Chapter 316: The True Enemy

Chapter 316: The True Enemy

“… As expected of the Hero chosen by the Spirit of the Shield. The other sprits are praising him.” (Atlas)
“Yes, yes, that’s all fine, and dandy. Now in exchange, reimburse me with information.” (Naofumi)

I’ll bombard this spirit with all the questions that have been circling my mind.
It’s as if this world itself is intentionally hiding information from me.

“First is… right. Why was I summoned?” (Naofumi)
“That’s probably because Naofumi-sama had the qualifications to be a Hero. 『No matter the trouble, even if you’re vomiting up blood, you’ll still proceed forward. Choosing you was no mistake on my part.』 says the Spirit of the Shield in Hind-sight.” (Atlas)

The four spirits are trying to appeal to me.
And among them, the Spirit of the Shield seems to be inflating itself, and acting cocky.

“Vomiting blood… Whose fault do you think that is!?” (Naofumi)

Dammit…
Even so, the qualifications for a Hero…
Putting it that way doesn’t make me feel bad, but still, I definitely think there’s some ulterior motives here. With this mindset, am I really qualified to be a Hero?

“The Sword, Spear, and Bow spirits are complaining, 『Why the hell is it that you’re always the one to pick the best Hero candidate, you glorious bastard』.” (Atlas)
“By that phrasing, what are the others?” (Naofumi)

What do you mean best?
It’s as if it was some sort of examination.

“Fumufumu… The other three have their ups and downs.” (Atlas)

Ren, Motoyasu, and Itsuki are… still taking the test.
I can’t bring this up to the humans.
And wait, the biggest problem is me being selected as the best. Are these spirits right in the head?
No, perhaps their expectations aren’t that high to begin with.
And that’s none of their concern, anyways.

“Even though he often summons the one with the most potential, they usually die quickly. So there’s no real point in the title.” (Atlas)

Oh, right. There was the possibility of me getting involved in a political struggle in Silt Welt.
I don’t really have any expectations for them, and since there are some Heroes that drop dead right off the bat, I guess there’s no real meaning in candidate ranking.
In that aspect, Ren did live up to this point, so perhaps they’re not too bad.

“The other three have ample qualifications to be heroes, but they each have their own set of problems.” (Atlas)
“Ah, I see… and?” (Naofumi)
“As an obligatory reward, they’ll at least be able to escape death this time around.” (Atlas)

Well, those guys did die before they came here, so I guess that condition is essential.
Even if they struggle to save this world, it’s no joke if they were to die the second they got back.

“By that logic, I think I also have my share of problems.” (Naofumi)

On my response, the Spirit of the Shield bobs up and down again.
What is it? For some reason, I think he’s making a fool out of me.

“『There’s no way the Spirit of the Shield, whose duty is to defend others, would allow any harm to come to you. Interference was out of the question.』 He says.” (Atlas)

Interference?
He’s speaking as if he knows the source of this.
I need to ask that too.

“It seems you do not understand, but Naofumi-sama was specially selected to be the Hero of the Shield. You can be proud of this.” (Atlas)
“No, I get that. I have something else I need to know. Tell me.” (Naofumi)
“Anyways, the Legendary weapons don’t seem to know much about things that don’t pertain to their duty, but will you still ask? He says.” (Atlas)
“Yes, that’s fine. What do you mean by interference?” (Naofumi)
“Interference from the enemy the Legendary Weapons are supposed to oppose.” (Atlas)
“And who’s that?” (Naofumi)
“Unknown. At the very least, it’s someone who’s trying to destroy the world from the outside, apparently.” (Atlas)

One who’s trying to bring an end to the world.
There’s definitely some plotting and conspiracies at foot here.
But just who could it be?
The first one that came to mind was the woman born of the wave, Glass.

“Was it… Glass, the Human-Shaped enemy from the wave?” (Naofumi)

The Spirit of the Shield starts spinning vertically.

“It seems that that is not the case. She came to fight and fulfill a duty similar to theirs: to protect the world. She’s one who brought power to this world.” (Atlas)

Atlas shouldn’t know about Glass.
But perhaps the Spirit of the shield taught her.
Even so, to protect the world…
That makes it harder to fight her.

