The Legend of Sun Knight Volume 7: Ending the Demon King, Part One

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


Prologue: Insanity – translated by lucathia

An enormous amount of holy light engulfed the entire conference room. Although the rays of light were piercing, none of the people present closed their eyes. Instead, they did their utmost to widen their eyes, afraid to even blink.

All of them stared in concentration at Grisia Sun.

He lay on top of the conference table, his white hair splayed across the surface. His clothes were completely stained with blood. It contrasted against his white hair and clothes, the blood being a red deep enough to shock any who laid eyes on him. However, what was even more frightening were those blue eyes of his. They were open but lacking in luster.

The Twelve Holy Knights… now only ten… were all fixated on those blue eyes.

Enveloped by holy light, the blue eyes slowly closed. Upon seeing this, everyone became elated but then became even more nervous. The eyes hadn’t opened back up.

They started to panic.

Elmairy was the first to yell anxiously, “What’s going on? Did Resurrection f-fa…” Fail? He could not even complete his sentence. He was afraid that if he uttered it aloud, it would become true!

The Pope did not answer. He only focused on continuously releasing holy light. When they saw this, no-one dared to disturb him and could only stare uneasily at Grisia’s face, praying with all their might to the God of Light for his eyes to quickly open.

With each second that passed by, everyone became more and more nervous. There was still no indication that those closed eyes would open again.

The amount of holy light gradually dropped and the Pope’s face turned ashen. Even though he continued to pour out holy light, his expression and his complexion indicated he was pushing his limits.

Suddenly Lesus bellowed, “Grisia Sun! You’re not allowed to sleep anymore. Wake up!”

At first, they were surprised by his shout, but then they immediately followed him and started yelling too.

“Sun, you can’t die!”

“Sun, you must not abandon us! You said that the Twelve Holy Knights would never abandon the Twelve Holy Knights!”

“Without the Sun Knight, we will no longer have a path to follow!”

“Sun, the blueberry pie is done!”

“…”

Everyone turned in unison to look at Ecilan.

When he saw everyone stare at him, Ecilan was a little at a loss, but he hesitantly explained, “I, I just thought this would be the most effective.”

“Right!” Realization suddenly dawned upon everyone.

Ceo immediately turned and shouted by Grisia’s ear, “Sun! Judgment is angry! He says that if you don’t wake up, he’s going to confine you for ten years!”

Georgo also shouted, “Sun, there’s a super hot babe who’s not wearing anything!”

Finally, even the Pope joined in. “Sun, if you don’t wake up right now, I’m going to deduct sixteen years worth of your salary!”

Whether the Pope had stumbled upon the right method to wake him or whether it was a coincidence, Grisia actually moved. Even though only his eyelashes fluttered, a movement so slight that they probably wouldn’t have noticed if they hadn’t all been focused on his eyes, at this moment, such a small movement was enough to quiet everyone down in an instant.

All of them waited, their eyes wide…

Suddenly, Grisia sucked in a large breath, then bent over and continuously coughed in pain.

“Sun woke up!”

It was unknown who shouted it first. Everyone else followed him and started celebrating, jumping around and yelling like a bunch of crazy people having a party. They displayed not an ounce of dignity normally associated with the appearances of the Twelve Holy Knights. The only person whose expression had not changed for the better was Lesus. He carefully examined Grisia’s body.

From his outer appearance, it didn’t look like he had lost anything, but that was not enough assurance. Some things, even if they were lost, could not be detected from the outside, similar to the previous time when Grisia lost his sight.

He opened his mouth and asked, “Sun? Can you hear me?”

Although it was still unknown whether or not Grisia had heard, everyone else had. They all stopped. In a moment, the happiness on their faces vanished without a trace. Their focus returned to Grisia. They only saw that he had already stopped coughing, yet his breathing was still heavy and quick. As he was lying on his side and his white hair was all over the place, they could not see his face.

“Grisia?” Lesus asked quietly.

Grisia turned his head slightly toward Lesus. His expression was still clouded.

So he can hear? Lesus’s worries lessened by one. He even began to hope maybe the God of Light really did favor Grisia that much and did not exact any price. This is a big possibility; otherwise Grisia’s holy magic wouldn’t have been that strong, right?

“Sun, open your mouth and say something,” Lesus called out over and over again.

Everyone began to feel nervous, worrying about whether or not Grisia had become mute. However, he suddenly moaned in pain, “Uhh…”

He hasn’t lost his voice either!

Everyone was almost completely relieved. His outer appearance looked fine, he hadn’t lost his hearing or his voice, and it looked like there was nothing wrong. They even started to hope that maybe Grisia hadn’t lost anything.

“No…” Grisia suddenly grabbed his head with both hands, his expression pained.

Everyone was shocked. They asked one after another, “Sun, what’s wrong?”

“No!” Sun gasped and then began screaming, “No, no, no. It wasn’t me! It wasn’t!”

