Chapter 126: If it’s Raidou, the chances of that development are low

“Sorry, Raidou-dono. My strength was not enough”

[Please don’t worry about it]

After congratulating the students’ good fights, I returned to the company and Rembrandt-san was waiting there with an apology.

It seems the call of the merchant guild was related to me, and the result was not favorable.

“Looks like your activities as a company are gathering attention to you. Most likely in the country level” (Rembrandt)

[Country huh. I don’t remember doing anything to be disturbed for though]

I do think there are countries that have an interest in me. But I don’t remember having anyone who would want to interfere with me.

“Just picking their attention is plenty” (Rembrandt)

But Rembrandt-san begins talking as if he read my mind.
What does he mean by that?

“At what country will Kuzunoha Company go, and also at which will Raidou-dono go; because they have an interest, they want to know. And because of that, they would obviously investigate. You know, those kind of movements the countries do, we merchants pick up that information in a pretty early stage” (Rembrandt)

Yeah, I understand that much. When there’s friendship between the countries and the merchant, there will be times when they will hear information about it as a part of information gathering. Just like Aion Kingdom, there are some merchants that work as intelligence members as well.

“Up to this point it is still fine. But the problem comes after this. The merchants that obtain the information sometimes implant their own idea of things. For example, I participate in the government affairs of the Limia Kingdom and I’m in friendly terms with them, but in truth, it seems the Limia Kingdom is interested in the merchant named Raidou. And then I can say something like: ‘By the way, that company has this strange point, can you please have the guild investigate and deal with it?’” (Rembrandt)

[Based on that example, it would mean that Limia Kingdom is feeling something strange from my store, so they had the merchant investigate about it, right?]

Rembrandt-san smiles at my opinion.

“That’s not it, Raidou-dono. In this case, Limia took an interest in you and just wants to obtain information” (Rembrandt)

[But]

“The second half is just a personal intention of the merchant. That person doesn’t think well of you. This kind of things are unexpectedly prevalent. They don’t only get used by the country, but they also use them in order to bring benefits to them. Well, I also do that, so I am not in a position to say things of others” (Rembrandt)

… E-Ehm, that person is not lying, but doesn’t intent to correct that misunderstanding, is what he is trying to say huh. Uwa, how dirty.

“The Merchant Guild also can’t ignore the companies that are being denoted by countries as dangerous. Especially when many people say so” (Rembrandt)

[So that means the Kuzunoha Company has picked the attention of at least that many countries, and the companies that are in this town don’t view that in a favorable way]

“Not all of them, but the amount of people that are like that is most likely not small. I also heard that the Church said something recently as well. And it is dubious if it was actually directly from the Church. The Church is receiving offerings from the companies, so they can’t ignore their voices. In regards to that, I am deliberately pulling my distance though, so I am estranged in that subject. Tsige is a town that has a bit of problems with the God’s religion after all” (Rembrandt)

[I want to coexist with the people of the same trade, but it seems that will be difficult huh]

“It is a relationship where they steal benefits from each other after all. The closer they are, the harder it becomes. Even I, if you were to open a store in the times when I was troubled with the curse, I would have definitely done something” (Rembrandt)

Is that how it works?

“You should prepare yourself to a certain extent, Raidou-dono. Even if it’s a competition between people of the same trade, if the battle is decided fast, the one who lost can recover. Luckily, in this land, there are many satellite towns. If they have the drive, there are decent amount of opportunities” (Rembrandt)

[Thanks for the warning]

“No, no, here I am saying something admirable, but I wasn’t able to actually be of much use. Being thanked for that would trouble me. My daughters didn’t receive any serious wounds in the tournament, and yet, they were able to bring the title of champion, the best result of all. I am always being favored by Raidou-dono” (Rembrandt)

[That was their ability. Please watch them tomorrow. I don’t think I will be able to go after all]

“… The Merchant Guild will probably question you strictly about your company’s circulation of goods. They are even suspecting that you have connections with the demon race. You should have some sort of proof, or prepare a fit amount of gold and calm it down with money; you will have to think about your counter-measure precisely. If there’s anything I can do…” (Rembrandt)

Proof huh. Don’t have anything like that. There’s the method of having Tomoe or Shiki place hypnotic suggestions on them, but it won’t solve the root of the problem.
Also, the circulation of goods in our company?
Not only the Gold Highway, we don’t even use the normal highways. We use the route via Asora, a method that can’t be obstructed.
But this world doesn’t use teleportation as a general method of transportation. Because the success rate is low. If I were to say that we are using a teleportation mean that is 100% successful, they will obviously demand me to share the technique, the aria of it. If that happens, then the country taking scene wouldn’t be strange.

