Chapter 178: Grasping Forces

Sorry for the delay… Oh and also I’d like to thank the silent patient readers.. hahaha..   also the one’s who read my novel.. the ones who gave me generous comments and gentle criticisms..  Enjoy.

It’s been four hours since we departed

Firo’s status decrease is being suppressed by Atla

Firo’s Lvl. points are declining steadily

The Lvl. down speed have decreased but it’s still a severe situation

“Atla, Do you know where the power is going?”(Naofumi)

“Yes, Firo tells me which direction it’s heading” (Atla)

“Okay” (Naofumi)

“Haaaa…. Haaaa….”(Firo)


Atlas is riding Firo’s back and I entrusted driving the carriage to Melty

Rat and Taniko puts the situation in order, Sadina is watching the back

Firo is getting considerably exhausted

It’ll be dangerous if we don’t make it there fast

Motoyasu’s beloved Firo is in a great pinch

Where and what is that fellow doing at such a time

Raising a flag is now impossible

That guy isn’t  even around when you needed him

“Where on earth did he intend to fly?”(Naofumi)

“I can sense that he is somewhere over there”(Atla)

It’s still midnight. The sun will rise eventually, but it’s still far.

“Worst case scenario, we have to get rid of Gaelion, Do you understand?”(Naofumi)

I told Taniko directly.  Taniko was the closest one to him. Even though Gaelion is mine, I think that I have to say it


“It is strangely logical, I thought that you’d refuse it more” (Naofumi)

“it’s not like we’re giving up just yet”(Taniko)

“Well, I know” (Naofumi)

“I understand that it is a bad decision to make. However, I refuse to consider not doing something about it” (Taniko)

“Is that so… then I will get rid of any hesitation” (Naofumi)

“I get it! It’s our last resort! But we absolutely have to help Gaelion” (Taniko)

I’m trying to be as casual as I can be about this matter

I understand that Gaelion is what’s tormenting Firo

Gaelion is a huge asset for us,  Ofcourse, getting rid of him is going to be our last option. I want to avoid that as much as possible

“I hate the Hero” (Taniko)

Taniko sheds tears and she kept on crying all the while

“I’m used to being hated”(Naofumi)

“It’s not you” (Taniko)

I can somehow sympathize with Taniko, It is something unlikely a Hero would do but not me.

but the one she is thinking of…. is it Itsuki? Saving people half-way, the barbaric Justice.

But this feeling is something different

Who exactly have I become?

Where would such a thing fly anyways?

“Rat.. Where do you think did Gaelion go to?” (Naofumi)

“If I were to predict it, I think it would probably be the East of Melromarc”(Rat)

“East huh?” (Naofumi)

If I remember correctly east of Melromarc is where we fought the rotting dragon…. Ah right

“It’s the area where we faced the rotting dragon” (Naofumi)

“I see..  It is merely going back to his own territory, right?”(Rat)

“I think so too” (Naofumi)

“What should this Onee-san do?(Sadina)

While I was talking with Rat, Sadina answers from the back.  I still can’t come up with a solution, there’s also a probability of encountering monsters at this hour.

Actually, there are several monsters that are following from behind

But Sadina is intercepting them with magic and harpoons

The front is being manage by Atla, Firo and Melty.  But Firo can’t fight because she is already struggling on pulling the carriage

It’s unreasonable to force yourself

I also used Meteor shield to protect Atla and Firo at the bare minimum

“I’m thinking of a way to return Gaelion back to his sense.  You should be more vigilant of your surroundings” (Naofumi)


“If you have other ideas to help Gaelion then spit it out. And make it faster” (Naofumi)

“……. Then maybe”(Rat)

“Can’t we just pin him down and take it out of his mouth by hands? But we need to use a tool that he cannot bite through” (Rat)

“It’ll be alright. My defensive power is no joke”(Naofumi)

“Well, we don’t have to worry about the Count” (Rat)

“Rat, can you suppress Gaelion using your drug?”(Naofumi)

