Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken - Chapter 69 (Re-Edit)

Translator & Proofreader Corner
TL: Because the point of view in this chapter changes between Rimuru and 3rd Person Narrative, I give the POV remainder below.
This Chapter is long, so please comment if you find any mistakes!
PR: In the re edited version some tense issues and grammatical incongruity have been fixed.

Guro & Yukkuri Oniisan
Editor & TLC:

 This chapter contain gore and cruelty depiction. Please skip if this disturbs you. (TL: Of course you won’t, right?)

Birth of Demon Lord

 (POV: Rimuru)
After the conversation concerning Youmu had ended, the real strategic conference shall begin in earnest.
Everyone is looking at me with stiff expressions.
Let’s hear their opinions first.

First of all, before I give my own opinion, I want to hear what everyone has in mind.

Hearing that, everyone started to actively give various replies.
Only Gabil, himself, can use spirits. So, it can’t be helped.
I want to avoid permeating the barrier too many times. (TL: opening and closing)
Everyone put together their opinions.

To sum it up.

There’s an opinion, that the humans who are responsible for the cowardly surprise attack should not be forgiven.
Certainly, that’s true. I don’t think that method of thinking is wrong.
There’s also another opinion. There are also good humans, so it’s not right to lump them all together indiscriminately.
Hearing such opinions made me glad. It will not be good, if we incorrectly reach our goals through anger and resentment.

The second opinion was the general consensus in the room.
This proved that there are monsters who wish to live in coexistence with humans.
They still follow my rules, even after the tragedy occurred.
They are my dear companions. The important people who I can call my family.
The me who doesn’t truly love anyone; I who think that love is something shady.
While everyone was calming down, I made my conviction.

Everyone, please listen

Everyone turned there attention towards me.
When I got everyone’s attention, I began my story.

I am a former human; a “Reincarnated Person”.

Although everyone raised their voices, no one tried to interrupt my story.
I think Ranga may already have knowledge about this.
He may have heard it while residing in my shadow.
Nobody seemed really surprised, maybe they were already aware of it before I told them.
Seeing the situation is like this, I continued.

I am a person who came from a different world. In that world, I was human.
When I died on that side, I reincarnated into this side; as a slime.
In the beginning, I was alone and lonely, who could of  predicted that I could make so many companions.
You guys.
Perhaps, you attained your humanoid form when you evolved because the process was reliant upon the desires of the person who invoked the change.
That is why I made the rule “Do not attack humans”.
I said that I liked humans, because I was a formerly a human myself.
I created that rule, without the intention for any of you guys to be harmed...
I, even though I am a monster, I have a human heart.
Because of that … that time … I held such selfish preferences.
Because I am a former human, I also want to get along with humans.
The result of that… I neglected to see what was right in front of me. And this … the result.
I can see that I am the one who is truly responsible for these events transpiring.
I am deeply sorry......

Hearing my story, the room fell under a curtain of silence.
Each of them tried to make sense of my story.

It is a fact that Rimuru-sama is a former human. However I cannot see any problem that may arise from this.

Hakurou said this with serious face.
Eh!? I did not expect this sort reaction.
I expected that I would have been treated like an enemy.

But your master is a former human, right? Do you not find it unpleasant?

In response to that question,

Eh? Why should I?
My only Lord is Rimuru-sama.
I also think like that.

And so on and so forth.
And at the last one, Rigurudo.

Rimuru-sama, everyone’s feelings have not changed a bit.
There is no need for you to worry over this matter anymore.
So he said.
I nod and think. As I expected, this is the place where my heart belongs. (TL: Home is where your heart belongs.) (ED: And where you waifu is) (TL: I don’t have waifu..... T_T)
(PR: 4ever alone… :<)
I am really happy.
After seeing me nodding, Kaijin open his mouth,

So, I want to hear something. What you intent to do about the interactions between humans and us from now on?
Everyone turned to face me.
Yes, that is indeed a problem.
With the exception of monsters, this is a great problem for Kaijin and the other dwarfs.
When the time comes when I am forced to declare humans as my enemies, I will be considered as a new threat.
Well, such time may not come.
For now, I expressed what my ideas are concerning this matter.

