Sponsored Chapter!


“You look like you are having fun, Hero Makoto.” (Sofia)

Sa-san and Lucy are on top of the bed.

Princess Sofia was looking down at me as if I were a pig before being sent to the slaughter. 

No, I exaggerated there. 

Those eyes weren’t as cold as that.

“Hero-dono, you have woken up, huh.” 

The one who appeared at the back of Princess Sofia was General Tariska.

He looks unfriendly as always, but it seems like he was thanking me on the name of the Fire Country. 

Now that he mentions it, I lost consciousness after using Spirit Magic, but is the capital okay?

By the way, Sa-san, Lucy, and Princess Sofia looked at each other, and then after a while, they left the room —from the window.

This is the third floor though… (Sa-san carried Lucy as she jumped off).

The quarrel between free people.

“Hero-dono, I can’t thank you enough for your help this time around towards the Fire Country. On top of that, your comrade, Sasaki Aya-dono, has become the new Country Designated Hero of Great Keith. From here on, the Fire Country and the Water Country will take hands and…” (Tariska)

General Tariska spoke his gratitude. 

(So much blabber.) (Makoto)

I half-listened to what he said.

To summarize what he said…

Until now, in times of emergency, due to the difference in national power, the standing of Rozes was weak.

The Water Country doesn’t have a strong army. 

Even in the treaties between countries, the Water Country would mostly be on the slightly disadvantageous side. 

This was talk about revising this and having an equal cooperative relationship between neighboring countries in the future. 

While at it, he also told me to get along with the other Heroes. 

It was about how her daughter caused me trouble.

…Is what I understood, but the General was so roundabout and used complicated terms of this world which made it hard for me to understand a lot of parts. 

I should ask Princess Sofia later to explain it to me. 

“Hero Makoto-dono, if you have some sort of wish, please do tell me.” (Tariska) 

General Tariska asked. 

I glanced at Princess Sofia and she had a face as if saying ‘I leave it to you’.

Well, if it is not good, she will stop me. 

It is all about trying, so I decided to ask. 

“General, there’s something I would like to request.” (Makoto)

“Hoh, what is it?” (Tariska)

The eyes of General Tariska grew sharper at my words.

“My friend that came from the same world as me has become a slave. If possible, I want to free her…” (Makoto)

My classmate Kawakita-san has become a slave, and I told him that it has been planned that she will be bought by an influential noble. 

However, when I said that, General Tariska made a grim expression.

“…If I remember correctly, that matter…” (Tariska)

“General, I will tell him. Hero Makoto, your friend Kawakita Keiko-san has been freed already.” (Sofia)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

From what they told me, it was about the Holy Sword Balmung that was broken at the Martial Arts Tournament. 

Sa-san had broken the treasured sword of Great Keith.

But this is a country of military men.

It was the result of a duel that Hero Olga proposed herself, so it had been deemed as her own fault. 

However, a problem remained.

Even though the Great Demon Lord’s battle is on the horizon, the holy sword that serves as a trump card is unusable, which is troubling. 

There’s the need to repair it at once, but when it is a holy sword, your average blacksmith can’t repair it. 

There’s the need for a Saint Rank blacksmith.

But the amount of Saint Rank blacksmiths in the continent can be counted with a hand.

All of them have a lot of customers, and their schedules are filled up for several years ahead. 

Moreover, Saint Rank blacksmiths are people that have the peak of craftsmen spirit, so even if you prepare an exorbitant amount of money, they won’t easily agree.

Even if the requester is a big country like the Fire Country.

At worst, Hero Olga might not be able to participate in the battle against the Great Demon Lord, which made the faces of the higher ups of Great Keith pale.

The one who showed up there was Fuji-yan.

Fuji-yan has a variety of connections as a merchant, and had gotten his hand on a reserved spot for the Saint Rank blacksmith that’s said to be the number one of the continent. They apparently managed to schedule the repair of the holy sword Balmung at once.

The repair of the Holy Sword apparently required rare magic crystals, and magic ores, but Fuji-yan had prepared them all. 

The Fire Country was greatly thankful for his contribution, and when he was asked what he would want as a reward, Fuji-yan requested for the freedom of his friend. 

And so, Kawakita-san is now free. 

This is apparently something that happened before I woke up.

(Sa-san is outrageous, but Fuji-yan ain’t lacking behind.) (Makoto)

The release of his classmate and the matter of the broken holy sword.

The worries were wrapped up all at once by him.

My comrade Sa-san broke it, and my friend Fuji-yan repaired it; it kinda feels like we created a problem and then solved it though.

