ToK 62. Black Wolf’s Vice Captain

Hello this is MayonaizeShrimp

Since translating only 1 novel feels lonely, I am considering picking up another novel or two to translate so please comment below if you have a suggestion.

My prefered genre is fantasy especially Isekai settings but I’m open for any kind of novel. No harem-slice of life bullsh*t please.

Harem is okay and I like slice of life. But I wish to translate something with a plot. Not a mindless “Hero’s funny daily lives of creating a harem in another world”. I don’t mind picking up a harem slice of life novel if it has a plot.


Putting my ramblings aside, here’s c62

Nikka was in a desperate situation. Gregor’s strong defence at the front and Anzerm’s pincer attack at her back, spreading his soldiers thin and wide to prevent Nikka’s escape.

“Vice Leader! Even if it’s only you, you have to escape” One of her subordinates speaks loudly

“Idiot. We can still do it!”

Maybe if she threw her responsibility aside, she might survive. As a woman, as long she lived she might be able to do something. Someday there may be a chance to live with Volf as well.

“I’m still… a warrior”

The woman who abandoned her. No, the woman who sold her. She lived with men, flatter him, and then left him to die on the side of the road. Nikka’s mother is that kind of a woman, a parasite. Those kind of woman are all the same.

“I’d rather die than live like that”

Nikka is different. She decided to live and fight with Volf. After her only friend’s death, she chose the same path as the man she loved. You have to fight to survive. There’s no meaning if you don’t win it by yourself.

Nikka rose from the ground. Using her flexible moves, she slices her enemies. Neck, armor joint, does not matter. She flew and cut her enemies’ necks and limbs.

“Rise you idiots! We can’t give up so easily!

When you die, you can’t move forward. So you have to live
(TL: People die if they are killed -Shirou Emiya, Fate/Stay Night, 2006)

“Vice captain… Oy wake up! We can do it!”


The wolves do not get captured. The wolves are undefeatable.

Anzerm observes Nikka on the battlefield. She was trying to attack Gregor with brute force. On the other hand Gregor too was relying on his army’s brute strength. It’s foolish. Anzerm is different from them.

“Surround and shoot them with your bow! Don’t let them get escape!”

He can’t make any mistake. He had to take that wolf’s head.

Even while covered by arrow bruises, the wolves still fought hard. Nikka keep avoiding the arrows by using trees and rocks. Even so, a few arrows still managed to strike her deep in a few places. Some of her men also collapsed while some of them turned into a pin cushion.

“Nooot yeeeeeeeeeeet!”

Her roar means nothing. Stand, move, fight, kill.
Kill like a beast.

“This is troublesome. I’m going in, Anzerm!”

Gregor who couldn’t wait anymore moves into the battlefield.

“That fool. He shouldn’t move on his own!”

But it couldn’t be helped since Gregor already moves. It certainly helps to finish their enemies faster but there will be lots of casualties. It’s not a beautiful way to win and it doesn’t sit well with Anzerm.

“That stupid idiot! Are you fucking kidding me? what should i do if he got caught?”

A victory must be beautiful and perfect. Outwit the enemy with tactics, complete victory without casualty. This is Anzerm’s motto and his way fighting.

“Struggle all you want, woman! This Gregor von Tundar will be coming for you!”

Gregor swings his sword and cut a soldier right in front of Nikka.

“Huh? Did you come to die, idiot!” she swung her spear.

Gregor parried with his sword. Both side fought against each other but suddenly-

“Die!” Anzerm breaks in. Leaving his men behind, he came with burning anger. A black sword aimed at Nikka’s neck. She used her spear to parry but it broke at the hilt.

“Anzerm! Don’t you dare to take my prey!”

Ignoring Gregor who was surprised by his sudden appearance, Anzerm aims at Nikka’s neck again. This time she can’t dodge it.

(Ah… I’m going to die)

Being surrounded by Gregor and Anzerm, she saw no chance of getting out from this situation. At that moment she drew her sword.


Anzerm’s sword disappeared. Nikka’s sword strikes Anzerm’s sword with so much force that broke his balance. Gregor attacks but it was parried by Nikka.

“Fu! You bitch, are you really a woman?”

Gregor cursed while Nikka parried all his attacks. Nikka’s sword pierced the gap in Gregor’s armor and strips a part of his armor.

