WM – Chapter 233: Takatsuki Makoto meets Johnny

Sponsored Chapter

Johnny Walker. 

He is the great grandfather of Lucy, and the grandfather of Rosalie-san.

When putting it like that, he sounds like a close person, but in the Legend of Hero Abel, there’s not much information about him.

It wasn’t written when he became his comrade.

He suddenly appeared around the middle part of the picture book.

That’s why I didn’t think I would meet him this soon.

(Well, this in itself is convenient…) (Makoto)

The ones who will defeat the Great Demon Lord are the Light Hero Abel, the Holy Maiden Anna, the Great Sage, the Magic Archer Johnny.

That’s the history that I was told numerous times in the Water Temple.

Johnny Walker is without doubt one of the most important people.

I have managed to confirm his safety.

Hero Abel and the Great Sage-sama have become comrades already.

What’s left is the Holy Maiden Anna.

(This is quite the problem…) (Makoto)

Some stories say that Hero Abel and the Holy Maiden Anna were born in the same village and were childhood friends.

In other words, it would be strange for them to not be together already.

But as of now, the name of the Holy Maiden Anna hasn’t come out from the mouth of Volkh-san, Julietta-san, or Hero Abel.

(Could it be that she died just like the Fire Hero-san…?) (Makoto)

No no, I’m being too hasty here.

Hero Abel being captured at the Demon Lord Castle didn’t show in the picture book, so it should be better to assume that history is already being changed.

I am sure the Holy Maiden Anna is doing well somewhere…I want to believe that’s the case.

I would like to casually get the information out from someone like Julietta-san…

If I use the information of the future too much, my identity will be suspected.

It is fine if I am just suspected, but if I were to explain it as ‘I came from 1,000 years in the future’, they would think I am crazy.

And so, I will leave the matter of the Holy Maiden Anna for later.

More importantly, Johnny Walker comes first.

The legendary magic archer.

But he seems to have a sword hanging around his waist.

I don’t see a bow.

He is surrounded by a lot of people and is eating.

He is an influential person of this city, and it is one of the ‘true comrades’ of the Great Demon Lord subjugation.

It would be better to know him.

Should I greet him?

“I will be going for a bit.” (Makoto)

“Eh? Makoto-sama?” (Momo)

“Makoto-dono, where are you going?” (Volkh)

When I stand up, Momo and Volkh-san ask me.

“I will greet Johnny-san.” (Makoto)

“Eeh~, you have weird taste, Makoto-kun. That guy isn’t courteous -especially to men.” (Julietta)

“Rea…lly?” (Makoto)

But they did say he is a womanizer, so it does sound plausible.

Nothing will begin if I don’t talk to him though.

I slowly approach the big table Johnny is eating at.

There’s a lot of women around him.

Beautiful elves, cat eared and bunny eared cute beastkin girls were surrounding him and pouring him alcohol. 

They are all talking loudly, exchanging drinks, and having fun.

It kinda…reminds me of the group of Sakurai-kun in middle school.


Didn’t I live my life avoiding those types of people?

While at it, even though Johnny is in the middle of that noisy group, he is drinking alcohol as if he is terribly bored.

I can understand why they call him unfriendly.

You would need courage to talk to him within that group…

A while after hesitating, someone slapped my shoulder.

“Oi, Brother, I heard you are the one who saved Volkh and Julietta?” 

When I turned around, there was an old man with a thick beard.

Judging from physical traits, I think he is a dwarf.

His face is packed with personality, but the aura clad around his body also gives out a thick presence.

I can tell that he is a seasoned warrior.

“My name is Makoto. Nice to meet you.” (Makoto)

“I am the Iron Hero, Deckel. Looking forward to working with you.” (Deckel)


The Iron Hero! 

The leader of the other faction I heard of, huh.

He looks really strong, and the mana covering his body is dense. He doesn’t look like the type of Hero that would give up the subjugation of Demon Lords…

“Y-Yeah, same here.” (Makoto)

I shook the hand he stretched out.

