Chapter 92: Makoto’s worries and unexpected rumors

The company is going well.

I think it is stupid that I didn’t think about it, but after opening there have been conspicuous resales and things like buying all the goods. It isn’t perfect, but I made some counter-measures.

Specifically speaking, things like limits on how many goods one can buy and “requests” for the people that want to resale.

It isn’t something that I can completely stop anyways, so giving up somewhat, I made a plan to the extent I can. Because doing the same thing repeatedly and going stale is just unproductive.

The lectures too… One might say, they are going well.

Since then, the students that were introduced by Brait-sensei some of them remained, and those that remained introduced the class to other students, so we succeeded in securing a fair amount of students.

… That only 5 people remained, well, it’s probably good like that. Having too many just makes it troublesome, yeah.

The 5 people are all scholarship students and have the nature of craving for power. Seeing it from a normal student perspective, my lectures didn’t fit their taste, but the highest percentage felt danger from it. It was probably not a very desirable lecture.

For the time being I am still accepting students, but I am not really expecting much. As for the students that remained I will do some light “experiments” without permission on a level where their health is not affected, and while at that, have them take the lectures.

Because I use a weakening [Sakai] in the practical skill area the whole lecture, it looks flashy but since it is not on a dangerous level, the academy side decided it was okay. Just as planned. What I was worried about was that the effect should weaken depending on the scope of the effect, but lately, maybe because I am getting used to it, the effect seems to have increased. <Looks flashy probably means the state of the people, not the Sakai itself>

Currently, there haven’t been any interference from the teacher faction and it has been peaceful.

In short, the livelihood in Academy Town is going favorably.

And yet…

In the library I have been going to as a habit after my lectures, I find a book I am looking for and sit on a desk that’s slightly to the front of it, and just like that I fall prostrated.

A long sigh leaks from my mouth.

Right now, I am being cornered in a sense.

“To think that in this world the hyumans practiced polygamy” (Makoto)

A sacred system that was established by God, or so it seems. Yeah, God.

A monologue comes out from my mouth. Maybe because no one understands me, I feel like my monologues after coming to the Academy have increased. I don’t want them to look at me with strange eyes so I am trying to not do it that much though.

But, to think they practice polygamy. That bug, she really gets me every time. That total idiot.

It looks like a system convenient for men, but it is actually not the case. In my lack of imagination, I thought of the polygamy system as something like a harem. I was really naïve.

After looking at the hyuman society I have finally noticed.

This is not something like having as many wives you want and going “uhauha”, rather, it is more like the qualitative difference between modern Japan gets even worse.

People that have the most beauty and riches, in other words, the women gather onto the superior men and it isn’t like everyone can have a harem.

On the contrary, it increases the chances of males that can’t marry. Goddess, just how many terrible things do you have to do in order to be satisfied? There’s no need to screen them out that much.

Polygamy system is actually a really dream-like system for the majority of males.

Even so, it makes the chances of me marrying even lower, or not.

… It’s the opposite.

It has been several months since I come to this Academy but, maybe it was 2 weeks ago?

That I was confessed to.

For someone like Shiki, from the first day there were numerous girls that wanted to go out with him, but I just laughed as if someone else’s business and didn’t envy, nor soothe, or hear his complains.

At the time when my company had rode on the tracks and the Academy had somewhat approved of my abilities; well it is something recent though.

It began with a call that said a student had something to consult. It was a girl I have never seen in my lectures. In short, a student I have never met before.

“Is sensei already married?”

That was the beginning of my nightmare.

[I’m single. What about it?]

Of course, that’s how I responded.

I don’t know how it turned this way, but after that, the girl said this:

“Then after the third one, could you please marry me?”

The inside of my brain… became a complete mess. In my previous world, when I was confessed to by my kohai and my club friend, I didn’t feel anything like tension or excitement.

