WM – Chapter 287: The Calamity Witch and the Light Hero

TLN: Hey guys, Reigokai here!

We have finally caught up with the raws. That means the schedule will now change to when the chapters are out. Normally that’s once a week. I will mostly be squeezing them before the day of a Tsuki chapter.

The journey is not over yet! It is simply going to be slower~.

Anyways, enjoy the chapter~!


The Light Hero Anna-san waves her sword lightly. 

Just that alone created a strong gale intense enough to almost blow me away. 

Countless light blades were being released from the shining Holy Sword Anna-san was holding. 

Each and every single one of those was comparable to saint rank. 

The air shook.

The Calamity Witch Nevia facing her smiled silently. 

Not only the black staff in her hand, there was pitch black miasma covering her whole body. 

A clear voice that contrasted her wicked appearance resonated.

— “Dark Magic: [Black Hand Touch].” 

Innumerable black hands grew out from the staff of Nevia and crushed the light blades.

“You are a human, right? Why are you taking the side of the Great Demon Lord?!” (Anna)

Anna-san shouts. 

I thought she would ignore it, but she unexpectedly responded. 

“I am a devilkin, not a human.” (Nevia)

Magic activated one after the other as she sighed.

— “Dark Magic: [Black Death Bird].” (Nevia)

Dark magic in the shape of a giant black bird.

It resembles the monarch rank spell of Lucy, Phoenix, but it is far more sinister than that. 

The huge army of darkness birds flock at Anna-san.

“I was born from the mistress of the Laphroaig King. I have had miasma since the day I was born, and my power as a demon was strong, so I was confined straight away. I was supposed to pass my whole life in prison as a taboo princess…” (Nevia)

“That’s why…you ended up hating humans and…” (Anna)

Anna-san had her hands full dealing with the attacks of the Calamity Witch. 

I want to help, but this is an exchange entirely of saint rank attacks. 

“But I was chosen as the Moon Oracle. Naia-sama had given me the ability to Charm all living beings. It was easy to control the Moon Country with that power. I could just Charm the demons that attacked the Moon Country. While at it, I thought it would be fine to just pair up the humans and demons to make everyone into devilkin…” (Nevia)

Nevia speaks flowingly. 

Even so…the devilkins were a ‘while at it’, huh…

“That’s not reason enough to take the side of the Great Demon Lord!” (Anna)

Anna-san lunges at the Calamity Witch with her Holy Sword.

But she was hindered by the countless black arms and couldn’t reach her. 

“That great personage is a pitiful one.” (Nevia)

The Calamity Witch says this with a sad smile while lightly deflecting the fierce attacks of the Light Hero.

(…This is bad.) (Ira)

Indeed bad, Ira-sama.

Looks like the Calamity Witch fused with the Great Demon Lord is stronger than the awakened Anna-san.

It is currently a fierce competition of supremacy, but there’s leeway in the Calamity Witch.

(How is it…Dia?) (Makoto)

I speak to the lifeline I rely on.

(Our King…my apologies. I most likely won’t only be unable to match her, but will most likely end up Charmed and taken in instead…) (Dia)

Dia would get Charmed?! 

I was surprised for an instant, but it is true that I did borrow the power of Charm when I asked for the power of the Great Water Spirits.

Then, it won’t work.

I can’t borrow the strength of the Great Water Spirits.

“Iblis-sama was a weak God. He was chased out to Hell and was dropped to the Mortal Realm, but he couldn’t live there without a barrier… He had no allies, and what he created because he wanted a family were the Taboo Monsters…” (Nevia)

“…”

Hearing that, I directed my gaze to the many strangely shaped monsters in the floating castle. 

The Taboo Monsters have run to the edges at the battle of the Calamity Witch and the Light Hero.

I see, so those were monsters the Great Demon Lord created because he wanted comrades, huh.

“It is okay. I have Nevia… —Your words bring me great honor, Iblis-sama…” 

The first half was the Great Demon Lord and the later half was the Calamity Witch.

It came from the mouth of the same person, so it is really hard to tell.

The Calamity Witch was endlessly shooting saint rank spells while she was talking in a tone as if she were having a casual talk.

The ground of the floating castle was splitting and at times it would shake heavily. 

It was to the point that I was beginning to worry whether it will eventually fall.

“Haaah…haaah…haaah…” (Anna)

Anna-san was breathing heavily. 

Even I could tell that her feet were unsteady. 

(N-No way… There’s no way the awakened Light Hero would get bested…) (Ira)

I can tell this situation is bad from the voice of Ira-sama.

But what can I do…?

“You are not as strong as I heard you were. Then, let’s make this the finale.” (Nevia)

The staff of the Calamity Witch began to release even more sinister miasma. 

“This is bad, the Hero-kun is going to die!” (Mel)

“Let’s assist her.” (Johnny)

Mel-san and Johnny-san jump out at the same time. 

Momo was still unconscious.

“Dia, I leave Momo to you!” (Makoto)

“Yes, Our King!” (Dia)

I also head to where Anna-san is one beat later.

“Fufufu…eat them all, okay, savage dogs of Hades…” (Nevia)

The spell of Nevia was completed.

