I bought a girl – Chapter 5

Chronon: So I went a little overboard and translated 4 chapters of this. Mainly because It’s a bank holiday. Also, the story is just like I thought it was.

The little girl was sold by her parents. So he’s going to adopt her (basically)

I can’t actually move from my bed due to some sort of back injury, which makes it difficult to move or even breathe fully inwards. So I had a lot of free time.



The sunlight was shining through the gaps in the curtains, signifying morning.
It’s not every morning that I feel as good as this.
I raise my body, ready to prepare breakfast…eh?
My body won’t move.
Could this possibly be sleep paralysis?


There was something moving restlessly next to me.
Now that I mention it, I had forgotten I was living with Ruri.
I let Ruri use the bed, whilst I laid out a futon. She seems to have wandered over to me at some point.
I sneak out of the futon so as not to wake Ruri up and begin making breakfast.
I have been living alone for three years.
When I started living alone, I had no idea how to cook. However, after I became a working member of society, I began to cook for myself. I can cook adequately to some degree.
Today’s breakfast is an omelette, with sausage and bread. I don’t know what Ruri likes or dislikes, but this should be ok.
Just as I had finished, Ruri, who was still wearing yesterdays clothes, got up.

「Good morning」

Ruri stood in place whilst lowering her head.

「Well, please put a cushion down and sit at the table」

When I said so, Ruri nodded and sat down.
Right, even when she was crying yesterday, she didn’t speak.
In the beginning, I didn’t think this child could speak at all. However, during the night she kept mumbling 『rabbit…..rabbit….』in her sleep. I won’t try and force her, she probably isn’t ready to open her heart yet.
I lined up the breakfast on the table.
Then, I put my hands together.


Ruri puts her hands together as well, seeing me.
Why was parent mimicry done so suddenly? (TLN: Yeah it’s confusing)
Whilst I think this, Ruri begins to eat.
…..well, it’s only the first day.
I begin to eat my breakfast as well.

「Is it good?」

「It’s good」

Ruri begins to mumble as she eats.
Speaking of which, she fell asleep whilst crying yesterday.
No wonder she’s so hungry.
She begins to eat the bread without adding jam.


When I call her name, she immediately puts the bread back.
I wish she didn’t do it so naturally. (TLN: Implying that she was often forced to put her food back)
I took the bread into my hands.
Ruri shows a sad expression for a moment, but it was only for a moment.
I began to get angry at the environment she was brought up in.
I applied the jam to the bread, then returned it to her dish.
Ruri looks at me after looking at the bread.

「Doesn’t it taste better with jam?」

After saying so, Ruri began to open her little mouth.

「….thank you very much」

She said that at a volume that was difficult to hear.
I began to think『What’s with this child!? So cute!!』, but I didn’t say anything.
I was happy that Ruri finally spoke.
I held back the feelings of wanting to hug her and ate my omelette. I had placed way too much tomato ketchup on it.
After finishing breakfast. I cleaned my teeth along with Ruri. Ruri was using a toothbrush I bought from the convenience store yesterday.
Whilst cleaning my teeth, I looked over at Ruri. She was still trying to polish her teeth with the large toothbrush.
Somehow it’s cute…
Wait!! I’m a pure adult!! This is parental love, not a lolita complex!! They’re both different, absolutely!!
I continued to brush my teeth with an innocent expression.
I looked at the clothes Ruri was wearing the mirror.
Trainers and black jeans.
Those clothes are strange for a girl.
The first thing I thought when I saw her, was that this child needs prettier clothes.
Well….cute clothes.


She faces me with toothpaste still around her mouth.
I began to speak whilst wiping her mouth with a towel.

「Shall we buy clothes today?」

      • I don’t know what Otogi no Ori is about but the female lead is cute. The Webmanga …is difficult to read on a phone. As for Koi wa mama naranai…About a young man and a milf in a relationship… I think. The the letterd are big enough for me to read but I can only read hira and kana plus some basic Kanji. I was wondering if you’d perhaps join me in translating chapter one of both manga. Mostly because I’m bored. I’m s fantastic editor btw.


