Previous Part 1/3:

※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※ ※

It was a murky voice.
A sound so indistinct that Subaru couldn’t tell whether it was a man or a woman’s.
Compared to a voice passing through a voice changer or one muffled by a cloth, it was more ambiguous and opaque, as if obscured by some invisible power operating on his perceptions.

But even so, the instant Subaru heard those words―― those whispers of love, he instinctively understood who the shadow before him was. And shuddered.

Thinking back, Subaru had already vaguely sensed it before coming out of the Tomb.
The feeling of the thick Miasma stinging his skin. The sight of the Sanctuary submerged in shadows. The stifling pressure engulfing his surroundings. And the world that fundamentally lost its life.
It was every bit a reenactment of the time-stopped reality brought about by the uttering of the forbidden words, where Subaru met the Witch.
That is to say, the one standing before him was,

[Subaru: Wh..y……!?]

[???: ――――]

There was no answer. But there was also no doubt that it was right in front of him.
Subaru twitched his fingers, checked that he was still breathing, and confirmed that time hadn’t stopped. The second-hand of the world was definitely ticking as it should. And yet the Witch was standing right before him.

Faced with a threat beyond his imaginations, Subaru’s mind was painted over with complete white.
The oath which he had sworn only moments before, to uncover the details no matter what happens without letting a single second go to waste, all vanished in the face of that shock.
So unexpected was Subaru’s encounter with the Witch at this point in time.

His throat rapidly drying up, Subaru’s body stiffened as he forgot how to breathe. Bound by the overwhelming pressure, Subaru turned as rigid as a frog being stared down by a snake.
Becoming immobile now would certainly only make the situation worse. But, even understanding this, Subaru’s limbs gave no indication of obeying the blaring alarms.

It was a matter far beyond what Subaru’s heart and mind could handle.
Subaru’s heart did not falter, and his mind was burning with the need to do something, but his body and the deep-rooted faculties governing it only calmly looked on.
Because――regardless of whether he moved or not, the result would be exactly the same.

[???: ――――]

There was no hostility emanating from the shadow before his eyes. Nor did it seem to have any intention to hurt him.
But that is not to say that it was uninterested in Subaru.
Quite the opposite.

[???: ――――]

The entity before him was instilling him with so much interest that it was sending chills running down his spine.
It was blind, obsessive passion, overwhelming to the point of making him wonder why, binding him so tightly as if to never let him escape.
――The shadow had no interest in anything other than Subaru.

In that shadow, there was only Subaru. Only Subaru. Only Subaru only Subaru only Subaru only Subaru only Subaru only Subaru only Subaru only Subaru only Subaru only Subaru only Subaru only Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru Subaru――

{???: ――I love you I love you I love you}

That voice echoed, spiraling in his mind.
His thoughts were thrown into chaos, unable to even recognize what he was seeing in front of him. Was he standing, or sitting? Was he breathing? Was he conscious? Was he alive? Or was he dead? He wasn’t sure. He wasn’t sure. He was becoming less and less sure.

A fingertip reached for him.
The surrounding shadows rose, expanding to envelop Subaru’s body from all directions.
He had no strength left to oppose it. No reason to oppose it. Resist, don’t resist, let himself be swallowed, what will happen then? It was too tiresome to think about. And――

{???: I love you I love you I love you――}

[????: Quit fuckin’ around KkkrrraaAAAHHH――!!]

――The next instant, terrifying destruction descended on the space between Subaru and the shadow.
Inches from his eyes, the impact crashed into the shadow, shattering the invisible ground in a swirl of darkness as it sent Subaru flying backwards.

[Subaru: uUoOOaa――!?]

Tumbling while being bumped by hard objects all over, Subaru finally came to a stop when his whole body was soaked in shadow. Giving his head a shake, his rigid body and thoughts simultaneously broke free.
With the noise filling his mind somewhat clearing up, and despite the lingering heaviness that felt like his head was stuffed with sand, the weight had considerably lightened.
Spitting out the mud in his mouth while looking back towards the direction he tumbled from, Subaru’s eyes widened at the sight.

[Garfiel: Can’t get much worse than this, oy. Can y’move or not?]

With his back to Subaru, the person facing against the shadow snapped impatiently.
His stature was rather small for a man. With short, golden hair, and a rude way of speaking. He kept his posture low, readied for combat, with his legs drawn back and his fangs bared in caution.

