2. No Fatigue

Previous | TOC | Next


And thus I, Kagi Tomonori, reincarnated in another world called Marquekt.

Thanks to having an explanation beforehand, I wasn’t very surprised when I woke up to find myself surrounded by unfamiliar adults and that my body wouldn’t move very well. When I looked at my arm, I saw that the arrangement? resulted in me becoming an infant.
At most, my astonishment was revised to ‘Oh, so I really reincarnated!’

However, I was surprised by another matter.

It had to do with the [No Fatigue] skill I received from the goddess.

In this world, the first thing I realised was that the adults in the vicinity were my parents and after drinking from my mother’s breasts, the day came to an end.

My mother (a woman who was still around twenty years of age, judging from the senses of my previous world) tried to rock me to sleep but――I didn’t fall asleep at all.

In the beginning I briefly thought it was because I was nocturnal in my previous world, but my current body was a newborn infant.

Despite this, I wasn’t the least drowsy.

I pretended to fall asleep before my mother when she was rocking me at least, but not a hint of drowsiness came, while the moon outside rose high into the sky.
While wonder what on earth it was, I vacantly gazed at the moon (it was dark so I couldn’t see anything else well enough), when characters suddenly floated in my mind.

《Luranius (ルラヌス): the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt》

“Hogya-!?”

(Woah!?) was what I intended to say, but my vocal cords were still undeveloped so it turned into babble.

Flustered, I fell back onto the bed and look at my sleeping mother but my mother was asleep with her mouth partly open and seemed to be drooling while making a somewhat happy-looking face.
Being both a parent of mine, and a married woman, she had an unimaginable charm.

Calming down at her face, I calmly reassess the phenomenon from just now.

……Well, I didn’t need to think about it.
It was probably an ability from the so-called [Appraisal] system.
In my previous life, I often read webnovels to pass the time on my commute to work.

I wasn’t tired anyway, so I try out the [Appraisal?] I had acquired.

《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt》
《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt》
《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt》
《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt》
《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt》

From what I can tell, I spent around two hours on this foolish operation.

《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt. Routinely faces Marquekt with the same side.》

It increased!!!

The information wasn’t that helpful but the entry grew with no prior notice.

“Fu..hua..fuee..fhuaa……”

(Th-then if I continue this……)

Due to having an infant’s body, every single action was slovenly, but I realised that this was a good opportunity.

And then,

《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt. Routinely faces Marquekt with the same side.》《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt. Routinely faces Marquekt with the same side.》《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt. Routinely faces Marquekt with the same side.》《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt. Routinely faces Marquekt with the same side.》《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt. Routinely faces Marquekt with the same side.》《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt. Routinely faces Marquekt with the same side.》

I continued to repeatedly use [Appraisal?] with increasing vigour.

And then, when the moon was disappearing by the window,

《Luranius: the moon orbiting the planet Marquekt. Routinely faces Marquekt with the same side. Orbital period is 24 days.》

“Fuoh!” (Ooh!)

The information increased once again.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

After the moon was hidden beyond the window, I was unable to use [Appraisal?] because the room was too dark.

Moreover, I didn’t get tired no matter what.

While I was in anguish, the sky brightened.

If this was my old world, I would be starting to think there was something wrong with me, but regardless of the surging [Appraisal?] rush and insomnia, I was not excited or sleepy and just maintained a very normal condition.

I just had plenty of time to think, so I was able to come up with a realistic hypothesis regarding this situation.

Bluntly speaking, the hypothesis was as thus.

――Isn’t this because of a skill?

The skill that I received from the goddess was called [No Fatigue].

In short, it means I won’t get tired.
I won’t tire, nor will I get drowsy.
And my physical condition (probably) won’t deteriorate either.

It’s still the first day so it’s possible that I might feel sleepy at some point, but there are no signs of drowsiness at present.

Not getting sleepy was obvious, but the fact that I don’t feel worn out after the barrage from [Appraisal?] after so many hours, or even lose interest, was also abnormal.
Even in my past life, I would forget the time when practicing combos for a fighting game, but there’s no way I wouldn’t get worn out after continuing for so many hours without rest.
I dare say, this ‘won’t tire’, ‘won’t get tired of’ result is probably part of this skill’s effects as well.

To sum it all up, the [No Fatigue] skill’s effects were: ‘not tiring’, ‘not getting tired of’, and ‘not feeling tired’.
It’s only just a hypothesis, but I think I can consider it as that.

Now then, how do I view this skill?

I suppose there are also people who would think, ‘is that all?’

Indeed, compared to easily understood skills such as having an increased learning speed for martial arts or magic, or being able to appraise everything in society, or having a radar-like, mental map depicting the movements of people in a fixed range, this [No Fatigue] skill was…… how should I put it, rather ‘subdued’.

But if it think very carefully, there might be huge potential sleeping behind this skill.

I’d like to think so.

Take sports for example.

Even a professional athlete, no, all the more for a professional athlete, they must condition themselves and get plenty of rest when they are tired.
And when training the basics, the repetitive practice may steadily wear out their spirit. Fundamentally, even weight training and stretching are repetitive exercises filled with pain.

But with this [No Fatigue], they ‘won’t tire’ so rest is unnecessary, they ‘won’t tire of’ it so they can steadily continue basic training all day long, and they ‘won’t feel tired’ so they can designate 24 hours each day as practice time in its entirety.

Or perhaps for fighting games.

I could give many examples, but combo practice is a given. For instance, practicing an anti-air attack against opponents who flew, or practicing the transition for a two-sided or mid-low guard, or practicing an ultra-hit combo. It’s exceedingly straightforward but if it is possible then one can seriously continue practicing as much as they like, for as long as time allows.

Certainly, the fact that great effort is needed doesn’t change, but for that endeavour to be easily done―― no, it probably won’t be at that level.
It’s possible to become a practically superhuman practice machine.

There might also be people asking ‘You want to be like that?’, but I hoped that this delusion of expansive potential wouldn’t cease and that this abnormality of mine, who treated the discipline-like repetitive practice as a solace in my daily life, would be such a wonderful ability.

“Fuefuabi fuama.. Waiaho~!” (Goddess-sama, thank you!)

I shout out from the bottom of my heart――though it was in a baby voice.

  1. Thank you! This has some nice potential.
    No Fatigue… I’m imagining insane training montages already! But for the first year it might only be Appraisal getting trained…

    1. Really? I wouldn’t…cause that would mean I would be forever torturing myself pressing the ‘F5’ key while I wait for the next update xD

  3. What?! This skillis more like a curse. I mean I acknowledge all the upsides of what he says. But no sleep? That is way too big of a price.

  4. the name Luranus /Ruranusu/ seems to be a play on the word Lunar but looks quite bad because of…yeah that 4 letters. Luranius is a bit far but it removes the awkwardness of those 4 letters. Rurance/Lurance would be quite good too (something like a play on LU-nar Radi-ANCE).

    It sounds really stupid that he didn’t noticed at once that it’s because of the skill when he mentioned it just few line ago..

  6. So, I’m already confused. If the MC has no fatigue that means his body will never get tired or worn down. However the very act of working out to get stronger requires you wear down your body so that it can repair and rebuild it self. If he can never wear his body down doesn’t that mean he can never get stronger?
