24-021 Earn money from preserved food...?

Oh, I must've missed that. ......
"Yeah. I was only thinking about the price.
'If it's good, it'll sell even if it's expensive' doesn't even exist in Japan, so it was impossible.

 It was a little late, so we walked a little faster to the forest and had a review meeting.

We should have thought about demand and customer base first.
You're right. You can't sell bento from the department store in a convenience store, can you?

 It depends on the location, but if it's a convenience store on the way to school, for example, it's sure to remain unsold.
 I think the guy whose parents own a convenience store also said, "If you don't take into consideration the location, weather, season, and customer base when deciding what to stock, you won't make a profit.
 At the time, I just said, "Oh, I see...", but I guess business is not easy in any world.

What are you going to do? Do you want to continue making the dried dindol?
"Hmmm, what do you two want to do?

 I don't know if the profit is worth the trouble.

I'll leave the decision to Haruka, since she's the one with the biggest burden, but I think she's a little less motivated.
I vote for making more dried meat.
Dried meat doesn't sell. First of all, I don't want to eat meat.

 In the first place, I don't even know if it will be good dried meat.
 It would be a great shock if the result was sad.

I think it would be better to continue, though. I'm sure you'll get more than you'd normally get selling it, and your motivation won't go up considering all the mobile food you can buy.
...... Oh, it's going to blow up.
...... enough that I can turn a blind eye to a few things.

 In the event that you've got a lot of money, you'll be able to use it to buy a lot of things.
 Instead, it is inferior in taste, and it is difficult to describe its wonderful taste.
 If I had to describe it, I would say that I felt like I was eating paper mache.

 We don't need it at the moment because we don't take overnight jobs, but when we do, we'll have to think of some way to do it.
 The problem will be solved if I can complete a high-performance magic bag by then, but there is no way I can do that easily.
 The world isn't so kind as to allow magic abilities to increase so easily.

How about we sell a third of the food as is, and then dry the rest and sell the other half?
I don't mind, but is Haruka okay? I don't mind, but is Haruka alright? She had a rough day yesterday, didn't she? There's also the dried meat.
Yeah. You can say that it is spicy, but you can also keep the dried meat in salt until the end of the dindol season.

 The season of dindol that Haruka is referring to is the period when dindol can be harvested.
 It varies depending on the weather, but it lasts about a month.
 According to Diora's prediction, this year's season will most likely be over within the next week or two.

 That would certainly solve the problem of magic power.
 Instead, the problem of the barrels will increase.
 I promised my father that I would get it for him, but whether or not we have enough barrels for a week, and whether or not we can put them in our room, that's the problem.

"Well, if we can get Haruka to rest when she's not using magic, and we do all the other work ourselves, it'll be a little better.
"That's all we can do?
Unlike in games, you can't spend skill points to learn magic.

 It's easy to do a lot of things if you can earn points by leveling up, but apparently the evil gods don't provide that level of after-sales service.
 If I could see him again, I'd like to ask him some questions, but he said something like he was a joker, so it's probably impossible.

Toya is completely out of it, isn't she?
"Yes. It's common knowledge that it's difficult for a beastman to learn magic. Maybe that's why they're so good at magic.
Elves are fine, right? Nao, why don't you learn water magic?
Ugh. ......

 Don't say that so easily~.
 I'm not sure what to make of it.
 I'm not sure what to make of it.

In my case, I've got the qualities of light, wind, water, and even alchemy. You can't blame Nao for not having fire magic, and it's hard to find space-time magic with those qualities.
"That's right!

 As expected of Haruka, she says the kindest things.
 I'm not sure what to say, but I'm sure you'll understand.

It's a good idea to buy a basic grimoire and study it, including me, because there's nothing you can't remember.
"...... Yes.

 This is the first time I've been able to do so.

    I'm sure you'll agree.

 The selling price of dried dindol has been set at 800 rares each.
 We can harvest about 300 a day. If we keep 100 of them for ourselves and sell the rest as fresh and dried, we can earn around 100,000 rares a day.
 It seems like a lie that at first we were struggling to get only 1,000 rares each.
 Instead, we all have to work until we're exhausted every day.

 Haruka, in particular, was under a lot of strain, and even though we took care of everything we could, we were not in a position to work on the dried meat.
 For ten days after the first day, we had been harvesting in three different locations, but when the number of pieces we could harvest in one day dropped below 200, we decided to stop collecting dindol.
 In fact, we could have continued for a while longer, but Haruka's fatigue became too much to bear, so Toya and I decided to force the issue.
 To be honest, Haruka and I were relieved to finally be able to take a day off, even though it would mean less income.

 Oh, they came out, on the third day.
 My fears were completely unfounded.

 First, strength.
 It's a little clever, but it's not a big problem since Task Boar is basically stronger than you.

 And the humanoid.
 Again, not a problem at all.
 It didn't feel like a person at all.
 It was just a biped walking on two legs, holding a piece of stick like a weapon. If you want to say they are close to humans, Japanese monkeys are closer.
 Is it because their facial structure is completely different?
 In a way, I feel relieved, but in the sense of getting used to the human form, I failed. It's a subtle result.
 Perhaps I should seriously consider hiring an instructor to gain experience in human games.

 The day after the dindle season ended, I took the next few days off from work to rest and make dried meat.
 I took the meat out of the barrels, washed it in water, and laid it out in a colander for Haruka to [dry].
 Haruka went back to her room to rest, while we packed the dried meat in bags and practiced on our own until Haruka was feeling better.
 This is repeated.

 It's not a complete rest, but since we're almost always using [Searching for Enemies] when we're outside, just not needing it is enough of a mental rest.
 As for self-discipline, it's also a rest day, and the intensity of the exercise is not so intense that it leaves you tired the next day, so I guess you could call it a rest day.

