Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 202: If You See Me – 3


Liera titled her head. Yu IlHan momentarily couldn’t breathe after looking at her beautiful face, but as always, he hypnotized himself to think that ‘Liera is a sister-like being’ and continued speaking.

“Backdoors refer to program codes that the developer put in in order to access an operating system or an application more easily. Let’s say that there’s a backdoor on my computer. Although I would usually have to input a password in order to access my account, the developer can access my account without any identification, and even remotely too. It literally is a ‘back door’.”
[That’s a thing bad guys use!]
“You’re right. Although it’s not really made for evil purposes, the concept is like that.”
[……But why does that word come up here?]
“Well, then. Think about why I would have mentioned such a word at this time.”

Liera colored in doubt. Yu IlHan gave her a little time for her to realize it herself, and his expectations were not betrayed as her face colored in shock.

[You, don’t tell me……!]
“It’s exactly that.”
[You scammer!]
“It’s quite satisfying to hear that from the original scammer.”

What was there to hide? Yes. During the 2nd Great Cataclysm, Yu IlHan had tinkered with all the Traps of Destructions that were to be scattered on Earth!

However, what was more amazing was not that he tinkered with them, but the fact that none of the higher existences realized that.
Liera only found it absurd that she and the other angels were completely fooled by him, but Yu IlHan only proudly explained, without knowing what she felt.

“I put a little more effort since I don’t know when and where something weird would happen. You guys didn’t know when I mixed dragon tongue and ancient elven language.”
[That’s no different from the methods that the fallen angels used!]
“But here’s a situation where I’d need it, no?”

Liera had a lot to say, but she couldn’t say anything.
He was right. Earth, in the end, had fallen into a situation the Heaven’s Army could not predict, and if Yu IlHan had installed backdoors or whatever on the Traps of Destructions and if it helped out in this situation, then she could only accept it.

“I need to dig my own hole in order to survive.”
[Ugh, why is the Heaven’s Army so useless……! However, if they were capable, then IlHan would have a hard time since he wouldn’t be able to make backdoors, but wait, if we were capable, then there doesn’t need to be such situations in the first place…..]

Yu IlHan left Liera to her endless cycle of bad thoughts, and lowered the altitude of the flying fortress. To use the backdoor, there was a need for him to get closer to the ground.


When the flying fortress showed itself below the cloud level, the monsters that noticed the gigantic shadow all looked up at the fortress.

However, Yu IlHan didn’t even care about the wingless monsters. If there was a lot of them, then he would have gone to battle after landing the fortress, but there was too little of them right now! What he was looking for was dungeons that could solve the insufficient monsters problem on Earth right now.

“Oh, there’s one there.”

Yu IlHan’s eyes glistened. Not far from the flying fortress, a vortex specific to dungeons could be seen. Moreover, a minute aura felt from the core regions of the dungeon was proving that that was Yu IlHan’s own doing.

[Huh? But IlHan.]

Liera, who escaped the endless cycle, raised her head. She realized that she forgot about the most important thing.

[And so? What is the utility of this backdoor?]
“I couldn’t add that many. Well, I can see what kind of monsters are inside in what numbers.”
[That’s good! Even I don’t know the contents of the dungeons on Earth. That’s just like navigation! So it’s not that much different from what we informed you until now.]

Liera’s expression brightened. It looked like she could accept that much. Yu IlHan giggled, thinking about how she was so honest and almost unable to lie.

But what could he do? That was just the foundations required to implement the ‘most important utility’ of the backdoor.

Yu IlHan added while giggling.

“And a function to make dungeons explode.”
“I said there is a function to make dungeons explode.”

Yu IlHan knew what Liera was feeling like, so he explained in kind. She, stared at him in a daze after hearing that, before shouting with glaring eyes.

[Why did you put such a function in it!]
“Although there’s a lot. I could use it as a threat when the people of other countries are trying to threaten the ones close to me.”
[That’s just terrorism!]

Liera was angry at the fact that Yu IlHan had made a function that could potentially harm civilians. However, he only shrugged his shoulders.

“Even I don’t want to harm civilians. It’s just a backup method. Carrying it out is a big problem. But you know it as well, don’t you? Think about the position that Vanguard holds. If I don’t have such a card in my hands, it would have been worrying.”
[That’s…… true.]

