《『Yosaku』has proposed a match! Do you accept? 》
I accept but.
Something strange starts happening before me.
Yosaku laid his hatchet onto the ground.
The shield and adze on his back was also laid onto the ground.
And also the knife on his belt too.
The battle field has not yet been deployed.
But you can already here cheers from the surrounding.
This means we will be fighting bare handed, right?
A few seconds till the battle start.
My weapon is Staff of Torture.
I put in on the ground.
And also the Tonfa on my back.
I know that his trying to provoke me.
But I am also interested.
Fighting bare handed.
I can’t suppress my excitement.
The battle has been concluded by judgment during the tournament.
There are things that both of us are not convinced with yet during the tournament.
But my interest right now is different.
How will this battle go?
We bow to each other.
And the count reaches 0.
《Battle start! 》
Both of us walk to the center of the field and take a stance.
But nothing happened after.
Was not used.
Was not used.
In order to confirm the intent, we gradually get closer.
There is no sign of weapon artes or spells being used.
I was thinking of using it, if he uses it.
It seems he would like to fight without using them.
I can’t use it.
And also weapons.
This is bad.
I did not think the battle would go this way.
A strange sense starts willing up.
Our waist lowered a bit.
This indicates the start of the real battle.
It seems the battle didn’t go the way I thought.
Is he really not going to use weapon artes?
What about spells?
What about weapons?
There was no sign of use.
If you look at the green marker, you can see there that no spell effects have been cast.
The sound that leaks from our mouths.
The sound of our fighting spirit.
And the sound of us hitting each other.
These are the sounds that I can only here right now.
My HP is decreasing.
I was in more trouble.
But the HP reduce dealt from each hit is obviously higher for me.
When you look at it.
There is neither punch or kick aiming for each of our core.
When you look at Yosaku’s movement you can know.
His looking for an opportunity to catch me.
His not using his fist.
But why is his jabbing doing so much damage?
It will be bad if this continues.
It’s clearly a trap.
But I have no choice but to go into it.
I cannot afford to make a feint.
I jumped at the moment I duck.
And a right hit to the body.
A direct hit.
But my wrist got grabbed.
Yosaku turned his body, and drop his waist.
Yosaku’s right hand went under my left arm and lifts it.
I can see.
From my field of vision Yosaku is stretching out his right foot.
And the next moment.
I was smashed on the ground.
What’s the damage?
What was that?
What will come next?
I was confused, but there’s a leg in front of my.
I went to grab the ankle.
My right was still grabbed and not released.
Yosaku’s upper body.
What will happen?
It’s a scarf hold.
Reflexively I raise my leg and hook onto Yosaku’s neck.
It will be great if I can counter using his neck.
If I can pull my hand out will be the second best.
If only I can get out of this scarf hold.
Ignoring my right arm, I forcibly try to cut his neck.
I know what will happen.
Although I could cut his neck, but I can’t manage to lock it.
I twist my body, and escape the scarf hold.
Yosaku use his free hand and perform another technique.
He holds my left leg that was cutting his neck.
Is he aiming for an ankle technique?
My right hand was released.
No, a crisis is approaching.
Yosaku is judo based.
There’s no ankle technique in judo.
It’s a foul.
It’s a foul technique, used in the past.
The previous hold down and using the dagger and fist to hit was also a clear foul.
But it’s effective.
The longer the time during hold down the more effective it gets.
By giving the opponent more time to hold you down, the more risk you have.
By having 30 seconds, you can be killed by cutting your throat with a dagger.
I kick Yosaku in the head when he is doing an ankle lock and pull out my right leg.
And went into jiu jitsu stance.
Yosaku too went into jiu jitsu stance.
The current battle is going at Yosaku’s pace.
No, it was my mistake to try fighting using judo with a real judo based opponent.
I got a little fed up.
What the hell am I doing!
I will take the lead this time.
I have no choice but to cover for my own mistakes.
My aim this time was the arms.
I’ll construct it like judo.
Because of this.
Yosaku pulled back and lunge at my arm.
Yosaku had his hand on my left shoulder.
I can’t turn my body.
But I had expected this from the beginning.
And twist his arm away from my body.
I’m not confident that I can beat him with my arms alone, so I held down his elbow with my left hand and threw him.
Or rather he just falls in his place.
But that’s enough.
My aim was a cross armlock.
When I thought I found an opportunity.
Yosaku’s arms were locked.
It’s a joint technique often used in judo.
It is natural that he went in to defense.
When I thought about putting in more power.
My body was floating.
What a power he has.
I turned and was placed in standstill.
Am I going to be dropped on to the ground?
I cancel my technique, and went back to jiu jitsu stance.
Soon after, a kick flew from Yosaku.
I somehow manage to drop my hip and blocked.
But Yosaku using kicks?
It’s the first time I am seeing today.
But is it because of my defense.
Our remaining HP was at the same level.
About 40% of our HP has been shaved.
I can see his eyes behind the leather helmet.
It wasn’t the color of surprise
It wasn’t the color of anger.
It was just opened.
And you can see the edge of his lip slightly hanging up.
Is he having fun?
I am also enjoying it.
It hurts though.
There is damage dealt onto both of us.
But we were both on equal standing.
There were also head butts.
And also standing joint locks.
He tries to do a wrist technique, but I ignore it and throw a punch.
I aim for an ankle lock.
I fall in place and continue with a ground work technique.
We stand and took some distance from each other.
I can’t decide what’s next.
I am confident with it.
However, I lose In terms of power.
There’s also a big difference in our physique,
Ground work technique works soberly, since it will be dangerous if I am thrown.
Since I am hitting from the ground and standing at the same time, it is hard to escape it.
But the battle didn’t go so well.
Both of us made a mistake.
He tries to get around by giving me a sidekick.
I gave a jump kick without trying to catch the sidekick.
My jump kick hit directly.
And also with the end of my foot.
But at the cost, I was caught by Yosaku.
I was slammed onto the ground while being caught.
The impact was serious.
Since my whole body was slammed.
I am not able to respond because of the impact.
I am going to be held down.
But it did not happen.
Yosaku seem to have lost consciousness.
《『Yosaku』 has become unable to battle.》
《Match end! Stop the battle! 》
Even though I won.
The difference in our HP is obvious.
I have about 20% left.
And Yosaku have about 30% left.
Our MP remains the same from the start.
Until the end, weapon artes, spells, and weapons was not used.
But I am not convinced.
The jump kick.
That attack wasn’t even planned!
It was just used on a whim.
I didn’t plan for it.
The battle field released.
At the same time, several players rush over to Yosaku.
Various skills leveled up.
「It was a great match!」
Behind me were Reina and Margrid.
When did they get here?
Fiona also put her hand on my shoulder.
「We will cast recovery on you.」
「Is it ok?」
「Well, you can just take it as a price for watching the match, right?」
The girls start casting the spell.
The 3 recovery spells made my HP completely full again.
How about Yosaku?
It seems he has recovered consciousness.
And is walking towards me.
His steps were balanced.
「It’s my complete defeat.」
「No, that last kick was a coincidence, no?」
「A loss is a loss.」
We shake hands.
There’s no need to go again.
Or rather scary.
My knowledge on skill has widened.
And his level is definitely lower than me.
Can I really say we are fighting on equal standing?
There is also difference in our equipment.
Bracelet of Torture.
And the Leg Ring of Torture.
If I didn’t have this.
The results may have been opposite.
And what if we had fought with our weapons.
I don’t feel like changing my battle style at the moment.
But there’s clearly a weakness.
To notice it must be the harvest from today battle.
I take it as that.
