Chapter 27 – Crossing the Kizel Canyon Part 1

“Avangard Tougi Taikai?”

“Yes! You’ll participate, right?”

Avangard Tougi Taikai seems to be an event that is held once every year.
Several days have passed since Siegel woke up and he’s completely recovered, It seems he’s gotten over his depression was well since he’s calling out to every girl he sees in the area…
By chance we were passing through and he saw us.

“It’s the first time I heard about it, how about you Roel?”

“Yeah I have, but if I remember right it’s not a normal festival.”

“Oh? What kind of festival is it?”

“Hmm…how to explain it…”

“A lot of people gather from all over, it’s really fun! And there are a lot of girls! Anyways, the festival has a main event. All the adventurers gathered there can participate in a tournament to decide who is on top. The champion receives 1 million gold! How about that? You drooling for that reward? Want me to escort you there?

“The Imperial capital is a little far, but Ryua-chan wanted to go there. Should we?”

“Well, considering it’s only once a year, if I don’t go now I’ll have to wait a whole year to see it again. Let’s go.”

We had been confirming quest details up until now, but since we’re going to the festival we won’t be able to complete any of them. We quickly returned the documents to their original locations.

“Wait a minute, how do you plan on getting to the Imperial Capital? There’s only way way to get there, through the <Kizel Canyon>. It’s danger level is 10, you know? Ryua won’t have any problems, but lack of preparation is one’s greatest enemy so I will assi-”

“Oh! I overheard you’re going to the Imperial Capital? Perfect timing.”

Cynthia from the item shop came and interrupted Seigel.

“I also have some business at the Capital and I was thinking of making an escort quest. Would it be possible for you two to take it? When we reach the Capital I’ll pay you the reward. Your rank should also raise to B, no?”

“The road to becoming a B rank is rather harsh, you know. It’s one of the obstacles that an adventurer must eventually face. There are a lot of people that have become frustrated while trying to reach that rank. At any rate, it’s a totally different world from being a D rank adventurer. The guild will only recognize you after you’ve done a lot of dangerous quests such as escorting and getting materials from a floor monster, even this upcoming event has merit to them.

“Ryua-chan, how about it?”

“Yeah, the timing couldn’t have been better.”

“Then it’s decided. Rintei-san, please do what you need to do.”

While the procedures were being completed, Siegel wasn’t giving up and kept talking and talking. Nobody responded to him.

[Please escort me to the Imperial Capital!]
[Client: Item Shop’s Cyntha]
[Reward: 1400G]

“S-so messy…”

It was a pretty sketchy looking quest document, it even caught Siegel’s attention.

“It’s fine~. This much will suffice. I would write the details but it would end up being skipped over anyways.”

“No, isn’t something like that…adventurers like it when you write the details.”

“Well, since you’re not taking the quest it’ll be fine.”

“Eh? I’m being left behind?”

We decided to leave for the Capital tomorrow after some deliberation.
(TL: なんやかんやでボク達は翌日からアバンガルド王都を目指す事になった。)

/ / /

It took us one day to get from Kwimill to the <Kizel Canyon> by coach.
There’s some fencing here and there along the road.
I thought it was going to be a more harsh journey but I ended up being disappointed.
However, even if you look over the fence you can’t see the bottom of the Canyon.
If someone slipped and fell off the cliff I’m not confident that I could save them in time.
The pebbles and stones on the road made it rugged, but the coach just kept moving on.

“Ryua-chan, looking down isn’t a good idea~?”

Cynthia was eating some kind of sweet while waving her hand at me. The coach was unexpectedly large on the inside, even with the 4 of us sitting inside there was space left. Why did I say 4 people? Siegel ended up coming along but he was frantically trying to lead the coach.

“That guy…I’ll be honest for a second: he isn’t that helpful. He’s just controlling the horses pulling the coach.
(TL: 「あの人、チャラいけど役立つじゃない。まさか馬車馬を引けたなんて」)

“He is a famous A rank, you know…”

Roel was perplexed at Cynthia’s ability to go at her own pace.
At any rate, is an escort really needed? There doesn’t seem to be many monsters.
I usually don’t need to take a break, but this shaking coach is making me drowsy…


“Oh, are you sleepy? Since you’re an escort you have to stay awake. Here you go.”

Cynthia gave me something red. Without hesitation I instantly put it in my mouth and swallowed it. Suddenly my throat and mouth were assaulted with an extremely painful and spicy burning.

“NNN! Wa-water! Water!”

“Ryua-chan, get a grip! Here, water!”

Thanks to Roel giving me water I was able to stop the pain.
Cynthia was laughing merrily at my reaction.

