Lanthanum Dungeon, 20th floor.
Mao・Mi, the chairman of Flint Association was with me on this floor.
Looking around me, there was nobody else besides us.
[It’s a loan nano!] (Mao)
Mao said with an innocent looking smile, which suited her petite look.
[A loan?] (Ryouta)
[That’s right. Because you requested Mao, Mao asked all of the adventurers to stay away from this floor, so you are loaning from Mao.] (Mao)
[Are you sure you should do such a thing?] (Ryouta)
[It’s fine. There’s no place in this world that has a higher priority than asking you a favour.] (Mao)
Mao said something with that innocent look on her face.
It’s amazing for her to say that to me.
At that time, inside the chairman’s office of Shikuro.
Cell and his men were doing paperwork.
[Is something the matter, Cell-sama?]
[I just received a revelation.] (Cell)
[It is a revelation whereby we have to show to each other, showing our own beliefs to one another.] (Cell)
[I apologize for not understanding, but please do your best.]
[What happened? Why the scary look?] (Mao)
[It’s nothing, I just have this sudden chill…. It’s just my imagination.] (Ryouta)
It felt like something was going on in someplace which I did not know of, but I decided to brush it off.
[Anyways, what do you want to do with the sword?] (Mao)
Mao asked as she saw me holding onto the sword.
[I’ve done my research, but the number one most used weapon for adventurers are swords.] (Ryouta)
[Yes nano, it’s an easy to use weapon, that’s guaranteed by Mao.] (Mao)
[That’s why I have it now.] (Ryouta)
[Mao doesn’t know what’s happening, but Mao will cheer for you.] (Mao)
I grabbed hold of the sword.
It’s something that I’m not familiar with.
After coming to this world and defeating rogue monsters, I’ve only been using the bullets and revolvers and some magic, but never the weapons of this world.
But right now, it is necessary to use it.
The monster of the 20th floor, the flaming ninja.
A monster with flames all over its body, and wearing a ninja clothes.
Then, the flaming ninja who noticed me, stormed its way to me, and tried to slice me with the hidden sword on him.
I stopped it with my own sword, and both metals clashed with sparks flying around.
The ninja took a step back, and swung at me again.
Before it could attack again, I slashed at it, and it fell to the ground, dropping sake.
Today’s regime wasn’t to collect the Bodley・Ryouta, but to train for my sword fight.
After walking around for a little while, another flaming ninja appeared.
I didn’t immediately defeat it, but observed his every movement.
The flaming ninja was easy to understand.
There are two patterns of attack when rushing, depending on which leg moves first.
If it moves with its left leg first, it’ll pull out its sword, but if it moves with its right leg first, then it’ll throw a shuriken.
And when it turns around, seemingly doing nothing, it turns back and throws its shuriken.
Seeing through these patterns is one way of optimizing my way of using the sword.
Suppressing my ability, and lowering my speed to about a C rank.
Using that ability, I made an optimized movement to face against the flaming ninjas.
[Alright, with this I’ve reduced time by nearly 20%.] (Ryouta)
Mao applauded with her hands.
[You watched the entire thing?] (Ryouta)
[Yes nano! It was very cool, especially the last one where you seemed to be dancing.] (Mao)
[Dancing huh, that might be the case if I kept following a certain pattern.] (Ryouta)
Recalling the various patterns and optimizations that I’ve done, it might look like dancing to an outsider.
After writing down the optimized pattern and path using a pen and paper I bought in advance, I handed it to Mao.
[What is this?] (Mao)
[This here is the safest and quickest way to fight against a flaming ninja using a sword. Freely distribute this information to the adventurers.] (Ryouta)
[It’s a waste. There were some great moves even for Mao who isn’t an expert fighter, so it’s a shame to share it freely to others.] (Mao)
[It’s alright for it to be free.] (Ryouta)
After answering her, I further pushed the paper to her.
Mao stares at the paper intently.
[Did something unreasonable happened somewhere?] (Mao)
[Let’s see, I don’t think the other person did anything unreasonable] (Ryouta)
I recalled Matier’s face.
And his family’s boss.
Though I do not know who he or she was, but what I know for sure is that the way that family works is something I could not forgive.
Although Matier looked happy after quitting, but I can’t stand that what I created for him was stolen by his boss.
Because of that, I came to this floor with a sword which is used by most adventurers and came up with an optimized route and pattern which reduces time by up to 20% for all the adventurers to use for free.
Publishing it for free.
[My condolences to the person who’s gonna get it.] (Mao)
[Yeah, haha.] (Ryouta)
[But they deserve it.] (Mao)
[Even though you said that nobody is doing something unreasonable, but the fact that they are going to get what they paid is funny.] (Mao)
[That’s true.] (Ryouta)
It would be nice if it’s that way.
Mao then finally took the note from my hand.
[Mao shall take responsibility by spreading this method to all of Flint’s adventurers!] (Mao)
[Thanks, I’ll entrust it to you.] (Ryouta)
[Don’t mention it. It’s an honour that Mao can be a part of Ryouta’s system!] (Mao)
[I beg you to not use that name on me.] (Ryouta)
However, since she’s happy about it, I leave it as is for now.
After awhile, the system of Lanthanum’s 20th floor has spread.
And there were rumours that Matier’s family has lost their credit after being called out for selling shabby ways in the 20th dungeon.
TLN Note: The delay has been long overdue, I now present Terror’s banner!
