When I come back to the village from the dark side of this world.

“Nii-chan Nii-chan! Welcome back! (Kiel)

A kiel rushed at me the same time as I return to the village.
Recently, when I come back she always greeted me on her dog form.
While becoming a fateful dog.
Originally she looked at me like an abandon dog who can’t trust anyone
And, while half amazed, I lightly pat Kiel’s head.

“I’m home”(Naofumi)
“Welcome back, Naofumi-sama”(Rapthalia)
“I’m home. Rapthalia, where there any changes?”(Naofumi)
“In particular…… just–“(Rapthalia)
“Nii-chan Nii-chan!”(Kiel)
“Kiel, I’m talking to Rapthalia. Be quite a little, or chase a ball, even take care of your crepe tree”(Naofumi)
“Nii-chan Nii-chan! There are new flavors in the crepe fruits! There’s Chocolate Dough flavor and Chocolate Sauce flavor!It’s perfect for Valentines!”(Kiel)

Kiel say that as she completely ignored my words, and to show me the flavor of the crepe fruit.
The chocolate flavored crepe……feels like we rach that point.

“Yes, I was trying to report this to Naofumi-sama”(Rapthalia)

Oh, Rapthalia was also trying to report about the chocolate flavored crepe.
An event that you should really report, or such?
Because well a little change may also lead to problems, it is a necessary thing.

“Hmmn, it is Valentines day”(Naofumi)

I thought that it was possible because there were Christmas and New Years.
And recently, I also heard the story of more business in the neighborhood.
In the story that also slightly raise the price that we bought a lot from that guy, its the perfect season for business.
Accessory merchant, I was excited about the feeling whether that I did business beyond one’s category

“Yes, there is. Everybody in the village and in the neighborhood are talking about it”
“There is the chocolate in this world?”(Naofumi)

Did it reproduce from a plant which is similar to a cacao?
Its like to have been spread by the past Heroes.
….Or other transmigrators.
Its annoying although somehow useful thanks to the efforts of those guys.

“Yes. I also examined the extent, if there are anything like chocolate that grows in a certain area, as for this time of the year its mostly deals with chocolate(Rapthalia)

The tree which chocolate grows on…..
Will it be the finished product?
I think I have heard this being talk about somewhere, I look at the tree the crepe tree and bread tree
I didn’t hear who or where it was created it.
Surely I step on a mine.

That reminds me I have heard such a story.
While I was thinking whether it was cacao, I noticed slightly when I heard words named the chocolate farmhouse.
I sure have a bad feeling about this tree, will really bear fruit to chocolate.
I wonder if the crepe tree is said that there so called crepe farmers………
Honestly, It’s pretty disgusting.

“With, valentines day at the villages what do want to say?”(Rapthalia)
“Nii-chan is good at understanding”(Kiel)
“Oh yeah, I learn it during the time at Christmas”(Naofumi)

Ahaha it was annoying but, it was not a bad feeling after seing that everyone was happy

“By, Valentines its no dout its an event where girls give to chocolate to the ones they like?(Naofumi)”
“Is there any other?”

….Can’t say.
The fact is during this time I use to take advantage of magic event chocolate
There is friend chocolate.
Regardless of real world or the net.
I love whatever event it was! I.

“Melty-chan came over with a suggestion…….with it”(Rapthalia)

Melty is? To meet after a long time.
Or since Christmas? Well, I was sleeping.

“How about selling some chocolate during Firo’s idol activities? Its idea she came up with, we talk about using the income to fund the reconstruction”(Rapthalia)

And, Melty came over along with Firo in her human form.
So it was. Melty is busy with the idol industry and diplomacy with other countries and Firo is busy singing and dancing.
Currently, Firo has the largest income in the village.
Mainly with Firo’s idol activity we will have good sales.
There is a crystal tool similar to the video crystal that can play music called voice crystal.
Well, there is a tool that being sold that can record this like a gramophone and expensive but this cheaper.

“Hn~? Chocolate, it’s sooo gooood~”(Firo)

With chocolate sauce stickily stuck on her cheeks, Firo greedily devoured the crepes. But still, can’t she do something about that pronunciation?

“Handmade chocolate made by Firo-chan with her name”(Melty)
“Firo is to make homemade chocolate”(Naofumi)

I think Firo would be a cuisine eating specialty rather than the making it kind.
In the first place i have never seen her cook anything.
The life of a store man, even if i make it.
Once you have it and eat it yourself.

