Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 72: Me, a God!? – 5

Yu IlHan abruptly raised his head; a head-shaking concentration of mana had assaulted him.
Not only that, the monsters in that place seemed to be attracted to that as they lifted their heads up before viciously running towards one point.

“What is this aura? I think it’s super dangerous.”
[Oh my god, an Overflow!](Lita)
[How can it be!](Erta)

Lita and Erta, who noticed that a little earlier than Yu IlHan did, also shouted in shock. Yu IlHan, who realized that the situation was very urgent in any case, ran towards the same direction the monsters were running to and threw his spears to reduce their numbers as much as possible,

However, if he could stop the situation with just that, an Overflow wouldn’t have occurred in the first place.

“Overflow is a phenomenon that occurs when the performance of a Trap of Destruction is too strong, isn’t it! Right now, not to mention Traps of Destructions, the dungeons are breaking down, so how the hell did this happen?”
[I don’t know! Don’t tell me an inactive Trap of Destruction suddenly… No, this doesn’t even make sense!](Lita)

The moment Lita shouted while shaking her head, Yu IlHan thought up of a frightening imagination.

“In this situation, where an enormous amount of monsters were released to a limited area due to broken dungeons, if someone throws several Traps of Destruction at the same place, then wouldn’t it be possible to artificially cause an Overflow?”

Yu IlHan’s estimation was correct. In fact, if an Overflow had occurred in this situation, a Dungeon Wave, there wouldn’t be any other explanation.

[Why would someone… just who!](Erta)
[Traitors……There were more!](Lita)

While Erta was accepting and being shocked at the situation, Lita, having seen through the situation, gritted her teeth.

She knew very well that the traitor last time was just the bottom of the rung. He was only killed since they had no means to find out who was behind him, they were aware that there was a possibility of more traitors being amongst their ranks, so they were cautious. Wasn’t the reason for more angels being dispatched to Earth to prevent situations like this?

The problem was that such situations were happening again as if to laugh at them.
What this proved was very simple. The traitor was deeper amongst their ranks than they thought, and their abilities were incredibly high.

[Why would someone do this? Do they really intend to destroy Earth?](Erta)
[There are a few who might think that. Anyway, for now, solving this Overflow is priority!](Lita)

Lita was right. There was no need to think about anything else right now. Yu IlHan only just ardently ran forward.

“The storm of Susanoo is chasing the monsters!”
“Shit, follow Lord Susanoo! If we don’t then we will all die!”
“Overflow, it’s definitely an Overflow. If all these monsters gather in one place, and if a mutant species appear in this kind of place where the mana concentration is already so high… Shit!”

The Susanoo Army also seemed to realize that the situation was not going well. Some among them had experienced Overflows in other worlds, and in LA a while ago, so they saw through the situation quite correctly.

[Yu IlHan, please hurry up a little more! A little more!](Erta)
“I know, I’m running at full speed right now!”

The location that was presumed to be the center of the Overflow, was around 30km away from where Yu IlHan was fighting. Thinking that it was fortunate that it didn’t happen so far away, Yu IlHan pushed up his gear.

After finding the combination of transcendent regeneration and superhuman strength, it was now possible for him to deploy superhuman strength almost continuously as long as the bloodrink allowed him to. Focusing all the power of his muscles into running, he renewed all his past records.

Now that he could not wield mana, keeping the superhuman strength skill active all the time was a blessing for him.

[It’s dangerous……](Lita)

Lita had become nervous.

[This is too dangerous. The time isn’t good. It’s bad to the point that I’m thinking that this Dungeon Break was planned meticulously beforehand.
The mana concentration that was heightened beyond norm in the Kantou region, and the heightened levels of the monsters according to that, the Dungeon Break that occurred as if to strike the nail on the head, Dungeon Wave, and the gathered strong ability users. All these attributed to increasing the concentration of mana, and they scattered Traps of Destruction to induce an artificial Overflow.
The monsters around here are mostly 2nd class, and perhaps, the monster that will be born at the end of this overflow maybe…. just maybe.](Lita)
“It doesn’t matter what it is.”

While running at full speed, Yu IlHan checked his condition, his skills and his equipment once again.

“I will kill it. Whether it’s 3rd class or 4th class.”

Thinking back to the mage that he ended instantly in the past, Yu IlHan thought that this wouldn’t end easily like that and shook his head.

This situation was completely different to the one last time. The mage was completely off guard, and did not receive the opportunity to bring out his full abilities, and was a mage, that had the lowest defense amongst all the 4th class people out there.

He didn’t know what monster would appear due to this Overflow, but its defense would be on a completely different scale to the mage. Perhaps, its attack power, and its destructive range, too.

