WM – Chapter 222: Takatsuki Makoto is pressed to choose

“…Can you please go 1,000 years into the past, save Hero Abel…and save the world?” (Althena)

Althena-sama silently proclaimed.

But now that I look properly, her expression had slight anguish.

Everyone in the church was looking at me who was at the very back seats. 

Everyone’s waiting for my answer.

Haah…I have no choice but to go.

I scratched my head as I headed to the platform where Althena-sama is.

“Hero Makoto…”

Someone grabbed my arm.

“Sofia…” (Makoto)

“Are you…going?” (Sofia)

She looked at me with a face as if on the verge of tears, so I couldn’t respond immediately.

“Depending on the conditions.” (Makoto)

I answered with a vague smile.

I slowly walk through the church.

By the time I noticed, Lucy, Sa-san, and Furiae-san were following along.

Well, that’s fine. 

I stood in front of the platform, at the very front of Althena-sama.

“Althena-sama, there’s a number of things I want to ask.” (Makoto)

“I will answer.” (Althena)

She most likely already knows my question, but Althena-sama nods heavily.

“If I go 1,000 years into the past, will I be able to return to the present?” (Makoto)

This is the most important point.

If I am the only one who can change the past, I have no choice but to go.

But…I would like to be spared from a one-way trip.

“I -as the Destiny Goddess- shall answer that question…” (Ira)

Ira-sama silently proclaimed.

“The current era is the Light Era where us Holy Gods rule the world. That’s why it is easy to send you 1,000 years into the past… But the era 1,000 years in the past is the Dark Era where the Devils rule. The influence of us Holy Gods towards the mortal realm was extremely weak… In order to utilize power that’s on the level of time travel, it would require 100 years for the light to increase after the Great Demon Lord has been defeated…” (Ira)

“N-No way!” (Aya)

Sa-san screamed in a subdued voice.

“In other words…” (Lucy)

Lucy’s voice was trembling.

“Takatsuki Makoto, you won’t be able to return to the present…” (Ira)

Ira-sama’s words weighed heavily on me.

…Oi oi, are you serious? 

“My Knight! Refuse! There’s no need for you to suffer that!” (Furiae)

Furiae-san shouted.

It is true that…no matter how you cut it, it is too unreasonable.

They are basically telling me ‘Sacrifice yourself for the sake of the world’.

I looked straight at the Sun Goddess without saying anything.

Althena-sama must understand what’s in my mind already.

“I will grant your wish, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Althena)

Althena-sama said.

“My wish…huh.” (Makoto)

I don’t need gold or fame.

Althena-sama has a face that says she already knows that as she continues speaking.

“I will remove the limitations regarding the believers of the Goddess Noah.” (Althena)

“?!” (Makoto)

“From here on, it doesn’t matter how many believers Noah gets.” (Althena)

“…I see.” (Makoto)

That’s certainly a big merit. 

I have been the only believer until now. 

I couldn’t increase the amount of believers.

Even so…

“Is that all?” (Makoto)

Most of the residents of the West Continent are devoted to the Goddess Church.

It is hard to increase the amount of believers themselves because Noah-sama is being treated as an Evil God.

That’s why her eyes fell onto me -an otherworlder.

“Of course, that’s not all. We will welcome Noah as the Eight Goddess of the Goddess Church in this continent. In other words, she won’t be an Evil God, but an official religious target.” (Althena)

“I see…” (Makoto)

This is impressive.

It is like going from being an Evil God all the way to state religion all of a sudden.

““Wa?!””

The ones who reacted to the words of Althena-sama even more than me were the people in the church.

Obviously. 

The existence that they were taught was an Evil God will now be a target for prayers. 

When I look by my side, there’s Lucy and Furiae-san at a loss for words.

Princess Noel at the platform seems to also be shocked by this.

(This is on a whole other level…) (Makoto)

This is without doubt the biggest of rewards. 

But if she is going this far…

“You might as well just free Noah-sama from the Deep Sea Temple…” (Makoto)

“That…we can’t do.” (Althena)

Althena-sama answered my mutter.

“What? So stingy.” (Makoto)

““Wa?!””

Althena-sama doesn’t seem to be bothered by my rude statement.

It was actually the people around who were taken aback.

Althena-sama approached me and whispered in my ear.

