Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)


Sun Knight’s Daily Duty #7: “Admonish the Misconduct of a Fellow Holy Knight” – translated by dahlys

A day after the ceremony I received a letter from the palace. It confirmed that the date of the death match would be in two weeks. It was decided that it would be a free-for-all, so that the three of us could compete fairly. The last person standing would be the winner.

This was not unexpected, for I had strongly encouraged the princess to make it a three person melee. I also encouraged her to postpone the date of the death match as far back as possible, to give me at least two weeks to prepare. It looked like the king still loved his only sister. Even though she nearly angered him to death, he still listened to her requests.

But the king was probably still furious thanks to me. The letter actually included an affidavit, wanting me to swear that I would be responsible for my death! He can’t possibly want the Son of the God of War to use this opportunity to kill me, right…?

I was flabbergasted. I signed the affidavit because I knew that with my extraordinary self-recovery ability and with the Pope watching the match it would be more likely for me to be assassinated than to die on stage.

After confirming the time of the death match I decided to look for Knight-Captain Judgment. I interrupted a random holy knight to inquire about his whereabouts, only to find that the Twelve Holy Knights were in a meeting. Now that I think about it, when was the last time I attended a meeting?

The moment I opened the door to the conference hall, everybody’s gaze shifted to me. After flashing a dazzling smile and nodding my head in acknowledgement, I apologized, “My apologies, dear brothers, Sun was unable to attend this meeting for he has been busy…”

“Don’t worry about it, Sun! You’ve been so b-busy lately… Besides, whether you’re here or not makes absolutely no difference!” Earth Knight replied ‘sincerely.’

Earth, you… I gritted my teeth, ignored Earth, and looked directly at Judgment Knight and said, “Knight-Captain Judgment, if you do not mind, could I borrow a little of your time? I want to practice my swordsmanship with you.”

Judgment answered coolly, “As long as you don’t mind getting injured, Knight-Captain Sun, it is not a problem.”

As we left the conference hall together and I conveniently shut the door behind me, I happened to hear Leaf exclaim, “OH NO! Since Sun cannot marry the princess, could he be contemplating suicide?”

Metal then replied, “Nonsense! Our Knight-Captain Judgment has no interest in beating to death someone who doesn’t even have the strength to tie up a chicken1.”

At long last, all of the members of the ‘good, warm-hearted’ faction were forced to admit, “Yup! Judgment is not a person who bullies the weak.”

I could not help but sigh and turn around to inquire and complain to Judgment, “Am I really that lousy? I have survived till today and have even defeated countless undead. No matter how you look at it, I can’t be that weak, right?”

The corners of Judgment’s lips raised a little, and then he directly asked me, “Where are we going?”

“Prayer room.”

Judgment nodded and did not ask any more questions. He followed me all the way to the prayer room, which had a sign with the words “Under Renovation” hanging on the door. I ignored it, opened the door, and entered. As expected, Elijah was standing inside, looking at the painting on the wall.

I nodded in approval. This fellow Ed is pretty efficient and rather smart. Not only did he secretly sneak Elijah in under my orders, he also stuck an “Under Renovation” sign so that other people would not enter. More importantly, he understood not to stay behind after finishing the task, sparing me the effort of wasting my breath asking him to get lost. Looks like I can assign some tasks to Ed, to prevent Adair from dying of overwork before I retire. If Adair died, I would also die of grief.

Elijah was not very surprised to see me, but the moment he saw Judgment Knight he was totally stunned. “Judgment Knight!”

Judgment regarded me, then Elijah, and then frowned. “What are you up to now?” he asked.

I explained in simple terms, “I want him to marry the princess, so I hope you can teach him some sword skills before the death match.”

Judgment responded unconcerned, “I have no problem teaching you, but I don’t believe I have any obligation to help him.”

“No! You do have an obligation to help him…”

Judgment gave me an expressionless glance. He turned and started to leave.

I immediately pulled him back and added, “He is still a member of the ‘cruel, cold-hearted’ faction. You’re the boss of the ‘cruel, cold-hearted’ faction. Can you be so heartless as to abandon him?”

“What?” Judgment spun around, scowled at Elijah’s royal knight armor, and then glared at me suspiciously.

I quickly explained, “He is Knight-Captain Hell, one of the Twelve Holy Knights. The Pope forced him to spy on the palace from a young age, but because of that he no longer wants to return to the Holy Temple…” Noting the dawning realization in Judgment’s eyes, I described the situation in greater detail, “Plus, he and the princess are deeply in love. I promised him that as long as he can prevent the Son of the God of War from marrying the princess, thereby giving the Pope reasonable justification for letting him go, he will be free of the Church.”

