WM – Chapter 104: Mayhem in the capital of Symphonia (4)

“I am the Captain of the Sun Knights 1st Division, Ortho. Pleased to meet you, Rozes’s Hero-sama.” 

“2nd Division’s Captain, Sutora. Let’s fight together.” 

“Northern Sky Knight Order, Lieutenant, Baguh. Nice to meet you.” 

While heading to the North Gate, the commanders of the troops that will be fighting with us greeted us.

“First Prince of Rozes, the Glacial Hero, Leonard. Nice to meet you.” 

“Hero of Rozes, Makoto…” 

I am not used to having attention like this.

There’s someone glaring like crazy at me though.

A beautiful female knight with blonde hair, golden armor, and slanted eyes.

This should be our first time meeting, but she looks similar to someone.

Ah, she came here.

“Captain of the Templar unit, Janet Valentine. My brother was in your care the other day.” 

“…Uhm…” (Makoto)

Aah, the little sister of Geralt-san!

She does resemble him! 

Hm? Then…the Northern Sky Knight Order is…

“Sorry, Hero-dono. Captain Geralt was originally supposed to be here.” 

I noticed after Lieutenant-san said that.

This is the unit of Geralt-san?! 

I feel like the gazes of the North Sky Knight Order were cold.

General-san! Why did you put the Water Country here?! 

Bullying? Is it bullying?

(Aah, so awkward…) (Makoto)

The conversation didn’t get any lively on the way.

◇In front of the North Gate◇

The advance of the monsters is not fast.

They are progressing slowly as if trying to daunt us.

Maybe because they are controlled by tamers, the monsters are docile to a creepy extent.

…They must be reserving their energy to rampage later.

“They are close, Makoto-san…” (Leonard)

Prince Leonard has a pale face.

“There’s no need to fear! There’s around 5,000 monsters! We have more than 10,000 over here!” 

The Guardian Knight old man is energetic.

Now that I think about it, I have finally overlapped posts with this old man, huh.

“Why are you guys acting so high-and-mighty? Even though you are knights from a weak country.” 

“Right right, don’t get in our way.” 

“Soldiers of the Water Country aren’t needed, right? Kyahaha.” 

Voices mocking us were raining down on us from above.

I look up and…

(Pegasus knights?) (Makoto)

Female knights with Janet-san from before at the lead were riding pegasuses and flying elegantly in the air.

All the female knights look good and with the pegasuses added to it, it is picturesque, but…

(They sound like people who have a terrible personality.) (Makoto)

I don’t want to get close to them.

“Rozes Hero, Makoto, your ability in defeating my brother, I am hoping here that it wasn’t just luck.” (Janet)

The Templar Captain Janet’s voice was thorny.

Well, it can’t be helped so I just take it.

“Is there any plan?” (Makoto)

I try asking the Sun Knight Captain Ortho-san.

“According to the scout unit, the monsters approaching here don’t have Taboo Monsters in it.” (Ortho)

“Hoh, then are these guys a diversion?” (Makoto)

If there’s no strong monsters, that’s a relief.

“It looks like that’s the case. But lowering our guard can cost our lives.” 

“Before the monsters arrive, I will have the mage units shoot them all at once.” 

“I think we can reduce their numbers by half with magic attacks, Hero-dono.” 

“Ooh.” (Makoto)

It is true that, at just a glance, I can tell that there’s more than 3,000 mages chanting.

Judging from the chanting, it is all High Rank Magic.

This is a good preemptive attack.

The monsters are coming over here and in groups.

They can become good targets.

(I would have preferred the seaside position though.) (Makoto)

Too late at this point though.

But because the seaside was judged to be the main forces of the Snake Church, they left the strongest fighting force of the Sun Country.

In other words…


A light that dazzled my eyes for a second attacked me.

I turned around and, at the West Gate, a giant pillar of light that turned into a cross was shining there.


“The Light Hero-dono, huh.” 

