WM – Chapter 44-45: Reunion with Fuji-yan

TLN: SPOOOONSOOORED CHAPTEEERR!! Let’s celebrate with 2 chapters instead!

tenor (3)


Takki-dono and Lucy-dono have not returned even when a day had passed since going to Laberintos.

“Goshujin-sama, if you are that worried, I will go to Laberintos.” (Nina)

Nina-dono suggests.

“Hmmm…but there was a report that a dragon appeared in the Upper Floor. Even you, Nina-dono, wouldn’t be able to fight against a dragon alone.” (Fujiwara)

“If it is running away, I can somehow manage.” (Nina)

How vexing.

Yesterday there was an announcement of a dragon appearing in the Upper Floor, and the Adventurer City grew noisy.

There were more than tens of people added to the missing people list in just that one day yesterday. 

I was astonished the moment my friends Takki-dono and Lucy-dono were in that list.

I lost the composure to do any business discussions, so I cancelled all plans for today.

However, there wasn’t a single sign of my friends returning.

“Did a dragon appear on the Upper Floor because of the Taboo Dragon?” (Nina)

“That’s the rumor…” (Fujiwara)

Something called a Taboo Dragon was born inside Laberintos.

An evil monster that even dragons avoid.

It is said that the Great Demon Lord employed these monsters 1,000 years ago.

Because of that thing, Laberintos’s monsters began acting weird, which is what the adventurers reported.

“I hope Takki-dono didn’t encounter that dragon.” (Fujiwara)

“I heard that the dragon appeared around the Grand Waterfall. Takatsuki-sama said yesterday that he would be heading to the Grand Waterfall.” (Nina)

“I certainly do remember him saying that…” (Fujiwara)

Aah, I am worried-desu zo.

“But Takatsuki-sama is a person that can deal with powerful monsters in a calm fashion. I am sure he is alright!” (Nina)

“Right. But just waiting around is unnerving.” (Fujiwara)

“Then, let’s go to the guild once mo— Goshujin-sama! I can hear the voice of Takatsuki-sama!” (Nina)

“What?!” (Fujiwara)

 -Makoto Pov-

“Takki-dono!” (Fujiwara)

Fuji-yan runs towards us.

“Lucy-sama! You were okay?! Oh? Who is the one there?” (Nina)

Nina-san’s bright face changed into a sharp gaze.

Maybe she detected the presence of a monster from Sa-san.

“She is an otherworldler just like Fuji-yan and I. It is pretty complicated, so can we talk inside?” (Makoto)

“W-What?! Isn’t that Sasaki-dono?!” (Fujiwara)

Fuji-yan raised a voice of shock.

Wow, he noticed in one glance? 

Well, her human mode does have a lot of traces of her previous look after all.

“Even though Fujiwara-kun noticed immediately, Takatsuki-kun didn’t…” (Aya)

“Don’t say that.” (Makoto)

I was tired from fighting monsters all night.

“What… Something like that happened?” (Fujiwara)

“Sasaki-sama… You’ve had a terrible experience, haven’t you.” (Nina)

Hearing the story of Sa-san, Fuji-yan and Nina-san were in tears.

They are good people.

They apparently waited for us the whole time last night.

Sa-san has changed already.

It seems like for women’s clothing, there was only the ones of Nina-san, so she was on a tank top and shorts.

When looking at her in a bright place, her skin is bluish.

Her hair color is a somewhat purplish black.

Her face has the traces of Sa-san though.

How nostalgic.

“What are you doing staring at Aya?” (Lucy)

Lucy retorted.

As if pulled by this, Sa-san turns this way. 

Her dumbfounded face is the same in this world too.

“So, Sa-san, what are you going to do from now on?” (Makoto)

Well, don’t even need to ask though.

“I will be avenging my family.” (Aya)

I could feel a strong resolve from her voice.

She is stubborn once she decides on something.

She hasn’t changed since middle school.

“But doing that all alone is just…” (Nina)

Nina-san seemed like she wanted to say something as she looked at Fuji-yan.

Lucy looks at me.

Help Sasaki Aya

Don’t help Sasaki Aya ←

Don’t even need to think about it. Sa-san is an important friend.

