The 11th floor.

Higher species Dungeon Cows dotted the tranquil plains. Their black glossy bodies make them look like regular Japanese cows but their sizes were at least twice as large as a normal ranch cow.

They were bigger than the Dungeon Cows we encountered earlier but not by much. However, their horns were twice as long.

“I thought the Dungeon Pigs on the 10th floor were huge but these cows are humungous,” to be fair, regular Dungeon Cows were already quite big.

Umu, who knows how much meat we could get out of one kill, but it’s fine since there are a lot of them,” [3] Fer padded forward, his eyes glittering [5].

““It’s meat! Time to gather the meat!””

““Delicious meat~ delicious meat~””

“… ah, everyone, please remember to be moderate and…” I took the magic bag from my [Item Box] and hung it around Fer’s neck. [5] “After hunting to a certain extent, please gather the meat and put them here. You can also bring me the meat if you’re nearby.”

Fer & Co made some sounds of agreement, but I have no idea whether they were really listening to me.

[8] “Yosh! Dora, Sui, let’s go!”



Everyone scattered.

“Moderation! Moderation!” [3] I shouted as they ran off in three different directions. [5]

“……” I never should have trusted them. [5]

The grassland in front of me was flattened by leaf-wrapped meat chunks.

Nuu, they were too stupid to get out of the way, so I accidentally killed them.”

What is this ridiculous excuse…?

““Oh, my~~ they looked so delicious that I ended up forgetting about the promise, hahaha~!””

What do you mean hahaha…

““Mister Cow looks yummy~~ Sui caught a lot~~””

Ah, Sui-tan…

In the end, they took down every single cow on this floor.

Hahhh…. it’s not like I can do anything about that. [5]

Anyway, it was a good idea to give Fer the magic bag. At least, we don’t have to go too far to look for the meat Drops. It took us a lot less time to collect everything this time around.


Speaking of which, the number of meat chunks collected also reached three digits on this floor.

“I guess, since you’ve all hunted down everything here, we should go to the 12th floor now.” I sighed. “Ah, but keep it moderate, you three!”

Umu, annoying.”

““I know already!””

““Sui knows~~””

Knowing and doing are two different things, though?

Finally, we’re on the 12th floor of Rosendal’s ‘meat dungeon’.

The place where the higher species of Dungeon Pigs and Cows could be found.


Wait, among the huge cows and pigs, there were some that towered above the rest. Powerful tusks jutted out of the Pigs’ lower jaws and the horns that loomed over the Cows’ heads were even thicker and more dangerous looking.

“Are those… the special individuals?”

Umu, looks like it. Hmm, looks like they are going to get cheeky.”

“Uh, get cheeky?”

While I was wondering what Fer was talking about, all the hulkingly huge special individuals suddenly stared in our direction.


The special individuals lowered their heads and pawed the ground.

[6] “Um, Fer?”

Suddenly, they all roared and charged forward.



Thump! Thump! Thump!

“This is bad! They are coming this way!”

Moreover, the other Cows and Pigs were also thumping in our direction, as though pulled in by these special individuals.

“This is bad, this is bad, this is bad…” [3] I was nearly sick with fear.

“Enough with your quivering! These losers are no match for us. Dora, Sui! Let’s go!”

““Hah! I’m gonna turn all these weaklings into meat!!””

““Meat~! Sui will harvest lots of meat~””

What happened next was… well…

It was a massacre.

Lightning struck the monsters like an AOE power move on steroids…

Wind scythes mowed through the grassland, taking down the monsters as though they were nothing more substantial than tall grasses…

A fire wreathed Dora-chan zoomed through the Cows and Pigs, leaving flaming holes…

The heads of the monsters were pierced through by Acid Bullets and Ice Pillars…

Yes, it was a terrible massacre.

A one-sided smackdown that caused these hulking monsters to scream, turn tail and run away. Their tails between their legs…


“…… This is so unfair that I honestly feel bad for them,”

10 minutes later.

““Yeahhh!!! That’s the last one! Oryaa!!!””

Dora-chan flew after the last of the special individual Dungeon Cow and flew right through it.

Like, literally.


The huge body collapsed and a short while later, the corpse disappeared, leaving a large chunk of meat behind.

There was absolute silence after that. [1] The large horde of Dungeon Pigs and Cows had been thoroughly wiped out.

“….hey, Fer”

Mu, you said to keep it moderate, but it can’t be helped.”

““Yeah, they attacked us first!””

““Master~ we have plenty of meat~””

“Haahh… I guess it really can’t be helped. They did attack us first… well, it would be a waste to leave all the meat here, so let’s collect them together. [5]”

Needless to say, it took us a lot longer than 10 minutes to finish collecting the meat.

I flopped to the floor, exhausted.

“Aahh, it’s finally over.”

“Goodness, my master is too soft,” Fer’s face loomed over me mockingly.

“Shut up, it’s hard work picking up all these Drops. I nearly threw out my waist picking up all these things.”

“Humph, that is why I say you’re soft. Whatever, get up. I’m hungry.”

““Ou! I’m hungry too!””

““Sui wants dinner too~~””

“Aahh, yes, yes, let’s go,” I wanted nothing more than to stay on the ground all splayed out on the soft grass but… anyway, I manfully rolled to my feet and we made our way out of the dungeon.

By the time we stepped out of the dungeon, it was completely dark.

Looks like a lot of time had passed.

Anyway, since we’re officially on a mission, I thought we should stop by the Adventurer’s Guild despite the late hours.

It turned out to be a good decision.

The moment we got there, Giannino-san suddenly came out to meet us. [10] “Ooh, you’re back! Ahem, how was the challenge?”


“We made it to the 12th floor,” I said.

“Oh?” said Giannino-san with some careful excitement. “And the request?”

“Hmm, it was for 10 portions of meat from higher species of Dungeon Pigs and Cows, right. Ahem, but, ah, would it be alright for the guild to take… more?”

“Oh? Oh! Of course, of course! We’d be happy to! Top class meat is always welcomed. Hmm, how about 360 gold for 15 portions of each type of meat?”

“360 gold-! Ahem, sure, 15 portions of each type is fine,” Woah, guess I can’t expect him to take 100 portions each…


Anyway, we made the exchange.

I’m pretty happy to leave with more money in my [Item Box]. I had been looking forward to having offal for dinner but I’m too tired to handle the complex process of cleaning and processing them.

Dinner would have to be something quick and simple, but tomorrow!

Yes, I shall definitely eat offal tomorrow!


Eguchi Ren: Total Gold = 87,865 coins.


[Gumihou: Hmm, the issue of what ‘offal’ consisted of is annoying Gumi. Intestine? Heart? Liver? Lungs? Stomach? Tongue? Each of these needs different ways of cleaning.]

    Dungeon ? More like the meat storage…

    Thank you for the chapter

    Love that “meat meat” part. They really don’t hide and aren’t ashamed in any way to show just how much they love meat. Then again, if by killing monsters in any way you can get ready wrapped meat, I would also go ‘meat meat~’. I wonder if luring the monsters to one place and killing them there would keep the drops closer together. That might save Mukoda’s back, lolz. Well, that is more of a game tactic, and it feels like Mukoda is not a gamer at all.
    Thanks for the first chapter this week! Awesome translation! May God bless you!

      Ahem, the meat, meat, meat and meat battle cries are from Gumi, lol.

      He’s also not fully utilizing his familiar’s strength. I’d have made Fer collect the Drops with his wind magic (little gentle tornadoes) and get Sui to turn gigantic and rolled over all the random drops to pick them up.

      But like you said, not a gamer and only a white collar worker
