WM – Chapter 262: Demon Lord Battle 2

TLN: Heya guys, Reigokai here!

Just wanted to tell you guys that I will be moving the sponsored chapter to tomorrow. It will only be for this instance!

Anyways, enjoy the chapter!


◇Anna’s POV◇

I could only watch that strange spectacle absentminded. 

What is that…?

The Demon Lord Castle wasn’t standing in a chasm but on a plain. 

And yet, why is it that the city around the castle has been sunk in water, and the lower part of the Demon Lord Castle has been submerged…?

“Oh, everyone’s looking good!” 

A light sound was made and a small girl appeared. 

It is Momo-chan. 

She has completely mastered Teleport. 

“D-Did Makoto-kun do this?” (Julietta)

“Quite the amusing thing. This was done by the Spirit User-kun, right?” (Mel)

Momo-chan made a wide smile at the question of Julietta-san and the White Dragon-sama.

“It is amazing, isn’t it?! Master Makoto-sama made it look like a river had overflowed, and flooded the Demon Lord Castle! Thanks to that, the monsters of the city have evacuated, and more than half of the demon lord army have gone to fix the river issue.” (Momo)

“““……”””

We were at a loss for words at what Momo-chan said. 

They are saying that they have managed to divide the demon lord army with just the two of them. 

“‘Those who use water as their aid to attack are the stronger ones’…huh. I was questioning whether a water siege tactic would have an effect, but if the aim was to divide the enemy forces, then I can understand.” (Johnny) 

Looks like only Johnny-san was able to calmly analyze the situation. 

He is the only one that’s calm. 

An expert in magic and a master of the blade. 

Moreover, even siege warfare… Johnny-san is also a mysterious person. 

“With this…” (Volkh)

I could tell Volkh-san’s voice had excitement in it. 

I felt the same. 

This time for sure…

“Wait! At the time when we came close to the Demon Lord Castle, we were assaulted by Demon Lord Cain… We must not lower our guard.” (Julietta)

I returned to my senses after Julietta-san said that. 

Right, we were wiped out by that before. 

That black armored Demon Lord is whimsical. 

Who knows when he will appear in this situation. 

“If that’s what you are worried about, then you don’t need to be.” 

A voice resonated, and everyone turned there. 

“Esther-sama?” 

The Destiny Oracle that has come with us from Laberintos. 

The White Dragon-sama objected saying ‘It is dangerous!’, but Esther-sama just said ‘There’s no problem’ and came along. 

She said straight ‘Demon Lord Cain won’t be showing up’.

She apparently could tell with her Clairvoyance. 

“Not only that. The Demon Lord Setekh is also absent. Of course, there’s other powerful Demon Lord underlings, but these two not being present is big, right?” (Esther)

“““Ooooh!”””

We cheered at those words.

W-Wow! 

Is it really okay for things to go this smoothly?

“Uhm…is it really okay to state it that surely?” (Mel)

“W-What’s with that? Are you doubting me, White Dragon-chan?!” (Esther)

“N-No! That’s not it, but…the basics of Clairvoyance is that there’s no 100%, right? Ira-sama herself said this before…” (Mel)

I could hear the whispering talk of Esther-sama and the White Dragon-sama. 

Esther-sama is also a mysterious personage. 

The first time we met her was in the Moon Country’s capital. 

And now she came to Laberintos. 

This should be her second time meeting us…that should be the case, and yet, she is awfully close to Makoto-san.

“Well, just trust me. This information is certain…or more like, that person promised…” (Esther)

“Sorry, what was that last part?” (Mel)

I couldn’t hear a part of the low mutter from Esther-sama.

“N-Nothing! More importantly, where is Takatsuki Makoto?” (Esther)

True, I don’t see Makoto-san. 

“I am here.” 

“Wa?!” (Anna)

I almost fell on my butt from that. 

Someone suddenly appeared by my side from inside the mist. 

No, the mist turned into a person.

“Makoto-san! Please don’t scare me like that!” (Anna)

“Ah, sorry, Anna-san.” (Makoto)

That really gave me a fright. 

Makoto-san laughed without a single shred of guilt. 

He looks fine. 

Even though it has only been a few days, I felt relieved seeing his face.

“That’s quite the peculiar spell you used there, Spirit User-kun. How did you do it?” (Mel)

“I used water magic to Transform my body into mist and moved like that. It isn’t on the level of the Teleport from Momo, but it is pretty useful.” (Makoto)

“You, that’s a movement method that vampires specialize in… There’s no need to use a spell like that, right?” (Esther)

The White Dragon-sama seemed deeply interested and Esther-sama looked baffled. 

