The Tanaka Family Reincarnates - Chapter 225
Cat-ching by Meowcom [Part 1]
“Look here. I will tell you this once more, okay? Over, you see, must be cut cleanly, or else it won’t work. If you crush it beyond recognition like this, we can’t use it later, can we? Utilization is the norm with monsters to begin with. It’s exactly because they are treated as resources that the Kingdom uses [hunt] as the verb for monsters. In short, if such a large amount of Over that we could secure is crushed into powder, there will be no use for it, right? It’s such a shame to just throw the monsters away as is. We must practice Reduce, Reuse, Recycle on everything, got it? Even if it can’t be eaten, it might have other uses, no? Don’t you also feel sorry for Over? So, again, what I’m saying here is that it’s too much of a waste if we can’t process it, okay…?”
The tailless whip scorpions’ operation was interrupted as soon as they crushed Over, and Emma went on with her lecture endlessly.
“Nee-sama… I think the tailless whip scorpions also have things they can and cannot do.“
“Just go easy on them on this matter, Emma.“
William and George stood up for the tailless whip scorpions who were feeling down after listening to Emma’s lecture.
“Nee-sama, I think the tailless whip scorpions have tried their best.“
“Emma, they are tailless whip scorpions, not pincher bugs, okay?“
The tailless whip scorpions, who had lined up neatly, shrunk their arms tightly as if to nod at what the brothers said.
“But Nii-sama, William? Imperial Japan has nowhere that can be used as a disposal area for this amount of Over, right? We must reserve as much of Imperial Japan’s land as possible for rice fields!“
The vast land that Over had encroached on was the countryside, where rice was produced. That was the cause of the severity of the food shortage in Imperial Japan. Even the Kingdom didn’t know the extent of the support it could give. Crops were heavily influenced by the weather, and the technology that could ensure a stable supply was hard to implement, even in their previous world.
“Then why don’t we think of other ways to use it? That’s Nee-sama’s strong point, is it not?“
William took a piece of Over that Ryuu-chan had brought, and handed it to Emma.
“But… if it’s like this, we can’t make cans… or canned cat food!!!“
” “Meowww” “
Upon hearing what Emma said, Ryuu-chan and Kan-chan cried out sadly.
“…Are we… saved…?” muttered Fukushima after seeing the crushed Over before his eyes. The disgusting insects… no, Tailless Whip Scorpion-dono(s) have defeated that Over so easily.
When a person got closer to Over at a certain distance, it would shoot out its leaves to attack. People could only approach at the expense of a sacrifice by having a group act as a decoy while the others went on the offensive. And yet, for some reason, the tailless whip scorpions were able to reach Over without getting attacked. Yet when Imperial Japan had dispatched a group of the greatest swordmasters with the greatest katanas, they couldn’t land a single scratch other than the first strokes.
Tailless Whip Scorpion-dono(s) have reduced Over to pieces single-handedly. Fukushima thought in amazement.
“Fukushima-sama… what have we just witnessed earlier?“
The samurai escorts all blinked their eyes repeatedly.
They had finally seen a ray of light in the dark. “The light of hope”.
“Are we… Is Imperial Japan… saved…?…!!!“
Although Fukushima and the samurais still couldn’t believe their eyes, they couldn’t stop their hearts from pounding with joy. But right at that moment…
Over shot out its seed. It had shot out that bomb which caused enormous damage.
It seemed like even Over, a plant-type monster, wouldn’t stay silent when it had received an attack of that scale.
At that instant, the only thing the samurais could think of was…
It has always been like this.
Our hope will turn into despair in a matter of seconds.
Over will create yet another colony before us.
When the seeds fly, our Imperial Japan will go down the path of destruc-…!!!
” ” ” “Meow♪” ” ” “
The four cats pounced on Over‘s seeds.
They squirmed on the ground while locking onto their target. Then, they leaped into the air without any run-up to catch the scattered Over‘s seeds high up in the sky.
” ” “W-WHAA-?!!!!!!” ” “
Every time the samurais thought there wouldn’t be anything more surprising than that, something even more shocking would happen. And no samurai could keep up with this continuous nonsensical development. Now that it had happened so many times, they couldn’t even feel bothered to waste their breath to question it.