“Is there……that’s right. However, it is not necessarily need to prove that Fro made it ib particular?”(Melty)
“Indeed, it is so but”(Naofumi)

Melty, in one way or another, you’re also black.
As for the fans, Valentine from an idol they would actually want something made by the person themselves.
Reality might be such a thing.

“I think it would become a good revenue if Naofumi and the children here produced and sold them.”(Melty)
“That isn’t a bad idea. Besides, it looks like I was planning on doing a Valentines event anyway.” (Naofumi)
“Right, right, so with that, can I ask you to do it? (melty)
“Yeah yeah, I got it. So? How are we going to process the chocolate?” (naofumi)
“I was thinking of leaving that to the country’s cooks but, can Naofumi do it?”(Melty)
“Nii-chan. Let me taste it first”(Kiel)
“I can do that ~….. Kiel, because the idea of the chocolate crepe is already good, you wanna jin, in the idol activities”(Naofumi)
“Yes Yes Yes Yes!?”(Kiel)

I’m surprised that Kiel almost dropped the crepe.
Don’t drop it then go crazy again. Ren isn’t here after all.(TN:Refer to chapter 218)

“Why are you surprised? Its a good opportunity. I will it you stop wearing a dress if you beat Firo in sales”(Naofumi)
“It, it is so”(Kiel)

Kiel still don’t like people to see her as a woman…… I forced her to wear a maid outfit and a dress with frills.
Though she takes it off in her dog form.

“Results from peddling is very good. The idol debut is not bad too”
“I, I hate you Nii-chan! I, I can’t sing a song in from of so many people!

With kind eyes, I put a hand on Kiel’s shoulder while laughing in my heart, with the same eye I said.

“Okay Kiel. The idol industry is not to hear you sing, but to show everyone your appearance in singing and dancing, It is work to sell a right to be in the place where the figure can be seen”(Naofumi)
“I feel like the knowledge your teahing is very wrong!”Rthalia)

Although Rapthalia hit me with a tsukomi, would not be wrong.
The song is good or bad it doesn’t matter.

“So, huh? I feel like its different when I see Firo-chan?(Kiel)
“Hn~? Thant right?”(Naofumi)
“Firo is…..different. Idol who can sing costs money, she’s that kind of idol. All idols aren’t the same like Firo. Besides…… It would be boring if its just Firo”(Naofumi)
“What’s that Naofumi! Please correct me!”(Melty)

Firo and Melty mad an objection……….At least idol that I know have disappeared from the industry After 10 years.
The guy who survive as an actress utmost is sublime.
Well, that guy has raw talent.
Not just Firo even Kiel, I can’t make a profit when I don’t make money while I can make money

Because Kiel it seems to be simply popular.
The kind of visitor is different too, its not that I can’t do without.
Or rather, how can you hand over the position of rival.

That place is Motoyasu’s three little……… I suffered from Firo related.
Singing and dancing in the form of a rival, because it is three people, individual personality appears, but can’t overcome a genuine article.
So it’s subtle when compared to Firo.

And yet Motoyasu gains profit, why should I when its not my profit.
….. Well the reason is Motoyasu pours all the profit into Firo.
Well when you consider Motoyasu’s sin.

Lets get back to Kiel’s idea.
This guy also looks good in mens clothes. When wearing womans dress there is a fresh filling.
So dress as man….. It might go well like Takarazuka Operetta Troupe. (TN: I’m not sure if this it

“For the time being……With being a cross-dressing beauty as an exception, want to wear men’s clothing?” (naofumi)
“Being ordered to by Nii-chan kind of feels degusting.” (kiel)
“What, you don’t want to wear them? I think wearing a fundoshi is a bit.” (Naofumi)
“That’s not what I mean! Even though I’ll look like a man, it feels like nothing will change!”(Kiel)

Is that so.
Being sexless and being a man are different.
Although I’m not into making dress, apparently It looks like there are also many layers of interest to subculture in this world.

“Wait Naofumi! Hurry and correct yourself!” (melty)
“If you want me to, you should leave some results. Producer and Sound Manager, Her Majesty the Queen Melty. If Firo continues in the idol business after ten years, then I’ll correct myself.” (naofumi)
“Just you watch!”(Melty)

Well, surely in the end it will be called “Amazing” that’s right.