“I had nothing to do while we were waiting, so I had Momo teach me. Anyways, quite a lot came. Thank you for your cooperation, Johnny-san.” (Makoto)

“Don’t mind it. Everyone here has the will to fight the Demon Lord… We will charge at your word, Makoto-dono… We entrust our lives to you.” (Johnny)

The air around changes at the words of Johnny-san.

We nodded resolutely.

It is finally the fight against the demon lord army.

Tension runs around the place. 

“Alright. There’s a lot to do before that… Julietta-san, do you have the thing I asked of you?” (Makoto)

“Uhm, Makoto-kun, is this good enough?” (Julietta)

Julietta-san gave Makoto-san something made out of wood. 

That’s…a wooden mask? 

“Ooh, looks cool. Thanks.” (Makoto)

“I think I could have made something better if I had a bit more time though…” (Julietta)

“It is plenty enough. As long as it hides my face.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san puts on the mask that’s carved into the shape of an animal. 

“How is it, Momo, Dia?” (Makoto)

“Yes, looking cool, Master Makoto-sama!” (Momo)

“Aah…you look lovely, Our King.” (Dia)

The two responded in less than a second.

(Eeh…) (Anna)

I honestly see it as a bit weird. 

He looks cooler without a mask…

Are Momo-chan and Dia-chan’s eyes clouded? 

“Uwa, that’s lame. What’s with that, Takatsuki Makoto?” (Esther)

The unfettered voice was from Esther-sama. 

Isn’t that saying too much…?

“Listen here, Ira-sama. We are going to be facing the Demon Lord Bifrons, you know? Then, wouldn’t it be bad if he were to see my face? This is me being considerate with you, Ira-sama.” (Makoto)

“I am Esther! …Ah, that’s true. If that’s the reason, it can’t be helped.” (Esther) 

“Also, isn’t a fox mask cool?” (Makoto)

“I told you it is lame. Also, the ceremonies that use fox masks are for good harvest. That’s under the jurisdiction of Freya-oneesama.” (Esther)

“Aah, jealous, huh.” (Makoto)

“Wrong!” (Esther)

“Don’t kick me! I can see your panties!” (Makoto)

“If you are going to look, cough up cash!” (Esther)

“So unreasonable!” (Makoto)

Esther-sama and Makoto-san are flirting again…

What they were talking about is also something that only the two of them understood. 

That’s not fair. 

“So, you putting on that mask means…the time is now?” (Johnny)

Even Johnny-san was a bit shaken by this as he entered the conversation. 

“No, that’s not it. I was thinking about reducing the numbers of the demon lord army a bit more… It is coming.” (Makoto)

“Spirit User-kun…you should learn to give a bit more detailed explanations…Hm?” (Mel)

The White Dragon-sama seems to have noticed something while she was talking and looked up. 

A number of people were pulled by that and looked up. 

And then, what was reflected in my eyes was…

-A lump of ice the size of a big mountain that had pierced through the clouds had showed up. 

“W-W-W-What is that, Makoto-san?!” (Anna)

“[Comet Fall]. A spell of Our King, Hero.” (Dia)

The one who answered my question while I was flustered was Dia-san. 

S-Spell?! 

This sight that’s as if the world is about to end is the spell of Makoto-san?! 

It was as if the sky itself was falling. 

“What an outrageous size… I have never seen a spell like this…” (Mel)

“Well, that’s no surprise, White Dragon-chan. Comet Fall is a large-scale slaughter spell that’s used for destroying cities. It is one of the spells that the Holy Gods have banned. It is an inhumane spell that turns a whole place into a naked plot of land… Takatsuki Makoto, we will be okay, right?” (Esther)

We were startled at the words of Esther-sama. 

It is true that there’s distance between us and the Demon Lord Castle, but with that size, I feel like the shockwave of the destruction would reach all the way here. 

“Well, just watch. It is far smaller than the one that was about to fall on the Fire Country. If it is on this size, I can control it.” (Makoto)

Saying this with a nonchalant tone, Makoto-san pushed his right arm out to the front. 

“Transform.” (Makoto)

The moment Makoto-san muttered this.

*Pang*

The air turned heavy. 

(I-I can’t…breathe!) (Anna)

Mana that held overpowering pressure to the point that it felt like my breathing would stop was gathering into the right arm of Makoto-san. 

When I look around, I could see a number of the Laberintos fighters have fallen on their butts. 

