“First” POV chapter is out guys! Check it out:
I will be leaving the links on the TOC, according to the chapters. Lots of thanks to the translator :D!
Btw, this chapter was complicated and had a lot of terms I didn’t know, that’s why it took me longer. Coupled with exams, which will soon finish, I got a headache. By next week I will be returning to normal schedule.
“First of all, I am the true Adventurer Guild master. Or more like, I was the one who founded it. A thousand years ago that is” (Root)
Root reveals the founding of the Adventurer Guild with a serious look. Tomoe and I show our surprise in our voice, but Mio seems to not be that interested, she doesn’t show much reaction at all.
“I was taught the concept by an otherworldler just like Makoto-kun you see. Well, I had some plans of my own in it too, but I proposed the idea to the Goddess and became the one in charge. She thought of the guild as a system that would make hyumans stronger, a really simple way of thinking. She didn’t reject the idea” (Root)
Plans of his own. Those are words that interest me. Also, otherworldler. As expected, the heroes and I are not the first victims of that Goddess.
If he says one thousand years ago, does that mean when Japan was in the Heian era? Could it be in the era of Fujiwara Michinaga? N? Something bothers me. What could it be?
“In those days, I thought of the structure of the guild diligently. And the otherworldler that taught me the general concept, well, he was my first husband. I heard a lot of stories from him, and while having fun, we structured the system. Right, if we were to compare my mental state at that time, it would be like the one Tomoe is in currently. Anyways, learning about his concept, studying, and reproducing it, was so fun” (Root)
Yeah, I agree. The case comes from a 3rd party, so I can strangely understand him.
In short, just like how Tomoe was hooked into period drama, Root was hooked into creating the Adventurer Guild. And so his world widened, and in a sense, created a dangerous organization that’s not affected by the influence of the country. When there’s the Goddess and a superior dragon backing it up, the hyumans against it must have been minimal. After all, it’s a Goddess.
“The otherworldler who became my husband, in those days was a swordsman that was sung as a hero in Elysion. And I was his wife and companion. I was also able to get the Goddess’ cooperation, so after creating the system, it permeated in the hyuman society incredibly fast. After that, by changing my appearance, I was able to become the Guild Master successively for several generations” (Root)
The founder, and the current master huh. That’s quite impressive.
“The 1st generation master wasn’t Root’s husband?” (Makoto)
Even though his husband sounds like he should be the one holding the leadership there. He didn’t want to become the master?
“Instead of those things, he was more into women and alcohol. After achieving the name of hero, he didn’t do anything resembling work. Well, being a hero itself has meaning as an idol, so in a society where the warring time passed, it is probably more convenient for him to not be doing anything” (Root)
‘In peaceful times, there’s no need for heroes’ is what he is trying to say, maybe. Certainly, even in the history that I learned in my world, there’s not much written of the heroes after their achievements in war. There should be information if you search for it, but there’s some of those heroes that just pass it leisurely. Probably because heroes, who gather people’s attention, would pose as hindrance for the powers that want to gain influence postwar.
And it seems that Root had a pretty wild sexual drive since olden times. Looks like he doesn’t think much of his husband having relationships with other women. N, maybe in those times they already had polygamy?
I feel like he will be give me an out of tangent answer, so I refrain from questioning. Let’s just hear what he has to say quietly.
“The Adventurer Guild exists in the whole world and it serves as a place to solve people’s problems. And it also provides the card that shows the level of the members and has several other functions, as well as many other benefits. And well, didn’t you find it strange?” (Root)
“The guild card that surpasses the effectiveness of some magic tools, and the word level. These are concepts that come out from games in your world, aren’t they? Then why is it that you were easily able to accept the existence of such an organization?” (Root)
“T-That is…” (Makoto)
I certainly thought that this was a game-like world. But I experienced magic before that, and I heard the terminology level and class. I thought that was the preamble of this world. Now that I think about it, I accepted it because of a strange reason.
“’Because it’s a parallel world’, isn’t that what you thought? That’s why you were able to accept things that were totally out of norm, like multistoried wooden constructions. And that’s why you accepted the word Adventurer Guild just by hearing it” (Root)
“… Yeah” (Makoto)
“Well it is true that for some reason, Makoto-kun and the other people that come from parallel worlds are able to accept the existence of an Adventurer Guild pretty easily. Even though in your world, it is obviously an organization that doesn’t exist. I think that’s pretty interesting” (Root)
‘Yup yup’, Root nods several times in an interested manner.
“I just can’t understand it. From what I have heard, it seems that you used the otherworldlers information as a standard to create the guild, but you didn’t show much interest in managing the guild, and it doesn’t seem like you wanted to be an adventurer either. To create an organization like the Adventurer Guild just to kill time, I feel like it is a bit too intricate for that” (Tomoe)
Tomoe cuts in. I see, now that she mentions it, Root didn’t mention that he wanted the guild to be made this way, or that he wanted to become an adventurer. It is natural to think that the scale of things is a bit too far for a time killer.
“No well, it was mostly for fun. A time killer. I’m a monomaniac after all. Thinking about how to make the guild and trying each thing one by one, was truly worthwhile” (Root)
His specs are uselessly high. A monomaniac that did it only to kill time, that’s pretty impressive. I am jealous.
