Is the Strongest in Another World a Hero? A Demon Lord? No! it’s a Fairy ~desu! - Chapter 01
Chapter 1 Fairy Reincarnation, Beginning with a Bang
How long has it been since then? Since I was left in this building, inside a barrel drum. I no longer had a clear grasp of time. My mother, the debts you left behind, I’ve paid them all… even some of my organs have been pulled out. Sealed in concrete inside a drum can without a cover is where I’ve wound up because of that.
「Ahh… so hungry… so sleepy…」
Perhaps I’ll die the moment I sleep, I cannot fulfill a human’s three biggest needs. If I sleep and die, I think it will be easier as I won’t suffer as much.
And so I decided to slowly close my eyes…….
The smell of refreshing wind hits my nose. Awaking to the glare of bright lights, my consciousness slowly surfaces.
「Nyu–…did I… fall a…. ahhhhh..」[TL: just woke up yawning while talking]
I have always had a form of insomnia but this time I slept like a log. Somehow I felt great. Moreover, I don’t feel hungry anymore, it feels kind of out of place being so refreshed compared to before.
However, when I looked around I saw the neighborhood had changed into a wonderful meadow, which seemed to be welcoming me.
Why a grassland? No matter where I look there is only the bright gentle sun and trees that surround this area. The air is so fresh and delicious that it feels like you can eat it with rice.
There is no place in Japan like this… so it should be somewhere else.
For the time being I wanted to confirm my appearance. Glancing at my body I noticed a bundle of paper in my left hand. I guess I should read it…
「Hmm now let’s see what this is? [Because you were drowned in the sea while asleep, you have died. As a god I have reincarnated you in this world, I recommend that you live freely to your heart’s content. Flip the paper over for some extra information. PS: You did not wake up no matter how many times I tried, so just consider this as an apology. Sorry.] … the way the god felt sorry feels like a child’s prank that got out of hand and then they were forced to be responsible for it.」
So it’s like that other-world reincarnation stuff, right? But I haven’t turned into a baby… as I have verified with my body’s eyes, this isn’t my body. Nor is it the body of a human, it has something that only insects or birds should have, wings. They’re still attached to a humanoid body though. As for the face… I can’t see it so I can’t check it.
「Wings… right… not to mention…」
This body seems kind of small now that I look around. It feels like I’m a dwarf. When standing in the meadows, the grass around is almost as tall as my head. It’s quite amazing.
I somehow know of a creature that fits this description.
「Have I… been reincarnated as a fairy?」
For now though I read what’s on the paper, the first thing listed is information about this world, then various things about my current condition.
The name of this world is “Avalon”. A world of swords and magic where creatures like angels, demons, gods, and even evil spirits seem to exist. Heroes and Demon Lords occasionally show up as well. Status tables are real, as if this place is an RPG, but if you die then it’s a permanent game over.
And it seems that I have been turned into a “Fairy”. Why not a human? Maybe there are reasons behind it?
Maybe “It may not be a bad thing to reincarnate as something aside from a human?” A possibility is that there are more incarnations of myself in other worlds as well. Perhaps they were born as humans, but a human would bring serious harm to this world. (?)
If you bring trouble to the local people it might be so. At the very least I was not turned into an ugly guy with gender problems, nor did I become someone that would play a really important role. That was a positive.
Was there no real reason for it…Nn?
「Eh?… There was no real reason why I’m reincarnated?」
As I read further, it seemed like the direction where souls move is different in each world. Depending on the world, there are times when the soul will stay in that world forever without moving around. It’s the same for this world, if souls are not circulated around in worlds like these the world will collapse. Gods seem to be doing their work. This is great!
「Well… in my case it’s great, but…」
My parents… were the worst, not to mention they just kept taking more debts. Well, if God said I can start again with a new life then maybe it’s not all bad. There were so many times when I was running away that I indulged myself in delusions of fantasy like this. Thinking about it now I feel pumped. Excitement that I have never felt before is now overflowing in my body.
Next, I check my status as it was written on the paper.
Fairy(0)(Nameless) Lv. 1
Unique Race: Dimensional Fairy
[Inherent Skills] Fairy Magic, Fairy Eyes, Space Manipulation, Manifest Destiny
[TL: It’s not over 9000!!!]
My status came out like a sheet of paper in front of my eyes, but it didn’t seem normal. I was expecting the status of an ordinary fairy but two things stuck out. my species and INT stat were definitely abnormal. Even after rechecking the paper there wasn’t any mention of having such ridiculous bonuses given to me, so I’m just thinking that it may be some RNG at work. [TL: The RNGesus is Real!!!]
The INT isn’t normal, but why? Verifying it on the paper it seems that it is dependent on the knowledge I possess. It’s probably because of my education that it is so high.
I also verified some other information since I seem to possess a lot of unique skills. And so I checked them one by one.
Fairy Magic: Mana is used as a medium. This magic is dependent on the caster’s imagination, so casting does not require chants. Instead, Mana is consumed according to the effects produced, a clear mental image is required to use this skill.
Fairy skills are inherent skills of the fairy species and are placed in the inherent skill section. All skills in the inherent skills section will be treated as an inherent skill. In the case of fairies that are not constricted by attributes, any attribute attack from inherent skills will also be treated as a free attribute. It’s quite an explanation. But imagination? I guess that means I can use it naturally, but I still need to practice to do so. My current status is probably really fragile, based on how it feels like if I’m hit by a stone I’ll die.
