Chapter 327: Looking Aside

I thought the Sheep Rabbit had too many banners to DIO, but I just realized that my website theme supports randomized headers as well. Ah, I’m not touching Rin, and the Akiba Art Magazine girl’s reflection is a pain.

Chapter 327: Looking Aside

Raphtalia and the Kitsune woman are exchanging stares.
From what I see, the Kitsune is but a little girl.
However, her speech pattern reaks of old age.
Is she that Loli-baba thing that’s all the rage these days?
(TL: Loli = Loli, Baba = Baba, I.E. Shiroyasha)

“Raccoon Wench, do you think you stand a chance of victory with me as your opponent?”
“I don’t really know. From what I see, you’re a mix between a Fox Race, and a Zveal Race, but what sort of grudge do you hold against me?” (Raphtalia)
“Foolish Raccoon, who knows not your place, don’t get cocky because you tricked me once before!”
“… I think I’ve heard a story about that, but you’re looking too far back there,” (Raphtalia)

There is a Demi-Human legend about something like that.
I looked it up because I wanted to see what sort of Race Raphtalia’s was.

Apparently, the Raccoons used their magic to… seal a great Youkai of the Fox race through deception. There’s a legend like that.
They’re still stuck up on that?

The amount of Tails on the Kitsune woman began increasing.
Eh? So she’s a nine tailed fox. How grand.

“That humiliation… I definitely won’t forgive you!”
“That’s a false accusation, but you made an enemy of Naofumi-sama, and sided with that egotistic sunnavabitch. I won’t hold back.” (Raphtalia)

The Kitsune takes out a slender sword, and gets into position.
The air resounds with the sound of metal hitting metal. Raphtalia and the Kitsune Woman… Tulna, I think… they use illusions to make clones, and use a wide variety of magic as they exchange blows.
It would be accurate to call it a battle of deception.

The moment it looked like Raphtalia had pierced her, Tulna’s sword had gone through her heart.
Of course, in the end, it was but an illusion, and none of those events actually happened.
It will be difficult for her to force her way through this fight.

We managed to cover the level gap with extreme Support Magic, but this woman seems skillful.
With this, neither side can concentrate on anything but the enemy before them.


Now then… I wonder if that Kitsune Woman’s noticed that a single animal had snuck onto the battlefield.

Next is Fohl.

“If you surrender immediately, I don’t mind forgiving you, Aotatsu woman.” (Fohl)
“What do you think you’re saying to the strongest head of the Aotatsu Tribe? Hakuko… No, from your smell, are you a mix blood? How idiotic.”
“Like I care. I have no interest in my roots.” (Fohl)

Fohl changes to beast form, and holds his front paws out before him.
I’m worried about just how much of a gap exists between the Four and Seven, but from the look in Fohl’s eyes, it seems that he’ll be alright.

“Let me show you the true terror of the Aotatsu race.”

The woman opposing Fohl… Nellishen’s Silhouette gradually expands in size.


Eventually, Nallishen changed shape into a large oriental dragon.

“Throughout our long history, the ones who could take on this form were named chief! Can a Hakuko Mutt keep up with me?”
“Worthless. Even if I had a form like that, I wouldn’t use it against the likes of you.” (Fohl)

He hits his fists together, and provokes the dragon.

“Now, Hakuko Hero of the Gauntlet! Let’s put an end to this long cycle of fate! The Aotatsu are the strongest race in the world!”

Nellishen chants water magic, and smashes it at Fohl.
Fohl lightly dodges it, and instantly closes in on her. He lands a kick in the center of her face.

“Were you trying to do something?” (Fohl)

Thunder roars, as bolts of electricity begin raining down on Fohl.
A race that can use water and wind together… apparently.

「Erst Rush V」!

Fohl implants his fist into Nellishen’s abdomen.

“Ah, ga… gu…”

Fohl isn’t just some Hakuko kid. He’s the Hero of the Gauntlet.
I’m doubtful that the Aotatsu chief is a match for the current Fohl.

