Oh boy, looks like Kyo Ethnina kidnapped the remaining Cardinal Heroes where he used Itsuki Kawasumi, Ren Amaki, and Motoyasu Kitamura’s lifeforce as energy to protect the power crystal of the Spirit Tortoise.
First of all, how the fuck did Kyo kidnap them? Did he just overwhelm them with his powers or it appears that Itsuki, Ren, and Motoyasu are so inept in dealing with a hero from another world?
Regardless, Rishia Ivyred is horrified that Itsuki-sama is being tortured by Kyo Ethnina. But seriously, she should focus on helping Naofumi Iwatani and his party as they need to find a way to stop the Spirit Tortoise once again.
Meanwhile, looks like the Filolial Queen has arrived as Fitoria will take on the Spirit Tortoise.
Of course, kicking the tortoise’s head won’t do much as it’s invincible. Man, I’m hoping that Ost Hourai has a plan to destroy the monster once and for all.
Meanwhile, looks like Glass and her companions are here to take down Kyo Ethnina as they found his actions disgusting.
I mean, using souls siphoned from the Spirit Tortoises for his own gains is quite terrible!
Speaking of Kyo, he doesn’t give a shit as he’ll not only take out Naofumi, but also Glass as he creates a giant firebird.
By the way, you notice that Kyo Ethnina is struggling to use his chosen weapon. Something tells me that the book is rejecting him.
Anyway, here’s Naofumi Iwatani where he uses his shield to defend L’Arc Berg. Well then, time to beat the shit out of Kyo Ethnina!
Except that he has a protective barrier in which Raphtalia and Filo’s attacks are ineffective. This is battle is gonna drag a bit longer.
Speaking of Kyo Ethnina, he used gravity magic to pin down Glass and her allies, as well as Naofumi Iwatani’s party.
Oh and it gets even worse when Kyo kicks Naofumi to the face and gloats how the Shield Hero can’t do anything to stand up. Fuckin’ terrible!
Luckily, there’s Rishia Ivyred where she managed to resists Kyo’s gravity magic as she almost kill that son of a bitch with her trusty sword.
Speaking of Rishia, I bet that she finally learn how to use her ki effectively, and I have to give props to Elrasla Grilaroc for teaching her the Hengen Musou-style of martial arts.
Thanks to Rishia standing up against Kyo’s tyranny, everyone is free from his gravity magic as Ost Hourai told them that they need to cut the tortoise’s neck and destroy its heart at the same time.
Then again, Glass and her two companions will have a hard time destroying the heart since they wasted their energy destroying fake ones. You may thank Kyo for making their lives even more miserable.
Fortunately, Filo volunteered to help them out. Let’s hope that the Spirit Tortoise is killed for good!
But let’s return to Rishia Ivyred where she managed to rescue the Cardinal Heroes from Kyo Ethnina. Still, it’s pathetic that they lost to a book hero.
Oh yeah, Rishia points her sword at Kyo as she’s telling him to surrender or face the consequences. Honestly, I wish Rishia should kill him right away.
Now let’s go outside where Queen Mirelia commands her troops to cast a powerful magic to counter the Spirit Tortoise’s devastating beam attack, although it’s not enough to kill the monster.
Fortunately, this gives the opportunity for Fitoria to tackle the Spirit Tortoise’s neck until it leaves a gaping hole on it.
And thanks to the Filolial Queen, the tortoise will have a mouthful of divine magic. Now the only thing left to do is to destroy its heart.
Luckily, Glass managed to destroy the tortoise’s heart using her trusty fan just in time.
So with that, the Spirit Tortoise can finally put to rest… except that Naofumi needs to destroy the crystal that controls the monster.
That’s where Ost Hourai comes in where she aids the Shield Hero by lending her powers, although this would end her life once she give her last amount of energy to Naofumi Iwatani.
Anyways, Naofumi’s shield is transformed into the Spirit Tortoise Heart Shield where it’s created to destroy the monster permanently by firing a powerful beam. Even Kyo Ethnina is shocked that the Shield Hero acquired the tortoise’s power.
And with that, the Spirit Tortoise is finally slain where Naofumi destroyed Kyo’s crystal that controls the monster. Let’s hope that it’ll remain permanent unless some idiot revive the tortoise.
Unfortunately for Naofumi Iwatani and his allies, Kyo Ethnina doesn’t want to lose that easily as he decides to use the remaining souls that he gathered from the tortoise for one final attack…
And that’s retreating to his own world. Fuckin’ coward, Kyo should be humiliated at the hands of the Shield Hero!
As for Ost Hourai, she told Naofumi to stop Kyo as soon as possible, or he’ll claim more lives for his own enjoyment.
I must say that this will be the last time Ost Hourai aided the Shield Hero and his allies. Had she didn’t become a familiar to the Spirit Tortoise, Ost Hourai would be a valuable ally to Naofumi Iwatani.
With that said, tune in next time as Naofumi and his allies will be travelling to another fantasy world. This reminds me of Kamen Rider Decade where the protagonist goes to various worlds.
As for the Ren, Itsuki, and Motoyasu, I need an explanation on why they’re captured by Kyo. Honestly, they’re freakin’ useless till the end!
As for the Spirit Tortoise’s familiar, this will be the last time we’ll see Ost Hourai as she fades from existence. Anyways, I’ll see you again!
