The Legend of Sun Knight V6C10: “Demon King”

The Legend of Sun Knight Volume 6: The Undying Lich, Part Two

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


The Tenth Week of Annihilating an Undying Lich: “Demon King” – translated by Kiyutsuna

“After you went missing, we searched everywhere for you and also sent someone to alert the king. He immediately gave the evacuation order. The next month was like hell. While we were busy searching for you, we also had to evacuate the entirety of Leaf Bud City.”

“Also, we had to take care of the matter with Charlotte and Stephen. We had no evidence at all to accuse the two of them of being the Demon King and a lich. Silent Eagle was also skeptical about the claim.”

“The Pope said there were traces of spatial overlap in Stephen’s room, not that we understood what a spatial overlap was… Anyway, the point is he said he had a way to find you!”

“However we were worried that citizens might get injured in a head-on clash, so we waited until the evacuation was finished to make our move. The plan was for the Pope to get you out while we stalled Charlotte and Stephen. But they found out halfway through and snatched you back, so we ended up fighting in the plaza.”

The Twelve Holy Knights sat in the meeting room. Everyone was talking over each other to report the happenings of the past month.

I was still trying to wrap my head around the fact that a whole month had already passed. I had practically only closed and then opened my eyes, and in the end, not only was a whole month gone, so much had happened too.

Leaf said with a smile, “Thank goodness for Knight-Captain Hell’s presence. That dark magic of Charlotte’s was truly frighteningly powerful. If Hell hadn’t been present, there was no way we could have stalled them.”

I turned to face Roland. The latter was at a bit of a loss about what to do, and he frantically said, “It was nothing. It was all thanks to everyone working together.”

Seeing him in a fluster was truly quite funny. Despite his embarrassment, he could not help the smile that tugged at the corners of his mouth. It looks like Roland should be quite happy being the Hell Knight…

Sun, good job!

I was startled but immediately realized this was probably Pink using psychic magic to communicate with me.

However, you probably don’t want to be the Demon King, right? Hehe, I have a way to let you not be the Demon King yet not have to die! Are you surprised? If you don’t want to be the Demon King, come and find me!

I knew it! I rolled my eyes. That wretch Pink, she was clearly watching the excitement from the sidelines and taking advantage of the situation. Without an ounce of effort, her demon king candidate could actually become the Demon King. It was so easy that it was ridiculous!

I locked onto Pink’s location, and then responded.

Isn’t it too dangerous for me to go find you by myself? If your candidate wants to kill me later, I can’t win against the both of you alone.

Hmph! If I wanted to kill you, you would have died a hundred times already.

She was right. If Pink had wanted to kill me, she definitely had many opportunities to do so.

Bring Roland along, then. It should be enough to have a death lord with you, right? But you can’t bring anyone other than that. I’m worried that you’ll kill my candidate too!

All right.

Then come here! Oh, right, remember to bring my strawberry shaved ice.

Just after I finished my negotiations with Pink, I regained awareness of my surroundings to find everyone staring at me.. I quickly explained to everyone, “Just now, I was communicating with the last lich using psychic magic. We have come to an agreement. She knows how to let the other candidate become the Demon King without taking my life. So right now I have to pay her a visit to take care of things once and for all.”

“Is it Pink?” Judgment frowned as he said, “Are you sure she’s not lying to you? Is there really such a method?”

I nodded, saying, “I’ve confirmed it with Stephen. There really is a method. Pink also understands me well and knows that I don’t want to be the Demon King. Since I’m already willing to give up the demon king position to her candidate, she should have no reason to clash with me.”

Judgment was still worried and said, “I’m coming with you.”

I replied, somewhat reluctantly, “Pink said I’m only allowed to take Roland along, in case I wanted to kill her candidate.”

Roland then added, “Pink won’t cause trouble. She has helped us many times before.”

Judgment thought for a bit, and then gave a nod as he said, “Then you two be careful.”

I stood up, told Ice that I was going to his room to pick up the strawberry syrup, and then called for Roland. The two of us went to leave the meeting room together. Before leaving, I turned and said, “When I come back later, this Demon King case will be completely resolved. In order to save time and let the citizens of Leaf Bud City return home sooner, everyone, remember to continue the meeting and finish discussing all the follow-up work. No need to wait for me to return before discussing it!”

One after another, everyone rolled their eyes at me.

“Don’t try to make excuses for being lazy and wanting to skip the meeting!” Earth snapped, “Also, when have we ever waited for you before starting a meeting? By the time you arrive, we’d already be finished with the meeting! Hurry and scram now!”

Roland and I arrived at the doll shop. There wasn’t a single person inside the shop. Even the beastmen had vanished without a trace. Then again, this was to be expected. If there were still people in here after the whole city had been emptied, it might attract attention from the royal knights or the holy knights.

