Chapter 71 – An almost UR kind of thing
Shisuha was sitting happily in her chair with Luna in her grasp, having acquired her after “persuading” me.
Luna was frowning unpleasantly, as she looked at me who “abandoned” her. Scary.
There was no way I could go against Shisuha’s persuasive smile and bloody fist that screamed “Wut, you wanna have a go? Huh?”.
[They almost look like sisters, in a way.]
[They certainly do. Luna, it wouldn’t hurt for you to get along with her(Shisuha).]
[Screw that, it gives me goosebumps just from being treated as sisters with her.]
Looking at Luna who was quietly sitting on Shisuha’s lap, Estel and Noru commented on how the two looked like siblings.
Luna showed blatant scorn when she heard that, she then began attempting to break free from Shisuha’s clutches.
Shisuha appears to be unaffected though, she’s putting too much strength into a hug.
Hーmm… they are both blonde, I guess they do look like siblings? With Luna sitting on her lap and all that. The age gap between them appears a little large though.
[Let go of me already. Or should I just bite you?]
[Go right on ahead. That wouldn’t faze me one bit.]
Losing her patience, Luna bared her fangs in the literal sense. Making warning sounds with her fangs.
I know I’m in no position to say this since I scapegoated her, but I do think she(Shisuha) should let her(Luna) go soon. She’s(Luna) about to reach the limit of her patience.
I looked at Shisuha as I thought of that, with her iron will to not let go regardless of the threats and tightening her grasp on her captive.
A moment later, Luna stopped her warnings and sank her fangs into Shisuha’s muscular upper arm, which was restraining her. It’s more of a nick than a chomp the way it looked.
[Agagaga!? Th, that much won’t――huh?]
[Hrmph, leggo of me already.]
[Oi, Shisuha? What happened?]
Shisuha jolted from the pain of the bite, but did not loosen her hug on Luna.
She didn’t even flinch, must be ‘cause she’s used to pain.
However, something seems to have happened in the short amount of time when she was bitten.
Her arms that were hugging Luna gradually began to loosen, and her body began to slouch onto her chair.
Luna then released the arm that she was biting, and slipped out of Shisuha’s clutches and off her lap.
[Kuuuh…. can’t move… body…]
[It actually took that long to affect you. You’re quite the monster yourself.]
[What did you do?]
Shisuha was groaning, seemingly unable to move her body. Luna, who has escaped, spoke of her captor in an astounded manner.
Her bite probably did something. That “something” is certainly powerful, if it was able to render Shisuha unable to move.
[I can apply various status ailments to what I am biting. I simply paralysed her body this time. She shouldn’t be able to move for a while.]
Luna turned away from the now unmoving Shisuha, to explain what she just did, to the curious Noru.
That’s pretty amazing, being able to inflict various status ailments just from a bite. But, that means she’ll have to bite monsters too if the need arises.
She probably wouldn’t want to bite monsters… I know I wouldn’t even if I was ordered to do so.
[Whew, that’s quite the move Luna-san.]
[――!? H, how are you able to move already!?]
[Well, y’know, I am a Priestess after all.]
2 hands patted onto Luna’s shoulders, who was all but certain of her great escape.
Luna shuddered to the touch, and openly expressed her surprise when she saw Shisuha moving again when she turned around.
Shisuha looked unfazed despite being paralyzed just moments ago.
Curing status ailments is part of her Priestess job descript I suppose… and Luna should’ve been aware of that.
She(Luna) has a sort of careless side too, despite her calm and cold demeanor.
[Shisuha, you really should stop soon. She might end up hating you for real.]
[Uuu… you’re right. But I’ll definitely get along with Luna someday!]
It wouldn’t be a good precedent to overdo something that Luna doesn’t like, shortly after getting summoned. So I stepped in properly this time.
Shisuha finally let go of Luna and backed down, albeit reluctantly, after listening to my warning.
At least she understands what lines to not cross. Luna pats her chest in relief, after being released.
[Heihachi, I’ll thank you for that. But that doesn’t mean I have forgotten about your earlier betrayal.]
[Ugh… sorry about that.]
