WM – Chapter 75: Takatsuki Makoto makes a choice

In this world, there are two types of heroes.

The first one is the heroes chosen by the Goddesses.

Sakurai-kun who has the Skill: Light Hero.

Prince Leonard who has the Skill: Glacial Hero.

These are the people that the Goddesses gave the Hero Skills to.

The second one are the heroes chosen by the country.

For this one, the adventurers and knights serving the country are the ones who are apparently the most chosen ones.

In the Fire Country, Great Keith, the winner of the martial arts tournament that is opened every year, becomes the Fire Country’s Hero.

The objective is to keep the strong people in their country.

The Water Country currently doesn’t have a country designated hero.

Well, it didn’t have anything to do with me, so I didn’t pay it any attention, but…

“Takatsuki Makoto?” 

I returned to my senses.

My mind had flown elsewhere for a bit.

“M-Me, a Hero? But…” (Makoto)

To think I would be told this.

I thought that I would be getting money or a peerage at most.

A Hero is the symbol of peace for the country.

Because of that, they are not allowed to lose.

The responsibility is way too big…

“This is not forced.” (Sofia)

Oh? Is that so?

I thought for sure she would be ordering me.

Then, it should be okay to refuse—.

“If you become the Hero, the lodging expenses, food expenses, equipment expenses, will all be shouldered by the Water Country of Rozes.” (Sofia)


Wow! It is like a japanese politician! 

“Also, you will be getting 10,000,000G every year as a prearranged payment.” (Sofia)

Even a salary.

I am getting a bit scared now.

What are they gonna make me do as a country designated hero?

“The Hero in principle will have to participate in the subjugation of the Great Demon Lord. Currently, it would be the Northern Expedition Plan. The plan will be taking place from next year on, so this year will simply be preparations. There’s no other plans for any big job.” (Sofia)

Eh? Really?

Isn’t that a bit too lenient?

I am interested in what this Northern Expedition Plan is though.

“Also, regarding your residence, I would like it if you were to live in the capital of Horun, but it seems you like Makkaren, so it is okay to continue staying in Makkaren. We do have a lodging for the Hero in the capital if you so please.” (Sofia)

Truly given everything.

To think they would go this far.

Just that…I am the Apostle of the Goddess Noah.

That would mean I would have to convert into the Water Goddess’s religion in order to become the Water Country’s Hero, right?

…I can’t do that. Let’s refuse.

(Makoto, you can accept if you want. I will speak to the Water Goddess about it.) (Noah)

Eh? You can do that?

Aren’t the Holy Gods the enemy? 

(Leave it to me. The Water Goddess Eir is a girl that you can reason with. It is okay to not be converted.) (Noah)

Do Gods have their associations between each other? I don’t understand that well.

I have been given the okay from the Goddess.


I look at my back.

I look at Lucy and Sa-san.

Lucy seemed to be moved, her eyes were going all damp.

Sa-san is making a face of ‘isn’t that great’.

Nina-san and Chris-san were making faces of surprise and positive smiles.

Fuji-yan being the only one who has his mouth wide open in shock is bothering me a bit though…

“Takatsuki Makoto… I won’t tell you to answer at once. You can take your time and think about it.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia is way too kind! 

What is going on? 

It is just that…

“I will consider it.” (Makoto)

~ A few days after ~

“I thought about it carefully, but I think I will refuse.” (Makoto)

Yeah, it is impossible.

That would be way too rude…

If I am going to refuse, I have to do it now.

In other words, if I am going to answer, now’s the time.

RPG Player Skill activates.

[Will you become the Water Country’s Hero?]



Looking at that choice, a fuzzy feeling and memory resurfaced in me.

The game I liked when I was young.

The remake of a famous RPG.

The main character was a hero.

He received just a little amount of gold and a torch from the King.

He didn’t have comrades.

He defeated the monsters all alone, raised his level, faced a dragon, saved the princess, defeated the Demon Lord, and saved the world.

It was cool.

The me at that time wanted to become a hero.

Of course, with me being a highschooler now, I don’t think about becoming a hero though.

