TLN Note: Now there’s androids? Cool~

 

I looked around Samechiren, over and over, checking even carefully than usual.

After assuring that there was no one around me, I placed a drop item to hatch it into a rogue monster.

 

The air around me changed completely, as the Dungeon Master・Satanachia appeared in front of me.

 

[Repetition!] (Ryouta)

 

I casted the magic in a flash.

The strongest farming magic that instantly kills anything without any conditions.

The Dungeon Master was no exception, as it was instantly killed the moment the magic was activated.

 

[Fuuu…..] (Ryouta)

 

I was a little relieved.

Even though I’ve already confirmed my surroundings, I still quickly killed it with repetition.

Reason being Satanachia has a special ability to control women.

 

Even if by itself, it’s not that strong, but when it manipulates some random bypasser, then it would be troublesome.

Before it becomes hectic, I rather kill it immediately.

 

The rogue monster of Satanachia dropped something.

Approaching it, I found it to be an earring.

The moment i picked up the earring, an effect popped inside my head.

 

Satanachia’s Ring, when equipped, it would invalidate the ability of a woman.

 

[……Hmmm.] (Ryouta)

 

I tilted my head and unconsciously groaned.

I kinda understood. The Demon Satanachia who controls every women would drop an item which suppresses it’s ability…..I was somewhat convinced.

However, from the dropped items I’ve gotten from rogue monsters so far, this effect is too subtle.

 

I think it would make more sense once I give this to a woman as a gift….was what I thought.

 

[Well, it’s not something useful anyways.] (Ryouta)

 

Sometimes there are exceptions.

Even though it’s a drop item from a Dungeon Master, it’s effect isn’t something great.

The Bicorn Horn that Celeste has from the Dungeon Master・Bicorn, is basically using an infinite amount of beginner’s magic.

It was perfect for Celeste, but it’s inherently subtle.

 

Someday it might be useful.

I thought as such as I pushed the earrings into my pocket and started walking back to Samechiren.

I met a woman while I was walking halfway.

 

It was a mysterious woman, even though I was right in front of her eyes, it’s as if her presence doesn’t even exist.

It was so severe that if I so much as close my eyes, I would lose sight of her. That was how thin her presence was.

However, after arriving at this world for quite some time, I have gradually improved my skill in perceiving things that others normally could not.

 

Still I could not feel the presence of the woman in front of me.

 

Is it a ghost——-? My body started shivering.

 

The woman casually stopped her feet and took something out of her pocket before placing it on the ground.

Immediately afterwards, a magic circle started spreading around that place.

 

It was a purple magic circle, it looked like a poisonous light that was reflecting a cocktail light.

 

Then the presence—–was born.

It wasn’t the woman, but the magic circle.

To put it more accurately, it’s close to something like a consciousness.

 

Slaughter…..Destruction.

 

Such words emerged in my mind, and I jumped into the magic circle immediately.

 

Bachin!

 

I tried jumping in, but a purplish lighting fired towards me from the edge of the magic circle.

Her hands were slowly burning.

 

It was a bad magic circle after all. I do not know the details, but it was clear that if the woman stood there any longer, she’ll disappear.

 

[Hey! What are you doing, quickly get out of there!] (Ryouta)

 

I shouted loudly.

The woman turned quietly towards me.

 

I was slightly frightened.

Surprised, and stunned.

 

Her eyes when she turned around——no it’s her face.

It was a doll devoid of any emotions.

 

The situation was progressing while I was frustrated.

The magic circle is eating her up.

Her long hair was becoming shorter, and the clothes she was wearing were slowly erasing from the bottom.

 

This is no time to see!

My head turned fully awake.

What is happening, and what can I do to stop it.

What I have now, is my abilities.

All of them processed in my mind in an instant.

 

Together, they came up with one possibility.

I cannot afford to think any longer.

 

I pulled out my two revolvers, loaded the Flam and Frozen bullets respectively.

I immediately fired….It fused and became the Annihilation Bullet.

 

The Annihilation Bullet was aimed at the ground—–and several Annihilation Bullets were fired to eat away the magic circle.

The missing parts of the magic circle immediately lost its effect and the purple lightning stopped.

 

Eventually, the area returned back to the natural outdoors.

The woman—–was safe.

 

[…..Phew.] (Ryouta)

 

I breathed out a sigh of relief.

An instant idea, an idea that I only had in mind which managed to succeed.

