WM – Chapter 200: Furiae is waved about by her Guardian Knight

TLN: Hey guys, Reigokai here! 

This message is technically for the readers who read only WM since I have already posted this in the Tsuki one, so go ahead and skip it if you already read it there!

Happy New Year guys! 

Man, what an eventful year it has been, yet it felt like it went by in the blink of an eye. 

So many things happened this year, and that includes me. From having to take care of family members to getting pay taken away from me to even a possible change in website domain because of botting suspicions, and many more stuff. 

It really was hectic, and I gotta say…it was thanks to you guys that I managed to survive it all. 

I really don’t know what would have happened without the heavy support of you guys here. Hell, I might not have been able to write this. That’s how big it was. So really, patreons, donators, people who gave me advice, people who left encouraging comments; know that you all gave me a hella ton of strength to actually manage to stay on my feet. There’s no amount of words that can express my gratitude, but truly…thanks with all of my heart. 

I was really moved by the kind community that has been formed here, and it made me glad that I took translation all over again. 

I hope that you guys also managed to get by despite the bleak times. Remember that it is at the darkest of times when light shines the brightest. It happened to me, and I as sure wish you all the best in this new year! 

I will keep the Isekai doors open whenever you want a small break and just want to relax elsewhere! 

Once again, thanks for turning it around and making this one of the most memorable years! 

May this new year shine the brightest! 


◇Furiae POV◇

Haah… So peaceful.

I silently sighed.

I rubbed the back of the black cat on top of my laps and was looking at the outside view from the window of the hospital room.

Since Takatsuki Makoto -My Guardian Knight- got hospitalized, peaceful days have continued. 

It would be nice if it were always like this. 

There were a lot of rough things too.

The demon lord army led by the Beast King Zagan invaded from the Demonic Continent. 

But the Demon Lord Zagan was defeated by the teamwork of My Knight and Ryosuke. 

Of course, the biggest threat that is the Great Demon Lord Iblis hasn’t happened yet, so the danger is still there. 

(But…I think he would be able to do something about it. My visions of the future have been missing a whole lot lately after all.) (Furiae)

Since meeting My Knight, my Destiny Magic hasn’t been reliable at all.

The rebellion in the Highland capital was easily stopped.

The Demon Lord resurrection in the Wood Country was put to an end.

And the future of the demon lord army winning was avoided.

All of them had My Knight involved in it.

At this rate, the future of the Great Demon Lord resurrecting and the Light Hero being killed might disappear.

I ended up having that positive thinking.

In the past…I hated this world that oppressed the devilkin even more than I do now.

I thought that it would be better to just have this unfair world be destroyed.

But now…I feel like this world isn’t that bad.

Since when did this change? 

It is most likely since the time I followed that weird Guardian Knight of mine.

I thought that one day our Guardian Knight pact would be cancelled. 

That being the Guardian Knight of the Cursed Oracle would not last long.

But I don’t have that feeling anymore. 

Everyone from the party are good people. 

They don’t shirk me even though I am called the Cursed Oracle.

As for My Knight, it feels as if he isn’t even interested in me at all.

…At least show a bit of interest.

“Naah Naah.” 

The black cat on top of my laps tapped my arm. 

Looks like it is hungry.

“What a glutton of a demonic beast. Wait for a bit. I will prepare some food.” (Furiae)

By the time I noticed, I had become the caretaker of the black cat, but now that I think about it, isn’t this black cat the familiar of My Knight? 

It isn’t attached to My Knight at all though.

‘Princess has stolen my familiar!’, is what he made a ruckus about before, right?

Fufu, just remembering that made me laugh.

I went to the place where we placed our luggage, took out the cat food that the merchant Fujiwara-san prepared, and set a silver bowl.

What luxury for a cat.

You are getting such luxury thanks to the achievements of your master, you know? 

Be nice to him once in a while. 

“Nah! Nah! Nah!” 

The black cat taps my leg, demanding me to give it food quickly.

Good grief, what a greedy cat.

Once we return to the hospital room… 

At that moment, I heard the voice of the Rozes Princess and My Knight.

Oh my, looks like the two of them have returned.

When I was about to enter the room…

“Hero Makoto has become the Guardian Knight of the Great Sage-sama.” 

(………….Huh?) (Furiae)

I heard something unbelievable. 

W-Wait a minute! 