First of all, before I give my final answer, I will share some values from my previous world.
In the previous world there was an ideological view of inherent morality and its derivative inherent human nature.
This view assumes that people are innately born with the ability to tell right from wrong and from this people are born inherently good or bad.
I think that inherent human nature has its merits.
Humans may contain both the qualities of being moral or immoral in equal proportions.
If the moral side is more dominate then the immoral side, then that person will become a good.
However, if the conditions are reversed, then the person will become bad.
In truth, I had this view.
If you are not trying to do anything immoral, then in my eyes you are a good person.
Thus, if someone didn’t detest or distrust us just because of us being monsters, then they are a good neighbor.
I want to believe in this value.
But because I want to believe it, I underwent such an experience; I failed to properly distinguish the idealistic views I held from real world.
Thus, this is my answer.
For now, I think that it is too early for us to be at a stage where we safely can ally with humans.
The first important thing to do is for my existence is acknowledged by the others.
For humans, someone who amasses massive power can’t be ignored.
In addition, by becoming a Demon Lord, I can restrain the other Demon Lords actions.
To everyone who went against us, we will bare our fangs and retaliate.
To everyone who lends their hands to us, we will grant our blessing to them.
To our opponents, we will do to them what they have done to us.
In the future, I hope that we can be linked in a friendship one day.
These are my views on the matter.

(TL note: I don’t found any equal western philosophical term. The closest one I had is Seizensetsu as Idealism. – YukkuriOniisan.
I don’t excel in philosophy. - Guro) (ED: and English) (GO: So mean.... don’t mind. XD)
(PR:I think that it is better to get the closest in western idealism as possible. I think it portrays a similar view + I <3 Immanuel Kant)

So I finish my speech.
He then responds.

That is an overly naive and idealistic point of view.
Honestly! It’s not a speech fit for someone who’s going to become a Demon Lord.
....... However, I don’t dislike it.

With a sigh, Kaijin conveyed his thoughts
Shuna exclaimed, while giggling.

Isn’t it fine? Even if it’s just an idealistic method of thinking.
I think that if it’s Rimuru-sama, you will be able to create such world.

So she declared her support.

At any rate, we have decided to obey, so we will obey no matter what. We've gone past thinking about it.

The one who just abides the rule without thinking, Gerudo, sincerely make his frank but meaningful declaration.

Hey, to make Rimuru-sama into the king. Isn’t that my duty?

Benimaru also...

I am Rimuru-sama faithful shadow. I will perform any instruction that I receive.

Shouei also...

We will establish a new country, aiming to change everyone's way of thinking.

Youmu also said it.
Everyone, each respective words, showed their approval.
I receive the weight of their words.
To push forth my foolish ideal, there is no need to make an excuse for it next time.

I understand. Please follow my own selfishness!

To my words,

「「「Danna (Rimuru-sama), we know (understand) it was your selfishness.」」」
Everyone unanimously agreed.

... ... ... ...
... ... ...
... ...

Well then, it’s now the time for the strategic conference against the military invasion.
The ones who invading this time, are allied forces of Falmas Kingdom and Western Saint’s Church.
The main force of Falmas Kingdom was approximately composed of 5,000 regular knights and 4,000 mercenaries.
Having accepted the request from Falmas Kingdom, the Western Saint’s Church sent their crusaders of 2,000 infantry, and 3,000 troops specialized in dealing with monsters, attentively named the anti-monster squad.
And, the most troublesome,  1,000 knights from the Church Chivalric Order.
The total count of the army was 15,000, a powerful war potential.
Youmu’s subordinates, who were scattered in various places, came with this information.
It seemed that the number of soldiers that were assembled exceeded my predictions.

How’s should we arrange our troop composition?

Gerudo said while bracing himself.
In any event, my corps will make their stand at the front.

Benimaru also felt highly motivated.
He had formed a private hobgoblin corps.
Has this come from Hakurou’s guidance?
Riguru commands the Goblin Wolf Riders whom are in  a state of rage.
I am not the only one who’s infuriated by the tragedy.