But there’s one point that’s piqued my interest.

It seems like this RPG Player skill’s options appear at moments when I am about to face dangerous situations.

In that case, the harpies are strong enemies?

(You noticed just now?) (Noah)

I heard the amazed voice of the Goddess.

Honestly speaking, I thought it was a power that was only for the mood.

(Goddess-sama, thank you very much. Thanks to your guidance, I was able to reunite with an important friend.) (Makoto)

(Ara, is that so.) (Noah)

Saying this to the Goddess, I look at Fuji-yan.

“Fuji-yan, I will think of a way to conquer this.” (Makoto)

“Fumu, for the sake of that, we would need to gather information.” (Fujiwara)

We both grin.

That’s my friend for ya. He gets it.

“Oh my, you are totally into it, Makoto”, Lucy says surprised.

“Of course. Gotta help out a troubled classmate.” (Makoto)

“Thank you, Takatsuki-kun, Fujiwara-kun…” (Aya)

Even Sa-san is making a face as if she is on the verge of tears.

“But the harpies seem to be quite the powerful opponents.” (Nina)

Nina-san shows the request poster of the adventurer guild.

[Laberintos: Mid Floor.
The Queen of the Harpies and her children.
Reward; 3,000,000G (Calamity Designation Candidate)]

“Does this mean it is strong?” (Makoto)

“Hmm, fighting the whole flock would be more problematic than fighting a Griffon.” (Nina)

“It is stronger than that…” (Lucy)

Lucy makes a displeased face.

“It doesn’t matter. If it is just a harpie, I can defeat it in one hit.” (Aya)

Sa-san with her fist tightened feels reliable.

She has become quite the brawler.

“By the way, Fuji-yan, is Sa-san really just a normal Lamia?” (Makoto)

“Eh? What do you mean by that?” (Aya)

Sa-san turns this way.

“I think you are quite stronger than the normal Lamia.” (Makoto)

“I was interested in that as well. According to Sasaki-dono’s story, she thought that she died, but she ended up being alive. I feel a mysterious power from that. Let’s use this.” (Fujiwara)

What Fuji-yan was holding was a Soul Book.

“Aren’t those supposed to be given by the Church or you can’t get them?” (Makoto)

Or more like, you can’t purchase them unless you are from the Church.

“Fufufu, there’s a lot of routes. Go ahead, Sasaki-dono. Please hold this book.” (Fujiwara)

“Okay. What is this?” (Aya)

“With this, we can tell the Status of Sa-san.” (Makoto)

While I was saying this, the Soul Book released light.

It looks like her Status and Skills have been identified.

“Hm? How do you look at it?” (Aya)

“Lend it here.” (Makoto)

I borrowed the book of Sa-san and we all looked at it.

[Race: Lamia

Name: Sasaki Aya

Level: 34

Stats: XXXXXX

Skills: XXXXXX]

“Your level is above 30?!” (Makoto)

“Uwa! What’s this? Her Stats are crazy high too.” (Lucy)

“I lose to this…” (Nina)

Nina-san is shocked by this.

“Does that mean Sa-san has also gotten the Isekai benefit?” (Makoto)

“Is this impressive?” (Aya)

Sa-san tilted her head.

“Her Stats are crazy, but her skills are also interesting-desu zo.” (Fujiwara)

“Uhm, Unique Skills: [Transformation Skill] and [Evolution Skill] and…oh?” (Makoto)

That last skill…

“Hm? This is…” (Lucy)

Looks like Lucy noticed too.

It said [Action Game Player]. 

  • Chapter 45: The Skill of Sasaki Aya is Strong

“Action Game Player?” (Makoto)

“It resembles the name of your skill, Makoto.” (Lucy)

“The name of Goshujin-sama’s skill too.” (Nina)

“Let’s see here. Let’s look at it in more detail.” (Fujiwara)

Fuji-yan looks at the Soul Book of Sa-san.

