WM – Chapter 279: Hero vs Ancient Dragon King

Because of the effect of Cocytus, the sky, the ground, and the air were dyed in white. 

God Rank Magic changes the world itself. 

No, the world itself would be an exaggeration. 

The effective range of this time’s spell is only the Demonic Continent after all.

(This is at most Quasi-God Rank…) (Makoto)

No matter if I have the Divinity of Ira-sama, in the end, a human can’t replicate the Miracle of a God to perfection. 

A human can’t stand on the same level as a God. 

There’s a disparity that can’t be reached ever. 

I say that, but…it is plenty enough power to defeat a Demon Lord. 

“Anna-san, can you move?” (Makoto)

“…I can somehow fight, Makoto-san.” (Anna)

When I asked this, she properly answered despite looking like she is in pain. 

As expected of the Light Hero. 

She is not like me who uses tricks, she has an actual Demigod Rank.

Her body has already dealt with it. 

Compared to that, the Demon Lords aside from Astaroth shouldn’t be able to move because of Cocytus. 

Shouldn’t have been able to.

“I am feeling the worst.” 

But the owner of that languid voice, Erinyes, flapped her black wings, and was regaining her leisure. 

“The Fallen Angel Eri is originally an archangel of the Divine Realm. She has resistance against Holy God spells. Be careful.” (Ira)

“I see…” (Makoto)

I reached an understanding from the words of Ira-sama.

That’s troubling. 

Not only Astaroth, we even have to deal with Erinyes. 

Can we do this…?

At that moment…

“This voice…could it be the Goddess Trainee, Ira-chan? What are you doing? If you interfere with the Mortal Realm on your own whim, you will get scolded by your scary sisters, you know?” (Erinyes)

Erinyes cut into the conversation of me and Ira-sama. 

Eh, an acquaintance? 

“Hah?! Who are you calling a trainee?! I am the Destiny Goddess!” (Ira)

“Ira-chan is? You entered the slave driving destiny element post of all places? Are you okay? Are you doing your job properly?” (Erinyes)

“S-Shut up! I am exemplary! A capable girl!” (Ira)

“But you were messing up the whole time.” (Erinyes)

“Those were just by chance!” (Ira)

“The Ira-chan that was the number 1 in the amount of filed cleanup papers…” (Erinyes)

“Close your mouth already. I am going to throw you into Tartarus.” (Ira)

“Oh no~, that cute Ira-chan has become a scary Goddess.” (Erinyes)

The serious mood was murdered. 

Anna-san at my back was confused.

“U-Uhm, are those two acquaintances?” (Anna)

“Seems so.” (Makoto)

To think a Demon Lord and a Goddess were old acquaintances. 

What has the world come to.

“When I was an archangel in the Divine Realm, I was also getting lessons as a Goddess Trainee. On top of that, I was looking after Ira-chan. So that Ira-chan that made mistakes the whole time has become the Destiny Goddess, huh.” (Erinyes)

“Shut up, you fallen angel! Are you not embarrassed about becoming a Demon Lord?!” (Ira)

“It is pretty fun, you know? There’s no quotas, and you can laze around the whole day.” (Erinyes)

So there’s quotas in the Divine Realm. 

That doesn’t sound like a dreamland at all. 

“We are talking about Ira-chan here, so I am sure she is shouldering everything and scraping away her own sleeping time, right?” (Erinyes)

“That’s exactly right. I am worried about the overworking of Ira-sama.” (Makoto)

“Takatsuki Makoto?! Don’t go saying unnecessary things!” (Ira)

I am the one worrying about her here, and yet, I was the one that was scolded. 

How unreasonable. 

“How about falling down to the Mortal Realm too, Ira-chan? It is fun.” (Erinyes)

“Enough! Takatsuki Makoto, crush the Demon Lords!” (Ira)

She must have noticed she wouldn’t be able to win the verbal battle, she gives out the order to attack. 

