TLN: Heya guys! Reigokai here!

Double chapter today, make sure you didn’t miss the previous chapter!

Also, this will be the last sponsored chapter for Weakest Mage. What a long way we have gone.

Anyways, enjoy the chapters!

Sponsored Chapter!

Seeing that which was in the middle of the tower, I furrowed my brows.

(What’s this?) (Makoto)

Those were the first words that surfaced in my mind. 

That place that’s located higher than where I am standing would be where the throne is? 

The Queen of the Moon Country and Calamity Witch, Nevia, was standing by at the side. 

“Everyone, you are in the presence of the great Iblis-sama.” (Nevia)

She informed us. 

—The Great Demon Lord Iblis.

The boss of the Demon Lords that rule the world.

Stories that say it is an immortal monster that’s immune to all attacks.

Stories that say it is a blasphemous being that can even revive the dead. 

Stories that say it has a fearsome appearance that makes any who see it tremble in terror. 

There’s a lot of those, but no one knows in detail. 

I have also heard that it is an immaterial being that doesn’t have a set form. 


“You are the Great Demon Lord?” (Makoto)

Even when hearing what the Calamity Witch said, I asked this to ‘that’ still unconvinced.

It doesn’t have the shape of a person.

Or more like, it doesn’t even have the shape of a living being. 

If I had to put it in words, it is a lump of meat floating in the air. A grotesque monster that has the heads, arms, and legs of people, monsters, and insects attached haphazardly. 

Rather than calling it a living being, it would make more sense if it were called a work of art in a museum.

But that lump of meat was pulsating, and was certainly alive. 

The color of that lump of meat was a mess as if paint buckets of red, blue, and yellow had been splattered all over it. The colors were so loud that just looking at it was tiring my eyes.

The arms attached to the lump of meat were constantly moving like they were tentacles, and it stirred my disgust even further. 

The many mouths on it were constantly letting out ‘kiiii…kiiii…’ unpleasant noises.

But what pulled my attention the most were the eyes of varying sizes that were attached everywhere in the lump of meat. 

They were shining rainbow, and their gazes were restlessly swimming around.

A number of the eyes were looking here, and I felt goosebumps when our eyes made contact.

(It is kinda…like a Taboo Monster…) (Makoto)

The monsters that were outside Eden were plenty creepy already, but they are cute compared to what’s in front of us.

It is ironic that now a part of me can even agree with what the Moon Queen said about them being cute.

Can we even have a conversation with this? 

I was waiting for a response to my question and…

“Oh my!” (Nevia)

The Moon Queen raised her voice in happiness.

“That’s splendid! Only you are not losing your consciousness after seeing Iblis-sama, huh!” (Nevia)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

I felt something off from what she said and looked back.

“Geh.” (Makoto)

My comrades have collapsed.

Anna-san, Momo, and even Mel-san were prostrated.

Oi! Why has even Cain collapsed?!

The only one who is maintaining consciousness with a knee on the ground was Johnny-san.

Looks like it paid off that he didn’t see it directly. 

“Anna-san, get a hold of yourself! Johnny-san, are you okay?!” (Makoto)

I hurriedly hold Anna-san up, and call Johnny-san.

“Yeah, I was simply hit by the miasma…” (Johnny)

A response came from Johnny-san.

He is waking up Momo and the White Dragon-san.

I will leave that to him.

I readied myself thinking we would be attacked in this opportunity, but the Calamity Witch and the Great Demon Lord didn’t do anything. 

They are looking down here with smiles.

“Ma…koto…-san…” (Anna)

Anna-san speaks with a pale white face.

Her eyes had no light and were unfocused.

I softly place a hand on her forehead and mutter.

“Sun Magic: [Synchronization].” (Makoto)

I used the Elementary Sun Magic spell Heal.

It has low potency, but using it on her while synchronizing with her made the light in her eyes slowly come back.

“Anna-san, now that you regained consciousness, use sun magic to recover yourself.” (Makoto)

“O-Okay… What will you do Makoto-sa—” (Anna)

Before Anna-san asked me, I stretched my right hand to the front and shot a Water Ball.

The water ball that was the size of a basketball hit right on the face of the Black Knight.

“Hah!” (Cain)

Cain jumped up after being splashed water on him.

“Did I lose consciousness?!” (Cain)

“…Don’t go giving me that…” (Makoto)

Didn’t you say you met it several times already? 

I looked down at him coldly and Demon Lord Cain tried to explain flustered. 

“That’s not it! That’s…I have never seen that!” (Cain)

“…That’s right. The Great Demon Lord I know doesn’t look like that…” (Mel)

The White Dragon-san responded to the shout of Cain.


We got the wrong Great Demon Lord?

I once again look at the Calamity Witch and the Great Demon Lord.

When I did, the many rainbow shining eyes closed, and a black haze covered the Great Demon Lord. 

That feeling of disgust disappeared a bit. 

“This is so saddening. The only one who can look at the sacred figure of Iblis-sama is Takatsuki-san, huh.” (Nevia)

The Calamity Witch sighed heavily. 

“What does that mean?” (Makoto)

I asked, but having seen how Anna-san and the White Dragon-san ended up just a few moments ago, I had an idea of what it was.

I know a similar situation.

It was like the time when everyone saw the figure of Noah-sama at the Great Church in the Sun Country. 