“[Spirit Arm].” (Makoto)

Makoto-san’s voice resonated and his whole right arm shone blue and transparent-like. 

“You are turning your own arm into a spirit…?” (Mel)

“That’s also a banned technique, but…I will turn a blind-eye.” (Esther)

I somehow managed to hear only the voice of the White Dragon-sama and Esther-sama. 

Mana was stagnating the air around like muddy water. 

I am feeling dizzy…

I somehow manage to maintain my consciousness and not get mana dizzy as I look at what’s in front of my very eyes. 

There’s currently a gigantic lump of ice that’s being called a comet, and it is about to crash. 

The Demon Lord Castle is being crushed like an egg. 

Not long after, the comet itself was breaking. 

“The shockwave is coming! Brace yourselves!” (Johnny)

Everyone made their bodies smaller at the shout of Johnny-san. 

I also follow suit. 

“It is okay, Johnny-san. There’s no shockwave coming.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san laughed lightly and raised his blue shining arm up. 

“Water Magic: [Flowing Stream].” (Makoto)

The next instant, the explosion of the comet spread into the sky. 

““““Eh?””””

Everyone was dumbfounded by this except Esther-sama. 

Even the White Dragon-sama and Johnny-san were dumbstruck. 

A gigantic explosion that covered the whole sky. 

The sky turned bright red and an explosive sound that could break eardrums roared. 

My vision turned pure white, and soon stabilized. 

I noticed that that was because my eyes were closed. 

I take a deep breath and nervously open my eyes. 

(Ah…) (Anna)

I was watching that sight as if I were in a dream. 

The Demon Lord Castle has been crushed. 

An out-of-place refreshing breeze was blowing. 

The sky was clear

This is my first time seeing the blue sky from the ground. 

“Using the explosion shockwave of the comet to blow away the Pitch Black Clouds. Not a bad move.” (Esther)

Contrary to us who were shocked mute, Esther-sama spoke to Makoto-san with her arms crossed.

“It went well. By the way, what’s the forecast for the future, Ira-sama?” (Makoto)

I can’t tell the expression of Makoto-san because of the mask, but he seemed to be having a lot of fun. 

“Don’t talk about it as if it were a weather forecast, Takatsuki Makoto. Hmm…looks like the Pitch Black Clouds have disappeared in a radius of several hundreds of kilometers. It will be more than half a day before they return to normal. Even I pity the Demon Lord here. His city was submerged, his castle was destroyed by a comet, and below the light of the sun that the undead hate the most, they will be attacked by Heroes.” (Esther)

Makoto-san and Esther-sama’s conversation came in one ear and out the other. 

“Then, the preparations are over, so let’s go defeat the Demon Lord, Anna-san.” (Makoto)

“O-Okay…” (Anna)

I could only nod awkwardly. 

…Aren’t you fine on your own, Makoto-san?

      Esther-sama and Makoto-san are flirting again…

      My god every single time, they really had the nerve to flirting when going to face a demon lord. Their affection level already surpasses the other heroine. Good job Ira-chan

      —-A lump of ice the size of a big mountain that had pierced through the clouds had showed up.
      “W-W-W-What is that, Makoto-san?!” (Anna)
      “[Comet Fall]. A spell of Our King, Hero.” (Dia)

      Holy shit, from stoping comet to create a comet and made it drop. Our boy already become a transcended being now.

      *just put a goddamn madara reference
      https://i.makeagif.com/media/4-09-2015/BnO2P_.gif

      1. Makoto’s past flirting can never be known by his future/current harem members. I wonder how’d they react to him unknowingly increasing it like the master gigilo he is.

      2. I like way Makoto just learns a vampire racial ability in his spare time.

        “You should learn to give more detailed explanations” – My head voice for Mel has a British accent at this point.

        I imagine Ira literally covering her eyes and doing the “see no evil” pose. It’s amazing how well her and Makoto go together in such a short time however.

        He basically is fine himself. Anna is like that special Mcguffin that is only needed to beat one boss and has no other use.

        1. I think she is more of a Mercykill dagger. The one that bypasses Demonlord Existential resistance, to finish of the cockroaches while they are otherwise stuck at 1 hp and refuse to die. Even in mingled state. Remember how taboo monsters are unaffected by spells lower then Superior(Monarch for effective use in fact). Same here, but with Saint tier. Divine Tier for Iblis.
          —–
          But it makes me wonder, Sacrificial Spell by Eir should count as Saint or even Divine? 10th seat(angels) is still a seat, even if lowest.
          Btw. In these dynamics of Makoto sacrificing Eir pretty much a constant stream of Highend souls, and probably quite a few Aide/DLs, won’t the Present Water Country become an op existence? He is a big supporter(sponsor)

      3. Their flirting seems to be on a level of a certain mage with no common sense all because their grandpa wanted to see what that mage could do unrestrained.

