Monster Musume chapter 94: Mock battle with Toururi-san
Toururi-san shook her axe and all my bees that I released were destroyed. At the same time, she is pierced by earth pillars from the surroundings, but they are crushed by one swing of her arm. As it is, Toururi-san dashed towards me. Since I will be clogged in an instant if she approaches, I have to take a certain distance absolutely. Raising earth pillars from the rear immediately, I put my hands on the top and retreat at once.
While retreating, I release a barrage of heavy fire bees. At first, I was using light fire bees, but hitting Toururi didn’t work at all. Even if it goes bad, it is fire magic, which means that she will feel the heat….
“Don’t run away, you said yourself to fight fair!” Toururi
“It’s fair and square; I’m a talisman art user!” Tsuchio
The enclosing rock snakes issue a attack while staggering their timing, but they are all crushed by a single axe swing again. However, I was able to set several talismans. She isn’t a opponent who I can win even if it takes time, so I have to press at once.
“If you’re not coming, then…” Toururi
When Toururi-san swung her axe, I’m blown away while thinking that something transparent hit me. Dull pain is felt from my belly…was I hit from a magic slash? I wonder if that was Toururi-san´s purpose. Even though I got hit by a momentary slash, I have no pain. Is Lime doing something?
Standing up quickly, I confirmed Toururi-san’s position. She was thinking that I was knocked down, therefore she is surprised to see me standing up. Alright, that’s a good position. She didn’t watch her feet.
“Close, rock wall!” Tsuchio
Rock masses climb up from the ground and confine Toururi-san. After all, a demon who originally has inhuman strength is indifferent to such a mechanism. Evil at the time of war, is interesting to catch.
“Don’t think that you can stop me with such a thing!” Toururi
However, Toururi’s power is far above those who I had fought before. Hitting the wall with her axe several times, it will be most likely be destroyed. I had predicted it, but it is faster than I imagined. Shall I use that!?
“Tsuiraku Chiyo!” Tsuchio
I earn time with the rock walls and I’m able to use my trump card. Because I had no time, I shortened the reservoir. The power drops, but it is totally high compared to the bees or pillars. And there is a dramatic effect….
Toururi-san who came out of the wall intercepts the Tsuiraku Chiyo that falls from above. Her axe collides with my talisman art, causing sparks to scatter and it seems that her axe is pushed back a little. I thought I have done it, but Toururi-san´s magical power increased and her muscles bulged at a stretch and broke apart. Oh, that is the sign of that fine paper!
“Well, humans are like this after all.” Toururi
“Don’t make me humanity’s representative! There are people who are more like monsters, too!” Tsuchio
“That’s very rare.” Toururi
Damn, neither the fire bees nor the rock snakes worked. I don’t have time to cast a overlap and my Tsuiraku Chiyo didn’t work either. After all, you can not compete without using an interlocking hand. Only the hornets remain, and I need to do something no matter what….
“…There is only one method. The Tsuiraku Chiyo didn’t work and that isn’t tested so far, so the power issue is unknown. Let’s try it here.” Tsuchio
“? What are you saying…” Toururi
Just because there are five, it is a coincidence. There was no aim. If this doesn’t work, then I have nothing left. Anyway, let’s do it.
I arrange five talismans circularly in the air. Toururi-san is prepared, but she keeps preparing regardless. Even if she tries to shorten the distance, it is probably faster for me to release that talisman art. It is easy to say that it is an circle arrangement in the air, but this time it is different. Rather than raising the power along the five lines, I use five talismans at the same time. There is no need to stick to the circle, but I always do it. It is easier to get used to.
“Tentatively, in this state, it is my last trump card. Union, Queen firebee.” Tsuchio
The hornets come together, start to burn, and a huge fire bee is completed. It is even bigger than the hornets, so the queen bee has dignity as expected.
With my order, the huge queen bee spread its wings and quickly approaches Toururi-san, who tries to slash with her axe, but the queen bee is made of flames, so it can’t be cut.
Toururi, who is giving up quenching the queen bee, uses her axe as a shield and setting up her defense. The queen bee struck from the front and a large fire pillar rose up from the training ground at the next moment.
“This is the the result…I have to make it again. Now, Toururi-san…”
The fire pillar existed for a while, but it disappeared in less than a few minutes. In the inside, Toururi-san is in a defending position with her axe. Her skin is burned on some spots, but is she still alive? This is not good, did she miss her chance to make it in time?
“Hot…you’re doing something out of a mock battle. I got burned.” Toururi
“I’m sorry, it’s not like I’m refraining. I will let Shadow-san treat you later.” Tsuchio
“It’s okay, but I’m going to make a decision.” Toururi
Saying so, Toururi-san squirrels down and says something powerfully. She chants now, but this time she began to chant overlapping songs. When I thought that she kicked the floor, she quickly stopped in front of my eyes. Then, swings her axe with momentum against my belly. Soon after I felt something, my consciousness was harvested with a single shot.
“Uuhh…it hurts.” Tsuchio
“You woke up, I thought you will sleep forever.” Toururi
“Ah, Toururi-san…” Tsuchio
While rubbing my aching stomach, I get up. Toururi-san leans against her axe and I look at the center of the training ground.
“Haa, I ended up losing after all…” Tsuchio
“…Your belly is okay, I blew it off quite strongly.” Toururi
“There are no strange places, so it will be okay. What about Shadow-san? Ah, she cured me. Thanks.” Tsuchio
“I don’t mind it. Also, this. Your familiars told me to give this to you when you wake up.” Toururi
The things that I got handed was the cut-in-half talismans of my hornets and the burnt black Tsuiraku Chiyo talisman. I didn’t think that the hornet talisman would survive…however I can’t put out a hornet anymore. As soon as it gets out, it will burn out in no time.
