RWBK Chapter 25 Quite Simple

It might be because Sabo’s perception is very keen, or maybe because his Observation Haki is very strong, either way, he noticed Rhodes’ gaze almost instantly, and couldn’t help but looked at him, and then was slightly taken aback, because he realized that he didn’t know Rhodes.

Sabo felt a little strange, but he still maintained his etiquette and said politely, “Excuse me, what’s the matter?”

“I don’t seem to know you.”

“You should be Sabo. I often hear Nia and the others mention you, and praise your strength and talent. They say that you are the strongest young man in the revolutionary army.” Rhodes said.

“Is that so?”

Sabo was slightly startled, but he knew Nia, “Are you a newly promoted reservist this year?”


Rhode smiled and said, “It’s nice to meet you. I hope we can learn from each other.”


Sabo was stunned, and a little dazed. What is this? Is it him or is this newly promoted reservist actually trying to provoke him to a challenge?

While he was still trying to figure out the situation, Rhodes had turned around and left, so he had to swallow the doubts in his stomach, and couldn’t help but laugh hard.

“This kid is really full of energy, he actually has the nerves to challenge me then leave.”

Sabo felt amused.

Although he is still young, his strength and ability have long been recognized by many senior leaders of the revolutionary army.

He has accomplished tasks perfectly many times.

Whether it is Haki or martial arts, he has his own unique ways. In the revolutionary army, let alone his peers, ordinary revolutionary army cadres are far from his opponents.

At this time, a reservist who has not yet turned into a regular was actually trying to provoke him!


Of course, Rhodes was clearly trying to provoke him, and he really wanted to learn from Sabo in order to accumulate the energy of the Book of Knowledge.

However, he is self-aware.

Currently, he may not be able to beat Sabo.

At a very early age, Sabo apprenticed under Dragon and then became a revolutionary army cadre. He has experienced countless battles and hardships.

At this time, I am afraid he has already mastered and formed his Haki and unique martial arts—Dragon Claw Fist, and his strength should be far superior to that of ordinary revolutionary army cadres.

If Sabo hits “Black Fist”, I’m afraid he will be instantly killed with one punch.

If Rhodes learns Haki, he would be able to narrow the gap by a lot.

“I should be fully qualified to practice Haki now, so I should go to Teacher Hack.”

After Rhodes was full, he found Hack and explained his purpose.

“You want to learn Haki?”

Hack was slightly startled and then said a little embarrassedly: “Sorry for being negligent. With your physical strength, you are fully qualified to practice Haki.”

In fact, he never is negligent, but he never thought that Rhodes would grow up so fast.

“It’s only been a little over two months.”

The Hack sighed in his heart.

He took Rhodes to a training room and began to introduce Rhodes to this new power, Haki.

In fact, Rhodes, who is a transmigrator, knows very well what Haki is, but he just doesn’t know how to use it.

In the world of pirates, there are three types of Haki, Kenbunshoku Haki, Busoshoku Haki, and Haoshoku Haki.

Among them, the Busoshoku Haki can strengthen the attack and defense and can be used to block the power of the devil fruit, and even touch the entity of the Logia fruit user.

Kenbunshoku Haki gives you the ability to sense the enemy’s voice. In a battle, you can use it to perceive or predict the enemy’s attack.

As for the final Haoshoku Haki, it can shock and even stun the enemy.

In the world of pirates, those who have the Haoashoku Haki are said to have the qualification to be the pirate king. Even in the new world where there are a lot of strong pirates, this kind of qualification is relatively rare.

In comparison, Busoshoku Haki and Kenbunshoku Haki are more common.

In the new world, there are many users who can use these two, and they have become must-have weapons.

After introducing the power of Haki, Hack briefly explained the awakening method of Haki.

“First of all, let’s talk about awakening the power of Haki. There are only two ways known to awaken it.”

“First, through battle! In the battle between life and death, when the potential explodes, there is a chance to awaken Haki. Of course, this method is not good. It not only depends entirely on luck but it’s also too dangerous.”

“The other method is to meditate. To control and restrain spiritual thoughts, and to actively perceive this power lurking in the depths of the body, and finally guide it out.”

“This method is gentler, but it takes a long time, and it may not even be accomplished for a lifetime.”

Hack said incessantly, “Usually, the combination of the two methods is the fastest way to awaken your Haki.”

“Try perception first. As a swordsman, you mastered the breath of all things, and your perception efficiency should be keener than a normal person.”

“First of all, adjust your breathing and let your mind be in a state of no self and no other…”

Although what he said was mysterious, Rhodes understood it easily.

He slowly closed his eyes, and at will, he entered a state of concentration.

Almost in the next instant, he felt the subtle breathing sound from the ground, equipment, his own clothes, and other objects, like a pulsating sound.

For the past two months, Rhodes has been in this state almost every day, controlling the power of thunder to strengthen his physique. The degree of his control over this state should be too high.

Following the perception method explained by Hack, Rhode gradually sank his thoughts into the depths of his body, and then he “saw” a blurry blood-colored world inside the depth of his inner mind.

In this world, there seems to be a special power that is just around the corner, longing for its master’s call.

It seems that as soon as he locked his eyes on it, it was pulled with him out of that world.

“It’s quite simpler than what I thought…”

Even in this state, Rhodes could think clearly.

It’s not as difficult as he imagined.

The next moment, Rhodes slowly opened his eyes with a strange expression on his face.

“Couldn’t you feel it? It’s normal.”

Hack thought that Rhodes was discouraged because he failed to perceive his Haki, and comforted him: “Although Haki is a potential power possessed by everyone, 99% of people will never be able to wake it up in their lifetime, let alone practice it.”

“So you don’t have to be discouraged. With your talent, you should be able to wake it up in a few months.”

Rhodes’ expression became even weirder. He stretched out a hand and said, “Is this it?”

“What do you mean?”

Hack was stunned for a moment, and an unbelievable thought flashed in his mind.

This thought made his mind stiff, his expression stiff, his limbs stiff; like a zombie, he slowly lowered his head.


He saw a scene that he will never forget.

He saw that on Rhodes’ open palm, there were traces of dark, oil-like things, like buds, dripping from under the skin little by little.

At first glance, he thought Rhode had some kind of black spot in his palm.

However, as a physique expert who is proficient in Busoshoku Haki, how could Hack not recognize it!

“Bu… Busoshoku Haki?!!”
