WM – Chapter 191: Takatsuki Makoto resolves himself

Sponsored Chapter!


“At this rate, the Light Hero will lose his life.” (Esther) 

“Huh?!” (Makoto)

I raised my voice reflexively.

Why is it turning out like that?! 

Wasn’t it a winning war?! 

“What’s the meaning of this?! Why Sakurai-kun?!” (Aya)

“No way…the Light Hero-sama…?” (Lucy)

Sa-san screams and Lucy spaced out. 

Furiae-san still had a pale face.

“Please explain, Esther-sama.” (Ortho)

Captain Ortho’s voice was stiff.

“…That’s…” (Esther)

Oracle Esther speaks after a bit of silence. 

There’s the Oracles of the Goddesses at her back with Princess Noel as the forefront. 

“…Someone has taken the place of Demon Lord.” (Esther)

Taken their place?

A Demon Lord?

My comrades and I were shocked by this.

“Spirit User-kun, looks like Zagan has passed on the Demon Lord spot to his own son. Not just his blood, but his power as well.” 

The Great Sage-sama said this annoyed.

Her face is pale, and rather than saying she is in a bad mood, it is more like she isn’t feeling well.

“Great Sage-sama, you have returned to Symphonia, huh.” 

“You don’t seem to be feeling well. Are you okay?” 

“I ended up like this after I pushed myself to return. But to think he would pass on his Demon Lord power… That’s why he was weakened, huh.” 

“Is passing on the Demon Lord position something that happens often?” (Makoto)

“No, from what I know…it hasn’t happened once in 1,000 years.” 

Then, there’s no way to predict that would happen, huh…

(Makoto, demons, specially Demon Lord class ones, can live several thousands of years. For the people of the mortal realm, this may be a rare occurrence, but in the eyes of the gods, this is a pretty regular thing.) (Noah)

Eh?

Then, the Destiny Goddess should have seen that coming.

I made dubious eyes at Esther-san, and she averted her gaze.

Oi oi, that’s not cute at all.

Do your job properly, Destiny Goddess-sama.

“Destiny Oracle, do you have a plan?” 

As if reacting to my sentiments, the Great Sage-sama asks her. 

“…The Six Nation Alliance’s main forces are currently in battle against the Beast King. It is 300,000 vs 300,000, but the enemy has set a barrier that weakens the Divine Protection of Holy Gods, and they are pouring it on full at the Light Hero. Even with my God Eyes, I can’t see anything in detail… Damn it!” (Esther)

At the end, she said something unsuitable for an oracle and slammed her fists on the desk.

“Can’t you call for reinforcements? If I remember correctly, Geralt-sama’s Northern Sky Knights and the Crimson Knights of General Tariska should be closeby.” (Ortho)

“Because of the interference with the transmission magic, we have no means to tell them the information. We have already sent messengers, but it seems like they will take some time to arrive.” (Noel)

“How can this be…?” (Ortho)

The one who responded to Captain Ortho was Princess Noel.

Princess Noel’s voice was trembling maybe due to her uneasiness. 

“We will immediately send reinforcements to General Yuwein and Sakurai-dono. Oi! Call all the wyvern and pegasus riders! Foot soldiers will be on standby! I will entrust the command here to someone later!” (Ortho)

Captain Ortho was giving orders to the lieutenant knight. 

His tone was rough maybe due to his hurry .

“I will rest for a bit and return to the battlefield too. Moving in daytime is going to be difficult though… Destiny Oracle, how much time do we have?”

“…The Light Hero won’t be able to survive the war tonight.” (Esther)

“N-No way!” (Noel)

Princess Noel raises her voice in desperation at the words of Oracle Esther.

When I look back, I see Furiae-san looking down without saying anything for a while now.

“Princess, do you see something with your Destiny Magic?” (Makoto)

“…I can see Ryosuke being eaten by a whole ton of monsters.” (Furiae)

“Sorry.” (Makoto)

I shouldn’t have asked.