As we entered the backroom together, we were greeted by the sight of Pink perched on her chair, seated in the same manner of having her small knickers exposed to the open air. She went straight to the point and asked, “My shaved ice?”

Annoyed, I chucked the whole bag of strawberry shaved ice at her. She immediately took one out and began to scarf it down.

“Where’s your candidate?” I was put off by the fact that I saw no one else besides Pink and said, “Is there really a need to be so mysterious? You should know that I only want to be the Sun Knight, and that I have absolutely no interest in fighting over the demon king position with your candidate, right?”

“I know that!” Pink ate several mouthfuls of shaved ice before shrugging and saying, “But the Cathedral of the Shadow God definitely won’t let my candidate become the Demon King.”

What… Guh! A stab of pain shot through my shoulder. Out of reflex, I dropped down and rolled away to reduce the damage to a minimum.

Somebody stabbed me from behind? But Roland is standing behind me. He couldn’t have been defeated already? I snapped my head up, only to see Roland with his sword raised. From the sword, blood dripped nonstop. The blood even carried holy element. It’s my blood!

Lost as to what was going on, my only thought was to protect myself first by casting the Shield of Earth, but…

Pink giggled as she said, “You cannot gather elements here.”

This phrase sure sounds familiar, and I’m afraid the reason why is the same. In here, only demon king candidates can gather dark element!

I immediately reached up to take off the Eternal Tranquility, but I could not remove the necklace from my neck because it was secured there by black threads. Furthermore, those black threads were actually emerging from underneath my shirt, but the only thing there was…

“Dragon’s Saint Brigandine had been slightly modified by me!” Pink mentioned nonchalantly, “It does recognize you as its master, but while in this room, it’ll only listen to me!”

On the front of my chest, there now grew many thread-like substances from the surface of the dragon-shaped insignia. They stretched all the way to my neck and secured Eternal Tranquility tightly there. Even though these thread-like substances felt just like the bodysuit fabric, I was unable to tear them off no matter what I did.

I could only give up on this pointless endeavor and cautiously turn my attention to Roland and Pink. I asked, “Roland, just what are you doing? Were you the one who stabbed me?”

“Sun, you’re really stupid when it comes to certain matters!” Pink smiled as she said, “Do you really not understand, or are you purposely refusing to understand?”

Roland being accidentally turned into a death knight…

The incredibly complicated process detailed in A Complete Guide to Necromancy Spells for making death knights…

The day I lost my memories when I ordered Adair to dispatch someone to trail Roland…

The ‘concern’ Pink had to take care of in Leaf Bud City…

Bitterly, I opened my mouth and asked, “Roland is the last demon king candidate? What exactly happened on that day I lost my memories?”

Pink shrugged and said, “Scarlet somehow managed to break through the seal that the Pope and Neo made together with the Divine Sun Sword. She not only found you but also told you the truth. In the end, you were so angry that you tried to ambush me using the Divine Sun Sword. However, I had always had a magic circle that prevents elemental gathering cast on my house, so you got thrashed by me instead.

“I originally wanted to kill you then, but to save you, Scarlet forcefully broke my magic circle from the outside and sent you away with teleportation. However, in doing so she took heavy damage. Not only did her new body get destroyed, even her soul was affected.

“Thankfully, I managed to use psychic magic to seal your memories in the moment before you were teleported away. But that dealt me a lot of damage too! If you had not fainted and dropped the Divine Sun Sword from your hands, I probably wouldn’t have been able to do it.”

I stared at her but did not know what to say. Pink still looked like the same old Pink, but I was struck with the sudden realization that, perhaps I had never truly understood her these past ten years!

Pink sighed, and then said, “Such a shame! Sun, I actually truly like you a lot, really I do! Compared to the dense Roland, your personality is much more interesting. It’s only too bad that my child is Roland and not you. For his sake, I can only ask you to die.”

Just then, Roland suddenly rushed forward, followed closely by a slash of his sword. I could not even see his movements, never mind trying to dodge them. I felt a chilling breeze on my neck and quickly took a few steps back. When I touched my neck, I felt a patch of moist wetness.

I immediately pressed onto my neck tightly, but the blood continued to flow with no hope of stopping. This wound added to the previous one on my shoulder was causing major blood loss. I began to feel dizzy; then my legs gave out and my entire body collapsed to the ground.

“Why? I agreed to give up the position… Could it be that that method doesn’t even exist?”

Pink shrugged, saying, “Sure it does! However, that method needs to take place at the altar in the Cathedral of the Shadow God, and those people at the Cathedral of the Shadow God definitely won’t let my Roland become the Demon King. You see, there’s always a limit to how much chaos a living person can cause, but nobody can tell just what kinds of things an undead creature would do.”