…No, that’s not it.

At the time when I arrived in this parallel world, I was jealous of my classmates and Sakurai-kun.

I was burning with envy towards their powerful Status and Skills. 

Being scouted by the important people of the countries, I watched as they went off one after the other, and was unable to sleep at night from the jealousy.

There were even times when I would pull all-nighters training my magic proficiency.

(Even though it wasn’t that long ago, it feels nostalgic.) (Makoto)

In front of me, there’s the beautiful Princess.

The person that didn’t give me Divine Protection at that time.

That Princess is telling me to become a Hero.

The support being given is thorough. 

Gold, equipment, everything was being given by the country.

I also have reliable comrades.

Even a Goddess that would give me hints when in trouble.

I am way more blessed than the hero of that game.

…This is weird.

Wasn’t an isekai a trash game?

No, wait.

I myself am not strong though?

Don’t misunderstand. 

I am an Apprentice Mage.

The main character of that game had inherited the blood of the hero.

That’s why he was strong enough to defeat the Demon Lord on his own.

I am different.

And what of it?

You can become a hero, you know?

Aren’t you going to regret it if you were to refuse it?

No good. 

My thoughts are not collected.

…At such a time, I…

“Princess Sofia…” (Makoto)

“Y-Yes? What is it?” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia is making a nervous expression.

The first time I met her, I wasn’t good at dealing with her.

But my impression of her has changed a lot.

[Will you become the Water Country’s Hero?]



“I will gratefully accept the title of Hero.” (Makoto)

“…! Is that so. Then, from today on, you are the Hero of Rozes.” (Sofia)

—When you don’t know which choice to make, choose the one that is the most fun.

I have always followed that gameplay rule when deciding.

 “Hero Makoto.” 

After the hero appointment ceremony.

Princess Sofia called me.

…Hero Makoto gives me goosebumps in my whole body when I hear it though.

That way of calling me is a bit embarrassing.

“Yes, Princess Sofia?” (Makoto)

“I have something to speak to you about. Will you come to my room for a bit later?” (Sofia)

“Understood.” (Makoto)

What is it?

Is she going to give me a sermon about how to act as a hero?

That sounds plausible…

 “Makoto, a Hero! That’s amazing!” (Lucy)

“Yeah, but it is more like a hired Hero, you know?” (Makoto)

“It is amazing! This is the best of days!” (Chris)

Lucy and Chris-san were singing praises at me.

It makes me feel just how important a Hero is viewed in this world.

“Hey, Takatsuki-kun, you’ve done it!” (Aya)

My classmate Sa-san is…like that.

It seems like she is celebrating that I have become a Hero like the ones in the games I like.

I prefer this level of celebration.

“Takki-dono…what happened between you and Princess Sofia?” (Fujiwara)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

Fuji-yan says something weird.

“What, you ask?” (Makoto)

“No, it is just that drastic change in Princess Sofia…” (Fujiwara)

What’s the matter?

“Takatsuki-sama, Takatsuki-sama, you have been called by Princess Sofia, right? Make sure not to be rude this time around…” (Nina)

Nina-san with her outrageously good ears advised me while excited.

“This time around? What do you mean by that, Nina?” (Chris)

“Takatsuki-sama had a fight with Princess Sofia when at the Laberintos City.” (Nina)

“Eh?!” (Chris)

Hey hey, Nina-san.

I won’t be saying that again, you know?

I am an adult now.

“Hero-dono! Congratulations for your promotion!” 

A sudden loud voice resonates from our back.

The former guardian knight.

“Old man, you look well. That’s a relief.” (Makoto)

“Yes! Your words are wasted on me.” 

“…Can you stop talking like that?” (Makoto)

I prefer your haughty tone of before.

This is unsettling.

“But the difference in standings has to be shown clearly…” 

The old man is strict in his social hierarchy standards, huh. And he is straightlaced.

There’s a lot of zealous people in Rozes.

I kinda feel bad that I got him out of his position as guardian knight.

I should try asking Princess Sofia to return him to his original position.

