WM – Chapter 203: Takatsuki Makoto speaks to the Light Hero

“Takatsuki-kun, did you wait?” (Sakurai)

“I arrived not that long ago, Sakurai-kun.” (Makoto)

It ended up like the conversation of a couple meeting up.

I had my second beer. 

Sakurai-kun ordered fruit juice and a number of dishes. 

Once the drinks came, we toasted and had some casual talk. 

Since the time Sakurai-kun defeated the Demon Lord, the morale of the Sun Knights has apparently increased.

He laughed saying training was rough.

Him looking unenergetic a moment ago was my imagination?

“By the way, I have something I want to consult with you.” (Sakurai)

“…What’s the matter?” (Makoto)

The face of Sakurai-kun got serious. 

Looks like we will be getting to the main topic now. 

“At the time when we fought the Beast King…I thought I was done for.” (Sakurai)

“…Yeah, that was a pretty dangerous situation.” (Makoto)

About that time, huh.

Geez, that event has already ended, so shouldn’t you be thinking about the next step instead? 

The Destiny Goddess was also pretty motivated.

I drank my ale while thinking that. 

“Takatsuki-kun, at the battle against the Great Demon Lord, the chances of me losing my life are high. At that time, can you please defeat the Great Demon Lord with the other Heroes in my stead?” (Sakurai)

“…?” 

Sakurai-kun said something weird.

I tilt my head and Sakurai-kun leaned forward and strengthened his tone. 

“Takatsuki-kun, if it is you who can deal with any situation calmly, even against the fearsome Great Demon Lord…” (Sakurai)

“Wait a bit, Sakurai-kun.” (Makoto)

I felt something strange here, and cut off the words of Sakurai-kun.

“It is true that the Destiny Magic said ‘the Light Hero will be killed by the Great Demon Lord’.” (Makoto)

“Y-Yeah… That’s right. That’s why I am asking you to…” (Sakurai)

“Can’t you make countermeasures for after you die?” (Makoto)

“Eh?” (Sakurai)

Sakurai-kun opens his mouth wide at my words.

His face was saying he didn’t think of that. 

“This world has Skills that let you revive after dying. There should be items with that same effect, you know.” (Makoto)

“Something like that is…” (Sakurai)

“I have met someone with a Skill like that, so there’s no doubt.” (Makoto)

I’m talking about Sa-san here though.

Her Action Game Player Skill: Remaining Lives.

“But…an item with such an effect would be a national treasure or a sacred treasure…” (Sakurai)

“Who cares if it is a national treasure or a sacred treasure? If Sakurai-kun loses, humanity loses after all.” (Makoto)

“True… But if there were such an outstanding magic tool, there’s no way Noel wouldn’t know about it.” (Sakurai)

“Hmm…right.” (Makoto)

It is true that Princess Noel who is deeply in love with Sakurai-kun wouldn’t miss something like that. 

…But I have an idea.

If it is Ira-sama…wouldn’t Ira-sama know? 

She is a Goddess after all! She should know at least that much! 

“I will go meet an acquaintance.” (Makoto)

“Okay… Thanks, Takatsuki-kun. Sorry, I have gotten faint-hearted lately…” (Sakurai)

“Sakurai-kun…” (Makoto)

So he really isn’t feeling well.

Hmm, how should I cheer him up…?

Kuh, I loathe my antisocial personality that can’t think up nice words! 

“You two Heroes are making pretty pathetic faces.” 

“Heya, Takatsuki-kun, Ryosuke.” 

While Sakurai-kun and I were talking about a variety of things, two girls suddenly spoke to us. 

‘Reverse pick-up?!’, is what I thought, but we know both of them.

“Hm? Princess and Yokoyama-san?” (Makoto)

“Saki, and Furiae, too. What’s the matter?” (Sakurai)

Furiae-san is in her usual dress-looking one piece. 

Yokoyama-san isn’t in her usual armored look but a casual blouse and skirt. 

“It would be boring to drink with just two men, right? We came here to accompany you.” (Furiae)

“Excuse the intrusion.” (Saki)

Furiae-san sat by my side, and Yokoyama-san at Sakurai-kun’s side.

Wait, isn’t this the wife and lover combination?! 

Is this okay? Is what I thought…but these two actually get along. 

It is just Princess Noel and Furiae-san who don’t get along. 

“What brings you here?” (Makoto)

I asked Furiae-san in a low voice.

“I was walking around the city, and met the Holy Knight-san. Then I heard that you and Ryosuke were meeting here, so I came to hang out. Got a problem?” (Furiae)

“Not really.” (Makoto)

Is this okay…? Princess Noel was angry yesterday though.

