WM – Chapter 152: Takatsuki Makoto gets attacked

“Now, let’s kill each other.” 

This exotic brown skinned beauty made a crazy statement from the onset.

From her body, there’s an orange colored Aura wafting from her.

(The Scorching Hero…Olga Sol Tariska. The Fire Goddess’s Hero…) (Makoto)

Our objective is to meet the Hero and Oracle of Great Keith. In that sense, it does match with our objective.

However, the Hero in battle stance in front of my eyes doesn’t look like someone I can have a reasonable talk with.

“?!” 

By the time I noticed, the fist of the Scorching Hero was approaching.

Crap! 

(E-[Evade]!) (Makoto)

I just barely…can’t evade it! 

I felt an impact from around my shoulder and was sent flying.

Ouch…

“Takatsuki-kun!” (Aya)

Sa-san’s voice reverberates.

“Oh…? It hit?” (Olga)

The Scorching Hero Olga tilted her head cutely.

You punched me! 

“You! What are you doing?!” (Aya)

Sa-san attacked the Fire Hero.

“Woah, that surprised me.” (Olga)

She is saying she is surprised, but she dealt with the attacks of Sa-san without getting flustered at all.

Seriously? The physical attacks of Sa-san are not working?! 

“Kuh!” (Aya)

I can see the agitated expression Sa-san.

[Water Magic: Ice Needle].

I aim for a blinding attack to assist Sa-san.

Without any Water Spirits, this is my limit! 

“Hm?” (Olga)

She evaded it so naturally! 

I activated it right in her eyes, and yet…she managed to evade it the very moment she saw it?

“Annoying.” (Olga)

“Guh!” (Makoto)

She had been attacked by Sa-san for a while now, but she is somehow in front of me.

[Evade]! 

“Geho!” (Makoto)

A heavy impact resonates in my stomach.

I can’t evade at all?! 

She is doing follow-up attacks the moment she sees the Evade activating.

“What are you doing to Takatsuki-kun?!” (Aya)

Sa-san uses the Action Player’s Dash Attack.

“Heeh…you are cute, yet strong.” (Olga)

The Fire Hero easily evaded it and countered her.

“Aguh!” (Aya)

Sa-san was sent flying! 

She crashed into the wall of a house nearby.

“Aya!” (Lucy)

I hear the scream of Lucy.

Damn it, what’s with this monster?! 

Is Sa-san okay?

“Oi, what’s going on, what’s going on?” “Olga-sama is going wild.” “Again? Who is she fighting with this time?” 

The people who heard the ruckus were gathering.

What. Is this a custom?

“Stop it, Hero Olga!” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia’s sharp voice reverberated.

The movements of the Fire Hero stopped cleanly.

“Hm~? Eh, it is Sofia-chan~.” (Olga)

The Fire Hero waves her hand with a smile.

“Olga! What are you thinking?! Attacking my country’s Hero and his comrade!” (Sofia)

“It was just a bit of a greeting~.” (Olga)

She had a frivolous expression and doesn’t look apologetic at all.

(…Why did we get in this mess right as we entered this country?) (Makoto)

She was targeting the Water Country’s Hero blatantly.

“My expectations were high after I heard that he defeated a Demon Lord and Geralt though~. Haah~, such a disappointment. See ya~.” (Olga)

Narrowing her eyes as if glancing at me from above, she laughed first before leaving. With a single jump, she disappeared somewhere else.

“What’s with that woman…” (Furiae)

Furiae-san was hiding in the shadows all scared.

Sorry, even though I am your Guardian Knight, I forgot about you.

“Sa-san!” (Makoto)

I hurriedly run towards the place where Sa-san was sent flying off to.

Lucy is looking after Sa-san.

It doesn’t look like she is seriously injured…

Sa-san looked at me and said…

“Sorry, Takatsuki-kun… I lost.” (Aya)

“No, that woman was a loony.” (Makoto)

There’s no need for Sa-san to be bothered by it.

I am glad she is okay.

“Hero Makoto, people are gathering. Let’s first move to a place where we can rest.” (Sofia)

“Right. We have to let Sa-san rest.” (Makoto)

We return to the inn with quick steps.

We arrived at the inn, and the Guardian Knight Old Man, Princess Sofia, and I gathered at a big room.

The battle of just now must have been a shock for Sa-san, she has shut herself in her room.

Lucy and Furiae-san are trying to console her.

(I should check on her state later…) (Makoto)

“Hero Makoto…I am sorry. I have submitted a complaint in regards to the rude act of the Fire Hero.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia’s shoulders were trembling.

