WM – Chapter 281: Takatsuki Makoto arrives at the Demonic Capital

“Go ahead, enjoy your time. I will come pick you up tomorrow at around noon.” (Nevia)

We were guided to a high class-looking inn, and Queen Nevia left. 

The big city of the Demonic Continent, Rease.

The residences of the many demons reached far and wide here.

The biggest trait of this place is that there’s no ramparts.

It goes without saying with the cities of the future, but even Laphroaig had ramparts. 

But this city doesn’t have any. 

Meaning that they don’t fear attacks from the outside. 

The inside of the inn has extravagant furniture, and the demons guiding us were polite. 

There’s no one other than us staying here.

Looks like the place has been reserved for us. 

I was wary of enemy attacks for a while, but nothing happened at all.

A relaxed mood eventually came. 

Just that, it is a waste of time to just wait. 

“What should we do tomorrow?” (Makoto)

I look around and ask everyone. 

Queen Nevia apparently will be having us meet the Great Demon Lord Iblis. 

It is 100% a trap.

“Let’s run! Master Makoto-sama!” (Momo)

The opinion of Momo was a natural one.

We can leave the Demonic Continent now. 

“But isn’t this a chance to defeat the Great Demon Lord? We can retreat anytime.” (Johnny)

Johnny-san made sense too.

Our objective is to defeat the Demon Lord. 

Our final objective is going through the trouble of meeting us. 

Is it really okay to let such a chance just go?

“What in the world is the objective of the enemy? The aim of the Demon Lords was originally to…’kill the Light Hero’ which is me, right?” (Anna)

Anna-san looks at me uneasy. 

It is true that right when I came to the past, the demon lord army and the demons were persistently on the prowl for the Light Hero. 

In other words, if they are aiming for something, it would be her. 

“I don’t think there’s the need to think too deeply about it. It is most likely an invitation.” (Mel)

Contrary to us who were seriously pondering about this, Mel-san had a tone as if saying ‘stop stating the obvious’.

“Invitation? For what?” (Makoto)

When I asked, the White Dragon-san said as if it were obvious.

“The one who defeated the Demon Lord Bifrons that ruled the West Continent…will be asked ‘would you want to become the new Demon Lord of the West Continent?’; that kind of invitation.” (Mel)

“I won’t become a Demon Lord!” (Anna)

“That’s not it, Hero-kun.” (Mel)

“Eh?” (Anna)

Anna-san was fuming, and the White Dragon-san stopped her with her hand. 

And then she pointed straight at me.

“Spirit User-kun, you will most likely be invited to become a Demon Lord.” (Mel)

The eyes of the White Dragon-san were looking straight at me. 


“Why? Anna-san was the one who defeated Bifrons.” (Makoto)

“You are the one who contributed to that, Spirit User-kun. Moreover, a user of God Rank Magic. They must want to bring you in their side instead of as an enemy. Also, the Great Demon Lord increasing the Demon Lords isn’t a strange occurrence. The recent one would be the black knight Demon Lord.” (Mel)

I could hear the grinding of teeth from my back.

Black Knight Cain…

An Apostle that follows Noah-sama just like me, and the killer of Anna-san’s master. 

Right, he was a new Demon Lord.

“Geez, White Dragon Master! There’s no way Master Makoto-sama would become the new Demon Lor—” (Momo)

“If the Spirit User-kun becomes the new Demon Lord that rules the West Continent, peace will come. The people in Laberintos will also be able to live in safety.” (Mel)

“…T-That’s…” (Momo)

Momo opened her eyes wide and fell silent. 

“It might be a good proposal contrary to expectations.” (Johnny)

“Johnny-san?!” (Anna)

Anna-san glared at the handsome long haired elf as if she couldn’t believe it. 

“Even if he were to become a Demon Lord, he could aim to lower their guard by becoming an ally and defeat the Great Demon Lord with a sneak attack. How’s that, Makoto-dono?” (Johnny)

“Sneak attack, huh…” (Makoto)

“It is a proper tactic in war, right?” (Johnny)

“You are one bad guy too, aren’t you, Johnny-san.” (Makoto)

I give a wry smile. 

That…unexpectedly doesn’t sound too bad. 

If not for Anna-san who is glaring at us from the back.