So she says, but I have my hands full with controlling the God Rank Spell Cocytus here. 

There’s no option other than me holding them down → Light Hero Anna-san attacking. 

Anna-san and I looked at each other and were brooding about what to do. 

“How long are you planning on continuing the pointless chatter?” 

A pressuring voice fell from the sky. 

By the time I noticed, there was a gigantic shadow looking down on us. 

Ancient Dragon King, Astaroth.

The strongest Ancient Dragon that has inherited the blood of a Dragon God. 

It is acting as if normal even within the Cocytus.

“Not only my friend Bifrons, but even Goliath has fallen, huh…” (Astaroth)

The Ancient Dragon King’s voice carried the tone of grieving his comrades. 

I heard the Demon Lords don’t get along that well with each other though.

“Don’t think you will be dying a peaceful death, Heroes.” (Astaroth)

“Kuh!” (Anna)

With just a glare from those powerful eyes, Anna-san groaned lightly. 

“Astaroth-sama, could it be that you intend to fight with the Cocytus User upfront?” (Erinyes)

The Fallen Angel King sits at the shoulder of the Ancient Dragon King.

“Are you telling me not to fight?” (Astaroth)

Erinyes was glared at, and she shrugged her shoulders lightly. 

“From what I can see, he can only use this spell one time. Moreover, he is using it while taking out his lifespan. It would be safer to just retreat once and come back to fight him again, you know?” (Erinyes)

“Hooh…” (Astarot)

Astaroth looks down here at the words of Erinyes.

As expected of a Demon Lord.

They are hatefully calm.

I can only use God Rank magic once.

That’s why we must succeed no matter what.

“You think I will let you go?” (Makoto)

Cocytus has already been activated, and Astaroth and Erinyes are in its range. 

This spell is a barrier and a cage.

You can’t get out from inside or enter from outside. 

And the jailer of that Cocytus is the magic user.

The ones that are in the range of the spell will have their freedom taken away, their strength sealed, and can’t go against the jailer. 

And the scariest part of it is that the ones inside the Cocytus are continuously suffering. 

It is a spell to punish sinners after all.

Don’t know if to call it fortunate or unfortunate, but it is taking my all just to activate it, so my hands are full with just the ‘continuous suffering’.

But it should be having an effect.

The Fiend King, the Insect King, and the Beast King can’t even open their mouths.

Ones that have their eyes wide open from fear, ones that are collapsed, ones that are standing spaced out.

Even Demon Lords are in that state. 

This is…a spell of Eir-sama, right?

What a fearsome spell.

Or more like, a scary Goddess.

“Eir-oneesama said ‘I am not killing them outright, so I am kind, right☆?’.” (Ira)

“…Huh, is that so.” (Makoto)

I can easily imagine Eir-sama saying that with a smile.

“The spell of that twisted natured Water Goddess… It is problematic, but it is a saving that it has low instant kill power. However, just by being inside this cage, your strength gets sapped away. I would say that I am currently at a fourth of my usual power.” (Erinyes)

Erinyes who is the only one who is maintaining a leisure attitude had shadows gather around her.

Is that dark magic? 

Being caught by those shadows looks bad. 

“As for me, I would say around half of my strength.” (Astaroth)

Black miasma is gathering and rising around Astaroth.

If it weren’t for the God Rank Spell, I feel like I would collapse just from being hit by that miasma.

This is half of his strength?

He still has mana that surpasses the 5 Demon Lords we were fighting until now. 

This is…the level is just way too different. 

Is there even someone who can actually win in a fair fight?

If it is about winning, the only one would be…

“Althena-sama…please grant me your strength.” (Anna)

I heard a kind voice, and a warm rainbow light envelops both me and Anna-san.

A light filled with affection that covered us as if pushing away the miasma of the Ancient Dragon King.

But the complexion of Anna-san was bad. 