I was just dumbfounded. Because, even if a person I first met suddenly asks me to marry her, my feelings are zero. Also she said something about numbers. At that time, I didn’t understand the meaning.

To the female student that said something absurd with an unexpected serious face, I breathe out a sigh, knowing that it was rude.

[I am sorry, but I don’t have any intentions to]

I was somehow able to write that and left the place.

The next confession was that day at evening. No, instead of confession it was like the first one, a proposal.

And so, in the store, outside, inside the Academy; without caring about the place, they called me and if it gets bad they make a marriage proposal right there.

Moreover, there’s always the “please make me your wife number X”. However, in the X number, it is always a number that’s not number 1. They were mostly 3 to 5.

Polygamy. Really the worst.

I have a business and have a decent amount of money as well as having fair amount of ability. Then they ignore my face and just suggest to be the number 2 wife and on to gold dig. That’s probably how it goes. Just their objective of having me support them is cruel and yet, it feels like they might even bring out something like rebuilding their home and have all of my money taken. There were girls who had some transparent ulterior motive like that.

Leaving the love and raising the child to the number 1 or 2, they aim to do nothing at all.

In truth, that’s just how it is.

There was once when a girl who had an appearance that was truly to my taste came wearing a white robe and, I couldn’t tell if she was demanding research expenses or proposing marriage, but when she did, I said jokingly:

[If you become my number 1, I will marry and give you as much money as you want]

And when I said that, not only did she show me an expression of incredible disgust, she also said:

“No thanks!”

As if her life was at stake, and ran away as fast as she could.

I have been confessed as if looking down on me several times, but that one really got me.

… Really, I give up.  It isn’t popularity, I am just being locked on as prey. It was a lot easier when they just didn’t treat me like a human being. The way they are now makes it hard for my spirit.

In the library there haven’t been those kind of developments, but it is just a matter of time.

Now that I think about it, why is it that the library is a safe zone?

Do they have some sort of rule? Or is someone keeping them in check? No matter which, I am grateful.

I raise my head and hold the book in my hands. Now then, let’s study today as well.

Today I don’t need to go to the store. At first I was doing business with no breaks, but most of the stores normally have a 1 or 2 days break. We even work till late, so thinking that it would be okay to have regular holidays, I made it so in a day when I have lectures it will be a free day.

The small one of the Forest Onis said “Gloria~~!!” and raised her hands in the sky. That girl is someone I still don’t understand well.

“Ara, today is a book about religion? Raidou-sensei really reads books of many different types. Magic, combat, history, geography, customs, also demi-humans… The ones I haven’t seen you reading are probably tales, math and biography”

[Eva-san huh. If you suddenly talk to me like that, it will scare me. Also, do you remember every book someone like me reads?]

“Yeah. I am interested in Raidou-sensei after all” (Eva)

The librarian Eva-san smiles teasingly.

[Please give me a break. You won’t be coming to ask me for marriage as well right?]

“… Ah, so the reason of your fatigue was that. Superficial love. It seems like there are many girls that want to marry. I sympathize with you sensei” (Eva)

[Right now this is the only place in the Academy that can bring me peace. Concerned about my appearance and after my popularity increased they now want to suck on the sweet nectar. Geez, just what do they take marriage for?]

“Well, here the number of students that are nobles or have a big mercantile house is not small, so there are a lot of students that don’t think of marriage as mutual love” (Eva)

Changing her smile to a wry one, Eva-san answers to my resent. Maybe she has experience herself, Evan-san doesn’t answer in an intellectual way, but in a way that feels like she has some basis. I like when it is easy to understand.

[Political marriage huh. To have such a way of thinking at their teens. Is that normal for nobles and rich people?]

“… It’s just that some will reach that way of thinking faster than others. Is one way of taking it” (Eva)

[I think that a marriage where feelings of love exist is not bad though]

It is not that it isn’t bad. I really think that’s how a marriage should be. Something that connects the people that marry.

