[Well then, it’s reward time~]  

Yeah, I heard you a second ago.

[First of all is the extra prize. As a reward for doing your best, this is concerning your names. Haku Raverio, Rokuko Dungeon Core. I officially recognize these names to the limits of my authority.]  
“Ah! Really, Otou-sama!?”
“Amazing, the name I got from Kehma was officially recognized!”

I don’t really understand what’s so good about it, but the two Dungeon Cores were overjoyed.
Rather, Rokuko’s surname is Dungeon Core… ah, right, come to think of it, I called her with that name a while back huh? [1]

“Rokuko, you’re Haku-san’s younger sister, so wouldn’t Rokuko Raverio be better?”
“Huh? Really?”
“Besides, if you said your name was Dungeon Core your identity would be exposed immediately… so, would it be alright to adjust it?”
[Hmm, I think using [Dungeon Core] as a common family name for my children is good though. Well… un, as Kehma-kun wishes, let’s adjust it. 695, would you like to receive Kehma-kun’s family name and become Rokuko Masuda?]  

Why’s it my family name now!?
When I looked at Rokuko, her face was beat red. Is she feeling sick? I placed my hands to her cheeks to check.
Why’s your face loosening? Oi.
A grin on his face, [Father] kept talking.

[I’m not good at thinking up new names. That’s why numbers are an amazing invention, you only have to increase the count.]  
“I think her having the same ‘Raverio’ as Haku-san would be good though…”
[Haku has ‘Raverio’ because she married Lyon-kun though? Wouldn’t it then be natural for Rokuko, who is Kehma-kun’s partner, to introduce herself with the same family name as you?]  
“Tou-sama, i-in other words, y-you mean… K-Kehma and I… married!?”

I glanced toward Haku-san… Hmm? What’s that gesture…? Her thumb moved along her neck, stabbing downward at the end… ah, right. [Die].

“Wait, Rokuko. I’d like to keep our relationship pure for now.”
“? A pure relationship? Are there impure relationships? Kehma’s here so it being a bit dirty’s alright!”

Rokuko smiled tenderly.
The sudden turn made my chest throb.

“Right, Goshujin-sama’s [Cleanup] is special.”
“See! Meat gets it! Kehma can shoo away any filth in one shot!”

Rokuko completely affirmed Meat’s statement.
Ah, so that’s what she meant. I’m a bit relieved.
Aah, I must have arrhythmia. Super arrhythmia~, I should lie down~. I must be worn out from being so busy with stuff for the Dungeon Battle~.

“Umm, rather then suddenly getting married, how about making a pun off of dungeons… ‘labyrinth’—a word that means labyrinth in my world’s language. How about we twist that further into a family name of ‘Labriheart’? Ah, ‘heart’ means heart.” [2]
[A labyrinth’s heart huh? Sounds good. Would you mind allowing me to use that for my children’s common family name?]  
“I don’t mind.”
[Alright, then it’ll be Haku Raverio and Rokuko Labriheart. Under my authority, I again officially recognize these two names. Also, I allow my children to freely use Labriheart for their family name.]  

Somehow, this [Father] really did find thinking up [New Names] to be troublesome. He adopted it at the drop of a hat.

[… However, Kehma-kun. I heard that presenting a ring to someone is meaningful where you come from? Why would it be [Suddenly] after so long since that?]  
“Mmm, that was just the extra prize, don’t you still have prizes to give?”
[Oh, right. Well then, two for both Haku and Rokuko.]  

Good. I dodged the bullet.

[For Haku, a magic sword I made. As well as… ah, I guess it’d be better to keep it a secret from Kehma-kun and them? I’ll send you the other one later.]  
“Thank you for your consideration, Otou-sama. I accept your gift gratefully.”

… A magic sword made by [Father] huh. Wouldn’t that be a magic sword strong enough to wreck the planet? Also, what’s with that secret prize? I want to know what it is…

[For Rokuko… Yep. I’ll give you one of the godly beddings, a godly comforter. Ah, Kehma-kun, remember that this is for Rokuko.]  