However, what difference does that make? Yu IlHan’s humanity enhancement didn’t even bud yet, and the monster would appear right now. So, would Yu IlHan have to give up and run away since it was hard to kill?

Not possible. Simple. If he couldn’t kill it, then Earth would step once towards the path of Destruction, and none, other than Yu IlHan would be able to kill it.

[IlHan, we’ve arrived!]

Yu IlHan ended his thoughts and raised his head up.

That place was truly a spectacle. A violent storm of mana, and the numerous monsters that ran towards it without regard for their lives, the ruined city, and the wandering humans that did not know what to do.

Would it be different if he arrived a little earlier? Would he be able to prevent the appearance of a mutant species if he used all his weapons? These kind of questions were meaningless right now.
The monsters that gathered here all threw their bodies into that storm, and a level more frightening mutant species were appearing in this world.

And, even amongst the mutant species, a huge monster, that absorbed the powers of three Traps of Destruction, appeared.

{Kwaaaaaaaa!}
“Pff.”

After seeing its appearance that showed up with a loudly resounding roar, Yu IlHan ended up laughing. How did it end up like this. What coincidence was this?

“Do you have a spare Ame no Habakiri?”
[No.](Lita)

Lita replied with an absent minded voice. Yu IlHan nodded as if he knew the answer already, and straightened his waist at the front of the giant monster that had eight heads and eight tails.

“Then I can only fight like this.”

The monster that showed itself in front of humanity, looked similar to the monster, Yamata no Orochi, that was told to be slayed by Susanoo in Japanese mythology.

{Kruoooooo!}
“Just what are the principles of a mutant specie being born? Don’t tell me that absurd myth is true?”
[No way, but in this Japanese lands, stories related to Yamata no Orochi is quite a hot issue, no?](Lita)

Through books, through manga, through movies, through games, through anime, through other people – the story of that monster was retold countless times.
The existence of Yamata no Orochi is false, so it is not recorded anywhere, but various media itself was recorded to pass down the false monster’s existence and ability.

[I think it acquired that appearance after absorbing those records. Truly a mutant specie.](Lita)

In fact, Yu IlHan couldn’t care less what it looked like on the outside. It wasn’t like the nickname Susanoo that he had acquired gave him an advantage against it, so it was meaningless.

What was important now, was that it harbored enormous amount of power, befitting of its horrifying appearance.

{Kuwaaaaa!}

Without any signs, it spat out a lump of purple light from its mouth. As it had 8 mouths, there were naturally 8 such lumps. They burned everything that they came into contact with, created craters on the ground, and devoured humans and monsters alike.
Hundreds of lives evaporated in an instant. Truly, an absurd power.

“Shit!”
“Ya, Yamata no Orochi…”
“It’s alright. We have Lord Susanoo with us. The myth is replaying on this land!”
“Dumb things, we will die if we don’t move now! The enemy isn’t only just Orochi!”

Yamata no Orochi was just the head of the mutant species. The mutant species that appeared as a result of this Overflow wasn’t just itself. Huge snakes, lizards, and fish that walked on two legs… they all had strong power.

“D, don’t tell me they are all 3rd class?”
“Not all, but some are, 3rd class.”
“Fuck, how are we supposed to kill them!”

Even the people who did well against several hundred high level monsters had now fallen into panic.

This was in a completely different scale than the ones they had seen until now. They were having a hard time against those who just passed level 50, and now, the minimum level of those monsters were 90. There were even tens of 3rd class monsters as well.

{Kroooooaaaaaaaaaaaar!}

Orochi spat out lumps of purple light again. Since the humans had fallen into panic due to seeing so many high level monsters, these purple lumps were a disaster for them. Moreover, the time it took to recharge those set of 8 lumps wasn’t even that long either. If this was a game, the creators were making a level 30 challenge a hell mode boss!

Moreover, those lumps of purple light didn’t end with just a direct attack, and scattered flames of purple light everywhere. The ability to make the entire battlefield a hell of fire; this took the entire battlefield completely away from the human’s side.

“Ah, I’m going crazy, really.”
[No doubt about it. A 4th class.](Erta]

Even Erta absent mindedly spoke as she did not know how to advise him.
She wanted to help him, but angel’s support skill was something that cannot be activated unless in an Abandoned World. She had provided Yu IlHan this subclass since she didn’t want to drag him down, but now it couldn’t even be brought out!

[Aah, really!](Erta)
[No, Erta](Lita)

Just as when Erta was about to explode after holding in her frustration. in other words, just as she was about to go against the rules of the Army of Heaven! Lita restrained her with a calm voice.

