Chapters 1 – 4

This is merely a repost. No edits have been done nor will be done. Don’t even ask. This is just so people don’t have to search the net for chapters 1-4 which aren’t available on the original translator’s site anymore.


 

First episode ~ Supernatural Phenomenon

「Eh? Here is…」

A pure white space?

Just in front of me is a luxurious white desk and black chair.
There is no guitar type controller which was just in my hands a moment ago.

However, That doesn’t matter.
I was sucked into a tear.

While I was enjoying my game, Suddenly, A tear appeared before my eyes.

A cross-shaped tear, Which tore through the apartment.

In the tear, I had been sucked into a spiral of darkness, It seemed like a vortex.

Thereupon when I realized, I had found myself in this white space.

「A dream?」

I pinch my cheek… Ouch, It’s painful, This is not a dream?

I try shouting.

「Oi! Anybody there?」

Nobody reacts to my voice.
Also looking left and right, There is only spread out white space, Only my voice echoes in vain.
Am I the only one here?! That would be too scary!

For the time being, I should investigate the desk and chair that are just in front of me.
The desk is a thick square with the pattern of a chess board.
A miniature sculpture of a man and woman stood in every corner.

The miniatures have a fine appearance, it’s elaborate like recent figures.
They presented a man with a penis and a woman with a bulging chest.
The square desk, Including the sculpture that resides on it is cold, Like marble.
Next I examined the chair, Which had an armrest that was attached with black stones.

The backrest on the chair had countless sculpted faces.
The face sculpture of an eerie expressionless person.

It could probably be a realistic sculpture in Tokyo’s Museum of Contemporary Art.

The expressionless faces began to change one by one, I was scared.
The sudden change of expressions is a horror film-like development you want to stop!

The eerie black stone chair, Which the top and bottom were made in the shape of an elegant crown, It was gothic style. Which was attractive.
The design of the black chair itself wasn’t bad.
I try touching the expressionless face sculpture.
It feels slick but hard, Is the stone surface like steel?
Parts of the skin also have subtle irregularities.
The smooth texture of the eyebrows has also been reproduced.

It has the feel of a statue of Buddha, Since it’s eyes are closed.
Now, I move my line of sight to the square desk.

I casually look under the desk.

Hmm?

「Under the desk…」

There were trekking boot like shoes stained with blood.

「Why?」

Although it has a little blood on it, If you were barefoot would you wear them? I tie up the laces and wear the shoes.
The size is a little small, But I can wear them.

I check the feel of the shoe while tapping the front toes.
The ground that hit the tips of my toes felt like hard tile.

「Hard!」

The white floor’s surface is sturdily built.
Nevertheless such a thing doesn’t matter.
I sharply raise my line of sight.

「It doesn’t appear to be reality, Is this a dream or near-death experience?」

Such an unpleasant thing shouldn’t be…
I felt pain from the pinch, If this was a dream I would have woken up already.
Time for a reality check, Should I try to hold my breath?
I inhale with a snort.

I collect the air in my lungs and stop breathing.
Phew… I exhale little by little.

…That was about a minute? Phew that was painful.

*Puhaaaa*, *Gegogo*
It’s difficult living here.
In this white space is there oxygen and nitrogen in the air?

In a typical novel development God should appear here…

There is no reaction however, just a simple desk and chair.

How the hell is this a different world summoning, Is this just a plain kidnapping?
Then who? Is the existence that can do such a thing God? An advanced intelligent life form? An Intelligent life form that likes to play tricks?
From the 7.3 billion humans on earth… By an advanced intelligent life form… Or was I just chosen casually?

Perhaps now, I’m in a spaceship? Is my body’s dissection done?
Was it detestable, Or too unpleasant?
However, Even nursing myself with delusions is no help…
Trivial thoughts swirl around in my head.

So I take a look around the white space slowly.
Should I try taking a walk?

After walking for a while I look back.

Right in front there’s the desk and chair… I haven’t advanced.
Though I walked in the opposite direction, I haven’t advanced at all.

I expected this to some extent, What meaning does this chair have? Do I have to sit?

Accordingly, I sit down on the luxurious armchair made of blackstones.

At that instant, A little space above the desk flashed.
Oh, There was actually a reaction.

The white space flashed in an instant and the color changes.
It repeatedly pulses White, Black, Blue And grey then starting over again.

The space stopped pulsing suddenly And the eyes of the faces sculpted on the chair which I was sitting on all open their eyes simultaneously.

~Eek! Countless goggling eyes stared at me.
My spine froze, I was paralyzed in fear.
Furthermore, A change occurred in the space that was pulsing a moment ago.

The space right now split and is leaking a thin green light.
The light which leaked out became stronger and expanded the spacial tear to the left, Right, Upper And lower parts.
Before long, The green light that leaked out changed into unknown characters.
Unknown characters overflow out of it like a waterfall.

「What’s this all of a sudden?」

Moreover, It’s projected in 3D.

「AR technology? Or is it 3D?」

Finally a Japanese character appeared.

『Do you want to reincarnate into a different world?』

The three-dimensional character floated.

「Japanese… Do you want to reincarnate into a different world? So suddenly?!」

The three-dimensional character floated from above the desk downwards.

Touch to choose 『Yes』 or 『No』.

After choosing 『Yes』 the world you will reincarnate into, Is different from the world you have spent time in.
The world is in a different universe, Different dimension and Far off galaxy, Physical laws are slightly different.

The “Gods” and “The Multidimensional Worlds” have an influence on that world.

Including the local life other than you, There are Metastasis People, “Reincarnated” people exist but they are “Variants” that wander.
The language is of an unknown system, However when you reincarnate into a human form, The mind and body are reconstructed according to the different world, So rest assured.
However, Language And characters of different races will be unknown to you.

This is not a projector, These floating characters truly exist.

「This three-dimensional character…」 I stretch out a finger and touch a floating character.

I feel nothing, My finger slips through the character, It’s strange.
However selecting yes, Reincarnating to a different world, Different space, Different dimension.
That means it confirms the Multidimensional Cosmological theory?
M theory from the Super String theory’s 11 dimensions, Or is it different?

The inflation theory in which space endlessly spreads out is possible, There is also a high possibility of the existence of the bubble universe.
The universe similar to Champagne bubbles? Or something like that. After all Tegmark’s taxonomy is also possibility.

Thinking philosophically, There is also the Fictious Existence theory.
Well, There’s no helping it even if use my wide variety of trivia and modern science…
To begin with I was drawn to phenomena such as black holes that tear through physical space, Since I was drawn into this white space.

Since a gravity wave was able to be observed for the first time, A phenomena like this might be solved someday.

However, When referring to the floating character, Thick square desk And eerie chair, rather than a dream, It’s a phenomena happening in reality.
While strongly biting my lip, I taste some pain and with a small amount of understanding say “Let’s do it”.
Still, The body reconstruction… If I choose yes, What will happen to my body?

This isn’t the kind of “I think therefore I am” story.
It indicated that my memory will be maintained, However I still feel a little uneasy.

Oh, Is my present state the same as being dead?
If that’s the case, My choices are narrow…

If no is chosen just what will happen?

Only the 『Yes』 choice is explained, When 『No』 is chosen, Do I return to my original world not being dead?
If that  is so, I have nothing.

I’m unemployed, Don’t have family that will worry either, My parents died in an accident when I was small.
The Oji-Chan I’ve lived together with all this time died three years ago and now I’m alone.
After the discharge three years ago, I became a jobless NEET.
I became lazy halfway through life as the result of money, I spent every day using up my inheritance.
So, I have no regrets in this aspect, But I still have a lingering attachment to entertainment.
To be able to see Games, Movies, Trivia, Anime And manga…
I can’t read web novels, Also I must abandon things such as swimming.
Thought recently I haven’t swum, Ah if there is a river or sea, It would be alright.
No more cigarettes, Also I might not be able to eat delicious things anymore.

However there’s no helping it, Even if I’m hesitant.

I’ll remain confined in this pure white space.

I don’t know if this is a trick from God, But an unknown door has opened in right in front of me.
I have nothing, It would be too stupid not to jump into it.
I’m not an astronaut or NASA staff.
A different dimension, Different universe, Different laws of physics, I’ll be free of unemployment, With such things can I challenge an unknown world?

Still, I who is unemployed was chosen from among mankinds 7.3 billion, “Hehehe” Is it strange?

Also Reincarnated people and Metastasis people have been indicated.
Well, More importantly I have to choose something.

Is the answer yes or no? One way or another.
Even if I say that, I’ve already made my choice.
Normally I should be filled with anxiety, But honestly my sense expectation is bigger than my anxiousness.
My childish sense of excitement was quickly supressed.

The character “Reincarnation” is drifting in the air

This isn’t a novel or a game, I myself can choose…
Being confined in such a pure white space, I wonder if I have decent judgement, I want to challenge the unknown world, And experience it myself.

Gauguin’s question is also there, Something that’s amazing awaits.

I decided to go to the world of the unknown, Leaving I stood up on the spot And perform a deep bow.
Nobody may see, But I may never return.