“But, you did say you had your own plans right? What was that-ja?” (Tomoe)
“Your ears are sharp. I feel like Makoto-kun might hate me for it, so I don’t really want to say it though” (Root)
He was probably thinking about something pungent. In the first place, for a person that says he doesn’t want to talk, your face is telling me that you are brimming with motivation to talk about it. He probably wants to see my reaction.
“If you want to talk about it anyways, just say it at once. Also, don’t look at Waka. You will dirty him” (Tomoe)
Tomoe, isn’t Root an ex-colleague of yours? No, a boss-like existence? And you are already treating him like dirt. That’s nice, please continue doing so.
“Yes yes. Well, it isn’t a complicated story. Since a long time ago, the Goddess held the hyumans in favor. However, I valued the world. That’s all there’s to it” (Root)
“Don’t understand. Talk concisely. You have always liked talking in enigmatic ways. There’s no need for that now-ja” (Tomoe)
“… It is an effective way that helps the other party get interested and urges their understanding though. Oh well, got it. Meaning, the Goddess’ favor was so excessive that the hyumans would increase in numbers and grow prouder, and it was easy to predict that this would in time destroy the balance of the world. And that’s why, to restrain this, this was one of the things I did. I said this before but, more than half of the reason was because of my hobby” (Root)
“A restrain for the increase of hyumans? But the guild urges the growth of hyumans right? Isn’t it actually fostering it then?” (Tomoe)
“That’s what’s called ‘looking at the tree but missing the forest’. Listen, you receive a card when you register at the guild. This card shows you your own level and rank, but it is essentially only a numerical value to denote your current situation. When you are indicated with a rank and numerical value, hyumans tend to aim for higher heights. As expected of people that have been based of humans, they are a race with strong greed” (Root)
Well, sorry for having strong greed.
“If your level increases, you will get stronger. Of course, even without knowing that number, by defeating mamonos and doing war, you will not see the number, but it will certainly show the changes. But just by making it a simple to understand number, their enthusiasm increases. And so I, for the sake of speeding up that enthusiasm, intervened in this world’s system. Well, I only made it so that the power absorption they gain from others is increased though. In words that Makoto-kun would understand better, it is like increasing the experience gain” (Root)
Seeing the numbers will make them more enthusiastic. I think that’s true. I can’t deny it. There are times when people don’t continue to put in work because it is hard to see the improvement and that affects their spirit. But what Root did is like cheering for their growth. So where in that does it show any restrain effect?
“I see, so that’s how it is. What a devious thing to do” (Tomoe)
But it seems that Tomoe understood what Root was trying to say. Is it the difference between humans and dragons, maybe?
“In that case, there would be hyumans that get adhered to their level and rank. Levels show their own strength, and ranks would increase their benefits in the guild after all. And obviously, there would be adventurers that would spread their name by having a high level, and younglings that admire them and register in the guild. There were some that have become knights or kings and have thrived” (Root)
That’s a nice story. Work hard and succeed. I have also thought about increasing my rank aiming to get more functions from the card after all. My level doesn’t show any signs of increasing, and after becoming a merchant, my heat has cooled down a bit though.
“… You are honest huh, Makoto-kun. It makes me feel ashamed of my own shrewdness. You have the face of someone that says: hard work leading to success is a good thing” (Root)
“Is that bad? Isn’t that something anyone would think?” (Makoto)
“Fufu, let’s continue. Having their enthusiasm for achievements overflowing, wishing for promotion, a stage where money is not completely necessary and you just need physical strength and magical power to begin; the amount of adventurers aiming for that dream-like situation increased. Become stronger, famous, richer. If there were no Adventurer Guild, kindly speaking, those kind of people would work as freelancers or become ruffians. Badly speaking, spare troops for rebels. They originally don’t have much capital, so their existence was at the end of the ropes, that’s why they interpreted the guild way too favorably” (Root)
“But by enclosing a portion of the ruffians in the guild as adventurers, the ruffians that persevere in their bad doings won’t be able to act as easily. That means it would be serving as a way to better public order, isn’t it?” (Makoto)
That’s something good. I can’t see the conclusion of this.
“There’s was probably that kind effect as well. There’s nobles in the guild too after all. But what’s important is that the hyumans that only look at the future, automatically thin out” (Root)
Thin out? What does he mean? It sounds pretty dangerous though.