“Ira-sama, what do you think?” (Makoto)

I ask the Goddess-sama who has been silent until now. 

The other 3 shouldn’t be able to hear Ira-sama, but they all fell silent. 

(I can’t see the Fate Thread that is involved with the Great Demon Lord. My Clairvoyance is blocked by them being an Apostle of a Devil God after all…) (Ira)

So she can’t tell, huh.

This is something I have heard of before. 

(But it is as Johnny-chan says. I think it is a chance. Also, in the off-chance something happens, you still have my Divinity in you, so you should be able to manage to run away at the very least.) (Ira)

I see.

The other day I didn’t fully activate the God Rank Spell, Cocytus. 

Because I ended it prematurely in an incomplete state, there’s still a bit of Divinity in me. 

“Then, can’t we defeat the Great Demon Lord?” (Makoto)

(It would be great if you could…but the Great Demon Lord most likely knows that you have Divinity in you, Takatsuki Makoto. I don’t think they are without a plan.) (Ira)

“This is troubling.” (Makoto)

(Indeed.) (Ira)

I could hear a languid ‘fuuh’ sigh.

“In the end, is Ira-sama in favor or against meeting the Great Demon Lord?” (Makoto)


“Ira-sama?” (Makoto)

(…I do think it is a chance to defeat the Great Demon Lord.) (Ira)

It is a rare vague response. 

Is she worried about something?

“Oi, Spirit User-kun, what did the Goddess-sama say?” (Mel)

The White Dragon-san must have run out of patience with me mumbling by myself, she questioned me. 

“She said that since we got the chance, it should be fine to meet the Great Demon Lord. If something happens, we can escape even if it means using the Divinity.” (Makoto)

“I see.” (Johnny)

“Uuh…I am scared.” (Momo)

“If it is the words of the Goddess-sama, I will obey.” (Mel)

Johnny-san, Momo, and the White Dragon-san agreed. 

“Makoto-san…” (Anna)

And Anna-san, who was making the most serious face here, grabbed my arm.

“What is it, Anna-san?” (Makoto)

“You won’t become a Demon Lord, right, Makoto-san?” (Anna)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

And here I was wondering what she would ask with such a serious mood. 

I am sure that if I had a mirror, I would be seeing my dumbfounded face there.

“Of course I won’t.” (Makoto)

Anna-san was relieved from the bottom of her heart at my response. 

“Really? What a waste.” (Johnny)

It seems Johnny-san wanted me to become a Demon Lord.

Well, I do agree with the idea of gaining peace for the West Continent without fighting.


“I am a human, so even if I were to become a Demon Lord, there would only be around 100 years of peace at most. When that happens, what will be of the West Continent’s Demon Lord?” (Makoto)

“In the first place, the Immortal King Bifrons has not perished completely. He lost most of his power thanks to the attack of the Light Hero-kun, but I think he will revive after 1,000 years. They must want to make the Spirit User-kun a Demon Lord for the time being till that time comes.” (Mel)

The Immortal King that I thought was defeated by Anna-san, the White Dragon-san says will be resurrecting in the future.

Well, I did see with my own eyes how he resurrected.

I won’t doubt that.

“Then, we will finally be fighting the Great Demon Lord tomorrow. Is that okay?” (Makoto)

I looked at everyone, and they nodded lightly. 

“Fumu…then, we have decided the route we will be taking.” (Johnny)

Johnny-san said this, but he placed his katana on his waist and wore his cloak.

“Are you going somewhere?” (Makoto)

“Yeah, this is my first city. I want to look around.” (Johnny)

“A-Are you serious?!” (Momo)

“It is a demon city, you know?!” (Anna)

Momo and Anna-san shout in surprise. 

“Makoto-dono, the demons of this city can’t attack us because of the curse of Queen Nevia, right?” (Johnny)

(No doubt!) (Ira)

The voice of the Goddess resonates in my head.

“Yes, Ira-sama says so.” (Makoto)

“Then there’s no problem.” (Johnny)

Saying this, Johnny-san left. 

He’s got guts. 

Anna-san and Momo don’t seem to have any intentions of going out, they were sitting on the bed or looking outside the window.

(But it is true that waiting around is boring.) (Makoto)

I was thinking about training, but Mel-san spoke to me as if finding it hard to say. 

