Chapter 14 I am a Genius is what Everyone Said!

TL: Yuki link


「「Ojii-chan, what is with all that noise! What are making a racket about… 」」


The twin beautiful girls came out while saying exactly the same thing.

Seeing them like this makes me convinced, they are twins after all.

Like yesterday, Rinne-chan came out again with her hugging plushy in her hands.

Chapter 13 Special Skill Development!

TL: Yuki link


Hello! I tried calling out nearby monsters by only thinking about it and then it came! A Goblin.


By the way, I have been practicing magic with Rommon-chan, so I tried to think a little about how magic works… that is MP.


I tried to be conscious of that MP  I have and imagine that I can freely manipulate it.


While thinking of ways, I thought of collecting and releasing in from my mind, like in the case of 『Pair』 where I collect it on my palm, and then releasing it while thinking of the effects of 『Pair』 and the skill would manifest.

Theoretically attack and defense magic should work in the same principle.


In other words, MP can be converted into anything, be it attack or defense depending on how you thought about it and properly execute it.

Then if I think about ways to attack, then I could probably use MP directly for attacking.


Gripping my fist, I then enclose it with MP like that of pasta swirl in a fork, and then making that MP burst like a liquid splashing from a container that broke and make that image manifest and burst out.

Like this… or like this… or like this!


_____Doo! [TL:It’s not an explosion sound but like saian aura]


And so, my fist was wrapped in something like a light blue aura and I noticed that a low reverberation sound was coming from it.


Hooray! It’s a success!

I was expecting something else would happen but, this was much better than expected.


【You have learned 『Magic Flow Control』】

【Action Super Bonus! All Stats will be easier to increase dramatically】


Alright! So it was recognized as a skill, then time to hit that goblin that is approaching with this fist!

Huh? Goblin stopped approaching?

Well, anyone would realize that someone in front of them isn’t a common enemy if it suddenly begins to glow in a blue aura.


While startled, I quickly approached the goblin and hitting it with a right straight, with my fist wrapped in mana.



The Goblin blew off and crashed into a tree tremendously.

It seems that it also finished it off because I received XP.


I checked the place where the goblin crashed with my lamp and it was a total disaster.

Internal organs splattered and blood flows out of its mouth like a waterfall.


Seeing this result isn’t this a little too much for damage?

It can may be used in the future if needed, it’s MP consumption also is too high but may decrease in the future. It was the first time for me to use something that burned 20 MP out of you know.


I’m currently just a Toon Golem, what would happen when I evolve… It would probably hilarious if can generate a crater like those from anime’s and cartoons.

Although this would be considered as a big achievement, but I still haven’t finished with my experiments yet.

I search again for new prey while thinking of things I would like to try also continue sending provocative waves from the surroundings.


And found the next target, well it’s just another Goblin.


Next in line for testing is to try imbuing weapons with magic power, I will first try it with my knife.


By doing the same image as I did with my fist, I was able to control the flow of magical energy and then slowly wrap it around my knife.

I also spent 20 MP when using it.

It is evidence that I have properly grasped it.


I quickly delivered a slash on the goblin’s neck, as a result it seems that it’s durability and attack power have risen considerably.


Good, that means it can also affect weapons and…



Let’s do some more experiments with magic power.

The next experiment would be to just let magic power fly out like those in anime.


I also made use of another Goblin as test subject.

I fire a magic wave from my fist which consumes 5 MP and giving it an image of my strike hitting its target which is the goblin that was away from my position and was heading towards me.


Something like a fist size magical energy flew out and hit the goblin making faint as it hit its chin.


Then I tried using the knife again covering it in magic energy and sliced sideways.

The magic wave took the form of a sickle blade… and yes it flew towards the goblin hitting it.

That also seemed to finish it off.


【You have Learned Magic Wave! 】

【You have Learned Magic Burst! 】

【Action Bonus! All Stats will be easier to increase considerably! 】


Oh, it seems that it was also recognized as a skill.

But then again, it gave another stat boosting improvement.

Is it because I developed it myself?


It is good since I still have a lot of things to do.

For now I’m meditating in order to recover my MP.


Then I found again another goblin. This time I used magic power from my fist to compress at one point, and then I used the image of an explosion so that the condensed energy burst out all at once.


