On the next day, I went out to Selen’s first floor early in the morning.

Using the Homing Bullets, I’m earning double the income.

By guiding the Slimes who were flying towards me on top of the Magic Cart, I then shoot them using the Homing Bullet, and let the double drop smoothly fall into the cart.

Even though I have a Homing Bullet, it’s funny that I still have to guide them before shooting them.

Before you know it, I’ve already collected a full load of soybeans, and thus head out of the dungeon and sell them off.

A full load of soybeans in the magic cart is around one thousand pounds——since I weigh around 70 pounds, I’m guessing it’s roughly around 1 ton.

After selling it I earned a total of 80k Piro—quite a sum if I do say so myself.

Using the Magic cart’s calculation function, I earned a total of 200k Piro before noon.








After going through my third round of selling off the drops, somehow I bumped into Celeste while I was hanging around at the dungeon.

Even with the crazy amount of people crowded in the middle of it, she still stood out. A girl with a long and luscious hair and a height capable of being a model, while putting her hands up high and stretching her spine… Truly is——in a good way, a remarkable sight to see, which attracted people’s attention.

[What are you doing?]

[Shopping for some daily necessities.]

[I see.]

Nodding, I looked around.

[There’s quite a number of shops around. They range from liveware to luxury goods, and they’re also selling jewelry-wait, why jewelry?]

[Jewelry does sell well in these kinds of places.]

[How so?]

[The adventurers that came to earn some cash, their pockets should be warm.]

[Aah, it’s warm alright.]

Cause I’m also one of them.

With yesterday’s 500k Piro and today’s 200k Piro, I’ve already earned a total of 700k Piro quickly.

[What’s more they would wanna get some souvenirs before going back. In that case, things like accessory or jewelry will sell well as the ladies would wanna get them.]

[It also appeals to the guys.]

I, who understood this became sort of sad.

Even though we have earn a sum of money, but we spend to appeal to the girls using gifts.

I looked at the stores that are displaying a variety of accessories.

My beloved gun, I felt like it’s presence instilled something on me.

Now that I think about it, during the time when I got hold of my second gun, I promised Emily that I would give something to her as thanks, and was procrastinating for a really long time.







It’s not about the appearance, but because of gratitude.

And because of that gratitude, I wasted all my wealth.

[No, think of it as a cheap way of getting out of it.]

While convincing myself, I came to believe that it was indeed normal.

Together with the income I’ve earned in two days, plus the savings that I have from Shikuro.

A ring that is worth a million Piro, is currently wrap in a box and is inside my pocket. (TLN: I thought he gave her a ring already, that X2 ring)

Just by glancing at it, I thought to myself that this ring would definitely suit Emily.

Even though I just spent a million for it, because I want her to feel appreciated, I promptly decided to purchase it.

Right now, I’m holding onto it and head back to the tent where Emily is.

Naturally my footsteps quicken, and I was getting extremely nervous that my heart was pounding.

Without paying attention to my surroundings, I unintentionally stumbled, and was about to drop the ring in the box.

While in midair I hurriedly caught hold of it, and breathe a sigh of relief.


As I was about to drop the box, smack, an idea struck on me.

The sensation is as if a white thunder fell onto me, and that sensation inspired me.

What was that? What was I thinking just now?

While contemplating, I can’t remember.

Although I had an idea but it immediately slipped past me and I’ve forgotten about it, but the feeling is still stuck to my head.

But I really want to remember it.

In such case, I will repeat back my actions.

Since repeating my actions, might make me remember back.

I went back to my previous spot, and again remembering how I walked, and then accidentally stumbled and lose the grip of the box.

Then hurriedly catch it—-oh I remembered.

Just went I caught hold of the ring——it slipped out of my hands.

This ring, is also a dungeon drop.

According to the laws of this world, what that means is that If I were to lose it, it will turn into a rogue monster.

Plus this is outside the dungeon, and rogue monsters don’t usually drop any items.

But, if I were to defeat it I will definitely get a drop, what’s more it’s not an ordinary drop at that.

[……1 Million Piro.]

I really wanna know what the rogue monster of this ring drops.

Being curious, but also wanna return the gratitude towards Emily.

I’m troubled.






Not far from Selen dungeon, a secluded area.

I left the box with the ring in it on the ground, and took a distance.

[I’m sorry Emily.]

In the end, curiosity got the best outta me, and I’m now turning the ring into a rogue monster.

For Emily tomorrow—no the day after tomorrow.

I’ll do my best in earning, and convince myself that I will go and get the same ring again after earning the money.

Afterwards, I waited.

While having the gun in both hands, I stared at the box.

After what feels like an eternity, the box cracked, and a monster appeared from within.

The shape of the monster resembles that of a human, but it’s clearly not a human.

