Hello everyone~ I swear to god that I’m gonna get my retribution for not sleeping and translating instead =W=
Damn you curiosity!!!!
Well then, please enjoy this happy chapter~
I heartlessly hunted down the zombies.
I’m currently hunting down the zombies in Nihonium’s first floor that the A Rankers half-ass-ly thought that there’s [Nothing to obtain here].
Defeating it will get me a seed, and after picking it up, it melts off on my cold hands and, a notification [Max HP up by 1 point] is heard
The monsters do drop something, what’s more it’s an item that increases your stats permanently. After intuitively realizing, I immediately hunted down the zombies.
And If I hunt down 100 of them?Then my Max HP would increase by 100 points. Such things doubted me, is it true that my status is increasing? That I do not know for sure.
As I was thinking of whether to test my theory.
I frantically searched around the first floor, but because this dungeon was decided that it’s useless, I did not come across any Know-It-All Board.
There’s no choice then, let’s head back to Shikuro?Wait, I should head to Teruru, since they offer the use of Know-It-All Board free of charge.
As I was thinking so, I was heading out to the dungeon but…
While running towards a corner, there appear to be someone there.
There lies a chibi girl while holding onto a huge hammer, it is my roomy Emily~
[What a relieve~ You’re still here, Yoda-san]
[What’s wrong Emily? Coming all the way here.]
[Since night has fallen and Yoda-san hasn’t come back home at all, I came to check and see.]
[Yeap, it’s night already.] as Emily nodded.
It’s already nighttime, I didn’t even realize at all.
[Although I have a biological clock in my body that can tell whether it’s the last train……]
[Aah, it’s nothing~]
[Yoda-san is still planning to stay here? If not, then would you come back home with me?]
[Go back now? Why though?]
[Because I’ve made you a bento and was waiting for you~]
[Well then, let’s stop for today. Let’s head back home now~]
When we were heading back home, Emily seemed ecstatic as her face is full of joy right now.
Emily and I are currently heading towards the exit of the dungeon.
We are currently in the first basement of Nihonium. Since we have dived in a little bit deeper, it will take some time for us to get out.
On the way, we encountered a zombie.
It appeared from the ground coming out from the head to its toe.
[Wa?wa?, so this is the monster for this dungeon nanodesu~]
[That’s right…..It seems that this kinds of enemy are easy for you?]
[Ah, that may be true~] she nodded. Emily had an eye that wants to fight.
The zombie’s movement is dull.
As it was coming closer, it made an [Uu?, Aa?] sound while dragging itself.
Basically, the movement is like when grandma and grandpa are strolling around the park. But we can’t let our guard down as they suddenly leaped forward at a fast speed.
Though, it is slower than the Power Type Emily, what’s more Emily has lot’s of strength.
Even if it is a zombie, I’ve got a feeling that she can even pull a preemptive strike on it.
(TLN: Oh man, y’all gonna love this~)
Emily then took a stance with her hammer.
Unlike the time when she was fighting with the hoppidy hop slimes where she had to get hit first before hitting it back, the enemy this time doesn’t use that strategy.
Having the upper hand, Emily had her hammer positioned upwards and she swung it down.
As the hammer swing down the ground, a loud sound could be heard accompanied by a sound of meat being splashed.
After lifting up the hammer, the zombie has become something like mince meat.
[Looks like you’re good against these types of enemy~]
[Yeap! But it’s a pity though, the rumours about it dropping nothing is true….]
While dancing at the easy victory, it feels as though Emily was suddenly disappointed by it.
Well if they really drop something then people would’ve already come here and made an income over it.
[As expected, if it’s Emily then nothing would come out.]
[Eh? Isn’t it that everyone can’t get anything out of here?] Emily said so confusingly while scratching her head.
As if trying to explain to her, it seems that a good timing has come where a zombie suddenly appeared. Then, holding onto the bamboo spear, I flew towards its direction.
After killing 100 of them, I’ve already memorized their movement pattern.
As I’ve predicted it, I accurately stabbed it in the head and the seed dropped.
[If I kill it, I gets the loot.]
[Oh yeah, Emily please go and pick it up~]
[Okay desu—Eh? It seems that it just pass right through my hand.]
She tried many times to grab the seed, but was only able to grab air each time.
While looking at me with a troubled expression, I went in her stead and—naturally pick it up.
[How come Yoda-san can naturally pick it up?]
[It seems like it. Has this situation happened before?]
[Nope~ Anything that is being drop is a thing and anyone would be able to pick it up. If not then we can’t sell it~]
[That’s true too]
[Aa, it disappeared~]
|——Max HP was raised by 1 point.|
[Are there any item that raises your stats?]