— “Dark Magic: [Double-headed dog of Hades, Orthos]” (Nevia)

The Calamity Witch activates the spell.

It was a demonic dog with two heads. 

No, Orthos is a Divine Beast that’s said to be in Hades. 

T-This isn’t the real deal, right? 

“Grrrr…” 

It raised a low growl and leapt onto Anna-san.

And at the same time as that happened, several hundred of black hands rain onto Anna-san.

A number of them wrap around the arms and legs of Anna-san.

This is bad! 

We rush out in order to protect Anna-san.

““UOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!””

The double headed Orthos roared.

As it did, the legs of the White Dragon-san and Johnny-san stopped.

(…It may be a temporary magic living being, but it has faithfully recreated the Divine Beast in Hades… It has Quasi-God Rank power. For the people of the Mortal Realm, just hearing its intimidating roar would make them unable to move…) (Ira)

So it is God Rank pressure, huh.

The ones who can move here are me and…

“Run!” 

The one who kicked away the black hands restraining Anna-san and pushed her away was the Demon Lord, Cain.

“Guaaaaaah!” (Cain)

The armor of Cain made terrible cracking sounds and was smashed.

That’s the Sacred Treasure made by Noah-sama. 

There’s no way it would break…

“Oh my, Cain-san. To think you would protect the Light Hero. You are a devilkin like me, so I thought you would understand me…” (Nevia)

“Stop it!” (Anna)

Anna-san shouted.

— “[Light Sword]!” (Anna)

She shoots out the strongest light blade until now. 

This gigantic lazer-like attack slammed onto Orthos and exploded into a light cross.

(That’s the technique that Sakurai-kun used to defeat the Beast King.) (Makoto)

Anna-san was also saving her trump card.

If it is that attack, it should be able to…

After the blast dispersed, the figure of Orthos with one missing head and the unscathed Calamity Witch showed up.

The head that had bitten onto Cain had dropped.

He was at the side with his partially destroyed armor. 

His almost torn off arm was painful to look at, but it was healing while releasing light.

Looks like the Divine Protection of the armor Noah-sama made is not gone yet.

But it doesn’t look like he can participate in the battle anymore. 

“Grrrr…”

Orthos glares at us in anger with its remaining head. 

“Sun Magic: [Holy Fire]!” (Mel)

“Wind Spirits: [Wind Storm].” (Johnny)

The spells of the White Dragon-san and Johnny-san attack Orthos.

But they are barely scratches. 

“Spirit Arm – Water Magic: [Ice Isolation].” (Makoto)

The ice barrier spell I activated captured Orthos. 

But the ice cage soon cracked and was about to get destroyed.

— “[Light Sword]!” (Anna)

The attack of Anna-san dropped the one remaining head of Orthos. 

The black savage dog collapsed and dispersed in the wind.

Did we…defeat it?

At the time when Anna-san and I looked at each other…

“Damn it…” (Mel)

“Sorry.” (Johnny)

In that time, the White Dragon-san and Johnny-san had been captured by the black hands. 

(The two have been taken hostage…) (Makoto)

The situation was worsening by the second.

“Oh my, oh my, Orthos was my trump card… That’s a shame.” (Nevia)

The Calamity Witch didn’t seem that troubled by it.

She once again continued the barrage of saint rank spells.

Anna-san was intercepting them while still unsteady.

I also fight back with my Spirit Arm, but we are lacking the numbers by an overwhelming degree.

(Even so…) (Makoto)

(This is strange. Why isn’t she using the hostages to threaten you?) (Ira)

The lives of the White Dragon-san and Johnny-san are in the hands of Nevia.

It should be easy to threaten us. 

As if the Calamity Witch had read our emotions, she spoke. 

“I won’t kill the hostages. That would just make the Light Hero stronger after all.” (Nevia)

The Calamity Witch smiles.

She knows.

She knows about the special characteristic of the Light Hero Skill.

“Haaah…haaah…haaaah…” (Anna)

It seems like Anna-san doesn’t even have the energy to talk.

On the other hand, the Calamity Witch was smiling elegantly. 

“By the way, Takatsuki Makoto-san, I won’t put a single finger on you. You are the loved one of the Light Hero after all. It would be terrible if I were to accidentally kill you.” (Nevia)

“…”

The thought of rushing in crossed my mind, but it looks like she read me there.

“The one I will kill first is you, Light Hero. Until then, I won’t kill anyone else. Please become the first sacrifice without any worries.” (Nevia)

The Calamity Witch declared flatly. 

She isn’t underestimating her here. On the contrary, she is using the best method to defeat her. 

The Witch that has fused with the Fallen God.

There’s no weak points.

She isn’t lowering her guard at all.

(Strong…) (Makoto)

“Makoto-san…” (Anna)

When I look back, there’s the exhausted face of Anna-san.

It is my fault…

Because I pushed her into this battle. 

— “Spirit Left Hand.” (Makoto)

(Takatsuki Makoto!) (Ira)

The irritated voice of Ira-sama resonated, but I ignored it. 