“Is that what you used with the magic a moment ago? You can’t use it anymore like that.” Toururi
“Well…the Tsuiraku Chiyo talisman can´t be used anymore, but the hornets still can be used a little…” Tsuchio
When using my magical power for the talisman, weak signs glowed and small hornets appeared. Their fire is weak, just like a flame of a candle swaying in the wind. …Even a suicide bomb wouldn’t burn this talisman.
“…I appreciate your efforts; next time I will make a talisman with better paper.” Tsuchio
As I thought, the hornet talismans were destroyed into ashes and scattered. Although five hornets were combined, no big damage was given…I guess it will be overwhelming.
“Isn’t it magic? Why are you talking about magic…you are crazy, aren’t you? ” Toururi
“Attachment will spring for the tools you used for many years. The period of use is short, but since they have been working with me for so long, it’s natural that I appreciate it.” Tsuchio
“Hmm, I don’t understand humans after all. Magic is magic.” Toururi
“I don’t deny that. So where did everyone else go while I was sleeping?” Tsuchio
“Over there.” Toururi
Toururi pointed to the training ground where Yukurishisu vs Ruu & Rin and Tyres vs Lime and Nichrome were fighting against each other. Everyone was doing a mock battle…why not Toururi? However 1 vs 2 is unfair.
“It isn’t unfair, but instead fine. I can not move for a while.” Toururi
“Eh, why?” Tsuchio
“This big body is hurting all at once and it was decided that the burden on my legs was too big. It will be fine for usual fighting, but I cannot keep up with my older sister or your familiars.” Toururi
“Really. What does Toururi-san think of my familiars?” Tsuchio
“…I think they’re strong. Even though they are doing fine, they interact with my elder sister and brother in the same way as I do.” Toururi
As I can see from this point, Yukurishisu is fighting with empty fists and magic, while Tyres-san wields a large amount of weapons in his hands. Ruu is exchanging fists with Yukurishisu, but Yukurishisu seems to be better. Rin cooperates somehow while striking at each other. Lime is also struggling with Tyres as opponent and avoids his attacks as much as possible. Nichrome is obstructing by shooting with her guns, but her weapons are struggling quite a bit because of their distractions. Either way, it is just unfair and I’d like to give a hand to change the flow.
“Really, you don’t have to. If they enter the knights order, they will be able to quickly become knight leaders. Moreover, there is room for growth and they could become the head of the knights order. Yeah, it is too lazy for them to be your familiars, after all.” Toururi
“…Is that so?” Tsuchio
“Why, don’t you reply properly? It seems there is consciousness that you’re lucky.” Toururi
“Well, that’s because I’m a stupid student. I’m lucky from the beginning. In the first place, meeting Ruu was also a lucky event. If Ruu wasn’t there, I would have turned into seaweed algae now and be eaten by fishes.” Tsuchio
No, really, falling on Ruu´s back is the biggest luck of my life. If I didn’t fall on Ruu, I would have died by crashing onto the water surface. Even if I survived, I would have drowned or be eaten by a demonic beast…. Anyway, it is no doubt that it would’ve been a dead end.
“Please forget such obvious things. How about trying a mock battle with me? If there is something else, I would like you to tell me…” Toururi
“…Should we evaluate our mock battle?” Tsuchio
“I agree. To evaluate as support, I wouldn’t know without fighting your familiars.” Toururi
“If you evaluate as a magician, I think it’s pretty much the same. Although the amount of magical power isn’t so much, you use talismans to replace it. If it is a certain demon beast, you can cut out too much.” Toururi
Oh, it is a higher rating than I thought. I thought that she would definitely say, “You can’t do it at all and I won’t be talking about such things”.
“But, it doesn’t work at all for monsters who have exceeded a certain strength. I am a good example. Even if magic hits directly, I don’t receive any scar. Skin strengthened with magical power is more robust than bad armor.” Toururi
“…I guessed so. At first, there are techniques for such opponents, but because the preparation time is long, I can’t use it immediately. If Ruu is fighting in front, I would have enough time to prepare.” Tsuchio
“I guessed that was your evaluation. In the first place, direct attacks are far more efficient for opponents who are reinforced. In order to overcome the magic reinforcement, it is only necessary to make an attack with more magical power.” Toururi
“Even if you say such a thing, it is useless for me. I don’t know how I shall increase my ability in a battle.” Tsuchio
“I know, humans are poor. Enhance your magic, increase your power or think about ways to earn time. I’m sure you’re able to do it.” Toururi
Well, don’t. If I make a talisman from the new paper, I think that my power will also rise because it can save more magical power. It seems to be a way to earn time…when I support, it seems I can use it, so I should consider some. Well, I did not try the smoke screen trick with Toururi-san. It won’t work often, but I will be able to earn time.
“If I thought about a new way, will you have a mock battle with me again?” Tsuchio
“You can ask my older sister or Tyres.” Toururi
“No, only Toururi who I fought already can I ask for a fight once again. I’m on a sightseeing tour from now on, but it seems that we will come back to the castle several times. If you have time then, it would be nice.” Tsuchio
“…Well, when I’m frustrated from work again, I’ll do it once if I have time.” Toururi
I have the impression that Toururi-san is a strong opponent, so I’m glad to become her sandbag. Let’s make a new talisman on the basis of what was pointed out.