“Next. What… is the wave, exactly?” (Naofumi)
“The wave is __________…” (Atlas)
(TL: ___, we meet again, my little friend)

What!? … The Spirit of the Shield’s words, translated through Atlas, put me at a loss for words.

“I-is that true? It’s not a misunderstanding, or something like that?” (Naofumi)
“There’s been no mistake.” (Atlas)

How could this be.
So that’s why… The Four Legendary Weapons… that’s why people came to call and revere them as such.
Perhaps this is the theory the Queen was going to present.

There, I remembered the conversation between Glass and Raphtalia.
Glass… despite being an enemy, she was surprisingly honest.
So this is why.

(TL: This is chapter 52)

“I apologize, but you can’t be any more incorrect about her being my companion.” (Naoflashbackumi)
“Doesn’t matter, what you are doing is unjust.” (Glass)
“Speaking of unjust, this bitch has done far crueler acts. I have quite a grudge.” (Naofumi)
“Master is like a villain~” (Firo)
“Shut up.” (Naofumi)
“I do not have an argument to offer to an enemy…” (Raphtalia)

Why was Raphtalia able to understand Glass’s words?

I was able to because my Shield acted as a translator.
But Raphtalia’s different.

We’ve already proven that languages differ across worlds.
Raphtalia can’t even understand the language of Silt Welt.
But she could understand that woman just fine.
That means that what the Spirit of the Shield is saying isn’t wrong.

… Why is such a thing happening?
This is definitely related to the one causing interference.

“The enemies you’ve fought so far have been but the vanguard. The Heroes of the past used the technology of those long gone, and to make sure these powers would fade away one day, someone schemed. Time was meaningless to them. They kept on sending enemies, no matter how many decades, or centuries…” (Atlas)

As I thought.
In this world, geniuses are the apostles of social growth and decay, but in truth, someone was actually reincarnating people from another world, and controlling them. To take away the means to fight against the wave.

I did find it strange.
The way to fight Houou and the Spirit Turtle. How to break the Level Cap. The destruction of the Hengen Musou School.
Also, various pieces of information were conveniently eaten away by the ages.
Thinking back, the uselessness of the information Ren, Motoyasu, and Itsuki brought to this world all lead back to that.
That means, our true 『Enemy』 is…

“Next question. My Shield is gone. What should I do?” (Naofumi)
“There is no problem. The only thing he managed to take was the outer layer.” (Atlas)
“I see…” (Naofumi)

The Spirit of the Shield sways back and forth in the air.

“His last attack was able to incapacitate you for a while, but if you were to wish for it… the Spirit of the shield would be able to answer to your resolve. An attack like that would be no problem. No, a small fry like him wouldn’t be able to lay a hand on you.” (Atlas)
“Even if you tell me that…” (Naofumi)

In front of the Spirit of the Shield, another Spirit asserted its presence.

“Naofumi-sama, in regards to that fake, do you want to deal with him personally?” (Atlas)
“Well, if it’s within my ability.” (Naofumi)
“This spirit says that it wishes to lend you its power temporarily. In that case, the Spirit of the Shield’s functions will be put on hold until you call for it again.” (Atlas)
“Meaning… I can fight with a weapon apart from the Shield?” (Naofumi)
“Yes, but you can call back the Shield when you wish. Until then, as long as Naofumi-sama has the permission of the Wielder, you should be able to use any of the Seven Star Weapons.” (Atlas)
“It’s just that in order to use their full power, you’ll have to retrieve the stolen portions from that thief.”

The eight other balls of light begin shining brightly, and one of them flies at me.
After being enveloped by its power, I was able to understand what sort of weapon it was.
And that Hero of the Whip… no.
That foreign invader. I know how I can defeat him.

I see. So this is how I can beat him head-on.
Yep, I can win with this.
No, it was because the loss of Atlas had blinded me that I was unable to do anything before.
But now…

“It’s asking you to 『Get its Wielder back on track』.” (Atlas)
“… I know. But I’ll only be able to do it my way. Don’t expect anything great.” (Naofumi)
“They are no longer the Four Divine, and the Seven Stars. Please release their five brethren from the clutches of that small fry.” (Atlas)
“I understand. And I know how. Last is… what is the Four Holy Weapons Manual I read before I was transported to this world?” (Naofumi)
“A vague record of a predicted future, and the gateway to another world, apparently. Though it seems its predictions were quite off the mark.” (Atlas)

Atlas starts rising into the air with the Spirits. She smiles.

