97. Spirit god sword

Eleonor laughed while shedding tears.

“Thank you but its fine. I’m magic created to fight the mazoku and I cannot resist if used. I’ll just continue producing origin clones of Zeshia which will be used to invade Deiruheido.” (Eleonor)

10,000 Zeshias using <Asura> will be an unbelievable amount of war potential.

On top of that, each person can use <Gavel> to become a human bomb. It’s a threat to Deiruheido that cannot be overlooked.

“You mazoku don’t need to get caught up with human issues. Kill me and protect Deiruheido.” (Eleonor)

Human circumstances huh? Half of that statement might be true.

“Eleonor. This is the battle I left behind 2000 years ago and the people living in this peaceful age shouldn’t be involved in such a tedious war.” (Arnos)

If I’d destroyed Jerga at that time then none of this would have happened.

“You and Zeshia are also the same.” (Arnos)

Diego is also seized by that hatred and is passing it on.

“I need to clear my debts. The Zeshia’s that have already gone will not come back but the ones here can still lead a peaceful life.” (Arnos)

“If everyone forgot everything like they were supposed to then neither me nor Zeshia should even exist.” (Eleonor)

“What’s done is done.” (Arnos)

Eleonor and Zeshia have already been born.

“I’ve caused you pain for almost 2000 years.” (Arnos)

Eleonor’s body trembles.

Suffering and more suffering. A life that did nothing but suffer with her only hope being that she might one day disappear.

So much misfortune.

“This is my mistake, therefore I’ll make sure your next 2000 years are happy.” (Arnos)

Eleonrs smile disappears.

“I can’t erase what happened but at the very least let me try and make it up to you.” (Arnos)

“….I’m human. Well not really since I’m magic….” (Eleonor)

“What’s that got to do with anything?” (Arnos)

A tear runs down her cheek.

The tears that are melting into the holy water are clearly visible to my demon eyes.

“…..As long as <Ask> exists the humans will continue to hold a grudge against the mazoku….. We can only fight until one of use is destroyed…….” (Eleonor)

“Then I just need to destroy <Ask>.” (Arnos)

Eleonor shakes her head with a sad expression and speaks in a feeble voice.

“…Hey….. If you say something that gives me so much hope…..I might start to dream….” (Eleonor)

“I’ll grant it. For 2000 years you have suffered. Any dream I can’t make come true is nothing but a lie.”(Arnos)

Humans who continue to suffer and die without hope. If that’s the world’s system then I shall destroy it.

“I’m in front of you now. You’ve endured until today and that’s more than enough.” (Arnos)

“….But…..” (Eleonor)

At that time a dim voice leaked from somewhere.

A faint desire.

“…He….lp…..”

It came from the 10 years old Zeshia in the holy water ball next to Eleonor.

“…..Zeshia….?” (Eleonor)

Elenor looks astonished.

Zeshia who specialises in combat and shouldn’t be able to speak was now speaking.

“…..Help……….mama…….” (Zeshia)

Unable to bear Zeshia’s words Elenor starts sobbing.

Endless tears fall from her eyes.

“….Sorry, Arnos-kun…. I was saying something unfair. Please, I beg you.” (Eleonor)

Eleonor begs me like before but this time her wish is much stronger.

“Help. Zeshia and me….. We’ve already fought so much.” (Eleonor)

“I promise. I won’t say I’ll do it right now but I will help you.” (Arnos)

“…..Yes…..” (Eleonor)

Eleanor’s tears spill like rain.

“……Absolutely promise….” (Eleonor)

“I’ll stake my name on it.” (Arnos)

To liberate them I need to end 2000 years of hatred between the humans and the mazoku.

To erase Jerga’s origin which has merged with <Ask> I’ll need to return <Ask> to its original form, however, unlike Eleonor <Ask> isn’t humanoid type magic. That means there’s no clear shape to Jerga’s origin. It’s become part of the worlds reason, order and concept.

Correcting that will not be a trivial matter. I’ll be changing the law that says something falls if you drop it. It’s like taking a change done by my principle destroying sword and making it permanent.

“Eh…..?” (Eleonor)

I just felt a big disturbance in magic power as well.

It’s not in this building but somewhere outside. It’s not far though. Lake Seimei probably.

“….I think its the temple….” (Eleonor)

I activate my demon eyes and send them into the building next door while also intercepting a <Liikus>.

“….What’s that!?”