I transformed both of my arms into Spirit Form.

If it is this much, it should be barely alright. 

The mana flowing into me increased by twice in an instant. 

The difficulty to control also shot up drastically.

A massive amount of mana rampages inside my whole body.

I can’t let my Clear Mind get cut off for even an instant. 

Anna-san and I intercept the constant barrage of dark magic. 

My mana comes from the Water Spirits.

Anna-san has an endless source of power from the sunlight.

But the God fused Calamity Witch was not running out of mana.

We were at a stalemate. 

“There’s no end~.” (Nevia)

Only the completely out-of-place leisure tone of the Calamity Witch resonated.

“Did you know? There were a lot of times in history where the Sun Oracle and the Moon Oracle would oppose each other.” (Nevia)

The conversation changed suddenly. 

What?

“And why is that?” (Makoto)

It looks like Anna-san doesn’t even have the energy to open her mouth, so I ask in her place. 

“There were many cases when Naia-sama would choose a devilkin as her Oracle… That’s all it was. Because of this, the Moon Oracle would be isolated from her peers. That’s the same for me. Even now, I am fighting all on my lonesome.” (Nevia)

“Why does the Moon Goddess choose an Oracle from within the devilkin instead of the humans?” (Makoto)

Is there a specific reason as to why she does this?

“…I am grateful to the Moon Goddess Naia-sama. If I had been born as a human, I might have been mindlessly defeating demons and devilkin, blindly valuing that illusion of a ‘peaceful’ world. It is exactly because I am a devilkin in the oppressed minority that I can aim for that true peaceful world…” (Nevia)

“True peace…?” (Makoto)

The Calamity Witch wishes for peace? 

“That’s right. I will Charm the people of the whole world and create a peaceful world ruled by Iblis…” (Nevia)

“…Isn’t that just domination?” (Makoto)

Basically conquering the world.

That really is Great Demon Lord-like.

“Splendid, right? If you tell the people that have been Charmed by me ‘you are happy right now’, they will be able to feel happy regardless of what treatment they once had. No misfortune. Don’t you think that’s the best kind of world?” (Nevia)

“Then why is everyone from our homeland suffering that much?!” (Anna)

Anna-san shouted as if her anger exploded.

It is true that the first time I met Anna-san, her master had been killed and she was despairing. 

The West Continent is far from being peaceful.

“My apologies. I was eventually going to Charm all the people of the West Continent too.” (Nevia)

“What a joke!” (Anna)

“You are lacking concentration… See? Caught.” (Nevia)

“Agh!” (Anna)

“Anna-san!” (Makoto)

The conversation might have been to distract us. 

Several black hands have wrapped around the Holy Sword of Anna-san. 

*Gigigi…*

I could hear a terrible metallic sound from it. 

“The Holy Sword is…!” (Anna)

The scream of Anna-san resonated. 

The Holy Sword Balmung was bent into a V shape.

(Again?!) (Makoto)

In the Fire Country, it was broken by Sa-san too. This Holy Sword really breaks often!

That’s not it, right now Anna-san is barehanded. 

She needs a replacement. 

Right, what about his weapon?! 

I look at the unconscious Cain.

He isn’t holding Noah-sama’s sword.

So it won’t do! 

“Then, this really is the end now.” (Nevia)

Miasma gathers around the Calamity Witch.

It is as much as the time when she used the Dark Magic: Double Headed Dog of Hades, Orthos, or even more than that.

(This is bad, this is bad, this is bad!) (Makoto)

Mel-san and Momo don’t have swords, and the katana of Johnny-san is simply a magic sword.

In the first place the White Dragon-san and Johnny-san have been captured by the black hands.

What can I do?

Something that’s comparable to a Holy Sword…

– “Hey! Have you forgotten about me, Makoto?”

It was as if a drop of water had fallen into my mouth after several days without drinking anything in a desert. 

A beautiful voice that seeped into my completely dried out heart.

It felt as if I hadn’t heard this voice for several years…the voice of Noah-sama.

(Eh?) (Ira)

The confused voice of Ira-sama reached me, but I unconsciously acted.

“Anna-san! Use this!” (Makoto)

I gave the sacred treasure dagger of the Goddess to the Light Hero-san.

“Got it, Makoto-san!” (Anna)

Anna-san takes the sacred treasure I gave her and takes a stance.

It may be a sacred treasure, but it looks like a plain dagger.

It is honestly pitiful looking compared to a Holy Sword.

“…You are going to fight with that?” (Nevia)

The Calamity Witch speaks as if worried about us.

— “Dark Magic: [Watchdog of Hades, Cerberus].” (Nevia)

What appeared was a jet black gigantic demonic dog with 3 heads. 

A Divine Beast again…

“Now then, please kill the Light Hero, Cerberus.” (Nevia)

The black mad dog rushes at us with unbelievable speed -towards Anna-san.

“Kuh!” (Anna)

Anna-san wraps mana around the dagger and shoots a [Light Sword].

The blade wave is small.

And that shone rainbow for an instant.

“““Eh?”””

Several voices of surprise overlap.

The Light Sword released from Balmung dropped one head of Orthos before.

