enced this effect first hand.
Spark unleashed electricity in the area and Magnet Power pulled other sheep towards you.
What surprised me after using it was that Magnet Power affected all the sheep that were in the course.
So the distance between everyone was forcefully shrunk, which made things more chaotic.

Then there was the Gun Sheep, which was about as easy to understand as the Red Star Sheep.

・Gun Sheep
Skill: Vulcan
Charge Attack: Gatling Gun
Disturbance Resistance: Low
Characteristics: S gauge fills quickly
Overall, it’s abilities were average, but you could race aggressively.
But since the damage was low, you had to be able to shoot continuously while running.

A sheep with moderate speed and low resistance might sound weak, but the fact that the S gauge filled quickly meant it didn’t have to save its skills.
Vulcan shot bullets rapidly, but the Gatling Gun was even faster.
If two damage inflicting skills collided, then the strength of the rapid fire would win and erase the other.

The sheep that stuck out the most was the Mecha Sheep.
It was…

・Mecha Sheep
Skill: Missile
Charge Attack: Laser Beam
Disturbance Resistance: High
Characteristics: Highly capable but difficult to handle.
Good at disturbing and also withstanding attacks.
While fast, it’s bad at making sharp turns and the S gauge replenishes slowly.

Its skill was to launch a homing Missile, and Laser Beam was an odd attack that went right through the walls of light around the course and stretched straight out.
In other words, the laser could hit sheep that were way ahead on the course, and screw up the order.
I was hit by it twice.
Their high defense made them difficult to deal with, but when I used it myself, it didn’t feel too strong, which seemed to always be the case.
It was the fact that it reacted slowly to everything that made it hard to use.

Now, as for what sheep I ultimately chose… It was the Red Star Sheep.
The reason was that I could just concentrate on my own running.

At first, I had continued to ride on sheeps with powerful skills.
While racing, the thing that was the most threatening for me was attacks from my rivals.
And I thought that I couldn’t win unless I attacked them as well.

However, I realized that doing this meant that I was focusing on trying to attack them to a degree that I was slowing down.
But I was attacking them in order to pass them, so there would be no point if I had to slow down.

It’s much easier to hit a target if you’re not moving.
Just like with a bow, if the enemy was already moving, it would become even harder to hit them if I started moving as well.
And so I would stop.
Stop…and shoot!

But that wouldn’t work in a racing game.
In that case, it would be better to just not hit at all.
And so I was determined to ride the Red Star Sheep and rush through the track…!

The signal turned green.
It was the start of the race!

This track was the same as the first one.
One of the reasons that I didn’t get bored was that there were multiple tracks.
And since I was good at this particular one, I was aiming to place 3rd at the very least…!

That being said, I wouldn’t pressure myself.
I would fill up my gauges while grabbing hay rolls and stay in course.
I would drift at curves in order to make sharp turns.

And when the road was straight, I would use Super Dash.
I would use the skill where appropriate and always keep my gauge full enough to use Dash at least once.
This was that I could accelerate and recover what I lost if I was ever hit and ended up spinning.

In the end, I would be doing the same thing even when attacked.
Turn tight to decrease the distance as much as possible and accelerate at the right spot.

Fishing was about silence, and the race was about movement.
The two trials were like the exact opposite.
However, they were both a battle with yourself.
Do not get distracted by others and follow your instincts.

I can do it…!
There were two in front of me and the sheep in the back monitor were small.
At this distance, even Laser Beam and Magnet Power would not allow them to catch up…!

We dashed towards the goal.

The two in the lead got their first, and then I charged through as well.

–You placed 3rd! Congratulations!

While it was close…I had done it!
I finished the trial!

–Here is the bronze medal! You can go to Charin and trade it in for the medal and the reward!

A bronze medal was put around my neck.
…Perhaps it was rude to think this, but compared to gold and silver, bronze didn’t really put you in a celebratory mood.
It was the result of my efforts and a wonderful thing, but when I saw the player in front of me who rejoiced over their gold…I wanted one too.

Was it during the battle royale?
When I started to think that I wouldn’t be satisfied unless I was number one…

Once everyone reached the goal, we were automatically returned to the field.
I just needed to hand Charin the bronze medal and my goal was complete…

“I want to enter the race!”

No, I wouldn’t feel like I cleared it unless I got 1st place!
I would win with my Red Star Sheep!

◆ ◆ ◆

Ultimately, I was able to get 1st place.
As I had already cleared it with the bronze medal, it felt like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders.
And so I was able to complete a perfect run and win before reaching the double digits in the number of races.


I shouted a little childishly.
Speed really did change people.

After returning to the field, I took pictures with the medal around my neck and even bit it when no one was looking.
Besides, I had never in my life received a gold medal.
Many other people were receiving gold medals, as it was an event, but I was still happy.

Now I was supposed to hand it over to Charin…but it was a little sad to have to part with it right away.
It won’t be coming back either.
And so I wanted to hold onto it for a little longer.

I had become too absorbed, and now there were stars shining in the sky.
…I’ll keep the medal for now and log out.
Then I’ll give it to her tomorrow.
It’s not like it’ll make a difference, but…

I raised the medal so that it was next to the Aries constellation in the night sky.
I had overcome another trial.
There were now five remaining…!
