My Death Flags Show No Sign Of Ending – Chapter 116 (Part 2)

Hey everyone!

So I was waiting for the next chapter to come out to post this since the author said it might be in August, but it doesn’t seem like it’s gonna happen soon so I’ll just post this part now. Please read the note after the chapter to know how you can show your support to the author.

Anyway, here’s the chapter, I hope you’ll enjoy it!

Chapter 116 (Part 2)

【”Tangled up in something? Meaning?”】

【”When I went to visit again, that person had forgotten about being saved by you. Suddenly, the story became that they were attacked by monsters, fainted, and were carried to the hospital before they came to.”】

If that person’s memory was manipulated, it was probably through Justus’ doing.

However, Harold did not understand what would have been the meaning of doing that.

【”Ridiculous. I’m sure that person was just having hallucinations from being on the brink of death.”】

【”No way! That’s definitely not it!”】

【”What are you, a doctor? How would you know?”】

【”Because it was weird! That person didn’t just forget about being helped by you, that person completely forgot about the existence of Harold Stokes!”】

The problem was neither that the knight had a fuzzy memory nor a simple memory loss.

The knight had lost every memory regarding one single person. It was a strange occurrence.

Granted, maybe this could happen in nature in some outlying case, but, at least for Sid and Elen, it probably felt far too specific for Harold alone to be forgotten completely.

【”In the past, soon after you were sentenced to death, chief Cody told us “It’s not about whether you can believe  in Harold, but whether you can believe in yourselves”. But even though I thought you were innocent, I didn’t believe in myself…!”】

【”It was the same for me. Even though you words were always snide, I knew you weren’t a bad guy… But I didn’t act on those thoughts.”】

Their feelings of regret were transmitted more than well. Even under the dim light of the bar, the tears building up in their eyes were clear to see.

Though Robinson wasn’t here, he too was probably blaming himself for not believing in Harold’s innocence, just like his two comrades.

Harold had not spent much time in the knight order, but he knew these three friends were very kind.

Therefore, he took it upon himself to speak and try to convey something along the lines of “Don’t worry about it”.

【”No matter what angle I look at this from…. You’re utter morons.”】

【”W-what? We’re sincerely apologizing to you over here!”】

【”And that’s why I’m saying you’re morons. What exactly are you apologizing for?”】

【”Well, obviously it’s because we wanted to believe in you but-…”】

【”Alright, let’s imagine a world where you’d have declared my innocence loud and clear… What would that have changed? Do you seriously believe the likes of you could have done anything about that jury’s sentence?”】

Sid and Elen did not answer. They stayed quiet.

Even if they had intervened as they wished and gotten all the knights of the order to speak against Harold’s sentence, the results would have been the same.

After all, it had already been determined from the start, before any deliberation, that Harold would get the death penalty.

【”While I’m at it, I’ll let you in on something. The removal of that death sentence was always the plan. It was set up from the get go.”】


Sid and Elen reacted the way Harold wanted.

Of course, this was a lie.

The whole series of events after the battle in the Bertis forest had been completely out of his expectations.

But even so――

【”I’m still alive. Isn’t that proof enough for the dirt you have for brains?”】

Harold laughed with a mocking tone.

He laughed because he was used to dealing with problems this way.

He laughed to hide his heart-wrenching gratitude towards the kindness of these two comrades, who had been dealing with regrets for years, wanting to apologize to a lost cause like Harold Stokes.

He could only hide those feelings.

After all, ‘Harold Stokes’ would not show gratitude in such a situation.

And so, to reward their kindness, Harold used his usual method instead.

【”Heh, how laughably arrogant of you to assume you might have been able to change something back then.”】

【”Arrogant?! You’re the one person I don’t want to hear that from!”】

【”Being arrogant means putting on airs out of pride. Unlike you, I am not arrogant, I do not put on airs. I behave to the level of my abilities.”】

【”I’m pretty sure that manner of thinking is arrogant enough on its own.”】

Harold’s statement was arrogant indeed, and that meant everything was fine.

That meant there was no need to feel guilty.

Through his behavior, Harold was emphasizing on the fact that he was still the same, and that worrying about him was meaningless.

【”Damn it! Still as haughty and domineering as ever!”】

【”Haaa… Where are we going to pour all our pent up worries and regrets now…”】

【”At times like these, you gotta drink, Sid! Harold will take care of the tab!”】

【”Hey, what do you think you’re-…”】

【”I don’t care! You’re a noble, you should pay for these types of things like it’s nothing!”】

【”…That’s right! Alright, drinks are on Harold, today we’re gonna gorge ourselves all night!”】

【”…Don’t you have any shame?”】

Well, in all truth, Harold liked their current behavior better than those gloomy faces they’d been making earlier.

