WM – Chapter 204: Takatsuki Makoto participates in the show of the Goddess

“Waaaaah!!” 

“Ira-sama!!” 

“Look over here!!” 

Cheers that felt like roars were resonating in the place. 

The excited audience was jumping and the ground was shaking. 

When I look by my side, there’s Fuji-yan and Peter also shouting out loud. 

“Takki-dono, it is the Goddess-sama-desu zo! A raw Goddess-sama so closeby!” (Fuji)

“Wow! The descended Goddess-sama has…what a great time to be alive! Ain’t that right, Brother?!” (Peter)

“Y-Yeah…” (Makoto)

I am meeting her with much ease though.

So it is pretty rare to meet her, huh…

Ira-sama who has descended into Esther-san was singing and dancing in the middle of the stage. 

But…how to say it…it feels like deja vu.

Like I have seen this many times before. 

“Everyone~☆ Are you having fun~~~?” 

“Wooooooooooh!!” 

Ira-sama went ‘kyapi!’ and winks, and cheers were raised. 

Uwa…

A perfect smile. 

Lovely gestures. 

And a mini-skirt that doesn’t show her underwear no matter how much she moves around.

(Ah…the same as Noah-sama.) (Makoto)

(How rude! I am cuter!) (Noah)

She was listening.

(Ira-chan is really conscious of Noah.) (Eir)

Really, Eir-sama?

(Yup yup. She said she doesn’t like the fact that Noah is being called the number one beauty of the Divine Realm.) (Eir)

(Hmph! Well, my number one spot is unshakeable though!) (Noah)

I see..

On top of the dazzling stage that’s illuminated with lights and spotlights, Esther-san (Ira-sama) was singing a song that made no sense with a fluttery dress. 

“It is a bit deceptive…” (Makoto)

I muttered this in a low voice, and I was glared at from the side.

“Takki-dono…don’t tell me you plan on speaking ill of Ira-sama? When I was a merchant apprentice who had no time to sleep, I saw the descent of Ira-sama in the Commercial Country, and that has become the support of my heart. Don’t tell me you are going to be speaking ill of the perfect and lucky Ira-sama in front of me, are you?!” (Fuji)

“Brother…even if you are my Brother, I will have you learn to differentiate between what you can and can’t say… Ira-sama is the support of my heart. Even though I was the son of a mafia boss, I was weak in fighting, and because I am a beastkin, my brain isn’t that good either. Even when I am compared to my skilled brother, whenever I see the figure of Ira-sama, my heart is cleansed. To speak ill of that perfect and lucky Ira-sama…there’s no way you would do that, right, Brother?!” (Peter)

The two of them were speaking super fast. 

“…I-I am so happy to have met the p-perfect and lucky Ira-sama.” (Makoto)

““Umu!””

Scary.

So these are fanatics, huh.

I cheered as well in order to not be exposed that I am not a fan or believer.

The concert ended with quite the loud cheers. 

◇◇

Fuji-yan and Peter seem to have clicked quite well after watching the concert together. 

The two of them went to have a drink together. 

At this rate, Fuji-yan will most likely be called Brother pretty soon too. 

I was also invited and was with them for a while, but I refrained from a second round. 

I couldn’t keep up with their pace. 

I look up at the sky.

It isn’t even evening. 

Now then, what to do.

The place I came to on a whim was the residence of the Oracle Esther-san that I came to once before. 

The purpose is to consult about the vision of Sakurai-kun’s future. 

That was the plan, but the residence of the big nobles of the Commercial Country had a lot of guards, and they weren’t giving off the air that they would be letting me in easily. 

Also…it is right after the concert, so she must be tired. 

So it was impossible with this timing, huh. 

Is what I thought, but…

“Oh? Isn’t the one there the Rozes Hero Makoto?” 

“Janet-san?” (Makoto)

The captain of the pegasus division Janet-san called out to me in her white armor and helmet. 

“If I remember correctly, your hospitalization…was not necessary, right?” (Janet)

She giggled.

Janet-san has come several times to visit me in my hospital room.

She was amazed that I was always training my water magic every time she came. 

“So, what does Makoto, who didn’t accept my marriage proposal yet became the Guardian Knight of the Great Sage-sama, have to do here?” (Janet)

The tone of Janet-san was slightly thorny. 

 “Uhm, I came to meet Oracle Esther-san.” (Makoto)

“Hmm… You have an appointment, I suppose?” (Janet)

“I don’t.” (Makoto)

“Eh? No appointment?” (Janet)

“So it really is a no, huh.” (Makoto)

“Of course it is.” (Janet)

Janet-san sighed deeply. 

Looks like I lacked common sense. 