This is bad. There’s no good piece of information at all.

“I-It is because the Evil God Apostle and the Moon Oracle are present! It is because we are shouldering such accursed beings that a situation like this has occurred. It is impossible for the Divine Protection of the Sun Goddess-sama to run out. They are the ones who have betrayed us! There’s no doubt they were the ones who leaked the information to the demon lord army! Capture them at once and burn them at the stake, Captain Ortho!” 

The one who said something outrageous was the Pope. 

Looks like he is panicking quite a lot from the fact that the Light Hero might die. 

“This is not the time for that…Your Holiness. The Water Country’s Hero and the Moon Oracle have nothing to do with this. But there’s someone in the Demon Lord army who can fool my Clairvoyance… Of that, there’s no doubt.” (Esther)

“Wonder about that! Your Clairvoyance cannot be relied on anymore, Esther-dono!” 

“Kuh!” (Esther)

The Pope who seemed to be in good relations with the Destiny Oracle has now turned thorny. 

This is not the time to be thinking about that right now.

“Makoto-dono! I will be heading to the Light Hero-dono now to provide reinforcements! Let’s go together with the wyvern riders!” (Ortho)

Captain Ortho was finishing the formation of the reinforcements as he listened to what we were saying.

That’s Captain Ortho for you.

[Will you join Captain Ortho in providing reinforcements for the Light Hero?]

Yes 

No

RPG Player asks. 

(A choice showing up here, huh…) (Makoto)

“How long would it take to reach Sakurai-kun from here?” (Makoto)

“Normally, a whole day. But this time around, it is an emergency. We will be pushing the wyverns and the pegasus to their limits, and we are assuming we will arrive in half a day.” (Ortho)

Slow.

That’s how I felt. 

There’s a high chance Sakurai-kun is losing his life tonight. 

Then, taking half of a day is way too late.

“I will head there with a different method.” (Makoto)

“““Eh?”””

A number of people react to what I said.

“Lucy, I have a request.” (Makoto)

“Eh, Makoto? M-Me?” (Lucy)

“Takatsuki-kun…?” (Aya)

I face Lucy and Sa-san who were listening to the conversation a while ago uneasily. 

“Please use Teleport to bring me to the place of Sakurai-kun.” (Makoto)

“Is that possible?!” (Ortho)

Captain Ortho reacts to my words.

But Lucy herself shook her head with a pale face.

“T-That’s impossible! I haven’t gone to that place, and using Teleport to a super duper long distance like that is impossible unless it is Mama!” (Lucy)

“Now that you mention it, Rosalie-san isn’t participating, right?” (Makoto)

“The Crimson Witch-dono isn’t participating in this war. We sent a request for assistance to the Kanan Village, but she wasn’t present…” (Ortho)

She did say that she would be training on the moon.

Is she there?

Is she not gonna come? 

But we can’t go relying on people that are not present. 

“Please, Lucy. Even if it doesn’t work, please help us out here.” (Makoto)

“……But I don’t know if it will work or not… No, got it! I will try!” (Lucy)

Lucy didn’t seem confident at first, but it seems like she is willing to do it now. 

She switches gears fast.

“Lucy-dono, if that’s possible, us as well.” (Ortho)

“Don’t, Captain Ortho. I have looked after that red haired elf, but the chances of her failing are higher. The only ones she would succeed with are most likely the Spirit User-kun there and the Fire Country’s Hero. In order to teleport someone, they need to know them well. You can’t just do that with anyone.” 

“…I see. Understood. Then, I will be heading there on wyverns as planned. Makoto-dono, let’s meet up there.” (Ortho)

“Understood, Captain Ortho.” (Makoto)

Our plan has been decided.

“Lucy, do it.” (Makoto)

“Yeah. Can someone show me a map?” (Lucy)

“Here, Lucy-dono.” 