“Anna-san, you used a Sacrificial Technique, didn’t you?” (Makoto)

“I imitated you, Makoto-san… We won’t live out of this if we lose here anyways.” (Anna)

“You got that right.” (Makoto)

She ain’t wrong.

Anna-san and I face the two Demon Lords at our front again.

I don’t want to extend the battle too much.

That must be the same for the other side. 

“Astaroth-sama can I ask you to take the front?” (Erinyes)

“Alright.” (Astaroth)

Astaroth answered Erinyes.

‘What do they plan on doing?’, I didn’t feel like asking that question.

I immediately understood. 

“…Guoooooooooh…” (Astaroth)

At the same time as the low pitched groan of the Ancient Dragon King rang, a massive amount of mana began to condense inside its mouth.

(Dragon Roar…) (Makoto)

The roar of the Ancient Dragon King. 

It won’t only be erasing a mountain here. 

To oppose that…

“[Sword of the Fire Seraph Michael].” (Anna)

A white fire envelops Anna-san.

A rainbow shining blade. 

Mana that surpassed the one of just before was being collected here. 

“Makoto-san, stand behind me.” (Anna)

“Got it.” (Makoto)

I withdraw to the back of Anna-san while maintaining the God Rank spell.

The strongest technique from both teams. 

The earth trembles.

The ground splits, wind rages…

A hellscape as if the world is about to end. 

The miasma gathering around the Ancient Dragon was like a black sun.

In contrast to that, the surroundings of Hero Anna were releasing light like a white sun.

Who would win…?

(She should be able to win…) (Makoto)

The power of the Savior and Light Hero should be absolute. 

Isn’t that right, Ira-sama?

“……O-Of course.” (Ira)

Your voice is trembling.

Could it be that it is really close?

(Noah-sama, Eir-sama, Ira-sama…please lend us your strength.) (Makoto)

I could only pray here. 

Astaroth opened its mouth wide to shoot out its Dragon Roar. 

Anna-san raised the Sword of the Fire Seraph Michael.

At that moment…

“Everyone, please cease this.”

A calm voice that feels out of place resonated.

The black miasma of the Demon Lord and the white light of the Light Hero-san fade away.

“…”

“…”

That thorny atmosphere until now disappears. 

Anna-san made a shocked expression, and even the Ancient Dragon was making a gentle expression.

Only Erinyes was making a bitter face.

“Anna-san.” (Makoto)

“…Makoto-san…just what was I…” (Anna)

Anna-san was making a spaced out face for a second, and then, as if she had come back to her senses, she returned to a serious face.

That expression just now…

Could it be…

I remember it…

But it is impossible.

Even if it was for a second…Anna-san was Charmed.

The Light Hero doesn’t get cursed by anything.

They can completely Negate Abnormal Statuses.

Then why…

I search for the owner of the voice.

I found it soon enough.

I could hear the sound of flapping wings, and a giant living creature landed between us and the Demon Lords. 

At a glance, it looks like a dragon, but it had 3 mouths, 5 arms, 7 wings, and many eyes all around its body; an ugly being. 

“That dragon is…” (Anna)

“A Taboo Dragon.” (Makoto)

I answer shortly at the question of Anna-san. 

The sacrilegious appearance of a Taboo Monster is something that the Great Demon Lord created.

It wouldn’t be strange for one to show itself in the Demonic Continent. 

What bothers me the most is the person that’s riding on the Taboo Dragon.

Long glossy black hair. 

Body proportions that are outstanding even through her black dress.

A beautiful face that charms all the ones who see her. 

She was really similar to the Moon Oracle Furiae-san who I was a Guardian Knight of in the future. 

She looks similar, but they are different people. 

This is the second time I have met her. 

I know her name.

“It has been a while, Hero-sama.” 

The one smiling elegantly from the back of the black dragon is the queen of Laphroaig, Nevia.

