MIYAGI

"I am no stranger. I am the Royal Heir to the very land your feet are resting upon. We will go to the palace so that you can receive a pardon for assaulting a member of the Government. If you refuse this offer of clemency then you will be branded a criminal to the whole country, the Happo Navy and the legendary Don Chinjao will descend upon you and your associates, arresting them and charging them with a capital offense. If you don't want this mercy, then I'm afraid that this year's festival will end with a public execution."
"Follow me now to the palace so we can sort this out. If you don't come then don't blame me for your misfortune."
What were they going to do? How were they going to turn the tables in such a situation? Miyagi searched for an answer as she stared down the road ahead of her. She needed to gauge the situation before again meeting with Nero.

“I know what you're thinking and you're right. I wanted to infiltrate them for intel but I can also just capture the prince for interrogation. Take the big guy for me please?”
As far as things went, Miyagi was morbidly intellectual, but only when she really didn't like you. How strange, she didn't actually want to say only cruel and cold-hearted and inhumane things. The fact that Miyagi had already worked out what she wanted to do exemplified her tendency towards quick decision-making. At any rate, it was easy to be reminded of how serious she was from how cool her attitude was.

"Yeah." Miyagi exchanged glances with Mia and began walking. The two of them start following the prince and his bodyguard, watching them through the corner of her eyes, she kept her walking pace more lax than usual. If she went at the same pace as she did normally, she was sure to reach the castle sooner than expected.

"You didn't have to go through the trouble of saying a lie like that." Miyagi's gaze was directed at the empty ground where only the cold wind blew past. She was probably calling Mia's excuse regarding the lie she told. Miyagi then combed through her hair blown by the cold wind with her hands as she slows down and took out her communication device to contact with Nero.

NERO - Fateful Alliance.

“As I said, if you go against me we'll have a problem but if we worked together then we could have a good time.”
Somehow, the whole scene was imaginable to a certain extent with those words. As his manner of speaking was filled with jokes, I thought a little about accepting the good parts of what he just said.

While thinking to reply him back, I heard a sound from my communication device. I basically didn't expect anyone to call me right now, so I thought it was strange.

"Nero! Tell me where you are right now!" With a frown, I held the communication device away from my ear. Once she had calmed down, I pressed it against my ear once again. Come to think of it even that frown was unexpectedly wasn't loud at all, is she's ok?

"Nero……Are you listening?"

"what's up?"

"Don't ask me what's up! I'm asking you where you are!"

I was a little unsure why she was asking me that, I informed her name of the ramen shop I had set foot into. I could tell that the Miyagi was being cautious. I mean, it was a place where so many different types of people mingled on days off. There was a possibility that you could get wrapped up in some incident or accident.

"You see, this is a jerk of prince forcing me to go with him in the royal castle"

Aren't you just being paranoid? I wanted to say at first, but I reconsidered because it was quite possible in her case. After all, she was no doubt eyecatching. Instead, I said, "Are you okay?!"

"Yes I am but things can get out of the hand," said Miyagi.

"I don't mean to brag, but I don't have confidence in my strength. Even if you get attacked by a stalker or prince bodyguard, the best I can do is get beaten up myself."

"You aren't bragging at all! And if you're a man, you ought to bravely fight all the same, even if you have to put your neck on the line!"

"I'm under the impression that you would make a better escort than me, Kyouko."

"Moron! I'm a delicate young lady, you know? I also need to be protected." I felt her chuckle. I shrugged exaggeratedly and took a look at the face of the Jimmy. In all honesty, I was much more worried about prince and Bodyguard than Kyouko, they're gonna regret forever trying to pick on someone like her.

I looked up at the night sky in order to suppress my boiling emotions.

"You're not fair."

"What do you mean?"

"What are you scheming?"

"That's not nice, you know? As a girl I am very frightened by these people, you know?"

"Fine, fine, I've got it already! Where are you right now?" I groaned and First of all, I had to confirm that where Kyouko actually is. I figured I could just knock and raised my hand accordingly.

"Hmm... I am not sure what's the name of this place but there is a flower shop here"

"Couldn't you be more specific?" There are like twenty flower shops in this town! I tried to convey this implied message within my question, but it seemed like she totally didn't get it.

A small silence ensued, and then Miyagi started to speak in a voice that sounded as if recalling a blissful moment from her past. "It has the large banner of flowers of Sylleblossom print on it"

At that moment I felt like it wasn't the first time I have heard the name of that flower. I took a single breath and looked up, through the dark sky. "Hey don't get yourself involved in any fight until I am there... there are royal guards everywhere!"

"Ah, yeah!" And with that, the call ended. All that was left was a robotic beeping noise.

