Isekai Canceller – Chapter 14

Oh man, the language in this chapter. Normally I try to town it down (since Japanese isn’t as insulting as English) but I guess this chapter will be the exception. Do note that the person cursing all the time is the Soldier-like guy, he has a name but I’ll add it when it’s mentioned. Also, there certain parts that I struggled on so I apologize for any inaccuracies, I’ll have to get them in the secondary TLC, eventually.
Anyways, Enjoy.

Side note: One more chapter until 15 huh… I wonder if I should do Kenja afterwards or the teaser. The Kenja chapter is a bit boring but the teaser will probably make me depressed. Hmmm….
Also I’ll add a Glossary page for terms and such, mostly for my own use but I guess others might find it helpful. (Link)

 

Chapter 14: Slave and Adventurer

 

Suddenly shouting, the man came closer to me.
Looking at him again, he had a really nasty and coarse physique.
Anyways, his muscles were certainly no joke, and his height was enormous. It wouldn’t be hard to believe that he was about 2 meters tall.
(TL note: 6 ft. 5.5″)

 

I’m not a very short person but, even still I normally would have to tilt my head back to look at him. Since I was sitting down, if I fixed my eyes on him for too long then I think my neck would start to hurt pretty bad.

 

And I think his equipment were pretty good items as well.
Resting on his shoulders was black scale armor that looked like it used the Demon Beast “Black Turtle” as raw materials.
I think that his gauntlet and greaves were made similarly.

 

At a glace I could not tell if it had some Magic Effect attached to it, but I do know that the Black Turtle itself is extremely hard.
If you attacked it with an average weapon then I doubt it would even leave a scratch.

 

In addition, gathering these raw materials must have been extremely difficult. Just from that I could tell that he was a pretty skilled adventurer.

 

Well, all that’s left is his face huh. Yea, his angular face was also quite large. And his hair was a crimson color.
With a face like that, if he covered it in scars then it would be plenty intimidating.

 

Well, even if he didn’t have any scars it was still a very rugged and gruff face. If you showed it to a child they would without a doubt start crying. It was that kind of face.

 

And, that guy was glaring at me as if he despised me.
What should I do, I’m shaking in my boots. Just kidding.
Actually, because of this guy that girl who brought us our food hastily retreated to the back huh.

 

「I’ve been listening for a while now――」

 

Whoa, he opened up his big mouth just like a turtle does when it swallows something huh.

 

「And you’ve only been spouting random bullshit!」

 

Looks like he snapped once again huh. I can hear you even if you don’t shout in a loud voice though――

 

「Frankly speaking, I have absolutely no idea why you feel so offended」(Hitto)

 

「Ahhn? Ya don’t get it? Are you making fun of me, –kora[1]!」

 

I’m not really making fun of you. Or rather, I don’t understand a single thing this guy is saying.

 

「What I’m fking pissed off at! Is the way you treat that slave! You bastard―― What’s with the way you treat your fking slave, –Gora!」

 

It sort of fits his appearance, but his way of talking oozed of idiocy.
Just how much of a “Yankee[2]” is this guy?

 

「I’m was just thinking about feeding her dinner like normal though」(Hitto)

 

「Ahhn? Normal you say?」

 

「That’s right. Is something strange about that?」(Hitto)

 

「Of fking course there is, –kora! In the first place, that bitch[3], she isn’t sitting on the floor! Why is she fking sitting in a chair like a human being, –kora!

 

Ahh, I see. Basically, this guy is like “that”. He is a believer in the segregation of slaves huh, I see no wonder why.

 

「Goshujin-sama. I will move to the floor so here we should――」(Melissa)
「No, it’s fine. Just stay there」(Hitto)
「But that is……」(Melissa)
「It’s fine so just stay where you are. Also, if you did something like that then I would feel bad because it would look like I somehow lost」(Hitto)

 

After I said that much, while showing a concerned expression, Melissa remained sitting in the chair.
However, as expected, this guy doesn’t seem like he would accept that.

