Chapter 93: Our home

I have heard a worrying story about the Rembrandt sisters’ personality.

I have confirmed it with a number of people, but the reputation of those girls is not good in general.

I am one of the people staying in Academy Town that’s why I can’t go ask directly, so I asked Tomoe and Mio as well as the eldwa managing the sub-branch, Beren, to investigate in Tsige.

This was recent.

And so today, since there were various reports arranged, Tomoe asked me to return to Asora and decide on a place to meet.

… Actually, recently I haven’t stayed in Asora for long. No, honestly speaking, none. The most would be the occasional times I go to shoot the bow.

It’s not like I have gotten into a fight with anyone. There was a more simple reason.

“Shiki, can we go now?” (Makoto)

Even if I am trying to evade it, I still have business there so I have no choice. That’s why Shiki and I are returning.

“Yeah, it is fine. I have already arranged the reports on our side. It should be okay to leave the business to Lime” (Shiki)

“… Wait, you intent to open?” (Makoto)

It makes me uneasy, so maybe we should just make it a break.

“It isn’t a regular holiday and it hasn’t been that long since we opened the store, so I think it isn’t that recommended to close arbitrarily. I have ordered them to put on wait any business offers, so there’s no need to worry” (Shiki)

I am leaving a lot of the handling of the store to Shiki after all. I feel some sort of dignity there.

“If Chief Shiki says so, I will believe. Then… let’s go” (Makoto)

Without waiting for his answer, I open a mist gate.

While holding a melancholic feeling, I return to the Asora I missed.

Suddenly, I feel a thick smell and heat.

Just by being there I was beginning to sweat, and the warm and damp air enters my lungs.

That’s right, the climate of Asora that was unstable has recently been stabilized in a high temperature tropic climate.

How discomforting. It is hot and humid, and there’s no sight of rain. I’m not really sure if there are, but this makes me feel like there are tropical rain forests out there.

If it were on the level of everlasting summer it would be bearable, but this one easily surpassed the summer in Japan and it was on the level of murder.

This is the reason why I haven’t visited Asora recently. I mean, it is really harsh you know!

I thought it would soon change its climate again, but there is no signs of it changing. At this rate, won’t the agriculture be affected?

I ordered Tomoe to investigate and she told me that she has gotten to the stage where the report is in order, but she will certainly come with a proposition which has high experimental rate. Well, for now this heat hasn’t affected the area that much.

“It’s hot as usual” (Makoto)

“Yeah. The Academy seems to be in spring and it is easy to live in, so it makes this place feel even hotter” (Shiki)

“Even though you say that, you have a refreshing expression though, Shiki” (Makoto)

“I don’t mind heat that much after all. Raido- I mean, Waka-sama” (Shiki)

“… In this place I don’t really mind which way you call me you know?” (Makoto)

“Mio-dono… doesn’t seem to like you being called Raidou-sama that much so…” (Shiki)

While making a wry smile, Shiki scratches his cheek. He is worrying about the small details huh.

I just nod lightly and, shaking the air coiling around me, enter my home.

It is even night and it is still this hot. Seriously, what is going on?

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

“Waka-sama, welcome back!”

When I open the door of the hall where Tomoe and I decided the meeting to be, a big amount of voices suddenly welcomed me!

That scared me! My heart is beating like crazy you know?! What, just what is happening?!

With my mouth still open, I look inside the room and there I saw the residents of Asora gathered.

Doesn’t this look like… everyone is here?

Surrounding a big table, all of them were gathered without care for the race.

Was there such a crazy big table like this? No, there wasn’t. That means it was recently made. Using an incredible trunk of a tree just like that, they… Eh?

Isn’t it way too big? A table that can easily take more than a 100 people easily, just what kind of giant tree is that? Did they cut a world tree or something?

Also, this hall. The house was on the big side, but even so, it wasn’t this wide. With this, it isn’t a hall made for meetings, this is more like the halls aristocrats use to do their parties!

With surprise still showing in my face, I shake my head to the sides and check the situation. Everyone is looking at me with smiles in their faces.

And then, Tomoe and Mio as well as Ema come to where I am.

