I Said Make My Abilities Average! 20

Yay, and now we reached the 20th chapter!

With this and the XP Mile amassed from trying her hand at being a mobile artillery, she has leveled up and unlocked the Zantetsuken. Although she should learn to “stop cutting worthless objects”.

 

20 Recruitment

 

Although the middle aged clerk was behaving strangely, he still was a professional, so gradually processed her goods.

The Horn Rabbits and Birds were around 2 silver coins for each one, and due to its pelt, the fox-like animal was worth a whooping 8 silver coins.

Since she had 5 Horn Rabbits and 5 birds, the total amounted to 1 gold coin and 8 silver coins. In Yen that were 108’000 Yen.

This time, the boar added a lot to that, but even without it she would have earned 28’000 Yen. If she worked 30 of the 36 days in a month like this, she would earn the equivalent of 8’400’000 Yen.

 

(I’m glad I became a Hunter!)

Ignoring the clerk in a moment of happiness, Mile suddenly noticed something.

(Ah, I haven’t turned in the herbs yet….)

 

She had put those in her Item box so they wouldn’t decay which led to her forgetting about them. Since they wouldn’t spoil in there she decided to leave them for next time.

If you added the profits from collecting herbs, her monthly income would be over 10 gold coins, 10’000’000 Yen.

 

When she returned to the boy that had wanted to recruit her, he and his group were also behaving strangely.

Some emptily stared into the air while others fidgeted…. Almost like the clerk just now….

 

「Well then, where were we,」

「Hey, you there!」

Ignoring Mile’s words, a man around thirty butted in from the side.

 

「Looks like you can use Storage Magic. How much can you carry?」

Mile got an unpleasant feeling from the man who had forcefully inserted himself into their conversation.

 

「Please tell me more.」

She completely ignored him.

 

「Hey, You!」

「First of all, why did you choose me from all the other Hunters around here?」

「Listen to me, dammit!」

「To speak frankly, I’m smaller than all of you, so haven’t you thought about me being a hinderance to you?」

「Don’t screw with me!」

 

The boy’s party was intimidated by the raging man.

The Guild was already filled up quite a bit since it was evening, but nobody stepped in since this much was still just squabbling. Everyone was entertaining themselves by watching how the new girl would deal with the situation.

 

「You’re noisy, please shut up! You are disturbing our conversation.」

「W-What nonsense… That’s just because you keep ignoring me…」

「Eh? You were talking to me? In that case I’m sorry. Since I didn’t think there existed someone rude enough to just interrupt our conversation without even introducing himself, I was sure you were talking to someone invisible to me….」

「Y-You, don’t fuck with me…

W-Well, let’s leave it like that. But more importantly, I’m gonna add you to my party. Work hard as our packing mule.」

 

「So, what are you guys usually hunting…」

「Listen to me, dammit!」

 

「You really are noisy. If you have something you want from me, wait for your turn. But let me say first that I flat out refuse any person trying to lend me money or trying to hit on me. I also have the right to choose you know… 」

「You Bitch!」

 

The enraged man suddenly drew his sword and slashed downwards onto Mile.

The other Hunters hurriedly tried to stop him, but there was no way they would make it in time.

 

Giin!

 

Gotori

 

Everyone was frozen.

Several Hunters that tried to rescue has stiffened as though petrified.

The man who stood there holding a sword missing its blade.

Mile still in the stance of having drawn her sword.

And the blade clattering over floor.

…It hadn’t broken. The great sword’s blade had been sliced of.

 

「W-Wha…..」

 

Hyun!

 

After having lightly swung her sword, Mile returned it to its sheath.

A moment later the man’s severed metal armor fell to the ground.

 

「Ahh…..」

The man shakily took a couple of steps back before he turned around and escaped in a full on sprint.

Two Hunters quickly followed after him. They probably were his party members.

 

「So, where were we….」

When Mile faced the boy’s group again they were gaping like fishes, so the conversation didn’t really start again.

A Hunter in his mid thirties then called out to the troubled looking Mile

「That sword you have there… Where did you get that?」

 

(Ah, this is bad….)

 

The Hunter didn’t seem to harbor any ill will towards her only showing interest in her sword. But if people thought her sword was awesome and targeted her for it, that would be a problem.

 

「Eh, this is just a sword I bought in a normal shop, it was on a bargain you know?」

「Don’t go kidding me! Not with an edge that sharp!」

 

(Hmm, what should I do…. ah, I know!)

 

「Could I borrow your sword for a moment?」

「EH? No, well, maybe for a little…」

The man then gave his sword complete with sheath to Mile who fastened it to her waist right next to her own sword.