“The legendary Light Sword Skill. No matter how many times I see it, it shows unbelievable power.” 

“Taboo Monsters must have shown there.” 

I hear the Sun Knights talk.

The Skills of Sakurai-kun are flashy as always.

And the monsters at the seaside really were the real aim.

“Looks like the battle has begun at the West Gate.” 

“Our side should soon…Hm?” 


We heard a cry like that of a bird.

“Ooh! What’s that?!” 

At the South Gate the Guardian Knight Old Man was pointing at, there’s a giant bird made of fire flapping its wings.

“Fire Phoenix…A Fire Monarch Spell. To think there was a powerful person like that.” 

The Sun Knights were surprised.

I am also surprised actually.

The mana of the person using that spell…isn’t that Lucy?

“Lucy can use Monarch Magic now, huh…” (Makoto)

Even though it was before a battle, my eyes were getting hot. 

It reminds me of the time when Lucy and I were training together in fire magic at Makkaren.

Honestly speaking, there was a time when I thought that Lucy’s Fire Monarch Magic Skill was just for show.

You have grown so much…

Next time, I will have her show me her magic from up close.

“T-That’s the magic of Lucy-san?!” (Leonard)

“What?! How overwhelming!” 

Prince Leonard and the Guardian Knight old man were shocked.

By the way, I had Sa-san go together with Lucy.

Even if she is with the Great Sage-sama, I didn’t want Lucy to be the only one alone.

“A mage from Rozes, huh…” 

The Lieutenant of the Sky Order was dumbfounded.

It feels good having my comrade praised.

But there’s something that bothers me…

“It has cleared up…” (Makoto)

Maybe because of the Light Sword of Sakurai-kun or the Monarch Spell of Lucy…

The rain that the Great Sage-sama made is gone.

There’s still clouds remaining, but the rain has stopped.

Will I be able to use Water Magic…?

I return my gaze to the approaching monsters.

I could see the figure of big monsters from afar. 

“They are coming.” (Makoto)


The Captain of the Sun Knights nods at my voice.

My [RPG Player] activates.

(Eh?) (Makoto)

[Will you begin the battle against the mob of Ancient Monsters?] 

Yes ←


(A choice here…? What an ominous timing.) (Makoto)

I have no intentions of running away at this point in time.


(The word Ancient is bothering me…) (Makoto)

Ancient…meaning, they have been alive since a long time ago, right?

“Is there someone here who has the Appraisal Skill? If possible, one with Superior or higher.” (Makoto)

I shout this to the people of the Sun Knights and the Sky Order.

“I do, Hero-dono.” 

A mage-looking person raises his hand.

“What are you checking at this point in time? Scared, Water Country’s Hero?” 


“Got your guts taken out after seeing the mob of monsters?” 

Ignoring the female knights that were provoking me, I ask the mage.

“Can you please check if there’s a 1,000 years monster within those monsters?” (Makoto)

“Hero-dono! Are you saying there’s a 1,000 year monster there?” 

“Probably…” (Makoto)

“Please wait for a bit…” 

The attention of everyone gathers to me and the mage.

“I-I have confirmed…” 

The voice of the mage is trembling.

“How is it?” “Was there a 1,000 year monster?” “Aren’t you way too scared, Water Country Weakling?” 

“All of them!” 

Ah damn, all of them, huh.

If I remember correctly, monsters of 1,000 years ago were 3-4 times stronger than the usual monster, right?

“An army of around 5,000 monsters…and all of them are 1,000 year monsters, you say?!” 

“N-No way…”

“That’s a lie, right…?”

“That’s impossible…” 

The expressions of everyone changed.

Geh…could it be that this was the main force?! 

Archbishop Isaac used the Taboo Monsters as bait to pull Sakurai-kun there?

“Mage units, shoot!” 

At the same time that the 1st Division Sun Knight Captain, Ortho-san, gave his signal, several thousands of flashes were shot.

