WM – Chapter 221: The oracle of the Sun Goddess

Sponsored Chapter


The one who appeared from the shining magic circle was the Sun Goddess, Althena-sama.

She gives a sweeping look at everyone from high up.

She doesn’t seem to be in a good mood…

It is not like the lukewarm descent of Ira-sama. It is a pressure that made it hard to breathe.

Sweat comes flowing out like a waterfall just from being exposed to the gaze of Althena-sama.

No one could speak.

Silence ruled over the Great Church.

“The situation…is dire…” (Althena)

Althena-sama says silently.

“The resurrected Great Demon Lord must have judged that they can’t defeat you with their current strength… In order to overturn that, they utilized a forbidden technique.” (Althena)

“Forbidden technique…? What is it?” (Noel)

Princess Noel represents everyone by asking this question.

History Rewrite… It is a destiny spell that interferes with the past.” (Althena)

I could hear gulping.

Rewriting of history…?

Just what in the world…

“The Great Demon Lord Iblis is trying to kill the Hero Abel of 1,000 years ago with their spell. If that happens, all history will go haywire… No matter how many times you defeat the present Great Demon Lord, it would be pointless…” (Ira)

Ira-sama continued with a dark expression.

Silence covered the place until everyone could understand the meaning of that.

Then, a scream rang in the church.

“T-There’s no way something like that is possible!”

“That’s on the level of a god!” 

“It is impossible!” 

I have heard about it.

Magic that can affect time.

Many a mage would desire it, and no one has been able to achieve it even now -the realm of gods.

Unlimited youth, time stop, time travel…

There’s no mage who has been able to achieve it. 

People would die, time wouldn’t stop, and history can’t be changed…that should be how it is.

“I don’t know what method they used. There’s a high chance that Devils have lent them their help…but there’s no leeway to investigate that. The change of history is already proceeding… The memories regarding Hero Abel are being lost.” (Althena)

The people in the church gulped at the shock.

“Sofia, Lucy?” (Makoto)

I tried asking.

“No way…why was I about to forget about the Savior-sama…?” (Sofia)

“M-Makoto…I can’t remember the story of the Savior Abel clearly… Even though I read about it from picture books, was told about it countless times, and had memorized it all…” (Lucy)

Princess Sofia and Lucy had pale faces.

History…is really being rewritten?

“Althena-sama, please guide us. How should we overturn this situation…?” (Noel)

Princess Noel asks with composure.

But her voice was trembling slightly. 

“Althena-sama, can’t we use the same spell? If the enemy has begun to interfere, by us using the same spell…” (Sakurai)

“That would be impossible…Light Hero-kun.” 

The one who denied the thought of Sakurai-kun is the Great Sage-sama.

She said she would go to the Earth Country, but it seems like she returned already.

“Why, Great Sage-sama?” (Sakurai)

“There’s no user of it in the humans. I can use destiny magic to a certain extent, but…the most I can do is look a bit into the future. Using a spell that can interfere with the past of 1,000 years ago is totally impossible…” 

“…”

There’s no mage who surpasses the Great Sage-sama in this continent.

If the Great Sage-sama says she can’t, there’s no one who can.

“The Great Demon Lord must have used several thousands…no, tens of thousands of people as sacrifices to the Snake God Typhon… It isn’t a spell that you people can use.” (Ira)

Ira-sama’s words made everyone despair.

Ten of thousands of sacrifices…

A forbidden technique.

“Then…is there any other spell?” (Noel)

The voice of Princess Noel steadily got lower.

The Sun Goddess doesn’t answer.

The Destiny Goddess is also silent.

Hey…please say something.

“There’s nothing you people can do.” (Ira)

Ira-sama said.

I could hear people saying ‘No way…’.

“This matter…is my fault as the Destiny Goddess for not seeing through the change of history… That’s why I will lend a hand.” (Ira)

Ira-sama said silently.

Everyone held their breath as they waited for the words of Ira-sama.

“Normally, it is prohibited for Gods to directly get involved with the mortal realm. It is established in the regulations of the Gods… In the case when the Divine Realm Regulations are broken, the other Gods will begin to get involved too, and in the end a war between Gods will happen, and the world…will perish.” (Althena)

“But I -the Destiny Goddess- will be breaking that… The punishment for breaking the Divine Realm Regulations is that I will be prohibited from descending to the mortal realm. I will also be unable to grant Skills to the Heroes and Oracles… Camelon will lose their faith, and will decline… I am sorry for my country, but it should be better than losing to the demon lord army…” (Ira)

Hearing this, the nobles of Camelon and the warriors raised voices in dejection.

However, there were no people who were objecting to the Destiny Goddess herself.

“Ira-sama, how will you be lending your help exactly…?” (Noel)

Princess Noel hesitantly asks.

Ira-sama looked around the church and said as if she had resolved herself.

“With the miracle of a God, I will send you 1,000 years into the past. That person will help out Hero Abel so they don’t die.” (Ira)

Voices were raised with an ‘oooh!’.

Something like that can be done?

“I will go.” (Geralt)

The one who immediately offered to do it was the Lightning Hero, Geralt-san.

So cool.

“Wait, I will go too!” (Olga)

The one who raised her voice after was the Scorching Hero, Olga-san.

These people have so much resolve!

“I appreciate your bravery. However, only one person can be sent…” (Ira)

Ira-sama said apologetically.

“Then there’s no other than me. There’s no problems, right?” (Geralt)

Geralt-san said and stepped further forward as he said to Ira-sama.

He is the highest Hero after the Sakurai-kun, and has the same ability as the Savior Abel, the Lightning Hero Skill.

Judging from the face of the people around, they seem to agree to this.

I think there’s no problem with this selection.

“No…Lightning Hero Geralt, you are a well known Hero that has had his name reverberate in the West Continent for a long time. With just that alone, you will be noticed by the Devils immediately if you were to be sent 1,000 years ago. That’s the same for the Scorching Hero Olga. We will be taking this incident as a mistake from the Destiny Goddess. That’s why we are not going to be sending a person that’s famous in this world, and it would be best for it to be someone who was nameless until recently…” (Althena)

Ira-sama’s mistake, huh… That does sound like something that could happen…

Ah, Ira-sama glared at me.

Even so, if Geralt-san and Olga-san won’t work, then who should it be?

“Someone who hadn’t made a name for themselves until recently… The otherworlders?” 

Someone muttered.

“A-Are you talking about Ryosuke-san?!” (Noel)

The one who shouted was Princess Noel who had been calm until now.

It is true that if we are talking about sending only one person that’s an otherworlder and is strong, it would be Sakurai-kun…

“Noel, the Light Hero has the role of defeating the present Great Demon Lord. We can’t send him 1,000 years to the past.” (Althena)

Althena-sama denies it immediately.

“I-Is that so…” (Sakurai)

Sakurai-kun must have thought that he would be sent too, he let out a dumbfounded voice.

“Ira-sama, there’s powerful warriors in the Sun Country and the Fire Country that are Orihalcum Rank and are comparable to Heroes. Should we call them?” (Yuwein)

General Yuwein reports.

It is true that there’s no need for it to be a Hero.

