Let’s Prepare to Go to the Center Layer!
[The Road to becoming a Noticeable Being]
‘In the Garage Dungeon…!?’
Hello, Air here(^o^)
It’s been a while, but we explored the garage dungeon today(^ ^)
As we had already gone up to the 8th floor in Chikaho, we were able to travel from the 5th to the 8th floor at an incredible speed!
And on the way, we found eggplants!
I haven’t had eggplant in a really long time(>_<)
I grilled it and ate it.
It was so sweet and juicy and delicious(^ ^)♪
And then we reached the 8th floor!
The monster on the 8th floor…was a melon!!
We considered going home, but ended up hunting so many of them(>_<)
There were orange and green types of melons.
I crushed the orange one and put it in the freezer.
I’m going to turn it into sherbert.
And I made jam out of the green one!
I’m going to eat it with bread. (>_<) I’m really looking forward to that.
Tomorrow, we’ll be heading to the 9th floor of the dungeon.
And then we’ll finally reach the center layer!!
In order to accomplish that, I have to get stronger and stronger!(>_<)
But I did a lot of leveling up today!
Now, surely I’ve taken another step closer to my future of being noticeable? Right?

I just saw Aerial coming out of Chikaho.
They looked beaten up.
235 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
Didn’t they go off to deal with a monster parade?
236 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
They must have tried.
Or maybe there was nothing they could do.
237 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
It’s probably both.
Monster parades are not a good fit for popular weapons.
Even Aerial would have trouble.
238 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
I guess Masatsugu is the only one who could get through while using a popular weapon?
Also, maybe Shigure?
239 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
Among those with popular weapons.
240 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
What do you mean by that?
Who else could get through it…maybe Bacon?
241 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
Yeah, I think Bacon might be able to do it.
But there are others too.
You know, like that massive pervert who got through a monster parade and a stampede.
242 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
The masked guy.
I think he used daggers.
Those are good for monster parades…
But it’s hard to imagine being able to kill monsters with daggers.
243 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
I’m talking about the masked, monster carrying, tentacle guy.
244 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
What a power-up!
Is he a monster? I can’t stop laughing. Lol.
245 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
He’s not a monster.
He can talk!
246 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
Some monsters can talk…
247 Name: Kagemitsu★
248 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
Did you fail in the monster parade today?
249 Name: Kagemitsu★
We’re lucky that no one died.
251 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
Are you serious…
I thought with monster parades…
They scatter if you just leave them?
Why did you go hunting?
252 Name: Kagemitsu★
There was a boss.
It was gathering the weaker monsters.
I doubt they would scatter.
253 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
Was it a precursor to a stampede then?
254 Name: Kagemitsu★
If left alone, it might turn into a stampede.
255 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
Haven’t there been enough stampedes and monster parades recently?
256 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
I think they’re like volcanoes. There are seasons where they are more active.
I’ve checked other local boards, and they’re saying the same thing too.
257 Name: Anonymous Searching for Crabs in Chikaho
I didn’t know that at all.
So, what should we do?
Aren’t all the strong people in Shinjuku?
258 Name: Kagemitsu★
We’ll just have to chip away at them.
By the way, this monster-carrying tentacle mask guy.
Tell me more.
The next day, Haruki saw the same trio making their way to the dungeon in the early morning.
It didn’t seem like they were going to do anything in particular.
They seemed normal, if not just a little nervous as they looked at the dungeon.
Nothing about the way they looked suggested that they were about to cause trouble.
They had helped protect this town as well.
He didn’t want to look at them suspiciously.
And so Haruki observed them from far away, without any suspicion.
They checked their weapons calmly.
And when that was finished, they went down into the dungeon.
Apparently, they were struggling against the house centipedes on the first floor. How were they fighting them?
Haruki was very curious about that.
He had encountered quite a few Adventurers while in the dungeons.
However, he generally tried to avoid them.
Even if you felt no hostility towards them, they would always be wary of people trying to steal their prey or materials
And so unless they were in danger, it was considered good manners to just keep your distance.
Of course, that was mostly outside of Chikaho’s 1st and 2nd floor.
And so Haruki did not have many opportunities to watch other Adventurers fighting.
And that’s why he was curious.
How did they fight the monsters…
And so he followed after them.
Of course, he wasn’t wearing the mask.
He had to erase his presence as he didn’t want them to notice that he was there.
Though, he kept Conceal at a minimum so that the skill level didn’t go up.
After advancing for some time, the men encountered some house centipedes.
They immediately prepared for battle.
Their reaction was pretty quick.
As Haruki watched them, he was impressed with their reaction speed.
It was wonderful.
He couldn’t help but rate them highly.
However, once the battle actually started, he started to see their weaknesses.
Their greatsword and bows only scratched the carapaces.
The greatsword swung too wide.
The arrows shot too slowly.
It wasn’t that their skill level was really low.
They were putting up a decent fight with the house centipedes.
However, as someone who had reached the 8th floor, Haruki couldn’t help but notice their mistakes.
So, this was the difference between Adventurers who were on the 1st and 8th floors.
Upon witnessing this unexpected difference for the first time, Haruki couldn’t help but be surprised.
Would he also look this sloppy to Adventurers that worked on the center layers?
This difference between the 1st and 8th floors.
The difference between Haruki and the rankers would be even bigger.
I still have a long way to go…
He wouldn’t look down on them or be proud of himself.
In fact, he mostly just felt sadness about the gap between himself and the rankers.
