Translating Japanese Web Novels to English

GC V1C19

Hi guys! Here’s a GC chapter in advance. The chapters released today will be the last until possibly Monday. I’m going for my LASIK appointment tomorrow and if all goes well the op as well so I won’t be straining my eyes to translate for a few days at least :)

(019) Confirming the agreement before the labyrinth

Translator: Tseirp

For the time being, we bought rations and potions from the general store before heading to the labyrinth.

“By the way, how many labyrinth does this town have?”

“Yes, there’s the Beginner Labyrinth, Intermediate Labyrinth, and Advanced Labyrinth. If it’s us, I believe we can sufficiently pass through the Intermediate Labyrinth.”

“Then, shall we go to the Intermediate Labyrinth?”


With kobolds as opponents, it would soon be too difficult to level up.


“No, I believe it is better if master clears the Beginner Labyrinth first. There is a boss room on the 10th floor of the Beginner Labyrinth and all members of the party who defeats the boss for the first time will obtain benefits.”


Labyrinth clear bonus huh. It really feels like a game.


“Haru, have you defeated the boss before?”

“Yes. When I defeated it, I obtained the skill 「Speed Increase (Minor)」”

“Oh, so I can get skills. Let’s do that then.”


We headed for the Beginner Labyrinth that we dived into just yesterday.

Before that, my job has changed drastically so I checked my status first.


“Status open.”

Yup, compared to when I just began, it’s like the moon and a soft-shelled turtle, a world of difference.


“By the way, I’m curious about Haru’s status.”

“You can just view it?”

“Eh? Other people’s status can be easily seen?”

“As long as it is a companion’s status and you have permission. Please call out status open with the intended person’s name.”

“Okay, Haurvatat, status open.”

Uwa, so strong.

She falls short of me with my 「Job Setting」 skill but she’s way stronger than I was before I killed that 2 thieves.


“So there’s a job called a Beast Swordsman.”

“Beast Swordsman is a higher job only available to Swordsmen that are also beastmen. However, only a Beastman Priest can change my job for me so I won’t be able to become a Beast Swordsman. Since there are but a few Beastman Priest in the world.”


Oh, I see … Can’t my 「Job Modification」 skill do it?

Ah, I can easily do it.

Seems like I can modify the job of my companions. So the magic attack of a Beast Swordsman is 0. In exchange, they have an amazing 110 speed even at Lv1.

So it doesn’t seem like she lied about it being a higher job.

I wonder if I can modify the job of those who are not my companions as well … I’ll have to try it next time. If it’s possible, the battle with the Pugilist would be a breeze, no, I would be invincible in PvP.


“Haru, shall we raise your Beast Swordsman level?”

“I would like to do so if it’s possible.”

“I see, then, please promise me that you will not scream out in shock and check your status.”


Seeing is believing.

Without even making a puzzled face, Haru did as she was told and called out status open.

When she did that, as expected even the poker-faced Haru also had her eyes wide open.


“Master, this…”

“Well, think of it as my special ability. Still, it’s rather unusual right?”

” … Normally, job modification can only be carried out by a Priest and only in a holy land. I’ve never heard of a skill that can change job in an instant outside a holy land.”

“In other words, it’s better that nobody else knows about this skill.”

“Yes, there’s a possibility that you would be exploited.”


I fell into deep thought. If a person commits a great crime, they would be converted into a Thief, Bandit or Pirate job and would not be able to enter the town with regular means.

We still do not know how the thieves and bandit entered the labyrinth within the town.

However, using my skill, I can return them to a job apart from the criminal jobs of Thief and Bandit.


“I have other things that I have not told Haru but we’ll leave that for after the labyrinth.”

“I understand. Also, master, I am terribly sorry but at Lv1, I am not able to fully display my strength. Could we set it such that the monster subjugation experience points are equally split among us for a while?”

“The proportion of experience points?”

“Yes. I previously mentioned that, normally, when a monster is defeated, the person who deals the final blow will get the experience points. However, in a party setting, the party leader can decide on the allocation of the experience points. There are 2 types, the person who deals the final blow takes all, or takes 50% and the other party members equally split the remaining 50%.”


Ah, it’s true that within Haru’s status there was the 「Leader」 title and the 「Experience Point Distribution」 skill. So it’s a skill that is obtained via title?


“In other words, if I defeat a goblin and obtains 10 experience points, it will be split into 5 and 5?”


I don’t actually know that goblins give 10 experience points. It’s just an example.


“No, in that scenario, master will first receive 5 experience points and of the remaining 5, 2.5 will go to master and 2.5 will go to me.”


I don’t know if experience points can be split below 1 but so that’s how it works.

In other words, for the equal split system, the person who defeats the monster gets 3/4 and the other person gets 1/4.
“I see … Hmm~ In exchange, I want to defeat the monsters from the 1st floor to the 3rd floor. I believe I will be able to defeat them with a single attack. Is that alright?”

“Yes, of course. I believe the current master can defeat all the monsters with a single hit.”



Author’s Note:

The difference between 20x experience point acquisition and 1/20 required experience points.

They seem the same but are completely different, I believe everyone know by now.