“No, that won’t work… We should try our utmost to not have the Devils notice that the Destiny Goddess is sending a warrior to the past…” (Ira)

But Ira-sama shook her head to the sides with a dark expression.

“I will tell you the conditions for the warrior that is suitable to be sent 1,000 years in the past.” (Ira)

Ira-sama says with a clear tone.

“If we were to send someone who has powerful Skills like Heroes and Oracles, the Devils will notice it. That would be the same for the Skills that you people call Saint Rank and Monarch Rank.” (Ira)

“That means the Great Sage-sama and Mother aren’t qualified either…” (Lucy)

Lucy mutters.

It is true that Rosalie-san would be reliable, but she doesn’t fit the requirements of Ira-sama.

“Then, how strong in specific would it be okay…?” (Tariska)

General Tariska asks what everyone was interested about.

“If we were to put it in the standards of humans…someone who has Skills that are lower than Mid Rank. That is the requirement to be sent 1,000 to the past.” (Ira)

“…That’s quite the harsh requirement.” (Yuwein)

General Yuwein groans.

That’s true. It is way too harsh of a requirement no matter how you cut it.

“But there’s no point in lamenting that. Let’s recruit a warrior that can go 1,000 into the past. Someone who has Mid Rank Skills or below that can be of help to Abel-sama…” (Noel)

Princess Noel speaks positively in this place that had been surrounded by a gloomy atmosphere.

But…

“That’s not necessary.” (Althena)

Althena-sama says bluntly.

“We had the Destiny Goddess confirm all the futures.” (Althena)

“I-Is that so…?” (Noel)

Voices of surprise were raised.

Seriously…?

You saw all the futures of the whole continent…Ira-sama?

No wonder she had a tired face.

“Sadly to say…no matter who of the Goddess believers in the whole continent we send to 1,000 years into the past, they couldn’t change the past of the Hero Abel dying.” (Althena)

Althena-sama speaks out the cruel reality.

“N-No way…” (Noel)

Princess Noel mutters in despair.

No, it wasn’t just Princess Noel, but everyone in the Grand Church was losing the light in their eyes.

The ruler of the world and Sun Goddess has basically confirmed the death of Hero Abel. 

‘…We are done for’, I could even hear those kinds of words.

“But there’s still a possibility.” (Althena)

The people who had their heads hanging down raised their heads at the words of Althena-sama.

And then, as if they were pleading, they waited for the next words of the Goddess.

Althena-sama’s gaze drifted about for a while as if she were hesitating, and then slowly turned here.

Her sharp gaze was directed over here.

The Sun Goddess speaks.

That voice sounded as if this were someone else’s business.

Takatsuki Makoto, I have a request.” (Althena)

I have a bad feeling.

I don’t want to listen to the next words of Althena-sama.

Silence covered the Great Church, and everyone’s gazes were directed at me.

“You are the only one…” (Althena)

As if hesitating…

Althena-sama continued her words in a tone that was even more apologetic than the time she was in the Deep Sea Temple together with Noah-sama.

“You who has a future even the Destiny Goddess Ira can’t see…has the possibility of changing the future of the Hero Abel losing his life.” (Althena)

Princess Sofia gulped at my side.

Oi oi, give me a break…

“Takatsuki Makoto…can you please go 1,000 years into the past, save Hero Abel…and save the world?” (Althena)

The voice of Althena-sama sounded like the judge of hell.

    1. I already predicted that Ira would cause trouble again but didn’t think it would be this big. I’ve been spoiled by a few idiots in the comments section so I knew this was coming but still. The impact is way too big.

      Is this gonna be an arc how Makoto is actually Abel? Since the Great Demon King is a mage, Makoto might have a 1v1 fight with him later on. Can’t wait to see how the author pulls this off.

    2. Just noticed this now but Althena and Ira are speaking as if Abel did exist so I doubt Makoto is Abel. Then why did Abel leave Anna? Based on the actions of Abel, being cautious and leaving his party to kill the Great Demon King, it sounds exactly like Makoto. Plus, Abel did leave Anna and the stories didn’t exactly say the reason why. Even Great Sage avoids the topic. It might be that after the fight, Makoto has to return to the present so he left. If it turned out Abel is Anna and Makoto took the place of Abel in the stories, I’ll lose my mind.

      Dammit my head is filled with so many speculations that I feel like I’m spoiling myself.

      1. Abel said before he disappeared ‘there’s someone waiting for me’.
        We also have another mystery. What happened to the Calamity Witch ? It is said that she suddenly disappeared.

        1. Makoto has the transformation skill right? What if something happened to Abel and Makoto took his place so no one would know that Abel was already gone. Though I’m not sure how probable this would be since Makoto fights with water spirits not light and Abel is know as the light hero of 1000 years ago

      2. Wouldn’t the whole plan fail then? Since him going to the past rests entirely that he saves and help Abel defeat the Great Demon King. I’m almost certain that nothing will happen to Abel otherwise the present is doomed. I’m just wondering why Anna who is supposed to be Abel’s childhood friend, loves Makoto or the “Abel” who left.

      3. Any chance that abel dead? And they make up that I have someone waiting for me thing to not discouraged people. Btw if makoto really go 1000 years ago then I think that coffin is probably makoto then (he use water magic to freeze himself to travel 1000 ago in the future and ask great sage to take care of him (she’s there 1000 years ago until now) ).

      4. Abel is supposed to be a Lightning Hero though, they had a full set of elemental heroes back then, but Noah’s Hero killed most of them. So far we only know of a couple of Abel’s companions, Lucy’s ancestor, the loli Sage, and Anna, Makoto must be one of the lost to history ones, or his appearance is what drives the apostle insane….

  1. Alright this is kind of development that’s to be expected. There’s some part that suspicious about “the condition” having someone to send backwards. It just like in the beginning they aiming for makoto to save the world together with hero

    1. My guess is that the opposing gods gave a bit of assistance for this history rewrite spell in retaliation for the demigod incident with Alex. Also is it just me or does it feel like we’re gonna find out the gods for the demons are also goddesses and are the sisters of the human goddesses fathered by Jupiter… it wouldn’t surprise me at this point

    2. Though the circumstances were suspicious, I think this is just the regular Makoto’s luck. My bet is another unknown effect of RPG Players, to be able to make a convenient condition fell into his lap.

  2. Thanks for the chapter.

    So there is time travel. Soooooo, will he be able to go back to the present? Or is the coffin held by the vampire loli really makoto?

  3. Ira-sama’s mistake, huh… That does sound like something that could happen…
    HAHAHAHA. Poor Ira. She is so pitiful. Makoto doesn’t miss a chance to diss her.

    “Takatsuki Makoto…can you please go 1,000 years into the past, save Hero Abel…and save the world?” (Althena)
    Okay, time travel theory confirmed ! It explains why Bifrons mistook Makoto for someone. Because it was actually Makoto and not someone else ! It would also explain why the Great Sage seems so close to Makoto and about the RPG Player Skill . They must have traveled together.
    On a side note, Orihalcun – > Orichalcum

    Okay, Makoto, time to make a choice ! Will you go to the past and save Abel ?
    https://i.imgur.com/QRSBU7x.jpg

    1. Nice Timing, stein gate 😂.
      I didn’t expect this time travel theory is true. Anyways, they request something outrageous. Did thry even think what feel of his lovers if makoto will sent to the past. This Ira is not doing her job better. Sigh… I pity sofia he would be broke again. And Furiae just confess recently and you want to send away, i want Furiae shipping damn. Author-san😐

  4. Thanks for the chapter~

    Just curious, is it Orihalcun or Orichalcum? And what’s the different in Devil and Demons? If i recalled, Devils are a cross of humans and demons right?

