WM – Chapter 283: Takatsuki Makoto tells everything

“Aah, that was tiring.” (Makoto)

I left the castle of Astaroth alone.

Mel-san is apparently going to be staying. 

It seems there’s still some issues between parent and child, but it has been a while since they have met, so they must have things they want to talk about. 

I would like them to get along with each other after this.

If possible, I wouldn’t want to have the Ancient Dragon King as an enemy at this current point in time.

I did promise to eventually fight him though.

I leisurely walk through this demonic metropolis that’s bustling with many demons. 

I know my way back to the inn thanks to [Mapping].

It was a bit scary when we just arrived, but walking the street like this, I felt like taking a bit of a walk.

(You… You are going to be fighting the Great Demon Lord tomorrow, you know? Take a rest.) (Ira)

Ira-sama spoke to me. 

It is just as she says, but there was something bothering me. 

Ira-sama, why is the Demonic Continent this peaceful?

In this city, and even in the village of before, we were not attacked. 

(That’s because…that Calamity Witch has Charmed them.) (Ira)

I understand that. 

That’s why I couldn’t help but think this way. 

—Won’t there be world peace if all the people were to be Charmed like this?

(T-That’s no good! Definitely no!) (Ira)

The agitated voice of Ira-sama resonated.

(I am joking, Ira-sama.) (Makoto)

(Eh…? Really? I sensed seriousness from your thoughts though.) (Ira)

I wouldn’t change my policy after going through the trouble of coming 1,000 years to the past. 

But that Queen Nevia just doesn’t look like the kind of villain that was depicted in history books. 

(Idiot, there’s no way a woman that Charms others because they don’t obey you is a good person.) (Ira)

Hmm, but the people in the Moon Country that were Charmed by the Queen were living happily. 

It was at the time when I was having these conflicting feelings…

(…Hm?) (Makoto)

(What’s the matter, Takatsuki Makoto?) (Ira)

“XXXXXX (Come here).” 

I was called in Spirit Language.

A Water Spirit. 

But it is strangely uncourteous.

(Ira-sama, I was called by a Spirit.) (Makoto)

(Is it okay? …Isn’t it a trap?) (Ira)

(No, this is most likely that guy.) (Makoto)

The promise was that we wouldn’t meet each other until the Great Demon Lord’s battle is over, but did something unexpected happen?

“XXXXX (Here, hurry).” 

A Water Spirit with a dark and cold voice that would be unthinkable from the Water Spirits I normally speak to and Dia.

The user of this Spirit has not managed to get along with the Spirits at all.

I advance without much obstruction.

I followed with quick steps so as to not lose it.

I was guided further and further to the outskirts, and was brought to a place that looks like ruins where there’s no one.

Is this the spot? 

(The one coming here is the Black Knight Demon Lord, right?) (Ira)

(Yeah, most likely.) (Makoto)

The only ones I have met here who can use Spirits are Cain and Johnny-san.

Johnny-san wouldn’t do something as roundabout as this. 

That’s why I think it is him.

I wait and wait and wait, but no one’s coming. 

Oi, if you are going to be calling me, wait for me properly. 

(He isn’t coming. I am going back to work. If anything happens, call me.) (Ira)

I answer with ‘Yes~’ and the transmission is cut.

Demon Lord Cain is a believer of Noah-sama, so Ira-sama can’t see the future of when he will come. 

(I should just wait patiently…) (Makoto)

1 more hour after that…

“Makoto! Glad to see you are alive!” 

A man in full black armor appeared. 

It is Demon Lord Cain as expected.

He doesn’t have his usual full face helmet probably to not stand out. 

Even so, his full black armor gave out plenty enough presence.

“Did something happen?” (Makoto)

“What happened, you ask? A God Rank Spell, Cocytus, was activated. Are you okay?!” (Cain)

Aah, it looks like he came all the way here worried.

“I am okay. In the first place, I was the one who casted that spell.” (Makoto)

“W-What…?” (Cain)

Cain was surprised.

Well, Cocytus is a Holy God Spell.

It can’t be helped that he would be surprised.

I was thinking about how to explain it to him, but…

“MAKOTO-SAN!!!” 