“Hey, Spirit User-kun, do you have some time?” (Mel)

“As you can see, I have time to spare.” (Makoto)

I would just be waiting in the inn till tomorrow noon. 

“There’s a place I want you to accompany me to.” (Mel)

“I am fine with that, but where?” (Makoto)

I can’t reject the request of the White Dragon-san that has been helping us uncountable times. 

But wonder where.

“I will go too.” (Anna)

“Me too, White Dragon Master!” (Momo)

Anna-san and Momo also requested to go, but the White Dragon-san shook her head to the sides.

“It is a bit of a dangerous…no, it is not dangerous, but I can’t bring you two there… Sorry. I won’t take that long, so I want to borrow the Spirit User-kun for a bit.” (Mel)

“…Understood.” (Anna)

“Eeh~. We are staying at home then?” (Momo)

Anna-san was slightly displeased by this, but Momo was pretty displeased by it. 

As for me, it was bothering me quite a lot that she at first was going to say it was dangerous.

Where am I going to be taken to?

We left Anna-san and Momo, and I went out with the White Dragon-san.


“We are walking there, huh.” (Makoto)

“It is close to the inn after all.” (Mel)

I thought for sure we would be going by riding on her, but we are heading there on foot.

We leisurely walk the main street of the demon capital. 

There were a variety of demons in the street, and it was prosperous.

There were many street stalls, and they were trying to pull customers endlessly. 

A really lively city. 

However, what bothered me was…

“Everyone is Charmed.” (Makoto)

“Yeah, the residents don’t seem to be bothered by this though.” (Mel)

Is this all the doing of the Moon Queen?

If that’s the case, that’s quite the feat. 

“There’s a lot of people.” (Mel)

The White Dragon-san mutters. 

“Yeah, there are.” (Makoto)

“There’s way too many people in comparison to the buildings. Does everyone live in this city?” (Mel)

It is true that there’s also a lot of houses, but it is far more crowded than that. 

“They might have come to make an earning here.” (Makoto)

“Right. Also…there’s a lot of ghosts and undead.” (Mel)

“True.” (Makoto)

From the passing demons, there’s a lot of undead like ghosts that have transparent bodies, zombies, and skeletons.

Also, they are not armed, so even when they walk closeby, it doesn’t bother me that much.

On our way they tried to pull us into the stores, but we didn’t get distracted anywhere and continued on. 

We walked for a while, and the White Dragon-san stopped in front of a gigantic residence. 

Isn’t this bigger than the Highland Castle?

I can imagine an influential person is living here. 

The gate was as gigantic as the residence. 

At the very least, it is a size that a human wouldn’t even be able to open.

However, the reason for the gigantic size of that gate was clear.


Seeing the White Dragon-san, the gatekeeper dragon opened the gate. 

The owner of this residence might be a dragon.

If that’s the case, it would make sense why the residence and the gate are gigantic.

“Let’s go, Spirit User-kun.” (Mel)

“Okay…” (Makoto)

A rude gaze was directed at me by the gatekeeper dragon.

“Uhm…White Dragon-san, can you please tell me your objective for having us come here already…?” (Makoto)

“We have come to meet Astaroth.” (Mel)


When I saw the gatekeeper dragon, I had a bad feeling.

“Uhm…why meet the strongest Demon Lord?” (Makoto)

“They told me to come meet them later. You heard that too, right, Spirit User-kun?” (Mel)

“I did, but…why even me?” (Makoto)

“I am lending you all my help because I lost to you in Laberintos. Ancient Dragons obey the stronger one. The fastest way to explain this would be for you to be there as well.” (Mel)

“We are talking about a Demon Lord here, you know? Will it end with a talk?” (Makoto)

“They are an acquaintance of mine. Also, they shouldn’t be able to attack us with the curse of Queen Nevia.” (Mel)

Mel-san is an Ancient Dragon, so of course she would be acquainted with the Ancient Dragon King. 

I know that, but…

“Isn’t there a chance the effects of the curse doesn’t work on Astaroth who has inherited the blood of a Dragon God?” (Makoto)

“I am impressed you know that.” (Mel)

“Ira-sama told me.” (Makoto)

“Don’t worry. I am sure it will be okay. Now, let’s go. I couldn’t bring myself to come here alone, you see.” (Mel)

In other words, she was scared, so she wanted me to come with her.

