Being Able to Edit Skills in Another World, I Gained OP Waifus Chapter 1
Hello! This one is my new [teaser]. I don’t know if I’ll take this project or not because the chapters are too long. I mean it’s the longest I’ve translated so far. And plus editing, proofreading, I would say it took about 3 days.Even if I take this project, the highest probability is just one release per week together with fun harem store management releases. Since my main project is harem series. So enjoy the release. And please do tell me if there is grammatical error. Let’s pray that I’ll take this project on.
Ep1 : Hated by the another world king ,liked by the ghost
On the way to school, an accident happened to the bus that I on board and immediately my field of vision went blank. All the passengers were summoned to the another world.
In the bright throne room, there are a king and a magician wearing a robe said.
People who received guidance.」
「This world has being invaded by the demon lord.」
「That’s why people like you are being summoned.」
「I want you to defeat the demon lord with the special skills which only blessed to another world people and save this world.」
「Once you have defeated the demon lord, the way to your original world will be opened.」
「What is the enemy’s scale? What is the other war potential on the human side?」
「What are the rewards? First of all, we are talking about getting 400 arusha(silver coins) but what is the monetary value of this world? How long people in general household can live with 400 arusha? Is there any regular remuneration? Is that by the accomplishment? Or is it a fixed salary? 」
「It is said that from this time onward we will be transported to frontier stronghold using magic transfer but isn’t funny? Yet we don’t know nothing about this world? We don’t know about the food, the culture or other things in the first place and you send us to the frontline even when we can’t adept with the life.
If you think about being thrown against it, you will just disobey the order.
How is that?」
「No,don’t tell us that you’ll invoke a contract to return us to our original world once the demon lord is defeated.
Then you will say that you will give the weapons, equipment and other things.
Like we will believe in something like that! You said that we are the chosen heroes, but I wonder how many times you have said it.」[tn:he alone said all these things,wew]
I was expelled.
「………I’ve done it.」[tn: Yep, you screwed it up]
I’m at my wits’ end in the royal capital plaza.
On the report card of my primary school, it is written that 『Souma Nagi is better to thought more about reading the situation.』
I’m sorry, Sensei.
It’s been 5 years since I graduated but I’m still didn’t grow much.
……It can’t be helped to be troubled.
Let’s confirm the situation.
Here is the royal capital of Leignadar Kingdom in the centre of Sabara Continent. [tn: if you noticed, I follow the names exactly according to the manga]
The kingdom where the king is, the biggest city in the country.
That white splendid building that can be seen is the royal palace.
I’m in the plaza somewhat off from the royal palace where wide cobbled streets extend from east to west as they met.
There is a large tree planted and I’m sitting at it’s base.
The place where the streets intersect are the place where people gather and there are shops lining around.
It’s a fantasy world therefore there are magic and swords, so there are various races walking in the town.
There are long ear elves , and short dwarves too.
The one with animal ear are the demi-humans, I think.
Yeah, this one is as expected.
The problem is what should I do after this?
The king was generous to give 400 arusha ー 400 silver coins in the leather bag.
As one would expected, it is awkward to just throw someone who he summoned into this world penniless. [ can also be translated here as penniless and naked]
I didn’t take neither weapon (short sword) nor armor (leather armour).
In my possession, there are only medicine plants and 2 days meal which are bread and dried meat in my backpack.
At the present, these are the only things I have.
Don’t hesitate to ask for it.
The king originally summoned us at his own convenience, and with that lending and borrowing are unacceptable.
As for the bus accident, it was not a serious accident to the extent that passengers had died.
Since one couldn’t say that our lives are saved, there is no need to feel guilty.
The other passengers glared at me by the time I was expelled out from the throne room.
Also,I was told to read the atmosphere.
But, I think that my choice isn’t wrong either no matter how many times I consider it.
The king’s request is really making me uneasy.
I would tell you that, I’ve been forced unpaid part time work for 5 times in my 3rd year high school hough.
