Idle Talk 5 - Tondemo Skill de Isekai Hourou Meshi (post Ch 60)

Idle Talk 5 -- I can SEE you, I can SEE you...

Ah, I ate too much because it was so delicious, you know. I finished off the other-world guy's offerings in just three days but I couldn't help myself, I'm like that.

Come on other-world guy, hurry up and pray to me and make your offerings again. If he's late again I'll have to consider sending him an oracle this time regardless.

It's all I can think of as I watch the world below in the scrying pool.

Mumu-, at last! The other-world guy is finally praying and making offerings.

"Wind Goddess Ninril-sama, please accept my offering as thanks for your continued protection now and in the future."

[Oh, I've been waiting! I'd have sent you an oracle if you'd been any later.]

What are you saying, other-world guy? Eating sweets will make me fat?

[I- I, I, I won't get fat, truly. G- Goddesses like me are always beautiful you know.]

Deities like me can't get fat and I'm always beautiful, that's just how I am. Naturally.

What do you mean, "I stutter"?

[B- B- Be quiet, you! Those cakes and puddings were very tasty but we've not eaten any for the last three days, I'll have you know.]

It's totally not my fault they're all gone. It's just the cakes and puddings were so delicious. The other-world guy is thinking "Eating all that in just three days you're bound to get fat, aren't you?"  He's being snarky even though I've told him I'm eternally beautiful and not scared of getting fat which totally won't happen anyway.

[Gumumumu, let's move on to more important things. What sort of sweet things are you offering me this time?]

That's right, stop distracting me. Sweets, that's what I want you to talk about.

Uh, that's not a nice thing to think about me, other-world guy.

"[What? They're only sweets, you know! You fool! Sweets aren't that great, huh?]

It seems the other-world guy has figured out I can know what he's thinking and he's calling it a violation of his 'right to privacy'.

[Hah, what 'right to privacy'? I'm a Goddess, you know. There's nothing you can keep secret from a deity like me. I can see what you do, hear what you think in your whole life from beginning to end. You might want to remember that clearly, you know. Anyway, I'm a Goddess, don't forget it. I'm all-powerful and that's why you should show me some respect, you know.]

Huh, I'm a Goddess after all, you know. I'm all-powerful.

Nu-? A- A deplorable Goddess, am I? M- Me?

[Nuuu, I am so totally not deplorable, you know!] This other-world guy is mega-!

"Well, this time I chose some Japanese sweets, that is sweets from the country I came from." he said. " Ninril-sama requested anpan and dorayaki and there's a sweet that's got a lot of 'anko', the same filling inside them."

[What'd you say? That 'anko' pastry? That subtle sweetness is so delicate, you know.] I started drooling as I remembered the taste of 'anko'.

A certain person is thinking unkind thoughts about a certain Goddess. Again.

"And as you can see, I've also prepared an offering of dorayaki." he prayed. There's dorayaki too?

[Ohh, dorayaki. Great job, you.] Time to transfer his offering to the world of the Gods... aaaand done.

[Muho-, there's a lot this time. You've done well my disciple.]

Lots and lots, oh there's so much this time... isn't it great?

[I'll eat a dorayaki straight away. Mm-mm-mm- muhaha, delicious as ever, hah!]

It's been so long since I tasted such sweetness. It's delicious, it's delicious.

This time I'll be careful and not eat too much. I swear.

But, just a single piece more... yeah, that's fine.

'Castella', it's a square cake, the top and bottom are dark and the thick middle is a yellowish sweet filling.

 Just a mouthful then, munch. Mmmm-, it's fluffy and sweet and soft and its taste is unbearable, you know- Sooo good, munch munch munch. Oh, it's all gone.

I should really stop eating now, shouldn't I? Yes, I should stop now, don't do what I did last time.

Uuuuh, but can I resist, can I...?

The figure of a woman watches from the shadows as Wind Goddess Ninril-sama wrestles with her conscience and loses to the sweetness arrayed before her.

I wondered why she was being so secretive, the hidden woman thought to herself. She shouldn't be selfish, such delicious food is meant to be shared. She hurried off to immediately inform the other Goddesses.


  1. Btw, thanks for the chapter~ =w=

  2. Thanks for the chapter!
    And it begins~

  3. thank you for the treat, well you can't keep it hidden forever

  4. Thanks for the chapter. Other Goddesses Flag has been triggered.

  5. Served her right! That gluttonous goddess..
    Thanks for the treat.

  6. MC probably shouldn't be so snarky. After all, just because deities don't conform to his mental image, doesn't mean he should hold it against them and push his values onto them. Plus, if you had endless life, you're bound to be bored of monotony and look forward to anything that brightens you up, like sweets. And if he is that annoyed at being pestered for sweets, he should advance this worlds food culture so that way they can summon the sweets by themselves (it was a rule that they cannot poof up things from worlds not under their jurisdiction?).

    1. My mental image of gods/goddesses are they are petty, whimsical and abusive so she is quite good. He should meet those type so he could appreciate her.

    2. Well, he has their favorite thing in palm of his hands so I think he got the right to call them whatever he wants, plus it's better for him to be critical than some blind believer like feru

  7. Oh Oh! MC will surely accept a lot of Blessings from the Gods from now on.

    1. He would probably say:Great, other mouths to feed.

  8. Haha! She's screwed for sure. As I remember, some of them also loves alcohol.

  9. Ahhh, it was just a matter of time, after all, especially with all the noise she makes around offering time.

    1. Perhaps at first they suspect her to have a lover as her foodgasm sounds like orgasm.

  10. .   ∧_∧
     ======== \Thanks!!

    She never seen it coming!

  11. Meatbun Delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    ...aand the the whole god world now is watching our MC tempt them with delicious cooking and only giving them weekly offering..

  12. Since he already got immunity to diseases like he wanted from the wind goddess I wonder what the other goddesses will offer him in exchange for the sweets since he is not interested in power

  13. Probably the goddes will compete to become his patron, and by the end, he will have multiple protection(great)

  14. This comment has been removed by the author.

  15. Thanks for the chapter~
    Our poor MC... It's not just the wind goddess in trouble now...

  16. I feel like I already read this chapter...was it just in a different perspective?

  17. It would funny if all the gods and goddesses realised that if he is captured and used by the governments the food tribute would stop and all sent oracles to the priests/priestesses/miko or whatever that divine punishment awaits to those who bring him harm.

    1. That's a great idea! Especially considering the state of this world and constant war, slavery, etc.

  18. Oh sheet, the secret is out!
    Thanks for the chapter Albedo-sama :3!