[Subaru: Why……would y…me… Garfiel……]

[Garfiel: Hah? Ain’t time t’be jokin’ around, can’t y’see what’s happenin’ right now?]

Answering Subaru’s voice that was still trembling in shock, Garfiel sounded somewhat annoyed. While keeping his eyes fixed on the shadow in front of him, bit by bit, Garfiel edged closer to Subaru,

[Garfiel: I’m gonna grab yer collar ’n jump. Might break yer neck, so pull up some backbone n’ bear it]

[Subaru: I don’t have the kind of special characteristic where I can use backbone to increase health-points in my neck――uwa!?]

Right in the middle of his rebuttal, Garfiel dived down with incredible speed, and, true to his word, hoisted Subaru up by the collar, prompting a strangled [Uegh!]. But, before Subaru could complain,

[Subaru: ――――!]

――The ground swelled up, and the shadow exploded.
Waves rolled out from the detonated shadow, lunging towards Subaru and Garfiel, threatening to crush them. In an instant, the surrounding shadows joined into the wave, prompting Garfiel to click his tongue as his feet sank into the black mire while trying to back away.

[Garfiel: Agh, fuck! Divine Protection o’ Earth Spirits can’t work when the ground’s like this――!]

[Subaru: Garfiel, my legs are sinking too!]

[Garfiel: The whole damn place’s like this! T’s what they meant by “If yer bad the Witch gonna be comin’” ain’t it!!]

Being dragged along, the parts of Subaru’s limbs that were touching the ground were beginning to be swallowed by the shadow. It was an entirely different sensation from sinking into water or mud.
Warm, tender, and smooth, it was like silk trying to wrap around him and enshroud his body within. In a more peaceful setting, he might even have thought that it’d be rather nice to be embraced by that feeling.
But in these terrifying circumstances, he’d have to reject that idea.

[Garfiel: Tch, don’t bite yer tongue!!]

With a snort, Garfiel scanned over his surroundings and shouted.
He bent his knees, and lightly leaped his sinking body off the ground. With the shadow tangling to his feet, the jump only managed a few meters, but, extending his legs the instant they touched the ground, he leaped again, and again, and again,

[Garfiel: There, we, are――!]

In a world concealed by night, Garfiel beautifully leaped his way to an area populated by buildings. Literally kicking his foot into a wall, he leaped up once again, and, landing on a roof, he tossed Subaru down with a sigh.
Being tossed like that, Subaru quickly grabbed onto some shingles so he wouldn’t slide off, before glancing up at the side of the panting Garfiel’s face―― faintly obscured by the darkness,

[Subaru: Th-thanks for saving me……!]

[Garfiel: Huh? Is that the face of someone feelin’ thankful? Y’got a problem with me? Oy!]

[Subaru: Just something I haven’t gotten over yet…… and.. I never thought you’d come to save me]

[Garfiel: How heartless did y’think I am? If y’got a problem with me savin’ ya, feel free to jump right back into that shadow if y’want]

Subaru tersely replied [No thank you] to Garfiel’s retort, and sighed.
Garfiel looked away, and Subaru, watching him from behind, felt a flood of complex emotions flowing through his chest.

There was the incomprehensible situation as well, but the biggest reason for this was why did Garfiel choose to save him. Before this, Subaru had considered him the greatest obstacle in the Sanctuary and a target of his resentment on par with Roswaal himself.
Although he was aware that the change in situation must have caused this change in behavior, the complete reversal nonetheless left Subaru unsure how to react.

But, paying no attention to Subaru’s internal confusion, Garfiel only gazed down towards the ground with a bitter expression. Clicking his sharp canine teeth, [This ‘s bad……], he muttered under his breath,

[Garfiel: This goes without sayin’, but, doesn’t look like it’s gonna let us off]

Sliding down to Garfiel’s side, Subaru timidly peeked off of the roof.
Witnessing the sight before his eyes, an [u……] inadvertently slipped from his lips. The Sanctuary had transformed into a sea of shadow, with its majority swallowed by the pitch blackness, depriving him of all sense of height and perspective.
But even within that darkness, there was an even darker, writhing figure lurking at the center of the whirling shadows, inching closer at a crawling pace.

It was the one who just tried to swallow Subaru and Garfiel into the shadows, the one who flooded the Sanctuary under a sea of shade. It was――

[Subaru: Garfiel… You have any idea what that is?]

[Garfiel: I got “It’s exactly what it looks like”, “Ain’t no chance it ain’t what I think it is”, and “It’d be goddamn wishful thinkin’ t’say that ain’t what that is”. Which one y’wanna go with?]