… That Tomoe, she is showing a face like her surprise was a total success.

Damn it, why is she so happy about tricking Shiki and me?

“… Shiki, are you okay?” (Makoto)

“Yes, Waka-sama” (Shiki)

He doesn’t show any signs of being agitated. The retainer that has been the longest time with me recently. Not only that, he is smiling.

Eh?

Eh, eh?

“Welcome back, Waka” (Tomoe)

“Welcome back, Waka-sama” (Mio)

When they are in a close distance, Tomoe and Mio welcome me once again. Ema was one step away and lowering her head.

“A, yeah. I am back” (Makoto)

While still confused, I answer with “I am back”.

“Good work, Shiki. Just like planned, it seems like Waka didn’t notice anything” (Tomoe)

Tomoe grins while talking to Shiki across me.

“Waka-sama, I am sorry. Tomoe-san said she wanted to do a surprise no matter what so… Lately, you haven’t come here at all, so please just think of this as a cute prank” (Mio)

Even Mio.

Shiki, you too huh. You were also involved in this.

Aaah!

Geez! They got me!

“Haaah~ you really did surprise me. I am back! Also, I am sorry for not coming back often!” (Makoto)

“Well, Waka seems to not be used to heat that much so I understand how you feel. Everyone wants you to return a little bit more often. Then, this” (Tomoe)

Tomoe gives me a glass. It has a characteristic scent. Alcohol huh. A night party, I don’t really mind. It’s a substance with pink color. If I remember correctly, this is a Sake that’s made by some sort of fruit and sold well in Tsige.

Everyone’s gazes gather on me and all of them contain expectation. Ah, I see. This being a dinner party and me, the leading person, holding a glass means that huh.

“CHEERS!!” (Makoto)

I lift the glass high and announce the cheers. From several places, the sound of glass hitting resonates.

“It’s been so long right? Tomoe, Mio. Also Ema” (Makoto)

Before I noticed, Mio was holding a plate of food with the hand that’s not occupied by the glass. Wah, so fast. But the party has begun, so it isn’t bad to have as much fun as you can.

“Seriously-desu zo. Asking us to investigate while you go to the Academy, only minding about children and business” (Tomoe)

“Everyone missed you. Waka-sama, please come back to Asora more often. I beg of you” (Ema)

It’s from Tomoe and Ema. Well, I receive the obvious scolding. If it were just hot it would be one thing, but I simply can’t handle the humid sensation that coils around too well. When I don’t have business I don’t really want to do it that much, but I really should return to Asora a bit more.

My knowledge gathering in the Academy is going well too and there is no point in learning this world’s knowledge and common sense completely. It isn’t like I knew all about my place of origin Japan after all.

When I gain the basic common sense and knowledge, I should move to the next step. Knowledge is gained to be used after all. Actually, I am able to playback my memories in Asora and I am clearly reading more than I did in my previous world.

I feel a bit bad about copying all the contents of the library just by reading, but it isn’t like I am selling them so please forgive me, is what I use as an excuse. I am a small being.

However, I am a bit worried about how little Mio has talked. She spoke with me a while ago, so I don’t think she is in a dangerous state. I was actually prepared to accompany her in all her talking.

“U-Uhm. If you want, please accept this” (Mio)

And when I thought that, Mio encouraged me to take the plate of food in her hands. T-To bring food for others. Maybe it was because she has been influenced by the adventurers and the people of town? That’s admirable Mio!

“Mio, thank you. Heh~ it looks like what I have eaten in Tsige. Un, the flavor is thicker than in Tsige and suits my taste. It’s really delicious” (Makoto)

It’s like the improved version of the food of Tsige that I was thinking would be better if its taste was thicker. The details are subtly different, but it is probably made by someone from the sub-branch who took an interest in the cooking of Tsige.

I see. Just like this, there’s also the pattern of Tsige influencing the culture of Asora. It is a happy happening to be able to eat the food of that town. I have been in Academy Town so I haven’t eaten the cooking of Tsige for a while.

“N, what’s wrong? Mio, you were the one who brought it, so you eat as well” (Makoto)

“….”

Even when she recommended the food, Mio looks like she is enduring something and closing her eyes in silence. What? Today Mio is really weird.

