Gamma Ray Burst

I chant the incantation of [Gamma Ray Burst].
I should be able to use it.

I’ll do it.
I should be able to do it.
No, I shall make it work.

As an expression of my resolve, I chant the incantation of the spell this time.
At any rate, I did say to Roxanne and the girls that I would be conducting an experiment.
One point game of confidence. (TN: 自信の一点勝負 No idea if it’s a reference or a proverb. Any help would be welcome)
I’ll definitely succeed.

I’ll never let my resolve go down.
What would happen if it failed?
After all, the chuunibyou me cried such a painful ‘serif’ (lines) out in the middle of the boss room.

The damage received would be incomparable to the Meteor Crash failure back then.
This time, everyone is here.
I’m in public.

Roxanne would look at me as if she has had enough. Sherry would glare at me with cold eyes.
Miria might demand a fish at breakfast in exchange for overlooking my failure.
Vesta would casually console me a bit, surely.
It would shatter the trust I’ve built with Rutina thus far.

The loss would be immense.
Too immense to recover from.
What an idiotic thing have I done?

If I kept my mouth shut, I would never have been exposed.
As ever, I don’t have a figment of talent.
Neither my character nor my ability can be trusted.

Actually, to begin with, Rutina doesn’t trust me in the least.
She was first forced into slavery and then forced by Roxanne to accompany us.
Which part of me can she trust?
What a useless human being I am.

Aah, no. That’s wrong.
It’s the MP.
My MP is low.
The reason as to why I’m having negative thoughts is because low MP.

In other words, [Gamma Ray burst] was cast successfully.
It’s a success.
However, there’s nothing particularly strange or anything.

Speaking of strange, the room has gotten slightly brighter. It really has gotten brighter, hasn’t it?
There doesn’t seem to be any change other than that.
Does [Gamma Ray Burst] have no other effect?

Or, because I don’t have the ability to use it, did it yield no effect?
It’s different.
That’s not it.

“Amazing, desu.”

The monsters have collapsed.
The two monsters, that appeared beside the boss, turn into smoke immediately after they emerged.
That’s [Gamma Ray Burst]’s power.

The two dead monsters look similar to Gummi Slimes.
Can it one-shot the 23rd floor monsters?
The boss still remains, though.
Because it was a dull human who used it? It doesn’t seem I can kill the boss in one hit.

“Vesta, the sword.”

I had done the preparations to open the Item Box immediately and take the MP recovery medicine out in a contingency; however, if it’s just the boss, there’s no need.
The uncool plan of the petty me has shattered.
I close in on the boss from the side after receiving Durandal from Vesta.
And use it to slash the boss from the side.

I seem to be absorbing MP. With every hit, my mind seems to be calming down.
I’m fine.
I can fight.

Miria and a-little-late Vesta join in on besiegement of the boss.
Roxanne is standing the front of the boss.
Sherry thrusts her spear from behind. Rutina seems to be participating in the siege, too.

The boss collapses after only a few hits from Durandal.
[Gamma Ray Burst] seemed to inflict massive damage.
It wasn’t able to kill the boss, but it wiped the small fries. It’s considerably powerful.
I wasn’t able to use it before, but it’s quite useful.

“How was the experimental magic?”
“For an instant, it flashed dazzlingly. The rear turned bright.”
“It flashed?”

Based on what Roxanne said, [Gamma Ray Burst] seems to emit light.
I wasn’t able to see it, though.
Because it’s called ‘gamma ray’, I thought it would be invisible to the eye; however, is that not the case?

“I saw it clearly because I was on the side. It was shining.”
“I saw, too. Michio-sama was shining.”

Because they were in the back row, both Sherry and Rutina seem to have seen it clearly.
Shining, huh?
The light emitted by [Gamma Ray Burst] isn’t actually a gamma ray but a low frequency light. Because the light emitted accelerates to nearly the speed of light, it turns into a high frequency light due to the Doppler Effect.

On the contrary, from my – positioned at the centre – view, the frequency lowers due to the Doppler Effect, disconnecting me from the range of visibility.
It’s a terrible red shift.
Because Roxanne and the girls wouldn’t be able to live if they were exposed to a large quantity of gamma rays, it may likely be not the case.
They are safe because the allies don’t get hit by an area of effect spell.

