WM – Chapter 267: Entrusted to the Light Hero

TLN: Heya guys! This is just a Spoiler Warning. 

The page shows the first few words of a chapter, so this is for prevention. Don’t read further if you don’t want to be spoiled!

———-

[Will you synchronize with the Destiny Goddess, Ira-sama?]

Yes

No

It is the choice that the RPG Player Skill gave me. 

(Is this…really okay to do…?) (Makoto)

In the past I couldn’t use fire magic, so when I synchronized with Lucy, I ended up getting my whole body burned, which is a bitter memory of mine. 

I barely managed to survive that, but it was quite the tightrope walk.

This time around I have Destiny Magic: Elementary, but we are talking about a Goddess. 

I can’t even begin to imagine what penalties there are. 

But…

I listen to the sound of the ice magic being destroyed, and the monsters surrounding us. 

There’s not much time left on the barrier. 

“Get ready!” (Johnny)

““““YES!””””

The warriors of Laberintos answer to the voice of Johnny-san. 

Volkh-san and Julietta-san are also ready to fight. 

Mel-san and the Ancient Dragons are also not showing signs of running away.

(Is there no other way…?) (Makoto)

The moment I was about to grab the hand of Ira-sama, words floated once again…

[Is your Clear Mind at 100%?]

Yes

No

My Clear Mind is currently…at 99%.

It is giving me quite a lot of instructions here. 

Noah-sama warned me that using Clear Mind at 100% too much was not good though…

Let’s do it here.

I trust in RPG Player. 

I take a deep breath.

The scene in front of me turned gray. 

The noise entering my ears disappeared. 

All my emotions like fear, agitation, and every undulation was gone. 

Clear Mind: 100%.

This time around I grabbed the arm of Ira-sama and synchronized. 

◇Light Hero Anna’s POV◇

Makoto-san suddenly grabbed the arm of Esther-san. 

“Makoto-san, what’s the ma—” (Anna)

I couldn’t finish what I was saying. 

Shivers ran down my back and I took distance from Makoto-san. 

“M-Master…” (Momo)

Momo-chan who was closeby just like me had her legs grow weak.

Even with that, she was trying to go to where Makoto-san is as if she were crawling her way there. 

“T-That’s dangerous!” (Anna)

Those words naturally came out from me. 

I don’t know why I thought that. 

I instinctively felt that we must not approach Makoto-san. 

“T-Takatsuki Makoto?! What are you doing?!” (Esther)

The Destiny Oracle who had her arm grabbed shouted flustered.

Makoto-san didn’t say anything.

“XXXXX…” (Makoto)

No, he was using a low voice. 

He muttered in the kind of low voice that would be erased in a crowd. 

At the time when I tried to pick up what he was saying…

(Eh?) (Anna)

In an instant, Makoto-san’s body was covered in a rainbow colored light.

It didn’t even take a blink before that light disappeared. 

Just what in the world…before I could search for the answer, the next situation happened. 

*Gashan!*

Something cracked above. 

When I look, I could see the Demon Lord Bifrons having cut the barrier magic of Makoto-san with his big scythe. 

Monsters and the Demon Lord enter from that opening.

“It was quite strong, but it wasn’t enough to stop us. Now then, next is…hm?” (Bifrons)

The Demon Lord was showing a completely leisure expression, but when he saw Makoto-san’s state, his face changed. 

“Strange mana…no, ether…? It is a power I didn’t feel before…” (Bifrons)

The Demon Lord looked with suspicion at Makoto-san. 

“My familiars, target that masked boy.” (Bifrons)

Hundreds of monsters attacked Makoto-san at once at the orders of the Demon Lord.

Makoto-san was standing spaced out with him still grabbing the arm of Esther-san. 

Johnny-san, Volkh-san, and I who saw this couldn’t move.

‘Makoto-san!’…I tried to shout this, but then I noticed…

I-I can’t speak?! 

Not only that.

I can’t move my body.

(What’s happening?!) (Anna)

I got flustered and tried to at least move a finger, but it didn’t move, as if it were fixed in place. 

…No, they were moving slowly. 

My movements were slow, as if I were buried in sand. 

“Die! Hero!” 

“Kyakyakyakya!” 

A number of the fast monsters attacked Makoto-san. 

