Featured Image: Try taking a guess~ Another 50 points will be given to whoever can guess this~


Nihonium, first floor.

I was simply walking around and defeating Skeletons.


The bullet I was using is the new bullet—-for now I’ll name it the Growth Bullet.


Since Selen said that [the more you hit, the more it grows], so all I have to do is hit more mobs on the first floor. And the best place to not care about item drops, is also Nihonium.


Other dungeons just cannot beat the [number] of monsters spawned here as there are no adventurers fighting for my spot.




Pulling the trigger, I shot another Skeleton.


[Hmmmm, the power and speed is still lower than that of a Normal Bullet. Around 70% of its power?] (Ryouta)


Then, I encountered another Skeleton.

I took out both revolvers this time, then fired both a Normal Bullet and the Growth Bullet.


Both bullets landed at the left and right shoulders of the Skeleton.

The Growth Bullet was obviously slower and less powerful.


Well, that really isn’t the problem.

It is a Growth bullet after all, so obviously it’ll be weak from the start. But that’s what makes it fun as well to train something up.


Without minding the damage, I continued to hunt for more Skeletons.


I left the drops for my pouch to absorb it, while I continued.

Repeating that for quite some time—-however.


[This is quite a pickle.] (Ryouta)


I unconsciously let out my voice.

The amount of seeds that I’ve collected in my pouch has already accumulated to that of 1 status upgrade, but the bullet hasn’t leveled up at all.

The characters engraved by Selen on the bullet still shows Level 1.


I don’t know if there’s a special condition that needs to be met, but for the time being I’ll have to continue as such.


Thus, I continued to fight, till the point where I reached a collection similar to ranking up twice, and the Growth Bullet has finally leveled up to 2 without any sign.


So it’s as she said huh.

However, this is quite the challenge to accumulated this much of hits.


[What can I do…..] (Ryouta)


Staring at the engravings on the bullet, I started thinking of various options.



Selen Dungeon, inside the spirit’s room, Selen.


Using the Teleportation Room, I brought Leia over as well.


[Yo.] (Ryouta)

[Wah, you really came back again.] (Selen)

[Didn’t I tell you that I will return?] (Ryouta)

[You did say that, but I didn’t expect you to come back so soon again. I thought you would come back after another 100 years or so.] (Selen)

[Any human would’ve died after a 100 years have past. If that’s the case, should I meet with you everyday?] (Ryouta)

[I’ll get bored~] (Selen)


Selen laughed, as she looked to be in a good mood.

Even though she has such a beautiful feature, her personality is quite exciting to say the least.


Just by looking at her, you would’ve thought she was a gravure idol, a sister character.

That was the sort of woman(spirit) I felt when looking at her.


[And, who’s that over there?] (Selen)

[Aah, she’s my friend. Her name’s Leia.] (Ryouta)

[I am Master’s thing.] (Leia)

[What sort of play is that! I’m so jealous!] (Selen)

[Don’t get the wrong idea, it’s not a play or anything…..] (Ryouta)


Did she just think of something perverted?


[Anyways, I have a request to make. Can you put the zero MP consumption ability to Leia as well?] (Ryouta)

[To that?] (Selen)

[Yeah. It’s important.] (Ryouta)

[Hmmm, that’s a no no.] (Selen)


Selen plainly said that, which made my eyebrows twitched.

I thought she was someone who I could depend on, was I wrong?


[No matter what?] (Ryouta)

[That is something that I gave to you and only you, so it’s impossible to give to anyone else.] (Selen)

[I see…..] (Ryouta)


I thought that if I gave it to Leia, she might be able to finally use MP to cast magic.


[It’s not like I can’t remove it.] (Selen)

[Eh?] (Ryouta)

[If it’s just putting it onto her then it’s okay~] (Selen)

[So that’s how it is.] (Ryouta)


This time I bitterly smiled.

I guess the request wasn’t a replacement.