It was irritating for me as well, but it seems like Princess Sofia’s anger is even higher than that.

I set Clear Mind at 99% and speak.

“What’s the deal with the Fire Hero suddenly attacking us?” (Makoto)

She clearly attacked us knowing that we came here.

This is definitely not something you do towards a country’s Hero with the princess present. 

“This time’s attack…the higher ups of Great Keith might be involved in it.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia looks down as she mutters this.

“Eh?” (Makoto)

The higher ups of Great Keith?

What’s with that?

“Hero-dono, Great Keith is the second biggest country… This is just a possibility, but Great Keith most likely doesn’t find it pleasing that the Water Country has defeated a Demon Lord. The weakest of the six countries, Rozes, stole the march and managed to obtain the achievement of defeating a Demon Lord. This is thought of as damaging the reputation of the second strongest country.” 

The Guardian Knight Old Man said vexed.

“Great Keith has apologized for the rudeness of their Hero… However, for some reason, there’s a rumor going around saying: ‘the Water Country’s Hero, Makoto, was no match for the Fire Country’s Hero, Olga. Him defeating the Demon Lord was just purely luck’. That rumor must have been spread by someone from Great Keith.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia bites her lips.

“Then, me losing must have been bad for Rozes itself…” (Makoto)

That’s bad.

But in that place that had no Water Spirits, there was mostly nothing I could do.

“N-No! It is not like the achievement of stopping the revival of a Demon Lord is gone!” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia hurriedly follows up.

“That’s right, Hero-dono. Also, Princess Noel has been widely stating numerous times that she is in good relations with Rozes. That must have greatly influenced the reason as to why Great Keith came out doing such a violent action like this.” 

“Highland and Great Keith have been contending in the militaristic standing. They must have gotten flustered at the Water Country jumping into their midst.” (Sofia)

“Haah, that sounds complicated…” (Makoto)

A mess between countries, huh. 

That’s complicated stuff for a regular person like me.

Well, it has nothing to do with me.

I will just do my job as a Hero.

“Hero-dono, I will say this just in case, but I think one of the reasons why Princess Noel is incredibly good willed towards us is because Makoto-dono is a close friend of the Light Hero, Sakurai-sama.” 

“Hm?” (Makoto)

I quiver at the words of the Guardian Knight Old Man.

“Hero Makoto…are you thinking this has nothing to do with you? The relationship between you two is already well known around the six countries, you know?” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia sighs amazed.

Eeeh…No, it is true that we have known each other since childhood, but…

“Even so, I didn’t expect that would bring a situation like this… I am sorry. We shouldn’t have come to Great Keith… Let’s return to Rozes at once.” (Sofia)

“No no no, you have done nothing wrong, Sofia. The one at fault is the Fire Country’s people.” (Makoto)

I hurriedly tried to comfort Princess Sofia who was feeling down.

“Also, if we were to leave immediately, it would look like we ran away. That wouldn’t leave a good image. We already came here, so we have to bring something back.” (Makoto)

That’s just a pretext. The truth is that I am pissed by the Fire Hero suddenly attacking us and making Sa-san feel down.

Going back like this would not appease me.

“…Understood. But please stay put in the inn for a while please.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia probably knows how I am feeling. 

I nod obediently.

I am not thinking about suddenly getting back at her.

First is gathering information. Also…

(I am tired… I should sleep after checking at Sa-san.) (Makoto)

I went to the room of Sa-san, but it seemed like she was already asleep, so I couldn’t talk with her.

◇◇

The next day.

“Takki-dono! I heard that you fought Olga-dono and ended up heavily injured!” 

“Takatsuki-sama! Are you hurt?! I have brought the most powerful potion of all, an Elixir! Please drink it quickly!” 

Fuji-yan and Nina-san enter the room with outstanding vigor. 

E-Eh?

Isn’t the story getting embellished?

“Fuji-yan, no one’s injured.” (Makoto)

If I remember correctly, an Elixir costs around 1,000,000G.

So it is medicine you have to drink…

I am a bit interested in the taste.

“Ooh…I came flying here after hearing about Takki-dono losing consciousness and being seriously ill. So that was fake information… That’s a relief…” (Fuji)

“Yeah, they are throwing rumors as they please.” (Makoto)

Is this also the work of Great Keith?

It really pisses me off.

I feel bad for worrying even Fuji-yan and Nina-san.

I explain the situation to them.

The relationship between the Sun Country and the Water Country, huh. 

