TL: So apparently someone is also translating this novel????? I have mailed the translator about it and waiting for a response. I hope you keep continuing reading my translation. Enjoy this chapter.
“Good work” (Tatusuro)
“You too” (Ai)
They gave each other words of encouragement and activated their own systems to check the results of the battle.
Name: Ai Yashiki
Magic power: 3
Muscle strength: 240
Magic Power: 1
Magic Resistance: 1
Magic Control: 1
《Martial art God》 《Jiu-Jitsu Lv.3》 《Stick Art Lv.1》 《Throwing Lv.6》
Remaining Skill Points: 15
“I don’t believe it. This is definitely not the status of a level 5 player.” (Tatsuro)
“Well, then, what about you, Tatsuro?” (Ai)
“Me? I’m normal” (Tatsuro)
Name: Tatsuro Hasami
Magic power: 60
Muscle strength: 20
Magic Power: 20
Magic Resistance: 20
Magic Control: 15
Remaining skill points: 24
“Wait. Why do you have (24) skill points at level 3? That’s not normal at all.” (Ai)
“Oh, that’s right. It seems that the “Level Eater” can also absorb the skill level of the opponent and convert it into its own skill points. So the breakdown is that it was there from the start (3), two levels up (6), and I took it away from the caterpillar’s skill, so that’s (15).” (Tatsuro)
(So numerically, if you take away a Lv.3 skill, it’s “1 + 2 + 3”, and if it’s Lv.2, it’s “1 + 2.)
As Tatsuro was calculating a more detailed breakdown, Ai approached him.
“Hey, hey, doesn’t that mean you can take all the skills you want?” (Ai)
“Well, I’m relieved to see that my skills are pretty cheat too. If I hadn’t done what I did, the difference between us would have gotten bigger and bigger.” (Tatsuro)
“I think it would be better that way.” (Ai)
“I don’t think you can ask for something you don’t have.” (Tatsuro)
As he was stroking Ai’s head and playing with it, he suddenly saw something moving in the corner of his eye.
“What’s wrong? You can pet me more if you want.” (Ai)
“No, that’s fine, but …… is that one caterpillar over there still alive?” (Tatsuro)
He turned Ai, who had been rubbing her head on Tatsuro’s chest, toward the direction where she had been throwing stones earlier.
“Oh? Looks like everything’s dead….. right?” (Ai)
“I’m going to go get some skill points.” (Tatsuro)
“Well, I don’t want to get too close……. Can you go alone?” (Ai)
“Yeah, he’s really weak, he’s going to die even if I leave him alone, I’ll be fine.” (Tatsuro)
“Okay, well, just go and come back safely.” (Ai)
With a slight wave of his hand, Tatsuro ran up to the only barely alive individual among the crushed caterpillar wreckage and used the Level Eater.
Skills: 《Body slam Lv.5》, 《Thread Spitting Lv.5》, 《Bite Lv.5》.
《Leadership Lv.1》 , 《Self Regeneration Lv.1》
Oh! this one is much stronger than mine.
And if I look closely, I think it’s about a size bigger than the others, so it might have been their boss.
If I leave the 《Self Regeneration》, he might be able to survive. …… Oh well, I’ll take it then.
Skills: 《Body slam Lv.0》, 《Thread Spitting Lv.0》, 《Bite Lv.0》.
《Leadership Lv.0》 , 《Self Regeneration Lv.0》
For a moment, he felt the urge to save him, but then he thought, why go to all this trouble and safe him? He just took it all without mercy.
It is not the time to show mercy to a single insect in a situation where he does not know what is right and wrong.
And so, Tatsuro’s skill points is now (71).
“Well, goodbye, then. The caterpillar with no name.” (Tatsuro)
He clasped his hands together once in a silent prayer and left.
“Welcome back, dear. Do you want to eat? Would you like a bath? Or maybe….. m-” (Ai)
“You please!” (Tatsuro)
“Too soon! I didn’t even finish it!” (Ai)
“You please!” (Tatsuro)
“Wai, eh, really, I?!” (Ai)
When Ai panicked, Tatsuro hugged her, saying, “You’re so cute,” and held her tightly in his arms to prevent her from escaping.
“Yeah, …… I hate to do it in a place like this, but …… if you want to do it Tatsurou, …… umm, but …… my first time I want it in a nicer place, …… ” (Ai)
“………… No, I’m sorry you’re thinking too much about it, but I’m just kidding. I don’t want to do it in a place where there are dead caterpillars scattered around.” (Tatsuro)
“Rrrrrrrrrright. Ooooooof course I knew that. It was a panicked act.” (Ai)
“Yes, yes” (Tatsuro)
“One is yes enough” (Ai)
After a minute or so of hugging each other, they pulled away and decided to discuss their future plans.
“Well, the first thing we need to do is use the skill points we’ve accumulated to activate the map function, right?” (Ai)
“That’s right. That’s what I’m going to do first. My skill points are practically limitless. You can save yours for now, Ai.” (Tatsuro)
“I also want to get the map skill because it looks so useful.” (Ai)
“Well, yeah. But there are things you need to try to understand, like how accurate the map is and how easy it is to use.” (Tatsuro)
“I guess you’re right.” (Ai)
“Oh, and maybe I can share it with the party, just like status, and I’ll make it my priority to take any skills that are worth experimenting with.” (Tatsuro)
“Ugh, I’m sorry as always.” (Ai)
“It’s alright, my child” (Tatsuro)
“Why acting like a father!” (Ai)
The two of them proceeded with the conversation after they had softened the atmosphere with their mysterious comedy.
“Now, I’d like to take the map function.” (Tatsuro)
“Wa ~pachi pachipachi~ ” (Ai) [ TL: Clapping sound]
Lightly brushing off Ai’s cheers, I activated the system, selected the map function from the skill list, and used (9) skill points to activate it.
Then a new item was added to the startup screen.
Money in possession: 0
Tatsuro thought about touching the map as it was, but then he thought it would be quicker to look up the location directly in the help section than to have it give him the forest terrain, so he activated ‘help’.
(Where am I? …… Amneri Great Forest in the territory of the Helldamned Nation. Where the hell is that?
So how far away is Japan from here? …… There is no such country as Japan in the first place.
Then what about Japan? …There is the Republic of Japonercion …….Definitely not that one.…….
Is this Earth in the first place? I don’t know the planet …… Earth……..)
Once there, Tatsuro turned off the system and turned his attention to Ai. Reading the air from the serious expression on Ai’s face, he straightened his posture.
“Well, I have some regretful news here.” (Tatsuro)
“It seems that this is neither Japan nor Earth.” (Tatsuro)
“And by that, you mean …….” (Ai)
“—–It means it’s another world.” (Tatsuro)
