The Legend of Sun Knight V3C8: “The Must-Have Plot Point for Every Adventure – King vs King”

The Legend of Sun Knight Volume 3: To the Rescue of a Princess

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


Eighth Requirement of Rescuing a Princess: “The Must-Have Plot Point for Every Adventure – King vs King” translated by Evangeline

When I opened my eyes again, the first thought that I had was… Why have I been opening my eyes after fainting so often these days?

“I knew it. Who said a groomsman wouldn’t have to escape for his life… When I return home, I’m definitely going to ask the Pope for compensation!”

I crawled up with a sour expression, mostly because I hadn’t eaten and my stomach was killing me. Even though I knew that I could call for someone, I hadn’t moved for so long that my body was already starting to feel stiff. I feared that if I kept going on like this, I would no longer be a pig, but could instead be buried and rest in peace.

I walked to the door, but just as I was about to push it open, I heard some shouting right outside. I stopped and quietly pressed my ear to the door. Immediately, I recognized Leaf and Ann’s voices. They seemed to be arguing… Unbelievable, to think that Leaf could actually argue with someone?

Leaf lowered his voice and growled, “What is with you and Princess Alice? Princess Alice actually attacked us that day, and your reaction was very strange as well.”

Ack! Oh, how my heart beats in fright. Who knew that Leaf could yell at someone, and a princess at that? Is he planning on changing his profession as a good guy?

“None of this is any of your business!” Ann’s shriek was even louder than Leaf’s.

“None of my business?” Leaf’s voice started to shake, and it seemed like he was about to snap. “How can you say that it’s none of my business when Sun has been unconscious for so long because of you guys?!”

Ann retorted, “I bet he’s only asleep!”

Slap!

Ann’s voice sounded like she was stunned. “You, you hit me…”

Yet Leaf’s voice was cold. “Don’t insult Sun. Next time, it won’t be just a slap. I will directly challenge you to a duel. I don’t care even if you are a princess, Princess Ann.”

I was so surprised that my mouth stretched to form an “O”… Did Leaf just… slap the princess? Oh my God of Light! Please don’t tell me that the side effect of the resurrection has turned him into a bad guy?

Doesn’t this mean I can’t make fun of him anymore in the future? God of Light, you are really too cruel! Bullying Leaf was one of the few delights of my life, yet You actually have the heart to deprive me of that!

“I’m sorry Leaf, I didn’t mean it.” Ann choked with sobs and said while blowing her nose, “I didn’t know that my sister Alice would attack us, and that they would even go as far as to kill you. I just wanted to help her elope with her beloved. I never wanted to hurt you and Sun, you have to believe me.”

Both parties stayed silent for some time, broken only by the sound of Ann’s sobs. Finally, Leaf sighed and then said, “I understand, and I’m sorry for hitting you earlier. I was just too worried about Sun, so I acted impulsively for a moment. Please forgive me.”

He forgave her so easily. Looks like Leaf’s still a nice guy! I’m sorry, God of Light, I misunderstood you.

At this, Ann stammered, “Le-Leaf, actually, I have a magic device for tracking my sister. It can be used to teleport someone to my sister’s side just once… I’m sorry! Don’t scold me!”

Silence fell for a good while outside, and then Leaf stammered, “It’s too dangerous to go after them. Mike and Austin have gone for reinforcements. After Sun and I leave, tell them and let them decide.”

“Why should I wait until after you and Sun leave? Are you not coming with us?” Ann’s voice sounded very desperate.

“No!” Leaf said with unusual steel in his voice. “We must not let Sun know about this, promise me!”

“Why? If you don’t tell me, then I won’t promise you.”

“You don’t know him… ugh! Your sister and her companion shouldn’t have killed me. If we let Sun know that there’s a way to find Alice, he won’t let them off the hook. Your sister will be in danger too, so you have to promise me, you cannot mention this matter to Sun before we leave.”

Ann said somewhat dubiously, “We couldn’t even beat them, so someone as weak as Sun… I mean, he’s not that strong, right? Leaf, don’t get angry. I’m not deliberately making fun of him!”

“He’s not that strong, haha!”

Leaf said very helplessly, “If that were the case, then why would our third shared rule be, ‘No matter how pathetic the Sun Knight looks, never ruffle his feathers?’”

Having heard all this, I thought for a bit and then walked back to lie on my bed. Then, rubbing my eyes and acting as if I had just gotten up, I yelled, “Leaf? Leaf! I’m dying of hunger!”

Leaf pushed open the door and exclaimed happily, “Sun, you’re awake?”

“Awake enough to feel hungry, what do you think?” I said moodily.

Leaf chuckled and asked cheerfully, “How does eating some congee sound?”

I quickly replied, “No, I want to eat meat.”

“But you just woke up, and if you eat something hard to digest, I’m afraid…”

I rolled my eyes and couldn’t help saying, “Leaf, save it, you are not Judgment. And besides, you are a good guy, so I’m not afraid of you. If I say I want meat, then I’m having meat.”

Leaf stayed silent for a bit and finally said anxiously, “Fine, I will tell the kitchen to chop up the meat into little pieces to make meat soup for you.”

