QualiA – Chapter 31: Seeking the last fragment… ⑥

Evil Vanguishing Sword, Futsu No Mitama.

The ‘Concept Weapon’ that I created with the amalgamation of all my power at the time when I was a Demon Lord; my magnum opus. A katana that has a pitch black blade. The reason why I had a sakura petal engraved in the scabbard was because it is a dark past of mine where my blood boiled with eighth-grade syndrome.

The blade is made from an alloy of the Orihalcum which is called as the organic metal, and also the philosopher’s stone. The handle and guard are made from World Tree Branch, Lapis Lazuli Wings of the Fairy King, Blood Tears of the Demonic Beast King, so on and so forth… In summary, it is made from the highest class materials.

“Makoto, the color of your hair…and also the color of your eyes…” (Amalietta)

“Hm? Ah, this?” (Makoto)

When I use this katana, my hair turns white and my eyes turn silver for some reason.

I don’t need a setting like that that screams eighth-grade syndrome, but it is apparently a result brought about by the special properties of the mixed materials. Even if I wanted to take out that effect, I can’t. It might as well be a curse.

“It doesn’t pose any problem, so don’t mind it.” (Makoto)

“I-I see.” (Amalietta)

“Well then, let’s finish this quick… [Target: Poison Lizard Subspecies].” (Makoto)

I take a stance with the katana, and make an horizontal swing.

“[Judgment: Lifeforce – Cause and Effect].” (Makoto)

The Poison Lizards were watching us from afar without approaching us, but they let out a short cry and fall to the ground one after the other.

“…What did you do?” (Amalietta)

“I cut them.” (Makoto)

“…..You…cut them?” (Amalietta)

Amalietta tilts her head in confusion, but when I inappropriately laugh at her for her gesture being kind of childish, she turned red and averted her face.

Oya, did I anger her?

Futsu No Mitama is a katana that specializes in cutting. The blade is thinner than the regular katana, but it is more than ten times sharper. However, even if it can cut rock and metal, it can’t cut through what’s said to be the toughest material that are the scales of a dragon. Even if this katana can regenerate, it is when used at its best when growth comes about.

And so, I have endowed a special trait to this katana.

That’s ‘Cause and Effect’. It is a rule breaker ability that can rewrite cause and effect.

Putting it simply, it can erase the ‘cause’ of the dragon scales being tough, and have the world temporarily recognize the ‘effect’ that it can be cut. In that state, the dragon scales end up turning basically into papers that only have as much defense as tofu. What comes next would be to cut as much as you wish. When I am fighting a dragon, this weapon becomes a priceless treasure.

“Hmm, explaining would be complicated. Putting it simply, this katana can cut what it wants to cut.” (Makoto)

“‘Cut what it wants to cut’?” (Amalietta)

“That’s right. And so, I only cut the soul of the Poison Lizard Subspecies.” (Makoto)

“Something like that…” (Amalietta)

This is a demonic sword that I created to fight against a God that’s a conceptual existence, but it cannot cut a God in half with a single strike, and it cannot cut their life like I did just now. Gods really are messed up existences.

In the first place, Cause and Effect has the weak point that it cannot show 100% of its ability unless I know the name of the target.

There’s no problem if things like the race or group have a clear name, but there’s cases when nicknames can lower the effectivity, I try not to abuse it or depend too much on it.

As for Gods, even if I know their names, they are superior existences, so a weapon that was created by a human like me cannot defeat them completely.

Also, special existences like Angels, Demons, Divine Beasts, and existences that possess equal strength are not affected by the ability of this one-hit kill. It cannot do that, but it can still incapacitate them. I am currently improving this weapon to create a weapon that can kill a God completely, but the future is bleak.

Just now, the name of the species was identified, so it was possible. The Poison Lizards didn’t have any way to protect themselves against an attack that takes away life itself, so they died without any resistance.

“This is the first time I have heard of something like that existing.” (Amalietta)

“Must be…” (Makoto)

“Really, what in the world are you, Makoto?” (Amalietta)

“An alchemist.” (Makoto)


Oh my, those eyes of doubt are crazy strong.

