027 New Item
Support the Author by opening this Link in new tab!
At the end of the week, I’m going to Bryut firm to check its state.
Recently the slaves seems to be more familiar with hospitality, and the majutsushi slaves fail less in the production of magic items.
In other words, the business feeling is staying on track.
Then, today is the day to teach the sla
ves about a new magic item that could constantly deploy a defensive barrier type of magic.
Since the barrier that is being deployed by the bracelet is colorless, and has a space-time attribute magic, it’s decided to leave it to the slave that has that attribute magic.
Lock and Jamon were begging to include them in the development of the new item enviously, they at last back down when I said that I will use them for the next product.
While Julietta is finally getting used to her job.
Julietta and Seruka have a nice attribute compability so aside from water ring production, having Seruka as an aid for the new item will be hard in terms of capacity.
The sales are favourable, in a day we could get 190 thousand S.
While monthly it exceeds 5,7 million S, if I convert it in Japan’s Yen it would be 57 million Yen. (TN: 1 $ US = 104,~ Yen so~ calculate it yourself)
028 Unit Completion Test
Well then~ please say hello to our new Editor! Theoccasionalhermit-san!
Edited by: theoccasionalhermit,Bullistic
(Bullistic: Hey guys! Welcome back from summer break. Hope you enjoy!)
「I’m not amazing with arithmetic, ・・・but I want to get the Junior completion unit off of it so I will do my best！」(bokukko)
「I’m relatively okay with arithmetic so I think I’ll take the Intermediate completion unit. However, unlike Carla-san I’m bad with magic history」(Peron)
「If I’m not wrong Christoph-kun applied for 5 courses right？Arithmetic, History, Magic History, National Language, and Balmus Language isn’t it？Are you applying for all of them at the Advance level？」
「Yes, I’m planning to get the Advance level grades. However, since I never learned about Monster Science I intend on taking the class」
「Ha~a, receiving a graduation pass will be easy huh・・・I too will take the Advance level test after a year so I will work hard. Right, Peron」
「Un, I’ll work hard！」
Everyone is on edge because the unit completion test is during the 4th month.
Since the 30 people in class 1 are at the top, it is made up of the unit completion test students.
Especially the ones who have motivation in them.
Since I was planning to take 5 courses of the unit completion test, my 4th month will be full of tests.
There’s a unit test in every subject that has [Junior・Intermediate・Advance] levels. We as the students of the Royal Magic Academy need to complete 10 courses of Advanced level units to graduate.
Moreover there’s a need to first complete the test at the Junior level in order to be able to take an Intermediate test, in case of getting the Advance test, I need to pass the unit test of the Intermediate level, so since I need to complete 5 courses, that’s mean I need to complete 15 tests in order to get the completion units of those courses. (TN: in short he need to take a test 15 times in a month…)(ED: That’s what, 1 test every 2 days? I’d die doing that…)
It’s surprisingly hard.
It is hard for us, the students, but I heard from Chrisnan-anesama that the teachers don’t have a leisurely time either since they need to grade the tests immediately and have to stay up for a few days.
The students have a lot of trouble but the teachers have an all out war with the test papers.
Since the 4th month is like this, there are no lessons during that time.
Even though I say there’s no free time, after the students have completed their tests, even the easiest ones, they would be given free time.
At the same time, 1st years are prohibited from Clan activities.
In order for the 2nd and 3rd years to receive their unit completion tests they can’t take care of their 1st years so, 1st-year students’ clan activities will only be approved in the 5th month.
The unit completion tests were carried out at least once a day.
I am taking 5 courses so there are days when I don’t take any tests and there are days where I have to take 2 tests on the same day.
The 2nd week of the 4th month is the time to take Junior grade tests, while the 3rd week is for the Intermediate tests, and the 4th week is for the Advanced class completion tests. For the others, the 4th week is rest time but for me it’s a full schedule until the 4th week’s end.
Even if I say so unless I pass the Junior and Intermediate tests, I won’t be busy during the 4th week.
2nd week, the Junior unit completion tests were done.
The test result was posted the day after.
I’ve passed the 5 courses and got the qualifications to enter the Intermediate tests.
Carla passed her History, Arithmetic, Magic History, Balmus Ancient Language and Demon Science tests, but the tests that she took for the Intermediate class were only Balmus Ancient Language and Magic History.
While the 6 subjects that Peron took – Arithmetic, History, Magic History, National Language, Balmus Ancient Language, and Geography – were all passed.
And the Intermediate tests he took were Arithmetic, National Language, Balmus Ancient Language, and Geography.
