WM – Chapter 253: Takatsuki Makoto fights Demon Lord Cain

“The Hero is acting separately, huh… I will have you spit out his location.” (Cain)

The man that’s clad in pitch black armor took stance with his giant greatsword as if it were light.

The Apostle of Noah-sama, Demon Lord Cain.

This is the 3rd time we met.

On the 1st time, I was desperate trying to not get killed.

The 2nd time, I escaped right away.

And now…

(Right now it is only me and Mel-san…) (Makoto)

Thinking about it normally, our only choice is to run.

But…

-“I will tell this to you just in case. I don’t really recommend it though…” 

I remember the conversation of Noah-sama.

If Mel-san is gone, I would be in a one vs one against Cain.

Could it be that this is my only chance to persuade him?

“Spirit User-kun, buy time and let’s esca—” (Mel)

“Mel-san, I will distract him, so go to the Sun Temple and bring Abel-san.” (Makoto)

“What?! Don’t tell me you plan on sacrificing yours—” (Mel)

“I don’t.” (Makoto)

Mel-san was startled by what I said, but she reconsidered it after seeing my face.

“Looks like you have a plan.” (Mel)

“A bit.” (Makoto)

“Don’t push yourself, okay? …I will return in half a day.” (Mel)

It is normally a distance that would take 1 day.

“Plenty enough.” (Makoto)

When I say this, I jumped off from the back of the White Dragon-san.

Thanks to the Blue Feather Cloak Ira-sama gave me, I can fly. 

Demon Lord Cain looks at both me and the White Dragon-san.

He was thinking about who to chase, but it looks like he has focused his target on me.

He approached me.

“Dia, ready?” (Makoto)

“Yes, Our King.” (Dia)

Dia appeared by my side.

“To think you would throw away your dragonback yourself. Looks like you don’t treasure your life!” (Cain)

The black armored Demon Lord laughed as if belittling me, and lunged at me. 

I placed an ice barrier, and activated a spell that blocks vision.

“Water Magic: [Blizzard].” (Makoto)

I will eliminate his field of vision first.

The flight of the Blue Feather Cloak isn’t that fast.

Or more like, it is slow.

If we were to do a speed battle, they would catch up to me in an instant.

“Fuhahaha! Pointless struggle!!” (Cain)

The Demon Lord roared, but I ignored him.

I pointed at him and muttered.

“Water Magic: [Ice Block].” (Makoto)

Several giant ice blocks were shot at Cain.

“Argh! How annoying!” (Cain)

The sword of the Demon Lord cuts them away like butter, but some did hit him.

But the damage was negated because of the armor of the Demon Lord.

Even so, it seems like it is aggravating to get smashed by blocks of ice continuously.

“XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX! I(Fire Spirits! Wind Spirits! Blow them away!)” (Cain)

I heard him shouting in Spirit Language.

A giant fire tornado appeared with the Demon Lord in the center.

I felt the heat immediately.

“Hahahahahaha! Your magic doesn’t work on m—” (Cain)

That sneer didn’t last long.

The giant fire tornado slowly thinned like the fire of a candle, and eventually disappeared.

“…”

Because of the armor that was covering his whole body all the way to his head, I can’t see his facial expression, but I can tell that he is confused.

He once again rushed at me, but I hit him with the raging blizzard and the ice blocks. 

“Don’t you understand that this is pointless?!” (Cain)

The Demon Lord shouted and cut away the ice blocks. 

But the next moment, an ice block collided with the armor of Cain.

“XXXXXXXXXX! (Fire Spirits! Wind Spirits!)” (Cain)

Demon Lord Cain shouts in Spirit Language again.

But nothing happened.

Eh? A blank?

“…”

“…”

“D-Don’t look!” (Cain)

Dia and I stared at him with amazed faces, and Demon Lord Cain shouted agitated.

It is just as Dia told me beforehand.

Demon Lord Cain apparently sucks at using Spirits.

◇A few days ago◇

In the Sun Temple.

I was speaking in Spirit Language so that Hero Abel doesn’t hear it.

“Hey, Dia, if Demon Lord Cain attacks us again, will you be able to fight him? -With him being a believer of Noah-sama and all.” (Makoto)

I was a bit worried, so I tried to confirm.

Noah-sama is like the boss of the Spirits.

Then, can a Great Water Spirit go against Cain when he is the Apostle of Noah-sama in this era?

“Fuh! And here I was wondering what you would say. That question is silly, Our King.” (Dia)

“Really?” (Makoto)

Dia giggled in contrast to my worry.

