The underplot thickens?

(197) Younger sister route 1

Translator: Tseirp


The plan was for Miri and me to explore Port Kobe with just the two of us … but.

“Miri, are you sure about this? After all, you are quite notorious in Port Kobe. At the very least, your name is well known.”

“It’ll be all right, Onii. Apparently, they still do not have an accurate depiction of my face so there will be no problems as long as we coerce the pirates into spreading the word that Miryuu and I are different people.”

“Coerce … fine. I’ll convince Hallock to do so when I go apologize to him … sheesh.”

As I sighed, Miri looked at me from below and asked.

“Onii, have you given up on living rationally?”

Miri’s question made me ponder.

Now that she mentioned it, I wonder when did it begin? That I stopped saying that I wanted to live rationally. Thinking back, in the past I would never consider acting like a pirate to attend a negotiation.

“ … Now that you mention it, I have temporarily given up on living rationally since coming to this world – – maybe because I’ve died once?”

“Even if you ask me that, I don’t have the answer.”

Miri laughed, finding it amusing.

“But, I think that it is quite like you to live like this. Let’s aim to become an unprecedented pair of siblings!”

“I can never become as unprecedented as you.”

When I said that,


Kanon cleared her throat.

I looked around and saw all the members staring at me and Miri.

“Swordsman Onii-san, don’t tell me you forgot about us?”

“Master, please enjoy yourself. I will be combing Fuyun’s fur.”

“Ichino-sama. If you plan to have a meal I would recommend the green-roofed café in the East Street? You can have the best view of Port Kobe if you get the terrace seat.”

“Yeah, it is apparent that Miri-chan really missed Onii-san after all. Pionia-san mentioned that she will be making an open-air bath for all of us after this so let’s enter the bath together later.”

Kanon, Haru, Carol, and Norn each gave their support for my stroll with Miri.

“Then, I shall get to work with the construction of the bath. Sheena No.3-san, may I enlist your aid?”

“Understood, Pionia-san.”

Pionia and Sheena hit it off without me noticing and they left to construct the open-air bath.

“Then, I’ll take everybody’s recommendations and have some family time for the first time in a long time.”

I looked downwards at Miri and nodded.


After exiting My World, I woke up the tied up pirates and told them that I won the match and the fishing grounds were to be split equally. As there wasn’t anybody to verify the conclusion and my armor was already taken off, I wondered what would happen if they claimed that the match was invalid but Miri directly cast Darkness Magic and made a portion of the cliff disappear before pointing her hand towards the pirates and raising her bloodthirst, making the pirates all prostrate on the ground and said “We are glad to have half. Please leave us with our lives.”, appealing for their lives in tears.

I untied Hallock and concluded the mediation between the pirates by having the fishing grounds split equally for the following ten years.

“Gosh, I was shocked to hear that the Demon Lord Miryuu was actually Sensei’s long-lost younger sister.”

Hallock spoke in jest but his legs were clearly trembling.

“I’m sorry for the mess my younger sister made.”

“No no, don’t mention it. You settled the fishing ground problem and besides, you guys gave the pirates on the other side a terrible experience. They said that they would give up on pirating and go on a journey to become monks.”

“Really? Maybe they would run into the former Port Kobe pirates one day.”

I gave a wry smile. I stopped myself from retorting the fact that the Demon Lord actually increased the number of Clergymen.

“Hey, Onii. I wonder how long has it been?”

“Hn? I have ridden on quite a number of boat rides recently.”

“I mean with just the two of us.”

“The two of us … I only recall that boat ride in the park?”

“Ah, that rental boathouse. It filed for bankruptcy last year.”

“You can’t really say the business failed, wasn’t the owner a retired grandfather who only opened the shop out of interest? The boat rental was just a hundred yen after all.”

When I said that, I felt a tear run down my cheek.

“Eh? Why – – I thought my lingering attachment to Earth was just Miri … I wonder why am I crying.”

“I understand Onii’s feelings. After all, we can no longer return to that side no matter how much we wish for it.”

“I’m aware of that. But why this timing?”

“It’s probably because Onii didn’t have the leeway to think about it a lot. Onii only thought of me and worried about how I was doing that you didn’t have the time to feel nostalgic for the other matters … Onii is gentle after all.”

Miri said and held my arm.

“But that is not a bad thing. After all, it isn’t a memory that you wish to forget. That’s why I feel that it is all right to reminisce about the past like this and cry. Don’t worry, I will always be by Onii’s side.”

Miri – – my younger sister’s tender voice roused my tears.




“So, why are we here?”

The first place Miri and I visited was Port Kobe’s Adventurers Guild.

“That’s because I wish to directly see Onii’s status.”

Miri said in a child-like manner.