“That only happened because you’re so careless. Just because monsters haven’t appeared in this place yet doesn’t mean they won’t. That yawn that you just did now, during that brief moment your escort target might get injured and cause the quest to fail, right?”

“I’ll do my best…though what was that just now?”

“Spark Chili Pepper.”

I wonder why she would be carrying something like that?
She’s been giving a lot of affection to Roel and myself…probably because she’s a little older than us.
Though if I had to choose between Cynthia or Ai as a sister, it would be Ai.

“You know, if the floor monster appears I can do something about my boredom.”

“Aww~ I’m sooo sorry~”

Seigel seemed to be looking forward to fighting while Cynthia was just joking with him.
Quite contrary to what they had been talking about, we were attacked by normal monsters.

【<Raging Monkey> x2 appeared! HP:73】

From above us on a cliff there were large monkeys descending.

“Oh! These guys are actually kind of tough due to a higher physical strength than you’d expect. I saw some beginner adventurers crying because of these things. The floor monster is the chief of these guys.”

“Okay, wake yourself up and get ready.”

“Don’t be so carefree!” is what I wanted to say, but that’s just how those two are it seems.
But these monsters are so slow it might make me fall asleep regardless.
I pulverized one of them, and saw Roel was in high spirits as she grilled one with her <Fire Rod>.

【Roel used <Fire Rod>! <Raging Monkey> received 301 damage!】
【<Raging Monkey> was defeated! HP:0/73】

I noticed that she’s been doing more damage than before.
‘She has outrageous talent’ is what I’ve been thinking about Roel lately.

“Wow, neither of you are lacking…especially Ryua-chin, just what was that?”
(ED: ‘chin’ is a suffix for a cutesy nickname)


“How improper!”

Even though I had responded to that nickname Roel still spoke her mind.

“Hahahahaha! Both of you are really strong! You don’t need me it seems!”

“Yeah, really.”

“Ah, please don’t say it like that…”

Siegel has become pretty pitiful lately.
I don’t think he’s a bad person, but he’s quite vain.
We kept advancing until the sun had completely set.

“It’s really dark, as expected of a canyon at nightfall. We should sleep out here tonight.”

“We should light a fire in that case. I’ll use my <Fire Rod>…”

“In this canyon there are no monsters afraid of fire. Just the opposite, actually. It’ll just give away our position. Also there’s no need to use your staff for small things like this.

“We’ll need someone to be a lookout while the others are sleeping.”

I don’t know if we trusted each other yet but being with Cynthia and Siegel seems to be really fun.

“Sure, I’ll do it. I’m good at noticing presences since I’m used to situations like this.

“So you’re like a cat? You can sleep but if something approaches you’ll quickly get up? Like that?”

“Y-yeah. pretty much.”

Cynthia used a weird reference for comparison but it was like that in the <Caves of Hell> pretty much all the time.
No matter where or when I slept I was always attacked.
Suddenly I felt Siegel look at me.
It was different than when he was kidding around, he seems serious this time.
Instantly he went back to normal.

“Making a lady be the lookout is something I can’t agree with. Rely on me for a while and let me do it.”

“Siegel watching over us is reassuring but…”

“It’s fine, it’s fine. We should get some sleep.”

“You really don’t have any worries, huh?”

“If you assault any of us I will kill you.”

“Yeah yeah.”

Why would Siegel assault Cynthia? I wonder why she said that?

Roel and Cynthia fell asleep quickly.
Silence fell upon the inside of the coach. It was truly nighttime now.

“Ryua, are you by any chance awake?”

“…How did you know?”

“Your fighting skills are top notch but you’re rather bad at pretending to sleep.”


“…hey, Ryua, just how high is your level?”

“It says <Overflow> so it seems like it’s over 100.”

“It sure is……over level 100 huh? With your strength alone you’re on par with S rank adventurers…”

“S rank?”

A, B, C , D…going by that order S should be way lower than D.
I’m the same as those guys?

“There are only 10 of them in the world. Each nation has their own elite adventurer…no, they aren’t adventurers anymore. All of them are over level 100, a group of monsters. Most humans end up hitting their level cap and retire at that point.”

I recalled Grundom and what he told me. I understood my limit at that time, and when someone reaches that it seems they end up breaking. I don’t want to end up like Grundom who was dragging others down with him.

“Well, I’m still happy that I haven’t reached my level cap yet. Ryua, just what kind of guy did you defeat at the <Caves of Hell>?”

“Hmm well…<King of Destruction>, Ba…no, Va…Van-something.”

“<King of Destruction>?”