Even before the 2nd Great Cataclysm, the value of Vanguard was incomparable to all others. If the ones with authority and power had malicious intents, then they could have extended their hands to his friends and family, even if they couldn’t do that to himself.
And in truth, no big problems occurred thanks to the cooperation with Kang MiRae going smoothly, but Yu IlHan couldn’t be criticized for making backdoors just in case. Liera knew that, so she could only sigh.

“And also.”

Just as when Liera accepted the situation a little, Yu IlHan added.

“If I use this, I can fight against a large amount of monsters at once. It’s also advantageous for me to bring them out here instead of me going in.”
[Sheesh, your scale is too big to be measured using a scale at all.]

Of course, Yu IlHan wasn’t going to mention anything about the backdoor at all if he didn’t need to. If it came to the worst, he was going to take the role to clean all the dungeons while going around the world.

However, the people of Earth endured the 2nd Great Cataclysm even without him interfering. No, with the gates to other worlds opening, all of the situation developed at a speed beyond his imaginations, and stabilized as well.
Even he himself, who had prepared everything in advance, was busily working in another place, so there was no need to use such a thing. However, just as everything seemed to reach the end, the 3rd Great Cataclysm occurred and flipped everything over. Although, just speaking of the result, it was a good outcome for him.

[And so? What are you going to do now?]
“Make dungeons explode, of course.”
[So you mean to say, since there are too few monsters on the land, you want to supplement them using the monsters inside the dungeon?]

Yu IlHan’s willpower was like steel. He was no newborn baby and knew of the dangers of making dungeons explode. Liera gave up trying to persuade him.

[Gosh, I don’t care anymore. Do whatever you want.]
“In fact, you don’t have to tell me, I was already going to do it!”

The moment the flying fortress skipped past above a dungeon gate, Yu IlHan called out a small artifact he made using a 2nd class magic stone, and dropped it on top of the gate.
The magic stone dropped rapidly and landed on the gate, and without exaggeration, the gate exploded with a ‘boom’ in the very next moment!

[Freedom! I’m free!]
[Kill humans! Let’s earn records!]
[Kill, kill!]

In an instant, a monster army numbering a hundred thousand rushed out into the region. As this was a dungeon that was maintained from the 2nd Great Cataclysm, over 70% of them were merely 3nd class, but Yu IlHan did not care. They would grow into 4rd classes soon. The current Earth was just that insane.

Yu IlHan realized something and stopped thinking about the insane growth of the monsters.

“Perhaps the people of Earth may not be able to survive even they came back.”
[That’s a coincidence. I was also thinking that. But right now, I don’t think you are in a position to care about other people.]
“That’s true. Let’s move a little quicker!”
[That’s not what I meant, idiooooot!]

Yu IlHan, who made a dungeon explode quickly drove the flying fortress to make other dungeons explode as well. What was even more of a headache was that the monsters from the dungeons that Yu IlHan had freed also had the power to make other dungeons explode!

[Hey, this is completely a dungeon wave! To think you’d cause an artificial dungeon wave…… This is usually a disaster that’s at the top of the food chain in terms of disasters for a world!]
“Good, fill the Earth with monsters!”
[You are scary when you act like a villain like that so stop it!]

Liera didn’t lack this, but Erta was better at retorts. – Yu IlHan thought about that and licked his lips. He didn’t want to show that he missed Erta so he wordlessly sped up the flying fortress.

The world was wide, and there are plenty of dungeons. Yu IlHan’s Traps of Destructions had the function to propagate the backdoors to other Traps of Destructions as well, so right now, the only dungeon Yu IlHan couldn’t make explode was the hellish dungeon that he had escaped before.

[What about the aerial dungeons or the oceanic dungeons?]
“I need to open all of them too. The fortress is prepared for battle whenever and wherever the battle may be.”
[Uaaaah, it’s not like the Traps of Destructions are completely destroyed just because a dungeon was opened, but if that happens, an Overflow will happen…….!]
“That’s exactly what I want!”

The flying fortress was not as fast as Yu IlHan with his Ruin Calling, but the maintainability and the stability of the flight was incredibly high when considering  fortress of its magnitude.

On top of it, Yu IlHan was throwing artifacts like he was tossing toys, and whenever the the fortress passed by a dungeon, they were hit by these artifacts and freed tons of monsters as if a chick was being born from an egg.

[It’s an Overflow, an Overflow!]
“Oh, there’s a dungeon in that airspace there too.”

