WM – Chapter 172: Takatsuki Makoto speaks to his comrades

“To the reunion of the former class-1A.” 

“““Cheers!”””

Fuji-yan, Sa-san, Kawakita-san, and I were at a bar in the capital of Gamuran.

Kawakita-san has been freed from slavery, so Sa-san proposed to celebrate as former classmates.

Of course, Fuji-yan had no objections.

“Thanks, everyone. In the end, I got saved.” (Keiko)

Kawakita-san laughed as if embarrassed.

“I am so glad, Keiko-chan!” (Aya)

Sa-san hugged Kawakita-san.

They had a girls talk for a while, but Kawakita-san looked over here as if noticing something.

“I heard that you negotiated with an important person of this country, right, Takatsuki? Thanks.” (Keiko)

“By the time I spoke to the General about it, you were freed a long time ago. It was the achievement of Fuji-yan and Sa-san.” (Makoto)

I chuckled and scratched my cheek.

“I have known Michio since a long time ago, and Aya is a friend of mine, so I understand them helping me out. But I never spoke to you at all in class. You are a good guy, Takatsuki.” (Keiko)

Saying this, Kawakita-san showed me a smile which was cute.

When in the classroom, she was gal-like, her tone was rough, and she was a bit scary, but after talking to her for a bit, she is an unexpectedly good girl.

“But you really saved me there-desu zo. Thanks to Sasaki-dono breaking the holy sword Balmung, I managed to get the Fire Country to owe me.” (Fuji)

“Repairing the holy sword must have been more difficult though.” (Makoto)

“Hahaha! I coincidentally had a friend of a friend that was close to a Saint Rank blacksmith. I was just lucky-desu zo.” (Fuji)

Fuji-yan laughed out loud.

But I know. 

When Fuji-yan makes a difficult request, he would say ‘about that, it was from a friend of a friend…’ and would wrap most of it like that.

He has way too many connections! 

After that, we talked about the hardships we had since the time we came to this world, and got heated up talking about our original world. 

Kawakita-san and Sa-san were having a lively talk about their displeasure in the lack of sweet stuff in this world.

Now that I think about it, the ice cream I got from Noah-sama was a tasty sweet which I haven’t had in a while. 

By the way, there’s a lot of spicy food in the cuisine of the Fire Country.

The famous food of the bar has skewers that are plenty spicy, and soup that has chilli peppers. 

I like it quite a lot. 

After having a tasty meal and drinking a good deal, at the time when everyone was decently drunk already…

“Hey, Michio, you have a girlfriend?” (Keiko)

I heard that conversation. 

Kawakita-san must be drunk now, she was leaning on Fuji-yan.

No, rather than drunk, it is more like a flirting glance.

(Oh?) (Makoto)

Sa-san and I look at each other.

By the way, I checked around to see if Nina-san was here. (She wasn’t)

“…Uhm, how to say this…” (Fuji)

He doesn’t have a girlfriend.

He has two wives.

It was unusual for Fuji-yan to have difficulty speaking when he normally speaks cheerfully about anything.

Kawakita-san doesn’t seem to notice that state of his, and was looking at Fuji-yan with a heated gaze. 

“You see…I was acting tough, but I was scared of being bought by a noble… I am truly thankful, also you are now a noble of an area, right…? I have no place to go to now, so…” (Keiko)

“O-Of course, you can stay as long as you want, Keiko-dono. I will welcome you as a guest!” (Fuji)

“Geez, that’s not what I mean… Also, call me Kei just like in the past.” (Keiko)

(Aah.) (Makoto)

This is not good.

Fuji-yan (married) is being seduced.

The eyes of Fuji-yan are swimming. 

I have to save this friend of mine! 

Is what I was thinking, but…

“Keiko-chan, Keiko-chan.” (Aya)

Sa-san moved first.

She whispered in the ear of Kawakita-san.

I activate Eavesdrop. 

I don’t really have to listen to it to know though.

“Fujiwara-kun already has two wives.” (Aya)

“……Eh?” (Keiko)

Ah, Kawakita-san has frozen.

