Ogregirl Chapter 59
Blunt Type Ogre Girl’s Way to Live Streaming
Reunion with Touka
『Touka-chan appeared! now this is a win!』
Leaving the listeners who were acting like so, I looked up to Touka-chan. (9: remember touka-chan is tall)
「Long time no see, though I think that it wasn’t that long…..」
「Hmm, well yeah. Recently these past few days have just been way too eventful.」
「I have seen your figure many times during streams, but it was trouble after trouble after all. It was my first time meeting Kohaku-san in the flesh too. She helps out troubled players on the way, she is quite a famous NPC, you know?」
“Actually there is a fanclub too.” Touka-chan, saying that, opened up her menu. What she showed me was a fan club member exclusive thread.
「You look like you don’t care.」
「To be honest, yeah.」
Even if they came into contact with me, it was not like we could do a give and take.
It may have been just two days, but it was still an entire two days.
Between Kohaku and me, we were able to form more of a connection than the surface of the stream showed.
I didn’t want to do anything that would be a demerit to Kohaku, nor did I want to let someone make me do something like that.
Well, I didn’t think that I had to worry that much about it.
「Now that I think about it, why is Touka-chan here?」
「Since the day before yesterday, or for two days, I had been grinding levels, so I thought that I would also do some grinding today too. And then I noticed that I missed out on Suku-neesama’s stream notification. So I hurried and ran over.」
「I see, now that I think about it, you could also see streams even when you are in game.」
Just like the citizens of the kijin exclusive thread, you could see streams using the in-game menu.
If you wanted to use the BBS then you only needed your player ID and password and then you could see it the same way. But if you wanted to post something, you were limited to doing so in safe zones like towns.
It seemed like there was a problem with exposing the streaming players’ locations, but that was only something you had to deal with if you decided to play like that.
In days past, in online games, there was this thing called stream sniping that was an act that was done a lot as if it were normal. Well, if there were some stalker victims then the GMs would deal with them and could eternally ban them.
「Touka-chan, what is your level now?」
「34!? You sure did put in a lot of work.」
I didn’t really remember it that well, but I think that the level Touka-chan was at when we played together was around 25.
For Touka-chan, who should have been busy with her studies, to level up nine times, it should have taken quite some time.
Moreover, she had a support-type stat build. If she had raised it alone, it would have been rather difficult.
「I like this type of grind. The more time you spend the more your values raise after all.」 (9: yes, gotta love the grinds)
Touka-chan had a floaty atmosphere around her as she said that. So there was also that kind of thinking.
Certainly, if you thought about being able to get a clear return such as experience and items for your efforts, as compared to reality where you can’t always see the results of your efforts, there seemed to be more meaning to put effort into this kind of thing.
「Suku-neesama, what’s your level right now?」
「32….no, it raised to 33.」
Before I fought against Kohaku, I was at level 31, but before I knew it, it had been raised to level 33.
That was weird, I felt like I had only heard one level up notification…..Ah, maybe…
「Since I fought against Kohaku, I got some EXP.」
「Even though you lost?」
「Gufu-….W-well yea, I lost after all…..」
「Aah, I’m very sorry, Suku-neesama!」
Touka-chan’s honest and blunt words pierced through my chest. I felt like I could even hear the sound of something being pierced.
『Lol, so merciless』
『unexpectedly sensitive about it』
「Well, you know…isn’t it impossible…. to win against Kohaku, that’s impossible you know….? Her level absolutely goes over 3 digits…..」
「Aah, don’t feel down, Suku-neesama!」
From the supporting artillery attack from the listeners and from Touka-chan, I died. So regretful.
「Then, can you guys fight with and win against “her”? Is what I want say, though.」
「Just with stomp she can create a pseudo-earthquake, really, just what in the world was that….」
「I thought it was an earthquake in the game, but that was Kohaku-san’s attack. It seems like the entirety of Tria shook, you know?」
It was probably possible if we were going with the assumption that Kohaku’s strength is four digits, but if I could reach a four-digit level of strength, could I also do that kind of thing?
