WM – Chapter 74: The Fujiwara Company is popular in the capital

“Ooi, I’ve got the provisions provided by the Fujiwara Company.” 

“Not only that, we apparently can also get clothes.” 

“It really helps us with the children…seriously.” 

“The employees of the company are all cute beastkin, so it really heals me.” 

“Maybe I should apply for a job there…” 

“The requirements for men are apparently strict.”

The capital of Horun is currently in the middle of recovering from the damage of the monsters.

The area where the Giant rampaged had the most damage.

There’s also a lot of people who had their homes destroyed and now have nowhere to live in.

The country and church are providing temporary residences to the victims of this, but there weren’t enough goods.

Especially food and clothes.

The ones who read the situation the fastest and sent support were the Fujiwara Company. In other words, the company that Fuji-yan manages.

…Seriously, he is just way too amazing, isn’t he?

Is he really the same age as me?

On the day the monsters rampaged in the capital, he returned to Makkaren in his Flying Ship, gathered as many people and goods as possible, and came back.

By the time the other nobles and companies were finally able to give their personnel support and their goods, the goods of the Fujiwara Company had already reached all the affected people of the capital. 

“Fujiyan-san is amazing, isn’t he?!” (Lucy)

Lucy says this while looking at the children in the shelter playing around.

“Alright. Follow the order, okay? Don’t go skipping the line~.” (Aya)

Sa-san was passing around candies to the children.

Now that I think about it, Sa-san had 4 little brothers.

She was dealing with the kids as if used to it.

In these few days, Lucy and I have been helping out in cleaning out the rubble together with the adventurers, and restoring the houses.

A world with magic is nice.

Big pieces of rubble can be delivered easily by using something called Levitation Magic.

Lucy and I obviously can’t use that, so we were cleaning the old fashioned way.

We do get rewarded by the Adventurer Guild for this.

Sa-san is good at cooking, so she would work as a volunteer with Nina-san in cooking meals, and keeping company to the kids.

Lucy and I finished our work for today and had come to pick up Sa-san before dinner.

“Alright, this is the last one. Ah! Takatsuki-kun, Lucy-san.” (Aya)

“Good work, Sa-san.” (Makoto)

“Must be tough, Aya.” (Lucy)

“Nah, it is fun to play with the kids.” (Aya)

Even though it must be tough to do this continuously, Sa-san didn’t show any signs of being tired and had a smile on her face.

What a great girl.

“Let’s go back to the inn. I think Fuji-yan will be returning today.” (Makoto)

“He has been moving around all the time as of late.” (Lucy)

“Should we call Nina-san too?” (Makoto)

“No, it looks like Nina-san has to look after her store employees.” (Aya)

“She has it hard… Even though she will be marrying soon.” (Lucy)

“Yeah.” (Aya)

The two girls had eyes of pity. 

I see. It is true that Nina-san is engaged with Fuji-yan together with Chris-san. And yet, it is unfortunate they have been caught in this incident. 

“Let’s return by ourselves then.” (Makoto)

“Yeah.” “Okay~.” 

Finishing our jobs for today, we return to the inn.

◇◇

At dinner.

“Maan, we finally have the chance to see each other.” (Fujiwara)

Fuji-yan says with a loud laugh.

Chris-san at his side is completely exhausted.

“Are you okay, Chris?” (Nina)

“Aah…Nina, it has been a while.” (Chris)

Nina-san seems to be taking care of Chris-san, so it will probably be okay.

“Thanks to Fujiwara-kun, the children seem to be energetic even without their houses.” (Aya)

Sa-san had a smile on her face.

“It seems like you were helping out Nina-dono, Sasaki-dono.” (Fujiwara)

“She was a great help! Sasaki-sama’s ability to deal with children is godlike.” (Nina)

“I have been taking care of my little brothers a lot after all.” (Aya)

She scratches her head embarrassed, but that’s just like her. Really, all the children of the capital seemed to really like Sa-san.

“By the way, Takki-dono, I heard about it! It seems you have defeated a Taboo Monster again!” (Fujiwara)

I don’t know where Fuji-yan heard that from, but he throws the topic about a few days ago at me.

“Oi oi, don’t thoughtlessly say that out, Fuji-yan. It was the combined power of the Glacial Hero, Prince Leonard, and the adventurers who were there.” (Makoto)

I answered in a slightly jokey manner.