“Excess will destroy one’s body. Ruffians, freelancers, dreaming younglings as well. Aiming for success, they become strong, and somewhere along the way, they miss their footing at a step. Levels, ranks, rewards; there are truly a lot of adventurers that have lost their lives in the requests of the guild. Even after a thousand years, there’s not much of a difference. In those, there were some that had good luck or were uncommonly wise and were able to rise. Those are the successful ones. Their existence works as advertisement and calls more people in. For successful ones to be more than the failures is impossible in current society, so there’s uncountable amount of corpses beneath the successful ones. Nicely speaking, the ruins of dreams” (Root)
“Well, there are people who have excessive spirit and fail, but after some time people learn to balance that out. So is there really an effect like thinning them out? Cause well, the country is currently filled with hyumans, isn’t it?” (Makoto)
“And, the number of adventurers in that equation is extremely low. There are many times when just one mistake leads to death. Taking into account the demons that have held hostility since beginning of times, there are now also demi-humans who are showing opposition. Its proof that the thinning out is showing its effect. After all, no matter how you put it, numbers are power. If there were no Adventurer Guild, the current world would probably be more peaceful. In exchange of everything else disappearing except the hyumans and the subordinated demi-humans though” (Root)
“But to say that everyone goes mad with greed. Even they should know when to pull back” (Makoto)
“The ones that are able to act in that way are the successful ones, Makoto-kun. Even if they are unable to become kings. Using the guild system in an efficient way and obtaining a reasonable income, that is already a good enough success. You are free to believe me or not, but misjudging by a little step is how hyumans are. In fact, there are many people registering as adventurers every day, and yet, the amount of adventurers in itself hasn’t increased that much. If we take into account the time when the Goddess disappeared, it actually decreased. People that keep dreaming about the wasteland, labyrinths and quick cash, die in amusing ways” (Root)
No way. To think that the Adventurer Guild that serves as support for the adventurers is actually a system that fans them in order to thin them out…
“Just, I don’t want you to misunderstand. If everyone was as you said, knowing their own limits and modestly growing for the sake of their future, the guild would have contributed in that, and in a different sense, it might have served as a catalyst for a peaceful world. But in reality it didn’t happen that way, moreover, not only hyumans, but also other races began joining as well. There were several things I didn’t expect. Frankly speaking, the Adventurer Guild is an organization that supports the greed of people, for good or for bad. Fortunately, the problems of the hyuman society don’t disappear and the requests never run out. The people that don’t become adventurers and decide on going for a different path, when they see that there’s danger in the objective they are trying to accomplish, there are times when they buy the result with money. And the Adventurer Guild accepts those requests. It is truly well made right? That they are thinning out just as planned was because the adventurers mistook the way of using the guild” (Root)
It may be a bit different, but maybe it is because power is just power, it depends on the person itself to know how to use it. As a result, for the long time of one thousand years, adventurers were caught in the trap of Root and were drawn in just to burn.
“… I see. Interfering with the system of the world. Using the increase of adventurers as a whole to make a simple and irregular pact with the world huh. In short, the increase of growth begins to work after a while of becoming an adventurer” (Tomoe)
“Tomoe, your head has gotten better. That’s right. I am versed in pacts after all. I tampered with it a bit. By the time they get used to it, their growth will probably accelerate as well. It also makes it easier for them to die, so that makes it even more amusing” (Root)
“In short, increasing levels makes your base power rise right? Ability and experience, as well as talent, are not values that are taken into account in levels, is what you are trying to say. Tch, it feels vexing that I am losing to Mio, but if that’s the truth of it, there’s no real need to go through the trouble of raising it huh” (Tomoe)
“Well, that’s how it is. It varies depending on the race as well, so it doesn’t mean you can’t beat them. It is only like a reward for the strong ones by the world after all. No matter if you are a saint or a villain, as long you are able to kill someone of your same capacity, you will be able to obtain strength equal to that. It is like the complete opposite of the Goddess’ blessing, so it is better to not believe in it blindly. There’s no merit in despairing with the words talent and instinct, so I introduced the levels and even brought in the job system, as well as the function limit of the card depending on rank. I really worked hard you know. Well, right now there’s no one that has reached the highest level though. And so they are still dancing in my palms. By the way, the peak level is 65,535. My husband made a fervent speech about it being a man’s romance or something like that, so I decided to put it that way” (Root) <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/65535_(number)>
Leaving aside if I actually believe everything, I have understood most of what Root is trying to do and say. Right now Tomoe seems to be using special terminologies and words of unknown meaning as she does arguments with him, but regarding that, I practically don’t understand anything.
If you are an adventurer that has self-control, that place will support you normally.
If you go there filled with greed, as long as you don’t have incredible luck or talent, it will be a trip straight to your grave.
Or so it seems. Now that I think about it, the wasteland was exactly that kind of place. Just by arriving there, you are without a doubt the latter type of people though.
But well, now that he points that out, it is truly that way. This world gives the feeling that the Adventurer Guild already fits in, and in truth, it has continued existing for a thousand years. It is older than some countries. I don’t think there are mediation offices or enterprises that exist in Japan since the Heian Era, so I can imagine just how powerful is the Adventurer Guild. A multistory building in a wooden construction huh. It really is strange.
For example, the Merchant Guild’s information relay is being improved daily, but it doesn’t reach the level of the Adventurer Guild at all. I remember I read about a merchant that saw the Adventurer Guild and thought of making a cooperating organization and that’s how the Merchant Guild was created. It certainly does feel that the Merchant Guild which has been influenced by the country, towns and powers, actually “feels like” it’s an organization created by hyumans.
The Adventurer’s Guild abnormal speed in information relay is enough to make me doubt if there actually existed mailing system in this world. If it weren’t for the fact that the wasteland’s Adventurer Guild is a sub-branch, the existence of Tomoe and Mio could have spread through the world in a matter of days. In Tsige, Rembrandt-san helped by moving some strings in the shadow. His wife and daughters were in a precarious situation at that time, and yet he did all that. I really can’t find words to express my gratitude. After that, even the Adventurer Guild saw the achievements of Tomoe and Mio who accomplished the requests of the wasteland with no problems, and how important those two were, so they have helped in order for the information to not leak to the outside. Well, the dragon in front of us probably knows clearly about Tomoe and Mio as well as my level though. Seriously, he talks nonchalantly about information of my world. Just how many otherworldlers has he met?