“Remember that I am always with you, Naofumi-sama.” (Atlas)
“Atlas… I couldn’t protect you.” (Naofumi)
“It’s alright. I’m always with Naofumi-sama. And Onii-sama, and Raphtalia-san, and everyone in the village. Please hold them all dear.” (Atlas)
“Sure.” (Naofumi)

I hold up my hand… and our fingers wrap around each other.
Upon feeling her skin, tears start forming in my eyes. I’m not even sad, so why?

“Will we meet again?” (Naofumi)
“We’ve never parted.” (Atlas)
“… That’s right.” (Naofumi)

Atlas’s body changes into light, and disperses.
I watch over the scene, and head off to reality.

    Thanks to Yabaibunni my mind became clear, so i can write another theory.
    Ok, let´s beggin…this is going to be long.

    Chapter 1 First Generation

    The first generation were summoned for the legendary weapons and the best hero of them was Naofumi the Hero of the Shield…Naofumi won peace after talking with the king of the wave. Naofumi married the daughter of the king of the wave, Raphtalia…everything was awesome until Naofumi understood something: “The two worlds are dying”
    The explanation of the Spirit of the Shield was something like this “Since they are dying we are helping them, repeating their time over and over again, the Heroes are helping with this”
    To put it simple: The Spirits were like Doctors or Medical Machines and the Heroes were like Fresh Blood (Blood Transfution) for patients (worlds).
    Then Naofumi understood 2 things: The worlds wanted more time and they were stealing time (sand) to each other.
    And if one of us die the worlds are going to reset their funtions, “like a game”.
    With this in mind Naofumi understood…”the worlds only can have 70-80 years at best.
    The spirits wanted to reward the heroes with a wish:
    The first option: a return to your original world. In this case, you can get three wishes on that side. They can be for anything.
    Option two: stay in this world, and be revered as a Hero for the rest of your life.
    The third option is to be sent back to your original world, but to be given the right to return back to this one
    Most heroes chose option 2; one person chose option 1 and Naofumi choose option 3. Raphtalia went with him.
    Actually Naofumi was a genius, he never was serious so he never knew, but after the travel he became diferent…
    After studinf magic, the book and other things Naofumi made a game…but something went wrong and “Motoyasu” (who is not a hero right now) die. Witch is at fault, but the wishes protect her. Witch steal/buy the game…
    Naofumi use legal terms and create another/similar game with other name and create virtual Reality.
    Witch obviously want to go back, but her wishes cant do it for her…Witch tried to kill all the people who were using the game. Naofumi saved them…some people obteined psichic powers (Naofumi did not want that, but it was ok).
    Ren who was there like a gamer, tried to act like a hero and was killed for witch…Ren, like Motoyasu and the criminal/Witch disappered…30 years later Itsuki disappeared…Naofumi though it was time to save the worlds. Raphtalia want to go too.
    The spirit of the Shield warned them “you are not going to remember a thing at all…Raphtalia will reborn as princess Raphtalia…but you are not going to reborn as Naofumi…you are going to reborn as another kind”
    Naofumi understood and the story of another Shield Hero began,

    Chapter 2 The Genius demi-human without a name hero of the shield.

    So here in Faubley we are very proud of the best genius of all times..he does not have parents, he is a demi-human-tiger and since he is so silent he has no name… but how about if we call him “scum”, i am sure he is not going to resent us or a king in particular and call him “trash”…just kidding. He has no name…wow, he create a submarine, he is a genius indeed; he does not like to be called genius…wow, a light, and now he is the hero of the shield, good for you…now save us, you need to obey because you are a slave like all of your kind…now say hello to the hero of the gauntlet (someone)
    …..(no-name)
    Smack
    Where is my hello? (Gauntlet)
    ……I am going to conquer all humans and free my kind with my genius, bow before me low life or meet your doom (No-name)
    …Yeah go and think about what you have done, now come with me princess who we are going to call Witch…What you need to say something? (Gauntlet)
    I can´t recongnise Naofumi, since he is litle and has no name and because he is a demi-human (Witch)
    I do not understand, but is good to know..
    No-name is doing all the work, but since i am stupid i think i am doind all the work myself…for some reason he leave my side, i hope he is not causing trouble…(Gautlet)
    Now i am tall and strong, i free all my kind and now i am something like a king, but i want to be presindent (no-name)
    Yeah, i hope he is not causing trouble (Gauntlet)
    —————–

