171-155 Crocodiles?

All right, I'll give the title of second class flag architect to Toya!


 Last time I raised the flag, it was me, but this time it's Toya.
 I made the title myself, so please accept it respectfully.

Did ...... come up?
"Brilliant. Fortunately, it doesn't seem to be as strong as Dahl's Bear.

What? Seriously, a new demon? No joke?
No joke. Well, I've been thinking about the possibility.

 Considering that Dahl's Bear had appeared, there was a possibility that the distribution of demons in this area was different from the area where Scarp Ape had been.

 With that in mind, it wouldn't be strange if a different kind of demon appeared.

 It's not strange, but it's not gratifying.

"Well, what the hell! It's never dull when there's something new. We're going to kill it, right?

Toya, take it easy. You don't look that strong. I don't think I'll mind. ......

 I looked at Haruka and the others as I said this, and they nodded, a little hesitantly.

I'm sure we'll run into each other soon anyway. I'm a little concerned about the blanks, though.

It's a good thing, too, because there are some zombie and ogre-like responses along the way. It'll help you get used to the idea.

 I'm sure you'll be able to find something that will help you get back into the swing of things.

That's right. So let's go that route, shall we?
"Right. I hope they're good enemies. Income wise.
Well, the stronger the enemy, the higher the cost of materials, so we can expect a little more.


 As usual, I don't want to get close to the zombies, so I have them easily dealt with by magic, and the ogre, after some fighting, is also easily killed.

 The ogre, which is said to be a powerful demon in Raffan's adventurer's guild, is not much of an opponent for us now if we only have one.

 Then we went to the enemy that responded to our search.

 There were four. We approached cautiously and found a crocodile-looking creature.
 About three meters long. Its girth was so thick that an adult could reach it with his hands.

 If you look at the "help" page, it's listed as a "killer gator", so I guess it's a relative of the alligator.

 Oh, and by the way, there's a "see through".

 I keep forgetting to use it. --I forgot to use it when I was using Dahl's Bear.

 Well, .......

 Race: Killer Gator
 Status: Healthy
 Skills: [Bite] [Poison Fang] [Water Magic

It has magic!

 It has magic!
 I mean, I can see quite a bit of information!

 The main reason why I usually tend to forget about the 【Insight】 is because it's almost useless when you're dealing with a demon for the first time.

 I'm not sure if it's a good idea to use it for the first time or for the second time.

 You can get a sense of its strength, but it's only as strong as the strength you can see with [Search Enemy], so it's almost useless to me, who basically uses [Search Enemy] while moving around.

 I'm not sure if it's because I'm not a fan of the idea, but I'm sure it's because I'm not a fan of the idea.

 With humans, I can get a good amount of information, but I guess that's because I have a base of knowledge.

 I'm not sure what to make of this.

 In the event that you have any questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site.

"Nao, what's wrong?

"No, I tried to do some "spotting", but I was surprised that I got more information than I expected. --Oh, your "see through" is now level 3.

 Is it possible that the increase in information is thanks to this?

"Well, ...... hasn't really changed for me. I'm still at level 2.

Level 2, huh? And that demon uses water magic, right?

I'm also curious about the ...... [Detection] skill, but it's the first magic-using demon.

Is the magic ...... strong?

I don't know that much about it. But the demon itself shouldn't be that bad, so I'd like to kill it before it uses magic if I can. Oh, and it's poisonous.

Hey! That's pretty important.

 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure I'm not the only one.
 I gave her a thumbs up and smiled.

It's okay. It's not a problem as long as you don't get bit by the poisonous fangs!

"That's true, but ...... hah. Well then, be careful not to get bit, and good luck.

 Yeah. In fact, as long as you're not careless, you should be fine.

 This time, the opening is from Haruka's bow.

 I've been practicing for a while now, so I'm going to use my "heavy weight" to attack.

 The arrows from Haruka's bow were no different than usual at first glance, but after they pierced the enemy, they were different.

"...... Wow, that's evil.

 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I think it's a good idea.

 As usual, Haruka's arrow pierced the killer gator's eye with a brilliant display of skill.

 At that moment, the eyeball exploded and the arrow went straight through and two-thirds of the way into the head.

 The killer gator's legs jerked for a moment.
 The creature stopped moving.

 At about the same time, Natsuki and Toya, who were flying out with arrows, attacked the two killer gators.

 Natsuki's attack sliced through the side of the killer gator, but it didn't stop it from breathing, and the gator went on a rampage, wagging its tail wildly, forcing Natsuki to take a few steps back.

 Natsuki was forced to retreat a few steps. Toya attacked the killer gator in the head, but it only made a rather dull sound, and the killer gator didn't seem to take much damage.

 But it was a bad move.

 It opened its mouth too wide. It's only a good target for Yuki.
 The "fireball" jumps into it.

 The killer gator suddenly closed its mouth, but it was already meaningless.

