Manga wo Yomeru Ore ga Sekai Saikyou – Chapter 27

Chapter 27: Everything Concerning Grimoires


I returned inside the library.

Snow was falling outside with my magic, but nothing had changed inside.

A wonderful space where there are tens of thousands of mangas.

It was just like a manga cafe.


Until the snow outside stops, I should read manga for a while, I thought.

I stood in front of the nearest bookshelf, and glanced through their covers.

I was quite excited. Because almost all of the Grimoires are ones that I hadn’t read before.

I took one that I had not read before, and the time when I was going to read it.


「You’re a new face huh〜」



I was called out, so I looked to my side.

There was one old man there.

Wearing normal clothes, he was holding a broom and a dustpan.

I wonder if he was a janitor.

As usual, I answered in child-mode.


「Nice to meet you, I am Lucio Martein」

「Ohh, then you are that Lucio-sama, the new administrator of this library」

「Yes, what about Ojii-san?」

「Please call be Abe」

「Abe-san desu ne. Please take care of me」


I took a quick glance to the Grimoire that I took out, and looked around the library.


「What is the matter」

「A-no-ne, where should I read this, I thought」


「Un, something like a sofa, or a chair would be nice, I thought. I thought I wanted to sit there and slowly read the Grimoire」


When I said that, Abe-san was very surprised for some reason.

His eyes on his wrinkled face was widened, and was staring at me.

Did I, say something weird?


「Abe-san what’s the matter?」

「Administrator-san think of interesting things」

「Is that so? It’s a library right, wouldn’t you want a place to have a seat and read?」

「If it was a normal library, then that is true. But this is the Grimoire Library where Grimoires are stored, they are all Grimoires that would take from months to years to read, there’s no meaning even if there are chairs and sofas」



When I think about it, that was right.

I almost forget since I was able to read normally, but the almost all of the people of this world cannot read manga.

As Abe-san had told, one book would normally take several months, some may take years. I guess that’s true that with that, chairs aren’t needed in this library.


「I see……ne〜, do you think it’s okay if I bring my own chair」

「Lucio-sama is administrator-sama, so that much is」

「Thank goodness. Then, I have to find a good chair and sofa huh, I’m going to read this much Grimoires, the chair that I’m going to sit on during that should be good」

「Are you planning to read everything」


Abe-san was still surprised.


「Un! There’s this much of them, I have to read it. It’s exciting right, to be able to read Grimoires this many as much as I want」

「Lucio-sama likes studying huh」



I laughed wryly.


「I think so. In everyone that I have met until now, they all felt as if reading Grimoires was mortification」


Mortification, huh. Well, they’re forcefully reading what they couldn’t read, so maybe it’s mortification.

But yeah, if I think of it as reading every manga in a manga cafe, it might be a little be mortifying.

But I’ll still do my best and read it though.

The manga here, the more I read them, the more I can learn magic, so mortification or whatever, I’ll do it.


「A person like Lucio-sama is the first time」

「Was that so」

「I cannot read Grimores, but I will support Lucio-sama from the shadows」

「Thanks, Abe-san」


I said thanks.

From Abe-san, I had the same feeling with Ojii-san on our family mansion.

Making a kind smile, it was almost just like the same with an Ojii-san who treats his grandchild kindly.

Maybe, I’m a Jijii-killer. I don’t feel bad.

While thinking about that and tried to read the next manga, the library’s door was opened widely.

A middle-aged man who was wearing a splendid attire opened it. That man was having a serious look, but when he looked here, he clearly was relieved.


「This is bad」


Said Abe-san who was beside me. What is bad?

The middle-aged man, while catching his breath, sounded his footsteps while he approached.

And, he stood in front of Abe-san who was beside me.


「I was looking for you, your majesty」

「Your majesty?!」


I was very surprised and looked at Abe-san. Abe-san was like *YareYare*, and sighed with a troubled face.

And soon after, his air changed.

From the air of a very friendly janitor Ojii-san, to a noble’s air that had a majestic aura.

His appearance hadn’t changed, but it was as if he was a different person.


「Your majesty, he said……could you be, the King?」

「Umu. I am the King of Savoya, Abraham the Third de aru」


No way, is he’s really the king!


