The 36th floor resembled the floors between the 11th and the 15th. There were not a lot of dungeon monsters and I was easily able to collect the dungeon items on this floor.
The waterfall poured down incessantly from the ceiling into the basin below, though there was a spot where I could enjoy fishing safely.
Aside from the “Steel Scaled Arowana” and the “Silver Scaled Pirarucu” that I caught in the previous lakes, there were also fish like “Seven-Colored Loach” and “Cherry Blossom Rainbow Trout”. It’s possible to obtain these delicious ingredients and bake them covered in salt.
Because there are only a few people that come here, and the fish are not accustomed to be allured, they are quickly biting after I attached bait to my line and cast it.
They’re biting at every cast.
I only let the line set in for several seconds, before reeling it in and catching the fish. After pulling a few of them, the fish learned from it, and the amount of biting became worse up to a certain degree. I’ll settle for now as I was able to catch a dozen of them.
In addition to the basin of the waterfall, there were places where the spring water came up to your ankles and a dense vegetation grew. I was able to obtain vegetables such as “Famous Spring Eggplant”, “Golden Watermelon”, “Red Emperor Tomato” and “White King Cabbage”.
My personal favorite was above all the “Famous Spring Eggplant”.
Even though it’s so delicate that it can already get damaged by rubbing it lightly, its bright violet skin and plump appearance looked really delicious.
It really was delicious.
When I took a bite, a large amount of juice overflowed from of my mouth, and it had the sweetness of an apple or a strawberry, even though it was an eggplant. Because the aftertaste was a little sour, it was hard for me to stop eating. Even though there were several, I had to put them away before I ate them all up in no time.
They’re raw now. If you’d cook them, they’ll be even more delicious.
The recovery speed of my body’s magic increased just from eating them. Seeing as my physical strength recovered somewhat as well, this is a convenient item. I gathered them for as long as I could.
It normally takes a suitable period before new ones grow, but this a dungeon.
I’ll harvest them again when I return home.
I roughly explored the place and understood that instead of dungeon items, there’s an abundance of ingredients here. Chests and metals seemed to be scarce.
Though delicious items are welcome, it’s disappointing they only grew here.
Perhaps, if I didn’t have any obligations, I would have likely stayed here for a while. It is a very comfortable floor.
A splendid air fills my lungs. You won’t lose interest in the large number of first-rate ingredients and no matter how many of them you eat, you’ll spontaneously come back. The temperature is being kept at a moderate, comfortable level. The overflowing clean water can be used in countless of ways. There’s no boredom because there are a lot of noises coming from large dungeon monsters that you occasionally meet and try to kill each other. Ha, this is considerably good.
I guess it might not be bad to build a cottage near the safe fishing spot by adjusting the Skeleton Centipede in a few ways.
Well, I actually must go back because there are various things going on outside. This must be a dream.
Because of the characteristics of this floor, I advanced without any particular hardships and arrived at the depth of the 40th floor.
There’s a huge waterfall in the center here, and a basin of a corresponding size spreads out. The temperature here is low because of the spray of the waterfall that is flying around along the way the wind blows.
The surroundings are encircled by a rocky mountainside, and the location is overgrown with plants. There are also marshes with high viscosity.
Because the ground is not as steady as it was before, you have to pay attention to your foothold in order to not lose your footing when push comes to shove.
On a battlefield that looked more or less the same as the one where I fought King Crab ・ Crysora, something lay in wait. It's a four-legged beast with a strange appearance that reminds me of either a dog or of a wolf.
Its long, thick forelegs seem to have developed in a way to catch prey. Each paw had four sharp claws. Its thick, powerful hind legs were smaller than its forelegs, but exhibited an excellent sense of stability no matter what the state of the ground below is.
Eight pairs of short, thick, transparent blue feelers grew on its back and were wriggling back and forth. Water charged with electricity dripped from the tips of the feelers. *drip drip (sfx)*
Its tail was as thick as a tree and twice the length of a normal animal, with three claws on the tip that moved as skillfully as fingers. The sharp claws emit a light blue color, and it will likely use it to attack from a blind spot, using it as a fifth limb.