“Why…is someone like you here?!” 

A beautiful female voice resonated inside the tower.

“W-Who is it?” (Momo)

“Who goes there?” (Cain)

Momo and Cain raised their heads and looked around restlessly. 

But I wasn’t that surprised.

It is a voice I am already used to hearing.

“Ira-sama?” (Makoto)

The voice of the Goddess that I normally can only hear in thought transmission.

“Oh my, is it okay for a Goddess of the Divine Realm to interfere in the Mortal Realm? You are going to get punished, you know?” (Nevia)

The Calamity Witch asks as if poking fun at her. 

“Moon Oracle Nevia! Why are you together with someone like this?! What is the Moon Goddess Naia doing?!” (Ira)

“Fufufu, the Moon Goddess-sama doesn’t interfere with the Mortal Realm at all. You should know that, right, Destiny Goddess-sama?” (Nevia)

The shoulders of Anna-san shook at the shout of the Destiny Goddess.

I rubbed her back lightly to calm her down. 

“Why are you so agitated here, Ira-sama?” (Makoto)

“Takatsuki Makoto…” (Ira)

Ira-sama’s voice carried hesitation.

No, what’s weird is that Ira-sama’s voice is even reaching here in the first place. 

The voice of the Divine Realm doesn’t reach the Mortal Realm.

That’s why I communicate with Ira-sama through the magic necklace I got from her. 

“The inside of this tower has a barrier that is comparable to God Rank Magic. That’s why my voice can reach.” (Ira)

“This tower has a god rank barrier…” (Makoto)

I did feel something was off the moment I entered it. 

But there was no harm to the intruders. 

To prove that, even I who has abysmal stats didn’t feel any inconveniences. 

“What is that barrier for?” (Makoto)

“That’s—” (Ira)

“This personage can only live inside this barrier.” (Nevia)

The Calamity Witch cuts off the words of Ira-sama.

That expression of hers changed to a sad one. 

“What…do you mean by that?” (Anna)

Anna-san stood up by my side and readied her sword.

She still isn’t looking good.

“Ira-sama, please tell us.” (Makoto)

I waited for the words of the Goddess.

“…The Great Demon Lord is a Disposed God. The shadow of a God. That Devil God Typhon…it didn’t summon a Demon Lord from a parallel world…it summoned a God to this world… To think it had done such a clear breach in the Divine Realm Regulations as this.” (Ira)

“God…?” (Makoto)

I once again look at the lump of meat that is floating in the air. 

I could hardly see that thing that has arm shaped tentacles undulating as a holy being. 

No matter how you cut it, that’s a distasteful monster. 

In the first place, it hasn’t said anything for a while now. Does it even have any proper intelligence?

“…What a rude man.” 

A ghost-like beautiful half-transparent boy suddenly appeared in front of the lump of meat.

“You are…?” (Makoto)

“Iblis. I have been telling you that for a while now.” (Iblis)

I was about to say this is the first time he speaks, but then I noticed…

Could it be that the unpleasant kiikii it was making was actually him talking to us?

“Looks like the words didn’t reach you, huh. Because of that, I have no choice but to take this inconvenient soul form.” (Iblis)

The boy that’s calling himself the Great Demon Lord said this regretfully.

“Also, Destiny Goddess, one point I have to correct you about. It is not like I am here because the Devil God ordered me to. I am simply a Disposed God that escaped from Hell. You are correct in the part that I can’t live outside this tower though. Mana density in the air of the Mortal Realm is so thin that it is poisonous for me. I am barely managing to survive inside this tower.” (Iblis)

“I see…” (Makoto)

In that case, we can defeat the Great Demon Lord if we destroy this tower…?

“I would like you to not destroy this tower. If you do that, I will attack seriously.” (Iblis)

He read my mind. 

The same as Noah-sama and the Water Goddess.

But what is he thinking revealing his own weak point? 

I prepare myself to activate God Rank Magic at any moment. 

Even though the Great Demon Lord should be able to read my mind, he still directed a calm smile at me with his boy form.

“The Rozes Hero of the Water Country from 1,000 years in the future, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Iblis)

“What is it?” (Makoto)

Anna-san by my side and my comrades at the back were surprised by this, but I wasn’t.

We are dealing with a God here. 

He must have known my circumstances a long time ago.

“Not really. It is because I managed to revive 1,000 years in the future and interfere with the past that I thought of eliminating the Light Hero, but…to think they would send an assassin from the future. Moreover, an otherworlder Spirit User…” (Iblis)

The Great Demon Lord muttered ‘that was unexpected’.

“You managed to revive in the future, so you should have just worked hard there.” (Makoto)

It is because you are doing something like interfering with the past that I had to time travel here. 

“You know, right? The rulers of the Mortal Realm in the future are humans. The demons are driven away to the Northern Continent, and there’s only a few remaining Demon Lords. Our chances of victory are slim.” (Iblis)


He says this as if sad, but it stinks of a lie. 

Eir-sama said before that it is a 50-50 whether we can win against the Great Demon Lord.

“Makoto-sama…” (Momo)

“Takatsuki Makoto…” (Cain)

While I was having a conversation with the Great Demon Lord to buy time, Momo and Cain had recovered.

At least I have now confirmed my allies are okay.

But this is troubling.

It would be problematic if they were to lose consciousness when the Great Demon Lord turns into that monster form again.

