WM – Chapter 202: Takatsuki Makoto receives a shock

Sponsored Chapter!

“The Snake Church has been annihilated!” (Fuji)

What did you saaaaay?! 

Is this what Ira-sama said about ‘I have played my card’? 

But how? 

“Fuji-yan, just what happened…?” (Makoto)

“I still don’t know in detail, but…what I know is that by the orders of the Destiny Oracle Esther-sama and the Pope, the Country Designated Hero of Highland, Alexander-dono, moved alone into the Demonic Continent, and attacked the hideout of the Snake Church. He apparently killed all the Archbishops of the Snake Church that were hidden there.” (Fuji)

“…I-I see.” (Makoto)

I was explained with plenty enough detail.

Seriously, what’s with the information network of Fuji-yan?

“At any rate, that spaced out Highland Hero Alex did it all on his own? Not together with the Sun Knights and the Templars?” (Makoto)

“That’s…they apparently didn’t move the army, he moved alone-desu zo.” (Fuji)

Fumu, so he really was unbelievably strong. 

Couldn’t we have been able to defeat the Demon Lord more easily with the help of Hero Alex? 

For some reason he was acting separately from Sakurai-kun in the plan of before. 

“The chief members of the Snake Church are having their gibbeted heads displayed at the plaza in front of the Highland Castle. The head of the Archbishop Isaac that you have been deeply involved with, Takki-dono…” (Fuji)

“Eh?! He is?” (Makoto)

I was shocked.

He made a Taboo Monster rampage at Horun, caused a stampede of monsters at Symphonia, wanted to resurrect a Demon Lord in the Wood Country, and was the one who proposed (most likely) the plan that the demon lord army utilized at the Commercial Country. 

Archbishop Isaac.

I see…Isaac-san has died, huh.

Moreover, his head is being displayed. 

In the end, I couldn’t see his face while he was alive.

Wonder how he looks…

“Takki-dono, want to go take a look?” (Fuji)

Fuji-yan asked me hesitantly.

“No…best not.” (Makoto)

I shake my head to the sides.

Let’s not do something like watching the corpse of the dead. 

Even though a problematic enemy is gone, it for some reason left a sour taste. 

“There’s also one more big piece of news-desu zo!” (Fuji)

“Hooh.” (Makoto)

Fuji-yan says with a cheerful tone as if brushing away the serious mood.

“Princess Noel has safely completed the Trial of God and has become the Holy Maiden-sama!” (Fuji)

“Trial of God?” (Makoto)

I tilt my head. 

“Hero Makoto, Noel-sama has overcome the Trial of God and has obtained the same power as the Holy Maiden Anna-sama.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia appeared. 

Right, there was that story. 

I see, so Princess Noel has become the Holy Maiden-sama, huh.

She must have gotten stronger, but…can the Holy Maiden-sama fight?

“Takki-dono, the Skill of the Holy Maiden Anna-sama ‘the Victory March Song’ is a legendary skill that’s said can turn several tens of thousands of soldiers into one-man armies-desu zo.” (Fuji)

I see… A buff skill, huh. 

Buffing several tens of thousands at once is quite crazy.

Buff spells normally can only buff a few tens of people at most. 

So it is a unique skill of the Holy Maiden-sama, huh.

“And you are saying Princess Noel can use that?” (Makoto)

“Yes, it seems Noel-sama has been entrusted with the Victory March Song.” (Sofia)

“That’s reassuring.” (Makoto)

I wanted that reassurance in the war of before though. Oh well, it is good that it has at least managed to make it to the battle of the Great Demon Lord, huh.

“By the way, did you come here with business today, Princess Sofia?” (Fuji)

Fuji-yan steers the conversation as if reading my mind.

“Yes, that’s right. I am sorry for Lord Fujiwara, but I will be borrowing Hero Makoto and bringing him to Princess Noel.” (Sofia)

“Of course-desu zo! Take him!” (Fuji)


Decided without my answer? 

