One day, Earth’s God of Destiny, and Galdardia’s Chief God had a bet.

The God of Destiny lost, and chose ten mediocre souls to hand over.
To those ten souls, the Chief God of Galdardia handed them new vessels.
And amongst those mediocre souls was one salaryman who fought against his destiny of death.
How will this man grow from now on? Not the God of Destiny, nor the Chief God of Galdardia, nor even the author themselves know.

This is a work of fiction. I do not own this series and all credits go to the author Broccoli Lion (ブロッコリーライオン) . The raw Japanese web novel can be found here.

    • Unfortunately I am the only staff of this great realm :/ haha so I don’t have the time to make a pdf or epub as of now. You can click on the drop down list titled “Previous comments from Blogger” and look for sukanime’s comment. He made the epubs for the previous volumes :)

  3. Lol

    Thanks for translating this :D

  4. here the link of the pdf for chapter 041-053 ..
    if there is interested… and thanks to the translators for translating this works.. and also to the author… :D

  5. Salty

    So I just started reading but thedefend’s site is down. Is there another link?

  6. Why does the arrows to show the chapters beside the volume name not work. When I close book 3 it opens book 1. Then when I close book 1 it opens book 3 ._. Are you trolling me sir?

  7. Uiseiul

    I need to ask, will there be any love interest in this novel? Right now the novel feels very linear and it gets boring at times however there are lots of undeveloped plot points that can enhance the read. Like the other travellers or a possible love interest

    • Yea there’s a lot of potential story points … I don’t read too far ahead though so I can’t answer you >.<

  8. AnimeFan9001

    What’s Luciel’s latest status? I’m not sure if it gets updated after the spirit incident.

  9. If there are any interested I made an EPUB/PDF of vol 1-7 Cheers to the translator!

    • shiki

      If you have the time, do you mind updating the epub to include the full chapter 7?
      Thanks to both you and especially Tsierp for the hard/great work.

  10. lyacweet

    Why can’t i open the link from chapter 33 up? It said forbidden erorr i am not allowed to access this address. Please help…

  11. The Question!?

    Ummm… why does it say

    403 – Forbidden Error
    You are not allowed to access this address.
    If the error persists, please contact the website webmaster.

    in chapter 4 below???

  12. Boo

    Invincible Saint releases don’t show up on the front page :o only see it when checking ToC!

  13. DogsrSweet

    Tseirp I was wondering if it was ok if I transferred the chapters to a gdoc so that I and others with shit internet can read it? I will only do so it if I have your permission of course, and I will credit it to you and all that, so is it posoble like blackmist from other comments can read?

  14. Poepunk

    Thanks for the translation

  15. Natsume02

    Here as a thanks for your translations: every illustrations from the novel.
    Just link this album on your website so that the others can see it.

  16. Rei

    How fast LN pacing.? From illustration in vol 2, Luciel already become arcbishop aren’t he(last pict)..?

    • Yeah it seems like he’s reached where book3 of the webnovel is at book2 of the LN. Haven’t gotten my copy yet and don’t have the time to read it either haha … I am curious as to what are the differences between the WN and LN though … this series can definitely be a lot better with the typically better plot planning and writing in LN

  17. I have some slight issues. When I tried to open chapter 139, it says something about maintenance but it works fine with the other chapters. So I guess it’s only chap 139 ryt? Ty

  18. selfhate

    ty for your work

  19. NeVMiku

    Thanks a lot for your work. I really enjoy this series and has been speeding through the chapters on epubs someone compiled. Great job! Not many grammar mistakes which is a great read overall.

  20. Blubunni

    Thanks for all the hard work!

  21. Hamlet

    Ohhh man thank you so much for the translation :)

  22. Renki

    can ask ? chapter 355 is the end ?

    • Doesn’t seem like it from the chapter although that chapter has been posted a long time ago with no new updates :/ thats not a good sign

  23. how many volume is the salaryman comic ?

  24. Anon

    This is an example of a bad description. We’re just told a few gods did something, and some random guy perhaps, maybe, is going to do stuff. Nobody knows what he’s going to do.

    …..Well, that sure doesn’t make me want to read. Too bad.

    • Anon

      Alright. I went through story and,
      It’s fairly decent. I dumped the story at chapter 100 or so, and it became insufferably boring at around chapter 80. Not that bad for a random isekai story, but boy is it not going anywhere fast.

