Miniature Garden Chemister – Chapter 23

After I returned to my room I started to tremble with excitement at the thought of what we will be doing in town.

Ikuru said “Hinami-sama can do anything you like. I am fine with anything”.

Even though I am nineteen years old, it seems like I have been depending in Ikuru too much. He seems much more mature than me.

“But, aren’t I the store manager??”

It’s impossible!

It’s going to be a store where the potions I made are arranged cutely. It’s also a good thing that the bottles in which the potions are contained are cute in appearance.

After that, have some space in the shop to have tea etc! Serve it with cake bought from a famous coffee shop in town. It will be a place where you can sit down and talk with tea.

Ah, my dream is expanding!

“Oh! I also need to decide the name of the shop!”

Umm… I see. A cute name would be good. How about a name of a dessert? Oh I know we should use “Mashumaro”!

(TN: Mashumaro is marshmallow)

Oh, but there are no marshmallows in this world… wouldn’t it be too weird?

Then what would be good? Because we are selling potions maybe pharmacist shop, potion coffee shop, pharmacy… none of the names are cute at all!

(TN: 喫茶店ポーション – is potion coffee shop which sounds super weird but that’s what it translates to)

Let’s ask God tonight and Ikuru tomorrow about it.


I did a lot of new things today!

The magic mangrove that was bought with points is super amazing! When I ate the princess fruit it was extremely tasty.

The princess protection potion tasted just like carbonated water, but when you put in the fruit, it tasted very delicious. Drinking it made me feel very happy.

I want God to eat it too.

Then, when the door of the miniature garden is installed, I would like to open up a shop in town. If I think about it… it’s super convenient, isn’t it?

While saving money, I will try hard to think about the future!

Because of that, I would like to consult with God. I have not decided on a name for the store yet. Although, I just started thinking about it today. If you have any recommendations for names please tell me. I think that I have no naming sense…

I’m still a little scared but… I will try to raise my level when I’m calmer.

I don’t think that I can go to where the goddess lives if I’m only level one.

I will do my best!

But since I have not saved up enough points, there’s still a lot of time until then.



I close the exchange diary and lie down on the bed. We have been using the exchange diary for about two years already.

A long but short two years.

I wonder if I was useful to God at all during these two years? After all, it seems like a dream that I can be useful to God.

I can feel the drowsiness attacking me since I just took a bath awhile ago. My body is super warm which is making super drowsy.

That reminds me… I wonder if I should extend the bathroom if Ikuru likes it, I thought as I fell asleep.

*Cheep Cheep *

As always the birds wake me up in the morning. I’m still a little sleepy, but I’ll worry Ikuru if I don’t get up.

I take one big yawn as I do a big stretch. Let’s do our best today also.

As I remove clothes from the drawers, I noticed new clothes in there also. It seems like God has added some more.

“This is… shorts with adorable cat pattern parka! This is the first time I’ve worn clothes like this that are easy to move in!”

I put on my clothes right away. I’m wearing a t-shirt under my parka and the socks that I’m wearing also have the same pattern as the parka.

The clothes are cute and easy to move in… it’s indeed from God. Even though there are no frills it’s still a super cute design!

“Well, I should check the diary.”

NEW! [Hina adventure set] 500


Good morning, Hina.

Thank you for writing every day. But please don’t overwork yourself to point of getting sick okay?

There’s a lot of tasty fruit in including the princess fruit.

It’s different than Japan because the fruit tastes much more delicious raw than cooked. Japan has much more developed seasonings and cooking methods.

Please try to find something delicious.

And a store is it?

The store will become popular fast because of Hina’s potions. I also want to go buy some.

The name of the store… rather than have me decide shouldn’t Hina decide it? It would be better if you came up with it instead. You should keep thinking about it until you find the perfect name. When you find the name, you will say this is it!

The store will definitely be cute since it is Hina’s store, do your best.

Also, I think that Mashumaro is a cute name?

Oh, that’s right.

I added an adventure set to the exchange list of points.

If you plan on going leveling take it with you. For sure there is something that will be useful.


Adventure set!

Furthermore, it’s exclusively for me. Well, I’m not going to go leveling up just yet so I’ll wait to exchange it.

But, thank you, God!

I’m very happy with the thoughtfulness of God.

“Okay, I will do my best today too!”

I walk down the stairs into the living room. Then I smell something delicious in the air, it seems like Ikuru prepared breakfast.

“But Ikuru isn’t here…”

Is it the garden?

“Hmm, you’re not in the garden?”

Where are you?

Ikuru’s breakfast is still uneaten so he hasn’t eaten yet. I think he went out into the forest… but that’s hard to say.

Then, I noticed some noises coming from the basement. Is Ikuru in the basement?


As I went down the stairs calling out his name, I heard Ikuru say “what?”.