I should thank Fuji-yan later.

“Then, there’s nothing.” (Makoto)

Got no worries now. 

“…Hmm, but…” (Tariska)

General Tariska doesn’t seem to be satisfied with that. 

“I can prepare the number one beauty of the Fire Country.” (Tariska)

“Huh?”, he said something weird.

“General.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia interrupts the words of General Tariska.

“If you so wish, my daughter is also okay, you know?” (Tariska)

The daughter of General Tariska…that battle junkie Olga-san?

“…I am grateful for the offer, but she’s too much for me to handle.” (Makoto)

I think he is joking, but I try refusing gently just in case.

After that, the General seemed to be pondering, but it looks like he didn’t get a good idea.

“…Then, if you are troubled by anything, we are willing to help anytime.” (Tariska)

Saying this, General Tariska left. 

Only Princess Sofia and I were left in the room.

“You are trusted by the General a lot now.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia sat on my bed and looked at me as if teasing me. 

“He was quite kind there.” (Makoto)

Last time I spoke with him, he was speaking as if he was superior. 

“You achieved something that deserves that much.” (Sofia)

Saying this, Princess Sofia touched the right arm that was wrapped around several layers of bandages.

I…can’t feel her touch.

Princess Sofia looked at me saddened.

“This arm…can’t move anymore, right? I heard from Furi-san.” (Sofia)

Hm? That’s wrong.

“I can move it though?” (Makoto)

“Eh?” (Sofia)

Trying to be careful not to repeat the sexual harassment accident just a few moments ago with Furiae-san, I move my right arm carefully. 

It is the water magic I am specialized in, but I am still not used to the feeling of moving my own arm with magic.

It ended up in a zombie-like movement.

My right arm slowly went up and was placed on top of Princess Sofia’s head.

Geh, that’s bad. 

I hurriedly tried to move it away, but I got flustered and couldn’t move it properly. 

It ended with awkward and rude movements that ruffled the head of the Princess.

As for Princess Sofia, she didn’t try to push my hand away, and she was surprised by it, but kept it as it is.

“It has been a while since you have given me a headpat.” (Sofia)

“Uhm, I am sorry. I can’t move it properly yet.” (Makoto)

I used my left hand to grab my right arm and moved it away from Princess Sofia’s head.

I should have done so from the beginning. 

“Rest for a bit more. You woke up not that long ago.” (Sofia)

I was urged by Princess Sofia and lied down on the bed.

There was probably still exhaustion remaining in my body, when I lied down, drowsiness attacked me. 

Just before my consciousness flew away, I felt like someone patted my head.

◇◇

I am dreaming. 

A vast space that goes on for as far as the eye can see. 

The usual dream. 

At that place, there’s two beautiful Goddesses. 

….Surrounded by a mountain of documents.

“Noah-sama? Eir-sama?” (Makoto)

Eir-sama was signing the documents with a complicated expression.

Noah-sama was writing something smoothly while having one hand on her chin. 

It is difficult to talk to them in this situation, but the fact that I am here must mean that they must have something to talk to me about. 

“Oh my, Makoto, isn’t that great? You managed to save the Fire Country from danger, and free your classmate.” (Noah)

Noah-sama directed a smile over here. 

“Hey, Noah! Don’t stop your hand! There’s still more than a thousand papers left!” (Eir)

“Eir-sama, what’s this mountain of documents?” (Makoto)

This is the first time I see them so busy.

“What, you ask? The documents that must be filled for sending Noah to the mortal realm! You did something that reckless, so explaining is also a pain! We have to deceive the Angels patrolling the mortal realm!” (Eir)

“I-I see…” (Makoto)

It was my fault. 

Noah-sama helped me out when I failed in transforming into a Spirit. 

Noah-sama who is trapped in the Deep Sea Temple came to me for an instant. 

Eir-sama was the one who arranged that. 

“Now now, Eir, let’s take a short rest. See, I have some haagen-dazs here.” (Noah)

“Why do you have that…?” (Makoto)

Noah-sama sometimes has products from Earth.

Where does she get them?

“From Amazon.” (Noah)

Delivery?! 

It arrives?

“I want Cookies & Cream! I won’t accept anything else aside from that!” (Eir)

“Then, I want macadamia nuts. You get vanilla, Makoto.” (Noah)

“…O-Okay. Thanks.” (Makoto)

It has been a while since I have eaten haagen-dazs.

“Noah-sama, Eir-sama, thank you very much for helping me out.” (Makoto)

After we finished eating, I thanked the two once again.