“If possible, I would like to know the truth…but, it won’t be so easy for you to tell me, right?” (Amalietta)

“Why do you want to know something like that?” (Makoto)

While silently confirming the bodies lying around, I ask Amalietta this.

I try confirming with Parallel Research, but there doesn’t seem to be a Poison Lizard subspecies alive around the area. Looks like the attack just now eliminated them all.

“…Because I ended up…falling in love with Makoto.” (Amalietta)

“Huh?” (Makoto)

When I turn around to Amalietta letting out a dumbfounded voice, she was looking straight at me with a beet red face.

“Why? We met just a few days ago, you know?” (Makoto)

“I don’t understand either… However, when I was watching you fight, my chest throbbed. I thought about wanting to have a duel with you.” (Amalietta)

Isn’t that just you being a battle junkie? Also, I don’t think there was a single factor to make you fall in love with me, but falling in love with someone doesn’t follow logic to begin with.

Just like how I…fell in love with Esthella.

“Also…argh, why is it so difficult to express my feelings in words?!” (Amalietta)

“Now now, calm down. I understand your feelings.” (Makoto)

“!! I-Is that so.” (Amalietta)

“However, I can’t go out with anyone right now.” (Makoto)

The moment I said this, Amalietta showed despair and lowered her head slightly.

“T-That’s…because you already have someone you love?” (Amalietta)

“Hmm, it is…a bit different, I think.” (Makoto)

Just as Amalietta said, expressing feelings into words is difficult.

Esthella was a girl that I had truly fallen in love with when I met her.

If I were asked how I feel now, I had no choice but to say I honestly don’t know. It is not as if I hate her now. There’s no way I would end up hating her.

But I don’t know if that feeling I have right now is truly love or attachment.

A certain woman told me this while crying: ‘Don’t cling to a dead woman forever’.

A certain man told me this with an exasperated look: ‘Even if you continue having feelings for a dead woman, those feelings won’t be reciprocated’.

A certain woman told me this while laughing: ‘Running away all the time. What a pathetic man’.

I do think it is clingy of me…however, I also understand that I have to put a conclusion to it. I am sure that if she were to see me being so wishy-washy, she would snort at me. No, snorting would be pushing it a bit too much, but she there’s the chance she would scold me with an exasperated look.

She is the type that is kind but strict after all.


I have to move on already, right? It is pathetic to use you as an excuse. The man you fell in love with being like this is not cool, right?

“It looks like the subspecies has been dealt with, so how about taking a break?” (Makoto)

“R-Right.” (Amalietta)

Amalietta answers awkwardly, and we both move to the top of a rock to have our break.

☆☆ ☆☆ ☆☆ ☆☆ ☆☆  

Finishing a slightly early lunch, I begin preparing some tea.

Within this dense mood, the warm tea flowing down my throat was like temporary bliss.

“So, what are we going to do after this?” (Makoto)

“…Let’s see. Since there’s no need to search for the partner of the variant anymore, what’s left would be to exterminate the subspecies.” (Amalietta)

“Understood.” (Makoto)

Amalietta quivered for a moment there, but she is a seasoned fighter. She soon calmed herself and gave out clear instructions.

Before going up the rock, I took out the variant to check whether it was both male and female, and after a thorough check, there’s no mistaking that it was indeed an hermaphrodite.

It would be quite the nightmare if there were another one of those in that size, but well, now that one of the mysteries has been solved, we now just need to concentrate on exterminating the subspecies.

Maybe this served to calm Amalietta a bit, her face was showing signs of relief. However, she is probably feeling something else as well. Her glances at me every now and then were ticklish, and it also made a sense of guilt well up in me.

“Now then, let’s finish this quick and go back.” (Makoto)

“Right.” (Amalietta)

Finishing the tea in one gulp, I throw the complete tea-making set inside the bag, stand up, and look around.

Amalietta also stood up and looked around, and with long sword in hand, she said ‘I will be going ahead’ and jumped off the rock. I jump off the rock and follow after her.

