TLN Update: Hello readers again! I’m bringing good news for y’all~ Since I saw a comment mentioning they want the people’s name mentioned at the end of a speech, I wanna try something different.

I will do a test run on these few chapters and get feedback from everyone. First off, I will colour code the individual character names and also put their names in (brackets) to easily identify who they are. It’s on experiment stage for now so I really want to know whether I should continue or I should stick to normal.

Ryouta = Royal Blue

Emily = Sea Green

Celeste = Red-ish

Alice = Purple

Eve = Burnt Orange

That’ll be all~ Thank you and look forward for more updates to come~

Nihonium’s entrance, we arrived at the only Know-It-All board that was placed here.


[Then, Emily?] (Ryouta)

[Yes desu.] (Emily)


Emily nodded, and proceeded to operate the Know-It-All Board.

As soon as the status appeared, she was in admiration and did an [Ooh] expression.


Level 40/40
Strength A
Endurance A
Intelligence F
Mentality F
Speed E
Dexterity E
Luck B


[My level is finally maxed out nanodesu.] (Emily)

[Your ability….is quite straightforward, your HP and Strength was already at A, but even your Endurance went up to A. Your status are similar to that of an Infighter.] (Ryouta)

[Mogumogu….this is…..mogumogu….strong.] (Eve)


Eve was talking while chewing on a carrot.


[It is bad manners to speak while you have something on your mouth nanodesu.] (Emily)

[…….] (Eve)


Eve stopped talking.

After completely devouring the carrot on her mouth, she reached out for another one and ate it.


[You’re still eating! Aren’t you going to continue explaining!] (Ryouta)

[I will not forgive anyone who interferes with a date with carrots whether they are gods or not.] (Eve)

[Aren’t your words intensely wrong!? Well whatever, I do agree with you that she’d became stronger now. Strong and tough, if she had an ability to recovery then she would be able to manage herself.] (Ryouta)

[That’s not true desu.] (Emily)


Emily’s face was bright red.


[You’re being overly modest, Having your HP, Strength and Endurance reaching A is no small matter, it’s honestly amazing, right everyone.] (Ryouta)


When I ask for agreement with my teammates, they all nodded.

Emily became more and more embarrassed, as she was trying to hide it she operated the Know-It-All board.


Vegetation D
Animal E
Mineral F
Magic F
Special Item F


[Even your drops have slightly increased.] (Ryouta)

[Yes desu. Now it’s Celeste turn isn’t it nanodesu.] (Emily)

[Eeh.] (Celeste)


Celeste nodded, and stood in front of the Know-It-All board where Emily was previously standing, and efficiently operated it.


Level 54/54
Strength E
Endurance E
Intelligence A
Mentality A
Speed E
Dexterity A
Luck C


[Amazing desu! Your MP has finally reached A desu!] (Emily)

[With that you won’t be exhausted with Mana depletion. Previously it was at C right.] (Ryouta)

[You can also fire a lot of Level 3 magic now desu.] (Emily)


While me and Emily were in high tension, Celeste was silent.


[What’s wrong?] (Alice)


Alice strangely asked.

Celeste without answering, she placed her hands on her chest and repeatedly breathed in and out.


[EEII!!!] as she loudly shouted and continued operating the Know-It-All Board.

The status turned to page 2, and the Drop status was shown.


Vegetation F
Animal F
Mineral F
Magic E
Special Item F


[………..Ahh.] (Celeste)


For a moment she had a stupefied look, but holding onto that expression, tear drops suddenly flowed from her eyes.

Well Celeste was pretty conflicted with her drops having all F- Final F, and was rather complex.


Even though she reached her max level and that isn’t something to be proud at, but too her it was completely different.

As if holding her loved one, she was playing around the letter [E] on the Know-It-All board with her fingers.

Afterwards she turned and looked at me, and tears started flowing down nonstop.


[Thank you.] and an extremely happy smile was seen from her face.




Teruru’s eighth floor. Similar to the sixth and seventh floor, it had an outskirts kind of feel inside the dungeon. The only thing different was that the seventh floor had this phenomenon called the Dungeon Snow.

To commemorate Emily and Celeste for finally reaching their max level, we proceeded to head down to the next floor.


Just so you know, we dropped Eve at the second floor.

Along the way I was defeating some Drowsy Slime and collecting the Ryouta Carrots, and the bunny’s eyes turned into a shape of carrot and stayed there, thus we left her there.


