‘And now for the 23rd tournament battle! It’s Mad Slime CORE vs Ghost Guild! And the selected field is…the futuristic city!’
Numerous skyscrapers appeared on the viewing monitors.
Roads stretched and winded through them as drones flew in the air.
It was what humans once thought the future would look like.
Though, a lot of futuristic cities had buildings that were designed with safety and efficiency in mind.
The bolder designs were saved for tourist attractions.
Still, these buildings sure were tall.
I thought of snipers who shot through the gaps between buildings.
But at the same time, there were a lot of things to hide behind.
With so many blind spots, it would be easy for an enemy to get close.
Even with the others protecting me, it would be best for me to stay in the back as support.
It was easy for snipers to be targeted by assassins.
That was about all I could think about now.
“Let’s go and win! We will accept nothing but victory!”
As the oldest here, I called out to the nervous youngsters.
Obviously, our battle would be compared to the many entertaining battles that had played out already.
As people wanted to enjoy a show, that also added to the pressure…!
“There’s no reason to think too deeply.
Just think about winning.
That should be enough to make it as entertaining as possible…!”
I was mostly saying this to convince myself, but the others agreed.
If we did what we came to do, there was no need to feel embarrassed regardless of anything else.
And if we did lose, there would be an article on the net about how the ‘Ghost Guild was defeated in the first round,’ that’s all.
…Though, I would hate that!
‘Both parties to the battlefield!’
And so the Ghost Guild was warped to the futuristic city.
◆ ◆ ◆
So, where…did I spawn?
Apparently, it was on some road.
But it was in a very high place…
As this was made to be a battlefield, there were no guardrails, and so you could walk off the edge of the road and plummet to the bottom…
And so I hesitantly walked to the edge and looked down…
A junction where several roads joined together in mid air!
It must be so amazing to look at from the outside, or drive across…!
Especially at night time.
The lights from the cars would look like shooting stars that moved in different directions.
It was nice that it wasn’t just cool buildings, but the place was designed to be useful for people as well!
There were plenty of objects that were just cool to look at, but there was something great about things that were the result of maximum efficiency!
Well, this was still from someone’s imagination, and wasn’t exactly minimalist, but the junction was still so… Ah, this was no time to be thinking about that!
I couldn’t see any of my party members!
Was this going to be the pattern where I had to start the battle while the whole party was scattered!?
I had to find them as soon as possible…!
That being said, I was also in a great position that offered a view over a large area.
And it would be a waste to abandon it.
There were no tall buildings close to me, so my line of fire extended far.
It would be best to unite with the others here…!
“Oh! Garbow! You were nearby!”
While the Unisons also warped in random locations, the Unisons themselves knew where their comrades were, and so they would move to the closest player after being warped.
And so it wasn’t necessarily the player who they were attached to.
So Garbow being close to me was pure luck!
Garbow had already activated B Ocean Sphere as he moved towards me.
Was it lonely being by himself?
…It would have been nice if it was something so cute, but I doubted it.
He wasn’t rushing towards me in order to jump into my arms.
He was being chased by someone…!
Or else he wouldn’t have used such a powerful charge attack already!
“Exorcism Barrier! Sniping Eye!”
I activated the barrier to protect myself against a surprise attack, and then I looked towards Garbow’s back.
But Garbow was the only thing on the road.
And he was moving straight towards me.
There was no sign of anyone else.
Though it was possible that they were invisible.
I suppose I should use Seal Demon Bind traps or try to burn it with Demon Purification Light’s lasers…
Suddenly, the road in front of me tore apart, and something like a giant snake jumped out!
No, on further inspection, it wasn’t a snake!
Chains? Blades? Wires?
“It’s a whip sword!”
A weapon made by connecting separating blades with a wire!
The road had been destroyed from below by a giant version of it!
Now I would be separated from Garbow…!
“That’s quite some speed!”
But Garbow had reached this side before the road collapsed completely!
As B Ocean Sphere was still activated, I quickly grabbed onto him so that we could escape!
Now that the enemy was so close, it was better to run…!
“Tsk! Damn it! My aim was a little off! As I was attacking from below, I couldn’t see the exact location!”
The person had attacked, missed, got angry, and then started making excuses…!
Annoyances aside, this was the voice of…Core!
So my first encounter was with the leader of the enemy party…!