I sat down on the eerie chair and stretched out an arm to the floating 『Yes』 character.

At the fingertip, A *Pochi* sound was made when it touched.
~Uwah I felt the touch on the three-dimensional 『Yes』 character

A soft unpleasant touch similar to silicon or konjac.

Apparently important characters have a sense of touch.
After pressing, The characters including Yes and No start to disappear as they fragment.
Immediately after the characters disappeared completely.
Also from above a new alphabet and characters system fall like a waterfall.

Character groups flow from top to bottom And produce strange color.
It’s somewhat like a matrix, it’s fantastic.
The wide variety of characters and symbols create a Fibonacci sequence and a geometrical model, Which takes the shape of an unknown fractal flower.
The form of the flower is steadily changing, Changing from a flower and creating a waveform topology in the shape of a donut like wave.

It changed shape one after another, What is this? Wondering I look thoughtlessly.
Now the waveform changed from a mysterious wave and had morphed into a finely waved object.
The object moved freely in the air repeating irregular movement, Like a UFO.

And in that instant it drew a streamline arc.

As soon as i thought it disappeared as a wave-like object, Bursting open in front of me was a three-dimensional shape for the “Left Hand” and “Right Hand”.

The hand shape shines, While the light alternately pulses pale green and pale blue.
(TN: They’re not hand shaped, They’re shaped FOR hands, Like a plug or something is shaped for plugging in cords)

Under the shape, The characters “Please insert both hands into this space” were floating.

Do I insert my palms into this? I’ll do it.

I literally put both hands into the three-dimensional shape.
I hear a *Gacha* sound, My hands fit in.
Both hands were stuck in at the wrists and are unable to be removed anymore.

From both hands wafted a smell of alcohol, With a slimy feeling.

In three-dimensional letters was “Character Scan”, Or so it displayed.

In that instant — The mouths of the expressionless faces which are on the black chair open simultaneously.
Things like black tentacles come out from the mouths.
Is it black vines from a plant? The black vines wrap around my neck and waist.
In the blink of an eye, My body is fixed to the black chair.
(TN: You know what happens now… Somebody get the burly men. TentacleXBondage)

I’m helpless as my arms are still stuck in the hand shaped space.

Since I can only move my head, I can only watch as the mouths release the black vines.
–Then the expressionless faces myriad of eyes open and jump out!
I send my regards to the eyeball oyaji.
The eyeballs drift in the air, There is no cuteness, It only makes me feel sick.
The lower part of the eyeball is connected to the eye socket of the expressionless artwork on the black chair with a blood vessel like tube, It was extremely disgusting.
Nonetheless the blood vessel like tubes seemed to pulse…
Many eyeballs have begun to drift around me, Moving up, Down, Left And right.
The pupil in the center of the eye is continually reducing the dilation, As if it was a camera zooming in.

As the pupil dilated, The pupil emitted red beams of light towards my body.

It looked like the end, I put up my guard… In the end it was just imaginary fears.
There is no apparent pain, It seems to have been scanning me.

The eyeballs begin to make a machine sound *Pipipi* and began to scan up from my feet.
The red beam wrapped around my entire body.
As expected, It’s scanning me.
According to my first delusion, I wonder if i was abducted by an advanced intelligent life form?
When the red beam which was examining me is finished it disappears, A tear generates above the desk.
A pale green light leaks out, Much like a short while ago, The light becomes a group of characters like “Numbers” and “Numerical Formula”, They fall down like an avalanche And I disappear.

This is the same as a little while ago? Rather it’s slightly different? — Japanese language begins to appear.
(TN: lol more like English language ;>)

※Forcing Epigenesis Evolution※
※Hayflick Limit Forced Cancellation Completed※
※Pluripotent Stem Cell Hyper Proficiency※In Progress※
※Total Telomere Scan Complete※
※T loop and Apoptosis Suspended※

A DNA spiral helix is displayed within a group of pale green characters.
It was a nucleic acid of high molecular biological products that was double and triple stranded.

※RNA Perfection Scan Completed※
※Catalytic Sub-unit Deployed※
※Ribosomal RNA Common Ancestor Full Scan Completed※
※Genetic Repetition※Compounding System Analysis Completed※
※DNA Perfection Scan Complete※
(TN: Dear lord…)

What? Unknown characters and symbols were displayed…
Finally Character Scan has been completed.

I had thought those characters had appeared 「Nuo」

I unconsciously made a strange noise.

It’s because a completely nude figure of me had been projected above the desk.

At the same time, The hand shaped object stuck on my wrists disappeared.
I had also been freed from the vine like tentacles And the eyeballs which scanned me had returned to their origin in the face.
They had returned to the face sculpture that was on the black stone chair.
More importantly “I”, Became free.
But “I” have been reproduced on the desk.
Although no one is around, I’m still embarrassed.
Even the palms which practiced guitar had been reproduced.
Along with the belly fat…

Uwah, The size is the same And the amount of hair is the same too.
(TN: [うはっ、あそこのサイズも同いだし、毛の量も同じだ。]I believe [not sure] he is talking about his you know what size/hair but I’m not sure…)

It’s too realistic.

Also the belly fat has been reproduced at a size that feels full of weight.
Uuu, In my school days I had nice muscles…
Well, It can’t be helped, Recently I hadn’t been swimming in the citizens pool.

But this is regrettable, In the case of a beautiful woman, I would watch more carefully.

It’s an unpleasantly perfect picture, To the extent where it has exceeded photography.

That person was another “Me”.

 


 

Episode 2 ~ Character Creation

–Hmm?

I tried to touch my newly appeared body but my hand just passes through.

Apparently it hasn’t materialized.
It’s transparent, But realistic.
It looks like AR technology that exceeds holographic.

There’s another realistic body underneath it.

『Character creation after reincarnation has begun』

Please select race.

As such, A three-dimensional character is displayed.

「It looks like a game… Excellent futuristic type… Is it my own character’s creation?」

I raise my hand to touch the floating item “Race Selection” while muttering to myself with a smile.

In that instant, The surrounding white space is transformed into a huge three-dimensional screen.

From the white space, A world abundant with nature is being generated.
As if drawing a picture on the huge campus.

Unique creatures were being created in succession, Just watching it was delightful.

A wide variety of character species gradually appear in front of my eyes.

When I extend my hand to the character and touch it there is a strange feeling and The information for the character that I touched is displayed in a window.

A realistic 3D image.

Can it still be called an image if you can feel it? Although while I think doubtfully, It moved, The character virtually walked.
~I memorize the sight of it moving in excitement.

When you move the left or right hand the window moves.

This seems to be like a Sci-Fi movie and My hand is like a controller.
Even the subtle touch of a fingertip is taken into consideration.

Even if I order it with my voice, It recognizes it properly and moves.

~Suuu This is realistic.
It surpasses the experience of Xbox One Kinect…. Even wearing the PS4 head-mounted VR display is completely exceeded by it.

Is this the feeling of VRMMO’s in novels?
There is a work which made full use of three-dimensional images in a movie but…

On the screen, Data is transferred and returned in various ways, I choose racial information to select one to examine.

Human Race, Beast, Elf, Half-Elf, Lava Khan, Dark Elf, Half-Dark Elf, Sebari, Sebupu
~Phew. Ogre, Goblin, Mermaid, Gnome, Dwarf, Ancient Dwarf, Half-Dwarf, Draconic and Lizard Man.
Ape Man, Demi human, Giant Bull, Cyclops, Sensible.
Vampire, Dhampir, Kushanan(?) [クシャナーン], Ssali [ソサリー], Lamia, High Elf etc.

So many to choose from, It will take a considerable amount of time…

I continue moving my left and right hands, confirming a racial figure.
Quickly, I move my hand.
Surprisingly there’s also a cockroach race among them.

It reminds me of a manga called Tera- something.

(TN: Terra Formars – thanks uzzi)

「Among these you can choose any race, There’s no need to worry this degree of flexibility is freedom-packed」

I choose Human race to try and The details appear.

I touch again to get more details.

And then.

※Notice※Please Read※

This appeared.

※Attention※
Racial characteristics are incorporated as new permanent skills.
The racial characteristics you are absolute, Although the racial characteristics need to be related to the race, There are a large number of choices.

Not everyone has permanent skills? What!?

The details for the Human race are displayed afterwards.

Race: Human
Average Lifespan: 48~
Racial Characteristics: Crest of Growth

Permanent Skills: None
(TN: Damn… Humans there are pretty short lived and have like no skills eh?)

※There are a variety of tribes in the Human Race.

It is mainly known as the Human Race and It’s said that there are many man-made tribes.
The territory of the Human Race Tribes are distributed over a considerably spacious area, There are Human Race Tribes even in the far distant lands.

But there also exists unexplored land that mankind doesn’t inhabit.

The Human Race who boasts the largest population, Has an aristocratic society with slavery at the core and A monarch such as an Emperor or Empress at the apex.