Well, it should be fine as long as she doesn’t know. 

“You already finished your talk, right? Ryosuke is a busy person. We may be together at work, but we can’t hang out in our free time.” (Saki)

Yokoyama-san pouts.

Yup, the number one beauty in our classroom is indeed cute. 

“What are you doing getting charmed by the wife of someone else?” (Furiae)

Furiae-san pulls my cheek.

“I am not getting charmed.” (Makoto)

“Furiae and Takatsuki-kun get along well.” (Saki)

“R-Really?! It is normal!” (Furiae)

Furiae-san hurriedly let go when Yokoyama-san said that. 

“You seem to be doing well, Furiae.” (Sakurai)

“And you don’t seem to be doing well, Ryosuke.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san said this straight, and Sakurai-kun smiled slightly sad. 

“Yeah, since the battle against the demon lord army of before, Ryosuke has been feeling down.” (Saki)

“Hmph, I will listen, so go ahead and say it. Ah! Before that, I want to drink some wine!” (Furiae)

“I want a sangria~. This place has a good selection of drinks and the food is tasty.” (Saki)

“Hey, Holy Swordswoman-san, is the fish pie here good?” (Furiae)

“It is! I also recommend the vegetable terrine and the shrimp fritters!” (Saki)

Furiae-san and Yokoyama-san were getting lively choosing from the menu.

The place got cheerful in an instant. 

Having girls around really does liven up the place! 

Sakurai-kun also seemed slightly more cheerful now. 

“Now that I think about it…” (Saki)

Yokoyama-san looks over here. 

“I told this to Furiae-san as well, but the movements of the Pope-sama have been suspicious lately. You are the Apostle of an Evil God, aren’t you, Takatsuki-kun? Be careful of the Pope-sama and the Templars.” (Saki)

“Be careful?” (Makoto)

“What does that mean, Saki?” (Sakurai)

Sakurai-kun and I tilt our heads at what Yokoyama-san said.

“It might be hard to notice for Ryosuke since the Pope-sama is amiable with him, but the Pope-sama is a personage that’s incredibly harsh on other religions.” (Saki)

“…I know that. Since the Pope of this generation took post, the oppression towards the people of the Moon Country has intensified.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san bit her fingers annoyed. 

It is true that he sees Furiae-san and me like mortal enemies. 

“The parents of the Pope-sama apparently died in a terrorist attack of the Snake Church in the past. Since then, he has been burning for vengeance towards the Snake Church…” (Saki)

“…Didn’t it get achieved the other day?” (Makoto)

The Highland Hero Alex wiped out the hideout of the Snake Church. 

Hasn’t the revenge of the Pope-sama already been achieved?

“That’s…he said that in order to not let a second Snake Church be born, he will be taking out the sprouts of evil. And so, he has been listing the devilkin and believers of the Gods from other religions who have high influence…” (Saki)

“Wouldn’t Takatsuki-kun and Furiae fall into that category…?” (Sakurai)

“What a pain of a guy…” (Furiae)

“Meaning that he is making a list of potential criminals…?” (Makoto)

The Pope is someone more dangerous than I thought! 

“But I have good news.” (Saki)

Yokoyama-san looked at me and smiled.

“You have become the White Great Sage-sama’s Guardian Knight, right? Even the Pope-sama can’t put a hand on the Great Sage-sama, so as a result, you have secured your safety, Takatsuki-kun.” (Saki)

“I see! Could it be that you saw this coming, Takatsuki-kun?” (Sakurai)

“Y-You could say that.” (Makoto)

Sakurai-kun and Yokoyama-san took it super positively. 

I didn’t think too deeply about it…

“I am fine, but…I am worried about Princess.” (Makoto)

“Hmph, I am okay. The Moon Oracle being hated by the Goddess Church is basically a fact by this point.” (Furiae)

“But be careful. It would be best to not walk around alone like you did today.” (Saki)

“Right, thanks.” (Makoto)

Yokoyama-san is a good girl. 

After that, we ate while we chatted. 

The conversation got specially lively when talking about the Demon Lord battle the other day. 

“The sword magic of Sakurai-kun was powerful.” (Makoto)

“I haven’t been able to borrow the power of such a high angel in my training though.” (Sakurai)

“Yeah. When Takatsuki-kun is closeby, Ryosuke is in really good shape.” (Saki)

“Really?” (Makoto)

“It is! That’s why you should join my division, Takatsuki-kun!” (Sakurai)

“The training of the Sun Knights is said to be the roughest in the continent though…” (Makoto)

I like training on my own, but an army has to move in groups. 

