Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Chapter 469
Bear-san, Fights The Orochi, Part 1
One of Orochi’s heads burned bright red, burning the nearby vegetation.
“Damn it, and it’s hot.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san magically created a large body of water and diffused it over her head. Kagali-san covered her head with water.
Her clothes become transparent and look a little sexy. I guess this sexiness was probably due to her breasts. I looked at my breasts. After a few hundred years, they should grow similar to Kagali-san’s.
“Aren’t you feeling hot, Bear Missy!?” (Kagali)
Thanks to my bear equipment, it’s not hot. As a matter of fact, I am feeling very comfortable.
“I’m fine.” (Yuna)
“I see. Well, that’s good and all. But I’m the one feeling the heat just by looking at you.” (Kagali)
That doesn’t mean I can just take them off.
“So, Kagali-san. How do we fight it?” (Yuna)
“If possible, I want to knock it down to the sea.” (Kagali)
You can’t do that without moving its main body.
“If so, do you want to revive the other Orochi heads too?” (Yuna)
“Fufu. I’m kidding. We will be in more trouble than we are right now if we do that. If the water serpent were to revive and go to the sea, it would be even more difficult than it is now. I cannot fight on the sea. If the water serpent attacks, it can sink the ship with a single blow. Sadly, I’m weak on the sea.” (Kagali)
A single wave can rock a ship, and a big wave can sink it. Fighting monsters at sea makes it even more dangerous.
Given this, the king’s proposal to use mages to keep the serpent away from the country was a dangerous move.
Once out to sea, you have nowhere to run especially if you’re attracting the attention of a giant snake.
The mages and sailors who would take on the roles of being the decoy would undoubtedly die.
I don’t think the king should use that method with that in mind.
“So I guess that means we’ll just have to take it down here.” (Yuna)
“Yes, if we defeat it here, everything will be fine.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san and I smiled.
“Well then, let’s go.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san and I ran off.
I leaped high and rose to the vicinity of the Fire Orochi head. Then I shot a water ball at it.
The water ball evaporates the moment it hits the head of the Fire Orochi head.
It’s like spraying water droplets into a hot frying pan.
Kagali-san also shot water spray like a stream from both hands, but the water spray did no damage.
Fire’s weakness should be water. But why was the Fire Orochi head taking only a little bit of damage? It doesn’t appear to be doing any damage.
I tried to test something out; I shot a bear wind blade. The flames on the Fire Orochi head burned much more intensely.
This time, I created a large rock and shot it. It hit the head, but it just bounced off.
Hmmm, is the physics malfunctioning?
I shot a block of ice, but just like the rock, it just bounced off. However, it’s more effective than rock because the flame somehow weakened at the point where it hit.
“It’s being reinforced by magic. Aim for the eyes and maw, those areas!” (Kagali)
After Kagali-san said that, I aimed at the eyes and maw. But the head kept moving, so I couldn’t hit it. Also, it’s more than several dozen meters high, so I have to keep jumping.
We attacked when the head hit the ground, but it was difficult to time the attack because the head kept moving.
Even more troublesome was when its head crawled on the ground; it attacked with something like a wave using the surrounding trees, which made it difficult to fight.
Still, we timed our attacks.
I created and released a bear water ball about the size of Swaying Bear and Hugging Bear.
When the bear water hit the Fire Orochi head right square in the face, the bear water began to boil, and the bear water’s form could not be maintained, so it finally diffused as if to burst.
The flame became less vigorous where it hit. It seemed that the water ball had done a significant amount of damage. The Fire Orochi head shook in disgust. However, it did not seem to be a fatal wound.
Also, the only thing that would likely do damage would be electric-type magic.
I’m in front of Kagali-san, but it doesn’t matter now. I’ll give it a try.
I gathered magic power and created an electric bear. It made a crackling sound. The wind clung to the electric bear, and then I fired the electric bear. The electric bear hit the neck of the Fire Orochi head.
Some of the Fire Orochi head’s skin peeled off.
However, the missing skin restored itself when it covered itself with flames.
Ah, c’mon, it regenerates too fast.
And even electric-type magic is useless?
Just how tough is it? No, perhaps it also has high magic resistance.
Just like in the game, there were enemies for whom magic was ineffective. But this time, even a physical attack cannot damage it.
Isn’t this impossible?
“Bear Missy, you use such weird magic, don’t you?” (Kagali)
“It will be helpful if you don’t mind how it looks.” (Yuna)
“As long as we can beat it, I don’t care.” (Kagali)
“By the way, Kagali-san, do you have any other secret techniques?” (Yuna)
She’s a great fox that has lived for hundreds of years. It’s not surprising that she has a special move or two, like the tail that grows. Currently, three tails are visible.
“…I have, but I can’t use it now. If I use it, I won’t be able to move.” (Kagali)
Was that some kind of special move?
If I use up all my magic, I, too, will become lethargic and unable to move.
It reminds me of when I defeated the Kraken.
Moreover, Orochi has four heads. If she used it to defeat one, there would still be three more left.
I wish I could promise that I alone could defeat three of them. The fire elemental head of Orochi alone is already a nuisance.
Now then, how do we proceed from here?
For the time being, it’s pointless to try to destroy the head with flames.
