The Legend of Sun Knight V6Extra: “We Can Never Lose the Sun Knight”

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

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


Sixth Shared Rule of the Twelve Holy Knights: “We Can Never Lose the Sun Knight” – translated by Evangeline

“The task on hand now is to report to the king.” Lesus Judgment turned to Aivis and said, “Stone, when Sun returns, go with him to the palace.”

“Understood,” Aivis immediately nodded.

Even though Vival’s chin was raised in a prideful manner, he wore a worried expression on his face and said, “We also have to quickly inform the personnel from the Church of the God of Light who have retreated. I am truly worried for Sun’s vice-captain. Not only has Adair been overworked, now he has to worry excessively for his captain. He looks like he’s going to drop dead at any moment! If we inform them too late, then Sun probably won’t even have a vice-captain anymore.”

“No, no, no,” Ceo wailed. “Adair can’t drop dead! If he dies, then I can’t live either!”

“More like you will flee the Holy Temple in the dead of night…”

Elmairy suddenly exclaimed, “Everyone, look out the window!”

Everyone instantly fell silent and turned to look out the window one after another. Storm clouds suddenly gathered outside and the whole sky darkened. The dark clouds gradually formed a huge whirlpool, as if it would suck the entire sky into its midst.

Lesus stood up, frowning. A spot of anxiety appeared in his heart but he ignored it, because no one would feel happy if they saw the sky changing to that kind of weather. “Anxiety” was probably still considered a calm way to react to the situation.

Everyone started to talk. “Is the Demon King being born?”

Feeling uneasy, Elmairy asked, “It should be the other candidate, shouldn’t it? Sun couldn’t have become the Demon King right?”

“He wouldn’t dare! Unless he wants to be skewered by Judgment with the Divine Sun Sword!” Earth laughed loudly. “Even if Sun became the Demon King, he would still be terrified of Captain Judgment!”

Everyone either laughed or chuckled.

Looking at the laughing group, Lesus Judgment knew they were joking, but he still gave a serious thought to whether or not his actions were too out of line. The Judgment Knight should obey the commands of the Sun Knight, not scare the Sun Knight to death.

But if Sun were not scared of him, then there really would be no way of knowing what measures Sun would take to solve things. There had to be someone there to occasionally “remind” him not to go way over the top. As the Sun Knight’s subordinate and yet also a source of fear, being the Judgment Knight was certainly proving to be quite challenging. Lesus sighed helplessly.

“Captain Judgment, what do you think?” Elmairy asked worriedly.

Lesus surveyed his comrades and only then did he discover that even though everyone was still making teasing remarks with their mouths, the expressions on their faces were all those of worry; even Earth’s grin looked a little forced.

I have to calm everyone’s nerves first. He said lightly, “It seems about time, so Knight-Captain Sun is probably handing the position of the Demon King over to the other candidate now. We have to hurry up and get on with our meeting. We must let the citizens of Leaf Bud City return and settle back down peacefully at the earliest possible time.”

Seeing Knight-Captain Judgment’s calm attitude, everyone nodded and relaxed significantly.

At that moment, the whirlpool outside gradually weakened and then disappeared. Everyone’s mind calmed down even more. They thought, This case is finally over.

Just when the meeting was about to continue, an unexpected guest suddenly appeared above the conference table. His strong dark element made everyone draw their weapons before they saw who it was, and they were almost about to attack…

“Wait! It’s Knight-Captain Hell,” Lesus called out. He recognized the person who had arrived. Even though he noticed Roland looked a little different, it would not do to attack a comrade, so he quickly yelled out to stop everyone.

Ashen white body, vein tattoos of black fire, claw-tipped dragon wings… but now there were three pairs of wings and they seemed even larger than before!

The three pairs of wings were presently tucked behind Roland’s back, but the dragon claws at the top of the wings almost struck the ceiling. If they opened, the meeting room probably wouldn’t even be able to contain those three pairs of wings.

Lesus frowned, but in the next second he saw that Roland was carrying someone in his arms, someone with snow white hair… Unless he was unconscious, that person would never allow his hair to stay white. He quickly asked, “What happened to Knight-Captain Sun?”

At that moment, Roland actually loosened his hold and let the person in his arms drop. The person fell onto the table, his white hair spilling across the surface.

Judgment was stupefied. Elmairy was the first to exclaim, “Hell, why did you drop him? Sun will get hurt!”

Roland lowered his head slightly, but no one knew what his pair of flaming eyes were looking at. He answered quietly, “That would be impossible.”

Lesus felt something was wrong. He was dropped like that, but Grisia didn’t have the slightest reaction? Could he really be unconscious? Setting aside his questions for Roland, he directly reached out to brush away Grisia’s hair, and called out at the same time, “Sun, wake up…”

The hair was brushed away to reveal that the Sun Knight’s pair of blue eyes were actually open. They were wide open and looking straight at Lesus.

Lesus could only stare back, dumbfounded.

Elmairy’s scream echoed around the room, and everyone started to panic… Suddenly, a huge force pressed everyone down into their chairs, immobilizing them.

Lesus was also forced down into his chair, unable to move, but this force cleared his mind. He inspected Grisia closely, and the longer he looked, the lower his heart sank.

