owerful attack while Sukuna is still trapped inside.

A tremendous mass of power condenses as Nocturne groans and opens wide her mouth.

Responding to it, Sukuna destroys her own [Barrier Art – Black] from the inside and prepares to receive it.

“[Kishin-ryu Hakai Justsu’s Ougi]” {Kishin-style Destruction school – Super Secret Move}

This is a skill that can only be used by demons who have awakened the [Closing Ceremony].

The current Sukuna, who has used pseudo-Shuten’s power, can use this art without regard to her proficiency in this skill, which should not have increased in the slightest.

A black-light shines on Sukuna’s kanabou.

“[Full Moon Blaster]!”

“[Kikoku Tenshou]!” {Heaven Oni Wail}

The compressed laser-like breath that pierces everything collides with the Kishin’s darkness has created a storm in its wake, and the shockwave containing the power of Sukuna’s Absolute Destruction destroyed and shattered many of the Luminescence.

“Ku—ORYAAA!!”

“Wha—”

Sukuna’s all-out strike shattered the Full Moon’s Blast, and once again Nocturne’s face was painted by astonishment.

Nocturne cannot hide her agitation to see her sure-kill technique has been destroyed in frontal confrontation.

Even though both side has yet to hurt each other so far, Nocturne was a side that was already extremely exhausted by their exchange.

Sukuna’s [Closing Ceremony] also has a time limit, but more than half of the 30 [Phosphorescent] deployed by Nocturne have already been destroyed in this small amount of time.

That’s how powerful it is.
It was clear that Sukuna was the stronger one looking at this situation.

The effect of Sukuna’s [Closing Ceremony] itself is very similar to that of [Furious Rage], except for its status-enhancement multiplier.

However, in exchange for this, she is allowed to use all of the skills exclusive to the Oni tribe, such as [Kishin-ryu Hakai Jutsu], in top of [Authority class Abilities], which hold power to transcend skills that should be exclusive to Shuten.

Sukuna has become a mini-Kishin in terms of status and the number of cards she has in her hand; her current self is nothing compared to her original vessel.

And truth to be told, the most powerful thing of her arsenal is the time limit of her [Closing Ceremony].

Looking at Sukuna’s fight in the past, starting at Red Wolf, most of the strongest opponents that Sukuna has fought have forced her to fight in a war of endurance, and the [Closing Ceremony] has determined that what Sukuna need the most is ‘time.’

That’s why her [Closing Ceremony] has an unbelievable duration of 10 minutes.

This is more than enough time to last until the end of the battle.

To make it even worse, while in this state, she does not consume SP except for arts, so in order to stop the current Sukuna, it is necessary to directly hit her with an attack in the same caliber of [Full Moon Blast] and eliminate her with a single blow.

Of course, Nocturne had no way of knowing these details.
But she knew that in order to win this battle, she would need something with more firepower than her [Full Moon Blast].

“[Luminescence Split].”

With Nocturne’s command, the Luminescence, half destroyed by Sukuna, split and returned to its original number.

But in any case, this much clearly won’t stop Sukuna.

“…un-unfair.”

“There’s no such thing as unfairness in battle.”

Nocturne replied to Sukuna’s unintentional reaction with a shrug.

That’s because the [Luminescence] is so powerful that even with Nocturne’s enormous MP, she won’t be able to keep it up for long.

It’s not necessarily a good move for Nocturne to increase the amount of Luminescence she maintains.

Even so, it’s a necessity to stop Sukuna’s onslaught since it could hinder her movement just by increasing the number of things she needs to handle.
Also Nocturne decided that Drago and Arthur, who couldn’t even intervene in the fight yet, weren’t worth watching out for.

But as if to ridicule Nocturne’s way of thinking, there was a sound that echoed throughout the precincts.

–<>-

It was just a few moments before the system announcement echoed out.

As she watched the battle intensify, Rou quietly muttered.

“I guess it’s about time.”

She released her praying posture and wielded her rapier in the opposite hand.

In order to help Sukuna, Rou accepted Haruru’s request.

Rou’s memories then rewind a little to the battle on that fateful day.

It was the moment she’s become enraptured by Sukuna’s readiness to die without losing her brilliance in front of a hopeless fight.

From that day on, Rou watched Sukuna stream without fail and worked hard to level up so that she wouldn’t be left behind by Sukuna, who was getting stronger day by day.

-If I’m weak, I’ll be forgotten.

–If I am strong, Sukuna will notice me.

Rou strongly believes so.

And it was not a mistake.

Sukuna had come to rely on her in this battle.

This simplest thing has given Rou the ultimate pleasure.
That’s why, Rou was ready to give Sukuna all of her.

“Jack, I’m giving you all my levels.”

 –all of them! That’s gonna be a big one!

 –But half of that is fine.
I don’t like to take too much.

 –Now, break the seal.
It’s time for the rebirth!

“Ufufu, you have no ambition.”

Rou laughed at the Devil’s voice that only she could hear, released her Extra Skill [Super Covert], and pierced her own throat with Mellow, the Rapier of Temptation.

Without even minding the damage to her vital would reduce her HP, she pulls out the rapier while spilling out red damage particle effects.

<>

A system announcement was played in response to Rou’s action.

Ignoring it as it was, she pulled out her rapier again and continued to thrust both of her hands in turn.

<>

A stab on the body.

<>

A thrust for both thighs.

<>

And some for both of her feet.

<>

Then, finally, Rou’s heart is pierced, and the ritual is completed.

<>

Along with the system announcement, Rou’s eyes turn jet black.

Her beautiful blond hair faded to white, and darkness covered the entire body, stealing away all of her colors.

In a matter of seconds, Rou’s skin, hair, clothes, and even her armor were all dyed white, as if she were dressed for death.

The glaring abyssal eyes were the only color left for Rou.

<<——… —! —! –>>

A noise runs through the world.
To welcome the release of a power that should not be there.

<>

“….afufu”

A murderer’s laugh spilled out.

In a sanctuary filled with moonlight, an outlaw murderous princess was born.

===*

The secret secrets of the demons and the power of the abomination have been unleashed.

Next time, the battle against the Moon Wolf will be decided!

TL note

First thing first, before you question why most of Nocturne’s art is in English? Because mostly it is.
It literally is.

Tln1: Madara? Is that you?

Tln3: Sukuna Absolute Destruction [Ability] was written using kanji “authority.”

Tln4: フルムーン・フラワリング  : Full Moon Flower Ring, written using kanji: Full Moon Advent – Flower Butterfly.

Rou’s EX skill [Super Covert] can be read as “Super Hidden Desire.”
