The middle-grade shadow spirit’s form grew in front of me.
It was around the size of a firefly before but right now, it’s about the size of my hand.
Looking closer, it resembles a dark ball.
Its gaze exudes both intelligence and reason but its light eyes are calming.
It went through an extraordinary change.
Truly an evolution.
“Somehow, I expected some kind of transformation just like what happened to Asuna and Jodi-san but evolving into a middle-grade spirit is outside my expectations.”
(This is also thanks to Master. We will work hard to meet your expectations, so please call us anytime.) 
The spirits were sincere.
“You mean… calling the ‘you’ right now, right?… The middle-grade spirit you?”
“I see…that’s… un…”
Noticing my expression, Asuna asked with a strange face…
“What’s wrong Liam? Showing such troubled face… Is there something wrong?”
“It’s not that bad but… I haven’t learned the summoning spell for the middle-grade spirits yet.”
“I still don’t have the required grimoire.”
“Liam’s family is a noble house, right? You still can’t get a grimoire with your status?”
“The grimoire for summoning a middle-grade spirit is so valuable even for the nobles. It’s to the point that it can be passed down as a family heirloom.” Jodi-san interrupted and answered on my behalf.
Just as I thought, the middle-grade summoning spirit grimoire’s value is high.
Obviously, I can’t get it easily.
But if middle-grade is so valuable that it can be a family heirloom…
Then, the high-grade spirit is at the level of a royal treasure, huh?
I really want to be able to summon a high-grade spirit in the future but if it’s that valuable, then this revelation is a bit… no, it’s really a troubling case.
(Please forgive my rudeness but… the ring which master is currently wearing… appears to be an ancient memory.)
With the spirit’s words, I raised my hand at my eye level to look at the said ring.
I’ve been wearing this for ages to the point that I didn’t realize that I am wearing it. It’s the ring that my master gave me.
“Ancient memory? It’s not the name of this thing…”
(It’s not a name of an object. Ancient memory is a device made with a secret method to store multiple magical knowledge with the use of high mithril silver as a medium.”
“Ah! You mean its classification? It certainly contains multiple magic knowledge…”
It seems that the magicpedia ring master has given me has a sort of technology called ancient memory.
“It does contain a hundred magic. But what about it?”
(As it is classified as an ancient memory, that ring is capable of storing middle-grade summoning magic.) 
“It can do that?”
(Using it as storage is a simple matter.)
And the spirit continued,
(But it only stores the magic knowledge. It’s up to master to train it.) 
The magicpedia I had received from Master and the emblem I received by containing Ladon inside my body both act as a medium for magic knowledge like a grimoire. But for the magic, I always need to develop it from scratch.
Even though the spirit’s words made it sound like it’s a downside, it’s actually just a normal thing for me.
“Please do it.”
(As you ordered.)
Soon after, the spirit’s body was tinged with light.
A magic circle expanded. Words that I have never seen before, glowed and swirled around its body before it got sucked inside the magicpedia that I’m wearing.
“What’s wrong, Liam?”
“Right now, the summoning magic for middle-grade dark spirit had entered my ring. It’s just like a grimoire…”
“Amaziiing. Jodi-san, if I’m not wrong, you said that it’s so valuable that a noble even turned it into an heirloom, right?”
“Yes. To think it can be acquired this easily…”
The surprised Asuna and astonished Jodi-san were openly showing their reactions.
On the other hand, I kept thinking about the magicpedia in our current situation.
I turned to Salamander, the spirit that I had summoned to brighten the room, and cast [Familia] towards it.
Just like Shade, it was enveloped inside the magic light and its appearance gradually changed.
I waited for a while… then a flame macho-man appeared at its place.
Its upper body is overflowing with muscles but there’s no lower body… just the upper body floating in the air…
It also has a face so it opened its mouth to talk just like a normal human.
(Ou! For making me evolve… thank you very much!”)
The flame macho-man, despite its fierce appearance, talked to me with a friendly tone.
“You also became a middle-grade spirit, right?”
(That’s right! Call me Efreet!)
“Then Efreet, you saw what happened just now, right? Please do the same and store middle-grade summoning magic inside my ring.”
Just like the Dark spirit, a magic circle and magic words swirled around Efreet’s body and went inside the ring.
“Did you also learn it?”
“It went inside my ring.”
I didn’t learn it yet. It’s something I have to practice on my own.
Even so, the magic that went inside the magicpedia is a great thing.
Without hesitation, I called forth all the low-grade spirits aside from Dark and Fire.
And with [Familia], I made contracts with them, causing their evolution. Then I stored the middle-grade summoning magic inside the magicpedia.
Fire, Water, Earth, Wind, Light, Dark.
I took all of their middle-grade summoning magic in one swoop.
Translator and Editor Notes :
YOU EXPECT? I THOUGHT YOU SAID IT WON’T DO ANYTHING. AND THE SPIRIT JUST SAID IT’S THANKS TO LIAM AND NOT EXPLAINING ANYTHING.
 Spoonfed. Again. At this point, I’m sure this world is built just for him.
 At this point, I think the training in the novel title is just bullshit :), there’s no challenge or uniqueness to it and only serve as the MC ‘unique’ trait.
So, as expected. the amazing Liam train will never stop, the development in this novel will only involve how amazing Liam is, and how he got all his magic without lifting a single finger. ~Tenka
 Who else is there to call? Your father? Lmao
 Oh wow. Isn’t that too convenient?
 Changed Radon to Ladon. ~Yuranon