    Anyway, well it seems most people’s thought that Makoto is getting sent to the past is true after all hahah, and i wonder why do the author stressed the Saviour Abel’s Statue condition. It being ashen in colour, could it be just an indication that the history is changing?

    Ahh, with Makoto travels back in time, i’d like to know how his relation with Hero Abel is going to be, since so far Makoto’s relationship with other male member isn’t showing up that much lol. Speaking of male member, i kinda sad about Fuji-yan, unable to see Makoto before he gone.

    Sofia and Janet-san seems getting closer like Lucy and Aya, too bad we might can’t see it more if Makoto were to accept Althena-sama request (Oh we know sure he would accept it).

    Well, you better prepared to face Ira-sama, Makoto. God knows what she would do to you if you leave Sofia xD

      1. Aside from having Divinity in the past, I don’t see anything that would make him different from other humans. The Gods probably noticed the change, but why would a mere human be able to notice the statue changing colors ?

          1. @otakukamikazes, that was good point . This would be good reference for another theory. O thought this would be a sweet chapters ahead cause Furiae just confess but… Sigh… Time to predict what happen again.

    1. Imagine posting a comment based on what we have read and our own imagination and speculations only to get some one whom already read the raw answer it with a spoiler.
      It’s extremely rude and irritating and I’m talking from experience. It happened the previous chapter and the one before.
      Reigokai deleted them almost immediately but I still read them unfortunately enough.

      1. yeah I’m cool with speculation even if it comes true, but someone who read the raws then spoiling is definitely a big no, that’s why I rarely read comments

  5. I’m surprised he didn’t realize earlier that he would be “chosen”. Is Clear Mind active right now?
    I was expecting something like:

    “It has to be an otherworlder!”
    Makoto’s back is drenched in cold sweat.

    “His skills and stats must be lower than Mid Rank.”
    Makoto’s legs are shaking.

    “Takatsuki Makoto, I choose you!”
    Makoto.exe has ceased to function.

    Thanks for the chapter

    1. I feel you bro, a weak guy like him will be sent to the past, which be stronger monster he would fight. And save abel. But judging by makoto’s personality i think he will thrilled by it. Cause you know he was excited when a Great Demon Lord is revive 😂.

      1. And he is going to meet his apostle senpai
        I wonder just how crazy he really is and I mean… Kane? Was that the name?
        Either way Makoto is crazy and so was his senpai.
        If they hook up they will make for an awesome duo.
        The question is, will the apostle senpai be girl or a man I don’t remember reading anything about it

      2. Now that mention it. I think i will bet on makoto whos the craziest cause you know he just, well so god excited about a great demon lord reviving, like going on a field trip. Yeah for a gamer minds challenging demon kings is quite good opportunities for exp purposes 😂

    2. You got his reaction backwards, this is the same guy who saw a child predator attacking his friends as a good opportunity to break some laws, and get away without serious trouble. His palms probably got sweaty, knees got shaky, and everything else, but out of the feeling that he’s about to go on one of those no turning back quests. He’s probably excited about the bonus xp, but worried about not having enough healing items and nowhere to acquire more once he gets there.

    3. What can we say. Makoto’s airheaded just like Ira.

      He was probably in denial. It’s not me. It’s not me. Who’s this Makoto you speak of? What a coincidence I have the same name!

  6. With those conditions, literally the only person who could make a difference would be Makoto.
    Also, that makes me think about that unnamed person from the past. Could it actually be Makoto?
    Or would he be a different addition to the Hero’s party? Or would he be a behind the scenes character? Or would he end up changing the world by accidentally becoming the hero who saved the world?
    Also, if he dies 1000 years in the past, would he be able to come back through the revival ceremony into the present? Like, maybe through the pacts to the people of the present preserving those parts of him.

  7. Thanks for the chapter 😀
    Ugggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Fuckmothering time travel
    I might have to skim this arc

  8. Takatsuki Makoto has unlocked the hell mode! But no wonder every mid and low spell user would fail to save Abel who is the light hero. Unless…there is one with 999 magic proficiency and could use spirit magic!!

    If Rosalie went to the past instead she would probably forget about Abel and go to fight the great demon king instantly. All levels would be skipped and she would go for the last boss

    Thanks for the chapter!

  9. Thanks for the chapter!!!!

    “Takatsuki Makoto…can you please go 1,000 years into the past, save Hero Abel…and save the world?” (Althena)
    “No.”(Makoto)
    –THE END–

    1. I sincerely hope he makes an incredibly unreasonable demand in exchange for this incredibly unreasonable demand.
      I mean, a reward like setting Noah free or allowing him to become a spirit king without getting murdered for it

      1. Yeah that’s what I’m hoping for

        “Takatsuki Makoto…can you please go 1,000 years into the past, save Hero Abel…and save the world?” (Althena)
        “Ahaha idk abt that chief.”(Makoto)

        “Hey can you unlock my spirit king form because being murdered is not ideal” (Makoto)

    2. Makoto would probably do it anyway. It’s the guy who gets excited to be able to see the great demon king we’re talking about. He would want to see the Og battle and the original hero party. Well but he could also refuse it to not leave his loved ones. Though if he doesn’t leave anyways whole world would end so it would be pointless to not leave

      1. I mean, the last line didn’t exactly imply excitement.
        Of course he’ll do it though, because he gets so much out of his relationships with the girls (Or so we hear, hopefully he can atleast get his dick wet after saving the entire world past and present)

      2. Well if she only likes him because of his virginity shes not a true friend, like the really sanctimonious Christians

    3. “We can’t do that, but how about you get a romantic interest who has been stated to look 10? you’re sexually aroused by 10 year olds right? Its not creepy because-”
      ………
      …………..
      ……………….
      because Japan” (Althena)

  10. This reminds me of the ending of Earthbound. Bad guys go to the past to destroy the world. Young hero goes back as well, unsure if he can ever return. Final battle takes place in the distant past. You cannot comprehend the true nature of Gygas’ attack, Etc.

  11. I wouldn’t be surprised if it were Isaac who went back to mess with the past.

    Once in the past, the Great Sage herself can put him into stasis or turn him into a vampire to survive the millenium.

    Also, what’s the over/under on Makoto’s harem size in the past? Since this is only an arc, I’m guessing 2 if we discount the Great Sage & Goddesses.

    1. Isaac is dead though. At least, as far as we know he is.

      And if Makoto were to turn vampire he’d lose his access to spirit magic. Spirits and undeads don’t mix.

  12. IIRC there’s an unnamed party member in the hero party 1000 years ago?

    What if that was makoto all along?

    Wth? Can someone verify? If this is true then the timeline is one hell of a twisted knot.

    Thanks for the chapter.

    1. There was an unnamed party member mentioned before. Also demon king Bifrost got scared of Makoto but then said “No that would be impossible”.There were some hints here and there but i feel contradictory.

