WM – Chapter 282: Ancient Dragon King’s Recollection

◇Ancient Dragon King’s POV◇

My youngest child has finally returned after several centuries. 

I thought for sure she would come by herself, but she had a human man by her side.

At first, I thought it was a weak being that only had feeble mana. 

However, this being is known far and wide in the demon lord army. 

A user of Great Water Spirits that hasn’t shown up in several tens of thousands of years. 

I have never met a human Spirit User this strong in my life. 

At first, that personage told us the one we should be careful about is the Light Hero. 

But now this one is being seen as even more dangerous than that.

A person that can even use God Rank Magic isn’t something that can be ignored. 

To think from all people, she would be bringing him…

“It has been a while, my daughter…” (Astaroth)

My voice resonates in the hall. 

It is the truth that quite a long time has passed since the last time we met. 

Due to her displeasure when I decided that I would be serving that personage, my daughter hid herself somewhere. 

I didn’t expect to reunite with her in this manner. 

“You as well Father. You seem to be in good health.” (Mel)

My daughter was taking a slightly sulky attitude. 

I thought she had calmed down, but she is still young, huh. 

But to think she would bring a human to my castle. 

The man at her side was looking around the castle as if he were curious about everything. 

(What is he thinking…?) (Astaroth)

If he were to show a bit of a nervous countenance facing a Demon Lord in their own castle, he would have been a bit cuter. 

He is looking over here as if he isn’t shaken by anything. 

I endured my irritation and asked my daughter. 

“Why are you allying with a human?” (Astaroth)

“The same reason as you, Father. I am simply obeying a strong one.” (Mel)

“…So the man by your side has tricked my daughter.” (Astaroth)

I say this poisonously. 

“Showing respect to the strong is the pride of Ancient Dragons, right?” (Mel)

“Tomorrow that personage will be coming to this metropolis. When that happens, it will be over, you know?” (Astaroth)

I strengthen my tone. 

That’s right, no one can match that personage. 

“There’s no knowing, right? Even today, he put a fight against you and the Demon Lords.” (Mel)

“Putting me on the same grounds as that personage…how foolish.” (Astaroth)

“Since when did you become such a wimp?” (Mel)

No good. 

My daughter is blindly accepting the Spirit User man. 

Then I have no choice but to ask the man by her side. 

“What’s your name?” (Astaroth)

I ask the man by the side of my daughter. 

This is my first time trying to learn the name of a human.

But that man simply looked over here with a dumbfounded expression.

“Takatsuki Makoto, Father.” (Mel)

My daughter answered instead. 

Why are you the one answering? 

“Takatsuki Makoto, were you the one who defeated my friend Bifrons?” (Astaroth)

No matter how much I try, it ends up with a hard tone. 

I have been acquainted with Bifrons for long. 

I have heard he isn’t completely dead, but I can’t fathom the idea of him being defeated by a human. 

“We were lucky.” (Makoto)

“…Hoh.” (Astaroth)

So you are calling it luck. 

The Immortal King can’t be defeated by something like that. 

What a ridiculous man. 

I stand up from my throne, and slowly approach the Spirit User man. 

He does show slight signs of faltering, but he isn’t running or hiding. 

I can’t attack this man because of the Moon Oracle’s curse anyways. 

Even so, despite being surrounded by this many seasoned Ancient Dragons in a Demon Lord Castle, and being right in front of me, he is still this calm. 

Just what are the nerves of this man?

Is it his confidence of being able to use the God Rank Spell that he utilized before? 

“The Divinity that’s in your body, even with that, it won’t work on that personage, you know?” (Astaroth)

That personage is on a different plane from us Demon Lords.

If he thinks he can defeat that personage with such half-baked magic, that would be insulting. 

“Don’t know till you try.” (Makoto)

“It is pointless. Stop the foolish choices. Come to our side.” (Astaroth)

“Father, that’s pointless. He is moving as an Apostle of a Divine Realm Goddess. He won’t stop.” (Mel)

An Apostle of a Goddess, huh. 

