Nihonium’s fifth floor, after defeating the last Red Skeleton, I picked up the seed.

The seed that was on the palm of my hand melted like a snowflake and disappeared.


[With this….It’s finally S.] (Ryouta)


I’ve already felt it previously that I was close to maxing the status out, so this morning while counting the amount of monsters I defeated, my status has finally reached to S.


After killing the newly emerged Red Skeleton, I went back to where I came.

After walking to the entrance, I stood in front of the K-I-A board.


There were no K-I-A board inside Nihonium, probably because it drops nothing hence everyone thinks it’s a shitty dungeon.

At least at the bare minimum, they placed a K-I-A board right in front of the dungeon which I was standing and operating it right this instance.


Level 1/1
Strength S
Endurance F
Intelligence S
Mentality F
Speed S
Dexterity F
Luck F



The Red Skeletons at the fifth floor drops MP seeds which finally upped my MP to S.


This was now my 5th S. Initially all of them were F, but I finally have five of them becoming S.

It seemed like a long journey, but not really either.

I had other abilities up and gathering normal items and cheat items to help, which both had its easiness and difficulties.


… … It was done, but.


[I can’t seem to see the benefits of having MP.] (Ryouta)


Wait that was a misunderstanding, what I was trying to say was I felt that having my MP maxing out did not give me any benefit.


I could feel the benefits of HP and Endurance even at an early stage, the overall damage being taken had drastically decreased and I could feel confident from being attacked by an ordinary monster as I would not die immediately.


I’ve also realised the benefits of Strength and Speed as I could fight without using a gun.


On the other hand, I don’t see a thing for MP.


The magic that I remembered having were two, Wind Cutter and Reservation.

Wind Cutter is a Level 1 wind magic, the very basic of the elementary magic.

On the other hand, Reservation is a magic that applies my drop S stats to any monster and anyone who defeats that monster would get an S drop drop.


For the former it was weak in general, and the latter is used only when facing strong enemies.

For different reasons, my magic had not much use.

Well, if I use Reservation, the effect is good.


In any case, I have used almost no magic and thus maxing MP to S had no benefits whatsoever.


[Should I buy…..another Magic Fruit.] (Ryouta)




In the city of Shikuro, inside a Magical Tool Store.

I stared at the three Magic Fruits.


[I don’t know whether I have to remind you about such things.]


Isaac, the store owner said so while bitterly smiling..


[No matter how many times you look at it it’s useless. I understand your feelings of eating a Magic Fruit and learning a magic, but you won’t know what magic you get.] (Isaac)

[…..It might be.] (Ryouta)


I was still gazing at the fruits to see whether there were any difference to it.


Buying one isn’t cheap either. If you managed to buy one and eat, you can learn one magic for just only 3 Million Piros, and it’s not as if I’m not gonna buy it, it’s just that I wasn’t in a hurry in buying it.


What’s more, even if I know I was buying it, I’m contemplating on which one I should buy as one costs a whopping 3 Million Piro.


[Well, I guess it’s fine to concentrate as long as you want until you decide to buy it.] (Isaac)


Isaac turned his palm upward and shrugged his shoulders.

Perhaps there were other customers like me, thus he had gotten used to it.


[……Muuuu.] (Ryouta)


I gazed at the Magic Fruit so much that a hole has opened from it.


I looked from the front then behind.

I looked at the side and look from top to bottom.


I gazed at it from all angles.


[——!] (Ryouta)


Suddenly, at that instant when I gazed at the three fruits from all angles, I could see something behind the leftmost magical fruit.


I unintentionally squint my eyes.


[What’s the matter?] (Isaac)

[That……] (Ryouta)

[That?] (Isaac)


Isaac stared at the Magic Fruit that I was looking.


[What’s wrong with this Magic Fruit?] (Isaac)

[………..] (Ryouta)


I wanted to say [Can’t you see it?], but I decided to swallow my words.

Perhaps he really can’t see it, and only I could see it.


A woman was standing behind the leftmost magical fruit.

Her body was translucent, and it had a shape of a human which was only slightly larger than the Magic Fruit.

It was like a ghost…….A woman in sleeves.


[…………Give me this.] (Ryouta)

[Please come again—-] (Isaac)


Restraining from wanting to say it out loud, I brought the Magic Fruit with a woman wearing a kimono dress happily smiling.




The suburbs of Shikuro, a place where rarely anyone comes.

I came to the place where I always use to hatch rogue monsters and placed the Magic Fruit on the ground.


After leaving the store, the figure of the woman in kimono disappeared.

Just a while ago, I was having various thoughts on the Kimono Lady, but now it was different.

Aurum of Aurum, a spirit of the dungeon, might have some association with it.

Nihonium, a woman in kimono.


[……Wouldn’t that just be too easy?] (Ryouta)


With that in mind, I left the Magic Fruit and waited for it to hatch.


