Toaru Ossan no VRMMO Katsudouki

[The Daily VRMMO Activities of a Certain Middle-Aged Man]

This is a translation of the web novel version of Toaru Ossan no VRMMO Katsudouki by Shiina HowaHowa.
Purchase the light novel version…. [here]

My translations are edited to try to preserve as much of the author’s “flare” as possible while being crunched through the translation process.
… I can’t say I always succeed though …

Synopsis: 38-year-old Tanaka Daichi’s childhood dream of playing a VRMMO has finally come to life. As he creates his character, he decides to choose skills that are considered useless by others, since he has no interest in playing like a main character. Follow the adventures of Daichi as he strives to use his mismatched set of worthless skills to achieve his dream goal of simply being able to enjoy an alternate life in a virtual reality.
