Chapter 12 Kitsune that can’t read the atmosphere.

Kuma otou here,

well its done… the 13 is also halfway but not yet there. feel free to point out mistakes and i will try to correct them. its not perfect, i hope its still readable… in any case MissereMeow is also doing chapter 14 (not that 13 is done) the link is here. i haven’t read it nor do i have any intention to read it before i finish with chapter 13 (reading ahead kind of kills it for me).

Rant:

realized that the pace is slow, though i’ve seen some translation coming in every month… i’m like on my 3rd week every chapter but still its out. so forgive the delays, since RL is a killer with a full time job and family here.

for those who wish to translate i only sincerely hope you tell me which chapter you want to do and post it after the latest chapter was out since i would like to avoid getting rushed, and spoilers, and temptation to read ahead, and so on (KnM group was awesome in doing this). o yea, telling me too would be nice since we can have some collaboration or something to help speed out the chapter release like clown translation (where are my doses of slime!!!!).

in anycase, i will improve the checking and capitalization and so on after ok? since i got this japanese keyboard on my laptop…. the symbols never came out right and the auto correct is kind of screwed on a win 10 with japanese language which i turn to english…

o well, enjoy!!!!

Kitsune that can’t read the atmosphere.

For now, Kitsune that finished registering decided to find some jobs. there is still time for him, that’s why for Kitsune right now, he just want to get some trivial jobs, something easy enough to do for him. to get some money enough to pay his rent today.

There is only 1 procedure to accept a job, you just pick a suitable job posting on the wall and bring it to the receptionist. then the receptionists like Mia whom he met earlier will make the job acknowledgement procedure. the job then will be given completion time limit, and for jobs that are basically helping people or H rank jobs are basically jobs that can be finished within a couple of day, that’s why these orders are given a 1 or 2 day time limit only.

Kitsune and Finia stood in front of the jobs board.

[so, what kind of job will we do for our first time?]

[let see… how about this one?]

following Kitsune’s question, Finia pointed to 1 particular job order. Kitsune looks at it closer :

<H Rank Job>

Client    : Miria Airin

Payment : 1 Silver coin

Job Detail : Finding missing pet

Time limit : 2 day

[I can’t read the language..]

[Ah! i see!]

[Finia can read this?]

[I can! i understand Kitsune’s language and this world language! i’m Finia the Language Master!]

[Then, what kind of job is this?]

[ehmmm…..]

Kitsune heard the details  from Finia and felt it’s not such a bad job. Looking for pets won’t harm him and it only needs 2 day as well, so he thought it’s good enough. and if he obtained the 1 silver coin reward, then he will obtain his registration money fee back.

[Mia cha`n! i’ll take this order!]

[Why do you have to come to me? you should go over there, please go there!]

[Please, do your job properly]

[…sigh… ok… …. i’ll draw the client location for you as well]

[oh ok, …yes, thank you]

When Kitsune brought the job order to Mia, she shove him away with a sour face to other receptionist, but after Kitsune’s word, she had no choice but to process his job.

When Mia was handling Kitsune’s job order and drawing the location of the client, Kitsune started idle chat with Mia “come think of it…”.

[by the way Mia chan, to be promoted from H to F, what must i do?]

[for that……. to be promoted to F rank is relatively easy. in this Guild there is a [Guild Leader]. the Leader will periodically held trainings and you can be promoted to F rank if your Jitsuryoku is enough. OK here is your map]

Kitsune listened to Mia and received the map while nodding

Then he thought, if the recognition is during training, then without attending the training, he will forever be H rank. for Kitsune this is a good system for him.

[Since everyone wants to get F ranked quickly, then for those confident with their Jitsuryoku, they will immediately register for the training. in the past, there is also those accepted into F rank just by having spirits of confrontation (T/N: it should mean that the guy basically bash into a 1 on 1 fight to get recognized).]

[I see…]

[Kitsune-sama will also register for the training?]

[Nope, i will not join… since i’m weak]

[i see…  then good luck with your job]

Kitsune turns his back after hearing Mia’s word. and while checking the map, he left through the Guild’s door.

◇ ◇ ◇

Mia Tigris, the receptionist looks at Kitsune figure leaving the guild while sighing.

True to his heart judgement, Mia is a popular figure. with just a glance on her blond hair and white and smooth skin, and her charming attitude to the opposite sex, in essence, Mia has a nice personality, as a person she is also a nice character, there is no flaw basically.

