Swish~ swish~ swish~

As the wind shook the tree branches above me, I went on with my cooking.

“The sound of the breeze in the trees is surprisingly pleasant~”

Right now, I am making meatballs in that very same clearing where we had first arrived. Mostly because the area here has the most light. Also, I can cook so casually in the middle of a forest infested by Behemoths because both Fer and Grandpa Gon had cast barrier on me.

I’m naturally hesitant about being alone in this kind of place, but Fer had said, ‘I want to have dinner right away after our hunt’ before rushing off with the rest of my familiars.

“… …” I guess that’s that.

Having nothing better to do, I decided to make meatballs with the mincemeat that Sui had minced for me.


In a forest that may or may not contain a Behemoth.

Or Behemoths

Under a double barrier-


-with creepy monster roars and shrieks punching through the gentle swishing of tree branches.

The first few guaaa and guoo startled me badly. However, after a while it was mostly annoying instead of scary. I mean, I look up every time it happens, kind of like when I hear police sirens or something. However, since nothing came out of the woods, I kept on kneading the meat in my bowl.

There’s really no point worrying about what would happen if I were attacked, I’m fairly sure of the durability of the double barriers, the main issue is… well, the waiting, and the feeling of isolation.

All of which could be alleviated by cooking!

Yes, let’s cook up a storm!

Let’s make Meatball in Sweet and Sour Sauce and Meatball Soup.

To make meatballs, first mix the minced Dungeon Pork with chopped onions, eggs, bread crumbs, saké, sesame oil, minced ginger (in tube), soy sauce, salt and pepper.

Knead the meat until the mixture became sticky. This is to help the meat form gluten strings that would hold the meat together when cooked. The next thing to do is to form the balls.

I generally roll the meatballs into balls that were slightly larger than I would like, since they would shrink during cooking. Especially during deep frying.

To save time, I got a couple of pots of oil going even as I roll more meatballs out. The lines of raw meatballs eventually became lines of perfectly fried, golden brown meatballs on cooling racks.

“Phew, that’s a lot of meatballs. Although I guess Fer and the rest would soon demolish them. Let’s make the sweet and sour sauce now.”

To make the sauce, in a heavy bottom pan, mix water, ketchup, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, saké, mirin and potato starch in a pot. Then, just heat it up until thickened. Once the sauce is done, toss the fried meatballs in the sauce and tumbled them onto a bed of lettuce with a sprinkle of white sesame seeds for that little artistically pleasing look.

“And the first plate of Sauced Meatballs is done~ fufufu, let’s try one now~”

I picked up one of the meatballs with my cooking chopsticks and took a bite, “Huff, huff, it’s hot, but, phew, still crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside~~ the sauce is simple, but irresistible~”

After swallowing the last bite of the meatball, I contemplated the plate, wondering if I should eat another when-


That… sounded a lot closer than all the other roars.

I turned around and…

C-craackkk, crashhh!!!!

A giant tree was pushed aside by a large, unpleasantly familiar figure.

“A-a-a b-b-behe-”


Stomp, stomp, stomp!

“Hiii!!!! No, no, no, wait, wait, don’t come here!!!!”

My magic stove!! My meatballs!!

The Behemoth suddenly launched itself into the air and I reflexively closed my eyes.

There was a resounding thump and crash!!!

However, when I opened my eyes, the Behemoth was… gone?



I finally noticed the unusual shadow around me. The Behemoth was on top of me!! More precisely, it was on top of the double barriers!!

I-I’m saved!!

Stomp! Stomp! Stomp!

Ugh, even though the physical impact did not reach me, the awful sound and psychological impact still hurt!!


S-shut it already!!

Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! STOMP!!

“Please go away, just go away, please! You can’t get through the barrier and my familiars will be back soon. Speaking of which…”

“”Fer! Grandpa Gon!! Sui!! Dora-chan!! Helpp!! The Behemoth is here!!!””

Clang, crack!

Arggh, it’s starting to bite at the barrier…

Can I just say this? The sight of that hideous mouth filled with large fangs did nothing for my mental health I tell you. Nothing!!



Urgh, drool was leaking out of its open mouth. So disgusting, so horrible…

I really, really don’t want to test the integrity of this barrier. So what if it was a double barrier? I would die if it crack just a little!

Fortunately, the Behemoth eventually lose interest in me. It ambled over to… My worktable!

“Hey, stop it!!”

The Behemoth ignored me as it begin to chomp through all the neatly lined-up fried meatballs on my makeshift earth table.

“”Hey!! Everyone, the Behemoth is eating your dinner!! It’s eating your meatballs!!!””

I swear, if that doesn’t bring the cavalry here, nothing will.

Then, something worse happened.

After chomping through most of the fried meatball, it aimed for my pan of sweet and sour sauce. My sweet and sour sauce, on my magic stove!!!

“My stove!!!” I shrieked as the stupid creature bit through the stove and upended it as it tried to get at the sauce and the one plate of nicely plated meatballs. “You wretched thing!! How dare you!!!”

Somehow, my Mithril Spear was in my hand as I charge forward and stabbed the horrible creature in the back. “Damn you! Damn you! Why the heck is your hide so harrddd!!!??”

My Mithril Spear with its supposedly outstanding sharpness, could not pierce through the Behemoth hide at all.

“Oraa!! Oraa!! Oraa!!!”

I barely managed to scratch its hide. The Behemoth turned around and… I swear it leered at me! I lowered my spear, preparing to charge again when it opened its mouth and…


I was blown away by the sheer power of its roar, bouncing backwards and skidding for a few meters before finally stopping.

“C-curse you…”

The Behemoth leapt forward and batted its paw at me.


