“A skill… card?”
After analyzing the card I have in my hands, I speak these words without realizing .
Skill card . I can somehow imagine what this word means . Now, the results of the analysis . What is displayed is…[Skill card ≪Cutting Legs (Slash Kick) ≫]… . . Skill < Cutting legs> can be learned .
(TL note: The original skill is ≪斬脚(ざんきゃく)≫)
So it tells .
The skill can be learned? For real? Is such a thing possible? No, I am able to somehow imagine it from the name of the Skill card .
So speaking of [Cutting legs], is that the ability that had cut open my belly earlier?
“Ohhhh . ”
A…amazing . ………… .
“I am speechlesss!!!”
By suddenly picking up a skill you can learn, I am troubled in deciding what reaction I should make!!! Is it fine if I dance in joy!!?
I think the clever monkey that died because of my armpit odor is pitiful, but the fallen cards are not only [Cutting Legs] .
I pick up with my hand all the other fallen cards and analyze everything . The results that I got from all these skill cards are:[Skill card ≪Cutting Legs≫]… . Skill < Cutting Legs> can be learned . [Skill card ≪Moment≫]… . Skill < Moment > can be learned . [Skill card ≪Super Compounding≫] … . Skill < Super Compounding > can be learned . [Skill card ≪Tool Production: Super First-class≫]…… Skill ≪Tool Production: Super First-class≫ can be learned . [TL note: Was the monkey a legendary crafter?]
“Oh, oh… . ”
…… . .
“After all I’m rendered speechless……!”
Iyaa, isn’t this an amazing thing!? Because it’s a skill, you know! I got my hands on skills!!! But, it’s so sudden that it’s troubling .
“… . . I wonder how to use this . ”
Even though it’s written that I can learn, I have no idea how . What should I do?… . So while I was thinking that, all of the skill cards suddenly start shining with light .
Skill cards emit a violent light, become a ball of light and enter my body .
“Eyyy!? Somehow, something entered!”
The skill cards disappear from my hand . The sudden occurrence surprised me, but the voice in my head that spoke when I learn a skill spoke .[Skill ≪Cutting Legs≫ has been learned] [Skill ≪Moment≫ has been learned] [Skill ≪Super Compounding≫ has been learned] [Skill ≪Tool Production: Super First-class≫ has been learned]
“………… . Uwa~a……”
I sit down lightly .
I mean, suddenly I learn a lot of skills . It is so sudden that I doubt . Why can I be true to myself and be happy?
“… . For the time being, let’s confirm it . ”
So I think about confirming the skills I just learned .[Cutting Legs]: I can release a slash from my feet . Effective range of slashing is about 10m . [Moment]: I can move with a speed that the enemy cannot react . The effect is instant, but it can be used in succession . [Super Compounding]: Ability to compound . It gives the maximum effect to the compound . [Tool Production: Super First-class]: Ability to make tools . It gives the maximum effects to the tools .
“…… . It can’t beee… . . ”
Too much of a cheat!!! This is baaaad!
Can I who lived an ordinary life in earth do it?
“…I don’t have confidence in doing it well . ”
I, Will I be okay?
Certainly, inside this dangerous forest, having a cheat skill is reassuring, but I am scared that I will misunderstand this and think that it’s my own power! It may seem weird, but self-destruction won’t be a joke .
“… . . I’ll be careful . ”
There was no choice but to say so .
But [Super Compounding] and [Tool Production: Super First-class] seem to be convenient in various ways in this place and don’t pose such a danger .
Though it seems I got the best version of these skills .
I wonder if that means that the clever monkey I defeated was skilled in making tools and compounds .
Heck, after all the [First-class Medicine] seems like it was made by the clever monkeys .
“So they really are smart… . ”
Why don’t I make some glass? What’s more, I will make it in a bottle form and make it more unreasonable .
“Well if I can take advantage of it, I will work hard and take advantage of it . ”
For the time, I make my new goal to master the skills .
“Well… . next is?”
The next thing I hold in my hand is a book . Well……rather than calling it a book, a booklet? “…… What is this?”
I say without realizing .
In the cover of the booklet is not a character that I have seen written before, but for some reason, I was able to understand the words .
