Stranger’s Handbook – Chapter 61

Ok guys, I made a mistake in translating the title of the 1st Book. It shouldn’t be the ‘Downfall of the Empire’ as I interpreted it at that time (since that’s how grim the things looked back then xD), but rather ‘The Dawn of the Empire’ (dawn as in daybreak). I’m really sorry for misleading you ><
Yurushite kudasaaaaaai!

  1. Thank you for the Chapters so far~
    And here I thought this was another chapter with story. lol
    Anyway, Thank you for the Release!

  2. I was almost going to start a post full of offensive words about your parents and your joke-like comments because the next button wasn’t working, but then NU updated and I saw chapter 62 there.

    Thanks for your hard work.

  3. “Meril

    A baron’s daughter.
    He had to separate from Albert because of the difference in their social status.”

    So she is he or he is she? Or just mistake? xD

  4. Feel too many people mentioned who haven’t shown up yet. Also my curiosity about the others summoned along with Zest hasn’t been mentioned, they said some were killed but he’d have the chance to meet the rest again later if he followed instruction. Lastly I was highly expecting Zest to take Albert’s sister, but she also hasn’t been mentioned since, I find this odd as what self respecting other world novel with a harem, ignores the beautiful Kemonobito?