It couldn’t wound the Calamity Witch at all.

And this time around…

The light blade shot from the dagger of Noah-sama…

Blew up all 3 heads of Cerberus.

The balck hands that were protecting the fused Calamity Witch were cut as if they were paper. 

And then, the body of the Calamity Witch was split in two.

“Kahah!” (Nevia)

The Calamity Witch puked out black blood and slowly collapsed.

    1. Ooh the battle is really intense! I’m glad that the author didn’t make anna become an OP character and one-shot Iblis by the power of love. At least if it only makes her stronger then it’s good enough. Also to think that Orthus and Cerberus come out in this chapter. I really like this type of author who uses Norse and Greek mythology as references for their plot.

      —– “Hey! Have you forgotten about me, Makoto?”
      It was as if a drop of water had fallen into my mouth after several days without drinking anything in a desert.
      A beautiful voice that seeped into my completely dried out heart.
      It felt as if I hadn’t heard this voice for several years…the voice of Noah-sama.
      (Eh?) (Ira)
      The confused voice of Ira-sama reached me, but I unconsciously acted.

      Noah saved the day again. As expected the one who suited to be his side is only his beloved goddess huh. Makoto certainly not really being useful without Noah. Also how the hell she able to communicate with Makoto now? Noah is suspicious indeed.

      That being said to think that Noah dagger can one-shot Iblis and his doggie. Even though Cain sword can’t penetrate his dark barrier. Didn’t noah said that they were made from the same thing? Well since Makoto did cut the hand of that shitty demigod alexander maybe its quality is different compared to the one that she gives to Cain.

      Anyway thanks for the hard work Reigokai-sama, its indeed has been a long journey. And now looks like the Past Arc will end soon so at least you can relax now

      1. Most likely the difference is due to the hero skill being used on top of it, also heck yeah I was right! Noah’s dagger is better then any stinking hero sword

      2. Yep I forgot to mention about anna fused her light hero skill with the dagger thus why she can kill Iblis instantly. If she used Cain’s sword instead maybe she could’ve done the same thing. Also, the dagger is a God Killer Blade that crafted by using the fragment of Old God King Chronos Schyte ofc it can’t be compared to the holy sword that crafted using the material from the mortal realm. It was categorized as a Sacred Treasure

      3. The God Killer Blade kills a God.

        The foreshadowing was staring us in the face the whole time, and yet I’m still surprised.

      4. Makoto is too weak to use a massive weapon like Cain’s sword, so Noah made up for the lack in hardware, by upgrading the software. The Dagger has several op enchantments, like never missing its target, being able to cut through anything, and Godkiller. It was enough to kill an ancient dragon, back when Makoto was only using it as a magic dagger, activate its divinity with a hero skill, or a prayer to a God, and it’s unstoppable.

      5. Either, she communicated with the Dagger, The Spirit Arm, Cain or maybe mysteriously the RPG Player skill

      6. Even if the base material is the same, I believe the way she created it and the spell involved make all the difference. Remember that Cain armor can do a tons of stuff like healing and self-recover etc. Makoto’s dagger probably made with only one single usage in mind, cut down everything, even if it’s a god

    1. Wait, what the fuck? I have so many questions in my mind, why does Naia pick a devilkin as her oracle? To be a sign of rebellion or something?

      Anyways, we have a background now about Nevia. Reminds me of a certain situation but I won’t comment on that. Also, even Cain is a devilkin huh? That was quite surprising too.

      So even awakened Anna is barely holding on against Iblis and Nevia. I taught it would be a blowout win but if I remember, in the original history Abel lost some limbs so I guess that’s fair. The other party members are useless tbh and even Makoto is not that strong because Dia can’t help. His transformed left hand though, he’s basically a partial spirit king in that form isn’t he?

      So now, how did Noah contact Makoto and why now? It was refreshing to hear her back but that wasn’t enough! I wonder what she’ll do next. Could she be the one to send Makoto back after this now that she can contact him now?

      Finally, the arc will be over after a long time. I’ve been missing our heroines in the present and now, the next move would be to return.

      1. The holy gods and demon gods are fighting for their respective races to rule, my bet is Naia is neutral and wants both sides to live equally hence she likes to choose a devilkin to try and bridge the gap. As for Noah well we already learned she set up preparations in his Crest for Ira so it’s likely she set somthing up in the dagger as well

      2. … isn’t she just bored? Like… if everything becomes peaceful, it will be a pain to watch, or something like that?

      3. Probably Naia usually picks from devilkin do remain neutral. Instead of picking races from either sides, she picks a mixed race so neither gods nor demons can accuse her of choosing a side.
        She’s already basically a hostage after all, why make more enemies?

        Noah is pretty powerful and old, she should know a lot of tricks she doesn’t usually let up.

      4. > I have so many questions in my mind, why does Naia pick a devilkin as her oracle?
        Maybe a harassment? She’s a hostage right?

