WM – Chapter 276: The Light Hero Anna bears witness to it

◇Light Hero Anna’s POV◇

“Oi, Spirit User-kun! What are you saying?!” (Mel)

“Makoto-dono, this is reckless. You will just die pointlessly.” (Johnny)

“Master Makoto-sama…please stop!” (Momo)

Helemerck-sama and the others are flustered. 

The three are obviously trying to stop Makoto-san.

At that moment…

“[Clear Mind].” 

I heard a low mutter. 

“Makoto-sa—” (Anna)

I was about to speak to him, but then I noticed…

The air was…as cold as midwinter. 

My breath was white. 

When I look around, I could see that the feet of the other three have stopped, and they are dumbfounded. 

That was the same for me. 

Makoto-san had clearly changed.

Just like the time when he fought Demon Lord Bifrons, he changed into something else.

“Now then, Anna-san, will you come with me?” (Makoto)

Makoto-san had turned around, and he had a smile that looked as if it were just plastered there. 

But his eyes were not smiling. 

The depths of his eyes looking at me were shining slightly rainbow. 

“…..”

I was overpowered by the state of Makoto-san, and couldn’t respond.

“Our King, are you going to depart to the front?” 

“Finally.” 

“I was tired of waiting.” 

Blue skinned beauties appear as if surrounding Makoto-san. 

…Great Water Spirits, Undines. 

And this many at that. 

It isn’t only Dia-san who is always with him.

More than ten Undines were surrounding Makoto-san. 

I think the mana of an Undine surpasses that of the White Dragon-sama and is even comparable to that of a Demon Lord.

“Anna-san?” (Makoto)

“Y-Yes! Got it…Makoto-san.” (Anna)

While I was overwhelmed by the mana of the Undines, I nodded lightly and took the hand of Makoto-san.

“M-Me too!” (Momo)

Momo-chan hurriedly says.

“Sorry, Momo. The spell I am going to be using will be hitting everyone, so I can’t bring you with me.” (Makoto)

“N-No way…!” (Momo)

Momo-chan raised her voice bitterly. 

I felt something off from the words of Makoto-san.

“Then, what will Anna-dono do?” (Johnny)

Johnny-san asked.

That’s right. If it is as Makoto-san said, I would be caught up in it too since I would be going with him.

“Anna-san, please protect your own body with the Light Hero Skill. If it is the Light Hero Skill, my Spirit Magic won’t work.” (Makoto)

“G-Got it…” (Anna)

Makoto-san easily said it would be hitting me too.

But…if it were the usual Makoto-san, he wouldn’t say something like that.

The current Makoto-san is a bit…scary. 

“Oi, Spirit User-kun, they have noticed us.” (Mel)

The White Dragon-sama pointed at the demon lord army. 

A group that seems to be like the advance guard of the demon lord army were heading this way. 

It can’t be helped that they would notice us. 

The overwhelming amount of mana from the Undines. 

No matter how far you are, you would notice it. 

“Mel-san, bring Momo and Johnny-san as far as possible and take cover.” (Makoto)

“…Don’t go dying, Spirit User-kun.” (Mel)

Saying this, the White Dragon-sama had Momo-chan and Johnny-san ride her back, and separated from us. 

Even in that time, the demon lord army was trying to surround us. 

Some of the monsters were trying to chase after the White Dragon-sama.

I was a bit worried, but I am sure the White Dragon-sama will be fine. 

The problem is us. 

“Anna-san, please bring us around there with your flying magic.” (Makoto)

“…..!” (Anna)

I looked at the direction Makoto-san pointed at, and I was shocked.

It was…the center of the demon lord army

You are telling me to go to the very center where a million enemies are gathered at?

I am impressed you can say that so nonchalantly! 

The hill we are at is about to be surrounded by the demon lord army. 

But no one is approaching us. 

They might be scared of the mana from the Undines Makoto-san called. 

But there’s no knowing when they will attack us. 

“Anna-san?” (Makoto)

Makoto-san was making a surprised face as if saying ‘what’s the matter?’ and it annoyed me. 