When that condensed mass of magic power that I sent with my fist hits the goblin, the mass glowed brightly for a bit and then… Boom! it exploded just as I have expected.


【Mastery, Magic Explosion】

【Action Bonus! All Stats will be easier to increase! 】


That’s a good one being able to blow away a goblin and was also recognized as a skill. The goblins was blown away along with my arms… this skill, I should consider the time and place to use this.


It cannot be helped. I absorbed from soil from the ground and regrow it.

With this logic, if I collect magic power and compress it in the center of my body and detonate it, by exploding I can definitely harm everyone from my surroundings.

Well, suicide bomber would be a very last resort though.


On another note, increasing the amount of MP compressed also increases its area of effect and firepower.


A few minutes later after regenerating my arm, I picked up the club that the goblin was using.


And then I encountered a Centipie.

I gathered magic power again the same as before but this time I used the goblin’s club as a point of compression.


And then hit the Centepie with the tip of the club…

The tip of the club glows the same way as before and explodes, instantly killing the Centepie in it’s point of contact.


The result is that, if you use a tool or substitute to initiate the skill, there is a high chance it will break the tool, but the damage you receive would be minimal to none… and so on.


In conclusion, magic explosion is quite a useful skill.

For example, you can simply use stones and throw it packed with compressed explosive magic and turn them into grenades.

This ended up into something more useful than I have thought.


Well then, let’s try out the last few experiments for now.


This time it will be a combination of skills which is mixing 『Magic Flow Control』 and 『Magic Explosion』!


The timing is also good because I found another Centipie.

This time while coating myself in magic energy, I used Magic explosion once more.

And as a result, the damage of the explosion against me was greatly mitigated.


And then, I tried putting in 『Magic Explosion』 on 『Magic Wave』.


When I tested it out, it resulted in a huge success!


Before flying, like using on a tool before, I tried adding the 『Magic Explosion』 to the wave that flow out from me. The result was as I have imagined where the place the magic wave hits exploded.

Moreover it was also recognized as a new skill name 『Magic Wave Bomb』 and because it was self-invented it gave again stat improvements.


Then lastly I used it with the wave used from the knife, then after penetrating its target the magic wave exploded it was also recognized as 『Magic Slash Explosion』.


… That should conclude all my experiments so far.

Let’s end the experiments at this for today.


A lot of skills have been learned.

It may also be good to tell Rinne-chan about magic flow.

And thanks to 『Magic Bombs』 seriously, I’m confident that in the case I encounter a higher rank mob, I would be able to fight back.


My level has also increased to level 9.

The amount of stats I have gained when leveled from 8 was a ridiculous amount.

This amount of increase on stats certainly does not belong to a mob of the lowest rank…


Just one more level and I might be able to evolve.

For now I have to search for more prey and quickly raise my levels.


I keep selling out fights and beat them one by one.

On the way, I also learned 『Detection』 and 『Provocation』 which greatly increased my pace of hunting monsters.


And finally Level 10!


And passed it turning 11… and again… and again…


Are?… Why… did I not evolve?

How do you evolve to subspecies anyway?

Are?… Why?…

Oh, well, I’ll just have to ask Ojii-san when I come back.


I became a bit irritated and hit a hiding monster in one shot… and so my level reached 12.


Let’s check my status for now.




Iris (Toon golem)



HP: 135/135

MP: 114/114

Attack: 170

Magical Power: 111

Defense: 161

Dexterity: 137

Speed: 140


Special skill: [Telepathy] [Provoke] [Detection] [Magic Flow Control]

[Magic Suicide] [Magic Wave] [Magic Explosion]

[Magic Burst Edge] [Magic Blast]

Magic: [Pair] [Offensive] [Deep]






Then, when I checked out the pocket watch the was borrowed from Ojii-san, It was already 6:00 in the morning.

I went back home a little irritated because I wasn’t able to evolve.


When I entered the house, Ojii-san was already awake and was drinking tea.

So Ojii-san wakes up as early as possible.


「Oh, How are you… So, were you not able to evolve? 」

【Yes, I’m fine, my level have reached 12 but I was not able to evolve. 】

「Wha…What, really…」


That being said, he showed a great smile.

Why are you so glad about that?