[Let’s believe in IlHan and wait.](Lita)
[This is a different situation to when he killed the mage!](Erta)
[And take him and run if it seems like it really wouldn’t work out.](Lita)
[Got it.](Erta)

The two talked about things that other angels would punish them when they heard it, but fortunately, there was no one to hear them right now. The humans weren’t even aware of angels, and the angels were busy worrying about their own partners.
However, Yu IlHan himself, the one that the two angels decided to help survive even with a compensation, was talking stuff like this while looking at Orochi.

“I think I need to attract it.”
[Sorry?](Erta)
[What?](Lita)
“At this rate, everyone other than me will die. I need to attract it to somewhere else then fight it.”

After deciding, he kicked off the ground. In his hands was the pile bunker that had not many more uses left. Of course, with the ammo loaded to the 4th level.

No matter how it was the Yamata no Orochi, it could not see through Yu IlHan’s concealment, and since he had killed monsters endlessly while his deathgod skill was active, he was more than 60% stronger. Counting all abilities that would increase when attacking in surprise, he would be able to deal 3 times the normal damage.
Of course, that wouldn’t be sufficient to kill the Orochi, but it would be enough to make it chase Yu IlHan in berserk mode!

Yu IlHan leaped several hundred meters into the air, but the Orochi still could not notice him.
Even though the enemy was someone that would threaten his life, what was the reason that laughs came out of him? Laughing, Yu IlHan aimed the pile bunker on the central regions othe head. Then kicked off the air using re-leap!

“Here I go, please-look-at-only-me attack!”
[Don’t come up with weird move names at such an important time!](Erta)

At that time, the pile bunker itself got struck in the throat of the Orochi, that was open as it was just after it had shot a magic bullet. The moment Orochi abruptly widened its eyes, Yu IlHan shot the ammo simultaneously as he transferred the weight of the Cross Bag!

{Kroaaaakagagagagak!}

A scream that seemed like it would split apart the Earth, resounded across. The ones that were running away in fear of the Orochi, and the ones fighting against the monsters all staggered due to the enormous vibration.
And they could see – the one that hid until now, and the absolute one that had lead them until now.

Since he couldn’t kill the enemy in a single strike, the long lasting concealment had finally worn off.

“Susanoo.”
“Oh my god, he’s really a human?”
{Khaaaakaga!}

The Orochi’s neck, that was completely done in by the pile bunker, was obliterated into smithereens. The pile bunker ammo that had not lost its power, cut through the Orochi’s neck to its body with several thousands of tons of weight, with a loud ripping sound, before finishing off with an explosion.
While the Orochi roared in pain, Yu IlHan landed on the ground.

“L, Lord Susanoo.”
“Susanoo!”

He knew that the people’s gazes were directed at him, but he intentionally ignored it. To be exact, he had no time to pay attention to them; he had to kick off and run immediately.

{Kuhaaaaaaa!}

Everything was according to Yu IlHan’s plan. Facing an enormous pain, the Orochi chased Yu IlHan with its eyes flipped. Despite the fact that there were many prey around it, it couldn’t help it since its sense of vengeance burned brightly against Yu IlHan, who had destroyed one of its heads.

“Here, follow me!”
{Kruaaaaa!]

Bringing out the maximum power of his superhuman strength, Yu IlHan enhanced his leg muscles, and his speed was really fast to the point that his nickname, Sungdaein Bolt, was not a joke.
Moreover, a bottle of bloodrink was already on Yu IlHan’s mouth, so he was instantly dissolving the fatigue piling up in his body before the superhuman strength even wore off. He would be able to keep his superhuman strength up until the bloodrink ran out!

This was only possible since Yu IlHan’s ability to control his muscles and his skills were rapidly evolving in this rapidly changing, endless crisis.

“Lord Susanoo is……”
“Taking the Orochi to somewhere else.”
“Shit, we need to help him!”
“We can’t even scratch it!”

The Susanoo Army was mostly made up of those that were directly rescued by Yu IlHan. They naturally wanted to help him, but realistically, their power was too weak.
Moreover, the monsters other than the orochi were charging towards them. Now, they had a hard time looking after their own bodies.

Meanwhile, the clans realized that this was a good opportunity to get them known, while at the same time, being a crisis where their clan’s fate was on the line.
Rather, some of them even thought that they should be the ones to kill the Orochi.

“I need to sever the Orochi’s neck.”
“Mirae.”
“I know. we need to kill them first!’

Kang MiRae made a spear of lightning above his staff and threw it. The current strongest mage of humanity, the Empress’, spear ripped apart a few monsters charging towards the Lightning God clan, but she couldn’t be satisfied with just that.

