Chapter 994: Super Powerful Boomerangs
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Two boomerangs were crossed on its back. They flickered with a faint silver glow.
It was Tang Wulin’s first experience with a mecha that used boomerangs as its weapons. The name which hovered above his opponent’s mecha was Ling Wuyue. It sounded like a real name and a female name at that.
“Five, four, three, two, one. Let the match begin!”
With the electronic countdown, the mecha battle began officially.
Ling Wuyue’s mecha raised both its arms simultaneously and grabbed the two boomerangs’ protruding tips at its shoulders. Then, it suddenly flung them in Tang Wulin’s direction.
The two boomerangs shot out quick as lightning. They drew two arcs in the air as they spun at high speed. They shot out toward the skies. At least, in the eyes of everyone, they were not flying toward Tang Wulin.
Although Ling Wuyue operated a long-range mecha, she did not attempt to increase the distance between them. Instead, she broke into a run-up as she sprinted furiously in a beeline toward Tang Wulin. Surprisingly, she was trying to close their distance.
Tang Wulin dared not slack off. He controlled his mecha so that it ran to meet his opponent. At the same time, he kept an eye on the boomerangs that were spinning at high speed in midair.
There was no need to test them. Tang Wulin knew that the direct attacking power of these two boomerangs was far greater than an ordinary soul cannon. The run-of-the-mill melee mecha’s protective barrier would not be able to withstand a direct hit.
The boomerangs were about four meters long each. Both edges of the boomerang came together to make an angle of more than a hundred and forty degrees at its center. The two edges and inner blade of the boomerangs were made of extremely sharp alloyed blades. The more terrifying aspect of these weapons was when they were flung out, their internal soul circuits provided a high-frequency vibration which gave them their extremely powerful cutting strengths. Combined with their weight and speed at which they were tossed by a mecha, their destructive powers were the most powerful among the standard weapons, if not among the long-range mecha weapons.
Naturally, it came with its problems as well. With its powerful destructive strength, it was extremely difficult to control. It was not easy to master the boomerang.
The huge boomerangs whistled through the air. Surprisingly, they did not fly at Tang Wulin immediately. While they spun at high speeds, the two boomerangs covered a wide area of attack collectively as one spun behind the other. The two mechas had gotten closer to each other.
Ling Wuyue’s mecha suddenly leaped up and curled in midair. It had decided to take to the air. At the same time, the thrusters behind its back began flickering slightly.
If it were a battle between soul masters, the one who leaped into the air first would be at a disadvantage. Unless the soul master was absolutely confident in his or her own strength, it would be more difficult to balance one’s body in midair. However, it was not the case for mechas since mechas could fly. A mecha had multiple ways to adjust its position even in midair.
Tang Wulin stopped his mecha in its tracks. He remained where he stood and pointed forward with his spear. He intended to cope with the fast-changing events by adhering to a fundamental principle.
A massive boomerang approached him. With a deafening whistle, it reached Tang Wulin in the next instant after Ling Wuyue had leaped.
Tang Wulin pulled back the spear in his hands before strongly thrusting it again. With his visual acuity and using the mecha’s computations, he aimed right at the boomerang’s core. The core was at the point where the two blades were conjoined. It was the origin of the boomerang’s force. Once it was destroyed, the boomerang would be affected for sure.
“Ding!” Amidst the crisp sound produced in the instant the boomerang and the spear met, a powerful rotating force immediately lifted Tang Wulin’s spear. However, the boomerang itself scurried away like a startled little rabbit. Its attacking powers were not completely unleashed. It flew back into Ling Wuyue’s mecha’s hand as the mecha pounced on him.
Ling Wuyue’s mecha grabbed the boomerang with its right hand. Using the sharp edge, it slashed downward at Tang Wulin from the front while the other boomerang appeared behind Tang Wulin at this very moment. It was a pincer attack!
That was not all. A faint layer of air flow was released from Ling Wuyue’s body. A third boomerang suddenly appeared at the thoracoabdominal section of her mecha which slashed horizontally toward Tang Wulin. On the third boomerang, there were clearly two yellow and three purple soul rings.
Her martial soul was surprisingly a boomerang!