“…Sun?”

When Grisia held his head and screamed, numerous magic spells burst out around him. Though these spells weren’t harmful in the least, everyone was caught off guard by Grisia’s sudden attack and the people closest to him were lightly injured. However, they weren’t at all concerned about their injuries, only surprised at Grisia’s unexpected scream and attack.

Though they were all blocked by the Shield of Earth, the magic spells came at them nonstop. Lesus grabbed Grisia by his shoulders and yelled, “Sun! Stop this!”

Grisia stiffened and raised his head. There were rips and bloodstains all over his clothes, his white hair was a mess, and on top of that, his expression was frantic; he could not look any worse than he currently did.

“Sun, what’s going on?” Elmairy was so worried that he was nearly crying. He had never seen Grisia look this panicked before.

Though no one else asked, their expressions said that they also wanted to ask this question.

“It wasn’t me, it wasn’t me, it wasn’t…” Grisia merely repeated that line over and over again. He became more and more frantic.

Lesus calmly asked, “What didn’t you do?”

Grisia remained beside himself in panic, as if he had not heard Lesus’s words at all; like he was completely submerged in his own world.

Lesus carefully observed Grisia, but he could not deduce any clues from Grisia’s eyes because Grisia was basically blind… He hadn’t felt the impact of that as deeply as he did currently.

Everyone yelled in worry. “Knight-Captain Judgment, what’s going on with Sun?”

There was no way Lesus could know either, but he did know everyone was currently confused and needed someone to calmly tell them that everything would be all right. Even better, they needed someone to give them orders, to tell them what they should do now, to make them so busy that they wouldn’t have time to panic… that person had always been Grisia.

Currently, Lesus had no choice but to play that role. He bellowed, “Don’t panic! Grisia has only just been revived, so his mind is not very clear yet.”

“It was me,” Grisia said abruptly.

Stunned, they all turned to look at Grisia. Even though he’d suddenly switched from denial to acknowledgment, they were not at all happy. Grisia’s complexion looked even worse than before. If Grisia’s state were previously described as extraordinarily panicked, then his current condition was practically deathly despair.

Dejected, he mumbled, “So it really was me…”

Lesus roared, “Sun, wake up! Only the Twelve Holy Knights are present. There is no one else!”

Grisia seemed to have finally heard Lesus’s words. He stilled, and then he struggled to get off the table, nearly falling. Lesus, who was nearest to him, quickly helped him up.

He never would have thought that Grisia would pull out the Divine Judgment Sword.

Grisia’s action stunned Lesus, who immediately took two steps back. He was not afraid that Grisia would harm him. However, since Grisia was not currently in a good state, if he were to swing the sword and hurt Lesus, Grisia would definitely feel very remorseful in the future.

He didn’t expect that Grisia would flip the sword around and plunge it towards his own heart…

“No-” Lesus quickly stepped forward, but Grisia’s action was so resolute that he couldn’t make it in time.

Clang.

The Divine Judgment Sword was sent flying by a knife. The two weapons both pierced the wall, and everyone saw that the knife was Metal’s. Because everything had happened so quickly, there was no reaction until a few seconds after everyone saw the two blades quivering in the wall. Then, they realized that Grisia had nearly killed himself with a sword, and became so scared that they broke out into cold sweat.

Lesus rushed forward and grabbed Grisia by his shoulders. He yelled furiously, “What are you doing? Do you know what you just did?”

“I did it. It was me… So it was me. Everything was me!”

Grisia began to laugh loudly. He laughed so much that when he raised his head, there were tears leaking out of the corners of his eyes. His laughter ended in dry coughs, which became sobs, before he finally fell to the floor and started weeping in agony.

At that moment, don’t mention the others being scared witless, even Lesus was no longer able to keep his composure. He forced Grisia up from the floor and shook him violently back and forth. At the same time, he yelled, “Sun, Sun, you have to wake up! You haven’t done anything. You have just been revived. Do you remember? You were…” Betrayed by Roland.

He stopped abruptly because this was really not a good time to discuss something like betrayal. Grisia was already so agitated that he could barely recognize the people around him. There was no need to upset him even more.

However, there was not even the slightest reaction from Grisia. He stilled for a moment and then looked like he had seen something. He suddenly got up and dashed toward some direction… It wasn’t until Lesus flattened Grisia against the floor that the others realized Grisia’s target was actually the sword and the dagger in the wall.

Grisia struggled with all his might, but Lesus’s strength was much greater. Slowly, he stopped struggling, but instead dark element started gathering all around him until countless blades brimming with dark element formed and hung in the air above the room. All of the blades were pointed in the same direction – at Grisia himself.

Lesus did not pay any attention to the Dark Blades. Only anger existed on his face. He could not help but yell at the person below him, “Sun, stop this! It was very difficult to save you, yet you want to die?”