“It is okay, I will be there with you!” (Sakurai)

“Sakurai-kun, my hand hurts.” (Makoto)

“Ryosuke, are you drunk?” (Saki)

“What? You guys were an item?” (Furiae)

“What are you saying?” (Makoto)

It was so lively we were able to talk about silly stuff like that. 

“Ryosuke seems to have cheered up a bit now. I am glad I got him to meet you, Takatsuki-kun.” (Saki)

Yokoyama-san smiled. 

“How devoted. Supporting Ryosuke in both public and in private. Being the fiancee of the Light Hero, shouldn’t you be able to take it easier? There’s no need to show up in the battlefield too.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san sighs as if amazed by this. 

True. I do feel like the burden on Yokoyama-san is quite heavy. 

“Well…yeah. But I am the only one who can fight by the side of Ryosuke…” (Saki)

“Didn’t all the other classmates have strong Skills?” (Makoto)

What happened to the whole bunch of people that were in the Water Temple? 

“Even if you have strong Skills, you have to master them. Veteran soldiers end up being stronger in the end.” (Sakurai)

Sakurai-kun made a complicated expression.

“Hmm..is that how it is?” (Makoto)

I am doing my best with my Elementary Rank Water Magic though. What self-indulgent people! 

Well, it is because the Spirit User that Noah-sama gave me is strong, so okay! 

“But the number one duty of the Light Hero’s fiancees is to bear his children, right? Doesn’t it distress you, Holy Swordswoman-san?” (Furiae)

Furiae-san had alcohol in her system, and she made a more private question with a grin on her face.

Sakurai-kun is making a troubled expression. Well, of course he would be. 

“Hmm…a child, huh. I am still in my teens, so becoming a mother so soon is a bit… Also, I am the aide of Ryosuke, so I can stay the longest by his side even within his fiancees. His time with me is longer than that of even Princess Noel.” (Saki)

“I see.” (Furiae)

It is true that Yokoyama-san might be the closest one to him among the fiancees.

“…Also…I am simply using contraception…we are properly doing it. Isn’t that right, Ryosuke?” (Saki)

“Ah…yeah.” (Sakurai)

Is Yokoyama-san drunk?! 

We don’t need such a raunchy topic! 

“A-Aah…I see.” (Furiae)

Even though Furiae-san threw the topic herself, she ended up with a red face. 

Furiae-san is unexpectedly the innocent type. 

“T-Takatsuki-kun, how have things been going with Aya-chan?! That girl proclaimed ‘I will become the wife of Takatsuki-kun!’. Did you marry already?!” (Saki)

Yokoyama-san must have noticed the weird atmosphere here, she forcefully changed the topic. 

“…About marriage, well…eventually.” (Makoto)

“Are you properly giving her attention? Aya-chan said she wanted 4 children, so you have to work hard!” (Saki)

Hasn’t the topic returned in a really subtle way?! 

“Ah, yeah…I will do my best.” (Makoto)

“You are the fiance of Princess Sofia, right? You also have a cute elf girlfriend called Lucy-san. Are you properly taking alone time with Aya-chan?” (Saki)

The barrage of questions from Yokoyama-san isn’t stopping! 

“U-Uhm…so-so?” (Makoto)

Sorry, I am training all the time and don’t make much time. 

Yokoyama-san looked at me with a straight stare.

“When was the last time you did it with Aya-chan? Spit it out!” (Saki)

Yokoyama-san is the annoying drunk! 

“Saki, you are troubling Takatsuki-kun here…” (Sakurai)

“Shut up, Ryosuke! Now, answer!” (Saki)

“…Ugh.” (Makoto)

This is indeed troubling. 

Even if I were to give a vague answer here, Yokoyama-san and Sa-san are friends, so I feel like they would find out immediately. 

Let’s be honest here…

“In the first place, My Knight is a virgin, you know?” (Furiae)

Furiae-san went ‘haah, good grief’ as she exposed this. 

“EH?” (Sakurai)

“Eeeeeeeeh?!” (Saki)

There’s no need to raise your voice so loudly in surprise, Sakurai-kun and Yokoyama-san! 

“Takatsuki-kun…you are travelling together with Aya-chan, right?” (Saki)

“It doesn’t sound as convincing coming from me, but…I think you should give her a bit more attention.” (Sakurai)

Guh! Having my classmates admonish me feels embarrassing. 

While I was thinking about how to respond to them, Furiae-san spoke first. 

