BFTG-NT Chapter 22

Here ya go,  C22.  I’ve been bit busy in many senses of the meaning so I’ve not yet TLC’ed 21 nor 22.  SpecterZe has been busy in the good sense(for readers),  So the releases will get to break the 1 a week pattern again in all odds (there are still at least 2 in the queue I think currently). 😉

I’ll give them their due respect when I update the navigation, etc.  Tho, you don’t want to wait for that level of review obviously.  Editor-chan does a pretty good job so it’ll be fine.  As usual, I’ll keep an eye on the posts and correct anything pointed out.

Chapter 22 


We enter the village and head toward village chief’s house immediately. This is a farming village, so each house has their own field. Isn’t that rice?

A : No, it isn’t.

Oh, yeah….

[Excuse me, we came here about the request.] I state.

We start talking in front of village chief’s house, and the door is opened immediately.

[Oh, I have been waiting. Please come in.] the village chief says.

[Excuse me.] I reply.

We head inside. Of course, Yurika goes with us, too. The village chief starts talking as soon as we were seated.

[Well, after I saw what happened with that ojou-san, I think I’m about to declare a failed request.] says the village chief.

[I’m sorry…] Yurika says.

Yurika apologizes. Come to think of it, she had to report about the potion-making request before this request, and that gave a disadvantage to the next adventurer who is going to accept this request…

[Well, I don’t need to worry because you found adventurers who can defeat those fang wolves.] the village chief began. [Everyone does have battle experience with fang wolves, right?]

[I lost count. If there are just two, we can handle them alone without a problem.] I reply.

Oops, I forget to say, “Excluding Yurika”.

[That sounds reliable.] the village chief says. [Will you able to defeat them today? If you are going to do it tomorrow, you can stay at this house since there is no hotel in this village.]

[We will do it today.] I state. [So, could you tell us about the details? Please include what Yurika found too.]

The village chief and Yurika both nod.

[Yes. First of all, the damage happened outside of this town’s barrier.] the village chief begins.

It seems there is a magic tool called “barrier stone” that protects towns and villages. It creates an area around the stone that monsters can’t enter. Of course, there are some exceptions. It is completely unaffected by monster followers, highly intellectual monsters, and powerful (high level) monsters. It becomes less effective against large monster groups. It doesn’t seem to prevent stray dragon attacks or monster stampedes.

This farm village isn’t affluent, but it still covers a large area. So… Some fields might be beyond the protection area, and the more area that barrier stone can cover, the more expensive it will be.

But low-intellectual monsters don’t usually approach field, even if it was outside of the protected area, because of the unpleasant feeling they experienced when approaching fields inside the protected area.

[There aren’t many wild animals here,] the village chief states. [And monsters usually don’t approach the barrier stone much. Because we didn’t understand the reason we were attacked, we sent the request to the adventurer’s guild.]

[And from my observation, the criminals are fang wolves.] Yurika says. [I decided to escape because I couldn’t fight when the second one showed up.]

I know how weak Yurika is. It seems she is going to fight desperately with goblins.

[Do you know why fang wolves damaged the field?] I ask.

The village chief is troubled by my question.

[Perhaps it is an anomaly in Torute forest.] says the village chief.

[Torute forest?] I ask.

[Yes, it is a forest east of this village.] the village chief begins. [Fang wolves can usually be found there. They don’t attack the village’s fields much because there is a lot of food in the forest.]

[So they targeted the fields outside the barrier when they couldn’t get food because there is an anomaly inside the forest…] I propose.

[It is possible…] the village chief agrees.

But our request is just to exterminate the fang wolves that damaged the fields. Since this problem is unrelated to us, we don’t want to go deeper than this.

[Do you know where those fang wolves are right now?] I ask.

I can find them with Map.

[Yes, they are in the field right now.] the village chief states. [They seem to think we don’t have enough power to drive them out.]

I am right, after all, since I could detect enemies inside the village.

[Really?] I state. [Could you send someone out to confirm this since we are going to exterminate them now?]

[Then, I will go.]

the village chief says.

[M-Me too!] Yurika exclaims.

Yurika, too. Well, is that really necessary?

We head toward the field at outskirts of the village.

[Well…] I begin. [How are we going to defeat them?]

[Just approach them normally and kill them, as per usual.]

Maria answers calmly. Well, that is a good idea.

