WM – Chapter 137: Takatsuki Makoto is attacked

◇Furiae Laphroaig POV◇

A party was held two days in a row in the homeland of the Mage-san.

It is apparently to welcome the Wind Tree Hero.

(The people of foreign countries all like to make noise, huh.) (Furiae)

In the Moon Country (ruins) I was raised in, it was always silent.

They all had dark expressions, and they were all desperate to just live.

That’s why the noisiness of people was a fresh feeling for me.

I am not used to the noise, but…I don’t hate it.

“Beautiful Princess, want to watch the stars with me?” 

“I have something better -a 100 year wine. I want a woman like you to be the one to drink it.” 

“Hey hey, want to sneak out with this Onee-san here? I will make you feel good.” 

(But the flirting is annoying.) (Furiae)

I am used to having people fall in love with me at first sight regardless of gender, so being flirted at is a daily occurrence. 

The characteristic of a Moon Oracle is that I charm everyone I meet.

Especially the Mage-san’s siblings who are forward when it comes to love.

There’s none who are forceful though.

I wanted to be alone, so I went outside.

“Naa Naa.” 

The black cat Tsui also came along.

Your master isn’t me, you know?

Now that I think about it, where’s My Knight? 

By the time I noticed, he wasn’t there.

I walk through the silent night village.

I only hear the wind and the sound of the insects.

After a while, I saw two people walking over here.

“Oh, Furi, taking a walk? You must not go outside the barrier of the village, okay?” (Lucy)

I met the Mage-san and Warrior-san.

It seems the two were also having a walk.

“It is okay. I can see the range of the barrier.” (Furiae)

I am a mage too to a certain extent.

I can’t use attack magic directly, but I have confidence in my ability to control magic.

“Takatsuki-kun is training just ahead. Good night, Fu-chan.” (Aya)

“I see. Good night, Warrior-san, Mage-san.” (Furiae)

The two left with hands held.

“Hey, Lu-chan, let’s sleep together.” (Aya)

“Fine, but it troubles me that when you are asleep, you tend to take off my clothes.” (Lucy)

“Hehe, Lu-chan’s skin is really smooth so it feels good~.” (Aya)

“Stop it.” (Lucy)

I heard that conversation.

They really get along.

They look really intimate with each other.

(Aren’t those two…love rivals?) (Furiae)

Shouldn’t there normally be more friction when fighting for one man? 

But they are actually like really close friends.

Well, they are in the same party, so if they were to always be fighting, it would be annoying in itself. I prefer them like this…

But when I use Destiny Magic and see the Fate Threads of those two…they are all twisted into a sloppy mess.

Most of those threads are connected to Takatsuki Makoto.

(My Knight is loved…) (Furiae)

To a scary extent.

Or more like, the love of those two is quite heavy.

I am slightly worried that he might one day get stabbed.

I don’t know how much the person himself understands though.

He is always making a dumb face.

I walked for a while, and a thick mana coiled around my feet.

(This mana is…) (Furiae)

I follow the source of that flow of mana.

At a place slightly open at the ends of the village…

My Knight was there, calling the Spirits while bathing in the moonlight.

Looks like he is training.

I could see his serious profile.

(He is my Guardian Knight, right…?) (Furiae)

Am I not always abandoned? 

No, it is not like I want him to always be by my side though…

There hasn’t been a man who has left me alone to this extent in my whole life.

“Hey, My Knight.” (Furiae)

I felt bad for bothering him, but Takatsuki Makoto apparently stays several hours in concentration when he begins training, so I called him.

But he answered without even turning around…

At least look over here when responding.

After a while of harmless talk…

(Eh?) 

I felt hostility.

A dark shadow suddenly rushed over here.

The one targeted is…My Knight?

“Watch out!” (Furiae)

I pushed Takatsuki Makoto away.

Right after that, the claws of the dark shadow cut through the air.

Takatsuki Makoto soon stood up from the ground.

I could see Tsui running into the forest.

How shrewd.

“That was close… You saved me there, Princess.” (Makoto)

“Why am I the one saving my knight… Are you okay?” (Furiae)

“Yeah, thanks to you.” (Makoto)

We look at the place where the one who attacked us is.

“…Tch, missed, huh.” 