 

「Bastard, you’ve got some nerve. To think that you wouldn’t fix things even after I said so much huh」

 

「I don’t need to fix anything. I don’t know how you do things, and I don’t plan on nitpicking at your methods but, when it comes to Melissa I will do things as I want. In addition, you don’t have any right to complain about it」(Hitto)

 

「Do as you want, you say? You mean the way you treat her like a human being? Earlier you also wanted food to be prepared for that bitch, you’ve only been fking around so far」

 

「I’m not really “messing around”. Also, I would appreciate it if you stopped saying “bitch, bitch”. Melissa is a person, a human being. She’s not some animal」(Hitto)

 

After I answered back at him again and again, the man snorted while making a sort of stupid looking expression.

 

「A human you say? Are you really saying that, you bastard! That thing’s a slave you know!」

 

「What of it? Being a slave doesn’t change the fact that she’s still a person」(Hitto)

 

「That’s where yur wrong! Listen up! Slaves are possessions[4]! They’re livestock! They’re not fking humans! They are an existence that is forever inferior to humans! Slaves don’t got to eat food that ain’t leftovers, and they don’t got to sit in fking chairs! It’s good enough as long as they service the Masters that buy them! Do you really not understand that, you fking idiot!」

 

Geez, just be listening to him I think my ears would rot. In the past I also thought that I wanted a slave but, just listening to this conversation only left me feeling disgusted.

 

「Enough already, I get it. Like I said before, I don’t plan on voicing any complaints about how you treat your slaves. However, I don’t plan on changing the way I do things. Against someone like me, just talking would be completely pointless right? So hurry up and return to your seat――」(Hitto)

 

In that instant, along with an outrageously loud sound, the round table that I was sitting at suddenly disappeared from in front of me. And from inside the kitchen you can hear the echo of something shattering to pieces.

 

Most likely that was the table that was just here.
“Kyaa~” a scream resounded out immediately afterwards, and the other guests ran away from the dining hall in a panic.
Wait…… My food――

 

「What I’m saying is, that I don’t fking like it you piece of shit」

 

Melissa was completely tensed up. For now, it’s good that she wasn’t hurt, but her shoulders were already shaking.
Well that’s to be expected. After all, she had to listen to this guy rant and then he went and destroyed the table.

 

「I don’t really care but hey you, is it really alright if you make a scene here? Even as a joke, you’re an adventurer right?」(Hitto)

 

Causing trouble is forbidden right, for adventurers.

 

「Ahhn? Are you just a poser with that outfit of yours? There isn’t anybody in this town who hasn’t heard of me, the [Expert] rank Zak[5]. There’s no one with a death wish that would go complaining about me doing something like this」(Zak)

 

I see. No wonder why the kitchen staff retreated inside and are doing nothing but cower in fear.
Doesn’t look like the guards are coming anytime soon either

 

「So, what exactly do you want from me? No matter how you look at it, starting a fight would be bad right?」(Hitto)

 

Well, going by the reasoning of that trio I met earlier today, they claimed that it would be OK as long as long as we used only our bare-hands.

 

「Yea, I won’t be doing something stupid like that. A duel. If we do that then there will be no complaints!」

 

…… A duel huh. Now that you mention it, I completely forgot about that.
Certainly that sort of System existed back in the game as well. Basically, except for in certain specified areas, it was forbidden for players to commit acts like killing or to PK other players. But the act of dueling was acceptable.

 

However, even with that it was supposed to be impossible to have a duel while you were in a city. Something like a Colosseum or some other special facility, if you weren’t within one of these Fields then it should be impossible. Obviously, you also needed the consent of both parties to have a duel.

 

「Having a duel while in the city should be forbidden right?」(Hitto)

 

Just in case I talked about the parts I knew about. Although there was no evidence yet, but there is a high probability that the game’s system was reflected onto this world.

 

「Ahhn? What are you talking about, bastard. This ain’t inside the city, it’s inside an inn right?」(Zak)

 

This guy just replied with his own nonsensical rule huh…… But based on this, as expected, you basically can’t start a duel while in the city.