A shout filled with bloodlust resonated.

That startled me.

“Eh?” (Makoto)

I hurriedly turn around and freeze. 

“Hm.” (Cain)

Cain quickly stood in front of me and readied his sword.

The one there was…

“Anna-san…” (Makoto)

It is not her usual self. 

She had her eyes wide open and had her sword ready with rough breathing.

(This is bad.) 

I was careless.

Why didn’t I notice?

Even though I was confirming all sides with RPG Player.

“Makoto-san…please explain this to me. Why…are you talking with Demon Lord Cain in such a familiar manner…?” (Anna)

“…”

“Please say something!” (Anna)

The voice of Anna-san felt as if it could explode at any moment now.

No, her anger might have already peaked a long time ago.

I could hear the grinding of her teeth all the way here. 

“He killed my master, the Fire Hero.” (Anna)

Saying this, mana began gathering in her Holy Sword with incredible force.

It was comparable to the time when she cut down the Demon Lords.

The air shook, and the ground was trembling. 

It felt as if she would jump at any moment.

On the other hand, Demon Lord Cain had his sword ready, but he wasn’t releasing any aura at all.

“Makoto-san! …Why are you not saying anything?” (Anna)

“…”

What should I say?

What should I do to escape from this?

“…Makoto-san, were you deceiving me?” (Anna)

Her eyes were bright red, and there were tears overflowing.

I choked on my words seeing those eyes.

This isn’t an atmosphere where I can say ‘Calm down for now’, or ‘you must not waste your mana here because we will be fighting the Great Demon Lord tomorrow’.

Just when I was about to speak…

“I see, you are the Light Hero, huh.” (Cain)

Demon Lord Cain returned his sword to his waist. 

And then, he spoke these next words with a gentle voice.

“Please cut off my head with that Holy Sword.” (Cain)

◇Anna’s POV◇

“Eh?” (Anna)

A dumbfounded voice came out from me. 

“Cain…you…” (Makoto)

Makoto-san spoke to Demon Lord Cain with a complicated expression.

“It is okay, Makoto. An incompetent Apostle like me can’t do anything for the sake of Noah-sama aside from offering my life here. By being slain by the Light Hero here, we will approach the original history, right?” (Cain)

What is this man saying?

Anger and confusion were scrambling the thoughts in my head. 

“Now, Light Hero, cut me. And then, save the world.” (Cain)

The Demon Lord Cain approached me with a gentle face.

“…!” 

I ended up taking a step back at this abnormal sight. 

My own heart began to encourage my hesitant self…

Kill him! 

He is the one that killed Master! 

I clenched my teeth, held the handle tightly, and raised my sword. 

Demon Lord Cain wasn’t moving. 

He had a peaceful expression.

I glance at Makoto-san.

He was still making a complicated expression.

Are you not stopping me?

Are you not an ally of Demon Lord Cain?

I don’t understand…

Just what’s the correct thing here?

“UWAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!” 

I charge at Demon Lord Cain with my head still in a mess.

He didn’t avoid my sword.

The slash cuts the neck of Demon Lord Cain.

Blood gushed out, and Cain fell on his knees and collapsed.

The ground is stained in bright red. 

“Ah…Aaah…I…” (Anna)

I finally avenged my Master…

It should have been my desire…

Since the day my Master died, I pledged vengeance. 

I achieved it. 

And yet, there’s no sense of achievement at all.

The dull sound of a sword falling to the ground resonated.

“Cain…” (Makoto)

Makoto-san approached the Black Knight Demon Lord with a sad expression.

Why are you making such a face? 

So he really was your ally.

Did you betray me?

But he didn’t stop me from cutting Cain.

“What’s the matter, Makoto?” 

“Hm?” 

“Eh?” 

Demon Lord Cain stands up.

Now that I look closely, the cut I made has completely closed.

“Wa…Wa…?!” (Anna)

Why?! 

I definitely cut him.

With my all.

Why can he stand as if nothing happened?