When Lucy says this, a subordinate of Captain Ortho swiftly gives her a map.

“Where’s the place of the battlefield?” (Lucy)

“Here. The coast area of Dannet in the Commercial Country of Camelon. The landmark is the Naido Hill…” 

“I haven’t gone there before, so I can’t picture the location we are going. Tell me the direction and distance only.” (Lucy)

“That method requires a heavier cost of mana though… It is quite the distance, you know?” 

“It is okay. I have mana to spare.” (Lucy)

Lucy’s words were reliable. 

I am truly glad she is my party member. 

“Makoto, I have never been to the battlefield where the Light Hero-sama is at. That’s why I don’t think I will be able to send you to the precise location. No, there’s no doubt there will be a discrepancy.” (Lucy)

“Got it. I will manage somehow with that.” (Makoto)

I nodded at the words of Lucy. 

“Then, here I go.” (Lucy)

Lucy holds her staff tightly with both hands.

I then feel a massive surge of mana.

A chant was being weaved from the voice of Lucy.

Destiny Goddess who resides in heaven. I pray to you. Please grant us this miracle…” (Lucy)

Teleportation is a gold element space spell.

The one who governs that is the Destiny Goddess, Ira-sama.

I glance at Esther-san.

She noticed my gaze and directed an awkward look at me. 

Can Ira-sama increase our success rate? 

(That’s not possible, Makoto. The current Ira has dropped her mana to human levels, and doesn’t have Divinity. She can’t cause miracles.) (Noah)

I see. 

Even though she is closeby. 

While we were having that exchange, magic circles began to appear one after the other in midair. 

The mana in the air trembles. 

I felt like the ground was also shaking.

“Ooh… What unbelievable mana.” 

“I can’t believe this… This is not mana that a single mage should be able to control.” 

I heard people saying that. 

According to Lucy, her mana has been increasing more and more lately.

Is she still in her growth period? 

My mana has stopped at 4 though.

Isn’t there way too much of a disparity here?

“My Knight…be careful.” (Furiae)

“I pray for your success, Hero Makoto.” (Sofia)

“Thanks.” (Makoto)

Furiae-san and Princess Sofia on the other side of the projection wished me luck.

“Makoto-sama… I leave Ryosuke-san in your hands.” (Noel)

“Got it.” (Makoto)

Princess Noel was holding both hands together as if praying. 

“Lu-chan, do your best. Takatsuki-kun, I will catch up to you later.” (Aya)

“No, please stay with Princess and Lucy, Sa-san. It would leave this place with too little manpower.” (Makoto)

“Hmm, I see. Got it. Leave this place to me! Be careful, okay?” (Aya)

I nodded lightly at the response of Sa-san. 

“Here I go, Makoto.” (Lucy)

“Alright.” (Makoto)

Lucy’s red hair was waving and shining lightly. 

Her hair was waving not from the wind but the raging mana. 

That figure of hers was reminiscent of the Crimson Witch.

“[Teleport]!” (Lucy)

The moment the voice of Lucy resonated in my ears, her spell activated, and I was enveloped in light. 

That ethereal sensation lasted for just a few seconds, I think.

I was wrapped in a strange floaty feeling within this pure white space.

I lost track of what was up and down, and I felt as if I had been thrown in a space that expanded endlessly. 

The next instant, my feet touched the ground.

My view opens up.

“Cold!” (Makoto)

A massive amount of water hits my face like a shower. 

It is raining. 

And a big one that feels like a storm.

“Water Magic: [Water Dragon].” (Makoto)

I use water magic to control the movement of the rain.

That’s how I somehow managed to see in front of me. 

“Eh?” (Makoto)

The moment I opened my eyes, the first thing I felt was that something was off.

It is dark.

Despite not even being noon yet. 

There’s no way it would be this dark as if it were right before dawn.

Could it be that time passed from the failure of the Teleport?