—The Taboo Monster was defeated by the Hero.

That talk is currently circulating in the people of the capital.

The day a rumour spreads that ‘the young hero was about to be defeated by a monster’ will be the day the people of the capital will fall in fear.

This was the move the royal family and the Adventurer Guild pulled.

The Capital’s Guild Master personally requested of the adventurers who were in the battle of the Giant to keep it low.

Of course, the shush money was from the royal family, so it was a large sum.

“Geez, Makoto, giving your achievement to someone else again.” (Lucy)

Lucy said with a tone of amazement.

“But that kind of stuff is cool, isn’t it?! It is like a hero that protects everyone in the shadows.” (Aya)

Nice way of putting it, Sa-san.

“In the first place, it was thanks to Princess Sofia that I was able to defeat the Giant. It is not like I gave my achievement away. It is technically as if the royal family was the one who defeated it.” (Makoto)

“…You synchronized with Princess Sofia, right? What a fearless man you are, Takatsuki-sama.” (Nina)

Nina-san had a flustered expression.

Well, it was an emergency, so it couldn’t be helped.

“Synchronization is that, isn’t it?” (Lucy)

Lucy seems to be remembering the experience of the past, she made a complicated expression.

“Did something happen?” (Chris)

“A long time ago, I synchronized with Lucy, and had my whole body burned.” (Makoto)

“I see… That must have been rough.” (Chris)

Chris-san had a surprised expression that seemed to not really get it.

“Hey, Lucy, give me your hand.” (Makoto)

“Eh? What?”, she says while extending her hand to me.

I grabbed her hand, and synchronized.

“Haau!”, Lucy quivers.

“Hot!”, and I was attacked by a heat as if I was doused by hot water.

“W-What are you doing?!” (Lucy)

“Ah, sorry, sorry. My proficiency increased, so I thought that maybe synchronizing with you would go well now, but…it didn’t work at all.” (Makoto)

Isn’t your mana wilder than before, Lucy?

She has the Great Sage Skill that allows her to use Fire, Water, Wood, and Earth, so I should be able to synchronize with her. 

Our body compatibility is bad.

When thinking in that way, the compatibility with Princess Sofia was good.

“Pervert.” (Lucy)

Lucy mutters this with a red face and straight eyes.

“How rude.” (Makoto)

No, suddenly synchronizing with her must have lacked tact. 

“Hey hey, try it with me too.” (Aya)

Sa-san grabs my hand.

“It is better not to, Aya. It feels tingly.” (Lucy)

“Now now, it is okay, it is okay.” (Aya)

She gives me an upward glance.

Sa-san isn’t a mage, so I wonder what would happen.

“Synchro.” (Makoto)

But nothing happened.

“…I don’t feel anything.” (Aya)

“Looks like it doesn’t work if you don’t have a magic skill.” (Makoto)

“What, that’s boring.” (Aya)

Sa-san is a close quarters power type after all.

She apparently has mana on the same level as regular people.

“Takatsuki-sama, Takatsuki-sama, I have Mid Earth Magic, and Elementary Water Magic.” (Nina)

Even Nina-san took interest and extended her hand to me. 

Or more like, you had water magic, huh.

I have never seen her use it.

Of course she wouldn’t, it is the weaker one after all.

I was about to grab the hand of Nina-san when…

[Will you synchronize with Nina-san?]

Yes

No ←

…What?

What’s with this option? 

It didn’t appear when I did it with Lucy or Sa-san.

In front of me, there’s the face of Nina-san in excitement looking forward to it.

Her rabbit ears were going up and down.

This person is going to become the wife of Fuji-yan.

I don’t understand the reason, but I feel like I should not choose Yes.

I have a bad feeling about it.

“Lucy has the Great Sage Skill, but the synchronization failed just a while ago, so let’s not. Looks like I am not doing well right now.” (Makoto)

“I see…” (Nina)

Nina-san looked disappointed.

(Even though that was your chance at NTR.) (Noah) 

What are you saying, Goddess-sama? <Don’t ask Fuji-yan what that means, Makoto! For your sake, don’t look it up. Just think of it as ‘stealing her away’.>

◇◇

“By the way, this time’s incident. It seems like the ones behind it were the devilkin-desu zo.” (Fujiwara)

After a while, Fuji-yan said that.

