I’m back~

Editing note: I changed Emily’s way of speech to be more normal to read, instead of all those “nodesu” or “nanodesu”. Tell me what you think of it~ Should I do this or keep back the original? I’ll put a poll below.

I went to Nihonium’s second floor during the morning to increase my Strength up until A, and later head to Teruru as per usual.

What greeted me at the entrance of Teruru was the usual Emily who is smiling gently.

Afterwards, we went into the dungeon.

Not even a minute has passed and we’ve already encounter a monster, thus I took out my gun on reflex but…

[Eh? This Slime is slightly different from the rest.]

[Ah, It’s a Slime Bros.]

[Slime Bros….] (TLN: The jap is ???)

I lowered my gun and tried searching my memory.

I feel like I’ve heard of this name before, what’s more it’s quite recent.

[….Is it that monster who dropped me?]


Emily firmly nodded.

The Slime in front of me which is moving in a relaxing manner, looks like every other slimes I’ve encountered, though the only difference is it’s color which is subtly different and lengthwise it’s slightly taller.

I get it now, this was the monster who dropped me, a rare monster that dropped me that is from a different world.

[WOW a rare monster—…..Oh someone was already ahead of us.]

The slime who is near the entrance, was seen by a different adventurers, but they had a disappointed look on their face when they saw us and went ahead of us.

[What was that just now?]

[Rare monsters follows a first come, first served basis. Unless we couldn’t defeat it, then only someone else can come and defeat it, though we can easily defeat the Slime Bros~]

It’s a first come first serve basis for rare monsters huh, I’ve learnt another new rule for this world.

[Well then, shall we defeat it.]

I hold up my gun again, and aimed at it.

I wonder, this Slime Bros, should I defeat it outside of the dungeon or inside the dungeon.

To begin with, I am different from the people who are living in this world, the items that are dropped from monsters are different because of my S Drop Rate.

Regardless whether it’s inside the dungeon, or outside the dungeon.

What’s more, the items that drop differ when I defeat monsters inside and outside of the dungeon.

Though the confusion only lasted for a second, as I remembered about the Cockroach Slimes.

Since it’s possible to get a normal item even if you defeat a rogue monster from outside the dungeon.

So going in order, one should first defeat a monster from within the dungeon.


[It’s nothing, let’s defeat it]

[Yes~] (TLN: She use katakana)

As I was excited what I was gonna get from the drop, I shot at the Slime Bros.

Although it’s a rare monster, but maybe it was from the same floor as those weak slimes, it was defeated in one hit.

The Slime Bros vanished, and “Pon” an item has dropped.

[This is? A ring?]

[I am not sure. Since we do not know much about rare monsters, hence people always say that anticipating what you get is what makes it fun~]

[I see.]

Being convinced, I bend down my knees and picked up the ring.

At that moment.

[Ah, a times two drop rate.]

[You understand?]

[It seems like an array of information is being transmitted into my head right now.]

I’m not kidding, the information is currently transmitting inside my head.

It happened as soon as I picked up the ring, it’s as if remembering back the past memories I had.

This ring is definitely an equipment, and if you equip it and defeat a monster, the item that is dropped will double up.

[Is there something like this?]

[Have you not heard of it before?]


[No wonder.]

If that’s so, then let’s test it out.

As I wanted to wear the ring, it slipped off from my finger.

The ring dropped and rolled to the direction of Emily, Emily then picked it up, and handed it over to me.

[Here you go~]

[…..You can hold it?]


[It’s different from when you tried taking the seed…..Emily, you can have that.]

[You mean me?]



Emily nodded, and wear the ring by herself.


Arsenic, second floor.

We stopped the daily routine of hunting carrots, and bring along Emily here.

The ring is now being worn by Emily, and since I want to test out the drop effect of the ring, coming here is the best choice.

I thought of it and brought her here.

[Let’s get started~]

[Good luck.]

Emily smiled from my cheer, bear her hammer and head towards the direction of the monsters.

Dante Rock, a rock shape monster which drops Dandelion.

Since I’ve increased my Strength to A from grinding at seeds, I tried kicking at a small size Dante Rock that is rolling between my feet, but it’s still rock solid.