[Subaru: Does which one even matter? They’re pretty much the same thing… Oy, you’re being way calmer in front of this thing than I th……]

Before he could finish his sentence, Subaru stopped when he saw the expression on the side of Garfiel’s face.
Honestly, despite harboring some complicated feelings about how Garfiel saved him, Subaru was nonetheless calmly organizing the situation in his head.
Among them, was why Garfiel, who showed such displeasure at the scent of the Witch――and had turned hostile towards Subaru just because he picked up the scent from his body, was not losing his composure when the source of the scent was right before him.
And that was why, just when he was about to ask―― Subaru dropped the subject when he caught a glimpse of his face.

[Garfiel: What’d y’just say?]

Garfiel uttered, gazing down with his bloodshot eyes. Subaru might just be imagining this, but Garfiel’s fangs seemed to be growing longer.
Anger. Rage. Wrath. Fury. His pupils had turned into slits, and one could see the pure-red emotions churning within. How could anyone call that calm?
At the same time, Subaru remembered that there was something he had to ask.

[Subaru: ――Garfiel. Th……Ram and the others, what happened to them?]

[Garfiel: …………]

[Subaru: When I came out of the Tomb, the Sanctuary was already submerged in the shadow. You seem to be alright and lively… so what about the others……?]

[Garfiel: ……in the shadow]

Subaru’s repeated attempts at denial only received this cruel reply.
Hearing Subaru gulp down his breath, Garfiel grunted with a tinge of remorse,

[Garfiel: When we noticed somethin’ was off, the ground’s already turned into th’shade. If Ram hadn’t blown me away with her wind, I woulda been swallowed too]

[Subaru: ……and Ram’s swallowed just like that? And Lewes, and Otto?]

[Garfiel: Aah, yeah. Granny ‘n the noisy lil’bro, all’n one go]

Looking down at the strange writhing of the undulating shadow, Subaru’s thoughts couldn’t help but take a pessimistic turn in regards to their chances of survival after being swallowed.
If they were being imprisoned in some alternate dimension, then there might still be hope. But, judging from the sensation of touching that shadow, it would be a far too optimistic possibility.

[Subaru: Wh-what is this, seriously, this…… why would that thing suddenly…….!]

Elsa, Great Rabbit, Garfiel.
He had only just sealed his resolve to repulse the threats facing the Sanctuary and the Mansion, to face down all obstacles and obtain the perfect future no matter the cost.
And yet, just when that resolve was sealed, this incomprehensible thing washed it all away.
Why on earth did this thing burst out all of a sudden?

[Subaru: Garfiel…… what happened to Emilia?]

[Garfiel: ――――]

[Subaru: I couldn’t find Emilia in the Tomb. ……Was she, swallowed, too?]

[Garfiel: ――――]

Noticing that something was wrong when she woke, Emilia must have ran out of the Tomb.
After all, if she saw the Sanctuary being swallowed by shadow, there was no way she would just stand by and watch. She would have jumped in to save anyone she could with no regard for her own safety, and――

[Subaru: If the shadow…… then, she……!]

[Garfiel: After swallowin’ Ram ‘n the others, the shadow went into the Sanctuary and drank everythin’ up. I chased after it and landed a few blows but it all did jack shit. Then the thing turned back all o’ a sudden, I followed it, and there’s that]

And that led to what happened just now, it seems.
The shadow was ravaging the Sanctuary, but when it sensed Subaru coming out of the Tomb, it immediately turned around. Then the shadow’s objective was Subaru, after all.

An all-devouring shadow. Bearing whispers of love. And overwhelming power.
Its identity went without saying. But,

[Subaru: Why the hell is the Witch of Envy here……!!]

[Garfiel: Ain’t the time to be askin’ that, oy]

While Subaru wrenched out these words, beside him, a battle-hungry smile emerged on Garfiel’s face. Taking care not to lose his balance, Subaru stood up as well, clenching his teeth as he locked his gaze onto the same thing as Garfiel.

A great mass of whirling shadow surrounded the building they were using as their foothold.
Everything caught in the cyclone’s range was swallowed. Earth and structure alike were stripped away and forced into its swirling orbit.

[Subaru: Uu, ooOOAAAHH――!]

It was like a great tsunami or a large-scale flood carrying houses along with its current.
Experiencing the bizarre sensation of supposedly massless shadows uprooting the building beneath his feet, Subaru did all he could not to be flung off of the roof.
He tried, but that didn’t solve the fundamental problem at all.