Sorry, but this time, I’ve decide that only I should go.
I want you guys to leave it to me.

........ What do you mean?

Benimaru asked as the representative of everyone in the room, I then began to elaborate.
This time, it is for the ceremony of me becoming a Demon Lord.

The necessary sacrifices (Souls) for me to become a Demon Lord are 10,000 people.
It’s fortunate that the number of invaders falls above 15,000; That exceeds the rquirement.
This is a necessary ceremony (process) for me to become a Demon Lord.
So this time, I am the only one required to expunge the invaders.

So I said.
Actually, there’s no need for me to do the massacre personally.
It’s the answer from Great Sage, as long as the deaths were conducted by my intention the condition will be cleared.
A sudden thought crossed in my mind, maybe the goal of the Demon Lord Clayman is to cause the war and to gather 10,000 human souls?
Because the attack of a single limited, war will make it easy to harvest their souls, this might be his true intention, that is, to evolve to a new Demon Lord.
My predictions may be correct, for a small fry to wage war by himself is impossible, but it is something trivial for me.
That wasn’t the only the reason why I choose to fight alone.
It is because I feel the need to take responsibility this time. I can’t always rely on others strength.
If I am defeated here, then that means I was only worth that much.
Though I understand that this is my own selfishness, however there is a reason behind it.

Besides, there is also a task for you guys.
Currently, I believe that Shion and the other’s souls are locked inside the barrier.
So, if in the war the barrier is disturbed, it may become undone, then the souls may disappear.
Though it is reinforced by my magic power, if the fight begins the magic power  I exert may be hindered and it can disappear.
I want you guys to reinforce the barrier, and to call out to Shion and the others.

This, I don’t know if it is really necessary, but it’s a request I want them to do it
Even if it’s only raising the possibility a little..
Currently, I am emitting my entire magic power.
To maintain the barrier, the inside of the barrier is also filled with magic power (Energy).
Physics and Magic retain the same rules, from macro to micro.(PR: Conservation of energy?)
In other words, the space is filled with energy, I think that the souls that are covered by energy will held in place and not become dispersed.
If the soul’s protection disappears, it may pass the barrier and dissipate.
Humans can enter the barrier without any difficulty, as their magic power component is scarce.
Regarding a soul, because it is a pure energy, it is hampered by the barrier.
A Monster’s astral body is composed of magic power. I think that this is necessary increase the probability of the energy dispersing.
If I go to the war, I want the remaining people to maintain the current barriers condition.
If I want to be able to use my whole power, this is the best solution according toGreat Sage’s opinion.
Maybe, even if Hinata came along with the invasion forces, I will still be able to purge everyone by myself.
I had seen her skill. That is my biggest advantage. I won’t allow myself to be defeated for the second time in a row.
Seeing my determination, Benimaru nodded.

Acknowledged, this time we will leave everything to Rimuru-sama. Please give them our share of rage.

I reply to that with a nod.
In the first place, there is no intention to forgive the enemy.
I receive everyone’s acknowledgement, I will become the only opponent for the invading army.
The seventh day.
Below me I see host of soldiers (ants) are marching.
But now I can only see them as food . (TL: Rimuru only seen soldier as food/fodder now.)
Those bastards, they will become Shion’s sacrifices.....
Properly speaking, there should of been a declaration of.
But, right now.
The enemy has already declared it and it has been received. In that case...
These bastards, I will eviscerate every last one of them.
There is no need for survivors; there is no need to fight fairly.
Those humans (Trash)...
To become nourishment for my evolution. You all should be grateful.
I’m now high in the sky, soaring with my mimicry wing, I looked down at my below and confirm the situation.
There is no problem.
I developed a new magic just for the sake of decimating these bastards.
Now let justice be done!
(TL: Through the heavens fall. Forgive me for the reference; believe me when I said it is related with what will happen next. Actually Rimuru only say: Let’s do it now.)(PR: we need to make Rimuru look as cool as possible.)

Die! Be pierced and burned by Divine Indignation! “God’s Wrath (Megiddo)”!!!

