A Spoiler Synopsis on the Plot of Story
This is mostly a spoiler for those who want to read. It won’t spoil the main storyline, but actually tell what the story is like. In truth the Synopsis is like shit and crap and bullshit. You won’t get what gore, brutal, sadist, masochist, and etc stuff you’re going to read in this novel. This novel is mostly dark, it tends to recreate the MC’s heart, which also is a sort of trial for him(Not that will give him Divine Protection, but what will let him be qualified to get Divine Protection). The MC is kind-hearted, good natured, free living, oh don’t worry, when he snaps, 500+ people kick the buckets. He ain’t a wuss who whines like a pig in human clothing being butchered. This guy shoots, snipes, uses sword, hatchets(Japanese Ones) And kills and Kills and KILLS. Oh gawd, this story is too good!, though it is quite slow, OK, it is really slow, do read at your own risk of reading a slow story

    Thanks for the translations!

  2. ric3cak3s says:

    It’sssssssssssss amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing how did I not find this earlier?
    Much thanks to the translators

  3. faerro says:

    Ya, this series is awesome!

    Thanks Shikkaku and EnTruce!

  4. Jack says:

    Hello how do i read the chapters i am on android device using firefox and clicking on the volume names or the plus next to it does nothing.

  5. Rod says:

    Firstly the translation quality for this project is wonderful.
    The main plot is fairly good, but there is just too much drama and for those who like more action packed stuff that keeps you going, this novel is not that much of a good choice.
    I somehow read till chapter 50 but that was my limit. I am going to try another project now, anyways thanks for the translation.

    • Shikkaku says:

      Yeah the plot moves slowly but if you can, volume 5 is where shit truly hits the fan! And the series gets darker! If you enjoy such novels.

      • Villager-A says:

        uwa… this is the shit man,nice.
        I kinda like tragedy and such,as long as my fav character isnt dead or such its all good. I droped tate no yuusha

        • Villager-A says:

          (damn cant edit,im not done yet,posted by mistake*)
          cuz the author killed my waifu to protect the MC,yet most of the other minor char is still alive and healthy,fuxk -,-
          hope neither Lily nor Fiona will die til the end,or I will also drop this one.

          • EnTruce says:

            Nope they won’t they will be saved by harem armor, just like how Kurono is saved by plot armor

          • N says:

            Um I want to ask too why is this a tragedy? I hate tragedies but want a magic harem story…but tragedy is emotionally draining big time…does the MC die or a side companion die?

            I don’t want to read something that’s going to be a waste if the MC dies…?

  6. Random says:

    Thank You for your Hard work

  7. darknova says:

    Thanks for the translation. The “tragedy” tag is kinda unnerving though, feels like someone close to the MC will die. Will bookmark it anyway.

  8. Anonymous says:

    I just came upon this translation site. Great job and thanks for translating this novel!

  9. massive says:

    in the latest chapter the only word i can say to chrono is
    RIP Chrono-kun may your soul rest in peace
    (JK)(though he is not really dead)
    p.s chapter 27 : Aishiteru # 521

    • EnTruce says:

      Mate, read at your own risk, the novel is really slow, but yeah I just now started reading a novel that is even more slow that is : ATG.

      • Anonymous says:

        ATG is a rocket compared to this snail fest.
        Not only does this story takes forever to go somewhere, it also skips out on every single moment of character development in order to gleefully focus on the slice-of-life and mundane mediocrity.

        In ATG, the author knows what he tried to do.
        In this story? He had absolutely no idea. It’s a really disappointing story, considering the amount of effort went into building the setting. =/
        (but f*** me, the MC won’t stop going on tangents about things that do not matter. 70% of every chapter is nothing but padding..)

  10. arken says:

    the links starting from chapter 157 are showing as “page not found” . is it just me ? i can access upto chapter 156 just fine ><

  11. aby says:

    Why chaptaer 174-180 no page?

  12. Pmm says:

    For some odd reason, chapters 174-186 give me page not found. And while I could go read the new updates, I don’t like skipping parts of a great story. Thanks for updating Koro no Maou though.

    • EnTruce says:

      Now all the chapters are updated. Seriously took my 15 minutes and somewhat more, and now my body is hurting even more. So, yeah…..go ahead and binge read it!

  13. mimo krokodil says:

    Really good novel. Thanks for hard work!

  14. Omar says:

    Thanks for the release. Took me about 2 weeks to catch up crom ch 1, couldn’t put my phone down. Awesome job so far keep it up.

  15. Horek says:

    63 chapter good. Lili evil/ Good. Uhahahaha.

  16. 4 Pencils says:

    Heya, is this really on going…?

  17. meat_bun says:

    no donation no chapter coming..truly misfortune

  18. Keyleth says:

    Someone should update this page… The trad is already up to chapter 245 on entruce.wordpress (the translator’s blog)

  19. Anonymous says:

    So I’m about 150 or so chapters in. This novel is so much crap. Seriously I’ve never seen such a masochistic story. I figure I’ll read one more volume. if the story doesn’t have a change in tragic and absolute failure as it’s running gag after that I’ll quit reading.

    • EnTruce says:

      Well the story changes the tragic part after 200 chapters, so try to read till there. and after the true harem starts.
      moreover, at least be thankful that this much sadist stuff to MC gives him a reason to not give a fuck on killing people later.
      At least he doesn’t become asshole like xianxia MC’s for nor reason.
      However, you will have to read till the latest raws for knowing what I just talked about.

  20. Anonymous says:

    Is Kuro no Maou droppt?

    Is there no fix schedule for new chapter?

    I can´t wait to read more. I don´t want to beg for quicker release, but i hope there will be soon a fix schedule.

    • EnTruce says:

      Oh sorry, I haven’t updated it here, tbh the latest TL’ed chapter is 265.
      And did you like story finally? Or maybe it was someone else who hated it?
      Anyhow, I will update it ASAP. For the time being, read on my WP. (bad news, it doesn’t has next chapter | previous chapter links)

  21. Anonymous says:

    It was someone else.

    I like the story. Maybe it is a litte bit frustrating that the MC is naive in love matters.

    Anyhow, thanks for your reply and your hard work!

  22. DDark says:

    Love that spoiler synopsis, made me want to start reading right away.

  23. Daemod says:

    So, wait, has this been dropped?
