Chapter 175: Troubling matters

Translated by Yoshi


Note from the translator:

Hey guys, Yoshi here with a quick update on what’s happening to the series! Reigokai has informed me that he will be back next month. This is my final sponsored chapter for this series (thanks so much to you lovely donators!), and I will be releasing one final regular chapter on Monday/Tuesday (depending on how fast/slow/lazy I am). After this, the series should be going back to Reigokai.

Thank all of you for reading my translations, I hope you enjoyed them. An extra special thanks to all of you who donated for sponsored chapters!

A note about the previous chapter (174) – Given new information from this chapter (175), two dialogue lines have been changed in the previous chapter and now read:

「Hero-dono, if I recall, you were planning to leave the academy city?」(Tomoe)

「Huh, ah, yes. That’s right. Coming here was a decision that I made independently.」(Hibiki)

Apologies for any confusion caused.

Enjoy the chapter!

Yoshi


「Hey, Onee-chan? What’s wrong? Weren’t you supposed to come back tomorrow?」(Chiya)

Hibiki replies with an embarrassed look on her face.

「… That was the plan. But it looks like I’ve caught up with you.」(Hibiki)

「Did your business in Rotsgard go well?」(Chiya)

「Yes. We were supposed to gather just before we enter Lorel, but now it looks like I can enjoy the view of the Gold Highway.」(Hibiki)

「Being together with Onee-chan makes me happy!」(Chiya)

「Me too. Ah, sorry, Chiya-chan. I was busy today, so I’ll go to bed first.」(Hibiki)

「Mhmm, see you tomorrow. Good night.」(Chiya)

Hibiki’s face does indeed look a little pale. As Chiya sees her off, she assumes it is just fatigue.

Hibiki hired an extra room in the inn, some distance away from the rest of her party. She enters the room and throws herself onto the bed.

She lets out a large sigh.

(The inside of my head feels like mush. I did everything I needed to do in Rotsgard, but the final matter with the Kuzunoha company really wore me out. I’m thankful for the restoration of the kingdom and the fact that we managed to negotiate for command over the academy’s mage corps, but to think that there was another Japanese person here other than that from the empire. Someone I know, even. At this rate, I can use our senpai-kouhai relationship from when were in Japan to hear reliable information from him. But his identity as Raidou is problematic. He’s the representative of a company with unknown influence. Even his majesty and Joshua-sama acknowledge their power. It seems they want to have the company as their ally, but…)

Hibiki considers the information she gained in her conversation with Raidou, AKA Makoto, in relation to what she already knew about the Kuzunoha company.

(He was hiding it, but the reason he’s using a fake name is because he doesn’t want his whereabouts to be known by the goddess, right? I didn’t feel a shred of respect for her in his words. I was summoned in a castle, but he told me that he was summoned at some corner of the world. It’s probably true, but if that’s the case then it’s basically indirect murder. Which means that it’s quite likely that Misumi-kun and the goddess don’t have a good relationship. Is it alright to accept someone like that as an ally? That company’s equipment and Mio-san are absolutely excellent. I wonder what I should do. I’m not worried about him as much as Tomoki, but imagining what could happen after the war, Misumi-kun’s existence is…)

When the war between humans and demons eventually reaches a conclusion, anyone who endangers the kingdom of Limia’s existence would be undesirable.

For Hibiki, who thinks that the goddess’s system should continue in this world even after the war, Makoto seems like he could become an attractive source of military power. But at the same time, she thinks he has shown some signs that he could become a source of evil.

(There’s no doubt that Tomoki will set out to unite the world after the demons are defeated. It would be impressive if those ambitions that he put no effort into hiding were only a bluff, but I’m sure that’s not the case. If I were to ask Misumi-kun for assistance and he turned out to be the goddess’s enemy, it is quite possible that it would become a great reason for the empire to start a war between hyumans. That would be bad. We don’t even know if we’ll win the war against the demons, but that doesn’t mean that we can just focus on what’s in front of us and hope for the best. So the safest option is to associate with them purely just as a company at first, then slowly request military power. Even then, a request from just Limia and myself is a hand we can only play in a situation where we have no other choice.)

She knows that the Kuzunoha company is powerful.

Hibiki has seen that first hand.

