Orleans Forest (Intermediate)
After a long 90 minute journey, Yuuto finally arrived at Orleans Forest (Intermediate). Compared to travelling to Ragul Mountains, there was less of a climb. The consumption of stamina was not great, he thought. Orleans Forest was surrounded by the beautiful nature, and the murmur of a river could be heard. Yuuto thought that if there were no monsters were here, it would be a great spot to have a leisurely picnic.
(However, we can't afford to do that)
They encountered monsters the moment they arrived.
Threat LV 7
Threat LV 10
There were only one each. The skeleton was a monster that had an apt name, as it looked just like a human skeleton.
(What should I say……it reminds me of the sample skeleton in the science room of my elementary school.)
He assumed that the sharpened the bone on its right hand acted as a bone mace. In the end……he didn't want to meet the creepy monster at a street during the night.
On the other hand, Lizardman was a monster that looked like a huge lizard that walked on its two hind legs. It did not have a weapon, just like the skeleton, and instead had sharp claws on both hands. Its entire body was also covered in hard scales. It seemed like a monster that had a balanced offensive and defensive abilities.
「Master! Please be careful! Monsters appearing in the intermediate area are stronger than the monsters from the beginner area! 」
Spica advised him with the booklet received from the guild in one hand. Recently, it had become Spica's role to give information about the monsters.
「Eh? Come again? 」
But before Spica finished her explanation, the corpse of the Skeleton and the Lizardman fell to Yuuto's feet.
Spica stood dumbfounded as she raised her gaze from the booklet. Even Sylphia had been unable to follow Yuuto's fight with her eyes.
「No〜. After all, a humanoid monster is easy to fight. They feel weaker than a slime.」
Yuuto's words were not an exaggeration, as he had learned all the good things from different martial arts while mastering the 《Konoe Ryuu Taijutsu》. Yuuto had learned over 60 different martial arts including wrestling, boxing, savate, aikido and jujitsu, but he never learned how to fight something of an irregular shape. Yuuto had only been fighting till now using his superior battle sense, but to show the maximum effectiveness of the 《Konoe Ryuu Taijutsu》, he needed a humanoid enemy.
Since both Lizardman and Skeleton were humanoid monsters, Yuuto could show the one on one martial arts that he had practiced till now. He had destroyed the body of the Skeleton by using 《Hard Fist》. Yuuto could even crush muscle covered bones with his 《Hard Fist》, so bare bones were no match for him. On the other hand, he had defeated the Lizardman using 《Soft Fist》. It is irrelevant if the outer body is covered in hard scales if the internal organs are destroyed.
Hard Fist and Soft Fist. By using two different styles, Yuuto had defeated the monsters in God speed.
「As expected of master! Frankly……you are so amazing that I don't know what to say! 」
「That was amazing! It won't be an exaggeration if I said that master's martial arts has reached the level of Gods.」
「……Hmm, you are exaggerating it.」
Yuuto did not feel that he deserved the praise from the two beautiful girls. However, it couldn't be helped if they were happy, right? So after Yuuto finished stripping the materials, he walked deeper into the forest looking for the next prey.
