236-212 I want to eat ice cream

"Wow, brilliant. Is he dead?

 Toya whacks Strike Ox with the belly of his sword.

Oh, he's dead. ......

 The first "snap" was enough to make Strike Ox disappear from the search results.

 It was much easier than expected.

"Hmmm, never let a mistake go unpunished. That's Yugi Shito.

 It's been a while since I've heard your full name.

 It's great to be ambitious, it's great to be effective, but ...... what's this feeling? I feel a strange emptiness. I'm sure there's nothing wrong with the method.

It's been a long time since you've done that, hasn't it?

It's been a while since I've seen you do that," he said, "because there aren't many enemies who'll run straight into you, and it's hard to see your feet in the woods.

 You can't see what's underneath your feet in the woods." Yuki shrugged at Toya's curious look.

 It's true that the timing of this spell is important, and if the battle turns violent, you can't use it poorly.

 You can't use it if you're in the middle of a melee and you're in danger of getting your foot caught in a hollow.

There's also pitfalls in earth magic, right? What about that one?

"That's basically a hole that a person can fall into. If you want to get your foot caught in a pit, "Ground Control" is more suitable. You have to practice, though, because it's slower.

 Basically, when you use "Ground Control" to manipulate the soil, the soil moves like "zzzzz".

 On the other hand, when you use "Pitfall", the hole will open up with a pop.

 The latter consumes far more magic power, so it is not wrong to use the former if you just want to roll.

 However, it will take a lot of practice to make a well-timed step under the feet of an enemy running at high speed.

"Well, it's good that you were able to kill him easily.
"That's true. It's going to be tough to catch something this big and that fast, isn't it?
Of course. Even Toya would be blown away by the weight difference.

 You can either fight while avoiding it or use magic to deal with it.

 You can't be fooled by its weight and inertia.

Toya, what are the details of this creature?

I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you. It says something about 'if you do it right, you can milk it.' I thought an ox was a bull.

It's often used in that sense, but it wasn't originally limited to bulls.

 Originally, the term ox was used to refer to all larger members of the bovine family, including buffaloes.

 Well, the name doesn't matter, the question now is: "Milk?

"Milk, ......, that's a bull.

 I rolled the dead body of the striking ox, hoping for a little milk, but unfortunately, it had a p*n*s on it.

No, not if it's dead in the first place, apparently. It says here that it's essential to capture them alive and squeeze them well, as they'll be too tasteless to drink after death.

That's ...... pretty absurd, isn't it?

 I'm sure you'll be able to find a lot of people who'll be able to help you out. But when you're dealing with a demon, it's like, 'How impossible can it be?

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

 I'm not sure what to make of it.

That's why they can be sold at a high price.

 That's true.

 This time he died easily, but his strength is still (probably) Orc level.

 Considering that there are almost no adventurers in the town of Raffan who can kill an orc by themselves, you can imagine how difficult it would be to capture it alive and milk it leisurely.

But I do want milk, whether I can sell it or not. You can get cheese and butter, but you can't get raw milk.

"If we could get raw milk, we could cook more and make sweets! I want fresh cream! Fresh pastries! Fresh pastries!

Fresh pastries are very tempting, indeed. We didn't have milk, so we were limited to other sweets.

You know, buns are also raw sweets. ......?

 Natsuki's words were denied by Yuki, who pointed out modestly.

I'm not sure what to say. A high school girl's fresh pastry should be fresh cream!

 Yuki's statement may be a bit prejudiced, but I can't deny that the image of fresh sweets is fresh cream.

 By the way, Natsuki says that most of the wagashi we usually eat are raw confectioneries, because they are raw confectioneries as opposed to dried confectioneries.

 I've heard that dried confectioneries are Rakugan (wild goose) and Sembei (rice cracker), but I almost never have a chance to eat Rakugan, and even if you call Sembei a Japanese confectionery, my feeling would be, "Japanese confectionery? I don't have a chance to eat Rakugan.

I've never had a chance to eat Rakugan, but I've never had a chance to eat Rakugan. It's a cheap image.

"The expensive rice crackers are quite expensive, you know. They cost several hundred yen a piece.

Seriously? I understand that it takes a lot of time and effort, but ...... if I have to pay that price, I would rather buy a cake or a donut.

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

 And I agree with him.

