Shatei Kyokufuri Yumi-Ojisan - Chapter 220
Data.210 – Another Perspective: Cat God Cat Beckon
Anne and Achile’s voices harmonized.
The sudden intrusion. And it was Macoco no less. So their reaction was natural.
Not only was she a special person for these two, but she was much stronger…
Her sudden appearance changed the situation greatly!
“I guess that’s enough talking for now…!”
It was 2 vs 1, and so there was no question about it. Anne had to run away.
On the other hand, Achile and Macoco moved to kill Anne together.
“Macoco! Together we can…”
“Actually, I was hoping that you’d do something about the enemy that is behind me!”
Macoco was holding the boomerang in her hand without throwing it, and running.
Someone as good as her should have been able to throw it even if she was retreating…
But the others quickly understood the reason for this.
“Thunder Sky Sever Claws – Dual Claws!”
The unleashed thunder slash attacks came at Macoco…!
Every time she swung the boomerang in her hand, blue light flew from the blade.
They looked like small butterflies, but they were actually boomerangs made of energy.
The dancing boomerangs spun rapidly and gathered around the flying thunderblades like moths to a flame.
And then, they covered the blades entirely as if eating them until they were dead…!
Still, Macoco was refusing to throw her weapon, the boomerang.
Butterfly Boomerang was just the unleashing of energy.
She would have been able to throw it as soon as the energy was released, meaning she could attack again immediately..
However, she stubbornly kept it in her hand.
“Achile! We’ll target the cat!”
“Ca-cat!? Which cat!?”
There were three…cats here!
One was Necoco Strange after changing her race to Nekomata through an effect from Yokai Transform: Nekomata.
In this state, your attacks and speed stats were raised, and you could jump in the air twice.
Furthermore, you looked more like a cat than usual.
The other two were a red cat and a blue cat that were created through Necoco’s Miracle Effect, ‘Cat God Cat Beckon.’
The red cat was the ‘Sun Beckoning Cat,’ while the blue one was the ‘Shadow Banish Cat.’ And they both had their own effects.
“The red one! The one with the boomerang stuck to it!”
Macoco pointed to the red cat. Indeed, there was a boomerang stuck on it.
As if being pulled by a magnetic force…
Yes, this was the effect of the Sun Beckoning Cat.
It pulled in projectiles so they stuck to its body!
Not only that, but its pull was so strong, that you would not be able to retrieve it if it was an ordinary skill or charge attack!
In other words, the boomerang Macoco was holding now was not the one she used against Kyuji, but a weaker backup.
And as long as the Sun Beckoning Cat was there, she could not throw it!
“Boomerangs don’t fly that fast, so it’s able to catch it with the flat part of the blade, but it won’t be so easy with bolts! They are too fast, and you can shoot as many as you want, so it doesn’t really matter!”
If you don’t catch the boomerang after throwing it, then you can’t move on to the next attack.
However, arrows and bolts were infinite.
And so wasting one or two or even ten was not a big deal.
Even if they were caught, you would not run out and could continue shooting!
“Miliardo Arrow Twin Shot!”
Achile directed her gauntlet crossbows at Necoco and activated the charge attack.
As the name implied, it would unleash a million arrows…
No, not exactly, but it would seem like it when they came at you like a rushing storm.
If Kyuji’s Bow Shower or Arrow Storm were wide area spreading attacks, then Achile’s Miliardo Arrow was focused on one point.
While you could only deal damage in a small area, it was much more efficient if you were only attacking a single enemy.
The force that they were fired at was also very strong, and so it could also be used to push back at an enemy attack.
Against this wave of arrows, Necoco put her blue cat forward.
The blue cat’s effect was the opposite of the red cat. In other words, it could blow away projectiles!
The numerous arrows bounced away as if being repelled by an opposing magnet.
Sadly, they only bounced off, and it was not a counter that sent them back to the enemy.
On the other hand, it had the power to block a charge attack head on. But in the end, both cats were only effective for intercepting attacks.
Usually, you would want to take these two cats and go in for a close quarters attack, but as Miliardo Arrow was too strong, the blue cat could not move forward…!