“I also thought that and asked for the permission of my father the God King… Then, that damn father said: ‘The condition for releasing her is for her to marry me, so no’! Noah is my childhood friend, you know! Even though it is already painful that he is trying to make moves on my childhood friend, he hasn’t reflected at all on his illegitimate child matter! That stupid old man!!” (Althena)

“Althena-sama…your speech pattern is haywiring.” (Makoto)

“…I’m sorry.” (Althena)

Althena-sama slowly slides away.

…This Goddess has it rough.

“Now, what will you do, Takatsuki Makoto?” (Ira)

Ira-sama asks.

“Makoto…are you going?” (Lucy)

“Hero Makoto…” (Sofia)

The uneasy voice of Lucy reached my ears, and by the time I noticed, Princess Sofia had grabbed my sleeve.

Now, what should I do?

This is troubling…

But the ‘most important person’ to make the final decision is not here.

I can’t decide this without consulting with her.

I glance at the Sun Goddess’s eyes.

“Right, we should call her.” (Althena)

Althena-sama puts her right hand to the front and a giant rainbow colored magic circle appeared.

Descend, Goddess Noah.” (Althena)

The church grows noisy at the words of Althena-sama.

‘…The descent of an Evil God?!’

‘This is the Great Church of the Holy Maiden Anna though’.

‘What kind of fearsome appearance does it have?’.

I heard those comments. 

Light overflows from the rainbow colored magic circle.

I could hear the sounds of gulping.

“I was called and I came! Yan yan yaaaaan!” (Noah)

Noah-sama jumped out with good energy together with an enthusiastic shout.

“““……”””

The tension of an Evil God coming out and the gap of Noah-sama jumping out had turned the atmosphere in the church weird.

Wait, Noah-sama?

Can you please not do that in a serious scenario? 

Ira-sama held her head, and Althena-sama was expressionless.

“You missed that one, Noah-sama.” (Makoto)

“Oh my, really?” (Noah)

Noah-sama seemed to not mind it and swung her hair as she smiled.

She is as beautiful as always.

Lucy and Sa-san by my side were also at a loss for words.

Haah…did they get disillusioned by the Goddess I follow?

I had a wry smile as I turned to my party members. 

“Hey, Lucy, Noah-sama is like this, but she is normally more serious—eh?” (Makoto)

Lucy collapsed straight to the floor.

“Eh?! Lucy?! Oi, get a hold of yourself!” (Makoto)

I hurriedly picked her up and confirmed her face, and her eyes were rolled up, drooling from her mouth, unconscious.

 What’s happening?! 

“Aah…Aaaah…Aah…” (Aya)

Sa-san was just standing there, letting out groans with blank eyes.

“Sa-san?! Are you okay?!” (Makoto)

I looked around not knowing what to do while still holding Lucy up.

“Wuuuh…Uaaah…” 

“Aah…Aaaaaaahh!” 

“…Kihi! Kihihihi…”

The people in the church were all turning weird.

W-What this?! 

“Noah!!!” (Althena)

Althena-sama shouted with a voice that could break eardrums.

“What are you doing appearing in your true form in the mortal realm?! Hide your true form at once! Everyone here has gone insane!” (Ira)

Ira-sama raised her voice.

Eh…insane?

“Aah, now that you mention it, I did appear the same way when I met Makoto.” (Noah)

Noah-sama mutters as if unamused by this, and her appearance turned half-transparent. 

“See, this is okay, right?” (Noah)

“It is not at all! What are we going to do now?! The people here are the leading people of the West Continent, you know?!” (Ira)

“Noah-sama…bring my comrades back to normal please.” (Makoto)

I complained to my Goddess as well. 

“Can’t be helped.” (Noah)

Noah-sama snapped her fingers.

Time Spirits, turn back time.” (Noah)

The surroundings were covered in rainbow light. 

In an instant, my sense of direction from all sides was gone.

The air turned into a strange viscous sensation.

The strange sensation soon subsided, the light disappeared, and returned to how it was before.

“E-Eh?” (Lucy)

“Hm?” (Aya)

Lucy and Sa-san were moving their heads around restlessly. 

“Lucy, Sa-san!” (Makoto)

What a relief! 

They regained their consciousness.

The people around seem to have gone back to normal too.

