Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 305


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 305: Martial Skills of Ancient Times (II)

Han Qian shook his head, “If we directly go on with a competition between the Demon Hunt Squads, since your internal spiritual energy has yet to reach 10,000, you will be able to participate. There are still five days before the opening of the Illusory Paradise, so the competition will begin tomorrow. Because of the lack of time, it is designed as a knock-out competition. Very simple, but also very cruel.”

Long Haochen nodded in response, “Grandteacher, I’ll register with you first then. All the members of our 21st general grade Demon Hunt Squad will be participating in this competition. Even if none of us manages to end up among those ten, it will at least serve as a good training exercise.”

Han Qian patted his shoulder, “You’re really a kid that causes others to worry. Let’s do it like this then. Even if you don’t end up in the top ten, your grandteacher will still look for a way to make up for you from our Temple.”

As they were speaking, extremely dense undulation of spiritual energy surged out from behind Long Haochen’s back, inside of the room. Immediately next, a surge of threatening killing intent instantly burst forth. Be it Long Haochen or Han Qian, both of them only felt their skin turn cold, filled with a chilliness coming out from the depths of their bones.

Master and disciple glanced at each other, filled with an extreme look of surprise, and Han Qian murmured, “This… This is…”

After a short time of surprise, Long Haochen was immediately in ecstasy, “It’s Cai’er! She broke through!” As he said this, he immediately turned back towards the room, rushing in.

Opening the door, Long Haochen found it difficulty to advance with the intense killing intent filling the room, but given the absolute feeling of trust between Cai’er and himself, he naturally felt no fear of being harmed by her, and still advanced without any hesitation.

On the bed, Cai’er was seated cross-legged, both her hands placed on her knees. On her palms and her forehead, a grey luster was faintly discernible, and on her back, a pair of immense black wings stretched out around.

Right, Cai’er’s wings were black. In stark contrast to Long Haochen’s brilliant golden glistening wings, her black wings engulfed all the surrounding light. Long Haochen and Han Qian had just gone in, but immediately felt as if those black wings absorbed their soul.

Han Qian was shocked to the extreme. Cai’er having now broken through the sixth step, she became truly the youngest person to ever break through the sixth step. She managed to reach the sixth step at an even younger age than Long Haochen, as she was still not even fifteen years old yet.

In the midst of Han Qian’s time of shock, Cai’er slowly raised her head, opening both her eyes.

Her originally brilliant grey eyes unexpectedly regained their luster, filled in a black pressing light. When her eyes locked onto Long Haochen’s eyes, a calm smile was drawn on her lips, in the midst of the endless aura of death.

This smile was only directed to Long Haochen; it was as if she didn’t even notice Han Qian’s nearby presence.

Seeing her moving eyes, Long Haochen was totally unable to hold back his emotions, tears gushing out madly, “Cai’er! Cai’er!!!”

Han Qian didn’t stay here any longer, discreetly moving back. With this warm scene happening between these two youngsters in the midst of the aura of death, he immediately went off to notify Ying Suifeng about the good news. Ever since Long Haochen broke through the sixth step, Ying Suifeng seemed to often talk about this subject.

Looking at Cai’er, Long Haochen advanced towards her in the midst of an intense killing intent. Without knowing whether it was because of being stimulated by Cai’er’s wings, Long Haochen’s back flashed in golden color, and immense golden wings came out. The whole room dazzled in gold and black, and intense fluctuations of spiritual energy seemed to soak like spring water.

With a light flap, Cai’er stood up on the floor.

So it has already been six months! This time has passed really quickly! Over this period, Long Haochen could only communicate by writing on the palm of her hand. Looking at the change on the color of Cai’er’s eyes, he realized that Cai’er had regained control over all of her senses.

Abruptly taking a step forward, and without minding the aura of death and the cold surrounding Cai’er’s body, he tightly held her in his arms, still unable to control his tears, as if he was feeling that he had failed to carry out his own duty towards her.

Letting him embrace her, Cai’er tightly held him back, murmuring, “Idiot.”

Long Haochen lifted up his head, glancing at her gentle eyes, “Call me an idiot again, I like hearing you call me an idiot.”