“To be able to cast such a spell, as expected of Master.”
“I don’t think such a spell has much use. It’s quite troublesome to use. It’s out of question if I cannot use it in case of an emergency.”

Although the damage [Gamma Ray Burst] inflicts is amazing, the consumption of MP is equally amazing.
What’s more, my MP didn’t restore fully even after killing the boss.
In terms of MP efficiency, the winner would definitely be Wizard’s or Great Wizard’s magic.
Although it can one shot small fries, there’s no helping it.

Like [Meteor Crash], it’s not an everyday use spell.
It’s a trump card for contingencies.
I can fight using Durandal, too, in order to recover MP. There shouldn’t be any problem in fighting at the front using Durandal. That said, there shouldn’t be any problem in using normal magic either while Miria and Vesta take on the enemies.
Roxanne needn’t even be mentioned.

“You should definitely experiment if you’re able to use such a terrific magic.”
“It’s troublesome, though, to the point I cannot cast it twice.”

Sherry approves of the importance of experiments.

“Relief, desu.”
“Indeed. I think I feel relieved thinking such a great magic can be used at the crucial moment.”
“You really are as terrific a gentleman as I expected.”

The experiment seems to have impressed Miria, Vesta and Rutina.
It can safely be concluded as a great success.

“Then, before heading back to the 29th floor, search for monsters on the 24th floor, Roxanne.”

Without moving to the 29th floor, I continue on the 24th floor without any change.
After recovering MP, I jump to the 29th floor boss room.

“Rutina, try hitting the boss once in order to get a feel. Even if it’s the boss, it’s not that scary if you hit it from the side.”
“Very well.”
“We have already fought the 29th floor boss with 5 people without any problem, so don’t worry.”

We enter the 29th floor boss room and fight the Boss Taurus.
The battle progresses smoothly.
Because I don’t have Gambler selected, the boss doesn’t get petrified till the end; however, we kill it without any problem.

“I felt somewhat nervous, but I can handle it, too.”
“I look forward to it.”
“Anyways, are you going to repeat this? Ah, no. I should be able to do it, too.”

She won’t need to psyche herself up once she gets used to it.
Besides, Rutina doesn’t stand in front of the boss.
Actually, the one who stands in front of the boss is the one who suggested repeating the boss battles.

By any chance, is it difficult for Roxanne, too?
What’s the possibility of her saying it out of obstinacy?

The boss battles are supposed to be difficult.
I would probably have a hole in my stomach from the pressure if it were me.
Is it painful for Roxanne, too?

Did she propose it because she wasn’t able to look up anymore?
Because she’s obstinate, does she want to look cool by doing something which no one but she can do?
That’s good enough. Take rest already. However, should I really say that to her?

“Roxanne, too, sorry for always troubling you. The boss battles must be difficult.”
“They are? But- thank you very much.”
“If you feel even a little uneasy, please tell me right away.”
“Yes, I’ll do that, of course.”

Although I’m being considerate, there doesn’t seem to be any need for the time being.
She doesn’t even have a clue that I’m being considerate.
If you’re fine with it, I’m fine with it, too.

“How about we fight on the 30th floor once? Rutina has yet to see a Half Herb.”
“You’re right.”

I consult with Roxanne. We’ll try to fight a Half Herb on the 30th floor once.

“You make it sound like it’s easy.”

Rutina braces herself. Well, if you can handle the 29th floor boss battle, the 30th floor shouldn’t be a problem either.
In the end, there was no problem, so we return and repeat the 29th floor boss battle.
There are problems, though.

Firstly, it’s more difficult to petrify the boss without Abnormal Status Resistance Down.
It’s not like we cannot kill it if it doesn’t get petrified; however, the duration of battles increases by 30% to 40%.
The faster we kill it, the more we can repeat the battle.
So, not selecting Gambler is no good?

“Again, desu.”

After going 2-3 rounds without the boss getting petrified, Miria shoulders can be seen drooped.
There’s another problem.
It’s Cook.

