WM – Chapter 270: Takatsuki Makoto resolves himself

“Takatsuki Makoto…want to defeat the Great Demon Lord?” (Ira)

What came out from Ira-sama was something unexpected. 

“Defeat…the Great Demon Lord? We were in that state even against a Demon Lord though?” (Makoto)

I actually did intend to go straight to the Great Demon Lord depending on the meeting of the Savior Abel. 

There was also my impatience of wanting to search for a way to go back to the era where Lucy and Sa-san are though. 

But currently…I honestly am not confident about it. 

The Immortal King Bifrons was a fearsome opponent. 

I don’t really think that we can win against the Great Demon Lord that has 9 other subordinate Demon Lords with our current fighting force. 

Ira-sama must have read my mind, she smiled gently. 

“I understand that sentiment, Takatsuki Makoto. But that’s not it. This is the best moment.” (Ira)

“…I don’t understand what—.” (Makoto)

Before I could say ‘what you mean’, Ira-sama’s hand was placed on my cheek.

It is warm. 

“Destiny Miracle: [Resonance].” (Ira)

A pretty voice resonates. 

My body and Ira-sama’s body shone rainbow.  

This is…?

“This reaction is something that only people with Divinity can have. It means that you have the power of a God in your body, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Ira)

“Eh?!” (Makoto)

I have Divinity?

I don’t feel like that at all. 

“I told you, right? If a human were to synchronize with a Goddess, they would normally go mad or be crippled. At the very least, there should be damages to the body or the mind… And yet, I saw no sign of that at all in you, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Ira)

“That’s thanks to the crest of Noah-sama—” (Makoto)

“That’s right, it is the doing of Noah. And the side-effect of the Miracle Magic that Noah casted on you, you now have Divinity in your body, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Ira)

“…Is that okay?” (Makoto)

She has been going side-effect and crippled and a whole lot of bad words. 

“It is okay. It is vexing, but it is as you would expect from the Miracle Magic of Noah. It is containing the Divinity in such a way that it doesn’t cause any bad effects on you at all.” (Ira)

Hohoh.

Noah-sama really doesn’t miss anything. 

“I understand now how I have Divinity. But can we really defeat the Great Demon Lord with that?” (Makoto)

When hearing the words Divinity, it does somewhat sound strong, but I don’t think I have become like Sakurai-kun and Anna-san. 

“Haaah…” (Ira)

Ira-sama shook her head as if saying ‘good grief’. 

“You have Divinity in you, so think of yourself as having Infinite Life and an Infinite Flesh.” (Ira)

Infinite Life?

Infinite Flesh?

That does sound impressive.

“…I can’t really get a proper picture here.” (Makoto)

I tilt my head without getting it clearly. 

“Think of the Invincible Time of Aya-chan as going on indefinitely. Right now you would be able to have a decent battle against the Sun Hero Alex, you know?” (Ira)

“That’s crazy strong!” (Makoto)

The Invincible Time of Sa-san that KOed Olga-san in one hit. 

The Sun Hero Alexander that defeated the Light Hero Sakurai-kun in an instant. 

The same as that?! 

“It can’t be helped that you can’t believe it. The person himself has Divinity inside him without his knowledge after all… Why did Noah do something like this…? Is it to…hide it from the Holy Gods and the Devils…? But that would create the possibility of no one noticing it ever… Did she calculate the fact that I would notice…? There’s no way…” (Ira)

I listened to Ira-sama, who was furrowing her brows, while I looked at my own hands.

I don’t feel like I have become that strong though…

I was bothered about it, so I took out my own Soul Book.

All my Stats have turned into [Unknown].

W-What’s this?! 

“The Soul Book is something to gauge the power of people from the Mortal Realm, so they can’t gauge Divinity.” (Ira)

Ira-sama tells me. 

I-I see. 

Looks like my body has really changed.

“With this…” (Makoto)

I can really defeat the Great Demon Lord…?

Thanks, Noah-sama!

“Of course, there’s also something I have to warn you about.” (Ira)

Ira-sama puts a stop to my joy ride. 

“This state won’t continue forever. A human having Divinity is abnormal to begin with. It should weaken as time goes on.” (Ira)

“I see… And even if I wanted to recharge the Divinity, Ira-sama is already…” (Makoto)

“I can’t descend.” (Ira)

“Got it.” (Makoto)

I understand now what she meant by this being the best timing to fight the Great Demon Lord.