“I will not die. I will fight and fight and fight until I kill both of you!”

For Anzerm and Gregor, fighting 2v1 with a woman is humiliating. Especially when they can’t land a finishing blow. Even while being surrounded, Nikka’s aura is roaring fiercely. Roaring of life shining to survive longer even for another minute. A beautiful obsidian shine that shapes a woman wearing a black fur coat.

(Damn it, I should’ve killed her with arrows) Black fangs scratches Anzerm’s cheek. Only a wolf can fight equally against two elite soldiers. Their sword slashes the air and their armor was scratched by the fang.

“You biiiiiiiitch!”

Nikka’s is fighting desperately, not even have time to breath or think. For her, death is not that scary. When she decided to walk the same path as Volf, she threw away her weak self. She cut her long hair and chased Volf desperately. To fulfill the promise with a friend, to fulfill the dream that her friend couldn’t fulfill – The wolf was here.

ToK 61. Crisis


Now I realized why no one is picking this WN.
This *beep* is hard to read

The battle intensifies, but not on the upper stream. It’s not the place where the two generals collide. It’s a little down the stream where Nikka and Gregor fought.

“Yosh!” said Gregor while making a pose.

The objectives are completed nicely.

“I got your back now”

Anzerm von Kruger moves. He came to take the pawn called Nikka, vice leader of the black mercenary group, who left the defense and focused on attacking Gregor’s army.

“No fucking way!”

Nikka, who was attacking Gregor aggresively, can’t help but left dumbstruck. Her destructive power should be enough to wipe Gregor’s army but she’s stuck with attrition battle so she focused entirely on attack. This created a gap for an ambush.

“Give it up, woman! This Gregor von Tundar have fought hard. But you are a woman, a mercenary. Therefore you are not even my opponent. Hahahaha!”

Ignoring Gregor, Nikka guides her soldiers away. Nikka is not stupid enough to fight in this condition. Her only goal is now: Escape.

“Do you think you can escape?”

Before her was Anzerm, who was blocking her escape route

“Tch…” Nikka clicked her tounge while looking at Volf’s position in the center.

“Shit.. I can’t pass”

The first one to notice the change in Nikka’s battlefield was Ywain, who was fighting at the upper stream. He had been surpassed by Gilbert’s army but he’s still holding control and maintaining his dominance.


Ywain cursed his captain from afar. There’s nothing he can do from his position, which is the furthest from Nikka. Nevertheless, nothing can be done about it. If Volf lose Nikka, who supported him from every aspect, Volf will not get away easily from Ywain’s wrath.

“You dare to look away. Don’t underestimate me, Lion!”

Gilbert’s sword swung vertically. Even though the attack was avoided, a line of blood was formed on Ywain’s cheek and eyelids.

“Tch.. I don’t have time to play with you!”

The two fought each other. No one can get close to them. In one-on-one fight there’s no one can match Gilbert but Gilbert was fighting on equal terms with Ywain.

(I don’t think I will lose here but I can’t imagine myself being able to kill him. As expected from von Osvalt household)

But Ywain was impatient. The whole situation is bad. He’s stuck fighting here while Nikka was in trouble. Volf was not in situation where he can move either. Today he was supposed to push the center and fight the White Mask. He can only hope for Nikka’s survival.

Meanwhile Volf immediately sense the whole incident in the battlefield. But he was in the middle of infiltrating the fort. If he realized it before he attacked, would he change his plan and rescue Nikka? Knowing Nikka, she wouldn’t want to be rescued before Volf claims victory at the fort.

Nikka is one of the closest person to Volf. A part of his past. The only one who knows his origin and his hardship. She is, without doubt, an important person to Volf.

But the ‘Wolves’ do not get ‘captured’.  Even if Nikka is an important person to Volf, he has to prioritize the objective and claim victory. Volf hesitated. Should he follow his leader self who was the leader of “Black Wolf” and claim victory or his personal self and save Nikka?

“Maa~a whatever. I will attack and attack! Just you wait, White Mask! The Wolf will be there soon”

“Will he retreat? Hmm no… he’s getting closer and closer”

William watches Volf coming from afar by sweeping his soldiers from side to side. He didn’t show a shred of hesitation at all. Perhaps there was no a chance where Volf will go away at all. Even if Arcadia took Nikka from the game, there’s no major change in the battlefield.