The Sun Knight uniform was almost completely dyed red, making it obvious there had been a massive loss of blood. But most importantly, the pupils in those blue eyes were dilated. If this were someone else, Lesus could tell at first glance that this person was dead. But this was not someone else. It was Grisia Sun, so he could not bring himself to come to this conclusion.

Lesus looked up. The aura that Roland was emitting now was unfathomably stronger than before. Before, Lesus could say that if he were to lose to Roland, he wouldn’t lose too badly, but now Lesus was sure that he was not a challenge for Roland at all!

“You are the Demon King?” But after Lesus asked, he cared little for the answer and immediately followed up with another question, “You killed Sun?”

“Yes.” The Demon King laughed, and even described the course of events without pausing. “I slashed him twice with my sword. He fell on the ground, his blood flowing ceaselessly, and he even begged me to kill him, but I didn’t do it immediately; I only watched him… He looked really scared. He was so scared of dying that he even cried! It was unsightly! Hahaha!”

Chikus roared, “Shut up! You traitor! He, he trusted you so much, yet you actually killed him!”

No one else shouted in anger, but all of their eyes seemed to be blazing, and their glares were directed at the Demon King floating in mid-air.

Lesus Judgment stood up slowly. Even though his entire body was trembling under the strain of resisting, he still managed to stand up in the end, and announced to the Demon King in mid-air, “The Twelve Holy Knights will never let you off!”

Following that, the Twelve Holy Knights stood up one by one. They did not speak, but the determination in their eyes spoke for them.

The Demon King smiled. He laughed as he said, “Then come! I will be waiting for all of you at the Cathedral of the Shadow God.”

After he said that, the Demon King left.

The Twelve Holy Knights all fell back into their seats. With the enemy, the Demon King gone, their vigor for revenge also vanished. All they had in front of them now was a corpse, but everyone’s expressions were bleaker than when they faced down the Demon King.

The dead body lay still on the table, the opened blue eyes clouded over. Anyone could tell that he was dead. There was no denying it even if they wanted to lie to themselves.

In the silence, Lesus abruptly called out, “Metal.”

Metal started in surprise and nearly jumped up to answer, “Yes.”

“Bring the Pope here right away.”

The Pope followed the Metal Knight into the meeting room and asked in puzzlement, “What is up with all the mysterious…“

Then, he froze with his eyes and mouth wide open.

The corpse that the Demon King had thrown carelessly onto the table had already been rearranged neatly with a black robe underneath him. But the clouded blue eyes were still opened wide; no one had reached out to close his eyes.

The Pope walked to the table. Even though the truth was evident, he still couldn’t resist reaching out to check for himself.

Lesus asked lightly, “Pope, I heard from Sun that you know Resurrection?”

The Pope hesitated, and then understood everyone’s intention. He said, “But my success rate of a complete revival is too low, and his injuries are so severe. This will make Resurrection much harder… Even if I am willing to pay a price to resurrect him, I can’t do it! Grisia could do it because he is the Sun Knight, the one closest to the God of Light.”

“You say that his injuries are severe?” Lesus asked a different question.

The Pope’s face fell and he nodded, saying, “Mm, there are sword cuts to his shoulder, neck and chest. The injury on the shoulder directly snapped his collarbone. The injury to his neck is shallow in comparison, but resulted in massive blood loss. The wound on his chest pulped his heart directly. That would be the ultimate cause of his death, but even without this chest wound, Sun wouldn’t have survived because he had lost almost all the blood in his body.”

“Resurrect him,” Lesus said without hesitation.

“But…”

He interrupted the Pope and asked, “With these injuries, how long would it take for him to lose all of his blood?”

The Pope hesitated and then said, “About seven or eight minutes.”

“So Sun got slashed, they let him bled for eight minutes, and then killed him in the end with a single strike!” Lesus was practically raging by the end. “And you plan to let him die this way and not resurrect him?”

“I didn’t mean it like that!” The Pope quickly backpedaled. He looked around at all who were present and asked once more, “But are you sure you want to do this? I have to warn you in advance, the side effects of Resurrection may be so ghastly that Sun would rather die to escape it.”

Elmairy growled, “Sun wouldn’t choose death. He would not abandon us!”

“It doesn’t matter if he loses or gains anything. That’s all unimportant!” Chikus shouted, “He is already a demon king candidate. What else is there to be afraid of?!”

“I don’t know about the others, but my teacher taught me this,” Ceo Storm said gravely. “He taught me that it’s possible to cover up the loss of one of the Twelve Holy Knights. Even if we lose the Judgment Knight, we will only end up at most with a corrupt society. But if we lose the Sun Knight, who is responsible for leading us all, then we will have no road to tread! So…”

Everyone cried as one, “We can never lose the Sun knight!”

Hearing that, the Pope sighed and said, “I understand, then let’s prepare the resurrection!”

The magic circle of the Resurrection spell emitted a pure white glow. The white haired body lying in the center closed his eyes. Under the worried gaze of those present…

The white haired man slowly opened his eyes.

    HOLY OHMYGOD! what side effects will he suffer!? DAMN U ROLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND!!!! at least he didnt let him with Pink to become a zombie :(

    • @~RenTheWitch~
      I kinda suspect this is Roland’s solution to the Roland Problem.

      There are bits across the series that seem to support this, the most obvious being that there’s no way he would think the others would do anything but immediately attempt to cast resurrection. He’s also already an undead with immense powers of darkness so he shouldn’t go berserk from the power rush like Sun did… Not going to sort out and list others because it would ruin the magic if I’m right, I’d rather the next chapter feel new when I read it, but it’s a possibility.

