This chapter is a service to thank all of you for supporting me with this blog and this translation work :D. Enjoy the conclusion to the first epic battle in this novel and here’s hopping there’s more to come.

P.S. Omg I regret choosing this chapter to do as an extra cause it is one of the longest chapter excluding the prologue >.<‘


Chapter 018: Conclusion to the boss battle and negotiations with the Pope

Translator: Tseirp

I plunged my hand into the magic bag worn like a shoulder bag under my church robe and took out the holy silver bow and quiver.

“Prepare to meet your doom” I drew the bow.

『Buoooo』 Releasing what sounded like a cry, I stopped the menacing Wight by drawing the bow.

I shot an arrow towards the Wight who began to chant magic as if trying to escape from its numbed state.

Immediately I drew the next arrow and paused.

『Gyoguguooo』 The Wight screamed in anger.

Maybe it was infuriated because I interfered with its magic, or by the arrow that hit it’s robe, or maybe both but I felt it’s thirst for blood swell up.


“Just hurry up and chant your next magic.”
While spewing provocations, I recovered my magic power and stamina.

It was good that I endured Instructor Broad’s style of teaching. I’m really thankful so after I get my salary I’ll send him something.

I shot the second arrow while thinking about such a thing.


While remaining in a state of tension, after releasing the 13th arrow I decided to act on the intuition that I should begin moving at full force soon.

Katria-san said that magic cannot be used together with weapons because it is necessary to concentrate on an image when casting magic.

I was unclear whether the same phenomenon occurred in the undead but I am truly glad that it gave me a hint.


I believe that the Wight had reached its limit in hostility towards me and exuded a tremendous thirst for blood.

If it was a normal old man, I would not be surprising if it’s blood vessels burst. It was expressing a look of hatred of such an extent.

“To have visible blood vessels popping out of your forehead, you must be dreadfully angry. However when somebody has been angry for more than 15 minutes, without any new stimulant to spur the rage, he would be too tired to continue feeling angry. Ah~ah. I forgot you are a monster.”

Just like that I repeatedly provoked it while taking deep breaths, looking for a chance.


After running the simulation in my brain multiple times, I ran towards the Wight at full speed after I released the 17th arrow.

The Wight tried to avoid the arrow as if it would hate to dirty it’s robe, but I had closed in on it so it began to gather magic power instead using the cane in an attempt to cast magic. Without overlooking that, I shot the remaining 3 arrows towards the Wight, causing the accumulated magic power gathered in the cane to explode.

I extracted the sword I received from Instructor Broad from within the magic bag, poured every available magic power I had left into the sword, advanced the last remaining step between us and, slashed.


I slashed the Wight. It was a clean cut from the left shoulder to the right flank. (TL: If you watched any samurai period shows or know kendo then you can imagine how he slashed him and then continued on with the momentum to end up him facing his back to the Wight.)

However, a Wight is a high-ranking undead. It would shoot magic and steal the lives of naive people who turn their backs to it … or not.

“I definitely felt feedback from the cut. But the guy who made this place is a devil. Of course I know that at the very least it is not dead yet.”

I turned around, picked up the short spear and channelled magic power into it before running towards the Wight and throwing the spear with full force.

As I further pushed the short spear that penetrated it’s body, I rotated my body around and held the sword in my left hand with both hands and sent its head flying.

『Gugyaaaaa』 The flying head cried out and vanished like smoke.


What remained was a set of robes, cane and necklace, as well as a magic stone several times larger and denser compared to those left behind by undead until now.


“Alright~. Ouch that hurts. 【O Lord I offer my magical power to recover this person, Heal】”

With the boss now absent, I was wrapped by a pale light as usual when I chanted heal.

“Both games and the illusionary labyrinth in this other world work the same way huh.”

I cleaned my body using purification magic and also casted 「Recover」 just in case.

“With this I should be fine from curses and abnormal statuses. Well then …”

I used 「Middle Heal」 to treat my wounds and left my inflamed muscles and fatigue to naturally recover.

“It would be too pitiful if I showed how weak I am the next time I see Instructor Broad.”