“It’s fine, it’s fine. It has been a while since I have gone to the mortal realm, so it was fun.” (Noah)

“Hey there, do you know just how troublesome it is to have you go out…hm?” (Eir)

The cheerful Noah-sama and the slightly tired Eir-sama. 

That Eir-sama made a startled expression as if she noticed something.

“Wait! Mako-kun, show me that arm.” (Eir)

Eir-sama came over here and grabbed my right arm.

She had a serious questioning tone that’s different from her usual self.

Her eyes were sharp, and what was reflected in them was the right arm that was wrapped around several layers of bandage. 

“Unwrap.” (Eir)

The bandages unwrapped in an instant at the command of Eir-sama.

The exposed right arm was shining blue. 

I secretly had a peek at it in the hospital room, but…I can’t show this to others. 

“…” (Eir)

Eir-sama isn’t saying anything.

She came to my side, grabbed my right arm with strength, and glared at one point. 

“Noah, what’s the meaning of this?” (Eir)

Eir-sama lifted my arm turned blue and showed it to Noah-sama.

The small bruise that was above my elbow. 

Within my arm shining blue, only that part was shining red.

“Aah, that’s the place I touched Makoto.” (Noah)

“…Now that you mention it…” (Makoto)

Right before the comet fell, Noah-sama grabbed my right arm.

It got hot as if I got a fever just for an instant, and I remember the pain in my arm receding at that time. 

“Noah…you gave Divinity to Mako-kun, didn’t you?” (Eir)

“Oh my, that’s troubling. Looks like it accidentally got stuck on Makoto.” (Noah)

Those words made Eir-sama walk to where Noah-sama is and grab her by the collar.

“That was what you were aiming to do?” (Eir)

An angered tone that you would normally find unthinkable from the usually kind Eir-sama.

“Now now, Eir, calm down.” (Noah)

Noah-sama simply showed a vague smile.

“Answer! Giving power to humans with anything aside from Divine Protections is prohibited. Do you understand what you have done?” (Eir)

“E-Eir-sama? Calm down.” (Makoto)

I was startled by her unusual state, but I got close to stop them.

That Eir-sama said while directing a sharp glare over here.

“Mako-kun, the reason why your arm is not recovering from its Spirit transformation and why you can’t properly move it is all because of the Divinity of Noah. That mark on your arm, if put into words, would be the Curse of a God. Noah has obtained the authority to interfere in the mortal realm through you who is her believer.” (Eir)

“Curse of a God…” (Makoto)

Furiae-san said ‘your arm is cursed’. So that’s how it was.

“If you have something like that, we Holy Gods can’t just ignore you, Mako-kun. If Althena-neesama who is strict on regulations were to discover this, Mako-kun might get erased. He saved the Fire Country, so I don’t think it will happen immediately though… Noah, just what are you planning?” (Eir)

“Noah-sama?” (Makoto)

I asked for an explanation, and looked at the Goddess I follow.

Her face had the usual smile.

Beautiful as always.

“It is insurance for the next time Makoto fails transforming into a Spirit. I can’t go to the mortal realm every single time after all. If I give him my Divinity, I can directly control the Spirits.” (Noah)

“I see.” (Makoto)

The risk of transforming into a Spirit is high.

If it is as insurance, there shouldn’t be that much of a problem.

“Mako-kun…it is not only Spirits she can control, you know. At that time, you can be controlled at the will of Noah. Are you fine with that? Moreover, you will catch the attention of Holy Gods and Devils alike. Honestly speaking, it is outside your mettle as a human, Mako-kun.” (Eir)

(Hmm…) (Makoto)

The words of Eir-sama rang with worry for me. 

I looked at both Goddesses, and my eyes met Noah-sama’s.

We looked at each other for several seconds.

“Makoto, do you trust me?” (Noah)

“Isn’t that obvious?” (Makoto)

“Then, trust me. I won’t do anything bad.” (Noah)

“Got it.” (Makoto)

Resolved.

“Wait wait wait!” (Eir)

Eir-sama flusteredly got in between Noah-sama and I.

““Problem?””

“There’s nothing but problems!” (Eir)

Eir-sama scratched her head and went ‘kiiih!’.

“Is that enough to convince you, Mako-kun?!” (Eir)

“Well, Noah-sama is always scheming something by default.” (Makoto)

That has been like that since the very beginning.

Regardless of that, she has been helping me, so I can’t complain.

On this occasion, if we had left it like that, we would have all been blown up by the meteor. 