“Raidou-sensei is i-, no, pure huh. Since small, no matter who, they would put marriage as like and dislike but… as expected, when one grows up they take into account the feelings as well as advantages and disadvantages. Of course, it is not like it can be put into words nor can be defined with a set definition” (Eva)

Hearing the talk of Eva-san, I remember the voice I heard in my head the first time I met her. Now that I think about it, it resembled the voice of her. That time I didn’t link the contents with anything dangerous, so I wasn’t sure nor did I take it in mind but…

Maybe she also has some sort of ulterior motive for being considerate with me. If that’s the case, then it is a bit sad.

[Then what is Eva-san’s meaning of the word adult love and the feelings that it contains?]

“… Let’s see. In times it is a material for bargaining. If I say something like that, will sensei be disappointed in me?” (Eva)

[Who knows. However, I am not in the mood of reading anymore. For today I will be going]

A material for bargaining huh. Unexpected. Words that didn’t connect to the word love at all. To have heard such a thing from a person who doesn’t match that image is just… shocking.

I give her the book I was planning to read and leave the library.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

[And so Gin, what did you want to talk about?]

After leaving the Academy, I was caught by one student.

The owner of the voice that stopped me is a male.

It’s the male swordsman that has been attending since the first lecture without missing one. He uses magic and seems to have been especially impressed by the style of Shiki, and while learning foundation techniques, there are times when he requests spars with Shiki.

From the five, I just remember the swordsman Gin that has been attending since the first day and the bow-wielding girl Amelia. <Choose one Gin or Jin. Jin felt like it sounded a bit weird so I changed to Gin, but do tell me>

Gin uses the sword as main and magic as support in battle, but Amelia uses magic as main and bow as support. I still can’t say much, but well, the two of them show promise. Amelia does have desires for power, but more than that, she is in love with Shiki. Maybe she is changing the power of a woman in love into learning power, she is fast at memorizing and improvement.

Well, since I was called by a student I know of, I decided to just take lunch with him.

By the way, Amelia seems to have aesthetics in the afternoon.

Aesthetics.

When I heard this word for the first time in the Academy, my eyes went wide.

After asking in detail and researching in the library, it seems that aesthetics is a concept that was brought about by the Goddess. An institution for the sake of pursuing beauty and spreading it.

Before spreading such stupid things, there should be techniques that need to be taught to hyumans or something like that. I was truly amazed. Because of that reason, there are names of cosmetics I have heard about before and there were times when I was asked if my company also handles cosmetic products.

Currently I don’t manage those and I have no plans to do so in the future though. Things like lipstick and powder are stuff that Tomoe might suggest and I don’t want that. In the current state, she is already making Asora pass through so much hardship after all.

Well, for now let’s leave aside the topic of Amelia, aesthetics and cosmetics. Honestly, I don’t even have the energy to retort.

I wavered, but in the end I decided on Gotetsu.

I haven’t visited as frequently as Shiki. Even so, the taste is to my liking and since I am used to coming here, it is relaxing. Gin seems to have come here for the first time and was looking at the store interior with curiosity and smelling the scent of the food.

Asking for a private room at the inner part of Gotetsu, we both enter and take our sits.

“Ah that’s right. Sensei comes from Tsige right?” (Gin)

[Yeah]

“Actually there are two students that were attending this Academy and are currently absent” (Gin)

[Fumu, continue]

“They are not scholarship students, but they have quite the skills and are promising” (Gin)

[If they are promising, why are they absent?]

“It seems that they are ill” (Gin)

N, ill? Since Tsige, these are the first ill people. Students… and their age.

Could it be…?

[Could it be, are you talking about Rembrandt’s daughters?]

“… So you already knew huh. I heard that Rembrandt Company has quite the influence in Tsige, so I thought you might know” (Gin)

[But what about it?]

