TLN: Two chapters today! Make sure you didn’t miss the previous one!

Sponsored Chapter!


“Hurry and move deep into Laberintos.” 

“The ones who are okay should lend a hand to the injured!” 

“Wait! Has a safe location been secured in the mid floor?!” 

“We have finished setting a barrier at the cave close to the deep lake. It should serve well enough as a temporary evacuation spot.” 

“Isn’t that the den of Lamias and Arachnes?” 

“Believe in the barrier! There’s no problem…probably.” 

“Oi.” 

The people of Laberintos are currently moving. 

The reason being because Demon Lord Cain has discovered the existence of the dungeon city. 

Looks like they will be moving their dwellings from the upper floor before more from the demon lord army come. 

What a waste…

“Momo, let’s go too.” (Makoto)

“O-Okay.” (Momo)

Momo and I have little to no luggage. We were practically carrying nothing.

That’s why I tried to help out with carrying the luggage of others, but they rejected me saying ‘You must be tired from helping out Johnny-sama in fighting back the Demon Lord! We can’t let you do such menial work!’.

Also, they gave the reason of Momo being a child, so she was exempted from carrying luggage.

Even when Momo and I went deeper into Laberintos, there were barely any monsters.

Looks like the mages of Laberintos placed a barrier in the path. 

It may be a pain for the monsters, but it helps us out.

We arrived safely at the underground lake on the mid floor.

The giant waterfall was making roaring sounds, and endlessly falling onto the underground lake.

There’s a small opening at the ceiling, with light entering from there, and it was creating a wondrous sight.

How nostalgic…

I reunited with Sa-san around here.

But well, I met her 1,000 years from now though.

“Makoto-sama, what’s the matter?” (Momo)

Momo spoke to me when I was getting sentimental.

“It is nothing. Let’s meet up with Abel-san and the others.” (Makoto)

The Heroes were taking the initiative to help in the moving of the city.

We are acting separately because of that.

They should be wounded though… They are tough.

I feel bad for being the only ones who are taking it easy.

Volkh-san and Hero Abel were carrying heavy-looking stuff.

Looks like it will be taking time…

At that moment…

“Uhm…Makoto-sama?” 

“Do you have some time?” 

Girls I don’t know spoke to me.

One is a black haired elf.

The other is a blonde cat eared beastkin.

They are both beautiful girls.

“What is it?” (Makoto)

When I responded to them, the two girls approached me and pulled my hand.

“The patriarch wants to talk to you.” 

“We will guide you, Makoto-sama.” 

“The Patriarch-san? Got it.” (Makoto)

By Patriarch, they must be referring to Johnny-san.

He is an important person.

I also wanted to take my time and have a talk with him.

“Uhm…” (Momo)

Momo grabbed my clothes from the back.

“Momo, let’s go together. That’s okay, right?” (Makoto)

““…Yes.””

The two girls hesitated for a bit as they looked at each other.

But they didn’t reject it.

What is it?

We were guided deep into the big cave. 

Maybe it was made with magic, a shared space for people to live in was already being made.

I observed the face of the black haired elf with RPG Player while we were walking.

(…She looks similar…) (Makoto)

The black haired elf girl looks a bit similar to Lucy.

I say that, but Lucy is the only elf I get along well with.

There are a lot of beauties in the elves, so I might just be feeling like they look similar.

While I was thinking that, I arrived at a big stone-made room in the deepest part.

“Patriarch.” 

“We have brought Makoto-sama.” 

“Come in.” 

A voice that seemed to be of Johnny-san rang from the door at the other side.

“Eh?” 

When I entered the room, I saw Johnny-san sitting on a chair.

His top exposed.

That’s fine and all.

The problem is the back.

The one sleeping on the big bed was…a naked woman.

When I looked at my side, Momo also had her mouth wide open.

This is bad. I shouldn’t have brought Momo with me…

“I am glad you are here. Please take a seat.” (Johnny)

“O-Okay…” (Makoto)

“Excuse the intrusion…” (Momo)

Momo and I sat in front of Johnny-san with a table in between.

