Itai no wa Iya nanode Bōgyo-Ryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu. – Chapter 8

Chapter 8: Defense Specialized and Secret Training


Clad in jet-black equipment, sitting on the edge of the fountain, Kaede was troubled.

Her level won’t go up that easy.

Right now, Kaede’s level is 18, and the top-level right now is 48 they said. Kaede had no interest in this game in the first place so she had been late to start. If it continues like this, the level gap will only open.

Well then, the reason for Kaede not having an easy way to level up was her AGI was so low, that she couldn’t go to the places where strong monsters are in a short time.




She was staring at the information bulletin board thinking if there was a skill that would be useful.

The reason why she is thinking about it seriously right now was because of the announcement the game staff about an event.

Right, after one week, an event will start. The event’s contents is point valued battle royale. Every participants will fight for the number of defeated players and death count.

Also, points will be received with dealt damage, and damage not received.

And to the top ten, limited event items will be sent.


「Limited, only called by that I want it already……!」


Kaede was the type of person that buys merchandize, even if it was useless, if there was a limited edition written on it.

That’s why, she is thinking of ways to deal with the level gap.


「Uu〜……for the mean time, let’s go!」


Kaede stopped staring at the bulletin boards, and walked towards the north.


Right, Kaede didn’t knew.


How abnormal her defense powers was.


「Tomorrow is rest day too…I’ll sleep outdoors and get a skill!」


In Kaede’s inventory, a sleeping back was in. With the money she finally earned by selling loots she was able to buy it.

Her equipments were grand, but she had no money.

And, she arrived at the north forest.

Staying here for the night, one of the prey that she targeted is Explosion Ladybug, a ladybug that self-destructs as attack.

And, another is a monster that is familiar in many games, it’s goblin.




From Kaede’s body a circular light was released, and monsters were coming. Kaede only took within those, goblins as the opponent. The number of goblins are five. Other monsters than that, she didn’t care because even if she was attacked it was no damage.

The goblin slashes at Kaede using its rusty sword. But, even if Kaede is 【AGI 0】, it’s not like she cannot use the shield that was larger than her to attacks that were done head on.

*Gacchiri* she stopped it, and blocked it away. It was plain, but she repeated that. Five Goblins. The efficiency was five times.


『Skill 【Knowledge of Large Shield I】 had been acquired』


Because that was a basic skill that was written in the information bulletin boards, Kaede also acquired it.

It reduces the damage received from the enemy by 1 when a large shield is equipped. Instead of increasing her VIT, she plans to take every damage reduction skill to increase her defence power.




With adding goblins to a total of ten and make them hit her, the efficiency was raised further.

The 【Knowledge of Large Shield I】 grew to 【Knowledge of Large Shield IV】 in only few hours, and reduces damage by 4 right now.

In addition, she also got the skill 【Body Manipulation】 and 【Attack Diversion】 Their effects were both reduction of damage received by 1.


「This much is good huh」


And using 【Shield Attack】 she crushed the goblin that was doing it’s best right now.


『Skill 【Abominable (Gokuaku Hidō】 had been acquired』


At this time, Kaede gained a skill that she wasn’t expecting.

Kaede’s play style was completely different to other players, she endured and endured with long periods of time, so she gains skills that are not easily obtained by other players.


【Abominable (Gokuaku Hidō】

Every time an attack was received from an opponent intentionally, 【VIT +1】

But skill effects will only be available one day starting from the activation of the skill.

Limit is 【VIT +25】


Skill Requirement

Intentionally receive attacks from opponent that can be defeated continuously and exceed an amount of time.

And, not receive death penalty until skill requirement is met.


「What a happy miscalculation!」

She endured that she almost danced, and went deeper to the forest.

Right, in the first time since Kaede started this game.


She is going to find for unconfirmed skills.


The Explosion Ladybug, as its name says, is a ladybug that explodes, and its size is around double of a normal ladybug. Experience gained is very bad, takes a lot time to encounter since it’s deep in the forest, and it is hard to dodge it since its body is small and the damage is also huge. That’s why, Kaede could monopolize the hunting grounds that are unused by herself.

When Kaede reached their spawning place, she used 【Provoke】 to call the ladybugs. Because they are not hunted at all, there were a huge amount of ladybugs that flew, but to that, Kaede only took out the blade of Shingetsu a little from its sheath.


「【Paralyze Shout】」


Although it was called shout, a silent, but a clear sound, *Kin* echoed.

The skill that in infused to Shingetsu is originally the Poison Dragon’s, and the names were almost the same with the dragon.

It means, its sound just needed to echo, that’s why Kaede used the sound *Kin* that comes out when sheathing it as a trigger.

The reason is, it’s very cool.

Kaede looked at the ladybugs that fell to the ground randomly very content.

And, Kaede squatted, closed her eyes.


And started eating the ladybugs one by one.


