Shatei Kyokufuri Yumi-Ojisan - Chapter 219
Data.209 – Another Perspective: Romance and Reality
During the same time that Necoco and Macoco had bumped into each other…
“Giant Star! Giant Swiiiing!!”
Anne was swinging her enlarged iron ball and knocking down buildings.
By flattening the ground around her, she would smoke out the small enemies that scampered around…
“Bitz Arrow Twinshot!”
The bolts shot through the air like thunder and grazed Anne’s body.
Achile Alstar had gotten past her Giant Star, and she scattered crossbow bolts as she tried to get closer to Anne.
In spite of the youthful face and small frame, there was a smoothness to her movements.
She was clearly used to fighting…!
Gemini Stars was a charge attack that created another spiked iron ball on the other side of her chain.
So while it was only for a limited time, Anne was able to wield two iron balls.
In other words, twice the attack ability… Well, not quite.
Though the new iron ball could use skills, it could not use charge attacks.
While pulling her main iron ball back, she used a skill on the second ball in order to block the bolts.
The iron ball itself was quite large even without skills, and so while it didn’t cover her entirely, it was more than enough to guard her.
The problem was that it was too heavy for precise movements.
Also, the person she was fighting, Achile, happened to be a player that was good with tight turns…!
“I got this! Bitz Arrow – Zero Shot!”
Zero Shot was a skill that was similar to In Fight Arrow with more peaky features. In exchange for having nearly zero range, it raised the power of the arrow greatly.
At the same time, it had the special effect of being able to fuse it with other skills and charge attacks.
Not only that, it did not just add to the attack power or effects of the fused skills or charge attacks, but granted special buffs related to the skill as well…!
This time, Bitz Arrow had been fused with Zero Shot.
It was an enveloped version of Kyuji’s skill, Thunder Arrow.
Blitz Arrow prioritized speed over power, and so it moved just like lightning.
Even if it wasn’t on the same level as Sky Tear, most people would not be able to follow it with their eyes.
And by fusing it with Zero Shot, a speed buff was added.
Achile was originally a rear guard, and had low durability.
If she was hit by someone like Anne, who was all about power, she would not get out lightly.
And so she raised her speed in order to dodge the iron balls, and get up close. Because Anne was not good when it came to close quarters combat!
“Tsk…! Chain Punch!”
If she couldn’t guard herself with the two iron balls, that just left the chain…!
Chain Punch was a skill where you wrapped the chain around your fist and punched the enemy. But it was mostly a joke skill, both in terms of appearance and effect.
It did not do much damage, and was not enough to block Achile’s attacks…!
In the end, Anne was hit by Zero Shot and went flying into the wall of a building!
“Grrr…! The buildings have already been fixed…!”
She had knocked them down with Giant Star, and yet they were back as if nothing had happened..!
Yes, in the Undead Town, the buildings were reconstructed no matter how many times you destroyed them.
From the mist to the obstacles. This really was a town that was suited for assassins.
“I’ve been blessed with a rare chance to fight Macoco, a person virtual occult maniacs look up to! I can’t lose here without being able to do anything…!”
“What!? You know Macoco too!?”
Achile chased after Anne, but stopped before unleashing a follow up attack.
“N-no, I don’t know her personally! I’m just a fan!”
“And uh…what’s this virtual occult?”
In spite of them being in the middle of a fight, Anne started to explain to her about the virtual occult.
At the same time, she talked about the AUO incident.
To put it simply, she liked Macoco because she was the only person who might know something about an unexplained incident, and because she was so skilled at the game that people thought she was a Virtualien.
“I see, that’s why. People think about the incident like that… Well, Macoco doesn’t like talking about it, so I didn’t know… Well, that fight… Hehehe…”
Achile started muttering to herself.
Perhaps she was happy about something, as her body swayed back and forth.
Well, she tended to do that a lot, and was often restless.
While she looked like a pro when she was playing, she talked and acted like someone who was a beginner.
Like a country bumpkin who had just come out to the city…
Anne thought she now understood why Necoco had called Achile a ‘strange girl.’
At the same time, she felt her occultic soul being stirred…something was happening to her.
“Um! I think we should continue fighting then!”
She would not be able to concentrate if this continued…
And so she had to seal her occultic soul and ask Achile to resume fighting.
She could not ambush someone who had listened to her speak.
However, Achile said something very surprising.
“You said that you feel a sense of romance in the occult, yes? I believe it is a curiosity towards the unknown.”
“But what if tomorrow, you found out what someone, who was unknown, really was. And they talked to you as a neighbor as if nothing happened… Could you still love them?”
“…! Do you mean…!”
Anne’s words were interrupted by the sounds of a building being destroyed!
Pieces of the structure went flying with a cloud of smoke…
And then the person who appeared from within was…!
“Oh? Now isn’t this a great place to be?”
But she was supposed to be fighting with Necoco. Macoco Strange!