Grisia tilted his head and wasn’t even looking at Lesus. Multitudes of Dark Blades dropped upon them all at once, but none of them hurt the two of them as the Shield of Earth had long since been cast to protect them.

Lesus pushed Grisia’s face to the floor forcefully, but Grisia’s eyes didn’t focus. Even if Lesus stared at his face, he could not determine where Grisia was putting his attention.

Though Grisia had been blind for some time, he had always “looked” at things, such as the person he was speaking to. So even though they knew he was blind, they hadn’t really understood what that meant because he was truly too good at pretending.

Seeing this, Lesus felt uneasy. Every time Grisia dropped all pretenses, nothing good happened. He could not help but yell, “Sun, what has gotten into you? Can’t you see that we’re in front of you?”

“A side effect…”

Everyone turned to look toward the Pope, who seemed to have thought of something. Their expressions were all frightening, each worse than the other’s. The Pope pushed on and said, “No matter how I look at him, Sun doesn’t seem like he has any other side effects, but my success rate of a perfect resurrection is only 10%. The chance of gambling and winning is not very high. What if going crazy was the…”

“Don’t speak nonsense!” Ceo cut the Pope off and yelled, “Sun has only just woken up. It’s just that his mind isn’t clear yet!”

Seeing everyone else nodding hurriedly, the Pope closed his mouth and didn’t press the matter further, but he knew very clearly… that inside everyone’s hearts, they knew that those words were actually nonsense. Two other people present had previously been resurrected as well, and neither of them had displayed Grisia’s current condition.

Elmairy suddenly yelled in alarm, “Knight-Captain Judgment, Sun is absorbing dark element!”

On hearing this, everyone became stunned. Lesus immediately bellowed, “Bring the Divine Sun Sword over!”

Once the two of them finished speaking, everyone realized what was happening. Because the rate at which Grisia was absorbing the dark element had rapidly exploded, even someone who didn’t have an inclination for sensing could discover the abnormal gathering of dark element. They were all holy knights of the holy element, so naturally they were more sensitive toward the dark element.

Grisia even cast Bone Prison, and those who were caught unprepared were knocked away.

Lesus was the first to crawl back up. He rushed toward the Resurrection Circle and drew out the Divine Sun Sword. Then, he brought it with him as he ran in Grisia’s direction. Grisia looked very despondent, as if he had a natural loathing of the light. He sat on the floor and raised a hand. Numerous bones sprung up from the floor by his side, the Bone Prison layering upon itself like a gigantic, white cocoon of thistles and thorns.

Lesus would never give up advancing just because of that. He used the Divine Sun Sword to slash at the Bone Prison. It was as easy as using a heated knife to cut butter. He slashed and slashed, and in a matter of seconds, reached Grisia.

Grisia did not wait for him. He reached a hand out to his Bone Prison. Immediately, his hand was riddled with cuts by the sharp bones, but he was not bothered. He grabbed one of the bones and pierced it towards his heart.

Luckily, when the tip had barely touched his chest, an arrow shattered the bone.

Grisia stilled. Right after, he reached out for another bone and stabbed it toward his chest without the slightest hesitation. Elmairy’s arrow stopped him again in time. When Grisia finally realized that he would not be able to use the bones, he switched to using dark element to attack himself…

“Stop it!” Everyone started destroying the Bone Prison.

As he cast the Shield of Earth to protect Grisia, Georgo yelled, “Sun, can you hear us or not?”

Grisia merely continued to attack himself with all his might. Simultaneously, he repeatedly cast Bone Prison, not letting anyone near him.

“Grisia Sun!”

Lesus yelled angrily. He brought the Divine Sun Sword down behind his waist, immediately following that up with the starting position for swinging his sword. He paused for around three seconds, and then he swung. His battle aura flared following his swing, destroying all of the Bone Prisons before him. It knocked into Grisia, but was stopped by the Shield of Earth.

Following that, Lesus threw aside the Divine Sun Sword, rushed to Grisia’s side, and performed a hand chop to Grisia’s neck, rendering him unconscious before he could make a sound.

When Grisia fell, the dark element he had gathered immediately dispersed. After all, this was the Church of the God of Light, and even the Divine Sun Sword was present, so it was truly not a good place for gathering dark element. It could even be said that a normal mage would not have been able to gather any dark element in here.

“Captain Judgment, Sun is…” Ceo started to raise a question but stopped halfway. He really didn’t know if he wanted to receive an answer.

Lesus was also somewhat at a loss. Yet as per normal, he retained the composure that the Judgment Knight should have, and said calmly, “Maybe Resurrection has muddled his mind a little. Maybe some sleep will help. No need to worry too much.”

“Is that so?” Elmairy quickly asked, “But he didn’t even notice that we were by his side. That’s, that’s…”

But after saying that much, he copied Ceo and closed his mouth. That was because he saw the panicked expressions on everyone’s faces; even the one who was usually the calmest out of them all was no exception… They needed to calm down and to wait for a change. Maybe it really was like what Knight-Captain Judgment had said, that Sun only needed to sleep and he would recover.