Hibiki considers a truly ideal scenario where, just as the demons are brought to the brink of annihilation, the Kuzunoha company would use the Devil to face the empire, have the two destroy each other and then be defeated.

She might appear heartless in comparison to Makoto, even though they are both Japanese. But during their conversation, Makoto did not give any impression of being on either the hyumans’ side or the demons’ side. Hibiki has an ominous feeling about him that will not disappear. So she has decided that as a hero, she should make her decisions without taking into account her personal feelings.

Her decisions have too much impact for her to think things like “I will believe him because I know him” or “I can relax because we went to the same high school”.

(We don’t even know the background behind Larva and that white guy. This is just a hunch, but the one who blew away Stella is that white Devil. I thought I could get some kind of lead on him if I came to the academy city, but I suppose it’s impossible to get that sort of information in only one day. I have a feeling I can figure something out in Lorel as well, so there’s still some hope. With regards to Misumi-kun, Joshua-sama is summoning him and I have to return to the kingdom as well, so I’ll meet him in the kingdom in the near future and ascertain his standpoint there. It’s not a good idea to investigate too much right now, since that person called Tomoe-san gave me a warning.)

Hibiki remembers the blue-haired woman who is the very reason she was able to meet up with her party so quickly in the first place.

She is confused as to what to think about Tomoe.

(She should probably be about as strong as Mio-san. She was someone I can’t understand no matter how hard I try. She seemed to know the basic way of handling a katana, but she’s either never been through a competition between katana-users or she’s just inexperienced at fighting. Even so, her stance was quite solid. Ah, that’s what it reminds me of. It felt like a staged sword fight. What exactly has she been doing to learn how to use a sword like that? I don’t understand her. I don’t think Misumi-kun has any understanding of kendo or swordsmanship, but I wonder if you would be able to have such a solid foundation just by hearing a report on how it’s done. That company has far too many secrets.)

After Tomoe had insisted on it, they spent almost an hour at the academy having a contest with katanas.

The only magic they used were strengthening magic and healing magic, so it was a true contest of sword techniques. Hibiki won nine out of ten matches.

Tomoe’s powerful technique that made use of her physical ability had taken Hibiki by surprise initially, but Hibiki won the rest of the matches afterwards.

To Hibiki, who has studied kendo for a long time and even learned proper swordsmanship, Tomoe was but an inexperienced swordswoman.

However.

(She recovered straight away even after I cut her, didn’t she? Though she did say that she had prepared healing magic in advance.)

It was a truly spectacular magic.

To the point that Hibiki unconsciously watched her in fascination.

After a deep blow that Hibiki had thought might even endanger Tomoe’s life, Tomoe had stood up as if nothing had happened. Hibiki was completely shocked.

Hibiki had immediately decided to make it one of her objectives to find out whether Tomoe would be able to demonstrate such an ability a second time.

Tomoe did give her an explanation.

She willingly explained to Hibiki how the magic works.

It was not exactly a deal they agreed upon, but in exchange, Hibiki taught Tomoe a way to train the Japanese sword’s iai*.

TLN*: This is the art of drawing your sword, cutting down your opponent with the same movement and then sheathing the sword afterwards.

(As a swordswoman, her physical strength is terrifying, but not particularly special otherwise. She probably normally uses magic to fight. I defeated her that many times and yet she wasn’t even upset about it. But more importantly…)

Tomoe, Mio, Makoto.

And Larva, whom she might be able to find clues about in Lorel.

In addition to that, the restoration of the kingdom, the empire’s movements and the war with the demons.

Even though she is exhausted, Hibiki does not stop thinking about the various subjects that float into her mind as she goes through a sleepless night.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

I’m naïve to think that winter would stop the development of the land.

Are you serious?

Ema is in a bad mood, which is unusual for her. After hearing the situation, it seems she is unhappy that Kaleneon’s farmable land is expanding slower than expected.

Apparently I’m naïve for believing that snow falling on the land is a valid reason for that.

Kaleneon’s a northern, inland area with lots of mountains, so my only thought was that it would be unreasonable to try to develop the land during the winter.

According to the Super Secretary Ema, it wouldn’t be a problem if magic was used.

