WM – Chapter 194: Sakurai Ryosuke is reminded

Sponsored Chapter!


◇Sakurai Ryosuke POV◇

I ended up in a parallel world 2 years ago.

I had my Skills checked in the Water Temple, and the moment they learned I was the Light Hero, I was immediately praised fervently as the reincarnation of the Savior.

It wasn’t all bad.

The Sun Country said that they would welcome me with the best treatment, and said that I could bring along friends with me. 

That they would all be treated as state guests.

If I do my job as the Light Hero, they were apparently going to assure my livelihood for the rest of my life. 

I requested to bring along all of my classmates, but the people who got strong Skills said ‘I will do what I want’ and left. 

Even Takatsuki-kun, who I wanted to come, rejected me which was a pity. 

After that, I learned about this world, learned how to use magic and the sword, met with a variety of people…

And then, in the battle against the demon lord army. 

We had the superior position in the battles. 

I managed to defeat the Demon Lord as planned.

Without any big casualties.

“Push back the demon lord army further!” 

Someone said that, but General Yuwein who was in command forbade overstepping. 

However, the demon lord army didn’t completely retreat, and it ended up in us watching the situation…and we were attacked.

Maybe due to us lowering our guards after defeating the Demon Lord, by the time we noticed, me and the 7th Division had been separated from the others with a barrier. 

This barrier that was made solely to trap the Light Hero was powerful, and this was the first time my attacks didn’t work.

Also, the sunlight that is the core of the Light Hero’s Skill had been weakened.

This is most likely a strategy of the enemy as well.

My comrades fell…one after the other…

And then, the only one left standing was me.

(…This is the end, huh.) (Sakurai)

I thought this as I swung my sword.

I can still fight.

I am fine for 1 hour more.

I could manage 2 hours.

3 hours might be painful. 

4 hours…is most likely impossible.

Help won’t be coming here. 

My comrades have already given their lives for me. 

I don’t think I will be able to escape from this black barrier, and the monsters are attacking endlessly. 

I feel like I am going crazy.

I am not swinging my sword out of a sense of duty as a Hero, but because of fear…because I don’t want to die.

Or maybe it is my despairing heart? 

It will soon be over though.

……

I eventually abandoned all thoughts, and began to cut down enemies in a robotic manner.

And then, at the time when my knees were about to give out, cold water was suddenly poured on my head.

(I was attacked?!) (Sakurai)

But I wasn’t injured at all.

It didn’t have any killing intent, or more like, it was water magic that I couldn’t even tell if it was an attack or not.

The one who did that…was my childhood friend.

◇◇

“For now, let’s do something about this barrier.” (Makoto)

The blank face of Takatsuki-kun was the same as always as he said this.

It is the same face as that time he saved me when I was in trouble in my first year of middle school. 

“You can break this barrier, Takatsuki-kun?!” (Sakurai)

I have tried to break the barrier plenty of times.

Also, there should be a lot of skilled mages with General Yuwein outside. 

Even with that, there hasn’t been any breakthrough for a whole day. 

The response of Takatsuki-kun wasn’t an answer to my question.

“Sakurai-kun, grab onto me.” (Makoto)

“Eh?” (Sakurai)

“Quick quick.” (Makoto)

“G-Got it.” (Sakurai)

I grabbed the shoulder of Takatsuki-kun.

“It doesn’t have to be with both hands though… Well, fine.” (Makoto)

Saying this, Takatsuki-kun raised his left hand high up.

“Water Magic: [Great Waterfall].” (Makoto)

“Uwa!” (Sakurai)

The next instant, a massive amount of water as if a pool had been turned upside down swept the whole place.

And it continued with no signs of ending.

The place we were in was swallowed by water in an instant. 

I-I’m going to drown! 

“Water Magic: [Underwater Breathing].” (Makoto)

“Water Magic; [Underwater Talk].” (Makoto)

That voice reached my ears.

{Can you hear me, Sakurai-kun?} (Makoto)

{…Yeah…that’s impressive. There’s magic like this, huh.} (Sakurai)

I learned about Underwater Breathing at Laberintos, but I didn’t know there was a spell that allowed for talking. 