Leaf wasted no time and came back in the blink of an eye, carrying the soup. As I was feasting on the soup, Leaf explained the situation to me, even though I had actually overheard everything already. Basically, Mike and Austin had left to ask for backup, and since I was unconscious, Leaf and Ann had stayed behind to protect me.

Leaf said, “Sun, I also asked them to contact the Church of the God of Light, so I think the Church will be sending someone over.”

I hope that that someone isn’t Judgment. I nodded at Leaf and swallowed the last bit of meat soup.

With the sweet aroma of the meat soup gone, I vaguely smelt some kind of foul smell. Wait, it can’t be… I lowered my head to smell myself and almost died from the odor. I had turned into Supreme Stinky Knight1.

I frowned and exclaimed, “Leaf, I smell awful! Buy a set of new clothes for me. Also… Princess Ann.”

When Ann, who had been standing quietly, heard me calling her, she paused before asking, “What?”

“Can you please get me a bucket of hot water?” I asked insipidly.

Ann did not answer, but Leaf immediately said warmly, “Sorry for the inconvenience, Ann. I will go buy some clothes for Sun.”

At this time, Ann finally answered, albeit in a grudging tone of voice. “Fine!”

I ordered Leaf, “They have to be white, and also, get the seamstresses to sew on the Sun emblem too. Didn’t you say that someone from the Church is coming? I can’t bear to look disrespectful in front of everyone.”

Leaf hesitated and then said with a nod, “Okay.”

Leaf left to buy my clothes. Not a moment later, Ann came in with a bucket of hot water, and set it down with a thud. With a dissatisfied tone, she said, “Here! I will leave now.”

“Wait.” I felt the water and said dully, “The water’s too hot.”

Ann was probably either feeling guilty, or she was doing this for Leaf’s sake. Either way, although she was unhappy, she was still completely obedient and knelt down to feel the water upon hearing my words.

I smirked, and summoned the water element…

Instantly, the bucket of bath water combined together with the water element I summoned, wrapping onto Ann’s body like a chain. She froze momentarily and then started to struggle right after, trying to break free of those water chains. However, water has no form, so all she could do was pass through the streams of water with her fists. Finally, I froze all the water all at once, with Ann stuck in the middle of those icicles, unable to move.

“Impossible! How can a basic freezing spell trap me?” Ann shrieked while she struggled ferociously. However, the ice around her body showed no signs of breaking.

I replied with a smile, “According to my knowledge of magic, a basic level spell plus a basic level spell is equal to an intermediate level spell, so I repeated the same freezing spell over and over again five times. I wonder, what level of magic is it now? But no matter what, that ice is no more fragile than the sword on your body, so you’ll just hurt yourself if you keep on struggling.”

After saying this, I smiled and reached my hand inside Ann’s clothes…

“Y-you!” Ann’s voice sounded like she was close to tears as she shouted, “Stop right now or I will yell!”

Hearing that, I casually used Whirlwind, letting the wind spiral along the walls in order to block off all sound. I whispered to Ann, “Hah! Go ahead, but too bad, even if you scream until your voice becomes hoarse, no one will hear you.”

Her voice shook heavily as she spoke, “L-Leaf is going to be back soon. He won’t let you do this!”

I answered nonchalantly, “He has to wait for them to sew on the Sun emblem, so he’s not going to be back for a while.”

“So you planned this in advance!” Ann screamed. “You despicable bastard!”

Why do all princesses like to call me a despicable bastard?

I ignored her screams, and took out a flat box a little smaller than the palm of my hand from her secret pocket. A fragrant smell overflowed as I opened it, and when I touched the inside of the box, it felt like some kind of ointment. Maybe it was some kind of perfume cream for girls.

Immediately, Ann stopped crying, and she sounded utterly astonished as she spoke, “How did you know…”

She suddenly stopped, and I finished the sentence for her, “How did I know that this is the magical object that you used to track Princess Alice, right?”

“You, you…” Ann sounded frightened and distressed, “So you have been hiding your abilities all this time.”

I sneered. Of course. No matter what, I am still the Sun Knight, so I couldn’t really be completely useless, right?

“You are too scary.” Ann’s voice shook as she continued, “You concealed your swordsmanship stance and footwork so well, and even pretended that you can’t even run a mile without panting to death. Acting just like someone who can’t use a sword, someone with terrible stamina…so all of this was just a farce!”

Ann laughed and said calmly, “But, you won’t be able to activate this magical object, heh, heh… Ack!”

I used a Wind Blade to slice open Ann’s skin, letting her blood drip inside the box.

“H-how did you know…?” Ann’s voice sounded like she was about to cry again.

I rolled my eyes. Pink had almost as many magical devices as she did lollipops, and I had basically rolled about in those since I was small, so a small device like this could hardly stump me.

As Ann’s blood dripped down, I heard the sound of a click. The bottom of the box flipped open to reveal a hidden compartment. There was a very tiny magic circle inside. I touched it, noting that it was very detailed and was probably very rare. Still, Pink had loads of these kinds of things in her house.

