Late afternoon. Today I took a rest from going into the dungeon, and instead relaxed myself at the living room.

And the people who were relaxing with me were Celeste and Leia.


For Celeste, it’s because today’s weather is the Magic Storm, as for Leia, she obviously would follow me, so if I was resting, she’ll do the same as well.


[Is it alright to not go to the dungeon today?] (Celeste)


While nomming on the snacks that Emily made, Celeste asked me.


[It’s fine. Today’s my rest day. I’ve already created a rule for myself.] (Ryouta)

[What kind of rule would that be?] (Celeste)

[It’s where I would not work after 5pm in the evening.] (Ryouta)

[It should be basic.] (Celeste)


Celeste nodded.

The word [Basic] was casually added.

Celeste should know well to not break yourself.


[Besides that, I decided to have a two days off a week.] (Ryouta)

[2 days off?] (Celeste)

[It’s my dream to have a two days off a week, following the calender’s weekend. Previously, it would go something along the lines of [Saturday, Sunday? What’s that? Is that delicious?]] (Ryouta)

[I don’t quite understand, but taking a break is a good thing…..Should I follow as well.] (Celeste)

[Hm? Did you say something Celeste.] (Ryouta)

[Nope, I didn’t say anything.] (Celeste)


Celeste then happily smiled.


You know, nowadays when I look at Celeste, she’s becoming more and more beautiful.

It’s not the kind where you would say “Aww she’s cute”, but just pure beauty.

She’s already such a beauty, so it’s like adding up more marks to it.

What’s more, she’s inside the mansion that Emily has revamped, when she’s inside our mansion, it’s like adding onto something which is already beautiful even more beautiful.

Hmm, the example isn’t good.

Like a tiger with wings?  No maybe a strong man with a halberd? Or like having Mona Lisa as a default Windows XP wallpaper? (TLN: Basically all these idioms means that strengthening something which is already the best even more)


Basically I have reached my end of thinking and even started to doubt myself, but regardless she’s amazing.

It’s enough to look at her and say she’s wonderful.


[It’s like Master and his revolver. Is that fine too?] (Leia)

[Eh?] (Ryouta)


Leia suddenly opened her mouth which startled me.


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

[It’s the answer to Master’s thoughts. A metaphor of a situation where a strong person gains a powerful tool in their hands, such is what I concluded after some thoughts.] (Leia)

[Ryouta-san and his revolver, that might sound nice.] (Celeste)

[NO no no no wait, I do understand where you’re getting at, but I beg you, please don’t use this outside of this mansion. It’ll spell out disaster if a certain aristocrat were to hear about this.] (Ryouta)

[If you’re talking about Cell-san, then he would’ve spread it around the world in just a day.] (Celeste)

[Exactly, so please stop it.] (Ryouta)


If it’s him I’m sure he will seriously do it, he’ll really make the saying [Ryouta and his revolver] a trend.






He can’t possibly hear any of this…..right?


I frantically turned around and looked at every corner, then went to the window and scanned everywhere.

Luckily I did not see the appearance of Cell.

He shouldn’t be resting today, but he might be bored and would come here.


[By the way….The lady, what is the status of Leia?] (Celeste)

[Eh?] (Ryouta)

[Wait, you don’t know?] (Celeste)

[Now that you mention…..] (Ryouta)


I looked at Leia.

By now, I should’ve checked her status long before.


[I know that you’re a Final F. but what about the other status.] (Ryouta)

[I do not know.] (Leia)

[Then use this please.] (Celeste)


Celeste then handed over the Portable K-I-A Board to her.

Then following the flow, I asked Leia to use it.






Strength  F

Stamina F

Intelligence F

Mentality F

Speed F

Dexterity F

Luck  F




Vegetation F

Animals F

Minerals F

Magic F

Special Items F



[Oh…..] (Ryouta)


As I looked at Leia’s status, it was a spectacular All F mark.

Both her ability and her drops were beautifully F.

And plus her level is at the highest of 1, which means I can’t do anything to help her.


[I’m sorry Leia, being forced to be put under such a state.] (Ryouta)

[? Why is Master apologizing?] (Leia)

[Etto, that’s because…never mind.] (Ryouta)


Seems like Leia doesn’t mind it at all. And she doesn’t understand why I felt apologetic to her.

That in itself is sad, it saddens me even more knowing that she had her soul taken out of her, and that she couldn’t respond to my sadness as well.

And because of that, she doesn’t mind it.

If this continues, it might go pass my sentiment.


[It’s nothing. Anyways, with this status, it’s better if you follow me from now on.] (Ryouta)

[Yes.] (Leia)

[I’m counting on you Leia.] (Ryouta)

[For the sake of Master.] (Leia)

[By the way, Ryouta-san.] (Celeste)

[Hm? What other things are you curious about Celeste?] (Ryouta)

[If her strongest level is at 1, it means she’s the same as Ryouta, so isn’t it better for her to take the magic fruit?] (Celeste)

[…..Oh?] (Ryouta)


I clapped my hands together.

