Chapter 68: Depressing Night

Took a while because complicated talk about geographic positions gives me headaches x.x and Tomoki also gives me headaches. Double the trouble.


 

In the border of the world an otherworldler moved, but there were still no ripples occurring in sight.

At that time, Rembrandt, who is known in the world as the Merchant of Tsige, was tackling an opportunity.

The implementation of Stella Fort’s capture plan by Limia and Gritonia.

In the battle that was spread out in two directions, the two heroes from both countries increased their morale. Moreover, because of the blessing of the goddess that had reappeared once more, the hyuman’s position was gaining advantage.

The Goddess’ blessing.

That is what could be called the basis of the big power the hyumans possess in this world.

Before the battle, they report to the Goddess about the beginning of it and the representatives of the troops do a speech. The Goddess confirms both powers and offers divine protection to the one she accepts the most, and the one she doesn’t, receives a curse. More specifically speaking, the one that was approved of will have all of his forces doubled in strength and the one who isn’t will have it halved.

In short, in the case the speech flows into a blessing situation, putting it in numbers, the distance in strength between the two powers will be of four times. If there is a big difference in military force it may be another story, but if it is normal, the difference is despairing.

That’s why, in this world, the winner and loser of a battle between hyumans was normally decided in the speech step. Because the result was already clear, it was normal for the halved side to surrender. For the sake of being approved by the Goddess, the people pursued beauty and have also made clothes and pompous armor that ignored utility just for the speech with the Goddess. The one she approves is the one that she finds the most beautiful. The royalty and nobles research the appearance of the people that have won in the speech, it couldn’t be helped that there were some who went mad because of this. It was directly connected to the power of the country and the family after all.

But that is only the case of fights between hyumans.

In the case it is not between hyumans, the story changes completely. In the speech with the Goddess, she would provide the hyumans with divine protection no questions asked. Even if we count the times in the past where there was a fight the hyumans didn’t receive blessings, there were no times where demi-humans obtained blessings. Not a single time. Against an opponent that was doubled in power with no questions asked, the demon race, originally known as demi-humans, were being overwhelmed because of their numerical inferiority. Being pressed by the necessity, the demon race began to assertively research strategy and tactics and obtained know-how numerous times higher than that of hyumans, yet it still continued with the hyumans having the advantage. Before the Goddess’ disappearance, the demon race was having those kind of fights.

When the Goddess disappeared, obviously, the speeches became pointless. Even if they made the preparations and express their desire for a speech, they didn’t obtain no blessings nor curses.

The 4-times blessing was now not showing effects no matter if the enemy was hyuman or demi-human. The demon race called a big amount of demonic beasts and demi-humans. Increasing their power to the very limit, they marched towards a war against the hyumans. They simply went straightforwardly from the front to crush them, pulverize them with power and numbers. The hyumans that were always been on the crushing side, were now being done in by the demon race. Victory, victory, victory, victory. The momentum didn’t stop. They even destroyed one of the five major powers and the demon race was able to obtain large amounts of lands.

The Stella Fort is in the southern tip of that destroyed major power, Elision.

It’s a solid fortress that has been attacked numerous times by Limia from the south and Gritonia from the east.

If they have the troops ignore this place and go north, in their march they will be obstructed by an inconvenient large river and swamp as well as a mountain range. It is not impossible but there will be interferences by the demon race. In essence, for them to be able to attack the demon race’s domain with a big army, they have to capture the Stella Fort or they won’t be able to advance. That there is a courteous route leading directly to the fortress for both countries is one of the ingenuities of the demon race, and there were some intelligent hyumans in the group that had begun to notice this. Even so, with all the lives used for the battles in this fortress, it took away Limia and Gritonia’s reasoning and recognition of this strategy.

The symbol of the hated demon race. A fortress that they have to capture no matter what. The Stella Fort is that kind of existence.