Food and drinks were placed in front of us soon after.

The ones who brought all of that were the black haired elf and the blonde cat eared girl.

“Please eat. It may not be much, but this is our thanks for saving us.” (Johnny)

“No, if Johnny-san wasn’t there, I would have been dead…” (Makoto)

“You are not a resident of the city, and yet, you put your life on the line. I want to give you my thanks as the Patriarch.” (Johnny)

“I see…” (Makoto)

So in the eyes of Johnny-san, I am a benefactor that fought for the sake of the city.

I had to protect the Light Hero because of my mission, but this result is good too.

“Demon Lord Cain…is the Hero Killer Demon Lord. I understood this after facing him, but I didn’t expect him to be that unreasonable of an existence…” (Johnny)

The face of Johnny-san darkened slightly.

“He really was unfairly strong.” (Makoto)

It is because of the sacred treasures that Noah-sama made though.

Noah-sama, it is unfair that my predecessor got all that good stuff.

“But your actions were splendid, Makoto. I am impressed that you were able to deal with things in such a calm manner.” (Johnny)

“Thanks for the high praise.” (Makoto)

Johnny-san was praising me a whole lot, and that pained me.

I was told in advance about the things to watch out for in the equipment of the Demon Lord by Noah-sama, so it was basically like cheating.

I think I wouldn’t have been able to deal with it if I didn’t have information beforehand.

Demon Lord Cain must be that.

A beginner killer boss.

It was at that moment…

“Oh my, Johnny-sama, will this person be joining our family too?” 

“You are strong despite the cute face, Hero-sama.” 

The beauties that were naked on the bed spoke to me.

So there were two…

Also…please hide your body a bit.

When I glanced at Momo, she was covering her face with her cheeks flushing red.

She must be embarrassed. 

Sorry about that, Momo.

“You are in front of guests. Wear clothes.” (Johnny)

““Okay~.””

Johnny-san reprimanded them.

I drank the wine in order to drive away the impure thoughts.

This is strong…

I choked a bit there.

“Here, Makoto-sama.” 

The black haired elf immediately poured more wine in my glass.

Her body was glued to mine as she was pouring it.

When I glanced over there, she smiled at me.

Oi oi, you are going to make me misunderstand if you do that, you know…?

“Makoto, that girl is my daughter, but it seems like she fell for you when she saw you fight. If you have taken a liking to her, can you do her?” (Johnny)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

“Eeeeeeeeh?!” (Momo)

Momo and I raised dumbfounded voices.

“Makoto-sama…” 

The elf girl directed an enraptured gaze at me.

This girl is the daughter of Johnny-san…?

Wait, that means…she is a relative of Lucy?! 

Of course she would look similar! 

“That’s not fair, Papa! I also want Makoto-sama!” 

The blonde cat-eared girl on the opposite side of the black hair elf-san hugged me.

“Aah, looks like this girl also likes you, Makoto. There’s no need to choose. You can marry them both.” (Johnny)

So this one is also his daughter?! 

He really does have a lot of children just like Lucy said! 

““Makoto-sama…””

The two cute girls approach me.

“One is a skilled warrior and the other a skilled mage. I think they will be useful to you. Also, they don’t look bad, right?” (Johnny)

Johnny-san was pushing his daughters at me.

“No, the feelings of the people themselves is important…” (Makoto)

“I love Makoto-sama.” 

“I also want to be embraced by Makoto-sama…” 

“You heard them.” (Johnny)

No no no! 

We have barely spoken to each other! 

“I have told my children all the time that there’s no knowing when you will die in these times. If you have someone you are interested in, don’t hesitate in confessing your feelings.” (Johnny)

“I-I see… Makes sense.” (Makoto)

That way of thinking is similar to the mother of Lucy, Rosalie-san.

Was it passed down to each generation since Johnny-san?

Even so…

“M-Makoto-sama…?” (Momo)

Momo had teary eyes as she pulled my sleeve.

You don’t have to make that face. I won’t be making wives in the past.