“Can use the basic actions: [Dash], [Charge Attack], [Mid-Air Jump]… Sasaki-dono, can you?” (Fujiwara)

“Uhm, there’s definitely times when my running speed increases suddenly. So that was a skill, huh.” (Aya)

“Dash increases the regular speed to 3 times as fast?!” (Makoto)

“With the stats of Sasaki-sama, 3 times more is quite the strong skill.” (Nina)

That’s nice.

DIfferent from me, hers sound simple and easy to use.

“Sa-san, you got quite the jackpot there.” (Makoto)

“Hmm, is that so…” (Aya)

She is making a face as if she doesn’t really feel it.

“No, the most crazy part about this skill is here-desu zo.” (Fujiwara)

Remaining Lives: 4/5 ※Activates when level 30 or higher.

“This is…” (Makoto)

By remaining lives, it must mean the remaining lives that you can see in action games?

That means…this is a cheat skill! 

“Sasaki-dono, we now know the reason why you survived the boss of the harpies.” (Fujiwara)

Fuji-yan says this while sighing.

“Eh? What skill is this?” (Lucy)

“Goshujin-sama, please explain.” (Nina)

“Hey, Takatsuki-kun, what does this mean?” (Aya)

“No, Sa-san, at least you should know!” (Makoto)

If you are a gamer, you should understand.

“Remaining Lives is a word that’s used in our world. It means that you can redo the number of times it is said there-desu zo.” (Fujiwara)

“Redo?” (Lucy)

Lucy still isn’t picking it.

“By Remaining Lives: 5, it must mean that she can most likely revive 5 times at most.” (Makoto)

“Aah, so that’s why it has gone down to 4.” (Aya)

Looks like Sa-san has understood now.

But Lucy and Nina-san were in shock.

“R-Revive?” (Lucy)

“In other words, it has the same effect as the Light Saint Rank Magic: [Resurrection]?” (Nina)

“Well…most likely.” (Makoto)

““HIEEEEEEE?!””

It seems like Lucy and Nina-san finally understood.

“You would need several hundreds of thousands of G if you were to request for a resurrection from the Church…” (Lucy)

“Being able to resurrect yourself is already in a sacred treasure class…” (Nina)

The skills of our classmates really are cheats.

“Now that we understand the cheat-like strength and Skills of Sa-san, let’s rest for now. I am already at my limit in sleepiness.” (Makoto)

“Yeah, I am woozy.” (Lucy)

“Right. Let’s rest first before making a plan.” (Fujiwara)

Lucy and I fell asleep as if we had dropped dead.

◇◇

“Now then, let’s form a plan to defeat the Harpy Queen.” (Makoto)

“Alright!” (Aya)

Sa-san is pumped up.

The remaining ones are clapping.

“First, let’s share information. While Takki-dono and Lucy-dono were sleeping, we went to the Adventurer Guild to report that you two have returned.” (Fujiwara)

“Ah, forgot to report.” (Makoto)

That’s Fuji-yan for ya.

His consideration is polished.

“While at it, we gathered information regarding the unsavory adventurers that tailed you two at Laberintos.” (Nina)

“It looks like they haven’t returned yet.” (Fujiwara)

“That means…” (Makoto)

They couldn’t escape from the dragon?

“They were bad people, so that’s obvious!” (Lucy)

“It hurts my heart a bit, but it means that there’s no need to worry about being attacked by them in the future, so I suppose that will give me peace of mind.” (Makoto)

I give my thanks to Fuji-yan and Nina-san.

“Next is Sasaki-dono.” (Fujiwara)

“Me?” (Aya)

Sa-san still had energy even when coming out from Laberintos, so she went shopping for clothes with Nina-san.

She is currently wearing a one piece.

“This here is an Adventurer Card-desu zo.” (Fujiwara)

“Eh? You can get those even outside from the Adventurer Guild?” (Makoto)

There’s no way that’s possible.

An Adventurer Card can’t be issued anywhere aside from the Adventurer Guild, and anywhere else aside from the Adventurer Guild is against the law.

But we are talking about Fuji-yan here.

He must have some back routes.

The wry smile of Fuji-yan is testament to this.

“Uhm, name’s Sasaki Aya, and…race is Demi-human?” (Aya)

“If we do this the regular way, the fact that she is a monster will be discovered after all.” (Fujiwara)

“Aah, that’s true.” (Lucy)

Lucy nods.

