TLN: There was a mistake in the previous chapter. Makoto didn’t actually mention the Goddess explicitly. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
Princess Noel was looking at me with slightly cold eyes.
“Hero Makoto-sama, are you imitating the Savior-sama’s legend there?” (Noel)
She suddenly said something weird.
“Legend of the Savior-sama?” (Makoto)
“…You don’t know about it? It is a famous story though.” (Noel)
Princess Noel told me.
The Savior Abel who defeated the Great Demon Lord and brought peace to the world 1,000 years ago.
This legendary hero, Abel, gathered the surviving humans and founded the Sun Country of Highland.
That would be the year 0 of the Salvation Era.
The people of Highland wanted Abel to become their King.
But Savior Abel said ‘there’s someone waiting for me’ and left.
No one had seen him after that.
That’s the legend.
“…I didn’t know.” (Makoto)
Aah, is it that.
She thought that I was trying to act cool by imitating that.
That does sound cringy.
I can understand why Noel-sama would look at me coldly from that.
“So you really didn’t know.” (Noel)
Her cold expression returned to her normal one.
“Makoto-sama, I hate this story! If you were copying it, I thought I should get angry.” (Noel)
She placed her hands on her waist and puffed up her cheeks.
Her expressions really are bountiful.
“Why do you hate it?” (Makoto)
“Cause you know…” (Noel)
Noel-sama directs eyes as if sulking.
“Savior Abel-sama had a splendid girlfriend like the Holy Maiden Anna-sama, you know? And yet, he said ‘I have someone waiting for me’. That’s hurtful for the other girls, don’t you think?!” (Noel)
She does have a point.
So Savior-sama had some other girl, huh.
“In history books, it is stated that Savior Abel-sama had an elderly mother, and passed his remaining years of life in a modest manner.” (Noel)
“Hoh, is that so.” (Makoto)
“Is the kind of postscript that was created.” (Noel)
It is made-up?
“What happened to the Savior-sama is completely unknown after all. So they had to create a plausible conclusion. The first ruler, Anna-sama, having her lover be taken by another woman is absolutely unacceptable!” (Noel)
“Sounds troublesome…” (Makoto)
This country of Highland has been having troubles since its founding, huh.
“Doesn’t the Great Sage-sama know in more detail?” (Makoto)
She was part of their party after all.
“The Great Sage-sama said she also doesn’t know what happened after the Savior-sama disappeared…” (Noel)
“I see…” (Makoto)
I feel like she definitely knows though.
Did something happen?
“That’s why the lineage of Ryosuke-sama who has the same Light Hero Skill as the Savior-sama is absolutely necessary in the Highland royalty. Skills appear more often when they are from the same lineage after all.” (Noel)
“An owner of the Light Hero Skill hasn’t appeared for 1,000 years after all.” (Makoto)
“Yeah…a serious wound in the royalty of Highland.” (Noel)
“So it was only after 1,000 years that an otherworlder like Sakurai-kun appeared…” (Makoto)
At any rate, Skills are decided from their lineage?
No wonder royalty like Princess Sofia and Prince Leonard have powerful Skills.
Thanks to that, Sakurai-kun has 20 wives.
It…could be considered a harem.
Oh, his dance partner changed again.
What number is she, I wonder.
(But the next to the throne is Princess Noel, so…the next in line would be the child of Princess Noel, right?) (Makoto)
I ended up looking at Princess Noel at my side.
Could it be that Sakurai-kun has also…with this neat and clean Princess Noel…?
He really is blessed.
She must have noticed my gaze, she looked at my face and made a teasing expression.
“Oh my? Makoto-sama, could it be that you were thinking about why I am not having a child?” (Noel)
“?! N-No no. In no way did I…” (Makoto)
Did she notice that I am thinking something stupid?!
Princess Noel made a suggestive face as she looked at me.
“The Oracles of the Goddesses have to stay pure. I cannot have a child yet.” (Noel)
What does she mean by that?
She saw my questioning look, and she slid closer to me.
“Oracles have to stay as virgins. That’s why I don’t have experience.” (Noel)
She whispered in my ear.
“?! N-Noel-sama?” (Makoto)
My temperature rose at those words and her breath in my ears.
M-My face is burning!
Isn’t this person way too straight?!