This is it!! This is what has been bothering!!
“N, what is it Makoto-kun? Feel like making a pact with me? I’m so happy” (Root)
“Wrong! About your first husband! You said it was a thousand years ago right?” (Makoto)
“Yeah, I did say so. And what about it?” (Root)
“Why did a human from so long ago know about Adventurer Guilds?! Not only games, there weren’t even stories written with such settings!” (Makoto)
I was even thinking about Heian Era and Fujiwara Michinaga, and yet, why is it that I wasn’t able to notice that point?!
“Fumu, so you were bothered by that huh. It is fine to explain to you, but thinking about it in an Urashima Tarou-like way would be easier” (Root)
“Like what? It is a pretty important matter for me, so please give me the details!” (Makoto)
“Root, Waka is asking you. If it is fine to explain, then do so from the beginning” (Tomoe)
Maybe, just maybe, one of the probabilities that I have been thinking of will disappear. This is a critical moment. Telling me to think in an Urashima-like way and be happy with such an explanation, there’s no way I can accept it!
“Okay. If you go so far as to say that… Tomoe, you also asked me, so please bring out something like a blackboard. You know right, a blackboard” (Root)
“Don’t take me for a fool. The point is you need something like a board for explaining and writing tools right? Wait for a bit” (Tomoe)
“Counting on you. Doesn’t matter who, at least one of you please listen to me till the end okay? If both of you drop out, I will attack Makoto-kun (in a sexual meaning) got it? It’s a promise okay?” (Root)
What a scary thing to say. But to belittle those two… In our side we have the instinct type genius Mio-san…
She fricking went to sleep. No wonder she didn’t say anything. Looking at Mio pleasantly sleeping, I sigh.
One person has already dropped out huh.
This is the worst. There shouldn’t be a problem with Tomoe who was talking complicated stuff. Shiki might also come back anytime soon.
While waiting for Tomoe, Root praised the tea and fruits as we exchanged idle talk. I waited for what he has to say about the time inconsistency.

Thanks I must be first!!! Saaved for firo
Thank you for doing it for me.
Gracias por el capitulo!!!
Thanks for the chapter…
thanks for the translation
The real reason why Makoto’s level registers as 1: He already surpassed level 65535
That could actually be the reason… Kinda like signed binary numbers. Once you pass the max, it goes berserk (aka negative).
Or overflow, usually aside from 16 bit of number, they also add a bit in the front for determine whether it’s a plus or a minus. but having it exceeding the level mean that the usual plus (0) would become minus (1) according to the flow of binary sequence.
You could also note that he said “No matter if you are a saint or a villain, as long you are able to kill someone of your same capacity, you will be able to obtain strength equal to that.” Alternatively, if you’re way too strong and theres nothing at your level you’re not going to get any stronger, which could be why Makoto with his opness at level 1 can’t level up
Would be better if instead of 1 he got a NaN response. lol. XD
There can be no other explanation for that hahaha XD
Or he’s simply outside the system and can’t be read by the level scrolls. His power is akin to controlling the reality of his “space” and he literally has his own world after all.
He’s still slow in the head though. “Urashima Tarou” should have answered his time dilation question without a need for a black board.
i have not read the Urashima story but even i know what it is about (because it was used in other manga/anime)
What he asked was for details tho. Knowing that the time flows different per se doesn’t say much, he needs to know how much different is the time flow (it can be a hint to many things, like his parent’s info for example), so yeah, he was kinda desperate to think it calmly
thanks a lot
[…] Chapter 105: Thus, the Adventurer Guild was born. […]
if he can discover the time flow difference between two worlds, it can be very big help in finding the truth regarding his parents…
thanks for the chapter…
Yeah, my first thought exactly.
If we think of past 1000 years in this alternate world as somewhere around past 20 years in real world (the rise of games/rpg), then Makoto’s parent might have come from the alternate world around 1000 years ago too. Since he’s around what, 15 years old?
maybe the MC’s dad is the first husband guy Root was talking about.
damn wish i could edit my comment. for everyone that thinks Makoto’s parents are from 1000 years ago the librarian girl knowing his parents would negate that. unless the girl is an immortal dragon
Not necessarilly. Roots hubby could be from the future too as opposed to from being from the past 20 years
MC is very slow witted. Like, extremely slow.
Ok so basically time isn’t in sync between worlds. So the first husband was probably from the 1980-2000’s or something. Around the time JRPGs became common.
Second, this explains why his level is so low. (although assumed this from awhile back).
The reason why he can’t level up is because he can’t kill something that is on his level.
Seeing that he’s basically demi-god/god level.
so he need to kill god or someting equivalent to level up?
Makoto already knows instinctively who to kill. Yep, the bug goddess herself.
He does not need to kill anyone or anything at all he gains a lot of level power level mana levels and a bunch more when he does his trance like Kyūjutsu/arrow shooting
I mean didn’t tomoe already told him that when he does it it feels like he is killing him self because he somehow disperses his mana completely out of his body then after shooting an arrow he regains them back and the amount doubles so he is practically a living cheat engine of auto levelling just by shooting arrows in a trance like state
@Technomo12 : He doesn’t actually need to even shoot the arrow. The trance part where he is aiming is what is doubling his mana. He scatters his mind to take in the target and everything around it, once he has confirmed his target he brings his mind back into his body, readies the bow and fires it. By the time he is readying the bow his mana has already doubled, the firing of the bow is just the end of the routine for him.