3rd week, all of the Intermediate tests were done and the results were posted.
I’ve passed all 5 courses safely, and Carla has passed her 2 courses too.
However, Peron fails his Balmus Ancient Language course, but he still passed his other 3 tests.
Thus, the 4th week has begun.
Carla and Peron weren’t challenging any Advanced tests.
I’d be taking the Advance tests of Arithmetic, History, Magic History, National Language, and Balmus Ancient Language but as expected, there’s a small amount of 1st years.
I think it’s okay for Carla and Peron to try it, but they said they didn’t have enough energy to do that. (TN: well… for 3 week continuously take an exam… that really will make me drop out… on the 1st day lol)(ED: I’d probably give up education all together…)
By the way, the blonde rolled hair 3rd Princess also took the Advance test.
(TN: this kind of roll hair heh heh heh sorry for the late description [https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/arAeRJnk2liO-ED4bzQD6ukvVV41Y3PQIrLT0cP42gku5WK6D-VpOLFGqHhJtK51xGVgRp-0lfoIh_2CiumUwKz9OToi7QhJ5G1xZy4SiimAh1A_mJdhTx7lmxtt2hqzEvkfbiAe sauce: ladyxbutler (google image)] )
I seem to remember seeing Bakabon during the Intermediate tests, but I don’t see him in the Advance ones.
Thus, the result of Advance tests, I’ve passed 5 out of 5 courses.
「I can’t believe you actually took 5 courses！I don’t even dare to take an Advanced test…」
「As expected from Christoph-kun」
「Blow up, you graduate!」
Without thinking I replied to Carla’s comment.
Bloom-sensei says, I got in the top 3 from the results of the 5 courses, and got praises from the ill-mouthed Bloom-sensei.
If Bloom-sensei was a young woman I’d probably feel very happy but, from the old man Bloom-Sensei I got only a normal happy feeling.
Then, after all the results were posted, I received「I won’t lose next time!」words from the Princess.
It seems that the Princess took 7 courses but only passed 3 courses in the Advance tests.
I don’t think I’ve got any responsibilities for those results, but somehow the hate-to-lose Princess looked cute.
Hence this and that has been done, I can fully prepare for the duel.
Until now I’ve been preparing many things, but as expected because of the exams my focus got astray.
It is something that I hear from Chrisnan-anesama but, it seems that the turmoil of the duel has reached many students, so much so that even the Student Council needed to take a stand to divide the spectators.
Thus, Chrysnan-anesama said・・・
「Slaughter that fool!」
Those type of extreme words. (TN: ain’t you gonna do that?)
Father too, it seems that Bakabon has become Bryutzel clan’s sworn enemy.
It seems that father especially hated that guy’s parents.
「Even though just signing a duel with Crystoph, he deserves the capital punishment, if he dares to even put a wound on Christoph I’ll drop him to Hell myself! 」
It is a little overprotective but I’m a little happy.
But, Chrysnan-anesama’s eyes were frightening.
If the new item launched I think it will get busier but, because it takes time to create the item and the high material cost, there won’t be many that will be sold.
After all the bracelet itself is a piece of silverware and it is created with an unusual attribute of space-time, it is decided that it will be a premier good.
「Since a Bracelet of Barrier needs a magic crystal as its power supply, we need to provide a magic crystal at a regular interval. The Bracelet of Barrier is priced at 200.000 S while the barrier magic crystal is 50.000 S. There will be a discount if the customers buy the scope of the products」(TN: I’m kinda bad with something like this… 障壁の腕輪には魔力供給源として魔結晶を使っているので、一定間隔で魔結晶の販売も見込める。障壁の腕輪は２０万Ｓ、障壁用魔結晶は５万Ｓで販売をするけど、この２つは値引き対象外の商品とするから明記しておいてほしい)
Although Bryut firm has a discount for a certain amount of purchases, these 2 goods will be excluded in it because the things themselves are expensive.
「In addition, explain how to use this Bracelet of Barrier and that the item itself will wear out in about 5 months. Tell them to exchange the magic crystal every 4 months. Ah, It’s alright to not tell them about the 5 months. And there’ll be a manual how to use it in the box. And note the serial number」(TN: in other words he told them to explain how to use the item without a need to tell the customer it will wear out in 5 month, and just tell them to change the magic crystal for the next 4 month.. I think)
Since the Bracelet of Barrier uses a magic crystal as its power supply, it will need to be exchanged every 6 months.
If one were to ignore these things it won’t be our problem if the magic crystal’s mana depleted and the item can’t be used.