“Oh my, that was improper of me. Pardon me.” (Noel)
Princess Noel giggles.
Princess, you are way too mischievous!
But, I see.
He has a whole lot of wives, but his most beautiful one that is Princess Noel is not on the table yet, huh.
That’s a shame.
(You really do have to get the Princess after you defeat the Demon Lord and save the world, Sakurai-kun.) (Makoto)
My friendship points towards him increased.
(That’s just how it works for you, Makoto.) (Noah)
Isn’t that okay, Noah-sama?
That’s favorable in my eyes.
“You look like you are having fun, Hero Makoto, Noel-sama.”
A cold voice.
Even the temperature around decreased.
“P-Princess Sofia?” (Makoto)
“O-Oh my, Sofia-sama.” (Noel)
Princess Noel and I take distance from each other instantly.
“Since when did you get so close?” (Sofia)
Princess Sofia was giving me eyes as cold as that time when she discovered that Lucy stayed in my room for a night.
“I just didn’t have anyone to talk to, so she came to keep me company. Thanks, Noel-sama.” (Makoto)
“It is the duty of an organizer to entertain their guests. I will be taking my leave now, Makoto-sama.” (Noel)
I thank Princess Noel and Princess Noel left immediately.
“…If you had come to me, I would have been your conversation partner.” (Sofia)
Princess Sofia muttered, but…I can’t go to the royalty area, you know?
After that, I spoke to Princess Sofia and Prince Leonard, the Templars that Sa-san had gotten along with, and the noble ladies that Lucy ended up getting along with.
In the second half, it had turned into quite the lively party.
At the end, I was made to do a speech as a new-coming Hero.
I didn’t hear about this, Noel-sama!
I was biting my nails there.
Don’t make me do something so crazy all of a sudden…
Highland really does put me on edge.
I was in the space of the Goddess.
“Hello~, Makoto.” (Noah)
The one who appeared was Noah-sama in a party dress?
Did you feel like wearing that after seeing the party just now?
It does suit her though.
“What’s with that outfit?” (Makoto)
“Fufufu, cute, right?” (Noah)
Hey! If you move so much, I will end up seeing inside your skirt…
I-I can’t see!
The absolute territory of the Goddess is still alive, huh.
“You seem to be in a good mood.” (Makoto)
“Makoto, you are indoctrinating the Oracle and the Heroes reasonably.” (Noah)
She really does use bad sounding words as always.
We are getting along well.
“Are you talking about Sakurai-kun and Princess Noel?” (Makoto)
“Yeah. Their affection points are high, you know? Keep it that way, my cute Makoto.” (Noah)
“Eeh~? The Sun Country is tiring, so I want to go back already though.” (Makoto)
The incredibly stiff hierarchical system.
The hot-blooded Hero.
The nobles that hate me unreasonably and speak behind my back as if amusing.
On top of that, the rebellion from the demi-humans.
Way too much trouble.
Now that I think about it, did Fuji-yan get some information?
In the end, I didn’t meet him today.
“It looks like he found a number of the leaders within the demi-human rebellion plan.” (Noah)
It hasn’t even been 24 hours though!
Is he from the FBI?
Is he Jack Bauer? <Protagonist of the series 24. Worked with the FBI to prevent major terrorist attacks.>
Or more like, Noah-sama…
“Please don’t give me spoilers.” (Makoto)
“I am a Goddess. My job is to guide my Apostle. Makoto, are you thinking of me as a walkthrough Wiki or something?” (Noah)
She made a discontent expression.
“T-That’s not true.” (Makoto)
I actually did.
“Anyways, what’s the matter?” (Makoto)
If Noah-sama has shown up, it must be an Event, right?
“Can you please stop treating Me Showing = Beginning of an Event?!” (Noah)
But it is mostly like that, right?
“Geez, the gamer brain of the RPG Game Player Skill users is just…” (Noah)
Noah-sama mutters her complaints.
“So, we are going to be talking about our objectives from here on, right?” (Makoto)
“Yeah yeah! Let’s hear your opinions, Makoto.” (Noah)
She snaps her fingers and a whiteboard appears in midair.
It feels like school.
“So I really do have to stop the rebellion?” (Makoto)
The Great Demon Lord’s revival is close, so this is no time to be fighting amongst yourselves, right?