“You were alive, Cain?” (Makoto)

“Looks like I couldn’t die thanks to the armor of Noah-sama.” (Cain)

“Right, there’s a complete recovery spell on it.” (Makoto)

“Exactly. As expected of the Divine Protection of Noah-sama.” (Cain)

“That’s such nice armor. I would have liked one when I became her Apostle.” (Makoto)

“If I die, I will pass it onto you, Makoto.” (Cain)

“The sizes don’t match.” (Makoto)

“Don’t worry. It is a sacred treasure made by Noah-sama, you know? When you wear it, it will fit the wearer.” (Cain)

“I see… But I can’t equip anything heavier than my dagger anyways.” (Makoto)

“Isn’t that an exaggeration?” (Cain)

“I am serious.” (Makoto)

“You should train your body a bit more.” (Cain)

“Even when I train, my physical strength stat isn’t going up at all.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san and Demon Lord Cain were continuing their talk all carefreely. 

(What’s with these two?!) (Anna)

Aah, my head is already completely blank.

My anger had disappeared somewhere. 

“Please explain to me!” (Anna)

I demand Makoto-san.

The troubled face of Makoto-san was right there.

His usual face.

“Makoto-san!” (Anna)

“…Actually…” (Makoto)

He began speaking as if finding it hard to say. 

—And in this way, I learned the identity of Makoto-san.

“You came from 1,000 years in the future…?” (Anna)

I sat on something nearby that looked like a tar and held my dizzying head. 

I couldn’t stay standing after hearing the truth.

“And so, I came here to help the Savior Abe—Anna-san under the oracle of Althena-sama.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san stretched widely and went ‘I finally said it~’.

No, don’t just make a refreshed face all on your own here. 

“…”

Demon Lord Cain was facing who-knows-where with an absentminded face.

I couldn’t feel the pressure he had when he attacked Laberintos at all.

He is waiting for our conversation to finish.

“And so, your relationship with Demon Lord Cain…?” (Anna)

“The Apostle of the Old God Noah-sama. Cain is the one of this era while I was the one from 1,000 years in the future.” (Makoto)

“That Goddess is an Evil God…right?” (Anna)

“She is a God that lost in the Divine Realm War, so she is treated as an Evil God, but the reality is that she is a weak Goddess that is trapped in the Deep Sea Temple and can only have 1 believer.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san said this as he shrugged his shoulders. 

I once again look at both Makoto-san and Demon Lord Cain.

The two are believers of the same God, and it was not as if he had betrayed me. 

These circumstances far surpass my imagination.

“Then, what should I do? I would happily give my life for the sake of Noah-sama.” (Cain)

I twitch at the words of Cain.

Why so easily…?

Rather than anger, I felt disturbed by this. 

“What do you want to do, Makoto-san?” (Anna)

Makoto-san was surprised by what I said.

A while after troubling himself on what to say, he mutters.

“Noah-sama would be sad if she lost her only believer.” (Makoto)

He said with a sad countenance. 

That was all.

He didn’t tell me not to take my revenge. 

He didn’t tell me not to kill Cain.

In other words, he is leaving it to me. 

Telling me to do as I wish.

It was just like before. 

I am sure he wouldn’t stop me from cutting down Cain.

That’s because Makoto-san is here for my sake after all.

Because that’s the mission of Althena-sama. 

Makoto-san will always take my side. 

He came from the future for the sake of that. 

All by himself. 

“Makoto-san, will you be returning to the future one day?” (Anna)

I asked worried. 

“I want to, but I have to find a way to first.” (Makoto)

He laughed saying ‘the spell of Ira-sama was a one-way ticket after all’.

I couldn’t laugh.

(This person has continued fighting on in a past where he knows no one, all by himself…) (Anna)

I didn’t know anything. 

I continued relying on him without knowing anything. 

I have been saved by him the whole time. 

And if I cut down Demon Lord Cain, Makoto-san will lose the first believer friend he met. 

I still hate him for killing my Master. 

Even so, hearing how Makoto-san sacrificed everything in order to come save the world, I didn’t feel like performing my personal revenge.

(…Aah, Master, please forgive me.) (Anna)

“Demon Lord Cain, if you are the ally of Makoto-san, please help us out in the fight against the Great Demon Lord tomorrow.” (Anna)

I gave up my revenge. 

“…Is that okay?” (Cain)

“Is that okay with you, Anna-san?” (Makoto)

Makoto-san and the Demon Lord look here in wonder. 