 

「Could someone flip a copper coin in my direction?」

「Yeah, I’ll throw one!」

Among the Hunters that had surrounded Mile out of curiosity one took out his purse and picked a single copper coin from it.

 

「Here you go!」

 

Kiin! Pashii!

 

With a speed too fast for their eyes, Mile drew the sword. Immediately afterwards her left hand blurred through the air.

 

「Here.」

With these words Mile presented the perfectly bisected copper coin to the man that had lent her his sword.

「You’ve got to be kidding me….」

The Hunter was stunned in face of the coin sliced in half with his own sword.

 

「W-With my sword, you cut a copper coin….」

Wit unbelieving eyes the man studied the coin’s remains he had picked up from Mile’s palm.

 

「As you can see, it has nothing to with the sword, there’s just a small trick to it.」

 

(((((Small trick my ass!!)))))

 

Hunter and clerk alike, everyone inside the Guild shared this thought.

 

But among Hunters, asking about another’s past or skills is off limits. Since they couldn’t straight up ask her, they concentrated all of their senses onto Mile.

 

After Mile had returned the sword, she could continue the conversation with the boy who had finally rebooted.

「So, you said something about lacking offensive power….」

「Y-Yes! We are a swordsman, a spearman, an archer, and two magicians out of which one can use Attack Magic while the other can use a little bit of Support and Healing Magic…. but we are having problems when enemies close in on us. So we endeavored that it would be auspicious to complement our arrangement with light-footed sword fighter to suitably fulfill the duty of serving as a rear guard…」

For some reason the leader-like boy forced himself to sound more formal which turned his explanation into something odd, but Mile understood what he wanted nonetheless.

 

「Eh? But I’m a magician and not a swordsman?」

「「「「EEEEHHH?」」」」

The other Hunters in the back joined in on the cry of disbelief.

 

「But then what about that sword and that technique earlier….」

「Ahh, even if magician is not a front line profession, sometimes enemies can bypass the vanguard or you get attacked from behind, right? That’s why I thought that I should be able to at least protect myself which is why my sword play is only half baked.」

 

GanGanGanGanGan!

 

Since a noise came from behind her, Mile turned around, only to find a man looking like a front line swordsman bashing his head repeatedly against a wall. Maybe he ate something bad….

 

Compared to the shocked martial artists, the magicians were relieved.

If a swordsman could use such a high ranking magic like Storage Magic on the side nobody would need them anymore.

On the other hand, an excellent magician that could use sword techniques on the level of a swordsman was glorious fun to them.

 

「I-I’m very sorry…. I was sure you were on the same D-Rank as we…」

「Eh, D-Rank? A difference of two Rank would be hard, right?」

She had wrecked her brain for a good reason to decline the invitation, but now the Rank difference gave her the perfect way out. She had previously thought that they were E- or F-Rank like her, but now she could use this.

 

「Two? Ah, so you were not C-Rank but even B-Rank. Well you can use Storage Magic and combined with that sword play it’s obvious. You do seem quite young though, are you perhaps an elf or dwarf? I really overstepped my bounds there with my invitation, please excuse my mistake….」

「Eh? No, no, I’m just just your everyday normal, average human. I just started as a Hunter yesterday and am currently F-Rank.」

 

Gashan!

Gatan!

Dokon!

GANGANGANGANGANGANGANGAN!!

 

In the background a cacophony of noises resounded.

She is failing so miserably at being average. It’s great.

nekomahjong

She doesn’t fail you know. She’s an everyday normal, average cheat character. (At least she can’t go to space to cook some space kaijuu “yet.”)

AnimeFreak2016

Yeah, no one can top Satou when it comes to casually destroying common sense but still, for her to have even half of his ability (that is how her “average” is calculated right?)…poor common sense-chan.

AnimeFreak2015

Ummm, may I ask from which novel that “Satou” you’re talkin about came from?

Kvetha

Death March is the name of the novel, and if you like this one, then that one will be great.

for another OP novel (with heartwarming comedy) i recommend
The Bears Bear a Bare Kuma

Yes~! Kuma-san and the others are so friggin adorable and I also recommend death march with Satou and his party~ :3

Satou only breaks the common sense of people in his party

actually. Satou could act as “average/low profile ”
while this Mile is only could only claim “i’m average” while wrecking/clamoring her OPness

She doesn’t always fail her cover ups, she actually does succeed in some of her deceptions…. MAINTAINING her facade is the problem.

For instance, she actually does come up with a semi-decent cover for her finger flick of doom later, problem is, she goofs up elsewhere as usual.

EroOtoko

did you mean like when princess carriage almost run over a kid and then she show up to protect that kid with “ultimate shield”?

yeah a nice cover up by saying herself as “Angel’s vessel”

Well, giving reference to the future and untranslated chapter doesn’t quite give others reference on what you’re talking about.

