Eguchi Ren: The gods and goddesses are back. Oh, but first let’s talk about the 2nd tenant shop

 

Once everyone has fallen asleep, I went to one corner of the room and called for the gods and goddesses.

“Hello, it’s been a long time since we’ve spoken. I am now back from the dungeon.”

The sounds of running footsteps thundered in my ears.

“Oh, you’re finally back!”

“Finally!”

“Oh, did you? I haven’t noticed…”

“… I’ve been waiting…”

“Ou! Welcome back! What’s your level now?”

“Yes, tell us!”

Oi, oi, is that really what you want to ask me the moment you see me?

“Oh yes, I want to know too! What’s your level now?”

That excited voice could only be Kishar-sama, [8] the cosmetics otaku.

“If you must know, my level is now at 62. So I guess I’ve unlocked the 2nd tenant shop.”

A great cheer followed my announcement.

“Excellent, let’s unlock the liquor store right away!”

“No! I want a drugstore! A drugstore!”

As the two gods and one goddess began to quarrel with each other, other voices added to the chaos.

“Who cares about that, I want cake! I want it now!”

“Indeed, you can discuss the matter later. I’ve been looking forward to a good beer for quite a while now,”

“… cake, ice-cream…”

Ninril-sama and Ruka-sama were pretty happy with the Japanese Dessert Store Fujiya and could not care less about the quarrel. As for Agni-sama, she had been keen on a liquor store but lost interest once she discovered beer.

“Quiet! We are now having a very important discussion over the next tenant store. So, Shut Up,” [3] said Kishar-sama.

“Kishar-sama is scary…”

“I guess we should just stay quiet…”

“… …”

I could only imagine the kind of presence Kishar-sama has to shut these other goddesses up. Still, I don’t want to sit here and listen to their quarrel, so…

“Excuse me, we still don’t know what the options are for the 2nd tenant store. Why don’t we check that out first?” I suggested.

“Oh, that’s right. Well, get to it!”

“Be quick about it now!”

“Hurry, hurry~~!”

“Y-yes, please hold on,”

I opened up my status and touched the (+1) next to the [Net Super] skill.

 

Unique skill “Net Super” has been unlocked.

Please choose one of the following:

– Kantucky

– Suzuki’s Bakery

– Tanaka’s Liquor Store

 

Oh? I’m given three options this time?

Hmm, the previous option Wakudonald isn’t here. Instead, they have Kantucky, the other popular fast-food chain. As for Suzuki’s Bakery and Tanaka’s Liquor Store, I can only assume they are independent shops… [5] [6] Screams of excitement (and despair) interrupted my musings. [5]

“Yes! A liquor shop!”

“It’s here! We’ve waited for for so long!”

 

Behind the cheers was Kishar-sama’s disappointed, “Why is there no drugstore? Why liquor store? Whyyy!!”

“Ahaha,” I have no control over this and personally, I’d have chosen Suzuki’s Bakery since speciality baked goods are superior to supermarket ones but I have a feeling the gods might smite me… [5]

“Alright,” I said over Kishar-sama’s mutterings and the alcoholic duo’s cheering. “Shall I unlock Tanaka’s Liquor Store?”

“Yes!!”

“Do it!!”

“I don’t care…”

“Just get on with it so that I can have my cake,”

“Same here, I want my weekly beer fix,”

“…cake, ice-cream…”

Well, that settles it. I chose Tanaka’s Liquor Store.

 

[Do you wish to establish a contract with Tanaka’s Liquor Shop? YES / NO]

YES.

[Contract with Tanaka’s Liquor Shop established successfully. The next tenant will be unlocked at Level 80. We look forward to seeing you again.]

 

Level 80? That sounds kind of far away. Would it keep doubling, I wonder. With the 4th tenant shop at 160 and so on?

Hmm, I guess I won’t be unlocking any tenant shops in the near future considering my dislike for dungeons. I prefer to live my life slowly and level up gradually. [5]

“I’ve established a contract with Tanaka’s Liquor Store,”

Ah, there’s that cheer again.

“Yes! Yes! Show us, show us all the new liquor!”

“Yes! Open it now!” [5]

I can tell that this was going to take a long time, so- [5]

“Excuse me, is it alright if I serve the goddesses first? We can take our time to slowly look over the list of liquors later…”

“Hmm, that sounds reasonable. God of War?”

“An excellent suggestion, I’d like to take my time too, God of Blacksmith,”

With that out of the way, I turned my attention to the goddesses.

 

[Gumihou: Ah, Mukouda-san is displaying his excellent skill as a tactful shop attendant.]

What Gumi imagines Mukouda-san looks like now…

    Waiting for the big boss in charge of all the other gods…

  2. SFcipher

    Thanks for the treat, and see you next week.

    So, it’s finally here, the liquor store. Unclear what kind of stuff it has, but if it’s offering cocktails, then Mukoda is doomed to waste a lot of time taking orders from them drunkards gods.
    Thanks for the second chapter! Awesome translation! May God bless you!

    1. Gumihou

      Oh my gawd, so many liquors, so many research, so many pics!!

      1. Philip

        I guess, you have been working on the next chapters, and it’s more of a research job than a translation one?

        1. Gumihou

          I mean, I could just leave it alone (I couldn’t) and decided to share my findings, lol!

    Mukouda could also try frying chicken differently for a possibly superior overall flavor than Kantucky’s pressure cooker sage flavor. Guga’s youtube channel has three different examples of how different frying fats can be used with fried chicken including Wagyu Fried Chicken. As with many pizza and teriyaki places, before the pandemic, I used to visit any new fried chicken place as well. The worst one oddly enough had great tasting chicken (MSG), but the crust was rock hard and salty wherever it was thick. I ended up throwing away quite a bit of the crust because their ultra-crunchy gimmick was too much for me especially at $4.79 USD for two pieces. And I found a place that due to the pandemic, the amount of chicken sold by the farms to the restaurant and hotel trade went way down, so the chicken farmers dumped their overstock at some stores. If the store didn’t hide behind the pandemic excuse and overpriced their goods, the prices of things like chicken actually went down (at the few stores that didn’t use the pandemic excuse to raise prices). So, the best-priced fried chicken is twenty (20) drumsticks for $6.99 (six dollars and ninety nine cents).

    Level 80 seem very far away ?? Just 1 more dungeon and sure Mukouda will be at level 1xx before he know

    1. Hamster

      I wish there would be more tidbits about what happened to the other people from Earth.

      1. Rubber

        Hmmm, this website translate this novel until volume 6 huh. At jnovel they already done volume 10

        1. Gumihou

          Ah, yes. I’ve seen their translation. There’s a reason why I decided to go ahead with my own version anyway.

      2. Runner

        @Hamster, there will be a chapter that will tell you about the other people from the earth at volume 7.

  6. Rowenaeng

    I would have chosen Kantucky. I like fried chicken and I love their chicken sandwich

    1. Gumihou

      I love fried chicken too. Japanese Kantacky would probably also have things like riceballs and cute desserts, lol