Dancing light rain down from the sky, it reflected repeatedly above the ground and was covered onto a single point, it pierced the soldiers’ bodies without meeting any resistance, and so the massacre begins.
In the army, there are magic divisions that contain specialists who can erect defensive barriers.
Even if the number of opponents is high, if I am in close proximity to them the <core attack magic> will obliterate them in a single blow.
So, to take cover under a barrier is a common military tactic in this world.
Of course, there is also defensive barrier carefully prepared this time.
Even if they march to a city full of high level monster, which they considered as a joke, the level barrier is still skilfully done.
However, before the wrath new magic resistance is futile.
In this world, the principle of barrier magic is specialized for defense against magic power.
So it means that they hadn’t any resistance against things that abide law of physics.
That is the result of the analysis of barrier, so that fact has been confirmed.
If you think about it, the heat from thousand degree flames can be stopped completed by a barrier, et cetera, so what is the cause that the barrier is able to interfere with the natural phenomenon?
This worlds <Elemental magic> uses and manipulated magic power in order to invoke interference in physical law.
That’s why, to prevent it, defensive barriers prevent the entry of magic power.
Except for overwhelming the barrier with magical power, it is nearly impossible to break a barrier.
Also, since it prevents the entry of magic power, it become impossible to cause any physical interference inside it.
So, what about <Spirit Magic>? Because it rewrites the physical law because of the spirit’s power to cause interference, it still had power although is in smaller scale.
Of course if they put spirit barrier, <Spirit Magic> usage can be prevented.
That is the reason that the most basic barrier had multiple, more than two, layers.
Therefore, to swap such notion, I decide to invent a way to turn magic into pure physical energy.
I take inspiration from Hinata’s “Disintegration”, entrusting Great Sage to turn it into practical application.
By entrusting all calculation, it was easy to put it into practical use.
I create several hundred thousand floating water droplets in my surroundings.
Far up in the sky, there are several dozen giant floating water droplets similar to convex lens.
The convex lens shaped water droplets up in the sky receives sunlight and converge it into a thin line, down below the water droplets form reflective mirror array, that is used to converge it more.
The water droplets are created by me with water spirit energy.
Thus the sunlight, that the water droplets reflect, converges to become as thin as a pencil and its temperature reaches thousand degrees.
All the water droplets capture and converge the sunlight energy, this is reflection converging magic.
This is my new magic, <Physics Magic> “God’s Wrath (Megiddo)”.

At the first simultaneous firing, no less than 1,000 soldiers were vaporized.
Below me, the march became chaotic; God’s Wrath (Megiddo) is instilling panic.
Of course this is not the end.
Using the most optimum calculation, by adjusting the position, the second attack commences.
Not able to resist it more than 1,000 soldiers perish.
This magic has a frightening aspect. That is, the energy cost is low.
The water droplets created by the magic at the final point of the firing, will evaporate and disappear because of the heat, but it’s possible to replace them in an instant.
For that reason, I use water spirit magic. The water can be created without using too much energy.
This process can finish under one minute, and then it’s possible to fire it again. After all, I only need to replace the water and adjust its position.
And, the magic power is only needed to maintain the water spirit.
The energy source that contributed the most is the symbol of natural energy, The Sun.
The only problem is that it’s only usable at daytime, but it’s daytime right now.
All problems are cleared, now I can finally clean those people (Trash) below me.
Without any sound the hit comes with the speed of light, not letting the soldiers to resist, they all pierced and burned, it’s a massacre.
Soldiers with poor armor, Knights with superior metal armor.
They all killed equally without any differences.
However, I don’t aim at a particularly splendid carriage.
It’s uncertain if the King gotten in it, but it’s impossible for him to remorse if he is killed.
But I’m not that merciful.
The rewards for invoking my imperial wrath, I’ll make sure he received it......
Initiating a one-sided fight, only about five minutes, 2/3 of the invading armies were incapacitated. (TL: Killed.....)
It’s such a good time........
I’m slowly descending to the ground with my fluttering wing.
To those foolish ones, I will give them further despair.
(POV: The omniscient Great Narrator in the sky, 3rd person)
Right now, what had happened in front of his eyes? King Edomalis was at a loss for words.
No, it’s not only King Edomalis, the head of royal palace magician and the knight leader too, nobody from the upper echelon could understand what had transpired before them.

