Chapter 42 – LIAR

<– Previous Chapter | Glossary | Next Chapter –>


 

Seeing Hifumi being carried into the mansion, the lone civil official slave Caim raised his eyebrows for a mere instant.

“Caim-san! Hifumi-sama is injured!” (Origa)

In contrast with the shaken up Origa, Caim, maintaining his usual prudence without any change, shook his head.

“Please calm down, Origa-sama … it isn’t very desirable for many people to know of this situation. Please enter the office together with Lord-sama. I shall be in charge of bringing the medical tools.” (Caim)

No sooner than saying so, Caim straightened up his back and disappeared in an inner room.

“Ah, Hifumi-sama … because of me …” (Origa)

“Origa, get a grip!” (Kasha)

She encouraged Origa, who had been completely haggard for these few minutes. The two soldiers somehow managed to lay down Hifumi on the sofa in that office.
Kasha told the soldiers, who carried Hifumi, to entrust this place to her and head back to the front lines.
As Hifumi had been gently put to lay upside-down so as to not touch the arrow embedded in his shoulder, Origa was sitting on the floor clinging to Hifumi.

“I am very sorry, just because I ended up getting carried away …” (Origa)

As Origa, sobbing sorrowfully, hit the bottom of grief and anxiety, she experienced a welling up of happiness due to Hifumi protecting her. Becoming disgusted at herself because of that, she cried once again.

“Origa …” (Kasha)

In the time waiting for Caim, Kasha worried about Origa while also keeping a watchful eye on Hifumi’s condition.
While walking restlessly, she touched the magic tool on top of the pouch at her waist.

“… Origa, this is …” (Hifumi)

Distorted by pain, Hifumi opened his eyes. From within the darkness storage he took out those magic potion bottles that had saved Alyssa on the verge of death.
As expected, he has those, huh? Kasha thought. Although she unconsciously showed a bitter face, neither Hifumi nor Origa were in any state to notice that.
The existence of the medicine caused Origa to be very delighted once it reached her mind. She showed a smile as if she had forgotten something like the pain caused by her foot.

“Right away, I will open the bottle immediately!” (Origa)

Getting irritated at the small wooden cork while telling herself to calm down, she uncorked the bottle at last. Timidly pouring just a little on the wound on Hifumi’s shoulder, Origa clutched the arrow tightly.

“I will draw out the arrow.” (Origa)

So as to not unnecessarily widen the wound, Origa drew it out cautiously. Apparently it had penetrated quite deeply. She pulled out the arrow with a sound of *zuru zuru*. It was soaked and dripping in blood from the arrowhead 15 cm downwards along the shaft.
Tossing the arrow away, she hurriedly sprinkled the magic potion over the wound.

“Why? … For what reason?” (Origa)

Despite having already used up most of the bottle’s contents, there wasn’t any visible sign of the wound on Hifumi’s shoulder being healed.

“Kasha! Even though I am using the magic potion, the wound isn’t getting cured!” (Origa)

“No way …” (Kasha)

By now Hifumi’s consciousness had become faint as the bleeding increased at the part the arrow was extracted.
Origa, who couldn’t touch the wound carelessly either, sank down to the floor with despair written in her face.
The bottle, dropping from her hand, tumbled across the floor.
Without even knocking, the civil official slave Doelgar entered the room and approached Hifumi with heavy steps holding bandages.
Squatting down before Hifumi, he looked at the sideways laying arrow.

“It had penetrated that deep inside? … This might be dangerous …” (Doelgar)

Although he had probably muttered this without the intention of anyone hearing it, it ended up entering Origa’s ears.

“Dangerous you say!? The magic healing potion doesn’t work, we have to apply other medicines …” (Origa)

“P-Please settle down. It is rare for the magic healing potion to not work, but I have heard of such occurrences. It was caused by some special constitution. There were even cases where its effectiveness had become weak and even had the opposite effect.” (Doelgar)

As Origa was emitting a threatening force as if snarling at him, Doelgar explained what he remembered.

“Special … constitution …” (Kasha)

Now that he mentions it, Hifumi was summoned, “a person coming from another world,” Kasha recalled.
There hasn’t been a time when she had seen Hifumi getting injured before. Let alone a magic potion, she hasn’t seen him even using a regular ointment.
(If that’s the case …) (Kasha)
As she told him to stop the bleeding at the very least, Kasha propped up Origa who had turned into a lifeless doll. She took Origa to her own office next door since they would just become a hindrance in the treatment.

