Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 211: I, Too – 3

The strike from the shadow that shot up from the ground unbeknownst to anyone pierced Yu IlHan’s abdomen. THe blade sharpened over many years found its vengeance target.
Its concealment was at the least, at the level of mastery, or perhaps an advanced skill. Although less than Yu IlHan, it was at least enough to deal Yu IlHan a pre-emptive strike!


[A perfect surprise attack, but the ability of of the title ‘Untouchable’ activates and cancels the critical hit.]

However, the fact that Yu IlHan had acquired the title ‘Untouchable’ came into play here. The surprise attack that should have taken his life was nullified.

Of course, even after considering that, the power behind the surprise attack was shocking, and Yu IlHan got a huge hole on his stomach before falling onto his knees.

“Kugh, Kergh.”
[IlHan! I, IlHan!?]

The problem was that his movements were restricted in class advancements or skill evolution processes. This situation belonged to the latter, with the Language skill.
Yu IlHan acknowledged that he was careless due to having become excited from acquiring a 5th class magic stone. Of course, not that it would change anything against such an overwhelming opponent even if he wasn’t careless! As proof, all the traps he had installed were rendered useless!


The being behind the surprise attack had shown up. And surprisingly, the figure was not very large, a little taller than Yu IlHan or at the same height.
Despite the fact that ‘it’ was in that space, it had no ‘form’ to speak of, and was a figure that was like trembling shadow, and only the mana swirling around the body made him estimate the overwhelming amount of mana it had. That wasn’t the problem though.

[How can the mana be so……. it’s completely same to that of Earth’s!] (Liera)
[Eeeeeek!] (Mystic)

Mystic, about to lose her master, lowered the altitude and shot beams like hell. However, it dodged every one of those beams with body movements. This wouldn’t be possible even if it was Yu IlHan amidst the barrage!
Just the fact that the beams from Hundred Eyes would deal a significant damage, and so it had to dodge every single attack, and couldn’t approach Yu IlHan, was of help right now.

[You always bullied us.]

Every word it spoke while dodging the beams, became a curse and struck Yu IlHan. That which contained a frightening poison was fatal enough to threaten Yu IlHan’s life had he not mastered Higher curse resistance and Extreme poison resistance.

[IlHan, dodge! I said move, eeek!]
“Liera……! If you move, proactively……”

Every one of its actions and words became skills. If the 5th class Yu IlHan had faced on Earth until now were just insanely strong 4th class beings, the one in front of him right now wasliterally ‘on a different dimension’. It had a completely different level of record, and was on a different concept of being ‘life’.


Liera, who realized that Yu IlHan was unable to move, hugged Yu IlHan and flew backwards. Just that was enough to pressure her body. However, she did not stop despite knowing that. Looking at the two, ‘that guy’ did not stop his curses.

[I tried to chase you out but I couldn’t. It was so annoying!]
“You…… experienced……. ‘the’ millennium, didn’t you?”

Yu IlHan, who still couldn’t move freely due to the evolution process of the Language skill, barely moved his mouth to reply. It did not say anything, but Yu IlHan knew that it was its way of acknowledgement.

“You knew me from a thousand years ago.”
[There is no life form that does not know you on Earth.]

Its reply made Yu IlHan smile even as the pain from his wound flared up. He just found it funny. He only struggled to prepare against the future in those thousand years, but turns out all the life forms left behind along with him were all watching him. What else was funny if this wasn’t?

[You were infinitely egotistical. Everyone wanted to live, but you only lived alone using all of them as footholds.]
“Yes, I did.”
[The Earth resents you. We all resent you.]

Yu IlHan remembered that the mutant monsters that rampaged around during the initial stages of the Great Cataclysm, had drastically decreased once.
What happened to the life forms that acquired vast records from enduring the thousand years like Yu IlHan? The question he couldn’t think of until now due to everything that happened, filled his mind.

The hell dungeon. Can such a horrifying space be born without any reason? In the thousand years, Yu IlHan acknowledged the records that one individual cannot possibly achieve by the Akashic Record only, but is Yu IlHan the only being that was acknowledged of those records?