And when there is a war between countries, A power struggle between royalty and nobility runs rampant within, As a result a civil war develops.
And the country being destroyed because of such a situation constantly occurs.
In large Human cities, There are a number of Guilds, Guilds develop while constantly improving themselves in friendly competition.

It can be said that the Human race’s biggest advantage is it’s freedom of profession choice.

It’s said that the Human race has the favor of 【Skill God Refoto】, Perhaps because there are almost infinite number of fighting professions.

Furthermore, Depending on ones efforts, Ranking up a fighting profession is possible.
It may be correct to say that the diversity is infinite.※

According to this description, The society is similar to a middle ages from the modern times.
Nevertheless, The Skill God Refoto is the god of employment?

Anyway, For a precious different world reincarnation, Choosing the same Human race is uninteresting.
Next is the detailed information of the Goblin.

I select Goblin.
My character model is limp and Deformed.

The face resembles me a little, But it has transformed into the form of a goblin monster with an ugly face.

「Uha… Ugly… Too realistic」

Race: Goblin
Average Lifespan: 15??
Racial Characteristics: <Strangulation><Seminal Increase Beast><Intelligence Decline><Divine Protection of Todogu Gogu>

Permanent Skills:<Genealogy of Ogre><Goblin Evolution>

※Goblin-Tribes are also scattered in the continent and inhabit as much land as the Human Race.
Also Goblins with different delicate appearances, Shapes and habits exist. Basically there are a wide variety of Goblin tribes in unity. An area is ruled by a monarchy, The ruler of the area is either a Goblin Lord, Goblin King or Goblin Emperor, Depending on the rival male population.
It will probably be similar to the Warring States turbulent period when the militaristic faction develops.
In some areas the goblins, Thanks to a Hobgoblin or High Goblin, Are able to completely exterminate the Human and Demi Human races in a certain area. In some areas there also exists goblin politics.
Most of the goblin tribes believe in Demon King Todogu.
The ecosystem can be spread frequently through breeding, As it is scattered, Their greatest strength is that they can easily spread in anyplace.※

A Goblin King seems strong.
The politics of Goblins are also very interesting but…

Even so, It’s rejected due to appearance.

Next, I choose a Vampire.

When I choose, The character image changes from a Goblin appearance to a human appearance.
It looks Human in appearance, But the canine teeth are sharp and protruding.
The skin is pale and The eyes have changed to a deep red.

「Red eyes and pale face」

Moreover the belly fat has completely disappeared.
It seems that the entire body’s muscles have been enhanced.
(TN: lol making that buff character)

I try looking at the details.

Race: Vampire
Average Lifespan: ??
Racial Characteristics:<Secretive Demonic Night Race>:<Blood Sucking>:<Undying>:<Shapeshifting>:<Physical Ability Increase>:<Magic Ability

Increase>:<Blood Magic>:<Hyper Intestinal Absorption>:<Solar Flame Body>:<Light Extinguishing Body>
Permanent Skills:<True Shinso Bloodline>:<Demonic Charm Eyes>

※It’s said that the blood-sucking God Rugunado created Vampires, But it’s not for certain.
In the Human race society, Vampires are ridiculed by the Humans and demi-humans as a “Demonic Race” and Are always a target of oppression by them.

They’re not complete immortals, But as long as their weaknesses aren’t targeted, They are an immortal undead.
If you can manage to use <Blood Magic> you can use the shapeshifting ability to change your appearance.

Their greatest racial characteristic would be the physical ability and magic ability increase, Compared to the ordinary human race they have overwhelming physical abilities and magic abilities.

However, If they do not ingest blood, Plasma deficiency will lead to mummification.
When they mummification is completed, Capability declines extremely and The appearance changes entirely to that of an elderly man or woman.
However, Mummification doesn’t destroy the body.

Vampire society is formed secretly underneath human society.

『At any rate, The blood of the human race is a gourmet food… The people who intend to destroy us, We’ll baptize in sharp fangs and blood as a demonic race of darkness』
(TN: Oh no! I feel my chunni acting up again…)

With those words it’s a scary description.
But it’s a demonic race? That’s good, I like the dark feeling.

With the shapeshift ability, Can you really change your form?
To try, I touch.

※Shapeshift Ability※
Using <Blood Magic>, It can transform itself various creatures of darkness such as bats and crows, The amount of transformation creatures increase with growth

It was displayed in three-dimensional characters as expected.
I also touch the Secretive Demonic Night Race.

※Secretive Demonic Night Race※
Darkness magic can be used to absorb darkness attributed attacks.

Oh~ Darkness attribute magic absorption? Nice.

Next I try blood sucking.

※Blood Sucking※
Sucking blood has a weak hypnotic effect on the partner, Personal physical ability is slightly raised and Magic ability is slightly raised, However, After a day

passes without sucking blood, Capability slightly falls, After seven days pass without sucking blood, Mummification gradually occurs.

Oh…
Although abilities rise, Sucking blood is something like a weakness?

Next I touch hyper intestinal absorption.

※Hyper Intestinal Absorption※
The intestines consume all nutrients and neutralize toxins, Also Magic Energy absorption rises significantly.
Having their own enteric bacteria, Vampires able to adapt to all environments.

Wow, They have great intestines.

I also touch the likely weaknesses.

※Solar Flame Body※
When in contact with sunlight and ultraviolet light, It spontaneously ignites, After bathing too much, The body turns to ash. The Undying ability is unrelated.

※Light Extinguishing Body※
Upon receiving a light attribute attack, The portion which is attacked burns, If it is a powerful light, The entire body is annihilated. The Undying  ability is unrelated.

There is also a complete weakness with these characteristics.

Next I touch permanent skills to check it.

※Permanent Skills※
This is a skill that is constantly invoked.
It continues to be activated lasting for eternity.

I see, This is like a passive skill commonly found in games!

Next, I touch True Shinso Bloodline, To check it.

※True Shinso Bloodline※
Charm and Mental strength + Revision.
When the blood of virgins is acquired, The power of the True Shinso Bloodline is released, Which is said to have been produced by the Blood-sucking God Rugunado.
After releasing, Skill fusion integration is stimulated, The integration has two steps, In which Charm and spiritual value is increased and you acquire an exclusive skill.

※True Shinso Bloodline※
~Huh

The power of the True Shinso is released after drinking the blood of virgins.

To try and drink the blood of virgins seems difficult to me.
(TN: I wanted to write “Seems hard to swallow” but…)

I check the following.

※Demonic Charm Eyes※
Charms a person with a lower spiritual level or under certain conditions.
This is not absolute, When conditions overlap, Rate of success rises.
Intelligence, Charm and Mind are related.

When looking at it this way, Vampires have a lot of weaknesses, But also high abilities.

Vampire or…..

「This race seems interesting, It’s one of the candidates.」

Next, Let’s see Dhampir.

My floating three-dimensional character starts changing somewhat.
The fangs have disappeared, As well as the pale skin.

The appearance is entirely similar to a human.
As for the surplus fat disappearing and the thin muscular body, It reminds me of my high school prime.
The muscles seem to be building up the same as the vampire.

Details…

Race: Dhampir
Average Lifespan: ??
Racial Characteristics: <Secretive Demonic Night Race>:<Blood Sucking>:<Undying>:<Physical Ability Increase>:<Magic Ability Increase>:<Hyper

Intestinal Absorption>:<Light Extinguishing Body>

Permanent Skills: <True Shinso Bloodline>:<Demonic Charm Eyes>

※The Dhampir is more rare than the Vampire.
The creature that inherits the properties of both the Vampire and Human race.
It’s called a Half Vampire or Dhampir.
The restriction of blood isn’t different from a vampire.
It is immortal, But easily assimilates into the human race because it’s semi-human.
However, They’re targets of suppression and persecution by the Human race in the same way as the Vampire, They can also walk during the daytime.
Because they have the same appearance as the Human race, Their real nature is rarely discovered.※

「Oh…」

It’s like the Vampire, However shape shifting is impossible, There are also very few weak points.

Dhampir is good but…
I liked the Vampires from older movies.

But blood is a problem.
I don’t want to attack ordinary people and take their blood.
It would damage my conscience.

Or would my “Heart” change?
In order to live, I may change mentally.

I check other races while having sweet wishful thinking.

Well, After all I would like to be in contact with other people and Would also like to be special.

This is the only thing I have.

If it means to stop being human…
My free life has begun anew, I don’t mind it particularly.

I’ll live sucking blood, Psychopathic Cheers!

I choose the Dhampir with no lifespan.
And touch the OK button.

When it touches.
My realistic three-dimensional model revolves in place and moves, I make a bow.

Below it “Dhampir race was chosen” is displayed.

Also, Characters of other races which have been displayed three-dimensionally, Like a waterfall cascade down and Disappear in sequence.

While the characters cascade down, The following characters floated.

※Next please select four extra skills※

※Note※Please read※

The skill is special, Which makes it an extra skill.
It is a specific skill that is extremely rare.

Furthermore, An extra skill has an affinity.