 I'd rather eat a doughnut than a rice cracker, and sometimes a cake is good too.

 And ice cream would be nice this time of year.

By the way, when you get some raw milk, can you make some ice cream?

"Ice cream ...... sounds good. I haven't found vanilla, but I'm sure green tea would be fine.

That's a good idea! I'm tired of shaved ice!

 I asked Tommy to make the shaved ice machine for me, but unfortunately I couldn't get any suitable fruit, so I just used molasses-like syrup made from sugar.

 I can't deny that I'm getting tired of it, just like Toya said.

Now if I can just get some raw milk, I can teach Aella how to make fresh pastries!

"Yes. When I told her about it before, she didn't really understand it. You have to have the real thing.

It's hard to explain whipped cream to someone.

 Explaining whipped cream.

 It's white, soft, sweet, and melty.

 It's not wrong, but I don't think it's enough to describe whipped cream.

 There is also a way to muddle the waters by telling them about fresh sweets such as buns, as Natsuki said, but I don't think that's quite right.

"By the way, I've been thinking for a while that the 'whip' sold in supermarkets is not really whipped, is it?

"Yes. No matter how you look at it, it's pre-whipped.

"Hmm? What do you mean?

 I've seen Haruka make cakes before, so I immediately thought of what Yuki was saying, but Toya didn't quite get it.

No, there's a cheaper alternative to whipped cream that's made with vegetable fat, but it's usually called 'whipped'. The name of the product is usually 'whipped', even though it's a whipped liquid.

...... So it's like naming a product after an ingredient? It's like selling ground meat with the name 'hamburger' on it?

Well, if you whip it with sugar, it becomes whipped cream, so it's closer than a hamburger, but that's about it.

 Haruka laughed and nodded at Toya's subtle analogy.

 Haruka laughed and nodded at Toya's subtle analogy. "If you write 'hamburger' on minced meat, I'm sure you'll get a complaint, but if you write 'whip', it's allowed.

I wonder what the names are like in other countries. I wonder what kind of names are used in other countries? I'm sure they don't just use the same name.

"Product names like 'whisking' and 'stirring'? That's novel.

 It may be innovative and interesting, but I wonder if it will sell.

But if we can milk it well, we can use fresh cream as much as we want. ...... My dream is expanding. Fresh cream is so expensive when you buy it.

 I want to eat ice cream too.

 I'm willing to help because I want to eat ice cream too, but it's not going to be easy to actually squeeze it.

That's why they sell 'whip'. But the problem is how to catch them alive, right?

"Yeah. You can't just kill them on sight like you're doing now because you have to confirm their gender first.

Ugh! I thought I had a chance to use it, but now I'm suddenly useless? My magic.

You want milk, right?

That's right, but... Nao, can't you find out the s*x of the girl before she gets too close?

That's a tough one, isn't it? How can you tell if it's male or female?

 A lion can be easily identified from a distance, but a cow's s*x is ...... difficult to distinguish from a distance.

 You can tell from a distance if the udder is as big as Holstein's, but what about Strike Ox?

 And you can't see the area well from the front.

I'm sure it's fine. If you can't see it before it rushes, you can just avoid it. Besides, Strike Ox has some pretty cool stuff, right?

"...... Well, yeah, right?

 Toya pointed to what I judged to be a bull.

 I'm not sure what to make of it.

 ...... I wonder how big he'll be when he's healthy?

I'm not sure. It's a s*xual harassment!

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

I'm sure you're not the only one. Except for the presence or absence of this, or the presence or absence of breasts.

 Professionals may be able to tell them apart by other methods, but I don't know of any.

 Some animals can be s*xed by the presence or absence of horns, but cows have horns on both sides, and this strike ox is probably the same.

First of all, the orcs, they don't mind cutting them off when they're dismembering them.

They'll come at you with a buzzing sound. If you stand right in front of them, you can see them.

 I know you're talking to a demon, but I'm asking you to hold back.

"That's true, but... Natsuki, Nao and the others are terrible.

Yes, yes. Don't worry about it, Yuki. Let's put that away.

 He then threw the dead body of Strike Ox into his magic bag. He threw the dead body of Strike Ox into his magic bag.

 He must have weighed about 500 kilos, but Natsuki's muscle strength has improved considerably.