“Noah, you…” (Ira)

“What, got a problem?” (Noah)

“We have to talk later, Noah.” (Althena)

Ira-sama and Althena-sama complained to Noah-sama. 

I was in a daze while listening to this.

I don’t understand how at all, but I do have a grasp of what happened.

Turning back time —a miracle of a God.

It is one of the spells to revive the dead.

What a spell to use the moment you descend.

Also, she passed it by as if nothing, but what’s Time Spirits?

My brain couldn’t keep up.

While I was still confused, Noah-sama spoke to me.

“See, properly back to normal, right?” (Noah)

Noah-sama is waving her hand with a smile, but she messed up, didn’t she?

This Goddess…

“Hey hey, Makoto, the Goddess you follow is…you know…” (Lucy)

Lucy whispers into my ear. 

Now that she mentions it, this is the first time everyone meets Noah-sama.

“Geez, don’t talk about her like that.” (Makoto)

“You praise her a whole ton, so I imagined a good Goddess-sama though…” (Aya)

“I am beginning to feel like My Knight is being deceived by a bad Goddess…” (Furiae)

Even Sa-san and Furiae-san?! 

Making them go insane the first thing they met left a way too bad of a first impression…

The people around were going: ‘That’s an Evil God…’ and ‘How fearsome…’.

Noah-sama herself is acting as if it is nothing.

This is bad, Noah-sama~.

Everyone is scared.

She must have heard my voice in my mind, Noah-sama tilted her head and placed a finger on her cheek and went ‘hmm’ as she walked slightly forward on the platform.

“Everyone~, I am Noah☆. Nice to meet you♡.” (Noah)

She winks.

The next instant, a refreshing wind blew, and a flowery scent took over.

It was as if we were in a flower bed…wait, there really are flowers blooming?! 

A-An illusion, huh…

“Aah…Noah-sama…” 

“How beautiful…”

“I will convert to you…”

The eyes of the people in the church have turned to hearts.

Uwah, they easily got Charmed.

“This is kinda suspicious…” (Lucy)

“Something smells…” (Aya)

“That’s an enemy…” (Furiae)

Lucy, Sa-san, and Furiae-san didn’t get charmed though.

“Oh my, that’s sad. Even though I have been watching you all this whole time.” (Noah)

Noah-sama jumped off from the platform and came near us.

“““?!”””

Lucy, Sa-san, and Furiae-san shook.

“Hey, Lucy-chan, Aya-chan, let’s get along, okay? How about converting to me?” (Noah)

“…U-Uhm…” (Lucy)

“T-This is scary…Takatsuki-kun.” (Aya)

Lucy and Sa-san were being hit by the Divinity of Noah-sama.

“Noah-sama, please stop trying to get the high ground on my friends.” (Makoto)

I pulled this Goddess away.

What is this Goddess doing?

“Eeh, I was simply recruiting them…” (Noah)

“I will invite Lucy and Sa-san.” (Makoto)

“It has been a while since I have been in the mortal realm, so I got excited~☆” (Noah)

“Way too excited.” (Makoto)

I pulled Noah-sama to the platform.

Of course there’s Althena-sama there as well.

“Now, Noah, order your Apostle. Tell him to go 1,000 years into the past.” (Althena)

Althena-sama says.

“Hm? I don’t wanna.” (Noah)

“What did you say?” (Althena)

Noah-sama easily rejected Althena-sama.

“Noah-sama?” (Makoto)

Becoming the 8th Goddess of the Goddess Church and getting the chance to obtain many believers.

That should be the long desire of the Titan Gods that are treated as Evil Gods.

If the believers of Noah-sama were to increase in numbers, the Titan Gods would be able to gain strength.

I thought I would be ordered to do it as if it was natural though…

“Makoto, you decide for yourself.” (Noah)

“…” (Makoto)

“Noah…what are you thinking here?” (Althena)

The voice of Althena-sama grows stricter.

But Noah-sama had the same usual shudder inducing gentle smile like the time we first met.

Her white and pristine hand touched my cheek.

“Makoto, it is okay for you to decide. Save the world, or destroy it…” (Noah)

Her smile didn’t have a single shadow of doubt. 

Noah-sama had given me a heavy choice.

    1. I’m intrigue of the “time spirit”, so how many Spirits there are? , man my gaming minds is in chaos 🤓😂. I can’t wait makoto controls all the spirits in the world.

