Slave Harem – 196 – Bottomless

Hey guys,

mranon here (after a long time).
Here’s your (Ugh, this is quite a task) seventeenth, and fourteenth bonus, Slave Harem chapter for the week.
Okay, there are two news I have for you.
First, IT’S STILL THE SAME WEEK, GUYS! Some of you are concerned about lack of regular chapters. Yeah, there are supposed to be three regular chapters a week, but we have already released three regular chapters at the start of the week. Like I said before, I’ll let you guys know when the week ends; I won’t keep you uniformed.
Second, we have decided to make a-bonus-chapter-for-100-comments a regular thing (only for Slave Harem). So, you can have another bonus chapter tomorrow if there are 100 comments on this chapter. (No spam)
This chapter was translated by airsblue and edited by Takki and me.
Well then, without further ado, enjoy the read.

Yours truly,

Translated by airsblue
Edited by Takki and mranon


“Is… that so?”

As she learns that she cannot use the same magic as me, Rutina gets depressed.

Since a Wizard cannot cast two spells simultaneously, it cannot be helped.
She has no choice but to give up.
I have no way of following it up.

“It’s alright. Just being able to use magic is helpful in its own right.”

Roxanne-sensei, this cannot be considered a follow up.

“O-Oh well, it’ll be fine. Roxanne, next please.”

I assign the next task to Roxanne.
If she’s occupied, she won’t be able to ‘follow up’.

Roxanne guides us to the next group. It comprises two Tur Turtles and a Gummi Slime.
Since there are three, I strike them down with Thunder magic. (TN: We have been using Lightning and Thunder interchangeably. It will now only be Thunder)
Because the three get easily paralyzed right after we encounter them, Miria doesn’t get a chance to petrify any of them.

Maybe because I have Large Increase in Intelligence set as Jobless effect, the number of spells I need to cast hasn’t increased even though we’re on a higher floor.
Actually, I should rather be relieved since it hasn’t decreased.
Against the next group of three Tur Turtles and two Gummi Slimes, I use Thunder and Ice magic.
It’s about time we encountered a monster that would use an area of effect magic attack.

“Did it, desu.”

However, before we could receive a magic attack, it ends with Miria showcasing her brilliant performance.
Three of them have gotten petrified.
With Miria having petrified three monsters, my next Thunder spell wipes them out.
I assumed that the monsters would be more active if I reduced the number of Thunder spells; instead, did my not delaying them only served to increase Miria’s preys?

“Is this chunk of ice perhaps Ice magic?”

Rutina asks after the battle.
Ah, right. Was this her first time seeing my Ice magic?

“That’s right. Rutina will soon be able to use it.”
“But I thought only a Grand Wizard would be able to use Ice magic.”
“That’s right. Therefore, Rutina will be able to manage it, somehow.”

Rutina gets surprised when I tell her that she will be able to use it, somehow.
Although she is a Wizard now, she will be able to use it once she becomes a Grand Wizard.
So, it’s not a lie.

“It’s okay. You’ll be able to use it.”
“Do you mean to say ‘after a long time’?”
“Since Master said it’s okay, it IS okay.”

Adds Roxanne.

“Y-Yes, Roxanne-ane-sama.”
“Well, I mean to say ‘before long’.”

The reason as to why I believe Rutina will become a Grand Wizard quickly is owing to Gained Experience 20x.
On a side note, she’s a Wizard Lv5 at the moment.

“Err, was that *pikapika* sparkling and glittering magic perhaps-”
“Thunder magic.”
“S-So, it really was like I suspected, huh? Then, saying that I’ll be able use it ‘before long’……”

I wonder if she really understands what soon means.
Rutina is feeling depressed because she thinks it will take a long time.
So, I tell her that she will be able to use that *pikapika* sparkling and glittering magic before long.

Rutina seems to be aware that a Grand Wizard can use Thunder magic.
It isn’t strange for her to know about Thunder magic since she already knows about Ice magic.
Leaving whether she has seen it before or not aside.
Why is it that she didn’t know it was Thunder magic until it was mentioned?

“By any chance, have you never seen Thunder magic?”
“I thought it would be a magic with an even louder sound.”

