op enough to match tomoe or mio in terms of power…. Then, will makoto take him to kuzunoha company or to asora or even… make a pact with her?!

    Find out laterrr, in TsukiMichi next chapters or just asked Azumi-sensei XD

  41. Thx for the chapter o/
    such a long and good chapter~~
    it’s nice to have finally finished this fight, but i can’t wait to see what comes next

  42. ” fell down as if she were a doll with her strings cut.” is this some kind of meme in japan or something?

    1. It’s a meme among translators. I think it was started by Nigel who translates Overlord (with godlike speed). He often puts jokes into his preliminary work and for a while there was a puppet with its strings cut for almost every chapter.

  43. Amazing Bro !! could not imagin better ending of the fight saving the innocent and make the gulty pay ! Makoto’s way of doing stuff new target water spirit :)./

  44. by the way… I know Sairitz send the Kuzunoha to Lorel as some kind of a gambit, but I am curious if she realized that she almost caused her own country to be leveled to the ground.

    1. i would say the contrary, thanks to makoto being there, it came out to light what Tomoki has been doing, and that in time would truly have leveled all of Lorel to the ground or anex it to Gritonia, the exchange was a city, but still it serves to show how much of a monster is Makoto, as im sure at least something of this incident will reach Lily or some of the major powers, what im interested to, is about the Bug, since the High spirits work under her, and so far, Earth and fire dont report much since they are helping the demons and the living beings from their side, and now Wind spirit is the one that is missing the party, also, poor Misura, if Tomoe Boot camp is harsh enough even with her being more reasonable as a person, he is completely with half of his body on the other side of the Styx with mio boot camp, and the rest will get even harsher lectures

  45. What a stupid women. Thats all I can say about her. Even though she’s full of skill and power, there’s not much besides that, is there? Iroha is truly the spoiled princess in this chapter. The level of unreasonable things she asked of the protag is astounding, and she didn’t even noticed that her demands were of that level, even!

    1. When Haruka was under Tomoki’s charm and “in love” with him, she cheated on her husband whom she loved with all her heart and threw the daughter she lived to the wolves. She killed tons of people who resisted Tomoki and had plots to give him the country. She was able to realize she was under his geass and break free only to realize all the terrible things she had done. She only sees herself as less than worthless and is trying to have someone else kill her off.
      Due to the brain washing of the charm, she “hates” Makoto and hopes he will die with her. He knows what she is going through and is thinking and saves her because he knows Iroha still loves her and doesn’t want her to die. I don’t think he would have cared if Iroha wasn’t there.
      Honestly, Tomoki is the most evil person in this entire world. He is happily destroying families and countries because he can.

      1. I kind think it is that princess who is with who is doing it. All she has to do give him what he wants and please him and in return she him to use his geass on someone then she tells him what to tell them. To me Tomoki is an idiot, he may have the power of geass but the mastermind is that princess.

      2. Yeah man tomoki is so trash but ther is another factor that always spoyl him to make wrong path that factor is princes lily who want her revange to demon race so im not in tomoki side but trashmoki + vengenlily = real bastard

      3. Though she technically never cheated on he husband. She never actuallymet Tomoki and was charmed through the perfume, so she never slept with him, even if she wanted too. Still betrayed and tried to slowly murder he husband though so… yeah.

      4. The fact that Tomoki can charm people on Haruka’s level with just perfume makes you wonder how strong it is now in person. Before he was even able to charm Sofia to an extent and now he’s able to charm someone that is probably equal or just below Tomoe(minus the water spirit) with just his scent. Are we gonna get some NTR soon? It’s in Makoto’s family history to be NTR’d and just be ok with it afterwards.

        I’d be interested in Makoto having to fight his entire company under the effect of Tomoki’s charm. Hopefully it happens.

        1. That would count as attacking his family and would certainly be the one trigger that could set Makoto on a warpath.

          Sounds exciting, but probably should hold off on it.