There are times when it chains with another skill and other extra skills, Causing multiple links and Will evolve with growth, You’ll also have to learn special skills to derive variations

Because just possessing even one extra skill, Makes you a very rare existence, Please think and act accordingly.

However, The precious extra skill is only a story in  “The world of a person”
There is an infinite variety and great diversity in the world.
However since you don’t know the world of reincarnation schedule, Please learn it.
(TN: I’m lost here, Help?[ 但し、貴重なエクストラスキルも、それはあくまで“人の範囲”での話です。 千差万別、多種多様な世界。])

※There is a time limit※
※Please select the extra skill within 15 minutes※

「There’s a time limit…」

After the message, The character is displayed like a waterfall again.
A digital clock was displayed in the right corner.

And, All the skill names are displayed.

「In any case, Extra skills are pretty rare, Can I choose four from the beginning or…」

Oh, It’s for life after reincarnation, If I’ll benefit from it I’ll choose.

From the large amount of Skill names displayed in three-dimensional space, I quickly select skills I may be able to use, I chose quite a lot.

(TN: It’s amazing how many motrin I’m gonna need after this ^^)

Two minutes have passed.
Most of the contents haven’t even been seen.
There are more to choose from, But they are countless and It takes time to see details individually.
(TN: Two minutes!? That was more like 15 minutes of trying to figure out just what the hell you were saying! >_<)

「To choose from among these…」

First, Will be “Language Comprehension”, Oh details…

※Language Comprehension※
Raises thinking ability, To the point where you can understand the laws of a language and have a sense of understanding for the characters. It’s not absolute, But you have an understanding to a degree. Such as being able to write, If a vocal cord matches, You may be able to speak.

It says, Apparently.

「It’s a translation skill, I’d like to be able to speak to non-humans…」

I choose Language Comprehension as the first one.
Then, The number of extra skills displayed decreased a stroke.
Every time you choose, Candidates disappear?

Then, Is the selection the remainder from a different guy?
Then the next is, This? It’s detailed…

※Crest of Light※
An emblem of a cross is carved into a part of the body with a spirit of light. Absorbs and nullifies Light attribute magic. Also improves mental tolerance, Which prevents deep mental pollution. After it’s triggered automatically, A bell is sounded and purification is promoted. After growth, I learn an intrinsic light skill under certain fixed conditions

Oh?

Accidentally triggering it perchance?

The weakness of the light attribute, Which is one of the weaknesses of the Vampire race is eliminated, By a selection I made on a simple whim.

「I choose Crest of Light」

The moment I decide, The floating character looks like it’s tinged with light.

And the cross emblem had appeared on my left chest.

It’s a clean white cross emblem.

It’s just around the heart.
I see my status.

Oh, Incredible.
Isn’t the race name also different?

Details.

Race: Lucivault
Average Lifespan: ? ?
Racial Characteristics:<Torrent of Light Darkness>:<Blood Sucking>:<Undying>:<Increase Physical Ability>:<Increase Magic Ability>:<Hyper Intestinal Absorption>:
Permanent Skills: <True Shinso Bloodline>:<Demonic Charm Eyes>

Extra Skills: <Language Comprehension>:<Crest of Light>

※Has a completely human appearance, However it’s a new race that is descended of the Demonic Vampire race. Lucivault will become a rare endemic race. No racial relations, As soon as the body’s magic energy exceeds the tolerable amount the race will be only one step away from evolution.

The degree of race evolution changes with how the Lucivault spends this period of time.※

With light magic, It has become a new race.
Furthermore, Race evolution?

The “Light Extinguishing Body” racial characteristic disappeared.
The weakness has disappeared as expected.
Moreover I can now use the inherent light attribute magic “Crest of Light”…

Is it because it’s a new race that “Secretive Demonic Night Race” is missing…
“Torrent of Light Darkness” was newly added instead.

Promptly, I touch “Torrent of Light Darkness”.

※Torrent of Light Darkness※
It has the attributes of light and darkness in the soul and Expresses the torrent of the soul. Darkness and Light magic become practicable. Absorbs and nullifies Darkness and Light attributed attacks. Spiritual resistance slight rise, Abnormal condition resistance slight rise. However it becomes easy to influence the spirituality of light and darkness.

~Oh Light and darkness magic, It absorbs the light and darkness Wu~?
I’m also interested about the weakness like, “Easy to influence”, But oh well.

「That extra skill is amazing…」

This has changed, I wonder while touching “Blood Sucking”

※Blood Sucking※
Sucking blood has a strong hypnotic effect on partner,  Every time blood is sucked ability slightly improves.
After five days pass without sucking blood, Abilities slightly fall.
After fifteen days have passed without sucking blood, Mummification gradually begins.

Blood Sucking was also evolved, As expected.
Period without sucking blood has extended from three days to five days, The weakness has also been eased.
I had hoped that it disappeared secretly, But it doesn’t seem to go so easily.
(TN: Dude doesn’t wanna be a true vampire, then he doesn’t even wanna suck blood, Tch picky bastard might as well just be human)

But the weakness to light has disappeared.

Just extra skills.

Without complaints the second has been decided as this.

After this seven minutes have passed.

The extra skills displayed decreased.

I choose from among them.
I was interested in the name “Chain Factor”

The details are being shown.

※Chain Factor※
A chain mark is carved into the part of your body where you choose and It’s possible to shoot a chain out of the place of the mark.
By continual use of the chain it grows along with the person’s growth.
The chain’s properties are similar to “Steel” but the substance is made out of “Spirit”, Without this material the wouldn’t be able to exist.
In addition, Under the influence other skills and growth, A variety of trait changes can occur.

When it’s acquired, “Chain Handling” the fighting profession, Is also automatically acquired.

「Nothing is unable to be penetrated? This is also good」

For the third extra skill I quickly choose “Chain Factor”.
By the way, I put the chain mark on the wrist of my left arm.

Oh?

When the chain mark was added to my left wrist the cross mark on my left chest changed.

Many chains are entangled around the cross.

「It’s detailed…」

Ten minutes have passed, There is only five minutes left.
Then it came to mind, Immortal’s Magic Eye.

This seems to excel in remote manipulation, Such as intervention, Using Charm naturally aligns with this.

When I touched, The details were written.
(TN: No they weren’t, Don’t lie)

I’m interested, But it’s rejected.
As for the skills remaining…

「This is…」

The Cerebral Demon Spinal Cord Revolution details.

※Cerebral Demon Spine Revolution※
First, A separate critical period is caused indefinitely. Significantly raises intellectual power and judgement, Autonomic nervous system and Sympathetic nerve, It develops and exercises the parasympathetic nerves by rearranging them abnormally in a good way.
The benefits for the motor system in general because of the multiple corrections are enormous.
Permanent skill <Innate Magic Talent> will be added automatically.

When I touch Cerebral Demon Spine Revolution,

※Cerebral Demon Spine Revolution※
→???

??? That is, In the future, I can memorize anything I want?
??? Even if I touch there is no reaction.

It seems compatible with Physical ability enhancement.

What is this “Critical Period”?
I understand the parasympathetic nerve. When I’m stimulated it operates.
As for the autonomic nervous system, it is directly connected to the sleeping and living rhythm. It’s related to stress, Or it’s supposed to be.

With this skill, Can stress be reduced?
Going to a different world, The tough mental demand is inevitable.

Lastly, I choose this.
The time limit had been reduced to three minutes.

I touch the OK button.

When I do, My character model expands.
The status has been displayed, So I check it.

Name: Shuuya Kagari
Age: 20
Title: Different World Wanderer
Race: Lucivault
Fighting Profession: Chain Handling.
Strength: 3.0
Agility: 4.0
Stamina: 3.0
Charm: 7.0
Dexterity: 5.0
Spirit: 7.0
Luck: 3.0
Current Condition: Healthy.

Skill Status.

Acquired Skills: None

Permanent Skills: <True Shinso Bloodline>:<Demonic Charm Eyes>:<Innate Magic Talent>:<Torrent of Light Darkness>:<Blood Sucking>:<Undying>:<Increase Physical Ability>:<Increase Magic Ability>:<Hyper Intestinal Absorption>

Extra Skills: <Language Comprehension>:<Crest of Light>:<Chain Factor>:<Cerebral Demon Spine Revolution>

I finish confirming my status.

As “Innate Magic Talent” has been added, I check it.

※Innate Magic Talent※
Fighting Profession + Revision. Growth revision of overall ability. Increased magic absorption rate.

It’s that little. Growth revision? I wonder what Fighting Profession + Revision is?

※Fighting Profession + Revision※

Proximity and magic, Revision increases growth rate of two Fighting Profession systems.

Hehe, Even If I touch there’s no explanation, But this appeared.
Rather than all Fighting Professions, Is it only two?
Still, It quickly grows, I’ll learn it.

Lastly, “The size of the character model can be modified” Was displayed.

There doesn’t seem to be a time limit.
I try playing with it immediately.

Oh? Uha! Such a thing…
I can even play with that size.

An, To tamper with… This, Big D**k, This is unreasonable
I reset it to normal size
(TN:….)

