Commemoration of Volume 4 Release, New Writing, Draft, Newcomer Adventurer Shin’s Viewpoint.
Volume 4 release commemoration. Is written for this purpose, but it’s still a draft of the newly written volume.
I wrote for about 80%, and this made me realize that I wasn’t writing it down from the different viewpoints of Volume 1 and Volume 2. But I wrote it so much, so I decided to do it anyway.
This story is based on the new adventurer’s perspective from the first and second volumes of the book version, so please be aware that there may be an insufficient explanation for web readers.
The four of us came from a nearby village, we went to the city of Crimonia to become adventurers.
Me and my three other friends have been together since we were small.
When I turned 15 years old, I got my parents’ permission and became an adventurer.
Latte is good at using a bow because his father is a hunter.
Brute is the most powerful of us, using an axe as a weapon.
And the only girl in the group, Horun.
I can use magic, but I didn’t really want to bring her with us.
However, Horun came along without even listening to us. Horun’s parents tried to stop her, but instead, she bowed and asked us to let her join.
The three of us vowed to protect the only girl Horun no matter what.
[That’s all for the explanation. You’re all doing really great. Just hang in there.] Helen
We receive an explanation from the Adventurer’s Guild and receive a guild card.
Now we are adventurers. The joy comes rushing in. Everyone is happily looking at their guild card.
[Oh, yeah. A word of warning. There’s an adventurer girl in the city with a slightly different outfit.] Helen
[A little unusual clothes?] Shin
[…A very unusual outfit.] Helen
Oh, she retorted.
[What is so unusual about the outfit?] Horun
Horun asked instead of me.
[She looks like a bear.] Helen
[[[[………… Ha~a.]]]] Rookies
We all have the same expression. Did she say bear just now?
[The girl looks like a bear. If you meet her in the city or in the guild, please do not laugh or be foolish. If you get into trouble with her, the guild cannot protect you.] Helen
[Well, is the person dressed as a bear dangerous?] Horun
[On the first day she came to the guild, she injured more than 10 people, including veteran adventurers, and tried to get them to quit the Adventurer’s Guild.] Helen
[That’s got to be a lie.] Shin
[I’m not lying. It is forbidden in this Adventurer’s Guild to mention her appearance as a bear. So be careful.] Helen
It was unbelievable, but we decided to follow obediently.
[If you don’t make fun of her, you’ll be fine, so don’t worry.] Helen
We thank Helen-san for explaining, and left the guild.
We’ve completed the guild registration today and then accept a request tomorrow.
[What do you think about the story?] Latte
[About a bear?] Brute
[Yeah… No idea. What does that bear look like?] Shin
[I wonder if she’s wearing bear fur?] Horun
She’s been beating up adventurers, so her muscles might be amazing.
So, maybe it’s just like Horun said, maybe she is wearing bear fur.
Just by imagining it and it’s making me not want to get close.
I’m not that stupid, but…
I just don’t want to get involved with such a woman, so no thanks.
And so, we got money with just a simple request.
My parents gave me enough money to live for a month, but I have to be able to make money before this money runs out. That is what I promised my parents, for becoming an adventurer. If I can’t make money, I promised to return to the village.
But we will double this money and return it to our parents. Right now, we’re renting a small house and the four of us were living together. Renting for one month is cheaper.
We have to be able to rent this house stably.
After finishing today’s chores, we return home. The adventurer’s job is not only to defeat the monsters. A little chore also comes around to the guild.
Helen-san says that it is for beginners. So I was told that I should gradually raise my level of work.
I thought that monsters would be subjugated, but first I decided to do it after stabilizing my life.
And so today, for the first time, we went to wolf subjugation and we were able to cooperate and defeat them.
[Latte, I did it.] Horun
She stabbed a wolf that escaped Latte’s bow.
[Thanks to everyone injuring it and the slow escape of the wolf.] Latte
[That’s right. Everyone defeated it. ] Shin
We are glad to subjugate the monsters for the first time as adventurers.
Even when I was in the village, I was taken by my parents, but my joy is different.
It is my first wolf subjugation as an adventurer.
When we report about the wolf subjugation, we were praised by Helen-san. The Adventurer’s job is to protect ordinary people from monsters and evil animals.
I finally took a step as an adventurer.
[Please keep doing a good job. But don’t push yourselves too much.] Helen
Praises from the senior adventurers made us happy.
[If the newbie adventurers are like this, there are quite cute.] Adventurer A
[Newcomers must have a freshness.] Adventurer B
They stroke my head strongly. It kinda hurts, but I gave up and just accept it.
[That bear wasn’t as cute as it looks.] Adventurer C
[Oh, that bear is…] Adventurer D
It’s the bear story.
I heard about it occasionally, but it looks like a crazy bear.