“The impregnable fortress. The devil’s fortress that has killed uncountable hyumans huh. Well, it is no surprise you would want to capture it as soon as possible. The descent of the heroes and the revival of blessings, because of those, it is no wonder they are now planning another attack in the once hopeless battlefield”

With the evening passing, the curtains of darkness descend and the shadow of the fortress rises. Before the gate you could see the shadows of the vast amount of troops deployed that spread because of the burning bonfires. A number of shadows gather.

“Yeah. There are some scholars that say this is a trap of the demon race. But even so, this place has sipped too much blood. Limia and the empire can’t back down anymore”

Another shadow stands along the shadow that said those words as if complying with it. Those words had a sense of surprise and in a part of it, self-derision as well. The voice that was slightly low came from a slim woman.

“I think that attacking from other places is also an option though. Well, I support this plan as well, there are numerous friends of mine “resting” in this place after all”

The shadow that is on standby a few ways in the back also opens his mouth. A man. He is in favor of bringing down this fortress, but he clearly states that this is an emotional decision of his.

“There are also an uncountable amount of knights that have fallen. This place is an unavoidable point we have to pass in our process to defeat the demon race”

Again, the two shadows, this time it is the shadow that is behind the girl who talked first. The owner of the voice is again a male. Because of the sound of rubbing metal, one could tell that the man is wearing armor.

“4-times blessing and the hero huh. I understand that we are in an advantageous position but… I just can’t brush off this bad feeling”

“What a stupid thing to say. Soon there will a dinner assembly with the empire. Your bad feeling will come true”

From the lined up shadow, an incredulous voice is directed.

“Ahaha. I didn’t feel this way with the spider so it may be needless anxiety. It could be because I just don’t like the empire’s hero called Tomoki”

“Who knows Hibiki, I saw him as a good young man though. He seemed like he was quite young but level-headed. An intrepid youth, is what I thought”

“Ah, I concur with Wudi. For me, he looked like a favorable person. He was a youth that has a strange attraction to him. Even though he looks like that, he can use a variety of magic tools and in the battlefield he can hunt tens to hundreds of demons. As a hero, he is incredible”

“We don’t know Hibiki’s taste after all. If I hadn’t met with Hibiki first, I may have become that boy’s sword. I felt the same majesty of a hero I felt from you”

“I… I am in the same mind as Hibiki. I didn’t like something about him. I feel like that person is different from Onee-chan”

The girl called Hibiki, thinking that she would be disproved by everyone else, one voice of support called out. A shadow that is smaller than the other shadows. A voice that one could tell it is young.

“So the only ally I have is Chiya-chan huh~. There’s no need to worry, I won’t be putting my personal feelings in the battlefield. Then let’s go for dinner and then sleep. We are going to attack at late night right?” (Hibiki)

Late at night, or more like, doing a dinner assembly just a few hours before? How relaxed, is what Hibiki thought. Is it because that is just how much they expect from her and the other hero? Or is it because they are confident in that so called 4-times blessing?

It is also for doing a last confirmation of the strategy, but under the pretext of a dinner. Feeling a bad presentiment combined with the hero of Limia who she still doesn’t know much about, Otonashi Hibiki looks once more at the bonfire.

(I will bring down that place. The demon general is a power type giant with 4 hands. We and the empire troops, no matter which group meets it, the heroes will reunite at where the demon general is and strike this huh. It is predicted that the military force of our combined troops is approximately five times that of the demon race side. Moreover, if we count the halving of their power, it is essentially 20 times? I don’t understand the numbers in battle but 20 times is a number that brings peace of mind. But well~ the fortress’s intensity is not halved, so it is not like we have an advantage in terrain. The 4-times is something that counts as a whole right? Our side is doubled and the other is halved. So then, if the demon race just negates that “halve”, the advantage will only be of double) (Hibiki)

In terms of tactics, the demon race is better. She remembers those words from a meeting. There is no need to even do a final confirmation. Getting the blessing, attacking from two directions and if the top appears, use the heroes to defeat him. A simple thing. For some reason, because of the wishes of the empire, the attack was turned to a night assault.