“It seems like Makoto-san isn’t good with people that humble themselves to him. Let’s do our best together as Heroes of the Water Country.” (Leonard)

“Prince Leonard.” (Makoto)

I see. We both are now Heroes that protect this country.

I have to do my best.

“I will guide you to Nee-sama’s room, okay?” (Leonard)

“The Prince himself?! I can guide him.” 

A lot of people were beginning to gather around us.

In the end, one of the knights ended up guiding me.


“Excuse the intrusion…” (Makoto)

I was allowed into the room of Princess Sofia.

Me alone.

When I entered, Princess Sofia was waiting there alone.

“Come in, take a seat.” (Sofia)

At the expensive-looking glass table, there are pastries that look like cookies.

At the side of that, there’s a teapot and two teacups.

The Princess pours the tea in a way as if she is not used to this.

…Is this something the Princess herself does?

Isn’t this normally the job of a maid or someone like that?

I sat at a fluffy chair. 

Different from the worn-down bench of the skewer stall, this one is hard for me to calm down.

It can’t even be compared.

A sweet scent like that of muscat wafts around.

“Go ahead.” (Sofia)

“Thank you very much.” (Makoto)

I take a sip of the poured tea. 

…It has a delicate taste to it.

Must be high quality.

It is tasty, but I still can’t tell the difference in the flavours.

“Hero Makoto.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia looks at me with eyes as if piercing me.

“Y-Yes?” (Makoto)

I straighten my back.

“Thank you very much for this instance. Also, forgive me for my remarks at the Water Temple.” (Sofia)

She lowered her head deeply.


“Uhm…Princess Sofia, what you did wasn’t that big of a deal, and I am not bothered by that anymore, so it is okay.” (Makoto)

Having the Princess lower her head so deeply in such a fashion, I felt like I was doing something really bad here.

“You have a big heart.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia raised her head and smiled slightly.

She looks better this way.

“You look better with a smile.” (Makoto)

“Eh?” (Sofia)

Ah, shit.

I said it out loud.

“Ah, no. Sorry about that…” (Makoto)


Aaaah, I feel like I slipped there.

She glared at me again.

I feel like her face is a bit red though…is she that angry?

“By the way, is it okay for someone like me to be a Hero?” (Makoto)

Let’s change the topic.

“You defeated the Taboo Monster and saved the capital. A monster that not even Leo could defeat. Of course you would be a Hero.” (Sofia)

“That was something you and I defeated together though?” (Makoto)

“Together… Right. Could it be that it is too much to bear?” (Sofia)

“No no. I will get stronger so that I don’t lose as a Hero.” (Makoto)

I was taught by Noah-sama about how to use Spirit Magic after all.

Basically, it means that it should be okay if I just obtain enough power to defeat that Giant on my own.

“Well then, I will be counting on you.” (Sofia)

“Yes, count on me.” (Makoto)

Princess Sofia smiles slightly.

Yeah, she is cuter when smiling.

“By the way, Hero Makoto, about my guardian knight…if it is okay with you…can you…” (Sofia)

Ah, right.

I have to tell her this.

“Princess Sofia, can you please return that former guardian knight to his original post? It seems like he had to move because of me.” (Makoto)

“……Understood.” (Sofia)

Hm? She seems somewhat displeased.

Did I say something bad? 

I didn’t, did I?

(Haah~.) (Noah)


“Leo wanted to talk with you. It seems like you have been called to the Sun Country, Highland, but you still have time till your fixed date, right? Please stay here for a while.” (Sofia)

“O-Okay.” (Makoto)

Hm, looks like our conversation is over.

But it was easier than I thought.

Should I do as Noah-sama said and close the distance a bit more? 

We will be working together from now on after all.

I extend my right hand.

“…Uhm, what are you doing?” (Sofia)

“I look forward to working with you from now on.” (Makoto)

Was it rude to ask for a handshake from royalty?

“Likewise.” (Sofia)

After hesitating for a bit, Princess Sofia responded.

Princess Sofia held my hand tightly. 

For some reason…she isn’t letting go.

We held hands for a while looking at each other.

