I’VE DROPPED THIS NOVEL because I’m a super slow translator and someone else is translating it now! You can find their translations here.

Title: とあるおっさんのＶＲＭＭＯ活動記 [Toaru Ossan no VRMMO Katsudouki]
Original (raws): http://ncode.syosetu.com/n2797bm
The first 200 chapters or so have been removed and replaced with summaries. Luckily, the originals can still be found at the below link.
38-year-old Tanaka Daichi’s childhood dream of playing a VRMMO has finally come to life. As he creates his character, he decides to choose skills that are considered useless by others, since he has no interest in playing like a main character. Follow the adventures of Daichi as he strives to use his mismatched set of worthless skills to achieve his dream goal of simply being able to enjoy an alternate life in a virtual reality.
Note: Chapters 1-5 have been already translated here, however I will be redoing them so that I can better understand the story myself for future chapters, and also because the translation was not very well done (not by native English speakers and apparently not by people very good at Japanese either). For example, that translation has weird sentences like “Novels and not the consumer of the RPG folks say and say that guy?” (コンシューマーのＲＰＧ means “console games”, not “consumer of the RPG” or whatever this is supposed to say, “You cum, there’s no need to bring their smell from.” (wtf), and “PT may be at about Crossed When you are acquainted with, and people coming over the voice still upon hearing the notoriety of the bow this much to would not be a loss in the sense humane early” (are we using English here??), as well as several mistranslations that reverse the meaning in the original.
