Chapter 42 -Tournament bracket

Prev | Next

On the next morning, we came to【Body reinforcement temple】.

「I’m Seiji, a participant of『Men’s division』.」
「I’m Aya, a participant of『Women’s division』.」
「I’m Elena, a healer.」

「Participants, this way.
As for healers, please go to that place.」

「Seiji-sama and Aya-san, good luck.」
「Ou, see you later.」
「Do your best~ *waves*」

Before parting with Elena, I gave her a bag of【Candy】and a PET water bottle.

Me and Aya are showed to the participants’ waiting room and was given a wooden tag with a player number painted on it.

Me and Aya’s participant’s number are both「No. 2」.

「The weapons are arranged in this box.
Please choose weapons to your liking.」

When you peek inside the box, there are various kinds of weapons arranged.

Aya chose a『Short blade』.

I also ransacked the weapons and found something good.

A『Replica sword』, it’s the same thing as the one I bought yesterday.
Of course, its blade has been dulled.

After so much trouble, I chose this『Replica sword』!
We’ll see the fruit of my practice.

After a while, the participants have all been gathered.
Including us, there are 6 women and 24 men.

There are a lot less women.

The【Tournament bracket】are posted on the wall of the participants’ waiting room where all of us are gathered.

Aya needs to win 3 matches to become the champion.
While I need to win 3 matches to pass through the Block A, then semi-finals afterwards and qualify to fight in the finals.

I used【Appraisal】to the opponents and look for the players we’ll be fighting with.

Aya’s opponent on her first match is the woman with big breasts named『Luca』, her weapon is a big『Axe』.
Her opponent on the second match is the woman named『Lela』who’s equipped with a『Rapier』and a metal shield on her left hand, she wore a full body silver【Armor】, wearing such an armor, aren’t you well prepared?

Her final opponent will probably be the woman named『Halva』.

The【Appraisal】showed that the woman’s race is『Dragonkin』.
She’s level 18, her overall status is also stronger than Aya.
She will meet Aya in the finals but for Aya to win the championship seemed to be hopeless.

And the man next to her is also strong.
The same with『Halva』, he’s also a『Dragonkin』, they are probably siblings.
Level 20, his status is also stronger than me.
Since that person is in Block D, it’s a relief that we won’t meet until the finals.

My opponent on my first match is the youth named『Riche』, his fists are equipped with knuckles.

My second match’s opponent is the shirtless giant named『Jidoka』who’s equipped with a giant『Hammer』.
He’s about 2.5 m tall and yeah, there’s also that kind of race.

My final match’s opponent in Block A will probably the man named『Macala』, equipped with 2『Axes』and clothed in animal fur.

As for who’ll win in Block B, it’s hard to tell.

In Block C, it would probably be the man named『Rondo』, he wore a full body golden armor with a huge『Sword』as a weapon.
Still, that armor is really bad ass~

As for Block D, of course, it would be the『Dragonkin』man.
His name is『Gadol』, equipped with a『Spear』the same as the female『Dragonkin』.

「Aya, it seems impossible to win the championship this time.」
「Look, those people.」
「Those people, are they strong?」
「Yeah, you’re by no means their match.」
「Lies~! But I did special training!」
「Well, even if this week is no good, we could come again next week.」

「Even niichan can’t possibly win?」
「Hm, I wouldn’t know if I don’t try.」
「Is that so?~」

When I look outside the window of the participants’ waiting room, there I see a courtyard.
The building, that this participants’ waiting room is part of, formed a donut shape and there seems to be an arena in the courtyard.

On the other side is the room where the medical team is located, I can see Elena from the window.
Elena noticed us so I waved my hand and Elena also waved back at us.

The second floor of the donut-shaped building is a stair-like seats for the audience and packed with spectators.
Perhaps, they are betting for the outcome of this competition.
I’d like to know what our『Odds』are.

After awhile, the official began to explain.
「I’ll now explain the order of how the matches will be carried out.
First, the first round of the men’s division then the second round,
followed by the first match of the women’s division,
after that, we’ll continue with the men’s division and women’s division alternately.
Then, please take care as the competition will begin soon.」

After the explanation of the official, the referee and commentator took their place, it seems the competition finally starts.

