Chapter 41 : Mastery
The elite camp has missions but not training. They need to go and supress real pirates as official Marines.
The only difference is that they were led by Z personally.
But unless it’s a life and death situation Z wouldn’t interfere.
After all if he was to help them in every problem they wouldn’t be able to spread their wings.
“Half a month. I have to seize this opportunity.”
Roja took a deep breath and murmured and then again began to practice Soru.
His foot made a crack on the ground and Roja figure suddenly disappeared.
“Still hace to improve my precision.”
Again with the ground cracking Roja’s figure flashed.
“Precise enough but the speed isn’t enough. I still need to continue.”
Sweat dripping from the sidse of his cheeks. His eyes stared at his target in the courtyard.
Almost all of his soul was concentrated on his body, on his legs, Focused so he can make precise strength judgement and analysing each point of his failure so he can achieve the perfect Soru.
Ten times …
Dozens of times …
hundreds of times …
the grounf under Roja was throughly broken. you could even say that the entire courtyard was lower then before by half a foot.
Roja trained until his legs were numb then trained with the sword until his arms were numb and this continued for half a month.
In the courtyard Roja was standing at one of the corners his eyes were sharp as his sight was focused infront of him.
The courtyard floor has long since been destroyed and trampled by Roja.
the next moment Roja’s figure suddenly flashed turned into a blur and instantly apeared to his target exactly.
Roja was satisfied as he nodded as he said ” I have been able to control the distance and out of a hundred point i shoul get ninety.”
After using Soru and evaluated it. He suddenly looked at the sky and his foot stepped hard.
Roja’s figure floated as he seemed to be pedalling as he continued to get higher.
(Tl : Should i use Geppo or Moon Walk ?)
“Geppo is equivalent to using Soru continuiously. The difficulty is slightly higher. And the consumption of stamina is also great. i shoul get sixty point out of hundred as i can’t stay in the air for long. Well it’s enought for now”
Back in the courtyard Roja stretched his body while is face showed how satisfied he was. His original goal was evaluating his Soru as eighty point and as long as he could use Geppo then it’s fine but now it seem That his final result after a month training is more then he expected.
At the same time he mastered the five air compressing with the sword althought the sixth is somewhat rough but it’s still pretty powerful.
The sixth air compression seem like a barrier although Roja excel in the fifth but it’s nearly five percent from the sixth.
In addition Roja’s soul sword had turned + 2 in this half a month.
The third stage: smart sword of the soul +2
Attribute: Attack power +165, power +50, agility +50
Special attribute : All things in the world, turn to ashes – sword attack have additional fire damage (Evolution’s condition isn’t met)
Special attributes : Getsuga tensho – Can release a arc shaped red energy attack.
Energy : 8/140
In a month he strengthened the soul sword two times in addition the basic energy increased and the range of his fire is greater.
Looking at the property barrier Roja slightly pondered.
“Now i shouldn’t be any weaker then a rear admiral i may even be slightly better in some aspects and after practicing Soru and Geppo my speed increased a lot. But my defense isn’t as good as my attack.”
Roja has long been clear about his strength as he is not only a sword master but also have his fire damage. So he didn’t really care much about defense.
The best defense is offense.
As long as his attack are strong enough he wouldn’t need any defense.
A month ago Roja’s strength was at a Commodore level and now he touched the standard of Rear admirals and even was superior in some aspects.
(Tl : I don’t know why he changed this but well …! )
If Roja learn the two normal types of Haki he will be too powerful.
And in fact if he had good luck he may eat a stong devil fruit ability. (Tl : Is this foreshadowing ?!) (Ed:I really want to him steal Yama Yama no mi)
But to certain extent his improvement will be much slower and much more difficult than before.
The seven shichibukai , Marco and others may stand Against The admirals.
But wanting to stand at their level or even surpassing them is extremely difficult.
Roja is different from the people of this word as he have the soul system and the soul sword.
The so colled bottleneck he can directly ignore such a thing.
“Tomorrow the actual mission will start. So this is enough training for today.”
Roja took a deep breath and then returned into his room after drinking some water he directly went to rest.
The month of hell training has ended. Roja in that month didn’t get much rest as he sleep late and wake early to train so this could be the first time in a month that he rested. Which is a test of strength to not only his body but also his soul.
If it was someone else without the help of the soul sword then he won’t be able to continue this month of hell practice.
The strength will improve as long as you put the effort.
Those recruits only had a day or two in a month as hell practice which can’t be compared to Roja’s practice at all.