「Gohon」
(TN: Gulp?)

Although nobody saw, What is this strange feeling…
To tamper with that size, What would happen?
I think it’s okay, I’d have to be pretentious.

But, For who do I bluff…

Moving my hand I increase my height and Reduce my width, After all, I return to the same height as in the beginning, Finally I increase my height slightly.

Incidentally, My original height was 179 centimeters.
Therefore, 180 Centimeters has long been desired.

With this, It’s completed.

「I’ll go with this」

I don’t know if the numerical value of Strength and Charm is high or low, But is the world similar to a game?

And the 20 year old has become…
It seems to have regenerated to 14 years old.

After everything is decided, 『Begin reincarnation?』 Is displayed three-dimensionally.

The characters “Yes” and “No” float below it.

Yes or No.

I silently touch “Yes”.

In addition, A character appears.

『After reincarnation, Please check your pocket』

The moment the character was displayed, The space tears.
A huge whirlpool of darkness is visible ahead of the tear.

「Huh, My pocket-」

My words disappears half way into the air.

It sucks me into the whirlpool of darkness, While I shrink and constrict. Also the white space all around is sucked in and disappeared.

 


 

Episode 3 – Surviving In a Different World

Trans*late*d by: Vamparis

Hmm? Something cold is touching my face…

「Water?」

I touch my cheek while opening my eyes.

「Ek, It’s pitch black…」

I pressed “Yes” just a short while ago.
Did I reincarnate into another world?

I mean, Where is this?
I’m confused and it’s pitch black.

Is this a cave?

While lying down I touch my body. [1] What I touch seems to be the clothes which I was wearing until just a little while ago, And I don’t feel pain anywhere.

Incidentally, I’m wearing a nerdy T-shirt that has “Eat Shit!” printed on the chest. [2]

My body and clothes are alright.
I’m a little relieved.

For now, I should get up.

I put my hand on the ground and stand up.

The pitch darkness in my vision doesn’t change.
What happened is the white world became a world of darkness completely afterwards.

For now, Let’s make sure.
I stretch out my hand in the darkness, There seemed to be space earlier.

Cautiously, I also move my foot out.

I pushed my foot forward carefully, While I reach my hand out in the darkness as if trying to grasp at straw.

And then, While my hand was proceeding, Something touched my left hand while I was moving it sideways.

The feeling of a chilly rock came from my fingertip.

With my left palm, I feel the surface, As if trying to read Braille. [3] It seems like a rock wall, Except, Is this a small cave here?

I walk forward while touching along the left wall.

It’s too dark and scary…

However the cold feeling from my left hand is a real rock wall.

Though it’s cold, I’m thankful.

I move forward in the darkness carefully.
While touching the wall with my left hand, I was slowly depending on it.

「Ah-!」

I unintentionally yell while my posture is broken.
The wall to the left disappeared, And my left hand soars while I fall down.

When it’s so dark how could I not fall down.
I put my hand on my knee and stand up slowly.

I’m afraid the support of the wall will disappear.

「Everything is okay, For now I have no choice but to move forward…」

I mutter hoping to deceive the world of darkness.
I pushed my foot forward to the front.

After several steps, While moving forward in the darkness my body suddenly sinks this time–

「Huh?!」

I fell and rolled down while my voice fell flat.

–Soft, Soil…

The place where I fell down seems to be like the ground with soft, Wet soil.
It seemed to be a steep slope or something.

「This is a cliff, What happened?」

However, My knee was only scraped a little this time.

I’ll be careful from now on.
I stood up from the soft ground a directed my attention to the darkness.

Light?

Looking up, There’s a strange light.

The faint light is floating in the darkness.

Small dots and something are shining overhead.
I hold my breath unintentionally.

「It’s light…」

Because the faint light was next to the wall, It’s illuminated.

A vague faint light.
This is… Moss? Is the wet moss and fungus on the damp rock glowing?

I try to touch it.

I use my fingertip to scratch at it and My fingertip was illuminated by the moss.
The moss is sticky and smells rotten.

This, Is it rotten cabbage?

It seems like some kind of slime mold type creature…
Is it a glowing moss fungus? I’ve seen that on National Geographic on TV

It’s a strange light.

Each piece of moss only has a small light, But the countless small lights gather together and produce a larger light source.
The ceiling of the cave had small points where the moss converged scattered about and it shone like the starry sky.

The starry sky is close, It seems out of place.

When my eyes got accustomed to the dimness, The entire cave became visible.
The steep unevenness of the irregular cave was displayed.

The light becomes dimmer and seems to be very faint at the inner part of the cave.
Though the brightness isn’t certain, I have no choice but to keep going to the inner part.

I walk in order to be led to the light.

The narrow cave was winding.
The rock cave is narrow to the extent that a person can just barely fit.
I moved through the narrow snake-like cave tightly while my hands touched the cold rock surface of the left and right walls.

Though there’s only a few small dim lights, It makes me relieved.
I’m relieved, However my finger still smells bad. [4]

After walking for a while the cave changed from a narrow cave into a wide cave.
The faint fluorescent glow remains on the ceiling and wall, I wasn’t hurt because it still continued to the inner part.

Then further ahead, At the end of a bend, A bright light comes into view, Appearing and disappearing

For a moment I was stunned.

「The…–Surface!?」

Finally the surface, It’s the surface Daaaa!

I can get away from this dark cave-!
I start running in joy towards the bend in the path which showed the light.

But as I approach the light I notice the situation is strange.

「What?」

I hear the sound of an intense fight.
Isn’t it the sound of a human with a thick accent’s battle cry?

The light illuminated a large shadow, And many shadows wavering on the wall. The silhouettes moved waveringly, Like a play of shadow pictures.

I look past the bend cautiously.

This is not the surface here…
It’s a spot where little green monsters were fighting against a red monster with a large body.

A dark red monster with a huge body.
There was a strong impact on the dark red monsters back.
The muscles on it’s back abnormally bulge and swell.

Seeing it feels like seeing a pregnant woman.
To give off such an impression the muscles have developed very much.

I get the feeling it’s like a red version of Superman…

A sharp pointed stone pyramid was grasped in both of the dark red monsters big hands. It fought against the little green monsters while skillfully handling

the stone pyramid.

The light of a torch which was randomly thrown on the ground projected the fight between the red and green monsters clearly.

「Guoo! Gububoo, Bugyu!」
「Run away, Dangerous」「Run away」「No way, Leave scene」[5]

I could make out the words the green monsters were speaking, But I don’t know what language the dark red monster was speaking.

The green monsters have different armor patched together on each part of their bodies, And in their hands they swing a long sword and a long spear

The dark red monster was visibly injured, But on the other hand the result was that it enraged the dark red monster…

The green monsters are certainly being killed one by one.
They were being pressured by the dark red monster.

In addition, It tore the arm off and ate one of them.
Far from being pressured, It was more like a situation of predator and prey.

The dark red monster gave a growl and swung it’s big arm around.
The sharp pointed stone grasped in it’s big hands approached the chest of a green monster. The tip of the sharp pointed stone — Was sucked into the chest

of the green monster.

The green monster screamed in pain.

But the dark red monster didn’t care. Furthermore it pierced deep into the chest, And it lodged the stone pillar into the green monsters chest while raising

it. The dark red monster moved it just as it was to it’s nose and smelled the head of the green monster.

Does it sort them by smell?

Then, The dark red monster complained about something.

「Goabofa–」

Roaring, It pulled up the sharp pointed stone. “This fellow doesn’t accommodate” Throwing as though it’s a German.

It threw the body away up into the air.

The dark red monster kept searching for more prey, Moving it’s large white eyeball. The large eyeball immediately caught sight of a green monster that was

resisting.
When the dark red monster found convenient prey it opened it’s mouth wide and gave another roar, Jumping instantly–

Again it pierced the sharp stone pyramid into the abdomen of the green monster. The stabbed green monster was still alive and hit the dark red monsters

large jowl, Screaming and struggling desperately.

However, The desperate resistance was futile…

The dark red monster bent it’s large muscular arm and raised the green monster over it’s head just like a little while ago.

The muscles in it’s large arm give off the feeling that it’s a lump of rough rocks crowded together.
It’s amazing in close combat.

The dark red monster moved the green head to it’s huge mouth while the blood dripped from the green monster and streamed down the muscular arm.
After smelling the head, Surprisingly– It bit into the green head.

While it’s devouring, The sound of bones breaking resounds to the place where I’m hiding.

This is dangerous…
Even if I run away, Can I make my way back through the dark path?

But– I want that torch.
Ahead the cave probably still continues, Though I’m afraid to approach the monster, But if I take flight and run…

If I take the torch and dash left, I feel like I could pass through.

The monster should take care of the other monsters.

But if it’s a dead-end, I’m done for
While in the middle of thinking about this, The dark red monster moved.

Ha, Again, The dark red monster is skewering a green monster…

It seems it will come to this place soon.

I pray that the path continues and decide to run.