“Volkh praised you to high heavens, but you don’t look strong at all! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!” (Deckel)

“I see…” (Makoto)

I was laughed at.

Well, I am used to being seen as weak, so that’s fine though.

“Hey, please stop Volkh and Julietta. They are saying they want to challenge the Demon Lord one more time. Honestly speaking, even the Fire Hero Olga that was so strong wasn’t a match. Defeating a Demon Lord is just delusional.” (Deckel)

“Uhm…” (Makoto)

“Also, I have a daughter that’s about to turn 7 years old. I have to stay alive until she gets big! We should stop the reckless battles! Don’t you think the same?” (Deckel)

“Your daughter…” (Makoto)

I see.

Him not challenging the Demon Lords, him giving up on defeating the Demon Lords, is not because he doesn’t have the courage…

There’s cases where one has a family, and they have something to protect.

“You have a young little sister with you too, don’t you, Brother?” (Deckel)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

Little sister?

I have no siblings.

I am an only child.

“Makoto-sama?” (Momo)

“You have a cute little sister like this.” (Deckel)

Momo came, maybe because we were getting noisy.

Aah, so he thought Momo was my little sister.

We don’t look alike at all though.

Also, I wouldn’t have my sister call me with ‘-sama’.

“Hey, Deckel, don’t put weird stuff in the head of Makoto-kun. We are going to challenge the Demon Lords on our own will!” (Julietta)

Even Julietta-san came.

“You say that, but it was dangerous this time around, right? You should stop.” (Deckel)

“Don’t wanna! If Heroes were to give up, that’s when the world really is done for!” (Julietta)

“Oi oi, Deckel, Julietta, calm down.” (Volkh)

Volkh-san calms the two who were arguing.

Hero Abel is not participating in this and simply watching.

“Hey, you are going to give up on defeating the Demon Lords, right?” (Deckel)

“You are going to be fighting the Demon Lords, right, Makoto-kun?!” (Julietta)

Deckel-san and Julietta-san were pushing on on me.

Words floated in front of me.

[Which side will you take?]

-Iron Hero

-Wood Hero


But I tilted my head.

Defeat the Demon Lords? Don’t defeat them?

No no no, that’s not it right, RPG Player-san? 

My answer is…

“I will defeat the Demon Lords, and then defeat the Great Demon Lord, you know?” (Makoto)

That should be the right choice.

We have the Savior Abel with us after all.

But the moment I said that, the two had shocked faces.

The conversations around stopped.

Everyone in the dining hall looked over here.

“No no, Brother, no matter how you slice it, that’s…” (Deckel)

“Y-Yeah… The Great Demon Lord is the God of the demons, you know? That’s just…” (Julietta)


Are there no people who would say they want to defeat the Great Demon Lord?

Looks like my answer wasn’t the right one.

“Ooh, human Hero-sans, I don’t mind you guys getting heated up on your own, but this is the city of us demi-humans. I will have people who cause trouble leave, got it?” 

A number of beastkin men heard our conversation and came our way.

People that were at the table of Johnny-san.

“Don’t think something as stupid as fighting the Demon Lords. Humans are weak after all.” 

“In the first place, before speaking about the Great Demon Lord and the Demon Lords, you haven’t even defeated their generals.” 

“How about speaking nonsense after freeing the people of the human farm?” 

The other beastkin that were around Johnny-san also came.

Judging from the aura around their bodies, they are all quite the strong ones.

Deckel-san and Julietta-san were making awkward expressions.

Looks like the standing of the Heroes is low…

At that moment, someone came to the front.

“Makoto-san has defeated one of the generals of a Demon Lord. The Impenetrable Demon Balam!” (Abel)

“That’s right! Makoto-sama is super strong!” (Momo)

Hero Abel and Momo.


Every one of the Heroes made surprised expressions beginning with Volkh-san.

Wait, I didn’t want you to say that! 

I don’t want to spread my name in this era.

…I should have them keep their mouths shut next time.

“You…defeated the Impenetrable Demon Balam…?” 