A black haired red eyed demon beauty.

But her body was burned here and there, and she had injuries in her whole body.

The woman that’s the confidant of the Immortal King Bifrons, Shuri.

“Eh? Weren’t you defeated by Rosalie-san?” (Makoto)

“Looks like she didn’t.” (Furiae)

This is unlucky.

We have encountered a problematic opponent. 

The barrier of the village doesn’t work on a High Demon.

The ones here are the Moon Oracle, who has no combat capability, and the Moon Oracle’s Guardian Knight that isn’t that strong.

(If only my destiny magic could tell me of dangers like this one…) (Furiae)

Sadly, my Future Vision is random, and I can only see big events.

It is outside my control.

The high ranked demon woman in front of us is releasing dark miasma and watching us as if appraising us.

“That problematic witch isn’t here… I will top myself up by eating you.” (Shuri)

Figures that would be the case!

This woman is a vampire.

She is a predator, and we are the prey.

Shuri closes in on us impatiently.

“My Knight! We are running away!” (Furiae)

I pull the hand of Takatsuki Makoto.

“That’s most likely impossible.” (Makoto)

“It is pointless.” (Shuri)

For some reason, Takatsuki Makoto and Shuri’s voices overlap.

“We were captured with bind magic.” (Makoto)

“…No way…since when? I…can’t move.” (Furiae)

It is true that there’s a small barrier around us.

And my legs were fixed in place! 

By the time I noticed, the legs of both of us were wrapped by some sort of shadow.

“It is the bind magic we used in the past to capture humans, Shadow Prison. Food should stay silent and be eaten.” (Shuri)

Shuri gets closer with a cruel smile.

Her mouth opened wide and sharp fangs were visible.

“I will suck out all your blood while you are still conscious… Fear. That will give even more flavor to your blood.” (Shuri)

“Tch!” (Furiae)

I clicked my tongue.

What a terrible personality.

She has received a lot of damage from the fight before, but the pressure I can feel from her is still as strong as ever.

Cold sweat flows down.

What other move can we take…? Something…

She was slowly approaching us.

Now! 

[Charm Eyes]!

I used my trump card, the Charm magic eyes.

It is the most effective under a full moon, but if it is under a moon with this much light, it should work!

But…

“Too bad. It doesn’t work on me.” (Shuri)

But Shuri’s reaction was a cold one.

“No…way…” (Furiae)

“We were reborn by our great lord. We are existences above you people. There’s no way the charm of lower beings would work, right?” (Shuri)

The belittling tone of Shuri made me bite my lips. 

“Even so, those eyes…could it be that you are the Moon Oracle?” (Shuri)

“…What if I am?” (Furiae)

“Hmm, that slut that our great lord took in 1,000 years ago has now turned to the side of the humans, huh. You really are a woman without any morals.” (Shuri)

“That’s a different person!” (Furiae)

It annoys me.

The Moon Oracle 1,000 years ago has nothing to do with me.

Every single one! 

“For a mere human, being taken in by our great lord was truly an eyesore. I will have you die here.” (Shuri)

Shuri raised her arm and black miasma gathered in that hand of hers. 

(What should I do…?) (Furiae)

My Knight that’s still holding my hand and hasn’t said anything is also annoying me.

Shuri seems to not have any interest in Takatsuki Makoto who has meager mana, she doesn’t even talk to him.

Don’t you have any plans?! 

“Hey, My Kn—” (Furiae)

“Princess, excuse me.” (Makoto)

Suddenly, Takatsuki Makoto holds my hand tightly.

“Hey, what are you…it is kinda ticklish?” (Furiae)

“I synchronized with you.” (Makoto)

The moment Takatsuki Makoto said this.

*Zushin*

Thick mana appeared.

“W-What?” (Shuri)

Shuri made a dubious expression.

I am probably making that same face.

I still feel the same weak mana from Takatsuki Makoto.

But the mana swirling around him is something that can’t be ignored.

“…Aah, so that’s where you were, Great Water Spirit, Undine.” (Makoto)

Takatsuki Makoto’s nonchalant tone rang.

(…There’s something there?) (Furiae)

I don’t see anything.

But there certainly is something.

If it is just as Takatsuki Makoto said, it is the Great Water Spirit, Undine.