I remember the words I said to Tomoe when we were spectating.

[You are already doing plenty enough Rembrandt-san. It’s alright. We will take care of it]

“I see. It was unnecessary worry. Well then, I will excuse myself. I want to at least congratulate my daughters before they go to sleep” (Rembrandt)

[Have a safe trip. Sleep well]

“Yeah, same for you. Good night, Raidou-dono” (Rembrandt)

Rembrandt-san returns to praise Sif and comfort Yuno.

Tomorrow is the team battles, so they are probably already sleeping. In that case, would he wake them up? I don’t think he would.

“Lime, you are here right?” (Makoto)

“Yes” (Lime)

“Just in case, watch over Rembrandt-san’s return. If there’s any strange presence, shift with someone else, and follow it” (Makoto)

“Understood” (Lime)

I have left the students in Shiki and Akua’s hands.

Yareyare, I am asking everyone work that’s not related to the business huh.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

It was a shocking tournament.

Several students that were not that much different from the others in the beginning of the year, showed power that overwhelmed not only classmates, but also upperclassmen.
A student that, even when she had ability, was absent from the Academy for a long time because of health issues and recently returned. A student that entered because of scholarship but was in no way top-class.
And those two fought for the place of champion this year.

When the school festival is open for exhibition, the library is closed. And of course, my work as a librarian is also in break, so I went to watch the tournament that is the main event of the festival.

I once again thought this.

Raidou, Kuzunoha Company.

It’s that. That is the reason of this storm. And also, my hope. Currently, he is still not even marked by the upper stratum of the academy.

If he were to help, I am sure that the frontline Limia and Gritonia maintain would push north in an instant, and the recovery of Kaleneon would become a realistic objective.

He was able to make those students grow that much in such a short amount of time after all.

Soon after the individual battles of the tournament finished, I stand up from my seat and was about to return, but Raidou called me out.

He said that he wanted to talk with me.

I don’t know what he intended, but if it is an invitation from him, I can’t refuse. I readily consented and asked for the meeting time.

The time he set could be considered late at night.

At that time, I enter his store through the back door and head to his room at the second floor. He told me that he will be in his room, so I could enter whenever I wanted.

… No matter what he asks of me, I intend to accept it.

“Raidou-sensei, its Eva. Is it okay to enter?” (Eva)

After knocking, I wait for his response. Well, even if I say so, he can’t speak in common language. The characters of ‘enter’ appear on the door, and the lock is opened with magic.

I enter.

My relationship with him is, honestly speaking, a relationship where I am in a pretty disadvantageous position. I am wishing a lot from him, and yet, he said that he didn’t wish anything from me.

It was okay to stay seated when receiving me, but Raidou went through the trouble of standing and greeting me. Even though it would be acceptable for me if he acted haughtier.

[I am sorry for calling you this late. Today all my employees are out and I am the only one here you see]

Alone.

Those words increase my tension a bit. Could it be, he really called me with those intentions?

If it really turns out the way I am thinking, it would be a desirable development. I will finally be able to fulfill something he wishes for. I would be able to repay him.

“If it’s Raidou-sensei that’s calling, I don’t care what time it is” (Eva)

[Please stop]

“Congratulations for the victory of your student in today’s individual battles. After that it was pretty hectic you know? They were asking who the one who trained them was” (Eva)

[I just helped their talent bloom. It wasn’t the achievement of anyone else]

“You are modest. And yet, the teachers that give them classes as well are all raising their hands and saying: ‘It’s me, It’s me!’ and causing much trouble. Of course, when they understand that they all have your class in common, the point of the spear will face sensei though” (Eva)

Even when I congratulated him for Sif Rembrandt’s victory, he didn’t show any pride.
He just said that it is the student’s talent. It has been half a year since spring. In just that amount of time, they were able to show a growth that can’t be considered just doubled, and there’s no doubt that it was thanks to him.

