Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 321

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 321:Three Spiritual Stoves (II)

Just from the way he responded to Long Haochen’s fatal blow, it could be seen that Ah’Bao’s strength indeed exceeded the strength of that young Fiend Shen Can by far. The key point to that difference was in fact his external spiritual energy exceeding 20,000 units.

It was the first time Long Haochen became aware of how terrifying external spiritual energy could become after reaching a certain level.

However, his attack didn’t stop at that. As Long Haochen let out a mouthful of blood, a resonant dragon cry shot up from him. Although Asura Thrust had been deflected, Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light instantly turned into two mini dragons of light and rain, which went straight at the opponent.

Long Haochen’s way of thinking was simple; facing such a powerful opponent, he couldn’t possibly win only by going all out. It would just be a matter of time before the opponent would kill him. His only choice was to rely on burst attacks with instant destructive power great enough to overpower him. Therefore, he used the entirety of his techniques, and aimed at least at wounding the opponent seriously.

Inside of the Illusory Paradise, the recovery speed of Long Haochen’s spiritual energy was severalfold faster than anyone else’s. Even compared to this Ah’Bao, Long Haochen was confident that his recovery of spiritual energy was greater. Under such circumstances, he was the least afraid of fighting without reservations. If he could wound Ah’Bao, by proceeding with a series of attacks, he would have a chance.

Ah’Bao naturally didn’t expect Long Haochen to actually still have tricks up his sleeve. And especially not that they would be so powerful.

Long Haochen spouted another mouthful of blood, not because of the wounds from Ah’Bao’s attacks, but because of having chained all his most powerful attacks consecutively. His energy channels were under heavy stress, causing him to splurt out his own blood unconsciously. But even under these circumstances, the Dual Dragons of Light and Rain were still released successfully.

With violent bang sounds, Ah’Bao coughed once again. His body was sent flying by the attack, two blue and golden little dragons unwaveringly winding around his body.

Long Haochen stood straight in his original place. Not giving himself any time to recover, a golden fog of light ascended from his body in a flash. It was Storing Power.

His total amount of internal spiritual energy was around six thousand, but after this combo of three consecutive attacks, he had already consumed over five thousand units. That was to say, his remaining spiritual energy was far from enough for a second Asura Thrust.

However, here in the Illusory Paradise, with the help of the Light Elemental Fairy Yating, Long Haochen managed to stubbornly release a second Asura Thrust.

Bright Discipline already took over the position of Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light, and Long Haochen couldn’t help but splurt out another mouthful of blood, because he already used his Storing Power’s ability to its peak. In the air, the golden fog was flocking outright, not restoring his spiritual energy, but entering directly into him to become a part of the Asura Thrust together with the stored energy.

This guy is a madman! That was Ah’Bao’s current thought.

Since the launch of Long Haochen’s first Asura Strike, his combination of attacks was chained up without the slightest pause, reaching the limit of his own body’s capacity. Not giving himself the slightest second to merely gasp for breath, it could be said that this Dual Dragon of Light and Rain was unleashed by going over the limits of his own body. This even caused him to injure his own body, and the overdraft of his body from this tyrannical fighting style was a burden the Soul Linking Chains were not even able to share among his teammates.

Not only that, but a red radiance appeared at that time on Ah’Bao’s body, it was the Lock ability. Then a similarly red glow appeared around Long Haochen’s body as he launched the ability Sacrifice.

He was going over his limits, as if his life depended on it! But this was also the best timing he could choose to do that.

Even considering Ah’Bao’s strength, he couldn’t help but feel somewhat afraid of Long Haochen’s act of not holding back at any cost. Such a madman that didn’t even consider any aftereffects of the attack would very possibly hurt him seriously.

At this time, Ah’Bao didn’t show any more reversation. An oppressive force full of an antique aura was released from his body, and his originally black spiritual energy turned a dark purple color. Even his eyes became completely purple.

A pair of black dragon wings unfolded on his back, and his white skin was covered with fine deep purple dragon scales. Struggling to get free, his both arms broke past the binding of the Dual Dragon of Light and Rain ruthlessly.

Affected by his impulse, Long Haochen’s stored Asura Thrust seemed to take only a split second to be launched.

An ear-piercing hissing sound spread to the surroundings, causing violent twists in the air, and under the effects of the ability of Sacrifice, Long Haochen’s attack directly cut through the air. Strangely enough, the surroundings of his body seemed devoid of fluctuations of spiritual energy. But all of this was only the beginning, before a very weird scene emerged.