I had this thought during the restoration of Rotsgard as well, but we’re in a situation where we have to use magic for all kinds of work.

… There’s no shortage of workers capable of that among the demi-humans that are temporarily working in Kaleneon, but still…

I asked Root to secretly move hyuman and demi-human adventurers that pass certain requirements to Kaleneon as immigrants. It’s normal for those kinds of people to have a lifestyle where they’re doing some work on the side, anyway.

I need more information than just what Ema has told me, so I’ll make a decision on how to deal with the situation after I hear from the Ansland sisters in Kaleneon.

More importantly, I need to focus on the present.

「Tomoe, explain. What’s with those torn-up clothes?」(Makoto)

This is the problem at hand right now.

「How good of you to ask! I asked the hero Hibiki to demonstrate her knowledge of true swordsmanship. Well, we had a small contest. These are wounds of honor, so to speak!」(Tomoe)

「Where is the honor in having a contest for your hobby?」(Makoto)

「Let us not worry about the small details! She was amazing, Waka. Her sword moved like this so quickly, and in the next instant, it was slashing back at me! I think that the trick to this would be to use the wrist and the back. It really surprised me!」(Tomoe)

「… It’s amazing that only your clothes got torn.」(Makoto)

「No? My blood scattered through the air multiple times. I was healing at the same time, so it was not a problem. Though I cannot repair my clothing, so that is why I am in this state.」(Tomoe)

Tomoe touches her torn clothes. She seems like she’s enjoying herself.

They fought each other with real swords…

「Weren’t you supposed to stop Senpai from being exposed to danger?!」(Makoto)

「Of course. I did not use most of my magic and we fought only using swords; in my current state, there is no way I can land an attack on her.」(Tomoe)

「So you thought it would be fine because you can’t hit her, seriously, you. It’s not just a matter of healing yourself when you get cut, is it?! Do you think I’d find it interesting to imagine you being cut?」(Makoto)

There’s no way I’d find that interesting.

I’d be worried instead!

「Muh, that’s… It was a little rash of me.」(Tomoe)

「Katana this, katana that. I know I can’t give you a match using a katana. But take care of yourself a little more! You understand me?!」(Makoto)

「I will be certain to take care from now on.」(Tomoe)

「Good.」(Makoto)

Now that I see Tomoe seriously reflecting on her actions, I’ll forgive her.

「So? What happened to Senpai?」(Makoto)

「It seems that her main objectives were to secure the academy’s cooperation to assist with the restoration of the kingdom, as well as the assistance of our company, which she also has business with.」(Tomoe)

「Tomoe-san! What’s with your appearance! You told me to calm down, and then you went and punished Hibiki, didn’t you?! Isn’t that unfair?!」(Mio)

Mio has barged in, right in the middle of Tomoe’s explanation.

In her hand is… an octopus?

She’s holding a bright-red octopus.

Boiled whole?

Even for a new dish, that’s quite amazing.

But octopus, huh.

「I just fell over! It has nothing to do with Hibiki!」(Tomoe)

「Where would you have to fall for your clothes to be cut to ribbons like that?! If you are going to play dumb, please think of a better excuse! I had things I wanted to say to Hibiki as well, but I held myself back! If you are going to do such things, Tomoe-san, then I will do as I please as well!」(Mio)

Oi!

「Unfortunately, Hibiki is no longer in Rotsgard. I politely escorted her back to her party.」(Tomoe)

「… Waka-sama! Tomoe-san is horrible!」(Mio)

「Ah, jeez. I already scolded Tomoe a little while ago. Oh, that octopus looks delicious. Did you boil it?」(Makoto)

「Octopus? A-ah. I am just checking the salt seasoning, but it has been boiled quite well. I would certainly like Waka-sama to try it.」(Mio)

Mio is even explaining how she cooked it.

「Waka, you have grown used to dealing with Mio. That is very reassuring.」(Tomoe)

「As for you, go and get changed first. You know that Mio and Shiki have been obsessed with seafood cuisine these days, don’t you? Let’s eat together. I’ll hear your detailed explanation then.」(Makoto)

Mio and Shiki have been going to port cities recently to stock up on seafood.

I sometimes participate in the cooking if they’re using ingredients that I’m familiar with.