The person that took care of Nina-san before seems to be participating in this rebellion too.
“Right, it is also a problem of how you stop it. A method that leaves grudges between the humans and demi-humans will become disadvantageous when in the war against the Great Demon Lord army.” (Noah)
She writes it on the whiteboard.
She went out of her way to write it in japanese.
“Now then, the problem comes here. Why do you think the rebellion happened at this timing?” (Noah)
“Because the discontent towards the hierarchical system accumulated and…” (Makoto)
No, is it really that?
The districts that humans and demi-humans live in are divided clearly.
It feels like it would be hard for trouble to occur, and the young nobles in today’s party were amiable towards a female elf like Lucy.
It seems like they are trying to learn since Princess Noel is against this system.
Princess Noel doesn’t give me the vibes that she would discriminate because of race.
“It is not simply because of their dissatisfaction towards the system…?” (Makoto)
“Probably. Have any ideas in mind?” (Noah)
Noah-sama taps the whiteboard with her black marker.
The rebellion planned in Symphonia.
The ones benefiting from this are…
“The devilkin… The Snake Church?” (Makoto)
“I think it is worth investigating.” (Noah)
The Goddess winks at me.
I look at her with apathetic eyes.
“You know everything, don’t you, Goddess-sama? If a rebellion like this happens, the amount of casualties will increase, so please tell me everything.” (Makoto)
“W-What, don’t make that face.” (Noah)
Noah-sama takes a step back as if flustered.
“There’s a lot of fanatics of the Demon God King in the Snake Church, so I can’t read their movements as I am an unrelated God! I think that’s the same for the Holy God believers.” (Noah)
“Then that means the Goddesses can’t tell Princess Noel and Princess Sofia about this?” (Makoto)
When their religious faith is strong, the other Gods can’t see them.
“Noel-chan doesn’t only have the power of a Goddess Oracle, but has the authority to move the Templars, and due to her standing as royalty, she should have the most information.” (Noah)
“I see, I should have asked her at the party.” (Makoto)
“…Talking about the Snake Church and the rebellion of the demi-humans would be lacking in tact by quite a lot though.” (Noah)
She was looking at me as if I were a pitiful child.
What, it is better to get information in an efficient manner, right?
Now that I think about it, the Old Man Giant once told me this.
“Is it an option to have the comrade of Noah-sama, the God Giant Old Man, help us?” (Makoto)
“Aah, Jii <old man>. Yeah, it would be difficult. The Titans have high battle power, but they are not good when it comes to minute work. In the first place, Gods are prohibited from getting involved directly with the mortal plane.” (Noah)
“Is that so.” (Makoto)
From what I heard, Gods can provide items and Divine Protection, but are prohibited from directly getting involved with the battles in the mortal plane.
“If the Holy Gods, Devils, and Titan Gods were to fight directly, the mortal plane would end up being a complete mess after all. In the Divine Realm War, Titanomachia, and the God Giants War, Gigantomachia, the mortal plane got destroyed once after all.” (Noah)
“…That’s no good then.” (Makoto)
It would create an even bigger war if he helps out.
“When you want to ask for Jii’s help, it would be at the time when you want to give someone Divine Protection, or when you want a powerful earth element item.” (Noah)
The Titans apparently have the power of the Earth Spirits.
Right now I have no need for that…
Sa-san doesn’t have any compatibility with magic.
Lucy has already received an enhancement in her items.
This method will have to be postponed.
“Ah, right right. There’s 1 thing I have to warn you about.” (Noah)
“What is it?” (Makoto)
“I don’t get along with the Sun Goddess, Althena.” (Noah)
“That girl is a straightlaced Goddess with a really hard head who doesn’t listen after all. So I won’t be able to negotiate in the back like the time with the Water Country. Be careful.” (Noah)
In Rozes I didn’t need to convert even though I became a Hero.
Because Noah-sama had a talk with the Water Goddess, Eir-sama.
Looks like that’s complicated in Highland.
“From within the six Goddesses, the Sun Goddess religion has the most amount of hard-headed people, so be careful.” (Noah)
When I look at the Sun Oracle, Princess Noel, I can’t imagine that though.
It looks like because of how diligent the believers of the Sun Goddess religion are, it would be troublesome if they were to have their eyes on me.