And these two were not like Unisons who could move around freely. They were closer to optional drones in shooters.
They could not move too far away from Necoco, and Necoco could not move away from them.
In other words, as long as the blue cat was being pushed back by the charge attack, Necoco could not move…!
“I see an opening! Giant Daybreak Star!”
On the other hand, it also meant that Achile could not move either.
Anne started to swing her iron ball, and then she threw it towards Achile!
Now she could take her down…is what she thought.
But the most dangerous player on the field was right there!
The circular boomerang that Macoco was using as a shield transformed so that the blades had jagged teeth, and then it started to spin rapidly!
It was like a buzz saw that targeted Anne’s neck…!
However, she could still guard herself if she immediately deactivated the charge attack and pulled the iron ball back by force!
But Anne did not deactivate the charge attack.
It continued to shoot towards the immobile Achile!
“I see. Well, you do have guts.”
“It’s an honor to be praised by you.”
Anne knew from the beginning that she would be attacked by Macoco.
And yet she had prioritized defeating Achile.
The reason was simple.
Because she knew that Necoco had the ability to face Macoco.
When appearing on the battlefield, Macoco had clearly been running away from Necoco.
If it was 1 vs 1, she should be able to manage…
In that case, Anne thought that it was important for her to do her best and take out any enemy that would get in their way.
But Macoco and Achile’s connection was deeper and stronger than expected.
If it was 2 vs 2, they would be at a disadvantage, as she and Necoco had not known each other long.
And so she had to defeat Achile, even if it meant sacrificing herself…!
The Circular Boomerang cut through Anne’s neck!
But Anne was tough!
Even when hit in her weak spot, one attack was not enough to sink her!
And Macoco knew this.
She spun around and swung the other boomerang she was holding!
“Beam Blade Boomerang!”
And then a red blade shot out and slashed Anne…!
At the same time, Giant Daybreak Star crushed Achile… Or it should have.
“It looks like my attack caused you to miss, so that the iron ball hit the ground next to Achile. Also, now that you’ve been killed, your attacks won’t have hitboxes. Even if the after shock hit Achile, it wouldn’t be able to damage…”
Due to the dust in the air from the iron ball, she could not see Achile.
However, Anne knew that Macoco was right.
She was more than capable of attacking while also keeping track of the iron ball’s trajectory.
“You really are an occultic person, Macoco. When listening to Achile talk about you… No, her mere existence assured me of it. Still, we will not lose this battle…!”
As Anne disappeared, the announcement of her death rang.
And then…came the announcement for Achile’s death.
“…! That means they died at the same time… Had I read the situation wrong?”
Macoco muttered as she dodged the burning meteorites that fell from the sky!
She had seen this attack before.
“To think that there was another person here…!”
“You are a special player. Everyone is focused on you. And so…even a player like me has a chance to launch a surprise attack.”
It had been Satomi who had dealt the final blow to the damaged Achile while they were hidden in the smoke!
“According to our plan, I should have attacked Vera. However, since I encountered you by accident, I couldn’t just back away. Or Anne’s efforts would have been wasted…!”
“I knew that you were planning to attack us individually. But now that you’re here… I won’t let you escape, alright?”
“Yes, I know that. Unison Trinity!”
Satomi summoned the three Unisons and then attacked Macoco…!
This wasn’t an action based on emotion.
Necoco’s miracle effect had a time limit.
And it would be difficult for her to face Macoco once it ran out…
However, as long as it was activated, she was more than a threat.
And so Satomi had decided that now was the time to take Macoco down.
Yes, now that they both were using miracle effects, this was their greatest chance…!
It was different from Anne, who had believed in Necoco’s strength alone, but this was the answer Satomi came up with when considering their chances of winning!
“Now, it’s time to open the zoo. Well, there are some yokai here as well.”
“Very interesting. I haven’t been to the zoo in a long time. Unfortunately, my crow is not with me!”
Necoco, Red cat, Blue Cat, Satomi, Gochu, Buffy, Kapaparuto vs Macoco.
The 7 vs 1 fight was about to begin!