Once he had planned the collapse of the dungeons, Yu IlHan didn’t know when to stop. Since many monsters were popping out at once, the monsters that didn’t usually fight each other had tense atmospheres, and when the mana current was twisted, the record of monsters were fused with each other to give birth to a freakish new monster. This was none other than the signs of an Overflow.

“Wow, 4th class monsters are being made real-time……”
[Even if you say it like chicks are being born from eggs, it’s a horrible sight!]

Yu IlHan smiled in satisfaction, seeing the Earth coloring in chaos like the initial stages of the 3rd Great Cataclysm, before asking Liera who looked like she had given up on everything again.

“How is it, Earth’s growth will be accelerated, right?”
[If, and only if, the enormous amount of mana possessed by the monsters return to Earth and form a cycle.]
“Aha, that’s my field of specialty right there.”

He replied confidently and extended his hand to grab the Eight-tailed dragon spear. When Yu IlHan swung it like a conductor would in an orchestra, Hundred Eyes, which had been on standby mode all started activating.

A hundred destruction mirrors that rose up into the air one after the other. And a frightening amount of mana gathered around them – The weapon that would call an equal fear and despair to all, aimed at the ground.

[It’s still bright, but I see the moon.]
[There are a lot of moons. They’re shining brightly.]
[There’s a human up there. We need to kill!]

Yu IlHan had destroyed so many dungeons in that short time, that the number of monsters bearing drawn to the flying fortress and gathering in the area easily numbered over a million! There were quite a few 4th class beings that were just born as well, which made Yu IlHan smile.

“Well, then.”

He raised the Eight-tailed dragon spear on his hand and swung it while shouting.


Rays of light numbering one hundred connected the sky and the ground in straight lines. The unlucky monsters in their paths were all burnt to black ash.
The monsters roared at the unpredicted and sudden disaster, but the retribution of light continued until all the monsters in the region died, and until all the monsters beyond the region died.

It took a mere 3 months from the time all the dungeons on Earth were freed, to the time they were all decimated by Yu IlHan.

  1. Drejzer

    I wonder what will be the reactions of people that know (or thought they know) him once they meet…
    And the Hellspawn Army led by our adorable Hell Drake YuMir…

    1. Aldorith

      After their bodies have been butchered into to tiny parts to facilitate the ever expanding growth of Vanguard… which requires more monster lives >:D

    2. Jonathan Hurd

      May you rest in pieces…. that will be used to strengthen Yu Ilhan ever more, lol. Don’t worry Yu Ilhan is like the Native Americans. No part of the monster is going to go to waste. Not even the Soul.

  2. Yup yup

    Thanks for the chapter. I wonder what the higher existence would think when they try to claim earth and need mc alone on earth. Probably with a few tamed 4th classes

    1. Light

      I’m kinda wondering if he’ll use the sun as a furnace while smithing, like how Mjolnir was supposed to have been forged (though the sun isn’t dying). It would probably level up the “creator of myths” title too, and I could imagine it helping with the fire blessing. Of course, I don’t think he’s currently at a level that would survive that, but it seems likely that he’d get there soon enough if he chose to prepare.

    2. Jonathan Hurd

      I kind of like that idea. Maybe he can try to make his own miniature Sun, lol. Use that to power some kind of super orbital death laser.

  3. sdf

    I’m betting here and now that the entrance to the ‘Final Dungeon’ is located in Earth’s mantle, or perhaps inner layers. The entrance must be hidden in magma.

  4. James

    “And a function to make dungeons explode.”

    Safety. Plus, doesn’t hurt to have functions that happen when your alone.

    Thanks for the chapter, It’s awesome

  5. Katsune

    Imagine that the monsters can re-spawn and one re-spawned with his memories and understood it was Earth.
    He’d be like: “Oh… Oh no… OH NO…..” or something like that.

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      I’m honestly curious if the monsters can keep up this fervor to kill Yu Ilhan after realizing just how many of their friends hes killed, lol. At some point Moral has got to break.

      1. sdf

        Well, they’re being regenerated in real time. Ilhan has probably killed every original monster on earth by now. The current monsters are all less than one year old. And while they’re killed, the next generation with high morale will be generated. So on, in a loop.

    1. James

      That formation was big, it’s primary purpose was to transport people to and fro along with a radar-based function. I don’t see a purpose of IllHan using it when he has Destroyer’s Flying Fortress that can pretty much go anywhere.

      So to make Earth and it’s boss be his personal chew toy, he needs the fort.