I should try to be careful not to cause troubles…
I am from a minor religion (only one) after all.
“Now then, one last thing.” (Noah)
As if saying this is the main topic, she wrote 9th District.
“Go check out the 9th District, the Slum District.” (Noah)
“The Slum District?” (Makoto)
The 9th District is the slums?
This is a must explore area in RPGs!
“There’s no treasure chests, okay? But there might be hidden passages.” (Noah)
As expected of Noah-sama.
She gets me.
“But why investigate the slums?” (Makoto)
“The devilkins live in the 9th District.” (Noah)
“?! The devilkin are in the capital?” (Makoto)
“If it is just living there, it is possible. It is the District where criminals and the mafia live in, so it wouldn’t be pleasant though. But there’s no other place where they can live in. They really are doing something stupid.” (Noah)
Noah-sama says unamused.
I see…the deepest area of Symphonia.
If it is the city where devilkins live, we might be able to learn something about the Snake Church.
“Understood. I will head to the 9th District as Noah-sama advises.” (Makoto)
“Makoto, there’s dangerous places as well, so be careful.” (Noah)
After saying this, Noah-sama disappears.
But it smells like an adventure.
The next place to go has been decided.

So Noel was pissed because he talked like a playboy who dumped his women for the other lol
But is it just me or she doesn’t seem to have much affection toward Sakurai? I guess it just political marriage then.
Also what with her teasing him telling she’s a virgin and all that~
She definitely seems pissed at Abel for not sticking around. The positive light is that she doesn’t like the whole dumping one woman for another, the less positive light is that maybe she is pissed that he didn’t pass on the Light Hero title/skill.
Yeah her attitude toward Sakurai is seriously strange to me. It really does feel like she doesn’t care for him. But she also seems to have acted to “Mark herself as his number one”. It seems very political to me all round.
That whole teasing and almost flirting with Takki-dono does seem to me to try to draw him to her side/to convert to Highland.
“The hero abel” looks a lot like makoto who knows what happened a thousand years ago
Ty for the chap!
Maybe princess noel and makoto gonna get along ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) maybe , nobody know
Indeed at this point in time no one knows, unless they have read ahead.
Takki-dono definitely seems amicable to that but he is amicable to helping out and being friendly to everyone who is open and friendly to him.
Nope? Nope to what? Nope to him being friendly to others if they are friendly to him?
wait already a nope ? wtf why so fast , so i guess the makato X noel will never happen huh
I am ahead but I don’t want to spoil the surprise so I am just going to wait until everything is translated.
Thank you! So a surprise to look forward to
dang, i can totally see them being together. that moment she mentioned Sakurai never touched her yet, i was like, ” Hmm.. hmm? hm!? umu.. umumu,, she’s totally open ain’t she, long live makotoXnoel”. Her being a virgin + aloof attitude as if she doesn’t really care about Sakurai (and maybe her arranged marriage in general, like she’s prolly taking it as something she ought to do rather than want to), It’s totally possible for her to jump ships and climb aboard the Makoto harem Airship~ All it needs is some development (like *cough synchro *cough ಡ ͜ ʖ ಡ)
Thanks for the chapter!!😉
She’s the most active Goddess I know.
Thanks for the chapter!
“She said it’s dangerous….BUT I SMELL ADVENTURE!”
Seriously, this Makoto is a handful XD
You say that like Waka-sama isn’t a handful. Wake-sama has super bad luck remember. AND he behave how others expect or anticipate him to behave at all.
Thanks for the new chapter!
Well an interesting note about Abel there… just who was he going to go back to. Could it be that he was actually friends with the former apostles of Noah and his dying wish was for Abel to release Noah? Or maybe he was going to go and defeat Noah… EX-Loli is hiding too many things. Takki-dono offer to treat her to a meal to find out.
Sakurai has it tough there. I certainly don’t envy him. I wonder just how he feels about the whole thing. And just how does Noel feel? Is she really sacrificing things or does she hold the whole being an Apostle above all else?