Then, I raised my head and said to Ann, “These chains will shatter in half an hour after I leave. If you don’t want some stranger to take advantage of you, then I suggest you don’t scream and attract people over! If you do attract a bad guy, then you’ll just have to suffer through it! Also, when Leaf comes back, tell him that I will exact justice for him.”

Without waiting for Ann to answer, I injected the wind element into the magic circle, which expanded all of a sudden and engulfed my entire body, taking me to where Princess Alice was.

When I felt that I had teleported to the destination, I immediately yelled, “Dragon’s Saint Brigandine! In the name of the descendants of Dragons, I command thee, activate!”

“Sister2?”

It was a woman’s voice. She wore robe-like clothes, and the wind element around her body was surging. This had to be Princess Alice, and she was even a wind mage.

She was very close to me, just two steps away, so I hurriedly stepped forward and grabbed her, yelling, “Don’t move!”

Apparently, she was not very obedient, immediately wanting to counter with wind magic. Unfortunately for her, I interfered with her magic. Although I didn’t know advanced magic, even Aldrizzt, that hundred-year old mage, had bluntly said that he couldn’t compare with me over the ability of gathering elements.

She gasped in surprise, “Y-you are not an assassin, you are a mage!”

“No to both. I am a holy knight.” I said coldly, “Are you blind? Can’t you see the shining Divine Sun Sword in my hands? I am the Sun Knight!”

After saying all that in one breath, I had to admit that I’d been wanting to scream for a long time, “I am a holy knight! Not a cleric, but a holy knight, holy knight, holy knight (insert a hundred more echoes)!”

Now that I had actually said it, it felt so good that if the situation had allowed it, I might have been overcome with the impulse to cry!

“The Sun Knight? How is that possible?” Alice asked with a shaky voice.

“Alice!”

Just then, the dark knight hurriedly rushed over. The amount of light element overflowing from me must have grabbed his attention. He quickly sprinted our way at lightning speed.

“Hold it right there!”

I firmly grabbed the princess, pressing the Divine Sun Sword tightly against her neck. I then coldly addressed the dark knight, “You don’t care about this woman’s life anymore?”

The dark knight’s footsteps slowed, but didn’t stop. I pressed the Divine Sun Sword a bit tighter against the princess’s neck, causing her to gasp.

“Stop!” the dark knight finally stilled, and yelled out, “You can’t hurt her, she’s a princess!”

I laughed for a good while, and pressed my blade even harder against the princess’s neck, though she restrained herself from making any noise this time. “Are you sure?” I asked mockingly.

The dark knight said with a shaky voice, “You are a knight, and you’re even the Sun Knight whom the entire continent knows. You wouldn’t hurt a woman. That would ruin your reputation. You wouldn’t do that…”

I laughed and asked, “Then, do you know what ‘the whole continent knows’ the Sun Knight hates the most?”

“Undead creatures,” he answered reflexively.

I barked out, “Wrong! What the Sun Knight hates the most is seeing his holy knights get killed!”

After yelling, I collected my agitated feelings and said calmly, “From this moment onwards, I warn you, if you dare to move, I will cut off this woman’s hand. And the more you move, the more bits of her I get to chop off.”

Both Alice and the dark knight didn’t budge an inch, nor utter a word. Maybe I had scared them or something, but that didn’t matter. I then summoned a large amount of water element and froze it into a dozen or so icicles which floated around the dark knight’s proximity. Sure enough, he did not move even a single hair despite all this.

Instead, it was the Princess Alice in my arms who started to scream, “You despicable bastard! Eagle, don’t listen to him! He wouldn’t dare!”

Now I became certain that every princess in the world only had one way of insulting others, and that was calling them a despicable bastard. There was no other insult.

With a neutral tone, I said to the dark knight, “I forgot to tell you, but activating your battle aura also counts as moving.”

After I spoke, more than ten icicles flew toward his torso and limbs, causing a succession of cracking sounds, but he didn’t move an inch even under heavy attack. He forced himself to withstand the attacks without moving, which in turn caused his injuries to worsen. I heard the sound of several bones shattering.

“Eagle…” Alice almost fainted, her legs no longer supporting her. The only thing that kept her upright was me.

“You can move now,” I said indifferently.

At this time, the dark knight finally slipped to the ground slowly. I then launched the largest icicle and smashed it into his back ruthlessly.

“Umph!” He tried to stifle a groan.

What a proud knight. I admired him somewhat, as I was sure that that last blow had probably broken a lot of his ribs, but he didn’t so much as cry out.

I let go of Princess Alice and warned her leisurely, “Don’t even think about using magic on me, or I will help disinfect and sterilize your dark knight using Hell’s Fire. I guarantee you that he’ll be so clean that there won’t even be any ashes left over after that.”

Alice shoved me hard and immediately ran to her dark knight’s side, crying out loud when she saw his injuries. Although the dark knight was wounded gravely and was most likely in a semi-unconscious state, he still quietly soothed the princess. All I heard was, “I am fine, don’t cry,” over and over.