No, that’s time travelling. 

It is a completely different spell.

I look around.

I couldn’t notice immediately due to this downpour…but what was responsible for this off feeling of mine was above. 

I look up at the sky. 

(…So that’s the cause.) (Makoto)

What was covering the sky were dark clouds that stretched on as far as the eye can see.

  2. Thanks for the chapter~

    So that’s what it is. Well Zagan basically becomes a dummy target lel.
    So Ira-sama can’t see the detail because the Demons lowered the Divine Blessing and not because there’s someone special, huh. Well, a little prediction oftenly misses.

    “What was covering the sky were dark clouds that stretched as far as the eye can see”
    Well, Makoto, didn’t you do it too but with fireball, even more, twice? xD If its a storm then Makoto should be able to do something about it
    Wait. Dark sky. No sun. So that’s why they say that Sakurai-kun would die.

  3. I had this random thought while reading this chapter. I feel like it would be really really cool if when the pope was saying it’s all makoto’s fault and stuff makoto actually get pissed. like for the first time in the story he gets super pissed basically tells everyone else to shut up and immediately gets lucy to teleport. like idk have some character development him getting truly serious and pissed when his friend sakurai actually might die. like idk maybe loses control over his mana and ppl around him get surprised/suppressed. idk i just feel like that kind of character development would be really sick.

    1. That would definitely be cool to some extend. Unfortunately his Clear Mind practically erased his emotion. His personality won’t let him do it anyway lol.
      If only he noticed the usage of Clear Mind more late, then that situation could be possible to happen

      1. It will be really interesting to see whether eh realizes that his clear mind is having major consequences. sure he’s clear minded here, so he’s able to make rational judgements, but he should be concerned that he doesn’t seem to be that concerned about his friend.

    2. Other MCs character development:
      Calm ==> Anguryyy 😡
      Makoto:
      This is probably gonna KILL ME!!! ==> This is probably gonna kill me lol.

      RAMPAGE WOOSH WOOSH [Unconcious] [Water Giant Summoned]
      to
      “Aight hang on let me try something”
      [Creates a hurricane]

  4. So this what happen when they rely to much on sakurai.

    Man, i wish i can kill that stupid pope.
    For the first time the fate oracle is getting an awkward face.

    So i was wrong that was Zagan, he wasn’t an Imposter but he just passed his power to his son.

    Man makoto’s saving the hero, and breaking their plans again.

    1. And I almost forgot about alex who is the hired hero of Highland, where the fu*k is that guy why is not helping.
      It gives some hints that guy will get in the way of makoto.

      Liked by 2 people

      1. Right. I thought he is there as a substitution of Ira-sama’s divinity so anyone won’t notices that she’s on a constant descend. And the fact that he obeyed her words rather than Pope should strengthen that theory. But this time even Ira-sama seems worried a lot that makes me again question Alex’s true identity.

        Liked by 1 person

      2. I think you’re all overthinking things too much. The Pope is indeed a sorta redundant political-religious figure, related to the fact that state and church are separated in Highland; story-wise is something that the author did to show-off their power.
        Alex is definitely part of Ira, he’s there to hold her power so it’s not noticeable her perpetual descent, there might be a bit more but it’s mostly that, that’s the reason he only listen to Esther/Ira and no-one else. She might not actually be able to separate him to much from herself (and I believe there were both on Highland anyway), and given that he was likely created (or at least possessed) by Ira’s divinity, he won’t be able to help in a place were the Holy Gods power’s weakened.

        Like

      3. @Alemag, i hope your right, and we are over thinking it.

        But i try to analyze it, the pope and alex actions are scheming something.

        First the of a pope should not use voice based on the characteristics of the person. What he did was just accuse furi and makoto based on his perspective evil or calamity , without the help of others equal authority and reputation makoto and furi is dead by now. But since his has a protection of hero and oracle so his safe. My point is that he should be in a neutral state to everyone because of his position and power.

