Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 307

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 307: Competition (I)

What were Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon?!. They were powerhouses among the Berserk Demons, and their difference when compared to the basic Berserk Demons, was that they reached the sixth step of cultivation. They were a rare type of demon, only using physical attacks to battle.

The words Lin Xin used to describe Sima Xian would be comparatively more suited to describe Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon, their head being totally filled with muscles. However, no matter how distinct the weaknesses of a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon could be, namely that they weren’t capable of long ranged attacks or magic attacks, they were in the end powerhouses of the sixth step! How could they not have some advantages?

Their tyrannical build made up for the fact they didn’t have any control over elements, and their powerful physical attacks would sweep everything before them. Even amongst the other demons of the sixth step, none would be willing to fight head-on against a madman such as a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon. Once it started to attack, a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon would not stop until death, and it would do so against humans as well as demons.

To a human mage at whom a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon charged, seeing his malevolent face draw closer and both his spiked arms point at his neck with a cruel roar, not peeing himself or defecating unconsciously was already incredible.

That water elemental mage was very scared, falling on the ground, totally blank.

Chen Ying’er curled her lip from afar, “What a waste! If I had known, I wouldn’t have used a magical crystal of the sixth step. What a waste.” But before her words were spoken, her voice instantly became hurried and sharp, “Eh! Don’t intervene, referee, that’s not a demon…”

A Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon appearing in the headquarters of the Priest Temple, what kind of situation was that? The appearance of that Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon was just too sudden, so much that even the referee who was at the eighth step didn’t spare a thought before arriving in front of the Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon in a flash, punching at him.

The reaction of the Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon wasn’t slow either, stamping on the ground and immediately lowering himself down. And at the same time the knight’s toes came in contact with the ground, this massive body was sent flying, but in this process of flying, the Demon Hunters observing the battle all saw clearly his body shrink down suddenly, and at the time it fell to the ground, it had already reverted back to its previous shape of a little pig, to which direction Chen Ying’er rushed out in total alarm.

That was a powerhouse of the eighth step! Against that, even in a transformed state of Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon, the little plump McDull was no match. Originally, he was unsatisfied of those harsh days of training in the Tower of Eternity, being abused every day so painfully, but now, he only felt deep gratitude for the increase of his battle skills due to having been beaten up so much by the tyrannical red skeleton. Of course, only after being completely wounded every day that this pig learned through experience and danger.

The referee was at that time really shocked. Even with his cultivation at the eighth step, it was the first time he had seen something like this. Hurriedly, he walked toward Chen Ying’er, planning to ask about that.

Without even letting the referee the time to open his mouth, Chen Ying’er was already like a little hot pepper, “What were you just doing? Without any observation, you just intervene like that? How are you going to compensate if you have wounded my McDull? Do you know how important he is to me? He’s my contracted summoned beast! If you hadn’t any knowledge I would understand, but haven’t you seen magical beast that could transform before? Could you be any more of an idiot?! Hmpf!”

Having lost herself in swears, Chen Ying’er furiously flung back her twintails, directly heading back to the lounge. Her voice being so loud, every Demon Hunter in the lounge heard her clearly. Hoots of laughter immediately burst out. This girl was really something, for her to even dare to swear at a Saint Knight of the eighth step; that was really an exceptional sight.

The referee gloomily let out the thoughts, who asked him to transform into a demon? And I have really never seen any magical beast that could transform!

Han Qian yelled as he covered his face, trying to resist the urge to laugh with great difficulty, “Okay, let the tournament continue. The winner of this battle is the 36th contestant.”

Who was Chen Ying’er? She was the granddaughter of granny Sanshui. And Sanshui’s temperament even terrified Ying Suifeng and himself. Being the granddaughter to whom she taught personally, it would have been strange if she had a good temperament.

After sitting down anew, Han Qian gave a glance at Long Haochen’s direction without batting an eyelid, thinking to himself, Looks like the companions by the side of this kid, Haochen, are also becoming stronger.

Yang Wenzhao’s mouth was wide agape, completely blank, How could Ying’er become so strong? And was that her contracted beast? So now, she’s not the same unreliable summoner as in the past anymore? For a moment, his mind was in complete chaos.

