Ep.125 Horrible Disaster
An ordinary day in Korea
As ever, it was a normal day, with the sun shining on the city.
It was certainly a normal day.
Before the sky suddenly darkened shortly after the leader of Wolgwanggyo delivered a message to the nation.
A darkened sky.
Flying at full speed through the darkened sky, Stardus shuddered with ominousness.
Under the darkened sky, which was full of sunshine a moment ago, a supernatural phenomenon happened.
‘…What the hell is going on?’
Right now, Korea was unable to reach out to the association because all communication was cut off.
In the silent darkened sky, she flew toward the continuous mysterious noise.
At the moment, what she knows is that something has appeared on one side of the darkened Seoul.
And since it appeared, all communication has been lost on the city side.
Anyone can tell something serious is happening.
With such a serious expression, Stardus passed through the dark sky with her blonde hair flying.
She soon arrived close to the scene.
At the sight of the moment, her body stiffened.
In the darkened city.
Flying fast enough to see the city with her own eyes, she was finally able to see “it” standing in the middle of the city.
“….What’s that thing?”
It seemed like a disaster had come.
“Sob… W-What is this?”
An iron-scratching noise
A darkened city. Many people got tangled up with each other, trying to escape the epicenter of the sound even just a little bit.
And, in the center.
In the darkened night sky, under the white moonlight shining alone.
Something purple, bizarre, and huge stood in the middle of the city.
No matter how you look at it, it cannot be a human.
A hideously raised pink blood vessels
A huge body darkened with purple
A grotesquely twisted face and body
Only its eyes are burning bright red.
And it is.
It was raising its arms toward people.
The people in front of it, which got sucked by invisible forces, were squirming in the air.
At the same time
Something incredible happened.
Suddenly something white, translucent, began to escape from people floating in the air.
Something white with a screaming look on the face
And that white thing that got out of people got sucked into the purple ‘thing’ that was standing in the center.
At the same time, everyone in the air was likeless and fell to the ground.
As if their soul was missing.
The giant howling purple thing.
In the middle of a darkened city, as if the electricity was dead.
It destroyed countless buildings and the city step by step with its massive size.
And around it.
Countless people who were sucked by it while running were distressed in the air and soon lost their souls, then began to fall to the ground one by one.
People ran away screaming in the dark. Smoke rose from all sides.
And standing in the center, eating people’s souls and destroying the city, the strange creature seems like it came from hell.
And, people who have fallen coldly.
It’s like the hellhole(地獄圖*) that has descended on the people. *TN: Divine Comedy Illustrated by Botticelli
A dark, shriek-filled city.
In a place where only the purple color of the mysterious creature and its burning red eyes are visible.
Crossing the dark night sky, a yellow light flew from somewhere and fell on the purple monster that was standing on the ground.
She hit the monster from hell that no one seemed to be able to stop.
She was the hero, Stardus.
Soon the monster stumbled in shock, and people who were suffering in the air fell to the ground.
They, who had not lost their souls, began to run away in all directions, screaming again.
“Hic… Fuck, help me!”
People were running away.
And soon when the purple monster turned to them again.
“Your opponent is me, you monster.”
The blonde woman looking at him with burning eyes, she began to turn its attention on her from behind.
Stardus’ face soon was contorted at the creepy sound of the monster.
Then she swung her fist at it again with all her might.
A tremendous roar was heard at that moment.
The surrounding area was covered in hazy smoke due to the shock wave of the fist.
Having been hit with her fist orthogonally, it was still standing still in place, with its face turned toward her as if it had not been affected.
And at the same time, when Stardus encountered its red eyes, unknowingly stiffened herself.
Shadow Walker’s voice was suddenly heard from behind.
At the same time as she threw herself.
From its red eyes, a purple ray of something came out and shot to where she was.
When she looked back, the person she saw.
“Haa… Haa… Shadow Walker?
