WM – Chapter 269: Takatsuki Makoto receives an oracle from the Destiny Goddess

Sponsored Chapter!


“Forget about the drool.” (Ira)

Ira-sama wiped her mouth with a red face. 

Right, the Goddess can read my mind. 

Looks like my consideration was unnecessary. 

“So, what did you want to talk about?” (Makoto)

I ask while still kneeled.

When I raised my head, there were the beautiful slender legs of the floating Ira-sama. 

At this angle, I thought I would be able to see inside her skirt for sure, but by some divine force, I unfortunately couldn’t see her panties. 

Looks like it works the same as with Noah-sama. 

“Where are you looking?!” (Ira)

Ira-sama uncrossed her legs and grabbed the hem of her skirt with a bright red face. 

“It is because you were floating Ira-sama that the positioning was just right though?” (Makoto)

I thought for sure she was trying to show them on purpose. 

“There’s no way that would be the case! I will make a place to sit at!” (Ira)

Ira-sama snapped her fingers and *pang!* a big sound was made that shook the place, and a giant canopy bed fell down. 

“Oh?!” (Makoto)

W-Wow.

Ira-sama sat on the bed, and she slapped the spot by her side. 

“Come on, you sit here too.” (Ira)

“…Uhm…” (Makoto)

Is this Goddess doing this on purpose? 

Sit by her side at the bed? 

If a top class beauty Goddess were to do something like that, a man would misunderstand, you know? 

“Huh?! Do you intend to put a hand on me? If you do that, these little ones would execute you!” (Ira)

“Little ones?” (Makoto)

When I looked, there was a gathering of plushies with big scissors close to the bed. 

They were staring at me with their blank eyes. 

S-Scary…

I don’t have the courage to put a hand on her to begin with, but I take some distance from Ira-sama as I sit by her side. 

“Now then, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Ira)

Ira-sama made a smile that sent shivers down my spine, and her crystal-like eyes were staring at me. 

When I look up close, she really does have inhuman beauty. 

“Y-Yes, Ira-sama?” (Makoto)

“Good job on the subjugation of the Demon Lord.” (Ira)

“A lot of unexpected things happened though.” (Makoto)

“…Yeah, that’s true.” (Ira)

Ira-sama grimaced at my words. 

“You can see the future, right, Ira-sama? You couldn’t predict it?” (Makoto)

If we had known beforehand, we could have tried to do something about it. 

“M-My bad. But…the Miracle Magic that the Demon Lord used…it was strange. It is originally not a feat that the Demon Lord Bifrons should be able to do. Someone is pulling the strings at the back.” (Ira)

“…The Devils?” (Makoto)

I have heard that Iblis is the Apostle of Typhon.

Then the ones who lend help to their subordinate Demon Lords must be the Devils. 

“…Devils rarely pull roundabout tricks like controlling time and setting traps. They consider absolute power that can crush everything as supreme. It is unlike them. There’s the possibility that another God faction is involved…” (Ira)

“Well, it was our victory in the end, so isn’t it okay to not mind it?” (Makoto)

“Hah?!” (Ira)

Ira-sama made an ‘unbelievable!’ face at my words. 

“When the night and day shifted, I confirmed several thousands of possible futures. They were all futures of ‘the Light Hero falling’. I thought that was the end…” (Ira)

“But we solved it by synchronizing.” (Makoto)

“You…” (Ira)

Ira-sama held her head at what I said.

“Do you understand just how dangerous it is to connect with me? There’s only one in millions of people who have a body that a Goddess can descend to like the Destiny Oracle Esther-chan. If a human with no such compatibility were to synchronize with a Goddess like me, they would be crippled in an instant, you know? I am meeting you here today for the sake of that too…” (Ira)

“What do you mean by that?” (Makoto)

Crippled? That’s quite the dangerous word that came out. 

“A frail resident of the Mortal Realm and a God that possesses eternal life and an eternal body; the difference in existences is way too big. There’s no doubt it has caused negative effects to your body and mind. Here, I will check for you.” (Ira)

After saying this, Ira-sama touched all over my body unrestrainedly. 

“Wa, that tickles.” (Makoto)

“Endure it.” (Ira)

T-This Goddess…

I will say it as many times as it takes, but Ira-sama is a peerless beauty. 

A girl like that is feeling up my body unrestrainedly. 