 

[What is the matter?]

[Don’t you what’s wrong with me? What were you even thinking! ?] (Ryouta)

 

I shouted in anger.

I do not know her circumstances, but it clearly looked like she was about to commit suicide.

 

[It was the instruction of Master.]

[Instruction? From your master?] (Ryouta)

[Since we have became garbage to be disposed of, we decided to clean ourselves, from Master.]

[…..What did you just say?] (Ryouta)

 

I felt my belly growled in agony.

 

 

I listened to her while holding my revolvers with the Flame and Frozen bullets just for precaution.

 

[First of all what do you mean by garbage. I think someone who uses such words on a human being is not right in their mind.] (Ryouta)

[Master is not wrong.]

[Huh?] (Ryouta)

[I am an artificial life form, a thing without a soul. So disposing me is the correct expression.]

[Artificial….life form?] (Ryouta)

 

I was lost in words.

 

[Yo, you mean like a robot or like an android?] (Ryouta)

[Robo-to? An-droid?]

[Aah….uhh something like a golem? Or like a homunculus?] (Ryouta)

 

The woman quietly nodded.

 

[Very close, we are near equals.]

[Why is such a thing…..?] (Ryouta)

[……Is that a question regarding the purpose of why we are manufactured?]

 

The woman tilted her head with no emotions on her face.

 

[Ah, yeah.] (Ryouta)

[It is for the sake of the dungeon.]

[For the Dungeon?] (Ryouta)

[I was made to artificially produce A Drop items. However, I have failed, and all the Drops I receive are F. And so I am a failed work.]

 

The woman said it in a slow and monotonous voice.

While shutting my mouth, I heard her explanation.

 

Thus I was able to grasp the situation.

 

[In other words, because ordinary adventurers have variations in their productivity, so they decided to manufacture the best artificial lifeform to drop A Drop items in a fixed manner.] (Ryouta)

 

She nodded.

 

[However you failed…..Damnit.] (Ryouta)

[Why are you angry?]

[Well because—–] (Ryouta)

[Why are you getting angry at a failed work being thrown away?]

[Uhh…..] (Ryouta)

 

I unconsciously breathed in.

When being asked as such, it seems like a logical answer.

 

[We, well even so it’s not good. Anyways…..I will not allow myself to allow you to break yourself.] (Ryouta)

[That would be a problem.]

[Why?] (Ryouta)

[It is the instruction of my Master, I have to follow his order.]

 

This is apparently legitimate too.

 

[Can’t we change your master?] (Ryouta)

 

It was an almost spinal reflex of an answer.

In such a case, changing the master is the only way to solve this fundamentally speaking.

 

[It can be done.]

[Then what should I do?] (Ryouta)

[Put your hands on my chest. Then, supply mana that is more than my previous Master. To overwrite it.]

[And?] (Ryouta)

[That is all.]

[That’s it?] (Ryouta)

[I am still a prototype, so it is easy for it to change.]

 

Indeed, alright, if that’s the case—–

 

[However.]

[However?] (Ryouta)

 

I stopped my hands from stretching forward to her chest.

[My power source consumes my Master’s mana little by little just by being near—–.]

 

I stretched out my hand and touched her chest.

Then I sent my mana over to her.

 

I don’t know whether mana is MP or Intelligence in this case, but it doesn’t matter.

Either way both of it is SS which goes far beyond this world’s human being.

 

Her body glowed for a moment before settling down.

 

[How was it?] (Ryouta)

[The transfer of Master has been completed.]

[Alright.] (Ryouta)

[…..Is that okay?]

 

I could finally see her expression from her face.

Although it was almost inexpressible, a colour of puzzlement appeared at a level if I look real close.

Was it a question of whether it was fine consuming my MP?

 

[Aah, there’s no problem.] (Ryouta)

 

Way better than sacrificing yourself just because of your Master.

More than anything.

 

Seeing something being forced to do such things due to the unilateral circumstances above, I did not feel comfortable without intervening.

  1. So does she mean she eats into his current mana pool constantly to power herself or does she decrease the owner’s max mp? I guess Ryouta can deal with either case pretty easily either way though.

  2. What if he sees a million of those androids.. What will he do? Taking all of them doesn’t seem logical at all.. Even if he have all the mana, the space for them to stay and what their job is going to be after this.. Being idle is a waste of mana after all.

    Thanks
