Tsuki – Chapter 315: The Demonic Mountain and the Hot Spring Resort once again

*Kapon~*

This place where it feels as if you could hear sounds from who knows where is deep in the mountains of Kaleneon.

Tomoe had constructed and finished a hot spring resort within Kaleneon in the snow storms of midwinter.

It is the first resort project of the Kuzunoha Company.

There’s practically no signs of a plan for a second one though.

“You know, Lime, when a lot of unexpected things accumulate, there’s times when you blow a fuse. I understand. I really understand that feeling. I have so much to say about that, you know.” (Makoto)

“Yeah.” (Lime)

“Different from Shiki, you can sympathize to a certain degree, Lime. In a sense, you are one of the few scarce male employees, so with that in account, I am pretty grateful you are here, you know? But I would like you to avoid the visible dangers. Like, you just have to be a bit careful… Please…” (Makoto)

“…I am really sorry!!” (Lime)

Lime lowers his head vigorously within the steam.

There was a lot of strength in that bow, his head sinks into the warm water. 

His trained body had a number of old wounds. 

There’s a number that are on their way to healing, but there’s mostly scars.

There’s no wounds made today.

He miraculously was spared with no wounds.

Lime suddenly began to look for us in the Dusk Street.

He wasn’t even thinking about being stealthy, it was such a straightforward entrance that it was as if he was shouting ‘hello~!’.

Obviously, the actions of Lime were caught by the eyes and ears of Rio faster than Lime finding us.

Now that I think about it, he must have acted in that way because he knew that.

Kanta bringing Lime to where we were happened soon after.

It was clear to the eye that he wanted to say something, and he was acting strange for someone like Lime.

He was worried about Mio being there, so I asked her to leave the room. 

…You understand, right?

It is Mio.

Even if there’s physical distance, she can still hear us in some sort of way, you know.

And yet, the moment the sound of the door closing rang and he confirmed that we were alone, he took a deep breath and…

“Boss! I have a woman I want you to meet, so could you please come to the bath together with me?! Let’s go!” (Lime)

There was absolutely no point in taking a deep breath…

I was wondering just what the hell he was saying.

Woman.

Together.

Bath.

I don’t understand at all.

“I said it! I can do this!” (Lime)

“Were those your last words? Before going to hell?” 

“?!!!” 

There wasn’t even the sound of the door opening, and yet, right at the back of Lime…there was Mio.

Of course that would happen…

“Sis Mio! No, it is not what you think! It doesn’t mean that at all!” (Lime)

He is completely calling herSis now too.

If he is using it to address his superiors, then he is not exactly wrong.

“Yeah, right, Lime. It is unthinkable that you would teach Waka-sama bad enjoyments. You are not suicidal after all.” (Mio)

“I am not!!” (Lime)

“…So?” (Mio)

“Yes! …Eh?” (Lime)

“What’s your ex-cu-se?” (Mio)

“R-Right! I wanted him to show up for a bit in the Weitz Orphanage! There’s a female childhood friend of mine working there, you see!” (Lime)

“Is that the woman you want him to meet?” (Mio)

“Yes! That’s right!” (Lime)

“Then, what’s that about having a bath together, huh?” (Mio)

“I have been thinking all the time that it would be nice to take a bath together with Boss if there was a chance -no, together with the men of Asora!” (Lime)

“Getting to know each other between men?” (Mio)

“That’s right!” (Lime)

“Entering the bath together with people of the same gender is a type of socialization as well. Doesn’t sound like a lie… In that case…” (Mio)

“…..” 

“I forgive you.” (Mio)

“I am sorry!!” (Lime)

“…”

“I will by no means…hm? Ah? Eh?” (Lime)

“I said I forgive you. Return with Waka-sama by the time it is dinner.” (Mio)

“Ah, uhm, I don’t really…” (Makoto)

“Please! Please, just once, Boss! Right, since there’s the chance, how about going to the hot spring resort in the demonic mountains that Big Sis Tomoe spoke of! How about going for a bit with me?!” (Lime)

“Going through the trouble of going all the way to Kaleneon?” (Makoto)

We can teleport, so whether it is Tsige, Asora, or Kaleneon, it would be the same, but this is quite the proposal.