Mio wants to increase her number of seafood recipes and Shiki apparently wants to collaborate with Gotetsu and do research into making nabe with seafood. Their interests coincide, so they often go out together.

Shiki was in high spirits today, saying that he’d be putting crab in a nabe.

He’s holed himself up in Asora’s kitchen, going through a trial-and-error process to test out different combinations of various soups and vegetables.

He was enthusiastically combining the different soups that he received from Gotetsu.

I say he’s combining them, but it feels more like a drug manufacturing process. I’m looking forward to the final product.

「Shiki is making a nabe today, correct? It seems much more promising than Mio, who merely boiled her ingredient. I am looking forward to it.」(Tomoe)

「… Merely boiled?」(Mio)

Mio’s eyebrows are raised.

Oh man, should I follow up on this?

I cut one of the legs of the octopus that Mio has brought and hold it in my hand.

「… Tomoe.」(Makoto)

「Huh? … Muguh!」(Tomoe)

「Is this the taste of something that has been merely boiled?」(Makoto)

「… This is delicious. Hmm.」(Tomoe)

「Is there something you’d like to say to Mio?」(Makoto)

「… Mio, I apologize. This is very delicious. I am sorry for saying that it has been merely boiled.」(Tomoe)

Tomoe earnestly bows her head in apology.

「… It is fine as long as you understand. I have other dishes prepared, so you can look forward to them as well.」(Mio)

Octopus, huh.

Excellent!

「By the way, Mio. What dishes are you planning to use an octopus for?」(Makoto)

「Let’s see…」(Mio)

Mio lists out her planned menu for me.

She’s not listing anything that I can make.

Let’s add two items to the dining table.

There’s still time for that.

「Well then, I’ll make something too.」(Makoto)

「Oh! It has been a while!」(Tomoe)

「What kind of dish will it be?」(Mio)

「One will be the nabe and the other will be a dish using flour. Tako-shabu and takoyaki!」(Makoto)

TLN: タコ/Tako = octopus. しゃぶ/Shabu is a shortened form しゃぶしゃぶ/shabu-shabu, which is a type of nabe/hot pot dish that typically has thin slices of meat. Takoyaki is balls of flour batter filled with octopus. And now I’m hungry.

Shiki will probably enjoy it, since it’s a nabe.

I’ve never showed them a shabu-shabu before, so it should be fresh for them.

Mio is always interested in new dishes no matter what they are.

Tomoe is looking forward to my cooking as well.

This is also my chance to redeem myself.

I remember the time I asked the Dwarves to make me an iron plate to make takoyaki with.

It’s a bitter memory.

I’d prepared the ingredients before realizing.

I had no octopus.

Nobody was selling them at all. I wanted to cry.

In the end, I used shreds of chicken meat to make toriyaki*, but I felt a true sense of defeat that time.

TLN*: トリ/Tori = bird, so toriyaki is what he has named this failed dish which is basically takoyaki with chicken in place of the octopus. Don’t see what wrong with it, sounds delicious to me.

I couldn’t show anyone my failure, so I ended up eating it all by myself.

I can finally sweep away my trauma.

Now then, let’s go to the kitchen.

59 thoughts on “Chapter 175: Troubling matters

  1. I don’t understand. What are Hibiki intentions? She seems very indecisive and naive. She knows she’s going to kill innocent lives after the War. Didn’t she say she’d change their treatment?

    It’s like she sees things Black and White. But at the same time she does not.

    1. Remember her meeting Io back in Limia? She got repulsed by soldiers killing civilians, only for Io to remind her of the demihuman settlements she raided to kill indiscriminately, leaving her without words to counter.

      This, fellow reader, is what I call hipocrisy.

      1. “For Hibiki, who thinks that the goddess’s system should continue in this world even after the war, ”
        What to expect from someone who agrees with the Bug?

  2. this Hibiki is fucking stupid ” Is it alright to accept someone like that as an ally?” the goddess tried to murder him and she immediatly thought he was the bad guy….

    1. “So she has decided that as a hero, she should make her decisions without taking into account her personal feelings.”
      In the end she isn’t that different from Tomoki. She became drunk in the feeling that a god has chosen her as a ‘savior of the world’ and believes it’s just obvious for her to decide what’s good or evil.

