Chapter 276: Mio’s Weakness

Mio’s attack cuts through the air.

It didn’t hit again.

Suppressing his presence is probably the special ability of Rokuya and some sort of job skill in the assassin category.

(He is good to a bothersome level-desu wa. I have never seen a more perfected hit-and-run that utilizes evasion and blind spots this well.) (Mio)

With another sigh she has been doing for who knows how many times already, Mio is impressed by the technique of Rokuya who she is fighting against.

At times, she would catch his presence or she catch his figure with her eyes, but her attacks end up being avoided like just now.

And yet, opposite to this, Rokuya has been dealing powerful attacks to her from every direction.

At core, Mio does not place importance in defense and evasion.

Or more like, she doesn’t need to do it.

And so, the strategy of hit-and-run of Rokuya fits perfectly in a bad way for her.

But…

(Well, the damage that I am receiving is slower compared to the speed I am recovering at, so there’s no point though. What’s strange is that there’s no way this rude and outspoken man wouldn’t notice.) (Mio)

Mio had shot a serious spell at first, but after that, she has been dealing with Rokuya without being serious anymore.

It is true that he is a problematic opponent to hit attacks at, but once one attack actually connects, the match will be completely decided, is how she thinks.

There’s most likely not even a 1% chance of Mio’s attacks hitting Rokuya.

But Mio doesn’t think of that percentage as small.

She understands that there’s no need to be in a hurry.

As long as it is not going against the instructions of Makoto, it is fine to do as she always does.

And then, after dulling the movements of Rokuya, she will give him a lesson.

Since he is immortal, it shouldn’t be a problem if she were to release her restrain a little bit.

Mio was thinking in this way.

It looks as if she is calm…and angry.

In other words, the same old Mio. She is operating as normal.

“Shadow stroll, [Skywalk]; domain of Gods [Chronos Filing].” (Rokuya)

(That’s most likely the skill that makes it almost impossible to grasp his presence. The other is probably something that increases the reaction speed of his body.) (Mio)

Rokuya showed up in a slightly faraway location, and then, when he utilized his skill again, his figure disappears again and Mio is unable to catch his presence anymore.

From there, he uses enhanced skills and attacks in conjunction. This is a pattern that has been repeated countless times already.

Shortly thereafter, the presence of Rokuya is caught in the perception of Mio. A bit fast.

Mio continues sighing as she shoots a darkness bullet.

“[Counter Death Scythe]!” (Rokuya)

(As I thought. Eh?) (Mio)

“Fang that destroys the soul, [Soul Slaughter]!” (Rokuya)

It didn’t end with only the pattern that has been repeated countless times. When Mio showed an opening from her weariness, Rokuya closed the distance and hit her with the katar that had a dark purple blade.

The strongest attack until now had hit the side of Mio.

At the same time, a miasma that invites death spreads into her body and was eating away the magic power that was clad on Mio as well.

Mio has defeated several assassins already, but this attack is a first for her.

“Without taking your time in the attack that connected, you once again disappear. And it was quite the brutal technique.” (Mio)

Mio perceived something with her instinct and reflexively clampers up.

Right after, from her right shoulder she placed to cover up her right side, the same attack was dealt.

When she looks at that place, she could see Rokuya there.

She could see him, but there was not a single trace of his presence.

Even though she could see him, he wasn’t there.

A strange sensation was transmitted to Mio.

“[Enchant Poison, Ghoul Witch], [Enhance, Ogre]” (Rokuya)

“!!”

In that instant that felt as if it was a ‘oh crap’ moment, and the instant that felt as if she had been perplexed by a strange sensation, Mio, who had noticed the pattern of her opponent and saw Rokuya preparing his katars by crossing them together…smiled.

“Then…the equality of 4,000 lives turned to dust, [Wind of Destruction]” (Rokuya)

The figure of the assassin disappeared, and in place of that, a black mist passed by Mio.

“Finally brought it out. A combo attack and your trump card huh.” (Mio)

Several thousands of deadly attacks were assaulting the body of Mio.

And yet, Mio had received that attack without breaking that smile from her face and didn’t show any care about her kimono that was being steadily torn off.

“…After receiving that, this is your impression of it? Well well, you are far stronger than I expected.” (Rokuya)

Rokuya had returned to his usual atmosphere he had when he first met Makoto’s group and spoke.

Mio’s knees fell to the ground, but the blade storm didn’t allow her to fall down, and yet, he spoke in such a calm manner. In a sense, this manner of act was scary in itself.

“…”

As expected, there was no response from Mio.

“This attack is the one with the strongest power I currently have at hand.If you were to come to our territory and had twice the power I had assumed you had, this should have been plenty enough to deal with you guys, but as expected, it just won’t go as planned huh.” (Rokuya)

‘Good grief’ is what Rokuya says as he holds his head with his hand and shrugs his shoulders.

Utilizing skills continuously, moving continuously, and attacking continuously; there’s no way he wouldn’t get tired.

That’s also one of the reasons why Mio is not growing impatient.

Because she understood that the one who will be running out of stamina first will be the opponent.

And then…the storm stops.

He thought that she would fall, but Mio simply stood up like nothing and patted her body from up to down.

“!!!”

A black kimono instantly covered the body of Mio.

There was not a single trace of a cut, and there were no signs of the skin color change caused by poison.

It was all like when she first got teleported to this place.

The shock of Rokuya couldn’t be helped.

“…Even if you catch me by surprise, even if you shower me with attacks, even if you hit me with a finishing move; your attacks won’t reach me.” (Mio)

“They were reaching…is what I thought though…” (Rokuya)

“Those splendid katars of yours, or more like, your blades in general and the several types of poisons you used won’t leave a single wound in my body.” (Mio)

“…It is just as you say.” (Rokuya)

“The compatibility is good, don’t you think? Is the confidence of that big mouth of yours still remaining?” (Mio)

The words of Mio continue on.

That’s right.

From the very beginning, Mio had the intentions of watching all that Rokuya had to bring out.

She had decided that she would receive them all and laugh at him.

And after that, she would punish him.

With the carefully selected lineup of punishments she has repeated against Shiki and the small number of rude ones at Asora.

Going into details, it would be: scouring, mopping, rotary cutting, and pocky; those ones are settled, and any others are added on her whim.

That’s how Mio’s plan goes.

“…Yeah, that hasn’t changed. From within that group, you were the one I was the most compatible against. Today, with these conditions, I have confidence that I will definitely not lose.” (Rokuya)

“What did you say?” (Mio)

Mio reflexively asked back.

The eyes of Rokuya did show fatigue, but there was no despair.

Even though he had shown his trump card, he didn’t show any signs of giving up.

“After fighting you, my instincts whispered to me that maybe your objective was buying time, you see. And so, I thought that instead of the objective planned at first, it would be better to defeat the Calamity Spider.” (Rokuya)

“…”

How displeasing, is what Mio straightly felt from this.

Just like Rokuya said, this battle has way too many advantages on one side. Even so, there’s no doubt the strong ones here are Mio, Tomoe, and Makoto.

And yet, this old adventurer standing in front of her was not trying to oppose her, but defeat her.

This isn’t something that Mio could forgive.

“But, even when I tried to analyze the many battles going around while attacking you, I was unable to grasp any decisive conclusion. The former Superior Dragon, Tomoe-dono, having a tough fight, and on the contrary, the group of that dwarf is proceeding with the battle predominantly; both of those things were out of my expectations, and those are indeed key factors, but it definitely doesn’t show what’s on the other side of the door.” (Rokuya)

“…That’s why, even if you had to take the method that required time, you were thinking of defeating me first and then join in the information gathering yourself.” (Mio)

“Yeah, that’s how it would be. Or more like, it has already been done.” (Rokuya)

“Are you…referring to the poisons that are combining inside of me? If that’s what you mean, that’s quite the overly optimistic preparation you had.” (Mio)

“By no means. The poison was just a decoy. The weakness I am sure you have is not related to poison. Or rather, poison wouldn’t work on you at all. In the first place, for a long time…the Calamity Spider has had no weaknesses.” (Rokuya)

Rokuya lifted both of his hands as if stating his surrender.