 What can I say? To be honest, I'm more worried about not doing anything.
 I'm sure Toya feels the same way when he's constantly training.
 To put it simply, "What if two vipu bears appear? is.
 You will probably die. No, you will almost certainly die.

 Run away?
 No, you can't. Bear, he's a sprinter.
 Even a world record short-distance runner can't beat it if it's chasing you.
 If we hadn't encountered that thing, would we have been able to relax a bit and enjoy sightseeing in another world?
 Or would we have been unable to have a sense of danger and would we have been exposed to death so easily?

 I don't know which it is, but we're alive now, and we're living a good life.
 So we're not so wrong.
 I guess that's good.

    "Well, we finally have more room.

"Well, we finally have some room!
Yeah. Yeah, Toya's getting carried away. ......

 The salted barrels that had occupied our room for three days were finally gone.
 The room was filled with more barrels than we expected, and we had a hard time even walking around. The main cause of this was, needless to say, Toya.

 In the first few days, we saved only one boar a day, but after we decided to leave the drying work until Dingdol was finished, we went hunting even if we had to go out of the way if we were nearby, and there were days when we hunted two boars.
 And since Toya had to take care of the boars himself, it was hard for him to complain.

"Now we don't have to worry about the smell anymore.
"Yes. To be honest, it was a little hard.

 You have to process a lot of meat in a room.
 Moreover, the processed meat is salted and accumulates in the room.
 No matter how much [purification] was applied, the smell could not be avoided.

But the result was good, right?
"That's true, but...

 Toya said with a smug look on his face, but it was true that the dried meat was delicious.
 It was good on its own, roasted lightly, or added to soup.
 It was well-received by my father, and he agreed to give some of it away in addition to the cost of the barrel, so we ended up getting quite a bit of money.

 Incidentally, Toya's evaluation of the first small amount of fatty pork was that it was not inedible, but tasted better without it.
 It was a good decision to remove the fat without cutting corners.

But it's Haruka who makes it so good, right? Why is Toya so proud of it?
I'm proud of you for deciding to make so much.
I'm proud of you for deciding to make so much. ...... Well, you did a great job with the meat, so that's good, right?

 It's a great way to make sure you're getting the most out of your money.

I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out, Haruka. I'm not sure what to say. I'm not sure if you've heard of it or not.
I'm not sure what to say.
I'm not sure. Level 1.
Well, you've been working hard. But you're the first one of us with this new skill.

 We've been training and working diligently for the past half month, and none of us have gained any new skills, or even increased our skill levels.

We've done a lot. I've been working with meat for dozens of hours.
But the fact that it took so long for the relatively easy [Dismantling] to reach level 1 ...... shows that reality is not so easy.
Oh! No, no, no, wait, wait. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.

 It's a skill that grew relatively quickly after I started using iron rods out of sheer desperation.
 I forgot about it because I've been using a sword lately.

"Oh! That's right, there it is, a new skill. I forgot about it because I never use it.

 He smiled carefree, but you should at least remember your own skills, Toya.

I'm sure you'll be able to find something to help you. I'm sure you're using a lot of things like [Searching for enemies]. ......
That's right. I've been training pretty hard, but I can't get my [spearmanship] up either.

 In the event that you're not sure what to do, you may want to check with your doctor.
 It's more convenient to use than at first, but the level itself has not changed.

It's not a waste of time, because the movement itself is getting better. It's not usually something you can see as a number, so don't worry too much about it.
...... I used to think that if I could visualize my status, I'd be able to get more out of my training, but I feel like the more I see, the more I'm told I'm not achieving anything.
"Oh, I've thought about that too. I wish there was an experience indicator for each skill, like in games!

 Oh, I really want that.
 Even when I'm practicing on my own, I'm often wondering if this is really a good idea.
 I'm sure it's not a waste of time, though, since it makes combat smoother than at first.

I think it's easier to think of it as 'skill levels almost never increase'.

 In general, skills are not recognized, so the maximum level is unknown, but the maximum level of magic in the grimoire is 10, so if you follow that, other skills should also be 10.
 In the case of magic, the number of people who can use level 10 magic is almost zero, and even if you devote your whole life to magic, you usually can't reach that level.

I think it's easy to get better when your level is low, but once you reach a certain level, you'll have to train hard for years to get there.
You mean I shouldn't expect results in half a month?
"You're stronger than you were at the beginning, so you're getting results, right? You're stronger than you were at the beginning, so you're getting results, and you don't have to worry if they aren't reflected in your status. That's what I meant.
"Well, you can just check your status once in a while. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do this, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it.

 It's a good idea to take a look at the website and see if there is anything you can do to help.

In the event that you're not sure what to do, you'll be able to find out by yourself.
I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one.
It's what the evil gods say. But in a way, it's good, isn't it? The less game-like it is, the less reckless it is.
Oh, yeah. If you can see the experience, you'll definitely want to gain it.
I agree! It's the nature of gamers.

 You can see the experience values, but you don't level?
 That's impossible.

There's no such thing as dying back in real life. Given your personalities, ...... should I thank the evil gods?
No, no, no, you wouldn't do that if your life depended on it.
Really? You're not going to say, "Let's hunt some more goblins because I'm almost at the next level! Really?

 I look at Toya.
 A meeting of eyes.
 Hearts connected.

"............ By the way! What are you going to do tomorrow?
You've gone off on a tangent, .......

 No, because!
 I can see myself or Toya saying that!
 If you're a gamer, you can't help but get greedy, right?
 I think this is an opinion that will probably be agreed upon by 90% of gamers.
 I'm just guessing.

Well, okay.

 I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what you want to do with it.

I'd like to leave the city tomorrow or in a few days.