  3. That infodump on Hibiki… I know the author is trying hard to make her a villain, but isn’t that too much of a thought process even for a genius high school student? That’s already on the level of a bullshit deducting.

    1. you are saying she is way too smart even for a genius (and i think i agree) but reading the comments it seems people want makoto to as smart as this if not smarter

    2. It could be possible. Not sure how long she’s been there but I’d say she wasn’t far behind in being summoned to that world after Makoto (who’s been there at least a year?)

      There’s a reason that prior to our current standards that it wasn’t strange for teens to being foisted on responsibilities. Your experience grows you faster the more you are challenged (such as them being in a war). You can’t stay innocent forever if you plan to survive long with those sort of conditions.

      Kinda like the MC in Death March not understanding that because of the demon lord festival that kids working is the norm because you never know when you’ll die.

      1. In her introduction she lost interest i everything in earth since she excelled in everything she do. The moment she was sent to the othereworld, she was able to grow more because the environment allows her to keep using her brain. Thats the only explanation here.

    3. They talked for 3 hours, and the only thing they didn’t talk about is the devil, shiki, goddess, how he was transported, and probably how he met tomoe, mio and other demi-humans, and also about asora. Also root of course
      But everything else like Rembrandt, raza, students, teacher, academy, tsige, all of those are talked about

    4. they were small mentions of hibiki pretty much being a prodigy. she was the school president and she was very well known in their town for being very smart and she has a very good understanding of fighting styles. it makes sense that she can think like that but yes it maybe a bit too much

      1. I would say its more than just a bit too much.
        Being the school president just means she was chosen by the majority of the school students, and while they tend to select intelligent people,and hibiki is really a smart woman.

        All that deduction went pass the limits of intelligence to reach the level of precognition or clarivodence.

  4. Damn, I low key want toriyaki. Not sure if takoyaki would be to my taste since I’ve never had octopus but if it’s chicken I’d eat that shit up for sure.

  5. Well how did damn hibiki came to the conclusion that “The devil” had any relationship with the kuzunoha company? Im so freaking sure makoto wouldn’t mention anything of the sorts and no one has proofs about the devil (apart from the demon side) existences.

    1. Maybe something was lost in translation. Maybe she meant a three way between Kuzunoha, Tomoki and the Devil. From what I’ve read, she still havent connected the Devil’s identity with Makoto.

      1. No, i re read the fight in limia and all is lancers fault. In his fight againts shiki he kept shouting devil this devil that.

        Hibiki heard it and questioned shiki what did he mean with “servant of the devil”.

        1. But you are right. In that fight hibiki can deduce the devil and thr white being are the same. Not that either of them has anything to do with kuzunoha company. So yeah you surely are right.

          Something must have been lost in the translation. I can’t find any other explanation for that comment.

          1. “The last words of the man that was turned into a sword. And the previous words of him when he said ‘that person resembles those people’. It feels like it associates with Tsige.” ~chapter 162 last paragraph~

            she could cpnclude that by Tsige and ‘those people’ he meant Kuzunoha so if he is related so is his master (guy in white aka “The devil”) although this was more like a guess so I think author wanted to show how “smart and perceptive” she is

          2. Yeah you are right, that paragraph explains everything but really this author just wants to make hibiki like a pseudo inferior version of sherlock holmes, she always comes with these conclusions with no evidence nor real proofs like she has clairvoyance.

          3. I think hibiki should know Makoto is the “White guy” since the unknown entity that gave her her power told her the white guy is from her world as well so that should at least come to her mind

          4. Well im sure that makes no sense. A person from her world. Its not like her world only had a person or two. It could have been anyone from her world. Billions of options available. Impossible she would think on a minor guy she knew from school.

            And im pretty sure that didn’t happen anyway. The entity never told her the white guy was someone from her world. Only that he unilaterally knew him.

          5. maybe gaining intelligence when you level up actually helps out with more than just magic in this world?
            I mean, she did break the level limit, and iirc, she was considered pretty smart back in Japan. Plus she’s a Hero… idk, for me it seems as if Hibiki slowly gets smarter as the story goes on, soo maybe the gaining levels helps with more than just fighting prowess?