      There still too few clues to make theory 🤔🤔

      Liked by 9 people

      1. My theory is makoto will use time spirit to go back time or he freeze himself using time spirit that the great sage keep his body in the coffin.. (this is not spoiler thou probably because it is my theory)
        There is a lot of hints when I reread the wn and the great sage knows the ability of makoto without using appraisal and she knows him that she always spoil him alot

        Like

      2. I don’t think he has that ability, to time freeze himself or time travel using time spirit cause you know he don’t have an elemental affinity for space and time unless he was given an affinity by noah beforehand. But if not then controling time it’s trouble like in the Griffon arc where makoto controls fire which his no affinity from it, then burn himself.

        Like

      3. The thing is, on the fire spirits? That wasn’t because he have no affinity with them. On the contrary, the fire spirits loved him. Problem is, they burn him on contact and they’re very touchy feely. Combine that with the fact that the gryphon incident was before he can even see water spirits, that disaster was inevitable (at least with water spirits he only get drenched). When he did it again with a budding contract with Lucy (the attack on Makkaren) though, things went much better, because he can actually see them and get them to behave. And just before the Beast King, in Laphroaig ruins, it’s clear that the water spirits get rather jealous when Makoto decided to use fire magic (read : ask the fire spirits for help).

        So the question is, just how much of an affinity does Makoto have for spirits in general? At the very least, it’s clear that he has great affinity with Fire and Water, he just lack innate sight for non-water spirits. And remember earlier, the Titan old man said that he’s loved by spirits. He said this in general term, not just water spirit.

      4. Good point, but just how would makoto to be able to access the the time spirit??, he can access the fire spirit because of lucy, ( body pact). That’s the point in my word affinity(access) . True his love by spirits just like just in state of the titan giant but even thou he is love, there’s still a consequence, controlling it,( just like in griffon arc, he was burned cause he was loved). Without access there’s no proficient to train. How would makoto travel he’s not so sure of how would he control it. In the fire spirit case, he had access to it and be able to request there power but still makoto is still having a hard time controlling it, how would makoto control it if he didn’t experience controlling at first. If he was able to find someone in the past like lucy but have the power of time rather than fire. He needs a pact to it?? How makoto do it?? Or what will be the consequences of controlling time?? ( well he be stop aging, like in lucy case he burned) will the certain host help makoto travel back to the present?.🤓🤔🤔. If he was given an affinity ( access) beforehand, plot holes will be reduced and time travel be possible.

      5. Yeah, that’s our catch-22. To start using the spirits properly, he need to be able to see them. To be able to see them, he needs to be able to use the related magic. And to use the related magic he either need the proper magic skill…, or the spirit magic skill, but he can’t use the spirits properly, bringing us back to the start. The only way to cut into the requirement loop is by somehow obtaining the related magic skill.

        And really, the possible side effect of using time spirit blindly? Too many possibilities, some of which can be horrific. Maybe he’d end up with some sort of Merlin sickness.

      9. The regigigas titan ossan said in order for Makoto to see all spirits of any color, he would need to be a god. Otherwise he would need to have 100 or was it 105 magic proficiency in the skill. All spirits are interested in him according to Rosalie when they were alone together. Unlike Rosalie who forcefully teleports spirits to do her bidding, Makoto is a titan god believer and spirits really like him more so other spirit users it seems (he’s an all around a nice guy not being domineering). The spirits like him a bit too much on the level of yandere lol.

        Water spirits: lets stay together forever under the sea.
        Fire spirits: let’s burn together and party.

        Makoto is really limited by the number of skills he has as a mortal. He only has water magic beginner. Time and teleport magic work differently than destiny magic is what I think. Lucy does not have teleportation skills, but was able to learn it. The only requirement seems to be having a large amount of mana and elves in this series is known to have plenty. So in due time, Makoto could learn it too by using the spirits mana.

        If only he got fire magic beginner and wood magic beginner from their goddesses by saving those two countries…. our boy Makoto needs to catch a break. There’s at least 7 goddesses, so maybe at least 7 different types of spirits like the Golden Sun gba series.

    1. Rosalie made it seem like his Spirit user skill wasn’t just Water spirits, and that he should have been able to use Fire too, I guess the only limit is his own effort. He’s gotta start raising the other proficiency levels.