Shuri began to show caution towards My Knight.

“Spirit Magic, huh… That’s problematic. I will have you both die together.” (Shuri)

A giant claw appeared on the hand of the approaching Shuri, with the intent of lopping off our heads, but…

Water Magic: [Water Prison].” (Makoto) 

All of us were suddenly covered by water.

(Eeeeeh?!) (Furiae)

I-I can’t breathe…eh? It isn’t painful.

“…What’s…this?” (Shuri)

Even though we were in the water, we could still hear Shuri.

“What’s this, My Knight?” (Furiae)

I could speak normally even in the water.

What is going on?

“Oi oi…Undine-san, I did say that I wanted to use water, but this is too much… I hope the water hasn’t reached the house of Lucy.” (Makoto)

Takatsuki Makoto ignores us two and talks with ‘someone’.

Hey, can you please answer?

“You bastard!” (Shuri)

Shuri must have gotten angered being ignored, she tried to move her arm and…

“…Impossible.” (Shuri)

It looks like she can’t move.

The water had taken away her freedom of movement.

Takatsuki Makoto is talking with someone inside the water -unchanging.

What’s with this surreal situation?

“As expected of Undine-san. A High Demon not being able to move a single finger. Well, I can’t move with Shadow Prison either, so we are both in the same state, haha!” (Makoto)

“What are you laughing at?!” (Furiae)

I ended up retorting.

Why is Takatsuki Makoto so lacking in tension?! 

Are you an idiot?! You are going to die!

“Princess?” (Makoto)

“Don’t make a dumbfounded face. Defeat her!” (Furiae)

“But no one can move though?” (Makoto)

‘Won’t someone save us eventually?’, he says casually.

Hearing this, the expression of Shuri distorts.

“Ha! Human mage, that’s impressive mana, but you can’t defeat me with water magic! You won’t be able to defeat an undead like me ever! You are food for us demons! Food should tremble like the food they are and be eaten!” (Shuri)

The statement of the arrogant demon asserted that we are destined to be ruled over.

At the same time, the miasma Shuri was releasing got stronger.

She still had more power hidden?

She is trying to move her body bit by bit.

This woman…she can move even within the Water Prison made from the power of a Great Spirit?

“Hey, My Knight, isn’t this bad?” (Furiae)

I got flustered and pulled the arm of Takatsuki Makoto.

“Aah, it would be troubling if we were to get eaten. Let’s finish it.” (Makoto)

“Eh?”

A calm voice that made me question whether I actually heard right.

“Ha! Finish me, you say? Anything you do is pointless!” (Shuri)

Shuri seems to have definite confidence in herself as an undead, she laughed off the words of Takatsuki Makoto.

My Knight didn’t say anything.

He unsheathed a beautifully ornated dagger.

The blue blade shines majestically as mana wrapped around it.

A divine protection to defeat undead…it doesn’t seem to have one.

It is a simple magic sword.

The expression of Shuri stayed bold as always.

Takatsuki Makoto holds the dagger in both hands, and makes a pose as if praying.

And then, he mutters one thing.

“I offer it to you, Water Goddess, Eir-sama.” (Makoto)

(Eh?) (Furiae)

I question the words of Takatsuki Makoto.

Weren’t you the believer of an Old God?

That’s the name of a Holy God though?

At that moment, even though it was night, a light shone on the dagger.

*Zu Zu Zu*

The water around us begins to form humanoid shapes.

Those humanoid water masses let out light, clad themselves in mana, and compressed it.

Their figures floating in the water resembled that of a baby. 

No, it wasn’t just their shape.

They had eyes and a mouth.

The eyes were swimming around.

Small naked babies laughing going ‘kya kya!’.

It was a surreal sight.

It was as if life was being formed inside the water.

Those babies had small cute wings. 

(Those small children…they are the Tenth Seat of the God Subordinates: Angels…?) (Furiae)

W-Why?

My Knight should be following an Old God…

Angels should be under the Holy Gods, the Olympians, that rule over the Divine Realm.

There’s no way Angels would show up…

“W-Why are you…?! Stay away from me!” (Shuri)

Shuri shouts flustered.

She must have felt that this has turned into a bad situation.

“[Snipe].” (Makoto)

Takatsuki Makoto throws his daggers and it pierces the chest of Shuri.