“Devilkin?” (Makoto)

What was that?

“What is that?” (Aya)

It seems Sa-san doesn’t know either.

“Devilkin are apparently a race that have the mixed blood of demons and humans. In the dark times 1,000 years ago, at the era when the demons ruled and the humans were left alive as slaves, there were apparently many of them born. They are the survivors of this.” (Chris)

Chris-san explains.

“The devilkin are a race that don’t have a country. Or more like, they are a vagrant race that have never had a country. They have been changing from the west and the north continent constantly. It is said that many are currently living in the ruins of the Moon Country…” (Lucy)

“The devilkin are a race hated by both the humans and demons.” (Nina)

Lucy and Nina-san add.

“Haah…so there’s racial problems even in an isekai.” (Makoto)

It doesn’t change no matter the world.

“Were they the ones who caused this incident?” (Aya)

“That’s right, Sasaki-dono. I was actually investigating the background of it, and it ended up taking several days-desu zo.” (Fujiwara)

“““Eh?”””

He was even doing something like that while supporting the refugees of the capital?

What’s with this person? That’s scary.

“That’s right! Danna-sama suddenly found the culprit from within the refugees!” (Nina)

“I was scared. Just thinking about what would have happened if he had been stronger than Nina…” (Chris)

Nina-san was excited while Chris-san trembled.

“And so, and so?” (Aya)

Sa-san seems to want to hear the rest. I am also interested.

“We simply handed the devilkin that seemed to have been the culprit over to the knights-desu zo.” (Fujiwara)

Fuji-yan answers while laughing.

“Lying is bad, Fujiwara-sama. When you handed over the culprit to the knights, you were even able to accurately tell the knights about their hideout. I clearly remember the strained expression of the devilkin at that time. Just when did you investigate that…?” (Chris)

Chris-san retorts in amazement.

Isn’t it that?

The cheat skill of Fuji-yan doing its work too well.

“No no, it wasn’t that big of a deal. Compared to Takki-dono, the danger was low.” (Fujiwara)

Fuji-yan is being humble here, but this is seriously impressive.

We all celebrated each other’s safe return, and enjoyed a long awaited meal with everyone reunited.

 The next day, we were called to the Rozes Castle.

The one controlling the place was the cool beauty, Princess Sofia.

This person has been working around the clock as well. It must be hard.

“Merchant Fujiwara, you have my heartfelt thanks for your contribution to the capital. The generous amount of goods and donations to the people. And even helping out in the capture of the devilkin that were moving in the shadows. Thanks to you, the lives of many were saved.” (Sofia)

“I only did the natural thing as a person living in the Water Country of Rozes-desu zo.” (Fujiwara)

Fuji-yan lowers his head respectfully. 

How impressive.

“Do you have any wish?” (Sofia)

“Actually, I am going to be marrying the daughter of Makkaren, Christiana-sama.” (Fujiwara)

“I see.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia didn’t get surprised and just nodded.

Eh? Are you going to speak out such an important thing here?

Is what I thought, but this is something I heard of later. A few days ago when returning to Makkaren, Chris-san reported to her family that she would be marrying Fuji-yan.

They apparently questioned her a lot, but the capital was in a state of emergency, so she managed to hurriedly convince them.

Of course she would be exhausted after that.

“If I am to receive land and peerage, I would like it to be close to Makkaren.” (Fujiwara)

“Understood. Then, I will arrange it as so. I will be communicating the details to you at a later time.” (Sofia)

“Thank you very much.” (Fujiwara)

Looks like their talk has been wrapped up.

With this, Fuji-yan will be joining the nobles, huh.

Moreover, with two wives.

…I feel like Fuji-yan has gone to an incredibly faraway place now.

What’s with this feeling?

It is like when meeting an old friend after a long time, and he has become a company president or something like that.

No, that’s not a good comparison, huh.

“Next, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Sofia)

Being called by Princess Sofia, I walk forward.

“Your accomplishment in defeating the Taboo Monster is greatly appreciated.” (Sofia)

Eh? It is spread around that it is supposed to be Prince Leonard though. Is it okay to say that here?

I looked around, and Prince Leonard was looking over here with sparkling eyes.

