After enjoying a brief rest, I sent the division to the canyon.
I chose it as the battleground against the giants, and the soldiers gulped after seeing the Titan Corps from the distance.
“…they’re bigger than I imagined.” (Soldier)
“…Are we fighting them?” (Soldier)
“…I was thinking of getting hitched once I got home.” (Soldier)
Such conversations began to circulate, but to reassure them, the Division Commander Sicily says,
“Do not be afraid, brave soldiers of the Libra Division. The giants are monsters, yes. But we are monstrous as well. We have defeated large armies many times with a small army. We have destroyed impregnable fortresses with only one brigade. All we have to do is reenact those miracles.” (Sicily)
The princess said with conviction.
I’m sure the princess is consumed by the majesty of the giants, but she is daring to speak out loud to raise the morale of her troops. I should respond to her spirit.
I instructed my men to place the latest cannons in high places.
Since we were going up against giants, we didn’t bring in any firearms. I had them assemble cannons, catapults, ballistae, and other siege weapons. I had them assemble them, but even giants can’t escape death if a cannon or a huge stone hits their vital point.
—If it hits, it’s a story.
The Ernian army is no simple-minded army. In the past, there have been many generals who have used similar strategies to fight the giants. But in the end, they were unable to defeat the Titan Corps, so now we have to fight them.
“Does that mean our actions are futile?” (Nine)
As Nine says, I shake my head.
“No, the basic strategy is correct. What was wrong with the generals in the past was that they were more scared of the giants than they should have been. And there was never a man stronger than a giant.”
With a grin, I smiled fearlessly and ran. Accelerating with magic, I headed straight for the giants.
A Titan Corps several hundred meters away, an Imperial Army officer who commanded them seemed befuddled to see him. However, that expression soon turns into laughter. As he laughed at me, he said that a suicidal person had arrived, and ordered the hill giants to throw stones.
The hill giants threw nearby boulders with ease.
Each of the boulders they threw was as big as a farmer’s barn.
They poured down like rain, and the only thing that could happen to those who plowed through them was death, but I didn’t die.
On the contrary, I ran through the battlefield as if I were playing with death.
I dodged giant stones with my [Afterimage], evaded them with my flight, crushed them with my magic, and sometimes I even rode them in the air and came straight at the hill giants.
Standing in front of one of the giants, I unleash a full burst of magic power and defeat it with a single blow. There was zero hesitation.
“I’m sure my magic will run out tomorrow and I’ll be languishing in my dorm room… most likely, if I have a tomorrow.”
When I let it out like that, I’ll be hunting for the second and third giants.
“He’s like a performer dancing in the battlefield.” (Soldier)
Said an ally of mine,
“A Demon of the Battlefield.” (Enemy Soldier)
Those were the words from the enemy army.
Both were true, but I wanted to prove them right for as long as possible. I continued to fight, not caring that I was running out of magic.
Chloe’s brother, Volks, fights in response. He was conquering the giants beside me. I jump around from enemy-to-enemy shoulder-to-shoulder. Each time he moved like a ninja, he would slit the throat and heart of the enemy, spraying blood as he felled the giant.
The two of us are on our own, but the soldiers of the division start to move as well. Inspired by our success.
The Libra Division’s cannons and projectiles rained down on the giants, and the Division’s soldiers made their way to the giants as if they were taking up the slack.
Victor runs up the giant’s body and stabs it in the stomach with his greatsword.
Nine takes flight like an owl and shoots a huge fireball into a giant’s mouth.
The ordinary soldiers, who were not capable of such tricks, assisted the brave men in single combat or used ropes to topple the giants and tried to aim at their vital points.
The officers of the Astoria Empire were seething at the sight.
“What the hell are these guys? We’re supposed to be the strongest unit in the world.” (Enemy Soldier)
While some of the officers were frustrated, one of the chief strategists calmly said,
“Don’t worry. Only the hill giants are getting beaten up. The Cyclops, the evilest of the giants, they are still here.” (Enemy Strategist)
“Oh yeah! There still the Cyclops.” (Enemy Soldier)
When an enemy officer shouts, the first giant appears from behind.
The single-eyed giants, or cyclops as they are called, attacked a portion of the division with a large club. Dozens of lives are lost with that one blow.
The situation changes immediately.
The division, which had been riding high on its victory, begins to feel fear, which almost spreads, but reinforcements appear at the perfect time.
A beautiful woman dashes under the feet of the first giant, run up its legs and stabs it in the eyeball with her sword.
She defeated the Cyclops with a single blow and let out a yell.
“I am Lululucca, the strongest warrior of the Doll Tribe. I am the next chief of the Dolls! You of the Dolls! Those of you who want to be the next chief should bathe in the blood of more giants than me. Those of you who wish to show the pride of the Doll Tribe, hold on to your swords until the end! This battle will go down in history!” (Lululucca)
The mercenaries of the Doll tribe responded to her words with their actions.
They were undaunted by the ferocious giants and boldly faced them.
Seeing this scene, the soldiers of the Libra Division, who had been in a state of high spirits, regained their composure. They are bathed in the courage of the Dolls.
They challenged the giants in the same manner as before and defeated them one after another.