Oh well, it’s quite simple, she builds a slingshot. An overengineered slingshot with carbon nanotubes and titanium bracing. Then she uses that to throw the stones instead of flicking with her fingers. Her team already figured she was pretty damn strong then, so they weren’t that surprised that it took quite a bit of muscle to use it, and there was another adventurer who actually did manage to use it effectively. He ended up getting beaten up by his companion mage and archer though after saying that the slingshot made their jobs useless.

Ved

I can’t even tell if serious.
And yet it sounds like something she would do.

blackhawkrider

all she had to do is ask the nanites (whatever it was called) and tell it to take her to space. It should still be within the limits of “AVERAGE”.

Wozit

It feels like the prequel to cheat guild receptionist would be quite a lot like this story.

Jay of the Void

Could’ve sworn the setup for Cheat Receptionist was that she went through a lot of crap during her early years.

no no no no she is perfectly succeding just it says at the bottom of the story

“Mile, getting herself busted as extraordinary at an average speed.

lmfao TOOOOOOOTTALLY average 😛

what can i say, she likes her absolute SI scales. and her speed is right in the middle of the 2 fixed velocity points…

Isn’t it more like the average between 0 and the speed of thought. (supposedly after than light, if you ever read any Ender’s Game books)

blackhawkrider

Hmmm? I think she is doing a great job at being “ABSOLUTELY” average. Her physical ability and magic ability is the average of all the beings in the world. So she is doing a perfectly great job at being average…

nobody noticed the people that had just entered and witnessing the scene of countless adventurers banging their heads against the wall and the shocked expression on their faces..except for that little girl.

later that night…
some rumors spread in a bar about a witch capable of attacking the minds of people making them into idiots.

and thus begins the journey of the “average” human witch that lacks common sense

MomieIxai
Guest

Hahaha so daamn right, she didn’t even know why the frontliner swordsman and the other hunters were in shock or banging their heads… Before the hunter guild, she was feared because she is apparently the goddess vessel and now a freaking with with no common sense… Amazing!!!! I thunbs up the author and the translator for this!!!

I can’t believe how dense she is. Keep on insisting that you are a very normal human but then go around slicing thick armor and great swords. not to mention a tiny coin right down the middle. Mile you are very normal. yes yes very normal.

Well, half of the speed of light is still pretty damn fast.

doe_maar
Guest

It’s only 149896229 m/s or 539626424.4 km/h

With that speed she can not travel through space and reach other planets. So she can not travel to our universe, she would create so much trouble here that I don’t wanna have her here. Although…….
It could be funny like this novel

Dark Jackel
Guest

Yeah, fast enough to circle the planet (our planet, anyway) slightly less than four times in a second.

There might be side effects of she ever goes full speed… 😅

spoilerproof
Guest

side effects like our planet’s rotation going the opposite way…

Tallywort

Side effects like setting the atmosphere on fire just from her compressing the air in front of her while moving. Let alone any friction.

So some hints/spoilers for people who’s…’annoyed’ at her trying too hard at being average.

She eventually realizes the irony of what she’s doing vs the reason she started doing it and drop her goal from being ‘average’ to ‘not standing out’ (via relative value *hint*)

Doesn’t stop her from showing up to sword duels and declaring herself an “average girl” though. 😀

Kisato

She’s so “average”, it hurts.

But in a good way.

An airheaded Mile. There’s so much air here you have to measure then in Parsecs.

ModoTheGreat

You don’t have to measure it in Parsecs.
You can also count the atoms like an “average” person.

Thanks for d chapter.
Mile’s should use excuse like being train from master swordsman and magic when she is young.. I mean younger.. Then it is normal for a 1st timer hunter to have ridiculous skills… But.. She did not know the ‘real’ average power of a normal hunter makes others feel so weak compare her’s.

Everytime a new chapter comes out I grin to myself. I’m in constant anticipation of the next chapter. Thanks for the great work!

Marmot

Interesting. She has no instinctive fear of a big guy with a loud voice and big sword bullying her. And she doesn’t verbally defuse him (as with Kelvin) either. For all her messed-up attempts at hiding it, I think she’s accustomed to being OP. She couldn’t avoid the fight, but she won it of course. Can’t even blame that on plot armor. I’m surprised, with all that noise in the background at the end, that nobody was laughing. You know, chuckling at the ridiculousness of such a display of power from such a petite, unassuming girl.

Everything about her is averaged between the best and the weakest (as in 50% of dragon power) except for the ability to read the mood…

well maybe is because she got average in that to? If you take in account all thing in the world that can’t know what average mean…. and for dragon, what is average? You need to take in account average for all thing in the world, and average that… so… yop, She is averaged crazy !