Clear Mind, Clear Mind…

“Oh…?” (Ira)

Ira-sama lowered her eyebrows. 

“Is something the matter?” (Makoto)

“…This is strange. I don’t see any abnormalities. Hey, Takatsuki Makoto, do you feel anything off with your body? Is there maybe a part of your memories missing?” (Ira)

“Hmm…” (Makoto)

I tilt my head. 

My body felt heavy after having slept for 3 days, but there wasn’t anything off aside from that with my body. 

As for my memories, they are currently clear. 

“Ah, now that I think about it…” (Makoto)

I remember about the happenings of the underground lake, and tell her the story about me hearing ‘sounds of the future’.

“Eh, future? I gave you the Destiny Magic: Elementary Skill, so you shouldn’t have Clairvoyance though?” (Ira)

“That’s right. It is weird.” (Makoto)

“Hmmm~, your mana hasn’t increased, and your Skills haven’t cha————eh?” (Ira)

Ira-sama, who was fondling my body around, opened her eyes wide. 

“Is something the matter, Ira-sama?” (Makoto)

“You…why do you have Anima in your body…eh? This is my Anima? No way… Why?” (Ira)

She didn’t answer my question. 

She made a stern face as she observed my body. 

“Here!” (Ira)

“Ouch.” (Makoto)

Ira-sama suddenly grabbed my right arm. 

She forcefully turned my sleeve over. 

There was a blue shining crest floating there. 

“That’s…” (Makoto)

If I remember correctly, at the time when the comet was falling onto Great Keith…

“The crest that Noah drew…?” (Ira)

“That’s right.” (Makoto)

I nodded at Ira-sama’s words. 

In the past, when I failed to Transform my right arm into a Spirit and my magic went out of control, Noah-sama placed this spell on me to stop that. 

“I also know about your actions at Great Keith from the records. Eir-oneesama helped out, and I am also aware that Noah temporarily descended to the Mortal Realm and placed a Miracle on her believer to stop his Spirit Transformation. But…this is a double-layered magic formula? Moreover, it is intricately hidden.” (Ira)

“Ira-sama…what’s the effect of this spell?” (Makoto)

I am getting uneasy here.

Noah-sama plotting something at the back is the usual, but did she put some weird magic in me? 

Ira-sama slowly opened her mouth. 

“A Miracle Spell that assists…in the synchronization with the Destiny Goddess.” (Ira)

The words of Ira-sama reverberate in my head. 

Assist in the synchronization with Ira-sama…

In other words, the event of just before. 

I thought it was impressive I could synchronize with a Goddess, but it was thanks to Noah-sama, huh. 

“Then there’s no problem, right?” (Makoto)

That’s exactly what saved us.

As expected of Noah-sama. 

“What are you saying?! What happened this time around was a tsunami of unexpected events. No one should have been able to predict this.” (Ira)

“Didn’t she simply think I might do that?” (Makoto)

Noah-sama and I have known each other for long. 

I feel like she could easily predict what I would do and set this up.

“You could say she reached that conclusion after seeing your radical actions, but…why conceal it…? Could it be that Noah predicted this? There’s no way that’s…” (Ira)

Ira-sama was mumbling, but the emotion I had was only one. 

“Thank you very much…Noah-sama.” (Makoto)

I am currently not a believer, but I placed the dagger in front of my chest and offered a prayer. 

“You…this is my temple in the Divine Realm, the Destiny Goddess… I am impressed you dare pray to a different Goddess in my face.” (Ira)

“Ah…sorry.” (Makoto)

I apologized, and Ira-sama sighed.

“Well, fine. I don’t like the fact that Noah helped out, but we dealt with a Demon Lord by synchronizing. There’s no abnormalities to the body and mind of Takatsuki Makoto. It resulted in something good. I will talk about the plans for the future now.” (Ira)

“Yes, Ira-sama.” (Makoto)

I correct my posture. 

“First, the bad news. I have been forbidden from descending in my Oracle.” (Ira)

“Ah…” (Makoto)

I thought it was rare to see Esther-san herself when I woke up.

I was wondering ‘why isn’t it Ira-sama herself?’.

It was because she has been forbidden from descending. 

The reason is obvious. 

“It is…because of me, right?” (Makoto)

“The Time Miracle Magic that Takatsuki Makoto used… Having a resident of the Mortal Realm use that goes heavily against the Divine Realm Regulations… This is the penalty of that.” (Ira)

The words of Ira-sama were lighter than expected. 