T-That’s a lie, right?! 

I haven’t heard anything about this!

This must be me mishearing. 

That must be it! 

But my hands were trembling.

A-Am I going to be thrown away?

By the time I noticed, the silver bowl had fallen onto the floor, but my confused head had no leeway to worry about that.

I fumble my way in search of Takatsuki Makoto.

“M-My Knight…?” (Furiae)

“Aah, Princess, I have become the Guardian Knight of the Great Sage-sama tod—” (Makoto)

This man! 

So shamelessly! 

Steam filled my head.

“YOU TRAITOOOR!!” (Furiae)

I lunged at him, straddled him, and tried to choke him (apparently).

After that, the Mage-san and the Warrior-san tore me off from him, and was pinned down.

I don’t remember it properly though.

◇◇

“Eh? Then you are still my Guardian Knight?” (Furiae)

What, so getting all shocked was a waste. 

“That’s why it should be okay, right?” (Makoto)

My Knight had a nonchalant expression without a single sign of being apologetic.

How odious.

“…I didn’t hear about this.” (Furiae)

I pucker my lips and criticized My Knight.

“I think becoming a Guardian Knight just like that on your own volition is questionable, you know, Makoto.” (Lucy)

“Takatsuki-kun, you have to consult with Fu-chan about things like this beforehand.” (Aya)

“Hero Makoto, you must not fight with your party members.” (Sofia)

My Knight must have noticed he is in a bad position, he averted his gaze.

Serves you right. 

“I will talk about the matter of Hero Makoto to Noel-sama.” (Sofia)

The Rozes Princess exited the place.

“Maybe I should go to the church in the 9th District~.” (Aya)

“Ah, is that the church that Emily was in? I want to go there too.” (Lucy)

Looks like the Warrior-san and Mage-san are going to be going out together.

It is rare for them to not be together with My Knight.

“Eh, what about an adventure?” (Makoto)

“No, Takatsuki-kun.” (Aya)

“Rest, Makoto.” (Lucy)

Being rejected by his two comrades, My Knight got dejected.

Maybe these two are also angry that he became the Guardian Knight of the Great Sage-sama without consulting them.

I was the one who got pissed the most though.

After a while, the two left.

There’s only Takatsuki Makoto and me in the hospital room.

“Guess I will explore the capital…” (Makoto)

My Knight muttered this.

Muh, this guy, he immediately planned on leaving.

“Want to come with me?” (Makoto)

“What’s with the invitation as if I am an aside?” (Furiae)

“It is fine if you don’t want to though.” (Makoto)

“I didn’t say I didn’t want to.” (Furiae)

Hmph! 

I will have you pay for giving me a heart attack there, okay?! 

Takatsuki Makoto and I go out to the Symphonia capital.

◇◇

“What’s…this place?” (Furiae)

What’s in front of us was a giant building shining in gold all over.

How flashy.

“The Grand Highland Casino. Let’s go in.” (Makoto)

“Casino…? You gamble?” (Furiae)

When I was a child, the granny that looked after me often said ‘men that gamble are all trash’.

It seems like she was fooled by a useless man in the past.

My Knight didn’t answer my question and approached the guard of the casino. 

“Heya~.” (Makoto)

“Ooh, Bro. You brought some mo—T-Takatsuki Makoto-sama?!” 

My Knight greets the guard that was watching over the entrance.

The guard was giving out pressure at first, but he immediately changed his attitude. 

“Can I go in? Uhm, if I remember correctly, Peter’s badge is somewhere around here…?” (Makoto)

“I-It is okay! You and your comrade can enter freely!” 

“Is Peter-san here?” (Makoto)

“I will call the young master!”

The staff-looking people of the casino were all flustered. 

Looks like he has an acquaintance here.

Mumuh…My Knight liked gambling? 

That’s a hidden side of him.

I remembered the words of the granny…and it worried me. 

My Knight isn’t a hopeless man, right?

“Princess, let’s go.” (Makoto)

“Wait, I’m going.” (Furiae)

I hurriedly follow after him so that I am not left behind.

We passed a sturdy looking door, and we entered the golden building. 

“Uwaah…what an impressive place.” (Furiae)

“Is this your first time entering a casino?” (Makoto)

“…It is.” (Furiae)

I look around restlessly. 

There were a lot of people coming and going on top of a bright red carpet. 