◆◇◆◇◆

When Kasha’s group left, Hifumi muttered after calming his breath,

“Doelgar, you are unexpectedly skilful at acting.” (Hifumi)

“Not as great as Lord-sama. When I heard you came back with an arrow sticking inside you, I was seriously worried.” (Doelgar)

Abruptly rising, Hifumi took out a heater pack magic tool from within his breast pocket and discarded it on the floor.
The sweat wasn’t due to it being cold sweat but merely because of the heat. Due to the magic tool producing more heat than he had imagined, it apparently didn’t end with getting sweaty but even scalded him.
Having wiped off the sweat, Hifumi took out a magic potion bottle from his storage and roughly poured it on his shoulder.
The wound closed itself quickly.

“Quite the handy thing.” (Hifumi)

Shifting his shoulder, he confirms that there is no sense of discomfort left.

“Good grief, this isn’t the work of a civil official! At any rate, what was that failing magic healing potion that Origa-san opened?” (Doelgar)

“It was simple water I filled in a bottle that had been used up before.” (Hifumi)

Doelgar, towards the pitiful Origa who had been completely deceived, with a shrug of his shoulders.
He had acted out the drama as it had been dictated in the scripted play he had previously received from Caim.
Even the muttering that enraged Origa was naturally something he had been told to do on purpose.

“However, why was it necessary to do something troublesome?” (Doelgar)

“It’s an experiment to see whether people really rush without thinking just because things are in the middle of advancing smoothly as often happens on the spur of the moment.” (Hifumi)

“Fuu~n … I don’t quite understand what people in a high position think about.” (Doelgar)

Without any particular interest, Doelgar gave a suiting answer while collecting the bottle and arrow that had fallen to the ground.

◆◇◆◇◆

As soon as they entered Origa’s office, Kasha smashed the magic tool from atop the pouch.
At the same moment the magic tool that Pajou possesses should break as well. Before long the Third Knight Unit would raid this mansion.

“Kasha. I want to be next to Hifumi-sama after all …” (Origa)

“No, you will become a nuisance during the medical treatment. Leaving that aside, is your foot alright?” (Kasha)

Even while worrying about her, Kasha wanted to stop Origa leaving until things had somehow concluded. Thus she tightly grabbed her shoulder and forced her to sit on a chair.
After being separated for five days, feeling the body beneath the robe, Kasha noticed that Origa had become slightly burly. Even though the time they had been apart hadn’t been that long, she remembered her loneliness.

“Since the reinforcements will also arrive soon, let’s return to the capital once that person comes.” (Kasha)

“… That person?” (Origa)

Origa’s gaze, showing her sensing something, changed from the girlish face shaking with anxiety just before to something sharp she directed at an enemy.

“Do you know someone from the reinforcements? Why does Kasha know something about them I am not aware of?” (Origa)

Kasha wasn’t able to retort anything towards that piercing look.
Finally, after hesitating for a short while, Kasha decided to tell Origa everything and to take her along even if she had to do it by force. She looked directly into Origa’s eyes.

“Listen to me, Origa. Soon the Third Knight Unit will enter this mansion. And then, they …” (Kasha)

“… They are aiming at Hifumi-sama.” (Origa)

Once again Kasha was lost staying only silent.

“I had been suspicious of you from the beginning. Although you should have stayed away after becoming scared of Hifumi-sama, you returned readily. Moreover your gaze kept following Hifumi-sama from time to time. That is a habit of Kasha while waiting and observing a monster looking for an opportunity. Since it didn’t suit your normal self, I though that you were aiming for something … but once we entered this room, you did something. It was something giving off the feel as if magic had been invoked.” (Origa)

“I was asked to inform Pajou if Hifumi was in danger. Well, it’s not like I forgot about the favor I received by him picking me up, but that only happened because he purchased me by paying money! Origa, you have gradually become weird after meeting Hifumi! Think properly about it, Hifumi often does good things, but in reality, isn’t he a criminal who murdered royalty?!” (Kasha)

Losing her presence of mind, Kasha’s voice became louder and louder.
While watching the appearance of Kasha, who was rattling on, Origa stood up despite her light-headedness and took out a shuriken from within her bosom.