“I am sorry…” (Makoto)

“I don’t mind. If on top of missing the changes in history, I ended up having Hero Abel die, it would have been possible that my position as a Goddess would be revoked. I would rather take this punishment than to go back to being a Goddess Trainee again.” (Ira)

That’s unexpected.

It looks like she isn’t that angry about being forbidden from descending. 

Or more like, you can even have your position as Goddess revoked? 

The world of the Gods has their fair share of pains too.

“Also, if we use the necklace I gave you, we can communicate as we have until now.” (Ira)

“Got it.” (Makoto)

I nodded. 

“Now then, next.” (Ira)

Ira-sama crossed her arms and looked at me meaningfully. 

“What is it?” (Makoto)

“…”

When I asked, I felt she was hesitant. 

Is there more bad news? 

“Whether it is bad or not…depends on how the individual takes it. This is something that involves you, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Ira)

I corrected my posture and waited for the words of Ira-sama. 

“Hero Abel…no, Holy Maiden Anna? That girl is in love with you, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Ira)

“…….Eh?” (Makoto)

Are we having a love talk here? 

No no, there should be a deep meaning to this. 

I waited for the next words. 

“Hero Abel’s trigger to awaken was the death of the Fire Hero Olga. Just before she fell in the battle against Demon Lord Bifrons, she would say ‘Live strong. You are my prided son’ which became the trigger. That’s how Hero Abel would awaken as the Light Hero.” (Ira)

“That’s…I know.” (Makoto)

It is a famous story.

But the current situation is…

“But the current Fire Hero Olga died by the hands of the mad Demon Lord Cain. Abel lost his trigger to awaken. However, he managed to awaken his original power just recently. Do you know the reason why?” (Ira)

“That’s…” (Makoto)

I am beginning to see what she is trying to get at.

“I think you have already noticed, but you are the support of Abel’s heart at present, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Ira)

“…”

It is troubling to have it stated so bluntly.

I do feel honored though. 

But the other party is the legendary savior.

“Anna told you she had something to talk about with you later, right?” (Ira)

“Yes… Why do you know that?” (Makoto)

“I saw the future of Anna. I won’t give you detailed instructions, but try to answer her feelings as much as possible.” (Ira)

“I would need to know about what she is going to talk about in the first place…” (Makoto)

“You will be confessed to.” (Ira)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

Isn’t that something you shouldn’t be telling me?! 

“Ira-sama…” (Makoto)

“What’s with that face? It is better than being confessed without having your heart ready for it, right? Listen well here. Don’t go rejecting her not even by mistake, okay?” (Ira)

“B-But I…” (Makoto)

I can’t hide my agitation.

“I know. You have your lovers waiting in the future and have no intention of staying in this era. But answer the feelings of Anna even if it is a lie. Until you defeat the Great Demon Lord.” (Ira)

“…”

I don’t know what to say. 

Right.

I came to the past to save the world.

I don’t have the leeway to choose the means. 

But…to deceive Anna for the sake of that? 

Can such an act really be forgiven towards a party member? 

Playing with the heart of someone…

“Takatsuki Makoto, I know this is heart-wrenching, but…you are the only one. Please.” (Ira)

She took my hands with her small hands and looked at me with serious eyes. 

“That’s sly.” (Makoto)

I sigh.

I will think of a countermeasure. 

As sincere as possible, and in a way that doesn’t hurt Anna. 

“Thanks, Takatsuki Makoto. You are a real help.” (Ira)

A sigh of relief reached my ears. 

At any rate, Ira-sama is really uptight. 

If it were Noah-sama or Eir-sama, they would definitely say something like ‘You are lucky being loved by a beauty like that. Push her down☆!’

“Ugh.” (Ira)

Ira-sama must have read my mind, she made a face as if saying she couldn’t argue that. 

“Am I really that uptight? Before I became a Goddess, my sisters told me a whole lot to relax my shoulders…” (Ira)

“You were told that a lot…?” (Makoto)

Well, I did have that feeling from how she was descended the whole time instead of just telling her Oracle though. 

On the other hand, Eir-sama looks like she just goes with the flow, and feels like the type that schemes something, but she is reliable. 

“Hey! Don’t say that! I am also doing my best.” (Ira)

“Of course, I rely on you a whole lot too, Ira-sama. So, what should we do next?” (Makoto)

We derailed quite a lot there, so I moved to the main topic. 