At a time like this, unnecessary thoughts like that were floating into my mind. The only dangerous elements to me at present, getting into a fight with the royal family wasn't a good sign, I had this feeling that something had been set in motion. This is also probably goodbye to my peaceful time here. As for why... I don't know. I took my communication device in my pocket and turned to Jimmy. "What was your deal again?"

~ Kano Adventures Part 5: Akuma and Intel Gathering ~​

Akuma and Link would make their own way ever so slowly creating a path through the crowd of people. It didn't take that long due to gaps as the crowd was so present on the other side as the bullies attack had people walking around that side of the road. Even the stalls that were placed around began to push their stalls away from the ruckus. The road brick pavement on the other side was a little uneven, even the tiling on the buildings around were more traditional and old as cracks could be seen.

As they reached the other side the duo nodded and made a split as Akuma planned to make a beeline around and encounter them, whereas Link made his way to collect info as why no one helped those being oppressed by the bullies
. I need to know, why didn't anyone intervene. Though judging from Akuma's reaction those werent ordinary people. "Ahhh excuse me" Link smiled asking a sales merchant about who those bullies were. The man was shook, sweating staring back at Link as he gulped hesitantly looking downwards cowering. That man, that man Link would hear from the merchant ... "!"

Link could tell that man was no joke as the sale merchant head in hands began to tear up scared for his life. One could easily tell that those bullies were no joke and have been doing this for a long time to get an older man to cry. Hmmm, Akuma be careful.

Purru Purrru Purrru, Link's den den began to call and vibrate. Link reached down to his pocket grabbing his den den answering, gacha. "
What is it?" Link answered. Link could do nothing but listen on in that there's a ship spotted from the crew folk back on the ship at the docks "! ... A marine turned pirate huh? ... Frayz". This could be tricky, wasn't he the pirate that was a marine that rebelled at Punk Hazard?. I could swear i saw a report on that man. "You guys be careful, and thanks for the info .... " just before he could end the call another leak of information was also shared of a bounty hunter. Link tightened his grip "Thanks" as he ended the call, placing the den den back into his pocket. He was nervous as it wasn't just the Unwritten Pirates but a Bounty Hunter too. "Why are they here?" he would look whilst his eyes frantically looks left and right trying to think of alternatives.

Akuma meanwhile, made his beeline making his way around monitoring the conversation between the bullies and someone unknown. But he could no longer keep himself restrained as his blood flow increased pumping blood to his head quicker, raising his levels of annoyance.

He would then make himself known, his vein bulging pumping blood growling
. "You boy! ... I need to teach you a lesson" pointing at the bully prince @Fire Tiger making a quick glimpse at the women @Oreki "Thank you Girl, you have my respect". At the time he didn't notice another, meanwhile Link would be darting his way following him. Akuma i hope you haven't raised your finger at those yet. But then again, doing so might be fun and can't have you hog all the fun.

__________________________________________________
JIMMY - COMMON FOES

“Looks like we're popular today.”


Jimmy muses to himself sarcastically under his breath when, yet again, the sound of a transponder snail disturbs their conversation. This time however, it is Nero's own Den Den Mushi that rings before the sound is silenced as the bounty hunter answers.

The pirate captain tries not to invade the privacy of his attempted recruit too much and simply returns to his meal while waiting for him to finish off with his business. Even still, there was one particular thing said that immediately stood out like a sore thumb to Jimmy and his tail slightly twitches when he hears the words, he felt a little guilty listening in but knew he would be remiss if he was to ignore something that possibly concerned a member of his crew. He continues with his ramen while doing so until Nero wraps up the call and once again turns to him, asking him what his deal was but the one known as 'Mad Red', amongst other things, chooses to ignore this question for the time being and instead has a bit of a giggle.

“Heh-heh 'jerk of a prince', it's either just a coincidence or both our friends have gotten themselves into the same mess.”

He takes one last bite of his ramen before giving his face a quick wipe with a napkin sitting next to his bowl, he leaves enough Beri to cover his meal and then stands up. Before continuing his response, he reaches into his pocket and pulls something out but keeps it hidden within the palm of his hand.

“I can answer your last question on the way but I think we should back up our friends. I also really want to meet the guy who pissed Mia off enough to consider torturing.” he pauses to reveal a small piece of torn paper that he'd just pulled from his pocket to Nero. “And I know exactly where to find them.”

With that being said, the current objective was to head to where Miyagi was and a woman named Mia who happens to be a member of this guy crew. I don't think it’s interesting at all. I walked along with those idle thoughts going through my mind. It is indeed clichéd. From the corner of my eyes, I noticed Vivre card on Jimmy's hand to see where it was pointing. We went with the crowds to the festival grounds. Usually, shopping districts are typically just deserted and vaguely creepy at nighttime, today it was brilliantly colored by tens or hundreds of paper lanterns. Stands lined both sides of the street, and many people along with royal guards filled the area.

