WM – Chapter 212: Takatsuki Makoto wakes up

When I opened my eyes, I saw an unfamiliar ceiling.

Or more like, the ceiling is high.

There’s more than 10 meters from the ceiling. 

There’s murals and stained glass with stuff like angels and gods. 

Where am I?

The next moment I thought about looking around, something jumped in front of me. 

“Makoto!” “Takatsuki-kun!” 

Lucy and Sa-san.

Ugh! …I am being crushed.

I was hugged with incredible force.

“L-Lucy, Sa-san…” (Makoto)

I was about to tell them to calm down, but I choked on my words.

The faces of Lucy and Sa-san were a mess from tears and snot. 

E-Eh? …What situation is this? 

If I remember correctly, I was fighting the Sun Hero, and then…ah, I remember now! 

“Sa-san!” (Makoto)

“W-What? Takatsuki-kun?” (Aya)

“What happened to the wound dealt onto you by the Sun Hero?!” (Makoto)

“Eh? I am totally okay. I revived from the Remaining Lives. See?” (Aya)

She says this and flips her clothes. 

It was a beautiful stomach with no wounds at all.

“Want to try touching it?” (Aya)

Sa-san placed my hand on her stomach.

It is so smooth…

Wait, that’s not it.

“I-I get it already.” (Makoto)

I move my hand away from Sa-san a bit embarrassed and fix her clothes.

“Hey, you are only going to worry about Aya?” (Lucy)

Lucy hugged me as if sulking a bit.

“Sorry. Are you okay, Lucy?” (Makoto)

“Yeah, I’m fine.” (Lucy)

She says this and buries my head on her chest. 

Sa-san hugs me again.

“Hero Makoto.” 

Someone spoke to me from the back.

“Sofia?” (Makoto)

“Dummy…” (Sofia)

She gently held my head with both of her hands.

She was crying. 

…Eh? What’s happening right now?

My memories are a bit hazy here.

“When Eir-sama told me that you died…I…I…” (Sofia)

“……Sorry, Sofia.” (Makoto)

I see.

I died from the cost of transforming into a Spirit, huh.

“Takatsuki-kun!” 

The next one that came running towards me was Sakurai-kun.

“Heya, looks like I worried you guys.” (Makoto)

“…Of course, but I am relieved.” (Sakurai)

He directed me a face that seemed on the verge of tears.

Right, what about Furiae-san?! 

I look around restlessly, and I find a black haired beauty a little bit further away.

Furiae-san had her mouth wide open that didn’t fit her beauty. 

“Ooi, Princess…” (Makoto)

The moment I stood up and tried to go there…

“T-Takatsuki-kun! You should wear something…” (Sakurai)

“Hm?” (Makoto)

At that moment, I noticed…

I am naked.

(Uoooooooooo! Why?!) (Makoto)

Lucy, Sa-san, Princess Sofia; no one told me! 

“Takatsuki Makoto, wear this.” 

“Ah, thanks.” (Makoto)

At some point in time, the Destiny Oracle Esther-san gave me something that looks like a robe. 

I hurriedly wear that.

Fuh, saved.

I once again look around.

Aside from my party members, there’s Princess Sofia and her bodyguards, Princess Noel and her bodyguards, Sakurai-kun, and Oracle Esther-san.

What a weird combination of people.

Of course the Sun Hero Alexander is not here.

The Pope doesn’t seem to be here either. 

I ask a question I had.

“Was the one who revived me…the Destiny Goddess Ira-sama?” (Makoto)

I looked at Oracle Esther-san and said this.

“…That’s right. I used the miracle of resurrection.” (Ira)

“““?!”””

The ones around were stirred up more than I did.

And then, the people around took distance one after the other. 

“The Destiny Goddess Ira-sama…has descended then.” (Noel)

Princess Noel says as if representing everyone. 

At those words, Princess Noel, the bodyguards, Princess Sofia, and even Lucy kneeled. 

Sakurai-kun and Sa-san hurriedly kneeled too. 

A Goddess has descended. 

Normally, I should be following their example. 

But I wanted to complain to her. 

“Ira-sama, what is Sun Hero Alexander? I faced a terrible experience. Keep a proper eye on him.” (Makoto)

“M-Makoto-sama?!” (Noel) 

“Hero Makoto?! That way of speaking is just…!” (Sofia)

Princess Noel and Princess Sofia were pale white. 

It is okay, it is okay. 

Ira-sama is unexpectedly kind after all.

“About the matter of the Sun Hero Alexander, I will be explaining it from now on. Also, correct that ‘unexpectedly’. I am overflowing with kindness.” (Ira)

“Okay~.” (Makoto)

“Child of Noah, you have a foul mouth… Well, fine.” (Ira)

She really did forgive me.

Ira-sama is a tsundere goddess.

Right, I want to talk to Noah-sama too.