「Serial number ‘0’ will be used for demonstration. Clamp, try to slash me using your sword.」
It’s impossible for a slave to hurt it’s master, Clam is hesitating.
「It’s alright, try it. It’s an order」
At this point escort knight Primera should stop this but, but I order Clamp to do this.
It should be alright if I give it to a slave to prove it’s function but, it would be best to demonstrate it on myself .
Because there’s no other choice, Clamp comes to m
029 Combat Courses
Say, There’s a side chapter before this that is hard to translate(for me) So, I’ll do that at an unknown time, and just play with the main story~ by the way, It’s the story about Goresu (peron’s parent’s restaurant)~
Month 5 Day 1, from now on the lessons will resume, and the practical courses will begin.
The one in charge will be the homeroom teacher Bloom-sensei.
He is a former Court Magician with the triple aptitude of Advanced level Darkness attributes and Intermediate level Ice attribute and Junior level Water attribute.
Bloom-sensei needs a wand, so do the students, but I don’t need it.
I don’t need it but, just in case I held one too.
It’s normally a hindrance though.
「First thing to do is form a party of 3.・・・Alright, it’s been formed right. They’re the friends that you’ll leave your lives to. Because the things that could happen outside the school are unknown, you guys need to form a party of 3 to keep yourself safe and coordinate with them to overcome various difficulties」
Bloom-sensei loosened his grin and looked at the students, then he took out a 50 cm cane of wood that is imbued with jewels.
「From then on I need each party to show me their magic for the credit. Any Junior magic is alright. Remember to cast a good magic 」
Thus, Bloom-sensei put forth mana into the wand and a barrier was set up over the entire ground.
It seemed that the wand was a magic item that can put up a barrier.
Still, I think a magic item that can put up an Intermediate barrier must be extremely expensive, it isn’t Bloom-sensei’s personal belonging right?
「I’m(Boku), not really good at magic you know. But if it just at a Junior level somehow it’ll be alright・・・」
Carla’s aptitude in Fire is Advanced level so I think it shouldn’t be a problem for her if it is just Junior level magic.
「I think if it is Junior level it’ll be alright somehow or another. But if it is an Intermediate class it will be hard to say」
Peron’s aptitude with Wind is Advanced level so it’ll be alright too.
「If it Christoph, then it won’t be a problem to unleash Junior magic right?」
「If it’s now, it’s easy to unleash a Junior magic. However, from my first day of training, I needed 6 days to learn magic」
「 (boku) I too have heard that it took 6 days・・・」
The 2 of them seems surprised.
Carla needs 2 months or more while Peron needs 3 months or more.
(T/N: It’s their learning period, just in case you guys gets confused~ their learning period to cast spell that is~)
「Everyone seems the same huh？」
「As if！(konna wake aruka!)」
Carla-kun, I hear it even if you don’t scream.
「Hey there, it’s noisy！」
Look, you make Bloom-sensei angry.
「Next is you guys. If you’re that energetic then create a pleasing magic for my eyes! 」
Isn’t that weird? I’m not some sort of entertainment to please your eyes you know.
「Hey, let’s go」
While grumbling I pull the 2 off.
Bloom-sensei adds in「Do it to the extent not to break the barrier」.
Hahaha, I won’t do it for the admission test.
However, he adds again「Don’t forget that it has to be pleasing to the eye」even I start to think that it is Bloom-sensei huh.
Now then, how should I do it eye catchingly・・・
「Carla cast a Fireball, while Peron, please cast a Whirlwind.」
「It’s ok but, what’ll you do？」
「The 2 of you please do it at the same time. You’ll see it later」
The 2 catching their breath and took the same timing in casting and nodded at each other.
『Devote a little mana, Create a little fire, Burn the thing ・・・Fireball』
『Devote a little mana, Create a little vortex of wind, Blow the thing・・・Whirlwind』
At the same time, the two spell cast I used a spatial magic『Constriction』to compress space.
Thus Whirlwind and Fireball that was being compressed in the space combined into 1・・・and became a Fire Tornado and flew to the scarecrow.
The vortex of fire like a pillar of flame shot towards the scarecrow and burned the scarecrow.
Oh, it’s an improvisation but the thing goes well huh.
The entire thing that was used is Junior level so it won’t be a problem.
The fire tornado is a spell that is created by using 2 Junior level spells so, it’s creating a prowess close to an Advanced level magic.
Carla-kun and Peron-kun are surprised.
Fufufu, how about it, now it’s a trinity attack of 3 magic！
While thinking that my head was hit by Bloom-sensei.
