Extra chapter thanks to Danilo, Raymond and Charles S jr.! 🙂 Enjoy!
(187) The strength to face tomorrow
That night, the fishermen and former pirates Hallock and the gang gathered and started a party in the name of celebration. It wasn’t like we had actually won but the fishermen had already given up on securing a fishing ground this year so it was no longer just about winning.
Furthermore, since it was resolved without spending the money that would otherwise be spent on paying the pirates, it was converted into paying for the alcohol for everyone to pass around.
I thought to myself that it was lucky that Haru wasn’t around. Knowing her, she would drop a bombshell remark due to the stench of alcohol at the place and faint.
Incidentally, Carol was diligently going around pouring alcohol and gathering information. She’s seriously a great girl.
I was able to weather through today without having to use the Clean spell to clear any accidents but I swore to myself to keep water intake in moderation and use the restroom on the ship before tomorrow’s negotiation.
“Nevertheless, the faces on those guys when Sensei released that magic — it was as if they had wet themselves.”
My heart skipped a beat when Hallock said that with a laugh.
He wasn’t talking about me. No no, I didn’t leak. Yeah, I’m fine.
I slowly drank the beer that was poured for me by those around me. The beer wasn’t that good but the atmosphere wasn’t bad.
“By the way, Sensei, are you not accustomed to the sea despite owning a ship?”
“Hn? Yeah. I’ve actually only arrived at the sea not long ago.”
“Then perhaps you aren’t aware of this kind of dishes.”
Hallock said as he brought out — a plate of raw fish with beautiful shining white flesh.
“Is that Sashimi?”
“You know about it? Yes, it’s a dish introduced by the people who were transported from the other world — It’s actually supposed to be eaten with a sauce called shoyu though.”
“There’s soy sauce too? Rather, at this rate, I’ll be fine with even fish sauce.”
“Sorry, I don’t have it. I don’t have shoyu — so I’ll use ponsu.”
They have ponzu sauce?
Eh? But I somewhat recall that shoyu is the base ingredient for ponzu sauce.
“No, not ponzu sauce but ponsu.”
Hallock brought out a slightly pale yellow liquid.
“Can I try a bit?”
“Yes, of course.”
Hallock poured some ponsu into a small saucer and passed it to me together with the plate of sashimi.
I added a pinch of that sauce on the white fish and brought it to my mouth.
“Hn — sour … fruit juice huh.”
“Yes, it’s the juice of the citrus fruit from the southern country so it’s too sour to consume on its own but it goes well with raw fish.”
” … I see, I remember now.”
Ponsu was the prototype seasoning for ponzu sauce.
I heard my senior in my family restaurant part-time job speak about it before. It was pointed out to me that what we normally call ponzu sauce was actually supposed to be called shoyu ponzu sauce and that it was just orange juice in the past.
I always only saw oranges as new year decorations and never knew that they were the raw ingredients for ponzu sauce.
“Well well, this somewhat resembles carpaccio, it’s delicious.”
I said with a wry smile but I kept to myself that I still missed shoyu after all.
I had no way of knowing at that time.
The blazing ball of flame that I sent into the sky — many more people saw it than just the pirates at the scene.
In the former pirate hideout near Port Kobe.
Norn who was preparing for camp looked like she was extremely restless.
During the day, Miri’s condition was weird after she saw the enormous fireball that suddenly appeared in the western sky.
After Miri, Norn and Kannon arrived at Port Ithaca, they found that the connecting ship to Port Kobe would stop after one last round trip.
After that, Miri’s choice of action was swift and Norn could not understand it.
Miri suddenly summoned Fenrir outside the town and decisively chose that they would ride on its back and cross the mountain.
Normally it would have taken about a week to cross on foot and it was a path that only traveling monks could traverse but by relying on Fenrir’s mobility, they crossed the distance in just half a day.
Then, what happened immediately after that was the annihilation of the pirates around Port Kobe.
“Immediately stop this pirate business this instant.”
The pirate Miri said those words to immediately attacked her but the tentacles from Miri’s Darkness Magic coiled around the pirates and splendidly tossed them into the sea while Fenrir dog-paddled and attacked the pirate vessels floating offshore.
It returned after the ships turned into wood chips.
The pirates didn’t feel anger or hatred seeing their ships sent to Davy Jones’ locker, they only felt fear.
They later heard that the pirates decided to stop their pirating business and took the last connecting ship to Port Ithaca.
Miri had 2 reasons for destroying the pirate ships.
The first was to prevent Miri’s brother, Ichinojo, from getting attacked by pirates when he took the boat to Port Kobe.
And the other reason was to keep Haurvatat and Malina at Port Ithaca.
As mentioned earlier, it was currently impossible to take the connecting ship from Port Ithaca to Port Kobe. Travelling on land and crossing the mountains would take too much time. The only remaining method left would be to utilize the pirates to cross.
In other words, they would have to go to the island near Port Ithaca where the pirates would have their meeting and ride the ship of the pirates from Port Kobe. However, now that the Port Kobe pirates were completely annihilated, Haurvatat and Malina no longer had any options left.
Norn asked her.
Why does Miri reject the reunion between Haurvatat and Ichinojo? And if she does not want them to reunite, why did she tell Haurvatat that Ichinojo would be at Port Kobe?
Although she couldn’t get an answer from Miri, she was even more nervous after hearing the report from Norn when they returned.
It seemed like there was a new pirate. That pirate was absurdly strong and was the messiah of their town.
And after seeing that huge fireball just now, Norn noticed that it was the work of that new pirate.
Tomorrow, the pirates would have another meeting.
(It’s no longer a situation where only the Port Kobe pirates will be annihilated … I shall annihilate the pirates from both Port Kobe and Port Ithaca.)