Of course that would happen.

Fuji-yan hasn’t told her.

I glanced at the face of my friend, and…he looked like he was feeling awkward. 

Of course he would, huh. 

“I-I see…! I-Is that so! What, so that’s how it was!” (Keiko)

The face of Kawakita-san was bright red. 

She was lightly teary eyed. 

I feel bad for her.

“Takatsuki, what’s with those eyes?!” (Keiko)

“Nothing-ssu.” (Makoto)

She got angry. 

Scary.

The old Kawakita-san.

“Aya, we are drinking today! Keep me company!” (Keiko)

“Eh? O-Okay! I will!” (Aya)

Kawakita-san is chugging down ale as if trying to divert her embarrassment.

Sa-san is matching that and chugging down grape wine. 

Sa-san, wine and ale have completely different percentages of alcohol, you know?

I put a hand on Fuji-yan’s shoulder, and sip on a glass myself at the corner.

The drinking party continued till morning. 

◇◇

…My head hurts.

We drank too much yesterday. 

But having a talk with a former classmate after a long time was fun.

In the end, after that, Kawakita-san shouted at Fuji-yan: “What kind of people are those two wives of yours?! Let me meet them!” 

She is strong.

This is the first time I spoke with Kawakita-san so much, but I learned a lot of things and it was fun. 

You really can’t tell unless you talk with them.

Now that I think about it, are my other classmates doing well?

It has been a while since I have seen Sakurai-kun.

Maybe we should hang out at least once. I looked outside the window while thinking that.

Raindrops were hitting the window.

It doesn’t rain much in Great Keith, but it looks like the weather here has gone slightly crazy due to my Spirit Magic the other day.

It rains pretty often lately. 

Since the weather is like this, maybe I should go out. 

I looked outside the window of the inn, and I saw the back figure of a red clothed mage. 

I went outside through the window. 

“Lucy, what are you doing at a place like this?” (Makoto)

Lucy was holding her staff up while her body was being wet by the rain. 

“Training magic. Mama told me to do it everyday.” (Lucy)

“Can’t you do it in the house?” (Makoto)

“If I mess up, I would blow up the surroundings.” (Lucy)

“…I see.” (Makoto)

That’s not good.

“It is better to do it outside.” (Makoto)

The inn we are staying at is connected to the Rozes royalty. 

The payment for reparations if we were to destroy it would be scary. 

“But wouldn’t it be fine to do so after the rain stops? Should I clear it up for you?” (Makoto)

I raised my right arm onto the sky. 

Seeing this, Lucy made a dubious expression.

“Changing the weather is impossible unless you are the Great Sage-sama, right?” (Lucy)

“Really? I feel like I could do it though.” (Makoto)

Noah-sama showed me once.

If it is with the mana in my Spirit Arm, I feel like it might be possible. 

“Uuh…it is scary because it feels possible with Makoto… There’s also Aya becoming a Hero. I am the only one being left behind.” (Lucy)

Lucy hung her head down dispirited. She was fidgeting with the tip of her toes.

“Lucy?” (Makoto)

She doesn’t seem to be feeling well? 

“Hey, am I being of use?” (Lucy)

Lucy asks me insecurely.

Oi oi, what a stupid thing to ask.

“If you weren’t by my side, Lucy, I wouldn’t be standing here.” (Makoto)

“R-Really…?” (Lucy)

At Spring Log, the reason why a lot of things went well was thanks to Lucy.

I managed to get acquainted with Rosalie-san and the Wood Hero Maximilian-san.

Lucy is the great-grandchild of the legendary magic archer Johnny who was an ally of the Savior Abel.

She is also the daughter of the current legend, the Crimson Witch, Rosalie-san.

She was the school junior of the Wood Hero Maximilian. 

The sister-in-law of the Wood Oracle.

She is also the disciple of the Great Sage-sama at the Sun Country.

(When I think about it, she is from quite the elite household.) (Makoto)

Honestly speaking, it was weird that she was having a hard time finding comrades in Makkaren.

But Lucy evaluates herself lowly, and she doesn’t use her family as an appeal point of hers. 