To see the status of another person, the condition was that one has to obtain permission to be the other person’s party member. Even though I knew Miri’s job and level, I also did not know her status so I wanted to see hers as well.

“But only adventurers can use this facility to do that right? I’m not an adventurer you know?”

And there’s no way Miri with her job as a Demon Lord would be an adventurer either.

“Don’t worry, Miri may look like this but Miri is an adventurer.”

She showed me her Adventurers Guild Certificate.

“I will apply for Onii’s temporary transfer to my party. Of course, I will pay the processing fees so don’t worry.”

“Don’t be stupid. Even I have also earned quite a sum of money. I’ll pay the processing fee – -“

“Oo, so Onii has grown too. You have safely graduated from being jobless. Yup yup, I’m really glad. Furthermore, I look forward to finding out Onii’s job. I’ve never heard of a magic called My World after all.”

“ ……… ”

“Hmm? What’s wrong? Onii.”

“No, it’s nothing.”


Now that I think about it, I haven’t told Miri yet.

That I had not graduated from being jobless.



TL: Why do I have a feeling Miri isn’t being completely truthful … and it feels like Ichinojo’s memory has been manipulated? With the boat rental place memory and how Ichinojo isn’t asking any questions … Like how is it that she can remember Malina but he can’t, and why isn’t he asking about how she ended up as the demon lord? Interesting …

    Aft the anticipation of the sibling reuniun now waits the anticipation n reaction of miri finding out her brother is still jobless. Cant wait

    thanks for the chapter

  3. Ashton

    No um miri knows he’s jobless.. she’s totally screwing with him 😀

    • CosmicShade

      I don’t think that’s the case, all she knows is that He never went to go get a job change in that town, which while it may seem like the only conclusion that he is jobless, she also said in the past that when she was ruling as the Demon Lord, she forced a Jobless person to level up, I believe to level 60, so there should not be any reason to think he isn’t jobless.

      • altrighttroll

        Jobless… Hardly any meaning.
        He does stuff, has money – nobody gives a shit.

        This is Japanese economic brain washing at work – because of the state of the japanese economy, traditional economists demand more workers working more hours (because their goal is higher GDP) When the nation is already over worked.

        The notion of not having a “job” is the “ultimate shame” even if your wealthy or have skills that pay bills.

        In reality the “Jobless” title is more “boundless” “limitless” or “All the Jobs”

        Nothing shamefull… its odd that the author has been pushing this “shame” or “imbarassment” notion for so long, it must be the warped “work ethic” and “cult”ure of shame in Japan.

        • Halibut 9000

          I think the point is that it’s kind of absurd. I mean your first reaction is that it is absurd so I assume that is what the author intended.
          Ichino jumps through all these loops in his head to make himself feel bad about being “jobless” when he actually has a lot of jobs just without official titles.
          He’s a caravan guard for Carol.
          He’s a monster corpse supplier for Haru to trade.
          He’s a therapist for Malina.
          He’s a town guard (part-time hehe)
          He just hasn’t officially taken any of these titles for himself because he doesn’t only do one thing so he doesn’t have “a” job. The story shows that this is stupid.

  4. LoLiTraPKai(Newface)


  5. Meeraj

    Malina was sent to this world before him, so her existence was erased, thats why he cant remember. Miri can because she traveled to this world twice.

  6. Operatix

    Hahaha, can’t wait.
    Thatku san!”

  7. Mikan

    [You have safely graduated from being jobless. Yup yup, I’m really glad. Furthermore,]


    [TL: Why do I have a feeling Miri isn’t being completely truthful … and it feels like Ichinojo’s memory has been manipulated?]

    quote from ch 196

    “Okay. All traces of Malina … san has been erased from the world on that side. Her parent’s memories, her photos, her documents, everything. Of course, that would leave a sense of incongruity but nobody will notice it.”

    • Felipe

      It’s obvious that his memory have been manipulated, remember what that orc goddess said: he wasn’t supposed to have a sister, Miri probably encountered him at some point, fell in (sisterly) love with him and manipulated the memories of everyone to make them think they were siblings

      • Starcrier

        I’ll be honest if that’s the plan it was terrible. Instead of a meeting that would allow romantic feelings to appear a brother-sister relationship would make it very hard for Ichino to fall in love with Miri

  8. BhozzAoI

    I think the reason why Miri remember Malina is because she is the former demon lord so her memory didn’t got erase just like when Ichinojo died. Just remember that Miri said that everyone in Earth will forgot the person that has been transported so Ichinojo forgot about Malina and doesn’t have any memories of Malina

  9. Delmattia

    He doesn’t remember about Marina because she was summoned in this world, so all traces or memories of her disappeared from the people of the world (not from those from another one like Imouto-chan).

