Chapter 159: Once again, Spartan training

Translator: Tseirp

In the darkness where light cannot be felt, I walked while being guided by Nadia and Lydia on my left and right.

They weren’t holding my hands but were only verbally guiding me but even that helped a lot.

I walked while confirming the path ahead using my Illusionary Cane/Staff but I’ve already almost stumbled and fallen several times so I was about to get cold feet.

Thinking about it made me feel slightly depressed.


I knew that I was entering the ant labyrinth but the eerie circumstance of not entering battle at all caused me to feel anxious as I stepped forth.

All the while praying that I will somehow move intuitively if anything dangerous happens because I have the danger perception skill …


However, something I did not imagine happened.


“Well then Luciel, try to survive with your vision like that.”

After I seemingly heard Shisho’s voice say that, I was pushed on my back and my danger perception skill suddenly began to react.


I was convinced that I was brought to some monster room by Shisho.

“What’s the meaning of this, Shisho?”

“Try defeating all your enemies while in that condition. Your opponent is a horde of ants so there’s no need to hold back. This is a rudimentary step taken because of what you lack. Work hard~.”

The next instant after I heard Shisho’s amused voice that was the polar opposite to my anxious voice, I heard the sound of heavy doors closing and there was no reply even when I called everyone’s names.


” … Seriously?”

To be honest, faced with the level of poor treatment incomparable to the past, I could not believe Shisho’s words for a moment.

For a person who can’t utilize presence perception and magical power perception well to be subjected to such poor treatment, Shisho’s training is seriously unconventional.


Just hearing the 『Kisha Kisha』 cries and the 『Saku Saku』 sounds like the sound of legs creeping on the surface of the ground made it feel like my heart rate spiked all at once but in order to secure my safety with what I am capable of at the moment, I invoked 「Area Barrier」 and attempted to watch for the timing when I receive attacks.

I transformed my Illusionary Cane to its sword form and swung it in the direction of where I sensed a tingling sensation but not only did that attack not hit, it backfired on me as I felt a light impact on my abdomen.

I somehow flung my fist parallel to the location I received the attack and an unpleasant gooey sensation was transmitted to me.

” … I see. The opponents are weak but numerous. So I will be able to sense the opponent’s presence and magical power like this?”


Fixing my goal as I naturally did not want to die, I stored my Illusionary Sword in my item bag and took out the Holy Dragon Spear to extend the distance between me and my opponents.

While focusing on the tingling danger perception, I began concentrating in order to sense presence and magical power.


Reading the situation by relying on sound, I sharpened my senses and attacked.

If I hit, I repeatedly corrected my error in sensing and allowed the feeling to permeate into my body.

Once I was comfortable with that, I then released my magical power externally and searched for the external sensation but that did not work at all.

“I forgot that labyrinths emitting magical power.”


I felt troubled for forgetting that important point but conversely, if I am capable of searching for magical power apart from my magical power and the labyrinth’s magical power, won’t I similarly be able to grasp other presences? With that thought, I was suddenly feeling motivated.

“Shall I go at it in a positive mindset after such a long time? Well, the ants have retreated … ouch?”

The instant a presence entered my sense when I sharpened my senses with all my nerves, some liquid suddenly hit my hand and it was slightly itchy so I applied 「Heal」 just in case.


“Maybe they are able to spit something like acid? If I don’t concentrate more, Shisho will laugh at me … that’s the only thing that irritates me so I’d hate it if that happens.”

I spread my legs shoulder width apart, lowered my hips, readied my spear and calmed my spirit with stable breathing.


The condition where I can only attack after receiving an attack was extremely vexing so my spirit seemed like it would break quickly.

Even so, because my proficiency rose ever so slightly judging by my proficiency appraisal, I was confident that what I was doing was not wrong.

It felt to me that the people connected to me in this world are sensitive to presence and magical power.

And they vaguely felt the fact that I (for being a reincarnated being) am a person who does not possess that sensitivity.


They probably accumulated experience on it since young.

Since the growing up phase is the golden age for acquiring techniques.

Even so, for the sake of my dream, I can’t die here.


“Even though it’s true that people who have stacked training since young would be strong, I should be able to do so if I put in effort that exceeds that. Dear ants, you will be the food for my growth and my supporting foundation.”

I relit my motivation by thinking positive but what awaited me was not attacks but Shisho’s attack using words.


“Then I’ll raise the difficulty slightly for the next round. Don’t mutter to yourself on your own in a place like this. It’s making the people here feel embarrassed.”

“Eh? Shisho? Since when?”

“From the start. Since I am aware that I am making you do something unreasonable. However … I think you’re putting in too much motivation for just 10 of the weakest ant monsters but … oh well. We’ll be moving to the next hunting ground.”