[Garfiel: Tch, I’m jumpin’ again, grab on!]

[Subaru: ――――!]

Quickly grabbing onto the crouching Garfiel, they escaped the floating rooftop along with Garfiel’s leap. Shooting out like a bullet without regards for target, they plunged right into a flock of trees, snapping branches on the way before slamming into a trunk.

[Garfiel: Ghagh――!]

Punching his arm into the trunk, with that inelegant gesture, Garfiel managed to stop himself from falling into the shadows. Subaru, who was clinging to his shirt, took hold of a branch and shifted himself over, maintaining his posture that way.
And just when they were finally allowed to catch their breath, they heard the loud crack of splintering wood behind them.
Quickly turning to look, they saw the building they had just been standing on being pulled into the center of the vortex, and crushed into thin, tiny pieces.
With the collapse of the building’s structure, the shadowy vortex swallowed it into the true body of the shade―― into the heart of the writhing shadow, further enlarging its mass.

[Subaru: ――――]

Witnessing the devastating destruction left both Subaru and Garfiel at a loss for words.
Passing several seconds in that silence, the shadow’s contours began to blur. And the next moment―― Subaru was certain that his eyes met the eyes of the murky, all-encompassing shadow.

{???: ――I love you}

[Subaru: Uu, a……]

{???: I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you}

[Subaru: ――――]

{???: I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you}

Swelling, boundless love. All he could see was black. Love in the form of a shadow, looming, and about to drown him.
Coming to drown him with love, the love of the Witch of Envy was approaching――

    1. It is one in a life time opportunity for Subaru to witness sth as extraordinary as this .

      Good thing he has some lives to spare .


    1. I think I heard about a VN like that. Isn’t it full of yandere girls with the main girl being the worse among them? Never played, save game deleting is not funny, so I would probably rage if I played anything like that.


      1. It’s not quite like that. It’s called Doki Doki Literature Club (it’s free on Steam). I finished it yesterday and…any game that opens with a warning to not play it if you suffer from depression or anxiety is something that I’m going to want to look at ^_^


        1. Isn’t it called Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi? There is advanced level of 4th wall breaking, the girl even knows it’s a game and it’s more like the game playing than you are playing the game. Also after finishing the game you can’t even do new playthrough unless you reinstall the game because the main girl changes the game files as you progress through it.
          Apparently a lot of crazy shit happens since it’s Nitro+ game after all, I haven’t played it, only read reviews.


    2. well i guess u refer to doki doki literature club. its not just deleting, she was the 1 making them die and go for some insane shit behaviour. like yuri who wants to crawl under his skin and such.


  1. Feels good to finally experience just how threatening and creepy Envy is.
    But am I the only one who has a feeling that Emilia turned into a vessel for Envy?

    1. Yeah, I can’t imagine that Envy would have waited until now to appear if she could have otherwise. In fact, I’d be willing to bet that she was able to do this now because he revealed the truth about RBD at Echidona’s tea party.

    1. That won’t kill Subaru. It would have him existing forever as a part of her… And she would have ALL the time in the world to… make Subaru feel her love.

      Liked by 2 people

    2. Due to Echidona’s explanations I’d say that the tea party happened before Subaru Returned by Death. If it had happened after RBD, then no time would have passed in the real world between the end of the First Trial and the next tea party.


      1. From what I understood from the previous tea parties, time still passes while he’s in the dream world, just slower. So 1 hour in the tea party is maybe just 5 minutes in the real world.


      1. Satella: “I LOVE YOU!”
        Subaru: “I LOVE EMILIA!”
        Satella: *posesses Emila’s body* “I LOVE YOU!”
        Subaru: “I LOVE REMU!”
        Satella: “WHO’S REM?!”


    1. Yea . Subaru is being rude to such a nice and calm person .I really wonder why he doesn’t stay there to chat with this rational person right .
      Just because she is a mass murder and a total psycho doesn’t mean you can hurt her feelings like this .

      Satella is the the victim here .


  2. You may officially spit in faces of anyone who says Re:Zero is a story of suffering and violence. No, it’s truly the story of Love!

    As for why the Envy appeared… might she perhaps feel Subaru speaking of RBD to another girl? Anyway, time to RBD! That, or embrace the Shadows.