“Takatsuki Makoto, use God Rank Magic to destroy the tower. If you do that, the Great Demon Lord won’t be able to show its original form or show his full power. You just need to leave the rest to the Light Hero-chan after that.” (Ira)

I nodded at the advice of the Destiny Goddess.

So we really gotta do this.

—I hold the necklace hanging from my neck that Ira-sama had given me.

“Are you going to use the Divinity you finally managed to get in such a wasteful manner?” (Iblis)

The one who stopped me was the Great Demon Lord.

“Wasteful?” (Makoto)

That way of saying it bothered me.

Is he saying there’s a better way to use it? 

“Of course. Rather than destroying this tower, just use the Divinity to make yourself stronger. You can become an invincible warrior or the strongest mage in existence -whatever you wish. God Rank Magic can grant any Miracle after all.” (Iblis)

“You can even use it like that, Ira-sama?” (Makoto)


I couldn’t just believe the words of the Great Demon Lord, so I asked the Goddess, but she didn’t answer.

“In the first place, if you were to wish for immortality, you could even return to 1,000 years in the future. That’s your number one wish, right?” (Iblis)


I was taken aback.

Since I came to the past with time travel, I have been thinking until now that it was necessary for me to return with time travel too.

But if I myself become immortal, I can return to the future. 

I can achieve that with God Rank Magic…

“T-Takatsuki Makoto…that’s…” (Ira)

The voice of Ira-sama was trembling. 

“Looks like the Destiny Goddess doesn’t wish for you to use it in that way. It is the Divinity that she gave to you through her own mistake after all. If you were to become a demigod-like existence, it would be inconvenient for her.” (Iblis)


I had no rebuttal for the Great Demon Lord.

Is he correct?

(The method to return to 1,000 years in the future…) (Makoto)

I had obtained it without noticing it. 

If I were to use up the Divinity here, I would return to square one. 

Maybe noticing my state of mind, the Great Demon Lord continued.

“How about it? Have you lost faith in the Goddesses that are just pushing unreasonable tasks onto you? Won’t you become my ally?” (Iblis)

“The spot of Demon Lord for the West Continent is open.” (Nevia)

The Great Demon Lord and the Calamity Witch were inviting me all smiles. 

The reason why they haven’t attacked us and have been talking all this time must be because this is the main topic. 

“Makoto-san…” (Anna)

Anna-san grabbed my arm tightly. 

When I look back, Cain and the White Dragon-san were looking here uneasy. 

The answer is obvious.

“Sorry to say but…I must not become a Demon Lord, you see.” (Makoto)

I refused the invitation.

The Calamity Witch goes ‘I see…’ and makes a face of pity. 

The boy form Great Demon Lord didn’t change his expression.

“Figures. You are accompanying the Light Hero who defeated me in the original timeline and have the Divinity of the Destiny Goddess. The seat of a Demon Lord wouldn’t be enough.” (Iblis)

The Great Demon Lord floated till he was right in front of me. 

Different from the lump of meat at the throne, I couldn’t feel any pressure from this form.

The boy with a beautiful appearance as if sculpted said this cheerfully.

“Takatsuki Makoto, how about I give you half of the world if you become my ally?” (Iblis)

“Wa?! Are you serious, Iblis-sama?!” (Nevia)

The Calamity Witch at the side raised her voice in shock.


Anna-san and the others opened their mouths wide.

I was a bit surprised too.

“Quite generous there.” (Makoto)

“You are worth that much. There’s no need to return to being the Country Designated Hero of a weak country in the future. You are a ruler of this world.” (Iblis)

The clear voice of the Great Demon Lord resonated sweetly in my ears.

“Now, take my hand. Let’s rule the world together.” (Iblis)

Letters appear at the side of the smiling Great Demon Lord.

[Will you receive half of the world from the Great Demon Lord?




Author Comment: 

I thought this up because I wanted to show this choice with RPG Player. It was more of a one-off, but to think it would take more than 1,200,000 japanese characters before reaching this point…

      Wow, so Iblis a actually a God. Wtf.

      [Will you receive half of the world from the Great Demon Lord?]
      No way, did the author actually wrote that line ?. Incredible.

      ““Looks like the Destiny Goddess doesn’t wish for you to use it in that way. It is the Divinity that she gave to you through her own mistake after all. If you were to become a demigod-like existence, it would be inconvenient for her.” (Iblis)”
      So he can actually become immortal if he uses her Divinity ?

      “If I had to put it in words, it is a lump of meat floating in the air. A grotesque monster that has the heads, arms, and legs of people, monsters, and insects attached haphazardly. ”
      Not an anime, but I can only think of The Blind Idiot God…

      1. Ohhhh, those are like the space squids that Satou(God Mode) and his harem beaten to pulp~

      2. I pictured Iblis looking more like Legion instead of Van. A floating lump of meat with multiple heads and limbs sticking out haphazardly.

      3. Thanks for the chapters!

        What does it mean when you say its the last sponsored chapter doh are we caught up or something. 😭😭😭

      4. I expected that he would have a non humanoid form, since he was always been referred as “that” or “The great personage”. I also expected him to be monstrous to some extent, just like how the demon lord from the cautious hero turns into a monster when cornered.

