Poseidon of the East (21)

The Japanese is close enough in meaning that at the end of the chapter I have Atsuyu paraphrase these lines from Paradise Lost by John Milton:

All this good of evil shall produce,
And evil turn to good; more wonderful
Than that which by creation first brought forth
Light out of darkness!

Thank you for the translation!
I really enjoy how this story is unfolding.
The conversations between the people on either sides
are just marvellous! I kind of get the feeling that Rokuta is wavering in his justifications each time
he gets to talk with Atsuyu.