That’s troublesome. 

All Apostles who have seen a God have gone crazy without exception. 

It was the same for that Demon Lord Cain that believes in an Evil God.

No matter how strong you are, it is no good without your sanity. 

You can’t even have a conversation with those kinds. 

(This is bad… At this rate, my daughter is going to antagonize that personage.) (Astaroth)

I must stop that. 

Should I just ignore the curse and stop them by force? 

Maybe my state of mind was transmitted, the Spirit User man spoke. 

“Don’t worry, Ancient Dragon King, if it looks impossible, we will simply run away.” (Makoto)

“What did you say…?” (Astaroth)

I was bewildered by his words. 

Him fighting to the death surrounded by Demon Lords and overcoming it was not to challenge that personage? 

How can he say he will run away in such a nonchalant manner? 

“You bastard, do you think you can just get away after having an audience with that personage?!” (Astaroth)

A shout unconsciously came out from my mouth. 

Even I understood with just a glance that I had no choice but to obey that personage.

That’s just how much of a difference there is as a living being. 

I remembered the awe at that time, and it changed to anger. 

Miasma overflowed from me unintentionally, and I ended up trying to intimidate them. 

All my subordinates drew back at once. 

No good, this is not pressure that should be directed at a human. 

I reflected on this and looked at the Spirit User. 

“We are finally getting a chance to meet them, so I should at least greet them.” (Makoto)

The Spirit User man said calmly. 

Those eyes were by no means those of a madman. 

(This man…) (Astaroth)

Why is he able to make such eyes when facing me? 

I see, no wonder my daughter has been captivated by him.

That’s regrettable. 

I would have wanted to have a bout with someone with this much courage.

“I don’t think you will come out safely after going against that personage. However, if you somehow survive, once the curse of the Moon Oracle goes away, fight me. If you win, I will grant you a seal of the Dragon King that will let you have all dragons obey you.” (Astaroth)

“…Father, are you serious?” (Mel)

“Dragon King?” (Makoto)

My daughter and the Spirit User man made surprised expressions. 

“You are the man that defeated my old friend and enticed my daughter; it is in the nature of an Ancient Dragon to want to fight you.” (Astaroth)

By the time I noticed, those feelings of annoyance were gone. 

I waited for how he would answer me…

“…………………..”

…..

I could faintly see some letters close to the Spirit User man. 

But they disappeared soon after.

What a strange feeling.

“Got it. I promise. Let’s have a match one day.” (Makoto)

The Spirit User man answered easily. 

My subordinate Ancient Dragons grew noisy. 

Interesting. 

This man will surely appear in front of me again. 

I am sure of this. 

I in good mood tell my subordinates to see off the Spirit User man until the outside of the castle. 

I stopped my daughter who was going to leave with him.

After that, I took my time and listened to what kind of journey my daughter had. 

◇Light Hero Anna’s POV◇

(Makoto-san is late…) (Anna)

Momo and I were waiting for him to come back, but he isn’t coming back at all.

“C-Could it be the White Dragon Master is also aiming for Makoto-san and they are currently all steamy?!” (Momo)

“No no, there’s no way.” (Anna)

I denied that idea with a laugh.

“Who knows! Lately, her eyes when looking at Makoto-sama have been the eyes of a woman just like Anna-san!” (Momo)

“W-Wait, Momo-chan?!” (Anna)

I don’t make those eyes! 

…Probably.

“Anyways, there’s nothing to do. Want to go outside for a bit?” (Momo)

“Yeah, let’s.” (Anna)

I agreed to the invitation of Momo-chan.

Johnny-san and Makoto-san have gone out too. 

It would be boring for us to be the only ones staying at the inn.

There was a bustling street outside of the inn. 

I haven’t seen a city this developed since Laphroaig. 

No, this is prospering far more than that city. 

I even think this might be the most prosperous place in the world.

Momo-chan and I were looking around the street stalls. 

Maybe because it is a different continent, there’s a lot of food and costumes that I have never seen before. 