With a storming sky as the backdrop, Sadina and that Shatte person exchanged murderous looks.
From the magic that Nellishen used, the area was now covered in a layer of water.
Shatte had assumed her battle form, in which she looked like a shark Beastman.


Shatte rushed straight forward, and launched an attack. In response, Sadina…

“You see, this Oneesan is never around when the important things are happening. But I’m glad that this time is different…” (Sadina)

Sadina takes the tail thrust from Shatte head on, and bends backwards to absorb the impact.

“Because I couldn’t protect anyone. Because I found my hated enemy.” (Sadina)
“Just how long will you be able to stay on your high horse!?”

Sadina spits up some blood, and glares at Shatte.

“Even if it’s me, I’ll never forgive Atlas-chan’s enemy. So please step aside this instant. If you do… you’ll live a little longer.” (Sadina)

Sadina firmly grasped the harpoon in Shatte’s possession with one hand.

“So before you start regretting standing before me, Noid Kusha halfbreed…” (Sadina)

Even though her skin was that of a shark, I saw what looked like goosebumps appearing on Shatte. She took a large step back.

“What will you do?” (Sadina)
“D… don’t look down on me!”

Shatte snaps, and swings her harpoon high above her head. She releases a magic attack.

「Maelstrom Spear」!

The attack leaves behind swirling trails in the air as it heads towards Sadina.

“Ah, right. You seemed to be misunderstanding something.” (Sadina)

Sadina casts her favorite lightning magic, and absorbs it into her Harpoon.
Seeing sparks come from the weapon in Sadina’s hands, Shatte seems dumbfound.

“Wha… A Luka… used lightning!?”
“Oneesan never said she was a Luka, you know. I may be closely related, but… please don’t group me with those weaklings.” (Sadina)

Sadina’s lightning impaler, I think it was called, easily pierces through Shatte’s attack.

“You see, I’m a little angry right now. How long will you stand… as a target for me to take my anger out on? I’m going to fight seriously here.” (Sadina)

Sparks fly around her, and… Sadina does another level of transformation.
There are plenty of things I’d like to retort here. I was even pretty sure she hadn’t undergone a full recovery yet.

“Let’s see just how powerful the power Naofumi-sama gave me is.” (Sadina)

She looks like a sea lion. She’s changed into a brown colored monster.

Last is the mid-air battle.

That’s the front Ren’s on.
IT would be a bit dangerous for Gaelion alone, but now they don’t have a chance of failure.
That’s just how great the difference in power is… with Heroes.

“I’ll pound the terror of a Dragon Emperor into your body!”

The giant dragon Reldia spews out a fire breath much more powerful  than the one Adult Gaelion can cast.

「Mega Prominence Nova」!

Ren held his sword up high, and cast magic.

「Revelation Magic Enchant X」!

The sure-death flames start flowing into Ren’s sword.
I believe magic enchant was able to absorb magic attacks, and augment their abilities into the sword.
It appears that dragon breath is included in the attacks it works on.

「High Quick~」
「High Quick」!

Around that battle, zoomed a pair of shadows. It was Firo, and the Gryphon.
Firo seems to be having an easier time.

“A flying Filo Rial… They should have died out in the war! How did you survive!?”

The Gryphons caused the extinction of flying Filo Rials…?
That’s the first true revelation I’ve had upon coming here.
Though I think they should just start fighting already.

“Wrong~” (Firo)

As they exchange various questions, Firo and the Gryphon circle  around each other, and release various attacks.

「Dreifach Tornado」!
「Spiral Strike」! (Firo)
「Screw Strike」!

And in another area of the sky, Gaelion started inhaling air, as he prepared to release his breath.


It was white.
I think older Gaelion said something about that.
About practicing a special sort of breath attack.
What was it? Something about a difficult attack involving interference, or something.
Yep, that’s probably what it is.

“Gu… What!?”

