Hello there! This is a new series titled Dungeon busters! though it had no project page yet since i’m in the process of creating a new website for this translation gig so please don’t expect to see a project page for this for now.
without further ado. please enjoy.
My name is Kazuhiko Ezoe. A middle-aged man who is ab out to turn 40 this year and lives in Edogawa Ward, Tokyo. I am a management consultant that left the company 10 years ago to start a small business consultant company. I’m also a qualified social worker so I make ends meet by doing social insurance-related work for small and medium enterprises, especially on those situate in Edogawa, Koto Ward and Chiba prefecture. I also work as training instructor occasionally. I work with a friend from elementary who currently owns a pachinko machine chain and has a referral from a diagnostic association. That said my annual income is at most 6 million.
I who has no intention on getting married, is a <land-locked island> in Edogawa. I bough a small 30 years old house in the district and I mostly work for two days then rest, then work for another 2 days then rest for 2 days. I lived quite a carefree life with three days off a week.
[What is this hole?…]
Shikabane chou, the place I live in Edogawa is a vast railroad void between Mizue Station of Toei Shinjuku line and Koiwa station of the Sobu line. Here you can buy a house for less than 30 million yen and was determined to live modestly here as my final residence along with a small garden.
It was late last night when I felt a small tremor and when the morning came a small square hall about 80 centimeter wide appeared at the corner of the garden. When I shone a flashlight inside of it, I see a stone case. It was baffling.
I checked the time at my watch and it shows that it was 9:55. I have today and tomorrow as day off that’s why I have nothing to do today. Thus, with flashlight and a lighter in hand, I descend down the mysterious stairs. It continues towards the bottom of the neighbor’s house. I don’t want to get into trouble with the neighborhood so I guess I should cover this with a fence or something. While thinking about such things, I descend carefully while keeping the lighter lit. it seems like there’s oxygen around.
[Oi, oi this is quite deep]
It feels like I went down for about 30 meters. I finally reached the end of the stairs and I breathe a sigh of relief. Looking back at the stair I find it quite steep and thought that this would be a pain in the ass to climb.
[This is quite a large basement]
I aimed the flashlight in all directions. The place is more or less 15-meter square with a ceiling height of three meters. The floor is made of stone and have no visible gaps between them. While I was observing the place, I stopped the light at the front
[A door huh]
There was a sturdy metal door that has an estimated height of two meter. It was painted black, that’s why I haven’t noticed it immediately.
[Is this an air raid shelter? Or was this a military installation from the war?]
The metal handles don’t have any welding marks, as if it machined. I grasped the handle to check the inside thinking it was necessary before I report it to the authority. Suddenly, I heard a mysterious voice.
[First contractor confirmed. Activating <Dungeon system> base on the world’s law. One revolution left till all the dungeons to be activated….]
[Eh? Where does this voice come from?]
The voice that can be described as machine like and inorganic resound unexpectedly loud making me cover my ears instinctively. However, for some reason the volume of it didn’t change. It feels like it was ringing inside of my head.
[Character card <Bewitching Kunoichi> Akane. The First Contractor will be provided with increased card holding limit, Ability slot expansion and skill selection function. Unique ability <Card Gacha> had been set.]
[Huh? Kunoichi? Cards?]
[Dungeon roulette completed coordinates fixed.
Dungeon name: Abyss.
Drop Reward Level: A.
Amount of enhancement factor acquired: A.
I expect you to take step forward towards a new evolution]
[What the heck is this?]
The sudden appearance of a mysterious basement, a strange door, the headache inducing voice and incomprehensible contents of it that make even the unusual phenomenon of a floating object seems trivial to me now. The card emits a light of its own hence the need of the flashlight is gone.
I observe the card that is floating in front of me. In the card you can find some sort of a picture of a woman. She had black hair and looks like a ninja. I thought it was a card from some card game. I picked it up to feel it and its texture is feels matte. When I turned it over, there are words written on it.
Title: The Bewitching Kunoichi
Skill: Kunaijutsu Lvl 1 / Enemy Search Lvl1 / Sex Technique Lvl1
[Bewitching Kunoichi Akane? Er? A versatile character that specialized in shortrange attack using Kunai and daggers and uses shuriken as a mean for long range attack. In addition, she had good sexual skills. Her height is 163 cm. Three sizes are B99 W57 H87…]
As I read, the card’s light suddenly grew stronger and quickly let go of the card and involuntarily turned my face away. The light disappeared after a moment and the darkness once again fell
[Are you, my master?]
A voice suddenly echoes from the darkness. This time it’s not ringing in my head. I hurriedly turned on the flashlight and in front of me is a dark-haired woman standing.
[That’s quite tactless]
In an instant she was able to stole my flashlight and turned it off wrapping us with pitch black darkness.
[Please rest assure, the first layer would become a safety zone shortly]
[what the hell are you?]
I asked the lady who was in the dark nervously. She smells faintly of flowers. Was it a scent bag? Then, her body emerges from the dark as the floor and ceiling become luminous and not long after, bluish light has illuminated the room. Then, a beautiful woman gracefully bowed her head.
[Nice to meet you master]
[Akane…san. Ah! I’m Kazuhiko Ezoe]
Even while saying that my eyes are glued to the woman in front of me. She wears something like a fine grain chain mail, with black clothes over it. The lower parts of it have slit resembling that of the Chinese dress. Perhaps it so that she can move easily. From the clothes her thin beautifully shaped limps were stretched out and her chest is amazing. Her chainmail is tightly snugging into her body that makes her breast more conspicuous, just like a giant meat bun.
[Ufufufu… I can feel your eyes on me]
Saying that I turned my face away. The bewitching beauty gives of a good scent that tickles my nostrils.
[Don’t worry about it master. I am your servant and every inch of my body belongs to you. I also knows how to please a gentleman and if you so wish I can do whatever you want]
When I said that while turning away my face a breath was blown to my ears making me jump back in a hurry.
“Uhu. Are you calm?”
When I finally realized that she was teasing me, I let out a big sigh which sure enough, calmed me down. The best way to recover from confusion is to look away from the situation and because now that I am calm, I can now start to sort through all of the information.
[Sorry, but I want you to give me a minute]
[Yes, my lord]
I walked in circles as I tries to organize the information that I currently have. Then I realize that the information I have is lacking.
(A sudden appearance of a subterranean space, an unknown voice and incomprehensible content, a shiny card that summoned the beautiful woman in front of me….)
After a minute, I stopped.
[I would like to ask you something Akane. What is the dungeon system?]
Akane then moistened her lips with her tongue.