“Mio?” (Makoto)

“Ahahaha! Waka, Mio is overcome with emotions!” (Tomoe)

“Tomoe… overcome with emotions?” (Makoto)

“That’s right. What Waka ate was actually something Mio made” (Tomoe)

W-What?!

“Made?! Mio did?!” (Makoto)

“Yeah. It seems that she has awakened to cooking lately. She lowered her head to the cooks in Tsige and is learning cooking from them. Also, she is cooperating in reproducing Japanese food. Sadly, we didn’t make it in time for this occasion. The food over there is practically all made by Mio with all her heart” (Tomoe)

Being told that, I once again look at the food spread on the table. Large plates filled with food, fruits beautifully cut up, soup in pots…

This… was made by Mio.

… Isn’t that impressive?

Even if she awakened to cooking, it has only been a few months.

If you ask me about what food I could cook with that amount of time… Ah, it would be the time when I messed up the water in the rice cooker and it became a big uproar. A past I want to forget. <Not really sure what his past was. 炊飯器から出る蒸気でひどい水ぶくれを作って大騒ぎになった時くらいか>

I am totally in despair about the difference in learning capabilities. And at the same time, I am honestly impressed by how amazing Mio is.

To be able to reproduce the food she ate in the stores in such a short period of time.

“Mio, you are incredible. It was really delicious” (Makoto)

I tell her my honest feelings.

Mio trembles for a second and slowly opens her closed eyes. Her face was filled with satisfaction.

“Waka-sama, to think that cooking was such a wonderful thing. I didn’t know” (Mio)

“Eh? Weren’t you practicing for a while now? Also, you were practicing because you liked it right?” (Makoto)

“… No, I didn’t understand. And today, I have learned true happiness” (Mio)

“… I see” (Makoto)

“Yes! Waka-sama, next time I will prepare something even more delicious! That’s right, more, more-desu!” (Mio)

Suddenly making a proclamation, I thought that Mio was going to head to the food in the table, but she actually went the opposite way and left the hall.

W-What happened?

“Yareyare, that Mio. Looking at her like that, she probably intents to ignore the report meetings that are to come-ja na. Well, aside from the ingredient reports, she only has a few cases in Tsige that I already know of, so it shouldn’t pose any problems” (Tomoe)

“Tomoe, uhm, Mio is…?” (Makoto)

“Probably in Tsige. Right now, it seems like an adventurer with rare cooking techniques is there. It seems like in exchange of learning cooking from that person, Mio is taking care of a lot of difficulties for her. I pity her, looking at Mio’s state, she will probably be dragged into an all-nighter” (Tomoe) <Remember the barrier trespassing incident? Also no gender denotation here>

What a nuisance she is being. Even though cooking is like an odd job technique for adventurers. Well, Mio is looking after a lot of problems so it should prove as beneficial for her principal occupation. Well, there’s no need to worry huh. It seems like she is engrossed in cooking, so I don’t have to worry about her injuring that adventurer.

“Well, it is good that she is satisfied” (Makoto)

“Thank you for your lenient words. Then, there are A LOT of people that have been wanting to meet Waka, so let’s go together. The meeting can be done later. Ah, I don’t mind you drinking sake, but please try not to get drunk. Shiki, and master as well” (Tomoe)

“Looks like it will be a long night huh” (Makoto)

“I will restrain from Sake. I feel like it would affect my actions in tonight’s report meeting after all” (Shiki)

“Shiki is really uptight-ja no. I won’t say it is bad, but you are being too stiff. I think it would be nice to have a bit of alcohol in your system. Ah that’s right, since we have the chance, let’s have food brought into the room of Waka where we will be holding the meeting. Ema, can I leave this to you?” (Tomoe)

“Yes. I will have it done. Everyone seems to be so happy to see Waka-sama after a long time. Today’s drinks seems to be quite a lot, so there will probably be people who will be dead drunk soon. I will gather people and have them prepare to nurse” (Ema)

Ema lively gives orders as she disappears into the crowd. Even if she looks like that, she is the type that likes Sake. We have made her take on a hard task. I will have tell someone to bring her food and Sake later.

