WR – Chapter 214-215: Hope

The fight between humans and monsters is about to enter a totally new phase.

The Demon Lords all declared that there will be a new era where monsters reigned supreme.

If it is just as they themselves explained, the Mother Monsters should have all died in order to give birth to them.

“So there’s no need to search for them anymore huh…” (Haine)

In exchange, the fight against the Demon Lords, that are far stronger than the Mother Monsters, has become inevitable.

They have the clear intent of eradicating humans.

This is already not the time to harden our resolves to defeat monsters.

An unavoidable battle with the existence of humans or monsters as its stakes.

But…

***

“I couldn’t do anything!!!” (Karen)

Karen-san was crying in grief.

We were currently inside an ethereal powered car and the inside was currently in a dark sunken mood.

Even though this was after a victory, everyone here didn’t have a single trace of being happy.

This car was currently returning us to Rudras Metropolis.

“If Haine hadn’t been there, we would have been wiped out.” (Mirack)

“The problem goes further than that… Those guys, we weren’t even in their sight.” (Celestis)

“Dasu!” (Sasae)

“That damn Raphael. He was still alive!” (Hyue)

The disappointment of the heroes was serious.

The Demon Lords didn’t even consider them as enemies.

The confidence of Karen-san and the others, after not even being seen as insects on the ground, was in shambles.

Even though the previous heroes battle had been settled and we would be unified more from now on…

“Uhm…” (Haine)

I want to do something to encourage them.

“Wait.”

I thought about that as I spoke out, but I was stopped by someone.

The previous hero, Abi Kyouka.

The previous heroes who fought similarly in that battlefield were also riding in this car.

Excluding the light hero Sunnysol Ates, who had at some point in time disappeared, the remaining four heroes faced their respective juniors.

“Mirack, you are a splendid fire hero.” (Kyouka)

“Sis…” (Mirack)

The unexpected words of her senior made Mirack lift up her covered face.

“You had become far stronger than the time I knew you. You stepped onto a domain that I don’t know of. And after fighting together with you, I have personally felt it.” (Kyouka)

“Really. We be simply out of the times now~.” (Yoneko)

The previous earth hero, Yoneko-san, also speaks as she hugs her cousin, Sasae-chan.

“The era has separated into a completely different path ta one that ain’t having nothing to do with past or current. As expected, being shut in the countryside makes ya unable ta tell what be going on with society. And it made me unable ta tell how desperately Sasae-chan be working.” (Yoneko)

“Yoneko-neechan!” (Sasae)

Sasae-chan had watery eyes while she was being crushed by the breasts of Yoneko-san.

“It is vexing to say, but I will be matching the opinions of the others here. Because it looks like the current trend is cooperation and harmony.” (Sarasa)

“Quack-senpai!” (Celestis)

The high prided previous water hero still had her stubborn attitude left.

“Celestis-san, you continue doing your best just like that. Since it looks like if you don’t do your best, my celebrity lifestyle will be in danger as well. So I have no choice but to cheer you on.” (Sarasa)

“Thanks! As expression of gratitude, I will send a signed color paper to your house with the name of your husband!” (Celestis)

“As I thought, I hate this person!” (Sarasa)

The previous and current water heroes were both as they always are.

“Your sister-in-law will be rooting for you.” (Juo)

“Shut up! I will defeat you before the Demon Lords!” (Hyue)

And the wind previous and current heroes were even more as usual.

“Haine-san!” (Karen)

Looking at this spectacle, Karen-san says this.

“There’s no time for us to be losing heart. Heroes are everyone’s expectation, hope. Even if we are defeated, we can’t just stand still!” (Karen)

Little by little, strength was returning to her voice.

“Right. No matter how strong I am, that is something I can’t do. That is something only Karen-san and the others can do. Become the hope of everyone, lift them up, and turn into their strength to walk.” (Haine)

That is the strength of the heroes, that is the meaning of heroes. The reason why the heroes are the strongest.

Everyone here possesses that power. No matter the element, no matter if they are past or present.

“We previous heroes will declare this here and now! We agree to your Hero Alliance!” (Kyouka)

Kyouka represented them and lifts up her voice in this cramped car.

The other previous heroes also nod in silence.

“If there’s something we can do to help, we won’t neglect our assistance in it! We have just been taught the scariness of the Demon Lords. Now that we have understood the urgency of the situation, we can’t just be taking it easy simply because we have already retired! But right now, it is your era! You people are the main cast!” (Kyouka)

“We be supporting ya people from the shadows~.” (Yoneko)

“But if you people are too disappointing, we will be taking the position though.” (Sarasa)

“Hiding in the shadows……that’s a nice relaxing position for me.” (Juo)  

This is the only positive effect that I felt from the appearance of the Demon Lords.

