Hey guys, Reigokai here!
It has been a while already, but some people are probably already aware… We are almost catching up with the raws of Weakest Mage.
What does that mean? Obviously, a new journey!
There were some sly ones who picked up on this and gave a few recommendations of their own.
Well, this time around, I read a whole lot of stories beforehand and have already decided on one.
The story I have decided to translate is…
—The Darkness was Comfortable for me—!
I am not the best at pitching out a story, and I would like to avoid giving too much information, so I would like to point out the strongest points of this story in my opinion.
The Main Character’s growth is really great to watch, his gradual opening up with the people around him, and most of all this is a story where the MC’s actions are broadcasted to all the people on Earth, so it gives a different type of flavor while providing what’s my favorite part of the story which is the forum discussions, or Bulletin Boards.
It starts like a dark fantasy, but I wouldn’t really call it one.
For the ones wondering if it is a harem or not, I can’t tell for certain. Most are, and I think this one will be as well. Don’t take my word for granted though as I don’t really mind whichever way it rolls.
Btw, there’s already a translation with 5 chapters, so if you want to check the first few chapters, you can go ahead. Just a heads up; there are several parts that are mistranslated. This is not me insulting anyone here, this story is pretty difficult to translate. Especially the Bulletin Board that has a lot of netspeak. So if possible, I would like you all to read my translation of it as well, even if you do intend to read those 5 chapters ahead of time since you might miss some details.
I myself will be translating everything from the very beginning, even the synopsis. I do prefer doing it this way.
So, I will leave the synopsis here, but if you don’t want to be “spoiled” for the first 4 chapters, maybe hold off on reading the synopsis a bit till you get there?
“I will have the 1,000 people I have chosen go to a parallel world.”
Chaos spread once those words of God were displayed to the whole world.
Kurose Hikaru, whose childhood friend had been chosen, was killed together with her on the same day she was supposed to be transferred. However, for some reason, Hikaru didn’t die and, even though he wasn’t chosen at first, he ended up as one of the [Otherworlders that will have all their actions live broadcasted to Earth].
Transferred without any preparations at all to that accursed land, he faced threats innumerable times and somehow managed to survive with his Gift, the Dark Spirit Abilities.
“I must not die. I am sure the people on Earth are all rooting for me after all…”
This is the story of a young boy who is tossed about by the gazes of the viewers, yet eventually manages to raise his head and walk forward.
And there it is! A new journey ahead of us!
I really would like to thank all the great support, patreons, and comments! Seeing this community grow over the years really does put a smile on my face.
I will be releasing one chapter every day for the first 4 chapters!
Hope to see you in the next Isekai!

Lol, we all fell for it.
Damn it !
Fast reflexes. How did you not fail?
I actually read the title 😂
So do I. But in pursuit of glory this time after weeks of wordpress notifs not working, I forgot 😅
I’m more than happy enough that you have chosen a new novel to translate, knowing you and your previous choices I’m pretty sure it’s going to be awesome.
I was actually thinking that maybe you would translate the extra stories of tsuki ga michibiku but you will hear no complaints from me.
Same here, I’m sure this will be another story to enjoy. Just that I’m a little disappointed that the Makoto protagonist name just got combo break lol.
Waw new journey eh, sounds cool!
Thanks for the non-chapter
Somehow I managed to be an early gang here haha. Looking forward towarda the new project
Thanks for the new journey?

TY for everything
Thank you Reigokai-sama
Interesting synopsis. I’m looking forward to this one
And i wanted to recommend too lol 🙁
sounds like those korean modern fantasies like Omniscient Reader where the gods put people through some weird death games and give them powers for funsies
MC is not named Makoto. Do Not Want.
In all seriousness though, it does looks interesting.
Thank you very much for… This? I guess…
Por cierto lo que quise decir es que no tengo ni la menor idea de cómo llamarle, ok?
Looking forward to it, but not so much losing my fix of zero believers goddess… Oh well, what can you do? I trust you can do a good job picking a story.
Thanks for everything!
OMG! The protagonist isn’t a Makoto?! The world is ending!
Awwwww…. i will miss Noah
Thanks for the heads up. I look forward to the journey ahead but please try to balance out between all three of them. Thanks again
Looks interesting! thanks for picking it up
I can’t begin it because of don’t know if there are poligamy, so I will wait until it’s confirmed to begin it, I hope it is.
Looks shit but… Buehehehehehe…. 😏😏😏😏
Aw i wanted another makoto! Oh well….
All jokes aside, i’m getting aboard this train, lets hv a great time, people!
Bruh that God jsut want to throw all his responsibilities on lessers.
In the end they were just suggestions. We trust your judgement kami-sama

I’ve enjoyed every single novel you’ve translated so far and I’m sure this will be another gem, thanks as always Reigokai!
Rip not makoto as mc anymore
Thanks uhm for the new chapter? Sad to say that we’re not gonna see our airhead gigolo and for a few months or maybe years. Looking forward to your new project and here’s hoping that this is a harem ahahah. Cheers!!
In for the new ride…and the lonely hearts fumbling for first comments.
mmm new [email protected] … i say isekai
It looks interesting, although I feel that nothing could surpass “The Weakest Magician” his development is magnificent.
But we’ll see.
The whole spectator idea sounds kinda haHAA but a translator should always translate whatever they want to, so good luck with it.
Looks interesting!! Definitely gonna read this
ay lets go exited for the new journey. we really can’t say enough how much we appreciate what you do here
Well it seem, its time to renew my interdimensional passport, see you guys on hte other side.
Does this have manga or ln to see illustrations?
It will soon have. The LN has been announced already.
Thanks for this new adventure!