Also, all the stall owners were demons. 

But they aren’t saying anything even when seeing me -a human. 

This was shocking as someone who was taught by my master that demons are enemies. 

All the demons here are greeting us with a smile. 

I was told by Makoto-san that they have all been Charmed and are being controlled.

Honestly, my poisonous nature was getting taken away.

(Why is the North Continent so different from the other continents…?) (Anna)

That’s not fair. 

Even though the humans in the West Continent are not happy at all. 

“You are a new face.” 

“Eh?” 

Momo-chan swiftly hid behind my back. 

When I turned there, 3 girls had spoken to Momo.

They look like humans at a glance, but I could see small fangs peeking from their mouths. 

They are also vampires.

Isn’t it dangerous? Is what I thought, but I couldn’t feel any hostility from them.

It seems they are purely interested in Momo-chan. 

“Could it be that you came from outside? I would like to listen to your story.” 

“You are strong. You must have gotten the blood of quite the noble one.” 

“Uhm…” (Momo)

Momo-chan was flustered at first, but she slowly meshed in.

As far as I know, she hasn’t had the chance to speak to girls her same age. 

That’s why she must be happy. 

I checked the stores close around, but doing that alone wasn’t that fun. 

(If only Makoto-san was here…) (Anna)

While I was thinking that, a familiar face passed by. 

“Johnny-san?” (Anna)

“Anna-dono, huh.” (Johnny)

The reddish brown long haired handsome elf swordsman. 

“No matter if we are protected by the curse, being alone is careless, you know.” (Johnny)

I was going to point out that he has no right to be saying that, but I noticed that someone was by the side of Johnny-san. 

This one isn’t a familiar face. 

This is my first time seeing them. 

“Hey, is this girl your comrade? What a pretty girl.” 

The one leaning coquettishly against Johnny-san was a brown skinned dark elf woman. 

“She is a comrade of the party leader I spoke to you about just now.” (Johnny)

“I see, the one that controls Great Water Spirits, huh. I would like to meet him too.” 

“U-Uhm…Johnny-san, who is this person?” (Anna)

This is my first time meeting a dark elf, but it is still a demon. 

And yet, they are talking as if they were pretty close to each other. 

Did he coincidentally meet an old acquaintance? 

“A friend of yours?” (Anna)

“Nope, met her just a few moments ago.” (Johnny)

Looks like she spoke to him when he was exploring the city. 

And yet they seem this close?! 

“Hey, let’s go quickly~.” 

“Yeah, sorry for making you wait.” (Johnny)

The dark elf woman grabs the arm of Johnny-san and pulls him. 

“Uhm…Johnny-san, are you going to be coming back to the inn…?” (Anna)

“I will return tomorrow morning.” (Johnny)

“Eeh…” (Anna)

It has already been settled that he will be returning the next morning?! 

We are in enemy territory though.

“Tomorrow will be the final battle. You should get some energy too, Anna-dono. Maybe having Makoto-dono embrace you.” (Johnny)

“Wa?!” (Anna)

Johnny-san said something outrageous at the end as he left together with the woman.

E-Embrace, he says…

Haah, just what is he saying?

I fan my heated up face. 

Momo-chan is talking to the vampire girls. 

Just when I was thinking it should be about time to return to the inn…

(Ah! Makoto-san!) (Anna)

I found him.

Makoto-san was looking around restlessly as if he were worried about his surroundings and was heading somewhere. 

It is the opposite direction of the inn, so it doesn’t seem like he is going back. 

Just where is he going…?

D-Don’t tell me he met a woman like Johnny-san…?

Or maybe it is as Momo-chan feared and he is having a clandestine meeting with the White Dragon-sama?! 

…No, there’s no way. 

Nah, that’s not possible. 

But it bothers me. 

By the time I noticed, I had erased my presence and was tailing Makoto-san.

We were advancing deeper and deeper into the city, the amount of people lessening more and more. 

Isn’t this the first time Makoto-san has come to this city…?