“Is it bad to learn that she is a monster?” (Makoto)

“Takatsuki-sama…” (Nina)

Nina-san looks at me with an amazed face.

“Monsters and demons can’t be issued an adventurer card. They are subjugation targets in this world of humans after all.” (Nina)

“Is that so.” (Makoto)

Hm?

Then what about Lucy?

When I glanced at Lucy, our eyes met.

And then she averted her gaze.

(If I remember correctly, Lucy said she is a half elf and demon.) (Makoto)

Her adventurer card only said elf.

She must have used a back route.

“Then, I just have to hide the fact that I’m a Lamia, right?” (Aya)

“Yes. Your skin is bluish, Sasaki-sama, so it should be fine to answer that you are a fishkin if you are asked what race you are. There’s rarely any unless you are in the southern region, so there’s no need to worry.” (Nina)

As expected of Fuji-yan and Nina-san.

They thought a lot about it and made preemptive moves.

“So, the main topic.” (Fujiwara)

Fuji-yan spreads the harpy request poster and other papers.

“The weak point of harpies is fire magic?” (Aya)

“Well, their feathers burn well after all. We are counting on you, Lucy.” (Makoto)

“Yeah, leave it to me!” (Lucy)

Lucy rotates her arm.

Fire magic really is handy against monsters. 

“How many harpies are there?” (Nina)

“The family of Lamias was around a 100, so they are probably around the same.” (Aya)

Sa-san answers the question of Nina-san.

“It would be best to avoid fighting that amount of monsters.” (Fujiwara)

“Can’t we wipe them all out with a surprise attack when they are all gathered together?” (Aya) 

“With the fire magic of Lucy-sama, if it goes well…” (Nina)

“It is better to not rely too much on the no-control magic of Lucy.” (Makoto)

“Wa?! Makoto!” (Lucy)

Lucy grabs my arm and shakes it.

“Hey, your water magic was amazing too, Takatsuki-kun.” (Aya)

Sa-san who is at my other side is slapping my shoulder.

By the way, I am in between Lucy and Sa-san in the seatings.

“Water magic isn’t suited for attacks. The Water Dragon magic that I used at the time when we were surrounded by monsters only blew the monsters away. It didn’t defeat them. There might have been some who drowned though.” (Makoto)

“Water Magic: Water Dragon?! Isn’t that a Superior Rank spell?!” (Nina)

Nina-san raises a voice of surprise.

“I asked the Spirits to help me use it. It is not like I can use it.” (Makoto)

“Even so, that’s impressive.” (Fujiwara)

“Yeah, Takatsuki-kun was amazing.” (Aya)

Sa-san says this while sticking to me.

“I will do the attacking. The problem is where the harpy boss will be.” (Lucy)

Even Lucy grabbed my arm and stuck to me.

Lucy’s body temperature is high so it is hot here.

“I think they have a lair somewhere just like the Lamias.” (Aya)

Sa-san sticks even closer and closer to me.

I don’t know if it is the trait of Lamias, but her skin is cool.

The complete opposite of Lucy.

Or more like, stuck in between these two is incredibly tight…

Cramped.

“Hmm, we tried asking around the Adventurer Guild, but there was no information regarding the harpy’s nest.” (Nina)

“There’s no choice but to search for it on our own, huh…” (Makoto)

“Then, let’s divide in two groups today. Sa-san and I will explore Laberintos. Fuji-yan, I am sorry, but can you accompany Lucy? Lucy, I am counting on you to ask around the Adventurer City with Nina-san and Fuji-yan.” (Makoto)

“Eh?! Why? I will go to Laberintos too.” (Lucy)

Lucy objects.

“Lucy-sama, Laberintos is in a state where it isn’t strange to encounter a dragon anywhere. Exploring is dangerous.” (Nina)

“Uh, that’s true… But in that case, Makoto would be in danger too!” (Lucy)

“As long as I have water around, I can manage to escape. Also, I have to meet the Water Spirits every day in order to use Spirit Magic.” (Makoto)

“Is that so. That sounds cumbersome.” (Fujiwara)

“Thanks to that, I can use Superior Rank Magic.” (Makoto)

“I just have to guide Takatsuki-kun in the dungeon, right?”, Sa-san says.

