Extra: The Hero and Gozoh

 

Wataru Nishimi was a hero.
However, even to a hero, a debt of twenty-three hundred gold coins is a bit… no, is fairly… no, is really painful.
And because of that, he stopped using the suite, as well as lowered the rank of his meals.
Although inn fees were provided by Haku, he decided that to set it aside for the payments since it couldn’t be helped.

Wataru moved into a normal room, but it wasn’t particularly troubling either. Rather, the futon was considerably comfortable. He felt that it’d be fine even if he just stayed in one of them from the start next time he came.
Moreover, he could enter the onsen however many times he wanted, as well as use the game room.
He’d want to come and stay at the onsen inn even if there weren’t a dungeon.

“… But this debt is horrible huh… haah…”

Wataru sighed while eating cream stew in the dining room.

“Oh? What’s wrong, Pudding An-chan?”
“Ah, thanks… umm, Dwarf-san?”
“It’s Gozoh. Thanks for the pudding yesterday. So, what’s with the sighing?”
“Ah, I’m Wataru. And well, it’s just… I have a bit of a debt.”

Wataru gave a small laugh as though to lie to himself.

“Haah, so that’s it? Something serious happened right after that yesterday huh. After you brought Kehma to the room? What happened?”
“Well, it was just something with this.

Saying that, he showed him the dice.

“I was just a little self-confident.”
“Be careful, gambling can destroy your body you know? That receptionist, that Ichika girl? She fell into slavery after accumulating debt from gambling. She looks pretty happy now though… actually, today it looks like she’s seeing the end of the world for some reason.”
“Ahaha, I’ll take care.”

Wataru smiled wryly, figuring that her name sounded familiar, and that it was probably because of her punishment.

“Let’s see, in debt to Kehma? I haven’t seen that guy gambling at all, but… between you and me, my relations with Kehma are good. I could tell him you need to wait a little to pay if you need.”
“Haha, thank you for that… Kehma-san said that my installments will be interest free, so well it’s alright.”
“Ah is that so? It’s all good then.”

While saying that, Gozoh drank another swig of alcohol from his clay decanter.

“Wait, is that alcohol? I heard that this inn didn’t deal in alcohol though?”
“Yeah, I brought it. I traded for it directly with a merchant, they overlook it since I just bring in what I buy for myself… Want to drink some? You gave me that pudding yesterday.”
“Itadakimasu.”

To tell the truth, Wataru hadn’t drank alcohol before. Summoned to this world at the age of seventeen, he continued with his Japanese customs even here and didn’t drink or use tobacco until the age of twenty. And now that he thought about it, he was already twenty. Though he was already at the age he could drink, there hadn’t been any chances.
Wataru accepted the clay decanter from Gozoh and suddenly drank it.
… The alcohol had an amazingly intense flavor. However, Wataru didn’t think he disliked that.

“Hooh, you’re a good drinker.”
“That’s the first time I drank alcohol, but I think I like it.”
“First time? Fumu, then you’re a natural. Well, drink up, I have others.”
“… Then I’ll accept your offer. Itadakimasu.”
“Aye, you should drink alcohol even if something bad happens.”

Gozoh took out another clay decanter he brought in with him and drank as well.
While the two were drinking, Gozoh’s companion, Roppu, came along. Although Gozoh was a dwarf, Roppu was a human woman.

“Oh, you’re drinking! And you, I haven’t seen your face, Newcomer-san?”
“Ah, I’m Wataru Nishimi. A hero.”
“Heeh, you were a hero huh.”
“Hero!? Isn’t that S-Rank? Eeh, amazing, wait you were drinking with him without knowing that? … Let me in!”

And so, Roppu began drinking alcohol with them.
Luckily or not, no one stopped them.