Given everything he had done to save their lives, the one thing he wanted in return was for them to live their lives with smiles.

The timing of this reunion worried him, but he still hoped they would somehow calmly go on with their lives without raising more death flags…

【”Oh, I forgot to tell you! Once we’re done with this mission, we’ll be getting married! Where should we send you the invitation?”】

【”I mean, we were your seniors at one point, you wouldn’t miss our wedding, would you~?”】

【”Are you kidding me? Shut your damn mouths.”】

Harold’s hostile words were not directed towards the marriage invitation.

Rather, if he had to say, it was directed at the act of getting married itself.

(『When this battle is over, let’s get married…』is one of the deadliest death flags there is! )

Apparently, Harold’s bad feeling was on point. 

In a certain sense, Ellen and Sid were just as loved by death flags as Harold himself.

Another issue had just mercilessly set itself upon Harold’s already full plate.

Translator’s note: So, as usual, here are the tweets to like.

This tweet is from a fan, not the author. It’s a handmade knit Harold Stokes and it looks really good ^^

Izumi-sensei’s response:

Now the author’s tweets:

Here’s a tweet where he’s sharing the latest chapter of the RAW of the manga

Here he’s answering one of you guys, a French fan, and basically saying he likes seeing that there are readers from all over the world

Here he says that he’s happy to see everyone’s support as he has been receiving a lot of tweets thanks to a lot of you going out of your way to show your support, and that’s awesome!
I also get mentioned on this one, which is pretty cool 😀

Anyway, that’s it for today! Hopefully the next chapter will come soon, I honestly have no information about it at the moment, but as soon as it comes out, you’ll now.

Have a wonderful week!

    the link to the raw manga is weird, it wont bring me to the My Death Flags manga but simply the homepage? and when i try and click on Death Flags or other manga it just refreshes the homepage

      1. Lordmaou97

        My No End Death Flags chapter 9 raw manga just updated
        But I still cannot read them online in mangabox and kept returning to homepage
        I think maybe it has to do with the latest update that make user need to download the app first
        But the app is not available in my country

      It isn’t broken, they just region blocked it.. so you’ll only be able to access it with VPN or if you’re in Japan. You can also use the MangaBox app. I heard that apparently too many oversea fans flooded the manga website that they had to set this region block up 😅
      If im not mistaken the raws currently already more than 9

      1. Sweetlord97

        I tried this advice
        Using vpn (proton vpn to be specific its free btw)
        And manage to read the raws
        The raws i read was at chapter 12 and really cant wait for chapter 13
        I got the same feels like reading the novel at chapter 12 😍👍

    Thanks for another chapter, and how I like to see this interaction with the author himself, someone who is literally on the other side of the world for me, but I can still appreciate his work, and even communicate and see that my support can reach him, so thanks again Defiring, it’s not just a translation, it’s about influencing lives ..

    Great chapter. Side characters sure need Harold to save them from their death flags, come on he’s got tons of his own. I mean the title itself is a death flag. At this rate Erica is gonna slaughter him with a laser beam and later contemplate why did he hold back…. Did he hated me so much that he rather die by my hands then live on his own ?

      Eso suena tan real… Si harold tiene una dulcura punzante(tsun deré)… Me da mucha risa como erika por su culpa tenga esa deriva tipo yandere, de hecho la batalla contra el grupo del héroe me dio mucha risa(aunque se supone es tragica)

  6. ironyisnotdead

    Oh! The biggest death flag unfurled… not for Harold.
    I think one of Harold’s biggest problems is that the people in this world don’t even have the concept of death flag. Despite constantly being skewered by them.
    How painful their flag invitation must have been for our MC to hear?

  7. Nekoyashiki-san

    Thanks for the chapter! ^^
    This poor man can’t take a break! XD
    And thanks for their great work to the author! 🙂

  8. Adan

    As an English learning person who enjoys translations from other languages i very much enjoy these stories even though i struggle with it both you and the writer make it enjoyable.

  9. Arvin

    Let’s see…i have this thought
    “What if Harold got drunk and his mouth got loose and said what he really thinks?”can that happen?idk it’s just my rambling.

  10. Von4

    Thank you very much for the translation!

    Could someone please post the link so I can say a few words to the author? I think I lost the original link…


  11. Brandon

    I binge read up until here.

    It’s okay though, I can wait! How often does this author post? Any encouragement I can give?