“Well then, thank you very much for the tea.” (Makoto)

“…Yes.” (Sofia)

I let go of the Princess’s hand and left the room.

Hmm, this is complicated.

I should try to consult with Fuji-yan later about how to communicate with girls.

After leaving the room of Princess Sofia, the soldier in front of the door closed the door.


The sound of someone diving onto the bed came from inside the room.


The soldier and I reflexively look at each other.

“Did something happen, Sofia-sama?” 

The soldier calls, and…

“It is nothing.” (Sofia)

The voice of the cold Princess Sofia responded.

We were hearing things, huh.

I gave my greeting to the soldier-san and returned to where my friends are.

    1. “—When you don’t know which choice to make, choose the one that is the most fun.”
      The most ambiguous advice n the most logical one…

  1. Thankz for the translation!!

    Awesome speed and quality as always.

    I do wonder

    Will fuji san tell Makoto what Sofia is thinking?
    Is Sofia’s head filled with only one word, “Makoto” when facing him?
    What is Sofia planning to do with the request abt the guardian knight?
    (did she plan to make some moves to “force” Makoto to agree)

    Hmm, hope there is some pov in next chapter… Hahaha!!!!

    1. Nah, if Fuji-yan was the telling type, he would have beat Makoto over the head and given him the push to the back he needs. No, Fujo-yan will leave the MC in the forever blueballed zone because that is Makoto’s plot setting. The forever dense blueballed hero.

      As if you had any doubt…

    2. “What is Sofia planning to do with the request abt the guardian knight?”
      She was going to ask Makoto to replace him as her guardian knight. To guard her body.
      It’s not like he could since he needs to kill monsters to live, but the old guard knight is a PR nightmare too.

  2. Hmm, with this chapter, I feel like RPG Player’s ability is more than it shows.
    As in, whenever the choices show up, it is as if Makoto changes gears into a more gamer way of thinking.

    Like the time with the goblins and at the ogre, in the beginning, he would begin to consider whether he should be coming out to help when he is so weak, but the moment the choices come out, he would begin to take risks, just like how in a game, you would see it as a scenario progression. A type of perspective change.

    It does match with how he says that he is actually the cautious type and doesn’t like taking risks (self-proclaimed). If what Makoto says is anything to be trusted about, it would make more sense that something is changing that.

    1. Interesting take on the situation and assessment of his inconsistencies.

      It would certainly be interesting if it was the case, however what about when Lucy wanted to join his party, didn’t he initially want to play it safe and refuse her only for it to be forced on him?

      Personally I think it does something subtler, if we recall the prologue when in a desperate situation he just accepted it and showed what could otherwise be called a cavalier attitude. When they were all freezing in the bus he just pulled out his handheld and played his game. I think something similar happens here, he gets pulled out of the situation, pulled out of the immersion as it were, and his own gamer nature takes over.

      Saying that I guess the whole removal of immersion is itself a form of altering his mind to allow his gamer mode to come out.

      Darn but I want to learn more about his RPG gamer skill!

    2. Speaking about the RPG ability, I feel like it might be connected to his inability to raise his stats via level-ups. In some RPGs a player can choose to assign points to the stat they want to raise. This could mean that all of the stat points are hidden behind a menu (that he hasn’t accessed because he keeps on using a tomb which has been shone to be strictly controlled by the Holy gods) that he just doesn’t know how to open, so it could be something more endgame.

      Granted, I could be wrong and he really is just weaker because of how close to death he was. But it is an interesting thought.

      1. Or his status menu (different from the tome/book that he was given) is locked behind a level wall like Sa-san’s ability(extra lives). I’m excited for makoto to reach level 30 at least since he may unlock a new ability with his rpg skill like with satsuki.