The competition went on, and although the previous battle was truly a marvel, this competition made everyone prioritize their personal benefit, fighting with their full strength, single-mindedly. Thus everyone was single-mindedly devoted to his own goals, not paying much attention to others. Furthermore, although that little pig McDull’s ability to transform into a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon was incredible, the flaws of a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon were pretty obvious. This kind of demon who was also unequipped, was pretty easy to deal with with enough preparation.

The second member of the 21st general grade Demon Hunt Squad to appear on stage was Lin Xin. Somehow, it turned out that the two in the team with the weakest battle strength were the first to go on stage.

Lifting his Fire Cloud Staff, Lin Xin flung his own hair elegantly, showing a smile to the nearby Li Xin before heading to the field in large steps.

Li Xin naturally came to such an important competition, but of course, she didn’t give herself much pressure. After all, she had just recently broken through the fifth step, and although she managed to increase her spiritual energy above 3,000 by relying on the Holy Spirit Pill, it was obviously not realistic for her to expect herself to win in such a competition.

Seeing Lin Xin going on stage against all expectations, Li Xin couldn’t help but feel startled, and a look of anxiety appeared on her charming face. Rapidly coming to the side of the 21st general grade Demon Hunt Squad, she sat near Long Haochen.

“Little brother, how could he participate in the competition too? Isn’t he not even capable of attacking!?” Li Xin asked discreetly.

Long Haochen chuckled to her, replying, “There’s nothing to worry about, sis. Even if he’s unable to win, he won’t lose his match either. Just look at him. Lin Xin’s recent progress isn’t small. He said that he had to cultivate harder if he wanted to deserve being with you.”

“Peh, so even you are starting to make fun of your big sister? What is about deserving it or not…” Lin Xin blushed, but still couldn’t help but look at Lin Xin on stage.

Lin Xin had really good potential as a yielding character. In front of Li Xin, he appeared lovably honest, and even hard-working to achieve his goals. Frequently offering little gifts to Li Xin, he made her resign with his persistence, and gradually gained a certain place in her heart.

At the very beginning, Li Xin mainly sympathized because of Lin Xin’s miserable past, but as time passed by, she discovered that Lin Xin was actually pretty decent. Although this guy was somewhat narcissistic, his looks were still good. And furthermore, his talent in the field of alchemy was indeed enough for him to be called a genius. But more importantly, this guy was easy to bully.

At this time, Lin Xin was already in the middle of the field, and his opponent was a warrior, but it was a rather thin-looking one. Clad in simple leather armor, he had a little battle axe in each hand. Clearly, this warrior was specialized in speed.

Mage against warrior would start with a distance of thirty meters separating both parties. With a call from the referee, the match started, and right off the bat, that warrior launched a charge at Lin Xin’s direction.

Lin Xin’s luck was clearly not as good as it was for Chen Ying’er, his opponent being an authentic powerhouse of the sixth step. A pair of modest-sized green spiritual wings were released on his back. They weren’t used for flight, but pushed him forward like a green ray of light rushing towards Lin Xin.

A dense red light came out instantly from Lin Xin’s body, and without any incantation from him, his Fire Cloud Crystal was directly inserted in the ground, and red light was released from his staff and himself. From it, the intense and rich fluctuations of spiritual energy coming out gave off an oppressive feeling. But no one could predict what kind of spell this guy was going to use.

The warrior specialized in wind element, and had the boost from a pair of wind elemental wings, so one could well imagine the level his speed reached. Relying on his cultivation at the sixth step, he wasn’t even visible to Lin Xin’s eyes, and with this extreme speed, just rushed vigorously towards Lin Xin’s.

Speed and force were directly related, thus the warrior was already prepared to respond to Lin Xin’s spell. His dual axes had a magic break effect, and were filled with a pretty good amount of spiritual energy. At that moment, the dual axes already became green-colored because of the concentration of spiritual energy within, and his current thought was, just which place should he attack Lin Xin, after all this wasn’t a fight to death, and he couldn’t cripple the opponent.

However, what astounded everyone was that Lin Xin didn’t do anything as his opponent charged at him, just looking helplessly at the other party.