Is he troubled in regards to the orphanage?

I am leaving that matter to Tomoe, and the Forest Onis and Eldwas don’t seem like they would cause troubles about that.

But well, he is giving an unusual air to him.

“Okay, we have to return by dinner, so gotta go fast-ssu! Now now!” (Lime)

“Y-Yeah, got it!” (Makoto)

“Now now!” (Lime)

And so, I came here to the hot spring resort of the demonic mountains pushed by Lime.

And well, we are now having a naked talk as he suggested.

Cleaning off the dirt of my body and soaking my body in the warm water really feels good.

It makes it even more pleasant when the place is big.

Spring is getting close in Kaleneon. The climate is beginning to get visibly calmer.

The contrast of today’s vermillion sky of the evening and the snow is amazing.

In time, flowers will bloom and the green will spread.

You would be able to taste the finest of open air baths in the mountains then.

Tomoe will get excited again.

She has been trying to select a place in Asora for hot springs all the time, so that would come first, huh.

There’s already a number of big baths in Asora, so the bathing in itself is already pretty decent there, but…it seems like she is troubled since the word hot springs has some kind of magic to it.

There’s apparently a lot of ambitious people.

“That way of saying it was completely bad, you know that, right?” (Makoto)

“…Yes. Uhm, Boss…” (Lime)

“Hm?” (Makoto)

“Sis Mio is a bit…you know…” (Lime)

“What?” (Makoto)

“She has gotten a bit softer, don’t you think…?” (Lime)

“Softer…? Hmm…” (Makoto)

Her drastic emotional changes like an instantaneous kettle might have slightly decreased.

It is true that Mio and Tomoe have changed a little. 

“If it were the past Sis, who would have known what would have happened. And yet, she said ‘I forgive you’. And she didn’t show any kind of atmosphere to her after that.” (Lime)

“It can’t be said for certain yet what changes they had, but the two of them do feel like they give a different air from before.” (Makoto)

“On the other hand, I feel like Big Sis Tomoe has gotten stricter though…” (Lime)

“That depends on what you say, Lime, right?” (Makoto)

“…That’s in part true, but…” (Lime)

“Well, you may be right. In the past, she would push away things without a care, but now there’s times when she would consider them. When it comes to Mio, it depends on the contents, but the moments when she would take one breath before taking action have increased. At least that’s what I feel.” (Makoto)

This is simply my impressions of when Tomoe and Mio are with me.

Just that, the statements of Lime this time around are from the time when he himself was desperate and Mio gave him a ‘wait’ for a little bit. 

I have known Lime for long, and he is one of the few men who I can speak to familiarly.

“Now then, we have washed off the soap and are now refreshed. We are also having a naked talk between men too here, but…what do we do now? Want to call Shiki, Mondo, or Beren as well? If you have something you want to talk to me about with just us two, I am listening.” (Makoto)

Did Lime’s childhood friend in the orphanage get in some kind of trouble? 

…I don’t think there would be a problem of that degree that would require me though.

Maybe that woman and Lime are marrying?

I have never acted as a matchmaker, and in the first place, I myself am not married, you know? 

“Actually, my childhood friend was raised in the same orphanage as me, and she is currently looking after the children there. Her name’s Seina.” (Lime)

“Okay?” (Makoto)

An employee of an orphanage.

There’s such a job route too for an orphan, huh.

The adventurer path Lime chose is really impulsive, but I feel like that’s the main route people take.

There’s also many who take jobs in companies.

In Rembrandt-san’s place, there’s quite a lot of orphans employed.

“She said she wanted to meet the representative of the Kuzunoha Company once.” (Lime)

“Me? Why?” (Makoto)

The…Weitz Orphanage, was it?

I don’t know how much the other companies support the orphanages, but the kind of support the Rembrandt Company does should be a popular method.

On top of that, it is the place Lime was raised, so it is kinda like his hometown. That’s why we have been giving them gifts every now and then.

If she were to ask for even more support than what it is already being given, it is not like we can’t, but it would be troubling.

It would be a pain if other companies were to suspect us helping them out so much.

