Chapter 1: Magical Beast

Chapter 1: Magical Beast

*Going with the original authors writing when talking about MC, BUT I will take a few liberties and changes things up if it sounds much better depending on the situation*

It has approximately been 550 days since I have been living in this cave. I’ve been staring at  the characters I carved out into a wall. It resembles snow leopard because of its white and black fur along its body. This magical beast already looks like the size of a snow leopard back on Earth, but I was amazed to learn it’s still far from its adult size. Staring at beast in front of me I poked its nose with my finger, to its dissatisfaction open its eyes and stared at me pouting. With a tail twice as long as its body, going pesi-pesi as it sways, against my body. Without looking back at me, it wound its tail around my neck, as I silently caressed the beast’s neck. Immediately the magical beast began to make a goro goro sound from it’s throat purring like a cat. Look at this, one would say that this was a ridiculous exchange, but to them it was usual. After their first encounter kurodo decided to name this magical beast, Yukishiro.

[TL Note: 雪白= Yukijiro which means snow white, and  ゆきしろと= Shiro which means snow water/ melt water. Actual name for the beast is 雪ゆきしろと in the raw for those of you wondering.]

Since it couldn’t be helped I had to stay inside the cave, kurodo did not have to think the present food problem, he had to think about preparing himself thoroughly. Being stranded isn’t as difficult as one would think unless I go outside, and it would be easy to imagine that the Japanese in this world since it was said that this place is more dangerous. Therefore, kurodo decided to dedicate himself to learning as many skills as he could from the magic textbook. I decided to practice magic along with physical exercise in order to improve my physical strength. After all, in the center, it is a magic technology, though, because the body does not seem to be able to do such a specialized thing. Then kurodo decided to reading the magic textbook as long as there was light peering into his cave, but once that light diminished he would then practice what he had read.

[Fire]

I fainted.

When I got up while feeling light sharp pain throughout my whole body, I passed out and entire day. I did not see my watch to confirm this. I retired myself to the depths of the cave slowly and fell to sleep while feeling sharp pains all throughout my body. Skimming through the lesson is quite dangerous. The next morning as soon as I woke up, I grabbed the textbook within my hand, while feeling the chilly air all around me. Not to mention the lesson I learned yesterday, I felt a sense of impending crisis, just as the cold encroached upon me. Taking out a piece of my ration bread, I looked at the book’s table of contents and preface chapter, kurodo read it from corner to corner, read it again, and again, then finally practiced it.

[TL NOTE: I wish this author would chill on the run-on sentences, and make it more clear as to first-person or third-person, when referring to the MC.]

[Small flame]

[TL NOTE: It said small fire, but thought small flame sounded better.]

This time I fainted with a headache.

The fainting and a sharp pain caused me to have a headache, the headache itself wasn’t the problem, kurodo felt fatigue and muscle pain from using magic without hesitation. As a result, I wasn’t able to clearly define my intentions for the chant, therefore I wasn’t able to control how I wanted to discharge the magic.

What if all the excess of a human’s life force was pooled together wouldn’t that be called magic power, but when you use it then its called magic. kurodo then inhaled a deep breath, almost as if he was drawing in the energy to maintain all life. His body that had felt a sense of crisis made them faint to it to intercept the supply of magic to the outside that kurodo had permitted compulsorily. Tricking his body into thinking it had an insufficient amount of lifeforce to maintain itself, his body began to increase the amount of lifeforce.

Kurodo felt invisible plankton like things greedily absorbing the surrounding magic power, suddenly feeling his own magic power rapidly rising to its peak, he fainted.

Kurodo quickly stands up. This time he felt slight back pain and a slight ringing in his ears. Looking at his wristwatch he noticed that this time not a whole day had passed, this time roughly only 3 hours had passed.

And again,

[Small crimson flame]

Around the same time I felt a pang in my heart, I fainted. However, I continued this 10 more times, each recurring time the duration of my fainting kept getting shorter, I then dug a small hole in the middle of the room, making a makeshift hearth, in the middle of the heart was a small fist sized red flame burning proudly. It’s concretization of the lowest-class fire spirit, and it’s an almost commonplace occurrence, that a resident of this world uses for their cooking. Kurodo learned from this experience that magical spirits manifest themselves as natural phenomenons in this world as long as you provide them with enough magical power. Kurodo who finally succeeded with his first magical chant, began to immerse himself in more magic related things.

I got up in the morning and looked outside for a change of pace, then I began to continue practicing magic, and fainting. While Kurodo spent everyday practicing, without him realizing it the snowstorm outside already ended. It was around this time the scratches on the wall he used to count days reached 180 in total. Kurodo then destroyed the soil covering the entrance to his cave like usual before a meal. After having succeeding in manifesting an earth spirit, he was able to repair the wall before retiring for the night now much easier than before. It was the only thing he could summon with his current understanding of magic.The morning light made its way across the sky marking dawn. Kurodo closes his eyes and smiles facing the dazzling bright light. It was his first time experience the direct rays of sunlight after such a long time.

After opening his eyes he began to look around the mountain side. On a rock bathing in the sun’s rays, there laid a magical beast that really resembled a snow leopard as usual basking in the sun. When the magical beast slowly raises its head, I can see its white head without any patterns, unlike the mixture of patterns from its neck down to its tail. As a whole, there are few spots that are blacker than a snow leopard. A pair of ash golden eyes that quietly watches me from a place considerably away, It seemed to be filled with pride, not even worth bothering to acknowledge an existence such as myself. Noticing that this is a trivial matter not worth anything, it begins to lie back down stretching it entire body on the rock, acting as if nothing ever happened.

It was a wild animal that mesmerized Kurodo. During those 180 days, the  snowstorm occasionally became lighter. Whenever Kurodo looked outside in the morning he always saw this magical beast there. At first when he looked into the beasts eyes, his body became stiff thinking that he was going to be eaten, but after repeating this for several days now, it became a normal thing in his morning routine. But it might have gotten used to Korodo watching it. Still it was a fact that neither of them approached each other.

There are various opinions, but, according to the definition of the magic book, the magical beast seems to be called that because it can use different forms of magic. After several generations of its ancestors trying to cast magic and infusing themselves with magic power, after being passed down through its generations, it became a species that could practice magic. Life force are universally spirits of the dead that dwell within anything living whether it be trees, insects, and even man, each one of these only have one life force dwelling within them respectively. It could be called another [ Heart brain].

*[TL Note: Literal translation is Heart Brain from “『心臓脳』”, anyone have any other English friendly suggestions.]*

A human being was also an apparition of a living person if I saw it in a wide sense and possibly might be a magical beast? Monster – apparition of a living person whom there is no room for all negotiations reduces a stomach and does it and changes in quality and embodies it. The natural disaster, Even existence was universally different from the enemy of the living thing. It cannot be said that all the devil beasts can negotiate, but there does not need to be no room for all negotiations like a monster.

In fact, among a magical beasts and Kurodo such as the snow leopard, a mutual noninterference bond was built silently between the two. Maybe it was because Kurodo did not have the power to offensively attack it. Kurodo never even considered the possibility of hunting the snow leopard for its thick fur to keep warm in this cold environment.

In such a mutual non-interference of relationship, maybe because he wanted to see this magical beast Kurodo looked out every morning, is it his entertainment of the day, in the confirmation of the presence of another person other than your own perhaps it was because of this.