    1. Moreover, even siege warfare… Johnny-san is also a mysterious person.
      I suspecting that Johnny or one of his parents was a reincarnated japanese or something like that.

      ““Uhm…is it really okay to state it that surely?” (Mel)
      “W-What’s with that? Are you doubting me, White Dragon-chan?!” (Esther)
      “N-No! That’s not it, but…the basics of Clairvoyance is that there’s no 100%, right? Ira-sama herself said this before…” (Mel)”
      Ira-chan being a Ponkotsu is really cute.

      ““Uwa, that’s lame. What’s with that, Takatsuki Makoto?” (Esther)”
      Ira-chan doesn’t hold back at all huh.

      “This should be her second time meeting us…that should be the case, and yet, she is awfully close to Makoto-san.”
      Ira-chan is your greatest obstacle. She is probably the one who gets along with Makoto the most.

      ““Don’t kick me! I can see your panties!” (Makoto)
      “If you are going to look, cough up cash!” (Esther)
      “So unreasonable!” (Makoto)
      Esther-sama and Makoto-san are flirting again…”
      Even Anna thinks that they are flirting… Also, Ira, are you saying that Makoto can look at your panties if he pays you ?

      ““Then, the preparations are over, so let’s go defeat the Demon Lord, Anna-san.” (Makoto)
      “O-Okay…” (Anna)
      I could only nod awkwardly.
      …Aren’t you fine on your own, Makoto-san? ”
      Overpowered. However, what about his lifespan ? Also, I understand why Bifrons was angry at him. He flooded and destroyed his castle after all.

      Anyways, a comet ? Interesting.
      https://i.imgur.com/HTOUGE0.png

      1. If only comets were as beautiful as that, I might die happily. Too bad for the demons, it’s basically Apocalypse for them.

      2. Ira was showing him her panties, remember how during her idol dance she copied Noah while dancing but never showing her panties?
        That is of course if the author himself remembers that…

      3. Payment to see her panties huh, well she is the goddess of commerce after all and poor Mel’s image of Ira is already crumbling before her eyes. That is a beautiful image good sir and I’m slightly ashamed I thought Makoto would stop at just submerging the castle in water

    1. I was thinking in the margins of common sense.
      How stupid can I be to think that Makoto of all people would follow a strategy with common sense in it.
      Now I feel like I’m not even paying attention to the novel for not taking into consideration that Makoto is a bonafide madman.

      1. Jokes still on you, bonafide means you’re licensed or allowed to do something, and Makoto has been just barely dodging that diagnosis, he’s been playing the system all along.

      2. Craziness is the gap between reality and mind. Makoto remakes reality.
        Craziness is doing the same thing & expecting different results. Makoto does not do the expected or the same thing.
        Not the madman. In fact he’s pretty happy.

    1. “I used water magic to Transform my body into mist and moved like that. It isn’t on the level of the Teleport from Momo, but it is pretty useful.” (Makoto)
      I told you guys back then that the author was removing his weaknesses one by one starting from the Mind Accelerator. Maybe he can create water clones too?

      “Uwa, that’s lame. What’s with that, Takatsuki Makoto?” (Esther)
      “Also, isn’t a fox mask cool?” (Makoto)
      “I told you it is lame. Also, the ceremonies that use fox masks are for good harvest. That’s under the jurisdiction of Freya-oneesama.” (Esther)
      They’re flirting again!!! Just get together already and explode as well.

      —-A lump of ice the size of a big mountain that had pierced through the clouds had showed up. 
      “W-W-W-What is that, Makoto-san?!” (Anna)
      “[Comet Fall]. A spell of Our King, Hero.” (Dia)
      Dammit. First making a lake. Now dropping a comet the size of a mountain. Are you sure you can’t beat Iblis on your own Makoto? This guy is stupidly strong. I wonder how much lifespan that took.

      I’ve finished my exams No-Lives so be prepared!! Why is it that a comment was already here just as I received the notification? I’ll regain my top spot!!!