Anyways, that Tomoe. I thought this at the time of Lime as well but, this girl, she really acts like a rogue. To drink while deciding our plans huh. Since it is like this, I feel like I will hear good news but…

“Now now, Waka. From the eldwas first, in order. They can’t wait anymore. They have been doing their best. Do reward them please” (Tomoe)

“Yeah, I understand” (Makoto)

No objections here. Everyone is really doing their best. I haven’t been coming that often, but I understand plenty enough.

There’s no need for Tomoe to tell me. If I am enough, I want to go to the places of everyone and give them my thanks.

Along with Tomoe and Shiki, I head to the residents who have made a line and waiting for me.

    1. You have to remember, those 2 are also proud to a certain extent, if it does not directly affect them or their precious waka-sama, they also tend to treat things lightly. The difference between their pride and the heroes is that they actually have the strength to back it up, not because they are more humble.

      So I’m not really surprised that Tomoe did not investigate further.

    1. Well, she really isn’t there for “him”, she’s just there because she was bored and he lets her watch TV (historical drama) and plays Simcity (Asura). Mio and Shiki on the other hand actually considers Makoto’s well being and interests. Shen is actually just following because he makes her life interesting.

      1. Well…..Tomoe is definitely there for the entertainment that Makoto provides in that dull world. Mio didn’t even have a life prior to encountering Makoto so she sees her life as only having color because of Makoto. Shiki seeks power and knowledge which he is receiving plenty of for becoming Makoto’s servant.

        it’s like the difference between a playful friend, a devoted lover, and a reliable butler.

      2. She might have joined him primarily because he was interesting and she was bored, but she does truly care for him. Even if she is bound by the contract, she didn’t need to push herself to her limits trying to heal Makoto after his fight with the battle maniac and Lancer. Or pick a fight with another dragon when he went missing.

      3. You’re right, Mio is very devoted to him. But there are times when that level of devotion can be dangerous. We might enjoy reading about some slight yandere tendencies, but we never want it to go to the level that the Queen of Yandere took it to. I think Tomoe has it at a good level.

      1. Well, she’s too much of an improv person. Without confirming things with Makoto beforehand she did questionable things like bringing in Forest Oni when she knew there’s also the adventurer that they tried to kill. Also, hiring Lime without asking Makoto.

        Also, I doubt that she’ll report the meeting with Tomoki and transportiong Mio’s friends anytime soon.

      2. Not liking her personality aside, you’re reading way too much into the other things and even misconstruing things. Makato agreed to the forest ogres in his company, he just didn’t want the whole village in Asora, which surprised everyone including Mio who saw their benefits. She doesn’t have to ask Makato for every decision. She’s his number 2 for a reason. Makato could have easily turned Lime away when he showed up at the shop. I wouldn’t be surprised if Lime when through the same training as the Forest Onis before being allowed to go the shop in the first place.

  9. I don’t understand. MC can create barrier that easily blocks laser beams or fire balls so why does some hot humid weather bother MC so much when he can just create a barrier that keeps hot air out and cool air in? He could also have the barrier block some sunlight to make himself feel even cooler.

    It just feels silly for MC to complain about hot weather when he got dropped in a desert wasteland in the beginning.

      1. To be accurate it was 13 rings, second while this a slight spoiler it has nothing to do with the plot it just hasn’t been talked about yet but, while the rings are fused into shiki they are so strong he can’t even control the energy in them properly. He can manage 3 right about now (estimated because as said the author hasn’t brought this up yet) and the energy is replenished through the contract link

      2. Indeed levels are BS in this LN, think of it as levels in Dragon Ball, total BS. How Mio who is level 1500 can easily wipe out an entire forest with a fan? While someone half her level (say Sofia) can barely defeat a dragon (supposedly) with all her might and the help of others in her party?

        Yet that same “weak” Sofia cut Makoto’s (the most powerful being besides the goddess, supposedly) fingers?

        Not to mention his freaking level is 1, thinking of that level one as those promotions in fire emblem games, while just the level number resets (just in Makoto’s case, he’s been promoted like a gazillion times lol). BS I say.