Suddenly attacked by intense shame, I wanted to hide in my shell like a shellfish but there’s no way Shisho will let me do so, so I began moving forward.

I felt the atmosphere of not only Shisho but also everyone else resisting the welling urge to laugh but I understood that they were here to cheer me on so I smiled and gave my all as I cried in my heart.


Without sparing any time for sleep, I was brought to the next hunting ground one after another and I was told by Nadia that 2 people monitored me until I defeated all the opponent while the others either took breaks or had mock battles.

“I didn’t imagine that I would be using 「High Heal」 like this countless times so isn’t Shisho being too excessive?”

“Everyone can sense with their skin the strength of Luciel-sama’s Shisho a.k.a Whirlwind-sama as well as Lionel-sama.”

I heard that Nadia requested Shisho and Lionel to teach her but she seemed like she was having quite some fun as her voice was lively.


” … Those 2 aren’t having their mock battle?”

“Yes. Since they don’t seem like they would settle for a draw once they fight, for now, all of us have mock battles with either one of them.”

As expected of rivals, they won’t settle for a draw.

Even so, Cathy, Kefin, and Estia should be quite strong too but if those 2 can still obtain a complete victory, have they always been that strong?

It’s possible that an ordinary person can’t grasp the greatness of a person over level 400 so I spat a sigh and was laughed at by Nadia.

While feeling slightly nostalgic, I requested of Nadia for just one matter going by their personality.


“Even though those 2 are strong, please tell them that I want them to come over if they get injured.”

“Yes, sir.”

Although I felt that I was slightly being laughed at, since the time they spent assisting me was long, I had the chance to talk with Estia, Nadia and Lydia so it felt like the distance between us shortened slightly.


My resting time was to be when we move to another hunting ground and the time I spend casting healing magic, as well as when we had meals and I was told that I can sleep anytime.

As I got to know the difficulty of maintaining concentration as the ants gradually became stronger and their numbers increased, I poured all my nerves into sensing presence and magical power.

Repeating that action, after the end of our 7th meal, I acquired the 「Magical Power Perception」 skill.

However, it was from that point that I felt that life was not that easy.


I moved from a level where I could roughly know where the presences were but then descended into a level where I conversely did not know where the presences were.

” … Does this mean it is equal to not being able to distinguish between the labyrinth’s magical power and the monster’s magical power?”

I was able to tell at the shallower portion of the labyrinth where the labyrinth’s magical power was weaker the magical power of the monsters but that phenomenon happened when I descended to a floor where the magical powers were almost the same.


Just as I thought that I would be able to break through the ant labyrinth when I can somehow overcome this situation, Shisho called out for me to stop.

“This won’t really function as training so we’ll move to the next location? Luciel, take out the horses using your Hermit’s Key and the carriage from your item bag. Also, take out the food too. You can sleep a bit after that’s done if you want to.”

Following Shisho’s instructions, I took out the carriage and food and for some reason Angel’s Pillow as well before my danger perception activated with a tingle the next instant and I felt a sharp pain in my abdomen.

“Gaba!? What?”

Following that, I felt another tingle and after receiving a shock to my neck, my consciousness faded away.



My consciousness returned with the sensation of a rattling shaking motion but because of a severe headache and sore neck, I healing myself with 「Middle Heal」.

“Where am I?”

“Luciel, you’ve awoken. I felt bad but you totally did not sleep during the labyrinth dive so I knocked you out and used that pillow to let you sleep.” (TL: Lol how’s that needed with the power of Angel’s Pillow?)

” … Thanks to that, I slept well but the sensation after waking up was the worst.”

While having mixed feelings about Shisho’s overenthusiastic method to make me sleep, they informed me before I once again asked where we were.

“We’ll be reaching the Hungry Wolf Labyrinth soon and we’ll be having the training there this time.”

I wanted to ask if the Hungry Wolf Labyrinth was where wolf monsters appear but knowing that I have no right to refuse, I just nodded in silence.


When I opened the Hermit’s stable to herd the horses in, even though I could not see with my eyes, I could clearly identify just the presence of Fornoir.

Then, she approached me and once again play bit my head before returning to the stable.

“Fornoir … probably emits too much presence.”

I laughed at my own strangeness but because I suddenly laughed, I felt some slightly weird gazes.


We had our meals immediately after arriving at our destination, the Hungry Wolf Labyrinth, and my training began after I took a break for a moment.


Even though I was properly equipped and I had erected a 「Area Barrier」 to absorb impacts, I was unexpectedly sent flying and my balance crumbled.