Well, it is all relatives here, so there’s probably a gag order.

—Here, Princess Sofia takes a deep breath.

What is it?

I don’t need a peerage, so I am fine with money. 

Aah, but Fuji-yan is a noble, so…is what I spaced out thinking when…

“Takatsuki Makoto, I will grant you the title of Hero of the Water Country of Rozes.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia says straight.

…Huh?

      1. Well no, but yes.

        She now has feelings for him! Even with her Cold Heart skill that is gonna effect her. We saw that Cold Heart is inferior to Calm Mind with the Taboo Giant. She faltered but still stood, while Makoto was 100% fine.

        That means it does not block everything! Now that she has fallen for Makoto, that will always affect her. She is not trying to tie him to the country, but to herself!

      2. no no no, cold heart skill is actually superior to makoto’s calm mind skills, the reason why sofia is faltered during synchronization is must be because synchro with mage with very high magic proficiency is feel so damn good.
        lucy claimed that synchro feels tingly, but i bet doing it with makoto is actually as pleasant as having sex

        now we can congratz princess sofia for being an adult. she’s now a woman who remembered the taste of dic- i mean synchronization.

      4. It doesnt sound like a trap and is more likely that they wanted him to belong to the water country (they are the most weak military after all). Before they told about what happened with the other summoned ones so probably they dont want that the story with the light hero repeats again after all Makoto will go to the sun country. For sure they want him to become a hero for the water country and when he get enoguh achievements make him marry Sofia.

      5. nope I think he should accept it. if he rejects it then the story will lose it interests and I mean it will be pretty fun if he accepts it and there will be many people who will underestimate him,then he will prove hes worthy ….. I wanna see that.

      6. I think the skill cold heart works more to cool down the feelings of the user so he/she can concentrate his/her mind, while the clear mind affects directly the mind clearing anything that may trouble the user ability to think. It may be a little difference but the results might be really like we saw.

    1. ?? They arent strong military wise so left go Makoto to the sun country and that they apoint him like a hero or even a knight for sure will be a failure like rulers. The country (and the Royal family) will lose face if they keep losing talented people that was in front of them.
      What i dont understand is what about the prince. They told before that he was the hero of the water country. Or maybe is something like honorary knight and Knight like?

  2. So he refused to synchronize with Nina. Kinda makes you wonder if some of his denseness is just a front. As for the whole hero thing, I think most jp MCs would say no as they are really into the whole low key thing. I wonder if he’ll be different.

    2. To be fair, he’d synchronise with Nina if there wasn’t a choice box. But given there was suddenly a choice box, it must affect the “story” in a long term so his instinct told him to stay away from a future problem.

        She knows that synchronisation needs someone to touch other person. So when she said he was quite bold to do that with princess, she meant he was quite bold to touch princess considering he’s just a commoner.

        @Kucing Nyan
        And yeah, that’s why RPG skill is really a convenient feature for him. At very least, he knows when his choice could affect the “story” significantly, so he could reconsider what he does. When someone said that Makoto has a plot armour in previous chapter, I’d say he does have plot armours because of the RPG skill and the goddess (more inclined to the skill), just like how Reiji (Isekai Mahou) has a plot armour because the goddess favours him.

    3. There is a chance that this might actually just be Makoto and his high magic proficiency. Light pleasure might be a known side-effect, but not to the level that Makoto can produce with his level of skill. There is also a chance Aya can learn to feel it if she ever becomes more sensitive to her mana as well.

  3. Makoto is smart. He sensed he was about to do something bad to his friends future wife and stopped himself. This just proves that the main head of the Makoto harem is Fuji-yan cause Makoto takes care not to harm him.

  4. Aight, after re-reading the Translation once more, and taking some notes here and there in inconsistencies, i’ve made a little analysis as to how this story will progress. Before starting this long analysis though, let’s just talk as to why Sofia potentially wants Makoto to become a hero:

    a) It would be beneficial for Leo growth
    b) As my instinct told me that Sofia already investigated Lucy and Aya, i bet she knows that they are the type that will support and partially force Makoto to accept
    c) It would anchor Makoto responsibility directly into protecting the water country
    d) It would remedy and potentially grow the relationship between Makoto and Sofia (no surprise here)

    Now that’s out of the way, i have calculated the possibility of the future arc and here are the result

    1. (45%) A hero crisis will emerge as a result of Makoto accepting the title , this is the result between 2 factions, old generation that cling into the idea that the heroes of water country must be from water country, and a new faction, spearheaded by Fujiwara and Sofia most likely, that count based on result, not bloodlines.