「Well then, men’s division, first round, first match begins.
Men’s division, participants no. 2 and no. 3, please come up to the arena.」

「Alrighty, I’m off!」
「Good luck niichan!」

I’m fired up and went up to the arena.

    「Lies~! But I did a special training!」

    Y, some few hours of “special” training will be enough to make up for years of training and experience. Sigh… The brother and sister duo are idiots…

      It seems she’s thinking like she’s one of those protagonist that when they come out of their special training, they become OP or something 🙂

        Problem is that it’s still rather likely that it’ll turn out that way anyways.

        Anyways, thanks for the translation. Oh, and a couple of (starts as related) errors. Sorry, I tend to get carried away:/

        Please drop the ‘a’ from ‘a special training’ its either ‘special training’ or something defined like ‘a training regimen’ or ‘a training course/program’. (but, “I did special training!” is shorter to read and write, so I guess that’d be preferred)
        Same with magic, sand and water. Cant pick a single instance of something that is an umbrella-term for an indetermined amount/mass. it can be a magic spell, magic ability or magic skill though. most translaters who do asian->english forget this :/

        A couple of other rather prevalent errors would be your mismatch in verb usage and how many objects/people this refers to. i.e.:
        >> equipped with 2『Axe』and clothe in animal fur. >> equipped with 2『Axes』and clothed in animal fur.
        >> what’s our『Odds』 >> what our『Odds』 are.

        Oh, and why are they referred to as ‘player’? Did the author actually use that? In a tournament, you usually use the term ‘contestant’ or ‘fighter’. (also, ‘numbers no.’ reads as ‘numbers number’)
        >> Men’s division, contestants no. 2 and no. 3, please come up to the arena.


        • Jei January 8, 2016 / 9:17 am

          thanks! I’ll keep those in mind 🙂

          EDIT: Fixed them! Arigatou-ne!


  2. kirindas January 7, 2016 / 11:03 pm

    Thanks for the new chapter!

    ‘The【Appraisal】showed that the woman’s race is『Dragonew』.’
    Dragonewt? Or is it the author’s own race?


    • Jei January 7, 2016 / 11:07 pm

      Oopps! fixed, it should be dragonkin.


    • Jei January 7, 2016 / 11:07 pm

      Oopps! fixed, it should be dragonkin. Thanks!!~


    • jon0221 January 22, 2016 / 5:53 am

      That would be funny because ‘DragoNEW’, ’cause they’re new! Get it? Dragon, new. HA HA HA… I’m sorry.


  3. hayate90 January 8, 2016 / 7:41 am

    thanks for the chapter.
    still, the match starts with no.2 and 3, what happens to no.1?


    • Jei January 8, 2016 / 9:19 am

      Wait-in, i dunno if that’s the proper term but refer to the illustration there..

      EDIT: No. 1 is a seed participant. You can know more about it here.


  4. Amuris January 8, 2016 / 12:24 pm

    I know I shouldn’t expect him to understand but…he does know that any good swordsmen could cut through something like gold armor, right? no? of course he doesn’t. Dumbest rpg trope…

    Well, anyway, stories like these are always unfair to the natives. Their efforts and standards don’t mean anything. Oh well, still going to enjoy this.


    • Jei January 8, 2016 / 7:11 pm

      Eto.. in this instance, they’re using weapons with dulled blades-ne.. and besides, you can’t just believe that blades can cut through metal like butter… at least you must experience it first hand to believe.

      And also, this is a world with magic, I wouldn’t be surprised if that armor has some enchantment or something… there are so many factors other than being a good swordsman here…


      • Void September 16, 2016 / 5:19 pm

        I think he meant that a good swordsman, can find the gaps between the plates of one’s armour, and either stab or cut the person through em’.
        It’s completely illogical for anyone to use a sword to actually cut armour apart, that’s not how you use a sword.
        But yeah, magic-whatevs. The only thing they’re missing is some sort of vibration-magic in order to induce some sort of a super-cutting enchantment on their equipment.


  5. nosiop January 14, 2016 / 11:57 am

    Thanks for the chapter.


  6. Seinvolf February 6, 2016 / 4:27 am

    Thank u always for ur great work…

    It’s time to duel~


  7. Void September 16, 2016 / 5:20 pm

    It just occurred to me that the MC could’ve just used Concealment upon himself and the 2 lolis, in order to sneak into the crystal’s room, rather than go through this tournament.
    When stories break~