 

Well then, if even you tell me this I still don’t have a reason for doing something so troublesome as a duel.
In the first place, this was something that guy decided on his own without the inn’s okay. If this guy killed me then he might be able to weasel his way out of it, but if I ended up killing him instead then there’s a pretty high chance that it would turn into a big deal.

 

With all to lose and nothing to gain, it was a completely ridiculous situation.

 

「Sorry but I refuse. I won’t do something so pointless」(Hitto)
「So your basically saying, even though you said some arrogant things, you’re gonna abandon your very own slave huh?」(Zak)

 

‘What?’ I turned my head towards Melissa but―― Before I even noticed, that Maid had circled around Melissa and was holding a knife to her neck

 

「If you happen to decline the duel then I’ll order her to slice and kill your fking slave without hesitation. My “training” is flawless. She absolutely won’t defy me」(Zak)

 

Kuu…… I let down my guard, this is the worst. In this situation my [Cancel] is completely useless.
The people who got involved with Melissa, it was possible for me to [Cancel] their actions since it was right before they happened. If I used [Cancel] on that Maid then her raised knife might temporarily be put away.

 

However, right after she hears the order from this man called Zak, she will definitely go for the kill again.
If the target of my [Cancel] happens to be the same opponent, then there will be a short time-delay before I can reuse it on them.

 

On the other hand, using [Cancel] on Zak would also be pointless. This guy must have been angry at me from the moment we entered the dinning hall.
[Cancel] won’t be able to erase those feelings he had.

 

If I used [Cancel] on the duel itself then he would immediately challenge me to another duel.
In this situation I only have one option left to choose.

 

Che, this really is troublesome.

 

「Alright, I’ll accept the duel」(Hitto)

 

「Master don’t! You shouldn’t do it! It’s impossible to go against an [Expert] opponent! Please don’t concern yourself with someone like me and」(Melissa)
「DON’T SAY SOMETHING SO STUPID!」(Hitto)

 

I unintentionally shouted. Melissa gives up too easily. But, your own life is on the line here. Don’t just give up on your own life like that.

 

「Melissa. For just a little bit, Believe in your Master」(Hitto)

 

I could hear her whisper ‘Master’ in a quite voice.
Seriously, I’m pissed. To make Melissa suffer because of this――

 

「So? How are we doing this?」(Hitto)

 

「Huh, that’s obvious」(Zak)

 

The man picked up the Bag at his feet, and retrieved his personal weapon from it.
I was always curious about it, but looks like this guy has a Magic Bag as well.

 

「You bastard, are those twin swords on your waist your weapons?」(Zak)

 

I only answered ‘Yea, that’s right’. However, the fact that I took off my armor really sucks huh.
Although my Bag was pretty much sitting near Melissa’s feet, I doubt he would give me the time to go get it.

 

Thanks to that, right now I’m only dressed in a shirt and trousers.

 

Conversely, my opponent was wearing armor, and was stylishly brandishing a giant sword on his shoulder.
Well, even so, I don’t plan on killing this guy. Of course this was actually an official duel. In the appropriate situation I won’t hesitate to use legitimate self defense, but the situation right now has way too many undefined elements too it.

 

「So, let’s do this. Oi Seira, you better not fking let your eyes off that woman until the duel is over」(Zak)
「――Yes, Master」(Seira)

 

A monotone voice…… it sounded just like a machine huh. Now that I look at it her face is pretty though.

 

「This ain’t the time to be distracted by another person’s slave!」(Zak)

 

While saying that, Zak suddenly started to swing his giant sword.
At once I started to move in order to avoid the trajectory of his sword.
But as expected, I could easily tell that my movements were hindered without the benefits of my equipment

 

That being said, this guy really isn’t holding back huh. Screams continued to come from the kitchen.
Of course they would. After all, everything in the way of this guy’s swing was completely demolished by the giant sword.

 

There was even a hole in the wall. What will you do about the repair costs? I won’t be held responsible you know?

