[Shuumatsu] V5 C5 Can I Lie Next to You?

Normal, everyday life is always on the verge of coming to an end.

The repetition of each single day, all on the verge of the end, forms that normalcy.

Sometimes newcomers may enter, but at the same time others must leave.

Changing ever so slightly bit by bit, it continues all the way up until that moment when it meets its true end.

The newspapers reported the attack by a group of Beasts to be the doing of The Order of Annihilation Service History. Owing to their already widespread reputation as a group of violent troublemakers, the news naturally became assimilated and believed within the population.

As for what kind of transaction took place between Elpis and Collinadiluche, and the Winged Guard too, no one knew. Morally speaking, spreading the truth would have been ideal, but, in the worst case scenario, that could lead to a war.

However, if nothing else, the Elpis National Defense Force suffered a major loss of influence as a result of the incident. There was also apparently a large change of personnel in the higher ups of the Winged Guard, so it’s safe to say that Elpis won’t be able to pull off anything similar anytime soon.

—It’s also worth mentioning that in one corner of that newspaper, there was a small article reporting the discovery of the transformed corpse of an Orc on the outskirts of Collinadiluche.


Elq Harksten returned home.

This fact literally shook the 2nd Floating Island, a consecrated land and also the most secretive place in all of Regul Aire.

“WaaaaaaaahhhhhhhElqqqqqqqqq” wailed a giant black skull. The One who Sleeps in Death. The One who Shines Darkness in the Garden of Light. Known by various over the top sounding names, Ebon Candle, one of the three Poteau, threw away any shred of dignity and simply wailed and wailed.

A strange light flickered on and off violently in the insides of his hollow eye sockets, and his lipless teeth clattered together vigorously. “I’m I’m so glad you’re ssaaaffeeeeeee.”

“Shut up you useless oaf,” scolded a huge red floating fish. Also one of the three Poteau, Carmine Lake swam around the surrounding air restlessly, making no attempt to hide her irritation. “In the first place, what the hell have you been doing for five hundred years!? I mean, I understand that you used the master’s soul to protect the world and all, but, after all that time, how have you not made any progress on the star boat’s repairs!?”

“W-What am I supposed to do!? Look at me! I don’t even have enough power to repair my own physical body.”

“That’s just because you’re wasting your energy! Just sink this stupid floating island already!”

“You think I could do such a thing!?”

“Both of you, be quiet!” screamed Elq, sandwiched between the two gods.

“But Elq, if we don’t hurry up and get this guy to regain his power and undo the curse, you’ll be in that half dead body forever, you know? Don’t you want to return to your original form as quickly as possible?”

“T-That’s a little optimistic, but…” Ebon Candle commented.

“I’m fine,” Elq said.

“Huh?” “Hm?” The two gods raised confused voices.

“I’m fine like this.”

“W-W-Whyy!? If you don’t properly come back to life, even if we fix the star boat, your body won’t be able to handle riding on it, you know? You won’t be able to leave this world, you know?”

“I won’t go anywhere. I kinda like this world.”

“No no no! This world is coming to an end! There’s hardly anything here! It’s only a matter of seconds before there’s nothing at all!”

“But, there’s still a few seconds left.”

“Where did that attitude come from!? Hey, Ebon Candle, you say something too!”

“H-Hm?” The skull’s teeth clattered confusedly as he was suddenly drawn into the conversation. “Did you meet some nice people while living on the floating islands?”

“… yes.”

“I see I see. Find a special someone you’re interested in?”

“……… no, not exactly.”

“Wait a second! What kind of questions are you asking!? And what kind of answer is that!?”

“He’s only the slightest bit handsome. Kutori and Leila lowered their standards too far.”

“I see I see.” Like a kind and gentle old man, the skull chuckled softly and nodded repeatedly.

Around them, the floating fish circled and circled, wailing about this and that.

Meanwhile, Nephren gazed blankly at their exchange. Carmine Lake still hadn’t acquired a physical form or whatever, instead residing in a part of Nephren’s mind. However, as long as Nephren stayed in this special barrier surrounding the 2nd Island, Carmine Lake could move and act freely within the boundaries. She mentioned something about the island being an archive of models of the primal world, so it could mix together the mind and body, but Nephren didn’t really understand, and Carmine Lake never explained in more detail. Nephren wished she had a book.

“Kaiya,” she said to the young Ayrantrobos lady, Ebon Candle’s servant.