So you were lying to me? You planned to kill me from the start? I could not comprehend this and asked, “Why wait until now to strike? You have had many chances to make your move.”

“There actually weren’t many chances. I didn’t find out that you were actually also one of the demon king candidates until much later. Though I still had opportunities to kill you, it felt like it’d be a bit of a shame. I wasn’t even sure if Roland could win against the other candidate! Also, if the Cathedral of the Shadow God found out that Roland was a death knight during their battle, it was very likely that they’d lend a hand to the other candidate.”

Pink rationalized in a tone that was so detached it was cruel. “It was much too risky to battle the other candidate; however, it’s much easier to kill you. You’d even let Roland stand behind you with his sword raised, giving him your complete trust.”

Roland… I looked toward him. His face held no expression. He just stared at me with his head lowered.

Seeing me lying on the ground, bleeding nonstop, yet you can remain expressionless? Could it be that I’ve never truly understood you either? Roland!

“Even though the Cathedral won’t accept undead creatures as the Demon King, I still had to let Roland turn into a death knight.” Pink grumbled, “Never again do I want to see my child get killed by an expedition after exhausting the dark element that they absorbed! As long as he becomes a death knight, the Demon King’s powers will surely allow him to evolve into the highest level of the undead— a death monarch! Then, even if he uses up all of his dark element and is no longer the Demon King, there’d be no need to worry about him being killed by others.”

Roland’s death was single-handedly orchestrated by Pink? Despite the dizziness that was setting in, I still wanted to get to the bottom of all this. I could not believe that everything about Roland was faked this whole time. Impossible! I stared at him, and asked, “Was-Wasn’t it the king who tortured you to death?”

Instead of Roland answering me, Pink was the one who opened her mouth and replied, “Do you really think that fat pig of a king has the patience and methods to slowly torture someone to death for three months? It was only under my hypnosis that he gained the patience and learned the torture methods.”

The true culprit for Roland’s torturous death was Pink? There was no way Roland could have known, or else he wouldn’t have held a grudge against the king as a death knight. However, Roland has not said anything after hearing Pink’s words, so could it be that he already knew? He knew, yet he is not afraid of her?

I don’t understand, just what is going on? Roland, do you really want to kill me, for the sake of becoming the Demon King?

Pink said, “At first, to prevent Roland from killing him and then passing on, I thought I had to put in a lot of effort into protecting that pig. But in the end, Roland’s obsession was to become the Sun Knight. That saved me a lot of trouble. However, you saved me even more trouble, by going as far as getting Roland to become the Hell Knight. That disguise is actually pretty good, so I’ll forgive you for stealing the Sun Knight position from Roland back then!”

Roland… I looked toward him. He still had no expression at all. Also, for some unknown reason, even though his appearance was still human, his eyes had turned into twin orbs of flame. I could not even tell if he was looking at me or not.

Roland, look at me! I’m Grisia. Do you really want to kill me?

“You don’t need to stare at him,” Pink squatted down and murmured. “You don’t really care for him anyways. He is a death knight, you know. Do you really think that death didn’t affect him at all? He is pained by his identity as an undead creature, but you had no idea, so he could only come to me to speak of his fears.

“He told me, ‘Everyone around him was so lively, he was like a walking tombstone. He could not understand at all why others felt excitement, sadness, or even happiness.’ I can actually understand; he is already dead after all. Is there anything more serious and emotional than death? So of course he can’t get stirred up, though he did try really hard to act out different emotions.”

“…”

Pink walked back and perched on her chair again. Then, she mumbled as she ate more strawberry shaved ice, “It’s just too bad that I’ll never get to eat the strawberry shaved ice that your Ice Knight makes again.”

Cold, it’s freezing cold… “Kill me.”

“No way!” Pink refused immediately, “The fewer wounds on the corpse, the more durable the undead creature made from it will be. You shouldn’t have forgotten that your body after your death belongs to me, right? To avoid making another wound, you should just bleed and bleed until you die.”

“I am… the Sun Knight.” I said, trembling, “I will not d-die so easily.”

“Oh?” Pink smiled around a bite of shaved ice, saying, “Even the Sun Knight will die when all his blood has flowed away, right? I’m not in a rush. You can take your time dying!”

No! Don’t let me await death! Please, I beg of you… Roland… Kill me!

Kill me, I’m begging you…

“Wow, the Sun Knight is really something. I’ve already finished the shaved ice, and you’re still not dead… Roland, what are you doing?”

Ugh!

    Holy… just, wow. I had considered this chapter as a possibility but it never really occured to me it would happen over other possibilities. You know what I mean? Roland was a little obvious, and the whole turn alongside that reveal wasn’t out of nowhere, I had figured there was a possibility that Pink was involved in that memory loss thing, and there was no way one of them was going to just give up on their candidate… Just not that it would be that abrupt a turn.