Firo and Melty are in good terms as usual.
Sometimes it seems that with Melty are singing together.
In this case, the idol has no problem with Melty

But, there’s a big problem with Melty.
Melty is currently her Majesty the Queen of Melromark which became the worlds major power.
Because of the queens position, there are trouble that are missed currently in the idol industry.
Could be seen as less worthy to be Queen of the world.

“For now let’s get Imya to make an attire for Kiel first”

…..It seems like the Dressmaker would know some details about this area.
In a fujoshi-like sense.

“Oh Oh Oh…….. Until Kiel-kun fell prey to Naofumi-sama plan”(Rapthalia)

I groan at Rapthalia’s worries.
I don’t know. This is also for the development of the vilage, and the sake of the world.
Besides……. It’s already something like suffering from a poisonous fang.
If only it could be tame like a dog.

“Uhh…. I hate singing and dancing”(Kiel)
“Okay Kile”(Naofumi)
“In your case, rather than calling it singing and dancing, it feels more like your doing a play. For the choreography I’ll rely on some guys who know about this, as I said you should go with the rhythm as you sell thing during peddling”(Naofumi)
“Is that so Nii-chan?(Kiel)
“Then I’ll, do my best”(Kiel)

And Kiel begin to wag her tail, showing her motivation.
To easy.

“By the way Nii-chan. What about the chocolate”

Kiel together with Rapthalia stares at me.
Rather Melty and the Villagers are looking at me.
Do you intend to still continue the talk.

“I want to know how make a delicious homemade chocolate”

……. So that what you came for.
Oh dear, though it regarding dessert, I haven’t thought the method on cooking delicious chocolate either.
Because it Valentines, the girls of the village will be motivated….. that means.
That reminds me…….there are a lot of friend who want friend chocolate every year.
I wonder if those guys are happy?




“ fufufufufu, then next…. Is me ”

The accessory merchant stands up and ask me.

So, Why do you sound like a villain.

Though the boss is me thrust might be a rough.

You would do what it seem to be the same kind as me.

“ The accessory designed by the Hero of the shield are showing signs of popularity. By incorporating jinx, and creating stylish shape it was easy to spread by words of the tounge ”

Using Calmira Island reference, partnering with my accessory business, has spawned various jinx.

A business prayer for example would be, in coordination with the Chivalrous thieves guild, if you hang that accessory on the carriage, you won’t meet with thieves. Jinx like that are made.

However, when you add guilty couscous to business the effect would be ineffective.

Even sly things like this gets pretty profitable.

Surprisingly people, cherish something like this.

Guys like me usually do not believe in God or visit the shrine on new year’s day, first of all I only participated in the Festival to buy a lucky charm.

The determined effective time of the jinx is one month, I was attacked a few times for my new design.

By making this Jinx, many of the merchants likes to come and buy this accessories.

And investigating the background of the merchants who bought it, the Chivalrous Thief Guild then moves into action.

Coming from a merchant such as myself, to examine and give such judgement.

In the first place in business you don’t willingly speak of such thing during the time of purchase.

Although I’m a terrible villain, what about the Accessory merchant?

This shed rumors of the dark guild, that I control all the neighbourhood.

“ In making new accessories what kind of ore is used? Low quality ones that are in limited areas is most ideal ”

And, I choose a limited ore that is worth next to nothing quarried right in my territory to be use in making accessories.

Only accessories that have jinx can be priced cheap, its the trick to making money.

This alchemy. Though the meaning is different.

It is the dark side of the jinx.

And then, the report of the accessory merchant ended.

“ Is that the end of it ”

“ Hero of the Shield. Yes ”

Then the slave dealer raised his hands.

“ What is it? Wasn’t your report already over? ”

“ Yes. I forgot that there was a request from Zeltbru. Yes ”

“ With what? ”

“ It is concerning about the Firo Real that are being raise in Hero’s territory ”

Now, they are holding a vibrant Firo Real race In Zeltbru.

The special Filorials that were raised in my territory had overwhelmingly surpassed the existing famous wings and were overtaking them.

Tamers and gamblers sometimes come to meet with me, I have ask Motoysau to be around.

Well half is like cheating. Also no one can imitate.

So I have no Idea.

“ The results of the Firo Real that was raised by the Hero are too good, we might have to separate the race in different categories and an examination will be held ”

“ I wonder ”

No normal Firo Real are a suitable match against the mutation called Firo Real King and Queen that I raised.

It can also transform to look like a normal Firo Real. Not like theres an examination.