      1. Jonathan Hurd

        Goddess of Fire. I feel like that will probably be a part of his Accession. Add to that as well the fact that Ilhan seems to be reforging his body into a dragons, lol.

      2. James

        The story has already said that “3 people have made into higher existences then to Godhood by their own power” The Major Factions denounce this notion and say it’s impossible only because they are afraid of walking alone.

        So far, God of Blacksmithing wanted him to make over 100 Artifacts that are equal to or above Unique then 1 Chaos-Ranked Artifact. Now the Goddess of Fire had him Rule over a powerful Flame Entity but we don’t know what other condition that’s neigh impossible for the normal person to do.

        Eat a Star? Sounds boorish. Eat the Eternal Flame, have it become part of you? That’ll be a spectical.

        1. Jonathan Hurd

          The God of Smithing’s Blessings came from Yu Ilhan making a Chaos Ranked artifact, the limit of what human Blacksmiths can make, and when the dinky sword that was Yu Ilhan’s first creation evolved from normal quality to Legendary quality by absorbing Liera’s love. Didn’t really have anything to do with mass producing Unique’s.

          My guess for the Blessing of Fire would be that Yu Ilhan has mastered basically the strongest flame in existence the Eternal Flame. So that would be equal to making the Chaos Ranked artifact in Blacksmithing.

          Then I think the second requirement will need Ilhan to start with a basic flame and evolve it into something to a higher level. I kind of like the idea of Ilhan trying to make his own Eternal Flame. This flame of his could be based around Blaze and work by absorbing the life force of things it kills to fuel and evolve itself.

          1. James

            The fabled Flaming Sword. Not the type that just lights on fire when willed and burn your opponents, the one that can tear asunder all that’s alive. But he makes his own version of the artifact, a God-tier of it, then maybe, just MAYBE, the Goddess of Fire would see him worthy.

            But we don’t know. These Rep Gods don’t make a lick of sense here and it’s annoying.

          2. Jonathan Hurd

            I think the point of the Blessings is it allows you to escape the limits of Humanity. Like how Ilhan can now go past the limits of Chaos Artifacts after getting the Blessing of the God of Blacksmithing. Looking at that then getting the Blessing of the Goddess of Fire should allow him to wield fire that mortals would never be able to touch.

            Getting given a release of the limits like that is probably not cheap for the Gods themselves. Also if it isn’t a being who surpasses common sense then they probably couldn’t take advantage of the limit break. In that case the requirements on a blessing makes some sense.

            I mean if the God of Blacksmithing just gave the Blessing to anyone they still wouldn’t probably be able to make a Chaos Artifact much less something that hit God domain or past that. I would say two requirements helps to factor out luck from the equation.

  6. ambi

    Thanks for the chapter! As long has Yu Ilhan made indestructible bunkers for the people of Earth they could have survived the process of Earth becoming a transcendent world without ever evolving.

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      Who needs indestructible when you could make bunkers that fight back and kill Fourth classes, lol. Make mini fortresses all over the place. God that would be fun.

    2. James

      Boorish, have the bunker with controls of “Miraculously apocalyptic and Unbelievably curseful Destruction mirror” or “Hundred Eyes” weapons at the ready.

      Only those that are trusted by IllHan can control them, if they fork over the funds in Magic Stones and Metals

  7. 13blackcat

    Thanks for the chapter (s)

    I had guessed he would open all dungeons and had a function for that, but still was caught off guard by him exploding the dungeons, creating dungeon wave and causing overflow……
    I have a doubt whether earth will evolve into a higher world or higher existence, as it seems earth is the dungeon boss in hell dungeon.
    Other than that, does anyone remember that Yu Ilhan bet 100 won with Erta/ Lierra that Akashik records will be the final boss? What do you guys think?
    And I really hope Kang Mirae becomes the 1st one to open door to earth and meet Ilhan….. It would be fun to see her fainting again and again after seeing the recent artifacts 😛

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      My theory is that Ilhan eventually gets back into the Hell Dungeon and then finds the Spirit of Earth and Subordinates it. That way Earth comes under his control, lol. I think he then goes and does that to other worlds close to him starting with Dareu.

      1. 13blackcat

        Yeah…. Earth might become his subordinate. And that may help ease his conditions to evolve into 5th class. But I don’t think it likely that he will conquer other worlds too. As he doesn’t need them and whether the other worlds even have a spirit is a question.
        But he might be able to call his subordinates and family to earth after he conquers it.
        And what do you think does the title mean???? “If you see me”

        1. Jonathan Hurd

          Hmm I was feeling like it might be somewhat of a Call back to the chapter titles when humanity first came back called “You Can’t See Me?”