This is quite the negative first impression for her(Luna)… How did it come to this…
What has happened has happened so let’s move on, there’s something else I’m more interested in……
[That aside, did you suck Shisuha’s blood when you bit her earlier? Is she going to become a vampire…?]
[Nn? Just because I bit her doesn’t mean she’ll turn into a vampire. Besides, I didn’t suck her blood at all. Neither do I want to.]
[Even my blood was rejected… Shocking…]
There’s stuff like the victims turning into vampires themselves, or becoming subservient to the host vampire in fiction, but that’s not the case here.
Luna simply only bit Shisuha, she didn’t suck any blood whatsoever. She must really dislike Shisuha, refusing to even suck her blood.
Shisuha appeared quite sad from hearing that. I’d say she should be happier about not getting her blood sucked… though it’s not hard to imagine her being overjoyed from getting her blood sucked instead.
[Our party has gotten so lively.]
[Indeed… Anyways, are we gonna do the usual equipment distribution too?]
[Right, gotta deck Luna out with gear. … Mmm? Speaking of which, what is Luna’s Job?]
I was supposed to be organizing our equipment as usual, but got delayed by Shisuha’s antics.
She doesn’t have much self control where it counts.
Honestly, she really needs to put in more effort there like I have.
Now that we have settled down, I can proceed with organizing the equipment. However, that led to 1 last question.
I have no idea what Luna’s Job is. Normally a Unit would appear already physically wielding their weapon of choice in some form, but that wasn’t the case for her.
There’s no way she didn’t come equipped with her own UR equipment, so maybe she has it stored somewhere?
[I’m a Vampire.]
[No, that’s your race. I mean, what weapon do you usually use?]
[The Spear. Let me show you.]
Luna pricked the tip of her index finger with her fang, after saying so.
Just when you thought a droplet of blood was going to appear from the now injured fingertip, a magic circle appeared and a crimson spear began to come out starting from the tip.
[Uwao! That’s awesome!]
[So that’s Luna’s weapon! Such a splendid spear!]
[That, it is.]
That’s like, soooo cool! This is the stuff mang! This is every little boy’s wet dream when we talk about magic!
Noru reacted similarly to me, as we watched together. Looks like she also understands the beauty of it.
Luna nodded in satisfaction to our reactions.
The spear she took out is longer than her own height, it had a simple appearance which can be described as “a stick with a pointy end”. It has no unnecessary ornaments.
So she uses a spear… I remember her having ranged attacks too, maybe she throws the spear?
[Ara? Aren’t you supposed to have 1 more piece of UR gear?]
[Fumu, you must mean this.]
Upon hearing Estel’s question, another magic circle like the one she used for the spear appeared on her fingertip, except a black cloak came out instead.
Luna stylishly equips the cloak. It was the type that was fastened around the neck, it was a large cloak that fully covered her up.
It was evidently more impressive than my ragged Sacred Fabric.
[I’m so jelly… You wanna trade that with mine?]
[What’s up with that ragged tablecloth of yours.]
[Oh no you don’t! How could you even think of making Luna-san use that ragged tablecloth!]
When I took out my Sacred Fabric and suggested a trade, Luna had that look of seeing something subjective.
Even Shisuha called it a ragged tablecloth.
I myself think it looks ragged too, but having my only piece of UR gear badmouthed like this stings a tad bit.
[Kuh… L, let’s move on to the other stuff then.]
[We just did our largest number of rolls to date. It would be nice if there were some useful ones among all of them.]
Having finished showing off, Luna keeps her gear.
We got sidetracked a bunch, it’s about time we got to sorting out the new equipment.
We did a whole lot of rolls this time, there should be a decent number of new SSRs.
Hopefully there’s usable stuff.
● LCD Monitor
The latest state of art LCD monitor.
Able to project all sorts of things from the synched Smartphone. As a bonus, it is also compatible with game consoles.
[Onii-san, what’s that?]
[This is something from where I came from. Would be nice if we could do something with it… but we have no game or console for it, so it’s useless for now.]
A monitor supported by a solid platform appeared.
It’s 50 inches-ish? It’s really big.
It can project stuff if I sync it with my smartphone too. But there’s nothing to use this with for now …
[So this is something from Okura-dono’s world.]