Seriously? Godly beddings. Moreover, that ‘one of’… So that means there are other kinds?
… Now I have to collect them all.

[Make sure to read the instructions before using it, there are various things you’ll need to know. The next prize is for Kehma-kun. I give you this.]  

A white gem about as big as a basketball fell down in front of me.

“A Dummy Core?”
[No. Although it isn’t numbered and has nothing inside it, it is a genuine core. Go ahead and break it.]  

… Huh?

[You’re a Hero while also being a Dungeon Master, didn’t you want to see what’d happen if you destroyed a core? Ah, do you need a weapon?]  

… Ah, of course I’d be found out. Of cooourse~
With another bang, a sword fell down in front of me while I was thinking.
It was a plain sword that lacked any decoration, a sword made entirely of metal, even its hilt.
Yeah. It’s just a simple sword made fully out of metal. It’s just that that ‘metal’ was orichalcum.
Bargain bin orichalcum! How many ingots did it take to make this thing?

[That’s a freebie. I’m feeling pretty good today, so have fun with that. It’s not a magic sword or anything so don’t worry yeah? It’s just normal orichalcum shaped into a sword. Use it however you want.]  
“Could I melt it down into wires?”
[Sure. Do whatever with it.]  

Looks like me being able to process it however I want with [Create Golem] was exposed too.
I held the orichalcum sword… yep, it’s lighter than it looks. It’s one of orichalcum’s characteristics. After going this far, there’s no way I couldn’t destroy the Dungeon Core that was shining white just in front of me.
I swung at the mysterious Dungeon Core with the orichalcum sword.

The response was lighter than I’d expected. So sharp!
The Dungeon Core was sliced in half from my simple slash. I felt a warm wind break out from the cracked core.

[So, feel anything? You get a skill?]  
“No, I don’t really feel any—ah.”

I felt something like electricity run down my spine. This is it. It’s similar to the sensation from when you use a skill scroll. Information planted itself directly in my brain.
Aah, yep, there it is. I’m learning something. It’s like it’s telling me to not open another application during the installation—that sort of feeling.
I stopped moving for a while and waited for it to finish.
Once the installation finished, I heard a mechanical voice that felt like I’d heard it somewhere before echo in my head.

[[Super Transformation Lv 3] has been acquired.] [3]

… And it suddenly went to Lv 3 for some reason, the heck?


  • Chapter 1! Return
  • Things in ‘single quotes’ are written in katakana and aren’t being translated by Translation Function-san. Also note that ‘Labriheart’ is stated phonetically as ‘Labyrisuheart’. Assuming the author’s intention was to make a single, shorter word than the mouth-filling ‘Labyrinth Heart’, I chose to further shorten it into something that sounds less awkward in English. Return
  • Author-sama mentions that Super Transformation is very Kamen Rider-ish at the end of the chapter. As a result, I went with the popular way of translating the ability for Kamen Rider. Return

  4. Ollerus N says:

    I always thought Haku would join Kehma’s harem later.
    But if she’s married to someone already, I guess it’s impossible (?)

    • Dark says:

      Kehma’s harem? Everyone is in Haku’s harem empire.

      That said, Lyon Raverio WAS Haku’s master. The ‘founder’ of the empire… If he isn’t long dead, he’s a lich. Also, I’m willing to place bets he was a jerk, going by Haku’s current distrust of DMs and the fact that she called him ‘a mistake’.

      • Ziru says:

        I’m thinking that he may have spoken ill of [Father], to be honest. Not that I have any facts to back my thoughts up, though.

        • Ghost Ape says:

          I kinda wonder if he didn’t “cheat” on her (from Raku’s perspective) with another dungeon core, which led her down the path of destroying other cores.

      • RoflCat says:

        Umm, there’s a side chapter of those two.


        Basically, when she’s around him she can’t retain her cool-headed, queen like dignity she prefers, thus she’s still tsundere about it to this day.
        Also, her name was from ‘White’ (Haku) and not 89 (Ha(chi)-ku) but the lucky coincidence worked out for her so eh.

