Chapter 153: The Brothers’ Talent
Five days later. hokkaido ‘white dungeon’–
It’s been a long time since I’ve been above ground.
Louis comes out of the domed facility that manages the dungeon and shields his right hand from the brilliant sunlight.
There are lights in the dungeon, but they are different from those on the ground, Louis thought again.
The expected overseas Seekers have already arrived. We’ll join them.
Tennoji walks up behind him and Louis says “Yes! Tennoji replies with a strong “Yes! Tennoji smiles with satisfaction at the expression on Louie’s face as he looks tougher than before.
Taizen starts to complain about Tennoji.
“But it’s still a bit much to endure a month of diving in the White Dungeon.”
“That’s all you got, isn’t it?”
Tennoji replies with a grin.
“Well. So, did you get Louis’ sword?”
“Oh, I got a text from Tanabe. He finished it two days ago. He wants you to come get it.”
“Huh? He’s a big guy.
Yasumae’s face is distorted. Misaki Brewell, who was standing next to him, interrupts.
“Do you really think you can defeat the black armor with that sword? Tennouji.”
“… Louis has grown up. I’m sure he can use second level magic now. If you still can’t defeat the black armor… there’s no way to defeat him.”
The faces of those present clouded over. But Tennoji looked up and answered cheerfully.
“Well, there’s no point in thinking about that now! Let’s hurry back to Tokyo and join the other Seekers.
Yasumae laughs and Misaki says, “Okay.” Misaki smiles.
Tennoji and the others returned to the hotel and immediately began to prepare for their return.
Tokyo Otemachi, El-Seed Head Office Bldg.
Overseas Seeker Clans and top-ranking domestic Seeker Clans had gathered in the main hall. In front of the rows of Seekers, the general manager of El-Seed, Mr. Honda, took the stage.
“Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for gathering here. My name is Honda from El-Seed. Today, I’d like to…
Ishikawa looks around from the edge of the stage as Honda greets the audience.
There are some ‶ofanim″ from the UK and some German explorer clans, but some foreign groups did not come to the venue.
Seeker Seekers are a selfish bunch. That’s the image people have of Seekers… but perhaps that’s more true of foreign Seekers.
Ishikawa thought and let out a small sigh.
Then, out of the corner of his eye, he sees a clan of Japanese explorers. I recognized them as the explorers of Famail, a major Japanese search group, but I was curious about one of them.
Skinny guy with a hood.
But he carries a large white bag on his shoulder, which is out of keeping with his figure.
The fact that it’s taller than he is indicates that it’s some kind of [magic-imparting weapon], but I’ve never seen a weapon that big, even in Ishikawa.
As Ishikawa stared at him, he caught a glimpse of the man’s face.
Honda and the other members of El-Seed explained the guidelines for defeating the ‶Black Armor‶ in the future and confirmed the placement of the explorer clans in each country, and the meeting came to an end.
As people leave the hall one after another, Ishikawa calls out to a man.
The hooded man turns and looks at Ishikawa.
“Ah! It’s Mr. Ishikawa, isn’t it?
You’re a Seeker Seeker now?
“Oh, yeah. Life is strange. I never used to be interested in Seeker Seekers. I guess it’s fate.”
Ishikawa looks at Tennoji Akito, who pulls down his hood and smiles, and makes an indescribable face.
“You have been summoned to the home of the Clan Familiar… Are you a member of the clan?
“Oh yeah… I’ve been through a lot and now I’m a member of the number one explorer clan in Familiar… Rosario. Isn’t that great?”
“It’s… Well, that’s great.
The same old aloof attitude. In the past, when Ishikawa met the Tennoji brothers, he was more interested in this younger brother…
I sensed an even stronger talent in Akito Tennoji.
But I was still in middle school. I said, “Are you interested in becoming an explorer?” he said, “No!” he said.
Akito is right in front of you as the Seeker. Ishikawa opened his mouth emotionally.
“Your brother’s in Hokkaido now, but I got word he’ll be back soon. Why don’t you meet him when he comes to Tokyo?”
“No, no, no. Mr. Ishikawa, you know my brothers don’t get along, right? There’s nothing to talk about now.”
Akito went to go out, but stopped halfway and turned around.
Mr. Ishikawa. Can you tell my brother one thing?
Akito’s mouth relaxes into a grin.
You lost the Black Armor. I’m the one who’s going to beat you.
El-Seed’s laboratory is located in Koto-ku, Tokyo. Louis and Tennoji came to this facility as soon as they returned to Tokyo.
Tanabe leads us to the lab on the second basement floor.
“I’ve already finished the sword, but I’ll have to ask Amazawa to test it out to see if it’s actually usable. If there are any problems, I’ll make adjustments each time.”
Tanabe opened the door with his keycard. In the center of the room is a silver stand with a sword on it.
Louis steps into the room and stops in front of a table.
The sword in front of you is emitting a different level of magic power than the [magic-granting armament] you’ve been using up to now.
Louis reaches out his hand fearfully.
I picked up the scabbard and handle, and when I lifted it, it felt more comfortable in my hand than I had expected.
Take it out.
Louis nodded in agreement with Tanabe’s words.
He slowly drew his sword and it suddenly blinked and burst into flames. Louis didn’t put any magic into it. The sword itself reacted to his magic and burst into flames.
“This is… Burning Sword Zero!”
The sword is covered in a magical power of fire.
That sounds good.
Tanabe nodded in satisfaction. But Tennoji’s brow wrinkles as he sees the burning sword.
“Hey Tanabe, isn’t the fire magic too strong on earth?”
Tanabe answered Tennoji’s question in a bored tone.
“Oh, I see. In the month you’ve been diving in the White Dungeon, we’ve been releasing a lot more mana. There’s enough mana in the Kanto region right now for the lower levels of the dungeon.”
“The lower levels of the dungeon?”
Tennoji can’t help but ask back.
–How could you leak that much in such a short period of time?
There are rumors that ‶mana‛is being released not only from the dungeon but also from the ground, and that might be possible if it happens this fast.
When Tennoji was thinking about that… Tanabe’s voice said.
You look up and see four Seekers walking toward you from the door at the far end of the room. They are dressed in white battle suits and carry swords, spears, and other weapons.
“These are my opponents for the simulation. They’re all Water Magic users and have around 2000 mana.”
The men surrounded Louis, each with a weapon.