Also, Takatsuki-kun is using Great Waterfall which allows the generation of a massive amount of water. 

He is using 3 spells at the same time. 

A mage that can use 3 spells at the same time is rare even within the Sun Knights.

At that moment…

(Takatsuki-kun! Enemies are coming!) (Sakurai)

Despite being underwater, there were monsters who were approaching us at fast speeds. 

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

Takatsuki-kun shot a spell without even looking there.

The monsters were spun around as they washed away. 

{I think the inside of the barrier is close to being filled with water~. Water generated from magic is treated as a magic attack, huh. It is being absorbed by the barrier… Going as expected.} (Makoto)

Takatsuki-kun scratched his cheek as he laughed faintly. 

But isn’t that bad?

{If it is being absorbed by the barrier, isn’t it pointless…?} (Sakurai)

{It is okay. I just have to generate more water than it is being absorbed.} (Makoto)

{…Can you…do that?} (Sakurai)

{I can. With Spirit Magic, that is.} (Makoto)

Takatsuki-kun says while showing me a cocky smile.

Aah, this face that says he is totally into it. 

It is the face Takatsuki-kun makes when he is doing a prank.

{Now then, let’s move to the next step.} (Makoto)

{Next step?} (Sakurai)

What in the world could it be?

“Water Magic: [Deep Sea].” (Makoto)

The moment I heard those words, chills ran down my back. 

This is the spell that…Takatsuki-kun used on the Lightning Hero at Highland.

{Sakurai-kun, don’t let go, okay?} (Makoto)

I frantically nodded.

And then, I heard the voice of Takatsuki-kun -with the water magic as the intermediary.

“Water Depth: 10,000 meters.” (Makoto)

The metric system isn’t the length measurement system used in this world. 

That’s why this spell must be an original of Takatsuki-kun.

If I remember correctly, the deepest ocean of our world was the Mariana Trench.

Its depth is 10,900 meters. 

In other words, 10,000 meters in the deep sea is close to the deepest it is in our world.

I am not the scientific type, but I think the calculation for 3m^3 is 1 ton. 

There’s no living being that can live in that.

I use [Detection].

Monsters that were alive inside the barrier…

There were none.

(T-Takatsuki-kun…) (Sakurai)

I was worried.

This is the 5th spell.

Moreover, a spell of this scale. 

Is he okay with the mana and the control?

{Ooh, the monsters that are entering the barrier are getting defeated on their own. Lucky~.} (Makoto)

I heard the bouncy voice of Takatsuki-kun.

Ah, he seems to be totally fine. 

I waited for a while more inside the water, but monsters can’t get to where we are to begin with.

It was a peaceful time.

{There’s nothing to do.} (Makoto)

Takatsuki-kun stretched as if he was bored.

He continues using Great Waterfall as if it were nothing, and he is defeating the monsters that are entering by using Deep Sea. 

You would normally need an unbelievable amount of concentration though…

{Takatsuki-kun, what will you do after…?} (Sakurai)

It doesn’t change the fact that we can’t get out of the barrier. 

Shocking words came from Takatsuki-kun.

{For now, let’s try waiting 24 hours.} (Makoto)

{Twenty four?!} (Sakurai)

I was so surprised I was about to let my hand go.

That’s a whole day.

{According to Oracle Esther-san, you won’t be able to survive this night, so if we manage to stop that, won’t the vision of the future change?} (Makoto)

{But even if that’s the case, 24 hours is just…} (Sakurai)

There’s no way he can concentrate for that long.

{If it were a game, I could play for 3 days straight though.} (Makoto)

{…}

Now that he mentions it, that’s true. 

When Takatsuki-kun says he hasn’t slept for 3 days, it really does literally mean that he hasn’t slept for 3 days.

{There’s nothing to do, so let’s talk about something, Sakurai-kun.} (Makoto)

{Right now?!} (Sakurai)

I was getting whiplash from the difference between now and the despairing situation of before, but I tried to work my brain to find something to say. 

{Then, about the Ancient Dragon I fought when I went to the Earth Country…} (Sakurai)

{Oh, nice! I want to hear about that!} (Makoto)

Takatsuki-kun bit onto the topic.