Lucy is clumsy, but there were several situations where it would have been dangerous without her firepower.

If my comrade is feeling down, I have to praise them and bring them back up.

“If it is you, I am sure you will eventually be as strong as Rosalie-san. And so, what training were you doing?” (Makoto)

“I don’t feel like I can catch up to Mama… I am training in Teleport, but it is not going well at all…” (Lucy)

Ooh, that’s nice! 

Having a party member who can use Teleport would be the best. 

“Your current success rate is around 10%, right?” (Makoto)

“Yeah… it won’t be usable unless I raise the success rate a bit more.” (Lucy)

Lucy groans dejected.

It is a spell of high difficulty to begin with.

I think it is natural that you can’t use it so quickly though. 

It might be better to have her have a change of pace.

“Then, let’s try it together with me. I want to see Lucy’s Teleport after all.” (Makoto)

I held the hand of Lucy.

“The two of us? It doesn’t go well even when I am alone though…” (Lucy)

She says that, but she holds my hand too.

“When stuck, it is better to test out a variety of things and change the pace a bit, right?” (Makoto)

“Hmm, is that how it works?” (Lucy)

Lucy is tilting her head, but it seems like she is willing to do it. 

“Then, here we go.” (Lucy)

Lucy holds her staff with her right hand, and with her left she is holding my hand.

She is doing the chant for the Superior Rank Gold Spell, Teleport – Short Distance.

At the same time, I feel a fearsome surge of mana.

Teleport is a famous spell, and there’s a lot of mages who try to learn it. 

But there’s practically no users of it. 

One of the reasons why is how bad the cost of it is.

It consumes a stupid amount of mana. 

That’s why it apparently suits the elf race that is born with explosive amounts of mana. 

Lucy finished chanting. 

There were several gigantic magic circles floating around us.

(The mana of Lucy is bottomless…) (Makoto)

I have been adventuring with her for a long time, and I haven’t seen her run out of mana once. 

The only times she can’t use magic anymore are when her ability to concentrate runs out. 

“Here I go, Makoto.” (Lucy)

“Yeah, I am sure it will go well.” (Makoto)

“[Teleport]!” (Lucy)

We were covered in light.

The next instant, the scenery in front of us changed completely.

On top of that, a strong wind hit my face.

“Lucy! It went well—eh?” (Makoto)

“M-Makoto! Aren’t we falling?!” (Lucy)

We teleported to midair. 

Moreover, it isn’t just a slight altitude.

We are at around 1,000 meters up (probably).

We were above the clouds.

The ground was visibly getting closer.

“Kyaaaa! What do we do? What do we do, Makoto?!” (Lucy)

The screams of Lucy were mixing with the sound of the wind.

“You can’t use Flying Magic?” (Makoto)

It is a popular Mid Rank Spell.

Most people can use it. 

That’s impossible for me as an apprentice mage though.

“I-I am practicing it, but I can’t fly properly yet!” (Lucy)

“I see.” (Makoto)

“M-Makoto! We are falling! We are falling!” (Lucy)

Lucy’s voice turned teary. 

Not good. I was way too calm with Clear Mind. 

Hey, Spirit-sans.” (Makoto)

I push my right arm to the front, and cast [Water Magic: Phoenix].

In the blink of an eye, a giant Water Phoenix showed up.

I pulled the hand of Lucy and dived on top of that giant bird’s back. 

I disperse the impact of the fall with water magic somehow. 

“Eh? Eh?! Eeeeeeeeh?!” (Lucy)

“Sorry, Lucy. I should have used magic immediately.” (Makoto)

“Makoto, this is a Monarch Rank Spell, isn’t it? Why can you use it so easily?!” (Lucy)

“Thanks to this.” (Makoto)

I showed her my Spirit Arm.

I can pull out the mana of Spirits immediately through my right arm.

What a convenient world it has become -not really.

Lucy and I rode the Water Phoenix, and flew comfortably through the skies of Gamuran.

I search for the inn from the sky. 

We flew around for a while.