“She said it would be rude not to meet the representative even though they have been receiving such generous support. Uhm, I know you are busy. If you want, I can have Seina and the director  show up in the company.” (Lime)

“…Hmm, Lime.” (Makoto)

“Yes?” (Lime)

“The Weitz Orphanage, right? I do think we have been giving them a generous amount of support.” (Makoto)

“No doubt about it.” (Lime)

“If they were to forcefully ask for even more, it would be troubling, you know?” (Makoto)

“No, Boss. It is not like they are trying to ask for more money, or trying to show you the tragic state of the orphanage to pull even more support.” (Lime)

“Okay.” (Makoto)

That’s the only thing that comes to mind, though.

And then, if I were to show up and were to see the situation of the children as well as the tattered (probably) building, I feel like I might end up promising to give them more support. 

Don’t know yet though.

It would be sad if they were to think of me as an easy representative.

“It is actually the contrary.” (Lime)

“Contrary?” (Makoto)

Huh?

…In other words, the support is too much?

Then there’s not really any need to meet the representative, right?

Cause you know, even if they stay silent, they would get plenty enough support and it would be from sponsors that don’t say much back, right?

Isn’t that the best?

“I once again confirmed the support of the Kuzunoha Company, and it is overwhelming. It is on a level where the Weitz Orphanage can sustain itself from just the support of the Kuzunoha Company.” (Lime)

The orphanage is able to work without worrying about the eyes of the sponsor and the children won’t starve.

Isn’t that ideal?

…No, the moment I thought about ‘ideal’…my thoughts stopped for a moment.

“…Could it be…” (Makoto)

“……”

“They are suspecting us? That there might be some sort of conspiracy, or ulterior motive?” (Makoto)

“…I am truly sorry about this, but…that’s exactly right. Sorry.” (Lime)

In other words, donating out of good will is impossible.

Suspect support that doesn’t ask for anything back.

There’s nothing as scary as something free.

It must be that, right? 

The lower the organization is in society, the more suspicious they get about the actions of others that don’t seek for anything in return.

This is something I was taught by Rembrandt-san.

Thank the donations given out of good will.

Party to the support that asks nothing in return.

Free is the best.

It just doesn’t work that way.

“In other words, having Tomoe vouch for you about your workplace ended up having a negative effect instead?” (Makoto)

“…Yeah.” (Lime)

“Using the excuse that it was your bonus to teach them cooking as well?” (Makoto)

“…That was truly helpful, thank you very much.” (Lime)

“It was our own decision to do so, so don’t mind it. I see. So the extra food and clothes was also a bad idea, huh. I thought that was decent though.” (Makoto)

“…It was an incredibly helpful support. But fresh vegetables are not something that you just have extra of, you simply eat them if you have those. Dried food can be stored, so it is not stuff that you can have too much of. On top of that, the sizes of the clothes were varied and had no dirt. It can’t be helped that, even people aside from Seina, would hold slight suspicions from this.” (Lime)

Since we were doing it, I thought it would be best if they were to last long, and fresh vegetables have more nutrients. 

Children grow fast, so I thought that it would be better if the sizes were varied.

Just that, we get a whole lot of fresh vegetables in Asora, so it really is on a level where we have more than we need.

Even the dried food, we chose trial products that were mass-produced and could be eaten.

The clothes were made when the Gorgons and Orcs were practicing.

It is not like we bought them with a whole lot of money!

Also, the Weitz Orphanage is useful to Asora as well.

It is completely our convenience.

We are having the demi-human employees purposely go there to check the reactions of the children and the employees.

I have been properly getting reports from Tomoe about this every now and then.

Most of them were happy reports about there practically being no signs of being looked down upon. 

There was a decent amount at first though.

Thinking about the relationship between the Kuzunoha Company and the Weitz Orphanage, this might be natural, but treating demi-humans as slaves and animals even if they are weaker than them is also a hyuman trait.

“…”

“As someone who has seen Boss personally, I understand that this isn’t much for Boss and the Kuzunoha Company. But in the eyes of the normal populace, what do you profit from doing this? The more estranged the people are, the more doubtful they end up being…” (Lime)

Wait.

Can’t we use that?

The orphanage may have a similar perception, but it wouldn’t be strange, right?