[Is that the adventurer who dressed like a bear?] Shin
[A ferocious bear.] Adventurer A
[That one is very dangerous.] Adventurer B
One after another, everyone raises voices that make the bear appears dangerous.
[She defeated a group of goblins alone, including a Goblin King, even two Tiger Wolves.] Adventurer C
[She defeated the Goblin King with Rurina-chan, right?] Adventurer D
[No, Rurina-san said she was just watching and not doing anything.] Adventurer E
I also asked Helen-san, but she confirmed the Tiger Wolf and 100 goblins subjugation. She also said that a ridiculous monster like the Black Viper was subjugated as well.
What a ferocious bear!
[So, you guys shouldn’t ridicule that bear, if you value your lives.] Adventurer A
I got some advice, but I have never met her.
I wonder if there really is such a ferocious bear.
After a while, we decided to receive a village request, a pack of wolves had appeared.
I discussed with everyone that we should be able to kill them one by one.
When I received the request, I realized that Horun was not there.
[Where did she go?] Shin
When I was searching for Horun, I saw a figure of someone sitting on their butt on the floor, in a slightly distant place.
[Horun! Are you okay!?] Shin
She stood up when I ran to her.
[Yeah, I’m fine I just bumped into a bear.] Horun
[A Bear?] Shin
I cried out unintentionally because there was a bear when I looked at where Horun was pointing at.
There is a girl dressed as a bear.
What’s with that appearance?
Maybe this is the same bear that Helen-san and the senior adventurers talking about?
Horun and the bear apologize to each other. And the girl dressed as a bear seems to have noticed my gaze.
[What’s wrong?] Yuna
[Are you the rumored bear?] Shin
When I asked her, she replied, [I think so.]
[Dammit, you guys just made fun of us, didn’t you!] Shin
A girl like this?
Dressed as a bear, defeated a Black Viper and Tiger Wolves?
Did everyone deceive us?
The bear seems angry with my words.
It’s not scary, but this bear was angry.
But Horun apologized to the bear.
[Ah, I’m very sorry. They said, <there is a scary adventurer dressed as a bear in this city, so don’t get close to it no matter what>. I’m just surprised.」 Horun
[And what I’m surprised at, is when they said that this bear alone, killed Tiger Wolves, Goblin King, and Black Viper.] Shin
Besides, they even said that she’s scary, ferocious, and dangerous.
What is ferocious about this cute bear?
Where is the scary part?
[So the rumored bear, is you huh?] Shin
Playfully, I pat the bear’s head with a <pomfpomf>.
I looked at the adventurers who tricked us, it seems that for some reason their faces were jerking.
It looks like getting into trouble is a lie.
When I put my hand on the bear, Latte and Brute came over.
[Hey! Horun, Shin, what are you doing?] Brute
[Really, you guys. I’ve been looking for both of you.] Latte
[Horun bumped onto this bear.] Shin
[Bear? The one in the rumors? ] Brute
[Oh, that’s the one we’ve heard from the reception desk…] Latte
[And what seniors told us as well…] Shin
[But I heard it was a scary bear.] Latte
[Don’t make me laugh. I thought it was a big woman because they said a woman dressed as a bear.] Brute
I pat the head of a girl dressed up like a bear with a <pomfpomf>.
At that moment, the inside of the guild got noisy, and the adventurers who were watching us ran out of the guild.
What’s up with that?
When I tried to pat the bear’s head again, Helen-san came.
[Yuna-chan! Please wait!] Helen
[Isn’t the Adventurer’s Guild neutral when it comes to a fight between adventurers?] Yuna
[It’s the responsibility of the Adventurer’s Guild to make sure Yuna-chan doesn’t get into a fight.] Helen
[Oh, what’s the matter?] Shin
[Did you guys not hear what I said the other day?] Helen
[About the bear?] Shin
[That’s right. There’s an adventurer girl dressed up as a bear, but we must not make a fool out of her or approach for any dumb reason.] Latte
[Is this that bear?] Shin
Playfully, I pat the bear’s head with a <pomfpomf>.
[Hey, stop it. Hey, if you don’t want to die, apologize immediately and go to work.] Helen
Helen grabs my hand and points outside the door.
[We’re going. Let’s go, everyone.] Shin
[Bye. Bear-san, I’m sorry.] Horun
We’re going to kill the wolves.
There is no time to get involved with bears.
We came to the village where the request was made.
We meet the village chief and listen to the story.
Two people, Branda-san and Barad-san, who are familiar with the forest, will be our guides to the forest where the wolves are located.
[We’re going over there. You guys, take over that.] Branda
Branda-san points her finger.
Branda-san and her team were the ones fighting the wolves, but they seem to be in trouble because of the large number.
So we split up and reduced the wolves.
