Chapter 278 Strongest Sage, Prepares Countermeasures


I ask Ruli while thinking that .

"Want me to teach you how to read complex magic circles next time?"

"Please do! . . . But can I really read these?"

"You will easily once you've gotten used to it . "

"Yay!  . . . What about constructing one?"

Ruli looks at me .
I'd like to teach her that as well--but unfortunately, that one's a tall order .

" . . . Constructing these would be difficult . You need another skill to construct a magic circle that's too meticulous . "

Constructing a magic circle this complex requires you to dip in a different skill set from making normal ones .
When the connecting lines in a magic circle get too thin, it gets harder for mana to flow through them, hence you need to take a variety of measures .

Since Ruli has talent, she'll probably manage in a few years time .

"But once you're able to read these kinds of magic circles, you'll have an easier time when you're constructing a complex one . . . It should serve you well in constructions of ordinary magic circles as well . "

"It's rare to see Mathi-kun praising someone's magic circle . . .   Is it really that incredible?"

"Yeah . Its quality as a magic circle is quite up there . Still some room for improvements though . "

I turn my sight at the comm magic tool .
Peeps capable of constructing a magic circle this advanced would have gotten strong were they channeled their magic training in the right direction .

. . . Well no point in fussing over these things with those bunch though .
Their goal is not getting strong, but developing some weird magic after all .

I make a declaration after thinking .

"Alright, let's make some preparations for the fight . "

"Preparations . . . What are we gonna do?"

" . . . There's a little something we need to make . "

If Anmorr brothers wanted to best us . . . They should have not shown me their Test Body like that .
Exhibiting how it was being made is like asking me to prepare countermeasures .

About 30 hours since we fought Warmongers .

Anmorr brothers' magic tool reactivated .
We gather around the magic tool when we saw that .

" . . . This is earlier than the plan . "

"I mean 『Strengthened Test Body No . 1』 was mostly done . We only needed to make a minor adjustment . . . The problematic points would show during the experiment, then we just need to improve on it . "

. . . I see .
Improving huh, they're already assuming that it will be reusable .  
They're really underestimating us . .

"So we're gonna be sparring partners in your experiment for that purpose huh . "

"That's right! . . . Do your worst and give us some good data! Don't die too fast you, that's boring . "

" . . . We'll fight with all we got, so that test body can be improved further . "

The first half is the truth .
. . . I don't plan to let them improve on it in the least though .

"Very good! Okay then, let me invite you to our laboratory!  . . . First thing first, can you go back to the spot you fought [Warmongers]?"

"Okay . "

We went back to the former battlefield .
Good thing we memorized the spot .

『So their base was close by . . . 』

『It's probably not a coincidence . They must have somehow induced those [Warmongers] to focus hunting around that part . 』

Looks like their base was close to that place .
We arrived at the battlefield while running and thinking that .