(Geez! This person really is so…selfish!) (Anna)

He looks like a cautious person, but when the time comes, he would lunge into danger as if nothing. 

And then, he would be on the verge of death, worrying everyone around him! 

He is so prone to danger I just can’t watch. 

That’s why I must be by his side. 

“Makoto-san, I need the sunlight to use the Light Hero Skill. Can I ask this of you?” (Anna)

I point this out. 

I myself can’t do anything about this. 

“Aah, right.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san says something to the Undines. 

The Pitch Black Clouds clear and a blue sky spreads. 

(The spell of the Great Demon Lord, the Pitch Black Clouds, was cleared this easily…) (Anna)

He really is one shocking person. 

I was bathed in the light of the sun, and I could feel power welling inside of me. 

The light changes into aura. 

And my heart was calming.

This is also the effect of the Light Hero Skill.

(Compared to Makoto-san, I am not calm at all though.) (Anna)

Even now, the beating of my heart is noisy. 

But my body has stopped trembling. 

The ones panicking are the demon lord army. 

They must be really surprised from how sudden the Pitch Black Clouds were cleared.

Their formation crumbled, and I could hear a big ruckus. 

They should have noticed that we are the ones who caused this abnormality. 

Even so, the demon lord army isn’t charging here. 

The mana of the Undines must be quite scary. 

“Anna-san, let’s go.” (Makoto)

“Yes, Makoto-san.” (Anna)

I grab the hand of Makoto-san, and spread my wings. 

We float gently into the air. 

Just like that, we head to the center of the demon lord army. 

◇◇

“You bastards, identify yourselves!” 

A demon that seems like a leader of the demon lord army shouts this. 

“Stop!! If you approach any further, I will cut you down!” 

There’s even those who would lunge at us. 

““GUOOOOOOOH!””

The monsters were grouping up and charging at us. 

The demon lord army was attacking us endlessly while we were advancing slowly. 

Dizzying numbers. 

But not a single one could even touch us. 

“Saint Rank Magic: [Ice Isolation].” (Makoto)

The barrier magic that Makoto-san created with the Undines. 

At first it was only a small round barrier. 

Yet it was slowly expanding. 

Right now it is a barrier that could easily have a village in it. 

All the ones who enter this barrier would have their whole body covered in snow and frozen. 

The only exceptions are us. 

I am protecting myself with the Light Hero Skill.

So this is the spell that Makoto-san said would drag everyone around…

“Die, Hero!!” 

A demon clad in dense miasma charged here. 

I am sure it must be a famous demon. 

I ready my sword to confront it.

The blade of the demon’s magic sword was going to reach us in around 2 seconds. 

I clad the sword I had in my right hand with light aura. 

If I swing this, I should be able to cut off its head easily. 

But that moment didn’t come. 

Even this demon that I thought was powerful had frozen just a few steps before reaching us. 

I let out a short sigh, and that breath sparkled. 

A world of intense cold. 

The air is scarily cold. 

If I didn’t have the Light Hero Skill, I wouldn’t be able to stand. 

I would like to move my body if possible. 

But I was free.

“Makoto-san, I have nothing to do.” (Anna)

“Your turn will be coming, Anna-san.” (Makoto)

Different from me who had my tension completely taken away, Makoto-san’s expression was serious.

But not a single one from the demon lord army has been able to reach my sword’s range. 

“Can’t you defeat them all by yourself, Makoto-san?” (Anna)

I say this and my tension lessened a bit. 

The barrier of Makoto-san was dyeing everything white as far as the eye can see. 

A silver world. 

It is beautiful, but…it is a world of death that freezes anyone that invades it.

Does he plan on holding the million army here like this?

Makoto-san really is out of this world….

It was at the moment I was thinking this…

“Anna-san, here they come.” (Makoto)

The words of Makoto-san bring me back to my senses. 

A presence that is clearly different from the demons of before. 

Dense miasma. 

Makoto-san was looking at the sky. 

When I looked there, there were a number of shadows looking down at us. 

