Shatei Kyokufuri Yumi-Ojisan - Chapter 197
Data.187 – Old Bowman, Fixed Artillery
“Inferno Arrow Tempest!”
Numerous arrows that were enveloped in dark red flames shot out across the battlefield.
At this distance, I could shoot as much as I wanted without fear of counterattacks.
I saw that Anne was moving away while the enemy still wouldn’t notice her, and so I had also moved to a high platform so that I could attack with a charge attack and take them by surprise.
In order to do this, I needed a smoke screen that would be truly shocking. And so I had the idea of unleashing Armageddon Arrow.
The result was that it was even better than I had expected, but it also did great damage to my teammates, which I was very sorry for.
Of course, I had not known that Petta could turn into an angel or use this insane charge attack called Apocalypse Melody.
It meant that she too was someone who was capable enough to fight while also holding back for the time being.
However, combination charge attacks were very risky, as your Unison would go into cool down when it was finished.
If I was solo, then losing Garbow would only put me in danger. However, since I was in a party, I could be putting everyone in a disadvantageous position.
And so I did feel that I had been a little reckless this time.
I would have to take it as a lesson learned. But for now, I had to think of the current battle alone.
Now that I have taken position up here, victory will be ours no matter what!
“I let my guard down! It’s too much that I cannot even laugh! But I still have a countermeasure…! Ninpo – Tatami Flip Art!”
Cymba stomped hard on the ground, and then a tatami appeared out of nowhere!
The skill didn’t just flip a tatami, but summoned one.
However, I didn’t think that a tatami mat would be very durable as a wall…
“Flip tatamis! And flip projectiles! That’s what it means!”
The arrows that hit the tatami mat did a 180 degree turn and shot back at me…!
I see. This definitely was a countermeasure.
If my arrows were being reflected as they were, then the range would also be the same.
And so they could definitely reach me!
“Shit. I have to change the tide of battle while I can still fly…! Echo Melody!”
“They taught me rather harshly so that even I can deal with the old man… Rise in Revolt!”
The other two also used reflecting type skills…!?
Apparently, the entire party was wary of me.
I suppose it was an honor…!
“However, no one knows more about my arrows than me! Ha!”
And so I slid down the jumbo slide!
The slide twisted and turned many times, and was very long.
Its angles were also sharp and it was very fast.
As I had targeted the enemy with precision, it would hit me if they were reflected back.
On the other hand, they wouldn’t hit me if I escaped!
And so the slide was perfect both for attacking and escaping!
That being said, the end of the jumbo slide was far below.
If I slid down all of the way, it would be quite difficult to get back up.
And so partway down, I hit the brakes and stood up. And then I began to run back up the slide!
Running up a slide… I had done that a lot as a child…
However, that was only in a small park where there were hardly any other people.
You wouldn’t be able to do it on a big slide like this, as a lot of other people would be sliding down.
Kids, don’t copy this at home!
“Actually…this is very tiring…!”
I would not be able to get back to the top immediately…!
Oh, well. I would take pauses to cover my teammates and then start climbing when I have a chance to…!
You can do it… Necoco, Anne!
◆ ◆ ◆
“Well, look at that. The old man is playing on the slide! We shouldn’t have allowed him to run so far away, but I suppose we can take out the others while he’s struggling over there. So it all works out for us in the end!”
Cymba sounded like he was in a good mood, but deep inside, he was annoyed at having allowed Kyuji to escape.
The impact of Death Flag had been so great that Kyuji himself forgot to fight in the way that he knew best, so it was no wonder that Cymba would forget as well.
However, as a veteran who sometimes led the party, Cymba had a strong sense of responsibility that he could not shake off.
(Hata-chan accepted an old and lonely gamer like me. While it was to balance out a guild that had too many people that were accepted based on uniqueness, I am still grateful…)
Hatake’s guild was a complete mess, so much so that he once had to rely on Kyuji’s help in order to clear one of the trials for the zodiac labyrinths.
After that, he tried to bring in players who could fight and add stability.
Because if they were going to struggle during that event, then they would surely struggle even more in future events.
And so Cymba thought that as a result of that, he was invited to join. But it was not the truth.
Because they had not yet found a stable member who could fight.
So, why was he invited to join…?
It was because he too was someone so unique that it would be hard to find a better match for the guild!
Yes, just by being an Arabian, feminine ninja character, he had been invited.
While Cymba had misunderstood the intent, there was nothing calculated about their relationship.
In fact, it was unlikely that the word ‘calculated’ even existed in Hatake’s dictionary.
(Wait for me, everyone…! I will lead us to victory! Now, it’s time to strike back!)
Just then, a hole opened up under Cymba’s feet.
It was so sudden that he couldn’t even enter a defensive stance as he fell heavily on his haunches.
“You were saying something earlier about plugging holes so that things don’t fall in afterwards… Was that about the Charin fight?”
It was Necoco who waited in the bottom of the pit.
She had used Drill Claw to dig through the ground and avoid Kyuji’s Inferno Arrow Tempest, and then moved right under Cymba’s feet.
“Th-that’s right! It’s a famous story! Had you self-destructed instead of digging a hole and running away, Charin would not have been able to use the hole and escape. Then you could have won that battle much easier…!”
“I can’t believe you would say that to my face!! Something that’s been bothering me all of this time…! You’ll pay for this!”
And inside of the hole, the fury of the cat exploded…!