If any of the four major powers knew of this, they would definitely come to recruit him. With a far better offer than being a temporary teacher. If Raidou were to accept that offer, my interactions with him will decrease. But, for some strange reason, I don’t think that will happen.
He will most likely not affiliate with any country no matter what favorable conditions they put out. There’s no definite reason for this thought of mine, but that’s how I feel. It may be something borned from our short association.

[For the sake of avoiding that from happening, please try not to say anything unnecessary, okay?]

“Of course. I won’t do anything that would detriment sensei” (Eva)

[And well, about why I called you today…]

Here it comes.

With a composed smile, I wait for his next words.

[Before that, please keep this a secret from Ruria as well. Promise me that you will keep this just between you and me]

Even Ruria?

Well, I don’t think this is something that I would be able to tell my little sister Ruria.

I nod.

[Well then]

“!!”

He beckons me, and as if being careful that other people don’t see it, he writes in small characters.

I involuntarily gulp.

That is…

The proposal that Raidou denoted…

Was a content that I was unable to predict, something that blew away everything I previously thought of.

It was a proposal that was so shocking that it almost made me forget about the madness inside of me.

“Sensei, no, Raidou-san. Are you serious about this?” (Eva)

[There’s no joke here. I will give you a deferral of two days. I will hear your answer the day after tomorrow, at this time]

“The day after tomorrow?!” (Eva)

[Yeah. It would be the same even if you think about it for long right? It is also because of my circumstances as well. That’s all the business I had. It is already late, so if you don’t have any tasks to do after, please rest in one of our free rooms]

No way. Is he telling me to decide something so important in only two days?
Moreover, leaving it a secret from my little sister?

I was looking forward to tomorrow’s team battles.

But I already don’t care about it anymore. This is not the time to be spectating matches.
I even forgot about my plan of seducing Raidou if push comes to shove. I borrow one room and end up passing a sleepless night.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

At Gotetsu’s back store.

After lending a room to Eva-san, I went out to meet with her little sister Ruria.

Even in this late of a time, Gotetsu is still in business. As usual, they are also in operation today.

[Sorry for coming at this time]

“If it’s Raidou-san, I don’t mind. But sorry, because I have been working every day till late, the fatigue has been accumulating a bit. Is it okay if you make it short?” (Ruria)

[Yeah, I will finish it fast. Ruria, keep this a secret from Eva-san. You definitely have to. There’s something I want you to decide on]

…….

“E-Eeeeehh?!” (Ruria)

[The day after tomorrow, I will come to hear your answer. I am sorry for coming at this late of a time]

“The day after tomorrow?! Wai-, Raidou-san?! Raidou-saaan?! He is serious right? That person is not the type that jokes around much. I can’t go to sleep now. If it was going to turn out like this, Raidou-san could have at least left an energy drink~~” (Ruria)

Tomorrow, no matter how I explain to the Merchant Guild, more lies and troubles will appear. Even so, as long as I have made one lie, I can’t make it as if the lie never happened.

It was no good to just leave things superficially. If that’s the case, I should just…

Inside of me, a thought that would affect this world heavily has been settled.

  1. wooohooo!!! another fast chapter thanks!!

    i vomment first before reading yhis chap cos im bored waiting! thanks again!

    1. Not even Spoiler-san’s going to tell you. This is too big. It’s not one of my usual teaser spoilers, it can only be said in full detail. So Spoiler-san cannot tell you. And Spoiler-san will throw people under Bus-kun if they say it, this is something that is going to be revealed soon enough.

      1. Guild: give us all your info and trade or will go and destroy your store!!!
        MC: OH really? Fite me m8 (ง ͠° ͟ل͜ ͡°)ง

        bAd EngLish S0RRY

        1. Why do you think all the people I’ve thrown under Bus-kun are still around? They all have divine protection. However… it doesn’t mean that they don’t still get hospital bills.

    2. Raido,world changer with his plan and i only said this
      it’s involve everything even something that is unexpected (was that to much? or not?)