We may have defeated the Demon Lord, but there’s still a lot more to do. 

I still haven’t even seen the shadow of the Great Demon Lord. 

“…”

“Ira-sama?” (Makoto)

Ira-sama didn’t answer my question immediately and had her gaze wander. 

Is it something that’s difficult to say?

If it is something that’s even more difficult than even the dealing of Anna-san from before, that would be…

“Uhm…can you listen to what I have to say about my mistake with the battle against the Demon Lord Bifrons…?” (Ira)

She asked me with an upward glance. 

“I will listen. Anything.” (Makoto)

“Really?” (Ira)

When I said that, Ira-sama made a big smile. 

She is unfairly cute. 

I fell with that cuteness…not really, but despite everything said, I do trust Ira-sama. 

It was thanks to Ira-sama that we managed to defeat the Demon Lord after all. She also gives advice every now and then. 

That’s why I want to overcome the difficult hurdles of the past together with her. 

I don’t say it out loud, but the feelings in my heart have been transmitted. 

Ira-sama opens her mouth as if she had resolved herself. 

“Takatsuki Makoto…want to go defeat the Great Demon Lord?” (Ira)


Author Note

Today is the sale of the 6th volume of the Light Novel and the 1st volume of the manga. 

One thing I want to point out. 

I have added a Noah-sama POV in the 1st volume of the manga. In all 269 chapters, I haven’t written a Noah-sama POV even once, so that would be the first time. I actually wanted to save that for the last chapters though. I can’t go against the Editor-san…

      Aah, i see you finally understand how wonderful is the thing called “Thighs” and “Panties” huh. This guy is a man of culture as well indeed.

      Ira-sama, who was fondling my body around, opened her eyes wide.
      “You…why do you have Anima in your body…eh? This is my Anima? No way… Why?” (Ira)
      She didn’t answer my question.
      She made a stern face as she observed my body.

      Eeh, why she suddenly looks like a pervert? Also she leaves a mark on him meaning that Makoto already hers? Damn that means she stole Makoto from Noah LOL. Setting jokes aside to think that our boy has the power of God that resides inside his body, wouldn’t the current him could easily defeat demon lords? Damn dude the author needs to give a nerf to him. Also noah already predicted that Makoto will do Syncro with a goddess, moreover with ira-chan? holy shit this goddess is indeed too powerful and scary at the same time, her prediction maybe surpassed even Ira, no wonder she at the same rank as Althena. As expected of the princess of the titan tribe.

      “Hero Abel…no, Holy Maiden Anna? That girl is in love with you, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Ira)

      This damn airhead, well there’s a high chance that he still reject her by telling the truth, wonder how the plot moves this time. Also pls don’t tell him about that ira-sama, he hates SPOILER after all.

      1. So many tricks to Noa, she placed an obvious spell on his arm, to keep his spirit form stable, and keep it from spreading past his arm, but he stabbed it with his dagger to break that spell, when he changed all the way against Alex. Also starting to think she hacked his RPG pop-ups, suspicious that the first one was when he met her, then he doesn’t have any since losing the Apostle title, until his life was in danger, right next to Ira, and it was extra detailed this time too.

      2. Yep, it just like she really looks into the future. By this point, I’m not surprised if everything until now was according to Noah calculation. She’s also the one who powered up fuji-yan ability despite her acting. I really like this kind of character that can outplay the enemy using their brain and strategy instead of using brutal power.

      3. I’m starting to think it wasn’t just calculations, with Ira’s comment about another faction and Noah always scheming I’m wondering if shes pulling a Palpatine and playing both sides to direct them in a specific direction. After all the spell Bifrons was given help with was a time spell and we already know Noah works with time spirits, she also knows that Makoto would be moving with Ira in the past and if she had any knowledge of that in present time then it would be simple to set up the Crest ahead of time as we have seen others who seemingly remember Makoto so it would be weird if Noah didn’t. But theres an inconsistency innhow only parts of this past seem to be remembered as the world mostly follows history without Makoto yet atleast 2 characters seem to remember him and mabye more who haven’t revealed it, mabye the goddesses used some divine magic to alter everyone’s memories to match the intended history? But then what about the city in the dungeon? What about Mel and her family? Something is up with the timeline and I look forward to what really happened.