“Yes, Miss Nephren?”

“What’s for dinner tonight?”

“I haven’t decided yet, but, since the fruits from the summer garden have been good, I’m thinking of making something with those.”

“Okay, I’ll help you out later,” Nephren said, then started to leave the room.

“Where are you going?”

“To Willem.”


The corpse of Willem Kumesh had been carried to the 2nd Floating Island and stored in a deep, secluded place. Ebon Candle suggested that they place him in ice again, but Elq and Nephren rejected that idea. Instead, they placed him on a decoratively and neatly arranged bed, where he now lay dead, almost as if simply in a peaceful sleep.

“… are you cold?”

Nephren touched Willem’s hand. Cold.

“Are you lonely?”

She touched his cheek. Cold as well.

She wanted to put a blanket over him, but, of course, doing so would have no meaning. She wanted to lie next to him and nap, like she often did back then, but, again, doing so no longer had any meaning.

“Ebo said it wouldn’t be that hard to revive him.” When she got there Nephren didn’t notice, but Elq stood in the doorway. “He’s the same as me. If Seniolis’ curse is loosened just a little, he’ll become not-a-corpse just a little and come back to life.”

“As a Beast, though, right?”

“Of course, but you wouldn’t mind, right? You’re a Beast too, after all.”

“It’s meaningless.” Nephren shook her head. “Hogging a broken Willem all for myself wouldn’t bring me any joy. I don’t…” She thought a little. “I don’t want to bring him unhappiness.”

“Hmph. You have bad taste too,” Elq said, unimpressed, and stepped inside the room. Then, cheerfully, she lied down next to Willem.

“What are you doing?” Nephren asked.

“Resting.”

“Why here?”

“No particular reason. I just feel sort of calm here… ow!”

Pulling her by the ear, Nephren dragged Elq off of the bed and continued straight out the room.

“No sleeping together.”

“Why not why not!? We’re both corpses, so it’s not a problem, right!?”

“That’s my assigned seat. I won’t give it up to any corpse or god.”

“This is tyranny!”


Inside a dream, he could see the orange of the twilight sky as the sun sank below the pitch dark horizon. He stood upon a small foothold which seemed to be made of tightly packed ashen hexagons. Besides that foothold, only an empty black nothingness lay below.

Only the half disappeared evening sun and the barely remaining foothold existed here. Nothing else. It was an aged world, on the verge of the end, on the verge of perishing.

In that place, there stood a young man. With nothing to do nor think about, he simply gazed blankly at the sinking sun.

Suddenly, the young man noticed a presence beside him: a small crystal lump lying on the ground. What is this? As he looked at it, the lump began to emit a clattering noise then split, swelled, bent, shrunk, and, in the end, took a shape very similar to that of a person.

Ah, I see.

This is the Beast inside of me, the young man realized. It was none other than the half of his being which awoke after he swallowed the fragments of the Shiantor. How many hundreds or thousands of years he didn’t know, but he must have been neighbors with this thing for as long as human history. However, they never knew each other before. They never even noticed each other’s existence.

“Hey, you,” he called out, but it didn’t budge. “Nice to meet you… that sounds kinda weird. Since we’ve been together this whole time and all.” Still no response. The Beast simply stood still, not looking at anywhere in particular. “Sorry for always ignoring you. You’re something like a victim too, huh.”

As before, still no response. Instead—

“—Yo.”

Hearing a familiar voice, he turned around. There, illuminated by the fading scarlet of the sky, he found the ambiguously aged, nostalgic face of a man.

“Good-for-nothing master.”

“Looks like you’ve been through a lot. Have any regrets?”

“So many I can’t count.”

“Glad to hear it.” Taking a seat next to Willem, Nils chuckled. “That’s proof you led a fulfilling life until the very end.”

Willem didn’t think it was anything to laugh about.

“I finally understand. These guys just wanted to go home,” he said as he looked at the crystal lump beside him.

“Hm?”’

“They just wanted to reclaim that ashen sea. The Visitors stole it. Moreover, they stole it because they longed for home themselves. As a result of that clash of homesicknesses, the land fell into ruin, and those who lost their home were driven up to Regul Aire. Everyone just wanted to return home. Just wanted to reclaim.”

The movements of the sun shook Nils’ shadow ever so slightly.

