Previous Chapter l Next Chapter

TLN: Hey guys, Reigokai here!

Weakest Mage has ended, so instead of the usual 3 chapters and then switch to Tsuki Extras, I will be translating all the chapters till the end.

Look forward to it!

Anyways, enjoy!

——–

— “Now then, it is time for a strategy meeting!” (Ira)

The cheerful voice of Ira-sama came at us from above. 

“What’s happening? This voice…” (Makoto)

“Now that you have become a God, I can now send my voice to you directly. Different from thought transmission, Noel-chan can also hear me, so it is convenient!” (Ira)

“…I am honored for your consideration, Ira-sama.” (Noel)

Queen Noel is humbled by this. 

We are currently at a location where we can barely see the capital of the Sun Country, Symphonia. 

It is one of the hidden bases that the Highland army used to guard the capital. 

Ira-sama told us about this base. 

There’s plentiful water and food. 

But there’s no people. 

They all must have gone somewhere, controlled by the Calamity Witch. 

“What should we do about that?” (Makoto)

I munch the beef jerky found in this base stored as preserved food. 

Salty. 

My throat is drying. 

I want to drink ale, but I gotta endure. 

What’s in our sight is the black and muddy Highland Castle. 

Gray mist is rising up from there. 

That’s the source of what’s encroaching this world. 

Also, there’s several shadows in the skies of the capital. 

Black shadows numbering the hundreds to thousands. 

Those are all apparently…Demon Lords that the Calamity Witch is controlling. 

No, they are not insects, you know… What’s this, a bargain sale of Demon Lords?! 

“Now that you have become a God, it shouldn’t matter to you how many Demon Lords there are, right? Just defeat them all.” (Ira)

Ira-sama says as if nothing. 

“I don’t know if it is because of the effects of the evolution, but I can’t control my own magic properly. I called a Sylph once, and it got hectic, you know?” (Makoto)

“Having a storm created in Highland would be a bit…” (Noel)

Queen Noel nodded at my words.

Then, what I should do is…

“Dia.” (Makoto)

I called her as usual.

“I am here, Our King.” (Dia)

The Great Water Spirit showed up without making a sound and kneeled. 

“Dia…” (Makoto)

I was going to talk to her, but I felt something was off.

The Great Water Spirit’s eyes were glistening, her cheeks were flushed, and she was showing a melting smile. 

“Aah…Our King, finally…finally you have become one, haven’t you…? Became the being that will guide us… Aah, so lovely… This beautiful skin…” (Dia)

She took my hand, and with an entranced expression, she rubbed her cheeks on the back of my hand. 

“Uhm…Dia-san?” (Makoto)

She seemed to be acting strange. 

—“It seems the Spirits are happy that a new Titan God has appeared after 15 million years.”

“Noah-sama?” (Makoto)

That’s a relief. 

I finally hear her voice.

“Noah-sama, Dia is acting weird here…” (Makoto)

—“She is simply excited, so I think she will eventually calm down. No need to mind it much.” (Noah)

“I see.” (Makoto)

Then, guess I won’t mind it? 

Let’s clear the Highland Castle together with the Great Water Spirits as usual. 

— “Mako-kun, even if water magic is your specialty, you must not use it right out of the bat, okay? Because of your ascension to godhood, you have become really strong, so you have to test it out beforehand.” (Eir)

“Ah, Eir-sama, you were there.” (Makoto)

Looks like Noah-sama and the Water Goddess are together. 

And I am grateful for that warning. 

It is true that I thought I wouldn’t fail my water magic with more than 5,000 proficiency, but better to exercise caution.

There were no issues with the movement water magic, but I still haven’t tested out attack magic. 

After thinking a bit about what spell to use…

“Water Miracle: [Water Ball].” (Makoto)

I activated the spell that was originally an elementary spell. 

“Eh?” (Makoto)

A water ball the size of a soccer ball…should have appeared on top of my palm, but…

It is not activating.

I-Impossible! 

There’s no way I would fail in using Water Ball.

— “Takatsuki Makoto, look up.” (Ira)

Ira-sama said in a baffled tone. 

“Up? …Geh!” (Makoto)

“Hya!” (Noel)

I accidentally let out a weird voice.

Queen Noel raised a short scream. 

On top of my head, around 10 meters up, there’s a Water Ball bigger than a dragon.

Why? 

— “Mako-kun, Water Ball is a spell that the mortals adjusted so that they can use it with their low mana. It is not a spell that Gods use☆.” (Eir)

— “You have become a God, so create your own Miracle magic.” (Noah)

I once again received advice from the Goddesses. 

“Make my own spell?” (Makoto)

I was surprised by the words of Noah-sama. 

