Chapter 168 – What Were Ideal Powers in Shadows in My Mind? (Part 2)

Translator: Makisima

Proofreader: Nevermind

I thought it’s lucky that the situation in Oriana was still unstable.

The thought came from a passerby who wasn’t involved.

What does powers in the shadows mean for a stranger?

I had to do something to learn about it.

Then I thought about it and kept one posture unchanged.

Because I was thinking so I didn’t find that something was flying toward me and stuck on my face.

“Heh! ?“

With a sound of “bita”, something touched my face.

I shook my head to get if off my face.

“A piece of paper…maybe it was blown by snowstorm.”

There was something written on it.

I used my fingers to describe the words,trying to read the words soaked by snow on the paper.

[Young man!! Fight for your country! Royalists are recruiting new soldiers.

The Job is simple, all you need to do is to kill our enemies. Even though you have no experience, you will be promoted rapidly with the help of your predecessors.

You will get a valuable job and there was someone promoted to captain in only 3 days.

You can get a pay valuing to thousands of money. The dream of becoming a rich man will come true!? Your future and your status is inestimable there!! Join us, hero!!

*Your abilities will be tested, then we will assign you to the troops that will use your abilities to the greatest extent.

I gripped the paper tightly and made a Guts pose.

“This is what I need!!”

Join our discord and have fun together! 

And I want to thank Nevermind who helped proofread this chapter!

I’m worried about epsilon and the girls! Our Hero needs to understand that things are not so simple if his conrades are scatered doing dangerous stuff without him to protect them!

You should hire a proofreader,translating is work in of itself so there’s bound to be some mistakes you yourself can’t find,so having another person helping you out can perfect the translations.That’s usually what many web novel translators do.

the thing i do Posted on8:52 pm - May 2, 2019

I m not native English speaker too but I can understand what you translate and even beter is you don’t split the part its to short, and thanks for the translating

    Makisima Posted on11:42 am - May 5, 2019

    Thanks for your support. I will try to upload a whole chapter since next time

Man Lil Posted on12:16 pm - May 2, 2019

I can’t read the Raw translates because trying to process the bulk of direct mistranslates makes my head hurt like a stroke. So believe me when I say THANK YOU so much for this TL sama and friends for your work you are good kind people.
(Bro hugs)

    Makisima Posted on11:43 am - May 5, 2019

    Thank you so much!

MadMaxKT Posted on3:38 am - May 2, 2019

Thank you very much for the chapter, just ignore all the hateful comments. But like other have said could you maybe take your time a little and release full chapters? That way it is more enjoyable to read.

    Makisima Posted on11:43 am - May 5, 2019

    Thanks. I will try to release full chapters since next time

“A piece of paper…maybe it was blew by snowstorm.”

It should be:
“A piece of paper…maybe it was blown by a snowstorm.”

    Makisima Posted on11:44 am - May 5, 2019

    Thanks for pointing out the mistake! I will reedit it

Thanks for the chapter.

Darkaeluz Posted on9:27 pm - May 1, 2019

Thanks for the translation, but I wouldn’t mind waiting longer if you could release the full chapter

Tim Truong Posted on7:55 pm - May 1, 2019

Thanks Makisima…i did not read this translation, just happen to read some trash make ungrateful comment and decide to realize who a**hole they are. Thanks for translating for people.

Tim Truong Posted on7:53 pm - May 1, 2019

People who gave bad comment is really ungrateful. Get a free translation and still act like a king. If you really want to get it how you want, why dont you donate something to the site, instead talking bullshit like what you just did?

Nightcrypt Posted on4:06 pm - May 1, 2019

Thankyou for your tranlations..even though there are people who only read and never comment it doesnt mean they mean they dont appreciate the hardwork you have done to translate.. i would also have not commented rightnow but i think people are fully appreciating what you do so i just want say that translate at the pace that you can and take care of yourself take some rest be proud of what you are doing cause this isn’t a postive world where you can get always get positive from everyone…
Oh shit i dont know what to say for empowerment ..well just want say be happy and keep translating at the pace that you can dont let negative comments affect you and let others judge you..👍👍🤣🤣✌✌ i am otaku too

BlackFIFA19 Posted on3:07 pm - May 1, 2019

its kinda sad youre getting so many ungrateful comments, thanks for the chapter and just keep doing you

Gegko Posted on2:29 pm - May 1, 2019

I hate it when you divide the chapter!
Please don’t do it.

Rissira Posted on2:15 pm - May 1, 2019

Can you please just release a full chapter instead of in parts? We can wait for a week as long as its complete. . Reading stuff in parts really takes me out of it. .

Marc Posted on1:52 pm - May 1, 2019

Please don’t divide the fvking chapter
The chapter are already short as it is , if you can’t make it in time, we can wait for a full chapter release.

Bob Posted on1:28 pm - May 1, 2019

Can someone explain what
“The think came from a stranger who didn’t involved in.”

means? is that english?

    Makisima Posted on1:50 pm - May 1, 2019

    The thought came from a passerby who wasn’t involved.

    Sorry for the mistake. I’ve reedited it

AceMin Posted on12:59 pm - May 1, 2019

Is the Royaltists is where Cara is?
I wonder when Cara realizes its her classmate back then……. Hurry Up Cara!

Megumin Posted on12:41 pm - May 1, 2019

Why was this half a page worth of text split into two parts…???

    Ardavix Posted on1:02 pm - May 1, 2019

    Firstly, thank you for the chapter and secondly, I second this question.

      WBeard Posted on1:48 pm - May 1, 2019

      This is actually shorter than some chapter teasers (I checked) so i think rarer full chapters would be better imo.
      And of course, thanks for the chap.