Furthermore, they cooperated with each other so it was nasty.


Without being able to rely on sight, I distinguished their movements from their soft footsteps and breathing and although I sensed the presence of the wolves that charged at me and somehow cut them down, if I did not strike them optimally, the stench of their blood would attract others and I felt the number of wolves steadily increase.

Even so, without giving up, I desperately defended the space between myself and my opponents no matter what happened to look for the right opportunity.

Once I strengthened that resolution, by the second meal time since we came to the Hungry Wolf Labyrinth, I acquired the skill 「Presence Perception」.


“Might I be a genius?”

When I muttered that, a grand sigh came from behind.

While thinking that I once again showed Shisho my embarrassing side, in my elation, I announced the results of my training to Shisho.


“Shisho, it seems like I have acquired the Magical Power and Presence skills so I have come to understand the benefits of perception and, little by little, the sense of finding the appropriate opportunity.”

“I see. It’s going quite smoothly. Moreover, you have a strong will … that’s exactly why you are my disciple.”

” … Shisho, what’s wrong?”

I suddenly had a very bad feeling.


“If you sense a strong bloodthirst, think of it as me or Sen’oni and don’t attack. If we grip your elbow then it’s to lead you to move. If we touch your right shoulder then it’s the cue for lunch break. Touching your left shoulder is a cue to apply your healing magic on us, hitting both your shoulders is the cue to take out the carriage, if somebody hugs you, use Extra Heal on yourself. Have you remembered all of it?”

“Eh? If it’s just that then I should be able to remember but … ?! Gyaaaaaa!”

I felt a sharp pain in both my ears with a 『Paan!』 and after that, there was complete silence, in that total darkness, I felt like I was in a deep sea where nothing can be heard except the rising beat of my heart.

I used 「Heal」 without hesitation but I did not regenerate my eardrums.

Because I would be able to see Shisho turn into a demon with my eyes if I regenerate them.


While thinking that the demon inside Shisho was having a slight conflict within him, it has become a training to rely on only magical power and presence after losing my sight and subsequently my hearing, I felt the beating of my heart throb even more than usual.

Thus, the severity of my training further increased.

    What’s next? Will they stab him in the head to get rid of his magic sense?

    • Maybe let him experience death to lower or stop his heartbeat to lower his presence or something~~

      Thanks for the chapter~~

    • Easykiln

      Strap a cloth doused in object x to disable scent? Lightly char his skin to kill off the surface nerves and prevent him from detecting things like the movement of the air? Magic power strobe light to make it hard to pick out enemies?

  5. replay

    somehow. . . i want him to go berserk onetime . . .
    or is it just my blood boiling because of his attitude?

    • Helper

      Yes I hate his attitude! I think he does not care about his dream anymore. With his skills he can go to the countryside and live a relaxing life. Why torture yourself? I want a reincarnated person or just somebody to come and ask him why does he torture himself beyond reason?

    • Helper

      I just want him to say enough is enough and stop.

    • Kris

      actually i think by this point they have conditioned him to expect such horrible treatment anymore that the little part of your brain that would trigger in these situations is broken so badly even High Heal won’t fix it.
      I think the year of training in the beginning and then the year being locked alone in the dark dungeon by himself left him in this state of thinking that something strong out there is constantly trying to kill him.

    • 4Curses

      well, but he will die in the future if he doesn´t become stronger now? look at all the shit he´s getting pulled in just by travelling home, th emoment he says enough and goes to life somewhere in peace is the moment that playe becomes the place the demonlord is sealed or some shit. like the Dragon said, it can´t stop the wheel of fate(author) from shoving all kins of misery up his butt.

  6. replay

    somehow. . . i want him to go berserk onetime . . .
    or is it just my blood boiling because of his attitude?

  7. Natsume02

    Seriously it’s starting to get more and more ridiculous.

    @replay: I agree with you. I really want him to berserk one time at least. Just show who’s the boss. (Well we know it’s not him. Seriously I wish he was more like Ichino from GC.)

  8. Scheharaza

    scary training indeed..

  9. Chuo

    That knocking him out when they clearly saw him taking out the pillow was completely unnecessary. I find it funny you guys think that he going berserker is going to do anything, they would probably deal with him easily.
    Thanks for the translation ✌.

  10. Going berserk is only for when you can actually show some results (ass-kicking) with it. As it is now, he would only pointlessly get beat up, even more, be embarrassed, and maybe lose some affection points of his party if he berserks. And besides, while the methods are extreme, they work because they are so extreme; so like his party has said, this is for his own good to complete his dream of living a long life.

    • ModoTheGreat

      If he wanted to live long, he could have neglected combat training after the first month in Meratoni. Desk jobs at the healer guild are perfectly safe.