I thought Amalietta was acting strange at the time she was fighting the Poison Lizards. It was as if she was distracted, or like, her concentration was dispersed. Her swordsmanship was lacking its sharpness.

For a moment there, I thought that she had been poisoned, but she herself said no, and after that, it looked as if sharpness had returned to her movements. However, her state was strange later as well, so I thought it would be best to return as soon as possible, so I brought out my best sword, which was most likely a mistake.

Amalietta was about to be hypnotized by the katana, and suddenly confessed to me…

I am not that hopeless of a human being to make fun of love.

Even so…love, huh.

To think that was the reason why her thoughts were dispersed. Cause you know, it is only been a few days since we met. But well, Ba-sama said that Dragonewts are loyal to the one they fall in love with, so it will probably be quite difficult to have Amalietta seriously give up on me.

Well, I don’t hate it though.

“—Oi, Makoto.” (Amalietta)

“Hm? What’s the matter?” (Makoto)

Who was it that said ‘love is not a single string’?

“You weren’t listening?” (Amalietta)

“N-No, sorry.” (Makoto)

“Good grief. You are difficult to understand, Makoto.” (Amalietta)

“I am told that often.” (Makoto)

I chuckled and Amalietta returns it with a weary expression and it looked as if strength had come off from her shoulders.

“Don’t lower your guard, Makoto. It is not as if it is over after all.” (Amalietta)

“They do say an excursion is still an excursion till you return.” (Makoto)

“Excursion?” (Amalietta)

“Don’t mind it. For now, let’s just think about other things after dealing with the matter at hand.” (Makoto)

I place my hand on the sword at my waist, both Amalietta and I nod, and walk on.

Answering feelings is not something easy to do, but a half-baked response would end up hurting her the most. First, there’s the need to have her understand me. While thinking that, I let out a small sigh, and while being cautious of the surroundings, I hurried ahead.


Time passed, and it was now the time of the evening when the sky had a tint of red.

…Result, we were able to exterminate almost all the Poison Lizard subspecies.

Complete eradication is close to impossible in this vast wetland belt, and since we have cut off the source, they most likely won’t be increasing further in numbers. That’s the conclusion Amalietta arrived at.

That’s only if there’s no other variant, but just to search for the possibility of one existing, there would be the need for quite the time and patience.

“So we are done.” (Makoto)

“Yeah. It would be impossible to investigate further.” (Amalietta)

“Then, should we withdraw for now?” (Makoto)

“…Yeah. I have to write a report, so let’s leave for now.” (Amalietta)

On the proposal of Amalietta, we prioritize the report of the reason for the abnormal breeding, and thus, return to the town of Rosuha to write the report.

“Ah, right. Are we going to be going back on foot?” (Makoto)

“Yeah, sorry for that. I didn’t have a clear schedule for when the investigation would finish, so I didn’t prepare a carriage for our return.” (Amalietta)

“I see. Then, let’s quickly go back.” (Makoto)

With a small nod, Amalietta said ‘right’, and we walk on to exit the wetland belt.

☆ ☆☆ ☆☆ ☆☆ ☆☆  

At the entrance of the Wetland Belt.

We had returned to the place we had departed from this morning, and set up the tent just like before.

“We finished faster than planned thanks to you, Makoto.” (Amalietta)

“Really?” (Makoto)

When I turn around in wonder, Amalietta was glaring at me with an exasperated expression.

“You saw through the subspecies that my appraisal couldn’t catch, and you even stored the whole giant body of the sudden variant inside your Inventory, and yet, you are telling me that’s not the case?” (Amalietta)

“…No, it is exactly as you say.” (Makoto)

Why is it that my instincts are telling me it is dangerous to deny it?

“I finished setting the tent.” (Amalietta)

“Okay~. I have also finished the preparations for the meal.” (Makoto)

On the low-height round table I set at the side of the open-air fire, there’s a variety of dishes lined up. My cooking skill has increased quite a lot with my six parallel world summons. At first, I could only make sad dishes like baking and seasoning it with salt and pepper. By the time I noticed, I could make most home dishes.

