It’s a gacha madness.
I’ll include FGO’s meme on this chapter because it somewhat related.
The end of killing spree
The final day.
As the date changes the UR unit Distribution rate double-up campaign banner shows up on the GC top page. It’s pretty severe that the event is for one day only. I’d be raging if there was no notification for this 10 days ago.
“Fiiinnally, it’z finally ooover…”
“You did well Noru. Now get some well deserved rest for the time being.”
“Oh yaaay. Uu,uu… It was backbreaking.”
Exceeding the target of 500 pieces, 506 manastones were obtained. Noru worked really hard.
After somehow recovering from “that”, she managed to pull through in the end. Makes me want to hug her tight and give her headpats. Noru cried due to how happy she was.
We managed to get to our target number after hunting to the very limit before the sun fully set today. We are now relaxing at the inn for the remainder of the day. There are just afew more hours before the campaign ends, time to start rolling.
“Now then, time to begin the Heihachi Carnival.”
“You’re still saying that Heihachi Carnival thing.”
Having finished her bath, Noru is rolling around on her bed. And of course, she is wearing her eye mask.
In a position that is visible to her, I take out my smartphone and open up the GC gacha page.
“Alright, let’s go!”
With great vigor, I tapped the 11 consecutive gacha button.
A treasure box is displayed. And the treasure box turns, silver, gold. It stopped at gold.
【R Food, R Potion x10, R Panacea, R Iron Armor, R Iron Shoes, SR Excali-bar, SR Pan lid, R Sleeping Bag, R Stuffed Toy, SR Philosopher’s stone, SR Staff of Compassion】
“Well well well, the first shot. This is still the first shot.”
“This one felt iffy.”
Not exactly a good start. Even Noru thinks this looks iffy. Excali-bar you again. Another stuffed toy too… this feels like harassment!
There’s still 9 rolls left. One UR should appear at the very least. I tapped the 11 consecutive roll gacha again.
A treasure box gets displayed. And the treasure box turns, silver, gold, white. It stopped at white.
【R Potion x10, R Iron Sword, R Iron Spear, SSR Adamantite Armor, R Food, R Chrome Armor, R Knife, R Scissors, R Supplement, SR Nike’s Shoes, R Ice Rod】
“W-well, this is still the second time?”
“A SSR appeared. That’s something to be happy about.”
Hmm, looks like a shift in the current is at hand. A SSR armor did come out. And another pair of Nike’s shoes too.
This may be a sign that the flow of luck is here. I’m gonna end up rapid firing.

“Ah,aaaaahh!? The heck is this!?“
I crumbled on the floor (OTZ). What is this, y u do dis. Is this a nightmare? If I’m dreaming, I want to wake up.
The results are way below expectations. Something like this… I’ll never accept this!
“C-calm down Okura-dono!”
“Bu- ,that’s ,you! Look at this!? 99 times and this kind of result, oi, look.”
“T-there’s still one last roll remaining! You have my support Okura-dono!”
Noru puts her hand on my shoulder and cheers me up. But this… this is just harsh.
I have worked hard for 10 days just for this gacha. Noru also helped and this is the kind of result we get. This looks so miserable, how can I face her when she helped out so much.
“Come on RNGesus… Come on!!”
I use up the last of the magic stones, and tap the 11 consecutive gacha.
A treasure box is displayed. The treasure chest turns silver, gold, white, aaaaaand―― no rainbow. The result was white.
【R Food, R Transceiver, R Beacon, SR Excali-bar, SR Pot Lid, R Stuffed Toy, SSR Invisible Mantle, R Lamp, R Supplement, SR Nike’s Shoes, R Magic Potion x10】
Something snapped inside of me. I lose the strength in my legs, and my whole body started trembling. My hands trembled so much I dropped the smartphone, losing blood pressure in my eyes, Noru started to look all flabby through my eyes.
Why, what went wrong? Did I not have enough faith? Was it bad that I didn’t divide the manastones more?
“Oh, that work, all our hard work, in an instant… This is just too much, why RNGesus y u do dis…”
Large droplets of tears fall from my eyes. Frustrating, this is so frustrating. If this was back in my original world, my smartphone would have been eradicated from the face of this earth right about now.
That was how frustrated, and miserable I felt. What were those ten days for? Just…. what was the point in rolling this gacha. Give me my money back.
On my head which was rolling about on the floor, Noru puts her hand on and pats it.
“Okura-dono, it’s alright. Though it is regrettable for this time, we can just work hard for the next time. I’ll help out too… But I don’t want to hunt that way again…”
So this is what a person’s warmth(kindness) feels like. It feels like my heart scarred by the gacha is being healed. I couldn’t really tell what she was saying for the second half, but I totally agree with what she said in the first half.
That’s right, we can just work hard again. Time to save up again, we can roll again after we save up some more.
“By the way Okura-dono, are you not going to roll with the 6 Manastones remaining?”
“I doubt we’ll get anything worthwhile in a single roll…”
I got up now that I recovered. Noru picks up the smartphone that I dropped on the floor and hands it to me.
500 manastones have been whiffed. And 6 remain. A single gacha roll needs 5 stones. Doing a single roll now is like pouring water on a heated rock.
“Then-then, would you mind if I have a go at it?”
“Ah, go ahead. Noru worked hard this time, I should have let you to do some of the 11 rolls earlier. Sorry.”
She says she wants to roll the gacha, as she flings my arms up and down.
Well, it’s alright I guess. She is the one who worked the hardest. I’m feeling sorry, for getting all depressed after whiffing all of it.
“Oh no, I’m satisfied with just rolling once. Now then!”
Noru taps the smartphone, and stares at the screen. Haha, she looks so adorable doing this.
Even I had such a moment in the past… Doing a single gacha roll, then getting all excited and what not at what’s going to appear. Over time, I got fueled by target firing and became someone who spent cash without second thoughts…
“O, Okura-dono! Rainbow! A rainbow appeared!”
Noru shouts out dramatically, while she smacked my shoulders.
Are you kidding me!? A UR on a single roll! This is way beyond simple beginner’s luck!?
The treasure box displayed on the screen gave off a rainbow shine. And, the treasure box opens to reveal its contents.
I embraced Noru, due to how overjoyed I was. As we are not wearing any armor now, our bodies totally made contact with each other.
However, there are no underlying motives. I was just so happy that she is around, and hugged her with those thoughts only.
“You went and did it! You have my love for this, I love you!”
“Eh, ah, w-what are you saying!? C-can you let go of me already! Ow-ouch, it hurts~”
I kept rubbing my cheeks against hers, over her eye mask. I hugged Noru like a koala for the time being, until my elation settled down.