“I don’t know if they were truly ill, but it seems like they will be returning to the Academy soon. And so, I was thinking about warning Sensei” (Gin)

[Warning? Also Gin, even though school friends are returning to school, you don’t seem happy]

“You see… Sensei probably doesn’t know but, those sisters are…” (Gin)

[If you are warning me, make yourself clear]

Why is it getting hard for him to say it? What is he trying to tell me?

“… Their personalities are the worst. They are the archetype rich girls and are particular about beauty. And they have good grades too, so that makes their personality even worse” (Gin)

….. Eh?

Those girls had that kind of personality? No well, didn’t they give more of a fleeting feeling?

No, wait a second.

Now that he mentions it, there have been no moments where I have exchanged words with those girls properly. *“Run away” is the only thing I was told*. <When he was curing the oldest daughter, she told him to run>

Even if you talk about beauty or whatever, taking into account the wife, the three of them were monsters.

Since Rembrandt-san is a good person, I thought that her wife and daughters were good people as well.

Rich ladies and have a bad personality? Are you serious?

“It seems you didn’t know. No well, lately Sensei has been targeted right? From the girls around” (Gin)

Maybe he took my silence as affirmation, Gin felt sympathy for me.

[Don’t say it. It makes my head hurt]

“When they return to school, it is better to not get their attention. The two of them are incredibly particular about physical appearance so it might be okay, but just in case. It’s just, if they have their eyes on Shiki-san, it might impede the lectures. Really, be careful okay? Ah, this thing called Nabe is delicious. I didn’t know about it~” (Gin)

I feel like he indirectly told me something rude. Also, I feel like he is actually worried about Shiki.

[Understood. I will tell Shiki as well]

“Thank you very much! Is this place your favorite Sensei? How tasteful~. Can I come here as well?” (Gin)

[Do what you want. Ah right. Shiki also comes here quite often. Since we are already here, how about I order you his favorite?]

“Is that okay?! I’ll eat! Eh? And Sensei?” (Gin)

[I remembered I had something to do. Just take it easy]

After ordering the cream Nabe on my way back and finishing my revenge for his rudeness, I winced as the seeds of troubles increased while I leave the store.

But, the Rembrandt daughters are ill-natured?

Are they really? Seeing Rembrandt-shi’s stupid manners, I could tell that they were truly loved daughters so I didn’t doubt it. Is he the type of person that no matter how the daughter acts he will still think of them as cute?

Well, if they are really going to be returning to the Academy soon, it will be clear at that time.

After being proposed twice on my way back, I arrived at my store.

    1. lol, polygamy doesn’t really mean harem or lowering the chances of males getting married. there’s bound to be casual sex relationship and gay. Otherwise, lesbian could also be said as lowering the chance of males getting femaled.

      that being said, polygamy itself isn’t easy because the male doing that must have significant amount of money just for his wives lifelihood. Not just money, but also ‘stamina’

      2. It is usually like upper class folk and royalty that could afford to do polygamy in the first place and not even accessible to the middle class usually but 2 wives would be doable for a pretty successful merchant or big time farmer that owns a lot of lands. So where does Makoto get this stupid idea of males losing their chance to get married?

      5. Imagine if there is only 6 women and 6 men not terrible odds right, perfect one to one ratio. Well 3 of those women got married to the first guy. Now it’s 3 women and 6 guys (yes the first dude is still looking for more.) unless you feel like sharing, no girls double or triple up for one dude, the girls happen to be lesbians, or the remaining all hate you. You’re basically screwed. It’s hard enough finding a girl but now we’ve got men taking extra. I think that’s what the MC is thinking.

      6. Without money, a poor guy is still not going to get married in the first place regardless if polygamy was practiced or not. Sorry but Makoto is still illogical.

        Polygamy has barely any effect on a poor guy’s chances to get laid.

        It feels like you are blaming the concept of polygamy compared to blaming the poor guy for being poor in the first place.