“I can’t even kill a 3rd class monster in a single strike. Even though this was after investing a quarter of my mana!”
“YuNa, buff MiRae.”
“Okay, oppa. But I can’t bring out my beeest.”

Na YuNa grumbled while giving Kang MiRae a buff immediately with her holy power. Her latter words weighed on Kang HaJin’s mind so he asked back.

“Can’t bring out your best? At such an important time?”
“I need to buff IlHan lateeeerr.”
“What?”
“If we don’t kill the Orochi here right now, then the Earth is doomed. But no one other than him can kill it, right? So I need to help him!”

Whether this was due to her lack of self-respect, or overflowing self-respect, Na YuNa was declaring quite firmly. Declaring that no one other than Yu IlHan would be able to accomplish it, she dissed all others, and brought herself up as if it was natural for her to help.

Anyone who heard it would get angry. Kang HaJin being the same.

“No one other than Mr. Yu IlHan can kill it? Fuck, I know that much.”

From the moment the name Susanoo got famous on the SNS, the Lightning God clan also suspected that the identity of Susanoo might be Yu IlHan.

However, his battle methods were too different from the ones they had seen until now, and moreover, since his power was too overwhelming, they didn’t want to believe it. More like, they denied that fact with all their heart.

However, moments ago, when he destroyed one of the heads of the Orochi that was basically playing around with humans, Kang HaJin couldn’t not accept it. On Earth, no, amongst the strong people of all the worlds, the only one that used a weapon like that was him alone.

“Why is it you?”

Kang MiRae asked Na YuNa after killing monsters with a level stronger lightning spear after she was buffed by Na Yuna.
She was quite upset when she heard that no one other than Yu IlHan could kill the Orochi, so her expression had become quite sharp.

“Well, that’s because I’m the Earth’s number one buffer.”

Na YuNa declared shamelessly. Her endless pride was extremely similar to her friend, Kang MiRae.

“So let’s clean this place up quickly and go help IlHaaaan.”
“Okay. I need to take a place too. It’s a good opportunity to make him owe me.”
“You girls really like him, don’t you?”
“Shut up, oppa. Just defend the front!”

Like how the Lightning God clan was defending against the monsters, Metal Knights and Magia vaguely realized that they should defend against these lizard hybrids.
No, instead, with the appearance of these absurd monsters, the situation was inducing their cooperation, which seemed like it would never happen.

“Leader of Metal Knights, Michael Smithson.”
“Lord of Magia, Carina Malatesta.”

The man with the bad impression, who had resolved to kill Yu IlHan, and a noble-looking lady, that seemed like she would have never worked throughout her life, joined hands.

Both Metal Knights and Magia thought that they would only be running away after losing some manpower, but after the absurd monsters like the Orochi came out, they realized that this wasn’t a problem of them running away, but one that concerned the fate of Earth.

No matter how foolish and idiotic they were, they knew that in this situation, they should put their lives on the line and overcome this crisis, rather than leaving the Earth to doom.

Moreover, they coincidentally had what their counterpart lacked; Metal Knights had absurdly sturdy defense, and Magia had absurdly powerful magic.

“Can you really hold out? They are strong. They are on a completely different level to the ones that appeared until now on this archipelago.”
“Hmph, they don’t even itch me.”

In fact, they hurt like hell, but if they didn’t hold out here, then Earth would really be doomed.

“Please take care of us.”
“Fuu, likewise.”

Both Michael and Carina were saying ‘Fuck, fuck’ within their minds, but they formed a party calmly on the outside. This was the moment two of the most well off clans had merged their powers into one.

“If you got into a party, then fight already, fuckers!”

And Kang HaJin, who was splendidly getting beaten up at the front lines with the mutant species, shouted. It was a shout with a soul.