[No, I will let Mio defeat them.] I reply.

[Eh? Me?] asks Mio.

Mio is surprised when she heard what I said.

[Don’t you want <Monster Taming> skill?] I ask.

[Oh! That’s right! I will do it!] exclaims Mio.

It seems Mio finally remembered the promise that I will convert skill points from the monsters she defeats into <Monster Taming> skill for her.

[It is impossible to calculate all points in the middle of chaotic battle, so this is your chance.] I tell her.

[Thank you very much, Master~!] Mio exclaims.

It is good if you are happy.

[Does that mean my chance hasn’t come yet?] asks Sera.

[Uh, sorry.] I begin. [I will find a chance for you later.]

With our situation, I think Sera will have a lot of chances to take an active role. Perhaps… a situation that nobody else can do.

[Then I will snipe them with arrows.] Mio says.

Fang wolves are within her sight. We just hide ourselves in the bush, twenty meters away from them. Those two wolves are like a tasty meal.

[Then I will finish them at once! Ei!!]

Mio shoots arrow while shouting.

[Once more!] Mio exclaims.

Mio fires two arrows in row.

One of them directly hits a fang wolf’s head, killing the first one. The second one, who was eating vegetables, notices it and raises its head. The second arrow hits its head directly and kills it.

Hmm… You could predict the location of the enemy ahead of time. She really put forth some thought…

[Wow! You did it.] I exclaim.

[Fufu, Mio-chan has been improving everyday, too!] Mio says.

Mio sticks out her (non-existent) chest with pride. Our policy doesn’t rely on high status, but one’s own skills.

[This is amazing.] the village chief says. [You can defeat them in the blink of the eye…]

[Uwa~ Even this girl can kill them, but I…] Yurika mutters.

Please don’t be surprised. Well, you couldn’t expect that kind of result when you look at Mio’s appearance.

[So this request is done.] I say. [What should we do about the corpses of the fang wolves? We are going to harvest them, but if you want, we’ll sell them at a lower price.]

[No, that is good enough for us.] the village chief says. [Let’s return to my home for the time being.]

At the village chief urging, I store the corpses of the fang wolves in Item box and then follow him.

Again, we are at the village chief’s house.

[This is the proof of a successful request and reward.] the village chief says. [Thank you very much.]

[No, it is really okay that we could defeat them safely.] I say.

[Err…] the village chief mumbles. [If you are okay with this, could you accept one more request?]

What is it? I think I can predict it.

[What is it?] I ask.

[I want you to investigate the anomaly in the Torte forest.] the village chief begins. [I want you the find the reason why those fang wolves came out of the forest. If there is an anomaly in the forest, this village is in danger.]

I’m certain this is something that needs to be investigated. However…

[Why us?] I ask. [Do you usually go to town and put in the request?]

[You are right,] the village chief says. [But you are really strong, so I will go to put in a request after this. So… Please!]

[What’s the objective… and reward?] I ask.

The village chief is at a loss for words after hearing what I said.

[Uh… Err.. there is nothing we can do if that isn’t investigated…] the village chief says.

[We have to talk about this.] I say. [How could we accept the request without neither objective nor reward?]

In the first place, accepting the request from Yurika is really bad. Investigation and extermination are the same type of request. The rank of the request is dependent upon information from the field.

It is possible that a simple investigation request will become an extermination request. I can’t accept the kind of request carelessly.

I mean… Why did I accept Yurika’s request? Didn’t I just overstep the adventurer guild’s responsibility?

A : In case of requests that are C-ranked and below, you don’t need to confirm the rank with the guild. In this case, it was judged by the small amount of damage that was done to the field. The basic stance should be “I shouldn’t accept any requests I don’t want”, and that includes the requests you aren’t sure you can finish.

Really blunt.

[Because you are strong! Please accept this request!]

Yurika, who has been silent until now, suddenly says that.

[Didn’t you hear want I said?] I ask. [This request don’t even have a clear objective. I can’t accept that kind of request.]

[But people of this village might be in trouble!] Yurika exclaims. [As adventurers, we must help a person who is in trouble!]

Yurika seems to have misunderstandings about being an adventurer. She has a strange sense of justice.

[I can’t say you are wrong with that,] I begin. [But there is a limit to how could we accept the request properly. Being an adventurer isn’t a charity job. Please don’t misunderstand that.]

[But it is natural to help people in front of us who are in trouble!] Yurika says.