Speaking of which, I have heard about ‘raimei’ being thunder and ‘inadzuma’ being lightning.
Since it is accompanied by thunder, it is appropriate to call it [Thunder Storm].
It may be unrelated to Brahim, though.

It may probably be normal for her to have never seen thunder since she was an earl’s daughter.
That she were sheltered in the castle, she would only hear the sound.
Rutina doesn’t answer my question whether she has seen thunder before or not.

“If you mean ‘gorogoro’ rumbling sound, it’s not possible unless it’s a Thunder magic of an even larger scale.”
“Is that really so? Since it is magic, you should be able to produce just the sound.”

Because I babble something out carelessly, Sherry nibbles.
That was dangerous, wasn’t it?
My superficial knowledge has gotten exposed.
When will I be able to talk carelessly in this world.

“The thunder’s main body is what inflicts the damage to a monster. It’s only sparsely necessary to produce the sound.”

Although the sound is part of the attack, the core of Thunder magic is lightning.
And the paralysis is thanks to electricity.

“So, that sound is only an attachment.”
“Rather than an attachment, it’s the result of lightning.”
“The sound is a resultant?”
“Thunder magic is basically thunder; you can hear a *pachipachi* crackling sound if you listen carefully. If it were on the same scale as natural thunder, it would probably produce *baribari* ripping sound.”
“So, it’s like that, huh?”

What a relief.
I have somehow managed to convince Sherry.

“Somehow, both of you are amazing.”

Rutina’s query has successfully been diverted.
Thanks to Sherry.

“At times like this, it’s better to leave them alone.”

I can hear you, Roxanne.

“Understood, Roxanne-ane-sama.”
“Ignore, desu.”
“I think it’s alright.”

That was harsh, Miria, Vesta, and for no real reason.
After having wiped two groups out with Thunder magic, we encounter four Tur Turtles and a Clamshell next.
Because there are four Tur Turtles, I cast [Dirt Storm].

Not only that we don’t get hit by any area of effect magic attack, the monsters die quickly, too.
It was fast also when I used Wind magic against the Gummi Slimes on the 23rd floor.
Rutina doesn’t get to cast any spell this time as well.

In other words, my magic power has gone up.
It’s most likely thanks to Large Increase in Intelligence set as Jobless effect.
It’s also thanks to the rising level of Great Hero and Rutina’s Wizard; however, the effect of Jobless is the most potent.

On the 23rd and 24th floors, the number of Thunder spells I cast – 2 – hasn’t changed; however, the number of Thunder spells and the spell of an attribute the monster is weak against combined seems to have changed.
Whether the damage required to defeat is equivalent to 0.1 spell or 0.9 spell, the number of spells required will round up to 1; hence, the difference will be 1 spell wide.
It may also have to do with that.

I steal a glance at Sherry; however, she doesn’t seem to be paying attention.
Has she not noticed?
Or, does she not feel the need to meddle at this point?

Now that I think about it, Sherry knows that I can adjust the magic power, too.
Earlier, I adjusted it on a lower floor to beat a monster half-dead in order to acquire a job.
She may think it is the same as that time.
Do I not need to mind the reduction in the number of spells and Rutina leveling up?

That’s it.
It’s part of an experiment.
It’s purely an experiment.
Let’s go with that.

Nothing can be done regarding the change in magic power.
I resolve myself and continue hunting.
You can say that I’ve become serious.

Rutina becomes a Wizard Lv7 shortly after.
As expected, leveling up is faster on the 24th floor.
We have yet to receive an area of effect magic attack.

“Area of effect magic attacks aren’t coming in on this floor either. So, how about we move up a floor since you’ve gotten used to it?”

I propose to Rutina.

“You’re right. I think I have gotten a little used to it. The suffocation due to casting magic has gone. I think I’ll be able to do it. However, I’m not sure if it’s okay to move to a higher floor.”

It’s simply because your level has increased.
Well, that’s fine, too.

“Ah, n-no. I would love to move to a higher floor.”

