That evening…


“Everyone, sorry for the wait,”

A stampede of footsteps and garbled voices sounded in my head.

“I’m sick of waiting! Hurry up! Hurry up! Great Me wants my desserts! Sweetness and desserts!”

Hey, hey, hey, what’s the rush? Ninril-sama, you’re being way too excited.

“That’s right, calm down, Ninril-chan,”

“Yo, take it easy there,”


“Augh, I don’t want to end up like that,”

“Neither do I,”

Everyone was stunned by Ninril-sama’s deplorableness.

“Alright, I’ll be sending up the offerings one by one. First up, Ninril-sama,” I said, trying to retake control of the situation.

[11] Ninril-sama’s package:

– Dorayaki (lots)

– Sliced Cake (lots)

– Limited Edition Cakes from the Autumn Halloween Fair

Chestnuts are the sweets of autumn after all. From the Autumn Halloween Fair, I included the new super luxurious Mont Blanc made with three kinds of [9] marron cream, a Swiss roll cake with plenty of chestnuts, apple pie made with Japanese apples, cakes made with whole apples and a pear tart made with [10] La France pears.

Ninril-sama’s boxes exuded a light sweet scent…

A quick flash of light later… [5]

“Uwaaaan, it’s been a while since I had sweets from another world. Hehe, I can finally, finally eat them~~! Thank you~~!”

…. She was actually crying.

If you are going to cry over them, make sure to ration yourself properly to avoid these feast and famine situations. [5]

“Stop it, Ninril-chan. Don’t eat those here. That’s improper!”

“Shut up! I’ve been waiting for these for such a long time and I finally managed to get my hands on them, so let me eat them!”

“Wow, that Ninril is just grabbing the cakes with both hands and stuffing her face…” [7] came the fascinated voice of Hephaestus-sama.

“Her face is covered in cream, how unsightly,” [3] was Vahagn-sama’s comment.

“Oi, oi, you goddesses are her friends, right? Please do something about it.”

“Yeah, she’s starting to creep me out.”


“We don’t know that person,” came the firm voices of the three goddesses. [5]

“Ah well, we can only ignore her. Let’s proceed, Other Worlder-kun,” said Kishar.

“A-Are you sure?”

“It’s fine. She’s just gobbling up the cakes and things [5]–”

“Uwaan~ this Dorayaki ish shooo gooooddd~~”

…yeah, I don’t know her either.

“Erm, next up is Kishar-sama,”

[11] Kishar-sama’s package: [5]

– Beauty Essence (1g4s) – Bring out the original beauty inside you. This essence has a powerful effect that leads to smooth and firm skin.

 – Beauty Oil (1g4s) – A very light oil that seeps quickly into the skin. Made from a blend of 5 carefully selected natural plant oil that moisturises and softens the skin leading to a glossy and gorgeous finish (can also be used on the rest of the body as well as the face).

– [6] The rest of the budget was spent on various face masks.

[6] I ended up getting two bottles of Beauty Oil since it could be used on the body as well as the face.

[6] “Please check the content of the box,” I said after the pitifully light and hollow-sounding box disappeared in a flash of light.

“Beauty Essence and Beauty Oil? [5] How do I use this Beauty Oil, Other Worlder-kun?”

[5] “Please hold on,” [7] the descriptions were on the box but I’ll just assume that she can’t read the Japanese words or something.

Instead of opening up that can of worms, I opened up [Net Super] instead and went to the beauty product page.

“For the Beauty Oil, you can apply it lightly on your skin after washing your face for better absorption of your face cream. You may also use it in place of face or body cream. You may also use it as a massage cream or mix it with other creams or lotion before applying it onto your skin.”

“I see~ so there are many ways of using it~ [6] Is that why you got me two bottles? I look forward to trying it~”

“Hey, enough about that, Kishar. Switch with me,”

“Hmm, impatient as always, aren’t you, Agni?”

“Well, I’m up next!”

“Yes, yes,”

While the goddesses were arguing, I had been moving boxes and cartons from my [Item Box] to the table.

[11] Agni-sama’s package: 

– Company S Premium Beer (blue) x 2 cartons

– Y-bis Beer (gold) x 2 cartons

– Assorted local beers

– Assorted overseas beer (various craft beers)

– Food: Grilled Offal, hotdogs, fried food etc


“Ooh, this looks awesome! Thanks! I can’t wait to go back and try them ASAP!”

I know it sounds odd, but Agni-sama sounded a lot like an ossan. A middle-aged uncle who enjoys offal and fried food with his beer.

“It is I next,”

Ah, it’s Ruka-sama.

[6] Ruka-sama also has several boxes. I placed the food I made for her into some empty boxes I had lying around in my [Item Box].

[11] Ruka-sama’s Package:

– Ice-cream (from slightly expensive American branded ice-creams to cheaper local ones that are popular with the masses).

