(127) A different world … after all.

Translator: Tseirp

I would be lying if I said I didn’t hope for an extraordinary victory.

I defeated an enemy, that needs a party of B-rank Adventurers to defeat, with a single attack. We defeated a monster that makes even the army take passive action just on our own. I was hoping that we could achieve such an impossible feat.

However ―


The 「Slash」 I released hit the Dragon’s right flank, causing a few scales to fly off and dyed the surrounding grass red with the blood spray but it was not a mortal wound.

The one released by Haru was aimed at the Dragon’s belly but it was blocked by its forefoot and it didn’t suffer any damage.

Damn it, I was too conceited.


“Amazing nya! Even though in theory one should aim for the thinner scales at the center of the belly because the scales on the back are tough, you actually even sliced through the scales!”


Stella excitedly shouted from within the bush she was hiding in.

Ah, so I was originally supposed to aim for the weak belly.

That was an oversight.


“Master, here it comes!”


At the same time Haru shouted that, the Dragon extended the enormous wings on its back ― and somehow lifted that huge body.


(Oi oi oi oi! No matter how you put it, having those wings support such a large body is against the laws of physics!)


You might ask ‘What’s the point of the wings on its back if it can’t fly?’ but I frankly didn’t think that those things on the Dragon’s back were wings.

Unlike the Wyvern that doesn’t have front legs, the Dragon has two front legs and two hind legs. Given that’s the case, I thought that the wings on its back were not wings that had evolved from its front legs ― but instead evolved shoulder blades.

No, I was lying. I wasn’t thinking about that all.

Nevertheless, it’s true that I thought that they were just useless appendages that can at most kick up some wind.


(It has considerable speed.)


I thought of something as the Dragon rose up to a certain altitude and swooped down.

I then took a large leap and rode on the back of the Dragon.


“I have to be careful since the scales on its back are hard ―”


I said as I swung my blade down onto the back of the Dragon that was rising up into the air.

A couple of scales were sliced off and my sword stabbed deeply into the Dragon.

The Dragon rampaged as to fling me off but it couldn’t shake off the sword that was deeply embedded in it and I did not release that sword from my grip.


I pulled the sword towards me with brute force.

It wasn’t to cut it since I would have to pull sideways if my aim was to slice it as the sword was stabbed sideways.




I could hear Haru’s voice but her voice was gradually getting further.

The Dragon was rising up in the air. It was aiming for a distant height in the sky.


The Dragon flew over the forest canopy and into the cloudless sky, giving me the sensation that I had the sun all to myself.


Past the forest, vast grasslands were spread across on one side ― the territory of Dakyat while on the other side, probably the territory of Korat, there was a vast land with red soil. I couldn’t see any further beyond that due to the mist.


(This place is … a different world after all, right? This place is the Otherworld.)


Lately, I’ve been acting strangely. No matter how it is for a friend of Malina, I seriously wonder what am I doing challenging a Dragon, moreover for the sake of Silver Vine.

And in order to dispel my that sense of discomfort, I thought about why I’m taking such actions and why I am in such a place.


“I ― what do I wish to do in this world ―”


I muttered to myself as I felt the wind on my skin.

Lately, there has been days where, not to mention Japan, I have not even thought of Miri who I consider to be more important than myself similar to how I feel about Haru.

My wish is nothing but for Haru and Carol, and now including Malina and Pionia also, to live a peaceful life.


But, why did I involve myself with an incident like this?

Why did I poke my nose into other people’s affairs?


Including the incident this time and the feud between Stella and the Nyanto Six Stars, I predict that there will be some kind of event.

What kind of action do I wish to take in response to that?

Will I allow myself to get involved in it again?


I looked at the Dragon below my feet and smiled slightly.

Then, believing in the Dragon’s ability, I spoke.




The Dragon slowly descended and landed on its original location. Haru took a stance prepared for battle but I restrained her with a wave of my hand.

After confirming that I had gotten off, the Dragon slowly ascended and flew off into the sky.


“Is it alright to not chase after it? Even though you said that you were planning to use the Dragon materials to make weapons.”


Haru asked as she saw off the Dragon. I shook my head sideways.


“Well, it dropped a few scales and more importantly, that Dragon fought me fair and square.”


At that time, the Dragon was only looking at me. Even though it noticed the presence of Haru who was beside, Marina who released the arrows and Stella who was hiding, it focused its attention on me and challenged me to battle.


“That Dragon looked like it was quite intelligent from the way it fought at first but after my attack, it had an honest one-on-one fight with me. Furthermore, it also let me see the best scenery I’ve seen.”


That’s why I tried to negotiate with the Dragon when we were in the sky.


You should clearly understand the difference in our abilities, right? If I was serious, I could have pierced your neck the moment I leaped onto you.

If you accept your defeat then slowly land at your original location. I’ll let you go if you do so.


That was how it went. Then, the Dragon really descended slowly. If my words didn’t get through, I thought that I would have to make it land by force.

I smiled lightly as I watched the Dragon fly off.


I thought of many things but in the end, I want to be happy. I believe everything is alright as long as I can be happy.

I’m content as long as I am happy together with Haru, Carol, Marina and Pionia … with all the ones I care about.

    thanks for the chapter XD

  6. Yup yup

    Thanks for the chapter. I loved the self reflection when he found himself on a dragons back high above the clouds lol

    • Anon

      Forced garbage introspection. I can’t say I like how the MC keeps treating the other girls as an entity more important than his own life.
      Some of them he barely met a week ago, what the heck does he mean “more so than my own life”. Hogwash.

      • sup

        Not everyone, but some find greater fulfillment in what they do for others than themselves.