“Eeeh, twenty three hundred!? You racked up a huge amount.”
“Ye~ah~. Kehma-san, he’s a demon! A devil! Kehma-san is!”
“Oi oi, that’s rude. A demon or devil would’ve let him go with around fifty gold!”
“Uu, half a year of hard work…”
“Eeh, you can pay it? S-Rank is amazing~”
“I could get it in a single month if I got serious though! I won’t do it since it’d cause a grudge though.”
“Riiight, it’s better to stop before causing one of those~. Well, drink up, drink up. Today’s on me!”
“Itadakimaaasu!”

Wataru continued drinking whatever alcohol Gozoh took out.

“Hey heeeey, Wataru-kun. What did you do to Kehma-san? I don’t think twenty-three hundred gold is normal.”
“Weeell, it was a bit of a misunderstanding… you know that dog eared child serving tables here yesterday? That child.”
“Yeah, that Jou-chan huh… Wataru did something bad then?”
“Hahaha, yeah… thinking that tiny girl was having a hard time… didn’t I have to save her if I could? As a man.”
“Wooaah~, Wataru-kun is cool~… but it’s useless you know? Slaves are a person’s property. And besides, that child’s madly in love with Kehma-san, she’s not dissatisfied with her current position at all!”
“Looks like it huh… haaah, doing something unnecessary for a twenty-three hundred gold coin debt… 23,000,000 Lyon huh…”
“Alright, drink up. Today’s my treat, there’s still alcohol!”
“Itadakimaaaasu!”

He left it all to Gozoh and drank the alcohol Gozoh took out with vigor. With a burp, he sat the clay decanter he’d emptied onto the table.

“Hey Gozoh, it’s not too early to go to Kantra’s place you know? He said there’s still alcohol at the smithy’s spot you know? And it’s fine even if we make more noise there you know?”
“Oooh, right, Roppu, you’re a genius! Oooi, Kinue-san, bring some snacks! Drink this Wataru, follow me!”
“I’m coming, Gozoh-san!”
“Ah, Kinue-san. The bill. Can you bring it?”
“Yes, certainly. I’ll have Rei bring it all. Are deep-fried potatoes alright?”
“I want those soft and flaky fried things!”

In this way, they hit it off with Wataru spewing his complaints. However, as for them becoming comrades that would travel the world under the name of [Team Bacchus], that is a story for another day. [1]
Furthermore, [Team Bacchus]’ main directive was to [Drink All of the Delicious Alcohol From Around the World].

“Mmm~, so alcohol was such a delicious thing~”

The next day, Wataru woke up feeling refreshed, not even having a hangover.
He didn’t know if it was in his original nature, or perhaps because of a hero’s abilities. However, he was able to enjoy alcohol without needing to worry about how he’d feel the next day. That would be good to do from then on.

Since he’d planned on going to the dungeon [Cave of Desires] today, he would have had to change his plans if he’d had a hangover.
And since he’d need to leave soon, this might be the final day that he could properly look through the dungeon.
So he intended to go as far in as he could today.

“… Guess it’s time?”

Wataru, equipped with his skills as a hero, went into the dungeon.

    Go to sleep or should i wait ziru post more….. this is hard choice!!!!

  2. Tasty chapter? Thanks for it. These extras are nice just like that stalker obsessive receptionist. Glad I ate before reading this.

      1. It’s most likely it. The author either changed the amount or forgot it between the chapters and made a mistake.

        1. He was saying to not be rude towards demons or devils, they would’ve let him go at just 50 gold…

          Sorry for spoiling the joke line for you =(

  3. Thank u always for ur great work…
    ^^…

    Ahahahaha, it seem the hero meet it’s soulmate huh…
    XD…

    And Keima + Meat misunderstanding still not cleared yet although a little bit more it will be as clear as sunray…
    XD…

    1. But Meat likes her name you know? If in a few years her name is unchanged she could throw herself at Kehma you know? If anything it’s an advantageous tactic of turning a deception into unshakable truth you know? Ah I want to see little puppies sleeping with Kehma in a huddle you know?