「Didn’t I tell you to not break the barrier! A little more and the barrier will break you know!」
「It’s because I’ve adjusted the power so it won’t・・・」
「With that, you’ve suppressed the power・・・you(omae na)・・・」
I’ve suppressed the power so as to not break the barrier, the magic that was being used were all Junior level too so it’s already pleasing to the eyes right?
I’ve completed the request, right?
With my feelings transmitted, Bloom-sensei say「Mattaku (for god’s sake) ・・・you passed, go to the back」with an ‘I give up’ mood.
When I get back「He really is using no chant・・・to make it combined」I hear that and I end up using no chant, I don’t want to no chant it but the things were already happening so I take no care about anything anymore.
It seems that I’ve getting far off from relaxed life・・・
By the way, Fusion magic is normally present, but it could only be done after many years of learning magic and experience, it’s a skill that only certain people could do.
The thing that I did was to forcefully combine the magic that Carla and Peron cast.
・・・If Rosalia-dancho heard it I think she’d say「What the heck did you do！」.
The ones who pulled it off were Carla and Peron still holding hands and dozing off, but the other student that saw it still was in a daze.
Aa, Ojo-sama, and Bakabon stared me in a different way.
The other party has shot off their magic but, maybe because the impact of our party’s magic that it doesn’t get charged up.
By the way, Ojo-sama uses Ice ball while Baka-kun uses a Fireball.
However, Ojo-sama’s main aptitude is Light but she’s using an Ice ball.
Perhaps Sorcery (majutsu) uses a force while Magic (mahou) doesn’t use force that much.
Sorcery’s prosperity is currently high, huh.
Then Carla and Peron said・・・
「「What did you do（desu ka）！」」
Because they pursue it, I will teach them secretly about Fusion magic. After that Carla fainted.
DON’T FORGET TO OPEN THIS AFTER READING TO PAY YOUR RESPECT TO THE AUTHORS!
e while swinging his sword.
Although Clamp sword swingings towards my left shoulder, the sword is stopped around 20 cm infront of me by a colorless barrier.
「This Bracelet of Barrier is created by space attribute magic. If it is just an intermediate class magic it can defend against it. I’ve already tested it many times so there’s no mistakes about it. However, in case of an advance class magic there’s a possibility that it will be destroyed. I didn’t write about the advance class magic in the manual but wrote it as just “a strong force may break it”」(TN: in case you forgot it, like me. It goes like this Junior > Intermediate > Advanced> Hero > King > Emperor > Overlord > Spirit> God )
With my inspection there won’t be any problem withstanding an advance class magic but, it will be a hassle if it is destroyed by an advance class magic, by some circumstance it could be destroyed even by an intermediate class magic so it should be alright to write it as a powerful force.
・・・I myself am thinking with a mindset of a Japanese person – that is how I think.
Everyone is nodding at the description, so the explanation time has ended.
「Fillia, I left the things aside to you. I will go to the dorm after going to the mansion」
「Yes, please take care」
When I came back to the mansion, Mother greeted me.
There’s no nostalgic feeling nor lonely feeling to me since the admission day when I first went away.
But mother’s face contained glee and happiness while looking at me.
Even though she’s pregnant, is it alright for her to be so active?
Because father is in his work room while I’m here I’ll see him too but, the thing about my duel with Bakabon is already known to father.
「Don’t be too excessive. If Cecilia knew, she’d be worried about it・・・」
「Will there be a chance of victory？」
It seems that instead of being angered by the duel, he seems to be more positive towards it. (T/N: huehuehue, another political side coming… *sneer*)
「Rather, I find it hard to find a losing element in it」
「fuhahaha! souka(Is that so),souka. Then beat Brennan’s little bastard to smithereens. Beat him thoroughly, so it won’t leave any future trouble!」(TN: I starting to like this oldman… lol)
Father seems to hate Marquis Brennan thoroughly.
It seems that large nobility had many things huh.
I mean, Bakabon’s father might be a bigger fool than his son.
「Is it really alright?」
「No problem! His father is often neglecting His Majesty and only approaches when something is in his self-interest, and that child has many bad rumours around him. Open those traitors eyes and let them see! Whatever happen we’ll protect you 」
The normally gentle father became this radical・・・ he seems to hate this Marquis Brennan too much huh.
「Thank you very much」
「However, keep it a secret from Cecilia okay. Because this is an important time for her」
I’ve received father’s permission.
I’ve received more permission than I thought I would but, with this I could beat Bakabon thoroughly.
Huh? I am not living relaxedly you say?
Well, I’m not really interested in sharing my personal view of things but, isn’t it important to dispose of an uncomfortable thing that will disturb my chillin life with my friends, right?
hahaha, let’s leave it at that!