After that, I listened to the time when Takatsuki-kun went wild in the Fire Country.

I got barraged with questions about my fiances, and when I was wondering what was the matter, he asked me for advice saying: ‘I have been getting easily dragged into matters about women, you see… I am aiming for the hardcore playthrough here though’.  

I don’t think I am the appropriate person you should be asking that.

We continued that kind of talk for a while.

At that moment…*Crack* 

I heard a sound like that of something cracking.

This is…?! 

{Takatsuki-kun!} (Sakurai)

{What, that was faster than I thought.} (Makoto)

The barrier was breaking. 

{Just how…against that barrier…?} (Sakurai)

{I think it simply passed the limit of how much it could absorb.} (Makoto)

Takatsuki-kun said this as if nothing. 

Barrier breaking.

There’s two big patterns for that method. 

One is to understand the barrier’s magic formula, and break that formula; the smart way.

The other one is to hit the powerful barrier with a powerful spell to break it; the brute force method.

Takatsuki-kun took the latter one.

{I thought it would last longer though…} (Makoto)

It felt off.

From the way Takatsuki-kun spoke, it is as if having the barrier would have been better…

“Sakurai-kun, it is your turn.” (Makoto)

“…Alright.” (Sakurai)

I understand the reason why soon enough.

The barrier crumbled, and the water that Takatsuki-kun generated turned into the shape of a giant dragon and rose up into the sky. 

The sky I hadn’t seen for a whole day was covered in black clouds.

However, there was something that shocked me even more. 

A giant silver beast was standing in front of us. 

I am familiar with that figure. 

But the silver beast in my memories was older than this. 

It wasn’t as young as the giant beast in front of us.

The Beast King Zagan.

According to what Takatsuki-kun said in the barrier, the one standing in front of us is the one that inherited the power of the previous generation and became the next Demon Lord.

      1. It’s not arrogance, it’s just Makoto xD
        Well he is being completely ignorance and having low common sense that he doesn’t know what’s normal and what’s not. He didn’t even freak out when he knows that his proficiency going way beyond the limit the Gods of that world has set. If that’s not ignorance then i don’t know what it is xD

  1. Water Depth: 10,000 meters ? At that depth, the water pressure is at 97776.95 kPa or 964.98 atm.
    It could probably kill most land monsters, but aquatic monsters could resist it as they are most likely adapted to high pressure environnment.

    Makoto, accept your destiny. When the Great Demon Lord is defeated, you will be attacked by a bunch of carnivore women who will be after your v-card and you won’t be able to resist them.

    1. Now that we know for sure that he can use that level without problem and that that effectively is enough to kill the living thing in land (most of them at least), we should assume that the aquatic ones can resist this and even more, if that isn’t the case then we can say for sure that Makoto is completely stupid for not doing that in the Moon Country, so I want to have faith in Makoto and think that they would had really survived this.

      2. They were far away, and there were a lot, so he wouldn’t be able to get them all probably, and even if it would have worked on them as you said they probably could resist it, at least long enough to escape. But Makoto probably just wanted to use that ice spell though…

    2. The thing about being adapted to high pressures is that you still take time to adapt. If you suddenly go from 1 to 1000 atmospheres you’ll die from the rapid equalization of internal and external forces. Setting aside things like your bones imploding, you end up with weird things like all the protein chains in your cells twisting and fusing into irregular shapes. So you get an effect a bit like stepping into a flash pressure cooker.

      1. Well, it depends on the water he is using. I also assume that the gravity on the planet is the same on Earth (g=9,80665 m/s²). The density of water at 4°C is 1000,00 kg/m³.
        P=pgh= 1000*9,80665×1000= 9806,65 kPa.
        The density of water I used is 997,074 kg/m³, so the pressure is 977,77 kPa.

  3. Thanks for the chapter, and anyone who sponsored this!

    So the barrier actually has its absorption limit. What? That’s kinda lame… I thought that the absorbed mana would strengthen the barrier even more…
    Someone who could maintaining 3 magic is rare, even within the Sun Division? Does that applies to any magic, including low level magic?