Makoto-san was walking unceasingly without getting lost. 

We arrived at the outskirts of the city. 

A really rundown place. 

All the buildings are worn down, and there’s no presence of people. 

I thought no one would come to a place like this. 

But Makoto-san had his arms folded and was training his water magic while clearly waiting for someone. 

I watch him while being careful to not enter the line of sight of Makoto-san. 

He was just standing there and there were no changes. 

Just when I thought about just going back…

Someone came.

Not a woman. 

That relieved me a bit. 

What a relief, Makoto-san wasn’t having a secret date. 

But who is it he is trying to meet while avoiding the eyes of others? 

I focus and look at the person Makoto-san was talking to. 

(Eh?) (Anna)

I felt like my breath was going to stop.

My heart was racing. 

I can’t keep my hands from trembling. 

Why is that person…

That face is a face I have seen in Laberintos.

There’s no way I would forget it. 

A man that normally covers his whole body is armor and doesn’t show his face at all.

The Black Knight Demon Lord.

The Apostle of an Evil God.

And…the man that killed the Fire Hero.

“Demon Lord Cain…” (Anna)

The one Makoto-san was meeting with…was the killer of my master.

    1. “Putting me on the same grounds as that personage…how foolish.” (Astaroth)
      “Since when did you become such a wimp?” (Mel)
      No good.
      My daughter is blindly accepting the Spirit User man

      Pfft give it up old man, your daughter certainly in her rebellious phase. She’s already head over heels in love with Makoto.

      “I don’t think you will come out safely after going against that personage. However, if you somehow survive, once the curse of the Moon Oracle goes away, fight me. If you win, I will grant you a seal of the Dragon King that will let you have all dragons obey you.” (Astaroth)

      Makoto becomes the king of dragon huh, well that certainly badass. As an apostle this is something that you must accomplish Makoto. If you can make all the dragon in the world obey you pretty much you already have the strongest force in the world (including spirit ofc)

      “Who knows! Lately, her eyes when looking at Makoto-sama have been the eyes of a woman just like Anna-san!” (Momo)
      “W-Wait, Momo-chan?!” (Anna)
      I don’t make those eyes!
      …Probably.

      You’re really sharp momo-chan

      “Demon Lord Cain…” (Anna)
      The one Makoto-san was meeting with…was the killer of my master.

      Oh something bad gonna happen, that was a fatal mistake from you Makoto. Looks like anna will get the truth sooner than expected. I wonder how the author handles this one.

        1. Likely case yes remember that water country event when the dragon’s invaded and just before the dragon was bisected by Makoto he said something before he died and all of the dragon’s ran away scared because they knew exactly who he was.

      1. It could be, this is also could be included as foreshadowing. Maybe 1000 later he’s already become Makoto’s subordinate. Well it would be epic if he’s already tamed by Makoto and if the human side learns that the dragon king become their ally they certainly will be shocked

      2. I’m hoping this will be what makes makoto tell them just who he is and why he is there. it’s been along time coming and there’s no way he will leave without saying anything.

    1. While I was thinking that, a familiar face passed by.

      “Johnny-san?” (Makoto)

      “Anna-dono, huh.” (Johnny)

      Makoto > Anna
      Since Makoto ain’t there in that place yet.
      Lol Reigokai-sama has been making little mistakes these past few days, be sure to get sufficient rest.

    1. The descriptions Astaroth gave to the Great Demon Lord scares me. If even he who stands at the top of the demon lords can’t stand a chance against him, I wonder what the party can do.

      And he invited him to a fight after this huh. Is that why he isn’t dead yet in the present? If he loses to Makoto, I can see him becoming a butler or a new comrade.

      Oh shit, the meeting of Cain and Anna. Makoto’s identity will probably be revealed finally unless if there’s a way to still hide that. I wonder what’ll happen to the party after this.