Moreover, relatives of Lucy that were in the granny generation of Lucy.

It would be awkward in a lot of meanings.

“Johnny-san, I am grateful, but I will refrain from that.” (Makoto)

“Hmm, I see…” (Johnny)

“Eeeh~, no way.” 

“Makoto! I haven’t given up yet!” 

Johnny-san and his daughters made regretful faces.

“But I want to thank you for helping us. Is there anything else you want?” (Johnny)

Johnny-san asked.

This person is really honorable.

I thought for a bit and spoke it out.

“Can you lend me your help when I am in trouble?” (Makoto)

“Me…?” (Johnny)

Johnny-san made a dubious expression.

“Yes, I would like you to lend me your strength.” (Makoto)

“Well, I don’t mind…” (Johnny)

“Then, I will consult with you when I am in trouble, okay?” (Makoto)

“Yeah, got it.” (Johnny)

Johnny-san nodded.

Alright! 

I have gotten the agreement of Johnny-san! 

He will now participate in the Great Demon Lord battle!

“…I feel like I made a fearsome promise just now.” (Johnny)

“You are imagining it.” (Makoto)

Geez, I won’t let you revoke it, okay?

The two girls at both of my sides were still clinging to me.

Lets not stay for long.

I bid farewell and left the room.

◇Momo POV◇

“Makoto-sama!” 

“Makoto-sama~, let’s talk.” 

The daughters of the Patriarch-san and the women of the dungeon city were coming to where Makoto-san is.

Everyone is trying to gain favor with Makoto-sama.

The brave one that fought off Demon Lord Cain.

Obviously this would happen.

All the women that are approaching Makoto-sama are beautiful and have great bodies.

Uuh…

At this rate, Makoto-sama will end up being together with someone in that group…

When that happens, I will just be a hindrance.

Makoto-sama won’t be treating me badly, but even I can tell that we won’t be able to stay the same as always when that happens.

My swirling thoughts were a mess.

It was at the time when I was worrying about this.

“Momo, what’s the matter?” (Makoto)

Makoto-sama peeked at my face as if worrying about me.

Kind face and gentle voice.

And yet, cold eyes as if observing me.

A freezing gaze that doesn’t waver no matter the time and no matter the enemy. 

When I get exposed to that cold gaze…it makes me shudder.

(Makoto-sama…I love you…) (Momo)

I want to be by his side forever.

I want to live together with him forever.

I don’t want to be away from him.

But what should I do?

How can I be together with him?

“Uhm…Makoto-sama?” (Momo)

“What is it?” (Makoto)

“Uhm…” (Momo)

What’s the right thing to say?

‘Make me your girlfriend’?

No.

That’s no good.

If I said that, he would just say ‘Then, when you grow up’ and that would be the end of it.

Makoto-sama only thinks of me as a nuisance of a child.

“Makoto-sama! Please…please make me your disciple!” (Momo)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

Makoto-sama opened his mouth wide and let out his voice in surprise. It is rare to see him doing that.

◇Takatsuki Makoto POV◇

The Great Sage-sama has become my disciple.

Are you kidding me…?

“Master! I will be in your care!” (Momo)

“Yeah…” (Makoto)

Even if you say that with the face of the Great Sage-sama, it will only confuse me.

But the fighting power of the current Great Sage-sama isn’t high.

It shouldn’t be bad to train in magic.

“Then, let’s raise our magic proficiency together.” (Makoto)

“Understood! I will train in water magic just like Master, okay?” (Momo)

“Are you stupid?! The weakest of the 7 elements should be the last one! Last one!” (Makoto)

“Eeeeeeh?!” (Momo)

Why would someone who has the Sage Skill that allows them to use all 7 elements be training in water magic?

Water magic is on the hobby level.

“Uuuh… I want to be the same as Master though…” (Momo)

“I train water magic, sun magic, and destiny magic in that order. You should train fire magic and earth magic that you could use from the very beginning first.” (Makoto)

“Okay~.” (Momo)

Looks like she reluctantly accepted.

Fire magic is exemplary in destructive power.