At this, I couldn’t help but start chuckling. We had wanted to save her, but I don’t think that they thought of this quest the same way we did. This is too absurd. What do they mean when they say that knights save princesses… the princess might not necessarily even want to be saved! To her, we were actually the bad guys trying to tear her and her lover apart, right?

“You made one mistake,” I said coldly, “and that was killing Leaf! If you hadn’t killed him, I might have considered not separating you. However, at this point I don’t plan to break you two up. You can go to hell together!”

Silence fell before Alice murmured to herself, “You are going to kill us? How can this be…”

“Why not?” I smirked, “The second you killed the Leaf Knight, you should have known that the Sun Knight would chase you to the ends of the world for revenge!”

Hearing this, she exclaimed in alarm, “I am a princess!”

“Oh, really?” I questioned in a soft, gentle tone. “But I don’t see any princesses. I only see a kidnapper and his accomplice.”

Alice’s breathing turned ragged, and she shook as she replied, “Sun Knight, if you kill me, my mother will not let you or the Church of the God of Light get away with it!”

Unconcerned, I retorted, “Oh? But I’m an assassin, and I see no Sun Knight. Do you?”

Alice sobbed, and tried to carry the nearly unconscious dark knight, as if wanting to escape with him.

However, her strength wasn’t anywhere close to being enough to move a man, especially when the man was wearing armor. Still, she refused to give up, and tried to drag him to safety with all her might.

Seeing them like this, my heart’s berserker state diminished by half, and I found it difficult to proceed with the tortures I had in my mind a second ago. Had I known this earlier, I never would have wounded that dark knight so much. If he had had the strength to retaliate, then I probably could have held onto my fury, but now I couldn’t even do that.

With my enthusiasm waning, I said, “Fine, I will give you a slightly less painful death.”

I gathered the dark element, planning to use what Aldrizzt had once used, “Encroaching Death,” as it could kill someone silently and painlessly…

“Sun, stop!” A shout came from the sky.

At the same time, I felt the dark element I had summoned in my hands being dispelled.

I raised my head. The opponent was wearing a cloak-like garment, and even though their leaking dark aura wasn’t strong, they gave me a sense of deep mystery. That aura, I had felt it only on one other person before… No! I shouldn’t say person. She hadn’t been a person for a long time.

Clenching my fists, I squeezed my words through my teeth, “Pink, so when you said that you moved, you meant that you moved to the Cathedral of the Shadow God?”

Footnotes

1 “Supreme Stinky Knight”: The beginning characters of Sun and Supreme are the same in Chinese. Sun is making a pun here.

2 “Sister”: Alice calls Ann her “second younger sister” here. In Chinese, there is a distinction made between older and younger sisters.

    I’ve been having a very bay day but reading this pasted a smile on my face. I continue to look forward on the updates. >_<

  2. Oh wow, my god I never would have thought Sun would be like that, outside of his mind. o.o

  3. EdwardGrave

    Sun, I like your attitude, always have, and now you step into this dark personality…I just don’t know what to say

  4. Michael Chandra

    Got to love Sun’s temper when he’s really mad. :D

  5. XD And there goes my theory.

    =D PINK!!!~

    O.o But Sun is being SUPER evil this chapter!
    T.T But I’m so happy for him. He finally was able to say he was a holy knight, not an assassin…

  6. wow.. Grisia has gone berserk. He’s really furious about Leaf’s death… thanks for the translation!

  7. Well, now they know why you never ruffle Sun’s feathers… lol. Pink moved? Was that said somewhere, or did we just know of that now?

    Also, in this sentence: “Eagle…” Alice almost fainted, her legs longer supporting her. The only thing that kept her upright was me.
    should there be a ‘no’ somewhere around her legs… longer supporting her?

    Thanks for the chapter as always. :)

    • lucathia

      Whoops, that “no” went missing… added back in now. :3

      Pink moved houses at the end of volume 2! I believe Sun mentions it in the extra chapter to Roland.

    • @saz
      I wouldn’t say the line “ruffle Sun’s feathers” but the general idea of not screwing with Sun has been constantly mentioned throughout the story :D

  8. Exile Wrath

    O_O
    Pink…BAD PINKIE!
    But I have to say that berserker Sun is awesome ^_^
    Thanks for the translation!

  9. alright im very suspicious that whoever called that is either a genie, psychic or read the untranslated chapter XD
    but yup, thats sun for you XD

  10. Woah. I knew Sun’s vengeance was something to be feared, but I never expected him to get so angry like that.

    I love how Ann HAD to mention that she was amazed at how Sun managed to act like such a weakling before if he was so powerful. Haha, he’s powerful alright. Just not physically ^^;;

  11. Mockingjay

    Thank you for the awesome chapter!!
    I hope we will see more of Grisia’s plot and wicked plan!

  12. dollyfishe

    to mmy horror … i still can heard amgine voices drifted on my head ~><~ u guys should think of anything like this for next year april's fool. the effects are lasting longer than expected !!!

