104. The voice of a child echoes across the battlefield

“Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!” (Ray)

With an uncountable number of sword flashes Ray rips apart the <Jirasudo> coated rocks overhead with Evans Mana banishing the darkness and denying the despair of those below.

Dazzling light illuminates my body.

“……Splendid…..” (Arnos)

A body wrapped in light and the scar from Evans Mana continues to destroy my origin.

“Demon king-sama!!”

The fastest of the Deiruheido advance units approach my position.

About 500 mazoku soldiers arrive at my location.

They may have come to save the demon king of tyranny but they are too late.

The light that surrounded my body burst open and as it subsides my body disappears.

“You damn humans…….”

The captain of the advance unit pulls out his demon sword and raises it to the sky.

“I am Elio Roodwell the demon emperor charged with looking after Midheys for the demon king of tyranny! My Midheys unit will now escort the demon kings journey to hell! Come stupid humans and give my lord comfort!” (Elio)

The Midheys unit and the subjugation force glare at each and just as they were about to start fighting Ray held up Evans Mana.

“My name is the hero Kanon. The demon king of tyranny Avos Dillheavia has been killed by me. This sword Evans Mana was created to destroy the very origin of the demon king himself. He will never revive!” (Ray)

Proclaiming it loudly Ray appears in front of the advance team.

“Proud Deiruheido soldiers, this is a wonderful attempt to follow your lord but have you forgotten the last words of the demon king of tyranny himself?” (Ray)

[All Deiruheido forces are to withdraw. I will not allow any retaliation against the Azeshion forces until I reincarnate again. Live. Until the day your demon king returns again.] The last words of the demon king of tyranny transmitted via <Liikus>.

“The words of your lord or the words of the hero wielding the sacred sword. Who do you believe?” (Ray)

The demon kings origin was destroyed by the holy sword and could never revive but his own words said he would reincarnate and come again.

Elio grits his teeth. Revenge is clearly in his eyes and on his mind but for him, a member of the royals, the words of the demon king of tyranny must take priority over anything else.

Asked who to believe the answer was obvious.

“…..Withdraw all troops and wait for the demon kings return…..” (Elio)

The Midheys unit starts to fall back.

“Chase them! Don’t let them go!!”

Ray stands in front of the subjugation forces blocking their way.

“Peaceful Gairadeite soldiers, Avos Dillheavia is gone. The mazoku follow the words of the demon king of tyranny. They will not attack until he is reincarnated but he is never coming back. Evans Mana has already destroyed his origin.” (Ray)

There is no one in Gairadeite who doubts the power of the legendary holy sword given to them by the gods.

“They will wait for all eternity for the revival of the demon king of tyranny and still it will never happen. That is their punishment, my brethren. A commandment that will last forever.” (Ray)

Ray raises his voice

“We have won. The fight is over. Right now, peace has come to Azeshion!” (Ray)

Ray raises Evans Mana high up in the sky creating a magic circle and summoning a sheath. As he sheaths Evans Mana the soldiers let out a great shout of victory.

The mazoku will not invade Azeshion until the demon king revives and this demon king will not revive for all eternity. As such, Azeshion will not invade Deiruheido either.

“…..This is the end……Arnos.” Ray murmurs.

As he speaks a shell of light was launched from the subjugation force towards the retreating mazoku forces.

Ray snaps his hand out and flicks it away with his right hand.

The next moment thousands of shells were launched towards the mazoku forces.

“….Fuuu…..!” (Ray)

Ray quickly whips Evans Mana out of its sheath and cuts down all the <Teo Trias> but his single breath delay due to him having to unsheathe his blade causes him to miss one.

“Ku—” (Ray)

The shell of light impacts the ground where a number of retreating Midheys units were causing an explosion followed by a dust storm.


The mazoku soldiers raise their voices.

“….We were quietly withdrawing yet you cowards dare to shoot us in the back….!”

The mazoku forces shout their anger

“Don’t be fooled! That’s not the hero Kanon! He’s a mazoku!! Kill the mazoku! Kill them all!!”

It was Diego, the commander of the subjugation army screaming to his troops.

