WM – Chapter 256: Takatsuki Makoto gets consulted by Anna

Sponsored Chapter!


“Makoto-san…please hear me out.” (Anna)

Anna had closed onto me to a distance that her breath could reach me.

I could feel something abnormal from that face at her wit’s end.

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

My most important mission is Hero Abel.

I wasn’t worried because we were training safely in the Sun Temple, but maybe there was an actual problem occurring? 

I held my necklace lightly.

(…Ira-sama, can you hear me?) (Makoto)

(I can. It looks like a problem has happened with Hero Abel.) (Ira)

(I will listen to the problem. Please let me consult with you.) (Makoto)

(Leave it to me.) (Ira)

As expected of a Goddess.

So reliable.

“You won’t be coming back for a while after going to the Deep Sea Temple, right?” (Anna)

Anna-san speaks.

“I will be returning every now and then. It seems like Momo can function better by drinking my blood after all.” (Makoto)

“…For the sake of Momo-chan?” (Anna)

“?” 

What does she mean by that?

“Are you…not worried about me?” (Anna)

“Uhm…” (Makoto)

“You will be leaving this place while you are in the Deep Sea Temple. Are you not going to worry about me…?” (Anna)

“O-Of course, Abel-san as well.” (Makoto)

“Anna.” 

“I will also worry about Anna-san too.” (Makoto)

“Then, please bring me with you!” (Anna)

“T-That’s…I can’t.” (Makoto)

I am going with Demon Lord Cain after all.

I definitely can’t bring her with me.

“Why…? You don’t care about me?” (Anna)

“…”

Help! SOS! SOS!

Ira-sama!

(Hey, Takatsuki Makoto…) (Ira)

Yes, Ira-sama.

What should I do?! 

(Hug her and might as well add a kiss too.) (Ira)

…Huh?

(It seems like Anna-chan’s mental state is a bit unstable, so comfort her.) (Ira)

Hero Abel is a man, you know?

(She is a woman right now. Don’t worry about the small details.) (Ira)

I-Is it really a small detail…?

Also, Anna-san looks just like Princess Noel, so I feel a bit against the idea because of this too…

But if Hero Abel really is in an unstable mental state, I do have to do something.

“Anna-san.” (Makoto)

“Y-Yes…?” (Anna)

I held her hand with both hands.

“Let’s rest well for today and train together tomorrow. If we train your Light Hero Skill, something like Demon Lords will be easy-peasy.” (Makoto)

“R-Really…?” (Anna)

Sakurai-kun defeated the Beast King in one hit after all.

(Takatsuki Makoto…the Light Hero Skill of 1,000 years in the future has been improved by Althena-sama. Don’t think of it as the same thing.) (Ira)

Eh?

The one of Sakurai-kun is stronger?

(Of course the latest version is better.) (Ira)

N-No way…

The Light Hero Skill of Hero Abel is the old version…

“Is something wrong, Makoto-san?” (Anna)

Holy Maiden Anna peeked at my face cause I had frozen there.

“It is nothing. Now, let’s rest for today.” (Makoto)

“I woke up just now though.” (Anna)

“It is fine, it is fine.” (Makoto)

“Eh, wa, Makoto-san? Uhm…there’s no need to push me so much…” (Anna)

I push Anna-san to her bed, and I lay down on the bed beside it. 

I look at the ceiling while thinking about the training of tomorrow.

I couldn’t think of any good ideas.

◇◇

The next day, it was decided that I will be training with Hero Abel.

I say that, but I don’t know about Hero Skills, so I am going blind here.

My point of reference is Sakurai Ryosuke-kun who has the Light Hero Skill too in the future.

My childhood friend.

But I have only fought together with him 2 times.

One time it was in Laberintos with the Taboo Dragons.

The second one was with Beast King Zagan.

I bring back the memories of those times.

(Even so, both times were one hit kills though…) (Makoto)

They are not memories that serve as much of a frame of reference. 

What I can tell is that sunlight is important.

It should be a Skill that doesn’t show much power when inside a cave or below the Pitch Black Clouds.