“It is okay! Let’s go explain to everyone!” (Anna)

I pull the hand of Makoto-san before I change my mind. 

◇◇

We returned to the inn and we explained to everyone that Demon Lord Cain has become an ally. 

The White Dragon-sama and Momo-chan opened their mouths so wide in surprise it felt like they could drop to the ground. 

On top of that, Makoto-san told them that he came from 1,000 years in the future, and the two were on the verge of fainting.

“That was…unexpected.” (Mel)

The voice of the White Dragon-sama was trembling. 

“Are you going to return to the future, Makoto-sama?!” (Momo)

Momo-chan made the same question as me.

And then, when she heard the response ‘I want to, but I don’t have the method to’, she made a complicated expression.

After that, we listened to the various stories of Makoto-san about the era he was in.

Demon Lord Cain said ‘I will take my leave’ and disappeared into a free room.

The story about Makoto-san actually being an otherworlder, and not being a resident of this world in the first place. 

The story about him being a Hero of a place called the Water Country. 

The story about him fighting Demon Lords in the future together with his comrades.

The story about the lovers he left in the future.

……And the story about being transferred to the past with no way to return. 

Hearing this, we gasped.

How overwhelming. 

I want to hear more. 

But we decided to go to sleep early in preparation for tomorrow. 

By the way, Johnny-san was not here. 

Just as he said, he returned in the morning. 

When we told him the situation the next morning, Johnny-san laughed and said ‘that’s just like Makoto-dono’.

This person is too calm.

He did get slightly shaken when he saw Demon Lord Cain though.

Makoto-san, Momo-chan, White Dragon-sama, Johnny-san…and Demon Lord Cain.

We waited for their call with this strange gathering. 

Afternoon came and…

“Everyone, I have come to get you. Now then, I will guide you to that personage.” (Nevia)

There were Laphroaig knights lined up in front of the inn.

From within them, Queen Nevia showed herself with a smile filled with affection.

    1. Well, tbh i feel like this chapter is somewhat lacked tension. I mean, I know anna and co will eventually being told the truth but I didn’t expect this kind of way though. Also why Cain attitude suddenly turned 180 degrees? what happens to his former personality? Did he get purified by Makoto or something? Well, I just pitying anna since maybe her decision could be considered as an act of betrayal towards her master (at least I’m sure her master won’t mad at her). Looks like her affection towards Makoto is taking over her reason for revenge. Don’t worry anna, people often say that revenge only makes you suffer. Better for you to gain your own happiness.

      Now towards the final battle!

      1. When Makoto is here, Cain looks like a straight man… Is it because Makoto is crazier than him ?

        I feel like things could have been messier.
        Speaking of happiness, I wonder how Anna found happiness in the original history.

      2. Yeah that’s what I talking about, Makoto is sure will leave her behind but could she really handle that? We know that the story of Abel left behind anna in the original timeline is bullshit since they were the same person but how about now? I’m worried that maybe anna will fall into despair since Makoto is currently a pillar for her heart. But alas if anna didn’t break up with him and didn’t founded the highland country it will bring great trouble in the future. Or maybe you could create a clone of anna and take the original anna to the future?

        Also crazy is not enough to describe Makoto. he’s already inhuman. Just looking at what he has done before no one will doubt that he’s already out of common sense

      3. I was thinking that maybe she will go with him to the future, since you know this a happy go lucky kind of story so….. But when you imagine anna meeting with Ryoski’s fiancee (don’t remember her name) it will be funny and it will look that they are NTR-ing each other 😂😂✋. If you ask how can this happen if anna left the past? All i can say is that this that kind of story where there’s no bad end.

      4. Noah’s apostles are all the kind of crazy that can just exchange their life for their goals, at the drop of a hat. So Makoto will use really dangerous sacrificial techniques with no fear, unless strictly forbidden, and Cain can just let his head be taken, if another believer is ready to pick up after him.

      5. I agree. Honestly, it felt like the author was just settling many possible loose ends he had originally set up as conveniently as possible. And the way they handled the whole, I’m 1000 years from the future reveal just felt too low key. You might as well dedicate the whole chapter to the aftermath of the reveal.