“Are you the Light Hero Abel-kun that that personage spoke of? So you were such a cute girl.” 

A cheerful voice that doesn’t match this moment. 

That woman was smiling elegantly as if the inside of Makoto-san’s barrier was no problem at all. 

Bone-chilling beauty and ruby-like red eyes. 

And at her back, there’s pitch black wings. 

At a glance, I thought she was a heaven winged folk like me, but that malicious aura around her was telling me she was clearly something else. 

“Look closely, Erinyes. That’s a heaven winged folk woman. The Light Hero Abel is supposed to be a man, right?” 

The man that answered the woman called Erinyes was a man that held beauty that didn’t lose to hers. 

Wearing clothes like those of a noble, and an elegant bearing. 

And yet, when I look at that figure of his, I could feel disgust that made me frown.

“But I feel the Divine Protection of Althena from her. There’s no doubt she is the Light Hero.” (Erinyes)

“But…that would mean the prediction of that personage was incorrect.” 

“It doesn’t matter whichever. We just have to kill them and confirm. Let’s do this quickly. This place is so cold it is unbearable.” 

The one who intruded in their conversation was an old man with a bend back. 

His voice is hard to pick, and every time he spoke, there would be the noise of his teeth clattering. 

And, even when he is an old man, the miasma covering his body was the one that had the stronger thirst for blood amongst the 3.

“The great Insect King is feeling cold at a mere spell of a human? Don’t you feel pathetic for that?” 

“Shut up, Fiend Brat. In the first place, look at that. Those are Undines which I haven’t seen in several thousands of years. Why is something like that obeying a mere human?” 

“That certainly is strange. The Apostle of the Spirit’s Goddess should be Cain-dono.” 

“Now that you mention it, I haven’t seen Cain-chan lately~. Is he floundering about somewhere?” (Erinyes)

They continued speaking without even paying us any heed. 

I can’t enter their conversation at all. 

Just 3 demons. 

Yet each and every one of them has an overpowering presence that is on the same level as Bifrons or even stronger than that. 

Erinyes.

The demon called the Insect King.

Could it be that…they are…

At that moment, a big sound reverberated. 

When I turn there…

(S-Since when…?!) (Anna)

A humanoid monster that was even bigger than the White Dragon-sama, and a four-legged monster that was even bigger than that. 

No, those are not monsters…

That malicious aura around them…is even bigger than that of the 3 in the sky. 

A giant person and a giant beast seemed to be conversing. 

I couldn’t understand what they were saying. 

“Zagan-kun and Goliath-kun, hello~.” (Erinyes)

The black winged woman waved her hand with a light tone. 

Hearing those names, my body stiffened. 

The names of the ones ruling this world.

There’s no way I would mistake those names. 

“Hooh, there’s 5 Demon Lords, huh…” (Makoto)

I could hear Makoto-san mutter this. 

I felt like I was going to faint when I heard that. 

Please let this be a mistake. 

But I myself was denying this. 

The Fallen Angel King, Erinyes.

Insect King, Valac.

Fiend King, Barbatos. 

Giant King, Goliath. 

Beast King, Zagan.

The 9 Demon Lords that rule this world.

Half of them have gathered before our very eyes.

    1. I don’t have any clue about what Makoto might do at this point.
      Does he plan ahead or just goes with the flow?
      I’m seriously amazed by the author being able to make the novel better and better.
      You really picked a winner Reigokai-sama

      1. I just came up with something good!!!
        Makoto is going to freeze the Demon Lords but they are way to powerful to just die because of getting frozen, so makoto is going to proceed to use the sacrifice technique on each one of them with a smiling face (like a psychopath) and everyone Ana included are going to be obviously terrified of his inhumanity.
        Something along those line would be my perfect scenario.

        1. That’s… Plausible? I kind of doubt it though. Anna-(Abel-kun? Are you there? Where are you keeping Abel!?)-san is probably gonna kill them one by one with the light hero skill… I think?

          If it’s makoto it’s definitely possible… Oh my.