Its whole body is covered in silky, turquoise body hair that looked like it would feel good despite the fact that it can stiffen immediately like an armor of a countless number of blades upon impact. If you touch its body carelessly, that part of you will be cut and torn to pieces.
Serrated teeth grew in the front of the wolf’s mouth and extended forward, like those of an insect. A long tongue flickered from the opening, with a blue liquid covering the tip and dripping down from it.
The head had three transparent blue eyes and was firmly protected by a white exoskeleton resembling a mask. A pair of twisted horns extended from its temporal regions.
And so the floor boss “Lethal Dead ・ Blood Eater ・ Pochi” raised a roar to indicate the start of the battle.
It was an overwhelming howl like the one from Minokichi-kun. As the shock rippled through the surroundings, it made my body shiver. *biribiri (sfx)*
Right before the roar stopped ringing, a countless number of bulges appeared around Lethal Dead ・ Blood Eater ・ Pochi. Things jumped out of them as they split up. I recognized a countless amount of dungeon monsters coming out of the underground.
Four-sided Rebelling Mantis Shrimps, Blue Mermen Knights, War Helmet Octopus and Riot Sharks. All were dungeon monsters that I encountered while coming here, and there appeared to be around fifty.
However, they were not in their normal state.
Some had broken arms, others had crushed heads with their eyeballs hanging out. Some had missing body parts, others had their entrails hanging out.
The one thing in common they had, was that each one of them was dead. Were they so damaged up to the point that there wasn’t even a drop of blood left?
Apparently Lethal Dead ・ Blood Eater ・ Pochi drains the blood of the prey it kills until its appetite is satisfied.
When eating, it can also bite off an extremely low amount of meat, with the majority being left.
Though normally it would be left as is, Lethal Dead ・ Blood Eater ・ Pochi uses 【Parasite】to grow a parasite inside the beasts’ body. It has the trait to make the corpse into a hotbed.
The parasite will absorb nutrients from the host’s body in order to grow up until into a specific stage. It will act as a vanguard for Lethal Dead ・ Blood Eater ・ Pochi, who needs a large amount of blood. It manages the dead body for the sake of hunting, becoming somewhat like a partner.
Normally, it’s my duty to purify the undead from this dungeon but seeing as these corpses are manipulated by a parasite, they’re technically not undead. It’s like that.
You could say that the technique of manipulating a corpse looks similar to that of a certain Shelled Insect Eiyuu.
The vanguard searched for the new prey, me, and the battlefield was immediately filled with wild excitement.
【Floor boss [Lethal Dead ・ Blood Eater ・ Pochi] successfully eliminated. 】
【Achiever Yatendouji is permitted to proceed to the next floor, floor boss [Lethal Dead ・ Blood Eater ・ Pochi] can hereafter be passed without battle 】
【Achiever Yatendouji has been Awarded the 【Behemoth’s Collection of Manipulated Corpses】 】
【 Achiever Yatendouji has been Assigned the Rare Skill 【Master Manipulator – Water Intermediary】 as a bonus for a solo kill】
The bodies of the summoned dungeon monsters were used as sacrificial pawns, while Lethal Dead ・ Blood Eater ・ Pochi moved around silently and at high speed, using the gaps to attack with its sharp claws and the tentacles on its back.
A swing of its sharp claws creates a violent wind. The electrified water that’s gushing from the tentacles can melt any skin it touches and burns the body from the inside with an electric shock.
Because of 【Thunder Attack Nullification】 the damage probably wouldn’t be of such an extent that you could call it high, but I don’t think I would want to be covered in that strong acidic liquid even when using it.
Aside from its individual ability, he was pretty troublesome because he was accompanied by its subordinates. Other floor bosses up to now didn’t have those. In the end, I succeeded in subduing it.
The price for killing a myriad of dungeon monsters was that my halberd became almost useless, but I guess that was unavoidable.
I threw it into my item box because it’s still in a state where it could potentially be repaired. In its stead, I take out my 【Giant’s Long-Lasting Carving Knife】.
Even though it’s pretty much a kitchen knife, this magic item temporarily becomes something like a long sword for someone of my physique. While this kind of sword is hardly any better than other long swords, but it was better than nothing and above all there’s the advantage that it’d be easy to make fresh sashimi.
