Shatei Kyokufuri Yumi-Ojisan - Chapter 170
Data.160 – Old Bowman, Starcrush Arrow
“Combined charge attack?! Isn’t it a bit early for that?”
As using a combined charge attack would result in a long cool down for your Unison, it would be a significant blow to our fighting force.
Garbow was our scout, and could also make clones.
I wished that I didn’t have to use it, but there was a reason that I didn’t have a choice this time.
“I think that the barrier can only be destroyed by one hit of a charge attack that deals tremendous damage at once. For instance, instead of using 4 attacks that do 50 damage each for a total of 200, it’s better to use one attack that does 100 damage… See?”
“In other words, any attacks that are lower than the requirement are nullified. So unless you can exceed that line, you can hit it a hundred times and it will be pointless!”
“Yes, exactly! If that barrier was purely something with high defense ability and durability, I don’t think that it would have come out unscathed after being hit by 4 powerful charge attacks. But if there was some kind of nullifying effect, it would make sense. After all, those attacks weren’t even treated as attacks…!”
My Inferno Arrow Tempest was a combination of Inferno Arrow and Heavenly Wing Arrow Storm. You could call it a fused charge attack that was a pure evolution of Burning Arrow Storm.
Necoco’s Thunder Sky Sever Claws was a thunder cutting attack.
And Dual Claws were a skill that allowed you to use a charge attack twice in a row while ignoring the cool down.
In other words, it could make Necoco’s charge attacks twice as powerful.
The demerit was that the cool down was also doubled.
It seemed like a pretty bad demerit, but as the charge attack’s cool down was short to begin with, and lacked power, Necoco would grumble that her attacks only did decent damage after she used Dual Claws.
Unison Maestro allowed Satomi to use his Unison’s skills and charge attacks.
Through this, he could activate the same charge attack as Gochu simultaneously, and raise its firepower.
Furthermore, as some of Gochu’s stats would be added to Satomi, he could do a little extra damage while fighting with his staff.
As he was able to resist even during an ambush, Satomi said that there was no need to be too protective over him.
As for Anne’s Giant Daybreak Star… It was a fused charge attack that she had used a lot on the Ghost Float.
It was big, heavy, and strong! That was enough!
And so it was ridiculous that the barrier had taken no damage after being hit by all of them.
It must be nullifying all damage that was under a certain level…!
“But can’t we just go and attack from inside of the tower before you resort to combined charge attacks? That green slime is just covering the outside, so we should be able to go up the stairs and…”
“No, that’s too dangerous. They would know that we would try to attack them from inside. After all, they can’t see what we’re doing because of the barrier. So the only thing they can focus on is the stairs.”
“Ah! That’s true!”
Even when I was a beginner, I had been cautious enough to place mines near the entrance of the tower.
And so I doubted that pros like Slime Man would have no security measures.
Clearly, the correct thing to do was break in from the front…!
“I’ll destroy the barrier. The rest of you, prepare to take over the roof as soon as the barrier goes down.”
They all said ‘understood.’
Now that it was decided, it was time to put it into action.
“Garbow! Let’s go!”
The first combined charge attack was Meteor Bow.
I had unlocked it during the zodiac event, when we were doing the hidden beast trial, and our ‘bond points’ had reached the necessary level.
The second combined charge attack likely needed more bond points and for the Unison to have finished their 3rd evolution.
I think that the reason that he didn’t learn the second one right after his 3rd evolution was because the required bond points had gone up.
And so it was necessary to rack up more bond points after he evolved into Ravenalligate.
“Combined charge attack…!”
This time, Garbow did not fall apart and combine with my bow.
Garbow transformed completely and he himself turned into a single arrow…!
It was the exact opposite of Meteor Bow, which unleashed numerous arrows like meteors.
This only shot one arrow, and it did not glow and was not particularly fast.
Instead, it was thick and rotated at a great speed, which caused it to grow hot from the friction with the air, making it glow red.
And it destroyed everything that it touched as it moved in a straight line…!
Due to the effect of Star Area Range, I could not make it curve.
And I could not combine it with other skills by using Arrow Fusion.
And it could not be canceled once released.
The arrow was like the will of a stubborn man, and was my strongest trump card that could crush even the stars…!
The height of our efforts, Armageddon Arrow!
The Slime Barrier popped!
Well done, Garbow! Leave the rest to me!
We’ll go to the finals together…!
“Huh!? I didn’t expect you to break the barrier so quickly!”
Slime Man’s voice echoed from the top.
I replied in a loud voice.
“A barrier like this won’t even buy you any time!”
“Hmph…! The timing was just a little unexpected! I knew it would break eventually! It’s four against four! The battle has only just begun!”
“Is that right?”
Slime Man screamed.
Yes. There was no one around me now.
This was our plan.
Necoco would use her claws to climb up the walls of the building and enter it as soon as the barrier was destroyed. Then she would assassinate one of the members of Slime Man.
Just as all attention moved to her, Satomi, Gochu, and Anne would climb up the stairs loudly in order to distract them.
Like this, the enemy would have to look in two directions at once.
If they were hesitant while facing Necoco, then only a silent death would await them.
The quick reflexes that came from her young age meant that she would attack before they had time to utter a word.
And then, my job was to distract the most dangerous member of Slime Man!
I just needed a few seconds. I just wanted to avoid having Necoco and Slime Man clash head on.
I rated him highly as a player.
And so I had purposely provoked him so that his attention would be on me.
“Let’s end this here! Slime Man!”
