The Failed Swordsman Who Became the Strongest After Spamming the 100 Million Years Button - Chapter 266

266. Country of Sakura, Cherin and Seven Holy Swords 
A few hours after the training began.
I finally adapted to Bacchus-san’s, mysterious to man, hellishly difficult to understand teaching method.
I put my sword in front of my navel and assumed Seigan no Kamae.
Quietly close my eyes, breathe and calm my mind.
And unleash the “diagonal slash” which I just learnt.
「Sakura Blossom One-Sword Style – Evening Sakura」
A sharp slash cut through the darkness of the night and ran across the sky.
(All right, I think that was satisfactory.)
As I looked back at Bacchus-san in a manner of seeking for his evaluation,
「Almost, but not quite. One more step forward. Evening Sakura goes like “Gui” and do it with “Zuba”!」
Bacchus gave me a hint to move “one more step forward.”
「I see. So you do it “Gui” like this… and then “Zuba”!」
I did as told and unleashed Evening Sakura again.
「Oh, that’s it! You can do it if you try!」
He smiled satisfactorily and patted me on the shoulder.
「Thank you very much.」
Bacchus-san’s way of teaching is certainly a little lacking, but…
If you listen carefully, you will be able to understand what he means.
Now I can clearly understand the “Gui” and “Zuba” he says.
(That’s right… I need to do “Gui” then “Zuba” for Evening Sakura.)
It will be quite difficult to find a more accurate expression.
「Hey, Rose. Why is Allen improving from Bacchus-san’s teaching method?」
「Maybe they, fellow inhumans, are communicating with each other in something other than words. We humans can’t possibly understand, and we don’t need to understand them.」
I felt that Ria and Rose were looking at me and talking about something, but it’s probably just my imagination.
Then I kept swinging my sword for another couple of hours.
「Well, it’s about time to take a break!」
Bacchus-san clapped and signaled a short break.
「Fuu, I’ve sweated quite a lot.」
「Grandfather’s training is quite hard after all.」
Ria and Rose wiped off the sweat with the towel they brought.
「I wonder if I have slightly mastered Sakura Blossom One-Sword Style…」
「Oh, no doubt! I feel like I’ve gotten stronger somehow!」
「I don’t think it’s something you can master in one day like that though. Lilim has always been a little too imaginative, though…」
The president and senpais rehydrated themselves from the water bottle they brought.

And as everyone was resting,
(All right, it’s finally time for some free training.)
I picked up my sword.
(I learned the godspeed Iai-slash, Lightning Sakura a while ago.)
In doing so, I firmly grasped the principle of sword drawing.
If I applied it to the seventh sword, Instant Flash, the speed would surely elevate further.
(The point to note is the angle of the sword drawing, the bend of the arm, and the snap of the wrist.)
And when I got ready to unleash Instant Flash,
「Kid, do you have a moment?」
Bacchus-san called out to me.
I took my hand off the hilt of the sword and headed towards him.
Bacchus-san was sitting on a stump, with a serious expression on his face for some reason.
「What is it, Bacchus-san?」
「No, it’s nothing important. There’s just one thing I’d like to request you.」
What could it possibly be?
「There is an incredibly strong spirit core slumbering in you… Isn’t that right?」
「Yes, there is. As far as I know, there is no swordsman stronger than that guy. He is a literal “monster”.」
He’s savage, violent, and an unreasonable guy, but his power is immensely overwhelming.
To be honest, I can’t even imagine Zeon ever losing.
「Hou, is that right? He’s that strong huh.」
Bacchus-san muttered with a grin, and laughed happily for some reason.
And the next moment,
「Naa, Allen. Why don’t you let me fight that monster?」
He uttered an unbelievable request.