Speaking of Noel I am getting mixed signals. How she has behaved up to this point just does not seem to me as very trustworthy, constantly trying to acquire more military power at the cost of international relations, poaching other forces and how she even approached Takki-dono before and now. People that are trying to collect power typically have a very strong reason for it. Sofia is trying to give her country, which is very weak, a better foothold and increase her people’s survivability. What then is Noel’s reasoning? Why steal forces from another country you are supposedly allied with in the lead up to a war? On the other hand the more we see her interacting the more jovial and bubbly she seems, able to tease and joke.
Oh well, I guess we shall find out eventually. Maybe I am just being overtly cautious and suspicious. I mean it would be borderline paranoia to think that she is trying to drive a wedge between Takki-dono and Sofia-hime in order to try to pull Takki-dono to her/her-country’s side given how Sofia-hime found them and instantly evade jealous. Yeah major paranoia. I mean surely not all powerful people in precarious positions of socio-political power are potential villains. Right?
Noah-kamisama! No kiss?! I am shocked and surprised! I was getting used to you shaking Takki-dono. Although I guess the skirt twirling and absolute area a normally super effective attack.
So both Makoto’s are now going to be in the slums…. odd coincidence.
Speaking of the slums and the potential devil kin stirrings does anyone else think there should be a showdown between the goddesses and the devil gods?
I doubt it was for Noah, since he would have needed to kill her Apostle on the way to the Demon King, but when I was reading that part, my immediate reaction was that maybe the new Demon King is one of Abel’s descendants. Maybe he left to romance a Demon, or specifically the Demon King, could just be the stereotypical rescue the DK’s child route….
Interesting point there, but if killing the apostle to reach the Demon King would make it unlikely he would try to rescue Noah, all the lives the demons had taken and the actions they performed on humans would have made him less inclined to romance the DK wouldn’t it?
Still happens in more stories than I can count though.
Pretty sure any treasure chests would’ve already been looted by the inhabitants of the district.
I feel like he only really cares about treasure chests and secret passages. No actual room for romance anywhere.
The ironic thing is that he never actually went to search treasures in dungeons or anything like that…
False alarm everyone about the assumption of Noel-sama having a dirty plan to tie Makoto to the Sun Country
Or at least that’s what i hope. After reading the part where Noah-sama said that the Sun Goddess is the most stubborn one, my relief almost gone like it never come to me Lol. And awww Noah-sama didn’t give Makoto a kiss in the cheek this time, so unfortunate. Anyway,
And Makoto going to devilkin district, i wish he would meet a friendly devilkin that would cooperate with him. I think it would be interesting, even more if that devilkin joins his harem xD. Anyway,
Thanks for the chapter, as always!
Thanks for the update
Is the hero story foreshadowing something? I believe this will be important later on and Noah-wiki really handy
Definitely looks like it.
After reading the raw and come back to this chapter, I must say the author left a secret hint for what next to come
Thanks for the chapter~ I’m too sleepy today so i wont write much but damn my mind working over time~ What are the chances of Abel also being a follower of a evil god or maybe even being charmed by the great demon lord of that generation? Maybe the dude is still alive right now and Makotos job is to scour the land and piece together the hidden history of the world only to find out the saviour is still alive and the current blessed of the snake god? Probably not true but a boy can dream, also glad to see sakurai is quite high in the affection scale, wouldnt be surprised if he was the one with the most hearts already~
have you read I Reincarnated For Nothing recently?
Dropped that series around the time the mc summoned the dragon because i found it too boring
Hmmmm…. The author watch 24, aye?? I also watch them together with CSI and NCIS… Oh well, thanks for the chapter….
This story would gain a lot with more gray, whiteXdark all the time is really boring. In this arc, as an example, if he got the right to choose which side he was going to help it would be a lot more interesting, instead of always having to help royalties cause yes. Honestly this novel is just too childish for me and I probably only keep reading cause Reigokai translates incredibly well and I get bored a lot.
Pretty sure abel disappearance have something to do with underwater dungeon,Sofia best gurl.
You dare post 88 in these times?! Kneel!
Thnx for the chapter!
Thanks for the chapter
Thanks for the chapter…
Thanks for the chapter as always~!
so Takki-dono is sharing similar goals to Abel,thats interesting.
on another note it seems like our dear MC will get involved with shaddy people, looking forwar to how it develops.
oh and thanks for the chapther
Fun! Looking forward to this arc 🙂
Thanks for the chapter <3
i guess Abel got de-isekai’d
That makes me think of Kouki from Arifureta. He keeps getting isekai’d to another world to save it. What if Abel was like that?