When Roxanne glares at her, Rutina corrects herself.
It doesn’t look good going to a higher floor.
Is it okay to move, but you don’t want to? Or, is it not okay to move?
I want her to take responsibility for her own words, not someone else’s.

“That’s right.”

When she corrects herself, Roxanne nods.
It’s not good to pressurize her.
If she feels danger, I want her to actively oppose.

Oh well. Since Rutina said it’s okay, it should be okay.
We move on to the 25th floor.

“Quratar’s 25th floor monster……was it Cape Carp or Black Frog?”
“It was Black Frog.”
“If I’m not mistaken, its weakness……was Fire attribute?”

I brief while Sherry follows up.
I’m pathetic.
Nah, I was just confused as to which one was where.
If the 25th floor monster is Black Frog, the 26th floor monster will be Cape Carp. Probably.

“Therefore, if there is a large number of Black Frogs or Gummi Slimes, cast [Fire Storm]; if there are more Tur Turtles, cast [Sand Storm]. It’s Sherry’s duty to collect the information about the floor monsters and their weaknesses. Sherry is very knowledgeable and smart. From now on, I will have Sherry brief.”

I use this opportunity to leave the briefing to Sherry.
I cannot lose more face than I already have.
That’s wrong way of putting it. It’s called ‘right man for the right job’.

I know that the 26th floor monster is Cape Carp.
I also know the ones on 27th floor and up, of course.
After all, we have been fighting all these monsters all this time.

“I understand. [Fire Storm] it is.”

Somehow, both Sherry and Rutina have gotten it.

“Then, take us to a place with fewer monsters, Roxanne.”
“Okay. This way then.”

We proceed under Roxanne’s lead.
The group we come across comprises two Black Frogs and a Tur Turtle.
Since it’s a black frog, Rutina should be able to recognize it.

The five girls start running.
After casting two [Thunder Storm]s, I follow after them.
Since there is small number of monsters, Thunder magic would do.

Why is Rutina not casting a spell?
Is she preserving it?
Oh well. There are only a few enemies anyway.

If it were me, I would cast [Fire Storm] regardless.
Is she conducting herself elegantly as one would expect from an earl’s daughter?
Don’t be greedy.

“Did it, desu.”

Was two too few? This time, Miria petrifies both of them.
As expected.
Don’t be greedy, though.
The Estoc of Petrifaction is thirsting for blood.

On the next group, Rutina uses magic.
She seems to be able to cast [Fire Storm] without any problem.
We continue to hunt on the 25th floor.

“Be it 23rd, 24th or 25th floor, the number of spells doesn’t seem to have increased.”

Asks Sherry when I finish almost all the monsters off with my Thunder magic.
Even Miria cannot petrify all the monsters all the time, I guess.

Or so I thought; however, she doesn’t seem to be accusing me with cold eyes.
She appears to be asking me genuinely.

“It’s a little experiment. I’ll be carrying it on for a while.”

Right. Experiment.
Even if my magic power changes, there won’t be any problem.
It’s an experiment.

When Rutina’s level increases and the number of spells decreases, I’ll call the experiment off.
Perfect, no?

“Is that so?”

Sherry withdraws easily.
She understands the importance of an experiment.

However, Roxanne is looking at me with an astonished expression.
Again? This feeling.
Hey Roxanne, your heart is a bit too loud.

“Roxanne, next.”

I ask of Roxanne, who doesn’t seem to understand the importance of an experiment, to guide us.
We continue with the hunting.
We’ll keep at it until Rutina reaches Wizard Lv10.
We’ll continue even after she reaches Wizard Lv10.

We advanced to the 24th floor when her Wizard turned Lv4, 25th floor when it turned Lv7; therefore, it should be fine to advance to the 26th floor when it turns Lv10.
However, thus far, we haven’t received any area of effect magic attack.
It won’t be a good idea to move to a higher floor just yet.

We may receive one if we stay on the 25th floor for a while.
If Rutina’s level goes up and the number of spells cast changes, It’ll be enough reason to end the experiment.
To be specific, it (the number of spells) will decrease.
Come on, batch (group of monsters)!

“Here it comes.”

Roxanne warns.
A blue magic formation manifests under the Black Frog’s white abdomen.
Rather than the number of spells decreasing, comes in an area of effect magic attack.