If someone is able to obtain a piece of the hard carapace, thread, fangs, claws, or poison of the Calamity Spider, they would be able to buy a house with it.

All of them are high grade ingredients, and at the same time, they are the proof that the Calamity Spider has conquered all the weaknesses a spider mamono has.

The Calamity Spider has no weaknesses.

Until now, there hasn’t been a single one who has been able to defeat it.

It is exactly because Rokuya has been in the know of the bad news that the Calamity Spider has brought about for longer than the normal adventurers that he is able to understand this fact to his very core.

“…”

“But, right now, you are Mio. Not a spider.” (Rokuya)

“What are you trying to say? Yo—Eh?!” (Mio)

“Your footing was neglected. Was it because you didn’t think of my attacks as a threat? Or maybe because you thought that combo attack was my trump card? Or it might be because you lowered your guard with the combining poisons? Whatever the case, you noticed way too late.” (Rokuya)

The state of affairs were affirming the words of Rokuya.

The footing of Mio was producing a faint light and several gears restrained the body of Mio.

Unknown if this was real or an illusion, it looked like some of those gears had melded with the body of Mio, and at times, they would make some sort of rough noise.

The gears that didn’t even reach ten, began to slowly rotate, and it seems that that movement was proving painful for her, her expression distorts into anguish.

Legs, arms, waist, shoulders, neck, chest…

Gears were enfolded around every part of Mio’s body.

This is the true trump card Rokuya aimed at Mio.

“This is…a type of restraining barrier huh. Moreover, it even generously adds pain! I don’t think this is the kind of skill an assassin would use, but no matter how powerful it is, to think you would use something like a barrier as a trump card against me.” (Mio)

“Just as you have guessed, this is not a skill from my guild or my job; it is an ability that only I can use in this world. Gears of fantasy, [Grim Tale Gear].” (Rokuya)

“Grim Tale?! I don’t care about the name. If this is your trump card, I will tear it down into pieces–!!” (Mio)

“No, you should listen. This ability can only be used on certain people of power, and as an assassin, it possesses an incredibly powerful effect.” (Rokuya)

“…It is true that this is something that even super specialized magicians wouldn’t be able to reach in their lifetime! Leaving aside if this would effective against me though!” (Mio)

Mio responded  to the words of Rokuya, but wasn’t complying to them.

The rotation of the gears was slowly but surely becoming slower.

It is also beginning to create creaking ear-piercing sounds.

This is proof that the barrier was clearly about to be destroyed.

“Therefore, there’s a particular restriction to those restrains.” (Rokuya)

“Res…triction?” (Mio)

“”If there’s someone who destroys this restrains with their own strength, the fantasy gears will provide a blessing.” (Rokuya)

“Fufufufu! What’s with that?! There’s nothing good for you! Using a power that’s too much for you; rather than calling it a restriction, it is more of a price!” (Mio)

“That’s right. It restrains the target physically and magically, and will slowly lead them to their death. The only way to get out of it would be to destroy all the gears while in a state of having your power restrained in all senses. It is a power that’s wasted on me.” (Rokuya)

“No matter how great it is, it is just a matter of time before it is destroyed! If this is all you have, it is time for your punishment, Rokuya. I won’t let you escape.” (Mio)

“You are truly scary. If you are able to destroy this, you will be released from all your bindings and be free.” (Rokuya)

“I see, that’s great to hear! After all, I will be able to teach you your own posi—- All the…bindings?” (Mio)

The words of Mio suddenly lose their heat.

It seems she noticed something.

Rokuya has already noticed.

No, his aim was that from the very beginning.

The weak point of, not the spider, but Mio… that is…

“All your bindings. Any kind of pact, restrain, restriction; all your bindings will be destroyed along with the fantasy gears.” (Rokuya)

“…Rokuya…you!!!” (Mio)

“Of course, it would be the same if you just have them bound again later. But, can you really throw that away with your own hands? The pact that is your bond between you and Makoto. The pact that led to being given the name Mio. The pact that was most likely the first one you have formed in your life.” (Rokuya)

“Fuh…!! Fuuuh…!!” (Mio)

“…It is true that Makoto-kun, who you treasure more than anything, is stronger than you. We wouldn’t be able to take him as hostage, and depending on the situation, he might even be more of a problem than you. We wouldn’t be able to use this kind of method as a weakness. But you… your love for Makoto-kun is excessive. To the point that you wouldn’t throw away a single thing he has given to you even if it cost you your life. That’s how much you love him. That’s a weak point. You can’t do something like throwing away the pact you have with him with your own hands. At the very least, at present, you can’t.” (Rokuya)

“!!!! !!!”

She increased the strength, but, showing an expression as if fearing the creaking sounds of the gears, she decreased her strength, and accepts the pain.

“Well then, stay like that for a while please. I will be going.” (Rokuya)

“…Quite…impressive. To think you had set up such a threat, I wouldn’t have expected it at all. But, even if I have given up on fighting back…these gears can’t kill me, you know? It only hurts a little.” (Mio)

“Having you stay there obediently is plenty enough.” (Rokuya)

“And also, Rokuya, I won’t let you go anywhere. The first spell I shot, do you know what it was?” (Mio)

“The first spell you shot? Ah, the one you used to catch me?” (Rokuya)

“No-desu wa. In a radius of around 300 meters, I made it so noooo one can leave. If it’s Waka-sama and Tomoe-san, they would be able to leave in given time but, I wonder if you would be able to accomplish that?” (Mio)

“?!”

Rokuya opens his eyes wide.

“At any rate, it would be troublesome if you were to escape, so only that one spell, I placed serious power when activating it. The effective time of this ability is not eternal, right? It is a powerful ability after all. If the gears disappear naturally…let’s go for a round 2. I won’t lose next time. The punishment is still on hold, okay? Ufufufufufufu~~~.” (Mio)

“Tch! A draw was one of the worst developments within the possible scenarios! At the very least, I have to silence the group of that dwarf!” (Rokuya)

Glancing at the unmoving Mio for a second, Rokuya’s figure disappears.

Only the small laugh filled with anger of Mio remained in that place, and Rokuya was unable to get out from the space that Mio had setup there.

Mio was unable to move because of the gears’ restrain; Rokuya was sprinting at full speed in search for a seam in Mio’s spell.

In this space where the battle had finished, there’s currently no deaths.

* * *

“Ah, so that’s how it is.”

“…You are interested in the battle between Rokuya-san and Mio-san? Sorry, I can’t show you due to Rokuya-san’s request.” (Hitsuna)

“Eh?”

“Ara, did I misinterpret that?” (Hitsuna)

“This is your territory anyways. Well, I understand that there’s a lot going on on your side. What I got just now……was your power, Hitsuna-san.” (Makoto)

“?!”

“You called it ‘Safety Zone’, right? You said so before but, it is certainly not an invincible space.” (Makoto)

…It is just slight but, I felt the emotions of rage from Mio.

It is a situation I didn’t expect.

Even so, in order to change the situation, I have to do something about this space first.

The analysis of it…is probably finished.

“Cutting off the attacks from the outside, and also deploying a space that prohibits fights inside. I see, it does sound like a power in an MMO. The condition for its activation is not a catalyst, but time.” (Makoto)

“…”

“It seems like this is the type that is tough on its effective time and cooldown time.” (Makoto)

“And Makoto-kun has an ability that can analyze our abilities? This might be out of expectations.” (Hitsuna)

“So, it looks like you can’t shorten the effective time from inside, but judging from its composition, I thought that maybe attacks from outside would manage to reduce the effective time.” (Makoto)

“!!”