To start with, there are 400 arusha in my possesion.
Is it a lot or less?
Considering the content of the work, I think that it’s few. [tn:subjugate the demon lord for 400 arusha a month, sign here pls XD]
A while ago, I’ve visited around the places and examined the price for the cafeteria and inn.
And the calculation is that 400 arusha was the amount of a normal person could live about 20 days.
If you listen to what the king says, you may think that it’s enough but you don’t know what standard of food and clothes are offered to begin with.
To send into the front line frontier.
I don’t know if the food or room will suitable for us.
If you dissatisfied, you have no choice but to take 400 arusha and sort out by yourself.
To make thing worse, you can’t even memorise the road if you were to send into the frontier stronghold by the magic transfer.
Given by the magic transfer itself, there should be considerable distance to the frontier stronghold.
It is an evidence that this royal capital is crowded as usual.
If the demon’s threat is nearby and approaching soon, there is no way that everyone will be shopping happily.
In other words, we can’t return by ourselves if we went to the front line.
How far it might be from the front line to the royal capital?
I don’t know if there is a road to the civilized area.
Even if you have cheat skills, you may not be able to do anything with physical 『distance』.
If you don’t have completely survive though.
In other words, we were sent to the front line but in the end we have to obey the rules of our employers.
I you want money, fight the demons.
If you want to eat, fight the demons.
If you want treatment, increase your effort.
Perhaps I should say, there is no choice but to fight the devil king until you defeat it if you want to return to your original world.
Even though I don’t know if I could return to our original world.
I think this is more like a black job though……
「……No, I might have overthinking about it.」
The number one problem is that my skills are way too weak.
The skills are given automatically when 1 was summoned to this world but, my skills are unlikely to be used in battles.
Besides, the levels are too low.
What is this.
Special skill 『 Reconstruction ability ・ Skill Structure LV 1』
General skill 『Fencing LV 2』『Smite LV 2』『Cleaning LV 2』『Analysis LV 2』『Another world Language LV 5』
Particularly Special skill 『Reconstruction ability』, truly ambiguous.
I know about smite and fencing.
I also know about cleaning.
For the another world language, I’m able to translate in real time conversation at the market.
I able to understand all others skills by just imaging the effects yet only the『Reconstruction ability』I can’t grasp the difference about what kind of skill it is.
This is my special skill right?
「『Reconstruction ability』ー invoke」
I invoke the skill and a small tiny window appears before me.
Everyone in this directions seems to pay no heed.
Which means that I’m the only one who can see it.
In the window, there is a set of skills
This set seems to be just an image in your head.
Icon-like things are displayed.
For example 『Smite LV 1』set.
And 『Smite LV 1』
Skill 『Grant』『Powerful damage』to 『Low level monster』
The letters are displayed.
「……How do I survive with this.」
This is the biggest reason why I don’t want to go to the frontline.
(1) The skills are uselsess.
(2) Salaries will be reduced.
(3) Instead of ensuring a minimum life it is used for protection (magic)
I could feel that I’ve seen the future,
If that’s the case, I should find my own way to survive in the town.
This choice is much more better.
The money I possessed are 400 arusha.
For the time beings, I could survive up to 20 days.
Until then, I should find some way to survive.
Thinking about my original world…「It’s lucky if I could return」
I’m not so obsessed otherwise.
The objective from here is 『To survive.』
If possible is to get 『Normal happiness』.
And the final goal is to reach the point of living without have to work.
……I felt that nothing will changed like the one I lived back then in the original world.
「What should I do……」
『 I see that you have received a very interesting skill.
Why don’t we join forces?」
I heard a voice.
Within my head.
Who is iーNobody would answer it even if I ask.
Here is the another world.
There are people with skill to telepath within one’s mind but that is not funny at all.
It’s still not forenoon yet therefore the plaza is crowded with a lot of people.
There are a lot of shops.
There are shop selling fruits.
Shop that sells special meat (self-proclaimed) wrapped with pastry-like thing.