    Also, I’m feeling more and more sorry for Scarlet tbh. She really seems to have gone the extra mile for Sun.

    • Aficionado

      I feel sorry for Scarlet too! The poor thing got the worst end of the stick. I knew that Pink was involved with all of this, but I still wonder why she didn’t kill him before. She has had too many opportunities till now. I am not very satisfied with the explanation she gave.

    • SniffingYou

      @Aficionado
      Maybe she really is attached to Sun, but of course her child is her priority.

    • @Aficionado
      I do feel badly for Scarlet too now.. I wonder if, you know, she isn’t trying desperately to power Sun up to save him from Pink, if she would actually be a fairly calm and motherly mother for him.. I wonder if, just before she was sealed, she was trying to warn him about Pink. (which would mean she wasn’t trying to confuse him or save herself, she really was thinking about him and his survival until the very end. I can’t believe Sun was already in this situation before and she busted through the seal to save him and put him out of harms way even at the cost of damaging her soul.)
      I think I’m satisfied with Pink’s explanation.. Upset, but satisfied with the idea that she wanted Sun to take out the other candidate first to keep Roland secret and intact. Well… if Sun dies, but is found within a few hours, the Pope actually might be able to revive him! If he did, I bet the God of Light would take his youth though… >.>

    • @Andi
      I am satisfied by Pink’s explanation. I also remember that when she “taught” Grisia the psychic attack, it was very suspicious. Perhaps she was trying to kill him but failed?

    • ChizuKuran

      @Aficionado
      overall i feel the worst for Scarlet too!! The poor thing…..even though she tried to hurt the people sun cared for….i still pity the women…she was just a mother trying to protect her child…..through crucial methods….but still……

    • Blazeclaw

      @Aficionado Remember, when Sun asked her that. She said that she didn’t even know that he was the Demon King Candidate till of late! What I am curious of is why Stephen said there was a way to give up the power!

  2. What, what, what, what, what the heck. Cliffhanger!!!! Grahaadnaown Waiting on the epilogue now…

  3. Jasae Bushae

    Well…A number of people called this but I seriously did not expect this turn of events. Or this complex revelation.

  4. I knew it! I had this feeling that Roland was the last candidate but… I never thought he would hurt Sun like that :( I thought he was an honest, cute, dense and loyal man. Why, Roland, whyyyyyy? D’:

    • @Angela Arias

      Actually, it seems that he might be under Pink’s control…. and that cliffhanger, he might be acting out! Don’t give up on him!! )’:

    • @Nali
      I don’t want to give up, but… but… buuuuuut!!! D’:

      Damn! I shouldn’t have read this yet. I should have waited for volume 7, and now I have to wait a whole month (maybe even more) to know what’s going on. I know there’s still the epilogue, but I don’t think it’s going to help me much :( Oh, Rolaaaaaand!!! Please don’t be evil! Or at least be a cool evil guy!

    • Diacus

      @Nali
      I think it’s very likely that he was under Pink’s control too. But what I’m wondering about, is… Roland died, correct? He had to to become an undead. But if that’s so… What happened to his Demon King Candidate element-thingie? When Charlotte died, hers went to Grisia. But Roland died, so where did his go? He shouldn’t have been able to keep it, right?
      Also, both Charlotte and Grisia were amazing with magic. But Roland wasn’t especially known for his magic, but rather his swordsmanship. He’s really something of an anomaly at this point…

    • @Diacus
      A Sun Knight who’s terrible at swordsmanship, a Dark Elf who’s not evil, a motherly Ice Knight and I could go on and on- I think a sword-wielding Demon King whose magic is near nonexistent pretty much fits in well in this world XD

      On the side note… AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH THAT CLIFFHANGER QAQ
      I knew it would be Roland cause I was spoiled way before… but I didn’t know Pink orchestrated his death- TAT

      I’ve also been spoiled a bit on what happens next (though I didn’t really understand how that goes-), either way, this will be one long painful wait //lies down

  5. O.O
    Poor Scarlet in the end she was just trying to help Sun. Pink you b**** how could youndo that to Grisia and Roland how could he do that to his own friend.

  6. …homework or read LSK? yeah…LSK it is!
    Thank You!!!

    • Greyidrone

      @Jynx3d
      Seconded! LSK beats homework any day of the week!
      Suprising chapter by the way, with pink’s actions and wanting to turn the SK into a DK!

  7. Miau Miau Yeen

    Ahhhh!!! While reading this I’m feeling horrified all over again. Sun Sun~~!! TAT
    I think I’ll cry again when I read the next chapter.

  8. WAIT. WHAT?! ROLAND?! TT-TT WHY?! How could you do that to Sun? How? Everything was a lie? You truly didn’t feel anything?!

