Chapter 143: The encounter and the battle
Roja’s task was to monitor the beast pirates, he didn’t need to initiate a fight, and when he faced them he should avoid them.
But will Roja really do that?
Roja’s hands were itchy, he wanted a good opponent for his practice.
In addition, Kaido was still battling with Shanks, He didn’t know when he would come back, but even if he was here why not fight?
(Tl: Because this is f**king Kaido we’re talking about.)
The most powerful thing about Kaido is his immortal body, but since Whitebeard could defeat him them he should have a weakness, and this weakness probably is his slow movement and the like.
Even if it’s difficult for Roja to defeat him, he has confidence that he could fight with for some time, and also even if he couldn’t beat him he can escape and Kaido won’t be able to hold him.
The Marine found Kaido troublesome because even if they could suppress him, he won’t lose a thing and his body would heal but they might lose many lives.
Can Roja alone beat Kaido? He didn’t have Many people with him and also he wasn’t an Admiral, but among the threat of the Yonko, Kaido held the smallest amount towards him.
Not far From Roja’s warship, The pirates’ ships were under the command of Jack, one of the three right hands of Kaido known as Disasters, he is Jack the Drought.
Their goal wasn’t originally Roja’s warship, but they directly changed their course toward them.
“Sheepshead-sama, we still have important this to do, let’s let the others clean up the Marines.”
A pirate nervously said to Sheepshead.
Sheepshead glanced at the Pirate and said:” Those Marine aren’t here to fight, they are here to monitor our movement and let the others handle the rest. What will we do?”
“However, Jack-sama is still waiting to send that thing over…” The Pirate said nervously to Sheepshead.
Hearing this, Sheepshead coldly looked at the pirate and said: “What is your meaning? Jack isn’t here, Do you think I will screw things up?”
Sheepshead respected Jack, But if one of his pirates questioned his authority, it would be impossible for him to tolerate.
Sheepshead was angry, the pirate didn’t dare to speak anymore as he revealed a touch of heartlessness, he couldn’t only turn to the warship in the distance and exposing a ruthless look.
Since it’s already decided, then he will first dispose of the warship then go back to what had to do.
The warships that appeared in front of the beasts pirates the past few years were completely exterminated.
After getting in their Fire range, the beast pirates were first to open fires, a large number of cannon balls flew toward the warship.
Roja saw that the enemy opened fire, he didn’t rush like always but instructed the soldiers to also open fire. The cannon balls didn’t reach the Ship as the of them were stopped.
After all, this was the new world, not the west blue, all the officers were stronger, even a captain from here was stronger than a rear admiral from the west blue.
“This is really better.”
This time, Roja didn’t stop the Marines under him from fighting. In the past, he was always fighting alone, As they weren’t strong enough.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
As the ships were getting nearer and nearer, the Shells were getting harder and harder to block. Roja just drew his sword randomly.
Under Hiru’s strikes, the seven to eight cannonballs stopped in mid-air then split in two.
After stopping those Shells, Roja looked at the Pirate ship in the distance and waved his sword.
Today, Getsuga Tensho was almost like a normal attack for Roja, The strike was huge, the same size of the warship as it flew toward the pirates’ ship.
The Huge sword Energy split the sea apart and made a terrifying deep gully.
Sheepshead who was on the deck of his ship, saw the strike coming toward him and was surprised, apparently he didn’t expect to encounter a master on that warship.
Seeing this Strike, he knew that the one who unleashed it wasn’t an ordinary Marine.
However, Sheepshead had to react or else his ship would be split by the huge strike, so he could only try and block that attack.
The next moment, Sheephead two arms deformed and were turned into sheep horns, those horns suddenly turned black with a metallic luster as he rushed towards Roja’s strike.
The other pirates saw the strike and were terrified, and were more horrified when Sheepshead went to block the strike head-on.
Sheepshead bit his teeth tightly and used his two hands to try and force the strike away.