“…I see.” (Makoto)

I honestly want to leave. 

But this is not an atmosphere where I can leave.

A big door, that even a giant would easily be able to cross, opened. 

The White Dragon-san advanced rapidly. 

I hesitantly followed behind her. 


A heavy sound rang as the door behind us closed. 

Now we can’t run away.

“What’s the matter, Spirit User-kun?” (Mel)

“I am scared here.” (Makoto)

“Fuh! So there’s things that scare even you, huh.” (Mel)

The White Dragon-san laughed as if she were looking at something amusing. 

What do you think I am?

We have come so far already, so no choice but to tread on. 

Clear Mind Skill 99%…

I steel myself and go up the stairs. 

I cross the door, and there is a hall-like gigantic room.

And right in front of us is…

A throne.

There was a man dressed in black clothing sitting there.

Isn’t he over 3 meters tall?

It is not as big as a giant, but his body is impossibly big for a human. 

Sharp eyes were looking down at us. 

“That’s…” (Makoto)

“The Ancient Dragon King.” (Mel)

The White Dragon-san answered my mutter.

His appearance is different, but the miasma coming out from him was certainly that of the Demon Lord that had overpowered us. 

He must be taking a humanoid form like the White Dragon-san.

On the way to the throne there’s a carpet that’s red like blood, and we were slowly advancing on top of that. 

There’s big warriors lined up on both sides.

I could see faint scale-like patterns on their skin.

They must be dragons too.

We approached the Ancient Dragon King till we were about a few meters from him.

Silence ruled the place for a while.

(Say something, White Dragon-san!) (Makoto)

I glanced at her profile, but she was unexpectedly nervous and her face was stiffened.

The one who spoke was the Ancient Dragon King.

“Glad to see you came, my daughter, Helemerck.” (Astaroth)

“…It has been a while, Father.” (Mel)

The White Dragon-san responded reluctantly. 

I heard about this from Ira-sama beforehand, so I knew about their relationship.

Even so, it still made me think…

The Holy Dragon-sama, Helemerck-san…I am impressed she even became the party member of Savior Abel.

    1. “(…I do think it is a chance to defeat the Great Demon Lord.) (Ira)
      It is a rare vague response.
      Is she worried about something?”
      If Ira is worried about something, it will fail. In fact, whether she is confident or worried, she will always fail anyways.

      ““You won’t become a Demon Lord, right, Makoto-san?” (Anna)
      “Eh?” (Makoto)
      And here I was wondering what she would ask with such a serious mood.
      I am sure that if I had a mirror, I would be seeing my dumbfounded face there.
      “Of course I won’t.” (Makoto)”
      Isn’t that a flag ?

      ““Everyone is Charmed.” (Makoto)
      “Yeah, the residents don’t seem to be bothered by this though.” (Mel)
      Is this all the doing of the Moon Queen?”
      Okay, Nevia even Charmed the residents of the city. What is actually her goal ? Moreover, what is Iblis planning to do with Charming the Demons.

      ““Glad to see you came, my daughter, Helemerck.” (Astaroth)
      “…It has been a while, Father.” (Mel)”
      Is it me or it looks like a daughter who is bringing her lover at home in order to meet her father. In other words, a father-in-law and a son-in-law meeting ? Also, Astaroth isn’t a loli dragon, huh. What a shame.

      At the end, even an Ancient Dragon King is just a bigger swallow, so Makoto shouldn’t worry about him.

      1. Yeah, ( father in law vs son in law) i was thinking the same, considering mel personality and makoto. If that’s really ganna happen then this really funny 😂

          1. 😂 😂 Bruh! Your bad but I like it

            Men of culture.😏

            Don’t worry I got you covered.

      2. *(Imaginary) In the next episode of the Weakest Virgin Chad Mage

        Makoto: Hey Astaroth, give your daughter to me

        Helemerck: Wha!? *blush

        Astaroth: You insolent brat. How you dare want to take my daughter from me. Did you really think that I will say “Yes” and let you go easily?

        Makoto: I had the feeling you say that. Of course, I won’t back down even if my opponent is you. I’ll make her mine!