I slipped my body further through the crowd to reach the place where Miyagi was. My eyes were facing forward, not looking in any other direction. There was a lot of clamoring at the street and I was trying not to bump into anyone between the crowds.

"So annoying" Certainly, the only thing I could do right now was just to stay quiet and complain to myself that how much I loathe crowded areas. In that crowd, I finally spotted Miyagi and the others. It was really near the flower shop, somewhat further away from us, and then within the crowds who were trying to not get involved with the so-called prince, my eyes landed on the huge man(Akuma) who stepped in to pick a fight with that prince and his bodyguard following him behind a man with blond hairs(@Gintoki ).

Then, it looked as if the commotion in the street had slightly ballooned. I didn't need to say it, but from the perspective of an onlooker, this situation wasn't getting solved without any fight. To think I had hoped to have a normal festival here. This could only mean that hoping for normal hangouts completely useless for me. Now that I understood this, I walked in the direction of this commotion while looking at them and said, "Nice, getting the band back together, huh?"

"You boy! ... I need to teach you a lesson"
The prince didn't like festivals. They often involve too many commoners dancing, prancing, and making fools out of themselves. But this particular Festival was starting to become the worst of them all. Not only did two girls interrupt his playtime, but now some savage barbarian was coming to do the same? How unsightly was this?

With a twitch in his eye the Royal Heir made his command. "Tao Tei remove this garbage from the road. I have no more time for nuisances today." The Prince only spared a glance at the angry red head as he walked pass by with his chin up and his hands clasped behind his back.

As he walked the enormous bodyguard moved swiftly between Akuma and Prince Noodle. Still as silent as ever the large man opened his arms wide and like lightning he closed them with explosive force creating a Thunderclap of sound waves directed at the opposing martial artist.

The user brings their hands together creating a shockwave that travels through the air with the strength of a charging rhino. When someone is hit by it they will feel like they impacted an invisible wrecking ball that has the potential to pulverize their bones if not dealt with correctly.
(21 Mastery, 21 Strength) Destructive Potency Rank: C

This was a Hasshoken attack. The premier martial art of the Kano Kingdom and by extension the Happo Navy was a style that focused on shockwaves by the use of vibrations. Fighters of this style dealt devastating blows that could turn concrete into dust and split the land by the core. It was said that Don Chinjao the Great Grandmaster of the style could fissure an island in two just with his forehead, but it has been many years since anyone saw him do such a feat.

Even if the bodyguard couldn't accomplish half as much as the leader of the Happo Navy could, he still could use it to fractured bones and splintered organs. Because this style much like Fishman Karate had the potential to bypass external defenses to some extent and target the soft insides. Making it a particularly brutal form of fighting.

-----​
The air was cold, but the tension in the atmosphere made the scene quite heated instead. A crew of Happo Navy soldiers were dead quiet as they faced off against some strangers.

“Believe me, we're not unfamiliar with breaking things and letting loose. Considering you can't even throw a bottle straight, I'm guessing we're a lot better at it than you lot. I'm going to give you one last chance to stand down, don't make the wrong move.”
As the tension was reaching its peak an older soldier with an eyepatch and three followers entered between the two sides and tried to calm everything. "Woah there. No need to get this angry about nonsense. You guys stand down. Remember the situation that happened at Monkey Isle? We don't want a repeat of that, specially during the festivities."

Sighing the older soldier approached Floyd with a smile. "Sorry about that, these guys were seriously going to do something real stupid." As reached the other he offered his hand in a handshake. Yet he only held it out briefly before delivering his forehead in a headbutt instead.

With that as the signal the now fourteen soldiers charged at the pirates. With two Navy soldiers per pirate they were using numbers to outmatched their counterparts. This was the lesson they learned on the nearby Monkey Isle. At that time this battle loving battalion of the Happo Navy found themselves severely outnumbered by the locals and were beat within an inch of their lives. Since then they promised themselves to use numbers when ever possible.

It was clear that this guys had been in many brawls throughout the years. The elder with the eyepatch was delivering punches like a boxer and was joined by the one who threw the bottle, who was now wielding a chair against Floyd. Against Tatsu were a pair of young twins, each of them were holding curved knives they pulled from their boots and used them to slash at her. On Digger was a short guy who was throwing stones with a sling and a tall crosseyed fellow who was drunkenly shooting a pistol all over the place. The guys on the siblings were all using combinations of bare fists, clubs, staves, and pipes as if they were swords.

