The first one to engage Mars was Takatsuki Sen. With what happened to Arata Kirishima, Takatsuki Sen was extra cautious.
At this time, Takatsuki Sen’s Kakuja form was different from before. The large Kagune on her back and the two claw-like Kagune on her arms had disappeared. Instead, the Kagune looked like a shield on Takatsuki Sen’s arm. She gave up all the offensive Kagune and focused on defense.
The appearance of Kagune depended on the imagination of the ghoul, but there were very few ghouls who could intentionally do this. Takatsuki Sen, as an SSS class ghoul, could certainly do this.
She held the thick shield with a diameter of one meter in front of her, she obviously made up her mind.
Mars snorted coldly, and hit Takatsuki Sen’s shield with a straight punch. This punch was massively strong, the wind it generated was scary.
Everyone felt like the earth was shaking.
Mars’s steel-wrapped fist was like a hammer as it hit Takatsuki Sen’s shield.
Takatsuki Sen’s shield was full of web-like cracks, and the iron fist had punched deep into the shield.
Takatsuki Sen, in her Kakuja shell, felt a huge force hitting her, and the outer Kakuja shell was distorted. Her legs sunk deeply into the stone platform, and gravel splashed around.
The powerful punch directly penetrated Takatsuki Sen’s shield and twisted the entire Kakuja shell.
If this punch were to hit a human’s body, it would only leave ‘juice’.
Su Xiao, who circled around, saw this scene, his eyes widened, he firmly decided not to get hit by Mars, ever.
Although Takatsuki Sen was badly shaken by this punch, she was still able to defend from Mars’s head-on attack. Arata Kirishima was killed by such an attack, so this was an amazing thing.
Takatsuki Sen, who was somewhat dizzy, concentrated. The big mouth on her Kakuja’s outer shell opened widely and bit Mars’s arm.
The red flames on Mars’s body surged, he seemed to be dissatisfied for not killing Takatsuki Sen in one hit.
“The experiment No.3 have been improved? There are biracial signs, hmm, nice work.”
Mars looked at Takatsuki Sen as if he was looking at an experiment.
“But the empire prohibits the holy warriors from eating each other. If you lose your mind, you are not qualified to be called holy, so go and die!”
Mars raised his other iron fist and wanted to hit Takatsuki Sen’s head.
But Takatsuki Sen was not fighting alone, there was also Priest and Arima Kisho besides her.
Arima Kisho silently rushed to the side of Mars and used the Quinque ‘Owl’ to hit Mars’s chest, almost at the position of the ‘source’.
Priest’s angle of attack was more direct, he used his sharp Kagune and aimed for the gap in Mars’s in waist armor.
When the two attacked Mars, Su Xiao had already circled behind Mars, activated azure steel shadow, causing dragon flash in his hand to shine with a pale blue light, and slashed at Mars’s neck.
There were several precise links in the armor of Mars’ neck, so the defense there should be weak.
Takatsuki Sen kept Mars busy from the front, Arima Kisho and Priest were on the sides of Mars, while Su Xiao went straight for the enemy’s neck.
Mars, who was in the center of the four, was not afraid at all. He lifted a leg and stomped on the stone platform. It was Mars’s skill ‘ground shock’.
The entire stone platform was moving.
A shock wave spread out to the surrounding area. Su Xiao, who felt dizzy, was holding his sword, trying to stab the enemy, but there were large white dots in his vision, this may be what others referred to as ‘seeing stars’.
Not only Su Xiao, but also the others, they all had their attacks interrupted.
For three of them this was not too big of a deal, but Takatsuki Sen was in danger. She was still biting Mars’s arm.
Mars’s steel hand grasped the neck of her Kakuja shell and twisted.
A lot of blood splashed over Mars’s black armor as Takatsuki Sen’s Kakuja shell was ripped off. But he was not finished yet, he threw away the head of the shell and reached into to the Kakuja’s chest, he wanted to take something out.
The big steel hand stirred in the Kakuja shell for a while, then ripped something out.
Takatsuki Sen was dragged out of her Kakuja shell, she had been caught by her long hair in the air.
The shell of her Kakuja form fell down.
