~3rd Person Perspective~
Nobody knows how many times they’ve heard Alraune’s [Flower Chant] echoing through the air.
In response to her chant, the flower petals that flew through the air shone bright, and an explosion occurred in the knee of the Anchor.
Explosive magic aimed at joints.
It was supposed to cause the giant to collapse, unable to support its own weight.
However, although the giant staggered slightly, it remained standing and resumed the invasion.
Alraune reveals astonishment while manipulating magic and her chariot.
She messed up her [Flower Chant] again–
However, Kyuu-chan’s flying kick jumped and send an explosive kick, and finally, the giant’s knee broke.
The giant looks up at the heavens and sinks into the earth.
“Okay! Al are you okay!?” (Kyuuketsu)
“Yeah, yeah, but…!” (Alraune)
“–Fufufu, why don’t you just give up? No matter how hard you try, you will all be squashed soon. That’s inevitable.” (Sharluel)
A voice that’s making fun of them came from overhead.
When they look at the source, it was the Power of God Sharluel who is floating in the air, looking bored.
Alraune, manipulating her chariot, glared at Sharluel as she floated around the giant, which was about to finish regenerating.
“You won’t know until we do it, you know, for an angel are you only good with your words?” (Alraune)
“Well, I’m saying this out of concern for you.” (Sharluel)
“Concerned about what?” (Alraune)
“—Your strength is on the decline, isn’t it? You magician with tacky tastes in flowers?” (Sharluel)
Alraune clicks her tongue.
Sharluel saw her reaction and smiled triumphantly.
“You’re breathing heavy, huh, aren’t you really close to your limit? It’s okay to give up, you know, it’s useless to struggle anyway.” (Sharluel)
“…Mind your own business, fallen angel.” (Alraune)
“I haven’t said anything wrong, because your companions won’t come back to help.” (Sharluel)
Sharluel ridicules Alraune with a wicked smirk on her face.
“I’m sure they’ve escaped, but it’s a very good thing, you know? Come on, you, get on with it…” (Sharluel)
“You are quite the unfortunate one.” (Alraune)
Alraune interrupted the angel’s words, then gave a snide remark of her own.
“The boss I’ve worked for is a person who never gives up even if the enemy is larger than a mountain and immortal.” (Alraune)
“…You’re quite hot-blooded, huh.” (Sharluel)
Sharluel throws it out a disinterested comment—at that time.
Everyone on the spot felt something wrong all at the same time.
They can hear a faint sound, something unfamiliar to all of them.
“…What is that sound?” (Sharluel)
Although they didn’t say it out loud, Alraune, Sergeant, and Kyuu-chan were all wondering about this mysterious melody… that seems to be coming from nowhere.
Eventually, Kyu-chan, who had the most acute senses, figured out where the sound was coming from.
As she gazed ahead, she saw a group of people coming from the foot of the mountain, heading in a straight line towards her.
There are more than ten or twenty of them.
Sharluel, who saw this, laughed as if she couldn’t bear the sight, laughing, “Fufufu!”.
“It doesn’t matter how many people are here, like moths flying towards a flame, idiots, it’s all the same!” (Sharluel)
The Anchor who was still was now fully recovered, slowly got up.
With an evil smirk, Sharluel squints at the group coming towards them, and—
“……what is that?” (Sharluel)
She doubted her own eyes at the unbelievable sight.
No, she’s not the only one.
Alraune, Kyuu-chan, and Sergeant all forgot about the current situation and stared at the sight in a daze.
Kyuu-chan murmured while everyone was frozen.
“Festival music…?” (Kyuuketsu)
The mysterious melody they heard earlier is a festival song.
So where are you hearing from? That’s the thing.
It was played by a group of people, led by Narugoa, who was coming towards them.
“What… are they…?” (Sharluel)
Sharluel is just like them her mouth hanging open.
It was expected since the group that came was strange and acted bizarrely.
“–Nyaahaha! From here on, I’ll show my true power! A transcendental skill!” (Nekomata)
“Nekomata-sama! Amazing-nyaa!” (Ayame)
“The long-awaited live performance! How thrilling-nyaa!” (Bakeneko)
At one point, Nekomata took the lead, playing the shamisen with her nails. [T/N: Shamisen is a handheld string instrument like a guitar. It used to have cat guts as its strings.]
Behind her, is her subordinates, the bakenekos, dancing cheerfully in a procession.
“It’s time for an encore performance! Let’s all dance like there’ no tomorrow!” (Diva)
“Diva! Diva! Diva!” (Harpies)
“I’m… together with them…” (Yukime)
On the other side, a group of Harpies, led by the Diva, sang in crystal clear voices, their glittering wings fluttering like the feathers from a celestial maiden.
Snowflakes were glittering above their heads, even though it was already summer.
This was Yukime’s performance as she danced with the girls.
“It’s been a while since we’ve played together like this, hasn’t it?” (Sakura)
“Well, I’ve only been working lately… I’m not confident…” (Momiji)
“Just follow my lead okay, look.” (Sakura)
On the other hand, the appearance of Oni’s sisters playing the shakuhachi side by side. [T/N: Shakuhachi are ancient Japanese bamboo flutes.]
The tone played from the shakuhachi was clear and harmonious.
“Hey, Narugoa-senpai !? What’s with those steps!? How terrible!” (Senri)
“Um, I’m not used to the dance from the east…”
“It’s just a dance!? The Narugoa-senpai who can do anything, except for this is quite the gap…! I’ll dance with you!” (Senri)
“My bad Senri.”
“No problem Narugoa-senpai!” (Senri)
And their leader, Narugoa, is somehow performing an awkward dance with Senri, the middle boss of the Inanaki Sacred Mountain.
In addition, we can see the three Goblin brothers dancing with a loud shout of “Soiya, Soiya”, and the Cantera Bats dancing in the sky instead of lanterns. [T/N: Soiya is just a chant people dancing in the Summer Parade in Japan say.]
There were almost a hundred of them, forming a procession and heading straight for them.
It was like a parade.
Sharluel spewed out a laugh.
“What’s that !? These ridiculous people! I wonder if they’ve gone crazy because of despair!? Ufu-Ufufufufufufu!” (Sharluel)
She laughed so hard, and then suddenly her face became expressionless, and she said in a very cold tone,
“—How unpleasant, I’ll grind them to dust.” (Sharluel)
Following Sharluel’s words, the Anchor swung its huge arms.
It is going to sweep the whole procession as if they were crumbs on the table.
“[Flower Chant]! [Explosion]!” (Alraune)
Immediately afterwards, a tremendous explosion rips off the elbow of the giant’s swinging arm.
Sharluel glared at Alraune.
“…Is it worth keeping up with those antics? To those who are playing around while you are about to wear yourself out.” (Sharluel)
“It doesn’t matter if they’re dancing or singing! The important thing is that he’s here!” (Alraune)
“Narugoa-san defeated 500 Valkyries! In other words, now that, that person came–!” (Sergeant)
“I’m sure we’ll win!” (Kyuuketsu)
With that said, Kyu-chan kicks the giant’s right knee and destroys it, and Sergeant latches on its left knee and melts it.
The giant, unable to maintain its balance, collapsed again.
Amidst the curling dust, Alraune glares back at the angel and then declares in a proud voice,
“–I’ll make it fall a hundred times, a thousand times until the sun goes down! I’ll make it fall over again and again! I won’t let you touch him, not even a finger!” (Alraune)
The head of the parade has finally reached the giant’s feet—