Shaking out of fear of the outside world, or shaking with excitement in anticipation of an adventure, or was it only due cold?

Kurodo didn’t have an answer to his own question.

But in order to find out the answer for himself, he first has to go outside first.

*TL Note: going forward should I call life force “命精” just plain old mana going forward?*

Divine Protection of Many Gods Episode 10

Takami no Kago Episode 10

*100% completed*

In the morning of the next day, Mr. Kuresuto and a woman who already finished the traveling preparations were waiting for me in an open space close to the east gate of the meeting place.

“Good morning. I’m sorry to have kept you all waiting.”

Since we decided that we would leave in the morning, we just didn’t set an exact time. In the first place owning a watch is very expensive, so only rich nobles and merchants can afford one. Mr. Kuresuto looked over at me and smiled before he was about to say something.

“Don’t worry about it, we only arrived a short while ago. It’’s not a problem. Thank you in advance from today onwards.”

“Likewise, Thank you as well.”

“So, she’ll be the guide from this point on. ”

“Hello my name is Poroia [ポーロイアです].”

“Hi, I’m an adventurer. My best regards. And this is Aria another member of my party.”

“My best regards.”
-TL: I think this is Aria who said this, since there was no subject specifically mentioned, and she was mentioned in the previous line.

Aria quickly finished her greeting in a few words. It seems that her communication with others is still a bit weak. It seems that she seems comfortable with talking to me and Lily. After all she would seems a little tense when meeting someone else for the first time.

“So will we be leaving now? Yeah, I already have the carriage waiting for us outside of the East Gate.”

Looking at the carriage by the East Gate, it seems that there is no one in the driver’s seat. It seems that Mr. Kuresuto himself will be driving us.

“Doing business in Wereo Village has to be done directly and I can’t bring that many people with me.”
-TL: This dialogue confused the hell out of me?

[Jade Fabric] tends to generate tons of wealth. That’s why he is trying to limit the information surrounding it. We’ll probably be have to be very careful even after the request is finished. I still think that it’s very mysterious how all of the previous people to do this ended up dying.

“Why did you make a request such as this so last minute. Why did you want to employ us adventurers who have very little experience act as you gaurds.”

I try questioning Mr. Kuresuto a little bit.

“Hmm. Because unlike the people before you I can trust you.”

“Why would you say something like that?”

“Merchant’s intuition. If I had to say something, its because I don’t feel your desire in having the [Jade Fabric] from you as much as the others. Normally such a narrow minded person is only thinking about making short-term profits. But I have already confirmed your intelligence just from talking to you.”

“I will try to fulfill your expectations of me.”

Its not that I particularly want to have the [Jade Fabric]. I thought about what he said about me as the type of person who doesn’t really care about the value of it. I think its probably due to my nature. After a while we were finally out of the city, and currently heading towards the forest Aria and I always go to. As we slowly approached the familiar forest Aria opened her mouth as if she wanted to say something.

“Master, it appears that someone is being attacked by monsters ahead.”
“What?”

It makes sense that there would be monsters in this forest. I don’t know if the person being attacked is a merchant or a traveler. I should probably inform Mr. Kuresoto about this and see what he was to say.

“It looks like it can’t be helped. Im sorry about this but I’m going to fight that monster.”

“Are you sure?”

I usually wouldn’t put myself in harms way just to help someone else being attacked. Considering I was requested by the Adventurer’s Guild to be this merchants bodyguard it can’t be helped.

“I think this would be a perfect opportunity to see the extent of your abilities. Of Course I will give you an additional reward if you battle it.”

“Fine. Aria do you know the number of opponents we’ll be facing?”

“There are most likely 5 of them.”

“Alright then, if thats the case you should guard the carriage then. I’ll come back when I’m finished with them.”

“Certainly.”

I walked forward alone leaving guarding the carriage to Aria. The horse drawn-carriage greatly reduced its speed. Leaving the number of people guarding the carriage dropped to zero would seem unacceptable. Aria should be able to tell if the course of the battle changes to my disadvantage, and only then would she step in to help. I discovered the group of monsters around what I presume is an abandoned carriage.

******************************************
Its a [Goblin]. It seems that the things that attacked that person were these fellows. There was equipment scattered everywhere in tatters. It looks like he is a situation where he couldn’t escape even if he wanted to being surrounded by 5 goblins. Is that a woman I see. Their skin color was green and stood about 120cm in height. They have a tattered cloth around their waists. It looks like that’s the standard for them. In this fantasy world I would compare them to slimes. Goblins are by no means strong monsters. If someone fought them alone they would probably win, even if they weren’t adventurers. However Goblins are not monster to be reckoned with. That’s because they’re almost never alone, they fight with elementary strategies such as decoy and pincer attack while fighting as a group. In addition they tend to prefer human females over their very own females of the same race. Their gestation is extremely quick, as well as their fast growth. It takes them roughly 2 weeks to reach adulthood. Meanwhile, I proceeded to cut down one goblin from its backside, since it’s a monster disliked most by the female adventurers.

“Danger!!”

There were three left after my surprise attack. Of course I don’t stay in one place after being detected. The second goblin charges at me from its previous position. I cut off one his arms as he charged at me, and then avoided the rest of his attack by quickly maneuvering my body in time to doge. Now there are only two left. Now the fight is two against two, although it would be cruel if they attacked the female near me. Immediately the Goblins who were taken back by my surprise attack quickly try to recover themselves.

“Aria now!”
-TL: Where did she come from? I thought she was guarding the carriage, unless I miss translated that part?

*Creek*
I quickly look behind the goblins. The two quickly look behind themselves. I can’t overlook such an opportunity. I quickly seized my sword with both hands, as I quickly stepped forward, and sweaped my sword from one side to the other, ending up decapitating both of their heads at once. One can force their way through a fight relying on stats alone, but I used my experience from fighting monsters in the forest. Using a feit as an attack is very effective for monsters that have the same level of intelligence of Goblins. I could have fought a little better if Aria was here and we worked together instead.

“Are you okay?”
“Y, Yes. Thank you for saving me from them. Wait, Its you!?”

“Um? Do I know you from somewhere, oh you’re that female in the Adventurer’s Guild from yesterday.”

Whoops, I remember that it’s the mysterious alchemist I checked that stats of.  But this is an unnecessary thing to say so i’ll withhold that piece of information.

“Ah, yes. I remember you now.”

“Its probably because you’re a cute girl. But didn’t I remind you to be careful last time?”

Emily tried to explain while her face became extremely red.

“You, you think I’m cute!? Oh, I am sorry. I absolutely needed the money…”

“For the time being do you want to head back to your wagon.”

Just as I was talking to her the wagon I’m being paid to guard pulls up.

“Are you alright master?”

“Yeah, there were five goblins. Aria you were right.”

Aira’s ability to accurately detect and predict roughly the number of enemies is amazing. Oh but, there are a few marginal errors in the identifying the exact number, though she wasn’t able to detect if it was a human, demon, or another beastman. It still is very beneficial when you’re searching in the woods.

“I dealt with the 5 goblins easily. I used my experience and abilities.”

Kuresuto looked very impressed as I spoke.

“I was only able to make a surprise attack, since she was being attacked by them.”

I tried telling them about what happened in as much detail as possible.

“She?”

Poroia seems to be worried about Emily since she was attacked and is a female as well.