At the moment when the sharp claws and fangs were about to reach him…the movements of the monsters stopped in midair completely. 

…And then, the monsters that were charging were stopping in place one after the other.

As if they were fixed in place in midair. 

The same as me. 

No, it was the same as us.

Johnny-san, Volkh-san, and everyone else; not a single one was opening their mouth. 

Not a single soul was making a ruckus at this abnormal situation. 

By the time I noticed, the place that was so noisy just a moment ago was now dead silent as if it had been a lie. 

“T-Takatsuki Makoto…you must not. Let go. Anymore than this is…” (Esther)

Only Esther-san who was close to Makoto-san was able to speak.

“This is a surprise… You weren’t a Spirit User?” (Bifrons)

Demon Lord Bifrons speaks. 

The Demon Lord and the surrounding monsters were wary of Makoto-san and didn’t get close. 

“A time magic barrier… The closer you get, the slower the time flow. It is a rare ancient spell. Even I am seeing this for the first time.” (Bifrons)

The Demon Lord slowly raised his big scythe. 

“But there’s a weak point to this spell.” (Bifrons)

The next instant, the blade wave of the Demon Lord pierced the chest of Makoto-san.

Teleport! 

Right, the Demon Lord can ignore the distance with his blade waves! 

(Makoto-san!!) (Anna)

“Takatsuki Makoto?!” (Esther)

My scream that couldn’t be let out, and the scream of the Destiny Oracle-san overlapped. 

“Guh…!” (Makoto)

Bright red blood came out from Makoto-san’s mouth and chest. 

(Makoto-san…! No way!) (Anna)

Move! 

Why is my body not moving?! 

At this rate, Makoto-san is going to…!

“This ended awfully easily. My weapon has a death curse on it. If that blade hits your heart, you will die without doubt. These are your last moments, so let’s see your bare face at least.” (Bifrons)

At the same time as Bifrons said this, the mask of Makoto-san split in two and fell.

Looks like that slash of before cut his mask as well.

The expressionless face of Makoto-san shows up.

“An average human. I thought there would be an interesting secret below that mask though. Then, let’s cut off that head of—” (Bifrons)

“I finally managed to synchronize.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san speaks.

(Eh?) (Anna)

It was his usual tone. 

Despite his heart having been pierced

Makoto-san is okay! 

And yet…why is my heart this stirred up?

Even though it is the usual voice of Makoto-san that relaxed my heart before…

“To think you could still speak. You are tenacious for a human.” (Bifrons)

“Hm? You are talking about this?” (Makoto)

Makoto-san pointed at the hole that was opened in his own chest.

There was a big wound that was painful to even look at. 

“No living being can escape death when injured by my Death Scythe.” (Bifrons)

Even when hearing the words of the Demon Lord, Makoto-san was calm.

“It is okay. I have stopped the time of this wound after all. I won’t die.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san wiped off the blood from his mouth and spoke indifferently. 

As if it were someone else’s business.

“…Don’t be silly. No matter how slow you make time, you won’t be saved from that wound.” (Bifrons)

The Demon Lord laughed at his words.

But the leisure expression of before was gone now.

Most of all, the attitude of Makoto-san…

Even though his death has been sentenced, he is looking around nonchalantly. 

(!) (Anna)

Our eyes met for an instant. 

And yet, his gaze passed by as if I didn’t even exist.

The depths of Makoto-san’s eyes…

They shone rainbow for an instant, and goosebumps ran through my whole body. 

“You have reversed the day and night of this continent, huh… Quite the spell, Demon Lord Bifrons.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san says with a peaceful tone. 

This is weird. 

We should be in definite peril here. 

And yet, I couldn’t feel that at all from Makoto-san’s tone.

Right now, Makoto-san was scarier than the Demon Lord.

“…It is the Miracle that that personage lent me. It isn’t something I can use infinitely… Why can you speak? Why are you not dying? Are you really a human?” (Bifrons)

The Demon Lord had eyes as if looking at a creepy thing. 

It is true that Makoto-san talking so casually despite having a fatal wound on his heart is abnormal.

“I stopped the time of it. Didn’t I tell you that?” (Makoto)

“…” 

The Demon Lord opened his eyes wide at what Makoto-san said.

“Impossible… You really are stopping the time? There’s no way you can completely stop time…” (Bifrons)

“Now then…” (Makoto)

Makoto-san slowly raised his right arm.