        And second alex existence made me suspect about him with stated in that Iras divine power is lowered. Since her power can be lowered then whats the purpose of alex. To hide her. I think not, its not simple as that because when Goddess Eir use his eyes to find Ira it didn’t take a few chapters to find her. It didn’t block her existence. And last the power of alex that relates to holy gods is the most suspicious because it stated in few chapters back that gods can’t give divine power to humans besides divine protection as Eir tell to makoto about the divine power of his arm. So how did alex and his power is related to them. Makes even more suspicious that either alex is a god or demi-god. Cause it state that gods can’t Descent too long or force Descent to mortal realm so my guess is alex demi – god. What other reasons for me to assume.

        This just my theory. 😁✌️

    2. And last the pope won’t let makoto go to the Highland even so much that he’s rejecting an oracle. He gives a vibes of evil plan on Highland for makoto. He’s planning something fishy.

      1. Actually the Pope is nothing I don’t even know why he exists, Usually in our word is the maximum authority of the faith but here we have the Oracles that speak directly with the Gods and the heros that are under the Gods command……What is that old geezer compared with them ?.

      2. Y’know what, you’re right. Why even is there a Pope? None of the other goddess’ faiths seem to have a Pope. I can only assume the position even exists because of some random crap the humans came up with like the whole thing about how Oracles need to remain virgins.

      3. Yeah i also wondering why. There’s a pope in Highland County while in other
        5 countries have, so suspicious to the point that i think he is the mastermind in the sister’s in church not being a virgin like great sage said.

      4. For a while now ive felt the pope has been illogically angry with Makoto. Sure i get the whole “evil goddess” apostle angle, but even then it felt like he has dialed it to 11 when a simmering 6 or 7 seemed more appropriate. So my thought is that the pope is actually Isaac or maybe even a puppet for him. The first prince is another that seems suspicious as well. Both have access to the sensitive information and ability to screwed the alliance over time and time again. So just feels like either or both are working for the other side.

      5. Well first remember when hero Abel fought he had 3 companions: Great sage, the Jonny elf dude and Anna the healer priest which by the way was in love with him.. in the present their are represented by the great sage by herself, Jonny in the scarlet witch, and the pope in the role of Anna faction. They call Noel the incarnation but she is not the head of the Anna-church. Why the pope hate Fury and Makoto (my humble opinion) first the late sempai of Makoto went and kill all the hero’s and betrayed humanity he was crazy right so maybe Makoto will do the same. as for Fury well if you remember when Noel had the chat wit Makoto about after the war, he said to her he has someone waiting for him so he must go. To which Noel say little angry: Are you acting like hero Abel…. later she explain how hero Abel after the war went looking after someone most likely a woman. Since Noel say don’t you think is cruel to left a beautiful woman in love to go search for another…. maybe the church still holds the grudge against said women.. perhaps said woman was the calamity witch (also a big chance it is Noah) either way the grudge against those who stole the affection of hero Abel and the futuro of the church being the center of power

        Like

      6. @Alaszero: I think the Pope hates Makoto and Furi for much simpler reasons: that he’s a racist and religious zealot. He hates Furi because of her “unclean” demonkin blood and he hates Makoto because he’s a “heathen” who worships an “Evil God”. I think I remember he even tried to convince Lucy and Sa-san to convert and join his religion and the only reason he hasn’t done that with other Heroes is because they are already believers of other Holy Goddesses who would not approve of having their followers stolen from them by somebody who is ostensibly on the same side as them.

  5. “It is 30,000 vs 30,000.” It seems a bit too low. I think it should be 300,000 vs 300,000. I checked and it is written 30万 in the raw.
    Ira seems to give a lot of ponkotsu vibe in this chapter. She is completely useless and unreliable.
    Dark clouds ? I don’t think those clouds are normal and they are probably here to block the sunlight, so Sakurai will just be a strong warrior. He is no longer invincible. The son of Zagan will be able to kill him easily.
    It is finally the turn of Makoto. Will he use his spirit arm to disperse the clouds ?