Earth magic is exemplary in defensive power.

Training these two shouldn’t be bad.

What’s next is…if I remember correctly, the Great Sage-sama was good at Teleport.

But I can’t use it, so I can’t teach her.

Is there a master in destiny magic around?

Why am I thinking about the teaching curriculum of the Great Sage-sama?

I continued training with Momo while thinking it has turned into a strange situation.

Speaking of strange things, there’s one more thing.

I have been popular with the women of the dungeon city as of late.

They are trying to seduce me in a really blatant manner.

The one who comes often is the black haired beautiful elf (resembling Lucy).

But…

That’s a relative of Lucy, you know?

A sister of the grandfather of Lucy from the elf village.

She is 14-15 years old, so she is younger than me.

She is the daughter of Johnny-san so I can’t treat her too badly, so I just reject her vaguely.

I am currently training my water magic while catching fishes in the underground lake.

Momo is training her magic at my side.

She made 4 small fireballs with a complicated expression.

She is growing fast.

As expected of someone with the Sage Skill.

Hero Abel is serving as watch at a slightly separated location.

A barrier has been deployed, and there’s other Heroes on lookout as well, so the monsters are wary and don’t come.

In other words, he looks like he is got nothing to do.

Alright, it would be a waste to not use our time efficiently.

“Momo, come here.” (Makoto)

“O-Okay.” (Momo)

“While keeping your fireballs, okay?” (Makoto)

“Uguh…” (Momo)

She tried to stop her magic, so I warned her.

No matter the time, I won’t allow her to stop using magic.

By the way, I have made 99 water butterflies.

Momo is going to become the number one mage of the continent, so I will have her be able to do the same soon.

“Abel-san.” (Makoto)

“What’s the matter, Makoto-san?” (Abel)

When I called Hero Abel, he turned around with a smile.

Yup, so friendly! 

…What am I even saying? 

“There’s a place I want to go to. Can you come with me?” (Makoto)

“Yeah, I don’t mind, but where?” (Abel)

“Eh, Master? Where are you going?” (Momo)

I answered.

“Let’s go to the deepest floor of Laberintos.” (Makoto)

““Huh?””

The dumbfounded voices of Hero Abel and Momo overlapped. 

—Author Notes:

There were questions of whether the Olga of 1,000 years in the past was a man or a woman. She was a woman. She is already dead, so it isn’t an important point, but just to point it out. 

> There was a massive amount of water around. Would a cloud of dust be made from a gale of the wind spirits? Wouldn’t it be mud? 

→ ……Let’s just say the ground at the feet of Cain was dry (bad excuse).

    Does this mean Momo is a bit M in the past? And she’s really loves Makoto that’s why she really fast get attached to Makoto in the future .

    1. Well, she’s still very young so the feeling of wanting an attention, which leads to some M personality exist for a bit. Even more, Makoto is literally the reason why she still exist until now, making Momo has a lot of uneasiness thinking on why Makoto did that while not asking for anything in return. No wonder why she gets attached a lot to Makoto

    2. It’s more of blind devotion and dependancy than being an M, because she’s really young to be fair… I’m more surprised no one thinks yet that it’s opening to a certain tendency that most might not like as they’re dangerous and volatile.

      3. Pretty sure she’s the older sister. I’m not positive, but i think I remember that Lucy’s grandfather was born after the Great Demon Lord was slain, when Johnny was getting on in years. He was a womanising bastard to the end after all.

        I suggested that Ira should be the one who will teach Momo destiny magic, but now that I think about it, I am worried that Ira will fail to teach Momo properly.

And then when lucy and sa-san in the present time tried to clear the dungeon they found that marks and surprised to know that makoto already cleared this in the past. That would be Epic LOL

    1. Not possible. We know Lucy’s maternal grandpa, and it’s not Makoto. Her paternal grandpa? That’s from another isekai, also most likely a demon.

      Now if we’re talking her grand-uncle or something, that’s still possible. Can’t imagine his harem would be all too thrilled to find out though.