          1. The light hero skill can only be used once on a fight (unless I got it wrong) so maybe Anna-Abel can brake them after being frozen? But it would have more impact if Macoto does it with smiling face

          2. Scary.

            Light hero skill aura can be replenished with light though? If she uses the trump card it’ll be different though. She’ll definitely pass out or something like saku-kun (present hero/?)

            Also Annabel… …it’s like that name of the doll right?

          3. That’s only with the upgraded version Sakurai has
            The one Anna Abel has can only load sun powa onto the blade once for a single attack or maybe it was for a couple of seconds not really sure but something along those lines 🤔

          4. Saku-kun is op. (In sunlight)

            I want justice!!!

            I wonder how makoto will be going back to the present-present though? Will the memories transfer? Is it history already? Will our great sage be the little girl that she is? Is Annabel still alive? (Ah she probably is…)

            We’re catching up to the latest releases of the raw… Author please power up?

          5. How many chapters are left?
            And I think makoto is going to freeze himself in what will become Momo-chan’s house (the ice like cristal house with a coffin in it) and might get some help from the time spirit

          6. I doubt that one..? That’s probably just her bed. Though there’s a slightly high possibility with your theory.

            Since the girls in the present-present is still in the previous chapters.

            Though memory transfer is also a thing.

      2. Remember this from a prev time when Momo was lecturing Sakurai in the Future/present
        “The Light hero should at least be able to take down a million enemies by itself”
        That is when Makoto broke an army of thousands I believe, thing is, the Ligtt hero skill is one truly op, remember not only that but that the outdated one, in possession of Anna can still break equipment like Cain armor which is the same material as Makoto dagger, and not only that but being able to increase the power via things like the magnifying len trick Makoto used on Sakurai too, dunno what he will do, but Anna is clearly vital and strong enough for the task, makes me feel bad of Mel, Momo and Jhony tho, they haven’t had time to shine properly

        1. I think Momo said one hundred thousand by himself and there might be some discrepancies because he hasn’t truly awaken (the fearless leader he was supposed to be) because of Makoto’s interference.

      3. The Light Hero skill can be used as many times as the user wants. It’s only limited by how much light has been charged into it and how much of it the user decides to use per attack. The only difference between the original and Sakurai’s upgraded version is just how much power it releases.

      4. I can imagine the water goddess wondering why she suddenly started getting high level sacrifices from someone she doesn’t know

      5. I think he didn’t need that sacrificial technique for this occasion since now he had Divinity and with that, he’s able to use summon undine endlessly, as long as his Divinity didn’t fade away yet. I think in this time he probably act like a `support` and let Anna get the last hit.

        After all, he seems like want to set up a stage for the Light Hero…

    1. “More than ten Undines were surrounding Makoto-san.
      I think the mana of an Undine surpasses that of the White Dragon-sama and is even comparable to that of a Demon Lord.”
      Time to kill the Demons !

      “The current Makoto-san is a bit…scary. ”
      He IS scary. Even Bifrons was scared of him.

      ““Aah, right.” (Makoto)
      Makoto-san says something to the Undines.
      The Pitch Black Clouds clear and a blue sky spreads.
      (The spell of the Great Demon Lord, the Pitch Black Clouds, was cleared this easily…) (Anna)
      He really is one shocking person. ”
      He can now easily clear up the clouds. He has grown so much.

      ““That certainly is strange. The Apostle of the Spirit’s Goddess should be Cain-dono.” ”
      Does that mean that Noah rules over Spirits ?

      “The 9 Demon Lords that rule this world.
      Half of them have gathered before our very eyes. ”
      https://i.imgur.com/lN51IxT.png

      1. All The Titans rule over spirits but Noah is currently the only titan not locked in Tartarus (and the only one that can have a believer/apostle in the mortal realm) so yes until the other Titans are released Noah rule all the spirits

      2. @Felipe I think Noah is more than just the only currently free Titan, but like the Titan’s princess or something? At least that’s the vibe I got way back when with the Old Man Earth Titan Makoto and Co freed, so it would make sense for Noah to rule the spirits

      3. @axisl I forget exactly, but even if that were true, doesn’t change the fact that she seems more than “just” the only free titan

      1. In Makoto’s mind:
        Makoto: Ira-sama ! Ira-sama ! 5 Demon Lords ! There are 5 Demon Lords in front of us. Now, I can participate in a legendary fight and witness it until the end !
        Isn’t that great ?