At this point, I whispered in Judgment’s ear, “Otherwise, the Pope will kill this useless spy.”

Judgment’s frown deepened. After a long period of silence, he finally said, “The Son of the God of War is very strong. Even I am not confident that I could beat him. In addition, unlike warriors, knights are not suited to dueling. Knights ride horses to battle and are most adept at using defensive shield formations. As holy knights, we use some holy magic to make up for our limitations. But to prevent his identity from being exposed, Knight-Captain Hell cannot use any kind of holy magic… To conclude, there is no possibility of him winning.”

I nodded and replied, “I know that, but he does not have to win. All I need is for you to train him so that he can stall for as long as possible.”

Judgment glowered and said in a disagreeing tone, “Knight-Captain Sun, you should know that your most important job now is—”

“Obtaining more followers!” I completed his sentence and then added seriously, “Believe me, I am pouring all the energy I have now into carrying out this job… But I can conveniently finish some other unrelated tasks at the same time.”

Judgment shot me a blank stare. Hey! After receiving this look, I realized that he had gone from the “business is business” Judgment Knight to my good friend Lesus, who will agree to do anything. He helplessly said, “I guess I can’t refuse, otherwise you will annoy me to death!”

Hee hee! I don’t mean to boast, but I am at my most patient when I need someone to do something for me. I remember that a long time ago I gave Lesus hourly reminders just to make him climb over the wall to buy blueberry pies for me. Please note that this meant saying, “Lesus, buy blueberry pies for me!” every hour, twenty-four hours a day, including at night.

But, thinking back now, I feel tremendously relieved. Luckily for me, Lesus finally surrendered and chose to climb over the wall to buy blueberry pies. He could have chosen to conduct a shocking midnight homicide. After murdering me with one slash of his sword, he could have climbed over the wall to get rid of the corpse, and that would have been the end of all annoyances…

“Since there are only two weeks left, the training should begin today.”

Judgment shook his head when he heard the words ‘two weeks’ and said, “One day I will lose control and chop you to death instead of complying with you.”

I immediately praised loudly, “No way, no way! Judgment, you are the nicest person in the world, even nicer than Leaf! You will definitely never chop your bestest best friend to death.”

“…Are you being sarcastic?” Judgment shot a look at me.

“That was a compliment!” I denied frantically. After coughing a few times, I pushed Elijah forward and reminded him, “Hey! Have you finished daydreaming? Judgment has already agreed to teach you sword skills, so why haven’t you thanked him?”

Elijah finally came to his senses and stammered, “D-Don’t you two hate each other…?”

I nodded and exclaimed, “That’s right! Let me introduce you to my good friend whom I hate the most, Lesus Judgment.”

“Good friend…whom you hate the most?!” Unsurprisingly, Elijah stared into empty space once more. It was obvious his brain had stopped functioning.

“Quit bullying him.” Judgment shook his head at my bad behavior and reminded, “Since we are aiming to stall for time, having Cloud Knight’s help would be killing two birds with one stone.”

“Cloud?”

I thought about it for a while, and then came to a sudden revelation. Immediately, I said, “No problem! I shall go look for him right away. Cloud is not only a member of the ‘good, warm-hearted’ faction, but he is also very obedient. All I have to do is order him to help out.”

Judgment nodded and began to size up Elijah, as if contemplating what training method to utilize… I briefly prayed for Elijah. Even though the way Judgment does things is totally fair (and he would not make things too difficult for Elijah on purpose), I have seen the training plan Judgment drew up for himself… I can only say that after that kind of training, anybody could become a master swordsman!

Who was it? Who secretly said “except for me”? I heard you!

“Cloud! Knight-Captain Cloud! Where are you?!” I shouted for Cloud as I walked. Although walking and yelling affects my graceful Sun Knight image, I didn’t have a choice!

This was the fastest way to find Cloud. Also, once everybody hears that I am looking for Cloud, they will forgive my inelegant hollering. This is because “everyone knows” that Knight-Captain Cloud is a wanderer and is as graceful as a cloud. It is said that he can be found drinking alone or reading books on windowsills, rooftops, under banyan trees, etc.