      1. You’re confusing the demon from another world. That’s Lucy’s father who honestly given what we know of him being a noble of hell and Lucy’s own name, he might be Lucifer. We have no idea who her paternal grandpa is.

      2. I’m not confusing anything. I only said a demon, which is true. From another world, but still demon. And note the “most likely” bit, that’s because we don’t really know anything about the details of Lucy’s family back in hell, except that the guy is a demon, which gives basis to assuming that his dad is a demon too. And note, again “most likely”, because if Lucy’s dad is another Lucy, then her paternal granddad is big G.

  6. This chapter was sickeningly sweet. When is this dunce going to get laid? What happens in the past will change the future. If by some chance he got several women in the past knocked up, the future would have been completely different. That would be the Butterfly effect, for real. I really hate herbivores, I mean when a meal is prepared and laid out for you, you eat it. In his case, it would be best if they just pushed him down. Thanks for this chapter.

    1. My personal theory is the coffin contains Abel. He told people when he disappeared that someone was waiting for him. I think the someone is makoto in the future and Abel plans to help in the demon lord battle then as well. Then again I half expect abel to also be the holy maiden. Well that or possibly one or more of makotos wives found a way to the past.

  7. I honestly think is a bad idea that he don’t focus more in the new sun and destiny magic, he need to reach a usable level with both, at least he need to reach the point in which he can use the spirits of both elements, and considering his high proficiency with water, I belive that he could train two elements at the same time, or even more.

    Liked by 3 people

    1. Also, this is unrelated, but I continue of thinking in what Makoto would obtain for his blood pact with Momo, he alredy have the destiny magic so the things that come to my mind are maybe the Sage Skill, Appraisal, and the last that is the reason as to why I comment this here, maybe he could obtain the longevity (immortality) from the vampires, thats also a way in which he can reach 1,000 in the future, I’m not pretty sure about the probabilities of this theory, but still mention that is a option.

      Liked by 1 person

    2. He mentions he’s been training both. He’s probably splitting his focus three-ways between the two and Water Magic. It’s just not mentioned much because…, well let’s be honest, training maniac is already an established trait of his at this point, no need to belabor the point.

      And really, I suspect the Spirits of Time and Sun/Light/Whatever are probably not the sort of spirit you use casually. Noah’s only shown use of Spirit of Time is to rewind time, which is a big deal. And Spirits of Light…, I imagine those can probably make sunlight, imagine how crazy OP it’d be with a Light Hero around. It basically allows Abel to use Spirit Magic by proxy (Spirit makes sunlight focused on Abel, turned into Aura by Abel to kill stuff). If it were so easy to use those spirits, there’d be no real challenge.

      Liked by 2 people

      1. They should be able to do any magic of their element, like the normal spirits, but the reason as to why the don’t are know is probably something like they are much difficult to use that the spirits of the four element and their power is also probably greater (I think that in part because their elements have control of various more things, like the Gold Element that control time, destiny and metal).

        Liked by 2 people

      2. They should yes, but they’d also enable Makoto access to stuff that are quite game breaking as I mentioned. Basically, I’m talking in a rather meta sense here : you don’t want to give him too easy access to those spirits because they can break the setting as easily as Superman can break a world of cardboard.

        Liked by 1 person

      3. Well, that’s certainly a point, though he should eventually obtaint the control over them, maybe that will be better later in this arc, when Makoto is fighting the lastes Demon Lords.

    3. Remember how long it took for makoto to get water magic to the point where he could see spirits? With the sun blocked off right now it’d be pretty difficult to practice sun magic, right? As for destiny magic, it’s a bit more finicky than the others so it would make sense if it took longer to train than water magic did, even with makoto’s monster-level mana control.

      1. Yeah, but he already have the experience from the high proficiency in water, so although they are different elements his advance in reach that level should be more fast than with water, but well, is still really recently that he obtained the elements, added to the fact that is probably more difficult train both element for been more complex and theyr probably need more proficiency than water in his moment to reach the level in which is possible the use of spirits, then is understable, I maybe overreacted in the moment when I read that the other two elements don’t are his main focus but after calm down and so is more understable.