    3. I feel it’s more of a psychological thing having things laid out in front of you/ bring up the though process of his rpg(humans being habitual creatures)

    4. Agreed! Additionally, RPG Player to me feels like it, rather than Clear Mind, is really what separates out Makoto’s mentality so he can judge things coolly and respond appropriately to situations, while also having the function of not feeling a deeper sense of connection with the people around him at the same time. He sees everything like he’s in an RPG, so probably has an emotional dissonance as well because of that feeling of not quite being himself, of everything playing out according to the scenario set up; as he keeps mentioning, “forced events”. Because of that separation, the Goddess’ charm, the Taboo Dragon’s and Taboo Giant’s curses and roars also have no effect on him. “Clear Mind” is more like thinking calmly and rationally even in a highly emotionally charged moment, separating his conscious thoughts from his physical body even further so he can process everything with a range of detachment he couldn’t normally.

  3. So it wasn’t a forced event! Interesting, very interesting indeed.

    And choosing the one that is most fun, good gamer logic indeed.

    Those benefits though… where is the bloody trap, there had to be one. The deal is too good. Just do what you were going to do anyway but get everything paid for AND receive a salary on top of it, a huge salary at that! Colour me green and call me envy!

    And now Fuji-yan has discovered that Taki-dono has stirred the heart of Sofia. And what a shock! His jaw was flapping in the wind!

    Sofia’s actions were too cute though. Any idea when Taki-dono will learn of her feelings?

    Interesting tidbit about Eir Kami-sama. It sounds almost like we have a potential divine alliance in the making.

    1. Please don’t coment like this. I read this novel on mobile. And this make my screem become to wide and all word become so small. Your coment out of screen.

  5. Thanks for the chapter. Him being this dense is getting a little annoying, I hope it doesn’t continue for too long.

      1. He has a friend who literally reads minds, so I hope he’ll at least give a little push for Makoto to notice. But in my opinion he’s already too dense, they basically said they like him to his face and he doesn’t notice.

  6. “Fuji-yan being the only one who has his mouth wide open in shock is bothering me a bit though…”
    I really wonder what Sophia was thinking in that moment, maybe some plans to marry makoto or even on how to get kid?

  7. I guess my expectations were met? Makoto-donno disappointed both the princess and us, the readers…

    1. Wouldnt he thinking about her falling for him be more wierd? They almost didnt talk nothing and she suddenly falling for him doesnt make any sense from his pointof view after all it seems she use her skill all the time in front of people.

  8. What fujiyan probably saw:

    Sofia impression of makoto : stranger

    Sofia impression of makoto:I will have his babies

  9. To be fair to Makoto, even if he did realize she wanted him to become her guardian knight, it wouldn’t have taken it.

    It’s just being a glorified bodyguard. He has other stuff to do, right?

      1. I would be happy enough if he just married Lucy, and Sa-san, and left it at that. An actual relationship is worth more then the largest of pseudo harems.

  10. Skill: Absolute Density activated.
    Hero Makoto ignores the Princess’ advances.

    Thanks for the chapter.

  11. This was interesting in so many ways. How can anyone be this dense? Anyways, great job on the chapter and he’s moving up in the world. Just once get an MC that will go get the girl. Thank you,Reigokai.

  12. Thanks for the chapter…. and it happens again, an intelligent MC being dense when it comes to the matter regarding relationship. Idk why almost all japanese authors want to make MC dense…. Is this a trend or something???

    1. In my experience Japanese authors have been doing the whole dense MC thing for a great many years now. I think they do this to put romantic relationships on ice so that they neither parish completely, or grow any deeper. Whatever the reason they do it, I think most readers would agree that it’s really really annoying. After many years of reading, and many dense ass protagonists, I find that the feeling of annoyance only deepens with time.

      1. It’s especially prevalent in harem stories because there’s a vested interest in dragging the story out, letting the waifus be waifus and any conflict inherent to love triangles play out.

        Dense protagonists are usually done poorly, but what really gets to me are the melodrama.

  13. Heh. Okay, I think Sophia’s finally netting a positive impression from me now.

    It’s not too explicit, but you can kinda tell through Takki’s biased filter that she’s become really interested in him, and is actively making moves to build a relationship. Problem is that she’s so awkward and bad at people-ing that she only knows how to act professionally when she wants something personal, not to mention she’s kind of in a really awkward position with him in general.