    1. Nevia is really crazy. Charming everyone in order to bring world peace ? She is definitely not right in her head.
      Anyways, Cain is a devilkin ? Why not.
      I don’t know why, but I feel Makoto has been a little too weak. He is outclassed by Demon Lords and Iblis. He needs a power-up at the end of this arc.
      — “Dark Magic: [Black Hand Touch].”
      https://i.imgur.com/Hjt6bgd.jpg

      1. Hmmm, I beg to differ that he’s outclassed by demon lords. Give him enough preparation time and he could beat any of them aside from Astaroth. That guy is basically a cheat in mortal terms.

        1. Without Divinity ? Even with Dia, he is not a match Bifrons. Well, perhaps I exaggerated that he wouldn’t be able to defeat a Demon Lord, but Makoto would definitely have a hard time against a Demon Lord. Also, he would need to make a lot of sacrifice in order to win (mainly his lifespan).

          1. Remember that Bifrons said he had a hard time against a great fire spirit, Salamander, user and Undine is above that as explained by Ira. Plus, Makoto could probably summon more Undines back then if he didn’t waste the majority of his lifespan on the Comet Drop.

            If it was a death fight with no escape, Makoto with prep time and Bifrons with no help from a God to change day to night, his plan would probably go like this.

            > Makoto challenges Bifrons during high noon
            > Clear the skies by asking the Undines
            > Freeze him up and chop him with the dagger while he’s weakened.

            Wouldn’t be that simple but Makoto basically has infinite mana with the spirit arms on left and right.

          2. Yeah, but Makoto is basically forced to spend the majority of his lifespan against a Demon Lord.
            If it was against Zagan, what would be the outcome ?
            Also, how Makoto’s spirit arm works ? I don’t remember. Does it just gather mana from water spirits ?

          3. Lifespan is replenishable so it doesn’t matter in this case. We’ve seen Makoto farming lifespan so we know that’s not a problem. Zagan is weaker than Bifrons so the same case would probably happen. Summon lots of Undines, freeze the demon lord, and chop him up with the dagger or better yet, sacrifice lifespan to the dagger for a one hit kill like the one in Makkaren against an ancient dragon.

            Spirit arms basically makes his arm part spirit making him able to borrow the mana of the all of the world’s water.

          4. Okay, but I feel like it is shame that Makoto didn’t defeat a Demon Lord on his own in this arc. Maybe he could redeem himself by defeating Forneus in thr present.

          5. Oh he will. I can already see the despair in all of the heroes and oracles that went out to subjugate Iblis, not realizing he’s a god. And then, Makoto suddenly appears from a portal, swoops the Great Demon Lord’s ass down and assert his dominance!

          6. I’m joining this discussion late but to be fair its understandable for Makoto to be outclassed a bit here as hes up against beings that are basically the most powerful existences in the world short of literal divine beings. Also calling him out for needing divinity to fight Bifrons is kinda unfair as he was 2nd only to Astaroth who’s practically a demigod (I’m not counting Ibliss here) and even then his borrowed divinity (Ira synchro) was used to counter Bifrons borrowed divinity so it kinda balances out. Makoto is by no means weak as even right now he’s barely able to hold out Vs the currently strongest Demon in the world and that’s without divinity anymore

          7. Spirit arm doesn’t necessarily help him to use all world’s water. While it is theoretically true, storing such a large amount of mana and channeling it throught your body is practically impossible as a human, the limitations as a human and Human brain can break the body of the user if used recklessly, the worst case may be damaging your spirit/mana organ and brain.
            Makoto has been shown how using too much mana puts a toll on him. Also clear mind 100% is another reason along with Noah’s crest which help him too control such mana.

      2. The thing is, he needs to master Time spirit ASAP and learn the other type of Spirit Magic (like Dark and Light spirit magic). If he could do that he’s basically stronger than iblis and other demon lord

    1. Makoto has his dagger with a God Rank magic circle, a fragment of the scythe of the Old God king and with a magic circle in the mortal world. Mel-san and the Red Dragon trembled when they saw her, the material is the same, but their weapons are different, one has protection from a Goddess and the other part does not

    1. Thank you kami-sama.

      Guess this mean Iblis isn’t the final boss.

      Well I guess I’ll see you all in 10 chapters

  1. Wait, wat…?
    I need an explanation of this… Is it because the dagger of Makoto is a direct counter of Gods that’s why it was super effective against a God like Iblis?
    Cause not even when Makoto used it with Spirits, it would show that much power, and I would imagine a dagger of Noah would work best when clad with Spirits.
    Unless this is Noah playing 5d chess and she predicted this exact moment for a perfect counter dagger.

    1. Ohhh Reigokai, you still haven’t caught up with the raws. The author just updated a while ago! Anyways, Noah could lend her power by someone touching the dagger so maybe she interfered.

    2. As other people have said Noah can give divinity through her dagger.

      There is also the fact that while Makoto is powerful he is mostly borrowing power and his greatest asset is transforming his body to the next spirit king, but his stats are still shit, he is brute forcing by borrowing mana and stupid high control.