Yeah I went back and you got it right me thinks but then again he cant do it without doing his Kyūjutsu/arrow shooting because again for you to enter a trance like state there has to be a goal in mind to why you wanna be in that state
but then again I dunno if he can go into that state without shooting an arrow because to me it seems like its a means to an end for him to go into that state in order to shoot an arrow
I can’t help but ask, who will Makoto kill? and for what reason?
I mean, to begin with did he even have the balls to commit such a heinous crime? At most, it’s probably just a fist to her face. Nothing more. He’s too mallow for a word such as “kill”. So he’ll still not be gaining level/s for that.
Instead of that, just commit genocide and see if he’ll level up.
Umm you do remember he killed that adventurer after the exploding ring incident
As I said in my comment, the mentioned number (65535) is the max EXP you can get in Dragon Quest, which came out in 1986.
ok? what comment?
You will have to scroll down a little to see it, but it should be on the first comments page.
idk about that yet… Who knows, maybe the first husband was teleported in the same year as Makoto. Like if he went back to Earth not even a full second has passed by…. Maybe their time streams arent even linear at all. Like in between both Universes Time doesnt exist and he could control what time period he goes back to if he wanted… Also in my opinion maybe he doesnt level up because he has no connection with the Goddess and that world. Maybe exp. points in every living being is connected to the goddess and when you kill something you take their exp.points… The reason the summoned heroes can level up is because they were added into the world because of the blessing of the Goddess. But since Makota didnt get a blessing he is still considered an outsider and also the fact that he gained power from the God of another world…
you’re making a lot of assumptions there.
At least my theory is solely based on what has been hinted at so far from the story.
Yeah.. and that will only take him to level 2
It might be that time flows differently. Ie. 1 second in Makato’s old world is like a year in this world sort of thing. I swear if this ends up with something like him going back to his own world only to find 1 night has passed or something and he treats the whole experience like a dream I am gonna throw a fit.
Except his parents’ time line disproves that. They made their deal and got sent to our Earth, and now their son is back after roughly the same amount of time has passed in both worlds.
that seems pretty far fetched…
He might be a little slow, but the answer helps his quest to find his ancestors. Let’s say 10 years in the original world equals 1000 years in this world, and his parents have been living in the original world for 15-16(?) years. That means he needs to spend more time digging around in the ancient history section, and less time talking to that fallen noble turned librarian.
Whether or not the author acknowledges this is another question entirely. I’m not sure what the time dilation adds to the story, unless the author wants to ensure all potential familial ties are dead and buried. If that’s the case, I don’t know why the origins of Makoto’s parents would be a plot point. To explain why he was initially chosen? To give indignity to the Goddess for grabbing two other people, along with her rejection of Makoto?
Actually, thinking about how the leveling system was explained, it could be that every time Makoto used his trance, he killed someone of his exact power level, and gained their power. He has been cheating the system by killing himself from the start…
Oo nice one.
So he isn’t going to ask why his level is 1 huh?
Eyy!! thanks for the chaap!!
its pretty confusing chap.i’ll read it again after work
thx for the chap
Thank you for the meal!
Time to uproot the info from Root!
Go stand in the corner.😄
Thanks for the chapter, and congrats on almost finishing up your exams!
Thanks for the chapter!
If Root has access to the adventurer database, then likely she/he/it has been actively suppressing the details of Makoto & Co. from being passed around to the rest of the world. A level 1 rookie with 3 digit level followers? This is suspicious no matter who you are.
As for Makoto’s own level, it might be as Karami92 said, he has surpassed the counter limit, hence it resets to 1. Or, it might be Root’s interference to prevent him from being noticed by the Goddess, or to prevent Makoto from falling into the same trap as other adventurers.
what trap the only people who can hurt him are people on tomoe, mio, root and shiki level. So I belive there is hardly a trap for him
correction: 4-digit levels :>
Thanks for the chapter!
Thanks for the chapter.
Thanks for the chapter, Reigo-senpai.
Instead of spoilers, Spoiler-san is going to do something else.
Makoto was 17 when the story began, so let’s use that as a reference point. The web novel (what Reigo-senpai is translating) started in early 2012. So he would had to have been born in 1995 (or possibly 1994 depending on his birth date). Now, he has an older sister. I think she’s like 19, but I’m not sure. I’m sure that his parents had to have been in “our” world since like 1992, about 20 years. Possibly 1993 if his mother was with child (the eldest). The number that Root’s first husband thought of as a romance, 65535, is the limit of EXP in Dragon Quest (which came out in 1886). So I’m guessing that there is a possible time difference of 500 years = 13 years?
I know the main argument on this theory, Eva knowing about Makoto’s parents. However, she knows of them. She didn’t say that she personally knew them or anything. So there is a possibility that they were historic figures in her country. As of yet in the raws, the actual time difference has yet to be confirmed. Or even if there is an actual time difference as the Bug could had just pulled some random guy from the later half of the 80s’ or the early 90’s for all we know.
I meant Dragon Quest came out in 1996!