She is stubborn. I didn’t say I wouldn’t accept this request. It won’t be a problem, at all, if this request has a proper objective and reward. The village chief doesn’t intervene either, since this situation gives him an advantage.

[Don’t try to change the subject.] I say. [We are talking about adventurers who are or aren’t going to accept request right now, not the reason for being an adventurer.]

[Ugh, b-but I thought being an adventurer is cooler than this…] Yurika says.

Yurika’s voice become weak. Completely depressed. Like we aren’t going to accept this request. Well, let’s copy her skill before it is too late. I just take one point each from <Escape> and <Magic Tool Making>. Then, I add an unconverted point to them and return. So… We finally have <Escape> and <Magic Tool Making> in our hands! 

It seems Yurika’s <Escape> skill is about to level up, so I add one extra point as thanks. Well, it doesn’t matter…

[We can’t accept this request right now.] I state. [Today, we are going to stay in our carriage and have a vote about what we are going to do tomorrow.  We could bring you to town with us, too.]

We return to carriage as I said since we feel bad about staying at the village chief’s house. I mean, our carriage is more comfortable than the village chief’s house…

Yurika doesn’t go with us. Instead, she stays at the village chief’s house. So we don’t have to worry about “facilities we can’t show her”, specifically, the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom in”Room”.

The next day, I have everyone prepare for departure while I head toward the village chief’s house alone.

[You are here again,] the village chief begins. “But aren’t you going to return soon?]

[W-Well, you are right…] I mumble.

The village chief is suspicious. Don’t tell me he plans to make me accept the request at the last moment?

[Come to think of it…] I begin. [Where is Yurika?]

I don’t see Yurika on the Map.

[That ojou-san…] the village chief begins. [She said,”I’m going to investigate that forest.” She left early this morning.]

The village chief gave up and told me this. It seems she really has a strange sense of justice. So she moved on her own. Great! I already took her skill yesterday, so she has nothing to do with us, anymore.

Am I heartless? It doesn’t matter because she acted on her own, and she wasn’t even our companion, either.

[So? A request note?] I ask.

The village chief is a little surprised when I asked for the request note.

[Are you going to help us?] the village chief asks.

[Why did you ask?] I counter.

[Is it for your companion?] asks the village chief.

[No, it isn’t.] I say. [She just followed us when she transferred her request to us.]

It seems he thinks we are going to follow Yurika, who went ahead to investigate. Perhaps he even enticed Yurika to do it.

[Don’t you have a request note?] I ask.

[N-No, I don’t.” the village chief stammers. [I think I’m going to wait for her to report back first.]

Well, he is right. According to yesterday’s event, the village chief knows how to make a proper request now.

[Understood.] I say. [In that case, we are leaving.]

I left.

[P-Please wait a moment!] the village chief calls out. [Could you wait while I make a request note?!]

[I will wait this morning only.] I say. [I have no intention of waiting for Yurika to report back, so you have to make it right now or forget it.]

[That is…] the village chief mumbles.

I don’t have plans to hide anything nor intentions to clean up this mess. I want to return to town and prepare to go to the next town…

I leave the village chief’s house and return to the carriage.

[Eh? Yurika-chan and the villagers?] someone asks.

[It seems Yurika is investigating the forest on her own.] I begin. [We are going to accept the request if there is one because of the result of our vote, but we have to go soon.]

[It seems so. There is no point to wait.] says someone.

[Then, let’s go.] I say.

[[[[Yes]]]] everyone exclaims.


I leave the driving to Sera and Maria as we leave the village. Since Yurika isn’t here, we are free to use”Room”.

As we leave the village, I check Map. There is an area call Torte forest nearby. Yurika isn’t on the road or in the village, so she should be in the forest.

Let’s have a trivial talk… About Map’s function. I just realized the color spot on the map is classified by the relationship with me.

All my subordinates are displayed in blue. There is a severe condition to let the system to display a blue icon, so it won’t become blue if they aren’t really a close friend or lover. I don’t think her icon will be blue.

Enemies will be displayed in red, and that includes anything with hostility, no matter high or low.

Green is netural. They are the most common. This allow me to detect a problem ahead of time… or plan how to approach. Corpses are displayed in gray, and the border color is used to identify friendly or enemy corpses.

Right now, Yurika’s icon suddenly blinks and turns gray with green border.