“But commander the enemy has lost their fighting spirit and the demon king of tyranny has been destroyed. Our wish has been fulfilled! Even if by some small chance Kanon is a mazoku he’s not hostile. Our reason to fight ha—”

“Shut up! Kill every last mazoku! Can’t you hear my order!?” (Diego)

“…..This is a pointless battle that will do nothing but waste the lives of our soldi—”

The arm of the adjutant who was talking was suddenly cut off.


“I’ll kill you if you defy me anymore! Zeshia squad move out and use <Gavel>. Take out that fake Kanon along with all the mazoku!!” (Diego)

The 10,000 fully armoured Zeshias’ move forward and draw a magic formation over their hearts at the same time.

“….All troops…stop…..! The demon king who became our shield would laugh at us for backing down after his people were killed. We will remind you humans of the pride the mazoku race!” (Elio)

At Elio’s command, the Midheys troops stop and turn to face the subjugation forces.

At that time a voice rang out


Once the dust cleared the floating figure of Eleonor appeared.

She had deployed <De Igeria> and was protecting the mazoku troops.

It seems she had stopped the <Teo Trias> as non of the mazoku were hurt.

“It’s fine. Nobody has died.” (Eleonor)

Elio stared at her with surprise and wariness.

Eleonor is not a mazoku. He couldn’t help but wonder why she was defending them.

“What are you doing you failure! Have you forgotten your hatred of the mazoku? Are you intending to betray the humans!?” (Diego)

Diego speaks to Eleonor through <Liikus> his voice full of anger.

“There’s no reason to fight anymore! The demon king of tyranny is dead and the Deiruheido army is about to withdraw! Any more than this and it’s no longer a fight to protect ourselves. Instead, it will be nothing but a slaughter that kills enemies and allies alike. Not even the demon king of tyranny you hate so much would do this!” (Eleonor)

“Silence!! Did you say that I am less than those dirty mazoku!? Impossible. This is revenge! This is the hammer of justice falling on those mazoku that took everything from us!” (Diego)

“You’ve been robbed of nothing! What justice is in that hatred!? It’s not even yours to begin with! It’s foolish to fight! You’re being controlled by the heart of another! None of us wanted to fight originally!!” (Eleonor)

“I told you to shut up. Don’t talk to me like that Origin Womb <Eleonor>.” (Diego)

Magic letters appear on Eleonors body before overflowing with holy water and turning into a sphere of water covering her.

The magic <Eleonor> has been activated limiting her actions.

“Just watch quietly.” (Diego)

Diego raised Enhalle overhead releasing its holy light.

“Everyone charge at once firing <Teo Trias> and once you’re in range of the mazoku self-destruct!” (Diego)

10,000 Zeshia’s step forward.

“Zeshia please stop! This is pointless. There’s no one to kill! You don’t want to kill anyone do you!!” (Eleonor)

“They won’t hear what you are saying. You are both nothing more than weapons for killing the mazoku. Now go!” (Diego)

All 10,000 Zeshia draw out their holy sword Enhalle and head for the Deiruheido army.

Ray slashes out with Evans Mana flicking away the <Teo Trias’> and cutting the activated magic <Gavel> formations on the Zeshias’ but even with him being Kanon who’s wielding Evans Mana there is simply too many of them.

He hasn’t killed a single Zehia and its obvious that way of fighting will soon wear him out.

Several Zeshias slipped through his defences and approached him at point-blank range. The origin explosion at this close range will heavily damage even Ray’s origin.


Eleonor screams out but the Zeshias’ raise their arms to thrust Enhalle into their chests.

And suddenly……

They stop moving.

It was as if time had stopped. All 10,000 Zeshia’s are standing still not moving an inch.

In the several seconds of silence that followed or perhaps it was even less than that she opened her mouth.

“….Ple….ase……he……lp……..” (Zeshia)

A child’s voice echoes across the battlefield.

  1. To be absolutely fair it’s not really like Diego had a choice, he is a creation like eleonor and zeshia. Just he came out as intended, full of hate. As he says multiple times Eleonor did not come out as intended. And we’ll zeshia was even worse off, stripped of the choice from the very beginning. Forced to explode herself over and over… That can’t be fun. Well just a few more chapters, wonder how they purge the hate and I wonder if the story ends here with the war over or if they then go back to fix the royalty vs unification problem, and if they slowly fix the false name thing or if he just rolls with not being king anymore. I would like to see him get his cake and eat it too as it were. Not a true OP story unless he gets it all. right?

