29. Demon King

“Come, Venuzdonoa.”

In response to my call, countless black particles begin to rise up from my feet.

A sword-shaped shadow begins to emerge. There’s no object there, only a shadow exists.

As I raise my hand the shadow sword slowly starts to float.

As I grasp the handle the shadow reversed and in its place was a dark long sword.

“You said it was fated Aivis.”

I lower the sword while talking

“Your body which houses the power of Eugo Ra Raviaz is timeless, permanent, immutable and immortal.”

Aivis pours all of his power into the silvery white world.

In the space where everything is stopped I step forward.

“I obtained the power of a god…… I’m a god……”

Because Aivis has used too much of his magic power the consciousness of Eugo Ra Raviaz has come to the surface.

“I am world providence. I am an immortal with the power of providence and invulnerability.”

No, have they merged together?

Is this the result of fusing with the Time God’s Scythe <Tokigami>?

The consciousness of Aivis and Eugo Ra Raviaz are beginning to merge.

 

“Altering the flow of time is the absolute territory of the gods.”

“You cannot simply overturn fate.”

 

Aivis’ right arm turns into a huge sickle and a huge amount of magic power flows out of it.

 

“Creating miracles is the work of the gods.”

“2 stunted mazoku with only 15 years to live will give no benefits.”

 

Aivis and Eugo Ra Raviaz have started talking together.

“Fate? Providence? Miracles? Kukuku hahahaha.”

Laughter comes deep from my stomach.

“To whom do you think you are talking to? Know your place servant.”

I step another step forward.

“Sasha said she would destroy such a fate.”

Another step forward.

“A miracle happened twice is what Misha said.”

Another step forward.

“My subordinates souls and word are brave and admirable. I will not stand idly by as they are sneered and ridiculed at.”

Aivis readies his scythe as I walk towards him in a grand manner.

 

“Foolish.”

“Do you still think of yourself as the demon king, stupid founder? No one believes in you! You should die in obscurity by yourself!”

 

The scythe is swung down at me.

A single blow and time-space is ruptured but I leisurely capture it with my bare hand.

“What is a demon king? Is it power? A title? Authority? A position?”

“All of it.”

“It’s none of them. I am simply me. To completely annihilate those subordinates who rise up and rebel against this me no matter what their destiny or providence is. That is what a demon king is.”

I raise my sword and speak to my 2 subordinates whose time has stopped.

“If you can’t believe in me that’s fine, however, I will break your destiny if you wish it Sasha. Misha. If you say a miracle has occurred then I will make it so.”

Believe in me or don’t. I don’t care about things like that.

“Do not pray and do not wish. Simply walk behind my back. I will stand before you and block all unreasonableness. I will annihilate it all from now!”

As I loudly declare this a voice rings out.

“……Arnos…….!”

Sasha’s mouth moved slightly in this world where time had stopped.

Her <Demon Eye’s of Ruin> were activated.

She had poured all her magic into it and was desperately resisting the time stop.

The power had also extended to Misha.

“…..Arnos……”

There’s no more words but the thoughts of 2 people were flowing through Thought Domain <Liknos>.

I wanted to change destiny.”

Sasha’s firm will and gentle heart floats across my mind.

Countless thoughts flow into my mind.

[I wanted to save my younger sister.]

[I was convinced I’d lived enough but if I said I had no regrets I’d be lying.]

[I still didn’t know love. I didn’t think I’d die without even having a kiss but there was no help for it. I’d run out of time.]

[Then I met you. A person who could look me in the eye without using anti-magic and had the same eyes.]

[Just that much was enough to make me laugh. But that’s fine.]

[Let’s destroy that fate. Those words you said so very easily………]

[To the me at that time they gave me courage.]

[I gave you my first and last kiss. That should have cleared up my regrets.]

[But……but……if…….]

[If it came true I wanted to see the continuation of that love.]

 

A quiet voice enters my mind.

[15 years is my life]

Her determination and small wishes overflowed as Misha’s calm and gentle heart touched my mind.

[It’s not scary because I never existed from the beginning but I still wanted to make memories.]

[I wanted a friend but nobody would talk to me. No one called my name as I did not exist but then Arnos called my name.]

[Misha. You called it.]

[Whenever you said it my chest got hot. It made me feel like I was alive.]

[Fun and warmth. I almost forgot I did not exist.]

[I had nothing to regret. A miracle happened in my life.]

[However.]

[If there could be one more miracle.]

[I want a birthday present.]

“…….Help me……” Misha says.

The girl who should be preparing to disappear clearly says.

“Help me Arnos. I am here.”