Of course, that wind element warrior’s speed was extremely fast, and it took only a few blinks of an eye for him to arrive in front of Lin Xin, waving his pair of battle axes.

A victorious smile was already drawn on the face of that wind element warrior. To a mage confronting a warrior, when the opponent was in close range, the match was fated to be a loss. However, his opponent wasn’t careless, still storing up spiritual energy in preparation for Lin Xin’s possible counterattack.

Just when the two parties were only at two meters from each other, Lin Xin finally showed some reaction, letting out an intense scarlet glow spreading out around him.

It was Resisting Ring of Fire, a low level technique without any offensive power, its main effect was to push back the opponent, to avoid the opponent’s attacks. This was also one of the self-defense techniques used by fire mages.

Seeing the opponent finally launch a mere Resisting Ring of Fire after such a long time, the wind warrior finally couldn’t help but let out a smile. Trying to stop me by relying on Resisting Ring of Fire? Brazenly moving the battle-ax in his left hand forward, he planned on using the magic breaking effects of his battle-ax, breaking through this Resisting Ring of Fire open would be very extremely easy.

But would it really end this way?

  • Andrew L

    Thanks for the chapter! 😀

  • Baem LN

    Thanks for that chapter, Totobro and sponsors!

    I really want to see Han Yu fight against LHC in this tournament. They can bring each other potentials’ out in the open.

    And I predict that LHC will fight the 8th GG DHS captain for the final fight of this tournament! Popcorns!!!

    • Luke Confidential

      Sure. My own dream/goal is to see Sima Xian crush [not literally… well… literally as the technique but not as in disabling/destroying] Yang Wenzhao.

      • Robin

        This would be funny but hilarious. I doubt that they will denounce him like that again. But on a second thought… maybe. 😉

        • Luke Confidential

          Why wouldn’t they? A couple months ago he was ridiculously astonished that LHC was peak 5th step. Sima IS peak 5th step. At most Yang Wenzhao could have equal cultivation but inferior training.

          Skeletor Sensei is an unfair advantage.

          • Robin

            Yeah, levelwise Sima should be his equal or above and he has surely a lot more combat experience against powerful enemies like the skeleton.
            I more thought that he was already significantly and amply denounced by losing to Haochen strengthwise AND as a commaner. Haochen left him in the dust and now his team members, even the weakest, are powering up on a wondrous speed. It would be really humiliating if Sima would crush him in front of all, especially Chen Yin’er. He will already feel crushed seeing Haochen’s definitely triumphant fight and Cai’er’s advancement.

          • Luke Confidential

            You do raise an interesting alternative.

            Now I’m torn between wanting to see him pummeled by a priest or beaten by his betrothed.

            EDIT: Sima really does wreck conventions though. As a Smash Priest he’s got TWO win condition options. Smash the enemy into submission OR withstand X period of time.

          • Robin

            NOTHING would be more humiliating than being beaten by his unwilling fiancee, so this is the least likely turn, although really tempting.
            And being fair, she doesn’t really stand a chance against him unless he is too squeamish to really fight her. And with Spiritual Stoves at stake, he will fight seriously or be damned by his team.

          • Luke Confidential

            You mean to say that she doesn’t USUALLY stand a chance against him.

            She’s always got roulette as an option.

          • Robin

            Yeah, true. But still, the chances are really slim.

          • Luke Confidential

            Plus you can’t tell me Golden Birdy Demon McDull wouldn’t give Wenzhao a significant fight, even with his Starlight Unicorn.

            Actually… an Aerial Battle between those two would be pretty awesome if natural wing flight is allowed [I’m not quite sure on the rules whether it’s all flight prohibited or condensed spiritual wing flight.]

            EDIT: OHHHH or what if Ying-Er’s Creature Summoning Gate called forth a moderately potent mount-style beast and McDull went Fiend Lord to cooperate with it.

          • Robin

            I understood it as all flying, but you are right. There was no mentioning the mounts. Still, it is likely that this counts in as well.
            Mh, yeah, this should be a good opponent. Ah, I would like to see the audience’s reaction if Mc Dull turns into a black dragon, even only as an illusion. ^^

          • Luke Confidential

            Fiendlord McDull on a 6th stage Pegasus or Rappidash…I mean Rose Unicorn or Sleipneir or Draconsteed or Warg.