    3. My money is that he is just gonna be truthful. Something like: ‘Demon race? Yes, I have connections with them. I’ve even spoken to a general and will be saying “hey” to the demon lord too. My goods? We use an exclusive 100% teleportation network to go all over? You want to burn me as a traitor to humanity for associating with the demons and want my network? Well, myself and my companions have the equivalent military power of a global cataclysm, so if you have any complaints, come at me bro.’ Then he’ll probably use logic to be a diplomatic intermediary, or something. He likely said something along these lines to Eva, “let’s negotiate with them for your land back.”

  2. Well, thank you again Reigo-senpai for another great translation. Better than my method to read this the first time. And since it was my fault that I didn’t reserve first for Firo this, I can’t really complain about post times.

    Now for the review. Guys, reread this chapter seriously. What he’s wanting to talk to the sisters about is big. And don’t bother asking Spoiler-san, he will not tell you. All questions will be ignored. It’s not over Truck-kun, I have many ways to deal with him. This is something that’s so huge that I cannot even allow myself to spoil. As for the merchant guild thing, let’s just say you will wanna slap some people. Not saying what happens, this is too close to the actual events that spoiling won’t do. Unlike the one who’s gonna die anyway. No, not Merchant Guild person, they live. And as I said before, I’m going to ignore any questions if pressed about details. Spoiler-san has to keep some things held back after all.

      1. I will only answer with this, not telling. If you really wanna know ahead of time, look through the incoherent clumps of text that Google Translate does when it translates the originals. I will only say this one more time, not telling.

    1. Honestly, this arc has been garbage. I don’t care how much you hype it up – there’s no real direction and the author is trying to make a mystery out of it. It’s not getting me hyped up at all, but the opposite. I’m on the verge of dropping this entire LN.

      Even though it started out so nicely lately it has been going downhill really hard.

      1. There’s an old saying, “Things always look darkest before the dawn”. That means for things to get better, they get worse. Yeah, I will admit that even with what I said the hype isn’t doing it for some people. However, Spoiler-san will make an exception to what he said as you didn’t really press me or ask anything. It does get better in the arc after this one. Trust me, things do get better after the festival arc. And there is a small arc about the aftermath, but I cannot say what it is. Just give it a few more chapters before dropping, alright?

  4. Worst cliffhanger to date it’s to the point that you can call it being cheated or even being trolled.

    1. one that comes to mind is probably one of the chapters during the fight that lead to matoko making that lake, Also I think the chapters around when shiki joined were pretty hard since we were debating what would happen to a skeleton that formed a contract… A lot of fun speculation like would he get gender swapped was being tossed around…

    2. It’s not the cliff that bothers me here but the general direction of the LN. It has been going downhill really hard.

  5. Thanks for the chapter!!
    And welp will Raidou just say that he will kill the godess or say that he doesnt care if they are hyuman, demu-human or demons he will do bussiness with them?…… I hope is the former.

  6. It’s so nice reading this in English, *_/ Thanks ! /_*

    Caught up with the raws a bit ago, I won’t spoiler anything but here, have some decals (8/59) in no particular order:

    Eagle
    The bladder, not by way of very good mood.
    ‘Cause I know twilight?
    “Wakasama, please click here.”
    Raido seemed to have been interested in the buttocks.
    buttocks and marriage
    buttocks or let’s go Raido
    evil seaweed

    By decals I mean funny things from GG (google gibbrish(mistranslations)), that do not mean what you think they mean, I won’t say I understand everything but using TTS (Japanese side(waay too much anime)), I think I got a slightly better understanding than without it.

    1. bing translator for Chinese novels is pretty funny. There is one novel I read with it, and a lot of it translates into World of Warcraft terms.

      1. Yes, ” Eagle ” is Tomoes way of saying me / I,
        ” buttocks ” would be/is ” -dono “,
        ” like ” would/is ” -sama “.
        Those are the ones I can remember ontop of my head, hopefully someone other than me find them alteast slightly amusing, next few ‘decals’ would be on the next chapter, unless Reigokai-sama says no.