    Wahaha, sorry little girl (No-name)
    Sorry?, sorry for what, sir (Lucia)
    I am sorry, because you are now an important prisioner (No-name)
    Chapter 3 Atlas
    But, my king, we do not understand…she was an important hostage a weakness for Luge, but now you are telling us you are going to marry her a human, is that some kind of tactic? (Genmu)
    What you are thinking is annoying me (No-name)
    S…Sorry, my king (Gunmu)
    Fohl! (No-name)
    Yes, Aniki(Fohl)
    Besides me you are who interacted more with Lucia all this months, what do you think of her? (No-name)
    S…She is adorable…aniki (Fohl)
    What? (Gunmu)
    Wahaha(No-name)
    But, my king (Gunmu)
    Do not misunderstand, Gunmu, i just want a name (No-name)
    My lord…a name? (Gunmu)
    That´s right, Gunmu, It´s frustrating not having one, Lucia is going to give me a name (No-name)
    —————————————–
    What? (Lucia)
    I am starting to have strange dreams (No-name)
    Dreams? (Lucia)
    In those dreams i am somehow diferent, i have friends and a life different at this one, those dreams i believe are…(No-name)
    …It does not matter (Lucia)
    What?(No-name)
    Naofumi is Naofumi…that will never change (Obviously i cant deduce his name, but she already give him one, deal with it)
    I see…Wahaha, of course (Naofumi)
    Right (Lucia)
    Lucia tomorrow we are going to war…(Naofumi)
    I know (Lucia)
    That Houho and your brother too…all this time i was trying to talk, to offer peace, but he and those who killed you parents are using that to their advantage(Naofumi)
    Sorry(Lucia)
    No, no, i did not mean…It´s just that your brother made me remember of someone else (Naofumi)
    I am the hero of the Gauntlet, how are you king Naofumi, you are similar to someone i know, you know?(Gauntlet)
    Oh!(Lucia)
    Yeah(Naofumi)
    By the way this is Old man, he is really young, but we like to call him Old man, because we do not remember his name. He is a hero and a Black Smith…after this battle he is going to have trauma, so even if right now he is very evergetic, later he will lose his will as a hero…(Gauntlet)
    …Yeah(Lucia)
    Lucia, thanks to this guy we can talk more freely, but i do not want to, let´s go to other place and talk this seriously, Fohl come with us too (Naofumi)
    Ok(Fohl)
    Lucia, my people is feeling unsafe…i think they will betray me (Naofumi)
    Aniki, that´s…(Fohl)
    Fohl, it does not matter, but now i understand all and if i die just like this everything will just reset again…but if i do things right maybe just the wave will reset.( Naofumi)
    I understand, i am not going to scape the loop (Lucia)
    Lucia, you…(Naofumi)
    Of course i understand. I was always listening so…(Lucia)
    What is happening aniki?(Fohl)
    The spirit of the shield is telling me i am going to die (Naofumi)
    What?!(Fohl)
    But if a hero die the reset beggins and “normally” the heroes became others (i do not mean the personality, i am saying others completely)
    The end of the world is a loop (Lucia)
    Exactly (Naofumi)
    What?(Fohl)
    But someone is interfering and he will stop you from returning (Lucia)
    That is obvious, what is your…(Naofumi)
    That is why…Naofumi make your daughter(Lucia)
    What?!(Fohl)
    Lucia(Naofumi)
    I wanted to give you a daughter, but my body has been always weak, so…(Lucia)