[So can you help with that?] (Ryouta)

[Of course. However, if you’re asking from me….you know what that means right?] (Selen)

[Yeah yeah, I know.] (Ryouta)


I went closed to Selen, then I held my hands out and tried to lean close to her—–it was then.

Selen dodged my hand and went behind Leia.


[Why?] (Ryouta)

[Isn’t it natural for the person who requested for help to do it?] (Selen)

[…..That’s true.] (Ryouta)

[And so, let us be alone for awhile.] (Selen)



I looked at Leia.

I just said [don’t worry], and Leia silently nodded.


Thus, I used the teleportation gate and went back to the mansion.

After waiting for some time, I went back to her room.


The two of them were strangely far apart, and for some reason Selen’s face was shining.

(TLN Note: If you can guess this manga, I’ll give you 50 bucks virtual P.S It’s one of my top 3 yuri manga)



[Fuuu…..twas was good, such goodness~] (Selen) (TLN: She’s using a hokkaido dialect from kenboku)

[No no no…..since when were you that kind of character?] (Ryouta)

[When the other person is an adorable girl, my heart turns to an old man!] (Selen)

[Is that intentional! And, Leia are you alright?] (Ryouta)

[Yes.] (Leia)


In contrast to the beaming Selen, Leia was as per usual.


[I see, then that’s—] (Ryouta)

[No matter what’s been done to me, my heart and body will always be Master’s.] (Leia)

[Really, what did she do to you—-! ?] (Ryouta)


I screamed.


[Don’t worry~ it wasn’t anything big. You’ll hate me if I go overboard right~] (Selen)

[It’s pretty complicated….] (Ryouta)


For now…..I’ll trust her words.


[Alright, with that it’s an okay~ From now on, she’ll have no MP consumption when she’s in this dungeon.] (Selen)


I was swayed, but at least the request went through properly.



Selen Dungeon, first floor.

While being in the state of equipping Leia, we went towards one end of the dungeon where it’s less crowded.

It’s not like I mind people seeing what I’m doing, but because I don’t want to bother other adventurers earning their productions, I rather find a secluded area.


Finding a monster, it was the rainbow coloured Slime.

Firing it with the Growth Bullet, a soy came out.


Then I gathered the soy.


[Leia, use Revive.] (Ryouta)

{Affirmative.} (Leia)


Leia used Revive on the soys, and the soys turned back into rainbow slimes.

Then using the Growth Bullet, I killed it.


[Use it again Leia.] (Ryouta)

{Revive.} (Leia)


With that, I repeated the loop over and over again.


{Master.} (Leia)

[What is it?] (Ryouta)

{I’ll do it for you, you can go ahead and rest.} (Leia)


While I was repeating it, Leia extended her arms, and gestured for the revolver.


[I’m happy that you’re concerned for me, but we can’t do that. In order for this loop to happen, either we need a Drop A or Drop S like me for a guaranteed drop. So Leia, unfortunately you can’t do that.] (Ryouta)

{I see. As expected of Master.} (Leia)


Thus we continued to train the Growth Bullet.

It took quite a while but the level finally went up to 3, and the permanent loop has been completed without a problem.

Serious TLN Note:

Apparently, the Author of Cut&Paste, Sakuya, has recently passed away sometime the end of January this year. It is a very sad thing to witness as I really enjoyed reading and translating his series and wanted it to continue to have a manga adaptation and finally an anime adaptation. Sadly, we would not be able to see that happen, and would only hope that it ends at a good note.

With that, I would like to let everyone to know that I will still be continuing the translation of the series, until the latest chapter, as I hope it would leave as a last good effort in commemorating the series. Thank you everyone for constantly supporting the series and also my website. I hope that after I’m done with the series, I would find another good novel that is as nice as cut&paste to translate.

News of it happening by Stranger in Discord.

For those who can’t really read it, I’ll briefly translate it.

News concerning the recent passing of Sakuya sensei

On the 27th of January 2019, the author of cut and paste, Sakuya, has passed away.