      Or maybe it is supposed to be taken at face value and he is the Evil Demon King. Multiple possibilities here.

    • @beta
      The biggest thing to consider is how much does being undead alter Roland. According to the previous chapter, Roland can no longer feel feelings, but he also seems to still think logically and act in difference to Pink on some occasions. In this case I wonder if Pink or Roland is a greater evil. Under whose direction was sun brought back and what greater plans do they have?

      Keep in mind, Pink already said that an undead Demon king was unacceptable to the church, so maybe there is something more darker and convoluted in play for sun and the knights.

    • @crux
      Looks like Roland brought back Grisia because he knew that he would get resurrected. Even though he killed Grisia as Pink ordered, it looks like he does have *some* free will. I say this because Pink meant to revive Grisia as an undead (and therefore under her control) which means that Roland most likely brought his corpse back against Pink’s wishes. Possibly Roland was able to give orders to Pink after Grisia died and he became the Demon King.

  2. You were right. This book did leave off at an absolutely horrible cliffhanger. Please, please, bring the next book out soon…. /cries

    I’ll give you all imaginary candy :'(

  3. Pleeeaaase don’t let Sun be insane or grow horns or… well, he probably wouldn’t mind a tail if he can hide it and it has utility.. ANYWAY, please let him be healthy and whole! Though he is still probably going to be in a state of severe blood loss… I also REALLY wonder now if the God of Light will take the Pope’s youth.. or maybe his eye sight since he also has sensing ability. Is there anything ohmygod could take that would make the pope a better pope? >.<;; (Sun strongly believed that, as long as the God of Light wants him, he would never take anything that would leave him unable to be the Sun Knight.. lets hope that stays true for both the Pope and Sun!)
    I really wonder if Roland wants to be killed. He laughed at Sun, but I thought joy was pretty much dead to him..? I wonder if that too was an act.. I mean, even back in the first volume he told Sun to kill him when everything is over (I think he meant the stuff with the king, but still, he didn't really want to live as an undead creature). I mean, he HAD to have known that if he dropped Sun off in the temple that the 10 holy knights would do every thing in their power to revive Sun! ..In other words, Roland, you broke my heart. I am going to keep coming up with explanations until you are beyond hope, so please redeem yourself! D; Thanks again, PR!

    • Minibu

      @Andi
      So true! Roland can’t be that evil!!! TT^TT don’t kill Roland!!! Roland…don’t go and ask to be killed!!
      Also, I have some theories towards resurrection:
      1. I think the God of light took things in a not so random way from Sun, I mean, what makes a sun knight? In the first book he said a Sun knight (as everyone knows) has beautiful blue eyes, sun-like blond hair, snow white skin and is the most powerful in the church of light (by being the leader and such); and then in later books, with each resurrection the God of Light took his vision (a.k.a his eyes) and next made his hair blond… so my first theory is that perhaps the God of Light is not so pleased with Sun (since he let his brothers die), so perhaps he is punishing him by making him little by little technically uncapable of being the Sun Kinght. And now perhaps instead of the pope or the holy knight It is going to take something from Sun again (since the twelve holy knights “can’t” die and well, he is also a holy knight). So it is either, his skin color = making him black (which could actually be pretty radical and kind of funny), or his holy magic (quite tragic in my opinion since he is kind of proud of this one trait of his).
      2. Perhaps it is not punishment, though the God of Light is indeed taking important things from him, It is not doing it out of anger, but perhaps because those things are actually very important and believes Sun won’t care as long as his twelve holy knights are safe. Making him worthy of being the Sun Knight, but without technically being it.

    • @Minibu
      Remember that Leaf GAINED super human eyesight when Grisia resurrected him, so Sun might not lose anything. The Pope comments in this chapter that, for both Leaf and Lesus, Sun was terrified that the resurrection wouldn’t go well so he opted to pay a price instead of leaving it to chance. The Pope seems to think Sun can do that specifically because he is the Sun Knight and closest to the God of Light (hence he can bargain instead of just hoping for the best). The Pope doesn’t seem sure the God of Light would allow him to do the same, but I guess we will see if it works? At least the resurrection seems to have revived Sun, but we will see if Sun gains or loses something… who knows, in a minute, maybe the God of Light will give him back his hair color! ..or he could grow a pair of breasts, in which case I think Sun would seriously break down and cry.. ._.;;

    • Charbz

      @Minibu
      I think you are so right, but to continue the theory, with the god of light and the shadow god and all them being connected, that the god of light actually wants Grisia to become the demon king to bring balance to the world, so he is actually slowly turning him into it with each resurrection!

    • Minibu

      @Charbz

      W-Wha…?! I actually hadn’t thought about it! It sounds quite possible, a good theory indeed (and it actually makes sense). But then this line of thinking leads to only a few possible scenarios and the most probable is: Sun will gain an stronger affinity towards the dark element = bye bye holy element = hello demon king.

      Though for him to actually be the Demon King…it would be kind of hard, not impossible in Sun terms, but very very hard, since he would have to somehow take back the Demon king powers from Roland (the actual Demong King); and before that he will need to trick the other holy knights into accepting it (only possible way = lying); AND also by some way or another making sure all the population (holy knights, knights and normal people) suffer the least of casualties = none or almost none (in Sun terms).