“I was alone from the beginning. So…..I couldn’t think about the others.”

Yes, that was the mistake. This damned loner thought-process was grabbing onto his ankle and holding him back until the very end.


Hearing that, ‘that guy’ spat out curses again using its non-solid mouth. Even right now, beams were shooting down like rain, but not one hit its body.

[Selfish humans. We really hate you.]
“Fuu…… That’s nothing new.”

Yu IlHan wasn’t suddenly going to say “all the animals on Earth are as important as humans! Let’s protect the antarctic penguins” or something like that.
Everything he did on Earth was for his survival, and even though the poison that had piled up until now was at the point of attacking him, he did not regret that. He only found his mistakes unfortunate.
[I will kill you. Humans aren’t needed in the new world.]
“A new world…… I want to ask something about that.”

A keyword that tugged his mind popped up, and made Yu IlHan open his mouth again. It was an attempt to create an opening for Mystic to hit, but it was showing movements of dodging all the beams even while reacting to his words.

“Do you know the whereabouts of the children that were born after the Great Cataclysm?”

And for some reason, it replied in kind.

[The dungeon full of our resentment. The dungeon you mercilessly trampled on. The dungeon where only mutant life forms and greed remains. Everyone came inside there. We did not do it. It was the Earth’s choice.]

He finally got the answer he had been looking for for 3 years. He wished that it wasn’t true, but he did expect this to be the case.
So it was like that after all. There was no way Yumir will be able to grow so rapidly unless it was on the same level of that dungeon. However, that meant that, all the children born after the First Great Cataclysm were sucked into that place and…..

“Ha, …….Haha.”

He subconsciously laughed in vain. Rage boiled inside his chest. The innocent life that disappeared while knowing nothing. Thinking back to the uncountable number of children, even Yu IlHan couldn’t help but be enraged.

However, it replied very firmly, its voice containing countless emotions.

[It should be the same to you humans. Everyone kills something else in order to survive. I also did just that. This is not a game. This is a competition for survival. We are the same as you. We will kill you in order to survive.]
“Heh, you really pick the worst words……”
[I, will kill you.]

From some time, a spear appeared on the shadow hands. That looked very similar to the Eight-tailed dragon spear that Yu IlHan used. No, in fact, its movements as well looked similar to Yu IlHan’s, just a lot faster.
Thinking about it, it was quite natural, as this was a being that had watched Yu IlHan for a thousand years, and more after the Great Cataclysm.

However, Yu IlHan still could not move. It was because the evolution of the Language skill was of an unprecedentedly large scale that required a vast amount of records.
He couldn’t help but exclaim at the fact that a person can become so helpless, but no matter how much he struggled, he could not move a single toe. He could only blink and move his lips. This was just like being a complete cripple!

[Eeek! Eeeeeeeek!] (Mystic)

The reason Yu IlHan could still live until now was thanks to the beams from the Flying fortress. Mystic’s judgement was very clever. She realized that time was the most important thing to Yu IlHan right now, and was trying to gain some using whatever means possible.

[Die! Die!] (Mystic)
[That won’t work, traitor.]

Of course, that did not last forever. There was a limit to the stored energy and magic stone on the Flying fortress, and shooting beams like mad in order to prevent the shadow from moving forward, it was very quickly nearing those limits. Yu IlHan estimated that the beams wouldn’t last until he was ready.

He had faced against a few 5th class beings. He killed more than ten himself. Despite that, the guy in front of him was on a completely different league. There was no way Yu IlHan didn’t’ know what that implied.

That guy, was of the 6th class. On one side was a 3rd class despite not lacking talent or effort, and on the other side was a 6th.
This was the difference between a monster and a human; between a human that can only gain experience by killing monsters, and a monster that could grow endlessly without harming other beings by acquiring mana and records!