She must be angry that I died…

Noah-sama? 

Are you watching~? 

(……)

There’s no response.

Is she angry?

“Noah is watching. I have currently set a Divine Precinct Barrier, so Noah’s voice doesn’t reach.” (Ira)

Ira-sama speaks.

I see. 

I should apologize later.

“Now then, next…” (Ira)

Ira-sama continues.

“A certain personage will be explaining the details this time.” (Ira)

Saying this, a giant magic circle appeared in the center of the Great Church. 

A magic circle that shone rainbow. 

The magic formula was for ‘summoning’.

Who is it calling?

Mana was flowing from Ira-sama like a flood. 

All of it was being sucked into the magic circle.

This spell…is impossible for a human.

The mana of a normal person would dry up before even activating.

Something shiny came out from the giant magic circle. 

“Eh?” (Noel)

The surprised voice of Princess Noel resonated.

The one who showed up was a long, slender, and well-proportioned blonde haired beauty wearing white armor. 

She had a halo that couldn’t be seen directly. 

She is not a person.

My instincts were telling me that she is on a whole other plane of existence. 

“Raise your head.” 

Being told this, I noticed…

Not only Princess Noel, Sakurai-kun, and Princess Sofia, even Lucy, Sa-san, and Furiae-san had kneeled. 

Their heads hanging down as if they had forgotten how to breathe. 

The only one who was standing absentminded was me.

Ah, there’s one other.

Ira-sama was standing with a meek face.

…Should I kneel too? 

I made eye-contact with Ira-sama, but she didn’t say anything.

It seemed like even Ira-sama was refraining from opening her mouth. 

Even Ira-sama… 

In other words, this personage is…

“I am the Sun Goddess, Althena.” 

It is not like she answered the question in my mind.

With a slightly curt tone, the ruler of the world appeared in front of me.

  2. This chapter was way too short! I have several things I want to know! Will Alex remain trapped in the deeps of the oceans for the rest of his life? Why did makoto died after becoming a spirit king? Did the gods kill him? Does makoto still have the spirit arm after being resurrected back as a human? How much did makoto mana control increased from that?

    1. Well, Makoto offered his body so i guess he died by human standard but not his soul. Maybe he didn’t have his spirit arm anymore.

      And if my guess is true, then it doesn’t matter anymore whether Makoto has spirit arm or not anymore since he is the Water Spirit King already, or at least his soul used to be the King, which should leave something related to Spirit King once he’s back being a human

      1. About how he died, remember the Alex’s POV’s chapter? Esther-sama, or should i say Ira-sama said that the Titan Gods gave nature a will and Undine is one of them. I remember how Alex mentions that there’s several blue skinned women helping Makoto.
        Ira-sama also taught Alex :
        – An existence that ruled over them, the Great Spirits
        – The Spirit King apparently shows up from within the most experienced believers of the Titan Gods, in an Apostle that offers their flesh.

        Idk why they need the Apostle’s body, but i think they shared the Nature’s will, their own will with the soul of the Apostle. That could explains why Undine and other water spirits helped Makoto in the fight against Alex.

        So far, Makoto used charm magic by the help of Furiae-san to attract Undine. I know his first encounter with her was Undine showing up, but remember how Makoto said “I would do anything” and right after that, Undine shows up? I think Undine take that as Makoto would want to offer his body to be the Spirit King someday. Idk what makes her thought that way though. Maybe she just wants a new King to serve

    2. Makoto used sacrifice magic, he offered his live to save Furiae and defeat Alex, it was already mentioned previously, that’s why the goddess don’t wanted that Makoto transformed even if it was a emergency. The fact that Makoto died prove that Alex almost surely also died considering that he couldn’t defeat, stop or escape, the only other alternative is that he was saved by a god.

    3. Ignore Spirit state for result of Alex’s fate. Spirit King form was for immortality(def) and cc lockdown(trapped in the ocean of water dragons w/o light). For offence there was The Dagger(Alex mentioned it himself, plus check earlier chaps for dagger’s info) with God Killer as one of many traits.
      Makoto was an immortal enemy with aoe cc lock and weapon negating divine immortality. Alex was ‘eventually’ to be killed

    1. Yeah they really do somehow. Like brother and sister, husband and wife, or an old married couple, or almost like two Makoto talking to each other. Makoto and Ira have really good chemistry with each other.

      To ship or not to ship. That is the question.

  3. Thanks for the chapter~

    Ira-sama resurrected Makoto? I wonder if that’s what she wants to do out of her own consideration or because higher gods tell her to. Hearing her way of speaking to Makoto, it seems Janet-san is true after all that Makoto is kinda close to Ira-sama.

    I feels like their relation’s atmosphere is just like Makoto and Great Sage-sama the first few times they met xD. I guess there would be the chance of advancement of relation between Makoto and Ira in the future?