“S-Stop … Let us two hunt monsters happily together once again. There is no place for us in a world where killing people is the norm …” (Kasha)

“Draw your sword, Kasha. You have clearly become our enemy now.” (Origa)

◆◇◆◇◆

It was the civil official slave Caim who went to greet Pajou’s group storming into the mansion.
Towards the group of more than 20 knights suddenly entering, although it got close to becoming a turmoil, Caim, donning his usual cool-headed nature and suppressed them by shouting 「Don’t increase my work!」 with a threatening resounding voice.

“You have been awaited.” (Caim)

Caim said to Pajou, who led the Knight Unit, without even lowering his head.

“Awaited you say …” (Pajou)

“Of course, it means that the major of this city’s territory, Hifumi-sama, welcomes you. I have heard from Hifumi-sama that you took upon yourself to come from the far away royal capital leading an army. Now, please head towards the office on the second floor. Please excuse my impoliteness, but it is a matter of involving the military affairs. Because we, the civil officials and staff, were ordered to not get close, please go on ahead to the upper floor.” (Caim)

Despite speaking politely, there wasn’t even any expression of respect in his manner of speech. Without saying anything, Pajou’s group left Caim’s side.
Neither Caim nor anyone else made a comment towards the matter of her entire Knight Unit having drawn their swords.

“Was that alright?” (Brokra)

Even as Brokra, being a civil official slave engaged in the accounting management alongside Caim, asked this uneasily, Caim only turned his look towards him blinking his eyes.

“There is nothing good or bad about it. This place is the castle of that gentleman. That is already sufficient reason.” (Caim)

He thought about telling Brokra to return to his work if he understood, but seeing his discomposed state he couldn’t find the right words for that.
Looking up at the Knight Unit climbing the stairs in the direction of the second floor, he sorrowfully wondered whether he had to summon some soldiers to clean up again.

◆◇◆◇◆

At the time Pajou stepped into the office, Hifumi had collapsed in front of the sofa.
With the blood spread on the floor, he didn’t even show a twitch of movement.

“This is …” (Pajou)

Curious whether he had already died, Pajou approached timidly. In that moment Hifumi jumped up as if he was a monkey and treading on a knight in order to get over the group he landed in front of the door blocking their exit.

“Yo, you’re late.” (Hifumi)

“Wh-Why … ?” (Pajou)

“N~ The actors are bad and the stage is crude as well. Leaving that aside, hurry up and prepare your swords.” (Hifumi)

Like that Hifumi put his right foot in front into a stance with his legs in a L-shape remaining unarmed and pushed out both his swinging hands in front of him. (T/N: If you watch anime, you should know this pose. I think it is often used in Noh theatre plays by the actor symbolizing the demon. Jiraiya from Naruto likes to do that pose as well. Basically both hands in front, 1 foot in front, crouching and swaying)

“Do you plan to fight these numbers empty-handed? Rather than that, wouldn’t it be more comfortable to get yourself arrested obediently?” (Pajou)

Pretending to be calm Pajou spoke those words, but the moment she finished, Hifumi grabbed the neck of a male knight in a flash, drew him into his chest, and broke his neck.

“It’s not like you came here to gently persuade me, don’t you agree? If you have the spare time to yap, then get over here quickly.” (Hifumi)

Throwing away the corpse of the knight, Hifumi said in ill-humor.

“Although I don’t know who came up with this farce, after taking over this troublesome post of feudal lord and enduring one hardship after another, this is the treatment I receive in the end. I even feel more amused than angry.” (Hifumi)

“You!!”

The knight, swinging his sword alongside his yell, had his sword averted by Hifumi striking the lower part of his wrist and was brought down while having his neck detained.
Without time to get up, his throat was crushed by Hifumi’s fist.
The knight who came stabbing his sword, had the back of his hand seized and his wrist broken by twisting it. Hifumi’s knee broke his elbow.
His head was cut open halfway by his own sword being stolen from him just like that.

“The taste of killing them is bad. They should hone their skills properly.” (Hifumi)

Tossing away the sword soaked in blood, it lopped off the arm coming for a horizontal slash and, using his centrifugal force, he drove the knight into the wall.
The knight, having his face banged against the wall, sunk to the ground while leaving a streaking smear of blood on the wall.
Now he was assaulted with swords by three knights at the same time, but avoiding the sword’s path easily while walking forward, he kicked the back of the knee of one knight and twisted the kneeling knight’s neck.
Throwing the corpse at a knight, he grabbed the arm of another knight rushing towards him and knocking him down by pushing him with his hands he crushed the face, that was looking up, under his foot.
Even the person, who was struggling being pinned down by the corpse, was killed in a similar manner of crushing the throat by stepping on it.
While watching her colleagues being killed one by one just like that, Pajou took out a tiny iron pebble from within her pouch at her waist though she felt impatient.
It was the stone thrown to kill the guard at the night she met Hifumi for the first time.
The second Hifumi was caught up in breaking the neck of the last knight, she threw the stone with all her might.