[We are a collection of consciousnesses. No matter how fast you’ve grown…… you cannot win against us.]
“Even if you…… say stuff like you’re the last boss…… I’m only, fuu, very annoyed you know?”

A mere 6th class was acting so bossy. Those kind guys always defeated in the most absurd way possible! However, unfortunately, Yu IlHan’s preparations weren’t done yet. If he just got his 4th class, or if he just got the blessing of the goddess of fire! Or just, if he could move right now!

However, there was one being, a person, that could still fight right now, excluding him.

[Fuu, really, nothing goes outside expectations.]

Liera’s wings flapped. Her body was covered in light pink, and the symbol of the blessing of the goddess of love, the spear, was in her hands.

That spear was one that became stronger when protecting the person that one loved. In other words, for this moment.


Yu IlHan was disgusted at himself. Even though he was saying ‘no’ on the outside, he ended up thinking that it had gone according to his calculations. He was disgusted of himself because of his thoughts.

Just from when did he rely on the sacrifice of others? When was it that he confidently boasted that he could take care of everything by himself? Did he train until now for this? Even though he was about to lose Liera that was the most important existence to him?

[What do you mean no? That’s why you’re no good, IlHan.]

However, Liera replied shyly as if she had read his mind. Unlike the warmth in her smile, she was in complete battle mode right now. The overwhelming quantity of mana emitted by her, and the aura trained over countless years, was stopping the shadow from moving.

[You need to learn to rely on others more.]
“I can’t cause such nuisance to others.”
[It’s not a nuisance. That’s what I want.]
“Even if you do, you……”
[Why don’t you get it, IlHan?]

Liera’s firm words struck Yu IlHan deeply in the heart.

[Like that, you’ll forever be alone. There’s no way my feelings will get to you.]

Liera turned back. Her movements were nothing short of throwing away her life, but it was actually to hide her blushed cheeks.

[Yes, there was you. There was also you. The one that was always with the human. In front of us. Again and again!]
[I’m saying something important so don’t interrupt.]

When two 6th class auras clashed on the ground, the land that could not endure the shock was flipped over as the skies trembled before their might. The shock could also be felt at where Yu IlHan was. So such a manga-esque scene is possible… – in his absent-minded thoughts, such useless thoughts floated around.

[Listen well, IlHan. I won’t tell you twice because it’s embarrassing.]

And to his absent-minded thoughts, Liera’s voice leaked in.

[…..I love you, IlHan. Me, to you. More than anyone.]

Finishing her words, Liera charged in without waiting for Yu IlHan’s reply. The shadow also realized that it had to trample Liera first in order to kill Yu IlHan, and it charged at her as well.


From the moment Liera used her powers for anyone than herself, the feathers on her wings were being pulled out one by one, and at the same time, the power of a higher existence left her body, and a brilliant white-colored blood splattered from her wing bones. The white feathers and drops of blood made it look as if it was snowing in the night sky.

Despite that, she did not stop. The light growing from the pink spear protected her and her objective.

[O, god of love!]

The woman who abandoned heaven and returned to being a lower existence, shouted courageously as she struck with her spear.

[Please give me the power to protect the one I love!]

And the moment the two charged, Liera made a hole in the shadow even while vomiting out blood.

[The skill, Language, evolved into the skill, record! You are now able to translate everything you see, hear, and feel into the language of the Akashic Record and record them. Once recorded, everything remains as a record belonging to yourself.]
[All skill growth rates increase by two.]
[All experience and the quantity of record acquired from monsters increase by two.]
[Attack power and critical hit rate increases by 30% when facing against a foe that you’ve experienced and recorded before.]

The skill evolution ended, and at the same time.

[You have mastered the skill, Blaze. You become the lord of fire.]
[You have acquired the blessing of the goddess of fire. Fire attribute resistance and attack power increases by 50%. Flames can no longer harm you. Flames wielded by the enemy can lose their controls to you and you will become able to wield them. The leagues of all skills that use fire increase by one level.]

[You can proceed to 4th class.]

Yu IlHan’s eyes glistened.