            Think about that =D

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Not to trample your dreams… ,but we will have to wait a bit more for Fiend Lord, Bloodthirsty Beta, Scarlet Berserker Demon, the 7th step Demon Eagle, or Golden Birdy demon. Mcdull is still at 7th rank Magical Beast and can imitate up to max 6th step demons or 7th rank magical beasts. I will say I am right there with you looking forward to a freaking Fiend Lord riding a Unicorn. That just contains so much weird and perplexing awesomeness…. The beauty lay in the sheer opposites coming together, hehe…

            I would say that I have my doubts if Yang Wenzhao could force himself to go all out versus Ying’er. He does seem to honestly love her. On the other hand it would also be pretty damn embarrassing to lose to a girl this much younger than you. Add in the pressure of getting a Spiritual Stove and getting a chance to increase his squads power… it is hard to say how this equation would work out. I definitely can’t see him conceding but being able to display his full might also seems completely unlikely.

            I would say one thing we shouldn’t forget when it comes to Yang Whenzhao is that he does have two Spiritual Stoves already. He started the Demon Hunt Selection with one and then got a second one for being second place. So as far as power goes he has plenty to somewhat off set the experience and gear disadvantage he would have fighting LHC’s team. Still would freaking love watching him get his butt kicked by Han Yu, Sima Xian, or especially Ying’er. LHC or Cai’er versus him would just be a joke at this point.

          • Luke Confidential

            My mistake. When I said ‘Golden Birdy Demon’ I meant Grand Birdy Demon.

            Same goes for ‘Fiend Lord’ when I actually meant to say Fiend Commander.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Just as good. Still freaking would love watching a fiend mounting a Pegasus, hehe.

          • Luke Confidential

            Whatever floats your boat dude. I’ve never been interested in that sort of porn.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Damn it we have devolved back into the PG13 and up club again…

          • Psyside

            Id say Yang Whenzhao will let her win but she will think its lame so i think cos of that they will fight.
            But my ultimate prediction for that is at some point he will save her and she will start to like him or something like that. There will need to be a triger where they end up togeather
            The way i see it.
            Lin Xin-Li XIn
            Sima Xian-Wang Yuanyuan
            Yang Whenzhao-Ying’er
            Han Yu????
            Poor Han yu all alone 🙁

          • Luke Confidential

            Psh, no. Ying-er belongs to Austin Griffon.

          • Psyside

            Thats some werd hentai that id kinda wanna see

    • Daene Kendrick

      My way of thinking is that the first round of fights for LHC’s squad will all end in victories remember there are i think 100 participants so there will be 50 fights then 25 fights, I dont see us having atleast in the first round any of them fighting teammates. Nor do I see LHC having any rematches from previous fights.
      In the second round I think Han Yu and Yang Wenzou will fight and Yang will realize that LHC saved him from a unknown threat in Han Yu. LHC will probably be thought of as a fluke until his first fight and then will be considered a true threat by the other DHS powerhouses and any of the new generation of Hunters would probably forfit if put against Cai’er or LHC. I hope though that LHC and Cai’er arent put against each other because it will be hard to read. McPiggy needs to get ready to find some stoves lol. Use that other inante ability finally lol.

      • Baem LN

        Han Yu maybe will fight Yang Wenzhao or Duan Yi. Yang Wenzhao has 2 stoves, Starsea and unknown stoves. So, Han Yu maybe will lose to Wenzhao even if he already reaches peak-rank of fifth-step. He will have a better chance of winning fighting against Duan Yi, I think.

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Psyside

    Fire skeleton? WTF

    • Majk

      Its form the curse of fire that he used before. I think that it’s the supplementary technique of his staff.

      • Robin

        The curse, yeah, but the skeleton surprised me as well.

