Chapter 40 : Soru and Geppo
After returning his sword Roja didn’t care listening to those veteran talking and just turned around and directly left the square to his room.
He didn’t have to attend the training any more as the only thing he need to attend is the missions other than that he got the freedom to do whatever he want.
Roja was used to practicing alone.
Garp wasn’t home anyways and Roja has long since got used to this lifestyle. He rushed into the bath and then directly went to sleep.
The next morning .
Roja woke up early, washed up and directly went to the courtyard.
The courtyard wasn’t small and wasn’t big either.
After measring for a moment Roja found that the courtyard was enough for him to practice soru.
“Soru, A high movement technique … Geppo a movement technique which let you step on the air …”
“Lest first start learning Soru.”
Roja came to the side of the courtyard and carefully remembered the thing Z pointed to him.
Soru practice is infact very simple. As long as he master some of the details he could turn it into his personal move. The reason why most people think it’s hard is because it need an almost non-human strength.
As long the body strength could reach the standard then the practice would be simple.
Recalling the way to practice Soru from Z’s word Roja suddenly kicked the ground and cracks apearing while he sprang forward.
“No , The power wasn’t concentrated in one spot but was scattered all over.”
The ground once again cracked after Roja’s kick. Roja’s figure sprang forward again but it seem a little better then before but still far from the standar Soru.
Roja didn’t think he’d be able to learn Soru directly. So he continued to practice without feeling down at all.
Soru consumption of stamina is far from what Roja could imagine.
He thought that no wonder not anyone could learn the six powers of the Marine.
Not only does someone need non-human phisical strength he also need tremendous stamina above all.
Practicing Soru for a moment Roja’s legs turned completly numb. He almost can’t feel them anymore.
After feeling that Roja’s face changed to excitement. You should know that Roja now could do more than a thousand squat and wouldn’t feel anything as he can’t reach the limit anymore using that methode.
But practicing Soru for a moment made him reach his limit again in a moment.
Reaching the limit wasn’t a bad thing instead it’s a good thing because that would let him develop his potential more.
So the Marine’s six power are also good tools to tap the potential of the body. It really was a masterpiece movement technique.
Roja now will focus on breaking his body limit as originally breaking the limit for him was too difficult now so this was a huge opportunity for him to become stronger.
Half a month quickly passed.
In this half a month Roja practiced Soru and Geppo to break the limit in his legs and practiced the sword like usual for his upperbody practice.
For normal people breaking the limit times after time would make them reach a mental breakdown. But here comes the role of his soul that is far stronger than ordinary people.
This half a month Roja strength leaped and he successfully could use Soru but he couldn’t contol it yet.
Roja could directly turn into a shadowy figure as he used Soru now, but he still couldn control the distance after using it.
Using a target Roja sometimes get behind the target or in front of it.
“Practicing is simple but mastering is harder.”
Once again he used Soru. He flashed and apeared in the courtyard on the other side. He shook his head as he almost hit the wall.
Purely mastering Soru and the other six power of the Marine will be enough to make you a master in the seas Like Z and Garp they mastered The six power to superb level.
“After matering i will practice Geppo or Moonwalk”
In addition to Soru Roja wanted to practice Geppo but he still had along way to go as he didn’t master kicking the ground let alone master kicking the air.
After practicing Geppo, Roja almost could reach the second floors window.
After doing that a little bit of wind made him loose his balance and fall.
After that Roja wasn’t ambitious anymore as he decided to master Soru then he could practice Geppo.
In fact the elite camp did have a separate rooms to help individual practice but Roja didn’t choose to practice there even if he could practice Soru there, he won’t be able to practice Geppo.
Roja wanted to use half a month to master Soru and Geppo and then he wanted to start the practice of Haki. But as a result of him not being able to master them in half a month. The Haki practice needs to be delayed.
Well this result wasn’t bad either.
As Haki practice also needed strength And the practice of Soru and Geppo will help him improve his strength by breaking the limit of the body. So after he master Soru and Geppo the Haki practice would be much easier.
In addition Roja could compress the air five times when he swings his sword. And trying to practice compressing the air for the sixth time He could tell that it was harder then all of the previous together.
In addition to that in this half a month Roja’s soul sword strengthened once.
The third stage: smart sword of the soul +1
Attribute: Attack power +150, power +45, agility +45
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 : 47/130
After entering the third stage the basic attribute strengthen much more then before.
In the fourth and fifth stage later for every +1 the basic attribute will increase more.
“Energy is necessary for every strengthening and that will increase every time so it’s normale for the basic attribute to increase accordingly.”
Suddenly Roja thought of something.
“Half a month later there will be mission so i will have to kill some pirates ?”Thinking to here Roja’s mouth made a slight smile and said “Another half a month should be enough for me to master Soru.”