“There’s no need for evil to destroy the world. It always begins with a small wish that no one would ever find fault with. Such a tiny thing leads so simply to the end.”

“You’re right. This world is already done for,” Nils said as he scratched his head. “It’s almost time for me to get going as well. I can only stop in a world and use my power as a Visitor six times, and I used the last one to seal your memories. Now I need to look for a new world and start another journey.”

“… so you were a Visitor, huh.”

It should have been a shocking fact, but Willem wasn’t particularly surprised, perhaps because of his mind’s extreme exhaustion, or perhaps because, from the start, he realized that no matter what this man’s true identity was it wouldn’t be the least bit surprising.

“Want to tag along?”
“Huh?”

“This world is already coming to a close. You are dead, and there’s nothing you can do. So how about going to a new realm with me? If all turns out well, you might be able to life an easier life. At the very least, you’ll be able to life a more meaningful life than just being dead for an eternity here.”

“Ah…” Willem thought for a bit. “So in other words, you’re telling me to become a Visitor too?”

Nils nodded bitterly.

“That sounds fun.”

“I think you could be fine no matter where you went.”

“Maybe.”

It was tough losing home. Painful. But he was able to stand back up. He was able to think of a new place as home. That experience and those memories had now become precious assets to him.

“In the end, I couldn’t do a single thing for you or this world. So this is the last thing I can do for you as a good-for-nothing master,” Nils said, gesturing to the crystal lump with his eyes. “Right now, you guys are just barely separated. I can leave the Beast here and bring just you along.”

“Ahh… that’s what you were talking about, huh,” Willem said as he scratched his head. “Sorry, but, I can’t go.”

“I see.” Nils nodded.

“Losing my home, losing my place to return to, it’s been painful and miserable. But still. It’s always possible to find somewhere new. Anyone can.”

Those valiant people who call Regul Aire home were once residents of the land. How much blood was shed before they were able to accept their new home?

“But it doesn’t go well if you try to rush things. It takes time,” Willem continued. “Standing back up after the pain of loss. Meeting someone new. Getting used to a new place. They all failed at those. The Visitors, and the Beasts too. They tried to reclaim their homeland all in one go, so they chose the wrong method.

Well, at first I couldn’t realize either. But, if you try raising your head and actually looking around you, sometimes, right beside you, there’ll be someone to teach you.”

Willem closed his eyes. In his case, who stood right beside him? Grick, Naigrat, Nephren, … Kutori. They taught him so much it almost seemed wasteful. They saved him, who had been thrown out even farther past the end of the world.

“I want to be by this guy’s side.”

“You’re saying you want to talk with it? That’s impossible. Your mental structures and modes of life are different, you know?”

“I know. I’m not dreaming that big.” In a friendly gesture, Willem wrapped his arm around the crystal lump’s shoulder (?). “These guys can’t see anything except the world of their home. Only what they’ve lost is in their field of view. That’s why they can’t accept Regul Aire, and why they’re so desperate to demolish us.

It’s frustrating, isn’t it? That’s why I want to do something for them. Putting aside the past, something strange is beside me now. I want to help them think that.”

“Are you stupid?”

“I’ve been starting to suspect that myself lately.”

The two of them laughed together one last time.

“You really are a busy guy, worrying about an ended world even after you’re dead.”

“Well, it seems that’s all I can do, seeing as I could never become anyone.”

“… ah—” As he began to say something, Nil’s silhouette suddenly began to blur. “That’s fine too, isn’t it? It’s like you.”

“I’ve been started to suspect that myself lately as well.”

With that, their conversation came to a halt.

Sitting side by side, the two of them gazed blankly at the evening sun.

Suddenly snapping out of his trance and looking to his side, Willem saw that no signs of Nils were anywhere to be seen.

He was now all alone with the crystal lump, the fragment of a Beast’s delusional convictions, in this ending world.

“… well, it looks like we’re going to be together for a while.”

Willem lied down. Enough space remained on the foothold for that. Above, there was nothing, not even the night sky.

“Oh yeah, it’ll be inconvenient if you don’t have a name. Should I give you a nice one?” he said leisurely, then shut his eyes.


—A short while after.

“Hey! Wait, Eudea!”

“Oh, close one!”

Two girls sprinted down the hallways of a broken down house. The floor seemed like it could collapse at any moment, but, both of them having grown used to that, the two girls ran at full speed, skillfully dodging the particularly dangerous looking spots.