Right! Nothing would happen to Sun. He only needs to sleep a little, and when he wakes up, he will be back to normal…

  1. I can’t believe I figured out the password. Ecilan’s blueberrypie was suspicious ;3

    Anyways love this series. Thanks for your hard work. So many cliffhangers. ;_;

    • @Netto
      Agreed, though I would say the typo was a give away. PR is way to meticulous most of the time for something like that to happen in a joke post. Thanks for the update.

  2. Love you guys! You’re the reason I like April Fools so much and look forward to it! You’re the best!

  3. Oddmoonlight

    Darn it. I need to know why, why, why! Give me more info. *Sits in a corner waiting for new chapter…*

  4. I CAME WITH BLUEBERRY PIE (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

    Wow, this was a dark chapter, the darkest in the series I think. I can’t wait for the next one so we can have Sun’s perspective and see what’s going on in his head.

    • @CheyPie
      Yay, yay, pie!

      It is indeed a very dark chapter… Which made me feel bad for pulling a joke about it… :’D;;;; (Yu Wo!!! First you kill the main character of a story written in 1st person, and now you make him insane? She definitely likes torturing herself!)

  5. But don’t forget the blueberrypie!
    that is the clue!

  6. Thank you for making the password hint easy enough for someone as dense as me to figure out!

    Gyahh! Yu Wo really is too good at cliffhangers! Though the impact was slightly lessened due to the april fools joke

  7. NyakoFCC

    Woah? WOAH! Thank you very much!

  8. LennyThynn

    It’s…. somewhat sad, the difference in tone between the April Fools chapter, and the real one. They’re polar opposites.

    I knew nothing good would happen, but… ;_;
    Another cliffhanger… well, we’re getting the next chapter this month! Not too long to wait. Thank you again, everyone of PrinceRevolution<3

    • @LennyThynn
      They are, aren’t they… ;___; My heart breaks for Grisia…

    • LennyThynn

      The continuation: This chapter affected me so much I’ve been having stupid dreams as to what will happen next. They keep on showing one future, rewinding, and showing another. It’s been… a very turbulent week.

      *commence making of fan art starring broken Grisia, made of bits of his heart and mine, seeing as they’re both in pieces anyway*

    • @LennyThynn
      so true… after a good laugh with the Apri fools chapter, this chapter has made my heart sank…
      (TT-TT)

    • LennyThynn

      @chay
      Somehow, the fact that the April Fools chapter was so lighthearted, made this one all the more dark ;_;

  9. That april fool’s release gave me a heart attack.. Thanks for the blueberry pie, ecilan..

  10. guy smiley

    I though it was pretty obvious actually, but high-five nonetheless. I’m honestly glad the other one was an April Fool’s joke, as I hate gender bender with a passion. Thanks PR for the translation btw, I’m super stoked.

  11. Thanks for your hard work and fast release, the wait was killing me ;)
    The password was quite obvious fortunately or I might’ve truly died of LSK deprivation ^^

  12. Password was easy. The word is never usually together without spaces :P
    And this did not help with the previous volume’s cliffhangers o.o

  13. Jasae Bushae

    ….I think this is even more startling and nerve racking than leaving it at a cliffhanger…
    …Im just going to go back a page and pretend that Grisia’s a girl for the rest of the month…

    • Lunar191

      @Jasae Bushae
      I think I’m going to go join you in that world of happier delusions… at least until the new chapter comes out…

  14. hahaha, awsomes! i wonder how this is going to play out XD

  15. Immasweetslovinggirl

    YEA I GOT IT!
    I knew it was coming, I saw the date, I expected something and sure enough I got it but I was stll strung along the whole time! I kept thinking “maybe Yu Wu would troll us like this” but then I realized. “…no she wouldn’t” in fact it was PRINCE REVOLUTION TROLLING US! props PR…props

  16. guy smiley

    now i’m wondering did something in my original comment offend someone enough to censor it? or, umm, wtf?

    • @guy smiley
      No, we’re just not awake nor around 24/7 to approve comments. Patience! It usually takes less than a day for comments to be approved, but it can take longer sometimes if we’re busy. In this case, I was sleeping. Then at work. =P

  17. The April Fools joke is relatively simple this year. Even I got to this page >w<
    Thanks for all your work and efforts in providing translations.