  9. Double chapter day is a good day!

    The Middle Layer was Aya’s home wasn’t it? Either this is something that happened in normal history, or if it’s not, hopefully not going to muck up Aya’s reincarnation.

    So many uses of RPG Player. Including stealthily observing people.

    Makoto saying that he’s unfairly strong because of the equipments…, that’s no different than how Abel and Sakurai are unfairly strong because of their skills honestly. At least equipments can be deprived of, Skills are permanent. And it’s not like Makoto would be able to use either anyways.

    And Reigokai : singular or multiple people on the bed? The first time it’s mentioned in singular, after it’s multiple.

    There’s no misunderstanding here, Makoto. Times like this, strength is very appreciated. And unlike in the future, they’re more likely to look in terms of results rather than written stuff.

    And Johnny seems less like an inveterate playboy and more like a believer of “eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die”. Not an unreasonable way of thinking given the times. Problem is, that’s his GF’s grand-aunt or something. And two at that. And likely more still. At least in one way or another, Johnny’s help for the party is secured.

    Momo’s thought process is likely not unlike Nina’s way earlier. Their positions are pretty similar after all. The thing about Makoto’s eyes though. Is that because of RPG Player, or Calm Mind? This is probably the first time we get a comment focusing on his eyes after all.

    Imagine if people back in the present finds out that Makoto is the Great Sage’s mentor. That alone is going to dissuade people more than being her Guardian Knight ever will.

    Dat author’s excuse at the end though 😂

    1. What if people learn that Makoto is really the lover of the Great Sage-sama ? I would like to read their reactions.
      If I had to use an expression to describe the behavior of Johnny, it would be “Carpe diem”.

      1. Carpe diem is another apt way to put it. The same thing really. Do what you want to do today because there may not be a tomorrow.

        Also, what people need to learn is that it’s not that Makoto is the Great Sage’s lover. It’s that the Great Sage is Makoto’s lover. Their reaction would be hilarious.

  10. ‘Make me your girlfriend’?

    No.

    That’s no good.

    If I said that, he would just say ‘Then, when you grow up’ and that would be the end of it.

    – Ouch! This line is actually kind of vicious if you consider that she’s a loli a thousand years later. Good avoidance technique Sage-sama!

  11. . . . wait, how old is Lucy’s mom again? Wasn’t she immortal? How likely is she to be this same black-haired elf that looks like Lucy?

    Like

      1. Sorry, immortal was an oversimplification. “Mama is using a sacred treasure that rejuvenates her which she found in her adventures, so her looks don’t reflect her age. She is past 200 years old.” is what was said. That seems like a chekhov’s gun when paired with time travel and an elf that looks and acts like Rosalie. Of course a lot of them act like Rosalie. Lewd elves galore. I’m not sure about Wolt though. Is it possible he’s Johnny? Or not her actual father? Or I’m wrong. That one happens a lot.

  14. About the Abel = Anna theory.

    If I remember correctly, the Noel is supposed to have the blood of the holy maiden Anna but not Abel because Abel disappeared somewhere. I think it’s strange to lie about one and not the other. So Noel having the bloodline of Anna is probably true.

    However, Abel is clearly being waifu-ed here. So if Abel/Anna were to become royal bloodline that means she’d have to get married & sleep with some other guy. That’s kinda NTR, right?

    On the other hand, Abel and Anna not getting together because (a) Abel is secretly a girl and (b) Abel is in love with Makoto makes a lot of sense.

    I think the theory that Abel might be the one in the ice coffin that some else brought up is a good one. If it was Makoto, it is strange that the great sage didn’t wake him up immediately. Abel and Momo seem to be pretty close at this point so it wouldn’t be surprising if she agreed to put her in a coffin for 1000 years to meet Makoto in the future. It is also consistent with the story of Abel disappearing after saying that there was someone he had to meet.