“…… I see . Are these the words of this world?”
Soon, after I noticed the true identity of the characters that are written on the cover of the booklet, I notice that I seem to be able to read the letters and try to write my name in the firm ground .
“Let’s try writing it…”
And I write my name without difficulty . I did it . [TL note: he says this somehow like a child that succeeded in something like eating all of their lunch . ]
Even though my English was no good, I am surprised that I can easily handle these characters I have never seen before .
This, I wonder if it is due to the language comprehension ability that God gave us before the transport .
“Are? Wait, then why doesn’t [Language Comprehension] appear in the skills section?
Uhhm… . . can it be that [Language Comprehension] isn’t a skill, but an inborn talent that can’t be seen?
Maa, it’s not a problem even if I don’t investigate profoundly . Even if it doesn’t appear as the first skill, it isn’t a problem as long as I can use it .
In the end, that’s what I think . No matter what others say, that’s what I think!!!…… I, to whom am I saying this?
“Nhh…what is written on the cover?”
I read the cover of the booklet . What is written is “Knowledge of the Clever Monkey” Okay, Knowledge? Of that monkey? Or about that monkey?…………
“Maa… . I will read it . ”
I open the booklet .[The clever monkey is a highly intelligent species that live in high level dungeons . They have great dexterity with their hands . Furthermore they have a lot of knowledge about various herbs and they can compound or make tools . They can understand human speech, but cannot speak it . In tools-making technology and compound techniques, they surpass humanity . And in terms of using tools, they are better than humans . ]
“Monkeys are amazing!!!”
I didn’t think that they would surpass humans!? Normally the boundary between humans and animals is how well you can make and handle tools… . . It’s difficult for me to grasp the difference between animals and humans . I don’t understand .
But, it can’t be the ability to create a tool better than humanity, but to have the technique to use it!!… .
“Iyaaa… . Clever monkey, so dangerous . ”
I say and turn the page
Then the title is written in big letters on one page and it reads [Lifetime of the Clever Monkey] .
Suddenly it turns magnificent!?
“… . . What is this? Is a document starting?”
So I say as I turn another page .
I start reading it and then I am lost for words . But, it isn’t in a bad meaning, on the contrary, in a good meaning .
“It can’t be . All the experiences of the monkey have been packed into this one book!?”
I continue reading and what is written are the effects of each and every plant and herb, etc . , and how to work with them .
Furthermore the plants are possible to collected in the whole area around here . All those places were drawn is the map .
Not only are the plants written about, there are valuable mineral locations marked .
“Seriously, bad… . Too bad!
In the last page was a map with a cross that carefully marks the place of the dead monkey .
“Because I didn’t move from this place where I killed the monkey, it marks my current position?!!”
Because, in this forest that I am currently wandering around, a lot of places to be used as reference points are important .
After reading the booklet, like the skill card, it starts emitting a violent light . Then, again it turns into a ball of light and enters inside me .
The moment the ball of light is sucked inside me, knowledge that was in the booklet before starts flowing in my head .
“The information that suddenly flows in my head… . I can understand everything!!!
Although it’s my own self, I am surprised to remember without difficulty at once all of the obtained knowledge .
This is like the time I learned the skills . In the end, all the knowledge I got is completely mine .
“Wawa… . . wawawa… . ”
A smile forms without realizing . This … seriously what is it?
First, I kill a demon-like monkey, then I get skill cards I never seen before and all the knowledge and experience of the monkey was in my hands? … . Surely something is wrong . Until then I thought because in my head, a certain word appear .
“——–Absolute Disassembly… . . !”
I know! In that description, it said, “Obtain all (・・) from the defeated demon . ” That’s why I could make all the knowledge my own!
“Th…then, what are the remaining ball and treasure box…?”
I drop onto my knees where the rest of the defeated clever monkey was and transfer my line of sight to the mysterious sphere and the treasure chest while I muttered .[ED note: another stupid cliff hanger…… . . the troll is real] [TL note: and the same as the previous chapter for more pleasure… . ] [ED note: Would the readers be interested in me posting updates on chapters through twitter or something like that?]