        Helemerck: W-w-what are you just saying right now?! *More blushing

        Astaroth: Hmph, if you really want her then you have to prove to me that you’re worthy for her and make me submit to you

        Makoto: Bring it on!

      3. Which is greater, Makotos denseness or Ira’s ability for failure?
        What I’m worried about though is whether nevia actually ends up being the great demon lord. it would certainly exlain why every one is charmed and why she could easily move in cocytus. regardless, I’m hoping that makoto somehow manages to make the GDL fall for him assuming they are a woman.

        1. I actually didn’t read it until I got back because it was raining bad.
          There was actually an accident ahead of me and that was what was causing the traffic jam.
          Usually I would have taken me 35-40 minutes to get home but this time it took me three times as much.
          I’m sure the police and paramedics had it really bad really bad working under the rain for hours.
          I did however play some audiobooks while I was waiting.

      1. It did indeed seemed a bit amiss, as you seem a responsible person!
        Thanks for the story and yess, working under the rain sucks…
        By the way, it seems you have a big stock of audio books? Nice!

    1. “You won’t become a Demon Lord, right, Makoto-san?” (Anna)

      I think this line is a flag (reference to chapter1 if I remember correctly, he a favourite game where a hero becomes a demon lord). And how insane and broken he is, the probability of him doing it is 200%

        1. Yeah, I suddenly remembered chapter 1 when I read this line.

          My reasoning when I say flag, was Cause in Fire County Arc, were Aya was evolving He needs a mana crystal/stone because of her skill evolution (if remember it correctly) there a POv there where Noah Eir and makoto was talking on how to evolve(pokemon lol 😂) Aya. Anyway fast forward. Makoto was thinking of absorbing or evolve the mana crystal of bifrons for power up. When he learned that if he absorb it he become a demon lord.( correct if wrong, if the details is quite lacking causebyou know it’s quite long time). then Here’s comes the chapter 1 Intro of his favourite genre game. Coincidence.. No.. In this chapter this the third time ( i think) for me thou.

          Anyway in conclusion This foreshadow + his insanity + gaming mind + don’t care of the rules by the holy gods = probability of 501% of him becoming a demonlord 😂😂.

    2. “Glad to see you came, my daughter, Helemerck.” (Astaroth)
      “…It has been a while, Father.” (Mel)

      What an epic plpt twist😂😂, I didn’t see coming 😂😂

    1. “Glad to see you came, my daughter, Helemerck.” (Astaroth)

      “…It has been a while, Father.” (Mel)

      That’s kinda unexpected but plausible in so many ways of you think about it in the first place.

    1. Seems likely. Or something like Makoto being her guardian, so suitors would have to be able to defeat Makoto.

  1. “Anna-san was slightly displeased by this, but Momo was pretty displeased by it. ”

    Lol, Momo just 1-ups Anna.
    Thank you for chapter

  2. First impression about the town, i think its brings back my memories of “Spirited Away” from Studio Ghibli.
    For astaroth and mel, my RPG sense that this talk would redirect to “marriage” and not “master slave system”

    1. This situation is highly suspicious. I get the serious impression that he’s there as a prospective son in law or something else close to it.

  3. Another day another thank you kami-sama. Thank you senator angels.

    Wake waku. Waku waku. Expectations ringing for this arc. Prolly after this arc I’ll leave it be awhile while hoping it doesn’t get dropped, axed, or boring.

  4. Now, Helemerk will tell his father that he will become Makoto’s Wife,,, lol
    Additional harem member, female ancient dragon, GET!!

  5. Dragon Papa-in-law meet!

    Do we see a clichè that dragon king-sama was actually a doting father but couldn’t really show it in public. Like he’s strict to Mel due to his love but she suddenly run away due to her misunderstanding the he hates her. Might’ve been a reason for him to join the demons since the heroes may misunderstand as him invading the human continent as a tyrannical dragon and attack him even though he was just going to search for his daughter that run away from home for a thousand years.

  6. what!? i’ve been thinking if the dragon king wanted Mel to be his wife, but why i never thought that mel is his daughter instead! XD
    “so you make my daughter to follow you huh? is there anything you want to say?”
    what must i say in this kind of situation?
    “um… pls give me your daughter?”
    holy shiet, make this happen pls XD

  7. So…

    “Fumu, you have chosen a great person.”
    “So spirit user would you marry my daugher?”