    1. Small correction it’s actually a story of love through suffering and violence. It’s neither of those individually but all them at the same time. 😉


  3. I also think Satella took over Emilia, cause its strange that she manifested herself that much considering she is sealed and limited to Subaru. Guess that happens if you flirt to much with Echidna XD
    But so glad we get Satella now, its prob the Charackter i am most curious about and interested in, since no matter how you want to see it, the core is about Subaru and Satella.

    1. I’m not trying to complain *too much* here but it breaks my immersion a little bit when Subaru is in such intense situations and is able to retort with lines like:

      >[Subaru: I don’t have the kind of special characteristic where I can use backbone to increase health-points in my neck――uwa!?]

      It feels like he, very often, is able to make these quips and comedic efforts in the middle of very tense battles and situations where long sentences and thoughts just don’t seem rational.

      Sorry, just a little thing I slightly dislike about Subaru. (I don’t dislike him for nearly any other reason and this is hardly a reason to dislike him, at all. My apologies 😉 )


      1. Last comment before I was just kidding I mean the witch only said it the whole chapter men that chick is crazy why do you like me response I love you a million times lol


  4. Really wish I could stop picturing Garfiel as Ban from Seven deadly sins, when he was first introduced he seemed so much like him and it just doesn’t stop.


    1. Definitely scary I would shit my pants if I was him. Obsessive girls are scary in general but Satella is on a completely different level.


    1. Totally agree. While I realize it doesn’t always make sense, time doesn’t always permit, and the story sometimes benefits from breaking things up in tactical ways — the really short chapters are such a tease sometimes 🙂

      Don’t listen to this complaints too much, Chicken-sama. You are in charge here and we are all more than happy and appreciative of the hard work you put in for our enjoyment!

      Thanks, as always!


  5. “There was the incomprehensible situation as well, but the biggest reason was why did Garfiel choose to save him.” – weird sentence

    “reversal nonetheless” – the “nonetheless” feels very out of place

    “by the pitch blackness” – I assume the “the” is referring to Satella, but it’s still out of place in this context

    “inching closer at a crawling pace.” – this phrasing is redundant, “inching” and “crawling” imply each other

    “was nonetheless calmly” – the “despite” earlier in the sentence implies “nonetheless”

    “before him.” – should be “?”

    “great mass of whirling” – suggestion: change to “great whirling mass of”

    “both fell at” – “fell” supposed to be “felt”?

    “met the eyes” – should be shortened to “met those” since “eyes” is implied

    “the love of” – this should be deleted

      1. I normally comment more than 50 times per chapter in the live draft, but sometimes I miss the live draft… Like this combined part

        Trust me, there are at least 10 suggestions I decided not to suggest for the sake of not filling the comments


    1. I went through the chapter to revise a bit more when I woke up.

      First one I added a few words. It’s hard to make it clearer without changing the meaning.

      I think the nontheless is needed there since the sentence sounds weird without it.

      “The pitch blackness” is the sea of blackness covering all the Sanctuary. It’s one thing so it’s referred to with “The”.

      Inching and crawling is fine being redundant, they serve different roles in the sentence. One describes the action, the other the speed.

      “before him” was overused but it was overused in the original text. I was a bit too tired to shuffle it better though. Trying to space them out more right now.

      Both fell at definitely shouldn’t be there, good thing you reminded me. I was too tired last night to think of “Witnessing the devastating destruction left both Subaru and Garfiel at a loss for words.”

      “met the eyes” is like ” I met the athletes”. “Those” won’t work there.

      “The love of the Witch of Envy” is in the Japanese text.

      You can leave notes on the live draft every read-through. When I clear the notes I keep a mental note of everything in my head for when I re-edit. And you can leave the notes again if it’s important.

  6. Here I was thinking, “Hey, they can have a conversation. Maybe Subaru can ask Envy some questions.” Then Garfiel is all, “Fuckin’ nope! ‘s jumpin’ time!” Then Envy displays her conversation range… Jumping time it is then. Say Subaru, if you get back to that Tomb, like now, maybe you could rush the remaining trials?

        That’s the entire vocabulary of Envy so far


  7. I guess many people here don’t know that Satella and Witch of Envy are two different persons all together. Satella is a good person while Envy is the big badass witch but both of them love subaru equally


    1. why would some1 understand it if it wasnt explained? all i know is every1 hate satella, so if all hate her means she is the witch of envy, nothing else explained. if he want to introduce split personality he is welcomed to do it, although its stupid, but k. split personality is rare (except in animes). better just make a psycho who just hides his true feelings


    2. They also don’t know many things in arc 5 . And arc 6 .
      It is probably because all of these things aren’t mentioned yet .