    1. Imaginary scenario: Dysfunctional Ira-chan
      Ira’s room
      Makoto’s POV
      Ira summoned me today. Why did she call me ?
      Where is she ? I was looking for her, but I found her very quickly.
      She was laying on a bed with a white negligee. She was sleeping and her face was a bit red. Looks like her work exhausted her.
      Ira: Makoto onii-chan… you… came?
      Makoto: Y-Yes I came.
      Uhm, is it me or she is not in her right mind ? Is it because she just woke up ?
      Ira: Good… come…over…here. I want…you…to sleep… with me.
      She is definitely not in her right mind !
      Makoto: Uhm, Ira, I think it is not good to do that.
      Ira: Why ? Could it be… that you… hate me, onii-chan ?
      Makoto: N-No. I-I love you, Ira.
      Ira: Then…sleep…with me. Or is it.. no good, onii-chan ?
      She asked this with tearful eyes. C-Cute. She is abnormally cute today. I don’t feel like refusing her…
      Makoto: N-No. It is good.
      Ira: Hehehe… come..over here.
      She slapped the spot by her side.
      Makoto: A-Alright.
      I put myself on her bed and she suddenly…hugged me.
      Makoto: I-Ira ?
      Ira: Hehehe… Onii-chan is…so warm. Share me… more of your warmth…
      T-This Goddess…I will say it as many times as it takes, but Ira’s cuteness is peerless.
      Also, her flowery scent tickled my nose and I was a bit excited.
      Not only that, her negligee was very thin, so I could feel her skin against me.
      S-So soft. I feel like I could be hugged all day, but anymore than this could wear out my SAN points.
      C-Clear —
      Ira: Why are you… trying to use… Clear Mind ? Do you…hate… my hugs that much, onii-chan ?
      T-This is bad. She was about to burst into tears.
      Makoto: N-No, you are just too cute, Ira. It was just a reflex. I won’t activate it.
      Ira: Really? Good. Then…give me…headpats.
      Makoto: E-Eh?
      Ira: Give me…headpats.
      Makoto: O-Okay.
      Ira: Hehehe.
      I gave her headpats and she was really happy. Cute. I was petting her for a while and my vision blurred.
      Ira: Goodbye…onii-chan.
      Makoto: Y-Yes.
      That dream really worn out my SAN points.

      Ira’s POV
      AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH.
      Why have I done ? I was really exhausted, so I wasn’t in my right mind. This is why I said things I wouldn’t have said normally.
      B-But why did I ask him to do this !
      Makoto, you dummy ! Why did you not stop me?

      Kuh, I will have my revenge !
      I will pretend to be tired and I will have him take care of me. Then, he will Charmed by my cuteness.
      My plan is perfect (?) !
      Hehehe, Makoto will take of care of me next time. It makes so happy. …
      W-Wait, what am I event thinking ? I-I just want him to steal him away from Noah !
      I-It’s not like I want him to spoil me ! Definitely not !

    1. Dammit, a bit late because of the new series Reigokai-sama is translating. That one is quite interesting, I’ll probably continue to read it after this one.

      Ain’t Astaroth quite broken? This guy is practically a demigod isn’t he? Alex’s serious punch can take out mountains and his roars can do much more than that wtf. Whatever happened to our expectations that this will be an easy fight? And despite demon lords not caring for each other, this one actually does. What a nice guy.

      And Erinyes being close to Ira-chan makes me question if she (she’s a she right) really died. They seem too close for comfort and she might be one of those demon lords who went into hiding after Iblis’s supposed death.

      About Anna though, isn’t she becoming stronger way too fast? She just released a spell using the lifespan and magnifying glass of Makoto on the last 2 chapters and now she’s releasing one which is stronger using only her lifespan? Sheeesh

      Nevia’s appearance is weird. How did she enter? Teleport? But that wouldn’t make sense because she’s on a taboo monster. Anyways, the fight is getting messy! Starting her appearance by stopping Astaroth and Anna, she’s probably at the demon lord level too. Can’t wait to see what she can do next.

