For now, Minami’s actions were acceptable.
Even though we are using a game model and we are doing something similar. She has still experienced battle, albeit virtual, there is also our training.
I guess she’s able to reconcile her thoughts with reality.
“Hmm… If Leader is not here, there is only one attacker, Kaido-senpai, there should be another rearguard as an attacker to improve efficiency.” (Minami)
“I wish Minami had done it before.” (Masaru)
“It wouldn’t be fun if I did it, because the magician is a position where a natural beautiful girl, such as I, who suffers from Chunibyo, causes such things to happen naturally.” (Minami)
“Don’t bring that idea into our work!” (Masaru)
Kaido is fighting alone, and the two rearguards are leisurely contemplating the situation, but they’re still moving and keeping an eye on their surroundings.
If it’s a normal battle, this will be fine.
Oh, it’s a normal battle.
“Well, this is what I expect would happen.” (Kaido)
“Oh, a Carpet Bombing, is it?”
“What is the leader doing here? It is coming, that it is coming! A black object is heading for us! Hey, Kaido-senpai, get a grip, that you do! Medic! Medic!” (Minami)
“Well, tomorrow the supermarket will have a special on chicken thighs.” (Kaido)
“Get a grip, that you have to, medic! Don’t just run away from reality, you must come back! I’m in a bit of trouble, that I am!” (Minami)
As it was, they fought battles one after another, but they easily defeated the Wood Golem. I thought they had enough time for the boss battle, but that was not the case.
Even now, I’m swinging around my Mineral Tree with enough momentum that an afterimage remains. I saw the Pinball Golem after some time.
Well, the afterimage is from my sword swings. Moreover, I can follow the Pinball Golem with my eyes, and now I handle it casually and with plenty of leeways.
The problem is the members behind me who can’t handle it.
“I’m sorry I was underestimating the dungeon for a while. I thought that the boss was also a small fry because the small fries were too weak. Now, I feel like I am stuck in a pit, that I do.” (Minami)
“You need to calm down, Minami. How many times have you called them small fry? If it weren’t for Jiro-san, would we have been bombed.” (Masaru)
“That’s right when I thought that, I was suddenly blinded by a stun grenade, then an explosion of spikes, I felt like I was about to be killed for the first time. I thought it was a little unpleasant of a move, though, that I do.” (Minami)
She seemed a little confused, but still rather calm.
Only Kaido was driven by the urge to kick back, but he was being treated by Masaru.
Now let’s deal with the barrage quietly.
The one that explodes can be easily cut, but the one that occasionally emits a blinding flash of light is difficult to cut because you lose your sight for a few seconds.
“It’s a hassle to attack it using just your hearing and touch.” (Masaru)
“Are your ears supposed to detect moving objects?” (Minami)
“No, he’s just listening to sounds.” (Masaru)
“The skin can feel, but it can’t act as a like radar.” (Minami)
You can’t survive in a dungeon if you can’t fight just because you lost your vision for a couple of seconds.
The poisonous gas can be blown off by the pressure from my sword swing.
The number of kinds and attacks has increased, and the arrangement of golems has changed, making it more troublesome.
I was the one who suggested it though!
Even so, Masaru has become skillful, and I’m glad that he has been able to use recovery while talking.
“…will we be able to do that too, that we will?” (Minami)
“Actually Jiro-san has been able to do it… but… can we do it?” (Masaru)
“I’ve swung my swords a lot too, but I don’t think I can blow away gas with just a sword swing… Senpai, will I be able to do it too?” (Kaido)
“This? If you get used to it, you can do it… just like when you can talk a little louder because the explosions are too loud!”
Besides, the answer to their questions can only be answered in this way.
I was able to do it before I noticed.
When I sharpened my senses out of necessity, my hearing caught the sound of the wind blowing, my skin felt the sensation of the air vibrating, and something I consider my sixth sense began to recognize things.
There is no process there.
I just sort of did it, and then it evolved and I was able to do it.
Without it, I would not have been able to respond to the attacks of Suela and the instructors, so I must have acquired it.
It’s not that you can’t do it.
You have to do it and learn to do it.
That’s part of fantasy.
Maybe it’s just my gamer brain, but when I face fantasy in real life, I began to understand.
If you can’t do it, you die.
I’m sure of it because I’m the one wielding my Mineral Tree grounded in reality.
Even now, as a stone ball, the size of a bowling ball is flying at me, trying to bomb us to death, and I’m cutting off three of them at once.
“Well? Minami, have you found a way to get in the fray?”
“How about we simply exhaust our resources? It’s safe for us, that it is, and we’re probably in safe hands, that we do.” (Minami)
“ The sun is setting. Rejected. And I don’t like the fact that you’re the only ones who have it easy.”
It seems that their strategy is different from the one I used.
The last time I did this, they released a bunch of them all at once, and once they were defeated, it was over. This time, they’re continuously being replenished.
It would probably be over if we destroyed most of them, but my kouhai, who was the only one who knew what I was talking about, suggested that we let the boss work and the subordinates slack off.
Naturally, I couldn’t accept this, so I literally cut her off with a single word, and make her think of another way.
“I think we can clear it if we simply break that ejection port, that we can…” (Minami)
“Okay, I’ll go break it, and you guys work hard in the meantime.”
“Leader, calm down, that you should.” (Minami)
“I’m calm, you know?”
“A man who leaves a baby deer at the blast site can’t be calm, that he is not!” (Minami)
“A baby deer?”
“Is that where you’re going?” (Masaru)
“Either way, I think this is the time to go into it.”
The ejection port from which the pinball golem emerges, as Minami calls it is installed at a total of eleven locations on three sides. The exception is the eight corners of the cube and the wall where we entered.
In addition, it seems to be able to change direction to some extent, and it tracks us like a turret.
The only thing we can do is maintain a deadlock with our backs to the wall, which has no ejection port.
It’s getting boring and annoying.
Kaido and Masaru, who have gradually adapted to the fantasy atmosphere have become incapacitated by the explosion.
“…I can’t help it. Please do the same as Leader, Kaido-senpai.” (Minami)
“No, Minami-chan? I haven’t stopped people a lot of them yet?” (Kaido)
“Rejected, that it is. We are not in a situation to question whether we can say we can do it or not, that we cannot. The only thing I can say to that is if you cannot do it, that you will die in the explosion.” (Minami)
“Uh, right.” (Kaido)
Women are very determined when it comes down to it.
Kaido nodded with a determined expression, as he took in the pressure coming from Minami as she gave instructions.
Kaido looks like he’s being pushed by younger people?
I don’t think it’s enviable.
“In the meantime, the leader is going to destroy the injection port on the right side, and you’ll be a decoy to attract the golems. Maybe you’ll be able to do it if you receive enhancement at key areas while Masaru heals you.” (Minami)
“Is that the only way?” (Kaido)
“Well, now that we’ve decided on a course of action, let’s go quickly because I want to conquer the second floor today.”