  13. wow, this is a great chapter! but one part doesn’t seem to make sense :
    “But I don’t see any princesses. I only see a kidnapper and his accomplice.”
    would it make more sense if you replaced “kidnapper” with “murderer” or “killer”?
    but if that’s how it’s translated, then…

    • lucathia

      Sun refers to how he “kidnapped” the princess. Even though she was her kidnapper’s accomplice. That’s how it is in the original text!

  14. ‘Slap!’
    my jaw dropped. I swear it did. I didn’t see that coming, specially not from Leaf

    haha, I laughed so hard at the mention of the shared rule. could perfectly see this kind of rule applied for Neo, but before this chapter, it was rather hard to see it applied for Grisia

    Ann commenting on Sun’s act, haha, no, sorry Ann, he really is just that bad, he is scary just not at that… …….(well, he really is scarily awful at being a knight, I’d be scared to death if I’d have to fight on his side, with him having to attack like a knight)

    god, Sun is scary

    Sun should be glad that ‘despicable’ is the strongest cuss princesses give him, damn, with what he just did, it really becomes a mild cuss

    • CocoFlower

      @KuwaNeko
      But it was their fault for killing Leaf :P

    • @CocoFlower
      with the appaearance of pink im now guessing that she was behind it and was counting on suns ability to use resurection ^^; though i cant tell whether she miscalculated or if she was in fact trying to lure him

  15. thanks for the update!

  16. Your such a badass Sun Knight.

  17. Shadowmist

    Paragraph 46, “Leaf left to buy my clothes….,and sat it down with a thud…”
    Shouldn’t it be “set it down with a thud.”?

  18. shinikage

    now i cant wait for the next chapter, lets hope this time they manage to get it done on schedule

    • lucathia

      Just so you know, the next chapter will probably be late. We’ll probably see a lot of chapters go up all at once. *coughs*

    • dollyfishe

      @lucathia
      then it’s time to cry cry while waiting ~><~
      *sob sob*

  19. Achilleus

    Urm, Sun made a big mistake on his part Oo guess even he gets careless when he’s angry. He revealed his identity…for his plan it would suffice since he wanted to slaughter them both but now he’s screwed if he can’t kill them. It would have been so easy to say: “I’m Hell-knight” as Roland aka Hell knight made a similar armor and is known to be an assassin or spy :O

    • @Achilleus
      No prob, he mentioned this ‘Unconcerned, I retorted, “Oh? But I’m an assassin, and I see no Sun Knight. Do you?”’
      Seriously, no one will believe that Sun is a bad person…. well, except his teacher, Aldrizzt and Judgement? And also Pink. Err, plus Roland too? XD

    • Achilleus

      @Shuu
      Actually it’s still a problem as the two aren’t nobodies but a princess and a high ranking member of the church of the shadow god.
      Even his teacher told him to kill the dark knight before…

    • @Achilleus
      wells it theoretically wouldnt have made a difference since before pinks arrival sun seriously planned to kill them ^^;

    • The Man Behind the Curtain

      No witnesses, no crime.

    • Alyss

      @Shuu
      Plus all the other Holy Knight-Captains, Adair and the entire Sun knight Platoon, the Pope, the current King and previous King, Princess Ann, etc…

  20. Fantastic chapter. Never expected pink to arrive. I just wanted to know if sun is still blind? I mean it seems like he can `see`again but it can be that it´s his sensing.

    • Achilleus

      @Mist
      The following sentence, I took from the text, should answer your question :)
      I touched it, noting that it was very detailed and was probably very rare.

      Why would he need to touch it to see it’s very detailed?

    • Lulu-chan

      @Mist
      I was thinking the same thing, but from what I just read I think he’s blind. He didn’t use “see” this whole chapter, and at the end, when he looked up he could have recognized Pink just by looking at her but he recognized her by her aura (if she didn’t change over night lolz)
      I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
      Ohhh and I love Sun, I loved him from the very beginning, damn he has such an awesome personality, my favorite character ^-^

  21. GabrielTDO

    pink you have betrayed me… until you hurt Leaf you and Aldrizzt were tied for my favorite character.

    • @GabrielTDO
      XD I know, right? Pink and Aldrizzt were my favorites too! But now Pink… Q.Q Pink… T.T At least I never liked stawberries in the first place…

  22. MoonlightFlower

    Pink did not really betray anyone. She just do what she wants to do, like how she seriously try to kill the ex-Hell Knight in the three ways duel. I don’t think Pink would ever “help” anyone in the first place, seeing how even Sun fear for his life when asking for her help ~.~

    • Alyss

      @MoonlightFlower
      It wasn’t really clear whether she actually tried to kill Elijah back then or if it was just the princess having hysterics…
      thou personally, I think it was the latter.

  23. Grisia is as awesome as ever. I knew this was going to happen so it was a treat to read this chapter all over again :D

  24. Hagane Kuragari

    I thought Sun was blind last chapter. Did I interpret it wrong? O.o
    Sun is so awesome this chapter. Definitely breaking the stereotypes for knights. I think I’m in love

  25. Great work as always.
    Ann dialogue is great:


    How could one be at the same time so right and so wrong? Sun is scary and strong but for not for his swordsmanship Ann.

    the “King vs King” elude me, wrong chapter title? or maybe “king” as an other meaning.