    Nooooo… I really REALLY want to read the next chapter.

  9. Wonderful!

  10. What to say….damn!
    Sun’s death is killing me! :p
    Is this the last chapter of the book? plz say no T_T
    What happens next!?What happens next!?
    I cant sleep anymore T_T !
    I need to know!!!!
    T_T
    Well, cya next time.
    Thanks for the translation!

  11. Really astonishing revelations! Now I feel sorry for the Fat Pig King, Scarlet, & (of course) Grisia. Pink is the ultimate stage mother, manipulating events to further her child’s career.

    • @d1r31
      I wondered what people would think of the previous king after this! (He got so many people’s hate!) His only fault… er faults, is that he’s not a very good king and doesn’t manage his weight well…

      Scarlet really got the short end of the stick, didn’t she?

    • @[PR]lucathia
      did he not kill the witch that attack at the tournament for the princess hand or was it because of pink too?

    • Jasae Bushae

      @Bor
      Lets also not forget that Roland originally became involved with the king because he had been murdering servant girls, driving him to confront the king and his nefarious behavior. Hes probably just a sadistic monster who kills after a few hours rather than over the course of months.

    • @Bor
      I think it was because of pink…

    • @[PR]lucathia
      Fat king is still an SOB. He may not have tortured Roland for three months on his own, but he still tortured Roland and others for his own amusement.

  12. DoeJohnson

    Totally wasn’t expecting that! But then again, I never know what to expect with Yu Wo. Roland was probably only #5 on my list of possible candidates since I honestly didn’t think that a dead person could be it. Waaahh! Why does there always have to be a cliffhanger!?

  13. Waaaaaaaaa!!!! TT_TT even thought i knew already that Grisia will end this way i didn’t expect this situation to end up so cruel! Pink you are … And … And … And I thought that you were a nice character….
    But I also think that she didn’t tell all the trough now too. I believe that Roland dose have feelings but is under her fisic magic. The last lines of the chapter hint us that not everything went as she thought they would
    Roland!!!! Don’t let your friend die!!!!!

    • @EliSan
      Lolz Pink? Having a nice character? She was a manipulative creature of greed from the very start :p
      She just did stuff in a cute manner, so that no one would really care or notice ^_^

  14. …..Because Grisia getting kidnapped by whatsherface wasn’t a big enough cliffhanger. NOOOO NOW THIS SHIT HAS TO HAPPEN. DAMMIT YU WO STOP MESSING WITH MY FEELS D’:

  15. immasweetslovinggirl

    OOMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG NO!…NO STAHP IT!….YU WU!…YU WUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU~ *Rampages waiting for next chapter*

  16. Roland… I’m pretty disappointed with you.

    For a person willing to lay down his life for justice, this is a far cry from any sort of fairness. If there is a good reason behind your attempt to kill Grisia, one of the few friends you ever had, then I wouldn’t mind too much. After all, there’s no guarantee Grisia would be the better candidate once he turned into Dark Sun.

    However, what is NOT O.K. is how you tried to kill Grisia.
    The Roland we knew would challenge someone to a duel, as much as a fair clean fight as he could make it, especially if the opponent was worthy of at least a smidgen of respect in his eyes. Roland would NEVER stab someone in the back when they weren’t expecting it. And Roland wouldn’t let Grisia stand for so long in pain if those could have been his last moments alive.

    • @15B

      I have a suspicion that he is under Pink’s control right now. It wouldn’t be too hard, her being a lich/necromancer and he being an undead she created. Not to mention that she actually got Dragon’s Saint Brigandine under her control, despite Grisia being it’s master (and it didn’t even try to speak to him!!). She must have absolute power in that room of hers. But that last sentence… it’s obviously not going as she planned. Roland might be trying to resist!!

    • @Nali
      Trying to resist, or he just hit Grisia again.. >.<;; On a side note, I wonder if Pink feels like she is going to give Grisia and Roland their best shot at being friends… forever.

  17. /screw it I have been refusing this truth for chapters/
    Ahahaha, I guess I gotta give up now |D Well, it’s not unexpected. Though I’m willing to bet Roland just went against Pink in the last two lines.

  18. Now I understand the meanning behind “Death” by cliffhanger………but I still disbelieve that roland is the other candidate…..really?he even let the fatpigofaking to torture him to death?without using his powers at all????even with pink watching?why?….

  19. raimeowmeow

    I already said i wont read until vl7 was out… but i just love Sun too much.. o(T_T)o
    I guess too much love will really kill you…
    The feels…. *hugs myself and roll on the floor*

  20. great.. just great! And tonight! I’m gonna has a nightmare where Roland killing Sun without any emotion while that Pink eats strawberry ice shaved

  21. this is second time you stabbing grisia, roland! Huhuhu… Can he survive this time?