Well at least it doesn’t consume Magic Power, it’s all you can cast for practice. [TL: MP and mana seems different probably MP is users Magic (from the person) and Mana is atmospheric Magic]
Fairy Eyes: Eyes that can see the truth. Among the fairy race, it is rarely inherited. Among other creatures, an eye skill on similar strength will rarely be developed and will likely be an inferior version. Disclosure of opponents Status is possible and it also prevents the targets from telling lies.
It’s like the “Appraisal Skill” of main characters I guess. It seems luck is with me since it’s even rare among the fairy species. Not to mention it can even pass through a person that is stronger than myself. (Where does it say that?) I also won’t have to worry about someone lying to me. Though I’m not sure I’ll meet someone so soon.
The next skills seem to be related to my race.
Spatial Manipulation: Magic that is considered to be the hardest to learn and handle. Enables expansion of space, rupturing dimensions, inventory, short/long-range teleportation, and various composite magics. Normally it is recognized as a skill but it is an Inherent Skill of the Dimensional Fairy Race.
This one seems rather dangerous, it seems like it should be a skill that consumes a great amount of Magical power, but since I’m a Dimensional Fairy, it has been added as an inherent skill and the skill is usable without the need for Magic Power. All of the low stats (aside from INT) have been overturned by this skill.
Manifest Destiny: Status Correction and increase will be given depending on the creature’s natural reproduction ability and manifestation.
Okay now wait. Isn’t this skill the most dangerous of them all? If it is as I imagine, I am currently a dimension fairy so If I refer to myself and my race towards reproduction. How will I even reproduce? And examining myself with my fairy eyes is strange. (ED: Unsure about this paragraph)
Dimensional Fairy: Unique species in this world. Unlike other creatures in nature, It is a creature that is singular and unique only reproducing by reincarnating oneself.
[TL: reincarnating oneself when dying is pretty much immortal already. So you get what the Manifest Skill does now?? If my guess is correct, it will have the highest stat growth to ever exist in this world because the growth bonus depends on the reproduction rate, the higher the rate the lower the growth and because it’s a unique creature get it?] (ED: low reproduction means a higher correction and growth rate)
… Ok I’ll just not think about it…
I have now understood just how much of a monster I have turned into. I am afraid of how my growth will turn out. It’s nice to know that the growth rate of races varies but…
Never mind, let’s move onto the next problem.
I need to know where I am currently. If it is a place with demons or predators around I would pretty much be easy food for them. I’m still not used to this body and how it moves which lowers my chances of survival even more. Not to mention being in a battle just after being reborn. For now, I concentrate on my wings and try flying to get out of this place.
「Ou…oh…ohhhh… flying… I’m Flying!!」
As my body begins to float slowly I begin trying to move around, up-down, side to side, backwards, and after 10 minutes grasp how to control it like an extra limb.
It seems that this is also a characteristic of this race, so it’s not reflected as a skill. However, being able to fly gets me excited for those fights I’ve seen in manga. I can’t fly that fast for now though.
「Alright!… travel !… I want to travel, it’s a fantasy world after all, I want to interact with locals, feel the culture, fight monsters, and see big castles too! I have to think of ways to survive before that though.」
I’m somewhat calm now but earlier I was kind of scared. I have been thinking that something like a “demon” might come out and I trembled for a bit… No way right?
「For now, though I must search for a safe place to stay…are? Are?」
When I was thinking out loud I suddenly stopped and turned around, hearing someone call me from behind.
The moment I turned around, there was a “Fairy” that looked like me floating smoothly in the air. She has long sky blue hair, indigo eyes, and is wearing a long one-piece dress. I immediately used “Fairy Eyes” and looked at the status of the fairy.
Race: Water Fairy
[Inherent Skill] Fairy Magic(Water), Manifest Destiny
It is a fairy just like it appears. The first encounter is a fairy similar in race to myself. I mean…
(This is good… this is good! To have the first encounter be with another fairy! I can now escape the fate of becoming demon food. Let’s get along now…)
Looking closer, the girl is beautiful.
As I said that to the girl she also asked the same question. I decided to approach her to say hello but… I forgot I currently don’t have a name.
「Nice to meet you, I… have just been born… and don’t know anything…」
「Ohh… I’m Arena! Would you like to come with me?」
Saying that Arena came close and pulled my hand while making an innocent smile. I won’t regret it even if I’m turned into monster food.
[TL: OK it’s just the start and our MC here is already showing her tendencies]
「Arena?… where are we going?」
「To my home!!」
Oooh… a fairy’s home, I wonder what it’s like? I would like to know how fairies live. I may also get to know other fairies and know more about the world. Let’s follow her.
For a while now we have been flying while holding hands.
Looking at the forest, it’s a wall of trees in front of us. If I estimate it correctly, the trees would probably reach a hundred meters in height. The forest seems a bit dark since light can’t seem to enter it, but Arena doesn’t hesitate and goes straight in while pulling me along. This girl sure has guts.
Suddenly Arena stopped flying for a little while. She held her head and smelled the floral scent around for a moment. I should also do it too… I guess.
「But there’s nothing there…」
The view is still full of dense trees like always. But Arena is confident that we have arrived at our destination.
「Perhaps… is it a barrier that hides things?」
Anou… Even if you tilt your head like that I won’t get it you know? But then Arena suddenly hugged me, I don’t know what it means or she’s just being cheerful but…
「Here?…Ou..There is something, what is this… scary!」
I moved my hands to the place Arena pointed at. My arms then began to sink into it. It was kind of scary. The barrier began to ripple and I slowly sunk in, but I didn’t let go of her hand and we went in together.
Like this… I’ll believe in Arena.
「Ready? Let’s Go!」
And then… this place that I cannot even imagine.
A magnificent sight was displayed in front of me.
… yup… that smile is cute.