      1. Well, mel chan did say makoto is strong enough to face a demon lord alone, but that’s still far from enough to face the great demon lord

    1. “Uwa, that’s lame. What’s with that, Takatsuki Makoto?” (Esther)

      The unfettered voice was from Esther-sama.
      Isn’t that saying too much…?

      “Listen here, Ira-sama. We are going to be facing the Demon Lord Bifrons, you know? Then, wouldn’t it be bad if he were to see my face? This is me being considerate with you, Ira-sama.” (Makoto)
      “I am Esther! …Ah, that’s true. If that’s the reason, it can’t be helped.” (Esther)
      “Also, isn’t a fox mask cool?” (Makoto)
      “I told you it is lame. Also, the ceremonies that use fox masks are for good harvest. That’s under the jurisdiction of Freya-oneesama.” (Esther)
      “Aah, jealous, huh.” (Makoto)
      “Wrong!” (Esther)
      “Don’t kick me! I can see your panties!” (Makoto)
      “If you are going to look, cough up cash!” (Esther)
      “So unreasonable!” (Makoto)

      Esther-sama and Makoto-san are flirting again…
      What they were talking about is also something that only the two of them understood.
      That’s not fair.

      Ira-Makoto interaction is as playful as ever even though they’re raiding the demon lord castle.

      1. Notice that Makoto is saying “Ira-sama” instead of Esther and Ira-chan is saying Freya-oneesama instead of “Freya-sama. They really match each other. Do they even notice that they are actually flirting to the eyes of others ? Probably not. I can’t wait for someone who tell them if they are a couple.

        Imaginary scenario:
        *Back to the present.*
        Ira: Makoto, you are safe !
        Ira-sama who descended in Esther-san hugged tightly.
        Makoto: Yes, Ira-sama, I am back.
        I suddenly felt cold gazes behind my back.

        Sofia: When did you get close to Ira-sama ? Don’t tell me that you even put your hands on a Goddess ?
        Sofia was speaking as if representing everyone. Lucy, Sa-san, Sofia and Furiae-san were giving cold eyes.

        Makoto: That is not it. We are not close at all !
        Ira: Eh ? We are not close, Makoto ?
        Ira-sama was saying this with tearful eyes. This is bad. I have to say something !
        Makoto: T-that is not it. I mispoke, Ira-sama. We are really close ! You are really important to me.
        Ira: Really !? I am glad.

        She said this as she smiled. That smile made my heart race quite a bit and my cheeks flushed. I felt that I could admire that sight for the rest of the day, but Sofia suddenly spoke with the coldest tone I have ever heard.

        Sofia: So you are really close, huh.
        She was looking at me with emotionless eyes.
        Moreover, Lucy, Sa-san and Furiae-san were looking as if I was trash.
        I felt a scene of carnage was imminent.
        I braced myself and tried to desesperately make up an excuse.

          1. Sofia: So you approached me because of the orders of your Goddess ? Do you not love me ?
            Sofia said this with a sad and tearful expression.
            This is bad. I have to say something.

            Makoto : Sofia. I got close to you because I love you ! I could only think about you in the Dark Era.

            I said this while I hugged and kissed her for one minute.

            When I released her, she had flushed cheeks and she seemed to have hearts in her eyes.

            Sofia: M-Makoto. Let’s make children !

            She said this as she pushed me down. What is happening ? Wait, I accidently Charmed her ! Let’s cancel it ! No, this is bad. I can’t think straight because of the kiss . Damn it ! I can’t desactivate it !

            Makoto: Ira-sama, save me !

          2. Escape by turning into water or mist. It’s getting harder to push Makoto down so the harem has to get creative.

        1. They aren’t even trying to keep it a secret at this point lol I’ll bet somone is gonna call them out on it and they’ll both just be like “eh? Uhhhh…”

  1. Thanks for the chapter!

    Ohh, this is looking bright (no pun intended)! There’s no way it would go wrong, right? Right??
    Ahh i’m saying a flag here xD

    Okay Makoto you once again made another spectacle. You even used two banned magic simultaneously lel. Lucky you Ira-sama is really considerate of you.
    Ah, you definitely dumped the Holy Gods’s work into her, eh, just like Althena-sama said.

    Anyway, who’s the one that Ira-sama mentioned? Could it be Makoto told Ira-sama about him meeting Cain? I’m pretty sure he is, since Goddess can watch you anytime after all so there’s no use in hiding it. Though i really want to see Ira-sama’s expression when Makoto told her that xD

    1. As I recall, she was watching and commenting the whole time he was convincing Cain to come visit the Deep Sea Temple.

  2. No wonder Bifron’s reaction at that time when he found Makoto to be familiar was: “No way, that psychopath ain’t a hero”.
    This is just overkill lmao.