[Eh… Yurika, she is dead.] I say.

[Eh? Oh, you are right.] Sakura says.

<<Is this spot Yurika’s icon?>> Dora asks via telepathy.

[That’s right.] Maria confirms. [It seems she is dead. That is natural because she acted on her own without listening to Jin-sama’s warning.]

[Maria-chan, that is too harsh.] Mio says.

[But I did tell her to take responsibility for herself.] Sera says. [So this isn’t our fault.]

Everybody is quite calm. From the perspective of people in this world, including Mio but not Sakura, life is cheap. However, Dora just doesn’t understand. Since all of them used to be half-dead slaves, they are really familiar with death.

[What is Master going to do?] Mio asks.

[I have no intention of doing anything.] I say [I already took all her rare skills yesterday, and we can’t take her abilities since she was killed by someone else.]

But I’m a little curious about the monster who killed Yurika.

Man Eater (Abnormal Class)

LV 40

<Poison Attack LV5> <Acid Attack LV5> <Tentacle LV5> <HP Regeneration LV3>

Note: A plant that preys on animals, monsters and humans.

(Spec: I read too many H-manga to know what will be happened next >_< )

[Maria, Sera. Let’s head to the Torte Forest.] I say.

[Understood.] Maria says.

[Uhh… W-Wait? Why?] Sera mutters.

Sera is a little confused by my sudden command while Maria just obeyed my instruction immediately.

[Why do you suddenly want head into the forest?] Mio asks.

[Ah, I’m interested in the monster that killed Yurika…] I reply.

Mio also checks the Map.

[Man Eater? Abnormal? It seems really interesting.] Mio agrees.

I’m interesting in the abnormal type, but the problem isn’t just there.

[It is an abnormal type, and its name makes me feel unpleasant.] I say.

[Uh… Do you know something about man eaters?] Sakura asks.

[I’m sorry, but I don’t want to talk about it.] I say. [We have to defeat it, anyway. And this isn’t revenge for Yurika.]

It isn’t about Yurika, at all, but we have to defeat it, no matter the cost.

Q : What is an abnormal type?

A : An extreme rare mutated monster with a low probability of happening. Monsters are usually strong, and this mutation make them even stronger.

We reached the Torte Forest about ten minutes later with our carriage. Tamo is on stand-by, guarding the carriage.

[Since we want to defeat them quickly, I will raise overall status.] I state.

[It is unusual for Jin-kun to do this.] Sakura says.

[Uh… Do you hate man eaters?] asks Mio.

I don’t think I hate man eaters.

[Since this is extermination, Maria and Sera will be vanguards while Dora and I move freely.] I begin. [Mio and Sakura, although I think this is bad idea, I want you to come, too.]

[Understood!] Sera exclaims. [My time has finally come!]

[I can’t bother Jin-sama with those pests.] Maria says. [Just Sera and I are enough to exterminate them.]

The two vanguards seem the have full motivation.

<<I will be together with Master~>> Dora says.

Dora is cute as usual. However, she isn’t suitable for extermination because her role is a tank.

[It is hard to fight while moving. So I will follow behind you.] says Sakura.

[<Monster Taming> Point.] Mio states.

Sakura isn’t suitable for this, so she just stays back. Mio, didn’t I tell you it is hard to calculate the points during chaotic battle?

We enter the forest. Torte Forest is different from a goblin forest. It is more like a tropical forest. Colorful nuts and mushrooms are everywhere. Colorful mushrooms? It is clearly a poison, without a second thought.

By the way, all of the monsters here are plant types. Because of the abnormal man eater’s appearance, the balance of power in the forest has changed, and this forest is now being dominanted by plant-type monster. It might look completely different from the original forest’s appearance. This is the reason that forced those fang wolves out of the forest.
I’m going to investigate the anomaly in this forest, but I won’t report because finding a reason to be there is troublesome. Besides, I don’t think we will be paid for this, either.

We enter the forest with the formation we had planned earlier. However, the extermination power of Sera and Maria is extremely absurd, and we aren’t even slowed down, at all. Maria usually aims at weak spots while Sera is using her brute force to cut apart enemies in one strike.

We store all of the monsters we killed in <Inventory>. While speed is important, it is also important not to leave enemy corpse behind. Fortunately, it doesn’t take much time.

So… ? What kind of monsters are in this forest?