    But thanks to this just like that, in this life i can became your daughter. (Lucia)
    How dare you, you, human!!!(Naofumi)
    Lucia hug him.
    And that is why i do not want to be human anymore, please do not reject me.(Lucia)
    This is not fair!(Naofumi)
    I know, i am sorry (Lucia)
    No…do not be sorry (Naofumi)
    …I do not ger it, but i want to be your son too (Fohl)
    Fohl, i am sorry, i can´t leave Lucia alone, please…(Naofumi)
    Ok, father, but if you do not come for her he will be mine (Fohl)
    Please do your best (Naofumi)
    I will (Fohl)
    I do not want to forget (Lucia)
    Your body….(Naofumi)
    I do not care (Lucia)
    You nevere were so selfish (Naofumi)
    One more thing (Lucia)
    Another? (Naofumi)
    Lucia was serious, Naofumi became silent and wait for her.
    I give you a name, now i want you to give a name to your daughter. (Lucia)
    …Atlas. (Naofumi)
    I like…(Lucia)
    Is the name of a God who carry the weight of the world on his shoulders…that is what your are going to be Atlas (Naofumi)
    Yes, i am going to reborn as your daughter and after that we are going to see each other again (Atlas)
    …It´s a promise. (Naofumi)
    Aniki, how are you going to …
    With genetic…you are not going to remember Fohl, sorry.
    My work is going to be so perfect, enough to confuse God! (Naofumi)
    00:00
    “I just have to do it!” (Naofumi)
    That day a human died protecting humans and demi-humans equally.
    The view of the Shield as a legendary weapon drop: “Even after his death nothing happened, so he is not god after all” (future pope)
    The kingdom of Naofumi disapeared and his son and daughter became slaves.
    ————–Chapter158
    Brother: “What are you planning!”
    Naofumi: “Whatever, just be quiet for now.”
    I enter the cell while approaching the younger sister who lying down in the back.
    Brother: “Stop! Don’t you lay a hand on Atlas!”
    Atlas… That’s a new name… In my world, it had many meanings such as a game or map.
    Was it ever a girl’s name?
    The elder brother kept getting in the way, so I took out and showed him some medicine.
    Naofumi: “I’m only going to give her medicine. Have you seen this kind of medicine before?”
    Brother: “It’s Yggdrasil medicine!”
    Naofumi: “Correct”
    Atlas: “Is someone here?”
    The girl slowly turned her head while coughing.
    They said that she couldn’t see. She can only determine where we are by our voices.
    Atlas: “I think… although his voice seems powerful and forceful… it is actually very gentle. Elder brother… how do you see it?”
    Brother: “Ah… come on… how can that be…”
    Atlas: “Even though such great power is felt…”
    Slowly, the girl turns herself towards me.
    The elder brother reluctantly guides her hand to approach me.
    I approached the girl called Atlas.
    How terrible. Her entire body is covered in bandages so that I couldn’t even see her real face.
    Her skin was also covered with festering sores, so much so that it’s a wonder she’s even alive…
    Although her ears and tail were probably of the same race as her elder brother, it was difficult to say for sure.
    Atlas: “You came for business…”
    Naofumi: “You somewhat understand.”
    Atlas: “Yes… you want me to act as a hostage for my elder brother…”
    To understand this much… and yet… her tone was of one who has given up.
    Atlas: “Owner of the gentle voice… would you please tell me your name?”
    Naofumi: “Naofumi.”
    Atlas: “Naofumi.”
    Her pronunciation was excellent, as she was the first one to say my name correctly.
    Atlas: “Naofumi… if you can… please cherish my elder brother.”
    Brother: “Atlas! What are you trying to say!?”
    Probably, she knew about her situation but wanted to ask for just this one small request.
    Naofumi: “Unfortunately, I have no intention of listening to that request…”
    Atlas: “Is that so….”
    Naofumi: “…since I’m going to be taking care of you as well.
    ———————–

    Ok, after this Naofumi is going to use the same principle an save everyone….(Chrono Triger, i guess)using loop, but without witch (but with witch), he is going to create a false dimension…erase time…be the original Naofumi of the first generation…change heroes (for me they can change them for trees, i am sure they will be better heroes)…original plan of Naofumi #1…and free transportation for everyone or reincarnation one or the other.

    I guess that is all for now, i say it was long…sorry.