I cannot begin to guess how the old Cloud Knight drifted around gracefully. I only know that our Cloud is commonly found drifting here and there. Plus, his drifting ability is exceptional; he often drifts past my ear and I do not necessarily notice him… He is most commonly found in dark corners, behind dusty curtains in an attic, and in cabinets nobody has opened in years. In conclusion, I should just search for dark and damp places!

He usually hides in these dim places with a small holy light for illumination, reading books with titles like “How to Conduct Accurate Foretelling”, “The Ten Best Good Luck Spells”, and “Bringing Good Fortune and Staying Away from Bad Luck.” He would have a pot of unknown blackish, greenish, or reddish liquid beside him, but I never dared to ask him what they were.

As the Holy Temple is enormous, there are plenty of dark and damp places. It is nearly impossible to correctly guess which cabinet Cloud is hiding in.

Hence, the method everybody uses to find him—walking and shouting.

I searched for a long time and just happened to see Storm pass by. Surprisingly, he was only carrying about ten work documents, which was much less than usual. I knew that Storm could not possibly know which cabinet Cloud was hiding in, but being as exhausted as I was, I could not resist asking, “Brother Storm, may I inquire as to whether you are aware which direction Brother Cloud went after the meeting?”

Storm raised an eyebrow and answered my question with another, “Unless Cloud was standing in front of you, have you ever seen him?”

“No…”

I sighed. This fellow Cloud is just like a ghost. Not only does he love hiding in dark corners, he even walks using the special ‘Cloud Steps,’ which have been passed down through countless generations of Cloud Knights. The Cloud Steps, which were originally used to dodge enemy attacks, were now being used to avoid being seen… If he did not want to be found, you would have to grow a third eye in order to see him!

Storm nodded in agreement. Before I left, he commented, “Where do you usually see Cloud?”

Where do I usually see Cloud? I thought about it for a bit. In the meeting room? Nah, I did not really “see” him back there. In the hallways? Nope, I have never “seen” him in the hallways. Cabinets? No, No! Even if I found the right cabinet, I often cannot see through Cloud’s camouflage.

Wait! Actually, the place I usually find him is… A shiver ran down my spine. I shuddered and said, “Behind me…”

Storm nodded, and then pointed behind my back with his index finger. He left after that, minding his own business.

I waited some time before saying, “Cloud?”

“Here.”

He really is there… I turned around abruptly and, sure enough, I found Knight-Captain Cloud whose skin was even paler than mine due to long years without exposure to the sun. I did not know whether to laugh or cry. “When did you start following me?” I asked.

Cloud mumbled politely, “I happened to be in the bookcase next to the prayer room under renovation, and heard you as soon as you left and started shouting for me.”

“So you followed me all the way? Why didn’t you call out to me?”

Cloud murmured listlessly, “I called you many times, but you probably couldn’t hear me because your voice was too loud.”

“Next time just tap my shoulder!” I said impatiently.

“Okay.” Cloud nodded.

“Were you hiding in the cabinet again?” I complained. “Didn’t I tell you, cabinets are not meant for people to inhabit. You can read books in the reading room, or if you want to be alone, you can find an empty prayer room. As one of the Twelve Holy Knights, no one will object if you request for a private prayer room.”

Cloud shook his head vigorously and said, “I wasn’t hiding in the cabinet because you forbade me from hiding there.”

“Didn’t you just say you were hiding in the cabinet?”

Cloud shook his head again and said, “I was hiding in the bookcase.”

“…Is there a difference?”

Cloud tilted his head to one side, and then answered, “Cabinets have the musty smell of mold; bookcases smell like moths. Moths smell better.”

Normal people should dislike both smells, right? And since moths smell better, why hide in cabinets in the first place? I really cannot follow Cloud’s train of thought… Forget it! It’s fine as long as he is happy.

“Cloud, immediately report to Judgment Knight in the prayer room under construction and then follow his orders.”

“Okay.” Cloud nodded once more and then vanished like a ghost.

I nodded in approval. Although Cloud is a bit difficult to find, has a barely audible voice, a rather strange personality, and an odd way of thinking, he is very obedient. This obedience is his greatest virtue. He obeys all my commands without ever asking why.

“Sun!”

Without waiting for the person who shouted to reach me, I frowned and said, “Trouble?”

“How did you know?” Blaze screeched to a halt and gaped, eyes filled with suspicion as to whether I recently gained the ability of clairvoyance.

“Whenever you run toward me in a hurry, nothing good happens,” I explained gloomily. Didn’t Adair nearly die the last time this happened?