When Kitsune met Mia the first time, he obviously didn’t realize that, Mia is a popular girl among the adventurers. there’s many trying to date her. even in the past there’s also many nobles proposing her, but she refused them all and it has since became a legend.

and thus, male’s opinion about her charm is not a strange thing anymore.

that’s why, His coming to her directly without caring about other receptionist made her thought that he is the same as other guys trying to get her.

in opposite, the first word coming out from Kitsune was,

[Big Oppai]

He’s the worst. Mia thought of the possibilities that Kitsune coming to her saying flattering words, making him the same with all other guys, but when she heard Kitsune’s word she felt irritated and ask him to go home politely.

but, her discussion with Kitsune afterwards made her felt that there is a difference in him, that he come with no concealed intention.

True, that when Kitsune saw her breast and said the “sexual harassment” word by calling her big oppai, and she thought that he’s a rude man, but she didn’t felt any ill will from those words. it’s like… Kitsune said those word because she is big breasted, and seems there is no other meaning behind those words.

good or bad, for Kitsune, his spoken word contains no flattery, and not even a “like” feeling towards Mia. therefore, Mia felt a strange connection for Kitsune.

If she remembers back, Kitsune is a true novice though.

without saying that the magic beast and adventurer has ranking and it’s a good thing, what if a rank A mazoku came attacking where adventurer don’t know that magic beast has ranks. for Mia it’s strange that Kitsune heard about it but didn’t ask her about it. he don’t seem to have any thoughts of facing rank A mazoku, since it’s an opponent that wrecks havocs.

[yo MIa, was that a new kid?]

while thinking about Kitsune, suddenly an adventurer came to her. Putting his arm on the counter, and looking at her breast he started talking.

she thought that this person is totally different from Kitsune, and started to serve him professionally as a receptionist.

[that was a person registering as an adventurer]

[oo… and again MIa drew in the attention of man huh.. huh… how lucky to be such a beautiful lady]

[… not really … it’s not like that. then, is there anything i can help you with?]

[hooo such coldness,,, what you can help me with?? it’s not such an important help…, so hows today? can we get something to eat once your job is done?]

[i apologize but i cannot… since there is some work to do after]

this person is E ranked adventurer named Geo Grease. he is a trash with a sole passion for woman and sake, and of course, breast. he took many magic beast subjugation job in this guild, and are good at it though he always said his Jitsuryoku is not enough. He is often tyrannical and arrogant to people around him.

Lately, he seems to chase Mia, he visits her everyday.

[aaaa…. don’t say it like that! it’s alright…. just for a short while]

[i must decline … didn’t i say so already?]

[hehehe, don’t think of this as something bad, ok?? … just a short meal..]

For Mia that always reply professionally, Geno is a person that is always persistent. While feeling annoyed, Mia organizes her documents. using a pen to write something, so that she doesn’t have to look at Geno.

But oblivious to Mia’s obvious rejection, suddenly Geno stretched his rugged hand to reach her hand.

[Cmon it is fun… let’s go?]

[!?]

with an even lower voice than before, Geno grab Mia’s hand. it’s the same as Kitsune earlier, but this time the difference is his using his power to hold her without any intention to let go.

Mia unconsciously look at Geno because of it. when she raise her head, all she saw is Geno’s vulgar smile. and even though she pulls her grabbed hand, there is a clear difference of strength between them. she can’t let go at all.

[okk? let’s go?]

from his tone, no is not an answer.

Mia lowers her vision while gritting her teeth listening Geno’s word. to her, Geno will not let go of her hand unless she agrees to go with him.

the other adventurer that saw this kept their silent since Geno is a rank E adventurer. the other receptionist is also looked afraid. they’re not even trying to help.

[un,,,,]

in this situation, Mia can only think to accept Geno’s request. it’s the best way for her. though whether Geno will follow his promise to just let go of her hand and let her go safely is highly doubtful, this is making Mia restless. Mia thought that if she somehow wriggles her hand she might break loose, but there’s no distance covered at all.

and then,

[Mia chaaaann, i can’t understand this map at all?!!]

in front of her Kitsune who just left came back. aside from that there is a tense atmosphere building around Geno. he didn’t seem to like this.

when seen, Kitsune brought the paper with map that Mia just drew. on the paper it’s not clear whether it’s a map, or a child’s doodle. The other adventurers and receptionist thought “ah …. again…”

Mia is a very stupid person for drawing maps. all the new adventurer will be attracted by her looks, but will also return the maps she draws. and they know that Mia is really stupid when drawing something. to this Guild, it’s a common thing.

but the problem right now is not that. Geno that felt Kitsune are crossing the line by just barging in irritates him. He stares at the approaching Kitsune.

