WM – Chapter 218: Takatsuki Makoto helps out the Holy Maiden

“““Itadakimasu.”””

We were eating the food Sa-san made.

Lucy and I were all excited after seeing the Soul Book, and Sa-san scolded us going ‘Come already!’.

Let’s inspect the matter of my water magic proficiency being 999 later.

Today’s breakfast is toasted bread, vegetable soup, ham, eggs, and salad.

It is western style, but it is an assortment that you could find normally in Japan too.

I sandwich the salad, ham, and eggs in the bread and add mayonnaise. 

I bought the mayonnaise from the store of Fuji-yan.

You really gotta have mayonnaise in an isekai! (prejudice)

I ate the improvised sandwich as I share the dream I had yesterday. 

“And so, Althena-sama was a good Goddess. Ira-sama was disappointing though.” (Makoto)

“Eeh…Ira-sama was that kind of Goddess… That’s a shock.” (Lucy)

Lucy was surprised by what I said.

“Is it okay to have refused the offer of having the Sun Hero as your subordinate, Takatsuki-kun?” (Aya)

“You wouldn’t like that, right, Sa-san?” (Makoto)

“It is true that it would be scary, but it would be better to have him as an ally, I guess…” (Aya)

Seriously? Sa-san is quite the tough cookie.

Furiae-san was listening to our conversation absentminded.

“Princess.” (Makoto)

“W-What is it?” (Furiae)

“Are you not feeling well?” (Makoto)

“I am totally fine!” (Furiae)

Really? 

You have barely taken a bite.

We finished eating, and while we were drinking some tea after,  we heard footsteps.

A lot of footsteps.

Hm? Did we have plans to receive guests today? 

“Hero Makoto! Furiae! Are you here?!” 

It was Princess Sofia.

At her back there’s her bodyguards, Fuji-yan, and…Oracle Esther-san?

“Good morning, Princess Sofia. Is there something you need?” (Makoto)

“Good morning, Hero Makoto. Looks like Furiae is also here.” (Sofia)

“W-What is it?” (Furiae)

Princess Sofia approached us with a grim expression.

Furiae-san stands on guard.

“The devilkin of the Sun Country…no, the devilkin of the whole continent have come rushing here and want to see the Holy Maiden Furiae.” (Sofia)

“““Eh?”””

Not only Furiae-san, even Lucy, Sa-san, and I let out our voices in surprise. 

The devilkin of the whole continent…?

“W-What brought this…?” (Furiae)

Furiae-san’s voice was trembling.

“Looks like the Goddess of Fortune Ira-sama showed up in the dreams of the devilkin and said that the Holy Maiden Furiae will be founding a nation for the sake of the devilkin! Because of this, the devilkin have apparently gathered under Furiae-dono…” (Fuji)

“Ira-sama did…?” (Makoto)

I direct a suspicious look at Oracle Esther-san who is at the back of everyone after hearing what Fuji-yan said.

Esther-san averted her gaze.

“Ira-sama…? What did you do this time?” (Makoto)

When I said this, everyone had shocked faces.

“Hero Makoto, what do you mean by that? The one here is Esther-sama—” (Sofia)

“Ira-sama~? Look me in the eye. I’m gonna tell Althena-sama.” (Makoto)

“Stop!!” 

Esther-san jumped here when I said that.

So it really was you, Ira-sama!

“So? What did you mess up this time?” (Makoto)

“I didn’t mess up! Furiae has become a Holy Maiden, so she needs people to make her nation, right? That’s why I told the devilkin through their dreams! Thanks to that, a whole lot of devilkin have gathered, right?” (Ira)

“Ira-sama has descended?!” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia and the bodyguards had stiffened their faces.

This Goddess is always descended after all.

“Even so, isn’t it way too sudden? There should be preparations first…” (Makoto)

“What are you talking about as if we have the whole time in the world, Takatsuki Makoto? The Great Demon Lord is resurrecting tomorrow, you know? When that happens, due to the national emergency state taking effect, the movement of people will be difficult. This is the best timing.” (Ira)

““Tomorrow?!””