          6. I doubt it since it has never been specified, and Hibiki becoming smarter… I would say she becomes shrewer not smarter and that’s not strange, she was only 17 or 18 when she came to that world, its common for teenagers to grow

    2. My interpretation is that she deduced that the Kuzunoha company have an unknown but large influence, large enough to attract the king of Limia. With that influence, he probably can reach out to the devil, and the devil and kingdom taking each other out is a possible outcome that she’s hypothesising.

  6. I dont know what is with the author’s preference for idiots. I mean, everyone that met Makoto and his group will always think on how to control, how to ally with them, how to remove them, etc. Not even one have the thought of maybe cooperating between people on even grounds.

    And then there is Hibiki. Like, wtf. Where did you link with him having bad relations with the Goddess and him being on no races side, equals to him being a potential threat in the future? Like, you dont get hit if you dont hit first never come to mind? Sorry, couldnt remember the right proverb. This is such a disappointment for a character trait. I mean, I understand looking at the future, but Makoto has never shown any tendency of relying on violence for anything. B1tch, earth has a multiracial society. Goddamn I’m so frustrated.

    The only decent character so far seems to be the Demon Lord. Seems, as we dont get a lot of story on him yet. As for Rona, she is out. I dont like her at all.

    1. she read the report of kuzunoha company that prince Joshua give to her. makoto clearly said to the prince that he is not siding anyone. also she deduced that he’s not in good realation to goddess because makoto tell her that the goddess dropped him in the end of the world where the dens of srtrong monsters and demi humans lives. that’s enough reason to realize that goddess wants him to be killed there and makoto might be want a revenge for that

    2. I already disliked Hibiki because of her stupid thought process: First let us enslave all demons and then they can work themselves up within hundreds of years and under the goddess rules.
      The Goddess rules and faith are the reason demons and demi-humans are on the brink and rebelled like this in the first place.

      I get the feeling that she is either corrupted by her own standing or by the power of the goddess. At first she distrusted the goddess and now she is like a godess fanatic, where everyone who is against her needs to die.

      1. Glad I’m not the only one who thinks “LeT’s EnSlAvE tHe DeMoNs So ThEy HaVe RiGhTs In WhO kNoWs HoW mAnY gEnErAtIoNs” is a stupid ideology

      2. huuuh? Since when has she ever thought about enslaving the demons? She never mentions or even hints at that. The most she hints about what her plans against/for the demons are is “I need to end this war so I can help the Demi-humans gain rights by getting rid of monarchy and bringing about democracy” She also has no intentions of enslaving the Demi humans either. Yall are stupid

        1. I haven’t read past this, but he probably came from future chapter and comment in the past chapter based on his knowledge of it, which is pretty unfair. Nobody should have done that. This is the chapter when what he talked about hasn’t happened. If he wanted to talk about something that happened in the future, then do it there, not here.

        2. What do you think beeing put under the humans and working for them means. Its nothing else besides slavery, from where they should work on it to rise from it. (Which is like I stated impossible.) People should sometimes really reread some chapters. She said such things in former chapters.

    3. My interpretation is this is Hibiki’s deduction:

      Makoto shoes no respect to the goddess = rough relationship with hyumans = potential threat.

      Since she decided to be on the hyuman’s side who’s on the goddess’ side, she’s with the goddess by association. Meaning anyone that doesn’t show respect to the goddess is their potential enemy. And since Makoto has a very powerful company, any potential for him needs to be watched like a hawk.

      Also, honestly the demon lord is the closest person to Makoto. He wants the best for his followers and also doesn’t discriminate race. Can’t wait for them to meet I bet they’ll be best buds.

    4. She doesn’t know Makato has never relied on violence at all; meaning that she can’t dismiss the possibility. She has never known him well enough to know his full personality. (being in the same high school doesn’t mean shit, even more so if she’s a year or more ahead.) If he isn’t clearly for one side or another, it’s very possible for him to suddenly choose/reveal that he is working with the demons at any point in time. As for literal countries trying to control, ally or remove them, that’s normal. Not a single country would ever try and talk on even grounds with a company, no matter how large, no matter how well known, no matter how reputable it is. It would never happen. It’s so unrealistic that imo, it should never be done in any story. And so far, they are literally the only ones to try and do so. So idk wym by everyone they have met.

  7. And once again i read the chapter and find something new to which bad mouth Hibiki. That Bitch.

    How stupid is she? She is right she just can’t think in the present and she must consider the future. But considering she has no guarantee she will win the war, or worst she has no guarantee she won’t die in the next fight againts demons cause she is so fucking weak and useless.

    She shouldnt be going around thinking on things at the level of “after we win the war”. She has nothing to back up if she is going to win. Or if she is going to survive, or even if anyone will be able to beat the demons and how long it would take for that. At this point she is day dreaming with those trains of thoughts

  8. With the 10 matches of kendo, Tomoe probably learned 10 or more kendo strikes. She was holding back and Hibiki couldn’t even hold a candle in regards to strenght.

  9. Hmmmm, Makoto’s intuition has gotten better so let’s hope he finds out that Hibiki is using him for infos. But Why the fuck is everyone trying to control this guy. And where the fuck is the God’s gift?

  10. Wow Hibiki… you’re unsure of Makoto so you plan to murder him through schemes. These two Japanese that are supposed to be heroes truly are trash. I mean, it’s not like you don’t know him at all but just to make sure he isn’t a hindrance to your power grab from the Kingdom, you want to murder him.

    Then we have this trash of a hero that wants to basically own all the women and control the world, all because he was bullied.

    Here we have Makoto who is being used/manipulated by everyone, when all he wants is everyone to be happy and equal, no prejudices. I get it’s naive and impossible in such a imbalanced world because of a thras goddess. I Still can’t wait to find out what goddess she really is, since the other Earth gods indicate she’s one of them. I REALLY can’t wait til Makoto starts to mature more and then puts his foot up all their arses.

    1. Considering is a goddess who is so damn concern in external beauty and that Athena was the goddess who actually punished her, i would say the bug goddess is a greek god, and that she is Aphrodite.

  11. Ok, I’m seeing a lot of comments about how much of a bitch Hibiki is and how she used mc for info and all that, and I get that some people feel frustrated as she uses our beloved (?) mc but in my opinion, it really does not matter.

    This is my thinking: So we know that mc is at God’s level strength, although it was stated that he did not beat Athena in her full form and she did not use her gear, mc still basically won over her in the fighting competition. So every time I see these characters where they find mc a threat and want to use him bla bla, but the only outcome from that will be that, for example, Hibiki manages to trick mc into a dangerous situation but mc finds out he is being used, this fuels his hatred or anger to that person (does not have to be Hibiki) then simply overpower their expectations and that person gets mc as an enemy.

    Besides Hibiki is probs a soft spot for Makato since they are both from Japan so it’s expected that he would fall for her tick but I do agree that it’s stupid that she becomes such a hypocrite, like before these latest chapters I felt that Tomoki was a trash Hero that has been corrupted due to power while Hibiki is a pure and good-hearted person that just wants to help, sure she might be a bit naïve but she just stood out as a person with good morals, so the whole “Shitty Goddess should rule” thing felt weird cuz that’s implying that she is fine with the demi-humans and demons being treated like they are, besides isn’t the Bug goddess fault for the whole war? So I am disappointed she has twisted morals. If this character trait was developed during the story i would be able to accept it but it felt very forceful.

    1. Well first will be that makoto didn’t win that fight with athen, in fact he lost, but he gave a really good fight so yeah it occurs what you say.

      Even if he gets in a bad situation cause of Hibiki’s trap, he will overpower it, you are right there. But even it really doesn’t matter whatever hibiki plans and tries, its annoying seeing her with that big bright smile she shows makoto while in the back choosing the knife she will use to stab him.

      And that’s mostly it, that’s why most of us hate that bitch.

      But you are indeed wrong she is a good girl and only naive, while she might be more good of a person than bad, she is indeed a bitch who goes around only thinking what best for her objetives (whether these are good or bad is another topic in itself) and she is willing to use whatever best method to fulfill them.

      So, yeah she is not really a good girl at all, just a better person than Tomoki.

      1. haha don’t worry my guy, a few chapter later I change my mind drastically, you can probably find some of my comments later on talking about how much I hate her haha

        1. Haha no worries! Only giving my opinion, its a relaxing way of passing time while waiting for new chapters.