“…The base of it is about criminal rehabilitation though.” (Makoto)

“Criminal? Boss?” (Lime)

I feel like it could work.

It could be applied.

Also, if you say the support of the Kuzunoha Company is excessive, Seina-san and Direction-san, it would be easier for them to accept if I were to bring out a demand like this when I am meeting them.

“It is about a matter that Tomoe brought out before.” (Makoto)

“Big Sis?” (Lime)

Edo and Onihei. <Onihei is about “Heizō the demon,”. He led a band of samurai police and cultivated reformed criminals as informants to solve difficult crimes.>

Both of them are big favorites of Tomoe.

She would happily do the modifications, no, she might even spearhead it.

There wasn’t much use in Asora, and it was a system that there were no plans to be made.

“More enemies might appear, but we will be able to pour more strength over to this side for a while. There’s room for consideration, huh…” (Makoto)

“Uhm, Boss? What are you…” (Lime)

I’ve decided.

Time to leave the bath.

If I end up getting a heat stroke when it is between men, I feel like I would get teased by those two.

…Tamaki might join in on that, so it would be three, huh.

Whichever the case, I wouldn’t want that.

“Labourers…no, create a yoseba.” (Makoto) <Yoseba is a place where a large number of day laborers and job seekers gather. Also called a stop. In addition, it is a jail word used by the yakuza.>

“Labourers? Yoseba?” (Lime)

“Lime.” (Makoto)

“Yes?” (Lime)

“I will meet Seina-san tomorrow. I will be the one going to the orphanage.” (Makoto)

“! R-Really?!” (Lime)

“Of course. I will go together with Tomoe, so ask for times they are available.” (Makoto)

“It would be best for it to be at a time Boss can. They can manage whatever convenience you need. You are doing work in the Dusk Street right now, Boss.” (Lime)

“…No, you were the one who trespassed the Dusk Street, Lime.” (Makoto)

“Ah, right… Sorry about that.” (Lime)

“It is okay. It wasn’t something that we could work out in one or two days anyways. We spoke to the top there, but who knows how much of what he said we can trust. Since it is that kind of place, we are evaluating how to move before doing anything. In that case, I will match the convenience of the orphanage.” (Makoto)

Also, the people this time are receiving our support.

Our standing is originally higher.

If we match the meeting time to their convenience, we can move the conversation to our advantage.

I will take as much advantage as I can get.

That Weitz Orphanage.

If they had just silently received our support, as long as they didn’t speak ill of us or anything, they would have been able to operate as they were.

You won’t be getting away from this, we are going to restructure you.

“I will set things up by today!” (Lime)

“Counting on you. Well then, let’s go back.” (Makoto)

“Uhm…!” (Lime)

“?” (Makoto)

“It is okay if you were to tell me while we get dressed. There’s something I would like to talk about in regards to your secret technique!” (Lime)

“You, asking me about a secret technique?” (Makoto)

What is he talking about?

The Lime today is a real mystery.

“I have already looked at the goods a plenty lot, so please tell me to a degree that Big Sis won’t kill me-ssu!!” (Lime)

Looked?

He certainly did raise some sort of short scream and clapped his hands together at the time when I was washing my head.

I really can’t understand him.

“Talks involving Tomoe and Mio are truly landmines right now. So, please Lime, make sure not to slip anything from your mouth. Depending on the contents, not only your words will be slipping, but your life too! I bear no responsibility for resurrections, okay?!” (Makoto)

“My lips are sealed!” (Lime)

I feel like this won’t go well.

The return to the Demonic Mountain’s hot spring resort.

This time around, I finished bathing without collapsing from a heat stroke.

  2. Thanks for the chapter.
    Makoto has grown so much T_T…
    200 chapters earlier I wouldn’t think he would have managed to understand the problem so easily.

    1. I think he would have and would have gone and confused them even more by being even nicer . Though I’m betting he will still confuse the life out of Seina and the director of the orphanage.

  3. Well at least Mio didn’t automatically assume Lime was trying to hit on Makoto by suggesting they go to the baths together. That happens enough in other series with paranoid jealous women.