Well, she is my superior, so I will go though.

Princess Sofia and I went off to the Highland Castle. 

“That’s…” (Makoto)

There’s a whole lot of people gathered at the plaza in front of the Highland Castle. 

Looks like they are watching the heads of the chief members of the Snake Church.

There’s even people who are throwing stones. 

…I can’t really say that’s in bad taste. 

The Snake Church is a group that chanted the freedom of the devilkin, and their methods were extreme and were indiscriminate terrorism.

Highland and Camelon, where the Goddess Church has strong influence, are targeted often, and it is apparently common for the common populace to be caught in it. 

There must be people who have lost family because of them. 

If looking at the pitiful state of their hateful enemies reduces their bitter emotions, that in itself has meaning…probably. 

The onlookers are talking. 

I listen to what they say with Eavesdrop. 

“What a damn relief. Who knows how many times they have gotten in the way of my business!” 

“Yeah, it is thanks to the Hero-sama and the Pope-sama.” 

“Who knows how many have lost their lives because of them…” 

“But the Pope-sama is kind. They should just eradicate all the devilkin.” 

“Really. If we leave the Dirty Land of Laphroaig, new chief members of the Snake Church will obviously be born.” 

“The Moon Country should be burned down.” 

“Because of them…my father…!” 

“Devilkin should just be gone from this world!” 

I didn’t know how to feel.

The Snake Church is comprised of devilkin, but it is not like all devilkin follow the Snake God. 

The sister and children in the 9th District slums are peaceful devilkin that follow the Sun Goddess.

But for the normal populace, the devilkin themselves must all look evil. 

Laphroaig…is the homeland of Furiae-san. 

The compatriots of Furiae-san are living every minute of their life in poverty underground.

Will there be a day they can live their lives with peace of mind? 

I should try consulting about this matter with Ira-sama. 

Thinking this, Princess Sofia and I cross the gate. 


“…Sorry, Hero Makoto. I did make an appointment, but…” (Sofia)

“Princess Noel’s secretary made a double booking, so it is not your fault, Princess Sofia.” (Makoto)

When we went to the Highland Castle, Princess Noel was absent. 

Princess Sofia pressed on saying ‘What’s the meaning of this?!’, but the response was a cold one of ‘Noel-sama is on a different matter. Try later, and adjust your schedule’. 

Even though it was their mistake…that’s some terrible treatment. 

This is the difference in the next queen of the big country that is Highland, and the princess of a small country, huh…

We had no choice but to reschedule the meeting at another time, and that scheduled time was several days from now. 

We tottered our way back to the hospital room. 

“Oh my, welcome back, Makoto-sama, Sofia-san.” 


And then, when we returned to my hospital room, Princess Noel was there. 

What’s going on?! 

And here I was wondering why there were so many Templars in the hospital!

All of them were the bodyguards of Princess Noel, huh.

“She apparently came to meet Princess Sofia and My Knight.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san was brushing the black cat in a bad mood.

Lucy and Sa-san seem to be nervous themselves in the presence of the next to the throne of Highland. 

“What happened, Noel-sama?!” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia hurriedly runs to her side. 

Now then, what I should say here is…

“Princess Noel, congratulations on the matter of the Trial of God.” (Makoto)

“Thank you very much, Makoto-sama. Sofia-san, I apologize on behalf of my secretary’s rudeness. I have ended my arrangement and headed here.” (Noel)

“No way… I am flattered by this.” (Sofia)


So she prioritized us, huh. 

Princess Sofia is frozen stiff at this. 

But Princess Noel’s schedule really must be packed. 

So why is she here? 

I tilted my head, and Princess Noel giggled as she came over here.

“Makoto-sama.” (Noel)

“Y-Yes?” (Makoto)

What is it?

“It seems like you have become the Guardian Knight of the Great Sage-sama… Counting the Demon Lord subjugation the other day, the Highland Castle is filled with talk about you.” (Noel)

“Is that so…?” (Makoto)

That’s indeed an honor. 

