No much progress in translating... Not much time in RL to translate...

Chapter 2: Yuuji a “Loner-NEET” Evolves into “NEET”
「Yuuji-nii, since it has become soft, the meat can already be cut up and eaten you know?」(Alice)
「Is that so? Is that so? The knowledgeable Alice is so amazing」(Yuuji)
Under the coaching of Alice, they dressed and preserved the carcass of wild boar that had its fur skinned off and its viscera extracted.
It had been one week since the little girl Alice made the splatter film like dissection scene.
The forest had already been covered with snow, the whole surface turned into a silver world as far as the eye could see.
In the garage-turned-workshop, the cold air also entered and turned the exhaled breath white.
「With this even if it’s winter we can eat meat! The giblets are delicious but the first thing must be that, Steak.」(Yuuji)
「Waaai~! Alice, really likes meat! Can’t wait!」(Alice)
It seems that Alice was a carnivorous person. So for Yuuji, who thought that he could survive on preserved food like emergency rations and also acorns picked from the forest, pickled mushrooms, and berry jams, to be able to procure wild boar’s meat was something fortuitous.
「If the city is a nice place then should I migrate there for Alice’s sake? Or should I reclaim the surrounding forest for cultivation? Whichever I choose, when spring comes, I need to see the City. I’ll give it more thought when that time arrives.」(Yuuji)
Yuuji’s strong point was to postpone doing things.
「What should I do in the winter? That’s right! Alice, let’s study together! Can Alice read letters? Do you know how to do calculation?」(Yuuji)
「Alice, you know, likes eating meat, but Alice also likes to study! Alice can’t read the difficult letters, but Alice can read the numerals and also do calculations! Since Alice had helped with the merchant who came to the village!」(Alice)
「I see, I see, then can Alice teach me the numerals? Then I will teach Alice abut calculations.」(Yuuji)
「I understand! Alice will teach Yuuji-nii!」(Alice)
In this way, Yuuji passed his first winter in this world.
But, he wasn’t alone, with his new family member Alice and Kotarou, two people and one animal passed the winter.
Yuuji a Loner NEET evolves into NEET.
Numeric Characters or Numerals, since I don’t know if this refer to the decimal Indo-Arabic number-like system or the classical numerological alphabetical system like the Roman or Greek So I leave it alone as Numerals / Numeric Characters.
