WM – Chapter 187: Takatsuki Makoto shoots down

◇Devilkin man Havel’s POV◇

–Listen here, the Moon Oracle is our hope

The personage that will one day guide us devilkin.

As long as there’s life in me, I will protect the Oracle-sama…Furiae-sama.

The devilkins of Laphroaig have been taught this since the time we were born.

Our divine Oracle-sama. 

Even when we were oppressed and we had to sip on muddy water underground, seeing that figure of hers would heal our hearts. 

She was our spiritual support.

But…one day, Furiae-sama was taken away by the Highland Knights.

We were in despair. 

We won’t be able to meet the Oracle-sama again.

There were people who committed suicide thinking this.

Hopeless days continued.

However, Furiae-sama has returned to the Moon Country. 

Aah, I am glad you are okay…Furiae-sama.

Thank you, Moon Goddess Naia-sama.

For letting us see our Oracle-sama once more.

When we met the other day, there was a black cat on her shoulder.

In the Moon Country, there’s no leeway to have familiars. 

It is great to see that she has the leeway now, which is great to see.

It is also envying that it can be together with her the whole time.

If possible, I would like to serve by her side as well.

That’s most likely the same wish for all the devilkin here.

But what’s more important than anything else…is the happiness of Furiae-sama -that point alone is our hope. 

◇◇

The demon lord army is approaching the Moon Country.

My eyes can clearly see the several thousands of wyverns and griffons.

And I could also see the magic tools for bombing. 

If they were to drop those, even our underground facilities won’t be coming out unscathed…

But what must be prioritized most of all…

“Furiae-sama, please run away at once!” (Havel)

I shouted.

“I don’t want to! I cannot leave this place!” (Furiae)

No good! 

The kind Furiae-sama wouldn’t abandon the Moon people and run away.

If push comes to shove, should I have her run far away even if by force? 

But going against the order of Furiae-sama is…

“Makoto, let’s join up with the Sun Knights!” 

“Takatsuki-kun, it is dangerous to stay here!” 

I heard the voices of Furiae-sama’s comrades.

It is true that, instead of acting alone here, it would be safer to join up with the Highland army, regardless of how vexing that feels. 

“My Knight, can’t you do something about it?!” (Furiae)

Looks like Furiae-sama is calling for her Guardian Knight. 

Why isn’t she relying on us?

But as for the knight of Furiae-sama in question…

“Hmm…” (Makoto)

With an absentminded expression, with a voice that you can’t feel a single shred of tension, he looked up at the sky.

What is this man doing?! 

Even though the demon lord army will arrive here in less than a few minutes! 

“Let’s defeat them here.” (Makoto)

“““Eh?”””

The voices of surprise from the comrades of the Guardian Knight at his words.

And I also couldn’t understand what he meant by that.

What can you do against the several thousands of monsters?

“Lucy, come here.” (Makoto)

“Okay, what is it?” (Lucy)

The Guardian Knight man beckons her.

The red haired elf girl walked to his side with unsteady steps.

“Hey, this isn’t the time to be taking things leisure—kya!” (Lucy)

“Lucy, I will be borrowing you for a bit.” (Makoto)

After saying this, the Guardian Knight man held the red haired elf and…kissed her.

(Huh?) 

What’s with this man?! 

Does he even understand what’s happening right now?! 

No good, I can’t leave the protection of Furiae-sama to this guy.

I should grab the Oracle-sama right this instant, and leave to a safe place.

Thinking this, I look at Furiae-sama and her comrade.

“Muuuh.” (Aya)

The brown haired city-looking girl was puffing her cheeks.

“……” 

And Furiae-sama was looking at the Guardian Knight and red haired elf as if jealous.

Furiae-sama? 

Could it be…you…towards that man…?

“Oi! What are you doing at this emergency?!” (Havel)

Angered, I shouted at the man who is kissing a woman carefreely when the demon lord army is approaching.

There’s a limit to how disconnected you can be.

“T-That’s right, Makoto! This is way too sudd—hnn!!” (Lucy)

“Just a bit more, a bit more…” (Makoto)

Despite the elf girl complaining, the Guardian Knight still continued kissing her.

Is he crazy?! 