“Idiot!” Cai’er’s eyes looked somewhat blurred, as she called him another time. Immediately next, Long Haochen stuck his burning lips on her cold mouth, letting out all his warmth into her like never before.

The golden and black pairs of wings became their best fitted background. Cai’er was finally back, as the formidable Saint Daughter of Samsara who had finally recovered her complete combat ability. Long Haochen’s very own Cai’er being back, he finally sensed the pain in his heart coming to an end.

Their lips parting with each other, the two of them gasped for breath. This kiss had indeed lasted too long, and Long Haochen seemed to have been released of all the pain in his heart entirely in the process. Looking at Cai’er’s charming eyes, he felt as if he would never grow tired of watching them.

Cai’er tenderly helped him to wipe the tears flowing on his face, looking still red from having been kissed so suddenly, “Idiot, don’t you see that I am all right?”

Holding her both hands, he replied, “It’s my fault. If only I had been back earlier at that time…”

Cai’er shook her head, “Don’t keep going on with this foolish talk, many things are out of our control. At that time, I could only do that, or else, I wouldn’t even have gotten the chance to see you again. Speaking of which, I should really thank you for having brought us to the Tower of Eternity. The strange thing is that my Spiritual Stove of Samsara seems to have evolved from having absorbed the energy of death inside of the Tower of Eternity, which lowered the time I lost of my four senses.”

“Oh? Then, why haven’t you stayed all this time in there to cultivate? If your Spiritual Stove of Samsara evolved, who knows what effect could be produced from this?”

Cai’er replied, “Except from an increase in power, there should be other kind of boosts, but I don’t know about the specific details. However, I can ascertain that the death energy from the Tower of Eternity is effective in replenishing my Spiritual Stove of Samsara. The Spiritual Stove of Samsara seems to absorb the external energy through my body, among which the energy of death is the most important type. Normally, the amount of energy of death that comes in contact with us is very small and it is at least not as pure as within the Tower of Eternity. For this reason, when using the Spiritual Stove of Samsara, I am affected with the spiritual stove’s backlash, which absorbs my six senses’ force to unleash its power. If I can frequently absorb the energy of death contained within the Tower of Eternity, this should very possibly enable to lessen the backlash when putting the Spiritual Stove of Samsara fully to use.”

Greatly overjoyed, Long Haochen responded, “Really? Then it’s very good news. Your Spiritual Stove of Samsara is indeed formidable, but its backlash is enormous too. Over these past few months, I was worried everyday about your condition. Did you know about that? Hearing your voice again really feels great.”

Cai’er slightly smiled, “Idiot, I’m actually not worried about losing my six senses now that I have you to accompany me by my side. Even if my six senses are lost, I know that I am not alone now, and will be strong as I wait for the day of my recovery.”

Long Haochen rubbed her head, “What rubbish are you spouting out? Losing your six senses is just being dead. In the future, unless it is as a last resort, never use your Spiritual Stove of Samsara again. This time in the Illusory Paradise, we will definitely have to find you a better spiritual stove. Always relying on the Spiritual Stove of Samsara is just too dangerous.”

The aura of death in the air quietly vanished, and Cai’er’s black wings vanished accordingly. Softly nestling against Long Haochen, she said next, “No need to worry. As long as we are together, even death is nothing to fear.”

Long Haochen supported her shoulder with some reluctance, placing her in a seated position, “Just then, grandteacher came to look for me, telling me important things. I immediately have to gather everyone. It looks that our entrance to the Illusory Paradise will perhaps not go so smoothly… “ Arriving at that point, his eyes let out a trace of severity. A competition to select the best? Then come at me.

Because it touched upon the secret of the Illusory Paradise, only the Demon Hunt Squads were informed of that situation. The competition for the ten entries in the Illusory Paradise would take place in the biggest stadium in the training grounds of the Temple Alliance.

This place could of course not compare with the Great Stadium of the Alliance, but being a site of a hundred meters in diameter, it could contain a thousand people.