Though my Strength is now A, it’s still difficult to defeat the rock without a weapon—Well even if it’s difficult it’s not like I would die as a result from it.

As I lightly give up on handling the monsters in this dungeon, I watched over Emily.

She swung the hammer, Dokon!

Again she swung the hammer, Dokon.

Dokon, Dokon, Do~kon!

Emily went around swinging down her hammer on the rocks.

Basically she went around swinging her hammer nonstop while I’m following from behind picking up the drops.

While smashing her hammer, an hour or so has passed while venturing around the first floor, and I’ve collected around 200 Dandelions.

Since the number of parameter has increased, I made an assumption.

Even when wearing the ring, the probability of getting a drop did not change.

Rather, when an item drops, the amount is doubled.

Though it’s just a speculation, but compare to yesterday’s drop, the amount today has indeed doubled, I confirmed it because of the amount we have today has increased.

I called Emily to stop, and explain to her.

[Wow~ This ring is amazing~]

[That’s right, because if one were to wear this, their productivity will double.]


Emily smiled, and took off the ring and handed it over to me.

I looked at the ring for a brief moment, and pushed it back to her.

[You can continue wearing it.]

[Eh? But…..]

[Since it suits Emily when you wear it, like so.]

[Is, is that so?]


A ring that has a X2 drop rate where Emily used and smashed at all those rocks.

To tell you the truth, I was watching at her for a moment.

If I were to use this ring, it could indeed increase my productivity, I even thought of using it on Nihonium and it would increase the number of drops for the seeds.

Nonetheless, I thought that it looks good on Emily, and it’s better if she has it.

[I understand, I will defeat a lot of monsters~]

[You can do it! I’ll cheer for you!]

Emily had a bright smile on her face.

Afterwards, she started hunting down on more rocks, and I collected more Dandelions.

At the end of the day, the total earning was 12k Piro, it’s many times more than yesterday’s income(5k Piro), it might be because her tension was high today, as I thought to myself.

TLN Note: I’m sorry for the rather short/long hiatus but I’ve finally finish my assignments!!!(For now). So I can finally start posting more again~

Another thing, I don’t know whether I should put the Slime Bros, bros, or broth. Cause both of it has the same katakana. Vote here~

And also, for Emily’s dialogue right here~

      “(TLN: She use katakana)” no.. she SPOKE. there is no such thing as speaking in katakana, only writing. And even then there is no meaning and its a distraction from the story to make a note of it in the middle of trying to read the story.

      Shiro · 20th April 2017 at 11:33 PM

      Hahaha XD that would be like 20 X2 rings…Omg!!! The potential !!!!

      synthous · 21st April 2017 at 6:39 AM

      “But you’re already OP, and I don’t want to describe “slime dropped 1024 carrots in one go.” No. This is a plot device because the author is a little slow.”

dragons33 · 20th April 2017 at 9:05 PM

Thanks for the chapter.

    Shiro · 20th April 2017 at 9:11 PM

    Thanks for reading 🙂

Mesmerised · 20th April 2017 at 9:18 PM

Thanks for the chapter!
It’ll be good to just borrow it from Emily when he is grinding for stats and rogue though.

Erwin · 20th April 2017 at 9:28 PM

Thanks for the chapter ~!!!

Tup · 20th April 2017 at 9:31 PM

Thanks for the chapter

I prefer emily speech using “nanodesu” because it reminds me of certain dog girl

mem · 20th April 2017 at 9:34 PM

nanodesu masterrace!!!

    -Codorniu- · 20th April 2017 at 10:48 PM

    well, he gifted it to Emily, so i doubt that he is gonna try to use it at all.

      Shiro · 20th April 2017 at 10:57 PM

      Maybe he can just get another one….Who knows 🙂

      Who Know~~ · 21st April 2017 at 5:04 PM

      Well if he take another ring i just wannaa say “COME ON AUTHORYOU’RE JUST CREATR A CHARACTER LIVING CHEAT DROP AND KNOW.YOU GIVE HIM DOUBLE DROP” and thx shiro for the update take care yourself

        Shiro · 21st April 2017 at 5:09 PM

        No problem~ thanks for reading and caring for my health >< I'll stop myself if I'm really not feeling well

fatpanda · 20th April 2017 at 9:47 PM

Thanks for the chapters.
Please keep it.
Now to find a matching one for him.

udin-san · 20th April 2017 at 9:55 PM

Strength stat reached A, he’s one step closer into OPness
I wonder if magic exist? there’s INT stat, right?