      Meanwhile Anna got stats, the power up versus god/demon Lords, the power up from the light and the power up from love, so it would be easier for her to use the power of the dagger whatever that ends up being

    3. When alexander used appraisal skill on him it was said that dagger was categorized as a god killer blade. It even can cut alexander’s hand who is a demi-god. I do think that the main reason why anna can easly cut Iblis is because she fused her light hero skill which already quasi-god rank with the god killer blade. Well, its just like Ira said maybe noah already predicted all of this. Damn she’s certainly on the same rank, or maybe even above Athena

      1. Tnx for chapter. If there’s 10 more. How about pile it up 1st then release it in one go. Then you can focus translating other novels until the next arc.

    4. Well, that dagger is originally part of the titan king(?)’s weapon (iirc that’s a scythe?) So I think originally, it is capable of killing gods themselves. Add the light hero’s power to the mix and Nevia(Iblis) in their quasi god form is simply no match.

    5. That’s what’s amazing for Noah… No one can predict her actions… We just have to believe in her like makoto did.

      So…… Hail!!! Hail!!! Noah!! 🤣

    6. And also, would this count as a spoiler? Next chapter’s afterword said this so the chapter won’t actually end in 10 chapters.

      Author’s comment:
      Next time, the end of Chapter 10 (epilogue). It was long…….

    7. It might be like this – power flows more efficiently through a better conductor. Having a holy blade allowed her (or any hero) to more efficiently channel the power they received compared to a regular sword. But the quality of the dagger is simply beyond compare to the holy blade – something mortals shouldn’t possess. Something that could never be crafted in the mortal realm.

  2. No resting yet! A new chapter just came out a few hours ago!!

    Thank you for translating the entire series.

  3. IIRC, the dagger is anti-god, and is on par/better than a holy weapon. Noah’s 1,004 years ahead of us

  4. Thanks for your hard work 😀
    The end of this arc is coming!? Oh thank merciful Noah T^T

  5. Waaaaaa!!!! Don’t know where to start, what a cool chapter!
    Divine disappointment doing divine disappointment, Nevia going all big and clever demon lordish, Makoto giving up on his lifespan as usual and Noah saving the day (surely because of scheming something)…
    But we caught up with the raws!!!
    So we have to wait one week to see what happens next and two months and a half to finish the arc..
    At least, cliff-kun has been bent in two like this lousy holy sword, for now…
    Thanks again reigo-sama!

  6. I was really wondering why did Makoto not use the divine dagger that could cut anything. So he forgot…

    1. I think that his base stats for combat still stnk, so he would not get past the saint level black hands.

    1. The battle in the past has reached the end, and it wasn’t a disappointment.
      Anna barely managed to win, and, the supposed to be the legendary party was totally useless. They didn’t even do anything. Makoto was the one that broke the tower, and no one, I think, would have been able to do it. I don’t know how was the fight in the “original time line, but without Makoto, even when everyone been motivated by their own revenge I don’t know if they would be able to do it for themselves.

      There’s a nee chapter and if google translator didn’t miss it, it say that the next chapter would be the epilog of the arc.

  7. Thanks for the chapter Reigokai – sama but there still one new chapter. 😁

    —– “Hey! Have you forgotten about me, Makoto?”
    It was as if a drop of water had fallen into my mouth after several days without drinking anything in a desert.
    A beautiful voice that seeped into my completely dried out heart.
    It felt as if I hadn’t heard this voice for several years…the voice of Noah-sama.
    (Eh?) (Ira)

    Anyways I’m waiting for this….😂 Me appreciating the first goddess.

    HAIL!!! HAIL!!!! HAIL!!! NOAH! HAIL NOAH!

  8. getting irritated at that nevia

    they should’ve killed her long before

    sigh whenever a villain becomes a friend chances are, they’re gonna be nerfed

    cause Nevia is being a bitch, not gonna be surprised if she’s gonna become an ally, heh it’s the favorite of the author after all, make a character have a bitchy attitude first then change them, also almost all the bitchy characters here are relevant

    1. They had reasons but yeah. Its mostly going from “I hate you” to “makoto marry me”.

      But Nevia is blacklisted here. Her mind is broken and have a twisted way of looking at things.

        1. I think I was one of those guys lol.

          But I have retracted my stance since Nevia is a few screws loose.

          And Furiae is totally against whatever Nevia did.

  9. Noah-sama lang sakalam.

    If makoto master his sun magic (elementary) like what he did to his water magic (elementary). Will he doit like that?

    In the original timeline, Momo was hailed as great magic user but now she was more like a baggage in the fight.
    Did she become a magic user because the magic in the future degraded overtime?

    Btw. I dont hate her being useless, i just wish she could cast a few magic to help the frontline
    Thanks for the update

    1. Well demigods where fighting. What do you expect a 12 year old recently transformed into a vampire do?

      Well she could cheer but eh…

      Or maybe she just adds morale.

      Also if ever she died, may the Gods both evil and good protect the world from Makoto.

  10. So we reached the raws. Oh well.

    Hahaha Makoto could have just gave Anna the dagger to begin with.

    That would have ended faster and be like “eh?” all the time.

    If Nevia died, then the charm will break. So all of her “subject” would wake up and realize that they dont like each other. Leading to the fall of Laphraoig.