“Can I win…?” (Makoto)

“You must not charge in on your own, okay? At the very least, you should bring the Light Hero Anna with you.” (Ira)

“That’s why you gave me that advice before…” (Makoto)

So that’s why I must not reject Anna-san, huh. 

“I have also recovered the Holy Sword Balmung from the castle of the Demon Lord Bifrons. It was originally the weapon of the Fire Hero. Have Anna hold that, and if you fight together with her with your Divinity, I am sure you will win!” (Ira)

Ira-sama points at me straight. 

I learned about it just now, but it looks like we have obtained a Holy Sword from the Demon Lord Castle. 

Even so, the Holy Sword Balmung…huh.

“It is the Holy Sword that Sa-san broke, right?” (Makoto)

I remember the time in Great Keith. 

It doesn’t give me the impression of being that strong. 

“T-That’s because your comrade is weird! What’s with that Invincible Time?!” (Ira)

“Well, I also think that Skill was a straight up cheat though…” (Makoto)

“A-Anyways! The stars aligned and you now have Divinity. We should use it!” (Ira)

“I see…” (Makoto)

I understand the plan of Ira-sama. 

At that time, an idea came to mind. 

“What would happen if I were…to challenge the Deep Sea Temple in this state?” (Makoto)

“Eh?” (Ira)

Ira-sama opened her eyes wide at what I muttered. 

“What do you think, Ira-sama?” (Makoto)

“I-It is true that there’s the chance that you could clear the Deep Sea Temple with your Divinity, but… Ah! Could it be that that was the aim of Noah?!” (Ira)

Isn’t this a once-in-a-lifetime chance?

The Deep Sea Temple that Demon Lord Cain and I couldn’t even hold a finger against. 

But if it is with the awakened Light Hero Anna-san, maybe…

“H-Hey…Takatsuki Makoto, are you serious? You will not fight the Great Demon Lord…? If we fail here…” (Ira)

Ira-sama grabbed my sleeve with a face on the verge of tears.

Tears in the eyes of an out of this world beauty.

Those eyes are unfair…

Go see Noah-sama or fight the Great Demon Lord.

While I was brooding over this…

[What will you do?]

Challenge the Deep Sea Temple

Challenge the Great Demon Lord

Words floated in front of me. 

RPG Player Skill.

At a spot that’s just in the right place where Ira-sama can’t see.

What should I do…?

It may not be the first time, but it always throws hard choices.

Ira-sama was looking over here like an abandoned puppy. 

So sly. 

The result of thinking about it for a while, I choose Challenge the Great Demon Lord.

“I wouldn’t have known about the Divinity without you telling me, Ira-sama. I will obey your oracle and fight the Great Demon Lord. I will slowly clear the Deep Sea Temple.” (Makoto)

I answer clearly. 

I can’t prioritize my own desire. 

This is a situation that holds the fate of the whole world. 

I thought my decision would make Ira-sama happy, but the Goddess herself was making a dubious expression at me.

“You…what did you do just now?” (Ira)

She threw me a strange question.

“As in?” (Makoto)

“Uhm…hm? Hmm, it is nothing. I thought the future couldn’t be seen for a second there, but…looks like it was my imagination. Right! You are going to fight the Great Demon Lord! That’s a relief…” (Ira)

She immediately changed into a relieved expression, placed a hand on my shoulder, and entrusted her weight onto me.

An incredibly nice smell reached my nose. 

…Ira-sama has a flowery scent to her.

Isn’t the personal space of this Goddess too close?

She must have read my mind, she opened her eyes wide.

“Are you hungry for women…? You have a whole lot of cute girls coming at you, you know?” (Ira)

“I am stalwart.” (Makoto)

“You say that, but I felt your gaze on my chest, you know~.” (Ira)

“That chest that looks like a clear plain?” (Makoto)

“Hah?” (Ira)

Ira-sama lets out a low voice with pressure in it. 

The plushies close to the bed had a glare shine in their eyes. 

They sound their giant scissors. 

I stepped on a landmine. 

“That was a lie. I was entranced by your pretty skin, Ira-sama.” (Makoto)

“Good.” (Ira)

She went ‘Hmph’ and pushed her chest out. 

What’s big is her ego…

No, she is a Goddess, so that must be in her nature. 

Noah-sama is the type that goes ‘I am the cutest’ after all.