The Boss Taurus seems to drop a rare ingredient, chuck flap.
I haven’t seen one thus far.
Today, the Moloch Tauruses haven’t dropped any chuck rib either, so I can assume it’s a pretty rare ingredient like chuck rib.
Therefore, I want to obtain one during the repeated boss battles today.

We will repeat the boss battles until it drops. It’s a way to reach the target; however, what should I tell Roxanne?
Rutina sees me as a gourmand already.
Miria would insist on repeating it, if it were a fish.
As it turns out, I have no choice but to select Cook secretly.

I’d end up with 8 jobs if I attached Hero, Adventurer, Jobless, Grand Wizard, Priest, Great Hero, Gambler, and Cook.
It’s over the limit.
Besides, I’ll have bonus points to spend on an experience points category skill if I select Seventh Job.
With Cook, I won’t have bonus points to spend elsewhere.

The purpose of repeating the boss battles is to gain more experience points. If I selected more jobs, gaining less experience points resultantly, I would be mistaking the means for the end.
I must not lose sight of the goal.
I must not mistake it with the target.

Well, I’ll make the best possible compromise. The Cook will be better for the 29th floor.
The reason being, I cannot get a rare ingredient from a boss if I don’t fight the boss.
The higher the risk the greater the reward.
Or is it different?

Rather than gaining the experience points, I’ll enter the boss room to get the rare ingredients.
The reverse approach.
In the process, I can gain the experience points.

My target is chuck flap.
I wouldn’t deny it if they called me a gourmand.

Then, which one should I remove?
I should be removing Priest first.
I’m fighting the boss battles with the objective of shut-out. (TN: It has been used on many occasions, so it needs to be defined. Shut-out: a competition or game in which the losing side fails to score)
There’s no need to consider recovery.

I select it due to safety-first, of course.
However, if I think about it, I wouldn’t be doing the boss battles if I were particular about danger. Besides, it’s safer to just not enter the labyrinth.
Because I’m beginning to think of the boss battles as daily routine, it’ll be better to consider these preparations as routine, too.

Also, I can remove either Hero or Great Hero for their roles overlap.
I cannot expect Great Hero to level up if I remove it. Because I’m not using Hero much, I can remove it.
I can also use Item Box with Great Hero.
The bonus points would decrease if I removed Hero from First Job; however, it’s within the scope I can manage.

It feels somewhat unpleasant that the next highest job, to be used as First Job, is Jobless.
Well, it cannot be helped.
Because Jobless is a job that isn’t widely known, there may be some benefit of doubt.
If it comes to light, I’ll turn into a gourmand+carouser in Rutina’s eyes. (TN: 遊び人 – Asobinin – We have been translating it as Jobless, but it may also mean Carouser which means someone who drinks excessively. It may also mean Playboy. By the way, gourmand means a food connoisseur)

First, I remove Hero and select Gambler.
It’d be scary to suddenly change everything.
After taking off Hero, I’ll fight once or twice before exchanging Priest for Cook.
And if there’s no problem with that either, I’ll finally remove Durandal, too.

“Have you gotten a little familiar with it, Rutina?”
“I don’t have any problem.”
“Well, don’t relax your guard even if you’ve gotten used to it.”

I use the causal warning to Rutina as an excuse to make the changes then head to the boss room.
Because I have removed Hero, our attack force should drop to some extent.
It’d be so troublesome to explain all the whys one by one, so I decide not to.

“Did it, desu.”

However, before we had the opportunity to notice the attack force having gone down, Miria petrifies the boss.
I can hear Miria’s cheerful voice.
The remaining Moloch Tauruses get petrified as well. Miria has completely suppressed this boss battle.
This follows the moment I select Gambler, huh?

“As expected of Miria. Thank you.”
“Yes, desu.”

Her voice has regained the liveliness.
She was accumulating anger up when she wasn’t able to petrify the bosses without Gambler.
It’s like she’s venting out the pent-up anger after a great success.
I didn’t cast Abnormal Status Resistance Down on the Moloch Tauruses, though. She petrified them on her own.

I take Durandal from Vesta and dispose the petrified monsters off.
If I select Gambler and Miria petrifies the boss, I can select Cook and be done with it; however, I decide not to do that.
I’m not sure about the experience points setting if I switched the jobs in the middle of the battle.
There may be disadvantages, so I shouldn’t tinker with it needlessly.