Author’s notes
1. Thanks for the wait, the boss fight!
2. Since the story is centered around Yu IlHan, I cannot erase the impression that the angels are powerless, and in fact, they actually are, but after this fight, I plan to explain about their situation a little. You might understand a little…. Hm, actually no. Earth is holding out since Yu IlHan’s super strong!
3. Like in this chapter, Yamata no Orochi is a monstrous beast that was told to be slayed by Susanoo in Shinto myth. To categorize, he is an ‘original’, mutated one though!
4. Ame no Habakiri is the sword that was passed onto Susanoo from Izanagi to slay the Orochi. However, this sword is broken during the fight with Orochi, and the sword that Susanoo acquires to replace it is….(T/N: Author leaves it hanging here… if you want to know, then it’s the “Heavenly Cloud Gathering Sword”, a.k.a Ama no Murakumo no Tsurugi)
5. I was re reading through this chapter but I didn’t like it so much. After several edits, a disaster where 3 chapters were made into 2 had occurred. The fact that the quantity of this chapter exploded is all due to that. I couldn’t separate it…. T^T
6.I  will answer some of your questions.
–1. The angels requested Yu IlHan to make the Traps of Destruction since the ones they made didn’t work, but how does that Trap of Destruction work so well! (T/N: The ones that created the Overflow) That’s because the Traps of Destruction that Yu IlHan had made is resonating and helping the activation of the Traps of Destruction. This came out before, right?
–2. Even though it’s obvious that they’ll get insulted if they don’t cooperate, why do they only gather up in clans? Humans are originally like that. They all act on their own, and if they succeed, they are deemed heroes, and if they fail, they are deemed losers. Of course, they are the latter. There are too many instances in history so it’s hard to line them up here…
–3. How do people follow the concealed Yu IlHan? They don’t, they follow the scenes of destruction and think that “Oh! Lord Susanoo his heading that way!”.


Translator’s notes
Erta is so nice… I can type her name with just the left hand.
On the other hand… this chapter is around 50% longer…
So bear it for the 3 chapter/1 week hiatus…

        This “god” guy has been lookin’ rather suspicious. I think he might be a cult leader.

        Maybe he is trying to take out the person that is going to end up taking his job.

    Well how would have known… A 4th class boss monster appeared. Well, all I see is records for leveling, new materials for weapons and armor, and better rewards from heaven XD! By the way, does anyone happen to know how Susanoo killed Orochi? I feel it may be related. Also he may make a new sword out of the Orochi give it the same name as Susanoo’s other sword the author mentioned. Is this a possibility?

    Thanks for the chapters! Helped ease the withdrawal symptoms slightly. Orz

            That’s really a waste though… Well, I suppose it was never mentioned whether the boss’ blood rink is for recovery or for lethal poison. Sleep potion? Lol.

          2. Jonathan Hurd

            I originally thought it would be poisonous but I have no clue if the monster meat/blood is just poisonous to humans or to everyone. It might work as a sleeping potion or it could make you refreshed. I am kind of curious if it affects people without the max resting skill differently.

          3. Noviendo Tria A (@NeoMusash1)

            dun think so.. almost forgot the rest of the lore “susanoo use 8 gate and each gate have sake as bait orochi got drunk and he slashed the head” so in ilhan story the 8 gate is pillar and sake is human bait ??

            and about monster loot if people eat or drink prob died from monster poison.. ilhan can safely drink it cause he have extreme poison resist

          4. Extasse

            Do you think his spear works on Orochi though? I mean the extra 150% buff when fighting against dragons. I wonder what he’s going to do about the extra sword Susanoo found in the tail. Is he going to melt and fuse it into the spear? Lol
            (I got hyper due to the one more week of waiting)

  2. Cloud

    Are the other worlds that the returnees went too all in their “first cataclysm” stage? Because at the beginning it was implied that 2nd class was akin to a nobles status and 3rd class were the nations top fighters. But here we have the MC instakilling 2nd class monsters and being able to fight against “strong” 3rd class monsters. Heck, he’s even to the point where he’s trying to kill a 4th class. And this is all during Earth’s first cataclysm!!!!

    Honestly I’m just confused where the power ratio’s are supposed to be and how rare are the stronger classes.

    Thanks for the chapter!

      Should just get used to inconsistencies in this novel. Like how angels “can’t” do anything on Earth – Ilhan had to craft traps of destructions cause the ones heaven sent were broken or some shit and angels weren’t allowed to fix them, yet traitor angels can just throw around perfectly working ones. It’s like there are rules yet nothing happens when you break them. Or how at first the timeline for monster progression was like at least a year for 2nd class monsters, then 10 yrs for 3rd class, then it was shortened to 3 months for god knows what reason, and now suddenly there’s 4th class monsters around. If it was originally going to take decades for a 4th class monster to appear, just because a few dungeons overflowed and there’s a bunch of weak humans around shouldn’t give enough mana for a 4th class to spawn – such a retarded explanation. But ignoring all the details, this novel is still a good mindless read.

        You shouldn’t call them inconsistencies but rather call them points you didn’t think well enough.
        Regarding the trap of destructions that were thrown, Ilhan made several and gave them to the angels to spread out, so definitely some landed in the hands of the traitors and they didn’t set them but kept them to induce the dungeon break by overloading some with too many monsters.
        And regard to how strong the monsters gotten and how rapid the progression of strength compared to humans are, this was hinted out during the first few chapters of the series, where Ilhan was the sole person on planet earth for thousands of years. Humans were sent off for 10 years on different planets, but the mana accumulation on earth for the monsters that were left behind were at 10000 years. Because everything was in a static state beside Ilhan and Lita, monsters couldn’t do anything then, but the moment time resumed, everything SNAFU.
        There are inconsistencies, but in essence, it is like how the first chapter stated, God done goofed.

