TLN Note: Starting from November through December, I will be releasing Level 1 Guy’s chapter on Friday’s, Saturday’s, and Sunday’s. Same goes with Cut&Paste, Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s, and Thursday’s. Take this as a little gift for everyone who has been reading these LN for 2 years, and I hope that I would continue to enjoy making them for all of you readers.


In the morning, I woke up and got out of bed.

With the morning sun eluding warmth from the window, I walked towards the salon.

And inside the salon, I saw Celeste sitting on the sofa, leaning on the elbow rest.


“What’s wrong Celeste?” (Ryouta)

“Aah…..Ryouta-san. It’s nothing, just another Magical Storm.” (Celeste)

“Ara.” (Ryouta)


Having the Magical Storm hitting this place a few times really makes it depressing for Celeste, who is primarily a magic user.


“Are you alright?” (Ryouta)

“Yeah, it’s the usual, and there’s no sickness. However, I heard that it’s going to take longer, so I’m feeling a little melancholy.” (Celeste)

“It’s going to be longer than usual?” (Ryouta)

“Yeah, I heard that it’s going to continue for 5 consecutive days.” (Celeste)

“That’s long!” (Ryouta)


I was slightly surprised.

To continue for 5 whole days……This might be the longest one yet.


“It’s that kind of season, so we can’t help it.” (Celeste)

“It’s like during the rainy season of some sort huh.” (Ryouta)

“Are you fine as well?” (Celeste)

“Me?” (Ryouta)

“You look rather serious these days. Did something major happen recently?” (Celeste)


I then touch my own face.

As I’ve found a way to finally meet with Nihonium, I’m getting pumped up.

But it’s that obvious huh.


“I wonder.” (Ryouta)

“Do you need my help?” (Celeste)


Celeste pushed herself up and looked at me after saying that.

I am happy that she’s offering.


“It’s alright, I can handle it.” (Ryouta)

“……..Well, if it’s Ryouta-san then I’m sure you can do it.” (Celeste)


Celeste then went back to her usual laidback manner on the couch.

To have faith from my friend.

Guess I should head to Nihonium again with that feeling still fresh.



After having my breakfast, I once again head to Plumbum’s place, and we chatted.


Apparently, she managed to yet again power up Ryo-sama.

The face is getting more cool looking, and the clothes he wore is much sophisticated.


It would be my utter defeat if we were to come out and compare with each other.


With that thought, I bid Plumbum farewell and head to Nihonium next.

There, I did some farming with the Zombie Dragons.


Most of the time, I would use the Invisible Blue Flames Bullet to defeat them, but if I encounter any 1 digit Dragons, I would use the Beads of Time and defeat them.

And if I encounter any 3 or above counters, I would instead use my Growth and Annihilation Bullets combination to defeat it.


This is how I’m trying to grasp things.

Like how I stopped using the Invisible Blue Flames Bullet to defeat 3 counters and higher as it would slow down the farming speed.


While farming, I suddenly felt an intense headache.

It must be from the effects of the Magical Storm.


MP, Intelligence and Mentality.

Since all 3 of these are at Rank SS, the effects of the Magical Storm would hit harder.

What’s more——


“Repetition.” (Ryouta)


Even after chanting the magic, nothing appeared.


Being side tracked, I encountered a 1 counter Zombie Dragon.

Throwing the Beads of Time on it, I then fired bullets till it was defeated.


Picking up the Dex seeds——–I realized something.

I’m glad that I won’t need to rely on Repetition to defeat the counter 1 Dragons, since the Magical Storm is going to continue for a full 5 days.


“I think it’s best to find more ways to defeat them.” (Ryouta)


What pattern to use when I encounter 3, 4, and 5.


And even for the 99 counter one, even though it’s rare.


Suddenly, I heard some clapping from behind.


It was rather sudden, so I turned behind and looked around, since nobody would ever come  here.

Who I saw was Neptune and his teammates.