The flashes were shot towards the center of the monsters, and explosions occurred creating gales.

“Immediately begin chanting for the next volley! The enemies in front of you are all 1,000 year monsters! They won’t be defeated with just this!” 


It is not like the monsters were answering to the voice of the Knight Captain, but they all raised roars of intimidation.

And then, they rush towards us.

Fallen monsters…from what I can see, there’s not a single fallen one?! 

Didn’t he say that we could defeat around half of them?

So it was calculated from normal monsters, huh…

“Can we defeat those?” (Makoto)

I tried asking the 2nd Division Captain, but…

“There’s a high chance we can’t defeat them with these numbers. We have sent a request for reinforcements, Hero-dono.” 

His voice was incredibly tense.

But he is composed.

If he has called for reinforcements, there’s only one thing to do.

“Then, let’s buy time. Prince Leonard, lend me a hand.” (Makoto)

“Y-Yes! Hiyah!” (Leonard)

Prince Leonard lets out a feminine voice and I felt bad about it, but…

“Synchro! And, Spirit-sans, please lend me your strength!” (Makoto)

I combine the mana of Prince Leonard and the mana of the Spirits.

“Ice Magic: [Ice Wall]!” (Makoto)


I create a wall of ice as thick as possible between us and the monsters.

“W-Wow.” “…A wall of ice this big chantless…” “What an incredible amount of mana.” 

The knights were making a ruckus, but this is just to buy time.

“People who can use Earth Magic! Reinforce the wall of the Hero-dono!” 

“Hunt the monsters that climb up the wall or try to go around it!” 

“Mages, shoot your next volley at the other side of the wall! Shoot until your mana runs out!” 

An intense battle began against the monsters that were trying to go around it from both sides.

The mages continued shooting magic.


“Wyverns too!” 

The monsters that can fly went over the wall and attacked us!

It is not like the Griffon that I know of, its whole body is pitch black.

This is a 1,000 year monster! 

“Listen here! Protect the Hero-donos! We can’t lose the Hero-donos in a fight like this!” 


(Eh? What’s with that?) (Makoto)

Without understanding what they were trying to do here, the Sun Knights make formations with us at the center.

“U-Uhm, Ortho-san?” (Makoto)

“This is an order from Princess Noel. She told us that the safety of the other country’s heroes, Leonard-sama and Makoto-sama, is the highest priority.” (Ortho)

“That’s…” (Makoto)

“Thanks to you, Makoto-sama, we managed to learn that they were 1,000 year monsters beforehand, and you even created a defensive wall of ice. The rest is our job!” (Ortho)

“Please stand back.” 

Even the Lieutenant of the Sky Order stood in front of us and tried to protect us.

“Guwah!” “Gahah!” “Damn it!” 

The Sun Knights and Sky Knights were putting up a good fight, but they were falling one by one.

Each and every one of those monsters is abnormally tough.

Even when we think that they have been defeated, they stand up again.

The Ice Wall that was keeping back the monsters had cracks forming in it.

*Pang! Pang!*

The sound of monsters crashing onto the wall could be heard.

(When that wall breaks, the land monsters will all attack us at once…) (Makoto)

Even though we are being pushed back as we are now, if that were to happen as well, it would be over.

We would be rushed in an instant.


“A Red Dragon!” 

The pegasus knights are being attacked by a dragon?!

Water Magic: [Ice Spear]!

Right before the dragon bites the female knight, I pierce the eye of the Dragon. 


The Dragon writhes its body in pain.

“You saved me!” 

“Not yet!” (Makoto)

I simply distracted it.

The dragon raised a loud roar and did the preliminary moves for a fire breath.

“Water Magic: [Ice Spear]!” (Makoto)

I squeeze out my last bit of mana and crush the other eye of the dragon.

The fire breath was shot at a completely different direction from where the female knight is.

(Spirit-sans…Spirit-sans…) (Makoto)

No good.