    Anyway, Makoto asked Sakurai about relationships and Sakurai said he asked the wrong person? Seems Sakurai really is just forced to mate with his fangirls and no actual reciprocating feeling Lol.

    Time to face Zagan, it seems. I need detailed information on how big it is. Giant Beast, is simply not enough 😦 A size of a truck could be called giant already. I wish this time the author also mentioned the comparison of how big the enemy is, just like the time with Bifrons.
    Wait a minute. Zagan? Didn’t Sakurai defeated him already? Oh wait, young version. So Zagan reincarnated or something?

      1. I don’t see it being mentioned yet other than the result of our speculation that is supported by “looks familiar, younger beast king Zagan” (or i might just forgotten about it). But well, yeah that’s a possibility. So Zagan basically transferred his power to his son if that’s actually the case

        Liked by 1 person

    1. The barrier may have been a high rank magic but the quality of the actual spell wasn’t good enough so it ended up having an upper limit of how much mana it can absorb. Compare it to the dark clouds, Noah said that it is god rank magic but that it would clear up in a day while that exact same spell was cast back during Abel’s time and it was perpetual. Same rank same spell but different spell quality so a different spell duration. Basically the barrier seems to have been in the same situation.

      As for Zagan then did mention it previously that he transferred his power and title to his son before using himself as a decoy to be killed by Sakurai. This current demon king I guess you could call Zagan Jr.

      Liked by 5 people

      1. The amount of mana it can absorb should have been absolute overkill… right up til you have a spirit user with a spirit arm and spirits have basically unlimited mana. So a large volume spell on continuous output, absorbing the magic from every inch of the internal surface area. I don’t know how much worse pressurizing it to extreme levels was.

        Makoto is the edge case among edge cases… them taking down the communication network means Makoto likely wouldn’t have even known before Sakurai was dead already, let alone managing to get there in time. If he got there, surely he can’t get in. Even if he could, how could he possibly take down such a barrier? Sufficient that Sakurai can’t scratch it, and the entire army of humans can’t do it either. And in the futures both prophets saw… the Demon’s plan worked perfectly.

        Makoto yet again smashed their plan, and they’ll never understand just how he did it.

    1. I’d like to see a deeper version of it. Would be awesome if Makoto would also do a water spear with the same pressure as that for offensive magic. I mean, imagine something that you thought was a harmless spear-shaped water, and by the time you touched it at the tip with your finger as lightly as possible, there’s blood coming out.

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Interesting thought. In the case he could launch pressurized water and keep it pressurized, it hitting you would be like something VERY hard (very dense) hitting you. A lot of the damage would depend on the force it strikes you with. Well if the edge was sharp, that would also be of concern. If he kept it up, water drill. But that’s not the scary part.

        Another comment had that pressure at 97776.95 kPa. The moment he released the hold on the pressure…

        Liked by 2 people

      2. Idk if that would be dense enough to have hardness of something like diamond. You might need something of a pressure of neptune to get solid water. So water spear by itself is likely not as effective as something like, pressurized water gun

        Like

      3. Yeah it isn’t dense, but it has an incredible amount of pressure. My point about the water spear is that it doesn’t have to be dense but has a lot of pressure as substitute for “denseness”.

        Pressure and denseness is of course different. If you apply force to an object with incredible denseness, then nothing would happen. But if you apply force to object that has a lot of pressure, then they’ll resist. For example springs.

        So it’s actually the resistance that i meant. But water would always flow to lower terrain because of gravity. It means to get water to resist, then you would need to apply force to the opposite of gravity. Only then the water would gives resistance, giving pressure to you.

        But Makoto is able to manipulates water. It means he also could direct the water flow to anywhere he wants, even defying gravity. By using Deep Sea Magic, in a sense he is directing water pressure to any way he wants it to be.

        Now back to spear. If he would make a spear out of water and gives Deep Sea Magic to it to all direction, he could literally hold its handle firmly as if it’s a solid object because what he is holding is the pressure itself and not the physical form of the water. Think of a balloon full of air. When you hold the balloon, you can feel that the air is resisting if you try to squeeze it. That’s what Makoto would feels with his spear.

