e?>

<↑Rinne and her are the same age, so there’s no doubt about it.>

< It’s almost your birthday then.
Happy birthday.>

<8/8, I believe.>

Nana read had her physical measurements taken in advance since this is a sports gym.
Now she only needs to read it out loud.

Hearing this, Rinne tilted her head slightly.

“I thought Nana’s weight had basically stayed the same, but you’re much heavier than you were in middle school?”

“I think I might have gained about five kilos.
Well, you see, I wasn’t that strong then.”

“It’s as if time has stood still, doesn’t it?”

“That’s just the way it is.”

“That’s the way it is.”

<↑ That’s just the way it is>

“I’ll post your detailed profile on the official HEROES website after I take measurements again.”

“Thank you very much.
I’ll read the next question.”

[How did you acquire such extraordinary power?]

“I knew this question would come.
But I guess I can only answer that I was born with it.”

“Yeah.”

“I don’t have any specific training or anything.
I have never taken any lessons or participated in any club activities.”

Nana’s words are not false.

As far as physical ability is concerned, she has grown so much just by being alive.

She had part-time jobs, and she had learned how to use force so as not to kill people by accident, but as far as physical ability is concerned, she had never experienced any training that enhanced her power.

Considering that she had the power to kill a brown bear with a single blow when she was in elementary school, the only explanation she could give is that she was born with it.

<↑her straight punch will wipe out her opponent from the neck up.>

<↑A simple straight right hand could become an unguardable special move.>

“Nana has only practiced how not to use force against others, right?”

“That’s right.
Whether it is sports, martial arts, or weaponry, once I see it, I can reproduce it.
So, aside from learning how to use them, I have never practiced the techniques.”

“When Nana was little, mother used to show her a lot of martial arts videos.”

“Rin-chan said it was boring and went to bed.”

“Because it was boring.”

“Rin-chan will definitely fail to practice it, right?”

“I know, right?”

<↑You can tell it’s Rinne’s from the way she called her.> {she was using ohaha-sama}

<[Definitely fail].
That’s an apt description for her athletic level.>

“Exercise is the only thing I can’t do.”

“I’m here to replace you, so it’s fine.”

In contrast to Nana’s athletic prowess, Rinne is hopelessly incompetent at exercise.
Even just running is enough to cause her to be exhausted.

It is a well-known fact, and Rinne herself believes that there is nothing she can do about it.

Still, she has no desire to improve because of she believe that her best friend, Nana, will always beside her.

The fact that there is room to rely on each other is a blessing for both Rinne and Nana, so they had no reason to fix it.

“I don’t see any reason to dwell over this.
Let’s go next!”

[If the punches in the video are not fake or processed, you must have a reasonable amount of muscle strength.
I would like to see Nana lifting something heavy, like a barbell.
With that much power, of course, you can lift 500 kg weight, right?]

“Hmmm.
That’s quite a long sentence.
I wonder why they put this 500 kg standard on it?”

“I think it’s because the world record for weightlifting is less than 400 kg.
The point is, he’s taunting you.”

“Oh, I see.”

<↑Agree, I don’t get the point too.
What did they gain by using that sarcasm?>

“That’s what the gym is for.
I’ll go grab some barbells.”

“Okay.
Don’t hurt yourself.”

“The power of a punch is basically speed x weight.
So, it’s a little different from lifting heavyweights.
Even if you don’t have muscle strength, your body weight will increase the power of your punches.
However, your body has to be strong to lift a weight, so it’s not irrelevant.”

<↑her the source of the money perhaps?>

The sound of metal scraping against metal echoes through the gym.

Nana appeared on the screen with not ten or twenty but more than the human eye could count with a glance.
She has barbell shafts held in both arms.

She did it as if she were carrying a pencil, but it was a bizarre sight to anyone who could see it.

To explain briefly, the term “shaft” refers to the bar that holds the barbell.
The shaft alone weighs at least 10 kilograms, and if it is a heavy one, it must weigh at least 20 kilograms.

In other words, the dozens of shafts that Nana was comfortably carrying weighed well over 200 kilograms.

“I brought it!”

“Welcome home.”

“I brought a lot of stuff because I found some cool designs.
What do you think? Does it look like it weighs 500 kilos?”

Lol.>

“Correct, this is Muscle Corporation’s (MC) super-heavy barbells.
I had a chance to talk to an executive there for a while, and he recommended them to me, so I bought them.
But none of the kids in my apartment would use them.
And, of course, I also can’t.
They also said that the shaft is much heavier than conventional ones, so it’s very uncomfortable.”

“Usually, you need to put weights on both sides.”

“I think so? Well, I’m not interested in that, so I don’t know.”

>

<↑ha?>

“I’m not faking it.
Nana, throw that on the floor for a second.”

“It’s fine, but you have to stay away from them.
It’s dangerous.”

Nana holds the 34 shafts horizontally, and holds them together, then releases them to the floor.

As soon as the shafts hit the floor, a gong ……! The concrete surface of the floor shattered slightly.

“Eh, I can’t keep my hands on it if I put them vertically…!”

While the viewers were horrified, Nana was a bit shocked.

“No, of course not.
Put it down sideways.”

“I will…”

“Well.
I guess we know it’s real for now, don’t we?”

<↑I know what you mean.>

 “I really want to show you something that didn’t look like a fake, but this is though, how can I prov–“

As Rinne was tilting her head to think what to do with the viewers’ comments, she suddenly heard a sickening cracking sound echo through the air.

She looked back and saw Nana smiling happily while holding a shaft that had been shredded in two.

“Rin-chan, this is amazing! It feels sturdier than steel!”

“…Nana, what are you doing?”

“Oh, sorry.
I was just curious.
I thought it might break, but it just bent and didn’t break, so I tore it.”

……>

Rinne, who had been paying attention to the comments, did not see Nana actually tearing the shaft, but the viewers in front of the screen captured the moment well.

She lifted one of the shafts from the ground, held it near the middle with both hands, and twisted it inward with a quickly.

After a very natural motion that did not seem to require any effort, the metal rod gives up all too easily.

Nana looked at it, tilted her head, folded it back the other way, and finally tore the shaft, shredding its brittle center.

The whole operation took less than two seconds.
It all happened in the blink of an eye.

“Fufufu, you’re stronger than before…”

While everyone in the room, including Rinne, was donned in awe, Nana had a very happy expression on her face.