The expression of Hitsuna changes.

If that expression was translated into words, it would be: ‘yeah, that’s right’.

Looks like she is the type that can’t hide things.

I feel like we can be friends.

I feel like we can do some relaxing trades.

“Uhm, Makoto-kun? Where did that mass of magic power, that was coming out from you, go?” (Hitsuna)

“Ah, are you talking about the thing I can bring out whenever I want?” (Makoto)

In the time she was completely concentrated in the amazing combination attack of the two adventurers against Tomoe, I utilized a blind spot she wouldn’t have been able to notice unless she stood up.

“Yeah yeah, that.” (Hitsuna)

“I was wondering if I could let it out from the Safety Zone, you see. So I stretched it a bit.” (Makoto)

“What did you say?!” (Hitsuna)

“And…you know…” (Makoto)

“…”

Hitsuna gulps.

But the answer had no mercy.

“I managed to let it out.” (Makoto)

It seems I myself can’t get out, but the Magic Armor was able to leave by squeezing through a part of the Safety Zone that was relatively far from me.

“Geh?!” (Hitsuna)

“And so, I will be taking my leave now.” (Makoto)

If possible, after assisting Tomoe and Mio, I would like to help out Beren and the others too.

By that time, we should be able to move the situation heavily.

We will achieve our objective while protecting everyone.

It is about time I make my move as well.

    1. I’m just imagining big blaring alarms and a Smash-esque text going:

      [Waka-sama is on the Move]

      …Possibly complete with Makoto’s really plain character design.

  1. Wow.. he’s going to piss off one that should’nt be pissed off… Mio… guess ragnarok wannabe assassin dude is going to regreat being an imortal…

    1. I’m sick today but reading this released me from the pain, albeit temporarily.

      I can’t say how I reacted to the translation, seeing that Mio got trapped by Rokuya (six nights, heh) was unexpected. I didn’t see that coming, neither did Makoto.
      … Okay, I was a bit mad at it but I don’t know how to explain. *Ouch, my tooth!*

      Thanks again for the fast translation.
      Gonna see the doctor now…

        1. Just normal food.. stuff ? Also, I brushed properly. Got swollen gum, with puss.. must’ve been somekind of infection post injury. A small cut could go nasty like that.
          Painful.

          Mio… I’m in pain when you’re in pain too.
          🙁

      1. A gentle touch from my niece the Thunderbird will numb the pain. Want me to call her?
        You can survive a hundred trillion volts of electricity right?

        1. He probably could’ve taken it when it was neutral damage as the Steel-type Truck, but now he’s classed changed to both a Water and Flying type. with quad-weakness

          It doesn’t matter how high level he is, I doubt he’d survive that.

  2. What the hell is this T_T today is full of blessing for me…Tsuki, world teacher, and maou machi in the middle of fight.
    AFK, praying for a while, thanks god for today.
    Oh, and thank you.

  3. I like Mio’s style. You don’t need defence and evasion when you’re invincible. Facetank everything like a boss.

    While that’s a musclehead mentality, she’s not dumb and still makes the necessary things right like trapping and agile fighter is always a good choice.

    Thanks Reigokai. Hopefully author can speed up his release pace

    1. The author might update her webnovel once a month. Around the end of each month.
      … but don’t put your hopes too high. There are such things to consider such as health, national holidays, writer’s block, etc.

  4. Thanks for the chapter!

    Lol, Mio and Rokuya both activated their trap cards. To give him credit, he’s just as smart as I expected him to be, latching onto Mio’s weakness while keeping the fight away form Makoto. But, just like we all expected, they gonna get rekt.

  5. I wonder if Mio will destroy those gears with her own hands. It seems unlikely with her current personality, but it would be an interesting development to break her bond with Makoto even temporarily before rebuilding it post battle.
    Thanks for the new chapter!

    1. I doubt it. I agree with Rokuya’s assessment of Mio.

      If Makoto gave her a necklace or something that turned out to drain her very lifeforce out, she’d rather die than let go of it. The only option out of this is if Makoto is the one that severs the bond, however temporarily.

      1. Moreover she doesn’t need to do anything against the barrier : It can’t kill her and it will will disappear soon… Like with an insect in a spider’s web, she will probably wait until he doesn’t have any stamina left…

        All he manage to do, was getting her angrier than ever… And he is still trapped with her.

      2. Nothing lasts forever. Even magical power/ mana. When it’s depleted the barrier will cease. But the real question is ‘when’ because their opponent is a whole group op people, Makoto only brought a few of his employees.

          1. Mio’s barrier, which she made while 100% serious, will probably last as long as needed, aka until Mio or Makoto undo it. Otherwise, it won’t be undone and will likely last way WAY beyond a day.

          2. You might be talking about the barrier, but it’s a barrier made by a serious Mio. In short, it has a lot of magic power in it, and it will outlast her opponent.

          3. Well, for the Safe Zone, it’s implied to last a long time(until the fighting would have been fully over at the very minimum), just that it also has a long cooldown and needs some time to activate.

            For Rokuya’s Gear Seal, it felt to me as though it also lasts a very long time, and that it’s duration isn’t determined by the mana put into it, instead having the fixed duration.

          4. Also, to be perfectly honest, considering that their plans include BOTH Makoto and Mio being unbeatable, and that they thus planned to restrain them temporarily instead. I seriously cannot understand the logic behind their actions if they know they cannot harm Makoto. As such, them having their revenge by killing Makoto’s subordinates also doesn’t make sense when considering that they know they can’t beat Makoto and that HE would come for revenge if his subordinates are killed.

            It makes no sense. What the heck are they even planning to do with this?

          5. My assumption is that the adventurers plan to deal with Makoto after eliminating all the other threats and attacking him as a group with every advantage possible prepared beforehand.

            Honestly, if there were a game where we played as Apple and had to battle something like Kuzunoha under these conditions, it would be frustratingly unfair.

          6. But Psychronia, the other main problem is that they consider that the Calamity Spider cannot be beaten even in base form! Thus meaning they they believe that even when Mio’s pact is broken, she would still be 100% unbeatable due purely to being too good of a tank. (And them thinking so while knowing what Root can do kind of supports Mio being able to tank and survive Root’s biggest attacks without problem. She obviously cannot beat Root, but he/she/it can’t kill her either.)

            Then, if they planned on her not breaking her seal, and then with them defeating Makoto in the meantime… You can’t expect me to believe that if Makoto is being fought by all of them, that Mio wouldn’t decide to break the seal just to go help him. Considering how much they seem to have understood how Mio thinks in such a frikkin shot amount of time and little to no interactions with her whatsoever(which I call bullshit on), if they were able to figure that out(the her not ever rejecting something if it came from her waka-sama, even if it’s dangerous to her), then they should also understand that she also values Makoto more than her own self-interests. That if he is in “danger”,
            then she would break the seal and sacrifice herself for him without hesitation.(she would consider it such, or rather would want to interfere if it’s a situation like that, with all of them vs Makoto alone).

            Now, there’s also the possibility that they intend to use spacial magic, or something similar, to literally SEAL Makoto and Mio one at a time, locking them up in the depths of the dungeon using GM-like abilities.
            The problem with that however, is that Makoto has already broken out of the Safe Zone… So they’re fucked. Sure they could teleport him around, but he could temporarily block the forced teleportation that the Bug Goddess forced on him a while back because he was ready for it.
            In short, he should be able to block being teleported around if he tries to.

          7. I don’t think it’s impossible for them to defeat the Calamity Spider in base form. Or rather, it’s been driven off before even if there wasn’t a true defeat. For now, my evaluation of everyone’s strengths is “Apple is capable of beating base Shen/Spider if they worked together and prepared the right conditions” (Makoto is out of the question, though).
            This assumption isn’t really based on evidence so much as a lack of contrary evidence.