And then…said this…

Time Spirit-sans.” (Makoto)

“Aaaaaah! Don’t! That’s against article 121 of the Divine Realm Regulations—” (Esther)

The one who raised a scream was Esther-san.

Makoto-san smiled faintly.

“But you can see the same future as me, right? Then, you can’t shake off my hand.” (Makoto)

“That’s true…! That’s true but…! That’s true but…!” (Esther)

“You bastards, just what are you…” (Bifrons)

The Demon Lord was agitated by the conversation of Makoto-san and Esther-san.

I am too.

I can’t keep up with the conversation of the two at all. 

“Time Spirit-sans, please correct the distortion of time.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san slowly pointed west. 

What is he…

“Wa?!” (Bifrons)

The Demon Lord raised his voice in surprise. 

The sun showed up.

The night sky slowly grew brighter. 

The light of the sun…

I basked in the sunlight, and I felt power well up in me. 

“Ma…koto-san!” (Anna)

I finally managed to speak. 

Makoto-san turned at my call.

“As expected of the Light Hero. Looks like you can move even inside the time magic barrier.” (Makoto)

“M-More importantly, we have to heal that wound…” (Anna)

There’s a big wound on Makoto-san’s chest. 

But I was ignored. 

Even at that time, the sun was rising at an unbelievable speed. 

““GYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!””

Screams reverberate here and there.

The undead subordinates of the Demon Lord.

Sunlight is a fatal poison for them. 

Undead can’t exist under the sun. 

“Stop it!!” (Bifrons)

The Demon Lord appeared right in front of Makoto-san, and cut off the right arm that Makoto-san had raised. 

“Makoto-san!” (Anna)

I screamed for who knows how many times now, but Makoto-san himself wasn’t changing his expression at all.

“Too bad for you, but I have asked the Time Spirits to do the Time Returning Miracle. No matter how much you cut me, it is pointless. Rather, it seems like they are burning with even more passion now that the Spirit User has been injured.” (Makoto)

Even with a hole on his chest and one arm missing, Makoto-san spoke indifferently, and I was at a loss for words at this. 

“…You bastard…are you crazy?” (Bifrons)

Fear was clearly showing in the face of the Demon Lord. 

“Takatsuki Makoto!! Anymore than this and your body and mind won’t be able to endure!” (Esther)

Esther-san shouts. 

“…True… Looks like…I am close…to my limit…” (Makoto)

The tone of Makoto-san suddenly grew weak.

The sun stood right above us.

“With this, we are done. I will undo the synchro.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san let go of Esther-san’s arm. 

At that moment, blood spurts out from the chest of Makoto-san.

Makoto-san slowly collapses. 

“M-Master!” (Momo)

“Makoto-san!” (Anna)

Momo-chan ran off faster than even I did. 

Her face was covered in tears. 

“Momo…the sunlight is bad for your body…” (Makoto)

It is unbelievable, but Makoto-san was worrying more about Momo-chan than himself. 

“Master! You must not… Don’t die… Please don’t die!!” (Momo)

Momo-chan was wailing at the side of Makoto-san. 

The lifeless eyes of Makoto-san were directed this way. 

I tremble. 

“Ma…koto…-san?” (Anna)

“Anna-san…I leave the rest to you……..please.” (Makoto)

Saying this, Makoto-san closed his eyes and didn’t move anymore. 

“MASTER!!!!” (Momo)

The scream of Momo-chan echoed far and wide.

N-No way…

“Healing Magic: [Resurrection]!” (Esther)

Esther-san who was by his side immediately casted healing magic on him.

The blood stopped and the wound slowly healed. 

“It is okay! He is still alive! Leave Makoto to me! You fulfill your own role.” (Esther)

I return to my senses at the words of Esther-san.

‘Defeat the Demon Lord…please’.

The words of Makoto-san resurface. 

The light of the sun was shining brightly from the sky.

(I must do this…) (Anna)

I must not waste this chance that Makoto-san has created to the point of near death. 

I confirm the surroundings.

The subordinate monsters including the Demon Lord were beginning to retreat. 

(Because of them…Makoto-san has…!) (Anna)

I held tightly my sword shining in rainbow color.