“What?” (Shuri)

Isn’t a normal weapon useless against an undead…?

It looks like she also thought the same. She opened her mouth in disbelief.

“Ha! To think you would try to defeat me with such a small weapon like this…” (Shuri)

Takatsuki Makoto looked like he already had no interest in her.

It was as if he were just moving in predetermined steps.

He stated indifferently.

“[Sacrificial Technique: Offering].” (Makoto)

The moment Takatsuki Makoto voiced this…

The small and cute angels flew onto the demon, and began to eat the demon’s body.

“GYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!” 

A scream that made my hairs stand and the raw sound of chewing resonate.

“G-Get away from me! Don’t eat me!” (Shuri)

Opposite to the screams of Shuri, the cute angels were devouring the body of the demon.

Black blood gushed out, the nerves were cut, and a terrifying sound of bones being crushed rang.

Seeing that gruesome sight…

“Uwaaah…” (Makoto)

Takatsuki Makoto’s expression turned into one of discomfort and he looked away from that.

(Y-You are the one who did it though!) (Furiae)

But I couldn’t speak out anything in front of that horrifying sight.

As the Moon Oracle, I am not shaken by just anything, and yet…

The Moon Oracle uses death, darkness, and curses.

There’s a lot of cruel ones within the magic books in regards to death magic.

I have been learning from those kinds of books, and have gained quite the mental resilience, but…

I could only watch and tremble at the sight in front of me.

“Princess, are you okay?” (Makoto)

Takatsuki Makoto’s voice was unchanging.

Why can he keep such a casual expression?! 

I nod lightly.

“Great Spirit-san, thanks. It is okay now.” (Makoto)

Releasing the Water Prison binding Shuri, Takatsuki Makoto gave his thanks to the Spirit in Spirit Language.

Shuri was being eaten by the Angels at the side.

When I look closely, it is not only her body that’s being eaten.

(Mana? …No, it feels as if her soul itself is being eaten…) (Furiae)

Normally, the only way to defeat an undead is to ‘purify’ them with holy magic…

The Fate Threads connecting Shuri were being cut one after the other.

Them being cut means…the end.

Her fate ends here.

“…Sa…Save me…my Lord…” (Shuri)

I couldn’t properly pick up the words of the demon woman that had most of her body already eaten.

With that pitiful voice being the last she could let out, she perished.

At the same time, the Angels laughed ‘kya kya’ as they disappeared.

The dredges of that high ranked demon that let out such overpowering pressure crumbled like sand.

The wind blew those dredges away like ashes.

They danced in the air.

The remains of what was once a Demon Lord Confidant…disappeared without a trace.

As if she didn’t exist in the first place.

Only the dagger that My Knight threw remained at that place.

“‘The only ones allowed to eat, are the ones that are prepared to be eaten’…is what someone said, I think?” (Makoto)

My Knight said something as he walked towards his dagger and picked it up.

I didn’t understand the meaning of his words.

I was scared.

Takatsuki Makoto has his back facing me.

That’s why I couldn’t see the face of the person that caused this.

What kind of face am I making? I was scared of knowing.

“I am glad that I could defeat it.” (Makoto)

That voice of his was peaceful.

The voice he always uses when talking with the Mage-san and Warrior-san.

Takatsuki Makoto turned around and his face was kind.

That expression of his smiling lightly…looked innocent like that of a fiend.

    1. This is probably the new technique Eir taugth him, so maybe he got some extra years for lifespam. I think he was actually disgusted at the sight, he had a disconfort expretion after all, but he problably looked at his status window and was smiling at that.

      Liked by 4 people

      1. I think it is that technique, but it is way darker than that, he made an offering for the sacrificial technique via the dagger, and what was offered was the soul being pierced by the dagger… so he fueled the spell to extinguish the soul by using that same soul as payment.