“Well, yeah…” (Makoto)

One of the beastkin asked, and I answered reluctantly. 

“I can’t believe that!” 

“Is this skinny dude really that strong?” 

“The Impenetrable Demon Balam was one of the oldest generals of the Demon Lords.” 

“Okay, then I will test his mettle. I who is said to be the right arm of Johnny-sama!” 

I feel like this is going to turn troublesome.

“Wait wait, you must not. Makoto-kun is tired from the long journey.” (Julietta)

“He is the powerful warrior that defeated a Demon Lord General, right? This is just some light workout.” 

Julietta-san tried to stop it, but the beastkin were burning.

This reminds me of that time with Geralt-san.

Or more like, this beastkin-san seems really strong judging from his aura.

‘Can I avoid this encounter somehow?’, is what I was thinking when…

“E-Enemy attaaaack!!” 

The lookout ran in with a pale white face.

“E-Enemy attack! Enemy attack! Everyone, run away!!” 

Everyone in the dungeon city stirred up at this.

The Earth Hero-san and the Wood Hero-san’s expressions changed.

Same for the beastkin people and the Iron Hero-san.

Everyone is putting their hands on their weapons.

“Well, don’t panic. We have the patriarch right now.” 

“What came? A dragon? Demons?” 

“Don’t make that pathetic face. Johnny-sama is here after all…”

The elves and the beastkin must trust Johnny-san a lot. They were slightly calm.

But the next words made them change the color of their faces.

“D-Demon Lord! The Demon Lord Cain has come!!” 

Screams echoed in the dungeon city.

  1. Damn just few clicks from….its just too fast

    Thanks for chapter…
    Btw is there any forums there where you can tell spoilers in this novel?

  2. It is fine if I am just suspected, but if I were to explain it as ‘I came from 1,000 years in the future’, they would think I am crazy.
    You are already crazy, Makoto !

    “D-Demon Lord! The Demon Lord Cain has come!!”
    Oh, looks like Makoto will meet his senpai next chapter .

    Judging from physical traits, I think he is a dwarf.
    His face is packed with personality, but the aura clad around his body also gives out a thick presence.
    Wait, Makoto finally met a dwarf and spoke to one after 233 chapters ! This is a miracle !

    “You have a cute little sister like this.” (Deckel)
    Momo came, maybe because we were getting noisy.
    Aah, so he thought Momo was my little sister.
    How cute !

  3. the time has come… Time for makoto to face cain and possibly have contact with noah of past… also I think that the truth isnt that it is abel’s party but that its makoto’s party cause great sage follows makoto and I doubt that johny would follow current abel

    1. I don’t know why I think that Jonny following Makoto is just what should be happen.

      Makoto says that all the members of the legendary party are there except for Anna…..I was thinking this but isn’t Abel behaving so girly,what if Abel is in fact Anna and Makoto is Abel.

      1. that is highly possible just like johny being makoto’s disciple in terms of spirit magic cause he is known as archer and spirit user while now he is swordsman

  4. Thanks for the chapter!

    I haven’t read ahead at all, but I’m beginning to think that Abel was never the Light Hero, he was only ever the Lightning Hero, and the whole Light Hero thing got retconned in to hide Makoto’s presence.

    That would be one possible explanation why Abel never stuck around to father children. He wasn’t what the stories said.

    1. Also, are we really, really sure that Abel is in fact male? From chapter 227:

      > He is so handsome that you could mistake him for a girl, but I could tell that he is a man from his muscles and his chest.

      I dunno but I don’t trust Makoto’s judgment 100% here. 95% at most. And if Abel is female then Anna might not exist at all.

      1. Why does this seem like it’s the truth?

        Also, “Abel” was described in past chapters as someone with a few screws loose, and had no fear, which is a characteristic that Makoto became known for. However, the real Abel is far from that indifferent fearless adventurer described in their history.

        1. Not that we’ve been told, but Setekh, Shuri, Bifrons, and the Great DL Iblis were all taken out by Abel. I don’t see them getting back up if Makoto used his god killing dagger, sharp enough to cut fate.