“My Knight trains till 2 a.m. and wakes up faster than everyone else. He has no time to tend to others.” (Furiae)

““…””

“Isn’t that fine? My Skills are weak, so I have to train to compensate.” (Makoto)

“I think it should be okay to rest for a bit.” (Furiae)

“A second of leniency can lead to death!” (Makoto)

“I don’t get what you are saying…” (Furiae)

Me neither. 

“Is Takatsuki-kun leading such a lifestyle all the time?” (Sakurai)

“Since when has he been doing that?” (Saki)

“Since the day I came to this world.” (Makoto)

““…””

The two fell silent. 

“Ryosuke, your childhood friend is a lunatic.” (Saki)

“No wonder Takatsuki-kun is strong… His way of training is on a whole different level from others.” (Sakurai)

“If you praise him too much, it will get in the head of My Knight.” (Furiae)

What a terrible thing to say. 

Also, they are most likely not praising me here, Furiae-san.

The drinking party ended in that fashion.

I think Sakurai-kun was smiling a bit there. 

He might have cheered up a bit.

-On our way back.

“I drank too much…” (Furiae)

“Our roles have changed from last time.” (Makoto)

I was walking the way back to the lodging while lending a shoulder to Furiae-san. 

Now that I think about it, it is a duo of Evil God Apostle and devilkin. 

…I should use Detection just in case.

I don’t think we will get attacked by Templars though.

“Hey…My Knight.” (Furiae)

“Hm? What is it?” (Makoto)

“In the past…I liked Ryosuke a bit.” (Furiae)

“I see.” (Makoto)

I noticed after answering. 

‘In the past’? Is it different now?

“ I didn’t know much about the world after coming out from the Moon Country. Because he was the only one who was kind to me in a Highland filled with enemies, I mistook it. That maybe Ryosuke liked me too.” (Furiae)

“Sakurai-kun is a lady-killer after all…” (Makoto)

I think Sakurai-kun perceived Furiae-san favorably though.

But he has more than 20 fiancees, so it is a bit hard to become the person he loves. 

“My view of the world has widened lately. Thanks to you bringing me everywhere, My Knight.” (Furiae)

“I see, that’s great.” (Makoto)

It seems like these few months have been good experience for Furiae-san.

“I hope there’s a next good encounter for you, Princess.” (Makoto)

“…You…is that on purpose?” (Furiae)

“What?” (Makoto)

“Stop that dumbfounded face, it annoys me… Hey, My Knight, who is your most important person? The Princess-sama of the Water Country? The Mage-san? The Fire Country’s Hero-san? Or maybe…someone else?” (Furiae)

The drunk Furiae-san asks me this with slightly damp eyes. 

“Most…?” (Makoto)

Even if you ask me that…the one who I first met when arriving in this world…

“Noah-sama, maybe?” (Makoto)

The first one to believe in me was the Goddess.

“Isn’t that…your Goddess? Well, there’s no chance of sticking with her, so I guess that’s better.” (Furiae)

“Sticking?” (Makoto)

“It is nothing. We arrived at the lodging. I will go to sleep now. Good night, My Knight.” (Furiae)

Saying this, Furiae-san entered her own room.

Her steps were unexpectedly steady. 

◇The next morning◇

While I was training at the inn, I heard the hurried steps of Fuji-yan. 

This sound is Fuji-yan’s.

I feel like something similar happened yesterday.

“Takki-dono!” 

“Brother!” 

But it was different in the part that Peter is by his side.

“Please listen to this!” (Fuji)

“This is terrible, Brother! Please come at once!” (Peter)

“W-What?!” (Makoto)

““Just come, just come!””

I was brought outside without understanding well what was going on.

Looks like we are heading to the back of the Highland Castle where the exercise grounds of the army is. 

“Fuji-yan, Peter, what’s the matter?” (Makoto)

“The Destiny Goddess Ira-sama has descended!” (Fuji)

“Ira-sama has descended?” (Makoto)

Wasn’t that Goddess already here since way before? 

No, that’s not it. 

The only ones who knew that were Noah-sama and Eir-sama. 

“That’s right! The Destiny Goddess Ira-sama has never shown up in other countries, but it was hurriedly decided that she would descend in order to cheer up the people of Highland.” (Peter)

“So we thought we should invite you as well, Takki-dono!” (Fuji)

“Wow, Fujiwara-san, that ticket is a premium. It has an exorbitant price, you know!” (Peter)

“Who knows how much money I put into getting 3 of these!” (Fuji)

“Brother, today is the best day ever!” (Peter)

“Huh…?” (Makoto)

I couldn’t keep up with the excitement of the two.