「I am sorry for hiding my identity. I had heard from Ruby, but I wanted to actually see what kind of person you are with my eyes」

「I-Is that so」

「In reality, it’s good that I met you. You are a more wonderful child than what Ruby had talked about」

「Thank you very much」


I was praised very much, it looks like he’d really had taken a like to me.

And that Abe-san……the King, looked towards the middle-aged man.




「Gather artisans, to make this child leisurely read Grimoires inside the library, make a space where he can read comfortably」

「As you wish」

「Also, I will grant all of the authority that the royal house have concerning with Grimoires to this child. Make the draft for the imperial rescript」


This time, he looked towards me, and said.




「As you have heard. I will leave this whole Grimoire Library to you. Everything of it」

「Can I buy new Grimoires?」


I remembered what Ojii-san had asked of me, and asked.


「Hahaha. Of course, collect all as you want」

「Waaai, thank you!」


It was a little exaggerating in the child-mode, but I was simply happy.

Not only what is here, I was happy that they would increase.

Looking at me being joyful, the King made a kind smile.

As I’ve thought, it was the same feeling with Ojii-san that was in our family home.


「Your majesty」


Hugo said to the King with a serious face.


「What is it」

「If it would be all authorities concerning Grimoires, a Baron rank is needed at least」

「Then make him a Baron」

「As you wish」




That is, could that be?!

The King, deepened his smile and made a pleasant smile towards me.

    Thanks for the chapter!
    Nice rank up! XD

  4. You know this has been nagging at me, Why is it so hard for them to read the manga? I mean, I can understand if they simply don’t understand Japanese, but the difficulties described don’t seem to be limited to language barriers.

    • kirindas says:

      I agree. They glaze over Lucio trying to teach his grandpa and wife on how to read it, but I feel like there’s not enough effort in the attempt. Idk.

    • rahkart says:

      different language, different mangas, manwas, comics etc .. as these are structured, medieval times meaningless entertainment, if you think about it is logical that they do not understand

    • framee says:

      They see it as a pages of pictures, they did not read per-panel, didn’t understand what’s text buble nor background noise text.

      At least i think it was like that, also language barrier i suppose, if the manga is in jap, i think it will be very hard for them to understand.

      Fuck it, it was just OP, slice-life, warm, non-thinker novel, don’t think too much about it.

      • Don’t think too much, even the writer didn’t put that much effort of explaining why people can’t read it.

        Easy story with easy heroine (since they’re kid)

        Don’t mind of he unleash weather changing magic in middle of city without thinking the effect on people or plant there.

    • remember the first time you saw a raw? I’m assuming its something like that. even if you know the proper reading order its hard to tell whats going on if you dont have a firm grasp of the language. At least thats how I think it is.

    • infinityatmo says:

      I’m really starting to think there might be an outside force that just makes it hard to read or impossible to read entirely. The reason I’m guessing so is due to however many times Lucio explains to his wives, they just don’t seem to get it. So, I would have to say maybe there is a godly force that could be interfering with peoples comprehension of those grimoires. I mean you got Lucio, who is reincarnated with full memories. If you can be reincarnated, I’m willing to believe it’s a godly being’s doing on whether or not you can read grimoires.

      • Anonymous Coward says:

        This. Combined with *this is what the author set as the premise*.

        It would be nice of him to slice into “why” they can’t read, hard-fiction style. Only some novels actually have the world-building background to go into that, however. It’s a delicate line between ‘hard-fiction universe setup’ and ‘entertaining slice of life story’.

        I do wish Author put a *little* more thought into the reality and background of his universe, per my comment about “causing a Cold Snap famine” in the previous chapter.

    • notusloyal says:

      Its actually pretty hard for beginer tho since between chinese , korean , and japanese Manga needs different way of reading

    • It’s like reading an academic paper to them. If you got experience you know how to read it, but if you don’t know the topic you begin to glaze over it.

    • I don’t think it would have anything to do with language or anything. I don’t even think they ever stated that there is a language barrier in the first place. If you’ve ever seen it Spongebob, it’s like that scene where the evil guy is trying to give Patrick back his wallet. Regardless of the logic, he just never seems to accept the fact that it’s his wallet. His ID is in it and everything, but he just reply’s with “It’s not mine”.

      My theory is that the people of this world are just simply unable to wrap their heads around the concept. Learning something new is not always so straight forward. Sometimes it requires time to sink in, and for some reason, these people are unable to comprehend such things.