      5. Tomoki ruined every alt world. Causing Makoto to go rogue in one creating deserts by killing of lily. Tomoki is evil no matter is the princess had been there or not. if he had not been a boy full of malice he would never have acted as the princess told him to. Power never corrupts anything power is power neither good nor bad, it merely brings out your true self. It gives freedom.
        I hope Lily can get her revenge on the goddess. in the end, all evil is because of gods and human desire. Conflict is all that prevents peace from corrupting collective conscience. Only during a conflict do people see good and bad.

        1. I don’t know about that. I mean, Tomoki is definitely an evil bastard and this is all his fault just like in the timeline we’re following, but I’m pretty sure it still counts as power corrupting people.

          Saying that it brings out your true self isn’t technically wrong, but to me, it’s more like it magnifies what’s already there. Tomoki was always an unstable, idiotic shit and he’s recently gotten the chance to act on it. Hibiki was always a proud and self-righteous person because she never lost. And Makoto was always a sociopath who doesn’t value life and let himself sink into single-minded obsessions.

          You can say that the evil was already there for all of them and power only amplified it, but if everyone always has some desires or malice in them for power to bring out, then that’s basically the same thing as power corrupting everything.

      1. the LN has not reach this point of the the WN…
        iirc the latest LN vol 14 is only at Makoto visit to Limia, it has not been translated and heck idk if there is someone who post the japanese version of the LN… if u found something, do let us or Reigokai-san know, since apparently there is some sort of difference or addition compared to the WN

        1. And for the Nth time I wonder why it is that people don’t look at the comments before asking pretty much the exact same question that has already been answered many times in the comments.
          The answer you ask?
          The web novel is on an hiatus, and the author is focusing more on the Light Novel version.
          We do hope that he’ll continue the web novel at some point, but we’re losing hope a bit since it’s been over a year since the last web novel chapter.

  46. Thank reigo sama m(_ _)m
    Headshoted woman with huge needle, say thats he used blund side…..
    Oh common sense Chan…. we need CPR right now… hang in there…

  47. Thanks a lot for the chapters..
    Finally I can see the conclusion for this battle,,
    can’t wait to see shiki plunge in despair for not seeing his master in action fufufu…

  48. Thanks for the REGULARor MAIN chapter first…

    So glad to see this arc coming to a close. It’s been overly long IMO but has also shown some growth and power ups for nearly everyone around Raidou.

    Now if he could only get laid…

  49. Thanks for this great chapter! Hehehehehe! All right, time for some character development! Remember what Makoto said at the start of this mess? Time to face the root of his hyuman discrimination! Time to face M-I-O!

    Ah, and after that give Tomoki a gooood beating!

  50. thanks for the chapter, I hope that in the next chapters again Makoto will give a good beating to Tomoki in such a way that he is locked in his room and does not want to leave more

  51. Can anyone please fill in what “azusa” is. I kinda forgot about it Ó( ° △ °|||) please n thanks.

  52. Yo estoy esperando que llegue la parte de cuando el se enoja con Rembrandt y amenasa al imperio destruyendo una montaña
    Diciendo por carta ” la próxima vez no fallere y no abra una segunda oportunidad” (así es como lo entendí)

    1. Contalo mejor , Rembrandt se junta con el imperio y ataca a Asora por eso se enoja con Rembrandt y le dice que su deuda con el ya fue pagada y Seba a arreglar el lío en el que se convirtió todo tal vez me falte algo importante pero lo dejo así para no arruinar la novela para todos

  53. I’m waiting for the part of when he gets angry with Rembrandt and threatens the empire destroying a mountain
    Saying by letter “next time I will not fail and do not open a second chance” (that’s how I understood it)

  54. Now, it’s official, Tomoki must die. And is it weird for me to wonder if Haruka will fall in love with Makoto??

  55. I didn’t know that I will have a blockade here lol.
    Finally, the latest chapter!
    Thank you so much for all the chapters and the soon-to-be out chapters to come out.
    It was a great story (for me, of course) to read. A naive mc guided by all the people he cares about which happen to be his awesome luck(lol) that’s always active going under his nose, unknowingly but he personally accepted it(seriously?).
    Well anyway, thank you again for all these chapters! 🙂