I decided to stick with this for a while.
Nevertheless, while my abilities are now limited and I’m severely slowed, you might say that it was still up to a level that I’m able to manage somehow or another.
After collecting the treasure chest and the corpse, I pushed my feet forward to advance to the 41st floor.
On the 41st floor, there wasn’t any land.

NEEDS EDITING, focus on the Google Translation on bottom if possible. ~Miraclegrass
Translated---> Russian---> English
I did what I could with this. It was really difficult to interpret but I did my best. I changed it so that it would make sense at least. The first edit is below so if anyone wants to make it better, just go ahead. ~Simly
Edited: grammar, rephrasing. ~Azoraxxx
Edited: a little bit extras, nothing important ~Batughan
As I reached the 36th floor, the monsters were quite weak and there were just a few of them. I caught them because they were easy prey.
At the place where the water fell from the ceiling, a large basin had been formed, making it suitable for fishing. Apart from the fish I caught on floors 11 to 15, I was able to catch [Rainbow Loach] and [Cherry Rainbow Trouts] that, with just a tiny sprinkle of salt, were quite a tasty meal.
It looks like the fishermen don't come here especially often as the fishes are not frightened. Fishing here is very easy. Not even half a minute after casting they come to bite the hook.
I have some experience in fishing, but this place will spoil me greatly if I continue so I catch a few dozen fish and then stop.
Moreover, the plants that grow in the cold water of the basin were a real luxury.
There were: [Labyrinth Water Eggplant], [Bright Golden Watermelon], [Red Life Tomato], and [White King Cabbage].
Out of all those, I personally took a liking to the [Labyrinth Water Eggplant].
The skin is so smooth that one touch made your finger slip, its purple flesh was really tasty. If it's so tasty when it's raw, then what will happen if it's cooked. Just by eating it, the rate of mana recovery in my body increased and I restored my endurance. I scored quite a useful ingredient.
Normally, eggplants need a long time to grow, but here in the maze they would already grow back by the time I would be returning to the surface.
Slightly examining its consistency, I realized that there are many different kinds of herbal ingredients, but in exchange there were a limited number of boxes with treasures and magical metals.
We'd certainly welcome some delicious ingredients, but it's still a pity. Perhaps there could be people who don't care about anything since they are comfortable that way.
The air was clean and fresh, there were a lot of high-end products here, the temperature was fixed and didn't change, there are a lot sources of clean water as well as communication with some huge monsters I encountered here. This place isn't boring and it's very pleasant. Put the cart over there [in 1000 bones], slightly isolate the place with fishes and would be quite a place.
In fact, since many things waited for me outside, all this will remain only in my dreams. I had to leave this rare place to go to the next one.
On the 40th floor was another huge waterfall and thus of the same sized basin underneath. The falling water around it was creating cool and sharp gusts of wind.
Around it lay many huge stones covered with plants. There is a pit under the waterfall in a lake, which had slippery banks.
On this battlefield, waiting with a huge body the size of the crystalline king crab and resembling a wolf or a dog, was a fantastic creature on 4 paws.
To catch prey, each of its thick, long legs ended with four sharp claws.
The front legs, slightly less than the rear, gave it excellent stability while standing on the ground.
From the back it grew fat, short, translucent tentacles, between which I could see electricity coursing from one tentacle to the next.
Its tail is like a tree that has the double of the length of its body, which ends with three sharp, finger like claws. These claws are likely meant to attack from the enemies' blind spot.
Its body is covered with a blue-green wool and looks pleasant to the touch, but at the moment of impact it transforms into the armor of countless needles. If it's awkwardly grabbed with bare hands, it could tear the skin off all the way to the meat itself.
Its mouth was long and, like a beetle, had tusks which flowed from the mouth covered in blue liquid and it constantly stuck out a long snake like tongue.
It had three eyes, one of which was in the middle of its forehead that protected by the hard external skeleton.
This boss fight, with the [Undead Bloody Lizard "Pochi"], started off with a battle of howling. The howling was overwhelming, like when I fought Minokichi-kun. The shock waves it released, made an electric shock pass through my body.
When this happened, countless monsters started to climb from the underground craters.