The demon race knows the hyumans movements by a certain degree, is what Hibiki thinks. In that case, there should be some sort of action that differs from all the situations before, and yet, there is no reaction in sight. Ominous.

In this world there is magic. If so, even without having cannons in the fortress they should be able to suddenly rain attacks resembling those of cannons from their side. More like, I am overthinking things, is what she thought. Taking into account the applications, she can’t even estimate what kind of magic they have.

That kind of uneasiness is probably what was making Hibiki have a bad presentiment.

“Welcome, Limia’s hero-sama”

Approaching the pavilion, the pondering Hibiki was greeted by a cheerful voice.

“Ara, isn’t this princess Lily? Thank you for going to the trouble of meeting me. I am honored to be invited in this occasion” (Hibiki)

The smiling Hibiki stops her thoughts and speaks out her previously arranged words by reflex. For the sake of not being discourteous, her companions and the nobles accompanying them were taught a few things. The girl kept in mind to use polite words.

The other party is the princess of Gritonia, a major power that possesses at least the same scale in influence as Limia Kingdom. No matter if she is a hero, as an individual, this person is not someone you can act impolitely. Hibiki felt nervous.

“I am of the same sentiment. Sorry for having called you out here. We have prepared a little service to you and the people that will be your comrade in arms. This night please recuperate your energies” (Lily)

While being perplexed by the rare event of having a royalty guide her, the hero of Limia follows the girl’s steps.

In the round table that was prepared, there were already a number of people seated.

When they saw Hibiki’s arrival, those people stopped their conversations, stood up and met the princess and the girl being guided by her.

“Hi! It is before the nap but, let’s enjoy the meal without minding about ranks!”

“Now, Hibiki-sama, this way please”

Following the princess, Hibiki is assaulted by a melancholic feeling. It is because of the words that were directed at her. Just how light they were.

Furthermore, the empire is strangely not saying anything about what was said, making her feel sickened. That her own companions didn’t show any sort of displeasure was also eerie.

As expected, Hibiki was guided to the vacant seat directly beside the seat of where the empire hero, Iwahashi Tomoki, is. There were no other places to sit beside this one. To refuse the seat that the princess has guided her to would be an act of impoliteness. Moreover, the ones who said there is no need to mind about ranks, are people that don’t forgive impoliteness.

While sighing in her mind, Hibiki shows the princess a well-made fake smile. And faces Tomoki.

“Thanks for your consideration, Tomoki-kun. It will be a night warfare but, let’s both do our best” (Hibiki)

Common words. Hibiki already knew Tomoki was younger than her even when it is the first time they have met, so she decided to call him with the suffix –kun.

“We are used to night battles so it is okay. We might even be able to cover Limia’s side as well” (Tomoki)

“That is reassuring. We don’t have that much experience in large scaled night battles so I am expecting much from your side” (Hibiki)

“Moreover, this is a mid-boss fight. Let’s end this in one sweep and have the Goddess praise us. Ah, I wonder if she will give us more powers” (Tomoki)

“Now that you mention it, the blessing speech is done by Tomoki-kun right? Will I be able to meet the Goddess again? I haven’t met her since the first time, and there are a lot of things I want to ask her” (Hibiki)

Hibiki felt like the situation she is experiencing is different from the situation the Goddess herself explained, so she wants to meet her again. Even though she has power and divine protection, the only time she has talked with her is in the very beginning.

She felt an uncomfortable feeling at Tomoki’s “mid-boss” words, so Hibiki changed her thoughts to the Goddess and maintains her smile.

“Ah, also, what level are you now Hibiki?” (Tomoki)

Tomoki suddenly asks Hibiki her level. The other members were being guided by the chamberlains, taking their seats and respectively chat and bring the food that is served into their mouths. Hibiki is also taking part in the meal but can’t properly taste the food. She wasn’t in the mood of enjoying the meal.

The only one that looked uncomfortable was Chiya who had the same opinion about having an unpleasant feeling of Tomoki. And a girl from the empire’s side that was about the same age as Chiya, began talking to her and bit by bit she indulges herself or so it seems.