“In the first place, you are way too fuzzy, Eir. Even if I gave him my Divinity, I am currently in the Deep Sea Temple, so my powers are sealed. I can’t do anything.” (Noah)

“Hmm…” (Eir)

Eir-sama looks at us both as if unconvinced.

And in the end, she sighed a big ‘haaaah’.

“It is peaceful right now so it is okay, but…when the Great Demon Lord revives, you might get targeted as an abnormal factor.” (Eir)

“Great Demon Lord’s revival; is that happening soon?” (Makoto)

“Hmm, Ira-chan isn’t saying anything, so I think there’s still a bit of time.” (Eir)

“I would say a number of months more. Anyways, this is neverending.” (Noah)

“Whose fault do you think it is?!” (Eir)

The Goddesses return to their paperwork. 

It is about time I leave, is what I thought and my vision blurred.

◇◇

I woke up in the hospital room.

There’s no clock, so I don’t know what time it is, but it is probably late in the night. 

I tried to get up, but my right arm didn’t move.

I had no choice but to use my left arm to lift myself up.

My right arm is wrapped up in bandages, and doesn’t move with my physical strength.

I remember the talk in my dream.

Looks like this arm not only has the mana of Spirits, but the power of Noah-sama.

The Divinity of the Old God Noah-sama. 

Commonly known in the present as an Evil God.

In other words, the power of an Evil God.

I have to control that. 

(…Could it be…the turn of that phrase?) (Makoto)

I was enlightened. 

I look around.

There’s no one in the room.

Alright.

“…Quell down…my right arm.” (Makoto)

“What’s the matter, Takatsuki-kun?” (Aya)

“Sa-san?!” (Makoto)

You were here?! 

Seems like she was looking after me closeby. 

But please don’t erase your presence! 

“I-It’s nothing.” (Makoto)

I used Clear Mind to fake calmness.

But Sa-san looked over here and grinned with half-closed eyes.

“…’Quell down…my right arm…’ Pfft!” (Aya)

This woman! 

She saw it all! 

“Forget it at once!” (Makoto)

I lunged at Sa-san.

“Kyaa~!” (Aya)

Sa-san avoided smoothly while laughing.

I was teased by Sa-san for a while after that.

And in this way, the Fire Country’s adventure ended.

  1. Thanks for the chapter~

    You know that you don’t have to run, right? Lucy and Sa-san? Sofia pretty much already acknowledge that the both of you are the one who got Makoto first after all
    Sofia headpat! She seems enjoying it xD

    1. Yes, Sofia was very cute. Makoto should give her hug or something. She is the one who spends the least time with him after all. Also,you should not forget than the one who seems to enjoy his headpats the most is the Great Sage.
      Fortunately, Olga didn’t end up in Makoto’s harem. I would have dropped the novel if it happened.

  2. Lol, Makoto steadily growing more and more powerful.
    What do you guys think about angels that Eir Sama said , would Makoto meet one of them in the future and GJ Makoto, truly said like a chuuni there.

    Liked by 11 people

    1. If they come for him, he’s just gonna have to add angels to the harem. It’s what happens to all the troublesome women that attack him; First Lucy complaining about his useless title, then Sa-san trying to eat him, and then Lightning Hero and his sister trying to kill or cripple him. They all join in the end.

      1. Noah-sama smiling a lot in this chapter kinda bothering me. Its like it has a lot of meaning behind it. A secret evil plan? Her simply happy about descending into mortal realm again after so long? Or her happy that Makoto is growing stronger day by day?
        I can only hope that it’s simply the second one

        Liked by 1 person

      2. Like Makoto said, Noah is always scheming something. I think she is probably smiling for the three reasons you mentioned. As for her Divinity, I think Makoto will do something crazy like “If I can’t beat a God, I just have to become one ! ” and try to absorb her Divinity.

  3. Thank you Reigokai for another awesome chapter!

    Fuji-yan is truly scary and awesome! Bring us more Fuji-yan! as for Noah-kamisama, just what are you plotting? I do like how Takki-dono just aknowledes that she is always scheming something but still trusts her. Now how will using that arm play out? I really want to see.

    Engage full Chuuni mode! Then again you are actaully Cursed “read as Blessed” by a Goddess. You can indulge!

    Amazon has invaded the world of the Gods! That is the scariest part!

    Okay so maybe Sakurai vs Makoto 1v1 is as close as it seems

  5. Of course that would happen.
    Also, since when was Amazon a cross-dimensional delivery organization?
    Or does she have a portal to the other world?
    Or was it obtained from a delivery man who died on his way delivering Haagen Dazs?