“Spirits hate that kind of violent man.” (Dia)

“Violent?” (Makoto)

“That’s right. His way of speaking, his way of using magic, and his way of using Spirits; they are all coarse. With how he is, Spirits wouldn’t be attached to him.” (Dia)

“Really?” (Makoto)

In my eyes, it looked like Cain was using all Spirits freely aside from water.

But according to Dia, he is not popular.

“Spirits like people who give them attention kindly. Also, Noah-sama is a personage that loves freedom. There’s no need to forcefully listen to the words of someone we don’t like! I serve the person I like.” (Dia)

“I see.” (Makoto)

Noah-sama isn’t bothered by the small details.

Her base stance is ‘do as you wish’.

Looks like that’s the same for her familiars that are the Spirits.

“Demon Lord Cain is questionable as a Spirit User, huh.” (Makoto)

“Yes, I pity the Spirits that abide by him.” (Dia)

If the Great Water Spirit herself says it, that must be the case.

“By the way, what about me?” (Makoto)

“Our King is…skilled.” (Dia)

Dia directed a meaningful gaze at me.

Why are you blushing?

“When I am touched by you, that sweet sensation makes my body tremble and—” (Dia)

“Wait wait.” (Makoto)

It is obvious, but it is not like I touch Dia every time I use Spirit Magic.

I don’t do moves like that of an eroge.

“It was just a metaphor, a metaphor. It means that’s how skilled Our King is.” (Dia)

“That’s great.” (Makoto)

It was that kind of conversation.

◇◇

It has been a few hours since Cain has been deflecting the attacks of Dia.

Our attacks are being nullified, but his attacks aren’t reaching us either.

The stalemate continued.

“Tch! This is endless! Damn it!” (Cain)

Demon Lord Cain was waving around his greatsword.

The black sword attack approached me, but I easily defended myself with an ice barrier.

What haphazard attacks.

He lacks concentration.

Isn’t it about time?

At this rate, the short-tempered Demon Lord might leave.

It should be about time to talk to him.

The attacks of Demon Lord Cain were losing steam.

Looks like his fighting spirit has thinned.

I stopped the blizzard, and stopped smashing him with ice blocks.

“You…have you finally ran out of mana?” (Cain)

The Demon Lord said something that was way off target.

“Water Magic: [Ice Block].” (Makoto)

Giant blocks of ice surround us as if enclosing us.

“Tch!” (Cain)

He clicks his tongue as if annoyed by this.

In the first place, a Spirit User doesn’t run out of mana.

“I wanted to talk to you.” (Makoto)

I opened.

“Pleading for your life? If you spit out the location of the Hero obediently, I have no interest in you, so—” (Cain)

I say this as if cutting off the words of Cain.

“Cainhart Weeloch.” (Makoto)

When I said this, Demon Lord Cain twitched lightly.

“…Why do you…know that name?” (Cain)

Hooked.

I didn’t answer that question and grinned.

          1. Same here
            This is getting difficult and more unpredictable
            Looks like i will have to destroy my shackles😐😐

          2. The daylight saving shenanigans threw me off.
            I wasn’t expecting a chapter after 7:00 (they usually are posted between 6:00 and 7:00 pm my local time) and started washing the dishes when the chapter came.

          3. While in my local time the posts are usually 6:00 -7:00 am
            And it is unpredictable at times. Sleep is my main enemy😕😕

    1. “D-Don’t look!” (Cain)
      Dia and I stared at him with amazed faces, and Demon Lord Cain shouted agitated.
      It is just as Dia told me beforehand.
      –Demon Lord Cain apparently sucks at using Spirits.

      Now I understand why Noah said that Makoto is the best apostle ever. He’s the only one who truly understands the spirit and could use them freely. And finally, we will learn about Cain past and how he meet Noah.

      “By the way, what about me?” (Makoto)
      “Our King is…skilled.” (Dia)
      Dia directed a meaningful gaze at me.
      Why are you blushing?
      “When I am touched by you, that sweet sensation makes my body tremble and—” (Dia)
      “Wait wait.” (Makoto)

      Also the only person who unconsciously doing something lewd his contracted spirit

      –Demon Lord Cain apparently sucks at using Spirits.”
      Lol, I didn’t expect Cain, the Apostle of Noah, to be bad at using Spirits.

      ““Cainhart Weeloch.” (Makoto)
      When I said this, Demon Lord Cain twitched lightly.
      “…Why do you…know that name?” (Cain)
      Hooked.
      I didn’t answer that question and grinned.”
      So, Cainhart Weeloch is the full name of Cain. Very interesting.

      ““When I am touched by you, that sweet sensation makes my body tremble and—” (Dia)
      “Wait wait.” (Makoto)
      It is obvious, but it is not like I touch Dia every time I use Spirit Magic.

