World Teacher – Chapter 10

World Teacher – Chapter 10

I may or may not have been late with this one, sorry about that, but I’m in my exams etc… Well, this chapter was translated by Nul at first, but I had to change a lot of stuff and almost changed everything, also Guest4 dealt with some of the editing and translated a little.

The retired old man’s rhapsody

Several days after meeting Fia, I came to the Adroad continent again.

I came back since I didn’t get to do my exploration last time because of the troubles I had with Fia. Well, despite that, I guess I did learn some useful stuff from her. If we do meet again, I’ll just think of her as a lover I left and neglected or something like that. It’s ridiculous to worry now about an uncertain future

Because I went east last time, this time I’ll try going west. It would be nice if there is just a simple village in that direction. I already got my share of elf troubles with Fia.

While the east side is only flat forests, this side has a mountainous terrain. There seems to be a lot of demons, so there probably won’t be any human villages. Still, I fly around while searching, yet I don’t see anything. Is this also a miss?

In order for my actions not to go to waste, I have to remember to do some mapping during breaks. While I’m writing on the map as I wonder where I should go next, my ears unexpectedly catch on some sound. I raise my face from the map and confirm that I’m really hearing something. However, looking around, I can’t see the origin of the sound. It has a certain rhythm, and sounds like it’s coming from the other side of the mountain. This can’t be ignored.
Hurrying, I close the map and fly towards the source of the noise.

As I make a detour around the mountain, I find a solitary house built in a carved out tree.
It’s pretty far but, I can see smoke coming from something that looks like a chimney, there has to be someone living there. Even so, for someone to reside in a private house in the midst of this forest… it must be fun to live this eccentrically.

I could just go through the sky and land there but it smells like trouble, so I get off at a nearby place and switch to going on foot for the rest of the way. I travel through the dense forest then, at last, I arrive at the house down the road by following something that looks like an animal’s trail.

A man twice my height is chopping a tree there. The origins of the noise that led me here seems to be the sound of wood-chopping.
He’s wearing a simple black shirt and a pair of trousers. His short hair is completely gray and a scar runs over his left eye. He’s probably pretty old, but his well trained muscles and his sharp eyes make him look like a veteran warrior.
He swings his axe down in a steady way. Though it’s just mere wood-splitting, I think that his refined movements are beautiful. He would look better swinging a sword on a battlefield’s front rather than merely cutting wood.

【 “……Who’s there? Stop hiding and come out.”】(???)
(EDN:He speaks in a dialect, a “ho-gen”, like an old man)

He noticed me even though I’m hiding my presence? Those muscles aren’t just there for show.
As I come out obediently since I don’t really have a reason to hide, his threatening look settles down a little.

【 “Hmm, did you get lost or something?”】(???)
【 “Nice to meet you, I am Sirius. I’m sorry to bother you, I accidentally found this place while taking a walk.”】(Sirius)
【 “…… What the hell are you saying? Are you from the demon race? I won’t hold back if you’re hostile.”】(???)

He turns his axe towards me like he’s ready to hit me at any moment, I can feel bloodthirst coming from him. Wait a minute, no matter how suspicious I am, isn’t he losing his temper a little too fast? I haven’t done anything but talk.

【 “No no no, I’m normal… well, not really, but I’m a child of the human tribe. I’m not hostile at all.”】

I raise both of my hands and I put them in evidence to show that I’m not hostile and he cautiously lowers his axe. Then, without saying a thing, he resumes his wood chopping, disregarding me. It’s rather refreshing to meet someone that blunt.
However, my coming here would all be pointless if I’m going to get ignored. Should I start the conversation from here?

【 “I’m sorry, but why do you live in such a place?”】(Sirius)
【 “I don’t want to converse with an aristocrat. I don’t know how you found me, but we have nothing to talk about. Leave quickly and take your bodyguard with you.”】(???)

I got strongly rejected and spat on. Isn’t this old man misunderstanding something? I get that he hates nobles, but I don’t know who he is. First of all, I should make something clear.

【 “It seems like you’re misunderstanding something, I just came here by chance, I wasn’t looking for you. And I’m not an aristocrat, so I don’t have any bodyguard. You probably already noticed that there is no one else around besides me since you’ve got sharp senses.”】(Sirius)
【 “… There is no one else, indeed. Boy, how did you get here? This isn’t a place where a child can come by himself.”】(???)
【 “Because I have some special magic. I’ll say it again, I found you by accident.”】(Sirius)
【 “Boy, do you know me?”】(???)
【 “I don’t know you, but I do think that you have a lot of skill.”】(Sirius)

This old man’s atmosphere is different from Dee’s. Yesterday’s bandits are like trash when compared to this. Was my answer good? The old man finally stops being cautious of me.