“So that’s how you knew…” Blaze seemed to suddenly realize what he was supposed to do and then began panicking once more. He hollered, “That’s not right! Why are we discussing this?! Your Sun Knight Platoon had a fight with the guys from the Monastery of the God of War. A bunch of them are injured, but thankfully no one’s life is in danger and they are all tending their wounds in the main hall now. However, the guys from the Monastery of the God of War are demanding that the Sun Knight Platoon be punished. It doesn’t make any sense! Where is the justice in beating each other up?! Their wounds are much lighter than the Sun Knight Platoon’s, so we should be the ones demanding compensation!”

I was outraged the moment I heard. My Sun Knight Platoon actually ignored my repeated warnings and went to pick a fight with such a strong enemy!

Were they going to anger me to death before they were satisfied?

When Blaze and I dashed into the main hall, we instantly saw the blood drenched members of the Sun Knight Platoon. I was so livid that I nearly scolded them in public. Luckily, Blaze pulled my sleeve and pointed at the Son of the God of War and his approximately fifty warriors in the middle of the hall. Only then did I restrain myself.

I smiled broadly as I walked past the injured Sun Knight Platoon and continued all the way to where the Son of the God of War was. Courteously, I said, “If Sun knew that the Son of the God of War was arriving, Sun would have personally welcomed your presence here in order to express the gracious hospitality of the God of Light. Since you are here, would you care for Sun to show you around the Church of the God of Light?”

The Son of the God of War’s lips twitched as he listened to me. He growled, “Stop talking bullshit. Sun Knight, your people beat up my people, and you, you…! Anyway, you need to account for this.”

My people beat up your people? I sneered in my heart. Not only were the Sun Knight Platoon’s injuries far more serious than his warriors, I am absolutely sure that under my teachings the Sun Knight Platoon would never pick a fight they could not win. Therefore, it isn’t hard to discern who started the fight!

I am 80% sure this was because Elijah and I were trying to snatch his princess. This made him furious. Since he could not take his anger out on Elijah or me (and would not dare touch the royal knights, because the royal knights belong to the King and not Elijah), he started a fight with my Sun Knight Platoon… Those bastards! Didn’t I recently tell them not to leave the Holy Temple? My words fell on deaf ears!

The moment I heard what the Son of the God of War said, I stopped smiling and said gravely, “Of course, as the God of Light teaches us, we should definitely not treat our guests with violence. Instead we should treat all things with the benevolence of the God of Light, as kindness will be repaid with kindness. Violence incites more violence and hate begets hate. No one likes to be treated with violence. Hence, we must first show our thoughtfulness and kind consideration. Only then will the other party repay kindness with kindness—”

The more the Son of the God of War listened, the deeper he frowned. At last, he grabbed his head as if he had a splitting headache and bellowed, “SHUT UP!”

I closed my mouth as he wished and smiled warmly at him.

Blaze mumbled from behind me, “Wow! I just had a big fight with this guy and not a single hair on his head was messed up. All Sun had to do was talk and he has a splitting headache.”

“Just tell me how you are going to punish them!” The Son of the God of War snarled. It looks like talking to me is more tiring than fighting with Blaze.

I spun about to face my Sun Knight Platoon and rebuked, “You actually treated our guests with violence? Have you forgotten that you are holy knights of the God of Light? Are you so selfish? Since you are so unwilling to be polite holy knights, I shall forbid the clerics from healing you. Go to the medical room and bandage up your wounds. After that, all of you report to the detention room. You have been grounded for a month!”

The members of the Sun Knight Platoon hung their heads in shame and slowly got to their feet. Some of the more seriously injured members needed support from others to get up.

Finally grasping the current situation, Blaze said anxiously, “Sun, there’s nothing wrong with putting them in detention, but at least let them seek healing from the clerics! Their injuries are too severe!”

“That is their punishment.” I said plainly, with no intention of retracting my orders.

The surrounding holy knights looked at the Sun Knight Platoon with sympathy and proceeded to glare at those from the Monastery of the God of War.

I turned to address the Son of the God of War just in time to see a satisfied grin spread across his face. The warriors behind him laughed out loud as the embarrassed members of the Sun Knight Platoon left the hall.

“I really look forward to the death match in two weeks. For the sake of the God of Light’s benevolence, I will be merciful.” The Son of the God of War’s teeth flashed as he beamed widely.

I smiled dazzlingly and replied, “Many thanks for your kindness.”