        One possibility is the Hero’s Workshop in the capital that nobody is allowed in there is actually Lyon’s home. Haku keeping him there is to ensure that any time she meets him and start going tsundere, nobody else will ever see that ‘shameful appearance’ of hers.

  5. Spud-sama says:

    Who needs a crazy mother in law that hates your guts when you have Haku the sister in law that feels the same…

  6. sodemas says:

    Thx for the chapter o/
    why do i think that Haku is gonna kill someone after this?~~

  7. SorakaNii says:

    When haku turns out to be your Neighbor’s wife, you know the drill. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  8. Pepperkat says:

    Danger Kehma daaaaangerrrr

  9. hold on, that “this is for rokuko” worries me. Doesn’t that mean Kehma can’t use them unless he’s sleeping together with her? He’s gonna get stabbed by haku

    thanks for the chapter

  10. Abyssal says:

    Thank you for the chapter~

    I can’t learn about this new skill~

  11. 23 says:

    “Here’s a baby, kill it and you’ll become more powerfull.”
    And then he kills the baby.

    • Diggydawg says:

      a brain dead baby… but yeah, that’s a dark way of looking at that situation.

    • Dark says:

      More like an unfertilized divine chicken egg, if you’re willing to trust ‘Father’, who is using Kehma to game the rules, but also leading him on. This method means Kehma won’t have to kill any ‘live’ cores to satisfy his curiosity on the matter, and the bed Rukoku got is another ‘carrot’ for Kehma. Like, “Reminder! Our side has cookies.”

      It does make me wonder how a core’s age or DP history mean anything to a ‘hero’ though.

  12. Victor says:

    Bedding… but not for you mate… that subtle fuck you and i know what you’re thinking. Here have a title that will bestow more work.

    This guy… welp is a god after all.

  13. RoflCat says:

    Since I was just re-reading this chapter recently, some translation mistakes:

    >“Wait, Rokuko. I think it’d be better if we waited until our relationship was more pure.”

    “I’d like to still keep our relation pure for now”
    (He’s trying to keep it pure i.e. non-romantic, not turning it ‘more pure’)

    Which of course means the second bit is off too:

    >“? More pure? Is that like being dirty? It’s fine, Kehma’s here so getting a bit dirty’s alright!”

    “? What’s pure relation? Is there an impure relation? Well even if it’s a bit dirty if it’s Kehma it’s fine”
    (You can feel the misunderstanding)

    >[You’ll be a Hero despite being a Dungeon Master. Didn’t you want to see what’d happen if you destroyed a core? Ah, do you need a weapon?]

    [You’re a Dungeon Master cum Hero right?]
    (Kehma already know he’s holding both role)

    >… Ah, of course I’d be found out. Of cooourse~

    it’s been found out
    (i.e. Father already knew, not that Kehma was found out just now)

    • Ziru says:

      Changed to:

      “Wait, Rokuko. I’d like to keep our relationship pure for now.”
      “? A pure relationship? Is there an impure relationship? Kehma’s here so it being a bit dirty’s alright!”

      [You’re a Hero despite being a Dungeon Master, didn’t you want to see what’d happen if you destroyed a core? Ah, do you need a weapon?]

      For that last one… “of course I’d be found out” doesn’t only mean ‘just now’. I’m using it in the way that he’s saying “He would obviously be able to find out”, implying that he was found out previously.


      • RoflCat says:

        Well, partly because of precedence (Lyon), I just felt Father using ‘hero despite being dungeon master’ is a little off-character.

        Like, given that he spoke rather fondly of Lyon, I don’t think he’s ‘against’ the possibility of Dungeon Master-Hero to the point of using ‘despite’ to separate the two. If anything he really, really enjoys having one to observes.

        Hence Dungeon Master cum Hero (having both position at the same time) instead of Hero despite being Dungeon Master (implying the two naturally don’t get along in the speaker’s mind, but given Father’s attitude so far I think he knows something else)

        • Ziru says:

          Oh, oops. No joke, I changed the [despite] into [while being] on my PC, but wrote [despite] again here… Yeah, I agree with you. Despite is definitely the wrong word.