    I still believe, however that the real Miri is dead and that the Demon Lord Fafnaris (I don’t remember if this is how she was called), after being killed, took her body after Miri (original) said that she would give her everything if she loved and protected Ichinojo.

    … Or probably I’m just talking out of my ass and spouting bulls*it.,

    • The Butt Wizard

      At some point awhile back, it was said that Miri was originally Kaguya-hime (if I spelled that right). She reincarnated as a demon and eventually become the maou. But the timing for when the maou was killed (something like ten to twelve years ago) syncs up with her age perfectly.

      So, to me at least, it wouldn’t make sense that there had ever been another Miri to replace.

      But I may just be talking out of my ass too so don’t give it much credence.

  10. The Butt Wizard

    If you think about it, her memory of HIM should have been wiped too beyond just Malina’s, but it wasn’t. Somehow, she’s immune to the process of having the universe altered.

    But I’m not disagreeing with you at all. Yes: I absolutely believe she manipulated his memories. Otherwise, he’d know what the dream of him bleeding in the street and Miri exhibiting some kind of power was all about.

  11. Inuzuka

    So Miri doesn’t know about the Friendship rings that let parties combine. I guess Big Second didn’t invent them until after the heroes party sealed her.

  12. Cake

    That title better not be a joke because I’m ready to lather up already

  13. Misery's End

    My thoughts on why Miri is immune to the memory altering is because of how she was sealed in this world instead of flat out killed. So she retained most of her power, itembox, ect. Otoh Ichinojo’s memory loss isn’t that suprising. He was an average inhabitant of earth even if Miri was his imouto. She may have been protecting her important Onii-san by scaring off any potential interferences, but I doubt it went as far as memory wiping him otherwise she could have just brainwashed him to be her lover from the get go.

  14. TheBuldog

    “Like how is it that she can remember Malina but he can’t, and why isn’t he asking about how she ended up as the demon lord?”

    Explained in previous chapter: When people get transferred, memories about them get erased from everyone, so there is no sense of incongruity. Miri remembers it because she is from “otherworld”. Small throwback to the beginning: Remember when Ichinojo met one of the goddesses (I believe it was meeting Koshmar for the first time)? Ichinojo asked about Miri and Koshmar was confused and literally said, that there WASN’T supposed to be a sister in his life. She is Famiris, or rather what’s left from reincarnating on Earth imo

    • Yes it was explained to us readers but it wasn’t explain to Ichinojo so I just find it weird how he’s not asking anything cause he still doesn’t know that Miri is from the otherworld or that she was previously a demon lord

      • 2Trill

        Wasn’t it stated in chapter 195 that he knew,? And now he’s only keeping it a secret from Haru? When she asked how he felt finding out that she was the reincarnation of Demon Lord Famiris all he said was that he was surprised. And honestly I think it fits his character to just brush things off in that manner.

  15. Kazarine

    And that TL comments destroyed all my positive reason I tried to convince to myself…

    Welp… Human nature is to be suspicious of everything lol… Where I have read this sentence…

    Anyway thank you for your translation!!!

  17. Wasn’t the memory thing explained last chapter?

    Also, what’s so suspicious about the boat rental place?

    Thanks for the chapter XD

    • I find it strange how he would cry over a shop going under? Hahah maybe he’s more related to the shop than he remembers … But i might just be thinking too much

      • StealthAria

        It probably wasn’t just because it went under, he had fond memories of the place (the afore mentioned boat ride) and now he can never go back, a lot of people end up crying because of that kind of thing.
        Though he very well might have some connection there we haven’t heard of, maybe that elderly couple was his grandparents, maybe they thought of him as their grandson and doted on him.

        She likely has manipulated his memories though. Heck, I’d even doubt what she said about the memories of Malina (and even about how they’re transferred), Ichinojo probably saw her fall and “broke” so Miri fixed him by wiping Malina from his memory. After all, if it was made as if they never existed, why would an album exist containing photos taken _because_ they existed?

      • Jago

        From RL experience, I can say that what remember you of dead people sometimes is strange. A sound or an apparently unrelated image will trigger it and generate some angst and longing. It is bittersweet.

        While the MC old world isn’t “dead”, it is someplace where he will never return. so he feels the same. After all the loss was only some month ago. And having his sister, and only her, at his side make the memories stronger and remove the need to appear strong before his new companions.

  18. Alairion

    I also do not feel anything suspicious about the boat rental. Miri remembering ichinojo was already explained, which is also why she remembers malina but he does not “having been a normal person at the time”
    I do believe she has altered memories in the past but she is about to freak out when she finds out about jobless
    Ichinojo was told about miri by the goddess, but she was called miryuu so he did not realize until the fight that his sister was the reincarnation of the demon lord

  19. Thanks for the chapter.

    I’d feel that way to… but I remember Miri mentioning the reason before. Like when Ichigo died, no one else remembered him. And the explanation of Malina not being remembered.