      6. It is reasonable though. This whole arc has taken way too long and will reach a year in length on May 14 and as of now, it is still approaching the conclusion. Do you understand how long that took? At least to me as a raw reader, adding more spice and drama would make the whole thing boring over time.

        None of the characters aside from Anna actually have anything against Cain so the main problem to solve is her. I definitely think that the party shouldn’t matter to this situation as much as Anna. About her however, since she is in love with Makoto, she takes consideration of his feelings and what he did for her. Knowing his circumstances definitely helped more to make it more fluid. She already knows that Makoto will take her side even if she does kill Cain so she doesn’t instead to show consideration for Makoto’s sacrifices.

        Cain on the other hand has realized what he did and that as he said, he was incompetent as Noah’s apostle though Noah had some fault there. Making his ego high as it was before makes zero sense for his character development. Have you seen someone looking for forgiveness by getting executed act high and mighty?

      7. Well we already know the royal family lie about things. The official story they put out is that after Abel founded Highland, he went to go take care of his ailing mother for the rest of his life in peace. Noel tells Makoto about this before telling him that Abel just one day disappeared after telling Anna that there was a woman waiting for him. So there is a high chance that the royal family has also lied about Anna being their ancestor. Either they are some long-lost relatives who take advantage of Anna’s fame or they really are complete strangers and Noel looking like Anna is just a complete coincidence. Heck maybe Anna or Abel’s stand-in Makoto never even were involved in the founding of Highland and the royal family just made it up while people like Momo kept quiet since it wouldn’t do any good to start new conflicts at a time when humanity is just getting back on its feet.

      8. From my perspective, there are two possibilities. First is that Anna’s gender issues solve themselves when she falls in love or her Albel side is absorbed as she grows older. If you havent noticed, we rarely see Albel anymore. So I think it only right for the Albel of the Pre-Makoto history to also fade away as Anna matures or falls in love. From there it would be normal for her as part of the “hero’s” party to be sought-after by those who started the Highland kingdom

        Not that any of that really matters now that Makoto has taken a big hot steaming dump all over how history was suppose to play out. I really wonder how these changes are going to effect the “future” because even if history is written by the victorious, there is little to no resemblance to any of the known accounts.

      1. It was stated that the humans of this world are hard coded to live a certain number of years. So even if they kept their wonky system life gauge full, they still die once they reach counterstop. So that beig said, even if Kane cant be killed while wearing the armor, he would still die of old age.

      1. Actually, I feel like his weak stats are what was deterring him from doing even crazier things. If he had strong stats, he would have plunged right into a high difficulty dungeon and died.

      2. I think Makoto would be able to wear Kane’s armor despite his weakness. The Armor is of divine origins, probably weighs nothing and boosts the wearer’s stats to a ridiculous degree. The main reason Kane doesnt get much benefit out of it because he never trains and has always relied on his armor to do all the work.

        So in a very real sense, Kane can only compete with the heroes or demons because of the armor. If your were to give that to Makoto… forget the Demonlords, he could probably go toe to toe with many of the titans and gods.

    1. Probably wrong but they probably believe his story this time because of the fact that theres no other way to explain how they got Cain on their side. That or Ira said something and just fact checked everything for them while the reason they didn’t believe the girlfriend story was because there was nothing to prove it especially since at the time they thought that Makoto was apart of their era where if you have a lover you’re not gonna be a virgin especially if you have 4 of them

    2. With the 4 girlfriend thing, they just thought it was making up an excuse to reject Anna.

      After all this time, he’s earned the trust of everyone so obviously they would believe him when tells them about something serious like this. And they knew there were a lot of odd things about Makoto so this explains everything. Doubting him would be irrational.

      In regard to Cain, what Anna was really concerned about is that Makoto might be secretly working with demons. However, that makes no sense what so ever. It makes more sense for them to believe that Makoto managed to convince Cain, who is human in the first place, to side with humans instead of demons.

  4. Idiot, there’s no way a woman that Charms others because they don’t obey you is a good person. -Ira
    Should you really be the one to say that? Hasn’t Ira tried to Charm Makoto to becoming her Hero or Apostle before multiple times? Noah and Eir have also tried to Charm Makoto to make him obey him.