“I see… The Sun Country and the Water Country’s relationship. It is true that Highland has the reincarnation of the Savior, and Rozes has the Hero that defeated a Demon Lord and is the talk of the people right now; for other countries, that must be a threat.” (Fuji)

“…The talk of the people?” (Makoto)

I furrow my brows at the words of Fuji-yan.

“Oh? You didn’t know? Appearing gallantly in Spring Log, and together with the Crimson Witch-sama, the Hero saved them from peril. It is all talk about you, Takki-dono-desu zo.” (Fuji)

Oi oi, this one here is also embellished.

I got turned to stone and was bedridden at the end, you know?

“Moreover, the information is coming from the Wood Country that normally doesn’t show interest in other countries. It is talked around between merchants as a highly trustworthy rumor.” (Nina)

Nina-san adds while her ears go up and down.

(I didn’t know at all…) (Makoto)

I haven’t spoken with Fuji-yan lately, so I was lacking information. 

I should pay more attention in the information gathering department. 

After that, we shared information, and then, Fuji-yan stayed in the room, while Nina-san left to check the state of Sa-san.

◇◇

“That must have been rough.” (Fuji)

“Yeah.” (Makoto)

Fuji-yan earnestly mutters.

We were drinking the tea that Nina-san prepared while we had our conversation.

I reported about the recent state of things first.

After that, we were having a casual talk.

A while later, I suddenly felt something strange from the face of my friend I haven’t seen in a while.

He must have hurriedly come to the capital of the Fire Country. 

I thought it was probably because of the fatigue from the long journey, but his state was different from usual. 

“Now that I think about it, you said that you had business here in Great Keith. What business?” (Makoto)

“That’s…it is just a business discussion.” (Fuji)

He is hiding something.

He would normally tell me in more detail.

“Is something troubling you?” (Makoto)

“…” 

“I am not forcing you to tell me.” (Makoto)

Did I trouble him there?

“No…it is not really a secret or anything though.” (Fuji)

What is it?

He hesitated for a while.

I silently waited for his next words.

And then, Fuji-yan said in a low voice.

“Actually…it seems a classmate of ours is being held in the capital as a slave.” (Fuji)

Aah, so that’s what it was…

    Well, for some reason, I’m expecting the Scorching Hero to end up being a loli and entering Makoto’s harem though…

    Second off: I know that like, hurting the other heroes is BAD but
    They can heal a blinding right? Blind her Makoto, Blind her and break her The desert may be dry but human are just water with extra ingredients.
    And third, super interesting development! I wonder if they deserve it.

  3. Thanks for the chapter!

    Wow, earlier than usual

    And one of his classmate being held as a slave, eh? I wonder who is he (high chance its a she i think). Would it be a completely new character that hasn’t even introduced in the beginning, or will it be one of the Dragon rider gang (too lazy to go to ch 2 again lel)

    Nevertheless, i hope the side character this time has more emotion than most of the side char all this time (At first looking down at our boy Makoto and then after witnessing his power they suddenly become docile AI)

    Can’t wait for another meet with Janet Valentine-san too though heheh, she seems going to be the type to advance aggressively, just like Sa-san. Either that or shy but aggressive, a bit like that of a maso xD

    Thanks again for releasing the chapter earlier, now i can read right away before my test in an hour! Much love, Reigokai-sama (≧◡≦) ♡

    Honestly, I don’t think Olga will be a Harem member and if she does, I will really be dissapointed. Also, Makoto really needs a power up. By abandoning his humanity perhaps ? Like using the [Change Skill] to change himself into a Spirit which will allow him to wield unlimited mana. Another option is that his RPG skill evolve and allows him to increase his stats.

    For Aya, she just needs to farm levels and her [Action Game Player] may evolve. She also has the Lamia queen magic stone and the [Evolution Skill].

    Who could be that classmate? Kawakita? Okada? Kitayama? (Appeared in Chapter 2)

      As expected of Makoto, the most powerful potion is just a potion that he wants to drink just because it is a powerful potion.😂 Makoto, Elixirs are not energy drinks.

      1. Well as any rpg player will tell you, that thing is never actually used in an emergency. You either beat the game with an unused stockpile, or you waste your elixirs to rush through a sidequest/minigame.

  5. Takatsuki better learn how to use fire spirits already and throw a fucking sun at this country. What sort of assholes would attack one of the major forces that they will be depending on during the upcoming war? Clearly this country isn’t needed if it’s gonna bring down the humans already low chances of victory even lower because of stupid shit like they’re jealous they haven’t gotten any accomplishments yet.