    I…don’t think they should restore the old guardian knight, as nice and hilarious as it was for Takki to completely miss out on where she was going with it. He’s…kind of bad for PR in a lot of ways, which is a major part of her job.

  14. I feel it’s more of a psychological thing having things laid out in front of you/ bring up the though process of his rpg(humans being habitual creatures) sort of like the difference between multiple choice questions and fill in the answer questions

  15. Looks like Fuji-yan’s Galge Player skill can even get through Sofia’s Cold Heart skill. He’s probably shocked from having to mind read how Sofia must be squeeing so hard over Makoto and how she’s in lurv.

    I’m starting to think that Makoto’s RPG Player skill is subtly influencing him. As Makoto pointed out previously, he’d only get prompts when a decision would cause major changes to the “plot” like when Lucy asked him to form a party with her or now this time where he had to decide if he would accept the title of hero or not. Also now that I think about it, when the prompts show up, the arrow seems to always be on what would be the “best” or “correct” choice. Like here where it prompted him if he wanted to be a hero or not, the arrow was on “yes” but when he got the prompt to synchronize with Nina, the arrow was on “no”.

    So the Water Goddess isn’t too bad and can be reasoned with. I feel like Noah is the Moon Goddess and because of the Moon’s relation to tides and water maybe that’s why Noah can negotiate with Eir.

    Hah~ Makoto is as dense as a black hole it seems. Even Noah is sighing in exasperation. It looks like Sofia was going to suggest that Makoto be her new Guardian Knight so she can have more opportunities to be with him. Too bad that Makoto asked her to rehire the previous Guardian Knight even though that guy is basically a walking PR disaster and also Noah had told Makoto to get close to Sofia and this would have been the perfect opportunity.

  16. “That was something you and I defeated together though?” (Makoto)
    “Together… Right. Could it be that it is too much to bear?” (Sofia)
    “No no. I will get stronger so that I don’t lose as a Hero.” (Makoto)

    OK is starting to sound wierd how he still doesnt think about make a contract with a spirit so he can have him help when run out of mana. If he played games it should be the normal answer to think about become a elemental summoner. In his case it should be undine and maybe if he gets another blessings he can make pacts with Gnome Salamander and Silph after.

  17. Thanks for the chapter! ^^
    The situation is great for Makoto but please Fuji-yan!!! Open his eyes!!!
    Wonder if the water kingdom will become the ennemy of all with Makoto because of this alliance?

  18. Hmmmm. I think requesting the Knight to reinstate again as the Guard for Princess Sofia is ok for now even though its apparently didnt like it by Princess Sofia.

    Makoto as an adventurer should practice freedom more. Guarding the Princess this time while enjoying the perks of being an adventurer will leave Makoto’s fulfillment meter half empty and he will not be happy.

    For now, let Makoto enjoy being an adventure, complete all his desires and promised missions, and then if he was Matured enough and his perspective change, then guarding the Princess as the Hero will be sufficed.

      1. Dude, that’s a really horrible Indonesian. I can’t make any sense out of it. It seems that you used google translate… Lagian, buat apa komen pake bahasa Indonesia? Tuh orang jelas-jelas pake bahasa Inggris…

  19. As i predicted, Makoto will become a heroes huh…Not saying that it’s bad but it’s a bit predictable, (seriously, i figured this out since they were fighting in Laberintos). I know that previously i said that a the most likely outcome of this is an infighting between the old gen faction and the new gen faction, but just for fun,i will no try to predict how the story will progress , this is NOT a spoiler, this is merely a rambling of a 17 year old who got too much time on his hand.

    1) Makoto got called to Highland, meet Sakurai and his harem
    2) The sage girl (forgot her names) will challenge Makoto to a duel
    3) Makoto will most likely lost purposely
    4) Water country will belittle makoto for losing to someone who is not even the highland country hero
    5) a sort of factions are created between the one who belittle Makoto and the one who support Makoto

    up to this point, i’m fairly certain that these events will happen based on how the story has come , but here, i got stuck in 2 possibility.

    a) Makoto doesn’t accept being belittled, and so, discarded his hero title and leave water country, 80% will go to fire country

    b) Makoto challenge another country hero to shut up the opposition, 65% of it being Sakurai and 35% of it being the fire country

    This two events is the key for this Arc, this two events will determine how makoto will be presented when he met the fire country hero (which i’m guessing will be the next hero to show up).