That is, in the face of an enormous enemy, the sense of unity from everyone has been strengthened even more.

Adding to that, there was also the previous and current heroes match that also deepened their understandings with each other.

The world, that had been apart before the match, is now increasing more and more in unity.

***

The car had arrived at Rudras Metropolis.

I want to have Karen-san and the others, who have overcome a series of battles, take a rest.

Thinking this, I had stepped out of the car first and was met with something unexpected.

“Karen-san, come out and see.” (Haine)

“Eh?”

“It is amazing.” (Haine)

There was a mountain of people.

It wasn’t only the people that were spectating the previous and current heroes match at the dome. There were also regular citizens of Rudras Metropolis.

Everyone was watching the battle from the far-sighted camera.

The victory that all the heroes of the earth, water, fire, wind, and light had obtained by fighting together has moved everyone.

“Thanks! Hero-samas, thank you!” “We owe all of you our lives!” “Watching you join strengths in battle moved me!” “Hurrah on friendship!” “It is the time for the five churches to join as one!”

The heroes that came out from the car one after the other were showered by this welcoming.

I could tell that their hearts, that had been cooled by the terrifying power of the Demon Lords, were being warmed by this encouragement.

Their cheeks were flushing by that warmth.

“It is a triumphant return!”

That’s right. The return of Karen-san and the others was exactly that. One of triumph.

They returned after a victory.

They probably have begun feeling inside of them that they have actually won.

The long previous and new heroes battle, and then the Slime battle that began not long after; overcoming them all, this was the moment that rewarded Karen-san and the others.

  • 215: Freebie

There were the women looking at the shining moment of the heroes from a step back.

The previous heroes.

“Showered in praise with all five heroes gathered huh. This is a spectacle that we wouldn’t be able to imagine in our era.” (Kyouka)

“But it be a nice sight~.” (Yoneko)

“It is certain that the era has changed. But I do have the feeling that it has progressed. At the very least it wasn’t a regression.” (Sarasa)

“…Too bright. It hurts.” (Juo)

Heroes compete and quarrel with each other; these girls lived in an era where such things were natural.

They once rebuked their juniors who tried to change that perception, but now it looks like a different view of it has begun to sprout inside of them.

That sprout can be considered a worthy harvest in today’s battle.

“…I will be returning now then~.” (Yoneko)

“Eh?! Already?!” (Haine)

The current heroes were busy interacting with the people, so I took the role of stopping her.

But…

“I left mah husband and older children at the countryside after all~. I already be in a mood where I be missing ‘em so much I can’t endure it anymore~.” (Yoneko)

I see.

The heroes that have already retired have their own family to mind now.

Today they pushed themselves to participate. We have to let them return to where they belong.

But then…

“Oi, Yoneko, Yoneko!!”

A throaty voice was calling the name of Yoneko-san somewhere.

I was wondering that as I look around and…a robust man was approaching here?!

“Ara!! Why are ya at a place like this?!” (Yoneko)

Yoneko-san made a happy expression as she jumped onto the man. And then, without minding about being in public, they kiss!

“Uhm…could it be that you are the husband of Yoneko-san?” (Haine)

Judging from the situation, that’s the only thing it can be.

“That’s right! Ya were supposed to be staying at the house. What happened?!” (Yoneko)

The husband-san that I could even confuse for a bear was making an embarrassed expression and gesture that didn’t match his big frame.

“Yoneko, soon after you left, the children began getting rowdy, you see. I was also getting so lonely I couldn’t endure it, so I ended up chasing after you.”

“Mommy!” “Mommy!”

From the back of the big man, two children peek their faces out. From what I see, they are completely twins.

“Even ya two! I be so glad. Mama couldn’t live without seeing ya~! Danna-sama <husband> as well! I will go get the little one from Sobo-chan right now~! With that, all the family will be reunited~!” (Yoneko)

Yoneko-san looks incredibly happy.

I see. I heard that Yoneko-san had given birth to her third child after around 1 year of having married, but the first two were twins huh.

When I heard about it, I was heavily disconcerted by the math not matching but if it’s twins…

…..It still doesn’t match?!

“Sarasa! The rose that blooms in my heart!”

“Ah, Danna-sama!” (Sarasa)

What is it now?!

When I turn around to check the vigorous voice that came from another direction, I see a handsome man with a kaiser moustache hugging Sarasa-san!

“Danna-sama! Why are you here? I left the house without prior notice, and yet, why?!” (Sarasa)

“Sorry, Sarasa!! I didn’t know you were so tormented by this!! I need you! Even if it was a political marriage, right now for me, you are a heavenly flower in full bloom! A pearl shining in the ocean! Even if I were to conquer the seven seas, I wouldn’t be able to find a treasure as valuable as you!”

Could it be…that’s the husband of Sarasa that was obsessed with idols?