  1. Masukure

    So fire attribute ressistance increases by 50%.. but then it says flames can no longer harm him…. doesn’t that make the resistance a bit redundant? Its like having a piece of equipment that increases fire resistance when you have a skill that grants fire nullification.

    1. Rlackbabbit

      Theres probably skills which nullify resistance for example flame resistance penetration by 10% or such and such or curses like curse of weakness to flame which would reduce flame resistance. I imagine that they work against each other.

    2. LOTRfreak101

      It would matter for things like his armor which requires a certain amount of fire resistance. obviously for resistance to fire itself it wouldn’t help at all.

    3. eins

      bec equipnebts still need those requirements… being not affected by flames won’t let you equip those… or probably can but… novel powers lol


      Rather, instead of the angel waifu, I might die instead. My heart is beating so fast, I think my circulatory system is falling apart. This cliff is brutal T_T

    2. Kay

      Wtf she lost her power because she helped against a being of her level that makes no sense how the hell are they an army for good if they lose they’re powers by helping others she should live as long as she has a heart and brain with his blood and armor options

  2. sdf

    Sorry lord translator, I don’t get these lines:
    [All skill growth rates increase by two.]
    [All experience and the quantity of record acquired from monsters increase by two.]

    Did they double? Or have a number added, meaning growth rates actually are quantifiable? Like a growth rate value of 7 gets two added, becoming 9?

    1. Chamber

      for the first one it’s growth ‘rate’ increases by 2 so double.
      second one… I’ll have another look at the wording, but still double

  3. Redzeth

    Thanks for the chapters! Also thanks to all the donators, dang this cliffhanger tough I need more weekly dosus of Illhan T.T but don’t overwork yourself!

  5. Taurus​_Silver

    Lol, 404/50$, 404 not found…
    That just feels like a really bad joke…
    Thanks for the triple release, I’m literally hanging off the Niagara falls right now.

  6. Zom the Monk

    Thanks for the chapter! Ah “Libera Me from Hell”, great song, and also one of the odder ones that I’ve heard. Because who honestly would think about combining both rap and opera together

  7. Taurus​_Silver

    Great work as always, but I can’t help but to suspect that you do this on purpose.
    Keep up the good work, just don’t overexert yourself.

  8. Sable

    Even though I’ve read the spoilers and I know what happens next I can’t wait for the next chapter, it’s damn epic!

    Thanks for the translation!

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      Considering the stupid amount of experience he has gained I don’t think that part is a problem. Thanks to the new skill Record. He should have an easier time than anyone absorbing the requisite records to become a higher existence. He just needs to kill and absorb that mass consciousness into himself.

  9. Jonathan Hurd


    Thank you so much for the chapters Chamber. I am really thankful you didn’t stop at two. That first cliff would of killed me.

    Also Language skill is stupidly broken, hahaha. Also grats to anyone who predicted that mastering Blaze was the final condition.

  10. kouk2002

    I hoping that his new skill is able to help save Liera along with the armour he made for her.

    Rather than him gaining his 4th class or not, I’m far more concerned about that. I’m also hoping they get together after this fight. Though her confession was so full of death flags I’m slightly worried.

    1. McLaindog

      Her losing her Angel class is for the best seeing how illhan isn’t going to join heaven but make his own group. Also yay I was right he just needed to max out blaze to get his blessing.

    1. Shaoshola

      The 6th class did survive i think and like every bossy caracter he will start insulting liera and ilhyan will explosed of rage get his 4th class and beat the hell out of him.
      I can’t see anything else than this and oh man I am waiting it 0.0

    2. James

      We already know that Big Bad Bosses are such blabber mouths, because they think they have so much power that one finger flick, and the opponent’s gone.

      But I’ll give this Shadow kudos for telling us where Yumir is, in Hell Dungeon.

  11. Yup yup

    Thanks for the chapter.