  22. Omg I have a sudden flash of inspiration! Pope can resurrect people, right? And Sun only needs to be killed once by another candidate…

    • @Nimue
      The Pope COULD Resurrect Grisia, probably, but it looks like Pink wants to cash in on Grisia’s afterlife promise a bit earlier than we thought. *wince* She might even be able to get a few hits in on the other Holy Knights during the shock they’d get upon seeing Zombie Sun.

      But now that I think about it… Why didn’t Pink try to kill Grisia with something that wouldn’t shed blood? That holy element is still going to be corrosive against the two undead and I doubt she’d want to leave a huge puddle in the middle of her pink floor.

    • @15B
      Now that you say it… hm. Maybe poison would hinder the resurrection somehow, since Grisia mentioned necromancy-resurrection is similar to holy-resurrection? …But then again they could just strangle him. Stabbing him is probably just for dramatic affect, haha.

  23. What a cliffhanger. I kind of like scarlet a bit more than pink now. I didn’t expect this kind of development at all. I kind of knew that it might be Roland but the thing about Pink was really surprising. Thank you for this chapter!

  24. You’re really going to leave us here????
    Really???

    What’s going to happen to Sun and Roland??
    AHHHH!!! Can’t wait anymore (T-T)

  25. Oh shit! I didn’t see that coming… So this is all Pink’s fault…

  26. That’s weird !!! I just finish reading this chapter and I couldn’t feel any thing !!i just barred my self under the blanket !!any way my Emotion are slaw so maybe I’ll cry later !! Actually just while I was writing this comment I was start to feel Pain in my throat =_= I think it’s Depression !!! Ughhhhh horrible feeling =_=

  27. SUN! I so did not expect this. Scarlet, I’m sorry for cursing you’re name a million times over during the last chapters and laughing whenever you got hurt! Never judging anyone again! Except Pink. PINK WATCH ME LAUGH WHENEVER YOU GET HURT.

    • Blazeclaw

      @Angel
      I know how you feel. I feel so bad now. I laughed so coldly when Scarlet got what she dealt, but now, oh now, I feel so horrible! Man, I really liked Pink now, but hurting Sun is just a big NO. Man, I’m starting to feel like Charlotte…

  28. Hmm, I’m thinking Grisia is more than just a Demon King candidate. I don’t think his talents with magic come purely from his candidacy. Remember, according to the side stories, he was far better at gathering elements than the other boys in the selection (including Roland)

  29. Wow.. Pink… killed her candidate. Does this mean that Roland really did try to kill Sun when they first met back in book 1? I’m really shocked Roland could fool Judgement. So that bizarre dark “family heirloom” sword that Roland had even before he died.. came from his lich “mother”, Pink? Even if Roland has been faking his emotions until now, he has to feel rage, right? I mean, death lords are fueled by it… Get outraged, Roland! Your life and death have been controlled by Pink! Don’t be a… ehrm, zombie. >.>;; So.. please be under a spell, break it, and save your friend! *prays that the God of Light will somehow help… or the Shadow God.. or both of them!* Someone, Judgement, do something!! >o<;;;

  30. NanoLaughing

    CRAP CRAP CRAP CRAPPITY CRAP CRAP CRAP….. THIS IS A LOAD OF BULL CRAP DUMPED ON ME AT ONCE. I SHOULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING. THIS WAS COMING. WAS WAS I DOING? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    Thank you for the speedy update, Prince Revolution.

  31. NOOO!!! SUN!!!
    i hope you wont turn into a death knight…then again you might turn into a death necromancer…
    but the last lines left me hanging. what did Roland do? did he stab Sun as he requested, or attacked Pink because he isnt being controlled anymore(yes, i strongly believe he is being controlled as per the comments of everyone in here)? if he is not anymore, what happened that Pink would lose control over him? did Judgment and the gang showed up? or maybe Neo finally reached Leaf Bud City?
    argh so may questions…
    thanks PR for the translation

  32. WHAT!!! I know there’s no way Sun is dead, but Roland…what is wrong with you??!?!?!?! And, Pink??? I really liked your character, but now I just your character vaporized or at least get trapped in the Eternal Tranquility forever.

  33. wow…just wow. That’s unexpected. It’s sad that Roland is actually trying to kill Sun. I guess for the liches their candidate is really the most important thing. It must be excruciating for Sun to be betrayed (..) Thankyoufor the chapter!!!