Somehow, even though I found myself rolling away, my body suffered no damage. The double barriers really worked, but… I was still being bat about the clearing like a ball by this stupid Behemoth, who ignored all of my attempts to stab him and ate all of my meatballs. This root of all evil even destroyed my precious magic stove!

Clang! Clang! Clang!

“Haahhh… hahhhh… hahh… how do you like that, hahh!!!??” I shouted as I smacked the Behemoth with my Mithril Spear.

The Behemoth paused.

Wait, did my attack work?

It looked up, and then…

… ran away into the forest.

“… what the heck?”

There was a rustle of something and I clutched my spear tightly, but all that came out of the forest were my familiars. They all rushed over, riding on Grandpa Gon’s back.

“Master, what happened-”

They all stared at the devastation around me.

“Th-th- this…!!!!??”

“Ah,” I said, “you’re a bit too late. The Behemoth came and…” I waved a hand at the destruction, “killed my magic stove and ate all the meatballs I just made…”


Ah, as expected, my familiars were super angry.

Well, I’m pretty angry myself, but… now that the Behemoth has left the premises, I suddenly felt exhausted.




“Ah… I’m tired…” I said as I lay splayed out on the ground.



I look sideways at my familiars.

“… hungry?”




“”Sui is hungry…””

“… haahhh… hold on,” I called up [Net Super] while lying down, and indiscriminately press the buttons for sweet buns. Lots and lots of sweet buns.

After checking out three boxes of buns, I continued to lie on the ground as Sui and Dora-chan open the packets of buns for everyone.

“”Aruji~ eat~”” Sui squished a bun against my cheek.

“Ah, Sui-tan is still the best,” I said with tears in my eyes as I chew on the sweet bun.

““Sui will destroy the bad monster that broke Aruji’s stove~!””

“… sure, let’s destroy him.”

Umu, destroy.”


“”Let’s absolutely kill that thing dead.””

“Absolutely, and you know what, I’m going with you guys this time.”

    Well that looks like enough trauma for a vegetarian cuisine week for the master. But good job mc, he was so angry he actually tried to stab that thief

  2. Cuchillo

    I hope this leads to his familiars revealing that they didn’t actually put a barrier on him since he has that no damage skill from the gods

  3. Kefrayba

    Looks like Mukouda will go shopping new stove within a few chapters 😀 I guess he will have to buy an even bigger one to accommodate all 4 familairs.

  4. Nobody

    Just how small is this barrier? Either it only has a diameter of 2-2.5 meters or he was eating oddly far away from the stove and the rest of the food. Logically he should’ve been at or next to his cooking station and therefore could/should’ve stayed put, thereby saving his belongings – unless the barrier doesn’t do squat for anything apart from his person? Seems like an odd deus ex machina by the author.

    1. PyroJack

      I feel like the barrier is rooted on him so the barrier will follow him wherever he went so when he ran from his station the station is barrierless

    2. Gumihou

      Yeah, I had to rethink what a ‘barrier’ is too when translating this chapter.

  5. Otaku Hikikomori

    Well, everyone is pissed.
    Thanks for the treat.

  6. Am I Un-Dead Yet?

    My MELONS!

    Oh, could it be? Maybe this is it? Perhaps this time finally, Mukoda will get into the proper mindset about an isekai adventure, and that is kill some monsters, be brave and fight them. To be fair Mukoda didn’t see monsters are dangerous so far, scary but not dangerous to him and his stuff since his pet squad is OP++.
    Thanks for the chapter! Awesome translation! May God bless you!

      Nah. I’ve read the mtl of this novel and I’m up to date with the latest chapter.

      I think people have the wrong perception of Mukouda and this novel. This is a slice-of- life set in an isekai. It can also be classed as a comedy and a cooking novel. Mukouda is not a warrior and anyone thinking he is going to become a cliche isekai hero needs to look for another web novel.

      He is a regular guy who got plunked down into this world by pure accident since he was walking next to the three “actual” heroes when they were summoned. He only got an item box and appraisal skill by default since he also got isekaid. He is not ambitious, he is not power hungry and he only learned magic and fighting skills reluctantly. Sure he eventually fights, but he doesn’t do it often and his familiars do 99 percent of the fighting.

      The dude lucked out that he can cook and his ability to summon items from Earth led to his contracts with gluttonous powerful familiars and the deals with the deities. He has been told that he can never return to earth so he tries to make a life for himself in this new land. The author made him incredibly lucky because all the familiars and people he encounters somehow like Japanese food? All the gods and goddesses like the products only available thru Net Super? Of course readers have to suspend their disbelief …

    Mukouda finally get wild, this maybe the 1st time if I remember right
    Let’s take down the Behemoth, drag it to the guild, have it dismanted and make the Behemoth steak for dinner

    1. Felipe

      no, it isn’t the first time, there was also a time with giant ants at a dungeon (mukoda REALLY hates insects), even fer was impressed

  9. Felipe

    The mc could also add that with his stove broken it will be a while before the glutton party will be able to enjoy homemade food again, that would be enough justification for them to make the behemoths become a endangered species

    1. Gumihou

      I think they are already endangered…

  10. Felipe

    Wow I never thought that they would actually let their precious food unprotected, ahahaha that stupid behemoth is soooo dead

    1. Gumihou

      Yup yup, attacking the food is a big no no

  11. MyTigerNacho

    Hahahaha I never thought a day would come when our boi would so willingly go after such a strong monster. Well, if his familiars got hurt he’d def attack a monster, but the author knew a Behemoth could never hurt the 4 musketeers so he got the Behemoth to destroy the next most precious thing: the magic stove!!!! lol looking forward to the hunt!