“Esther-sama has finished the descent of her Goddess just a few moments ago. She probably isn’t taking the visit of any—” (Janet)

“Is the Water Country’s Hero, Takatsuki Makoto-sama here?!” 

My name was called in a loud voice, cutting off the words of Janet-san.

Oh?

“Yes, I am here.” (Makoto)

I raised my hand to let them know.

“Esther-sama calls for you! Please enter the residence!” 

““…””

Janet-san and I look at each other. 

“You didn’t make any prior arrangements…right?” (Janet)

“Yeah, I came on a whim.” (Makoto)

“You were called by name…” (Janet)

“Indeed…” (Makoto)

“Now, go ahead! Together with your companion!” 

The butler-like person hurries me on.

“Shall we go, Janet-san?” (Makoto)

“M-Me too?!” (Janet)

“I would be uneasy on my own, you see…” (Makoto)

“…Geez, can’t be helped.” (Janet)

I myself understand that I was being unreasonable there, but Janet-san decided to go with me. 

The room we were guided to was a reception room used for meetings. 

Inside there’s Esther-san with a completely different look from the fluttery dress of before, she was sitting there in an elegant dress.

There were knights lined up around.

“Welcome, Hero of Rozes. It seems the eldest daughter of the Valentine Household is here too.” (Esther)

“Apologies for the sudden visit.” (Janet)

“Hello, Ir—Esther-sama.” (Makoto)

“…”

I almost said ‘Ira-sama’ there. 

Esther-san glared at me with eyes that said ‘oi!’.

After that, Esther-san ordered the guards to leave, and it ended up with only us three in the room.

“Now then, can you state the reason for your visit?” (Esther)

“You knew we would come here?” (Makoto)

“You…who do you think I am?” (Esther)

The Oracle of the Destiny Goddess that can see the future. 

I see, she could tell the fact that we would come here at the very least.

But Ira-sama misread the future at the Demon Lord battle though.

“…Forget the mistake of the Demon Lord battle.” (Esther)

“Yes.” (Makoto)

“Uhm…isn’t the flow of the conversation a bit weird?” (Janet)

Ira-sama was reading my mind on her own and continuing the conversation, so it certainly is turning into a weird conversation.

…Well, fine.

Let’s continue the conversation to divert that topic.

“Actually, it is about the Light Hero…Sakurai-kun.” (Makoto)

“Aah, so that’s what it is about.” (Ira)

As I said, don’t just read my mind and answer to that! The conversation is going to turn weird! 

Janet-san at my side has ?? on her face. 

“Is there any magic or magic tool that allows Sakurai-kun to ‘stop the future of him dying after the Great Demon Lord’s resurrection’ or ‘survive even if he were to die’?” (Makoto)

“None.” (Ira)

“I…see.” (Makoto)

Esther-san stated clearly to my question.

Looks like there’s no convenient sacred treasure or magic that brings back dead people to life lying around.

“The Sun Oracle…no, the Holy Maiden Noel can use the resurrection spell. We have no choice but to have her by his side in the Great Demon Lord battle.” (Ira)

“So that’s the only choice we have, huh…” (Makoto)

The method that Furiae-san said before.

Looks like even Ira-sama doesn’t have a perfect method to avoid it.

Haah, so usele—

“Evil God Apostle Makoto, you are going out of line there.” (Ira)

Oops, said too much there.

“Apologies.” (Makoto)

“Uhm…Esther-sama, Makoto, what have you two been talking for a while now…” (Janet)

Not good, Janet-san is confused. 

Esther-san (Ira-sama) must have thought the same, she sighed lightly. 

*Snap*

And snapped her fingers.

At that instant, the air of the room turned into a strange one, as if it had become viscous. 

“Janet-san?” (Makoto)

Janet-san at my side wasn’t even blinking as if she had stopped in time.

This is…

“An isolation barrier. It was a pain, so I created a space that only you and I can recognize.” (Ira)

She says it as if nothing, but that’s supposed to be Saint Rank Magic. 

“Now then, you have been saying whatever you want for a while now, Apostle of Noah, Makoto.” (Ira)

Her tone changed.

She glared at me and got closer. 

Uwah, she is angry. 

This is bad, I have to say something! 

“T-The concert just now was outstanding!” (Makoto)

The legs of Ira-sama stopped in place.

“You…went there?” (Ira)

“Yes, I participated together with a few friends.” (Makoto)

“I see… And so, how was it?” (Ira)

The anger in her eyes lowered. 

“Y-Your singing and dancing were the best! My two friends were crying even!” (Makoto)

It is true that Fuji-yan and Peter were crying! I’m not lying! 