*Goku* I swallow my saliva.
I send out a faint voice 「Alright」 It’s short and enthusiastic, While I rush up to the spot where the monsters are fighting–.

「What?」 「Is it?」 「Human」 「Bugoooo」

The first to notice me were several green monsters.

However, The dark red monster ignored me.
Or perhaps, It didn’t even notice me.

Yes, A chance.

The dark red monster kept attacking the green monsters.
The green monsters are being killed one by one without a chance to breathe.

I picked up the torch which fell by chance and escape into the depths.

Yesssss, Success!

I run to the path on the left, And dash.

Where the path continues, The ground is uneven and is hard to walk on.
However, The matter is, He who fights and runs away may live to fight another day, I will run away now!

Running desperately I escaped.

I don’t want to meet that sort of huge dark red figure.
Therefore I ran, And I also ran up a few slopes.

I kept running, Enough that the fire of the torch which was blazing almost went out.

Fortunately where I ran the cave continued ahead. When I passed through the steep uneven surface, It turned into a downward slanted slope.

I’m still worried about behind.
I go down the slope without breaking my pace.

I ran for about thirty minutes?

I notice that I’m not out of breath at all, Even though I was running.

「Oh?」

While uttering a sound I stopped my foot while thinking of this question.

I look toward the back and confirm the monsters didn’t give chase.
I decided to confirm myself some other time.

The fire of the torch I have in my hand still burns waveringly.
The light of the torch projects my shadow to the wall of the cave.

A huge shadow was created.

Hii– In that instant I was scared by the shadow moving.

Foolish.

But, This stamina that doesn’t come from my heart…
Okay, I’m not a human being.
The new race “Lucivault” Is the name for my race.

「Oh…」

Now, I remember.

Okay, The floating character I saw before reincarnating said to look in my pocket.

I check my pocket right away.
Several coins were on a piece of folded paper in my pocket.
I open the folded paper and take a look

□■□■

The area where you stand now should be a zone called Ose Beria prairie, Griffon Hill, Or a Dragon Cliff.

□■□■

–Hmm, Is it a grassy plain, A hill, A cliff?
I’m stunned at the sudden incorrect information, But I was patient and kept reading

□■□■

There is 【Royal Capital Gromhim】 of 【Ose Beria Kingdom】To the south.
There is 【Labyrinth City Pernette】 To the east.
There is 【Llsack City】 To the west.

If this is different, It’s a singular transfer failure phenomenon.

As some amount of errors are unavoidable, Thank you for your understanding
This is the same as with the universe…
(TN: It’s saying that if he wasn’t in a prairie/cliff/hill it was a failure during his transfer, And some amount of errors are unavoidable, This holds true about the

universe as well)

There are several coins, Expect three silver coins and three large copper coins.
Generally, The currency in that area is divided into Grain Iron < Iron Coin < Small Copper < Large Copper < Silver Coin < Gold Coin < White Gold Coin <

Large White Gold Coin

Ten Small Coppers = One Large Copper.
Ten Large Coppers = One Silver Coin.
Ten Silver Coins = One Gold Coin.
Ten Gold Coins = One White Gold Coin.

And, One hundred White Gold Coins = One Large White Gold Coin.

The rough currency value should be such.
Incidentally, It’s possible the coin is not usable in distant remote areas, So please be careful.

□■□■

This, Is this Large Copper thing 1,000 Yen?
Then, One Silver Coin is 10,000 Yen.
If so, The money I have on hand is 33,000 Yen.

That Large White Gold Coin is in a different figure…
Because it’s a hypothesis, It could be completely different too.

In addition I take a look at the sentence under the character.

□■□■

Finally, There is a small privilege.

The ability to see the Status and Skill Status of oneself by speaking or silently speaking, To see status to some extent of an approximation is a privilege.

This gives an explanation of simple skills and the like, But because this isn’t a skill it only gives brief descriptions.
Because other people cannot see the screen of the simple status display, There’s no need to worry.

Because your brain is just showing it to you as a simple status display.

In which case, Have a good life
By the way, When the last character is read this paper automatically–

□■□■

At that moment when I had finished reading, The paper burnt with a *boom* instantly.

「Nuo!?」

Preparing cheap tricks like a spy movie…
This experience…

「Is the God who let me reincarnate looking? Then answer me!」

I raised my voice uncomfortably.
But there was no answer, And my voice echoes through the cave.

Is there no reaction to anything?
It prepared the white space, And why was it me?

Oh, There’s no helping it even if I think about it now.
It was me who chose yes for my own reincarnation.

“God is a great author, And human beings are only the Directors”

What a troublesome phrase.

I grasp one of the Copper Coins in my pocket in anger while grumbling that phrase, Forcefully manipulating my emotions.

I turn the Copper Coin with my thumb and flip it into the air.
I catch the coin, Is it heads or tails? I check the coin.

Heads?

I bring it closer to the fire and observe it carefully while pinching it with my index finger.

It’s a rough make, But the outline has been made to look like a persons face.
A horse like shape is drawn on the back.

I move my gaze to my arm while checking the coin.

My gaze lands on a watch.

「–Oh」

That reminds me, I completely forgot about the existence of my watch.

The second hand is moving properly.
When I push the small button; Dazzling light, Like a light I haven’t seen in a long time.

「Torch…」

I didn’t need to take the torch so desperately…

Because this watch is shock-resistant, Waterproof and solar powered, It should work in this world, The watch says 8:00AM earth time.

Even if I understand earth time it’s worthless…

~Sigh, If the passage of time is similar, Then shouldn’t I be able to use it to measure time?
Besides, More than anything I’m glad about this light.

And, Let’s pray that this shiny coin is useful someday.

「But can I really make it to the area where humankind is…」

This is the underground world, Furthermore there are an enormous number of monsters.
The burned paper said there was a Labyrinth City to the east but….

That place is surely different than what it said.
This, Seems like a failure
It was written that there was a singular transfer failure phenomenon, However…

A singular point, Was it the phenomenon that happened in the black hole?
I don’t understand it in detail, Still…

The coordinates of the spot to appear from reincarnation were messed up?
I mean, Why let me reincarnate in the area after the location failure…

It’s too different from the different world life I imagined.

Oh, I should be happy I didn’t get transferred to a famous stick RPG like in stone and get annihilated.[6]

「I don’t know the way, And there’s no map either」

The anger I controlled earlier rises and boils with my doubts.

However, The dark cave exists as a reality, So I am patient.

Haa…
First of all, I should look for something I can do.

Then I remember the characters “There is a privilege”.

I decided to check my status.

「Status」

While speaking in my mind a translucent screen appeared in front of my eyes.

Name: Shuuya ・Kagari
Age: 20
Title: Drifter of Another World
Race: Lucivault
Fighting Profession: Chain Handler
Strength 3.0
Agility 4.0
Endurance 3.0
Charm 7.0
Dexterity 5.0
Spirit 7.0
Luck 3.0
Current Status: Calm

「Ohhhh, A strange screen is displayed…」

The translucent status screen is like a realistic game.

I wonder, Do other people really not see the glowing characters?

It was written on the burnt paper that it was easy to understand and projected by my brain.

During reincarnation was my brain tampered with?
I had a body reconstruction…

Oh well, Anyway, Now I am living and have a proper consciousness.

I then touch the character displayed on the status screen.

It’s displaying I have the title of Drifter of Another World.

I touch to see more details.

※Drifter of Another World※
The title is carved into the soul which crosses dimensions from another world, The space-time attribute can be obtained.

The space-time attribute… I don’t understand it.

First, I’ll give priority to what I understand.

「Skill Status」

Acquired Skills: None

Permanent Skills: <True Shinso Bloodline>:<Demonic Charm Eyes>:<Innate Demonic Aptitude>:<Torrent of Light Darkness>:<Blood

Sucking>:<Undying>:<Increased Physical Ability>:<Increased Magical Ability>:<Hyper Intestinal Absorption>

Extra Skills:<Language Comprehension>:<Crest of Light>:<Chain Factor>:<Cerebral Demon Spine Revolution>

It was displayed after all.

Physical Ability Increased and Magical Ability Increased.
Naturally I don’t understand the magic, Magic is on the back burner

In that respect, I may be able to understand Physical Ability easily.
Though I felt I was running at full strength a short while ago, I felt this abnormal stamina, And I’m not short of breath at all, Instead my body feels lighter.

There’s a possibility that the sun and gravity in this different world are different from Earth…
If it is not so, And I assume the gravity is almost the same as Earth, There is a possibility that I obtained the physical ability of the Vampire lineage.

I roll up my T-shirt and check my body.

My arm and pectoral muscles have become built and larger, And my abs are ripped too.
But it doesn’t give off the rough muscular feeling of a body builder.

My upper arm is certainly more muscular and flexible than before.
Sufficient lean muscles.

「I should test something」

I put the torch against a rock crag and look for an area that doesn’t have any stones.
There were fist sized stones, Fallen on the ground.

Picking it up, I throw it at the wall–.