      Not that Tomoe and Mio aren’t great, but I feel the set won’t be complete without Ema.🙂

    2. Let’s start.
      Aside from his servants, only Ema, Toa, Lime, The Rembrant Sisters, and Trashmoki have a chance.
      But Hibiki does not deserve the greatness of Makoto. Trashmoki… is trash. Toa is a good option but maybe she doesn’t want a relationship. Ema is his employee (But I can’t deny a forbidden laboral affair in the future). Lime is an excellent prospect.

      Nevertheless I hope that he can make the Rembrand Sister his First and Second.

  16. So Makoto copy everything in the library. Thats good to hear. He should be quiet knowledgeable. I wonder if he was knowledge about cooking he can share with Mio. Academy Town library has quiet a few books should there should be something there fore cooking. There should also be stuff on blacksmithing, agriculture, crafting, and administration. I can see more infrastructure be build in Asora like a school, library and a government meetings.

    I like that Makoto is back in Asora. Before Academy town I wanted him to stay in Asora and help to build up the town while getting to know the people better.

      1. He does complain like lot. He reminds of one Greg Aryes (voice actor) character in one of the anime series he did. But I can not remember. This is the 2nd time today I heard someone commet something from Rise of the Shield Hero. Right now I am reading the LN series.

      2. He is an anime voice actor. Worked for ADV films, now works for Funimation, and Sentai Works. The way Makoto complains reminds me in of one of his characters in one his anime. But he has done so many I can not remember. When Greg Aryes does his whole complaining yelling act with one of his characters it is always very hilarious.

      1. I agree with that, BUT Makoto has to come second, or slightly tied with Hajime. AT LEAST Hajime has the balls to do what he does without many internal monologue BS about ethics and out of context crap… also he has sex with his harem, contrary to this eunuch, homo piece of work.

        Still I hate Hajime, but Makoto is just failing epically in my list, only thing I am grateful of this LN are the subplots and the fact that Mio and Tomoe are two of the most awesome female characters (even though part of the harem, supposedly) could easily pass as MCs themselves! :0

    1. Yeah I hate Makoto. That guy fucked all the girls and tricked his girlfriend. He deserves to die!
      Wait, are we talking about the same Makoto?

  18. Hehehe, thank you for the chapter!

    About the ship wars… pointless. For one excuse or other, Makoto is typical virgin MC… sigh.

    From what I saw in Google translate, next 2 chapters are in Asora, then back to Academy town and Remb. sisters! I am quite looking foward to that one LOL

    1. Lol.
      Why you guys assume this is ship wars? It’s not. We’re just gathering opinion on which pairing is the most anticipated. Battle pair, comedy pair, etc. Not having anything to do with romance is also fine.

      1. In that case…

        1- Makoto x Hibiki and Tomoki! Hibiki for it being fun, Tomoki for it being a glorious trashing by Makoto! XDDDD If he knows about the brainwashing attempts against Tomoe, I wonder what Mokoto’s reaction will be like…

        2- Makoto x Mio, Tomoe and Ema! Because love-love harem is JUSTICE! XDDDDDD If Makoto got closer to Ema, I can see her asking for a pact! From what I have seen so far, MC wants a real romance to develop… in that case, only the ones closer to him have a real chance!

        2.1. Makoto x Rembrandt sisters! We still don’t know anything about them, so they are set apart for now. I got a few details from Google Translate, but nothing about their personalities so far;

        2.2. As for Makoto x Toa… I dont think so. Too many memories of someone else there. Makoto himself said it wasn’t good/healthy to anyone…

      2. Makoto and Hibiki, vs. Tomoki?
        Why didn’t I think about it before.
        Makoto alone is overkill. Hibiki will be there as the ‘straight-man’ character, because someone need to tsukkomi that.

  19. The problem is the MC, he loves no one and feels he is worthless and undeserving of love as he has mentioned many times before. H was even confessed to by his junior and president of the archery club and turned them both down because he feels worthless…….I don’t really like the mc and his feel sorry or his self attitude in that regard.

    However, even tho I can not read ahead, but it was hinted at the mc is close to being immortal, but prob can still die of normal means like Tomoe, most likely due to his pact with Mio. So I foresee his official marriage being to Tomoe, Mio, Ema and Toa.