“Makoto, you are good at cooking too.” (Amalietta)

“Well, it was a necessity after all.” (Makoto)

“I should learn how to cook too.” (Amalietta)

I do want to taste the cooking of Amalietta, but why is it that I can only imagine her fumbling around in the kitchen?

“Why are you looking at me with those gentle eyes?” (Amalietta)

“…Live strong.” (Makoto)

“……Can I punch you?” (Amalietta)

How scary, oi.

“I was just thinking I would like to try your cooking.” (Makoto)

“I-I see.” (Amalietta)

“But for some reason, the only thing I could imagine was you failing.” (Makoto)

“Guh…that’s…uhm…” (Amalietta)

I have received a ‘guh’ of confirmation from the person herself.

“Anyways, let’s eat.” (Makoto)

“I will be cooking the next one, okay?” (Amalietta)

“I request for something eatable, okay?” (Makoto)

“I will do proper practice, so it will be fine.” (Amalietta)

Amalietta puffs her cheeks and then takes a bite of the steamed bread, and in an instant, her face melted into that of happiness as she continued to eat silently.

The soup with plenty vegetables has a gentle taste to it and came out pretty well. Eating the steamed bread by dipping it in the soup gives a new taste and is also delicious. I have also grilled meat as main dish, and in this one, I have used a yakiniku sauce that I replicated the taste of a certain famous manufacturer to an incredibly close extent. Ogon Karakuchi is the best. <Name of the sauce.>

“Hmm, delicious.” (Makoto)

“Yeah. This sauce…hngh, and the aftertaste…! I feel like I will get addicted to it.” (Amalietta)

At some point in time, Amalietta had a meat skewer in hand and was blissfully eating. She licked away the sauce that was around her mouth, and continued eating single-mindedly.

“Hey, Amalietta.” (Makoto)

“Hm, what?” (Amalietta)

“About what we were talking about before…” (Makoto)

A half-baked response wouldn’t convince Amalietta. She had her eyes round in surprise, but I decide to speak out my thoughts.

“There’s a woman I can’t forget about.” (Makoto)

It may be pathetic, but I have no choice but to have her listen to it -my true feelings.

“That woman is no longer present…because I killed her with my own hands.” (Makoto)

“—!! That’s…” (Amalietta)

“In reality, I wanted to save her…but I had no means of saving her. I pushed and struggled over and over, and yet…” (Makoto)

What am I even telling a woman I have just met a few days ago?

Even so, in order to answer the serious feelings of Amalietta, I have to return them seriously as well. Even if that means hurting Amalietta in the process. If I were to run away from this, I feel like I really won’t be able to progress a single step forward.

“I couldn’t save her no matter what I tried… That’s why I killed her. Killing her was the only thing I could do to save her.” (Makoto)


“She must definitely be thinking I am an idiot for still clinging onto those feelings till now. I have tried many times to forget about her, that I should move on already…but no matter how long, I still can’t forget her…” (Makoto)

The smile she showed me in her last moments is still burned in the back of my eyelids.

“I think…” (Amalietta)

That voice of hers was so low it could have been overwritten by the sound of the flickering fire.

“There’s no need to force yourself to forget.” (Amalietta)

But it clearly reached my ears, and when I directed my gaze at Amalietta, she was looking straight at me.

“Maybe because I pass all my days training, I am not well acquainted with love, and so, I don’t understand much about the subtleties between men and women. Thats why…I can’t understand just how much pain you are feeling, Makoto. I might end up saying unnecessary things that will anger you.” (Amalietta)

Heat steadily increases in her voice and gradually grows louder.

“Even so…Even so, I wouldn’t want to be forgotten…” (Amalietta)

However, it slowly got lower, her eyes dampened showing her emotions, and tears were wetting the corner of her eyes.

“—! S-Sorry.” (Amalietta)

“N-No, it is okay.” (Makoto)

Our faces were unknowingly at breathing proximity now. Amalietta hurriedly jumps back and hides her beet red face. I avert my gaze from that and look at the sky.

Wouldn’t want to be forgotten, huh.

Right. Moving forward isn’t synonym to forgetting. There’s no need to force myself to forget her. It is not as if my memories together with her will be gone after all.

