Chapter 461 – Village Five’s Sole Ninja, Nana Foguma (Finale)

Three days after the Big Tree Village’s children have returned.

Village chief came to Village Five.

It seems like he’ll work in Village Five because of the children’s issue.

Thank you for doing so.

I’m also truly grateful for your generous heart for forgiving and being tolerant of the issue.

Yes.

I should have moved more regardless of being a spy.

I will not make the same failure.

Today, I will be village chief’s guide.

My best regards.

Though it was sudden, the influential people of Village Five have been gathered at the meeting room of the mansion.

They are there to apologize to village chief.

There are five substitutes but it can’t be helped since the people they are representing fell ill.

You don’t need to worry about them.

Plague?

No, it is not.

Their stomach has just been very weak lately.

I won’t tell this to village chief but his visit probably made them worse.

I pray for their recovery.

So, what are you planning?

Yeah, the influential people of Village Five are already in the meeting room….are you going to meet them now?

Understood.

Change clothes…do you want to?

Understood.

Village chief did not come alone.

He has two companions.

Gulf-sama and Ruincia-sama.

He was stopped by Ruincia-sama.

「Village chief, it is rude to greet them in your everyday clothes, get dressed.」

Ruincia-sama’s opinion was accepted by village chief so he changed clothes.

……

I know that Gulf-sama is an escort but why is the vice chief of the angels accompanying him?

I’ve met her several times in Big Tree Village but….

I wonder what village chief is thinking….

Village chief, who changed his clothes, followed Youko-sama and met the influential people of Village Five.

His generous words relieve the influential people of Village Five.

Those who have come as representatives are even weeping.

It can’t be helped.

The influential people of Village Five are powerful because they are in Village Five.

They were accepted and entrusted with by Village Five.

Especially those who were given permission to sell alcohol and manufacture miso, soy sauce, and mayonnaise are very afraid of upsetting village chief.

The children incident was a great event that rocked Village Five.

Of course, there are also influential people of Village Five that were not involved in that incident.

There is no way for people who don’t have young children to get involved.

However, that doesn’t mean that they won’t attend this meeting.

Even if they are not related, they have come to appeal.

It seems that they were thinking that this is a chance to be remembered by village chief but….that won’t happen.

He just said hello to them and that’s it.

Today’s village chief is not very village chief-like.

The usual village chief likes to repeat his words in another phrase but today, he said very few words.

When he showed up, he just apologized.

And encourage them.

That’s it.

「This one’s children have troubled you.」

Normally, he would say a few more words but he didn’t.

….

What a kingly behavior!

It’s not a bad thing.

That change is very much welcome desu.

After greeting the influential people, Village chief moved to the village hall with Youko-sama, Ruincia-sama, and Gulf-sama.

The influential people came with them too.

A Village Five’s influential people, they also join the village council at the village hall most of the time.

Most village councilors are already waiting at the village hall.

They were informed beforehand that village chief will be coming.

The village council has always recognized village chief as someone above Youko-sama.

And Youko-sama also always says that she’s under village chief.

It seems like the council and Youko-sama have been cooperating in telling everyone that the lord is village chief and Youko-sama is only his minister.

It is publicized too but it is important to show that attitude.

There are some councilors and influential people of Village Five that think it is better to follow Youko-sama.

Looking at village chief sitting in the best seat in the village hall and Youko-sama sitting on the acting village chief chair next to him, they should change their attitude….eh?

A little girl walked up to village chief.

For a moment, I thought she was a suspicious person so I put my hand on the handle of my sword but I was wrong.

She is Youko-sama’s daughter, Hitoe-sama.

Hitoe requested village chief to hold her and village chief did.

While he is holding Hitoe, Youko-sama smiles.

…..

T-this is intense.

This is an official occasion. It’s a breach of manner if you touch someone else’s children without permission from the parent.

Moreover, holding the child is over the top.

You can only do that to your own child.

In other words, though no one has heard about village chief and Youko-sama getting married, they will judge that they are after seeing this.

It is the same as saying that village chief and Youko-sama are united in both body and mind.

Ruincia-sama is at the place where Hitoe-sama came from.

Is this her plan?

Seeing village chief holding Hitoe, a part of the village hall became noisy.

The ones who are noisy are….those who hardly know about village chief.

They have investigated him several times.

I’ll share information about village chief with them later.

Since Youko-sama is single, some of them even planned to be her groom.

I wonder if they haven’t given up yet.

I hope this will make them give up.

I’ll check for the time being.

I have to find out if they have problematic behavior.

After that, village chief continued to act with Youko-sama and Hitoe-sama.

Village chief was only in Village Five for three days but his existence stood out before he returned.

I’m glad that I was able to serve him.

After that, a difficult time has come.

A large number of wedding gifts were delivered to Youko-sama’s residence.

Enough to fill a big room.

Not only that we have to receive those items, we also have to record who and what we got from them.

It is troublesome work.

I know.

I’ll help you.

I’ll help Youko-sama.

「You’re not married to village chief, right? Can you really receive these wedding gifts?」

Youko-sama replied saying there’s no problem.

…..

No way?

「Hahahahaha. I only have one husband, Hitoe’s father. These are their wedding gifts for us.」

I see.

「Maa, the vice chief of the angels recommended me to receive them in form.」

……

Areh, Youko-sama?