      Wait, what the hell did you do to Dia, Makoto ? Also, you do move like that of an eroge. Remember when you synced with Sofia for the first time ? That was extremeley lewd.
      Makoto, you shouldn’t put your hands on another woman ! It will only increase the intensity of the shuraba when you come back to the present.

      1. Behold the power of Hen*ai Protagonist Takatsuki Makoto! He’s a professional gigolo bastard who doing something pervert under the name of Synchronization

        1. “”I have used transformation myself and am running with the setting of being her attendant.
          So I say, but I simply lengthened my bangs to hide my eyes.
          It is a bit of a hentai protagonist kind of style.” ”
          Sauce: chapter 158
          He is indeed a Hen*ai Protagonist !

      2. He’s lucky he never synced with Fuji’s wife. Thank Noah for that RPG option that showed up and he decided against it.

    1. “When I am touched by you, that sweet sensation makes my body tremble and—” (Dia)
      “Wait wait.” (Makoto)
      It is obvious, but it is not like I touch Dia every time I use Spirit Magic.
      I don’t do moves like that of an eroge.

      So it also happens to spirits? So that’s why Dia is so obedient ahhhh.

      Cain is strong but he sucks at using spirits and is impatient. Good thing that spirits can fight one another though they are being forced.

      “Cainhart Weeloch.” (Makoto)
      When I said this, Demon Lord Cain twitched lightly.
      “…Why do you…know that name?” (Cain)
      Hooked.
      I didn’t answer that question and grinned.

      This is an alliance! I call it now, they’re going to team up to kill the Great Demon Lord for tricking Noah in the future and free her after. Senpai acquired!

      1. I would think it would be hard to convince Anna to forgive Cain in order to have him join in fighting Iblis. I mean Cain did kill Anna’s surrogate mother-figure.

        1. I’m not necessarily saying that Anna would allow it. I’m thinking more that Cain and Makoto have a secret agreement for Cain to act like a spy and help the party when they fight Iblis. It wouldn’t need Anna’s consent then but it would make for a great plot twist when it gets revealed to the party.

  1. Thanks for the chapter!

    Oh well, turns out Dia could feels it too huh? Well, Makoto i guess you made a Spirit becomes a human, more and more every day.
    Cain turns out to be someone that flustered pretty easily, huh? I’m sure that this moment would be hillarious if we could see his face xD

    1. Well it is said he’s a short tempered person and how to do it just by makes him feel like it’s annoying to deals with us and at last attack the weak spot like dark past or other secret

  2. “By the way, what about me?” (Makoto)
    “Our King is…skilled.” (Dia)
    Dia directed a meaningful gaze at me.
    Why are you blushing?
    “When I am touched by you, that sweet sensation makes my body tremble and—” (Dia)

    I don’t do moves like that of an eroge.
    “It was just a metaphor, a metaphor. It means that’s how skilled Our King is.” (Dia)

    “That’s great.” (Makoto)

    The metaphor makes me chuckles for a bit.
    Dia unconsciously said how skilled Makoto as a natural gigolo who doesn’t think much about the effect of synchronising to other person.

  3. Here it is. Now they will be come friends and go one a Demon King extermination parade.
    The real question is: is Cainhart Weeloch a girl or not. I think he or she was acting kind of cute.

    1. Not that’s you’ve said it… It does happen. I don’t know about other guys, but if it were me, I don’t think I ever said, “Don’t look!”, with flustered looks on a trivial matter like that. 🤔

      1. Just imagine that you are wrong and it is a dude who did it….
        Cain got his helm stripped by Abel in Labirintos fight chapter

    2. I could see several things happening:
      1. noah added a voice changer to the helmet so cain sounds different
      2. japanese doesn’t always specify gender so that could be what’s happening here, but since I haven’t read the raws I can’t be sure of that.
      3. Noah mentioned cains full name, but totally forgot to mention cain was female or possibly left that as a service to makoto.
      4. if cain is female then she’s definitely ending up in the harem as well, and it may be where we get to see holy maiden anna join the party. of course she wouldn’t be the real holy maiden, but no one else would know that.
      5. if 4 is true, then Abel is really going to dislike her for killing so many people he cares about, but mostly for trying to get with makoto.

      We know that noahs beauty is enough to even charm women so it isn’t impossible for cain to be female, but i feel it kind of unlikely all the same.