The power of the Holy Gods is strong here at the Sun Country’s Capital.

There’s only a few Spirits here, and their voices are low.

At the time when I created the Ice Wall, I reached the limit to the mana I can have the Spirits lend me.

(What should I do…?) (Makoto)

The amount of monsters is increasing.

Our numbers are slowly decreasing.

Even with [Clear Mind], uneasiness and anxiety was hitting my head.

At that time…


A giant lightning shoots down the Red Dragon and the wyverns around.

Large drops of rain fall, and the wind rages.

(The Great Sage-sama?!) (Makoto)

“You bastards! Can you even call yourselves the strongest Northern Sky Knights like that?! Put more spirit into it!” 

Armor shining in golden, and dazzling blonde hair.

A dignified figure clad in aura that was as if electricity was running through his whole body.

The Lightning Hero, Geralt.

Ooh, what perfect timing! 

The Hero coming late!


The Northern Sky Knights answer to the speech of the Lightning Hero.

Relief appeared in the smiles of the Sun Knights.

What, so you are actually trusted, Geralt-san.


The defensive wall was broken!

Monsters jump in from the opening.

“Drop dead, monsters!” (Geralt)

Geralt-san rushes right into the very center of the place where the monsters are flowing in from.

Uah, he is rushing there?

That’s impressive, Lightning Hero.

“M-Makoto-san, Geralt-dono doesn’t know they are 1,000 year monsters, right…?” (Leonard)


Me and the Knight Captain by my side let out dumbfounded voices.

Ah, shit. We have to warn him!

“Ooi, Geralt-san~!” “Geralt-dono~!” 

“DIEEEEEE!” (Geralt)

The voice of the Knight Captain and I didn’t reach him, and he disappeared within a cloud of dust after lunging into the mob of monsters.

…Uhm, will he be okay?

    1. YES! Victory for humanity! The callous, arrogant, petty, cruel…erm… on a second thought, maybe a bot ruled world is not so bad after all…?

    1. Maybe the info just flew outside the window cus the alliance with the moon oracle was more of a shock to them. At least Makoto remembers it but didn’t suggest it to the general as it might be seen by the others sun country soldiers as being too arrogant to request your own battlefield.

    2. I immediately having a presumption if that’s the case, then Janet would take Makoto there with her Pegasus and continue his rampages if needed. But idk, Great Sage-sama teleporting and transferring Makoto seems faster, even though he’ll lost some blood again.

    3. Maybe since that was where the main force was predicted to be coming from, so they would rather trust the light hero to deal with it.

    4. Why gambling with Water Country to deal with the supposedly strongest boss when you have the certain-to-win OP light hero?

      The point is, Sun Country underestimate our MC.

    5. Putting their strongest hero in the place with the strongest monster is the most rational decision.

      Makato was able to defeat Geralt in an area without a lot of water. Logically he should be stronger than Geralt even in an area without a lot of water. So they put him defending the area where normally Geralt would defend.

      1. I read back a bit and nowhere does it say that Isaac ever told them that the monsters coming from the ocean are Taboo Monsters. All he says is that he mixed in Taboo Monsters within all the monster mobs. They don’t even say that the monsters coming from the ocean are in greater numbers to justify putting Sakurai there. Furiae’s destiny magic doesn’t say anything about it either. Yet somehow the general knows that the greatest concentration of Taboo Monsters is on the ocean side. That coupled with all the other suspicious things like the 3 other heroes being away on some random mission, both of the Water Heroes being assigned somewhere away from the water where they’d be most effective, putting Makoto in the same group of people that hate his guts for what he did to Geralt and putting Sakurai in a position where he wouldn’t be facing the true main force of the enemy makes it seem like the general and probably other high ups are actively trying to make the Sun Country lose. They may have betrayed the country. We see it often in stories. Some general/military officers or nobles betray their country because the enemy promises them something. Like unlimited power or immortality or whatever. You know the line where the Maou tells somebody to join him and he’ll give them half the world. That sorta thing.