      1. Bifrons was dead though, not sealed. Just that his corpse kept leaking miasma. His planned revival earlier was using something like Iblis’ resurrection magic.Iblis was also dead, just resurrecting. So the issue is probably more that Light Hero can’t kill things as completely as the soul eating technique rather than Abel’s still-not-shown sealing skills.

      2. No one has the light attribute yet maybe that’s why but the Demon that he already killed is dead as well in the future.

        1. Souls offered to the Goddesses are reborn as pawns of the Goddesses, so he’s probably back, but the story hasn’t specifically pointed anyone out as being his reincarnation.

          1. It doesn’t matter him as a Demon is dead is what I mean , a lot of high rank demons were killed and remain dead in the future,we will see why Seketh and those that survived are alive.

          2. That’s my point, every Demon Lord killed by Makoto is either twisted over to the Goddess side, or left nothing behind but a magic stone. All Abel’s kills are dead, but they have corpses with power, that need to be further maimed, and then buried under magic seals so they don’t wake back up.

  5. oof finally met his apostle senpai. i wonder how will he interact with him? maybe he will say something like “Hey paisen, let’s head to the water temple now and save Noah-sama!” or something like that? Anyways this is will be his first battle with the demon lords from this era. How much our MC can handle him?

    One of the beastkin asked, and I answered reluctantly.
    “I can’t believe that!”
    “Is this skinny dude really that strong?”
    “The Impenetrable Demon Balam was one of the oldest generals of the Demon Lords.”
    “Okay, then I will test his mettle. I who is said to be the right arm of Johnny-sama!”
    I feel like this is going to turn troublesome.

    Yeah it definetly will become TROUBLE for them

      1. Well, surely he won’t trust Makoto from the start. But if Noah has been shown Makoto’s dagger probably she’ll tell cain that Makoto can be trusted (since he’s also an apostle, he can directly communicate with Noah)

        1. Is possible, just in case Cain is someone who can reason, he lost his sanity when he saw Noah’s real form (in Eir’s words that’s the reason why Cain was going from place to place killing heroes since Noah
          couldn’t control it) ….. that’s the difference between him and Makoto and the main problem.

          I hope today we see what happens.

  6. Thanks for the chapter!
    I hope Makoto can inspire some of the other heroes to fight alongside them, even if they’re not strong enough to subjugate the demon lords by themselves.
    On that note, I’m surprised everyone is so scared of the demon lords, when they’ve been exposed to the idea more than any other time in history

    1. They’ve also been exposed to their strength more than any other time in history. Especially since this chapter implies that nobody like Setekh, Shuri, or Balam has ever been brought down before. Considering that they can’t even defeat the Demon Lords’ confidants, how are they supposed to be any more confident about facing the Demon Lords themselves?

      1. I didn’t even think about that. I guess knowing they’ve been dead for 1000 years and it’s just round 2 would be a bit easier, especially if they’re already aware of the new light hero and his accomplishments

  7. My question from last chapter might have been answered.
    Probably because of the way the demihumans are treating the humans, the humans will begin to discriminate against them in the future.
    Probably the trigger was meant to be Abel saving humanity making the stand of humans higher.
    I wonder if makoto will change something?

    1. If you’re talking about the humans’ standing, don’t forget the gods’ blessings too. It was mentioned during the Symphonia arc, that while demihumans are innately stronger, the presence of divine blessings made the humans effectively stronger. So in the end it comes down to a double-whammy of a human hero bringing down the demons’ rule and the humans becoming stronger as the gods’ influence grow. From there, people probably wouldn’t be quick to forget incidents like this, and since it’s become the hegemony of humans, they took sweet revenge.

      1. Yeah, there’s a lot of hint for that idea if we also count on how Abel’s story was described in the future, but since this is just the start, we can’t safely conclude it for now though.

      1. If we’re talking about that world’s history, AFAIR it was mentioned that Cain is like a brother to Abel at first. I could be wrong, though, and I haven’t re-read it again from the start.