Ugyaaaaaa!!Arm, my arm.......!!!!!

Help, please help.......

Uwaaaaaaaaa, from where, where the heck it’s coming from!!?

The battlefield, instantly turn into Hell’s Pandemonium.
Just a while ago, the troop morale was high; they all had full confidence in victory......
The veteran knights who survived through many battle, from unknown direction light comes and penetrate their chest rewarding them an instant death.
The still young volunteer soldiers, trying to escape without understanding what had happened.
The dispatched knights from the Church had full confidence in their barrier, but those barriers were meaningless, I sneer when they were decapitated.
The weak and the strong, everyone equally trembling in terror.
No one tried to retaliate.
Maybe, if Hinata was here, she might have been able to respond immediately against it and erect a <Physics Barrier>.
After all, <Physics Barrier> is a secret in Magic art. People who are able to use it are limited and the effective range is small......
But Hinata is not here, so there’s no use to imagine a hypothetical situation.
King Edomalis felt the terror that makes him hard to breathe, he desperately tries to endure it.
He tries to protect his dignity as a King.
Thinking desperately with his collapsing mind.
No matter how you look at it, the military endeavor had failed. To escape with their life from this hellscape, but it’s already too late, that won’t happen.
Why did it turn out like this...? No, that is not important right now.

Folgen… what should… what should we do?

He asked his dependable knight leader.
The honorable knight leader is the strongest in the kingdom. He is not inferior even to a rank A Adventurer, he is a hero with long military history.
A trusted retainer that the King could always depend on.
And yet, there is no answer from Folgen.

Folgen, what happen, why are you not answering? Folgen!!!

In fear and confusion. He said with his voice mixed with anger, he tap the knight leader’s shoulder.
Shaking violently, his sturdy body tilts, and collapse.
If you observed him closely, his temporal region was gone, the brain had leaked out.


King Edomalis shout in horror, he fall down and unable to stand due to fear in his carriage.
The carriage is an open type, it was used to boost everyone’s morale but now it had backfired.
While discharging warm liquids from his groins, he tries to escape by crawling.(PR: XD rekt)
Now, he doesn’t care anymore about his dignity as a King.
Die, if he stays in here, he will die!!
Falling into state of panic, he frantically tried to run away.
However, there’s no one who notices the king appearances. Because every one of them desperately running for their own life.
The symbol of justice against monsters are the 1,000 knights of the Church Chivalric Order, however they had been killed without a chance to do anything.
While they were inferior to Holy Knights, each of them is equal to a rank B adventurer in term of battle prowess.
The one who should of had absolute superiority against monsters, were annihilated in a blink of an eye.
Their fall into panic is, of course, justified.
At that time, the soldiers who were petrified by fear, looked towards the  sky.
King Edomalis also looked at the sky.
Someone was descending from the sky, a person with a black bat-like wing.
The persons height was rather small, wearing a beautiful mask
On that mask, there is a crack that made it seem like it was crying.
Wearing a sublime beautiful black kimono, with beautiful black hide armor on the outside.
That person didn’t carry any weapon.
That person is a Demon.... No, it’s Demon Lord.
It’s a Demon Lord! His instinct screamed.
At that time, at last, the king realized the grand mistake that he had made.
It is not something you can fight against.
The one Burmund Kingdom had relationship with.
The Demon Lord in front of him, that outfit. It must have been woven from beautiful silk cloth.
That appearance.
The Demon Lord in front of him must be the ruler of that city.
That means, Hinata Sakaguchi from the Church, did it means that she failed!? (TL: In this world given name then family name.)
That calculating cruel witch, it had been said that she has never failed in her task.
But, it wouldn’t be strange if it was someone who surpassed that witch.
This Demon had such an aura emanating from it.
For all that, it’s a fact that can only be accepted. This Demon carries the same appearance that is similar to a Demon Lord......
No, there is still a chance. At that moment, an idea flashed inside the king’s mind.
I am a King, I might be able to talk away to it and negotiate! That is a skillful line of reason, after returning to the country I can prepare a counterattack.
If he is the opponent who gladly conducted negotiations with Burmund, there is no doubt, it must prostrate before me, the King of a great nation Falmas Kingdom! Like this...
The king had lost himself in his foolish thoughts, and he made yet another great mistake.
In this matter, he was no longer angry self-preservation is the only thought in his head.