“Even if I am gone…I probably wouldn’t want to be forgotten…”

Haha, right. She did say that too.

That I dreamed of her for two days in a row must be her way of scolding me. It is possible for that kind, strict, and meddlesome girl.

It looked like I was facing the past, but in reality, I was averting my gaze from it. She must have been irritated at that sight of me.

I do understand that this is just a convenient explanation I am creating here. I do understand, but it is pathetic how much worry I am causing. It truly is pathetic.

“Thanks, Amalietta.” (Makoto)

“No, I didn’t really…” (Amalietta)

“I feel like I have moved a bit forward.” (Makoto)

“…I see.” (Amalietta)

It is mysterious how Amalietta’s words enter my heart. I don’t know why, but it is by no means something unpleasant. Even though this kind of talks felt strongly annoying in the past… I truly might have moved a bit forward.

…Thank you.

After that, we didn’t have a single conversation, and until the time to go to sleep, we were passing the time absentmindedly watching and listening to the cracking of the campfire…

        1. That’s actually true. I actually rather let them be first to be honest. The last time I beat Seinvolf and GM_Rasaku (or however they spell it), I got accused of kidnapping a bot and a Nepu.

    1. stil Iron ?? after 6 reincarnation and he’s still Iron chef !? are there any Chef that have taken the title of Orichalcum Chef ? or Adamantium Chef ?

      1. you all clearly dont cook a lot. experience is like good ingredients, i helps make a good dish. but the most important part of cooking is love! love makes that dish into a meal. be it love for cooking, love for the ingredients, love for the eater, love for yourself, love for the dish, etc..

    1. The Evil Baguetting Sword? Perfect for every baker and lover of french bread?

      Sorry, I just had to.

      Thanks for the chapter!

      1. dang…. the ultimate sword is french baguette bread !? maybe some novel author from france will make that in the future

      2. Don’t look down on our Baguette ! Some of our cheese could kill (the nostril of) a dragon too you know ?
        If you ever saw a Yellow Vest with a baguette, just run away ! Run for your life !

  1. Yus. Dragon girl git! Bet she will force herself to go back to the kingdom with makoto and when the two kouhais see her they will get overly jealous. Huehuehuehue

  2. Tnx reigokai

    Though theoretically.. i feel like when makoto returns he’ll see that eshtella is alive again? (Since on the past chapters someone did something to the magic division leader amarayt? Also it said finally found you makoto.. and stuff about remembering who “it” was)

    1. Its from a God that pulled him to this world through its arrangement and MC knows it. Probably a yandere Goddess and the reason why the MC needs to kill Esthella.

  3. well Makoto….. they do say LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED for a wife that try their hardest when making meal for their loved one… but still…… just hope the meal still not kind of existence like Sinpachi’s older sister from Gintama…. that shit is the final form of all cursed cooking in the Universe

    1. Shion from Tensei Shitara Slime is another example of logic defying cooking to the point she literally has to break reality with a skill so that her cooking becomes edible.

  4. thanks for the chapter typo i think
    : but it cannot a God in half with a single strike, and it cannot cut their life like I did just now.

  5. thanks for the chap. honestly, i have not much to say. my mind is in disarray right now. but, why cling to old world culture where 1 man:1 woman. it’s other wolrd dude, raise many flags and collect em afterwards.
    like a certain demonking-sama said, “screw it, harem route it is.”
    also there’s a saying, ‘women will flock around the strong man,’ i think.

  6. I am just glad that there was no “What did you say? I didn’t hear you just now even though I have superhearing and can hear a frog croaking on the other side of this planet. (Let’s just ignore her because I am a damn asshole that just doesn’t want to think about the serious feelings of others)” – scene.

  7. i see some unexpected word of “CONFESSION”.. quite early.. mostly will take longer chapter to reach the peak but not quite yet i see.. i don’t see Psychronia around.. mmm let see.. BY MY COMMAND I SUMMON THEE TO Summarize this CHAPTER” APPEAR Psychronia.. hope it works..