      Liked by 2 people

      1. It’s been clearly demonstrated though, that he can use spirits other than water. The issue is spirits seem to love pranking him while he’s still unaware of them. Exhibit A would be the gryphon incident (which is confirmed later during the attack on Makkaren), another would be when he was still learning spirit magic, which ends with him and Emily getting drenched.

        So yeah, basically spirit magic allows him to use the power of any spirit. Water magic allows him to use water magic (duh) and see water spirits (by raising his proficiency), facilitating the use of water elemental spirit magic.

        The problem is, how is he going to raise the other proficiency without the related skill?

        Like

      2. Those early examples were him using Spirit Language to force the nearby spirits to do his bidding, he couldn’t even see them at the time, so maybe he needs to try talking to the other, still invisible to him, elemental spirits. Just use them blindly until he gets some proficiency to work with.

        Like

      3. How much proficiency is enough to be considered “some proficiency to work with” though? IMO, that’d be 105 proficiency, which is hardly some. 105 since it’s only at that point can Makoto start seeing the related spirits, and he really doesn’t have any other skills to work with (otherwise, the whole blind training idea wouldn’t be necessary). I don’t imagine it’d end up well for him.

        Like

      4. He does, at least for water spirits. And nothing given so far imply anything different about the other spirits. Only that there are other ways to see spirits beside proficiency, contracts being one of them.

        And serious question : what is even the point of proficiency if it’s neither enough to see the related spirit or accompanied by the appropriate skill? Even assuming that proficiency can be brute-forced using Spirit Magic, it would mean grinding blind until he can see the spirits, with the attendant risks.

        Like

      5. There’s a limit to the contracts one can have, and the only other ways he’s seen spirits involved synchronizing with stronger magic users. Raising his proficiency to 105, like you say, should let him see the other spirits on his own. He technically should be seeing more than Fire Spirits whenever he’s around Lucy as it is, she has affinities for all magic, after all.

        Like

      6. Yeah, it does raise a question as to why Lucy only let him see fire spirits. It might have to do with how she’s only really trained in fire (her earth magic is coming along quickly, but that’s recent). Maybe once she’s better at the other elements Makoto would also be able to see other spirits.

      7. @archeisse

        The incident with Emily wasn’t a prank though. Makoto was using Spirit Language at the time, which was essentially a “command” to the Spirits, and the Spirits do not like being ordered around. Metaphorically speaking, he was being annoying and the Spirits smacked him upside the head to vent their irritation.

        Like

      1. He could also use both of them. Maybe he won’t be able to use Time Spirits properly, and he will only be able to slow down his time like 20 times slower. A combination of freezing+stopping his own time might be useful.

  3. Hmm so now we have confirmation that time spirits exist…..What are the odds that getting sent back in time somehow enables Makoto to learn Time related magic and so he just madly trains that prof up like he did with Water magic to the point he can basically become a time spirit and uses that to come back to the present?

  4. Makoto can’t come back to the present, huh. I know a light novel where the main character stops his own time to return to his era, so I guess it will be something similar. Another option would be to abandon his humanity and transform himself into a race that has a long lifespan (vampire maybe ?, half-spirit ?).

    Also, Noah really looks like an Evil God and a Bad Goddess in the eyes of his harem, huh.

    Why did Noah not order Makoto to go to the past ? Did she have a specific reason or is it really because she just don’t like to order Makoto ?

      Anna chased him after finished some of her works in building a country, by freezing herself (since she’s not an immortal). The alternative plan of this is clearing that dungeon who rewards immortality after all.

      Also I don’t think Makoto=Abel, but some part of Makoto exploits were fused into the legends of Abel (Remember how Great Sage said that Abel is a cautious hero? Makoto is the type of gamer to clear preparations and side quests before facing down Bosses)

    Well atleast he has the choice. Sooooo if makoto ever travels back in time then wouldnt that mean that he has no real direct support from the goddesses? Since noah, who he follows, is currently on the other side of the war? Im excited as to how this plays out.

  8. Noah-sama soo cute.

    A Theory struck me while I was reading this chapter. The main points which have led me to conclude in this theory are as follows:

    Makoto always choses the hardest option since it is the most interesting to him. Thus he would chose to go back in time.