“I have apologized to father in your sted. Everything is my fault. I won’t be divorcing you by no means. Will you please return together with me?”

“Then, then Danna-sama! Will you be holding back your idol hobbies from now on?!” (Sarasa)

“Of course! You are my greatest treasure!”

“You will stop buying idol goods as well, right?!” (Sarasa)

“I will cut it off completely! …No, how about leaving it at half the pace?”

“You will also not go to the live performance next week and will pass the time with me, right?!” (Sarasa)

“But what about the ticket I already bought?!”

For some reason, I feel a storm coming.

And just at that moment…

“Heya~! The idol hero Celestis appears like a maelstrom! You are the husband-sama that is always cheering for me, right? Thank you very much!” (Celestis)

“The first time I talk to Celes-tan in the flesh!!!!!!!!!!”

“With what kind of timing did you decide on coming?! Go away this instant!” (Sarasa)

It felt like the storm won’t be leaving anytime soon, so I averted my eyes.

The husbands of the previous heroes huh.

They were worried about their wife and secretly came here to cheer for them huh.

Well, they must hold an important place in their heart. I can understand how they feel.

Is what I thought when…huh? There’s an unknown young man where Kyouka-san is.

“W-Why did you come here too? You have your work at the inn.” (Kyouka)

“But I was worried about Kyouka-san. It is natural for a couple, right?”

Eh?

“Eh?”

Her junior Mirack was looking at the man and woman pairing with her pointed finger trembling.

“S-Sis Kyouka? W-Who is the man there?” (Mirack)

“What, so you didn’t know? He is my husband. We married last month, you see.” (Kyouka)

Oi.

“Wait a moment please! Sis had been defeated by the Fire Cow Phalaris, so you retired from being a hero and was training all this time in order to vindicate your honor, and had just returned!” (Mirack)

“Umu. That’s why, in the middle of my training, I by chance stayed in the inn he managed. From there on, a lot of things happened, you see.” (Kyouka)

The shy smile of her merciless predecessor made the expression of Mirack freeze.

And when I look at another place, there was Juo and Shiva…

“Shiva-sama…I love you…” (Juo)

“Hm? Did you say something?” (Shiva)

“It is nothing…” (Juo)

Right after, Shiva was once again tackled by the angered fire cow Phalaris.

What’s with this lovey-dovey atmosphere spreading from all sides?!

In this position where you would get crushed by that love atmosphere, there were girls in their teens who were sensitive to it.

“What?! What’s with this unsatisfying sensation!” (Mirack)

“They say that heroes are justice and that they don’t get angry and don’t hate, but just at this moment, I don’t think I will be able to protect that…” (Celestis)

“Even though we fought with our lives at stake, why am I being attacked by this feeling of wasted effort-dasu!” (Sasae)

“For now, I will kill Juo. I will kill her before I kill the Demon Lords.” (Hyue)

The heroes had darkness spreading in their hearts.

“Well, it can’t be helped. 90% of the reasons for the heroes retirements is marriage after all.” (Karen)

At some point in time, Karen-san was standing at my side, moreover, she was holding my hand.

“K-Karen-san? Why are you holding my hand?” (Haine)

“It can’t be helped~.” (Karen)

“Uhm…”

“It can’t be helped, right?” (Karen)

There’s no way it can’t be helped!

If Karen-san were to retire now, it would be trouble in many meanings!

Please refrain!


TLN: And with this, the arc ends and the ‘Light God Hero Arc’ will begin. Don’t know what it is about, but it sounds awesome.

  1. Well, family reunions…
    I don’t particularly have anything to talk about with my family, so I’m fine without having them all the time…
    Still, the current heroes really seem to have it out for the former heroes…
    And the former heroes are retaliating with marriage and children.

  2. Thanks for the chapters!!! 😀
    A great battle come forth against the demon lords as well with the arrival of demon lord Lucifer and also what happened to Ates?
    Another thing is that Celestis is such a troll here and that Haine is right, the numbers don’t match up at all.

      1. So really, the best course of action is to work for the independence of humanity while holding off on it for as long as possible.

        Then, once this matter with Demon Lords is over with, they can…”celebrate”.

    1. I’m down for that.

      Nova is probably the most useless out of all the Four Base Gods since all he knows is destruction. Even Coacervate is at least an okay schemer that might come in handy with the Demon Lords. We might as well put the cow’s passion somewhere constructive.

  4. The Light God Hero arc? That sounds kickass! 😀

    Ha! The former Heros’ husbands brought us some much-needed levity after everything that’s been going on. Plenty of d’aww material here. A maiden’s jealousy burns bright.
    The heroes may have won the war (of politics), but the former heroes win the other war(of love). Karen is the worst casualty. She got swept up in the mood and, if I understood right, was ready to retire to marry Haine on the spot while ignoring everything coming in the future.