“Do you even need to ask me that?” (Rat)

Rats shows me a syringe with the drug in it

“This drug is quite strong. It is strong enough that even a dragon cannot move for a while”(Rat)

“I see, then I’m counting on you” (Naofumi)

Raphtalia is not here, but the Lvl. around here is not very high

Gaelion’s Lvl. is increasing little by little and status is getting really high because of the shield’s correction

Draining Firo’s status indicates his status

It’s like fighting a dragon-shaped Firo

I think I’ll be fine but the other slaves will be in trouble if they were to receive an attack

If a god exist, it seems he wants to see me suffer

“First, let’s have a meeting. Rat, It’ll be good if you weaken him even if it’s just a little” (Naofumi)

“Okay. Will do”(Rat)

“Sadina I will approach Gaelion and you will be on guard with enemies getting near us” (Naofumi)

“…. And me?”(Taniko)

Taniko is shaking while asking

“Can you fight?” (Naofumi)

“errr…  If I do Gaelin will be badly injured and it’ll be dangerous”(Taniko)

This strong sense of responsibility

“What can you do?” (Naofumi)

I don’t know how Taniko fights as well

Back then I saw her holding a stick but what is she doing now these days?

“I’m good with magic attacks, among everyone else this is something that I can take pride in”(Taniko)

“Hooo…  What kind of magic?” (Naofumi)

“I don’t really understand. But as for the woman who’s teaching me magic, she said that the magic that I’m use is different” (Taniko)

The magic shop owner taught the slaves various kinds of magic. I did ask her to do that but what kind of magic did she teach Taniko?

“I don’t understand. You, what kind of magic are you using if you don’t understand what you are using?” (Naofumi)

“I’m using the one that I learned from my father”(Taniko)

I have a feeling that it is some kind of a unique magic

I don’t understand even a little of it.  Maybe I’ll understand it better if we go into battle

I don’t have to the power to understand the slaves’ ability

In MMO there’s a function that lets you monitor the guild member’s current status when you are raising them

In Raids and Castle wars monitoring your allies will be your lifeline. In MMO I can choose my allies by considering their job and Lvl.

But I can’t evaluate them if I don’t see how they fight, Failure will occur again and again if the party is not organized

There’s also a means where they could learn by letting them experience it first hand

Pairing them with people they know to teach them the strategy is a sure fire way of doing it

This is the evil truth because rules don’t apply with it

This is the very reason that I feel like this is still a game

“If I pair you with Atla, can you cooperate with her?” (Naofumi)

“Uh yeah” (Taniko)

“What about Melty?” (Naofumi)

“That girl? What kind of magic is she using?” (Taniko)

“Isn’t it water? I think that’s what it is” (Naofumi)

I think Sadina is really suitable with Melty’s strongest magic. Afterall Sadina is an Aquatic type of Beastman and has a high perception with magic that is close to her habitat

“How about you Sadina?” (Naofumi)

“Well, I can do both melee and magic”(Sadina)

Then Rat is the one who understands Demon ecology and Gaelion’s abnormal condition

“Well then, I’ll be the vanguard and those who are good with magic will be at the rear and Sadina…”(Naofumi)

Atla can’t fight because she’s suppressing Firo’s curse.

I need more assistance given the situation

“Sadina, Please attack from the rear with your harpoon” (Naofumi)

“Yes.. Yes..”(Sadina)


“Uh yeah”(Taniko)

“We don’t have any choice but to go by this strategy” (Naofumi)

I just noticed, but this party has a high number of females in it

Although I’m not bothered with Raphtalia, Firo and Occasionally with Rishia. I think that this is a kind of party that Motoyasu would make

I should treat Fohl more kindly. He may be a SisCon but I’d like a male companion.

“Count, Are you thinking of something strange”(Rat)

How do you know that I’m thinking about something like that?  Do the people in this world also have sixth sense?

Or is that what you would call a Woman’s Intuition? Just kidding.

Furthermore, Several hours have passed and we’ve arrived at the east village. The sun also began to rise.