      4. If she really predicted this, perhaps she even predicted Ira’s failure in the Northern Expedition ? Makoto once asked if it was according to her plans that Ira failed, but she denied it. But what if she was lying ?

      5. The cuteness of Ira-chan is illegal. It should be banned.
        Imaginary scenario, Valentine scenario:
        Ira: I finally found you, Makoto ! Here ! A gift !

        Ira suddenly presented me something in the shape of a heart.
        Makoto: What is that , Ira ?

        Ira: Fufu. This a Valentine Chocolate made by me, the Destiny Goddess. I made it with the best ingredient. I gave it to you alone. Be grateful !

        Makoto: Eh ? Only for me ? Thank you , Ira. I will gladly accept it.

        I gave a sincere smile to her and she suddenly blushed for some reason.

        Ira: J-Just take it already and have a taste of it.
        Makoto: Okay, okay, Ira. Let’s see how it tastes… Bitter ! Just what did you put in this chocolate ? What did you fail again ?
        Ira: I didn’t fail ! I just thought that making dark chocolate with 99,9 % of divine cacao would be good. Is it perhaps… not good ?

        She said this with tears in her eyes and I suddenly felt my heart beating faster and my cheeks flushing like a tomato.
        Makoto: T-That is not it. It is bitter, but it is without the best chocolate I ever eaten.
        Ira: Really ? I am glad !
        Her smile made my heart beat even faster and I felt my reason crumbling away. This is why I said something that I shouldn’t had said normally.
        Makoto: D-Do you want to have a taste of it ? Mouth by mouth?
        Ira: Eh? Umm, okay, like the managimous Goddess I am, I will allow you to feed me !
        Makoto: Eh? Really ? T-This is just something I suddenly said without thought. P-Please forget about it.
        Ira: D-Don’t me make me repeat my words ! F-Feed me at once.
        She said this while blushing and her cuteness made my body took action on its own.
        I took the chocolate in my mouth and in order to feed her, I kissed her. I could feel the taste of her saliva mixing with the chocolate, and a fragrance out of this world coming from the beautiful Goddess in front of me. I separated from her after 10 seconds and I could see a trail of saliva conneting our lips. I could also see her beet red face.
        My heart beat even faster from that sight and it started to cause me pain. T-This is bad.
        I think that I… fell in love with Ira.

      8. there better be a Makoto x Ira ending among his harem, or we’ll be real sad. She may be a disappointment but she does at least try her hardest. I can’t imagine Makoto doing anything besides rejecting anna though, but if she learns he has multiple lovers already then she may consider entering the race herself. there is still the chance of him taking her with him to the future.

        He’ll take the Anna to his real time as a reward and fix the story as written in the book he brought in before they go back~

        Well… he’ll make Momo wait a thousand years just for them to come back and that’s painfully long for a little girl(except that idiot who presses the 100M Years button like a real idiot)~

      Is this Goddess doing this on purpose?
      Sit by her side at the bed?

      ““You could say she reached that conclusion after seeing your radical actions, but…why conceal it…? Could it be that Noah predicted this? There’s no way that’s…” (Ira)”
      How suspicious. Is it possible that Noah is the one who helped the Devils. But why ? Also, how did she predict that Makoto would synchronize with Makoto ?

      Ira-chan, please stop your attacks against Makoto ! Don’t you realize how cute you are ?

      I give Ira-chan a new moniker.
      From now on, she will be known as the Owner of Unfair Cuteness.
      All hail Ira-chan !

      1. I have a theory regarding that.
        I think because this is 1000 years in the past Noah of the future knows about what happened here and based on that she placed that spell on Makoto.
        Its possible that the timeline continuity can be maintained by Ira somehow or the other by making Makoto as the Hero Abel but that wont change the Godesses that have noticed his presence in the past. Eir was quite friendly since the first time she came in contact with Makoto. Must be because of the sacrifices he gave. I think similarly Noah knows what happened in the past and she made a countermeasure for that in the future Makoto who was later sent to the past.🤔🤔

      2. A random thought but what if Ira uses a miracle to alter history to match the original but due to how different the timeline has become and how strong of an impression Makoto made some parts of the new history have leaked through into the new one? It would explain why both Bifrons and Momo seem to remember him and Eir with all the sacrifices, it would also give Noah the knowledge to set up her crest in advance

      1. Noah super sus. What if Noah approached Makoto in the first place cause she knew he would go back in time. Cause if you think about it, if Noah never made him her apostle after leaving the water temple he still would have met Fuji-yan and probably joined his religion. aka Ira-Chan.