  6. What is she planning to do with Makoto ? Well, I don’t think she will use him and dispose of him with her divinity afterwards. I think Noah views Makoto more than just a believer. I don’t know if someone also read the epilogue of volume 1 of the LN, but there are actually major differences with the conversation with the Giant God Old Man.
    1- She thinks highly of Makoto which is not the case in the WN. Noah says things like “Takatsuki Makoto is the best” or “Takatsuki Makoto is the greatest apostle ever.”
    2- We learn that Noah usually treated her followers like nothing more than a bunch of feathers.
    3- She seems to enjoy talking about Makoto. The Giant God have the following thought: “Truly, the young lady seems to be enjoying herself when she talks about her new follower, Takatsuki Makoto. This is the first time I’ve heard such a voice of hers.”
    4- The Giant God even warns her to not be involved too much with her believer. He also thinks : “I’m worried. I don’t think it’s possible, but I wonder if you’re in love with a believer”
    Link of the epilogue of volume 1 of LN: https://itsame-translations.com/weakest-mage/clearing-an-isekai-with-the-zero-believers-goddess-vol-1-epilogue/
    Is she planning to make him absorb her divinity in order for him to become a Half-God or God? Because if Noah is starting with the Holy Gods, Makoto will need at least be able to fight a God in order to help her.

    Liked by 2 people

    1. the reason she said that Makoto the best apostle is because he still retain his sanity after seeing her i think, all of her believer always went mad when they see Noah face which make her don’t really care about them.

      Liked by 3 people

    2. I wouldn’t be surprised if that was he case. After all, Makoto is the only person she’s met with who can act normally around her, free from her inherent enchanting aura. Even other male gods fail to resist her charms. Makoto is naturally the only male with whom she’s able to have a legitimate relationship, romantic or otherwise.

      Liked by 2 people

    3. Like Noah-sama said herself that she is still being sealed up that she can’t use any of her power, i don’t think she can do whatever she wants as of now. Well, it would be a different story if that touch of divinity means a part of her body is now in Makoto. Then Noah-sama might be able to do something with that.

      I think maybe Noah-sama would descend into Makoto’s body someday, when they encounter one of the big shots of the Snake church again. She might want to give a beating or two to dem snake church members.

  7. Thanks for the chapter!

    I feel as though Makoto’s ability to say “no” to Olga / General Tariska shows some character development. Part of deciding who you want to be is deciding who you don’t want to be.

    Suggestions:

    By the way, Sa-san, Lucy, and Princess Sofia looked at each other, and then after a while, they left the room —from the window. – this makes it sound like all three self-defenestrated. But actually only Aya and Lucy left, so maybe it should say, “after a while, Sa-san and Aya left the room…”

    To resume what he said… => summarize.

    Liked by 2 people

  8. Oh when it said the girls left the room I thought Sofia was included and I thought she has been infected by Makoto’s group thinking it’s perfectly normal to exit a room by jumping out of the third story window. Instead Sofia stayed to listen to what the General has to say and provide counsel to Makoto if needed. Anyways good thing Makoto refused adding Olga to his harem. After the shit she and Dahlia pulled why would he agree to adding Olga or some other girl from the Fire Country to his harem? Besides Sa-san is now officially the Fire Country’s Designated Hero.

    Fuji-yan in the background doing WORK. Like I once said, I wouldn’t mind reading a story of Fuji-yan’s own exploits. Anyways so will Kawakita end up joining his harem? She fills the childhood friend role in a harem and she’ll probably be told of exactly what Fuji-yan did to rescue her so this could turn into one of those rescue romances. Only thing is she’ll have to work past her aversion to harems.

    Oh yeah Makoto is definitely gonna turn moving his arm into a training exercise since he can’t move it easily right now. Hrm… so all he did was give Sofia a headpat while he instead groped Furi’s boobs. Sofia better not learn about it because otherwise she’ll demand equal treatment. Was it Eir who advised her to be more aggressive?

    Uh is Noah really imprisoned? She was able to briefly physically visit the real world and she can order things like Haagen-Dazs ice cream from Amazon… Anyways now Noah and Eir gotta fill out a bunch of paperwork because Noah was allowed to leave her prison and that was all just for the briefest of moments. Imagine the paperwork if she stayed for longer. They probably gotta do all that paperwork because of Althena who seems like a stuck-up bitch from what we’ve learned. Maybe they should rebel just so they can kick Althena down and not have to do any more paperwork.

