Chapter 35: The Determined Flame (Misunderstanding)

“…that was a surprise.”

Flame resistance 10, Magic resistance 10.

For me, the flame magic only dealt a little damage, even though it surprised me. It only felt like an unpleasant heat from a summer wind passed by. 

Since it felt hot, even with two maximum tolerance skills, it probably is magic of considerable power, but … what on earth are you planning?
“You’re okay, Argento!” 
“Neguseo, please stand down for a bit.” 
“Well… are you sure?” 
“Don’t you know my ability?” 
“…I know.”

Neguseo turns and runs away. 

We can see each others’ ability somehow thanks to contract-of-blood. If Neguseo was hit by that flame, he would have become a streak of cherry-blossom in the blink of an eye.

Ah, he’s running faster.

There is a difference in acceleration from when he followed up with me.

Fluffy-mane-like-sleeping-bed got away as I see.

His max speed, I may not outrun him now if he runs seriously. Let’s worry about that later if he challenges me to a race again.

“Muu…… did my clothes burn?”
The clothes I got from Xeno become ash.

Clothing was not included in the items I got in the forest. There were clothes, but there is not any clothes for children like me. 

Naturally speaking, that’s normal. Ordinary poachers wouldn’t bring children with them, so other than tools, they only have their daily necessities. So even though I have a stove and a pot, I could not find childrens clothes.

“So, I’m naked again… well, please come out.”

Arge 1

Would you even attack blankets? I will try not to think about it for now.

Coming from the direction I spoke, a few meters away from me, ash is blown away, a gust of wind gently stroking my cheek, stinging my skin.

At the center of that wind there’s a girl. 

First thing that stuck out to me were her ears. When I look carefully at them, I can see they’re animal’s ears, gold with tea mixed shades, reminding me of fox. From there, I see fluffy long hair in the same mix of colors.

As my eyes wander down, I could see large yellow eyes with vertically elongated pupils, similar to cats. But since fox’s eyes are shaped like a cat’s eyes, even though it is a canine, I think fox is correct as well. 
I can not see her butt because we’re facing each other, but I can confirm that there are two elongated fox tails.

“… a fox lolita?”  (in original mean fox little girl)

In a nutshell, she is a two tailed Kitsune.  A human-like creature with fox ears and many tails.

Looking at her features, other than fox parts, her age seems to be the same or less than my own. Rather than calling her a girl, loli may suit her better? 

Looking at her clothes, her neck is covered by a metal collar. 
Although there is no chain on the collar, it’s still terrible to put on her small body. Rather than a accessory, it’s obviously used to restrain her. 
She’s wearing Japanese clothes, a Kimono, parts of which are torn, mostly around the arms. The short kimono covered, thin and healthy, feet peculiar to children, that showed off her thighs.

Her shape gave off the impression of a slave, I could tell she had been treated poorly.
Perhaps she was hiding in the ashes, ascertaining our approach. 

Although the dress is dreadful, the dirt seemed to have blown off by the magic wind, so I can tell her skin and hair are very beautiful. Which made the remaining stains extraordinary conspicuous.

“…I’ve never heard of such a strong demon.”

Her reverberating voice matches her lovely figure, a high pitched voice. 

It seems like I’ve been misunderstood. According to Oswald-kun, vampires are demi-human beings, which is a different category from demons.

“Because, I’m not a demon?”

“I’m sorry… I can not trust you… it’s an order, so …!”

…There are many people who refuse to talk.

Oswald-kun, then Chrome, and now the fox loli in front of me. A similar trend has continued three times now and it seem like in her eyes, I’m a scary monster. She points to the sky with her index finger; at the same time, I feel something like a sprinkle on my cheek.

“Well, is this a magical force?”

It is the third time I’ve had this feeling.

If you feel the clear power repeatedly over a short period of time, you’ll come to understand it. Chrome’s magic is a magical power of the difference kind. So I am able to feel, pretty much, how that magic is used.
The magical power concentrated on her fingertips let off a red glow.
While it looks warm, it’s not an easy going thing; I had a feeling that it would burn this area into ash again.

“Earlier, I only used a little power, I will attack seriously from now on!”

“Ha, is that so?”

“Fox Fire – Hōsenka !”  (狐火 – 鳳仙火: Kitsunebi – Hōsenka)

I hear the word ‘Fox-fire’ she really gave the impression ‘ah, she is a fox after all.’