Reldia seems short of breath as she cries out.

“Next’s my turn!” (Ren)

Ren declares as such, and points his sword.
The blades edge was basked in a red light.

「Flame Edge, Meteor Sword X」!

A dark crimson shockwave shot towards the giant Dragon Emperess.

Yeah, no one here seems to need my help.

    So Naofumi is just peacfully looking at his companions not needing help while (presumably) effortlessly dodging Tact’s attacks? A very nice Curb Stomp battle, so far.

    My thanks to you, Yoraikun.

    Thanks for the chapter!

    wow… he really is unneeded… pfft


  14. nowe says:

    and…. the chapter 326??


  15. VanZans says:

    Thanks for the chapter. Ughhhhh now we must wait longer for facts scheduled ass beating. Glad to know everyone’s pretty much dishing out ass whooping all around to the douches harem haha.


    • Xias says:

      Unfortunately – but as expected (lol) – Bitch is missing in the fight.
      She´s probably hiding somewhere with an emergency escape method ready to run away on her own and to forsake Tact.
      So once again she escapes her just punishment.
      Dam* it!
      (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻


      • shira says:

        well, she’s hero of escape after all.
        and we can learn something from witch, that pride won’t bring anything positive in long run.


      • Jc says:

        Even if she escapes right now all i want is to see tact look and feel hopeless infront of nafoumi. I kind of want galieon or firo to go full on monster and even eat person their fighting in front of tact……is that wrong lol?


        • yes, and you should feel ashamed xD

          maybe Sadina crushing her opponent or Ren beheading another Dragon xD (or at least releasing his new curse)
          also Firo is already fighting in beast form (flying and stuff)


  16. kirindas says:

    Thanks for the new chapter!


  17. frenzy85 says:

    That was anti-climactic… After all that hubbub about a whole army of lvl 300s, Naofumi has time for sightseeing while fighting this Hero of the Whip?


    • That’s cause new naofumi can cast Enchants/reinforcement at Revelation lvl… you know he’s a real hero against a fake hero…


      • Ninza says:

        Read the chapter b4 this…he now move so much faster that tact ‘s moving is super slow to him… thank to Revelation + Cane/Wand amplifies. Anyway only tact is 300+ his other members just around 250. Naofumi group + Revelation Aura <= Tact's companion now stat wise.


    • Yoraikun says:

      It was stated previously that Revelation Aura almost or more than doubled Firo’s stats. Now he even made an improvement on that.


      • Nordisk says:

        I think the Seven Star Heroes can use the Revelation Level Magic, my guess is Tact didn’t know about it because the Dragon Emperor Fragment that knew about the Revelation Magic belonged to Gaelion.


    • Jc says:

      Um only Tact is level 350 while all his harem are around 250 give er take. And while they are 250 they dont have any support magic on them. All of nafoumis gang has had revelation magic which practically doubles all there stats as well as many of them have studied a martial arts that was considered OP in war. You forget tact isn’t smart at all he just used his previous knowledge to have an edge. Fighting people with actual intelligence and experience i feel it doesnt matter what your level is if your stupid.


      • Apple Ringo says:

        Yup, no matter how high your Lvl are. Enemy with more experience, coordination and tactics will overwhelm you…DOTA experience :)


  18. cloudmcleod says:

    Thanks for the chapter!


  19. Ninza says:

    Thank for the chapter!!!!!


  20. Teunayven says:

    I just gotta ask… if Sadina’s true transformation is truly a Sealion… Does that mean that Sadina comes from the mighty Urf race?

    God I want to play Sadina in League of Legends now…


  21. lazyguy says:

    “That’s a false accusation, but you made an enemy of Naofumi-sama, and sided with that egotistic sunnavabitch. I won’t hold back.” (Raphtalia)

    Had to stop and laugh at this for a while XD


  22. Sodemas says:

    thx for the chapter o/


  23. Nordisk says:

    Will there be a chapter where Naofumi removes all the Hero Weapons from Tact while in mid-fight? That would be awesome! He’ll be like, WTF!? Man, give em’ back *tantrums like a little sunnavabitch”.