      1. Shes a bit higher then a demon lord most likely, remember Makoto’s spell is still in effect and she just casually waltzed in to intervene when the only other 2 that can still move are a former divine being and a demigod

        Nevia can move even in Cocytus. I wonder how she can even do that.

      4. Well…Astaroth probably a demigod. His blood is thick with the blood of the Dragon God. So, that’s the reason why he’s so powerful. Now, add that to his very long lifespan, and you got a formula for the strongest boss (it seems, he was as old as Bifrons).

        The one who baffled me is Nevia. How can she casually step in to Cocytus and stop two demigods whose practically charging their strongest magic? She even charmed Astaroth made him look like a bit gentler. That just absurd!! Isn’t she too OP? I know she had a powerful charm, but to be able to charm an Ancient Dragon God is just off the chart.

      5. Astaroth is at most 100,000 years old. Not quite at the level of Bifrons yet who’s a million years old.

  1. Just to ask Reigokai-sama, is it really Demigod rank? Google and DeepL translate both say it is quasi-God which is quite different from that… And it makes more sense in this context that the best mortals can do is just a quasi version of the God’s spells.

  2. Wait, angels are graduated goddess trainees? What about the baby’s that eat your soul and give it to Eir? Are they day old goddesses? Alex looked like an adult at a few months though? Also, did Erinyes retire her immortality to be a fallen angel demon lord, like what differentiates her from not a fallen angel?

    Like

    1. I think Angels and Goddess are different species. To become a proper God, one might need to become a Goddess trainee first and graduate. Making Angels become Gods would be weird. And it specifically said back then that Angels exist to serve the Holy Gods. Erinyes is an Archangel so she has proper form and can teach Goddess trainees and Eir’s angels are probably low in the rankings.

      1. I don’t really know about this too. Angel was supposedly different from God. They’re by no means the same race. My only guess is since Eri was an Archangel she has an aptitude being a goddess (maybe there’s a ritual that could make a high ranked angel ascended into a goddess? I’m not sure about this), or maybe since Eri only said that “When I was an archangel in the Divine Realm, I was also getting lessons as a Goddess Trainee”, it would mean that to become a goddess trainee and take the lesson you don’t have to be a goddess. She also said that she’s looking after Ira mess

    Wait, how can she even move in Cocytus ? How strange. Moreover, she Charmed Abel and Astaroth. Even if it was only for a moment, she managed to Charm them ?

    1. To be fair we already knew the light hero isn’t 100% immune to the moon oracles charm though it could also have been Sakurai being to weak (I dont remember which), the part that makes me sus is A she not only entered Makoto’s spell but seems to be almost unaffected and B she arrived on a taboo dragon which the author just reminded us is a creation of the great demon lord. I’m starting to think shes actually Ibliss but then why didn’t Ira mention/notice anything in her city, something feels off

      1. However, Furiae could only control Sakurai by touching him, but Nevia could Charm Anna just by her voice. Is it because the Light Hero Skill of Anna is an old version ? Or Nevia is that powerful? I mean, she could even Charm Astaroth.

    2. I think that Nevia started off with the same crazy strong charm as Furiae, but Nevia has deliberately went around using it. She’s not only charmed everyone in that city of hers – but remember that demon village they just visited? Safe to assume, she’s done a huge amount of charming on this continent too. Who knows how many settlement’s she’s in control of? She keeps it on, never releasing them. The result is that she’s strongly leveled her abilities up well beyond Furiae.

  5. So now we know Ira-chan was just as clumsy in the past. How cute. She needs headpats.

    Anyways so Erinyes is a former archangel who used to look after Ira before she fell to the mortal realm and became a Demon Lord. Now she’s trying to go all, “Join the Dark Side. We have cookies.” to Ira. Anyways since she is a former acquaintance of her then she might get spared by Makoto and become one of those Demon Lords that history says just disappeared. I also won’t be surprised if she ends up joining Makoto’s harem and fill the maou/fallen angel role >.>

    Astaroth seems kinda decent since he actually grieves for Bifrons and Goliath even though it’s said that the Demon Lords could never get along.