    But Im sure Johnny will save that one girl.

    Makoto would be sad if that girl died.

  11. Hmm I was waiting for the moment Makoto tried converting more then just his right arm into a spirit though I wonder if this left arm is permanent too, and as i thought Makoto completely forgot he had his own chest weapon from Noah the whole time. Another interesting bit is this info about Naia the moon goddess choosing devilkin, I think Naia would rather both sides balance out (humans and demons) instead of 1 ruling the other for 1000 years like they have been for who knows how long now. I’m starting to think that Noah has been planning this since we met her though I doubt helping Makoto survive/succeed the past is the end goal and is likely part of the process. 10 more chapters huh, I’m betting 1 or 2 to finish this fight then the rest to wrap things up for Makoto’s return to the present

    1. The newest chapter came out and to the best of my understanding of the MTL, it said there’s only 2 more chapters in this arc.

  12. Wait, we’re updated? Theory time!
    Since we last left off with Sa-san and Lucy, they were clearing Laberintos. That’s basically loading chekov’s gun.

    I bet Makoto’s gonna freeze himself (and maybe Anna?????wait no, she’s the founder of the sun kingdom) at the bottom level of Laberintos and be the final treasue Lucy and Sa-san finds when they clear it 🙂

  13. balck hands – typo
    intercepting them while still unsteady. – also feels like a typo, verb is missing

    1. “The balck hands that were protecting the fused Calamity Witch were cut as if they were paper”

    1. The fight was really intense. And it’s probably the most difficult fight for Makoto. He even go for double spirit arm and it’s still not enough to support the party.

      And Noah’s voice in this crisis was very helpful. I can’t deny it, she may looks sketchy, but she’s still a very helpful and kind Goddess to Makoto compare to another Goddess. I understand why he become Noah’s simp. Lmao

  14. So even Cain is a devilkin? I guess that’s why he was previously staying in the Moon Country. Anyways so Naia apparently tends to choose devilkin as her Oracle. I guess she sees a bit of herself in them. They are a minority oppressed by both humans and demons and at best they are ignored or shunned while Naia is a foreign goddess given to the Olympians as a hostage so she probably also has similar feelings of isolation as the devilkin so she’s giving them some help.

    I also said “Again?!” when the sword Balmung got bent again. I wonder if it’s going to be a running joke that Balmung gets bent?

    Makoto finally heard Noah’s voice again. It could be possibly be just an auditory hallucination of Makoto’s or maybe the area has become so unstable from fighting Nevia/Iblis that Noah can manage to send Makoto a message or maybe even one of the Holy Goddesses bent the rules a little bit to let Noah send a message to Makoto. Eir would be a likely candidate since she’s probably been made aware that Makoto is her ally since he keeps sacrificing souls to her and Ira may have informed her about what’s happening plus she’s a good friend of Noah so she can probably meet her easily enough and Noah can also send information into her past self and has probably also learned what’s happening and convinced Eir to help her send a message to Makoto.

    Oh so now Makoto can turn both his arms into spirits. I wonder if he’ll end up having to turn more body parts into spirits later? Like a spirit leg or spirit eye. I’m sure his harem would be curious about him being able to turn a certain body part into a spirit too…

    Well the dagger is classified as a God Killer Blade while Cain’s equipment isn’t so I guess they were processed differently even though they’re made of the same material. I guess that would explain why Cain’s equipment can only work against spells only up to Saint Rank while Makoto’s dagger was able to cut Nevia in half.

  15. Wait, there’s still 10 chapters for the end of the arc? I mean, I kinda looks like it is about to end in 2 ou 3 tho? Is something more going to happen perhaps?

  16. Thanks for the Chapter (≧▽≦)

    Nani?!? Great demon lord’s defeated just like that?! And the arc is over in 10 more chapters ?!

  17. Ira is such an unreliable goddess. I’m not surprised Makoto remained steadfast in his faith towards Noah

  18. Thanks for the chapter and finally this arc is ending. Now the waiting game begins? Guess see you all in the next ten chapters??

  19. Ding dong the witch is dead!

    Good thing too, she was quite insane. No wonder Furiae got shunned as her reincarnation.

  20. Thanks for the chapter~!
    Fun thing everyone, today, raw chapter 288 is updated.

    R(reader): I wonder, this last boss battle lacks tension…
    A (author): That’s why this time I give it a little tension. There’s a feeling of tension……right?

    R: There’s someone inside [RPG Player] right?
    A: The author gradually felt that way

  21. hello, been awhile commenting..
    too bad i wish Makoto do Double Spirit Fusion where he fuse with both water & destiny spirit to become spirit weapon
    of course after his restrictions removed.

  22. Thanks for the chapter ^^

    I think Noah somehow know from the very beginning that Makoto will face against a god/iblis, thats why she gave that god killer dagger to Makoto.