“In terms of tactics, I am a bit inferior. Even my fighting capability is below him”

In many aspects, Volf was ahead from William. William have no tactic to overcome this situation.

“But still, I am going to win”

I have to remove some sentences because it sounds too weird and redundant

ToK 60. Black and White – Meeting Each Other Again

Tower of Karma chapter 60


The battlefield has reached a stalemate. Neither army makes any progress. Except for Gilberto and Ywain, who were struggling to death in upper stream, they were sick of attrition wars. Since Volf was able to maintain the dominance for the first time, the front line was secure. So it’s not a scenario that emphasis on the tactical side but it seems to push the center for the time being.
“Well then, are you going to fight” That said- As expected from “Black Wolf” truly strong and agile attacks.

It is not enough to push the center, but Volf’s army is still strong. Once you’ve got the enemy side, breaking through the arrow rain shield as an umbrella then jump into enemy team at a stretch and overrun it.
“I can not understand the intention, but… I will finish eating as it is.”
The harsh attack of the Wolf changes the color of the center.

“Tch, that guy again. I’m starting to get sick of him”

Before Nikka’s eyes were Gregor’s army. As Anzerm explained, the reinforcement made a considerable effect on the battle.

Gregor also had a small fortress was erected as per William’s manual. Nikka shouldn’t be able to capture it even if she take the long approach. This attrition battle is clearly in favor for Gregor, it doesn’t sit well with Nikka.
“Daaaaaaa! Uzeeee! Come out quickly you damn coward!”

Gregor did not move at Nika’s cry.

(This is nice) Gregor had experienced it himself. William’s knowledge gained from many books and worth thousands.. no.. millions experiences. The effect surprisingly changed the Arcadia army’s effectiveness on this battlefield. (I don’t think I can lose if I do it well)

If their armies clash with each other head on, it will result in death match. Their skill are almost equal and death will be inevitable. The manner Gregor fights is knightish and straight forward but now, Gregor is experiencing the benefit of strategy. “Now that we’re fighting again, I don’t think I will lose.”

Gregor’s army has the high ground. Even if the army led by Nikka can hold down better on the plain, the higher ground is creating an absolutely favorable condition. There is no defeat on this battlefield. At least Gregor did not feel like losing.

“Besides, today is … it’s going to be interesting.”

The fortress that appeared in Volf’s eyes clearly had different atmosphere. High quality trees are also used in some places. It didn’t look like built overnight, but it was probably built in anticipation of being pushed here. To predict this far, only Volf knows such a man.

“Ossha! Do not forget to re-partition it, white mask!”

White mask, William Riuvius, overlooks Volf from above the fortress. Volf can see the color under his mask. (I wonder if his physical condition is fully healed). The complexion is well, and no trauma is found.

“I’ll play with you if you can reach here”

“That brat!”

He fell to the provocation but- To build such a splendid fortress in such a short time. So he possessed such human resources. This is wonderful. But still, Volf does not doubt his superiority. He can break through and get inside.

“I will crush it!”

Utilizing speed, the wolf rides the battlefield. Even though the cavalry was sealed, the fierceness of the wolves did not waver.

“Ho.. Do it then”

Using shield to defend from rain of arrows, Volf’s army advances. However, it is admirable to be able to move around so fast in that state and making attack variations. Not that arrows can give the best performance in mountain warfare anyway. That is why there is a gap to get in there.


There’s nothing to fear from rain of arrows if you know it’s path. There are many obstacles from the top to bottom of the mountain. Even the bow, which is the best weapon in plains, is useless after striking one forest leaf. Volf did not miss the chance.


It was quick. Volf cuts the distance at unbelievable speed like there is no problem with the rain of arrows.

As he jumps – “Let’s go for round two, White Mask!”

Wolf’s twin sword slashed two necks in a blink of an eye. At that moment, Volf finally infiltrate into the fortress. Fast and strong. William, who is in the fort, can see the fight. Wolf’s speed was still troublesome. Not just his speed as individual, but his speed as a group.

“Umu.. You’re no match to me”

William also prepares to fight. Black and White. This time they fight once again.