      1. I’m betting the great demon lord is a transfer. The capital is surprisingly modern yes? Wouldn’t it be fun if the GDL was just a super charm user? Since all the demon lord’s were affected by the curse (and it has been said that charm is a form of curse), it’s possible that the GDL is just a super strong one-trick pony. It could also explain why the moon oracle is just basically doing as she pleases without obviously crossing the line of antagonizing the demon side.
        It would also mean that Makoto would almost be guaranteed victory if he can prevent his friends from becoming hostages under the GDL’ s charm.

        1. I don’t think it’s that simple. The pitch dark clouds is his spell and that’s god rank magic. And then he lent power to Nevia to change day to night though momentarily. If he was just a charm user, I don’t think he’d be capable of those feats.

      2. Well that could be the effect of one his subordinates like for example if he managed to charm. Some God or demigod maybe?

      3. Well actually it the super charm theory could work remember makoto used charm to initially access undine if someone was grinding charm like makoto grinds water proficiency they could potentially charm magic/nature/the world itself leading to extraordinary feats of power that are actually just the forces that make up the world around them acting in their favour

    1. “My daughter was taking a slightly sulky attitude.
      I thought she had calmed down, but she is still young, huh. ”
      So Mel is in her rebellious phase.

      ““The same reason as you, Father. I am simply obeying a strong one.” (Mel)
      “…So the man by your side has tricked my daughter.” (Astaroth)”
      Looks like a father-in-law who disapproves the lover of his daughter…

      “That’s troublesome.
      All Apostles who have seen a God have gone crazy without exception.
      It was the same for that Demon Lord Cain that believes in an Evil God.
      No matter how strong you are, it is no good without your sanity. ”
      Makoto was always crazy… Being the Apostle of a Goddess didn’t affect him at all.

      ““Don’t worry, Ancient Dragon King, if it looks impossible, we will simply run away.” (Makoto)”
      So he wants to use the Joestar Secret Technique ?

      “Even I understood with just a glance that I had no choice but to obey that personage.
      That’s just how much of a difference there is as a living being. ”
      So Astaroth is way weaker than Iblis. I cannot see how Makoto can win against Iblis.

      “I see, no wonder my daughter has been captivated by him.
      “You are the man that defeated my old friend and enticed my daughter; it is in the nature of an Ancient Dragon to want to fight you.” (Astaroth)”
      So he thinks Mel is in love with Makoto ? Lol.

      “The dark elf woman grabs the arm of Johnny-san and pulls him.
      “Uhm…Johnny-san, are you going to be coming back to the inn…?” (Anna)
      “I will return tomorrow morning.” (Johnny)”
      Wow, Johnny works fast.

      “The one Makoto-san was meeting with…was the killer of my master. ”
      Isn’t that quite bad. Damn cliffhanger.

      Ancient Dragon King Astaroth is a black dragon, huh.
      https://i.imgur.com/gTHKNbC.jpg

      1. I feel like Ibliss was never actually defeated and a deal of sorts was made instead, and damn looks like makoto has an appointment with Astaroth in the future when he returns

      2. …well, Makoto already crazy to begin with. In fact, he’s so crazy that it’s him who made the Goddess went crazy and probably the only human who bring a lot of headache to the Goddesses. lol

  1. Thanks for the chapter!

    Lol, was expecting Astaroth to be the protective father archetype, was not disappointed. But I would love to see it from Makoto’s perspective. Could the Dragon King see RPG Player?

    Also, drama incoming with Cain and Anna *grabs popcorn*

  2. Ah shit, ah shit. The cat’s out of the bag.

    Later on, Anna: “Did you meet up with Demon Lord Cain earlier?”

    Makoto: “No no, it was another woman, I swear!”.

    1. But this can be a huge problem. Since the Light Hero skill is heavily dependent on Anna’s mood and Makoto being her crutch, appearing to betray her, it would probably severely dampen her combat ability.

        1. I just remembered isn’t Noel a Yandere too, oh fuck, Makoto may have the worst luck in the world, Sa-san by authors description a Yandere or slightly then Anna who is also Yandere my boy will he survive the shuraba when he gets back……

  3. Ooh, Cain and Abel/Anna in the same chap 😀

    Thank you for the chapter

    Also, I guess Mel is just weird, but where is she in the original timeline?