“Ah, err… I’m fine. Thank you for having you help me.”

Emily bowed her head slightly as she spoke.

“This far is good enough. I will be alright…”

She began to head back into town after she finished talking. Surely Emily will be able to make it back into town after only an hour of walking since she didn’t get any major injuries from the attack. It will talk her 15 minutes to get out of this dangerous forest. After all this is supposed to be a highway even in the forest or out of it monster rarely appear let alone attack people. I was able to confirm the short sword Emily was using crumbled into pieces.  It looks like Emily was not accustomed to fighting with a sword. Since walking alone without a sword is rather dangerous, I gave her one of my spare swords instead. She still wouldn’t readily accept it without some persuasion.

“I don’t need it you should keep it.”

“Then this is a loan, Swords are very expendable so you don’t need to necessarily return it. You can give me something else in return. I’m an adventurer. I usually head to the Guild just about everyday. Contact me when you’re ready to repay your debt to me.”

In the long-run gain favor with an alchemist goes a long way.

“Yes, sir. I’ll return it without failure.”

Emily says that as she heads back into town.

“Then, shall we continue our departure?

The carriage began to move due to Mr. Kuresuto’s command.

Girl, Skill, Magical Power Quantity

Actual Author’s note: Anyway, today rest
——————————————————————————————————————-
“Well then once more, I am the Headmistress Ivory Maxwell. Nice to meet you, Tsuchio-bou

The headmistress is a grandmother who wears a large robe and put up her hair together. Because there is a cane leaning on the desk, she must be able to use magic is what I’m thinking.

“Uh…. What kind of person enters this academy?”

“Anyone can join as long as they don’t have any sort of criminal record. Well, they also have to be at least 13 years old, Now that you mention it Tsuchio-bou, how old are you?”

“I am 16 years old according to the olden ways.”

“Oh, that fell short of my expectations, I thought you were about 14.”

Apparently since I’m Japanese, I seem to have a baby face. If I went to a foreign country, they probably wouldn’t sell me liquor.

“The entrance examination is in two days. Oh dear, there no need to be so worried, they’re only an inspection of your magic and skills.”

“I understand. That reminds me there was a rule stating that all students are required to stay in a dormitory right? So where will I be staying?”

“Until you get accepted, is it possible for you to stay somewhere else, considering you are getting quite a lot of money from Kisato-bou?”

“Yeah, but….do you know any inn where I’ll be able to stay together with Ruu?”

“Several places will do it. if you give them my name, they will give you various accommodation. The thing that I can help Tsuchio-bou with are just something like that, for the rest of it, please do your best.”

“Yes, thank you very much.”

*****

It seems that the inn the Headmistress introduced me to was an inn for a tamer, you could see a lot of magical beast in there. However there were quite a lot of people that look at Ruu too.

It seems that there are Stone Coin, Copper Coin, Silver Coin, Gold Coin, and White Gold Coin in the Kingdom currency. It seems that the exchange rate is 100 pieces lower coin to 1 pieces upper coin. Since staying in the inn cost 10 piece of copper coin, I think that each coin value are 10 yen; 1000 yen; 100,000 yen; 10 million yen; and 1 billion yen. It’s japanese yen exchange rate though.

For two whole days, I flew through the sky earnestly, while I practiced my magic diligently. I myself am unsure if I possess any magical capabilities, but I wont find out unless I try.

After the two days had passed, once again, I stood in front of the large gate. Besides me standing here, are many other children as well, who also passed through the gate. I also immediately go to take the examination. Alright! But I wonder, can I do it?

Even if I use a false name it would get found out, magic is really awesome thing, huh? By the way, when I read the words of this world they were automatically converted into Japanese language inside my head. And when I wrote in Japanese, the words automatically changed into the characters of this world. Hurray, for convenient-ism!

“Please wait in the lobby, until your number is called.”

My number is… 143 huh? Is that mean I’m the 143th person? Shall I wait in the bench? When I sit down in a bench, Ruu also sits near me and then she put her head in my knee. Because recently I always caressing her head all the time, she seems to like it. Oh well, since she is cute when she close her eyes and *purrr* her throat rumbling so it’s fine.

T/N: she really likes a cat huh? – indra13

While waiting for my turn leisurely, the people in here are increasing one by one. While the bench around me keep on being filled with people chattering happily making an acquaintance, I keep on caressing Ruu. ……Why no one coming to the bench that I sitting on huh?…… Maybe because Ruu are scary huh?….. Just why?

“stare…..”

“…”

“stare…”

A small girl is intensely staring at me and Ruu from some time ago. Her abundant hair are being let out in front of both of her shoulder and it’s tied up with a black ribbon. Her height is quite short, It’s not even 140cm I guess huh?

“…Do you want to touch her?”

“Is it fine dearimasu!?”

T/N: “dearimasu” is “dear master”

T/C: no, dearimasu is a habit ending sentence like degozaru, gozaru, nyaa, etc^^ – indra13

…..huh? she says -dearimasu? Which genius professor chief inumimi girls are you?

T/N: any idea from what anime, manga, novel, or games all the character that he said came from? – indra13

“Ye, yeah. Don’t touch her head ok? Or she will bite your hands off. It’s better to caress her back from top to the bottom ok?”

“U, Understood-dearimasu…”

The girls caressing Ruu timidly. Though Ruu want to move away when the girls hand touch her, I stop her intention with my eyes. If she act violently right now, my academy live will surely become grey.

“Oooh! It’s so smooth-dearimasu.”

“That’s because I washed her yesterday.”

“It’s warmer than I though-dearimasu.”

“Is, is that so? that’s compared with what?”

This girl keeps patting Ryuu frantically. Gradually Ruu’s moods starts to worsen. If I don’t stop her soon, things could get bad.

T/N: Ruu didn’t like anyone besides her darling touching her body ^^ – indra13

“Ok, that’s the end of it”

“Yeyeaーh…”

The girls hardly separated from Ruu. *reluctantly* She separate herself from Ruu in reluctance. Ruu come to me rubbing her head to mine as if to say “praise me pra~ise me!”.

T/N: kuh… what kind of things she is? soo cuuute – indra13

“She is really tamed huh-dearimasu!”

“That’s because the way we encounter each other are intense…”

“Is that so-dearimasu? …ah, I haven’t introduce myself yet-dearimasu! I am Triss-dearimasu! A dwarf-dearimasu!”

“I am Tsuchio. Nice to meetcha.”

It looks like everyone here is only giving their basic name. I too will do the same.

“It’s my pleasure to meet you-dearimasu, Tsuchio-san!”

“Eh, -san! Isn’t it supposed to be a -dono!”

“hm? is it better to use -dono-dearimasu?”

“Well, it’s better like that I think.”

“Is that so-dearimasu? Then, from now on I will use -dono-dearimasu! It’s my pleasure to meet you Tsuchio-dono.”

T/N: I’ll explain a bit if you’re new to japan. Basically it’s a pattern for anyone that talking with -dearimasu or -degozaru as it’s ends word to refer to someone as -dono, hence Tsuchio is surprised when Tris called him “Tsuchio-san” instead of “Tsuchio-dono”.- indra13

Alright! I don’t know how, but I made it to make the honorific change into -dono. After all, if your end sentence is -arimasu, then the honorific that you should use are -dono right?!

Or rather, did she just say a dwarf right now!? Usually Dwarf girl have a small stature, an abundant hair, and well mannered, but even in this world it was also like that huh?