“Yeah, he made a lot of circular orbs of light that evaporated whatever they touched. There was also that large snake and dog, they sure were strong…”

I kept advancing inside of that dark cave, relying on the fire I lit.
No matter how much I think about it, I can’t recall why I worked so hard at that place.
Really, I just can’t remember.

“<Caves of Hell> huh…”

After mumbling that he fell silent for a while.

“Ryua, why don’t you have a match with me?”

Siegel suddenly suggested that, smiling at me.

    1. No, stop, no more! Mercy! Mercy! Mercy to the editor!

      …actually, no, you know what? Get him to translate more. I’ll keep it all in limbo until I feel like it! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ;-;


    1. you really should say that to Xant, I’m burning up with energy from the reactions i have seen.

      also good luck with your series. Lets do our best to burn out Xant


      1. Here is an inspirational quote to keep you going:
        Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!
        “Audrey Hepburn”
        /人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\


  1. 1 more… just one more1…

    Gahh! The cliffhanger!!!


    Oh yeah, Thank for the chapterS!!! And cheers to your very good job


    1. just read ahead if you want moar :v

      and btw after reading the raw till 26 out of curiosity some days ago now they post it all plus chapter 27 lol


      1. whoa i was just joking…anyway thanks for the massive updates and how many levels did u get to in Neptunia? I’m only at start of chapter 3 (still in my first run) at lvl 90 from grinding…


        1. sadly enough, due to lack of time I ended up rushing stuffs and lacked time to grind My average party level is around 90-120 lvl and then i have to go another playtrough because i missed some stuffs(goiing to be the 3rd loop) though so far, i’m getting the imuoutos first. but my main problem is some kind of invisible forced stops me from playing to much(comes in various forms)


          1. I see and lol I havent even gotten through my first playthrough cause I got obsessed with grinding to beat the boss at the end of chapter 3 that someone told me abt and I tried challenging her(fake green heart) at level 85…and needless to say what the result was (I did a little research and found out from a friend who beat her that the minimum level needed to even scratch her was 200+ and even then she auto heals 32k hp everytime its her turn so…yeah)


          2. also, wanna ask you one thing, does the number of deaths, colloseum wins/losses, HDD activations etc in the nepedia go with you into NG+? or are they reset cause the main reason I am grinding so much is cause I was aiming to go for a no death run and it hits me as unfair that the devs did not add in a feature so that if you survive a number of turns in that fight then the cut-scene will start to play


          3. sorry, but i don’t really know, I’m more of a casual gamer that does whatever he wants and for me unlocking and getting plans are more fun (though i’m sometimes too lazy to get the materials) but i think Xant may know, he said that he is already over 300 (i can’t really check it now currently TLing the next chapter will be done tomorrow just hope Xant edits it)


          4. I see, thanks for replying tho and am quite curious as to whether the number of times ur character is KO’ed really rolls over into NG+ and this is my perfectionist obsession XD


        2. >btw Xant, 9 told me u play Neptunia too? are you in a new cycle? if you are, then can you tell me if the nepedia’s record of stuff like # of enemies defeated and number of time’s Ko’ed are reset or same as with previous cycle? (NG+)

          No idea. not on a NG+


          1. i see…too bad XD thank for reply tho and I just can’t get over the fact that fake green heart is way too op that if you dont have the optional dlc’s that raise the lvl cap you can never beat her TT_TT btw what lvl and chapter are you at atm?


          2. mind sharing where you grinded and how high was your level when you beat her? also what chapter is the snow town at? chapter 4?


          3. and wait…you do know the fake green heart I’m talking abt is the stronger one that appears at the end of chapter 3 right? the one where you’re supposed to lose against XD


          4. oh cool, what level were you when you started? and damn it…fake green heart at chapter 3 has me in tears… TT_TT seriously want to go for a no death run also I read that to unlock coliseum you need about 500+ MB?


  2. Thanks for the chapters.

    “I saw some beginner adventurers crying of of these things.”
    The first “of” should probably be “because”.


  3. I really really really want to find out what happens next so I’ve been refreshing every now and then and have just reread this chapter.
    Thanks again for translating it 9 and for editing it Xant.

    “I’ll do my best…thought what was that just now?”
    “thought” should be “though”.


  4. she’s a bit stupid isn’t she, how could she reach the conclusion that S is weaker than D when she’s been doing things that the higher ranked have a hard time with, and she just heard that that guy got to his cap at 24 and hers is at least 100 so how exactly would she be weak
    i get it that she uneducated but still she’s really not making an effort


  5. hey guys, am i the only one who spent like twenty minutes just watching that click for paradise thing i the top right corner of the screen? cause i thought that was like the best thing ive ever seen. it got me so weak.