      1. I’ve just refreshed my memory of novel, so I will remind you another point, Moon Queen disappeared somewhere with the fall of Iblis. So she probably could tag along somehow. Also Makoto’s Pact is literally “Moon Oracle’s Guardian Knight”, nothing mentioned about it being Furaie exclusive

    3. Cain is a man. When his helmet got knocked off they specifically referred to Cain as male. An extremely pretty male but still a male.

      Well not like being a guy matters in being in Makoto’s harem. After all there is Leo as precedent along with Sakurai >.>

      1. Sakurai and Leo aren’t in his harem though. Never where. I guess certain people would like if they where, but they aren’t. As a reminder, Sakurai HAS his own harem – a very large one at that. Which makes him even less likely to end up in Makoto’s harem.

        Though I certainly don’t know what form Makoto’s harem will ultimately take. It just keeps growing. So in the end, I can’t completely exclude the possibility that could be like that (even though I doubt it). The story isn’t over til its over, and it isn’t over yet.

  4. About the time paradox theory that debated in the previous chaps

    I know this topic is late
    But what if:

    The reason why ira didnt know makoto in the past and only momo and bifronts knows him because if the rpg skill.

    What if in order for them to remember him they need to meet him face to face in the present,

    Its bugging in my mind about the skill makoto have might possess a hidden function of preserving the history by locking the memories if everything related to makoto
    On the time makoto finished his mission in the past, the rpg skill might starting to locked every single memories the people have on makoto either they are mortal or deities and rewriting the history of makoto being part of the heroes party to hide his existence until thousand years later.

    On the time makoto and his classmate got summoned for the first time in this world, his skill is starting to slowly unlocking every sealed memories of everyone and the rewritten history is starting to recreate the real history that happen thousand years ago before rpg skill rewrite the entire history to hide his existence as a irregular

    1. You know what’s bugging my mind as well? Aya’s onee-san’s whereabouts. Where the heck is she? Also, what happened to Mary? She’s not getting any screen time either. I’m starting to miss her.

      1. If the author want to create a big plot twist then the simplest way is reveal that Aya’s onee-san is the time traveler in Demon side.

  5. Dia acting like a bashful maiden. If Sophia saw this she would call Makoto a natural gigolo or flag raiser.

    Makoto blackmailing people into submission since he was born. What a natural demon lord or last boss!

    Rosalia might be hated by spirits too except fire spirits that like fighting. She forcefully teleports spirits to use as armor.

  6. he gonna reveal it? i want to see they r chatting about Noah-sama~ i mean, i want them to fight over their goddess~ “I love Noah-sama More!” kind of fight XD

    1. “Dude, summon Noah-sama please, even if just her illusion. I have few important things to tell her”>>Mako getting all chummy with Noah, a supposedly prick at this era>> Cain gets jelly because his Goddess obviously likes Makoto more>> Cain is either immediately snaps at Makoto while Abel comes(background, start of round 2) /or Noah scolds Cain and tells him to follow Makoto, Cain snaps later.
      …..
      Kinda interested in Moon Queen and Cain relationship though

  7. Cain is now starting to remind me of Doom Gaze from Final Fantasy 6, you just randomly encounter him without warning

  8. Thanks for the uploads as always.

    I dare say I’m one of the few people who can look at a comment section and know that my comments on another series lead that series translator to be a regular reader of this.

    Sads07 is the translator for the series “breakthrough with the forbidden master”

  9. I think Cain is a brat in nature…
    He was one of those people who would like to marry Noah at any expense, maybe Noah told him if he would like to marry her, he should play Knight first… Hahahaha

    1. nah, he probably become a brat like. remember he is Charmed beyond saving due to Noah Charm, so it can’t helped people want to marry her.. and in past chapter it said all Noah Believer/apostle is Crazy Fanatic with exception of Makoto

      1. I can understand your thoughts on it. I can help i was in a similar situation Way way back before that we and 10+ individuals are been charmed by one girl. Just thinking about those times i just face palm

  10. hoho, so is finally it overtun of History.
    will The history change greatly with Noah & Cain become neutral or Change side.
    really remind me of Chrono Trigger, Radiant Historia & Growlanser

  11. So, Makoto has literally seduced Dia with his synchro skill…. Dia of Lewd Water?
    Pffff, Cain-kun, what a pathetic display. Wonder if Noah is prickly because she didn’t have a good man(apostle)….
    Cain allying with Makoto, noticing that his goddess is actually falling for another guy, getting berserk and eventually killed by Annabel. Kinda easy to imagine it moving this way..
    Hm… BTW, Makoto created DeepSea spell, why can’t he create something like Thermal Void Area? He has Dia. A physically freezing zone to bypass magic negation/resistance.