        1. firelight777

          Not so sure if God actually goofed anymore, I feel like he purposely made things this way to raise up Ilhan for some reason that’ll probably be explained later (probably related to his concealment). Hell, maybe the cataclysms were made by God to search out for someone like Ilhan that has that special ability.

            I don’t know I find it funnier that God accidentally overlooked Yu Ilhan. I guess we’ll know when we actually see God, but from the fact that there are traitors and enemies of Heaven I feel like God being Omniscient in this story is probably not true…

          2. João Freitas

            it was never said that “God” was omniscient
            This god is just a higher level existence thats it
            lita and erta said a lot of times that god isn’t all powerful, he is just the leader of this particular faction of beings

      2. Jonathan Hurd

        Okay so a few answers to your post Yijunding. The first part about the Traps of Destruction. The reason Yu Ilhan was asked to make them was because the animals had gotten used to the scent of God’s magic and mana since they were frozen by it for 10k years. That is why they needed Yu Ilhan to make traps since his wouldn’t have Heavens sent and would just smell like Humans. The Angels could make more traps but that wouldn’t solve anything.

        After Yu Ilhan’s traps were thrown they then affected all the other Traps. So all the formerly heaven smelling ones were affected by Yu Ilhan. Therefore the traitor doesn’t need to throw traps made by Yu Ilhan. The effect of Yu Ilhan’s traps already changed the setup of deployed traps. So the traitor can throw traps of his own making now.

        For the timeline of 2nd class and third class monsters appearing… The point is that Earth is outside of the usual timeline of worlds. There are a few reasons for that which the story goes over. One is the the 10k years versus the 10 years it was supposed to be. So the animals have greatly evolved far past humanity. The second is just how many worlds the Earth has become connected to. It has been said that some of the Dungeons have been connecting to other worlds like with Reta Kariha’s.

        For the fourth class monster appearing. To me it makes a decent amount of sense why that would happen when three traps of destruction are placed together and all the other dungeons on Japan have been released. Add to that the fact that all the strongest Ability Users of Earth are in Japan and have been constantly releasing mana and it makes sense that a Fourth Class can be born. Especially since most of the monsters absorbed into the three traps were 2nd class to start with.

        Two traps together got Reta Kariha who was level 150 and the Troll third class boss. That wasn’t even an overflow which gives rise to mutants which are also stronger than their usual counterparts. Also there wasn’t nearly as many monsters or mana to be absorbed for the Grand Canyon portal. It would honestly be more questionable if a fourth class doesn’t pop out with all the factors buffing it.

        I’ll try to explain the way I see it ^ ^ (not guaranteed to be true)
        The Angels aren’t able to do anything on Earth, either because of the difference in energy levels or because God made it so. If this inhibitor wasn’t there then Earth would instantly be destroyed. Think about it. It would take less time for 10
        higher existences to wipe out a third of the population of a world in its 1st stages of the great cataclysm before the Angels could react. The difference in strength between 3rd class and 4th class is already so high, how powerful would a 5th class really be at full strength? All they need to do is use guerilla warfare on a few worlds and they would be annhialated

        The traps of destruction problem is explained by the author above…

        The timeline for the progression of monsters is unexpected for the Angels. I’ll compare this to a dam. They stop the water for a thousand years and suddenly they let the water flow. There’s so much water built up (volume of water, pressure etc.) that it would cause a flow. I live in Thailand and I know first hand what happens when one does that. The dam bursts. The increase in mana is going to flow at an absurd rate to make up for those 1000 years.
        Not to mention, the traitor Angels seem to have had a hand in this so it wouldn’t be long before the 2nd cataclysm either. If two traps of destruction can get a 2nd class trolls and scorpions, 3rd class troll boss and the death god Reta back when the 1st class monsters are the norm, I don’t see how a 4th class wouldn’t appear with 3 traps of destructions and 2nd-3rd class as the norm.
        Most of the mana shouldn’t be coming from humans shooting puny spells but the natural mana in Earth which is stupidly high and the traps of destruction, which contains condensed mana as well.
        What do you think?

          For the angels not participating actively in worlds struggles. I would say the big reason for that is because honestly the angels man power is limited. The story has already said that heaven is short handed. They are looking after and trying to help multiple worlds. Add in that they are actively fighting traitors, breakers, and undead. Angels need earth and the other worlds to gain self sufficiency. If they solved all of earths problems themselves then earth would forever need them there. The challenges aren’t going to get easier just harder as time goes on. If Angels solve the first trial for people then those people won’t get stronger to fight the second, third, or fourth trial.