Water dances around us.
My body gets squeezed tightly as I feel slight pain.
Albeit light, it’s pain nonetheless.
Besides, it’s momentary.

It’s not to the extent that I cannot bear it.
The damage shouldn’t be heavy either.
Has the area of effect magic attack on the 25th floor always amounted to only this much?
Or, maybe it’s the effect of Great Hero’s Large Increase in Endurance.

I counterattack with a [Fire Storm]; immediately after, the frog collapses.

“How was the monster attack? Are you alright?”

I confirm with Rutina.

“Yes. If it’s just that, I can probably go on.”
“Great. Are you sure?”

Rutina didn’t seem to receive heavy damage.
Well, she had Plating applied on her.
Also, Rutina seems to be gaining confidence.
“As expected of me,” is what she was muttering.

“I don’t think we need [Area of Effect Heal]; what should I do?”

Enquires Roxanne.
I didn’t receive much damage, so I don’t need recovery.
It’s probably the same for Roxanne, too.
As far as Rutina’s recovery is concerned, Monk’s Heal would be better than Area of Effect Heal.

“Can you cast one for now? It’s our first for today, so it should be fine.”

Because I don’t have Monk selected at the moment, it’ll be difficult to change jobs and cast Heal.
Therefore, I ask of Roxanne to cast [Area of Effect Heal].

“D-Did no one receive enough damage to require recovery?”
“Well, that’s probably so.”

I re-apply Plating on Rutina.

“Because it’s a party with a Dragon Knight.”
“I’ve indeed heard about the stability of a party with a Dragon Knight. Does that have to do with the damage getting reduced? Then, was that also the reason for my receiving less damage?”

Damn you, Sherry. After Rutina finally gained some confidence, you pushed her down again.

We will be commenting until sm1 dies. HUE HUEHUE HUE HUE


not really there are only 18 more raw chapters left from what I remember so lets just make him work for a little more then a month w/o stopping.


That’s more than enough for’em to die from exhaustion.

Shia Surprise

It’s self-inflicted… he might like it…

“No no this is for the fans *pant pant*”
“Just one more”
“Now I have to give them another one”
*Cycle repeats*


They are M. I knew all novel translators are wierd but not to that extent.

Shia Surprise

Gotta say though… I am enjoying it (☞゚∀゚)☞


Yes. Autoerotic carpal tunnel torture. It’s the latest fad, didn’t you know?

Shia Surprise

Shia Labeouf is all about the fads, you need to JUST DO IT!!!!


hahaha imagining the scene with that self talk made me laugh so hard

Shia Surprise

Yea, it went pretty funny in my head too. LOL


Mn us to encourage yranslations… *cheer*

Just A Nobody

WHAT!!! is it then caught up? is it ongoing? was it abandoned by the author.T_T if it isnt how often is it released.


They do 3 chaps a week. That’s much more faster than writing story.


There are currently 215 chapters. It is ongoing. The author releases a chapter about every 2 months. The next RAW should be released in the next couple of days. The next release after that will be toward the end of June.


215 chapters at a rate of 1 chapter per 2 months? When did it become bi-monthly? There is no way it was always bi-monthly, because that would mean the author has been writing it for 36 years.


For most of close to 2 years now. There has been a bonus chapter thrown in once or twice but its been about 2 months between releases for awhile.

When the author started being published the rate of releases slowed down a fair amount as time was needed for the rewrites for the printed book.


Ah right, of course. The published works obviously take priority, and much of the time normally spent on the web novel version would be shifted over.


that is most likely lol


Thank you for your hard word, mranon. 🙂


Thank u always for ur great work…


Thanks for the chapter

Hermawan don

Thanks again for the chapter.


Do you guys seriously have a deathwish?
I mean 100 comments per chapter for 1 bonus and add on another 3 regular chapter per week is pretty much hard, not that I’m complaining though, just concerned and afraid that someone might collapsed due to overwork……..
But anyways, thanks for the chapter.

Honestly this is one of the weirdest and saltiest meat I have eaten so far.
aah childhood….