[What is that?]
[If you pick this up, your Max HP will go up by one, is what the sound said.]
[I’ve never heard of anything like this before.]
[Yeap. If something like that existed then you would be—extremely rich or you could become a king or even being the world’s strongest person nanodesu]
Long ago when I was playing this game, I’ve used this tactic before. Now that it’s reality, I can use it again.?
If someone were to have a status up item, they could either be filthy rich or become the world’s strongest.
Though I’ve actually used this on a character before, turning a weak character into a strong character while playing.
I’ve always think that if something like that were to exist in real life, then it would certainly break the balance of that world.
And Emily straightforwardly answered it.
If it exists then they can bring in big bucks, those who wants to use it can use it, those who don’t want to use it can use it to sell in the long run.
This kind of item shouldn’t have exist, not until today.
But because it exists, it’s currently in my hands.
I’m the only one who can make that drop appear, and also the only one able to take it…..something like that?
[…….Whether the status did increase, I wanted to check it]
[If you want to check it, remember at the entrance of the cave, there should be a place where you can check it~]
[It’s for people to use it to check their status. Most probably people seemed to have forgotten about it though.]
(TLN: I think when she meant people, it’s for those who aren’t adventurers?)
[I see….] I nodded.
Afterwards, Emily and I went out the dungeon together.
Along the way, there seem to be no zombies nearby and we safely exited the dungeon.
When we exited the dungeon, it’s as Emily had said, it’s already night-time.
Near the entrance of the dungeon, a Know-It-All board was installed there. We went near it and I raised my hands towards it.
[Eeeeee! Even though your level is still the same but your HP has increased!]
[Oh, so it did work after all.]
[Is this because of that just now nano?]
[Aa, this is the result of defeating 101 zombies.]
[That’s amazing. I’ve never heard of anyone not leveling up and still being able to up their stats~]
Emily hopped around me while looking at me with those glittering eyes.
The following morning came, I woke up first thing in the morning.
Yesterday, when Emily came to pick me up, maybe because we went back at the usual time and slept at the usual time, I’ve gotten a good night’s rest.
What’s more, it was also because of the condition of the house.
Before I rented this room, the place reeks of moldy stench. At that time, the only thing I was concerned was to [Stay] at some place fast.
There was also budget problem too.
But now we have a warm, and bright home to stay in.
It wasn’t like last time where I woke up while still feeling exhausted, but now the moment when I’m awake, it fills my chest with peace.
Near the window, I can see a bird.
It was holding onto the window frame.
It’s as if it wants to live inside here too.
The bird looks in as if it’s admiring—Emily’s House.
[Good morning, Yoda-san. Breakfast is ready~]
[Thank you. Oh, it’s omelette rice~]
[Let’s dig in—oh delish!]
The omelette rice that I’ve received was fluffy on the outside, and soft on the inside.
When chewing on the egg, a splash of rich flavour tickled my taste bud. This is happiness built on top of happiness.
[Thank you for the food, it was delish!]
[Is Yoda-san going to Nihonium again?]
[Yeap, that’s the plan~]
If I want to increase my stats, then before maxing it, I would need to dive in again.
Moreover there’s the second floor too. After maxing out my HP I should head towards it. Maybe I can even get another ability up item.
So for today, I might dive into Nihonium for a little while longer.
As I was thinking so, I felt that Emily is looking at me with a troubled expression.
[What’s wrong, having such expression~]
[Uhmm, please don’t do any rash decisions okay~]
[Yoda-san is rash. That’s why you rented this house…..At that time, you had a tired look on your face.]
Aa, something like that has happened before.
Well, since I’m used to it so it’s ok~ay~
[Since you can’t escape from a dungeon, promise me that you would return before night-time. I would be happier if you’d do it too……]
[Eh? What did you say at the end?]
[It’s, it’s nothing. Anyways, I wish that you would not do something impossible.]
—Even if you were to do overtime, you still don’t have your self-awareness like the rest of society.
(TLN: Confused @.@ ?????????????????????????????????????????)
I’ve remembered something horrible.
Even if I try to forget about it, it pops out.
As I try to forget about it, I hit my head several times.
[Alright, I promise that I would come back before night!]
[Then, I’m leaving~]
[Please come home safe!]
As Emily sent me off, I left the house.
Then, I told myself to come back home early.
Even though I’ve said that I will come back early, but I didn’t say anything about not doing any rash decisions.
While currently at the first floor of Nihonium, I am defeating the zombies with great speed.
Since I’ve promised to come back home early, I will push myself to do what must be done before night-time approaches.
Instantly kill a zombie when approaching it.
Collecting the seeds while running around.