“Is Tsuchio-dono a tamer-dearimasu?”

“Yeah, since Triss is a dwarf, do you aiming to become a master blacksmith?”

As soon as the topic became master blacksmith, Triss face suddenly became gloomy ……Was it a taboo topic?

“…I came to learn martial arts.Because dwarves posses incredible strength.”

Her gloomy face were last only in a moment, immediately Triss was back to her smiling face. It’s likely that smithing is kind of skill that a talent let us learn I guess huh?

“I still do not know what kind of skill that I have you know. Though I think that I have [Tame] as my skill, I’m really looking forward on whether I have or not any skill other than that you know.”

“Is that so-dearimasu? …Then I will also looking forward to it-dearimasu!”

『Person with number 143rd, please go into room 11th』

It’s my turn. At last I will be able to find out my magical power amount and skill.

“Well then, I’m off. See you later, Triss. Ruu, come.”

“Ah, yes. Do your best-dearimasu, Tsuchio-dono!”

“There is nothing to do my best for, you know. Oh well, you too do your best Triss.”

With Ruu, we head towards the door with 11 on it. Everyone that sees Ruu’s distanced themselves from us as they pleases. I must do something about this, it’s not that important, but it’s for our own comfort.

T/N: I guess Tsuchio think that he must do something to make them not afraid of Ruu so that they don’t suddenly attacking that lovely Wyvern out of fear. – indra13

Because the door is only at the size of a person, I decide to have Ruu waiting for me in front of the room. Since I said to her that it’s okay to threaten anyone that come to touch her, I think no one would dare to make a move on her.

T/N: Overprotective husband, aren’t you? – indra13

When I knock the door,

“Please come in”, a young woman voice came out of it. When I enter the room, A beautiful woman-san who  wear a glasses and gathered her hair in the rear side with a barrette sitting across the desk on the opposite sides. There were a big crystal and A4 sized paper on top of the desk.

“Please sit here.”

I sit down in the chair that’s in front of the desk. What’s this?, this somehow looks similar to a job interview. I could feel the tension.

“First, I will examine your skill, please place your hand on this piece of paper.”

I placed my hand on the paper as previously instructed. After waiting a short while, a figures one after another began to appear on the piece of paper.

“Thi, this is?”

“Because the figures order in which they came out are fast, this means that your talent are still sleeping inside you. In addition to that, the figures color are thick, this means that the talent that sleeping in you are great. We should know what skill you have by the figures shape. This is…. [Tame] huh. Since the colors are thick, it seems to be quite strong huh.”

“Is that so?. Ah, the next one is coming out.”

A different figure came out this time. The color this time is surely lighter than [Tame].

“This is…. [Caress]?”

“Yes?”

“It seems that you’re skillful in caressing. Are you skillful in it?”

“You might say it like that ….Since I caress quite well.”

“It’s like that. Skinship is also important if you want to tame a magical beast, so I think it’s a convenient skill you know.”

[Caress] she said…. Something like that are also a skill huh? ….Nah, probably I grind it too much that it became a skill right?

“Are there still any skill that not yet show up?”

“There are a talent sleeping in everyone you know. The average is three talent for each person I guess?”

“Haaah…. Then with this I’m done huh?”

The figure that came out was slightly lighter than [Caress]. No matter how I caressed something it will feels good you know….

“This is… [Magical Hands]”

“[Magical Hands]? What is that?”

“You will be able to manage magical power with your own hands. Have you experience it?”

….When Ruu use [Body Enhancement Magic], I was able to move her magical power and further strengthen her enhancement power. That must be it.

“Perhaps, I have experience it.”

“That’s good if you have. Since if you aware of it then it won’t become a problem when you want to use it.”

“Is, is that so?”

“…..but, [Caress] and [Magical Hands]? …I can say that it’s quite a brutal, ah, no, a powerful combination.”

“Yes?”

“It’s only a slip of tongue ok?”

“Ah, there seems to be more skill shown up. Several of the talents are no more than average.”

“Don’t say it like the rest of all of my talents are below average please….”

“Excuse me, it’s my habits. The next one that came out are [Support Magic]. Since the colors are not that thick, it’s better if you not expect it too much.”

“Just like I said before, why the heck did you have to say it in the way that could crush my heart huh! Did I ever hurt you or something!?”

“Excuse me, it’s my habits.”

“Cliché!?”

“Cli… what?”

“N,no. It’s nothing.”

T/N: This conversation are referencing to all the scene where the mc are talking with a girl’s that love talking mean to him, the only example that I can tell you right now are in LN titled Bokushinu v1 ch1 translated by Heretic Translation and the conversation exchange between Ms. Clarisse and Regis from Altina by Skythewood translation – indra13

Do the earth specific phrase won’t get through to the people here? I need to pay attention to what I say because it’s a bother to treated like some oddball.

“With that it’s the end of your skill examination, let’s move on to your magical power quantity examination. Please put your hands on this crystal ball.”
I take out my hands to put them on the crystal ball. I guess if this is a novel story then this is the time that show up that I got an absurd amount of magical power and the crystal ball will be broken up, but…. I don’t have any expectation for such thing to happen you know. After all, there are no magical power in earth right? And also I’m an earthling. Therefore I don’t have any magical power. What a magnificent syllogism!

In the first place, it was a miraculous thing for me to be able to tame Ruu. The next thing that make me able to tame her are my effort.

T/N: This is a novel though, Tsuchio ^^ – indra13

I placed my hand on the crystal ball, after a while the center of the crystal ball began to shine dimly. The light is so weak that it’s like it can disappear at any time. A~h, as expected huh? Live won’t always go smoothly you know.

“…It’s quite scarce, I guess it’s better to say that it’s 0 huh? My condolences.”

“Thanks for your sympathy.”

“You are not surprised by it huh? For it to be this scarce, it’s actually an abnormal thing you know. If your magical power quantity are like this then it will be hard for you to master even a shabby support magic you know. Moreover, it will be considerable harsh for you to use magical beast in a fight with only this few magical power…”

“That’s alright, since I already expected it to be like that.”

“Is that so? Well, since it’s not exactly 0 then you will still be able to use [Magical Hands]. Please do your utmost best from now on since there is also a possibility for it to increase.”

“I will surely do my best since I want to get stronger after all you know. I won’t be able to become a tamer if I’m not strong, even if by chance I become a tamer, but if I were to be a weak person then it’s gonna be an inexcusable thing for me. I will become a worthless master if that were to happens.”

“I will give up on it if it’s me.”

“Right? That’s why I will do my best to become stronger. And I also want to know what I can do in here.”

“(In here?) ….What do you mean by that?”

“It’s a secret. I’m too embarrassed to say it. Well then, thank you very much for your help.”

I said that and leave the room. Well then, since I have made Ruu waiting for me I’d better caress her a lot. Since it seems that I have it as my talent you know. Caress, caress, and keep on caressing so that my talent will grow! If I caressing them even a magical beast will be madly in love with me! …Maybe a girls will to huh?

T/N: You wish! -_- – indra13

*****

Tris wasn’t in the Lobby. Probably, it’s likely for her to be called for an examination. When I returned to the reception desk, I was given a dormitory key and a metal plate that have some number written on it. I’m told to let Ruu live at the Magical Beast Hut.This metal plate seems to be the key for the Hut. Perhaps it was made by a magic. Convenient huh.