    • Yeah but she didn’t explain to him why she could remember and he doesn’t know that she’s originally from this world yet

  20. SFcipher

    Thanks for the treat.

  21. Thanks for the chapter~Nya…

  22. Nanashi

    Kaguyahime, died &reincarnated or transported to the otherworld & become demonlord famiris because of opposing the goodess, then they sealed power her power then reincarnated once again as miryuu with memories of kaguyahime,, then she fell inluv w/ her brother bcoz of how he cares for his imouto… that kaguya has’nt experienced in her 1st life.. japanesse folklore kaguya hime for is looking man who could give himself to her.. as for ichino who doesn’t suspect his imouto.. i guess she sligthly manipulated his memories to redirect his attention to other thinks,,, or ichino himself doesn’t care about that fact..

  23. Mehehehe

    Mehehehe. Thanks for the chapters. Personally, I feel that its not weird for him to not know malina as her memories were supposed to be erased. But i am pretty sure both miri and ichinojo have some kind of a backstory. Like how ichinojo cant remember some stuff and how miri came to love ichinojo despite her hating humans (pretty sure she dont give a fuck about anyone esle except ichinojo) from her memories of being hime.

  24. Life

    Ichinojo was the previous hero that the demon lord fell for!
    Just a guess. Everything would make a lot more sense like that.

  25. Philippe Spalla

    Thanks for the chapter XD

  26. Captain Obvious?

    TL: Why do I have a feeling Miri isn’t being completely truthful … and it feels like Ichinojo’s memory has been manipulated?

    You’re being paranoid. To stop this paranoia, you might want to translate faster so we could all know. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    With the boat rental place memory and how Ichinojo isn’t asking any questions … Like how is it that she can remember Malina but he can’t, and why isn’t he asking about how she ended up as the demon lord? Interesting …

    I don’t get what you want to go with that boat rental memory. I think the reasoning that all he thought of all this time was Miri was acceptable. Ichinojo not asking useful questions has been his thing for a long time now I think. He can’t remember Malina because all traces of Malina has been erased. Miri can for some reason, just like how she remembered Ichinojo when he was erased. This may be due how she has already reincarnated twice. Again, it is either him not asking useful questions or him being considerate to his younger sister and waiting for her to tell him the story herself.

  27. rooislangwtf


  28. someone

    thanks for the chapter
    didn’t someone mention that the demon lord had come back. anyway, i think that Ichinojo’s been changing his way of thinking since he died (not really dead) and that Miri wasn’t known by the goddesses because she wanted to live with her brother and blocked them off (don’t forget, she’s a demon lord). But in the case that the MC is being manipulated, it’s probably her fault that he couldn’t get a job in their world. In the case that that isn’t true, is it just me or is the MC just…

  29. someone

    sorry about the long comment

  30. someone

    anyways, things happened and i sent another comment (wasn’t me). so, if Miri could control memories then does that mean that she can sacrifice herself and make it so her brother forgets or do something like kill a guy in plane sight and make them a side character that no one remembers? but doesn’t that mean that it has limitations or she could just make the hero forget about her. in fact, how about the whole port all together? then she could enjoy her time with her brother. i mean, that was her goal in the first place. she could also make it so that nobody notices that they forgot. heck, she could be the real MC all together and take her brothers place so he doesn’t really do anything but thinks he does. but he really is the MC right? thanks again!

  31. Kasen

    I have a lot of questions but i’m a bit confussed. Ichinojo, Miri and Malina lived in the same mansion and the first one to “die” was Malina so she has to know about Ichinojo and Miri, her memory is not erased.

    • Yeah but they live in an apartment (called mansion in Japan) so it’s unlikely that she knows them personally given how an apartment has hundreds of households living in it.

  32. Vaibhav

    I think it’s just poor world building if these types of questions are raising.

  33. diettweak

    well miri could remember Malina cause she was the demon lord just like she could remember her brother who was just a normal human i assume at the time so he lost his memories of Malina

  34. junoh315

    I believe that he couldn’t remember Marina because he was originally a person of our world. Miri – likely due to being the demon king in her past life – did not forget her brother even though everyone else in the world did. It’s not weird that Miri would remember someone he forgot.

  35. She can remember Malina for the same reason she also could remember her brother after his disappearance. As someone that inherited the bookworm goddess’ power, I guess she isn’t affected by that.

  36. Seregosa

    There’s also the possibility that the mc is simply a moron… Which we’ve already proved countless times. Not much of this novel makes sense and the mc is pretty pathetic in the first place.
