Chapter 612: The Artistic Agility System


Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

A warm stabbing pain radiated to his entire body in an instant. The Ironback Bear soul master’s body stiffened at once.
In the eyes of the audience, everything happened earlier in an instant. As long as the audience was watching this match attentively, he or she would discover that the close quarter combat skill which Xie Xie had just displayed was simply filled with artistic sense.
He was first blown away like smoke, then his entire person glided, attacked, resumed, circled to the back, turned around swiftly. He managed to complete a few movements in an unbelievably short period of time just like a ghost.
In the next moment after the Light Dragon Dagger stabbed into the Ironback Bear soul master’s armpit, the dagger was lifted immediately after it touched his back as Xie Xie leaped up into the air before he stabbed toward the back of the opponent’s neck.
The Light Dragon Dagger had only touched the back of the opponent’s neck gently, the Ironback Bear soul master’s large body immediately slumped onto the ground at the sound of a thump. His central nervous system was seal so the effect was absolutely instantaneous.
The long-tailed soul master had only reacted to the situation earlier. Her first soul skill that was displayed earlier was a spiritual disturbance. It was a spiritual attribute skill but it was considered an especially strong Control System soul skill. Her soul skill could achieve a rather impressive result every time it was used while working with her brother as a team. Yet unexpectedly, everything that Xie Xie did was feigned.
Xie Xie had learned of the Purple Demon Eyes as well. The Purple Demon Eyes’s greatest advantage was its effect in elevating the spiritual power so although he was disturbed, he could recover in an instant, while Agility System soul master’s reactivity was always undisputed.
A pop sound exploded in the air. Yuanen did not even transform herself before her second soul skill Air Cannon was released out of thin air. It blasted straight to the long-tailed soul master.
The long-tailed soul master flung her huge tail. A ring of light bloomed in an attempt to resist the Air Cannon.
However, Yuanen’s control of the Air Cannon was not so easily resisted. The Air Cannon that looked to be about the size of a fist exploded with the power almost equal to a soul cannon. The Control System soul master was blasted out by the explosion within the violent booming sound. She fainted.
The entire match from the beginning to the end sounded slow when it was described in words when in reality it took the time for one to take three or four breaths.
Four contestants were all having the same four soul rings. However, the result was so shocking as such.
Someone from the Star Luo Empire’s side was following this match closely on the rostrum. The audience was unaware of Yuanen Yehui and Xie Xie’s background, while the organizer was well-informed.
“Your Highness, these two youths from the Shrek Academy were truly extraordinary!” an elder whispered to the Star Luo Empire’s emperor Dai Tianling.
Dai Tianling nodded gently. “How are they compared to our Monster Academy’s students?”
The elder frowned slightly. “If they’re compared to their peers of the same age, it can be quite difficult to tell.”
Dai Tianling took a glance at the elder. He could tell that the elder’s words signified that he was not looking up at his own side according to Dai Tianling’s understanding of this elder. The elder spoke, “However, the competition set the age limit at twenty years old, so it should not be a problem to defeat them. We’ll need to continue observing their situation. I can tell from the match earlier that the Agility System soul master should be the dominant fighter from his team. His speed, explosiveness, his control of the battlefield and even his spiritual power was rather good. If the Shrek Academy didn’t feign his enrollment age such that a fifteen-year-old boy is capable of achieving such standards, then he is truly a genius. However, other than those aforementioned points, he lacks the essential feature of a powerful soul master, that is precisely out of the ordinary. I’ll still need to continue observing if his martial soul is capable of more abilities.”
Dai Tianling smiled. He said, “The Shrek Academy is invited to participate in this year’s competition as a notable addition. If our people are confident of defeating them in the end, we’ll need to do more publicity in advance. After all, the Douluo Continent’s Shrek Academy is very renowned. If we don’t have the confidence to win in the end, then we shall control the publicity in order to avoid crushing our younger generation’s confidence.”
“Alright.”