            Next, the matter of Mio breaking her seal to go help Makoto. I’m also kind of doubtful of that. Makoto’s followers have frequently shown themselves time and again to have two slightly paradoxical drives when it comes to their master.

            1. They take pride in being under him and adore him, so they want to do things for him as much as possible-hence getting a little overexcited when he finally makes a command of them during the attempted Hibiki assassination.
            2. They have an absolute pride in Makoto’s inherent ability. Mio in particular demonstrated how completely she believed in him being leagues above everyone else during the Limia visit(and rightly so).

            Because of the second point, while she might worry, I think Mio’s faith in Makoto, on top of maintaining a bond, would far outweigh her desire to go support him.

            ….and with the final point, no objections from me. Makoto breaking free may or may not mess up all their plans in classic Makoto fashion.

          8. I think their plan is to have Makoto being held somewhere with Tomoe and Mio do not know where it is and the can sense him, the people who holding him can probably deal some psychological warfare. Sort of like you can not locate someone you know on GPS on your Smartplus. Plus since Mio is in that trap right now and chances are is that he is lying to her about the trap being rigged to kill Makoto is she escapes. Chances are the group knows they can not defeat Makoto, Tomoe, and Mio all at once, so they seperated Makoto in that safe zone so he would interfere and Mio in that trap with the statement that the seal is rigged to kill Makoto. In order to fight all Makoto, Tomoe, and Mio on 1 vs the entire strongest battle party. After they are done defeating Tomoe they probably head to Mio to finish her off and then Makoto.

          9. I think you didn’t read the chapter correctly. The gears on Mio won’t kill Makoto if they are broken. Their effect is that if they are broken they will erase/take away all contracts and things similar to that from the person they(the gears) were on. Meaning that they will destroy/erase the soul Pact between Mio and Makoto, thus resulting and Mio returning to her old form and old power level, and that she won’t be connected to Makoto’s soul anymore.

          10. I forgot that line I am reading another series it is hard to keep up with everything. I do believe their goal is to try out separated them to fight them 1 vs all against them. Chances are what he is saying might be lie to throw her off because usually in the series I read to cause a disconnect with something like that they would usually would have a magical item for a being of Mio’s level. For a seal like that the magic has to very complex and use a lot of magic, is possible to use a seal that restrain the opponent, if the opponent moves causes pain, and if they break free it will disconnect the contract Mio has with Makoto? And if 1 person does something like will have enough power to fight against Tomoe?

    2. That’s impossible for Mio to break it willingly. If she does, she’ll need to make a new pact with Makoto, but she can’t and she knows it as well. She knows that her magic power is too low to even count as 1% of Makoto’s. The difference in amount has become so large that it won’t work anymore. If the pact is undone, she’ll go back to her magic power level of pre-pact, but Makoto’s is already way way too large now, even more so than before. Heck, when they first fought it might have only worked due to Makoto using a lot of it up AND shooting that amount used at Mio(who then absorbed it), thus making the balance for a 20-80 contract possible. After all, she normally was supposed to have about as much as Shen, but Makoto doubled it up between those two contracts.

      Similarly, Shiki’needed 12 rings full of Makoto’s power for it to work(and I seem to remember it being a 10-90 contract, but I might not remember that part correctly).

      1. Oooo…That would really give us a decent frame of reference though.

        I wonder if it’s possible for Mio to feed until she actually can’t consume any more? Because wouldn’t it be interesting to see her get a power boost like Shiki at this juncture due to forming a new contract after being filled to the brim with Makoto’s thick, delicious, mana by necessity?

        1. True, but knowing her, she would probably start by eating the Aventurers of Origin and the others on their side in revenge first, we’d then see a lot of death all at once.

          Still, I don’t think she’ll break it, and I don’t think Makoto will stand by and watch with that gears being there. Takuya is soon going to HEAVILY regret having done the worst mistake of his life. He thought that Makoto was already beyond them, but he’ll now understand just how much even that evaluation was nothing compared to the read deal, just how much they fucked up. (They don’t seem to have realized that he’s beyond Root’s level yet. Heck, they don’t even seem to have understood that the possibility of reaching the level of gods.

  6. Thanks for the chapter. Very good one. A chapter where each opponent is out smarting the other and coming up with counter measures, I like it. 🙂

  7. I was starting to fear this series lost to the wimbs of life but here, a second chapter graces us with its presence in such a short time.

    1. If he did something like that, then Makoto would just nuke him and his party… again… and again. To break his soul.

  8. Thanks for the chapter, Reigo-senpai.

    I don’t know if it’s safe to say that the Author’s back or not, so I’m not gonna jinx anything. But still… that dude is a douche. Using Mio’s love for Makoto as a threat!? He deserves to die a thousand deaths just to survive to die a million more!!!

    1. I didn’t mind it, really. It’s clearly the smartest way to handle Mio, and you could just interpret it as acknowledgement of just how much she feels for him.

    2. Don’t worry : All he did, was wasting his stamina, make Mio angrier than ever and he’s still trapped with her… He digs his own grave.

      And Trashmoki’s fight against Sofia has taught us that being immortal isn’t a “good” thing in this situation.

  9. DAMNITTT!!!!! why i didnt get notification from my phone !? goddamnit !!
    and wow that Rokuya….. i hope he ready to feel the ‘education’ from Mio that already been tested to Shiki….
    and Thank You as always Reigokai !

  10. arigatou~
    sometime i just dont like how opponents think(even in some other series), the main group are trying to beat them and not kill them but the opponents are clearly trying to hurt the others heavily or even kill them, even worse, after knowing the group have no intention to kill
    isnt it like throwing away good will? note that i have bias towards the Main Character’s group but still…

    1. Eh…I would said that revenge is blind, and the protag itself is a giant pain (death) in the ass if they aren’t serious like that. Most likely…it’s kinda like releasing your steam by trying to trigger a nuke.

    2. On the other hand, Rokuya warned them that if they step on the 20th floor they will be killed on sight, but they didn’t listen and still came.
      in a sense, they impose themselves too

    1. That’s an interesting idea but I don’t think she will put her bond with Makoto at risk… so she probably won’t do something against the barrier. In any case, Rokuya is trapped with Mio…

      1. Not against it really, but some DBZ type shit, where she takes them in and isolates them in her body until the time runs out, so they won’t break while she punishes Rokuya.

    2. That’s also what I thought of when reading it. I personally think that Mio is already doing that while Rokuya is trying to find a way out, and that it’s just strong enough of an ability that it takes time for Mio to do it(and to be careful not to affect the pacts).
      However, it is also possible that she chose NOT to eat them precisely because she doesn’t know if it will count as them being broken off of her, thus severing her pact with Makoto.

    3. I think when you eat something, you are technically breaking it down.
      just compare how it come in and how it come out

  11. Oh man. Why do I have this positively vicious feeling of satisfaction about this chapter? Mio is trapped, and Makoto hasn’t escaped yet, but dang it, it feels GOOD to see their supercilious foes get flustered.

    Seriously, thank you so much for translating this.

  12. Mio so cute, so instead of destroying her bond with makoto she’d rather take the pain until the spell wears off. Makoto makes an exit to rescue his fam.

  13. Because she understood that the one who will be running out of stamina first will be the opponent.

    I think the proper one should be:

    … out of stamina first will be the hunted one

    or

    … out of stamina first will be the first one to lose

    Rhis is beautiful, how The author and translator dancing together in harmony 🙂

    This series should have anime adaptation.
    But if this get anime adaptation, it will go for Light Novel First then the WN will stop…
    I don’t know which one is better

    1. After seeing One Punch Man and Boku no Hero Academia both get adapted into anime and become massive hits, I’ve learned that any fandom of a great work runs the risk of hitting the critical mass to become toxic.