    Since Abel is a real person and since he strong enough to cut Cain’s helmet, he/she is probably the real light hero. So it would be a bit strange for Anna to not exist. Perhaps Anna will appear in the future and falls in love in Abel, not realizing that Abel is a guy.

  15. > Makoto: “When I called Hero Abel, he turned around with a smile. Yup, so friendly! …What am I even saying? ”

    What is this? I had this feeling that Abel swayed on that PATH!!!!!!!!!!
    The dangerous Path. The one who pierce their Holy Light Sword unto the darkness region, that any man will unpleasantly avoid confronting to.
    This might answer why Abel has no descendant if i remember correctly….

    1. Oh, I can see it now.

      Makoto returns to the present and joins the GDK subjugation, but the GDK is too strong! Their past experience against the light hero has given them all the intel needed to render sakurai’s skill useless in the fight. And spirits are useless for some other plot device or some shit. What does makoto do in this desperate time? He remembers the words of one tall, purple, thicc alien boi in the MCU’s highest grossing film. And he uses transform to change into the GDK himself!

      “I used the Iblis to destroy the Iblis”

      Or the GDK turns out to be a loli and falls for makoto.

  16. Thanks for the translation!

    “Makoto, that girl is my daughter, but it seems like she fell for you when she saw you fight. If you have taken a liking to her, can you do her?”

    Wow. I know this is a hellish time where human-based people can die at any time and people are less concerned with niceties, but this is reeeeeeeeeeally direct Johnny-san!
    Though I was worried he was risking becoming Lucy’s grandparent, but it seems she’s actually her great-aunt. Still would be hard to explain when he sees her again…….

    And why is he confused about all the women being interested after seeing him fight Not only is it an era where strength is everything, but has he forgotten about his Charm magic? He was surely using it to help influence the Spirits during the battle. The people around were most likely collateral damage. Stop being such an airhead Makoto!

    And Disciple, get! I knew he’d end up becoming her teacher, since she’s completely untrained and he has his insane magic proficiency. I surprised he didn’t think of it himself. He’s going to end up being the master of the Great Sage and the rolemodel of the Savior. Even if it can’t be recorded in history. Or rather, I’m betting the goddesses will have to cover up his existence to hide the fact they used time travel from the Devils. The might even block their own memories.
    But we know Momo remembers and was just waiting for it to happen. And I’m betting Noa remembered too. She’s always acts like an airhead, but sometimes she’s surprisingly sly. I’m betting she’s been pulling a huge prank on him all this time and waiting to laugh at him when they meet again. Calling it.

    1. I’m actually kind of curious why Makoto and Great Sage-sama’s discussion on magic proficiency came up. Back when he first gave her blood in the future. Assuming she has the memories like the author says, it sounds like something she would have known.

      Like

      1. I’m pretty sure that she was playing dumb. Like I said, they likely have to hide that he went back in time from the Devils so she’s committed to making sure it all turns out like it was supposed to. Especially since he had to go back to meet and save her. There were lots of little things there after all. The way she insisted he sit next to her when she first met and always gave him favourable treatment, even if she always kept the face of a great sage interacting with youngsters. She also always called him Spirit User-kun and never once called him by name. Why? Because she couldn’t bring herself to call him by name without the ‘-sama’ which would surely raise questions in even the dense Makoto. Even when he was being sent back, she was unusually stiff and distant. Most likely because now that it was finally happening, she needed to make sure to send him on his way smoothly and wasn’t sure she wouldn’t give anything away or get emotional if she talked to him about it. She waited a thousand years to get him back after all. She had a lot of time to prepare and is EXTREMELY invested in it.

  17. Do we know what happened to Makoto’s other pacts? Like is the blood pact with Momo still in effect?
    The word/guardian pact should still be in effect because it once mentioned that he would lose his charm magic if he didn’t have it, right?
    Btw, was his proficiency in charm magic ever mentioned? Shouldn’t he be able to call upon charm spirits or something by now?