“Enemy attack! Enemy attack! Enemies have invaded the temple!”

“That’s one of the old seven demon emperors!  The old seven demon emperors have appeared! Three members confirmed! Medin Gaasa, Zoro Angaat and Eldora Zaia! Requesting immediate support!!”

“Guh! So it really was the work of the Mazoku…… We thought it was the holy mother they were after but it was the spirit god sword………..!!”

Some of the old seven demon emperors have come here?

“…..What’s happening…?” (Eleonor)

“Something a little troublesome. I’ll go and check it out.” (Arnos)

“Be careful.” (Eleonor)

“Aah.” (Arnos)

I used <Gatom> to try and transfer to the temple, however, a magic formation was deployed at my exit point cancelling it.

The spirit god sword must be reacting to the invasion of the old seven demon emperors since the barrier its deployed is much stronger than last time.

I use <Gatom> again and transfer to outside the temple.

“Guaaaaaah….!!”

Several soldiers were thrown outside the temple.

The doors were completely open so I marched right in.

Holy light covers the entire area with pure white radiance.

Looking around a number of soldiers had already fallen.

I marched right to the back of the temple a saw a single holy sword stuck in a pedestal.

Spirit god sword Evans Mana. It’s emitting a godly glow with tremendous amounts of magic power while four mazoku are standing by it.

One is a man with 2 horns, one is a man with huge bat wings, one is a man with red demon eyes and there in the centre was a man wearing a mask.

The masked man reaches out his hand to Evans Mana.

“Idiot. That holy sword can only be used by the hero Kanon. You’ll regret touching it!”

One of the soldiers surrounding the mazoku speaks out but the masked man grasps Evans Mana and easily pulls it out.

“…Wh…..at……”

All the soldiers were startled and seemed unable to speak.

“….The holy sword…..was…pulled out….?”

“Impossible…..that’s impossible! Has the holy sword that no ones been able to pull out for 2000 years accepted a mazoku as its owner!!? This shouldn’t be possible!!”

The masked man ignores the soldiers and looks at his most dangerous opponent in the room.

Our eyes meet.

“Fumu. An average mazoku would disappear simply by touching it. You must have some extraordinary power.” (Arnos)

Looking closely I can see that the mask is a little different from the one at the sword competition but I still can’t sense any magic power.

“Excuses won’t work anymore since you’ve bought some of the old seven demon emperors with you. You really should name yourself.” (Arnos)

The masked man raised the holy sword.

“I am the demon king of tyranny that destroys everything. I am Avos Dillheavia.”

Evans Mana shines even brighter.

“Your name is a lie demon king of fiction.” (Arnos)

I deploy six formations and fire off six <Geo Greys>.

“Foolish.” (Avos)

Avos Dillheavia swings Evans Mana down and a divine flash of light fills the surroundings along with an uncountable amount of sword strikes.

My six <Geo Greys> were easily torn apart and the sword strikes attack me directly.

I dampen the power of the strikes with anti-magic and parry them all.

The surrounding pillars were all cut apart without a sound and the temple begins to collapse.

Fumu. Not only have they pulled out the holy sword they can actually use it.

Did you force the holy sword that chooses its own owners to accept you by overpowering it?

Or possibly……

“Listen up humans. The winner 2000 years ago was me.” (Avos)

Evans Mana covered Avos along with the 3 demon emperors with light.

“Perish foolish humans and you stupid mazoku that fail to recognise me. I will remake this world. The correct world for the mazoku. A world swallowed up in deep darkness and chaos.” (Avos)

The light flashed and burst open. When it cleared Avos Dillheavia was nowhere to be seen.

  1. Thank you so much for your work; I hope that you will always be able to do it amazingly. Keep up the good work. I like them all.

  2. Thank you very much for your hard work. I hope that you will always do it amazingly. Can’t wait for your next wonderful translation.

    • Most likely. Being able to use the sword, the amout of “subordinate” origins matches the amount of spare origins he can make and they would be absolutely loyal to…

      • Agree. Avos is probably Kanon, or whatever is left of his (presumably shattered) origin.

        It makes a certain amount of sense, and supposedly literally no one else should be able to use that holy sword.