    1. Maybe she’s waiting with her father for Makoto to show up. I’d like to picture Mel spending her time waiting by creating increasingly elaborate romantic scenario’s of how Makoto will come to take her away.

    2. Maybe dead or hiding somewhere ,in the original time line all her family was killed and Makoto doesn’t exist . A lot of people that is still alive was dead in the original time line .

    3. In the original timeline, both the White Dragon and Anna went missing after the final war with Iblis. The White Dragon immediately went away right after the war and Anna also went away after she build a country for the human. Only left Momo (the Great Sage) alone to hold the fort.

  4. Thanks for the chapter.

    I honestly pity Cain. He may have killed thousands of people but you also have to remember that he is an apostle of Noah without having clear mind. Everyone from his hometown is dead as well making him alone. But now that Makoto came, he can finally find some solace in the world of despair he’s living in. I hope it works out for him and that Anna doesn’t bring him more pain.

    But of course, this does not justify the massacre he did.

    1. We will see him turn mellow because he has Makoto to compare himself to and we all know that Makoto is already crazy before being an apostle. Cain is only desperate and havent gone to the deep end yet.

  5. So is anyone going to mention this line from the dragon king,
    “You are the man that defeated my old friend and enticed my daughter; it is in the nature of an Ancient Dragon to want to fight you.” (Astaroth)

    By the time I noticed, those feelings of annoyance were gone.

    I waited for how he would answer me…

    “…………………..”

    …..

    I could faintly see some letters close to the Spirit User man.

    But they disappeared soon after.

    What a strange feeling.

    Yeah he most definitely saw RPG Player in the open just like Furiae and the other goddesses.

      1. Why not both? Or rather, we know it somehow interacts with fate, and perhaps it works through something like divinity?

      2. I believe that RPG-San influences everything, it is a choice that will lead its bearer to an end, for example in the episode in which the RPG player gave the choice to harem ending

  6. Thank you for the chapter!

    1- Makoto vs Astaroth? Oh yeah!

    2- Johnny, a true man of culture indeed!

    3- in a sense Momo was right: makoto was having a bromance affair with his Hot-for-Noah comrade XD

    1. You overlooked that basically Astaroth recognized Makoto as Mel’s partner, currently they are nothing but Momo practically confirmed it and Astaroth is going to give him his seal of approval giving him the seal of the dragon king.

  7. Just give makoto san a smartphone and he will be having a source of divinity himself.

    Also, for rosalie san, it’s interesting that the relationship started as overnight only. Hahahaha

  8. Mel the most mature of the party (pre Jonny) is in her rebellious phase lol. Did we just get a hint about RPG-san? Astaroth has strong god blood and was able to faintly notice what was most likely a question to accept his challenge and Ira has always reacting strongly when she was present and it went off, I originally thought it was due to it being fate related but now it think its divine related because of Astaroth. Oh boy the big reveal of Makoto and Cain, seems we’ll also learn what was his promise with Cain

  9. So Astaroth really is a doting father that worries about his daughter. Luckily it seems Makoto has gained his approval since he didn’t flinch even in the face of Astaroth’s power. Now he wants to one day have a match with Makoto. That’s basically giving his approval of Mel being in a relationship with Makoto. Anyways maybe this is why Astaroth didn’t take part in the Northern Expedition war against Sakurai. He probably learned about Makoto’s participation since he was pretty famous by that point and he’s just waiting for Makoto to challenge him just as he promised. Maybe Mel is also with her dad in the future and that’s why history says she disappeared and she’s waiting for Makoto to come take her.

    So with how strong they are describing Iblis, I’m starting to wonder if Makoto and his group don’t actually fight him. Like they make a deal with him instead or something.

    Heh Momo sure has an active imagination and is very observant when it comes to women and Makoto. I really hope she remains like this when Makoto meets her again 1000 years in the future and she’s become the Great Sage.