“Tonight’s dinner is a celebration for our seniors coming home, so you can’t snack beforehand. I told you that, right!?”

“Well, it just smelled so delicious. Almita, your cooking really is good! I’m sure our big sisters will be very pleased, mhm. Of course I’m very pleased too.”

“Aah you really are annoying! Let me spank you once!”

“Nope!”

The building shook with their rapid footsteps.

“Both of you, be quiet.”

“What, are those two at it again?”

“Hey hey, let’s make a bet. Who do you think will win today?”

“Ooh, good idea. I bet tonight’s dessert on Eudea getting away.”

“Okay, then I’ll be the opposite… Tazeka, you want to join too?”

“Hm? Ah… then I’ll bet on Kana. Also tonight’s dessert.”

“Eh, why? This is about Eudea and Almita.”

“Yeah, I can see that.”

Poking their heads out of windows here and there, the girls watched the pair’s escape drama.


“—Today’s lively as always, huh.”

Elsewhere within the same house, in the reference room, a blonde haired lady sitting in a wheelchair laughed cheerfully.

“It kicks up dust, so I’d wish they wouldn’t run around so violently. The big cleaning we just did is going to waste.” While flipping through a bundle of documents, a pink haired lady laughed back.

“That’s the fate of this run down lodge. I think it could really use a nice renovation sometime soon.”

“That’s true.”

The pink haired lady, Naigrat, put a finger to her cheek and tilted her head. It is often said that the true age of a Troll rarely reveals itself on the outside. As if to prove that stereotype, Naigrat’s appearance had hardly changed since those times.

“Memories are engraved all over the place, so whenever I think about hiring workers, I stop at the last minute. Do you remember the notches on the cafeteria wall? From when Noft and Lantolq used to compare heights.”

“Ah, when they made marks too often and we couldn’t tell which marks belonged to who anymore.” The blonde haired lady smiled with a nostalgic look in her eyes. “Speaking of them, does it look like they’ll be able to come home this year?”

“Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it’ll happen. Their current job is pretty far away.”

“Ah, that’s too bad.”

A lot happened. For example, the rules restricting the fairies’ freedom were loosened, some with conditions attached. As a result, a few fully grown fairies were now living outside the fairy warehouse.

Lantolq held an unofficial position at the Orlandri Trading Company managing any affairs related to the fairy warehouse and Dug Weapons. On the other hand, Noft acted as a sort of part time soldier for the Winged Guard, accompanying salvager voyages to the land to ensure their safety. Both were working hard far, far away from the 68th Floating Island. They couldn’t be called home so simply.

“… oh yeah, how about Collon and the others? Are they back yet?”

“Eh? No, not yet. It should be sometime in the evening.”

“Oh, well then it must have been unrelated. A little while ago, I thought I saw a non-civilian looking airship land in the harbor district.”

“A little while ago? That’s strange, I haven’t heard anything about it.” Naigrat tilted her head again.

Just then, a soft knock sounded at the door, and a girl peeked her face in. “Excuse me, Naigrat and Aiseia. Have you seen Riel?”

The two women looked at each other.

“No. Why?”

“I can’t seem to find her anywhere. If she went off to play in the forest again that’s dangerous, so I got a little worried.”

A rather thick forest surrounded the fairy warehouse, complete with pools of water in hard to see places. For the inexperienced or young children, it could be pretty risky terrain.

“Oh no! I need to go find her!” Thrusting away the documents in her hand, Naigrat immediately stood up.

“I don’t think we need to worry that much. Aren’t you being a little overprotective?” Aiseia commented.

“Being overprotective is the special privilege of a guardian!” Naigrat said with almost a shout, then dashed out of the reference room.

“Umm… what should I do?” The young girl left behind said with a confused look.

“I don’t think you need to worry.” Aiseia shrugged.


“Kana! What are you doing?”

“Hehe. Taking advantage of this delicious situation.”

“W-Wait a second! Wait there to be spanked!”

“Ah… I guess Tazeka wins the bet.”

“Hmm, I never thought I’d actually be right.”

“Waaait!”


“… the place really is lively, huh.” Aiseia, left all alone in the reference room, smiled with a tinge of melancholy.

Still seated in her wheelchair, she reached out and touched the glass pane of the window. Once, long ago, he and she had been there, beyond that window, that young man and young girl who dashed restlessly through that short-lived time of the end.