      I really hope the God of Light wants to keep Sun, since I believe he loves being the Sun Knight, so it will be very tragic and sad for him to become the Demon King, because even if he gets powers, if he loses his brothers then he wouldn’t want/need those powers since he wouldn’t have anyone to protect.

      Sun….come back unaffected!!

    • @Minibu
      Not at all, I believe that If Sun turn into the Demon King, his brother will just trying their best to cover for him and hide the truth for all enternally..haha

    • @Minibu
      Black skin, white hair…. Ohmygod! He’d be a Dark Elf!
      What if the (possible) ‘defect’ turns out to be beneficial, like Sun regaining his sight?

    • @mir
      lol, I will die by choked of laughing soon~

    • @Andi
      I really really furious when Roland harmed Sun last time and when he said that Sun dried because he scares of death, but after I read his word I feel the same at you, Roland has never laugh before and there are just no reason why he had to go all the way back to give back Sun’ body. And… does anyone fell that his word also sounded too forged…like he tried his best to be evil or something…or does it because of the translator?… I too will back Roland of too, even though I kinda knew this day would come after I reread the story and saw Pink letter saying that Roland want to become the sun knight…aww…Roland~~..
      You don’t want Sun to change? I really want it though, horns? That looked cool, why not? Roland has wing and that’s so cool, isn’t it? I would die being crused by happiness if Sun grow horn (wing looked fine too).+100P if he loses his memories and gone berserk. haha. Other heart would be shatter but that sounded so interested. Sun would then acted indifferance with their feeling but in the end came for them by some weird feeling deep insight his frozen heart that keep on stimulate him to save those stranger… Isn’t it would romantic? A beautiful male demon with blue sky eyes, long silky white hair (with cool horn, wing, tail… or whataver) and super attractive and dangerous smile fighting in a flashy bloodiness, savagess, and ill-tember way while both enjoy the fight but at the same time making a painfully face with tears sometime dropped as he hurt his ex-buddy every now and then, it is so romantic, isn”t it?
      Owwn, I’m just realize I’m a super evil sadistist! After emagining such tragic ending while writing it down in speed of light, I finally read it through again and …OMG, I’m a real sadist!

  4. damn it Roland…after this you are about to be in a world of pain..coz grisia is not the one to be angered and u have angered him…

    • @sunny
      You… uhm… Anyone can messed with him and get crusted but not Roland, Sun is the type who will let Roland killed him anytime since he always feel guity for the fact that he got chosen to be the SN instead of Roland despite the fact that he is not good enough… Poor Sun~(Poor Roland too, you are just so unlucky)
      Ahh, seeing Sun feel so hurt that he dried by dying in his great childhood friend make me feel the worse, dawn it! Sun~Everything will be alright, just wake up and go beat him up till it is revived that it is just misunderstand , please!

  5. Gah! Another super-cliffie. *biting nails*

  6. I knew I should have waited for you to start book 7 before reading this!!!! Why Roland why!?
    I would die of laughter is Sun turned into a woman! but I won’t put anything past Yu Wo after all the random and crazy stuff she’s put us through before XD
    Oh wow, I have so many questions flying though my head right now. Like, why did he take Sun back to the Holy Temple? Roland and Pink must have known that the Pope would revive him…. I wonder what they have planned next? THEY SHOULD JUST LEAVE POOR GRISIA ALONE NOW GOD (of light) DAMMIT!!!
    (And thanks for another great translation PR!!!)

  7. What is going to happen to Sun now? Hasn’t he gone through enough already? These cliffhangers are not good for my health.

  8. *sobs* NOOOOOOO! SUUUUN! Roland why did you have to do that?! And Damn it, I really really hate Pink >____< And who paid the price? Is it the Pope or Sun? Oh please OhMyGod, do something :"( I'm crying so much now. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    • @Fana
      Owaaa… That’s right! I hate Pink so much now. I can’t understand why do I even go as far as to match-making them, I mean Pink and Grissia, why, why Pink? You betray my feeling for you. Sun is too good for you. Dawn it! ( I used to think this is a evil dark-two face perfect couple!) DAWNNN ITTTT!

  9. I just started reading LSK, but it is wonderful! Thank you so much to all the translators, proofreaders, scanners, etc at PR who made this possible! But please update soon! I’m dying from the suspense! :'(

  10. All I can say is……YEEEEEES! I know cliff hangers are terrible, and it is true that I am going to go crazy waiting for the next chapters, but, mm, how to say….So many books are so stagnant and predictable, and while the overall course of these books are fairly predictable, Yu Wo does an exceptional job creating situations that go beyond expectations. Reading them at the pace they are released is, in some ways, more enjoyable than chewing through the whole of the series in a day. You get to savor the tension. Looking back at what I wrote, I did a horrible job explaining. What I really mean is; Yu Wo creates situations where, for me at least, you almost feel like you are in the story. She connects you well enough to the characters that you truly care what happens…..something like that, maybe?
    Eh, on a side note to PR people; I am currently living in China and will be staying here until July. Does Yu Wo have any events coming up in Taiwan or anything? And can I only buy her books in Taiwan?
    Thanks for all your work.

