Chapter 00: Prologue

 


Translator: Manga0205


It was, an infinite darkness.
No matter how far one went, there was no end
No matter how long one waited, there was no dawn.
There was one spot, where there was light.
A throne that floated within the darkness──Only there.
A dark clump that had the shape of a person sat on that throne.
It’s shining red eyes, they asserted that it wasn’t just some darkness or a type of shadow.
Then again, it wasn’t like that was its true form.
But, it wasn’t like it had a true form.
It became like this after abdicating its right and responsibility to establish its form. That was all.
That thing that had abdicated even its name……It was something called the “Demon God”.
Demon God.
The summit of all demons.
The Creator of all demons.
The enemy of all good.
The enemy of all evil.
The tolerator of all good.
The tolerator of all evil.
The one who affirms all contradictions.
The one who transcends all logic.
In this place where even chaos is seen as well-reasoned, the Demon God looked down upon the thing that was before its eyes.
It was formerly a Human that was called Nakajima Ryou.
「Now then, I guess I’ll first take an appearance that would be easy for you to talk to.」
When the Demon God said that, it searched through Ryou’s soul.
It arranged itself into an appearance that Ryou would fear the least, and would most easily hold a favorable impression of.
「……I see. So this kind of thing is to your liking.」
After who knows how much time, the figure of a young lady appeared on the throne of darkness.
Her black hair grew down to her shoulders, and her forelocks were cut to the same length.
She had black eyes that had a bit of an intense impression. With her light red lips bent into the shape of a smile, what covered the Demon God’s body was, a black dress.
「Now then, I will explain the situation to you.」
The Demon God, she leaned her back against the throne that had gotten bigger compared to her body that had transformed into a little girl, and started to explain to Ryou with a tone of voice that matched her body that had transformed into a little girl.
「You, have already died.」
Nakajima Ryou, twenty-nine years old.
The cause of death was, a heart attack.
Despite being informed that, the Ryou before the Demon God was silent.
……No, he was unable to give forth words.
It was because right now, the soul that was once Ryou had become something similar to a lightly dirtied porcelain-made marionette.
「Un, it seems that you truly lived a worthless life.」
He did as much as possible to not trouble other people.
Not desiring higher places, he knew his place.
Although he did have aspirations, the hand he extended was small.
Nakajima Ryou, he lived a life that a great majority of people would call normal……or maybe, a life that was a bit lower than normal.
Such a life, the Demon God judged it to be worthless.
However, that was also something that couldn’t be helped.
Having lived while just going with the flow, there were an extremely small amount of things that Ryou had decided upon by his own will.
Ryou’s soul, which feared the idea of getting hurt and still went with the flow, as if to embody that, did not have a Human appearance but took the appearance of a porcelain-made marionette.
「However, you are quite fortunate.」
Expressing a hypocritic-like smile that seemed like it would be expressed by a human of unscrupulous business practices, the Demon God stood up from the throne.
「As a matter of fact, there is a world where a vacancy for Demon King has just opened up, you see. I was thinking of sending you there.」
A Demon King seat became vacant.
That sounded like it had the meaning of them having perished.
However, approaching the still silent Ryou, the Demon God talked while making her smile stronger.
「There’s no need for you to worry. I will recreate you into a form suitable for starting off as a Demon King.」
Even the contents of the job aren’t all that hard, is what the Demon God laughed.
「It’s a simple job of only perishing to the Hero. If you expect more than that, well……I guess it all depends on you.」
When she said that, the Demon God smashed Ryou into tiny pieces with a single swing of her arm.
「The name of your new self is……Let’s see, uーn. I’ll think about it until I’m done creating you.」
It was there that the thing of consciousness that was once Nakajima Ryou completely came to an end.

  1. So he was a lolicon?

  2. Will this be similar to Maou or Hajimekata or will this take a new spin on the Demon King stuff? Also, R-15 or R-18?

    OOT – My capcha was tBABe…the babe?

    • I’m curious too. Don’t want to read clon of Maou or Hajimekata.

    • I don’t think it will be similar to Maou no Hajimekata. Though I’m pretty much as in the dark as you are in terms of what the story will be like. I don’t read ahead of what I’m translating, and I haven’t translated far yet.
      It’s R-15. And it seems like it’s more of a country conquering story or kingdom building story.

  3. will this be following ln or wn? if ln, ll reserve my judgement till the epilogue then

  4. I’ll se where this is going at least seems interesting for now

  5. Thank you for translating this novel

  8. Curious start~

  9. Intenresting lets, see where is headed, by the way you still working ni Sendai no Yuushaa???

  10. Seems interesting…. For now.

  11. For now i give this series a “go”
    For the information i can get form the synopsis is:
    -he have a cheat so he must be pretty powerful
    -some how this series has got rated 2/5 by some one

    Im pretty stupid so i can’t get much information out of the prologue and the synopsis

  12. quite a different plot line than many other stories. Interesting

  13. I just hope he’ll have an evil personality

  14. My hope is that this guy finds something worth reaching out to. I enjoy watching lazy/unmotivated characters for through personal changes. Give me hope ya know

  15. I actually enjoy kingdom building stories so long as the author keeps interesting/entertaining. Also I hope this and Man-Eating Dungeon don’t get in the way of you translating Isekai Maou. Have you read ahead on Man-Eating?

    • Ikr…isekai maou is really good!i love how he tried to act like a maou… hope manga0205 dont neglecting it too much..anyway for this series i hope the mc gonna be some sort of villain guy. Im bored of some kindhearted mc and also no balls mc.

  16. the prologue kinda promising, cant wait for more~

  17. Thank you for choosing the LN to TL. Looking forward to the next chapters.

  18. Whats the posting schedule??

  19. “What is my purpose?”
    “You die to the hero.”
    “…Oh my God.”

  20. Thanks for doing this! ?

  21. A random passerby

    I just started reading this and i say the prologue caught my attention so i’ll keep going on for now.Thanks for the chapter.
    Also plz don’t neglect isekai maou shoukan shoujo dorei majutsu. i really love that work of yours too

  22. Thanks for the chapter.

  23. why the need to destroy the soul? why not just send the soul to the new body after she created it? a soul that has been destroyed it will gone forever. is the Author don’t know about it ? he is just a normal human soul, except if he is a soul of High Rank God, it will never be revived again. the action destroyed the soul maybe looks cool, but it’s looks stupid instead.

  24. Thanks for the chapter.

  25. Only twenty nine and died of a heart attack? What an unlucky guy. He must have had a genetic condition.

  26. hmm hmm it seems quite food hope the novel gets updated quite frequently and get halted or dopped

  27. Did the Demon-God just casually decide he didn’t warrant giving a name even though he was just reborn… That’s… harsh

  28. I expected more. The prologue sounds like a standard isekai cliche. I doubt that this novel can be interesting when the author can’t even figure out how to avoid the overused tropes.