Even though I was really down about it.




Wha… What!!!


「You can become a Transcendent Species!!」

【Eh? What is that? 】


「You see, it a subspecies which is even high than normal subspecies, with this you will definitely evolve into a transcendental species! So surprising! For the first partner of my grandchild to be a transcendental species! Only 3 of them have been recorded and not even the type that was raised, I have not seen of any being evolved! It will be a great day for a celebration today! 」


From a subspecies… I could evolve into something better?

In other words, I have more talent than just that of a genius…

As I ‘m still trying to grasp the reality, I’m fantasizing of evolving into a humanoid beautiful girl, or a good looking handsome boy but would you really call that a genius?

I can’t let myself die anymore.

Chapter 12 Subspecies Evolution… What is it?

TL: Yuki link




【What is subspecies evolution? 】


I asked wolk jii-sama the meaning of that unknown term.


「Well it is subspecies evolution as it meant… Well I guess I have to explain about subspecies first.」

【Please do so】

「Alright, well subspecies represents an evolution train which is stronger than its original counterpart, for example a goblin, even under the same category if the other one is considered a subspecies it will definitely be much stronger than normal, although the ranks wouldn’t really change that much it will have skills that are not found on normal ones and some even acquire some kind of unique or special skill」


I see, so that’s what subspecies are?

I might meet some in the future.

It might be good to consider that they may be a strong enemy.


But could I also be on the path of being one? I wonder if that’s a good thing.


「And another note, for and ordinary monster to evolve into a subspecies, all subsequent evolution will be much stronger than the previous subspecies evolution」


Really? That’s lucky then?

With this, in my golem life could it be considered a winner?


Alright, I’m quite lucky I suppose, to be evolving from a subspecies variant from an early stage.

「Let’s see, If I am right, the level needed for evolution should have been increased, Iris-chan needs to be level 10, you can earn just about enough experience if it’s just from the demons that appear in surrounding the forest 」


It is probably good to do some leveling in the forest while everyone is asleep.

Should I hunt the surrounding goblins then?


【Thank you, And also, I’m thinking of going out hunting during the night when everyone is asleep starting from today.】

「Alright, doing so would also reduce the issues with demons that comes from the forest… Oh and also could you take some parts of the demons when you return home, we will teach you what parts you have to collect and will also lend you something to put them into along with a lamp」


Parts of demons, you mean something like gathering and such things?


【Why do you gather demon parts? 】

「It will be exchanged for money…」

【Ah, ok, got it】

So it was exchanged for money huh…

I have to harvest them then, the parts to be gathered for goblins are ears and nose.

Money is important after all.


「Oh and there’s one more thing I forgot.」

【What is it? 】

「As for Rommon, being her contracted demon, even if she is not around, one third of the experience you get will still be given to her.」

【Alright, I’ll keep that in mind.】


So experience value is also sent to Rommon-chan.

I see, got it. I will definitely kill a lot of demons!


I have finished all other things so I would like to be able to practice 『Repair』 soon.


【Then for now I, I would like to practice how to use 『Repair』 soon Rommon-sama】

「Ah, yes let’s do it」


I go along with Rommon-sama and were practicing together.


It was nice to practice together with her, but regretfully we were not able to learn repair today.


Instead of that, magic called 『Offense』 that is used for improving offensive magic attacks and 『Defense』 which is also for improving magic defense have been learned, magic power and mp increase have also been improved.


Rommon-chan said that I’m a genius, but I don’t usually remember things that easily.


Besides although the mechanism regarding the flow of magical power is within my grasp, for me it is more like a sensation closer to blood flow as I would describe it.

It can also be shaped freely by your own desire.


So with tonight being arranged as my leveling time, I would like to do some experiments in applying the concepts of manipulating the flow of magical power and its mechanisms.

Perhaps it might be possible for me to develop and master good techniques.


「Everyone, Dinner time!!」


Rinne-chan who was back from training and was standing near the dining area finished preparing dinner and called over Rommon-chan and Jii-san.


「I guess, that will be all for today.」

【Hai! 】


I also meditated during dinnertime this time. Meditating has been my norm for dinner now.

My status have also improved while doing so.

I feel like its getting better and better as I keep on meditating though, I wonder why?

