Only I can Return After the Class Transfer Translation

54. Belt

“Is that a tradition that your kind has or something?!”

You sure are carefree!

I prompt it to stand up, but it blanks… and collapses forward with a smile on its face. With its thumb held high, it disperses into particles of light.

The audience of Baby Blue Punching Bears breaks out in cheers.

At the same time my gloves light up and begin to change.

Baby Blue Punching Bear Punching Gloves
Effect: Dynamic Vision Increase; Wind Punch; Bear Claw; Earth Crash; Wild Sense
Instant Expansion Ability: Kangaroo Step; Boxer

My gloves were significantly strengthened, but I don‘t need them. I‘ve already decided to use the metal turtle sword Meguru-san left behind. That is when that I noticed a medal roll next to my feet.

It’s quite big this time. Wait, this medal… It’s a belt!

Baby Blue Punching Bear King’s Medal
Effect: King’s Protection; Glove Strengthening;
Enabled: 1 VS 1

It looks like it can be used as a type of defensive equipment… Although, I’m not sure how I’d use it. There’s no way I’ll wear something like this around my waist!

With the match over, the Baby Blue Punching Bears disperse.
The gloveless Baby Blue Punching Bear who assisted me in my corner waves to me.


Even though I‘m in tatters, I unintentionally groan out and collapse.
Upon seeing that, the gloveless Baby Blue Punching Bear leaves the corner and supports me.

“T-Thank you.”

Treatment after the match…probably won‘t happen. I’ll just transfer some of the ointment I got from Hagisawa.

I then notice the Baby Blue Punching Bear looking at my gloves.

…Does it want them?
Thinking about it, it’s because of these gloves and those medals that I keep getting dragged into these fights.
They keep herds of mamono from targeting me if I win, but in turn, they‘re also weapons I don‘t need with the ability of drawing those mamono to me in the first place. I’ve already decided that I’ll use the metal turtle sword after all.

With all of these considerations, a deal comes to my mind even though I don‘t understand the lanauge.  I turn to the guy who healed my wounds during the intervals by licking them…

“Do you want these?”

The Baby Blue Punching Bear nods.

Looks like this species really loves gloves.

“This is a unique equipment, you know? Anyone besides me can’t… actually, you might be able to wear them.”

I don’t quite get the requirements for using them, but it might work if it‘s by a member of the same species?

The gloveless Baby Blue Punching Bear cries out his desire for them a number of times.

Well, even if they can‘t be worn, we can still make an agreement?

“In that case, let’s make a deal. I’ll give them to you in return for you healing me, how about it?”

The gloveless Baby Blue Punching Bear nods once again.

Does he actually understand me?

I hand the gloves over to the Baby Blue Punching Bear. They are tried on the moment they are are recieved. The gloves grow in size for a perfect fit.


With a crackle, the Baby Blue Punching Bear’s fur stands on end… and begins to change color.


Taming Successful!

An icon with those words appear out of nowhere within my field of view. Following them, the name Punching Bear gradually appears as well.

◇ Punching Bear Lv 15
Ability: Boxer
Unique Ability: Assist; Insect Killer

Its ability is Boxer… Well, I guess that makes sense. That is his species after all. There’s also an assist ability. Could it be a combination ability? I‘m not sure.
Insect Killer looks like a straight forward way for taking out insects. This is a bear after all.
He should be pretty strong against insects.
Still what in the world is this taming thing?

Speaking of status, Punching Bear‘s are slightly weaker than mine.
I then hand over the medal and he wraps it around his waist.

Whoa… It’s way more effective than when I wear it.

Punching Bear’s status far exceed mine by putting on the gloves… In addition, doing that also came with a number of abilities.


Punching Bear proceeds to lick my wounds as I sit down on the ground.

What I felt during the intervals seems to have been genuine. My wounds gradually heal.
After 5 minutes pass, the medicine I transfered finally appears and I can finish treating myself.

I look at the bear’s status. Appeared, healing my wounds with licking consumes magic power.

Once I‘m somehow able to walk again, I give Punching Bear my gratitude.

Punching Bear roars as if to say, You’re welcome!

“Well then, as per our deal, those gloves are yours. Later.”
I then walk away but… Punching Bear tags along.

“What’s wrong?”

Why are you tilting your head like that? Your herd is going to leave you behind if you don’t hurry.

“No, it’s true that I asked you to heal me but…”
“Gau gau?”

I recall the word, “taming,“ that appeared earlier. Seeing how this world is similar to a game, there is a good chance its meaning is literal.

“Could it be… Does taming imply you’ve become my follower and will continue to follow me?”

Punching Bear nods with all his might.
In other words, I’ve obtaining a mamono companion?

I didn’t realize unique equipment had such an effect.
…Come to think of it, back when I fought the Kangaroo, one of them didn’t have gloves either… I wonder if I‘d have been able to tame it as well if I had given it my gloves?
Good grief… How am I gonna explain this to Shigenobu and the others?
No wait, first thing‘s first.

I need to hurry up and find them!

With that in mind, I use remote viewing to check whether they‘ve returned or not.


As I do, I discover that Hagisawa and the others are back at the camp.

“Thank god… I’ll be able to meet up with them if I head back right now!”

Do they remember who I am now that I‘m back in this world? Except… They seem to be strangely conscious of their surroundings, and there are far fewer people than before. I better hurry there as fast as possible.

“I’ll use transportation right now to… Wait, do you understand what that means?”
“Transportation is an ability that only allows me to teleport myself. I‘m afraid I can’t take you with me. Do you understand? I apologize for taming you like that, but… ”

Why is it that the creatures of this speicies look at me with chihuahua eyes?! That boss who nailed me is one thing, but getting it from this guy who healed me is troubling.

The bear, lost over how to react, claps his hands as an idea comes to mind.

“Gau gau.”

Smoke soon appears with a pofun… he somehow transforms into a pair of gloves.

W-What in the world?!


I slowly pick up the gloves. There is a faint warmth to them. I can also check their status. They had gone back to being treated like equipment.

This… should I think of him having disappeared after turning into light? Or that he took the form of gloves… Is this really going to be okay I wonder? I’m not sure if I can treat Punching Bear as equipment for transporting, but it’s worth a shot.

“I got it. I’ll give it a shot, but don’t hold it against me if it doesn’t work, okay?”

The gloves do something like vibrate.

Just in case, I marked the area with my remote viewing and use transportation to go to Hagisawa and the others.

The view in front of me changes and I confirm that the gloves are still in my hands.

So I’ll be able to transport Punching Bear as gloves?

“I finally found you! Where in the world have you been?!”
“Hanebashi! You… You’re covered in wounds aren’t ya! What the hell did you do!?”

Hagisawa rushes over to me and asks.

“You don’t need to worry about me, I’m fine. What happened here?”
“Suddenly, we were attacked by a horde of mamono led by a powerful mamono. We were able to fend them off while defending those who couldn’t fight, but we decided that staying here was too risky.”
“What?! Is everyone okay?! No one died, right?!”

Well, I guess them returning means that they defeated them…
Hagisawa nods at my question.
Thank god…

“Everything‘s alright, calm down… Like I was saying, after some time had passed, we remembered you, Hanebashi. We thought you were with us, so it took us a while to realize you weren’t. Forgetting a friend like that was a horrible feeling…”