    Toa I choose, as the author has suddenly hid her from the story, only saying she is leveling like crazy and becoming an influence in the region, gaining much fame. I believe her driving force is she is smitten by the mc and his power and is doing her all to become as powerful as possible to be able to stand at his side as his equal.

    It is going to take an eye opening event for the mc to finally accept himself and be able to accept the hearts of others……not sure what the author has in store, but sadly I feel it is the death of someone close to him to do this. By close I mean someone like Shiki…he is the only one who can die in this story imo to make this happen. Mio can not die, killing Tomoe would be a story killer, which many would drop this novel (including me), Ema and Toa are not THAT important right now tbh, so only leaves Shiki due to process of elimination, he sacrificing himself to save the MC, giving the MC words of advice and encouragement before he dies. hat is how I see it

    1. When an orc dies and he kills the adventurer that caused it, Makoto has started to change.
      True, he was prone to self depreciation back in Earth. But now he has power and has realized that it is also his responsibility to others, especially his subjects. Given time, he will be change into a more charismatic character. That’s how you get a true leader.

      1. Makoto should have killed the dwarf that never told him that the rings he was wearing were actually in danger of exploding one day. All they ever told MC was that the rings would help seal off his power. They never told him that the rings could be used like bombs. Makoto would never have treated his rings so carelessly if they told him he was essentially wearing mini bombs on each finger.

        And it was the orc’s decision to continue chasing instead of hiding behind mini Tomoe’s back despite the fact the mini Tomoe ordered the orc to come back.

        The adventurer never planned to use the ring like a bomb in the first place. She was actually surprised the ring ended up exploding and killing her other comrades. By throwing away the ring, she was hoping the orc would determine the ring’s retrieval to be more important than capturing her. However, unfortunately for everyone, the ring didn’t simply lie down on the grass after being thrown but exploded.

        Makes me wonder if even Makoto’s clothes have this unpleasant self-destruct function since those idiot dwarves made his clothes as well.

  20. Well I openly ship only two pairings:

    1. Makoto x Mio: why? Because only MIO will be able to ever make this garbage emo MC be able to ever have sex and start loving himself. He is so stupidly making excuses like how people won’t ever love him BECAUSE he looks like a freaking mamono, while in fact he won’t love others for self satisfaction (mantaining that stupid status quo he is so acostumed to, ugh). Only Mio IMO can open his eyes to true love (something he clearly has stated in past chapters as his objective in relationships, even though he’s never had one of those kind) cause she actually loves him not for his power or his background, but because he is HIM.

    2. Makoto x Tomoe: why? Because Tomoe is the real reason Makoto has an objetive in life. She gave him a reason to keep on going since the begining. She makes his life interesting, they are kinda like brother and big sister in a way, and also there is the romantic feelings of her towards him although not so deep as Mio’s (again IMO).

    Sorry but I don’t consider Ema has the tiniest chance against this stupid virgin piece of garbage since SHE IS TOO GOOD for this trash.

    Toa is out of the question, she isn’t atracted at all to Makoto. Not because he is FUGLY, but because she just admires him, and that’s that. There hasn’t been a single hint of romantic feelings towards him.

    The Rembrandt sisters: dunno, they will most likely be like cockteases for Makoto, but then again nothing that will mean deep since they aren’t special AT ALL (compared to other characters in this world) rather than being “hard to deal with”… (unless the author proves me wrong).

    Makoto x other guys: THE most likely if this goes on, but I don’t believe the author (a person who does not have the balls to make Makoto even freaking kiss a girl ever not even in flashbacks, let alone ever get laid; do something like pair him with another guy. I have a feeling the fans are pissed enough by now at this crap of a MC…)

    Anyway those are just my thoughts, thanks for the chapter. I apreciate it. Want more Mio and Tomoe chapters!😀

  21. Mio is so adorable, one of the best waifus. I hope the manga will reach these chapters soon so we can see her being this happy and fluffy😀
    She also reminds me somehow of Ariel and Shiro from Kumo desu ga🙂

    Thanks for the chapters!