        And if, say that spear is launched towards someone and hit him. That someone of course would try to maintain his position (Newton’s first law). In doing so, that someone is giving force towards the spear, and in return the spear would resist. The spear, having greater force than that person could handle, would pierce through that person.

        And why Makoto could holds it as if it’s a solid object? Because he holds it in its handle where it has smooth, even surface. The pressure would be distributed to all of the surface (Just like balloon on nail bed experiment). But in the tip, all the pressure would be directed into a single point. Just like a single nail that is being constantly hammered.

        Yep, sorry for explaining it all. I just feels like it because it is fun for me to explaining things xD

      2. Yes, the spirits are the manifestation of the nature of the world, but if the gods want the can destroy the world, they already do it, and Noah herself say that with spirit magic is probably impossible break a god rank spell. The simple fact that the Olympians hadn’t destroyed the spirits or sealed them, at least the ones from highest level like Undine, and they only reduces their influence because they are a problematic bunch from they point of view (I don’t recall in what chapter was said that they thinked of them as problematic) I think is proof enough to say that the spirits are inferior than the gods.

And the olympian weaken the spirits aside of because they don’t have a good relaptionship with them because they are to emotional so they tend to damage the surroundings to easily.

      1. Oh, I confused that with future chapter.

        Sorry that one is a spoiler. We’ll have Makoto and another character talk about skill rank in the future. Then again because of the nature of MTL (It’s highly not accurate) and what you’ve said, I believe skill ranks were made by Holy Gods/Olympians for human race, and Titan/Old demons affiliated figure don’t use them too much. Then again, author sometimes literally forgot the stuff he’s written (he’s even admitting it on syosetsu page).

        The one who wrote skill descriptions is Ira. This, I believe is not a spoiler.

        About clearing the sky with spirit magic, wasn’t Makoto already talked about this? Because I believe Makoto said something to the effect of “You can’t clear the clouds because it’s like controlling other people’s spell. No matter how much proficiency you have, you can’t control other people’s spell” to himself.

        Or did that happened next in the fight against Zagan? My memory is jumbled, I’ll check RAW after this.

        Olympians don’t take any drastic actions against spirit is probably because:
        1. Their leaders, Titans and Giants, have already been defeated.
        2. They’re part of the rules of the world.

        So yeah, spirits maybe can’t win against the holy gods. But that wasn’t what I meant by Makoto casting god rank spell with spirit power. After all, you don’t need to be the strongest god to cast a god rank spell, you only need to do what god can do. We’ve been given hints, and I think one of them is the time when Noah helps Makoto stopping the meteor. You don’t need “control” like a normal spell. You will it, then it happens.

  7. Eh what’s Makoto mean by saying he’s aiming for the hardcore playthrough? Is he trying to capture all the female targets to unlock the harem ending? Why else would he ask for Sakurai’s advice? Or is he trying to do the route where the MC doesn’t get with anybody until after the final boss has been beaten?

    Well as most of us expected, Makoto just brute forced the barrier by pumping in more mana than it could take. Well it is funny that Makoto just planned to chill in the water sphere for 24 hours. Meanwhile he’s insta-killing ever enemy that enters the barrier with his Deep Sea spell. With all that XP maybe he’ll finally get to raise his stats and increase his mana to a shocking 5.

    Ah whoops, the barrier was too crappy so it broke early. Now they gotta deal with Zagan Jr. I think Makoto’s original plan was to wait the 24 hours in the barrier because Noah told him that the dark clouds would dissipate in one day so if they stayed in the barrier for the whole day then once the barrier broke Sakurai would have been able to get his powerup from the sun and one shot Zagan Jr.

    1. I think Makoto said in one chapter that things like romance in a game are usually reserved at the end of the game, so he is planning to stay a virgin until the Great Demon Lord is defeated.

      Waiting for 24 hours would also allow the reinforcements (Heroes, Great Sage) to help the Light Hero.

      At this point, increasing his mana would not be useful. Instead, he should focus on raising his physical stats in order to react to the attacks of high-ranked demons.

      1. Makoto said that you have to get the Princess after defeating the Great Demon Lord talking how how Noel has to stay a virgin until Sakurai defeats it.