The third boomerang appeared slightly smaller than the standard mecha weapons. However, there was no doubt that it posed the greatest threat to Tang Wulin. His opponent did not cut him any slack from the onset. She was a three-boomerang expert. Her unique fighting style astonished Tang Wulin, albeit he was flustered slightly.
His opponent’s attacks had seemingly covered all possible routes of evasion. Not only that, all five soul rings on the third boomerang were flickering. It was impossible to tell which one it was about to unleash.
Tang Wulin silently praised his opponent. He controlled his melee mecha to swerve to the side. He utilized his Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track and retreated backward at an angle.
He had predetermined the direction. The frontal attack was undoubtedly the strongest. The destructive power of the boomerang behind him was equally powerful. He decided to evade the most powerful attacks first.
He flung his spear behind him. Infused with soul power, the spear glowed. He did not need to look at it. He used his judgment to repel the boomerang in the simplest way possible.
With a melee mecha and his soul power, Tang Wulin could still repel a boomerang.
However, he did not expect Ling Wuyue’s third boomerang to suddenly change at this moment.
The third boomerang that was her martial soul suddenly floated upward. She flung the boomerang in her hand and it collided lightly with the third boomerang. Like birds flying in different directions, they flew in opposite directions at the same time. The first soul ring on the martial soul boomerang shone brightly. Its speed increased tremendously, and it appeared to have turned into an illusory shadow as it flew around Tang Wulin’s mecha. It immediately clashed with the boomerang that was about to collide with Tang Wulin’s spear. After the two boomerangs collided, they changed their trajectories again. Of the three boomerangs, two of them came at Tang Wulin from awkward angles, such as his mecha’s armpit and head. Currently, Tang Wulin’s mecha and spear stopped abruptly at a spot that was void. Even his Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track could not stop him from staggering under such sudden changes.
‘This is bad!’ Tang Wulin squinted his eyes slightly. In a bout of helplessness, he could only unleash his martial soul.
Scores of Bluesilver Emperor vines swarmed out like bees. This was Tang Wulin’s first experience of being at a disadvantage until he was forced to use his martial soul to defend himself.
“Puff! Puff!” The two standard boomerangs were parried by the extremely tensile Bluesilver Grass. However, the Bluesilver Emperor was also riddled with dents. Those were mecha weapons, after all. Although it had evolved into the Bluesilver Emperor, and Tang Wulin had used the Bluesilver Overlord Transformation to enhance it, it was unable to fully withstand the strikes from the boomerangs which vibrated at high frequencies.
In any case, the strikes were parried by the Bluesilver Emperor.
However, at this very moment, Tang Wulin felt an immense threat which came from the third boomerang.
When he utilized his Bluesilver Emperor to form a defense barricade, the third boomerang should have been within the boundaries. However, the third boomerang seemed to have vanished. All traces of its sound or soul power shockwave had disappeared in an instant. It was nowhere to be seen.
Her boomerang had a soul skill which concealed its own aura. Tang Wulin engaged his thrusters without hesitation. He decided to charge toward Ling Wuyue’s direction. In the next instant, his acceleration halted abruptly.
There was a deafening sound caused by abrasive friction. The various instruments within Tang Wulin’s mecha flickered wildly.
His mecha’s protective barrier was destroyed, and the thrusters on its back were damaged by thirty percent. If he had been slightly slower, he reckoned that his pilot cockpit would have been cut open.
Affected by the boomerang behind it, Tang Wulin’s forward-charging mecha slanted to one side and rolled sideways.
Ling Wuyue, who was currently in midair, accelerated instantly. She had also engaged her thrusters. Looking down from high above, she pounced right at Tang Wulin. The two boomerangs had surprisingly returned to her mecha’s hands. Descending from the skies, the two boomerangs directly cut at Tang Wulin’s mecha.
‘She’s too powerful.’ Everything was within his opponent’s command. His opponent had gained complete control over the battlefield.
Tang Wulin had never faced such a powerful mecha master before. Were mecha battles not about suppressing the opponent with one’s own strength? How could there be such dexterous operating skills?
However, the more dangerous it was, the more Tang Wulin’s potential would be realized.
He tapped the ground with his alloy spear and flipped his body forcibly. At the same time, he unleashed his Bluesilver Emperor’s second soul skill. Scores of Bluesilver Emperors rose from beneath him and formed a Bluesilver Emperor forest which protected his mecha.