The means of transportation through Firo is really fast but Gaelion’s flying speed is something else

The mountains in the Eastern Village is covered in clouds… It’s really dark(TLN: just to clear he meant that the mountain side is covered in clouds.. not the entire eastern part…)

“Oh… It’s Saint-sama”(Villager)

“It is the Shield Hero-sama”(Village)

The villagers spotted us and approached us… For some reason Taniko covered her whole body with a sheet of cloth

“This morning a Villager heard a cry from dragon that came from the mountains”(Villager)

“It’s is true that there is a dragon that escape and ran over here, we are here because we are chasing after it” (Naofumi)


I didn’t say that it came from our village because our reputation would be affected

But the villagers who can somehow understand what’s happening fell silent


I looked at Atla and Firo’s situation

They seemed really tired

I was able to pinpoint the location where Gaelion ran away

“We haven’t taken any rest since yesterday, go and take some rest for a while” (Naofumi)


“if you are not in your best condition, we may not be able to win. Overdoing it is unacceptable so please agree and wait a little bit” (Naofumi)


I registered the Village into the portal shield and it would be better If I leave a message to the Village(TLN: He’s referring to the leaving a message to the demi-human village)

“Alright, It’s best if we could return to the village when something bad were to happen. Portal Shield!” (Naofumi)

Ofcourse, I memorized the location and went back to the Village to check if Raphtalia and the others have returned

… I can warp 7 people including me

It says 6 people but I’m not included in it

In short I can warp 7 people including me

I suck at explaining things

Let’s just say 7 people in total

Or is it based on 3 people + my Lv / 20 kind of condition?

Firo and Atla is leaning against the wall and is resting alternately

I reconfirmed her status

Firo’s Lvl. is still decreasing little by little. This is dangerous

“Please rest more until it’s time” (Naofumi)


“Please understand that I can’t make medicine strong enough to suppress it” (Naofumi)


“Firo-chan…here’s some water”(Melty)

“Thank you Mel”(Firo)

I asked if they’ve seen Raphtalia but the results are not good

I explained our escape with the portal shield and the cooldown

I hope that Rapthalia gets back soon so we can start immediately

Time is the problem

Judging from Firo’s condition she won’t even last for half a day

I can’t do anything but pray that Raphtalia and the others gets back from their training soon

“I guess it’s impossible afterall” (Naofumi)

The cooldown has finished but Raphtalia isn’t back yet

We don’t have a choice but to stop Gaelion with this people

We just have to prepare for the worst

“ Atla and Firo please rest in the village”(Naofumi)

“Please Master”(Firo)

“We don’t have to travel long distance anymore. Travelling is just a stone’s throw from here. Don’t overdo it” (Naofumi)

“But…. I want to go”(Firo)

“Stop it.. If you force yourself, you would only be too much of a burden. You can barely move yourself, you’re already at your limit” (Naofumi)

“no… no”(Firo)

“I said Atla and Firo” (Naofumi)

“I understand. Firo, Let’s just leave it to Naofumi-sama”(Atla)

“But Firo…”(Firo)

“Naofumi-sama is saying that taking Firo along is too much of a load to take. But even if he doesn’t say so I will still stop you”(Atla)

Firo reluctantly nodded in Atla’s every word

Atla who has some trouble speaking because of her illness and Firo having the same situation because of the curse. This approach may become effective

“How about you Melty?” (Naofumi)

“If it’s for Firo I would do anything”(Melty)

“Don’t force yourself. Because you’re the next queen.” (Naofumi)

“I understand but this is something more important than being a Queen”(Melty)

Can’t be helped they are close friends after all

After I leave and return to my own world Firo would probably stay with Melty

“Firo!, Please wait a moment”(Melty)


“Please rest quietly in bed”(Melty)


I held Firo’s face and then she cried because of the feeling of helplessness

This is the first time that I did such a thing

This is too much to bear

“It’s time to leave. Portal Shield” (Naofumi)

Then we came back to the east village and have begun to walk towards the mountain filled with dark clouds.

    hmm…for some reason it just suddenly comes to my mind……did naofumi never bring his phone and wallet to the library where he got teleported to this world? because i dont remember them being mentioned when the queen giving back all his belongings other than his clothes….or she did?…… btw i guess its normal for someone to go outside with their phone and wallet .-.

    and if he have a handphone his companion must be giving so much interest on it O_O *i am weird*

    I actually got faster with translating… It was delayed because of some unavoidable circumstances..