~ Kano Adventures Part 6: Clash of Thunderclaps ~

Link who mused to himself, "Hey Akuma, can you wrap this up before we get some noisy buggers flocking." Link leaned against the wall of a building with his arms crossed, noting the debacle would soon catch attention from those who were celebrating the festival. Akuma hearing this would grin knowing Link gave him the all clear.

"Tao Tei remove this garbage from the road. I have no more time for nuisances today." The Prince only spared a glance at the angry red head as he walked pass by with his chin up and his hands clasped behind his back.
Garbage? just the sheer arrogance of the prince fueled Akuma, "Boy, i guess your stupid father didn't teach you any manners."

As he walked the enormous bodyguard moved swiftly between Akuma and Prince Noodle. Still as silent as ever the large man opened his arms wide and like lightning he closed them with explosive force creating a Thunderclap of sound waves directed at the opposing martial artist.

Akuma noted the strange man walk right in front of the arrogant brat, thus his right eyebrow raised a little in confusion. "I have no business with you move aside boy." Akuma observed noting that the man was performing a similar technique to himself so Akuma followed suit by doing the same technique. "Let me show a real thunderclap, boy!"

Akuma extended his arms wide, then exhaling with his chest puffed out as he then whipped both hands with mighty force.

There's no coming back now as Link muses. "You woman there" pointing at Miyagi @Oreki "Block that guys escape route as this will be over quick." to block the prince escaping, Link simply believed it will be over and he wouldn't even have to raise his finger.

Though not that far away was another that would catch his attention arriving to where he is, the appearance was striking from the newspaper. Link took a brief glance back en route to Orange Town, it was the exact description was one who was before him, the Bounty Hunter Nero. Hmmm ....

What were they going to do? How were they going to turn the tables in such a situation? Miyagi searched for an answer as she stared down the road ahead of her. She needed to gauge the situation before again meeting with Nero.

She was probably calling Mia's excuse regarding the lie she told. Miyagi then combed through her hair blown by the cold wind with her hands as she slows down and took out her communication device to contact with Nero.
MIA AND JIMMY - GATHERING
After calling her captain and getting the permission she was hoping for, Mia had noticed that the other young woman noticed decided to join her and spoke her thoughts regarding their current deception. Believing she can be trusted, Mia begins to respond to her honestly.

“It's not the first time I've used these tactics and it worked, did it not? We got their attention away from the people who are powerless and now when we're somewhere secluded we can teach these guys a lesson. Besides thi..." she cuts herself short however when she sees her pull out a Den Den Mushi and begin to make a call.

Nero. The name sounded somewhat familiar to Mia but she hadn't the time to think of where from because by the time Miyagi had finished her call me, a new player had entered the mix.
Akuma meanwhile, made his beeline making his way around monitoring the conversation between the bullies and someone unknown. But he could no longer keep himself restrained as his blood flow increased pumping blood to his head quicker, raising his levels of annoyance.

He would then make himself known, his vein bulging pumping blood growling
. "You boy! ... I need to teach you a lesson" pointing at the bully prince @Fire Tiger making a quick glimpse at the women @Oreki "Thank you Girl, you have my respect". At the time he didn't notice another, meanwhile Link would be darting his way following him. Akuma i hope you haven't raised your finger at those yet. But then again, doing so might be fun and can't have you hog all the fun.
Mia was surprised by the turn of events but soon realised she could take advantage of the situation, she didn't even know that her own captain was right around the corner.

Now that I understood this, I walked in the direction of this commotion while looking at them and said, "Nice, getting the band back together, huh?"
He and Nero had quickly made their way to the scene by following Mia's vivre card, it was a mostly quiet walk but Jimmy managed to get his answer to Nero's earlier question in as they began. He explains his vendetta against the World Government, which includes the death of his brother and his own brainwashing, before concluding with how he has no chance of standing against them with his current forces

“...you see if I have Kano's crown then it would be much easier to form the legion I truly desire. Heh-heh-heh!”

After this, Nero begins moving at a much faster pace almost, ducking and weaving through the large crowds of people who have come to enjoy the festival. Jimmy speculates whether the bounty hunter just had a competitive personality subconsciously, taking note of it as side of him that the pirate captain could appeal to in the future.

But soon after they were there and they start to move towards where Mia and Miyagi are standing and Nero makes a fitting remark about bands being back together.

However Jimmy was more interested in what was going on in front of him.
The prince didn't like festivals. They often involve too many commoners dancing, prancing, and making fools out of themselves. But this particular Festival was starting to become the worst of them all. Not only did two girls interrupt his playtime, but now some savage barbarian was coming to do the same? How unsightly was this?