  7. damn!!!!! another 2 days for wait its not fair!!!! just how many chapters left for this arc to finish ? i just not feel well waiting for each chapters and a story i dont want to see yet appearing damn

    i give up il start to wait 2 weeks before reading releases. since its getting quite depressing

    still i also want to know what will happen on merchants meeting and what he offer to eva and ruria, i somehow can guess but still cant be sure, sadly judging the advances of this novel go i guess next chapter its tomoe or mio POV then a useless story of someone , then POV of demons , then POV of the merchants plannings , Next school battle / another 7 chapters of POV then demon story -_- thats how have been going since this school arc started

    1. At least it is not eating-bath-story-story-pov-eating-bath-eating-eating-ffffffiiiilllllllllllleeeeerrrr-story-pov-bath

    2. It helps if you are reading other novels with regular releases. Keeps you distracted from thinking about your favorites. Heres my list of what im reading atm, I haven’t gone through it in awhile, but I think a few of them have pretty regular releases. and they are all pretty good reads.
      https://www.mangaupdates.com/mylist.html?id=77745&list=user8
      I do recommend that anything that looks like a Chinese novel, you read with an ad-blocker or on a tablet/phone. For some reason the sites hosting Chinese novels have like major ad traffic and regularly crashes my browser.

    1. Nah why would he? He doesn’t really want to help them nor the humans, all he wants to do is do business and get the anti goddess stuff other then that he really see’s them as a nuisance along with the Hyumans.

      1. He did…
        His “Side” is his other dimension land populated by Orcs, Dwarves, Lizards, Spiders, Monkey Demons, Bird/bat people, Medusas, and pseudo-fairies (I don’t remember if they were actually let in or not)
        But they are a secret so no one even knows to count them yet.

  8. OH YEASHJ CHAPTER OUT!!!
    scroll down…
    scroll down…
    scrolll down…
    scro…..

    Wait, wait, cliff???? WHAT!@!$#$% wAHAAAYYY%^TTT#%$#%$#$ ARRRRGGGGG NUUUUUOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    table flip…

      1. I thought that at first, but why tell both sisters and also have them keep it quiet from each other?

        That part doesn’t make sense, some sort of two timing is supposed to happen in some way, shape or form.

        A situation where both sisters are interrogated and they realized he said the same thing to both of them.

        Hence why I think it has to do with a marriage proposal, for what objective? I don,t know thou…

  9. Thanks for the chapter!

    Okay, I have a theory, or a partial one I guess:

    A marriage proposal, why two time then? As a way to create a “scandal” is all I can think of.

    1. I think its more like one of those situations where hes trying to find a mole. So he tells a bunch of people different things and tells them to keep it a secret, and which ever secret appears compromised certain parties will act. I expect that he expects that one of the two(or more if there are more people he did this with that we haven’t read about) will tell somebody what he said and expose someone by forcing htem to move.

  10. There, there, fellas. Let’s take a step back and just change our perspective a little.
    Instead of a cliffhanger, we should view this as a Plot Device of Anti-Spoiler Tension Stimulus.

    That said…I really hope they don’t gloss over the team battle, since the flow implies Makoto will be dealing with much more important things at that time.

    1. Unless some major cheating takes place, demons attack or the shitty hero makes a move I doubt the team battle will see significant, or even any screen time.

      Raidou is our MC and he seems to be about to make a big move, the focus will be mostly if not solely on him.

  11. And so, I wonder what did he tell to the two of them… LOL it’s strange to witness a scheming Makoto. Of course, a scheme that comes from his own volition.

    Thanks for the chapter!! :3

  12. Uwaaaaaaa that secrecy! I can’t really make a proper guess of what’s to come next this time. Author-san u did great on making it more interesting.
    Thanks for the chapter!

  13. Thanks for the chapter.

    I wonder if the other merchants noticed the, fairly major, problem with his distribution method. Namely that he doesn’t have one. He has a shop that restocks daily but never has carts or wagons show up to deliver goods, or even drop off raw materials if he was going to make it all in-store. He goes from sold out at the end of the day to restocked the next day with no shipments of any kind.

    It might have not been noticable in the beginning but after he had been doing buisness for awhile they would want to learn his distribution channels, only to find that he NEVER recieves products to restock with, it just shows up out of nowhere everyday.

    1. Well they probably have notice that , in business these type of spying is very normal and makoto think thats dirty. He’s so naive taking action without thinking consequence, he think it will be ok as long as he will able to get along with them and lowing prince of goods with earth sky difference ofcourse other merchant who is losing profit try to take him dow. In business only profit talk there is no friendship, i hope he realise before someone fuck him up.