      In other words, I’ve resigned myself to a philosophy of “These stories are all mine and I’m not letting you assholes have any anymore!”

    2. I think it was meant to be, “the one who will be running out of stamina first (is her) opponent.”

      The ‘will be’ there makes it sound like she’ll make whomever runs out of stamina her opponent because of the future tense, but he’s already her opponent. What was meant was that her opponent would run out of stamina before her, thus is was her victory.

  14. love how he underestimated Mio…. he think he can take advantage of Mio’s Love toward Makoto…
    but he already dancing in the palm of Mio from the start…. what Mio after is Rokuya’s Stamina. she know that her attack wouldn’t reach Rokuya because she lacks speed. so she gradually deplete Rokuya’s Stamina…. while Mio just standing there beautifully… rokuya waste his stamina by searching a way to escape from Mio’s “net”….
    brilliant indeed….

    and “Last Boss” you all painstakingly seal finally make his move….
    prepare your ass cheek oh “Origin” bunch ~

  15. You know after fighting the immortals, Trashmoki and the senpai bitch would probably lose to them.
    I don’t know if they can resist the charm power tho maybe Rokuya and Hitsuna can.

  16. “!!”
    The expression of Hitsuna changes.
    If that expression was translated into words, it would be: ‘yeah, that’s right’.
    Looks like she is the type that can’t hide things.
    I feel like we can be friends.
    I feel like we can do some relaxing trades.
    —–Makoto found a comrade! XD

    “Uhm, Makoto-kun? Where did that mass of magic power, that was coming out from you, go?” (Hitsuna)
    “Ah, are you talking about the thing I can bring out whenever I want?” (Makoto)
    “Yeah yeah, that.” (Hitsuna)
    “I was wondering if I could let it out from the Safety Zone, you see. So I stretched it a bit.” (Makoto)
    “What did you say?!” (Hitsuna)
    “And…you know…” (Makoto)
    *Hitsuna gulps*
    “I managed to let it out.” (Makoto)
    —- Makoto you shouldn’t bully your kindred spirit…. I feel that he’s just smug that he manage to outmatch someone similar to him and get to see her reaction.

  17. So it’s true that only the Gods are able to “kill”(erase) the Black Calamity Spider. Amazing tanker lol.
    Makoto: Fuck this shit I’m out. Don’t mind me, I just grab my stuffs and leave. Excuse me please.

    1. i think she is not removable as are the dragons as they are part of the world fabric only the creature of the world could complety remove them. And Bitch godess ist not the creator but only a resident.

      1. In one of the alternate worlds that Makoto saw in a dream, Mio was killed by the Goddess while shielding Makoto from her attack. Tomoe was also lost at some point. The dream was what would have happened if Shiki had not become a follower, by the end Makoto had ended up on the Demons side and the Goddess had tried to attack him directly.

  18. Forgot to ask this last release but how will the releases of Tsuki affect your translation schedule in regards to both Tsuki and World Reformation?
    (If you don’t mind my asking)

    1. As I understand it, TsukiMichi gets translated as long as there are untranslated chapters, and World Reformation gets translated whenever we’re all caught up.

      And every upload is according to the same schedule.

    1. He ‘leaked’ his magic power outside the safe zone, through some crack he found, counstructs him Magic Armor outside and used it to pummel the zone’s barrier. That should reduce the barrier’s defense integrity and he can then force himself out.

      Makoto is a thinker.

  19. Oooo… Ohohoho. What a clever strategy!

    I was wondering if it was referring to a weakness of the Calamity Spider and her regeneration, but no, this is legitimately Mio’s weakness. Bravo, well done Rokuya. Full points if only Mio didn’t cover her bases beforehand.

    Even better, we got to see some more of Mio’s fighting. It’s occurred to me that we’ve gotten to see very little of all the main cast’s fighting styles, so the more subtle approaches are lost on us.
    Tomoe’s skillset implies tricky illusions, but her interests imply a focus on close quarters techniques.
    Mio’s regeneration and genius implies she just takes her time absorbing attacks both physically and mentally, but she seems big on using techniques as well.
    Shiki is clearly an analysis type and we’ve gotten to see a bit more, but it seems like he still hasn’t reached full potential with his many rings yet, which all suit a variety of approaches to battle.

    1. Yup, and I’m fairly confidant that if Tomoe was still thinking as Shen, thus not absolutely wanting to fight like a samurai, she wouldn’t have had a tough time in the previous chapter. It had already been stated that the adventurers of Origins considered it really reckless and inadvisable to fight the Muteki(invincible) Shen.

      Honestly, when speaking of “invincible”, illusion isn’t the thing that first comes to mind. It’s part of her techniques, but I’m pretty sure that we’ve NEVER actually seen her fight seriously. Even against Makoto, she wasn’t serious at first, and after the memory thing she didn’t even want to fight, instead wanting to join Makoto. It kinds of pisses me off that people assume that what she was doing against Makoto was her at her strongest and her being serious. It wasn’t.

      Plus, I also dislike how people say that she doesn’t have much experience because she was sleeping all the time. The thing is that her sleeping for the length she did is nothing when compared to her entire life. It was already hinted that she didn’t use to sleep all the time, and that she instead got bored of life, and felt a lack of challenge, a lack of interest in how the world was under the Goddess. It is thus VERY likely that she wasn’t as lazy before the Goddess took the world over. She’s also hinted to be the only dragon(along with Root) who didn’t reincarnate, thus meaning that no one ever managed to kill her(she probably never fought Root to the death though).

      Also, considering how much the Adventurers of Origin seem to place trust and important in Spacial control techniques, and that this is literally one of Shen’s field of expertise(making barriers and spacial control stuff, even making some one that made the Forest Oni’s forest impossible to notice or enter for centuries(Shiki could only enter it when it was weakened), and that she did it without needing to give it energy regularly, instead just making it up once and then leaving.

      Shen IS strong as fuck. I’m sure the Adventurers of Origin would have been as careful of her as they are of the Calamity Spider had they known she was Shen. Instead, it seems that they think she’s just another less known Superior Dragon who only became this more powerful due to the pact.

      1. She wasn’t weak by any account, even the fact the she prefered to use ilusions doesn’t diminish the fact that she was a Superior Dragon, but at some point in the figth with Makoto he did have her in the ropes, if she didn’t readed his mind and liked it, one of them would have been dead at the end of that figth, beside Makoto was guetting ready to use one crazy powerfull attack at the end. Now I don’t know if its true or not because we really never saw her seriously figth before the pact, but the Adventures combo said that any other Superior Dragon would have died in that attack combo, that Tomoe survived it because the pact with Makoto made her stronguer.

        1. Actually they said “If this were a simple Superior Dragon, after that full hit, what would be left to do is gather the corpse”. In short, if it were one at the level of Lancer or Waterfall. the key word is “simple”. What you are saying is that it would have beaten Root because he’s an other supreme dragon who hasn’t a pact.

      2. I dunno about that. My impression is that Makoto was still stronger than Shen during their first meeting.

        It is a fact that we’ve never seen Shen fight seriously though. I think she still died of old age or something over time though. I don’t remember where, but I think it’s been mentioned that Tomoe’s reincarnated a number of times as well-though for non-combative reasons. It might have been mentioned when Root’s memory purging of Futsu came to light? I don’t know.

        Because of that, along with the fact that Shen probably had truly few experiences with legitimate threats, I actually think she’s somewhat lacking in personal combat experience. That said, the fact that she can absorb and read memories renders this issue more or less moot…

  20. It is too soon, to think that Makoto has it all solved. There is still the mercenary who hates makoto, the master of the dungeon, and above all the knight who was about to arrive. Everything points out that someone will be in danger and sumanos tomoki and followers of the goddess would be a battle of all against all. I hope that Makoto gets serious or wants to kill someone to conclude this interesting arc

    1. Well if the Safety Zone has proven something is that Makoto is dangerous enough for them that the only way to stop him is by constrictin his movement, if they could kill him it would cost them mutch more that they are willing to risk, even more with his subordinates around, besides the mercenaries are been restrained byt the trio form Asora, I doubt that even if Tomoki appeared he could do something to MC and the Goddes Apostales aren’t problaly interested in the laberinth so far since it isn’t affecting the War with the Demons neither the rules of the Goddes.