“Amazing of you to find a safe way to farm here. Plus during a Magical Storm no less.” (Neptune)

“What’s up? For you to come here as well is rare of you.” (Ryouta)

“Ahaha, I heard that there were people who have completed this dungeon, so I can finally retire.” (Neptune)

“Retire……?” (Ryouta)

“I was the one in charge of checking things in Nihonium when it first emerged.” (Neptune)

“……….Aah.” (Ryouta)


An abyss of memory emerged and slammed into my head.


This happened more than a year ago.

When Emily and I worked hard on the first and second floors of Teruru, and when my abilities were all F.


That was when Nihonium was first born, and the Neptune Family was in charge of checking things out.


“That’s right, I completely forgotten about it.” (Ryouta)

“I can finally retire from this dungeon.” (Neptune)

“Retire? You did say that just now, but what do you mean by that?” (Ryouta)

“I’ve checked out all of the floors of this dungeon, except for this, as I can’t defeat the 1 and 2 counters of the Zombie Dragons.” (Neptune)

“Is that so.” (Ryouta)

“Yeap. Ril, Ran.” (Neptune)

“Yeah yeah, I just have to do it right.” (Ril)

“Leave it to me.” (Ran)


Both of them then stood out, and started chanting when they saw a Zombie Dragon with the counter 3 on it.


“God Blaze!”

“Devil Cast!”


The black and white magic was casted on Neptune.

Then, white and black wings appeared from behind Neptune.


Then, the counter minus 2 in an instant.

With that, Neptune used all his strength to punch the Zombie Dragon, and it was blown away.


“As you can see, this is how I usually fight. I can win easily if it’s 3, but it’s impossible with the 1 and 2.” (Neptune)

“Now I see what you mean.” (Ryouta)


It’s basically his surefire way move.


“But then again, you’ve been an adventurer for so long, so you know as well. Nobody can defeat the counter 1 for a long time.” (Neptune)

“But well, there’s no problem now.” (Ryouta)


As someone with All S Drop, the word impossible is nill to me.


But, it’s not strange for Neptune to retire from this dungeon as he isn’t able to defeat the counter 1 and 2 Zombie Dragons.


So, even if he reported it to the Dungeon Association——and at that time it was Clint——it can’t be helped.


“Hence why I’m here. I wanted to see the person who has surpassed me.” (Neptune)

“I see.” (Ryouta)

“You’re simply amazing. Hey, why not join my team?” (Neptune)

“You’re saying this again?” (Ryouta)

“Of course I’ll be persistent. I’m always interested in you.” (Neptune)

“You did say that many times … but, I’m sorry.” (Ryouta)

“That’s too bad. Well——-” (Neptune)

“Hm?” (Ryouta)

“Since you don’t to join my family. But then again, can’t we do things like what you did for Cliff and Margaret?” (Neptune)

“……..Huh?” (Ryouta)

“What I’m saying is, let’s have the Neptune Family be under the wings of the Ryouta Family.” (Neptune)


He looked at me straight in the eyes, deadpan.


“……..You serious?” (Ryouta)

“Always am.” (Neptune)


With him being serious, even his companion behind him were sulking.

They have a face of, why is Neptune putting himself down onto others, kind of look.


Which mean he is seriously considering——For real…?

Thanks for the treat.

Mellitus · 2nd November 2019 at 5:47 AM

Thanks 4 the chapter!

I found a contradiction! Did Ril and Ran just put a buff magic on Neptune? Magic? When there is a Magical Storm raging on?

    Aguinaldo "Cursed Lich" Silvestre · 2nd November 2019 at 6:37 AM

    Maybe something to do with their Hydrogen blessing?

      dragoonofinfinity · 2nd November 2019 at 1:51 PM

      Or maybe they’re abilities like the special bullets. Kinda magic, but not really? I can’t really believe that MC is the only one in the world there with some magic workaround.

goodloserk · 18th November 2019 at 4:05 AM

Wait WTF I thought the higher his mentality stat was the lower the storm would affect him?
Now you’re telling me because it’s higher it’ll affect him more?
Again what’s the point of these SS stats when it doesn’t make him OP at all?