Shop that sells medicine plant and potions.
In addition to stalls, there are also shop that sells weapons and armours , and shop that sells crystal ball that is about a person’s fist.
There is a shop with collar and lock signboardー what is that I wonder.
By the way, there are too many people.
I couldn’t tell where is the source of the person I’m speaking with.
It’s no use to think of 『who』is talking.
Let concentrated on 『what』it is trying to say.
「……Join forces? I don’t understand.」
『This one offer is just nothing but some information.
You’re 「visitor」aren’t you?』
『Different human who comes from a different world.
I know such things are being summoned.』
「I’ll listen it for once……who are you?」
『I’m not an entity.
I’m the past residual thoughts.
It’s a so called ghost.』
Ghost huh……It’s not scary at all to say a ghost in the world of swords and magic,
Just a bit, let’s listen to it’s story more.
「What does a ghost want to tell me?」
『This world’s rules and how to use that skill of yours.』
「Why does a ghost know how to use such skill?」
『Long live……No I have lived for a long time.
Visitors sometimes appear to have the skills to overturn this world’s rule like you.
Those people are the chosen one.』
「The things that are similarly said by the king.」
『I’ll not tell you to fight the demon lord.
I’ll disappear soon.
Residual thoughts can’t have any influence to the world, therefore we become companion and take a glimpse of another person’s skill.』
The ghost said then after a while.
『Let’s do a「Contract agreement」.
I’ll teach you how to use that skill of yours.
And I want you to use your skill to help a girl.』
『In this world, 「contract 」is everything.
Look at the shop that is selling crystal ball in front of the plaza..』
I look at that direction as I was told.
At the shop. there are two men interacting with each other.
One guy with leather bagーlooks heavy.
He gives gold coinsーto the owner of the shop in exchange and that guy receives a crystal ball.
Then the customer pressed in against his chest.
And the crystal ball is sucked into his chest.
That man then runs away somewhere else with a remarkable speed.
『It’s a shop that sells 「Skills」.』
「Skills!?? You can buy and sell abilities?」
『It must be that person’s consent.
You must know about the skill to take it out.
If it sells, you can convert it into gold coins.
Look at the next one.』
「The one with collar and lock logo on the signboard?」
『That is the shop that sells slaves.』
Wait a minute.
Are you selling them to people?
「……I’m glad that I ran away from the king.」
「Fighting and being thrown out when we become useless, selling the skills to earn gold coins, and finally going to the slavery……I felt that I could see the flow.
That’s generally will happen.
In this world.」
That’s the way it is.』
Then the ghost starts to talk about the rules of the『contract』.
『Contract』is to vow to keep promises with mutual consent.
It was to exchange things, buying and selling.
I give you information and you do this..
There is God of Covenant in this world, and binding power works for those who do 『contract』.
If one breaks the contract, he will suffer headache and he won’t be able to sleep.
……The thing is, the king said that 「Defeat the demon lord to return to the original world and 『Contract』」That speech……Conversely, once 『Contract』is invoked 「Until we defeat the demon lord, even if we find the way to return home, we can’t go back to our original world」, aren’t we?
That’s scary! As expected the king is a pitch black!
The other people……Hmm well at first place it’s unreasonable summoning and people should doubt it I think.
Let’s pray that I somewhat had avoided the 『contract』.
I adjusted my mind as I looked at the slave merchant’s shop.
It’s a building with brickwork wall and it’s fit with lattice window.
I don’t know how is the interior.
「You said that I need to save a girl, is she in that shop?」
「What kind of girl?」
『The most beautiful girl in the that store.』
「Could you be specific?」
『It’s a short girl with brown skin.
The name is Cecyl Pharott
She is the last survivor of the demon race who was destroyed by the human.』
The voice said.
『I’m the remnant of all demon race.
The name for this collective body is 「Ashtarte」
I assured myself that you have the proper right to become a good master.
Will you get our daughter,
