Chapter 200 – Mysterious Architect Eta Lloyd Wright

Translator: Makisima from wangmamaread

Proofreader: Hieu

As we landed, we heard the sound of the door breaking down overhead.

“Run with all you have! If you strengthen your body while running, they won’t be able to catch up to you.” (Christina)

Since I would become a literal meteor if I ran too fast, I dashed after Christina at a Mob Swordsman-level speed.

She increased her speed with her smooth magic control.

“Come on, zombies will overrun us soon. We will be finished if we stop.”

Christina told me as she swung her sword to kill zombies in front of us.


Sound of zombies running could be heard from behind us.

They were extremely fast, comparable to hounds running at full speed. Ordinary people would have zero chance of escaping if they meet these zombies.

Unfortunately, there were no Americans in this world.

Ah, but there were swordsmen.

“Straight along this road!”

“Ha… ha…” 

I didn’t forget to pant heavily like a true mob character.

All the zombies ahead were killed by Christina. Thank you, Miss Mob!


For some reason, at the end of the street, a modern Japanese-styled building stood, like it was brought from another world.

It was Mitsugoshi Company, no doubt.

The architectural style was the exact same as what I’ve seen in my previous world. Why was there a Japanese-styled building in such a country?

The building style does not fit this world no matter how much you think about it.

“No matter how many times I see it, I can’t help but marvel at its beauty! Its architectural style blends perfectly with the monotonous street! The architecture goes beyond the times! The style is so different from traditional architecture and yet, gives off the feeling of having a never-ending history behind it! Let’s propose a toast to Eta Lloyd Wright, the genius architect, whose work won unanimous first place in last year’s Architecture of the Year!”


After hearing Christina’s praise for a modern Japanese Department Store, I accidentally made a strange noise.


How is this building amazing?

Isn’t this cultural blasphemy on the level of adding mayonnaise in chilled Chinese noodles?

(Editor’s joke: It’s like adding pineapple on pizza, don’t kill me for this)

chilled Chinese noodles

Although I couldn’t agree at all, we arrived at the Mitsugoshi Company anyways.

“No, it’s locked.” (Christina)

“Then break it.” (Sid)

As I drew my sword, Christina’s facial expression suddenly changed.

“I won’t let you do that!”

She held out her arms before me as if to protect the door and glared at me.

“It is told that even if the Royal Palace is destroyed, the Mitsugoshi Company Oriana branch should be protected at all costs. I won’t let you lay a finger on it!”

“No no no, think about our situation!?”

Countless zombies were chasing after us at full speed!

“Sid-kun, don’t you know how beautiful and detailed this door is?”

“I have zero idea!”

No matter how I look, it’s just a door.

“Then let me tell you, this door…”

Christina killed a zombie behind me before she finished her words.

“Such delicate and beautiful decoration…”

And so, she continued while killing many more zombies.

“The nuisance is busy now. Let’s destroy it.”

While Christina was busy dealing with zombies, I injected magic into my sword.


I ignored her despairing cry that sounded like her lover was being killed.

Eta Lloyd Wright must be Eta. If I grab her by the neck, she will make even 10 or 20 doors like that.

And then…

The door opened with a rattling sound.

“Don’t break down the door! Come in! Quick!”

A man’s voice came from inside.

I grabbed Christina by the neck and ran into the building.

Lambda is one of the “Numbers” of
Shadow Garden. Those that come after “Seven Shadow”. Nu aka. Nyuu is one of them. I think the Numbers have particular expertise in one field which make them stand out. But they can’t rise their rank to “Seven Shadows” . Like Nyuu as make up/disguise specialist,perhaps Lambda is trainer specialist.
btw.since Era make the door and she excell at research,I want surprised if the door somehow can sprout spikes and can bite zombies like the Chomper from Plants vs Zombies😁

I thought another door breaking will commence~~~

Shadow Admirer Posted on11:00 pm - Aug 23, 2019

Haha, i’m looking forward Seven Shadows Full Team to act.
P.S: I’m Last? I cannot type first, so maybe i become Last. Haha.