    • If you want to buy the novels, there is a simplified version released in China. Yu Wo periodically has book signing events in Taiwan, but you would need to fly over to Taiwan to attend, of course. Online Taiwanese bookstores might ship to China. I haven’t checked though.

      I have to say, we all have to rejoice that we don’t have to wait between book releases like readers who were waiting for the physical books. XD; That must have been torture!

  11. I..I..I dont understand! why did Roland stabbed Grisia? wasnt he supposed to be dealt with minimal damage in his body so that Pink can make him an undead??? And why did Roland returned him to the temple??? now I dont know if he is being controlled or what..
    i think I need to have a checkup. all of these chapters are really bad for my heart.
    i hope that the Pope will be able to fully revive Sun without much affecting himself.
    Thanks PR for the translation.. wished i had listened to your advise of reading it till the first chapter of volume 7 is out…sigh..

  12. ummm since the pope is the one to resurrect sun, and with normal procedure, sun is the one to have the side effect of gaining extra or losing sth, but the question now is what it is… well thanks for translation

  13. Thank you…
    Thank you…
    SO MUCH… kiss.. kiss

    We finally know what happened to SUN,
    he seemed dead, but he’s not..
    So he probably going to wake up at V07..

  14. It’s not really that weird that Roland did as he did, considering how Grisa was when he was under the influence of the Dark Element.

  15. if you think of it … since leaf knight has good eyesight he gained it by taking it from sun, thus leaf gained extraordinary eyesight while sun lost his sight … in judgement’s case since judgement is all black, the most striking feature of sun (which i think is his golden hair).. i guess it got taken away , thus his hair died and a dead hair color is white… and judgement didnot gain or lose anything in return…

    i think that if the resurrection is almost perfect then the one casting it will lose something in return, in which what always happens to sun eevery time he casts a ressureection … while if the caster does not have the talent to perform a complete ressureection then probably the one that will loose something is the one being ressurected (which is sun)…

    so in theory i think that this time , sun will loose something in return because of a not perfect ressurection, this time his only prominent feature is i think is his holy light ??? um since i cant think of anything that is the most prominent feature of a sun knight … … …

    • bloodbound

      @bloodbound
      It’s possiable he might lose his holy light but he might lose his youth. Since the pope likes to lie about his age. Poor Sun!!

  16. Setsuyume

    Wooooooooooooooooooow!

    1- Honestly, I think Roland is putting up an act: after turning against Pink’s control, he got Grisia back to be ressurected. He obviously has issues with being undead, and wants to be killed soon. Anyway, that reason for that cursed sword has been finally confirmed.

    2- As for ressurection:

    2.1. Luckly, against all odds, Sun gets a complete revival!

    2.2. Who said Sun would pay the price? He is dead! No, no, we all know someone who would clearly do it: Lesus Judgement! I am 100% sure he’ll pay some sort of price for Grisia’s revival!

  17. Little Writer

    Was this what you guys meant when you said cliffhanger?
    Oh god. Ohmygod.
    Can I just like request for everything else to be put on hold until we finish LSK? Please?
    Thanks for the good work as always, PR!

  18. Wait. Now I’m curious about something. Didn’t pink want Sun to be a death knight? So why did Hell return the body the rest of the knights? Maybe he knew that they might be able to resurrect him and this will allow him to take on the burden of being the demon king instead of Sun. Who knows maybe there is more going on here than we see.

    • @7seli91
      Yea I still think pink is too kind. This way she can keep Roland when his duties as demon king is over. And it seems she hate dealing with troublesome matters because like she said, dealing with the living g is a hassle so killing sun is faster to transfer demon king duties over to Roland. And she probably knows that sun can be ressurected regardless as a living person or the dead. He will be around. But I just don’t know what purpose does Mr unicorn has? Anyway, just re-read the part where sun dies, it makes sense.. Maybe ha ha

    • @7seli91
      By the way, I still want to believe in Pink! (until I read the next chapter I can wait for my heart to feel dejected)

  19. A Sun Knight who is also a former Demon King candidate and was resurrected by the God of Light… Roland and Pink are in a lot of trouble.

  20. NanoLaughing

    *GASP* WHAT WILL GRISIA LOSE? Was Roland blinded by his desire of being the Sun Knight? but wait; since he’s the Demon King now, it’s impossible for him to be the Sun Knight….. I think I understand what’s going to happened next. Sun and Roland– (gets blasted with holy light)

  21. Yay, Thank You PR =D
    I am guessing Roland is putting on an act. He went against Pink and brought Sun to the temple. He should know that they would resurrect Sun. I am guessing he wants them and Sun to kill him.
    But that my theory!
    Can’t wait for the next chapter =D

  22. karencita

    Thanks PR! Keep the good and consistent work that you have always made :)

  23. I would like to appreciate how much Ceo appreciates Adair. XD *imagines Ceo running away if Adair were to collapse* Even Vival is worried for Adair!

    (why yes, isn’t that the most important part of the chapter… *gets shot*)

  24. Ahhhhh omg cant waaait! Thank you so much for translating such a good novelll<3

  25. I want to know what happens next!!! I hope Roland can still be one of the Holy knights after this is over… I really want to read the next chapter soon. Thanks PR for translating this awesome novel!!!