“Yes, and while at it, let’s train your skills. It would be best if you were to learn Stealth.” (Makoto)

“Got it. Takatsuki-kun, you look like you are having fun.” (Aya)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

Really?

But it is true that this situation of preparing before defeating a boss is a first and it is exciting.

“Sorry, Sa-san. I have to go about it more seriously.” (Makoto)

“No, I was at a loss on my own. It is nice to have everyone help me out.” (Aya)

Saying this, the expression of Sa-san softens compared to yesterday.

“Hey, Makoto. Don’t do anything weird just because you two are alone, okay?” (Lucy)

“What do you mean by weird…” (Makoto)

Lucy pinches my cheek and I brush it off lightly with my hand.

“You are training with me at night.” (Lucy)

“Of course. Your fire magic is going to be the core of this time’s plan after all.” (Makoto)

“Yes!” (Lucy)

Now then, it has mostly been decided.

“Alright then, let’s begin moving.” (Makoto)

      1. Having a transformation be undone at an inopportune moment is a rather standard cliche. Typically in front of someone powerful or that will cause the party a big headache. So expect it at some point when the author starts running out of roadblocks to throw in front of the MC.

      2. @Miserys_End Well, Tatsuki is a fast talker, he would probably go like “Aya-chan, I know you are nervous, but stop transforming in your battle form whenever you reach your limit”

  1. And so the fighting for the legal wife position starts between Aya and Lucy. I wonder who will win in the end. It seems obvious that it is gonna be a harem in the end but the main hing is who is gonna get the first wife position lol.

    1. Definitely Mary, she’s got the conviction and resourcefulness to get him in bed, while the other two bicker. now we just need to wait for them to return to their hometown, or for her to come to Laberintos…maybe a temp transfer to the local guild….

      1. Noah is obviously the legal wife. She has the highest status after all. Also I think returning to their home town would be difficult seeing as that would be in Japan.

      3. Noah-kami is a goddess so will be to busy doing goddess things to monopolize Makoto. But if push comes to shove will dominate the rankings if she wants to.

        Mary-San has the go getting attitude to make it happen, BUT she is an older woman, so will make it hard on her.

        Lucy-chan likely has the best chances because she has been active with Makoto on a daily basis. Main thing holding her back is the tsundere personality.

        Sa-chan as the newcommer might fall into the childhood friend category. While that’s a big plus, it does have its drawbacks. A lot of comments and actions will be seen as just messing around, so if she is to succeed, she will have to be blunt about her intentions.

        Tbh, I’m expecting at least one more potential harem member before things start heading into the relationship zone. Even then, if Sa-chan or mary moves in for the kill, they will trigger Lucy-can to jump on the bandwagon and confess in desperation. Noah-kami feels more like a my pace kind of gal and will just take what she wants if she wants it. She will also make known to the others which place she wants, when the time comes to claim her portion of her champion xD

    1. Usually this would be the dense harem MC but I don’t think this MC is dense. I think A) his calm mind skill is playing a major role and B) he’s a hardcore gamer which is the main reason. He had 2 beauties squishing him between them and his response? Preparing for the boss fight is exciting! He’s a gaming nerd lol. Sorry girls you’ve got a tough fight on your hands.

      1. In the conversation with Fujiyan on the skyship didn’t he say something strange about how Fujiyan’s galgamer skill essentially prevents him from pretending to be a dense character?

        I found that strange, it almost sounded like he was trying to be dense on purpose. It made me think back to when he was told Mary liked him and he thought to himself “I wonder if she will lead me in the bedroom as well”. He seems interested but also as if he is trying to be aloof.

        Then when he and Lucy got into labyrintos and Lucy wanted to go shopping he agreed saying something about people disagreeing being the unpopular kind. Then he follows it up with how it isn’t because he is thinking about Fujiyan’s position/situation.