      Let’s say there was an unnamed member. But wasn’t he/she there before the timeline start changing? I would be ok if there was a solid timeline that Makoto would go to past and be a hero party member from the start but it seems there was already an original timeline without Makoto that got interfered. And it will start changing now.So i don’t think we can rely on those hints too much since they’re info from og timeline.

      Time travel stuff is always hurting my brain…

      1. Maybe the timeline changing is a lie from the goddesses, since if its true they would have told Makoto beforehand and send him without announcing it to the people there.

        1. So the statue changing colors and people changing the way they adress Abel is goddess’ doing. I don’t think they would do that honestly

    2. There is also the legend of Hero Abel he didn’t marries Princess Anna and he left saying that someone was waiting for him and disappeared for the world.

  13. I can’t wait for this arc! It’s guaranteed that Makoto goes to the past, but how will he act with the Goddesses’ of that time! And why has Savior Abel become Hero Abel?

  14. We won’t be able to see Ira in the mortal realm anymore? That’s really bad news. I praised her character in the comments in earlier chapters and this is what i got back lol

    But she could still enter Makoto’s dreams with Noah

    1. I wonder if the Goddesses from the past will have their memories linked to the present or not?
      And if not, will those Goddesses have the same evaluation of Makoto like the ones in the present?
      And most of all, Noah is on the enemy side at the past right? So will Makoto have to fight against Past Noah and her believers?

  15. This is my 3rd comment but i forgot to share my theory. Not a spoiler a theory!

    If i remember coreectly Great Sage once asked “Do you know where Abel is?” to someone. “Or maybe it was something like “What happened to Abel” i’m not sure. But since Abel’s whereabouts were unknown after the final battle and Makoto will go to the past most likely isn’t there a chance Abel return back to the future with Makoto? I want to see that

    1. The legend of the Hero and the saint says that in the end Abel leave princess Anna saying that someone was waiting for him and no one knows anything about him since that time.

    2. Back then, in earlier chapter, the ending of hero Abel story is that he rejects Anna’s courtship because “there’s someone who’s been waiting for him” and then goes to nobody knows where.

      There’s 2 possibilities there:

      1. Abel becomes such a bro with Makoto just like Sakurai, and goes off to the future to fight demons alongside him. That mysterious coffin might be his.
      2. Makoto is indeed the “unnamed party member” and his story were mixed with Abel for some reason.

  16. Thank you very much for the chapter.

    Now I see, he will go back into the past where he can’t return, this is the same as killing him.

    I cant imagine how sofia, aya, lucy, and furie which he made strong bonds with would feel, unlike us which I think we already know where he is, to them when he is sent into the past even if he could save the saviour abel, he would still die in old age, its really hard for them.

    1. Who said that he couldn’t return? Also I didn’t know but no one said that…..Also they previously said that the only one that can use resurrection was Noel …… Chapters later Ira revive Makoto

      1. Well I just base it on if the inside of the coffin of the great white sage is makoto, then there might be a possibility of no return.

        1. Since he is the MC there should be plot armor.

          Also no one of the people in his side has been killed permanently until now , only mob characters and evil characters are dead .

      2. There is a possibility that he can’t return with magic but frizzes himself and has the white loli guarding his body.
        That’s why her house is made of ice like cristal and there’s a coffin (unless she uses it to sleep herself).
        That’s my theory at least

  17. I thought this might happen (there is no way we wouldn’t see the hero Abel and the infamous Noah previous believer the dark hero 😋) I’m even half hopping that he could convince past Noah to not side with the demons but I know that that would change history so it will probably not happen 😓, at least this explains Abel’s supposed last words after defeating the great demon king (something about saving a goddess trapped) but althena confirmed that undoubtedly there was someone with the light hero skill 1000 ago🤔, if Abel was actually makoto then who was the light hero?🤔 Some unknown character that for some reason couldn’t receive the credit and chose to remain nameless? Or Is past althena is going to give the light hero skill to makoto?

      1. Don’t remember which chapter, but it was a little after sakurai told everyone about his childhood with makoto and and after sakurai gone rest princess Noel asked makoto what he was planning on doing after the great demon lord defeat and he said that, then she got mad at him for copying Abel’s phrase

      2. I remember it because I’ve been wondering until now what connection Abel could have with Noah (time travel and makoto being Abel didn’t seem possible until now)

      3. Not to the Great Demon Lord, but to Anna after defeating the GDL. Something along the lines of “I have someone waiting for me.” Makoto said that to Noel in the party, and he meant Noah (Makoto is pretty set on setting Noah free).

  18. so Makoto is Abel huh …. At one point the real Abel existed but how they rewrote the story Makoto is Abel (or so it seems)

    Remember the legend of the Hero Abel and the Saint Anna, He left saying that he had someone waiting for him and no more was heard from him.

      1. That’s one possibility I don’t know for sure,but since the beginning was weird how the saviour of humanity just went and disappeared from the world.

        Now that it is known that the demons tried to rewrite the past it makes more sense. I was thinking that there are two possibilities:
        Due to the intervention of the demons with the timeline now Makoto is (or always was, these things are only known when you get to the moment they happen) Abel and that would explain why he never had a partner and in the end he goes and explains to Anna that he is going because someone is waiting for him.
        The second option is that Abel exists and Makoto only helps him defeat the great demon lord but in the final battle Abel dies fulfilling his mission but if he dies he would change the story, so Makoto transforms into him and pretends that Abel did not die in the end he uses that part of the legend where Abel leaves and no one ever hears anything from him to return to the present.

  19. i want to see the harems reaction! maybe ira-chan can send makoto to 1.000 years ago but she cant bring him back? maybe makoto really the one in the coffin before?

  20. Wow! That’s twist. Thankfully I make habit not to read comments. It is really surprising!

    I already predicted (in my mind) that Makoto will go time travel since Bifron recognize him but to actually happenned.

    I just hope Abel has good personality considering we will probably have to deal with him for a long time… Thanks for the chapter!

  21. Well thanks to the comments we knew the time travel was coming I just thought it was gonna be the plot of the demons to remove Sakurai or Makoto and not a request of the goddess. The question now is can the goddesses keep contacting him in real time like always or are they also effected by the time jump leaving Makoto truly alone in the past. Also how is he gonna fit in with Abel and his party, hes gonna be a complete stranger with unknown origins and horrendous stats unless they know about how strong spirit magic is.

  22. I doubt that the requirement really matters, I had the feeling that they are setting him up as the hero since there is a time where great sage said that Abel is cautious and not hero like, which tbh is similar to makoto.

  23. Eh… I guess I’ll see how this plays out. But I feel like this chapter dropped my interest in this novel massively. Time travel… never doesn’t cause all kinds of problems. Then we have the whole Makoto-only thing…
    And I just don’t really care for what this adds up to. So we ditch everybody we already know but Makoto, and then also have to deal with trying really hard to ignore any and all time-related problems? Meh. It’s just not why I wanted to read this.
    Unless Makoto gets out of this somehow – which I doubt – or the whole arc is over in a handful of chapters – which I also doubt – I think I might just be done with this. Bleh. And I’d been so into it recently too. Pity.