【 “Hmm, you do seem different from those foolish nobles, boy.”】(???)
【 “Please don’t compare me to them. It’s unpleasant.”】(Sirius)
【 “Hoho, you said it. Well, you’re a guest so, I’ll serve you some tea. Come with me.”】(???)

Speaking of aristocrats, the only one I know is my father. That’s why it’s just like I said to the old-man, I don’t want to be considered as one of them. Is he satisfied with this? The old man puts down his axe and invites me to his house.

It’s a handmade log-house.
It’s made of neatly processed wood, something similar to the stuff done in my previous world. There is a desk and a chair in the middle of the room, a carpet and futons made of demon fur and a stone oven (EDN: The ones used for pizza etc…). It’s quite surprising since it seems that the old man made all of these by himself.

【 “Although I am an amateur, I try to use my strength and my extra time in various ways.”】(???)
【 “No, no, what you did here isn’t something that an amatuer can do. Actually, don’t you think you have a talent for this?”】(Sirius)
【 “I don’t like putting it as a talent. Oh well, I’m glad to be complimented anyway.”】(???)

I wasn’t flattering him. To think that he made all of this by himself despite being isolated… This place is definitely more remote than my house. I wonder what reason he has for living here.
As I sit down on a chair while pondering on my questions, the old man prepares some tea and sits in a chair facing mine.

【 “Unfortunately, there are no other drinks for children. It’s fine to stop drinking it if this doesn’t suit your taste.”】(???)
【 “Oh, I don’t mind.”】(Sirius)

He pours a green liquid into a wooden cup for me. I don’t sense anything suspicious in it even after smelling it but… the smell seems familiar. The old man drinks it while gurgling so I take a breath and do the same even though it’s still steamy.

【 “Mmmh…Delicious.”】(Sirius)
【 “Huh? You understand this taste?”】(???)
【 “I understand it. The bitterness that stays in the throat and the heat that numbs the tongue. Isn’t it most suitable after a meal?”】(Sirius)

It’s a little heavy, but there is no doubt. This is japanese tea, isn’t it? Because I drink it quickly, I nearly burn myself, but it has a nostalgic taste. The old man becomes more and more cheerful from seeing my reactions.

【 “Umu, you understand, don’t you boy? For a child to understand the deliciousness, you’re quite the smart fellow.”】(???)
【 “Could you allow me to take some of this with me? I’d also like to know the raw ingredients if you don’t mind.”】(Sirius)
【 “All right, I’ll give you some later.”】(???)

Such a generous old man. It was worth coming here if only for this.

【 “No one else in this country gets it. Not understanding something like this… they’re just unworthy of it.”】(???)
【 “Exactly. By the way, may I ask for your name?”】(Sirius)

He lives alone in this kind of place. He could also be a criminal but, at least I know that he’s not a person who’d try to poison me. I’m just someone who wants to learn various things, I never change my attitude no matter who I talk to.

【 “Lior. Are you familiar with the name?”】(Lior)
【 “Lior? It heard it somewhere… hmm?”】(Sirius)

If I remember correctly, it appeared in a book. The source: Alberto’s travel diary.

The great swordsman who cuts everything down and turns it to ashes with his large sword of fire, said to come from the strongest family.
Capable of crushing a rock with one hit of his mighty sword which he even used to slay a dragon, according to the rumors.
All the people call him by the same name, that is,【Goutsurugi Lior】. (TLN:Literally, “Lior, the strong sword”, but it sounds lame so I’ll keep it as Goutsurugi)

【 “Could it be that, you’re Goutsurugi Lior?”】(Sirius)
【 “That’s an old story. I’m just a retired old man now.”】(Lior)

Oh, I thought he seemed strong but, but I didn’t think he was that high tier. I want to fight him by all means.
However, as powerful as he may be, I can’t feel any will to fight from him. He released some killing intent when he thought I was a suspicious person but he went back to being a simple retired old man as soon as he figured that I was harmless. There might be a reason for that which involves his hate for aristocrats.