  6. Yup, Pope is garbage. Why does he even have a position in the church?
    I think that the gods should have him deposed.
    Anyways, Ira’s kinda useless as a destiny goddess isn’t she?
    I feel like the reason she descended is because she’s probably on the verge of being replaced by the Moon Goddess as the Destiny Goddess and she’s trying to keep her position at all costs.

    1. Well Noah-sama and Eir-sama discussed about it that Ira-sama seems contemplating the Lost of the Human War a thousand years ago so that she descends to prevent it from happening again.

      Well i think that’s her mistake, since recently Noah-sama said that her power is now not on a god level because of the constant descend. Her prediction accuracy should be decreasing by a lot because of that.
      Seems she is for some reason getting desperate to win the human war that she chose the less accurate but fast transferring info than the slow but much more accurate info (by descending into Esther-sama everytime she got a new prediction. That’s definitely considerably slower). By doing that she could also getting the eyes of the other gods since she’s descending too much that they thought it could be considered as interfering with the world’s fate directly.

      1. Not sure it is a question of power per say, but perspective. Consider something like an astronaut in space. They can see the whole Earth at once but they can’t see details. A person on the ground can see all the details of a much smaller area. If you think of Ira’s ability to see the future as a lot like that. Her predictions are much clearer, but she’s loosing the big picture in exchange. And the Demon’s side blindsided her. Her predictions where taken into account as part of their plan.

    “I will rest for a bit and return to the battlefield too. Moving in daytime is going to be difficult though… Destiny Oracle, how much time do we have?” (Ortho) -> (Great Sage)

    “Don’t, Captain Ortho. I have looked after that red haired elf, but the chances of her failing are higher. The only ones she would succeed with are most likely the Spirit User-kun there and the Fire Country’s Hero. In order to teleport someone, they need to know them well. You can’t just do that with anyone.” -> (Great Sage)

    This useless goddess! What the heck is your purpose then?! I feel bad for Furiae, even if she does not like Sakurai, its still gruesome seeing people you getting killed in destiny visions. No wonder she’s attracted to Makoto, he’s always calm and decisive no matter what the circumstances. I could see why some destiny users might be mentally unstable if they see these visions too much.

  10. Hmm, could be that the demon lord son of Zagan is like Makoto and the others so that’s why Ira can’t see the future, could even be that a god from the enemy faction do something like what Ira do. I really want to understand well the future sight of Ira, she say that she can’t see the future of things from outside the world and yet she can see the actions of Sakurai and his death, so of work that? I can understand the situation with Makoto and the Moon Goddess, but with the rest no.

      1. My point is, she said that thing from outside the world she can’t see their future, so even though Sakurai is under the protection of Sun Goddess, she still shouldn’t be able to see his future, and in the case she can see it because he is under the protection of her, that’s mean she can’t see the future of the rest of students, however that part isn’t explained.

      2. Yeah i was thinking it a lot, why others heroes can see their fate but makoto’s is an exception. For example sakurai and aya. Destiny and moon oracle can see their actions or fate but makoto is not.

      3. I am fairly sure its due to RPG player skill and not due to being Noah’s follower. That same unique skill that let him see goddesses without needing a filter or mosaics and why he wasn’t charmed by Noah. Noah even said it being the case on several occasions.

        The side effect is that Makoto lacks a strong sense of danger to himself since the skill is like him seeing the world through a game’s perspective.

      like from outside world she can see million fate thread of all over the world, while she inside the world she can see few fate thread but can see it more clearly?

      if you wondering why she can she sakurai specifically then it probably because light hero have thousand fate threads around him (from furie perspective chapter if i remember it clearly)

    3. She didn’t say that. She can see every holy gods religion follower’s future.

      Esther can’t see Makoto’s future are probably the combination effect of Makoto’s hidden effect of [RPG Player] skill and his faith to Noah.