    Now once he goes back in time according to Ira it would take at least 100 years for the Godesses to gain enough power to send him forwards in time. Now my theory is based on the assumption that since the author has spent 200+ chapters building the relationship between Makoto and Lucy, Aaya, Sophia and Furiae he would not simply let it end like this. Thus since they can’t be send back in time with him, He should be able to somehow meet them again in the future.

    Now, the conclusion I have derived is on the following basis:

    First, Great Sage Sama was exceptionally kind to Makoto, even if you consider that she sees him as a deluxe wine her affections cause the surrounding people to see him as a lover, which isn’t normal.

    Second Great Sage Sama mentions outside the world perspective even though Makoto has never told her that .

    These two points leads me to believe that Makoto and Great Sage Sama met in the past and were perhaps lovers.

    Finally, when Makoto goes along with Furiae to Great Sage Sama’s room he finds a Coffin in her room. As far as I am aware the contents of the coffin was not mentioned.

    Thus, my theory is that Makoto goes to the past. Inadvertently seduces the Great Sage. Has her turn him into a vampire and rest in the coffin until present Makoto travels to the past. After which he will be awoken by Great Sage.

    One flaw that I can find in this theory is that he would lose his spirit user ability which he was not willing to do the last time such an option came up. Though this entire theory is based on the assumption that the author would not like to waste 200+ chapters of relationship building. The author can always pull a G. R. R. Martin and simply let him live in the past. Though I personally don’t think that it is likely. Please tell me if I missed anything or made any wrong assumptions.

    Thanks soo much Reigokai. Keep up the good work.

    2. Here’s my take on this chapter.

      It is said that they can bring Makoto 100 years to the past but not vice versa. Following this is Noah showing the power of time spirits.
      SO my guess is Makoto saves Abel or becomes Abel and after doing that goes to the Sea temple to temporarily release Noah to let him go back to the present.
      The reason why Noah is key here is because she was trapped for 1000 years in that temple meaning that unlike the other goddesses Noah is strong enough even with the presence of the Demons.

      An alternative may be that Makoto grinds for an extra 100 years of life after saving Abel so that he can travel back into the future or Noah putting him in a cryogenic state making him go back. Too many time theories could be used but what’s important is that godesses can manipulate time. Well we won’t know for certain since the WN is ongoing.

      I might also be just talking out of my ass and Noah is also weak during that period.

    Noah is being Noah. Titan gods and their apostles love freedom more than anything. Noah never really ordered Makoto to do anything except sealing his full spirit transformation and to not die which he broke.

    I feel like Noah slyly gave Makoto a hint to coming back to the present with time spirits. If the holy goddesses are weak 1,000 years ago, then titan gods would be able to help when they are stronger under devil rules. It would explain why Cain is so strong being a titan god’s apostle. Or Makoto can become an undead… like Great Sage in the worst case scenario.

    The strangest part is how Makoto never got an RPG option asking if he would go back to the past or not??? What’s up with that?

  19. “Now, Noah, order your Apostle. Tell him to go 1,000 years into the past.” (Althena)

    Allow me to properly expand this statement, as some context is missing:

    “Now, Noah, ORDER your Apostle that we kidnapped against his will and thrust into this world to be used as a pawn, but also threw away due to his lack of skills. Your Apostle, who saved like 3 or 4 of our countries from destruction up to now when our own worshipers failed to do so and discriminated against him. Your Apostle, who saved the life of our best hero when he was fated to die and us gods were already preparing to have replaced and turned the tide of the war. Your Apostle, who wound up trading his life to stop that very replacement, who turned out to be a demi-god and my half-brother, when being harassed by the former pope, who was my believer yet I did nothing to stop.

    TELL him to go 1,000 years into the past, throw away the life and relationships he’s managed to build up while fighting as a formerly discarded pawn in this war of ours A SECOND TIME and fix yet another one of us gods’ mistakes, and go win another seemingly impossible, more brutal war for us and with NO hope of return. His rewards will be benefits to his god only, but that’s as it should be, because mortals are inferior to us gods and should do as we say. Also, I probably made this whole ceremony public instead of asking him directly to put him on the spot in front of ALL OF HUMANITY so that if he refuses, everyone will despise and turn against him.” (Althena)

    Did I cover everything? Are we all on the same page about how trashy this situation and Althena are? Regardless of how tough a spot she’s in. Thank goodness Noah seemingly noticed and objected to this. Learn how to ask someone for a (albeit MASSIVE) “favor”.