  21. Thanks for the chapter
    Imagine Rokuya try to find a glitch way out of the room but full of sandbox in the surroundings in MMO perspective….

      1. nah, at this point he’s a player with an avatar that transcended outside of the game world to our own, picked up a baseball bat and use it to physically destroy the game he came out of

      2. more like GM vs Hacker account or possibly the game scripter writer that got bored and just wanna try the game that he make and having a bad luck suddenly got reported to GM but then the GM ask nicely is it glitch or did he hack the game , having a nice conversation, and then because he need to go , he just use the ‘code’ to runaway from the GM ‘prison cell’ (kinda like RO private server prison system in which GM can teleport player into the prison as they like)

  22. Guys/ Girls, just listen, you might not realize this so I’ll tell you just in case you don’t realize it yet.

    The next chapter of TsukiMichi will most likely show Makoto getting out of the safe zone (stylishly), but… Makoto’s decision of who he will go and help first will reflect who he treasures the most.
    Tomoe OR Mio.
    His action will be equivalent to him professing his feelings.

    Who do you think he will go to first ?

      1. … bad luck acts up again? Hahaha… didn’t see that coming.

        So you’re leaning towards Mio? I can see why, but if he really does then it will be the same as telling Mio “You’re more important!”

        1. Yes, I’m supportive of Mio, but the reason I think it’s more likely that he’ll aid Mio first is that burst of emotions he felt from her. He doesn’t know what’s happening on Mio’s side so she’ll become a priority.

          1. In terms of ships, I’m in the Mio boat myself.

            Tomoe doesn’t really have all that many good moments with Makoto in that way, and Mio only goes from abomination against all that exists to a pure lovestruck girl with Makoto’s influence.

    1. Ooo…That will be interesting.

      …Or, it would have be, I should say. It feels like Makoto would go with a non-answer. He already notes he prioritizes his wives over Beren’s group, but there’s really no reason he can’t snipe his way through the dungeon into both their arenas at the same time.

      It’s like Batman being asked to choose between a love interest and the greater good by the Joker.

      Only, instead of Batman, it’s Superman. And instead of death traps that activate so fast it’ll be an exclusive choice, it’s two slightly annoying pranks that trigger in opposite corners of a room barricaded with empty cardboard boxes. And instead of the Joker, it’s a trashtalking group of toys like in Toy Story.
      So basically nothing at all like what I just said it was.

      1. I hope he’s not going with the non-answer.

        Right now the author has given herself (I assume the author is female) two path to choose. Since she’s not going the harem route, she will make Makoto choose between Mio or Tomoe. The result of this won’t influence the overall TsukiMichi story, but it will heavily impact the future character developments of Mio and Tomoe, and their relationship with Makoto henceforth. They’re both rivals in love and whoever Makoto choose to save first would be the best girl for him (let’s put ourselves in Mio’s and Tomoe’s shoes for a bit). Tomoe has been feeling a little left out of the whole romantic relationship as of lately, and if Makoto chooses Mio, it’s like the end answer for her.

        Tomoe and Mio has never been in such a predicament, and I can see Makoto getting (little) anxious while covering his feelings with haughty words. He has to be. He has experienced the loss of Mio and Tomoe in the alternate realities (his ‘dreams’, remember?).

      2. Interesting. The only other person beside Joker that might set up the so called toys would be the Toyman from Superman comics.

    2. Honestly, he is already wondering what is happening for Mio to be this angry, and he already knows that Tomoe has the situation under control.
      Obviously he’s going to go to Mio, and that won’t have anything to do with which one he values most.

      Also, most of all, when he notices and understand what Rokuya has done to Mio, I’m pretty sure that we’ll get to see Makoto in rage mode for a short while once again. If the pact is undone, then Makoto won’t be able to make a new one with Mio anymore. Rokuya is thus literally taking away Makoto’s family. Makoto also probably won’t try to erase it because doing that could also count as being taken off of Mio, and thus severing the pact.

      I can thus easily see Makoto threatening Rokuya, torturing him, saying that he’s going to kill everyone else(on Rokuya’s side) in the dungeon if he doesn’t undo the technique, or just tell him to undo it if he doesn’t want things to get WAY out of hand(thus then making it so that Rokuya will imagine what could happen instead of Makoto actually saying he will kill everyone). Oh, and in all options, I see Makoto in rage mode while possibly also unleashing his magic power(aka not hiding the absurd amount)(I’m pretty sure he hasn’t shown everything yet).

      Another thing that could happen when Makoto is there is that he could just(while in rage mode) focus on severing the dungeon itself apart. With that serving as the threat that he could do so much worse to them, and that Rokuya should undo the technique.

      1. You’re all on Mio’s path. Why not Tomoe? That gal needed some ‘saving’ to be done for her! She’s against two enemies okay?

        Well… it’s obvious to us who’s in more predicament, but Makoto only saw Tomoe’s fight.

        If he goes to Tomoe, it’s understandable because he saw the fight. Or it could be because he trusted Mio enough to hold on her own. Rokuya’s sealing technique don’t lasts forever. She has to hold the pain and when it’s over, Rokuya would be in torture line.

        If Makoto go to Mio first, it would be choosing the uncertain, since he don’t know her fight. Going to her is a bit of a gamble. If he did .. Well well well… look who’s getting all the attention then?
        Poor Tomoe.

        1. That and even if he saw Mio’s fight he knows that he has a bit of time before he go and help. Since both Mio and the one she is fighting trap each other. So he probably has maybe a few min’s before he go and help and will focus on Tomoe.

    3. Oh dear Orca, don’t forguet that he has the magic Armor, he can go to one place and control the Armor to go to the other at the same time, or even divide the armor and send one prove to help the others with out him moving around.

        1. Orca, you seem to assume that Makoto going to Mio himself first means that he doesn’t like them equally. He perceived that there was a problem, that Mio was enraged because it, but he doesn’t know what happened precisely. On the other hand, Tomoe isn’t in any immediate danger, and he fully knows what’s going on there.

          This is a choice of situational priority, NOT a choice of who is loved most.

          1. Pragmatically speaking, it does mean that Makoto can make an easy choice without overthinking it.

            But who’s the say that Mio and Tomoe won’t think of it in that way at least a little? Conversely, it might also hurt their pride that their master had to come bail them out.

        1. And so, you finally reveal your true colors. I don’t think Mio likes you though. She only loves her Waka-sama.

          Also, the way I see it, if he sends the magic armor to Tomoe and goes himself to Mio(to deal with the possible bigger problem), the magic armor by itself is already overkill. As such, technically speaking, in this manner he helps BOTH Tomoe and Mio. There’s no choice of who to help as a priority, for both his main body and the magic armor(which is controlled by the main body) are aspects of himself. He is thus in both places.

          1. I’ve always show my true colors. It’s black and white… and Mio has always been my favourite. Although, as much as I like Mio I also wants to see Tomoe get the attention she deserves.
            It’s not about helping both of them. Makoto will help both of them.
            Only question is who he is worried about the most. No matter how small the issue/predicament is, a person will worry about the one they love.

            For now, I’m not betting all my money for Mio since Makoto is the ‘logical thinking’ (kill all) type who’s almost devoid of emotion when making decision in battle.
            *he’s struggling inside to maintain his humanity*

        2. Now I…see…..Orca……….you, you are also a Fan of the OPPAIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL HEIL OPPAAIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!! Thats why Tomoe deserve some serious loving!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They bounce, they float….THE OPPAAAIIII IS MULTIPURPOSEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Thanks for the chapter reigokai!