      Also, remember that Furi can’t see both Makoto’s future and fate thread too.

      1. We know that because of the influence of opposite gods they can see the thing, but because she have see the actions of the demons I think that even though she can’t see all, she can see things of them to some extent.

      2. Yes she can, but it’s limited.

        For example, she can’t see who stabbed Sakurai doesn’t she? What she sees is the scene where Sakurai was stabbed instead.

        She sees the result through the eyes of her /holy god’s followers, that’s why in here she can only sees the future where Sakurai died, not the action taken by demons.

      3. Hm, about the part of Sakurai, the first thing she do was so suspect that Furiae killed him because she can’t see his future, not suspect of a demon, that mean that she can see the demons, I mean, probably not all his actions, but in the case of this vision she should have saw if it was a demon instead of a black silloute like I assume she did. She’s also was surprised that someone in the enemy camp can obstruct his future sight, so this is clearly not normal, could be that now that she is in the mortal plane with his powers shaved his future sight is less effective.

    Welp, the demon army did well to cover the sun and weaken Sakurai-kun. Unfortunately, they set up the best possible terrain for makoto to go wild. Go get’em airhead gigolo!

  12. Oh OK I thought that when they heard that Sakurai was in danger of dying I thought that it meant he had already gotten attacked. Instead it’s that he’s been led to a trap and him and his forces are currently fighting but with comms down for the most part he can’t call for reinforcements and the demons can just keep sending fodder to wear him down until he dies. Also Zagan apparently passed his title and power to his child and that’s why Sakurai was able to kill him so easily. He used himself as bait to trick the humans into thinking they won and thus they lowered their guards in exchange for his life.

    Ira you absolute ponkotsu goddess. She over relied on her visions that didn’t show any danger despite how she should have known that the enemy side can block her vision like what happened in Great Keith yet she didn’t even stop to consider that they might try to pull the same thing here. No, she just sees that she isn’t getting any visions about any impending danger so she automatically assumes that that means everything is hunky dory. I’m in favor of her getting demoted and replaced as Destiny Goddess with Naia. Hell she can’t even raise the success rate of Lucy’s teleport spell despite Lucy praying to her within earshot. Y’know it’s probably also her fault that comms were disrupted in the first place. They said the location of the signal amplifiers were a national secret and only certain people may know about it like say a Country Designated Hero. Most of us have the theory that Ira put her Divinity in Alex so she can hide how she is continuously possessing Esther and I seem to recall that it was mentioned that Divinity is normally dangerous or harmful to a human so if Alex has Ira’s Divinity then it might have eaten his personality and turned him into a hollow puppet that could probably be easily manipulated and the demons have taken advantage of it to get him to go to the signal amplifiers to destroy them. Also she apparently knew that Demon Lords could pass their powers and titles to others but she didn’t stop to think of the possibility that Zagan would do that.

    On another note, congratulations Makoto, it seems he actually raised his mana stat. I seem to recall it used to be 3. Now it’s a whopping 4 <.<

    Well I guess all those rain clouds blocking the sun are the product of the new Demon Lord. They're probably meant to counter Sakurai's increased strength while in the sun. Too bad that that just gives Makoto the perfect playing field to bork up their plans.

    Like

    1. As long as Makoto reaches water magic proficiency to 1000+ or even 3000+ I would be content. However, knowing Makoto if he had the choice to become the next demon lord, he would probably take it if he kept his spirit magic.

      His RPG player skill could evolve like Rimuru’s adviser skill and actually became his harem member “last boss” haha.

      The question is if the dark clouds have any effect on Makoto since he’s Noah’s follower and uses spirit magic? It is a debuff for holy god followers, a sort of buff for demon god followers. Where do the titan gods fall on this scale?