The effect of Tsukuyomi’s blessing has been explained, un un~
Root has already said that no one has passed the level cap so that can’t be the case.
to put it simply….. Makoto is the number “1”
that otherworld time thing is simple i think…. its like when you got transported to Medieval era…. and when you spent time at another world 100 year… then on original world you only spent 1 year…. yes…. urashima tarou reverse….. but sometimes the times on another world and original world is remain same…..
well… if we talk about parallel universe and time is we need goddamn Wiki ~
and Makoto think that another world and his original world time is same….
in other way, it probably about adventurer guild function as thinning out hyumans. well, it does well considering people sometimes will challenge monster and sometimes died in process. But wait… doesn’t adventurer can only do job danger that is according to their level? like when you’re level H, you can’t do level G and above request? Does that still thinning out? And there’s still group party etc. Unless the adventurer are bunches of reckless people that don’t know when to retreat in battle.
countless reasons actually
1. ran into a monster that they can’t run from. (Gritonia hero vs mantis)
2. conflict with other hyumans (border town next to wasteland was designed purely for enslaving failed adventurers…until it was destroyed on a whim)
3. attacking and stealing from other races (eldwas and forest ogres were constantly attacked for their valuable possessions)
quite frankly, the adventurer guild is normal. even in games, you can just die randomly from something unexpected. think of that adventurer girl who disguised herself as a prostitute and inevitably caused harm to Asora, then think of how so many girls want to exploit Makoto purely for his money. now imagine most of the hyumans being like that.
Not hard to imagine. Most of us humans are like that too.
A really good example is actually Toa.
She and her party had a stable income and life where they were originally but she decided she wanted to try and recover her families knife (which Makoto is currently using) and convinced her party to travel to the wastelands to gain fame and fortune. Instead just about everyone else ended up dead and Toa ended up a research subject after her first quest with a new group, that was also wiped out with her as the sole survivor.
If she had known her limits and stayed in her home city or returned after the first failed quest, like the others from her original party, she could have lived a long successful life. Instead she rolled the dice again and lost and would have ended up dead if she had not had a younger sister and looked just like someone Makoto knew and cared for from his original world.
Under Tomoes teaching she learned her limits and gained the experience she was lacking before so she is now a success story, that lures more youths to their deaths in the wastelands.
” (which Makoto is currently using)”
when was that said?
Thanks 4 the chapter!
LOL. Mio got bored from all the explanation.
Seems she’s not good with exposition chapters. 😉
Another great chapter from Regio-sama. I was glad to see Makoto react so pragmatically to the info that the Adventurer’s Guild wasn’t created for the sake of hyuman advancement. Too many people would have bounced off the ceiling once they knew that the guild was for thinning the herd (so to speak).
Wasn’t surprised Mio went to sleep after hearing a bunch of talk. Was surprised she didn’t come fully awake the second Root said he’d attack Makoto.
Still wish Root would go play with Trashmoki instead of screwing around with Makoto.
Really? If that is so then they shouldn’t register or aspire to be an Adventurer to begin with. Root simply dissected what an Adventurer Guild is, the possitive(benefits) and negative(risks) side of the system. It’s repetitive, imo, since it should alreafy have been explained upon registering.
Like what Root said, it completely depends in the person whether to be revkless or play it safe.
Most people would have a problem with why Root made the guild. Of course, if he had the intentions of a saint, everyone would be fine with it, but because he expressly stated that the main purpose was to thin the herd, people would call him a monster, even if he did it to save the world. For most people, intentions are everything.
Actually it sounded like Root unbalanced the system, such that you get more exp from killing other people as well as the exp you get from a kill at low levels is lower compared to the exp you get at higher levels. This would lead to the lower level people staying low level and weak for longer compared to the ones that get past the break point in the xp curve. Since they gain power slower then they expect they go to greater measures to try and gain power faster, leading to riskier actions, leading to more death. Gaining more xp from killing other people would lead to levels going up in wars and from banditry and would also lead to “thinning the herd”. Bandits could only get so much power as they would become too well known and end up hunted as a result.
If I understood it right, Root intentionally rigged the system such that more people would get killed trying to see their numbers and privledges go up by making them weaker then they should be if the system was not rigged.
Thanks for the chapter
Thank u always for ur great work…
“And you are already treating him like dirt. That’s nice, please continue doing so.”
Akakakakaka, he say it from the bottom of heart…

Thanks for the chapter! 🙂
…best explanation for the presence of an Adventurers Guild ever. 🙂
i have come out from the shadows to tell you all my theory: in that world, time is faster than on earth.
thank you for the chapter by the way
After the previous dull one, this is a welcomed interesting chapter with some pretty well thought concepts.
Let’s see if the next one will play nicely with irregular time concepts :o) !
So in short, Root con’ed the Goddess into supporting a system that systematically and slowly weakened the hyumans, and by extension, her.
I actually had to look up Urashima Tarou. I was familiar with the story, but I had never heard the man’s name for some reason.
Thanks for the chapter.
“Even after a thousand years, there’s not much of a difference”
^– this line is missing the subject and its not in the previous line either. I remember it being implied in the RAW somewhere before it, feels like something was skipeed when you were translating. Just to make it clear, this line is refering to the population size of the hyumans. Before Root implimented the Guild it was clear that the number of hyumans would keep increasing because of the warped way the Goddess was showing her favoritism. After the Guild was founded the population size of the hyumans had stayed mostly level, until the Goddess took a nap and the demons caused a sudden drop.
