Chapter 42

A bright forest that wouldn’t run out of the sunlight through the trees.
That was the impression that the Forest of Magic gave me.

The Ma (魔/demon) in it made you misunderstand that it would have an eerie appearance, but this is only a forest that had monsters that used magic.
(9: 魔 ma , this word is kinda a bit confusing to use, other translator translate it as demon or magic, but I prefer using magic, it means kinda both like evil and magic, kinda associated with witchcraft, i’d like to explain it more but it will be too long)

「Ah, there is a mushroom growing here.」

There was a mushroom that looked magical due to its pink umbrella with a light blue random pattern on it, growing at the roots.

Trying to pick it up, it seemed to be an item as it was put in the inventory.

《Magical Ta-ke(mushroom/茸)》 (9: the magical is in kana マジカル)

「Why is a kanji in its name?」


『Ain’t that a magical ta-ke』

『↑…..I see, what peculiar sense』

『I shee』

『Its normally a rare thing』

「Eh, this is a rare item?」

Looking at the watcher’s comments, I looked at the description of the item.
「Being able to contain magic, it gained a peculiar change in color.
A rare mushroom that is a material for making magic medicine」, was written.
At least in the flavor text, it seemed to be rare.

I wondered what a magic medicine was.
Was it a different item from potions?

「For now let’s pick it up…..Ah, but it’s growing quite a lot.」

Maybe because my field of vision was good, I saw that there was the same thing growing here and there.

It was good timing to fill my inventory since it was kinda empty, so while I explored the Forest of Magic, I gathered them up.

「Funfufun….Oh, it’s a monster」

While I was wandering around the forest while picking up mushrooms, there was one butterfly flying in my vision.

It was a big butterfly, around 30 cm.
It was called 《Butterfly・ Magi Lv 22》, so it might be quite a strong one.

The butterfly magi was flapping its wings as it danced in the air and then suddenly, there was a magic circle drawn right in front of its body, and then an ice magic was released.

The speed was around that of a soccer ball being kicked, so it was not like I couldn’t avoid it.

Just that, thinking that it might be fine to try and take one shot, I received it without guarding.

80% of my HP was blown away.

「Are you for real!?」

Certainly, my magic resistance was destructively low, but I was a lvl 30 Kijin.
Even though regarding HP, I had way more than average, 80% was blown away.

And moreover, it was obviously not a strong magic, it was just a magic that shot a ball of ice.

Quickly refocusing, I closed the distance between me and the butterfly magi.

While properly avoiding the incoming lump of ice as I closed the distance, with an irregular movement, I put a fist into the butterfly.

With a one-two tempo to stop its movement, I grasped both its wings and did a knee blow, and then, letting it float in the air, I did a heel drop on it, smashing it into the ground.

Fortunately, its HP was not that high, and with just that degree of a combo the butterfly magi was defeated.

「I’m glad that it’s size was small.」

『Good combo….I guess?』

『You really are weak against magic』

『It was my first time seeing that much damage from receiving an ice ball』

『↑Was that called ice ball just now?』

『↑Its an ice attribute magic’s beginning magic』

『Were you panicking seriously just now?』

「Well, I panicked just a little bit.」

The reason why a lot of players didn’t choose 《Douji》, I understood it from coming here.

Even for just a beginning magic, it was that fast and then there was also that damage.
And moreover, there should be stronger area attack magic with high power and speed as well.

And still, if you came to this place at around lvl 20 then you would without a doubt be sent respawning.

No matter how many bonuses《Douji》 gave, this encounter made me understand that if you were told that you were going to get hit by magic then all you could do was groan.

「For now, I should drink the potion I bought from the tea house…」

I drank two of the potions that normally tasted like herbs.
The empty bottle remained in the inventory.

Since I passed Haruru most of the money I had on hand, I used the money that I gained on the way to the Forest of Magic, and I bought a potion from the tea house at the entrance of the Forest of Magic.

I didn’t think that I would end up using these shops near the entrance but it couldn’t be helped.
After taking a break to gradually restore my HP, I once again returned to exploring.

Hmmm, but still, becoming like this from beginning magic, then it was all the more strange that I had received just a wound from Apocalypse yesterday.

To me, receiving that first attack, I didn’t really know what had been done to me.
Totally being unable to see it, my stomach was pierced.

I thought that the spear of light that came later in the battle was the same thing as that, but after the attack from the butterfly magi earlier, it was obviously strange that I was able to survive it.

At that time I thought it was magic that was specialized for making you lose body parts but…….I didn’t get it.
After all, it was just a meeting that happened in just around one minute.

While pondering the new mystery that was revealed after coming here, since I wouldn’t be fighting Apocalypse now either way, I stopped thinking about it.

According to a well-informed watcher, the butterfly magi itself was actually one of the monsters that had a high magic attack.
That was why, even if I was hit by the same spell as earlier from the other monsters, I wouldn’t receive the same degree of damage.

However, there were monsters that could use stronger magic, so I concluded that I should just evade all magic.

That was fine and all, but…

「T-this is bad!!」

Right now, I was in a big pinch.

It started about five minutes earlier.

After an hour of exploring as I filled in the map.
I was getting used to dealing with the monsters using magic, mainly the butterfly.
Since I believed that my victories were assured by this point, I lowered my guard.

「Ah, look at that.
It’s a monster that’s really shining…….it looks like a fox but I wonder what it is?」

In the middle of the exploration, on a level beyond just being bright, there was a fox that was beaming in the midst of the bright forest.

Stealthily closing in, its name, 《Shiny Fox Lv 5》, was displayed.

Thinking that it might be some sort of really rare monster, while my heart was beating, I prepared my throwing knife.

Since the power of the throw basically depends on the strength, I judged that even with the low attack power of a throwing knife, I would deal enough damage to defeat the shiny fox because of our level gap.

Even if I couldn’t control it in detail because of the gauntlets, it was not that difficult to throw it straight.

Carefully, and carefully.
I threw the knife towards the shiny fox.


My plan certainly worked, my knife prettily pierced its neck as it shaved off its HP.

Since I hit its throat, its scream was short as it collapsed.

At that moment.

The shiny fox that was shining with a bright white light, at the verge of death, scattered a red flash to the surroundings as it disappeared.

「I-I wonder what that was right now…?」

While I was a bit surprised, getting the results of the battle, I received so much experience that you wouldn’t think it had just been a level 5.
It was so much that it was enough to raise my level.

And adding more to that, I also got 10,000 iris.
It was a reward that you wouldn’t think it was from a level 5 monster.

「I see, so it was a bonus monster.」

Being happy from leveling up and making my wallet swell, I honestly brought out a smile.

And then, seeing two butterfly magi that appeared in my vision, I immediately switched gears.

Two of them were a bit troublesome.
While thinking that, I readied up my fist, and then on the side of my vision, there were another three more butterfly magi.

Having a bad omen, I instantly looked behind me, and then, not only was there a butterfly magi, but there was also a 《Goblin Mage》and a《Magical Matango》 included, the forest’s normal mobs were spawning one after another around me.

Noticing it, they were at the center of where the shiny fox died, and then, by the end, there were around over thirty monsters that had spawned.


In that rather hopeless situation, I unintentionally muttered those words.

What brought me to this situation was, no matter how you thought about it, that shiny fox.

Its last light was most likely some kind of skill that called out monsters.

That one was not just a rare and high experience monster.
It was literally a trap.


I messed up.
When I thought that, the battle had already begun.

The five ice balls that were released as the first shots were coming towards me.