“Yes. I’m sorry I’m late. Ha… Fuck. What’s going on all of a sudden while sleeping?”
As if it clearly perceived them as enemies now, the thing focused on the two.
Looking at it, Shadow Walker said quickly.
“Stardus, I’m going to tell you something quick my ability is not normal right now. Maybe it’s because the night now is artificial, so my output is weird. I heard that only half of here is darkened and all other countries are normal, but I think that’s the effect.”
As his words were finished, it rushed at them.
As the two fell apart in a hurry, Shadow Walker last reported to Stardus.
“I’ll support you by moving people to a safe place first, so hang in there!”
After his shout, Shadow Walker blended into the darkness and disappeared.
And now Stardus was fixed its sight.
And when it lifted its one hand.
People who were somewhere in the city center were sucked by something invisible, and they started screaming and losing their souls.
Watching the unrealistically awful scene, Stardus clenched her fists again and jumped at the huge purple thing.
As her eyes met with it for a moment, her head started to ring for a while. But she wasn’t lifted into the air and screamed like other people.
As she clenched her teeth and approached it again, avoiding it a few times in the air, it also clenched its fist and began to deal with Stardus.
That’s how the blood fight began.
In the dark, the battle started fiercely, with yellow and purple lights intertwined.
And Stardus was up against it.
She clenched her teeth.
It’s too strong.
No matter how much she attacks, it seems like the force is barely going in, and the attack it makes is almost murderous, perhaps because of the purple aura around it.
It’s a bizarre twist that doesn’t already seem to overlap with any life on Earth.
Even in the midst of a battle with her, it raised the people around it with supernatural power and began to take away and absorb something like their spirit.
And after a few attacks with it, she intuitively realized.
…That she would never win this.
‘……….How come this happened.’
Although she had already sensed the defeat.
And yet she came at it.
…Even if she dies here.
She’ll save the last one just before she dies.
Just like that.
Stardus, the battle for her life has begun.
A darkened night sky
In the middle of a fierce battle down in the city.
Standing on the roof of a nearby building, I looked down.
“…Shitty thing happened.”
The city was drowned in darkness
The one in the middle is the soul eater, one of the final weapons of Wolgwanggyo, which looks truly awful in real life. And it’s fighting with the yellow light of Stardus somehow.
And the city falling apart at the same time.
Black smoke was all over the town.
The fallen bodies whose souls were taken away.
Screams could be heard from all around
Shadow Walker is doing something but it isn’t very helpful.
Those whose souls are being taken away are being strangled in the air.
Stardus is obviously lagging behind.
Even the purple giant which was smurfing hard was proving that it was one of the decisive final weapons, which shouldn’t have yet come out.
Looking at that terrible hellhole.
I mumbled, quietly.
“…I thought it was a real disaster, but it’s not that bad.”
Seriously. What is this?
I was really scared when I saw the sky darken, but as I came panting, there was only one soul eater.
Considering that dozens of them popped out in the final battle in the original, this is just cute.
It doesn’t even look like it’s evolved because it hasn’t even absorbed enough souls yet, but once I kill that in that state, all the people who have fallen now will be revived. In fact, once I kill it, there won’t be any casualties.
And it’s also just fighting, so everyone’s taken to the floor, and with its weakness that I’m holding, it’ll die with a few shots. Like all gimmick bosses.
So, it looks like it’s almost on the verge of extinction, but in reality, it’s over if I just shoot a silver bullet with the sniper gun I brought with me.
There’s nothing to be scared of though…?
So I stood on the roof, and started aiming at it with my sniper gun
…It’s kind of early though.
Well. Tsk, alright. Good timing then.
I should take advantage of this opportunity.
Why don’t we get the timing to shoot this thing and pretend that Stardus knocked it down in a dramatic moment?
…Not so bad though?
And the time when Egostic was already on the rooftop, relaxing and thinking about this and that.
‘…I should have left a will in advance.’
She had already given up everything and was fighting with a surrendered look.