    And Lime sure keeps tempting fate. Even Makoto is saying he won’t resurrect him.

    Anyways it is a bit surprising that Makoto was able to figure out the issue by himself. That all his support of the orphanage is seen as suspicious by the people there because he’s doing it without expecting anything in return. Anyways it looks like he’s gonna say he wants the orphanage to work as informants or something when he meets Seina.

  4. So, I think Lime’s asking about his sex life and Makoto is just not getting it…
    Innocence permeates his entirety even when he’s lost his purity.
    Well, if Makoto talks, I feel like the info will leak to Tomoe and Mio regardless of what he tries to do to suppress it.

  5. It doesn’t surprise me that makoto understood the orphanage’s worry, he went through the same thing with prince Joshua. He though “ah, there’s nothing as expensive as a free gift” or something like that when Joshua wanted him to demand something. Joshua wanted makoto to ask for something as big as land or peerage to repay keeping the secret.

    I remember bc i was thinking: what, you think you and makoto are peers? You’re a prince(ss) and he’s a god king. A bestowed rank of nobility would be a downgrade. The peddle license was not exactly valuable to makoto, he was already doing that anyway (and it’s hard to stop teleporting peddlers). The license made Joshua feel better about the secret, and kinda retroactively saved face for the Kingdom by making the previously unauthorized trading officially sanctioned by the Crown.

    thx lots for teh translations!!!

  6. Thoughts on Mio and Tomoe’s changes;

    –Tomoe is … in Mass Effect dialog terms… having the Goldfish Talk with herself. The Life Span Talk. She’s gotten more strict because she is protecting the time she has with the goldfish (makoto). Gonna enjoy every day to the fullest. In one of the dream timelines, Mio and Tomoe got too possessive of Makoto and got themselves killed by the goddess (who i bet is named Circe*). Making a pact with Shiki saved them from that. … or put it off until now. So now Tomoe the immortal invincible dragon is more scared than before of the the time when makoto gets old.

    –Mio is … feeling … just great. She’s a live-in-the-moment intuitive kinda spider. She’s only been aware and thinking for a few years, so she doesn’t have the long perspective of Tomoe. She’s more forgiving because she’s happy, and much less afraid of losing her connection with Makoto. Before, she saw her slavery/pact as the only thing binding her and Makoto together. Now? He’s returned her feelings. She used to be veeeeery veeeeeery wary of things that might get between her and Makoto, but now she’s much more chill. Makoto won’t abandon her, so she’s content.

    Tomoe’s fantasy of 100+ Makoto Jr’s is more possible now that Mio is confident that Makoto likes her for more than her slave collar. And remember: Tomoe has that baby fantasy for the same reason Sofia is part dragon and toa has a fancy new dagger: the old immortals like mementos of loved ones. Or maybe need the reality anchors.

    *Mythical Circe is daughter of a Sun god, and definitely has magic and maybe has creation in her purview. Tsuki Goddess uses golden color magic, and i think i remember her Swords using a special element of magic (i’d guess Sun, makoto showed that Moon was an element). She’d be weaker than Athena, and could be motivated to make a world of beautiful people. Circe “imprisoned” hawt people she liked. Narrative-ly, it would explain athena as god visitor #3, introducing greek gods into the main story, and be a good foil idea to the “moon led journey” as she’s a sun-themed antagonist. Tsuki goddess is probably a light/sun themed god, but not amaterasu, and i cant think of many other female light/sun gods that a japanese author would know.
    Maybe Isis kinda… with the magic purview… but nah. I’m going with Circe as my bet.

    1. Why do you think the goddess’ name is Circe? Feels like it could’ve been Venus or Aphrodite…

      And I’m not sure where I read this, or even if this is correct, but I recall that the goddess wasn’t the creator of that world and only assumed the role of goddess at some point during that world’s existence.

      1. Venus = Aphrodite in my head, but i know greek stuff more than roman so i lean on their lore more. I know the the seafoam birth myth, I don’t know if Venus has a different story.