    So Noah put her Divinity into Makoto’s arm. It’s probably for part of a plan to escape her prison. Makoto does say she’s always scheming and it makes sense she’d want to do things with the goal of escaping her prison. Eh well Eir can’t really say anything since she’s just as scheming. No wonder she and Noah get along so well.

    Pfft!!! I was right! He said it! He actually said the chuuni phrase! Abyssgate would be proud.

    1. What could a good title be for a spin-off of Weakest Mage ? “My best friend is a competent but insane hero and I am supporting him by doing the background work. The Richest among the Classmates.”

      Fujiwara and Kawakita seems to be really close. If she loves him enough,I think she would accept being part of his harem.
      Amazon ? Lol, will she order some RPG to play with Makoto at some point ? It will be very interesting if it happens.

      1. Kawakita should definitely ends up being together with Fuji-yan. I don’t see any reason on why she would ends up with Makoto other than she is pretty close with Aya, but if the author decided so then i would be really disappointed.

  9. Thanks for the double chapter! Finally Makoto has unlocked a new power after a long time and it’s a powerful one. Would Makoto awakes to the power of the gods soon? Also there might be concerns regarding that divinity though, with the Holy Gods taking a closer eye to him and the possibility of Noah taking control of Makoto one day. From what I’ve seen though it feels like Makoto have complete faith over Noah and from the earlier chapters? he is supposed to follow the goddess’ order as the apostle. Really looking forward to the next arc, which I guess might take place at the Northern something? (I forgot the name) and see what will he encounter (probably the Snake Church again tbh). Hopefully one day Makoto is able to take full control of the Divinity power and who knows maybe he’ll become a god sooner or later.

  10. KEK. Noah-sama with her keikaku. Eir doesn’t really get to be mad considering the whole matter with sacrificial magic. It’s not like Noah couldn’t control Takki the whole time anyway, since he’s considered her apostle.

    Speaking of which, there are angels patrolling the world, huh? That’s probably an encounter for another time. Either as the next Snake Church pawn or the enemy after Isaac is dealt with.

    A touch of divinity, huh? Once he figures this out, it sounds like Takki will be able to properly start taking down gods. It would be amazing fun if everyone freaked out because the strongest goddess of their side Athena gets killed.

    It’s nice seeing him fooling around with Noah and Sa-san. I want Häagen-Dazs too!

  11. Thanks for the chapter. You know, I actually have a feeling that if Noah tried to control Makato, it isn’t going to go well for her. Mostly due to his RPG player skill.

  12. So she was really planning something huh, and divinity eh, in one part I would wanted that he obtained divinity by himself but in the other hand this is not really bad because with that he can slowly get accustomed to the divine power and use it bit by bit, this support what I say that because he is the person most accustomed to gods some day he would transform in one, before he only interacted with them and transform with just that it’s honestly a bit rough, but with this is completely different. Also, if his proficiency increase to the point he don’t only use the water as is just natural, but he also feels the water, then he could use his arm as if nothing, though is possible that he gain the sensibility in it by something more simple than that.

      1. The rest of his body is still very weak, but that one arm could probably one-punch sand dragons like Sa-san (though the recoil would probably send him flying too), it is all a matter of how well he can control the arm.

        Liked by 1 person

      2. Ah, the recoil, right, I have not considered that, but yeah, with enough control he probably could ignore that, what I though if he can become his arm in a water dragon for example, a water wall and much more things.

  13. Firstly, great work Reigokai, we can’t thank you enough for your work. I kinda didn’t want to comment in the last few chapters. But still reading and as always, love your work!
    Secondly, Makoto turned down Tarishka’s offer, huh? That’s really good! But I think they way it’s going with the Olga POV is the harem candidate route still. Why? She has the same views as Janet did! I wouldn’t want her in his harem, but the author just might want it… Hmmmm….
    I was thinking the way up to godhood will be increasing his proficiency, but it seems like it won’t… And yes, according to the LN it seems like/gives the vibe that Noah just might have feelings for Makoto. Well giving author’s explanation it seems plausible, even male gods are going insane near her.
    Lastly I want to bring to the table the Abel/Cain subject. Seems like people say that this will be a repeat of history with Sakurai being Abel… Stop believing that folks, you might just gonna be betrayed by author in that regard. Why? Makoto =/= Cain, he didn’t go mad, he doesn’t have the same attitude as the other characters portray Cain to be. If it’s someone who is resembling Makoto, that might be Abel, every characters says it! If it might be a repeat a history Sakurai might be Cain if that might – because it should be a reversal or something different than this. Either way Makoto doesn’t bear any resemblance to Cain whatsoever.