「In addition the sugar workshop that you promoted has been completed. After that I’ve gotten approval from His Majesty, and bought the production rights of your castor sugar for 10 million S 」
About the castor sugar, father demand for it too, at first I did have an idea to have the production rights for it, father then established the rights at a quick pace.
It’s an obvious fact, but because castor sugar is a thing created by my magic, and the manufacturing workshop construction is something that’s created by a majutsushi(sorcerer)’s magic circle, the personnel deployment has been completed.
However, I never though that I will get a permission right from His Majesty the King.
It is something that I created myself so even if there’s no rights or someone that wants to complain about me monopolizing it, as long as they don’t know how to create it, it will still will be me as the one who monopolizes it.
Father held transfer rights to me that still need my signiture.
「I understand. Then henceforth Bryut firm will sell the castor sugar for 3000 S each pot, While the other firms will need to pay ７０００Ｓ～１００００Ｓ for wholesale」(TN: don’t really get it 「解りました。では今後はブリュト商会に１壷３０００Ｓで上白糖を卸して頂き、他の商会には７０００Ｓ～１００００Ｓで卸す事でお願いします」)
*Scrible scrible* and there’s the signiture, with this Bryutzels margrave’s house will have it’s own castor sugar manufacturing workshop as it’s domestic industry.
E, there’s too much of a difference with the price in Bryut’s firm?
Castor sugar is a money tree that is priced at 10 million S in it’s manufacturing, moreover it’s something for households, according to it’s price it’s normal for it to receive super special treatment. (TN: damn this sentence after another… 上白糖なんて金のなる木の生産権をたった１０００万Ｓで譲渡するんだし、しかも一族だし、価格的に超優遇があって当然じゃん。)
N, Violation of antitrust laws you say？ Those kind of laws are not in this world！ If there is something like that then His Majesty’s approval won’t be recognized. (TN: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_antitrust_law)
「I’ve called the other 3 households about castor sugar manufacturing. Finally including our house there’ll be 4 households that’ll carry out the domestic manufacturing of the castor sugar 」
Monopoly on wealth will receive envy, if there is another 3 households then the envy received will be less, eh.
There’s no oversight huh.
「Thus that manufacturing workshop will need 4 machines. 1 piece of machinery will be purchased at 1 million S, so please create 4 of them」
「Yes, thank you for the order」
The central part of the manufacturing workshop will divide between the extraction of the portion that will be used for the castor sugar, and the one that won’t be used for it.
Because the central part of the machine is a black box that’s created by my magic circle, it has been written as a mechanism that could only be created by me, so it could only be purchased from me.
Aside from the central part, father needs to pay for the other things for the workshops, but it will profit me from those 3 other households.
By the way 1 machine has been sold to father. (TN: so the machine is the black box, while the central part is the bigger size of the black box in the workshop)
When I ask father, it seems that castor sugar’s production has been requested by the nobles from the south, west, north, and eastern parts of the Sacred Vandamme Kingdom.
Aside from the house of Bryutzels margrave house in the capital and the south that is Bryutzels margrave home territory, production of castor sugar is forbidden, and anyone trying to recreate it will receive a punishment from the kingdom.
At the time I want to take a rest, my duel with Bakabonn was spreading.
The duel will be carried under the supervision of Bloom-sensei, the date is month 5 day 3 afterschool, after the unit completion test period has ended.
Moreover, not only within 1st year, the rumour is spreading to even 2nd and 3rd year.
「What is happening so that the news is spreading this far?」
「Warner is the one who spread it. Because he know that Christoph-kun is sickly just last year, he spread the news because he thinks that you don’t known any mahou(magic) and majutsu(sorcery) 」
「E？But didn’t Christoph-kun use a magic that could be marked as a pass in the exam that even could blow-up the building？」
Carla’s information revealed my darkest part to Peron. My plain(jimi /地味)’ SP shaved. (TN: guess it’s somekind of Spirit point/social point? Don’t really get it myself….)
「About that, he spread it saying that it was done using a magic item’s prowess！」
「・・・I though in the magic test only magic books are allowed？・・・besides isn’t the usage of magic items allowed in a duel？」
「after hearing that・・・he really is stupid huh」(TN: pfft! Sasuga Bakabon!)
The duel condition is 1 vs 1, while other things are allowed.
While I think that if anything’s okay in a student’s mind, that Bakabon seems to want to get bulldozed eh.
Where did his self confidence come from？
Is it perhaps that because of his father is a big noble that he has some sort of magic artifact？
I don’t want to get negligent, I should get everything ready in case something happens.