      1. I don’t think it’s him because then they could have released him right after he traveled to the past, and it’s already confirmed that makoto has been gone for months back in the present, besides it’s already confirmed that some of “Abel’s” archivements are makoto’s and Abel disappears at the end of the story leaving “Anna” all alone to fund the sun country, so I think makoto managed to time travel and Anna managed the sun country for a while until it became able to take care of itself then she followed makoto the only way she could: by freezing herself until makoto finish his time travelling

      2. @Felipe Well I also believe it more likely to be Anna and with reasoning it make more sense too, but don’t forget that from what we know, the past seem to affect the present gradually not instantly like Abel statue for example, so you could say that both the past and present seem to be connect someway, so returning from my example that Makoto is in the coffin like he can’t be awaken because the “past” him as not fallen asleep in the coffin, and it also mentioned by Ira that Makoto have already greatly change the past more than what he should have done(?) and it cannot be helped because Iblis is also trying to do it, or it just Ira that make Makoto achievement to Abel, which is totally possible. After all, for all we know right now it could Johnny who somehow develop a crush on Makoto and I won’t be surprise either, heck it could be Cain too, and that one could be cool on it on way, but let not forget that Ira can’t send back Makoto into the present too so it can be pretty much both, but I also believe it more likely to be Anna.

    1. Time Spirit magic is usable for anyone with destiny magic proficiency above lv 100 and the spirit magic skill, in makoto’s case it’s just that either his proficiency with destiny magic is still not high enough to see time spirits or time spirits are harder to find but he managed to do it with a little boost from Ira

    2. Noah, Ira, and Furiae can all use Destiny Magic. Keep in mind Ira is a useless Goddess who only has domain over a single continent, while the other Goddesses likely have command over entire planets. The new gods tend to use magic separate from Spirit magic, since Eir basically wiped Spirit King Makoto from existence.

      1. Actually that’s a point. Every time Makoto syncs with someone to cast a spell outside his capabilities he gets a proficiency boost. Why doesn’t anyone use that as a training method? Sync with progressively more powerful people and cast spells.

      2. Probably because it is an insane training method, they would have to endure the backlash after syncing. Heck even Makoto is reluctant in syncing with anyone outside his profeciency.

    1. I’m pretty sure that Makoto is the Light Hero that everyone remembers even though he doesn’t have the skill. The stories recount how the Light Hero had a poor sense of danger, and all the people who lived long enough to meet Makoto in the future mistake him for the Light Hero. Considering how the stories don’t talk about Anna being Abel, I’m guessing people Makoto became Abel as the stories were passed through the generations. Despite not having the Light Hero skill, he achieved the feat of summoning the sun and bringing light into the darkness. That kind of ability can easily be mistaken as the Light Hero’s skill.

  13. Not a human, nor a spirit, nor a god. He’s just a force of nature, and he’s turning the tables on this absurd miracle.

    Has a point too, doesn’t he? If you can pause time, then it doesn’t matter whether we’re dealing with a pierced heart or severed limb. The question here now is how overpowered will Anna be in these conditions and will that be enough to crush Bifrons?

    At the very least they aren’t at a severe disadvantage now. The subordinates aren’t the issue, just Bifrons himself.

    1. reminds me of d.grayman. One of character can reverse time in an area but time will correct itself. If she turn back time when someone is injured then when time revert back that injuries will return so if its terminal injuries then they will die once the time reverted. She is crying when she is reverting time.

  15. I read it twice! I just had to! Makoto is awesome in this chapter! His heart pierced! His arm chopped off! And he doesn’t even care! Just how cool can you get Makoto!? Awesome! And now here comes an enraged (and probably bloodthirsty) Anna! Poor Bifrons is about to get destroyed lulz

    Thanks for such an amazing chapter!

    Nope… Makoto was definitely THAT person. And clearly he made a big impression – big enough to snap Bifrons out of the daze/confusion of losing his own consciousness.

    1. I agree. I have some more proofs for it:

      Chapter 71, 73:
      > “…Ha…te…Ha…te…Hu…mans…”
      A groan.
      That’s…the Giant is still alive?
      Yeah, you must hate them, right? I get you. I do.
      I heard a mysterious voice.
      A childish voice, a girlish voice, a young and gentle voice.
      “…I…want…po…wer…!”
      I have a bad feeling.
      “Someone! Finish the Giant!” (Sofia)
      Princess Sofia shouted.
      The knights and adventurers obey that voice.
      “I will give you power. That’s why, I will take your heart, okay?”
      The mysterious voice continues to speak.
      “Lucy, Sa-san, can you hear this child-like voice?” (Makoto)
      “Eh?” (Lucy)
      “Voice of a child?” (Aya)
      Does no one hear it?