    1. I can just imagine Bifrons climbing out of the rubble yelling obscenities, like “WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU” and shit

      It’s like Doflamingo and Usopp in One Piece: “Everyone else is a problem, but this ONE MAN has me messed up beyond belief”

      1. This is just the konosuba dullahan’s castle moment all over again, this time bifrons doesn’t realize who did it until a thousand years later lmaaoooo

  3. Well, I guess it’s not as bad as a nuke… Still, the goddesses seem to have completely stopped caring about their rules when it comes to Makoto huh. I wonder if that spirit arm conversion thing would work past the barrier in the deep sea labyrinth?

    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. Early bird gets the worm, but actually Piwi isn’t a bird!

      So we’ll spare you the worm punishment this time.

  4. In yesterday’s chapter, I read a comment that said that he hadn’t reached 1k proficiency because they wouldn’t leave that off screen and that an important change would happen then. As I read that I thought ‘hey, maybe he can turn himself into water and be the water itself’ and now he does something like that like it’s nothing and I’m like… Okay, fuck it, I don’t know what he is going to become then.

    1. He’ll probably have to take a step towards the divine to go further. Iblis’ unique skill is the strongest candidate for a catalyst right now.

    2. He might be past it. Before Noah’s tampering with his soul book in early chapters, his proficiency seemed stuck at 99 despite his hard work. But actually it was rising still, just not showing in the soul book. Perhaps now the soul book is capped at 999, but his proficiency itself can go further. Or so I think.

  5. By the end, everyone was like: Why are we even here? As spectators? Dude, just call us when you’re done.
    Makoto just putting in work today.
    Thanks for the chapter

    1. No good. Him and Ira… I mean Ester have entered into their own world with just the two of them. But they don’t seem to realize as much.

      And this when they’re supposed to be hyper-focused on the important mission LOL.

  6. Is it me or did he just dropped several bombs in this chapter? I mean, I’m not talking about the comet at the end but he did called Ira-sama by her real name and mentioned the comet falling on Fire Country. Why hasn’t anyone there picked up on this?

    Thanks for the chapter

    1. I also thought that, it’s honestly a bit weird, specially how no one is talking about he calling her Ira-sama, the only reasonable explanation that I could find is that maybe she is using a power so they don’t pay attention to that type of details.

        1. Ah, right, that happened, and she considered the possibility of the Goddess Ira, but she discarded that thinking it was something different, it’s a reaction a bit logical but at the same time to absurd, so I could accept if it revealed that there are certainly a power that makes their thoughts go in other direction, but considering the previous thing and the how the story is then is plenty possible that there are nothing and this misunderstanding is really that, a simple misunderstanding.

    2. I mean to be fair, the believers of the Holy Gods are lessened and so is their influence. They probably just don’t know her real identity except Mel.

      “…Who is Ira-sama?
      There’s no way it is the Goddess though.”

      This is from the POV of Anna which suggests that people don’t really know about her if the name itself didn’t suggest that she was a goddess.

    3. Also in the last chapter they talked quietly about Noah, although it is also true that it is 1,000 years in the past and Noah has the restriction of believers so maybe it is not so well known.

    4. Well firstly, Mel already knows that Esther is actually Ira. And Mel is the smart one that actually questions things.

      Secondly, even if they know that the goddess can descend it would obviously be a big event. So they would have trouble believing it.

      Thirdly, Makoto often says things that don’t make sense to other people

      Fourthly, everyone is still confused at all the ridiculous things that Makoto has just done

    5. Well… epic flood, human appearing as mist, insanely large ice meteor over head, turning a hand into a spirit, overwhelming mana release that makes it hard (even for Anna) to breathe, and crushing a demon king’s caste, and blowing away all the dark clouds – possibly enabling everyone to see a sky they’ve never seen before.

      …I’d say there was enough to distract them. How many days is it gonna take to even mentally process what they’ve seen here? Makoto doing his best imitation of a god, and no one has noticed – the girl flirting with him in their own private world – is a genuine god.

  7. I think i can be certain that Makoto is a speed run type of a gamer that he makes it looks like an easy game for everyone else until they were dumbstruck

  8. He looks cooler without a mask…
    (Anna-chan, your true feelings will leak.)

    Esther-sama and Makoto-san are flirting again…
    (Yep, in this point they simply can’t resist the impulse to flirt, they love the other so much that i’ts simply impossible not flirt, and I love that ♥)

  9. oooooh. that was really cool. makoto really make a proper preparation huh? i thought he would charge by brute force XD

  10. “Okay, I’ve done my part. Now dig the vampire lord out from under the mountain of ice and hit him with sticks.”