Thus, Emily, Celeste, Alice and I finally arrived at the eighth floor.

And there awaited us was a Metallic coloured Slime.

It was finally Celeste’s turn to do her job in explaining.


[It’s a <Steel Slime>, as you can see it’s extremely hard.] (Celeste)

[I know. When I was taking the license test I had to fight one of these monsters.] (Ryouta)


What the test was is for people to continue venturing to the sixth floor and below, and those who could not pass it may not proceed, this was the policy made by the Shikuro’s association.


Without it, hunting monsters and getting their drops, you won’t be able to sell it in Shikuro, it is an essential item for adventurers who wants to go around and make earnings, which substantially limits the access of more goods.


So in order to get that license I had to undergo a test, and during the test I had to fight this Steel Slime.

Also when I said that I [knew of it], for a moment I could see Celeste slightly lost her energy to live.

……..Did she want to explain it, I guess I made a wrong move.


[So it’s just hard desu? Are there other special abilities desu?] (Emily)

[Not that I can remember, it’s just the pain in the ass kind of tough.] (Celeste)

[I understand desu. Yoda-san, leave this to me desu.] (Emily)

[Ah, okay.] (Ryouta)


As I nodded in approval, Emily carried her hammer and flew away.

Trying to get the preemptive strike, she spun her hammer on top of her head round and round, and before landing on the ground she used the momentum to her advantage and swung her hammer down.


It’s a one on one match against Emily and the Steel Slime. While we were standing as spectators and watch.


[Amazing, I can’t believe she’s competing with that Steel Slime with just physical attack.] (Celeste)

[Well it’s basic that she would do that after increasing her level.] (Ryouta)

[That’s true and all, but it would not normally work on a Steel Slime. It’s body has a weakness somewhere, and you would have to find it and aim at it.] (Celeste)

[Heeh. So the method of defeating was different compared to mine.] (Ryouta)

[How did Ryouta-san defeat it?] (Celeste)

[Together with Freeze and Flame bullet, I made the metal fatigue and crushed it the moment it cracked.] (Ryouta)

[Metal fatiguing?] (TLN: Here, Celeste used hiragana to say it as she doesn’t know the term ????)


Celeste then tilted her head to the side.

It seems like even the knowledgeable Celeste did not know what it means.


While we were chatting, it seems that the battle was about to settle.

Emily stopped her feet and hit the Steel Slime.

A Strength that could shake the dungeon continued. As she held her hammer high and flew, the Slime tried to jump, but it pounded further.

She lifted up her hamer, the Slime moved accordingly, and she strike with her hammer.


This went on for awhile.

It was like making mochi.


[Ne~Ne~, Isn’t Kon-kon’s body starting to crack.] (Alice)


Kon-kon, oh she meant the Steel Slime.

She just named it abruptly, is it going to be a buddy of hers like the ones on her shoulders?

As I was thinking about it, the Steel Slime was defeated.


[Yoda-san! I did it desu!] (Emily)


As if accomplishing a task, Emily returned with a smile on her face.

Even forgetting to pick up the dropped Melon on the ground, the girl’s face had a sense of accomplishment and a gracious smile, she came back to where we were.




In the middle of Shikuro’s city, I entered a splendid building which imitated a vegetable, and descended straight to the basement.


[It’s very wide desu.] (Emily)

[So this is where you can fight monsters.] (Celeste)

[Does Boney-chan and Jumpy-san want to join in and have fun too?] (Alice)


The moment we step foot at this place, my friends were watching the place with interest.

By the way, Eve also came along.

While we were on our way back on the second floor I defeated some more Drowsy Slimes and she said [Bunny, is happy that she could die] whilst rubbing a carrot on her cheeks.


I went straight to the counter, and talked to a man who was similar in age.


[I came here to get a license.] (Ryouta)

[……For 11th floor and below?] (Lazy “Examiner” Man)

[No, for 6th and below. My friends have not gotten theirs yet.] (Ryouta)

[….So for three?] (Lazy “Examiner” man)

[No, for two.] (Ryouta)


Without any expression, the man came out of the counter, and started preparing.

I then went back to where my friends were at.


[I’ve talked to him.] (Ryouta)

[Yes desu. But why though desu? If Yoda-san himself has the license then wouldn’t be no problem desu?] (Emily)

[Though that’s true, but I guess it would still be useful to have it just in case?] (Ryouta)


Thinking about it, I guess this is because I’m a modern person who intuitively thinks about driver’s license the moment I hear the word [license].