    I can already feel the “Wrath” of Makoto being released and I’m hyped af!

  24. Yey !!! Makoto will be moving now!! And we’re gonna wait for a while for the next chap lol
    Thanks for the chap ~

  25. Rokuya is trap with Mio, like an insect in a spider’s web. All he managed to do, was wasting his stamina and make Mio angrier than ever…

        1. Many great discoveries were made by accident.

          Like the teabag. It was originally meant as a sample, and people were supposed to rip it open, but some people misunderstood and brewed their tea through the original silk sample bags, and found it more convenient to brew tea like that.

          So, this may have been unintentional, but now that the bag is in the water… *sips tea*

          1. It’s amazing. 😀

            90% of humanity’s innovations are from lazy f*cks who want to slack off more easily.
            The other 10% are happy accidents.

          2. Now that you think of it, what about the tea-bagging in most fps games, was it an accident as well?

      1. English isn’t my native tongue so I can still make some mistake when I’m writing something. ^^

        But… Well… Maybe Rokuya will become a Hideyoshi… After all, he used Mio’s contract with Makoto as hostage. A good idea against her… But it’s also a very, VERY bad idea.

  26. Ahhhh. Beat them up, let them suffer til they wish they were dead. They’re immo anyways. Thanks for the chapter.

  27. He(makoto) is too OP lol
    What the hell with streeching magical power its like his magical power can become everything

  28. Ma~an. The trio of chapters we’re getting after a hiatus has been totally worth the wait. Well, the last one is still in the works, but clearly, it’s all Makoto hype~

    Although he’s a bit more serious this time, Makoto’s air of casualness is still amusing.
    “Ah…she’s like me. Maybe we can get along.”

    “I figured that I might be able extend it past your defenses if I stretched it out and slipped it through a crack.”
    “Eep!”
    “…So I did~ I’ll be making my move now. (〃°▽°〃)ノ “

  29. thank you for your great effort! im guessing a smiling makoto with a select few garden rose members agreed to join in tsilge.

  30. Thanks for the chapter, DAMN those figths were great, more that physical or magical it was all about a psicological battle, congrats to Ryoka that played well his hand against Mio and Makoto went and did it again, breaking other people plans nonechalanty. If only Makoto could be so calm and reselve in dealing with others things like he did in here!!!!!!!

  31. Thx for the chapter o/
    so are we back with Tsuki? (plz author tell me yes~~)
    Great to see Mio having a bit of trouble, she was always basically invincible but in the end she had a trup card in place in case things went south…
    Also the beast is free rum for your lives

        1. Look at the picture…
          Your eyes grow tired…
          Look at the picture…
          Your eyes grow tired…
          You close them…
          Now you’re sleeping… Sleep…
          You’re dreaming…
          You saw a sushi bar…
          A sushi bar with lots if sushi…
          You look at your hands…
          You see a flame thrower at your hands…
          I will snap my finger and when I do you will be awake.
          Rest… rest…
          Sushi bar… flame thrower…
          When you’re awake, you will take a flame thrower and burn the sushi bar…
          Rest… rest…
          …..
          *Snap*

    1. You know, I think it’s time we addressed a certain technicality before it becomes an issue.

      Reigokai intends to translate TsukiMichi according to schedule whenever there’s a new chapter available.
      But we’re in agreement that it’s okay to ignore this priority if a new chapter has been uploaded at the last minute and/or he’s already mostly through a translation of World Reform, right?

      Because TsukiMichi chapters are freaking massive, and it could be understandably exhausting to have to strictly follow that formula under unlucky timing.

  32. I feel Rokuya’s skill doesn’t make any sense. Why you should give freedom to someone who manage to break your skill? Why it have so odd effect? Also the target restiction make it more odd. I try to image some situation I can use that skill but there are far better option! I feel that skill is mostly made for Mio by the author.

    1. basically the last skill he use or create is spesifically to counter a summoned/contracted being in which the summoned/contracted being have less power when they dont have any contract with someone (in this case its Makoto) in which they got lots of power upgrade by the summoner/contractor
      since Mio is in contract state with Makoto, he though that when the contract got canceled then Mio will revert into the Calamity Spider form and lose all the benefit from having a contract with Makoto

      1. That last skill wasn’t something from the game / adventurer job. Most likely, it’s something he gained from that world (blessings or something like that) or something he got from the goddess.

      2. Like I said, made to be used against Mio. As assassin, you are not supposed to hae hard time to skip the summored creature and kill the summoner, usually. Aside you misunderstand Rokuya’s objective, he want delay Mio, not “weak” her.

    2. I agree that it’s weird for such a specific skill to be there without any good use other than against Mio and Tomoe in this situation. Literally made up for the sole sake of being against them.

      1. Well keep in mind that, firstly, it’s a unique skill that’s unrelated to his assassin class.

        And secondly, it’s a skill that works decently well against a normal person. It’d be fairly lethal and have the potential to insta-kill most people, it just that it was used in a context of fighting people in a league of their own.

    1. It makes wonder if the author in the future will have Makoto give the armor have personality of it’s own? Sort of like the so spirits in that series “Magika”. He already has that talking sword.

        1. What do you think of the possibility the armor could hi-jacked by someone? With the help of the Bug Goddess? There some cartoon and anime series where the villain would take the power of the hero and then later on the hero would take it back.

          1. Then it would be hard to copy if is it like a fingerprint. It would be interesting if someone like the emperor hero got his hand on it. He would be all like Juggernaut from the X-men with it. But probably takes a lot magical power with it. If someone does get they would either a device like used in the “Rise of the Shield Hero” WN when the villain took the MC shield and other holy weapons from them and the require energy.

          2. That would be an interesting development yet boring at the same time I think. We just have to wait for the author to craft us some good development.

          3. I hope it would a challenge 1 for Makoto. So far he is like the MC in “Death March” series which is pretty much unstoppable and pretty much close to establishing a business emperor like Satou, making a name for himself and no enemies that can stand toe to toe with him. I pretty much interest right now for Makoto make contact with his parents. In truth I believe there was more to the fact that Makoto was summon not because he was born male.

          4. The other 1’s would be the ending of the Demon war then the Emperor would invade the Kingdom, which might cause the hero’s of both to fight. And that so called crack on Makoto neck that seen by that seer. If leads to problems the Bug Goddess might have an excuse to get involve.

  33. The boss ready to touch the scene. The appetizer over and now for the main event. It’s a good thing those adventures can’t die but they maybe wishing that they could 😂😂

    But still Mio, the only reason y she can’t break her restrain isn’t because she can’t but rather because it would mean breaking her pact with Motoko. An absolute no no.

  34. Aaah my second favorite fix, HELL YEAH!! I literally expected Mio to have a legit weakness instead of her weakness being Makoto though…
    Thanks for the chapter. For real the author released the chapters when we were craving for them the most. He’s got to have some foresight ability or something! Such a beast!

  35. Wow, makoto is not dead by the poisoned tea 🙂
    I love some much the chara of this story.
    The masochist mio, the everbored tomoe, the carefree makoto and the big egos of the people of this world 🙂
    Thanks for this new chappter and happy to see you again 🙂

  36. Oh wow, 2 new chapters in just a few days?!?!? This is like Christmas, except 4 months too early!!
    Thank you Reigokai, and thank you Azumi Kei!
    Now for the actual chapter… I was under the impression that the immortal heroes weren’t going to fight, but just look, or even assist Makoto somehow…
    But I was wrong, they weren’t allies or anything like that. Seeing how they’re acting, they’re totally enemies… Now, who the hell they think they are? They’re just a bunch of losers who lost everything but their life long ago, and again the other guys from the dungeon are also a bunch of losers, it was THEIR fault in the first place that the girl got killed, and instead of killing the real culprit, or even trying to stop him while he’s basically mind-raping their country, they’re trying to kill Makoto and his subordinates, AKA the only ones who could help getting out of this shitty situation they are… These guys are totally retards, and deserve to die BADLY. It’s time for the author to stop with Makoto’s nicety and naivety, and let him get serious for once, just like he did against that door semigod or whatever it was… He’s being shat upon by once too many retards all this time, it’s time to stop really, and finally show this world what kind of powerhouse he and his “subjects” really are… Go ahead and kill these dumbasses, Makoto. DO IT.