While we were having that conversation, the scenery began to blur. 

It is about time to wake up.

There was a lot of information in this talk too. 

I have to arrange my thoughts. 

“Then, I leave it to you, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Ira)

“Yes, Ira-sama.” (Makoto)

And in this way, I received the oracle and request of Ira-sama.

◇◇

Momo’s not around when I wake up. 

We are inside Laberintos, so it is hard to tell the time, but it is most likely past noon.

“I overslept…” (Makoto)

I say this to myself, and head to the underground lake thinking about washing my face.

On the way, the residents invited me telling me they would treat me to food, but I told them I would be getting fish on my own for rehabilitation as well. 

And while at it, I wanted to confirm this Divinity that Ira-sama told me about. 

I was wondering about having people see me, so I went to the back of a waterfall at the underground lake. 

The roaring sound of the water falling resonated at the back of the waterfall. 

When I looked around, I could see a whole lot of Spirits playing around. 

I was thinking about what spell to use, but…

“Makoto-san.” 

I was called.

A voice I am pretty familiar with…the Light Hero Anna-san. 

—The Holy Maiden Anna will confess to Takatsuki Makoto.

Ira-sama’s voice replayed in my head.

As expected of the Destiny Goddess’s clairvoyance.

I don’t think I can avoid this. 

(You get it, don’t you, Takatsuki Makoto?! Give the ok!) (Ira)

Her voice resonated in my head.

The personage that I was talking with just a few moments ago. 

You are watching, Ira-sama? 

This is hard to do to an unbelievable degree. 

(Like, if you are leaving it to me, then please don’t watch.) (Makoto)

(C-Cause you know, I am not sure if you are going to do well!) (Ira)

This Goddess…

Looks like she can’t feel relaxed unless she has every single thing in check.

It is not good to be unable to leave the job to others, you know? 

(S-Shut up! Enough about me, concentrate on Anna in front of you!) (Ira)

Haah…got it. 

I sighed inside my mind.

“T-There’s something I have to talk with you about.” (Anna)

Anna-san says this with a bright red face.

Cute…but that face reminds me of Princess Noel no matter what. 

This girl is going to confess to me…apparently. 

“Y-Yes…?” (Makoto)

I answer slightly nervous.

(Now, hero Takatsuki Makoto! Bring down Anna!) (Ira)

The inside of my head is noisy. 

I can’t concentrate! 

And in this way, the confession event with Ira-sama observing had begun.

    1. So his divinity is something that temporarily dwells on his body? meaning he can’t use it forever? Well, that’s fine then. I’m just hoping that he doesn’t become OP suddenly like other protagonists. Also, Noah-sama calculation is really scary, just how far she could predict the future?

      “Destiny Miracle: [Resonance].” (Ira)

      This is…?
      “This reaction is something that only people with Divinity can have. It means that you have the power of a God in your body, Takatsuki Makoto.” (Ira)

      Aww so Makoto and ira are connected now? Damn dude, you didn’t realize that you already captured her flag huh?

      Rather than anna, you should just push down this goddess instead. I’m sure Noah and Eir approved it ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      What the hell is RPG Player. ? I wonder if the skill is actually sentient or something like that.

      Flat is justice, Makoto. Ira-chan is cute, it is all that matters.

      (Now, hero Takatsuki Makoto! Bring down Anna!) (Ira)
      Ira-chan is just too funny. Definitely one of the best girls.

          1. Neither. I said that the imaginary scenario is a little sweet. The nutritional value is 25 g of sugar per 100 words. Definitely not the cause of your cavities lol. 😆😆😆

      1. “T-That’s because your comrade is weird! What’s with that Invincible Time?!” (Ira)
        “Well, I also think that Skill was a straight up cheat though…” (Makoto)

        Its indeed strange, Just like sa-san skill, just who the hell who bestowed them that kind of skill? I thought its god who bestows skill upon people of the mortal realm but apparently not all of them is know about their skill. Galge player, Action Player, And RPG Player skill is indeed the kind of skill that doesnt use the same concept as another skill in this world. Its like a compilation of a bunch of skills that got thrown together to become one skill. I even think that all of them is superior compared to Sakurai light hero skill. Also, I do think that maybe RPG skill feature does not only give him another world perspective but there’s another hidden function behind it. Maybe Makoto just not yet understand how RPG skill really works thus why he hasn’t unlocked it.

