cessories are one of the most important weapons.
Melty’s pride as the absolute power holder won’t allow such an excuse, such as [I am not using a weapon] when she activates an accessory effect that can be triggered at will.
But on the other hand, there is no choice but not to activate it.
She has no intention of destroying her own soul in a playful fight, and she would rather have her pride hurt than have that happen.
Taking all of this into consideration, Melty made a decision.
(Okay, let’s admit defeat in this battle.
Chronostasis will be dealt with by [magic sealing ring].
So let’s see how Sukuna made it this far.)
After mentally admitting her defeat, she puts her consciousness into the [magic sealing ring] to activate it.
However, it will take at least one second in real time for the signal from Melty, who is now thinking 128 times faster than before, to reach the [magic sealing ring], and it will also take about 0.5 seconds from the signal to the activation.
To put it simply, she has 1.5 seconds before the effect of [Chronostasis] is canceled, or about 3 minutes, when converted to the time felt in the accelerated consciousness.
During this time, she intends to fully analyze how Sukuna destroyed seven layers of the [Citadel of Time] in an almost instant time frame.
That was the only motivation left for Melty to keep going in a battle that she was sure to lose.
She scrutinizes the situation on the field.
First, Kohaku destroyed the meteor about seven seconds ago.
It was about three seconds later that the wreckage and wind pressure created a hanging garden full of holes.
Sukuna jumped up to use them as a foothold immediately after that and reached a position where she could hit the melty probably two seconds before.
About 1.5 seconds from that point, [something] shattered the [Citadel of Time] to its seventh layer.
Now is thirty-one seconds after Melty’s thoughts accelerated.
In other words, about 0.25 seconds of real time had passed, and Sukuna remained motionless as she landed on the larger rubble in front of Melty.
She landed with considerable force and bent over as much as she could and Melty cannot see her expression from her point of view.
(I should assume that it was an attack at ultra-high speed.
The question is how to achieve such speed, the route of attack, and the means of attack.
As far as I can see, Sukuna’s status itself is only as good as what I expected.
As someone who had set one foot in the divine realm, she is unparalleled for a level 100 Oni tribe, but it’s not a status that could overwhelm me.)
Having admitted defeat, Melty even dared to use her [Heaven’s Eye] to fully analyze the situation.
Speed in this world is determined by agility.
Although there may be some increase or decrease in speed due to skills such as shrinkage and pace, the basic rule is constant.
Although Sukuna’s status has been boosted by the Red Wolf Attire and various buffs, including [Closing Ceremony], it is still inferior to Melty’s.
At least in terms of numerical values, Sukuna’s speed is indeed still inferior to Melty’s.
So it is hard to say that Sukuna could move so fast that Melty can’t follow it with her eyes.
(Even from a firepower standpoint, there’s no way she could shatter seven layers of fortifications with a single blow.
Seeing that there is no afterglow, she’s not using any art.
There shouldn’t be enough attack power to break seven layers in one blow without it, which means it was a series of blows).
The discomfort she feels not only in terms of speed but also in terms of firepower.
It’s like piling discomfort on top of discomfort…….
Yes, her image of Sukuna now is so far off from the “results” of what actually happened.
(…… Maybe I should take a bite out of it once? since the Chronostasis won’t be triggered anymore after this.)
Melty doesn’t think Sukuna’s offensive will end here.
Perhaps a follow-up attack will come.
At that time, she will probably use the same method as before.
Unlike earlier, the current Melty is now seeing the world 128 times slower, whether Melty can respond or not is another matter, but at the very least, she should be able to observe what is happening.
And since even Melty cannot withstand eight or more layers of [Chronostasis] for even one second, the number of layers has been limited from the beginning.
Which means there will be no more automatic triggering.
In that sense, this situation, which forced her to instantly hit the limit of acceleration, was ideally the worst possible development.
Then again, Sukuna’s ability to do a simultaneous break of [Citadel of Time] was one of the factors that forced her into this situation.
The response was limited because of the amount of time it would take to deal with the situation.
In the midst of these thoughts, Melty suddenly realized something.
(There’s an unusual amount of pebbles? They should not have been broken into so little pieces.)
Seeing the stones which were only a few centimeters in size, scattered sparsely in the space, Melty had a question mark on her mind.
The meteor shattered by the Kohaku was quite rough in its pieces, probably due to the size and scope of the magic itself.
It’s also possible that the destruction was done deliberately rough in order to give Sukuna a foothold.
At the very least, the Shuten Douji’s [Oni-Wailing Karma Destruction] that Melty had seen in the past was an art that had the potential to do just that since it had literally turned the great magic equivalent of a meteor into a powder before.
In addition to that, the debris created after the meteor was shattered was either grinded to dust or pushed far up into the air by the storms created by Kohaku’s [Shosen Ranba].
At least, there should be no such small stones left at the altitude where Melty was staying, which means that these were the pebbles generated after the [Shosen Ranba] unleashed.
There were four spots just reflected in her front-facing field of view.
And after she looks closely, she can see some rocks that look like they were smashed by something.
It is quite possible that the pebble stones came out from those rocks when they were broken.
But what this fact means is that Sukuna used them as footholds.
Then Melty realized what had happened in those few seconds.
It’s hard to believe.
She doesn’t want to.
But no matter how much she wanted to deny it, the results were still there.
(It’s not something a person who hasn’t even broken her level limit could do, that’s just stupi–……!)
Sukuna, who had not moved an inch, sank just slightly then she launched herself from her landing.
An explosion, a leap, a burst in instant.
And in that instant, Melty could see the rocky mass of the foothold shattered by the too-strong step.
The world is still soundless, but such a phenomenon is caught in Melty’s field of vision.
It is theoretically possible, but NPCs can never reproduce this power, this is a power that only travelers from other sides can use.
She’s running through the world of supersonic speed while damaging herself to the bone, thus turning herself into an extreme bullet.
“The traveler who travels in the world of sound!”
In her accelerated state, Melty muttered this without knowing whether it came from her heart or her mouth.
And then… Three crushing sounds in succession.
Two layers were destroyed preventing the meteor debris, seven-time just happened before, and three times more at the current time.
This means that the [Citadel of Time]’s twelve layers have been fully destroyed.
That’s how much out-of-this-world maneuvering occurred at supersonic speed through this unstable hanging garden.
The pure violence of speed that does not even allow one to react in a world accelerated by 128 times.
After knocking down all the walls, the last blow struck Melty’s torso.
But that was probably Sukuna’s limit, Sukuna lost her strength in mid-air immediately after attacking Melty directly, and he fell as she was.
(SP out…? no, it’s possible that it has reached a minus.
I was entertained, albeit at the cost of one recklessness….)
The damage, in its own way, is negligible.
A shock from a physical attack in combat, the first in what may be hundreds of years.
Still in accelerated thought, Melty quietly holds her finger in the shape of a gun as she watches Sukuna slowly fall in a frame-by-frame motion.
Even an SP out will inflict you with tremendous pain.
Mlety wonders how much pain one experiences if one goes to the minus.
The anguish Sukuna is experiencing will last, but Melty cannot bear to see her suffer any longer; thus, Melty prepared magic for Sukuna, who was falling with an anguished expression on her face.
It is a death magic that can eliminate an opponent with a level difference of 200 or more.
Melty used this magic to signal the end of the battle and to relieve Sukuna’s pain.