        If we’re talking about this world’s story, it was Cain that killed Abel (as the world’s first murder). They are brothers, and it was pretty much clear that the author based the relationship between the two from this story (quite possibly with some twists as usual).

      2. @savioroffrance, nope, wrong book.
        Naming sense of japanese guys doesn’t really work with non-japanese names, though. Goes the other way around, too, I think, but still.

      3. @savioroffrance : that’s in the Bible, I’m fairly sure the history mentioned earlier has Cain being stopped by Abel, but only after Abel was the only hero left in the world.

        Seriously folks, stop mixing up Abrahamic Religions with Weakest Mage. In religion, including the Bible, Abel and Cain aren’t like brothers but rather they are literally brothers. In Weakest Mage? There was never even any mention about them being related by blood. Or related at all except as enemies since one is a Demon Lord and the other a Hero.

      4. And @Athros, seriously? It doesn’t even make sense for Cain to kill Abel. If that’s true, what about the whole “there is someone waiting for me” bit, do you mean Cain is waiting for Abel to impale himself on his sword or something?

  8. This is too much! I hate cliffs! Just when everything is starting to get good, a fight is about to break out. Go ahead, Makoto and kick your senpai’s ass. Hand him a serious defeat and let’s get this party started. Thanks, Reigokai.

  9. Thank you for the chapter!

    Cain already?! Well, s#!£… or maybe not? This will be interesting, a battle of spirit mages!

  10. So the Magic Archer Johnny is carrying a sword. Well there are a few possibilities I can see for this discrepancy: maybe he just happens to not be carrying a bow with him at this particular moment, maybe he is normally an archer but he can’t use a bow in Laberintos since it’s full of tunnels where it’d be hard to shoot arrows, maybe he’s just too strong that a normal bow wouldn’t last how hard he uses it and he won’t get a good enough bow until later, or history is wrong and only recorded him being an archer because of elven stereotypes. Y’know, the ones: the super proud archers that love nature going, “Trees are pretty. Tra la la!”

    Oi! You there! Deckel! Don’t go trying to raise death flags dammit! Don’t go talking about you having a young child and how you want to stay alive until she grows up. He better not say something like his or his daughter’s birthday are coming up or that he’s thinking of retiring from being a hero.

    Ah so now Makoto’s senpai Cain has shown up. Just how crazy is he I wonder? Some demons Makoto overheard talking about Cain made it sound like the guy can’t even hold a conversation because of how crazy he is. Well anyways this might be a good opportunity for Makoto to show off how powerful he is. Almost everybody is too ground down to even think of opposing the Demon Lords and Iblis and Abel is still too depressed to become any sort of beacon of hope.

    1. Hmm… it’s also possible that the sword can transform to a bow oh and Makoto might just seduce Deckel’s daughter like the airheaded gigolo he is ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      1. Aya is probably not even three years old huh 🤣

        Still in all seriousness, there is a difference. Aya is mentally however old she was before reincarnating plus however old she is supposed to be after all. And physically, she’s more or less how she was before. Not literally physically and mentally single digit years old.

    2. It is also possible it is a magical bow that he could summon anytime. Perhaps that is the reason why he is called magic archer.

    3. I have an odd feeling that with Cain, Makoto will fight crazy with crazy. It’s just that the two crazies are a bit different.

  11. Thanks for the chapter 😀
    And so he shall finally meet his senpai!
    ….huh, if he shows him the dagger, Cain might actually talk to him.
    Hell, if he reveals the demons betrayed Noah, he might go nuts and switch sides!

      1. Oh I was thinking he’d just go ballistic and run off to murder the Demon Lords, not like ask to join the team lol

      1. It depends on HOW crazy. Gibbering idiot? Probably no good.
        Kreig from borderlands crazy?
        Flesh for the organ grinder!

      2. It has nothing to do with beauty though, just the fact that gods are literally out of this world. Whether you look at Noah or Althena or Ira, if you look at their actual, unshielded appearance, you go nuts. It’s why Althena appears blurred by light, and why Noah eventually turned somewhat transparent.