As he walked the enormous bodyguard moved swiftly between Akuma and Prince Noodle. Still as silent as ever the large man opened his arms wide and like lightning he closed them with explosive force creating a Thunderclap of sound waves directed at the opposing martial artist.

The user brings their hands together creating a shockwave that travels through the air with the strength of a charging rhino. When someone is hit by it they will feel like they impacted an invisible wrecking ball that has the potential to pulverize their bones if not dealt with correctly.

Fighters of this style dealt devastating blows that could turn concrete into dust and split the land by the core. It was said that Don Chinjao the Great Grandmaster of the style could fissure an island in two just with his forehead, but it has been many years since anyone saw him do such a feat.

Even if the bodyguard couldn't accomplish half as much as the leader of the Happo Navy could, he still could use it to fractured bones and splintered organs. Because this style much like Fishman Karate had the potential to bypass external defenses to some extent and target the soft insides. Making it a particularly brutal form of fighting.
~ Kano Adventures Part 5: Clash of Thunderclaps ~


Link who mused to himself, "Hey Akuma, can you wrap this up before we get some noisy buggers flocking." Link leaned against the wall of a building with his arms crossed, noting the debacle would soon catch attention from those who were celebrating the festival. Akuma hearing this would grin knowing Link gave him the all clear.



Garbage?
just the sheer arrogance of the prince fueled Akuma, "Boy, i guess your stupid father didn't teach you any manners."



Akuma noted the strange man walk right in front of the arrogant brat, thus his right eyebrow raised a little in confusion
. "I have no business with you move aside boy." Akuma observed noting that the man was performing a similar technique to himself so Akuma followed suit by doing the same technique. "Let me show a real thunderclap, boy!"

Akuma extended his arms wide, then exhaling with his chest puffed out as he then whipped both hands with mighty force.

Thunderclap: A term used to refer to a large shock wave created by a character with sufficient, superhuman strength violently clapping their hands together.

There's no coming back now as Link muses. "You woman there" pointing at Miyagi @Oreki "Block that guys escape route as this will be over quick." to block the prince escaping, Link simply believed it will be over and he wouldn't even have to raise his finger.

Though not that far away was another that would catch his attention arriving to where he is, the appearance was striking from the newspaper. Link took a brief glance back en route to Orange Town, it was the exact description was one who was before him, the Bounty Hunter Nero. Hmmm ....

@Frayz @Fire Tiger @Oreki
The fighting had Jimmy excited but he wasn't going to interrupt in case he insults the newcomers as he had a feeling he knew who the were. He turns to Nero to test his earlier theory.

“Want to bet on who will win this? Bodyguard or the other guy? I choose the other guy, I think he's one of the Silver Hair Pirates my brother said were here.”

NERO AND MIYAGI

With a twitch in his eye the Royal Heir made his command. "Tao Tei remove this garbage from the road. I have no more time for nuisances today." The Prince only spared a glance at the angry red head as he walked pass by with his chin up and his hands clasped behind his back.

As he walked the enormous bodyguard moved swiftly between Akuma and Prince Noodle. Still as silent as ever the large man opened his arms wide and like lightning he closed them with explosive force creating a Thunderclap of sound waves directed at the opposing martial artist.
Akuma noted the strange man walk right in front of the arrogant brat, thus his right eyebrow raised a little in confusion. "I have no business with you move aside boy." Akuma observed noting that the man was performing a similar technique to himself so Akuma followed suit by doing the same technique. "Let me show a real thunderclap, boy!"

Akuma extended his arms wide, then exhaling with his chest puffed out as he then whipped both hands with mighty force.
"That escalated quickly" Miyagi gave a smile as she said this. Couldn't help she let out a little a laugh as she pointed her face downwards, trying to pull herself together, and then finally looking back at Mia. When she smiled, two charming little lines formed beside her lips.

She heard quick footsteps approaching her from behind. Right before her eyes was an unfamiliar blond guy. The blond gazed up at her and said:
There's no coming back now as Link muses. "You woman there" pointing at Miyagi @Oreki "Block that guys escape route as this will be over quick." to block the prince escaping, Link simply believed it will be over and he wouldn't even have to raise his finger.
It was the calm voice of a male. She thought it was strange. First was the fact that he called out to her. The second was how he told her to do something, but she nodded anyway. As she had guessed, it would be pointless to say anything here.

When she let her gaze wander about with half-open eyes, she spotted Nero standing with a red hair guy. As she gazed at him, Nero’s face was a bit strained. Her lips quivered as if a ripple had run through them, and one side of her mouth rose. Miyagi remembered this expression well, the expression that Nero makes to her face when she voices some sarcastic remark.