    Like

  18. Hhmnm yeah, i think the reason Abel and the party wins becuz of Makoto’s power leveling. He is a must to win this battle, maybe the Ira hid it, or she did not spot it since if two makoto exist (past and present) existence of makoto from the past will be erased if he goes back to the future, so memories of him is jumbled or something (if u watch the monogatari series, when araragi wants to save hachikuji i think its the same theory)

    also there is a clue for makoto to comeback, the time spirit Noah used, maybe if destiny magic proficiency reach like his water magic proficiency, he can ask the time spirit, or he just need to combine water, sun, and the destiny magic with same proficiency.

    This novel is getting interesting, thanks for the update

  19. Wasn’t Johnny Lucy’s Great Grandfather? Also, Lucy’s father is a high-ranking demon in an other dimensional hellworld, so he wouldn’t be at Lucy’s village. I think at this point Makoto hasn’t accepted anyone is that he wants make sure that Momo can feed comfortably (only blood from human virgins taste good to her.)

    Although, I think an alternate time line was established when Makoto went back. I seem to remember Momo mentioning that the vampire demon lord that turned was still in the north before the time jump. Since he gave that demon lord’s soul to the water goddess, he may have altered the future at this point.

  20. So they’re going to settle where Sa-san was born (will be born?). He should write a message in the lamia cave. He should know that Sa-san will probably return to visit this place in the future. Maybe right some instructions there after he defeats Iblis. Just put down something so she can verify it is Makoto that wrote it. IDK like the Konami Code or something.

    Yeah Makoto shouldn’t boink any of Johnny’s kids in the past. Who knows which one of them will end up being Lucy’s ancestors. Or what if that person manages to survive into the present? Talk about awkward regardless of the situation.

    It’s finally official. Momo fell. Given that she did remember Makoto 1000 years in the future, I wonder if she’s the one who spread the rumors about Makoto being the Great Sage’s lover? Anyways so looks like Makoto is gonna be the one who teaches Momo magic. She’s eager to learn but wait till she sees how insane his training regimen is.

    Now it’s time to travel to the bottom of Laberintos. I wonder what’s down there? And before anybody says, no the Titan Old Man is not down there. He was imprisoned in another manmade labyrinth somewhere in Rozes. Though I wonder if Makoto could go there too to release him?

    On the other hand, frigging excited to see the greatest mage teach someone overflowing with potential how to become the Great Sage. He’ll turn her into a monster yet.

    Johnny…is truly a harem man. I expected him to be…sleazier with that womanizing reputation, but he’s quite manly and his philosophy isn’t necessarily wrong for the era. That was kind of a dirty trick roping him into a terrifying battle though.

    The theory that Abel is going to turn into heroine, either by genderbender, secretly trap, or BL route is getting more real with each passing chapter.

    [Kind face and gentle voice.

    And yet, cold eyes as if observing me.

    A freezing gaze that doesn’t waver no matter the time and no matter the enemy.

    When I get exposed to that cold gaze…it makes me shudder.

    (Makoto-sama…I love you…) (Momo)

    I want to be by his side forever.

    I want to live together with him forever.

    I don’t want to be away from him.]

    That statement gave me diabetes, but it also makes me sad since she’ll be left alone for a millennium. Imagine her feelings when she has to hold back at their reunion. I hope there’ll be sweet moments in the future after this. Also dammit Makoto, every single one of your woman’s love were heavy. it’s a miracle they ain’t stabbing each other.

    Because Momo is Makoto’s disciple, that means every oracles and heroes who have been taught battle by Momo were learning Makoto’s tactics too. I guess some of her training who gives them trauma stems from Makoto’s approach to training too. Imagine the face of everyone when they knew this.

    1. It’s because Makoto is so dense that the girls have to push him down agressively to make him fall in love with them.
      Also, he is seducing women when the harem is not looking, so it makes the harem unified to push him down and prevent new girls from being added.

      Indeed ! Poor Momo, she had to wait for 1,000 years to meet him again. Also, I think she couldn’t hold back her feelings when they met at Laberintos. She did ask Makoto to sit at her side after all. I think it was really nostalgic for her to be given headpats by Makoto after 1,000 years, so this is why she asked Makoto to keep petting her head.