        Looking at a god directly is comparable to looking at one of the bigger things in the Cthulhu Mythos, they drive you insane.

      3. Is he crazy though? The author has a tendency to describe people as one thing and present them as their opposite. The so-called insane and bloodthirsty Cain might turn out to be a scaredy-cat or something. Or a girl.

  12. Senpai kouhai incoming!

    Cain the Evil God Apostle. They say he’s another fanatic and I’m excited to see why. Is he another Makoto or someone similar to Isaac who only preaches the magnificence of Noah?

    Why does Johnny not have a bow though? And where is Anna? Holy moly I have too many questions in my head right now. Anna still not appearing is kinda sus. I’m guessing she’s captured by a demon lord or by the Great Demon Lord himself. You know cause there’s that trope of damsel in distress in RPGs and Abel will have to save her.

  13. The whole team is gathered except Anna …… those kinds of comments turn on the alarms in my head, the fact that Abel is nothing similar to what was believed, his behavior is a bit feminine and that he has healing magic, how to say it. … could it be that Abel is in fact Anna and Makoto is the real Abel?

  14. Deckel is raising death flags… Makoto needs to stop this idiot from joining the fight. It’s time for Makoto to shut up these naysayers and show them the wonders of ice coffins or water dragons.

    Iron Hero and Earth Hero
    Glacial Hero and Water Hero

    All the humans and beastkin have a defeatist mentality. Reminds me of that old saying that “poverty is an economic situation, not a mentality” meaning being poor is a temporary economic situation and that one will overcome it eventually. These folks here need that sort of positive thinking with Makoto here.

    Momo and Abel. The two leaders in Makoto’s secret fanclub in the past.

    1. It’s either a defeatist mentality, or an it’s not my problem mentality. Judging from what is currently happening, the demihumans can probably stay relatively prosperous out of the demons’ sight since they’re able to survive where humans normally can’t (like in Laberintos here). So basically, the demons are a more pressing issue for the humans.

  15. Atlast, senpai notice him.

    I hope makoto has a talk no jutsu to talk things out in a peaceful way

    Thanks for the update

  16. Aww shit. Senpai is here. I wonder if we can chat with Noah through him? Based on his reputation, he is more than a little crazy, so making out of the dialogue options with him safely will require the delicacy of talking to a yandere.

    Takki technically isn’t a follower of Noah anymore, so will he be able to prove his affiliation with the dagger alone?

    As expected, he’s a crazy person even in this crazy hopeless era. Aiming for the golden ending do be like that. Come to think of it, if Balam is considered one of the strongest generals, then Takki do already be on the level of a demon lord.

    Kinda funny how his dynamic with the Light Hero has reversed in this era where he’s very likely the strongest hero while Abel is the weakest.

    1. Oooh.

      Alternatively, Takatsuki goes and picks a fight with his senpai. A duel for the right to be Noah’s follower? Would the rules allow that considering the 1000 year restriction?
      How much of Cain’s strength is based on Spirit Magic? Since as the “king”, Takki certainly outclasses everyone in this one department alone.

      1. What 1000 years restriction. Noah’s new followers restriction is 10 years. Problem is, with what Cain has been doing now and her Evil God reputation, it’s damn difficult to get a new follower even in a thousand years.

          1. It is in the past, so the restrictions haven’t been lifted, it’s true. But there was never any mention about her being restricted to only one follower every 1000 years, which is what I interpret your 1000 year restriction as. It’s only ever been mentioned as 1 follower every 10 years. The question then is, how long ago was Cain made an apostle? Definitely less than 10 since otherwise there’s no problem for Makoto to come to the past as Noah’s follower.

          2. Oh. Now that you mention it, I remember thinking that the old follower would’ve died by the time a new one is eligible. It was probably 100 years.

          3. Hmm, I can’t find it now but let me see. I seem to remember the restriction being mentioned earlier when Makoto brought up converting Aya and Lucy. In any case, I’m fairly sure Noah’s punishment has stayed more-or-less the same in this thousand years, so if it’s said in the present time (future) that her limit is one every ten before it was lifted, it should be the same in the past.