          Chapter 2: Naofumi became a demi-human and forgot everything (this is a maybe) he was a genius in Faubley and a slave, then a hero of the shield. Then he meet Gauntlet and Witch…Witch did not recognise him…because he became a demi-human.
          Chapter 3: Naofumi marry Lucia (who is the sister of Trash), she change her name to Alucia…because Naofumi understood Witch became God, he change his plans…Alucia and Fohl wanted to help…with genetic Naofumi made Alucia a demi-human (she is going to be a loli forever because of this) Alucia change her name again this time her name is now Atlas. This Genius Naofumi die…the normal Naofumi almost die the same way, but Atlas prevent that route, Trash knew about this too (in a way Atlas and Trash saw the future though it was actually the past…)
          Naofumi save everyone with the same theory of Chrono Triger and other games and animes. Everyone is happy.
          My analisis are always shorter…i prefer the other one, though.

        Journals are written first person, therefor the rule still applies. Whatever Naofumi knows, the reader must know as well.
        Furthermore, even if it’s a journal, that’s all the more reason to WRITE the information.

        I could probably let it slide if its explained within the same chapter, but cmon… really?

          guys, it was already said but let’s go again, the theory we (a few readers and Yorai) came up with is that the true enemy, or one of his servents are DELETING the important information fron everywhere, that means that Naofumis diary, which is likely what we are “reading”, was also afected by that so that could imply that the enemy “won” at the end or at least survived and is stil around to try again… you got it now?

        • shieldbro says:

          That’s plain stupid (not the theory). If you plan on having a journal themed novel, then the one who reads it should be someone from that fantasy world. You can’t place the journal into the readers hands. If it’s a journal, then Naofumi reads it. If it’s not, then it’s plan first person POV while omitting information from the readers, information that the character learned.
          And if it’s a journal, then most likely Naofumi reads it, since it hasn’t been implied anyone else. Also, lot of people seem to be mistaken, I don’t complain about the story, I complain about the part where the author omits information that the MC first person POV learns.

          Because things like this pretty much annoys me :S
          If the author doesn’t want us knowing what the wave is until the very end, you can tease about it like in the demon lord arc all you want, but you can no longer hide the information from us if the MC learned it.
          Why I think that this can’t be a journal read by the reader is because this is the first time I’m hearing of this.(I’ll look more into it) And logically looking on it, it’s kind of silly. It’s fantasy world… without explaining further.
          And if this was a journal, and I was the bad guy, and wanted to omit information, heck I would’ve burn the entire damn thing instead of scratching the most important parts. I mean lol. That’s why I said the idea seemed silly.

    I have been thinking. What if, like naofumi’s new seven sins shield, tact is also under a new sins curse that allows him to semi-steal other hero weapons. That would kind of make sense as the spirits are calling him “small fry”. Maybe he and his followers have false levels that are brought about by that curse.

    Just an idea.

      probaly not, since these curse are also powers fron the weapons and it would be unlikely that they would give/have those powers… most likely it’s something realated to his status as a “genius”/reincanated, or something he studied for hinself or found somewhere

    You know, although mostly irrelevant to this chapter, I just thought of something. Whore/Bitch being given the new name Witch was because in the original version they combined the two names to double the insult but the English version of this ends up being Witch right? If this is right and it doesn’t matter translation-wise, couldn’t we have instead of now calling her Witch, reverse the order of the words and call her Whoritch? In this way it might more clearly be understood that Naofumi intended to combine the two insults into one super insult. Of course, it may not matter that much now since she is going to die soon (she better) and it would likely be a pain to go back through all the translated chapters to change it.

    Just my theory, but is it possible this is just someone going through Naofumi’s thoughts? Such as reading his memory etc. etc. So Naofumi may be in a coma or something and the wave’s are getting stronger, and people figured Naofumi knew something to prevent the waves so they’re going through his memories to figure out how to stop it? I mean apparently there is a bigger force destroying everything important. So if Naofumi learned this information why couldn’t they delete it from his memory or limit it so only he can remember it. (Even with all the spirits maybe they can only protect 1 persons memory from this overlord type person):\ (yes I know this is pretty far fetched, but meh.
