Chapter 8 "Electigra, the Lightning Beast"
A Happy Holiday to ya! Is it the fishing that caught your eye? Or was it the sexy me!?
** Facing the beasts upon landing!! They’re in even greater danger!! **
Electigra - GRRR...
Gatou - E...Electigra!?
Aren't they the vicious beasts that'll even attack dragons...?
Lu-...Luca! Do something...
Luca - This is my first time, as well. I wonder what I should do...
Gatou - Hey! Don't just take off on your own!
Shino - In this situation, the one who makes the quickest getaway…
Everyone go in the woods.
Gatou – Go...Gotcha.
Electigra - GROOAH
Gatou - Shit! They found us, already!!
Dammit, they're catching up.
I'll use my metal board...
WHAAT!!? It won't float!!
Shino - We're not in the city, that board's useless here!
Gatou – Oh yeah! It won't float without the magnetic field.
Luca – Then, I'll...
Make some use of it!!
Shino - Ah...
Luca - MEGYABABABA
Shino - You...
Shino – The Electigra is a beast that can discharge high amounts of electricity to paralyze its prey!
It's a natural enemy to the spreading of metals that people even call it the Man-eater Lightning Beast!
Luca – Tell me that sooner...
Gatou - We...We're surrounded!!
Shino - Don't panic! We'll find a way out, somehow!
Bejeena - Well then, Zuou...
Let us see, of the 3776 examinees this year...
How many will be able to safely land, escape the forest of lightning beasts...
And finally pass onto the second examination site?
I do hope it won't be zero again...
Gatou - You...You sure we can find a way outta this!?
Luca - Tha...That's thing's huge!!
Shino - The leader of the pack!!?
I never knew there was one this big...
Electigra - GWROOO...
Luca - What's with that destructive power...?
Gatou - There's no way to win if we can't stop its movement.
Shino - [Stop its movement!?]
Use this, Luca-kun.
Luca - [A chunk of Phylomium!!]
Shino – Can you make a cage some distance away from us!? We're going to lock that beast inside!
Luca - Oh! Clever thinking!
Shino - Make it quick, stupid!
Luca - Shino!
Shino - Ugh...I'm fine! Do it now, Luca-kun!
Luca - Damn you!
I'll lock you all up!!
Gatou - Luca, it's about to discharge. Watch out!
Luca - Ugh.
Gatou - Dammit...it doesn't work...!?
Luca - The board's moving on its own!?
Gatou - [Isn’t this...]
[The electric current's flowing through Luca's unfinished cage...]
[Making a strong magnetic field around it...]
[It’s a solenoid!!]
[The magnetic force should be stronger inside the solenoid.]
Slam the board on that thing's head!
The only way to beat it, Luca!!
Luca - You dare try and shock us with such weird electricity.
Like hell we'll...
Gatou - That shape...
It's a giant bullet...!!
[When it reaches the opening of the solenoid, it'll]
Electigra - GYKEEH
Luca - We won!
Shino - Yippee!
Gatou – Look at how awesome we are!!
Shouldn't be too hard for us to clear the whole exam, now!
Luca - Isn't that obvious? I'm gonna be a Minea, after all.
Gatou - You won't make it without Shino's and my help though, stupid.
Shino - Yep, you got that right, Gatou-kun.
Gatou - [Shino-san, your clothes are about to tear apart!!]
Trenka - Ahaha, you're a lively bunch, there.
Aren't you happy over beating just one lightning beast?
Well, I guess this should calm the forest for a while.
I've never taken the exam before, but I do hope there's more, since honestly, this is quite a let down for me.
Gatou - Ju...Just who are you, exactly...?
** A fearless smile! Their rival has shown himself!? **
Trenka - Me? I'm Trenka...a solo examinee with no assistant.
Nice to meet you...
Chapter 8 / END
Next chapter, Trenka's arrival changes everything!? What will the second exam that's about to begin be!?