All this concentration of spiritual energy was gathered in one point.

Ah’Bao’s grave expression became all the more unsightly. With a wave of his right hand, a thin sword appeared. Thrusting its sharp end forward, he directly aimed it against Long Haochen’s Asura Thrust.


After a deafening exploding sound filled the air, Ah’Bao coughed hard, finally spouting a mouthful of purple blood himself. His entire body, completely glowing purple, was immediately pushed back a distance of more than ten meters by Long Haochen’s attack. The thin sword in his hand shattered into small pieces, unexpectedly reduced to nothing.

However, after completing this attack, Long Haochen also fell to the ground, gasping desperately for breath. In his mouth was already a Great Spiritual Recovery Pill, as his whole imposing aura collapsed at an astonishing speed.

Ah’Bao’s eyes were igniting with raging flames. Wounded. He had actually been wounded twice in succession by this human far from being his equal in strength! Since that was a madman, then he should just be left to meet a mad death.

Ah’Bao’s body abruptly became more robust, both of his arms turning into dragon claws and a series of purple blackish bolts of lightning started hovering around his body.

However, an incomparably cold killing intent instantly filled the air right at that moment, and all the surroundings became dark black. It seemed that right at this time, the Illusory Paradise turned entirely grey.

A black silhouette appeared noiselessly next to Long Haochen, silently gazing at the nearby Ah’Bao. Her left hand raising unhurriedly, an immense grey luster gradually took shape at her back. As it formed the shape of a sword, the frantic killing intent reached its peak.

“Perhaps I am unable to defeat you, but I can drag you to the other world with me.” Cai’er’s cold voice reverberated in the air. She hadn’t given Long Haochen a mere look, but her killing intent still reached its supreme limit.

The killing intent bursting out from the Spiritual Stove of Samsara and the Dagger of Samsara gave a terrifying feeling of total destruction. Even Long Haochen distinctly felt that a change seemed to have occurred on the Spiritual Stove of Samsara, whose killing intent was even more substantial than in the past.

The killing intent from her Spiritual Stove was usually dispersing in all four directions, but now it was locked entirely on Ah’Bao’s body.

“Brother Bao, be careful, that’s the Spiritual Stove of Samsara and the Dagger of Samsara.” Yue Ye’s alarmed cry resounded. Immediately afterwards, both Leng Xiao, Yue Ye, as well as the other two demon powerhouses swiftly appeared at Ah’Bao’s back.

Among those four was the previously proud orange clad demon, who looked severely beaten, and had apparently suffered serious injuries. The other one who directly appeared at Ah’Bao’s back was the second ranked among the ten demons that came to the Illusory Paradise. A young man clad in a purple robe. He was the one that intervened to kill the mage Demon Hunter, narrowly gaining control over the battlefield.

At the same time Cai’er appeared, the members of the 21st Demon Hunt Squad appeared in succession at Long Haochen’s back, and stood together with Zhang Fangfang..

That was to say that the other warrior Demon Hunter had also died from the injuries he had received during the previous battle.

The battle between Long Haochen and Ah’Bao had been so intense in the use of formidable spiritual energy that everyone from the demon side had naturally sensed it. And it was the same for Cai’er and the others.

The members of the 21st Demon Hunt Squad had arrived in time, heavily injuring the orange mage while turning back the tide of the battle. By the means of their top level coordination, Zhang Fangfang had temporarily taken Long Haochen’s usual duties, and together they had forced the enemy back. Now, they stood shoulder to shoulder, opposing Ah’Bao here.

In terms of the overall situation, the members of the 21st general grade Demon Hunt Squad were still better off. Only Long Haochen was completely exhausted, after facing his opponent who turned out to be quite a big-shot.

But the same didn’t hold true for the demons. They all understood how powerful Ah’Bao was, and yet, he had been wounded by Long Haochen.

Yue Ye’s shock was naturally the greatest. She knew Ah’Bao since young, and if she had to pick someone as a target of admiration among the younger generation, that would definitely be Ah’Bao.

Furthermore, she also clearly understood Long Haochen’s level of cultivation, and to her, these two were impossible to compare at any point.

However, this very situation was entirely different from what she had imagined.

Although Long Haochen was totally worn up, Ah’Bao had also sustained injuries, and they were caused by Long Haochen’s attacks? And in a one versus one fight?