      2. > I read back a bit and nowhere does it say that Isaac ever told them that the monsters coming from the ocean are Taboo Monsters. All he says is that he mixed in Taboo Monsters within all the monster mobs.

        They obviously send some guys over to check. Taboo Monsters are big so they are easy to spot.

    6. To be fair, aside from the hero, their military might is the weakest, and they needed someone to deal with the Taboo Monsters, on top of it seeming like that was the main attack force AND that Geralt wasn’t available, meaning that a whole flank would have been without a Hero at all.

  2. It’s common sense, you put those more proficient around water on the side with more water. But of course they’re mostly glory hogs. Geralt (of not Revia) having a heroic entrance. Wonder how long that will last. He shouldn’t give a pathetic display, his Bro-con sister is watching you know.
    Thank you for the chapter

  3. Thanks for the chapter!

    So, Geralt-dono actually shows up, huh? I think he should have been changed even just for a bit.
    And to think that they are Ancient Monsters, well that’s unexpected. What makes me wonder though, why did RPG skill activated. If his RPG skills activated whenever his choice could make difference in his life, then does it mean that this battle is a death battle? (Well if the fall of Sun Country actually impacts his life then that is). Maybe there’s Ancient Taboo Monster amidst the Monsters crowd? Maybe i’m just overthinking lel

  4. Of course the Old Man Knight would survive a horde of 5000 monsters. He’s made of Indestructium.

    Maybe they should just abandon the Northern Sky Knights? They’re all assholes. At least the other knights with Makoto are treating him normally. Meanwhile I do hope Geralt dies for being a glory hound. He clearly only showed up right now to get all the glory when in fact he’s just a Leeroy Jenkins.

    I wonder about the other locations. Surely this can’t be the only place with 1000 year old ancient monsters.

  5. Thanks for the chapter.
    Their idiocy in positioning Makoto far from the sea brought them luck, how funny.

  6. It’s a shame that the Makoto name’s power of creating lakes on unwitting demand has been lost on Taki-dono. I can only imagine the chaos he could have sewn in the ground-based or sea-based monsters with a little bit of water.

  7. Is Geralt about to die again? Why the heck did they put both WATER HERO’s far from the water?

  8. Thanks for the chapter!!
    Still no sea rampage :\
    Hey at least you can show these assholes why you’re the water hero

  9. You know what I’m thinking?
    Maybe the sun country actually doesn’t know Makoto actually has a really low mana capacity, so they actually don’t think they should have put him near the sea, because it seems most OP mages just generate all the elements they need.

    1. Doesn’t change the fact that each hero is more effective around their element. Just like Sakurai needs the Sun to be truly OP, the water heroes will always be able to exhibit their strongest powers around water.

      1. Remember that Makoto doesn’t have the water hero skill, tho, he’s a water mage titled as hero. It seems that common sense is that strong mages can just will their element into existence because they want to.

  10. I didn’t even notice the water heroes were placed away from the water until the comments pointed it out.

  11. Let us pray that Janet didn’t fall for Makoto after this “event”.

    However, his RPG player skill is really useful huh.
    To be able to show alert of the presence of the ancient breed.

  12. Thanks for the chapter.
    Can’t wait for the next.
    I wonder if Makoto will one day say something like ” the human body is made of sixty percent water ” and starts doing creepy stuff

    1. What?!
      Are u expecting him to freeze some of those water content, in the blood, in the shape of spiky sphere?
      And then pushing those sphere by controlling the fluid in the blood vessels.
      So that when those were moving in the blood circulatory system, it will impose excruciating pain?

      Or r u expecting this makoto will increase the vibration and speed the water particles, which may heat up the human?
      These heat may cause vaporization of those water particles, which will forms bubbles beneath the skins etc.

      Or, r u expecting him to blood-bend the humans like puppet?