First I must take Ruu to the Magical Beast Hut. While I searching for a plank that have the same number with the metal plate, I saw a wolf and an enormous snake in the corner of the Hut. Ah, this is huh?

“Ruu from now on this is your nest. When I am not around, you will spend your time here.”

“Guru.”

Ruu obediently goes inside the room. Oh, I thought she would show more resistance… It’s good for her to be unusually obedient.

“Well then…. are you going to obediently lie down and sleep?”

“Guru?”

When I’m about to go out, Ruu bite my clothes hemp to stop me from doing that. Just like that *drag* she pulled me in to the center of the room to coil me. This fellow, she won’t let me leave her huh? ….Because we always sleep together until now, for Ruu it’s an obvious thing that we would also sleep together now. However!

T/N: is that mean both of you sleep together in the inn before? – indra13

“Hear me Ruu. I won’t sleep in here. Ruu are the only one that will sleep here.”

“Guru!? Gurururu!”

“Noo, Noooo!”, even if you say it like that… It’s already been decided, I’m also want to sleep at some soft bed…. Though Ruu is soft, she is still lose to a bed.

“Gururu …”

“This is just a place where you’ll sleep at night. During the day we’ll be together…. it should be. So from now on please sleep here, okay?“

“Guru…”

Though she considerably reluctant to it, it seems that she is more hate to trouble me than be separated from me for awhile. She separate herself from me while almost cried ….Somehow, I’ve become a detestable guy huh….

T/N: Damn you Tsuchio! How dare you to make that lovely wyvern cry! – indra13

“Once I put my baggage in the dorm, I’ll come back here, ok? I’ll come to see you first thing in the morning, ok? That’s why, please wait for me in here for a while ok?”

“Guruu…”

When I locked the door, a transparent film like membrane covers the entrance of the room. When I try to touch it *ZAP* it shocked me. The heck, is this an electric fence or something!?…..

“I’ll be back soon. So behave yourself while I’m gone.”

“Gururu…”

T/N Awww….. poor girl.-afro

Ruu turns around, and begins coiling herself. I will come back as soon as possible……

TL note: The dialogue and some of the translations in here are a bit rough, so please forgive me for that. I did the best with what the MT gave me. Other than that Enjoy!

The next day, I went to the Adventurer’s Guild receptionist desk to confirm that I will accept the previous request, but found a strange guy. He kept walking back and forth between the request board and the receptionist desk, he also wore a slightly dirty robe that hid his face.

“Who is that person?”

After staring at this person for a while, I decided to look at their status.

******************************************

Emily [emī]  Lvl. 3  Alchemist  Age: 14

Endurance: 200

Strength: 35

Agility: 45

Intelligence: 90

Luck: 75

『Curse of Production Obstruction(or)Inhibition』

Effect: A curse is applied to the things produced from this individual.

Target: Herself (Manufacturing)

*******************************************

Ara, it’s a 『Curse』.

However the job category of an Alchemist is rarely seen in the Adventurers Guild. An Alchemist is a type of job that allows them to create anything. Alchemist can make necessary [Potions] which every adventurer needs whether its to cure an abnormal state or a buff, and it’s possible for them to create accessories with special effects. Alchemists can’t make weapons or armors because that is the job of a『Blacksmith master』or just old plain             『Blacksmith』. Alchemists are able to give weapons and armors special effects after they have been made. Needless to say, the effects you get are only slightly better than the ones you already get if they were made by a 『Blacksmith master』.

“However, having a [Curse] that affects production quality seems to be fatal.”

Initially an Alchemist is not a combat related job, but since that curse affects their livelihood it would help explain why they’re currently at the Adventurers Guild. But then again those with a [Curse] are rarely seen at an Adventurer’s Guild.

“Excuse me, are you an adventurer?”

“Indeed I am. Are you different?”

Emily seemed to be surprised by my response. I don’t know why she thought I wasn’t an adventurer.

“If you end up exhibiting such strange behavior in the Adventurer’s Guild, one would think you’re a suspicious person.”

“But, might you perhaps be an adventurer from another town.”

“I don’t look like an Adventurer since I came from another city. With that being said I probably look like a rookie adventurer.”

Usually adventurers start “adventuring” in the place they were born in. They do this on purpose because they usually don’t get any benefits starting out in another town anyways. Also if they do their adventuring near the town they were born in most of the monsters have already been seen or heard of at least. Then in order to test their skills when they become full fledged adventurers they go to other towns and try their luck. In other words the person in front of me can’t be an adventurer from somewhere else. I decided to talk to Emily, while thinking that it has only been about 1 month since I became an adventurer.

“Oh is that so. Well I’m not technically an adventurer yet since I haven’t finished my registration yet.”

“Really? If that’s the case then you can go register yourself at the receptionist desk, because you won’t be able to choose a request until you join.”

I feel like an annoying person trying to tell her what to do.

“Thank you very much. Where is the registration desk ?”

“Over there by the receptionist desk.”

I pointed over to the counter where Lily was at.

“You’ll need to pay 10 Gale [Yen] for the registration fee, so be prepared to do so.”

“But I don’t have any money!”

Wait a minute, what kind of country-bumpkin sheltered female are you. Wait, isn’t it rude for me a person from a different world to think like this ?

“You only have to pay for the registration fee. There is no end to the people who end up registering half-heartedly, even the guild card isn’t free.”

I think that it’s a fair price to only pay 10 yen for both registering and getting a guild card. But if you want to get your card reissued it will cost 100 yen(Gale).

“It can’t be. Even with all the money I have on me I only have 10 yen(Gale).”

Don’t junior high school students carry roughly 1,000 yen on hand.

“Well, you could give up on a request if you find it impossible to complete.”

“I, I absolutely need the money!”

“How much?”

“…15 Gold coins.”

“Well, that’s impossible. As far as I know the only way you could get 15 gold coins fast will have to be if you were able to complete a dragon subjugation, since that is the only request with 15 gold coins as the reward.”

“I heard that Adventurers could earn money. Its okay if I don’t earn all of the money at once!”

This girl, dreams of being an adventurer.

“Even if you compare the earnings of first-rate adventurers to average ones, they certainly make more. But, that isn’t the only reason they earn that much money.”

Even though I have just started adventuring, my body still aches from it. The most I can make a day even with my “cheat” abilities is about 1 gold.

“B,but, I know I will.”

“Well, in the case of killing monsters, its feasible if you claim the reward and sell off any loot you gain from killing them.”

But I think 15 gold is too much.

“I understand. Thank you very much.”

Emily turns and walks toward the receptionist desk looking uneasy. Is she alright ?

“This might sound unreasonable. I won’t be back here for about 10 days due to work, when I do come back I would like to make arrangements with you.”

I faced her, and waved my hand towards Emily where she lowered her head, and I left the Adventurer’s guild. I’ll be leaving for Wereo village tomorrow. It is necessary to begin making preparations. I already made previous arrangements with Aria, in order to hasten our travelling.

 

Divine Protection of Many Gods Episode 8

Takami no Kago Episode 8

The merchants office was located near the West Gate of the city, just off the main street.

『Kuresuto Company』

“Is this it ?”

The town of Brett is in the center of the Angle continent, but the capital city of the Angle kingdom is on the west side of the continent.