“Me? I am 430 now” (Hibiki)

“I see. I have become 605 now” (Tomoki) <Take in mind, there is no note of who is talking, I do those myself. I seriously thought this was a talk about age between the two lolis>

“Heh~ that’s impressive. And that’s how much you have participated in the battlefield” (Hibiki)

“Yeah. That’s why, Hibiki-san, you may be 3 years older than me but, could you please not call me with –kun? There is no need to go as far as calling me with –sama, -san is fine maybe, when talking to someone that is stronger” (Tomoki)

(Who’s the one that said there’s no need to mind about ranks?!)

Hibiki desperately tries to hold back the tsukkomi she wanted to do. The 100% fake smile on her face was now showing signs of crumbling.

“I-I am sorry. I am still using the customs of the other side to talk. From now on I will be careful” (Hibiki)

“Nah, I don’t mind it though. Also, I am sorry but, I don’t like formal speech” (Tomoki) <Wow Tomoki wtf, did you check your tampon?>

(I am just adding –desu. There’s no way I would expect formal speech from you who is saying “domo” and “ore”! And also, if you don’t mind it, don’t mention it! Isn’t it fine to just let it go then?!) (Hibiki)

“I don’t mind about formal speech anyways, so it’s okay. It is fine to just talk the way you like” (Hibiki)

“Is that so? Iya, that’s a big help. I was insecure of when I would mess up you see. We are going to do a swift attack on a demon general today, so I was thinking about having Hibiki-san and the others accompany us from the beginning, how about it?” (Tomoki)

In a sense, this is a conversation between the representatives of both countries. This is a link for diplomacy, is what Hibiki thinks. Even so, she felt like her head would split from anemia because of his words.

If this were the other side, the other world, such a kouhai taking that kind of attitude would get a proper sermon. Or could it be that the current middle school students are all like this? If that is the case, she is grateful to have been able to come to a different world. There is no better blessing than this.

“… It is a pleasant proposal, but we have to encourage the people of Limia and participate in battle. When the time comes, I will rush okay?” (Hibiki)

While feeling her own expression twitching, Hibiki was somehow able to pass the dinner assembly, also called as the patience test.

Just one person, Chiya, was preoccupied by Hibiki’s state. When the dinner assembly ended and they left the pavilion, they returned to their own camps and the girl worriedly approached Hibiki.

“Hibiki onee-chan, are you okay? Should I serve you tea to calm down?” (Chiya)

“Chiya-chan, geez, just how much of a good girl are you! If that idiot were to have this much courtesy, the story would have been a bit different!” (Hibiki)

The other members didn’t understand why Hibiki was angry and could only tilt their heads.

“Hibiki, could it be that you don’t like the food of the empire?”

“If that was the case, you should have told the other party or it will conversely turn as discourteous Hibiki-dono”

Hearing the words that were way off the mark, as expected, even she had to stop her steps.

“Eh?! Just how serious are you saying that?! How come the conversation didn’t turn into how rude that Tomoki was to me, isn’t that weird you guys?!” (Hibiki)

Chiya also agrees with Hibiki and nods several times.

“W-What is it you are so angry for? Tomoki-dono went through the trouble of holding a comfortable dinner assembly, said that he would provide us support in the fight, moreover, he casually pointed out to Hibiki about using –kun on a higher ranked person. And after that, wasn’t his trustworthy proposition nice?”

Naval, the woman warrior that Hibiki considers as a companion the most in the battlefield, releases words as if counting a short story.

“What were you seeing on that full-throttle rude machine to reach such conclusions?!” (Hibiki)

Hibiki is astonished by her own companion’s words. Even Bredda and Wudi, who normally warn Naval when she says too much, were agreeing with Naval’s words.

(What is this? Are you telling me everyone turns weird when they meet him?) (Hibiki)

Even so, Chiya and I were alright. Just what in the world is going on? Hibiki didn’t think she would have to ponder about how to talk with her companions in order for them to understand. She began thinking there was some sort of reason for it.