【 “You don’t look like someone in his retirement days to me. If it’s alright, can you tell me the reason behind your situation?”】(Sirius)
【 “Hmph, you impudent boy. Well, I don’t have anything else to do so I’ll tell you but, it’s a long story.”】(Lior)

He pours a second helping of tea into our respective cups and gradually starts talking.

【 “I always liked training. I trained and trained, I defeated various opponents and, before I knew it, I got labeled as the strongest. I also got labeled as master swordsman and strong flame but I didn’t really care for these trivial titles. However, after becoming the strongest, I couldn’t find an opponent to match me. Then an idea came to me like a flash, seeing how things were, I could just train someone and turn him into an opponent capable to face me, therefore I took some pupils. I easily managed to gather a lot of disciples at the center of the country after declaring openly that I was looking for one.”】(Lior)

He’s the strongest after all. He’d likely be able to gather as many disciples as he wants even after advertising for just a moment.

【 “However, I’d say that most of the proposals I received were from aristocrats who wanted to show off as my pupils. Though the guys I taught were hungry for strength, they were just gutless idiots. Whenever a situation got tough, they’d run away, and if I didn’t go easy enough on them, they’d find it unacceptable and start whining. I have even been reported several times to the king, there was no end to those idiots’ proposals that I turned down. Since it couldn’t be helped, I decided to look by myself for suitable apprentices that I could eventually fight eye to eye with. I found a few fitting pupils but, they were all natives of the slums and commoners which made those dumb aristocrats make a commotion. From their point of view, I neglected them even though their position was better as nobles so they started whining again, yet it felt pretty good this time.
However, several of the nobles got jealous and envious and aimed for the right time when I was absent to surround and attack my disciples, preventing them of even swinging their swords. Though the pupils had some good skills, one of them ended up dying. In a fit of rage I looked for those nobles and chopped off the arms of the fools and humiliated them in front of the king and the other aristocrats. After that, things just got ridiculous so, I retired here, I didn’t want to get involved with the aristocrats anymore.”】(Lior)

After finishing the long explanation, the old man quenches his thirst with some tea.
I now understand well the reason behind his hate for nobles and his lack of vigor.
However…. For now, I’ll just give him my thoughts on that.

【 “So halfhearted!”】(Sirius)
【 “Come again?”】(Lior)
【 “You revenge against the nobles was too halfhearted! What you did to those aristocrats only hindered the country, you should have destroyed their family name and honor instead!”】(Sirius)
【 “……hmm”】(Lior)
【 “You were reported to the king several times before, right? This whole thing is just a consequence of that. You didn’t try to justify yourself properly and you carelessly took risks instead, didn’t you just get too excited?”】(Sirius)
【 “Certainly so. However it would have been useless to justify myself because there were too many aristocrats blaming me, it’s my first time being told that I acted halfheartedly.”】(Lior)
【 “A student shouldn’t die before his teacher, that’s why It’s very important to improve the pupils’ environment and make it suitable.”】(Sirius)

Though it’s just my opinion, I think that creating an appropriate training environment is also the teacher’s duty. The aristocrats are certainly bad, but the old-man who ignored them and looked down on them is bad as well. He didn’t just have to guide his students, he also had to watch their back while they were still inexperienced. That applies even more when there are only a few of them.
As a former teacher, it should be alright for me to make a sermon or two, right?

【 “Hmph, that’s difficult to hear. You’re just a boy, how would you understand?”】(Lior)
【 “I certainly am a child. Still, I’m aiming to become a teacher. You should admit your mistakes as the one standing on top.”】(Sirius)
【 “You want to try to become a teacher at your age? Though you have some wonderful ambition, you’re not likely to become one with your half-baked ideas.”】(Lior)
【 “Then, maybe you should give it a try yourself?”】(Sirius) (TLN:if you didn’t get it, he’s insinuating that what he did in the past wasn’t worth being called teaching)

I provoke him while letting out a small overpowering feeling. Even I think that I’m being too blunt but, the old-man squints his eyes and his mouth gets just slightly distorted.

【 “Good, I knew that you weren’t an ordinary fellow, you’re finally showing your true colors.”】(Lior)

Somehow, there is a fight-like atmosphere and the old-man is fired up now, excellent.
Let’s have him show me the abilities of the one called the strongest.