“You! Do you understand what situation we are in right—-?!” (Havel)

That’s all the words I could say. 

Countless sparks were in standby in front of me

“What…?” (Havel)

I looked around, and there were red lights fading in and out like fireflies. 

“Wa, hot!” (Aya)

“Naah Naah!” 

The city girl and the black cat were waving as if trying to escape from the sparks. 

The air is drying. 

I felt as if bits and pieces of heat were burning my cheeks.

And then, with the sharp senses of a devilkin, I could feel the mana in the air was increasing to an unbelievable extent. 

What in the world is going on…?

“Tch, so hot… Is it…Fire Spirits?” (Furiae)

Furiae-sama mutters this with crossed arms in displeasure. 

“Spirits…?” (Havel)

“Aah, Havel. My Knight is a Spirit User. Well, just watch.” (Furiae)

Furiae-sama responded to me. She pointed at the Guardian Knight man with her chin. 

When I look over there…

[Fireball].” (Makoto)

The name of the spell he spoke out was an elementary rank spell.

A basic spell that a devilkin could use the moment they are born.

Why is he using such a weak spell…?

My question disappeared in the next instant.

…*Zuzuzuzuzu*

Fireballs covered the sky as far as my eye could see. 

Isn’t there more than 10,000? 

What’s…this? 

“Hey, Makoto, why fireball? Wouldn’t the mid rank spell Fire Spear, or the high rank spell Firestorm work fine?” (Lucy)

“Hmm, because it is easier to use.” (Makoto)

“…I see.” (Lucy)

I heard the carefree conversation of the Guardian Knight and the red haired elf.

Could it be that this man activated a spell of this scale all on his own? 

“Look! The demon lord army is getting agitated by this!” (Aya)

Just like the city girl is saying, the demon lord army is breaking formation because of the outrageous spell. 

“Woah there, I won’t be letting you escape. Clear Mind 0%.” (Makoto)

The Guardian Knight man changed his absentminded face into one of an innocent smile.

“Surround and burn them to cinders.” (Makoto)

At the same time as he said that, the tens of thousands of fireballs moved slowly as if enveloping the horde of monsters. 

No, it just looks slow but, in reality, they are surrounding the monsters at frightening speed into a fire cage.

He is controlling these numbers all on his own?

That’s unbelievable.

But I could see with my eyes that the several tens of thousands of fireballs had a mana link with the Guardian Knight man. 

Mana link is a technique to control your magic after you have shot it. 

If you raise your magic proficiency, you can control a great amount of spells with mana link, but…I have never seen one of this scale and amount. 

Gyaaaaaaaa!!

I could hear the screams of the monsters in the sky. Monsters that have been burned to cinders were falling into the ocean one after the other.

“Uwaah… Brutal.” (Furiae)

“Waa, no mercy with Takatsuki-kun.” (Aya)

Furiae-sama and the city girl were looking at that with reluctant gazes. 

But that’s all they did. 

The two of them were accepting this sight as if it were normal.

I…couldn’t say a word.

The monsters were being shot one after the other. 

There were some who had their magic tools for bombing ignited, and would explode in midair. 

This demon lord army is on a scale that could probably bring down a city, but they are being overwhelmed without much they can do. 

This is…the Guardian Knight of Furiae-sama.

It is vexing, but even with several hundreds of devilkins, we wouldn’t be able to replicate what he is doing.

“My Knight! Isn’t that enough?!” (Furiae)

“Right! There’s no need to kiss her anymore, right?!” (Aya)

“That’s not good. We have to synchronize more. Right, Makoto?” (Lucy)

“Ah, uhm…what should I do?” (Makoto)

They were having a carefree exchange, totally contrary to the terrifying spectacle in the sky.

But I could see that he hasn’t cut a single mana link despite him conversing with his comrades, and he continued controlling his magic —that reality made me tremble. 

There’s a Hero like this in Highland?

I now understand why Furiae-sama told us not to go against Highland, even if I hate to admit it. 

And in this way, several thousands of monsters fell to the sea without a single one of them reaching the land of the Moon Country.

◇Takatsuki Makoto POV◇

At the Six Nation Alliance army’s war council. 

“…You are saying you fought an assault unit of the Demon Lord Zagan?” (Yuwein)

The one who said this was the General of the Six Nation Alliance, General Yuwein. 