Well, the Great Sage-sama is a popular one. 

The cost of popularity, huh.

“Ryosuke-san is also always talking about you, Makoto-sama. Please stay with us to defeat the Great Demon Lord too, okay?” (Noel)

She holds my hand tightly and looks at me. 

I felt as if light had covered me. 

I-Is this the power of the Holy Maiden-sama? 

The cold gazes of Lucy, Sa-san, and Princess Sofia were stabbing my back.

But it seems they are refraining themselves since it is Princess Noel. 

“I will try.” (Makoto)

I give a safe answer.

“You definitely must, okay?!” (Noel)

Princess Noel approaches even harder. 

Wait, you are way too close! 

I was about to take distance, when…

“Can you not act so overly familiar with My Knight?” (Furiae)

I was pulled by Furiae-san.

“Oh my, excuse me for that, Moon Oracle Furiae.” (Noel)

“Hmph.” (Furiae)

Princess Noel didn’t even spare a glance at Furiae-san as she separated. 

“Highland has a lot of capable Heroes and fighters, right? My Knight is weak, so can you please not get him involved in your matters, Sun Oracle Noel?” (Furiae)

“Of course Highland will stand at the front in the battle against the demon lord army. But everyone should be joining hands. Also, I am the Holy Maiden now.” (Noel)

“I see, so you are bragging?” (Furiae)

“No, I am not. There’s no need to put it that way, Furiae.” (Noel)

Furiae-san and Princess Noel won’t make eye contact. 

Their tone is calm though…

The air is a bit thorny and it is uncomfortable. 

Princess Noel must have noticed that atmosphere, she turned my way and smiled as if trying to change the topic. 

“Right! I have a message for you, Makoto-sama.” (Noel)

“Me?” (Makoto)

“It seems Ryosuke-san has something to talk with you about. Please meet him at least once.” (Noel)

Princess Noel said that. 

(…Hm?) (Makoto)

But the words of Princess Noel bothered me.

(Sakurai-kun shows up pretty often here though…) (Makoto)

Actually, he came to my hospital room not that long ago. 

He would talk with me, Furiae-san, and Sa-san.

At those times, there was only casual talk…

Does that mean he wants to talk with just us two alone?

“Now that you mention it, the Light Hero-sama is not with you today.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia jumps onto that topic. 

“Yeah, Ryosuke-san is busy after all. I also won’t be having much free time in my schedule for a good while.” (Noel)

Princess Noel smiles with a sad tint in it. 

Oh, is that so?

Sakurai-kun and Princess Noel are living a lifestyle where their schedules don’t match, huh. 

But it looks like it would be a bad idea to tell Princess Noel that Sakurai-kun has been stealthily coming here.

When I looked at Sa-san, she gave me an eye as if saying ‘you understand, right?’.

I know, I know. 

I can read the atmosphere in those aspects I’ll have you know! 

“Oh my, but Ryosuke comes here every now and then though. Isn’t that right, My Knight?” (Furiae)

“Geh.” (Makoto)


Don’t say unnecessary stuff, Furiae-san! 

Ah, the smile in Princess Noel’s face disappeared.

Furiae-san made a very feigned ‘oops’ face.

That rascal, she did it on purpose, didn’t she? 

“…Furiae, is what you said true?” (Noel)

“I said nothing. Forget it.” (Furiae)

“I haven’t met him for a week here, you know?!” (Noel)

“I see. You’ve got it tough, huh. I pity you.” (Furiae)

“And yet, he is meeting you?!” (Noel)

“Hey, don’t grab my hand! That hurts.” (Furiae)

“Ryosuke-san! Is this woman that good?!” (Noel)

Aah, Princess Noel is losing it. 