  23. Today ch.288 was released, atleast we still can read one more before the waiting period start. haha

    1. I have to wait… every week just for one chapter of this good shit?! NOOOOOOOOOoo… okay sure why not.

  24. Fuji-yan “[Godly Strike], [Indestructible], [Beheading Demon], [Mana Resonance], [Spirit Resonance]…there’s also a lot of abilities that I have not heard of before” (chap 6)

    we seeing how strong this enchantments on makotos dagger, too bad makoto doesn’t really abuse it and most of the time it is used more of a rosary for his prayer for noah or a wand for channeling mana

      1. mana is not really the problem here… if it is mana he have almost infinite mana thanks to spirits and what noah told him is he doesn’t have swordskill like the hero of light to unleash an attack equal to what anna used.

        but that is not what I am trying to say….
        makoto can move water to a speed that even anna and cain is having trouble to keep up especially underwater,

        so can’t makoto use something like water whips in avatar the last airbender and let the whip hold the dagger and attack the enemy?

        or make a giant water prison and water depth to hold the enemy and use water jet on the dagger

        he only use the dagger for sneak attack and for killing goblins

  25. *Sees ‘will be ending’*
    *GASP*
    ‘…the arc’
    (It doesn’t say novel..!)
    LET’S GOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    1. If it also means the novel is also ending then sad
      Good novel tho
      ~CHANGE MY MIND~
      Down in de comments
      If you could you would be hated by the readers (maybe)

  26. Finally caught with Japanese version. So TL will be slower. Hope original author will write faster.

  27. As expected from god-killer dagger.
    It’s probably the same one Cronus used against Uranus.
    Also Balmung is more like holy trash than holy sword.

  28. Thanks for the chapter.
    So there were devilkins before Nevia charmed her own kingdom.
    It seems that there is monster with some “taste” through history then….
    Do all the devilkins have beatiful/handsome faces ?

  29. Finally caught up, huh? It’s been a ride. I don’t get why people were whining about this arc being too long. Time Travel and recontextualizing the past has been great fun.

    In the end, was all this dancing on Noah’s palm? I vaguely recall there being a rule that only Takki using the dagger would bring out it’s effects. Noah can certainly have modified it somehow, and she does have a way of affecting mortals that hold it.

    Also, is this Nevia or Naia? Or is Naia doing something to reincarnate herself into mortal form? Now that I think about it, I do recall it being said that the Calamity Witch and Great Demon Lord were a pair. So that was true, then…?

  30. I’m dying to get through this arc. Not because it’s bad but I’m excited to see what’s next you know. Seeing if there’s something about when “anna” disappears like in the past. What is going to happen to mel if she just sinks back into the dungeon. So far Cain is still alive. Johnny is just a hoe 😂 and what will makoto be able to do. Is this all just a heroic act to help everyone selflessly. Does he return to the future. Does he make a life in the here and now. Ahhh it’s been 3 days I’m dying. I’ve dropped many novels, but most to the point of catching up with the author but I love this one so much. I’m pretty sad I didn’t find this one a little later so I could have a lot more to read off hand 😅 I can’t help but be impatient. P.S. Also I want to see if his divination is really gone also he now has both spirit arms. What’s Noah been doing… and why the heck has ira not passed messages back and forth for him through time!

  31. I don’t read novels by week and instead tend to bulk read novels that are already translated. I found this novel about a week and a half ago and just caught up. I wanted to say thank you so much to the translated for the hard work they have put in and I hope everyone here has a good day!

  32. Makoto you … Chapter 289 left me with a strange aftertaste … I want to read it translated well and not with Google translate … Author you are really wicked … this work is really beautiful … I beg you, Sensei, get Chapter 290 out as soon as possible …

  33. Does anyone know if the novel is nearing it’s end?

    Like, yeah, there are many things which need to be done, but when I read the twitter comments on the recent chapters of the novel, some show their gratitude to the author as if the next chapters would be the last for the novel…

    It’s really making me nervous, because I thought the novel would go on for an very long time, so does anybody know if the author is just taking an long break after this arc or ending the novel completly? Afterall he called this arc the “final arc”…

    1. What? He called this arc the “final one” ? Noo I am getting scared, I want to enjoy this for a long while… This novel is so much better than I expected.

      Perhaps Anna will return with him and because of that the war will end stupidly fast?

  34. Several black hands have wrapped around the Holy Sword of Anna-san.

    *Gigigi…*

    I could hear a terrible metallic sound from it.

    “The Holy Sword is…!” (Anna)

    The scream of Anna-san resonated.

    The Holy Sword Balmung was bent into a V shape.

    (Again?!) (Makoto)

    It would be better if he says “Again?!” loud and make everybody confused lmao

  35. Imagine, all he had to do was give the dagger to Anna from the start and it would have been over in a day

  36. Several black hands have wrapped around the Holy Sword of Anna-san.

    *Gigigi…*

    I could hear a terrible metallic sound from it.

    “The Holy Sword is…!” (Anna)

    The scream of Anna-san resonated.

    The Holy Sword Balmung was bent into a V shape.

    (Again?!) (Makoto)

    In the Fire Country, it was broken by Sa-san too. This Holy Sword really breaks often!

    It would be better if he say “Again?!” loudly lol

  37. I just noticed that Makoto’s dagger is a god killing blade, so it should be more effect on the Demon Lord than a holy sword since he himself is a god.