    And the spot for best girl goes to liera for giving up the power of an higher existence for a maybe relationship. I’m guessing she would iihan team of higher existence to evolve again

  12. Paps

    Thanks for the chapter, I am already imaginationg, how mutch heat the author had to withstand from the Koreans fan at this clif!!!!! DAMN DON’T KILL HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yep I am goign to buy my ticket to go kick some author-san ass!!!!!

  13. Sneezy

    Suggested rewrite:
    Flames wielded by the enemy can lose their controls to you and you will become able to wield them

    Enemies wielding flames can lose their control over it to you and you will be able to wield these.

  14. Thoth0

    I love how the money for donations is through the roof. If only I didn’t spend my extra money on college for the Fall Term, I would have donated a few hundred. T^T
    Liera stop raising death flags please.

  15. Raul

    Isn’t 6th class higher existence(above or equal to 5th) ? so the same as Liera(she is 7th), so she would have no problems in fighting him, i don’t get what the author is doing ‘-‘
    can someone explain? please…

    1. Arch

      liera is a 6th class. Also the second she went to attack him she becamr a lower existence again. So shes prettty outmatched after that first strike.

    2. Zom the Monk

      Basically as Liera is on a lower class world she is incapable of acting other than in self-defense otherwise she’ll immediately lose her abilities. Now 6th class thing is basically the amalgamation of all the records of the creatures who experienced the 1000 year separation so they are counted as part of the Earth, and thus does not have that penalty I believe.

  16. Abyssal

    Thank you for the chapter~
    Omg, wow!~
    Liera declaring her love while moving for me is a bit cliche and both Yu Ilhan and the author should know that considering how Meta they are :P~

    Also, my god Max language skill is so OP, and on top of that, he’s now going to enter 4th class. Does this mean he can level without killing now? He just needs to experience or “record” a record for him to acquire it now~

  17. Akabra0307

    Chamber is this your way of getting back at all the Sponsors? I’ll give them chapters alright then leave them at the cliffhanger of cliffhangers.

  18. Payback for Cliffhanger!!

    You want the next chapter? Channel that frustration into donations! Let’s make Chamber’s donation backlog exceed the thousand dollar mark!

  19. Treyon

    DAMN!!! now i cant wait for the next chapter, probably Liera will evolve to something else than an angel along with Ilhan becoming something else too when he reaches 5th class….

    ALso dude… the destruction, death and blood that will fall on the angels on all 3 sides will be of bloody epic proportions when he learns that heavens army sold earth and helped the other 2 armies… DEATH TO THEM!!

  20. Will Wall

    This is arguably the dumbest we’ve ever seen ilhan/the author..
    So he knows he will be incapacitated and defenseless for some time, even sets up ballistae and such.
    Or whatever it was called; that even forcibly expells hostiles as it activates.

  21. James

    It’s the Revanant Rita Incident all over again. Only this time “Hey! You! Get off my lawn!”

    Shadow Yu IllHan will never beat Yu IllHan, because he’s stronger than him.

    Thanks for the chapter, will continue waiting.

  22. Jdjdj

    Lol, the shadow belike thinking world is sht and giggles,
    bitch if you think like that might as well kill yourself, everything in life is unfair because it has to maintain a damn balance.

  23. Pan

    I guess we will shown the fifth option of Liera armor? Something like, “perseve the life of the armor wearer, no matter how the grievous wounds inflicted. Can be used once every years” or “pause the time of the armor user when the user in death bed. Can only be disabled by the wearer or by the creator of armor. Can be used once every years.”

    Or even more OP: “preserve the armor wearer, no matter how grievous wounds inflicted. Use stored records to heal wounds. How many records used depends on the wounds. Can use external records.”

    By those option Ilhan then can use his records to preserve Liera, gaining his first faction member.

    1. sdf

      I posted a different guess. It’s somewhere below this comment.

      Your idea has merit, but I can’t let go of the idea of placing Liera’s soul in her spear, and having Ilhan wield her! Both of our ideas have Liera unable to use her body until Ilhan becomes a higher existence, so why not make her useful in the meantime?

