(204) The peak of Jobless

Translator: Tseirp


“Eh, Miri. Are there actually even eels(Unagi) in this world? If it’s rabbits (Usagi) then I’ve killed them the moment I came into this world though.”

“There are. There are even regular eels apart from those that are monsters. Wait, Onii, you killed rabbits? Near Florence?”

Miri raised her voice in surprise. True, I never would have thought of killing rabbits when I was in Japan. Especially since Miri liked rabbits. To the point that she even had a rabbit headband.

“Nn … yeah. At that time, I desperately followed what was written in Daijiro-san’s note after all.”

According to Daijiro-san’s note, the pelt could be sold so it was better to hunt them if I could.

However, if I didn’t defeat the rabbit at that time, my Jobless wouldn’t have leveled up and I would have changed job to Commoner like everyone else.

“Leaving that aside, there are eels, eels you know. I see, there are eels in this world too … then I can breed them … no, breeding is impossible huh. Furthermore, if they are dungeon monsters, they would disappear once they are defeated.”

“It’s impossible to breed them. In the first place, it’s difficult to raise them even if we have their eggs. Well, in the past in the Demon Lord Castle we captured juvenile fish and raised them via aquaculture. But defeating the eels would drop a large fillet so I think it’s fine if we just eat that? I let a Japanese who transferred to this world about 150 years ago that stayed at the Demon Lord Castle try it and he commented that it tasted as delicious as the eel from Edo.”

“I see … then I have great expectations for it.”

I was already salivating. I didn’t think I would be able to eat eel in this world.

“Miri, I have a question.”

“Charcoal, earthen charcoal grill, skewers and grandma’s secret sauce, I have them all here.”

“As expected of Miri! Perfect.”

I inadvertently gave Miri a hug.

To think she even brought grandma’s secret sauce. I thought that I at most had to resort to mirin and soy sauce.

It’s already perfect.

“Because I love the eel kabayaki that Onii makes too.”

“Very good, I’ll let Miri have the best piece! Let’s go!”

I opened the door to the boss room.

Just opening the door didn’t start the boss fight.

The battle only began when we entered the door.


That’s why Adventurers could verify the appearance of the boss in the boss room before entering.

Floating there was a blue eel with huge stature. It was 20 times the size of an ordinary eel, it looked more like an enormous snake. It was moving its body vigorously.

It’s lively.

“Hn, it’s gross after all. Onii, let’s defeat it with magic from afar.”

I thought I heard Miri say something but my body moved unconsciously.

“Ice! Ice! Ice! Boost Ice!”

I released Ice Magic.

“Onii, what are you doing!?”

Miri raised a shocked voice.

That’s because I sent the Ice Magic not at the blue eel but at the surrounding walls and the ceiling.

At first glance, that action seemed meaningless but Miri could see the unexpected effects immediately.

The blue eel’s movements became dull.

“I see … it’s still a poikilotherm even as a monster … but that looks like a tremendous waste of MP.” (TL: Poikilotherm = Animal whose internal temperature varies considerably according to the ambient environmental temperature)

Miri muttered but I sliced the neck of the blue eel flying in front of me.

“You did it!”

Miri cried out but I unconsciously pulled my sword away when I reached the middle bone of the eel before landing and then leaping back and throwing my sword.

The eel was still alive.

“Excellent, here I come! Right on target!”

I threw my sword like I was chanting a skill.

The thrown sword stabbed into the eel’s jaw and fixed it onto the ice that formed on the wall.

Great, once it has been fixed, all I have to do is make an incision from the cut at the head and cut open the torso from above the middle bone ―

“Eh? The eel …”

The eel disappeared before I knew it and there was a sliced open eel left on the ice. All that was left was to dip it in sauce and grill it.

The eel portion was five times larger than normal but there wasn’t much if everyone ate it.

I wanted to defeat another two or three more but the back door opened on its own.

【Ichinojo Leveled up】

Ah, there was all kinds of level ups but that doesn’t matter now.

“Miri, what is the respawn time for the eel here?”

“It’s three days. We shouldn’t wait for it.”

” … I see.”

As expected, even I won’t wait for three days just to eat it.

“The eel being here meant that those guys from the Church didn’t defeat the boss. Onii, did you level up?”

“Hn? I did get the level up system message but it flowed too fast and I couldn’t catch it.”

“Then you could look at the log?”


There’s a log? A written record?

“Sheesh. No matter how game-like this world is, there’s no way we can see a log of the system message right?”

“Eh? You can’t?”

“You can’t.”

“Even if you chant Log Playback?”

“Even if you chant Log Playback … eh? Log Playback?’

I’ve never heard of that before.

It wasn’t written in Daijiro-san’s note.

” … Log Playback.”

I chanted.

【Sword Saint skill: 「Sword of Creation」acquired】

“It’s true, it sounds a little slow but it played it back!”

“Looks like you really didn’t know. Well, it certainly wasn’t written in Daijiro’s note so I was wondering if you didn’t know.”

Miri said with a laugh.

Nevertheless, I was lucky that I was taught how to listen to the system message once again the one time I actually missed it.

Either way, I could also see it with a glance if I opened my status page even if I missed the system message.

【Dark Magician skill: 「Dark Attack Resistance」acquired】

【Light Magician skill: 「Light Attack Resistance」acquired】

Those were as expected. The other attribute magicians also have the same skills.

【There are no further levels for Jobless】

Hn? That … I see. So the highest level for Jobless was Lv100.

Well, with the Limit Break medicine, the highest level can become Lv1000 but nevertheless, I have really reached the peak of Jobless.

However, I didn’t get the title?

Normally I would obtain the title but ― having the title that says ‘Peak of Jobless’ would be kind of pathetic.

And I acquired a single skill for maxing out Jobless.

……… Hn?

What the heck?

“Onii, what’s wrong?”

” … No … no … I don’t really know myself.”

【Ichinojo Leveled up】

“How do you stop the playback?”

Miri taught me the method to stop the playback and I wrapped my head with my hands.

No, maybe that is the correct answer after all.


Reaching the peak of Jobless means to then seek for a job.

After all, the skill I acquired was.


【Jobless skill: 「Job Hunting」acquired】


A skill called ‘Job Hunting’ with unknown meaning.


Author’s note:

Is he finally going to quit from jobless?

  1. Unknown

    I don’t know why…but that last part made me laugh badly(lol)
    Thanks for the chapter.

  2. Pyro

    Why do I get the feeling that [Job Hunting] will bring forth an insane trauma for the MC in the next chapter.

  3. Kuro

    System: GO GET A JOB ALREADY!!!

  4. Meeraj

    i feel like that skill will let him choose any job no matter what the requirements are

  5. DarkWolf907

    Thanks for the chapter

  6. natc

    Whatever powers that be put skills onto Jobless in the first place deserves respect.

  7. theory idea

    two ideas come from this.

    1: he either takes jobs/levels from others or
    2: he copies jobs from others without the pre-requisites

  8. Lancelot

    Thanks for the chapter! Hopefully Ichino likes what the skill does.

  9. .    ∧_∧ A

    Gotta read it fast!

    (๑・ω・)ω<๑) Thanks!
    /⌒ づ⊂⌒ヽ Nepu!❤

  10. What

    I bet its a cheat ability that either lets him just flat out acquire jobs from people around him, or shows him how and where to get any missing jobs from.

  11. Delmattia

    “As long as your main job remains Jobless, you’ll be granted every 5 days the possibility to add a basic job to your status.
    You can evolve a job in your possession every 15 days.”

    I’d like something like this, but better done and explained.

  12. Dragons33

    Thanks for the chapter.
    Wow, now even his jobless class is telling him to just get a job. :)

  13. Dang… looks like MC has to get a job now.

  14. Abyssal

    Thank you for the chapter~

  15. Ashton

    Guess he’ll become maou for testing purposes in next chapter.

  16. Richard

    thanks for the chapter!

  17. The Butt Wizard

    I loathe that the only reason I know what a poikiliotherm is came from MonMusu.

  18. Swordsman

    I think MC is stupid to me Jobless is the most OP job there is i mean 5 jobs levelling up at once and the stats from all. Seems to whine a lot even though has such a broken cheat job. I mean what if raising it to 1k level he has 10 jobs at once and ability to give 5 to friends. Also no idea if dropping jobless will mean he can only have 1 class from then on.

  19. Ghaia, the Delusional

    Job Hunting…
    Is he gonna steal other people’s jobs?
    Or is he gonna have a sharp increase in the amount or type of jobs he can obtain?

  20. Itisn1tmyname

    Mhhhhhh….. now he just has to use that potential-unlocking medicine that his sister can make in order to remove the level cap on Jobless and we’re good to go.

    Further down the rabbit hole! There is no escaping once you are so damn Jobless!

  21. Kazarine

    So… He got more job slots?

  22. SFcipher

    Thanks for the treat.

  23. Job Hunting? Sounds like creating your own job.. Maybe the reason he could equip other classes was to test them out so that he could create his own. Welp, just my speculations.

    Thanks for the chapter~

  24. laharl8080

    Come on he is been jobless for long then he suddenly got job hunting job….
    There is a limit how bad a jobless can be..

  25. shadowtrap2010

    i think the next one would be “Job interview” !!!

  26. rooislangwtf


  27. Captain Crunch

    Hmmm job hunting makes it sound like the series is almost over. But Miri is looking for stones and some demons are still moving around, so it can’t be over.

  28. Wolf

    Maybe he will be able to see a list of all possible jobs….

  29. Over a 100 levels and still jobless, lets put the counterstop around here and give him a skill to make him get the point! XD

    Thank you for the chapter and the treat. (^_^)/

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

    System: [go get a job already!]
    Ichinojo: “never! I’ll level it up to 1000!”

  31. CCaprice

    Thanks for the chapter.