Thanks for the chapter.
What kind of adventure doesn’t involve some risks?
Thank you for this chapter!
Does that mean that Hero Abel is also trying to meet a goddess? Is it Noah? or other kind of goddess?
Makoto: “He has a whole lot of wives, but his most beautiful one that is Princess Noel is not on the table yet, huh. ”
I understand what he means on this, but i can’t contained what my other interpretation is. It seems Makoto wants to do it the table.. Hahaha
Thanks as always for the chapter
Thanks for the chapter.
Gamer will be gamer lol
Thanks for the chapter
Thanks for the chapter! ^^
I vote for Abel coming back to his world!
I vote for Makoto demi-human’s leader to screw over the Snake church AND the Sun church! XD
And take over the mafia with Fuji-yan help too Makoto! x)
For the truth shall be unveiled
The truth about the princess betrothal
and the truth of her attitude
Uhhh you got me curious there, can you tell me the chapter?
It should be right at end of this arc.
It is as that man before me answer,right at the end of this arc,just wait for at least a month,and the truth you seek will be unveiled
Yes, Noel is too suspicious.
So Noel was angry because she initially thought Makoto was trying to act cool by saying a line that Abel said. Anyways she sounds a bit like a girly girl who wants the ideal fairy tale romance since she didn’t like how Abel up and left Anna who was apparently his girlfriend because “there is somebody waiting for me” so Anna didn’t get her happy fairy tale end and the kingdom had to make up a lie that Abel spent the rest of his life taking care of his elderly mother while Noel thinks Abel left Anna for another girl. Meanwhile it doesn’t seem like Noel has any feelings for Sakurai because it is clearly a political marriage where Sakurai already has 20 lovers and 5 kids. There’s no ideal shoujo romance in any of that that Noel would like. Though I’m not sure why exactly is Noel acting so close and flirty with Makoto and telling him she’s a virgin. Does Makoto look or act like Abel and she thinks she could finally get the ideal happy fairy tale ending for Anna because she’s supposed to be the reincarnation of Anna? Well regardless of the reason, it sounds like she’ll join Makoto’s harem. I think Sakurai would actually appreciate that because he’d think Makoto is trying to ease his burdens like a good friend by taking at least one of his harem members.
Noah is meanwhile encouraging Makoto to raise his affection points with Noel and Sofia. At the same time she’s still flirting with Makoto what with her outfit and her unseeable absolute territory. Unfortunately no kiss this time. Anyways she really understands Makoto well. She knows that he thinks that whenever she arrives it means an event is gonna happen and that while there won’t be any treasure chests in the unexplored slums district, there might be hidden passages that a gamer would love to find. Anyways I am kinda annoyed that Noah would prefer that when Makoto stops the rebellion, that he does it in a way that keeps the status quo. All it’d do is just delay the inevitable which would possibly be really bad if another rebellion breaks out during the war against the demon king. Then there is the fact that the Sun Country how it is currently would probably not work well with anybody else because of their elitism and racism. It would be better if this rebellion does change how the Sun Country acts and makes them adopt Noel’s new policies.
Well,it is a same person who said that line you know.
Hehe just kidding
Oh. She wasn’t angry at him or doing a political thing. She was just cringing. XD
Ironically not to Takki being an RPG dork. She was being strangely flirtatious with him, it seems. Or maybe he’s just a breath of fresh air in this country?
Hmm. I wonder what happened to the Hero Abel? Did he return to his own world where he had a girl he was interested in? Or maybe he also secretly followed an Evil God?
As expected, it’s the Snake church doing a Rona again. Well, we’ll deal with it one way or another. Rather, I’m far more concerned about that Sun Goddess, who sounds like she’s gonna be a pain in the ass even if she’s not necessarily a bad person.
Thank you for the chapter!
While everyone else writes a deep analysis of Noel’s possible character (I don’t trust her either), I think it’s kinda funny how Sofia reacts to Makoto interacting with her. She has some bad memories from the last time Noel got her hands on a hero.
Foreshadowing at its finest
“But Savior Abel said ‘there’s someone waiting for me’ and left.
No one had seen him after that.