 – Cakes – Fujiya Limited Autumn Halloween Festival Cakes, the same as Ninril-sama’s.

– Food: Hotdogs as well as fried food and various other ‘on the road food’ I had already pre-made.

“So much ice-cream, so many cakes, so much food, I am happy. Thank you.”

Ruka-sama still sounded a little stilted, but obviously happy. [5]

That’s good.

“Right, us next!”

“Let’s gooo!”

What do you mean by ‘let’s go’…

Anyway, I had to carefully place the reinforced boxes on the table. The bottles were damn heavy and fragile.

[11] Hephaestus and Vahagn-sama’s package:

– Best Whiskey in the World (low price end) x 2

– Various whiskies: Japanese, Scotch, Irish, American, Canadian and other cheaper varieties

“Alright, this is the last box. It’s all very heavy and breakable, so be careful.”

“We know!”

The box disappeared following the echo of Hephaestus-sama’s word.

“Yahoo! There are loads of different types as requested! Thanks!”

“We did ask for lots of variety but this is incredible. We’ll be enjoying these slowly!”

“Yosh, War God, shall we?”

“My thoughts exactly, God of Smith,”

Dom, dom, dom, dom, dom —

… eh? They’re gone? Have those two actually gone off to drink right away?

“Ahem, excuse me…?”

“Which one should I pick next~~ Yes, let’s eat this one~~!”

“…everyone else has left. It’s fine to just leave Ninril here with her cakes. I, too, shall return to my temple to eat ice-cream. Farewell.”

“Ah, it’s just Ruka-sama and… Ninril-sama? Alright,”

Woah, they all sure disappeared quickly. Like a bunch of kids who ran off after collecting their sweets. Well, they are still loads better than the crazy one left behind…

[5] “Early to bed, early to rise. I have to leave early tomorrow, so I’m going to sleep now.”

[6] “Nom nom, uwaaan~~ this is happiness~~”

[6] Yup, gonna go now.


[Gumihou: Erm, this Ninril is getting more and more creepy…]

[8] Creative Licence Taken – everyone’s reaction to Ninril’s gorging.

[9] Marron cream = Crème de Marrons = Chestnut Cream

Actually contains no cream. It’s actually closer to nut butter. It is apparently very addictive.

Recipe for Crème de Marrons

[10] La France pears = A European pear that’s raised in Japan

Rather ugly looking for pears but are very tender and delicious. The flesh is soft enough that you can just cut it in half and scoop the flesh out easily with a spoon.

Remember what Gumi said about Japanese and soft texture? This is when soft things are appreciated. Of course, crisp, apple-like Korean pears are nice too.

[11] I figured this way makes it easier to read.

    Who was that from past comments that said ninril could be a love interest for mc? Who was it? How could you.. Apologize to everyone for making us read that.

  2. Dragul17

    Sugar addiction is real. Soda is a perfect example. I’m addicted to soda. I know it’s bad for me and I want to quit but it’s impossible to tear myself away from it.
    Often times when you are kept from a certain thing when you finally get access to it you go overboard. Growing up I was the only one in my class who didn’t have a phone, drank soda, or had TV and video games. I’m addicted to all 4 now and it’s real bad.
    In moderation also means introduction to the substance. For future parents out there denial means future addiction.

    1. Gumihou

      Yes, I agree that moderation is the key.

  3. Mr SpinelesS

    Since the gods watch the MC all the time, I’m surprised Kishar hasn’t asked for a bottle of Sui’s Elixir, or gotten her own elixir and added a drop to her beauty products to boost their performance, like the hair growth one…

    1. Felipe

      Watching is one thing, paying attention is another, I think she simply never thought about that or maybe magic potions have no effect on gods

    2. Ben

      I read something along the lines of “Otherworld items have effect”. Maybe the local world doesn’t have effect on them? Not sure.

  4. Ninril’s getting increasingly low class… she’s gonna end up an addict. Maybe Mukoda should call the God of Creation…

    1. nimirasol

      My thoughts exactly. She’s getting out of hand again.

    2. Felipe

      She already is addicted, besides she herself doesn’t see any problem with her behavior, you can’t cure someone of addiction if they don’t want to be cured

  5. Evra

    This make me want to eat cake too

  6. Philip

    Oh man, this deplorable-sama sounds more and more like a drug addict. Well, maybe not that bad, I never saw a real life addict so… either way she’s scary and spooky.
    Thanks for the chapter! Awesome translation! May God bless you!

    1. Gumihou

      I heard that you can get addicted to sugar too, maybe that’s it?

      1. Philip

        Hmm, sugar is probably addictive as coffee, or maybe less. I don’t know about any study about this, only remember hearing something like “sugar is addictive, but not too bad”

  7. Felipe

    Wow she’s getting worse, a lot worse, are they sure that gods can’t get sick?😶

    1. Gumihou

      Not sure where this information popped up from, but, eh
