“Phew, this is refreshing~”

I’m currently enjoying a bath with Sui and Dora-chan.

““Baths are great~””

““Feels really nice~~””

[5] I’m so glad that I could enjoy baths every day. [2] Right now, I’m enjoying a bath with special Yuzu scented carbonated bath salts from my bath salts collection.

The special properties of yuzu include warming your body and revitalising your soul. [1] Also, the scent is really nice~~

““Time to sleep~”” [9] yawned the little dragon.


““Goodnight, Aruji~~”” [9] Sui’s voice sounded warm and bubbly after the bath.

I trailed after my smaller familiars to the master bedroom where Fer had nested inside his special extra-large futons laid out on the extra fluffy carpet.

After rooming together on the first day, I thought we should get separate rooms for ourselves but we ended up staying in this one room together. [5]

It’s becoming difficult to suggest staying in separate rooms especially when Sui would often say, “Aruji~~ let’s sleep together~~” in that cute way of hers. Making it difficult for me to object to her cuteness.

I guess… it’s fine to leave things as they are?

Although it did feel like I’m wasting the other 13 rooms…


Anyway, let’s not think about it anymore. I still have a self-imposed duty before going to bed. An offering to Demiurgos-sama needed to be made!

“Now then, what drink should I offer today?” [5]

“Oho~~ they are doing something different this time, eh?” 


Tanaka Liquor Shop was doing a special feature today:


Sake Tasting Sets

Buy a set of three Japanese saké from either Junmai Daiginjo, Ginjo or Honjo category for your tasting pleasure.


As the name suggested, it’s a set of three that you can drink and compare. [2] Hmm, looks interesting. Also, since Demiurgos-sama likes saké, this would make the perfect offering. After studying the promoted saké for a while, I settled on a set of three Junmai Daiginjo from the Yamagata prefecture.

Naturally, I bought the set based on the reviews.



The first bottle:

Won the best liquor category at a global level competition.

Moreover, the company only limits production to three times a year.


The second bottle:

Produced by a Yamagata brewery that only makes Junmai Daiginjo.

A light-tasting sake brewed with local Yamagata brewer’s rice, the Dewa Sansan (Brilliant Dewa).

The third bottle:

Served in first-class cabin flights.

Enjoy the same luxurious experience in your own home.


This set of three appeared to be quite popular since it was filled with reviews like:

‘…all three are easy to drink and delicious’

‘…it’s too delicious, it all disappeared too quickly!’

‘…luxurious tasting set’

‘…enjoyed comparing the best of Yamagata’


Yes, I do believe Demiurgos-sama would enjoy this.

After checking these into the cart, I browse through the Day’s Recommendation for the first time in a while. [5]

“Hm? Rum?”

The Day’s Recommendation for today was rum. [2] Moreover, it’s locally produced rum! Wow, and here I thought rum was a foreign product. 

According to the descriptions, Japan first began the manufacturing of rum back in 1979 in Tokunoshima, Kagoshima prefecture. Since rum is made from the by-product of sugar canes, it’s generally produced in southern areas like Okinawa and Kagoshima. [5]

It turns out that Japanese rum is quite highly evaluated in recent years. Some even won prizes at international competitions. The one recommended by the Manager was a rum made in Minamidaito Island within the Okinawa Prefecture. An additive-free, colouring free rum made with sugar canes grown in the same area.

Although rum generally has a very high alcoholic content, it’s recommended to drink this rum at 25% ABV (alcohol by volume). This rum is known to be easy to drink even for people who are not familiar with rum.

Moreover, it has a light, pleasant sweetness and aroma. It is recommended that you dilute it with water or serve it on the rocks.

“This one looks good too. It was wine last week and rum today, huh. Naturally, one must have alcohol snacks to go with the alcohol…”

Since Demiurgos-sama seemed to enjoy the premium canned goods set, I got another for him. This time, I chose cans that contained a good balance of western and Japanese style snacks. [5]

With that done, I checked out the items in the cart and set up my offering cardboard box. [5]

“Demiurgos-sama, please accept my humble offerings.”