A flame ball flashed on her fingertip. At the size of an adults face, she released it at me. The flame divides into many pieces before reaching me, resembling small seeds; grains of flames like rain flying toward me.

“Wow, It’s hot!”

While the flame stuck on my skin is greatly diminished by my tolerance I still receive some damage. I feel like hot oil from a deep frying splashed on my skin.

I shrink a little. After all, it is quite powerful fire magic.
“That’s hot… what are you doing?”
“Eee!”
“What are you going to do if you burned me? That’s terrible.”
“Ah, a…. So-sorry?”  (Yes, good loli, you know to apologize)

“Yes, I forgive you because you apologized.”
“Ah, thank goodness, I’m glad… wait, why do I need to apologize!?”
(because you are good girl at heart, you just don’t get teaching properly, so you don’t know our MC isn’t a monster)

“Isn’t it normal to apologize if you do bad things?”
“So course I’d understand something like that … Oh geez! ‘Beast-division, sprout’.”
Her two tails moved like a wave; then after a moment, one tail separated from her. Her tail, separating like a lizard’s tail, changes shape dramatically.
First it swells up, limbs grow, then clothes, and a collar forms. In a few seconds, her tail become an exact duplicate of her.
Two people who looked exactly the same in both taste and look. They shook their single tails of the same length at each other and held hands towards my direction. Their movements are completely synchronized.

“You became twin-chan.”

“Now, I will go at you with double magic power!”

“Would you please stop when you are satisfied?”

“Double-whirlwind-sickle!”  (ふたえかまいたち: Futa e Kamaitachi!)

The atmosphere and the scenery distorts. Her spell cut the surroundings and quickly burned them to charcoal, a twin blazing-wind-blade approaches me that can be visually observed.

Since there is no tolerance for wind attributes, it may hurt like get hit by a whip. I do not want to get hurt, so I will put up a little defense.

“Please, Wind-san.”

I point my finger at the twin girls that are holding hands. Then speak my key words.
The wind I created has no cutting power unlike hers. If their wind is a verbal syllabary, my wind is like a gust of wind.
Still, the winds have the same nature. The flying blade surely receives the influence of my magic, and when it reaches my body.

“…It tingles a bit.”

All I feel is a dull pain, like when you clean your body using a bad towel. Although it’s unpleasant, there’s not much pain, unlike when I got hit by her Hōsenka.
The two foxes open their small mouths with a pokān face as they is they’ve seen a UFO. Though I don’t know if UFOs would appear in this world though. (pokān: is an surprise face with round and white eyes, see translator corner)
““Why are you unscathed …?!”” They yell in unison.

“Because, I have high magic resistance… Are you satisfied?”
“…Aren’t you a demon?”
“I am not a demon?”
““But there is no way anyone could be so calm after receiving my magic directly!””
“No, I am not a human, but I’m not a demon …”
““…what do you mean by that?””
“I’m a demi-human like you are, I’m Argento vampear, a vampire. Nice to meet you, Collar no-pan”
(No-pan is japanese short for no panty)

““Collar no-pan!””
“Is no-pan collar better?”
““At least, take away the no-pan part!””

No, because I saw it when you use the wind magic.

Well, I do not want to listen to people’s story. But Fox girl, can you to listen to my story.

      • It’s a funny game. And because main character Neptune is way to free spirit, the game become a funny joke itself. And the game is never become serious, there are 4 main heroine.
        Neptune (Sega Neptune console)
        Noire (Playstation 3 and 4 console)
        Vert (Xbox 360 and one console)
        Blank (Wii and Wii U console).

        *Neptune is always center character, she is a way to free spirit to the point annoying.
        *Noire is the most beautiful hereoine, a Tsundere. she is always serious in everything, people idol and respect her but they are also think they don’t suit becone her friend => she doesn’t have any friend => Neptune always make fun of Noire is a lone wolf.
        *Vert is a Blonde NEET, because Xbox is biggest console, her chest is also reknown as thunder tits.
        *Blank is a Yandere loli, normally she is a quiet character though. She is a book worm.

        If you don’t mind the joke humor, it will be a fun game.

        It is a base turn RPG game.