The ruckus jumps drastically at the words of Ira-sama.

Why haven’t you told us such an important thing…?

“E-Eh? I didn’t tell you?” (Ira)

This airheaded Goddess is a lost cause.

Well, everyone knew the Great Demon Lord would be resurrecting in a few days, and the preparations for war should have been done.

“Princess, are you okay?” (Makoto)

“Eh?! Ah…yeah, I’m okay…” (Furiae)

I peeked at Furiae-san’s face who was overheating from the flood of information.

“Your face is red though?” (Makoto)

“I-I’m okay! That’s why…your face is too close.” (Furiae)

“Don’t you have a cold?” (Makoto)

“Hih!” (Furiae)

I placed a hand on Furiae-san’s forehead.

Hmm, I think it is a bit hot.

“Okay~, Fu-chan, calm down.” (Aya)

“Makoto, you get away from Furi.” (Lucy)

Sa-san tapped the shoulder of Furiae-san, and Lucy pulled me away from Furiae-san.

Oi, I am worried about the physical condition of Princess here.

“Leave the devilkin that have come to Camelon! We have made temporary dwellings for them outside Symphonia. Camelon has also arranged the food.” (Ira)

“Ooh, as expected of Ira-sama.” (Makoto)

Ira-sama with the body of Esther-san pushes up her small chest and goes ‘hmph’.

“Furiae, see who are the necessary people for the foundation of your country within the devilkin. I will prepare a place where you can interview them in order.” (Ira)

“M-Me…?” (Furiae)

“You can’t form a nation on your own, right? Camelon will assist you, so in that frame of time gather people who can assist you.” (Ira)

“U-Understood. I will try.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san was slightly insecure, but still nodded with strength.

This…looks like I will have to help out too.

“Fuji-yan, can you assist Princess?!” (Makoto)

“Hm, I see. Got it-desu zo.” (Fuji)

Fuji-yan immediately understood my words.

A lot of people with ulterior motives will be gathering under Furiae-san, so with Fuji-yan’s mind reading ability, I will have him judge who are the trustworthy people.

“Princess, is it okay for Fuji-yan to help out?” (Makoto)

“I’m fine with that but…what about you?” (Furiae)

“Of course I will help out too.” (Makoto)

“I see. Fine then.” (Furiae)

Princess’s expression slowly regained calm.

“Looks like the conversation is progressing on its own here, but…I will be helping out too, Furiae.” (Sofia) 

“Is there anything we can do…?” (Lucy)

“There definitely must be. Fu-chan, if there’s anything troubling you, say it, okay?!” (Aya)

Looks like Princess Sofia, Lucy, and Sa-san will be cooperating as well.

We headed to the place that’s apparently where the devilkin are gathering. 

◇◇

“I am tired, My Knight…” (Furiae)

“Let’s have food delivery for today…” (Makoto)

“Isn’t this great, Furi? You are super popular…” (Aya)

Around evening, Princess, Sa-san, and Lucy were sprawled in the living room of the inn.

“Everyone is tired.” (Sofia)

“It was busy after all…” (Makoto)

Princess Sofia spoke to me worried.

We finished the interview of more than a hundred devilkin just today alone.

We had Lucy check the ability of the mages.

Sa-san a test of practical skill with the warriors.

For their nature, we had Fuji-yan check with his mind reading.

Furiae-san did the final interview.

Furiae-san only directly interviewed the people that were especially proficient after passing the tests. 

There were already close to 1,000 devilkin gathered, so Princess Sofia and Esther-san’s subordinates divided the work to register the names of the regular devilkin.

Looks like for now they are hurrying to secure the ones who have experience in public works and agriculture.

The ruins of the Moon Country have a lot of monsters, so there’s the need for people who have battle skill.