  14. some country of some fallen noble girls in some academy got raidou intention…saying I’ll get back ahem country do bisness with me…

  15. From the arc name, my guess would be the revival of kaleneon.

    That’s why raidou ask tomoe if she wants the 4 season in asora. And in this chapter he said he remember something he told tomoe during the tournament.

    Maybe the fortress tomoe said before is in kaleneon? A bit of a stretch though..

  16. Rei in future would strongly appreciate a bold warning at top of post that clearly states that chapter ends with a cliff hanger and that it will be resolved in X chapters, so that people who don’t want to be kept in unnecessary suspense can wait till the resolution chapter is out and read it all at once.

  17. raidou to elder sister. I am going to make my kingdom on ur land and name u queen. raidou to younger sister. I am going to make my kingdom in ur land and name u number 2. Mio went nuts and ate number 2. raidou went super sayan mode? but I wonder if victim was killed by hyumans wont raidou go tame demon lord and be demon god?

  18. I really want Makoto to use Asora’s military power… I’s love to see the faces of the demeons in front of a unit of mist lizards with Arke suport…
    Anyway, it’s a shame I feel like this novel has forbidden romance…
    BTW: Winter is coming!… To Asora.

    As always, thanks for the translation!

      1. I think the arkes were still stronger, like a “boss battle”, but there are only 4 arkes and more than 20 forest ogres…
        The forest ogres were more like a special forces or ninjas, while the arkes… don’t need the hiding skills XD

        Also, there are the mist lizardmen, Akua sais that she can win over one of them, but in group battles, is not known the result.

        There is some king of Asora’s fighting tournament, where they make a list of the strongest and also there will be more migrations in the future, when a sea is created…

        For now, the only clear think is that nothing is fixed and everything will be progressing ^^

  19. Thanks for the chapter. For the guys in suspense because of this chapter, all I can say is you all have to wait a few more chapters till what he told the two sisters are revealed. From my understanding of the google translated raws it will take atleast 4+ chapters. Unless Reigo-kun decides to skip the two flashback chapters.

    Note: If my comment above is too much of a spoiler, kindly erase it.

  20. Oh, those teachers want to take credit for Raidou’s hard work? Fine, let them.

    When they get hired and are told to produce the same results or even better in half a year, they’ll be sh*tting bricks.

    Welp, Makoto needs to learn that not everyone is gonna be all “fine and dandy” with his thinking of getting along with everyone. After all, he just barged in with highly valuable items and selling them for almost the same price as his other competitors. Of course they are gonna be pissed with the new blood stealing their customers (hence the merchant guild debacle).

    If he really wants to choose being independent, then he must have:
    1.) A steady supply of goods (which he has, but his enemies don’t know that).
    2.) An army to safeguard every store he plans on establishing (which are on standby in Asora, still need training.)
    3.) A presence that screams “Not giving a fuck” to any organization or country that tries the intimidation tactic (Hopefully in the near future).

    I just hope this lesson doesn’t come with asking for one of his acquaintances as the price for it.

  21. Oh, if I’m guessing correctly, I can finally understand why Eva is in the story and why she’s been pushing Makoto to help her reclaim her homeland…

    A way out for Makoto, huh.

    1. Don’t know. Maybe he’s trying to find a leak?

      I just hope the development that I’m guessing will occur. He’ll protect his lies with another lie… I think people would get it if they think about things a little more. I just hope the four seasons is there, then we’ll get some action.

  22. heres a plot hints from some chap hope theres actually a flow in here:

    1. makoto ask tomoe if she like the for season. since tomoe found a spot somewhere in the demon country
    2. makotos having a pent up feeling cos of lying and said something like “to cover a lie, make a lie”.
    3. since eva told everything about herself and whats her goal, and seems makotos gonna use that evas goal i think?
    4. makotos asking the sisters with different goal and them not knowing their one request made by him, so you could say ones a decoy and ones a spy?

    well just hyphothesis with the chap have read previously

    1. just wondered why he hasnt used root instead since hes a good card to used but i bet the pay wont be to hes liking or just that hes the type who do things on his own thay doesnt want to have a debt to pay but reverse instead?

