ROS – Chapter 7 – First Live Stream

At the entrance to the dungeon.

I stood there dumbfounded, gazing at the sight in front of me. A large amount of equipment was piled up and each was worth a fortune, with a single camera alone costing 500,000 yen.

Sakuya showed up with a truck loaded with high-performance microphones and other advanced pieces of equipment.

“What… what’s all this?” (Sora)

“It’s streaming equipment.” (Sakuya)

“Students can’t normally afford all of these things, right…?” (Sora)

I did have some desire to buy some streaming equipment aside from my smartphone. However, the equipment used by streamers is extremely expensive.

I am aware that they put a lot of effort into creating an environment where users can enjoy high-quality visuals and sounds during live streams.

However, Sakuya managed to effortlessly prepare it.

With her silver hair swaying, Sakuya let out a light laugh.

“That’s because I can afford it.” (Sakuya)

She showed off a magic card1 that she had held between her fingertips.

“Co-could it be… from your father?” (Sora)

“No, it’s not. This is the money I earned from a mobile game I created. You know, those ads that often appear? ‘Solve the puzzle!’ and such.” (Sakuya)

“Ahh, those…” (Sora)

So Sakuya was the one who created that Chinese-themed game…

I had tried playing it once, and while it was a simple puzzle game, it had an addictive quality to it.

“I have no intention of using a single penny from that shitty old man. I prepared this with my own funds, using my own power… for you!” (Sakuya)

“T-Thank you…” (Sora)

With her beautiful appearance, she had a triumphant look on her face.

She looks kinda cute like this…

“But isn’t this going overboard…? I’m practically a nobody.” (Sora)

“What are you saying! Sora, you should have a better grasp of your own popularity. Right now, you are the number one trending topic. You’re at the top of the trending rankings on the streaming platform, and even have the highest increase in subscribers in the past month, and furthermore…” (Sakuya)

She started listing off a string of achievements, but they did not quite resonate with me.

Certainly, my number of subscribers had increased significantly, and more people were tuning in to my streams.

Ever since the incident with the special-grade cursed object, I have been receiving oddly strange emails as well.

Most of them were from companies, though.

“Even if you say that, I still don’t quite understand…” (Sora)

“Anyway, you’re amazing. And I am done with the streaming environment preparations.” (Sakuya)

That’s a huge relief.

Even though I call it dungeon streaming, using just a smartphone results in severe camera shake and a significant drop in video quality.

With this setup, I should be able to provide a stream with clear images and no camera shake, which will help reduce the viewers’ stress.

“Will Sakuya be diving too?” (Sora)

“I’m not an adventurer. Fighting is impossible.” (Sakuya)

In that case, it seems like I will have to continue diving alone.

Being alone feels lonely, doesn’t it?

Those occasional nights when you are alone in bed and long for human warmth… It’s a feeling similar to that.

There’s nothing quite as lonely as clinging to a body pillow and trying to endure.

“And that’s where this comes in.” (Sakuya)

Sakuya showed me a drone.

“It’s a camera drone. It has full 360-degree coverage, and will capture every movement you make.” (Sakuya)

“Wowww!” (Sora)

“What do you think? This is pretty amazing, isn’t it?” (Sakuya)

As I continued to praise it, Sakuya’s nose started growing longer and longer.

Huh… her nose is still growing.

“Stealth, automatic evasion… It has a wide range of features and applications. It’s the most high-performance thing I developed!” (Sakuya)

“D-Did you make it yourself…?” (Sora)

“You may call me Sakuya the Inventor! HAHAHA!” (Sakuya)

Indeed, she is the daughter of an IT company after all.

“When it comes to my father, my thoughts get all jumbled up… But when I think about you, my mind suddenly becomes clear. It’s strange.” (Sakuya)

“W-Well, even if you say that…” (Sora)

I think that is just a coincidence.

I don’t really know much about its functions and applications, but I do know that it is quite amazing.

“By the way, Sora, is it fine to stream here today?” (Sakuya)

“Yeah, there were a lot of people in the Shibuya and Shinjuku dungeons. It seemed impossible, so I chose this place instead.”

I actually intended to stream at the usual location, but for some reason, there were a lot of people there.

The moment I was spotted, I was about to be surrounded by a crowd, so I used my disappearing technique to escape.

I wonder what’s going on there…

“Today, let’s explore the Roppongi Dungeon Farm.” (Sora)

While it may differ from dungeons specifically designed for exciting streams, having a lot of people around also decreases the chances of encountering monsters.

“That might be a good idea. The increase in people was probably due to Ookami Rika’s return and her exploration was going to be held at the Shibuya Dungeon.” (Sakuya)

“Ah, I see.” (Sora)

That’s a relief. It seems like she was able to make a successful return to streaming.

So, if I had explored the Shibuya Dungeon instead, there would have been a chance to meet her.

“Let’s start by making people get to know you first.” (Sakuya)

According to Sakuya, it is better for me to show my true self.

Considering that taking up a different persona would eventually be exposed, it’s easier and better to be authentic.

“Make sure to show off some onmyoji techniques or something during the stream.” (Sakuya)

“Okay.” (Sora)

“You got this.” (Sakuya)

I wonder if divination2 techniques and astrological readings would suffice.

“Alright then, Sakuya, start the stream.” (Sora)

“Huh… already? You haven’t even entered the dungeon yet…” (Sakuya)

“I will predict everything that happens inside the dungeon, starting from my entrance.” (Sora)

“…What?! W-What are you…?” (Sakuya)

My divination accuracy is quite high. Even during the Heian period, I hit nearly 100% accuracy.

However, it’s essential to narrow down the conditions, as I can’t predict every single future event.

The advantage of this technique is being able to predict the future, but there are also disadvantages.

For example, if the divination predicts the appearance of a powerful evil or yokai, the impact of this added condition makes it challenging to narrow down the future.

Anxiety can dominate people’s hearts, making them fearful which gives an opening for yokai and evil spirits to enter. That is why divination is convenient but can also be a technique that, if mishandled by the practitioner, worsens the situation.

However, when it comes to smaller events like these, it’s relatively easy to narrow down the predictions.

“I-I understand… Let’s begin…” (Sakuya)

As the stream starts, notifications start to sound.

Oh, the stream has started?

I have been waiting naked for this!3

LOL, this is gonna be fun!

It’s the person with the special-grade curse item, I have been waiting for this!

And thus, unknowingly, Sora sets off to create a new legend… a legend yet unknown to him.

Sora places his hands on the ground and quietly whispers…

Divination” (Sora)

TL notes:

Thanks for reading!

Remember when Sakuya said that just because she is the daughter of an IT company, it does not mean that she can do anything? No wonder Sora thinks that she knows everything, this girl is a literal genius.

Also looks like Sora is more lonely than he seems. I mean that’s kinda understandable considering his circumstances.

Btw rmb when I said ratings on kakuyomu was at like 2000 just 4 chapters ago? Well now it jumped to 5,500 lol. This is faster than CFD at its prime.


  1. Magic card probably refers to credit card or something
  2. Divination refers to fortune-telling. From now on, I will use divination and won’t put footnotes.
  3. I swear that this is the translation, is this some streaming joke I don’t get? I am sure as hell not google searching that. Raw is “全裸待機してました”.

probably some meme. I know taiki is common in vtuber streams, like you’re waiting patiently for the stream to start.

Thanks for the new chapter!