        • Majk

          Honestly for a sec there I was also suprised and imagined the Red Skeleton Sensei was being summoned by him but that would be a bit much. He could wipe the flor with everyone includinghis own squad if that would have been possible (Im wondering if the shape cahnged form just an immense skull of flames into a skelleton becasue of the big immpresion that Red Skeli Sensei left on him.After all he can change its shape).
          It would be awesome if after defeating the red skelton he would become something like a contracted protector for LHC. You know like a present form Elux for all the hard work thus allowing LHC wo summon him anytime he wants.
          Now that I wrote this I just can’t stop thinking about LHC standing in the middle of the demon army and suddenly summoning 7 special skeletons and everyone would be stranger then the other plus they would all poses skills from the forgotten era nad just rip the demon army to shreds.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I just thought to myself what would happen if LHC can summon 7 special Skeletons and they can be like his own skeletal power rangers squad!

            It is making me so happy thinking about how they would start fighting the Demon God Emperor in his human form until they push him into a corner. Then the Demon God Emperor transforms into dragon form! After that the Power Skeleton Rangers Squad combine to make a giant Mechazord Skeleton! God i really should try to learn to draw just so I can try and make a picture of that… mwhahahahahaahaha…..

  • AnarchyDev

    The cliffhangers are going on a run…

    Thanks for the chapter translation and the sponsor.

  • felix

    Thanks for the chapter! 🙂

  • Robin

    This tournament is not only the best chance for them to try out their new abilities, but also to show off in front of so many powerhouses. Different from a situation on the battlefield where everyone is occupied in some way, the other DHS members caqn be good spectators and marvel their strength.

    I laughed so hard when McDull won and the referee attacked him. This moment sinply was too funny! Poor guy ^_^

    • Luke Confidential

      There should be some form of compensation for that attack. A few hundred contribution points if nothing else.

      • Robin

        Hahaha, there really should be a compensation. At least a priest should heal him since she is required to compete further and the referee just diminished her fighting strength by his rash behavior.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      What I like about this is it will allow LHC to show that his previous performance wasn’t a fluke. All the higher ups also have seen him and Cai’er so they will be especially watching those two’s performances.

      I think the Demon Hunt Squads members might be a little too distracted this first round worrying about themselves. Give it a few rounds as people start falling out they will stop being so self absorbed. The true depth of both Yin’er and Lin Xin still hasn’t even touched the surface yet. I mean Lin Xin used two spells and everyone thinks Yin’Er’s piggies ability is to change into a Bloodthirsty Beserker… hehehehehe. Give it a few rounds and people will be forced to know LHC’s teams wins are no flukes.

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you for the chapter!

  • Zeth

    Thank you!

  • Luke Confidential

    In a future match [ideally against Yang Wenzhao or possibly a 6th stepper] I want to see Ying-Er pull out a moderately powerful mount style beast and have McDull go Fiend Lord to cooperate with it.

    Picture it- Fiendlord McDull on a 6th rank Pegasus or Rapidash…I mean Rose Unicorn… or Sleipneir or Draconsteed or Warg.

    • Evilage

      Rapidash, lol
      or imagine McDull as a Demon god
      that would be awesome

      • Luke Confidential

        At this point the closest he can come to a Demon god is an illusion and even that might get him killed by the staff here in this tournament xD.

  • Majk

    I love that Lin Xin is wining the heart of Li Xin (their names are driving me crazy with how similar they are) by talking to her and giving her gifts. The perfect Dating Sim strat to get the girl you want.

    • Evilage

      “Dating Sim strat” if only it works in real life

    • JoaryTheRedPanda

      its Oscar x Rongrong all over again

  • Evilage

    “Peh, so even you are starting to make fun of you big sister? What is about deserving it or not…”
    Fun of your* big sister( its a bit annoying when left like that sorry)

    I’ve been wondering if lin xin unable to use offensive magic cant he just use a lot of support or body enhancement magic and fight like a guy? there should be more than one type of magicians right? Cant he be like sima? I mean yes he does have a weak body but that can be changed with a little exercise and eating

    • Robin

      I like this one more: She was the granddaughter of grammy Sanshui.


      • Jonathan Hurd

        That is less annoying and more funny, lol. Especially thinking about someone calling Sanshui that to her face….

        • Robin

          That’s why I find it so funny. 😉

  • ZaX

    Lin Xin getting so crafty. Thanks for the chapter

  • lordcattank

    thank you very much for the chapter

  • RedDragonX

    Thanks for the chapter!