[Wait! Anywhere else besides the black frame is fragile! Noru, you might break it, so please don’t!]
[I, I’m not going to break it! That’s just rude!]
Noru approached the unusual object but I stopped her from touching it.
I would feel troubled if this brand spanking new monitor became unusable immediately.
Noru puffed at me angrily, but it couldn’t be helped.
● Board Game Set
Comes with various types of board games.
Perfect for killing time.
Next is the Board Game Set, one of the CompGacha targets.
It was a large box, with various kinds of board games like reversi, shogi, go, diamond game to name afew, inside.
(ED note: google the names if u don’t know wut dey r)
[Oh, this looks quite interesting.]
[So many different types.]
[Muu…. They all look kind of complicated.]
This looks good for killing time. Noru muttered something as she looked at it… Maybe she’s not good with this sort of thing?
Gloves whose power changes according to the wielder’s MP.
That hand of yours will burn red.
A red colored glove as ordinary as can be appeared. It appears to be able to generate heat according to the description?
[It feels like a manly piece of equipment.]
[I guess this for melee use? I might want one if that’s the case.]
[A Priestess who wants melee equipment….?]
Shisuha, who prefers melee combat, showed interest in it. It’s probably better than her current barefisted approach, I get the bad feeling she’s gonna fry her opponent’s face if I give this to her.
(ED note: heat end!)
Luna had a dumbfounded look, as she listened to our exchange. Anybody would feel suspicious at whether Shisuha is really a Priestess, when hearing this exchange for the first time.
● Four-Dimensional Trash Bin
A trash bin. The inside is a four dimensional space so you can dump as much garbage as you want inside.
Please do not dump living things inside.
[What’s the point of making a trash bin four dimensional?]
[If they were going to make something four dimensional, they should have made it a storage box…]
[I guess this counts as a “miss”?]
If it’s a trash bin, I’d appreciate it more if it disintegrated the stuff I throw in it.
So what’s the point of a four dimensional trash bin? I guess it can sort of be used as storage so I’ll leave it at that.
● Food Vending Machine
Products in the lineup can be purchased with points.
Points are obtained by inserting and converting monster materials.
It’s a large square box. There’s a part at the top that can be opened, and an LCD panel to operate it at the front.
The current points are 0, but we could access the lineup, there was stuff from my world like onions, beef, etc.
This means we have become able to exchange monster materials for these ingredients… This is actually revolutionary.
[Huhー, we’ll be able to cook our own food with this and become less reliant on gacha Food.]
[Who’s going to do the cooking though? The one who can among us……]
I thought we would be able to eat food on the level of gacha Food, without actually using the gacha Food, then remembered there aren’t any cooks in the party.
Everyone except Luna glanced at Noru, who said she knew how to cook before, then looked away as we gave up on our prospects.
[There aren’t any…]
[None at all…]
[Wh, what is the meaning of that! I said I can cook, didn’t I!]
She indignantly boops the table to protest, but there’s no credibility to her claims so she gets ignored.
I should try letting her cook once, when the chance to appears in the future.
● Wall Shoes
Shoes that can stick onto walls.
Do be cautious if you wear a skirt.
Shoes with something like suction cups on the bottom appeared. The design feels awfully blatant, if you can actually walk on walls with this.
And that warning for people who wear skirts… It’s pretty obvious you’ll be exposing what’s under your skirt if you use this. Maybe only Noru out of the girls would use this.
[So you can walk on the walls with this.]
[Interesting. Heihachi, let me try it out.]
While I was thinking so, Luna showed interest. She wore the shoes that I passed to her.
She then began walking around the walls of our home with it. It was quite the bizarre sight to see someone standing horizontally…
Wind Magic Attack Power +100%
50% chance to cause target to temporarily lose their sense of smell.
A 3rd grimoire has made its appearance. It’s a green book with an image of a bird on its cover this time.
[Ara, a new grimoire.]
[It’s wind this time… Try not to be too flashy too much?]
[Fufu, I’ll keep that in mind.]
With this, we have grimoires of 3 different elements, fire, wind and earth. This will power up Estel’s attacks even more…
I gave her something of a suggestion, which she lightly laughed off. Here’s hoping nothing happens.