But well, there’s a lot of mages within the devilkin, so there’s apparently no problem when it comes to battles.

Princess Sofia, Fuji-yan, and the others were saying all that while promptly assorting them.

Me?

I was simply watching by the side of Furiae-san.

I had nothing to do.

“Well then, I have to meet Princess Noel now, so I will be heading to the Highland Castle.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia holds my hand as if reluctant to go.

I hold her hand too.

“Thanks, Sofia.” (Makoto)

“If you really think that, please give me more attention.” (Sofia)

She pulled my cheek with a sulking look.

Uhm, what should I do?

Okay! When in trouble, give a hug! 

“Kya!” (Sofia)

When I hugged her, she made a cute scream and went ‘what a sly man’.

Her expression got gentler, so this should have been the correct route. 

(Nice. Good job, Mako-kun.) (Eir)

Eir-sama was watching.

“““…”””

Lucy, Sa-san, and Furiae-san were also watching.

I tried not to direct my eyes there, but it was impossible.

◇◇

Even when it was night, I was training in my room at the inn.

Finally, the Great Demon Lord is resurrecting tomorrow…

This is the biggest event that has been told of constantly since we came to this world.

I am excited.

Now, I should train my magic in preparation for the Great Demon Lord battle! 

(That’s as usual then.) (Noah)

The usual is important, Noah-sama.

When we were having that conversation…

*Knock knock*

Someone knocked on the door.

Did Lucy come to invite me to train? Or maybe Sa-san came to talk?

I expected it was one of those two.

“Come in.” (Makoto)

“I-I’m coming in…” 

I was mistaken. The one who came in was the Holy Maiden Furiae-san in her nightwear.

  2. Thanks for the chapter ~

    AHHHH IT’S HERE!!! GO IN FOR THE KILL FURI… All things considered, this should have happened a 20 chapters ago… Don’t know why it got delayed lololol

    Also it’s funny how Ira and Makoto look so close with the girls present LMAO, their reactions are priceless lololol

      1. Indeed. In the mangas, Makoto would be the normal and average older brother and Ira would be the “perfect” little sister who sometimes screw up. At those times, Makoto is very reliable and somehow manage to clean the mess of Ira. Among all the heroines (Noah, Lucy, Aya, Sofia, Furiae), I think that their compatibility is the best.

      1. I think it’s a more serious problem though, probably a real start of him losing emotions. He was in spirit state for few days, supposedly with CM100%. Remember how Noah wanted to say something to him in the end?

  5. As always, Fuji-yan is incredibly helpful. Rather, wasn’t he a big fan of Ira? No reaction from him? Though I can’t imagine anyone among the Devilkin would have malicious thoughts towards their great oracle.

    Flag time! Let’s do this! The Great Demon Lord, I mean. No idea how we’re gonna sort this Furiae matter. She might need the veteran maidens in love for the assist.

    Y’know, it’s about time Takki talked about the natures of the goddesses. It’s just idle gossip, but it’s important to be honest. Ira got outed in everyone’s faces and Takatsuki can just sorta tell.

  6. Thank you very much for the chapter. Looks like Furiae’s confession is coming next chapter. However, with the Demon Lord resurrecting, I don’t think there will be much time for romance. And if the time travel theory also ends up coming true, Furiae is really going to get the short end of the stick.

    Okay, confession next chapter ! If it is not the case, it wouldn’t make any sense. She is not trying to take his v-card, so they shouldn’t get interrupted.

    The interactions of Ira and Makoto are way too funny ! Ira is really a ponkotsu goddess ! She is a lost cause, so Makoto should support her. They really are a good match for each other. Also, I think she should admit her mistakes with a more pitiful way. The more pitiful she is, the cuter she is !

  13. Well seems like Makoto has learned exactly how to deal with Ira. Just threaten to tell Althena and you’re golden. Of course Ira messes up. First she sends a dream to every devilkin to gather them all without telling anyone then she forgets to tell people that Iblis is reviving the next day.