    1. I dont think he can kill Apple. Maybe the rose group but not the immortal group. Sure makoto is powerful enough to beat minor gods, but not kill them. Yet. Its too early for him to be able to do it. I think he could once he is able to do creation with more ease. Or when he turns god. if anything just beat them all and have him force a ruling pack on them

      1. what do you mean he is unable to kill minor gods? Only reason the door hasn’t been destroyed is because he is still useful. As for him being able to kill Apple, personally i like to think if he put in the effort that he would be able to do it. Analyze with Sekai and then destroy with the gauntlets he created. His other timeline self that was unable to just insta-kill tomoki does cause me to have doubt’s but considering Makoto’s personality he probably went the easier route of just repeatedly killing him and that version of him did not have those gauntlets.

      2. “What happened to the labyrinth and Adventurers of Origin in the “Lorel Union got Glassed” timeline?”

        Maybe in that timeline, Apple didn’t exist? OR MAYBE after he killed the demonlord, he gained favor with the Bug Goddes which allowed him to remove their immortality? But more likely, Apple just hid in their dungeon and nuke-proofed it.

      3. the door was not a minor god. it was an item that gained sentience. also come on you want to make the apple group be as strong as tomoki? im sure shiki alone can kick his ass. and shiki is definitely not strong enough for this group. also yeah rose he can crush with or without his gauntlets, he did analyse the”barrier” with sakai and sent his prima materia armor out to crush them.

        as for the world where makoto just destroyed lorel union the apple group would still be alive and hidden. They basically said that they cant get involved with the world much. so if makoto just wiped the whole country they still need to stay clear, its a major event and they cant get involved. isnt that why they dont stop tomoki from zombifying people. its era changing stuff, something they are basically forbidden from doing. right?

        1. Actually, I’m pretty sure I remember that Door being a minor god(aka, having achieved godhood and having become a minor god). On that matter, Tamaki is also a minor god who was originally an object that gained sentience.

      4. are we taking the door at face value? i mean sure he could be telling the truth but if he and tamaki are minor gods then makoto should already be able to kill tue bugg and lets face it shiva said she is a minor one, a goddess but still minor.

      5. When was the goddess stated to be a minor god? I remember they thought she was a idiot and shame of a goddess, but not that she was minor. (“Shiva: She is even a goddess with the power of creation; what a fool.”) Hell, she is suppose to be impressive just for the mere fact that she is considered a goddess with the power of creation. (Shiva: A power that a limited amount of Gods are able to use, you have accomplished it with the body of a mortal after all. If the Goddess and us didn’t have collars restraining us, we would have already flown to your place in an instant and begun war.” (Daikokuten)” ) They also have to grant her a certain amount of acknowledgement as a result. (Shiva: “You may have noticed this from the fact that we do not call that goddess by her name, but we are in a position where we must always give that a certain amount of consideration. If we ignore this fact, we will be no different from that.” ) .

        Though as big of an idiot as she may be, she her power far out rivals Mokoto prior to his moment of creating his gauntlets even in a sealed state. It’s unknown now how close Mokoto is to her now that he has focused on increasing his own abilities, but personally i think he still has a long way to go.

    2. agreed, they had them in captivity, they knew she was insane and beyond saving and they know she and her friends went and tried to kill Makoto and he defended himself.
      i understand she was your friend but she was to far gone and tried to kill him. now instead of being angry at the guy who turned her into a slave they’re instead going to attack the guy that defended himself and is also against the guy that turned your friend into a slave.

      it really is fucking stupid and could have been fixed with a 5 min conversation but nope, bitches be crazy

      1. im guessing they didnt knownit was tomoki, they just knew what was wrong with them. like you got poisoned but you dont know who did it. they jusy know makoto killed them and are unloading all their anger at him

  37. It is pretty silly that they’re going after Makoto’s group, when Makoto only defended himself as his right, instead of going after the psychotic scumbag pervert hero who’s trying to control the world. Their priorities are backwards….or are they just that scared to pick a fight and piss off the goddess?

    1. Eh, currently its more of them just siding with their friend over a stranger. even if they know their friend is at fault. I am surprised though that they are completely willing to go the lethal route even though they realize it was self-defense. or at-least i am interpreting their current behavior to be lethal. Though i am interested in if they would consider making a move against tomoki. Their only worry should be catching Root’s attention since they instantly cut off contact with him and disappeared from the world as they previously agreed so they don’t know root wants to still be friendly. As for the goddess she should only have limited ability to interfere in the world though that bug has been known to break the rules.

  38. Thanks for the chapter! I was getting restless thinking i would have to wait a year to see what happens. Now if we get another chapter soon and with not cliff i could die happy.

  39. Oh foolish eternally chained immortal whose fate hath stopped, thou shall realize in but a short time, thou hath truly f***ed up.

    You pissed off the yandere by threatening what she holds dear. Truly foolish. Most likely fatal immortality be damned.

  40. just beat them up and force them to switch on your side..
    then kill that bastard Tomoki (ashamed because he’s making me and all Tomoki’s angry with his idiotic brains) and also kill his queen who’sshit..
    don’t forget to go and mocking Hibiki and that shitty god of them..

  41. I love Mio most of the time, but I hate this side of her, torturing ppl who didn’t really do anything like shiki or lime.

    And I hate Makoto even more for turning a blind eye to it.

    Thanks for the chapter, its been a while.

    1. the hell you talking about? all of them used to have hostile intentions. it’s just punishment. just an extended version

  42. thanks for the chapter reigokai-sensei…
    and thanks for the author that resume his/her master piece (Azumi Kei)…
    nice wifu here, i like this mio so much XD want to escape from spider it non no no, you cannot…
    what a brilliant and gergous move there makoto go help them so you can return asap, xixixi

  43. I think Makoto would have been enraged too if they would have break his pact with Mio. He might even have thought that they managed to kill Mio somehow and thats why their connection was lost.
    Either way he might have just given up on befriending them and after sending the others to Asora he could just blow up the whole dungeon 🙂

    Thanks for the chapter.

    1. Really, these peoples’ fates lie heavily in Makoto’s ability to go back to Tsige and go “Negotiations broke down, sorry about that. I’ll take responsibility and supply the muscle instead.”

    2. i thought the same. big fuck up from rokuya specially he didn’t want the battle to be seen. had they not considered makoto just going nuclear when the connection was severed? lol

      1. Well… They did put him into a room to make sure he can’t attack. But they didn’t expect him to get out of this room…

  44. Thanks for the chapter reigo-san..I have midterms tomorrow and since this is the only work/book I have read today, I will probably use this to answer my exams..thanks

    Answer
    1. Mio angry
    2. Mc moves
    Etc

  45. that was unexpected indeed , worthy opponent for mio but he touch places where he should not touch bit coocky of him 🙂

  46. 1. And…… Another common sense-san was killed by Makoto😂🤣😂.

    2. Thanks for the chapter Reigokai-san

  47. Now that I reread it again, The ability of Rokuya fantasy gear something is rather stupid.
    Did he wish that ability specifically for Mio? If not it’s just a simple restraining effect.

  48. Would be a good idea strengthen the power of the pact so it doesn’t break so easely, with this and the time when Makoto was dragged to the space of bug there are already two times when the pact was obstructed and that’s very unpleasant.