But the balance on the Water Phoenix suddenly crumbled.

“Woah.” (Makoto)

“Kyah!” (Lucy)

The altitude lowered, and we were on the verge of falling.

“C-Come back!” (Makoto)

I control that and avoid falling off.

That was dangerous.

I can’t use it properly yet.

“Sorry about that, Lucy. Are you okay?” (Makoto)

“Yeah, I am. That’s rare. To think you could mess up in your control of water magic, Makoto.” (Lucy)

“It is difficult to use this Spirit Arm, you see.” (Makoto)

I showed her my right arm shining blue.

Seeing this, Lucy frowned. 

“Makoto, doesn’t it hurt?” (Lucy)

“It doesn’t -or more like, I can’t feel anything from it.” (Makoto)

“Eh…? That’s worrying in itself though.” (Lucy)

“Thanks to that, I sometimes mess up the minute controls… Well, I prefer how things are right now though. I can do things like this after all.” (Makoto)

I look up. 

There’s gray clouds stretching far in the sky, and rain is falling.

I stretched my right arm up at the sky. 

Spirit-sans, clear up the clouds.” (Makoto)

The clouds began to swirl, spread upwards, and just like that, the sun showed its face from above us. 

“…D-Did you do that…Makoto?” (Lucy)

“Yeah. Convenient, right? I can only do this when it is raining and there’s a lot of Water Spirits though.” (Makoto)

“…”

“Lucy?” (Makoto)

She was at a loss for words.

When we arrived at the inn, I told her to train Teleport once again, but she told me no.

Looks like the teleport location is affected by the mana of the people who are being teleported.

There’s the chance that we were pulled to the rain clouds because of my right arm. 

So that’s why we were sent all the way up, huh.

Teleport is a complicated spell. 

Lucy was working hard in her training, so I thought it would be bad to interfere, and decided to go somewhere else.

“Makoto! I will catch up soon, okay?!” (Lucy)

As I left, she proclaimed this in desperation.

“Don’t push yourself too much.” (Makoto)

“You are doing that all the time though!” (Lucy)

…Really?

I don’t know if I managed to lift her spirit. 

◇ ◇

I woke up early in the morning. 

Now then, it is time for my morning training, so I unwrap the bandages from my right arm.

I look at my shining arm. 

The arm that hasn’t turned back since the time I transformed it into a Spirit. 

Even though it is my own arm, I can’t move it freely…and it gives me a weird feeling of it being connected to somewhere faraway. 

Mana is pulsating like veins. 

Also, slightly above my elbow, there’s a red mark shining faintly. 

Its shine resembles that of a light bulb running out of electricity. Most likely because Noah-sama is sealed in the Deep Sea Temple. 

However, Eir-sama says that this is Divinity. 

…Clear Mind.

Calm down.

I still can’t control my Spirit Arm and the Divinity of Noah-sama.

I still can’t, but…

(Have I gotten stronger recently?) (Makoto)

I managed to control the weather a bit yesterday too.

I felt myself grinning.

When I was thinking what I should do today…

“Hero Makoto, are you up?!” 

Someone suddenly entered my room without knocking. 

If it were Lucy or Sa-san, I would have complained, but…

“S-Sofia. Good morning.” (Makoto)

It was the princess.

I hurriedly return to a normal expression.

“Oh, you were in the middle of training.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia saw me and smiled, but soon made a serious expression.

Did something happen?

“The day of the Northern Expedition has been decided.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia said silently. 

“The Northern Expedition… The one about subjugating the Demon Lords at the Demonic Continent, right? When?” (Makoto)

A subject that has been mentioned multiple times before.

“1 month from now. It will begin on the first day of the Lion Month.” (Sofia)

“In 1 month… It is close.” (Makoto)

That’s surprising.

I thought it would be in 3 months at the very least. 

It is a large scale plan, so isn’t the announcement a bit too sudden?

Princess Sofia lightly nodded at my words lightly. 

“I think so too. Something unexpected must have happened… We were told to have all Heroes and Oracles gather at Symphonia.” (Sofia)

What Princess Sofia informed me about was an urgent assembly from the Sun Country.

