The Bears Bear a Bare Kuma – Chapter 15


Chapter 15 – Bear-san’s Rainy Day Off | Part 1

I was staying indoors today because it had been raining since morning.
I read a book about monsters to kill time.
The majority of the Monsters described in the book were those often found in games, novels, and comics.
It might be a good idea to go around the world and look for them.
I decided to go down to the first floor because my stomach was ready to have lunch.
There were a lot of customers in the dining room.
When I asked Elena about it,

「Oh, the street stalls have to close, thanks to the rain, so customers are looking for stores that can stop them from getting wet. They focus on the shops that can keep them out of the rain.」

Certainly, the street stalls were done for in that rain.
I would think that a customer wouldn’t feel like shopping in the rain and would look for a warm place to eat instead.
When you think about it, it’s natural for them to choose a store that keeps them out of the rain.

I looked around the dining room for a place to sit, but it was full.
I didn’t want to share a table with strangers, so I decided to go back, but at that moment,

「Yuna-san, excuse me but there is no seat available, so how about eating in your room?」

「Un, I don’t mind.」

「Thank you very much. The truth is, I’d like to prioritize Yuna-san, since you’re living in the Inn, but…」

「It’s okay. Then, I would like today’s special.」

「I understand. I will take it to your room immediately, so please wait a moment.」

Approximately five minutes after I returned to my room, someone knocked on the door.
That was surprisingly fast.

「Yuna-san, could you please open the door?」

When I opened the door, Elena brought in a steaming hot dish.
Since lunch was not included in the accommodations, I payed Elena after receiving the food.

「Thank you very much.」

「You have it hard, huh.」

「Yes, but it’s a good time to make a profit.」

She answered cheerfully and went back.
I gratefully ate the food that was placed on the table.
Stir-fried vegetables with meat, hot soup, and fresh bread.
I appreciated the warm dish.
I gnawed on the bread, but I already missed rice.
The bread is delicious, but, as a Japanese, I need rice.
I also want to eat ramen, but would there be something like that in this world?
I will ask Elena next time.
After finishing the meal, I thought about the schedule for the afternoon.

I looked at my status screen.

White Bear’s Hand (Non-transferable)
Black Bear’s Foot (Non-transferable)
White Bear’s Foot (Non-transferable)
Bear Suit (Non-transferable)

The number of skills has increased since the last time I checked.

Bear’s Map
It is possible to make a map of the places you have seen with the Bear’s Eyes.

When I produced the Bear’s Map, all the places where I had been, namely the places around the town, the village where the goblins appeared, the forest in the east, and the west gate, appeared.
Everything else was completely black.

It seems to be some kind of minigame.
Although it’s convenient, it’s unfortunate that only the places I’ve visited are displayed.
Well, getting a map of the world so suddenly would make it boring.

Then I looked at the map, right at the place where the Goblin King had appeared, and remembered.
I took out a sword from the Bear Box.
It was the Goblin King’s sword.
It didn’t look as sinister as it did when the Goblin King wielded it.
It had become a clean, shining, silver sword.

Goblin King’s Sword
Level: 7
Effects: Strength increase, Magical Power increase

Strength increase
Increases the strength of the user.

Magic Effect
It’s possible to enchant this sword with magic.

I think that was the reason the sword looked so ominous in the hands of the Goblin King.
When I put some of my Magical Power into the sword, it sparkled a beautiful silver.
Even if you felt depressed, you didn’t have to blacken it to that extent.

I think it will be useful in the future.
The rain won’t stop today.

When I thought about what to do for the rest of the day, I couldn’t immediately think of anything to do.
My experience of being a hikikomori was high, but it was useless if there was no internet, TV, novels, or comics.
Since there was nothing entertaining, I was unexpectedly free.
There was nothing left to do but sleep.
However, if I slept now, I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night.
In Japan, if I couldn’t sleep, I would read novels, play games, or browse the internet, but there was nothing to do in this world.
So, from now on, I decided to think about what I can do.

I decided to do some muscle training because I became a little concerned about it while fighting the Goblin King.
My upper arms were like jelly.
Thanks to the Bear, I could do push-ups a few times, dozens of times or hundreds of times and never get tired.
Won’t my arms come off if I don’t take a break? While thinking that, I took off the Bear. I’m now in underwear.
I’m definitely wearing a shirt on the top.
The bottom is still a Bear though.
I’m not wearing the underwear I bought before because they weren’t comfortable.
I think I will go to the high quality shop next time.

I tried doing push-ups while thinking that.
Yes, even doing ten of them was impossible.

Nothing has changed since my time in Japan.
I decided to give up on my jelly-like upper arms and obediently put on the Bear.
The scary thing is, I’m gradually getting used to the appearance of this bear.

    1. I hope she gets at least some power that is truly her own, in case something happens when she doesn’t wear the costume. She would be completely vulnerable and unable to do anything if someone, say, attacked her when she was bathing or something, I don’t like that possibility.

      Other than that, as long as she doesn’t end up like a certain pugilist from lv999 villager, everything is fine… Firm is also good(although I personally prefer girls to be a bit softer, muscles of steel = NO)


  1. Eeeh?! Even the sword have levels?! It could even recieve kuma enchant!
    …meatbun wonders if forks and knifes have levels.. *drools* just thinking of the possibility of owning a level 99 fork.. all those pasta, meatballs, and steak that meatbun could pick away~

    Thanks 4 the chapter!

    So the bear suit is basically a magical powered armor. I forgot, does it add to her strength or multiply it? If it’s the second, she should work out. There is not much different between 4+1000 and 5+1000, but there’s a big difference between 4×1000 and 5×1000.

    1. it multiplies her power: the stronger she gets .. the stronger the bear suit will make her when equipped so yeah she gotta workout also due to the suit options if she could get her normal stamina up she can turn the suit and get other options that normally she doesn’t use cuz shes lazy

      No the bear armor adds to her stats not multiplys, however the stats it adds is based on her level. So the higher level she is the better stats the bear armor will have.

    if she levels the sword…will it become a bear sword? …will she be able to communicate with bears!?!?! the bear rides the bare back of a bearded bear in to beartle?i meant battle…yes…

  4. She could always do the exercise, put on the white bear for a bit, take it off and repeat. It would be hard, but she’d still train far faster than a normal human and, if this were a more serious series, it would be a good idea to not be helpless without the bear outfit.


  5. Why is she so weak without the bear costume? It doesn’t make sense since she leveled up and level ups should give superhuman power… So what does the level up do if not giving power/stat raise? If it’s not changing anything what’s the point of her and other adventurers leveling up?

    For new readers I have 1 thing to say absolutely do not make yuna mad. You will get messed up much more than deborane. Know this from way later chapters. ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•͓͡•ʔ