        You are right. Goddess came to … Pangaea Japan world… Panpan land… Japaea… earth 2 … demi earth… um … RootWorld. …came to RootWorld and negotiated with the locals (dragons and neptunes at least). She wanted a petri dish world where she could grow her ideal humans. She brought the spirits to add a magic system, she made a part of the world fertile, and she provided divine protection to the inhabitants. And in exchange, she brought in humans and has been modifying them to suit her aesthetics/tastes. Root says the older a race is, the more they don’t like the spirits, so I’m thinking that the old races regret the deal. We don’t actually know what the negotiations were exactly like, i just know for sure about the spirits and divine protection things.

        She may not have created the world, but Goddess knows Creation the divine skill. She made the items she gave the heroes, and i think i remember the three gods saying that she was managing RootLand because she was a creation god. When they were thinking of replacing her, they thought of tagging in a hindu creation god to do the job.

        Aphrodite is a possibility for Goddess. On second thought, I could make that argument too. She’s married to Hephaestus, but doesn’t really like the lame god very much, which might have made her want to make pretty humans? She herself isn’t a war god, but she gets with Aries every chance she gets, she might respect war. She’s a pretty passive goddess most of the time. She’s the god of love, but hera is more the god of beauty, there’s a reason Zeus is married to the goddess of marriage. Aphrodite does go off to do things on her own, Hephaestus doesn’t get out much. She might be hiding from her husband, and thus hiding her name. She is a bit associated with the color gold.

        Hera is another possibility with the beauty standards and transformations, looking different to the different earthlings, but i wasn’t getting that vibe. She’d kinda have a reason to hide her name too, but I think of Hera as more … vengeance-y than Goddess has shown herself to be. Goddess is more … petulant and whimsical. Hera is more of a big boss goddess.

        I’m still thinking Circe is Goddess. Athena was talking down to her, and i don’t think she’d do that to the elder Aphrodite. Zeus … birthed … Athena much later than Uranus … birthed Aphrodite. Both could be creation gods, but with the Spirits adding magic to the world, I’d think it’s more likely Circe. Circe is a minor god, at best. She’d be at the level where other gods could bully her with meetings and busy work.

        Goddess checklist:
        1: Is a god
        2: as strong or weaker than Athena who was much weaker than the other two
        3: with a gold theme
        4: has creation and/or magic purview
        5: has a form over function kinda thinking
        6: and is not lawful. She cuts corners, takes short cuts, breaks rules.

        am i missing any for-sure clues?

      2. Well, if you want to go the Aphrodite/Venus route, she is the mother of Aeneas, who was said to be the Ancestor of Rome, as the father of Romulus and Remus. Granted, this is mythology. Anyways, I think that the founding of Rome could be factored in as a possibility of the Goddess’ creation ability. Also, the origins of Aphrodite stem from Ishtar who was also a War Goddess. So the connection with Ishtar and Rome should factor in to her actual power.
        Still, I don’t think that it’s Aphrodite/Venus.
        I also don’t think it would be Hera, because she is the Queen of Olympus, and she holds authority of Athena.
        As for Circe, I suppose it could be her, but I don’t recall any stories about her being obsessed with beauty.
        I think it’s more likely that it’s probably Freya, who is a Goddess of Beauty. She’s also known to be skilled in Norse Magic. She also holds authority over the Valkyries. And since she’s from a different Pantheon, Athena doesn’t necessarily need to hold back towards her.

      3. Yeah see, the roman Venus specific stories… I don’t know them very well. I might have missed something there.

        Ishtar is a very good possibility, maybe my 2nd place guess. The blessing favoring females points slightly in that direction, from what little i can remember. She’d be a goddess that might care about looks, as goddess of prostitution. And now that i think about it more, prostitution is mentioned a lot in the story.
        I’m using Athena’s presence in the main story as a clue, and even in the side stories, I don’t remember the Babylonian Pantheon mentioned. I could be wrong.

        I’m pretty weak on Norse lore, but a quick search suggests to me that the colors don’t mach between Goddess and Freya. Skills might, personality might, but Freya is more associated with Green and Red than Gold. There was something about 3 Norse themed Seers in a side story… but i don’t remember it well. The Norse gods are officially in the story, so it is possible.

        All this theory crafting is inviting me to go down a deep dark theology wiki walk.

