I will temporarily translate both “It’s Impossible that My Evil Overlord is So Cute” and “Starchild Escapes Arranged Marriage”… as fast as I can, till the current condition changes. At that time, I will hand over one of the novels to other translators. Maybe after two months.…Read More »
I have bad news for you all. Cherry will be working on another novel from now on so I intend to take over “Starchild Escapes Arranged Marriage”. However, I can’t translate “Starchild Escapes Arranged Marriage” and “It’s Impossible that My Evil Overlord is So Cute” at the same time. That would take me too much time. Therefore, there must be a choice made. Which one do you guys want me to translate? The result will depend on your comments.

Chapter 82: Flowers, Girls, and the Guardian Shield (10)
Konoe Syuushi was one of the guards at Kanishino Girl’s High School. Today, he got a headache – Including him, it seemed that every guard had lost a part of their memories.
“Was it because someone sneaked into the school and erased our memories?” He murmured as he walked along his patrol route.
Immediately, he laughed and said to himself, “How it possible? This is the real world, not a novel or game.”
The next moment, a hand reached out from the tree behind him and tightly gripped his neck. Soon afterwards, he fainted due to hypoxia… It seemed that he would lose another piece of his memory.
“Whoa! You did it again! And you were not using ‘wrestling’!”
Sakurakouji muttered. She had followed Xu Shenxing and saw everything he did.
“No problem. I have let the spirit ghosts fly to the sky to overlook this area. After we finish clearing this patrol point, nothing ahead will stop us.” Xu Shenxing dragged the guard into the bush and stripped off the guard’s uniform.
“Geeee! Kamisama!” Sakurakouji blushed. She covered her eyes with her hands, then opened her eyes wide, peeping at Xu Shenxing through her fingers. “E-even if you’re not picky, but I don’t think that this guy is a good choice as your male companion…”
“Nope. I just think that this guy’s size is about my size. It should be no problem to wear his uniform to pretend to be a guard for me.”
“Why do you look so disappointed?”
“I-i-i-i-i-illusion! It’s just your imagination!”
“Nah. Never mind… Anyway, I’m going to take off my clothes. Can you please turn around?”
“Why’re you so disgruntled…”
As they talked, maybe due to the cold air, naked Konoe Syuushi sneezed and woke up. In the next moment, he saw that a strange man was squatting in front of him and going to strip off his clothes.
Before he screamed with fear, Xu Shenxing had punched his stomach. He rolled his eyes and fainted again.
“Why’re you so skillful…”
“Because I have done such things many times…” Xu Shenxing recalled his past. At that time, he was still at the age of a high school student. In the other world, he and his partners had sneaked into the evil overlord’s territory, and due to lack of experience, he had instantly exposed his identity. Finally, him and his partners had to defeat the demon army there, making their stealth attempt become a great war of recovering the lost Human Alliance territory.
Incidentally, the part Xu Shenxing missed the most was that he still had had thick hair at that time.
“By the way, Sakurakouji, aren’t you a student here? Why did you sneak into the school with me?”
“Isn’t it the miko’s responsibility to follow her god?” The girl …Read More »
Chapter 81: Flowers, Girls, and the Guardian Shield (9)
After leaving the classroom block, Chihaya found herself with nothing special to do. It was time for the noble students to have their afternoon tea and most of the civilian students would be taking part in club activities or reviewing their lessons at this time.
As for the noble students, some of them were also taking part in club activities, whilst others were holding the tea party in the school backyard .
As a civilian student, Chihaya didn’t want to take part in the noble students’ tea party – Of course, if she wanted to attend, the members of the tea party would be glad to see her arrival.
Therefore, she walked to the school cortile, then saw several lower grade students circling around a tree and worriedly looking upwards at the tree. As she was free now, Chihaya walked over to them and also looked up at the tree.
Soon afterwards, she understood what these children were looking at. A white kitten was lying on the end of a tree branch. In front of it, there was a green snake winding around the root of the branch and hissing at it.
The kitten was so scared that it didn’t dare to jump off the tree. If the situation continued like this, the kitten would be eaten by the snake.
Those children circling around the tree were trying to save the kitten, but none of them knew how to climb the tree. Besides, they were afraid of the snake.
“Didn’t Nanako go call the teachers? Haven’t any teachers come yet?”
“Where are the guards? Why don’t they come here to patrol? When we need them, we just can’t see any of them!”