        Makoto’s ideal is saving a heroine (Noah) locked up behind a dragon (Leviathan). lol

  8. and now they going to fight Zagan’s Son with this will the Pope try hide Makoto Achievement.
    and with Sakurai Personalities he probably don’t like stealing credit but one way or another the Pope probably going to threat or do something underhanded.
    the Pope should really be killed.

  9. Hmm, he didn’t used a pressure but rather he fill the unlimited mana from water with 10000 ft. Wide. To break the spell, with limited capacity.

    Makoto is seeking advice of relationship.
    I think your doing good makoto with that quality of woman you have there’s no thot can flirt with you. They have to by pass, aya, lucy, Furie, sofia and lighting hero’s little sister who has power of almost equal to a hero. Your defence is quite good. The only thing is don’t make a mistake or your dead. 😂

    The last part was i think that was Zagan successor of his bloodline and power. 🤔.

    I was late again for a new chapter ‘sigh’

    Thanks for the chapter.

  10. The way Makoto defies logic, I won’t be surprised if some chapters later demon that had his name start going berserk from fear and just throw their weapon crawl at his feet and ask for forgiveness

  11. Thanks for the chapter~!

    [I grabbed the shoulder of Takatsuki-kun.
    “It doesn’t have to be with both hands though… Well, fine.”]
    First time I read this on MTL, I thought Sakurai hugged him, LOL. That’d be funnier.

    [I got barraged with questions about my fiances, and when I was wondering what was the matter, he asked me for advice saying: ‘I have been getting easily dragged into matters about women, you see… I am aiming for the hardcore playthrough here though’.
    I don’t think I am the appropriate person you should be asking that.]
    Ahhh, the worry of a harem protagonist. Too bad Makoto, your friend is also the guy who got carried away. After all, he have 20 wives. Enjoy the comedic “shuraba”, you two.

    [It felt off.
    From the way Takatsuki-kun spoke, it is as if having the barrier would have been better…]
    This is kinda sweet and wholesome actually. Makoto is enjoying the time he spend with his friends, even though he’s avoiding Sakurai back in school because he’s too popular. He’s a caring and loyal friend.

  12. 10,000 meters, huh? Yeah, that’ll probably do the trick. Took a while, but Takki was already ready to hunker down and wait a full day.
    In fact, it’s kinda sweet that the two pals took this chance to just catch up while the monsters that step in get crushed instantly. Shoulda kept a few allies alive.

    I can already see the pope trying to reframe this as Sakurai doing all the work. Here’s hoping this traumatic incident gives him the drive to push back against that, hard. He’s one of the few who has the authority to reprimand that guy, whether he realizes or not.

    Wonder if Takki’s gonna step back for Vs. Zagan Jr. or if he’s gonna support. If the clouds stay, then maybe he’ll help, but he might just focus on opening up the sun.

  13. Thanks for the chapter and thanks to the sponsors! ^^
    In the end he went for both filling and overloading the barrier with high pressure water! x)
    And that moment or realisation from Sakurai about Makoto being able to pull it off made me really laugh! XD
    There’s no way he can concentrate for that long.

    {If it were a game, I could play for 3 days straight though.} (Makoto)

    {…}

    Next time a really pissed Demon Lord vs cheat level heroes (one individually and one on War level)! ^^

    1cm² is 1 ton => 3m^3 is 1 ton (volume is cubic units )

    1. Yeah, I did change the colors. Not sure if you guys like it better this way? I used a darker color to make it a bit easier on the eye.
      Also, yeah, that’s what the novel stated, but maybe I should change it to the accurate number? I changed it anyways. Thanks for the correction 😀

      1. It looks weirdly good. Red combined with dark would hardly goes wrong, even though not many of it resulted in good pattern. But yeah, it looks weirdly good. Either one is fine but i prefer this one a bit more than before

      2. I think the original was correct, but the intent wasn’t clear. The author was talking about the pressure at that depth not how much the water weighs. The pressure at the bottom of the Marianas Trench is 15000 psi which is about 2000 pounds, or 1 ton, per cm^2.