  18. Tenebris

    Poor Sun…

  19. Aaaaaaah all you precious babies aaaaaaah
    (excuse me while I’m sitting in my corner wailing in my intense feelings for this series and its characters)
    Grisiaaaaa stop thaaaaat wah wah even though I have to admit angsty drama is a huge love of mine and so is stressed out/panicky Lesus but GRISIA NO. BAD SUN. BAD.
    //cradles them all

  20. I was sure the password was Feng Lan at first, but then realized it was two words so it should be something else. I had to read the whole chapter again :) It was fun XD
    I was waiting the whole week for April Fools joke THX

  21. I forgot to breathe for a while there… I should have read the REAL chapter first before reading the joke one. :( (though I wouldn’t have discovered the blue berry pie)

    I can’t… ugh…

  22. SonodaYuki

    Tell me this is a joke…

    • @SonodaYuki
      I was thinking the same that this better not be another PR April Fools joke ha ha. That would be too cruel like a dream within a dream kind of thing.

      wow.

      I cried.

      Thank you PR for the April fools chapter. You let me laugh before I cried reading the real deal.

  23. Little Writer

    Oh, no…
    Wow, LSK really got…dark all of a sudden. Forgive my fangirling tendencies, but it did very slightly heal my heart when Judge grabbed Sun’s face. I need something to hold on to…
    Thanks, PR! And for the April Fool’s chapter as well.
    This is just…so incredibly depressing. Yu Wo must be sadistic.

    • Demon Wolf

      @Little Writer
      Me too, but really, my heart hurt so much seeing Sun falling into deep -like -sea despair like that. Poor Sun!
      Yu Wo sensei~ how could yo torment my poor Grisia like that?
      Poor the Twelve Knight too, they have always seen Sun so scary powerfully and always maintaining his beautiful appearance no matter what happen( die gracefully and fall gracefully). and yet, now, Grissia looked so frantic…
      uwaaaaaaaaa, no more~This chapter is the one that I hate the most yet also the chapter that I would never able to forget for all eternally~

      Please Grissia, calm down~ seeing you like this make my heart sour…[Though I kinda enjoy seeing you all weak and sorry like this a bit. Make me want to protect you in my embrace, Lusus can does it for me though…hâhhahaha] Just kidding.

  24. Maybe Sun’s childhood memories has been recovered before he died. And when he has been revive, he was acting weird and he was in denial of something.. maybe due to killing Charlotte?

    Thanks for your hard work, PR!

    • @Silver
      That’s…not a bad assumption, actually. The side effect could be recovering all his sealed memories, and not insanity by itself.

    • @Nimue

      Exactly what I was thinking during it =o he finally remembers everything…

    • Demon Wolf

      @Silver
      What a confident! Me too think so!

  25. Margaret Torrain

    wow the password is actually quite obvious :)
    I came on the purpose of looking for a April Fool’s Day prank, and was quite disappointed when I saw nothing abnormal on the main page. But as I was reading the new chapter for LSK, I noticed half way that something was off. So then I was satisfied with the prank, but there’s even a real chapter out! Thanks so much, PR!!!!!!!!

  26. Uh oh. I have two ideas for what might have happened and neither are good. 1. Roland got body-swapped with Sun. 2. Sun believes he’s in the dream-world where he killed all the holy knights. I hope neither are true, but Yu Wo probably came up with something even worse.

    • @KT
      That’s what I was thinking too….. Both explain his initial reaction but I’m not sure the “Body Swap” theory explains him wanting to kill himself. I mean, is that something Roland would do? And him instinctively summoning dark element isn’t something Roland could do…. Unless Pink taught him?
      I think him hallucinating is the best bet…. But it’s Yu Wo so anything could happen!
      Argh! The suspense is killing me!
      I must know what happens to my Grisia!
      (I will admit that I was secretly hoping that Yu Wo would actually make him into a girl. Now that would have been a very VERY gutsy move XD)

    • mimi-dono

      @Genny
      For me, the body swap is a better theory!

    • Demon Wolf

      @mimi-dono
      That’s would be too interested, I like it… But the chance for it is too low…

    • @KT
      or maybe sun’s memory has returned and due to it he has a time problem…thinking he was back at his childhood days where he might have killed his parents/family, or friends, or enemies(who might have killed his family) and due to this traumatic experience he had….nah…im just throwing random guesses…but wouldnt it be great if it is so?

    • Amaybee

      @chay
      I was thinking it could also be because he blames himself for Roland? Didn’t pink say something like she turned him into a death knight b/c he wasn’t the sun knight?

    • @Amaybee
      Now I think of it…didn’t he mention something about wanting to become the sun knight in the previous chapters? Who knows…maybe he secretly wished for a body swap.

  27. This is killing me.

    Noooooooo! Grisia, please don’t be insane!