The sound of overflowing coins from the slots. 

A crowd of people were gathering at the poker tables and roulette.

And then there’s the cheers of the gallery and the winners. 

The cries of the people that lost. 

What a noisy place. 

“My Knight…you come here often?” (Furiae)

“No, this is my 2nd time here. This is my first time playing at a casino.” (Makoto)

“Then you are a beginner too.” (Furiae)

I thought I was brought to a place he came often to play around, but it looks like that’s not the case. 

He is not a hopeless man.

“And so, how do you play here?” (Furiae)

I ask this in excitement.  

I might have been affected by the peculiar atmosphere of the casino.

“Hmm, I don’t know much about it, so let’s just go around and check the place.” (Makoto)

“Got it! …By the way, do you have money?” (Furiae)

I got uneasy. 

You can’t play in a casino unless you have funds, right?

“It is okay. The Great Sage-sama gave me some pocket money!” (Makoto)

“…I-I see.” (Furiae)

He responded all nicely, but…that’s not your own money, is it?

You are a Country Designated Hero, so you get money from the royalty of Rozes, right? 

On top of that, you are even getting money from the Great Sage-sama of Highland…?

I feel like My Knight is becoming a leech. 

Moreover, he is using the money he gets in gambling… Maybe he really is trash?

“Come on, Princess. Let’s go.” (Makoto)

“Hey.” (Furiae)

He grabbed my hand and pulled me.

“Why are you grabbing my hand?” (Furiae)

Feeling the warmth of My Knight, my body got a bit hotter as if being affected by it. 

“There’s a lot of people, so it would be troubling if we were to get separated, right?” (Makoto)

My Knight looks at me with a dumbfounded face.

(Kuuh…his usual carefree face.) (Furiae)

I was vexed by this, so I hold his hand too in order to show that I don’t mind it either as I follow after him.

◇◇

Roulette, poker, black jack, slots, baccarat…

We went around checking a lot of places.

Our wins were…well, it felt like luck.

But this is my first time in a casino, and I enjoyed it to a decent degree. 

When we didn’t know what the rules were, we watched other people play, which was fun in itself.

At certain intervals there would be shows in the center of the casino, and we would watch that. 

Women with flashy clothes would do sensual dances, and the jesters would show tricks. 

The audience would heckle depending on their taste, and if they liked it, they would throw chips onto the stage. 

I took a break at a table that was a bit apart from the stage. 

As for My Knight, he is talking to a bunny girl nearby that’s giving out drinks.

“What’s that cocktail?” (Makoto)

“This here is a gimlet.” 

“Is it easy to drink?” (Makoto)

“Yes, it has a refreshing taste, and it is easy to drink.” 

“Then, I will have two.” (Makoto)

He came back to the table with drinks in hand. 

“Here you go, Princess.” (Makoto)

“…Thanks.” (Furiae)

What’s with you. So you can be considerate. 

We toasted and I took a sip of the cocktail. 

It is indeed refreshing and tasty. 

Good job, My Knight.

“Uwah, what’s this? The ratio is so high!” (Makoto)

My Knight frowned. 

You…

In these cases, not showing it in your face is what’s cool, you know?

“Oh well.” (Makoto)

My Knight gulped the whole cocktail down.

“Are you okay? You can’t hold your liquor, right?” (Furiae)

“Well, yeah…” (Makoto)

By the way, from the many games we went to in this casino, I lost almost all of them. 

When I challenged the games with small sums at first and then went ‘I think I understand it now’ and would go for higher sums, I would almost always lose. 

And I would lose all the money I won. 

It seems like Takatsuki Makoto has never used money on gambles, so he gave it up quickly saying ‘this is not for me’.

I led a paltry lifestyle in the Moon Country, so I am bewildered by a place like this where large sums of money fly around.

“Didn’t you play around with the money that you got from your believers, Princess?” (Makoto)

“There’s no way I would do that!” (Furiae)

What a thing to say! 

You saw me like that?! 

That’s why you brought me to a casino, huh.

“So, what do we do now? Do we move somewhere else?” (Furiae)

It seems like we don’t have any gambling talent, so I proposed to move elsewhere. 

“Hmm, it should be about time…” (Makoto)

“Brother! So you came!” 

“Wah!” (Furiae)

That scared me.