“A lot’s happened, but I’m doing pretty well.” They were no longer here, so Aiseia had no choice but to voice her report in the vague direction of the blue sea above. “What about you guys? Where are you? What are you doing?”

However, the sky, ever so high and infinitely vast, only sucked up her words, returning no answer.


A girl fell out of the sky. Judging from her figure, she was probably a little younger than ten. She must have taken a wrong step while walking on a tree branch, for she was currently plummeting downwards head first. At that rate, she would no doubt have a violent collision with the hard ground, leaving a scene unfit for a peaceful spring afternoon.

“Uh oh.”

The young man stretched out his hands and tried to catch the girl. However, right as he did so his feet slipped, causing him to completely lose balance and fall over with a crash. As a result,

“Ahggh!?”

He ended up stuck under the girl’s body and let out a shriek similar to a crushed frog’s.

“… ouch.”

“S-Sorry!!” After a few second’s delay, the girl, seeming to have grasped the situation, jumped away in a panic. “A-Are you hurt!? Are you alive!? Are any organs crushed!?”

“Ah—I’m fine. I’m tougher than I look.” Wiping the dirt off his clothes, the young man stood up. “But I did get pretty filthy. Are you oka—”

He looked at the young girl. She had blue hair the color of a clear sky and eyes with the deep color of the calm ocean surface. He felt like he had seen her before.

“—Hm?” The two of them locked eyes and froze. “Have I met you somewhere?”

“N-No? I don’t think so… probably…” The girl tilted her head. “I’ve never left this island, and you’re not from around here, are you?”

“Ah—well, it’s been a while,” he answered vaguely.

“Since you’re walking on this path, I assume you have some business with our warehouse?”

“Yeah.”

“Well then, you’re our guest. Follow me, I’ll be your guide.” The girl whirled around and started walking off with a mature step.

The young man gazed blankly at her back.

“What’s wrong?”

“Ah… it’s nothing.” Scratching his head, the man started walking after her.

“Riel!” A voice sounded from the direction in which they were headed. It drew closer. “Riel… ah! There you are!” A tall woman came jogging over. “Don’t make me worry like that. How many times do I need to tell you that you can’t go into the forest alo…”

“Sorry, but, ah, there was a strange animal, well, it got away, but I chased it all the way up that tree, and…”

The girl’s explanation, ambiguous as to whether it was an excuse or a brag, cut off midway. The woman wasn’t looking at her.

“No… way,” the woman murmured with a quivering voice, both hands covering her mouth. “No… that can’t be…”

“Sorry. I’ve been away for a pretty long while.”

“Eh? Eh? Eh?” The girl, unable to comprehend the situation, rapidly looked back and forth between the young man and the woman.

However, the two didn’t explain anything, instead simply exchanging gazes, as if some mutual understanding had passed between them and only them.

“I’m home,” the man said.

The woman’s eyes opened wide, blinked, then began to fill with tears. Her expression turned into a jumbled mixture of crying and joy. Then, with a trembling voice and many pauses, she managed to reply,

“Welcome… back!”

  1. Well, this is the end. I somehow made it. Thank you to all readers, especially the ones who’ve been here since the beginning and had to put up with multiple extended breaks.

    As for my future plans, I will NOT be translating anything anytime soon, the main reason being that I simply do not have the time nor will anymore. To me, Shuumatsu was always about Willem’s past and the history of the Emnetwyte, so volume 4 was by far my favorite. This is also probably part of the reason why I could never get into sukamoka. To be honest, I have not been keeping up with it.

    This means that I encourage any interested translators to pick up sukamoka or EX.

    The pdf/epub for volume 5 should be up soon.

And she is on the cover of next season novel volume 4. And if we look at anime, then those who find her could be two out of four younger ones. The one with purple hair could be grown Lakesh.

      • Forgot to mention that this Shiantor used to be Almaria, Willem’s so called daughter. So there must been some deep preserved connection between them, even after Almaria turning like this. Also Willem is still actually using the language/communication amulet, what helps probably communicating between them. How that talisman works is explained in volume 4.

I was really interested after watching the anime, which I loved, and finding an almost complete (at the time – you were just wrapping up volume 4 I think when I found this site) and ongoing fan translation was a dream come true.