"Of course," Miyagi said to herself. She thought about something. The smile gradually come to her face. "He probably was expecting some peaceful time here"

The fighting had Jimmy excited but he wasn't going to interrupt in case he insults the newcomers as he had a feeling he knew who the were. He turns to Nero to test his earlier theory.

“Want to bet on who will win this? Bodyguard or the other guy? I choose the other guy, I think he's one of the Silver Hair Pirates my brother said were here.”
Nero sighed with the trace of a bitter smile. The outcome of this fight was all too easy to see. He shrugged his shoulders, "Huh? It's impossible to win for a bodyguard."

He stopped momentarily, looking at the fight, and gazed into the distance. When he spoke again, it was practically an explanation "It will be weird if bodyguard could win when dueling with someone who's obviously stronger than him. The words are merely 'Doomed to failure' won't even have a chance to win in one in a million."

After saying this Nero started to walk towards Miyagi. For an instant, Nero smiled with wistful longing and the expression turned to a smirk just as quickly he turned to Jimmy again and said ."Hey, Jimmy, change of plans. I bet this bodyguard will be down by three strong hits of Silver Hair guy. Take this bet instead."

There was nothing particularly interesting to relate to this bet. This bet was simply the setting for Nero's latest twisted interest. So contrary to Nero's pleasant features, the man had a downright eerie atmosphere to him. The things he said put him at odds with society, but he was often frightfully insightful. That strange sense of being unmoored from the rest of the world must have been inspiring to those who wanted an escape from reality. So oddly enough, the man named Nero found himself surrounded by a variety of people.

A swift wind brushed by the prince in red as the bodyguard was blown back by the imitating, yet stronger attack. The big royal guardian smashed into a merchant stand that was filled with finely decorated porcelain pottery. The white vases, jars, and plates crumbled under the weight of the man as he was buried by the impact. Rivulets of blood could be seen dripping from his forehead as he stared up into the sky from his vulnerable position. It was unknown what the prince's bodyguard and enforcer was thinking as he briefly layed there dazed. But it wasn't long before an annoyed voice woke him from his stupor.

"You bumbling idiot! Get up! How many times have I told you to never go easy on anyone. A lion always uses its full strength when hunting a rabbit and so should you when facing strangers. Must I do everything myself?"

The Prince was using his rage to mask his nervousness. Today was turning outrageous like never before. He had never felt opposition like this on his excursions. On occasion a misguided peasant would stand up for one reason or another, but there's never been this many strong fighters opposing him. Was it a mistake to come out during the festival? No, the Prince had never doubted himself, so why would he start now. Still he would need to rely on stronger methods than just his guard.

As a Royal, Noodle had various trump cards to use in case of emergencies and as such he pulled two of them out. Hidden within his long sleeves he pulled out a forearm long golden rod shaped like a majestic dragon. With one hand he pointed the intricately designed dragon at the sky and with the other hand he pulled on its tail. As he did that a mechanism made the dragon open its mouth and shoot out an object into the air. A bright red flare like firework flew until it became the highest object in the sky until it blew up with deafening bang. It was so loud and bright that even at this hour of the day it could be seen from anywhere on the island. After that he threw away the pure gold rod that no longer served a purpose and grabbed a glass vial that contained yellowish green liquid.

As that happened a man rose from the ground like a mummy from a sarcophagus. As he stood up Tao Tei could see the signal fire high in the sky and the citizens running away from the area. Even though there's been many fireworks during the celebration, all Kano natives recognized the difference in this one. This wasn't a party tool, this was a summoning sign. A sign that summoned the full force of the Happo Navy.

In his younger days Tao Tei himself was a promising member of the Happo Navy until he was recruited into the royal guard. So he had clear knowledge on how chaotic things had just become. Looking back at the stranger the bloodied man got back to work without commenting on the matter. The silent enforcer could now see that his opponent was somewhat stronger than him, but that didn't deter him.

With a steely face the big man jumped in place three times like a boxer getting ready for a match he charged at the red head once more. Hasshoken was style that worked on the basis of vibrations and shockwaves and this technique of the guard was no different. When he jumped vibrations rippled through his muscular body. His muscles were like batteries that captured and circulated those tremors. As he charged the frequency of his strong steps resonated with the shockwave cruising through his body amplifying them exponentially. As he neared the enemy his visage became blurry as his whole being reverberated at a strange rythm. Leaving behind a trail of circular footprints made from the excessive shockwaves that escaped his steps, the royal guard dashed to tackle the enemy.