“Say that to the person himself.” (Furiae)

“…I can’t.” (Noel)

“Ha! Wearing the mask of a saint must be rough.” (Furiae)

“I don’t want to hear that from a person that Charms people indiscriminately.” (Noel)

“Hah?” (Furiae)

“What?” (Noel)

Furiae-san and Princess Noel glare at each other at point-blank range. 

We can’t let this go any further! 

“Alright, Princess, stop.” (Makoto)

“Noel-sama, please calm down.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia and I pull them apart. 

These two really are cat and dog! 

I thought it couldn’t be helped when Sakurai-kun was present, but even when he is not, it is like this.

“Excuse my behavior, Sofia-san. Well then, meet Ryosuke-san, Makoto-sama. Okay?” (Noel)

“O-Okay.” (Makoto)

Princess Noel smiles elegantly. 

I nod fervently. 

“…Fufufu, Ryosuke-san, I will have a nice and long talk with you tonight.” (Noel)

I ended up hearing what Princess Noel mumbled as she left with Eavesdrop.

T-This is bad.

Princess Noel is falling into the yandere path. 

Sorry, Sakurai-kun.

I offer a prayer to him within my heart. 

Princess Sofia ran after Princess Noel.

Looks like she wants to consult her about something on the way. 

Taking time from a busy person is really tough, huh.

And in this way, peaceful times came back to the hospital room.

(Now then…my next move should be…) (Makoto)

It is a rare request from Princess Noel. 

Let’s finish that one quick.

I went to Gentle Katana to ask Fuji-yan. 

“Fuji-yan, Fuji-yan.” (Makoto)

“Oh, what is it, Takki-dono?” (Fuji)

“I have a request…” (Makoto)


A place where I can talk with Sakurai-kun.

Right now it isn’t easy to get time with Sakurai-kun who was a central part of the Demon Lord subjugation. 

And so, I had Fuji-yan adjust it for me. 

I thought that even Fuji-yan would be taking time on this one, but…

“Yokoyama-dono is the one managing the schedule of Sakurai-dono-desu zo. When I said ‘Takki-dono wants to meet him’, she adjusted the schedule with utmost priority.” (Fuji)

Is how it went. 

Now that I think about it, Yokoyama Saki-san is the lieutenant of Sakurai-kun’s division, right? 

The connection of classmates is strong. 

I managed to get an appointment the very next day. 

I waited for Sakurai-kun at a bar in the prosperous streets of Highland. 

It is noisy, but the quality of the customers isn’t bad. 

It doesn’t seem like there’s any need to worry about getting involved with weird people. 

I languidly ate fried potatoes and sausages as I drank beer to wait. 

What is it Sakurai-kun wants to talk about? 

Could it be that he saw Furiae-san kiss me (on the forehead) the other day?! 

No, on my island, that doesn’t count…

(Really?) (Noah)

That’s right, Noah-sama.

(Be careful with any bloodshed affairs~☆.) (Noah)

No no, there’s none of that. None none.” (Makoto)

…None, right? 

While I was thinking silly stuff…

“Heya, Takatsuki-kun. Sorry for the wait.” (Sakurai)

“H-Heya there, Sakurai-kun.” (Makoto)

The slightly unenergetic childhood friend of mine (the Light Hero) showed up.

  1. Thanks! Nepu!
     ┃━┫┃┃━┫┃New Year!
    . ∧_∧. ∩
    (つ  ノ

  2. Who the hell is Alexander ? He is really suspicious. I hope that we will have more information about him.

    Isaac is dead ? Nah, I don’t believe it at all. It was probably something like a substitute body or a puppet. For the Archbishop Isaac to die offscreen, it
    Again, Furiae and Noel don’t get along at all. Also, watch out Sakurai ! A wild Yandere is going to visit you !

    Makoto, you are imagining too much. Don’t worry about it. Sakurai left the task of opening the heart of Furiae to you. In other words, he knows that he won’t be able to make her happy. At this rate, Furiae should just push Makoto down.