Miri deemed that it was none of her business if the fishing ground turned into a mess because of that.
The news that a new ship had reached the harbor had not reached her ears.
(I’ll clean everything up before Onii arrives.)
Miri made her decision and went to bed early in preparation for tomorrow.
Thanks for the chapter.
Oh please tell me that this isn’t the author trolling us… again?
I can lie, is that what you want?
even worse i can see it now little sister arrives to destroy pirates brother is in full suit of armor and unrecognizable shit goes down
Lol…Nice job Onii-san. Or should I say…whoops?
thank for the update
Are they finally gonna meet? Oh pls god tell me they will, this is getting ridiculous and idiotic if they dont
I know what you mean
They probably meet BUT they will not notice it!
Miryuu will keep her appearance hidden or maybe she looks different than she did on Earth so Ichinojo will not recognize his sister as he still believes her to be still living on Earth.
And Miryuu will not recognize her brother because he will wear that full body armor.
So they will most likely meet each other but at the same time also “miss” each other again.
Say isn’t the little sister a bit of a……..moron? She neglected information gathering and checking out if new ships arrive at the port (which was the first she should have done, if she wants to know when her brother arrives) , and she also doesn’t stop to think wether her brother will actually approve of what she did and methods
Fron what I understand she doesn’t really care about what he thinks? Remember when he was talking ro Norn while riding Fenrir. Another thing is that this os kinda part of the author choices to procastinate the meeting, it’s getting pretty dumb to be honest…
Yeah, the author is resorting to dumbing down his characters in order to force a plot. A common sign of bad writing you see by many authors.
How do you think she got defeated in the first place?
Fist off, her beloved brother didn’t bring their ship into the port. Its behind the waterfall with the other repaired pirate ship. So if they only checked for new ships in the open harbor, it would be easy to miss…(still a stupid plothole though)
Have a feeling the next pirate meeting is just going to be a massive clusterfuck. Ichinojo will know who everyone is, but everyone else will be in the dark because of the smelly armor concealing him.
You missed one important point:
Ichinojo did not enter the port town in the normal way but used a hidden bay known only to insiders to secretly get on land.
Therefore Miryuu cannot receive any news about a new ship arriving at the port because there has not arrived any ship there.
The only ones who know about Ichinojo are Ichinojo, Carol, Pionia and the fishermen with them.
And those fishermen are currently busy preteinding to be pirates to secure their parts of the fishing grounds.
So Miri cannot receive the news about her brother’s ship having already arrived there.
Its author’s logic which make the story become low tier grade!
he write contradictory thing within his own story where he told us Miri is genius but here said otherwise!
I am sick and tired of Miri’s actions.
let them meet already gdi
Thanks for the chapter.
Considering all that armor he is required to wear, and the fact that both he and Miri tend to use ranged attack magic, I expect they will exchange a few rounds of spells before they are near enough for him to realize it is Miri. Hopefully once he speaks aloud to her she will recognize his voice and stop attacking.
That requirement was as lame a plot device as I have ever seen.
Cripes the author spent a whole chapter to create a seriously bad reason for miscommunication when Miri and Ichinojo finally meet.
You will never know!
Ichinojo didn’t went to the normal port~
instead his ship is on the secret port of the pirates~
so technically “no ship arrived at the port”, so even if she is actually checking it, it would make no difference on the situation~
ex-demon lord vs a jobless guy
When you are waiting for your brother to arrive but never actually check if they have arrived.
Good job, demon lord.

Thx for the chapter
Whoever said that Miri won’t recognize him in the armor was probably right.
Buildup only works if the outcome isn’t so blatantly obvious.
Also, people don’t read these to find out about the history of fish sauce.
No offense to our translator, but I’m getting tired of the author’s shit.
Thanks for the chapter~Nya…
Thanks for the chapter~Nya… .
I predict MC will first fight Haru (armored like him) as she probably made a deal with the Ithaca pirates (though I am unsure why Miri thought wrecking the Kobe pirates would keep Haru/Malina from just making a deal with Ithaca pirates to go to Kobe instead?), and then it will be Miri after that.
Thanks for the chapter xd
After reading all the comments… pls, don’t be so stupid author san…
Esto se va a descontrolar !!!!!!!!!!
Vash the Stampede
Silly sister, your brother is now the Pirate King
fuck this shit, the author needs stops this shit of coincidences and let the miri meet the brother…
wow tseirp, how many chapter of this “filler” reaming?

1) Ichinojo: Ore va kaizokuoō naru!
2) Miri: I will be the king of little sisters!
(; Read the latest one piece manga if you don’t get the second reference.
i can’t wait for this arc to be over, it’s just gotten stupid.
Thanks for the treat.
Thanks for the chapter
wow. finally caught up.
so far it’s been an entertaining ride. Thanks for the good work Translator Priest Person.
this story has proven to be more entertaining than I had expected.
hopefully the yandere bro-con sister finally meets her brother. that should be a VERY funny moment when they finally recognize each other.
bro-con sister: “Why are you a pirate king?”
bro: “Why are you a demon king?”
bro-con sister: “I asked first, you answer.”
bro: “No, actually, more importantly, HOW did you get here? OMG! Did horses kill you too!!??”
and…it goes down hill from there into crying, shaking, a bit of tummy patting and some more crying. Then maybe some excellent japanese cuisine with a supper of all the characters hanging out in MY WORLD.
he ‘almost’ rivals Satou of Death March.
Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)
Thanks for the chapter.
God, you’re 1300 years old, stop acting like a kid lol
Someone wanna bet that the one noticing who is everyone is Haru, smelling their scent?
“I WILL MURDER MY BROTHER TO PROTECT MY BROTHER! Nobody stop me!”