“Oh” (Hifumi)

Thrusting out his opponent holding him by his neck, the stone embedded itself into his face.
Although the knight screamed due to the abrupt pain, his heart soon stopped beating as Hifumi immediately tread on his back with force.

“You have a considerably good arm. But, the throwing motion has to be done even more casual. Otherwise it is too easily noticed.” (Hifumi)

“Thanks for the lecturing, even though it’s coming from a hoodlum. Anyway, I didn’t expect you to deal with the Knight Unit as easily as this …” (Pajou)

Hifumi took out his katana and drew it towards Pajou who had once again set up her sword.

“I have received various favors from you. Therefore I will kill you instantly.” (Hifumi)

“I wonder whether it will be this simple.” (Pajou)

“If it doesn’t end quickly, that will be something enjoyable.” (Hifumi)

The bright smile of Hifumi and his eyes filled with madness caused Pajou to grind her molars.
As Hifumi broke into her range lightly thrusting at her, Pajou brushed off the katana from the side and cut at him in a flowing motion.
Dodging the sword attack by retreating a half-step, Hifumi once again stepped forward while aiming at the crown of her head.
Pajou jumped to the rear in a hurry. The downward swing of Hifumi’s katana changed into a thrust and the katana’s point approached her rapidly.

“Kuu” (Pajou)

When Pajou raised her face after avoiding the thrust by rolling over, there wasn’t anyone in front of her eyes.

“Eh?” (Pajou)

She looked at the katana protruding from her breast.

“Even at the time of evasion you shouldn’t take off your eyes off your opponent.” (Hifumi)

Ah, this is the place where I die, as Pajou thought that, her feelings mysteriously calmed down.

“Ime … raria … sa, ma …” (Pajou)

Being separated from the katana by slipping down the blade, only a single line of tears could be seen on the face of the fallen Pajou.
Getting rid off the blood with a paper, Hifumi returned the katana into its scabbard while cracking his neck.

“She had splendid backbone to die staying still like that. Well, shall I go and see the situation over there.” (Hifumi)

Stepping over the dead bodies of the Knight Unit, Hifumi headed towards the room where Origa’s group was.

 

T/N: I added a new illustration to the ToC (of volume 3) which is more fitting for the current arc, I think. Feel free to check it out here

    1. Hifumi be like

      Hifumi:Argh! I took an arrow on the knee
      Soldiers: MEDIC!!!
      Kasha: Yosh! Aki-lucky! (signals Pajou)

      Inside the mansion when Pajou and her unit entered the room

      Pajou:The time for talk is over! (Riven’s tone)

      Hifumi: Look Behind You *uses deception* (Shaco’s tone)

      Hifumi: The jokes on you! (Shaco’s tone)

      Hifumi is LEGENDARY!! HEXAKILL!!! ACE! *Pajou and her knight comrades annihilated*

  1. loyal Origa against bitch Kasha… nice chapter, I’m truly expecting the fall of the kingdom and the death of all traitors.

    Thanks for the hard work 🙂

    1. If you think about that world’s common sense, then Kasha is pretty much right. Hifumi was just an eccentric “noble” that needed some hands. He trained them for his own needs, not to save them.

      From our POV, he is a person with some loose screws. He acts like a good lord and gives them(everyone) a good environment to live and stuff, so he may obtain their loyalty and good will. Why? So they will become more useful during fights and wars

      1. he did kill the king but he has yet to brake a law because in this world and kingdom you are allowed to kill the people that kidnaped you. he was even attacked by the knights there so that thro brutal is with in his rights to kill them all. all of the times he cut down other knights he did so under orders so long he has not just gone on a mindless rampage he has upheld the law as messed up as it sounds if he proves this plot was form the royal faction they will lose the support of the people because in the eyes of the people he is a noble hero a grate leader with all the quality’s of a grate king and based on their actions he can by law go and kill them and claim the kingdom as his own but it basically is already his at this point.