Now that I think about it, Fuji-yan and Peter were believers of the Destiny Goddess Ira-sama, right?

I headed to the location just as told.

-At the back of the Highland Castle. 

It is apparently prohibited to have people aside from the army here normally, but it is currently crowded with people. 

They are all apparently believers of Ira-sama, but it feels strange. 

“Ira-sama ★ life!” 

“Ira-sama ★ love!” 

“I can die for the sake of Ira-sama!” 

Was what was written, and there were men wearing happi coats and holding fans.

“Okay, please line up in order.” 

“You must not cut in. Ira-sama hates people who don’t follow rules.” 

“The purchase of goods is limited to 3 per person! Reselling is not allowed!” 

What seemed like staff members were using voice amplification magic to guide the people.

W-What’s this? 

“Now now, we go over here.” (Fuji)

“Fujiwara-san, this is my first time in VIP seats!” (Peter)

Fuji-yan and Peter’s excitement levels were high.

What’s about to begin here? 

After that, the exercise grounds were filled to 120%. 

The excitement of the people that were waiting for something was overwhelming.

And then, that moment came.

The surroundings were covered in darkness.

(Enemy attack?!) (Makoto)

I was surprised, but looks like it was simply a barrier that blocks light. 

What happened next was spotlights illuminating the stage. 

That’s…the sun spell, Illuminating Light…maybe?

And then, a cute girl was standing in the spotlight.

Wait, that’s Esther-san.

She was wearing a fluttery and glittery dress, so I couldn’t tell it was her for an instant. 

Or more like, what’s happening…?

The Destiny Oracle Esther-san speaks.

“Hi~☆! It is everyone’s idol, Ira-chan☆! So many people have gathered to see me, thank you~☆! Have a whoooole lot of fun today, okay☆?” 

………Excuse me, what?

      1. @totagamer1, ahh so that’s why manga are too fast, and sometimes it skip and cut. Compared to the novel. I thought they…. Thanks for the info 😃😃😃😂

      2. @totagamer1, ahh so that’s why manga are too fast, and sometimes it skip and cut. Compared to the novel. I thought they…. Thanks for the info 😃😃😃😂

      1. Hahhah the manga is starting to get interesting but still i think the manga is too fast. Or is it me. Feeling it.
        Anyways i can’t wait for couple of next ones😂

      2. Yeah…those illustrations look nothing like I imagine the characters. Way, way too cutesy.

        Still, for a cliff notes version of the story, the manga doesn’t seem too bad. 😉

      3. @Nathaniel Most Manga are like that, it’s due to Page Limit so they need skip some story some even have whole arc got Cut.

      4. For me, the way the characters are drawn in the manga feels a bit lacking.. Their body proportion is a bit off, and they all look like kids, contrary to how the novel portrays each character in details.. Like Lucy for example.. She’s supposed to be smokin’ hot (sexy) without her mantle, but she looks chubby in the manga (chap. 7).. For Lucas my impression from the novel is similar to Gildarts (Fairy Tail reference).. and Marie-san (guild receptionist) supposed to have this onee-san feel.. one more thing I noticed about the way they are drawn is their cheeks… not sure how to describe it but I’m sure you’ll get what I mean..

        Other than that… It’s still a great manga – highly recommended 😀

  1. It is funny how much Tsuki and WM end up overlapping in a lot of events.
    When orphanages showed up in Tsuki, an orphanage also showed up in WM. When the war began in Tsuki, the war began in WM. When idols showed up in Tsuki, we now get an idol in WM.
    There’s a few other more, but these are the ones that I could think up on the top of my head. It is amusing how the stars align for these two stories. What scary coincidences.

    1. Lol, this made me remember someone in Tsuki Discussions in NU confuse with those two and ask why sometimes the chapters seem like they’re from different novel XD

        – on twitter they don’t follow each other but they follow some of the same people

      1. Am I the only one who is clueless about who Peter is? At first I said, “Oh, you mean Leo, Sophia’s little brother.” But he’s not a worshipper of Ira. Who is Peter? Where did he come from? Goddamnit Brain!!!

      1. I think this is the real Esther… or should I say this is a persona created by Esther and not the real Ira? Probably.

    2. iirc arent they name the same too, 😁
      still waiting few more chap..
      also just asking if someone remeber which chapter where he is told by Japan God that ability given by the Goddess is actually dangerous (where he can talk normally)

  2. “In the past…I liked Ryosuke a bit.” (Furiae)
    Furiae finally realized that her feelings for Sakurai weren’t love. She also probably realized that she loves Makoto.