Just remember it’s considered a delicacy in hawaii…
Thanks for the chapter guys.


and in Korea. It’s just really salty canned ham, that’s all. –


Most unexpected reference in an anime ever –

Shia Surprise

And this is why the Vikings were terrifying .
Haha that was great. First time I have seen Spam in an anime


Yeah, I remember not liking it when I first ate it. It had a weird flavor, bot to mention how salty it was, but I doubt it’s that weird, there are way weirder food out there.

Shia Surprise

What would you classify weirder than spam?
I have eaten canned tamales…. and that was weird.


thousand year egg, canned pigs feet, Surströmming… just trust me, that last one WINS

Shia Surprise

haha I’ve had pigs feet but not canned lol that must be a party size can.
I googled Surströmming…. and I shouldn’t have….
What led to tasting that delicacy?


I’m just going to point out that it says chopped pork and ham on it…

Andy Lau

thanks for the chapter


Thank you.


[…] Slave Harem Chapter 196 […]


Thanks for the chapter I hope you don’t get pushed down by Sherry unless you are into that sort of thing.


To be hones i would prefer Sherry and not Michio (coz not into that sort of thing)


Are You intending to make us write comments until our fingers are broken, keyboards shattered and any ideas for comment in our minds would be spam?


Yay new Chapter! Thanks for your hardwork.


Don’t usually comment, but it’s for a worthy cause. 🙂 Thanks for all your hard work this past (very long) week.

Jack Trowell

Thank you for the chapter. You are spoiling us. ^_^


The author confuses me a bit with Sherry’s ‘cold eyes’ that he keeps thinking he sees. It makes it hard for me to decide whether she respects him or not. Perhaps he’s just a bit paranoid because he believes she’s smarter than him, so hes on his guard.


I think it just when she figure out that Michio has changed something without telling her. I imagine the desire to know burning inside her, but feels it would be wrong to pin him down due to her position as a slave.

Shia Surprise

I would almost say that it is his paranoia getting to him. He is always worrying if they will find out that he isn’t as smart as they make him out to be, currently they prob treat him like they are worshiping him for his power which in turn will turn into worshiping for everything. Its a self-placed pedestal that will crumble.


Michio’s self confidence is definitely lacking… Granted if it were higher it would be an entirely different story. You would think his relationships would eventually help it but it seems to just make him more paranoid. He’s only confident in the bedroom.

Shia Surprise
That’s true, with the sex maniac skill and considering that all of them were virgins; they don’t have anything to compared to unless they were told stories as slaves. If Michio opened up more he would develop as a character/person but if he keeps his mindset the same he will (in theory) fold like a lawn chair when they retaliate (find out he isn’t the great person that he is). Let see how he will grow as a person. If he told Sherry all about his job he would receive so much help instead of doing everything himself. He might… Read more »
Sherry gives him ‘cold eyes’ whenever he makes a mistake that she thinks should be common knowledge that everyone should know. Things like, the bosses of lower floors being the normal monsters at higher floors, the monsters being the same in all dungeons for a level range. As well as when he says something that goes counter to the common knowledge of the world, like the fact that all jobs have levels. He appears to have been fighting in dugeons for a long time (think years) when he has only been in the world for a number of months. He… Read more »
Well, Roxanne was probably the wrong choice for learning common sense anyway, even before she started worshiping him. Just look at her ability to dodge attacks, which she herself thinks is something normal/something everyone should be able to do. She also grew up hunting monsters, whereas most kids (at least of other races) are probably kept as far away from such danger as possible. There’s probably a lot of other significant differences between her life up to that point, and that of the other girls in the group. I think Vesta is probably the only one among them who could… Read more »
All true. She was the best slave for a first slave for him, docile, accepting, OP in the labyrinths, beautiful, etc. but she was way off from the normal for common sense in the world, so he gets to play chicken with Sherrys’ opinion of him to try and learn what is known in the world and what is not. I have to assume that at some point he will mature and settle down and will be able to go over everything he has learned with Sherry. Until then he is going to be the paranoid person he has been… Read more »

You should probably consider it like this:


Let this week be endless!

Thanks for the chapter.