That’s the legend.”
OMG Abel failed and died then isnt ? He died by the hand of the Apostle right? I mean Noah told before that the demon side asked to kill the heros and she told to Makoto that
“The Devil bunch said that if I side with the Demon Lord and kill the heroes, they would save the Titans.” (Noah)
“The Devils, the Gods that created the demons and monsters. They were also battling the Holy Gods. But, in the end, they didn’t keep their promise though…” (Noah)
If in the end the Devils didnt keep their promise that means that Noah s apostle did kill the heros, maybe he took the place of Abel by order of Noah got the support from Anna the Sage and the others and slayed the demon god, That will explain why the sage didnt told anything and why Anna was told
But Savior Abel said ‘there’s someone waiting for me’ and left.
No one had seen him after that.
He was talking about Noah and maybe died in the deep sea temple afterwards. The sage probably found out the truth with her skill that will explain why she didnt reject Makoto even tough he is an apostle of Noah.
And that overeaction of Noel is to suspicious and sounds like she saw that hapening, maybe she is reincarnation from Anna?
Thanks for the chapter!!!!!!!!
Thanks for the chapter!!!
“Could it be that Sakurai-kun has also…with this neat and clean Princess Noel…?
He really is blessed.
Right back at you buddy
Well, Makoto’s going to the slums then. That disguise skill looks mighty handy.
Also, the resemblance of Makoto’s resolve and the Savior’s last deeds are too much to be unimportant. Plot point found.
Re-reading : isn’t it suspicious that the first king (or maybe the first prince-consort) is never specifically named? Seriously he might not be Abel, but you’d think he’s important enough to at least have his name mentioned.
Also this : “Geez, the gamer brain of the RPG Game Player Skill users is just…” (Noah)
Note the plural, assuming this isn’t Reigokai’s TL goof, the implications oh my. Another otherworlder from even before 1000 years ago? Was Makoto actually a reincarnated and twice-otherworlder?
I still think Noel is bad news, even more after what Noah say, she simply seems to much like the schemming double-faced characters.
Oi this guy is a gamer thorough and thorough
today’s Noah costume
also, the plot thickens
I really wish they would use more… Mature artstyle… In the first place, her head is gigantic
The Japanese actually developed that big headed and big eyed ANIME/MANGA style just before WW2 if I recall correctly and it was based on copying American Disney style characters and the likes of Max Fleischer’s ‘Betty Boop’ cartoon character.
It became super popular because you can show more emotions with less lines drawn and apparently we are psychologically programmed to be attracted to big round eyes (like on babies and kittens) so it bypasses or critical thinking center.
I kinda know what you mean though, because when I first saw manga I wasn’t keen on the artwork myself…and then it got under my skin somehow and now I can’t get enough of it while finding myself critical of western comic art?
Although western comics and cartoons have really gone to hell these last few years…
I love some manga artwork, I think it looks great, just not these ones so much… Took me a while to get used to those big eyes though, now I am like you almost. I have not been reading or watching any westen comics for over 10 years I think, but I will take your word for it 🙂
Thank you once again
I wanted to retort, but I held back…. >_<
I feel bad for Ryosuke here
wait isnt noel the first saint in 1000 years?
“He has a whole lot of wives, but his most beautiful one that is Princess Noel is not on the table yet, huh.
That’s a shame.” – It’s lines like these that make me think Makoto is still seeing everything as a ‘game’ and is treating real people as acquisitions? In the same vain as he was almost going to go smashing vases and robbing chests earlier… It’s like he has some kind of disconnect where he just see’s it as other people’s problems?
He was like this in the beginning on the bus, even as they were all dying.
Methinks his ‘Clear Mind’ skill is some kind of trauma defence mechanism from his previous life?
I can see him losing his mind if someone he does love gets killed…
Too bad he have to actually use it when around women. He will never mature if he continues to use it around people
Very true! That’s exactly the problem with these kinds of defence mechanisms and I think maybe that’s what the author is setting him (Makoto) up for…? Although I might be reading the tea leaves wrong there? ; )
Considering how this Noel speaks to Makoto, she should be into cheating/ntr for sure.
“The devilkins live in the 9th District.” (Noah)
“?! The devilkin are in the capital?” (Makoto)
You don’t say….