  1. There are sentences that can be put into better words…
    I wanted to say I want or can proofread but that will reduce the time of release and it is not like im really good at it too… i just feel like kinda wanna help but it is probably unneeded so…
    And I totally appreciate how fast releases are that I dont want to shorten it. The translation is still understandable so it actually does not matter that much soooooooooo i will just say thank you for the translations… really. I love this series and I actually like your TNs and random pics added :3
    Keep up the good work and I can see you enjoy working on it too… which is the most important part of translating novels… oops

  2. I took a spin at editing this chapter, mostly because I had some free time. If you like how I do things, I’ll try editing some of the earlier stuff I guess.

    Well, I do not want to listen to people’s story. But Fox little girl, I want you to listen to my story.
    ================================================

    T.N:
    1.) in original mean fox little girl
    2.) 狐火 – 鳳仙火: Kitsunebi – Hōsenka
    3.) Yes, good loli, you know to apologize
    4.) because you are good girl at heart, you just don’t get teaching properly, so you don’t know our MC isn’t a monster
    5.) ふたえかまいたち: Futa e Kamaitachi!
    6.) fox loli and her copy said at the same time
    7.) No-pan is japanese short for no panty

    ED:
    1.) ‘I agree with you.’ sounds a bit too awkward in that context.
    2.) I feel like those words should be chained together.
    3.) ‘Let ‘s make a decision if he is challenged for the next game.’ was hard to read, I couldn’t quite make out what it meant, so I went with that.
    4.) “I got naked after all, is not it … … well, please come out” felt awkward.
    5.) I have no idea what the sentence, “Do you have to misunderstand it even on blankets?” means in that context, so I removed it.
    6.) Whole description felt redundant and awkwardly ordered. So I re-arrange a lot, while trying to stick to the same tone and pacing. Not sure what ‘fist eye’ means though, so I assumed that just meant large.
    7.) It sounded like Arge was going to name the species, but then a word was skipped or something, so I put that in.
    8.) Since “” is being used for conversation, adding it to the narration would just confuse the reader, so I switched them over to ‘’
    9.) Some things can be implied in other languages that has to be outright said in English. So might as well add that on to the end, rather then leave it as a translation note.

      • Now to fix my own typo’s:

        the magic of flame -> the magic flame
        Argento !!” -> Argento!”
        if he run seriously. -> if he runs seriously.
        sting my skin -> stinging my skin
        her age of seems to -> her age seems to
        smaller compare to my own -> less than my own
        use a little power, -> used a little power,
        I heard the word -> I hear the word
        my skin are greatly diminished -> my skin is greatly diminished
        shook one tail of the same length -> shook their single tails of the same length
        I do not know if UFOs -> Though I don’t know if UFOs
        ““Why are you unscathed …?!”” -> ““Why are you unscathed …?!”” They yell in unison.
        “”… What do you mean, by that? “” -> ““…what do you mean by that?””

        Errors I noticed your main post:

        “That was a suprise “ -> “…that was a surprise.”

        You removed all of my ED things, which is fine, as they were meant for you. But you removed all of your own Translator notes which were meant for everyone else, except for the T.N numbers I did so that I could sort through the grammar easier. Which is a problem, since you don’t have my number key at the bottom of the main post.

        • Well, I think that (ED number X) isn’t (Editor Note) so I delete it.
          The whole chapter is your hardword editing so I don’t think left (ED number X) will have any meaning.
          And I think left Translator Note right after the word is better than left it in the last part of chapter.

          Like

      • More errors, and awkward sentences I spotted and re-did:

        only deal a little damage, -> only dealt a little damage,

        felt hot even with -> felt hot, even with

        what on earth are you intending-> what on earth are you planning?

        “… I know.” -> “…I know.”

        Do you have to misunderstand it even on blankets? -> Would you even attack blankets?

        “… … I have not heard of such a strong monster.” -> “…I’ve never heard of such a strong demon.” (Since their used interchangeably, to avoid reader confusion, I’d stick to demon, since that’s been the most used.)

        It’s very obviously used to restrain her, rather then being an accessory. -> Rather than a accessory, it’s obviously used to restrain her.

        “I am not a demon?” -> “Because, I’m not a demon?”

        …… There are many people who do not want to talk. -> …There are many people who refuse to talk.

        What it is warm, it’s not -> While it looks warm, it’s not

        “…I feel a little tingling.” -> “…It tingles a bit.”