  11. I thought that Abel has the hero skill or a least that Abel was the most suitable considering that he is a man but apparently it does not matter who is the hero.
    Also what happened to keeping her identity as a secret.

    1. Not worth keeping if it’s weaker compared to his Anna form. If they want to defeat demon lords and Iblis, going all out is the wise choice.

      1. Being in her Anna form has nothing to do with strength. It’s just Anna either consciously or subconsciously choosing to take her Anna form because she’s fallen for Makoto.

        1. Except she literally said this on chapter 245,

          “When I am using magic, it is easier in my Heaven Winged Folk form.” (Anna)

          “The Heaven Winged Folk are a race that excel in magic. They wouldn’t fall behind demons.” (Mel)

          There is actual benefit in using the female form so in fighting Bifrons, you definitely want to use all of your abilities and go all out. Of course the bigger reason is that she loves Makoto but in this scenario where they are going to fight a demon lord, she might have considered the possibility that their lives are on the line and keeping it a secret to others thereby being relatively weaker wouldn’t do much good if they die in the end wouldn’t it?

      2. They never said that it was the reason why she is using Anna form it mostly because she is in love with Makoto and obviously being a man is bad if she is trying to get close to him.

  12. I don’t get slaugther spells… even sakurai’s attacks can level a city.

    Also Makoto dropped a “nuclear bomb”

    It is considered a tactic in todays world. Well not on cities but on strategic locations…

    The birth of Demon Lord Makoto… wait

    1. holy shit he can turn into mist now, and seems like he’s calling esther ‘ira’ nonchalantly with so many people around, even though it might be in whisper but still…

      Thanks for the chap.

  13. Makoto can now turn into mist to travel like a vampire. Somehow he still insists he’s human…

    I can see why he would want to hide his identity from Bifrons. Given what he just did, Future Bifrons would be super pissed if he realized Makoto is the same guy who wrecked his castle in the past.

    Also uh is nobody there gonna comment how Makoto is referring to Esther as Ira-sama and Ira even starts talking about Freya-oneesama? Or how Makoto is talking about a country that doesn’t exist yet that’s gonna have a comet dropped on it? OK sure everybody is probably too shocked to pay attention right now but what about after everything has calmed down? They might start to wonder what Makoto was talking about. Even if Ira isn’t really known well in this era, Julietta is there as the Wood Hero so she should recognize the name Freya as the goddess she’s the hero of and thus should realize that Ira must also be a goddess since she’s referring to Freya as her sister.

    Meanwhile Ira and Makoto continue to flirt. Also apparently Ira is fine with Makoto seeing her panties if she gets paid. Just get together and explode already you bakouple.

    Oh I thought that Makoto would use the water from the lake to use Deep Sea and crush everything. I didn’t expect he’d pull a Sephiroth and drop a comet instead. I guess he really wanted to try that ever since he saw it in the Fire Country.

    …Are the heroes even needed?

    1. I think that technique works better than deep sea with the undead: crushing everything with a meteor and clearing the sky! He is so cool!

  14. Yea i if i where them my thought will be the same … at this rate do you really needed us? lol

    Ira is the best !! I really love her abd hope after makoto back to current era she will descendent and stay with makoto forecer

  15. Thank you very much for the chapter.

    “…Aren’t you fine on your own, Makoto-san?”

    Anna is just there to grind experience for the Great Demon Lord Iblis.

  16. I’m not sure, but are Mel, Momo, and Anna in his party? I can’t believe the goddess doesn’t mind him seeing her panties. There would be a scandal on Olympus. Since her father has had relations on the planet, has any goddess ever made out with a human? Makoto could be the first to impregnate one. That would truly be something. Does his party member stats increase when he does stunts like that? Thanks for the chapter, Reigokai.

  17. A thought occurred to me. Why use the flood to draw the demon lord’s subordinates away if he was going to drop a mountain on them? That first action served more to spare enemy casualties.

    1. Well, the attack was targeted at the castle. It most likely wasn’t a comet that could hit the whole city around the castle.

      The shockwave that came after might have dealt damage, but Makoto instead took that shockwave and spread it to skies to clear up the clouds.