Thereafter, having confirmed the situation, I decide to remove Priest and Durandal.
Rutina has gotten used to it, too, somewhat. So, from now on, it’ll be a full-scale start.

Yay! Thanks for always posting great translations of Slave Harem! 😀


Thank u always for ur great work…


When read the upper part, the gloom aura is unbearable but I know that is the effect of low MP…


[…] Previous Chapter | Table of Contents | Next Chapter […]


Thanks for the chapter and for your great work!




Thx for the chapter


Thank you,desu!


finally the MC is starting to use the brain


haven’t finish reading and already cough up blood, reason this sentece-
Because the light emitted accelerates to nearly the speed of light, it turns into a high frequency light due to the Doppler Effect.

Ah my poor computer


Yea, that was kinda painful to read…


Yeah… and I had thought more on the line of Victor Vran’s “Nekonomicon” ( )
… without the cats… But a Rainstorm out of Light in all different colours.
The next question is: Can he 1 shot the boss with full MP release?


yes, full MP release would probably 1 shot him, and by him i mean michio.
Remember that low MP leaves him in a state of complete fatigue


He can full MP release the boss just fine, not sure if it will have any effect though. He did use it against human bandit during ambush in the labyrinth and the victim exploded, not even identity card remained. Not sure why he didn’t tell the police about killing the last bandit. He could have told them he was killed first and by the time they started collecting id cards he got absorbed into labyrinth.


I was thinking the same as i read that chapter as well. I can understand his desire to keep ppl in the dark about his abilities but that excuse would have fit perfectly.

He did basically tell them that. The issue it that he could not provide proof of the ID of the one that died and was absorbed. Without [Analyze] there is no way to ID people you meet for the first time. How would he have explained that the one that was absorbed was the highest bounty one? When he turned in the cards and the other guy was brought up he did mention that there was one person with high skills that he took out first but he was absorbed before he could collect the ID card. Without the ID… Read more »

he could have said “i killed another wolf guy who use XX weapon and was strong and bla bla bla” isn’t a proof but still better than nothing … (send 2000 man to search a dead guy bc he don’t talk ^_^)


Even if he did do that it would still not be proof and the Duke would have still had to send the people out to search for him. If there are no more sightings of him after a long time then the Duke would probably conclude that the person Michio killed was indeed the high bounty wolf guy but you can’t work on an assumption of 2nd hand knowledge of a description from a person that had never seen the target before.


Here’s my explanation: Michio is so dense he warps the space around him such that it would seem like light is accelerating as it moves away from him.

…. you seem to have a grasp on the Doppler effect to some degree, but the source of the electromagnetic radiation needs to be moving away. So as I think about it, this could make sense if the GRB is similar to a fireball attack. The ball is invisible (gamma) but whoever it moves away from will see light as it drops through the spectrum to become visible light. To achieve gamma radiation then it only needs to be a UV or X-ray source and the Doppler effect will increase the frequency to the target (achieving gamma) while protecting the… Read more »

Thanks for the chapter ~

We’re you friends with Dr. Banner?


For a second there, I was afraid there wouldn’t be a chapter today. So glad I was wrong!


Eh? Was I first?


Whoops. Guess not. Sorry.


Thanks for the chapter


Is it just me, or is he cautious to the point of being paranoid?


He always was. Remember when he bought Roxanne. He feared for his life because he had suspected she was not really his slave and would kill him in his sleep or so. Paranoia is his greatest problem at the point he would not even tell Roxanne about his secrets even now.


I would like to see how u wont be paranoid if 1 wrong move and you can die and if you bought slave would you trust her fully?? IF you could trust all women you do….. there won’t be marriage for money. Thought it’s true he don’t exploit all his potential but considering he don’t need it(want) and he satisfied with current life (he don’t really want be famous/hero/king etc) i can’t really blame our mc.


Blame author for showing MC iner self too much and MC being normal teenager who have 1 goal to live carelessly withou aiming hight.


[…] Slave Harem Chapter 201 […]


Yay! I love this site!


The number of comments…… it seems to be decreasing steadily. Is it true? Are they decreasing?