There isn’t any problem if everyone has a license, so long we have a license we all can drive a car, but we can deal with it when multiple people have it. This was what I came up with while comparing.


[It will come in handy.] (Celeste)

[What’s that suppose to mean?] (Ryouta)


I asked back, and Celeste’s eyes were brimming brightly.

It was different when she couldn’t explain about the Steel Slime, now it was a look of confidence.


[It’s to show how powerful our Family is. For example, how many people has Drop A stats, or how many of us has a license. This kind of things do happen. If you’re strong and have a license, it will be useful when the time comes.] (Celeste)

[Now that you mention, when I first heard of Neptune it was something along the lines of [There are 5 people who have Vegetation Drop of A].] (Ryouta)

[Precisely because of this. We all——] (Celeste)


Celeste then looked at the man who was preparing from quite a distance away.


[Because Ryouta-san has not announced this yet, so it’s better if we do this quickly.] (Celeste)


As Celeste finished explaining, the three of us nodded.


Afterwards the preparation was complete, and the man returned.


[…..Who’s gonna do it?] (Lazy “Examiner” Man)

[Emily……Eh?] (Ryouta)


Not too far from us, an item that was the perfect range to turn into a rogue monster was there.

It was a potato.


[Steel—-Wasn’t it Melons previously.] (Ryouta)

[….It’s random, with the exception of the seventh floor.] (Examiner)

[Why is the seventh floor an exception?] (Alice)


Alice then asked a rather normal but not really question.


[Normally, you can’t defeat the seventh floor’s monster with just a single person.] (Ryouta)

[If I use the Tear of Slime now, the difficulty will be too low, so it would be meaningless.] (Examiner)

[Is that so.] (Alice)

[…….In order to pass, you need to defeat it with 5 Child.] (Examiner)

[It’s quite difficult. What should we do?] (Ryouta)


I looked at both Emily and Celeste.

Potato, it’s a monster from Teruru’s sixth floor.


They are also called the Parent-Child Slime, there’s a special way in defeating it.


[I’ll do it.] (Celeste)

[Can you?] (Ryouta)


Celeste nodded, she has quite the confident in herself.


[I understand.] (Ryouta)

[Good luck nodesu!] (Emily)

[Ike~ Ike~ Go~ Go~] (Alice)


Celeste nodded, and went off.

While waiting at the perfect range, the potato soon hatched into a rogue monster.


[If it’s 5 of them I’m sre Celeste-san can do it nodes.] (Emily)

[That’s true, using her Bicorn Horn to first defeat the 5 bodies, then finishing it off with her Inferno.] (Ryouta)


Emily and I both nodded.

Because the both of us knew the capability of Celeste, we watched it in relieved.


Below Celeste feet, a magic circle appeared, and her long and beautiful hair fluttered around as she used her magic.


[Inferno!] (Celeste)


[ [Eeh?] ] (Ryouta & Emily)


Both Emily and my voice matched.

That was different compared to what we’d imagined, the first magic she used was Inferno.


Around 10 of the Child Slime was burned to crisped.


[Why did you use Inferno first?] (Ryouta)

[The Parent will be even stronger than usual desu.] (Emily)


There are two characteristics about the Parent-Child Slime.

Depending on how many child(hands and feet) you defeat, and defeat the parent(main body) the drop will increase.

And also if you defeat more child(hands and feet), the parent(main body) will get stronger.


Annihilating all the child, the strongest parent in theory was created.


Celeste wasn’t hesitant, and continued using her magic.

It was a different magic circle this time.


[This is……the power that Ryouta-san had nurtured for me, a new power.] (Celeste)


Celeste muttered, and continued holding out her hands.


[Rip it apart, <Silent Fury> !!!] (Celeste)


A laser like thing was narrowed further from the supple of her fingertip and continued shrinking as a light was launched.

And that hit the body of the Parent Slime.

The laser then went through the body and continued further.

The Slime—–that was deemed to be extremely powerful was sliced in half, and Pon, a sound was heard and it disappeared.


[She did it desu—–Aah.] (Emily)


Celeste was wobbling, and I went and hugged her.