  2. Thanks so much for the chapter!!

    Can’t wait to see what happens next. Are the 10,000 Zeshia going to rebel against Diego next chapter? What happened to Arnos?? It really looks like his origin’s killed, but there’s still so many arcs after this current arc. This story is still going strong!

  3. Lol I seriously doubt Arnos is dead! He’s way to OP to die for good just because his origin is destroyed! As a matter of fact I’m willing to bet the exact scenario we’re he shows up at the last minute and saves the day and everyone else and says his famous lines like
    “ You think that just because you killed My Origin, that you killed me?” Spouting some OP AF BS reason like that or something!

    • I know the sword injured him but in all honesty it never crossed my mind he’d died. I thought he’d just gone invisible or something when the light exploded and he’s standing there waiting to see if Ray’s plan will work or not. If the author was going for the impact of his death it felt a little lacking to me with just a one-liner having him disappear. Guess I’ll see next chap.

      • Thanks for all your efforts put into this novel Tempus-Sensei! And yeah I honestly doubt Arnos is dead but this is a PERFECT excuse for Arnos-Chan to do what he does best and that is……. FLEXING!!!😆

    • Yup I also think so. Remember the hero sword had the ability to sever fate, on the other hand Arnos sword can destroy the fate himself as you probably know from reading the first Vol. so, yeah he can probably destroy the fate that he died when his origin was destroyed.

      • Arnos’s sword is if i remember correctly a principle destroying sword.
        If he was so easy to kill then spirit god hero and the supreme god would not require to work together to kill him.
        He is surely waiting for the chance to deliver the dialogue “Did you think i would die if you killed my origin”.
        Oh and i think time has come for diego to die at last and so is the time to kill the will of jerga from all humans
        Btw where are all the reincarnated demons when their god is being killed, aren’t they gonna help arnos

        • Im pretty sure Kanon stated during his monologue that he asked for the reincarnated demons such as Shin Regalia, Anos’s 2iC, as well as the more powerful demon clans that didn’t join Anos during the Age of Myths to not interfere with his plans, and they accepted. Much like he got permission from the 6 Emperors to overwrite their origins and Melhys to wipe his memory and get yeeted.

          • No, i mean the demon king is being killed here you know
            Isn’t it about time to save him
            Especially shin who is his right hand man.
            Now is not the time to stay hidden and accept kanon’s plan
            His plan didn’t work, now helping arnos takes presidence

  4. C’mon Ray, kill the brainless prick, you let thousands of kids die?
    That’s beyond human, man, that dead General is one sick fuck, poor Zeshia, her asking for help really messed me up…
    Also, Ray is like a master of origins right?, is possible that he can fuse all of them into one? If he can’t, i bet Arnos can.

  5. Yeah, it’s obvious Arnos isn’t dead, but I wonder… ¿Did he somehow used an illusion skill to simulate his death?
    I hope Diego suffers as much as every other villain, no… make that 10 times the torture.

    Thanks for the chapter~

  6. I’m kinda surprised this is how the author wants to go about things. Like, after all that build up with Arnos saying he’d bring all 10,000 Zeshia’s happiness and “save” Kanon from his fate as the hero, Arnos really just kinda goes with the flow when it really mattered. Like I get it’s building up for a “at the last moment, he comes to save the day” moment, but before that he just kinda goes along with Ray/Kanon’s plan despite it being pretty naive and short sighted. I mean for real, his plan wouldn’t have brought peace, it would have just led to the two sides hating one another but otherwise not fighting each other. And the demon’s would still have their f’ed up class system.

    • Creating “peace” through a scapegoat and falsified history doesn’t address the underlying problem of bigotry. Neither does building the barrier between realms. My prediction is that Arnos already realized this, but went along with the plan to either advance his own plan and/or teach Kanon a lesson.

  7. Hey, could you share where you found the HTML to input a nightmode into the page? I have a translation blog from english to spanish and I could use it as well 🙂
