Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 139


Chapter 139: Tyrannical Beyond Compare, Assassin Queen (II)

However, as his opponent had just surrendered, he couldn’t proceed with his attack. He was full of regret, regretting that he didn’t summon his mount. Yang Wenzhao secretly vowed that for the rest of the competition, he wouldn’t act proudly again, and definitely summon his mount and go all out. Looking at the scorched black traces on his body, he realized that his behaviour was similar to the one Han Yu showed previously.

“Yang Wenzhao versus Bai Xiaomo, the winner is Yang Wenzhao, he will enter the top eight.”

Together with the referee’s announcement, this first match concluded.

Despite the fact that the female summoner Bai Xiaomo lost, her crafty fighting method left a deep impression on everyone. Any perspicacious person could easily guess that Bai Xiaomo’s summons had very great control ability. If someone could get her as a squad member, no matter if it’s for group combat or duel situations, she would be one of the best members possible. More importantly, she was only at the fourth step! For her to be able to leave Yang Wenzhao, who reached the fifth step, in such a pitiful state, it was not hard to guess what would happen after she reaches the fifth step, how formidable she would become.

It was only the first match of the eight, but it shocked everyone to such an extent! The feelings of the competitors who couldn’t participate who were unwilling to accept these results weakened a lot. However, the next match left them somewhat disappointed.

The ones who had to go on stage for the second battle were precisely Li Xin and Long Haochen, sister and brother. Without even going on stage, Li XIn expressed to the referee her decision to concede.

This kind of situation was something extremely rare to see in the matches between the top 16 powerhouses. After all, reaching this stage was very hard, and each step forward could be said to promote one’s status in one’s future Demon Hunt Squad by a great extent. And still, when one’s strength had no way at all to match that of one’s opponent, they would generally put everything at stake to try to win over the opponent.

But it wasn’t forbidden to concede in these matches, so the referee could only declare Long Haochen the winner, letting him enter the top eight.

In regards to Li Xin’s decision to concede, Han Qian, on the platform, was quite satisfied. At least, she didn’t deplete Long Haochen’s strength; the following matches were, as previously, going to take place daily, so if one used a too huge amount of resources the day before, it would obviously have a bad influence on upcoming matches.

The fact that Li Xin conceded didn’t’ hamper the marvellous aspect of the competition of this day: all four of the following matches were brilliant and varied, where no one would rashly admit defeat before the final moment. As a result, the victorious party would have to pay a price for that. After all, for these competitors to have been able to enter this stage, the gap between their strength couldn’t be too wide.

“Cai’er, it should be your turn to go on stage.” Long Haochen nervously held Cai’er’s little hand.

Cai’er lightly shook her head, calmly telling him, “Nothing will happen to me.” Long Hao Chen thought about accompanying her even to go on stage, but was rejected by Cai’er. As her hand grasped her bamboo cane, she headed to the stadium alone.

Seeing the appearance of this blind girl Cai’er, the other competitors showed various reactions. They were separated into two categories: the first was naturally those who were extremely doubtful; how could a blind lady even reach the top 16? And the other ones were nervous and excited, because they had formerly witnessed her formidable strength. In particular, the assassins from the Assassin Temple were actually cheering loudly for her.

By the means of her tyrannical display during the qualifiers, Cai’er had already obtained the approval of all these people.

Walking into the field at a strolling pace, Cai’er slowly arrived. Her opponent was someone who had never run into her previously in the competition, so his look toward her was doubtful and uncomprehending.

Does this lady belong to the Assassin Temple?

Cai’er’s opponent was a youth roughly 20 years old. He had a medium build, and had a red staff in his hand. He was the second Grand Summoner of the fourth step who entered the top 16.

In the previous matches, the appearances of the Spiritual Temple were remarkable. Although Bai Xiaomo didn’t manage to win, she had become a very likely pick for the top challengers and even left Yang Wenzhao stuck in a dilemma. The other control-specialized summoner entered the top eight relatively easily, and now, the eyes were focused on the last disciple of this Spiritual Temple.

“Cai’er from the Assassin Temple will battle Fang Zhu from the Spiritual Temple. Because of the difference of vocations, the two parties will start at a distance of 40 meters, and four pillars will be raised on the ground. Both parties, be prepared.”

Together with this announcement from the referee, four thick pillar slowly rose from on the ground. Cai’er and the summoner Fang Zhu calmly drew back until they were at a distance of 40 meters.

In terms of nervousness, no one could surpass Long Haochen who was standing in the lounge. He nervously looked at the situation on stage, wishing that he could replace Cai’er to battle in her stead.

Looking at him, Li Xin couldn’t help but reveal a smile, as she said, “Little fool, don’t be so nervous. Be at ease, nothing will happen to her. As I saw it, Cai’er’s strength is so terrifying that I am afraid that there is no way to win against her, even for you. Just wait and see.”