        Ira: What is great ? You seriously have some screw looses in your head. Prepare yourself for an extended sermon !

      2. No… not right now – Anna only heard him say “Clear Mind” but he went 100%. He’s completely without emotion and that’s why he became so scary. Rather you’re supposed to infer 100% from the change in Makoto, and because this is what he does when he needs to handle a truly crazy amount of mana without losing control. This is the thing that freaked out even Bifrons – an undead over 1,000,000 years old who’s seen it all (or so he thought).

        As a result, he truly cannot feel fear at the current time …or anything else.

    1. After reading this, it feels like Makoto has stepped into a hornets nest with liquid nitrogen. He’ s following history, he is going to mess up that million plus. Demon Lord’s need to duck and cover.

      1. The million were supposed to make it into the West Continent, and Highland’s capitol of Symphonia was to be founded where they were defeated. They’re still in the Demon continent.

  1. Imaginary scenario: Ira’s revenge ?
    Part 2, indirect kiss.

    Ira’s POV, Ira’s room.
    Ira: Fufufu, everything is perfect now. I may have failed last time, but now there’s no way I can possibly lose against you ! I have studied every shoujo manga in order to seduce you.

    At the end of the day, you will be head over heels for me. Then, I will steal you away from Noah and you will pamper me a whole lot. Headpats, cuddle, hand holding.
    I will never miss you again because you will always be at my side. We will need to share things as we will live together, so buying furniture together is a matter of course. Hehehe.

    W-Wait, w-we are not newlyweds ! B-But, if he begs me to marry him, t-then, I wouldn’t mind it…
    I cracked up a smile while I was thinking this.

    Makoto: Ira, I am here. So why did you call me ?
    Ira: M-Makoto, you are here ? G-Good. I called you today to share a parfait with you.

    I snapped my fingers and two cups of parfait with spoons appeared.

    Ira: Let’s dig in !
    Makoto: Alright, now let’s see how it tastes… Wow, it really taste good !
    Ira: Isn’t it ?

    Fufufu, he let his guard down. I can see that you have a bit of cream on your cheeks, so I will not miss this opportunity to attack you !

    But before I could do that, Makoto did something unexpected.

    Makoto: Ira, you have a bit cream on your cheek. Here.

    Makoto used his fingers to take away the cream my cheek and ate it.

    When he did that, I felt my face turning beet-red.
    Ira: M-Makoto, w-what do you think you are doing to a Goddess ?
    (I-It’s something we should have done on our second date. Y-You are going too fast… )(mumbling)
    Makoto : Did I do something wrong ? By the way, I couldn’t hear the last part of what you were saying.
    Ira: Y-You dummy !
    Makoto: EEEh? I-I am innocent !

    How shameless ! How dare he do that to me. Kuh, I can’t let me take the initiative !
    Let’s counterattack ! I will strike him down with my cuteness !

    I pulled his sleeve and I said with a cute voice and a tearful face:
    Ira: Makoto onii-chan, could you give me a a bite of your parfait ?
    Makoto: Eh ? Umh, o-okay… H-Here.
    Ira: Aah~
    Hehehe. What you think of that, Makoto ? Did you get how cute I was ?
    (Cute, but did I just give her an indirect kiss ? Well, no matter. She is a Goddess, so she probably won’t mind it.) (Makoto)
    I-Indirect kiss ? AAAAAAAHHHHHH !!! What have I done ? I-I just give him an indirect kiss !
    I felt my cheeks flushing and my heart beat at an abnormal rate.
    Makoto: What is wrong ? Ah, was it not enough ?
    Ira: W-Wait, my heart is not-
    Makoto: Here
    A-An indirect kiss again. Please stop. I will die from shame.
    Ira: N-No…
    Makoto: Another one.
    I-I ate another portion. I-Idiot, stop it ! I began crying.
    Ira: P-Please-
    Makoto: Another serving.
    Ira: Onii-chan, please stop-
    I accidently said something weird.
    Makoto: ? But it is the last one. Here.
    I ate the last portion of his parfait, but I am currently embarassed to death. H-How many indirect kisses did we exchange ?
    Makoto: How was it ? Ira ?
    Ira: I-Idiot…
    Makoto: Eh ?
    Ira: Onii-chan, you idioooot !!!!!!!
    I ran away from him with tears in my eyes.