“Oh my…how honest. I like honest ones.” (Ira)

The eyes of Esther-san (Ira-sama) glow a strange golden, and she placed a hand on my cheek.

Wait, this is the Charm Eyes! 

(Wa, wait a moment there! Don’t try Charming my Makoto!) (Noah)

“Tch, a Saint Rank Barrier can’t block the God Eye of Noah.” (Ira)

(You shouldn’t do that, Ira-chan. I had my eye on Mako-kun first.) (Eir)

“Even Eir-oneesama is there…” (Ira)

Noah-sama and Eir-sama cut into the conversation.

It has suddenly gotten noisy. 

“Returning to the topic, the death future can’t be avoided?” (Makoto)

“For now…yeah. I thought that the future would change once the Beast King Zagan was defeated, but it wasn’t the case. We really do have to do something about the Great Demon Lord that is coming back. We need to have the Sun Oracle Noel at his side all the time since she can use resurrection.” (Ira)

I see…

“But even if we are talking about using the resurrection spell of Princess Noel, she can’t participate in the war, right?” (Makoto)

“…The battle against the Great Demon Lord is a different matter. With the Great Demon Lord Iblis alone, we have to put all of our forces. All the Oracles will be made to participate as well.” (Ira)

“Eh?! Even Princess Sofia?” (Makoto)

Is that going to be okay…?

(That’s right. That’s why you have to protect Sofia-chan, okay?) (Eir)

“G-Got it.” (Makoto)

At any rate, when is the Great Demon Lord coming back?

It has been said that ‘it will be coming back’ ‘it will be coming back’, but it hasn’t at all.

“10 days.” (Ira)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

Esther-san (Ira-sama) said without delay.

10 days?! 

“That’s really soon…” (Makoto)

Finally, huh… Great Demon Lord Iblis.

Wonder what kinda guy it is.

“The next plan won’t go like last time. I have crushed the Snake Church after all.” (Ira)

Esther-san (Ira-sama) said slightly awkwardly. 

Right, with the Snake Church gone, the accuracy of the clairvoyance will increase.

Then…next time should be okay?

“Sorry for not meeting your expectations. Did you have any other business?” (Ira)

Esther-san (Ira-sama) asks with arms crossed.

Something else, huh… I think I did…

Right, there was still an important topic left! 

“It is about Furiae-sa…the Moon Oracle.” (Makoto)

“Hm? …Aah, you want to do something about the discrimination against the Moon Oracle and the devilkin?” (Ira)

Talking with her is fast. 

But Esther-san (Ira-sama) made a face as if it were a pain.

“Is that…a no?” (Makoto)

“Hmm, the Moon Oracle of 1,000 years ago made a mess of things before, so…what should I do, I wonder.” (Ira)

The Moon Oracle of 1,000 years ago, the Calamity Witch. 

The betrayer that’s said to have turned to the Great Demon Lord side.

But Furiae-san has nothing to do with that. 

(Ira-chan, shouldn’t it be about time to let the 1,000 years ago matter be water under the bridge?) (Eir)

Yay, Eir-sama is so kind! 

(Right right, while at it, you should let it be water under the bridge with my matter too, right? I want a whole lot of believers, you know~.) (Noah)

“(Not for Noah.)” 

(Eh?!) (Noah)

Eeh, why?

Even though I was thinking about requesting for Noah-sama’s matter while at it too! 

“The Oracle of Naia…the Calamity Witch was going wild on her own, so it is true that the Moon Oracle of this generation is unrelated. But the believer of Noah…was completely following the orders of Noah! My Hero of 1,000 years ago was killed by your Apostle!” (Ira)

“But the situation of 1,000 years ago is different from now.” (Makoto)

“But you listen to whatever Noah-sama tells you, right?” (Ira)

“Well, mostly.” (Makoto)

“Then, no. The believers of Naia are harmless even when left alone, but Noah…acts as if she is not interfering, but she completely brainwashes people, so Noah’s believers are dangerous. That’s why we must not allow Noah to increase her believer’s count.” (Ira)

Hmm…I see.

I thought I would be able to do more with more comrades.

“By the way, if you were allowed to increase the believers of Noah, who would you invite?” (Ira)

Ira-sama should already know my answer, yet she asked.

“For now, it would be Lucy, Sa-san, and Fuji-yan.” (Makoto)

“The Crimson Witch’s daughter, the Fire Country’s Designated Hero, and the number one merchant of the Water Country… No.” (Ira)

(That’s…yeah, we should not.) (Eir)

Eeh?! Even Eir-sama?! 

(Stingy!) (Noah)

The voice of Noah-sama resonated.