The attractive force of the spiritual stoves was just too great. Among the forty-two Demon Hunt Squads that came out, outside of the four that were at the King grade and the three that were at the Emperor grade, there were a total of two hundred and eleven people, a hundred and fifty applied. Those that didn’t apply were mostly priests or Demon Hunters of the fourth step or anything under the fifth step. Actually, all those who exceeded the fifth rank of the fifth step applied without exception. Trying out their luck, they’d believe in the slim possibility that they could possibly end up in the top ten.

A number of a hundred fifty. Though it appeared that many were present, only four victorious battles were necessary to end up in the top ten when everything was taken into account. With sufficient luck to encounter every time an opponent of the fifth step, perhaps they could come out through this victorious.

Long Haochen led his comrades to this stadium very early, since they were originally living pretty close.

The day before, when Long Haochen told his comrades about the circumstances behind this competition, everyone felt eager to give it a try. Although except Cai’er, they were still all at the peak of the fifth step of cultivation, the experience they had in the Tower of Eternity would finally bear its fruits here.

The day before, Long Haochen specifically led Cai’er to the Tower of Eternity, going through the fourth and the fifth tests with her help. Having recovered her four senses besides having reached the sixth step of cultivation, she once again challenged the red skeleton.

The results filled everyone with great surprise. Relying on her monstrous speed, Cai’er lasted even longer than Long Haochen against the red skeleton.


  • Asi k k

    Thanks

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you for the chapter!

  • Rob Engranajes

    Thanks for the chapter!

    Hao Chen and Cai’er are so cute! *^.^*

  • Baem LN

    Thanks for the chapter, Totobro and sponsors!

    Pull out your popcorns, everyone and start watching LHC all-kill raping scenes. Burn them through your eyes!!!

    • Evilage

      KA-ME-HA-ME-HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

      • Baem LN

        That is old school!

        LHC is Saitama from OPM in SYWZ verse!!!

        • Evilage

          Thats also old school!
          in a few days hero academia will probably get alot famous
          so LHC is Deku from boku no hero academia

          its kind of funnt that you said SYWZ verse while all of the authors novels are connected. So its one universe

          • Baem LN

            That is true though! I can’t catch up with anime nowadays. Mom’s babbling me.

          • Evilage

            hahaha
            same here~, gotta listen to parents thou
            anywho i dont think you’d want to miss boku no hero academia as it probably would be the anime for this year as one punch man was for last year. but then again you’d probably watch it when you have free time even if you didnt want to

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Boku no Hero Academia is definitely worth it if you liked the main character from The Breaker. It has similar kind of backgrounds and setup for the MC, but instead of Murim it is Super heros and instead of Inner Qi it is Super Powers. Also more fun action in Boku no Hero Academia since everyone’s powers are so unique. Personally I just love hero’s like them. People who have nothing but still try their damndest to do the right thing.

            Though having someone super pure like LHC is also nice every now and again too, :D.

          • Evilage

            Oh you liked the breaker.its one of my most favourites. Sad that its on a long break thou

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I just always loved the MC of it. I love how he always repeats to himself his teachers words “Fighting when you are strong is easy, anyone can do that. Its fighting when you are weak that is truly brave.”

            What was kind of funny was I first found the sequel and only after reading through a bunch of that did I find out about the prequel and read through that, lol.

          • Luke Confidential

            LHC is WAAAAY more badass than freaking Deku AND his mentor combined.

            Less powerful than the mentor true, but All Might is All Trash before the badass of LHC.

          • Evilage

            :’|
            he might be more badass then them but you cant say hero academia is bad

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair Deku and LHC are kind of on completely opposite sides of the hero spectrum. LHC started with all the talent while Deku started with none of it. If anything LHC is closer to fire/ice kid with more stable personality.

          • Blackcat

            Sadly hero academia is to young for me now days. Sadly Japanese need to learn from the Koreans and the Chinese and make manga and anime for a bit older crowd.

          • Evilage

            there is a lot of manga and anime aimed at adults.
            find them there are a lot of good ones too

  • Bruno

    Thanks!

  • Evilage

    Thanks for the chapter, time for the massive one sided battles for cai’er and Haochen, this chapter got me smiling
    it wouldve been fun if toto translated idiot as BAKA! just as a joke

    • Baem LN

      It would be so great if Toto use that word! The epitome word for all ‘dere’ type of girl.