“Yes! The enemy was planning on bombing us from the air, but Hero Makoto-dono noticed this and crushed them by himself.” (Ortho)

Captain Ortho responded to the question of the General.

“Their numbers?” (Yuwein)

“I am not aware of the exact numbers but, according to the reports, there were more than 5,000.” (Ortho)

“And you are saying he drove them off?” (Yuwein)

“No, wiped them out.” (Ortho)

“…Wiped them out?” (Yuwein)

“The enemy couldn’t even retreat and were defeated by Makoto-dono.” (Ortho)

General Yuwein furrowed his brows and placed a hand on his chin, seemingly thinking about something. 

But he didn’t ask any further than that. 

“And so, what are the casualties on our side?” (Yuwein)

“Zero.” (Ortho)

“…I see. Understood. I will listen to the details later.” (Yuwein)

“Yes sir!” (Ortho)

The report ended with the conversation of General Yuwein and Captain Ortho.

I listened to this without interrupting.

My actions this time around were also against the plans. 

But it looks like the Great Sage-sama secretly ordered him to move on to the next topic, Ortho-san told me that it will most likely be overlooked.

““……””

In the middle of that conversation, there were people who were directing their gazes at me.

The Pope was looking at me with an annoyed expression.

The Destiny Oracle Esther-san -the Destiny Goddess- was looking unamused. 

Gera-san was looking at me with dangerous eyes that don’t lose to those two.

The Great Sage-sama was grinning.

Sakurai-kun was smiling wryly. 

And there’s Princess Sofia who is looking intently at me like a kitten.

I am sorry for worrying you all the time. 

As for the report of the other people, they were all about maintaining their forces. 

But it looks like Zagan’s main forces have begun crossing the sea, and it feels like the war is about to finally begin in full now. There were several points where you could feel the prickliness of the situation.

We will probably be beginning battle against the main forces of the demon lord army in 3 days, is what the General said as he ended the war council.

◇◇

“Oh my, welcome back, Makoto. Aah, I had a good sleep. I recovered a good amount of mana.” (Lucy)

“Takatsuki-kun, good work~.” (Aya)

“Here, Tsui. It is apparently something called dried sardines. Eat.” (Furiae)

“Naah Naah.” 

When I returned to the tent, my party members were having a nap, eating sweets, or giving food to the cat all carefreely. 

By the way, the dried sardines were something Fuji-yan left. 

Is it okay to give dried sardines to cats?

Well, our Tsui is apparently a demonic beast, so it should be fine.

“It seems like our main forces will be clashing with the demon lord army’s main forces soon.” (Makoto)

“““!”””

When I say this, the 3 obviously had their expressions change into a serious one. 

It seems like that atmosphere reached Tsui as well, it corrected its posture.

It is fine for you to just eat and sleep, you know.

“Well then, I will go train.” (Makoto)

“Eh, right now, Makoto?” (Lucy)

“Ortho-san told you to rest, Takatsuki-kun.” (Aya)

Lucy and Sa-san were surprised by this. 

Well, I used some flashy magic just recently, so I can understand where Ortho-san is coming from.

But…

“If I am not training, I just can’t seem to relax.” (Makoto)

Sakurai-kun and the others will soon be fighting the Demon Lord. Is it really okay for me to just pass my sweet time doing nothing?

No, it is not. 

I left the tent while my party members complained.

I went through the campsite at night. 

The small spring that is at the corner of the campsite. 

That is my training location.

I kneeled in front of the spring, held my dagger with both hands, and prayed to Noah-sama.

It is my routine before training.

“Spirit-sans, Spirit-sans.” (Makoto)

I call the Water Spirits as usual.

But they aren’t reacting well.

((…….))

Oops. Looks like they are in a bad mood because I played with the Fire Spirits early today. 

“Sorry, sorry, Spirit-sans.” (Makoto)

I would calm them down, and joke with them to try and better their mood, and passed a bit of time doing that.

It is slow work, but it is an important thing to do if you are a Spirit User. 

I look up at the night sky.

There’s no clouds today, and I could see the stars clearly -the big moon as well.

I could hear the sounds of footsteps approaching me.