      1. You kind of have to expect people would already be putting fireballs inside their enemies sinuses if it was that easy. But yeah, Makoto is under-utilizing his magic control making something as simple as a wall when he could use water current to produce his own version of “Will It Blend?” on ice.

        1. Nah, Leopold demonstrated aptly that they don’t have the sort of control or imagination for such control to make things that precise. Same with the Sage. That’s something that only an otherworlder in Makoto’s position would really be able to get.

    2. Nah, should not be possible. I bet that the owner’s body is protected from direct manipulation by their own mana. So it would be a power struggle with bad odds for succeeding.

    3. Didn’t he already do that with the goblins? Freezing their blood? I wish he used that more often with big monsters, then agian maybe it is because he has to get close and if he messes up he could get splatted by a single swing of the monster limbs so he can only do the blood freezing when he is in Assissin mode. I don’t understnad though why he can’t take control of other water magic water constructs though. with his high level water proficiency surely he could rip control of water spells from other enemies

  13. Thanks for the chapter! It’s crazy seeing the change in comments since I started the series at like 12 chapters in. I used to be the within the first four comments every time and now I have to scroll so far to get to the bottom even half an hour after I get the notification. I’m glad the series is getting more popular.

  14. Just thinking about how magic works as a follow up to my reply to Counter; It occurs to me that a lot of magic cast directly on a person needs some physical medium to pass through. Like charm magic, or Makoto’s water walk. However – he was able to make rain carry the effect of charm dispel. And then there’s the fact that he could hear the voice of the demon lord saved in that artifact, which seems to indicate that was using a water spirit to powered it. Basically, I’m just thinking that water is probably an element uniquely suited to contain or transmit curses.

  15. That was great and after reading all these comments, it would be easiest just to freeze the blood or stop it in the monsters that have blood. Have some mages create a thunderstorm or something. Hell, pull moisture from the ground and air, there was rain right before this battle. I just think he should be more creative with his magic. Thanks for the chapter and I still don’t like cliffs.

  16. lmao
    First, why didn’t they send the Water Heroes to the side containing water?
    Second, why didn’t they confirm the strength of the opposing monsters first? Isn’t that the basics of battle?
    Well, anyways, Geralt is at least definitely a muscle-brain. What other kind of person would jump into a swarm of monsters? Besides suicidal people.

    1. Main reason was probably that they thought the strongest attack would be sent from sea, since Snake Cult believed it would be most vulnerable. So sent Light Hero to counter it.

      Someone also pointed out before that Makoto’s use of water to drown would be useless against aquatic monsters. He made good use of ice here but friction from passing through water would slow ice spears, let alone his signature ice needle. How much of an ice area attack would start affecting water imediately in front of caster before reaching target, catching allies in it?
      Water is really the most difficult environment for most magical & physical attacks to be effective. Except for lightning, but electricity would be conducted to everyone in water. Including allies.

  17. They sure like talking shit at a time like this. Well, Takki is the type to have his actions speak for him, so whatever. Keep underestimating him.
    This time, [RPG Player] legit gave him good intel. I wonder if that’s because it’s Destiny-attribute and this is the upgrade from being Furiae’s guardian?

    Geralt…I can’t say I like him still, but he’ll probably be the hot-blooded headstrong ally. The big hero rescue ended up being more like Leeroy Jenkins, huh?

    A pretty clever tactic, I guess. Throw the visibly scary monsters somewhere so the elite forces can attack from a different angle.

  18. So… Geralt as the lightning hero can use Lightning type magic AND bring rain while doing so? Wouldn’t that be the perfect complement to Makoto?

    I sense this is the start of the ultimate ship. XD

  19. Thanks for the chapter! ^^
    Lets hope peoples will finally understand and calm down about Makoto.
    As people said, Geralt making rain fall may be a blessing in disguise for Makoto and create an unexpected good combo with Geralt going full tsundere or/and rival “What are you doing Water Hero!? I don’t remember you being so weak! Don’t put shame on me by acting like a weakling!”! XD
    As a side note, Prince Leonnerd is looking more and more like a trap or an Hydeyoshi.