      5. Now that I think about it, Makoto would actually fit quite well in the Foreigner class, possibly coming from a universe outside the one he is currently in, seeing and talking to outer gods (from his perspective) and remaining sane despite that, and being contracted to one. WM x FGO colab when DW?

      6. It might just be that my imagination-power is not strong enough, but I seem to be unable to imagine any form of Iblis, that’s worse than a cockroach.

    1. Ohhh shit wtf! This chapter was straight fire! So Iblis’s appearance is finally revealed and he is not a female and just a lump of meat. I can understand now why the author didn’t reveal his gender early. We also get a glimpse of the reason why he is so strong. Super charm magic user is not why he could do insane spells. It’s because he has Divinity. And he also has a big weakness. I know this battle shouldn’t take long but it feels like it will.

      We also have an indirect confirmation that Naia and Nevia are not the same person. Ira practically checked Nevia which should be impossible to hide in front directly and Nevia referred to the Moon Goddess as a different person. The theory that Iblis was borrowing power from her is also proven false.

      Makoto’s methods to return are laid out but if chooses to use Cocytus again, he probably won’t have any Divinity left to do what Iblis suggested.

      I’m fairly certain that Makoto won’t accept that invitation. The mission comes first if he wants to come back to the present and they do have a chance against Iblis. And he always prioritizes Noah’s orders so no chance of that happening.

      1. But i think it’s better if makoto take the offer though, he dont need to fight Iblis, got divinity to get back to the future, and half of the world could become a shelter for human, so dividing the world for human and demon together is the wisest choice rather than fighting endlessly.

        1. The words “wise choices” and “Makoto” should never be used together. This guy is a Noah simp. He’ll do whatever it takes do what Noah orders and reason doesn’t stick well to him. Plus, he’s bound to break the trust of the people who sent him and Anna who redirected her hate to Iblis instead if he accepts.

      2. There’s no way he’ll ever accept half of the world. RPG Brain tells him that’s the Bad End.

        Iblis used the line from Dragon Quest.

        Makoto will be incredibly happy he got to hear that in person for sure, but even if accepting here is not a bad end, it’s the easy route. He’s against that.

        And, wasn’t the game he was playing when he was Isekai’d also a “I offer you half of the world” game, and he turned down the offer just before the cold got to him?

        This is just perfect RPG Player Fanservice!

        Does Iblis know this? Is Iblis doing this on purpose?!

        1. Iblis and Makoto may know that reference but I for sure don’t. I got the gist from the people here though. And I agree, there’s no way he’ll ever accept his offer.

      3. It’s been referred that Iblis is on the plane above the mortals on the wood country arc. So I did expect that he was some sort of demi-god, like Alex. The revived bifrons was also something that can’t be seen normally with naked eye since it can corrupt your mind. So Iblis must have been a step further

    1. So that was iblis true form? LOL Press F for those who thought that Iblis is a loli demon. Also, another plot twists again from the author. To think that he is actually a god. No wonder people said that his power on another dimension. Just how the hell the light hero can defeat something like this before?

      “Of course. Rather than destroying this tower, just use the Divinity to make yourself stronger. You can become an invincible warrior or the strongest mage in existence -whatever you wish. God Rank Magic can grant any Miracle after all.” (Iblis)

      He so there is a method like that, no wonder ira didn’t tell him about that. Certainly, he will become Overpowered if he uses god rank magic to strengthen himself

      Takatsuki Makoto, how about I give you half of the world if you become my ally?” (Iblis)
      The clear voice of the Great Demon Lord resonated sweetly in my ears.
      “Now, take my hand. Let’s rule the world together.” (Iblis)

      [Will you receive half of the world from the Great Demon Lord?]



      Meh don’t joke around, he betrayed Noah before and he’s talking like nothing happen? Also, give Makoto half of the world? You’re kidding man ain’t no way he would agree with that. The title of this series is “Clearing isekai with zero believer goddess”. That means only Makoto that will become the ruler of this world!

      1. Makoto will probably accept his offer only if Iblis is able to free Noah from the Deep Sea Temple. Every time he was offered something, he thought of Noah first after all.

        1. Oh yeah that! The demon lords could literally just offer to free Noah to get Makoto to side with them! However, I think even if they do that, Makoto might decline because it might prevent her from gaining more believers

      2. He could take half the world and achieve half-world peace. It’s better than nothing at least. Although knowing Makoto, he’ll probably choose “No.”

      3. Well freeing Noah from the temple is more reasonable rather than ruling half of the world just as you said he probably asking for his assistance instead of ruling the world together with him. Since Iblis also a god maybe they have the chance to defeat leviathan?

      4. Freeing noah probably harder than giving half the world lol, unless they can drag leviathan into the land, I can’t see how iblis underling can defeat it.

        The only one who might be able defeat it probably light hero depend how deep leviathan is in the sea, would sun light still reach it.

      5. Nah when i said Ruling the world it doesnt mean he really managing the world by himself. He could just leave it to his subordinate and goes adventure somewhere. Besides by becoming ruler he could also gain benefit for Noah. He could spread Noah influence easily. Also remember when he choose to become water country hero? He said that choose the one that is the most fun one. So I don’t think by become a ruler of the world is bad for him. But well, maybe he just doesn’t interested to become that

      6. Did you forget that Noah’s believer limitation already removed by Althena in the present time? He could become the ruler in the future when Noah has already become the 8th pillar of the goddess.