  12. Rimu

    The story is starting to get interesting.
    Especially about fate shenanigans, which people saved by him is starting a new death flag.
    Also the villain is starting to outsmart Harold’s game knowledge, like true evil mad genius.
    But I’m starting to lose hope when the author doesn’t post anything in 5 months.
    That’s the longest time for author not post anything.
    It feels like he will forget his own stories, and end it.
    Or encouragement will become pressure in different kind of sense.

      1. defiring

        The posting of the chapter has to match the publications of the author so as to advertise his work. That being the case, the optimal time for the post has to be chosen.

  13. passerby

    hey, going by your reply to someone else’s comment, when’s the author going to publish the next chapter? And are you already done with the translation, since your last comment here makes it seem like you’ve made some progress already on the next chapter?

  17. DepressedPotato

    Hello, are you still continuing translating this novel?

    I am new to this website and judging by the comment here it has been a while since the last update.

  18. Shira.Minata

    Hi !
    First thing, Thank you for the translation of Death flag ! I discover the manga and take a like to it so i just try the novel and… Here i am after a week 😅 i may have rush it a little too fast…
    Secondly Thank you for all your effort toward the author 😊 i do read a lot of translate novel but i didn’t see that much translator who try to help that author that much. So thank you too for helping us to keep in touch with the author, i would have never be able to find him on tweeter without you ☺️
    (😅 I hope my message is good because i’m not use to whrite in english… Well to put it simply it’s : Thank you for everythings !)

  19. passerby

    “Basically, I just need to proofread it. You will probably get it next week.”

    did something happen? sorry if I sound impatient.

    1. defiring

      Me half-dying haha
      I’ve proofread the chapter, but I still don’t have an established list of links etc… to share with you guys, and I’m frankly in no state to write anything

      1. HorrorIsland

        Oh dear! I hope you are recoverying! While I am, of course, terribly sad to hear you’ve been ill, I’d glad you’re still with us. God bless!

  20. Justin Jefferson

    I powered through this from Chapter 1 or now in about 4 days and all I have to say is…

    I just want someone to do what’s best for Harold. It’s kind of nice that they “want to respect his wishes” but after seeing how many times they’ve discovered he was doing good while masquerading as a villain, I wish Erica would just admit her feelings to him. Perhaps I’ve forgotten something in the marathon reading sessions but I guess I’m just sad to see them hurting themselves and eachother when it seems so easy to at least alleviate some of the pain they all feel.

    either way, it’s been a fun ride. Hopefully this is reaching a meaningful and satisfying conclusion soon-ish. I’d like to see Harold and Erica be happy together soon.

  21. Yun

    Thanks for translating!

    For those asking about next chapter. It’s available through Defiring patreon. It’ll probably remain that way until next chapter is released. The last few releases by the author were from June and then November so… It might be awhile for another update.

    Here’s to hoping for more updates and an eventual fulfilling ending to the series! CHEERS!

  22. StarlightDawn

    It appears that they have either stopped uploading or they’ve stopped translating, since they haven’t updated since the end of August. It’s a shame to see a good novel like this end like this.

    1. defiring

      The manga is being published, which often times puts a cap on novel updates. Same happened for a lot of novels.

  23. Planter

    So uhh did this get axed? There haven’t been any chapters since August.
    Please tell me you just stopped translating it oh God

  24. Netro

    Damn i read through all in like a week after the latest manga chapter and now feel empty hope you are still working on these tls

  25. Homedude

    Any of yall know what happened to the chapters after 116? syosetsu only reaches chapter 117, do yall know where i can find the rest?

  26. Siegfrid

    Thanks for the translation qwq I just got dragged here when I caught up in the manga. I didn’t noticed that I already caught up to the novel, I hope to see more continuation on the story

  27. harold x erica moment pleaseeee

    (°ロ°٥) soo…. i was just wondering that the genre: romance, harem.. but… i was thinking that wheres the romance and harem?(╥﹏╥) thingking about it… harold and erica didnt progress anything.. i mean it did progress with a so called “misunderstanding” (╥╯﹏╰╥)ง but still waiting for them to be happy get together or what so ever… thank u for TL defiring-sann~~~ im sorry im not really good at english.. and hoping that this novel will update more often

  28. hollowe

    welp i binch read since the begginning and now im sad, i wonder if the author is ok, or the translator, my country just went back to forced confinement so my store got closed again and im sitting at home…hope everyone who reads this is ok

  29. Lumierlunax@gmail.com

    Okay, I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, and I’m very appreciative of all the chapters that have been translated for FREE by you, it’s a very kind thing to do but it’s been about 7 months since the last chapter update. It’s been four months since the author updated the novel, and it’s been 2 months since you said you would update, I’ll discount January since something happened to you and I’m very sorry for that. I feel like ya readers should at least get the respect of a message or notification to tell us what’s going on, where’s this all going, when we might get a new chapter. You don’t owe us anything but it’s just left a bad taste in my mouth coming back from days, to weeks, to months and months on end with no explanation, no official message and just a blank page.

