I think I tried to post my own theory before reading the latest volume. Ah, here it is:
lol, yeah some of the step by step divergence from the original mythological tales are hilarious.

A quick read for anyone that is interested. I'm still missing the Marco Polo footnotes but it doesn't hinder the reading. Credits to Kira for checking it over.

Spoiler for Vol 12 CH 1 Section 2:

oh, its unfinished(the marcopolo notes have quite a bit to them), I kind of didn't want to put anything unfinished on BT and I'm not getting to the notes till I'm done with all of CH 1. Idk, it kind of bothers me to put anything unfinished on the site, but if its acceptable I can move it on there i guess.

Anyone knows the name of Susanoo two companions? I think I've heard of the living budha's story once but I can't recall the name. As for the princess, I susect she's Queen Himiko, but Himiko is never described as princess instead of queen so I'm not sure.

I have already spoiled what I'm willing to spoil of V12, somewhere in this thread. I believe any more will fundamentally decrease the reading experience, since wondering about the mystery is a large part of V12's charm. Of course I can't stop other people from posting spoilers, but...

You can wait with putting it up until you're happy with it. I'm doing the same with SS1 and V8C1. Of course you can also put it up part-wise, if you want, but don't do it just because people are impatient.

From what I remember, their names are never mentioned. However, the princess made me think of Himiko, too.

Yea, their names are never revealed, that's why I wonder if there's someone familiar with Japanese mythology who's able to deduce their identity from the hints(living budha, glass eyed princess who loves her garden)

It's best not to compare translators since each person has their own life and commitments.

The idea of gaining enlightenment and freeing oneself from the unending cycle of reincarnation is common to Eastern religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism.

In Hinduism (Prayopavesa) and Jainism (Santhara/Sallekhana), there exist real life practices of fasting to death as a voluntary and rational decision. So without any further details other than a dried out fleshless appearance, it probably isn't possible to narrow the monk's identity.

I would guess she is Kushinada, the consort of Susanoo. But Himiko is also a very possible candidate.
For the living Buddha, it is hinted at novel 6 that he may be the ancestor of Suginomiya family.

Ah yes, Susanoo's consort makes more sense than Himiko, who almost has no relationship with the legend of Susanoo. As for living buddha, although it might be more common in country with strong ties to Buddhism, there's not as much story like that in Japan which get known across generation since the country has stronger ties tward Shintoism so I was thinking there might be a name that stands out. Oh well, all this obscure semi-mythologism is what makes Campione interesting and unique, that's why I was trying to spur dscussion about it since I kinda like obscure myth

Hmmm..i think,looking at how "she" talk with susanoo and others,i vote for Queen himiko.,since a consort wont have attitude like that..i mean,she more like a queen than a consort...>XD

I do kind of agree with him that there are times I feel like the "oblivious male MC + bunch of girls fighting for him" does get kind of old. The humor is nearly the same for many of those kinds of setups. For me it needs that extra something to it besides being a humorous romantic sort of cuteness. Mythology based+superpowers+Character development is what made me like this LN. I think the humor is well done, the premise of the story is nice, the romance progresses nicely. Also I disagree with him that the male protagonist isn't "cool". He may be a bit awkward but he is a Campione and does show his dominance when it is called for.

As for characters I hate.......none, which is surprising in a harem as there is usually always someone that annoys me.
