KNW - Chapter 189

Konjiki no Wordmaster Chapter 189: Freely wielding the mutual war potential


Hiiro was staring in astonishment at the high-level duel unfolding before his eyes.


「Hou, and I even questioned that lass.」(Lily) ((小娘 → also “young girl”, adolescent female in general. But as it is Lily talking … I needed something more insulting. Just sayin’, as it is used repeatedly here.))


 Even Lilyin seemed to be rejudging Eveam after she showed power far beyond her expectations.


「Well, even if just temporarily, she is the Maou. I guess that much is naturally.」(Hiiro)
「Kukuku, and I was imagining the figure of that lass to be trampled down by the Beast King, but in the contrary, she really surprised me with even being able to use combined magic.」


 He was indifferent as she said such scary words, but the phrase combined magic burdened his mind.


「Don’t you know? Just some time ago that lass was bound to bed after combining fire and wind magic.」(Lilyin)
「Hou, so that’s combined magic.」(Hiiro)
「In order to successfully cast combined magic, you have to equally control both magic’s power. Moreover, to sufficiently control the fusion and compatibility of magic, you’d have to pursue considerably precise control over your magic power.」(Lilyin)
「I see, and I also observed the power level raising to a remarkable different height.」(Hiiro)
「Yeah, in case of success it will probably be several times as powerful. But in the case of a failure, you get a spontaneous outburst. Using it in the opening, she must have quite some confidence in her magic power control.」(Lilyin)
「Even though I read in a book that the definition of ‘Maou’ is originally ‘the 『Evila』s King’, in reality it should additionally also include the strength of one named King.」 (Hiiro)


 Agreeing, they nodded several times.


「The young girl as well, but that Gabranth prince is also to be considered.」(Mikazuki)
「Yeah, there is no wastefulness in his use of the 《Binding》. Well done, I guess.」(Shamoe)
「However, the Beast King’s utilization of his 《Binding》 is as brutal as ever, especially if you see that prince’s struggle in the fight over there. Is it just me…… Or is the Prince somewhat weak in the presence of the Beast King’s strength?」(Mika)
「Seems so.」(Shammy)


 Here, in Nikki’s eyes the shape of nearby Mikazuki was reflected. Whilst Nikki’s eyes were fixated on the fight and she even forgot to blink, Mikazuki was chatting with Shamoe as if the duel held no interest for her.


 It was obvious from her demeanor that Nikki was itching to fight herself. Even though she was definitely a human being, she seemed to have an interest in belligerent, or should I say, strong persons.


 Besides, she was raised by monsters. That she might behave differently if raised in a human environment might be a good example.


 Thereupon, he shifted his gaze towards the crater again. He had already checked the 《Status》 of Marione and Leowald. Using 『Pry』, he confirmed the other two’s strength as well. 覗

 Eveam’s MP were indeed befitting her. She could be proud of its considerably height. And then this amount of attributes. Certainly, normally it was one attribute per person, it was even rare to have two or three. ((And the heroes, having four, are considered “legendary class” XD))


 Notwithstanding that, she was at a completely different level. She carried all seven attributes other than light within the ability categorization. Moreover, as she even used combined magic, he could probably expect some more tricks from her.


(It’s a good thing she is able to increase the width of fighting ways to that extent.)(Hiiro)


 The opponent being compatible, it would be disadvantageous to use your only and hardly effective attribute. But as she was holding that many attributes, she was at the advantage as she could choose her attribute in accordance to the opponent’s attacks.


(That Beanpole Prince seems to be hiding his true strength as well.) ((ヒョロッ – “thin and tall” – hence beanpole.))


 He thought what he saw was Regulus starting to use 《Conversion》. By the way, as Regulus appearance was thin and tall in person, he named him Beanpole Prince.


(Now that the mutual opening phase ended, this is going to get intense…… No, it’s clearly visible that the Maou and her mongrel are going to be at disadvantage if this is prolonged unnecessarily.)((he doesn’t say “mongrel”, but I’m getting creative with the suffix “-tachi”.))


 Marione had recovered at first glance, but not considering his fatigue would be a mistake. Naturally, they would be at disadvantage when the match was prolonged any more. For this reason, the Maou and her companion had to settle this in a brief but decisive battle.


(Who will launch first now……)(Hiiro)


 Hiiro awaited the four people’s near future with great interest.







 Marione suddenly spread his wings and ascended into the sky. Thereafter, in order to join him, black wings emerged from Eveam’s back as she soared into the sky as well.


 Wary of the two people, Leowald and Regulus followed them with their eyes, putting themselves on guard.


 Eveam suddenly stopped in mid-air, losing her eyes as she clapped her hands.


「Mh? I don’t know what you’re planning, but moving first won’t help you!」(Leo)


 Leowald jumped upwards into Eveam’s direction. But in front of him, Marione blocked his way.


「Out of my way, Marione!」(Leo)
「You’ll have to pass me if you want to proceed!」(Mari)


 As Marione waved the mantle he was wearing –


「Black Ash!」(Mari)


 A black mist thing was erupting from Marione’s body, dyeing the environment with darkness in the blink of an eye.


「That sort of thing!」(Leo)


 Although he tried to remove it with his hand’s momentum –


「Whoa!? What’s that?! It wraps around my body!?」(Leo)


 Really, the fog covered around the fist he wielded as if it was alive. Then, suddenly a voice was heard out of nowhere.


「I am the very darkness itself. As soon as you enter this world of darkness, your movements are sealed!」(Mari)


 He didn’t feel any pain from the darkness wrapped around his body, but a feeling of gradually becoming heavier run though his body. And as Regulus was worried as Leowald, grasped by the darkness, didn’t fall down but remained in the air, he tried to hit it with 《Water Fang》, but it was completely repelled.


 Thus in Eveam came into his field of view, releasing terrific amounts of concentrated magical power from her body.


「Oh Darkness that dwells in the Abyss of the Beginning……」(Eve)


 The red gems fitted into the earrings and bracelets Eveam was wearing were emitting a suspicious light. Apparently they responded to Eveam’s aria.


「Oh God of Death, Bringer of Chaos in Dark Hours, Destroyer of the All-creation, I summon thy fragment of power upon me……」(Eve) ((changed it a little bit. Damn prayer’s hard to translate.))


 As she slowly raised her hands towards the skies, as she made a gesture as if to grab something with her hand –


「Pierce hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiim!」(Eve)


 From within the fog Leowald, pitch-black dyed, assaulted her. As Eveam caught her breath and hastily evaded to the left in order to avoid his attack –


 Bushu! (SFX)

 Blood spurted from her right wing as Leowald hit it. ((So I guess she was disrupted? And I thought he was restricted… “Binding” attack?))


「Urgh!」(Eve)


 Eveam’s face was distorted in pain as she fell to the ground. Eveam, without doubt going to slam into the ground at this rate, desperately moved her severely hurting wings to prepare her landing.


 The black fog that almost stopped Leowald’s movements in the sky left his body. And as it formed a shape, it transformed into Marione. Apparently the fog itself was Marione. ((You don’t say.))


「Your Majesty!」(Mari)


 He returned to his original form in order to immediately rush to Eveam. As Leowald also fell from the sky to the earth again, Regulus turned up nearby.