–The stone hits the wall.
Though it was a casual throw And the dull *thwack* of a blunt object sounds.
The stone I threw broke and part of it had sank into the rock wall.

「Ha, Incredible!」

A stone becomes a powerful weapon.
It seems Increased Physical Ability isn’t ordinary

Because I don’t have a weapon now, I’ll just take this stone.
It’ll be usable in an emergency, Like the monster from a little while ago.

I pick up another stone and drop it into my left pocket.
I decide to confirm a skill once again, Whether other things can become weapons.

 


[1] Not that kinda novel guys ;)…. maybe
[2] Apparently it’s “クソ食らえ” which apparently means “Eat Shit”, I looked it up and it seems to be a well known T-shirt design in Japan, Google “Kuso Kurae” for more info.
[3] Written language for blind people, Letters are raised dots for blind people to touch.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Braille
[4] When he touched the fungus it made his finger smell bad
[5] Japanese is hard when you have animu level understanding… And Japanese intentionally made hard is even harder…
[6] I believe this is a reference, But I have no idea \_(0_0)_/

 


 

Episode 4 ~ Playing with Chains

「Skill Status」

A list of skills is displayed.
Among them I try to touch <Chain Factor> to check it.

※Chain Factor※
→???Skill

Touching Chain Factor, I try to see the details.

※Chain Factor※
Chain Factor’s effect evolves in conjunction with personal growth and other skills.
This may cause a mutation in the nature of <Chain>

Mutation in the nature, How? While thinking of this question, I repeatedly touched the displayed character [1] with my finger, Though there was no further description.

Oh well, I have no choice but to comprehend it myself little by little.
? ? ? Appeared with the skill, Do I have to learn it?

If that’s the case, Is it similar to the skill system in a game?
It’s very puzzling, But let’s try it.

I nodded, Staring at the chain mark engraved on my left wrist.

「Try!」

The Status screen is turned off.

I held out my left hand– and the <Chain> which I prayed for shot out!

I heard a shooting sound, And the <Chain> really shot out from the chain mark on my left wrist,

The <Chain>, Which extended out, Pierced the ground about two meters ahead.

This “Chain” seems to be sturdy.
It really appeared from the mark engraved on my skin.

–Strange.

It feels like it’s made of several iron threads twined around into steel. [2]

While looking at the extended chain I developed such an impression…

Even while pulling on the chain that came from my left hand, The tip that’s stuck in the ground won’t return

「Oi, Oii.」

The chain disappears instantly with a thought of “Disappear”.

「Fuu」

It’s good it disappeared, Being stuck in the ground like that, I wouldn’t have been able to get away…

How ironic.
Still, The chain is usable.

Can it be shot according to image?
I imagine a short distance… And the chain soaring.

The distance, Measuring by eye is about ten meters? It stopped.
(10 meter = 29-ish feet)

「It’s like this in the beginning?」

I thought it would have flew further…
Because of the short distance I’m a little disappointed.
However, While repeatedly shooting and retracting the chain I spontaneously smile.

Good — The initial velocity of the chain.
The initial velocity is disgustingly fast, This is good.

I keep producing the chain while turning my hand all around.

Little by little, The range seems to be extending slowly. Though it seems to only have the specifications to fly straight.

Hm? Did the mark of “Chain Factor” change? It might be my imagination…

「Oh, The range increased and the speed rose, When using it the limit grows」

With the physical ability of this chain I could fight with that monster from a while ago.
After I confirmed the effectiveness of my new weapon my energy grew excited.

I took the torch from the wall and started walking step by step into the darkness.

Even with a torch the eerie open cave doesn’t change. The moss and mushroom that was still shining slightly on the ceiling of the cave was visible.

Eh?

While walking, I confirmed the ceiling had become lower. The light is close, But does the cave have the same atmosphere as a while ago? There’s no wind, But the gloomy, Humid air drifts.

The damp air fills my lungs. It gave me a feeling sort of like “Gloomy”.

The gloomy damp cave leads to a slanting bottom. The dark world spread out, And the mouth of the abyss seemed gapingly open.

Quite the entrance to the underworld. It feels as if it’s inviting me.

 

「I have no choice but to advance first…」

I muttered with a small voice.
I continued using the “Chain” to wipe the uneasiness from my heart.

The chain pierces the horizontal wall and ceiling each time.

Chain, Chain, Chain, Chain, Chain, Chain, Chain, Chain — Chain.
(TN: Grinding like a boss)

Every time I advance the chain is being increased.

「Haha」

I laughed for the first time in this different world.

At any rate, It’s fun with this <Chain>.

I think I became too anxious, That’s not to say that I was going insane. Because of the power of the chain for my first strange ability, It’s slightly fun

Fuhahaha, Mr. Chain, You’re usable aren’t you!

「This is great Haha」

Is this state of mind because of the circumstances or insanity, I wonder?

Nevertheless, I get distracted from these feelings and, Oh the <Chain>.

I pull the chain and dangle while it’s sticking into the low ceiling, And use the chain like a swing.

I returned to having a child-like mind and I was enjoying myself.

While doing such a thing intently, I walked through the cave with stone debris and intense irregularities scattered underfoot.

I aim at the ceiling again and extend the chain.

…Hey.

The chain only shoots through space and doesn’t stick, Is there no ceiling?

It appears the ceiling turned into a large space somehow. The shining mushrooms have also quietly disappeared from the area.

My feet suddenly feel heavy and I stop walking.

I use the torch to cast light on my surroundings.

I do it quickly and anxiously. I think it’s a very large place that my chain runs out of length, Stopping me from being able to play with it.

In such a situation, Distracting myself with even trivial things is a good thing.

Outside the ring of light illuminating my step…
The dark space seems to stretch endlessly in all directions.

I walk with grave steps.

In front, The dark cave spreads out… Eerie quietness and darkness haunted the place. My heartbeat and the sound of the torch burning echo slightly.

Haa, This kind of place…
You could say the degree of difficulty was raised too high suddenly.

Staring at the eerie cave, I slightly regret for a short while.

So frustrating, I have the power of a new race.

I gather my courage and push forward with grave steps. But the thin mask of courage fades away immediately.

The vast space of darkness is dominated by an eerie silence. The freezing darkness assaults me and wraps everything entirely.

In this dark space, It feels like my entire body is being swallowed.

I fall into such a ridiculous illusion. Just in the presence of darkness, I feel an intimidating air, As if from a powerful monster.

The pleasantness from earlier seems to have disappeared completely. Phew… To be honest I’m afraid, I hope there is nothing.

I also turn on the light from my watch, It made it brighter… Damn, Since I can’t see the sun, I can’t charge it and I have no idea when I’ll be able to get out of this cave, I’ll try not to use the light from my watch as much as possible.

I’ll endure with the torch.

I think I have a miserable and frightened expression on my face right now.

I’m alone in such darkness. Furthermore I’m in a strange looking different world.

It’s exceedingly scary. I have no idea where a monster might come from and it’s terrifying!

In the solitude of my heart, I shouted for help.

Is this the feeling of my SAN value decreasing?
(TN: Sanity level)

Also the torch’s shaking and flickering contributes to anxiety, Because of the solitude I seem to be going through intense emotional ups and downs.

Nevertheless my walking pace isn’t reduce, I walk earnestly. The large space seemed to have become smaller gradually, I can see the rock surface on both sides.

I advance straight through there. The rock surface seems to have disappeared and a few diverging caves seems to appear.

「Which cave do I continue into…」

There was a big cave to the right and left, But I decided to walk straight without entering them.

I advance through the wide space.

Then – – From where I just passed I heard a strange noise. Rustling like *Juroro*

I get an unpleasant feeling–

Turning around I see the forms of weird monsters. Monsters springing out from holes to the right and left.

My spine freezes unconsciously.

「Haa, What on earth is this」

Holding up the torch carefully, I see two long tubes in the shape of a V.

「Eh? That’s not a tube?」

What seemed to be a tube was a group of eyes.
The group of eyes is actually a compound eye, Like a fly or dragonfly’s eyeballs.
(TN: Don’t ask me how he got a tube from that)

Ugh, Gross.

The “Eyeballs” densely packed together form something like an extended vertical V-shaped tube, It was moving here and there with a *Giyoro* *Giyoro*
(TN: \_(0_0)_/ )

There’s certainly a lot of eyeballs packed together, And they move.

The collection of creepy eyeballs stares at me at one point…

Under the V-shaped eyeball tube, It has a trunk like body similar to a slug and a caterpillar, And it made a *Nyururu*. And it had many legs like a centipede connected under the body.

There’s the trunk like body, And legs.

Seems like a slug and a centipede were combined.

The centipede made a *Kasakasa Juroro* … Weird noise while it sprang out of the hole.

It seemed to have seen me as food and came near.

Uhee, I hate it. Though it’s movement is slow. It’s appearance is weird, And the Centipede’s movement speed is slow.

Phew, I’m a little relieved. I might be able to defeat this.

I put the torch down, Taking the stone in my pocket, I aim and throw.