It’s several times more macho than an average human, and the hair and skin are burning in a bright red colour.

Ifrit, that name naturally came out of my mind.

While holding onto my dual guns, I loaded the Freezing Bullets, and fired.

The bullets then froze the flames, causing a cold steam to be released into the air.

Though, that was only for a moment.

The fire spirit ate my bullets and was frozen for just a moment, and the ice immediately melted off.

It then shot a burst of flame towards me, so I dodged and fired another round.

Although I was about to fire and fuse both the bullets while aiming at it, I had to dodge it’s attack while firing and the fusion failed and normally shot it.

Both the Freezing Bullet hit the target, and this time the range of the ice has gotten larger.

Then it was being melted, and melted, though this time it took longer than usual.

Though it’s probably just my imagination, but the spot that I fired, the colour of the flame has seemingly turned darker.

[Looks like it’s working.]

With that in mind, I immediately fired all the rounds of the Freezing Bullet.

Then, the fire spirit, was hit by the Freeze Bullet one after the another.






The spirit was defeated, and an item has dropped.

[Isn’t this the same ring just now…..?]

The ring that was on the ground, when I appraised it, it’s exactly the same ring that I bought just now.

Even though it’s outside the dungeon, something like this can happen too.

To be honest, I was expecting that if I were to defeat a 1 million piro worth ring, I would get a weapon stronger than my guns right now.

Of course I executed it, but this was the result.

Guess it can’t be helped, let’s just put it off as I can get back the ring without buying it again.

Since it’s originally a present for Emily, I then pick it up.

The moment I pick it up with my hands——

——All drop rate is now +1

A voice was heard.

It’s the same voice as when I pick up the seeds.

Is this the same as that? Wait, this is strangely different.

When I pick up the seeds, it will immediately disappear from the palm of my hands, but the ring did not do so.


I purposely drop the ring, and once again pick it up.

——All drop rate is now +1

Again, the voice was heard.

I feel like I understand what’s going on.

If it doesn’t disappear, then this must be an equipment.

And if you equip this onto yourself, the effect would be something like a status up effect.






I brought Emily near the entrance of the dungeon where the Know-It-All board is displayed.

[Is there a reason why we are here desu?]

[Please wear this.]

[This is——Fueeeeee!?]

Emily toppled when she looked at the ring.

[Th, th-th-th-this is!?]

[This is my gratitude for you, please accept it.]

[Bu, but…..]

I looked at Emily who was lost in words.

Emily who was staring straight at me looks like she had a hundred expression on her face.

She was surprised, and then was worried, then right after her face was bright red.

In the end she nodded and timidly come closer, and received the ring.


As soon as she received it, she looked at the Know-It-All board.

[You heard it too?]

[Yes desu.]

[Let’s test it out.]

Emily who nodded again, then skillfully operated the Know-It-All board as if she’s used too it.

Skipping the first page, she went to the second page.


Vegetation D (+1)
Animal E (+1)
Mineral E (+1)
Magic E (+1)
Special Item E (+1)



Displayed in front of us, was a status that we have not come across before.

As I suspected, it’s one of those equipment.

[I’m glad.]

[Yes desu, though this is the first time seeing such display, but that comes to show that it’s Yoda-san’s strength desu.]

Emily, who has been with me for really long time has gotten the answer right away, but that doesn’t matter right now.

I repositioned myself, and looked at her, and said.

[Thank you for everything once again, can you please receive this?]


After a short period of silence, Emily looked extremely happy, and shyly nods.

[Thank you very much.]

And, she grasped the ring with both hands and embraced it ever so gently.

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.


Wave your arms around like a kawai twat


Unknownsoul · 5th June 2017 at 12:08 AM

Since it is a ring and drop rate is everything, that’s the best “proposal ” ring ever if he ask for her hand

minedoge · 5th June 2017 at 12:11 AM

Awwww…….. finally a ring..soooo…. the receptionist next ? :3
Thanks for the work~.

Rasta · 5th June 2017 at 12:11 AM

Thank you for the chapter! Of course, it does something. And if he did that drop more and more, would it stack up? probably not, but still. Also, convenient ideas are convenient. But it sort of lost the feelings with the stat boost for me. It felt like a heartfelt gift at first, butt hen he decided to use it for something else… And since it conveniently dropped a ring, he gave it to Emily, because there would be no point of using it for himself. Sor tof makes me sad.

    nigard · 28th August 2017 at 7:46 PM

    The sound say it (all drop rate + 1) and seed say he get 0. That mean it has effect or whatever.

iamviruz · 5th June 2017 at 12:20 AM

Basically they are a couple already~~ Just never formally so. Welp, like Daya’s song, Words,
“We don’t have to say love ’cause the words only get in the way”


FinzRaizer · 5th June 2017 at 12:21 AM

and he still doesn’t realize he proposing her without knowing ~
Thanks for chap ~

wwlnl123 · 5th June 2017 at 12:27 AM

I thought he’ll get new power and able to get 2x the amount of the drop after defeating the rogue monster

xtremeloldude · 5th June 2017 at 12:31 AM

if he were to give that ring to someone with A rank droprate, would it become S?

thanks for the chapter

    lygarx · 5th June 2017 at 1:14 AM

    possibly. +1 made every rank go one rank higher regardless of previous rank with S as an obvious cap. normal stats have only raised proficiency until it became the next rank.