      LHC in a competition? Super Saiyan MODE detected. He’ll get the electrified effet of 2nd stage of that mode in this competition, LOL!

      • Evilage

        Haoyue still inst back so no way of getting to super saiyan mode yet. And if i think about it that skeleton sensei is way stronger than the 7th steps of the temple, after fighting with him haochen and cai’er learned a few things and kicks their necks(trying to be a good kid :> )

        • Baem LN

          Well, that is true though.Is it possible that LHC will get two stoves in this arc? I think he will play the leader role and give all stoves to his teammates. WHICH I WOULD HATE IF HE DID NOT GET ANY FOR HIMSELF!

          • Jonathan Hurd

            So I will just come out and say there is no chance in hell that LHC can lose against some wet behind the ears 6th steppers. Especially since he has been routinely fighting and winning against 7th steppers and been sparring with Red Skele Sensei recently. So as long as LHC is in then his teammates are definitely in through the tower.

            As long as he can bring them in personally I think he will have them each fight for their own Spiritual Stoves. Its not that LHC doesn’t want to get his own Spiritual Stoves he is just unwilling to hog all the good things to himself. So I don’t think we have to worry about him coming out empty handed. He is pure hearted so he can put aside his desires to do the right thing. He still however has the desire, :D.

            My new bet since Cai’er got her senses back is that LHC secures at least 2 for himself and Cai’er secures two for herself. I was worried LHC would go less for himself because he would be doing Cai’er’s trials for her if her senses were gone, but she recovered at the right time wooh!

          • Evilage

            haochen’s innate talent increased when his fairy stove evolved and the same happen to Cai’er when she fused with the samsara stove, so what are the chances of her innate talent increasing more than 100 due to the evolution of the samsara stove?

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Honestly… No clue. There are just so many factors we don’t know about this evolution and its effects. The first problem is we have no real clue if they can go past 100 Innate Talent. The other problem is we don’t know if an Evolution of the Samsara Stove would continue to increase her Innate Talent…

            So personally I would give a very tentative yes…. , but there is no real way of knowing if surpassing a hundred is possible till Yating eventually gets her fourth evolution or they flat out state Cai’er is above 100 in the story as far as I can see.

    • Habakaki

      I’m not sure, it would be cool if they actually meet some hardship on some fights

      I want to see a team tourney fight

      • Evilage

        they would meet hardships later on
        but i doubt it will come in these competition
        i’m pretty sure LHC is gonna almost die numerous times

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • AnarchyDev

    I really to hope for some multiple release from this story… Thx for the chapter translation…

    And the scene must be like the fallen angel and an angel kissing each other.

    • Baem LN

      Toto said he will be free sometime soon so he can make double chapter release daily if enough number of chapter sponsored.

  • Dipak

    I would love to see some art based on this chapter.
    I feel like it would be an amazing scene when they embace each other with their contrasting wings

  • Majk

    I hope that the manhua will get to this quickly because I really want to see how this looks

    • Evilage

      dont think so anytime soon
      they still are at exocist mountain part which is aroun 180th? Chapter. And this is 305th
      unless they skip a huge number of chapters or something nkt any time soon but dont lose hope (°-°)7

      • Majk

        Now I feel like im forced to go there and put this idea into people’s heads to do it.
        Where you ask?
        To the den of vile beasts and creepy fans DEVIANTART!!

        • Jonathan Hurd

          It is a dangerous journey. Filled with peril. Though I may not be able to join you I will pray for your success.

        • Evilage

          may the force be with you my friend
          if you do get the treasure please do share it with us. for we will be cheering you all the way through your dangerous journey

  • ZaX

    Thanks for the chapter

  • Jonathan Hurd

    “A competition to select the best? Then come at me.”

    I love it when LHC goes serious mode, hahaha. Time to kick ass and chew bubble gum and I don’t think LHC’s world has invented Bubble gum yet….

