I feel like I’m translating faster and faster as time goes by~ Idk why but the featured image made me laugh when I’m reading this chapter.


While being at Nihonium in the morning, I reunited with a group that I’d encountered previously on the first floor.

The 4 gofer that has a supervisor ordering them, and the never-changing my-pace Princess Margaret that gives off a fluttery feeling.

Again with the Air Box, I guess it does sell well, as I was thinking about it I wanted to bypass them and head straight to the third floor, but.

I noticed that the box that they were carrying is different compared to last time.

The box that they were holding is a square shape box that is 30cm on all four sides. The only thing special about the box is that on one of the six sides of the box, one of it is in full white.

What a strange box, as I thought too myself. Thus, I went ahead and ask the guy that is supervising.

[Excuse me, but what is that box you’re holding?]

[Un? Ah, we’ve met before.]

Since the opposite remembers me, it will be easier to ask.

[This is, a tool that we bet our whole fortune on that is developed by our company, it is called a .]

It feels like when the guy is speaking, they are some lines coming out from the guy’s back.

But still, a Pandora Box eh, what a grandeur naming sense.

[So what does it do?]

[You’ve heard of a right.]

[Nope.]

[Oh, you don’t know. Then, have you heard of people who are particular about cleanliness (germaphobic) and would not eat things that are being touched by others or things that are being dropped in the dungeon?]

[……There must be people like that.]

Though I’ve never seen it in real life, but I’m pretty sure they are people who are like that.

[The is built for the sake of these people, when you activate this magic item, the drop that you get after defeating a monster will be sucked inside this box.If you were to do this then nobody will be touching your drop, or the drop would not fall on the ground.]

[Ah, I see.]

I was reminded of the method I’ve mastered yesterday.

It was the method of defeating the Slime on top of the Magic Cart and letting the drop automatically land inside the cart.

[Thinking of this as the base, our company has bet on a whopping 300 million Piro to develop this Pandora Box! Look at it!]

After the guy finished speaking, the [Air Hunt] begin.

A Skeleton appeared, and the 4 gofer weakened it, then finally Princess Margaret dealt the final blow.

Once the Skeleton vanished, the Pandora Box then sucked the drop inside.

Afterwards, the white surface had the princess face printed on it.

[Well, that’s the gist of it. Whoever defeats the monster and gets the drop, the face will be shown on the white surface.]

[It’s to display the Producer’s face huh.]

[Yeap. Cause once in a while, there are some people who doubt whether Princess Margaret is the one getting the air. If it’s this then we can finally prove it.]

[I, I see.]

They really think this through.

[You’re an adventurer right? I have a few Pandora Boxes around, I’ll give these to you so please promote it to your friends okay.]

After finishing his lines, the guy took out 5 Pandora Box and pushed it towards me.

I don’t mind publicizing it for you, but I don’t think it has any use for me.

I’m now at Nihonium’s third floor beating up Mummies while collecting the Speed Seed.

Since there weren’t any accident, I was able to continue through the entire morning, and managed to increase my Speed from E to D.

Since I’ve finish my daily routine of increasing my ability, I was thinking of heading out of the dungeon when I suddenly thought of an idea.

This Pandora Box, no wait Collection Box.

Is it possible to collect the seeds, and once collected, can I release it outside?

After having this idea, I immediately went back to the first floor.

The first floor is Skeletons, and they drop HP Seeds because of my unique skills.

If I can collect these seeds outside then the first person I want to give is my housemate Emily. If that’s the case then I should get HP up first.

I activated the box, and defeat a Skeleton.

The seed was drop——and it was being sucked into the box!

This, this might actually work!

I was rejoicing, and filled up the box with HP seeds, and finally went out of Nihonium.

[I can’t take it….]

I met with Emily and took out the box right away, wanting to let her pick up the seeds, but it seems that she wasn’t able to take the seeds after all.

[I see……]

[As expected, Yoda-san is the only one who can pick it up nodesu.]

[I thought this might actually work. That’s why I brought these outside the dungeon to test.]

[It can’t be helped nodesu. I guess the seeds are designed specifically for Yoda-san to use nodesu.]

Emily wasn’t dejected.

I thought that I can help her MAX out her ability with this, but I guess it won’t go as planned.

[It’s too bad. So what am I gonna do with these.]

[The only way is to make these items rogue monsters. What was it that the Skeleton drop again?]