I whipped my sluggish body to recover the magic stones scattered throughout the room, and purified the remaining robes, necklace and cane with purification magic just in case.


After I completely picked up everything, 『Gogogooooo』 Suddenly the earth tremored and a descending path appeared.

“EH?! There’s more? But I’ve had my fill already.” I stared at the stairs leading down towards the lower floor for a while.


“I’ll be back.” I ran towards the door and prayed. 『Gyiiii』 The door opened safely.

“I really panicked for a moment there because I do not have any magic tool to return nor did I memorise any magic to do so.”


“Well then what shall I do now. Four barrels of Object X, the sword I received from Broad-san, the bento box from oba-chan … there’s no way I’m going to leave these behind. That’s for sure. First, I’ll definitely take the three items I obtained from clearing the stage …”

The holy silver sword, spear, bow and quiver, I could fit everything into the magic bag except for one item.

“Wait, there’s no problem if I just wear the sword? Now that I have my peace of mind my stomach is empty so let’s have lunch.”

As usual I used 「Aura Coat」 and 「Purification」 on the bento and attacked it with gusto and also drank Object X. “Ah, I forgot to drink Object X before entering.”

Today was truly tiring. I went up the stairs and escaped from the Undead Labyrinth.


Upon exiting the labyrinth Katria-san was at the counter.

“Ah Katria-san good afternoon.”

“Ara, it is rare that you return at this time.”

“Yeah. Today I received some damages.”

“There are some days when you are not accustomed eh.”

“No~ it’s more of a feeling that my complacency was doused.”

“If that’s the case then might today’s yield be low?”

“No instead it might be greater than usual. Moreover today I would like to see the point conversion up until the end?”

“I see that you are curious. Well then place your rucksack here.”

『Don』 The Wight magic stone was situated right at the top of the rucksack.

“Wha … What is this?”

“Ah. There is the boss room at the tenth floor right? There were hordes of undead and furthermore magic could not be used. I was panicking like crazy. I somehow defeated them but then a Wight wearing a crown appeared, flew into the air and released magic towards me. I thought that I was going to die (game over).”

Incidentally, I thought of getting the cane and necklace appraised at the Adventurer’s Guild but I had no idea who the items belonged to in the first place so I decided to ask Katria-san.

” … Why did you do something so reckless?” Eh the usual warm fuzzy aura had disappeared?

“I didn’t intend to be reckless. I had no idea that thing was there, let alone that magic could not be used there. Nobody told me that.”

” … You didn’t receive any prior explanation?”

“Yeah. It is only the 11th day since I’ve been assigned here and it is the job of an exorcist to dive into the labyrinth.”

“That is … right. Erm do you have time after this?”

“Yeah. I’m feeling tired today so I planned to go back anyway.”

“If that’s the case I have somewhere I would like to go together with you. Do you mind accompanying me?”

“Yeah. Sure.”

“Well for the today’s points, it is 108,914P.” Eh?

“Erm, I feel that the digits are wrong?”

“Nope, it is correct.”

“Is that so.” So that was a bonus character after all.

“Oh yeah you said you had something you wanted to show me?”

“Yeah. I could not appraise it at that moment so I used purification on the equipment left behind by the Wight after it disappeared after I defeated it.”

As I spoke while taking back my card, immediately Katria-san’s face was right in front of me.

“Show it to me!!” I found that it was really scary to be face-to-face with a beauty.

“Th … then firstly it is this robe. Next is this necklace and lastly this cane.”

I slowly and carefully handed the items one by one to the counter.

” … Put those back into your bag and come with me immediately.”

The next instant, the usually inactive Katria jumped over the counter and flew towards the elevator.



I had not digested the situation and just chased after Katria-san.


“Oh, isn’t it Katria-san and Luciel-dono. Where are you two going in such a hurry?” Although Jordo-san directed a question towards us “Jordo-san we are currently busy. Excuse us.” A slightly blue-faced Jordo-san gave way to us.

“I’m sorry. I do not understand the current situation as well.” I only told him that and continued to chase after Katria-san.