 

「Hmph, endlessly running around like that, seems like you’re at least quick on your feet」(Zak)

 

「Thanks for the compliment」(Hitto)

 

I casually returned his banter. But the truth is that I can’t be too careless.
What I have been dodging was this guy’s enormously large swings.
I was predicting the trajectory.

 

Well, thanks to that I pretty much know what Job this guy has though――

 

TL Extra note: And so it begins. Don’t get too excited though 😛

 


TL Extra note 2: For those who want to know, all the “Bastard”s are the guy calling Hitto [てめぇ]/”Te-mee”, I explained in an earlier chapter that its a rude way of addressing someone. FYI Hitto addressed “the guy” with various rude-ish terms as well, such as “Yatsu” , “Koitsu”, “Omae” etc.

1.

TL Note: “Kora~” is sort of like cursing at someone out of anger. It can be used like “HEY!” but is more similar to saying something “F**ker”.
Same thing with “Gora”

2.

TL note: A Yankee is like an uncultured hooligan/delinquent

3.

TL note: The word here is [雌]/”Mesu” meaning “Female animal”. It’s akin to “bitch, whore, etc.” but would more accurately be something like “Swine”.

4.

TL note: The word here is [物]/”Mono” which means “Thing, Object, Possession, Property, etc.”

5.

TL note: His name is [ザック]/”Zakku” which I converted to Zak. You can transcribe it as Zack or Zach but I think Zak “looks” more like the original.
[Expert rank] is rank 5 from [Beginner]. For reference, that’s 2 ranks above the [Amateur] ranked Thieves and the other trio we’ve encountered so far.

    • Don’t say that… Killing is bad 😦 Once, that is.

      It’s better to (1) kill him, (2) cancel his death, (3) kill him again in a more painful way, then repeat from step (2) until the other guy (a) goes insane or (b) begs to be allowed to die. If it’s (a), then (4) cancel his insanity, and then go back to step (1). If it’s (b), then just go straight back to (1) while skipping (4).

  2. Thank you for translating this chapter, but i’m really hoping that this MC will be ‘less polite’ to obvious asshats. Like seriously dude you’re in another world, and still using logic that very well applies to your previous world, but when trouble arises, you act like you can’t be bothered when you caused it yourself. *Just had to get that off my chest, thanks again to this translation*

    • This MC is typical “dense” MC that will hold his logic till the end
      If this is Harem story, it would be something like this at the ending
      “after save the world, freed the princess(es) making party with most beautiful bishojo(s) ….
      to the point is he get loves from all direction and he “like” them all, he would say ‘This is not right’, so he end up with only 1 heroine (even having harem is a “common” thing in that world)”
      But this is also funny, because sometimes the author make 1 volume dedicated for side character heroine. The author raise the hope of possible love interest and smash the “hope” in the end leaving bittersweet ending and beautifully call it “True Ending”
      For me its just like (many)bitter(one)sweet ending

  3. Jeez that quote said from the adventurer was truly disgusting to the core slavery is just so immoral and wrong. That adventurer could have just minded his own business but had to be the busybody sigh time for him to get reck’d next chapter :).

    • You forgot the most IMPORTANT part
      he is TRANSPORTED/SENT to a different world where slavery is another classified species below the humans. They may look like humans but they are not humans thats the norm in that world. A slave with no master well basically die.
      The adventure reaction is just normal
      For example Imagine yourself as a dog lover then near you a person is forcing his dog to act as a cat well you be happy watching?
      The reason I love reading this novel is I am enjoying one sided comments with disregarding the novel and basing it to there own norm to the point they forget that they are reading a fantasy which aims to be different from reality its so funny each person defending the mc saying his right lol

    • don’t compare him to Kouki, who actively attacks people he thinks is inferior to him and suddenly loses his righteous fervor if he’s dealing with an authority figure or public opinion. Remember, Kouki went along with whatever the king or church said and actually conformed more to that world. It was only when Hajime did something that he would get his special needs helmet in a bunch (bad writing on the author’s part).

