hat the people who were watching would think the same. 

“This is a negotiation that is using honor as a shield. Well have to go along in order to avoid looking like a group that ignored and bullied the poor guys. Of course, it wont affect the prize or trophy if we dont, but it could affect our reputation…!”

“I agree that we have no choice but to accept. But if we do it here, wont there be a lot of other parties doing the same later on? There is sure to be other parties that will have an advantage by challenging us while solo. Especially you, old man.”

I see. Like Necoco said, if they wanted to kill me easily, then it would be best to do it when I was solo and there was no advance guard.

But I had a feeling that the Gz werent even considering that.

It was all speculation, of course, but I thought that they were just trying to recreate the situations from classic manga, where the protagonist and friends take on the enemy generals.

The great sorcerer, hero, master, ronin. They wanted to experience something they dreamed of, but was impossible in real life…

That was what VR was all about.

“While I understand your concerns, Necoco, there is no need to worry. No one likes a rehash, and so we could ignore future challenges. And its the ignored that will look bad.”

“Thats probably true. Alright. Then lets accept the challenge from these old men!”

“The problem is who will go to which plateau. Which player to which color…”

‘We will now announce your opponents!!!





We could hardly believe our ears.

What? They were going to decide that too…?

‘At the red plateau, Odachi Ronin Koharu! And his opponent will be Thunder Blackcat Necoco!

They were even assigning us nicknames…!

‘And at the blue plateau, Sly Hidden Blade Shishou! And his opponent will be the Phantom Master Satomi! While it is a 1 vs 1 duel, as he is a Unison Master, he will be granted special permission to use his Unison!

The fact that they just barely avoided crossing the line was somehow even more infuriating…

‘And at the yellow plateau is the Golden Hero Yushia! His opponent is Madstar Sister Annemarie! Furthermore, as the Destruction God Koromaro is on this plateau, you would be advised to take Star Crushing Ancient Weapon Garbow with you!

Now they were trying to separate me and Garbow…!

If you werent the original partner, then you wouldnt know their skills and charge attacks, which meant you couldnt make use of their full potential…but they probably didnt know that.

After all, Koromaro moved independently…

‘And at the black plateau is Great Sorcerer Jiji! And his opponent is the Old Bowman Kyuji!

Why am I the only one without a cool nickname…!

I dont know. I would be too embarrassed to think of one myself, but I wanted a cool name…!

Old Bowman is nice and all, but just this one time…

No, calm down.

There was something else that bothered me.

While they were the ones choosing the opponents, it didnt seem like they were giving themselves an advantage at all.

Necoco specialized in speed, but they sent her against someone with a huge sword.

Koromaro dealt physical, destructive attacks, and they sent it against Anne and Garbow, who had great defense.

And I was up against someone who used ranged attacks….

Only the Satomi and Shishou combination was unknown to me, but it looked like the Gz would be at a disadvantage overall.

Perhaps they really were only interested in an honest fight.

Though, their methods were quite forceful…

“Thats right, Mr. Kyuji. What if you waited for them to all take position on the plateaus, and then you used a cloud to camp above them and sniped them all from there?”

“Are you…angry?”

“Im just joking. Lets fight them head-on…and defeat them.”

I wouldnt have believed it was a joke if things hadnt been so advantageous for us.

However, since they had given us such an advantage, we couldnt back down now.

This was a battle to protect our honor!