Fire is best doused in a body of water like the sea, but it is impossible to drop just the Fire Orochi head in such a fashion.
Then there’s only one way.
“Kagali-san, I’m going to use a big one, so move back a little.” (Yuna)
“Got it.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san stepped backward.
I’m glad that she believed me and even did what I said. It simply meant she trusted me.
I ran towards the Fire Orochi head while gathering magic power in my bear puppet.
“Bear Missy!” (Kagali)
The hot air assaulted me, but it did not affect me in my bear costume.
I thrust out my bear puppet, charged with magic power. The bear puppet released a large amount of water. The water became a stream and rose to wrap around the Fire Orochi head.
And the water flow swirled.
The water spun like a tornado made of water, rising from the burning neck of the Fire Orochi head.
Although, I didn’t want to use it if I could because it drains a lot of magic power. When I used a large tornado of wind during the Sacred Tree incident, it also drained my magic considerably.
But for a short time, my magic power should suppress it.
The water tornado kept enveloping the Fire Orochi head and extinguished its flames.
Alright, it’s gone.
The Fire Orochi head collapsed, and the water tornado disappeared.
“Bear Missy! You did it!” (Kagali)
Kagali-san, who was behind me, overtook me and started running towards the Fire Orochi head. And when she was about to land an attack, the Fire Orochi head began to reignite.
Hey, some people went to so much trouble to erase your flame, and now it’s back!?
The Water Tornado spell extinguished the flames in the Fire Orochi head but only temporarily, and soon the snake’s head began to burn again. The Fire Orochi head raised itself and shook sideways before continuing to raise havoc.
It’s not just the thrashing. There were even big burning trees coming at us. Even if we run to the side, it’s too long and wide to evade. Kagali-san and I jumped high.
“Your tail will burn.” (Yuna)
Kagali-san shot water at it while doing evasion movements, but it was like spraying water droplets on a red hot stone.
“It seems it has accumulated more magic than I thought.” (Kagali)
“You mean those flames are made of magic power?” (Yuna)
“I told you in the beginning, didn’t I? Its body is covered with magic power.” (Kagali)
That’s right. She told me that it’s hardening its skin with magic.
“Orochi’s body and neck are covered with magic to harden its skin, but what about its flames?.” (Yuna)
“It’s the same with the other serpent heads, you know?” (Kagali)
“Is that so?” (Yuna)
This fight may be more trouble than it seems.
The Fire Orochi head raised its head and became furious, opening its maw to spit out loads of flame wherever it turned. We avoided it, but the trees around us burst into flames.
“This is bad, over there too!” (Kagali)
A mass of flame released by the snakehead was heading for the building where Mumroot and Kagali’s old party once sealed the other Orochi head.
The flame ball struck the building, and the building started to burn.
It’s the building nearby. Ruimin or Sakura shouldn’t be in that building.
It would have been dangerous if those two were there.
“Bear Missy! Take care of Orochi. I’ll head for the building.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san ran off.
Even if she asked me that, what can I do?.
I released another water tornado to suppress it.
The water tornado assaulted the Fire Orochi head once again.
And once again, the flames in the neck disappeared momentarily, and the attack abruptly halted.
However, it’s just too strong.
How did they beat this thing in the past?
The inability to destroy it from inside the body was unexpected. I was naive to think that anyone could defeat any large monster by destroying its body from the inside.
The Fire Orochi head rubbed its neck against the ground to remove the residue of the water tornado.
At the same time, the ground shook.
Could this shaking be due to the building being destroyed by the flames earlier?
The ground shook even more.
Was there another Orochi head coming back to life!?
At this rate, we’ll be dealing with two gigantic Orochi heads simultaneously.
We don’t have much time!
Also, how long would it take to revive!?
When the Fire Orochi head got resurrected, there was still some time between the shakings.
What do we do now?
How do we beat them?
The Fire Orochi head alone was too tough to handle. We couldn’t destroy it from inside the body. Rocks cannot damage it even if they hit it. Wind does not work. Water magic was only at a level of harassment.
So then, electric magic?
I let my thoughts run wild.
Meanwhile, the ground shook.
The fire serpent breathed out fire. I kept thinking while avoiding it.
Where do I destroy it to take it down?
The heart? The magic stone? Where was it? In the torso?
As I was thinking about it, the earth tremors grew louder, the ground cracked, and a second head slowly emerged from the ground.
……The second Orochi head.
“I’m sorry. I couldn’t prevent its revival.” (Kagali)
Kagali-san comes over apologetically.
It’s not Kagali-san’s fault.
When the Fire Orochi head’s flame balls struck the building, the other Orochi head got resurrected. I should’ve prevented that fire attack.
You’ve just revived, so I’d like you to be quiet for a while.
When I was thinking about that, the wind started to pick up.
I immediately found out the reason.
It’s because the wind was clinging to the neck of the newly resurrected Orochi head.
“So the next serpent is the wind-type. It’s the worst matchup for us. If it had been a water-type, it would have been a good element to eliminate the fire-type.” (Kagali)
Then remember which Orochi head was sealed where. I was tempted to refute that to her.
The two Orochi heads tower above.
Sorry for the delay.
It will be irregular until after Golden Week.
Thank you for your understanding.