    • @Zaz
      wrong use of quote function:

      “You, you…” Ann sounded frightened and distressed, “So you have been hiding your abilities all this time.”
      I sneered. Of course. No matter what, I am still the Sun Knight, so I couldn’t really be completely useless, right?
      “You are too scary.” Ann’s voice shook as she continued, “You concealed your swordsmanship stance and footwork so well, and even pretended that you can’t even run a mile without panting to death. Acting just like someone who can’t use a sword, someone with terrible stamina…so all of this was just a farce!”

    • eilinel

      The “king” here refers to the leader. If “king” confuses you, try substitute it with “Final Boss vs (another) Final Boss” like in a game… XD.

  26. FlabberGhast

    Man, I feel like “Unforseen Revenge” from Asura’s Wrath (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Q2sdAflAPA) or “Shadowlord” from NieR (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IEbfDtDaUc) fit pretty damn well for when Sun is clearly skirting along the edges of the Moral Event Horizon. Which in retrospect would probably include the majority of this–incredibly awesome– Chapter.

    I must say that I just adore how this story deconstructs the hell out of the “Mary Sue” (or in this case, “Martin Sue”) Trope.

  27. Sun is so cool >_<

  28. Thanks for the new chapter. Sun is simply awesome when angry, kind of like a anti-hero who will do anything to accomplish his task.

  29. Sun went against the kings plan, broke a possible marriage, and interrupted an official challenge with a creature of darkness (though no one knows he planned it) all on the original base that Mike beat his vice-captain near-death. Anyone who didn’t think that Sun would go demon for outright killing one of his Knight-captains, what have you been smoking?

    • @blargin7
      I shudder to think what would’ve happened if Sun hadn’t been able to resurrect Leaf.

  30. kuroneko13

    wait wait wait… is sun blind or isn’t he??? the end of the last chapter was so vague about this!!! …this would mean that sun is using his element thingy to see now…. waaah!! that would mean that sun is really blind!! TT^TT (i know…. i’m a bit slow with somethings….) this is really weird with him blind…. it’s different but i can’t explain how… and although it’s different…. IT’S STILL FLIPPING AWESOME!!!!!!! THANK YOU FOR THE UPDATE AND I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE!!!!!!!

      @kuroneko13
      yeah! And I was like kind of expecting some drama between Sun and Pink that why should he not kill Princess and the Knight when they first killed Leaf that cost him to lost his eyesight! hohoho.

      But, the way Yu Wo (in Sun’s point of view)… describing that accurately what is happening around him is kinda eerie… especially for a blind person…

      @Rona ♥
      i know!!! its so weird!!! weirder than the spelling of weird!!! how would that work with the elemental sensey thingy? i got the impression when it was first introduced that it was just vague people shaped (or the shape of whatever object he was ‘looking’ at) things

  31. Holy crap… Sun can now use Hell Fire! That’s like Advanced dark magic, right?
    He can kick butt with any people now by sending hell fires all over the place with divine earth barrier shielding him!

    • Gohankuten

      @Brian
      Only works if noone knows its Sun or he’s planning to kill all witnesses anyway. Since if people knows it’s Sun and he can’t kill them then his reputation hinders him along with the threat from Neo lol.

    • Rona ♥

      @Gohankuten
      When was Hell’s Fire mentioned again?

    • @Rona ♥
      Hell’s Fire was mentioned in v3c6, I think. Aldrizzt uses Hell’s Fire to incinerate a skeleton in the cave in the land of darkness, but then it spreads to the other skeletons and sets them on fire. Since the skeletons kept charging into the fire, the fire took a while to burn out. While they were waiting for the fire to burn out, Grisia, Neo and Aldrizzt had lunch. They used the flames to roast their meat, causing Aldrizzt to worry whether or not roasting meat on a dark fire would be healthy for the human body or not. Grisia pointed out that Aldrizzt was not human, so there was no need to worry.

      @15B
      ah, ah. I remember now. Thank you!

    • Brian

      @Gohankuten
      PFT, Neo Smeo, even he can’t break the unbreakable Divine Earth Shield, that’s why Neo said fighting Sun is more difficult than taking on Advanced Wizards since he can just barricade himself behind the shield and send Hell Fires all over the place.
      Not that he will since Sun seems to respect Neo a lot.

    • @Brian
      respect is a bit overly generous ^^; id think outright terror is a better description XD regardless of neos actual strength grisla would rather face a dragon than even consider battling Neo ^^; possibly even the god of light himself before daring to battle neo ^^;

    • dahlys

      Even if Neo couldn’t break the shield, he’d just smash the ground under Grisia’s feet and send him tumbling into an endless abyss of despair…

    • Brian

      @dahlys
      What if Sun learned the spell of flight? Cast flight, cast barrier, then start sending hell fires all over the place! BTW, Sun saw Ad cast flight, right? Why can’t he fly?