    Anyways the whole thing with Cain and Anna felt kinda short. I expected more drama and it to be more prolonged even if it was futile to cut up Cain. Also I expected to see everyone react more to Makoto revealing he is from the future. Especially the reaction of the girls realizing that Makoto wasn’t lying about having four lovers. I also hoped to see Makoto revealing to Momo that he’s her Guardian Knight in the future.

    Well looks like Cain has joined the party to confront Iblis. Given how he’s been acting why do I feel like he’s trying to set himself up to become a heroic sacrifice to atone for all he’s done? Anyways I guess now history will remember him as a redeemed warrior since he’s going off to confront Iblis with the Light Hero. That should probably help future Noah gain more believers than she already is getting. Also I wonder what will happen to Cain afterwards since history says that Abel killed Cain but we just saw that Anna(bel) is unable to kill him. Also I strangely hope that Cain’s soul eventually reincarnates in Makoto’s era so they can meet again. Maybe gender-bent as a girl since Cain has acted very girly at times and have her join Makoto’s harem. Anyways maybe they can be reborn as Noah’s Hero in the future or her Oracle if Cain gets reborn as a girl. I don’t know about Apostle since I don’t know if there is a rule about how many Apostles a god can have.

    1. An apostle is the most faithful of all of the believers so there should only be one at a time. Since Noah only has a single believer at a time, that automatically makes them her apostle.

      >> Should you really be the one to say that? Hasn’t Ira tried to Charm Makoto to becoming her Hero or Apostle before multiple >> times? Noah and Eir have also tried to Charm Makoto to make him obey him.

      “There are no good goddesses” – Eir

      Noel tried to trick Makoto from the very beginning and Eir has been acknowledged as being a bit blackhearted. Ira knew it wouldn’t work in the first place so she probably did it just for the sake of it.

      But yes, it was hypocritical humour.

      >> Anyways I guess now history will remember him as a redeemed warrior since he’s going off to confront Iblis with the Light Hero
      Nah, Ira is planning to avoid changing history as much as possible. The only people that know about Cain switching sides is them so that can be easily hidden.

      >> Maybe gender-bent as a girl since Cain has acted very girly at times and have her join Makoto’s harem.
      Can you… not?

      1. Ira never said she wanted to avoid changing history as much as possible. Even if she did, it all became moot when thousands or tens of thousands of people -including Heroes- and Ancient Dragons that were supposed to have died in Laberintos at Cain’s hands instead survived. Althena even gave Makoto permission to change history as much as he wants so long as Abel doesn’t die. Makoto was the one with the weird hang up of trying to have his actions follow what history recorded.

      2. I think Eir is more than a *little* black hearted. Putting aside that she did kill Makoto once (despite acting close with him), she invented a magic to torture people slowly… even after death. So that spell isn’t even intended as a weapo

        She puts on a smile and has fun while telling others she’s a pacifist, but she’s surprisingly scary.

        They told Makoto to do whatever he wanted and that Ira was going “work hard” to “fix it up” so that it would be close to the existing history.

  5. Hunh? What? Makoto had to spill the beans, everyone accepted it and it’s all good. Let’s all go take care of Iblis. By the way, is probably a girl.

  7. Thanks for the chapter.
    Apparently attacking the worst secret boss in the World for six months with a little Brotherhood crazier than you for Six months (they said Makoto often left the sun temple during the time skip) is good for your sanity.

    But seriously getting kouhai to talk to and look up to (because he is a little crazy) is probably the reason why Cain is sane now.

    And apparently Makoto didn’t seem to have said that in his present he is Momo’s knight (and best soft drink) otherwise her reaction is weird.

  8. Here is some red meat for the fujoshi. Passing on the armor in ancient the Mediterrainean meant an older mentor taking on a younger man as his apprentice warrior and more. Like that famous Thebian unit.

  9. Well damn, killing that guy was out of the question in the 1st place. He couldn’t even die when killed.
    This is like getting a secret character as party member in RPG lol.