“Abel-sa—” (Makoto)

“Anna.” 

“Anna-san.” (Makoto)

“Yes!” (Anna)

I look at the Holy Maiden Anna who is taking a stance with her sword.

“Can you change the light of the sun into mana?” (Makoto)

“Uhm…I will try.” (Anna)

Anna-san holds her sword tightly with a complicated expression and goes ‘muuh~’.

*Zuzuzu* …A massive amount of mana began to gather, and the blade of the sword began to release light.

“What is going on?” (Mel)

“Enemy attack?!” (Momo)

The White Dragon-san and the Great Sage-sama came here.

“How is it, Makoto-san?!” (Anna)

“Hmmm…” (Makoto)

I checked the state of Anna-san, who is showing me the sword that is releasing radiant light, with a hand on my chin and thought.

“That’s outstanding mana. An Ancient Dragon would fall in one hit if it were cut by this magic sword.” (Mel)

“Anna-san’s sword is scary…” (Momo)

Judging from the faces of Mel-san and Momo, the magic sword in the hands of Anna-san is quite the thing.

But…

“It isn’t rainbow colored…” (Makoto)

At the time when Hero Abel cut Demon Lord Cain, it was shining rainbow.

If I remember correctly, it was the same when Sakurai-kun defeated Demon Lord Zagan.

“Spirit User-kun, magic that shines in rainbow color…the All Element Magic is the realm of Gods, you know?” (Mel)

“Yeah, I know… The Light Hero Skill alone can manage to do that.” (Makoto)

“Uhm…I don’t know about that. Why do you know more than me about it, Makoto-san?” (Anna)

‘Because Althena-sama told me’, is what I answer half-heartedly, and fall in thought.

At that time, Sakurai-kun was…

“Anna-san, can you summon an angel?” (Makoto)

When Sakurai-kun defeated Demon Lord Zagan, he borrowed the strength of an angel.

Shouldn’t we begin from there?

“““Huh?”””

But the other 3 opened their eyes wide at my proposal.

I don’t think I said something weird here though.

It should be easier than borrowing the strength of a Goddess, right? 

More so when…

“I can call Angels by asking the Water Goddess, you know?” (Makoto)

At the time when I took out my sacred treasure and was about to activate the Sacrificial Technique…

“You idiot! Stop it, Spirit User-kun! Don’t use that blasphemous spell so lightly! What will you do if we are attacked?!” (Mel)

“Eeh…I will offer a sheep around, so it is safe.” (Makoto)

“How blasphemous!” (Mel)

She scolded me.

I wanted to show Abe—Anna-san the actual thing though.

“You can summon Angels, Makoto-san?!” (Anna)

“That’s not it, Hero-kun. What he was about to do was a Sacrificial Technique. A heretical technique that takes the life of another to fulfill their own desire. You normally need to have a sacred treasure and a God Rank magic circle or it would take your own life though…” (Mel)

“A Goddess (Noah-sama) made this dagger, and a Goddess (Eir-sama) enchanted it with the magic circle.” (Makoto)

“Why do you have such a treasure of mythological times on your possession, Spirit User-kun?!” (Mel)

The White Dragon-san was amazed by this.

Looks like using a Sacrificial Technique lightly is not normal.

Well, it is a technique that Eir-sama told me to use as a trump card.

I should stop using it nonchalantly. 

But what to do then…?

(Pray. Anna is an Oracle, so it definitely will reach Althena-oneesama.) (Ira)

The voice of Ira-sama reached my ears.

(It seems like there’s no response even when she prays though?) (Makoto)

(This is troubling… She probably has her hands full with other matters… She is in charge of the whole solar system after all…) (Ira)

(I-Isn’t her range of duty a bit too wide? By the way, what about you, Ira-sama?) (Makoto)

(I am in charge of…only this continent.) (Ira)

It is completely different!

I could tell here that even when they are Goddesses, there’s a difference in their powers.

…Noah-sama is supposedly on the same level as Althena-sama?

Isn’t she quite the dangerous Goddess then?