  5. Thank you. It has been an interesting ride, the story at times being unexpected in its highs and in its lows.

    My guess is that Willem somehow eventually managed to make contact with the Shiantor, and together they were able to loosen the curse that kept him (them?) dead, thus turning him into an entity rather like Elq. I wonder if, with Willem’s help, Nephren would be able to speak with and calm her own half of the Shiantor?

    I am a little surprised that Nephren did not return with him, as I cannot see her staying on Island 2 if he has left it. For that matter, I’m a little surprised Elq did not come with him, but I suppose meeting the faeries would always be hard for her. Perhaps that is also why Nephren did not come with him…. For that matter, given their natures, aren’t Willem, Elq, and Nephren effectively immortal? Even if he spends a lifetime at the Warehouse, they may view it as only a brief vacation before he returns to their side.

    With this story done, I guess the next series with this type of feel to end will be Kamigoroshi, considering there is only a volume remaining. But RL has kept its TL from working on it for over half a year, so that ending may be a while off yet.

    Thank you again.

    • It’s harder to Shiantor to take control of Nephren, she is not purely human like Willem. So as long she don’t use one of her eyes and stay focused, it should be ok. And she did not need her memory sealed also.

      • True. But I was thinking more along the lines of controlled at-will use of the Shiantor’s abilities. If nothing else, it would make it much easier to protect the Faeries from the next batch of fools who think to try to take control of them. And two using such power would certainly be better than one.

        If Willem managed to get enough of an understanding with the Shiantor that it helped him loosen the death curse upon him, then I would think they are acting more like partners that happen to share a body than as warden and prisoner. Nephren could perhaps end up in a similar situation as that if Willem helped her make contact and come to an understanding with her half of the Shiantor. Or maybe he already did before he left for the Warehouse.

  6. It was a roller coaster emotion of ride from the start till the end. To be frank, Fgi-san translation is one of the most smoothest reading available. Easy words, simple and easy to imagine writing. Thank you a bunch XD.

    Thanks as always Fgi-san. Whenever u have the URGE to translate more, I shall read it as I subscribed to your blog already~

  7. Typical Wilhem.
    Taht did took some time, but he did manage to find common ground with the Shiantor I guess. That was a true rollercoaster but I’m glad the end was this good.

  8. Thank you so much Fgilan!!! What a wonderful and feels heavy ride!!

    That Ithea part alone left me a huge void in my heart. Damn it why it’s so sad T_T. And Willem easily transcended to become my all time favorite character in this medium, great protagonist. great father and lastly, a great man.

  10. Really thanks a lot for your hard work, you gave us a wonderful novel.

    About the closure itself, what can I say?
    The wonderful romance anyhow is broken, Willem came back just magickally, Kutori could’ve reincarnated in the blue hairs fairy.

    Honestly too much thin for getting really involved.
    I’m glad for Willem, Niagrat, Alseia and the few survivors, but I’m not going to thank the author for this jumbled closure.

    But again, a dee bow to our outstanding translator.
    Best luck for your future adventures 😉

  11. ´Why was Aiseisa in wheelchair? Did she get injury from fighting Willem in the city? Also did Willem lost his memory, I mean he was not able to recall Kutori, who Riel resembled?

    Can someone explain what that means “This is the Beast inside of me, the young man realized. It was none other than the half of his being which awoke after he swallowed the fragments of the Shiantor. How many hundreds or thousands of years he didn’t know, but he must have been neighbors with this thing for as long as human history” ?

    • EDIT: How are those older fairies still alive, it was said that if fairies even live older than 19/20 their chance of soul degradation is increased and so fairies don’t live very long, even if they live trough battles. Riel is about 9 years, we don’t know how fairies appear, i mean if they born then how old they look like. So Aiseia should be over 20 years and Lantolq should be even older and they still alive.

      • We don’t know why Aiseia is in a wheelchair, perhaps this is explained in the sequel “Sukamuka”

        Willem did not lose his memories, note that he clearly remembers Naigrat and the warehouse

        Fairies didn’t live long because they spent their lives fighting. Since they no longer have to fight and no longer need to expend Venom, their lifespans increase…at least that’s what I think

        The “other half” was the beast. Humans are essentially changed beasts, which is why they changed back into beasts

      • Interesting is that, as you said Willem has his memories, he still are not able to Remember Kutori. He doesn’t know where he have met Riel, who is very similar to her.

      • Aiseia had a medical date with doctor kikurope before the battle with willem, where he said her that she ignites once more venom, she could died, so, I think she didn’t die, but she no longer can ignite venom neither used her legs.