I didn’t notice it, but because Celeste is a genuine magician, she would’ve noticed this sooner than me.


The magic fruit.

In exchange of lowering your level by 1, once you eat it, you will obtain a randomize magic.



The Basement floor of the mansion, I placed the magic fruit at the end of the corner which I bought recently.

Celeste also stepped far away, then I was equipped with Leia.


After waiting, the magic fruit hatched into a rogue monster.

It’s a Liquid metal monster, then it immediately took the shape of me.


[Let’s go Leia.] (Ryouta)

{Yes.} (Leia)


After Leia spoke with no emotion, we started fighting the Metal Ryouta.

While equipping Leia, arms were stretched out from the protector guard.


I then fired Repetition at the monster who can copy 80% of the targeted person.

The reason why I equipped Leia is because I wanted to see whether it would copy the arms as well, which it did, and it’s not that I want Leia to fight.

Since the results were obtained, I killed it with Repetition.


Then the Metal Ryouta dropped another magic fruit.

Originally there’s a star on top of the fruit, but after defeating the rogue monster, the star turned into 2 stars.


[Return Leia.] (Ryouta)


After retrieving the magic fruit, I asked Leia to return to her human form.

Then I handed the magic fruit to her.


[Try eating it.] (Ryouta)

[Yes.] (Leia)


Leia obediently ate the magic fruit.

Her expressionless way of eating the magic fruit was kinda surreal.


[I have learnt two new magic.] (Leia)

[Oh.] (Ryouta)

[So she did.] (Celeste)


Celeste and I looked at each other, and nodded simultaneously.

So it seems that even Leia could learn magic after eating the magic fruit.


[What kind of magic can you use Leia.] (Ryouta)

[I can’t use it.] (Leia)

[Eh?] (Ryouta)

[The magic that I’ve learned are Inferno and Raging Mist. Both Magic requires me to use MP, but because of my MP being at F, I cannot use it.] (Leia)

[Aah…..] (Ryouta)

[That’s right, if your MP is at F, you practically can’t use any of the magic spells out there.] (Celeste)


Again Celeste and I looked at each other, this time both of us could see the colour of disappointment in each of us.


When you eat the magic fruit, your max level will permanently drop by one.

That kind of demerit has no use for me and Leia, where our highest level is already at 1. Hence why we could take the magic fruit without any consequences.


However, the problem with this is that magic needs MP to cast.

If your entire status is at F, there’s really no good way to use it.


[I thought it would work.] (Celeste)

[….No, it might just work.] (Ryouta)

[Eh?] (Celeste)

[Before she learns a basic magic, we’ll let her eat as many magic fruits as she can.] (Ryouta)

[Wait a minute Ryouta-san, 1 magic fruit right now is worth 2 million Piros, and you’ll learn a random magic, so it’s like throwing 2 million Piros away.] (Ryouta)

[Celeste, let me teach you a good phrase. My colleague said it back in the day.] (Ryouta)

[Wh, what could it be….] (Celeste)


Celeste tensed up, and then I told her.


[Before you pull a gacha, the probability of it getting is always 100%.] (Ryouta) (TLN: I’m not entirely sure whether it’s this meaning, or it’s the gacha logic as in “As long as it’s 1%, if I pull 100 times, I’ll surely get it!” kind?)

[Isn’t that just what a useless human would think!?] (Celeste)


Celeste shouted.

Going through the words of Celeste, I once again went out and bought another magic fruit.


For the second magic fruit, I hatched it into a rogue monster, and instantly kill it with Repetition.

Then the magic fruit that dropped, I let Leia eat it.


[I have learned two magics.] (Leia)

[How about now?] (Ryouta)

[End・Of・Calamity.] (Leia)

[That sounds like an extremely strong magic! But it sounds like you can’t use it as well.] (Ryouta)

[Yes.] (Leia)

[How about the other one?] (Ryouta)

[Revive.] (Leia)

[Revive..so a resurrection magic? That sounds like a strong magic as well, and I’m sure you can’t use it as well.] (Ryouta)

[Ryouta-san…..] (Celeste)


Celeste who was looking over me showed a complicated expression.

A 2 million piro gacha, thrown out of the window—–it was that sort of complicated expression she was showing.


Leaving that expression aside, I continued pulling.

Now for the next magic fruit—-was what I wanted to do when suddenly.


[I can use it.] (Leia)

[Eh?} (Ryouta)

[I can use Revive.] (Leia)


After Leia said that, both Celeste and I were shocked.


[You can use it? I thought Revive was an extremely powerful magic?] (Ryouta)

[Aah…..] (Leia)

[What’s wrong Leia?] (Ryouta)

[I just remember the details of Revive. If that’s the case then she indeed can use it.] (Celeste)

[Is that so?] (Ryouta)

[Yeap. It’s what people call a Trash Magic. Normally it’s the most useless out of every other useless magic.] (Celeste)

[…..Normally?] (Ryouta)


Celeste nodded, then asked me to wait for a bit as she went upstairs, then come back down immediately.

