Chapter 48

 


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.
「Haa……」
A listless face befitting of that little girl appearance.
A sigh befitting of that little girl appearance.
From atop the oversized chair, the Demon God effortlessly tumbled down.
Staying collapsed on the floor just like that, she rolled forward. She rolled back.

[Illustration]

When she bumped into the chair and stopped, the Demon God breathed a sigh once more.
「You are surprisingly doing your best. I can’t tell if your true nature is that you’re diligent or if you’re prone to worrying……」
Prone to worrying.
What the Demon God was referring to was Vermudol.
「Gramfia was an idiot that didn’t think about consequences, but you yourself are too prone to worrying.」
This was something that Vermudol did not know, but the Human side’s Hero was already born.
However, for the time being, he has not awakened as the Hero. It was that sort of situation.
Most likely, at the time the people would try to perform the ceremony for the Hero Summoning, the Goddess Philia intended on informing them of the Hero’s existence.
Gods occasionally had the tendency to prefer having things done with that sort of ceremony.
For right now, that hadn’t happened due to Vermudol’s frantic maneuvering to avoid war──that is probably how things were.
With this sort of meaning, Vermudol’s scheming could be said to be a success.
「But, you know, Vermudol. You’re surprisingly stupid too, aren’t you?」
When the Demon God caressed the black floor with her hand, that part of the darkness became transparent as if it were peeling off.
What was displayed beyond that, was a black haired man──It was a scene of Vermudol reading a book.
After seeing that figure and distorting her face looking delighted, the Demon God muttered.
「Even though there isn’t any remains of the you from when you were Human no matter where you search. You’re stiiill intending on being a former Human.」
That’s right, the Vermudol from when he was Human had died in his original world.
The Demon God did not remember what his original name was, but the Demon God had smashed that soul to very small pieces and reconstructed it.
Since it was used as the raw material, there were probably some memories left within him.
However, Vermudol wasn’t a so-called 「Reincarnator」.
It was because reincarnation was where a soul is transferred into a different vessel.
Due to the norm of the soul not matching with the world in doing so, those reincarnated into another world would awaken to strange powers.
However, Vermudol was different.
The Demon God had went out of her way to construct it so that it would match with the norm of Remphilia.
Without any complications, Vermudol was a Mazoku of Remphilia, and the Demon King.
Therefore, even now, Vermudol was acting with the long-term interests of Mazoku as the top priority.
Making maximum use of his own authority of creating Mazoku, he tried to eliminate any factors that were outside of his own control.
That was fine.
That was fine but……However, he had a strange leniency towards mankind, especially Humans.
It wasn’t hard to imagine that it was most likely the part of him that was a former Human that was influencing him.
The cool-headed sense of ethics as a Demon King and the sense of ethics as a human of his former world simultaneously existed within him.
And that surely held true due to his expectations towards Humans.
──I can understand since I was once Human, so we should be able to compromise with each other.
That sort of sentiment was still within Vermudol.
However, Vermudol did not understand it.
「You’ve already overlooked several signs.」
The trigger that Vermudol was dealing with was simply something small.
The damage done by monsters certainly instigates anxiety, and connects to the Demon King revival theory.
Dealing with that was correct.
Collecting information while doing that and performing past countermeasures is also correct.
He had even obtained new information called Summon Magic.
But, however.
Vermudol had forgotten.
Certainly, the ones that destroyed Gramfia were the Hero and Humans, it was mankind.
That being said, who were the ones that helped them out.
Who were the ones that gave them the power to destroy the Demon King, the system known as Heroes.
He had excluded the ones known as Gods from his thinking, and thought only of the workings of those that lived on the earth.
And then, above all.
Vermudol was making light of the dirtiness of Humans.
「Actually, I do think that you are hanging in there, Vermudol.」
While rolling about on the floor that had once again been concealed in darkness, the Demon God smiled.
For a Demon King to personally associate with Humans, surely no one would have ever thought of that.
Moreover, to be moving in order to avoid war with mankind, surely no one would ever believe that.
However, the world won’t be at peace with only that.
Certainly, just like in the past, there are many that fear the outbreak of a war between Mazoku and mankind.
However, the happy ending of a Hero defeating the Demon King only happens in heroic tales, and reality isn’t like that.
Why was mankind’s territory──the Shutaia continent divided into several countries.
That reason is something that Vermudol didn’t think deeply about.
It is because he unconsciously had hopes for Humans that he overlooked the signs.
「……I won’t call it futile effort. Even if, it continues on into despair.」
Raising her body up, the Demon God sat down in her chair.
「In the near future, you will be complete as the Demon King. Just who will become the trigger for that……I suppose I’m looking forward to seeing that just a little bit.」
That, was a spectacle seen from the Demon God.
An overlooking muttering that wasn’t transmitted to any of the living creatures in the land of Remphilia, not even to Vermudol.
That was simply all it was.