  26. what a horrible cliffhanger! I hope we’ll see what happens next soon (I’m not rushing all the wonderful ppl translating this series, I’m just full of anticipation!)
    either way, roland most likely was controlled by pink when he killed sun otherwise why would he bring back his corpse to the temple? he awoke when sun died and now took the corpse away so pink wouldn’t make sun an undead creature and sun had a chance to be resurrected. otherwise there’s no way pink’d let go of sun’s corpse.
    what an emotional chapter, poor sun, lost his sight, his golden hair, killed the only woman who loved him, got betrayed by roland and even killed. he really deserves a happy ending. oh my, I’m crying…

  27. Ooh, The side effect better be super ultra more holy light. Or, you know, just, no side effect

  28. Wow. I know that cliffies are supposed to make the reader anticipate the next chapter of volume of a novel but this is just torture!

    And all these people with theories that Rolland isn’t completely bad because he brought Sun back, applause to you, because that never crossed my mind. Obviously they’ll resurrect Sun, but the Rolland doing it on purpose thing just never occurred to me, but I’m glad you guys came up with that or I would hate him forever (he was one of my faves).

    This is getting intense!

    Thanks for the translations!

  29. Here’s my theory
    1. The wound that broke Grisia’s collar bone had two purposes:
    A. Ronan could not let him suffer anymore and showed mercy
    B. Make the corpse less desirable to Pink
    2. Ronan took Sun to the temple to save him
    3. Sun will wake with a side effect; my guesses are:
    A. Loss of the ability to gather holy element
    B. Loss of emotional attachment to the holy knights and other people (reason being the dream he had in one of the chapters about killing them and because they are the most important to him excluding sweets)
    C. Lose his conscience and morals that he may or may not have
    D. Strengthing in the ability to gather Dark element
    I can’t wait to see (read) what happens next >_<

    • @Maddy I would think (D) would be next to impossible because if Roland is now the Demon King, it would mean that the fragment Grisia had was sucked into Roland to become whole again inside Roland. I would believe that was what allowed Grisia to handle the dark element and so well (and to take it even further, all other elemental magic). So maybe, he loses the ability to gather any elements, instead?

  30. I am still aghast at Roland’s behavior in the previous chapter & this chapter. But confused as to why he brought them the body of Grisia. That does seem to defy Pink’s plan. I would think that the poor Pope would be the one to pay the price for casting the resurrection spell. Maybe now he will look older…like in his mid-twenties! I agree w/ the previous post by lucathia – Adair is very much a valued member of the Church of the God of Light! That was an important point in the chapter, too. I really enjoy this story so much – thank you for the translation!

  31. I cant help but think that the god of light is a girl after this cappy :? (cuss you know every sun knight is *cough*(eye candy)*cough* and whatever they say I’LL STILL LOVE YOU ROLAND!!! (and grisia) just remember he has no emotion cant feel em darn emotion anymore (damn em hater’s…..)

  32. creamofturtle

    That was the best cliffhanger eveeeeerrrrrrrr!!!!!!! And I just thought it was interesting they stopped referring to Roland by name but by ‘the Demon Kiing’… Dunno if it’s important at all, tho

    *raises hand*

    Add another vote for early release of next LSK chapters, please. ;_; I’ll beg if it helps.

    This is comparable to the end of The Half-Blood Prince, where you get hit by deaths of main characters and revelations and all sorts of things and then it just cuts off. Only, when I read The Half-Blood Prince for the first time, The Deathly Hallows was already out and I could read it directly after. That makes this WORSE.

    The previous chapter was sort of… okay, Sun in a near death/death situation… he’s been in several of those. I mean, LSK started with one of those situations. I didn’t really believe he’d die. And then this. This.

    DASH IT. Even if he DOES come out alive, someone is going to get some sort of side effect, and it’s not going to be small, either. Just… AAAARGH. *hits head against wall*

  34. Aaaah, Roland is such a good child~
    But waaah, I’m afraid Lesus might blame himself for letting Grisia go alone with Roland instead of insisting to tag along… Nooo poor baby, don’t blame yourself too much–

  35. Oh-Dear-God! I’m relieved because now we’re sure Sun is alive again, but what would the side effect be? I hope it isn’t something bad… or that it’s funny, at least :D
    My faith in Roland has been restored as well. I think he just wants his friends to kill him, which means he’s such a sad, melancholic and masochist guy… Which I totally LOVE!!! Hahaha :D
    Thanks a lot for the translation! Can’t wait for next chapter!

  36. Yu Wo is so mean… let the main character die… Dammit! I cried in this chapter!!! Suddenly, even I want kill Roland!

  37. Hmmm…

    Though people keep theorizing that Roland is going against Pink by bringing Sun’s body to the Holy Temple, what if that’s just part of her plan? Maybe she’s planned for something to happen when he revives.

    I’m very curious though about what will be taken away. I doubt it will be his ability to use holly light, because I think he really does need that to be able to continue being the Sun Knight. Even if it was taken away from him, the other Holy Knights could probably help him make up for it.

    I do hope though that Roland isn’t being completely controlled, but I guess I’ll just have to wait and see. :D

  38. That damned bastard KILLED Sun!!!! He actually dared to betray him, and after all Sun’s done for him too!! You traitor, Roland!

    After reading this chapter, I’m so sad I’m furious. If Roland had been faking camaraderie with the Twelve Holy Knights all this time, I swear- I DON’T CARE IF HE’S ALREADY DEAD, I’LL MAKE HIM SUFFER A FATE SO MUCH WORSE THAN DEATH THAT HE’LL WISH HE’D STAYED DEATH IN THE FIRST PLACE!!! Gah, I really want to send him to personally repent in front of the God of Light right now.