  13. Can’t thank you enough for going through the effort of translating this series. It would have been quite a waste not being able to read this.

    I still have some story questions, though I’ve forgotten most of them by now.

    If I remember correctly, a majoy factor why the plan to save humanity, by extracting elqs soul and shattering it into equal pieces, failed, was because willhelm’s master was nowhere to be found. Do we ever learn why he was misssing though he had planned all of that?

    Also was there a reason that kutori’s wasn’t really a fairy anymore at some point? (which kinda got definitive proof when her Body remained after dying)

  16. Following up on the immensely jerk previous chapter this one really adds insult to injury. You see the traditional japanese formula for proposing to a girl is: “Will you lay in the same grave [as me]?” Thus the chapter title would logically refer to Willem laid to rest alongside his fiancee Chtholly. Not that W. deserves such honour as he abandoned her, but it was her wish [I just want to be with you forever…] so it should be granted.

    Yet we don’t even know what happened to her remains eventually, the author really just doesn’t care. [Remember that Nyghllato refused to eat her corpse.] Chtholly has been discarded like used paper tissue and substituted with a loli named Riel who is a different girl as we will learn later on.]

    You readers are assisting that treatment by salivating over the low quality, incoherent, juvenile action fantasy trainwreck delivered in vol 4-5. If you ever meet your Chtholly in real life, would you let her down in crisis and go for a harem? What effect does this kind of amorality has on the japanese youth? Think about that to grow into a man as in officer and gentleman, which Willem and the fantasy arc author were not. [I think the love story thread in SukaSuka vol. 1-3 was ghostwritten.]

  17. Okay; was following the whole series from book one. This epilogue left me soooo confused.

    Is there someone out there to pop a brief explaination?

    Like

    • You mean this chapter, right? A lot is left to the reader’s imagination (possibly going to be filled up in the sequel)

      1) The epilogue ended in a time-skip where all the adult fairies have grown old, the young fairies grown up, and new fairies arrived at the warehouse

      2) Apparently all the adult fairies seems to be still alive. This might be because of a combination of reasons: one, the lack of timeres means there’s less need for fairies to fight; and two, bringing Elq back somehow changed the fate of the fairies (as it was her wish to become a Brave that was indirectly leading fairies to tragic deaths)

      3) Riel is a new fairy added to the warehouse who looks exactly like a younger version of Ctholly. Although I’ve heard that in the sequel Elq had stressed that Riel is a different person from Ctholly, whether she really is the reincarnation of Ctholly is still up for debate. It was heavily implied that fairies can reincarnate over and over again, but the complexities involved in Ctholly’s death makes it difficult to predict whether it’s even possible for her to come back as she was.

      4) The young man who said “I’m home” is most likely Willem, and the one who said “welcome back” is Naigrat. Given the information in this chapter, we can most likely assume Willem has one way or another suppressed the Beast instincts residing within him and has been revived, likely by one of the three Poteau.

  18. Well. Thank you for your hard work and undying resolve Fgilan-sama! When i watched the anime first i knew i wanted the read the LN then i was horrified that no one translated to english, after a little search i found your website and was saved. Whenever a new chapter came out my day immediately got better. Your translation was easy to understand yet very precise and coherent (not like this comment). If i wanted to say anything in this ramble is this. Take your break and your cake good luck in college and in life general! If you ever want to translate anything it doesn’t matter what kind of story i will look forward to it sir. It will be my pleasure to be your loyal reader!

    So, theres a Time Skip between chapter 4 & chapter 5 and after seeing some of SukaMoka novel illustrations, I assume that the SukaMoka story take place during that Time Skip and that Man at the end is either the new white haired MC or Wilhelm..hope someone will translate the EX & SukaMoka…

    In the 5th volume of SukaSuka there is a timeskip of 5 years between the events of ch4 and those of ch 5.

    SukaMoka’s focus is towards Tiat and her group,with the 4th volume the plot thickens,as the series antagonist is revealed and the focus kinda sort of goes back on Willem.

    Riel would be 10ish..

    Sorry for being vague,trying not to spoil SukaMoka,will say this though- Riel is not Chtholly.

    This was such a good story, the feels were so strong throughout. I also think that it ended in a pretty good way making it an all around great series.
    Easily one of my top 5 favorite novels.