          I would also say where do you think Heaven recruits its new angels from? They said Angels are 5th steppers and some have hinted that Yu Ilhan might be able to ascend to that. I think part of the reason for Heaven trying to raise strong humanoid races is to reinforce themselves and add to their numbers.

          For what is happening in this current situation. This is a situation completely out of any of heavens predictions and requires more direct interference than they are used to, but the problem is bureaucracy. It was already shown that the angels have meetings to decide how to act in earth and this situation has come too suddenly. Earthlings could handle the Dungeon Break, but this Overflow is way too much and just happened out of no where. By the point word is sent back and discussed Earth would be destroyed before Heaven could decide on a course of action.

          For the second part, I like the Damn analogy. I think it might be partly that and partly just how many worlds Earth was connected to.

          My feelings on why a fourth class would pop out of this Overflow are the same as yours. Two traps of destruction together when there was only first class monsters made a third class troll and Reta Kari’ha. Then three traps and all 2nd class makes sense to get a Fourth Class especially since its an overflow and mutations happen.

          On the mana concentration I would say what is happening in Japan is the Strongest of humanity and thousands if not millions of 2nd class monsters are constantly fighting. Considering only Yu Ilhan really fights without mana then I feel like all the attacks going around would naturally be releasing mana into the air. Add to that all the broken traps of destruction which probably dumped their mana out and that is where the concentration is coming from.

    but but but… we got a bossfight coming up!!!! we won’t survive the hiatus!!!

    all jokes aside, good luck on your exams hope and you succeed so you can get to my favorite series of the moment 😛

      Considering hes in serious fight mode I’m betting the Full plate armor and the Secretive Reapers Robes.

      What I would find funny is if he has the full plate helmet, then under it the Wolf Skull hat, and then finally an ironman mask.

    wow Yamata no Orochi come out!! that was really interesting turn of event 😀

    btw, the MC still have a lot of grenade right ? why not he used it to mass kill the low lv monster first, rather than amazed by the appearace of Orochi?, it would only take a few second to throw it all right ?

    thx for the chapter ^^

        I also think there aren’t really any low levels in this batch. They said the lowest were 90’s. So more likely than not they would survive and that would risk undoing Ilhan’s stealth and mean giving up his surprise attack on the Orochi. I would also say if he doesn’t attack the Orochi immediately that thing might single handedly kill all the humans.

        What I want to see is Ilhan take a bunch of grenades and stuff it into one of the Orochi’s mouths, lol.

    So remembering the last Dungeon Outbreak in LA. That one didn’t end til Yu Ilhan killed the boss who was distorting the environment. Will this Dungeon Outbreak also not stop spurting out monsters til Yu Ilhan kills the Orochi?

      That would be a reasonable explanation as to why he just ignored the monsters, aside from the people already present too. Though I have a feeling the boss monster dying being the cause of the dungeon outbreak stopping probably isn’t related. Just that it was killed one of the last.

    I tried justifying the author’s often criticized ‘Yu Ilhan weighs more so he falls faster’.
    Weight= Mass*Gravity
    In this case, his weight was increased through magical means. Not through an increase in mass or density. This would mean that the acceleration due to gravity does not remain constant (9.8) since it is weight (force downwards) per unit mass and would in fact increase. This is due to magic so it is possible.
    To conclude, since weight is increased but mass remains unchanged, acceleration due to gravity MUST increase and therefore Yu Ilhan gets to fall faster using weight transfer.

    Can anyone with knowledge in Physics judge this theory? I stopped learning physics after my IGs.
    It would be really great if this could somehow stop people from using that one chapter to point out the author’s lack of research and knowledge. I don’t like them calling him stupid and saying this book is sh*t just for that.
    Thanks~

      So I do like the theory but the problem I can see is with how you disconnect Weight and Mass. Weight to my knowledge is Mass * Gravity. Yu Ilhan isn’t really effecting the Gravity of Earth so that would mean when he attaches the weight in his cross bag he is attaching the Mass of all the objects to the Pile Driver. The formula that I was forced to remember in Physics that relates to this was….

      Force = Mass * Acceleration.

      In this Yu Ilhan’s Acceleration if we ignore air resistance(we’ll come back to this part) then it never really changes from 9.81 meters per seconds squared.

      Yu Ilhan’s mass has suddenly sky rocketed but his Acceleration has not changed. What this means is that the force then needs to change. To make this simpler I’ll move it so we have Acceleration by itself….

      Acceleration = Force divided by Mass.