      > “By the way, that child-like voice that sounded before the Taboo Giant appeared, what was that?” (Makoto)
      Noah-sama might know about it.
      “Aah, that? That was the voice of the person you call the Great Demon Lord.” (Noah)
      “Eh?” (Makoto)
      Noah-sama nonchalantly speaks out a shocking statement.
      “The Great Demon Lord has revived?!” (Makoto)
      “No, they don’t. That voice was just a residual will. A past log.” (Noah)
      “…Okay?” (Makoto)
      I don’t understand well.

      Why Makoto is the only one can hear GDK’s voice?

      Chapter 87, 88:
      > “After defeating the Great Demon Lord, I have another dungeon I have to head to.” (Makoto)
      The Deep Sea Temple where Noah-sama is waiting.
      What’s waiting for me there is said to be even stronger than the Great Demon Lord, the divine beast, Leviathan.
      No, that’s a long path.
      I wonder if I can actually clear that.
      “…Why? You can obtain everything you desire, you know?” (Noel)
      Princess Noel has surprise in her expression.
      “There’s someone that’s waiting for me.” (Makoto)
      “…Is that so?” (Noel)
      Princess Noel didn’t know how to respond to that.
      She had slightly cold eyes.
      Hm? Did I say something weird?

      > Princess Noel was looking at me with slightly cold eyes.
      “Hero Makoto-sama, are you imitating the Savior-sama’s legend there?” (Noel)
      “Eh?” (Makoto)
      She suddenly said something weird.
      “Legend of the Savior-sama?” (Makoto)
      “…You don’t know about it? It is a famous story though.” (Noel)
      Princess Noel told me.
      The Savior Abel who defeated the Great Demon Lord and brought peace to the world 1,000 years ago.
      This legendary hero, Abel, gathered the surviving humans and founded the Sun Country of Highland.
      That would be the year 0 of the Salvation Era.
      The people of Highland wanted Abel to become their King.
      But Savior Abel said ‘there’s someone waiting for me’ and left.
      No one had seen him after that.
      That’s the legend.

      He said “There’s someone that’s waiting for me” even he didn’t know about the legend. I don’t think it is just a coincidence.

      Chapter 132:
      > 1,000 years ago…?
      Woke up?
      T-This is…?!
      “C-Could it be that you are the Demon Lord, Bifrons-san?” (Makoto)
      He really did wake up!
      But when I asked this, the vampire bursted out laughing.
      “Hahahahahahahaha!! Me?! The Grand Marquess Bifrons?! Do humans say such amusing things after 1,000 years pass?! No, I am just a nameless High Demon. Being mistaken for Bifrons-sama is the highest of honors, human.”
      “I-I see.” (Makoto)
      It wasn’t the Demon Lord. That’s a relief.
      I am the only one conversing with it.
      The remaining two have not moved at all until now.
      The black cat at my shoulder was going ‘Fuuu Fuuu!’ and its fur was standing on its end.
      At that moment, all of a sudden…
      These words showed up in front of me…
      [Will you run away from the confidant of the Demon Lord Bifrons, Setekh?]
      Yes ←
      No
      (Achaa…) (Makoto)
      The one in front of us was quite the dangerous guy.
      Abel-sama! You didn’t end it at all!

      Makoto is a bit similar to Abel, isn’t he?

      Chapter 173:
      > At the front of the giant fortress city, there’s the statue of Savior Abel holding up a sword.
      This greenish statue reminds me of the Statue of Liberty. 
      (Hm?) (Makoto)
      I felt something strange.
      What is it?
      “Waah, I can see it now.
      The capital of the Sun Country. Wonder if Eri-chan is doing well.” (Aya)
      Sa-san had her body pushed against the handrails of the flying battleship. 
      I thought ‘that’s dangerous’, but the current Sa-san wouldn’t have a single scratch even if she were to fall from the flying battleship.
      “Hey, Sa-san.” (Makoto)
      “What is it?” (Aya)
      “Was the statue of Savior Abel always that color?” (Makoto)
      I spoke out about what was bothering me.
      “Eh? I think it is the same though.” (Aya)
      “…When I saw it before, I think it was a different color…” (Makoto)
      Am I remembering wrong?
      “I would notice if the color suddenly changed.” (Aya)
      “Hmm, right.” (Makoto)
      It is just as Sa-san said. I must be remembering wrong.