  28. Wow, that was intense! And Ice was so……sweet.
    Here’s a crazy theory of mine : it was Sun who cut off Neo’s arm.

  29. dollyfishe

    uh oh … couldnt it be that pink do something that made grisia want to kill himself over and over again ? that he actually realize that he was resurrected but didnt want that to happen ? ogh well, now i hate pink very much ~ much ~ much ~~~><~~~ *sob* i dont want this to happen, and i think yu wo will be more tricky than me. *sigh*

  30. sandal hat

    What sun really needs is that blue berry pie, that’s why he’s going insane, he is having a sweets withdrawl

  31. Sun…. TTATT
    I like the April Fool’s Day chapter better!! DXXX

  32. I was in a good mood at the start of the chapter, even laughting a lot when Ice said “the blueberry pie is done!” but then it get all dark and Sun didn’t react when the Ten Holy Knight called him…
    I don’t know what is happenning in his head but I hope he’ll get better soon.
    Thanks for your hard work and for the april fool joke guys!

  33. I worked out the code straight away, but it didn’t work until just now.
    I wish I hadn’t figured it out…I think I’ll just go and curl up in my sock drawer and cry for days…

  34. anipaper2

    FOR CHRIS’S SAKE Yu wo how dare you?!?!?!?!!?!?
    the april fools chapter was a WTF of “ummmmm… what did i just read?”, but this… THIS… is the mother of all WTF. it’s a WTF of “Yu Wo HOW DARE YOU??? HOW DARE YOU DO THAT TO SUN?!?!?!?!?!?”

  35. NanoLaughing

    Urgh, ow my heart. Thanks for the chapter, so excuse me as I weep to myself.

  36. Awesome chapter~~~ <333 Can't wait to see the next one! =D

  37. thanks for the early post!!

  38. Wow, this… I’m shocked. I read the April fools chapter (which was totally awesome and hilarious!) and then started reading this one happily hoping Sun will be just fine~ …NOPE. Now I have a great worry that Sun might have even somehow killed himself. If he keeps trying to stab himself through the heart (just like how he was killed) I wonder if something happened at Pink’s house that drove him crazy. You know, besides the whole massive betrayal thing. Maybe Pink’s “Roland, what are you doing?” question was directed at Roland holding out his weapon to Sun.
    Additionally, it would be horrible if Sun really has to live with insanity for the rest of his life. After reading some of the comments about hallucinating, I’m picturing the dead sea from Wadanohara. What if he sees everyone but they are all dead >.<;; On a different note, I'm slightly glad to see he can still gather elements pretty well even after his shard has been removed (please ALSO be able to gather holy light!!). I am now between the "It wasn't me" meaning he didn't kill himself, or he didn't die (I think either could make sense b/c after Lesus announced that Sun was revived, Sun dejectedly switched to "so it was me..". so either "I really did kill myself" or "I really did die").

  39. Hahaha… Seemed like everyone had an easy time getting to this page. ^^; I couldn’t get it until I read it three times and finally read through all the comments.

    Now, onto the story… my god. I’m VERY VERY anguished for Sun. IS HE OK?! Like… what was that?! That was definitely not normal behavior. Please, please get well! I really don’t want insanity to be the side effect for Sun!

  40. Wow, this is…an awesome chapter, actually. It made my heart race! Call me evil, but I LOVE the way in which Yu Wo becomes sadistic. I totally love it ^_^

    If the 11 other knights manage to get out of this, I bet my blueberry pie that none will ever really complain again about babysitting Sun. This is by far the worst “babysitting” situation they have to go through in the whole series! (If it keeps up after he wakes up, at least).
    Did he really didn’t listen, I wonder, or was he just too devastated? In any case, being able to gather so much darkness after a holy rez is really strange. And first he tried to stab himself with his sword, just to turn away from the holy light soon after…not a good sanity sign, even if he did recover some “good” memories.

    And, I had a good chuckle with the (also awesome) “extra” chapter. Thanks for everything, guys ^_^ <3

  41. Is this the only chapter being released early? Thank you for the hard work though!!

  42. Thank you for the early translation! :D Ahh that last line was way too foreshadowing…o.o

  43. SUUUUUUUUUN!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Excuse for a minute while I cry in a corner… TT^TT

  44. Kukuku I think I got a glimpse of the thruth…
    Dont worry Sun it’s Roland own fault, nothing to do with you.

  45. SUN! my poor baby! what happened to you! T^T

    ~thanks for the translation and the April fool

  46. Well, my first thought after Sun awoke (and tried to kill himself…) was; “Does he think he’s a Death Knight…!?” He seemed so terrified by the thought while Roland killed him. Though, he might “just” blame himself for Roland’s fate, as others here have suggested… The insanity and nightmarish illusion scenario also seem plausible. Please, Sun, don’t be insane…

    This was, as already pointed out, probably the darkest chapter in LSK history. I REALLY hope Sun will be okay!!! I miss his humor and wits… (>_<) Seriously, what a cliffhanger! I seriously CAN'T WAIT for the next chapter! Ugh… please update soon… Though, I have to say, excellent plot twist Yu Wo. I have to hand it to the brilliant author – you keep us in suspense. Didn't really see Pink's betrayal coming. She's just plain… evil. I just hope Sun will be okay, somehow…

    Well, I guess that's enough of my rant… And I just have to say thanks to the brilliant staff at PR, for the early update and hilarious "extra" chapter. Your work is simply great! (… and forgive me my impatience about the next chapter…)

      @elysia
      o.O i didn’t even think of that, maybe he really IS a death knight and that was the side effect. Would explain the shying away from holy light.