    Yoneko is more or less as expected. Her delight at seeing them was heartwarming regardless. I was not expecting Kyousa though. Really? One month ago? No, before that, just how would someone go about charming someone like her?

    And then there’s Sarasa and her husband. From how much he was waxing lyrical about his feelings for his wife, he seems like sweet guy. I think it’s safe to peg him as just an overenthusiastic idiot. Sarasa seems to quite like him as well.

    I was kinda disappointed since I had my heart set on Celestis inviting Sarasa to perform at one of her concerts though. That would’ve been fantastic and could probably helped a lot. But no, she just butts in and makes things even more complicated. Kinda like a certain beloved Cuddlebuns from another series…

    1. Cuddlebuns ? Where did that come from ? I need to know.

      … Karen being the being the worst casualty is a given. I mean, she has been in love with Haine the longest (between the heroes). One year. One whole year! That’s how long it took for Yoneko to give birth twice so Haine should’ve marry Karen and make childrens already!
      *The maths still didn’t add up.

      The next arc will be Karen-centric I guess.
      Karen vs. Ates !
      The reveal of Lucifer !
      The end of Inflation !
      Just a few guesses of what will happen.

      1. I’ll answer the Cuddlebuns question tomorrow, if nobody else does first. She’s also known as Cotton Candy 2.0, but that’s an in-joke within an in-joke.

        Regarding Haine…Well, that’s not really a fair comparison, now, is it? There’s an incredible difference in momentum.
        Yoneko was already with her (future) husband by the time she had her first baby. Who knows how long it took for her and her husband to build their relationship up to that point?

        A more fair comparison would be starting the countdown from the first time Karen has Haine’s child.

      2. I’ll wait until 00:00 for your answer.

        “A more fair comparison would be starting the countdown from the first time Karen has Haine’s child.”
        THAT. IS. IMPOSSIBLE. I will not allow it! Not before Yorishiro (best girl) had her move first.

        Liked by 1 person

      3. Actually, that’s a good point.

        Since Yorishiro and Karen have that synergy going on where they keep bouncing more and more…”momentum” off each other, there’s no real way for Haine’s relationship to ever fairly compare to Yoneko’s.

      4. Cuddlebuns comes from the comedy genius manga: Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai. A character in that story who is sweet and fluffy, but at times makes some suspicious cunning moves you can’t tell if they are deliberate (daughter of a politician).
        Cotton Candy is a character from ‘Tomo-chan was Onnanoko!’ and she basically represents the same traits as above.

        Judging from how versed Psych is, I would say he reads from Mangahere and delights himself in the delicious taste of Tsukkomis.

        Btw, those mangas are 100% in my recommendation list.
        Especially Kaguya-sama wo Kokurasetai. Comedy gold.

      6. Guilty as charged, and recommendation seconded! The author of Kaguya-sama wo Kokurasetai, Akasaka Aka, has been quickly cementing himself as one of my favorite mangaka in recent years. He’s managed to wring out comedy gold out of every cliche the series has stumbled across, and has never failed to impress.

        Actually, his other work, ib: Instant Bullet, gets glowing recommendations too. It sorta goes to a dark place, but you can see some of its influence bleed into Kaguya-sama.

        Reigokai nailed it with “delights himself’ as well. I’m not too crazy about Mangahere, but that’s the only place I know of that has an actively working Tsukkomi function, which is…basically like the chapter comments here, but spread from scene-to-scene, panel-to-panel.

    The Demon Lords have been referencing a “Great Demon Lord Lucifer”
    Lucifer in Abrahamic theology is known as the “Light-Bringer”

  10. “Dark matter set” it will never stop being an awesome way to end a chapter lol

    Ty for the chapter

    A question: is it really impossible for haine to create a mother monster? Like I know it takes time and power, but if in a day he could create something big enough to stop a tsunami, maybe in a month or two he can make something to at least stop rampaging monsters.

    Also, Lucifer is a light elemental right? Yoshiro said she didn’t create a mother monster but she did know how to make em, maybe she just forgot he made it?

    Like

    1. That’s a good point. Even if it’s some kind of lesser Mother Monster that lacks the longevity or power, creating a monster that consistently produces protectors of humanity should be beneficial no matter what, shouldn’t it?

      Well, the issue of the Mother Monster gaining sentience and creating a Demon Lord aside (which is unlikely considering the fundamentally different directive), it’s probably still a bad idea to make humanity dependent on a god’s power.

      Like

      1. Yeah, even a semi-mother monster would be enough, just to have more troops to fight the low lv monster while haine and company fight the lords. Hell with how this novel is that mother might even create a lord that’s on humanity’s side, probably a girl, and probably one that would haine daddy… actually I might to see that, it would be funny xd