(But it is already feeling bad for the Moon Oracle and the devilkin, so I think it is about time to treat them equally.) (Eir)

“Really, Eir-sama?!” (Makoto)

Yay!

“But Althena-neesama has the final decision.” (Ira)

(Mako-kun, I will go ask Althena-neesan with Ira-chan.) (Eir)

“Thank you very much!” (Makoto)

That’s a relief. 

With this, Furiae-san and the devilkin of Laphroaig will be saved…I hope. 

“Then, is that all?” (Ira)

“Let’s see…” (Makoto)

Anything else…ah, right. 

“Your character completely changes in front of others, Ira-sama.” (Makoto)

“Wa?! Isn’t that fine?!” (Ira)

Ira-sama reacts excessively to my words.

(Ira-chan tries to make up a character too much.) (Eir)

(It is painful to watch, so stop it already.) (Noah)

“It is fine! Just leave me be, Eir-oneesama! Also, I don’t want to hear that from you, Noah!” (Ira)

(I am more of a calm and composed Goddess, you know?) (Noah)

Really?

Anyways, I had a more dignified image of Ira-sama. 

(Hey hey, Mako-kun, look at your Soul Book.) (Eir)

“Eir-sama? My Soul Book?” (Makoto)

(The Skill descriptions are written by Ira-chan.) (Eir)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

I hurriedly check the Skill part of the Soul Book. 

Water Magic User, Elementary: A skill that allows you to use elementary rank water magic. The mana you have is low, so it can’t be helped that it is elementary! Train hard and do your best! 

“This…was written by Ira-sama?” (Makoto)

“That’s right… Got a problem? It is stated in the Soul Book too, right?” (Ira)

True…

It says ‘written by the Destiny Goddess Ira’ in small letters…

I see, so it is common knowledge that the personality of the Destiny Goddess is like that, huh.

Even though the Esther-san in front of me looks so refined…

“It is fine already, right? I will undo the barrier now.” (Ira)

Ira-sama had her arms crossed and went ‘hmph’ as she looked away. 

“Yes, thank you very much for telling me a lot of things, Ira-sama.” (Makoto)

I kneeled and gave my thanks.

After saying ‘you should show that level of humility all the time’, she snapped her fingers.

“E-Eh? Just what in the world did I…” (Janet)

Janet-san was blinking a whole lot. 

“I have finished talking to Esther-san. Let’s leave, Janet-san.” (Makoto)

“Eh? What? …When?” (Janet)

I pull the hand of the confused Janet-san.

I did something bad despite me bringing her along.

“Well then, Esther-san, please send my regards to Ira-sama. Thank you very much.” (Makoto)

I said it already, but I said it again.

“There’s no knowing what will happen with the matter of the Moon Oracle, you know? Well…if you are troubled by anything, rely on me.” (Ira)

“Excuse the intrusion, Esther-sama.” (Janet)

“I will come again, okay?” (Makoto)

Esther-san (Ira-sama) waved her hand.

Janet-san and I left the room.

◇◇

“Uhm…Takatsuki Makoto, haven’t you gotten really close to Esther-sama?” (Janet)

“Really? It has been like this since before, you know.” (Makoto)

“I don’t think that’s the case though… There’s the Great Sage-sama, Noel-neesama, General Tariska, the Crimson Witch-sama… You are unexpectedly skilled at bringing in influential people to your side.” (Janet)

Is she praising me here?

“It seems like you only think of me as a convenient woman though.” (Janet)

She glared at me.

Ah, she is mad.

“L-Let’s go get something to eat! Eat!” (Makoto)

I changed the topic.

“Muuh… Well, I don’t mind.” (Janet)

“I know a good place! Over here.” (Makoto)

I say, but it is the place Fuji-yan manages.

When in trouble, come to Fuji-yan! 

Ah, but he is most likely still drinking with Peter. 

Oh well, that’s okay.

The food there is tasty. 

◇◇

“Welcome, Takatsuki-sama. Thanks for your continued patronage…wait, isn’t that Janet Valentine-sama?!” (Nina)

Nina-san’s ears went ‘pikon’ as she made a surprised expression and stood in place.

Achaa, now that she mentions it, Janet-san is a high class lady.

I should have told them beforehand. 

“You don’t need to mind me.” (Janet)

“A-Alright… Apologies for the small establishment… Go ahead and enjoy your time.” (Nina)

Nina-san made a short greeting and skited her way to my side.

“Takatsuki-sama! Why is it that every single person you bring is royalty or a high noble?! Moreover, without a reservation!” (Nina)

She admonished me. 

“Sorry… By the way, why are you always the one watching over the store? You don’t have to be the one, right?” (Makoto)

Nina-san is the wife of Fuji-yan, so there shouldn’t be a need for her to push herself to work.

