WM – Chapter 195: Takatsuki Makoto faces a Demon Lord

Beast King Zagan.

If asked to describe him in words, it would be ‘a giant silver lion’.

“Or more like, isn’t it too big?” (Makoto)

I ended up saying that out loud.

That’s how big it is. 

In front of this guy, dragons and giants are like small rats.

Isn’t its size bigger than 100 meters?

If I didn’t have information beforehand, I would have thought this was a kaiju the likes of Godzilla.

Isn’t it breaking the isekai immersion like this? 

(I explained to you, right? The Beast King has the blood of the Earth Divine Beast, Behemoth. He is on a different plane from your average monster and dragon.) (Noah)

Noah-sama’s voice resonated.

Information I was told of before arriving here.

Apparently, after the war at the Divine Realm ended, the Divine Beast Behemoth that stayed in the mortal realm impregnated monsters around, and those descendants became Demon Lords.

So problematic…

By the way, where’s Behemoth? 

(He has been sleeping for around 15,000,000 years in the Demonic Continent. He won’t be waking up, so don’t worry about it. In terms of a map, he is a location called the Hazel Mountain Range.) (Noah)

He is being treated as a mountain range.

Just how big is he…

(Divine Beasts are mostly like that, you know. More importantly, concentrate on the Demon Lord in front of you.) (Noah)

This isn’t the time to be having idle chatter. 

“Sakurai-kun, do you think you can win?” (Makoto)

“Yeah…is what I want to say, but I won against the previous Beast King when I had the sun on my side. Right now…” (Sakurai)

The sky is covered in black clouds. 

The light of the sun isn’t reaching at all.

What to do.

At that moment…

“…XXXXXXXXXXXXXX.”

The Beast King Zagan spoke.

The air shook as if his voice itself was an attack.

The Demon Lord was saying something in a low and dignified voice.

…But…

“Sakurai-kun, what is the Demon Lord saying?” (Makoto)

I didn’t understand what he said at all.

It is not human tongue, and it is obviously not Spirit Language either.

“…It is apparently a language of demons. I don’t understand it either.” (Sakurai)

Sakurai-kun answered apologetically. 

The Demon Lord continued speaking.

“…XXXXXXXXX.” 

No, if you are trying to convey something, say it in words that we can understand! 

I think he is saying something to the human side…

Bifrons-san and Setekh were talking in human language, you know?! 

(Bifrons and Setekh ruled the West Continent 1,000 years ago after all. They can’t manage it without knowing the tongue of humans, right? The Beast King is always in the Demonic Continent, so he can only speak the demon tongue.) (Noah)

I see, so that’s how it is.

By the way, do you understand demon tongue, Noah-sama?

(Huh?! You plan on having me translate for you?!) (Noah)

Ah, sorry.

Of course that’s not good.

(Geez, can’t be helped, Makoto. Only this once, okay?) (Noah)

Looks like she will translate for me.

(Let’s see: ‘Foolish humans… After 1,000 years of making up for our losses, we demons will once again rule the world…’, is what he is saying in a long-winded manner. Also: ‘Light Hero, I will accept your duel with me, the Demon Lord Zagan’.) (Noah)

He isn’t saying anything important.

Also, what’s that about a duel after you set a trap on him! 

That’s angering.

“Oi, Sakurai-kun, let’s hit the Demon Lord with a preemptive strike while he is having his speech.” (Makoto)

“E-Eh? …Is that okay?” (Sakurai)

Sakurai-kun made a troubled expression at my suggestion.

Oi oi, there’s a limit to how much of a good guy you can be.

“By the way, I have been trying to control the pitch black clouds to clear the sky for a while now, but it isn’t going well. Even when I manage to control the clouds, it just ends up going back.” (Makoto)

Changing the weather by using my Spirit Arm. 

It really doesn’t work on the pitch black clouds.

I say that, but I think I would be able to restore the weather temporarily for around 30 minutes.

That would just be like throwing a pebble in a lake, huh…

“At the time when we defeated the previous Beast King, we somehow managed to defeat him by teaming up with General Yuwein, the Great Sage-sama, and the Country Designated Hero of Highland. But…” (Sakurai)

Sakurai-kun directs his gaze to the distance.

At that place there’s the six nation alliance army and the demon lord army fighting intensely.

There’s no signs of them coming to assist us.

Or more like, the black barrier has disappeared, but our side doesn’t seem to have noticed that Sakurai-kun is okay. 

What stands out the most around us is the gigantic Demon Lord.

There’s no idiot who would rush to a completely healthy Demon Lord.

“Want to try running away to regroup, then?” (Makoto)

“…It would be nice if he were an enemy that would allow that though.” (Sakurai)

We look at the giant silver beast in front of us.

He is so big that I can’t even tell properly where he is looking, but I think he is looking at us.

He most likely knows where we are…

(Makoto! He said that if there’s no answer, he will be the one coming at you!) (Noah)

What answer?! 

Tell us in words we understand! 

“Sakurai-kun, he is coming!” (Makoto)

“A-Alright!” (Sakurai)

We prepared for the enemy’s attack.

The Beast King opened his mouth wide. 

Light gathers into the mouth of the Beast King.

Geh…could it be…

“KAH!!!” 

A giant beam was shot from the mouth of the Demon Lord.

I felt as if the sun had been thrown at us.

Eh?

Aren’t we dead here…?

“Holy Swordsmanship: [Explosion]!” (Sakurai)

Sakurai-kun swung his sword, and the attack of the Beast King was offset. 

The two attacks clashed in the air, and exploded. 

“Sakurai-kun, that’s impressive! With this…” (Makoto)

“Haaah…Haaah…Haaah…” (Sakurai)

The usually relaxed Sakurai-kun was breathing heavily. 

“Sakurai-kun…are you okay?” (Makoto)

“Without the sun, I can’t replenish my mana or my aura, so…it might be rough on me if that just now were to come a number of times more.” (Sakurai)

That would be bad.

“Let’s hide for now.” (Makoto)

“Got it.” (Sakurai)

I use Stealth on Sakurai-kun and myself, and take distance from the Beast King.

“[Mist].” (Makoto)

I don’t know if this will work to inhibit his vision, but I cover the surroundings with heavy fog.

Won’t we be able to escape if it goes well?

“GUUOOOOOOOOOHHH!!” 

The roar of a beast resonated.

The next instant, a tremor that felt like it could turn over the ground happened.

“Takatsuki-kun! Grab on!” (Sakurai)

“Thanks!” (Makoto)

I was supported by Sakurai-kun when I couldn’t stay on my feet, and somehow managed to endure it.

At that moment, something weird jumped into my vision.

There’s a wall.

We were surrounded by a giant wall. 

To prevent us from running away, huh.

Or more like, he managed to make a wall like this in an instant. Isn’t he on the level of the Titan Old Man? 

(The Demon Lord Zagan has the blood of the Earth Divine Beast, Behemoth. Think of the ground itself as the weapon of Zagan.) (Noah)

Thanks for the explanation, Noah-sama, but is there no method to clear this scenario?

(The best way to defeat a Demon Lord is with a Hero that has the Divine Protection of a Goddess. That’s why you have no choice but to borrow the help of the Light Hero-kun, but…) (Noah)

Hearing this, I glanced at Sakurai-kun.

Sakurai-kun also looks over here. 

“Sakurai-kun, I will clear up the sky for an instant. Please test out if you can do something with that.” (Makoto)

“Got it!” (Sakurai)

“[Spirit Arm].” (Makoto)

…*Zuzuzuzuzu*

A hole opened up in the black clouds, and the light of the sun peeks in.

Sakurai-kun raised his sword and light covered the blade and Sakurai-kun.

But…

(It is getting pushed back!) (Makoto)

The pitch black clouds that are most likely shaped by mana cannot be controlled properly with my water magic.

I should think of the pitch black cloud itself as a spell from another mage.

No matter how high my proficiency is, I can’t control the spell of someone else.

“Takatsuki-kun! The Demon Lord has noticed we are here!” (Sakurai)

“Geh.” (Makoto)

The Demon Lord opened its mouth and was about to shoot the same lazer-looking attack of before.

You…even though you have that big of a body, you are the long range spammer type?!

Are you really Godzilla?! 

“KAH!” 

A beam was shot again.

“Holy Swordsmanship: [Grand Cross]!” (Sakurai)

The light wave that Sakurai-kun shot from his sword clashed against the attack…and an explosion occurs.

“Uwa!” (Makoto)

And I was blown away.

“Takatsuki-kun?!” (Sakurai)

Sakurai-kun somehow managed to grab me. 

This method is no good.

And I am being a hindrance. 

Should I move separately…?

The moment I thought that…

A giant something landed from above.

The giant face of a lion was looking over here. 

It raised its big leg and it was falling onto us. 

The giant claws on that leg were burning like magma.

This is bad! 

Sakurai-kun is currently grabbing me and has a bad posture right now.

We can’t avoid it. 

As if Sakurai-kun had resolved himself, I could see from the corner of my eye that he had placed his sword in front to ready himself. 

This…we might have messed up here.

Clear Mind 100%.

I thought for a second whether there’s anything that can be done, and unconsciously moved my hand to the dagger of Noah-sama…

“Oi.” 

“Eh?!” 

“Wa!” 

Someone suddenly called us from the back, and Sakurai-kun and I were pulled.

The surroundings blurred. 

And then, the scenery stabilized in an instant.

“Oi oi, that was quite the trouble you were in there.” 

An exasperated voice resonated.

By the time I noticed, Sakurai-kun and I were being grabbed by the collar and were hanging in the air.

There was a giant crater where we were standing just before, and the ground was burning.

What an attack…

If we had been there, it would have been bad.

But we moved in an instant.

I know this feeling.

The spell that Lucy used to bring me here.

However, the mana used was several tens of times more polished than the one of that time.

Chantless Teleport. 

There’s only a few people who could accomplish that even if you were to search the whole continent.

I moved my head and somehow managed to direct my eyes to my back.

Pure white hair and white robe. 

Dimly shining crimson eyes.

“So you came…” (Sakurai)

Sakurai-kun let out a voice filled with relief.

I also sighed in relief.

Haah…we are saved.

“Let’s defeat the Demon Lord.” 

The owner of that reliable voice is from the legendary hero since 1,000 years ago, the Great Sage-sama.

    1. Well how do you think those first commenter able to comment very early xD
      Except if one of them is real life Flash then that is possible

      1. you need to become no life or having a good time zone.
        it seems at my country it’s at 8 AM but i’m wake up at 11am to 12pm..

  1. Thanks for the chapter~

    Ohh, the White Loli comes back!
    I wonder if the White Loli stronger than the current Light Hero.

    But first, i won’t be surprised if the first thing she do would be sucking Makoto’s blood lol. It’s been a while since her last drink.
    Ah, right. She is a vampire right? How come she is okay being under the sunlight? I know it’s dark as for now, but back in the Highland where Makoto facing 5000 monsters, she also appeared (but late) right? Or is vampire there a bit different than what people’s generally knows about vampire?

    Makoto tried to change the weather but he can’t? So there’s someone that’s maintaining the dark clouds? I wonder who’s him / they are.
    Also, to be honest i’d like to see the fighting style of Great Sage-sama. Don’t have any clear view on how she fights, even when Lucy’s Mama challenged her we don’t have any insight of how the fights are going.

    1. She will definitely suck his blood. She must have hurried to come on the battlefield by using Teleport. She will need to recharge her reserves of Makotonium.

      How does his blood taste for her ? Mellow ? Nectarous ? Balsamic ?
      Also, he should give her some headpats. It has been a while that he didn’t do that.

      1. When i was bleeding, i tried to taste my own blood a few times. It taste, bland. There’s some balsamic taste to it too though, but it’s just too little. Maybe that comes from zinc inside blood. Me being in late state of pre-obese might contribute to the taste. But i don’t know how it would affects it.

        Anyway, if i were to think that i like blood or human blood is primary source for my energy, then that’s what i would like. The perfect composition of blandness and balsamic taste. That paired with how blood is, a bit lump (is it the correct term to use?), then i think it would feels like drinking liquid marshmallow but doesn’t taste sweet at all.

        What about flavour? Well, i assume that vampires tongue is mutated so that it perceives flavours different than normal humans do. Because what we know generally about vampires being void of blood so i think their taste receptor won’t function normally. I would assume that something that’s considered yummy here, would taste bland in vampires tongue. So if i like the blood like mentioned, and if a vampire tries the same blood that i liked, maybe for him/her it would taste perfect. Not too much flavour, but also not too void of it.

        And how no v-card would ruins it? Well, i- haven’t yet to touch that topic so i can’t say anything specific about it xD
        But if i would to make assumption, then loosing v-card would mix your blood composition with the person you’re having affair. Like how you eat a sandwich that only has bread for the filling. That would taste, well, pretty normal but adds few more and it would feels blegh.

        But Makoto’s party consist of only 1 normal person (as for now though). If he has an affair with all of them (please Noah-sama’s divinity, please have the property of strengthening Makoto’s carnal desire ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ) So that makes it like, putting different kind of foods together to create a new taste. 2 same kind of food, and 3 others that isn’t the same. Sound’s like a perfect sandwich lol.

        TLDR In conclusion i think it taste like a fluffy drink and if we are to compare it to normal beverages then it’s like the perfect sandwich.

      2. What if by some unexplained phenomenon, his blood is tastier the more he has intercourse with women ? It will just be too funny. In that scenario, the Great Sage will not lose her favorite drink.

    2. She’s a high class vampire. The sun won’t kill her but it will weaken her. Anyways she shouldn’t be weakened right now since the sun is being blocked though she might be low on mana since they mentioned she’s been teleporting a lot for long distances during this whole thing.

  2. The Divine Earth Beast Behemoth ? I remember that in chapter 61, Noah mentioned that Leviathan was a Divine Beast, so Leviathan should be something like the Water Divine Beast. How is he supposed to defeat a Divine Beast in order to free Noah when a mere descendant is as strong as a Demon Lord ?

    A giant silver lion who shoots beams ? It reminds me of Solgaleo.

      1. Yeah, she mentioned that Leviathan was way stronger than the Great Demon Lord Iblis. Leviathan is 15,000,000 years old at the very least. It means that his Water Magic Proficiency must have reached insane levels. How strong is he ? Is he as strong as a God ? Synchronizing with Undine might not be enough to defeat him. Leviathan can probably use the water itself as its weapon.

        1. I honestly doubt a synchro with Undine would be enough, maybe if Undine herlself fight against her seriously with the intention of not pull back, we need a deep explanation of how strong the spirits are compared to gods and how strong the divine beast are compared with them, I think that maybe the divine beast and the greats spirits are equal been both of them representatives/manifestations of the nature/elements.

        1. Leviathan is most likely a water attributed divine beast so if Makoto synchronize with it he should be able to make it feel good and if he stacks charm magic on top of that he can get himself a huge pet
          If makoto

  4. I’m honestly a bit upset because of be spoiled about the thing with the cloud so I’m not really motivated to comment so I only want to say that if he can’t control the spell of other (don’t know if is really impossible or it’s because he still can’t do it for now, no more spoilers please) then a option could be overwrite it.

  5. I’m kind of happy that I usually read the chapters when there are some comments, but not too much. It seems that I should be aware of spoilers?
    Dun dun dun!
    Thanks for the chapter! Waiting for more bloodsucking moments in the middle of a great fight, I’m sure our great sage would love that!
    By the way.. I don’t remember, does she have a name?