      …Regarding Liera’s body, I’m really, really hoping it dies. Just to see what Ilhan will do with it. And how Liera reacts to it.

      1. Pan

        Uwaaahhhh then there is no waifu no more! 😭

        I like Liera, I’m her fan! Liera and Erta for waifus!

        I guess Ilhan going to collect her scattered feathers. And make another beeeeaaaaammmmm from it? 🤔

  24. Yoon

    Finally! Now he can level up like Mir! He doesn’t need those stupid class advancement quests or skill evolution quests! He can just evolve skills by practcing! His strength growth rate is now going to be the fastest in the universe.

    I wonder what level he will be. Killing all those 5th class beings should make his level shoot up pretty darn fast. I wonder what happens when he masters the record skill. He would probably become a deity.

    1. Paps

      So if I got thing rigth, the evolution of his skill allows him to interact with his record, like an stastus windows in those VRPG novels where he can change his values and allocate his expierence points, and allows him to see other people records???

  25. Izullion

    I’m confused about this system. Why is she losing her status of a higher existence because she’s fighting another higher existence? It’s not self defense? Well then how do the angels get to execute traitors? How are wars instigates in higher worlds? Because they are on lower worlds? If that’s the case why does the higher existence and previous one get to attack Ilhan?

    1. Jun

      I believe that it was mentioned before that the moment a higher existence fight for the sake of a lower existence then they will lose their status as a higher existence. As you can see here, the enemy’s main goal is to kill Il Han, therefore Liera’s fight is not an act of self defense but a fight to protect a lower existence.

    1. sdf

      My guess is… soul capture, allowing Ilhan to take Liera’s soul after her body dies. Perhaps her soul can be placed in her Spear, which will then be wielded by Ilhan until he becomes a higher existence. After that, he can give her some of his records to create a new body.

      The Eight-Tailed Dragon Spear is already unworthy of Ilhan, especially considering its soul has been moved to the armor.

      1. sdf

        But one thing’s for sure…no more pitiful mini-angel sleeping on Ilhan’s head adorably. ‘Tis a great loss.

        I can only hope she doesn’t lose the white wings.

      2. sdf

        Another idea is that Ilhan could choose to NOT make her a new body, and directly infuse the records into her new body, the spear. I’d love to see a shapeshifting sentient weapon higher existence heroine, like in Seinarukana and Aiyoku no Eustia.

  26. justreadingnovels

    sigh….and here i thought this novel won’t do things like this where the mc may need to evolve from being a “loner”……sigh…..is relying really needed in a life of a living person?…A-N-D the plot of strengthening only after certain companions have sacrificed themselves…..so…..clique….

  27. Kay

    Not really seeing a reason for the earth to hate him as he just followed survival of the fittest and did what he need to survive just like the other creatures of Earth.
    what I wanna know is who this we is how it became a collective
    why he was left out and why it didn’t try to contact him
    how it grew so powerful so quickly and how did it get records
    Also what happened to the rule about higher class not being able to attack lower beings without penalty and really the angel died to easily
    Why didn’t he use the hour glass

  28. Admiralen

    This is getting REALLY god damn dumb…
    First of all, the animals that lived a thousand years with Ilhan have no reason to be strong, they cant think, and lived a thousand years without fighting, killing or needing to feed, so they shouldve just become docile
    Second, its EXTREMELY asinine that Liera would lose her powers while fighting a higher existence, and if you wanna excuse it you have to go the other route, where its really asinine that a higher existence can even fight Ilhan on earth, the homeplanet doesnt make a difference, otherwise the higher existence dragon on Dareu shouldve just killed Ilhan

  29. Incompetence Hunter

    Liera’s sacrifice loses any emotional impact because of how dumb it is. First of all, why can’t she fight higher existence? Why can the 6th class fight against Ilhan.

    Secondly, this entire bullshit occurred because Ilhan evolved outside of his fortress. There is absolutely no way he is that dumb. So, this entire sacrifice was unnecessary, and this, has no impact.

    Third of all, this enemy is acting like a retarded PETA dude.