“Okay.”, was Long Haochen’s reply, but in reality he didn’t even hear Li Xin’s words. In complete confusion out of concern for her, no matter what other people would say, the nervousness in his heart wouldn’t decrease the slightest bit. He only unceasingly thought, Cai’er cannot see! And in addition, she’s so weak. What if she ends up wounded?

Long Haochen had already made his resolve: if Cai’er were to be injured anyhow by her opponent, even if it was against the rules of the competition, he would immediately rush to her side to treat her. Silently, he already started to prepare a [Holy Mantle].

“Match start!” With this sound from the referee, the seventh of the eight matches started officially.

Although Fang Zhu had never seen Cai’er in combat, he didn’t underestimate his opponent the slightest bit just because she was blind. The fact he reached the fourth step wasn’t all about strength; there was no way it could be so simple. He was resolute, persistent, and prudent.

The staff in his hand shone in a reddish brown color, as he waved it forward. With a height of one meter, a big cyan-colored bird rose and flew in the air.

This wasn’t accomplished through a summoning incantation; from the looks of it, it seemed that being came out from the top of this summoner’s staff. It could be seen that this staff was at least a piece of equipment at the Spiritual Tier.

The blue bird soared in the air, flying at great speed in Cai’er’s direction as its body lit up with a faint blue light.

In the instant the referee declared the start of the match, Cai’er, with her hand grasping her bamboo cane, advanced forward, straight toward her opponent. Her speed wasn’t fast, and didn’t show any difference from when she was ordinarily walking. The bamboo cane lightly tapped on the ground, as she walked unhurriedly, with a reserved aura. It would almost appear like an ordinary blind girl that went for a walk.

On the ground, the bamboo cane made no sound, only leaving a simple trace where it passed.

After Fang Zhu made that blue bird appear, he immediately started to rapidly chant his next incantation. The only difference between summoners’ incantation and mages’ was that summoners’ incantation were frequently chanted in a faster speed. It was because their incantations were based on frequency, unlike mages’ incantations, which were based on tempo. A muffled vigorous voice eagerly chanted, as the light on his red staff became brighter and brighter, letting a monstrous aura unceasingly spread out from it.

Cai’er had only taken ten steps as this blue bird already arrived at the top of her head. Advancing towards Cai’er’s direction at great speed, it dove down and unfolded both its wings, letting out an ear-piercing hiss and two one meter wide [Wind Blades] aimed straight at Cai’er.

Cai’er’s pace as she walked forward didn’t change the slightest bit, unhurriedly strolling, just as before. In the lounge, Long Haochen almost cried out loudly.

From his eyes, these two [Wind Blades] were about to hit Cai’er’s body a split second later, as a strange situation occurred.

Cai’er seemed to have not done anything, but in this instant, her body turned into a blur, and instantly, those two [Wind Blades] passed through her body extremely naturally, smashing the ground behind her with a pupu sound and leaving four pits behinds.

Also at that moment, the bamboo cane in Cai’er’s hand was lifted up high, just like a lightning bolt, and let out an extremely cold and intense killing intent in a flash.

That blue bird was very small, and in an instant after Cai’er’s act, it could already feel the danger, rapidly batting its wings while performing a nimble dodging motion.

However, from Cai’er’s cane, three radiances were sent out, each of them extending until reaching a length of 10 meters.

Pu—-

As the bamboo cane tapped to ground, Cai’er kept moving forward at a strolling pace, as before. Reducing the distance between her and that summoner at every step. In her breath, there wasn’t the slightest change, despite the attack launched by that blue bird, making everything that just happened seem just like a mirage.

But was that really a mirage?

The blood of that blue bird dripped out as it was split into four equally divided parts as it splashed down and turned into dust.

When Cai’er had just raised her blue cane, it had not been able to evade her attack in the slightest.

Looking at Cai’er who was just hit by that [Wind Blade], Long Haochen cried out in surprise, as a screech came out from his throat. Separated from Cai’er by a distance of roughly twenty meters, Fang Zhu was still chanting at a rapid speed. In a flash, his pupils shrank to the size of a needle as his fast incantation was almost broken by the surprise he had when looking at this scene.

My Storm Bird was instantly killed, just like that? That was a magical beast of the fourth step! It should at least be able to hinder the opponent a little. However, from beginning to end, he didn’t have the slightest influence on Cai’er’s advance. With a glow from her bamboo cane, it was simply split in equal parts by Cai’er, just as a chef would do. As he was still reciting his incantation, he was broken into cold sweat by that fierce ultimate killing intent.

Immediately, he realized what kind of opponent he was currently facing. Even granted that she didn’t have sight, her tyrannical appearance had already let Fang Zhu experience a terrifying pressure unlike what he had ever felt before.