[It’s Freeze Bullets. Well, if I change my way of thinking and collect a chunk of Freeze Bullet then——]

I stopped talking. Wait a minute.

At that moment, something clicked in my head.

All this time, the only way I can get the Freeze Bullets is if I lure the Skeleton outside the dungeon and immediately defeat it.

Why is it that I go through all that trouble? Well that’s because the moment I pick up the seeds, it immediately disappears. Thus I have to wait for the Skeleton to come out by itself to turn it into a rogue monster.

Though when someone else defeats it, it turns into air—-Just to confirm air will not spawn rogue monsters.

Well, that is the reason why it’s difficult to get Freeze Bullets.

But, with this whatever Pandora/Collection Box, I can use it to collect a huge sum of seeds.

While finish talking in my mind, I left the box at a far away distance, and left.

After waiting for a while, the box ruptured, and the seeds turned into rogue Skeletons all at once.

I hold onto my trusty gun, and rapidly fired away.

Defeating almost 50 Skeletons without letting them get away.

Afterwards, they all dropped Freeze Bullets.

Last time it was so hard to just get one of it, now all of a sudden I have 50 Freeze Bullets.

[Yoda-san is awesome desu~]

[No, not yet.]

[Eh?]

[If I can do this——]

After coming out of NIhonium Dungeon, I went to a secluded place and left the Pandora Box on the ground.

I left the place, and wait for it—-then a huge amount of zombies were hatched.

Since I have surplus of it, I’m confident about using it.

I loaded a Freeze Bullet, and shoot at the ground where the 50 Zombies are, freezing half of their bodies, and then shoot their heads one by one.

Afterwards, what was dropped was different from the 50 Freeze Bullets.

I pick them up, and loaded one into my gun, and aimed at a nearby tree and fired.

At that exact moment, a Magic Circle appeared——and the tree was on fire!

The bullets that I got from the Zombies trapped inside the Pandora Box, was actually a Flame Bullet that shoots out fire.

At that moment, another possibility has been born from hunting in Nihonium.


Translator Note: Sorry for those who are misunderstanding the Pandora Box, but it seems that the Pandora Box did in fact broke, because the next chapter, he will be using all 4 of the Pandora Boxes. I also think that when he used the second box he took it all out and waited for it to “hatch”, hence why he used such strange word to describe the rogue monsters.

    thx for the chapter ^^

  2. it development process, not profit from selling many of the box will gain much more I guess
    thanks for chap

  3. Great release as usual! You are spoiling me by releasing these daily! I love it! And everyone! $3/month isn’t that much considering he’s pumping out a chapter a day! Donate!

    • haha I’m glad that you love it :3 I do try my best to continue posting out since I’m free and all >///< Again thank you so much for leaving such lovely comment here~ It made my day :3

  4. Thank you for the chapter! …Are people really that stupid to develop a 300 million Pandora Box? And then give away 5? Also, it was a sweet but futile gesture from Takumi to Emily… but instead he gets flame bullets. Actually, why have a gun in a fantasy world? Can’t you just have flame or freeze arrows? Actually, why aren’t anyone questioning the gun?

    • Well, that was development price, not production price and considering those five was the price for advertisement, at least they’re not really that stupid.

      • I guess. it’s just that they spent a crap ton of money on a product to hold air. And what happens if Ryota gives it to some corrupt yet smart person, who manages to replicate it?

    • … and by the way about the gun, people was already questioning it the time it came out and yes I think bringing out guns to fantasy setting was unnecessary too. First I thought he would learn some cqc or melee weapon since his physical stats improved.

      • Yeah, a bow would actually require the strength stats, since actually drawing a bow needs more strength than lifting a sword… But everyone was just like “Woah! What kind of magic was that?!” Normally, some merchant or magician would try to investigate him. One does not usually leave such talent alone.

        • Normally they would. This series likely want to focus on heartwarming slice-of-life without any conflict. But that also means there are no plot advancement. It’s not exciting at all.

          • Yeah, even romantic progress is ignored the next chapter. Still, I’d love to see another isekai bow user. Or a bow user in anything. Tsuki Ga Michibiku shouldn’t be the only one.

          • Only sense and VRMMO ossan use bow. Both are VR game Japanese web novel. For chinese novel, King of Gods and Heavenly Jewel Change kind of using bow, but not really..