In terms of numbers, Long Haochen’s group had eight members, whereas the demon group numbered only five, including a seriously injured person. Ah’Bao had also suffered severe injuries, but as a whole, the gap between the two sides wasn’t so large anymore, though the demon side likely had the upper hand.

Ah’Bao’s blank look gazed fixedly at the black wings spreading from Cai’er’s back. Seeing the black wings expanding ominously, and sensing the killing intent that could burst out at anytime, his eyes gradually narrowed and his dragon claws retracted with cracking sounds.

“Let’s leave.” Ah’Bao ordered indifferently.

“Brother Bao!” Leng Xiao called out in resignation.

Ah’Bao coldly swept her a glance, lightly unfolding the wings on his back and sweeping them close to the ground.

The others didn’t dare say anything further, and Yue Ye gave Long Haochen and Cai’er a profound glance before rapidly following Ah’Bao, leaving quickly.

The killing intent dispersed slowly, and Long Haochen hesitantly got up. His face did not relax in the slightest because of the departure of the enemy. Instead, it looked even more serious.

“If this wasn’t the Illusory Paradise, I’m afraid that we would have been doomed.” Long Haochen murmured quietly.

Sima Xian asked in a low voice, “Boss, how powerful was that guy?”

  • Rovi Evangelista

    Thank you for the chapter!!😄First commenthe he..👍☝

  • Baem LN

    Thanks for the chapter!

    • Robin

      Hahaha, nice dream, but there is still something called RL. At the moment, I wouldn’t be able to edit two chapters each day. I don’t know about Toto. 😉

      • Evilage

        Toto does release 2 chapters rarely( within 12 hours is one day okay?). Making that daily if enough sponsors were provided will probably ruin toto’s social life(i did say probably)

        • Robin

          Yeah, with some preparations it is possible, but constantly working on this pace would devour a lot of time.

          • Luke Confidential

            It can be profitable, I know at least one translator who dropped his dayjob to translate for donations. Though that is a hard row to hoe.

          • Robin

            I can imagine. I don’t know if I would make such a chancy decision even if I had the chance. A full time translator relying on donations would be utterly dependant on the reader’s readiness to donate.

      • Baem LN

        Can you try and give me a trial script for me to edit? I can help if you think I can do it. Toto did make double release daily when I started reading this series.

        • Robin

          Toto handles all the applications for support. I am only assisting his work to reach a higher quality of releases, so if you are really interested, you need to talk to him. 😉

    • felix

      Just about everyone who tries to “push” too hard drops dead pretty fast. Youtube channels, streamers, indie devs, etc. You see it all the time, especially when someone gets popular over night. This is the classic Icarus problem, fly too close to the sun and you’ll drop down like a rock.

      To be honest I haven’t seen ANYBODY ever claim they actually gained anything from doing big pushes in anything, unless it’s the final 10m in a dash to the finish line you always stand to lose more so then you gain. For example if Toto pushed himself too hard you’ll just inevitably end up with burnout or hangover and then deal with extra long delay between chapters. Nothing wrong with slow and steady. 🙂

      If you cant handle 1-3day release cycles just do what I do with some series. Wait for arcs to finish then read up to the next arc. Stop. Wait for it to finish and repeat.

    • If I feel able to do that one day, I’ll post about that ^^. But it will be possible only in times of holidays + no-homework-neithervacations-neitherparttimejob.

      It was the case when I started the translation of the serie, which was why you saw some double release days at that time.

      • Baem LN

        Okay! Notify me later. I’ll pool my money for that period!!!

  • Renegade

    This chapter was awesome!!!!!!

    Wow! In total shock as I read this one. LHC is just a big bad ass!

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Gotta admit now that…. is a combat scene. GO LHC! Show them what madmen can do!

      • Evilage

        That scene kind of reminded me of the breaker, anyone else with the same thoughts?

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Hmm, with Breaker I always link him more to getting the shit knocked out of him and then he stand ups. Then he gets the shit reknocked out of him and stands up…. In a pretty lengthy and gruesome cycle. LHC works more in the kamikaze kind of attack method than a contender method. At least for this fight. Though there are some easy parallels to be drawn. Both go against opponents stronger than them, both disregard the harm going all out could do to them, and they both shock their opponents at how suicidal they can be.

          I do have to say I love how Ah’Bao got his comeuppance for mocking Knights who go all out using sacrifice. That’ll teach him for looking down on insane people!

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Now this should be interesting. LHC bringing in his team mates is basically out in the open to the demons and at least Zhang Fangfang. I would say that Zhang is probably not going to complain since he would of died if they hadn’t, but the demons might be a problem. Though I think as long as LHC can sneak them back into the Tower of Eternity right when they exit and then play dumb I think he might be able to get away with it.

    On the bright side as well from what was said I believe the humans won those three spiritual Stoves wooh! One is going to Zhang naturally as one of the people who first started fighting over them and helped. The other two are probably going to LHC’s team. I would say probably one is going to Cai’er. I am also betting that there are not going to be two stoves that are good for Knights so LHC is probably not getting the third one. I do think that Han Yu is getting the third one and it is healing based. Those are just my predictions.

    I am curious if LHC and Co are going to continue on or get the hell out now that they have seen how powerful the other side is. They have injured pretty severely two of the heavy hitters and the demons are not in a place that is kind to them for recovery. So maybe LHC leads his team to go in a direction less stoves went since so many people headed in this direction.

    • Evilage

      They would continue i believe, since ah’bao is the successor the the DGE he will naturally be the strongest young talent among the demons, and LHC was able to injure him getting himself injured on the process.

      You probably are right zhang fangfang probably would stay quiet, but the same connot be said for the demon side, ah’bao should have noticed that LHC’s teammates didnt enter with them, or maybe he will stay quiet due to rivalry or something?

      His teammates would probably get atleast one stove from the three but it isnt enough for them since they want massice powerups so they probably will go looking for more, i doubt there will be an encounter with a strong demon again thou.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Well the warrior and the mage who started are dead. So the only one outside of LHC’s team there is Zhang. Zhang and Cai’er definitely deserve one stove each since they were there to start. LHC’s team then deserves one because without them Zhang and Cai’er would of at best had to retreat with nothing at worst died.

        To be fair we don’t know who actually killed the Magical Beast LHC buried. It could be possible that was Zhang and he will cede all three to LHC’s team for coming to the rescue since he already grabbed a stove.

        On the demons knowing that LHC’s team entered. I think what they might end up doing if the demons accuse them is just play stupid. I mean even the humans have no idea how someone could sneak into the Illusory Paradise. It would be more logical to them that the Demons are lying to start trouble than LHC figured out a method to get people in.

        If they continue on I wonder if Zhang is going to stick with them or tap out at this point. I don’t think he is going to manage to get more prizes than one stove after this amount of time has passed and I think it is getting way to dangerous to wander around alone. I agree with you LHC’s team is probably sticking it out and is most likely going to try and rush a different direction to grab a stove or two more since they have seen so many demons on this side. Probably try to warn the rest of the humans as well if they can find them.

        • Robin

          Well, and don’t forget, that the demons have no right to bitch about a little more humans since they hid their level of strength and broke the agreement first. If they can’t kill all the humans their trick will come to light and it they will never again get the chance to enter the Illusory Paradise with the permission of the humans. One could argue that having some humans waiting in reserve is only to equal the balance again. Though I agree that Haochen and company will probably only have to play dumb.

      • Matt

        So if the DGE is like Bibi Dong from Soul Land, Ah’Bao is sort of like Qian Renxue?

        • Luke Confidential

          It’s not that simple. The DGE himself is actually fairly benevolent whereas Bigbig Dong just wants to stick it in [I mean to] everybody.

          • Matt

            Yeah, she’s kind of a bitch. I actually kind of hope the DGE survives somehow, he and the Moon DG seem okay.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I just have to say that Freud would have a lot of comments about your naming scheme there….. I however approve with it a lot, :D.

    • Psyside

      They continue but on a opposite side i think. So as they dont meet the demons again.Or they may meet Yue Yues frend that demon girl. Cos she hasnt shown herself yet. And mby caier gets to brand another Demon waifu for LHC xD
      Also this chapter comfirms that dude is Demon LHC

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I love the idea of LHC getting one more branded Waifu. A harem of Future Demon Gods.

        • Psyside

          If that does happen i imagine her to be a Tsundere.Cos she didnt like lhc gave him the stare

  • agila0212

    The ad comes before the last line of the chapter. Not sure if that’s on purpose?

  • Orario MAL

    Glad to finally see Haochen outmatched. Not that I dislike him being strong, but having a powerful opponent will drive him to become even more powerful