  47. Whoa! That was intense.
    My guess, that isn’t Sun. Although he is awfully good at magic…
    Thank goodness for the April Fools joke. Need the levity.

  48. The Book Girl

    So terrified of reading this, I waited a day. This far in any series, and the chapter afterwards can’t possibly end up happily. I mean, he’s blind, he lost the color of his hair, and then he died. (Why do all characters with white hair die (at least once)? How many white-haired characters can you name that die? How many white-haired characters can you name that don’t? Which list is longer? I can name a few (kind of) popular ones: Xerxes Break (Pandora Hearts manga), Shion (No. 6 anime)… And then Grisia goes and dies? It must be a curse. Curse of the white-haired characters. It exists. You know it does.) He does not have the slightest bit of luck. Ah, well. Sanity’s overrated. Although, there are many levels of crazy: schizo, non-filterers, ‘dreamers’, mental regression, etc. Then again, he was probably traumatized by Roland, though I suspect we won’t know how until later.
    As usual, great April Fool’s, but next time, make something a bit harder for those who love this stuff? I’m sorry, but that clue was so obvious that I got confused about how people could be confused.

  49. mahsanaru

    thank you.

  50. Yay I was able to finally get past the password =D
    After reading this chapter… I am sad now.
    I hope Sun gets well soon.
    Thank You PR =D

  51. ahaha, so its, the blueberry pie

  52. karencita

    He feels guilty because Roland became a death knight and even if he didnt want take part of it, he kind of got involved, so he feels responsible for Roland. Poor Grisia. I hope the 10 holy knights have patience (more than they already have) to deal with this matter.

  53. luquitas

    why…that must be another april’s fool day chapter, i want te real one, please

  54. I’m late to the party but what “OMG” chapter. I’ve just realized but sun’s greatest asset isn’t his magic, holy light or even connection to ppl like neo and judgment; it’s his brilliant mind. and that’s now shattered and replaced by suicidal thoughts – not nice. and how can the holy knights hinder sun from committing suicide other than to drug him or knock him out constantly? he can simply use his magic if they bind him or similar. geez, what a disaster. and what exactly did he do? I assume sun remembered everything he’s forgotten before, just like when he first tried to kill pink. be well, sun! >also as always a big thanks to the staff bringing us those translations. it’s truly appreciated.

  55. NOOOOOO!! SUN! WHY?!

    I’m going back to the April Fools chapter now. I can worry about Sun’s sanity when this isn’t another terrible cliffhanger…. :(

  56. So cruel how can she end the chapter like that I want my sun back

  57. i think the reason why he wanted to kill himself is because of the fact that he realized that he is the demon king. and the only thing that can prevent that is by killing himself

  58. theories, theories everywhere……….

    a) he can´t be a death knight, the process to Ressurrection is different to making-a-death-knight-process
    b) is he really insane? or has his death meant sth we don´t know yet?it´s just the shock for what his death and reviving means that he wants to kill himself in order to avoid some dissaster afterwards…….
    c) what the hell did he do? or didn´t do?
    d) is he really Grisia? not the God of Light reincarnated?or some other god?
    e)…………….and…………why I cannot Forget the fact that Grisia SOLD his afterlife to Pink long ago? now he belongs to her!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hysterically-maniatical Laughter! *tears*

  59. What a dramatic chapter! I’m so happy he’s alive, but so sad that he’s blaming himself for everything & feeling suicidal. Pretty heavy stuff. The next chapter will surely find some glimmer of hope… The Sun Knight looks best when the Sun Knight is happy & surrounded by the rest of his holy knights. May the God of Light shine down upon him in his infinite wisdom –>long-winded Sun Knight type speech, etc<–…

  60. What an unexpected turn of events! Yu Wo never fails to surprise me. I bet his sealed memories are finally released. I want to believe that Sun will be alright (・x・) Thank you so much for the translation!

  61. He’s having a continuation of the dream where he killed everyone?

  62. Wow.
    Wow to everyone who figured out the password cuz I had no idea.
    Wow to this chapter.
    Wow to all the emotions I’m feeling.
    Wow to the cliff hanger.
    Just…Wow.

  63. NUUUUU SUN YOU BETTER BE ALRIGHT WAAAII YOU DO THIIIISSSSS D:

    This chapter was so serious compared to the April fool’s one. Way to begin after a major cliff hanger….
    Just thinking, since Sun is able to gather dark element, does that mean Eternal Tranquility went missing? Would they keep him in one of those anti-element gathering rooms to stop him killing himself? Great job on this chapter and cant wait to see what happens next

  64. You know, when I read this I was so sad…. And then I went back to read the April fools chapter…
    Just imagine if Grisia not only turned into a girl, but ended up getting cat ears and tails too…. XD man, I kinda want that too happen now. (He might kill me if that wish was granted though… XD)

  65. Achipers

    My money is… that Sun became the demon king as Roland gave him the power. Why else would sun gather only darkness spells to hurt himself and is able to do it even in the Church of the god of light? Prolly wants to kill himself so he doesn’t have to be the Demon King and to safe humanity.