        Noah ntr’ed Ira confirmed!!!!!!!!!??

    1. Very sus.

      Time spirits confirmed. And who do the spirits follow?
      A hidden spell that increases the chance to synchronize specifically with Ira, placed upon Makoto at a time she shouldn’t have had a clue. Crazy accurate guess?

      The demon side who has too much info about Abel – rather having any at all is already a problem. Information itself which seems to be the method of changing history. The initial raid was stopped before they even got there, knowing about it in advance. Knowing the appearance and the characteristics of Abel’s power.

      Bifrons having access to a spell that warps time, presumably as a gift from Iblis. A spell Ira doesn’t think that even Iblis should be able to do. And the purpose for which is clearly to counter Abel, whom they shouldn’t know about til after. Though interestingly, they didn’t know about the female form (that Anna = Abel). A fact also missing from history books. And their knowledge didn’t include Makoto’s existence (not being a part of the original timeline).

      Certainly Noah has profited greatly – from her Apostle having agreed to go back and save Abel. Athena had to give good terms for Makoto to agree. Did Noah create a problem only her Apostle could fix? Or… worse did she create a problem without caring if Makoto failed? She’s a schemer, but I also think she’s pretty attached to Makoto. But she also has ambition, and despite seeming closer/friends with those goddesses, at least at first she seemed to want revenge. So it is hard to get a read on her.

      Before Makoto going back in time, I had also wondered about the Holy Gods. After the Demon King was defeated, how would he be treated? He had been given leeway – even ignoring being the Apostle of Noah – on account of working in favor of humanity (thus in their own favor). What about after he isn’t needed? The gods to seem to look at mortals in terms of profit/loss. Makoto *might* be something of an exception since he can directly interact with them. But they’ve known him for only a tiny blip in the grand scheme of their endless lifespan. So I’ve considered that Noah could be expecting an eventual betrayal, and could be acting first. Creating a major problem only Makoto could solve. Reading the future and meddling with the past via time spirits.

      Noah seems to profited in another manor too. Cain should be dead by now, but isn’t. And I’m presuming originally that equipment got destroyed, but should be recoverable now. So Noah has regained some things she originally lost. Important cards returned to her hands.

      Maybe I’m going too far with my speculation. But definitely sus.

    Also great chapter in general, full of Makoto x Ira-chan moments. And the comment of the author in the end, I actaully feel it a lot, should be really painful lol, now I wonder if he is gonna change the end so is not a pov of Noah, and instead make before a pov of her.

  9. More Ira is always good. I like the prickly slightly unreliable, but earnest types like Ira a lot. I hope we can get an illustration of her.
    So Noa was prepared for him to synchronise with Ira? Yet more evidence she knew about all this in advance. The fact that Ira is the only goddess he’s able to contact too, make me wonder if she’s being deliberately misled by the others into believing what the original history was and in fact it was originally meant to play out this way? Is it possible to mislead the goddess of destiny about that kind of thing though? I’m not sure.
    I’m guessing Makoto will perform a delaying action with Anna. Get her to promise to settle it after the great demon lord is defeated? After all, not only does he have the whole fact that he plans to return to the future to worry about, but there’s also him being Noa’s future apostle too. It’ll be a disaster if he accepts her feelings then she finds out later. She seriously bears a grudge against Cain after all.
    Now what the hell is Ira talking about? Didn’t a bunch of demon lords have to be defeated before Inblis dies in the original history? Is it ok to skip to the end now? I guess we’ll see~

    Thanks for the translation!

Ah Ira you are far to cute and it seems the no panty magic is part.and parcel with being a goddess, interesting that when Makoto joked about pushing her down she didn’t reject it but told him he needs to beware of the stuffies instead. So our lovable divine disappointment wants to jump straight to the final boss after messing up horribly with Bifrons 3 days ago… yeah I dont see this going poorly at all… Makoto I’m sorry but no matter what you do Anna is now stuck with you based on your actions with every other girl back home

  19. “Forget about the drool.” (Ira)
    There’s the Ponkotsu Goddess we all know and love.