The East side of the Angle kingdom is treated as a frontier, so it clearly has more monsters inhabiting this side as well has far more monster’s surprise attacks. The west side of Brett is mostly where all of the noble live in.

I don’t see anything wrong with the high-class [Jade Fabric] goods.

“Master, the guard in the merchant’s office is glaring at us.”

Aria looks like she was half-crying when she said that. I have never set foot in the West District where nobles live in. Probably because of anxiety Aria grabbed my sleeve and didn’t let go of it.

“It’s all right. we are probably stronger than that guy over there anyways.”

I confirmed the guards stat’s, and their levels are 2 and 3.

If they had such strong guards in the first place, why would they request the Adventurer’s Guild for help. Do I have to make a request to the guards in order to speak with the merchant.

“Um, we’re the people sent from the Adventurer’s Guild. Is Mr. Kuresuto home?”

The clients name was Kuresuto from the Kuresuto Company. In other words he would be the owner of this place, and the guards employer.

“Why do you need to speak with Mr. Kuresuto?”

Guard A seems to be looking down on me with a very condescending attitude. Guard B is only glaring at me with his eyes, what’s up with these hostile guys.

“I am here about the request Mr. Kuresuto made to the Adventurer’s Guild. I asked you if I could see him because I wanted to confirm this matter.”

From a civilian’s standpoint, this merchant is very wealthy and does business with prominent aristocrats. I should listen to what he has to say before I open my mouth. I shouldn’t really worry about this, except I need to be polite when I have to get my point across. In a very Japanese-like manner Hibiki politely spoke to the guards.

“I didn’t hear anything about a visitor coming. Go home.”

Guard A is trying to force me to comply using his intimidation. I’ll go home if they continue to be this persistent.  I decided that would be the best course of action.

“Anyway, since I just rushed over here, you might have not been informed that I was coming. I’m sorry, but could you please check again?”

I can only hope that they pass this on to Mr. Kuresuto if they refuse to check, because I’m going home if they refuse. In a moment guard A declared without any hesitation.

“I won’t do it now. Come back later.”

“I see well then, please forgive my impoliteness for today.”

Since he said so, I turned around and was about to head home.

“Wait a minute. Are you the adventurers sent by the Adventurer’s Guild?”

There was a stout man around the age of 40, with nicely tailored clothes on, standing at the entrance of the building.」

“I’m sorry about what happened to you earlier. Even though you’re an adventurer you’re as polite as a noble. On the contrary, as for our guards.”

This man was glaring at guard A while he said that. When guard A noticed the glare his face went pale.

“I, I’m very sorry sir!”

“I’ve had enough already. You will receive your punishment later. I was almost about to lose this relationship with this adventurer directly because of your actions.”

“Th, This can’t be!?”

“Shut up. Be silent and go stand over there until I say otherwise!”

After that guy said that, he urgently welcomed Hibiki into his mansion.

The inside of this house seemed to be overflowing with expensive furniture and priceless goods. However, that way it was all arranged inside made it not look distasteful. The inside of this house almost give off a feeling of nobility in it. Just like that Aria and I were guided down the hallway into the meeting room, and were quickly prompted to sit down on a sofa to begin the interview.

“This is the Kuresuto Company’s chamber of commerce. First of all, I have to apologize about the way you were treated earlier.”

“Er, don’t worry about it. He was just doing his job properly.”

“I’m happy when you say it like that.”

“I would like to talk about the matter you were making a request about more than that.”

I said that, and Kuresuto[Crest] nodded.

“The request states that we have to guard your wagon carrying your goods. Which will take approximately 3 days for us to reach Wereo village. We’ll stay in Wereo village for 2 days, while you purchase the good, and escort you back to Brett.

It’s about 6 days long round trip. Making it 8 days if we included the 2 days we stay there. It’s our first time traveling, but I think we’ll be alright.

“I understand what the request is saying. Although there are things I would like to confirm with you, the most important being. We are looking forward into making Brett our base of operations. Even if we go with you to Wereo village, we don’t know anything about it, or even where it’s even located.”

Mr. Kuresuto [Crest] made a gesture as if he was thinking, then slightly nodded. I don’t think he’ll have any problems.

“I have someone from Wereo village right here in my chamber of commerce. We could ask her to guide us while we are traveling so there wouldn’t be any problems.”

“I understand. But so far you have judged 4 pairs of adventurers so far and they have all failed, but how would you say we did?”

I only said that because I hate being rejected. And I would rather confirm it ahead of time as opposed to waiting.

“Of course. If an adventurer has a [Divine Gift] and acts just like nobles, then there’s no problem.”

Hmm, looks like the four set of adventurer’s that came before me were all disqualified for arguing with the guard outside. I think the test was to see if you could act like a nobleman instead of acting like a barbarian, while talking to the guard. It is also most likely that the guards outside were deliberately instructed to act like that to any adventurers coming for this request. Looks like they really don’t want anyone to be causing problems for them in Wereo Village. Even though Mr.  Kuresuto [Crest] seems like a good person, he is still a very wealthy merchant, who also deals with a lot of prominent noble figures, so he obviously doesn’t want anyone causing trouble for him.

Throughout this discussion Aria hasn’t said one word, except for when she made a difficult face.

“Are you okay Aria?”

When I talked to her, she made a relieved face and affectionately clung to me.

“What a relief. You’re still the same as ever master.”

“Yeah?”

She seems to have been confused because of the way I was talking drastically changed especially when I was speaking to the guards. It seems my humble way of talking looked rather ridiculous to Aria. I thought about what happened and decided to explain to Aria that depending on the person I was talking to, I had to adapt my speech to fit them and the conversation. Looks like she still doesn’t understand, looks like we should go to bed soon.

“At times it is necessary to humble oneself!”

The next morning I could see Aria talking to Lily about what I explained to her last night. I told you, it was a secret last night.

Divine Protection of Many Gods Episode 7

Takami no Kago Episode 7

On the same day as Aria’s first mission, we returned to the Adventurer’s Guild once we left the forest, we then received more money than I thought we would receive. Up until now we secluded ourselves in the forest from dawn till sunset slaying about 100 monsters or so. After we sold our the best monster loot, and collected our reward money of 2-3 large silver coins (roughly 20-300,00 yen). I calculated that today’s earning was 5 large silver coins, approximately double what the minimum payment usually is. Well, that’s obvious because there were two of us hunting instead of 1 person by themselves. Also, because we hunted a lot of monsters over a large span of time helped us.

“Aria’s fast movements helped us greatly.”

Aria looked like she was about to cry from what I just said.

“I, I’m sorry. I hope I didn’t say anything to make you cry.”

I tried to quickly apologize, thinking I made Aria cry.

“This is the first time anyone has said I was useful.”

Even Though she was crying, Aria still looked beautiful. For several days we decided to make good use of our [Slime Fountain] hunting grounds, as we continued to hunt monster around or near it. Our concern about the cost of our living expenses quickly disappeared once we completed more monster subjugations, even now I’m very happy living with Aria. Our happy days continued for 10 day, in which we gained several levels, then we received word from the Adventurer’s Guild requesting two people.

“Escort a merchant?”

The Adventurer’s Guild receptionist Lily told us about a mission that had to be absolutely completed, so we listened to Lily who told us the details.

“It’s about three days from here by horse-drawn carriage, you’ll travel to Wereo village and return to Bureto. I would like you both to be the bodyguards for that time.”