 The killer gator's belly swelled with a thud, and the killer gator shuddered, then stopped moving, blood dripping from the edge of its mouth.

There are only two left--!

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're doing.

 Toya dodges it in a panic.

 This is the first time I've ever seen such a thing.

You're moving too slow! Fire Arrow!

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're going to be doing.

 In the event that you have any questions regarding where by and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site.

That's it! Aim over there!

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

 They were moving so fast that Natsuki was having trouble attacking them, but I attacked the one that was safe, and they both went on a rampage.

 I attacked the safe one, too, and the two went on a rampage together, forcing Toya to retreat and watch.

"Sorry. But that one's going to die sooner or later, that one.

 Natsuki's attack had torn open the belly between his front and back legs, and every time he flailed, more and more stuff came out. Blood and guts and all that. ....... Yeah, it's gross.

 On the other hand, the one I attacked is bleeding profusely, but because the hole is small, it hasn't reached the point where its internal organs spill out.

It's hard to attack!
Even so. ......

 Well, Toya's weapon is not a long one, so I can understand.

 I moved to Toya's side and held up my spear to poke the killer gator.
 The upper armor is fine, but once you avoid it, the skin is not so hard.

 After a few attacks, the killer gator's movements gradually slowed down and eventually stopped moving.

"Hmm. The other one is ...... wow!

 The killer gator was already dead, after all, but its body had been cut in half at the tail.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're doing.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

How well did you cut it?

Yes. It was a little hard, but once you let the magic flow through it, it was fine. Nao-kun took care of that.

 It seems that the reason why he was unable to attack was because the two animals were in close proximity.

 Indeed, the tail of the killer gator was quite thick, and if struck with it, it could break your bones.

 The hesitation to approach is understandable.

I'm not sure what to do.

 There is one that seems to have been mangled by Yuki's fireball, one that I punctured with my fire arrow and speared repeatedly, and one that had its side slashed wide open and its tail severed.

 Neither of these corpses were very pretty.
 In contrast, the one I killed with Haruka's bow was almost undamaged.
 One of its eyeballs was missing, but that was all.

"To be honest, it went better than I expected," he said. Alligators have small brains, and I didn't think a headshot would be enough to take them out. ......

Is that so?

Yeah. It's only the size of a cookie. So I wasn't really expecting it to destroy my brain from the eye socket like an orc would.

That's because they're demons. ...... I'm sure you'll find out when you dismantle them.

Yeah. Well, let's get rid of it for now.


 It's a big demon, but it's not much bigger than Dahl's Bear.

 Toya and I picked it up and threw it into our magic bag.

By the way, is there a Killer Gator on there?

"Well, there's ....... The most popular is the skin. The skin is the most popular part. The meat is light, flavorless, and easy to eat. The standard price is 11,000R for the magic stone, 48,000R for the skin and 15,000R for the meat.

...... What? Isn't that a lot better than an ogre?

 The information Toya read from the Beast and Demon Demolition Reader was unexpectedly good.

 In the case of the ogre, 10,000 magic stones and 40,000 skins. Meat cannot be sold.

 Aside from the magic stones, I know that the purchase price of a demon as a whole depends on whether or not it has a use, which is a separate issue from its strength, but it's a bit complicated to make 1.5 times as much money as an ogre with that kind of strength.

 If you ask me which one is stronger, I'm almost certain it's the ogre. .......

I'm not sure if the killer gator is stronger overall, looking at the purchase price of the magic stone alone, let alone the other parts.

"How about it? I've been using magic for a while now, and maybe that's why my magic stones are worth more?

The magic ...... was quite powerful, wasn't it?

 If you look at the area where the magic hit, you'll see that the ...... ground has been gouged about three meters and five centimeters deep.

Is this a water jet?

I don't have any other magic, but it wouldn't be this powerful if I used it normally, would it?

No. Normally, it would stagger you if it hit you at close range.

It's like a fire hose. If you're in an unsteady position, you might get blown away.

If you're able to find out the magic level of a demon with your Sightings, it's best not to take it for granted.

That's right. We can also use magic that is not in the grimoire.

 This is especially dangerous in the case of demons, because they seem to specialize in one thing.

But it's nice to find a demon that can make money.

That's for sure! Four of them, that's almost 300 ...... gold coins!

Hopefully. I don't know, the skin's scratched and all.

Oh, there you have it. Well, even if it goes down a little, it's still a lot of money.

 If you include the demons you hunted along the way, you will surely earn more than 300 gold coins.

 That's an unbelievable amount of money for one day.

 If I keep hunting at this pace, my annual income will be at the level of 100 million yen or so.

"Okay, okay! I'm getting motivated! Let's keep up the good work!

 As Toya thrusts his arms up in the air with joy, we continue to hunt until rather late that day, and in total we obtained nearly 1,000 gold coins and magic stones.