    Of course Johnny ended up going to the city just to go pick up hot chicks. He works fast. He just met a dark erofu and he’s already planned to not return until tomorrow to the woman’s enthusiasm.

    Ah Anna just encountered Cain meeting up with Makoto. Well that’s not good. Not sure how Makoto’s going to explain this. Is this where he ends up telling his companions about how he’s from the future and Noah’s Apostle from that era?

    1. He can tell them that is necessary to defeat Iblis……I mean seriously Cain is OP . The future of the humanity or her hate for Cain?

    2. Like previously mentioned I’m a fan of the idea that tgl only has some kind of aura /charm power since the dragon king never mentioned himself ever fighting tgl and just accepting his power by appearances.

  10. Damn, this is the first time someone see the choice of RPG Player, Furiae and Ira-chan have seen the change of the destiny, but this is the first time someone see the letters itself, even if it was just for a brief moment, that’s pretty big. Also, I was right, it was a meet with father-in-law.

    This was obvious to happen in some moment, but as expected, what a bad timing.

  11. Anna: I came looking for NTR and found treason.

    Ah Anna that pitiful heroine, the main character displaced by Makoto, also the heroine who is more like a secondary character.

  12. Well… I liked this chapter, I wonder how Anna will react. That was pretty careless from Makoto, but I wanted to see more of Makoto and Cain

  13. If GDL is a transfer like Makoto, what if he/she is actually an aquintance/familiy of Makoto? If its true that GDL is a loli, maybe she is Makoto’s little sister? That would be one hell of plot twist.

    1. Iblis was said to come from a higher dimensional plane of existence. Think Outer God from the Cthulhu Mythos. Course that doesn’t mean Iblis can’t be a girl. Just look at that one manga with Nyarlathotep as a girl.

  14. Thanks for the chapter!
    That’s a pinch: Makoto, Cain and Anna in the same place?
    Nice work, cliff-kun!
    As for Iblis: I also think there is some charming magic behind it, but that can’t be all… impossible. I’m impatient to meet her (as for the voice Makoto heard before was that of a loli).
    Well done in front of Astaroth, attaboy! Just being himself, aka a crazy person with clear mind at 100%, he actually won him over… and RPG player just programmed an “after demon lord”, which is quite reassuring.
    Well, this novel never cease to be interesting, thanks for the translation!

  15. Oh so Lucy’s (I actually forgot her name lol) ancestor is that dark elf.

    So she was supposed to be a citizen of this city but maybe Makoto won and the people had to move.

    That woman was even as feisty as Lucy’s mom. LoL

    So here we are. Will Anna stay by Makoto’s side or will she lash out at him.

    And when she learns that Makoto is actually an apostle of Noah like Cain. Can she overcome her emotion and think of the circumstances first?

  16. Thanks for the Chapter (´-﹏-`)
    I think Makoto will really became a dragon king somehow..
    And that ending tho i feel like something bad’s gonna happen fast

  17. Thanks for the chapter.
    Mel-chan, the only harem member to have bring Makoto meet her father
    (Not that many in the harem can…)

  18. Thanks for the chapter! Looks like a scene of carnage is imminent. I wonder how Makoto is going to get out of this. Then again, he might use that air-headed charm of his to get Anna to accept Cain as an ally.

  19. So will that duel with her father will happen after he returns to the present? Or will it happen in the past and that’s the real reason the dragons didn’t do anything for the thousand years between?
    And yes, I already expected as much for Johnny-san. That damn playboy bastard would easily pick up a woman to spend the night in the freaking city of demons like it’s no big deal~

    And that ending? It was bound to happen sooner or later, but with this timing? I can’t guess how Makoto will settle this………..

    Thanks for the translation!

    1. After visiting Iblis …… Astaroth knows that Makoto is human, it would be illogical that he waits for him 1000 years in the future, that would mean that they know his secret.
      The demons did nothing in the future because they were regaining their strength, resurrecting the generals, demons like Seketh and Iblis himself.