  8. I think the witch of envy is actually helping Subaru out here. I mean, Garfiel was wary of Subaru because of his scent, but now the scent is everywhere thanks to Satella. Which means Garfiel isn’t hostile to Subaru, and will probably help him. He wouldn’t have saved him if not for that. I’m almost sure that the Witch did it on purpose, and probably teleported everyone else in another dimension so that they won’t get rekt by the rabbits. And like this, Subaru and Garfiel will be able to spank Elsa’s beautiful butt.

    Now, I wanna see how the hell will Subaru convince Garfiel to leave the Sanctuary to actually help him save his older sister that he believes to be some sort of traitor. If the witch of envy helps him out on that one too, then I’m definitely shipping those two together. Maybe Subaru will be able to use unseen hands, like Juice used to ? Or maybe will he have some sort of SHINRA TENSEEEEI powaa, that allows him to repel any ennemies around him ? Just like he did to Garfiel a few chapters before.

    Let’s pray, friends. Let’s pray for our Subaru-kyun here.


    1. stupid as it seems i didnt think about the scent all over the place so thats why he didnt care. i thought of the more complicated option that he saw the witch was chasing subaru and looks like she wants to kill him.
      and about your theory with garfiel and all… as the shadow destroyed alot of the village and swallowed every1, and no chance to stop it (who can stop her now anyway? if garfiel cant no1 can) i think subaru will just die somehow and back to the beginning


    2. Satella’s help is like someone using a flamethrower to kill a spider in your house. Sure the spider’s gone, but now your house is in fire and you’re trapped inside.


  9. So last night I had a dream that I was at a Party on Avengers Island hosted by Tony Stark, suddenly Zaraki Kenpachi turns up to warns us that the Great White Rabbit was going to attack, we were gearing up to engage when stupid postman woke me up 😦

    I’d totally watch that movie, Kickstarter anyone?

  10. Lady Sate❤ and her love for Subaru aside, I think Garfiel may have just revealed himself as the arch- bishop of wrath. Between allegedly owning a gospel and the description of the look Subaru saw on his face, as well as his OP tiger form, I’d say all the pieces are coming together. Anyone?


  11. Wow that was amazing! I’m glad Garfiel came in for the save. Its crazy just how powerful she is. Her shadow alone can swallow a village whole. I’m glad you put parts 2&3 together this time because it helped keep the tension.

    What wonderful birthday present. Thank you oh great chicken ; )




    1. multiple times*

      Too bad Subaru will not try to spam talk ”return by death” for as long as possible , and then wait to see what happens . It would have been interesting .


  13. sound so indistinct that Subaru couldn’t tell whether it was a man or a woman’s.

    Shouldn’t it be a “Man’s” sorry if I’m wrong that just sounded weird in my head.


  14. Wow… That is some scary love..
    At least, now I know how she can cover the world in darkness. Such a creepy, fearful, powerful power. And if Satella’s that powerful in her shadowy form, how much more will she be if her real body is unsealed? Ooohh

    Thanks for the great chapter Chicken.

    What if the original web novel is about Sunaru having a fun time in The Sanctuary playing with his new friend Garfiel and Rooswal. Making love with Emilia and feeding a lot of little white bunnies with carrot 😂

  17. I think its because Subu keep mentioning the “Return by Death” in Greed’s Citadel and that it could not manifest in the dream, it manifested in the real world. As for Emilia’s whereabouts, Let’s just guess that she completed her First trial and did not get possessed by Envy. >.<


  18. Your work is awesome, Chicken! I find myself checking my email constantly everyday for updates. If I were a millionaire I’d donate a fortune.



    I feel like now would be a good time for Subaru to try and communicate with Satella and get some more answers…

    Anyway, thanks for the translations Chicken, I can’t wait to see what happens next



  20. uum so trying to read the live draft Of distant roar and it keeps saying it’s in violation of Google’s terms of condition and service just thought you should know..


    1. Yes I did a search and apparently that happens with Google Docs sometimes. The file is still there so I’m working offline for now. Sometimes it’s automated when it picks up certain keywords or images, or graphic descriptions of violence…


  21. Ok Envy, but calm the hell down a little bit, please, can talk through it by any chance?
    The hell is happening? It is due to his last RBD or because he spilled out all of it with Echidona? Why is Garfiel desperate? He is the strongest, isn’t he?
    Thanks for the doubt, Chicken!