I think it means, “despite what you may think, the hyumans are still acting the same way as they were 1000 years ago.”
Hmm, reading it again it might be referring to the death rate of adventurers staying level, even after 1000 years. Which shows that the race is not learning its lesson and keeps running off the cliff at a steady pace. They must think that the rewards warrent their actions.
That’s a good point as well. Ah! I just realized something that was bothering me! I kept thinking that this chapter made the hyumans seem like something, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. I’ve finally figured it out! The hyumans are a bunch of lemmings! Your comment about them running themselves off a cliff finally got it to click. Thanks.
Root stay away
Urashima Tarou? Does this means that “first husband” come back to earth later in his old age?
“If both of you drop out, I will attack Makoto-kun (in a sexual meaning) got it?”
._. Fuck off already, Root.
Anyway, thanks for the chapter. Some interesting information about the Adventurer’s Guild and time dilation. Makoto was pretty slow this chapter. I guess it makes sense with the information overload.
Isn’t he always slow on the uptake? But yeah, so now Root has a reason to transform into Stephen Hawking.
Just before Root showed up Makoto has been talking about how he can’t process information on a bunch of different topics at once without feeling like he is going to blow a fuse. Root then showed up and did a massive info dump on at least 2-3 different subjects, all of which were important to Makoto.
He was already overloaded trying to understand recent events and then he had a bunch more dropped on him. Its no wonder that he is shorting out.
Good Job 😀

Ty fo for the chapter^^
So in the the end he noticed that thing Xp well I prefer don’t make any hypothesis because space-time traveling can be really in different ways fir example in kuro no maou that the mc go first but but he was summoned after her heroine(50 yearsx$)
Thanks for the chapter!! <3
I think getting Root through making a pact with Her/Him won't be a bad Idea.. Since, it will benefit both of them.. It's just me though..
We already know that the time for when you get transported is flexible from the fact that although Makoto was the first hero sent in, he’s the last one to arrive, while the ones who were sent after him arrived before.
“But to say that everyone goes mad with greed. Even they should know when to pull back” (Makoto)
ahh… I want to see Makoto fall into some extreme suffering. Being helpless and whatnot. It really isn’t good when one simply gets handed food on a silver platter. Maybe it would fix his naivete. Somehow, it made me blame Tsukuyomi-sama a bit for giving him excess power/divinity. To be fair though, Makoto did understood it albeit, a bit later down their discussion.
Also, why would you think it strange that a “modern” concept would be unthinkable coming from an otherworlder a thousand years back? I thought your bro, Tsukuyomi, already explained, or hinted, that time is irrelevant when transporting people from another world. Just look at you three abducted kids, you were the first but arrived last. Really…
Ahh, no good, no good. I ought to re-read this novel from the beginning to replenish, and recall what I liked about this novel. Aside from the diff POVs in the current arc, it’s nothing but tragedy for me. It lit my desire to re-read after seeing Rinon’s POV.
Thanks for the chapter! And good luck with exams~
Ah right, I hope next chapter won’t be a lecture about space time continuum. I just had the feeling when Root asked for a blackboard.
Damnit Makoto. You should already know this. Really, what reliable retainers you have. Sorry Mio, im excluding you this time.
You and some others are slightly off.
Makoto was the first one to be removed from Earths surface, but was NOT the first one to be sent over. Tsukiyomi picked up Makoto and was having a chat with him in an Earth godly realm while they waited for the Goddess to make contact. They chatted for some time and were wondering what was taking the Goddess so long. It turned out that while they were chatting the Goddess was browsing Earth looking for people that she liked and abducting them to act as Heros. After she had picked 2 that she thought were accepable then then accepted Makoto into her world. Therefore, Makoto was the LAST one to arrive in that world, by a couple of minutes Earth time.
Based on the above it seems possible that the time difference is around 1 minute = 1 week, or something close to that. At least several days per minute. The first Hero arrived over a month before Makoto arrived but the total time that Makoto was chatting with Tsukiyomi was probably 10-15 minutes.
Makes you think about just how far back were Makotos parents from. Considering the country they were from was wiped out, finding any information about them is going to be hard.
I don’t think you know what greed is.
——– from “http://www.thefreedictionary.com/greed”
An excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what one needs or deserves, especially with respect to material wealth: “Many … attach to competition the stigma of selfish greed” (Henry Fawcett).
the keys words are excessive and more than needed.
someone that fight to eat is not greedy.
someone that fight and take high risk only to increasy unnecessary his wealth and luxury is greedy.
Thanks for the chapter 😀
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH ! He totally remind me one troublesome fellow !
Shiroyasha it seems like I found your alter ego ! AHAHAHAHAHAHAH !
Oy, oy, Mr MC-chan, does this head of yours serves you only to eat ?!
Thanks for the chapters !
It does seem like that sometimes, doesn’t it?
He’s too strong that even world’s leveling system can’t fathom his actual strength… And his god damn enormous mana pool.
Does anyone cant remember
Does anyone cant remember or it just me that the 1st who help him give him his power or something before he vanished? So his lvl is way more 65535 or I’m wrong….