~Traveling Chef~ · 20th April 2017 at 9:59 PM

ahh thanks~

FinzRaizer · 20th April 2017 at 10:05 PM

more like Slime Boss ?

    Diggydawg · 20th April 2017 at 10:43 PM

    the “?” in ??? is pronounced “RO” i believe, so comes out as “BU-RO-Su”

    running it through google translate comes up with “Broth”… so, Slime Broth? 😛

    trollololol · 20th April 2017 at 11:33 PM

    Slime Bros would work, typically you’d have to imagine 3 slimes stacked on top of each other in a pillar.

      Shiro · 20th April 2017 at 11:33 PM

      Oh…That sounds adorable though XD

Bruno102 · 20th April 2017 at 11:00 PM

Thanks for the chapter!
He geted A-rank strenght in the previous chapters if my memory don’t fail me

21th finger · 20th April 2017 at 11:01 PM

MC has more slender fingers than Emily.

    Shiro · 20th April 2017 at 11:18 PM

    Ikr XD can’t believe he can’t wear it but Emily can…Maybe cause Emily always carry around the hammer…

Ryan Tift · 20th April 2017 at 11:11 PM

Well that was a complete waste of a good item.

    hallowedthings · 21st April 2017 at 10:36 PM

    I know lol her drop rate sucks so what’s the point? If the MC just keeps it he can double his rare drops… He can sell more stuff, buy a good cart faster, and get the house for himself & Emily faster…

    I’d say he can get stronger faster too but it’s not that kind of story so I don’t think that matters.

    Ah whatever, I’m just going to turn a blind eye… not like this crazy world makes any sense logistically / economically anyway xD

      Karsus · 30th October 2019 at 8:30 AM

      Or logically. They said that drop item turns back into monsters when left unattended… but absolutely everything is a drop item.
      Do they have to keep every food item they own at arms reach all the time until they eat it?

Dark Jackel · 20th April 2017 at 11:33 PM

Thanks for the chapter! ?

    Shiro · 20th April 2017 at 11:34 PM

    Your welcome ~~ hopefully you didn’t wait for long ><

MisleadingCowman · 20th April 2017 at 11:38 PM

Slime Bros … Ultimate wing man 😀

Thanks for the chapter (¬º3º)¬ ~~<3

    Shiro · 21st April 2017 at 11:43 AM

    Welcome ~~~ w<)

Thanks for the chapter
“kept you waiting,huh” Snake 2017

    Shiro · 21st April 2017 at 3:27 AM

    haha XD sorry for keeping y’all waiting :3 I’m finally back~

odorico13 · 21st April 2017 at 2:13 AM

It makes no sense to hand the ring over to her if the effect used on her would be infinitely better….

sfcipher · 21st April 2017 at 3:05 AM

Thanks for the chapter.

Rasta · 21st April 2017 at 4:11 AM

Thank you for the chapter! When I saw the gif, I thought it would be the dramatic gifting, where the dense-as-a-rock-MC would just gift the ring to the heroine(s), and then the heroine would misunderstand. I’m not sure if I should be happy that this was subverted, or sad cause Emily’s the best choice.

    Shiro · 21st April 2017 at 10:07 AM

    I WISH…I wish it was like in the .gif, but sadly, some things don’t go smoothly as I think it would be… Anyways, thanks for reading the chapter :3

Rasta · 21st April 2017 at 4:15 AM

Actually, though it’s just a theory, the ring might not work, just because of his stats. I know his stats just affect the size, but the ring and him just not be compatible. It might have slipped off because of that. I mean, this is a world where people can’t farm or anything, and dungeons drop everything, I think the rings and stuff would be one-fits-all.

purpl phl · 21st April 2017 at 6:18 AM

Thank you for the chapter.