I was seized with uneasiness as I walked. That’s because a little while ago I entered an elevator I thought to be forever unrelated to me which was off-limits to all except for related personal.

Passing by the area for priest knights and paladin, the elevator rose beyond the area for priests and for bishops above them and for cardinals above them. (TL: For now the church hierarchy is Cleric Priest Bishop Cardinal Archbishop Pope. Don’t know if priest knights and paladins are within the same hierarchy.)

This was absolutely something that I would not ride usually and definitely something that I should not ride.

During this time Katria-san didn’t say a single word. She just kept walking towards her destination, we once again rode down an elevator to stop in front of a room designated for the Pope which was above the Archbishop in rank.

Katria-san knocked “Your holiness, this is Katria. I wish for you to examine a matter of great urgency.”

“Permission granted. Enter.”


Although there were many maids present, they did not look at her, instead they directed puzzled and dull gazes at me.

Just like those that often appear in stories, something separated the audience, making it such that the Pope’s face was not visible from where I stood.


“Welcome Katria. I do not know the other person, what did you come for?” The owner of the voice sounded young, and was surprisingly a woman’s voice which sounded mysterious.

“Yes. This person is the new exorcist who inherited the responsibility of the exorcist the other day. He entered the labyrinth as per his responsibility and has defeated a tremendous number of undead.”

“Hoh. But I doubt that is all?”

“Yes. Today he fought with a Wight in the main room at the tenth floor. He was caught unaware and even had his magic sealed. And he splendidly brought back the equipment that the Wight had. Upon appraisal, I came here to make sure that it was not a false report.” This didn’t seemed like the usual Katria-san.


“Ok. I permit a direct answer. What is your name?”

“I am Luciel.”

“Well then Luciel. Take out the equipment you brought back.”

“Yes. However, since there was a possibility that there is a curse, I had activated purification magic. Please be understanding regarding that.”



I passed the three items to the maid that came to my side.

” … I thought it was impossible, but it really is. Isn’t this very robe Ozanario’s Robe that had went missing 12 years ago. And the Necklace of Spirits and Cane of Magic Disruption. You’ve done well to bring them back.”

Somehow aren’t they all great rare items?


“The Necklace of Spirits has the effect of halving all magical power consumed when using magic, the Cane of Magic Disruption not only spreads your own magic power and disturbs others from using magic as long as it is in a narrow space, it is a powerful cane that can trigger powerful magic by gathering the diffused magical power.”

What’s with that cheat weapon.

“I would like to have these items.”

It was probably absolutely impossible to refuse this. That’s because the person beside me won’t refuse. 『Bin Bin』 She was emanating such an aura. Okay then. From here on I’ll fire up my acting skills cultivated from business.

“I imagine you feel fond of the items. They even have such amazing capabilities. It is even to the extent of no matter how much it would cost to get them. I understand. I will yield.”

“Ok. Thanks for the trouble.”

“It is for you the Pope. However, I have an impolite wish. The truth is I am troubled by the small capacity of my magic bag during my explorations. Because of that, could I request for one that can hold many items?”

“Oh, do not fret about such a thing. Instead of a magic bag, I’ll give you a magic bag (backpack). The insides of the bag is a different space so it stops the progression of time. In addition you will know whatever is within the bag, and the capacity is about the size of this room. (TL: Basically I think his current magic bag is the type of sling bag you see all around, and the Pope is offering him a travelling backpack size bag. I will continue to use magic bag to refer to it.)

“Is it okay for me to have such a thing?” I mean this room is up to thirty tatami mat sized. … I understand. It was the Pope who made that bag. If not such a thing would not normally be given.

“It is fine. In fact this helps me even more. Also, if you encounter anything else when you dive into the labyrinth come here along with Katria. Take the reward. Katria will pass you the magic bag tomorrow. Take it. I am indebted to you. Well then that is all.”

Katria-san and I exited with our heads lowered.


“Luciel-kun you have guts.”

“Eh? Is that so? But I was considerably tense?”