[what…? whats with the atmosphere here… seems tense?]

[Kitsune san, look at that! it’s flirting! Mia is flirting! na]

[what…? with that guy? with that kind of face?]

some adventurers that heard Kitsune’s word laughed very hard. if you look at it carefully, other adventurer is also shaking their shoulder holding it in. those caught laughing just lowered their heads.

Mia’s expression showed that she thought Kitsune’s stupid and her eyes looks rolling around.

[but even so, doesn’t she look like she’s in trouble na? then we should help her to increase our friendship points!]

[huh? don’t wanna… that guy seems very strong..? i’ll lose with just 1 hit you know…]

[But even if you lose it’s ok right… the important thing is you helped her right?!]

Kitsune seemed unenthusiastic with Finia’s words, and of course Finia was heard by other surrounding adventurers. Even Mia heard that. For MIa it is same though, that Kitsune will end up with failure, and Kitsune can’t read the atmosphere at all.

Kitsune that felt all of this is a bother started to walk out and he locked eyes with her. Her face is saying to help her as much as possible, but he averted his eyes shamelessly.

Aaaa…, Kitsune san! why did you do that!!! you were supposed to nod!!]

[Seems i have a runny nose…. you got some paper?]

[Not THATTTTT!!!]

He really can’t read the atmosphere. and since he really do have a runny nose he tried searching for tissue, but unconsciously used the paper on his hand which is Mia’s drawn map.

[Kitsunes san is the worst!! that map was drawn for you with effort became your tissue?? is that usual for you?]

[Oh, is that so..]

[Then as an apology, go and help Mia chan! come on!, shooo]

[i think this and that is a different thing we’re talking about]

[If you helped Mia chan, then you can hold her breast as you like right?]

[Yosh! ok.. that big oppai is mine]

[Give him a hard slap na! grew the relationship please!]

Seems Kitsune and Finia has decided to help Mia.

But, Mia felt that their careless. Kitsune just a beginner that has just finished registering and only a H rank adventurer, it’s impossible to fight Geno, a rank E adventurer with good Jitsuryoku. it’s just plain impossible for him.

Honestly, if possible she would like it to be finished by just Kitsune being toyed around by Geno, and only herself became the victim.

Even though he said some sexual harassment to her, but Mia just can’t forgive herself if somebody else is hurt only for helping her.. She is just a nice person.

[Kit, Kitsune sama it’s ok…… i’m fine really]

[really? Finia chan… Mia said she’s fine]

[Hah? ….. then it’s meaningless huh]

[yup]

MIa told that to Kitsune who’s coming to help her. She felt disappointed by how easy he gave up.

——– WOULD YOU GET IT FOR ONCEE!!!!!

the heart of the adventurers united for a moment.

[Ah, sorry… can i ask the map for this job?]

[eh… oh ok…. fine]

Kitsune asked the next counter receptionist, and she started to draw it.

Somehow the situation became complicated, the adventurer inside the guild is not even moving. seems this is on everyone’s mind aside from Kitsune and Finia.

———-……. whats with this condition..

Then after Kitsune received the map, he went to exit the guild… when suddenly Geno said loudly.

[hahahahahaha! whats with this guy… ain’t he’s a coward! as an adventurer, won’t you fight me? hahahahahaha!!!!]

Words coming out of him was abuse to Kitsune. nobody else stopped that laugh and provocation. nope, none at all.

[oioi, the coward… are you referring to me?]

Everybody was surprised since Kitsune smiled and cut his word.

Kitsune turns around and face him, with an eerie aura but by no means was weak looking. it’s making Geno uncomfortable with Kitsune.

[I’m looking for a runaway pet right now…. Senpai will help me as a senior adventurer ok]

[ha…?]

Even though his emitting an eerie aura, but the words coming out of him was out of expectation. it’s a weak keywords. looking for pets, asking support. no matter what this kind of job doesn’t need support. it puts Geno into confusion.

[Then,,, oji-san… how old are you?]

[ha?? 32 years old.. problem with that??]

[with that age you’re still flirting, aren’t you just a hentai oji-san?]

[haa..??]

[how to say this… first of all, you are not suitable, with Mia chan. you have to know your limit… from your appearance…. age… and you’re still flirting?? did i say the right words? you’re getting this?

