I Don’t Want to Work…!

 

“I don’t want to work.”

I was being summoned into another world. Well, when I, Masuda Keima, was asked for my only condition by God, that’s how I responded.

“… Umm, what did you want?”
“A life that I wouldn’t need to do anything would be good…”
“… Even if you’re reincarnated as a tree or something?”
“Oh, that’d be great~”

God sighed with an amazed expression.

“You know… were you listening to what I said when I asked for your condition?”
“Eh? What was it again?”

I think he was talking about the mana circulation and something about monsters, but I wasn’t really listening.

“In your original world, could you have researched something like a golem? Doesn’t that fill you with motivation…?”
“Eh? Hahaha, not really. Students nowadays might be like that though.”

Being able to make a maid robot that I could leave everything to and live in comfort is my dream.
This God already figured out I’m a failure after I only spoke a few words, wonder what he’d say to me if I told him about my dream?
By the way, I actually did mess around with looking into thirty centimeter ready-made robot kit that could move at school. Make it myself? Too troublesome…

“Yep, time’s up… it was a special chance, but I’ll try asking the next person.”
“Heeeh…”
“Well, I’ll just make you able to understand languages. Also, if you work hard I’ll give you a proportional blessing.”
“I don’t want to work…”
“There is magic in the world you’ll be reincarnating into, but I don’t believe civilization has developed to the point where you won’t have to work. Besides, you being summoned probably means someone wants you to do something.”
“I want to go home…”
“Well, do your best yeah?”

My vision was enveloped in a bright light.
Like that, I was summoned into another world.

“A-alright! The summon was successful! … Eh, wait, a-a human!? Why!?”

I don’t know what sort of principle was behind it, but I appeared in a room whose walls were shining a pale white.
Before my eyes was a loli wearing a white dress. A cute-type little girl that lolicons would covet.
I prefer them grown up more though unfortunately, sorry.
… As a foot fetishist, they’d have to have on knee socks though.

“Why… why’d such a weakling come out even though I put in all of my DP…”
“… Can I sleep?”
“Eh—”
“Can I go to sleep? Oh, is there a futon?”
“I-it taaaaaaaalked!?”

The heck. She’s still yapping even though I said I was sleepy.

“Ugugu, what, I didn’t hear anything about a gacha monster talking! … Oh right, it’s a human huh? Maybe that’s why it’s talking?”
“Oi, whoever you are… you’re giving me a headache, keep your voice down.”
“Oh, u-un… Wait, what’s with you!? I’m the summoner, you should be listening to what I say!”
“Oi, little girl… where’s your papa and mama? I’d like to go home.”
“Who’s a little girl! F-fine, you’re a monster summoned by a Dungeon Core! I’m going to work you until you die!”

Dungeon Core… monster… yup, I don’t get it. I was summoned, so am I a hero or something?

“Hey, hurry up and head out to slaughter those bandits! I sunk a full 1000 DP into you so you’re actually pretty strong right!?”

She just started talking about something dangerous, oi.

“Right, I’ll listen to you for a bit, so speak. What’s a Dungeon Core, what are monsters, and what’s this dee pee thing? As for being summoned… I get that part.”
“Oh, what, maybe it’s smart since it can talk? Maybe it’s a mage-type… well, it’s fine. This is my dungeon.”
“A little girl Dungeon Master…?”
“Hmm, you know about Dungeon Masters. But there isn’t a Dungeon Master in my dungeon. Ah, if I had to say, I guess I’m the Dungeon Master?”

I obviously don’t know this world’s Dungeon Masters are, but I imagine they’re something like the ones in fantasy games.
But, Dungeon Core… in other words, it’s the heart of the dungeon. This little girl is…?

“Rather, you said humans are weaklings, but aren’t you a human?”
“I’m not, it’s just that my appearance is a human’s… wait, what’s with that ‘you’!? Call me master!”
“Ah, come to think of it, I haven’t asked your name huh. What is it?”
“Mine? It’s Dungeon Core No. 695.”

A number? Talk about cutting corners… well, if there’s a No. 695 I guess that means there’s at least 694 others. If that’s it, naming would be one of those things that gets skimped on.

“Got it, Rokuko.”
“Huh? What?”
“Well, it’s hard to say Dungeon Core No. such and such, so I decided that your name is Rokuko. Your full name is Dungeon Core Rokuko. Ah, I’m Masuda Keima.”

Rokuko, formerly named Dungeon Core No. 695, looked at me and started to saying something.

“Huh? Mahsewtah Kehma? … Is that a nickname? Rather, what are you going and deciding on your own–”

[Naming received, a Master has been acknowledged.]  

““Eh?””

I don’t understand what’s going on, but that’s how I became a Dungeon Master.

 

Old, Mistranslated Version

“I don’t want to work.”

When I got summoned into a different world, rather, after Kami-sama heard my only condition, he answered me, Masuda Keima.

“… Umm, what did you want?”
“A life that I wouldn’t need to do anything would be good…”
“… Even if you’re reincarnated as a tree?”
“Ah~, that would be great~”

Kami-sama sighed with an amazed face.

“That’s… why did I listen to your condition… will you hear me out?”
“Eh? What is it?”

Though I think his story was about the circulation of mana and something about monsters, I wasn’t really listening.