  1. Thank you for the chapter.

  2. Thanks for the chapter

    The premi ition about our mc is really good in this
    Cant wait how he become the true Demon King

  3. Thanks for the treat.

  4. Looks like i’s gonna be one of those, “You idiots are waging war and killing each other for no good reason? Then I’m gonna conqeur you and set you all straight,” situations, doesn’t it?

    • Nope, not in the slightest.
      It is more likely that Vermudol will find some humans he really gets along with – even becoming friends – because they are open-minded and might also believe in the possibility of peaceful coexistence with Mazoku.

      But then other humans – most likely whole countries or a religious organisation – who are manipulated (erm.. I mean “shown the correct way”) by the oracles of some god / goddess or so – will create an intrigue and kill those friendly humans.

      As such Vermudol will then become the demon king in full as he sees that the humans cannot be befriended as long as they are lead around by their current rulership and religions while being manipulated by those self-righteous gods.

      Just in case:
      Remember the Alta?
      A specious that is not created by a demon king and has appeared only recently after the last demon king Gramfia’s death?
      So who could create a demonic being aside from a demon king and why?
      My conclusion is that that so called Goddes of Light is actually the one who created those Alta in order to fan the flames of war.
      After all if the “hero” sent by her “saves” the world from the demons then the humans’ believe in her will grow stronger and with that her powers and influence over that world probably, too.

      • I personally agree that MC is being stupid after all.
        He is just wasting his time on that place where he should manage his kingdom properly and prepared for the war but on his diligent journey to know the truth just crapping there.
        The Demon God loli is right. He is making light of the dirtiness that the humans have done in the past to now.
        This Maou is truly stupid and idiot even though his original human self is completely destroyed and born anew to a new soul a new body.
        What’s he’s preferably doing is so cliche Japanese pacifist thing.
        Gosh his insight is so narrow that he dig deeper but nothing there. No other mind that the Altas are created from the Goddess and she’s the one who made them make humans waged a war to the Mazokus and she’s also the one pointed out where they lived.
        But MC is just digging his own head on the ground even more like an idiot.

  5. A random passerby

    The mutters of the demon god gives me chills. Is she the strongest god in this novel?

  6. 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.

    damn this one look like something said in “dentetsu yuusha dentetsu”

    anyway what had happened to “Himekishi ga classmate” is in a hiatus or the author stopped ?

  7. Thank you very much! <3

  8. I personally agree that MC is being stupid after all.

  9. There is really no peace for Mazokus and Mankind.
    After all the one guiding humanity is a b*tch who doesn’t accept the Mazokus existence. A rather extreme perfectionist that only the things with nothing from a Demon God creation.
    There’s only annihilation but MC is too darn narrow minded. A classified stupedo.

  10. Thanks for the chapter, the Demon God is surprisingly cute!!!!!!!!!

  11. This is retarded. I won’t even bother discussing how the author vilifies humanity to make the mazoku look better a gain sympathy from the readers. Just the fact that the protagonist is not only stupidly naive, as already admitted by the author, he is also plainly retarded. Running around and containing monster activity in the scope of one of the human kingdoms, all to prevent a hero summoning? Now for reals, can you get any more inefficient then that? This protagonist srsly deserves to simply perish to the hero.

  12. I agree with the Demon God, the MC was being a f*ing idiot. Having too much hope on mankind’s goodwill and wasting time on the human continent and trying to find the truth of the Avas or the other demon lord. I doubt he’s gonna get the truth from books, but it seems like he’s gonna find a clue or something.

    He should know he’s only delaying the inevitable. If the author is writing that the MC is being stupid and naive, something’s gonna happen. And I hope it pushed the MC into despair and pain.