    1. Judging from the fact that Alex has been said to have high amounts of divinity, and Ira apparently wasn’t emitting any at all, coupled with the fact that he seems to primarily only listen to Ira, I’d say he’s probably where she shunted all her divinity. Perhaps he’s some devout follower who has the unique ability to withstand that level of divinity? I dunno, I’ll have to reread the last arc. I do agree that Isaac is most definitely still alive, it just doesn’t make sense to kill off such a major antagonist offscreen when it’s already established that the god who masterminded the assault has trouble reading the future of the followers of the evil god. Have fun cutting oversized/arrogant swallows.

      1. Well a major flaw there is that holy gods a forbidden to give there divinity to a human other than divine protection. Well Ira is not emitting her because he lowered it. If my theory in last chapters is right that alex emitting a divinity similar to a holy Gods is he himself is a god or half one.
        If he was a half god then he can use he’s divinity, because he’s still a human.

      2. Well, honestly I think it is just a shortcut for the author, so he don’t need to write another plot line and because he wants to give the LN something unique and different from WN.

      3. Nathaniel, I know I’m late (the bell didn’t have the orange circle on it for some reason), but what makes you think that she would stop at just breaking one of the laws placed on the gods? She’s already shown she’s willing and able to ignore one or two of them by descending for an extended for a prolonged period of time and interfering directly.

    2. Yeah, me too, I’m been suspecting alex as in zagan chapters because he didn’t even help at all. And now snake churche just got annihilated in a blink. Wooh

      He’s existence made theorise that some kind a god or half god. Because it’s impossible even sakurai that it’s a light hero annihilated the church in an instance.

  3. I seriously don’t believe Isaac die it must have been a puppet or something like a spell to take over the body of the one who kills him.
    Cowards like him usually have more than one ace hidden so I wouldn’t be surprised if he took over Alexander body and mind.
    Also I think Alexander been absentminded might have some hidden meaning behind it.

  4. Thanks for the chapter~!

    “by the orders of the Moon Oracle Esther-sama”
    Are you sure it’s moon and not fate/destiny? RAW said [運命の女神の巫女様], unmei no megami no miko-sama after all

    So Isaac truly died, and Alex is that strong.
    Noel is on yandere path due to Furi, run Sakurai!

  5. I hope Makoto’s harem can make him more human-like. He’s still dense at the oddest things. But he’s getting better at reading the mood, I see improvement. That misunderstanding with Furiae is enough to double facepalm. The fact that Sakurai explicitly told Makoto to open Furi’s heart since he could not do it is enough to conclude that he does not have any romantic interest. Nice to see Makoto might ask Ira to help rebuild Moon Country.

    I feel like the Snake Church is not 100% gone, it might just be the lizards tail like in Tsuki ga Michi with the devil cultists. They might have bases on other continents too. Plus it’s not only devilkin but also humans who probably join them too. Public executions or displays of corpses really do leave a sour aftertaste.

    1. I hope Makoto gets to read the mood better and stuff, while still retaining that blank emotionless face whilst slaughtering foes

    2. If it does indeed is cutting the lizard’s tail, then the no.1 Sakurai stabbing perpetrator candidate is still him

        1. If it were so, Ira would’ve seen that already since she can see the future of holy gods followers, and Noel is an Oracle

  6. To be fair, Noel, you are a symbol of the country to slaughtered Furiae’s close friends and family. Compared to stealing your man, I think she has more grievances than you. Yandere path, huh? Popular people live on the edge.

    That said…Sakurai still just wants to hang out with Takki, huh? Sounds like things are rough for him. Either that or he has a specific request now.

    …yeah no, I don’t buy it. Isaac is such a pain in the ass I can’t see this working out as expected. He’s definitely the cockroach type.