        1. He COULD accept the half the world offer and THEN kill Iblis giving him the whole world and fixing the timeline a little. Two birds with one stone! Well, even if Makoto somehow fucks up the timeline again, Ira will somehow fix it.

          1. Nah he has a strong adversion to Iblis because he betrayed Noah and threw her under the bus, if anything he will create a condition that will force Iblis to help him take on the undersea temple.

      1. I would say that after all the chapters showing the incredible compatibility between Makoto and Ira, it is not surprising.
        The power of the legal wife must not be underestimated.

    1. Hmm Judging from the cover there’s a certain pattern that authors use when choosing who will be inside the cover.
      Noah > Lucy > Aya > Sofia > Furiae (All heroine for each arc).
      Starting from the 6th volume is back to Noah again ( I thought the author will use Janet but looks like it’s not ) and now is Lucy (together with Makoto too) so maybe the next vol cover use the same pattern like before

      1. No, but now you’ve reminded me of Pizza The Hutt…. Which is almost strangely fitting….

  1. Thanks for the double chapters

    Well, it does make sense how the taboo monsters look like, given their maker

  2. I’m pretty sure that the one thing an evil overlord should *never* do, is offer the hero half the world. It’s like the ultimate death flag for demon kings. 🤔

  3. Ooh, the famous line. Thanks for the chapter. I suppose Iblis is within what I expected. Looks like a scheming type of guy. Still, I also expected that he’s something out of the world, in a sense that he’s more of a natural disaster that have some will than a fully conscious being. But it turns out he’s more normal than I thought

        1. Makoto is a harem man after all. Has a world harem and now a heaven harem too. But… if he had to chose in a conflict between Ira and Noah?

          Even if the relationship is fairly patched (1000 years in the future from where the story is now), they’re technically from enemy factions. We can’t discount the possibility of conflict, and Makoto having to take a side – complete with an RPG Player choice.

  4. Considering the taboo monsters I suspected that he would be something like that, but then I remembered about makoto hearing the voice of a child when the priest Isaac used the record of the great demon lord, so I suspected that ibilis assumed a twisted form as disguised and in reality it was a child that no one could look at, but it turned to be the opposite: the child form is the disguise (and probably the form Cain and Mel know about) and the Lovecraftian horror is his true form 😐

  5. thank you soo much for the chapter. just want you to know that your translation work is goving a light in my dull life. thank you soo much. really wonder what makoto will say next, and really miss noah sama for a while now.

  6. I don’t think Makoto would take it, he probably would rather leave it in peace, if he didn’t promise his return to Lucy.

  7. Thanks for the chapter!

    Now go on Makoto! Join the dark side!

    Jokes aside, we know Makoto wont join him… Probably. However becoming a Demigod is a viable option, lets wait and see what happens.

  8. The mad lad did.

    Everything that has happened thus far has finally lead to a parody of the single player choice given in the original Dragon Quest. Only in that, “Half Of The World” was actually just the name of a run down fort in the middle of nowhere. That said, only the demon lord had given the hero a choice as opposed to the goddess that gave the hero none. It was originally a joke bad ending but was revisited in Dragon Quest Builders 1.

    Well, even with this choice, we all know what Makoto will choose.

    1. I straight up came down here to use those exact mad lad words. I’m glad I checked first. Take your like, you comment ninja.

  9. Would be kinda neat to see someone TAKE that offer for once and have it not be a trap. Don’t think it happens, but would be interesting

  10. Thank you kami-sama. Thank you senator Angel’s for all the help you gave us.

    Well at least we know 100% Iblis won’t be joining the harem. Anticipation is at a all time high. Hopefully author-san finishes it soon. After that it will be sad but it will be time to put WN into storage. Luckily it’s about time to take TsukiDou out of storage for a bit.

    @Dark Decornix Out of all the demon lords that offered half the world to the hero how many took it. Well I suppose hero from Maoyuu could count as a took it.

  11. Didn’t expect this novel to have so much twist. Was expecting normal OP, dense, harem novel.
    Such a great novel
    Thank you for translating it

  12. Thanks for the chapter

    Btw the author said in one of the chapters before this chapter that the moon queen nevia is similar looks to the smiling furiae in the novel cover

  13. Does take half the mean control or just plain ownership of it.
    Meaning if Makoto chooses the world would he suddenly control 50% of the 75% of water spirits?

    Obviously Makoto’s answer is No.

    Makoto would like 100% of the world please.

  14. Nice, thanks for the chapter and all your effort this far!!!!

    There´s only two chapters left until you caught the raws, so, I was wondering, when are you going to release the chapters????

    I´ve already read ahead some time ago, and I noticed that the chapters are sometimes modified, I mean, regularly there´s a new chapter every Saturday (In my time zone), but the next Saturday the author changes, add a couple of new sentences or modified something in the last chapter when he releases a new one. Some times, not every time, but he does it. For example in the next one, he adds a couple of things that were not in his original post for a week ago.

    So, are you going to release the new chapter every week or are you going to wait until the next one is released to wait for this changes?

    This updates not change the chapter as a whole, but I think its worth considerating.