[Don’t do the impossible.] Branda
When we separated from Branda-san, we went into the forest to subdue the wolves.
After walking for a while, we found a wolf. I hold the sword, Brute holds the axe, and Latte holds the bow.
Latte looks at me.
When I signaled, Latte set an arrow to the bow and aimed at the wolf.
The arrow hits the wolf’s flank.
Then, Me and Brute rushed in to finish it.
[All right!] Shin
I was able to defeat it safely.
I only remove the magic stone as proof of the kill.
I want the other materials as well, but we can’t move with the wolf in tow, so I’ll come back later to get it.
Looking for the next wolf, we’re walking through the woods, then we found two wolves.
I was able to defeat it with the help of Latte and Horun.
[That makes three.] Horun
[It’s going well.] Latte
While removing the magic stone and searching for the next monster, we heard a wolf howling.
[I know. Watch out for your surroundings.] Shin
Latte calls us with a small voice.
Looking at where Latte is pointing at, there are six wolves. No, there’s more coming out.
[… Shin.] Latte
[We’re retreating.] Shin
We are outmatched.
This number is impossible.
I might have been foolhardy before, but now I have something to protect.
Horun is worriedly looking at me.
We have to quietly leave this place.
At that time, there is a sound of someone stepping on a branch.
The wolves reacted to the sound and looked at us.
[Get ready to run.] Shin
We ran as fast as we can.
The wolves are chasing us.
The number is large.
As we run, the bushes in front of us moved.
There are wolves on the front!？
[You guys !?] Branda
It was Branda-san who came out of the grass.
[Why are you here?] Shin
[There are dozens of wolves.] Latte
[Are those the wolves?… You guys keep running!] Branda
Branda-san rushes out.
We started running together.
[What happened, Branda-san?] Shin
[A Tiger Wolf has appeared.] Branda
I’ve heard about it, but I’ve never seen it.
However, I understand that it is not a monster that we can defeat.
A big howl comes from behind.
Looking back, there was a wolf larger than the other wolves.
That is the Tiger Wolf, peeling ferocious fangs and running fast.
Branda-san stops, she held a bow, and released an arrow, but it did not hit.
The Tiger Wolf enters the side bush and we lost sight of it.
That’s why you can’t stop it.
[Shin! The wolf went over there.] Brute
[Horun, run!] Shin
A wolf attacks from the right.
I swung my sword to protect Horun from the wolf.
[Where is the Tiger Wolf!?] Branda
[Branda-san! Watch out!] Latte
When the Tiger Wolf appears from the side, it attacks Branda-san.
Branda-san twists her body to evade it.
[You guys go ahead!] Branda
Branda-san stops and released an arrow.
[This forest is like my garden! On the other hand, if you guys are in the opposite direction, you will be confused!] Branda
Which it does.
We are not familiar with the forest and have no power to fight a Tiger Wolf.
If it was true, Branda-san may have escaped on her own.
[Everyone, let’s go] Shin
[Just as Branda-san says, we’re not familiar with this forest, we have to get out of here first.] Shin
We left Branda-san.
The wolves chase us as we run.
We defeated several wolves along the way, but there are still so many.
Now we have to run towards the village.
At that moment, a bear appeared from the front.
[A Bear!] Shin
There are also bears in this forest!
I stopped and held my sword.
[Idiot! Look carefully!] Latte
A Black Bear and a White Bear appeared in front of me.
On top of the black bear was the girl dressed like a bear that I met at the Adventurer’s Guild.
When the girl casts magic, the ice arrow hits all of the wolves’ brains and defeats them with a single blow.
[It’s amazing,] Shin
A girl dressed as a bear killed the wolves in the vicinity by herself.
And then she left the White Bear and rode on a Black Bear.
[Are we saved?] Latte
[What was that?] Brute
There is no doubt that the girl dressed as a bear whom we met at the Adventurer’s Guild helped us.
And I could immediately understand what Helen-san and the senior adventurers were saying.
<A girl dressed as a bear, is very strong.>
[What are we going do now?] Latte
Everyone is looking at me.
Even if you tell me that, we still have no choice but to escape.
There is nothing we can do against the Tiger Wolf.
[Is that bear girl, going to be okay?] Horun
[I think she’s going to be fine because she beat a pack of wolves so easily.] Brute
[I’m going to see how it goes, you guys head back.] Shin
[… We’re going as well.] Latte
[It’s dangerous. You take Horun back to the village.] Shin
As we argue, the white bear approaches and shakes his head.
[Why is it moving here?] Latte
I see a girl dressed as a bear heading towards here.
[You want us to go over there?] Shin
We went altogether.
There was a dead Tiger Wolf on the ground in front of Branda-san and the bear girl.
An arrow is stuck in the eyes of the Tiger Wolf. Apparently, Branda-san seems to have defeated it.