    2. Tomoe the Dream/Memory Dragon has gotten some new Death related powers and responsibilities (though she isn’t obligated to by Fushu), so that may be why she is being more strict. She also has to make the world a better place, for her children to enjoy too.

      On the Goddess front, we still haven’t gotten any confirmation on her having any creation powers, and she was only entrusted with the Communication/Understanding authority. What she has shown, is a God’s ability to transform the shape and features, of someone else’ creation, then take credit for the work. In that light, the myth of Circe turning all lustful men that visited her home into animals, and falling for Jason because he wasn’t turned, does sound like something the Bug might do…. I think I once voted for Freya, as female-centric war goddess, and Witch, could still be….

      1. “He’s close to death. In fact, it is surprising that he is not already dead. The surface tension is such that he is just barely staying alive. She is even a goddess with the power of CREATION; what a fool. She just pushed the “Mastery of Words’ Power” into an ordinary person.” (Daikokuten) Chapter 169

        and


        “That girl, just how much of a fool is she? We gave her five or six things to manage in this world, but perhaps we should take them all back and give them to our Brahma.” (Daikokuten)

        TLN: Brahma is the Hindu god of CREATION
        ” – Chapter 169

        I’m thinking Creation Gods directly manage worlds, and other gods do other things. Destruction Gods clear away clutter timelines made by earth human free will.

      2. “he” is meant by the Shiva, the goddess is said to be almost dead, but why does Makoto hold his sentence and for the matter of divine protection, because the goddess shared blindly with the hyuman, Makoto’s strength was only a quarter or part of Makoto’s body. as a human who lives in origin. or a goddess whose origins are still gray unlike izanagi and izanami as well as amaterasu born from the eyes of her parents, if Makoto became a god the possibility of encouraging divinity could be a toa because the toa had first reached the ground where Makoto was dropped goddess but the goddess has not been traced even the name of the goddess nobody knows in that world

    3. because Makoto was born in Japan which is said to be the place where the sun rises can be used as a way that Makoto can also be called circe with the theme of the moon is that what you mean?

      Like

      1. The story in English is called “Moon-led Journey Across Another World.”

        It kind of makes sense to me that the primary antagonist would be sun-themed. Sun and the moon are often described as opposites. Goddess’ golden color mana helps put that into my head. Remember: Root the myriad color dragon, also has golden magic color. Light, sun, colors, golden.

        Circe is the daughter of Helios. Helios is a greek sun god … or titan… but we’ll say god.

        Makoto was born in Japan so a Japanese god was responsible for him early in the story. That doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with Goddess, though the fact that all the humans isekai’d to Goddess’ world seem to be from Japan might be a clue against Goddess=Circe.

        Circe tends to be a “bad guy” character in stories, is sun affiliated, magical, and is a pretty good personality and strength match for Goddess. So she’s my bet.

      3. what is the possibility of Makoto’s relationship with a girl named arte beret. And who the girl mentioned by Tsukuyomi came to mention “The place of his birth and the environment that was raised, when humans began to question it, the person who would become their supporter would not become a God. The past he has lived, friends he can rely on, figures that he looks at. That kind of thing. Furthermore, I regret having made a statement that was like trying to cover up for that goddess. Traditionally I ask Makoto to close my eyes to the goddess’s actions. Of course if the relationship with the woman goes well, that is desirable but, in the case the child follows carelessly, listens to what he says and turns out to be different than expected. ” source: https://isekailunatic.com/2015/08/24/prologue-pov-the-meeting-with-the-god-of-moon-tsukuyomi/

      ◘ Addition: the “goddess” is related to pears somehow:

      1. … Yeah, ok. Aphrodite won’t be as fun as Circe, but that is very strong evidence that Goddess = Aphrodite. I think a greek god is more likely than a norse god (Athena’s presence), and the pear thing points to a particular greek god.

  7. A couple of sayings come to mind while reading this chapter…

    A gentleman does not kiss and tell (to Makoto)
    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned (in regards to the missuses)
    Dead men tell no tales (Lime)

    Thanks for the chapter.

    1. Now that you mention it, that might be another physical modification the Bug made to the hyumans. (Consider that a gorilla is twice as heavy as a human, but “it” is only a fraction of the size.)