(POV: Rimuru.)
Well, I saw a terrible situation when I arrived in the ground,
With Magic Perception, I obtain information of the situation perfectly; I can reliably pierce the vital point from blind spots.
Occasionally, to create confusion, I purposely sever an arm, a leg or the body, the screaming from pain that emerge from that causes further chaos.
This terrible situation was progressing in the way I had imagined before.
The surviving soldiers that saw my appearance fell further into fear.

Hiiiiiiiiiiii, he... help!

Although I heard the voice that seemed to be of someone begging for his life, I didn’t care about it and pierced the middle of his forehead.
It takes time to get used to it, but now I can control the beam according to my will.
The angle of reflection is simple, it’s low cost, so I can shoot as many as I like.
If you converge the heat ray into a single spot, it will reach thousands degrees, so it will arrive at the point where it is possible to pierce a human with it.
If you had learnt the principle behind it, it is possible to shoot it optimally at will.
There is only little time lag, in another words, it is the same as speed of light, if you can see it then you can’t avoid it.
For example if you shoot it from 10,000 km, the time for it to reach the target is about 0.034 second.
Even if a human eye receives information about it, the time for it to be transmitted and reach the brain is much slower.
This calculation to aim precisely cannot be performed without using the Great Sage’s computational ability.
As one would expect from Great Sage. I once again became amazed.
If it was used in close proximity, even me with Great Sage’s compensation, will have had difficulty evading it. In my situation, if I for a moment sensed it, it hard to know if I would have been able to dodge it, I will leave it to when that time comes.
Therefore, it is impossible for a human to dodge it.
I shot at some people who were trying to run away,crawling similar to the ones whom prostrating to me, while I was doing that,

Confirmed. Unique Skill Heartless Oneacquisition... Succeeded.

It is not the Great Sage but the voice from heaven that I haven’t heard for a long time.
How to put it, this skill sucks….
Although one may say that it can’t be avoided for me to receive this skill
When I wonder what kind ability it had, that bastard begin to talk.

Wa, wait! You (Kisama) must be the lord of that city!
I am, Edomalis, the king of Falmas Kingdom.
Behave yourself! I hear what you (Kisama) want to talk.

That dirty ossan flapping his mouth.
When I saw him, his nether region was covered with piss; his face is decorated with tears, mucus and drool.
What a gross figure. Is what I had a burning desire to shout.
It’s like the feeling when my browser crashes.
Oh well, the one I targeted introduce himself, It’s a good thing.
With this I can get the mastermind.

What? You just want to hear me.

So I answered.

Im, impudence! I am the king of the great nation Falmas Kingdom!
You are a being that by all rights had no privilege to address me.
However, it’s fine. This time...

Then, in one hit, his arm was burned off.
He doesn’t give off an appearance that should receive someone else respects.
Furthermore, he still isn’t aware of the current situation, he won’t die, but he will sobered up with this.
Well, he may die in agony... but if possible, the one who should kill him is not me, but the person (Shion) who had the grudge is the one who should do it.

Listen, You (Trash).  Look at your opponent before talking.
Don’t get cocky just because I am benevolent person.
You are permitted to talk, continue.

At the beginning, just looking blankly, is the ossan who stares at his missing left hand.
When his brain catch up, it seems that the pain instantly attack him.
He screams and began rolling around.
Umm... He is a great person? But he seems to lack any honor?
That one who said to be a great person = ossan in front of me now, my mind hardly can find the resemblance.
Oh dear, well, I think my anger has calm down a bit.
However, if this person dies, I’m afraid that my anger will rebound back.