To be precise, I have noticed since a while ago, so I know who it is. 

“Need something, Princess?” (Makoto)

“Hey, My Knight, got some time?” (Furiae)

The one who showed up was the Moon Oracle, Furiae-san.

    1. They’ll be the only trope (basically Makoto) in history to have obliterated every advancing assault unit without casualties or escapees.

    1. Because she can’t foresee anything related to Makoto. She likely had a hand in sending him to the island because she wanted to remove any variables in her foresight, but he’s taking the lead.

      1. Got me thinking. She cant see furiae’s future because she’s the oracle of naia, who’s not from that world, right? Doesnt that mean she supposedly cant see the isekai-ed guys’ future?

        Liked by 3 people

      2. I guess it seems she can’t see Furiae’s one because she got divine blessing from Naia-sama, which is an otherworlder. While the other isekai-ed guys followed a goddess thats truly comes from that world

        Liked by 2 people

    2. Because the goddess can’t predict his actions. For a goddess that prides herself as being the best oracle, that must be both humiliating and infuriating at the same time.

      As for the Pope, I can only see him as either a puppet of the snake church or even Isaac himself. No clue how he is remaining hidden from the oracles, but just feels like he is a little too angry that his supposed side is winning. Even to the point jealousy or religous fervor doesnt seem the reason.

      Liked by 7 people

      1. That totally makes sense.
        Makoto and Furiae have been responsible for overcoming all of Isaac plans.
        Furiae sees the future and Makoto works something out to get a better ending.
        And the pope trying to break them apart would work for the best “on the demons side”

      2. Supposedly he’s isaac, it was mentioned that the goddesses cant see the snake church movement, i think. If im not mistaken, eir said that around the fire country arc

        Liked by 2 people

      3. I don’t see how that could be possible. If the Pope is working for the Snake Church or is actually secretly Isaac himself then he would be trying a lot harder to have Makoto killed since they would have firsthand knowledge and experience of all the Snake Church’s plans being wrecked by Makoto. Isaac and the Snake Church already know that an army of 5,000 or 10,000 can’t beat Makoto so if the Pope is Isaac or at least working for the Snake Church then he would have informed his allies that they need way more demons in order to kill Makoto. He wouldn’t send such low numbers against him. The Pope is a shitbag and would probably kill Makoto if he has the opportunity but if he were Isaac or a Snake Church conspirator then he would have been a lot more vehement in convincing the allied nations to kill Makoto when Ira revealed his identity because he’d know just how much damage he can do to their plans. Or at least send way more demons after him.

  1. “And Furiae-sama was looking at the Guardian Knight and red haired elf as if jealous.”
    Yes, Furiae is jealous ! Now, I think that she loves more Makoto than Sakurai.

    Ahahahah ! Makoto destroyed the army by himself again. At this point, I would either stop sending troops to the Moon Country or I would dispatch a powerful demon or an assassin to kill Makoto. If Isaac was the one leading those troops and knew Makoto was in the Moon Country, I bet he would have given up sending any troops right from the start because Makoto foiled his plans so many times.

    If Furiae really loves Makoto and is aware of her feelings, the most efficient move to make him understand her feelings would be to push him down.

    Liked by 2 people

      1. It would actually be funny to imagine that scenario: When the Demons fail to kill Sakurai (problably planned by the Snake Church as their movements can’t be read by the Holy Gods), Isaac rages and sees Makoto as the highest risk factor (even higher than the Light Hero) and plans to kill him at all cost even if it means giving up on killing Sakurai.

        Liked by 2 people

      2. Just_random_rei agreed, it’s bound to be easier to crush him at that moment since the army protecting him is also smaller. Problem is whether isaac can bring more demon army there, since his affiliation is basically from snake church, not demon lord army

        Liked by 2 people

    1. I also think it’s about time the demon army realizes that it is futile to send mobs to the moon country and will either give up or send a powerful assassins but with Sa-san there someone trying to fight them in close quarter combat will be instantly killed.
      She is a bugged character after all

    2. Yeah it’s obvious she loves him. If you think about it sakurai is the first person she met that treated her nicely and wasn’t charmed by her. That’s why she likes him but she’s been going to different places and having new experiences with makato who sees her as her not the oracle 🤷‍♂️