        Why should someone who can’t provide for his wife and potential children have a chance of getting married in the first place?

        Are you advocating a pity marriage policy or something?

        And for those that practice polygamy, they aren’t aiming for the average village girl in the first place but women at the top of society, women that would never take a look at a poor guy in the first place.

        Polygamy shouldn’t affect a poor guy at all.

      8. are you sure the ratio is from modern times not ancient times. From what i know the ratio of male and female not 1:1, but 1:3 to 1:10 now. If all guy married only one what about the rest of female. Do you want them to die without love from husband?or you want only you to be love? Anyone who against polygamy is really cruel and inhuman for their fellow human.

        Liked by 1 person

      9. From a genetic standpoint, the ratio has always been close to 1:1, it’s a 50/50 chance for an X or Y chromosome. It’s probably because men die more often due to riskier activities that you get a skewed ratio.

        When talking about population genetics and distribution, one thing you CANNOT do is be emo or PC, hard facts don’t give a sh-t about political views or your emotion, it just does what it wants, and the fact that if women gravitates exclusively to one man, it would skew the ratio, no argument about it, there isn’t someone going to materialize from thin air to rebalance the ratio. It works the other way as well, if women collected men, then there is going to be a shortage of men due to the skewed ratio.

        That being said, there are also people who do not feel the need to get married, prefer casual affairs, prefer the same gender etc so it is not really as hard and fast as “polygamy = shortage” since there is a “sump” pool of people who opt out of the marriage system or think it is “not time yet” or even tap the younger/older generation of women/men.

        So yeah, some truths but a massive oversimplification.

      10. I suspect monogamy was more of a religious thing from Christianity or Catholicism, lots of places in the world practiced polygamy until recently. My grandfather had 3 wives, I know the Muslims still practice polygamy and Africa and India used to until recently (historically speaking).

    1. My gut feeling says they ‘reformed’ during the period they were ill.

      After becoming ‘ugly’, they probably got into pretty deep despair. The dad loving them helps but they took his love as familial so there’s a bit of doubt.

      But when Makoto saved them they probably had feelings for him, and had a breakthrough of “he didn’t show any aversion to how we look, so we won’t care about his looks either”
      That said, they’ll probably still be same ol to everyone else, after all it’s ONLY Makoto who saved them.

  4. You know all this a moot point. The goddess in the beginning could have just made him look good, she’s a goddess, and should have that kinda power. And I’m sure Makoto could have found some type of magic that makes one more beautiful,handsome, specially for a society and world based off beauty, they’re has to be a magic or way(surgery lol). You know just so he can fit in better like he wants. Be a little vain if it helps you get through life on this world.

    1. If its something only cosmetic like surgery than it wouldn’t be in his genes. The goddess probably feels that handsome/beautiful people are innately superior to others and as such an ugly person who she turns to look beautiful would just be an inferior person in disguise. Also the goddess isn’t all that all powerful otherwise she wouldn’t even need to summon a human, she could just make heroes or something.

      Like

    2. This implies that the Goddess would be “nice”. The reason that hyumans are so weak compared to humans is that she abandoned literally every “stat” in exchange for beauty. Like Rikeri before me already said, she wants only beautiful things in her world. Disguising him would just annoy her more since then he would legit get a lot of people wanting to marry him. Strong + Beautiful (or even average by their world) + Rich, he’d be a magnet. And his genes don’t change, that’d be on the level of genetic manipulation. Though she calls herself a Goddess, bug isn’t on that level. Neither are the Earth gods btw, and the bug is nothing to the earth gods (kind of a spoiler? well, you’ll see it eventually in a side story)

  6. Is Makoto that naive or did he never learn anything from his history classes because arranged marriages have been a thing since the dawn of human civilization. Even the peasant class in the Middle Ages experienced arranged marriages like the local farmer arranging his daughter to marry a local butcher’s son, etc. Marrying for love was not realistic for a majority of people in those times and for a majority of human history.