  15. Thanks for the Chapter (´-﹏-`)
    What the heck with this iblis now.. why is he talking like some cheap villain now,like what
    Also i can understand now why people will become insane after seeing that lump of whatever iblis are…

  16. So Iblis isn’t a loli? That’s disappointing.

    Anyways so his origin is different than what we previously learned. Previously we were told that Iblis was a higher-dimensional being that came to this world and then successfully went through the Ascension Ceremony so his appearance wouldn’t change before using the Ceremony on others to try to make people like him because he got lonely and the Taboo Monsters were the failures. Here we learn that Iblis is a literal god that escaped from Hell though technically a Disposed God that’s a shadow of a god so he sounds weakened. I guess Typhon hid the truth about Iblis’ origins from everyone since it’s still breaking the divine rules by having a god physically existing in the mortal plane. Well it’s not like anybody follows the rules anyways. Just look at Jupiter constantly breaking them so he can go get laid.

    I don’t trust what Iblis said about using Divinity to make Makoto immortal. There’s gotta be some catch to it like if he becomes immortal, it doesn’t raise his power and thus leaves him with his original crap stats so he can’t die but is still weak. Or if he uses the Divinity to make himself all-powerful, he’ll explode because his body can’t handle the power. Basically it just sounds like Iblis is giving Makoto good advice but is really just making him waste his Divinity so he can’t destroy his barrier and be a threat to him.

    Anyways he said it. Iblis said the cliché line about offering the hero half the world. I doubt Makoto will accept the offer though. He wants to earn his victory, not be offered it by a Flying Spaghetti Monster. The only thing he’d want form Iblis is for him to release Noah and he probably can’t do that since Iblis is stuck inside this tower so he can’t go to the Deep Sea Temple to free her even though he’s a god.

    1. Besides, the old giant already said that a follower of noah has to free her. It can’t be him or other god. It has to be a follower and only cain and makoto fill that criteria

  17. Niice. It’s the classic “become mine and I’ll give you half the world.” Now then, the most logical choice for an RPG Player, we all know it already.

  18. Hmmm… Couldn’t Makoto use the Divinity to remove the Restriction on turning into a Spirit King, and possibly keep his consciousness this time? I already figured he’d want to stay in the past, but immortal, so that he has a thousand years to peacefully do closed door cultivation until he meets his friends again. Iblis lost all plot armor the second he revealed himself to not be a loli possible harem member, so there’s no way he’s getting out of this alive. Spirit King mode Makoto lost to a proper God, but he can probably fight a shadow, especially if he is conscious to take the best course of action.

  19. I was honestly expecting Ibliss to be female and an apostle with an abnormal amount of power from her God, eldritch meat lump remnant of a God was certainly not one of my guesses. Well we all know Makoto will refuse due to his promises and the fact that he never takes the easy choice but I hope they don’t do what they did with Bifron’s and skip the conclusion due to Makoto being taken out to make an opening for Anna though I wonder, with the knowledge from Ibliss that Makoto can use divinity to return home will he be able to somehow use Ibliss’s divinity after defeating him

  20. Makoto is gonna use that divinity to ascend, for sure. Or at least, he’ll invoke some crazy miracle. And IBLIS SAID THE LINE!

  21. To be honest, I’ve been waiting for Makoto to make another sacrifice for more life. The question is would he make the sacrifice to Eir or to Noah?

  22. Imagine makoto goes “Accept half of the world from you ? Sure…there’s no way in hell I WOULD ACCEPT BASTARDS WHO BETRAYED NOAH-SAMA!!!” *inserts god mode

  23. Aw. Iblis wasn’t a loli to be added into the harem. Too bad. It would have made the return to the future more amusing.

  24. After all this happened there is only one answer I wanted to know…… If Anna got pregnant and he turns into Abel wha-….. Sorry that was a strange thing to ask

  25. I thought Ira have repented from using people like a tool she did before, but i was gravely mistaken.

    At first, i hated her so much because of her methods were always only benefits herself. She only ever think of herself. All of her country exist solely so that she can get divinity, and she only thought of them as tool too.. she never considered other people, even though all the gods have been very considerate of her.

    But after she started to open up to makoto, i thought for sure she’s starting to change… So i too, just like makoto, started to believe in her and like her.. I even thought she should be in makoto’s harem later on…

    And now this… So this whole time she knew how to get makoto into the future, and she knows that the past already changed so much, yet she still so set to make it all makoto’s responsibilities, never telling him what he wanted to know the most. Why? Just because it’s inconvenient for her. So that’s why she wanted makoto to get into relationship with people from that time, because she never have any intention to let makoto get back to his original era.

    In other words, from the start until now, she never changed. She tries to use makoto as sacrificial pawn to make her job easier.

    Now among all of the characters in this series, i can say to sure, i hate her the most.

    But if that what author intended the readers to feels, then he did freaking good job there. He makes me hate a character, then melt my hate into love, then make me hate her back, with even more hate than before.

    I hope Destiny Goddess Ira would just die now, or at least have some great retribution from all other gods..

    1. Well, it was definitely mean from her to not say anything about other uses of Divinity. However, it doesn’t seem Makoto minds it that much and the readers here don’t seem really offended by it.
      Of course, it wouldn’t change the fact that Ira deceived Makoto.

    2. Hmmm. In the first place, Makoto already knew what he was sacrificing himself to do and that the possibility of getting stuck on the past is higher than returning. Anyways, even if Ira had told Makoto that he could use the Divinity she accidentally gave him to make himself immortal, he would have failed his whole mission there. She didn’t say anything not just because it would inconvience her but because there are other factors to consider that take precedence.

