The elite camp members and other people all turned to look at Roja who was entering the field.
They thought about how Smoker passed the seventh level and was defeated at the eighth. Those people had hope that Roja will pass the eight and the ninth like the current Admirals.
Not only them, but Even Garp, Z, Aokiji, Kisaru and even Sengoku were also paying attention in the field.
To be more precise, even Akainu raised his hat to look at the area.
This was too eye-catching.
Countless people were concerned about Roja while Roja entered the field.
Looking at the audience, Roja noticed Aokiji, Kisaru, Garp and the others. He felt like he did see this somewhere. Then he remembered when Whitebeard come to save ace the entire headquarter was facing him.
Yamakaji looking at Roja standing there couldn’t help but reveal how much he looked forward to this moment. He raised his mouth into a smile then said.
“Monkey.D.Roja, Third stage of the Graduation exam, First level start.”
With Yamakaji’s words, Roja’s first enemy entered the field.
Facing his first opponent, Roja didn’t even pull out his sword. He just threw a punch randomly, and the man was sent out of the field.
For the next five levels Roja did the same and only used his hands, but on the fifth level, he used a little bit of Busoshoku Haki. When he did that most of the people, who didn’t know about him using Haki where surprised.
“Fifth level Pass, Do you need to rest ?”
Yamakaji after seeing Roja punching out his opponent with a little bit of Haki nodded his head.
In the third stage of the exam, there are ten levels. After each level, there are ten minutes of rest. You can choose to relax, or you can decide to continue.
(Tl: I was wrong about this I think I said ten people against one but it turned out like this.)
Roja shook his head. All the previous opponents were too weak, so basically, with a casual wave of his hand he sends one out.
“Finally if you can pass the sixth level then you can be considered as a graduate.”
The elite camp recruits all had their eyes flashing when they looked at the field. They stayed at the elite camp with Z for two years to pass that sixth level.
“Well then, In the sixth level your opponent is … Lieutenant Commander, Comoros”
After Yamakaji finished talking, Comoros was already on the field.
Comoros still wanted to win.
IF he was to capture a pirate, then he will get about a million. But if he could beat a recruit in the graduation exam then he will get several times of that.
The ax was falling, and the most important thing is that Haki around it.directly used Soru and rushed to Roja with his ax.
“Comoros could already use Haki?”
“Very good, But it seems he can’t use hardening yet.”
Roja noticed the Haki too, and his eyes flashed.
“You can use Haki ?”
Roja looked at the Haki around the ax and decided to use his sword not his fist anymore.
His sword was instantly out of its scabbard.
Comoros ax was split in two. One of the two halves was sent flying away and hit the ground far from them.
Comoros body instantly stiffened. His back was full of cold sweat, and his heart turned cold.
Although he saw how powerful Roja was in the previous five fight, he didn’t think that he would be this strong just by pulling his sword.
Is the gap between us that huge?
“I surrender …”
Comoros directly threw in the towel.
Seeing Comoros throwing the towel, Roja looked at him and nodded slightly. He returned the sword and looked at Yamakaji.
“I can take the next one.”
For Roja to cut Comoros ax after pulling his sword wasn’t surprising for most people who knew Roja. Because even if Comoros used that little bit of Haki, He wasn’t Roja’s opponent who mastered Hardening already.
Yamakaji nodded and announced the beginning of the Seventh level.
“The seventh level, Your opponent is … a pirate being held on the fifth level of the prison, Di Ross!”
“Two years ago he was caught and defeated in the new world by The G6 division. The captain of the Diro Pirates with a bounty of 193 million berries!”
After Yamakaji Finished talking, a prisoner with handcuffs came forward. Beside him, a lieutenant opened his handcuffs when he got on the field.
“If I kill that bastard, Will you free me ?”
Looking around, Di Ross already knew he wouldn’t be able to escape. After saying this, the lieutenant said
The lieutenant said this while looking coldly at Di Ross.
In fact, everyone present knew that him being released is impossible. But the lieutenant said that only to let Di Ross have a little fighting spirit.
“Hey … Hey … I know that you’re lying to me. You guys won’t simply let me leave. But since I was confined for two years, It’s finally time to move a little. So I will accompany that kid to play a little.”
Di Ross said with a smile. His eyes were bloodshot.
He can’t escape anyway. So no matter what happens it won’t get worse than it is. It would be better to capture the kid and directly cut his neck if the others wanted to rescue him.