What did you say after?

What is your response to her recommendation?

Don’t answer with a laugh.

    Little Willie asked his mother: “Mamma, don’t soldiers ever go to heaven?”
    “Of course they do!” protested his mother. “What makes you ask?”
    “There are so many soldiers with beards but I never saw any pictures of angels with beards.”
    “Oh, that’s because most men who go to Heaven get there by a close shave.”

    1. lycopene322

      They wer having close shave in the funeral parlor. Hahahaha

    2. XsaluteZero

      Thank for the chapter ^^

      Don’t understand this joke, someone explain it please ^^;

      1. Vister1

        ‘A close shave’ is another way of saying ‘you barely made it’ or ‘a close call’. Razors are traditionally really close to your skin and can even cut you. A proper close shave cuts your hair off without cutting your skin…just barely. That’s why it wound up with these alternate meanings. Heaven is supposed to be entered by those who live a decent, moral life. Honestly repenting your sins and praying for forgiveness. Accumulating a large amount of sin and not being truly repentant can lead you to being damned to hell. The joke is saying most people barely reach the standard required to enter heaven and thus get into heaven just barely. It just uses a play on words to explain why angels are often depicted clean shaven lol.

      2. lazygeko

        It is a play on a saying in english. “By a close shave” ; A narrow escape from or avoidance of a situation, often an unfavorable or dangerous one. I had a close shave this morning when a tractor trailer unexpectedly swerved into my lane. (https://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/a+close+shave)

        So the joke is a pun between shaving and most men being barely qualified to get in.

  2. lycopene322

    This is too much to handle scenario. I think my stomach was ill also by having the village five common sense.. hahaha.
    So thats the gist of the story. The reason why those influential people are so afraid they will loos ahold a foothold of recognotion from Youko and VC just because of miso, mayo and etc. This ingredients will be surely had so much value politically. I wonder how.much they will grab the political world of the whole world using that

  3. otakukamikazes

    Thank you very much for the chapter.
    I really love this kind of chapters from a different person point of view.

  4. dicky satria

    lel , youko you sly , to prevent for marriage partner you pretend to be wedded to Hiraku

  5. God

    I’m totally fine with Village Chief giving Hitoe a younger sibling. ;}

  6. Kid Goku

    I thought hitoe was her offspring like part of her body or something

    1. Soul

      That’s what I understood too. It should be an off-shoot of herself like Tomoe from Tsuki ga Michi making Komoe and going by kyuubi lore. Anyway Hitoe is like an adopted daughter of Hiraku’s now anyway.

      “About a hundred years ago, I tried having a child for fun.

      That child is my other half but I didn’t think that she was important.

      However, I won’t be so heartless of throwing her away so I entrusted her to a nearby human village.

      The price is my divine protection.

      It might be too generous of a reward.

      Since then, I had this habit of meeting my child once a year.

      It was troublesome but it doesn’t feel bad.

      Also, the village where I left her, they started worshipping me and my child.” – Chapter 278

  7. Nazarick underman

    Who is Yoko ‘s husband ?

    1. Soul

      I think that she’s saying it as a joke just so she can avoid troublesome things. The husband (father of Hitoe) and marriage are both lies that Youko uses for her convenience.

      Hitoe should be her other-half like an offshoot of a nine tails.

  8. sense-san

    The Village Chief title is turning out to be an Emperor equivalant with how this is going.

  9. Shino

    「Maa, the vice chief of the angels recommended me to receive them in form.」

    i don’t understand this part, can someone explain it to me, pls?
    Did Ruincia suggest Youko to marry the Village Chief?

    1. Elite4Harmon

      She was just told to receive those gift as it is.

      1. Shino

        Ohh, i see
        Thankyou for explaining it, oyabun

    2. Chris Sizemore

      Ruincia intentionally created the misunderstanding and Youko has agreed to play along with it because it is convenient for her. Also… Youko might decide to visit VC’s room sometime. She has enough standing in the village to get past the Wall of Wives.

      1. Shino

        that’s a great idea

  10. Zax

    Youko totally fine with that misunderstanding. Thanks for the chapter

  11. Lamora_R2

    Thanks for the chapter!

    I think Youko is playing the long game with VC,

    1. Brian

      I dont think she minds either way.

  12. Alterator

    Youko is ok with that misunderstanding. Her being a widow – i think no one would mind if she joined the mistress club. Cause let’s be honest she and Hiraku get along pretty well.
    I’d go as far as to say that it is bound to happen at some point.

    1. Yanto Sonata

      after all . . .she is also has tasted one of the VC wife’s has experienced before on their first meeting . . . (being pierced by his spear)

  13. Leave a Reply

    The politic and propaganda are strong in this chapter. LMAO

  14. Lâm Quân

    “Isn’t saying it directly enough?

    Or do they think that they won’t be able to convince me with mere words?”

    Yes, because you’re an idiot who doesn’t learn his lessons. There’s already the incident where you apologized to the Titans and made Rasuti and Hakuren feel bad, but now it’s like you have absolutely no memory of that incident. Telling you directly may prevent you from doing it this one time but if they can’t get you to UNDERSTAND and EMBED it into your mind, you’ll just repeat your mistakes in the future.

    Fluffy waifus are the best.

  16. Flrncitly06
