Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 301
Bear-san Arrives in Dezerto City.
[But still, you’re wearing the same outfit as usual. Isn’t it too hot to dress like that?] Toya
Toya who’s looking at my costume asks.
After all, everyone thinks it’s a fluffy costume in a hot desert.
[It does look hot.] Senia
Senia-san came and grabbed my costume.
[But it’s soft.] Senia
<Punipuni.> (squishy sfx.)
Don’t say anything that others might misunderstood.
I don’t know how many times it is already, but I gave the same explanation every time.
[It’s okay because it’s made of special materials.] Yuna
[Special materials or not it’s still such weird clothes, the Young Lady must be crazy.] Toya
I do not fancy dressing like a bear, you know…
That’s just what God made me do.
What changes me is God and not myself.
[Oh, by the way, did you met Jade and Mel at the school festival?] Senia
[Yeah, I was surprised at that time.] Yuna
We’ve met when they were doing the dismantling presentation at the school festival.
[I was surprised as well. Moreover, I was astonished because of the little girl who was with Yuna-chan as she splendidly dismantled the wolf. But Yuna-chan can’t do dismantling though.] Mel
[That child’s father works at the adventurer’s guild and she’s being trained by him. Also I’m a rookie adventurer, so it can’t be helped if I can’t do dismantling.] Yuna
I emphasize that I’m a rookie.
[A rookie huh.] Mel
[No rookie can easily beat Black Viper or Goblin King.] Senia
Mel-san and Senia-san said while being amazed.
[Rather than that, to take down the golem that Barbord’s group couldn’t defeat alone.] Toya (TN: The Idiot Rangers during the mithril golem event.)
Was there such a thing?
Hmm.. It wasn’t that a long time ago, but somehow feels nostalgic.
After that, golems no longer appear in the mine.
[But aren’t we really glad they’ve been beaten?] Mel
Though, after returning to the royal capital, the residents showed their gratitude and it became a festival.
Looks like Babord (Idiot Red Ranger), told the residents that they struggled on the fight, as he described it.
However, the fact that he fought was not a lie, so Jade-san didn’t stop it.
[I don’t mind it.] Yuna
I don’t like standing out, so it helps.
[But I’m told by the adventurer’s guild that Yuna-chan was the one who defeated it.] Mel
[So I heard.] Yuna
Since then, I hear stories from Sanya-san.
[Still, I thought it was Yuna-chan who taught the little girl how to dismantle, but it was a different person.] Mel
[I can’t do it, so whenever I defeat monsters, I’ll just drop it to the guild or give it to Fina.] Yuna
[If you don’t do it yourself, you won’t learn it even if takes you forever.] Mel
I know that.
But its just impossible.
[Even so, you’re letting Toya do it.] Yuna
[Yes, to make him learn.] Senia
[No, I can dismantle anything, everyone just want to play hooky.] Toya
They both laugh at Toya’s words.
Then Jade-san, who had been talking to the merchants, came and called out to Mel-san.
[Well it’s still okay, but don’t forget to change the magic stone.] Jade
[Oh, I forgot.] Mel
[Me too.] Senia
[I already changed it.] Toya
What kind of change is it?
Mel-san and Senia-san are wearing hooded coats that hides their bodies.
They suddenly starts taking it off. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
[Ooh, Hot.] Senia
[Let’s quickly change it.] Mel
When they take out a blue water magic stone, they use it to replace a magic stone attached to the inside of the hood.
And immediately wear the hooded coat again. ( ｰ̀εｰ́ )
Changing of magic stones?
[Oh, its cool.] Senia
[… What was that you were doing?] Yuna
[We’re replacing the magic stones. If you don’t change it soon, the effect will be lost.] Mel
I’m sorry, I know you were changing the magic stones just by watching.
But I don’t know the reason why.
[Maybe you didn’t know Yuna-chan?] Mel
Yes, I do not know.
I don’t know what they’re saying.
So, I nod obediently.
[This coat is heat-resistant and cools down using water magic stones.] Mel
Mel opens the front of her coat and shows the inside.
You can see a blue line extending inside the coat.
What is this blue line for?
It seems to be connected to the water magic stone.
According to Mel, the coat is heat-resistant.
By attaching the water magic stone and knitting the magic thread, the coldness of the water is transmitted to the magic thread and it seems able to lower the body temperature.
The blue line I saw earlier appears to be a magic thread.
Is it like a magic line connecting magic stones and magic threads?
In other words, does this coat became like a heat-resistant armor in the game?
Dealing with non-scientific methods, this truly is a different world.
But what happens if you use ice magic stones?
Is it more cold?
[If you do that, your body will freeze.] Mel
[And if it’s used in a place like this desert, it will quickly wear out.] Senia
So the ice magic stone is useless?
Is it like leaving the refrigerator door open?
But I heard some good things.
I want to attach it to the [Bear-san Work Uniforms] worn by the children at the store.
Recently, when I went to the store, I saw the children working while drenched in sweat. You can take it off if it’s hot, you know…
That said, the kids really like the bear uniform and doesn’t want to take it off.
That’s why, I was thinking about making a cooler atmosphere using ice and wind magic stones in the shop, but instead if I sew magical thread into the bear uniforms and attach water magic stones, it might be an even better solution.
If they collapse because of heat stroke, that would be very terrible, so then after I return to Crimonia, I’ll have a talk to Tirumina-san and Mylene-san.
[So generally, it’s an absolute necessity when traveling in the desert, I see,] Yuna
Mel-san is looking at me.