    • i think its not kanon, it may be shin or someone else since we are not sure if they died yet or not, the 7 demon emperors are alive too… there is a possibility

    • I had the same thought, everything matches. I think the fact that Arnos can’t sense his magic power, as well as the fact that the hero Kanon had 1 main origin and 6 spare origins, which he utilized to control the old 7 demons (one of them which was the last one Arnos fought didn’t had an origin but rather a curse(?) or weapon or something like that, can’t remember so only 6 origins were used probably). And last but not least we recently discovered that Kanon was betrayed and killed by Humans, but he can reincarnate as long as one origin remains, which means that he probably felt a lot of anger and hatred towards the humans after being betrayed like that, so he went to the Mazoku side, and something must have happen to him because he doesn’t seem like the Kanon we know, he’s probably gone mad, he even got the position Demon King of Tyranny and changed the name and history, and I have no idea why. But I could be wrong, the author could pull something else, and I hope he does, since I like unexpected turn of events xD

    • But hey I just read some information from wiki which are far ahead so they contain spoilers (which I’m not gonna share here of course).
      It excites me now and I can’t wait to read the story thorough! So thanks for your hard work translator-san 😊

    • The author is certainly foreshadowing that it’s Kanon. Though something has clearly gone wrong if it’s him. As the Kanon Anos knew didn’t hate him this much.

  3. I thought it was strange that the subordinates of Avos only merged with 6/7 demon lords, and Mylheis said he thought it was because Avos didn’t have enough people he trusted…is it possible that Kanon merged his other 6 origins with the demon lords in order to control them? I mean I’m guessing Kanon is Avos given he can weild Evans Mana…

    • That’s a very good guessing. I’m asking myself the same thing. But now what are those “heroes” I mean, they are not reincarnations of Kanon? What are they? Just ppl with a lot of powa? A lot of questions here, and few answers :c

  4. Oh, also, thanks for the chapter!

    Staying indoors because of covid19 is making me stir crazy so thanks for giving me something to look forward to every week!

    But if burnouts a problem please take a break! Seriously, we can wait

  5. thank you for the chapter! you’ve been so quick with these latest chapters & it makes me so happy but remember to rest as well! i appreciate you!

  6. Two things: first, the part with Eleonor and Zeshia actually got me crying. For a light novel to get this level of emotional reaction from me… I must acknowlege it’s one of the best I’ve ever read, and Tempus, your translations are great because they can capture the emotional content.

    Second: In this chapter Arnos hasn’t said this or that would be “easy” or “simple” a single time. Things are escalating, and quickly.

    Thanks a million for the chapter, it really made my day!!!

    • Try 20.

      No spoiler but talking a bit about the author ability for the future :
      ————————————————————————————————————————————————
      ————————————————————————————————————————————————
      If you’ve read ahead a bit I can say this
      The thing I like with this novel is the ability the author has in his world building, character building and his ability to not forget a thing, If you go reread the novel from the start with your current knowledge you’ll see many thing have been foreshadowed, some of them quite early.
      You can literally find yourself quite late in the novel thinking wait I should’ve seen that coming. it’s really a pleasant feeling.

  7. If Avos is Kanon, it doesn’t change the fact that it was 2000 years ago… how did he live that long?

    Thx for the chap!

  8. Could it be that Kanon saw that Arnos plan was flawed, so he came up with one of his own?

    Turning himself into the common enemy for both the Mazoku and the Humans so they can unite against Avos?

    Nah. The more I think about it, the less probable it is.

  9. Man, I should have waited this chapter to declare the Milf … but I Think you can forgive me with the context of the previous chapter..
    I sincerely love this novel and it’s Author he’s really good, The Tl as well :p

  10. I had a theory about who was Avos Dilheivia, and also about who Ray is (we know he’s a reincarnated person), and after this chapter I checked the wikia and both my theory were true 😭 I don’t know if I should be proud or sad to know so much ’bout the plot now lol.

    Anyway, thanks again for the translation, Vive Tempus !

  11. Correction (Just the names of Seven Elder Demon Emperors thou):
    Medin Gaasa —> Medoin Garsa
    Zoro Angaat —> Zoro Angart
    Eldora Zaia (No change needed)
    (Someone told me that the name translation are up to the translator himself and I know that, I just couldnt help it)

    • If you know then why do it? Couldnt help it? Someone put a gun to your head and made you type those sentances? If you can read Japanese which you are saying you can then good for you. Jog on and dont worry about us. We’ll survive.

      Thanks for the chap tempus

  12. The mask is a bit different and Anos still cannot sense any magic power. Is that the same person at the sword tourmament???