After leaving the house, we’re now facing each other with wooden swords in our hands.
Putting aside the old-man’s sword, the other seem to be suited for children and probably belonged to the dead apprentice. Though it looks like it hasn’t been used in a long time, he probably cherishes it because it has been treated with great care. I think that it’s likely to break if it’s used for a serious fight, but the material of this wooden sword seems very strong and best suited for training nonetheless. The grandpa is beaming with confidence and not worrying at all.
Though he’s an old man, he’s happily doing practice swings to warm up. The opponent I’m facing this time is like a demon, I’m glad to be able to fight against such a person. I actually craved for meeting someone like that, so there is no way I’m letting this old man retire.

【 “If you hit me even once, it’s your win boy. But don’t worry, I’ll hold back.”】(Lior)
【 “Why, thanks. But this handicap you’re giving me will be your downfall.”】(Sirius)(TLN:It’s a japanese expression so I just put the closest meaning)
【 “Cut it out, boy. Show me with actions, not words.”】(Lior)

Well, now that my plan is a success, I don’t need to badmouth him to provoke him anymore. However, I didn’t plan the rest of this, what should I do?
I’ll just try to make the first move for now.
I slowly walk toward him, then when I get two steps away from the old man, I focus all the power of my upper body to my feet and I dash at him. From a slow motion to a fast one, although he’s surprised, the old man responds to the unexpected attack and moves over instantly. As expected of the one titled as the strongest, he easily managed to read and dodge my move and trajectory. While he dodges, I slash the wooden sword down from his shoulder with my right hand, and I go aside. I then take some distance and as we pass each other by the side, I notice that the left hand I hit him on is shaking.

【 “Say, what if this was actually a knife?”】(Sirius)
【 “It would have been a fatal injury on a battlefield. My retirement made me grow dull, how shameful of me.”】(Lior)

He finally notices his negligence and smiles wryly while shaking his head. This should make things get serious. Looking at the old-man, a ferocious smile appears on his face and his muscles start inflating.

【 “I’m sorry. Yet, I’m thankful as well, boy. My heart almost got rotten! Wouaaaaah!”】(Lior)

The shock wave made by his roar shakes all the trees around.
Hey wait, Isn’t that too big of a change? He was just a lazy retired man a few minutes ago. Yet now, the strong pressure resulting from him just standing there is making all the demons and animals in the area run away in all directions.
This tension reminds me of the training with my teacher. I want to cry every time I recall the kumite in that hell, but I’ll put that aside for now. The preparations are complete. The old man finally got serious, from here on we’ll have a real fight.(EDN: Kumite is one of the three main sections of Karate, similar to sparring.)

【 “I’ve never seen this stance before. What school is it from?”】(Lior)

The old-man is holding his sword vertically pointing upright, it’s quite similar to the style called Jigen-ryū from my previous life.
The Jigen-ryū style is said to allow one to cut anything with a single blow. I think that it really fits this old-man.

【 “It’s not from any school in particular, it’s self-taught.”】(Sirius)

As for me, I’m hiding one hand behind my back and I’m holding my sword with the other, a peculiar stance that protects the body.
Though I was trained by teacher, she didn’t follow any school. However, she shined by nothing but her experience and changed her moves to suit each case. A style that changes depending on the situation. It’s a style that is quite convenient for me.

【 “Is that so? In that case, from here on, let’s go at it boy!”】(Lior) (TLN: For those who get it, he said “Ikuzo!”)

The old-man dashes at me by stepping only his tendons on the ground, and I activate my【(Boost)】in order to fast Guotsurugi.
Thus… a switch got turned on.

――― Lior ―――


I always liked training and fighting, I kept getting stronger just because I liked it, and eventually, I became the strongest.
However, I also became empty.
Though there was no end to the people challenging me to get my title, they all sunk with a blow or two.
Too weak.
How long was it since my thirst for fighting had faded?

So boring.

Fire won’t burn without any firewood.
And like the fire wood, I kept waiting for a meeting with a worthy opponent.

And then one day, I realised that instead of waiting for it I could just make it happen.
Training disciples and raising them to fight against me. That was way more significant than just waiting. Though I immediately found some recruits, I only gathered noble brats losers who didn’t even know how to swing a sword. Even when there was some pupils that were somewhat better, they were removed by the other aristocrats’ influence. Some people even tried to bribe me to give them a student title but I shut those guys up with a single blow.
I decided that I shouldn’t wait for apprentices either and that I should look for some myself. I searched all over the world and kept looking for pupils in thirst for strenght. I was delighted when I finally gathered enough students. They got stronger and stronger every day. It was the first time I felt that happy besides when I fought.