“Rather than playing noble, I prefer moving my body. Also…the girl you bring changes every time you come, Takatsuki-sama. I will keep it a secret from Sasaki-sama and Lucy-sama, okay?” (Nina)

She winked at me while amazed.

No, that’s not how it is…

“Is something the matter?” (Janet)

“No no, it is nothing, Janet-sama!” (Nina)

“What do you wanna order, Janet-san?” (Makoto)

Nina-san and I hurriedly turn to Janet-san.

We ordered some light drinks before the meal, and ordered a few of the recommended dishes. 

Fuji-yan’s place is styled as a commoner’s eatery in the noble district.

Janet-san must feel it novel, she was looking around restlessly. 

“This is a rare place to see in the 3rd District where nobles live. It is lighthearted and easy to enter.” (Janet)

“Right? My friend is managing it.” (Makoto)

“So it is a place you frequent. I will keep it in mind, okay?” (Janet)

Janet-san was smiling and seemed to be in a good mood. 

Maybe I managed to repay her for unreasonably bringing her to Esther-san’s residence with me?

“What places do you normally eat at, Janet-san?” (Makoto)

“I move often with my unit, you see. I haven’t gone to my house lately because it is so stiffening… They don’t shut up about marriage and parents *mumble*.” (Janet)

“Eh? I couldn’t pick up the last part.” (Makoto)

“It is okay to not have heard it!” (Janet)

“I see…” (Makoto)

After chatting for a while and enjoying our meal…

“Heya, is it open?” 

“Welcome~, feel free to take any seat!” 

A customer with a loud voice entered. 

Glittery armor and gaudy blonde hair. 

What a flashy knight-san…is what I was thinking faintly in my mind as the glittery knight approached our table with sharp eyes. 

(…Hm?) (Makoto)

“Oi, Rozes Hero, why are you together with my little sister?” 

“N-Nii-sama?!” (Janet)

“Geh.” (Makoto)

When I look properly…the one who was standing there was the captain of the Northern Sky Knights and Lightning Hero, Geralt-san.

  1. Nice one Makoto. I know Mary and (I think) Janet get with Makoto in the LN, but is Janet going to join the Harem?

    1. In the LN, Mary did join the harem since she kissed Makoto. Romance scenes are better written and earlier in the LN, so there is a strong possibility that Janet does join eventually (she’s kind of a love rival with Sophia in romcom situations, like Aya & Lucy). Janet’s LN illustrations with Makoto got her a quite a good number of shippers too.

      1. Mary is the receptionist from Makkaren that show a lot of skinship with Makoto. Everyone else suspects that they have something going on. In the WN, she’s looking after Makoto’s mansion.

    2. Whoa, man. For a moment there is was “who the hell is Mary?”

      I liked her quite a lot for the onee-san spot in the harem, but it’s been at least a hundred chapters since she last appeared.

  2. Thanks for the chapter~

    Now it’s about time for the Loli Goddess headpat.
    And oh, another date with Janet-san? I hope it goes well. Kinda getting bored with loli-like female heroines lel. Also i wonder when will Makoto do the next sync with one of his party member. Been a while since the last time he did it with Sofia too.

    1. How can you be getting bored of loli like heroines when they make up like 5% of all light novels combined? Are you reading the wrong things on purpose?

    1. Pretty happy to see our fanbase dominating the competition for now. If only there was Rule Breaker…ha, but looking forward to the LN version!

    1. Thank you for your work 🙂

      Hmm… Makoto + Janet ship? Why not.
      But still, Makoto and Furiae ship is the best. And it’s sailing really nice for a while.

    1. No not only the ground but into the negatives. Like Misumi they both have excepttionally Bad luck. Which Can turn into opportunities.

  3. Thanks for the chapter.
    Tsuki Makoto got abnormal luck to meet mythical being, while WM Makoto got abnormal luck to meet important people…

    1. It is like Naegi Makoto in Daganronpa and Nagito Komaeda(another Makoto and idols again ! Also, Nagito Komaeda is an anagram of Naegi Makoto). They both have abnormal luck. Are all Makoto supposed to have supernatural luck ?

  4. Makoto, what are you saying to Ira ? Are you trying to increase your affection points with her ? You already have 3 wifes, and there is the number of potential wifes to take into account. Also, Makoto’s clumsy side is similar to Ira’s. I think that they should be able to get along.

    “Then, no. The believers of Naia are harmless even when left alone, but Noah…acts as if she is not interfering, but she completely brainwashes people, so Noah’s believers are dangerous. That’s why we must not allow Noah to increase her believer’s count.” (Ira)
    I think Makoto should listen to what Ira is saying and be more vigilant when interacting with Noah. Even if Noah’s Charm is useless against him, it doesn’t mean that she can’t manipulate him.