  2. Thanks for the chapter!

    Woah it took only days for Makoto to get used to his spirit arms. That’s amazing! And Makoto, you shouldn’t make Lucy feels even more insecure like that, dummy. Man, the spirit arm and Divinity really gives Makoto buffs here and there.

    The expedition is in a month? Seems like he can meet Janet-san earlier than expected. I actually wants to see Makoto trying to do Lightning magic. Wants to see how it synergize with his water magic. Would be cool if he could electrocute mass amount of enemy demons.

  3. Fortunately, it seems that Kawakita will enter in the harem of Fuji-yan. Congratulations, Fujiyan. Also, Michio and Kei ? Wow, they were really close on Earth.

    I don’t know if it is a plot hole, but why Lucy can use Gold Magic ? Doesn’t she have only Grand Mage and Fire Magic: Monarch ? Is it that space related spells like Teleport can be used as long you have the mana for it like Flying Magic ?
    Wow, Makoto can now clear the weather and use Monarch Grade magic instanly without Water Spirits nearby.

    The Northern Expedition, huh. Are they going to subjugate all the Demon Lords or just one ? The Demon Lords are the Beast King Zagan, the Ancient Dragon King Astaroth and Sea Monster King Forneus. If Makoto fight Forneus on the sea, I think he will be able to put a good fight.

    1. From what I remember Grand Mage lets the user use all the elements. Lucy just happens to specialize in fire because of her lineage and earth because of the blessing from the old man titan.

      If I recall correctly the expedition is supposed to be to subjugate Demon Lord Zagan. Meanwhile they said that Geralt and his troops and I guess Janet and her troops too would hold back Demon Lord Astaroth so that he wouldn’t be able to join up and help Zagan. Makoto technically has no role assigned to him yet but they are going to suggest he help hold back Demon Lord Forneus after they saw how skilled he is with water magic.

      1. I see. I must’ve misremembered it then. Then I guess Lucy either has more elemental affinities than just those 4 or she can use her massive mana pool to brute force magic of other elements she doesn’t have an affinity too.

    2. Maybe Gold Magic runs on different principles? Like, there’s no actual need for the Skill in order to use it, but the cost of the spells are higher than your regular ones and harder to master.
      Since we haven’t seen anyone with Gold Magic Skill Ranks in their Status, maybe that’s why? Would be clearer if we had a peek on Rosalie’s Soul Book or something though.

      1. Makoto also just mentioned that a lot of mages try to learn but are unable to due to its cost of Mana, he doesn’t say anything about limitations of compatibility. So it’s probably something anyone can learn as long as they have the Mana for it.

        Liked by 3 people

    3. Probably the reason why Lucy have it is through training with her mom. As far as I know, things like teleport magic and barrier magic is outside of the 4 elements. I’m still not sure about skill system in this world after all. I think it has something to do with training, your stats, and clearing some conditions, like being a certain god follower to get the blessing.

      They’re subjugating Zagan only, but Astaroth and Forneus will try to hinder them.

      Liked by 1 person

      1. I honestly expect them to fail in subjugating Zagan especially since they seem to be rushing this operation where Makoto says originally it was supposed to take place in 3 months instead of one. I also expect that Makoto ends up accidentally subjugating Forneus instead when he is supposed to only keep him busy.

  5. Ho-ho! Fuji-yan new waifu get! Well it does look like Kawakita isn’t deterred by learning he has two wives already. She even wants to meet them already. Anyways seems they really were close since Fuji-yan used to call her ‘Kei’ while she called him by his given name with no honorifics which can mean that they are very close.

    Looks like Makoto is already getting the hang of his arm since he can move it better and he can use it for high-level spells like Monarch rank Water Phoenix and nonchalantly changing the weather.

