39-034 Survival rate

"The real question is, how many of your classmates do you think are still alive?

"It's hard to tell if you change the species. As far as we know, four or five people died in LaFang after using [Skill Robbery].

"In Sarstat, it's three? This is probably accurate. Because I heard the story at the tavern.

 It's not a big town, so if three suspicious deaths occurred on the same day, there would have been a certain amount of rumors.

"You heard it from Tommy, too. Was it Tanaka and Takahashi? They're definitely dead.
Definitely dead? And Tommy?
Yeah, Tommy means Wakabayashi.

 Yuki was curious, but I told her what Tommy had told me.
 The situation made Yuki, who hadn't taken any help, turn pale, saying, 'Mine skills, really scary.

I can't ...... imagine Wakabayashi-kun being a dwarf.
Oh, we didn't even notice until you mentioned it.
We didn't even notice until you told us. Your tone of voice hadn't changed, so it didn't feel right.

 I'd like you to speak like an old man if you can.
 Well, I suppose this is prejudice in a sense.
 I'm sure there are children and young people among the dwarves, so they can't all be old men.

We didn't get to know any of our classmates after all, but Haruka and the others, only Wakabayashi?
There was that guy, Umien.
...... Oh, yeah, there was that guy, too.

 Haruka frowns a little, as if remembering that time.

I'm not sure what's wrong. You seem to be in a bad mood.
No, it's because Umezono picked a fight with Haruka.

 I'll tell them what happened.
 I'll tell them what happened. He didn't have to go to all the trouble to become Haruka's enemy.

"Wow, Ume-sono-san, you're a challenger! You're too reckless to fight Haruka head-on!
"Yuki, what are you talking about? You make it sound like I'm a scary person.

 Haruka smiles, but the smile on her face is a little scary.

No, we don't think so, but do any of your classmates fight with Haruka to her face?

No, I don't. I don't think so. That's the smart way to get by.

 Natsuki and Yuki nodded to each other, "Yes, yes.
 No boy would be stupid enough to pick a fight with Haruka.
 The risk of being disliked not only by Haruka but by most of the other girls is too high.
 How many boys at school think that they don't care if girls don't like them?

Oh, my God! I'm clearly the victim here! --"Look at it objectively.

 I'm not sure if you've ever heard of this, but I'm sure you have.
 The fake tone of voice ruins it all, though.

"Well, it doesn't matter. She's not a threat.

 That's it.
 Isn't that the strength and fear of Haruka?
 Well, I guess it's thanks to that "strength" that we've been able to survive relatively peacefully.

"Classmates, even if we only know, 25% of them are dead. Too many people are being careless, aren't they?
And what do you think about Haruka's statement, Toya?

 I said, "What do you think, Toya?

Haruka is in the minority. With a character makeup full of mines, a 25% mortality rate is still low.
I guess I agree with you.

 I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not.

That's right. I'm not sure what to make of that. I'm not proud of it, but I'm confident that if it were just me, I could have taken on the goblins in a few days!

I agree. I'm not sure I'd have chosen a cheating skill if I'd been on the edge.

 I'm sure you'll be able to find something that will help you.

That's right! If there were that many attractive skills, I would have taken it!
As expected of someone who has taken [Skill Copy], you have a different point of view.

 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.

You can't say that again~. I'm regretting it.
"No, no, I think it's beneficial in the current situation. You can learn from all of us.
"Of course!

 Yuki nodded happily as she regained her composure, but Haruka interrupted her again.

But if you don't decide which of them you want to develop, you'll end up with poor dexterity. It's hard to train.
That's right. ......

But really, if we could use even half of the skills we have, even level one would be awesome, right?
Yeah, I'll do my best! Good luck, everyone!

You can teach us, but it'll be tough. We spend a few hours every day training, you know.

"Oh, so you're putting in that much effort? Well, of course we do. There's no way we can achieve anything without working hard.

 The three of them, Haruka, Yuki and Natsuki, are not geniuses in terms of appearance, but they are geniuses in terms of study.
 They study diligently and participate in practices during school events such as ball games.
 I'm sure I'm blessed to a certain extent that I'm able to achieve good results.

I'm physically stronger here, so I have to work harder.

 In the original world, Natsuki's athleticism wasn't bad, but her physical strength was a bit inferior.
 She sometimes missed school.
 Yuki, on the other hand, was very energetic.
 She was the best of the three in terms of physical strength.
 In the middle was Haruka, who was as good as Yuki in terms of her ability.
 If you look at the girls as a whole, they are probably both at the top.

But how many of them actually took [Help]?

"Girls don't play the game much, so I think they're more likely to get [help]. In fact, Natsuki took it, right? And there was advice that there were no cheats, so some people believed it and avoided dangerous skills, right?

 I'm sure you'll be able to get by without becoming an adventurer. .......

I don't know about that. If you're a girl, you might want to choose something like [heroine qualities], [charm], or [attractive appearance] if you're on the edge of your points.

I'm not sure if I'd be able to do that, but I'm sure I'd be able to do it. If you're not a stickler like Toya or Tommy.

 If you don't think too much about it, it's a very advantageous skill.
 I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one who's had a bit of trouble with the whole thing.

I'm not sure if you've heard of this, but I'm sure you've heard of it.
I want a wife with beast ears!
"...... I see.

 Yuki and Natsuki nodded quietly at Toya's powerful declaration.
 I don't know what's going through your mind, but I'm not going to tell you.
 It's okay, right?
 "You're an idiot! It's okay to say, "Idiot!
 --No, it would have been better if I hadn't, because it would have started Toya's chemo talk.

But it's good that the world doesn't have cheats. But it's a good thing that the world doesn't have cheats, because if those skills were rampant without any mines, it would have been a problem for the people of this world. It would have made life difficult for us, too.

"Well, you know. "Well, I guess so, with all the cheetos fighting each other and the harem guys and the reverse harem and all that.
Yeah, yeah. We, the little people, just need to live in peace.

"Little people. ......?
"Haruka is ......?

 The question spilled out of our mouths when we heard the unexpected words.

"What? You have to be careful not to stand out, don't do dangerous jobs, work hard and save money. You see, for all intents and purposes, I'm a small citizen.

 Haruka says this while pointing her fingers one by one, but we look at each other with subtle expressions.

We looked at each other delicately. "You're right, if you ask me that much, you're a petty bourgeois. But why?
"I think it's the image. Haruka has leadership qualities.
He's also a man of action. If he keeps growing, he'll start his own business or something.
Yeah, that's exactly what I'm thinking! A female entrepreneur!

 We nodded our heads to Yuki's words.
 I can't imagine a future where I go to college, find a job, and become an office worker.

Is that a compliment? Well, okay. I don't know how many of you are still alive, but don't you dare look for them or get involved with them. Or is there someone else you'd like to find?

I don't. This is the only group I can trust.

I don't know. I don't know if I'd trust them if I was going out with them, but I wouldn't trust them if my life depended on it. ......

I think we've said that before, but no.
Yeah. I'm sure you've heard of it.

 Mine skills, however, you don't have.
 If you have them, you should actively run away.
 My proposal was unanimously approved.