        1. Dont forget that province is the conquest he performed, not king or princess elswhere. It does not belong to kingdom long, so if he start a rebellion from there they dont have reason to oppose by loyalty toward kingdom. They might object for many practical reasons, but not of loyalty.

      2. Kasha is too naive and her vision too narrow, so what if he did everything for his own needs? so helping someone out of their own pocket for nothing in trade is common sense? Bullshit
        He saved her, gave her good treatment, freed her, this doesn´t change no matter the reasons.
        and yet she let herself trust people she barely knew and tried to stab him in the back.
        Kasha is like a employee who was well treated and paid by her boss but still sold his company secrets for a rival, so someone tell me, is this right? what does this say about her PERSONAL morals?Or maybe her understanding of the reality?

        1. I just pointed out other POVs. Ofc at the end of the day, her actions are “wrong”. Her doing this out selfishly doesnt help either, under the disguise of doing the country a favour.

      3. though I agree on you with that, Hifumi “acting” as a good Lord is bullshit.

        Hifumi was NOT acting. He clearly and deliberately bare his character to his surroundings. Most of them know that he enjoys killing, that much is true. Hifumi isn’t some noble, nor does hehave any hidden agenda or plot. He was honest enough to show what he wants. If there was any misunderstanding left in the populace, it was their own naivete, or what we could say their world’ common sense.

        The fact that there is a much better livelihood in his territory than others was enticing enough to motivate people to work for it. It may be because they have some use but Hifumi isn’t telling the people to kill unless you are part of the army. You do your work and get paid, that’s all there is to it. Even in our society useless people are cut off from their jobs and ends in poverty.

        1. Ah by “their” common sense, I meant, ours and theirs. Even I think Hifumi is crazed. But it is true he’s not breaking any law by killing innocent bystanders.

        2. Exactly. Thats why i mentioned about a good environment, where people at least has a chance. Compared to those stereotype asshole lords and nobles, Hifumi is infact a “good” lord

        3. He was being a good lord because all players were noobs and got rekt, so he went from musou game to europa universalis for a change of pace. Put it simply we wants to revolutionize war to create war to play.

      4. I really hoping to see chaos run rampant across the continent.
        I probably took the same way as hifumi or more worse than that.
        Summoning “kidnapping” without any solution to return to hometown.
        They have to aware and prepared for the consequences.
        Thanks and good job for the translation.

    1. I think first of all, he is going to finish his war by conquering all of the enemy nation, or give them time to raise another army (for his amusement).

  2. Whats the problem with killing trashy royalty? What so noble about the blood of those leeches?
    “Its not the blood that is noble, but the soul” – princess lilliane, Princess ressurrection.

    1. Its more of a cultural thing. We don’t care about noble blood because royalty is powerless but to them there a big difference. It’d be the same for a commoner during the Dark Ages.

    1. Its more of a cultural thing. We don’t care about noble blood because royalty is powerless but to them there a big difference. It’d be the same for a commoner during the Dark Ages.

  3. Ohhhhhhh yeaaaaaaaaah! THE FELT SOOOO GOOD! After reading all that BS plotting of a middle-schooler level (Seriously, try harder next time, medieval period.) Now we just gotta take care of our sweet princess and (possibly) Kasha. Can’t forget that idiot that is literally marching straight for Hifumi to kill him or something, or trying to take his kill (Bad idea bro).

    Thanks for the chapter~ Now it’s time for Origa lovey dovey~

  4. To be honest, i feel bad for kasha. She is just wrecked with nostalgia for the past and is manipulated by pajou

    She longs for the days when it was just her and origa and would spare means to get back to those days

    She doesnt understand that everything is just past the point of no return

    1. I don’t think she was really manipulated though. She already thought that Hifumi was a dangerous person… the knight woman/princess simply made a terrible plot to kill him and she followed along with it.

    1. Like in the Mafia movies where there is a special team cleaners that they could erase all the evidence from room ,flooring CCTV even Gossips using the their own Mafia Gold currency xD

  6. Well, I guess for small fries such as Pajou this was a decent death. But overall it was anticlimactic, I know some stuff could come up out of nowhere, but this plan so far really made no sense.

