Demon King of Phantom Thief Chapter 15

You know what translator(at least me) hate the most? It’s a long chapter! Well, this chapter isn’t that long but… every words count right?. That’s all.

As always, i am still not that perfect so if there is typo or grammar error, please tell me in the comment.

Thank you and enjoy the chapter.

Ginlow Destroyed the Slave Trader Army

Slave trader Talem was a man who thought ahead.
Talem was the first to invent the Elves slave leasing system.

Instead of customer went to the prostitute, the elves went to the customer.
This system., albeit temporarily, was able to satisfy the customer’s desire for ownership.
Naturally, the cost jumped, but customers found it worth the money.

There was also a bonus that someone did not need to take care the prostitute.
The elves only needed a poor room.
Indeed, Talem thought it was a good way.

The problem was the availability of the elves.
The number of elves was limited, and it was impossible to capture and made them breed.
The kid would have to wait decades to grew up to be used as a slave.

In that case, Talem maybe would be dead by then.
The best thing to do was collect the elves from the elves village.

That’s why this large-scale expedition was planned.
50 hired mercenaries.
All of them were equipped with the large shields and javelin prepared by Talem.
The effectiveness of javelin against archers was heard from senior traders.

(I’ve got all the tools I need. I just have to wait for it to finish …)

Talem was slowly smoking in the carriage and calculating how much money the elves that were captured would make.

“Sir, we are about to arrive at the elves village. We’ll leave about 10 men as your escort and the rest will carry out the mission.”

When the chief of the mercenary talked to him, Talem confirmed that.

“Good, good, I’m going to go. I’ll look at elf hunt once more and unless your men find a new village, this will be the last.”

――This decision had determined Talem’s fate.

The mercenary continued.

There were 30 people in the front row of the carriage where Talem was in and 10 people on each side.
Javelin mercenary form a unit and advance through the forest.

Mercenary Chief’s Skill-[Presence Detection] alert the mercenary from the presence of an enemy.

“Stop! Prepare for battle!”

The carriages stopped with a loud noise.
At that moment-an arrow rain fell from above the forest.

Hyukakakakakakakakaka!

Most of them were stopped by the large shields.
Talem looked at it from the carriage and lit a new cigarette.

Naturally, the barrage of arrows stopped.

“Good! Proceed!”

The moment the chief of the mercenary said it out-[Presence Detection] had detected the sign of something abnormal.

“Wait, stop!”

The ground shaking was neither that of the mercenary nor that of a horse-drawn carriage.

――From the depths of the forest, a giant body that was so big appeared.

It was in the shape of a human.
Thick chest, eight-pack abs, and large shoulder muscles.
But the whole body was shining like polished silver.

“What is that …”
“No way …”

The area neared the elven village was not an area where monsters appeared.
It’s an unexpected event.

“Sir, a monster had appeared!”
“A monster? That’s unusual. Well, if there are 50 mercenaries, it is nothing then.”

Talem told the chief mercenary a word from the carriage.
Talem’s calmness did not shake.
If someone was so nervous, a slave trader wasn’t suitable job for them.
–However.

“I’m not a monster …”

The silver giant spoke human language.

“I’m under Demon King-sama, one of the four heavenly king, swordsman Ginlow … I’ve been helping the Elves in the order of Demon King-sama. “

When all of them heard that the monster was one of the four heavenly king, they shouted in surprise.

“The Demon King! Isn’t there a story that he was defeated by the hero the other day !? The Death of the Demon King … I heard people brag about it and it looked great, but … Apparently, it’s seemingly false information. “

Talem laughed and said, but the mercenaries felt the aura emanating from the giant on his skin.
The mercenaries were overwhelming the monster with number, but the mercenary chief thought that they must be careful.
If they could not win quickly, they could be injured if they fought poorly.

“Get ready!”

Hearing the voice of the chief mercenaries, the spear men in the front row took a stance.

“Fire!”

Javelins that weighed incomparably to arrows were thrown at the silver giant.

Dododododododododododododo!

All the javelins pierced the huge body.
However, Ginlow did not move a bit.

“Wha …!”

Ginlow pulled a javelin from his belly and bent it slightly.

“It’s weak … but this is a javelin that was thrown with the intention of killing.”

The quiet voice resound in the forest.

“The right to kill is given only to those who are prepared to be killed …”

Ginlow pulled out all the remaining javelins and bundled them together in his right hand.

