by defeating Nocturne, didn’t you? How did it work?”

“Oh, I haven’t seen it.”

“Because Melty came to her… before she could….”

<↑I see.>

I have the rare skill [Ravenous Wolf{Garou}], which was dropped by Red Wolf Aria.

I am sure that Rou, Drago, and at least the players who MVP defeat the named bosses can usually get the rare skill.

And this time, Nocturne also dropped such a thing, and as a matter of course, it goes to me, the MVP.

“Let’s see… it said the rare skill [Shadow Wolf]…….”

“Heat Haze…?{Kagerou…?}” {tln: same pronounciation}

“Oh, it’s {Kagerou}[Shadow Wolf], which was written by kanji Wolf and shadow.”

I corrected Kohaku, who clearly seemed to be mistaken in her perception, and confirmed the details of the rare skill.

Skill [Shadow Wolf] {Kagerou}

Classification: Rare

Cool Time: 24 hours

Duration: 20 minutes

While the skill is in effect, there is a 50% chance that the following effects will be activated.

The player’s HP consumption will be nullified.
In addition, when the nullification by this skill occurs, the player’s Strength and Agility status will be increased by 2% from the value at the time of the nullification.
The maximum number of times agility can be increased by this skill is 20 times.

If the player is killed during the activation, the penalty time is doubled.

Activation keyword: “Moon Shadow, be my Retainer!” {translator was hit by 10000 chuunibyou damage}

There is no proficiency in this skill.


“What’s that reaction? Let me see.”

“Oh, here is it.”

As instructed, I projected the menu to Kohaku, Haruru and the viewers can see it.

Kohaku nodded a little and read the skill effects while Haruru said, “Ohh……”

“If it works on poison and bleeding, the effect itself is pretty versatile, but this one… it’s clearly a skill to enhance [Ravenous Wolf].”

“I agree.”

[Ravenous Wolf] is one of my trump cards, the effect is like this.

Skill [Ravenous Wolf] {Garou}

Classification: Rare

Cool down time: 24 hours

Consumes 1% of HP every 3 seconds while the skill is activated.

Increases Strength and Agility by 50% while activated.
Decreases the values of Robustness and Magic Defense by 50%.

Disables any recovery effects while activated and doubles the amount of ongoing damage (poison, bleeding, fire heat, etc.) over time.

If Death occurs during the activation, the death penalty time is doubled.

Trigger Keyword “Fang of the Wolf King, Devour my enemy” {I changed the keyword from the previous one, this sound better right?}

Release Keyword “My hunger is no more.”

Proficiency does not exist for this skill.


The Ravenous Wolf takes 1% in 3 seconds, that is, up to 300 seconds …5 minutes.
Instead of losing 100% of all HP, this skill gives a 1.5x strength and agility buff to the final status, taking into account any buff status at the time of activation.

This skill time was limited by HP consumption every 3 seconds.
And Shadow Wolf probably could nullify this.

The description of [Ravenous Wolf] says “continuous damage (poison, bleeding, fire heat, etc.)”, but the description of [Shadow Wolf] says “continuous HP consumption effect”.

Conversely, I don’t know if [Shadow Wolf] can nullify so-called damage over time.
The description seems to imply that it could, and I think it might be possible, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up too high.

Anyway, if these two skills are activated at the same time, the expected effect time of [Ravenous Wolf] is doubled.

Of course, it depends on luck, so at worst, it may not trigger even once, and at best, it may trigger a lot more.

So this is the reason why [Ravenous Wolf] did not have a specified effect time, maybe because it has a skill that can be used in combination with other skills like this.

< I’m not sure how to explain it.>

< I’m not sure if Sukuna would understand, either.>

< I’ll tell you since Sukuna probably doesn’t understand, too, a 2% increase over and over again 20 times will give you roughly 1.5 times the original amount.>

“Ughh… Haruru, do you know what compound interest is?”