    Good thing Fuji-yan and the others are there to help Furi screen the incoming devilkin to see who should be allowed to help her in building a new nation.

    Oh? Furi in just her nightwear going in alone to Makoto’s room? I see where this is going ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  17. Rofl Ira/Makoto interactions are hilarious. Althena-san, you should have offered your hey-for-brains youngest sister for Makoto to be a subordinate. They are fitting so nicely. Kinda still feel bad for Esther-chan, her body is toyed…. Will she become said “unknown naked lady” found near Makoto in Caleneon? To take responsibly for.
    —–
    Furi-chan finally pulled together her bravery and came to confess? In a nightgown, looking like for a yobai? Feels like it will be another reason to preserve Makoto’s v-pass to wizardry, be it “Holy MAIDEN really needs to stay virgin”(poor Anna/Noel/Furi, more so Noel after ” Oracles can be nonvirgins though?©Eir” is revealled), or girls force her in their clamslam club, or Great Sage rushes in(worry about her ‘lover’, just got from the mission). Or Makoto himself gently stops her, Bro-code and all, “settle things with Sakurai, Princess. I only did what a knight should do”

    1. What are you reading?

      Light Hero would never have been possible. Do you see any signs that Sakurai liked her as a romantic interest? Their surroundings are the ones that arbitrarily put them together. Sakurai is attractive enough to gain Althena’s attention. Any gesture by Furiae looks like seduction to everyone else. So when Sakurai and Furiae are casually chatting (usually about Makoto and adventuring) it creates misunderstandings. Also, Makoto at one point thought Lucy was in a harem party before she joined him and Sophia was Sakurai’s marriage partner.

      Furiae liked Makoto since chapter 136. That indescribable face she made similar to Sophia is a dead giveaway (same expression used when Sophia fell in love).

  19. Oh I get it, the narrative drive to block all romantic progress with crises ever escalating in seriousness with Makoto’s current strength is what will ultimately summon the demon lord. Maybe it’s even like a hidden feature of his RPG skill; PG 13 rating with level scaling encounters.

  20. Thanks for the chapter! Man, things are starting to heat up(in more ways than one too xD). I take it that a country building arc is going to start after this one, and as much as I look forward to that, I can’t wait to see whether or not the prophecy regarding Sakurai comes true, and if it does, the events that lead to it.

    If anything, I think that the devils interfering after seeing what the goddesses do might be the deciding factor, and Makoto might have to try and stop them rather than the demon lord, but who knows. The only thing I know for certain is I’m really looking forward to it!

  21. Thanks for the chapter!!!!
    lets hope he finally realizes that the feelings she had for sakurai were like a friend or someone who she felt indebted to. Cuz the main reason why he won’t let her into the harem is that he thinks of her as sakurai’s girl and he doesn’t want to ntr his bud thats why he didn’t synchro with nina. he’s already synchroed with furiae so she should already be in the harem. I wonder if his synchro powers increase now that he has 999 proficiency.

    1. Agreed, but it really should have happened much earlier. It was long overdue. He also saw her panties a couple of times and groped her.

      I think the soul book has display limits. It was 99 before Noah modded it, then its stuck at 999. So its possible he could have 1300 and it would still display 999.

    Already blackmailing a goddess. These Ira and Makoto interactions are probably going to end up making him infamous in a bad way. Mad Hero that blackmails goddesses or another marriage with an oracle at this rate.

    Furiae just keeps getting cuter each each chapter. That’s already at the level of Hinata whenever Naruto comes too close, then fainting afterwards. 100% sure Furiae and Makoto will be interrupted. There is super sense Aya and overpowered Lucy who usually come into Makoto’s room anyway. Just hope she can get her confession through before that.

    Well it doesn’t activate often though. He’s mostly dense. But with “Clear Mind %100” it’s not shown on his face so i’m okay with it. He is not one of those cliche harem protagonists that go “Eh?Eeeeeeeeeh?!” at everything