    1. defiring

      I’ve explained this a billion times. The chapters are rare so they’re to be posted when there is a milestone to advertise. But whatever, you know what, I’ll post it tomorrow. Let’s put a major wrench in the whole project for one transition chapter, it’s perfect.

    2. defiring

      And you do sound ungrateful, this novel was as good as dead ’till I basically begged the author to continue, so please spare me the complaints as I try to do the whole US-part of the marketing for basically free when I have a 9 to 6 job.

      1. Lumi

        I’m not asking for a new chapter, or for you to post one, I just would like an official announcement of what’s going on(author taking a break, even saying that you have no idea when a chapter will be our or if there ever will be is fine) what’s happening with you(if that’s not too personal and okay with you) and where this is all going. It’s fine if you want to cancel, it’s fine if you want to drop it, it’s also fine if you don’t want to post for a few months, but please can you at least tell me what’s going on so that I won’t get my hopes up and can align my expectations. And I do appreciate all the effort you went to for both the author and this story, sorry if I sounded ungrateful or rude, I didn’t mean it that way. It isn’t your fault and I don’t want to make it out to be, sorry.

      2. RCSerrano

        Sigh* I really love this novel, so I will continue to wait patiently for it to come out. I don’t know what its life for you to read those hate comments, but you should know that their are still a lot of people who support you and the author. I would like to join your patron but unfortunate I am a miner with no money and has older people looking at his stuff so I can do much but support you like this. I hope that if something happened to either you or the author that you get better. Can’t wait for the next update, see you then.

        1. Lumi

          Okay, just to once again clarify, I’m NOT asking for a chapter update, that would be rude because you are translating on your time for free. This is not a hate comment, I am, or was, asking for an update on what is going on with you, the author, and where this is all going.

      3. Lorddaimaou79

        I think, they didnt mean to hurt you, Defiring, they was just hoping you would write an update some news about your situation & your plan on the next chapter posting, maybe in your twitter maybe?, & this doesnt really mean you should post the chapter, they just want to know update news for the next novel chapter since the raws already out, & i too understand a bit their feeling, after coming here everyweek & finally gave up & just focus on following the manga every 2weeks
        & we now that you’re one of the biggest contributor to relive this manga & really thank you for that

  30. Scatthe

    Found Death Flag Manga and enjoyed reading it and decided to go for the novel version powered through in two days and caught up will the latest translation.

    Would like to give a warm thanks for the work that you’ve done in making an eng ver of the novel for us to read and enjoy.

  31. Wind

    Just caught up, the story is great and the translation is one of the best I know, it’s reassuring to see you this invested as there are lots of stories left untranslated and where we’re forced to give up or try our best with bad MTL, you’re the one who knows best when to post chapters so if you feel there’s the need to wait don’t get pressured by some comments, we don’t want the story to end abruptly simply because we didn’t show enough support at the right time.

    Anyway stay strong and we’re still backing you up, both you and the author

  32. Ike

    Just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work on translating this series.
    Also, sorry for all the toxic, impatient people who are annoying you about updates.

    For everyone’s reference, Tsuki ga Michibiku Isekai Douchuu had a nearly two year break after the manga started getting published. Be patient and support the series if you really want to see it continue.

  33. Matt1Ben

    Hey, thanks for translating this awesome novel…I’ve come after reading the latest chap of Death Flag manga, and due to wanting to prolong the experience, I’ve been nibbling slowly at the novel chaps within a month but well i caught up lol. I hope you and the author are doing well and keep up doing a great work in foretelling this story (can’t wait for Erica to grow closer to Harold)(also I feel something ominous with how that mad researcher is doing, hopefully harold wont die from whatever plans it has, i have my speculations hehe). I’ll wait here patiently for both novel and manga updates so take care and thanks for this story

  34. Red

    Thank you very much for your translations!
    It made me happy to see the manga was also becoming more successful (top read chapters 24h after each update on mangadex before the site went down).

    I don’t know what it is about this story, but it really pulls on the right strings for me.
    Hope the author gets more support and keeps making new chapters.

    1. defiring

      There is an error on Novelupdate. Chapter 117 is out and has been for a while. Chapter 118 will come out on the website very soon.