The pain woke Takatsuki Sen from the dizziness. After seeing the steel man in front of her, Takatsuki Sen turned desperate.
On the side, Arima Kisho and Priest were like drunk, their bodies were swaying from side to side, and they walked haltingly. Takatsuki Sen, who noticed their state, was completely desperate.
“It seems that this has some research value, the body should be maintained.”
Mars held Takatsuki Sen in front of his face, and with his thumb and index finger, he twisted Takatsuki Sen’s head trying to crush Takatsuki Sen’s head.
The massive force exerted from both her cheeks forced Takatsuki Sen to use all of her strength to resist.
Even the Kakuja shell’s head was ripped off by Mars, not to mention Takatsuki Sen’s physical head.
At this time, Takatsuki Sen was like a chicken, weak and helpless.
Just as Takatsuki Sen’s head was about to pop, a white sword light reflected into Takatsuki Sen’s eyes.
Takatsuki Sen swore that she was never as pleased from seeing a sword like at this time. If she managed to survive this, she vowed to get a good sword for herself.
Su Xiao had a higher intelligence attribute than the ghouls, so the time of dizziness was shorter for him.
He silently jumped behind Mars, holding his sword in both hands and stabbing at the back of Mars’s neck.
There was a gap in the back of Mars’ neck, and the thin blade of dragon flash was able to pierce into it.
The sword bypassed the outer armor and stopped about ten centimeters in. It felt as if dragon flash was stabbed into jelly [E/N: In case this comes up later, it originally said “colloidal substance”] and every bit in became even more difficult to pierce.
Mars groaned and released Takatsuki Sen, his two hands grabbed towards the back of his neck.
Su Xiao, who saw the approaching hands, was afraid. Takatsuki Sen was like a helpless chicken in Mars’s hands, if he was caught, he would be done for.
Su Xiao’s placed his feet on Mars’s back and jumped high, his body sailed through the air and he smoothly landed a distance away from Mars.
Not catching Su Xiao angered Mars a bit, the red flames on his body grew.
Mars’s red eyes swept around and he stared at Priest.
Just as Priest wanted to retreat, his arms were grabbed by Mars.
The bones of Priest’s arm were instantly shattered, but Priest was not a normal person. His Kagune immediately moved toward Mars’s head.
Before he was hit, Mars had already exerted some strength to move his arm and threw Priest away.
Priest suddenly felt the sky was circling and his body flew at high speed.
Su Xiao, who had just dodged Mars’s attack, had his eyes widen at this scene. Mars actually used Priest as a weapon and threw the ghoul at him.
Su Xiao wanted to dodge, but Priest was already about to hit him.
Su Xiao was hit and sent flying, slamming into the rock wall behind him. Su Xiao felt his whole body was close to falling apart. Although he was dizzy from the impact, Su Xiao still jumped up and adjusted his position.
His back was in pain. He tasted blood, and he felt faint.
Su Xiao noticed that Mars did not rush at him, and let out a sigh of the relief.
Mars was too strong. If there were no gaps in the armor that he could use, they would have no hope of winning.
Priest, on the side, also stood up, with an arm hanging limply at his side.
Arima Kisho and Takatsuki Sen also slowly moved closer, it would be impossible to defeat the monster in front of them on their own.
Su Xiao shouted to attract the attention of Mars. The other three were shocked. ‘This guy is crazy’, they thought.
Su Xiao suddenly had one more thing in his hand as he stared at Mars.
“How about I give this thing to you, and you let us go? This is our country’s ‘treasure’.”
During the conversation, Su Xiao threw something forward. The other three people were puzzled when they saw the thing in the midair, the guy had surprisingly hidden one.
Mars caught the thing that Su Xiao threw, and checked what Su Xiao called ‘treasure’. He did not recognize this thing.
“What is this weird thing?”
From Mars’s words, it could be guessed that he had existed for many years, so there was no chance for him to recognize the thing in his hands.
No modern person would get close to the thing in Mars’s hands.
Su Xiao, in the distance, had a detonator in his hand.
“This is our treasure, pay attention to its texture.”
After saying that, Su Xiao pressed the detonator.