Brown Mushroom

LV 8

<Confusion Attack LV3> <Confusion Resistance LV3> <Spore LV3>

Note: Brown umbrella mushroom.

Green Mushroom

LV 8

<Paralysis Attack LV3> <Paralysis Resistance LV3> <Spore LV3>

Note: Green umbrella mushroom

Purple Mushroom

LV 8

<Poison Attack LV3> <Poison Resistance LV3> <Spore LV3>

Note: Purple umbrella mushroom

Rainbow Mushroom

LV 8

<Confusion Attack LV3> <Paralysis Attack LV3>  <Poison Attack LV3> <Abnormality Status Resistance LV3> <Spore LV3>

Note: Rainbow umbrella mushroom


LV 10

<Mimic LV2>

Note: Monster who mimics trees.

Ice Flame Bug

LV 8

<Fire Resistance LV2> <Ice Resistance LV2> <Parasite LV4>

Note: Parasite. Also gives resistance to monsters under its control.

Burst Apple

LV 5

<Self-destruction LV3> <Iron Will LV1>

Note: Exploding apple. How/why it explodes is still unknown.

Burst Pineapple

LV 5

<Self-destruction LV3> <Iron Will LV1>

Note: Exploding pineapple. How/why it explodes is still unknown.

This is the first time we can obtain <resistance> skills. <Element> and <abnormal status resistance> skills are really important in games, but I haven’t seen them until now. And finding rainbow mushrooms is like hitting the jackpot because it has <Status Abnormality Resistance> that resist all <abnormal status>. I distribute them to everybody immediately. Trent’s mimic skill is a little different from slime, even if it has a similar name. I think I could give it to Tamo-san later.
Burst type is a monster that self-destructs when something is near. Since there is a time lag, it is easy to defeat. By the way, <Iron Will> will make them to have 1 HP left after blowing up. I think it is a good combo, but Help-sensei doesn’t know how it explodes, either. The only explanation is <Self-destruction> skill.

The number of abnormal monsters is increasing as we get near that man eater. Yurika might have encountered them, too. I guess <Escape> skill is really great.

    1. Nah, i think hr just say she died because he think when they reach her she will already death, but gonna bet she will verge on dying and probably helped on whim by jin.

      1. More than likely, one of his still hidden skills will activate and will allow him to resurrect her as a subordinate. Since his entire skill-set has been based around strengthening companions, it wouldn’t be strange for him to have necromancer style unique skills.

    2. Life isn’t actually harsh to Yurika as she can make a good living with her potion skills. Those skills will also improve over time with use, so she will be able to earn even more later on. It’s just that Yurika has that foolish naive “you must help others at all costs” attitude and tried to guilt-trip Jin, Sakura, Dora, Mio, Maria, and Sera into it. I didn’t find the use of guilt-tripping admirable at all. Jin was correct to refuse to succumb to guilt tripping.

  2. Poor delusional Yurika, just wanting to be of help to people, well justice doesn’t prevail.

    Tho she will probably be resurrected and added onto harem train.

    1. Why are you guys all saying “Poor Yurika” she acted stupid and payed the price.

      She encountered wolves in the first place and then decided to retreat because she knew she wouldn’t be able to handle them but all of sudden she wants to see what’s making the wolves flee of which she couldn’t handle in the first place?

      Hope she stays dead like the dumb idiot she was MC doesn’t need a idiot to babysit look at his normal teammates right now they are doing their best pulling their own weight and doing what they can do best in their own field what the hell would Yurika bring other than extra useless baggage.

      Lets hope author-san does screw this up~

      1. Well, I don’t want Yurika to enter the harem but it would have been nice for her to realise that adventuring isn’t for her and stayed in the guild to be a full-time alchemist.

        1. Woops didnt realize i did it as a reply instead of a single comment.

          I mean that would’ve been a good thing having MC just convince her this isnt the right path for her.

          Too bad author-san needed aa easy excuse to make MC visit the forest for more power ups.

          Also i meant to type
          (Lets hope author-san doesn’t screw this up*~)

      2. You’re missing a very important point, she knows how to make potions and magic items. Remember what happened with cooking, skill only helps boost the available talent and knowledge, it didn’t help Jin and Sakura who couldn’t already cook. So, they need her alive.

        1. Not really as Maria can do all skills in a way she earns point easily and the people that earn point are the ones capableAnd the cooking thing is just cause it was Hajime and Sakura having spetial power.