    1. Ready your imaginary scenario has become something I anticipate almost as much as the chapter itself (although I might die of diabetes and have to use dentures by the end of it) please keep it up 😁

  2. Theoretically, can’t Makoto just cast anti-army spirit magic, replenish his lifespan, summon more Undines, cast more anti-army spirit magic, and repeat and bring 200 Undines to Illbis?

    1. Well, I think he has to use sacrifice to replenish lifespan. So it’d a leeetle more complicated,but that is probably the plan. I guess the one he sends sacrifices to is Ira now.

      1. Killing monsters also adds lifespan, just less effectively. That was the original method Makoto used, in fact.
        Also, no to Ira getting the souls. The magic circle was made by Eir, so they should be going to Eir.

      2. I think that’s the only spell of the sort that he’s been taught, along with Eir being the the one who added her magic circle to the dagger. As far as we’ve been shown, Ira hasn’t over-written that. So I think it still has to go to Eir.

      3. We don’t know how exactly Eir set up the magic circle. It could be that it’s set up so all sacrificed souls go to her or the magic circle she added to his dagger is nothing more than allowing him to use the Sacrificial Offering technique in the first place which personally I think is how it is since he still keeps designated Eir as the target to whom the souls go to which I don’t think he would do if they automatically get offered to Eir anyways. If he can specify who the souls get offered to then he could offer them to anybody including Ira and possibly even to Noah.

    2. Right now he has the Ira divinity in him making him immortal, so he doesn’t have to worry about lifespan that much.

  3. Zagan should live somehow so in the future could be killed, the other can die (because of Fate Go I have strong memorie of Barbatos dying). Makoto is in danger, Clear Mind a full power it’s dangerous by itself, but using it so frequently should be much more dangerous than normal.

      1. Comic thing about him, when was relaising I sleep really early to farm a lot and was probably the day I have sleeped the most in all my life, when I woke up, saw the hour and the life of Barbatus the face I put was amaizing.

      2. Noooooo don’t remind me! Barbatos why did you have to die so soon!!!!!! I hardly farmed ye……
        One busy day and late log in and those greedy bastards had already killed him off!!!!

  4. Thank you kami-sama. 8 to go.

    Today’s chapter felt short. Well hero Abel (Makoto) time to create your legend.

  5. Thanks for the Chapter(´-﹏-`)
    It’s the first time I’ve heard about Noah-sama is a spirit goddess…
    Also Makoto’s going to face 9 demon lords, now what would you do? Psuedo chaos god makoto?

    1. They’ve already told us she’s the youngest of the Titan Gods long ago. The rest are sealed away. The spirits where in fact created by the Titan Gods. Therefore the spirits follow Noah.

      Even not long ago Makoto asked if they’d even be willing to fight Cain (Noah’s current Apostle) for this very reason.

      1. Not really and it’s not that simple. Noah is the legit Spirit Goddess and the spirits don’t follow and adore her just because the other Titans are sealed or that she’s a Titan and therefore the spirits love her. How would you then explain the affinity of the Old Man Titan at the beginning of the story? He’s another Titan and he’s not sealed, he’s roaming the planet, and has an Earth magic affinity as Makoto said when he upgraded Makkaren. Why doesn’t he have a general affinity with all of the Spirits then? By your inference, since the Titans created spirits, and therefore they follow them because of it, why does he have a biased affinity? Shouldn’t he use all spirits with not one over the other?