      Like

      1. I don’t think the dark clouds are some sort of magic debuff. I think they’re just normal rain clouds. Sakurai gains a buff from being in the sun so having the demons induce rain clouds to block out the sun to depower Sakurai should be their number one priority. They have no reason to waste time doing who knows what sort of complex ritual debuffing everybody else since they aren’t a match for the demons. The other heroes are strong but they can still be taken out with conventional methods. Besides with Makoto’s magic proficiency he would have easily been able to tell if the dark clouds were more than just rain clouds. All he says is that there are a hell of a lot of clouds.

  13. Thanks for duo chapter.

    So this is theory, base on pretty much most of the events Makoto had to face he saves the day but each time almost had him dying or incapacitated. So I am thinking this is no different. Since there is a lot of water he might do some water substitution jutsu with his friend. And it might actually be Makoto that got stabbed and get hurt. I mean he has pretty much got full brunt of damage in most of the major problems this one is no different. A part of me want to see him go down saving his friend Sakurai, of course not dying, which changes Sakurai even more. Heck maybe to point that he won’t stand the Pope bad mouthing his friend anymore. This could also push Furi to accept her feelings seeing her knight like that, I am still team Sofia but Furi is not a bad match. The development seems kinda underwhelming especially this had a lot to do with her origin. Again this just my theory but kinda want to see it happen.

  20. Thanks for the double release. As expected, the Demon army laid a trap, but I never imagined Zagan would pass his title and use himself to deceive the enemy. And now, the stage is set for Makoto to take down another Demon Lord. That should shut up the Pope. I do wonder where Alex is though during this crisis. Perhaps they are saving him as a trump card for the Great Demon Lord?

      As for the pope, I think that from a God’s point of view he is just a passing by annoyance that is simply not worth the effort with his punny lifespan compared to their game with the Demon Gods that span through millenia. But the moment his annoyance reach a certain threshold, he will be trampled. He didn’t take any real actions thus far, so he is at the level of a little barking dog for now in their eyes.

    So, the magic devices locations were a state secret… not sure I agree with those who think the Pope is an enemy puppet (I think he is just an idiot jerk), but there is a mole there! Maybe that’s how the demons could take in account Ira’s visions and counterattack.
    I am a bit worried for Makoto: all alone against probably two demons lords (where the hell is Forneus?).
    I wonder if he will synchronize with Sakurai at some point? ^^

    Oh boy here we go. Time for Makoto to save the day (yet again) and turn everyone’s expectation. Hope the pope at least got slackjawed.

    Next question, who is Alex? His action in this war seems suspicious. Is he the mole rat? Got a secret backdeal with the pope? Someone whom Ira bestowed power? Or another thing entirely? It’s worth to look up too.

    While Ira is kinda hateful at the moment, I find her actions cute. Everytime she refused to meet eyes whenever Makoto said something about her failure in his heart is adorable. I hope she learns from her mistakes and at least grows kinder to our MC. We can already see from the first meeting that Ira at least fond of Makoto quite a bit, since she bothered to solicit Makoto to convert to her religion, and Makoto already knows that she didn’t hate him and merely doing so out of duty. Her actions for Furi is still vexing though.

    1. I think Alex is a god. I’m not sure tho. But remember, when he moves at the order of Esther/Ira before, he got like a divinity or something feels like divinity. So maybe, he’s a god but low ranking one, a subordinate of Ira she secretly put in Earth in case the Light hero died.

  32. First, thank you for the chapter.
    Second, I want Makoto to just gather up all the clouds that are blocking the sun, create a bunch of water lenses, and just magnifying glass the Light Hero back to full health by artificially increasing his sunlight. That would be awesome, seeing that Makoto’s good for teamwork, too, not just soloing when it’s his specialty time.
    His whole thing of forming a team feels a lot less like a team than I’d like, so it would be cool if Makoto could use team combos to give a feeling of cooperation.