    1. I think Althena knew what Noah’s answer would be, and just said what she did not as a request to Noah, but to show all of the people there that Noah values personal freedom and that Noah doesn’t want to tell people what to do, even if it’s literally the end of the world.

      And they, knowing Makoto, already understood that he would jump at the chance to see the original great demon lord. So Noah, already knowing what Makoto wants to do, essentially tells him to do what he wants.

    2. It’s like they rehearsed this scene (the holy goddesses) to keep their reputation and slowly incorporate Noah as the eighth pillar goddess. And Noah being the impromptu actor outside of expectations. They showcased the holy goddesses and Noah’s personality to all the major people in that continent.

      The goddesses do have images to uphold in public and are different in private. The structure of their religion is also different. The holy goddesses seems like organized religion, while titan gods seem to be trade guilds of people with similar minds. At least that’s how I see it.

      Noah never really gives oracles or orders to Makoto. This is in-line with her character so far. Makoto is really the only one who nobody can see the future of due to RPG player skill.

      As long as Althena fulfils most or all of Makoto’s demands, he will probably agree to the request. Makoto does have people he cares about deeply like Sophia just like when he accepted the Pope’s suspicious mission (we readers knew it was trap) due it causing problems for her country if templars leave. The issue of the Great Demon Lord affects everyone he knows, so I can’t see him turning it down.

    The time spirit kinda sucks away the tension of whether he can come back or not no? Still I have a feeling that the next arc is gonna sick as h***!

    Makoto has so many choices that he can choose from after being sent back 1000 years ago where the goddesses influence is at its minimum and spirits are thriving in that era. For instance, promoting Noah and spreading her religion through defeating the great demon king or perhaps getting Abel and his team’s help with attacking the undersea temple dungeon to free Noah in that era.

    Even better since there’s a lot more spirit users in that era, he can even learn more about spirit magic from spirit magic experts like Johnny and learn other spirit attributes that’s not water and increase his diversity in his abilities.

It is also pretty obvious that Makoto will get to come back to the present. My guess, considering the coffin in Great Sage’s ice house, is that Makoto will get frozen and preserved there until the present through these 1000 years. Perhaps Abel will make the sacrifice. Anyways, I’m very sad about how the author is handling the story I was enjoying so much up till this point.

Then he can convince her to join the hero or something. After all, if Makoto went to the past but he’s being not on the history book shows that something is wrong about that story.

    (a) Noah does some magic so Makoto can talk to the present Noah while being unable to talk with the past Noah. He has to defeat Cain and past Noah

    And Makoto calling Althena stingy to her face? And getting away with it? Hopefully someone actually noticed, because there’s a lot of audience here. The Sass ignores any boundaries!

    The way Noah made her appearance is, AFAICT, a shout-out to some old anime. Notably, it’s something Arisa (of Death March) also did. You can understand why it caused her goddess cred to devalue.

    Also, Time Spirit! How many types are there exactly? Considering that spirits were said to basically make up the world itself, it would indeed be strange for there to only be elemental ones. It’s also a blatant show of power on Noah’s part. She just casually turned back time despite not being technically part of the ruling pantheon yet.

    Also, ping Reigokai : I’m fairly sure it’s Eighth Goddess rather than Eight Goddess. So Noah would be the Eighth Goddess of Eight Goddesses.

Ira was painted as a perfect idol and yet she’s actually clumsy and failure-prone. The people of the Fire Country was painted as a bunch of brainless muscleheads with no capacity for intrigue, yet the general does know his intrigues and has a sharp mind, and when Makoto came to the Fire Country he immediately had to face the oracle’s schemings. Sofia seemed like a heartless, stuck up queen bitch and yet she’s actually socially inept and under a lot of pressure, and also completely reliant on her skill to keep up image in front of people. There’s also Sakurai. Early on Makoto painted him as just a stereotypical Mr. Popular in their high school and that they’re not even remotely close to each other, yet Sakurai thinks the world of Makoto and actually very dependent on him for moral support. Hell, I’m now expecting some sort of surprise from the annoying delinquent early on (who got kicked out of Rozes and left by his girlfriend, apparently for womanizing).