A young beastkin man placed an arm around the shoulders of My Knight from the back.

He is a young man, but his attire is quite good, and he is wearing expensive-looking clothes. 

“Oh, who is the one there…? I see! Is that the Princess-sama that I have heard about that my Brother is being a Guardian Knight of?” 

“Y-Yeah… And who are you?” (Furiae)

This man is acting overly familiar. 

But it doesn’t give an overbearing feeling.

“Ah, sorry about that. I am Peter Castor. Our family is the one managing this casino. Please have fun!” (Peter)

“I-Is that so… Nice to meet you.” (Furiae)

I avoid mentioning that I am the Moon Oracle and just answer in a vague way. 

“Thanks for your help in the incident before! Our family has a lot of beastkin, so it really helped us out. I want to give you our thanks in place of my father and brother.” (Peter)

He lowered his head deeply. 

Looks like he knows that I am the Moon Oracle, and yet, he is still talking to me without minding that. 

“I-I didn’t do much. Half of that was from My Knight after all.” (Furiae)

There was a rebellion planned by the beastkin and the demi-humans in Symphonia. 

The Snake Church sold drugs that served as intermediaries for their curse magic, in order to cause the rebellion. 

I used my Curse Dispel which was carried by the rain of My Knight to stop that. 

“It is a big deal for our family. You can ask anything of us today. Brother, too.” (Peter)

“Hmm, we learned just a few moments ago that we are not suited for gambling.” (Makoto)

He told him about how we were losing all the games until now. 

“Alright, then I will guide you to the recommended places of the Castor Family! Of course, there’s no need to pay!” (Peter)

“No no, we can’t do that…” (Makoto)

“This is our thanks for saving Symphonia. Please allow us at least this much, Brother!” (Peter)

“Well, if that’s the case… Princess, is that okay with you?” (Makoto)

“I don’t mind.” (Furiae)

The casino was fun, but I am also beginning to get tired of the noisiness. 

We were guided to the stores of the capital by Peter-san.

Unsurprisingly from someone of a mafia, they were pretty deep establishments. 

◇Takatsuki Makoto POV◇

“Good grief, you drank too much.” (Furiae)

“…Thanks, Princess.” (Makoto)

Peter introduced us to a whole lot of high class establishments, and then we returned while I borrowed the shoulder of Furiae-san.

We were treated by Peter in all the establishments, so it was hard to find the timing to wrap it up.

By the way, most of the establishments that Peter introduced us to would have beautiful women giving reception, so the moment we arrived, they would immediately offer drinks. 

But…

“Oh, you…are you trying to get close to My Knight while ignoring my presence?” (Furiae)

The Princess would say this to intimidate the hostesses, and would drive them away. 

That’s the most beautiful person in humanity for ya.

Even the beautiful assistants would shrink in front of Furiae-san.

Peter had a wry smile at that. 

Well, talking to women I don’t know would only tire me out, so it did help me out though.

And that’s how it went as we drank in the expensive restaurant, and I ended up getting drunk.

“Here, we are back.” (Furiae)

“Thanks…Princess.” (Makoto)

She brought me back to my own room. 

I told Furiae-san ‘I am fine on my own now’ once we got back, but she went ‘it is fine!’ as she brought me back to my room.

So kind. 

“Aah, I’m not feeling well. What should I do about today’s training…” (Makoto)

“You… You are planning on training after?” (Furiae)

I fall flat on my bed while having Furiae-san looking at me like a weirdo. 

Aah, so fluffy…

I wanna sleep. 

But I couldn’t train much today…

Maybe I should train for 2 hours at the very least…

“Hey, want me to cast you a spell that will sober you up?” (Furiae)

“Eh? You can do that?” (Makoto)

I didn’t know Furiae-san could use healing magic.

Since there’s the chance, let’s ask her to.

“Princess…please do.” (Makoto)

“Turn over here.” (Furiae)

“Okay.” (Makoto)

I turn and look at the ceiling. 

Furiae-san was looking down at me with her beautiful face.

After looking at each other for a while, Furiae-san’s face approached mine. 

Wait, eh? 

The long hair of Furiae-san brushed my face, and her face got really close to mine. 

W-Wait a moment.

The lips of Furiae-san lightly touched my forehead before I could react. 