“Really? Normally you wouldn’t be able to appear modest while requesting for compensation in front of the Pope.”

” … Was I too impudent?”

“Fufufu. I think you were fine. Because you were able to appropriately discern the situation that she was so satisfied that she even gave you the magic bag. Be at ease.” She told me so but I could not have a peace of mind.

We returned together to a place which I was familiar with and we bid farewell.

Thus at my very first boss fight I obtained a cheat item.

  3. Expect the pope toke the cheat items he has great luck and dame bad luck

  4. he was scammed. those 3 items are probably worth more than that bag

  5. Anonymous

    Is it just me or does it feel like the main character did a 180 personality wise?

  6. Thanks for the new chapter! Also, thank you for not leaving us on that cliffhanger. If you feel tired, I say it would be completely fair to delay the Sunday release to rest up.

    "Fufufu. I think you were fine. Because you were able to appropriately discern the situation that he was so satisfied that he even gave you the magic bag. Be at ease." She told me so but I could not have a peace of mind.

    Ain't the pope supposed to be a woman? or Am I making a mistake here?

  8. Thanks for the chapter! Certainly the items, cheat that they are, are worth more than what he requested for compensation, but Luciel doesn't think of himself as a hero, merely as a very hardworking person.

    Also, he should be following the adage that if you live in someone else's house, you should probably abide by their laws/requests.

    P.S. The pope is probably someone he knows ;)

  10. Great story and chapter. Really satisfied the craving. If possible, please release the next chapters soon.

  11. If you don't recall, hes a professional salesmen.

  12. Damn, all of those items were badass artifacts of doom.

    And he traded them for a freaken bag.

  13. Would you like to get PK over those artifacts?

  14. Instead of a magic bag, I'll give you a magic bag (backpack)

    Pack, purse, shackl, wouldn't one of these be a good replacement?

  15. thanks for the chapter /o/o/oo/

  16. Hopefully next time he won´t show them the items and instead keeps them.

  17. How about magic rucksack? :/ He definitely already knows the pope. Well, my suspicions anyways…
    Does he not get exp unless he recognizes as a real fight? Hm… i wonder how that will work.
    Thank you! What a treat!

  18. i really like the story but the mc is kind of worthless
    he got no personality at all
    he does everything everyone tells him
    do this do that give me this give me that
    he was a salesperson?bullshit
    he would had lost his job at the first day with this personality
    pope: you will marry this girl
    guildmaster: you are still to weak
    mc:(rank 9/10 fighter) thats true
    *mc gets a legendary item*
    random girl: my mother needs that to protect our village
    mc: here you can have it
    thats the mc

  19. Just like a real salesman in real life–oh wait.

  20. The backpack is cheat enough to count for that as well..

  21. My mistake there >.< hahah somehow im my mind the pope was a guy. Edited!

  22. Yea they would be but I would prefer to leave it as magic bag because it sounds more intuitive. And frankly I doubt I would be able to differentiate the 2 kanji for the different magic bags when they pop up separately >.< hahah and I'm pretty sure the author won't bring it up again so lets just think of it as the magic bag expanded.

  23. Yeah sadly he had to hand them over but I'm sure he has no choice. As soon as he uses them the whole Healer's guild will be out for his head hahaha

  24. Lol you're being to harsh on the mc. There is no way you can refuse a request from the Pope being the highest authority in the guild you pretty much live and work in. The fact that he went up to a king-like authority and asked for something in return is already praiseworthy XD.

    Well as for training like no tomorrow I think he has a slight trauma from dying which is understandable haha…so he has never left the safety of the cities and have no idea how strong the outside world is. Anyway don't worry the mc will go on an adventure sooner or later

  25. holy crap it took me a while to put this together(but still can be wrong) pop + GoD + MC that was transferred by one O.o

  26. Thanks~ ^^
    man~ when will he LV-up~ after his Increased Rate of Growth become lv X?
    then he need to drink that object X not in cups but barrels daily lol~ XD

  27. This comment has been removed by the author.

  28. I'm at a bit of a loss with the MC's thought process here. He thinks it's an illusionary training ground, but in this fight the Wight drops items of real value.