  8. Damn makoto dont be stubborn and accept new girls already.i thought u wuldve forgotten ur dead love already and moved on but meh. Took u a long time to move forward a littlebit

  9. …I really hate harem stories. I’m not sure where I’m going with this, but I’m just gonna rant until I find my point. In case I don’t, let it be known that I’m declaring Amalietta a good girl and cute maiden that made a good heart-to-heart scene.

    There’s a lot of reasons I hate harem stories, but I think the biggest reason is because a lot of them are just written terribly. There are those that are written out of laziness, in which case we just get a bunch of shallow girls that are more living tropes than people. And then there’s those that are written for wish-fulfillment, and those are usually bad because the main characters are usually horribly bland to make projection easier. And both types have a habit of jerking the audience around with zero progress like the typical ecchi story-not that the two genres are mutually exclusive.

    And it’s not like I’ll be happy if if a harem story manages to avoid all these pitfalls by having good characters and good progression either. Because then it becomes a problem of having too many good heroines that you don’t want to see heartbroken, or you have to allow for an actual harem/open relationship, which I find to be its own big problem in terms of ethics, culture, and writing a healthy relationship.

    World Reformation sorta did that, but it managed to justify it with literal gods and most of the ladies were obviously not harem members. I’d have definitely gotten angry of Haine managed to seduce a bunch more women and his wives accepted it just because.

    …Ah. Found my point. QualiA is doing a great job of making a lot of likable girls so far, but it better tread as if it’s on thiiiiiiin iiiiiice… ಠ_ಠ

      1. I used cultural difference to simply the issue, but basically yeah.

        The thing about polygamy is that it comes with a whole different set of rules from monogamy and vice versa. And if a harem just happens without dealing with any of those differences, then it’s a stupid harem.

        For starters, polygamy is used in societies that want to increase their population, want to show off that they’re able to sustain a large family, or want to spread a bloodline. Royalty had it because it’s important for the stability of the country to always have a consistent head of state in case of emergencies.
        Even in cases of monogamy, people used to have a bunch of kids all the time because the chances of them surviving to adulthood is low and the value of manpower was high. In modern first world countries, though, children are normally kept to 2-3 at most because they’ll most likely survive to adulthood and an education-based society means investing more resources into each individual instead of getting by on bulk.

        Except when the MC is a literal monarch, these reasons shouldn’t apply. The whole point of being overpowered in an Isekai is to be able to make the fantasy world’s life better-for the MC if not for the world. A MC shouldn’t be having heirs with the mentality that only some will survive to adulthood.
        Someone that comes from a monogamous society should be treating their children and spouses the way that society does, which doesn’t support a polygamous system at all; it’s the so-called “common sense”, and if the MC’s common sense overrides the fantasy world’s at every turn, why is this single part the lone exception?

        And I haven’t even gone into the issue of Dunbar’s Number. It’s the concept that a human brain can only sustain about 150 stable relationships, which is going to be even smaller if we’re talking about sustaining the much more intimate romantic or familial relationships.
        Even if we argue that characters like Makoto are freaks of nature monsters and that their brains can operate above mere mortal capacity, they’re still limited by time, energy, and resources. Unless they are physical gods (and sometimes even then), there will be a hard limit on how big their family can get before they end up neglecting parts or all of it.

        Uuuuuuggggghhh. *plops on the ground* …Even with this wall of text, I left a lot of holes that warrant further discussion. That’s why I just summed it all up as “culture clash”. If a story mindlessly jumps into harem-collecting without addressing this problem-which even I think is more trouble than it’s worth, then I’d consider it a story that’s made worse by its harem.

      2. I see. Well, I know more or less what I wanted to. Your way of thought is by no mean shallow, but I dare say that it may be a bit “too profound” for this case…

        Yeah, I can agree with most of what you said above, but what I don’t get is… why does it matter in a novel – a purely fictionnal world ?

        Of all the harem novel that I have read so far, I never found (for the MC at least) the logical reason for polygamy that you mention above. It’s was thing like love (irrational thus not logical the slightless), desire of possession or simply lust if I were to resume bluntly. They don’t go down the harem route with a logical reason on mind.