As before, Cai’er moved at a slow speed, but just like during the qualifiers, each of the steps she took forward increased the mental pressure exerted on Fang Zhu.

However, this Fang Zhu was also outstanding. Even in such a situation, he still completed his incantation without a hitch.

As he pointed his staff forward, a red brilliance came out, turning into a sparkling gate. Immediately, a loud roar sounded out from it. Then, a huge figure came out from that gate.

Magical beast of the sixth step, Gigantic Bear Vajra.

To a Grand Summoner of the fourth step, being able to summon a magical beast of the sixth step was already the highest feat possible. The fact he managed to accomplish it had to be related to his mental capacity and the equipment he carried. Even if this was the case, after he completed this summon, Fang Zhu’s face became completely pale, pale with a relieved feeling.

    Thank you~

    thanks!

  • Harrison Hee

    Best female character I’ve seen in a while.

    • Kaidus

      I wish she was our mc<3 I used like LHC but this fuker cant even respect Caiers strenght and fuking looks down on her way too much,fuker if u gonna be like dat atleast get stronger than her D:<

    • JZ

      Honestly, I don’t like her at all and I don’t like the MC as well. She went and stabbed someone just because he won a match against her boyfriend and seriously wounded someone because he/she won against her boyfriend’s sister. And the MC, for all his so called knightly characteristics, still hasn’t apologized to Yang Wenzhao. Yang Wenzhao is perhaps the best character so far in the series. He went light on MC and got rewarded for it by getting stabbed in the chest at the middle of night. His grandfather was actually so nice that he even helped the MC get a new weapon. Yang family might be some sort of noble family. On this other hand this girl and her boyfriend are nothing but pure trailer trash.

      • Harrison Hee

        Yang Wenzhao’s just a loser who gets his ego deflated from getting annihilated by one of the most powerful characters introduced in the series. He even falls down to Han Yu’s level and feels like attacking his opponent right after they admit defeat. I think that it was great that Cai’er wrecked him, it shows how practically unfeeling and inhuman she is, allowing her to be given great character development in the future, as Hao Chen continues to show her compassion and kindness. On the other hand, Yang Wenzhao almost feels like he’s going down the villain path, being corrupted by his rage and hubris. He seems to be falling into a downward spiral he can’t recover from.

        • JZ

          Yang Wenzhao didn’t never attacked his opponent after they were defeated. Those are stuff that only Cai’er did (after her boyfriend was defeated). Nobody else stooped to that level. In fact his grandfather helped the person the kid who was responsible for it

          • Harrison Hee

            He didn’t attack, but he definitely wanted to. From Cai’er’s perspective, she did what she had to do. She’s been trained her whole life to kill targets, and in fact, I’m more surprised that she didn’t actually kill him. It shows more character that she graciously let him live. What she did wasn’t low in her eyes, it was the justice that she was raised upon. That’s why she’s a good character who will be fleshed out in a good way in this series, unlike Yang Wenzhao who just gets more bitter and angry at the world at his terrible luck.

          • JZ

            Really??? Attacking your allies is good?? Since when?? At this rate the demons need not even fight the humans. At the moment both LHC and Caier are very weak characters with strong potential. But surprisingly none of the strong accomplished ones (like the Han Yu’s grandpa or Yang Wenzhao’s grandpa) throws their weights around unlike these kids with zero accomplishments. Especially Han Yu’s grandpa took the initiative in disciplining his own grand child for a much lighter crime while the snotty assassins let the girl off for a much more severe crime.

          • Harrison Hee

            From Cai’er’s point of view, why is Yang Wenzhao her ally? The only friend she’s ever had, Long Hao Chen, was put in critical condition after fighting him, making it Wenzhao’s fault from her position. Why would she put the blame on him? Maybe because she’s angsty and emotional…like a regular 14 year old kid is. The reason why the adults don’t throw their weight around is because they’re…adults. The age gap between Cai’er and Hao Chen and their peers is pretty ridiculous if you put it into perspective, and shows off both how mature they are in terms of skill, and how immature they are in terms of experience. This lack of experience is being shown throughout the series and is compared against those older than them, who can be much more immature than these two at any point in time (e.g. Ha Yu and Gui Wu). As the series progresses, they will begin to outclass their elders in terms of maturity and power, which is why they’re shown as rather naive and immature at the moment.

  • Azuka

    Thanks for the chapter

  • RobertTheAddled

    Love the chapter – I really wonder where the story will go from here.
    Most novels have some clue to path – but this has me stumped other than getting stronger.

    • Moissonneur66

      So the mention of the war with the demons has gone completely over your head ehy? Isn’t it pretty clear that they are in a tournament to become members of a demon hunt squad? what more do you need bro?