 

Tears spill from Sasha’s eyes as she hears it then she cries out.

“….Nee. Please. Help me Arnos. That only one can live……..There’s no such fate……!!”

I strongly grasp my sword as I’m pushed by the voices from behind.

“Foolish. I am an immortal and indestructible being. I am this worlds providence.”

“Fumu. Then you should try to kill me.”

I brush off the scythe with no difficulty and step forward right in front of Aivis.

Jet black magic rises from my sword giving it the impression that it had grown into a huge blade.

“This is Venuzdonoa.”

The countless anti-magic barriers Aivis had cast on himself all broke as my sword cut through them and him.

 

“….Futile…..”

“This body controls time and providence itself…….what can you do…….”

 

Aivis’ right arm fell off and an astonished voice leaks out.

 

“……What…..the……”

“…..Heal…heal…..heal…….providence……all collapsing…..”

 

“What’s wrong? Aren’t you an immortal existence? This worlds providence is so fragile.”

I swing my blade again and Aivis’ left arm drops off.

It was easily cut off and no matter how much you rewind it won’t go back.

“Impossible…….! Why? To be cut in stopped time and rewinding time is useless!?

I swing again and both of Aivis’ legs are cut.

“….Impossible…..Impossible…..!! What is that sword? I’ve never heard of the founder having a sword!”

“Naturally. I very rarely had the opportunity to draw Venuzdonoa. Those who saw it died without even leaving their origin behind. It’s hard to create a legend when there’s no one alive to tell it.”

I point the blade at the throat of Aivis.

“I’ll give you a pleasant memory to take into the afterlife. Principle destroying sword Venuzdonoa. It can destroy all things in creation and is the sword of the founder. Whether it be destiny, providence or a miracle. In front of me, they can do nothing but grovel and disappear.”

No matter how strong, eternal or infinite Venuzdonoa will destroy them all.

In front of this principle destroying sword all reason becomes illogical.

“I……..!”

Aivis tried to escape with Flight <Fres> but I grabbed him by the face.

“You won’t forget again. I’ll engrave your skull with fear. I am the demon king Arnos Voldigod.”

I plunge the principle destroying sword Venuzdonoa into Aivis’ throat.

At that moment his origin disappears.

“I……I…………..I…………..!!”

In his last moments, this fellow screams out

Is it Aivis or is it Eugo Ra Raviaz?

“I…….am…………….providence…….inadequate…..person……!!”

With that both origins of Aivis and Eugo Ra Raviaz disappear.

With a clanging noise, the Time Gods Scythe <Tokigami> falls to the floor.


Authors note:

So OP! I’ve made the MC so powerful. How am I going to enliven the story moving forward?

  1. Thank you so much for translating the author’s note! I love that this author is noticing, as he is writing this, that his MC is so ridiculously overpowered that it will make it difficult for him to create tension, much less to continue to build that tension to higher climates in the future. :}

    I good peek into the mind of the writer.

    • It could go the one punch man route or instant death? The protagonists are being underestimated and all three are also overpowered. Though Saitama is intentionally written as a parody to OP heroes and superheroes in general while Yogiri is written as a parody to OP Isekai protagonists. It’s still to early to tell and besides, conflicts and tension can still happen without the influence of powers. So let’s see what could potentially happen, it’s a great story to follow after all!

      • I just hope the author doesn’t create characters who somehow have the power to oppose the legendary first demon king who lived through an era of war with gods in it. I would find that to be really annoying.

    • Looking at the current situation where no one knows his name and no other servants meet him even though they know he’s coming, I think the possibility of all his servants betraying him is high. If not, maybe his loyal servants got sealed.

  3. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    Usually when the MC is too OP, the focus is not combat. Some go daily life route, some go to the comedy route, some romance, etc.

  4. nice story, good translation and localization so far. Just wish it had that previous/toc/ next selection at the end of the chapters but hey it’s hard to keep up unless the guys over in NU’s forums know an easy way, but keep up the good translation! I enjoyed it to this point.

  5. Even if all his subordinates rebel, it doesn’t really matter to him. There’s also the hero that promised him they’ll be friends after 2000 years so…

  6. OP!

    Now that’s too OP!

    And so, the story at this point will be the plot and progress.

    Considering the MC(Arnos) dying(close to death fights) is(are) already near nil.

  8. Honestly, I really want everyone to know that Arnos is indeed the real demon king because it is annoying to see how they do not consider him to be the demon king even though he has such tremendous power at such a young age, can use ancient myth spells who nobody knows about and has immense knowledge about the founder’s stuff and immense strength.