And winning races is easy, its inevitable it can’t be help.

“ Rather, it would be better to put it in a separate category ”

“ If its from the Hero, then your words would be followed. Yes ”

“ It can’t be helped. Besides, it going to create more buzz than a normal Firo Real race and everyone will be excited quickly. I’ll allow it if you give me a share over here ”

“ Thank you! Once, my clan get together, we would like to give our thanks to the Hero of the Shield ”

All of the slave merchants clan!?

I remember how the two uncles look exactly alike!

That means the whole clan management, the meeting of look alike might starts to gather around me!

“ Your, your clan is also busy. I, would feel bad about it ”

“ Its a pity. Yes ”

And well, the meeting proceeded without any problems.

“ ….. ”

During the meeting the Chivalrous Thief was listening with a discontented look.

As I feel like the force has gone missing from my shoulders eventually the slave dealer and accessory merchant left. (TL: I need help on a better translation)

“Whats the matter?

“No, apart from,”

“I see?”

That reminds me I wonder if the name of this guy is the cost?
It was kinda Rowdy? I don’t remember much.
Previously, I have been calling his name the Chivalrous Thief, because the impression is in relation to the name.

“Well, I’m good it’s nothing I”

Words were muttered to me as the chivalrous thief murmuringly open his mouth.

“Not such a reason……”
“I also think this chivalrous thief guild has become big ……”
“Oh, if you say so.”

The past when a wave hadn’t occurs…… phoenix game that is older than six months.
Just half a year at least.
In such a short period of time, I think that it is something that has become big.
As result during the time when the the world was in conflict, it suddenly became huge now that its peaceful it is an important organization.

“I too was getting anxious to become …… And rapidly increase in leaps and bounds.”
“I see.”
“I’m now, in a position to serve a friend, to do well as a boss …… I need to remove his anxiety”

Hmm …… This I think I can understand.
Before the wave I did prepare for anything except remove anxiety.
Even if I think I made the best use of the situation its not all intact, sacrifices are made.

Much like the position of the hero who saved the world.
People praise me, and cast words of thanks.
It’s not only this world. Much like the world of glass.
Everyone is the same, as the hero who saved the world everyone comes over to us with strong appreciation and expectations.
The times to color the earth with blood at long last were over.

And because I ended such dark times, it cannot be helped.

It isn’t a bad feeling to be relied upon, but the pressure is also correspondingly heavy.

At the same time, this guy’s feelings can be seen.
At this point its better to get along, even I have anxieties.
I was originally just a college student. Although somehow force to become the Hero of the Shield, from this time its not just voilence.
Although I relied on the power of the shield until now, it no longer needed.
If that happens only with the title of hero who saved the world, that a colledge student can also do accordingly.

Receiving the title of Duke during the time remaining in this world, also held land in accordance with the title.
When you control a big land, obligation to protect the people who live there come out naturally.

Confronting monster head on, I’m the hero of the shield that protects peoples back.
As the position and power grows, also at the same time the responsibility increase.

Becoming rich you also become awful, and eat lots of delicious things, make a harem.
Talk about how simple it is, but at least the case about me, lot of troublesome responsibility follows it.

The thing should have uneasiness.

But, that’s why I can also give advice.

“Don’t you show or tell your subordinates about your troubles?. There are a lot of guys here who are willing to takes over your anxiety”
“My ears hurt degojaro”

Shadow who sent out the slave dealer and accessories merchant joins in the conversation.
What? Does shadow also understood the darkness of the country?

“Since the poor people hide in the Chivalrous Thief guild, the action of subordinates is monitored one by one degojaro. The other day we  also got rid of the person who has failed in an attempt to orchestrate the plan to become the boss degojaro”
“…… Oh”

There are alway gonna fools who aims for the top this here is the law of the jungle.
Oh well its kinda funny.

“Well, Letting those stupid guys who are resisting should attack me directly with my wagon . Disposal would be easy.”

This one that is yearning for the chivalrous thief is probing a dangerous bridge and admiring it. That identity is a dangerous opponent and connect to the underground……Even if they were to think that, they probably won’t confirm it. Even for confirming it, here we have a shadow with high hiding and sensing ability so it’s closer to impossible. At the level a mere thief, it’s difficult.

And now, the lvl of the Chivalrous Thief is raise to 150.
When people are in danger they fought to reach lvl 40 to release the class up to protect themselves from the waves.
This means that 100 is the very limit the public is currently accustomed.