[What’s happening.] (Celeste)

[You used too much magic, a new magic what’s more.] (Ryouta)


As I said this to Celeste, sweat was floating from her forehead, and her face changed into the color of a paper.


[For heaven’s sake…..You’re still the same even when I first met you.] (Ryouta)

[No, I’ve changed. And a drastic one at that.] (Celeste)


Celeste then looked straight at me in the eyes.

A gentle, yet intense and passionate eyes.


[Thank you, for everything that you’ve done for me.] (Celeste)


This was the first time it hit me right in the heart(kokoro) when I heard the word [Thanks].

It was the most thrilling thing.

Everyone’s fav Poll Time~

Thanks for the chapter!

Namae nashi desu~ · 18th September 2017 at 12:15 AM

Thanks for the chapter.

kha · 18th September 2017 at 12:16 AM

thank for the update

Jigoku Shounen · 18th September 2017 at 12:17 AM

Thanks for the chapter.
Man, I really want to see a pic of Celeste.

raitei · 18th September 2017 at 12:35 AM

Thanks for the chapter! Coloring speaking lines is a great idea!

You forgot one line to color tho:

” [It’s a , as you can see it’s extremely hard.] (Celeste) ”

It’s still using the normal color.

    Shiro · 18th September 2017 at 12:40 AM

    Ah darn~ I’ll do that right away~ Still very new to this so yeah >.<

    Thanks for reading too~~

Stephanie · 18th September 2017 at 12:37 AM

Thanks for the chapter, I like the colors and names. A few tonnes you missed coloring Celestes’ texts but it is much easier to follow. Thanks

Unknownsoul · 18th September 2017 at 12:38 AM

Will the color code be too much work for ya?

    Shiro · 18th September 2017 at 12:42 AM

    It’s not much of a bother~ but more of getting used to it as this will be my first time doing it, I hope it won’t get too eyesore-ing for people~ That’s why I was hesitant before, and that’s why I’m doing a trial run for now to see the reader’s(y’all) feedback.

    Short answer: It’s actually not that difficult. XD

    Thanks for reading :3

NANI!?!! · 18th September 2017 at 12:42 AM

color but just the name only

    Shiro · 18th September 2017 at 12:44 AM

    As in on the (brackets)? Yeah some people can’t handle it having different colours on text, as too bright would hurt staring and a really light colour would result in not being able to read the text, I was contemplating whether or not I should highlight the words instead, but unfortunately that would be much more work to be done.

GonZ555 · 18th September 2017 at 12:44 AM

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

    Shiro · 18th September 2017 at 12:44 AM

    Thanks for reading~
    Meatbun received!

Mydrakil · 18th September 2017 at 12:44 AM

I really dislike the new colored lines, but if you decide to do that in future, any chance you can post link to non colored chapter?

    Shiro · 18th September 2017 at 12:46 AM

    Ah~ that would actually be a great idea~ but still, I’m really afraid of adding the coloured lines, as I would know the reasons why you would dislike it, I’ve mentioned it on another comment from NANI!!?!!! and maybe I would just leave the (bracket names) and scrap the colour coding part.

    Anyways, thanks for reading~ been awhile since I was active in commenting again! Very very busy with university ><

crywolf641 · 18th September 2017 at 1:16 AM

Just color the names. So that no one would bloody complain. Or just put names. Either one is fine just dont color the text. Some people hate that.

Mikan · 18th September 2017 at 1:29 AM

ey ey ey you should first go doki doki for emily dammit

exoasis · 18th September 2017 at 1:45 AM

the color coding works… just not the actual line just the names, so i’m voting nay but what i mean is no line colors, other than that great job, Thanks for the chapter!

    Shiro · 18th September 2017 at 9:32 AM

    Thanks for the feedback and thanks for reading :3

unicornimpaler · 18th September 2017 at 1:46 AM

I’m a fan of the new dialogue change. Keep up the good work.

mpatriac · 18th September 2017 at 1:59 AM

Thanks for the chapter. I got an headache with that colored text. I think you can colored only the name or put another link to non colored text

    Shiro · 18th September 2017 at 9:35 AM

    Yeah maybe just the names~ but wouldn’t it defeat the whole purpose? Or is that fine?
    Anyways sorry if it gave you a headache, thanks for reading till the end tho :3

      mpatriac · 25th September 2017 at 12:17 AM

      No no no. It should be me who say thanks for the chapter

        Shiro · 25th September 2017 at 9:44 AM

        No I still would have to say sorry as it was a new idea to do this and it might hinder your reading. And it’s also because through your feedback I can find another way to sort this out.