    “Stop that dumbfounded face, it annoys me… Hey, My Knight, who is your most important person? The Princess-sama of the Water Country? The Mage-san? The Fire Country’s Hero-san? Or maybe…someone else?” (Furiae)
    Makoto, you should realize that if Furiae ask a question like that to you, she may have feelings for you. Fortunately, Makoto didn’t lie to her and told her the truth.
    Also, Furiae pretended to be drunk in order to make Makoto answers her question.

    Ira is an… idol ? Why every novel that have Makoto as a main character has idols ? Well, they did mention that the religion in Cameron was peculiar.
    Anyway, Ira is cute !

    1. I don’t remember some Boat Bearer has an Idol in his world… But some nekomimi one has one (or maybe more lol)

    2. I dont think thats ira, it’s probably the real esther, thats why ppl that know esther was suspicious of her when she was possessed by ira

  3. I’m not sure about the light hero taking a blow from Furiae being stolen, but I am sure she will keep bothering Noel anyway.
    The public side of the loli goddess is rather weird but… commercial country wining money by having a marketable goddess sounds posible?

    Thanks a lot for the chapter

    1. Probably that’s why she’s called the god that adored by merchants ….. Merchant makes and sell Idol Ira sama goods and profits goes to both the merchants and the church of Destiny goddess Ira.

  4. Hahahahah, damn makoto just say that he love noah most other than his girls, good job makoto straight and safe answer.

    Yesssss the time of Furiae shipping is starting.

    Sigh, the pope is starting to move. I knew it sooner or later he would become a problem.

    Ira is an idol.
    Excuse me what? 😂😂😂.
    Makoto is shock to the fullest. Even me damn i didn’t see that coming 😂

      1. @gavin lim, i don’t think that mental shock can be healed by magic, i think makoto’s belief for Ira squash, for me it feels like he was hit by a ball and the ball was no where to be found. 😂😂😂

  5. TFW Makoto said that Noah is his most important person and she didn’t even appeared to flirt with him that night.

    Also Ira, as expected from the skill descriptions in Makoto’s book, has a high spirited side to her. Is it all acting, tho? From Noah saying she had a bad personality, plus her action when she descended permanently, I’d think so.

  6. HAAAAIIIII~~~!!!
    MINNA NO MEGAMI AIDORU, IRA-CHAN DESSSSSSU~~~!!!!!

    Is how I like to imagine how Ira would be like.

  7. > furi san hinting her feelings to makoto, if i were makoto, i will be clueless the same as him because
    1. i already had fiancees, and my common sense dictates only one fiancee to be wife in whole life, and somehow following only the sense of relationship on this world in a harem style.
    2. sa san and lucys vigor were too much to handle, making more girls like them will make makoto explodes in sense of responsibilities
    3. the addition of princess sofia was a real stop gauge for makoto in making his harem to increase. i think he was been feeling conflicted a little bit there because he feels he was being a bit confined in the political stage when he join princess sofia in her political endeavor on their rally against the demon lords.
    4. thinking about being the fiancee of the most beautiful girl in the world, which is furi san, even i can only think of such on my nightime routine together with them. in case of makoto, since he really understood he was only a mob originally, then such thinking cannot be overwritten in a short time

    > well, ira chan being an idol, i approve, though she’s like a loli dancing on the stage. i prefer noah on the stage

    1. well, yes agree.
      also, Makoto always think Furi is Light Hero (Sakurai Ryosuke) girlfriend.
      probably Makoto think that Furi want someone to only love her, not like the Light Hero with so many fiancee. so Makoto (subconsciously) also exclude himself because Makoto already has 3 fiancee

  8. yay! i’ve been waiting for that question my princess! and i know that our Hero would answer Noah-sama!

  9. What if they returned to their previous lives as normal high school students, but in the other world they had lived for decades as married couples.

    1. I don’t think it would happen.
      I am sure that Makoto’s wish from Noah will be something in lines of “I want to leave this world with you by my side”.

      1. I don’t think it would happen.
        I am sure that Makoto’s wish from Noah will be something in lines of “I want to do new game+ now 😐 ”.

  10. Kuh, I’m feeling all sorts of emotion knowing that our MC doesn’t have any night life while Sakurai-kun bones Saki who was considered to be as the top 1 beauty from their school. Thanks for the chapter mate.