    1. Taking into account Great Sage’s words about Abel’s creed (which was similar to Makoto’s about being careful and well-prepared) and Bifrons vaguely recognizing Makoto, as well as the whole scene with Setekh where he left before he could hear Makoto’s name, I can’t help but wonder if Makoto is the reincarnation of Abel somehow, or maybe Abel himself due to time travel hijinks (hoping for the former, time travel always makes things messy). As for Sakurai, it’s possible for him to turn out like Cain. Considering his treatment and all the pressure he’s under, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some resentment buried deep within that could be the trigger for him becoming evil.

      1. My guess is that Abel is an alter ego of Makoto. Remember that Makoto is a RPG player, and the novel says that Makoto likes to grind a lot nowadays. But the novel also states that he usually goes for all the possible routes in a game in order to discover everything that can be discovered. And when I say Abel is an alter ego I mean Makoto played as a character behind his PC in this world before or something like that. But my guess can be wrong, because there is nothing to confirm it, so it’s just a ‘vibe’ of sorts. And I welcome this to be wrong. But when I say this I also think that Cain can also be an alter ego o Makoto in the same regard. So Makoto would be the 2 together (he tried playing the `game` as a good guy -Abel- and as a bad guy -Cain-). And the Abel/Cain names come from our world. I assume a RPG player would name his character according to his playthrough like this is my good playthrough – Abel, and this is my evil playthrough – Cain.
        But on the Sakurai part? Can’t really stick with it. In my point of view Sakurai can’t be that bad. I had a previous argument regarding Sakurai that he can’t turn out that bad, because people say that he’s in love with Furiae, but that could be a trigger for him to go that route, and I refuse in my humble opinion to think that he could love a woman, and leave her to his best friend (he is a carnivore – he should know better) while he does some stuff in the Sun country. Because my take is that Sakurai’s thinking that he’s kinda of a cool guy, but can’t live up to that. But he’s generally a good guy, or at least he tries to be a good guy. So I can’t imagine Sakurai going that route. I would say that I would dislike if the author would go that route in order to change Sakurai into an evil guy, but that doesn’t mean the author wouldn’t. The problem with Sakurai is that he’s not a vegetarian, but he doesn’t have a `pair` to act according to his beliefs. While Makoto is the opposite, he’s denser than a Black Hole but he’s does what he likes and if he doesn’t like some things he says NO unlike others…

    2. That’s also a possible theory. What’s certain is that there is a connection between Makoto and Hero Abel for sure. There’s too much foreshadowing to suggest otherwise. As for Sakurai, my idea is that his suppressed negative emotions could leave him vulnerable to possession or mind control by the Demon King, who would then force him to fight his comrades. After all, turning one of your opponent’s best weapons against them is a fine strategy. As for Furiae, I never got the impression that Sakurai had feelings for her. It always seemed to me that he helped her because he felt gulity for what Highland did to her and her people. Plus, even if Sakurai liked her that way, there are too many things working against them if they were to pursue a relationship. On the other hand, Furiae getting together with Makoto is simpler, benefits her, her country, and even Noah in a way.

    3. Ever since I read when Eir was explaining the true purpose of the Sacrificial Offering Technique is that it takes the person’s soul and basically brainwashes their reincarnation to become an ally to the Holy Gods though with apparent personality or mental problems being a risk I’ve had this theory that it was used on Makoto. That Makoto was Cain who had probably been somebody who had been isekai’d previously but then went insane from being Charmed by Noah and became the villain he was known as. Anyways maybe one of the Holy Gods had gotten somebody to use the Sacrificial Offering Technique on him in an attempt to brainwash him and use his reincarnation to fight against Iblis because they knew how strong Cain was but something went wrong with the technique and instead of Cain reincarnating as a new hero in that world, he instead reincarnated as Makoto on Earth. I think he had the technique used on him because Makoto is not right in the head since even before getting isekai’d and getting RPG Player. I mean he decided once that instead of going to look for an adult or the police to deal with a pedophile like a normal person he instead broke a bunch of windows to get the police to come to him so he could lead them to the pedophile and then he bragged about his accuracy rate of how many windows he broke instead of apologizing for it. Another example is that when everybody was freezing to death on the bus before getting isekai’d and he was surrounded by their frozen corpses, he was more interested in finishing his handheld game. I feel like those sorts of things could be explained as being the result of problems caused by the Sacrificial Offering Technique. That Makoto ended up becoming Noah’s Apostle again could either be a coincidence or fate.