  66. I think Roland and Sun’s body got switched, i just got this feeling…maybe that was the price for resurrection? I don’t know, but it would be interesting of that was so. Thanks PR for such a great chapter, i can’t wait for the rest!

  67. What if “So it was me …” means he killed Judgement ( He gave a thought about this I’f I remind correctly). Of course Judgement had to had lied, then( that is quite unlike Judgement but on the other hand how could he possibly tell Sun “the one who killed me letting me blood till death are you”?).
    Anyway I root for the theorie he somehow regained his sealed memories, but I’m very intereted in the others :)
    Even of I understand Roland’s issue he’s not my favourite character so I can bear he becoming evil, or more precisely, to BE evil form the start however “Roland! wake up what so important being the Sun knight if to do so you have to betray all your friends ( old and new ones ?”

  68. thanx very much…. can u guys please post the next chapter soon?~guilty~

  69. I think his childhood Memories were restored.
    Considering Suns character hurting anyone would most likely make him very upset.
    Oh god of light I want to know so badly what happens next.
    Can’t wait for the next chapter :)!
    *gives thank you cookies for the awesome translation*

  70. This just breaks my heart. Sun trying to commit suicide… T_T
    Good thing his brothers are doing all they can to prevent him.

  71. [Conspiracy Theory Alert!]
    Just to be clear, I have not read the actual novel, I do not know how this actually turns out or what Sun’s motivation for this self-hatred really is. The following is just my semi-rampant speculations on what’s going on here:
    Situation A: Price = Insanity
    Fairly obvious, it’s been stated as a known side-effect of Resurrection. However, Sun’s behaviour since waking up has been fairly linear; denial, shock, self-loathing/depression. It’s not Sheogorath-esque enough for me to believe he’s gone insane. (pardon my Elder Scrolls reference)
    Situation B: Price = Deafness OR No Cost
    So far Sun’s reactions since waking up have been rather… unresponsive towards what everyone else is saying. Normally, he would not act so readily against a direct order from the Judgement Knight. This puts a point in favour of the deafness theory, but raises the question as to what could possibly motivate him to kill himself. I would like to point to his actions in volumes 1, 3, and 4: Primarily his encouraging Roland to turn into a death lord, and then refusing to kill him, while not attempting to do anything about Roland’s real obsession (which Pink actually did go ahead and state outright); Extortion, Torture, and the Kidnapping of Princess Alice, which would have provided satisfactory evidence to Roland that putting Sun in the position of Demon King was a bad idea, and would have helped solidify Pink’s hold over him; and his treatment of Ecilan and Chikus during his amnesia stint, which could have worked to further solidify Roland’s sense of duty. Furthermore, that last item involved Sun “harming a member of the 12 holy knights,” which is something he got Roland to swear never to do. Given that Grisia broke the rules of an oath he forced Roland to make, it could have allowed Roland to overlook his own sense of honour, and kill Sun.
    In a sense, it is Sun’s fault that Roland has taken on the role of the Demon King, even when Roland didn’t necessarily want to. Sun has had several opportunities to end Roland’s existence, but he has refused, which has harmed everyone in Leafbud city, including the 12 knight-captains, Roland most of all.

    So… Yeah. That’s my theory, at least until the next chapter is uploaded.

  72. in the extra chapter of vol 6. didnt pink wanted sun’s body to make him an undead person? if its that so why did roland strike sun’s heart which is in contrary of pink’s orders and further more returned him to the 12 holy knights??
    if my theory is correct wouldnt it be that sun has ordered roland to kill him via psychic magic? since sun was already suicidal when he woke up, can it be that he is already suicidal at the time pink was murdering him?

  73. When is the next chapter coming out!! I want to read it already!! I had to read the April fools version so I want to get back on track!! Please and thank you!!

  74. In my opinion, i’m practically sure that sun and Roland exchanged soul when Roland pierced his heart. Because pink wanted sun’s body, but Roland gave it back to the 12 holy knight, plus Roland never laughted before and he didn’t talk much about unecessary details, but oddly after dropping sun’s body he did those like grisia would have and even gaved them a reason and a place for them to go and take revenge. If you look at the way the two of them act after grisia’s death and reviving i say i’m 90% certain that they switched at that time but that roland didn’t realise it yet

  75. Update update update update!!! Please I am begging you to please update I am literally pulling my hair out wait for an update(Okay not for real….but you know what i mean)!!!