However, Branda-san said that it was the girl who dressed like a bear.
We were surprised by Branda-san’s words and realized again that Helen-san’s words were true.
And we managed to return to the village safely.
The name of the girl dressed as a bear is Yuna.
When I talked to the villagers, she seemed to have saved this village before.
So no one laughs at her or asks about the bear’s appearance.
And Yuna-san is that Bear.
The Black and White Bears are playing with the village children.
It’s a mysterious sight.
Although bears should be dangerous creatures, they play happily with the children.
Looking at Yuna-san, she’s having a conversation with Branda-san.
Surprisingly, Yuna-san seems to have handed over the Tiger Wolf to the villagers.
If we could sell the Tiger Wolf materials, the four of us will get enough money to live leisurely for a while.
But Yuna-san gave it without hesitation.
According to the story, it was given as a gift to stop a baby from crying.
This is unbelievable.
The Tiger Wolf was dismantled by a little girl who was with Yuna-san.
This was also amazing.
A little girl, about 10 years old, stripped the fur and went to the dismantling of the meat, with such speed and precision.
What are these girls?
But what Helen-san and the adventurers were saying was not a lie.
The strength to easily defeat a pack of wolves and defeat a Tiger Wolf.
I stupidly pat such a person’s head, I’m such an idiot!
If Helen-san’s story is true, I might get lucky with just being beaten black and blue.
I courageously thank Yuna-san.
I thought of going alone, but everyone came with me.
I thank her for the help and apologize for what I did back in the Adventurer’s Guild.
Yuna-san forgave me because everyone apologized together.
Then, I told Yuna-san what I heard from the senior adventurers.
Uh, I told her everything.
Yuna-san got angry.
Maybe it failed.
To the adventurers back in the guild, I’m sorry.
Then, Yuna-san returned with the girl who was with her, but we stayed in this village for a while to defeat the remaining wolves.
For the next few days, we will work with Branda-san to subdue the remaining wolves. Branda-san’s bow was amazing and I was glad to learn a lot of things.
After we successfully completed the request, we came back to the city.
It may be because we were talking about Yuna-san to all the adventurers in the guild, that they had a terrible smile?
Then after we get a little bit of work done, we got a rank up.
We are now E-ranks.
Now, I’m no longer ashamed to call myself an adventurer.
F-ranks also prove that they cannot defeat a pack of wolves or a horde of goblins.
Now, at the very least, we will be recognized as adventurers from here on out.
The senior adventurers treated us as a celebration.
They are all kind people.
[Maybe Yuna-chan gets angry when a new adventurer gets bullied.] Helen
Helen-san told me.
The fighting inside the guild has decreased, ever since Yuna-san came. It seems that the adventurers who were nearly killed by Yuna-san, have matured and gone out of town.
Yuna-san is really amazing.
But why is she dressed like that?
Even if we ask a senior adventurer about that, no one really knows.
I was advised to refrain from asking her.
Of course, I don’t have that courage.
Then after a while, a strange rumor began to float.
Everyone says that a bear figurine appeared in front of a small mansion just outside the city center. Everyone is saying it’s Yuna-san’s shop.
I noticed that there was a flyer on the wall of the guild.
It was written, <Bear-san’s Rest Shop Opened!>
The flyer has a simple map, opening date, and the name of the dishes.
[Is it a bakery?] Latte
[Is this pizza thing, a bread?] Brute
[What is a pudding?] Horun
But wasn’t Yuna-san an adventurer?
[If you are interested, please have a look.] Helen
When I was looking at the flyer on the wall, Helen-san talked to us.
[Did she really open a store?] Shin
[Yeah, it’s so delicious, you should try it.] Helen
[Helen-san, have you eaten there before?] Horun
Horun asked, she seems to be interested.
[The other day. I was called for a tasting and I was allowed to eat there a bit earlier. But be careful not to eat too much because everything is so delicious.] Helen
[Is it really delicious?] Horun
[I recommend pudding, but isn’t it a little expensive? Pizza is best when eaten hot and fresh. Of course, all the other kinds of bread are so delicious, I’m kinda troubled about what to eat.] Helen
If it is expensive, it may not be possible for us.
Now I’m living a life of my own.
It also costs money for food, rent, and maintenance for weapons.
There are many other items to buy.
So we are saving money without wasting it.
I want good weapons and armor.
A few days have passed and today everyone is resting.
I went to see the weapon shop, but Horun is going to Yuna-san’s shop.
[I was a little worried.] Horun
[Well then, please let me know what you think.] Shin
I heard the impression from a very happy Horun.
The next story is linked to the story of Yuna and Horun in the four volumes.
※What is this! Yuna and Swaying Bear are now going to ride the train.
The details were written in the activity report, so if you are interested, I would be happy if you could check it.