    Sun actually died! I can’t believe it- I refuse to believe it!! I thought no Sun Knight could die while in office… but… but… Yu Wo, how can you be so mean as to kill off the main character…TT-TT These recent chapters of LSK are breaking my heart…

    Please update soon, and thanks for the hard work! (Now please excuse me as I go and vent out my irritations on the nearest inanimate object)

    • @月
      Well, how much of a choice did he have though? What I think is this: Yes, Roland is loyal to Pink, but he’s even more loyal to Grisia. Remember how Pink wanted Grisia to bleed to death to keep wounds on his body to a minimum to make resurrecting him as an undead creature easier? And now there he is, not only with a stab wound through his heart to end his suffering but back in the one place where to find someone who can actually revive him – the pope. But it doesn’t just end there. By killing Grisia, Roland took his fragment and became the Demon King, meaning Grisia would not have to and could stay as the Sun Knight like he wished. Roland said it before, he feels like he doesn’t belong in the temple, so how could he not have an “If one of us has to go, I’d rather have Grisia stay. He’s their Sun Knight, I’m the outsider”-kind of mindset? I’m afraid he even believes he doesn’t deserve to be one of the Twelve Holy Knights, undead as he is. That’s also why he tells Lesus and the others to find him, I believe. He knows someone needs to take the position of the Demon King, so he does. He’s that kind of dutiful guy, we know that. He doesn’t become the Demon King for the power. And I think he wants to use it as an excuse to have the others end him. I think Roland might believe he does not deserve to exist the way he does, a powerful undead that killed his own closest friend and Sun Knight.
      Well, when I said he doesn’t want the power, I mean to rule… I figure the power of the Demon King does come in handy when you want to go up against not only your Lich Guide but the Necromancer who summoned you to take their “promised prey” away from them. I’m sure Pink isn’t too happy to have Grisia’s corpse stolen from her~

  39. Sellychen95

    Roland has a reason for doing that actually haha

  40. Well, I’m thanksfull to Roland for bringing Sun’s corpse back. Imagine how the Twelves Holly Knights would have react if they had saw Roland as the Demon King, with Pink at his right side and Grisia the Death Lord at his left… they would have been emotionaly destroyed at this sight! poor them!
    Thanks a million times for your work PR!

  41. the worst!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I reall hate Roland for murdering Sun!
    I really hate Pink for murdering her child….I mean, her candidate! WHAT THE HELL, is SHE CRAZYY!!!!!! at last, Roland Stabbed her, may her corpse be destroyed for good.

    at least, Roland Stabbed again Sun to end his suffering………….
    wait…………..

    I thought for a moment that Pink would be inside the corpse of Sun ( remember how She made Sun Sign that his body would belong to her after he died….:S …….and we know that pink has been stabbed…:S)……and they used ressurection to allow her to live on another corpse again OMG OMG! TELL ME IT IS NOT TRUE!

    please please PR! release earlier the next LSK or you´ll have lots of dead fans ( ON my tombstone they will write:” death by cliffhangers” :P) because my heart is really really crying! T^T sunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

  42. Xeraphina

    Oh. My. Gosh! I can’t believe that Roland actually killed Grisia! I thought he would stop… I can’t wait to find out what happens next. Oh, this series is getting so good!

  43. shanagi95

    I certainly hope he will gain back what he had lost before! His eyesight, his hair color, and his memories! :D

  44. I think he’ll lose all his holy magic… That seems more appropriate if I’m the writer. Poor Sun. But with his holy knights around him, even if he loses his holy magic, I guess it’s not such a big deal.

  45. Thanks for the translation.

  46. Roland, you have to be in there somewhere! I believe in you!

  47. Gah! lol Can’t wait for the next chapter :D Two things, though: first, when is mentions Sun’s pupil’s being dilated as a sign of him being dead, they would already be dilated from being blind and, second, Sun opens his eyes at the end, but they were already open. I’m sure this isn’t a translation error, sensei probably just made a mistake :P

  48. nekokoneko

    I think Sun will gain something. However, I don’t really think that he’ll gain his hair color back because a.) it seems trivial compared to things like his eyesight, and b.) that last line there kinda emphasized the white hair.
    I guess the emphasis could be interpreted the opposite way, like it’ll be changed, but I still think that he’ll be gaining something else.

  49. crosszeria

    Awwwww,,,,I waited 2 months to read this only to find,,,,,this :(
    man,,,,I knew Roland is suspicious,,I mean why did he dissapear during Grisia’s election,,,,and then the chapter before this I think Pink shouted sumthing to Roland but dunno what,,,,he brings back Grisia to the temple even though Pink going to use grisia as an undead, maybe he doing it purposely to grisia since he’s making it his fault to killing him in front of the holy knights,,,,
    Can’t wait to see the next chapter,,,maybe the effect is sun being unable to gain holy element since the next chapter’s title is insanity and demon king moves in,,,,,I mean well Grisia already lost his sight which makes him great at phsyic magic, and his hair become white (so unlikely sun knight),,,,
    Yu Wo really knew to make her fans screaming XD
    and thank you PR for always updating ^^b

