It’s not April Fool’s Day yet for us, so you’ll have to wait and see. But for some early fun, I’d thought I’d throw this at you:
After the “Read More” line is a bare-bone’s edited and completely unformatted version of Gob Ch 22. This is what the TLs look like after rrelentless or Ren or I have proofread and tried to clean up 9’s mess, but before we’ve have done any real editing or formatting of any kind (so basically, not as bad as it is originally, but not really publishing quality either……no offense, 9–you’re actually pretty good at translating compared to some others I’ve worked with…)
I thought it might be fun if y’all try it out once. It’s not that hard of a read, honestly, but it just doesn’t flow as smoothly, does it? Well, that’s all us editors are really here to do…make things smoother.
Anyway, if you are willing to read ahead and give up some of the quality, keep going! A warning though, this chapter does introduce new characters and new settings (it’s the start of a new arc…)!!!
If you think that the experience is diminished without the flow of the language, then don’t read ahead!!!!! I’ll post my fully edited version in a day or two, so please wait a little while longer. Then, feel free to come back and read this once you’ve read the actual version.
Also, feel free to compare and criticize my editing skills (in this case, just direct it towards me since I’m doing the bulk of the editing for this chapter). When my fully edited version comes out, please comment your thoughts. If you think I’m changing too much, or I’m not really doing anything, or I’m not doing my job right, please say so! Of course, I can’t promise to change anything, but I always appreciate criticism, as long as it’s constructive.
Thanks for supporting us!

I was Introduced to a Part-time Job
≪Rusty/Gob Part-timer Applicant’s Perspective≫
「gegigyao! (what the hell is with this brat?!?)」
「gegyoo (what a cheeky f**ker!)」
The adult goblings that suddenly appeared insulted me, it the 30th time already.
I beating them up a bit, they’ll go crying “eeeeek” and run away. Really a what splendid small fry.
Though they are the same race as me. tohohoho…
Though now that I think about it Master’s order are strange.
this morning, seeing off Saron-anego and Arishia who were sending the kids home, and when we 3 teacher and students are about to go home.
「Ah, at a dungeon near this Raitsu village, I think I will have you take up a part-time job there. This is a test from me」
Is what she said.
she said i’ll understand if i go, thus diving in the dungeon for half a day.
pushing on while beating up the goblins, right now it’s the 3rd floor underground. The goblin bastards are becoming less, in exchange you’ll see more Kobolds and Orcs.
If i get hungry, I’m thinking of eating these guys up.
there is already no disguises so, if i meet up with adventurers we might end up having to kill one another but, if possible i don’t want to eat humans. Before i took a sample of the adventurers i killed, it was pretty much delicious. It would be dangerous if it became a habit so, since then i haven’t eaten any human meat.
And while i was thinking about it, before i was aware of it I arrived at a boss like room.
it’s probably just a small-fry boss….though when i took a peek, there were a big orc wearing an armor and two normal orcs. their weapons are battle axes.
yes, i quickly killed them.
Ah, just kidding. I just half-killed them. I can take their magic stones but, i have been feeling that someone looking at me since earlier. He will probably appear with the pretext of contacting me as a same monster.
「Well, that was splendid!」
see it came.
looking back, there was a horse head that was neatly bowing. but below from the neck it was a human-shaped body wearing a tuxedo. and furthermore, his whole body is a slender, a fine figure of a man.
ah, this guy also have it….is what my first impression is.
and, this guy is way stronger than me….Is what my second impression is.
「You may call me in the name of Mezzrow. inexperienced I may be but i am the Dungeon Master of this labyrinth. If it is fine with you, may i ask you what your name is?」(9: Mezzrow from Mezz Mezzrow, i googled it)
「ah, yes. Just a goblin with a name of Rusty」
「eh? what is?」
「like Using honorifics on the first meeting, and more over being humble to oneself. Even though you are still young, the level of intelligence is high. and to add more this unique feeling of magic power…. It seems like you even acquired an inherent magic. From that gentle personality and the refined body, it looks like you have acquired a good teacher.」
awesome!, in an instant he totally got everything about me correctly.
this gentleman with a horse head is frightening. Those observing eyes, befitting in this scene of carnage, i wonder how far he had went.
and so, my opposition had totally disappeared.
since he came out nicely, i’ll try to be more polite with my words.
「Everything is as you have said. As the matter of fact, by the orders of my Master i was told to take a part-time job here. I thought there would be someone employing adventurers but…. possibly, is it that you are employing monster side?」
yeah, i stupidly went and said everything bluntly.
afterall, awkwards tricks and secrets won’t really work on this guy.
The smile of the courteous Mezzrow changed to a natural smile.
「yes we are, My dungeon is always recruiting part-timers. then, to train well an excellent talent like that of Rusty-kun is a delightful thing. Without fail, please let this dungeon hire you! obviously, we will be arranging a daily pay for you.」
「o-okay…..I look forward to working with you」
「well then let us immediately give you the employee training!」
「ah….no, it’s a part-timer employment training course. Sadly there are a lot of monsters with low intelligence….. A monster like Rusty-kun with a high intelligence will need to go through a high class curriculum training course」
「isn’t that saying me to be a management candidate…..」
「it’s a “j-u-s-t-i-n-c-a-s-e” part-timer training. well then, I will be personally training you so, please do your best to keep up. also today’s pay will be calculated by hours so don’t worry」
ah, somehow the conversation just now, i kinda understand what kind of person he is.
for some reason it’s quite scary to sign a contract with this guy.
let’s make sure to press down that I will only be working for only a week.