“In your original world, could you have researched something like a golem? With that, doesn’t it fill you with motivation…?”
“Eh? Hahaha, not really. Though there are some students nowadays like that~”

Making a maid robot to live my days in comfort, that was my dream.
Though if I told Kami-sama about such a dream, he’d find out I’m a useless member of society.
By the way, I did mess around with studying something like a thirty centimeter ready-made robot kit that could move at school. Make it myself? Too much trouble…

“Okay, there’s no time left so… though it was special, I’ll ask the next person.”
“Eeeh~…”
“Well, I’ll just make you able to understand languages. Oh, be sure to do your best since you have my blessing.”
“But I don’t want to do anything…”
“Though there is magic in the world you’ll be reincarnating into, I don’t believe civilization has developed to the point where you won’t have to work. Besides, if you are summoned purposely to do something, it might be just what you want.”
“I want to go back inside…”
“Well, do your best.”

My vision was surrounded by bright light.
Like that, I was summoned to another world.

“A-alright! The summon was successful! … Eh, wait, h-human!? Why!?”

Though I don’t know by what fundamental law, I appeared in a room whose walls were shining faintly in white.
Before my eyes was something called a loli wearing a white dress, a cute girl that lolicons would covet.
Though since I prefer ones more grown up, sorry.
… As for my foot fetish though, with her wearing knee socks it’s not bad.

“Why… such a small fry despite putting in all of the DP…”
“… Can I sleep?”
“Eh—”
“Can I go to sleep? Oh, is there a futon?”
“Wha-whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!?”

This guy. Even though I said I was sleepy she’s still yapping noisily.

“Ugugu, what, this toy monster is talking and not listening! … Oh, a human huh. I wonder if that’s why it’s talking?”
“Oi, what are you… you’re giving me a headache, keep your voice down.”
“Ah, o-okay… Wait, what’s with you! I am the summoner, you should obediently listen to what I say.”
“Oi little girl… where’s your papa and mama? I’d like to go home.”
“Who’s a little girl! Y-you’re a monster summoned by the dungeon core! I’m going to work you until you die!”

Dungeon core… monster… yup, I don’t get it. I was summoned, so am I not a hero?

“Hey, quickly get up to leave and slaughter the bandits! Since I even invested 1000 DP, aren’t you actually pretty strong!?”

She suddenly started talking about something dangerous, oi.

“I see, I’ll listen to you for a bit, so speak. What’s a dungeon core, a monster, and DP? As for being summoned… I get that.”
“Oh, what, maybe you’re smart since you can talk? I am a mage or… well, it’s fine. This is my dungeon.”
“A little girl is the dungeon master…?”
“Aaah, so you know about dungeon masters. But there isn’t a dungeon master in my dungeon. Ah, but I guess… I wonder if I’d call myself the dungeon master?”

Of course I don’t know what in the world dungeon masters are, but I imagine they’re something like the ones in fantasy games from my memories.
But, the dungeon core… in other words, the heart of the dungeon. This little girl is…?

“Rather, even though you said humans are small fries, aren’t you a human?”
“I’m not, just my appearance is like a human’s… wait, what’s with that ‘you’!? Call me master!”
“Ah, come to think of it I haven’t heard your name. So, what is it?”
“Mine? It’s Dungeon Core No. 695.”

A number? Talk about cutting corners… well, if there’s a 695 that means there’s at least 694 others. If that’s it, naming would be one of those things that get skimped on.

“Got it, Rokuko.”
“Huh? What?”
“Well, since it’s hard to say Dungeon Core No. such and such, I decided your name is Rokuko. Your full name is Dungeon Core Rokuko. Ah, I’m Masuda Keima.”

I turned Dungeon Core No. 695 into Rokuko, what’s this girl saying while staring at me?

“Huh? Mahsewtah Kehma? … Is that an alias? Rather, what are you saying on your own–”

[Naming received, Master acknowledged.]  

“”Eh?””

Though I didn’t understand what was going on, that’s how I became a dungeon master.

    lol mispronouncing his name equaled recognizing him as a master. Good job, dungeon core.

  4. Lazy OP MC Lover says:

    That’s this little girl is…?
    -you messed up here.

    “Ah, come to think of it, I asked your name huh. What is it?”
    -doesn’t make sense here

    The heck. She’s still yapping even though I said I was sleepy she’s still yapping.

    -is this an author mistake or yours?

    • Ziru says:

      They’re all my errors. Will be fixed momentarily!

      Thank you for re-reading this and thank you for the help!

    • Darkrai69 says:

      “She’s still yapping even though I said I was sleepy she’s still yapping.”

      This sentence does make grammatical sense if you put a comma after the first “She’s still yapping”. Keima’s just putting emphasis on the fact that she’s still talking.

      “She’s still yapping, even though I said I was sleepy she’s still yapping.”

  5. name moniker says:

    (~0m0)~ good stuff

  6. Andy says:

    When I saw that you had released chapter 1 again I was terrified. I thought that the author might have chosen to start over again, like some other authors have done in the past. I’m glad that was not the case 😛

  7. Anonymous says:

    Is this a sign to reread through the series again Ziru-sama?

  8. Anonymous says:

    “I don’t know get what sort of principle”
    know or get?

  9. Barnaby says:

    SPOILER:

    Hold it! I just realised that this means that Keima could be considered a summoned hero that was summoned from the 1,000 DP Gacha- which Haku said in chapter 92 to be equivalent of 50,000,000,000 DP!
