(212) Imprisoned Miri

Translator: Tseirp


Miri woke up in a cabin. There was a small window and she could see that it was already night outside.

Looking down, she could tell that she was in the air and gray clouds illuminated by moonlight slowly passed by.

” … Petite Dark.”

She chanted but her spell didn’t activate.

That was when Miri noticed the foreign object on her wrist.

There was a white bracelet around her wrist. That was something Miri ― no, Famiris‧Raritei once created, a simple item that seals magical power. It was made 500 years ago to confine prisoners capable of using magic but the slave collar was invented soon after so the bracelet was never spread to the world and was locked in the depths of the Demon Lord Castle.

It seemed Daijiro picked it up after they defeated Famiris.

” … Hey, you are there right? Why don’t you just come in already?”

Miri said in the direction of the locked door.

When she did that, the door was unlocked and a brown-haired woman wearing something similar to that of Captain Hook from Peter Pan entered.

“You have grown quite big, Chibi Daijiro.” (TL: Chibi = Small child/Runt)

“You are the one who turned tiny, Famiris‧Raritei.”

Daijiro said that with a smile before she suddenly grinned and asked.

“So, how was it! Your life in Japan! Hey, is it really true that a radio tower twice the height of Tokyo Tower was built!?”

“Yeah, pipe down. I’ll sew your lips if you don’t quiet down.”

Miri held her head seeing how her enthusiasm hasn’t changed even after 13 years.

The battles between Famiris and the Hero Alessio unfolded time and again.

In the midst of that, Famiris found out about Daijiro who helped Alessio many times in his adventures and kidnapped her.

Thereafter, Daijiro found out that Famiris was a former Japanese and was even the person Princess Kaguya was modeled after which made her befriend her instantly.

Incidentally, Famiris heard from Daijiro that her parents had thought of boy and girl names before she was born. At that time, Daijiro which was meant to be the name for a son was left as her sacred name. Then, when she was reincarnated in this world, her sacred name Daijiro was taken as her official name in this world.

“Daijiro … thank you for waiting.”

“Did you say your goodbyes?”

“I never intended to say them. Onii would definitely oppose it after all. In the first place, I came here not for Onii’s sake but for my own sake.”

” … You’re not being honest with yourself, Famiris. Isn’t it better to just be honest? You came to this world so that you could spend your whole life with your favorite Onii-chan. But it’s really ironic. The Demon Lord died in order to protect the world. Outwitting the whole Church, keeping it a secret from your favorite Onii-chan ―”

“I’ll kill you if you say anymore.”

“Fufu, but can you?”

Sparks flew from Miri’s bracelet when Daijiro asked that.

“Do you think such a second-hand magic tool is capable of sealing my magical power?”

The next instant, smoke rose from the bracelet and it fell off.

That bracelet would overheat and break once it receives more magical power than it can withstand … or that should have been the case.

” … Eh?”

The bracelet was destroyed. However, there was another bracelet below it and that bracelet was still wrapped around Miri’s wrist.

“Have you forgotten that I am a Magic Tool Engineer? I have long since improved on such a defect.”

Daijiro proudly claimed.

“Great job, Pinky.”

“Don’t call me Pinky. My name is Daijiro.”

“Ara? I like it. Your name, Pinky, written as ‘One’ and ‘Key’. Even though I feel that nobody could ever read that.”

Satou Pinky was Dairijo’s original name. (TL: 佐藤(さとう)一鍵(ピンキー))

She really hated that name and longed for an ordinary name.

That was why she was overjoyed when her name was Daijiro when she came to this world. To the extent that she didn’t mind even though that was a boy’s name.

“So, who knows that I am here?”

“Excluding your Onii-san’s party and the Goddesses, probably Alessio and gang as well as the Pope. Ah, and also the current Demon Lord and group.”

“Current Demon Lord? Ah, right, there were such people around. Although I have already taken down some small fry called Valf.”

“Who is that?”

“Should be some subordinate. It seemed like he was planning various schemes. He apparently used to be my subordinate but I totally don’t recall.”

“Please manage your subordinate properly.”

Just as Daijiro said that, a loud explosion echoed out.

They were wondering what happened when,


“Oh my god, Elize! The pot exploded!”

“Oh my god, Jofre! It’s a huge explosion!”

“This is a great chance to make popcorn! Elize, have you heard of popcorn?”

“Yup, dried corn that would explode when exposed to fire right! Now that I think about it, the feed for the pigs in the flying ship ranch is also dried corn!”

“That’s it, Elize! Let’s quickly get a pot that can heat up and make popcorn!”


Such idiotic voices could be heard.

“Please manage your subordinate properly.”

” … Sheesh. I shouldn’t have brought those people even if I was lacking the manpower!”

Daijiro said as she left the room. Naturally, she locked the door after she left.

Miri looked out the window and sighed softly.

“I won’t try to escape even if you don’t lock the door or put this bracelet on me.”

IS B12C258


  1. Seems nice to know that she’s all well and good, but Onii-san doesn’t know so RAGE he goes~!

  2. DarkWolf907

    Thanks for the chapter

  3. Not Important

    As many people though it really was a gambit that got Miri reincarnated and that this was her plan from the beggining, but while I understand that they could not anticipate the MC’s power level, unless one of them is that forgotten godess becasue all we know is that she has finally reappeared, what makes them think that the Ichinoski will not I don’t know blast something down the note probably explains that they are not sibilings, I almost wish they were and because of the ploy with darjiro she was not seen by the godesses but apparently not, but that will probably not stop him from using the power he has to rip something apart, I wonder what would happen if he had demon lord in his next use of job search, How much heck would break loose as a one day demon lord suddenly rose and nuked the entire church.

    • The Butt Wizard

      Not even one day.

      choose “Demon Lord” job ->
      level grind at 400x experience ->
      permanently gain Maou-exclusive powers ->

      • Guspaz

        He doesn’t get to pick jobs arbitrarily, though, does he? The Demon Lord job may not be available.

        • kurotian

          Doesnthe have that part-timer skill what if demon lord god appeared

          • Rhondeau

            O shit you’re right.. Grind on OP-nojo

        • Caudyr

          While he doesn’t actually HAVE the job…he DOES have Darkness Magic…and isn’t the Demon Lord job essentially an extension at the peak of that magic?

          He might get the ability to “choose” it if he wants, eventually. ESPECIALLY if he’s filled with rage after Miri was taken like that.

          I really can’t help but feel that they made a horrific mistake by doing that to Miri, lol. They just have yet to realize it. XD

  5. Nyamsus

    Breaking news..
    Dajiro swing that way.!!!

  6. The Butt Wizard

    Hah! So that’s why Milky’s pen name is “Pinky Pants!”

    How the Hell did she know about Daijiro’s real name in the first place?

  7. Abyssal

    Thank you for the chapter~

  8. Thanks for the chapter~Nya…

  9. Zehd

    Seriously Miri even if you tell your beloved onii-chan to stay put while you are being “kidnapped”, do you really think he will stay put?

    • K~

      Yeah, she actually thought that his slaves could stop him. I mean, they have that collar for a reason.

  10. Thanks! Nepu!!!

  11. K~

    I’ve been thinking about this for a while now, does that world doesn’t have any mana potion or something?

    • Dancer

      Yes. Mana grass steeped in water is the basic mana potion. Miri mentions it on the way into the labyrinth. There are also stronger MP restoratives that Ichinojou has used

  12. The risky guy

    I think there was one after the battle with monsters where mc used carol’s power to bait monsters repeatedly to protect a town. He got it from the other japanese that got the power to be a template protagonist. What was his name again?

  13. FranckOA

    As usual, most of the issues in many novels could get resolved in less than one chapter if people where frankly talking with each others about pending stuff and things that they know will happen…
    To bad that this novel rely so heavily on this obvious kind of stuff and use it as “foreshadowing”.

    • Cha

      Average novels have to rely on forced plot.

      Plus, if talking to people can solve most problems, then why doesn’t the RL do it?

      • RuRo

        They actually do.

        I don’t know what are you talking about. In RL, actual problems are practically non-existent. Even the most extreme and rare soul-crushing events in RL aren’t exactly “problems”. They are mostly unsolvable, even with communication (ie illness, accidents).

        In fact, RL is extremely safe and sane. If a persons choice to not communicate leads to even slight inconvenience for others, they are practically despised for that. RL is boring and RL is predictable.

        Now, I am not saying, that LNs should model events on RL, however out of all possible sources of plot development, Deus Ex Machina and Keeping Your Mouth Shut (Shitty Foreshadowing) are 2 ways that are easiest to write and coincidentally are the most boring and overused.

  14. Shin

    Man, this is so addictive.

    I read it from the beginning and I’m catching up. This is so fun.

    I will donate later, but please understand that I can’t donate much.

  15. Vincent

    Why won’t those two fucking idiots die already, they are not funny so they can’t even be called comic relief!! So why won’t this fucking author just kill em off already!! For fuck’s sake I hate them so much

    • Yamite

      Thank you!! At first, they were just some pleasant side characters, funny to read about them from time to time, but now they are nothing more than a ridiculously stupid couple. I seriously can’t put up with their shit and can’t comprehend why the author would make them so ‘relevant’ to the main story. It just seems way too forced at this moment. I’d be ok, if they would appear in some side storys, but they seriously have to stop appearing in the main story in the most dumbest ways possible!

  16. Lav

    now we wait for O(p)nii-san to crush their castle.

  17. Gehoji

    >Waits Until Miri’s teleport location switches to the airship
    >Teleports to the airship via lifestyle magic IV
    >Wrecks literally everything
    >Airship is now gone and Dajiro looks stupid
    >Miri realizes her whole plan was stupid

    Too bad this isn’t going to happen because the Author is going to make MC dumb.

  18. I can’t even be thankful for the chapter. It’s just… why Miri?

  19. SFcipher

    Thanks for the treat.

  20. Kazarine

    lol I’m back here! Thank you for your translation!
    Since the story move this way, decided to keep reading this !

  21. A random passerby

    Miri should realize already that lolis are not meant to die in the novels

  22. rooislangwtf

    Thanks. I hope he just ports to her.

    • Caudyr

      Haha, yeah. I mean…really…there’s nothing to say he can’t just teleport there, now that he’s gotten that Lifestyle Magic spell.

      Only time will tell if he’s actually smart enough to DO THAT, though.

      I definitely feel like Daijiro (and by extension, Miri) made a biiiiiiiiiiig mistake by doing this, though. Especially since Ichino HAD been grateful to Daijiro before this. I bet all that gratefulness will simply disappear into oblivion now, and be replaced by anger and rage…since she’s the only family he has left.

  23. Ashmir


  24. yikes

    Im hoping onii-san goes on a rampage after this. otherwise it would just ruin his character

  25. What was that about Metias ?

    Also, uh, not sure you realize that, you two, but your oniichan is about to wipe out the church at this rate.

  26. zioming

    So it they put either the magical bracelet or the slave collar on him he can just switch to max physical attack and break it with raw muscle strength. They could try to put a collar on him and give him some order, but the way it forces people to obey is by contracting, which won’t work thanks to the skill Miri gave him :)

  27. Lecora Alzuras

    If the current pope knows, I wonder if they’re someone familiar with Miri in the past (and a good person compared to the rest of the church). And, pope is probably female.