  25. Belikewater

    Thanks a lot for your work, I really enjoy this series!

  26. ICe

    thougth id mention that while rereading i found most next chapter links are not working in book 2. from 10 on defends site to ss2 and from ss2 to chapter 11. also 11 to 12, 13 to 14 plus the main/toc link is also broken,14 to 15, 15 to 16, 16 to, 17 to 18, 19 to 20, 20 to 21. thats as far as i got tonight but it looks like almost all of them on tseirp are not leading to the next chapter anymore but the ones to thedefend are working fine. also the links from the toc are working fine just the next chapter ones on the chapter itself dont work/lead to a wrong place.
    thanks for translating this series and most of all for sticking with it! seriously grateful to have such a dedicated translator thats persistant not unlike a certain person named luciel we all know :)

  27. complaint to author

    can i say something….on book 1 everything is not complete…just like it said and then yes it finished already (most part lot of skipped) no detail background….everything mc move to next part no detail background it just dialog and yes just talk an it finish…..i donno if author rookie or newbie….and part Luciel and Nanaera holding hand together it not to much on book 1…i donno…why so different from illustration…

  28. Rita

    I want to read it but I usually didn’t read something without “romance” tag in it no matter how cool it is. I’m fine with no harem but without romance is…
    Soo, I just wanted to confirm, is this novel really have no romance at all? Ah, not side character’s romance but MC’s I mean.

  29. Can I ask for people that have read ahead whether there’s any speck of romance in the future?
    I stopped reading like almost a year ago, it was around when the girl that sacrificed her arm confessed to the MC that she’s interested to have a relationship with him..
    But then I read ahead a couple chapters and there’s no development on that. Got bummed I choose to get out.
    I need answer as romance is my life and blood, that’s my main reason for reading a lot of things, and here, it seems the author just don’t care.

    I also find it Hella weird that the bunny girl in the cover, that pull me in in this novel, her appearance in the actual novel is very little and she actually just went and married someone else off screen. It’s like the author was forced to have some girl in the cover for LN purposes despite they doesn’t plan to have anyone as main heroine in the volume.

    Really, this novel is the complete opposite of Red and Lit’s story.

    • Unfortunately there is no progress for romance in this novel even until the last chapter i translated. (I’m on hiatus atm for this novel)

  30. Mottle

    Has this dropped or do you not have time for it

  31. Ollerus San

    Heyy…did u drop the translation? Thanks for translation btw

  32. dewa

    Has this dropped or do you not have time for it

  33. Akira

    I read until chp 53. But I’m curious, did MC have gf or something like that in future?

    • rororo

      I haven’t read that far but I don’t think so. If the author has plans then surely they’re taking their time and that can be detriment.

      The author deliberately ignoring most established female characters. When he visited his hometown I think Pekora and was it Monika didn’t even get a scene with him of course I might be wrong and I accidentally skipped that part. Nah don’t think I was wrong about that one. Seriously not even one scene lmao.

      There’s also that point where author assigned the MC Healers knights cinsisted of men instead of the all female Paladin corps headed by Lumina.

      Then there’s the issue with Catherine. Pope assigned Catherine to be MC’s aide iirc but she didn’t even went with him in Ienith.

      There’s also the case of the slaves. Female slaves are waifus of Lionels.

      And what about the men he met in Macaroni town? His master keep getting mentioned, the chef and his brothers. And yet Monica and Pekora forgotten. Wait is Monica even her name? Because I forgot.

      I think what the author is trying to do is to give readers a little taste of romance here and there (this is specially good for manga because fanservice insert cover sells) while focusing more on the camaraderie between men.

      In short this manga is all about camaraderie between men. You’ll never get your romance and sadly I’m out. I enjoyed it though atleast until he cleared the Labyrinth. Everything’s downhill beyond that point.


  35. byakuya kuchiki

    I heard this was dropped so I never tried it.
    But now its back(?) So I guess I’ll give it a try

    • Anonymous

      It’s basically dropped the raws go further but the author hasn’t written on the platform in almost 2 years

  36. Kravenich

    This story is basically dead on syosetu. The author hasn’t posted a new chapter in over 2 years. The light novel was picked up by j-novel club and goes to volume 10.