    Janet, a blond knight woman who looks like a valkyrie. She is 169cm. If the author wants to put her in the harem, he should creates more scenes with her.
    https://img1.mitemin.net/ap/gg/cqh1h0avkj0tflid95todfa971va_4uo_f1_p3_17j9.jpg

      1. Yeah I imagined all of the female characters to look a lot older but the illustration always shows lolis lol.

      2. Not a fan of the style for this reason. They’re all too cutesy. Tell me to ballpark an age and I would go 14-16, and I’m pretty sure they more around 20.

        Sa-san technically younger, I guess.

    1. I think makoto let her manipulate him so that he can challenge the impossible and try every cool magic or because noah is just cute to point the follow her orders (fell in love i think).

    2. Wasn’t Makoto already know and always suspecting Noah since early chapter? It’s just that he always go along with it willingly

    3. I read Ira’s warning was about increasing the number of followers, not Noah influencing Makato.
      She pointed out any *new* followers would be completed dominated by Noah’s charm.

    1. “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. (Murphy’s law)
      Poor Ira. Her plans on the long term will always fail. She lacks the ability to deal with unforeseen circumstances unlike Makoto. She is a Ponkotsu Goddess after all. If Makoto is working with her, she will greatly increase her success rate.

  5. Makoto: Sh*t… caught in the act by Nii-san. Time to split!!!

    Well, jokes aside, this chapter was more filler-like but it was setting up for the final confrontation between the human part vs Daimaou within TEN DAYS. wth Ira-chan, a lil’ warning would suffice, no?

    And poor Esther, her screentime got replaced with Ira-chan AGAIN. When will she ever speak a line here? I’m curious about her personality.

    Also previously: really, really stoked about Fu-chan’s development. Seems like she matured and is now firmly in the Makoto camp. My best ship Mako X Fu-chan, followed by Mako X Noah, Mako X GS, Aya X Lucy.

    1. They did say that Esther was a very mature and polite person. In other words, she has a good personality. Also, is it me or almost all the Oracles have opposite personality compared to their respective Goddess ?
      Sofia(pure, kind) & Eir(impure, black-hearted)
      Dahlia(scheming) & Sol(hates schemes and cheating),
      Esther(good personality, polite, mature) &Ira(bad personality)
      Noel(progressist, open minded) & Althena (doesn’t listen, hard-headed, strict on rules)

  6. Thank you for the chapter 😀
    Bwahahahhahahaha, so shes just acting, Ira is hilarious :’D
    Geralt, come sit down, well all get drunk and eat till we burst!

  7. Ok, i tried, I really did! But it’s impossible for me to comment BEFORE reading…
    So, thanks for the chapter!
    And wyf? 10 days? Didn’t they said 10 years not too long-time ago? Why nobody seems stressed about it?
    Well, I really liked Ira-sama show and the reactions of her believers… true fans really are creepy!
    And nice to see Gerald coming back, ehehehe

    1. At the start of the series it was said that he would revive within 10 years. That’s the only time I remember a 10 years date come from. Around the fire nation arc it said within a year.

    2. Nobody knows the great demon lord will soon revive, only the most important people know about it if I remember correctly.
      It’s makatos reaction, so yeah…

  8. Lets see the Harem List.
    Human Harem List:
    1. Lucy
    2. Sasaki Aya
    3. Princess Sofia
    4. Furiae
    5. Great White Sage
    6. Janet Valentine
    Goddess Harem List
    1. Noah
    2. Eir
    3. Ira?

    Is this all? Oh wait
    Male side:
    1. Sakurai Ryousuke
    2. Geralt Valentine

    I think this is all for now.

  9. >i think we really need to take note about “completely brainwash” statement against noah from ira-chan here.
    if ever makoto unseal her in the prison, then we can expect her divine power will go haywire there and affect so many people. without the control momentarily, she may spout something nonsense and it will affect the people who affected by her divine power thus brainwashed…

    also, being brainwashed by her, since she always says she was the number 1 beauty, brainwashing seems to be a norm from here so that she still place as the top beauty on divine realm, and take note for the goddess, they dont mind it that much about the adverse or future effect on the victim of theirs, because they were god and goddesses . if you remember, they already talk about it about wanting to have soul and soon convert it as the hero of the country after their placement again on the mortal realm..

    for noah, i think it would be a big effect on the whole world on her release in her prison, and to gain missing divine power, she may brainwashed immediately people to be her believer. for the goddesses, they think they were messing with them playfully, though mortal realms are really the one being affected that much