        There’s more to people than just selfishness.

        • lukas

          It’s one thing to find fulfillment in helping others but placing everybody else above you is something else entirely. Besides I’m quite sure that humanity as a whole is inherently egoistic and selfish and while some might value someone or something more than they value themselves for the sake of love, affection or whatever else it is, that imense care will still only extend to that specific scope of things or people important to them. Getting to a point where your own life matters less to you than that of someone else is a process that for the vast vast majority of those people would take a lot more time and experiences and the very few who actually get so attached in a matter of days have very low sense of self worth and are hence very problematic in their own right. In a setting like this where one has too much power for their own good, being in such a mindset can and will have crutial consequences due to the fact that the world is not perfect. In the end this is just another idealised novel so there won’t be anything like that (which I enjoy since I don’t enjoy heavy plot unless it firts the theme of the book) but the mc is definitely not the in any way representing a mindset that you would find in real life without some serious complexety around the circumstances of it. People are much more complex than one might think and just stamping something as “they enjoy helping” doesn’t really make much sense.

    Thanks for the chapter.

  8. natsukage

    All for the sake of Silver Vine….he fought a dragon….xD Pretty sure someone somewhere is saying : “What the pun…!”

    Thanks for the chapter~

  9. Dogecore

    Thanks for the chapter!

  10. Mion

    Thanks for the chapter!

  11. gechi

    i don’t think it’s only a self reflection. I think he just raised a big flag with this line:
    “I’m content as long as I am happy together with Haru, Carol, Marina and Pionia … with all the ones I care about.”

  12. OhMarioWV

    Thanks for the chapter.

    MC wasn’t thinking of his bro-con imouto? This make me REALLY wanna see the reunion.

  13. GregLuck

    Okay that’s some good twist there, most novel would’ve just killed the dragon or make it his pet, this is good.
    And the self-reflection, is enlightening.
    And the most shocking is the fact that he actually have the power more than eniugh to kill the dragon.

  14. Chuo

    I thought he was going to unlock a new job halfway there, like dragon rider or a tamer job.

    Thanks for the translation ✌

    • The Almighty 404

      Well, NOW he might unlock new jobs. After all, they only get the “level up” announcements when they end a combat, why wouldn’t it be the same for special job unlocks ?

  15. AllTheThings

    This is the stuff good(er) novels are made of ya. Its not just a game, the dragon isn’t an npc, relax a little!

    Self reflection happens in real life if you let it and it should happen in more of this kind of light novels too. .. Well the author’s tend to exposition the self reflection.

    They tend to say “oh he self reflected and got stronger and broadened his mind”. But do they SHOW it? Not always~

    Although it’s kinda hard to self reflect on stuff like xiantain novel’s DAO without making things the fuck up.

  16. Anonymous

    I’ll have to read this again when I’m sober. I just don’t get it totally.

  17. Emperaiga

  22. Thanks for the chapter!
    Cool guy that Ichino, haha

  23. Mirorudo

    Thanks for the chapter.
    This was a refreshing way to resolve the dragon 🙂

  24. Seregosa

    Kinda boring motivation, mc. At least have some manly ambition like becoming the strongest in the world and building a harem. Oh, wait, this is a japanese novel, not a chinese one. Oh well. I already knew it would be like this from the start, most japanese mcs are the same. I’ve read so many chinese novels that, while I enjoy the japanese novels and how they write novels in a more interesting and varying way without as much useless trash and fillers, I have a hard time to accept pussy mcs that has no proper ambitions, doesn’t properly use what is given to them to the fullest(like becoming the strongest in this mc’s case and rushing for the goal since he can reach the peak very quickly), someone who doesn’t kill people and let other people control him, being influenced too much by his surroundings.

    Although chinese novels suffer from excessive garbage info dumps and worthless information along with repetitive writing and horrible romance to the point where I want to puke(all chinese female leads are pretty much copy-pasted ornaments that act the same and are too soulless/subservient), but they have some awesome mcs with great personality and proper attitude without retarded morals and actions.

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

    *see a dragon in the distance*
    Uooo! Dragons! …*drool* dragon meat…
    *chase after the dragon*

  26. Yikes

    Ok…I understand that this is a harem story, BUT im really getting annoyed at how Marina is suddenly in the same category as Haru. Sure, shes from Japan and Ichino enjoys the banter centred relationship he has with her but that doesnt explain how he suddenly becomes super affectionate towards her to the extent of holding her with the same importance as Haru. Hes been through basically this whole world with Haru (not to mention their nightly fun) and we can really see a solid genuine relationship being developed. Haru obviously cherishes Ichino wholeheartedly (which was explained in a generally well written first arc) and the same vice versa. Their relationship is sweet and believable, making me want to root for them.

    I just hate how Marina is suddenly placed so highly in Ichino’s heart when theres been no solid development (apart from the fact that hes a super kind hearted MC who actually wants to help her cure her social anxiety disorder). She was basically a stranger dumped onto him by a stranger. I would understand if Ichino see’s Marina as a comrade/friend but I dont see her even close to the relationship he has with Haru.

    Please if you want to make it a harem please develop the characters so that their is some depth behind their relationship and dont just randomly make the MC start spouting things like “oh i cherish them so much i’d give me life for them”. Im a bit iffy about Carol too but the backstory and development was at least sound. Of course I might be a little biased since Haru and Miri are best girl but I still can’t get this annoyance out of me. If you want to pull out some cringey lines like “all I want is to have X, Y, Z live peaceful lives”, then please at least develop it so that its believable and not suddenly pull it out of your ass just because they travel together.

    Haru best girl. Dont hate on me.

  27. That’s a nice ending.