      • RobertTheAddled

        Yes – but I also enjoy the sub-plots and character development.
        THAT is what I’m trying to work out.
        My WAG on overall plot has something to do w/ he goes and either rescues or avenges his father, then goes on to either exterminate or forge a lasting peace treaty (or destroys however they came to this world and/or whatever drove them there).

  • Captain Facts

    “This much, is still not enough.”

  • SaberWolf

    Thanks for the chapter, Totobro!

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • deadman1975

    Awesome.. Thanks so much Totobro!! Wpnder what kind of reaction LHC is going to have after the match?

  • Red_Autumn

    This chapter was awesome thanks toto for it.

    Cai’er is a really scary offensive presence in the fact that she can change her speed at a split of a second and can not be noticed either. Also how calm she is and how she conserves her energy until the decisive attacks she does also shows how scary and awesome she is, which is why I like her.
    LHC is really the blind one into thinking Cai’er is not strong, I understand his feelings for her but that’s just a little sad I guess for him to be that fearful for her well being that she can’t handle herself, but that’s what makes him so pure and well liked haha

  • jacobpaige

    Too early to relax dude 😉

    I wonder how long it will be till LHC stops looking down on her ability to protect herself?

    • Falinmer

      Even if he stops looking down on her strength, he’ll still worry about her. Even if she was infinitely stronger than him, he would probably worry since he loves her. He doesn’t want her to face any danger and even if she was stronger he’d want to put himself between her and the threat.

      • Catrules

        Dat is so faggot like of him…why does he need to be so sexist?? let her protect him since hes a weak bitch D:<

        • Falinmer

          I don’t think it has anything to do with her being a woman, after all, he’s fine with his sister fighting (was she Li or Lin?). I’m pretty sure it’s just because he loves her and doesn’t want her to face any harm.

    thanks for the chapter !

    Thank you so much for the translations <3

    Gigantic bear vajra vs Chai’er
    Thx for the chapter toto.

  • Verslint

    Thanks for the chapter! Poor Long Haochen is about to have a heart attack (^^,)

    • The Dragon King

      Only currently. Her original inner spirit power (or whatever it’s called) was 93 and LCH was 97 hers only got that way after absorbing a powerful spiritual stove of the previous assassin 90+ so if LCH absorbs a spirit stove of that power or maybe once he fully asorbs his new sword he will get over a 100 and be an op king

      • The Dragon King

        Sorry wrong post I meant to do this to the one above.

  • Alexandre Leguillon

    too bad that cai’er is stronger than LHC…..

    • The Dragon King

      Only currently.

      • robert irwin

        She will probably always be stronger then him attack wise. It is what the assassins are know for well knights are for blocking/ playing the tank. We will see though

        • Muzik Saint

          Lol you do realize there are two types of knights right. I don’t recall retribution knights being known for defending. Also Assasins aren’t stronger then Knights offensively it only seems that way because Caier is OP.

          • Hurges GhX

            his teacher is a tank if i remeber right.

        • The Dragon King

          No that’s only guardian Knights. Have u been paying attention there are 2 classes guardian and retribution. Guardian is tank retribution is dual wielding damage. LCH is both meaning he can take a lot of hits and dish some out that have a lot of power; he is both big damage and tank, so when his inner spirit surpass a 100 through absorbing a powerful spiritual stove or maybe fully absorbing his new sword (the name escapes me I think it was blue hiscubus of holy light) he will probably be op as f and definently stronger than cai er

    • She have 2 spiritual stove, that make her a little stronger than haochen. No said that she train longer than haochen too.

      • Ravenous Basilisk

        Plus, she directly being nurtured by the temple, so she’s bound to be ahead of LHC, at least for some time =D

  • Avarrencus

    Thanks for the chapter~

  • Zen

    lol sheesh what an mcp that haochen, looking down on people pfft

    • Fenris

      i know right ? he’s so dense :X does he think that she made it to top 16 by chance or something ?

  • Ronald Wood

    Bro don’t understand he trash compared to her

  • Dkeleek

    Seriously what’s with everyone conceding matches because they don’t want to fight friends or ’cause they think they have no chance? at the very least have a friendly match, try some new strategy and stuff, get to know each other’s current fighting style and any new tricks they might’ve learned, you know, the stuff rivals do. I find this surrendering is rather narrow-minded and limits their growth…

  • KenKen

    Sigh I can’t believe Hao Chen still think Cai’er so weak….just a weak blind girl who need protection……even tho she admit she is the assassin #1 and she also made it to top 16. To me I personally even think she is even more OP than Hao Chen himself.

  • TheEKPrimo

    Ok his being stupid with how he sees her, from the information he got about her he should by now understand that she isent a little frail weak girl that needs protection. Especially when they keep on saying how smart he is, so how can he be so stupid now…

  • Stark

    Did he think that Cai Er made it to the top 16 with her sex appeal? seriously use your brain LHC god damn.
