Chapter 4: Yuuji Changing Jobs from “Rich Person” to “Magician of the Forest”.
Part 8 Yuuji, Proposal from the Peddler

As expected, after personally seen it, I’m convinced. Yuuji-san....... You are a Visitor that come from another world right?(Kevin)

Kevin, Alice’s acquaintance peddler asked a question to Yuuji.
The Even Yuuji can Understand! Negotiation Manuals with the Peddler in his right and mentioned that in this case he should maintain poker face, neither affirm nor reject the question, and return to the bulletin board.

W-W-What are you talking about?(Yuuji)

He was trembling too much. Even if the possibilities has been pointed out, but for the one who wasn’t familiar with retaining composure, maintaining poker face was something too hard to be done.

I’m sorry if this you became vigilant about this...... I also thought that these words were something unbelievable, but I don’t have any intention to cause harm to Yuuji-san. Rather, if it possible I wanted to win Yuuji-san’s trust somehow.(Kevin)

With smile plastered in his face, Kevin started to talk.

Because I am a peddler without a store, I always made turns in various cities and villages. Even if I appear like this, I have apprenticed in a large store, you know? Since I also know of many stories and if Yuuji-san keeps living at this place like this, then I intend to come here to peddle. Of course I will use every one of my connections and search for Alice-chan’s family with all of my power.(Kevin)

He told his story with a calm manner, Kevin unexpectedly suggested subjects that Yuuji wished for.

“Yuuji! Yuuji!” (Kotarou)

As if calling him, Kotarou struck her right foreleg at Yuuji’s feet.

Yuuji, took a deep breath and then let it out.
Hs shaking that came from being found out that he came from another world had finally calmed down.

Why would you go to that extent? What is Kevin-san’s aim?(Yuuji)

Yuuji straightforwardly asked the conversation partner’s aim. Normally, this was considered as an NG conduct.[1]

Yuuji-san is an honest person...... To said it simply, I want to do trading with a visitor of another world like Yuuji-san. If it’s possible to do transactions, then I thought I could run a shop in Purumie City. Perhaps, I could earn profit to some extent.(Kevin)

But, I don’t hold anything that great, you know?(Yuuji)

Yuuji-san....... First, Yuuji-san and Alice-chan’s clothing. It had shape, color and quality that I’ve never seen before. And then that farming tool that you hold in your left hand? Or is that a weapon? The metal used for it is something I can’t recognize. How did you produce it, I wonder. Above all, the things that you’ve been taking glances at just now. Perhaps it’s paper, right? How much do you have? Do you know how to make it? And then, the mirror that the adventurers gave to me a few days ago, I made sure I bought every one of the mirrors from them. Even the cause of why I arrived today was to deny the additional mirror handed down to them. The quality was too high, so it’s quite the dangerous goods. If you didn’t mind, if I could make a business deal with Yuuji-san, then I don’t mind return everything as a gift. At any rate, even if I had apprenticed in a large store, these were frightening goods for me to possess right now.[2](Kevin)

Although at first he showed amazed expression to some extent, afterwards Kevin’s expression became gentle. Just like admonishing a child, he showed the value of the things that Yuuji brought.
In the middle of the talking, he stole a glance on the adventurers, to make sure that they didn’t heard his words.
His experienced conducts was different from the piece-of-junk Yuuji.

Cloth, paper, mirror, if one is to able reproduce even one with the same quality, then I can become the number one merchant in Purumie City. That’s why I want to do business with Yuuji-san. Furthermore there......(Kevin)

Although Kevin had been speaking with gentle expression the whole time, he hesitated to speak right now.
Yuuji who had stricken by that calm zeal asked “what’s wrong?”

There’s a woman I’ve fallen in love with, but she’s the daughter of the president of the large shop where I apprenticed. I believe we love each other but the president said I won’t give my daughter to a blockhead that doesn’t even have a shop!.That’s why, this is my big chance!(Kevin)

Kevin told his story with embarrassed expression, Yuuji was, “Oooh” gave a curious response.
Kotarou was staring in fascination, just like a maiden attracted to love stories. She is a maiden. She’s a dog, though.

This isn’t something bad for Yuuji-san. Therefore, please think about it for today and then please let us talk again tomorrow morning. For me, I want to do business with Yuuji. What I can offer is information and goods. Since I peddling around the frontier villages and cities, food, crops, seeds or seedlings, household goods, farm tools, axes or ploughs to open land, clothes, drugs; I could provide extensive array of items. What I wish is the knowledge Yuuji-san has. The cloth, paper and mirror, please teach me how to make them.

The sight of Kevin making a speech with zeal overawed Yuuji.
However, without giving any reply for that case, “I understand, let’s talk about this tomorrow.” He returned back to the house.

Without giving a clear answer, just like the manual said, the conversation was postponed until tomorrow.
Taking his piece-of-junk actions before into the consideration, he might have grown up a bit.

Well, rather than calling it Yuuji’s fine play, it was only in accordance to Kevin’s proposal.

“Well, I think this is not that bad.” (Kotarou)

Kotarou was sometimes playful with Yuuji, thus one person and one animal returned inside the home.


So Yuuji’s really nicknamed Piece of Junk by the narrator? I mean the narrator called him junk, junk numerous time…

Name : Yuuji
Age : 31
Job : Magician of the Forest (self-proclaimed)
Title : Piece of Junk. Big Breast Lover. Alice’s Guardian.

[1] NG: Not Good = Failure
[2] Kevin means that the goods are too high of a value for him to possess right now. One can only wonder how high the mirror will fetch in the market. Even in modern world, mirror can be quite expensive, especially the larger one.


