Many Marines and guards looked at the confrontation in the sky and felt horrible.
When Roja’s blade swept away, the flames filled the sky which shocked most people.
The only one who can be calm is only Magellan.
Since it can not be stopped, he can only watch the fight, and if there is anything unexpected, he will stop it before something big happens.
Magellan can only know Roja’s strength through the newspapers and the intelligence, but he didn’t know exactly how strong the latter was, and now seeing Roja and Shiliew fight, he could only nod his head secretly.
Roja’s strength was indeed close to Shiliew’s, if he wants to win over him, then that would be extremely impossible.
On the other hand, Magellan understood Shiliew’s power better than anyone.
Looking at the fire moving toward him, Shiliew waved his sword and split the flames in two.
At the same time, he moved in the air and threw a kick at Roja.
Rankyaku! (Tl: the kick from the Rokushiki.)
This kick was powerful not any inferior to a sword energy attack, this attack flew toward Roja.
Roja waved his sword and stopped the energy, Roja didn’t try to learn this technique at all, he was only proficient in Soru and Moonwalk.
And he already mastered the two into a satisfying degree.
“It’s about time, the warm-up is over!”
Roja stood in the air, his eyes were ignited, he turned the sword toward the ground and let it go.
“Bankai, Senbonzakura Kageyoshi!”
Against someone like Shiliew, Roja didn’t want to play around and use the Shikai, so he directly used the Bankai, he’s going all out.
However, the moment Shiliew saw Roja drop his sword, he felt weird but still attacked.
Shiliew was bloodthirsty, even if Roja was a Vice-admiral, he will not show any mercy, Even if Roja died, he didn’t care.
Although it’s a spar…
In a fight, injuries are inevitable!
Shiliew’s face held a cold expression.
But, He was surprised to see that Roja retreated a little bit while a rippling appeared out of nowhere, suddenly numerous swords emerged from the void, directly turning into petals and blocked Shiliew’s attack.
“What is this?”
Shiliew looked at the cherry petals that appeared out of nowhere, but he didn’t hesitate and used Busoshoku to defend himself.
After just a little observation, Shiliew knew that those petals were like small sized blades, and once he was touched by one, unless he used Haki he will be ripped to pieces.
When Senbonzakura Kageyoshi is out, the situation suddenly turned around.
Originally, Shiliew thought that he had the upper hand, he thought he was stronger than Roja, Even though Roja’s Getsuga Tensho was strong, but it didn’t have any effect on Shiliew.
But now facing the cherry petals, Shiliew didn’t know what kind of ability this was so he directly retreated.
“So pretty, Is this a devil fruit ability?”
“This forced Shiliew-sama to retreat, it seems that those cherry petals are really dangerous.
A lot of guards looked at this scene while their eyes revealed their shock.
Even Magellan’s expression became more serious.
“He got something that allows him to make a strike stronger than Shiliew, his sword can release flames and also can break into these cherry petals, such strange abilities… Is this the origin of the name ‘Ghost Sword Roja’?”
He wouldn’t have pay any attention to the fight if he wasn’t afraid of those abilities.
Even if his poisonous dragon or any other trick were launched toward Roja, those cherry petals would break the attack or even cut it apart.
“At this rate, Shiliew has to go all out too.”
Shiliew was forced to retreat, his eyes were cold as he waved his sword while rotating, in an instant, numerous shadows appeared.
The trick is fast movement and also a higher level of Tobu Zangeki.
For Mihawk, his swordplay was equivalent to millions of swords, with only a sword strike, he can make a gally in the sky and cut it in half.
After attaining such a high level, Swordplay would become like a battle of tactics, with unbelievable power.
As Shiliew kept moving his swords, The cherry petals beside him burst open, suddenly he moved really fast toward Roja.
At this moment, Shiliew while person seemed to turn into a sword, he was full of killing intent, It gave the illusion of a bloody battle.
“This is really fast!”
Roja saw that Shiliew speed improved, this time Shiliew will probably go all out, So Roja also used his Kenbunshoku and Haoshoku this time, he reached his hand and a sword formed from the petals.
The two collided in the air.
Shiliew proved that he is worthy to be nearing the Grandmaster swordsmen, While using his peak power and speed, he could resist most of Roja’s moves.
Shiliew and Roja had the same fighting style, There defenses are much weaker than Jack’s, but the attack is much stronger than even Doflamingo.
Chapter 169: Defeating Shiliew
Most people who have the strength of Quasi-Admiral would have strong points and weak points, like Jack who got defense but not much in the attack, and Shiliew with his speed and attack power and low defenses.
Between that kind of people, it’s hard to know who is stronger.
Roja was still fighting Shiliew, who will come out as the winner we will have to wait and see.
Roja used Getsuga Tensho then the sword turned into Cherry petals and attacked Shiliew who used his speed to cut the petals, his figure was flashing.