          • I know, but that’s like only 4 novels. 4 novels out of 100s. OSO is also driven by the genderbending, and so even though the bow is a major part, I sort of forgot about it. Basically, I just want more bows, even though I like swords. And sort of like a Ranger-type, not a side weapon for a crafter. I love Ossan, but somethign more battley would be nice too.( I don’t usually read Wuxia/Xiaxia, especially with harem tags)

          • Vermillion is a good one too. But I dropped it because of slow update. I’m waiting for at least 1 vol to be translated first.

          • Oh yeah, Vermillion was great. I’m just wishing it updated way more often, and so it couldn’t really be used as an example.

          • wow…I just woke up and saw a bunch of y’all comments XD Shocked me for a sec~ Well yeah, I am kinda bumped out about them using a gun to scratch it off as an OP equip, and judging from the further plot for level 1 guy, I suspect he’s gonna get a new weapon but I got a feeling it’s gonna be one of those military weapons or something, and also he learns some magic or stuff… The romance part was a little bit sad for me cause I was expecting yoda to do something about it, I even purposely read a few chapters ahead just to see any development but NOPE! Haiz, well I guess Emily’s route is going strong as one of the chapters title is “Thank you Emily”. So yeah… hopefully when I translate that far there are SOME development that excites me more..Anyways sorry for the long rant, Imma go do my assignments and all~ thanks for leaving some suggestions too :3 P.S: Never really read any manga/LN/WB that has the MC use bow.

          • If he gets a rocket launcher… I’m going to be mad. And that chapter title sounds like a goodbye, so I’m not really sure if it’s romantic progression. Just saying, Only Sense ONline is around 9 volumes long, so it’ll take a bit. VRMMO Ossan is shorter, and the manga is slightly ahead. Finally Vermillion sounds long, but since the translators are going rather slow, you should wait a bit. I’m not sure about the Chinese novels. And Tsuki ga Michibiku is also a long one, since the translator is a beast. As fast as you, even.

    • i was wondering the same, that gun doesn’t grow in power right?
      ….
      then again punching a rotting corpse is not really on my list of things i’d do if i could avoid it

  5. Thanks for the hard work!

    Guess we’ll be expecting thunder bullets next. ^_^ Just realized he didn’t have flame bullets yet….>_<, only freeze ones. Since he couldn't bring the zombies out of the dungeon up to now.

  6. Thank you soooooo much ^-^

    Stupid MC why are you destroying the Pandora Box?! It costed them 300M to develop this and you just blow it up >w<

    • Ikr XD but I mean they used up 300mill to develop it so not each box cost 300mill but the resources needed to make them XD and thanks for reading 🤗

  7. Thank you for the chapter. Weren’t the zombies suppose to be on the first floor of the dungeon or did I miss something.

      • You know this author is lazy? when zombies and skeletons are swapped, but it doesn’t even matter.

        • Oh well….they always have their flaws…this author does have a lot of other novel too… And I saw that one of his novel is quite famous too…

  8. The princess remind a certain game and npc
    The always/most give keyitem to player
    For gamenmake me remeber a game like need go here but need ship, to get talk to npc B then B said he need this or that, get item at dungeon but need key or 🙂 get new character(either free or another errand) orz

  9. Thanks for the chapter <3
    "our company has bet on a whopping 300 million Piro to develop this Pandora Box!" and then the same guy 4 lines later: Have five for free!!

    • MC also doesn’t tip the seeds out and automatically destroys the box. Like… Even if you had something you didn’t like/need you wouldn’t just let it explode, if it’s yours, right?

      • Well to be fair, even after that steep production cost, the fact that that guy just gave away 5 for free to a very unknown acquaintence, its not like you would think it is that hard to make and would be really cheap

        • It’s still a waste of something that seems expensive. If someone gave you a reusable starbucks mug, protein shaker, etc, you just wouldn’t throw it away after one use, right? 🙁

          • I guess but maybe the thing is that you can’t take them out unless you do it by hand, so since he can’t do that, he has to wait for them to blow up?

      • 300million in piro might be equal to the same amound in yen so in us dollar that be about 3 million that not much for production cost

    • marketing my friend,
      they used 300 million to create it , but the actual box price NEEDS to be accesible to people, or else they would never buy it.
      my guess is that this is not a luxury item.

Every comment helps~