“Hahaha…” Everyone from the Monastery of the God of War laughed boisterously as they swaggered out of the Church without even saying a single ‘goodbye.’

Once the warriors of the Monastery of the God of War had left Blaze cautiously sized me up and whispered, “S-Sun? Now that they are gone, should I go look for some clerics to heal the Sun Knight Platoon?”

At one look from me, he instantly went quiet.

I strode quickly after the Sun Knight Platoon. Blaze hesitated for a bit then followed me. Although there were many medical rooms and I did not instruct the Sun Knight Platoon on which room to use, it was easy to find them. All I had to do was follow the trail of blood.

All the clerics, holy knights, and even the Twelve Holy Knights went pale the moment they saw me pass by. They even took steps to avoid me.

When I reached the medical room, I gently shut the door behind me. I then growled angrily at the Sun Knight Platoon, “You bastards, what have I taught you?”

All the members of the Sun Knight Platoon hung their heads, not daring to say anything.

I lost my temper and roared, “Didn’t I tell you before?! If you want to hit somebody, make sure he is at least two times weaker than you. If the opponent is almost as equally strong, never act unless the chance of winning is at least 200%. Didn’t I tell you to just tolerate it and report to me before starting a fight?”

“Captain, it’s not our fault! They wouldn’t let us walk away!” Ed answered in a subdued voice, as he held his bleeding left hand.

“Nonsense!” I rebutted. “If you really wanted to leave, how could they stop you in broad daylight? All the patrolling royal knights would have helped you deal with troublemakers like that.”

Ed howled, “B-but, we couldn’t just ignore them! They insulted you! If we just turned tail and ran, wouldn’t it confirm that they were right?”

There was an immediate uproar among those present and they all complained, “That’s right! They actually called you a spineless coward who relies only on his good looks!”

That means that I am very handsome! What’s there to be angry about?

“They said that holy knights were good-for-nothings, who could only take beatings. That’s too much!”

Err… Actually, they were not too far from the truth. Holy knights are best at defense and recovery. These two abilities combined make holy knights highly resilient, which means they are experts at getting beaten up!

“They even said that you don’t care about us. Even if they killed us, you would never dare touch them…”

Rubbish! If they dared to kill you, I would make sure they were all paralyzed for life!

It was this third statement that ultimately pissed me off. I made a solemn face as I listened to them complain and bandage their injuries at the same time. When they were about done, I ordered, “Report to the detention room.”

Hearing that they would still going to be detained, the Sun Knight Platoon looked at the ground miserably. Just as they were about to leave, there came a knock on the door.

“Who is it?” I scowled. Who would dare interrupt me while I was teaching my platoon members a lesson?

“Captain, it’s me, Adair.”

“You have guts to disobey me and get out of bed. Have you fully recovered?”

“I’m perfectly fine now, Captain.”

“Then come in.”

Adair fell to his knees the moment he entered and said guiltily, “Captain, if you insist on putting the Sun Knight Platoon in detention, then please lock me up too. This all happened because I, the Vice-captain, failed to train them well.”

I glanced at Adair. Since his movements seemed very smooth, his injuries were probably fully healed. Coldly, I said, “Very good! All of you, report to the detention room.”

Adair looked down, hiding his expression, and replied like usual, “At once.”

  1. I loved this chapter and I absolutely look forward to SUn devising a cunning plan to massacre that pathetic bunch of God of War faction. I hope the scenario goes something like all the knights of god of war dying and The son of god of war quivering in fear while SUn just smiles at him and gives a really horrible choice to make which will end his life in one way or another.

  2. Thanks for the release!

  3. Thank you PR!
    I thought this would be up later this month.
    Now I have to find something to do while I wait another month for more LSK.

  4. Thank you very much!!

  5. 200% it is still 2 times weaker than you, hahaha!

  6. is this the first comment? o.O great!! I just finished chapter 5-7 and this series is as great as ever ^^…..but the last sentence “Adair looked down, hiding his expression”…sounds kind of foreboding…I hope he really is allright >.<

  7. Loved it :)

  8. And in the detention room there aren’t any clerics. But there is plenty of booze and food. And it’s where an annoyed Sun heals the lot of them. (My prediction)

    Thanks for the translation. Looking forward to next month to see if my prediction is accurate. :)

  9. Thanks for the chapter! Haha something tells me that the Son of the God of War is
    going to have a very bad experience soon…

  10. “Who was it? Who secretly said ‘except for me’? I heard you!
    That should be directed at Sun right?
    so it should be:
    “Who secretly said ‘except for you’?”
    As if Sun is the only one this training regimen wouldn’t work on.