[Four Guns Storm Shrimps], [Blue Knight Mermaids], [Helmet Fighting Octopus] and [Lightning Shark]. The monsters I had encountered along the way here, there were 50 of them in total.
That's not all. Their bodies had missing limbs or crushed skulls, their eyes had fallen out of their sockets, they missed parts of their bodies or their insides were sticking out. They were all dead. No matter how heavy their wounds were, I didn't see a single drop of blood.
Pochi seemed to fill his belly with them as he drank the blood, tore out their guts and bit them vigorously; of course, they did not survive.
Normally, you'd throw the prey away, but Pochi apparently has the ability to allow parasites to infect enemies by patching them up.
Parasites absorb the bodies and blood of corpses using it as nutrients. They can develop and serve as the vanguard for Pochi because, to hunt other creatures, it manages corpses.
Thus it can manage them in the dungeon where the undead evaporate almost immediately, because in fact, they are not undead, but parasitic life forms.
They manage other people's bodies in a similar way a hero rises demagogically. The vanguard saw me as a potential new production and fearlessly rushed into battle.
[Dungeon boss [Undead Bloody Lizard "Pochi"] successfully eliminated]
[Achiever [Yatendouji] recognized the right of further progress, continuation to the boss floor [Undead Bloody Lizard "Pochi"] will be available with a choice of advancement without a fight]
[Achiever [Yatendouji] as a bonus for the first elimination of the boss will be sent a box of treasure [Gathered Corpse Commanding Large Beasts]]
[Achiever [Yatendouji] as a bonus for [Solo Kill] will be sent rare ability [Master Medium Water Control]]
By using parasites as pawns, Pochi, at a convenient moment, attacked me with sharp fangs and tentacles.
From the sweep of its claws I could feel sharp wind and by a single touch of the tentacles, the skin melts and roasts entrails.
Because of my ability [Null Electric Damage], the damage was not so great, but I already had very strong toxic fluids.
Before I wasn't able to efficiently battle with the boss, so improvised and solved some problems, but in the end I was able to successfully remove its tail.
In exchange for this, because of the numerous parasite monsters, my halberd almost became unusable. With this level of damage it can still be repaired, so I put it away in the glove box and instead took out the [Giant’s Long-Lasting Carving Knife].
The former kitchen knife was, for me, a huge magic sword. A sword is certainly not the best thing suited to kill many opponents, but against living organisms, it was good enough. It was still better than fighting with my bare hands.
For some time, I'll fight with the sword. As expected, the monsters were dealt with in a swift manner. Anyway, I'll do all I can with it.
After collecting the treasure box and the carcasses, I went to the 41st floor. There was no ground there.
Google Translation Day 207
With 36 floors, monsters, as well as 11 to 15, there was little, I catch them because there was easy. The place where the water falls from the ceiling, forming a boiler, is well suited for safe fishing. Besides the fish I caught on floors 11 to 15, one could catch [Seven Color Eel] and [Cherry Rainbow Trout] that even just sprinkle with salt, were quite tasty food.
Especially the fishermen do not get here often because the fish is not frightening.
He pecked a couple of seconds after casting. I have to some extent learned fishing, but these places will spoil me greatly, because, catch a few dozen pieces, I stopped.
Moreover, cold water boiler plants grown luxury.
Depending on where [Crushing Parasites Eggplant], [Bright Golden Watermelon], [Red Life Tomato], and [White-Blue Cabbage].
Of those, I personally really liked the [Crushing Parasites Eggplant].
The skin is so soft that one touch slipped, purple flesh really tasty. If it is so tasty raw, then what will happen if his cook. Just by eating it, the rate of recovery of manna in my body increased, the endurance was fine. Quite useful ingredient, because I scored it as he could.
On normal, so that they need a lot of time up, but here the maze on the way back because they already grow again.
Slightly examining constituency, I realized that there are many different kinds of herbal ingredients, but in exchange, a limited number of boxes with treasures and magical metals.
We certainly welcome delicious ingredients, but still a little pity. Perhaps there could be living people who do not care about nothing. In so comfortable there it was.
Easy and delicious air, a lot of high-end products, fixed in one position the temperature a lot crowded sources of clean water, as well as a bit of communication with sometimes huge monsters encountered here, because here is not boring and very tasty. Put the cart over there [in 1000 bones] slightly isolate fish place, and will be quite not bad.