“?!” (Makoto)

“It is a sleep curse. Sleep for today.” (Furiae)

I could faintly see Furiae-san smiling, but my eyelids felt heavy soon after.

Looks like the sobering spell was a lie.

“Oi…Prin…cess…” (Makoto)

“Good night, My Knight.” (Furiae)

I fell fast asleep with those last few words of hers.

◇◇

By the time I noticed, I was standing in a space where there’s nothing. 

The space of the Goddess.

But my heart is slightly stirred at present. 

“I was kissed by the girlfriend of Sakurai-kun…?” (Makoto)

Isn’t this bad?

No, but that was on the forehead.

That’s normal overseas, right? (Internet knowledge)

No, she isn’t even from that world.

Hmmm…

“What stupid thing are you thinking, Makoto?” (Noah)

“Ah, Noah-sama.” (Makoto)

I hurriedly kneel and greet her.

No good, no good.

I should change gears here. 

Clear Mind, Clear Mind.

“Aah, Mako-kun has put his hands on a new woman~.” (Eir)

“Eir-sama, that’s a…” (Makoto)

I was about to object to the words of the Water Goddess, but when I looked over there…I noticed.

What’s at the back of Noah-sama and Eir-sama…

There’s a small and cute girl with a displeased expression at their back.

“Who are you calling cute? That’s disrespectful, human.” 

She read my mind.

Also, it is true that ‘cute’ isn’t the most accurate way to describe her.

That perfect appearance of hers was inhuman.

A beauty impossible to reach by people.

“You… Didn’t you come to thank Makoto?” (Noah)

“You shouldn’t do that, Ira-chan. Saying something like that.” (Eir)

I understood with those words.

(…So it was you.) (Makoto)

The Destiny Goddess, Ira-sama, was standing there.

      1. i think she is like loli around 14/15 year age (ilya fate) so far i knew she has like flat chest more than makoto Harem

  2. Thank you for your hard work and have an amazing new year 😀
    You know, I was GONNA complain that the leadup to this ceremony will be longer then the event itself, but the ending with Ira makes it all worth it.
    Still hope she got a punishment for blatantly breaking the rules

    1. Seems like subsuming the consciousness of your Oracle for long periods of time, is only borderline illegal, because there’s consent (Oracle kinda has to say yes though), and she made sure that her Divine aura wasn’t causing any noticeable problems. So worse thing she’s gotten as a consequence, is Makoto dropping her credibility as a seer, by invalidating most of her recent prophecies.

      1. The Oracle does? I mean it didn’t seem like that was the case for Eir and Sophia but maybe I missed it. In any case, making her predictions wrong was indeed some sweet justice.
        Also casual mindreading is rude, the Goddess need to cut that out

      2. Where did the oracle’s consciousness even go? In the case of sofia, when eir descended, she didnt even remember what’s said and done, right?

        Also i think fate magic cant see makoto’s future, just like furiae back in fire country arc. So if it also applies to godess ira, makoto is probably like a wild number in her calculation

      3. …wait but if thats true then why did she ask Makoto to keep it a secret the first time-
        You know what? its not important

      4. “I had a weird dream. A dream where the Water Goddess, Eir-sama, descended. Even though there’s no way she would descend at a place like this.” (Sofia)
        Doesn’t that kind of imply the Goddesses can just play Grand Theft Body whenever they want?
        In any case as long as it doesn’t hurt the Oracle then split milk, lets just hope the Evil God doesn’t slip into Issac and become a villain with decent plans who can actually resist an evil monologue

  3. ““Why are you grabbing my hand?” (Furiae)
    Feeling the warmth of My Knight, my body got a bit hotter as if being affected by it.”
    Makoto, you womanizer.

    “Didn’t you play around with the money that you got from your believers, Princess?” (Makoto)
    What ? You saw her like that, Makoto ?

    “After looking at each other for a while, Furiae-san’s face approached mine.
    Wait, eh?
    The long hair of Furiae-san brushed my face, and her face got really close to mine.
    W-Wait a moment.
    The lips of Furiae-san lightly touched my forehead before I could react.
    “?!” (Makoto)
    “It is a sleep curse. Sleep for today.” (Furiae)
    I could faintly see Furiae-san smiling, but my eyelids felt heavy soon after.”
    YEEEEEEEESSSSS. She kissed Makoto ! I think that it is a sign that she is aware that her feelings for Makoto are of love. Now, she just needs a little push to confess to Makoto.