      As for Abel, I actually wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out Abel is actually a girl and still alive. The Great Sage has no obligation to correct Highland on Abel’s gender and in fact it may have been changed for some stupid political reasons. We’ve seen what assholes the Highland nobles are with how they placed no importance in Princess Noel
      because she’s a woman until Sakurai showed up and only then did they begin to place importance in her but only as the future mother of the hero’s child. So what if the nobles of Abel’s time were just as sexist so they either recorded Abel as being a man or they convinced Abel to dress as a man with the excuse that the forces against Iblis wouldn’t listen to the commands of a woman and the Great Sage either didn’t know Abel’s real gender or she was convinced to keep quiet about her gender? It would also be the reason why Abel never had descendants with the Oracle Anna on account that they would both be girls. As for Abel being alive, I seem to recall how the Great Sage got really flustered when Makoto said that he met Bifrons and that he was lucid and that the Great Sage wanted to ask him about recent information about a comrade and it can’t be Johnny or Anna since we know they’re definitely dead so that only leaves Abel who was only said to have disappeared.

      1. The Bifrons question posses some unknowns! The Abel/woman theory can be right, but Trail Blazer, do they make it clear in this regard in the next 20-30 chapters? Or only at the 300+ mark? :)) So that wouldn’t be a spoiler, even if I’m not bothered by spoilers. But we must respect other who hate them.

      2. Regarding the sacrifice and rebirth thing, I can see it, but for the hero Abel specifically. Takki has been shown to resemble him in a lot of ways: being cautious, saying the same lines, and being the problem-fixer.

        Though that implies the gods betrayed him and recycled his soul to be a pawn-or maybe he tried to save Noah or someone and failed. It would be quite the appropriate irony to how their reception in this world turns out.

  15. > The ending was so sweet at least i think. Makoto catching Sa-san, and if he do, he can do anything to Sa-san!!!
    > It seems i got a doubt by Noah in this chapter. It seems to me at the later chapters, she might be preparing something while using Makoto as diversionary tactics. Also, she was using Makoto to make the conditions she was planning to came true, and the final preparations would be her revival from the Sea Temple…
    It might be a revenge something…

    Noah is beautiful, and it might be something in relation to the gods in the divine realm who hits on her and when she dumps them and they team up and seal Noah so that no one among them will impregnate her…. hahahahahaha

  16. I was thinking, he has infinite mana in that arm, so if he could think of a water-attribute physical enhancement spell, he could get over his extreme physical weakness right after getting over his lack of mana and being too reliant on spirits, which are anything but reliable.

    1. Answering myself, but I was rereading and noticed the whole “fighting aura” thing, and the reason he couldn’t do it before was low mana, but if it is now, maybe he can use it to increase strength and use magic-clad physical attacks?

    “By the way, Sa-san, Lucy, and Princess Sofia looked at each other, and then after a while, they left the room —from the window.
    This is the third floor though… (Sa-san carried Lucy as she jumped off).
    The quarrel between free people.”

    They ran lol

    “I look around.
    There’s no one in the room.
    Alright.
    “…Quell down…my right arm.” (Makoto)”

    AHAHAHA, he really can’t resist saying that line

    Also, with this Makoto seems to have a chance going goddess route. Will there be more goddess hanging out in his dream? Only time will tell. His stats are still abysmal, but he got one heck of a power-up now. He’s really going down the glass cannon AoE build, while minmaxing what he can.

  19. Noah you gave a bit of Divinity to the man who spends every waking moment training to control mana, hes definitely gonna learn to control a gods power. The question I suppose is, did Noah think about this before giving it or did she have other plans

  20. Almost forgot to mention our bro, Fuji-yan. The man with the plan, showing the full might of foresight. He’s also wholly charmed by Takatsuki, but not even the royalty have been able to take advantage of the opportunities our weirdo protagonist creates.

    Monster attack? Prepare all the relief supplies immediately.
    Attack on the Sun Country? Perfect interrogation and information collection.
    Sa-san damaged the national weapon? Just gonna go make arrangements for the ultimate bargaining chip and sliiiiide over to the negotiation table and get his childhood friend off the hook.

    Dude is a badass, even if the sorts of ass he kicks is logistical and diplomatic. I would 100% want to follow his own adventures where he casually destroys business rivals, spies, and saboteurs while smoothly arranging everything to work in his favor.

    As for him saving his childhood friend Kata-whatever…I mean, a harem is fine, but since she’s not into those, I wouldn’t mind if they just sorta stayed friends and she was just part of the friend group.

    1. Looking at the Novel up until now, the gap might be at most a week gap. Hopefully that’s not the case though. I would prefer if the gap is only 2-3 days