  7. Thanks for the chapter 😀
    Well that was….
    That was a tame chapter, to say the least. Like most of the time the cliffhangers in this are killing me unless they’re concluding an arc or something but this……
    This was just……..a chapter.
    Can’t all be winners I guess
    Once again, BS on Issac being dead, the writer is too good for that

      1. I think he’s just a puppet full of Ira’s divine energy but who knows?
        Shouldn’t he be ash if he was pumped full of divine energy? Will his brain be mush after this?
        The real question to me is if he IS evil, how has Ira not noticed? Wouldn’t…..SOMEONE care about the future of the Pope?

  8. “I still don’t know in detail, but…what I know is that by the orders of the Destiny Oracle Esther-sama and the Pope
    So, since Ira canonically can’t SEE those bastards, I wonder who would’ve known where their hideout was.
    Among those two people.
    Seriously, the the pope is rasing so many flags hes communicating in semaphore

  9. So the Rocket Team is really dead? That’s a bit sad, but well, is possible that Isaac is actually still alive. The idea of asking to Ira-chan that at least his nation treat better the Moon Oracle and the devilkins is a good one, if their Goddess declair that then they have to follow the order, when I was thinking that Makoto also mentioned say it to Ira-chan so it’s possible.

    If Sakurai really want to talk about Furiae that could be good, I hope he say to Makoto that he can date her without problem, that he only want her to be happy and he know that that is possible in the side of Makoto.

    Extra: “Fuji-yan, Fuji-yan.” This was so similar to the “Spirit-san, Spirit-san” that I laughed.

    1. I think that the rocket team is probably still alive. and the fact that the Alex hero won so easily is a bit sus.

      1. Yeah, he’s very existence is sus, so much of destroying easily isaac😂, Isaac can probably plan out from start. He’s still alive and kicking in demons Castle together with Great Demon King waiting for makoto for a rematch

    2. Yeah, how i wish that issaac is still alive, i like it when they makoto destroy he’s plan every time he appears😂

  10. I still don’t get why there are demi-humans and devilkin that choose to live in a heavy racist country like Highland when they could live in their own country…

    Well, for devilkin is harsh no matter where they live since the Moon Country ain’t that great of a place to begin with, but demi-humans? I dunno why would any demi choose to live in a human supremacist country that discriminates them when they have Spring Log that is formed by demis.
    Also don’t get how Spring Log can be in an alliance with a country that thinks of them as nothing more than beasts…

    Gotta say the author didn’t pay much attention to logic during the world building.

    1. You may as well ask why anyone lives in North Korea when there are better options. People get born in places that suck for them, man. Not everyone can just pick up and leave. Makoto and co are getting around with flying horses and an airship, but what’s some peasant going to do? Leave everything and walk across monster country?

  11. This chapter reminds me…
    >I’d like to live just long enough to be there when they cut off your head and stick it on a pike… as a warning to the next ten generations that some favors come with too high a price. I would look up at your lifeless eyes and wave like this. [finger wave] Can you and your associates arrange this for me, Mr. Issac?

  12. I don’t buy it. Isaac had so many puppets no way they got him. Not to mention I thought Ira has a hard time seeing anyone of the devilkins movements, especially the Snake Church why now?

    Noel became the Saintess cool but that sucks, I was hoping Furi would get it especially how it seemed to foreshadow it in previous chapters. Oh well

    I am really happy to see the friendship between Makoto and Sakurai. Many novels tend to make the MC and hero relationships hostile or indifferent towards each other. Glad to see their closeness and back each other up. When Sakurai becomes king hope he can raise the Water countries reputation cuz Makoto living there.

  13. Thanks for the chapter, and to the sponsor!
    I’m curious about what poor worn out Sakurai wants to talk about…
    And I’m with you when thinking about that Isaac cockroach: he can’t possibly be really dead!

    I’m a bit upset by Furiae this time. Come on, she’s a bit too childish when it comes to Noel, I can’t stand their bickering. At the same time, I guess she’s the only one who can talk to the future queen like that. And turn her yandere.. eheheh

  14. for some reason i feel the head is fake most likely it’s a decoy..

    so Noel mask has fell, unexpectedly she become yandere poor sakurai now his trouble add up again.

