Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 45: I Also Do 2nd Job Advancement – 8

Its size was smaller than the trolls that Yu IlHan had hunted. Its height was around 2.5m? Moreover, its strangely thin body looked weak to the point that it might get blown away with a breath.
However, its real strength was nothing like that.

Its body hidden under the black hood had an enormous power capable of easily making even the Highland Troll Boss kneel, and the pitch black scythe that it was swinging around flew at Yu IlHan as if to cut apart his neck.
If the first strike was aimed at Yu IlHan, even he would be hard pressed to see through it. Of course, as it couldn’t see him, it had attacked Erta.

[It’s a mutation that hasn’t been recorded yet, and one that appeared after evolving by monsters eating each other! It’s fortunate that it’s not fully grown, but its behavior patterns are still unpredictable so be careful!]
“Got it.”

Yu IlHan answered extremely shortly and moved his body. Jokes disappeared from him, meaning that the situation was not that leisurely.

The strongest weapon he had, the pile bunker, had already been destroyed, and the strongest weapon after that was only the Deathgod’s Black Spear.
His armor had a special ability, but now that the possibility of a surprise attack had all but disappeared, it had no other advantages than its sturdy defensive power. Although not a short time had passed since Earth went through the Great Cataclysm, this was the greatest crisis that he had met so far.

{Record!}

That damn record! Someone might even think that it was the only word it knew. With its shout, Yu IlHan didn’t think to block the oncoming scythe and avoided.
As he had already seen the results of its terrifying attack, he knew very well. Yu IlHan could not win against it in strength. That didn’t change even if he activated Superhuman Strength.

However, if someone asked if Yu IlHan could not defeat it, he would laugh at that person. What Yu IlHan had trained for a millenim was his martial arts techniques, not his skills, levels, or strength.
This moment would become the moment where his true ability would be revealed instead.

{You’re quick. Give me that too!}
“Fuu.”

Yu IlHan didn’t hurry in attacking it. If it was a situation where he overwhelmed the other, then the best attack would be to suppress it in strength, but confronting a strong, sturdy, and moreover, unpredictable opponent, he had to see through his opponent first.

{Youuuuu!}
“Come at me. That’s it, come on.”

Yu Ilhan taunted it and moved his body again. Its body, and the area of its movement, the radius of its attacks, the power behind it, the probability of change – he looked through all of them.
Its scythe was swung around several times as if to reflect its madness, but it couldn’t catch Yu Ilhan. Yu IlHan did his best to see thorugh it with his eyes wide open.

At that moment, Erta shouted in shock.

[Yu IlHan, it’s magic!]
“Tch.”

How good would it be if it kept continuing as a physical fight? However, reality wasn’t that easy. Its fighting power included magic, which was still unknown to Yu IlHan!

[From below!]
Hup!”

While shouting, Yu IlHan kicked off the ground. However, those movements weren’t exaggerated, and of the kind where he could take it back at any time.
As he had expectd, immediately after he moved away from that place, a spike emitting a black aura shot up from the ground and branched through the air. At the same time, the main body of the monster also assaulted Yu IlHan.

“It’s good that its attack pattern is obvious.”

It is fortunate that its weapon mastery was very low compared to my estimations – thinking wholeheartedly, Yu IlHan stepped on the ground lightly in order to avoid the deathgod’s scythe.
Thanks to that, a black spike touched his armor, but fortunately, the high defensive power of the armor completely blocked the attack.

{Recooooooooord!}

The monster crazily roared while swinging the scythe all over the place. All of those attacks became blades of wind and assaulted Yu IlHan!
Every time the weapon was swung, Yu IlHan movd his body according to the trajectory that he had seen and ran forward. If he didn’t, he would have to allow an attack from the spikes behind him!

“Eat this first!”

Immediately after its scythe was swung diagonally to the right, Yu IlHan struck out his spear while running into it. To observe anymore, its attack was too sharp. so there was a need for him to limit its movements by attacking it.