          The obvious guess to me is seeing the Spirit of Earth from the Hell Dungeon I think.

          The thing that keeps popping in my head is just the line “If you see me then you’re already dead”, lol. Think that’s from some kind of movie but no idea which. Its hard to tell currently…

    1. 13blackcat

      I also hope so. But what I fear most is not ending with a single girl…… It is that Ilhan will be forever alone and evolve Pancosmic loner title to Eternal loner…… If it is to cockblock MC, author could do it.

      1. Jonathan Hurd

        I don’t think the Girls would accept leaving him alone at that point. Considering at least two of them are already Higher Existences dying of old age doesn’t seem to be a real worry. Then of course there is YuMir who I can’t see Ilhan leaving alone or behind. So I don’t worry too much that Ilhan will end up in eternal solitude.

  8. TheUnnaturalDisaster

    Something that probably I only care about is how powerful is the ‘Eight-tailed Dragon Spear’? Last time we were told it had a 7000 attack power.

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      I feel like it probably evolved since last time we got that number. It is also probably growing stronger with Orochi’s growth. I guess we’ll find out the next time he evolves it potentially.

  9. Void

    Tis was a pretty boring chapter. Most of it was captain-obvious descriptions that did not need so much space in the narrative.
    He blew up dungeons, he killed monsters. That’s all there was in this chapter.

  10. Darkos

    well, since normal tornados don’t work to earn the blessing of the goddess of fire, why doesn’t he tries to set a country or two in fire? maybe a world scale fire/explosion will do the trick xD

  11. 13blackcat

    Hey, I have 2 questions:
    1. if the earth has been completely closed off from other worlds and the angels have ‘abandoned’ it till it becomes a higher world does it mean earth is now an abandoned world?
    2. Since earth is closed off and Yu Ilhan is on Earth, why hasn’t the time been fast-forwarded? I mean there was some talk about the time axis problem was somehow related to the hidden records of the Yu family or something like that?
    I would like to know everyone’s opinion on this.

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      Well answer to 1. Is yes I believe Earth is currently what could be classified as an abandoned world. A bit worse honestly because not just the angels have left it but all the other groups too.

      For 2. I would say the reason we’re not getting a time dilation on Earth is because while the Earth has been abandoned it hasn’t been sealed. The time Dilations happened to Yu Ilhan when Earth was time frozen and to Yumir when the DDA/Fallen Angels sealed off an abandoned world. Currently I think Earth is just like a normal abandoned world kind of like what Dareu was.

      1. 13blackcat

        1. So does Yu Ilhan get power from Angels support? Or whatever it was?
        2. But there were some mentions of earth closing completely. I think when Na Yuna disappeared, when Kang Mirae was trying to open gate and in Erta and Spierra conversation…. Or maybe I misunderstood what they meant.

        1. Jonathan Hurd

          1. I believe Angels Support is currently active. Liera did state that she is not connected with Heaven currently.

          2. The thing that was blocked was their connection to Earth by Earth. I would say the difference is kind of the scale. When the Earth was sealed it was basically put in its own personal bubble that no one could break into. The Earth currently has basically blocked the small pathways of the people personally. So instead of a bubble there is a bunch of little personal barriers against each person that pushes them out.

          What that means to me is that Ilhan can actually leave since the Earth isn’t sealed from the outside it is just pushing people trying to come back away. That is also why Kang MiRae and Yuna might be able to get back. They’re connected to Earth still they just need to get it to let them back in.

          1. 13blackcat

            1. Yeah, but seeing as he doesn’t need it for 4th classes anymore and there is already the option of activating it against higher existences so it doesn’t really matter.
            2. Sounds possible. Much more possible than anything I came up with.

      1. 13blackcat

        I first thought it was just a wavy design…. After some time I read a similar comment saying “I just realised the photo is of an ogre and not a girl I with really long hair…..” So I looked at it carefully and saw a gorilla/ogre face….. And now it looks like a girl….. I think they have edited it to make it look more like a girl because it sure looked like a gorilla a few weeks ago……

  12. Bob Bobfry

    When is the donate coming back. Also I feel it may be useful for you to try to work ahead and keep a archive of already translated chapters to release so you don’t fall behind. You may also think about raising the donations per chapter if you cannot keep up with the current speed of donations.