    IF a happen, i calculated that, there’s a 75% these will happen

    1. Makoto goes to Water country after leaving Water country and being betrayed for the second times
    2. Makoto enter the Fire country tournament do determine their heroes
    3. Makoto will most likely meet Fire country hero in the final and defeat him
    4. Makoto is, once again, offered the hero but this time refused,
    5. Sofia will most likely present at the tournament and apologize to Makoto, and ask him to go to water country once mroe
    6. Makoto spite Sofia once more

    IF this happen i could see the following lines to happen
    “And what Princess Sofia? So that i could be betrayed by your country once again?”
    This line will be the nail to the coffin to Water country prestige and reputation as a country that abandon a hero themself choose

    IF b happen, i calculated there’s 2 possibility, the vs Sakurai and vs fire country hero one

    First is vs Sakurai
    1. Makoto Return to highland, this time, he ask for permission to use his full power, and challenge Sakurai
    2. The nobles on the land laugh and belittle him, but accept nonetheless
    3. Makoto will most likely go all out for once without care, since, we do know that the ice phonix is a result of Sakurai being mindful for his surrounding, and the Yamata no Orochi is a result of him wanting to throw the dragon
    4. I think that, most likely, Makoto will use a monarch level spell to call a Dragon
    5. Makoto defeat Sakurai, but people realize that he was using a spirit magic, an ancient magic,
    6. The princess of Highland country offer Makoto to stay with Highland Country, promising the same things and even a post with the magic knight,
    IF this happen the most likely iconic line that will happens are
    “I’m sorry princess, but i am already promised Princess Sofia to protect her country”
    This will be make Princess sofia fall for Makoto completely.

    THat’s all folk, a rambling of 17 year old, this might be just all false, or it might be true, i don’t know, i’m using this story to test how accurate my calculation are.

    1. Well I don’t really like your rambling and I hope it won’t come true and also I hope this isn’t spoiler from following chapters .
      I mean, really

  20. To think that I was cursing her a couple of chapters back, I feel shamed.
    Sofia is a great lovable character .

  21. Makoto should turn off his skills sometimes, then maybe he’d react to the obvious affections of the girls.
    Oh well, they’ll have to seduce him while he’s drunk.

  22. Fuji-yan’s shock was palpable.😖 I wonder if the princess was praying to her Goddess for Makoto to accept.
    Just thinking of the princess jumping on her bed after Makoto left the room is adorable, that Cold Heart skill is to blame for everything that went wrong.
    I think that Makoto always keeps up Clear Mind for the mental resistance on one side and just grinding for the other.

  23. the goddess asked Makoto to take responsibility because her sacred daughter had been spotted ~, fiance of course ~

  24. Just heads up to any mods that check the comments, this chapter still doesn’t have a next chapter link. Spent this whole time thinking that you guys had either dropped the series or been on a long break. Only realized there were more chapters when I saw them on novel updates, looking for something new to read.

  25. Thanks for the chapter !!!
    Damn Sofia advance very quickly (and as always Makoto still Makoto IYKWIM) but nevertheless still waiting for what will coming

  26. Good job sir knight, you are now promoted again into sir Shit-no-more. Keep it up.

    And suddenly, invited to a room? If this were an eroge there’d even be music to set the mood, and what happens after is something that gets added to the gallery for replaying. But the Eroge Event Attack can’t get past his Defense Dense as Lead…, damn it, been in an Exalted mood lately.

    The princess probably vented on a poor pillow soon after.

  27. I remember the time when i was playing witcher 3 and there was a choice where if i would play snow ball with ciri or not.
    I chose to play with her because it should be fun and it led me to good ending.

  28. His thinking is rational for dense MC. But i like his way of thinking at least we have good grinding not just collecting girl