  15. I’m seriously late today. Thanks for the chapter. Are there demigods in this world? Alex has all this power and where was he during all the other battles?

  16. Thanks a lot for the chapter. I still don’t buy the fact that the Snake Church’s leaders are dead, especially Isaac. He might have been a blabbermouth, but I doubt he would be killed so easily. Also, Alex being able to storm the Demonic Continent alone reinforces my suspicions that he’s probably a demigod.

  17. Noel was rude but I guess this is what happens if you are stressed because she became holy maiden and has alot on her mind.

  18. thanks for chap
    wow am glad most ppl here treat isaac as a recurring gag villain
    again a plot troupe, he didn’t see isaac’s face so if he really is alive and meets mc ,mc won’t recognize him.

    AND again doubts on Alex the puppet(as i prefer calling him)I really feel he is a robot heracles(as this story relies heavily on greek mythos) and does the dirty work of the gods.

    and they still didn’t explain what exactly being a ‘holy maiden’ changes.There’s no way it is getting only one skill right?BTW YANDERE FTW,cheering noel to become one

  19. Thanks for the chapter.
    Should I officially put Sakurai in Makoto’s harem ?

    It’s late but happy new year everyone.

  20. Thanks for the chapter and to the sponsors! ^^
    I love almost everyone if not all the readers is in denial of Isaac’s death! XD
    I think so too, but with this author that play some times with tropes I wouldn’t be surprised that he pulls us a “You thought that the recuring vilain would be still alive? Sorry but no! 😛 “. x)
    Time for Makoto to comfort his friend after a tough night with his fiancee.

  21. Ah so they got killed by Alex. I don’t think the Snake Church will reform anytime soon. Well I think it’s more likely that this really is the end for them. They lost all of their leaders and important people and I think whatever remnants that Alex may have missed are probably too much of small fries to rebuild the Snake Church again. Rebuilding would take years and it’d just be easier for the remnants to join the demons and the Demon Lords’ forces. Iblis is resurrecting soon anyways so it’d be easier to jump on his bandwagon than to try to rebuild an organization from scratch. Also I’m seeing that many think that Isaac isn’t dead but personally I think he is. The guy was kinda an idiot. He’d show up in front of everyone and act all theatrical while giving stupid evil villain monologues and explaining exactly what his plan is and all of the important details that give the MC enough clues on how to win. Sure he would send people who he’d puppeteer to be his proxy so that it wouldn’t matter if they get captured or killed but they said Alex traveled directly to the Snake Church’s headquarters in the demonic continent which would be a place that Isaac wouldn’t feel any danger to himself so he wouldn’t have a reason to have a body double there to let him fake his death.

    Noel is now getting payback on Furi who always gets close and acts flirty to Sakurai just to piss her off. Now Noel is doing the same thing to Makoto to piss off Furi. Uh oh sounds like the advent of Yandere Noel there at the end. Better watch out she isn’t the one who fulfills Ira’s prophecy of Sakurai getting stabbed.

  22. i’d say, Isaac might be the Pope himself, because he’s way too suspicious, racist and too much of an antagonist against Makoto.

  23. I am back again!!!!
    After almost getting killed by Covid is good to be able to relax reading this, it’s a shake I catch up though xD
    Happy new year to all!!!
    And the for your hard work Reigokai Sama!!!

  24. That has to be intentional 😂. Noel is pulling Furiae’s trick against Furiae.

    That part with Isaac’s head and all? I get the frustration, but I’d bet they never even thought that they (and their parents, and their parents’ parents) did this basically to themselves. What was everyone expecting to happen when they disenfranchised an entire people anyways? And of course, they don’t learn, at all. At least complete annihilation is a step to a solution, however unsavory, as per Machiavelli The sad thing about it all is the endless loop of revenge if nothing is done. An eye for an eye may make the world go blind, but without it, people tend to go “my eye for your entire family”, and then the world dies.