  11. OMGGGG you made me happy!!! XD great job people!!

  12. darkgloomie

    I thought that Holy Knights knew at least some healing spells? Sure, they can’t ask clerics to heal them, but nimor injuries they can heal themselves, I think… unless Sun trained them in a way as to not make them do anything by themselves unless asked.

    Which I wouldn’t put it past him, and yet they keep disobeying him.

  13. thanks for the chapter!

  14. whoa harsh! :( But still love Sun! lol!
    I dislike those warriors… >.>

  15. Poor Sun Knight Platoon. XD; I love how Cloud Knight was following Sun for so long though, lol. XD I look forward to the next chapter. =)

  16. The Sun Platoon is very dumb… I’d rather keep fighting and die at the hands of the son of the God of War’s hand than face Sun’s wrath…

    • @NeoWarrior
      Dont forget that Sun can just revive one of them to make example of. He already made example of Ed by pushing him off the cliff, then push a boulder as his companion down the cliff.

  17. Hey guys!
    Thanks for the chapter!
    I just thought that I should point out a couple of things:
    “I wasn’t hiding in the cabinet because you forbid me from hiding there.” – Shouldn’t this be “because you forbade me from hiding there.”?
    Adair looked down, hiding his expression, and replied like usual, “At once.” – Shouldn’t this be “replied as usual”?

  18. see the updates from the morning but no free time to read all day … when finally have time to read, i’m so sleepy that i find it hard to open my eyes. and all the drowsiness suddenly gone when i started reading ^^
    thanx for the updates, cant wait the next updates (half-prince i mean) hhehehe

  19. This is awesome! Thank you!

  20. “No way, no way! Judgment, you are the nicest person in the world, even nicer than Leaf! You will definitely never chop your bestest best friend to death.”
    “Didn’t I tell you, cabinets are not meant for people to inhabit.”
    I swear, I nearly pee’d myself at these lines. xD
    Haha, tbh I think Sun Knight could take Mr. War Head but maybe that’s just me. xP Thank you for your updates~

    • @Purianee
      I think it depends on whether or not they are alone. In other words, is Sun able to use all of the skills at his disposal, or is he only able to use traditional Sun Knight tactics?

  21. thanks .< no wonder Sun barely sees him

  22. This was…
    I cant say that this was the most funniest chapter ever because every chapter before it was hilarious
    I love these chapters!!!

  23. thanks ! this made my day (and it wasn’t a good one lol) i love the parts with the sun platoon lol they are really something!
    and adair is unique ! (how in hell couldn’t understand what sun is talking about or what he intend to do or to say ! lol)

    I am dying to know what is waiting in detention !! I even want some spoiler !!! but we have to wait a month …. well at last, it will be coming up lol

    thanks again for the good work, we love you !!

  24. Thanks so much for updating! You guys are the best!

  25. Thanks for the chapter. It was awesome.
    I look forward to the cunning plan of Grisia. and Cloud Knight could be the perfect assasin, he has stealth and is obedient. It’s a shame that he is in the good, warm faction. xP

  26. He’s too funny. xD

  27. Haha… “Next time just tap me on the shoulder!” –next time: Sun freaks out when Cloud taps him on the shoulder. “Don’t do that! Next time just call my name!”
    Beautiful, as always. I’m waiting for Grisia’s cunning-plan-that-is-not-a-cunning-plan (because the Sun Knight wouldn’t have a cunning plan, right?) Keep it up!

  28. Wah! I didn’t notice that this chapter was out. According to the date of release, it was out on my birthday. That is a wonderful bday present actually the only present. hahaha… Well off to read this again. XD

  29. I hope the pots of greenish/blackish/reddish liquid weren’t going to be drunk by Cloud… And that the reddish one wasn’t blood.

    O.o Maybe Cloud has a fetish for necromancy! He can take lessons from Sun and Pink!

  30. thanks for the chapter!!!!!!!you are awsome!!

    just a question……isn´t Sun speaking more clearly lately? what about The Blessings of the God of Light every 2 sentences?

    cant wait for the next one!

    • Hmm I will look into it. But if Yu Wo didn’t write the blessing of God of Light in every 2 sentences, we can’t translate it out of no where too…@@.