  1. Hmmmm. I’m sorry, but I’m not really liking this story. The MC is an even weaker existence than most other MCs (which is saying a LOT), and the scenario is a little too close to Usagi Drop, where the main character actually stood up, took charge, and declared to a bunch of squabbling middle aged relatives that he would be taking care of the little girl in question himself. A real Hero and Determination moment. This MC was just led around by the nose by various people to get to this point.

    In fact, the MC is so weak, that that is the only defining feature I can think of. And I can’t even see him taking the chance to buy a Lotto Ticket in the first place. It’s like the author is FORCING all the events to get to the plot point he desires, which is just bad writing. Even if there is adorableness around the bend, I don’t want to see it with this MC and this Author. What clinched my dislike was the liberal use of terms like “It’s like a Manga event.” That is the literary equivalent of turning towards the camera and winking to the home audience.

    I just don’t like this writer or the MC, and by extension, I don’t like the story. I’m sorry if I have offended anyone who enjoys it, but I find myself not wanting to read another word of this series.


    • Later on we might find out why he is like that. Remember money can change the people around u, so maybe he was different before? The story is way to early to make a decision on the mc.


      • We were already told that the MC has not told anyone but his grandfather about his lotto winnings. And the slave merchant spoke about how the grandfather talked about how kind and sensitive his grandson is. MC is Milquetoast through and through, and while there is nothing wrong with kind protagonists, I don’t like people who are so wussy in personality that they get peer pressured into using 80% of their winnings like this guy did.

        I just don’t like people like this MC. No god damn backbone, and he’s a damn moron for not catching on that the slave merchant spoke about knowing his grandfather well enough to have heard stories about the guy’s grandson!!!! And it’s not a problem with the setting. I enjoyed Usagi Drop, which had a very similar plot, but was actually written well, presented well, developed well, and had a main character that was not shamed into blowing most of his money on-!

        You know what, no, I’m done venting. Bad writing is bad. That’s my thesis statement, so disagree with me to your heart’s content.


    • the story plot has actual facts you know? Modern day slaveries exist and many women do get kidnapped or sold by their parents as sex slave. Its not manga event.


      • I am not being critical of the socioeconomic situation being presented, nor the “realism” of the slavery in modern day society being presented. I’m saying the author is doing a piss poor job with his main character, and is a hack for railroading the plot, and that I’d rather scrub myself clean with Ajax than read another chapter of this title.

        So rest assured, I’m not being dismissive of the wrongdoings of human trafficking. I’m just saying that this story doesn’t do the issue justice.

  3. Saw the tags at NU… Are those 2 particular tags true ?

    It is a super vanilla events happening around the MC and the girl… I hope it’s not too dark later in the future chapters… else, my blood would be confused and die by the conflicting events.

  4. Although I don’t want to spoil, but in the end, they lived happily as a father and a daughter.
    This series has two Parts.
    Part 1 is this: 女の子、買いました
    And Part 2 (which is completed, too): 女の子、娘にしました
    Anyway, tks for ur new chap translated 😀

  5. It could be better but it wasn’t. The premise and MC motivation too weak, lack a lot descriptions. This is same as hikineet transfer to other world with his house, the authors can’t build a character good enough.For same premise Uchi musume is far better.


  6. Hmm… The fluffyness is strong in this one…
    But I follow way to many webnovels (and a lot of them won’t probably be ever fully translated)… Bah, the bread scene convinced me, I’ll follow this one too, let’s hope it will devellop well enough to be as good as uchi musume ;o) .

    For all the haters around here, there doesn’t need to be strong/stronk or assertive main characters in all the stories, I think in this one we will see the growth of both characters, father and daughter, as they become stronger by supporting each other.
