Hachinan tte, Sore wa Nai Deshou!

Volume 2 cover picture of Kakei Senkou wo Kakageyo!

Ichinomiya Shingo, a young 25 years old, single, company worker, while thinking of tomorrow’s busy working day goes to sleep. However the moment he woke up, it was a room unknown to him.

He then learned that he was inside a 6 years-old boy and had taken over his mind.

Furthermore he learned a lot from the memories of said boy: he was born as the youngest child (8th son and 10th child) of a poor noble family living in the back country. Having no administrative skill, he couldn’t do anything to manage the vast land his family has.

Fortunately, he was blessed with a very rare talent, talent of magic. Unfortunately, while his talent could bring prosperity to his family, in his situation it only brought disaster.

Yes, this is the story of the boy, Wendelin von Benno Baumeister, opening his own path in a harsh world.

Some of the early chapters have been moved to this blog in their entirety. Reason for that is the easier navigation while reading and the issue of linking to inactive blogs. By no rights I claim ownership of those chapters, neither did I change or edit anything within them.


  1. Thanks for the transaltion, and one qüestion, Are the money conversion in cent of the euro coin sistem, or is some other value?

    And I don’t know how is in the original version but the religion in the novel should be chalcedonian insteat of ortodox catolic, if its really a mix of the christeom brachs catolic and ortodox.


    1. Well, as for the money conversion I checked the raw when I added it to the Glossary and it was “Cent” without any explanation whether US or European or such, so I guess you a re free to choose for now? ^^
      As for the faith I just followed what the author wrote in the raw, I am not too knowledgeable on different faiths and their branches but I don’t see any reason to change it either. I try to avoid interpreting the meaning of things as much as possible, so if the author says it is like the orthodox catholic church, then so be it. 🙂


      1. Well if the author says that, so be it, and for me is much better count in euros, so i will think in cent/euros.

        PD: Thanks for the fast answer 🙂


  2. I don’t even read hachinan, and that 80 EUR bonus chapter thing horrifies me. :V

    That’s $114CAD for me after conversions >.<


    1. If you don’t read it, why would you care then? :O
      In the first place no one tells you to donate the entire amount yourself.

      The amount itself is calculated by the length of the chapters/interludes in the raws. If you don’t agree with it, you surely won’t be forced to donate.
      Extra chapters mean to me translating stuff after coming home from working for 12 hours, thus I won’t complain if people don’t want the extra chapters/interludes either. 🙂


  3. expecting one volume or some chapter “interlude” for gaiden of wendellin’s sensei = alfred reinford
    from his youth till his death and the fated encounter with young wendellin


  4. Thanks ^^
    PS: The “Next chapter” link of chapter 18 sends at chapter 19 skipping interludio 1 & 2.


  5. I really liked the beginning of the series.. but somehow my hype was gone with the last chapters :/ I’ll try again after sometime. I wonder if it did the same to anyone else…?


    1. I’m not planning to.. though the next chapter has been delayed a bit due to anniversary, work, RL. Well, in summary, don’t worry. 🙂