“What should we do? Should we go to the Physical Education Office to take a cushion and place it under the kitten?”
Eventually, they were only chattering like a flock of sparrows but made no progress. The kitten was scared and hissed even more, but the snake was unaffected and kept crawling towards it.
Chihaya looked at the white kitten with pity, but she just lowered her head and was going to leave the cortile because she didn’t know how to climb the tree either. She could offer no help. Besides, when she was a child, she was once bullied by other children. The weak will stand as easy prey to the strong. She knew the meaning of this proverb better than the noble students who lived like flowers in a greenhouse.
Just then, she felt someone pulling the corner of her clothes. She turned back, then saw the girl named Moli standing behind her.
“Do you want to save the kitten?” The little girl asked and looked up at her with a straight face.
The afternoon sunlight shone on the cortile. The little girl’s smooth skin reflected the sunlight, making her, whose body …Read More »

Sakurakouji cried until she was so tired that she fell asleep. Xu Shenxing gently lay her down on the old couch in the shrine.
Xu Shenxing looked at the umbrella-shaped crayon drawing on the back of the couch, where two names, “Inochi Sama” and “Asahi”, were written on the both besides of the umbrella pattern. He couldn’t help but softly stroke the girl’s hair.
The girl felt his touch. She turned over and softly murmured, “Don’t leave me alone, Inochi Sama…”
“Well, it really gives me a headache,” Xu Shenxing scratched his face, then looked around the shrine again.
If he had to describe it, the shrine gave him a feeling that it looked like a sweet little home and was filled with the breath of life. He could see the traces of the god Yakumo Inochi everywhere.
If Sakurakouji kept staying here, it wouldn’t be a surprise she would feel very depressed everyday.
Should he help the girl by erasing her memories?
A few days ago, because he was going to travel aboard, he asked Qin Xingyan to make some taoist scrolls that he might need. One of them could be used to erase ordinary people’s memory – after all, Xu Shenxing’s own method to erase memories were too violent. If he carelessly made his “The Method to Erase the Memories” become “The Method to Breaking the Neck”, it would cause a great problem…
Xu Shenxing looked around the room again, then dismissed this idea. Although it was a painful memory for Sakurakouji Asahi, it was also a misfortune everyone would meet during their lifetime – the death of their parents. No matter how painful and sad it was, Xu Shenxing still couldn’t allow himself to erase other people’s memories about their parents. It added up bit by bit from people’s childhoods, and were the most precious memories in their lives.
“…Should I try to see if I can get through to my father’s phone later? Although the International call fee was very expensive.” Xu Shenxing walked to the backyard of the shrine as he complained about the expensive call fee.
In the corner of the backyard, there was a well.
There were ropes circling around the well with gohei papers and scrolls wrapped on them. To be honest, it looked pretty much like the scene from the movie “Ringu”.
However, Xu Shenxing didn’t mind it at all. He stepped over the ropes and walked over to the edge of the well. There were several ropes wrapped together on the wellhead and twisted into one rope, hanging down into the well.
He looked down and saw a bucket in the well, and there was an earthen-yellow jade seal in the bucket. Xu Shenxing pulled up the bucket from the well, then picked up the jade seal from inside it. It should be the “Suppress …Read More »

Himesaki Mizuki was in love.
Miyama Chihaya believed that if she told other people this news, it would definitely cause a stir amongst her schoolmates. Despite what other people thought, she knew the girl in front of her would certainly not accept this.
The girl was petite. Although she was a senior 2 student, even if she claimed that she was a junior school student, her appearance wouldn’t give people a weird feeling. She wore a lovely pink headband which did not seem to suit her lively temperament very much. The gray hair on her temples were slightly cocked which looked like drooping ears, and due to this, other students also called her “puppy-chan”.
Her name was Goyo Sumire. She was the current chairwoman of the student council of the Kanishino Girl’s High School.
At the same time, she was also the chairwoman of the unofficial organization “Himesaki Sama’s Fan Club”. Incidentally, this unofficial organization was even larger than the school council.
Because of this, Goyo Sumire held amazing power in the school, and naturally became the chairwoman of the student council after Miyama Chihaya and Himesaki Mizuki gave up the position.
“The reason why I want to become the chairwoman is only for one goal – to protect Himesaki Sama’s school life!”
Including Chihaya, many students also had a deep impression of her declaration, which she stated at the swearing-in ceremony of the student council.