Was it because it’s an effective training for clearing up the mind?

Maybe that’s how it is…


「「Thanks for the meal!!」」

「Fast as ever…」



Certainly, that was really fast.

They seem to have finished eating so I also stopped my meditation.


「Ne, ne, Iris-chan, would you like to sleep with me today? 」


Certainly, it’s a request coming from a beautiful girl. But I’ll pass on it because I have something to do today.


【I’m sorry, I have something I wanted to do today… and won’t probably be back until tomorrow morning. 】

「Well you, I would like to bath and go to sleep together! But would it be alright to do that tomorrow? 」


Seeing your face which looks regretful is also cute.

So Rinne-chan also want to sleep with me?

Me who is more like a hardened lump of soil? I understand in Rommon-chan’s case because she is my partner but, why would Rinne-chan want to?


【Yes, if this me is good enough… but why? 】

「Because Iris-chan is cute!!」


Well, certainly, because I look like a 「Baby Golem」 maybe it’s also cute. I guess there is no choice but to do that, tomorrow I’ll be sleeping with her.


【Wolk-san, can you lend me those tools now? 】

「Ok, just a bit, I’ll go prepare it. 」


What he brought out was a green bag, a lamp that looks like a camping lamp, paper and a clock. Written on the paper are parts of monsters that I need to keep as request by Wolk-Ojiisan.


I also went to take my goblin club and a knife was also added.

To be exact, it is already know by Wolk-ojiisan that I am good at using weapons when exterminating demons.


「Take care!!」

「Don ‘t overwork yourself!!」

【Hai, I’ll be leaving then.】

I went outside of the house.

This is the first time for me to go solo in a while since I’ve been taken care of by this family.


Let’s do our best earning money… Let’s go on an adventure to raise level at the same time practice magic and training.


Is it okay for me to return around 6:00 in the morning?

While thinking so, I entered the forest.



◆ ◆ ◆




10 minutes after I started walking inside the forest, the first thing I met was a Centipie.

I am planning a lot of things to try out with this centipie.


Punching once…




While half dead use 『Pair』.




Then hit again and half kill it…




And then recover and hit it again and finish it off.


I repeat it about five times until my MP ran out.

[TL:The Poor Thing…]

I took this cruel act because I thought that if you use it practically, you can easily improve your magic and also improve acquisition rate.

I am not reflecting on it.


【Defeated Centipie! Acquired experience 7】

【Behavioural Bonus! Magic power increase have been improved】


I try to provoke nearby monsters without thinking about it, capture it, then finish it off.

I repeated doing that action for about ten more times, and then as I expected.

My level rose to 8.



Iris (Toon Golem)

Lv. 8


HP: 50/50

MP: 23/23

Attack: 70

Magical power: 21

Defense: 62

Dexterity: 36

Speed: 38


Special skill: [Telepathic Communication]

Magic: [Pair] [Offense] [Defense]




My MP and magic power have increased a lot.


It seems that my meditation and training with Rinne-chan produced a terrific effect.


I’m expecting a lot when I evolve.



Well then, after examining my level and confirming things, time to try out some more stuff.

Chapter 11 Time for Special Training

TL: Yuki link



I woke up.

Or more like my consciousness returned.

It seems that morning has arrived, looks like I was able to sleep properly.

I guess shutting down my consciousness was the right thing to do if I want to go to bed.

I can sleep without the desire to do so.


…And there’s a beautiful girl sleeping next to me.

Last night I managed to go to bed along without crushing her or something.

Even though it’s only during bedtime, I’m worried that I might accidentally fracture Rommon-chan’s thin looking fingers.


But still, her sleeping face looks so cute, it makes you want to nibble her.


「Nnn… …uun … Iris-chan? Ohayo」


Oh, Rommon-chan seems to have already woken up.

Her looks just as she woke up is also cute.


【Ohayo, Rommon-sama, It’s a nice morning were having】

「Nn… … … …! That’s how it feels! It is nice! 」



And then as Rommon-chan got out of bed and went downstairs, I also followed along with her.

After walking for a bit, we finally reached the living room.


「Ohayo Rommon, Iris-chan, Rommon, breakfast is ready, you can have it now. 」

「Unn, Got it」


After saying so we she then went towards the table and took a seat.