However… the aristocrats destroyed all that.

I cut the right arm of the main culprits for revenge, but my mind didn’t clear at all. Even simple seeing aristocrats felt unpleasant.

I left the country in despair and I retired in a secluded sea of trees. I built a house, I fought with some demons, and spent my everyday life in a calm and peaceful way. However, I couldn’t fill the empty hole in my heart.
When the mind becomes weak, the body becomes weak as well. Even my favorite sword gradually started to feel heavy, I grew weaker because of the lack of any sense of danger.
And my empty days continued.

And then, I met a boy.

It was a confusing and nonsensical child. (TLN: From this point on, I just rushed the translation)
Even experienced adventurers rarely set foot in this forest, yet he casually passed by here with a light attire like he was just going to the neighboring town. I thought he was a new variety of demon at first so I gave off some bloodthirst, then I thought he was some idiot noble who came to visit me. It’s rare to meet someone who doesn’t know me on this continent, I was quite interested in that boy who didn’t recognize me even after seeing me, though he understood who I was after I revealed my name to him.
The boy was quite mature for his age and he had good taste in tea, too. It was my first time meeting someone after so long as well so, I became quite talkative.

However, I actually ended up getting preached. I noticed that he was provoking me and I answered to his provocation in order to educate that impertinent boy. I thought I could just wait for an attack, dodge it and hit the the kid lightly on his head, however, he was just leisurely walking for some reason. It was my first time seeing that kind of action.
I absentmindedly watched the boy leisurely approaching me then he suddenly appeared in front of me and got into my range. I almost fell down on the ground from the surprise and my heart was pounding strongly. If it was the old me, I would never have let him get this close. I was surprised by my weakness, but I managed to barely move away. I dodged that attack but the boy hit me at my side right after and then took some distance.

【 “Say, what if this was actually a knife?”】(Sirius)

Those words made me angry. Not towards the boy but towards myself.
What on earth am I doing? This arrogance, it’s the same as those fools’ from the past. Though he didn’t actually stab me, that blow woke me up. This fellow is not a simple child, he’s a strong person worthy of being my opponent, I now understand that. I disappear and a blazing fire takes my stead, my body starts to pulse with heat.
This sensation…… I missed it.
I apologized to him, thanked him and we then took a fresh start. This boy…. no, this guy, it’s someone I can get serious with. He doesn’t belong to any school either, he’s holding a stance that I’ve never seen before. He should join my school【(Tsuyoshi Yabu Itto-Ryu)】.

“Tsuyoshi Yabu Itto style” “First technique: Heaven’s strenght”
It’s a basic technique that consist on raising the sword and then swinging it down with all one’s strength
It’s nothing but a simple downward string, but it can easily slice and cut iron once studied thoroughly. Though its trajectory is easy to read, it’s difficult to avoid it because of its speed and the overpowering feeling given off by the full-out blow.
It can’t be avoided because of its simplicity.
In fact, most of my opponents were beaten by this. But, what about this fellow? I step cautiously because of the fissures on the ground and I use heaven’s strength…it’s dodged. Moreover, he avoids it at the very last moment by merely shifting half of his body to the side. I leak out a smile over his ability to surely dodge that kind of strikes reflexively.

Immediately after, I aim for the opponent and slice at him with a downward swing, I’m using the “Ninoken Tsuyoshi-Shō”. He twists his body and avoids this on as well. Though he tries to use the momentum of the evasion to attack me, I raise back my sword and use it to defend myself

Not only he avoided both of my attacks but now, my chances of losing are bigger since I also have to watch out for counterattacks.

My blood is boiling more than I thought. The opponent surely made me give him my best. The fellow is using the【(Boost)】magic to compensate for the difference in physical strength. Though I had an opponent who used that in the past, It’s my first time seeing a complete use of【(Boost)】. No, this doesn’t matter for now. (TLN: The boost is generally used partially, like, on one hand or one arm)
I’ll go all out now and give the best I can.
(TLN: From here on, I rushed the translation, I’ll correct that tomorrow)

“Eight Slashes Breath” “Rannoken-Chiyabu.”
He blocks half of the slashes with his sword and he dodges the remaining ones.