    > what janet san mumbling about her parents and her marriage talk, its continuation might be about bringing an heir to the family. so whenever janet comes to heir home, she will always hear to her parents that she needs to get married and bring about many grandchild already and she thinks always about makoto as the father of all her children…

    1. “completely brainwash” in the machine translation is translated as inciting

      so maybe rather than supernatural power of complete brainwashing, it’s more like subtle suggestion along with normal, daily Noah charm (not charm magic)

      1. Based on what we know, if Noah speaks or is seen, anyone who sees or hears her will go completely insane while obeying her will, similar to the apostle from 1000 years prior. Noah even expected Makoto to have that same result, but she was happy that he was unaffected, though still surprised.

        Subtle doesn’t seem correct to describe it, though inciting can be correct as the brainwashed are incited to follow Noah’s will.

        Kind of like a super version of charm. I think divine presence damages souls, though? wasn’t that mentioned by Eir before?

  10. Makoto don’t just use a date just to get away from trouble! Just what do you think a date is?! That’s the mindset of an airheaded and dense gigolo or host bar males. Nina is right, he does bring a different woman each time. Furiae even said that he’s either training or meeting a woman lol.

    He even learned to handle Ira… its like giving your younger sibling an unplugged remote controller when they say that they want to play too. Does Ira want the litter sister position that much? Makoto almost let the truth slip and called her a useless goddess.

    I bet the pope won’t stay silent either way knowing his longstanding grudges. The existence of the pope really makes me doubt the abilities of Sun Goddess Althena who is known to be strict and hard-headed for keeping such as guy in power for so long. I mean he’s probably abusing the Nuns there from a few arcs back despite that church being the most strictest when it comes to maidenhood.

  11. Ok, so isn’t that Esther is a idol, is Ira-chan properly controling Esther huh, well if that’s the case then isn’t false advertising I guess. When I see again the description of his water magic and noticed that Ira-chan encouraged Makoto to train I thought that maybe because of that Makoto would be considered to have faith to Ira-chan.

    Would be nice if they explain thoroughly the influence that Ira-chan have in the system to be able to write the skill description.

    1. You have it mixed up I think lol. Basically, whenever Ira descends “officially” she has an idol performance to bring morale up. Her image is that of an kind hearted and charming goddess.

      Makoto thinks she’s useless goddess with her predictions always being off and everyone else besides the goddesses and himself do not know that Ira is actually Esther in the descended state without divinity. All the elementary or low level skills probably have that “encouragement” written from Ira, hence her popularity from bringing hope. Ira did not give the skills to Makoto, she only writes about them.

      1. I know that is when she “officially” decend that is held a idol performance, what I was saying refered to my comment in the previous chapter in which I thought that Esther was facking been Ira-chan when she acted like a idol. With this was cleared that missundertanding so that’s why I say that isn’t false advertising, because is really Ira-chan.

        Could be that really all the elementary skills have the encouragement, but because Makoto is a otherworldly and also have the other two unique skill (I’m not sure if Clear Mind is really a unique skill but at least from what Noah say is a pretty rare one because of his high level) is also pretty possible that she added that specially to his skill. And I know she don’t give the skill to Makoto, but the fact that she write the skill description of the skill mean that she have a certain amount of authority to interfere with the system, at least if is only in the level of write the skill, more been the case that she write the description of ALL the skills (at least from what we know).

      2. I would say no that Esther is able to freely interfere with the system. It is shared with the demons, although they may use something else than a soulbook. The gods do have agreements with the opposing demon gods, so there are rules enforced. Noah said according to the gods, the demons vs humans fight is like a sports event.

        If I recall correctly, the soulbook is an item that once used you can access anytime later by the user. The soulbook does not display everything truthfully either, such as the limit of skills being 99, omitting descriptions for others. The goddesses did hide the existence of spirits and spirit magic among humans. Clear mind is a very rare skill, RPG is the unique one, and both are very compatible with each other.

  13. Oh shit….. Geralt is here to cockblock them….
    I feel like this might become the “Nii-sama I hate you” scene……
    Well anyways, thanks for the chapter.
    .
    .
    .
    Wait am I the first?

  14. now that i think about it. there is lamia queen, Commander of Fire Country, All of Elf Town too, Light Hero, Light Priestess His Connection is actually overkill.

    I wonder How Nina will react if He bring Goddess next time(even in Descend Form)

  15. Makoto should have known better than to say anything negative about idols in front of Fuji-yan who is a bigger otaku than him. Anyways I didn’t expect for Peter to also be a fan of idols. Looks like Fuji-yan will be getting closer to the Castor Family than he already is if both are gonna bond over their love of idols.

