Chapter 143: Final Round – Without a Fight
Saito Junichi is not a fighter.
Of course, that’s not to say he can’t fight. Rather, for several years, the youth trained quite extensively in the art of combat so as to be able to handle himself should a situation ever arise.
And, while he wasn’t exactly as gifted as others who were blessed with talents such as monstrous strength, one could definitely say that he possessed enough skill to tango with the best of them.
Nevertheless, even though he possesses a modicum of proficiency in the field of brawling, that is not where his true skills lie.
Or rather, the skills of the mercenary 『Gun』 could never be described by something as shallow as being good at punch outs.
No. His profession is clearly geared towards a different facet of strength. A unique skill set that only someone of his occupation could ever produce. Continue reading
Chapter 142: Final Round – The Start of the Hunt
「Round 3! Start!」
Without a moment to spare, the beginning of the third and final round of the faction war was declared.
As each faction had one win under their belts, there was undoubtedly a peculiar tension rising amongst the entire school.
Whether it be the students, staff, sponsors, visitors, or the competitors themselves; all of them had been infected by this sensation which clung insidiously onto the surrounding atmosphere.
Of course, no one could explain exactly what had shrouded the campus of the prestigious 【Phoenix Gakuen】.
Yet, it was abundantly clear that this next match was one that requires one’s undivided attention.
And so, with an enthusiastic roar from the crowd, the final round began. Continue reading
Chapter 141: An Upset
As Miura Kaede was rejoicing over her victory, she, Kinoshita Arata, and Miyazawa Mana had completely neglected another variable in this war.
A variable that Saito Junichi and Hitomi Shiori dared not to forget whilst laying out their plans.
A single girl of navy blue, her hair bundled into a ponytail that was noticeably absent throughout a majority of the Faction War.
Now, it wasn’t important about where she was or what she’d been doing as her allies were engaged in their conflicts against formidable enemies.
What was important was that, thanks to her absence, no one was wary of where she was or what she was doing. Continue reading
Chapter 140: Black and Blue – Gone with the Wind
Miyazaki Sora was often thought to be an idiot.
Ok. So she was an idiot.
She wasn’t very smart, nor was she very good at academics.
She was quite careless, and sometimes had trouble thinking about the big picture.
However, just because she wasn’t book smart, didn’t mean she was unintelligent.
Rather, having to create her own training regimen to keep her body in tip-top condition, as well as formulating a diet that would allow her to bring out the best in herself, she could be considered quite the capable individual.
Now, while this didn’t eliminate the fact that she practically fails almost every academic test that she’s forced to participate in, this hidden intelligence influenced other things about the athlete’s personality. Continue reading
Chapter 139: Loyalty and Devotion
-Shortly after the duo of black and blue had separated from the group of survivors-
「……Ojou-sama. It would appear that Sora-sama and Saito-sama have left.」
Kinoshita Arata calmly spoke thus, relaying his astute observations to his mistress of honey blond.
Yet, contrasting his peaceful atmosphere, as usual, the pompous, bratty queen grew agitated, biting her fingernails as she threw another one of her mini-tantrums. Continue reading
Chapter 138: Black and Blue – When the Hurricane Rages
A sporty teenager with light blue hair who was No. 3 in the school’s ranking system.
The girl dubbed as the 『Hurricane』, and an object of admiration for all.
Boasting a personality as bright as the clear blue sky, this young woman was expected to become a star olympian upon graduation, especially by her peers and rivals who were overwhelmingly impressed by her athletic prowess.
However, although many held positive thoughts towards the young girl, there was no doubt that a certain subsection of the student body shared a certain sentiment.
The sentiment that Sora was a true freak of nature. Continue reading
Chapter 137: Black and Blue – When the Wind Changes
「Hehe~ How do I look, Saito-kun?」
A chipper voice resounded through the city of grey, prompting Saito Junichi to crane his neck whilst looking over his shoulder.
A young girl with a toned figure entered his eyes, her skin tanned ever so slightly by the countless of hours she undoubtedly spent basking in the sun. With a set of pearly whites, crystalline blue hair and cheeky grey eyes, it needn’t be said that Miyazaki Sora was looking as lively and energetic as ever.
With that being said, however, it was clear that something was different about her. Continue reading
