I’m a D-Rank Adventurer Volume 3 Chapter 2 Part 1

Chapter Two: The Counter Battle

“–Jirei, please watch me! I’ll do my best!”
Rafine waved energetically at me from the arena-like field.
“Oh, Gambareru, oisshiteruzo!”
Sitting in the hastily constructed bleachers, I waved exaggeratedly in return, cheering her on in a monotone voice.
“…Didn’t plan on this though.”
Seeing Rafine cheerfully warming up, I heaved a heavy sigh.
“Jirei, don’t worry so much. I set up a battle arena so they can’t die. The ladies will be fine.”
“It’s not like I’m worried or anything.”
Aldi laughed heartily beside me, … Read the rest

Something must have happened to make the ever-cheerful Leti like this. There was definitely a story.
Well, it didn’t concern me. It didn’t concern me, but–
“This garbage–“
“Shut up.”
I stood up, blocking Leti’s view.
“….Did I mishear, D-rank? For me-“
“Didn’t you hear me tell you to ‘shut up’? Don’t open your mouth, it’s annoying.”
“I’ll take that as a joke. To me, the Prince of Forte Independence and the [Genius] Hero–“
“Oh, you’re a big shot, huh. I see, I see, since you came at me out of nowhere, … Read the rest

“…Huh? We can’t enter the country?”
I blurted out in a stupid voice when I heard the shocking news at the reception desk.

“We apologize…while we can only allow entry into the [General District], entering the [Special District] where the Magic Library is located presents difficulties, so we cannot allow you all in…”
The receptionist bowed deeply and looked apologetic.
We can’t enter the land…? But Aldi contacted them magically and got permission, didn’t he?
“Um… I’m pretty sure I got permission properly.”
“Yes. We received a message from Mr. Aldi through the Magic … Read the rest

Chapter One: The Nation of Hero Support

“–So you came to see me, huh?”
In the headmaster’s office of the Magic Academy, Aldi leaned back in his large executive chair, crossed his arms, and spoke in a refined, distant voice.
“Oh, yes, I thought you could get me permission.”
“Of course I can. No problem at all.”
“Oho, as expected from Aldi! Then…”
As I humbly tried to say “Please”.
“I can do it, but… whether I ‘want to’ or not is another story, right?”
Aldi twisted his mouth into an evil grin, making me angry. That bastard…!… Read the rest

I’m a D-Rank Adventurer Volume 3 Prologue part 2

I woke up with a snap. Or rather, I was brought back to reality.
Still lying down, I looked out the window – it was still early morning. As my unfocused eyes gradually came into focus, my consciousness quickly awoke.
“…..This sucks.”
The moment I came to, an unwanted realization rushed into my mind and made me curse.
This sucked so much.
I see, that’s how it was. This is reality.
In other words, perfectly evading my pursuers and lazing around was the dream.
This situation where I’m still on the run is … Read the rest

Prologue: Unexpectedly Arrested
I think humans should be more free, I thought.
“Lord Jirei, you must be tired. Please lie down here. Don’t worry, I don’t have any inappropriate thoughts. So go ahead, make yourself comfortable…”
“–Ray, are you hungry? I made some bento, let’s eat together.”
“–Whoa! We’re flying! This car is flying in the sky!”
Wasting days working at jobs you don’t even want just to make a living, entrusting your will to others, being jerked around.
Can such a life really be called free?
No. Absolutely not!
People should … Read the rest

I’m a D-Rank Adventurer Volume 2 Interlude + Afterword

Interlude: Enri

In a dark and twisted world, a girl laughed.

Blood dripped from both hands bound by chains, and a faint red adorned her dull silver hair.

The space surrounding the girl was distorted, and through those gaps, beautiful girls were projected as if from a projector.

A girl with stunning angelic beauty, her hair as white as snow.

A girl with transparent aqua-colored hair, lacking nuances in her expression.

A girl with fiery red hair tied on both sides, longing for slaughter.

A girl with a carefree smile and a cute cowlick on her peach-colored hair…

Each of … Read the rest

Epilogue 2: Me, a D-Rank Adventurer, Somehow Recruited into a Hero Party and Being Followed by a Princess

–Seriously, how did this happen?

“Hiii…hiii…what’s with her, way too persistent…why am I going through this…?”

Under a cloudless sunny sky, the refreshing breeze hits my cheeks as I race down the well-maintained road.

“….I’m sure I lost her. Just for a sec–“

“Jirei samaaa! …Huh, he’s not here. I could have sworn I heard his voice…Where did that man go?”

Too tired to keep running, I duck into an abandoned cafe to rest for a bit, but then the door slams … Read the rest

The next day, a delicious smell wafted into my nostrils as I awoke with a slight pang of hunger. Still groggy, I thought Charl had cooked me breakfast, but when I got up…there was Eve in a cute apron, with a freshly made, healthy breakfast.

I was confused. With a straight face she said, “Good morning. Ray, your hair is a mess,” and then smiled softly at me. I didn’t understand at all. So confused, I just asked:

[Are you trying to make me fall in love with you?]

And her answer made me even more confused and I froze. … Read the rest

Epilogue: Ancient Relics Exhibition

“…Wow, ancient artifacts are really fascinating! The designs are so cool! I, I want them!”

“Yeah, they’re cool. I want them too.”

–A whole week passed since then.

After that, I went to a certain place to take care of some business and then retired to an inn-no, I mean, secluded myself to recast the “dimensional resurrection” that had worn off. I spent several days in a state of enforced fasting, rearranging the spell and performing it again. It was incredibly hard, and I felt like I was going to die.

After that, I stayed hidden … Read the rest