  11. Welp y’all know how I previously mentioned that I thought that maybe this arc was gonna be mostly about Makoto raising his affection meters with his harem? Well evidently that also includes Sakurai…<.<

    Anyways looks like it turned into a double date of Makoto and Furi alongside Sakurai and Saki. Ah and now they know Makoto's a virgin and how insane his training schedule is. Anyways Furi has made it clear at the end there that she no longer has feelings for Sakurai and that what she felt probably wasn't really love and more like affection since Sakurai was the only one who treated her nicely in a hostile country. Well anyways if Makoto wasn't so dense he'd realize that Furi is trying to sound him out by asking him who is the most important girl to him.

    Also they really need to kill off the pope. They said he's making a list of 'potential criminals' and not only does it include demihumans but also anybody part of a different religion than his. That would include literally every other Holy Goddesses' religions.

    I- uh… W-what? Ira is an idol? This world has idol culture? They are already introducing idol culture in the other Makoto's world and now this one has it too. Scary. Is Kanako's Magical Girl Idol plan from Death Mage spreading to even here?

    1. Yes Kanako is succeeding! Yeah go Kanako! now all we have to do is get some Death Metal Transforming sticks and we’re all set!
      Jokes aside there was someone else here who also read death mage? count me surprised
      But Darcia is a demi god idol already so…
      btw I love Kanako

    1. is there any big different between the LN and WN ? i mean i really like the Wn. Unlike seirei gensouki where the LN is way better than the WN i dont know if i really should read the LN too

  12. Although Makoto’s improving but he’s still dense when it comes to subtle things. Not to mention that airheaded side of him is the result of RPG and clear mind enhancing all these traits that he already had from the start (airheaded and dense). If Makoto keeps on failing to notice Furi’s feelings, then she might become more extreme in her approaches and once that happens he will not be able to escape. It was cute how Furi pulled his cheeks because he was ogling Saki too much. Also, Makoto did not lie Noah is the first girl he met and that accepted.

    That’s a flag Furi. Noah probably likes him more than just one of her believers lol.

    If it wasn’t clear already, Sakurai clearly has zero feelings for Furiae other than friendship. Sakurai is compassionate to everyone. Saki and Sakurai’s reaction to Makoto being a virgin and being a training junkie, I bet a number of questions in their head was answered by that revelation. Makoto probably thinks people think he’s normal, but everyone knows that he’s like the mad hero.

    AHHHH idols here too! I blame capitalism.

    To be honest, isn’t the Snake Churches increased attacks and lethality due to the Pope’s vengeful tactics. Isolating devilkin’s, forcing them to join Snake as their only means for survival. It’s a like self-fulfilling prophecy. Best solution would be to reintegrate them with society by giving them more economic options other than the slums or the Snake Church. I still want to see the Piggy Pope removed at some point.

    1. You mentioned quite a few important points here, I agree, the pope’s vengeful pettiness is what makes it easier for the snake church to gain follower’s, so in his quest to annihilate the Snake Church, he most likely just recruited more members for it. He needs to be removed and soon. Also I have a premonition of the Pig sending Alex after Furiae and Makoto lol.

  14. Chapter felt bigger than usual.
    Chat with Ryousuke, chat with Furi and at the end this bit with idol Ira? Very nice

    Anyway thanks for the chapter

  15. Say what? Ohhhh, this, this was unexpected, so, Esther is a idol facking been Ira-chan?… ok, with Tsuki Ga and now this is maybe to much unexpected idol content in a short amount of time….

    Well, in other note I’m really happy that Furiae have discovered that she currently don’t love Sakurai and instead she have feelings for Makoto, I want to know what was the decisive factor that make her realize, it was the pact with White Loli? Don’t know for sure. Also another thing, I’m happy that she defended Makoto saying that he is to busy training, yeah, it would be better if he lost his v, but at least until is certain that his blood would still be delicious to Whit Loli then that’s not a option.

    1. Thanks for the chapter!
      It was too nice to see the lovey dovey moments between Makoto and Sakurai: they are a really nice couple!
      And I was worried for a moment there, when Fuji-yan and Peter both came running. I thought the Pope did something to the beastkind of Simphonia… and I’m still worried he will. Such an idiot Pope!
      But the Ira/idol thing made me laugh so hard! Especially after the last few tsuki chapters… eheh
      I wonder what would happen if Fuji-yan used his log-skill on Makoto to find out he met Ira and that she has a totally different character… let’s hope he never will!
      Waiting for her show anyway, that’s gonna be wholesome!