    2. (35% ) Makoto refuses, but accept being a teacher for Leo as a basis of “training the hero” and Leo will join Makoto party, personally this is the least i’m excited about, since this seems a cheap way of forcing this WN into a “MC becomes teacher ” situation, if this choice is the correct one , i have reasons to believe that Leonardo will most likely become the second Noah believer, on what basis, i couldn’t tell you because the situation i envisioned is a bit of a stretch, anyway, most likely, the next arc will deal with Leo self confidence, we saw that Leo has what looks like a bit of inferiority complex and anxiety (not surprising considering his circumstances)

    3. (20%) Makoto completely refuses, saying that he didn’t want much, but are forced to received some sort of special gift from the Water kingdom, i have 2 proposal as to what it is which is
    a) A promises from Princess Sofia that she will support Makoto, this is the “comedy” way of making Sofia joining the harem, but the most likely one
    b) A special permit from the Water kingdom, what that permit is, i don’t know, this is pretty unlikely, but a possibility nonetheless.

    That’s my analysis folk, catch you all later, in the next ending of an arc where i might update this again,

    1. I forgot to add fifth reason why Sofia wants Makoto to become the hero which is
      e) This will became the basis as how Sofia might break the engagement proposal to Sakurai and announce that she will be marrying Makoto, a “hero”

      1. Most likely the fifth. Sofia falls in love with Makoto and at the same time her country needs a new hero because the previous heroes got stolen by rival countries.

  6. What is NTR? Anyway, chapter was pretty nice. How come the screen doesn’t come up with this major decision? I think he’ll accept the position. Just a hunch. Thank you, Reigokai.

    Like

    1. Oh, you sweet summer child. NTR is “netorare”. As opposed to “vanilla”, which is a pure straightforward love, NTR refers to having the protagonist’s love interest being taken by someone else. It dwells in the twisted fetish that combines arousal with a deep personal feeling of loss, inadequacy, etc. There’s also “netorase” whereinf the protagonists revels I’m seeing their lover being embraced by someone else. You may have noticed, but these genres are most commonly seen in pornography, but it also exists in web/light novels – especially when the main protagonist is a target for bullying early in an isekai story.

      It’s better not to look too deep into it, unless that’s your fetish.

  11. I would like to know how Noah knows what NTR means…

    Well at least Makoto isn’t so dense that he wouldn’t stop to think why his skill suddenly activated when Nina tried to get him to synchronize with her and instead declined to do it with her. He ain’t about to do something to his best bro’s soon-to-be wife.

    Well now Fuji-yan will be a noble and he has more political clout this time so he can choose where his lands and peerage would be unlike last time where he’d have probably just been made a noble of the capital and would have been separated from Nina and Chris which is probably a major reason he refused peerage the first time.

    I guess Sofia making Makoto a hero is mostly because of her dere side showing. She was all tsun once she was alone and had deactivated her skill, calling Makoto a vulgar man while her face was going beet-red over remembering the sensation of synchronizing with him. Well another reason for making him a hero could be because of the Cold Heart skill letting her see it is logical to tie a strong hero to the throne who can also help teach the prince.

  12. Thanks for the chapter!

    Devilkin are apparently a race that have the mixed blood of demons and humans. — Lucy was mixed Elf/Demon wasnt’t she? … yes, according to Chapter 16: “My mother is an elf. But my father isn’t. My mother married a demon somewhere, and I am the child.” . So if the Devilkin are a “race hated by both the humans and demons” then Lucy has some cause for worry.

    And that suggests a reasonable deal for Makoto and Sophia to make. Since Rozes is apparently less racist than most other nations, she can guarantee a home and citizenship for Lucy and Sa-san if Makoto becomes the hero.

    1. I noticed the discrepancy as well. Although Lucy is the child of a demon and an elf. I remember during those chapters she was worried about discovery as well, but maybe with the Elven parent she is different enough to be ignored in this case.

      Like

      1. It’s more like to elves, she is a mixed race but to human she’s an elf. The author builds her background story around this.