  7. hahaha, he killed Pajou; That woman was beautiful, she should not have wasted her time following the skirt of some brat queen. That Sabnak from the third company was smarter then her, it’s sad because she knew Hifumi longer then him and she witness first hand what he can do. When you saw him get up, you should have ran away. The idiot had the audacity to say “what can you do to us, without a weapon”.

    1. without a weapon? he is a weapon you idiot Pajou you need to remove all his limbs then you can try to kill him not that its going to work when he can just use dark storage to get his limbs and fix them with healing potion that in of its self pails to the fact that he can cover him self in it so that no none living thing can touch him makes arrows swords and the alike useless don’t know why he did not just use it and one of the dead bodys he has in storage to fake getting hit but it makes little difference now.

  8. now to announce that 3rd knights collaborated with Vichy and betrayed kingdom thus removing royal hand of princess making questions arise! wasnt 3rd loyal to princess? did she orchestrated it all to take over throne? wasnt she who summoned Hifumi to let her get a pass on a throne in a first place? what an evil princess…

  9. I have to give props to the author for this plot line.

    I’m so sick of the NSFW plot twist where they play with their food – I really hate the demeaning actions.

    Pajou got a warriors death and suffered no shame. This is what seperates Japanese WN from Chinese ones. (Just to clarify, I think Japanese WN plotlines and characters are nicer)

    1. CN MC’s way better Smooth Che from ATG, Psycho Rapist Chu Feng from MGA, and Meng Hao from ISSTH the best conman ever. Hifumi is too One-dimensional and his antics will get old soon when all he cares
      about killing and has no bigger goal. In Fact the reason Hifumi is really popular is because he is close to how ruthless and crazy CN Main Characters are. P.S Pajou did not deserve a warrior’s death with her treacherous acts and I feel How bloodthirsty Hifumi appears to be he will not kill the princess for at least a while.

      1. So why read this then? Just stick to your xianxia and don’t whine like a p*ssy here.

        P.S. Are you one of those Lord Fifth retards?

        1. It’s also very early on and we’ve had a few hints of what hifumi’s goal is which is – basically a world where he can kill as he pleases and awakening the foolish peaceloving people of that world to what war truly means so he can have more fun slaughtering.
          Deciding that hes one-dimensional after a mere 42 chapters is stupid in itself when you’re comparing it to novels that are 400+ chapters long with well fleshed out characters that have experienced numerous struggles.

      2. Are you even following the plot? Point to one instance where it was Pajou’s decision to betray. So far all her action have been dictated by Imareria (not confirmed – this decision could have been made by someone else in the kingdom). She was following orders and died. That in itself is honorable.

        Seeing as you so nicely brought up ATG, MGH and ISSTH – the protagonist from ATG slaughters entire clan for irking him, PSYCHO RAPIST(?!?) Chu Feng, a conman in ISSTH and all the protagonists objectify women (should I go on about their other chauvinistic tendencies?). Hello, pot? This is kettle. Your’e black.

        1. Just a correction. It was Pajou who suggested the plan to Imeraria. Imeraroa only followed through.

          And yes it’s not a betrayal because Pajou was loyal to the Hime not Hifumi.

    2. There’s no separation between Japanese and Chinese novels, beyond the one where Jap writers tend to prefer making submissive moralistic MCs who are always 1 inch away from being strap-on dildo fucked in the ass and enjoying it, in addition to moeblob; while Chinese writers prefer edgy and ruthless MCs who don’t give a shit about morals. This is by the majority trend.
      And both sides also have exceptions, like Summoned Slaughterer is for Japanese novels, which makes it so great.

      There are plenty of Chinese novels that have MCs just beheading and killing females without care for beauty and such idiocy. The Magus Era, Immortal Executioner, Dragon Martial Emperor, Martial God Space.
      And also Chinese novels with good romance plots that focus on one person instead of harem shit and do it properly, like Douluo Dalu, Transcending The Nine Heavens, Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Ze Tian Ji, Dragon-Marked War God, etc.
      Of course, you would know this if you actually read things.

      As far as demeaning actions, sexualization, and objectification go. I’ve heard enough of the anti-sex moralizing from conservative religious preachers and idiots like Gary Herbert who want to ban porn.
      Hearing it from anti-sex feminists in the past few years too is now a drop in the glass that’s beyond the capacity to tolerate it honestly.

      1. So what you mean to say is that it’s ok to engage in debauchery so long as its the majority trend. Just gloss over all the demeaning things and everything is sunshine and rainbows.