“You are trying to kill me … then prepare yourself.”

-No one saw the silver flash.

Sud Do Do Do Do Do Do Do Do Do!

The thirty javelins thrown together pierced the head, chest, and belly of three rows of spear men.
The mercenaries were skewered and fell down while convulsing.
Talem who was watching, dropped the cigarette from his mouth.

“What is that … Just now … Hey, mercenary chief! Mercenary chief!”

Talem shouted from the carriage, but the mercenary chief was far from him.

“Retreat!”

The mercenary chief abandoned Talem and fled with the remaining 20 men.

“The javelin can’t reach them, huh … the one who should also prepare …”

The silver giant picked up the pebbles and threw them casually.
At the next moment, the head of a mercenary running in the forest burst with its contents.
At that moment, Talem trembled.

“Get out! Alston! Get out!”

In the carriage, there was a man who was still silent.
A direct bodyguard of Talem – Alston.
Among adventurers, he was known as first-class.
Slave trader naturally had many enemies.
Talem had spare money to hire a bodyguard.
Therefore, a powerful person like Alston was obtained.

-It’s finally time to help.

“Don’t panic, sir. It’s a powerful monster, but there’s no creature that can’t be cut.”

Alston slowly descended from the carriage.

“Well then, monster. I’ll try to fight you. I need to work too for my salary.”

With that said, Alston pulled out a long sword.

“A glowing and solid body.”
“You can try it …”

Two swords popped out of the silver palm as if penetrating the flesh.
It was exactly the same length as Alston’s sword.

“You look really confident. Then … I’ll go!”

Alston kicked the dead leaves and ran through the forest.
The aim was leg — a weak point that could not be avoided by tall opponents.

Only a flash was seen from the running man — at that moment.

Bang

Ginlow swung his sword and hit it against Aleston’s shoulder.
The humerus bone and collarbone were shattered, and Aleston rolling and rolling over.(TN: The humerus is a long bone in the arm that runs from the shoulder to the elbow. Thanks a lot wikipedia-sama.)

“Uh, u, arm … my arm is aaaaaahhhhhh!”
“Rest assured, I only scratch it.”

Zusin, zusin, the silver giant was approaching.
A giant palm grabbed and lifted Aleston’s head.

“You, why do you serve slave trader? Is there a cause?”

Pain in his shoulder had not yet disappeared.
Alston replied, scared at the giant in front of him.

“That’s, they have a good payment! And sometimes I can sleep with an elf!”
“This person, is not a warrior …”

Ginlow crushed Aleston’s skull and threw it.

“Now……”

Talem who heard the footsteps was trembling hard.
It’s great that he hadn’t faint yet.
The large silver body peeled off the carriage’s ceiling.

“Are you the slave trader?”
“My, only, only my life!”

Talem plead to Ginlow.
The cigarette that fell at Talem’s feet got wet from urine.

“Open your mouth”
“What, huh?”
“Don’t make me say it three times. Open your mouth.”
“Hah, yes!”

Talem opened his mouth, still trembling.
There, a silver liquid was poured.

“Au, au …!”
“I gave you a part of my body. This is a contract.”

Ginlow said.

“Return all the elves you have captured to this village.”
“Yes! That’s of course!”
“You must come alone. If the contract is not fulfilled …”

A huge palm grabbed Talem’s head.

“My body will cut your body, especially your stomach, alive.”
“Hah! Yes!”

The moment Talem responded, the object poured into his body moved with zudong.
Talem vomited with a scream.

“Don’t forget your current pain, then have a nice dream”

When Ginlow took his hand from Talem’s head, Talem fell into the ground while vomiting and convulsed.

“Don’t worry, everyone!”

A loud shout echoed throughout the forest.

“Your captive companion will soon return with this man. I will assure you! Then farewell!”

Ginlow spread his arms and wheels appeared from his shoulders.
The wheels kicked the dead leaves and ran to the devil castle.

What was left behind was an almost unconscious slave trader and a dead adventurer.
There were numerous corpses scattered around, and the smell of blood was rising from them.

“……………”

The elves on the tree descended to the ground.

“This is the power of the Demon King …”
“This …… We … we have to thank …”

The terrible sight engraved the power of the Demon King in the eyes of the elves.

-One month later.

The day had come when the elves in captivity would return to the village.