  2. It is possible that Furiae is not actually in love with the Sun hero.
    She did it merely to stay alive.

    But now to actually fall in love with our natural gigolo . . . Makoto

    Liked by 4 people

    1. I think she did, mostly because he was the first person to reach out for her. But I don’t think Sakurai was romantically attracted to her. It’s more like he empathize with her circumstances and there’s also a guilt of the massacre of Laphroaig done by the Sun country Templars, so he’ll do anything he can to help her.That’s why he left her to Makoto to open up her heart. If Sakurai was genuinely desired her he would keep her with him at all cost

      Liked by 4 people

      1. Not only that, the people that she likes end up dying. Sakurai represented her first chance to like someone who wouldn’t easily die.

        Makoto, on the other hand, keeps getting thrown off the deep end and yet…he doesn’t die. It’s happened often enough now that she’s starting to see him as another person that she can like.

        Liked by 3 people

    2. No….. She fell for the kind Sakurai and he probably is her first love but she knew their love or rather her love is unrequited. While having such thoughts subconsciously, she met Makoto, the airheaded gigolo, who unlike Sakurai—who treats fu-chan as a special person —treated her normally, like someone he was friends with. He supported her, saved her and encouraged her and she fell for the natural gigolo.

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Yeah I agree sakurai isn’t necessarily her first love she’s just the first person who treated her with kindness out of her country and isn’t charmed. So naturally she started liking him but it’s not really unrequited because it could work. On the other hand makati sees her as an individual and really looks at her, plus you gotta think about it she’s been going to different places with makato and having new experiences. FYI I’ve read on ahead I could drop some spoilers about their relationship if you want 🤷‍♂️

  4. Haha Makoto felt like he was doing nothing, while in reality he did the most work already. Thanks for the chapter~

    Seems like Furi has decided on something. I think Sakurai wouldn’t mind if she were to fall for Makoto, as he’s likely genuinely wish the best for Furiae. And his might not even be romantic affection in the first place, it might be more of a guilt when the sun knighys wiped out the people of Laphroaig. Sakurai also left her to Makoto to open her heart so it looks like he finally did just that.

    1. Ah, Im sorry, I mean, while the author probably wont implement that just like most other japanese novel, that route isnt completely impossible too. Also seeing how noel decided to treat devilkin without discrimination, furiae will most likely rise onto the throne when Laphroaig rise as a country. That way, even she takes makoto as husband, she can still take sakurai too in guise of political marriage….. ….is what probably happen if this is a fanfict by a 14yrs old girl.

      1. But Noel hasn’t decided to treat devilkins without discrimination. Furi discussed this with Makoto when they were coming to Laphroaig. That, yes, Noel is trying to make reforms in Highland to not discriminate other races and give them rights but pointedly those reforms and rights don’t extend to devilkin. Also Noel was one of the people who supported the Pope’s plan to capture Furi. That’s why Furi doesn’t like Noel.

      2. @Tacos1 She did, bro. Three or four chapter back, after meeting after they arrived at cornet, ortho said that noel did decided to take down the discrimination towards the devilkin and that makoto and furiae needn’t worry about the people there. I can be wrong tho, its like two weeks ago or so lmao.

        And I think furi doesnt like noel since she consider her as highlands royalty and , yes, she did support capturing her. however noel is about the most open minded royalty in highland (at least since the other royalty shown is the scumbag first prince) that she decided it’s okay to not heed to the legends and she was among the ones accepted furi first. Heck she plead to the king abt furi on the snake church attack on highland back then when the moon oracle haters is still hot

    Ok Ira-sama should notice it by now that Makoto isn’t too weak that he doesn’t have any string of fate but just, too out of this world that she can’t predict what he will do. Well that or she’s just afraid of Eir-sama that she won’t interfere with him lel

    It is fine for you to just eat and sleep, you know.”
    LOL That cat XD
    I wonder if he isnt Naia or a servant from her? It appeared almost after Furi join the team.

    To be precise, I have noticed since a while ago, so I know who it is.
    “Need something, Princess?” (Makoto)
    “Hey, My Knight, got some time?” (Furiae)
    The one who showed up was the Moon Oracle, Furiae-san.