  • Jonathan Hurd

    I gotta just ask am I the only one who feels that LHC and Cai’er are being cheated. Entering was their reward for defending and saving all those solders when none of the other 6th steppers in any other demon hunt squad had the courage to. Now he has to fight for his right which he would of had even without doing that. I swear Han Qian should reward him with something even if he does get into the Illusory Paradise. I mean share a decent Guardian Knight secret skill or two at least…

    • Evilage

      yes exactly
      and why is shen yue staying quiet? now that most of the heads of the temples know about their innate talent they should be allowed access without the competition. if all the temple heads want them to be part of the 10 who gets in who can protest against them? so they should be allowed access into the illusory paradies without the tournament unless the temple heads dont care about the future and want to die

      • Psyside

        Only 3 temples know its half
        Assasin Knight and Pirest

        • Evilage

          half? what?
          didnt grandpa hanyu tell that he is the scion of light in a meeting where an elder from each temple was present?

          • Psyside

            He only told the elder on the side when the meating was over.

          • Evilage

            nope i remember him and suifeng announcing that he is the scion of light and cai’er is the saint daughter. what he told the elder on the side was that LHC’s dad was Long Xingyu

          • Psyside

            No he didnt anounce that. They only said that they are the next in line to lead their temples. They didnt reveal that he is Scion or that she is Saint daughter

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I have to agree with Psyside that they didn’t come out and say it directly. Though to also be fair considering this is the first time in history anyone has announced successors this young and they are part of a demon hunt squads…. Well lets just say these kids have to be pretty damn extraordinary somehow and it is never a bad idea to be getting into their good graces early, imo.

    • Psyside

      I dont think its much of cheated considering this way more of them may earn a spot.
      Also people will always bitch so to avoid bitching they do this knowing they got a decent chance to win

      • Evilage

        but if they dont get the stoves they might not have enough power to beat the demons which might affect the future and eventually demons destroying the temple alliance so there is no rebellions

        • Psyside

          True but the way the story is hero always wins so no worry xD
          I agree tho if it was real life id say they are cheated but cos its a novel not much

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I love that your already thinking about the overthrow of the entire Alliance for LHC’s personal empire… Good thinking ahead :p.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Oh it just irks me to be like “here guys in recognition of your importance here is a gift’ and then be like “well…. we jumped the gun we’re taking the gift back, sucks to be you.” All I’m saying is they deserve some consolation prize, imo.

        • Baem LN

          Putting all things aside, it is good that a competition like this has been announced and done. Since they are all at the peak of fifth-step of cultivation, they need to break through the sixth-step’s bottleneck which will be faster if they push themselves to the limit by fighting seriously with stronger powerhouses.

          They will all get through the bottleneck then spam skeletons again until everyone get into 5,000th level of internal spiritual energy and gank that red skeleton.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Oh I agree. It is also going to be fun to see just how much they have refined their fighting ability after sparring with that Red Skeleton for so long. It is kind of shown in the next chapter by just how amazing McDull’s movements have become. Hes freaking dodging an AoE spell without even eating a crystal, lol. Looking forward to everyone else’s movements too, mwhahahahaha.

            It just really gets on my nerves that the priest head honcho is going back on his word and not doing anything to make up for it personally.

          • Baem LN

            McDull = Master of Dodgers!!!

  • Psyside

    “this should very possibly enable to lessen the backlash when putting the Spiritual Stove of Samsara fully to use”
    Yea like caier and LHC wernt a op combo enough… Lets make them more op.Give caier a stove evolution that makes her using it without penalty o/

    • Evilage

      That probably wont happen
      but it might lower the cost of using it (time or sense wise)

      • Baem LN

        That Tower is perfect for both of them. It boosts their speed of cultivation and the evolution of their spiritual stoves.

  • Zeth

    Thank you!

  • Dragon

    It Happened!!!! The kiss we were promised happend and it was worth it you go LHC kiss your Cai’er like you mean it. On a side note it would have been helariously funny/awkward if when they were kissing Cai’er’s grandpa showed up his reaction could have been priceless

    • Jonathan Hurd

      The amount of times his face would change would be priceless….

  • lordcattank

    thank you very much for the chapter

  • RedDragonX

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Zoro_YNWA <3

    The romance dosent even feel right
    Its just so weird for some reason
    I dk if its coz i am comparing it with MGA but still