    DCLXVI · 5th June 2017 at 1:24 AM

    Don’t think so, I believe that the ring just gives you an extra drop, like if you hit the sweet spot on the monsters in this dungeon, or something like that I guess.

_Nobody:(_ · 5th June 2017 at 1:17 AM

………wouldn’t it be better if he tried it and check his status? It could bring his drops to SS.

    kurotian · 5th June 2017 at 1:46 AM

    His final stat if its S will always be S. Dont want to give more details because its going to be a spoiler. Youll find out more about the other benenits of having S stat during this arc.

      _Nobody:(_ · 5th June 2017 at 1:53 AM

      Sorry,cause in some novels I know,there’s S,SS,SSS, and lastly X ranks,guess here’s only S

        kurotian · 5th June 2017 at 12:16 PM

        Youll find out next chapter why its permanent S once his stat is S. He will have to fight a *spoiler* that effects *spoiler*

    Anon · 16th August 2020 at 12:44 AM

    What I’m more mad about is that he doesn’t equip the x2 ring himself to finish nihonium twice as fast. Real talk mc is a complete and utter idiot

DCLXVI · 5th June 2017 at 1:24 AM

Thanks for the chapter!

Mion · 5th June 2017 at 1:54 AM

Thanks for the chapter!

Sir Bothersome · 5th June 2017 at 1:58 AM

The gif reminded me of Rino from “Tanaka-kun is always listless”

IDontKnowWhoAmI · 5th June 2017 at 2:40 AM

Hmmm….. why didnt he try to make those Drops from rogue monster to become another rogue monster?

And plz stop wasting homing bullet…

natsukage · 5th June 2017 at 4:03 AM

A new chapter!?


    natsukage · 5th June 2017 at 4:11 AM

    I wish Emily would act like this instead of just nodding. >////< If he doesn't make Emily-tan happy… (?°?°??? |

    Shiro · 5th June 2017 at 7:49 AM

sfcipher · 5th June 2017 at 8:22 AM

morisa00 · 5th June 2017 at 8:28 AM

Gosh, so sweet don’t put it in the rain, it will melt!
And Thank you Shiro-Kun 😀

    morisa00 · 5th June 2017 at 8:38 AM

    @Shiro it’s so weird o.O on my side its like 2:30 AM (I know it’s not on your side) and no normal person would still be on (guess I’m weird now?) and here you are pushing the Like button like 3 secs after I post it.

      Shiro · 5th June 2017 at 8:43 AM

      Well cause my time zone right now is 8:40~~ just about time for me to head for exam XD well thanks for reading morisa-sama <3

Shin_Itsuka · 5th June 2017 at 10:05 AM

So basically, the first ring (2x drop) is the engagement ring, while the second ring (drop +1) is the wedding ring?
That’s pretty romantic if i have to saygood job there ryouta!!! d(>.<)b

    kurotian · 5th June 2017 at 12:20 PM

    Plot twist new harem member added. Mc is dense but emily approves. Since she has two rings she shares the other.

philippespalla · 5th June 2017 at 11:23 PM

thanks for the chapter XD
cute Emily XD

anonon · 6th June 2017 at 1:12 PM

So, if he used the ring and hunted another one he could make an +2 ring? I know it’s not pratical since the ring cost a milllion but… well he can boost Emily a lot if you think about the possibilities, or he could get 2 rings if he borrow the other ring with double drop.

GonZ555 · 9th June 2017 at 5:11 AM

Meatbun Delivery~
Thank you for the chapter ( ?w?)

The last ring was 2x drop precentage, this time it’s drop quality? Or is it quantity?

Rul Yin · 18th June 2017 at 10:29 AM

if he equip that will it be SS

Gantono · 11th July 2017 at 7:29 AM

their world is really simple and just make some feel nuts cause it world logic, like u know, watamote that funny but hard to accept too
Thanks for chap

FuriousGeorge · 26th July 2017 at 11:53 AM

There’s an error in there somewhere. There’s no way he could weigh only 70 pounds. What is he? A midget salaryman?