「Ah!…it’s like the candy that was cracking and popping! Its nothing when I close my eyes huh. I mean, I already eat the Poison Dragon, being intimidated with just this……」


It’s not like Kaede had not thought about anything since she’s doing this.

It was proven that Kaede’s idea was right at the time after she ate 50 ladybugs.


『Skill 【Bizarre Eater (Akujiki) 】 had been acquired』


『Skill 【Bomb Eater (BakudanKurai)】 had been acquired』


「Then…it’s okay if I stopped eating right」


Kaede checked the skills that she gained.


【Bizarre Eater (Akujiki)】

A skill that changes everything that was devoured as power.

Will devour even magic, and can change it to the user’s MP. When the magic powers overflows, will be stored inside the body as magic crystal.


Skill Requirement

Oral ingestion of a certain amount of lethal substances.


【Bomb Eater (BakudanKurai)】

Reduces explosive-type damage by 50.


Skill Requirement

Defeat Explosion Ladybug with HP Drain.


「It’s a good skill!! Ha〜 There was a good reason I did my best eating〜」


Kaede infused 【Bizarre Eater (Akujiki)】 to 『Mirror of the Dark Night (Yamiyo no Utsushi)』.

【Bizarre Eater (Akujiki)】 is a passive skill so the use limit had nothing to do with it. In addition, with eating the magic attack and the direct attack dealt with weapons, it can completely nullify it.


「And it would change to magic crystals and I can release a big magic with 『New Moon (Shingetsu)』!  Fuhehe…so cool…」


*Ba*, she drew out Shingetsu, thrust it forward and made a pose. Her image training was perfectly perfect.


「I was searching for explosion magic coming here but…Kekka Alright huh!」


After that, she only needs to raise her level until the limit.


Who knows what will become of Kaede’s first event.

    New Chap Wohoo

    Thanks for the chapter!

    Thank you for the chapter!

  4. SpiralBaka says:

    thank you for the chapter.

  5. trannon1 says:

    At this point, we should change her job class to Gourmet, no?

  6. j0s123 says:

    I bet 10 invisible dollars that there is no one able to hurt her, and she can’t damage anyone, so she and the last person will just stand there doing practically nothing until the time runs out.

  7. Shiikun says:

    Wow, such defence, much skills, wow.

    Really, She’s too OP by stats and skills, I think even top players can’t get a scratch on her. A living fortress XD

    • teamglister says:

      She is basically a trap; the correct way to deal with her is to just ignore her entirely because as long as you don’t engage her she can’t do anything to you. Of course this is a VR story so she will no doubt acquire even more stupidly unbalanced abilities that shatter the game into tiny pieces, some of which will no doubt solve her ‘I’m harmless unless you attack me’ build.

  8. Is she going to eat her opponents in the tournament?! O.o

  9. Vincent Lin says:

    Just because she’s too slow to reach stronger areas quickly, doesn’t mean she shouldn’t try. She should confront stronger monsters in an attempt to purposely invoke destruction growth.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  10. azurereads says:

    I’m not sure why she put bizarre eater in the shield? She could have used that… Besides, the skill slots are more useful for active abilities cause of her mana pool.

  11. kirindas says:

    Bizarre skills galore~ But it’s so incredibly entertaining despite that. XD
    Thanks for the new chapter!

  12. Clesesia says:

    Thanks for chapter.
    Maple Acquired Skill Gluttony
    Title Ruler of Gluttony is Acquired
    Oops wrong novel

  13. smoggythebear says:

    …that’s one way to kill someone I suppose? iron teeth skill anytime soon?

  14. memerou says:

    yup .. she is definitely becoming a walking bomb … just imagine, her using that explosion skill as an AoE in the middle of crowd with her right in the center of it with no damage whatsoever . . .

    what would happen if she were to somewhat acquire a reflection skill

  15. psychobee says:

    i think if she eat every monster then most of her skill will be a something eater!!!
    thanks for the chapter XD

  16. thedefend says:

    sleeping back

  17. rizyun says:

    this girl’s remind me of a certain movie where some crusader told to kill a certain bunny –>>

  18. This always makes me laugh so much XD XD XD I’m particularly charmed how they keep calling her eating stuff “HP Drain” XD XD XD

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!

  19. She’s like Yun (OSO) and Goburou (Re:Monster) combined…

  20. wow another amazing skill has been found 😀 , how high her luck ? it seems A.I Goddess love her and bestowed a lot of amazing skill IoI ahahaha 😀
    thx for the chapter ^^

  21. midoriha says:

    so eating has become her new way of gaining skills huh…? i’d ove to see the developers’ reactions when they find out about her!

  22. IchsanWin32 says:

    She was eating it again… (ʘдʘ╬)

  23. axelfones says:

    shield loli is gonna cause some interesting things in the tournament…

  24. BubbleBox says:

    What in god’s name is this? You can’t possibly tell me that this game only left secret builds that only the MC would get.