“But, why us?”

It hasn’t even been 1 month since Aria and I registered as adventurers, so why would they request a novice party like us. I feel like there is something more to this that she isn’t telling us.

“Actually this was requested to us by the merchants, they said that a party with a couple of adventurers with a [Divine Gift] would be best.”

“Why would they make such a demand?”

I see that there’s demand for people with a [Divine Gift]. Aren’t there other adventurers in this city, with decent [Divine Abilities]. They could pick anyone with one. Yet, why are they specifying that they want a small party for this quest. There’s something suspicious about this.

“For that reason a few people in this town decided that you two would be best.”

“Do what exactly?”

“Protect the merchant as he buys that village’s specialty, [Jade Textile] and few other things.”

“[Jade Textile]!?”

Aria looks like she got excited by that.

“What’s so good about it?”

These two can’t seem to comprehend what I just said, so they both let out a sigh.

“[Jade Textile] is silk made from silk worms that have eaten magically infused pellets, so the fabric has magical properties.”

“Oh really. You seem well informed.”

“[Jade Textile] is a very popular commodity among women. Clothes made from [Jade Silk] are said to be worth several gold coins.”

You wearing 1 million yens worth of fabric, amazing.”

“I take it that only Were village produces it?”

Although I think they should increase their supplies since there’s such a high demand but…

“Their manufacturing methods are a secret, They say that you can’t make Jade Silk anywhere else.”

First of all, don’t you have to feed the silkworms these gems first? Or is it extremely hard to make them? They’re monopolizing this, I guess this country doesn’t have laws against this yet.

“Because of this you can’t bring a lot of people to this place. This request came to us because the usual adventurers this merchant always hires are all dead.”

I see, now that’s why he requested for a small party to protect him, since the request came at short noticed. I guess that’s reasonable. Meanwhile Aria is humbly looking at me, quietly hoping that I accept this request. I guess she really want to see the [Jade Textile] since it’s written all over her face.

“Lily, is it possible to meet the client first?”

“Yes, of course. I see you want to ask them a few questions before officially accepting this.”

“I want to meet the client first, and If I don’t like that the mission entails, then I won’t accept it.”

That way I can refuse this quest if the merchant doesn’t like us. The quest’s reward isn’t too bad either, the advance payment is 2 big silver coins, and upon completion you get 8 large silver coins. Also there are additional rewards, considering the amount of times we might get attacked by monsters, the money we would get from selling their loot would also give us more money as well. Because of the additional rewards, we will earn money to the utmost.

“I understand. I would like to only have the interview for now.”

“Aha. I make that request. It would be nice if Hibiki does it.”

Lily looked relieved as she sighed.

“Were you that concerned about it?”

I was curious so I asked Lily.”

“Yeah I already asked several other parties, but they all declined the request.”

I see, that why you didn’t ask us first, since even if we have [Divine Gifts] we’re still inexperienced adventurers.

“Well, I still might end up not accepting the request. By the way how many pairs did you ask before us?”

“ 4 pairs, you guys will be the 5th group I’ve asked so far. Eventually we’ll have a list of everyone who at least has a [Divine Gift]. I hope you do well. Please go to this residency this afternoon, since you wanted to interview the client.”

I wonder why the client who only hires senior-adventurers, would suddenly put out a notice accepting novice adventurers for this task. Even though I was a little nervous Aria and I made our way to the client’s office.

—————————————————————————————-

Translator Note:

Also if you want go back to episode 4 and read a comment by the user: Xias, I think you’ll all enjoy reading what he has to say since it makes a lot of sense and enlightened me surprisingly.

Also, I have to apologize at a points while MT this, I got very confused since it typically happens while the characters were talking in this chapter. So if you got confused at some points that is my fault sorry.

Divine Protection of Many Gods Episode 6

Takami no Kago Episode 6

In a forest, approximately 15 minute walk away from the city of Bureto. This is the place where the Sharp Wolves from the subjugation quest live. That being said, monster typically attack people who enter this forest. Even now I had to deal with monster.

“Ahhh!”

Aria slashes at the slime with her sword, thus cutting the slime in two.

“Good job.”

As I was congratulating Aria, she picked up [Liver of Slime], which probably was the slimes item drop.

“Right, thank you.”

“That fight went well.”

Even now as monsters try attacking us, Aria cutts them all down with a single strike.

“These monsters a definitely weaker than the ones attacking my village. It still builds character.”

Aria replied happily. Its probably because Aria was already very strong.

“I see. But don’t let your guard down even if you see a Sharp Wolf.”

“Yeah, I heard Sharp Wolves are very fast, and their offensive power isn’t one to joke with either. But I also heard slime and worm monsters are the weakest.”

Aria searches her surroundings with diligence. Aria notices that there isn’t another living creatures presence in our vicinity. It would be in our best interest to check our current traveling status.

“But, my body feels very light. Back in my village when I fought a slime, my breathing became very ragged.”

“Well, I did remove your [Curse].”

“Is that so?”

I thought so,  Aria did not know the true nature of her [Curse] after all.

Aria’s curse caused all of her stats to decrease.

Now that her [Curse] has been removed, and her stats have improved thanks to her [Divine Ability]. No wonder her body feels different, since it’s no longer being restricted.

“My [Curse] was really removed.”

“You still don’t believe me?”

“No, master wouldn’t tell me lies. However, I’ve always had this [Curse] since I was born…”

It’s true she was born with the [Curse], and had to live with it for more than 10 years. And I’m the guy who told her just yesterday that her [Curse] was removed. Obviously that would sound like a suspicious story. At-least Aria’s faith in me has gradually risen.

“But I’m convinced now. Master is a wonderful person after all.”

Ara, Aria looking at me beaming with respect. I think I just won over her trust.

“For now let’s head a little deeper into the forest. Aria tell me if you see any creature movements.”

“I certainly will.”

“There’s something over there.”

Aria replied as we continued to advance, now more slowly than before.

“What is it? A monster?”

“I don’t know. But there are signs of a living creature here.”

I understood what she meant, so we proceeded with extreme caution. There was something off about this place.

“What’s that?”

Looks like there’s a liquid coming out like spring water, but it’s definitely not water. The thick liquid gathered in a pool.

“Its a [Slime Fountain]. This is the first time I’ve seen one.”

“Slime Fountain?”

Aria replies like a parrot.

“They say [Slime Fountains] appear in dark forests with excess magic power.”

The [Slime Fountain] keeps producing slime as its name states. And other monsters obtain magic powers from eating it. The cells of a monster start to rapidly change, once they’re infused with magic. In other words the [Slime Fountain produces slime, other monster eat the slime and are baited into eating from the fountain, and get magic in the process.

“That means monsters gather around [Slime Fountains].”

“So an adventure has to have confidence in themselves, because many end up stalking this [Slime Fountains] waiting for monster to appear.”

“Does that mean there are others here besides us?”

“No, there doesn’t seem to be anyone around us. It’s either that or this spring was made recently, so no one has found it yet.”

“Indeed, so if we wait here does that mean Sharp Wolves will appear too.”

“Yes, because Sharp Wolves are also monsters that eat slimes.”

Speak of the devil a Sharp Wolf has appeared, just after I finished talking.

A Sharp Wolf, just like its name suggests, it has very quick and sharp moments. In comparison this Sharp Wolf is about two sizes larger than an average one, a single attack from it is comparable to that of a bears. In fact these guys often attack in packs just like regular wolves. Therefore, a Sharp Wolf is often referred to as a the 『Rookie Killer』.