  10. Thanks for the chapter !
    I understand that a lot of people found this part rushed and anticlimactic, but I did appreciated it a lot.
    Author wrapped up things nicely, by me. First of all, we made a lot of assumption on characters from the past just because history or present characters told us so. But we also understood soon enough that was only unreliable information. So that’s not so ubrurd to see Cain change so much. He will do whatever for Noah, he has a really sad bacstory explaining his distrust for people and he looks up to Makoto…
    The problem was Anna, but leaving aside she actually killed Cain (and then he came back!), she only really wanted to be sure Makoto didn’t betrayed her.
    I was actually kind of happy Author-san wrapped up everything nicely before the big encounter…
    Now it’s Iblis showtime!

  12. I feel like anna and momo listening to the future self of makoto intensely gather information eegarding his lover or his relationship life… how sweet of them feeling that way even though in harsh predicament

    Like

  13. So he just joined? Well why not, it’s a Makoto kind of situation so it passes.

    Theory Time:
    After Makoto leaves, his party mostly composed of long-lived races would “hang out” until he returns to his timeline.

    Momo a vampire just protected highland cuz why not.

    Mel went back to his father and waited for Makoto to challenge her father. Whether Makoto wins or loses, she will follow him.

    Dia is always by Makoto’s side the first second he was transported in that world. Proficiency just made is easier for them to communicate.

    And lastly Anna, the one I’m guessing with the lowest life expectancy, asked a Goddess or someone to freeze her body until the time is right. Until Makoto learns the truth again.

    Now who would be Noel’s ancestor? Simple, a family member of Anna (Anna’s Aunt or maybe even Grandma)

    –Is a virgin’s (Makoto’s blood) actually tastier than “tainted” blood?
    I would guess, Yes, virgin blood is indeed tastier but not by much. The reason The Great Sage, AKA Momo, loved Makoto’s blood is because there is a sense of familiarity with it.

    Her Master’s and also her Lover’s blood.

    Momo best girl btw, other than gods ofc…

  15. Cain join party eh,,,
    Yeah, its pretty much normal in jrpg, rival/enemy join the party after the protagonist make him realize their mistake and become a “good person”

    In makoto case, he told cain that what he has done and what he will do will only make noah suffer more in the future and he is practically used by the great demon lord and the promised demon lord said about noah is provenly wrong,,, so yeah, its pretty much normal in RPG game,,,

  16. Thanks for the chapter!!

    Now with Cain join the party, I kinda had another what-if theory. To fix this messed up history, what if Makoto asked Cain to be Abel and act like the Light Hero? I mean, Makoto once comment that the statue of Abel was a very good-looking man and Cain actually fit the bill. What if that statue was actually created based on Cain, not Abel since Abel had permanently turn into Anna when the war kicks in.

  18. This is only me guessing but it might be possible that Anna is sleeping inside the coffin that makoto saw in momo’s castle (I forgot which chapter is it) so she can reunite with makoto again,
    And there’s also a possibility that makoto is the one who’s sleeping inside so he can go back to the future,though this one’s unlikely to happen.
    This is my first time to comment in here. THANKS FOR THE HARDWORK AND FOR THE NEW CHAPTER~

  20. Well…I guess that settles that. Much like the 4 girlfriends thing, Takki got through just by being completely insane and lacking in sense-this time with an assist from senpai. She still hates him, but the sheer insanity in front of her knocked her out of her bloodlust enough, it seems. At the very least, they can shelf the matter for now because Cain and his willing neck isn’t going anywhere.
    I’ll be honest, Cain offering up his life and forgetting that he won’t die is totally a sort of accidental troll thing Takki would do.

    Finally, the truth is revealed. Now we can start looking into ways back to the future, I suppose. And the girls will have to slowly internalize his eventual departure.
    …Hmm. I wonder if they’re going to use Cain’s previously hidden face as a stand-in for Abel when rewriting history? That would be convenient at least. Here’s hoping he and Anna have some awkward but funny interactions now.

    “There’s no way a woman that Charms others because they don’t obey you is a good person.”
    You wanna review what several of your sisters and you yourself has done, Ira? In fact, Cain is fair, but where were you on warning about Anna!?

    lmao anna has a really hard life lol,both believers of noah are total psychopaths who really don’t think normally.The most comical part was cain realizing he didn’t die