Hm? Is there nothing more you want to say?
You can continue display your dance, but after ten minutes, it will end, you hear me.

Hearing my words, he looks at me, and seems to try to speak something.
His voice is not in fear or pain. What an annoying ossan.
It can’t be helped. I will leave him in pain for some more time.
The Ossan reluctantly raise his head.

I will only say it once. Speak!

I threaten him.
At first, his words sound faintly, but at last it seems he becomes more settled.
And so,

My, my country wants to enter a diplomatic relationship, can’t it be done?
It’s a good talk right? I had been deceived,                                                                    
I don’t think that the city had a reliable person like you.
However, it’s fortunate that it’s the opposite!
The country with this wonderful hero can be considered as a diplomatic relationship partner.
If you enter diplomatic relationship with my country, then we can mutually be in peace together.
If you secure peace with my country, then you will receive the support from my country.
This is mutually benefiting us, isn’t it?
Either way, I will also introduce you to the Council.
How’s that? Of course, you will received it?

This guy, is he a genius?
How can I become this mad, he want to taste more agony no less than death, is that what he talks about?
The Ossan, without noticing that I am baffled by him, keeps talking without reading the mood. (TL: A KY-ossan)
For now, let just shut his mouth by burn off his right leg.
Though he is screaming after getting shot, he won’t die.
Even if you don’t do anything to stop the bleeding, the blood will not bleed out because the blood vessels had been cauterized.
Because it’s best to leave him alive, it was convenient.
I notice the surroundings somehow become quieter and so I take a look, it seems that the surviving soldiers fear and respect me, they all are prostrating in the ground.
They pray desperately, for the first time they are begging for their life.
Unfortunately, such decision was already too late, my generous heart was painted by anger.
Right, the analysis of Unique Skill Heartless One had just been completed.
The effect is, to the person who begs for their life, with its ability it will be possible to seize the soul of the person who begs for help.
In other words, this ability works against people who lost their fighting spirit, which send death sentence to them.
Though the skill wouldn’t be much of use, this time the ability is extremely useful.

Question. Do you want to use Unique Skill Heartless One? YES/NO

Yes. I answered with a calm mind, there is no hesitation.
Immediately after I use the ability, besides the king that I didn’t specifically set as a target, and without being able to offer any resistance, everyone else died.
With my ability, several thousand surviving soldiers perished.
The battlefield that was filled with waves of pain and fear had become calm.
To end the pain and fear instantly, consider this as my benevolence.
For the king that remains alive for now, there will be further pain and fear waiting for him......
At this time,

Notification. The necessary human soul (nourishment) for the requirement of evolution (Seed’s Sprouting) had been confirmed ... Recognized.
The requirement had been met. From now, Evolution to Demon Lord (Harvest Festival) will begins.

The Voice of the World resounds in my mind.
Without my consent, my body begins to transform and organized itself.
I am not a person who called himself a Demon Lord, I am the one who turned himself into a True Demon Lord.
On this day....  A new Demon Lord was born in this world



  1. rizza theory crafting session. sources the legend in chapter 68, stats and appearence of millm, genral story of veldoras summoning.
    the theory I have come up with is millim = the hero that sealed the dragon/ and or has at leased sealed veldora or one of the other 4 disaster class dragons in the past
    proof for theory if the legend refers to veldora then the prerequisites for the hero were for her to be a demon lord, be an interesting character (to befriend veldora). have the power to purge a contrary. have a good heart to take on the responsibility to seal the dragon. Th have lived long enough for the story to turn to legend. Due to the legend being passed down in the localised area of the jura forest it further increases the chances that the sealed dragon was veldora. The character must be female. all these traits are held by only one character, millm.
    though tats just a theory,
    a random reference to "game theory" theory. (or I'm just being stupid Q_Q)

    1. From what I understand, Millim's character is basically a princess that had a pet dragon, it was killed, so she went on a rampage and became a demon lord. I want to say Verudora was sealed a few centuries ago, and that hero's description was given. She's also the same hero that rescued the Ifrit flame spirit girl if I recall correctly. Millim's backstory happened further back into the past, she's one of the ancient demon lords.

