Translator’s Note:

I don’t think the picture will disturb you anyway. You can just scroll down.

And I use it to divide the part where we change place and time.

In Original Raw, we only have a wall of text.

Some Author didn’t even add *** or — between those part to divide them.

And again, a lot of science, theory and logic. Good thing, it isn’t the whole chapter like before. There’s some comedy and action.


Mile Chapter 83: Battle with Wyvern: Good prowess

anime-trees-art-wallpaper-hd-1080p-2329.jpg
Kingdom – Forest Village – a Hill nearby

And the next morning.

One cow was taken to a small hill a little away from the village and and was tied to a tree.

Of course, the『Red Oath』accompanies it.

If all the livestock were hidden and 『Red Oath』stood on the hill.

The girls will not be able to attract the Wyvern.

Also to avoid the unlikely event that Wyvern attack and remember the taste of the human flesh, it would be serious. The villager insisted to provide a cattle.

Perhaps, they are worring for the four young girls.

If there’s a more delicious prey to eat than humans, the Wyvern will not grasp the girls up but grasping the cattle.

Although the villagers didn’t believe in the success of the subjugation, just imagining the young girls being grabbed by the Wyvern and fly away, losing one of their cattle is still better.

It was a good villager who think so.

Four girls quietly wait for the Wyvern after the villagers, who tied the cow to the trees, came home.

Because it comes flying from the distance from the sky, it seems that there will be no problem even if they are a bit noisy, but somehow no-one is talking, “no talking when ambushing” is habit as hunter or something like that.

In fact, this time, a young man is hiding at some distance and watching the girls. If the young girls are seriously injured, this youngster will let the village know immediately as soon as the Wyvern flies away. This youngster really love the braveness of the young cute girls.

This is a brave young man at the bar who can’t allow the cute young girls who are stubborn with the honor to face danger. But he can’t stop the girls, so at the least he wants to help the girls as soon as possible.

 

Mile has confirmed the surroundings with exploratory magic, of course noticing the existence of the youngman.

However, she thought that it would be a witness as a villager representative, and she thought that he was probably the contact person to rescue themselves quickly if anything  happen.

Besides, even if she notice a scene with some problems, she was so excited about the the Wyvern fight that she will have for the first time in her life and thought it wasn’t a big deal to worry about a villager watching.

It isn’t something you can believe unless a large number of people make the same testimony, such as a stupid story that the villagers have witnessed, or a person who is trustworthy.

Even if he told other villagers like “I saw a terrible battle”, it will only pass through with a bitter smile.

That’s it, it’s harmless. No problem to leave him there.

“There it is!” (Maevis)

Maevis discovers the Wyvern first.

Since this Wyvern is already flying high, there isn’t a problem about visibility.

The three girls looking at the direction Maevis pointing to, there’s certainly a black dot appears and gradually become bigger.

“…that?” (Mile)

“what’s wrong?” (Rena)

Rena think it’s strange that Mile who surpassed Maevis about scouting, so she’s surprised why Mile didn’t notice the Wyvern at the beginning.

“No, that Wyvern, looks like it already have the prey …” (Mile)

When they look again, the wyvern is really grabbing something like a cow with both feet.

“Strange … so, today It already hunted prey in another place, I wonder if it change schedule to attack this village …?” (Rena)

Rena muttered so, but in that case the Wyvern will come straight here.

And as it approached the hill considerably, the Wyvern lowered its altitude and disappeared beyond the grove.

“Huh…?” (Rena + Mile + Pauline + Maevis)

The girls were surprised at the Wyvern’s unexpected behavior.

But right after, the Wyvern appears again. And as they look at it again, the Wyvern didn’t grasp a cow but changed to a log that is about 30 cm in diameter, the Wyvern is flying toward the girls.

“Here it comes” (Rena)

“Ouuu!” (Mile + Pauline + Maevis)

Three girls responding to Rena’s voice and ready themselves.

The Wyvern seemed to have judged 『Red Oath』as enemy from the beginning.

Perhaps, from clothing and equipment, the girls would have been regarded as the kind of people who would attack it, not villagers.

It is in attack mode from the beginning.

A log that would be a fallen tree, was grabbed by its both legs.

The strategy that the Wyvern chose is dive-bombing.

The tactic with hit accuracy that is higher than horizontal bombing. Even it’s a heavy burden on the body, but the effect is high if the wyvern can endure it.

The drop bombardment at an angle of 30 degrees or more will be called dive-bombing. And with gravity, the log is still accelerating even with the wind pressure.

The wyvern’s opponents are just humans, it isn’t necessary to increase the speed so much.

On the contrary, if it fly slowly, you can let the opponent have enough time to escape in the end. And it was a lot more fun to spread the fear to the humans.

But this time, the Wyvern drops the log with high speed. There was no time to escape.

And Mile judged from the Wyvern’s familiar appearance that this was the “usual way of fighting” that the Wyvern is good at. So it use this method to any hunter it encounter.

Mile gives out instructions immediately. Other girls heard it and decided to obey Mile’s instructions even though they were only half confident.

Normally Mile always stand behind as supporter or listen to other’s command, but when the girls think about it again, her magical abilities and various knowledge is over the top. The three girls always make fun of her for being an idiot or lack common sense but that “Idiot” doesn’t mean like stupid.

Mile can’t read the air, and has no common sense but her power, speed, magic, technique is strongest ever.

In other world, that “idiot” means “genius”. Just like a Judo genius will be called Judo idiot .etc.

And the Wyvern approached, but the four girls are just standing still, waiting for Mile’s instruction.

And when Mile thought that the Wyvern was entering its final stage of throwing, she shouted.

“Now, run…” (Mile)

The four girls rush with the full force to run away from the Wyvern.