        Furthermore, this same Titan when he used magic (Earth God rank: Creation) to upgrade Makkaren’s defense, didn’t use the Earth Spirits. Why is that? Noah used Time Spirits to reverse time back when she descended and that is essentially a God rank magic so don’t tell me that spirits can’t be used for God rank spells.

        Another thing to note was that when Noah used magic during the crisis of the Fire Country, Makoto said,

        “The mana of the whole world shook greatly as if trembling in joy.
        As if the world itself had been Charmed.”

        And since spirits are the manifestation of nature of the world which was given personality by the Titans, therefore in this scene it might as well have said that the spirits themselves were rejoicing. The mere act of her using magic did that to Spirits and she did that while sealed, though she was partially free for a moment here. Now then, why didn’t that happen to the Old Man Titan when he got freed? They should have caused something extremely big to happen since a Titan was free now, right?

        The thing is, Noah is the Spirit Goddess and other Titans would probably have other titles like, for example, Kronos. He would probably be the Time God if we go by mythologies and this novel’s deities are based from mythologies. And you forget the fact that Noah herself is sealed just like all the other Titans, though in a different place from them, and that she gave Makoto the Spirit User skill. Dia herself looks like Noah. Why doesn’t she or her sisters for that matter transform into other Titans they like Titans equally?

        1. Your premise is that he would suffice in Noah’s place if not “Spirit Goddess” being something unique – which you insist must be Noah. However your premise is faulty because he isn’t quite the same as Noah.

          Direct quote –
          >“…We Titans serve the Titan Gods. If you are the believer of Noah-sama, you are as good as family.”

          >“…Spirit Language is an order from the Titans… Spirits don’t like being ordered.”

          He’s in a position where he can order spirits around, but he serves Noah. I guess you could call him middle management. Noah being the youngest of the Titan Gods would probably be the lowest ranked of them where the rest not sealed as they are. So that kinda kills what you’re saying there.

          Furthermore you’re forgetting that at the “current time” (or rather 1000 years in the past), he’s still sealed. You just said he’s unsealed, and he is not. At “this time” there is no one else for the spirits to serve and if he was there, he serves Noah (as she’s the only one not sealed). Where he there really unsealed, it would still be very strange to be devoted to the underling rather than Noah directly.

  6. Noah is the sprit goddess. No wonder she was heavily reprimanded by the god councils and she knows how yo control the spirit… Makoto need to slap noahs butt at least once

    1. Correction: 100%
      You where supposed to infer this however. The scary change in demeanor that’s nothing like a human, the complete inability to feel fear, and because this is what he does when he needs to utilize a truly crazy amount of mana without losing control.

      The rainbow colored light in his eyes is giving away something else… and if you can’t guess then you’ll find out soon anyhow.

  7. I see, so Makoto really does plan to pull an Aokiji and Ice Age everyone.

    Anna does seem a bit unsettled by Makoto but let’s just hope this doesn’t end up awakening some sorta kink in her. Honestly to me it does sorta seem like she’s one step away from getting aroused by his coldness. She better not turn into Tio.

    So what color exactly are Erinyes’ wings supposed to be? First it said they’re crimson then it said they’re black. Anyways out of the 5 Demon Lords gathered right here currently only Zagan and Valac were confirmed to have survived according to history. Though not like what history recorded means much anyways since this battle was supposed to take place where Highland’s capital Symphonia would later get founded instead of on the Demon Continent like how it is currently unfolding.

  8. You mean Makoto will wipe out half the Demon Kings in one encounter event? This is hilarious!
    Looking forward to what happens next.

  9. owh shiet damm it. 5 demon lords together? but zagan in ther future is still alive isnt? next chapter will be good battle ‘-‘)

  10. hmm, if zagan killed in here what will happen in future,. it is going affect future even more right. it is the reason why Makoto Selected to go back to past

    1. Well with his massived size Zagan is the most likely to survive a blow from the light hero skill and actually get the chance to realise they’re screwed and run for it after the others get killed. Being the beast king his survival instinct should be pretty sharp~

      1. I have an Inkling that in the present 1000 years later Zegan heard Makoto’s name and quite possibly freaked out and therefore transferred his powers to his son which still in a way ended in complete failure.