  32. Having a terribly strong urge to draw chibi fan art of sun rolling around in rare magical items now >_<!!!

  33. Really! These two princesses are such spoiled b*tches. The first one runs away and abandons her obligations as a princess then later kills someone innocent for the sake of ‘love’ and to stall Sun, the other one is just as bad, acting all high and mighty even after her sister KILLED Leaf.
    I know Sun has taught them a rough lesson not to toy around people for their own selfish reasons, but I’m still so pissed. :/

    • Rona ♥

      @:/
      yeah. Spoiled bitches may be the exact term for them.
      Especially when they think they’re invincible and untouchable JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE PRINCESSES!

      “You dare to hurt me? I’m a Princess!” Screw you, princess or not, no one should mess with Sun’s holy knights!
      haha. i’m really pissed and aggravated by these annoying characters. :P

  34. great chapter as usual but how about chainging the voodoo dols part?

    • lucathia

      Can you explain a bit more about the reason why you feel cursed dolls should be the translation? We need more information to make a decision about that. I think I know why you’re making this suggestion, but I can’t be sure unless you explain it a bit more.

    • cathulu

      @lucathia
      the behaviour and description regarding the doll clearly vitiate from the traditional behaviour documented relating to voodoo. the use of dolls in Asian tradition is based on the creation of a union between the object and the person or other object it refers to via the use of a set series of mental proceedings within a defined combination of time and place. this process is included but not solely described by the Japanese verb nazoraëru witch implies the formation of a bond or link creating a temporary equality (hope it is easy to understand what I am trying to indicate using this specific verb) between the elements implied.
      this is one of the rare occasions in witch foren languages can offer a beater approaching to the concept. the doll embodies the person becoming his or hers or its fetish ( (Nome) a charm superstitiously believed to embody magical powers not a different meaning) but more specifically it is also a surrogate of the person.
      this is commonly used in omniodo where the doll becomes a shield in imitation (in the supernatural view of demons and curses) of a person and will be burdened with the negative effects.
      in Shinto this process is also employed but in a different prospective a item that becomes the physical manifestation of a Kami must resemble its self the god-spirit-ghost-(etcetera) this however does not apply to all forms of Shinto including the more ritualised and more studied one practiced within the imperial family.
      voodoo is a fusion of the primitive forms of spiritualistic warship of nature and the dead that combined with the ill understood concepts of Christian puritanism forced upon the newly arrived black slaves in the new continent with trade.
      to conclude the use of rituals or tools born from voodoo tradition imply the following of this cult wilts a curse doll implies no particular devotion to a religion.

    • lucathia

      Thank you for the explanation. We will discuss this and make a decision about the term.

  35. Oh my god of light, sun was so mad. I had imagined that he’D be capable of torturing and then killing someone, but i didn’t expect it to be actually done.
    Also, i was also a bit confused about sun being blind still, but reading the previous comments made me see he’s still blind.
    However, i had thought he wouldn’t go anywhere w/out a bath! Lol
    I’m also a bit confused about their location, just where was he teleported to? I guess it was a forest, but seems that even yu wo was mad at the princess and the dark knight killing leaf and was too focused on vengance to remember to mention any location, lol (or maybe the location wasn’t mentioned cause sun can’t see where he is?)

    About pink… I have mixed feelings. First, i don’t think she’s interfered because she’s joined the cath. Of the shadow god, maybe that was just sun asumption. I’d wait to see what’s she really up to, before admitting that she’s going against sun. On the other hand, somewhere at the beggining of the tale it’s said that the legendary 38th sun knight defeated the undying witchm after i had read the first chapters where pink is introduced, i started to suspect this undying witch might be pink. Does that mean that she’ll be sun’s nemesis? Or would it turn out as in roland’s case, where they are now comrades?

    To the translators team, thank you for the awesome chapter!!! :DDDD

  36. NanoLaughing

    Dang, knowing that now Pink is going into the fray, something WILL happen!!! D: uhm, probably. Call it a female’s instinct. But Pink… Is bad news to me, Even in the God of Light forgave her, I will not! I just have this gut feeling even if Pink decides to help Sun, “every action there is a reaction.” So… Putting it simply, IF Pink chooses to help Sun, a price will be paid. IF she decides to help the princess, a price will be paid. If she just leaves. A. Price. Will. Be. Paid. Question is, what are the sacrifices of the choices in life? Oh, almighty God of Light! Hear my my utterly useless struggle. The sacrifices made, will they be of Right? Send LSK fans a sign! Hear me, please! Show us THE NEXT CHAPTER!! (oh yeah, great translation you guys, totally epic. MADE MY DAY)

  37. THANKS FOR THE CHAPTER! I love how leaf flipped out n slapped Ann! Sun is crazy in this chapter as well I mean everyone went against their perceived characters! Doesn’t Sun only attack when he’s sure to win? He didn’t attack d knight b4 but now he takes on both him n the princess? LOVING IT!!

    • Gohankuten

      @Bm Werks
      He only attacks when he’s sure to win and he would gain something from it. He won’t attack if he has nothing to gain and when he first met the dark knight he had nothing to gain from attacking him so he didn’t. This time he has revenge to gain so of course he will attack.