(TL: In other words, if he defeats the monsters, taking his scenario for example, instead of 10 exp he gets 200 exp, he takes 150 exp and Haru takes 50 exp. So his cheat works on his party members as well in a way. Interesting way the author took into account for the MC’s companions.)

Quick Update


  1. Foguiho

    Thanks for the chapter, revenge will be soooo sweet

  2. kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  3. Neko-Tan

    Lol. So the author deal with GC situation for haru by set up distribution system. Nice one, if the GC work out with this system then the whole thing is clear up

    • Yea quite ingenious

    • Still, I don’t think that the 1/20 xp req will affect the party members, although I can’t remember if it has been mentioned yet whether or not more jobs = slower leveling.

      • Birdy

        I decided to try out machine translating and just reached the end of volume two, and it doesn’t really seem to be the case. However, different jobs do require different experience to level up. Can’t wait till you guys find out about Gambler.

      • h2h1z

        It can’t do anythin for party members but it will still make the exp he get basicly x 20 (not that he would be getting x15 for any kills in a party)

        • They’ll explain how the 1/20 helps in a later chapter … Next chapter or next next chapter i think

  4. accountmadeforants

    Well then, that’s an even more straightforward solution than the “last hit EXP” one I expected.

  5. kelvin

    thanks for the chapter! hopefully stronger faster to defeat the noble

  6. 9wyd10n

    Anyone know if the Commoner lvl counter stop is at 15 and apprentice swordsman is and 25? They seem to be oddly precise levels to stop increasing at otherwise. It would also mean that there are no further skills to be gained from those jobs. If they aren’t counter stopped, I think he should get them to that point before branching into the magic pathway too much.

    • Birdy

      They don’t stop there, I haven’t seen him reach the one for commoner yet from reading ahead, but I saw that he reached it for Apprentice Swordsman, but the author didn’t say what the level was.

    • laharl

      i dunno if there is a limit for level or not, but when commoner reach level 50 they can became noble(it explained early chapter)

      • Waht

        Are you sure it was? I cannot recall that part.
        Must be due to the abundant skipping I did. That book-reading segment had way too much info dumps…

  7. Moe_Ronn

    Much thanks.

  9. kouk2002

    In some ways this reminds me of slave harem, but making a lot more sense in the system used to level and gain skills. Also since most of what I’ve been reading they actually end up in a relationship where they have regular sex, I can’t help but wonder if that will happen here.

    Anyway good luck with the eye surgery, well luck isn’t really needed but as someone that had it 10 years ago the effects are good, but I’d rather not experience it again it’s unpleasant ( think dentist level removing wisdom teeth ).
    I barely got through it as I was restless and not a very good patient to the point they almost gave up on me. I would of expected my £2000 back though if they did.

    • Doesnt seem like it … Dont really hope it ends that way since this author is not the best at descriptions .. Thanks haha hopefully i dont find the experience too unpleasant

  10. Xias

    Thanks for the chapter.

    Well, this development reminds me more and more of the web novel Slave Harem.

    In Slave Harem the MC can choose to “equip” the skills “increase in gained experience” and “decrease in needed experience” at steps x2, x4, x8, … as well.

    The MC of slave harem can equip multiple jobs, too.

    The MC of Slave Harem can change the job settings of his party members at will, too.

    His first companion is a beautiful beastgirl slave of the Wolf Tribe, too, called Roxanne whom he had to purchase, too, within a short time of 10 days after being shown her by the slave dealer.

    Her job is beastwarrior, too, and her trademark is her overpowered evasion ability that surpasses all logic assessment from the other inhabitants of that world on how she can dodge like that while she believes it to be normal.

    Only the MC of Slave Harem has many more options as he also has the skill to reset his bonus points to choose different bonus skills, items or equipments.

    Hopefully the next companion of Growth Cheat´s MC will not turn out to be a dwarf girl slave like in Slave Harem.

  11. laharl

    which mean 20x experience point can effect party exp but 1/20 exp required didn’t affect party

    • Moridain

      Yeah because 20x experience is increasing the total experience earned, while the second is decreasing his own stat (experience required to level).

  12. Thanks for the chapter! And thank god he is actually disclosing his power to his party member/love interest. Slave Harem paranoia, behind!

    Good luck with your surgery, too.

  13. angel

    it remind me of novel slave harem,right ?
    maybe the Author like that novel so much :D

  14. blake77

    I suggest that you use another colour such as red for status decrease, it will make it much easier to see.

  15. Anon

    Honestly speaking slave harem is a pain for me to read be it the flow of the story or the characters, in the end it’s just plain horrible. This here is slightly better so far.

  16. Past One / Hikari to Kage


  17. felipe

    I’m getting confuse about the classes/jobs, could you make a job/class tree and post it together with the chapters?

  18. Oninomad

    That explains why Loligoddess acted as if 20X xp was too much for her but she could do 1/20th xp, 20X is the same in principal but is vastly stronger in practice.

  19. Lucky

    Time for dungeon rush .
    Thanks for the translations

  20. habib

    Thanks for doing this chapter

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

    Ah so she gets 5 times her own exp? Or is it 100 times?

  22. CCaprice

    Thanks for the chapter.

  23. han she got Stone Throw too xD

    If Job Modification works on stranger, if he use it mid-fight he’s gonna be busted pretty fast if there’s witnesses.