  12. “I don’t do moves like that of an eroge.”?
    The hell you mean? He does moves like an eroge/hentai protagonist all the time. Plus he has used his transform ability to look like a hentai protagonist one time as a disguise. Anyways he’s unknowingly lewding Dia. It seems he forgot what people feel when he syncs with them.

    I guess Cain has always been able to bulldoze most enemies with his spirit magic and equipment and got used to it so now that there is an opponent that his spirit magic doesn’t work on and also knows how to work around his equipment’s effects, he’s getting flustered. Anyways I guess now that Makoto has gotten his attention, he’ll try to persuade him. I don’t think Makoto will ask him to join him in fighting Iblis since there’d be no way Anna would let that happen since Cain killed her surrogate mother-figure. I think Makoto could just convince Cain to not get in their way anymore and become neutral in the war. Cain is already considered a loose cannon by the demons who doesn’t follow their orders so they wouldn’t suspect anything if Cain doesn’t show up to fight when Makoto and Abel begin their offensive. Eh I guess Makoto could also try to team up with Cain to free Noah. They got half a year before they go after Bifrons and Makoto is crazy enough to suggest something like that since he really misses Noah.

  13. Poor Cain, you can’t always be forceful.
    Do it more like the Natural Airheaded Gigolo-kun, Makoto, and every spirit is going to be begging at your feet.

    I swear, if the author pulls another Abel/Ana on us I’ll flip a table.

    I seriously wonder what they’re gonna talk about, maybe Makoto’s gonna say something along the lines “Please tell Noah-sama to be careful of the Demon God, he cannot be trusted.”
    Or something along those lines.

    Cain becoming a member of the party is out of the question, Ana is going to kill him, and she’s going to ditch Makoto if he ever mentions something like that.

    As for Makoto going back go the future, maybe he’s going to master the time spirits, and go to the future step by step.
    Something like going 10 years into the future, waiting 1 year for the spirits to charge up, rinse and repeat.
    Or he’ll go 10 years into the future, form the pact with Noah, rescue her from the underwater temple, ask her to use the time spirits to send him back, or to freeze his body.
    Or if he goes into the future step by step, and since he’s going to age a year per time travel, and since there’s a hard cap at 100 years of life for humans.
    Maybe he’s going to rejuvenate his body like Noah did to the crowd before they sent him into the past.

    Yesterday was a sad day, but Reigokai-sensei needs his rest as well.
    Since no chapter came out, I decided to start with Tsuki… Oh boy, where do I start with this.

    Reigokai, the improvement in translation quality, from sentence structure to punctuation, and most importantly, readability and just being able to understand what the hell is going on is amazing, you’ve really improved during the years, and I am thankful to you for doing this.

  14. Thanks for the chapter. I didn’t expect that Cain would be bad at using Spirits. Looks like Makoto intends to negotiate with him to free Noah. However, even the two of them shouldn’t be strong enough to defeat the Leviathan. Perhaps Makoto intends to use it to take down Cain by leading him to Noah’s prison and abandoning him there?

  15. Alrighty. We’ve properly shocked him into a conversation. Good luck, Takki. You’re better at diplomacy than you know.

    So it turns out that the decisive difference between Cain and Takki was his greatest strength. Harem Power. Cain isn’t appealing enough as a person.
    Did the ice shields work this well against him in the past though? He was fended off surprisingly easily. You’d think his epic weapon would be able to cut through the walls pretty easily.

  16. So he’s going to make the attempt to get through to the fanatic huh? I’ll be impressed if it works. Even so, it’s a bit risky since if Abel sees him colluding with Cain it could alienate him from the hero which would mess up his entire reason for being there. I’m pretty sure the only reason he’s chancing it is because Ira told him he’d need to get Cain on his side first before having any chance of talking to Noa. He’s prioritising his need to see her again that idiot…..

    Also, ara ara Dia.
    You don’t fool anybody else~
    When you think about Makoto, you touch yourself~
    Sing it!

    Thanks for the translation!

      1. I think you missed my point. The issue was never about him being a Noa believer, so much as him being a fanatic in general. Sure if he listened and believed the information, it makes him Makoto’s ally. What I was worried about was whether it would be possible to make him listen at all, or believe a word he said if he did. Fanatics tend to believe their way of believing and methods are the ONLY correct ones and don’t take well to different points of view. I may have been wrong, but it looked like a difficult wall to surmount before I read the next chapter. He might not have been quite the berserk zealot I imagined him to be when I wrote that, but I couldn’t have known that.

  17. thanks for chap
    why do i feel he is a devotion and madness of isaac + reckless fighting maniac of geralt who uses spirit magic?
    that’s hella bad combo.

    hopefully mc can convince him/change him for the better