      3. Isn’t it a bit harsh to say we shouldn’t pity them and say “poor Yurika”? You say you hope she stays dead, which seems to me that you think she doesn’t deserve a second chance or deserved to die. “Hope she stays dead like the dumb idiot she was” – Even main characters (well, at least one) can be a ‘dumb idiot’ in the beginning but they can change, right?

        1. Yeah but the way she was written and killed off was just a poor excuse for jin to check up on her and happen to come across the monster skills that he’ll get interested in plus like i said what usefulness does she have for the party at this point? Iirc there’s another member in the group that can make potions at 150% and can fight.

          Also yes i dont think she deserves a second chance. She knew her limitations and she still went ahead and got herself killed. She was nothing but a cheap and easy way for the MC to progress in powering up.
          (Runs from wolves but actively goes to investigate something that the wolves were scared of?) #StopSupportingDumbCharacters

    1. why should anyone be concerned, just because she is a female? if she couldn’t handle the wolf of the original request, what made her think that she could handle whatever make the wolf run?
      she made a foolish decision and couldn’t get any other result of that decision.

      1. Who said it was because she was female? Im curious why you brought that up out of nowhere. And I’d say most deaths are pitiable, even if they made a foolish mistake.

  3. Meatbun delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    No good Village chief is up to no good..
    I wonder if we should gift the village chief a burst apple~

  4. Gonma bet she still alive but atverge of dying and helped on whim.
    Also this yurika remind me Yurika for rokujouma. Both of them clumsy, idiot, good at escaping, failure at most things, have a bad luck and some a character you can’t bring to hate.

    1. Yup, they seemed really similar, to the point that her death actually makes me sad… It’s probably what could have happened to Rokujouma’s Yurika, if Koutaro hasn’t taken her in… ?

    1. That whole self-destruct reminds me of those so called Pokemon that can do it. But the only one’s who it has no effect on are flying types. Maybe, they should have brought the dragon. I am just kidding. Thanks for the chapter.

  5. Thanks for the chapter!
    I thought that Yurika might join the harem. Pity that she died. Maybe she’s not dead but afflicted with some abnormal status. After all she was only seen on the map and not actually the dead body. Though Jin stealing her abilities might have led to her death if she really did die.

    1. nope, Jin just took 1 point of each and then restored the point with the skill that allows to convert points from any skill. also if her scape skill was failing, she wouldn’t have reached that man eater monster.

    2. He took 1 point from her abilites to get her abilities, then he returned them by using unused points. He even leveled up her escape ability, so technically he didn’t steal anything.

      I kinda hope she is dead. She would make a perfect companion for some dumb ikemen hero with her stupidity

  6. aww… I kinda hope a revival spell gets created. As stupid and naive as Yurika is, I didn’t want her to die.

    … aside from that though, creating a revival spell in advance would really be beneficial. If one of the party members somehow die, they can still be brought back.

  7. really… author-kun is so heartless… how can she send the girl to her death just like that… a normal person would known that going in search of something that make a monster that you couldn’t handle run is a bad idea.

    there is the probability of tamo, eating her acquiring her appearance, memories, abilities…

    or maybea new magic by Sakura

  8. I dont think yurika is dead since the ping is gray that represent death true but also he said that has a green border so she is probably still alive but barely. Probably poisoned or eaten alive and slowly melting by the plant hastric juices or sumething well gotta wait for the next chap to know

  9. Yurika acted really stupid, If she really wanted to help so much, there was always option for her to bring more adventures and go to the forest at next day or something. It’s not like enemy going to attack village right now!
    It may sound horrible but I hope she really died there and isn’t in some abnormal status only that shows her as dead in the map.

    Possibility of Tamo eating her corpse and mimic human is always an option. But it’s complex and taking appearance like that with mimic skill of lvl around 2 seems unlikely.

    Sakura revival skill or something like that, most unlikely, that would put her on par with God(s).

  10. Well, it’s natural to die easily like that for people who naive like Yurika. Justice with lack of power and brain is meaningless after all.

    1. She reminded me of Bell of “Is it wrong to pick up a girl in a dungeon”. With whole acting like a hero but she acts kind of reckless. Although I still did not want her to die either.

  11. I could put unedited version of Yurika’s perspective chapter if you want to know the reason.
    It is right after next chapter.

