Chapter 042 – Fer vs Orthrus

Re-Translated by Gumihou

Eguchi Ren: Battle scenes are… difficult

Gumihou: That’s alright, I’ll help you. Or the readers can check out the manga, hehe~

I heard barking from a great distance.




It’s that… barking? The sound of dogs barking?

A-are the Orthruses coming for us?

Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof!

[6] Something thundered through the bushes and a huge face, no, two huge faces pushed through the leaves and growled at us. Saliva dripped everywhere as its impossibly huge and sleek body with black fur flashed out.

The thing did not lose to Fer in terms of size.

Moreover, there were five of them.


Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh-

“Worry not, they are nothing.”

Nothing? What do you mean nothing?!

Can you not see the drooling mouth, the flashing fangs and-


Drooling mouth? Flashing fangs?

[8] Only one of the five Orthruses was showing these. The other four remained behind it, [6] giving only occasional yips as though trying to stop the middle one from going forward.

“Humph, looks like there’s one punk who hasn’t learned what fear is,” [5]

[8] I could feel muscles tensed under Fer even as I slide off his back.

“Fer? What are you going to do?”

“Take Sui and find refuge,”

[8] “Find refuge? I mean, sure, I’m leaving to find refuge now!” [7] clutching my shoulder bag and ducked behind a large tree.

[8] When no sound of combat immediately happened, I took a peek around the tree. Fer was now facing the Orthrus alone. The ‘young punk’ in question was still drooling and baring its teeth against Fer. His friends have long since retreated to the bushes.

[8] I felt a little better about myself.

“Are you aware of what it means to bare your fangs towards me? I will not hold back. If you are prepared for death, then come at me.”


The Orthrus growled [8] as it tensed its body.

Then, with a roar, it sprang up from the ground and leapt towards Fer.

Fer stood his place, not even bothering to dodge. [8] All he did was lift his right paw and make a single slashing motion.


Phantom claws flashed forward from Fer’s paw, moving like the wind towards the Orthrus, cutting it apart.

“Wh-wh-wh- what the heck was that?!”

Is that some sort of special Skill?

Was it some kind of magic?

Could it be the ordinary sounding ‘Claw Slash’ I vaguely remember seeing on Fer’s status?


The other Orthruses turned around and leapt out of sight like a bunch of frightened rabbits.

“Oi, you can come out now,”

I sidled out from behind the tree with Sui in my arms. In the middle of the commotion, Sui woke up and bounced into my arms.

She was trembling really badly, ““Uncle Fer is really strong~””

“Aah, yes, he’s really strong. What was that skill earlier?”

“It’s called Claw Slash. By charging Wind Magic to my claws, I can release the power in one slash and cut down multiple enemies in one slash.”

[4] “Cut down multiple enemies in one slash… that’s kind of brutal.”

“It’s a technique I developed about 600 years ago,” [7] Fer looked very smug with himself. [5]

[4] “Uggh, surely you don’t have to brag like that?” his powers are a total cheat. [8] They are a total cheat, aren’t they!!?

““Nee~ nee~ when can Sui do that? Just like Uncle Fer?””

“Hmm, Sui has no claws, so the Claw Slash would be impossible. However, Sui has a different skill, remember? The Acid Bullet is incredibly amazing,” [7] I said as I patted Sui.

““Really? Really? Sui is amazing?””

“Yes~ Sui is amazing~ Sui is the best~”

Ahhh, talking to cute Sui dispels all the bloodthirsty tension from just now~ How soothing~~

Well, the tension was gone but the smell of blood was still rather strong.

“Oi, what are we going to do with this Orthrus?” urgh, it looks horrible. Fer had really slashed it well, the insides were spilling out…

“Orthrus tasted bad and are not edible,”

[4] “I guess you’ve tried eating one before?” to think he’d try and eat something so awful looking… [5]

“However, I do believe humans valued its skin and fangs,”

“I-is that so?” [3] somehow, I have a feeling that a great commotion would happen if I show up with this thing…

There’s already a Chimaera in my [Item Box] right now…

Forget it, the two of them could sleep inside the box for eternity.


Let’s do that.

Peace unto earth and goodwill to all.

[8] Don’t hate me for this, Orthrus-san, you brought it on yourself.