  16. thanks for chap
    …………….what?
    me wondering seriously where their ‘god’s dignity’ ran off to.Wait doesn’t this mean we never see esther in her own personality at all?

    vs pope arc,we needed that quite a bit lol

    is tsuki infecting this one?just when they had idol stuff there its happening here too.

  17. Welp, I guess that’s one way to build a parasocial relationship with with / increase followers. Going to be awkward when she meets Makoto in person again later.

  18. Thanks for the chapter. Furiae finally cleared things up regarding her feelings for Sakurai. All that’s left now is a proper confession. Hopefully, that’s going to happen by the end of this arc because the author’s dragged it long enough. The Pope’s fanaticism is worrisome and guarantees a conflict between him and Makoto. He’s most likely going to send Alex against him and Furiae. Ira acting like an idol during her official descents was unexpected and hilarious. Can’t wait to see the conversation between Ira and Makoto after that.

  19. this is pretty surprising..
    i mean i already somewhat figured it out seeing The turn out of event but her character is totally flipped..

    and again train untill 2 a.m and wake earlier is he even a human sleeping less than 3 hours

  20. PFFFFFT!
    AHAHAHAAHAHAAAAHAAA-

    My gut hurts…Ira is an idol. She’s a fucking idol! No wonder the country is so exceptionally devoted to her. Idols form better cults than cults sometimes. This is rich, and the fact that Takki is gonna ask an idol for a favor cinches it.

    Haha! Whew…..what was I gonna talk about? Right. Lots of decent heart to hearts here. Furiae faked being drunk to get up close and personal. If it wasn’t before, her interest is official now.
    Poor Sakurai is under a lot of stress now. He’s even planning for his death, and not even doing it the right way.

  21. If Sa-san became pregnant when she’s a Lamia Queen like her mom, won’t she just birth thousands of eggs, also like her mom? Not to mention that her mom didn’t like talking about the dad, so I bet Sa-san is a species that eats their mate after being impregnated.

  22. Thanks for the chapter~!

    “In the past…I liked Ryosuke a bit.”
    So Furi now realized her feelings towards Sakurai and Makoto. Good, what’s left is the confession. Seeing how Makoto is always dense at a time like this, the one who confessed will probably be Furi first.

    “Hi~☆! It is everyone’s idol, Ira-chan☆! So many people have gathered to see me, thank you~☆! Have a whoooole lot of fun today, okay☆?”
    IDOL IRA DESCEND! I WANT TO HEAR HER SONG!!

  23. >It is true that Princess Noel who is deeply in love with Sakurai-kun wouldn’t miss something like that.

    Is she? Because apart from them being engaged, i didn’t notice much chemistry between them tbh.

  24. Thanks fo the chapter! ^^
    The moment they spoke about the tickets and how the scene was going I was like “No, really?” and then “Yep, seems like it.” when she spoke.
    Some peoples guessed in a previous chapter that Ira/Esther played an Idol role if I remember correctly (don’t remember which one though) so good job to them.
    I’m really impressed that some in the comments managed to predict that, I had no clues but was in a way prepared for this surprise because of that. ^^
    After the discussion about training I’m wondering what would be the reaction of the Sun Knights seeing Makoto’s training regime? x)
    As for Makoto’s relationship with Aya he just admitted that he would marry her, so that plus Sophia confirmation that’s pretty much Sophia, Aya and Lucy’s positions set in stone with him marrying them at one point. Good seeing progress on this front! 🙂

  25. “I hope there’s a next good encounter for you, Princess.” (Makoto)

    Damn, Makoto is such a bro. [Press F to Pay Respect]. <(TwT
    Also, finally got Furiae to admit it. *wink*wink*

  26. Makoto said that the Sun Knights’ training is rough? Really? Coming from a guy who said that you can train even while you sleep, it’s not convincing 😂

    And considering how some people treat their favorite idol like a literal goddess, this is really just a logical progression. A literal goddess is an idol.

    And we’re back to the cycle of revenge. I’m fairly sure this poop is one of the reason the Snake Church is so active now. Worsening oppression, worsening living conditions, and other things? Those make recruiting easier for terrorist organization, like the Snake Church. And of course he’s not done, because nobody in this world seem to be aware of the concept of an eye for an eye, much less the poop. It’s not encouragement to seek revenge, people don’t need to be encouraged to seek revenge. It’s a reminder to keep your revenge in check.

  27. Wut?

    Btw i would prefer if he didn’t choose a most important person. Though i agree Noah is the most important for him

  28. I’m sure Sakurai is straight, but everything he appears with Makoto I start to question his sexuality, he seems to be reallllyy gay for Makoto

    Idol Ira! She needs to appear more often