  11. Alright, now we’re cooking with gas. 1mill demons plus 5 demon lords vs. Makoto and Anna. Can’t really call that a fair fight can we? For the demons that is. So Makoto goes all out on restraint and defense on them, while Anna focuses completely on offense under the sun and kills them one by one? Sounds like a plan if you ask me. I just hope we actually get to see it this time instead of Makoto checking out in the middle like with Bifrons~

    Thanks for the translation! Can I just ask though

    “And at her back, there’s crimson red wings.” but then “The black winged woman waved her hand with a light tone.”
    Can you clarify whether Erinyes wings are red or black and correct one of those? She’ll probably be dead soon, so I’d like to at least show that much respect for her noble sacrifice.

  12. By the history at least 2 of 5 demon lords survived the encounter with XXXX(Makoto), so don’t get too attached to feind, bird and big buddy. They are at best extra.
    Feind and giant are probably done by Makoto, and Fallen lady by Anna, after she tried to appeal for Makoto with her body
    ——–
    We are up for some horror(for demons) I think. Makoto now is literally invulnerable.
    Action Time Indefinite.
    He slowly walks to demon lords, with dagger drawn. Dagger that brings dread to their very soul. He walks closer, and the time itself slows down to the crawl.
    On the background there are Undines mocking them., Undines, personifications of nature’s calamity. And even these calamities bow in awe in front of this “boy”… An abberation wearing the skin of one, at least…
    Demons feel like cold started to shackle their very souls.
    …So this is ‘Chill of Death’?…
    …monster walks closer, with no emotions on its face. Our death sentence is written in its cold eyes…
    …is that spell of Soul Sacrifice encroaching on the blade?…
    Iblis-sama, please be careful, the Reaper has came…

  13. 5 of the 9 Demon Lords? This can’t be right…

    …Zagan is supposed to die in the future. No amount of tweaking from Ira is going to be able to compensate for a person meant to die a thousand years from now dying right here and now.
    Is he somehow gonna get away? Otherwise, poor Ira. Or maybe…we’ll end up luckily subbing in one of the other demon lords? That wouldn’t be bad.

    Ah well. That’s future Ira’s problem. Right now, Takki’s packing enough heat to undo the Great Demon Lord’s spell encompassing the sky. Let’s sweep this team and utterly route the army with this. Will any of the other legendary party members have a role to play?

  14. It recently occurred to me that Makoto’s last name, if it used different kanji, could be read as “Hawkmoon” (鷹月), but having looked around at Jisho, the actual reading is most likely “Tall Zelkova Tree” (高槻).

    This amused me, because that alternate reading could have been an interesting reason in part as to why he has a good affinity with Furiae.

  15. This is just more proof that Makoto has 1000+ magic proficiency. Ten Undines. He needs 1000 or more proficiency to summon them and sync with them as reliably as does. Being a sprit king 1,000 years later does not matter because that occurred in the future, not the past 1,000 years ago.

    It is fortunate that Makoto did not convert to any of the holy goddesses otherwise his spirit magic would be affected with Noah being being the spirit goddess and Dia warning him not to.

    In the past he could use the loophole mentioned by Noah without having 1000. Being Noah’s follower (soul contract), 200+ magic proficiency, and charm active. In the past 1,000 years ago, Noah ended her apostle soul contract with Makoto and sealed his spirit king form, so he cannot use that loophole anymore.

    And people still believe he is at 999 for 6+ months. That is a funny joke.

  16. Cain defected without their knowledge, Bifrons got killed then there’s these 5 stooges so now we got 7 introduced demon lords, right? only 2 demon lords left.

  17. thanks for chap
    out of 9 bifrons is dead , 5 here will mostly die at mc too so that leaves 3 huh and zagan should survive somehow