There was a near 100 levels of difference between Yu IlHan and the deathgod. His spear strike, which originally should not have damaged it in the slightest, called for a miracle with his amazing techniques and the perfect weapon.
It reached and wounded the monster’s physical body which was hidden behind the black hood pefectly by ripping through it!

[Critical Hit!]

{Kuaak!}
“It’s a crit, but it’s only this much?”

Clicking his tongue, he moved his body. However, he did reach a small achievement, since the blades of wind stopped after it was attacked and stunned for a little.
Yu IlHan instantly moved backwards and reorganized himself. He swung the spear to shake off the black traces that clung to the end of his spear, and prepared to attack while sorting out his breath.

{Weak, you’re weak. You’re weak but strong. Give me your record!}
“I knew you’d say that.”

Spikes shot up from the ground, and its scythe didn’t end with just a swing but gave rise to blade like winds. Yu IlHan felt like he was playing a nightmare shooting game, which he had once played, but for real.

At those times, a tiny mistake led to his plane exploding, and now, if he misstepped, his body would be ripped apart.

“Take this attack!”
{Kuaaak!}

Concentrating to the extreme, like when he made the steel spear, Yu IlHan moved his body. He safely passed through the baptism of attacks, and attacked the deathgod once again, and after confirming that he inflicted some damage, he would retreat backwards.
He would ignore a few of the spikes that attacked his amor, avoided the blades of wind and the scythe itself somehow, and attacked.

A critical hit would allow him another chance to attack it due to its weakness being exposed, but if it didn’t he would retreat without regrets. All of his movements were repeated as if set up with the deathgod beforehand.

Little by little, but surely, he could see damage accumulating on the deathgod. Its hood became increasingly tattered, and its wounded physical body was spilling out black auras.
Unbelievably, Yu IlHan was seeing through all its attack patterns and trajectory.

[Amazing.]

Erta subconsciously muttered before covering her own mouth. It was because she was afraid that she might disturb Yu IlHan’s concentration.

Accumulating skills and using them well in real life were completely different. Aren’t university entrance exams the same? Some may bring out achievements more than usual, while some would earn a pathetic result due to nervousness.

Yu IlHan was neither. He solved exactly what he learned, and got what he exactly knew. The frustration of his own ability being underevaluated was unimaginable for him. To whom could he speak his frustration if he was improperly judged? He was a loner too!

As such, he would make it so that he wouldn’t have to speak about it at all. To not be stubborn saying that he couldn’t bring out all his ability due to nervousness, to be acknowledged with his real ability.
The current situation wasn’t at all different. He would die if he could not bring out all the techniques that he had accumulated, so Yu IlHan was moving around with his best.

      fixed…thx. Man, I must be blind…

      help? with editing? I do have an editor… but I didn’t even notify him that I translated this chapter before I posted it…

      1. firelight777

        Lol, that might be your problem right there XD
        Assuming your editor doesn’t mind, I don’t mind helping out to edit, though since I’m in university there’ll probably be a fair few times I don’t have enough time to do it due to needing to study. How would the process work (like the coming Monday since I have a midterm that day)? Like, would you send a google doc link or something?

      “After sending her off, Yu IlHan faced the deathgod. As the fact that the feeling on his cursed arm disappearing made him nervous, Yu IlHan strangely did not feel any fear.”

      Maybe there are already here and the girl just healed him ? Honestly this boss fight is only difficult because he doesn’t have a healer, the other guy isn’t needed xD

    After reading through this novel once and rereading, I really have a bone to pick. How could a 3rd class possibly threaten Erta, abandoned world or not?? Even if you take away her magic and mana, just her body as a higher existence is durable to the point an average 3rd class can’t break her skin.

    Even the future Yu Ilhan in 3rd class at the reaper’s level couldn’t have killed Erta, period. And the reaper’s weapon isn’t even that good, compared to what Ilhan can make. This ‘Erta in danger’ is total BS, period.

    …I guess Toika must have readjusted the power levels later on or something?