  24. madmann135 says:

    I appreciate the work you put into translating this series. I hope you can keep it up.

    This is probably the most interesting fight arc yet in the series. Naofumi went from a Support tank to a Support spellcaster and his crew is going toe to toe with some of the most powerful individuals in the series yet.

    The only thing I am upset about is that updates are not daily. I know the original series was weekly, bi weekly, or monthly. But this is a fight and fights are supposed to be fast paced. I know nothing can be done about my complaint, but that is my only complaint. It is better than the original release schedule.


  25. MMZX says:

    Thanks for the chapter, Loled at the end.


  26. Mario says:

    Filorials fighting in a war…well i guess they had many wars, but i incline myself for the first hero´s war or Demi-human genius Naofumi´s war…Firo is a good breed so i guess Filorials were created for that, but i can´t be sure…even so is interesting.
    Thanks for the chapter.


    • Yoraikun says:

      Wait, where does Keiichi fit in your calculations?


      • Mario says:

        I do not follow…wait you mean the person who write things on the turtle?…if that is him(please reply to this, because i am not sure he is him) then it could be even possible Naofumi being him (Keiichi)…remember Naofumi lose his name when he transformed to a demi-human…Alucia change his name (apparently the wife of tiger people give names to their husbands), and remember if Witch was there (when she was a hero) then the possibility of creating a war is pretty much possible.
        By the way i was talking about breed, because Firo´s ability to enter on peoples mind and reveal their lies. If you think about it that´s very usuful against Witch…something similar to Raphs…thanks to their DNA´s code they need to say “fake” to Raphtalia. I am thinking Filorials had that similar function, but against Witch.
        I love this story…


        • Yoraikun says:

          I’m pretty sure Allucia was just a pseudonym.


        • Mario says:

          Well, obviously…Alucia was Lucia actually (who was the sister of Trash)…that´s not the point…if Keiichi (by the way is the guy of the turtle? do not make me check) is Naofumi then that means Alucia (Lucia) give him the name of Naofumi, if that´s the case make even more possible the theory of Atlas being Alucia (Lucia). And that´s why it was not difficult for Atlas to say his name, and Atlas was then about the God of his world (you know him: the God who carry the world).
          Haha, thanks for the work.


        • fuew12 says:

          Umm i bit lost about it, are you read ahead or this from light novel. After all when naofumi become demi-human


        • DarknessWolf says:

          Light novel!?


        • Mario says:

          …no, these are facts…i am reading the same thing as you…basically i am saying:
          Original Naofumi was Keiichi (i already check it…keiichi was the guy of the turtle) it´s a good theory but nothing conclusive. Keiichi seems a good guy so i am hoping about he being him. Thanks to the spirits the theory seems more stable.


    • Rational Blockhead says:

      long story short, its all in your head only


  27. Bunta says:

    thanks for the translation! :)


  28. freebeer says:

    Thanks you very much… I almost don’t get the meaning of baba-loli. But with your perfect explanation even I could understand that loli=loli and baba=baba… I was thinking that was something like pretty man.

    =) love you ❤


  29. cursedreader says:

    argh cant see ur new header at mobile


  30. Pyro says:

    you know, while reading this chapter I thought of the following meme. :) thank you for the chapter btw.


  31. shira says:

    thanks for the update, and the header…..

    bdw, aren’t Naofumi and the gang getting too overpowered just by one spell? i mean, Naofumi and the gang lvl only around 100, but using 1 spell can outpower lvl 350, isn’t that breaking the balance? like that no heroes even bother lvling past 100, since you can cast 1 spell for the battle.


    • Yoraikun says:

      Only Tact is 350. The others are around 250, and when Naofumi used a normal Revelation Aura before, Firo’s stats doubled.