“Oooh, it’s here, it’s here! I’ve been looking forward to these little treats lately~”

Demiurgos-sama sounded happy. [5]

“In addition to sake, [5] I’ve also included rum. It’s a fairly strong drink so please dilute it with ice water or serve it with ice before drinking.”

“I see, I look forward to trying it. That fruit drink, wine was it? Was really delicious too. It’s delicious with the cheese and meat.” [5]

[6] “I’m glad you enjoy it, Demiurgos-sama,”

“Oh yes, [5] I should tell you that their house arrest would be lifted soon. So, I’m afraid you will soon be contacted by certain gods and goddesses demanding offerings. However, I’d already warned them not to go overboard. If they make things difficult for you, let me know.”

“I shall do so,”

“The Divine world may be heavenly but there is nothing truly stimulating or interesting here. Even divine beings need something to look forward to. They aren’t bad but they might be… a bit too enthusiastic sometimes. So, please, do treat them kindly. Consider it my request.”

I supposed from the perspective of Demiurgos-sama, these divine beings might as well be his children, [6] especially if he’s the one responsible for creating them… So, I kind of get where he’s coming from. It’s not like I’m not moved by his request either…

“I understand. It does get a bit annoying when they try to push their luck but I don’t dislike them. Moreover, I have received their Blessings and I don’t mind the weekly offerings.” Also, if they annoy me too much, I can always make them take their Blessings back and cut off their supply of Other World goods.

“I’m grateful for your tolerance. Still, do speak to me first if they happen to cross the line. I shall discipline them directly, fuoh, fuoh, fuoh,”

“Hahaha, yes, I shall make sure to report any bad behaviour.”

Then, the offerings on the cardboard box disappeared with a faint light.

“So, their house arrest is coming to an end… well, it’s been a while, so I bet there will be plenty of orders coming soon.”

I wonder, what our reunion will be like?


[Gumihou: Deleted two paragraphs of the ending since it’s kind of meandering and pointless…]


[1] Structural Change: Combine 2 paragraphs

[2] Structural Change: Combine 3 paragraphs

[3] Structural Change: Combine paragraph & dialogue

[4] Structural Change: Change passive sentence to dialogue 

[5] Delete Repetitive or Pointless Information

[6] Additional Information for Aesthetic Purpose

[7] Add Dialogue Tag

[8] Creative Licence Taken

[9] After bath dialogues: Author is experimenting with more interactive dialogues but they are kind of flat, so redid it a little.

[10] Unclear and flat writing, redid it.

Tanaka Liquor Shop was doing a special feature today, [9] comparing different types of Japanese drinks. [1] Today’s promotion was a set of local variety of saké under the same brand promoting their Junmai Daiginjo, Ginjo and Honjo saké.

    Hahaha can’t wait to see how deprived the gods and goddesses are thank you very much for the chapter!! I really appreciate the amount of work y’all put into each one also special thanks for the structural changes it truly makes the chapters much more fun to read! Looking forward to next week!

    1. Gumihou

      Lol, the original form of the chapters were like children with mismatched clothes, one shoe on and gum in their hair. Had to grab ’em and groom ’em first before letting them terrorize the public.

  2. Kassag

    I imagine those deprived gods going all “Precious, give us precious! My precious!!”

    1. Gumihou

      They’re certainly deprived as well as depraved by now

  3. Philip

    So, soon the annoying ones will be released. I hope they will start acting in a more proper way, they are supposed to be gods. Then again, at least they don’t act like in the Greek myths.
    Thanks for the second chapter this week! Awesome translation as always! May God bless you!

    1. Gumihou

      Lol, the gods and goddesses from the Greek and Roman era are probably no better

      1. Philip

        Yeah. I remember a joke that’s pretty much truth about the Greek myth. Most of the problems and monsters are due to Zeus getting too thirsty.