I’m a Bear, you got a problem with that?
But when I met Blitz’s group, why didn’t they tell me even though they knew about it?
Or they didn’t told me because it is common sense when traversing the desert?
Well, when we talked about the Bear Costume, I told them that it doesn’t feel hot, so that might be the reason why they didn’t tell me.
[Then I’ll be going now.] Yuna
[Yuna-chan, are you really going?] Mel
[I am in a hurry.] Yuna
Looking at the town in front of me, there doesn’t seem to be an emergency yet, but the King has told me to get there as quick as possible.
Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear are fast, so I was able to save a lot of time than usual, but the quicker the better.
If it’s too late, I’ll be in trouble.
I’m riding on Hugging Bear.
[Yuna-chan, do you have time after you deliver the package?] Mel
[I’m going to visit the city for a while, so yeah I have.] Yuna
Besides, I should still be fine for the trip to the sea.
Should I check with Fina once I got in the city? In any case, its difficult to set up a Bear Gate and go back for a moment.
[Hey.. Let’s have a meal together sometime.] Mel
[That’s right, we will treat you as a thanks.] Senia
I promised to Jade-san’s group that we will have a meal the next time.
For now, I don’t know what kind of foods are there, but it’s safe to know that the worm isn’t in the menu.
But there are some foods that I didn’t know in this world, so I have to be careful when eating them.
[When that time comes, please give me something delicious.] Yuna
I separated from Jade-san’s group and made Hugging Bear run.
I traverse the desert without getting lost, because there are pillars that serve as landmarks.
Occasionally I passed by some merchants and adventurers along the way.
Well, if they are coming from the opposite direction, I’ll just have to wait for them to pass, so it’s easier than overtaking.
Once again, I found some merchants and adventurers, so I hid behind the dunes and wait for them to move.
Then, I stayed in my Bear House overnight and then switch Bears.
I saw the city the next day.
The city that can be seen from the top of the dunes is surrounded by walls, with an oasis-like lake in the center and some trees.
Though, judging by the size of the oasis, was there a shortage of water?
It may look like a large lake, but it might be shallow.
Is it because the magic stone that the King mentioned was broken?
And I can see something that looks bothering from the top of the dunes.
[Is that a pyramid?] Yuna
I can see something that looks like a pyramid in a distance from the city.
I’m not confidently sure because of the distance, but I think that triangular thing is a pyramid.
I never thought I would see the pyramid in another world.
Whether the desert or the pyramid, I’ve confined myself in the original world, but I’ve never seen the pyramids in Egypt.
After I give the Kraken magic stones, shall we go to see the pyramid?
But can I get inside the pyramid?
Is there a mummy?
Riding on Swaying Bear, I rushed towards the city of Dezerto.
Then, I’ll think about how to get into the city.
They will definitely be surprised if I go there riding Swaying Bear.
But even if I walk, I can’t answer when they ask me how I got here.
In that case, even if they are surprised, it’ll be easier to explain that I’m riding on a Bear, so I will head to the city while riding Swaying Bear.
And as I arrive at the entrance to the city, as expected the gatekeepers were surprised to see me riding on Swaying bear.
[A Bear!?] Guard1
[Y~ Young Lass… Is that a bear?] Guard2
The gatekeepers were taken aback.
Yep… This is the normal reaction when seeing a bear for the first time.
I feel a little relieved.
The reactions of Mel-san and Senia-san were definitely strange.
[It’s my bear. If you don’t do anything harmful to us you’ll be fine.] Yuna
[Because it’s a summoned beast, I can make it disappear.] Yuna
I got off from Swaying Bear return him to the Bear Puppets to convince the guards.
[I’ve never seen a summoned beast before.] Guard1
[I’ve seen it, but it’s my first to see it as a bear.] Guard2
They’re bewildered, but I want to quickly get into the city, so I tried getting into the city.
[So.. Can I come in?] Yuna
[Oh, no problem.. But don’t let the bears walk in the city, because the residents may get frightened.] Guard2
I understand that much.
First of all, is it necessary to secure an inn, I wonder?
Should I go to the lord Balima-san after that?
Just like in the previous town, it would be difficult to secure an inn.
[By the way where is the inn located?] Yuna
I asked the gatekeeper who were still amazed.
[Oh, an inn? Of course, there are a few in here, but it’s easy to see, you’ll find a big inn along this street and you’ll notice it immediately after a bit of walking.] Gurad1
Then, I also asked the location of the lord’s house and the adventurer’s guild.
He says that the lord’s house is near the central lake and that house is big enough to spot from a distance.
The adventurer’s guild seems to be on the same street as the inn.
I didn’t need to ask anything else.
[I don’t know what came over to this city, but now that this city is facing a big problem, it’s better to leave early.] Guard1
Are you saying that the magic stone is broken?
It’s a problem after all huh..
[Yeah, I know.] Yuna
[Oh, I see then… Thats fine and all, but Young Lass, can I ask one thing?] Guard2
[What’s with that outfit?] Guard2
[I’m a Bear.] Yuna
I don’t have any other answer.
So after answering, I went into the city.
And that’s how we arrive.
And in the desert there’s a pyramid.
I want to see it once.
And the shop uniform, I wrote it in the activity report, but in the book version it is Kuma-san uniform. (I did not use wolf fur)
The web version will also be Kuma-san uniform in the future, so thank you.
In volume 4, 029-san drew a cute Kuma-san uniform illustration.