    Time to complete the route of Furiae? Take that flag!!!!!! Well for sure he will screw up but maybe she will ask him to stay with her at least even after the war?
    The brother of Sophia should be the next king in the water country so that means that he can marry with Furiae and become the king in her lands right? I mean is almost a given that they will rebuild her country. Will that mean that the legal wife will be Furiae then?
    Thanks for the chapter!!

  10. This chapter was sweet! So far, froze 10,000 or so monsters and killed them, 0 deaths. Kissing Lucy and burned up several thousands of monsters in the air, 0 deaths. So far, what has the rest of the army been doing? The rest of the harem is getting jealous and then some. I still hate cliffhangers, but this was too sweet. I wonder if he can synchronize with two or more at the same time? Think of the possibilities! There is something strange about that Black cat. Furiae is about to confess and what else can happen? Thanks for the chapter, Reigokai.

  11. The Pope’s and Ira’s unamused faces fill me with glee. The Pope is a piece of shit religious zealot so seeing the Apostle of an Evil God producing such amazing results must be driving him crazy. Meanwhile Ira clearly sent Makoto to the Moon Country because she thought he was too weak to do anything and her predictions showed that nothing would really happen there so for Makoto to wipe out 2 armies sent there despite her predictions saying nothing would happen must not sit well with her. Especially that second army very clearly wasn’t even supposed to have been there since Ira never prophesized and said they would be there.

    Meanwhile Great Sage is highly amused, General Yuwein is tired and given up after hearing what Makoto’s done and Geralt is probably one incident away from breaking formation and traveling to the Moon Country to meet Makoto.

    So Makoto did actually remember that to use fire spirits he needs to actually kiss Lucy and not just sync with her. Of course Lucy wanted to continue making out with him. Anyways now Makoto has beaten a total of 15,000 demons by himself before the actual war has even begun and at least 5,000 of them were directly killed by Makoto with fire magic so he should have leveled up from that.

    So Makoto has now synced with Furi and Lucy. Will there be another army thrown at him so Makoto has the opportunity to also sync with Sa-san so he can cast Fist?

    Oh I hope that Furi showing up at the end there is so she can confess to Makoto. That boy is dense as hell and thinks Furi is dating Sakurai so the only way he’ll realize Furi has feelings for him is if she outright tells him and/or pushes him down.

  12. Achievements keep racking up even when he’s sitting in the middle of nowhere. Technically, stealing the march on other heroes is exactly what Noah asked him to do.

    Wonder if they’re gonna send any more? It’d be a nice assistance to the war effort if he helped thin out the crowd for Sakurai a bit.

    Speaking of, I think this is an official F for the Sakurai-Furiae ship. It was never too likely, but I still prefer it more. Further scenes might swing me the other way, but as it is, this is a sad development for me. Wonder if they can sync now…

    1. Yeah, I already thought that the ship would eventually sink the moment Author-san said that he intended to make Furi as the first introduced heroine in his twitter or LN commentary (you know what that implies), but officially confirming it in this chapter helps people that don’t know that.

  13. *“Woah there, I won’t be letting you escape. Clear Mind 0%.” (Makoto)*

    I assume that is a typo, and should be 100%?
    It would be amusing if Makoto actually let Clear Mind fall away completely, he would freak out pretty badly.

    1. Spirits respond better when you are completely open with your emotions. Noah taught him that ages ago. And he’s using fire spirits this time so clear mind 0% makes sense for the power boost.

    2. That’s not a typo. Clear Mind actually hinders his connection to the spirits, but opening himself up to them makes the spirits happy and makes it easier to ask for their help. So if he want to use Spirit Magic’s full potential, he needs to disable Clear Mind altogether. But during this state, it was more likely for him to drastically influence the spirits through his emotion and can cause trouble (refer to vs Geralt chapter).

    3. Thanks to everyone for pointing out the Spirits, which I hadn’t thought about.

      With 0% Clear Mind, I would think massacring thousands of beings would make him hesitate, or the recent Lucy kiss would make him flustered.

  14. We’re all know, that there is a lot of stuff going on, like netorare and etc.
    But there is just one question that bothers me the most.
    Tsui. Transform. Catgirl. When?