    Draejin · 22nd August 2017 at 10:38 AM

    Glad to see someone else made mention of this. 70 pounds is definitely way too light unless he himself is short which based on the previous chapters, he is not. For a standard full-grown man, we’re looking at a weight of 120+ pounds, depending on height and build; 70 pounds makes him unhealthily underweight.

      Shiro · 22nd August 2017 at 8:10 PM

      I think it should be kg, and not meant to be pounds…I have to double check that again, and thanks for pointing that out :3 then again 70kg is also slightly unhealthy…

        Luciel Deviant Saint · 24th September 2017 at 6:08 PM

        You kidding me, in the past I weighed 60kg with a stature of 171cm and the doctor say I was a bit fat…. fuck you doctor.

        Terror100 · 24th March 2019 at 9:27 PM

        Maybe in Japan 70 kg is a little unhealthy but in my country where every one is 175+ and male are 185+ 80 kg is normal

animemanganovelfiction · 5th August 2017 at 9:07 PM

OH!!! interesting!!! now i finally get it more what it’s mean “he had a unique skill that can create cheat-like item that shouldn’t exist in the world from a monster” now he can try to kill the rogue monster from all equipment and armed himself with all the best effect equipment ahahahaha 😀

thx for the chapter ^^

bellcross13 · 7th August 2017 at 8:53 PM

I know that i have been rumbling on for the past chapters now. But….. Why did Emily get another ring that have something about the drop? Does Ryouta even realize that he could yield better results if he use the 2x drop ring? Can’t he borrow it while hunting atleast? Ugh….. My brain cells is dying here.

SadNdil (@SadNdil) · 8th November 2017 at 4:53 AM

And I pronounce you husband and wife.
Sweet moments with Emily, and I could just hear her “fue ?!” sound every time in my head hahaha, thanks for the chapter, Shiro-kun !

habib1100 · 14th November 2017 at 5:24 PM

Thanks for doing this chapter!?

saphsaph · 24th December 2017 at 6:09 AM


what is wrong with him?!? He literally has a broken skill… he can use those rings to buy her a mansion!!!

It doesn’t even make sense. X2 ring: get double drop, make +1 rings, make 2 ifrits, get 4 +1 rings…

He can basically double anything he does with this cheat. Why is he such an idiot??

    Alexis050694 · 29th January 2018 at 1:33 AM

    at this point, it is not the idiot Ryouta, but the author. Since he forgot the ring X2 at this point and that Emily is very kind and would have remembered to use his ring X2 to get more bullets. I could also use it as you mentioned. PD google translator

      Red Plays · 22nd May 2018 at 2:51 PM

      Well I think from the past chapter the x2 Ring slipped of of ryoutas finger when he tried to equip it that’s why he can’t use drop rate + or x rings (also what a waste of piro the x2 Ring was totally better than the +1all drop rate ring and that the guns that he got are way more better)

      Also idiot Ryouta why didn’t he just sold the ring so he can get a better ring right?

        Terror100 · 24th March 2019 at 9:24 PM

        But maybe the +1 ring will give home a SS skill in gathering

frozenink00 · 27th January 2018 at 3:21 PM

at first i was pissed but it ended ok so i forgive it

DarkoNeko · 4th April 2018 at 2:29 AM

put it on her finger ! put it on her fingeeeeer

Nightingal · 5th June 2018 at 5:49 AM

Both MC and author are stupid.

Does so much shit to get one bullet and one powerup seeds when there are rings to double and +1 drops on the same team.

And obviously, you can go for round two and get another ring and another and another. Apparently, you are not restricted to wearing one ring so why the fuck aren’t you farming rings?


Sambody · 17th June 2018 at 2:55 AM

Kill the author. I will kill him for his stupidity.

Dave · 26th June 2018 at 10:48 AM

Super stupid mc shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Digi Akuma · 13th August 2018 at 9:30 AM

Wtf, stupid author. Imma go drop this novel

Random Dude · 22nd October 2018 at 2:51 PM

It was so freaking hard to overlook this shit where the MC gives her a 2x Drop rate ring instead of using it to get shit tons of money and buy her something nice but instead gives her with F drop rate a 2x ring that would inable him to get powerfull twice as fast from seeds he now gives her +1 so she will get 4:1 ratio of items…. I mean WTF.

Mr SpinelesS · 21st February 2019 at 2:53 PM

Thanks for the chapter 🙂
So has the Author forgotten about the 2x ring like he switched the Zombies on the first floor with Skeletons?

    gumtreeblossom · 20th March 2019 at 1:49 PM

    Seems that way. Author also forgot that the main character was speculating about SS and SSS rating stats. With both of those on, you’d think the MC would be able to earn enough to buy Emily a house (not just rent one) and more than a few extra rings, too. Oh well…

anon · 11th May 2019 at 8:43 PM

okay I’ll just pretend that the x2 ring didn’t happen.