No that orc girl measure his strength when he first arrive in that world as lvl 1
Tsukoyumi also explained how strong he was on the beginning xd also when while
While He was falling he give him a blessing or something I think sorry bout the messy comment
thx lot =D but serious he must stay away fron the werid dragon before it wont go away =P
Doesn’t the card say his level is one as a binary code joke. In binary terms 65535 is the highest line of code you can get essentially 1 going on continuously without a 0 (i.e 111111111111111111…) and it goes on sooooo him achieving higher than that just gave him a single binary 1, right?
Hm? So, it would seem there’s no particular rush back to the origin world. Good, good.
I do hope Makoto contracts with Root. Root is entertaining.
Thanks for the chapter.
after reading root explanations i read again chap 23-26 an i understood a lot of things…
I just realized that there is already evidence that the times of the two worlds aren’t linear. The librarian, Ema, said that those two were nobles in the kingdom that was the center of the Goddess’s church. The same kingdom that was destroyed in the demon’s blitz against the hyumans within the last 10 years. Those two were seen trying to escape during the last battle according to Ema iirc. Misumi family’s oldest daughter is in college. Either the two worlds are non-linear, or they left at least 19 years ago in both world’s times. In which case Ema is lying to him, trying to manipulate him.
he is suprisingly dumb isnt he,Mio is as cute as ever and Tomoe is as sharp as ever
anyway thanks for the chapter~ geez you should have focus on your exam lol
So LV really does stand for level of violence and exp. stands for execution points.
That’s why the adventurers in the guild later get a bad time…
its something like the old mu online when u reach ur STATS limit and keep trying to increase it, the result was a bug, ur stats become “1”, maybe makoto its outside the ranking just for power.
btw thanks for the chapters i just keep reading all of them, in 3 days xD damn what im gonna do NOW…..
Muchas Gracias desde Perú 🙂
Oh my god, the name is Root, and he’s the Guild Master (Admin). XD
Holy mother crap get. To. The. Point.
“Tomoe, isn’t Root an ex-colleague of yours? No, a boss-like existence? And you are already treating him like dirt. That’s nice, please continue doing so.”
Thx for the chapter
Site/tl for PoV chapter is dead.
Anyone with a pdf/epub or even scraped text of translations?
Too bad the link for POV chapters are dead. T_T
Adventurers Guild = Fantasy version of Contraception or Birth Control … Especially for Bugess *cough ~Hijacked~ *cough world.
All of those incentives, and Lvl. Exp. measurement designed to tempt more hyumans into early graves.
Dang … I need this Root Dragon as My Game Designer … Right Now
thanks for the chapter
Could be that because of that alteration in the growth rate in hyumans also affect why his strenght increase more when eating fruits of Asora?
yaoi path 👀
no pls no
How the hell does one even change the world settings? Maybe the bug helped it or something. Also the bug and Lut possess the same golden mana
the bug help him right?
I love how we adress her bug instead goddess
I mean probably
Man’s talking like he playing to minecraft
so that adventurer guild is made to thin out the population of hyumans? hmmm
Makes sense and even if they knew, I don’t think it would stop people from being adventurers. If you have the strength and abilities, you will also have easy money as well and as a hyuman/human, we are greedy creatures.
basically, adv. guild is just used to kill humans, death rate is much higher than success rate.
Also, that guy was probably into games, likely the late 20th, early 21st century. Mostly cus he knew about the 65535 thing, which is related to a 16-bit system.
Thank you! I was wondering about that! I’m terrible with numbers, so I had no idea what that was supposed to mean!
Does anyone have a new link to that short story POV as it no longer works? 🙁
go to TOC there should be a link there
Hmm, I guessed that the reason he was always at level 1 was because he kept “dying” during archery practice and that was resetting it, but it looks like it’s because there’s no experience (power) gained due to his opponents being much weaker than him. He’s basically One-Punch Man. xD
Earth has no gods’ blessing and protection that’s why Makoto’s powers are constantly used, becuase Makoto’s powers are constantly being used, it’s constantly levelling up.
In other words, In earth he’s been getting EXPs every second to the point that he’s just farming levels for 17 years(?)
But I doubt that he’s level is already maxed since 65535 is a lot and it can’t probably be done in 17 years.
And the fact that he kept dying and reseted the level 💀💀💀💀
Kkkk a Mio tava tão interessada no assunto q foi dormir
Is it just that time flows differently? Like it has been a year or so since Root’s first husband transmigrated?
It’s probably like that. I know other series are like that because our knowledge or thoughts on time is as a linear means but Dr. Who would explain it as wibbly, wobbly, timey, wimey.
It makes sense to think of it as a linear progression if in that situation unless we had additional info to refute that. Also, time between worlds may not even be the same progression of time, too when being transferred.
…So he might be able to return after all?
That certainly changes things, then.
Those number, i don’t understand the meaning at all
It always bothers me when Japanese people view multistoried wooden constructions as something out of place when the setting of the fantasy world is mostly based on European middle ages.
Now, I don’t know if the lumber they had available in Japan just wasn’t fit for multistoried buildings or what, but they definitely weren’t out of the ordinary in Europe. Sure, a lot of the buildings used stone and the poor peasants’ houses might not have had several stories, but in cities it definitely wasn’t unusual.
I really hope the mc fights this piece of trash. And beats them down later on.
I just processed too much information