The Wyvern think its plan was successful.

Its prey always runs so it only need to throw the log, rolls and rolls and crushes the escaped prey from behind.

The wyvern’s master taught him this method, he already practiced it many times and the effect was confirmed.

From the back of the prey that trying to escape … Now is the time to drop the log!

“Flip!” (Mile)

Even Mile is running away, she’s still checking the back with a her magic. She shouted out loud right at the moment the Wyvern release the log.

The four girls stopped right away and change their direction to the Wyvern with full power.

The logs had been already thown away from the Wyvern’s legs flew beyond the heads of the girls.

“Now. Attack!” (Mile)

And with the next command of Mile, Rena and Pauline ready their attack magic that was chanted while running away.

“… Flame explosion!” (Rena)

“… Hydrogen bomb!” (Pauline)

Gyū n! (SFX)

While being surprised, the Wyvern was desperately trying to twist his body and the attack magics missed.

“… he’s good” (Mile) 

Their magics missed and she were watching the Wyvern desperately rises its altitude. Mile folded her arms and spoke.

“This will not do! If you want to do anything, do it fast before it ran away!” (Rena)

“It’s okay, it didn’t take any damage yet, he isn’t one to run away with just this.” (Mile)

As if the Wyvern had listened to Mile’s words that answered Rena, the Wyvern took a sufficient altitude, then began turning in the sky without flying away.

And as usual, Rena scream with her Tsukkomi

“How in the world that you can read the line of thoughts of a demon, but you can’t understand thought of a human” (Rena)


Translator’s Note:

Because people the the hardest to read / understand unlike monster.

You don’t believe me? Try play PVE and PVP you will see how hard PVP is compare to PVE.

    • Pretty horrible analogy imo. PVE isn’t a fight against monsters (magical animals), but a fight with (usually very half-assed) AI with preset patterns.

  1. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    I think the bombing technique is dive bombing. You dive towards the target and drop your bomb or bombs.

    • I think it’s rather a dive bombing technique with a carpet bombing effect. Dive bombing is a technique to increase accuracy of a bomb drop (get as close to a target as possible before pulling out of a dive), but the point of using a rolling log is to increase the area of effect, which is the definition of carpet bombing.

      • Never used skip bombing on land before. Didn’t make the connection. But the wyvern did dive, so it can technically be called dive bombing even if the result is skip bombing.

      • It’s not quite skip-bombing, but that’s the closest parallel. The author is describing the log rolling, which is probably a misunderstanding of how British bouncing bombs worked (they actually were spun-up in the opposite rotation before dropping, so that the back-spin could control precisely when the bomb sank. It was actually a kind of depth charge, to blow up underwater against a dam. See the movie ‘Dam Busters’.) Skip-bombing simply skipped a normal bomb like a stone across the water. But this would be tough to pull off on land, so what the author describes… rolling the bomb… might work better. The ground would have to be just right, and the log perfectly parallel to flat ground though. Otherwise it would go bouncing off in some random direction.
        Sorry. I’m an engineer. I tend to over analyze stuff like this. Hopping off my soap box now.

    • “Its prey always runs so it only need to throw the log, rolls and rolls and crushes the escaped prey from behind.”
      Ricochet Firing (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ricochet_firing) was a tactic used by the French artillery in the Napoleonic Wars. The idea was that cannon balls tended to just bury themselves in the ground, but if you aimed (this is the tricky part!) in front of the enemy soldiers you could “skip” the cannon ball through their formation.
      So skip bombing or ricochet bombing…

      • The grammar seemed to suffer quite a bit this chapter compared to the previous ones.

        That said, I think the change that solu.lovers made was changing “idea” to “line of thought”…and not the “read” in there.

        Me, I would make it along the lines of the following instead: “How in the world is it possible that you can’t understand how humans think, but you’re able to understand the thought process of a demon?”

        It’s possible that it could still be worded in a better way, but it’s a lot easier to understand this way, imo.

        That said…thanks for picking up and translating this series, btw. ^^

  8. Greetings and thanks for the chapter. There aren’t that many corrections for this chapter, but as always I will leave them below

    and was connected to a tree -> and was tied to a tree

    Although the villager didn’t believe in the succeed of the subjugation, just imagining the young girls being grabbed by the Wyvern and fly away, the lost one of their cattle is still better -> Although the villagers didn’t believe in the success of the subjugation, just imagining the young girls being grabbed by the Wyvern and fly away, losing one of their cattle is still better

    It was a good villager to think so -> It was good for the villagers to think so

    Four girls quietly wait for the Wyvern after the villager who connected the cow to the trees came home -> Four girls quietly wait for the Wyvern after the villagers, who tied the cow to the trees, came home

    The strategy that the Wyvern chose is descent bombing. (T.N: I can’t choose the word right but just like bowling, the log would rolling on the ground and attack a wider range) (Dane: Wouldn’t it be dive-bombing?

    Not sure if you agree here but I find it better if we switch it around a bit
    How in the world that you can’t understand thought of a human, but you can read the line of thought of a demon -> How in the world that you can read the line of thoughts of a demon, but you can’t understand thought of a human

  9. Ive heard of some people where pvp is easier than pve for them. Especially in games like dark souls. For me i love new games with pvp, its easier to beat everyone when no one knows of the moves and tactics yet. Thanks for translating this awesome novel.

    “… I will do it, then” (Mile) (やるわね)
    Actually, that phrase (Yaruwane) is more of an applaud to the other party, something akin to “he’s good” because the wyvern is able to avoid the girl’s counterattacks.

  11. Mile can’t read the air, and has no common sense but her power, speed, magic, technique is strongest ever.

    Maybe: “Mile can’t read the AMBIENSE”? Not air. Thanks for translate.