      So yeah, the strongest aoe would have been the shockwave from the impact which he didn’t utilize on the land but skies. Many monsters around the city might have survived, with them being resilient undead and all.

      1. Undead specifically would have had the sun to deal with after the initial blast. Fair point for other monsters, I guess? Any undead with a “can’t cross running water” weakness is plus-ultra hosed.

  18. Makoto and Ira is striking me as a sibling type relationship. Makoto is starting to encroach on divinity. Their relationship feels a lot more like Noah and Althena.

  19. God damn Makoto that was insane, were there several strategic mages of this level.in the past or is Makoto abnormal even among them I wonder. Man Ira and Makoto aren’t even trying to hide her identity and there relationship at this point, I wonder how many people are gonna catch on after they get over the shock of this incident and have defeated Bifron. At the very least most people should have the image of Makoto and Ira being a couple at this point, it would be amazing and hilarious if Jonny starts giving the girls advice on their relationship with Makoto including Ira.

    1. Ice comet go brrrr. Hits the castle and krrrrrr. Steam and water molecules go wooosh. Redirect all of that using water magic. Should be possible as the shockwave is made of H2O from the ice comet and the surrounding water from his artificial lake.

  20. ….so much tasty info.
    Makoto getting his own Meteor(Comet), him freely using a Mist Transformation(!!! Dude gonna replicate Spirit King battle form, ain’t he!?)
    Ira-chan ok with flashing for cash?! Jailbait Goddess??
    Also, with Makoto as he is now can’t he make an orbital laser? He got Sun magic, free water control(1000+profi) at level of Undine herself, and destiny magic as targeting sub-system

  21. Thanks for the chapter.
    Ira said that everything is gonna be alright, so
    IT CAN ONLY GO WRONG FROM NOW ON !

  22. Thanks for the chapter! As usual, Makoto is casually throwing common sense out of the window. Can’t wait for the time when he faces and takes down an army of 1 million on his own.

  23. I can imagine Bifrons committing suicide at the thought of the certain madman finding him wherever he goes, flooding his home and throwing comets and him, all the while flirting with his ponkotsu goddess or going *puff* at the sight of danger.

  24. Thanks for the chapter~!

    And goddamn, he just nonchalantly dropped a meteor after flirting. If Bifrons didn’t get the damage for that then i can only guess that the Demon Kings were +99% of all resistance except holy.

    Also, with the mist magic, Makoto finally and slowly returned to his logia status after he can’t transform into spirit king anymore

  25. I get it now. I thought common sense-chan died quietly in her sleep without anyone noticing, but I was wrong. She was already weak, frail and bedridden after all she had suffered. Then after Dia manifested, you decided the time had come to sneak into her room and smother her to death in her sleep with her pillow. The murder…….was you! Takatsuki Makoto!!!!
    *points dramatically Conan style*

    Yeah, since he named Dia it feels like any limits Makoto had have been abandoned. Turning to mist? Just learned it after seeing Momo do it and trying it for a few hours. Covering the entire forest with mist? No problem. Flooding the castle? Easy. Lets drop a freaking comet on their heads while we’re here, cause why not? Let focus the shockwave towards the sky to clear the clouds while we’re at it. This demon lord slaying biz is a snap!
    Ridiculous.

    Thanks for the translation!

  26. A wooden mask! Time to get our Chunni on.

    Yeah, I guess that’s a pretty good start. No way a mere comet could stop a Demon Lord, but the collateral might be pretty good for the mooks and minibosses. I…wonder if this is where the Snake church got their idea? Or is it that Takki got the idea from the Snake church?
    ….Did they get their ideas from each other?

    I gotta say, Johnny has had hints of being a reincarnated otherworlder, and this chapter is more support for it, isn’t it? If he’s using a katana…could he be from an older era? Considering he’s an elf, he could’ve come from that long ago.

  27. thanks for chap
    lol he probably overkilled anyone who had ideas of fighting him.

    yea abel,he can but then your picture book will be way off track so he needs to set it right

  28. Oh, he didn’t use his spirit arm before huh.
    Also, damn… I guess the mask is so that he will stay mystical and not become the focus of the people. Abel winning did make people believe in the goddesses and give them more juice over the world. Although, Makoto could just lie and manipulate the populace into the same result probably. Not sure if he can win against the GDL with only water, but if he goes Full Spirit King Mode, then all bets are probably off. But that would make him go berserk probably and then just flood the world with a deluge

  29. He can throw out the comet now, slowly regaining his previous spirit king powers without actually transforming into one

    Also, definitely a logia now