        In scientific perspective, it’s also like that. You’re prone to think a different race from you is different compared to your own race, that’s because you’re more used to see your own race when you’re baby. There’s a research (forgot the source, sorry) that basically concludes that baby could identify the subtle difference on everything but when they grow up, they lose the ability to do that because they just focus on the different in their own race instead. This case is for a homogenous society, like Japan for example, in a mixed society, well just change “their own race” to “their own community.”

        So since they’re not familiar with demons (assuming elves are “common” in a human society), they just think she’s an elf. If that society is more familiar with a demon but not a elf, then they’d think she’s a demon. If they’re both familiar with both, then she can’t do anything more than be thought she’s a mixed race.

    Good thing Taki-dono dodges yhat bullet!

    Sneaky princess, the water hero huh, and Makoto just happens to be the hero. Heehee I can already tell Lucy is looking at him urging him to accept. Or maybe she isn’t hmm…

    Either way I bet Leo-chan asked for this to happen and Sofia agreed. The only question is will Makoto accept? It would be interesting indeed if he did but I get the feeling he would rather decline. Aargh! Darn it I hope this is actually a forced event! Even if he doesn’t want it he should be forced to take it!

    Noah get one there and press him to accept! Fuji-yan egg him on as well! Don’t let him pass this up!

      1. Good point! Hoping it will be that. Can you imagine his reaction “but I didn’t do anything. It was the combined efforts of everyone else that protected the capital”

        “You stopped a taboo giant on your own”

        “I could only do it because the Princess was there”

        “You created a Novel monarch Grade spell, an ice Phoenix”

        Hoooboy can’t wait to see all the juicy situations come out of this!

        (Oh just in case it isn’t clear that above was my guess at a hypothetical scenario.)

  14. Oh also does anyone know why Makoto didn’t get burned by Lucy’s flames during this times Synchro?

    I felt for sure he would burn. Unless it is something that takes time for it to happen

      1. Possibly, more than likely probably. He may also only have lightly dipped into her magic rather than diving in.

        Also isn’t it worrisome that her magic is even more of a maelstrom than before? Isn’t she meant to be able to have better control now? Could the sage’s gift have been poisoned so to speak? We don’t really know her end game even a hint as to her intentions do we

  15. Looks like a Hero really did stop the taboo monster. Look at that. KEK. I wonder if this is a ploy to piggyback on his achievements and make it so Sophia can start a relationship with a Hero and secure the prestige?
    Leonard is absolutely smitten and he is adorable.

    Thank goodness Takki had the instincts to say no. I admit I wanted to see Nina’s reaction, but it’s not worth tugging on the bromance with Fuji-yan.

  16. Thanks for the chapter! ^^
    That was indeed a close call with Nina. Thanks RPG Player skill! x)
    I’m really wondering what Fuji-yan is reading in the mind of the Princess at the moment of granting the Hero title?
    Something like: “Stay c-c-calm and focus! Do your job and grant him the title! D-d-don’t think of the synchronisation! Aaaah! What am I thinking about?! Do your job Sophia! Don’t get distracted!!!” ^^
    Meanwhile Leonard must be like: “So cool! Makoto will become a Hero like me! It is so great! Makoto is the best!” x)

  17. What a underhanded method Princess Sofia throws at Makoto.

    In this case, Makoto was really now pinned down at Water Country.

    Though, there were so many privileges to follow up after the announcement officially, theres now way Makoto would be able to socialize to all people with GREAT expectation to him in the future.

    This will test Makoto determined heart if he can take the challenge or not. Maybe he can view it as a great way when advancing his main goal of Saving Noah.

    If he achieve more, i am expecting at some point in time, Princess Sofia will tell him about the Cold Heart, and they will talk about their respective skill while it has been turned off. I wonder if the masses will push for Princess Sofia and Makoto as couple in the future…

    1. All things considered, this is a boon for Takki with the main negative being more marriage proposals in his future-probably with Sophia herself.

      On the other hand, the prestige, authority, and fame he’ll get will go a long way to undermining the new gods when he beats the Great Demon Lord and reveals his connection to Noah.

    1. Well Sofia said she’s granting him the title instead of asking him if he wants to be a hero so I don’t think he can refuse. Besides, Noah told him to get close with the princess.