Afterwards, seeing a zombie and immediately killing it again——
Since I’ve become able to gradually grasped the movement of the zombies, the efficiency of killing them has increased.
And so before the sun sets, I’ve power level my Max HP from C to S.
As promised, I returned home before night and Emily greeted me with a happy expression.

Thank you so much to all my patron supporters who have been helping me since the beginning, and to those who are helping me right now as well.

That’s some pretty good power leveling… Does the next floor increase a different stat? If it took him 2 days to get HP to S rank, does that mean S rank is only twice as much as C rank?
Thanks for the chapter!
randomstuffhappen · 3rd April 2017 at 4:30 AM
dun think so author never said anything about the amount of zombie that MC killed on the second day + we still dunno how much lower and upper limit of the stat rank
Jigoku Shounen · 3rd April 2017 at 4:31 AM
“Since I’ve become able to gradually grasped the movement of the zombies, the efficiency of killing them has increased.”
^ Need to notice this.
shiropyon · 3rd April 2017 at 4:32 AM
Yeap~ judging from what he said,it might be a hint on what’s to come on the next chapter :3 anyway thanks for reading it ~~ much appreciated
Trollolol · 3rd April 2017 at 7:44 AM
He probably has 500 hp now, maybe SS will be 1k and SSS 2k
shiropyon · 3rd April 2017 at 7:53 AM
Oh,that actually makes sense tho~~ so maybe there are higher rank then S
Jaegarpan · 3rd April 2017 at 3:59 AM
Woahh thank you, dont push too hard. Jaga kondisi nya
shiropyon · 3rd April 2017 at 4:33 AM
I will >w///<
Jigoku Shounen · 3rd April 2017 at 4:30 AM
This novel is surprisingly good.
Thanks for the chapters.
shiropyon · 3rd April 2017 at 4:35 AM
No problem ? and thank you for reading it 🙂
maksvasagan · 3rd April 2017 at 4:31 AM
Thanks for the chapter!!
purpl fill · 3rd April 2017 at 4:38 AM
This is a really good story and I like how its well translated, thanks for your hard work. The “do it” video was funny, lol.
shiropyon · 3rd April 2017 at 4:42 AM
I’m glad you like my translation 🙂 well since I’m going to be a teacher when I graduate from university, i need to at least have this kind of level when translating it >< and yeah when i saw the opportunity to use the word " Do it. " I immediately thought of game grumps XD
Underload · 3rd April 2017 at 4:43 AM
Picking 101 seeds increased his stats to c. Another day and maybe 200 seeds upped it to s. Does that mean an s rank health only amounts to about 300- 400 hp?
Rasta · 3rd April 2017 at 4:47 AM
Thank you for the chapter! He’s going to be so OP… Well, who cares?
wingnod · 3rd April 2017 at 4:58 AM
I was bored. Thank you.
Technomo12 · 3rd April 2017 at 5:04 AM
HP in term can be vaguely converted in quantity values but in a term that is not so gamely system
What im trying to say is that 200-400+ hp pts which is = S rank could vaguely interpreted as having a very healthy vigor or resistance to dakage to a certain degre?
I mean mc can be killed with a wooden stake with a rank f hp but maybe with a rank s hp thwt cant happen and he can be killed easily by metal class weapons?
Again talking vaguely due to the vague stat value being interpred
So we can only wait for mor chapters
Technomo12 · 3rd April 2017 at 5:05 AM
Sorry auto correct is messing with my spellings
Milanin · 3rd April 2017 at 5:17 AM
I’m here to place a curse one chapter before it happens. Because I don’t know if I’ll be around when chapter 5 comes around (with the pace this translation is going, even though it’s a lot of characters per chapter… personally reached chapter 13 though) to be among the first people there…
Milanin · 3rd April 2017 at 5:19 AM
May whoever likes the next female character that pops up writhe in pain! She’s got a cute quirk but she’s evil I tell you! Death is more forgiving! If you’re not MC, you’d better not involve yourself with her! — Also, Chapters 10 and 11 are quite unique… A tiny black slime that makes a gasagasa sound…
sfcipher · 3rd April 2017 at 5:20 AM
Thanks for the chapter.
Dark Jackel · 3rd April 2017 at 5:55 AM
Talk about late bloomers… Those two need to realize that they are already a couple… ?
Trollolol · 3rd April 2017 at 7:48 AM
He can’t give her his seed though
shiropyon · 3rd April 2017 at 7:52 AM
That sounded so wrong men XD
Ynver · 3rd April 2017 at 6:50 AM
Ah again. It tugs my frail heart. Sweet and warm like a cup of hot chocolate drink. A little bitter for tugging heart strings.
