VS Thanatos 1

Episode 128: VS Thanatos 1

After that, Yuuto successfully climbed the wall and arrived at the deepest part of the cave.

Master, I can smell Luna deeper down this passage.

When they searched in the direction pointed by Spica, they arrived at an abrupt opening. Inside was an altar for some kind of ceremony.


As they went further in, they saw Luna hung on a cross.

……Yuuto-san……quickly……run away, please……

When he shouted out, Luna answered with a sorrowful expression. Even from afar, it was clear to him that Luna was weakened.

If that guy comes back……it'd be too late……

Even though Luna expended precious strength to warn them,  her expression morphed into despair to confirm the arrival of itbehind Yuuto.

Kukukuku. Huhahahahahahaha!

A weird laughter echoed suddenly in the cave.

Unique Ability
 Soul Creation
 Shadow Sewing

Soul Creation
 Rarity ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
(The skill places a soul in a vessel)

Shadow Sewing
 Rarity ☆☆☆☆☆☆
(The ability to enable high-speed movement through shadows.)

When they turned towards the voice, they were faced with a monstrous skeleton with a huge scythe in his hands.

(A…… rank 9 rarity!?)

Yuuto was amazed as it was the first time he was seeing a unique ability with a rank 9 rarity.

 Rarity ☆☆☆☆☆
(A skill that creates a beeping sound that only the skill holder can hear when they are in life threatening crisis. The volume of the sound rises according to the degree of the risk)

The volume of the Warning ringing in Yuuto's head was at maximum volume. However, he didn't need the warning to understand the hidden strength of the monster he was facing.

It was the correct option to keep the lass alive. I seemed to have caught a big fish.

Seeing Yuuto, Thanatos smiled happily.

I'll kill you and turn you into a ghoul. Your body is one in a hundred…… no one in a thousand!

The unique ability Soul Creation allowed the creation of ghouls from human corpses. The reason that ghouls had been kidnapping was to gather materials for new ghouls.

You……what are you……?

Kukuku. I am the undead king Thanatos! Begin the birth of the dark abyss……guhahahahaha!

Victory went to the one who made the first move. Thus, Yuuto hit Thanatos in the face with a Destruction Fist. Broken teeth flew out of Thanatos' mouth.

What kind of person are you! I…… never forgive a guy that hurts a beautiful girl that I like!

A single blow with all his might. The Destruction Fist enhanced punch caused Thanatos' body to go flying over 10 meters with a resounding smash. Immediately the cave wall he crashed into caved in with a roar.


However, even though he took a blow from Yuuto at full strength, Thanatos stood up.

You brat! I'll kill you! I'll definitely kill you!

Brandishing the huge scythe in his hand, the enraged Thanatos got ready to act. His magical power far exceeded Yuuto's imagination.

Sylphia. Take Spica and hide in a safe place.

He gave the two of them Transparency Fruit and Deodorant Fruit that he gathered from the Divine Tree. With those, they won't be attacked by ghouls when evacuating to a safe place.

……I understand.

Under Yuuto's orders, Sylphia grabbed Spica's hand and raced away. To Sylphia, it was vexing, but she couldn't help in this fight. From the single exchange, it was clear that the enemy was far beyond her capabilities.

Guhuhu……. Boy. You'll pay heavily for hitting me once……

Thanatos had met a worthy opponent he had been searching for, and while holding his sickle-and-chain, he smiled fearlessly.


  1. Damn.. so short >. < I want moar ^_^ ty for the chspter :)

  2. Thanks for the chapter XD

    Btw, if it makes translating easier, you know, the bracket quotes in Japanese are equivalent to western quotation marks, right?

    So the last 2 lines can be like

    "Guhuhu……. Boy. You'll pay heavily for hitting me once……"

    Thanatos had met 'a worthy opponent he had been searching for', and while holding his sickle-and-chain, he smiled fearlessly.

    Of course, last line could also be:
    Thanatos had met the worthy opponent he had been searching for, and while holding his sickle-and-chain, he smiled fearlessly.

    Just saying, if it could help the translations go a bit easier...

    That said, I am grateful that you are taking time outta your day to translate despite being so busy...

    1. Well, I use a software that has those preloaded to the function keys, so they are actually pretty easy to use.

    2. Thank you so much for coming back and doing this, I was going crazy thinking I might have to try translating this myself. Again Thank you!!!

  3. so short

    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    soul creation is placing an already formed soul into a body? Soul Placement? soul Possession? soul endowment?

  10. oooh!!! I can already see the possibilities of the soul placement ability!!! He could make sentient puppet girls (like in long live summons), sentient geological formations (gems from Steven universe), OHH or he could put part of his soul n an object to make a horcrux so he could live forever through reincarnation (like in "experimental log of a crazy lich" and harry potter)

  11. It's alive! Hallelujah! :D