    Now the Witch of Calamity, Nevia has shown up. She’s probably protected in some way so that she can move unhindered by Makoto’s Cocytus spell. I can only assume it might have to do with being allied with Iblis since that’s what history says and she just came in on a Taboo Dragon which are the byproduct of Iblis’ failed Ascension Ceremonies. Anyways I wonder what she’s here for?

    Lol, I love how the beginning of the chapter is basically Makoto and Erinyes roasting Ira while Astaroth is just patiently waiting for his turn to fight.

  8. I think it’s going to be wild ride to very end of this arc.

    I wonder by whose power Nevia can just ignore Cocytus and charm everyone, but Makoto.
    Eir makes Bug from Tsuki seem like marshmallow.
    Erinyes doesn’t seem to be that bad, just fed up with “holy” gods overall.

    1. Not necessarily the only way.
      1. Setek’s eye based status attack was more effective as a surprise attack.
      2. The charm only worked momentarily, supporting the idea that it was stronger via surprise attack but was able to get cleared up soon after.
      3. Nevia has been using that ability A LOT. Apparently on multiple continents (consider the charmed demon village they just visited). She’s probably the Makoto of charm ability.

      So Anna has a status protection good enough to stop anything a mortal count reasonably do. Normally. I think Nevia’s charm was just momentarily over that threshold.

      It could be that Nia is descended though… but the fact it the charm cleared up makes me think that isn’t so. As good as cheat-level Anna’s resistance is, a god is too much. I think she’d still be charmed if Nia was descended.

  9. I have a feeling Ira’s “clumsiness” is the result of long time manipulation by Noah and naia resulting in the events we now read. Even during her training period(which could probably even be million of years ago?)

    1. She’s most likely the descended goddess. The other Gods don’t know since they can’t observe her. Remember in the future they wanted to imprison furiea because of that reason.

  10. Thanks for the Chapter.
    The people in the last Village were charmed and it was said multiple times that she was the favorite of Iblis, So Nevia was probably there because she just finished to meet Iblis.

    1. She might be Naia. Anna can’t be charmed by a mortal, she is stacked of buffs. So it must be Naia. Also I think taboo monsters are monster from Naia’s world. So that dragon must be very very very strong.

      Now will Naia/Nevia be charmed or will it be a three-way fight.

  11. Well this is getting out of hand. Astaroth was supposed to be still alive even in the present and even the beast king was only supposed to die recently, yet now they’re all firmly in the middle of this mess. If that isn’t enough, Nevia comes along to stir things up even more. What is she trying to accomplish? Does she really think the world will be fine if she just Charms everyone? This can’t end well……..

    Thanks for the translation!

  12. LMAO Ive been reading MTL of this series for the past 6 months because TL is not yet caught up to the official release. And now I see you guys almost caught up. Finally, I can understand somethings I didn’t catch when reading the MTL. Thanks a bunch.

  13. Looks like Nevia is here to try to place peacekeeper for this battle (whether you like it or not). Here’s hoping she’s mostly a third party and not a strict ally to the demon’s side. My current assumption is that her ultimate goal is “peace for the world”.
    Optimistically, she’s probably going to be against the widespread death at the hands of the million demon army. That said, though they started this aggression and the counterattack is fair, she might not let their assault slide either.

    ….Psst. Takki. Quick. While her charm has subdued the Dragon King Demon Lord, hit him with your best shot and put him down while his guard is dropped. You’re the only one who can move freely under a “don’t fight” order from her. Take the one guy Anna can’t handle out and let’s bet it all on her, yeah?

    Erinyes’s conversation was fun though. She had a point against Ira. I…guess it only makes sense that the destiny magic goddess would be the one with the most work to mind, huh? Really, I think the biggest takeaway here is that goddesses can give up/lose their status and fall to the mortal realm. Maybe one day she and Takki can fool around face to face.