      I don’t think that he remembered wrong.

  17. Hoho! Looks like the MakotoxIra ship is getting closer to sailing now that Makoto has performed Le Syncro ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Anyways so basically Makoto used Za Warudo huh? Now he has synched with Time Spirits. Who cares if it’s against the rules Ira, Typhon already broke the rules anyways when he sent somebody back in time to change history. Stopping time in a certain area is something minor in comparison.

    Meanwhile Makoto is so nonchalant about getting his heart stabbed and an arm cut off as it tis but a flesh wound. Even Cain would say, “Yo, you crazy.” if he saw this. Well it certainly has made waifu Anna pissed and she’s about to take her anger out on Bifrons now that the sun has returned and her Light Hero skill has activated.

  18. If you think about it, isn’t the heart a really useless organ for Makoto? Its only function is to move his blood through his body, but compared to what other things he can do without using up any kind of energy or concentration, doing just that much with his water magic 24 hours a day should not have any significant impact. I kind of hope that this will find a use sometime, it’s just too cool not to include. Also makes you wonder just how far you can go with just magic.

    Still on the topic of useless organs, does Makoto really need his eyes? It would make sense for his perspective change not to use them.

  19. Thanks for the chapter.

    I’m curious how the story will save Makoto from :
    – the fatal injury he got (getting heal by Ira but will probably be unconscious for days)

    – the run out of his lifespan (he has less than a week, but didn’t kill anything since the lost of it, and surely won’t wake up before a while)

    – and the possible back slash of his synchro with Ira. ( unknown territory from there)

  20. Thanks for the chapter. Makoto has used Time Spirits, which means a possible way back to the future has been opened. And Anna’s rage appears to be the trigger that will awaken her true power. Looking forward to see what happens next.

  23. “Even with a hole on his chest and one arm missing, Makoto-san spoke indifferently, and I was at a loss for words at this. ”

    I remember Nagumo Hajime’s (From Arifureta) fight with someone. Even though Hajime’s mechanical left arm is missing and his stomach has been pierced by someone, he is still able to inflict fatal damage to his enemies because of his fury towards a certain god that stole Yue’s body. And because of his rampage, there’s a powerful pressure that keeps both his side and the enemies side tremble with fear.

    Like

  24. That was intense and I think it had to happen this way. Remember when Ira-chan said that what made the heroes be able to overcome Bifons in the past was the lost of their comrades to Cain but that didn’t happen with Makoto.

    Sure, they were fired up after the half year training but the author threw in how much more powerful Bifon’s was compared to most other demon lords with having lived for so long. Makoto pushing himself is what definitely pushed Anna further to this moment we’ve been waiting for.

    Aaaahhh!! I wish I could use the time spirit-sans to go into the future to read the next chapter already.

  25. Notice how Makoto speaks in third person? Is someone possessing him? Maybe sharing his consciousness? Is is Noah, or the mysterious Naia or even a not mentioned yet person?

    There was a theory that said Naia gave him the RPG Player skill. That skill has some awareness as it would sometimes give choices as jokes and in this chapter it clearly instructs Makoto to use clear mind 100. What is strange is that Ira should know more about the skill, since she wrote the descriptions for every skill.

    Like

    1. Maybe the clear mind 100 was because Ira’s power and proficiency were too high, so Makoto would get mindbreak NTR’d by her if he didn’t.

  26. This chapter was pretty awesome. Synchronising with a goddess to use her power was pretty wild. In the past when he did absurd still past his limits with magic, he often got a proficiency boost, so will this push up his Destiny magic proficiency in one go? Assuming he can handle the after effects of having done it…….
    Also having seen Makoto die in front of her (even if resurrection is in progress), it seems like Anna has finally to do something an actual hero would do and take out the bad guys herself. Good on her. I hope the author shows the fight~

    Thanks for the translation!