  17. Here’s Johnny!

    Man! I really wanted to say that since yesterday. On the other hand, I guess it’s time for Water spamming! I wonder how they’d react seeing Makoto’s skills.

    1. You can’t spoil me! (since I’m also read up)

      That said, spoiling is against the rules here. There is no spoiler tag sadly. So be careful not to do it (even on accident).

  18. Makoto is seeming important in history now. Noah seemed very scheming and manipulative, so I wonder if she planned any of this. Especially after going back and rereading up to the titan old man part.

  19. so, we finally at point where everything will chage, will makoto kill Cain and prevent massacre of Heroes or will he Fail once again repeat a past mistake and allowing Noah Imprisoned.

  20. Hmm, Johnny appeared in the middle of the story huh. I wonder what the implication is.

    Makoto finally asked the burning question. Seriously, if Anna is Abel’s childhood sweetheart, she should already be part of the party, or at least outside of it but really close. And yet, nobody has even so much as mentioned her. That said, if she’s dead then as I said before it wouldn’t be strange for Volkh and Julietta to not mention her out of consideration for Abel.

    And the Iron Hero is a dorf. Considering Makoto’s impression of him and the Iron Hero’s evaluation of Olga, I wonder how strong Olga was? Honestly, I can understand not wanting to risk your life when you have a daughter to look out for. But if one person having a child means everything ground to a halt? They’ll never get anywhere, when one has their child grow up, another would be with a still-growing child.

    Leave it to Makoto to give an answer even more insane-sounding than anyone expected. The demihumans’ attitude here though, is probably even more of the seeds for their later discrimination. Especially since, well, it’s clear that they discriminate against humans themselves. And so the cycle simply continues. But seriously, so until Balam, there has never been a single casualty among the Confidants? The situation is even more hopeless than it seemed.

    Enter Cain. Time for Makoto to meet senpai.

    1. The Dark Era is really hopeless. It makes me wonder if a Hero with a released Holy Sword is really equal to a Demon Lord or it is just that a Hero only has a chance (thus, they are not equal and the Hero is in disadvantage) to defeat a Demon Lord even with their Holy Sword released.

      1. Well, maybe not really equal and more like closer to equal. Basically it just turns a one-sided massacre into a proper fight, something like that. After all, it’s not a fight if one side has absolutely no chance for victory. Not a proper PVP, as Ainz would say.

        Because seriously, I doubt they never went against Balam with a fully released Holy Sword before, and yet Balam was definitely still around until he hit the ice wall that is Makoto. I imagine going up against Balam’s boss like that has even worse odds. No wonder if Abel is dead it’s checkmate.

      2. it’s like you only get the means to kill the demon lord, and chances just go from 0% to 10%. The status gap is still there.

  21. I’m really excited to see cain. I wonder if Cain will end up being one of the missing classmates, since I think there are still a few missing. Also, I guess I was wrong and it wasn’t holy maiden anna what was killed, so she should still be on the table for ~makotos harem~ the hero party. I’m wondering what cain will do upon seeing makotos knife. I’m imagining Cain as Zerkerlot, but I guess that’s probably not exactly going to be what cain is like. Cain could also be a complete religious fanatic.

  22. Wow, while I was expecting Makoto to meet his senpai at some point I didn’t think it would happen this soon! Is it because he used spirit magic to wipe out a general so Cain is now investigating?

  23. Thanks for the chapter.

  24. We now have three spirit users in one place. I’m half expecting a pitiful slap fight between Jhonny and Cain ordering spirits around before Makoto steps up and shows them how it’s done. Hail to the spirit king.

  25. Thanks for the chapter~!
    If I were Makoto I would have conflicting feelings at the moment. On one hand, you have the opportunity to kill a big threat for the heroes while also freeing the space to become Noah’s believer. On the other hand, you would be making Noah’s watch how her only believer beco.es obliverated.