“Well, let’s leave that aside for now. I got a bit out of control. Okay, let’s sleep. The fight is close after all. Chiya-chan, let’s sleep together” (Hibiki)

Pursuing this point at present will not get anywhere. When they sleep and wake up, the war will have begun already. She understands that she should not bring unneeded discord.

When Hibiki returns to her bedroom with Chiya, she was deeply moved by how easily she was able to fall asleep.

  2. Thanks for the chapter!

    Looks like the story’s setting up for a mid or post-battle betrayal of Hibiki’s allies save for the chibi-ko Chiya to Gritonia. Will our intrepid protagonist make it back in time to do a eleventh-hour save of our heroine?

      1. I’d go with her not being full hyuman, like a half or something.

        It’s probably related to her high magic power as well as her almost getting sacrificed.

    Still… I do wonder why Chiya isn’t affected? I mean, she’s a girl. And the demon eyes are supposed to work better on females from what I do recall. I know Hibiki could be immune due to the bug’s blessing, but come on? Tomoki even has Bredda under his control, and Bredda is a guy. Geeze… Makoto needs to reappear soon. I couldn’t even get a proper clue from trying to read the raws translated with Google translator.

    1. We’re not sure if she’ll get along with Makoto either. Stated in one of the previous chapters, the merchant leader (forgot his name) also said that he believes in Tomoki’s personality more than hers since his was more believable. Also, she was chosen by ‘bug’ as well. It might not be as simple as some people will believe.

      Like

      1. His name is Rembrandt, The reason Tomoki’s personality is easier to believe is due to his drive being greed and lust. Hibiki on the other hand is driven by her duty of being a hero, something no merchant can understand. Even I can’t believe her personality. However, she is how she is. I don’t think she could get along with him due to the fact he was rejected by the bug. As she doesn’t see how the bug mainly judges by looks, she would think there is a different reason the bug refused Makoto the right to be a hero.

Since Hibiki and Chiya both have ridiculously high magic, they were unaffected. Or maybe its because Hibiki is a human, and Chiya might be one of thoose traunts.

    1. Hello there, I love the manga that your avatar comes from (I love Nukos). Still, there is a reason she’s the goddess of that world. She is one of creation, therefore she creates life (the hyumans). However, it doesn’t mean that she has to be nice to the world’s earlier residents, such as the Dragons and the Demi-humans. I agree that’s it’s unfair for her to be the goddess of any world, let alone the sole deity. However, life’s not fair.

      1. nah, she´s not of creation. She´s most likely just some Administrative. The gods of creation are those who create the worlds, she´s just some low rank goddes who´s take the role of a parasite sinking her fangs into a world no one else cared about.
        Like some Berioukrat with god complex who thinks he can get away with everything, just because he´takes care of things no one take interest in.
        You cna see that, at the way how she just kidnapped two humans without the permission of the HIGHER gods or the gods of earth.
        You now what also could very well be?
        that the stupid bug gets JUDGED and Makoto got taken as a witness about her cruel crimes against otherworldlers.
        And since everybody here things, the hyumans wont get a bleassing, i think that might be reason, bug is getting judged and can´t play the unfair referee.

    I think he will get along with the female hero fine. She is pretty reasonable and they knew each other back on Earth I think.

    As for the male hero? Well they probably will not get along. However, I doubt the MC will pick a fight with him. In the end the MC is strong indepentant enough that he can just walk away if the hero is too much trouble.

    1. Meh, they heros are not even half as strong as is weakest folllower, so he can´t be much trouble and i think that those fucked up Demon Eyes shit powers and the way he uses it, will rub our MC the wrong way, the same as it does us. So i bet Makoto will whoop his as really badly and once his bloody corpse.. i mean the half dead remains of the hero will have a change of heart and maybe stop using the demon eyes. Also i hope someone kills the girls he raped beforehand, cause i really dislike rape-victim characters, those just make your heart ache really badly.