        I do read things. Just because I didn’t dredge them up doesn’t mean I didn’t take them into account. I just talked about the worst offenders.

        My tolerance is a bit lower than yours. If you find me overtly sensitive, then that’s your problem – not mine.

        1. Unless you can make an argument that imaginary characters engaging in debauchery is a bad thing, which doesn’t make you look like you need psych counseling, or doesn’t make you look like some of those conservative bible humpers who want writing and entertainment to be treated like baby food; easy to digest, chew, and posing no discomfort for the baby consuming it, then i find it very ok that an imaginary story has debauchery in it of whatever kind and level.

          However my problem isn’t with your sensitivity. Sensitivity is fine so long as it isn’t imposed onto others.
          My problem is that you used your sensitivity as leverage to generalize two different writing collectives based solely on religious moralizing that i hear from bible humpers or the horsehoe equivalent feminists, and your generalization was incorrect and misinforming. My problem was solved by correcting it.

  10. Kekekeke~ now that the whore is dead. Although it wasn’ torture-to-death, then again, that’s not Hifumi’s personality rather, my own.

    Now what entertainment does Imeraria will have in store for him next.

    And that bitch Kasha had the audacity to say “He saved us only by using money” MONEY? FU bitch, how else would you have been set free from the slaver you cunt!? Are u kidding me. Geez. You are not some damsel in distress who needs to be saved by a prince on top of a tower, u fool. Your own stupidity and naivete caused u both to be tricked, at least Origa has the mind set to appreciate being save unlike you.

  11. The hell is everyone going on about? Hifumi is a goddamn cold-blooded killer. He felt that his potential had stagnated in the modern world therefore he agreed to transferring over to the new world.

    He is a genuine martial artist. Not the ones you see in sport, but the ones during the past where they would simple fight and kill to temper themselves. Hifumi is smarter and stronger than a lot of people and it really amuses him that someone insignificant is trying to take his life.

    Hifumi is prepared to die, therefore he will take his challenges head on, otherwise why would he blatantly show that he is a ruthless being that spares no one unless you are useful to him. In various points of the chapters and early beginning, Hifumi has shown slight emotions but he is always calm and collected because he never stops. He kills because in essence, he is finding it amusing for him and it is tempering him. He hated the possibility of not being to do anything in the modern world, which also shows why he lived in the mountains rather than in rural areas.

    Hifumi is true to himself and he has the makings of a war god.

    1. In the illustration in the ToC she is the blond girl holding the sword on the right side. You can see Alyssa on the left next to Hifumi.

      There are currently 3 volumes released. If anyone got any new illustrations except those already posted, please provide them. Thanks 🙂

      1. I thought that girl in the left will be a new character. She’s hair looks like she has animal ears so i thought that she is a beastkin girl 🙂

  12. People are arguing about whether he is good or evil, a hero or the villain. I think everyone is free to see him how they like it, there is no point arguing over it.
    I personally like his character, but if i would have seen him in another novel as a side character or an enemy of the MC i might not have cared if he dies or not.
    I like it because its refreshing to get a somewhat “bad guy” MC where the story is written well and its interesting.

    Even though he is merciless and incites conflicts just so he can kill people he still has standards and his own rules. He is not just a mindless murderer. More or less he haven’t killed anyone who wasn’t his enemy already.
    He is also treating everyone fairly (no matter their status), as long as they don’t go against him.

    He can’t be blamed for causing the war either because Horant and Vichy might have been preparing for a war secretly and the late king was about to start another war against the beast-man.
    He also ensures that his subordinates won’t be killed needlessly and i think none of his soldiers died so far (though his reason is more likely to hog all the kills for himself).
    Although he killed a lot of people so far most of them had a quick and clean death. Hifumi likes to fight and kill but he won’t play around with them just to torture them (unless those cases he was interogating them).

    Thanks for the chapter 🙂

  13. Pajou died, too bad, she is quite a beauty with even a good art profile drawn about her, if it was me, I would at least make her regret her decision to the fullest by letting her feel pain, torture and even mindfuck her while see watches while her country falls into ruin.

    1. Yeah the only thing this novel lacks is raping hot females. Still there’s slavemancer and Maou Hajimekata for it altough.

      It does pain me that perfectly hot girls like Pajou gets killed instead of becoming meat toilets but hey, too stupid to live if they attack Hifumi. Also he’s not a sexist, he kills women equally.