  38. Cookiestars

    Isn’t sun blind? x.x someone please explain for me …

    • dahlys

      Yu Wo wants you to be kept in suspense for now. So keep waiting for the next chapter, and the next…

    • Rona ♥

      @Cookiestars
      think he’s using his super sensitive “other senses” to be able to ‘see’ so perfectly.

  39. I’m getting the feeling that Pink might actually be the representative of the Shadow god. Also, I’m really curious how the whole situation will play out. I mean, due to what happened earlier Sun is actually Pink’s apprentice, and he announced his identity to Alice and Eagle, but now Pink isn’t letting him kill them. It’s a right mess and I can’t wait to see it get untangled somehow. =3

    • Gohankuten

      @Akaittou
      I wouldn’t be surprised if Sun has some memory modification spell or something that he will use if he can’t kill em lol.

  40. tyrannusumbra

    On the subject of Sun still being blind I have something to add that makes me think that he isnt blind. “The opponent was wearing a cloak-like garment”, now unless clothes have aura’s (which I highly doubt), how could Sun know what she was wearing?

    • Rona ♥

      @tyrannusumbra
      hmm, point taken, but it might just be an overlooked case or a slip? because the statements that confirm that he IS really blind are much, much more.

      oh well. let’s just hope the next chapters would reveal this case. ^^

  41. Thank you for the chapter! I can’t wait until the next one.

  42. Is it just me or when Pink arrived here as a part of the Cathedral of the Shadow God… I suspect her being the ultra powerful “shadowpriest” that helped kill Leaf? >.<

    Thanks for the chapter! It was really, really breath stopping. So intense! Sun is really a formidable enemy. When will the next chapter come out? I caaaaan't wait! Soooo goood! :)

    • Achilleus

      @Rona ♥
      Considering the new side story it’s highly unlikely Pink was the shadowpriest as she wouldn’t dare to piss Sun off.

  43. thanks so much for this chapter. i thought Sun would be literally spanking asses here, but Pink cuts in all of the action. I wouldn’t be surprised if Pink was searching for followers of the CotSG (sorry it was long to type) too or possible knights-to-be for CotSG.

    Just a suggestion:
    “I raised my head. The opponent was wearing a cloak-like garment, and even though their leaking dark aura wasn’t strong, they gave me a sense of deep mystery. That aura, I had felt it only on one other person before… No! I shouldn’t say person. She hadn’t been a person for a long time.”

    I think instead of using “they”, it should be “it”.

    …..The opponent was wearing a cloak-like garment, even though their leaking dark aura wasn’t strong – it gave me a sense of deep mystery. That aura, I had felt it only on one other person before… No! I shouldn’t say person. She hadn’t been a person for a long time….

    seems to be better since it refers to the aura, right? anyway i’ll leave it to your judgement. i am not a native english speaker.

  44. Sun is the best. Yes, he does have that typical protagonist flaw: he wants to protect people and can’t stand to see his friends hurt; but he also has that evil inclination for taking revenge… I LOVE IT!
    And I think it’s clear that he’s really blind, I mean… he made barely no mention of colors, and the details he gave could have been gathered through other senses + his ability. So, remains the question: for how long?
    Also… Leaf was revived, I know, but it’s just that phrases like “They shouldn’t have killed me” sound so… weird. Lol.

  45. Ok, I loved the chapter, but I’m left wondering; what part of this is king vs. king? The rest of the chapter headings made obvious sense, but not this one.

    • lucathia

      Eilinel answered this question a bit higher up in a different comment. “King” refers to people with power. You can also think of this as final boss versus another final boss. I believe the king part refers to Sun vs the dark knight in a clash of power. Or perhaps even vs Pink.

    • dahlys

      @PNG_pyro
      The King of the Church of Light (Sun Knight) vs the King of the Cathedral of Shadow (Eagle)? It’s a battle between the kings of light and darkness…but their personalities seem to be reversed. LOL

    • @dahlys
      i dimly recall sun hinting a chapter or so back that the big cheese of the shadow god church wasnt a knight though

    • dahlys

      @Jasae Bushae
      big cheese, no. but nobody said the big cheese had to be male…it might be…Pink? (Shall not reveal anything more spoilery)

  46. that’s the man sun..^^ rage when the time needed… destroy anything in your way /gg

  47. Anonymous

    Having read the epilogue, now rereading this and enjoying various hints. ‘when I touched the inside of the box, it felt like some kind of ointment’… ‘When I felt that I had teleported to the destination’… ‘It was a woman’s voice’… (And, of course, no visual recognition of Pink.)

  48. the49thalias

    Oh my God… I can’t wait to see this in manhwa! Have to see it! (When it’s update that is, and who knows when that will be…) Finally Sun’s dark side isn’t just a inner voice! Rejoice! /throws confetti/

    • Unfortunately, the manhua isn’t being published anymore. Something to do with the publishing company. It covered events up to the end of volume 2. So we might never see volume 3 in manhua form, unless the manhua rights are renegotiated or something else is done. ):