  16. Personally I’d like to see MC as soon as possible. But maybe that story’s going to get interesting as well. At least we’ll see the summoner of Makoto – who knows, maybe she (I anticipate that it might be Chiya) is the next follower of Makoto? Or even that Hibiki switch changes? Although I deem it pretty impossible, but…

      1. Well, someone intercepted him, right? I’m not sure about the Goddess, rather someone in pinch, desperate (and strong!) enough to try and summon such a strong being as Makoto or a dragon. Tomoe said it’s either the Goddess or a dragon, but I think it’s not limited to only them, maybe there’s other major force. After all, the golden light seems to be a sign of a higher existence and the fact, the known ones are only aforementioned, doesn’t exclude other possiblities.

      2. Well, it is possible but only at the condition that she is somewhere (or in a situation) where makoto can get his link with his followers cut, in which case it is very unlikely that she will be able to summon him.

  17. How this battle ends will be a break it or make it thing for me, it will dictate if I keep reading or stop.

    2 things that are more or less guaranteed:
    1- The Goddess will not show up to grant her blessing or she (maybe some other Deity) will grant it to the demons.
    2- Tomoki will Leroy Jenkins anyway and lead the alliance into a defeat.

    That’s fine, but the problem is what I believe to be another likely scenario: Tomoki is a coward, he’ll assume once they are losing that the gifts granted by the Goddess no longer hold and fearing he could be killed sends all the charmed girls to their death so he can escape.

    That’s what I would hate to see happen, Tomoki is a rapist D-bag with an inflated ego thanks to the Goddess and the Princess. The moment he starts to basically kill the girls he controls, I’m out!

        Sure they have their harsh moments but mind controlled, sexually abused little girls dying would kinda ruin what is otherwise a great story for me, that is all.

        Wait, what? You do realize this is being *translated* here right? Reigokai is the TL, he has no control on the content of the plot, why would what I find to be a deal breaker for my enjoyment have *any* sway on the future story!? Or are you saying that you assume that anyone voicing their concerns on what comes next and saying they’ll stop reading is trying to change the TL’s mind or something? Because you know what happens when one “assumes”…

        I’m voicing my opinions on the development of the story, to see if I’m alone in seeing this future trend or if others share my concerns.

        Heck I would have loved nothing more then for someone to make an iron clad argument refuting all my theories!

    1. Well the Goddess is not going to bless the demons, she hates them because they are ugly.

      Calling the male hero a rapist is a bit extreme. In a sense it is true, but the demon eyes seem to work rather gradually so it is not as bad as it seems.

      Other than that, so far he comes across as a bit of an immature self centered jerk. I would not be suprised if he went over the deep end over quickly, however, right now he has not done much to earn people’s ire.

      In any case, I have no idea why you think the story would suddenly go so dark.

      1. It’s just what I fear, I really, really like the story but ever since the MC chopped the hands, then killed the female adventurer (which granted had it coming) I get the feeling the story is gradually getting darker and darker.

        The fact the male hero is already sleeping with his female party members (who are basically mind controlled, thous rape), one of them which is 12 has not help to dissipate my fears, then we have the Princess who is arguably worse since she pushed him to it while planning to kill her whole familly and rule the world.

      2. Hmm, I did not think of it but I suppose you are right in saying that the story is getting darker.

        Bear in mind that the male hero is only 15. It is not an adult sleeping with a kid but a kid sleeping with another kid. Not to mention it is a medival society, so people should be growing up faster.

      3. I don’t see how it’s extreme.
        Doing the same thing IRL with drugs IS rape. In this story, it just happen to be done with magic in a less obvious way and (maybe) with less secondary effects. If the mind control is the type to get broken upon his death, we can expect some good despair event horizon from the mind controlled people (not only girls, since he will probably make people do a lot of shit with it).

        But I have to agree that since everything has gone his way so far, he has not done too much yet. He is the kind of character that is meant to get out of control very fast when things are not as they want.

      1. While that would be cool, the author seems to want to set Makoto as either the future God of the demons or at least an ally of them.