    2. No, Verudora is not that sealed dragon. In light novel version, after Milim visited city (before Rimuro go to human kingdom), she and Rimuru fought and killed a certain sealed dragon which had unsealed by Clayman's subordinate. I think it was the dragon form a fairytale. Maybe I wrong something because chinese raw is hardly can understand.

  2. 「We shall uphold your beliefs, We have already made our conviction to follow you. Your word is absolute 」(ED: Need TLC 何がどうあれ従うのみ。考えるまでもない)(TL: They follow whatever Rimuru says without doubting it something like that.)(PR:TLC given?)
    >At any rate, we have decided to obey, so we will obey no matter what. We've gone past thinking about it.

    Note that I translated the whole 「どっちにせよ、我等は従うと決めたのだ。 何がどうあれ従うのみ。考えるまでもない」, not just the 「何がどうあれ従うのみ。考えるまでもない」 part.

    Also, this is merely my opinion. I don't think we should translate religion or culture, we can give the closest example possible, but I don't think it's wise to translate culture to something else it isn't supposed to be.

    1. I see It to be better to convey meaning over hard-line literal translation, However you do have a point :3.

    2. The will follow whatever Rimuru's order them to do, So rimuru shouldn't worry about it.
      something like that.

  3. Ah, sorry for being unclear, that religion/culture translation thingy, I meant that for that Seizensetsu, Buddhism, philosophy, etc that you guys were talking about.

    1. Human is bad and good at the same time in their nature, only what they do make them what they are/ what choices they choose in their life.
      Like stealing is bad, everyone can do stealing but only some people do that because the rest of people know it was a bad thing to do.Go stealing and captured y the police make you a criminal which mean you are a bad guy.
      Something like that, can't really explain it clearly, i'm sorry.

  4. In regards to the [Physics and Magic retain the same rules, from macro to micro.(PR: Conservation of energy?)] line. I think its more about the fact of density/pressure. In micro if you add density/pressure you will get a more stable and a cohesive environmet and in macro you will get a difficult to move environment. Meaning that the souls should stick together and not mix to others in micro and in macro they shouldnt move a lot.

    1. Nevermind...I figured out what I was confused about.

  6. will the world react? So everyhing was leading to this moment... i wasnt expecting him to tell his secret of being reincarnated


  8. The chapter is unreadable on the phone.... please fix the page is too wide.

  9. If it 2/3 of the army dead, wouldn that be 10000/15000, so he should be able to be demon lord now in 5 minute.

    1. They were soo much of a piece of s** he needed 5000 more to complete it ...*sigh* those trash can't even be useful even in there death ..truly radiactive unrecyclable trashs ..

  10. Forgive my nitpicking, but please don't ever use the word "of" when you are supposed to say "have" (e.g. could of, should of, etc.)

    An another thing is that the author don't seem to understand basic physics. I know it's strange to bring up real world physics in a fantasy novel, but since it's brought up in this chapter I guess you can't blame me. An example in this chapter is this passage:

    "For example if you shoot it from 10,000 km, the time for it to reach the target is about 0.034 second.

    Even if a human eye receives information about it, the time for it to be transmitted and reach the brain is much slower."

    First of all, it's really strange that the author seemed to bring this up like it's somehow dependent on the target's body reaction speed. As if the target, should they be able to see the attack and somehow manage to move their body out of the way, they would be able to avoid it. I know the purpose of this is to display the attack being unavoidable. But still, it should have been noted that people see things through the eyes, and the eyes are dependent on the light. If the attack is coming at you at the speed of light, there's no way to avoid it regardless of your reaction time since the light your eyes are seeing is literally the attack itself.

    1. Rimuru did say "if you can see it then you can’t avoid it", but got way too wordy after that. Still, if you have really fast reflexes, you can take partial damage and not be killed or dissected instantly. New skill acquired: "enhanced hot potato"

  11. The Demon Lord Of Harvest Festival... What a nice name