Still sucks that she can’t be freed but at least Althena tried to get permission before.

It’s his fault that Alex even exists and he still selfishly refuses to free Noah even though it would be such a good bargaining chip to get Makoto to travel to the past. Makoto should just NTR Jupiter and take his harem and place as a god.

    Ah that’s not exactly the most dignified way to make an entrance Noah. All high-tensioned and acting like an idol. Then she makes everyone go insane before undoing their insanity while basically going “Tee Hee! Pero.” and doing that whole winking thing with tongue sticking out and bopping her head all cutesy.

    Anyways so there are TIME spirits? I think I see a possible way Makoto will be able to get back to the present. Just sync with some time spirits or become a Time Spirit King. I mean Noah only forbid Makoto from becoming a WATER Spirit King and not a TIME Spirit King. He might need to reach 1000 magic proficiency first for some qualitative change in his spirit magic but he’s just one point away from that so…

    Well it was kinda funny how Lucy, Sa-san and Furi are wary of Noah not because of how she’s an Evil God but because of women’s intuition. Like they realize she’s gonna be the final boss for Makoto’s affection.

    Also by no means should we underestimate what Makoto could do now, as this is the past where the Holy Gods aren’t ruling, doesn’t that mean nothing can stop him from going SSJ1000 if he finds a way to stay himself?

    Another point of interest is that during that period of time Noah is still quite strong as an Original God, and him being her apostle might in turn give him a huge buff. What if the Noah of that time decides to give him Time magic.

Well it’s not going to be a parallel universe type of thing (like most regressor type stories) because if it was then no matter what he do in that past wont affect their current future, so if the parallel universe is out then the story would better deal with paradox (e.g The goddess should knew who makoto is since they are aware of him in the past saving the hero or the hero)

    1. No they don’t. Goddess’s aren’t aware if Makoto will succeed. They’re sending him because he’s the only one that has even a slightest chance. Because he’s a believer of Noah who isn’t a holy god Ira can’t read his future.

      But she might know if Makoto meets her in the past.Then again if they meet in the past current Goddess’ would already know the result. But since Makoto hasn’t left yet past isn’t changed so it doesn’t include Makoto they aren’t aware of the result. Maybe it will become clear if it’s a success the moment Makoto goes back? Or (if he manages to return) will he return to the moment he went to the past?

      This is why i hate time travel stuff thinking about the details makes my head enter a loop lol

      1. It’s due to RPG player skill that makes Makoto immune to destiny related skills and mental attacks. Ira and Furiae can see RPG player choices, but not their outcome or his fate.

  39. Lucy,Sa-san and Furiae were not charmed because they have seen the final boss(rival)!
    Well jokes on you because there are no love rivals in this novel because Makoto collects them all like Pokemon.

    And i think the reason Makoto noticed the timeline changes was because he’s also the part of the past timeline so probably Great Sage is able to notice the changes as well.

    I know God have their own age system but God King wanting to marry his daughters friend sounds awful. Get a reality check God King

    Thanks for the chapter!

  40. Thanks for the chapter~!

    Still waiting when Makoto can become truly OP by controlling time spirit and doing ZA WARUDO. Time stopping spells definitely existed right?

    Also, why do I have a feeling that Makoto will return not only using time spirit’s power but also somehow have a connection with Naia the moon goddess?

  41. Thanks for the chapter! Things are looking pretty bad for Makoto, I mean from our perspective it’s not bad since we know he’s going to come back somehow, but from his, he has to decide whether he’s going to the past in order to save the world without a way to return. I can’t help but feel bad for him…

    That being said, did Noah just say TIME spirits?! Not gonna lie that sounds awesome as hell, just thinking about what colour they might take, and also who their Great Spirit is, I hope we hear more about that and soon!

  42. Thanks for the chapter! ^^
    Good compensations in an apostle perspective for sure.
    And Noah Makoto combo making everyone crazy from their appearance and behaviour breaking sanity and common sense is funny. x)
    The save or destroy the world at the end with the giant ‘Nope’ to Althena was marvelous! XD
    Will be funny to see Makoto trying to save the face for his Goddess or reprimanding her for jocking and recieving “I was not jocking” with a straight face instead, wonder wich one it will be?
    What kind of other compensation he can get is the question too.