Thank you wery much! Cant live without it any more! >_<


I see your 100 comments per chapter and I bet another 100 more.


It’s kind of funny that how they’re going with 100 comments or more gets a bonus slave harem chapter… and the comments increases by more than 5x to be well over twice what they said lol.


Thanks for the chapter!

I would still have checked the misanga just to be sure, she is still lvl 7 after all.


Rutina feels like she is getting picked on a lot the past few chapters huh.


I expected her personality to be more…I guess Roxanne’s ‘talk’ destroyed all her self-esteem. Another theory is that she works in the slave trader group to ‘trains’ new slaves to be obedient.


Thanks for the chapter,



Huehuehuehuehue the marathon continues endlessly (we hope and pray) all hail the great lord.
Also.. shouldn’t they like… take her to the slaver and have her owner set already?


Why pay the 300? Michio has the job and since Rutina is now obedient he can do it in five minutes when they get home.


Well, they should get to it, and probably also because Michio is weird and becomes weird when it is about things that stands out.


Michio only has the knight job, which shows the intelligence card. To rewrite the owner information he needs slave trader job, which is a higher tier job of merchant.


He actually have the slave trader job at some point


😛 thanks! and… dont die from overwork… we need you alive for more chapters!


We only get to see plating when new members joins. His normal party is too reliable. Wonder how OP he would be if he could stack even more job bonuses than the 7 jobs he has now and the 5 party members. Thus he has a 12 person party seen from a bonus point of view…


If he could spend their points they would have 4 or 5 jobs as well. So a 37 job party….. Seems unreasonable.
Also hero/great hero have HP increase so his levels in those probably make worrying about her low level moot.


Honestly if he wasn’t an idiot they’d all have a ton of jobs and stuff. It was already confirmed that everyone has job points like him it’s just none of them can distribute their points like he can. If he’d take the time he could distribute his party’s job points and get them tons of bonus’s. But for some stupid reason he assumed that in the beginning it’d use his job points to give them bonus’s which I don’t know how he could think that. And he’s just never bothered to test it out.


Greedy is a sin u know 🙂
And he cant use character reset for them ANNDDDD he is to lazy
Anyway why bother himself about it better to turn on SEX maniac.


He doesn’t know if it would spend his points or their points but more importantly, he doesn’t know if he can get back the points spent. If he can spend and refund the points spent then its all good and OP maxxed out party on the way. If he can’t then he either loses the points himself or he might end up locking them into the job they currently have with no way to advance to a higher tier job when its unlocked.

Best to be cautious for now.


thanks for the chapter
hey how many raw chapter out there ? with one day one chapter (if the coment get 100 ofcourse) i think we will chatch up with the raw prety soon


Currently 215, chapter 216 should be out in a day or two, if the author mantains his current rate. Will be another 2 months or so for 217 though.


All hail mranon, airsblue and Takki!!!



Why is there a “d” in inazuma?

(“Speaking of which, I have heard about ‘raimei’ being thunder and ‘inadzuma’ being lightning.”)


Must have more. I’m addicted now.


I really hope the 32-day work week never becomes a thing.

On the plus side, more Slave Harem. Yay! Thanks for the all the hard wok you guys put in! You know we love you, in a manly bromance kinda way…


Came on guys not stop until the 100 comments!!
Thank you for the chapter


Came on guys not stop until the 100 comments!!
Thank you for the chapter


Dammit author, I need to know! WHAT LEVELS ARE THE PARTY?!


They’re all around lvl 40-45. With Michio having lvl 45-50+ jobs and also low lvl jobs.


going to make regular commenters out of us non-comenters


Thanks for the chapter team (I’m sorry)


Thanks for the chapter.

I like your new policy.

Also, will Michio keep rough-handling Rutina much more before becoming her official master? Time will tell.


What am I going to do without my daily need of SH?


Lol, can those two say anything else?
“I think it’s alright.”
I feel sorry for a world with out schooling.
Thanks for the chapter!


Miria and Vesta are like backup singers. They have their chorus and they repeat it when appropriate.


Thanks for the chapter! Good job for translating so many, respect


Thanks for the chapter