  31. I love this novel, I´m so grateful that you are translating it!!!! It´s soo cool! I read it all in five hours ´cause I couldn´t stop reading =3

    I´m looking forward the next chapter (oh, yeah, please tell me if you´re going to continue translating it in spanish, cause I now a few people that would like to read it too and don´t know english)

    See ya!!

  32. I love the work you guys do! I’ve seen some translations other people have done, but I always check here first/anyway because I feel you guys do a much better and thorough job of translating and expressing what it feels like the author was trying to get across. From text that just tends to be more fluid and foot notes that increase understanding, I get so much more out of the story when I read this (and love it so much that I read and reread chapters when they come out)! Thank you so much for your hard work everyone~ You are fantastic!
    Also, I feel like Sun is more frank in this chapter because he’s interacting with people he can only speak with in private (the princess and the hell knight), they cannot take 3 years to learn to understand him, and, most importantly I think, these are pressing matters he’s dealing with when talking to them. It would be quite bad if he was misunderstood or misinterpreted! (I feel like he expressed the God of Light sufficiently at the coronation.. at least enough to keep me happy! XD)
    Love you guys!

    • eilinel

      Oh wow, I feel like copy and pasting this comment in our staff forum. Thank you =).

  33. After I read, in one of the previous chappies, that sun was planning on using roland, I realized that sun is a very, very smart man.

    His plan is to probably
    USE ROLAND TO CREATE A RUCKUS OF THE UNDEAD!!!! since Roland is heading the undead, they are not a REAL threat in any way. This means, that durring the fight, before anyone can really get hurt, he can create a ruckus, “endanger” the princess, and then “save” her. Knock the son of the god of war (who knows nothing about the undead) out with roland’s help. AND THEN, withdraw from the fight.

    HE KILLS ALL THREE BIRDS WITH ONE STONE!!!!
    1) Elijah gets the princess, and is no longer a threat to the temple. Not to mention he’s indebted to sun. So sun now has a new lackey. XD
    2) The god of war doesn’t get to marry the princess, so the prince’s plan is foiled, and sun’ll probably do something else to embarrass the dude as well, to prevent any influence of his in the area.
    3) Cause there are a ton of spectators, and sun’ll look really cool/ save the princess-y awesome during the fight, he’ll cause the younger generation to become followers, solving that problem as well!!!

    REASONING!!!! The prologue… it foreshadows a plot for each volume:
    “He dispatched the darkness’ Death Knight back into the abyss and defeated the malevolent Undying Witch. Not to forget that he also slew a dragon, rescued a princess, and destroyed the Great Demon King…”

    Volume 1: Death Lord
    Volume 2:Rescued a princess ….
    see where I’m going with this?!

      ^ is horrible, I’m sleepy AND excited, so the response sucks.

      REWRITE:

      After re-reading the last few chapters over, I think I know what sun’s up to. This is just a prediction, but….

      First I thought of his goals. His most pressing priorities are:

      1) solicit more followers for the temple

      2) prevent the marriage between the princess and the son of the god of war (and get revenge on the son of the god of war)

      3) solve hell knight’s problem

      4) prove to everyone that resurrection isn’t as perfect as it sounds
      ————————————————-
      To do this he is:
      1) getting Judgement and Cloud teaching Elijah how to fight better, as well as evasion techniques, so that he can stall during the battle FOR sun.

      “The Cloud Steps, which were originally used to dodge enemy attacks, were now being used to avoid being seen… If he did not want to be found, you would have to grow a third eye in order to see him!”

      2) He is planning on getting Roland to create a ruckus with his un dead so that he can kill the son of the god of war, and have Elijah marry the princess.

      “Since I was going to request Roland to do some things for me, I might as well just bring him here and continue drinking as Supreme Dragon.”

      3) He’s planning on “saving the princess”, from the un dead

      “He dispatched the darkness’ Death Knight back into the abyss and defeated the malevolent Undying Witch. Not to forget that he also slew a dragon, rescued a princess, and destroyed the Great Demon King…”
      Volume 1: Dispatched Death Lord
      Volume 2: Rescued a princess

      4) He’s also planning on “reviving” the son of the god of war (and since resurrection has a low rate of actually succeeding w/out side effects… the son may end up with a pair of… knockers).

      “I answered honestly, “That won’t happen, as you will not become an undead creature if revived within eight hours of death. However, instead of losing something you could gain something. For example, you could grow an pair of horns on your head, a tail on your backside, or large breasts even though you are male. A woman may gain an extra…””

      CONCLUSION:
      After the sun knight has revived (ie taken revenge on) the son of the god of war, he will no longer be able to be taken seriously.Hence, soliciting followers or marrying the princess will become impossible for the man.