    1. I do not know if it is considered a spoiler, but your doubts seem to be saved. The saga “the world a thousand years ago” does not aim to be long and the author does not seem that he is going to abandon the other characters, although we still have to see

      1. Well, I’m glad to hear that. Hopefully you’re right. I guess I’ll just have to slog through for awhile and hope things quickly move on and I can forget this ever happened.

      2. Yet it is the longest arc (more that 50 chapters and still not finished)
        But at he would probably meet the great sage (if it miss even one member of Legendary party, it probably game over), so at least we know one person.

    2. next arc is probably the longest one, but author is at least aware of it and fast-forwarding it
      author have been racking his brains to make extra SS chapter because the readers have been pestering him in the comment section that they forgot the heroines and their names

      1. … Oh. Well. Thanks for the real information. Then I think that’s my cue to leave. This has been pretty good, but it’s taken a fair while to reach this point. This isn’t even 250 chapters yet. So 50+ chapters is pushing a full quarter of this book. I don’t think I can tolerate that.
        I don’t understand why authors so frequently enjoy throwing out all of their hard work. They spent so much effort building all of this up, why would you just throw it all away? If the creator themselves can’t bother to care about their creation, how are the readers supposed to?

        1. That’s taking it pretty far there. Saying the author threw away their hard work when you haven’t even given it a chance at all and have judged it bad just from time travelling alone.

          The author has foreshadowed time travelling more than a hundred chapters ago, so this wasn’t out of nowhere.

          If time travelling itself is what you hate, then that’s too bad. But going as far as slandering the author for it is something that I wouldn’t recommend. And it is worse when you haven’t even read it yet to judge anything.

          Again, if it is the time travelling theme itself you hate, then don’t read it. Don’t blame the author for it, and no less at the very moment the author even mentions it.

        2. eh? what do you mean by throwing?
          all of the future arc did was confirming all the fact we’ve known about the past, and building up other things to end in one grand finale

          Ira is still there, and we got glimpses of people who’ve been left by Makoto, and probably more for LN content

      2. I could deal with just the time travel. I admit I really, really don’t like it. It basically breaks any chance for a coherent plot. However I’m not (wasn’t?) reading this for the plot, so… whatever, I guess. I’m already kind of forcefully not thinking about some aspects of this story (like the magic…), so one more thing is… not great but fine, I guess.

        What gets me is leaving behind the characters and relationships. 50+ chapters in a 200+ chapter book is huge. As you or the other guy said, comments on the original are already coming in that readers are forgetting the names of the people left behind. That will be me if I keep reading.

        I’m not giving it a chance, because there’s no point. There’s no way to keep those characters and relationships active and meaningful when they literally don’t exist (in the same time as the MC, or whatever). There is no way for the author to possibly write the next 50+ chapters without them, while also doing it with them. The only thing I liked in this story was those relationships. Those are now on indefinite hold. At best we’ll get a few moments with Noah.

        It’s like asking why I’m not going to give an empty bowl a chance, after somebody has taken all the ice cream out of it. I wanted the ice cream, not the bowl, you know?

  24. Then later Makoto will accidentally saved the princess from 2000 years ago and asked ” Where have you come from?” And he answered “From an endless time and an immeasurable distance”

    Ah wait, that’s different novel

    1. “That royal crest engraved on your breastplate… Your appearance, your mannerisms, and your honor indicate you are without a doubt a true knight of Forthorthe, but…”

      “I have no recollection of that crest on your armor and sword. Just where have you come from?”

      “…From an endless time and an immeasurable distance.”

  25. Let’s assume that Abel and Makoto are different entities. It is no wonder the Great Sage paid no mind to Sakurai, the supposed reincarnate Abel the Saviour, and instead flocked to Makoto instead (and acted familiar to him plus paid no mind to his bluntness).
    If Makoto==Abel, then it makes more sense that he ran away from the princess to go back to his real time and chose to save Noah instead. Though it doesn’t make sense since Noah kept claiming she only had one believer at that time. Still, since the nature of Makoto is attracting special heroines, I guess it is possible that Makoto==Abel.

  26. Thanks for the chapter (´-﹏-`)
    Also makoto, it’s time to say goodbye to your harem,so make sure you leaves a child on your harem’s tummy

  27. Okay, this just hit the fan.
    Now it is confirmed that Makoto has something to do with hero Abel. Great sage did know his skill even without any input,and I doubt her appraisal couls find it out when Noah herself took time to analyse its effect. There’s also the vampire demon king’s reaction, though he did follow up that he did mistake Makoto since he can’t differentiate humans, but I also doubt that random reason since Makoto will surely not be missing meeting the vampire demon king if he does time travel.

  28. So Makoto will go back in time huh… So the question that Lord Bifrons asked “why are you here!?” (Ch145-ch146) Or among that lines is because he met Makoto 1000 years ago… Damn, the author did plan this from a long time then :O

  29. This chapter made my spine tingle. I haven’t read ahead, but here are some hints to what I’m thinking.

    Iblis in Wood Country seems familiar with Makoto.
    Apostle of Noah goes crazy 1000 years ago.
    Abel ditches the throne of Highland for someone waiting.

    The last one doesn’t help connect any thoughts, but I don’t think ‘someone’ is the Moon Oracle. I don’t think Makoto = Abel. That’s too contrived.

  30. So I have questions: if he goes back in time, is his pact with Noah void? (Like can he then contract with other gods?) Will he be able to increase his stats and/or magic rank more? (Maybe even evolve?) Will he be able to get fire/wind/earth/wood/light magic and get those proficiencies up to 999+?
    Time travel messes with so many things… which is why it really shouldn’t be used as a plot device as often as it is…

    1. I think it will be voided considering it’s on another timeline. And take note of how many disciples Noah can have, it’s only one meaning it will contradict if ever Makoto’s contract isn’t nulled.

  31. I was getting kind of annoyed. Like Maloti should have realized it that he could go. He waited, he was clueless till Althena called his name directly. Seriously it was irritating seeing someone being so clueless.😩

  32. Uh oh. Only 1 will be sent to the past. Will it be a 1 way ticket just to save the future?

    The girls would definitely object it I believe. Damn can’t wait for the next chapters to come out.

    Thanks for the chapter!!

  33. Thank you kami-sama.
    This must be why the demon lord from the elf country thought he looked familiar. He didn’t recognize him because he was lot weaker at the time compared to when they meet in the past. My guess not a spoiler.

    1. Another thing is that Bifrons also went something along the lines of “wait that person wasn’t a hero”. Well, in the distant past Makoto can technically claim that, since there’s no Rozes to recognize him as hero, and he doesn’t have any Hero skill.

  34. It actually makes sense since they have also stated that there’s one hero journeying together with the Hero party (forgot which chapter was it) but wasn’t known. I speculate it to be Makoto since he will be sent 1000 years to the past and some kind of paradox happened which resulted his name to disappear. Man this novel is getting good, I’m glad i didn’t drop this.

    1. It’s either time paradox or by conscious effort on his part (and maybe the goddesses’). It won’t do to be remembered in the far future as being one of the legendary heroes while he’s still a noob. Then the demons might recognize him, figured that time travel shenanigans is involved, and then kill him while he’s weak.