        So i should actually say thank you 🙂

ryuukun17 · 18th September 2017 at 2:10 AM

Why does Celeste sound like she noticed that she got pregnant?


sfcipher · 18th September 2017 at 2:42 AM

Thanks for the treat.

    Shiro · 18th September 2017 at 9:35 AM

    Thanks for reading as always :3

Erwin · 18th September 2017 at 5:45 AM

Thanks for the chapter~

Mesmerised · 18th September 2017 at 7:11 AM

Thanks for the chapter!

Dark Jackel · 18th September 2017 at 10:48 AM

I actually like the colors better than name tags. But it seems I’m in the minority… ?

Alternatively, you could format them like standard English:

“For heaven’s sake…..You’re still the same even when I first met you,” Ryouta said.

“No, I’ve changed. And a drastic one at that,” Celeste replied.

…Now I want to edit Celeste’s line. Darn it. ?

    Shiro · 18th September 2017 at 11:01 AM

    Yeah that’s what the author usually does, just that he makes it a next sentence instead of ending it with “Ryouta said” or “Celeste said”. But that’s a great idea too…maybe I’ll try to change the format slightly to make that happen.
    Thanks for the feedback 🙂

      Dark Jackel · 18th September 2017 at 11:07 AM

      Said, asked, answered, replied, agreed, spoke, intoned, hissed, explained… The variations are endless. ?

        Shiro · 18th September 2017 at 11:22 AM

        Welp, time to bring out my inner storytelling skills to the test then 😉

        Thanks for all these suggestions, it made me realised that doing that is so much better now XD

~Traveling Chef~ · 18th September 2017 at 11:19 AM


    Shiro · 18th September 2017 at 11:22 AM

    Welcome 😉

CCaprice · 18th September 2017 at 6:37 PM

Thanks for the chapter.

Love the new colour scheme.

Noob Human · 18th September 2017 at 10:12 PM

Thanks its definitely better for me and
Thank for all of yours good work

animemanganovelfiction · 19th September 2017 at 2:35 PM

interesting idea using colour 😀 i hope in the future there will be someone that will have Rainbow Colour, if possible a girl with Tsundere type like Shana from From Shakugan No Shana

ahahaha 😀

thx for the chapter ^^

    Shiro · 19th September 2017 at 5:34 PM

    Haha that would be interesting~ Such creative idea you have there as always XD

    Thanks for reading >W<

Twenty-Fifth Bam · 12th November 2017 at 8:18 AM

I think the color coding is enough desu~
Maybe putting names is overkill already?
Just my idea though~
Thank you for this chapter :*

    Shiro · 12th November 2017 at 2:11 PM

    Thanks for reading ~ I see that you’ve been diligently reading this LN and I’m grateful for it 🙂 yeah the color coding and name is a bit Overkill but sometimes readers don’t know who is who when they are talking, I as the translator can identify as they have their own way of speaking but when trying to convert it into English, it’s a bit weird cause everyone speaks sort of the same way besides having different accent or slang. Thus I decided to put the names at the end of a conversation to better enhance your reading experiences. The colour coding was just one of my brothers idea of doing so, so I decided why not? XD

    Anyways sorry for the ranting, thanks for reading again and I hope you’ll continue to enjoy it 🙂

MrTrixer · 16th March 2018 at 9:03 PM

Keep the names if you fell that its needed but please dont use color codes, i personally dont think it looks good and what would you do if future characters were to be added, soon enough youre gonna run out of colors and people will mix them left and right.
It’s a fun idea, but according to my experience its a bad idea in the long run.

Thank you for the chapter and the treat. (^_^)/

Inui · 20th April 2019 at 11:10 AM

This might not be applied here but, you need to use some to make the difference between talk and thought like using [] for talk and {} or () for thought or so, colors are good but with a lot of character this may trouble you and the readers with chosen colors also its a little redundant using both color and naming at end, well this is just a bit more of work for you

gumtreeblossom · 9th May 2019 at 9:21 PM

Well, I’m about to pass out if I keep reading… I think I might have done enough chapters for today.
Thanks for all the chapters.

Chris · 3rd April 2022 at 5:52 PM

So…why cant he use his drop transfer skill in nihonium to get everyone to up their attributes?