  1. Thanks for the chapter!

    It’s kind of late for me today so I didn’t look for spelling or grammar mistakes, though I did see this one:

    >Don’t be panic

    Drop the be and that’s it

    Cheers!

  2. Well, then since no one did I will. Native English speaker so if things that sound weird usually are, but no promises that I catch everything. Anyway.

    “Instead of customer went to prostitute, the elves went to the customer.”
    Either; “Instead of the customer went to a prostitute, the elves went to the customer.”
    Or; “Instead of the customer going to the prostitute, the elves went to the customer.”

    the “required money jumped” > “the cost jumped” (Required money just sounds off)

    “someone did not need to took care the prostitute.” > “someone did not need to take care of the prostitute.”

    Although not technically wrong I think; The problem, however, was the availability of the elves, the product.
    Should be brought down to; The problem was the availability of the elves.

    “Good, good, I’m going to go. I’ll look at elves hunting once more, unless they find a new village, this will be the last.”
    To
    “Good, good, I’m going to go. I’ll look at hunting elves once more unless they found a new village, this will be the last.”
    Elves hunting means the elves are doing the hunting, hunting elves means they are being hunted. Also, they needs to be specified in this case, as “they find a new village” would mean the mercenaries found a second village, letting them raid two, vs “unless they found a new village”, which means the elves found a new village and abandoned the one he is going to so no elves for him, I can’t read the raw so I don’t know what the original means.
    Alt if he is referring to the mercenaries finding another village;
    “Good, good, I’m going to go. I’ll watch the elf hunt once more and unless your men found a new village, this will be the last.”

    “It’s an out-of-calculation event.” > “It’s an unexpected event.”

    “If someone was so nervous, slave trader wasn’t suitable for them.”
    To
    “If someone was so nervous, a slave trader wasn’t a suitable job for them.”

    “The mercenary were overwhelming the monster with number, but the mercenary thought that they must be careful.”
    To
    “The mercenaries were overwhelming the monster with numbers, but the mercenaries thought they must be careful.”

    Just making it all plural as there are 50 of them. If that last bit was just a mercenary (probably the chief) then it would stay the same, but you would include that it is the chief thinking that. Like;
    “The mercenaries were overwhelming the monster with numbers, but the mercenary chief thought that they must be careful.”

    “If they did not win in a short time, they could injure themselves if they did poorly.”
    To
    “If they could not win quickly, they could be injured if they fought poorly.”
    This is another technically correct but sounds really off one. Also, injure themselves means self-inflicted injuries (such as suicide for the most extreme example).

    “A javelin weight that was incomparable to an arrow fell onto a silver giant.”
    To
    “Javelins that weighed incomparably to arrows are thrown at the silver giant.”
    Or
    “Javelins, which weight that was incomparable to arrows, are thrown at the silver giant.”

    The issue is plurals, as there are many Javelins. The original is stating that only one fell onto him. When what is happening is the main group of mercenaries just threw thirty of javelins at him. I get that the original is (probably) more poetic, but it doesn’t translate well here.

    “The javelin can’t reach them, huh … the one who should also prepared …” > “The javelin can’t reach them, huh … the one who should also prepare…”

    “Rest assured, i only scratch it.” > “Rest assured, I only scratched it.”

    “Pain in the shoulder had not yet to disappeared.” > “The pain in his shoulder had not yet disappeared.” (admittedly this sentence itself is redundant considering he just had his shoulder crushed, so of course, he is still in pain from it)

    “i can sleep with an elf!” > “I can sleep with an elf!” (I when referencing self is always capital)

    “My body will cut your body, especially your stomach alive.” > “My body will cut your body, especially your stomach, alive.”

    “Your captive companion” > “Your captive companions” plural thing, he is definitely bringing more than one elf.

    “and a fainted adventurer.” Not so much of an edit, but usually crushing someone’s skull is fatal, especially if he threw the head after. Depending on if Aleston lived or not, that either would be another corpse, or he didn’t crush his skull (crushing kinda implies full/near full cave in, which again is extremely lethal). If he still survives then;
    “Ginlow crushed Aleston’s skull and threw it.”
    Would be more like;
    “There was a crack from Aleston’s skull, and Ginlow threw him aside.”
    The latter being more disingenuous with how much damage was inflicted, allowing for him to not die.

    And that is about it.

    1. When I thought that I was great… So it still sounds off… Much to learn… When will this end(lol). I’m glad that you are pointing the part that sounds off. And you even correct them! Really, thank you very much.