    Liked by 3 people

    1. Well something like that hasn’t happened as per even the most recent (untranslated) chapters, however there are already beast girls in the world, like Nina. I don’t expressly remember any cat girls, but they should exist. But it is true that Makoto’s harem is lacking in catgirls. Makoto skipped over demi-human straight to monster-girl LOL.

    2. Spoilers are future things that WILL happen. I merely told you your theory HASN’T happened… yet. Therefore I didn’t spoil anything. I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if it eventually does in as-yet unwritten chapters in the future. The story is actively being released after all, and I know know what will happen as far as currently written. Besides I sadly need to rely on MTLs for now for that. Proper translation is far better.

      Also one person’s comments ARE spoilers, but they wrote them as their theory. And MAYBE they only guessed this. But you aren’t truly spoiled as long as you don’t know who is theorizing, and who is stating something true… therefore I won’t name them.

      1. No, people define spoilers differently.

        Confirming or denying something has happened still tells someone about how a story goes-and so I would say that is a spoiler because it establishes one thing that will absolutely not happen.

        For me, anything that brings information that shouldn’t be known to the reader yet is a spoiler (with the point of contention being what the line for “shouldn’t” is, but that’s technicalities not relevant here). If it’s a part of the story that hasn’t been translated and put here, it should be treated like it doesn’t exist.

    1. Interesting thing to say. Too bad I don’t think the site’s comments (via wordpress) support the spoiler tag. I’ve read ahead but I can’t confirm or deny a thing.

  16. Makoto has left no survivors right? What if the demons start suspecting they pulled a fast one and Sakurai is a decoy? That would be interesting to see the demons suddenly start redirecting forces to Makoto

    1. Without spoiling I’ll only say… the demons are indeed pulling something crafty. There is more than a straightforward attack as expected.

  17. Thanks for the chapter. I suppose the Furiae x Makoto pairing is set in stone. All that remains is for her to confess her feelings, since there’s no way in Hell Makoto will notice them on his own. Him casually shooting down the air troops with fire magic, and the pope and Ira’s annoyed expressions were also a joy to read.

    Another obligatory other person view of Makoto’s OP-ness

    Furi is definitely going to enter the harem right? Way to go Makoto! You’re about the only person who can make her happy after all

  19. At this point i imagine makoto as that niche yet powerful character when placed in th right environment with his precies yet nuke level aoe damage he can dish out
    He’s really compatible when he’s up against large army or if you need him as a damage burst character but that’s it
    His basic stats are shit (except for his magic proficiency) so anyone with a hero level stat can kill him
    That is why someone like gerarlt, sakurai, or his female companions can do it if they want to
    I’m loving this series even more because of the balance in th characters power

    1. He WAS a niche character that was powerful in the right environment, but since he got his Spirit Arm he is just powerful whatever the environment is good or not.

    “Woah there, I won’t be letting you escape. Clear Mind 0%.” (Makoto)
    The Guardian Knight man changed his absentminded face into one of an innocent smile.
    “Surround and burn them to cinders.” (Makoto)

    I think that if the ennemies could see and ear him at that moment they would have completely freaked out! x)
    Because someone speaking of massacre with an innocent smile is way more frightening than with an expressionless face. XD
    That’s the cue if they didn’t realised it earlier that Makoto is missing some things in the head.

    1. Btw, I wonder what level is the MC.

      I lost count of how many big ass large armies of high rank monsters he wiped. No matter how little his status grow, him still being below average while being one of the highest level humans wouldn’t be funny even as a joke.

  23. It’s a sad day when your supposedly infallible fortunetelling is proven fallible. Ira is really underselling Makoto’s ability to react and adapt combined with his general carelessness. She can certainly put him where she thinks is safe, but nowhere is really safe when you put a wildcard of his sort there.

  25. It’s probably just as well Makoto started out with Water Magic. If he had Fire Magic instead and went the Spirit User route, he’d be unquestionably OP damn near immediately. Considering that Fire Spirits love rowdy situations, that’d mean in a fight he’d be constantly getting stronger rather than having time limit with Water Spirits who mainly love playing around and tranquil situations, necessitating a quick solution to his fights. He’d be basically Rosalie 2.0, just with much better fine control.