      • I think your jumping to the other extreme (as apposed to saying he should change the world cuz it’s bad). What he’s doing isn’t trying to force his view on the world. The MC has even done shit yet. The arguments are completely duelist, change the world or conform to it. He isn’t doing either. He hasn’t set out to abolish slavery nor has he messed with any slave owners. He’s just not treating her the same way other people in that world do. It’s his own actions, deciding them based on his own morals is fine. The only actually being affected by them is Melisa and her feelings on it range from troubled to ecstatic.

        • true but that only applies if he do that actions when both of them are alone but openly doing that in the public is declaring war against society
          He might think his actions is his own but when everyone see you doing that action that’s the same as going against the norm.
          You are only saying at MC point of view
          you forgot society is not blind doing the biggest taboo is the same as forcing his own ideal and declaring war to that worlds society.
          Your also wrong, Melisa only suffer open discrimination mc continuously humiliating her by not treating her as a slave. But the other slave who look at them also feel ashame and pity for there fellow slave and other master also feel hate towards mc. so like I said MC is in the wrong here people who fail to see that I find them amusing lol

          Like

          • You keep talking about how the MC is the bad guy for treating Melissa that way, but you also keep saying he should fit in with society – a society that clearly doesn’t give a damn about the feelings of slaves, right? So why do you keep going on about that? Disregarding how slaves feel is the norm, you should be celebrating the fact.

            Also, even if you hold common sense enough to attempt to fit in with society, letting go of your morals having just arrived in another world is pretty unbelievable. Sure, the writer could just have made an amoral MC instead of the perhaps overly moral one we have – but they didn’t, and that’s fair enough. I mean, if he had no power in this other world then the MC conforming to society just for the sake of appearances, or due to pressure, or whatever would make sense, but his ability is broken enough for him to get out of most any pinch thrown at him, so he doesn’t feel any need to abandon his morals.

            And, by the by, you mentioned in another post that “they don’t have human rights since they where never human to begin with” but Melissa herself says “At the time when us slaves are first registered as slaves at the Slave Guild then, we have subordination magic cast on us.”
            Which means that actually yeah, you’re wrong there, because at one point the slaves were not slaves. And the slave magic can theoretically be cancelled, she says. So, they are humans. They are just humans bound by magic, who are treated like animals by society. Doesn’t stop them being humans – so the MC applying his own morals makes perfect sense.

            • and like I always say he is sent to ANOTHER world
              and from your point of view which you base clearly to our own modern society
              you clearly disregard the fact that I am talking at the point of view in ANOTHER WORLD
              its already common sense that slave are human but in that world once you became slave you are no longer human, you fail to mention that a slave with no master well die after a few days.
              MC was clearly abusing his own slave by forcing his own moral standard which is the exact opposite in that world. And I think MC is not that stupid to not realize that yet he still continue his own action yet he mention once that he is trying hard not to capture societies attention which is clearly opposite from his behavior. And like you said MC is already OP enough so he can take care of his own but what about the slave girl? 1st mc disregard her own belief as a slave 2nd MC humiliate her by making her act as human which is a big taboo in that society and 3rd MC is not even the owner of the slave yet so he has no right of doing the 1st and 2nd.

              Like

              • At no point did I disregard the fact that it’s another world, where “common sense” is entirely different and societies rules do not match our own. Everything I said was regarding how he is in another world, and he is still using his morals from his old world, because people don’t change overnight and there is no need for him to change, in his eyes, since he can take care of himself – and his slave, even if she isn’t his slave yet.

                Also, “he has no right of doing 1st and 2nd” since she isn’t his slave? That’s just a kinda stupid thing to say, because he clearly doesn’t care about having the right to act this way, he just does it because he thinks that’s right.

                And they won’t just drop dead after a few days, people are sent to find them and torture them so they’ll never think of escaping again. It’s specifically stated they don’t kill them. So, me not mentioning that they will die after a few days… would be because it’s not true. Yeah.

                Also, given that it’s already been made pretty obvious he’s gonna be finding a way to set her free, he would surely not feel like staining his morals by treating her poorly only to then free her and have to somehow interact like normal human beings.