  35. So it’s like we thought and he will be going into the past! this explains why the demon lord recognized him and very likely what the thing the great sage is protecting in her house is. so I guess it isn’t that he is hero Abel himself, which wouldn’t really work since he doesn’t have the skills for it and he has already declined even temporarily switching beliefs for more skills. I’m really looking forward to this next arc. Also, I’m curious whether or not the great sage will realize that she already has a pact with him in her soul book when he arrives.

  36. wow, so he really going TT, thou it is not great sage but Ira-chan..
    i even did believe so untill this chap..
    so it really happen huh…
    i wonder how he going to return…

    also i believe Makoto is pretty famous on his own.
    and what about Noah. since he going to TT won’t he become her Enemy since she is still sided with demon.

    1. Makoto’s fame seem to be strictly limited to the human end of things at least. Unlike Sakurai’s Light Hero, Spirit Magic is just rare instead of “literally only one person has it”. That, and basically all the (demon-side) enemies who witnessed Makoto’s full powers end up dead.

  37. Okay so; Time shenanigans. It goes beyond being simply coincidental and starts being suspicious at this point that Makoto so specifically fits the very narrow criteria for time travel. Specifically, I suspect that some God foresaw or was forewarned to ‘create’ Makoto by placing a limiter on his growth. Maybe after he time travels he’ll be able to power up.

    Oh! Hey what do you want to bet his blood pact with the great sage is still effective in the past? I mean technically he’ll still have drunk her blood, but she won’t yet have had any of his. Or rather; He will still be Noah’s follower, so how’s that going to work? She was solidly on the “Kill Able” side at the time, right?

    1. Yes I think the pacts still holds

      They are written in the soul board after all

      And we knew that such things like gods aren’t really affected much by time shenanigans

      Would Noah trust Makoto though?

      Even if we say he comes from the future Noah ain’t a destiny Goddess to know of a future right?

      This really complicates things don’t they

    2. Since there is time travel involved I’m starting to wonder if this is all predestination. Bifrons seemed to have recognized Makoto before thinking he was mistaken, then the Great Sage wanted to ask Bifrons about ‘someone else’ that seemingly was also in the Hero party in the past and finally General Taliska compared Makoto to Abel saying that he acts exactly like him in that he rushes headlong into danger at the drop of a hat.

      As for the pacts I think the blood pact would still be intact but I don’t know about the one with Noah. Remember that Noah is only allowed to have one follower at a time and Makoto will be travelling to a time when Cain is Noah’s follower. As for how past Noah will react, I don’t know. I guess it might depend on when exactly Makoto gets sent back in time. Noah was on Typhon’s side initially because he promised he’d free her but then he went back on his promise after she commanded Cain to join Iblis so if Makoto gets sent to when the war with Iblis initially began then Noah probably would still be all “Kill Abel” but if he gets sent to a point where the war is already underway then Noah might just be resentful that she got tricked by Typhon.

  38. can’t wait to see Makoto meet up with Cain? and will makoto see noah? also is this the first time makoto send in the past or is it a continuous cycle?

  39. I see. So the demons are trying to rewrite history. I guess that explains why Abel’s statue has been changing colors. It was a sign that history is in flux. That also explains why they previously referred to Abel as just ‘Hero Abel’ in the previous chapter instead of Savior. Also Makoto’s outside perspective from RPG Player made him unaffected since he noticed all of that.

    Anyways so now they are gonna send somebody back in time to keep Abel from getting killed and rewriting history like in Terminator. Still I don’t get why Ira has to be punished for doing it. The devils broke the rules first since they said that they helped the demons with this magic spell to rewrite history and we know that it must have been done a while ago since Makoto had noticed Abel’s statue being a different color when he first returned to Symphonia. Anyways yeah the other side broke the rules first so who cares if Ira sends someone back in time? What, are the devils gonna complain about it? They got no moral high ground they can stand on to demand Ira get punished.

    Meanwhile I guess it’s time for Makoto to have some wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey shenanigans. Hopefully he doesn’t created some time paradox and he becomes his own grandpa. Also Makoto better demand some form of compensation from Althena and the other goddesses before he goes back in time. Why should he work for free?

    1. Per se it is Ira who broke rules first: persistent descent. It is forbidden.
      Not to mention concealment of Alex, demigod, and making him an active hero. Even using him to erase Snake Church

    2. “Hopefully he doesn’t created some time paradox and he becomes his own grandpa”

      Remember that Great Sage said there’ll be sad consequences if he kept continuing to be Noah’s Apostle? If that is referring to how Makoto will meet her in the past and parted, your worries won’t come true

    3. The question of why Ira should be punished is a question I asked as well. For now my conclusion is that what Typhon is supposedly (supposedly, because we haven’t had proper confirmation of it in-story, this is Ira’s guesswork) doing is basically the same thing Noah did earlier during Bifrons’ resurrection. Back then, Makoto offered his lifespan to get 30 minutes of god-tier shielding right? That’s technically Noah’s doing, and yet that’s apparently okay. So presumably, Typhon is working under the same constraints, just on a much larger scale (both are sacrificial magic). Meanwhile, Ira as a Holy God is on the side that bans the use of sacrificial spell, so this is her personal intervention. That’s probably what will be considered rule-breaking.

  40. I have a guess. I thought it was the light hero, but perhaps… That’s Makoto’s body sealed in the great sage’s residence. That would mean that the history we’ve been exposed to was the modified one from the start, though.

    Anyway, if true… The moon oracle’s romance arc is done, so now it’s the great sage’s turn? Lol.

  41. So, Makoto is up for a time-travel. But wonder why he is against it? With his no-fear habitual sticking head into trouble.
    Nice opportunity to meet his Senpai-kun. Very nice opportunity to unravel that mysterious phrase(aggro trigger) of immortal demon lord(what’s his name again?)
    Opportunity to imprint on young “GreatSage-chan”, by proving his pact w/her.
    Also a funny contradiction of Noah-chan having 2! apostles in same timeframe. In a timeframe she was allied with demons. With 2 possible outcomes: one being the reason why demons betrayed her(her apostle helping Abel, duh, is she still an ally or works on 2 sides?!) and the second is him “spoiling” Noah demons’ betrayal, and subsequently turning Makoto’s senpai against demons. Last one is serious plus to popularity of Noah by changing history

    1. Name’s Bifrons, after one of the 72 Goetic demons (or Demon God Pillars if you play FGO).

      As for him hesitating…, consider that he’d be up against final-boss level encounters there, for one. Makoto does tend to jump headlong into trouble, but those times it’s usually because not jumping into trouble is actually just as troublesome, or it’s not actually trouble at all. Basically, he’s more mistaken as being rash while he actually does think his decisions through.

  42. Hi everyone,

    It’s my first time posting here.

    I’ve almost read everything in one go, and since it’s a bit fresh, i am curious too about how Makoto will handle the past. I wonder how he’ll stay hidden from the Goddesses (and Noah’s) radar.

    I cant wait to see it.

  43. The statue changing colour meant to symbolize able achievement being overwritten since it seems to degrade in quality? if it’s not that I struggle to see why that statue is the only thing that changes. Also Makoto having a ripple effect-proof memory is weird since I don’t think clear mind works like that and his fellow otherworlder seems to be affected. Also from the foreshadowing and evidences from the previous chapter, Makoto time travel’s is supposed to happen aka a stable time loop.