    Does one of the later chapters do a better job showing us what he thinks of all this?

    I can't remember too much/couldn't comprehend all his thoughts from the MTL, except maybe that he thinks that Katria and the Pope are both "acting". In that case, he didn't "recover" these magical items, but was simply "bringing them back" to the people who'd placed them there originally. In that case, a better item bag for simply playing a role isn't a bad deal, because he (wrongly) believes that he was never in real danger.

  29. You are quite correct. His thought process is that the labyrinth is a training ground for newbies and he thought that the Wight was the last boss so naturally it would give items. It's a different world so he doesn't question why it drops items when it is an illusion…he thinks it is an illusion but he feels pain when he gets hit anyway…

    Actually I'm not doing MTL its true-blue Japanese – English translation with only MTL for terms I don't understand. Most likely it's my lack of English knowledge to portray the true meaning properly?

    He never verbally asked anybody if the labyrinth is an illusion or not and neither have anybody told him so so it is actually just him misunderstanding everything. Nobody acted to deceive him. He did not actually intend to give/return to items back just that he had no idea if the items truly belonged to him (Cause he thinks the place is a training ground) and he can't be sure it's not dangerous etc but he had no choice but to give the items to the Pope when the Pope asked for them.

  30. I didn't mean you were doing MTL. Sorry if it read like that. Your English is perfectly fine.

    I MTLed myself using Yahoo Japan's translator up to chapter 80ish, which is why I'm unclear about Luciel's exact thoughts in regards to this dungeon. I'm not going to spoil anything though, outside of using spoiler tags on reddit.

    But looking at the translations so far, has Luciel really connected the cemetery turned labyrinth Lumina told him about in chapter 13 with the place he is right now?
    [Luciel]" … Are there any merits?"
    [Lumina]"There are. Anything you pick up in the dungeon belongs to you and you can sell the magic stones. Nobody would complain about you and nobody will snatch from you."
    He doesn't think this is the same place since he isn't gaining levels, and he just thinks that this is preliminary training for the real thing.

  31. Oh sorry I misunderstood you >.<

    From how I interpret the novel I think he is aware that the labyrinth he is in right now is the same one as the one Lumina told him about. Just that like I said he couldn't refuse giving up the items.

    If you MTL the titles you can see that he gets to know the truth about the dungeon in the next book.

  32. Thanks for all the chapters!

  33. This comment has been removed by the author.

  34. I'm betting that X is preventing his level up. Doing something like allowing all his base stats to grow and get boosts and when he finally stops drinking it he'll do a crazy power level in his first fight jumping straight to near god mode.

  35. I feel like it has been implied that he has to kill or defeat actual enemies to level up. The undead he fought were all illusions or something and before that he only trained which raised his stats without leveling him up.

  36. He wasn't scammed he was coerced. It's obvious that those items are more valuable but they're definitely not worth getting on the pope's bad side at this point. Now he has the bag and the pope has a positive opinion of him. This'll definitely make it harder for corrupt healers to mess with him.

  37. what makes you think that?

  38. aside from that bag, he also got the pope who practically rule over all the kingdom's healers in debt to him.

  39. He wasn't in any position to actually keep the items, not to mention he thinks he got them in an illusionary dungeons that's supposed to be used to assess you rather than a real dungeon.

  40. Wait so was it a real dungeon or are only the upper parts fake?

  41. It is a real dungeon

  42. but i think it be nice if he could have kept the necklace cause that the best cheat for him at the moment as most of his spell takes a lot of mana

  43. lmaooo… Ajay Paulose, you are just like the MC… naive xD…
    It's not an illusion… he thinks it is but is all REAL :)
    hahah… can't believe a reader also thought it was an illusion xD

  44. Thank you so much… So glad I found this gem of a novel…
    thank you for translating it :)

  45. Anonymous

    Really Ajay? Are you even really reading this series?