The user uses their physique to momentarily trapped explosive shockwaves inside their body. By moving in a coordinated fashion to the amplitude of the shockwaves, they strengthened these waves until they make contact with another body and harshly transfer them into that body. Thus resulting in a damaging tackle that threatens the enemy on the outside and a hidden wave that consumes them on the inside. (41 Mastery, 41 Strength) Destructive Potency Rank: B

Just as Tao Tei charged at Akuma, a shadow fell on the battlefield. An escaping woman let out a gasp as she saw a large elderly man with a large pointy cone shaped forehead falling into the marketplace. Like a meteor this bearded and mustached fellow fell face first into the ground. This guy who was even larger than Tao Tei stood there upside down with his arms crossed and and a pulsing vain on his forehead by a tattoo of the number 12.

Still standing on his head, Don Chinjao looked around at all the strong individuals before looking back at the prince and asking. "Which of you punks is making a mess of my country?"

Just as Link would ask the young woman who obediently obliged in performing the task of blocking the prince's escape route. As he would do so the presence of two caught his attention, one being the Bounty Hunter and the other a Ex-Rear Admiral. Whats a former Marine doing here? but more importantly why is a Bounty Hunter so friendly with him. Aren't they like on the same side but aren't ex-marines hunted as well?. Link simply wondered gazing at the two that would arrive to the battle scene. As Link wondered he could feel a breeze started by brushing then blowing all coming from behind as if pushing him forward following the clash of attacks."Tchhhhh!" I told this fool to end things in one go, this is definitely gonna catch unwanted attention. Akuma you bastard!, finish him already.

Arrogant little punk as Akuma tried to goad him by luring him to attack as it was something he wanted using his index finger waving it at him to have a go. Come on brat come and get these hands.

The silent enforcer could now see that his opponent was somewhat stronger than him, but that didn't deter him.
Akuma simply stared as he tried to goad him but he had another trick up his sleeve as all he could do was grin as Link looked on annoyed at he was allowed to do that.

Link simply just looked on knowing the woman didn't respond quick enough and was distracted knowing he even allowed it to happen was disgusted with himself with a grunt but was curious at the same time. Fuck damn it i should have done that but wonder who that alerted.

Just as Tao Tei charged at Akuma, a shadow fell on the battlefield. An escaping woman let out a gasp as she saw a large elderly man with a large pointy cone shaped forehead falling into the marketplace. Like a meteor this bearded and mustached fellow fell face first into the ground. This guy who was even larger than Tao Tei stood there upside down with his arms crossed and and a pulsing vain on his forehead by a tattoo of the number 12.

Still standing on his head, Don Chinjao looked around at all the strong individuals before looking back at the prince and asking. "Which of you punks is making a mess of my country?"
"Finally a big fish has arrived" Link salivated at the chance of unleashing, having enough of small fries to deal with. Link without hesitation roared at Akuma "Akuma kill that big guy and that other guy now" as he smirked pointed at the direction of Tao Tei and the Prince. Link knew that the big guy with the prince not only offended Akuma, but the woman who was casually speaking with the Bounty Hunter and another being the Ex-Rear Admiral. Them two have pissed them off, so why not use it to our advantage grinning.

Akuma closed his eyes, tightening his fist tightly as they slowly imbued in hardening breathing slowly concentrating which was enough for everyone to notice. It was as if he was the centre of a cyclone as wind gushed out in all directions as if standing on the beach as the waves would come in was as if the wind blew past all around. Akuma then cupped his hand in the direction of the Prince and his body guard then slowly bringing it to his right pelvis. Just as he would do that the ground beneath began to shake at the might of this attack. Link would simply grin "Finally he's gonna end this"

Akuma then pucked out his chest and roared as in the same motion he darted himself in the direction of the prince and the bodyguard thrusted his cupped hands forward
"Gohaduken!".
Gohaduken ("Great Surge Fist"):
This is executed when Akuma has formed cupped hands to his side, as the user focuses their energy into and through the palms concentrating it into a single point (between their cupped hands). The palms/hand are then thrusted outwards towards the target channeling their force through their palms into the opponent with devastating force. Gives +10 in Strength with 2 turn cool down.
(81 Mastery, 81 Strength) - DPR S

+2 with Hardening

DPR = 101-119: 7. Town Level

Like this:

As the incident heated with the arrival of one of the leaders, two were looking on as if sent to observe should assistance be required.
2 NPC's will join in later just hinted of them being around. Their Font Key will begin from the next post.

PART 8:
- MARKET INSANITY
Nero sighed with the trace of a bitter smile. The outcome of this fight was all too easy to see. He shrugged his shoulders, "Huh? It's impossible to win for a bodyguard."