「……..and so this dungeon has 50 layers and is classified as a mid-scale dungeon. As for the distribution of goods as explained earlier, using the teleportation magic circle we are having a direct transactions from the Demon Country Capital City Alkabern」
「yes, teacher! From that much goods, what kind of items are they?」
「A good question. The goods sent from Alkabern are jewels for the treasure chests, weapons, potions, rations, crime slaves and periodical laborers. What we send from here are equipment’s taken from the dead adventurers, gold and silver coins, the currency of this foreign country, the rescued near death former adventurer slaves and the returning laborers」
「umm….so are the monster going to be enough? if they got killed by the adventurers, i think we would not have enough of them….」
「tentatively in this dungeon there is a livestock and residence wards established. the majority goblin, kobold and orcs are constantly reproducing, I can regulate them in my mind. and since the demon country’s crime rate is high, we won’t lack crime slaves. rather you let the adventurers deal with them, their bodies as material we can exchange them for weapons, magic tools. Then we have those cocky human adventurers whom we can acquire equipments and foreign goods from, it becomes an extremely excellent economic efficiency.」(9: damn dungeon are businesses now, i suck at economics)(editor’s note: try the manga investor z or maoyuu maou yuusha to learn some economics through manga.)
this is bad. The studying is becoming really interesting.
Before master lectured us economics by accident but, regarding the demon country she said that someday we will understand, it was something suggestive. I’m sure that someday that she would send me here.
It seems that even among the human society, a dungeon with this system management, most of them don’t know. The dungeon core sucks magic essence from the earth pulse is true, since it’s true that a dungeon with plenty of magic essence makes monster reproduce easily. you wouldn’t have ever thought, that the excess magic power supports the economics of the Demon country by having a distribution of goods with the demon country. Even in the human society they offer an unending supply of laborers, building up a production.
The dungeon master’s job is to keep this WIN =WIN relation regulated.
it seems that with just Mezzrow-san regulation of this difficulty doesn’t really concern the life of adventurers themselves but, there is always this constant reckless adventurers that takes challenges beyond themselves causing them to die. If you compare it to japan it’s probably like doing the pachinko business.
In everything knowing when to quit, ending your disadvantages, a strong mentality and intelligence is essential.
having satisfied my thirst of knowledge, i took a deep breath.
It seems that Mezzrow had found a good place to stop explaining….
「Now then, let’s end the rough lecture here. After the meal break, i plan of having you do your primary job」
「yes. For now i’ll have you fight adventurers as a mid-boss. Of course, so that level of ability will be suitable for you, i’ll have you let me regulate it」
on a face of a hose, a demon like smile appeared. (editor’s note: that will haunt me, a horse face doing a demonic smile)
Me and Mezzrow-shi were transferred to a room with a lot of stored weapons.
It’s seems to be this dungeons armory.
「now then, first of all let me ask a question, Rusty-kun do you have your main weapon?」
「eh….no, as a tool i pretty much use a hatchet but, as a weapon its my claws and tail. after all the me as a base is already strong enough」
「fuu…..yare yare…..you’re much more of a muscle than what’ve thought Rusty-kun」
Mezzrow-shi covered his shoulders as if making a fool out of me.
even i would be irritated with that.
「My ambition is to become a magician. something like a weapon-…」
「can you still say the same when you’re gonna die?」
「A monster that is the king of the mountain, those kind of monster do sure take pride of the strength of themselves. really how worthless. Those with tiny pride only has tiny power on their body. Monster who had tough bodies, I’ve seen them defeated by the strategies and weapons though up by humans you know. Selling off the bodies, being exposed to those low-lives, being turned to alcohol and being sneered at―――― can you say that this is the end of those prided ones?」
「guu….but still, if i just live quietly and peacefully-….」
「There is no reason not to kill a goblin」
「I-I’ll turn the tables on humans using magic-….」
「Goblins are pest, food, trash――――many monster’s recognized them as that, It’s the demon country’s common sense. “someday you’ll become a great magician?” really what a splendid thing. However, can you declare that tomorrow you won’t be killed? Are you going to let your tiny pride abandon your very best endeavour? Are you the same muscle brain as an ogre? can you see the reality? will someone even listen to a goblin that talks about justice and morals? 」 (9: monster society and human society…)
u..uguguguguuu…..d-dammit…..i can’t even debate back…..
courteously right, stating the facts in order, and insulted intellectually….i’m on the verge of dying.
bvut still, this horsed headed gentlemen―――doesn’t know any forgiveness and mercy.
「your blind belief of the teaching of your master — Grand Magus Reivell, aren’t you misunderstanding her?」
h-how brutal….taking out Master’s name….that’s cheating……
dealing the killing blow, my heart easily crumbled.
The heck, it’s already in a million pieces.
「…..e…guu…higu….I’m very sorry. I have…been too self-conceited~~. so please ……forgive me…..*wheeze*….please drill in me…the way to use weapons…..」
My mental resistance, is lower than i thought.
also i was to see reality.
this horse headed gentleman Mezzrow-shi――――authentically a genuine demon.