    Ira, the Destiny Goddess is here ! She will probably thank Makoto for saving Sakurai because her punishment may have been reduced or nullified thanks to him.

      1. Makoto said in the beginning that when he’s drunk, then he has trouble activating his skills like clear mind. For example, the forced event where Lucy wanted to join his party.

        So without clear mind active, Furiae enjoyed Makoto’s unfiltered reaction to her forehead kiss before he fell asleep.

    1. I still find it difficult for Furiae to confess his feelings to Makoto.
      but usually the furiae type is the type that realizes that it’s gone / gone.
      She Like serina to poncho in novel how to realist Hero rebuilt kingdom

    1. Well I mean, I’m overseas from Japan and I think a forehead kiss is no big deal, so checks out.

      I would highly suspect it hinted at something in a scenario like this, obviously, but don’t view it as a romantic gesture by necessity, even without the fact it might be an invocation method in this world.

  4. Ponkotsu gets on stage!!!!!
    What will she do?
    How will she thank him?
    And it seems Furiae is just a step away from pushing Makoto down.
    Looks like she might already be aware of her feelings but because of makoto’s obliviousness she might be hesitating about how to go about.

      1. I wonder if her personality doesn’t match her looks, maybe she’s of the inhuman machine/Vulcan persuasion of kuudere that sees only in black and white, or ends versus means.

  5. Ahh… Furiae has done it now. I wonder if Aya and Lucy saw that.

    And looks lie Makoto’s Goddess harem has increased to another one.

    Thank you for this chapter!!!

    1. They already know … Furi reaction when she found out that Makoto was the Great Sage’s Knight erased any doubts they had.

      1. All three of them left afterwards and left them alone. That was either story convenience or they left them alone purposely.

        1. Was on purpose ,the only revelation was the Great Sage ….. We thought that she saw him as friend but by Eir words seems like she is in love with him.

  6. For a moment I thought it was the Moon Goddess, even after they say Destiny Goddess I was “??? The Moons Goddess is also the god of destiny?” it was only after a seconds that my brain process it as Ira-chan. It’s good that we finally see his apparance, well, “see” aka read, and other goddess in the space of Makoto (I suppose is not really his space but you know what I mean) is always good, I see that as a acquisition of a new future harem member.

  7. Well this is unexpected, a date between just the two of them and makoto being somewhat considerate, can’t think of a better way to start the year other than this! Thanks Regiokai as expected of your quality works! and btw the message from before the chapter really hit the spot, it made me proud to be a part of this wholesome community and I’ve grown to love it as well, your work has become a link for me to reach out new people who also love your work! I really can’t thank you enough for this Regiokai but still allow me to say this thank you for translating and creating this community.

  8. LMAO i tot Ira would be the Onee-sama type but… >.<
    Thanks for the chapter and happy new year Reigokai!!!

  9. AHHHHHH this dense guy!!?! Well its Makoto anyway…. the guy who initially thought Lucy and Emily was part of Jean’s harem, Sophia was a fiancé of Sakurai, Janet hated him, and now Furiae is the secret girlfriends of Sakurai.

    Noah characterized his flaws the best. He’s the type to be careful and diligent before clearing a scenario, then loses all interest afterwards. He also learned to unconsciously bring a girl’s mood down, then bring it right up lol.

    Great Sage-sama the sugar momma of Makotos!

    After this chapter I can’t help but play “I won’t say I’m in love” theme song in the Disney Hercules movie for Furiae. LOL she’s even keeping the Hostess girls away from Makoto on their date.

    1. Makoto isn’t dense at all. You are mixing him being dense with him being indifferent or uninterested.

      From his perspective Sakurai and Furiae are an item, she was even flirting with him in front of Makoto and Noel, so he doesn’t want to get involved with her.

      Janet did hate him at first and after that, regardless of her opinion, he wasn’t interested in her so he tried to keep his distance.

      For example, why should he care that Janet is interested in him? He’s already got plenty of girls throwing themselves at him. Why get involved with a girl who’s just been rude and annoying to him?

      1. Janet not so much until she confessed openly. I am only pointing out how a number of love interests of Makoto’s started off as him misunderstanding their relationship with other people excluding Janet.

        Makoto is dense because he cannot read the mood or guess from subtle hints or changes in people. The perks from clear mind make it that much more prevalent. What would you call a dense person then in your own words if not that?