      2. yeah, definitely, but one that the player not aware that it not a game and his action affect people in both good and bad way, just like how Furiae is now afraid of him here, like how he did it yet unaware oh what he truly did, and no better quote than the one at the end to prove exactly that “That expression of his smiling lightly…looked innocent like that of a fiend.” i think Hibiki in Tsuki ga, had a similar impression of Makoto when they talk in Limia, they are both dangerously unaware of their power and action to some extend, like how in a way they both treat life lightly in a way, like how Takatsuki don’t value life much cause it look to similar to a game and Makoto view it lightly cause of his own experience but both value the life of those close to them very highly, like one where to badly hurt Lucy or Mio for exemple they will just mentally break down going on rampage. this comment is going a little too long but yeah that pretty much my view of Takatsuki.

  2. Oh boy that was brutal… Think about being killed by cute pirahnas…

    Btw why it dint became lewd when makoto sync with Furiae? Is it because she has more mana than the others, that’s why she’s only ticklish and no groping happening?

    And i agree with Furiae that makoto is way scarier than the high demon for sure… Who could non-chalantly kill someone brutally but looks like some who have only watched a gore movie?

    Cant wait for next chapter to know how makoto able to use Saint magic!

    Thank you for this chapter!

    1. It only provides pleasure when the magic is similar and one of the users has a high proficiency in it. Chapter 120 below

      “Right right, Mako-kun, one warning though. When you seriously synchronize with a water mage with your Water Proficiency, there’s side-effects as well, so try to keep it at a minimum from now on, okay?” (Eir)

      “Side-effects?” (Makoto)

      “When synchronizing, you mix your mana with the other party temporarily, but with your proficiency, it mixes too much and ends up ‘feeling good’. This time around, it worked double as effectively with Charm Magic.” (Eir)

      1. I think Lucy was a Great mage or something (a ‘Sage’ maybe) that’s why she has all kind of elemental proficiency, she only has fire attribute so far i think because (1) Her mother teaches her (2) She has Fire monarch at the very beginning and earth magic because the Titan God gifted(upgrade) her earth attribute staff.

        Liked by 1 person

      2. Lucy has three skills displayed in chapter 10-11.

        Fire [Monarch Rank], Great Sage/mage, and Spirit User.

        Great sage gives Lucy aptitude for Fire, Water, Wood, and Earth. Lucy trained fire all her life and recently started practicing earth magic. Her other skills beside fire is probably intermediate rank at least. Lucy has water attribute and spirit user which are compatible with Makoto.

        I am not sure where some people are getting the all attribute trait for Lucy, when Rosalie probably doesn’t even have that.

        Like

    2. As to why it didn’t become lewd is probably because Makoto doesn’t do anything big with their synchronization. When syncing with Sofia, the intensity of what she felt was proportionate to the magic Makoto used. Here Makoto seems to only use Furi’s Charm magic to get Undine to help, so nothing particularly strenuous.

    1. Considering how he said “So that’s where you were.” makes it sound like she’s always in the same place around him, is she always right behind or next to him or something? Would be pretty funny

        Liked by 2 people

      2. I think its more likely that Undine is stalking him and he lacks the 1000 water proficiency to see her like Noah said. But he could bypass the requirements by synchro with Furiae that has monarch rank charm to bring Undine out.

        I guess this is the answer to the what if Makoto synched with Furiae instead of Lucy.

  4. Thanks for the chapter~

    Damn Makoto, when did you start to become brutal like that
    It seems there’s really nothing happening when Makoto synced with Furiae, huh? Very unfortunate ;-;

    For a brief second there, i thought that when Shuri said she wanted to take Makoto’s blood, he’ll try to sync with her but i recalled that she’s an undead so, will it work? Was it mentioned already in the other chapter? Well, idk

    Ah right, about the perspective thingy. It lets Makoto to see the world like a player playing an RPG game, right? Could he, change his perspective somewhere else, Like viewing the map in game, and then casting magic there, so he could become an Isekai Sniper xD

    1. Unfortunately, they are not similar at all. Rosalie takes pleasure to fight and kill demons, but Makoto seems completely apathetic when he kills demons or monsters. It is like he is killing a mosquito. It makes him thousand more times terrifying than Rosalie. When he said “The only ones allowed to eat, are the ones that are prepared to be eaten”, it makes me remember of Misumi Makoto who doesn’t seem to give a lot of value to the life of people in general.