  26. Thanks for the chapter. While I understand the Iron Hero’s point of view and the demi-humans not being willing to fight, this attitude only prolongs the inevitable. There’s no way the Great Demon Lord will leave them be, especially when someone who will challenge his rule might rise from their ranks. Cain’s appearance should demonstrate that point. I wonder how Makoto will handle his Senpai. Perhaps he’ll convince him to back off by revealing his allegiance to Noah and claim he’s working undercover like he did with Setekh?

  27. Finally encounter with fellow Noah’s followers!
    Will makoto beat the freak out of him? Or he will somehow manage to trick him into misunderstanding? We’ll see in the next chapter(´-﹏-`)

  28. N-N-No way! Where’s the “next chapter” button? Why I can’t find it! I go this far but you said there’s no more at the moment!!? You should just translate 10 chapters a day translator san! My restlessness grows uncontrollably by the time I arrive at the last word of this chapter.

    Thank you by the way, translator-san, for your hard work to deliver this story to us.
    Best regard.
    Your new reader.

  29. I’m curious about several things due to rereading old chapters.

    Sasaki Aya has a hammer that a (Forgot which one) hero owned during Savior Abel’s era.
    Lucy has Johnny’s magic staff.
    The Calamity Witch “mysteriously” disappeared after the Great Demon Lord was defeated.

    I bet we can meet the hero who owned Aya’s hammer.
    Johnny being a magic archer is something to look forward to.
    I imagine Makoto is gonna be disappearing back to the future with the help of the Calamity Witch, who also disappears when Makoto’s job should be finished, when the Great Demon Lord is killed.

  30. It is fine if I am just suspected, but if I were to explain it as ‘I came from 1,000 years in the future’, they would think I am crazy.

    dose’t every think he is crazzy anyway might as well just pull out all the stops& go full blown crazz

  31. “Johnny Walker.

    He is the great grandfather of Lucy, and the grandfather of Rosalie-san.”

    Also a well known brand of scotch.

    1. I already got a little tired of this, it annoys me to think that while the MC works hard in the past, everyone in the present is already beginning to forget him and continue with their lives, by the time he returns he will be just a nuisance because after so many years everyone They already continued without him, someone who knows tell me how many years pass until he returns and how many chapters?

      1. I think you have that wrong my friend? In that the girls aren’t forgetting about Makoto they are simply ‘COPING’ with his loss in the same way that women cope with men going off to war (or vice versa these days) etc.
        In fact their bravado and increased closeness to each other is a classic ‘coping’ mechanism of bonding around the missing person as a family type group. Makoto is the glue that bonds them after all.
        That’s why they are throwing themselves into their respective tasks and roles in order to cope with their loss and not just pine away in anguish which Makoto certainly wouldn’t want to come back to anyways.
        Furiae’s inner monologue in the earlier chapter shows as much. Y’know? : )

      2. I think it will be fine, Makoto is changing history, he will most likely be remembered as the equivalent to Anna, since she isn’t around at the moment. Or just a member of the legendary party. Anyway, I think he won’t be forgotten, that would just sucks ass

        1. I think he will be forgotten. If my guess is right, he combines with the lightning hero Abel in the myth because the only person we have seen in the past with a light skill is makoto who got it before he time traveled. It also doesn’t make sense for the light hero to be helpful at all since we know that those clouds block all his usefulness and we were told they block out the whole world in the dark era. My guess is that Makoto kills all the demon lords, earning him 1000 years of lifespan and the coffin we saw in the great sage’s house is makoto under a sleep spell.

    1. Johnny Walker Green! I always hear that in my head when I read that name. From The Man From Earth, nice movie

  32. Nice, this arc is more interesting than other, and I can’t wait to Momo’s(Great sage-sama) reaction when Makoto get back to original time.

  33. I am really dumbfounded with makoto’s current thought right now.
    The goddesses didn’t restricted him in talking about the future. In fact they even told him he can do whatever he wants.
    He should be introducing himself as someone from the future to prevent the enemy from changing history. He could also show Cain Noah’s dagger and make him tell Noah that the devil are going to betray her and make her switch side before it’s too late.