    1. I cant get why pointing shit like them liking makoto then changing it like nothing happens, i feel thats pretty shitty writing to be honest

      Putting so much emphasis on the change of sif and yuno when they were presented, and made pretty fucking obvious that if was thanks to their love for makoto, then after 3/4 events, changing it like nothing happens

      If your gonna make that kind of subplots about love, do it from the start, dont waste like 1 fucking volume talking about they and making emphasis in their love for makoto

      Like, why making like makoto in the first place if your gonna change it midway anyway? They helping him with the fans in the academy and joining his class could be done only by repaying a favor, this subplot about there love for jin/misura is fucking pointless, i coudnt care less about the love of them, so why making changes about it? Is there really a need to everyone of the “”””main cast”””” being in love/couple?

      Like, i really like jin, and i didnt care if he ends whit sif, but why tf you made her fell in love with makoto to switch later on? Is there really a need to make that pointless sublot that nobody cares?

      1. Well, i was pretty mad, that comment cool me down, but i really dont like that pointless subplot, is like in the next chapter amelia started liking makoto and forgot about shiki, or started liking jin, or some shit like that, i really feel its pointless, doesnt do anything for anyone and are the kinds of shit that made you stop liking a novel

        1. I don’t think it is a subplot, is more like a what if, a posibility that opens but nothing more. Besides we know for a fact that Makoto doens’t look at them beyond the daugthers of his benefector, maybe as pupils but no romantic interest at all (At leas he hasn’t showed some of that to anyone) and the ‘love’ they have for him given their age and life expierence (I think) can easely been some teenage fantasy that they embroided themselves on, and more that love thay are ever greatfull to him and feel loyalty. I mean I can be totally wrong but I think thats the take of things.

      2. You talk like the author dedicated 10 Tsuki-length chapters to their affection for Makoto, only to make it pointless afterwards. I don’t see what the big deal is.

        Firstly, it was never emphasized that much and what we got were just confirmation of how they felt for Makoto from time to time. I never saw it as such a big deal even when it did happen, and I certainly didn’t consider the sisters to be part of any serious “harem” that would go anywhere.

        More importantly, though, I don’t think this swerve is pointless at all. Of course Makoto would attract them initially. He’s their life benefactor both in a literal and aesthetic (which is vital in Bugworld) sense. On top of that, Makoto has always had this trait of captivating people around him, including Rembrandt, Lime, Eva, the various people in Academy Town’s underworld, and even Picnic Rose Garden (not to mention everyone in Asora).
        So why wouldn’t they fall in love? And as he cultivates them as a teacher and gives them deeper experiences with comrades unlike ever before, why wouldn’t they change?

        Granted, Azumi Kei has an…unorthodox way of presenting information sometimes, and you’re free to think it’s hit or miss (because it honestly is at times). But I consider stuff like this an attempt to add more depth to characters, not bad writing. You can argue that X is pointless and you don’t care, but I’ve always felt like TsukiMichi has focused on the world and people around Makoto with a distinct lack of detail regarding Makoto himself.

        It’s not the first time an MC is the least interesting part of a story, so at least the way this story gets to turn Makoto into a bad luck/eldritch meme while we invest directly into the people around him from the start.

  56. Thank you for the chapter.

    I love the dialogue between the students and with Tomoe and Mio. From what i get they are saying “Why worry with such a future where you yourself will not step in, be grateful of what you have achieved and strive more”
    I am still reading though can’t help but comment and be thankful for the chapter.

    More power

  57. OMG Finally after a long time of not coming back here I get an amazing surprise.
    Thank you for the translation and good work.

  58. when will the author write new chapter
    im wating ………
    stilll waiting……….

    Anyway thanks reigokai for uploading side chapters

  59. Does anyone know if the light novel has caught up with the web novel.

    Might be why there is fewer updates.

    1. Mm, the vol.14 LN, which is the latest, has gotten to the limia visit part, that is about chapter 216 in the WN. So i think the fewer updates ia not coz its caught up, but coz the author is focusing in the LN right now, or maybe the author/his family is sick… That i hope not