It may be, but I think everyone will be able to hold out at least another 14 chapters before buying a new keyboard. 😉


Or a new screen for people like me who read on their phones!


Tragedy of the commons. Everyone assumes that everyone else will comment so they don’t have to. Eventually, no one will comment.


OH so you love pointles spam comments???


Thanks for the chapter!


thank you so much! eeehhh…. remove durandal? what’d he use to recover MP now? hahaha… I thought so. Miria petrifies only work because of Michio gambler. poor Miria..


Not really. She petrified the boss before Michio used gambler’s skill: ‘Abnormal status ressistance down’ . So its her own skill. As evident from this sentance:

‘It’s like she’s venting out the pent-up anger after a great success.
I didn’t cast Abnormal Status Resistance Down on the Moloch Tauruses, though. She petrified them on her own.’


He means he did not use it at the other two minions I think.


It seems he only cast it on the boss, but there must be a party wide effect of some sort as well.


Boss is much harder to apply abnormal condition to. And petrify is a much harder abnormal condition to apply than paralysis. I’m sure boss was paralysed at least a couple times during the fights without gambler, and normal monsters were paralysed almost all of the time they weren’t petrified. I think they should add poison to Miria’s weapon for her to be able to be more independent during battles. Think of poisoned monster getting petrified, it would still be taking damage even after Miria moves on. Also abnotmal condition to lower defence of a monster would be nice.


OOH! Now THERE is a Question! Would a poisoned Monster able to fall asleep? A high possibility and would mean it would die without worries of the party. Now I have a scene in my head where they eat Bento in front of a sleeping Boss while he is slowly dying of Poison. 😀

He had been doing the boss battles without Durandal for some time. For the sake of safety he went back to using it when Rutina joined the party. As Rutinas level was well below the others and there was the risk of her dying to a random blow or double AoE he went with the safest route and spent points on both Durandal and Priest to up the parties power and the safety net at the same time. Since Rutina has, by now, gained a fair number of levels and should be in the 20s at the lowest its probably… Read more »

Thanks for the chapter


Many thanks fore the chapter. BTW at this speed of translation that hardly counts as a delay keep up the (insert adequate adjective) work 🙂


I wonder what would happen if the MC got low MP in bed?


Sherry has some MP pills inside her Item Box


Thank you for the great translations


Thanks for the chapter.
Well the girls need his cheat more than their know I guess.


Thanks for the chapter!






Oh god. Manga physics.
Also I’m surprised he dropped hero before priest.
Thanks for the chapter.


For boss battle at they lv no need more then1priest job for sure ….. as for normal mobs keaping it wont hurt(or higher lv boss).

barbaric Bob

this would have been a perfect april fools chapter with michio becoming the hulk after his gamma ray burst fails!


thanks for the chaps >.<


Thanks for the chapter team on fire as of late.


Thanks for the chapter.

A quick search shows me that 一点勝負 is defined as “buying a ticket for a single winner in a horse race”, which would be roughly as “betting everything to a single result”. With the modifier of “of self-confidence” attached, it should be something on the lines of “I’m betting all of my confidence on this”, perhaps.


Thanks for the chapter ^_^


I wonder what will happen when jobless reach level 50, maybe new class “Lazy king”


Its probably “Employed” after Jobless Lv50~


someone said the actual translation was playboy, but the translators didn’t understand why at the time so they changed it to jobless based on the description.


another day another paranoia festival. I swear, as much as I’m a careful and pragmatic fellow, he really takes the cake. I’m still surprised he pulled off the Rutina force… or should I just credit Roxanne. Is it even legal to force a non-sex slave that way? Couldn’t she turn around and accuse him when its convenient? And if so, he forgets his paranoia for once when it concerns the future noble who is most lawyer-like?!


Is it even legal to force a non-sex slave that way? Couldn’t she turn around and accuse him when its convenient?

Who would believe slave?

or should I just credit Roxanne.

ofc you can YOU MUST

Hardcore Otaku

Feelsgoodman, thanks for delivering my new-found daily happiness. Love you guys


thanks for chapter like always…

Lurking darkness

Sorry after the move to a new site my WordPress no longer makes it easy to comment still lurking tho.