But thinking about it calmly, that sounds interesting -being able to make the spell I please. 

At that moment…

“M-Makoto-san?!” (Noel)

I heard the mortified voice of Queen Noel.

When I looked at the direction she was looking at, I saw black shadows heading this way. 

“Achaa, we were found by the Demon Lord army.” (Makoto)

A water ball as big as this will of course stand out. 

“T-This is bad. We have to run away!” (Noel)

Queen Noel was getting all kinds of flustered. 

— “Why?” (Ira)

— “There’s no need to run away.” (Noah)

— “Mako-kun, you must hold back, okay?” (Eir)

The Goddesses were calm. 

I am also calm. 

This must be that.

A chance to test out my original spell. 

There’s around 20 Demon Lords heading this way. 

At a glance, they are far from matching Astaroth. 

They might even be far weaker than the Immortal King Bifrons.

In the end, they are merely Demon Lords resurrected and controlled by the Calamity Witch.

I would like a spell that can wipe them out in one hit. 

Water alone would be lacking in attack power, so let’s give it the ice attribute. 

As for the shape, I would like it to be a sword because it is cool.

Alright, I have decided. 

“Water Miracle: [Brilliant Raining Swords].” (Makoto)

The giant water ball that was floating in the air split and turned into countless shining swords.

The mana blades emanate sky-blue light. 

They all rained onto the Demon Lords like a downpour. 

“———-!!!” 

“Gy!!!” 

“………!!!!” 

The Demon Lords tried to avoid or block the swords…

But neither attempt was successful as the shining swords pierced them and turned them ice statues. 

“…W-Wow.” (Noel)

Queen Noel sighed in amazement. 

— “Nicely done, Makoto.” (Noah)

— “But the effect on the surroundings is a bit too big. 50 points, Mako-kun.” (Eir)

I was praised by Noah-sama, and Eir-sama gave me a scathing score. 

She really does have a strict eye when it comes to water magic. 

And what Eir-sama pointed out is completely correct. 

The whole area where I casted the spell has become a pure white snow field. 

Even though it was a verdant meadow just a few moments ago.

— “Mako-kun, you have to melt this ice later, okay?” (Eir)

— “Right. If left be, it won’t melt for around 100 years.” (Noah)

“100 years?!” (Noel)

Queen Noel screams. 

Having something like that happen in the vicinity of the capital would be unacceptable. 

“I will clean it up later…” (Makoto)

No good. 

This stupidly high power even from the water magic that I have grown used to. 

The effect of the evolution is way too big.

…What do I do? Is it really okay for me to rush to the Highland Castle like this? 

Would it be better to train for a bit more? 

But making my comrades wait even more than this…

Just when I was troubled here…

*Pang!!!!!*

A giant fireball came down. 

It wasn’t aimed at me or Queen Noel. It landed right in the middle of the meadow and *Boom!* a giant fire pillar raised. 

The snow field that I had created was slowly melting. 

Oh, lucky~.

A whole lot of Fire Spirits were dancing around that fire pillar. 

Fire Spirit magic…? 

Moreover, a really skilled one. 

“Oh oh? And here I was wondering what this weird magic was, but it was Lucy’s boyfriend-kun?” 

A voice came down from the sky. 

It is not from the Goddesses.

When I looked up to where the voice was coming from, there was an elf woman with blonde hair fluttering and wearing a red cloak.

Also, she is carrying people on both sides. 

I was curious about the people she is carrying, but first, I spoke to the Spirit User. 

“Rosalie-san?” (Makoto)

“Crimson Witch-sama?!” (Noel)

Queen Noel and I speak at the same time. 

The one looking down at us is the Legendary Hero of Spring Log and the mother of Lucy, the Crimson Witch Rosalie-san. 

◇◇

Rosalie J Walker.

A skilled Spirit User who has earned the nickname Crimson Witch. 

And she is also the granddaughter of Johnny-san. 

The reason we haven’t seen her recently should have been because she was in the middle of training. 

But I think she wasn’t even at the fight against the Great Demon Lord. 

I see. Rosalie-san wasn’t controlled. 

“Hm? Hmm? Lucy’s boyfriend-kun, has your atmosphere changed? You have become fancy~.” (Rosalie)

As always, she is someone that barely respects personal space. 

She is staring intently at my silver hair and blue eyes as if licking me all over. 

And there’s also something I have to ask Rosalie-san too. 

“Uhm… Are Lucy and Sa-san okay? More importantly, why are you carrying both of them?” (Makoto)

The ones Rosalie-san is carrying are my two comrades. 

Right now the two are unconscious and laid down. 