*Grrrrrr*

The Sharp Wolf’s growl quickly shut me and Aria up, but we noticed it had 17 health. Usually in less than a week a rookie adventurer would’ve been killed. After all there are very few cases where a novice adventurer challenges a pack of [Sharp Wolves]. It’s common sense to form a party, and hunt them when your party has greater numbers. However, in this case just with two people would be insane.

“Attack!”

And like that Jinno killed the nearest [Sharp Wolf], in one attack still raising his voice. Aria’s speed greatly surpassed that of the [Sharp Wolf]. Both of them possessed strength that defied common sense. By overwhelming the [Sharp Wolfs] with their superior stats, Jinno and Aria were able to make quick work of their numbers.

“Good, we defeated them all.”

I said that as I defeated the [Sharp Wolfs] leader, laying his body down.

“Yes, I was able to handle the other [Sharp Wolfs] as well. They were a little fast, but I’m alright.”

Aria answered as she collected the [Sharp Wolfs] dropped items, the [Sharp Wolfs Fang]. With this fight Jinno was convinced. Aria is considerably strong.

“I don’t think the [Sharp Wolfs] were much of a threat at all.”

“That’s because you’re insanely strong Aria.”

Without any hesitation, she is definitely strong! I ignore my own faults and evaluate Aria.

“We completed the monster subjugation request right, since it only asked us to kill 10.”

“Let’s get a few more, I still want to fight.”

“I understand. Let’s continue hunting until sunset.”

Today we continued fighting monsters looking for more [Sharp Wolfs] until we were exhausted, but still continued to mow down other monsters in our path. After getting our money from the guild, we went back to the Inn to confirm whether our statuses had risen.

Divine Protection of Many Gods Episode 5

Takami no Kago Episode 5

After our night together, the next day we first went to an equipment shop to buy aria’s equipment.

“Anyway, what collar would you like?”

Several collars are lined up in front of me.

“Uh, I don’t know, so why don’t you choose one master.”

“Are you sure?”

“Yes, because I want to wear the collar master chooses.”

She’s such a good girl. For now I’ll choose a collar with good defensive abilities for Aria to wear.

“Is this one alright?”

“Yes, Thank you.”

“Then here put it on me.”

After receiving confirmation from Aria, I went behind her to put the collar (necklace) on her. Holding it firmly in my hands I place it around Aria’s neck. I then secured the red leather collar around her neck. It then magically configure itself to fit Aria’s neck perfectly, without a doubt this is an accessory. When I checked the status of the collar, I saw that it changed to [Aria’s Collar].

“With this, I’m now master’s slave entirely.”

I could help but be happy for Aria who said that so cheerfully, probably because she had no one to relate to, with the exception of her dead parents. And to be completely honest, I’m glad she feels relaxed around me. Even if I am the only person in this world, I can’t help but feel at peace with her as my companion.

For my personal equipment I have similar l『Leather armor』『Leather shoes』『Leather gauntlet』,『Iron Sword』, 『Wooden Shield』.

I bought the whole set for 5 big silver coins. Aria’s looked worried seeing this.

“Um master, will I be safe entering the guild?”

She seemed to be nervously thinking about it. They’ll probably still be worried about her [Curse]

“Its okay. We’ll just go to the guild next.”

And so we left the equipment shop.

“Now that I think about it, have you fought any monster Aria?”

I listened waiting for her response.

“Ah yes, because monsters often came to our village, when they left the forest.”

I wonder if your level rises when you fight.

“Is it alright if I wear my equipment.”

Whatever, it will probably be alright.

Even if I look at their stats, they seem strong enough to me.

“Ah, this is a pain wearing this even if its necessary.”

While I was thinking out-loud, we arrived at the Adventurer’s Guild.

“Welcome. Is that you Jinno. Who’s the girl with you?”

The person that called out to me was a beautiful women behind the counter. Her name is Lily, she’s the one who helped me get registered her at first, and I’m greatly indebted to her.

“Hello Lily. This is Aria. She going to become a member of my party. Aria, meet Lilly. She works in this guild, so it’s best not to offend her, alright.”

I introduced both of them as we approached Lilly’s reception desk.

“Ah, um. Please take care of me.”

Once again Aria did a polite bow after saying that.

“Okay will do.”

Lily answered while waving her hand. After that she briefly glared at me. Did I do something to offend her, I’m scared.

“For now, I would like to get Aria registered.”

I asked Lily while giving her a 1 large copper coin registration fee.

“Hai,Hai. Is Aria you slave since she’s wearing a collar. If that’s the case, then Aria write your name here, and Jinno put your name in the column for master.”

That’s what Lily said after glancing at Aria’s collar for a moment.

I don’t know what to say, since it’s quite common for adventurers to have slave in their parties. They usually have to carry extra luggage, disarm dangerous dungeon traps, and be used as a meat shield while their master runs away.

“Here you go. This is your Guild registration card.”

“Oh, thank you very much.”

Aria grabbed the guild card with her hand. She looks over her guild card timidly. The guild card uses magic, but is made out of some weird metal. It display her personal identification, monster subjugation history, as well as various other things. And on the card is doesn’t say [Curse] anywhere on it. Aria looks at me once she understood what that meant. I gave her a nod to show my own confirmation.

“Well, Aria for our first mission, is there anything you want to do?”

Although I wanted to start out with a small monster subjugation request first, but if Aria is afraid, I’ll have to take things slow with her. Even though Aria shows me a face full of determination, I know she’s still very nervous mentally.

“I would like to receive the Sharp Wolf subjugation request.”

I heard her say Sharp Wolf, as I look at Aria with astonishment she’s grinning from ear to ear. Everyone looks at us. Aria who noticed everyone staring at us, looks at me with her head to one side puzzled.

“As expected of a member of Jinno’s party.”

“Ah, I don’t know about this Aria.”

“Ara, is that a no?”

“???”

Lily who saw Aria’s puzzled face, began to speak.

“His first mission was also a subjugation of Sharp Wolves.”

“Is that so?”

For an Adventurer Sharp Wolves are a gateway for inexperienced. But why is Lily smirking.

“ I was so surprised when he came back that evening with the material from 50 sharp wolf bodies.”

T/N: [basically proof as to show you killed them]

“50 bodies?”

“That’s just because I accidentally found a pack of them.”

I quickly tried to make an excuse.

“Even if someone found a pack of 50 Sharp Wolves, not even a mid-tier(class) adventure would fight with them.”

Aria also noded in agreement. Which side are you on, mine or hers.

“It just kinda happened by chance.”

It was thanks to my [Divine Protection], I was able to strengthen my stats and sword, which helped me kill 50 Sharp Wolves. Even though I finished hunting the 50 Sharp Wolves in an hour while running around, still even with an [Ability] it would be abnormal for an adventurer’s first time.

“ I knew it, master sure is amazing.”

Aria’s eyes are brimming with respect.

“Yeah, if you go with him a Sharp Wolf would be nothing in comparison. Gambatte.”

T/N: Every now and again ill leave the romanji Japanese word in because that English counterpart feels like it takes away the meaning. Anyways if you have ever watched Anime you would know these words by now.

“Yes, I’ll do my best.”

Thus, we left to begin my first mission with Aria.