    “Would you marry Mel?”

    -here makoto thinks
    -mel is nervous since she doesnt grasp the situation and now makoto is thinking if she is worthy as a lover.

    “Isn’t it impossible for a human and a dragon to have a child?”
    “Nonsense! Can’t you see how beautiful my daughter is? She can stay human forever if you want to.”
    “But my life is short.”
    “Then make her time with the most memorable.” (Or you know, become a god. Cuz you are heading there.)

    “Then I will take Helemerck as my Lover.”

    “Fumu, good answer! Tonight we celebrate! Gahahaha!”

    On another note, that city sounds like Taloshiem. Monsters and the dead roaming around all “charmed” living like normal people.

    The difference in the charms is that one is forceful the other just sees you more positively.
    So Death-mage’s charm is much much much better.

    Theory Naia is Nevia and Furiae just with different memories. They all have “ia” in their names.

  8. Wow Anna is really not biting on the peaceful negotiation route. Makes sense. I would think Momo would be even more against it, what with her parents fates. It would be expedient for Makoto if he could negotiate with Iblis and get her to play dead for a thousand year cease-fire.

  9. While I expected her to be related to him in some way I did not think she was his daughter, and now with everyone talking about father in law I also cant see this going anywhere but straight into that territory lol. Even the demons in the Capitol are charmed, I feel more and more that Nevia is actually Ibliss in disguise.

  10. Thanks for the chapter!
    So Mel is the Dragon King daughter… she is a Dragon princesses then!
    And now I understand the bad look Makoto receive at the gates: everybody thinks he stole her!
    I guess Astaroth too?
    Doting father incoming!

  11. Well Makoto probably did briefly entertain the idea about becoming a Demon Lord. After all his favorite ending of an RPG was where the Hero becomes the Demon Lord. However he’s aware enough that since he’s human, he’d only buy the Western Continent 100 years of peace if he became a Demon Lord and ruled the continent. Sure he could just agree and wait a while for everyone to lower their guards before doing a sneak attack but didn’t Ira mention before that the Divinity would eventually dissipate over time anyways so he’d lose his ability to cast Cocytus on Iblis if he waits?

    Anyways so now Johnny’s off to go explore the city. He’s probably just going out to find hot demon girls to hit on >.>

    Now Mel wants to have Makoto go with her to visit someplace. Meanwhile everyone they pass by in the city is Charmed. It sorta feels like Talosheim from Death Mage not to mention that this city is also full of undead and ghosts like Talosheim. The difference is that the Guidance in Death Mage is portrayed in a more benevolent light and here we got no idea why Nevia is Charming everyone.

    So Mel’s destination is Astaroth’s home. Also Astaroth is a man. No dragon loli then. That’s a shame. Well we can always hope Iblis is a loli instead. Anyways so Astaroth is Mel’s father? Suddenly this feels like when the daughter brings home her boyfriend to introduce him to her father. I’m expecting Makoto to unintentionally ask Astaroth to give him his daughter or say he has already received his daughter. On Astaroth’s part, I’m expecting him to be a super doting father and try to forbid Mel being with Makoto. Meanwhile Mel will probably be blushing the entire time because she didn’t actually bring Makoto to meet Astaroth for that reason but not deny what her dad thinks is happening.

  12. Well.
    This is awkward.
    Is this gonna be a serious conversation, or something more along the lines of daddy evaluating Mel’s potential husband? Or rather…doesn’t this make her a dragon princess? I wonder if dropping the fact that Cain would’ve slaughtered all the other ancient dragons would mean anything to him?

    I’m surprised Takki turned down the Demon Lord route so easily. There were pros and cons to weigh, but there doesn’t seem to be many strings attached. At most, Anna doesn’t want it, but…like…they should really talk about this. Iblis…is going to be an interesting character. Possibly unexpectedly reasonable, or possibly insane. Much like Nevia, actually. At the very least, they’ll appreciate being able to talk to someone who won’t go insane.

    What I’d really like is a private conversation with Furiae’s senpai. She’s going hard on the charm, and I’m wondering if she realizes what the consequences of all this is. I guess….at the very least, she’ll appreciate being able to talk to someone without them becoming a hardcore simp.