Xie Xie and Yuanen Yehui stepped down from the stage. Xie Xie’s icy cold expression from the competition earlier vanished without a trace at once. He puffed up his chest with a proud expression on his face.
Xie Xie sniggered. “Am I powerful, tell me, am I powerful? Just a few slight turns and I managed to conquer the enemy.”
“Shut up.”
“Am I not powerful then? Perhaps you didn’t see clearly, I was so handsome earlier…ouch…”
Yuanen Yehui suddenly turned around and punched onto Xie Xie’s stomach, such that this fellow’s brag and boast were drowned in his throat.
Then, she walked in great strides in the direction of the contestant waiting area. A smile emerged on her face, he had truly become stronger.
There were a lot of large display screens in the waiting area, all fifteen of the screens were live broadcasting the matches earlier.
By the time Xie Xie and Yuanen Yehui returned in succession, the expression of the contestants who were waiting here completely changed when they looked at Xie Xie and Yuanen Yehui.
In the current round of fifteen matches earlier, theirs ended the soonest. The ultra-strong close quarter combat skill which Xie Xie displayed was absolutely the most shocking one.
In particular, he did not even use one soul skill in the match before he conquered an Assault System soul master of the same level of cultivation base. Anyone with a discerning eye could tell that although the Ironback Bear soul master did not fully express his powers, his defeat was also directly related to Xie Xie’s personal attacks that were too strong. Xie Xie’s skill was already not weaker than a soul skill.
Tang Wulin stretched out his hand and high-fived Xie Xie as a celebration. Xie Xie dared no show off anymore but he kept a straight face and appeared cool.
Tang Wulin took a glance at the competition’s sorting, it was his and Gu Yue’s turn to enter the arena in the next round.
He used his shoulder to nudge at Gu Yue who was sitting by his side. “I’m so nervous, what should I do? Are you nervous?”
The corners of Gu Yue’s lips twitched. “Stop messing around.”
Tang Wulin said, “I’m really very nervous! What should we do if we’re up against especially powerful opponents?
He feigned an anxious look on his face as he was saying that.
Gu Yue pinched him quietly. “Will you start acting like a captain now?”
Tang Wulin laughed and spoke, “So are you nervous or not?”
Gu Yue answered calmly, “I’ll beat you together with the other two opponents later if you keep acting extravagantly. Three against one.”
“Uh…I don’t think that’s allowed. The rule forbids it. You can’t do that to me,” Tang Wulin wailed sorrowfully in a soft tone.
“Captain, I can’t stand this anymore!” Xu Xiaoyan pouted her lips.
Yue Zhengyu chimed in from the side, “Exactly, please be more serious.”
Tang Wulin sniggered. “In a sense, there’s a chance for us to fight each other before long.”
“Uh…” Yue Zhengyu spoke furiously, “You’re threatening us. I’m going to tell Teacher Wu about this.”
“Go then.”
Their little squadron’s relaxing atmosphere, together with Xie Xie and Yuanen Yehui’s ultra-strong performance earlier raised the attention of many people in their surroundings.
Since they came together in a group, moreover Yuanen Yehui and Xie Xie did not appear to be the leader of the squadron, then, how about the powers of their squadron’s other members?
Some people had already recognized Tang Wulin. Soon, the story of how Tang Wulin managed to triumph over a One-word Battle Armor master in a one-to-one match on the first day had already spread in a small range.
The competition was carried out real soon, the paired match was even carried out even faster than an individual match. The outburst of an all-rounded collision was frequently enough to determine the victory and defeat.
It was time for Tang Wulin and Gu Yue to enter the arena.
The both of them walked side by side along the channel into the sparring arena. Tang Wulin sensed the enthusiastic atmosphere of the coliseum as he said to Gu Yue, “The Star Luo Empire’s atmosphere is amazing. Our side felt too controlled and standardized in comparison. Sometimes, a battle needs some intense passion too.”
“Hmm.”
“I’ll fight alone later. You’ll stay behind and help me to hold the line. It’ll be your turn when I can’t fight anymore.” Tang Wulin smiled at Gu Yue.