By the way, after that, the number of the members of “Himesaki Sama’s Fan Club” increased again…
Disregarding her passionate obsession of Himesaki Mizuki, Goyo Sumire was no doubt a qualified chairwoman. As a noble school, the Kanishino Girl’s High School had adequate funding, and every school club could obtain a considerable sum for their budget. But also due to this, the student council had to deal with many affairs. It needed them to spend a lot of manpower and energy to check various club expenses.
However, after Goyo Sumire took office, she handled and arranged those affairs in quite an orderly manner. Under her leadership, the members of the student council (expect for the two vice chairwomen) were also very energetic. They were even once called “puppy-chan’s vicious dogs” by the other students.
Occasionally, Goyo Sumire boasted to others that she wanted to work for Himesaki Mizuki after she graduated. If one viewed just her outstanding abilities, it was not an impossible hope.
By the way, if Sumire’s father heard about her desire, he would definitely cry out. Although her family business couldn’t compare to a top syndicate like the Himesaki Syndicate, her father had formed the Goyo Transport Company from nothing, and the company was already excellent amongst all the second-tier companies in Japan.
“Miyama Sen-pai, your hands just stopped.”
Because Goyo Sumire was so obsessed with Himesaki Mizuki, she didn’t treat Chihaya very enthusiastically, but treated her …Read More »

Xu Shenxing and Sakurakouji Asahi were walking on the path leading to White Bell Shrine.
Sakurakouji Asahi walked ahead to lead the way. She looked back at Xu Shenxing several times and tried to say something, but finally gave up.
Looking at Sakurakouji Asahi, Xu Shenxing sighed, then asked her in a cheerful tone, “Do you have anything you want to say to me?”
“Well… I remember you telling Mr Xu Feng that you would sneak into the school…”
“That’s what I’m doing. Aren’t we sneaking in without being detected?”
“No, no, no, that’s not the case,” Sakurakouji Asahi retorted with an air of resignation, “The students’ bodyguards had found you at the first moment you sneaked near the school. Then when you beat down all the bodyguards, the school security guards noticed the commotion and went to investigate it. After that, you simply knocked down all the guards, then climbed over the wall to enter the school!”
“As long as the students and the teachers don’t find us, it’s a success! There is no difference between ‘sneak into the school without being seen’ and ‘beat all the people who saw us down, then sneak into the school without being seen’!”
“I have said that you can’t call this ‘stealth’!”
“Don’t worry. I’ve ordered the spirit ghosts to erase their memories (physical means). After they wake up, they won’t remember anything!”
“That’s not the point!… Well, but I appreciate that you let me see the true meaning of ‘wrestle♂'.”
“Well, it seems that I have to reflect on how I sneaked in.”
They quarreled all the way till the White Bell Shrine.
Although it was a shrine, because Sakurakouji Asahi and the god she served lived here, regardless of the ropes, the bells, a money box, and a little shrine, the house was full of the breath of life – Xu Shenxing even saw a pair of girl’s underwear on the chair.
“What are you looking at?” The girl blushed. She hurriedly put the underwear away, which was obviously too baggy for her.
“Inochi Sama… Nah, why do you always put your clothes here and there?!”
Sakurakouji Asahi complained as she tidied up the room. She tried to pretend that she didn’t care about this, but her expression was clearly upset.
Xu Shenxing didn’t know how to comfort her. He sighed helplessly.
He turned around in a circle as he looked at the room. Maybe because there was dust everywhere on the mountain, Sakurakouji had only left the shrine for a week, but the house had accumulated a lot of dust. There were no traces that the dust having been touched by a human, which meant that no one had come here in the last week.
“Asahi, you deliberately did not put away the household items of the previous god… Is that because you hope that she will come back again?”
Sakurakouji froze. Her thin shoulders trembled slightly.…Read More »
Chapter 77: Flowers, Girls, and the Guardian Shield (5)
After experiencing the strange event on the tram, when Miyama Chihaya arrived at school, she found that the atmosphere in class was kind of strange.
In a word, her classmates were a bit restless.
She listened carefully, then heard some students mentioning the words “Himesaki”, “kidnapping”, and so on.
However, apart from Sakurakouji Asahi, she didn’t have any friends in class. Due to reverence, other students didn’t speak to her actively. Therefore, even though she cared about Himesaki Mizuki, she still didn’t know what was going on.