  1. For some reason I feel that Kevin isn't trustworthy.

    1. every merchant in otherworld is evil.
      believe me. even inside the world that *cough*shield*cough* the merchant that i read is all scammer.

    2. He hold the access to a great source of knowledge from another world. Treating his source right will bring him great benefits. Only an idiot would mistreat his gold-laying goose. For that reason, Kevin is trustworthy right now.

      Doesnt mean He wont take advantage of Yuji's knowledge. but he can be trusted to keep this location secret and protect Yuji to his best.

    3. @tommy not all of the merchant that the shield met is scammer because the shield's first merchant acquaintance is trustworthy and he even made all the shields armor...

    4. I think so too, but Kotarou seems to be fine, even more than against the adventure.

    5. But that shield himself is scammer (lol)

  2. thanks for the chap
    basicaly the author hates yuji and loves kotarou.
    that's all

  3. Thanks for the chapter.

    If what the peddler wants is information, i wonder what would happen if he ever discovered the wealth of information the internet that yuuji has access too can offer

    1. It would be more like Otherworld with a Smartphone, just new techniques and technologies coming out every week, and new recipes and cooking styles when ever the MC gets bored.

    2. Maybe he can give them a copy of dungeon meshi? hahah

  4. / ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ \
    |  Thanks!!!! Nepu!!!! |

    ぶお~ん( ⊃┳⊃
       ( ( ・ω・)

  5. knew that so many mirrors was a bad idea. I mean that stuff is like 5 times its weight in gold since its too hard to make, or impossible to make.

    1. Yeah, I already thought it was overkill when I thought he was handing out two pocket mirrors, but he gave out four IIRC.

  6. paper and mirror still a good trade, because yuuji have internet. but, he need a strategy.

    okay, NEET army, time to get work :)

  7. He got free electricity right there. Some bathtub experiments should yield excellent results.

    High grade liquor, for one thing.

    1. u forgot the important one. it's INTERNET,, a NEET WITHOUT INTERNEET IS JUST INTER .. LEL

  8. I still wonder how Kevin knew that yuuji was from another world?

  9. learn them enough to make porn movies, boom problem solved
    now some of you may think that just having sex would be faster but comeon, it's yuuji

    thanks for the chapter

  10. When did he get that second title ? the "Big Breast Lover" one

  11. Thanks!

    What happened to Takarakuji de 40 Oku Atattanda kedo Isekai ni Ijuusuru?
    It was getting into a really good part! =p

  12. Thanks, I can't wait what will happen next. Keep on translating please!

  13. She’s a dog, though.

    I trust Kotarou, she likes the merchant more than the adventurers...

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!!

  14. Once info is sold, it can be resold (to the same person) though? So how is he going to get value for his info? Its not like the peddler can actually afford it at a fair market value after all.

  15. simple reason that hes trustworthy, he doesn't even own a shop yet, but hes a good merchant. A not so trustworthy merchant would already own a shop through devious means.

  16. Ah, yuuji really pissed me off in this chapter.

    The anons worked really hard for no benefit to write those instructions, and he immediately discards them. Does he have no respect? I don't blame him for dropping his poker face but making a retreat and consulting the board was of massive importance.

    Him continuing the conversation in any form at that point was the worst possible idea. Basically suicide. Worse than eating the mushroom, worse than trying to invite the adventurers in.

    The anons knew this and that's why they didn't bother trying to write instructions besides to seek backup. They knew if yuugi tried to continue interacting with the peddler on his own from there it had a huge probability of leading to Bad End.

    As others have said the author really needs to do something, anything, that will make yuugi regret his naivety. He isn't just acting ignorant, and he isn't just an idiot. He's putting his life and the life of his new sister at risk. When a kid tries to stick a fork in an outlet we don't say "Ah well they're just an idiot." We reprimand them because being an idiot isn't an excuse for actively trying to throw your life away.

    This part of his character isn't fun or entertaining to me. I just can't help but think yuugi needs to take things more seriously for the sake of Alice. Being a fool on your own may be fine, but he chose to take responsibility for her and he needs to take that seriously. He can't keep acting like an idiot, and I don't enjoy seeing him do so.

    Ugh. Thanks for the translation and sorry for the rant.

    1. Well, I think the author will probably end up going easy on him regardless. I mean, at least he didn't prolong the conversation and eventually followed the directions, but he should have done so immediately. No "I'll hear him out" bullshit - just excuse yourself and say that they'll speak again later. Only a fool would listen to that whole spiel from the peddler and further give away the weakness of his position.

    2. I was actually more bothered with his retarded behavior and stammering, even though he was a serious hikikomori before one would think that all this time of hunting, foraging and doing other stuff would make him a little bit more reliable. But it seems he hasn't really matured at all since the first prologue. Then there's the fact that he went on even though he was supposed to go for backup, that was somewhat more acceptable to me because he already ruined it, that stammering was enough for the peddler to ascertain that YES, he's from another world, it's already too late to play dumb. Might as well have asked his intentions like this without talking yourself and then ask for backup from there, which he did.

      Well, his overall behavior just makes me cringe a lot of the time. The story would be far funnier and better if he was actually a bit capable/reliable/intelligent and more self-confident. Right now he's even worse than the normal wimpier type japanese mcs that you see in other novels.

      Protagonists prone to pure idiocy are not funny, they're frustrating. It's fine if they're somewhat silly, but don't turn them into retards that just makes mistakes all the time and can't think properly, that's not comedy, that's just subpar writing.