Queen Noel is currently treating them with healing magic. 

“Hmm, when I came to the Highland Castle, the royal castle had become pitch black, you know? Thinking ‘Oh! There must be trouble!’ I went to search for the Great Sage, and then Lucy and her friend Aya-chan came and said ‘Run away! We are being controlled!’. Then Lucy said something cocky like ‘I will end up hurting you, Mama!’, so I smacked their asses instead!” (Rosalie)

“You smacked their asses, huh…” (Makoto)

Rosalie-san is as outrageous as always. 

Lucy has become pretty strong, and as for Sa-san, she should be on the level of a Hero, but she easily defeated them both. 

“They both aren’t hurt, right?” (Makoto)

Lucy is the daughter of Rosalie-san, but she is also my precious comrade. 

That goes the same for Sa-san. 

From what I can see, they are not heavily injured though. 

“Fuh, don’t worry. I used the back of the blade.” (Rosalie)

“…I see.” (Makoto)

There’s no back of the blade with magic…is what I thought, but we are talking about the Crimson Witch, Rosalie-san. 

She probably has it figured out. 

Basically, she held back and still managed to overwhelm Lucy and Sa-san. 

She really is on a whole other level. 

“Now comes my question. What happened to your appearance, Boyfriend-kun? This silver hair is pretty and glossy. Also, the deep blue in your eyes is beautiful.” (Rosalie)

She was touching my hair without any restraints, but it didn’t feel bad. 

There was a sense of relief that was different from that of Noah-sama. 

I give a straightforward answer to the question of Rosalie-san. 

“Actually, I conquered the Deep Sea Temple and the Goddess Noah-sama has shared her power with me.” (Makoto)

“………………………….Oh?” (Rosalie)

I thought for sure she wouldn’t believe me, but the eyes of Rosalie-san grew sharp.

“Can you tell me about that story in more detail later?” (Rosalie)

“Yeah, of course.” (Makoto)

It would be a long one if she were to ask me to explain it now, so this really helps me out. 

And the questions of Rosalie-san didn’t stop. 

“Hey hey, so who is that elegant-looking princess over there? Another new girlfriend? If I remember correctly, weren’t you engaged to the princess of the Water Country? You are one sinful man~!” (Rosalie)

“…You don’t know who she is?” (Makoto)

Even if it is Rosalie-san, isn’t that rude? 

That’s the present queen of Highland, you know?

“Eh? Is she that famous of a person? Uhm…speaking of which, I think I have seen her before…” (Rosalie)

“It is the queen of Highland, Her Majesty, Noel. I am currently acting together with her.” (Makoto)

“Geh, the Queen?! Right! I have seen her!” (Rosalie)

Rosalie-san bends backwards. 

She seriously didn’t notice. 

“Holy, Boyfriend-kun, holy! You put your hands on the queen of Highland?! Woah, incredible! You really are something else.” (Rosalie)

“That’s not it! Why is that the conclusion you arrived at?!” (Makoto)

What an unbelievable misunderstanding. 

Queen Noel is the wife of my childhood friend Sakurai-kun.

“Eh, but you two are adventuring together, right? Were you together in the Deep Sea Temple too? Have you at least kissed?” (Rosalie)

“There’s no way we would! Are you crazy?!” (Makoto)

“Eh, but is it even possible for nothing to happen when a man and woman are adventuring alone?” (Rosalie)

“It is!” (Makoto)

It is, right? 

— “I would say it is rare. Well, my Makoto is faithful after all.” (Noah)

— “Mako-kun is an herbivore.” (Eir)

— “He is still a virgin, right, Eir-oneesama?” (Ira)

— “Right right, unbelievable, isn’t it, Ira-chan?” (Eir)

— “Isn’t it fine for Makoto to stay a virgin?” (Noah)

Even the Goddesses were saying things. 

Noah-sama, I don’t want to stay a virgin. 

“Hey, I can’t concentrate, so can you please be quiet?!” (Noel)

Queen Noel got angry. 

““…Okay, sorry.”” 

Rosalie-san and I apologized obediently. 

The Goddesses turned silent. 

Rosalie-san was making a dubious face at the voice of the Goddesses. 

I explained the current situation while waiting for the healing magic of Queen Noel. 

About the Great Demon Lord. 

About how the people in the whole world have been Charmed. 

About the current Calamity Witch. 

Rosalie-san was apparently training in a different world, so she didn’t understand the situation of this planet at all which led to taking time in order to explain to her. 

At the time when I finally explained the general situation…

Lucy and Sa-san safely woke up. 

◇◇

“Eh…? I…” (Lucy)

“Uuh…my head feels wuzzy…probably.” (Aya)

Those eyes are not from people who are ‘Charmed’.