Although if she asked them, they’d love to tell her everything they knew, but she felt that would be troublesome, so she ended up saying nothing.
Soon afterwards, the teacher’s arrival made the students quieten down.
“First of all, I want to tell you all some good news. Sakurakouji Asahi has finally finished dealing with her family matters and will return to school tomorrow.” The teacher said with a smile. She put down her tablet computer on the teaching table and clapped her hands to draw all the students’ attention.
The teacher’s words generated a great deal of talk amongst the students. It seemed like everyone suddenly forgot their etiquette of being ladies.
This also proved how popular Asahi was in the hearts of other students (although she was a fujoshi).
“Hey, kittens. Do not continue to be noisy. Our morning meeting hasn’t finished yet.”
The teacher clapped her hands again. After the students had quieted down, she said, “There’s another thing I would like to announce – From today onwards, we’ll have one more lovely kitten in our class!”
According to the teacher’s language habit, did she mean that there would be a transfer student? Chihaya cupped her chin in her hand as she thought of this news in her heart, but didn’t really care about it.
Other students seemed to be very interested. They waited for the teacher to introduce the new student. The teacher looked around and found that everyone was interested. She smiled and said towards the direction of the door, “Xu Moli, you can come in.”
All the students in the classroom subconsciously looked at the door. They waited, but nothing happened.
“Ah… hum?” The teacher, embarrassed, pushed her glasses and said towards the door again, “Xu Moli?”
However, there was still no response outside the door. Therefore, she ignored the dress she was wearing and hurriedly ran towards the door. She opened the door, but found no one outside.
“Xu Moli? Where are you?!” The poor teacher cried like an office staff member who would deduct part of her pay.
After searching for a few minutes, finally, before the teacher broke down, she found Moli in the atrium and took her back to class.
“Although when I heard the name ‘Moli’, I’d guessed that she was the girl I saw before…” Chihaya looked at the golden-haired girl, who shamelessly said, “I lost myself on the road of life”. …Read More »
Chapter 76: Flowers, Girls, and the Guardian Shield (4)
A pale yellow Rolls-Royce Phantom car was driving quietly along the road.
Himesaki Mizuki lay on the leather backseat of the car and napped.
Although she was a boarder, she had begun to take over part of her family business and often went out to deal with all sorts of issues, and therefore, she occasionally needed to live outside. In this regard, the school turned a blind eye to this due to her family’s influence.
Last night, this “princess” of the Himesaki family attended a high society dinner. She had spoken with various merchants and politicians, and after leaving the dinner party, she had immediately taken a plane to Okinawa to negotiate with the representative of the Okura Syndicate, and then signed a series of cooperation contracts with them.
Finally, she boarded her family’s private plane and returned to White Bell City, then took the Rolls-Royce Phantom car back to school.
Despite the brief rest on the plane, she had hardly slept the whole night. However, she was already accustomed to this. After having agreed to her father’s requirements, she had gotten herself ready for this mentally.
The Himesaki family was a time-honored family in Japan. It is said that during the Shogunate period, the Himesaki family had staked a sizeable claim in Japanese businesses.
However, during the historical Showa period, businesses in Japan had an explosive growth, but the masters of Himesaki family at that time were all pedantic and inflexible old men, therefore this glorious old family started to fall into a decline.
Fortunately, Himesaki Mizuki’s father seized the family business abruptly and forced all the old men who seized the power of the family into nursing homes. After that, he consistently reformed the family’s business, and finally stabilized the family stopping them from declining.
Undoubtedly, as a man who did all of those things, Himesaki Mizuki’s father was a man who had an unbreakable will and cold blood. Once he made a decision, no one could shake his determination, including his only daughter Himesaki Mizuki.
At the same time, he was also one of the most standard businessmen.
“It’s OK to not want to marry, but you have to show the benefits above what I can get from marrying you to the heir of another family.”
Himesaki Mizuki would never forget her father’s eyes when he looked at her as if he was looking at goods. After that, that man, her father, turned over to her a small part of his family business. In order to respond to her father’s expectations, Himesaki Mizuki had to try her best to deal with these business affairs.
Hence, she became what she now was: the talented girl in the eyes of ordinary people, the distinguished talent recognized by the employees of her family, and the sister sama in the eyes of the students of the school.
“…Not enough.” Himesaki Mizuki sighed. She knew what she did wasn’t enough to satisfy …Read More »