Just one hundred fifty more levels and I could probably reach that. But naturally, my stats would end up way too unbalanced if I did that.
「Changing the topic」
「What is it?」
「I wonder why these plains is just full of gorillas」
This wasn’t limited to WLO, but in every game area, it was natural for each field to have some sort of theme.
If I were to raise the example of a certain RPG game then there is a secret field where only slime-type monsters spawn, or like a bonus field where only high-experience monsters spawn.
Another example would be WLO’s Lawress wetlands near Dualis. It was inhabited with frogs, and so it was a frog kingdom.
At the south gate at the Town of Beginnings, the field that was spread out before the Forest of the Edge was wolf territory.
Also, there were areas like the Forest of Magic that only had magic-using monsters. It really wasn’t weird at all for fields to be made with some kind of theme in mind.
If I simplified it, forests where insect monsters appeared, or seas where fish monsters appeared, those kinds of nature-based areas, the spawn patterns of those could also be considered a theme.
I’ll say it in advance, but it’s not like I knew a lot about gorillas.
That being said, they seemed they would fit better in forest settings and it felt out of place seeing them on the plains.
And if you said that these plains just had a gorilla theme then the topic just ended there.
Their experience was good, and they were just tough, not really hard to defeat.
Unlike the area around Dualis, if you went over the lake, then the area around Tria had a calm weather and climate, so it wasn’t really that hard to deal with the gorillas.
「The reason that this field is full of gorillas, its because the boss of this field is the same, you know?」
「The boss is? is it Named?」
Just like how Aria was among the pack of wolves?
Well, Aria was a loner wolf, but it was a monster suited to be the boss of a field of wolves.
I asked thinking like that, but the words that came in return were words of denial.
「No, it’s different. Its a boss that defends the boundary between Tria and Fias.」
「Boundary, you say… the main thing is the dungeon, right? Right now, it’s just plains all around from what I see. Do the gorillas come from that far away?」
A gorilla in the field and a gorilla in the dungeon.
Imagining all sorts of gorillas on the way there, I winced a bit from it.
It seemed that she read through what I was thinking. Touka-chan looked flustered as she waved her hands, denying what I was thinking.
「It’s not like that, Suku-neesama. The way from Tria to Fias, there are no dungeons」
There were…no dungeons?
「Between Tria and Fias, there is a large river. It’s a very big river that spans one kilometer. To go over that large river, there is only one huge bridge. And that is the place of the third guard, called the《Armored Mount Gorilla》. It’s a fight you can’t avoid if you’re headed to the 4th town.」 (9: mount gorilla, mountain gorilla)
『G o r i l l a』
『↑ why is the last one in english lol』
Even though it was the boss of the river….mount…? I locked that word away in my chest and instead imagined the silhouette of the boss with a really strong-sounding name.
Now that I thought about it, Rin-chan said something about there being quite a strong boss on the way from Tria to Fias, if I remembered right.
Most likely it was that Armored Mount Gorilla.
「It’s a really strong boss. It’s blatantly tough, and it has high attack power, and it has sufficiently fast speed, a physical type boss. I also challenged it with a friend once, but I just lost.」
「Wait, is it a physical type boss?」
「Yes. It does not have magic attacks. Just that, it has big enough attack power to give quite big damage to tanks. If you can say that you have an advantage with being a physical type, then it’s a bit complicated.」
「Well, but still…It has good affinity with me, right?」
Hearing about how the Armored Mount Gorilla’s characteristics as a pure physical type, I thought that it had a really good affinity with me. We matched types, after all.
Well, rather than having a good affinity with physical types, it was more like I was just fatally weak to magic types…but still, from what I heard, it wasn’t the type that targeted my weak point.
「You’re right. And so, I have one proposal.」
Touka-chan, who agreed with what I was thinking with a smile, raised her finger, saying that she had a proposal.
「Together with me, would you like to challenge the boss right now like this?」

9: I wonder how many gorillas I have typed in this chapter
Cassie (PR/ED): A collaboration, huh? Interesting. And yeah, gorillas. My image of this plains is like the one in the mobile SAO game.