        All these points leads me to at least consider the possibility that he is indeed aware of people’s feelings towards him but is playing a specific role of “dense” character. Why I can only assume out of social awkwardness/not knowing how to respond and therefore deciding instead of saying or doing something stupid that ruins their friendship he would rather pretend not to see how they feel. Or maybe he likes the “dense character” setting and just decided to go with it.

      2. No, that’s Fuji-yan who talked about not being a dense character. He even directly implied that Takki was a straight dense one.

        As far as I can tell, Takki is just normally dense, and Fuji-yan is the one who can’t pretend, but for whatever reason also doesn’t want to settle matters in that department yet.

      3. Well lets not forget that this guys are still teenagers and as a teenager with not so much expierence with relationships and woman, it will be hard to make a choice between two hot chicks that are into you, unless he has fallen hard for one of them is normal for him to not have any clue wich he should aim for, even more if he need them both around.

      4. Going back over the chapter Fujiyan says:

        “I can’t even pretend to I don’t notice”

        Makoto responds:

        “I see, a way too strong skill has its own downs, huh.” (Makoto)

        And immediately beneath that is Makoto’s inner monologue:

        [With a skill that can read their minds, you can’t become a dense character.]

        This clearly shows he himself is thinking that people can pretend to be dense.

        From these statements it sounds like pretending to not notice/be dense is a particular character type in there eyes and maybe even one they would prefer to be.

        And beneath those statements is:

        “How about you, Takki-dono? How is it with Lucy-dono?” (Fujiwara)

        “How?” (Makoto)

        “Fumu, because of my skill, I can understand your feelings, Takki-dono, so it is a bit boring.” (Fujiwara)

        I find this such an odd phrasing, if Makoto was being dense Fujiyan wouldn’t have said he understood his (Makoto’s) “feelings”.

        Now call me crazy but that does not sound like the phrasing a friend uses when someone is not recognising another’s feelings/being genuinely dense

  2. I didn’t picture Sa-san to have blue-ish skin. I just assumed she had normal flesh-colored skin. Anyways now we know for sure she has a gamer-type skill. A dash, charge attack, and double jump and also 5 lives that apparently only was accessible once she reached at least level 30. I wonder if this means she’ll get more game-like features the higher her level is and also is there a way to increase her total lives? She also has an Evolution Skill. She’ll be able to evolve from an Ekans into an Arbok.

    And now the battle for legal waifu has begun.

    Meanwhile Fuji-yan still showing how much of a good bro he is. Doing a follow-up by reporting to the Adventurers Guild that Makoto and Lucy have returned. Getting information about the harpies from the guild to help Sa-san and getting her both an adventurer card and soul book through illegal back channels.

    1. Like most action games, it takes a while for them unlock your double jump, or dash, I wonder what other skills she will get as she levels/evolves. If it were Metroid she would have some ranged attacks, but she might also have a screw attack jump to look forward to… DMC and God of War types rely on you finding new weapons with skills tied to them, I need to play more action games, i can’t think of anything else she could get, other than a mid-range grapple ability….

      1. If we’re talking broken skills when game mechanics translate into reality, how about invincibility frames and quick-time events?

    1. Well he has a bit of an inferiority complex. He knows his stats are lower than even a commoner and he spent an entire year in school where even elementary age children had better stats than him. Then there’s also the fact that he’s been practically operating in survival mode all this time where he practices all day his magic in order to get stronger and fighting to gain a longer lifespan. He probably doesn’t think anybody would be interested in somebody as weak as himself or that he doesn’t have time to think about such things because of all his training.

  7. Hmmmm you know seeing how Aya got multiple lives from reaching level 30 I wonder if Makoto will get something similar once he reaches level 30 since having respawns is common in RPGs just like they are in Action Games. I could see Fujiwara also getting something similar like creating save points or something since in a lot of Galge’s you gotta replay to get some routes.

    1. If it’s only jrpg, he would have to find a Save Point somewhere, before he can start saving and loading, but he’s seemingly got mobile rpg skills, turn based, possibly tactics type… maybe his third person view will evolve to let him see more of the map around him, or calm mind letting him slow/pause time, for longer decision making time…. Rpgs don’t really have multiple lives, but they do let you revive your party members, as long as it wasn’t a full wipe.