Why are you in the basement?

“What are you doing?”

“What am I doing? I’m organizing.”

Ikuru is rearranging the basement that is filled with potions everywhere you look. It’s not an exaggeration to say that it was extremely disorganized but when I see how Ikuru organized it, it gives off a refreshing feeling.

The potions were divided into types and seasonings were put together.

“I couldn’t put anything else in here but there’s actually a lot of space in here!”

“If you put your items away carefully, you should have this much space.”

“Sorry, thanks!”

About one-third of the basement is left after reorganization. It’s only recovery potions, but if there are thousands of them even a large basement will get filled.

Ikuru had actually managed to make some space, he’s amazing! If I did it… I would get too frustrated.

“If you do not organize it, when you try to sell them it will be troublesome. For now, shall we have breakfast?”

“Yes, let’s.”

I feel bad because all I’m doing is deciding the name of the store while Ikuru is being much more productive than me.

Oh! I should name the store “Ikuru’s Shop”! Well no, nevermind he would be furious with that name.

“Now what is it?”

“Hmm, I was thinking of a name for the store.”

“Well, it’s certainly a necessary thing.”

“Do you have any good names?”

I have to admit defeat on names because I’m terrible with them. Ikuru seemed to be thinking about it, and I heard a small “umm…” from him.

As I am drinking soup, I think about the names I came up with and regret thinking them up.

“By the way what did Hinami come up with?”

“… Ikuru’s store, pharmacy, mashumaro things like that.”


Well, Ikuru made an amazed face while being expressionless.

“How about using Hinami’s name and naming it ‘Hinami’s miniature garden’?”

Huh? Did you just pretend to not hear me? I told Ikuru all of my name suggestions and he didn’t say anything. Well… I guess it’s good because I know that I have no naming sense.

“It’s cute, but it’s embarrassing to use my name…”

“So? It’s quite common for merchants to use their own names as the store name.”


Now that he says that, even in Japan people would name their company and stores with their own names. Is everyone’s self-assertiveness strong? If one does not have strong self-assertiveness they cannot survive in the business world where it’s survival of the fittest right?

But to use one’s name?

Or is it because I’m small? But if we are going to use miniature garden it should be in English. If I use my name this way though it makes it seem like I’m miniature size!

“Does that mean that I’m small?”

“Yes, that’s exactly right.”


(TN: The sounds that she makes when she’s mad)

“Isn’t being small and cute a good thing?”



“I thought that it would give off a hint that it’s a cute store.”

“Oh, that’s right!”

“Then it’s decided.”


I thought he was telling me that I was cute but he was talking about the store name!

I caught up in the moment. It was my misunderstanding… how embarrassing.

I’m excited that the name has been decided. Well, the name gives off a cute atmosphere so it’s ok!

Okay, Hinami’s Miniature Garden it is!

Well then.

Ikuru is in the forest looking for the Kukuri tree, and I am of course house-sitting.

In the first place, we need the door of the miniature garden to open up the store. But for that to happen, I need to have 25,000 points.

“Let’s play today Maro!”


Maro will jump up and down on the princess tree so that the fruits and flowers drop down. I will then cast << Angel’s Voice (Sanctuary) >> to make the princess protection medicine. Each potion gives me 5 points, so I should be able to make a lot of points.

I can earn more points at once this way.

Hehe, doing this makes me feel more adult-like.

“<< Angel’s Voice (Sanctuary) >>”


“<< Angel’s Voice (Sanctuary) >>”


“<< Angel’s Voice (Sanctuary) >>”


“<< Angel’s Voice (Sanctuary) >>”



(TN Panting SFX)


“As expected, I got tired.”


I wonder if Maro has unlimited energy?

I ran out of power after using << Angel’s Voice (Sanctuary) >> for the nth time. It seems like there is no problem using the skill itself but, carrying the bottles to basement each time is the problem!

“Let’s take a small break Maro ~.”


I plop down on the grass, and it felt like it caught me. Maro also lies down on the grass right next to me, he looks very happy.

The wind gently blows and strokes both me and Maro. My tired body feels completely healed by that wind. I was pretty sweaty so the wind feels super comfortable!


“What’s wrong Maro?”



Oh is he using magic!?

Maro feels different than he usually does, it seems that he’s excited.

But this feels different from the last time he used magic. Maro was not this excited the last time he used magic.

Then… what’s making Maro so excited?

“Oh, up…?”


It looks like Maro got super excited by looking up at the sky. I should look around more, but I have no time right now.



When I look up at the sky, I see a dragon…! I also hear a nostalgic voice.

Although when I look up, I only see a dragon, but for sure I heard a voice. Because that voice is the first voice I heard in this world.

“Shia – chan!!”

I stand up and call out her name loudly.