      • Jc says:

        Geezes and firo is already a monster hahaha. The Filorial queen had already said any filorials that were raised by the Shield Hero himself would already be around 4 times stronger than any other filorial species out there. So having her already insane powers doubled. I hope she eats that griffon chick infront of tact………is that bad?


      • shira says:

        yeah, sorry about lvl thing, and that’s what i mean, stats doubled with just using 1 spell (and that still the normal one), the spell can easily broke the lvl system (for a period of time though).


    • "Real Raph Returns says:

      there are some things you gotta consider, Tact is the only one lvl350, his party is lvl250, vs. Naofumi’s party with everyone lvl 100
      Tact seems to not have any weapon reinforcements as far as we know, while Naofumi has 5-6 reinforcements from the 4 heroes and 7 heroes systems.
      Naofumi’s stats have been redistributed so his Def stats are moved to Mag stats
      the cane reduces cast time, spell cost, effect time and spell strength
      Tact has been fighting with Modern day martial arts(the cute play fighting we see kids do with no killing and rules against dangerous moves) and is also not even trained in them (probably imitating TV, so he probably doesnt even have a white belt), Naofumi has been fighting Hengen Musou a real martial art designed to kill by real masters of the art and has been trained in it to a certain extent.
      Tact has been relying mostly on stat differences from high lvls, which has been negated by Naofumi’s X level revelation level sp and mp powered Aura boost skill boosted by high Mag stat, high affinity to support magic, and the cane


  32. DarknessWolf says:

    Thanks. :)


  33. whome says:

    Thanks for the chapter!

    Now we’re seeing some action! Yeahh!


  34. JohnnyBravo says:

    Fighting a level 350 hero while looking around at his companions surprising the ~250 lvl minions and rekking, SHEILDBRO!


  35. VanZans says:

    So ok i’m assuming this Cane/wand nafoumi is holding when it meant that he could use skill points into magic and what not in a new way, is that implying the revelation aura he just cast is even more OP?


    • Ninza says:

      IT’s a SUPER Revelation Aura spell….so yes it’s OP—-> u can do matrix after lol..


    • "Real Raph Returns says:

      the cane is essentialy the Mage hero weapon so Naofumi can use magic he is not affined to now so he can use offensive spells too, the cane naturally boost everything magic but also has an enhancement system for individual spell, and also the other systems Naofumi has been using up til now, meaning higher base weapon stats. naturally support magic has been Naofumi’s affinity so he also has better mastery of support spells even before he got the cane (although the 4 hero weapons had a part in magic affinity, its likely that they only boosted their original affinity to certain magics


      • Rational Blockhead says:

        now that you mention it, the cane really does sounds like a mage hero. but if it was so, shouldn’t the weapon become a staff instead? but Staff hero isn’t really cool to say does it? lol. stick with using cane


    • shira says:

      i think he reallocate the skill points from what he gained when still using shield to increase skills level from the cane. you know, like skill point system on mmorpg around (first thing came to mind is Skill Point System on Ragnarok Online).

  40. Leightjim says:

    Tact’s LVL 300 group is getting stomped by Noafumi’s LVL 100 Group? How humiliating.

    “That’s a false accusation, but you made an enemy of Naofumi-sama, and sided with that egotistic sunnavabitch. I won’t hold back.”

    Nice one, Raphitalia.

    Thank you for the awesome translation.

  44. scowly says:

    It wouldn’t be “I.E.” for the lolibaba comment, it would be “e.g”. “i.e.” is used when you are clarifying, “e.g” is used when giving examples. To use “i.e.” implies that Shiroyasha is the only Lolibaba in existence.

    If the pig king is dead and Tact’s chicks needed a lesson – can I apply for the position of the pig king and be the epiphany of terror for women? hehe..

      Pig king was this worlds boogie man, Krampus, and satan, judger of evil, a necessarius evil, feel free to apply but be warned that you will also likely have to deal with effeminate little boys too