        He can speak all their languages, he’s “ugly” and so far has been betrayed by hyumans, add some bad blood with the Goddess and I get the feeling he’ll side with the demons in this war (without necesarely aiding them in batle per se).

        Not only that, so far the demons are the good guys in this world, they banded together and attacked the hyumans not to conquer, not out of bloodlust but out of necesity.

        They were being hunted to extinction and had no fertile land to live on, both because of the Goddess.

        Makoto could house them in his dimention to stop further blood shed (at least for a while).

    3. Hello there. As much as I like seeing you and Owl going back and forth, I need to correct one thing you said. I’m sure Owl was talking about Kei Azumi, the author of the novel itself and not Reig. I’m sure that Owl knows that Reig isn’t the one writing the story.

      2. Look, I wasn’t really chewing you out. And don’t worry, I have doubts that Reig would ever drop this project just because someone is trying to influence him.

        You wouldn’t. People like Owl are a dime a dozen. You were only stating your true opinion and that you would leave if something you didn’t like happens. However, that’s different than trying to get a project stopped.

        Owl was in the wrong for instigating you and you were in the wrong for falling for it. Either way, you two should make up. This is only my opinion, I can’t make either of you do anything. However, I can still ask.

  18. Thanks for the chapter!

    Seem like the chiya and hibiki will get backstabbed in the near future, but at least she has avoided the “too dumb to live” flag of the stereotypical hero, since she’s questioning the goddess and has noticed that tomoki can influence people. But since she is the first to not go the way tomoki want, I expect him to make the actions we expect from the spoiled little kid he is. So hibiki may only avoid total destruction in the end, unlike tomoki who is accumulating flags every time we see him (seriously, the “mid-boss fight” thing is like asking for the end boss to show up in mid game).

    And I can see the bug end badly even more each time we learn things about it. The blessing thing is totally at the image of how shallow and artificial she is. And it seem like she want to interfere with makoto, which is not a bad idea if she is REALLY trying to get rid of him while he has not yet caught up to her (even if he has as much magic than her, in term of control, spell (and maybe quality) he can’t be compared yet), but if it’s just to annoy him and telling him what to do, intimidate him, or half-assed attempts to kill him, it will come back to bite her later.

      1. If anything happens to Hibiki it will be the Princess doing, either by pushing Tomoki to do something or by arranging her death/humiliation.

        For her plan to work there can only be one active hero, the one she controls.

        So either she will be harmed in some way, disgraced or betrayed before/during the battle so she has to retire as a hero.

        By either losing the respect of the people or by being too heavily injured or maybe even killed.

    I can easily imagine a fight between Makoto and Tomoki with Tomoki being made to suffer by Makoto constantly cutting off Tomoki’s limbs like a hot knife through butter. Showing Makoto’s rare sadistic moments and Tomoki begging him to stop. Oh how satisfying that scene will be.

  25. My thoughts:
    1. Hibiki has earned a spot in my favorite characters, simply because she wasn’t “driven mad” with her powers, also because she seems evolving compared to the first time she was presented to us. Something like this otherwordly experience has changed her a bit.

    2. Tomoki as I thought is a filthy sob who like most cliches went from victim to bully, also as we all thought, drunk by his power.

    3. That bug (goddess) obviously favours Tomoki since he is a guy… meh.

  27. Lol this goddess really is one of the worst gods i saw. So she basically made the hyumans to make model shows for her and praise her to decide which side gets her blessings and curses. She just wants to be flattered and see pretty things. For her thats the only reason the hyumans exist in that world.
    Hyuman vs hyuman wars turned into some kind of demented dance-offs where whoever gets the highest score in the stage wins the war…

    When fighting against the demons the hyumans only relied on the blessings. Whithout that they don’t stand a chance. They don’t deserve to win against the demons.
    I hope in the end that bug will be chased away and the demons win the war but Makoto convinces them to let the hyumans live freely and just take a part of their land.

    Tomoki just suits so well that goddess. Both are scum. I hope he won’t be able to charm any of Makoto’s friends/subordinates.