    She had her lesson in hard way.

    PS: 24 is done.

  12. Are you suggesting that the slime will probably eat the corpse of the girl and maybe have it’s own personality by gaining the memories of the dead girl. Sort of what happen in Master of Monsters?

  13. [How could we accept the request without neither objective nor reward?]

    This sentence sounds weird with all the negatives.

    Alt: How could we accept a request without an objective or reward?

    This is much easier to read and doesn’t make you stumble over your words.

    1. Hmm, that one I’ll poke editor-chan on before I edit, far as I know that is correct grammar, even if it did not flow so well for you. Thanks for the info ^.^

  14. Whelp.. several bits of thoughts..

    One. she probably isn’t dead, since MC gave her an extra point for then ext level of escape.. She probably is faking death.

    I wonder why the str girl isn’t using that huge strrroong axe? Its almost perfect for her.. Also I don’t think MC can use that axe very well anyway. Why? Because its property is “of the same race” and his game system makes a distinction of “from another world” So… it in theory shouldn’t count any kills he makes to the residents of this world. Mio too might not…. what with the reincarnator tagline for her..

    darn there is another note i had but i can’t remember now haha.

  15. This was unexpected… i throught the MC is good guy…. and Yurika didnt show any malice or anything to him…. it seems like the MC after this chapter is total bastard that dont help anyone who doesnt do everything he says like total robot…. MC kinda have more villain like points than hero points, cause evrything he does is kinda villain like (well he saved the girls from death but because of their skills that he needed or wanted) and even his power is villain like (skill taker)…

    1. Yes, I have to agree with you on that! The MC (Jin) had started off with legitimate and moral reasons for taking skills and was protective of Sakura who had no apparent talent in the beginning, even when she used to throw up after killing something humanoid?
      And yet now he is arrogantly and casually letting innocent people like Yurika die and taking whatever ‘useful’ self serving skills they have as he pleases without any second thought. It’s like the author changed his mind about the character after the first chapters?
      But as you say, this male protagonist is now more villain than hero.
      Alas, it’s following the shallow male OP/harem fantasy path of far too man Japanese Web/Light Novels recently…

  16. Jin is getting more of a douche with every chapter now, it seems? He took Yurika’s skills on a pretext and gave her a token boost to her escape more as as a sop to his own guilt basically…
    And I guess Yurika’s body will be going into slime harem member Tamo now?
    Far too convenient and I’m fast losing interest in this story.
    It started so well and was a bit different from the usual OP harem protagonist shtick with Jin and Sakura travelling together away from the heroes and up against the whole world…
    But it is rapidly becoming just another OP male protagonist greedily vacuuming up skills and harem girls without any real effort, drama or character development to speak of?
    Casually talking of people’s death and yet obsessing over *bleeping* rice and panties and other such stereotyped Japanese Light Novel tropes?
    Dare to be different author-san!

  17. Q: There’s a naive, idiotic elf in front of you. You know she’s totally gonna sneak away to investigate and die.
    Do you …
    A) Strongly convince her to give up; no one needs an ally of justice that just dies and helps no one
    B) Put her to sleep till morning
    C) Knock her out and warp her back to town while she’s out cold
    D) Not give a shit because it’s too troublesome to speak anymore

    Somehow being loud and annoying doesn’t mean it’s fine to let Yurika walk straight to her death and not give a shit if she dies? He saw it coming. Everyone saw it coming. It would’ve taken little effort to keep her from sneaking off to her death and yet somehow Jin’s getting off pretending to look some pragmatic MC when he’s more like a douchebag.

  18. Wow went dark quickly and everyone’s calmness is a bit scary too as they calmly talk about how she just died. But true she deserves it. Mc just explained to her not to take it but she still takes it and rushes in. Seriously heading to a monster that scared wolfs that she can’t defeat its reckless and pointless hero character without the power or luck to back it up

  19. “begins. “But aren’t you” -> {begins. [But aren’t you}
    “[N-No, I don’t.” the village” -> {[N-No, I don’t.] the village}

    There are a couple too many lines like “LV#”, before and after “Brown Mushroom” and “Rainbow Mushroom”

    Once more, thanks for the translation!!

  20. Yurika fucked herself up, she put her life on the line because of false heroism, well I bet MC will get resurrection skill now and make her a zombie and then she will evolve to vampire, this book has “vampire” tag afterall