If you really are like that then maybe there’s a hole in your head. honestly how big is your confidence? even if i have a huge jitsuryoku, i think, i don’t want to be an adult like you… from the start, the thought that you can flirt with Mia is already a miracle right? what makes you think you have a chance?. even for just a little… if you think you can court her… you better cancel those thoughts…]

Kitsune says things as he likes. you can see Geno’s face getting redder by every words… he stand at the blue line. wanting to slash…. oh no… wanted to “strike”.

the adventurers around saw GEno’s condition but Kitsune still looked talkative like he was mold covered buddha statue, very calm… not bubbling from his heart.

[in other words…. what were you trying to say….]

[well…]

[still talking about me]

[A—- sorry. didn’t mean to!!]

Geno screamed, cutting Kitsune’s words. He let go of MIa’s hand and walk towards him. His face are red, his artery seems to bulge on his face, well he seems to wanted to give Kitsune a “strike” (A/N this whole strike thing seems baseball reference… dunno never played baseball)

Kitsune seems to have realized that Geno is losing it. Restlessly he touched his cheek with a cold sweat.

[eh…ah… that… if you look at it closely… you’re handsome you know… yes…. soo..]

[DOONNTTTTT KID WITH MEEEEE]

[—-bugggggg!?]

Geno walked towards Kitsune and launched a hard punch to him. of course with a different in experience, Kitsune that have almost zero experience can’t dodge such hit. the punch landed squarely on his face and Kitsune was thrown back.

at the same time with a scream, Kitsune’s body was thrown to the table’s and chairs behind him. he flew to the wall, and dropped there.

[AAAAAAA!! what the hell with this shit! Cih…. enough…. i lost my appetite]

Then, maybe because he punched Kitsune, his heart felt a bit better, though he’s still upset but he looked calm again. But with that, seems he also lost the will to take Mia, and left the Guild just like that.

Everyone in the guild felt relieved. the felt relieved since Kitsune was the victim, and Geno has left.

[aaa Finia chan… with this, will my relationship with Mia really improve?]

After that, Kitsune that earlier was down and couldn’t even blink started to stand up and while looking for help he talked like that to Finia. of course everybody there looked at him.

[it’s ok!!! with this you can hold those big breast as much as you like right!!]

[really? will Mia chan really allow me to do that?]

[Maybe!]

[Then why don’t we try to ask then…. Mia chaa~nn~ please let me touch your oppai!]

Kitsune talked loudly about touching her breast while walking towards her which is a distance away. while he did that, right now what’s in face of him is Mia’s cold stare.

Mia chan thought of what to do with Kitsune’s statement. even though she managed to be saved from Geno thanks to Kitsune, he still thought on how and what is needed to thank him. honestly, she doesn’t want to allow Kitsune to touch her breast as thanks. lots of concern is stirring up her mind.

[Mia chan??]

[ee~to… actually you may not… bu..but… at the very least i would like to thank you]

[cannot huh….. o well… Finia chan, do we beg?]

[If it’s just my breast, you can touch them!]

[Sorry, i only want her breast…. touching yours is a bit too much]

[hah……!?]

After hearing Mia’s refusal, Kitsune puts a disappointed look while returning Mia’s high heel. Finia got closer and stick her chest to Kitsune. seeing that, Kitsune look at Finia seriously.

in other words he had no intention to touch hers and there is no satisfaction from it. even though he could do it, but then he would feel like he’s a scum.(T/N well… you know… flat chested and fat oriented is an opposing religion i guess)

after that, relaxing his shoulder, Kitsune and Finia left the guild again. Mia that saw Kitsune’s back pulls him, but there’s no sound coming out of her.

as to why she’s holding him… she herself doesn’t understand… and also, her interest to Kitsune is getting bigger since the first time they met.

  3. Firstly, I sincerely thank you your work translating this into a language I can read. Please don’t take this the wrong way, but your english syntax and word choice are making measurable improvement.
    Out of curiosity, why do you do this? Fan translation has got to be one of the most abused hobbies. People who pay you nothing complain about the gift of your time.

    • just a way of giving back to other translator that have helped me reading thigns i can’t. and i got my friend yuychan to translate from japanese to our native language, and i am retranslating it to english. so do mind the slow progress. as to syntax and all, not that easy to follow proper english grammar i guess, especially for fantasy settings… as opposed to my daily business english nature and vocabs.. but thanks for your support!!

      • English grammar and syntax can be difficult because it’s mildly psychotic. Unlike most oriental and Continental European languages, English is not a single language but a linguistic history of various conquests overlaid with a pseudo intellectual veneer of Greek and Latin. Business English has at least been simplified to a minor extent.