Even if you eat the Magic Fruit normally, you would only gain one magic, but if you hatched it into a rogue monster and drop it again with my S Drop, it would give you the effects of the Magic Fruit twice.


While waiting for it, it made me feel like a chef cooking in a fine dining.


After a while the Magic Fruit hatched into a rogue monster..

It was a Liquid Metal monster similar to before, and right after it hatched it changed into the same figure as me.

The monster with an ability that retains 80% of the ability of whoever they transform to.


[She’s there again.] (Ryouta)


A woman in kimono appeared on his shoulder for only an instant.

It was similar to Alice’s monsters standing on her shoulder.


After smiling a little, she disappeared, and the monster started attacking.

Just like before, I fired a Restraint Bullet with the max amount of Bullet Enhancer, and defeated it by repeatedly firing the Infinite Lightning Bullets in succession.


It was good to have the Infinite Lightning Bullet, or else it would take a ton of bullets to defeat this guy.


It’s not just this monster, but it was the same with Rare monsters or Dungeon Masters.

It’s not that I can’t defeat it, but it’s troublesome and there are monsters that would not turn around for anything.

In order to fight such monsters, I thought that I wanted to be a bit stronger.


While thinking about it, the rogue monster collapsed and dropped Magic Fruit.


The Magic Fruit which originally had one hexagonal star now became two hexagonal stars.


I ate it and at that moment, two Magic emerged from within my head.


The first one was Magic Force. It is a spell that consumes MP each time you attack but in return your Physical Damage increases.


The other one was——



[Uwaa!!] (Ryouta)


My name was suddenly called out and I was surprised till I jolted up.

The one in front of me was Rat, one of the ninja knights who was always around Margaret.


[Wh, what is it?] (Ryouta)

[Please lend me your power.] (Rat)

[My power……? Wait, are you injured?] (Ryouta)


I was surprised to hear his request, but looking at him closely I could see he was quite shabby.

His armor had been torn from various places and the torn place was bleeding out his blood.


[What exactly happened?] (Ryouta)

[Margaret-sama is in danger.] (Rat)

[What?(NANI!)] (Ryouta)




Nihonium dungeon, the first floor.




As soon as I entered, the old man who was selling the air called out for my name.


[Where’s Margaret?] (Ryouta)

[Over there!]


As soon as he said that, I looked at the direction he was pointing, and saw Margaret and the three knights protecting her.

And the figure of the monster as well.


A 160cm tall monster with long hair.

The translucent body made it look like a ghost.


It was a Dungeon Master of Nihonium.


[So you’ve encountered it.] (Ryouta)

[I can’t believe it appeared….Satou, please do something about it.] (Rat)

[I’m on to it.] (Ryouta)


I moved forward one step.

Beside me was Rat, and he called for me.


[I’ll do anything, just say the word.] (Rat)


I caught a glimpse of him.

Even though the armo was hiding it, but I could tell that the wound wasn’t light. The wound was dripping out blood nonstop.

Still he had no fear in his eyes.

His face only showed a [If it’s for Margaret].


Admiring….no, it’s more of a respect to him.


[It’s fine, I can handle it by myself.] (Ryouta)

[……Can you do it?] (Rat)

[Yeah.] (Ryouta)


I nodded, and after feeling something, Rat left it to me without saying anything.


After running towards it, I saw her appearance.


It wasn’t Margaret, nor was it the Dungeon Master.

But it was that woman in sleeves.


She then smiled at me sweetly, and with that I confirmed.


[I have another 4 more floors to go, so please wait for me.] (Ryouta)


After saying that, she smiled with satisfaction and disappeared.


I then chant a spell.


[Repetition.] (Ryouta)


The moment I casted it, my body suffered a tremendous burdened, my magic—–MP felt like it had been sucked up dry.


It should be like that, as my opponent was the Dungeon Master.


Repetition, a magic that instantly kills a monster that you’ve defeated before in exchange for MP.


The Nihonium Dungeon Master was burned to crisp, as I defeated it in one hit in exchange for my S rank MP.

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


Huh??? · 28th December 2017 at 12:14 AM

Why is the MP status still F while the chapter clearly says S?

    Shiro · 28th December 2017 at 12:23 AM

    My bad my bad, whenever I create that table, I’ll use a template and sometimes I would forget to change the values >W< Thanks for reminding me everyone~

      Huh??? · 28th December 2017 at 12:44 AM

      The S statuses: HP, MP, Strength, Speed,…Intelligence? Wasn’t it supposed to be Endurance?

      Chris · 3rd April 2022 at 10:58 PM

      Shiro-san, it should be Endurance that’s S,
      not intelligence
      or he would be much less dense

Sirved · 28th December 2017 at 12:15 AM

I little bit confuse about KIA board, it says (ryota) Intelegent status (S), after that the next sentence “The Red Skeletons at the fifth floor drops MP seeds which finally upped my MP to S.”