Of course now the Hourglass of the Dragon era was  returned to the administrative state because of it you cannot easily class up.
Although temporary, not anyone can do this thieves together also have over 40 talented professionals.

But, I allowed this Chivalrous Thief to break pass the lvl limit.
Lvl reset is made to punish others.
Horribly strong boss with his subordinates
In fact, combat sense aside, I push the limit to have a high Lvl as possible.

“I know that. Its just…… I’m scared”
“Probably not uncommon you were slaves hunting just one year ago? You can try to make rules for such things, or explore and control  the dark guild, so it is not too large. What If you lose.!”
“I’ll just physically shut you up”

You think now we can do it.
For example, if the dark guild sent assassins to us for being a dangerous element, all the Heroes in Zeltbul get onboard and threaten that they’d crush the dark guild itself.
After all, to negotiate a minimum of force is required.
As such justice without force is powerless.

I will not be struggling if war disappear just by talking it out.
The times without war, there was a dispute Even contemporary Japan who was my original.
The economic war, is a nasty war that does not exist where the dead are not visible.
Even After all this, establishing things like a large country inconveniences and tariffs, limits are made, and, for argument’s sake, if the tariffs aren’t made understood, it would probably become a physical war.

“Anyway, me panic Na, it is arranged to follow me if something happens. While You’re the boss here, also my subordinate of the hero of the shield. I’ll protect you if you do that you do just fine.”
“is that so …… I see”

While to say that, the face of the Gentleman thief is quite gloomy.

“…… Or maybe, Was original thief business is more carefree?”

To my question Chivalrous thief nods.

“Just using it was easy. If something happened, it was fine if you ran away. Thinking only about yourself, you would pursue your own pleasures. Days of just that, I miss them sometimes.”
“Do you want to come back? No, do you want to get a honest job? ”

If that is true, I’ll also have to think about dismissing them. In the age from now on, if we appoint them respectable jobs, living won’t be particularly difficult. If the person himself doesn’t want to do it from the bottom of their heart, making them do it isn’t a good thing. Well, in cases like that, I just bribed them by letting them eat some Katsudon. However, the chivalrous thief just shook his head while keeping a troubled face.

“No, it is but there are thing I robbed, its …… and be grateful to handing out to troubled people, happy. Work itself is not a bad”
“I see.”

I think it will be a challenge for this guy?
Although I think, that it will be a big pressure.

“The family left behind in the countryside …… though I think its a good thing …… maybe, but this is a bad thing. but, it is also a good thing. But I think you understand, that its worth doing. ”
“It is because I Chivalrous thief. Its a guy doing good things by using bad thing such as the chivalrous thief”

There may not be a person to correct the good deeds.
Those that are rotten to the core are the ones that slip through the rules and bad things after all.

…… Is it me? I don’t know.

That’s why chivalrous thieves judge villains that even the public can’t judge and save the weak. Our situation is a bit different but, it’s the truth that we also have guys that have been saved by that.

Even so, bad things are bad things. That truth doesn’t change.

But, if this guy’s worries aren’t wiped away, even we’ll be troubled.

Let’s see. I guess we should stimulate the pleasure of those that are moving behind the scenes.

“Even if you understand it, although the world is saved there are still villains. even if ten years has pass one hundred has has pass or even a thousand years has pass………. it will continue as long as there are people”
“Even there are many people like you who have a hard time getting something to eat and became bandits, but there some people who will continue even if they have enough food, clothing and shelter”
“Among guys like that, there are also guys mixed in that even we heroes that saved the world can’t do anything about.”

This is a fact.
Because I do a bad things I can judge it, it is quite difficult.
If one wrong step it could be the beginning of a dictatorship.
Then the advanced of the future is going to be in dystopia.(TN: this is dystopia
“Such the world of parasite, It is only you that I can judge a hopeless person”
“I, only?”

Anyone can do that you don’t even have to be a Hero to have honor.
It would be another kind of pleasure.

“That’s right. Those that judge villains that can only cross their arms and watch, even if they’re heroes, are chivalrous thieves, that’s you.”

There might not be any consolation to this degree.
“Well, hang in there. unless you make a serious blunder.”
“Oh, oh!”
It seemed to me, that the Face of Chivalrous thief is getting better than before.
Well, It will be such a thing.
Now, you can either go back to the village.
Gentleman thief opened his mouth and believe such.

“Hero of the Shield sama, reminds me -“
