Chapter 200: Being Big is Good

 


Evening, we’d moved from the lake to the kitchen to have a slightly early dinner.

The reason we wanted to eat early was to have the newly caught prey be as fresh as possible. More than that…

「This thing really is huge.」
「For sure.」

The prey was too big.

The grilling plate was mostly an octopus plate now.

「Well we can use the golems to cut it up and get rid of it.」
「Yeah we can leave the hard labor to them!」

The golems were using their power to cut the octopus up into small edible pieces. The food preparation was done mostly by them.

The put a little salt on and covered them with wheat flower. It was turned into a takoyaki kind of thing….but it was more like octopus skewers.

「Diachi-san this is really delicious~!」
「n, it tastes really, good.」

Well, it looks like it was popular with the Dragon Kings.

Athena was also chewing on it. It looked like it was popular with humans as well. There shouldn’t be an issue with the taste.

「Master~ I made another~ It’s octopus marinade.」
「Oh, thank you Sakura」

Sakura and I continued to make different types of octopus dishes as we ate. However, it was delicious even if we ate it raw like sushi.

As we bit into it there was a delicious type of umami that emerged.

「Since it’s so big, I thought there might be a lack of flavor…..but this is better than I imagined.」

I murmured…

「J-just so you know, Sanzu Octopus is a high class ingredient. The flavor is guaranteed delicious.」

Dianeia said as she approached.

「Is that so? …..actually you haven’t been eating very much…are you ok?」

She’d been cooking all the time and not really eating. I was wondering why when Dianeia scratched her cheek bashfully.

「So you noticed? I’m a bit embarrassed……but I have a bit of trauma. No matter if it’s a high class ingredient my hands can’t help but stop when I try to eat.」
「Oioi, are you really okay?」
「Umu, if I take some time I think I’ll be able to eat…….however this Sanzu Octopus should originally be around 30 centimeters…I was really surprised.」

Really?? The originally 30 centimeter octopus turned into a (TN: the author seems confused as to how big the octopus is) 5 meter giant.

「Katarakta leaving had that much of an effect?」
「Hmmm, I don’t know. I wouldn’t know much about this kind of thing.」

Manaril walked over from a pan covered in octopus mushiyaki.

「If it’s about this lake I can answer.」
「So you heard?」
「Well yes. I have good ears after all. Anyways, the reason this octopus grew so huge is the large amount of magic power flowing into this lake. That’s why Katarakta leaving had this kind of effect.」
「Are there any other factors?」

Manaril nodded and looked at the lake.

「This lake is connected to an underground water vein…….of course Daichi-san’s water vein is flowing a little bit to here as well.」
「Ah….is that so? Then that’s why the water is filled with magic power.」
「It’s half a guess though. I think that this delicious huge creature is amazing you know?」

She said and bit into the steamed octopus.

With how easily she bit through it, it must be quite tender.

「n~ delicious.」
「Certainly I think that such a delicious thing getting bigger is great.」
「Yes, on that we can agree………ok, we have a lot so I’ll eat too!」

Our talk just now seemed to have reduced her traumatic feelings towards the octopus.

Dianeia grabbed several octopus dishes from the grill iron.

We’d caught various things and ended up in some trouble, but everything turned out alright.

And so our dinnertime passed in the twinkle of an eye.

  1. Meatbun Delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    Didn’t they catch a bunch of fiah as lunch a few chapters ago? Now they’re eating early dinner?

  2. Thank you for your work!

  3. i suggest removing Arafoo Kenja no Isekai Seikatsu Nikki from the new story poll, silverlining translations will be making that their new main project after they finish skeleton knight, of which they only have 14-15 chapters left of.

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

  5. Thanks for the new chapter!

  6. Thanks for the chapter

  7. “ok, we’ve a lot so I’ll eat too!” should be we have a lot. Have doesn’t shorten, only have got can be shortened into *’ve got.

  8. About the new story poll, some of those series already have active translations (a new chapter only two days ago for Arafoo), so you might want to re-verify which of them are active.

  9. Thanks for the chapter!

  10. [The] put a little salt on and covered them with wheat flower. It was turned into a takoyaki kind of thing….but it was more like octopus skewers.
    – should be [They]

    「[Diachi-san] this is really delicious~!」
    – [Diachi-san] – [Daichi-san]

  11. I want some octopi cuisine.
    Believe me it taste good! Can’t forget that delicious taste and quirk my stomach growling about it

    Thanks for the chapter!

  12. I just read abt someone’s dinner

  13. welp. I’m buying sushi tomorrow

  14. A lot of those from the poll already been grasped and some active while some take long to update.
    Arafoo is indeed taken from Silver and has long paragraphs XD. But in there kinda slow but understand since the the chapter is long.
    It would be better if Elf Tensei Kara no Cheat Kenkoku-ki and Unparalleled Path ~ Reincarnated as the AI for a Space Battleship ~ to be the top.
    Get to see an Elf MC than a human or other non-humans. And in the in the Unparalleled Path, journey of a reincarnated person as an AI of a space battleship. How cool is that!?

  15. Man!! I want some takoyaki & tako sashimi, yum!!!
    Thanks for the treat.

  16. I heard that the “Elf Tensei Kara no Cheat Kenkoku-ki” has large drop in quality after vol1 and it even has another alt-universe story to it that one should read :/

    Well, i guess people just want more of the shounen-harem-ecchi-comedy fests….like we dint have those already.

    Seems like a RIP for the AI or Duke ones 🙁 The AI one seemed really cool & interesting.

    • It’s not like there’s no chance. It’ll depend on what happens with House Magic. Either I stop it or I go until I catch up with the Author in 40 chapters or so