      Anyways. I thought I would put my take on it here. Maybe I’m way off, or other people have already thought of this stuff, but.¯_(ツ)_/¯

    • Bencachinit says:

      If he read the manga to others and they were watching the pages, understanding his words and his progress (by putting his finger where he is at on the page); could anyone learn magic? Just something I need to know because being able to cheeze the system would be AWESOME!

  5. somedude01 says:

    lol, the king is beyond chill, he’s frozen

    lol… it just my wish…

  10. thedefend says:

    He cant run away now. Pretty smart of king to bind him to the kingdom with that much reward. No way you gonna let a walking apocalypse walks freely

      From the story was going, is it my house?

      「……I see, sorry」”

      Chapter 3

  14. MasterGeo0X says:

    I dont envy the MC “cheat”. i mean.. how about you want some spell and the manga is something really dissapointing or rage inducer like Negima or Mahoromatic, the poor MC cant even rage quit, after all he need to complete the manga

    • Silva Lau says:

      What?! I dare you say that again, HOW ARE YOU BELITTLE NEGIMA!! IT’S A GREAT MANGA!

      • Negima is awesome. Jack Rakan is one of the best characters in the serries

      • Silva Lau says:

        That Lightning Negi vs Jack Rakan, best moment ever XD

      • that and the part where Jack’s existence is erased and he is so damn badass that he brings himself back into existence just to hit Negi on the head. talk about broken character. only time jack lost was when he literally goes against someone that controls existence. He’s right up there with Alucard, Zoro and Hibari in my top 5 most badass characters in anime

      • MasterGeo0X says:

        Negima was awesome, but at the same time RAGE INDUCER, just look at the shtty ending.. i mean WTF, we, the readers, dont have any fault about all the conflict between the author and the editorial and at the end the author fck everything the manga was because his “vendetta” thing. BTW i give my negima manga collection to a friend of mine.

      • ikamores says:

        Continues in UQ-holder.

        Let’s kill negi.

  15. psychobee says:

    thanks for the chapter XD

  16. Lucio-kun got conned?
    Thanks for the treat!

  17. Nyamsus says:

    the distance between brothers has become further

  18. FoxWasser says:

    just a second here !!! just like that? so sudden ? give everyting to him / let him use ANYTHING and make him confortable / give peerage for not being trouble / JUST JUST FOR %$!”·!”·!”$%!”·!” SAYING HELLO I WANT TO READ ALL !! wtf with this development? from the name i already was waiting for a normal no brutal opness novel with a slice of life advance with lolis and stuff but so sudden he was appointed to become a $!”·!”$”! god just like that ?
    i wont hate this novel yet but. at least there are 3 things that i dont like
    1> demi human << he treats her as a pet? in the first place isnt he a reincarnated ppl? he was really cold hearted enough to treat a loli girl as a dog or cat? somehow i get the feeling that he really make them eat on the floor as well
    2> for being an era of sword and magic? isnt the security and order completely fine? aside useless bandits i only have seen liars / ( where do the corrupt ppl nobles perverts thiefs assasins drunkyards and pride jerks go ?
    3> MC easy going – its not that i hate him for that, but its just to carefree. in the first place he MADE SNOW N PUBLIC how come no one its looking at him weird ? normally there would be ppl fearing him or even praying to him.

    well aside from those 3 points i like this novel but somehow I WANT A R18 development already!, though i know its impossible but would be so fun HAHA

  19. Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!

  20. thedefend says:

    so that much is
    Is allowed

  21. Mech@ says:

    Baron, huh. This King sure doesn’t waste his time. If he can pull such a powerful weapon to his side, a title is nothing.

  22. Baron at one go! nice 😀 , i thought maybe Duke or Arch Duke more the right rank for him to get all the power, he just get from the king

    thx for the chapter ^^

  23. ikamores says:

    Negima get fucked cause the anime was shit.

    Jack Ratan is the best hero ever.

    Our shota Mc is gonna called the billion master.

    He is gonna be ntred if only read books there.

  24. tgb869 says:

    Woohoo! Noble status!

  25. udin-san says:

    what’s with the author’s logic? the more time you need to read a book, the more you need chair and table. It’s even more true when you can’t easily take the books out the library! Do you expect someone to stand for months to read a Grimoire?

  26. Seinvolf says:

    Thank u always for ur great work…

    Nice move King-san…

  27. Bladyblah says:

    Went from 0-100 real quick
