My second day in Anazumu.

When I woke up, I immediately checked my status screen. HP and MP had fully recovered.
Sleep is incredible, isn’t it? Automatic recovery probably speeds up, when you sleep or eat.

It was like that in Dragonar Story, too. Staying at an in fully recovered you.
That’s amazing, you know.

I closed the status screen, yawned, and then looked at my surroundings. It was currently sunrise, which wasn’t much different from sunrise on Earth. Today, I’d try to move on from this place.

I chanted a Water Ball to wash my face and drink some water. I had to chant it twice, to achieve that.
Still, it only consumed 4 MP. Each cast of a level 1 Water Ball produced around the amount of water you’d get from a 120-yen juicebox, out of thin air.

That’s awfully convenient! I should focus on raising water magic for a while.

I decided to haphazardly place a stick on the ground upright and then go straight in the direction it would fall. The stick fell forward from my point of view.

While advancing straight ahead, probably the right direction, I noticed a rabbit like the one yesterday1, so I stabbed the bone knife I’d made into the top of its head, defeating it.

Let’s have it for breakfast.

When I dismantled it with the bone knife, it became clear how much my abilities had improved. Naturally, also due to the knife, it was still hard to dismantle to it, but it was considerably easier than yesterday.

Looking at it like this, I apparently didn’t make very good use of the meat and skin yesterday. Yes, I was truly wasteful.

I drained the blood from the meat and cut it into suitably large pieces for eating. What about dealing with the blood? I didn’t, too much of a bother.

…Now I have left-over meat.

I thought about drying it and taking it with me, but I currently couldn’t carry that much luggage. With a heavy heart, I decided to leave it behind.

Yes, it’s a waste. Still, I ate a lot of it, you know. I should be fine skipping lunch, I guess.

I took the new bones, skin and the things that looked like purple souls, and started walking again. I was planning to walk as much as possible today.

After I’d been walking for a while, I came across another rabbit.
Let’s turn it into experience points.

I approached it, planning to bring it down quickly, but on a closer look, it was being attacked by some black shadow. When I strained my eyes, I noticed that it was a dog, similar to a bulldog. It was about the same size as the rabbit.

I wonder, was it about to prey on the rabbit? However, it won’t turn out like that. I’ll defeat both the rabbit and the dog.
Still, being bitten by that dog would probably be painful. I’ll vanquish them with long-distance attacks.

I let loose two Flame Balls, one for the rabbit and dog each. The Flame Ball scored a clean hit on the dog’s face, causing it to yelp in apparent pain. The rabbit, who had already taken damage from the dog, was apparently defeated, but the latter endured it.

“Tch,” I unintentionally clicked my tongue.

Oh, I leveled up. Getting a level up in the middle of a battle is probably a rather good experience.

“Growl~~…”
Huh, it got angry. Everyone will get angry, if they’re attacked, won’t they~? They sure will.

The dog seemed to notice me, and ran at me.
I guess it’ll try to bite me.

Therefore, I dodged and stabbed it with the bone knife, which apparently brought it down.

…Hm~.
I wonder, do these dogs eat those rabbits? Dogs have good noses, don’t they?

…I’ve got an idea! Let’s try this later. For now, I’ll check my status screen.

Incidentally, this time I allocated three STP into MP, two in C and W, and 1 in A and S. I invested all my SKP into water magic.

Footnotes:

  1. After seeing the number of magic cores mentioned in chapter 10 and that the whole blood draining/dismantling didn’t make sense, I realized that this is a new rabbit, like the one yesterday, and not the rabbit he killed yesterday.
  2. It says level 5 in the original, but judging from the stats, this is supposed to be level 3.
  3. It’s 21 (6) in the original, likely a typo.