        About the 150 relationship limit you mention, it’s may be so in reality but we’re not here. Plus, we mustn’t forget that our author, one person, must actually manage an ENTIRE world and all that it’s imply. The 150 relationship limit is very quickly hit as he must also manage the relationship of others characters. He got no choice but to free himself of such rule (except if we saw the world from the inside of just one characters but that’s not the case here).

        And lastly, I read novel for freeing me of reality. What I want in a story is a SENSE. As long as it’s make some sense, I don’t mind even thing that I don’t approve in reality or thing absolutly unreal, like most of the harem MC I guess ? ^^

        In resume, I don’t think it’s relevant to try to apply too strictly the reality on a fiction world. A minimum is required for the sense I mention above I guess but that all.

        P.S. : Just in case, I don’t do so for annoying you (stop drilling holes in me with your doubtfull eyes please… ><) but because I thought that your thought were not shallow and I always enjoy discussing what orther may call "philosophycal useless content" with someone that share the importance of such thing.

    1. I picked up more on most Harem stories end up with bad/lazy character writing as well as unrealistic reactions from the wife mildly accepting the result rather than the cultural difference… one of the reasons I’m surprised novels like “In another world with my smart phone” managed to get an anime adaption, considering I dropped the novel really early on

      1. Yeah, cultural differences are just one part of my argument. The biggest issue is that it tends to lead to terrible writing, whether in the form of unhuman reactions from the wives or just terrible characters in general.

        I actually got through much more of the novel translation of Smartphone than I expected to. The anime didn’t really do it justice because it couldn’t show the MC’s thoughts, which left everything else bland. Not that there isn’t a lot of better Isekai out there that deserve an anime more than Smartphone ever did. I know I would have loads of fun with an anime of Release That Witch, for instance.

        But…eh. A few people apparently got into the Isekai genre thanks to it, so I’ll cut it some slack as a gateway.

  10. this guy really is a rare kind of MC
    now I’m curious about the other worlds he had gone through since he goes there it should be unteresting right?
    thank s for the chap~

  12. Thanks for the chapter Regokai-sama. Well we see now that out cheat character still has some growing to do. Wondering if MC can’t convince a craftman God to make him a weapon.

    1. I think Hephaestus could probably hook him up. He’s the Loki of Olympus in that everyone goes to him when they really need a problem solved with wit. Actually, he’s kinda compatible with both Makoto, isn’t he?

      For Misumi, he’s an extraordinary ugly individual born from attractive parents (in fact just a normal face among divine beauties), that got rejected, but climbed back up to power. Athena should totally introduce them. He’d probably have fun with the crazy stuff brewing in Asora.
      For Kamiuchi, I think he’s one of the few Greek deities that’s purely nice to humans and never had a story where he punishes them. It’s always him vs. douchebag gods. At least, I don’t know of any such stories.

      1. Now thats an interesting guy to have around, he would problaly guet along well with all those dwarvs. But yes he has quite some tragic background in Greek mytholgy, first he is rejected by his parents and literally throw away, then he always guets somehow cheated on his delas (well not always), even though he has one of the most important roles in Olympus he is subestimated like no tomorrow, and he never guets the girl. The only chance he got married, he got completely cheated on, at least he went out there and got his revange.

          1. Well he us a olympian God those guys had quite the bedroom reputation, even if he had 50 kids with different women he would still be the unpopular guy on Olympus.

  13. Thank you for the chapters. I don’t know how to express it very well in words but for me these kind of things keep me sane. I need distractions in my life to try and hide myself from the many stresses and bad things that seem to plague my existence. No matter how many things I fix or overcome there’s never an end to the trials I face.

    I know you’re just translating another person’s story but it has a ton of meaning to people like myself and I hope you’re able to keep doing it and be happy. If you celebrate any holidays, happy holidays to you. I don’t say thanks very often for the chapters because I sometimes don’t have access to the net and then end up binging what I haven’t read. Thanks again for these stories, bringing them to a place where others can take place in these fantasies, really makes my day/night/evening/morning.

    Take care.