We express our deepest condolences from the bottom of our hearts, and deeply appreciated all the contributions that he gave to us, and with that, we pray for his soul.

Tsugikuru corporation.


The series cut and paste debuted on the June of 2017, and Sakuya sensei has won the grand prize of the Tsugikuru’s book launching event. It was a very memorable work from him.

Even before meeting him, he had a deep knowledge of the fantasy and games genre.

There were also many cases where the affection of the character can be felt, and I could not forget the appearance of Sakuya sensei who always talks about it with a smile on his face.

Although I haven’t been able to collect my feelings and thoughts about his sudden passing, the characters that he has created will forever remain in the minds of the readers.

All of us will pray for him dearly.

From the editorial department.

Living in this world of copy & paste.

dicky satria · 9th February 2019 at 1:13 AM

R.I.P. Author sensei….. may he be reincarnated into an isekai world that doesnt have asshole god/goddess

Nicholas Patton · 9th February 2019 at 1:13 AM

I’m quite saddened to hear about Sakuya’s passing. I loved reading the “Living in Another World with Cut & Paste” web novel and always wondered how the series would end. It would be great if someone with the same passion and love for this kind of series would continue “Cut & Paste” in honor of Sakuya – though I don’t know if anyone would.

spare · 9th February 2019 at 1:14 AM

RIP sensei hope you make some good ones for when get over there too. On a positive note procrastinating finally paid off since now know to not start reading it

spare · 9th February 2019 at 1:17 AM

Too bad the mp is only in Selen if he could do it at home he could just set up dozens(hundreds?) of cages in the basement then rapid fire at all the monsters while Leia just keeps reviving them

GonZ555 · 9th February 2019 at 1:36 AM

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

So does that mean Leia can use the OP spells she has now?

DMR · 9th February 2019 at 1:37 AM

Haa… that’s so sad… this was quite an original novel, even though it used all the same tropes… it was an OP MC slice of life, but done really well. It was chill and relaxing. And for the author to have passed away is quite sad…

And we are only about 50% into what he wrote for the series. Was this series near completion at least??? If not, that’d be even more sad, for him to not complete his vision and for readers to not see it.

But seriously, thank you for keeping on translating the series. 185 chapters left to go (maybe a little more?)…

Ha… sad news, sad news…

Shiryo · 9th February 2019 at 1:50 AM

JayVlad Dark Heart · 9th February 2019 at 10:41 AM

RIP Sakuya-sensei. May your spirit reincarnates in another world with better way.

Well, thank you for this chapter! 🙂

    Shiro · 9th February 2019 at 11:15 AM

    Haha that actually is kinda a good way to send someone off huh. Saying that they’ll be reincarnated. I wish someone would so the same to me if I ever pass.

    Anyways thanks for reading 🙂

pokeperson1000 · 9th February 2019 at 11:35 PM

R.I.P. Sakuya sensei. We love you, we appreciate you, and we’ll miss you.
R.I.P. Cut & Paste. It will never have a canon ending.

BrassKnight · 11th February 2019 at 7:21 AM

Nooo!!!! R.I.P Sakuya. It’s a shame we’ll never see how Cut&Paste would’ve ended (the rest of the divine beasts, the revival of the elves, etc.). And, of course, this series, we will never get to see where it was going.

Mychael Dark · 11th February 2019 at 9:36 PM

I would say Rest in Peace to Author Sakuya for such a great light hearted story, but to be honest I don’t want you to rest in peace.

I want you to get reborn into a world of adventure where you have now become the MC in your own Isekai story. Where you may find fun, love (with a harem or not), trials and tribulations to overcome and the power for your soul to fly freely from one adventure to the next with the ones you love, come to love and the friends and ally’s you make along the way. You’re creativity and humor will be missed amongst us who followed your work, but for the happiness and joy you brought us I want you to experience your own story to it’s fullest from one life to the next.