    1. Makoto would be unaffected because rpg player makes it so his mind isn’t really affected by the world as a side-effect, remember?

  44. Thanks for the chapter

    TIME TRAVEL IS HERE

    You people remember the time travel theory everyone’s been thinking of and half-accepted in this site? Congratulations, it’s official now. Time to scrounge up details from past chapter.

    Also it’s fine to drop the arc names for now right?

    This arc name is “Farewell” (別れ)

  45. We are finally here! I’m really curious about the time travel arc. I’m guessing Makoto will go directly to the Great Sage as the present her will tell him how to deal with her past self… but he will have to stay under the goddesses radars? Is it even possible? And what about Noah? I mean, the only one that was hinting about Makoto travelling back in time till now was the Great Sage. Does it means the goddesses didn’t meet Makoto 1000 years ago?
    And I’m joining the team thinking the Great Sage sama house was made by our MC

  46. pretty sure he will become the hero when he went back to the past (hinted by the statue of abel is changing/looks strange)

    maybe abel in turn goes to the future and ‘finish the job’, hence why he went missing 1000 years ago?

  47. Whoa. That’s quite a bombshell. That said, there was already a lot of speculation that Takatsuki would end up going to the past. Some of them might’ve even been straight up spoilers.

    Well, with this, the mystery of the changing statue color and odd number of connections to the past has been cleared up. Rather…isn’t Takki actually concerning similar to the Savior Abel?
    …Did Abel actually die in the final battle, and Takki just replaced him to keep the legend alive?

    Actually, more interestingly…will Takki be able to get some big benefits for Noah for helping them out in such a big way? And for that matter, what’s the Noah of the past going to think of her suddenly having this amazing believer that shouldn’t be able to exist-a second Apostle?

  48. Thanks for the chapter. As much as I don’t like it, it seems the time travel theory actually came true. That means there’s either some sort of predestination paradox (Makoto was meant to travel back in time and become Abel) or he’ll take the place of Abel to ensure events occur as they should. Damn shame about Furiae though, who got no chance to have some more romantic moments even though she just confessed.

  49. That’s a lot of dumb restrictions that the time travel has. But then again this novel is about cliffhangers and not about the author’s skill in writing lololol

  50. Thanks for the chapter.

    So, be honest, from which point you understood ONLY Makoto could go the past ?
    (For me it was skill below middle rank restriction)

    And if go the past Makoto would be stronger : the more olympian Gods have influence over the world the weaker spirit magic become.
    So :
    Dark cloud of great Demon lord + Olympian Gods none existing influence =
    Spirit magic Full Power ! He could propably free Noah there.

    1. For me, I pretty much zeroed in on Takki as soon as they said only one person could go. Meta reasons aside, who else can reliably overturn bad situations other than him?

  51. Ira and Makoto are just made for each other. Two trouble making airheads. I honestly wanted to see Fujiyan’s reaction to it.

    Oh boy Sophia just gulped. She’s going to cry for sure and if she’s any indication, then so will the other girls + Sakurai & Fujiyan. So he’s probably going to the past.

    What if Abel is dead already? Would Makoto have to use his transformation skill to role play as Abel until the Great Demon Lord is killed? It kind of makes sense now that Bifron’s sort of recognized Makoto if so. Apostles of titans and spirit users are stronger under the dark clouds according to Noah.

    The goddesses really like their role play. It felt like watching a theatrical drama just to ask Makoto to go back, but I suppose it is necessary somewhat to keep their reputation and a reason for future Makoto’s absence. Did Eir set it up? Or Ira?

  52. Thanks for the chapters! I haven’t read ahead so anything I say is speculative and not a spoiler! I know the chances of me being one of those receiving a warning for spoilers is abysmally low, but I don’t wanna get banned XD.

    That being said, man, that thing with the statue was really bugging me so I’m glad we finally got to know the reason why, and boy, I gotta admit it was a really cool and scary discovery! Now we have Makoto going into the past, which means he won’t be able to stop Sakurai from getting stabbed… or will he? Makoto has shown many times his ability to turn the tables on the enemy. His Spirit King transformation is sealed and he’ll be going alone, so I suspect he’s going to have to come up with a new strategy, and I have a feeling he’s going to do so after learning some things from Abel and his party.

    Regardless, the numerous possibilities have me excited for what’s to come!

  53. thanks for chap
    I have just one thing to say
    “I KNEW ITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT”!!!!!!!!
    the prediction of mc time travelling and all the troupe foreshadowing are true

    and the coffin in Great sage’s hut is mostly MC !!

  54. > Althena: “History Rewrite… It is a destiny spell that interferes with the past.”
    This has become a final fantasy series turning point…

    > What the hell is this chapter.
    If Ira and Althena is selling a product, im sure i will buy for taking my interest to the maximum by listening to them…

    > Im imaging that Makoto will meet Hero Abel and saw him very differently.
    Hero Abel wearing Checkard long sleeve polo, twirling glass, nice hairstyle, nice jeans, backup with portruding poster and a bandana with heart symbol in the middle.

  55. Let’s see now, Makoto mentioned three things : unlimited youth, time stop, and time travel. Conservation of detail means if one of those happens, the other two are likely to happen as well.

    And now Sofia caught on, probably about the earlier time when she mentioned Abel as Hero rather than Savior considering how she’s speaking properly now.

    So sacrificial magic is an option here. I wonder how the rules actually work? Direct interference isn’t okay, but interfering in response to a sacrifice is okay? Basically, they’re just not allowed to interfere by expending their own power? It’s not different from earlier when Noah gave Makoto that shielding spell in exchange for his lifespan. Human gives life, their god intervenes. So Ira’s direct intervention here is a no-no but Typhon’s (presumed) intervention is fine because of that? And then we have two efforts to change the past here, how does it going to look like once all is said and done?

    Making use of Ira’s reputation for mistakes 😂. Ira is clumsy, but she’s a hard worker!

    Also some inconsistency, ping Reigokai : Ira said lower than Mid rank, but Noel responded by saying someone who has Mid rank or below. Ira probably more accurately said “Mid rank or lower,” as well, or something along that line.

    And the big Quest is offered! HYPE!!!

    Man I can’t wait for next chapter, we’re getting to the really good part here.

  56. I don’t know why exactly, but I just do not like this development at all. It’s wat too sudden and without any foreshadowing at all :/ it feels cheap and not earned for any side. How come the gods somehow landed themselves in. That situation? Aren’t they too useless? How come just a few thousands lives are enough to overwrite the fate of the whole planet? Wouldn’t it be reenact this forbidden technique rather than to send one uncertain element to the past and hope for the best?… however you spin it this development has been executed waaaaaaaaay too poorly

    So many questions and the only answer is probably gonna be “plot armor m8, we need tension”

    1. Uh…the spoiler comments aside, it was pretty heavily hinted for a while now that time travel would be happening. There are a whole bunch of things that tied Takatsuki to the past way too much for him to not have been there in some capacity.

  57. Oh look, the story is progressing exactly like some “theories” in the comments of past chapters… *sight*

    I will stop reading the comments from now on.