      2. One thing about RPG player is clear, in that it messes with fate… hard. Hard enough to break prophecies and even blind Goddess of Fate Ira. As though RPG Player lets Makoto steer fate in a way Ira cannot understand nor predict.

        There isn’t a combat ability out there that can overturn fate. I think RPG Player in the end is the most OP skill.

  1. [What will you do?]
    Challenge the Deep Sea Temple
    Challenge the Great Demon Lord

    The author has no problem add more plot twist in his story, cause makoto has plot armour (RPG-san) literally plot armourrr😂😂😂

    She immediately changed into a relieved expression, placed a hand on my shoulder, and entrusted her weight onto me.

    An incredibly nice smell reached my nose.
    …Ira-sama has a flowery scent to her.

    Side effects of the RPG-san is( hungry for woman). Woman will heed all over you😂😅

  2. Again, the notification didn’t come, even tho I made sure to turn on the toggle. Thanks for the chapter. I guess it will be hard to be a part of the early gang any more

  3. Oh yeah. That was touched on last chapter too, but…Apparently Takki’s on the level of a demigod right now. That’s convenient. A shame we can’t go for Noah, but it wouldn’t be gentlemanly to sync ‘n sling the nice goddess that gave you this power to begin with. It’s tradition to beat the final boss at least once before going for the secret boss anyway.

    …Maybe he can recharge it with another synchronization somehow? Ira and he clearly get along, so it depends when her ban is lifted, I guess. Let’s just treat this as a lesson in delegation of important duties.
    Oooh, if we did it with Eir in the future through Sophia’s body, we’d probably be able to deal with the Leviathan with even better compatibility. Noah is amazing for putting all this in during the split second of frozen time that one time though. In the midst of an emergency no less.

    Now Anna…well…uh…good luck.

    1. About recharging… I was wondering about that. Ira can’t descend, sure. Makoto was just with her, but not in body. So… what if he tried to synchronize just now? I mean sure he didn’t have anything to do. He’s never had reason to use magic in front of the goddesses, but can he? And can he synchronize?

      I mean he can do things there in the goddess’s realm like eating, so maybe that’s a possibility. I’m even thinking, they have regulations about interfering with the mortal realm, but whatever they do in the god’s realm is okay? So is that a loophole?

  4. So the Divinity will be temporary, or at least that’s what say Ira-chan but because it’s Ira-chan isn’y really reliable. But considering what she said as true then the things I can think are: 1. The appear a way to extend the Divinity or make it permanent. 2. Makoto syncro with other God to get Divinity. 3. With Transform he become a God.

  5. If the RPG player skill hindered the clairvoyance skill of Ira, we can think that this skill comes from the outside world God like from Furi-san.
    Noah might collaborated to the outside god to interfere with the summoning of Makoto and others and randomly choose to setup a rpg skill and that is Makoto. The rpg skill has a set of abilities that Noah is exploring its full potential while observing Makoto. But her only agreement for this skill might be a skill that doesnt stand out but is immune to divinity skill and buff so that she can plan her escape to deep sea temple because she want to smack someone else

  6. They really need title system here. Then Makoto could see his tittle of the “the virgin hero that brings down goddesses” and “the one that should eat the meal in front of him!!” written all by Ira-tan.

  7. Delicious Ira chapter. Even if her chest is like a clear plain~
    Now let’s see how he survives this train-wreck………

    Thanks for the translation!

  8. Thanks for the Chapter (´-﹏-`)

    I imagine makoto saying ” i have the power of god and anime on my side!” When ira told him that lol

  9. That’s surprising that this time Makoto DIDN’T want to go all Leeroy Jenkins and immediately agree to face Iblis.

    Anyways so now he has infinite stats and life? You know what that means: spam the hell out of lifespan draining attacks. And of course the first thing Makoto wants to do once he learned this is try to cheese the Deep Sea Temple. Good thing he decided to pick facing Iblis instead. He’d probably feel unsatisfied as a gamer if he conquered the secret super boss and last dungeon like this.

    Meanwhile if he’s got temporary infinite life then maybe it might last long enough to either sleep for 1000 years or at least last long enough for 100 years to pass and the goddesses regain enough power to cast their time travel spell on him again.

    I don’t know why Makoto is mentioning Ira’s Justice since he previously told Sa-san that he prefers small chests. Ira totally fits his preferences.