The stone hits the centipede in the eye. With a *Bushi*, The strange sound of an eyeball being destroyed is echoed.

Good, This feels good.

I continue throwing successively. When several eyeballs were crushed by the stone-throwing, One side of the V-shaped tube of the eyeballs collapsed and it stopped moving.

Is it dead?

But such centipedes appear one after another. The weird *Jurororo* sound kept increasing.

All together, I’ll kill them. Fortunately, There’s countless stones and rocks which collapsed here.

「Hyah!」
(TN: Sound of him exhaling while throwing)

There’s a strange tension, But I pay no attention to it. I pick up a rolling stone at my feet and send it hurling. [4]

I pick up and throw, I pick up and throw, Because everything is going fine I maintain the strange atmosphere and keep throwing.

*Bushi Bushi Bushi*, The strange sound of collapsing echoed through the area. Midway I remember I can use <Chain>. Making the chain extend, I pierce through to kill the centipede. A hole appeared on the centipede, And white bodily fluids started to spread around where it was crushed. Lots of corpses start piling up.

They stopped coming out of the holes on the left and right already?

Then, Feeling a little relieved–.

※Pikon※※<Throwing> Skill Acquired※

Did that sound come from my mind?

The sound echoed inside my mind in a high-pitched tone and The red characters ※<Throwing> Skill Acquired※ were displayed.

It was a strangely pleasant sound. The strange sound I heard in my head… Was the sound of a skill acquisition.

It really feels like a game, But it’s real. In my previous world, It would certainly be counted as an illusion and an auditory hallucination.

But here it’s different.

The feeling of my actions earlier comes back, And is sharpened.

Oh, This feeling…

I feel like I’ve always known the <Throwing> “Skill”, And I know the movements. If that’s a way to put it…

「It’s a strange feeling」

As for the skill for throwing stones, Is it because I killed a considerable amount of centipedes?

I have lingering thoughts about it.

「Gururu」 「Garuugau」 「Shuu」

This time it’s the sound of an animal from the front and back.

Animal? The sound of an animal howling echoes from the front. The corpses of the dead centipede seemed to have attracted animals to come and eat the dead flesh.

The animals voice from behind seems to have been aimed at me.

I pick up an extra stone and stuff it into my pocket.

I made up my mind and turned around toward the back.

One eye appeared in the darkness, And another eye appeared a little later. The pair of eyes shined.

「Gururuu」 「Shuaa」

The animal voices and shining eyes kept increasing.

…The light of the torch illuminated the animal’s form.

The figure was of a wolf or a dog, Like a small dog in stature. However it’s mouth stretched sideways strangely. Like the length of a ruler could enter, And it revealed countless saw-like teeth in it’s strange mouth.
(TN: Imagine a dog with an alligator mouth… or a crocodog…)

Saliva drips from it’s teeth. Dangerous, I wanna escape…

However, Even if I run away, It’s movement seems fast because it’s a small dog, And there’s three of them. I hear the centipedes corpse being chewed on behind me.

I have no choice but to take the initiative with a stone here. — Ugh, Phew, I throw it like a javelin. However, because of the effects of the <Throwing> skill, There was no wasted movements in the snap throw.
(TN: I don’t know much about baseball, But I believe this is a throw they use in baseball?)

Leaving my hand smoothly, It flies. The stone hit the first dog with the torn mouth directly in the head.

One and two.

Unlike the time the first slug was knocked down, It feels like I’ve become a professional dart player and it seems like I’ve become a professional baseball player. Of course, It’s not because I’m a professional player, Though it feels that way because of the exquisite control in the flexible wrist snap.
(TN: Slug = Centipede)

Continuing, It hit the body of the dog next to it.

How did that happen? It was to the extent where it was able to penetrate.

Unconsciously, I took the natural posture. (TN: For throwing)
Because of the effects of the <Throw> skill.

The dog with the torn mouth which was hit on the head collapsed to the ground immediately. And the dog with the torn mouth which was hit on the body trembled and groaned while falling down.

I succeeded in defeating two monsters. There is only one remaining. I had a short moment of joy.

The dog with the torn mouth arrived right beside me immediately.

Opening the torn mouth widely to bite me, It showed it’s blade-like saw teeth which piled up from the roof of it’s mouth to it’s snout.

That’s dangerous!

I quickly swing my arm.

I moved my right arm to prevent the saw teeth in it’s torn mouth, And to shake the dog off.

The rough saw teeth directly hit my right arm intensely which I shook. It deeply cut from my right arm’s wrist to my elbow.

Blood sprayed.

Painfullll!

However, The dog with the torn mouth which hit my arm was blown off to the side and crashed into the wall, Falling to the ground. Leaving the small body twitching.

The dog with the torn mouth stopped moving, As it died.

「Shit! Too much pain!」

My cut arm throbbed. After letting out a pain-filled voice I picked up the torch and ran away to the depths. It’s unrelated that I avoided the dead mouth dog.

「Painfulll!」

I let out a weird cry while running. I clenched my teeth to endure the pain.

What, I’m a vampire… That was scary and painful, Great.

I was prepared to some degree, But pain is still pain. Oh, Whatever, It was painful… But it’s not painful anymore?

The wound was already gone by the time I looked at the arm I felt pain in. Swinging my arm-.

「It’s not painful…」

Blood is still there.

「Wow…」

Taking back what I just said, This Undying ability is great.

Thinking carefully, Earlier, Although I only swung my arm the dog was blown off and died.

And I’m not short of breath or out of stamina, Even after running all this way. The Vampire lineage is too awesome.

Hyuhoo

Nevertheless, I suffered a few wounds, And my mental state… Is that of an unemployed soft-hearted Japanese.

Just in case, I’ll take a stone.

「…Hey, Its…」

After thinking in that way, Two dogs with torn mouths, Just like a little while ago appeared and blocked the way.

「Garuruu!」 「GuuuGau!」

In a hurry I stop running and promptly throw the torch I had at the dog with a torn mouth.

Simultaneously, The dog with the torn mouth sprang forward.

「Yaba!」

At the moment when I was going to try to escape to the rear and run–.

※Extra Skill※Cerebral Demon Spine Revolution derivative skill condition was satisfied※
※Pikon※ Acquired Skill <Cerebral Spinal Demon Speed> Invoked※

When the words sounded in my mind–.
<Cerebral Spinal Demon Speed> Is displayed in red in the top left corner of my vision.

Jumping back almost instantly, I feel the throbbing pain in my mind while simultaneously understanding the skill.

On the one hand, The dog with the torn mouth which attacked, Crashed head first into the ground, Fracturing it’s teeth and causing it’s head to twitch while it swayed.

「My head hurts, But–, I was able to avoid it. Is my abnormal speed due to a skill?」

I under sand the skill, But I haven’t become accustomed to it yet.
The unsteady dog slightly moves.

I have no time to feel the headache, Now is a chance. Because there’s a time limit to the speed provided by this skill, I must hurry.

I direct my left hand towards the dog with the torn mouth and take aim.

「Ikeeeee」

At the same time as my shout, The <Chain> simultaneously shot from the chain mark on my left wrist.

The body of dog with the torn mouth trembled repeatedly, Bearing it’s broken fangs, Opening it’s mouth wide.

In the mouth, My <Chain> was drawn in.

The chain pierced the roof of the dog’s mouth. Penetrating the brain and continuing straight. Shaking and rotating the dog’s body.

The brain matter scattered all over the surroundings, While the head tore off mid-air and flew somewhere.

–Still not finished. I run

In the state where the chain is extended straight, I began running towards the other dog with the torn mouth.

I was able to understand the effect of the skill, But also, Was able to actually experience it.

The <Cerebral Spinal Demon Speed> skill which I acquired a short while ago is able to raise my speed abnormally.

Approaching the dog with a torn mouth in an instant, I used the momentum of running. Kicking the dog with a torn mouth in the belly like a soccer ball.

Due to the force of the kick, The body of the dog caved into the shape of the character ‘He’ (の).
(TN: I believe that’s it…)

The body of the dog with the torn mouth floated in the air for a little while, While letting out a voice that sounded like a small scream. At the same time, My right arm clutched the stone from above, With all my strength, I released it from my hand vertically.

The fist sized stone sank into the head of the dog with the torn mouth. And the head of the dog collapsed completely. Thereupon <Cerebral Spinal Demon Speed> released automatically.

「That skill, Incredible…」

An effect still remained, The thoughts in my mind became strangely clear…

While having clear thoughts, I felt heat coming from inside my head. The heat gradually became more intense. As I discovered that it’s being spread to the back of my neck and body. It rapidly spread to my spine from my head, It felt like the bone was charged with heat.

Unpleasant… Rather the bone…

「More, Inside… It’s hotter inside…」

It’s a strange feeling…
The image of the bloodstream where the blood vessel was, Boiling hot energetically until it affected the sensitive nerve that connected the brain and the spine appeared in my head.

At first I had a terrible headache, But now my body aches. Anew, My body is being changed…

While digesting such a strange feeling, I stare at both hands and think deeply about the changes happening to my body.