    1. Definitely an Hideyoshi at this point but wouldn’t put it past a trap. Still we need more Hideyoshi characters!

  20. Thanks for chap
    Yep the doubts comments raised earlier were all correct ,I thought it was just good planning that mc was sent north but nope~
    Someone is totally trying to sabatoge mc and possibly kill him, using the raid as a disguise .
    My guess is its that Valentine house .they were unnaturally quiet ,geralt was missing. And somehow a water hero placed not at water but with geralt’s knights who obviously hate him? And mysteriously they are surrounded closely by knights as they are ordered to keep him safe??!
    I feel they planned to kill him as soon as the raid is manageable and call it an accident. Thats why they were placed at the weakest enemy and geralt was also hiding there.

  21. It seems Geralt has an attitude of early Motoyasu of Shield bro’s story.
    Maybe, in the future, he will be tamed, and he will call Makoto as his ANIKI for life….

  22. They were lucky to put Makoto in that place, without him it would have taken less than 5 minutes to be exterminated

    Maybe bad planning, but it was perfect, Makoto would have been overpowered at sea but the city would have already fallen

  23. Thanks for the chapter, well this one was exciting, lets see how much can our weakest mage grow from here. Hope Geralt doesn’t bite more that he can chew.

  24. Musclehead to the rescue… or not so much?
    Without checking the situation Gerald (the absentee hero) rushes into fray. Brave? Probably. Thick as brick. Definitely.

  25. ……? Huh? Really?
    Is it really cowardly to want to know what the enemies troops are?
    I can’t believe they didnt even know… Do they not send out something like scouts? PROPER scouts?

    I hope this kingdom just gets crushed.

  26. Oh my Ancient monsters have appeared! Good catch RPG Player. and Geralt makes a crazily heroic entrance… doesn’t mesh well with his prior appearance. Is there more to him than meets the eye? was he originally a brash, loud and outspoken lad who was nevertheless trustworthy but then got twisted? Saying that I kind of want to see that, maybe he had such pressure from family and other nobles that it twisted him inside out. Hey we have already seen that almost all of the Nobles hate one another and are trying to backstab each other, loosing the position as number 1 hero in Highland then having his prospective fiance taken away can’t have been good for his confidence and then his surroundings mocking abd belittling him surely would have worsened that. And what if he got flak from his own family/father with things like “how could you lose and be so pathetic?! You are meant to bring honour and prestige to your family name! You aren pathetic! nothing more than trash!”. Oh could his words from before when he was limping away have actually been directed at himself? Did he call himself trash?

    A lot of people are questioning the whole placing water heroes away from water, or how the sun kingdom somehow expected the ocean to be the main thrust of the attack. From what I can piece together: ORIGINALLY it was thought that the monsters would only be coming from the land, so when they found out monsters would be coming from the ocean (which they hadn’t previously anticipated) they thought that would obviously be the main thrust. By that thinking, the otherwise unexpected area would pose the greatest risk of being exploited, so place the strongest force there to counter possible major dangers. Sakurai is obviously (by currently tested systems) the strongest force, so he was placed there. As for Takki-dono, he did beat Geralt so Yuwein may be anticipating him to be as strong as Geralt. especially as Takki-dono defeated Geralt whilst away from any major body of water. Remebmer Takki-dono was in the Castle’s training grounds some way away from the ocean and yet was still able to create a huge mass of water that if it went out of control would have flooded the city. By that thinking move him away from anywhere that his water attacks could otherwise flood isn’t a bad strategy. let him freely go crazy in a nice wide open plain away from all those houses or wharf’s or boats or likely wharfside warehouses. You know, stuff you find in expensive and economically important ports that you don’t want destroyed by rampaging magic.
