… that I’ll post a teaser again. Because I was stupid and couldn’t use 4 hours of freetime today to finish it (forgot my transportable internet) I have to double-check everything I wrote in this time now … so it’s gonna be some time left until chapter 175 is ready. So take the first 5 pages for now ^-^
175th Episode – 2 vs 2
（Uh～ I’ve used it…… But this way I probably will suffer damage……) (Muir)
Muir considered the risk of her technique, bitterly staring at Ionis, who was sent flying away. At the same time, it seemed like she was regretting that she couldn’t also use something that dealt great damage. ((Liberal Trans. In regard of the following sentence I think it means she regrets that she couldn’t hurt Ionis some more before she jumped away. → ch. 174))
By all rights, at the time she invoked 《Thunderclap conversion》 any person nearby would fell victim to the electrical discharge, but Ionis certainly seemed to have some oversensitive sense of danger, so she immediately had distanced herself from that situation.
Although some electrical energy of the impact flowed through her body, she got almost no damage from it. Her use of 《conversion》 wasn’t about to expire yet and she planned to defeat her opponent in that time, but that speculation ended as Muir was quite perplexed.
「It’s…… 《Conversion》?」 (Io)
The question was asked by Ionis.
「Yeah, even if it wasn’t successfully useful yet I decided to give my best!」
Apparently, she wasn’t able to perform a full-body 《Conversion》 such as Leowald did. As she couldn’t successfully use it, one could guess that she wasn’t able to use that sort of 《Conversion》. ((TL: I had to research レオウード (reouhdo) – Leowald – and thus I’ve come to notice that ch. 192 is called Hiiro vs. Leowald …))
「…. I’m also serious here.」 (Io)
The atmosphere of Ionis changed completely as her body tells her opponent to come at her. And then, before anyone noticed, she appeared before Muir’s chest. ((TL: first sentence involves something like “performing a 180” and “driving out your opponent” – I changed it a bit.))
Her fist pierced Muir’s belly. Surprisingly, she literally perforated the body. Although screams were heard from the beast-kin’s side watching the fight –
「…. Hu?!」 (Io)
The first one to have her face distorted in utmost surprise was Ionis.
You couldn’t see anything like blood from the belly that should have been thoroughly pierced, and apart from that Ionis clearly didn’t feel any resistance.
Some time ago the left shoulder seemed to have transformed into thunder due to 《Conversion》, but this time it was the attacked belly that changed.
Ionis immediately tried to leave, but –
Ionis’ arm was firmly caught with both hands and she couldn’t remove it from Muir’s body.
「I won’t let you escape!」 (Muir)
If she escaped now, Muir felt that Io wouldn’t be caught again. That’s why she grabbed her arm with both hands, transforming them into thunder, as she didn’t want her to shed her magnetism.
「Heeeeeeere～！」 (Muir) ((Here! – but extremely prolonged. Could change it into sth like “Take this”, but …))
High Voltage was spurting from Muir’s body. ((Well, instead of “high voltage” it would rather be “extreme discharge”, or “tremendous discharge”, but I’ve used that combination far too often up to now. It’s the authors fault for repeating the same wording again and again.))
Ionis cries out in pain as severe pain runs through her body.
Muir strongly closed her eyes, desperately summoning up all of her strength. As it is, Ionis would be unable to fight any more, so she tightly clenches her teeth.
Suddenly the 《Phantom》 bumped into Muir’s arm that was grabbing her. Thus Ionis got free from her restraint and instantly distanced herself with all her might.
「Haa haa haa……」 (Io)
While Ionis falls to her knees, catching her breath, Muir grimaces in pain because of her arm. The wings on her head also transformed, returning to the original kemonomimi. ((TL: Kemonomimi = Beast ears. Like nekomimi, but without the specific race. (neko as in “cat”) … I’d recommend the song “nekomimi switch” for everyone who doesn’t know what I’m talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-BYPUeBelw ))
（I-is that so……. by magnetizing my arm you made that weapon to hurl at me…..） (Muir)
The 《Phantom》 that fell onto the ground had been attracted to Muir’s arm using 《Magnetic Magic》. Having her movement sealed, Ionis somehow managed to counterattack using this method.
Although it was rather the clothes than the arm itself that had been effected by her magic.
（B-but just dealing with it calmly won’t do…..） (Muir)
Since her body supposedly was numb of lightning Ionis wasn’t able to move at that time. That’s why she used that method to make her weapon fly, just to break the impressive status quo.
Calmly analyzing the situation, Muir was just astonished. And after the 《Phantom》 hit her right arm, maybe even damaging the bone, severe pain runs through it every time she moves it even just a bit. For the time of this duel, her right arm would probably be useless in it’s current state.
「That….. was….. a stupid…. surprise…」 (Io)
Ionis had planned to escape much further, but received the lightning attack directly and suffered significant damage when Muir grabbed her.
「However…… with this it is Io’s win!」 (Io)
As the 《Phantom》 had fallen to the ground, Muir’s 《Kōen》 went towards Ionis by themselves. Then, as a magnetic field evolved around her, they charged at Muir with terrible speed.
That’s it, for now. Perfect spot to end a teaser, isn’t it?