“It’s when interest is added to the interest and it snowballs.
…… let’s say I lend you 10000 Iris… with 2% interest, it will become 10200 Iris….
…and with compounding interest, the next 2% is not calculated using 10,000 iris, but using 10,200 iris.
So the next time it will be 10404 iris… in short, it will be 4 iris cheaper if you didn’t use compound interest.”

“Oh, that’s easy to understand.
The next one is 10404 iris with interest, so you save about 8 iris, right?”

“That’s right….
you can do the math better than I thought…..”

“I can do simple mental arithmetic.”

The reason why she changed the word “iris” from “yen” to “iris” is probably to make it easier for Kohaku to understand.

I got the gist of how [Shadow Wolf] works, it will start slow, but in the end, it could buff my strength and agility up to 1.5x times if I use [Ravenous Wolf].

“The expected time for full activation is once every six seconds during [Ravenous Wolf], which is roughly two minutes.
It takes time to build it, so it’s a bit hard to call it a trump card, but if the effect at its maximum is multiplied, it could give a tremendous buff.”

“It’s a good bet….
if you know how to use it……”

“But The Death Penalty continues to get heavier and heavier.”

“fufufu… especially if you count that hairpin, should you die, you will receive total 8 times the normal death penalty.”

Haruru is right.
If I die while [Ravenous Wolf] and [Shadow Wolf] are in effect, combined with the effect of [Lone Moon Camellia], I will receive a 2 x 2 x 2, a total of eight times the penalty time.
Or maybe it adds up to 6 times.

But the death penalty itself is not that big of a deal since it was shortened tremendously in a major update…

“I’m sure you’ll have enough strength for now, so I’ll give you the items you need.
I didn’t give it to you in the Nocturne battle because it’s quite valuable and a deleterious drug.
…… Well, to put it simply, it’s a secret potion of the Oni that temporarily increases your physical status by 1.5 times.”

Kohaku handed me a bag containing about three candy-ball-sized pills.

I know I said it nonchalantly, but didn’t Kohaku just say something outrageous?

” Is there’s some catch to this medicine?….?”

“Of course, there are side effects.
When the effect wears off, your defense and magic defense status will be zero for about 10 days.”

“I’m okay with that level of side effects.”

“We’ll use all the means at our disposal.
And as for the battle with Melty, I’m going to take the opportunity to observe.
Of course, I have no intention of interfering.
I simply want to witness the battle of the world’s greatest hero.”

I nodded to Kohaku’s words.

Melty is indeed the world’s greatest hero.
There must be many NPCs who would like to see her fight.
In the real world, it would be like having a professional athlete come to coach a school club.

The end of the battle between Melty and I would be a one-sided slaughter, but the process leading up to it would be worth seeing.

“I’m sure it will be worth seeing how it goes down.
It’s reassuring to know that Kohaku is here….
Oh, what about Haruru?””

“I’ll pass… Please review how you feel about using the Teardrop Weapon later….”

“Roger that.
Thank you for coming, Haruru.”

“I mean… it’s fine….
we are good friends, aren’t we….”

“Yes, of course.”

I wondered if Haruru and I were that close, but, well, she is probably the friend who is most often involved with me, except for Rin-chan, for sure.

After that, I handed over Ouma for maintenance, just in case and the three of us discussed tactics and items for the upcoming battle.
Afterwards, Kohaku and I parted ways with Haruru and headed for the training hall.


By the way, if you defeat the Named of the Wolf King familia, you will collect rare skills to make [Ravenous Wolf] stronger.

Tl note:

Just so the reader know the right pronunciation of Sukuna’s skill

Ravenous Wolf = Garou

Shadow Wolf = Kagerou

I want to use Garou for Ravenous Wolf, but I will change too much since it was something I inherited from last translator.

[Thorough Warfare]  I still cannot decide on the proper name.
At this rate, I will use its kanji…

What do the original kanji mean? It means a war that you will fight until your last drop of blood, something that says that you won’t stop until you’re dead.