I plunge mana in the sword and create an extensive shock wave, “Yabuno-kenshōha”.
I use this chance to pass him by the side, I try to attack him but he moves back outside the reach of the impact. I swing down forward and he dodges by jumping backwards.

Oh…… It doesn’t connect, none of my techniques connect.
Haha, splendid! I can’t stop my heart from dancing. This is incredibly fun.
A competition using both power and skill, a fight to the extreme with both parties clashing at full strenght. Power is returning to my weakened body, and being able to sharpen my senses and use my techniques is so pleasant. The strong man I longed for for so long has appeared at last.
What Goutsurugi? What strongest? Isn’t there someone clearly superior to me right here?

I want to fight with my beloved sword, not with some wooden one.
I don’t want us to withdraw after one hit, I want us to fight until we attain a clear victory or defeat.
I want to put on my armor, I want to fight desperately with life and death at sake.
I want to keep fighting forever.

My revived heart spits out desires one after another, but this old body hits it’s limit. My breath is ragged, and I am clearly on the defensive side. This body is far past its prime, but because I did not neglect my daily training, I should be able to fight a little longer. It seems to by the price to pay for the time I spent rotting away.
If only I had met him sooner… No, it’s too late to say that isn’t it?
He attempts a strong attack aimed at my neck but he stops, jumps backward and puts a lot of distance between us. Strange, he could have struck me with his sword using that momentum. As I establish a steady breath while questioning his actions, he also just stands there, exhaling deep breath and he raises a single finger.

【 “We’re both at our limit. Let’s put an end to this.”】(Sirius)
【 “…… All right”】(Lior)

Is that so? Is this fellow at his limit?
Though his appearance didn’t change, I can see that his breath is getting rough little by little and his arm is slightly shaking, showing that he’s indeed at his limit. And I only noticed it just now, even his skill for concealing tiredness is wonderful.
The thing is that, if we keep fighting like this, I’ll get exhausted and he’ll win just from his tenacity. Nevertheless, he took some distance and declared that we’re ending this. I’m really thankful. Then, I’ll honor that graceful gesture.
I fix my disordered breath, I take a Heaven’s Strength stance again and grasp the sword. All right, here I come. I will show him the strongest blow I can pull off in my current state.

The fellow accelerates at a dash in a frontal way without trying to pull any petty tricks. Though I surpas him in power, I don’t know what will happen against this opponent whose movements I can’t read. He uses his momentum from running and swings his sword as if he’s scooping something up, while I just naively swing mine from the top to the bottom.

A crushing sound echoes throughout the area, and our wooden swords crumble to pieces. Could they not withstand our attacks any longer? Whether that’s it or not, I just leak out a sigh and enjoy this time of supreme bliss.

But I was foolish. This fight… isn’t over yet.

The moment I look at the pieces of wood flying about, the guy’s foot catches my jaw.

Ha ha…..
There was no reason for the fight to end when the weapons broke.

I see his foot move slightly and at that moment, my consciousness fades away.

    At least it’s better then us waiting n keep on disturbing u cuz of it.

      1. it is better to wait for full chapter
        also, good luck on your exam
        my exam is bad because of reading mushoku tensei too much instead of learning calculus xD

  3. Defi….. Why the suspense?? I thought u said its nearly finish about 4 days ago. I’ve been checking up for it almost every few hour since…. ( T_T)\(-_- )

        I would like to translate the next chapter but i would do 13 if someone is already working on it. I need about 4-7 days for a Chapter I guess.

      2. hm can also do 14…but can you make a page with the names? 😀 so i dont need to look back what name you chosed. Or is there a folder on google drive?

      3. Use whatever name you think is good bro, I don’t know what I’m going to use yet, and, well, I’ll just give them:
        Sirius – Elena – Noel – Dee – Reus – Emilia – Maria

    1. Yup I’m really craving for a new chapter too… Specially because I heard something about slave siblings or something? I want to know more! (don’t get offended by that… I’m interested in slavery in literature, ok?)

  6. There are three instances of the word “strenght” where I think you meant “strength”.
    Good luck on your exams and thanks for the awesome translations.