    1. Until now we only know her as Great Sage (aka White Loli), nothing more. And the spoiler thing seem like something that sometimes leak by accident so normally isn’t a problem (I think, at least the times I read the comments isn’t a concern).

    2. Great Sage-sama has a name. It would be revealed in chapter ~210. Her name is very simple. That’s all i could say heheh, i don’t want to give hints too much that it touched the margin of spoiling the storyline

  6. thanks for the chapter.

    now I want to see the duo hero versus godzilla… I mean Beast demon king.
    somehow I imagine Makoto expression under clear mind 100% like Makoto doing hard boss fight. (if ordinary people will in despair maybe)

  7. How many elixir does Makoto have on him again? Would they work on a vampire? She may need one after multiple teleports. At least the darkness is advantageous to her.

  8. Thank you for the chapter!!
    Damn I was out for 5 hours, should not doing 200 eps anime straight.
    When I was waiting for the double hero fight , the great sage will save the day!!
    But I kinda interested about how the great loli sage fighting style.
    Hope gonna get more chapter for Christmas.( ・ω・)

  9. Such a cool enterance ppl might think she is the hero now.
    so why don’t he synchornize with Sakurai to make fake sun.
    also i wonder what kind of spirit will come he did with Gteat Sage-sama now.

    I been wondering why what will happen if he synchornize with male will become buddy-buddy or it is.. let’s not think deeper about it..

    1. You know, I wonder? The light hero powers seem to revolve around borrowing energy from the sun, but I think it’s just that you don’t need to use magic power to generate sunlight; Like a water mage standing in the ocean. The problem in this case is a lack of light mana, not Sakurai’s control. If Makoto synchronized with Sakurai he’d still be working with the same limitation: Sakurai’s mana pool. Light spirits would be the only way to get infinite light mana, and to see fire spirits he had to kiss Lucy.

  10. A creature the size of a mountain range? I’m expecting at some point Makoto will meet it.

    So Zagan is just one of those cheap crappy bosses they put in video games that just spams long range attacks. Makoto will want to complain to the devs.

    The Vampire Loli has come to save her husbando… er I mean food… er no I mean ally. Yeah that’s it. Ally.

  11. Great Sage drinking or asking for blood reminds me of that pink/white haired Heroine from Rosario to Vampire that treats the MC of that harem series like a sports drink or exotic wine.

  12. Sorry for spam, seems there was a bug in the website. Did not do it intentionally, I just couldn’t see my comments

  13. Finally caught up. Man, its a good series. Can someone tell me a series similar to this? It was unexpectedly good. From the top of my mind some similar novels i would say are Trash Brave which is meh and Sevens which i think its really good so far.

    So, anyone has any other Novels similar to Weakest Mage?

  14. Learn the human language ya ethniocentric dick!
    That’s funny though. A demon lord is doing his thing and monologuing but nobody can even understand him. I wonder if Takki is clear to reveal he had Noah translate for him since he’s already outed as the apostle…

    Anyway, cavalry is here. Which is convenient because now we have someone credible to testify against the pope when he tries to shift the credit to Sakurai after this.

  15. thanks for chap
    lol i wonder how sad demon lord will feel if he realized no one understood him.

    i was expecting lucy’s mom you know ?especially with the foreshadowing ‘tired sage in capital’ ‘rosalie didnt join battle yet’ ‘same as lucy teleporting but larger mana’

    Famous Flag words of MCs in Jap novels :

    ‘He has been sleeping for around 15,000,000 years in the Demonic Continent. He won’t be waking up, so don’t worry about it. ‘

    1. When you put it like that, I’m left thinking of the demon lord’s speech as a prepared public speaking project, which is why he was so stiff about it and talking about a “duel”.

  16. “Without the sun, I can’t replenish my mana or my aura, so…it might be rough on me if that just now were to come a number of times more.” (Sakurai)

    Yeah, THAT. How exactly did Abel win?
