    There's only a dozen chapters so far, but this story is slow even as a slice of life story. The translations is very good. As is typical of Japanese stories, the reading level is set pretty low to appeal to a very young demographic.

    Anyway, I've started this LCD mainly due to Author's Note in c12:
    Here is youtuber scholagladiatoria who's an antique sword collector and dealer (auctions, etc.) discussing the value of swords in the medieval period:


    And here's a newer video with additional info:

    I like it when the author tried to research about their work.

    Sure, it's to be expected from them. But somehow some authors tend to ignore such important thing like “it's isekai so it's OK to be different”

    I read the raw up to volume 3 and just start reading volume 4. It's quite interesting since it's not an isekai and the MC is not really OP.

    Ch-19: just casually walking, they were able descend to the level where the dragon's corpse still lay. It's been quite a while, yet no one else had wandered down to there? I'd have expected the dragon corpse to have been stripped and harvested.

    I like. Realistic, especially the current arc. (Minister).:D

    First of all, the author makes it clear that the outdoor dungeon is low ranked. Walking there should be doable.

    I do agree that the dragon not being stripped is unlikely..o_O

    Edit:
    chapter 20 starts with the locals scavenging materials off the dragon corpse.

    The MC's speech mannerism gives me the impression that he's upper middle age, quite unlike how he looks in the cover art.

    Isn't he suppose dot be somewhere in the late 20's to early 30's, as he has been an adventurer for 15 years and probably started in his teens (15-17, likely 14 at the earliest)

    Is there any spoiler thread for this novel? Since I am actually curious what actually happened to the hero party.

    the Black mage's perspective is coming up soon (ch 26 and 27), but if I recall
    they went to their investigation area and contacted the local dwarves who were being oppressed/enslaved by the local dark elves, and decided to twist their instructions to attack the dark elves king Gandalf (that is what the MTL says for his name :( ) because the hero was overconfident (and the dwarves seemed to claim that their women would sleep with him if he won).

    The hero's sword snapped mid fight (he has repair skill, and was using it on the sword, but not using any replacement materials which weakened it over time), this threw off their fight, and everyone was captured.

    They had curses placed on them interfering with the ability to accumulate and use magical power, and the girls were locked up together only to be slowly taken away one at a time until it was just black mage chick.

    There was an impact that shook the castle and she barely managed to escape

    Another example of an idiot , simply because he looks strong and has a few superior skills for battle. Only to be completely done in by a simple really obvious avoidable thing, make sure to check your equipment before going into battle that’s basic RPG 101.

    He did, he just did not understand the nature and limits of the skill he used to do so, which is also part of those basics.

    Do you think that both dungeons are not in fact two dungeons, but just one dungeon. The dragon gets released when someone exits the maze into the forest.