    2. oh the number 3 means that the sister are gonna make a move on their own without each other knowing its the request of makoto

  23. Thanks for the chapter~!

    Lucky I don’t read ahead on this novel, so I can speculate somewhat; for something that is big enough to put those 2 girls speechless, then I can only think of this : “Kuzunoha Company gets our goods directly from Kaleneon. tehepero~”

  24. I was really suspicious about what was in this chapter with the title being as it is lol, but now something interesting is going to happen 😀

    I can’t believe this entire time I’ve been reading this on my xbox ._.

  25. what raidou wrote was…. ” please join my harem ” , nah but most likely he is inviting them to join kuzunoha family or something near those lines

  26. AAAAAAARRRRRRRGH! That last line, that last line! That was the GREATEST CLIFFHANGER UNTIL NOW!

    Thank you for the chapter! Next plz! Right now! XDDDDDDD

    1. Okay, thinking about it seriously… the human countries are starting to piss Makoto off. The 4 seasons of Asora, which Tomoe wants, depend on cooperation with the demon race. The 2 sisters want to recover their lost territory, which is also on ther hands. So! It might be really off the target, but maybe Makoto is going to leave the hyuman side completely?

      1. Leaving the human side is absolutely not something he would do, but… Would Makoto possibly try to create a country where humans and demons coexisted? I feel like he might suggest that to Rona and see how she reacts later.

  27. Im not liking this at all, Makoto doesn’t understand the concept of competition for business. Even in our world business is always a matter of competition or way of hammering the market. “To coexist?” What kind of BS is that coming from a person who open an “All Items Available” shop? You not selling something that other shop couldn’t provide. But you are selling items of the same product the other merchant are selling with a better quality value. Makoto you are literally crushing other business and you are questioning why they want to make a move on you?. My god, You are not making an utter sense by saying “coexist” when you crushing them with better quality goods. Seriously Makoto you should just give up on business if you think peace is possible within a community that is striving to survive in the same job.

    1. thats a very wrong way of thinking, first of all makoto got the people called “eldwas” them called greatest blacksmith, they can create either flame swords to almighty blades and they keep on improving theyre work that can now be labeled as relics.

      second if he sell those it will happened like what happened in his asora but much worse since he predicted it, he prevented them to make high end swords.

      third he already just selling an all heal medicine and he already became a target if he sell much worse than than then you know what i mean.

      and last one hes in the world of that “bug” where their sense of values are total different and not going his favour on what he do anytime soon.

      better read the whole novel mate you moght understand his standings

      1. Actually, OP is correct. Makoto isn’t really well-versed in business — that’s why he’s thankful that Shiki is in his employ. Makoto’s way of thinking as a merchant is really naive because he isn’t one. Your counterarguments don’t really touch upon the point that OP was talking about. In other words, your post is fundamentally irrelevant.

      2. Your reply not making any sense to his comment, before telling him to read other novel first read his comment again.

    2. Indeed. If it wasn’t for his capable underlings he would fail miserably in this industry. Some people can say he has “Japanese mentality; that wants peace and whatnot.” all they want but, in being a merchant, it is plain as day, a competition. It’s supposedly common sense, be it here or there. I doubt he had never seen a Cafe or Ramen shop competing to attract customers before. Not to mention, his goods are practically on a whole new level and has monopoly of it. And to make it worse, he sells it dirt cheap. Killing other establishments, or at least garnering animosity even if it wasn’t because of the Hopelace nobles. If it’s in his original world, his shop would have been subjected for questioning a long time ago already, since there is a “SRP” that is being followed to regulate market prices.

      I literally had to pause for a while when he said he wanted to “coexist” when he’s the one destroying, not only common sense, the balance. It made me question the point of having a Merchant Guild if a merchant can just arbitarily price his/her goods way below/high the norm for that country or city.

    3. They have mentioned multiple times that he limits his stock for this very reason, and his high end potions have already been revealed to the church, who realize the ingredients used are difficult to normally obtain. While it’s true he is offering products that are better than the competition, he is also doing so with limited amounts so as not to flood or destroy the market.

      This was why they turned people in line away that one day and gave them vouchers. Other merchants obviously aren’t going to like his competition, but he shouldn’t be standing out so much that they’ll consider anything more than envious harassment.

      1. I’m just going to think you have no experience in Sales or Marketing industry.

        “limiting” your stock does not get you any friends. Or will people of the same trade thank you for not selling goods that you obviously hold monopoly to.

        revealing his recipe for potions doesn’t mean squat especially if their expense exceeds their gains. Also, it’s limited to the Church.
        Did you seriously just say that.