    So looks like Ira has the same Absolute Defense that Noah has so we can’t see her pantsu. Then she tells Makoto to sit next to her on her bed. She tells him not to try anything or her plushies will attack but I get the feeling she probably only said that because she got flustered since after all, she then proceeds to feel him up and previously pushed him down and mounted him.

    Anyways so Ira really did get punished. I still think it’s stupid. The enemy are also breaking the rules so why try to keep upholding them? If they’re worried that other gods will use this as an excuse to begin invading or influencing the world, they’ll do it anyways regardless with the only difference being that they can use the devils’ actions as the excuse instead of the Olympians’. The rule was that a resident of the Mortal Realm can’t use god-ranked magic and Ira is being punished for that but that same rule applies to Bifrons and yet clearly no punishment or anything is being given to their side.

    Anyways looks like the question of whether Noah’s seal didn’t vanish after Makoto’s body had to be rebuilt has now been answered. It’s still there and it apparently hid a second spell. I don’t think Noah is suspicious though. It just feels like she was smart enough to realize that the Ponkotsu Goddess would screw up in some way after learning that she’s constantly descended and that Makoto will most likely not only be near Ira when shit hits the fan, but that he’d be insane enough to try something like syncing with a goddess so Noah is just taking all that into account. Noah is just using the information she has and the knowledge of others’ personalities to plan ahead. Anyways because of Noah’s scheme, now Makoto has Ira’s Anima which I’m guessing is going to be some kind of power-up.

    Well anybody who ISN’T Makoto could see it coming a mile away that Anna was planning to confess. It is a good thing Ira just straight up told him because he’s too damn dense. Sure Ira is trying to be pragmatic by advising him to lie so it doesn’t affect Anna whose powers have only finally truly awakened because of her feelings for Makoto but I don’t think she has anything to worry about. Anna will probably ignore any rejection or excuse Makoto tries to come up with of why they can’t be together. I mean remember how her and Momo thought Makoto was in denial and just lying out of embarrassment when he previously said he had a fiancee even though he’s a virgin? I’m thinking Makoto will probably try to tell her about his other fiancees in order to reject her confession only for Anna to reject his rejection while giving him a lukewarm gaze.

    And we’re here. Makoto have gods anima, aka, divinity from Ira due to their sync and Noah’s blessing.

    About Bifrons magic, though Noah is pretty suspicious, I think the main culprit is Naia. She’s the one who have her oracle allied with the demons. Though I do think Noah knows that and trying to further her own agenda.

    Anna confession next. Will Makoto accept her?

  23. I got a theory that the RPG Player skill designed with traces of Time and Destiny Magic at it’s core and since RPG games technically have a linear story, it might be that Makoto was supposed to still become the Water hero of Rozes and became a follower of Eir instead in the original timeline, somehow got along with alot of heroines and oracles and shit and travelled back in time to stop the stuff Typhon was having a hand with.

    Then after Noah first knew of him through Makoto defeating Cain instead of befriending him, she deduced the fact that he seems out of place in the time and concluded he was from another time or maybe from the future. This leads us to Noah keeping tabs with the Water Temple, the place where Makoto and the others started, which is near the Great Forest and Makkaren, that I also think is the castle town of Bifrons’ before Makoto drowned the shit out of it, resulting in the lakes and waterways. Also the fact that there’s a place called the Spirit Forest right behind the Water temple seems suspicious to me.

    From there, Noah saw him and schemed to take him away from the Godesses this time and normally didn’t do a lot, until Makoto had that sulky time when he got stuck with 99 and she intervened with his Soul Book, allowing her to tamper with it and could have done something to RPG Player skill, like maybe reading the original script written down on it, which also could be the reason why she was always in panic whenever the stuff about being Eir’s believer was brought up before Eir herself started to also show up in his talks with Noah.

    Well that’s my theory for now, thanks for the Chapter!

    Lets see.

    • Noah shows up in her true form in front on of Makoto. But doesn’t lose his mind. When Noah shows up in chirch every one loses their consciousness/sanity.

    • Noah uses those charm eyes. Still doesn’t work for Makoto.

    Ira and Makoto’s chemistry just keeps increasing. She’s my 2nd favorite girl after Noah in the series. Now she even did a synchro so she might join the harem already.

    I kinda wanted Noel to go for Makoto but her feelings for Sakurai were genuine so i didn’t mind that. Then we got her great ancestor instead. I hope Makoto wouldn’t let Anna go at the end of this arc. Well i think she will follow Makoto back to the future though