        Being emotionless or indifferent does not take away his dense personality traits like Noah said.

      2. A “dense MC” normally means an MC that is oblivious to the affection of all the girls around him.

        It’s true that he used to be oblivious at first but a big part of that was his self-esteem issues. Now he seems relatively aware of things. I mean, he has 3 active girlfriends after all.

        It’s been shown in a previous chapter that Makoto is probably aware that Furiae might like him but is just purposely refusing to think about it since he is aware that there is a vague relationship between Sakurai and Furiae and just doesn’t want to be involved.

        Furiae but it has been confirmed in a PoV chapter that Furiae at least used to like Sakurai. Does she really not like Sakurai at all any more? And what about Sakurai? Does he like Furiae or is he just sympathetic towards her?

        It’s 100 times easier to just pretend to be oblivious to her feelings. Exactly like he did with Janet until she forced the issue.

      3. He’s not aware, he is only taking into account his responsibilities as a knight to better her mood. Aya did attempt to subtlly hint that Furiae is taking a fancy to him, but Makoto had deaf senses to the otherwise. He still misunderstands many things about Furiae when he should not (like Furiae playing with money from her believers). Aya, Lucy, Sophia, and other characters are aware to some extent more or less, but Makoto will not entertain the possibility. The lack of self-esteem or self-awareness does not negate his dense trait.

        We had divine intervention from Noah and Eir just to expedite these romantic relationships to headwind. Otherwise, we would have waited a few hundred chapters for these developments.

        Being dense is more about being oblivious to girls feelings, its about their surroundings and their reactions to it giving the character trait dense its substance. If you compare Ichika from Infinite Stratos to Makoto he may seem like a Saint in regards to the former, but Ichika is an extreme outlier. Makoto is the whole package of denseness, instead of being dense in only one area.

        In the LN the distinction is made more clear with romance like Furiae’s feeling towards Sakurai being gratitude and friendship. In the WN, its doubtful as well since Furiae is not possessive with Sakurai except when Noel is around, but with Makoto she’s more possessive and jealous.

  10. Well this a good way to start off the new year. A Furi date chapter.

    Anyways Furi is opening up more. She’s calling Makoto and Fujiyan by their names even if it’s only in her mind. At least they managed to resolve Furi’s misunderstanding.

    So is this arc basically just gonna be about Makoto going on dates and raising his affection points with his harem members? Cuz I’m totally fine with that. I do wish Mary would show up for this. She’s like the forgotten harem member. Anyways looks like Makoto’s harem seem to know what’s up and are being considerate of Furi since they all come up with some excuse to leave her and Makoto alone.

    It was kinda funny how Furi worried that Makoto was gonna be a no-good man when they went into a casino because she remembered her caretaker telling her that gamblers are trash.

    Finally she kissed him even if it was only on the forehead. She may not be 100% aware of her feelings yet but it’s pretty obvious that all she needs is a little push. Maybe she get an epiphany from some event or having a talk with the girls.

    Aaannnddd Makoto is still dense as hell. He still thinks Furi is Sakurai’s girlfriend. I wish Noah and the others would just flat out tell him that no she isn’t. It’d save everybody a lot of trouble I think. Anyways looks like it’s time to meet the Ponkotsu Goddess Ira.

  11. Thank you kami-sama. Thank you for your heartfelt words.
    Welp 200. Another day another milestone. Tsuki’s caught up so might be time to catch up on those sponsored chaps before we catch up here too. Only 69 to go. Kami-sama prolly should start considering next project so upu can take your time choosing one you want to do. Keeping with mako-kun tradition I nominate Shingan no Yuusha as always.

  12. Thank you for chapter, and Happy new year.
    I like this author, when he use character’s POV. He isn’t repeat same event but connecting event from many characters. Some novel that I ever read use many characters POV but repeating same event over and over until reader got bored.

  13. Thanks for the chapter and Happy new year everyone. Well that kiss on the forehead was unexpected but then again no one’s complaining. It seemed Furi smiled since she got a reaction from Makato but the dude was worried about a completely different thing. I personally can’t blame or call him dense because to him, she was always Sakurai’s love interest cum girlfriend.