        Eeh… I don’t really want to elaborate on what Merchants are. Or what they think about a product or goods that is exclusive to one company. Makoto already mentioned other competition are trying to reproduce some of his fruits, so they are removing some seeds for some.

        If he had made some connections of the same trade other than Rembrandt, it would make sense that he dreamt of co-existing with other merchants. It also involves sharings his sources.

  28. He needs a documented history and a country of origin. The sisters used to be royalty of a country that no longer politically exists. One of the sisters talks about lies and such. I dunno, seems very straightforward from where my mind is looking at it.

    1. Sure we do. Because he’s an arrogant and privelaged asshole who flaunts his heritage to get to toady to him.

      As for why he was engaging Ruria, it could be any number of petty reasons. It’s unlikely he knows she’s a fallen noble (as that’s a well kept secret), but it’s quite possible he hit on her and decided to be a tool when she refused. That’s probably the most flattering possibly, as it’s equally likely that he just likes fucking with waitresses and people in the service industry.

      Regardless all his actions have shown him to be King of the Small Fry, so I wouldn’t assume him to be anything but pathetically petty and pompous.

  29. Thanks for the chapter desu~

    I wonder if it’s just me… but even though Raidou the one who propose whateveritis, the effect of it will be greater than what he imagine?

  30. If it’s Raidou, the chances are low, but they’re not zero. I can’t wait to see what happens next. Thank you so much for posting that cliffhanger so quickly. It will make me grin for the whole weekend. Ah, I’m also looking forward to the group competitions so much.

  31. Well that was weird… and short. I don’t even know what to say. And apparently, it was the comment section that made it appear longer, I was mislead lel

    Thanks for the chapter…

    1. Not that I have anything against short chapters. I meant, there was a lot, and I mean a lot, of Author being forcefuly vague again in this chapter. So I guess it was only appropriate to end this chapter immediately instead building, stacking, more materials for the future.

  32. The scroll is so long but as usual comment of expectation.
    One thing to say about this chp just like it’t title.
    What kind of development will betray our expectation?

    1. The scroll is long because paging for the comments was turned off after one posted asked about it. Instead we now have really long pages that are mostly comments and its hard to tell how long the actual chapter is when you open the page.

  33. thx for the fast and great chapter! also i tried reading the raw using google translate now my head hurts and its making me go to sleep early! damn i made a mistake

  34. i regret use google translate to read Chapter 127 *i cant help it i want to know (T_T)” * it was pain in my eye and huge Headache but i know this our main hero is going to dark side…or at lest try to kill someone …….i think (O.O)”

    1. Nope, both wrong!

      “If its raidou, the chances of growing a pair and getting laid are really low lol(w)

  35. I think he’s going to just conquer that land, where his parents and Eva and Ruria used to live, and declare it a neutral territory, maybe something like a completely independent and not affiliated with anyone trade town, a hub, to coexist with all races.

  36. hey about that “death”, is there revival?

    oh and fuck google translate $#@&*!

    i want to read the fights… but s***!!

    want to see some op makoto moves but f*** google!! i aint understanding one bit

    (tried to read the chaps but it feels like a scratching nails on a blackboard)

    the question above is just curiousity, i really want to read some intense battles

    1. this cliffhang-san really choking me snd tried read raws but end up a mindgrain.. “sigh” want to see another epic makoto fight like with sophia and lancer where makoto thinks only small after effects but ends up a big mess.
      hehehe… and im crossing my finger when the day makoto slaps the bitch goddess, well i think that will happen in the end of the novel

      JUST ONCE!!! SLAP THAT BITCH!! IT WILL FEEL GOOD!!

    2. need to take note that cliff hang makes ones hunger for more and may end up going for raws which end up much more miserable….

      damn i need a drink, im wasted

  37. Error fix: pick interest should be pique interest. This isn’t the first LN I have read using the wrong word here, but it happens enough in this one to bother me when reading. You cannot pick up something like interest, you can only stimulate it, or pique it.

  38. I want him at some point to just slowly take his rings off while making eye contact with someone. They’d have an ainz ooal gown moment and puke rainbows at the massive amounts of mana that tries to swallow everything.