    None of these abilities are lethal to her, so if it still triggers special abilities then any higher level player should be able to gain them as well.
    1. Why is it called VIT? It increases defense but never HP. It should be called DEF.
    2. How is eating a poison dragon only a little bitter? It’s rotting flesh… And let’s say the for some random reason that was the case and that the game also let’s you eat anything… WHY DOES THE POISON DRAGON NOT ATTACK?
    3. 0 agi but able to slash the queen bee? Not to mention abysmal damage. This literally means any other normal player can one shot this walking exp goldmine. (highest Lvl 30+) [MC lvl2 -> lvl8]
    4. How is she gaining any exp? She does not have the speed to catch anyone or the accuracy to hit moving objects. Even if she can level off of low tier monsters the exp gain should be terrible, by the same time she grinds up 1 day for 1 level everyone else should be 5x her level, if not higher. The best her build can actually do is be the best boss tank or any high level dungeon party.

    5. These broken abilities are far better to grind for than levels if the cap is low, otherwise getting higher classes and levels will far outweigh these bonuses, because again you can always go back for them.

    • pokeperson1000 says:

      1. The author was being stupid, no better explanation than that.

      2. She closed her eyes to the fact that it was a zombie. it was simply a bitter once she ignored that aspect. And the poison dragon does attack. But here’s the thing: he defense is at a x4 multiplier due to and . She already fully grinded out the skill, nullifying the boss’s primary programmed method of attacking, and it can be assumed that it’s physical attacks were far weaker. Her absurd defense that essentially put her 4x higher than a normal full defense player her level took care of the rest. Ingestion of the enemy’s body qualifies as an HP drain attack as long as the player swallows.

      3. The queen bee was lured in as close as possible before Maple essentially turned around, pounced, stabbed her sword in and never let go. as long as she dealt damage, she had the ability to just kill the queen bee with extremely tedious long term chip damage. Death by a thousand cuts and all that. The enemy didn’t regenerate health after all. The queen bee wasn’t weak or particularly low on defense, it was just chipped down very slowly. The author isn’t gonna narrate every minute of a very long war of attrition in detail, that would be boring.

      Also, The queen bee would kill other players who have a low enough level to even benefit from your so-called HP grinding strategy, even if we assume it had low enough hp and defense to be one shot (which is a really silly assumption to make, by the way.)

      4. Her ridiculous defense has been shown to completely nullify damage from the enemies she faces. Remember that her defense, being multiplied by her skills, guarantees that it is over 4x higher than anyone of her level. Her defense is the only stat she invested any points into up to this point, as opposed to others who have to properly distribute their stats, so yes, it is in fact more than 4x higher.

      As she is essentially invincible to things her level, as well as things several levels ahead of her, she can do the same as she did with the queen bee, except with multiple monsters, and chip them all down. The exp gained by the level difference will be enough to keep her going and let her stay relatively close to the game’s leveling frontlines, though she won’t be at the forefront. And she has been playing solo up to this point while she waits for her friend who convinced her to play in the first place.

      5. The developers fixed the acquisition exploit after he debuted in the first pvp free for all competition/event.

      Besides, as stated in the story, Only Maple was childish enough to: (a.) be afraid enough of pain to invest everything into defense right off the bat, (b.) play with a hostile rabbit mob for extended periods of time without killing it, (c.) obtain a skill unknown to the rest of the rest of the playerbase as a result of that playing, (d.) Not have the common sense of a gamer (as a newbie drageed into the game by her friend) and inadvertently travel deep into the forest to encounter a boss while still low level, and (e.) Fulfill the conditions for obtaining the undiscovered giant killer skill while anybody else who would be daring/bored enough to try such a thing would die before discovering/unlocking it.

  25. Hanif Nur says:

    【Abominable (Gokuaku Hidō】

    Every time an attack was received from an opponent intentionally, 【VIT +1】

    Masochist Best Skill

  26. Seinvolf says:

    Thank u always for ur great work….

  27. Xera says:

    “Perfectly Perfect” and some of the other dialog is starting to make me think it’s written by Mojo JoJo lulz entertaining though. Her odd way of gaining skills reminds me of a lot of things, but vrmmorpg-wise it reminds me most of “Only Sense Online” and “A Certain Middle-Aged Man’s VRMMO Activity Log” both of which gained skills and recognition in odd ways.

    Both mc’s chose skills that were considered “useless” and end up being pretty powerful. The fictional devs in ossan actually wonder if they should lower the damage of his creations after he kills a dragon using exploding potions. In the end they decide not to as it will “harm the users creativity”

  28. Paralyze ???? Fist the dragon now the bugs she eating them ALIVE!

  29. verdantwraith says:

    【Bomb Eater (BakudanKurai)】
    Reduces explosive-type damage by 50.

    This will be useful later.