  7. Good luck, hope your exams go well, my college life isn’t nearly as difficult, but i feel a little of your pain. So thanks for putting up the time to even translate at all. 🙂

    1. Not done, we have two math exams (I did one), two science exams (I did one), two physics exams (I did one), one philosophy exam (Done), two english exams (I did one), one french exam (not done yet), one arabic exam (not done yet), one islamic education exam (not done yet), one history and geography exam (not done yet). And of course, at the end of February, I have one exam of each again, screw Algeria, seriously ><

      1. Wah why do you have so many exams !!!! It is a wonder how you still have time to translate novels, though i love reading your translated chapters XD

      2. Well, I live in Algeria and they’re trying to get rid of the students ’cause the free colleges are full, that’s why they make it so hard, and these exams don’t even really count, the worse thing is to come, the baccalaureat is going to rape me from front (I don’t know how though) and behind 🙁

      3. wow…dude, as much as I’d love for a new chapter of World Teacher…I’d say you should focus your full attention on your exams until its over XD

      4. Defiring, that is kinda sick because there is only one 100% safe way to keep males virgin and it isn’t pretty.

  8. I gotta say I just discovered this novel and I really like it thanks for all the hard work and good luck with school and translations and the like

  9. Why are you the knly one translating such an awesome manga… respect man ;-; keep it up… tho I wish more people would translate so it would come out faster ;-;

    1. Maybe? But, my chapters are not edited on the drive, you should check Nexus chapters there but please, don’t come to correct me if you’ve only seen the mistake on the drive ><

    1. Well, It went… as good as an philosophy exam in Arabic can go ><
      I got an average mark on physics and Science and screwed up in maths, but that's just what happens when I pass my exams while being sick T_T

      1. I’m in Algeria, you can’t just write what you want, there are a shit load of rules to follow and if you derive from them just a little bit, you fail ><

      2. Ouch and philosphy has always been a bull… contest test wise for me, i feel for you… all i had to worry about was making sense and trying to look at both sides … so rambling really

    1. Maybe, it depends on the distance of the sun with Venus. No, seriously, I really don’t know, I’m trying my best here, but my studies are just more important and I have english and philosophy exams tomorrow so I’ll get back to translating once I’m done with that, I can’t allow myself to sleep at 5am like I used to right now ><

      1. Nah nvm def ,ofcourse study first! Also thanks for the hardwork~ allright ,i will cheering for you instead! How about i shouting something like “GO DEFI GO DEFI GO! “In front of your house .naked ofcourse…

  10. World Teacher now has a Baka-Tsuki page, and is listed under Main Projects. Since you’re the only translator and everyone reads it off of your site, don’t stress about updating/uploading. This only becomes important when others join or you drop. I did a little bit of proofreading and editing when I put the chapters up, but nothing noticeable.

    God damn WT volume 1 was solid, and then we get continent hopping… I suppose it’s still an interesting read despite that kind of thing. I’ll give you a heads up if I decide to do anything else for the series.

    *Waiting for chapter 11.

    1. Well, you see, I’m kinda translating the next chapter, but I’ve been translating since yesterday but the thing is that I’m lazy as hell since I had a long and tiring week, well, I’m halfway through, which is nice I guess.

  11. Well ain’t nobody got time to search for wild virgin leprechauns, do you accept sacrifices in the form of stray dogs, I got lots of those around

      1. I don’t see what you’re talking about, I just want virgin ones for reasons, not the reasons you’re imagining, I’m Defiring, I’m a pure angel 🙂

      2. I’m very open when it concerns Leperchauns but they gotta be virgins… thought you can’t verify in the male’s case indeed… this is getting difficult….

    1. Derf? Oo Well, I’m working on the chapter, sorry for being late, i’ve been sick and studying all week so I didn’t have much time, I take a lot of time ’cause I always try to be as accurate as possible, though this chapter could be translated roughly without much problems, I don’t want to drop the quality, sorry x)

      1. Ah take care with your health :).
        And yeah for some reason I keep reading your name as derf-something

      2. It’s good that you try to be as accurate as possible and all, but in time you’ve translated 7 chapters the author released 10.

      3. I told you i’m busy bro, I have way too many studying to do, I usually do my chapters in 4 to 5 hours, it’s just that I’m busy right now and the author released 5 chapters, not 10.

  12. Le inviamo la presente notifica per ringraziarLa del recente lavoro svolto
    Il Vostro spirito d`iniziativa e di sacrificio volti all`arricchimento della cultura e al miglioramento del presente stile di vita della comunitá sono degni di lode.

      1. It does mean
        ” thank you for your work,
        it makes all of us happy,
        keep it going, but think firstly to your health and studying (^J^)/”
        All written like a letter of commendation (italian language is perfect for that (;-J-) )