    So the expedition is now only a month away. Isn’t that too fast? Well I guess Makoto will be meeting the other heroes again soon. Janet and Geralt will be thrilled. I don’t remember if Leo will also be taking part in this expedition or not. Hrm will Makoto have to travel with Olga? Can’t he just ditch her and make her travel by herself? She’s still not particularly likable and who’d want to travel with her all the way to Symphonia? Anyways are the other countries’ Heroes also taking part in this expedition? Makoto’s only met Max the Wood Hero and Sakurai the Light Hero apart from the ones I previously mentioned. Let’s hope the remaining Heroes don’t turn out to be a bunch of posturing fools.

      We don’t even know the name of the Earth Goddess.

      Also, did anyone notice that Makoto never met a dwarf ? I feel like the author neglected the Earth Country and the dwarves. On a side note, what would be the name of the Destiny Hero ? Something like Destiny Hero-Plasma or Destiny Hero-Dreadmaster ? 😆

    1. The spirit arm definitely seems like a much more stable/consistent power. Although apparently still tough for him to control.

      But regardless, HE CAN FLY! And use instant Monarch rank magic!

      That is a major upgrade! Imagine if he uses it in combat to become far more mobile and to assist in evading attacks. Hold on, can he combine the spell with evade or apply evade to his spells when riding on them? If so that would be awesome. Can already imagine him creating hundreds or thousands of Water Phoenixes and calling the improv spell

      [Water Magic: Water Phoenix Flock]

      on a differnet note though. Way back when Takki-dono mentioned how warriors take mana anc convert it into Aura to enhance their physical attributes. He actually looked into it in order to become a magic swordsman. But he couldn’t pursue it as he had such low mana. Takki-dono now has a stable/constant supply of supposedly infinite mana (sort of a permanent true spirit summoning unlike Rosalie’s pseudo spirit summoning); does that mean Takki-dono can enhance his physical performance with, shall we call it Spirit Aura? Anyway Can he now pursue becoming a magic swordsman?

      1. Oh? That actually really good points, if his arm is still considered by the system as a part of his body skills should work without problem, and the Aura part have also sense, the mother of Lucy do it with spirits if I remember well

      2. It was stated he couldn’t do spirit cladding on his body but he could do Aura. I believe he did it when he jumped off the wall to save Lucy back during the attack on Makkaren. I believe the issue with aura for him was that his mana amount could only last for 5 minutes… he now has (I believe) infinite mana. He would only use the amount necessary. Unless of course there is something different about the mana that means instead of doing Aura he does spirit cladding

    Man, I was worried about how Fuji-yan would happen if things went in this direction. Luckily, Keiko is strong-hearted. I wholly support her wheter she wants to keep staying out of a harem or is going to gun for her childhood friend seriously.

    Well now. Takki finally got a notable personal power boost, didn’t he? Still conditional on Water Spirits, but if they’re around, he can essentially command water.
    Don’t worry, Lucy. Your firepower is the real deal, regardless of your capability as an adventurer (poor, let’s be honest). You’re lacking practice and experience, and you’ll eventually become like your mother. Let’s just hope Takki’s still alive by then.

    Oh yeah…he never did go to Sun Country after that invitation. I think he should introduce Sa-san and Lucy as his girlfriends or even wives when he goes now. …Just in case. Now that Sa-san is a designated Hero herself, it should chase off a good few of the attempted honey traps. Lucy needs to throw out Rosalie’s name to drive off some too.

  14. hmm, he got a nice power up there..
    can’t wait to see his other hand become spirit too but it’s control fire since the other only control water or may be it can do other too since it’s too early to tell…
    i wonder he going to confort that Hag athenna (hate her from saint saiya, campione and ect)

  15. Thanks for the chapter. It’s great to see Makoto growing stronger and casting Monarch-rank magic like it’s nothing. The fact that the Northern Expedition is taking place sooner than expected means that something serious must have happened. Perhaps the Demon Lord will resurrect earlier than estimated? Or maybe the Snake Church is plotting something again?

  16. Thank you for the chapter Reigokai!

    So permanent Spirit arm = free access to water spirit mana. Can he now use it to pursue magic swordsman route? i would! also I wonder how the Divine treasure he has will react to, not only the spirit arm but also, the divinity he has been gifted? Argh! I want more exploration of the magic system!