    Shiro · 21st April 2017 at 10:09 AM

    Thanks for reading this chapter >W<

Dkwnalex · 21st April 2017 at 7:24 AM

Name is likely slime boros? Also, i prefer nanodesu and nodesu as it adds to her character. Plus, its cuter like a certain dog eared girl and cat eared girl

    Shiro · 21st April 2017 at 10:09 AM

    YES! Tell that to my stupid editor-san! Well, i thought of boros too before, but I got a feeling the author wanted to name it like in super mario bros? cause the katakan for it is Bu Ro Su instead of Bo Ro Su.

Kaede Nika Suvorsky · 21st April 2017 at 2:44 PM

……..Thanks for the chapter.

    Shiro · 21st April 2017 at 4:04 PM

    Your welcome~~ :3

muddie202 · 21st April 2017 at 3:18 PM

Ah he’s so oblivious. Thank you for the chapter!

Atanaxia · 22nd April 2017 at 8:58 PM

Thanks for the chapter~~~!

Gifting a ring to a girl you’re living with………Kyaaa~~~!

lebleu · 23rd April 2017 at 6:28 PM

yes its better without nodesu and nanodesu that thing is really annoying~

    Shiro · 23rd April 2017 at 7:07 PM

    well, i know but people have already voted that with is better, so I’m extremely sorry if you don’t really like it >W<

ricecal · 6th July 2017 at 9:51 AM

Thank you very much

Gantono · 10th July 2017 at 3:07 PM

1st harem member LOCKED by wedding uhm, 2x ring

animemanganovelfiction · 4th August 2017 at 8:27 PM

a Ring that hs reach the realm of Cheat ahahaha 😀

thx for the chapter ^^

Alter-Ego · 4th October 2017 at 6:50 PM

Ring gives x2 quantity of drop and he just leave it to F-rate-loot character… He could just give her ring after 2-nd rare slime and incom of 2 same rings…
Whatever. MC done lot of stupid thing since the 1-t chapter so nothing incredible happened.
I’m not sure that i’ll continue reading this series… It’s just too freaking stupid.
By the way thanks for translations Shiro, you doing great.

habib1100 · 14th November 2017 at 1:21 PM

Thanks for doing this chapter!?

saphsaph · 23rd December 2017 at 7:50 PM

I’m almost dropping this LN because of his idiocy…

The ring is almost the last straw…

He could literally buy her a frickin awesome diamond cool ring with all the money he would make from using it…

    Shiro · 24th December 2017 at 2:10 AM

    I understand it’s stupid at first, with his idiocy going to places, but after translating it at chapter 111(current), I find that it’s rather interesting as I see not only the MC grow, but the way the Author writes grow too in the process, but don’t make me stop you from it.

    Anyways, thanks for reading till this far though!

DMR · 5th January 2018 at 1:19 PM

He should use that ring for when he tries to level up his stats -_-

And it’s better income for his family (which is what they are at this point).

Thanks for the chapter XD

Evan boomz · 4th June 2018 at 5:28 AM

He’s too stupid to be the MC. I’m dropping this novel right here. Bye.

Terror100 · 24th March 2019 at 10:16 AM

Realy wtf why are mc always this stupid
You have a S in drop rate you can make 10x more money then here on your own in ghe same time
Aee all japanese authors stupid
A little bit of stupidity I would say oke but it’s getting worse and worse
Thanks for the translatsion

    Rondo Inu · 7th May 2019 at 12:54 PM

    I think the author is just bad. First the thing with the first and second floor skeletons and now this. He can’t even wear the ring, so he couldn’t use it on gaining items anyway. He literally handed it to Emily for testing after being unable to equip it himself.

    As I wanted to wear the ring, it slipped off from my finger.

    The ring dropped and rolled to the direction of Emily, Emily then picked it up, and handed it over to me.

    [Here you go~]

    […..You can hold it?]


    [It’s different from when you tried taking the seed…..Emily, you can have that.]

Yo · 8th June 2019 at 5:41 AM

Third time trying to read this novel… I hope ill pass the ordeals to keep reading…

MC its just a guy with no brain… Not even stupid, brain dead…

I suppose one has to read this with a very veeeery open mind…

Thanks for the chapter.

Night · 25th February 2021 at 9:43 AM

Imagine stacking like thirty of those and killing a cockroach slime. An explosion of gigantic pumpkins!

You could use it like a weapon, instantly filling all space with pumpkin and squashing everything to death…