I doubt this will happen cause it basically goes against the title, but it’d be kind of hilarious if later he found out that he could open up his own status window without using the book. The reason this would be important is because accessing the menu would be very important in distributing stat points you may have been awarded to strengthen your character in many rpg’s, but I don’t think he’s ever tried looking into it since the rpg gamer skill only mentioned the change in POV and the world already has their own systems to look into stats. It would also explain why his stats don’t seem to grow and why they’re so much lower than everyone else’s, cause he hasn’t ever distributed any of them.

  8. Thank you for the chapters! 🙂
    Also, it’s nice that Lucy is warm and Aya is cool considering our boi Mokoto uses water which changes temperature quickly. Oh, they could make a bath really warm or cool depending on which side they’re in.

  9. Thank you so much for translating this series. We all appreciate your hard work. I always have a smile on my face when I see a new chapter is released, let alone 3. Stay safe with all this shit going on around the world.

  10. I hope Makoto won’t pick up girls with tragic heroine attributes so much. And no I’m not jealous of him. Hmph! B-baka! Anyway I smell fried chicken for the next few chapter. And Lucy stop with that misleading training at night!

  11. Blue skin, you say? Hora hora intensifies.
    I’m glad we finally got a look at her stats. Crazy high numbers, plus Action Game mechancs, plus extra lives, huh? That’s…pretty busted. I sure hope Takki and Fuji-yan get that too. I’m assuming evolution is more of a monster thing and she’ll eventually mutate into a higher form of monster over time.

    So now we got a hot and cold waifu, huh? I gotta say that I’m a bigger fan of Sasaki, but Lucy’s…fine. She’s passionate, if nothing else. It looks like the two of them will get along swimmingly as long as Takki isn’t the subject. I can totally imagine the team entering a cold environment and Sa-san curling around Lucy for warmth while protecting her.

    But of course, the biggest bro is still the grand merchant, Fuji-yan. The guy knows how to follow-up, make arrangements, and support his friends. The fact that everyone was tearing up at Sa-san’s tragic story was fantastic and made them all more lovable.

    #MeToo, specially because i have been reading He Who Fights With Monsters and the MC there also has a quest ability that generates him rewards and gives him a counter that shows how many enemies are left, in comparison Makoto’s quest system looks merely for the flavor

  14. I freaking love this party.

    – The Apostle of an evil god
    – A shady merchant with a slave that gets ahead in business by mind-reading his victims
    – A dungeon monster hell-bent on revenge
    – A half demon monarch-class mage (which a staff modded by *another* evil god).

    Anyone looking into this party out of context would think this is some plot to betray humanity.

    Disclaimer: this was not spoiler, just a fun observation based solely on the story so far.

    Please Makoto, leave the survival mode for a second and face reality. It’s more than obvious here.
    Really great chapters, and Ayase is really a cheat like character. x)

  18. Say, something’s just occurred to me. Has…Has Takatsuki taken damage yet?

    He’s been drained of mana and gotten hurt from the feedback of using Lucy’s mana, but has he actually taken a hit? With this new extra life system, I wonder if he doesn’t actually have some weird game character physics going on.

    1. He was burned really bad so I’m guessing he doesn’t have a gamers body. Although even if he doesn’t, all the gamer skills so far have been OP – ‘RPG’ is a lot more broad then the other 2 so I’m guessing it’ll be an awesome upgrade lol

      1. See, that’s the thing. He was injured, but that’s not really “taking damage” so much as suffering an HP cost.

        I assume he’d bleed like any normal person, but…it’s hard to say.

    2. Didn’t he get hit by the Griffon? I know that the griffons attacks were getting closer and closer when he was using evade but I thought there was one time he actually got hit by it. Shall need to re-read the chapter

  19. Well, that skill was definitely jackpot.

    Makes me wonder about Lucy though. If she can still sweat, wouldn’t Makoto be able to cool her sweat with his magic in case she dress a little heavier? Unless her constitution means she can’t sweat. If it’s possible, Makoto gets training and Lucy gets skinship, everyone wins!