  13. Anyone have this uneasy feeling that all Demon Lords refer GDL as ” That Personage. ” Not as Lord Iblis explicitly. Is this author foreshadowing something about the actual person who is Great Demon Lord, is someone we as reader knew all along….. Naahhhhh, I just need some sleep

  14. I like it that this story is in the harem genre, but i find it not annoying, strange?! I usually not the type that like novels that is in this tag. But this one is strangely manage to make me stay, as the relationship or the drama is not that exaggerated. Anyway, thank you for translating this one. I really enjoy reading it so far.

  15. Thanks for the Chapter (´-﹏-`)
    Is it possibly a marriage proposal chapter in the next chapter?! Makoto you gigolo!

    Not that I’m complaining tho I’m rather happy lol

  16. A few thoughts:
    1. What if Nevia foresees the defeat of Iblis and is trying to maintain balance by preserving a greater portion of the Demon forces? She is also changing sides to prevent the destruction of her city. Her goal is coexistence, not defeat. The trap could be for Iblis.
    2. Someone broke the law by going back in time to defeat Abel. Like a cop speeding after a speeder, Makoto is breaking regulations left and right.
    3. Has it been revealed who went back in time of sent information back in time to defeat Abel in the past? No one showed up or was mentioned in the battle against Bifrons.

  17. Thanks for the chapter. Really sad that we’re catching up with the raws. Looking forward to how this arc will end and what’s gonna happen when Makoto returns back to his timeline.

  18. “I heard about this from Ira-sama beforehand, so I knew about their relationship.

    Even so, it still made me think…

    The Holy Dragon-sama, Helemerck-san…I am impressed she even became the party member of Savior Abel.”

    Well, you threatened to kill her entire family …… difficult to refuse in that situation.

  19. Wow. I thought with the way the interacted, Mel wasn’t going to join the harem after all. But now here she is bringing him to meet her father. Bringing a man home to meet the dad is usually only interpreted one way in japan. A run in with a scary father-in-law is a must for a harem protagonist too. Well, do your best Makoto~

    Thanks for the translation!

  20. thanks for chap
    mc’s last line was shocking again lol,so despite all this she still followed abel huh?

    1. astaroth lived for 100000+ years and helmereck hasnt even passed the 10000 mark yet. plus the dragon god blood must have thinned down.

  21. I don’t know if this has been mentioned in the scrubbed comments but this is most likely when Johnny’s devilkin line was conceived lol. He was getting jiggy with a devilkin woman whose lineage will lead to Lucy.

  22. Come on MC, how could he not even get to the conclusion that Mel was taking him to Astaroth… and asking who the person on the Throne was, like seriously… this MC is sometimes dumber than anything in the world and denser than any element in the universe…

  23. “Makoto-san…” (Anna)

    And Anna-san, who was making the most serious face here, grabbed my arm.

    “What is it, Anna-san?” (Makoto)

    “You won’t become a Demon Lord, right, Makoto-san?” (Anna)

    “Eh?” (Makoto)

    And here I was wondering what she would ask with such a serious mood.
    I am sure that if I had a mirror, I would be seeing my dumbfounded face there.

    “Of course I won’t.” (Makoto)


    yup, said the person whose in chapter 1 clearly said, “the ending that i love the most is where the hero choose to become demon lord.”

    i still believe that lines is an event flag foreshadowing.

    321 chapters, nothing happened so far but…. yeah the flag keep showing up.

  24. I would love if this somehow ended in him having to marry her, mostly because I want him to have a dragon woman, and perhaps more inportantly I want the older type more than Lucy and Aya for sure. Momo is old, but she is a loli, and I don’t care about those if there can be a older sister type. Well, she is a motherish type, but that is good as well. I don’t think that will be so though. This damn virgin can’t do shit after all^^

  25. I agree with @somebody97 that Makoto should have just said “Hello father in law…” and cut to the chase…lol

  26. Wait wait hmm… When Great Sage from the future said that Johnny put his hands on every woman aside her and Anna… is this meant that Helemerck too? Also there was this Wood Hero who had dragon-like features… I see so Johnny was some kind of brave hero too