    1. Well Bifrons cleaned the floor with them and they won basically thanks to divine help and Bifrons is just a general……..Now imagine how strong is the King.

      1. Yes but IIRC Bifrons was also the strongest of the generals. Also clearly the oldest.

        But… it isn’t like they’d all have the same weaknesses – not to mention the arrogance that created key opportunities. If he’d played that differently, Bifrons should have won. Or I should say the first timeline he lost not understanding how dangerous Abel was until it was too late. This timeline he lost while being well prepared for Abel/Anna, but not understanding how dangerous Makoto was until it was too late. As for the others, no guarantee you get to fight them one-on-one. And yes, Iblis should be much worse. Someone who can make even Bifrons submit. Between Makoto having heard that voice (that sounded like a little girl’s voice to him) and what we’ve come to expect in this story –

        My prediction:
        Iblis is gonna be a loli with a near-god-level fear aura (which would explain the reactions of those who see them). Something like with the taboo monsters, but much stronger. A “taboo loli”. And since it won’t affect Makoto at all, Iblis will want Makoto as a partner (having no one else who can handle it for long).

        1. If I remember correctly the actual Moon Oracle was known as Iblis’s lover …..I don’t know if is really a loli

          1. Well a few things.
            1. I don’t specifically recall that being said, but I’ll assume it was. I don’t remember everything perfectly.
            2. What history has recorded has been demonstrated to be wrong. Such as Abel and Anna being childhood friends rather than one person. That’s a recording of the best they knew. So the Moon Oracle may or may not have truly been Iblis’s lover in reality.
            3. It isn’t mutually exclusive they might be lovers, and my theory of Iblis being a taboo loli.

            My theory *might* be getting shot down soon, but I won’t tell you if so because that would be spoilers. And if it gets confirmed instead – I can’t bask in being in part/completely correct – for some time and for the same reason.

  10. I wonder if the author intended this from the beginning or if he just got tired of the past arc.

    > RPG Player Skill.
    > At a spot that’s just in the right place where Ira-sama can’t see.
    > What should I do…?

    … now his skill is even hiding from Ira. And since it was hiding she got refused when her foresight stops working for a second while the future was changing.

  11. … Awkward. This is like confession scene behind school’s sports prep building but with a whole bunch of audience hiding in the bushes. With popcorns, peanuts, and booze.

  12. i see, truly unexpected move from Noah.
    hmmm, i wonder why they did not bring Cain to beat down Bifron and Friends also Iblis and Friends.

  13. Chemistry between Ira and Makoto is as awesome as always. Only second to Noah

    Dissappointing holy sword will make a reappearance! Will it have a chance to redeem itself? Lol

    Thanks for the chapter

  14. thanks for chap
    something tells me :
    1) his 999 water proficiency may rise
    or
    2) the divinity is never over or slowly changes mc’s body

    i hope noah wants to make him a god so that he’ll be op when he rescues her

  15. I answer clearly.

    I can’t prioritize my own desire.

    This is a situation that holds the fate of the whole world.

    I thought my decision would make Ira-sama happy, but the Goddess herself was making a dubious expression at me.

    “You…what did you do just now?” (Ira)

    She threw me a strange question.

    “As in?” (Makoto)

    “Uhm…hm? Hmm, it is nothing. I thought the future couldn’t be seen for a second there, but…looks like it was my imagination. Right! You are going to fight the Great Demon Lord! That’s a relief…” (Ira)

    This just confirmed that the rpg player skill can interfere with fate LOL.
    Look at the timing, right after Makoto decided to challange the Great Demon Lord, Ira could’nt see the future.

  16. I wonder who created the RPG Player skill. We know that the goddesses created the stronger skills (when it was mentioned that Althena created the Light Hero skill). So, I wonder if the person who created RPG Player is the one pulling the strings behind everything.

  17. RPG Player hold some secrets there. Maybe Noah had a hand in creating it?
    Also I definitely think that [Game Player] skill is supposed to imitate divinity

    Action imitates a god’s body, therefore Sa-san’s muteki jikan/invincible time skill
    Galge imitates a god’s mind reading skill
    RPG maybe imitates mental state or soul from what we’ve seen, and the power to control destiny

    also funfact: Makoto’s [Calm Mind] skill in Japanese is Meikyou Shisui. The state of mind that’s as calm as still water that can reflects images like a mirror (Meikyou: clear mirror; Shisui: still water)