      So Mass has risen massively, but we Acceleration is still the same constant 9.81. That means to what must happen is the Force has to rise just as much as the mass to keep it that way. That is the big advantage to what Yu Ilhan is doing with that falling tactic.

      Now here is where the problem lies for me personally. Yu Ilhan is jumping hundreds of Meters into the air and then free falling. To me it should be impossible that Wind Resistance has no effect since he is falling in Earths Atmosphere. In a vacuum it is true that a feather and a bowling ball will fall to the ground at the same rate. Yu Ilhan however is not falling in such therefore there is such a thing as wind drag. Now I will be upfront that my Physics lessons never actually got around to this part and it is a pain in the ass to understand when I tried looking it up. However I feel the increase of Mass Yu Ilhan put on would help him penetrate through the air faster.

      Also another aspect of wind resistance is Surface Area affected. Its why Hawks pull their wings in to dive at their prey. So one way Yu Ilhan could speed himself up is straightening himself as closely as possible to a pole when falling. That would up his speed.

        If his mass does increase as you say, that would mean his density had also increased. This would affect his body in various ways such as making it tougher. This basically means an increase in defense along with the weight is given. Also, in what way would mass have been attached? Add extra atoms that would reduce mobility? Or increase the number of cells? Both seem unlikely to me. Considering that he transfers all the weight from the cross bag, that would mean that all the monster corpses would disappear and be reconstructed into the same type of material as the pile bunker. It’s unlikely for the cross bag’s weight transfer to be so complicated. Also adding to the fact that this would mean he can gain more stronger material by transferring the mass of useless corpses and reconstructing them into more useful material then melting it. That’s why I concluded that mass remains constant and weight is the sole factor increased. The acceleration of gravity would only remain constant because mass increases proportionally to weight. But if it isn’t? The acceleration due to gravity should theoretically increase as well. It’s possible since this is done using magic and all (probably?).
        This would certainly up his acceleration by several hundred times.
        The difference between our opinions is mainly the mass increase or not so what do you think of my opinion?

          Hmm, so after some thought, I have a slightly weird theory on how the Cross Bag can increase weight without adding Atoms. So remembering back to some of my basic lessons of Atoms… To be a specific type they have to have a set number of Protons and Electrons. You can’t add or subtract from that total without changing what kind of atom it is or making new ones. There is however a third part of the atoms Neutrons. The Neutrons are also the heaviest aspect of Atoms and what usually decides mass. There are also a lot of things called Isotopes which are atoms with a set number of Electrons and Protons, but a different number of Neutrons than the standard. So what the bag could be doing is mass producing Neutrons and attaching it to a bunch of atoms to greatly increase the weight.

          (Please note the above theory is completely pulled out of my ass and is just a hard way of avoiding saying its magic and so it can make things heavier because its magic, lol.)

          For density, I am personally not really equipped with enough information to tell if things having the weight added would lead them to being more dense and increase its hardness. It could be a fun use of it definitely, but my understanding of physics isn’t good enough to argue on that point. I do like the idea though and will give that one more thought.

          As far as the effects of gravity on objects its basically 9.81 meters per seconds squared unless you can get to the mass of a planetary body. At that point you start exerting your own gravitational pull on earth back so it differs, but I don’t think Yu Ilhan’s kills total weight has quite reached that point yet thankfully.

          Excluding the Planetary Body case everything is pulled at that 9.81 meters per seconds squared by earth. It doesn’t really matter how much mass you have we’re all affected the same way. That 9.81 is a constant that helps us calculate weight. Our weight is basically our mass * 9.81. So the math kind of goes….

          We have 1 Yu Ilhan * 9.81 m/s squared = 9.81 Yu Ilhan’s weight

          If Yu Ilhan has filled his bag with the equivalent of a nine hundred and ninty nine Yu Ilhan’s then we get….

          1000 Yu Ilhan mass * 9.81 m/s Squared = 9,810 Yu Ilhans weight + Cross Bag

          Another way to write it if we want to keep the monsters and Yu Ilhan’s weights seperated and then add them together at the end would be….

          1 Yu Ilhan mass* 9.81 m/s squared + 999 Yu Ilhan Mass* 9.81 m/s Squared = Total weight

          9.81 Weight of Yu Ilhan + 9,800.19 Monster Mass = 9810 total weight

            Pretty sure adding neutrons produces different isotopes though, which results in different physical and chemical properties of the atom. Lol. There’s also a limit to the amount of neutrons one can fit in… I guess you squish the mass into the protons, neutrons and electrons? Somehow… Don’t know much about splitting the atom lol. Guess it’ll somehow make sense if that happens XD