      1. Well, he could have given an order that lasts after he dies, or they could just be indoctrinated to Makoto’s insanity and don’t dare to disobey even after they think he would have died by old age. Or he tells them that he’s travelling back to the future.

      2. I think you misunderstood. I wasn’t talking about Astaroth’s intentions. I was speculating on what Makoto was going to do since the time of the duel wasn’t set. He just promised he would come back to fight the dragon king some time after meeting Iblis. I was just wondering if it would take place as soon as Astaroth would expect, or if Makoto would unexpectedly turn up a thousand years later all nonchalant about being a bit late or something. Also, I got the impression that if Astaroth was at full strength, then even if Iblis was defeated he could still cause a disaster in the human lands if he led his dragons and attacked. Seems odd that he just quietly waited for a thousand years without doing anything when any human heroes who emerged in the mean time wouldn’t have stood a chance against him.
        That’s how it seemed to me.

        1. Well what Makoto does depends on what happens after visiting Iblis, it would be difficult to visit Astaroht when they are on the run. Even with 50% of his power Astaroht is dangerous, you say maybe he made a pact with Makoto …. but then what about the other demon lords? . It makes more sense that they wait for the resurrection of Iblis, after all for them it is not that long.

          Dragons are not a conflictive race, most of their actions in the war against humans are orders from someone more powerful. In that sense it is not so rare that Astaroth did not attack for 1000 years.

  20. Well the shuraba in the future will be Epic: “btw Saint Anna, the great Sage, the White dragón and maybe one of Lucy ancestors that should be dead are joining… So what’s for lunch?

  21. Now I wonder what will happen if Makoto return to the future and said: “I’m back everyone, by the way holy maiden Anna, Holy dragon Helemerck and great sage Momo is my girlfriends now.”

  22. ““Demon Lord Cain…” (Anna)

    The one Makoto-san was meeting with…was the killer of my master. ”
    Oh shit.

  23. Maybe RPG choices will appear to either antagonize Cain and die to him, or antagonize Anna and die to her.
    Well, good luck Makoto.

  24. This is just a speculation, no facts and evidence but…

    What if makoto is in time loop because of noah and the outside gods?

    Imagine Noah being a yandere

  25. You know, I’m personally kinda glad his finally happened. Not that it isn’t bad timing and this almost guarantees we won’t be fighting Iblis during this meeting, but at least Takki can finally be honest with the Hero Party. As attached to him as they are, there’s going to be a distance between them for as long as he doesn’t tell them who he is and where he came from.

    Mel-san too, huh? I’ll take Momo’s word for it, since her woman’s intuition is crazy strong. On the bright side, the Great Sage has a partner to wait a thousand years with now. Maybe Dia, but she’s worse at cooperation.

    Astaroth himself got captivated, it seems. Calm Mind just makes you look crazy and interesting to the strong it seems. Probably would’ve been polite to add the qualifier “might not be able to fight for a thousand years though”, but Mel can pass the message along later.

  26. thanks for chap
    seeing how this is going,i feel more and more that mc may not end up killing iblis

    and did he really have to meet cain without checking once where anna was?

  27. Wait…Makoto is getting Mel too? Wow… I mean it’s not something happening yet but it isn’t completely impossible too…

  28. Momo being honest with her affection towards Makoto is able to notice others (like Anna and possibly Mel) making eyes towards her master. xD

  29. Is it just me, or has the story recently felt like it has went off course? I’m currently questioning the MC’s mental state and whether he’s a psychopath and the author’s concept of how the past and future affect one another really confuses me.

    1. MC’s mental state is always on a gray area, it’s been hinted long before this. Remember the prologue, he’s the guy who keeps playing games as he slowly died from freezing alongside his friends from the bus.

      Past-future connection are purposely being set as ambiguous so that author can justify whatever changed, that’s why Ira said the timelines are “mixing”.

  30. Author’s lost QnA session:
    Q: Is this the first time we get to see RPG Player choice from other perspective?
    A: Not the first one, but if the gods know the details, they’ll be surprised