(That’s what I told you; I can’t deal with Noah. And so, look properly after Anna-chan who is the crux of this matter, okay?) (Ira)

(Got it, Ira-sama.) (Makoto)

I nodded at Ira-sama.

“Anna-san continue your training with the magic sword made with the sunlight, and continue praying to Althena-sama. Your voice should be reaching.” (Makoto)

“Makoto-san… Got it.” (Anna)

Anna-san obediently nods to what I say.

Now that I think about it, when I was training in magic with Lucy at Makkaren, it was something like this.

They have strong Skills, but they can’t master them.

Lucy would mess up her magic frequently, but it doesn’t happen with Anna-san which makes things easier.

(Let’s take it slow…) (Makoto)

There’s no point in hurrying.

A few days after that…

I would train with Anna-san and check the progress of Momo’s magic…

And so…it is now finally the day before the promised day with Demon Lord Cain.

I asked the White Dragon-san to give me a ride for the going and the return.

“Then, I will be going.” (Makoto)

“Master~, come back quickly, okay?” (Momo)

“Take care, Makoto-san.” (Anna)

I was seen off by the Great Sage-sama and Anna-san…and head to clear the Deep Sea Temple.

      This guy is really weak from a direct attack huh. BTW Anna-chan pleading towards him is really cute/

      (I am in charge of…only this continent.) (Ira)
      It is completely different!

      Eh, she only manages one continent? Here I thought how the hell a ponkotsu goddess like her managing the whole worlds fate, isn’t she completely useless then? that means there was another god who has the same occupation as her right?

      “Why…? You don’t care about me?” (Anna)
      Help! SOS! SOS!
      Ira-sama!
      (Hug her and might as well add a kiss too.) (Ira)

      Hero Abel is a man, you know?
      (She is a woman right now. Don’t worry about the small details.) (Ira)

      She may be his stopper at this time but looks like all the goddess really become a driving force for him while in this kind of situation. I’m enjoying it though! GO GO MAKOTO! TAKE THE FORBIDDEN ROUTE!

      1. Anna’s heroine power and waifu power increased !
        Ira being useless is nothing new. She is an airhead and is very clumsy.

        Ira giving advice to Makoto ? Why do I imagine that scene in the modern world ?

        Imaginary scenario:
        “Makoto in his apartment is playing a galge in front of a computer and Ira is sitting right beside him and is giving him advice how to clear the game. Makoto is playing galges because Ira said that it will help him to understand a woman’s heart.

      Be more agressive, Makoto ! Anna really needs your support !

      (Takatsuki Makoto…the Light Hero Skill of 1,000 years in the future has been improved by Althena-sama. Don’t think of it as the same thing.) (Ira)
      So Abel and his party managed to defeat Iblis with an inferior version of Light Hero ? I wonder how they did it.

      ““Eh, wa, Makoto-san? Uhm…there’s no need to push me so much…” (Anna)
      I push Anna-san to her bed, and I lay down on the bed beside it. ”
      The first sentence can cause so much misunderstandings… What a shame, they didn’t do anything.

      ““Eeh…I will offer a sheep around, so it is safe.” (Makoto)”
      Offering a sheep… How familiar.

      “(This is troubling… She probably has her hands full with other matters… She is in charge of the whole solar system after all…) (Ira)”
      I wonder what kind of work Althena is doing in the whole solar system.

      Anna is really a maiden in love now. An angel is in love with you, Makoto. I don’t know if this picture is fine, but I will post it anyways.

      1. We really need illustrations for Anna. Maybe the time travel arc will be at volume 8-9 on the LN? Also, the author didn’t mention about anna’s hair is long or short hair so I still can’t really visualize her appearance. She should have the same appearance as noel right?

      2. Eh I did try to read one of the raw chapters once with MTL and from how I understood it, they described Anna as looking exactly like Noel except with bigger boobs.

      3. That last part was the most vital information. Now we know that Makoto will at least have something to grab on to when the time comes for the deed to happen ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (Hopefully it actually happens, man. I don’t like feeling unsatisfied with Makoto’s herbivore qualities.)