      Or maybe living on the original world makes “that” larger in comparison. Trashmoki is having a lot of kids, and Root can only get pregnant from humans.

      1. You know that make perfect Sense the goddess made the hyuuman sons smaller to make then cuter?. But Makoto is hyuuman as it root so maybe some other factor changed his little boy?

        It could also be an sequel to Makoto surviving his death fate and that modified his body, also could come from his concentration training as an side effects

        Ok my crazy theory here remember when the gods said he had an talent that he whent away from, we always say maybe was an talent for killing but what if it was for lovemaking? It would make perfect Sense since an child would not like that talent(specially Makoto) and that also would give him an easy life on Earth as an gigolo

  9. For now, i dont understand about the reference of classic drama which was Tomoe’s favorite and the restructuring the orphanage base on it. Maybe they were creating a spy network which on the surface do only normal works in the day time. Its like your neighborhood moms which everyday has a fresh rumors to each others…

    1. I don’t get the reference either, but i think i get the gist of it. The idea is: uplift the poor and they won’t resort to crime. Give the poor jobs, and they won’t steal to survive. Starve Dusk of future members by giving orphans another choice.

      Sounds like that choice is independent day labor. Think… the people who hang around hardware stores who’ll do small job contractor work. An alternative to adventuring, wage slave labor, and dusk street.

  10. Man I really want the next chapter! But Reigokai has given us a lot and more than we ask… can’t complain and won’t try. Really, thanks for all your effort!

    Makoto sure has grown throughout this story, but there were times when it felt like the story back peddled his progress. I wonder if the author will be more consistent with his growth and I do wonder in which direction he’ll take with Makoto. He’s gotten to know a woman’s embrace, learning under Patrick Rembrandt as a merchant, taking more consideration in the matters involving his company’s image, and overall is growing to be a better CEO and leader! Of course I don’t expect him to be able to handle discussions as effectively as Rembrandt or others who’ve done it for decades. That would be a immersion breaker.

    As for Asora, I’m not sure what has changed in regards to his thoughts about it. What do you guys think? Oh and Lime, you got off this time but try to restrain yourself before using the “LEROOOY JENKINS!!” strat… Makoto doesn’t even assure you a resurrection.

    1. Oof, don’t bring those thoughts here.
      Tomoe said she had no experience in romance and *listened* for advice from Lime before doing the deed.
      She was clueless about how much a person can last when having sex. Lime got shocked by how long Makoto lasts.
      Tomoe thought Makoto lasting that long was normal.
      These two thoughts make it clear that she doesn’t have a normal frame of reference. We can tell from this that she knows no one aside from the abnormal Makoto.

  13. i dont think this is the other talent that makoto have.. since he is a hyuman that gained the ability of a HUMAN by living in THAT world (original Earth). so in other word Makoto stamina is on par with the super hyuman stamina, so he lasting so long is a given. plus he also trained everyday which makes him more powerful in bed. like any males, makoto also have lust, so maybe he research the technique and skill needed .

    Mio has CHANGED! She has mellowed so much! So wonderful to see that.

    Lime take a breath and THINK before you speak! If things were normal you would have died!

    And Waka-sa a has grown enough to not only recognise the problem but also to face it head on and not shake it off as a bad job! Although I am confused in regards to what the plans for range orphanage are…

    Well I guess we shall just have to wait and see.

    I do love the community here and the discussions on mythology. I can’t say I had ever heard of Circe but shall have to look her up. It has been stated by the three visiting gods that Buggess has the power of creation, it is one of the reasons that she was allowed to govern the world but I think she is just too lazy and uninterested to start from scratch on things.

  17. This has probably been said before but I feel like makoto May become a god in the future. At least something very close possibly gaining a very long/infinite life. There are quite a few signs in my opinion that the author is considering this route if not already decided on it. I mean he’s achieving all these God like things. His character personally seems to have a strong drive to remain mortal but I feel like he may not have a choice or become one unintentionally. Curious if Azusa will become sentient like the sword or the door. Lastly did we get any hint of what Tamaki’s agenda will ultimately be?

      Probably to set him up towards Godhood path or just to charge these jewels in temples for some purpose.