“Noel-san, looks like the dispelling of the Charm went well.” (Makoto)

“Yes, it is thanks to the staff that Althena-sama has honored me with.” (Noel)

Queen Noel smiles. 

That’s a relief. 

“Lu—” (Makoto)

Before I could call both of them…

“Good morning, Lucy! And also Aya-chan! Is the curse gone?! Can you recognize the face of Mama?” (Rosalie)

“Mama?! Why are you here?” (Lucy)

“The mother of Lu-chan!” (Aya)

Rosalie-san patted the head of her daughter. 

She got ahead of me. 

But a mother worrying about her daughter should have the priority. 

I decided to silently watch over that. 

“You were controlled, so I came to save you! That said, the one who freed you from the curse was Princess Noel over there though. Thank her!” (Rosalie)

Rosalie-san, it is not princess but queen. 

“Thank you very much, Queen Noel.” (Lucy)

“Thank you very much, Noel-sama. By the way…Sofi-chan and the others are not here.” (Aya)

Lucy and Sa-san were thanking Queen Noel. 

“I am glad to see that you have safely awoken, Lucy-san, Aya-san. Unfortunately, Sofia-san and the other Oracles are still captured by the Calamity Witch. I am safe thanks to Makoto-san.” (Noel)

“…Eh?” (Lucy)

“…Mako…Takatsuki-kun?” (Aya)

The two reacted at the words of Queen Noel. 

“Makoto is okay?!” (Lucy)

“Where is Takatsuki-kun?!” (Aya)

What an incredibly threatening attitude. 

Wait, I am here though?

“Uhm…Lucy, Sa-san?” (Makoto)

“Makoto-san is here, you know.” (Noel)

Me calling them and Queen Noel facing this way happened at the same time. 

Lucy and Sa-san look this way. 

“Ma…ko…to?” (Lucy)

“Eh? …Takatsuki…-kun…?” (Aya)

“Yeah, it is me. I am glad to see the two of you are okay.” (Makoto)

I approach the two with a smile. 

I thought for sure they would be hugging me like usual, so I prepared myself.

But the two of them were frozen like statues. 

Eeh?

“…”

“…”

“Lucy? Sa-san?” (Makoto)

Ooi, I waved my hand.

But there’s barely any reaction. 

The two finally opened their mouths.

“Makoto…that hair…” (Lucy)

“Takatsuki-kun’s eyes…” (Aya)

“Aah, this?” (Makoto)

Looks like the two are confused by the silver hair and blue eyes. 

“I saved Noah-sama from the Deep Sea Temple and became her familiar. This is proof of that.” (Makoto)

I answered proudly. 

But there isn’t much of a reaction from my comrades.

 “Lucy, Sa-san, what’s wrong?” (Makoto)

The shoulders of the two were trembling when I asked this.

“It is somewhat different… It is Makoto, but it is different from the Makoto I know.” (Lucy)

“He has become gaudy… My Takatsuki-kun has become a gaudy man…” (Aya)

“…Eh?” (Makoto)

“Makoto has gotten weird because of the influence of a weird woman (Goddess)!!” (Lucy)

“This is terrible, Lu-chan! Takatsuki-kun might be getting deceived by a bad woman!!” (Aya)

— “Hey! Who are you calling a weird woman?!!” (Noah)

The voice of Noah-sama didn’t reach the two.

“Now now, even if I look different, the inside is still the same.” (Makoto)

I calm the two down. 

“Uuuh…Makoto looked cooler before.” (Lucy)

“Right, Lu-chan?” (Aya)

“I see…” (Makoto)

Looks like my evolved appearance wasn’t well received by Lucy and Sa-san. 

■Comment Response:

It has been a while since the comments have gone over 100! 

I am so relieved. So Noah-sama did have popularity! 

As for heroines, the comments were divided between the Ira-sama faction and Noah-sama faction.

I forgot to say this before, but many had already predicted the skill [M■■■■E■■■■■=Multi Ending] with it being 2 words. Good work to the ones who were correct. 

The other one was MoeMoeJapan. I laughed at that one. 

>Do the skills of Fuji-san and Sa-san not have a hidden power as well? 

The hidden power of Galge Player: Save & Load (You can redo your life at any point, however many times you want. Trascendental cheat).

The hidden power of Action Game Player: Continue (When the Remaining Lives hits 0, you redo everything from the point of Laberintos. Loop skill. Immortal).

→Fuji-yan is satisfied with being the agent of the feudal lord in the water city, and Sa-san is strong, so her remaining lives hitting 0 won’t be happening. 

I am sure both won’t be activating.