    As for polygamy, I don’t know if the author read the wrong research material about polygamy, but in the majority of actual historical polygamy marriages, it is actually the head wife plus number two that bosses around the younger wives after them and make them look after the kids rather than the other way around.

    Here, the author says even the #5 wife can somehow dump the kids on the wife with the head position and not expect any retribution?

    It is a contradiction since as seen with Mio and Tomoe in previous chapters, they were arguing over whose position is higher when it concerns Makoto so being seen as the #1 wife or lover should be seen as an enviable position but here in this chapter, the author makes it seem like the #5 lover or wife can somehow call the shots and boss around the #1 wife without any problems and can just live on as a freeloader while dumping her own kids on the #1 or #2 wife.

    I really don’t understand the author’s intentions at all.

    Like

    1. I feel like the Author is trying to say that the 5th and so on wives would have a smaller role to fill, and as such, would have a life closer to that of a freeloader….

      About the lower ranked wives pushing their children off onto the main wives, I got nothing. Frankly, I don’t even see the Bug agreeing to something like that….

      Like

    2. this is a system made by buggess so it probably makes sense in some messed up way to her

      from the man’s pov, he gets to pride himself in bedding many women.

      from the main wives pov, they pride themselves in having the man all to themselves with little interference. since all harem stories never care much about the women much anyways, this system allows the man to only focus on the main wives.

      from the extra wives/concubines/prostitutes, they get money in exchange for sex and don’t even have to deal with the resulting child.

      personally, i still say that is an extremely messed up system for marriage, but it’s the buggess after all. Tomoki is already on the path anyways.

      at least Hibiki is still single, but i feel like she might pull off the reverse harem. actually, a reverse harem is easily doable if the wife just spends 1 year with each husband to ensure that each gets a child.

      The first wife can only remain at the husband side while the 2nd , 3rd and so on can only leech as much as they want and leave anytime they want.
      That’s why most girl only want to be 2nd and 3rd and well reject 1st wife position.

      If you get what I mean you well also sympathize on mc situation.
      In short male must do its very best to decline females as much or possible or they well be living a life much worse than hell

    4. just my two cents but the way I understood it is sth lke this;

      – 1st & 2nd pos wives(main) marries for love or at least to have a family.

      – 3rd & nth times, marries for money, social standing and financial gains and so on. Also has less to nothing responsibilities to the husband. Meaning no sex, kids and minimal contact aside from leeching money, at worst. Judging by the reaction of one particulat student according to Makpto.

      – Makoto is frpm Modern Age Japan, even if he has knowledge of the customs from the Middle Age it diesn’t mean he has to accept and understand it since it didn’t involve him until now. Not to forget, even in modern Japan, and othet countries, arrange marriages are being practiced, maybe not commonly and oftenly by othet countries but it exists. But just like Makoto said himself, he’s been naive(no surprise there).

    5. Maybe they mean “having children”, not “taking care of”?
      The 1st and 2nd would have to sleep with Makoto more frequently and according to their standards, he isn’t that hot. That would explain the reaction of the woman that was to “his taste”. She might want to sleep with him once or twice for the easy life but when he proposed a closer relationship with more sex, she got disgusted. So it might mean that they are pushing the “sex life” onto the 1st and 2nd wives while they just cruise in the background?

      1. I think here the first two wifes has the responsibility/privilege (depending how you look at it) to assure that the family will continue. They have to bear childrens for their husban so those can carry on the family name.
        The wifes coming after the first two are more like mistresses/concubines with little responsibilities.

        Those gold diggers might think that with minimal effort they could leech on Makoto’s money and power. They might even think that because of his looks he will be easier to manipulate and swindle his money as he would be more desperate to keep/please them.