  46. sigh… im just amazed at how stupid this guy is.. why would you mention the items that dropped.. you can tell its pretty good since it dropped from a boss.. chances are theyll want to take it.. got dam i want to slap this fool

  47. Nah the MC is good and I freakin like him cause he is good change from usual Mc from other LN that are schemer, smartass and always took advantage having everything in their way.

    I really like his character and build, plus the title is invincible "SAINT". He wont be a saint if he only take advantage. He character is closely SAINT-like in my opinion. I guess your not used MCs to have all items and is op.

  48. Dude he can even appraise it plus it better to have POPE at your backing. Really connection is better than items cause you easily replace items. While connection you can get a whole lot of benefits.

  49. Thanks for the chapter! !

  50. Thanks for the chapter Tseirp!

  51. AnimeLoverSAO1

    Hmm I hope he doesn’t become their dog and gives everything he finds to them….perhaps giving these things now would give him a good status to the pope and others. I hope he keeps what even further below the dungeon…

  52. jeezy

    the pope robbed him, to a fucking retarded extent

  53. To those who say the mc is such an idiot for exchanging the drops for an inventory backpack, think again. The mc here is dispatched to the healers hq because he’s a nuisance to the settlement he’s been through. He cannot afford to make enemies. Plus that is from the orders of the POPE, i.e. the KING OF THE HEALERS GUILD. If I were such a pope and someone whom I don’t know were to possess such cheat items I would do the same. The mc is a salaryman and a healer. Not a pillager. It is only rational to decide that way. You are not giving away free nukes to those who find them.

    • Al

      Yet at the same time it was said he can have anything he finds and a backpack for cheat items is a rip off and honestly he should have tried to appraise them himself and if he does find something else amd shoes the girls or gives it to the his stupid

  54. Al

    What I thought he was a business man and anything he found was his yet he trades two or is it three cheat level gear for magic, backpack

    • wawa


      I’m sure it mentioned that spacial bags were around 3 gold.

      There is a limit to how naive an MC can be until I lose all will power to keep putting up with it.

  55. diettweaj

    i thought he was supposed to be able to keep any items he finds

  56. Weasalopes


    Yes, in theory he can keep all the items he finds.

    Let’s look at the realities here, OK?

    Now, much of this has already been said.

    He got shifted to the Capital because the high muckety mucks he pissed off felt that was the simplest method of getting him out of their hair, given that they couldn’t touch him due to the protection he had from then Adventurers Guild. So he _already_ has powerful enemies, powerful enough to get _The Pope’s_ signature on the orders transferring him.

    The Pope. She’s the head of the Healer’s Guild, the head of The Church, a person at least rivaling a King in power and authority (more so, when you consider that the Healers and Church are multi-national in scope). She’s interested in having these items, OK? Now, the impression we are given is that _everyone_ thinks he had balls the size of watermelons to ask for _anything_ in compensation, rather than just handing them over. That should give some idea as to how much people do _not_ want her as an enemy.

    The backpack he got in return? Just how common is an item that can contain the contents of that huge a room in this world, anyway? Not very common, OK? Like, The Pope made it, herself; that’s the amount of MP and ability it takes to create such a thing in this world. I don’t think I’m out of line on thinking that, although I didn’t go searching to see just what the sizes were for the bags he’d been considering, and how their storage capacity compared. Just take it as a given that it’s an exponential curve in regard to what is required to create such items compared to their carrying capacity; a backpack isn’t that much larger than the satchel he already had, but the compression factor is massively greater, plus, this one stops the passage of time for anything within it, which cannot be said of the one he had, or the one’s he had been considering obtaining.

    Why did The Pope want them? They are too damn powerful to leave running around. It’s that simple. It’s not that she plans on having anyone use them, it’s that she doesn’t want then falling into the hands of anyone who might become a threat. So, his keeping them just wasn’t going to happen. Just look at how threats to National Security leads to the curtailing of rights in our world, in this world the individuals, especially those outside of the top of the structure, don’t have all that many protections.

    He did very well, indeed.

  57. The pope, disguised behind a veil. Is it actually Lumina ? Her mom/sister mayhaps ?

    Also, at this point he realized it wasn’t an illusion, right ?