  4. (∩◉ᴥ◉)⊃━☆゚.* Thanks~

    I think the 50 gold coins are for the “nuisance fees”.

    As for rions, probably that world’s money. 2300 gold coins = 23M copper coins, so we could assume that 1 copper coin = 1 rion

  5. I think rion is like a base currency in this world
    Umm… How should I put this… For example like 1 copper = 10 rion,1 silver = 10 copper,and that mean 1 silver = 100 rion

    And as expected with the party who bear the name of god of wine

  6. maybe its that 50 gold is already quite the sum of money and that it would be extremely hard for someone to earn by themselves.

    or maybe due to hero treatment? idk

    1. A rank adventurer only pay with gold coins so it isnt so much for a s rank 50 would be far to less.

  7. [Alcohol Resistance], huh… sounds a bit like Iwatani Naofumi. Their character differs greatly though.

  8. Thanks for the chapter.

    Not sure what fifty gold is being talked about here. Something that happened outside of the chapters’ scope perhaps? <- I believe either that it was the first bet and there has been a typo somewhere, that it's the usual interest rate or that it's the price of the broken table.

    1. I think I figured out what was going on. They were poking more fun at Kehma by saying to not be rude to demons or devils, they’d have let him off with 50 gold.

      1. Mmm… Now that I remember, how much had he asked his first two “customers” to pay him for saving them?

          1. I was thinking maybe it was that, but seems like I was wrong. He asked for two gold coins, which they understood as “two each” = 4.

    1. They just have counting up to 10,000 while western countries go by mulpiles of 1000. I’m sure there is a logical reason based in their history somewhere.

      Steps in Japanese counting:
      1 (Ichi), 10(juu), 100(hyaku), 1000(sen), 10,000(man), 100,000,000(oku), 1,000,000,000,000 (chyo)

      There might be a couple higher but you will almost never see them. It can feel really weird when you find you are counting in 10,000’s.

  9. Thanks for the chapter. I guess Kehma is the only one oblivious to Meat’s feelings, though in his case instead of being dense he’s just apathetic to everything that isn’t sleep related. Even his own hug pillow’s feelings, though I wonder when said hug pillow will make her move.

  10. haha love the origin of hero’s future team name. Bacchus is the roman god of alcohol. that’s the reason why their main mission is to drink all of the alcohol since the mission of the followers of Bacchus (Roman) and Dionysus (Greek) is to party and drink till they drop

  11. When I knew that’s the first time hero drink alchohol, I have fun thought like “Uwahhh, if you drunk and cause trouble to inn, your dept will increase you know.”

    But there’s not anything happen, I’m a bit dissapoint…

  12. Wow, Ziru’s on fire !
    Don’t burn yourself out, did you find a phoenix egg or do we need to get a fire extinguisher ^.^ ?

    And yeah, thanks thanks thanks

  13. Ziru should also have some delicious alcohol (JD?) and go to sleep~

    Thank you for chappy. I doubt Hero-san will break the riddle.

  14. So many chapters to read, thanks a lot (and that hero is as dumb as the usual “summoned as hero” MC, that’s funny)

  15. You know that in Japanese, there’s no L. So they use R to replace it.
    So リオン is maybe read as -lion, like in million or billion. They’re drunk, aren’t they?

  16. thanks for the chapter 🙂

    haha the hero seems actually a good guy. kehma scammed and dry him for his worth. i wonder if theres demon king how will he fight with kehma? xD

  17. I’m really starting to like the Hero. He’s a little childish, short-sighted and (perhaps deservedly) unfortunate, but pretty chill overall. Looks like he’s just having a good time in this world, though he also accepted the things he had to give up (morally) because of it.

    Now I’m really curious about the God/Goddess who’s getting brilliantly scammed by Haku, though.

  18. Corrections:

    “sounded familiar, and it that was probably because”

    “sounded familiar, and that it was probably because”

    The small errors that the human mind autocorrects..