  14. Happy New Year and thanks for the chapter! Starting 2021 with a Furiae POV chapter was a treat. Looks like things are slowly progressing, though Furiae still needs to clear up Makoto’s misunderstanding about her and Sakurai. Ira showing up in person to apologize promises to be amusing.

  15. Thanks for the chapter~! And Happy New Year!

    Furi date with Makoto~! Ends up with a forehead kiss. She’s soften a lot alright, while Makoto still thinks that she’s in love with Sakurai.

    Then. we have Ira at the end chapter. Ponkotsu tsun goddess is here. Sharp mouthed, but have a clumsy side.

    As an aside, the author says that gods were selfish and unreasonable, that’s why gods in his works were portrayed as such, even the “good” ones. While also saying Lovecraftian myths were his favorites.

    I think we all recognized it from the beginning, but between madness upon seeing true form, named “Old Gods” who differed from Titans, and sealed in the deep ocean, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if Noah turned out to be Cthulhu. At least he definitely takes some notes from there.

  16. Happy New Year nad also thank you for all of the great worls from the previous year.
    The goddesses aren’t helping Makoto in his misunderstanding about Furi-san not being Sakurai’s girlfriend? I bet Makoto would fess up to Sakurai first about it or ask Fujiyan dor advice and finds out about the whole misunderstanding.

  17. Hey, thanks for making the year better for all of us! I’ve always been looking forward to the new chapters. I’m reading a few novels but I can honestly say this is the one that warms my heart the most… whenever I see an update on NU and it isn’t this I get a little disappointed 😅

    P.S. I sent a little New Year’s gift in your way; you may turn it into sponsored chapters or you may take it as a thank you for all your hard work so far 😊 Sorry it took 200 chapters 😳 but I guess it’s better late than never…

  18. > Furi-san: “…At least show a bit of interest.”
    He is interested in you. Remember when you kicked him, he quickly shot a glance on your pantsu which is black, but the problem is was it had a lace or not has not been determiend until now.
    He’s thinking of you until now…

    > Furi-san: “I lunged at him, straddled him, and tried to choke him (apparently).”
    MMA other world version, featuring the most beautiful woman on the planet who will hug you so intently….

    > Having Furi-san face so close to you, i think by her smell alone you will be flustered alot, and the touch of her hair will let you blush a lot, and her soft kiss on the forhead will let your conciousness pass away as sleep.

  19. Thanks for the chapter end happy new year! ^^
    As expected of the title it was a date chapter.
    Wonder how the nobles will react with him paying visit to the mafia instead of nobility? x)
    It was a good sneak attack from Furiae there. 🙂
    Time for more Goddesses’s shenanigans now.

  20. Thank you very much for your hard work.

    Thank you very much for the chapter.

    Happy New Year.

    Very nice chapter, a date with furi-sama, and the appearance of ira-sama.

  21. the lunge remind me of Taiyo and fairy Hera, which has a Hobby of Headbutting Taiyo Little Bro 😂😂.

    Haha, seems he going to rest more, even though he went through to become. guardian knight of Great Sage.

    Seems They did not use Destiny Magic huh, well if good at math and memory black jack should safe as you can just do card counting in mind.

    So Ira is a loli-type i thought she is Tsundere and Pettanko Combo

  22. Oh yeah…I should get around to catching up on Tsuki soon. It was sorta like this with Dragon Knight too, where the chapters were so long, I felt like I had to set aside time to read them. Anyway, Happy New Year!

    Takki is as insensitive as ever, but it’s nice to see Furiae’s inner thoughts here. She’s definitely lightened up a lot since joining the weird bunch, and now she’s gotten to see sides of the world that aren’t as ugly as she’s lived with.

    Ira, huh? We’re finally gonna talk to this little troublemaker. Let’s be sure to give her shit.

  23. Thank you so much translator. You are one of the OG translator that i knew. It gladdens me that you are still going strong.
    I dropped the tsuki though because i got super annoyed how he is ignoring his harem and not committing with them. He was acting like he is their parent. I wonder though if it changed? My only disappointment to the novel itself is the romance area.

  24. thanks for chap
    furi is changing~ and wow she really guarded him huh?

    so she is a loli , i wonder what their age order is tho, ik noah should be oldest goddess, and althena among new goddesses

    1. After you finish with this marathon you might want to give it a try to the light novel version.
      You can easily find it in novel updates or searching for “its a me-translation”