          (No need to explain the admittedly esoteric X-cum-Y though <3 )

          • Ziru says:

            That said, as it is rather esoteric and quite a large amount of readers aren’t native English, I rather dislike using X-cum-Y… Yeah.

            (If you’re wondering why I’m not going with Dungeon Master-cum-Hero)

          • Diggydawg says:

            Dungeon Master-cum-Hero

            That there has to be a fetish of sorts.

    Thanks for the chapter! Love ya!

  15. Zeth says:

    Thank you!!!!!

    Thanks for the chapter

    Sneaky Father, trying to lure innocent Keima into Rokuko’s comforter.

    Thanks kindly for the chapter and all the hard work!

  18. thatguy572 says:

    Well besides that April Fool’s one where he had that as her surname in that status, he also called her “Your full name is Dungeon Core Rokuko” in chapter 1 when he named her and became her master. Her family name is first and her first name second, as the way Japanese do it, in that chapter. Also, my theory is that Haku’s master (boyfriend/husband) is still alive and is in fact, Rin’s (dark wolf/slime thing who hates salt) master. Considering it is a fantasy world and dungeon Cores can buy all kinds of goodies, not impossible to think he is some kind of undead, or used some kinda youth potion and what not.

  19. Bai says:

    So kehma have 3 phase transformation now? XD
    Thanks for the chap!

  20. superdbgtfan says:

  22. k says:

    Thanks for the update

  23. CreamBeast says:

    Super Henshin lv. 3? so the author watching KR Ex-Aid, huh?

  24. bob says:

    mmm lyon still being alive not weird, hes a dungeon master, his life is bound to the dungeon core. so that probably would make him imortal, keima too for that matter. i could be wrong, but its an idea.

  25. Uni says:

    The day Rokuko’s surname changes to Masuda or the day Rokuko gets him on that godly comforter is the day he can sleep now and forever.

    Nah, pronounce is at Labrynshart.

  28. Aaron says:

    I think that Lyon would be that wolf demon’s master.

  29. Tinchen says:

    ty for the chap
    and can someone give haku another little sister so Kehma can get laid?

  30. KuRuuRuu says:

    Lol Kehma, just marry Rokuko already! (No guarantee on your life after this though)
    And that beddings is for Rokuko, right? So Kehma can’t use it unless he’s with her? 😆
    What a way to troll him, Father!

    Thank you for the chapter and looking forward to Kehma’s fransformation! 😂

  31. Darkness23 says:

    [Father] just keep shipping rokuko and keima then Haku-neesan is going to kill him lol
    Thanks for the chap ~

  32. Elaborate says:

    Hm, “Mazeheart” would be shorter. Though I kinda like the earlier suggestion of “Labrynsheart”.

  33. Anonymous says:

    Since when was Keima a hero? Are you sure he didn’t say, a hero while being a dungeon master, weren’t you curious what would happen? Meaning Father knew Keima was wondering what would happen if he accidentally broke 666 core?

  34. LOLI.com says:

    Haku’s secret reward bugs me…
    (?) It could be related to Emperor-kun and Haku’s relationship, you know… in a medieval setting where preserving lineage is important and stuff happens. Just a guess thou.

  35. Philippe Spalla says:

    thanks for the chapter…!!

  36. A random passerby says:

    Father really gave kehma a big troll lol
    Also he seems to support rokuko and kehma
    and he got super transformation lv 3…..i think i know what’s gonna transform here( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  37. D.O.G says:

    Thanks for the chapter! 🙂

  38. Barnaby says:

    My guess is that Haku’s secret present is a Rokuko body pillow.

  39. Dark Soul says:

    Kuuga, chou henshin

  40. Angel says:

    oh he can transform to anything with that skill 😀 or maybe not ahahaha 😀

    thx for the chapter ^^

  41. Adobo says:
