Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 407

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 407: Awakening as a God’s Chosen one, Reaper’s Sickle (II)

In other words, as long as Long Haochen was given sufficient time for cultivation, he would finally reach the seventh step, and his future cultivation speed will then become a lot faster than the powerhouses at the seventh step who only opened two spiritual cavities.

The many Demon Hunter Removers standing nearby were all staring with their eyes wide open, but they didn’t dare act on their own. Without receiving Ah’Bao’s order, they didn’t dare move rashly, and moreover, they still felt some fear due to the great display of power from Long Haochen and Cai’er.

If this was in the Temple Alliance and the situation was reversed, perhaps the powerhouses from the Temple Alliance wouldn’t be able to refrain themselves from killing Ah’Bao, even at the cost of a severe punishment, because of the importance of getting rid of a possibly powerful enemy of the Alliance.

But demons certainly were different. They placed high importance to benefit and strength. In their mind, there didn’t exist any target of dedicated focus, only absolute thirst for benefits. What good would it do them to kill Long Haochen and Cai’er? The result would be no more than their sure death, because the fury of the demon crown prince wasn’t something one could bear that easily. This would even possibly implicate their clan. Thus, all they could do was wait.

Two hours passed in the blink of an eye.

Long Haochen finally forced all the fist intent out of his body, and although his body was still weak, the fist intent finally stopped wreaking havoc in him. What followed was only a process of recovery.

And furthermore, he found out that his own judgement wasn’t wrong; throughout these two hours, the spiritual cavities in the space between his eyebrows and his abdomen already absorbed a certain amount of spiritual energy, and although it was little, they were gradually taking shape. After spending more time cultivating, and after the spiritual cavity on his chest filled, the stockpile from the spiritual energy gained from cultivating would go to these two new sets of spiritual cavities. In case these two spiritual cavities complete their incubation, his future cultivation, offense, defense, and storage of spiritual energy will become three times higher than now. That’s the precedence of the seventh step over the sixth step, to say nothing that at the seventh step, one can make full use of the powerful amplification ability known as Brilliant Body.

Ah’Bao’s body emitted some purplish black light, and his injuries healed faster than Long Haochen’s. Similarly, he appeared pleasantly surprised that although he didn’t truly start breaking through the bottleneck between the eighth step and the ninth step, as long as he was given some time, he felt confident that after a short period of time, he would become a powerhouse of the ninth step.

Being a successor to the lineage of the Demon God Emperor, he was different from ordinary Devil Dragons. After his birth, he had a very weak strength, the same as humans, and his present strength was acquired through continuous cultivation. Because of his immense talent that far exceeded his clansmen, he could possibly become a supreme powerhouse like the Demon God Emperor. To ordinary Devil Dragons, after breaking through to the ninth step, the growth of their strength will reduce enormously, and unless they encounter very fortuitous circumstances, gaining a huge boost in strength will be very hard.

Some good news at last. The gloom filling Ah’Bao’s heart finally lightened. As long as he breaks through to the ninth step, his position as successor should be settled, and he would then be able to start borrowing the true might of the first demon god pillar. At that time, his strength would increase exponentially, to an extent big enough to crush Long Haochen.

Ah’Bao couldn’t help but lament secretly. If he could always have a rival such as Long Haochen to stir him on, his future growth would perhaps truly surpass his father. But as the ruler of the demon race, when given the opportunity, he still had to immediately kill Long Haochen, to eliminate a future threat.

When Ah’Bao started to reach the bottleneck to the ninth step, Ah’Bao suddenly sensed a great change. Perceiving a substantial danger to himself, he immediately concluded his cultivation and suddenly opened his eyes.

Long Haochen did the same. When the eyes of the two opened, a pair of blood-colored and a pair of golden eyes lit up. They exchanged a glance before turning their gazes to Cai’er.

As expected, a change appeared on Cai’er. Her posture was the same as before. However, her body emitted a dusky luster, and her white skin turned crystal grey, while she stood there like a sculpture.

Still, Long Haochen and Ah’Bao’s expression changed, because they noticed with astonishment that her crystal grey body exuded some physical killing intent. Right, her killing intent actually turned material.

“How… How is that possible?” Ah’Bao asked, dumbstruck.

Right at this time, an overflowing killing intent burst out abruptly, taking the shape of a gigantic blade. With ear-piercing tearing sounds, a small rift appeared in midair, and this rift enlarged and gained altitude at an astounding speed.

This was killing intent tearing up the space!

The massive force and terrifying killing intent caused the Demon Hunter Removers to instantly draw back, and even those Demon Hunter Removers at the eighth step were no exception.

From that small rift, a shining grey light abruptly dropped down, floating above Cai’er’s head in the shape of grey ripples. On her forehead, a grey sickle gradually took form, and meanwhile, in the midst of the radiating grey, a black dagger emerged floating behind her back.

A purple lightning was abruptly shot from the rift, accurately aiming at the dagger. Immediately, Cai’er’s body shivered violently, and the black dagger suddenly turned grey, while the intense grey radiance was absorbed by it. The dagger expanded and curved, turning into a massive grey sickle filled with deathly stillness.

This sickle was really too huge. It’s handle alone exceeded three meters in length, and it’s one third of a meter wide blade also was more than two meters long. The large grey crystals forming the blade radiated a soft light, looking like rippling waves, and a large amount of black luster filled the surroundings.

As one might imagine, if such a lethal weapon was swung on a battlefield, the results would be a terrible bloodshed.

“Awakening?” Ah’Bao finally realized the truth. What aftereffects? This was evidently an excuse made by Long Haochen. This powerful female partner was actually having an awakening, and that was the awakening of a god’s chosen one!

Right at this time, Ah’Bao revealed his firmness as the demon crown prince, for whom the safety of all the demons took priority. Suppressing his own heartache, he shouted in fury, “Kill them!”

As a single god’s chosen one, Long Haochen was already a future mortal enemy, but in case another god’s chosen one was to appear by his side as a comrade, in the future they would very possibly become an existence able to overturn the demon rule. What was his own heartache compared to the life or death of his race? With these thoughts, Ah’Bao immediately gave the order of kill.

As Ah’Bao gave this order, Long Haochen would naturally not sit still and await his death. After he recovered for two hours, his reserves were only replenished to one third, but he had been preparing for this situation all along. It was just that he didn’t expect Cai’er’s awakening to occur that fast, and now to actually end a lot faster than his own back then.

This was actually quite normal. The process of Cai’er’s awakening went more smoothly than for Long Haochen because of her relation to the Dagger of Samsara. It could be said that Cai’er’s physique as Saint Daughter of Samsara had been strongly influenced by the Dagger of Samsara, which brought her the inheritance of the god of death. Long Haochen wasn’t the same, his physique as god’s chosen one was a result of his own efforts, and his entire process of awakening relied on his own comprehension.

Although the Dagger of Samsara was tyrannical, its aftereffects were also very great. During Cai’er’s awakening, it acted as a bridge, and under these circumstances, her awakening naturally went a lot faster. After the short time of a little more than two hours, her comprehension was complete, and the inheritance of the god of death was bestowed upon her.

Two radiances rushed out of Long Haochen’s chest: one red and one blue, swiftly flying to the battlefield.

These two massive figures brazenly blocked Ah’Bao’s way, and a terrible aura of ice was suddenly released from that blue figure, abruptly forming a tough Resisting Ice Ring.

And that Resisting Ice Ring wasn’t single-layered! It combined three overlapping layers, the second one outside the first, and the third one outside the second. The three concentric Resisting Ice Rings were united as one, producing a very powerful colliding force.

All of this happened very suddenly. The fastest ones to react were Ah’Bao and Long Haochen, but the two of them were still seriously injured. Ah’Bao’s injuries were lighter than Long Haochen’s and his recovery also a little better, but only half of his strength was recovered. At this time, the toughness of the Resisting Ice Ring abruptly emerged. Immediately trapping Ah’Bao inside, it forcibly repelled all the surrounding demon powerhouses several meters.

Right at this time, an intense purple glint burst forth from Long Haochen’s forehead, and a massive figure appeared brazenly in front of him.

That huge creature was over ten meters long. Raising all its four heads, the eight eyes on them were filled with purple light, radiating nobility.

Two of their purple gazes simultaneously landed on Long Haochen and Cai’er, while the other two landed on the red and the blue figures. Immediately, a terrible scene occurred, and a massively twisted extraordinarily tyrannical energy was exuded from this massive figure, covering a radius of a hundred meters.

Screams came out from the mouths of every demon, including even the crown prince Ah’Bao.

It came from the pain of sensing their bodies being ripped apart, as the magical power in them was going in complete insurrection, with the elemental essences surrounding them fluctuating madly.

The demons of the eighth step were still better off, but only by hastening their spiritual energy to protect them could they save themselves. Those demons of the seventh step were somewhat weaker, and had their flesh lacerated. Although they weren’t directly killed by the warping entanglement of Essence of Disorder, they still sustained massive damage.

  • Sodacannon

    Waaah ~ so exciting!!! Thanks for the chapter 🙂

  • SYWZ Fan

    I want Cai’er to start a killing spree!

    • RyokoZero

      The killing Spree has already started… she just needs to reap them after this huge blow made by Hao Yue. Then the two skellies can clean up the aftermass.

      I would leave Ah’Bao there shamed after losing all 6 of the Devil Hunter squads and his fiancee. Nah kill him too.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I was going to say LHC needs to kill Ah’Bao for the same reason Ah’Bao needs to kill him, lol.

        The slaughter has begun…. Now go Cai’er the newly anointed Mistress of Death! WOOOH!

      • Seemstress

        Didn’t she already kill off four powerhouses of the seventh step? Can’t that be considered a start to the killing spree?

        • Jonathan Hurd

          That is the appetizer. Its time for the main course….. 😀

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro and Thomas!

  • Normal_Guy

    Nice going…I wonder how the team mates will keep up with them?

    • Seemstress

      They won’t, they’ve been constantly outclassed since the start and it’s going to stay that way. They’re all leeching off of LHC. I’m not saying they’re not talented, but LHC and Cai’er are in a league of their own.

      • Normal_Guy

        I only hope that there wont be any crazy ass plot twist so that they suddenly become strong…

        • Robin

          I suspect that there are still a lot of plot twists in wait for us. Especially concerning the relationships between the team members. But I don’t see a sudden power-up coming so far.

          • Normal_Guy

            hoe so….tjss generally doesnt do sudden power ups with team mates but who knows?

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I still feel that in the near future LHC is going to be tasked to look after a newbie Soldier DHS and while he focuses on that he lets the others work to keep up. Cai’er could also potentially follow for that. We have seen a few examples of Demon Hunters working separately from their squads to do some other tasks so I think its reasonable.

          • Seemstress

            I also think that they need to take a break sometime, to let the other DHSs catch up at least slightly. If they keep going at their current rate, the other teams and the characters inside them, that the author’s been building up, will become too trivial.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I think partly Headquarters might force LHC to take time off just so he doesn’t run off somewhere and take more missions again. I’m betting Han Qian is going to make sure LHC has to stay safe after LHC comes back from 15 slaughter missions especially after he finds out about this encounter, lol.

          • Luke Confidential

            We predicted long ago that this particular DHS was ESPECIALLY well-suited to Slaughter missions.

            Granted after Elux made LHC his apprentice and LHC gained the ability to transport the whole team with a fairly small fraction of his total Spiritual Energy [I think it’s around 10-15% now?] they became freakishly good at scouting missions as well.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I definitely agree they are awesome for killing missions and even scouting thanks to the sheer safety. I mean LHC could go alone scout and then get recalled by Hao Yue to the Alliance Territory if he had to. Save a hell of a lot of travel time.

            I don’t think they will be doing anything as insane as taking 15 straight missions again. Since that was mainly to awaken Cai’er.

          • Luke Confidential

            I wouldn’t necessarily say they won’t, but that’s only because they hit so far above their paygrade. It seems they always promote at a power level comparable to the very top of the new rank they’re coming into.

          • Donald Trump

            I hope that the relations get s bit messed up xD It will be interesting.

        • Eskyso

          Don’t forget that their team still has at least one more special physique, body of chaos i think, so its possible that at least Yinger will get an upgrade. Also 2 of them are retainer knights of Haochen so it may affect them too. Even Wang has her shield with empty slots to use so as of now only Lin Xin has nothing special that cam power him up.

          • Normal_Guy

            wait wait…where did this body of chaos come from? is it a divine body?

          • Kilimandaros

            Chapter 211, Ying’er talked about it.

          • Donald Trump

            i see

          • Donald Trump

            damn just looked at it! she has been so non descript this whole time that I forgot about her!

          • Eskyso

            Yup xD im pretty curious about her body of chaos, can’t wait to see what the author will do with it. Will she get chaos powers? is there a god of chaos? What does even mean to have chaos powers xD

          • Donald Trump

            who knows? chaos has a lot to do wit universe and stuff in chinese mythology so she might have some powers as well.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I wouldn’t say they are completely outclassed. Cai’er and LHC are important but just the two of them can’t take on the whole of the demon army. LHC’s teammates have their own powers to add.

        Lin Xin has his pills that can help massively boost everyones strength. Han Yu and Sima are directly connected to LHC so they won’t be falling behind any time soon. Add in that Sima has stupid amounts of brute force damage while Han Yu has their healing. Yinger has her own special constitution that hasn’t awoken yet. Wang Yuanyuan has that Blood Lineage shield that still hasn’t even shown half of its full power.

        I’m not saying they are going to be as strong as LHC and Cai’er, but their jobs are not the same as LHC and Cai’er. They each have their place and they have shown themselves to be of great help. There is a high chance that without any one of them Cai’er and LHC wouldn’t have lived to see this point.

        • Seemstress

          I didn’t say they aren’t useful to the team, I agree LHC wouldn’t have made it to where he is without them. He could have done so with other people on the team as well though. They would have made it work. Like I said, they are talents on their own, but are outclassed. Sure, they each have their own part to play, it is a team after all. But, if we judge them as indivuduals, they are most certainly outclassed and always will be. The fact that two of them are leeching off of LHC’s innate talent, strengthens my point, just as everyone got a spiritual stone thanks to LHC, they’re also all using the Eternal Melody, but LHC is also leeching off of Elux in that case so I won’t count that as them leeching off of him. Then there’s summoner girl (can’t remember the name off the bat, I’ve been reading too many novels and manga lately, can’t keep track of all of the names), if I remember correctly she can only show her true power after she reaches the 8th step (not sure about this, could be 7th), so she’s leeching off of everyone, which has been pointed out in the story multiple times, though the pig does make her useful.
          Anyway, this is long enough already. My point, while they do pull their weight, individually however, they pale in comparison to Cai’er and LHC. It is the fact that they are Gods’ chosen ones. They are meant to be OP.
          P.S. Don’t feel like checking for any mistakes since I’m on my phone atm, bear with me and endure if I made any obvious typos and the bad formatting.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            No problem on grammar. I know its a pain in the ass to scroll up and down on phones >.<.

            For Yinger (the summoner) her Body of Chaos is supposed to show its effect at 7th step. She did admittedly start out as a hindrance to the team, but after getting McDull that started to turn around pretty hard. It was thanks to McDull and her that they managed to escape from the ambush against Yue Ye's Caravan. Replacing her with anyone else would of just left them dead for quite a few fights.

            I would say leaching might be a too strong term for LHC and Elux's relationship. Also probably for LHC and the rest of the team. Leaching or parasitism to me is taking without giving anything in return. LHC's retainer knights especially Han Yu are beholden to him and protect him over themselves. For Elux and LHC's relationship LHC has been taken as Elux's apprentice. It seems pretty normal for a master to help and teach his student. Elux also specifically told LHC he can bring in friends to also train in the Tower of Eternity so it feels less like stealing and more like accepting gifts to me.

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • sergioGM

    thanks 🙂

  • Marko Bandur


    I am the only one that hoped this was refferring to skele sensei and mage sensei? XD

    I was so sad after finishing reading the chapter lol

    • RyokoZero

      It was them… they were the figures blocking Ah’Boa

    • Robin

      Something’s strange about your editing.

      • Marko Bandur

        Yeah dnt know why, but first time ive copied the phrase, it came out with a lot of <>{}{}}}}
        Then ive edited the post writing the phrase xD

    • Jonathan Hurd

      They be fighting, :D. LHC is bringing out all the stops.

  • Psyside


    • Jonathan Hurd

      ITS HAPPENING FOLKS! Shit is going down!

      God I love you Ice Sensei!

  • Psyside

    After this Ah bao tells DGE about Hao yue,,,, OH GOD,,,,

    • Robin

      I think this is unavoidable after he made such a flashy entrance…

      • Psyside

        ye…and since the other “heirs” mount is Austin… i wonder what his reaction will be

    • Jonathan Hurd

      To be fair that depends if Ah’Bao makes it out of this alive enough to tell anything, lol.

      The DGE has confirmed Hao Yue’s existence and he is pretty sure that Hao Yue is connected to LHC so I don’t think this will come as much surprise even then.

      I am looking forward to just how embarrassed Ah’Bao is at the end of all this though. You failed to kill two gods chosen, failed to kill a King and Commander Grade DHS, Failed to save your fiance and favorite daughter of the Moon DG, and you managed to do all this while have 6 DHR’s squads…. How the hell do you even show your face after fucking up that hard, lol.

      • Robin

        I think we can be sure that he won’t kill Ah’Bao. It would kill a lot of the fun if one rival would die before reaching their peak. Also, we need to have return Ah’Bao in shame and grovel before his father.

        Regarding Haoyue, with that many witnesses for the appearance of such a special creature, there is not a chance that the DGE won’t learn of it.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Well it is certainly confirmation of what he believes, but it has already been told that Austin Griffin is here by the Star Gods Prophecy. It was also felt when LHC and Hao Yue did their fusion. So I don’t think it will be that shocking since the demons are already certain. The real shock would be he is working with humans but that was kind of hinted at in the Star Gods prophecy as well.

  • Jeferson Lucas

    GOD!! The author really knows how to make us waiting anxiously the next chapter!

    • Seemstress

      Well, if you really really want to know what happens next, there is a machine translation out there that is ahead of Totobro. But be warned, it is very rough, hard to read and it is very hard sometimes to realise what is being said. It is why I don’t read it. This, a proper translation with good English (if I remember correctly I was kinda annoyed at times by the quality in the first hundred or so chapters, but it’s gotten a lot better since then), it is like comparing LHS’s team with normal demon hunter squads.

  • Jonathan Hurd

    So I am a bit worried about Yue Ye. If I remember correctly Elux told LHC to not bring in Darkness Attribute people into the Tower or it will activate the defenses…

    The other thing I wonder about now is how the hell LHC is going to let her return… Since the Demons are fighting without caring about her safety its not like he can just give her back for safe passage anymore. He needs her in the demons side so she can continue to share info, but if he releases her too easily that will make people suspicious. Anyone else think we’re going to get a hostage exchange/bribe thing happening after this all blows over?

    • Robin

      Would be funny if she is returned for a ransom!

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I think that is the only way he can return her, lol. Just being like ‘Well I didn’t need the Moon Demon God’s favorite daughter anymore you can have her back’. Would be so stupid and confusing I don’t think anyone will see that and not be suspicious.

        • Robin

          The Alliance will have a blast, should Haochen involve them. Which I doubt by the way, but it would be funny.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I think LHC might need to involve the higher ups just so the demons don’t capture or kill him in the process of the exchange. The Temple Alliance higher ups definitely have ways to communicate with the demons and can set the stage for the exchange.

            Only problem is that LHC is still pretty far away from home base and still has more Slaughter missions to do… I’m not sure how safe it is to keep her in the Tower of Eternity for long periods of time.

            The problem then is if they can’t keep her with them then everyone would probably assume the easy choice is just kill her and be done with it. Do you think they might be able to swing a ‘We released her with the promise she would pay the ransom in the future…?’

            They could make use of the fact she has the Dagger of Samsara’s mark that could instantly kill her to make sure they get paid after returning her. The caveat to that though would be they reveal it to the demons and have to dispel it.

          • Robin

            I also think that they need to involve the higher ups, especially after offending the successor of the DGE and so many demon powerhouses like that. Regarding their slaughter missions, I think they already fulfilled a lot of them with much time to spare. It all depends on how dangerous it will become for them to act after all this action.

            I hope Yue Ye will not suffer in the Tower, she is a good and likeable ally. But they can be sure that she won’t try to escape, even if they let her out. But it will be tricky to explain why she doesn’t try to escape, and not let others learn about their reationship.
            I doubt that they want to disclose that Cai’er has the daughter of the 2nd Moon Demon God and beloved betrothed of the DGE’s successor in thrall. The old geezers would surely want to exploit it.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            It is definitely worth the higher ups getting to know that LHC is on the hit list of the DGE successor. I feel like if they learn about Yue Ye it might become apparent that she is the leader of a free merchant group. So keeping her off the table might be for the best.

            I hope they continue on their slaughter missions after this is done. They can get away a ways and then retreat into the Tower of Eternity and nurse LHC back to health there.

            I still feel that this is the best and most opportune time to kill and destroy the 72nd DG and his pillar. That also will potentially have an effect on Hao Yue’s strength since apparently the 72 DG pillars are acting as a seal from what the DGE said.

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Thanks for the chapter Toto and Sponsors, :D. This is definitely an arc I like to read sooner, hehe.

  • Zetta

    Thank you so much for the chapter Toto and sponsors, this chapter had something I’ve been wanting to see for some time now. I want to see just how effective the two skeleton knights will be, I can’t wait.

  • Anto Wibowo

    The hunt for lhc for hao yue should begun not long after tthis.
    Thank you for the chapter!

    • Jonathan Hurd

      The hunts basically been on. Good luck finding him though since he can retreat to the Tower of Eternity, lol.

    Thank you Totobro and sponsor Thomas S.

  • Damn, Hao Yue is probably stronger than Haochen at this moment