      His number one reason to be there is to save Hero Abel and defeat the Great Demon Lord as it was written in history. Should he make himself immortal, I am fairly sure that they won’t stand a chance against Iblis who is actually a real god. And remember, Holy Gods are forbidden in directly interfering with the lives of mortals and if she gave more Divinity to him, there’s a guaranteed worse punishment than she has now. So there’s no “legal” way for her to help him and if he used the Divinity he has for other purposes, he’ll fail his mission which takes priority over his trip back home which is why it is much better to not just say anything that will add to the chaos.

      1. I know that.. i understand what you guys are trying to get across me. But makoto resolved and risked himself into not being able to go back to the future, so why not at least believe in him? Not giving him any choices just shows how Ira had never really believed makoto since the beginning. This is exactly why makoto’s faith in Noah is so strong, its not because Noah is one of the strongest goddess comparable to athena, its not because he’s the only believer of noah, but because noah believed in him, enough to let him choose his own choices.

        Yes its true its his role to save savior abel, or maybe even destroy Iblis (in which actually not really his responsibility, because its supposed to be abel’s), BUT he should at least given choices of what he should and can do. And who does ira think she is? Makoto is not even her apostle, he is just doing her a favor, not because he’s obligated to follow her instructions. And remember, ira makes soooo much mistakes in her decision, even in 1000 years in the future, and it was makoto who always clean it up her shyts, she knows this, and she decided to do the same shyt in 1000 in the past too now.. she thinks her plan is perfect, and when makoto did something she didn’t ask him, she would scold him, wtf?

        And about the divinity.. if we think back about it, makoto could just save that divinity and used it after everything is over. That way, even if ira is punished, the mission is already completed and ira have no real need to instruct makoto again. See, this is why i said ira is a selfish b*tch.. she doesn’t want to be punished, yet she sacrificed other people apostle like they’re tool, without giving them any choices at all..

        And what? So if ira tell makoto that choice, future will be changed? The past already changed from original timeline, the only way to match it to the original timeline would be winning the war. There’s this saying, “the winner decide the history”.. as long as they won, makoto and co can just alter history written in the books. This also happened in our, real world. Many of history book in countries that gained independent through negotiation actually have something changed in their history, and people didnt know about it, or even believe when researcher tries to reveal it.

        She wants makoto to sacrifice himself, yet she didnt give her any choice. Sure makoto is okay with it, but remember that makoto been using Clear Mind, his emotions are suppressed. Even iblis seems to understand how its feels to be betrayed, even tho he himself should be a scumbag who deceived noah. Remember that when Anna heard about the whole situation of makoto, she feels so sad for him, that she thinks her sadness is nothing in comparison of makoto’s loneliness. And this very person, who only able to do everything because of his Clear Mind skills, would definitely be broken without that skills, just like any other person.

        Ira knows this, and thats why she could say nothing back when makoto asked her about the real usage of divinity.

        And like i said, ira been trying to hook makoto with people from the past, using various excuses. Which actually make sense if she doesn’t want makoto to go back to the future at all.. why would she want an unknown factors who she can’t see the future of, come back to the future and alive, of become immortal? She doesn’t like anything she can’t see the future. Its hindrance to her.

        Its all about choices.
        Ira can’t see makoto’s future, so she purposely doesn’t tell makoto knows anything she doesn’t want him to know.
        She purposely narrow down makoto’s choice into only one choice, so that she can at least predict the outcome even without being able to see the future.

        Its all about choices. And ira never gave makoto any choices. Remember, every single holy goddess who have met makoto gave him choices, and noah even gave him freedom. Just do whatever he wants, she cares but she trusted in his judgement.

        Ira? None. Not at all. Never did.
        That’s not what we call as being careful or cautious, its what we called as being SELFISH..

    3. Gods/Goddesses but Noah are always portrayed manipulative in this story. I don’t know why people keep thinking but that, and ship Makoto with one of the goddesses (Noah is the exception).

  26. I’ve got the feeling that the author just really wanted to put the line “I will give you half of the world if you join me”

  27. Thanks for the double chapter!
    Wow, finally in front of the final boss,uh? And it said the line!
    What a journey!
    Waiting for more twist in next chapters, unfortunately it seems we almost catched up with the raws…
    Thanks reigo-sama!

  28. I want him to say
    “Why would I want half the world? I basically am more than half the world.”
    *lé morph*

  29. Thanks for the double chapter!!!

    To anyone who thinks Iblis is a loil, sorry, it just a lump of meat. Even Nyarlathotep still look better than Iblis.

    And of all humans, I think Makoto was the only human who didn’t trust Ira. lol

  30. I don’t comment often but I always enjoy a story when the protagonist gets a choice like this.

  31. “I thought this up because I wanted to show this choice with RPG Player. It was more of a one-off, but to think it would take more than 1,200,000 japanese characters before reaching this point…”

    lmao XD

  32. Thanks for the chapter and thanks to the sponsors! ^^
    So Iblis is an eldritch monstruosity and Nevia may not be completely immune to Iblis.
    And good job author-san for this so Demon Lord-like proposition! XD
    If this proposition doesn’t include Noah’s freedom and conditions as good as thoses of the Holy Gods in the present there is no way he would even start considering it. And Makoto is “Hell Mode” after all. x)

  33. Ayy ty for the uploads as always! Just saying here but couldn’t he use the divinity to erase the soul bind noah used on him and synch with ira to become a spirit king of time? Sure once the battle ends ira will have to kill him but he seems the “well if its the only viable option I’ll do it” type.