Move speed +50%
Action speed +40%
I had some expectations because it was an SSR, but what appeared was a hat.
The part that covers the head is a black colored round half dome, with brims on the front and back. Is this one of those detective hats?
It also had an ornamental feather. The speed bonuses on it are quite amazing. I could certainly use this.
[It’s a hat. Does anyone object to me taking this?]
[That’s fine and all… but are you planning to wear that on top of your helm?]
[Nn? Of course.]
[I think it’s about time you stopped adding more things to your outfit…]
I intended to wear it on top of my helmet, but the girls were giving negative reactions.
There were still slots for bodily equipment left, so I wanted to try equipping more things… In GC, you could only equip 1 thing in 1 slot, so I was pretty excited at the prospect of being able to equip multiple pieces on my head slot.
It’s something any player would’ve wanted to try in games.
[What, does Heihachi have a weird outfit?]
[Luna hasn’t seen Onii-san’s full battle attire yet. It’ll probably shock you.]
I’m not wearing most of my gear since we are at home right now, so Luna hasn’t seen me in my full glory yet.
Estel put her hand on her cheek and made a “heh” face, as she told Luna about it.
It’s not my intention to have such a glamorous outfit… Woe is me.
● Dimension Room
A door connecting you to a different dimension, which can be placed onto any wall.
The space inside will remain the same regardless of where you place the door.
This was the last required item of the CompGacha. I have great expectations for this.
Despite the high expectations, what came out was just a single doorknob. Anyone would think this is just another useless item at a glance.
But when you used it as per the description, it would create a door. And when you twisted the doorknob, it would open just like any other regular door.
[This didn’t get pulled last for nothing, it’s a really useful item… it just looks really plain.]
[It will be useful as a safe zone to rest when we are inside the Labyrinth.]
The inside of the room was just an empty white space. It has about 2 to 3 rooms worth of space compared to the Room you add using the House Extension.
This would make for a handy safe zone when inside the Labyrinth, after we pre-place some other stuff inside of it.
I expected nothing less from this hard to obtain SSR item.
Attack Power +3290
Action Speed +190%
● Pot Lid☆22
Defense Power +1300
● Adamant Armor☆3
Defense Power +1100
Defense Speed +15%
Lastly, was the stacking of duped gear…
Excali-Bar has reached new heights… it’s already more powerful than some random UR.
It should be counted as a UR at this point, no? It’ll be renamed【Excali-bar, the sword that sort of promises victory】. Maybe it could also shoot beams too?
Pot Lid has also long since transcended the concept of a “pot lid”. My Adamant Armor has also been buffed with more defense.
[O, Okura-dono’s weapon has become amazing now…]
[Even SRs can become this powerful if you stack enough of them.]
Noru and Estel were surprised to see Excali-Bar surpassing the UR barrier.
I had a feeling that this would happen someday… but I have mixed feelings about this.
If it becomes this powerful, there’s no point in switching it out for a UR weapon.
I might as well bid goodbye to the image of me wielding a cool looking weapon. I have become doomed to use this brilliantly shining crowbar-ish thing from now onwards.
[What’s with this… such a spoopy looking weapon, but it’s actually stronger than mine.]
[Isn’t Luna-san’s weapon more than enough alr――ah.]
Luna was fascinated, as she held and examined my Excali-Bar.
Shisuha sneaked up and attempted to grab her from behind, but right when the Priestess thought that her prey was within her grasp, Luna’s form disappeared.
[Oooh, this is quite amazing. Heihachi, give it to me.]
[I’d become a worthless chump without it, so can’t do that!]
[Tch, that’s a shame.]
Luna moved right beside me before I knew it, avoiding Shisuha’s fiendish hands.
That’s some movement speed she got there… I couldn’t even see what happened.
Luna asked me to give her the Excali-bar, just from the weapon stats alone.
I would become useless in combat without it, so I declined. But…. if it’s this strong, I feel like it’ll be more useful if the girls use it instead of me.
The day may come when I make enough Excali-Bars for the whole party.
When I imagine the entire party wielding crowbars to battle, I can’t help but think of the group as a bunch of weirdos.