    Now it’s time for Makoto to speak with Ira. So there isn’t a magic treasure or normal magic that can be used to protect Sakurai from his future other than having Noel being with him to cast her resurrection spell. Also apparently Iblis will resurrect in 10 days. Shouldn’t people be told so they can start preparing? Anyways so at least in this discussion Makoto tried to improve the devilkins treatment. On another note I guess Ira is gonna join Makoto’s harem as another goddess. There’s already Noah and Eir. I wonder if any more will be added? Will Makoto be the Second Coming of Jupiter? Or will he end up NTR-ing Jupiter with his airheaded gigolo-nes?

    And now onto having a date with Janet. Sure he apparently rejected her marriage proposal but that ain’t stopping him from inviting her to dinner. Besides the rest of his harem seem to have already accepted her so his rejection is rejected. Geh it’s Geralt. Is he gonna be all siscon and try to forbid Janet from starting a relationship with Makoto only for Janet to hit him with an “I hate Onii-chan!!”?

  16. Thanks for the chapter.
    Though it is true that Makato listens to what mostly Noah tell him to do. Their have been times when he completely went against what she said to save his friends. While he does look at her highly because she basically saved his life, in my opinion he is basically not a fanatic not even close, looking at Fuji yan, the snake church and such. But I suppose the goddess don’t want Noah to gain many followers because while Makato us alright, the same couldn’t be seen for others

  17. Thanks for the chapter. I wonder if we can count Ira among Makoto’s captured heroines. Too soon to tell I guess. And Gerald caught his sister with Makoto right in the middle of their date. Looks like another bloodbath is coming.

  18. I really love how author writes this whole novel.

    But. There’s something weird. After around 10 minutes of thinking I noticed that the way this chapter is written doesn’t put any accent on the fact that the final battle is just 10 days away.
    And instead it leads us to think only about this encounter with nii-san.
    While totally ignoring the fact that at this rate Sakurai will die.

    It’s like MC is fcked up in the head, and so are You.

  19. Geh. A nuisance has arrived. Do you think we can ignore him?

    Heh…more Ira bullying. This is fun. She really got smug and full of herself before the battle, so now it’s time to pay the piper. And maybe get Furiae off the hook. Though the pope probably won’t like that… good. We can use this chance to shut him down.

    Smh Takatsuki. After all this time with your bro helping you out, you don’t even use the favor Ira owes you to arrange a private meet and greet with Fuji-yan?

  20. Makoto just badmouth Ira, in her debut.. 😂 Evn noah.

    Ira said that all noahs believer but Ira believer the dangerous one for me like for example fugiyan and peter they occults addicted to her and well beat them who had ill intentions, even if they close friends.

    Makoto is getting relax and honest on his mind at getting a conversation to a goddess ehh hmmm. Makoto just say to goddess she useless 😂
    It let think that in the future he would ild becona god and ascend.

    Damn i fell i asleep when i tapping my refresh button. Im late again.
    Thanks for the chapter

  21. Thanks for the chapter~!

    Janet needs more screentime, really. Is her role more prominent in the LN?

    Makoto remarks for Ira, lul. She’s ponkotsu goddess after all. Oh, Makoto wasn’t that hated by Ira, and she even tries to recruit him the first time they met, and charmed him in this one. Will she join Makoto ranks of harem?

    Lastly, caught by scary onii-chan. Just how will Makoto handle this one?

  22. Thanks for the chapter! ^^
    Should we say it is the final count down or will he die before the Great Demon Lord resurrection because of his love affairs? x)
    And if he succeed in helping the devilkins is fanbase will grow exponensialy while his opponents will grow even more virulent.
    It could be funny that because he was the one asking for their forgiveness he end up with the gods saying “The devilkins will be forgiven if they accept Takatsuki Makoto as their rightfull king!” with the subtitle being only for Makoto to see “You wanted their forgiveness? Take care of the reconstruction by yourself if you care so much about them!”. XD

  23. So Janet has been decisively refused already…, or has she? When she said Makoto has refused the marriage, is this talking about what has been shown (where Makoto seem to be less refusing and more waffling) or is it something off screen?

    At least Makoto is aware that being able to communicate without talking seems weird…, and intimate, but he’s probably unaware of that bit. Most people aren’t exactly aware of the entire mind-reading stuff. Or Makoto’s mental sass, which elicit response.

    As for Janet saying that Makoto seem to see her as just a convenient woman…, it probably does give that impression since Makoto does suck at communicating his intentions. It’s more like he doesn’t think that of her specifically, just that she’s the only one available at the time and willing to go along with his shenanigans.
