A New Power

From the Divine Gifts that required me to get 1 million points, the necessary abilities are, oh, right, first let’s organize them.
The sword related and hand-to-hand combat ones, and all the ones I can’t use because I don’t have hands or feet to use them are out of the question.
For fire magic, water magic, and all those magic related abilities, I don’t have mana, so they’re excluded.
For the ones that are left, let’s analyze them carefully on whether they’re useful abilities for a vending machine. First of all is this one.

《Telekinesis》, or PK1, you could say; it’s the psychic power to be able to move something without touching it, na. Let’s look at the description.

《It is possible to manipulate any body within a one meter radius around yourself. However, it is restricted by weight and is limited to products only.》

VendM 037: Falling

Falling

The ground split and crumbled.

Together with the earth, I’m in the middle of a nosedive. Looking upwards I see a ceiling of earth; up there, holes are opening up everywhere. Those holes aren’t that big, so even though I fell, the eight-legged alligator’s bones cover up the holes from above, and so it seems they were spared from free-falling.

And then, turning my eyes below, there are clouds. Because I have Barrier affixed to me, there’s no feeling of air pressure, but … I can understand that I’m falling at a tremendous speed!
Eeeeee-, once you fall out of the ground there’s a sky, it’s fantasy alright!
Uooooo-, we’re so high you can’t see the ground, eeee-, aaa-, c,c,calm down!
First I should figure out the present circumstance. You need to understand your own situation!

The place is, in the middle of the clouds!
The situation is, in the middle of falling!
The result is, destruction by crashing!

VendM 036: The Fighting Vending Machine

The Fighting Vending Machine

For buying time, with <Barrier> repelling its attacks like this, if it’s just enduring, I might be able to hold out some how, but if this goes on and it heads towards the community, I don’t know whether the Hunter Association’s fortress walls can hold up to this.
At the very least, whether each and every person would be saved like the previous time is doubtful.

The always helpful inn’s Okami-san and Munami. My most regular customers, the gatekeepers Karios and Gols. The three morning regulars, no, with the granddaughter who’s joined them recently, it’s four. The contraceptive buying Shirley. The blonde ojou-sama and her black-clothed shadow, the two money-changers, and so many other customers are all in that community.

Alligator Killing

“Leader. The gakujinma are getting up onto the bank. It looks like they’re shivering because it’s cold, yo-. Seems like they’re lying down listlessly.” (Red)

When Red, who had gone to scout the situation of the bog, came back, he gave his report.
Leader Keryoil, sprawled on top of a large rock, said, “Good job,” lifting a hand.

“It looks like a good situation, but even if you say they can’t move, the other ones of those guys will respond if we attack. Vice-Leader, is it possible to use Fog Magic to obstruct their vision?”(Keryoil)

“It’s not like I can’t, but if you wanted me to cover the entire bog, it’s impossible.”(Fulmina)

Oo, Fog Magic huh? Mist floating above a bog has an elegant sound to it, na. (more…)

Dealing with Alligators

The boar cargo cart came to a stop due to a cave-in in the rocky mountains; lying down on top of the cart’s canopy, lying fully stretched out, is a man.

FUAAAAaaa. We’re about to enter those guys’ habitat, so you guys, look sharp, yo-“

“Then, I think Leader should come down from the top of the canopy.”

“Maybe I should stab him with my spear from underneath.”

I think it’s a good idea. Nice suggestion, Red-White twins. (more…)

Companion for the Journey

I’m staring at the sky over the meadow with clouds floating over it here and there, but I’m being transported by a girl … if you think about it too deeply, you’ll lose. About three hours have passed since we departed early in the morning, so for the moment we are taking a short break.

The large unasusu still seems to have more than enough strength, and Ramis, who ran alongside it, also doesn’t show any weariness in her actions. It’s not the first time I’ve thought it, but what an outrageous physical ability this girl has.

Spring is Coming

“Karios-san, your collar is crooked.”

“O,ou, thanks. I think I’m going to be coming home late, so even though it’ll be a bit lonely, don’t cry.”

“Ok. I’ll be waiting for you with the stew you like with a lot of eggs in it. Really, REALLY try not to get hurt.”

“It hurts so bad to leave you behind, that it feels like my body’s being torn in two … but this is work. Sorry.”

“Yes, I don’t want to be apart from you either. But I also don’t want to be a hindrance in your work. I’ll swallow my tears – -“

VendM 031: Canned Oden

Canned Oden

The winter at Seiryu’s lakeside is quite harsh; it’s not quite to the degree of Japan’s snowy areas, but there’s regularly about 5 cms of snow piling up. Any more than this and it’s possible the accumulated snow will crush the tents, so it’s seldom that more than 1 meter of snow accumulates … I hope.

It appears that the monsters on this level hibernate deep underground for the winter and the commissions for the Hunters to subjugate them or collect materials from them are rare, so it’s standard to just hole-up in the community, is what the gatekeeper Karios revealed while eating oden. (more…)

VendM 030: Expedition and Bargaining

Expedition and Bargaining

“It’s fine if it’s after winter passes, but do you guys have any interest in joining us on an expedition?”

At Leader Keryoil’s sudden request, I take a single breath and,

“Too bad.”

Is how I responded. That request was basically what I expected, so there was no need to be confused.

If I go, that means Ramis will get dragged along too as part of a set. Making the decision all on my own isn’t a good circumstance. I’ll leave her decision to herself.

VendM 029: Overthrow, Chain Restaurant!

Overthrow, Chain Restaurant!

“Now then, the second great Overthrow, Chain Restaurant’s Annihilation meeting will begin!”

“Uoooooo-!”

To keep up with the overly-worked up men, the embarrassed way the female shopkeepers, who weren’t riding that wave of enthusiasm, raised their fists in the air was pretty moe.
Today, like the previous time, they have the same representative . So it looks like Munami was decided to be the advance leader.