    Sirved · 28th December 2017 at 12:17 AM

    I forgot one more thing, “This was now my 5th S. Initially all of them were F, but I finally have five of them becoming S.”
    But in KIA only 4 (S), i think it was Endurance that was missed

Yoshi · 28th December 2017 at 12:16 AM

Just wanna point out that he has a spell that would “give S rank drops to anyone he casts it on” and he does not, and most likely will not have his family members farm the drops that increase stats.

DarkWolf907 · 28th December 2017 at 12:30 AM

Thanks for the chapter

Dark Jackel · 28th December 2017 at 1:40 AM

New theory: this story is all Ryouta’s dream. Way
too convenient to be a reality. ?

redmonsterr9 · 28th December 2017 at 2:40 AM

well wouldnt it be better if he just binge cleaerd it? i mean at the start he was fighting non-stop for 3 days..if he did that in a week prob he’d be all S and when he defeats the kimono girl he’ll unlock SS

sweed · 28th December 2017 at 3:10 AM

[NANI!] (Ryouta)
[Hachi roku da, hachi roku!] (spectator)
Thanks : )
At Ryouta’s current speed we would need 88 chapters more before all his stats are S, thank you Kimono Lady for remind him to hurry up!

sfcipher · 28th December 2017 at 3:10 AM

Thanks for the treat.

    sfcipher · 28th December 2017 at 4:48 AM

    Even though the armo was hiding it, -> Even though the armor was hiding it,

Mikan · 28th December 2017 at 5:27 AM

what do we want? Emily!!!
when do we want her? now!!!

bring Emily or suffer the consequences author!!!! (not really, really)

GonZ555 · 28th December 2017 at 5:36 AM

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

Nihonium: “move it already! I want to go on a date too! It’s not fair only goldie-chan gets to play!”

Senght · 28th December 2017 at 6:55 AM

Since when did Intelligence S ?

ryuukun17 · 28th December 2017 at 7:01 AM

On the other hand, Reservation is a magic that applies my drop S stats to any monster and anyone who defeats that monster would get an S drop drop.

S drop drop?
Try S-rank drop

Dreamer · 28th December 2017 at 8:36 AM

Started reading this novel last night up to this chapter. There’s something I’m wondering, with the dungeons (along with their respective goddesses) named after the elements, isn’t Teruru supposed to be Telurium ? Will you ever change it ?

Shield Loyalist · 28th December 2017 at 9:38 AM

Only Ryouta can use the stat-increasing seeds because the seeds become intangible for the rest.

Nihonium might do something about it though. She seemed too pleased of Ryouta.

JayVlad Dark Heart · 29th December 2017 at 1:15 AM

Yes it is the Endurance that is S not the Int.
Thank you for this chapter! 🙂

habib1100 · 13th January 2018 at 3:55 AM

Thanks for doing this chapter!?

MrTrixer · 18th March 2018 at 4:39 AM

“Well, if I use Reservation, the effect is good.” If, IF is the magic word, he even explained how it works INSIDE OF NIHONIUM DUNGEON!!
Goddess, i want my power that ive asked from you a few chapters back, make it a painful skill against MC’s please..

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

DarkoNeko · 5th April 2018 at 9:24 AM

Wonder if letting the 2 hexagons magic fruit turn into a rogue monster again would turn it into a 3, no 4 hexagon fruits once defeated ? But the rogue monster probably would be very scary.

Holy dang, Repetition.

    Schadows · 9th May 2019 at 7:23 AM

    That’s what I’m wondering from the beginning.
    What happen to the drop off a rogue monster (even the bullets), if he would let it respawn and defeat it again

akaDEA · 2nd March 2019 at 9:44 PM

It’s getting frustrating, the level of stupidness of the MC/author. If using Reservation makes the one that gets the final hit drop S, then wtf isn’t he using it with his waifus in Nihonium? It was stated that only he can get the stat improvements because he has S drop. If waifus have S drop by way of Reservation magic, then waifus can get stat improvements. Even if the Reservation thing doesn’t work, it was mentioned earlier of the carts having a party option of sharing drop levels…

    Schadows · 9th May 2019 at 7:22 AM

    Not exactly.
    Casting it on the monster/ally will only apply HIS drop rate onto the target. Not make the finisher drop rate becoming S.

    WirlWind · 1st December 2019 at 2:04 AM

    That’s only speculation though, since he tried to get Emily to pick one up (I think?) early on, but she couldn’t touch it.

    Thus, they assumed that only he can use them. I’m kind of curious though to see him try, since it might be ‘reserved’ for the person who got the killing blow, so it -might- be possible assuming the author could think of something so simple 😛

Mathiason · 27th January 2020 at 12:27 AM

Thanks for the chapter!
What I don’t get is if he wants to make his family stronger why doesn’t he use reservation or a cart modified to share his drop rate with others and have them get seeds of their own for an hour or two once a week. They get stronger while doing so slowly to avoid attracting too much attention.

You know you’ve rewatched Stein’s gate too many times when you can actually hear his voice say the lines on the GIF