  34. ChizuKuran

    ……well i certainly did not expect this revelation…..though looking back, i guess there was alot of red flags but i just choose to overlook them because i honestly thought Pink and Roland were really good people! It’s obvious that Roland is under Pinks control and it doesn’t look like its going to work out that way do to the No-Good cliffhanger….(pissed by the way). i’m really shock ed how cold and nonchalant pink turned towards sun! after everything they’ve been through!!! I sure do hope that one of the holy knights didn’t trust sun’s judgement on coming ALONE to a LICH territory!!!…..even i knew that was a bad idea….ugghhh, i really think i might go crazy if they don’t hurry up and update!!! I STILL HAVE FAITH IN YOU ROLAND, DON’T LET ME DOWN!!!

  35. That “Ugh!” at the last line must come from Pink! Because I won’t give up on Roland! He must be just acting it out or might be under her control. Also, Judgement is too much of a paranoid to let them go willingly to Pink.

    On another note, Scarlet is soo misunderstood. Poor her. She must have loved Grisia so much. D=

  36. …What…Roland…What…Scarlet…As always, Yu Wo’s cliffhangers are always the best (or the worst?). :D Thank you for your hard work! Ahh now but I’m suffering while waiting for the next chapter…=v=)/ I wonder what Roland decided to do…=;A;=

  37. Thanks PR! team for translating.
    The cliffhanger may be cruel.. but, I believe Sun will survive till the end! Go Sun!!
    ..and.. I miss Neo and Aldrizt.. Where are they? T_T

  38. Thank You PR =D
    Wow…
    I was right about Roland being the candidate, but for Pink to be the mastermind…
    Is just wow…
    Can’t wait for the next chapter/epilogue.

  39. While I DID see this coming…I still thought that Roland wouldn’t kill or harm (well, what count for ‘harming’ a guy who can smile even after being dealt with a sword by a master swordsman!) Grisia. I mean, they WERE friends.

    Then again, his lasting obsession IS to become the Sun Knight.

    But still…I believe in Roland!

    Besides, I bet even if Grisia dies, he’d probably become a Death Knight or something similarly abnormal and freakishly strong so he could safeguard his fellow Holy Knighta…and even then, he’d still call Rolland his brother!!!

    Well, IF he dies. I don’t honestly believe he will. He’s too unlucky to die properly.

  40. And thank you very much for this chapter!!!

  41. Pink is a botch =_=
    And… If he does die the pope can resurrect him! But I think he’ll take away Sun’s holy element though….

  42. Jasae BushaeXD

    Hmm…I have a bit of a wild theory. Roland is respectful of the duties of the Hell Knight and follows them to the letter. So…What if one of the duties of the Hell Knight is to serve as the Sun Knight if the original ever falls? It would mean his unfinished business would be fulfilled if Grisla ever dies

  43. SniffingYou

    Nice to meet you ‘Insomia’. It’s a pleasure to be with you for a MONTH!

    “Wow, the Sun Knight is really something. I’ve already finished the shaved ice, and you’re still not dead… Roland, what are you doing?”
    Ugh!

    > Yeah, Roland, What are you doing? ;D

  44. Blazeclaw

    Oh my goodness. This chapter was so serious! How can Roland betray Sun? I wonder how Sun is going to solve this? He won’t leave One of the Twelve Holy Knights behind, right? And he definitely considers Roland as the Hell Knight. Oh, Roland make yourself justified.
    I wonder if a Demon King was an undead creature, how would it die? So, would the Demon King live for eternity till it was killed by something else? And what could be strong enough to kill a Demon King, for it said that it could kill whole armies in a blink of an eye?
    Man, I have so many questions…
    I starting to feel like Charlotte with how obsessive I have became over Sun. You should see me at school, jumping up and down when a new chapter updates. I get so angry at the characters, laugh out loud (a little to loud), and grab my friend’s arm when something serious happens.

  45. mimi-dono

    the chapter is so short! but thanks anyways!

  46. On one hand, I feel like manipulating and ultimately killing your “child” after making their life a living hell… is horrible mothering. Especially now that it seems he exists without feeling joy. On the other hand though, I wonder if becoming an undead isn’t so bad to Pink? I mean, she has always been a corpse.. And she did say she likes Grisia and even is trying to make sure he has an intact corpse so that he can become a good undead. I wonder now if she was planning to resurrect Leaf as an undead for Sun if he didn’t make it in time.. She always seems to underestimate his reaction to death. (Though now I also realize EVERYTHING Pink ever did was for her own benefit. Even when she seemed generous it was because she had an ulterior motive. Geez, did Sun sell his afterlife to her for Roland? I feel like that contract should be nullified >.<))
    Additionally, I suddenly wish Roland would take a bite out of Sun. I know that sounds bizarre, but if Roland's undying obsession is to become the Sun Knight, if he were to bite off a piece of Sun's arm and eat it, would he technically "be the Sun Knight" or at least a smidge of him? I wonder if that could work, and then Pink's candidate would move on, (maybe he would truly smile finally as his mouth starts to corrode from Sun's super holy blood and think to himself that if he can feel this warmth and shift his obsession for his friend, maybe he really isn't such a monster) and Sun would become the demon king… and hopefully be strong enough to kick Pink's butt even if he has his necklace on. I know this probably won't happen, but while I sit here agonizing over a cliff hanger, I am going to dream of a resolution to keep me going. It is a horrible (excellent?) cliffhanger, but I am still grateful for it. XD Thanks PR!