A little while after Rinne-chan came down while hugging a stuffed bear.

Eh, what’s this isn’t that really cute.


「That, Rinne, you’re carrying a bear again」

「Ah! You’re right I’ll be back after I return it. 」


Rinne-chan returned to her room while making loud footsteps on along the way.


A girl aiming to be a warrior while holding a cute stuffed bear, so cute, is this what they call gap moe?


Ah I have seen a lot of good things and it’s just in the morning, it’s a healing scene.

「Ehem, Then again Ohayo! 」

「Ohayo Onee-chan 」

「Ohayo Rinne and then 」

【Shaaa… Ohayo’ndazo】

【Ohayo, Rinne-chan】

【Ohayogozaimasu, Rinne-sama】


Kel and Ghana also got up and joined in.

It seems that everyone is here now.


「Well then everyone, let’s have a meal.」

「I’ll help serving it.」


Everyone then started.

On the other hand, I’m here too starting my meditation. I will just endure it even if I have appetite.


【Activity Bonus! MP and Magic Power will be easier to improve! 】


Oh, Thanks for the upgrade.

Will it improve every time I do this?

If that is so, then every time everyone eats I have to meditate.


「「Thanks for the meal!」」

「As always, the two of you finishes quickly.」


Oh, it seems that the two of them have finished eating.

Like their grandpa’s reaction, I also felt that they were really fast.

It’s probably time to stop meditating with this as the signal.


「Yosh! Iris-chan, help me again with training! 」


And so, Rinne called out to me.

Then I stood up in response to her.


【Yes, but it would depend on today’s…】

「Ah, wait a minute! 」

「【Nn??】 」


Rommon-chan stopped us from going out.


「Because I want to study magic with Iris, can’t you just do that in the afternoon? 」

「It’s Okay, but can Iris-chan use magic? I have never heard of a golem using magic spells before, maybe something like a golem made of fire would be able to use fire spells…」


At that moment Rommon-chan has decided what we will be doing for today while having a cute doya face.


「I just remembered! Rommon-chan said yesterday, that you that you were able to use recovery magic! 」


Somehow, I also feel proud about it.


【That’s right! 】

「Eh!? Really! But mom said that with a genius golem, it would definitely be impossible for them to learn recovery magic… Ahhh! My head can’t take it!」

「Ha! Ha! Ha! Iris-chan is really amazing you know, you can’t compare her to any other species of golem.」

「Ehem! 」

【Ehem! 】


The both of us put our hands on our waist and push out our chest with pride.

I could not become a beautiful guy or pretty girl, but if I will be considered a genius among all is OK, I can enjoy this golem way of life in a meaningful way.


「Alright got it. But first is me! You can practice magic in the afternoon! 」

「Un, it was you who asked first anyway. 」

「Well then, let’s go for it Iris-chan! 」

【By your will】

It is also nice that they are competing for me.

Being in a competition between two beautiful girls… this is definitely my time to be popular!


After saying all those things, Rinne-chan and I went outside leaving Rommon-chan and started practicing with her twin swords.

First is memorizing her moves, then I took the position of the one receiving the attacks.


【this is how you do it, you ave to guard it like this】

「I see, so that’s how you move the hands.」

【Yes, that’s why I can easily evade Rinne-sama’s attack____】


I will be teaching her various things I know little by little.

In this way she will definitely become stronger.

When I am teaching her, her eyes seems to be sparkling and when hearing stories, but most of it are things to teach her of course.

It is nice to see the product of a person’s effort.


Besides it seems that attack, defense, speed which has been improved many times too.

I also gained benefits from this.


Our total training time was four hours plus a 30 minute break in between since this morning.



「Onee-chan, it’s lunch time!」

「Hai! I’m coming now! Ah, the training has ended, please teach me again tommorow」

【Yes, with pleasure】


I and Rinne-chan then went back inside the house. I meditated again as Rinne-chan and Rommon-chan was having their meal.

From the afternoon onwards it will be studying for magic.


◆ ◆ ◆


「Then, it’s time for studying magic Iris-chan! 」

【Hai! 】

「It is extremely rare to find a toon golem memorizing magic, is it okay for me to observe as well?」

「It’s fine, Grandpa」

「Thanks for having me around.」


In that way, Gramps decided to join us in studying.