  9. An Avid reader December 1, 2014 at 5:30 pm

    well, to respond to meowoof’s question, the telephone will need to be connected to a satellite or some form of transmitter in order to receive and sent out signals, so even if he did have a phone and managed to mass-produce it, unless he has a signal, its useless.

    and Hatoken – hugs and kisses all the way for all the wonderful translations 😀

    Not my favorite Firo =(


  11. jimmyev December 1, 2014 at 5:44 pm

    Your question referring to ‘Hyde’ I can only think of two things.
    Either they are referring to the ‘Hide’ such as save your hide/skin
    or it’s an allusion to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Best I’ve got, hope it helps.


  12. Darkanlan December 1, 2014 at 5:46 pm

    The hyde line is probably referring to jeckle and hyde, standing for either inner demon or two faced.


  13. Senpai December 1, 2014 at 5:46 pm

    Thank you so much for translating this! ❤


  14. mahaira765 December 1, 2014 at 5:48 pm

    “I don’t understand. You, what kind of magic are you using if you don’t understand what you are using?” (Taniko) It seems like this is what Naofumi said.


  15. kookiedreamer December 1, 2014 at 5:49 pm

    考えられるのは樹……か? 中途半端に救ったあのハイド=ジャスティスの蛮行
    The one she is thinking of…. is it Itsuki? Saving people half-way, the barbarity of that Hidden Justice.
    [T/N: Perfect Hidden Justice (パーフェクト=ハイド=ジャスティス) is the name Itsuki’s using to go undercover]

    “Well then, I’ll be the vanguard and those who are good with magic will be at the rear and Sadian…”

    I should be a bit more grateful but still I’d like to have a male companion because I’m not a siscon
    *I should treat Fohl more kindly. He may be a SisCon but I’d like a male companion.
    Fohl is the one with the sister complex]

    Does the people of this world also have the ability of a Satori?
    *Do the people in this world also have a perception ability?
    It’s talking about having a sixth sense.

    YAEA!!!! *Jumps for joy dancing a jig.* New chapter and more foreshadowing on Taniko.

    I am grateful for the chapter.

    Now that this chapter is done I am eager for the next 9 chapters (187 should be the end of the Wrath dragon arc).
    Sigh… each chapter only adds suspense for the next. Such a vicious cycle.

    Could she be a dragon slayer??
    Thanks for the translation.


  33. Anonymous December 2, 2014 at 2:02 am

    There’s one part I don’t I understand. The part that Taniko said that she hate the Hero and Naofumi thought it’s Ren. When did Taniko and Ren meet??


  34. ZaneNight December 2, 2014 at 3:54 am

    Thank you! Hatoken-san!
    I really appreciate your dedication to translate for us!
    =D Many thanks!

    Hmm…then…Taniko’s father was the dragon? She was not from the village?…I undestand why she hate Ren.
    Thanks for the Chapter.


    • hatoken December 2, 2014 at 12:52 pm

      Come to think of it… I remember someone hating Ren from the dragonn race back when I read the christmas special… I may be wrong but this one but maybe this and that are connected

      Agreed. Hatoken really doesn’t care much about punctuation/grammar.


      • hatoken December 3, 2014 at 5:53 am

        that was mean…it’s not like I don’t care at all.. it’s just that I’m not an english major and english is not my native language… so I don’t know how to properly do it.

    Actually, I think every one of Hatoken’s chapters have corresponding edited preview chapters. Whoever did this, I prostrate myself before you.