  47. man with grisia grudge and pity. if pink raise him as an undead who know what he might become. come on the guy can use all of the element already if he become an undead dont it make him and death knight/lich+ mage.

  48. So the moral of this volume: never trust an undead creature, regardless of who they are/were. All three lichs turned out to be terrible. Stephen and Charlotte blew up a street of innocents, Scarlet killed Judgment and took Neo’s arm, and Pink killed Leaf and Roland. Ugh, I don’t know which one to hate now!! I hate all of them!!! If Sun dies, I will cry…

  49. I tried to listen to the warning, and not to touch this chapter…. What have I done?! orz

    I really didn’t see this coming at all. .___. I’m sure Sun will survive… somehow.

    Thanks for the chapter. :3

  50. Is it just me, or does anyone else think this who mess is sun’ teacher fault. He basically stuck his nose where it didn’t belong and stole sun from scarlet. Then he had the audacity to act righteous. If sun had just been left with scarlet, Roland would have become sun knight and non of this would have happened. Honestly, I really dislike fools of his brand.

  51. The Book Girl

    Reflecting on it now, it seems I, too, was fooled by Roland’s disguise. I can imagine only a small number of things happening after this cliffhanger (Well, we were warned). Sun dies (Which is highly unlikely, as he is the protagonist and this is a story in first person POV. It would have to switch perspectives next volume, which I highly doubt would happen), Roland saves Sun, a third (fourth, technically) party steps in, Sun becomes a death knight… I guess the real cliffhanger is the new doubt. Who is Roland loyal to? Himself, Pink (same goal), or Sun?
    Then again, if Roland’s ‘unfinished business’ was to beat Sun, wouldn’t becoming the Demon King ‘count’? Hmm.
    Thank you so much for the warning about the cliffhanger. I can only pity those poor souls who read the volume and had to wait for this cliffhanger to be resolved.
    This is going to sound very sadistic, but I kind of admire Pink. She’s a lich guide, but she still manages to serve her own purposes. Not to mention, she completely pulled one over on Sun. Also, she didn’t know Sun was a candidate, but she was still prepared for the worst-case scenario. She gave Sun Dragon’s Saint Brigandine, which she can control, as an act that may have led him to rely on her, even though it was actually ‘insurance’ that he wouldn’t cross her. At least, theoretically speaking, you would think it would be hard to double-cross someone while your clothes were attacking you. Kudos for that, even though, as a loyal Grisia fan, I am forced to spit at her very name (even though she’s still technically doing her job).

    • [PR]raylight

      @The Book Girl
      Actually you’re not the only one. I kind of do admire Pink myself. (Though that was some time after reading this chapter and after finally managing to calm myself enough to like her again)

  52. Is there any reason why Sun couldn’t use psychic magic to call for help?

    • Ariana

      @Leon
      I would assume that Pink blocked him since she knows he can use psychic magic and she can use it herself.

  53. Well……I liked Pink till I read this chapter…now I hate her to the core…..and I dont feel at all remorsefull for hating Scarlet neither….She was the one who killed Judgement after all…..I’ve re-read all the Lsk chapters again while waitingfor the updates…..now I’m really really anxious. this had to be a torture to wait for a whole year after this cliffhanger….so thanks for the update and If you update vol7 earlier you’ll have my eternal gratitude

  54. I wonder where and when does Mr unicorn comse in. He just disappear and forgotten.

  55. SCARLET!!!!!
    I feel so sorry for you, and I’m so sorry I hated you! :(

    • the49thalias

      @Ms. Ella
      My exact sentiments right there. Scarlet was really misunderstood… she just wanted what was best for Grisia. (And that was getting the hell away from Pink.)

  56. I still can’t believe what Pink did…

    I liked her…before.

    Was she really the same Pink as the one who said she would protect Sun in earlier volumes? Is she the same Pink that cries and begs for lollipops? PINK! WHY?????

  57. Pink is a real bitch! Stephen the lich was very nice to Charlotte and worried about her so much. Scarlet also seems to have cared about Grisia. But Pink just had her child tortured to death! She doesn’t care about him and even said she preferred Grisia. Ugh, she is the worst. I feel bad for Roland.

    Grisia… I am worried about him … but not too worried since I know there are still two volumes. He can’t really die now, right? Right???? *bites fingernails*