    1. It’s probably possible for him to keep his sanity this time. Every time he loses control because he did something way out of his league, he does the same thing later without losing a scrap of control. RPG-Player-kun may be adapting as time goes on.

  34. Thanks for the chapter~!
    I left here for a while due to immersing myself on those cultivation novel, and we’re already going to catch up?
    Dang you people are fast

    Also, it’s funny to see that the demon king is asking Makoto the very question he shouldn’t. That gamer brain of his won’t miss this sweet chance.

    QA from the chapter when Makoto meets Dragon King (already got deleted):
    reader: Is this the first time [RPG Player] skill were seen from other people’s perspective?
    author: Not really, but if the other people who knew this (like the divinities, Noah, Ira, et-al) knew what choice pops up they’ll lose their minds

  35. “I am currently playing an action rpg that I have been into lately.

    After defeating the giant demonic dragon, the witch that rules over death, and the fallen hero, the last dungeon appears.

    By the way, my favorite ending is the one where the main character becomes the demon lord.

    I would have wanted to see that once more.”

    ^From Chapter 1. Maybe he will actually take half the world? Or he will defeat Iblis and become the demon lord in his stead? It would be a waste to set up this line at the beginning and not use it in some way.

  36. thanks for chap
    its HEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE the classic most traditional offer of the demon king “OH HERO I OFFER YOU HALF OF THE WORLD”

  37. Maybe…Makoto will accept for sharing the world, half for human half for demon, the world might be more peaceful in that case

  38. Okay, I’ll take the outer layers. You can have the gooey lava center.
    ’cause one way or another, I’m sending you straight to hell.

  39. Imma be honest, the author really set this up. Makoto has a valid reason to say yes at this point and has a lot to lose either way. Well, Anna was pretty much forced in.

  40. If Iblis is a god, then why can’t Althena or someone else incarnate and take care of him? The whole reason they mentioned for the gods not to intervene directly against the demon lords was that it would break the rules and give the devil gods justification to hit back harder. Am I missing something?

  41. I’m confused. If Iblis is actually a god than why doesn’t Althena or Jupiter or whatever remove him? He’s breaking rules.

    They expect humans and Demi humans to defeat a god?

  42. ….Well. That was a conversation. Hopefully that’s not the end of it. We finally have the identity of both the god that interfered with time and the true nature of Iblis, even if it isn’t wholly clear what exactly he is even with those names. I guess…the most appropriate way to describe him is a “Taboo God”.

    What a surprise, Nevia was actually Naia. …Why is she working with Iblis then? Her motives are a mystery still, especially if she isn’t interested in the world. Rather, can we smack her once on Furiae’s behalf?

    Unfortunately for Iblis, Takki never chooses the easy RPG Player option. This sort of offer screams “Bad End” anyway. The kinds of games that let you do this often punish you like crazy for it. Not that half the world is even his to give. I’m most curious what Iblis’s game is.

  43. Thanks for the chapter reigokai San.

    Marvellous, to think the author have prepare this chapter, especially the rpg player notifications from the start. It’s so so great job author San.

  44. He should have made it so that he can transform himself into Spirit King Mode indefinitely without going berserk. Might get killed by a goddess again though

  45. The classic line finally came. It really shows how far Makoto has come from being an unwanted dud of a otherworlder, to the hero of the story being offer the cliche of “half the world” by the demon lord. He really made it, didn’t he?

  46. HAHAHAHAHAHA, Makoto is really having a field day

    Iblis, you asked the question to the guy who loves to be asked that question and answer no

  47. Eh? Who would say yes?
    He has plenty of power, he can live however he wants to. Who would want to shoulder the pain of managing half the country

    I really don’t get the villains who like to rule the world because now what next? You have to work hard to keep your position.
    It’s better to live a carefree life and doing what you like
    It only makes sense to want to become a tyrant if you have some bigger goal, like reach some other planet or do something big because no one would be able to object your decisions. Just stopping after becoming a tyrant is just stupidity

      1. don’t forget the idiots who seeks immortality like it’s the end goal of humanities i would like to stay mortal if you give me that chioce since humans most likely will kill themselves if they gave up of their fixed life times they will achieve every wish they ever wished for they will have everything that they won’t have the desire to live anymore that’s the reason why rish people tend to suicide after some time

  48. Ah, Makoto must feel really fulfilled having received the Dragonlord’s offer- such a famous thing to receive~ Well, he’ll probably say no, but it will be interesting to see how he responds to the offer’s similarity to the aforementioned one.

  49. He will say no ofc, but since his favourite ending was the one with the MC becoming a Demon Lord, so… Perhaps if not now, later? I would like it, why not?

  50. Well, common (sharp) business practice would suggest that if he’s offering half the world it’s because he knows Makoto could take it all…? ( ಠ◡ಠ )

  51. I remember the game that makoto played right before he died. He said that his favourite route is where the hero turned into a demon lord himself. I wonder what he would do.