      1. Was referring more to how his figure overlaps with Rosalie’s on the chapter she was fighting Shuri, at the end of said chapter it was from a different perspective but there are similarities, Rosalie enjoying the fight and later changing gears after the battle is over and Makoto being calm dealing with Shuri then smiling after everything is over

      1. It looks like he did both? He offered a sacrifice of himself to summon the freaky little water magic piranha putti, and then he stuck her with the dagger (to act as a divine / life force conduit?) Maybe he can just skip that first step for weaker enemies and just go straight through stab>offering>kill.

    2. He said Sacrificial Magic : Offering (or something like that) and stabbed Shuri with his dagger so i think the one that is being offered is Shuri, and not his blood so in my opinion he’s safe

  5. Congratulations on being able to traumatize the oracle of the goddess of death… She’s a necromancer, likes graveyards, has a history of seeing her entourage slaughtered and herself abducted by the ‘good guys’ and it took our MC to give her a trauma. While not even being hostile to her. Good job 😀

  10. Damn it, Rosalie shouldn’t you have made sure Shuri was dead in the first place?

    Looks like Furi is slowly starting to fall for Makoto. Previously when they synced nothing happened yet now she says she felt a ticklish feeling. I assume that for the sync to feel good then both people need something in common and to at least have positive feelings and probably the more deep those feelings are then the more intense the sync will feel.

    So I guess Undine was following around Makoto and he just couldn’t see her since didn’t they say he needs like 1000 magic proficiency to see her normally and thus why he needed to sync with Furi to use Charm Magic to charm Undine and lower the proficiency requirements? Now that Makoto has synced with Furi again, the conditions have been replicated so he can see Undine again. Also apparently he managed to learn how to summon angels on his own after seeing Rosalie do it once. Plus we now know exactly what skill Eir taught him. A sacrifice skill to forcibly offer someone’s existence to I presume Eir. Makoto probably gains a certain amount of the target’s lifespan in exchange for offering the majority to Eir.

    Well I can understand that it’s scary for Furi to see what happened and how calm Makoto was like he’s a sociopath but it’s all because of his RPG Player skill. He’s seeing this from an outside perspective like it’s a cutscene. Like none of us would be sick, terrified, or balk if we committed mass murder in something like Skyrim or GTA. It’s basically the same thing for Makoto.

    1. The hole in that first theory is that Sophia had no feelings for Makoto during their first synch. More likely is that Furi’s moon magic proficiency is high enough to nearly match Makoto’s adjusted (water EF -100) moon element proficiency.

      1. Noah explained that his high water proficiency makes his synchronization feel good to a water magic user. It feels good but not as good for Undine because her power is so deep Makoto can’t get full penetration, yet.
        The only other one that got off on syncing was Lucy… because she IS getting it on. Has nothing to do with the synchronizing, lol.

    2. I think he needs to be drawing a lot of their mana, they have to feel him reaching in deep, and he only needed a bit more power than usual from Furi. So she felt a tickle this time, maybe next battle he’ll try something wide range again, or he will add his proficiency to something she casts, like controlling undead.

    3. Yeah, I think Eir confirmed that it’s to do with proficiency of the element between the users mostly.

      Furiae didn’t feel much the first time because Takki had scrub level proficiency when they synced, and it was possibly more water-focused. This is after like a month of grinding AND the first Undine incident, so the gap’s closing a bit more.

  11. Thanks for the chapter! And I know I said I wanted to see a cool scene where Makoto summons an angel to overwhelmingly crush a demon, but this is not what I was expecting. Honestly, it was even more chilling than I could have imagined and I loved every second of it! And to be able to smile even after all that would really creepy anyone out, also instead of innocence, what I would have used to describe Makoto would be more indifference since the way it was described made me imagine Makoto having the same eyes he has when he was exterminating goblins~ I really love this novel and can’t wait for what’s next~!

  12. I really feel like Rosalie should have caught that she was playing dead or just hiding…
    Unless this was her plan to see how he reacts…
    Also this reminds me of when Tsuki-Makoto was revealed to be pure-white with something peeking out of a crack.

  13. I am guessing that Undine was inside Fu-chan and THAT is why she was a synchronization choice from the RPG skill back at Makkaren when he instead chose Lucy.

    1. Now I remembered how Eris told Makoto of new way to have longer life span. It’s probably by sacrificing living being in her name by using blessed dagger.