Kasame Posted on8:59 pm - Aug 23, 2019

Wait , so far we have Alpha “first met girl , elf girl” ; Beta “elf , write Shadow chronicles , information departement-like manager ” ; Gamma (weak , knowledge oriented human(?) , economic departement-like manager” , Delta ( birdbrained battle maniac beast-girl ) : Epsilon ((flat) bust size obsessed human writer ) ; Eta ( architect new girl) … Who is Zeta again ?!

    rost Posted on9:48 pm - Aug 23, 2019

    Zeta does research work

    Yaboiiiithanos Posted on6:47 am - Aug 24, 2019

    the writer is beta, epsilon is a musician
    Eta is the one doing research like decoding sid’s code in the last arc. Zeta is still unknown

      Kasame Posted on4:00 am - Aug 25, 2019

      oh Yeah , that’s right , made me remember , thanks ^^

    Matti Posted on12:45 pm - Aug 24, 2019

    Of the first seven girls, 5 are elfs and 2 are beasts or the likes (Delta and 1 more). Seven Shadows that can I remember from top of my head:
    Alpha, elf, Shadow’s second in command
    Beta, elf, writer and author of Shadow’s War Chronicles
    Delta, beast girl, loose cannon
    Gamma, elf, head of Mitsugoshi Company
    Epsilon, elf, pianist
    Lambda, dark skinned elf, drill instructor of Shadow Garden

      Whips Posted on3:33 pm - Aug 24, 2019

      Lambda is not Seven Shadows, she is so much like Nyuu accredited by Seven Shadows. She just the instructor of new recruits in alexandria.

      Alpha – Beta – Gamma – Delta – Epsilon – Eta – Zeta

        Wp Posted on3:41 pm - Aug 24, 2019

        If I may right, if the girl strong enough that prove worthy can stand beside the Seven Shadows, she will get the name form Aphabet right?

    Greebo Posted on3:40 pm - Aug 24, 2019

    There is no humans in Seven Shadows 4 elves and 2 best-girls. About Zeta we know nothing for now. Eta doing research work.

Paps Posted on8:05 pm - Aug 23, 2019

Red.Gamer Posted on6:02 pm - Aug 23, 2019

The seven shadows are now all introduced.
Alpha, beta, delta, eta, epsilon, gamma and lambda

    Red.Gamer Posted on6:03 pm - Aug 23, 2019

    By the way, I think it’s ‘zeta’ not ‘eta’

      Wtrmute Posted on6:15 pm - Aug 23, 2019

      No, Eta is fine; the problem is Lambda, which got the name of the 11th letter for some reason.

      Maybe the sixth girl who was rescued got Zeta as a name but doesn’t have Seven Shadows-level talent; maybe Sid-kun doesn’t know the Greek alphabet as well as he should; the point is that there’s plenty of reasons for things to be this way.

        Busker Posted on10:36 am - Aug 24, 2019

        I dont remember reading about lambda being a seven shadows. It was mentioned in chapter 117 that the last two were zeta and eta. Lambda is just the instructor of new recruits in alexandria.

    Yaboiiiithanos Posted on6:55 am - Aug 24, 2019

    lambda is not a part of the seven shadows
    And eta and zeta are 2 different people. Zeta is the only even shadow that has not het been introduced

    Yaboiiiithanos Posted on6:57 am - Aug 24, 2019

    lambda is just the training instructor in alexandria

    Alfha Robby Posted on4:20 pm - Aug 23, 2019

    nah she’s first introduce around chapter 198 while she scream for help thus sid manage save her.

    as for her background about his classmate well its a first for us as well.

    but then again this is Web Novel she might be introduce earlier in Light Novel though.

Rain Harvey Posted on2:56 pm - Aug 23, 2019

Finally, it took 200+ chapters to introduce Eta to the next chapter. Well, they did mention Eta in previous before but never reveal herself, this time, we all want to know what she look like in Shadow Garden. Let me guess, she used to be a noble.

….I don’t know which one is weirder in this situation; Cid for being Cid or Christina for prioritizing a door over her own life?

    Kat Posted on3:38 pm - Aug 23, 2019

    This right there makes her a candidate for the shadows.

    Why you guys making such a big deal about being first? What benefit of gaining on this?

      ZeroSugar Posted on11:31 am - Aug 23, 2019

      New to the internet huh? It has been like this since the dawn of time.

        Chicken avocado Posted on11:42 am - Aug 23, 2019

        Which is why I don’t get it why people keep doing that

          PotatoZero Posted on12:05 pm - Aug 23, 2019

          Eh, being the first on a test also doesn’t benefit you, yet people still fuss about it

            Chicken avocado Posted on2:43 pm - Aug 23, 2019

            I’m one of the people, that is why I’m asking, it happens all the time :/