Well, in fact, many things waiting for me outside, because all that will remain only in dreams. I had to leave because it is a rare place to go next.
On the 40th floor was a huge waterfall, and thus of the same size pot underneath. From falling water around it was cool and sharp gusts of wind blew.
Around lay a lot of huge stones covered with plants. Pit passed under a waterfall in a lake, with slippery banks.
On this battlefield waiting with a huge body, the size of crystalline king crab, resembling wolves or dogs, a fantastic creature on 4 paws.
To catch prey, each of its thick, long legs, ended with four sharp claws.
The front legs, slightly less than the rear gave it stability, excellent stability while standing on the ground.
From the back he grew fat, short, translucent tentacles, between which the level of electricity.
His tail, like a tree that has been in two length of its body, which ends, like moving your fingers, three sharp claws. These claws are likely to attack from the blind spot.
His body is covered with a blue green wool, pleasant to the touch, but at the moment of impact, it was transformed into the armor of countless needles. If awkwardly grab it with his bare hands, you tear the skin to the meat itself.
His mouth grew long, like a beetle, the tusks, which flowed from the mouth of blue liquid, and are constantly stuck out a long, like a snake's tongue.
He had three eyes, one of which was in the middle of the forehead, the protected hard external skeleton.
This boss floor [Undead Bloody Lizard "Pochi"], began to battle their howling. This howling was the same overwhelming, like Minokichi-kun. From the shock waves went and passed through the body electric shock.
On this call, from the underground craters formed around, climbed countless monsters.
[Four Guns Storm Shrimps], [Blue Knight Mermaids], [Helmet Fighting Octopus], and [Lightning Shark]. The monsters I've met along the way here, there were in the amount of 50.
That's just not up to par. Who then it was split hand, or was crushed skull and climbed eyes or part of the body was missing, or the insides sticking out. They were all dead on no matter how much they were heavy wounds, were not seen and blood drop.
Pochi seen them fill his belly, drank the blood, guts torn out and bit her, of course, after that do not survive.
Normally, then throw prey, but Pochi apparently has the ability to allow the parasites to infect victims with the help of which it is to patch them.
Parasites of the absorbing body and blood of corpses nutriiny can develop and serve the vanguard for Pochi because to hunt other creatures it manages corpses.
Thus it can manage them in the dungeon where undead evaporates almost immediately, because in fact they are not undead, and parasitic life form.
Like the hero flies demagogic, managing other people's bodies in a similar way. Vanguard saw in me a new production, fearlessly rushes into battle.
[Dungeon boss [Undead Bloody Lizard "Pochi"] successfully eliminated]
[Achiever [Yatendouji] recognized the right of further progress, continue to the boss floor [Undead Bloody Lizard "Pochi"] will be available with a choice of advancement without a fight]
[Achiever [Yatendouji] as a bonus for the first elimination of the boss will be sent a box of treasure [Nearest Body of Honorary Hippopotamus]]
[Achiever [Yatendouji] as a bonus for [Solo Kill] will be sent rare ability [Master Medium Water Control]]
By using parasites as bargaining pawns, Pochi, at a convenient moment, attacked with sharp fangs and tentacles back.
From the sweep of its claws sharp wind was born, and by the touch of the tentacles, the skin melts and roasted entrails.
Because of my ability [Null Electric Damage], the damage was not so great, but already he had a very strong toxic fluids.
Before I did not have then battle with the boss, the manager improvised, because what were some problems, but I was able to successfully remove it.
In exchange for this, because of the numerous parasitized monsters, my halberd came almost unusable. True level, even when it can be repaired, so I put it away in the glove box, but instead took [Giant’s Long-Lasting Carving Knife ].
When the former kitchen knife, for me it was a huge magic sword. Sword certainly not best suited to kill many opponents, but against living organisms, he was good. Especially better with him than with his bare hands.
For some time, I'll go with him. And yet, as expected, the disabled will soon become very tight. Anyway, we will do all we can while you can.
After collecting the treasure box and the carcass, I went to 41 floors. On the 41st floor, there was no land (ground).