    (Of course the latest version is better.) (Ira)

    Well even skill has updates and improved versions huh? This makes the looks world just like a patch of a game for every season 🤣 Maybe even that’s why the games skill are present.

      1. Probably cause it like there’s no record of a light hero skill in the past seeing how Annabel and Mel-san doesn’t know anything about the skill (even Annabel can’t determine what skill it is at first until Makoto pointed it out)

      2. Well it does take 1000 years to create the Light Hero skill so of course it makes sense that the second version would get improved given all the time needed to make it.

    1. Well, Makoto is unreliable most of the time, but he is reliable when it really matters. On the other hand, Ira is reliable most of the time, but she fails at the most crucial moment. They suit each other because they can cover each other weaknesses.

      Ira as a waifu ? They get along so well, so it is strange that they aren’t a couple by now.

  2. Help!!! SOS! SOS!

    This makes me laugh so much. It’s like that time with Sophia falling for Makoto all over again.

    Ara ara~ did Makoto and Anna sleep next to each while holding hands? Ship Noel’s ancestor with Makoto? Is Makoto her great great great grandad?

    At this point Makoto is really a heretical existence. Shouldn’t be be a demon lord or on that side instead? That won’t happen though…. the waifus are on the human side.

    Ira – One Continent
    Althena – The Solar System

  6. Good Job Ira~! Advising Makoto to hug and kiss Anna.

    It is funny though remembering how arrogant Ira was when first introduced yet now we know she is only in charge of one continent versus the entire solar system that Althena is in charge of.

    Makoto says that he won’t use the Sacrificial Technique so lightly and nonchalantly now but let’s be real, he’s gonna keep using it like he’s chugging MP potions in order to top up his lifespan.

    1. Well, Ira did say that she was the weakest (or something… maybe… idk) during that timeline so it’s understandable that she can only manage one continent (But seriously, one continent? Pfffft).

  7. Hmm I wonder if cain arrived early so Mel will see him when they arrive, also rather interesting to learn that Althena seems to have multiple worlds to watch over but she still gave Annabel the light hero skill so she should be paying some attention to their world right now, I wonder what shes distracted with to miss her prayers. Now for my bets on the deep sea temple, I’m pretty certain they will fail to free Noah but I’m hoping they are strong enough to get close and mabye even meet her as I’m quite curious how Noah will react to her mark on Makoto

        I don’t remember reading somewhere that it was reapplied tho, only that THAT order was through his soul. Unless I’m blind, which I’m not, or I missed something, which is most likely.

      2. If i remember correctly, yes, there was no mention of the mark being restored. And that order to his soul was given to Makoto by Noah because Makoto was an apostle of Noah. I vividly remember the mention of something related to him being her apostle~~

  9. …. If I remember it right Annabel-san was left behind in the past in the end, much to her (and Noel’s) frustration, at least by Noel-san. What makes me concerned is if after returning Noel-san will ditch Sakurai-kun for Makoto, be it for soul-calling(reincarnation) or duty(like with Gera). No, Sakurai-kun does try to evade her lately, obviously, but still it feels bad.
    ——
    Why Makoto uses Goddesses as love advisors mainly? Well, they probably will end with him in even closer relationships then just friends, but…
    ——–
    Makoto casually sacrifices a sheep? Might as well consider his ‘son’, not like he will be using it anyways.

    I guess it makes sense that Sakurai has the Light Hero Skill 2.0, even without accounting for the presence of sunlight. Also kinda makes sense that the “Sun goddess” manages the entire “solar” system, doesn’t it? No wonder things are so rough at this point if that’s the case.

  12. Like I said, Makoto is really firmly set on the idea of Abel being Savior Abel, the MALE hero who saved the world and can’t seem to adjust to the idea of him being Anna. While Anna seems to feel that Abel is actually the disguise she’s been forced to wear all her life and that being Anna is her true self. Who knows what it’s gonna take for Makoto to accept that, let alone deal with her feelings for him. Makes me sympathise with her.

    Thanks for the translation!