Bruno102 · 3rd April 2017 at 7:38 AM
Thanks for the chapter! Again! uff 🙁 it seems that the power up of emily is not possible, i just expect that she will not be a weak character forever (i hate when the authors do that – when she is one of the people that support the MC from the beginning (when he is weak))
Otaku101s · 5th April 2017 at 12:24 AM
I think in the later chapters he will able to give her S Rank equipments. I mean the sypnosis clearly stated S Ranked equipments
shiropyon · 5th April 2017 at 12:27 AM
Yeap~~~ can’t wait for that to happen when i finish translating that chapter 🙂
hexwolfx · 3rd April 2017 at 7:50 AM
mazeeeee · 3rd April 2017 at 8:03 AM
Thanks for the update,
Shiro san, more pleasee
muddie202 · 3rd April 2017 at 8:30 AM
At least he has a way for him to get if he can’t level~ I wonder if the reason he can pick it up is because he’s level 1?
evatriae · 3rd April 2017 at 8:57 AM
Thanks for the chap
ragingpatatas · 3rd April 2017 at 10:59 AM
Thanks for the translation, I’m insta hook 🙂
lygarx · 3rd April 2017 at 11:48 AM
This whole Ranking system has inspired me to make a pseudo stats system on RPG maker based on this.
Noxy · 3rd April 2017 at 12:16 PM
Keep up the good work. So far this seems to be an interesting novel.
Kaede Nika Suvorsky · 3rd April 2017 at 1:28 PM
S rank from C rank on the next day, really? how much did he kill to reach that?
Thanks for the chapter.
Stephanie · 4th April 2017 at 5:14 AM
Thanks for translating this, I’m really enjoying it so far!
shiropyon · 4th April 2017 at 10:20 AM
No problem ~~~glad you enjoy it 🙂
udin-san · 5th April 2017 at 5:46 PM
Fast! S already?
shiropyon · 5th April 2017 at 5:50 PM
Our MC is that crazy when it comes to grinding XD
thesilence2017 · 20th April 2017 at 10:23 PM
Oh my, RPG is so intense! 😀
Shiro · 20th April 2017 at 10:27 PM
It’s gonna get even better 🙂
gantono · 9th July 2017 at 9:23 PM
Japanese workaholic habit is terrifying~ when our nation lazy habit that run deep in our blood that make our place terrific
thanks for chap
animemanganovelfiction · 4th August 2017 at 12:29 PM
so S rank in HP is between 200 to 300 Point, i think it’s to low if it’s the Apex, maybe there is still Rank SS and SSS and maybe there is even Rank above that Like G for God! ahahahaha 😀
thx for the chapter ^^
habib1100 · 14th November 2017 at 1:52 AM
Thanks for doing this chapter!?
Nebyeleul Demeke · 30th November 2017 at 3:07 PM
Is there a mistake with the Know it all board STATS? It says he still has an F in HP but they act like it increased…Im of the confused!!!
Shiro · 1st December 2017 at 1:28 AM
It’s me sorry >< since I was changing to a new format i think I mixed up some stats ><
Sora · 28th December 2017 at 12:32 PM
Something like leaving on time, you don’t have enough self-awareness as a member of society.
MrTrixer · 15th March 2018 at 5:56 AM
That kind of girl is a keeper Yoda-san, make sure not to lose her. Finding a gem like that, lucky guy.
Thank you for the chapter and the treat! (^_^)/
OverCipher · 3rd October 2018 at 12:18 PM
“Lets dig in.Oh Delish” omg that part made me laugh so much bahahha loved it man :3
Aby · 12th March 2019 at 5:54 PM
This translation is super nice. Good to see a translator who knows his stuff.
grassfedbutter · 14th July 2020 at 7:23 PM
I read the raws and would recommend changing these two sentences even though it’s been a while since this chapter was released.
1) “Since you can’t escape from a dungeon, promise me that you would return before night-time. I would be happier if you’d do it too……” it should not be since you can’t escape from a dungeon, but “Since the dungeon won’t escape…” as Emily is making a point that the dungeon wouldn’t suddenly disappear so he doesn’t need to rush.
2) “ Even if you were to do overtime, you still don’t have your self-awareness like the rest of society…” The Japanese raw here is most likely alluding to a time when the MC was still working overtime at his company and his superior chastising him for thinking that he’ll be able to leave on time for work. Something along the lines of “Not having to work overtime, do you really think that is permitted as an upstanding member of society??” The idea being that working overtime is a norm in Japan, and those that naively think they can leave work on time do not have the self awareness of what it means to be a 社会人 (member of society).
Anyways thanks for the hard work!