    1. LOL, this isn’t the typical kind of polygamy and marriage proposals we see in anime you know. Its the more realistic, “gold digger” kind. All of those girls proposing to him are just doing it to leech off of him. See the girl that was asked to be first wife? She was immediately disgusted and left. They’re probably all the same way. They’re just looking at his money and figure they can have a good life if they’re married to someone so strong and rich. Gold diggers, all of them. Not something you want to get into.

    Like

    1. Femdom? Not really. Bug value beauty than anything else. It means it doesn’t matter if her children, hyumans, is a male or female. One proof of that is the absurdly good-looking male and female hyumans, not just femals. Anothet proof is Bug “chose” a Male Hero, trash-kun.

      So it’s not “rule” of female gender. That’s another novel you are taking about. I’ve read it too, dropped it along the way.

      It doesn’t necessarily have to be the Males that establish the harem. Any female hyuman can have her hatem of males as well as long as the female possess the requirements. I don’t know about same-sex harem but probably ok as well according to Bug.

      Like

    2. Bug made the males look great too, so I don’t think femdom is the reason. Its just that a single guy can get multiple women pregnant at the same time, but not vice versa. Thats why I think the system is just the bug’s design to have as many beautiful people being born at the highest rate. At the same time, though she gave beauty to all the hyumans, there are still some that are worse than others. This system is just favoring those males with better genes, and since they’ll have lots of proposals, they’ll likely choose the better females, so its like an imposed “natural selection” kind of system. In all honesty, given what bug wants, the system itself is pretty well thought out. Its not exactly comfortable for some of the hyumans I’d imagine, but for her purposes its rather well thought out.

  10. what does polygamy has to do with Makoto in the end? He’s not interested in them anyway so just shot them proposals down. It seems to me the females were stopping when they get rejected anyways. It’s common in Bug’s world so he’s not really being criticized for those proposals. It’s stupid to brood over it too much.

    I don’t know if this novel/author-san will give him a woman but it’s probably still far far far far far off in the future so it’s pointless worries in his part.

    I’m glad another new character entered the story, Gin, hopefully Makoto’s side pick up pace soon. Not really interested in the sisters yet but I can imagine them giving him quite some trouble when they meet. It would be nice if one of the sisters don’t have any feelings for our MC yet and go tsuntsun till MC shows off his GAR moments during a dire moment. But meh, doesn’t mean anything when MC is dense when it counts, towards females who actually have feelings for him.

  11. Well to be completely fair. The Hyuman race has a higher female to male ratio birthrate, and being in a world just emerging from dark ages with monsters. The fatally rate must be high even with magic. So the ‘Bug’ sanctioning polygamy is a reasonable policy.

Then she kidnaps him to do her a favor and after all of that he went through she couldn’t at least give him the ability to speak their language even though she should already know he can write it. But through all of this, he hasn’t decide to continue his exercise with his bow to multiply his power, gain an unrivaled power beyond even a god’s power, ripped a door open to the goddess and put her through a few walls….. I say take her out and become the new god for the world. She can just be servant number 4 and then he can correct the messed up views of the tainted hyumans.

Did Makoto’s power grew more exponentially that Bug couldn’t interfere with him now? I mean, Bug should be aware of Makoto’s power being formidable already otherwise she wouldn’t kidnap him. Bug probably is using him now without Makoto knowing.

    Well, another chapter that was hard to keep my trap shut on. Between Makoto’s complaints on Polygamy and what he was told of the Rembrandt sisters… it was hard. I’m sure only trash-hero (Tomoki) would take advantage out of the heroes as even if reverse-harems were allowed I have doubts that Hibiki would do it. Though for Tomoe and Mio… if they had the chance, they both would be wearing white kimonos with veils and trying to hold down their waka-sama while a priest does the service😄

      Also, Makoto didn’t use Sakai to hurt his students. Only to weaken them a little. It’s like a minor simulation of Earth’s environment which is harsh on hyuman’s body. It will only weaken them at first. Over time, their body will get used to the environment and becomes stronger when in normal situation.