Thank you, nice work as always:)


Thanks, I’m sad that rutina first time is skipped…
I forgot how bonus points works, he got 99 bonus at the start, and if he level up a job he got another point right? Why he don’t select all job? Is there some kind of limitations?


Only first active job gives bonus points. The rest give only their skills and small/medium/large effects.


Think he can only have very few active without spending points to make the next one get active. The cost for the next job increases quickly, a 1,2,4,8 etc cost. (If first one was 1 point.)


He doesnt have enough points.
He need points for bonus exp,less required exp,equipment,chant stuff,etc…


IIRC at max he should have around 149 bouns points. 99 base and 50+ if he uses explorer, hero or mage.

The limitation is that most all of the things that have levels to them max out at 6 steps (Some have fewer then 6). The number of points needed for the next step is either double the previous step or increased by 1 from the previous step. (1,2,4,8,16,32 or 1,2,3,4,5,6) Durandal is the result of Bonus Weapon 6, he can have up to 6 bonus jobs at once. He could also get an Accessory 6 and Armor 6, and possibly other gear at 6 but the author has never bothers to describe what those items are, although we do know… Read more »

Thanks for my daily fix!

keep up the good work!! my apologies but i need to rant a little xD Is it just me or is Michio starting to double think everything to the point of being paranoid. I really can understand some contingency planning for when it hits the fan, some worries about his inadequacies as the leader of the party, but why is he so scared of Sherry. Sure she is the smartest person in his harem and the only one the openly question him when she doesn’t understand something, but that by no means shes any less devoted to him. honestly all… Read more »

Regards to your rant and chapter 201, isnt it because of MP deficiency after using GRB?


no, he’s consistently acting paranoid in regards to how Sherry views him, especially when she starts asking questions about his abilities.


I just wish he would tell them already, I get hes paranoid but i do feel like these kind of stories are better if atleast SOMEONE knows of his abilities, atleast one person T_T

agreed… think all the members of his harem should know… in the end. But he should start with Roxanne, Sherry and then Rutina once she earns his trust. Roxanne deserves to know just by virtue of being the so faithful not to mention being the one he can trust the most. Sherry because I’m sure she will be able to guide him to take the best advantage of his abilities to gain new classes and and better gear once she’s fully onboard and understands what he’s done so far. and Rutina kind of the same as Sherry except for social… Read more »

Sherry because I’m sure she will be able to guide him to take the best advantage of his abilities to gain new classes and and better gear once she’s fully o

You forgot something…. he dont want to take the best advantage of his abilities
and ignorance is bliss you know……

I think the issue is not that the look Sherry gives him are from being pissed or such, its a look closer to looking down on someone and having a lower opinion of them or one of pity. Michio was bullied to the point of not going to school, its likely that the classmates that did not bully him would give him cold looks filled with either pity or distain. This would result in trauma and he is trying his best to keep her opinion of him high as a result. He is simply afraid of being looked at with… Read more »

About Shrey….. reason is simple ITS A PAIN IN ASS TO EXPLAIN TO HER.
Try remember a time he met Sherry and tried to explain something he fast regret it ……. because you need solid evidence or else she accuse you lying.




Intresting Changes he is doing, I wouldn’t want to ever remove hero as the stat buffs are just too good but the skill does over lap with great hero and what he wants is buff from gambler and cook so it makes sense.

Thanks for the chapter!


he doesn’t uses skill other than magic


But the rest of the party does use the bonuses from Hero.


First he want to farm more than leveling atm.
Second yes he use magic but effect goes for all party thought he dmg dealer 🙂


I love you mranon thanks for the chap!


Rutina is settling in nicely, but Roxanne is still best girl


Moloch Tauruses get petrified because of Miria’s cute pent-up face!


Rutina has gotten used to it, too, somewhat.

How about the night service?
Has she gotten used to it too now?


Its only been 2 days since she joined them and the first day she slept on the floor in the living room. Its hard to be used to tsomething you have only done once.


Yap it was allready ok for second go 😛


Ty for the chapter, hmmm I thought it would be fallout


Thanks for the chapter!


Thanks for the chapter <3


Thanks a lot!
Finally! getting some changes to his daily routine 🙂