      Moreover, everyone will know of the side effects of revival, thus knocking off 2 and 4 on my “list of priorities” above.

      Furthermore, since he will look cool saving the princess, the younger generation who is obsessed with “strength” will convert to the religion of the temple of the god of light. This knocking off priority 1.

      And last but not least, priority 3 will be taken care of when he withdraws from the fight after taking care of the son of the god of war.

      Elijah get’s the princess, and both the princess and hell knight are forever afraid and indebted to the sun knight.

      @Hina

      err, no to #2 and #4. #2 because it’s too dangerous; i don’t think sun would risk the lives of innocent people (and roland probably wouldn’t/can’t LOL summon undead to hurt people). it would also hurt the church’s reputation, with all the holy knights there and still massive damage? plus, sun’s afraid of judgment, who will DEFINITELY find out about it and kill him on the spot LOL.
      i can see elijah marrying the princess happening, sun IS very fond and protective of his companions after all.

      #4 is also too risky. there’s also the probability of resurrection failing, and in this case, he’d get the full responsibility for the son of war’s death. even if he is revived with side-effects, the aftermath will be ugly ..

  34. After reading over these chapters I suspected how Sun would solve the hell knight’s problem: Become the new hell knight as supreme dragon! It seems perfect! He’s already been seen hanging around the temple as supreme dragon and attracted too much unwanted attention in the process. Especially since I think there was a comment that the original Hell knight might have actually been the first Sun knight himself. I think it would be too cool/fun for Sun if he could be in the cruel and cold hearted faction under the guise of being the Hell knight~

      impossible. we all know what a lazy bastard sun is. if he becomes hell knight too, he’ll have the work of 2 knights to do. and he knows he won’t be able to push it all onto storm forever.

  35. I love Sun. He’s such a legend. I wanna be just like him. I can’t wait for the next chapters. You guys from princerevolution.org are the best.

    @asdf1234 Desperate times call for desperate situations? By the way, would he receive extra pay for being the Hell Knight?

  37. Wow!!! Awesome series, PR you have really out done yourselves! I just finished the last published chapter and I couldn’t put it down. I can’t imagine a better or more interesting protagonist than Sun. I can’t wait to see what Brilliantly Wicked plans Sun has made to Thwart and exact his revenge on his enemies….This whole series definately gives you the feel and insight of real political intrigue, of which Grisia-Sun is a master at manipulating to his advantage. LOL even Heaven can’t help those enemies who cross this SUN Knight. I think it would be a fitting and ironic end if the Son of the God of War dies and Sun has to resurrect him and winds up turning him into a Succubus or she-male devil. that would be the ultimate form of justice and revenge by making him live like that………
    BTW i was wondering where i might be able to buy copies of LSK and HP that has been translated into english already. i have found a few website that say they offer copies of them but it is so confusing having to translate the sites and still not being able to find out if the copies are in english or not. if you have any info on this can you please drop me a line please?

    • Shadow Rebirth

      Unfortunately there is no official translation, so there are no English copies available. Anything you find online will be in Chinese.

    • @Shadow Rebirth
      Darn!! disappointed,(but not unexpected), to hear that LSK and HP are not available in an english translated version; But I am happy that their are sites like this one who work so tirelessly to translate them so all their fans can enjoy them. Well i guess until then i will wait, somewhat obediently, on pins and needles waiting for the next chapters to come out. Thank you very much for the info it is greatly appreciated Shadow Rebirth.

    I wonder if Adair is up to something. I don’t know but I always feel as though he is up to something..but that’s me being paranoid. Now onto reading the next chapter! Yippeee!

  39. I nodded in approval. This fellow Ed is efficient and rather smart. Not only did he secretly sneak Elijah in under my orders, he also stuck an “Under Renovation” sign so that other people would not enter. More importantly, he understood not to stay behind after finishing the task, sparing me the effort of wasting my breath asking him to get lost. Looks like I can assign some tasks to Ed, to prevent Adair from dying of overwork before I retire. If Adair died, I would also die of grief.
    is it wrong to think of a girlfriend foreboding over her lover’s death here?

  40. Every time I read LOTHSK I can’t help but imagine Grisaia sitting in an evil throne while plotting

  41. Sun knight fan