      No, his supposed goal is a hoax and the author will just continue giving Luciel an eternal training arc into Hero status. There’s no explaining anyone, even a super masochist that was able to flourish in a 20-hour-per-day job, putting up with this stuff.

      And yet here I am reading another new chapter. Weird. 😛

  11. Stephanie

    Thanks for the chapter

  12. Jas

    Incoming rant here

    Am I the only one who feels sorry for Luciel? I mean, he has already put a lot of effort, way more than what a normal person would do, just for the sake of not dying and living a peaceful life (which when you consider his past life it is a normal wish), yet he gets this kind of treatment by others for that, getting the weird nicknames or being laughted for being to serious.

    I know that this is supposed to be funny and all but honestly it only was at the beginning, since at this point they should be already aware of Luciel’s personality, but instead of praising all the hardwork he is already doing it feels like they think it isn’t enough.

    I think Luciel really needs someone who truly understand him, because regardless of how highly the others think of Luciel, it doesn’t feel like they understand Luciel (which hopeful will change in the future)

    Sorry for the rant again, I feel a bit better now, anyway, thanks for the chapter

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

    …will he plug Luciel Nose next?! and after luciel learn how to cast spells.. will they bind him so he cant move and shoot the enemy somehow?

  14. The boy is not right in the head… 🙁

  15. nelus4blood

    First the eyes, now the ears, he’s gonna get rekt if he likes it or not
    i really don’t want to be in his position.
    jokes aside, thanks for your hard work and the new chapter tseirp!

  16. PastOneHikariToKage


  17. SFcipher

    First, the eyes, then the ears, what will be next?? That is not training, that is total abuse!!
    Thanks for the chapter

  18. S4TY4

    Thanks for the new chapter

  19. Hickups

    I’m loosing any sympathy for luciel, he’s too much of a whimp and yes man these chapters. Seriously, earplugs and a blindfold could have achieved the same, does the author think this is funny?
    Any normal person wouldn’t put up with this kind of abuse and disrespecting subordinates. I know luciel wants to befriend them but god I hope he puts them into their place one of these chapters. Who the fuck would laugh at their benefactor in this kind of situation?

    • Hickups

      Add: It looks like his character is regressing.

      thanks for the chapter though.

  20. Angel

    The dude that asked how he got so many skills… if he knew… if only he knew…

  21. Weasalopes

    Actually, it’s not entirely bogus.

    Many years ago, early during my participation in the Society for Creative Anachronism in the then Principality of An Tir (Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Northern Idaho, Alberta), there was a gentleman, Alan of Dracocrag, who did demonstrations of what was referred to as “blind Samurai”.

    He would have his helm completely covered such that it was not possible for any light to come through, and stand in the middle of the Tourney Field while various other combatants would attempt to creep up on him and strike a blow.

    He always succeeded in detecting them and blocking the attack.

    He also, reportedly, had killer headaches afterwards, so he stopped doing this after a while.

    Seeing this made a big impression on me.

    That was nearly thirty years ago.

    I knew him, and the others involved, well enough to know that it wasn’t staged.

    So, yes, it really is possible to develop your senses other than sight to the extent that you can detect threats coming your way.

    I don’t know if you can actually do this with hearing loss added in, as at that point, yes, you really are talking about “ki” and such as if they are real, but… I’m not willing to totally discount the concept, having seen the “blind Samurai” demonstrations.

    I recently had testing done of the nerves in my hands, and this was done using devices that sensed the flow of electricity from outside of the hands; while needles were inserted elsewhere, to generate the signals, nothing was inserted in the hands, instead sensors encircled the fingers, etc. and detected the flow via the changes in the magnetic field produced by the flow of electricity, similarly to how a clamp multi-meter detects whether there is electricity flowing through a cable, and what the power levels are.

    So, that it might be possible to develop the ability within ourselves to detect external electrical fields, I can’t discount it entirely without taking a good look at the procedures used to examine the claims made by some to be able to do so. After all, electrical fields intersect and change the behaviours of each other when they do so. Electromagnetic relays rely upon this to work. MRIs, CAT Scans, etc., all work in this manner.

    So if you posit “ki/chi” as referencing the electrical fields that permeate our world… it ceases to be mysticism and starts to be something that might actually be detectable via science, given sufficiently well designed instrumentation.

  22. SpinelesS

    Thanks for the translations 🙂

    And the MC wondered why he got all those masochistic nicknames…

  23. ….I saw the ear thing coming during the explanation. Seriously, what the hell.

  24. Cabbage

    I’d fucking kill him, like nope I’m done you’re a cunt, time to die.
