On the other side, Hinagiku, Shokuhou Misaki, Kinuhata Saiai, Frenda, and Takitsubou Rikou teamed up against a level 70 demonic beast, the tier 8 Longarm Ape .
Shokuhou Misaki and Takitsubou Rikou stood behind the front line as they observed the Longarm ape standing on a tree branch some distance away . Frenda is in charge of protecting Takitsubou Rikou and Shokuhou Misaki . She had her hands in the pockets of her skirt, ready to deploy her explosives whenever the situation arises . Hinagiku and Kinuhata Saiai stood in a horizontal formation against the Longarm ape .
The level 74 Longarm ape needed more patience . When it saw the level 70 Longarm ape being targeted by Hinagiku & co, it tried to stand out and attack them . Before it can take any action, heavy oppression fell on it without any warning, freezing the creature in its place .
The level 74 ape looked back and saw the one giving him a deep sense of crisis .
Still holding Flandre-chan’s hands, Wu Yan stood there with an unflinching gaze . Taking no other action, he looked cool as a cucumber but the level 74 ape froze up nonetheless .
It’s like a giant beast standing in a huge sea of blood is currently gazing at it, baring its malevolent fangs at it . The ape’s instinct told it that the moment it tried to hurt the girls would be the moment it’s going to be buried in one savage attack .
Not daring to take another step forward, Wu Yan kept most of his attention on the level 74 ape while diverting some of his attention to observe Hinagiku & co’s fight .
While Wu Yan and his chosen foe stood in a stalemate, Hinagiku, Shokuhou Misaki, Frenda, Takitsubou Rikou, and Kinuhata Saiai stared the level 70 ape down .
Unlike Wu Yan who is taking care of Flandre-chan while pressuring his enemy, this staredown competition didn’t last long .
Kinuhata Saiai is the first one to raise a fist and congeal a hard wall of air . She attracted the attention of the enemy .
Opening her eyes, a massive stream of air coiled around her fists . She punched the air and an air fist flew at the Longarm ape .
The ape jumped out like a bolt of lightning .
The two of them broke the silence of the battlefield .
The Longarm ape easily dispersed the air fist with its violent technique . It swiftly begun its counterattack on Kinuhata Saiai .
Takitsubou Rikou reacted quickly and used her cheat-like ability on her comrade .
Kinuhata Saiai felt a surge of something and she sneered . She stepped back and an air cushion propelled her backward as she retreated .
Hinagiku who was standing beside Kinuhata Saiai struck out with her crystal sword, leaving a trail of pink lightning in its wake . It headed straight for the Longarm ape .
The ape shrieked as it revealed a grin . Changing the momentum of its attack, it clashed against Hinagiku’s Shirosakura .
Meat and metal met but the sound of metal grinding together resounded in the area . The reaction force entered Hinagiku’s hands and it quickly numbed her . She was also sent back by a few steps as confusion and slight shock appeared on her face .
She didn’t expect the Longarm ape to be so sturdy that it can actually defend against sharp weapons with its bare hands . Not to mention, the beast sent her back with pure strength . No wonder it couldn’t use magic, it probably traded all its magical potential for more physical development .
It shocked Hinagiku but that’s only to the point of ending her plan of fighting brute force with the beast . Without panicking, she straightened her body and she lunged at the beast who couldn’t recover its stance in time so it chose to retreat instead .
This Longarm ape isn’t going to take this lying down . It’s a tier 8 demonic beast and even if it’s not as smart as a tier 8 human, at the very least, it knew its way around a fight with tier 7 enemies . It whipped its long arms at Hinagiku .
Hinagiku’s eyes flashed and she saw this attack coming even if she couldn’t steady herself in time to defend against it . In no time at all, this attack arrived .
The fists didn’t land on its targets . Everybody heard it, including the stupefied ape who couldn’t’ believe its eyes . Its mind went blank trying to figure out how it actually missed and struck the ground near Hinagiku’s legs .
Of course, this is Shokuhou Misaki’s handiwork .
When it recovered, it was already too late, a stream of charged air blew by the Longarm apes’ flank . It exploded as if it was waiting for this moment!
Kinuhata Saiai’s Nitrogen Armor-enhanced fist struck the soft spot on the Longarm ape’s belly . Unable to dodge or advance, the Longarm ape spewed blood as the attack forcefully dislodged the ape’s arm from the ground .
Hinagiku took this chance to steady herself . A cold glint appeared in her eyes, instead of a piercing motion, she used a slash to add on more damage on the ape who got sent into a tree, heavily crashing down on the floor .
Without a chance to recover, a strange-looking doll fell from the tree and into the ape’s chest .
Grabbing the doll without thinking about it, the ape noticed the doll’s dreadful expansion that correlated with the increasing intensity of impending doom rising within its guts .
Shrieking out of sheer terror, it tried to throw the doll as far away as possible but a weird signal appeared out of nowhere that forced its arms to hug the doll instead of a throwing motion .
A large explosion engulfed the ape who was hugging the explosive doll . A stream of similar dolls fell into the flower of flames, sparking more explosions . Inside the explosions, one could vaguely hear the death throes of the poor Longarma pe .
When the flames and explosions stopped, only a charred corpse remained to remind anyone that a Longarm ape was here .
Their cooperation was seamless, impeccable and horrifyingly effective .
Under the cooperation of all 5 combatants, the tier 8 Longarm ape died faster than the Blackwater Octopus that had the misfortune of having Wu Yan as an opponent .
“Yeah! We won!”
Kinuhata Saiai and Frenda jumped while cheering . Hinagiku, Shokuhou Misaki, and Takitsubou Rikou exchanged smiles, pleased with their job well-done .
“The big sisters are so incredible!”
Flandre-chan joined the celebration and she cheered along with the other girls . Flandre-chan’s praise said enough about the formidable girls .
Wu Yan smiled as he took in the sight of Hinagiku, Shokuhou Misaki, Kinuhata Saiai, Frenda, and Takitsubou Rikou who worked together to achieve a flawless victory .
“Not bad, not bad at all…”