  14. Thanks for the chapter
    Undine stalked Makoto since at least the epilogue of volume 3.

    It is neither a hero that fight for justice
    Nor a n anvenger lust for revente
    It is an apathic killer doing his job without feeling anything for it.

    Syncho :
    With Lucy : endless fire ball spamming
    With Sofia or Leonard : monarch water spell spamming
    With Furiae : monarch charm spell
    With Undine : saint water spell spamming

    Shit. Are Aya and Lucy yandere? If so, Makoto is fucked.

    That’s a really brutal skill and good thing only Furi that witness it. I can’t imagine if Aya and Lucy and her family witness a cute baby eating a demon alive.

    But yea, MC looked like the bad guy when he used that kind of magic.

  18. I don’t know why but after reading this chapter the first thought that came to me was: how will Makoto eat Lucy & Aya in lewd way of course… (second thought: he will probably be plying with them with his expressionless face, slowly licking their sweat…R18 version)
    Thanks for translation!

      1. Hmmm, now this pose a question if Makoto can control water inside living organisms (especially women) or how much proficiency he needs to be able to control it…

  19. Just wondering, considering the amount of monsters(just the first summon of undone and the kiss with Lucy should make him immortal by normal) and this high level demon he has killed, shouldn’t his level be sky high by now

  20. This scene, was better to be a cut scene in PS4, or PS5… The effects, the brutality, the calm expression of MC, and the god level beauty of Furi san will be much appreciated.

    Just take a look at Velvet-san of Tales of Berseria. She looks like Furi in a savage way, but being adorn with most of of the fans of the series… Just why, because she was that cute and her feelings are straightforward that it cause the fans to understand her better and better.

  22. Thanks for the chapter! ^^
    I really do love this chapter! XD
    The princess saving the knight, Furiae reaaction to his love life, and the finale with the gruesome death of the demon!
    Being eaten alive by baby angels is creepy as hell with the devil’s smile (maybe Sebastian’s style from Black Butler? x) ) for the finishing touch. ^^
    And that’s some nasty way to gather lifespan that Eir taught him.
    Can’t wait for the next chapter! XD

  23. ….Well. Holy shit. That is certainly an ace in the whole, and presumably a sneaky trick for Sacrificial Magic. In essence, you’re still sacrificing life, but you’ll just sacrifice your enemy’s, right? That is horrifying.

    She can’t exactly complain about being eaten alive when she was ranting about how lesser beings should obediently be devoured by stronger ones in fear. Quite the nice irony.

    Double-tap properly, Rosalie! And to begin with, you should’ve done it, Saviour Abel!

    Poor Furiae-san is still trying to cling to common sense. Nothing much has changed on that front for me. I still want her to open up and make friends, still don’t want her to fall for Takki, and still happy that she can provide insight into Lucy and Sa-san’s relationship with Takki.
    …though apparently they have slight Yan-vibes now? That’s…scary.

  24. So that’s what Eir told him to increase his lifespan? Seems legit, probably not even Shuri will be able to regenerate from that. And he does this all detachedly, that’s definitely going to unnerve some people.

    Hmm the dark side of rpg player makes him inhumane to the point of scariness.
    So he offers other’s souls as sacrifices huh.

  27. A la verga, that was impressive (sorry, I don’t know how to expressmy feel in english). Furiae still is a mystery to me (regards if she will fall in love with Makoto), but at least seems like she really feel at least a little of fear to him. I want to know what Furiae see and think when Makoto have options with RPG Player, that is still unknow to us.

  28. Thank you for the awesome chapter Reigokai!

    So Rosalie couldn’t defeat Shuri even when using a powerful Angel but Takki-dono could. I think this reflects their personalities so much. Rosalie fights for the battle, Takki-dono fights for the victory. One takes pleasure in the journey, the other derives satisfaction from the conclusion. And both are utterly crazy!

    Would like to see the talk between Takki-dono and Undine.And his cool headedness. He seriously does just set a goal and pursue it ceaselessly. I swear that innocence like that of a fiends sounds utterly scary and utterly awesome! Everyone best pray Takki-dono doesn’t pursue the Great Demon Lord route- wait… as an Apostle of an Old God, seeking to turn over the rules of the world wouldn’t that sort of already mean his is progressing along the route of Demon Lord?