  58. I wouldn’t say its way to sudden based on the past chapters. Makoto had already mentioned noticing a change with the Abel statue in a past chapter and this chapter confirms what the discrepancy was that he was noticing. Apparently, it was slowly losing its luster since then or even before (since he only had to go to the Sun country a few times).

    Its most likely many were sacrificed for this and it wasn’t something that just happened right away but over time since Abel was still remembered as the savior chapters back.

  59. Makoto is the best choice for this cause even though he’s an apprentice mage, his power will be a lot stronger in the past where there were more spirits. This should be his OP moment with his spirit magic at 999.

  60. Thanks for the chapter and thanks to the sponsors! ^^
    So the time travel wasn’t caused by the Devils to get rid of Makoto as compensation but they rewrote history instead.
    I suppose they can use the excuse of Ira sending Makoto to the past as a punishment for transforming and killing (or almost) the Sun Hero and so going overboard in her punshment?
    Hope he will ask great compensations for that job.
    Let’s hope they will handle this time travel correctly.

    1. No… they’re intent on hiding that they will send ANYONE. Makoto can be sent unnoticed. Therefore, no excuses need be made.

      In fact, Makoto isn’t even a believer of any Holy Goddesses. Making it even easier to hide/deny.

    2. I think that Abel is actually someone weak who is just liked by gods and wouldnt be capable of defeating demon lord… cause remember when he first met demon lord (the immortal guy) then that demon lord recognized makoto which was always stuck in my head and now its finally clear… it wasnt Abel who saved world but it always was makoto cause 1000 years ago he will be way more powerfull cause more spirits everywhere

  61. Well… Looking at the conversation from the begining of this chapter, it is definitely had to be him… 😁
    And considering that the faith to the Olimpians quite low, I think he will be more powerful at that timeline, given that spirit should be abundant.

  62. Well, why now I have the feeling that sun hero abel is makoto it self. If it’s right, it’ll answer why the hero abel got missing after defeated the demon lord iblis…

    1. I also have that feeling, remember that time moon Oracle (I think) ask makoto about something (can’t remember) and the answer is “there is someone waiting for me” and she got mad because she this makoto trying to act cool and copying the hero from 1000 years ago….

  63. I am surprised that being a virgin wasn’t tacked on as a precondition for time travel. By rights, Makoto should be pasted to the floor next chapter.

  64. So the statue turning from chalk colored to green, then ashen. Savior Abel to Hero Abel, and various other things. Now you see why… like ripples in a pond. Only Makoto’s memory was unaffected while things changed around him, and that’s why he noticed things weren’t quite right.

    Also I *think* I know how they altered the past. What is probably a loophole. They haven’t quite established this even in the current raws so I don’t know that it would be a spoiler (since I could be wrong), but perhaps I should remain quiet on my theory all the same since there are (what I take to be) clues in the untranslated chapters. I wish we had spoiler tags…

  65. How about this spin, instead of the theory that Abel is Makato. What if Abel was actually female and fell in love with Makato and after defeating the Great Demon Lord left to find the way to go forward in time to the present just to get back with him. Would make sense why Abel didn’t marry the 1st generation Sun Holy Maiden and was never seen again. Well, it’s a long shot theory tho.

    1. I only thought about this is because I really don’t think Abel is Makato because he would need the Light Hero’s exclusive skill, and because even the Gods can’t take away a skill after they’ve given it to someone. It would eventually lead to the present having 2 Light Heroes, and even then it would take 1000 years for the skill to be made and granted. Also Makoto would have to relinquish Noah’s Divine Protection and change faith to even gain the skill which I don’t see him doing.

      1. I think that Abel is actually someone weak who is just liked by gods and wouldnt be capable of defeating demon lord… cause remember when he first met demon lord (the immortal guy) then that demon lord recognized makoto which was always stuck in my head and now its finally clear… it wasnt Abel who saved world but it always was makoto cause 1000 years ago he will be way more powerfull cause more spirits everywhere

      2. Come to think of it, the sun was kinda blocked out in the past, so the Light Hero skill would be kinda gimped. Maybe Takatsuki’s gonna do some stuff and dump the credit on Abel…

  66. well… Makoto is an apprentice mage, but also a country hired hero. Makoto also apostle of Evil/ Old god. so even Ira can’t read his future…

    it’s understandable the Goddesses want to send Makoto to the past.
    and also, the “forbidden spell” doesn’t really work on Makoto because he realized the change of statue of Hero Abel. maybe because his RPG player skill. even charm of goddess doesn’t work too. haha

  67. Hmm. I’ve thought of a good reason why Makoto realised the changes.
    The RPG Player skill. He sees from a perspective OUTSIDE of the world. It is reasonable to think time doesn’t affect his perspective. After all, if you played a RPG with a story about going back in time and visible changes in the present the NPCs would be unable to perceive such a thing. You can see the changes because you are the RPG Player.

    Also first time commenting on any wn but this story is fun.
    Thanks Reigokai for the chapter!

  68. But if the hero abel was a woman after all, that cann’t answer the part why the Holy maiden Anna fell in love to the hero abel. I think, It’s only make some sense if the holy maiden Anna forgot all of his memories 1000 years ago.

  69. Hmm, would be bad if Ira-chan can’t descend more, is true that she is more useless most of the time, but lost the interactions between Makoto and her would be really bad, they are a pair too good to be separeted.

  70. So makoto will go back and talk friendly to the loli sage and fight Bifrons it seems, it all connects to their present reaction, classic time travel plot, it will be interesting to see the past people’s reaction, I hope only he will go, it will be more fun that way………………….

  71. Well … I mean… really?? Suddenly time magic? Is this just a ploy to add more members into his harem? Is the holy maiden from 1000 years ago gonna join? Is the great sage from 1000 years ago gonna join? I mean…

          1. Dammit I knew it! As soon as he got the shape shift skill I expected this to be done at some point.
            Well, at least my other fear of Sakurai falling for Makoto in female form is safe, what with a 1000 years between them. lol

    1. not suddenly, you can see signs before
      bifrons who kinda recognize him, great sage who always suspiciously avoids topic when talking about 1k years ago, etc
      now the word abel said to anna about : “there’s already someone who waits for me” makes sense

  72. From goblin cleaner to a silver adventurer to a hero to…apparently the man that goes Allah akhbar by spirit king

  73. shit, they are going to separate him from lucy, sa-san and Furiae, it is not fair that way it will be boring, if at least one of them accompanied him it would be fun, but he being alone does not feel good

    1. Actually with all the harem relationship baggage at the moment, it’s almost a plot necessity to split him off and give him a new adventure.
      It would take forever to incorporate enough story points for the girls to do if hey travelled with him and it of course would c*ck block any new romantic captures I guess?
      Not that I want to see anymore… LOL

  74. Sure. Want me to buy some milk while I am at it? Sheez.
    This confirms a lot of things though, it feels good to be right. I am guessing the statue will change into a new one even? What was it Bifrons said? He recognized him but denied it later. And how the Great Sage panicked, I mentioned that before as well. Him now knowing about the past made her very much at ease after all. One thing I can predict, he will be stronger in the past. Why? Spirits ofc, there would be tons of spirits all over the place, unlike now with all the “holy” gods