    [Not only Princess Noel, Sakurai-kun, and Princess Sofia, even Lucy, Sa-san, and Furiae-san had kneeled.]

    Wait, Sa-san already know the figure of Althena-sama? Or is it just the effect of the Divine Aura which doesn’t affect Makoto at all?
    At any rate, oh boy here we go facing the big picture. I wonder what would Althena-sama do to Makoto. He uhhh, killed Alex i guess since he isn’t there?

    I hope Althena-sama doesn’t have any sign of grudge towards our boy. All the Goddesses we’ve met so far is pretty kind to Makoto. I’m not fully sure that Althena-sama would have the same case.

    1. Well, Althena forgave Makoto for being the Apostle of Noah despite Noah saying that Althena is a strict goddess, so she might be kinder than expected.

      For Makoto and Ira, they are like troublesome siblings. Ira would be the “perfect” little sister and Makoto the “normal” and “average” older brother. Now that I think about it, they are kinda cute when they interact. I would say that they are like Taihei and Umaru.

    I want her to pull Ira’s cheeks for letting Alexander do as he pleases and the pope has to die no questions ask just kill him her he stands!!!!
    Or instead of killing the pope just mark him as heretic for going against the will of god and excommunicate him or something.

      1. I can definitely see Makoto pissing off Althena one way or the other together with Ira. I feel the tsukkomi coming from them.

        Seeing that she’s here, I guess Water Spirit King is a really big taboo? I don’t think she’ll come just because her half brother did something stupid assuming Alex is a demigod. Did Makoto just f*ck up by going overboard?

        Oh and speaking of Alex, I have a premonition that he’ll show up in the next chapter and his mind breaks when he sees Makoto again and everyone is shocked. That’s a classic trope I’d love to see.

  5. It’s a bit annoying that they still haven’t explained anything, but well, next chapter I hope, at least we can finally meet Althena, I’m really curious to know her and how will be the relaptionship between she and Makoto.

  6. I can only imagine an older version of Janet when described like that. Yeah I still think Eir killed him in Water Spirit form since she reported it to Sophia. The holy goddesses most likely have some way to deal with spirits since they manage to win the war against the titan gods.

    So Makoto was naked….. is Furiae shocked by Makoto’s birthday suit or him coming back? Meanwhile, Lucy, Aya, Sophia gave his naked body a hug. Let that sink in.

    Missed opportunity by Makoto to go “Stop ogling me, you perverts!” and Ira gave him a robe to cover up. How kind. I think we might get a scene similar to how Makoto lost it with Sophia after they helped Sakurai defeat the taboo dragons.

  7. Wait, did Althena come on this plane in the flesh? Isn’t it something that could drive everybody insane?🤔
    Or maybe it’s just Noah. I wonder if it is because Althena is there that Ira put up the barrier, like, the two reeeally don’t get along, or if it’s some kind of punishment because she didn’t stop Makoto’s transformation…

    1. In the chapter it says
      >She had a halo that couldn’t be seen directly.
      Without looking at the original text, it probably should be
      >She had a halo (so) that (she) couldn’t be seen directly.
      Which is consistent with how Eir originally appeared before Makoto (in Noah’s realm) before finding out she didn’t need to obscure her appearance in front of Makoto. But yes for everyone else, it would be a problem if she didn’t do that.

  16. OK so according to Makoto he died because that was the cost of turning into a spirit.

    Sheesh Sa-san, TPO. Makoto just came back to life and she’s already making him feel her bare stomach.

    Aaannnddd of course Makoto is naked. I was kind of expecting Ira to also start blushing when she handed him a robe to cover up. Anyways given their interactions now I guess Ira is definitely joining Makoto’s harem. That makes her goddess number 3 in his harem behind Noah and Eir.

    So yeah there are many things to question about. What happened to Alex? What happened to the pope bastard? Is Makoto still human or has he become the Water Spirit King permanently? What about his spirit arm and Noah’s Divinity that in a previous chapter it said that Makoto destroyed with his dagger? Where even is his dagger? Makoto was brought back naked so obviously he doesn’t have his dagger with him. Hopefully Althena will answer everything.

    Speaking of Althena I wonder what hidden flaw she has? All the goddesses we’ve met have had at least one.

    1. According to author, Ira is written to be the enemy. Then her popularity exploded, while people have been asking for her to enter Makoto’s harem.

      By the time the newest chapter on LN is written (which is today btw) he still hasn’t decided yet whether to put Ira in Makoto’s harem or not.

  22. Yep, Makoto is completely and utterly unfazed. I wonder if the goddesses have some sort of passive “Awe Aura” or something like that? That’d be mind-altering so Makoto’s unfazedness will make more sense. I mean, he’s been this unfazed even since the first time meeting with Noah after all. And leave it to Makoto to air every complaint straight into a goddess’ face.