  50. Mellow Orange

    I’ve been screaming “why” and “Grisia” and “Roland” while flailing around on the couch for the past ten minutes, simply trying to comprehend what just happened. I’m not any closer to an answer.
    Sakes…Yu Wo, I love you. I think, however, that I may also hate you a little bit.
    How?
    How could you possibly end a book on a cliffhanger like THAT?! *jabs my finger up at the last sentence of the chapter* It doesn’t even grant the reader the comfort of saying “Grisia opened his eyes,” oh no!! It just says “The white haired man opened his eyes!” I’m panicking at the implications. And the fact that I’m reading so much into that single line ought to tell you how many times I’ve reread it in the past ten minutes, hoping for another chapter to somehow magically appear beneath it.
    This is just…absolutely beautiful. If I didn’t know that I’m going to have to wait so long for the next volume (and I understand why that wait is necessary, I’m not bashing the translators here – you guys do a fantastic job, by the way) then I would absolutely adore the use of this cliffhanger. It’s just so wonderfully cruel. *headdesk*
    …*sobs*
    By the way…thank you so much, translators! You are amazing people, and I don’t know what I’d do without you. Oh wait…yes I do. Without you guys, I’d have gone through my miserable little life, never having known the wonder that Is 1/2 Prince and Legend of the Sun Knight! Thank you so, so much for opening my eyes to the divine beauty that is the realm of the God of Light! <3

  51. I still think Roland is good.

    First off, he didn’t leave Grisia to Pink. And I bet he’s the one who gave Grisia the chest wound that killed him, going against Pink’s orders to just let him bleed to death. He also brought Grisia back to the Temple, to the Knights.

    …I strongly suspect he’s planning to perish.

    Tsk.

    P.S. THANKS SO MUCH for fixing the weird glitch that made me unable to access the site! ;) <3!!!
    P.P.S. THANKS FOREVER FOR THE CHAPTER! And you were right. It's a deadly cliffie!

  52. I think Roland really has lost control, one way or another.
    I’m not really sure how he ended up this way, but one way is probably from the Demon King Fragments. As pointed out earlier, Sun seemed to be entranced by the power he gained from Charlotte’s fragment, even believing he’d be happier off as the Demon King. (As if Sun could ever be happy away from Ecilan’s sweets.) Pink could have possibly been in control of Roland while Sun was alive and Roland only had one out of three fragments. But when Roland had all of the fragments, he probably became powerful enough to throw off any restraints Pink previously had on him.
    If Roland’s intention from the beginning was to kill Sun to absolve him from being a Demon King Candidate, then he wouldn’t have snapped Grisia’s collarbone and pulped his heart to make the Resurrection more difficult. The Pope said that the neck wound was what caused massive blood loss and Grisia would have died from that even without his heart being destroyed. The shoulder wound would have just been another complication. Pink even mentioned there was a non-violent way of transferring Demon King-ship from one candidate to another! Even if the Cathedral of the Shadow God disagreed with Roland becoming an undead Demon King, unless Grisia was willing to cooperate, there would have been little they could have done about that other than letting the world be absorbed by lands of darkness. And if Roland was in full control of himself, that would have been a good thing mostly. He’d be able to conscientiously dispose of the world’s dark element, ensuring that some later generation Demon King doesn’t just totally mess things up.
    Demon King Roland seems to be in control of his own actions in this chapter at least. Pink wanted Grisia’s corpse to become an undead servant, yet Roland spirited the corpse away to give it to the Pope and the eleven still-living Holy Knights. Possibly trying to find some imitation of amusement, he dramatically drops the package, pins the Knights to their seats, laughs at their declarations of revenge and leaves. If he really was the Roland we knew, he would have handed the corpse over gently, apologized, and left. Pink wouldn’t have been able to watch him in the meeting room, so there’d be no need to keep up a pretense that he was anything else but Roland.

    If he isn’t a cruel, cold-hearted Death Monarch, then he’s going crazy from the pain it takes to stay with people from the living.
    Seeing no other way to convince anyone to destroy him (I’m guessing that tying himself to a stake to burn isn’t going to work anyone since he’s a Death Lord, not just a Death Knight anymore.), he goes to extreme lengths to provoke the Holy Knights and Grisia to attack him, making sure no one holds back anymore. Grisia would be the only one able to send Roland to a final peace, assuming that the Resurrection wouldn’t have affected his holy light skills. To ensure Grisia isn’t left with the burden of being Demon King, he takes in on himself first, hopefully being able to shed some of the excess dark element before leaving. And as to whether or not Roland can act well enough to enrage the Holy Knights… He’s had plenty of practice mimicking human emotions over the past year or so.
    The only way he’d come up with such a flawed and painful scheme would be if he broke somewhere along the way, otherwise there would have been more peaceful ways to meet this end. The Demon Candidacy ritual could have transferred the power over to Roland, and after finishing that business, he probably could have convinced Grisia to let him go, as one last favor. Grisia cares too much about his brothers to force them to stay behind to selfishly make himself happier.

  53. thanks for the awesome translation. love your translations. it’s so much easier to read than the chinese novel itself.

  54. I’m calling it Roland is a full on Death Seeker.
    Killing Sun is the only way to get Sun to kill him.
    If Sun died he will definitely go back and find and kill his killer!

  55. Man, am I the only one, or did anyone else secretly hope that sun would become demon king?