  25. I’m so confused with how Noel treats Makoto.

    Could this be….the legendary double NTR??

    I hope not, Sakurai deserves better

      1. I think the reason why Noel treats MC like that is to make him a part of Highland’s army too…like marrying Janet or something like that

    1. I had enouhh with ntr flaga here, they are not dating, the two of them are just close friend. Sakurai and furiae that is. What’s more, the lady herself already explain her real feelings for the both of them, she liked Sakurai first but develop a feelings to Makoto due to an acceptable reason.

      1. I think you are ignoring Sakurai’s side of the matter though aren’t you? Remember he couldn’t leave Furiae alone? He was visiting her in her prison and he went to her to help her escape the city.
        Plus, when they are together they go into their “own little world” as Makoto himself described it…?
        Not to mention that Furiae herself described Sakurai as her “first love” and began suppressing that feeling precisely because she thinks she cannot interfere with his destiny as the Hero of Light tied to Princess Noel etc.
        She WAS plenty interested and Sakurai himself seemed the most relaxed when around her. You notice how stressed Sakurai appears to be lately with all his 20 plus harem girls?
        He is even sneaking out behind the back of Princess Noel to meet Makoto AND Furiae is he not?
        That’s plenty hints there to draw a conclusion that they are MORE than just “close friends.”
        Either that or he’s crushing on Makoto…and I’m not touching that…lol
        Seriously though, it certainly seems to FEEL like NTR to Makoto himself as his internal conversation shows and his goddess Noah is even joking about it with him?
        So yeah, the NTR flag HAS been raised, unfortunately.
        So we just need to avoid this happening: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/250478b3508ee1013c7afb990e465f2b0787dda51b24c9e7a108d6b1bf7d5acd.gif

        1. Yeah I think Sakurai likes her the most, or perhaps feels the most relaxed with her, something like that. They were not a couple, but they sure were into each other and both knew it. She is better off without him though, he isn’t though I guess

  26. I really hope he is there for a break and not for love problems regarding Furiae, because she acted different to him lately

    1. he comes to meet makoto. i’ll tell you this but sakurai’s vibe is like a person who want to get closer to makoto.

      i know some degenerate would mention this somewhere so i’ll mention it here first.

      you know how sakurai was described as has 20 wives but always look mentally tired?
      until him meeting with makoto at labirintos.

      this guy more happy to meet makoto despite everything that he has.

      i know it is weird but in the dialogue between makoto and sakurai, you can feel the jolt of emotion each time he meet and or describing makoto.

      bruh if sakurai is female i bet they would not describe it as admiration but more of a maiden in love. (i know admiration, leo is more of an admiration toward makoto, the one sakurai’s has is either obsession or faith.)

      i don’t know why but sakurai’s feeling to makoto is somehow got a screen time and described more clearly than lucy or sa-san.

      insert hah gai meme here* but i tell you the reason sakurai close to furiae is maybe to fulfill makoto expectation. rather than that, everytime makoto tease sakurai and furiae. sakurai’s reaction is only to smile wryly.

      the fuck wrong is this guy, sakurai would 100% choose to be closer to makoto rather than harem life.

      he even invited makoto to his party at the beginning while i bet the two girls is following his without invited and he just accept it.

      mark my words, look carefully at every conversation sakurai has with makoto. it always following the same pattern at the beginning at how sakurai has jolt of emotion everytime he speak to makoto.

  27. seems like ppl keep misunderstanding what’s called NTR and keep shouting NTR each time they mention Furiae like a mob

  28. Fuck Noel, it looks like she thinks that Furiae charms random people just ’cause she want it, it appear to be that being the sun oracle made her think that every oracle is living as well as her.

  29. Me the first time a read that Alex destroyed the church: thats impossible, the author is not Even trying to conceal the truth.
    Me as a re-reader: there is not way in hell for them to surviveagainst someone as strong as end novel Makoto