    So is this classmate one of the idiots that was previously mentioned to have gone off somewhere after being kicked out of Highland for trying to lay their hands on women? If they ended up being made a slave then meh. Let them stay like that. They were also assholes to Takatsuki. Or could this classmate be one of the other unaccounted for people that didn’t get summoned to the water church like Sa-san who instead was reincarnated?

    1. Don’t think the info would have made it back to Fuji-yan, if they were a reincarnated one, but I also assume that any asshole that got ahead of himself enough to start getting handsy with women, would have quickly been killed off, unless they had a valuable enough special ability.

  6. Thank you once again kami-sama.
    Hmmmm is it time for Makoto to show his coolness again and rescue his slave classmate. I feel he will show his strong side during G.K.’s crisis and our gal hero will join the Collective or she’ll join the group wanting yuri action from the strong Sa-dan.

  7. Everything was peaceful until the fire country hero attacked… I hope makoto will give that olga a serious beating… But that feels like she would be joining the harem after though.

    Is it gonna be a female classmate who will end up as one of makoto or fuji-yan’s harem?

    Thank you for this chapter!!

  8. > I think the character of Fuji-yan is representing the person IRL of wanting to go on their fantasy world, wherein we read novels like this to escape reality because it was so convenient to lessen our stress.
    Also, the characters of the other worlds story doesnt discriminate much specially in look, but they want you because you can do something which appeal and admired by them like Nina towards Fuji-yan.
    In this world, Fuji-yan can shine on his own story together with Nina and the Noble girl even though he really was an Otaku looking guy, which some of us are envious of him going on the other worlds with ability and created harem

    > The politics surrounding the countries specifically of their position in the strength contest are understandable. How ever, if they do not think how to make an accomplishment like MC, they will remain status quo and will not learn anything.

    As the series title says, MC is the weakest among them, but eventually, gains supports and learn and accumulating something which help him to defeat the demon lord bifron.

    But going with the attitude of Fire country, they were desperate to gain an accomplishment, or to make a show of power to cement their position in the ranking contest, to remain their pride intact, because they didnt think that their political mind and the true goal of a hero has been rusted. This type of country was hard to reason with, unless you fight them back with information warfare at the best…..
    …or Tame that Fire Hero and make her in Heat all day around, and make the politicians of the country be ashamed because the fire hero didnt listen to them anymore and helplessly inlove with someone or MC….

  9. Thanks for the chapter! And honestly I wasn’t surprised that Makoto lost considering the fact that he is the conditional strongest, in a place known as the fire kingsom, it’s no surprise for the lack of water~ anyway the flame hero doesn’t seem like a heroine and now I can’t wait for Makoto to show her the difference in existence~ either the boys gonna train like crazy with Lucy to see fire spirits or he’s gonna do something drastic~ anyway slaves doesn’t seem related to Makoto, sounds more like a side story centers around Fuji, mostly likely another harem member for him~

  10. Thanks for the chapter and it was somewhat short and sweet. The Fire hero is quite brassy and blunt and forward. I hope he gets to hand her her ass. Spreading rumors and misinformation sounds like Drump’s administration. Head’s need to be dented and soon.

    Ok now I am waiting for Makoto to abandon his humanity for greater strength

  14. Oh…Oh my. An enslaved classmate? Yeah, let’s see what we can do about that. I wonder if he’s one of the assholes though.

    That reminds me. Wasn’t Nina enslaved in the Fire Country? I was hoping this country was going to be a fun straightforward culture of flexing and general posturing, but it looks like it’s not going to be that pleasant.

    Not too worried about them trying to assert dominance over Takki. Takatsuki Makoto is Takatsuki Makoto because he goes at his own pace, and that pace just so happens to be a path that mercilessly kicks ass when it counts. It’s quite a feat to make him actually angry though.

  15. So what happened with the demon lord’s soul stone? I can’t tell if Makoto’s meant to be as distractible as a kitten on methamphetamines in a disco, or if it’s the author dropping threads from the story or what.

  16. Thanks for chap
    tbh i was expecting the fire country ppl to be muscle headed idiots with extra vigour, spirit and maybe a masochistic over training fetish but all in all good and straight forward at heart.

    Extremely disappointed that they are petty enough to do this rumoura and stuff with only sending the fire hero for an ambush.

  17. They could use a counter rumor that the Fire Country attacked the Rozes Hero by surprise while he was still hurt because of his fight against a Demon Lord so that they could boost their reputation.