For some reason she brought a carrot with her.


Then she handed the carrot to Leia.


[Try using Revive on this carrot.] (Celeste)

[I understand.] (Leia)


After receiving the carrot, she used the magic as ordered.

Trash Magic・Revive.


At that moment.

It was not a joke, it was instant.


The Carrot…..hatched into a Drowsy Slime.


[This is!?] (Ryouta)

[Revive, meaning to resurrect a monster, to turn a drop item into a rogue monster.] (Celeste)

[….So that’s why it’s called a Trash Magic.] (Ryouta)


Celeste nodded.

This magic really has no use in this world.

The only thing I could think of is it being used during the Harvest Festival.

Thus, I understood the reason it was called a Trash Magic.




[It’s plenty useful for Ryouta-san.] (Celeste)

[Yeap. You did well Leia.] (Ryouta)

[….All I did was eat the magic fruit.] (Leia)

[Nonetheless, Leia you’re amazing.] (Ryouta)

[…..Yes.] (Leia)


Leia nodded with a complicated face, but it was a slightly unnatural look.


A magic that hatches dropped items into rogue monster, Revive.

As Celeste mentioned, it is a tremendous magic that benefits me.

Mellitus · 23rd December 2018 at 3:34 AM

Just when I thought he can’t get any more absurd.

JayVlad Dark Heart · 23rd December 2018 at 4:53 AM

There are SATOU everywhere! Please stop popping your OPness EVERYWHERE.
It’s already pass the barrier of our Common sense and ridiculous absurd. Lol xD

Well, thank you for this chapter! 🙂

    Namae nashi desu~ · 23rd December 2018 at 6:02 AM

    Just for information, commonsense-chan already die long time ago even before the planet born. So people keep revive it back and kill it repeatedly. So there’s even now, we have no commonsense at all.

Namae nashi desu~ · 23rd December 2018 at 6:05 AM

Thanks for your great work
He have recycle farming now isn’t it?

Mesmerised · 23rd December 2018 at 10:12 AM

Thanks for the chapter!

Sandvikboy · 23rd December 2018 at 10:46 AM

I guess we’re just supposed to ignore how Leia’s earrings should prevent her from using magic.

    Shiro · 23rd December 2018 at 11:32 AM

    Yes….yes we should XD At this point, I’m not even surprised…and I don’t really mind it anymore.

      bioslayer165 · 23rd December 2018 at 6:05 PM

      Also the fact that there was a magic storm going on at the time of them doing this.

        Kachidoki · 23rd December 2018 at 9:34 PM

        Their house is magic storm-proof

sfcipher · 23rd December 2018 at 2:23 PM

Season’s Greetings! Thanks for the treat.

GonZ555 · 23rd December 2018 at 4:51 PM

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

So why didn’t ryouta eat more of those fruits? Or make a level 3 fruit?

    Rexsaur · 23rd December 2018 at 7:23 PM

    I think that there is a limit but I don’t know how much

Alex Tran · 23rd December 2018 at 10:47 PM

My reaction:…Wha…
Friends reaction: Oh ****! My life points hit zero a long time ago!

John Andre (Daska) · 24th December 2018 at 8:12 AM

Wait a minute, can we just talk about [End・Of・Calamity.] for a second here? Kinda seems just a tad bit important by the way isn’t Ryouta technically a drop from a monster? What would revive do if used on him? Instant kill by deletion the most OP adventurer that has the “gods” at his finger tips and is by far the most power human in that world with what is regarded as the most trash magic even among trash magic? That’s awesome. Thanks for the chapter.

    spare · 26th February 2022 at 11:24 PM

    Not only that it’s actually a rather terrifying magic rather then useless depending on the limits of casting. Think about it here you are trying to kill someone then while in the dungeon or traveling between towns suddenly there weapon turns into a monster before all of there equipment is trying to kill them [granted this requires you being able to use it on other peoples possessions], which if possible could also cause mayhem in towns. There’s also the grand eater what would have happened if they had used revive on all those eaters rather then leaving them to hatch

iamviruz · 26th December 2018 at 1:44 AM

Hmm, yup. I bet that’s what all those whalers think when they are pulling the gachas. I played FGO so I know that feeling of wanting to finish all of your quartz when you still don’t get the unit that you want.


Mr SpinelesS · 25th February 2019 at 2:12 PM

Are the earrings making everything F?
That attempted suicide when they first met sure seemed like high level magic to me…

    Schadows · 11th May 2019 at 6:33 AM

    Didn’t she use a stone for that ?

Schadows · 11th May 2019 at 6:37 AM

Dear Mr. author … Don’t give Ryouta strong abilities, only to forget them when it suits you.

Ryouta has a magic that can boost the status for a day. He already used it on every members of his Familia at one point.

Boosting Leia’s MP should have been a formality.