「Iris, do you remember how to use 『Pair』 can you try and execute it? 」

【Yes, I still remember it】


I released magical power flowing in my body outside (from my palm) while imagining with a feeling that it will provide recovery.

Then as a sign of success, a green soothing light emerges.

Once you memorized the for it, you don’t really need to chant anything.


「You were actually able to do it! This is truly surprising that the common sense regarding monsters will probably be questioned. 」


Wolk shows rounded surprised eyes as he said that excitedly.


「Then, as a Demon User I will do my best to assist you!」


Then suddenly Rommon-chan announces that, but well I don’t really understand anything about demon users or their techniques.


【What are demon user techniques?】

「What are demon user techniques right? One needed to share MP with your familiar or use the familiars MP! There are two commonly used techniques, the first one is very useful where the damage from the demon user is shared towards the familiar. And the other one is… hmmm? What was it again? 」

「Ummm, what is it again grandpa?」

「Don’t ask me, you should look it up yourself from the book」

「Yes, right! Errr…」


Book is it… Now that I think about, I seem to be able to read the letters of this world, and it also seems that I’m also able to write it but I have never actually tried it out.

Let me try reading for a bit.


【Rommon-sama, can you show me the book for a bit? 】

「Eh? About that is just… wouldn’t it be hard? 」

【Is it so? I could read the blacksmith’s billboard yesterday, I might also be able to write it if I try? 】



The two of them were staring at me so surprised because I was beyond what they could expect.

Well it is already surprising enough that I can do conversations so fluently after all.


「Eh… Even demons cannot read or write letters… even some humans can’t read or write…」

「For the time being try writing something. Here, some paper and Pen 」

【Understood… then I will write 「I am Iris」】

「Ah, please do so」


Holding the pen was a bit difficult but I was able to use it somehow, I wrote on the paper 「I am Iris」 and  「Hello」 right after it.


【Here it is. As you can see, I was able to write】

「Let’s see… 「I am Iris, Hello」…Iris-chan, could it be, are you human inside? 」

「I also felt that way…」


That suspicion sure surprised me…

Let’s change the subject quickly.


【By, by the way, shouldn’t we start with magic practice now】

「Well, there is no use pursuing that topic, Iris-chan is just a genius」

「Wow! Iris-chan is no longer just a normal demon…」

【For, for the time being please show me the book】

「Oh, that’s right. Rommon show it to her. 」

「Y, yes」


I received the book and looked at its contents.


【The other pattern is… Improve capability of using auxiliary magic, can be used with any auxiliary magic… Rommon-sama, I don’t recommend using the first pattern instead you should use this one.】

「You really could read it… yeah, I don’t plan on using the first patter because it’s only used in cases of emergencies」

「Hou… It’s splendid…」


As expected it was more astonishing to see me reading the book than understanding the book itself.

Well it would still be of no use without practice!

【Rommon-sama, Wolk- sama, can you please stop being too surprised anymore and we should proceed with the practice. 】

「Ah, sorry, that’s right」

「I’m sorry too, Then let us continue studying about Demon Support」


And then everyone finally ceased to be surprised, Rommon-chan began reading the book once more.


「Hmmm… What would be good to start with?」


For now, I want someone to use recovery magic on.

A golem has high defensive capability, then if recovery magic is added then I won’t be having problems with simple enemies.


【I want to learn magic, next to pair.】

「Next to pair is… Repair is it, alright I’ll teach you about it.」

【…Thank you】


Oh, right why haven’t  they asked about that.

The level I mean.


【Is it ok for me to ask one more thing】

「It’s Alright」

【I heard that Toon Golems should have evolved from level 5 but I’m now level 7】

「Oh, that’s… if that’s the case then it will be for subspecies evolution」


Subspecies Evolution? What is that subspecies evolution?

Can I still possibly evolve?

Chapter 10 The Skills of the Twin Sister

TL: Yuki link



Rinne-chan was holding two sticks shaped like a sword.

I you look closely, you can see that her body is fit and resembles that of a sporty school girl which joins sports clubs.

I guess this is the result of everyday training.


「Fuu… Well then, can you show me how you defeated those two professional adventurers? 」
