“Ohh? Never thought that she’d bud this quickly.”

As he saw through the screen that the thing he sent just the other day had already become a member of the Divine Race, he laughed.

It was originally just a way to kill time. No, even now, it was still basically the case.
It had all started when he had noticed by chance some faith that was floating around in a low-ranked world based on stories. It was faith towards his type, so he had considered devouring it, but following an idea he came up with on a whim, he sent in a something that seemed suitable as a vessel, and decided to watch and see how things unfolded. If things went well, it would mean the birth of a new member of his kin, while if things failed, it wouldn’t be any real loss.

“It was pretty fun watching the process. Sending her in as a human was the right choice, huh.”

She might have gathered faith faster had she been sent in as an apostle, but he decided to just cram skills into her as a human and enjoy watching the show. Honestly speaking, he had crammed enough into her that it wouldn’t have been strange for her soul to collapse, but you could say it turned out well because she was good material.
When he had spotted that girl in a high ranking world, he had unconsciously sighed in wonder. It wasn’t often that you’d find a human with eyes close to his kind’s.

“Now that a new administrator has been born, the other divines probably won’t stay quiet. I’m really interested to see what happens next.”

There were originally two administrators in that world.
They would very soon know that a new administrator had been born. No, there was also the chance that they already knew. It was impossible to ignore a new administrator being born in the world they administrated, so it made sense that they would soon approach her somehow.
And because there were many cases where members of his type were hated by others, so to begin with there was definitely no way things would happen peacefully.
The world would probably be wrapped up in a power struggle between fellow divines.

“Aahh, I’m looking forward to it. So looking forward to it.”

Power struggle though it might be, in the end it was just something that would happen in a low-ranked world, so even if it was something that involved his kin, he didn’t plan on interfering.
Even if she was destroyed in defeat, that was just how it was. Just one favourite toy being broken.
It was all for his amusement, just simply killing time.
But it was also the truth that it seemed like things would be quite fun this time.
It was all thanks to the ‘beloved daughter'[thing] that he had sent in. It was just a random idea he had come up with, but once he gave it a go, it had turned out to be the right choice.

“Aahh, I’m really glad that I created you.”

As he saw through the screen his kin writhing around like a caterpillar as she had her legs poked by the people there, he laughed.

“If you manage to seize the power from the other two, maybe I’ll give you a reward.”

TL: In Japanese, ‘laugh’ and one way of saying ‘sneer’ are the same. 笑う and 嗤う are both read as  ‘warau’, so in the second last line, I wrote ‘laughed’ to keep the repeat sounding good. In truth, it’s more like he laughed in ridicule. I made this decision because she obviously meant for the two lines to parallel each other. Had she wanted to strongly emphasise sneering, I think she would’ve used 嘲笑う(azawarau) or something.

  1. soo~~, the gods have ranks? And this evil god can mess around with that world and others? This is getting crazy! And then they even have division among the divine race like light gods, dark gods, evul gods?

  2. Wow. I did not see that twist coming. To think that it really was an Evil God that sent her and not the God of Darkness which they were convinced to have been the true culprit, I guess no one could have seen that coming. I guess there is reason why they say that you shouldn’t second guess, and I feel so stupid for subconsciously only thinking there were 2 worlds.

    Also, thank you, Your Holiness. These releases had my happiness reach divine level as well, but I hope that you didn’t push yourself too hard. I wish you health and prosperity, and I thank you for this evilly divine gift.

  8. Seriously I’ve been feeling guilty because I’ve been leeching off your translations too much since I discovered it. 😢 I’ve already read kenkyuu, otoburi, second life, and then this. (I just discovered oniichanyamete this week ^^; ) Am forever grateful for letting me read your precious translations Grand arbiter-sama!! 😄 (the novels you pick up are all very good!