This guy didn’t need to wait until the beginning of the match. He directly rushed toward Roja like a storm.
Before he got too close to Roja His whole person turned into a ball, then he transformed. He got a Devil fruit. That is a Zoan fruit… Tiger fruit.
Chapter 78: SilverBack Ape king
“Go to hell!”
Di Ross rushed toward Roja with his fists turning black. He can use Hardening.
He possessed great power. Even Smoker and the others looking at this were shocked.
If Smoker were the one fighting Di Ross, perhaps he wouldn’t have any chance to win.
But, the one facing Di Ross was Roja.
Roja instantly used his sword. Black color started to surround the sword as it formed the Hardening.
Di Ross fist directly hit Roja’s blade. The airwaves were visible to the naked eye as they were moving all around.
Roja was standing in his original position, and after the waves disappeared, he took one step back.
“The Zoan devil fruit has high ability indeed. This one’s power isn’t small too.”
Roja looked at Di Ross indifferently.
When Roja was facing Marine opponents his attitude toward them was good. But against a pirate, his killing intent was up and was looking at him coldly.
“Impossible! He only took a step back !!”
Di Ross’s face revealed the extent of his shock. He just punched out with all he got without saying a thing. He Hit Roja’s sword and was waiting for him to collapse due to internal injuries directly.
But he didn’t expect that not only did Roja not collapse but he even only took a small step back.
Roja compared to him was a young boy. HE found it incredible that such a small body could hold this much strength.
“This is my turn then!”
Roja looked indifferently at Di Ross and swung his sword.
The sword fell which made the air seem moving away from it. The sword felt like it’s passing through the void. The sword fell on Di Ross.
This sword didn’t produce energy. All there was in it is the Haki and the power of Roja’s swing.
Di Ross could guess the power of the sword. He wanted to escape, but because the distance was too close, it was already late. So he put up his arm while using hardening on them to receive the strike directly.
Roja’s sword cut through Di Ross arms and cut them even though The latter was using Haki.
Di Ross Roared in pain as he tried to escape. He forgot that he was in the Marine headquarters.
In the next moment, Roja took a step and disappeared. He appeared behind Di Ross.
This sound was produced by the sword returning to its scabbard.
On Di Ross body appeared a clear line with blood stains. His eyes still had the horror he faced before he died.
“The Seventh Level, Pass.”
Roja was fast to end this round which made many people in the audience shocked. The strength, speed, swordsmanship, and Haki that Roja displayed were extremely powerful!!
Strength, speed, Haki, swordsmanship.
Most people only had one or two and weren’t weak. Roja had all four; This wasn’t as simple as one plus one equal two.
Roja’s show of strength had exceeded the expectations of Most people here.
Yamakaji took a deep breath, he looked at the next opponent on the list then exposed a strange look.
“The eighth level, your opponent will be … A giant monster, The SilverBack ape king.”
(Tl: SBAK for short.)
The opponent was extremely different from the one who faced Smoker a while ago. Smoker faced a lieutenant commander, and Roja was to face … A giant Monster.
“Monkey King ?”
Roja looked while surprise was apparent on his face. He couldn’t help but remember the ape he killed in the first exam. It seems this one is called SBAK. It should be much stronger than the other one.
“This SBAK was captured by the G2 division in the new world. It took more than three captains to subdue it and transport it here.”
“Roja you have to be careful. This big guy isn’t easy to deal with.”
Yamakaji reminded Roja and then turned to look.
You could see him looking at the SBAK which was being suppressed. Four people were leading it to the field.
A massive body with explosive muscles power. There is no doubt this will cause trouble to even the elite of the Marine.
The crowd of the elite camp heard about the SBAK and couldn’t help but suck in cold air.
They were the Elite of the Marine; Even when facing pirates, they won’t be horrified. But the SBAK far from just the look, He emitted a strong sense of oppression.
“I didn’t think that Roja’s eighth level would be this hard. It’s even more challenging than the previous ones … I believe that it’s difficult for him to reach the tenth maybe even the ninth level.”
The same Master from before said solemnly. If it were Smoker fighting, he would hold the advantage with his Smoke ability. Because this SBAK can’t-do a thing to a logia type devil fruit.
But Roja wasn’t a devil fruit user.
And fighting such a big guy is not okay.
“Are you ready ?”
Because Roja’s eighth opponent is a Monster. Yamakaji was looked at Roja and said solemnly.