He stopped momentarily, looking at the fight, and gazed into the distance. When he spoke again, it was practically an explanation "It will be weird if bodyguard could win when dueling with someone who's obviously stronger than him. The words are merely 'Doomed to failure' won't even have a chance to win in one in a million."

For an instant, Nero smiled with wistful longing and the expression turned to a smirk just as quickly he turned to Jimmy again and said ."Hey, Jimmy, change of plans. I bet this bodyguard will be down by three strong hits of Silver Hair guy. Take this bet instead."
‘Heh, well he's not stupid but it still seemed to work like I hoped.’

Jimmy thought as he was listening to Nero's counter bet, the situation was already starting to look dire for the guard as he was buried in a merchant stand but the pirate had no interest in actually winning the bet anyway.

“Very well, I can accept this. If he can survive three strong hits then you owe me 1 Million Beri, if not then I'll owe you three quarters of the price since the odds are probably in your favour.”

As they continue watching, the two are interrupted by Mia who had rejoined with her captain upon noticing him.

“These new guys, why didn't your drunken idiot of a brother warn us about them?”

“These new guys are the Silver Hair Pirates and that's what he was trying to do when you gave him a hard time, you need to lay off..... shit!”
Hidden within his long sleeves he pulled out a forearm long golden rod shaped like a majestic dragon. With one hand he pointed the intricately designed dragon at the sky and with the other hand he pulled on its tail. As he did that a mechanism made the dragon open its mouth and shoot out an object into the air. A bright red flare like firework flew until it became the highest object in the sky until it blew up with deafening bang. It was so loud and bright that even at this hour of the day it could be seen from anywhere on the island. After that he threw away the pure gold rod that no longer served a purpose and grabbed a glass vial that contained yellowish green liquid.
By the time Jimmy even realised the Prince had a flare it was too late, the thing had already been fired into the sky. He knew what it had meant, he had once used similar tactics when his Marine branch had attempted to capture the Arlong Pirates. He was too busy screwing around and trying to recruit Nero that now he has slipped, now was the time for him to get serious. He turns to Mia and Nero while drawing both of his blades, Peace Keeper and Doom Bringer, from their sheaths attached to his back over the red and black tang suit he currently wears.

“Be ready, that flare will only bring more of their forces here. Mia I want you to try contacting Kane, he believes he's found potential allies but they've already begun fighting the Happo Navy. Tell him to follow that flare if you can get in contact with him. Nero, feel free to leave if you don't want to get involved but it looks like your friend is already eager to joi....”
Just as Tao Tei charged at Akuma, a shadow fell on the battlefield. An escaping woman let out a gasp as she saw a large elderly man with a large pointy cone shaped forehead falling into the marketplace. Like a meteor this bearded and mustached fellow fell face first into the ground. This guy who was even larger than Tao Tei stood there upside down with his arms crossed and and a pulsing vain on his forehead by a tattoo of the number 12.

Still standing on his head, Don Chinjao looked around at all the strong individuals before looking back at the prince and asking. "Which of you punks is making a mess of my country?"
Before the Captain of the Unwritten could even finish his final sentence, the first responder to the Prince's flare had arrived almost simultaneously to his bodyguard once again aiming to the brute from the Silver Hair Pirates. This responder was an older man but not frail by any means, he had launched himself like a cannon ball from the sky straight into the centre of the markets. Landing on his pointed head, he makes a simple remark but still one Jimmy takes great offence to.

YOUR COUNTRY?! YOU OLD FART, THIS PLACE BELONGS TO THE UNWRITTEN PIRATES!!”


He shouts before running at the Happo Navy leader, he had heard tales about the abilities of him but now it was time to see them in person. If he can pay attention to the enemy's movements, he knew he could discover the secrets of Hasshoken to use for himself. With his swords already unsheathed, he runs at Don Chinjao and aims a basic vertical slash with each at the chest of his opponent.

This party's gettin' crazy! Thought Nero. Like all Jimmy's reasoning, the thing seemed simplicity itself when it was once explained. It looks like the bad feeling was slowly getting fulfilled, Nero gave a smile with a tinge of bitterness. Nero fights for the mere pleasure of fighting and is equally ready to take up either side so that it is no wonder that he has found this situation an amusement.

Nero shrugged his shoulders while looking at Chinjo and said. "You sure know how to throw a party! No food, no drinks, and the only the festival lights you just ruined."

Nero walked over to the Miyagi to find her eyes fastened upon him with the half-amused, half-questioning expression which she usually assumed when she felt Nero has something to tell. Once she had confirmed that people were beginning to gather and murmur at the scene behind her, she starts walking towards Nero. She knew why they were buzzing over the sight.

It was the sight of the Silver hair pirates engaging in their own action. Under cold winds, Miyagi was silent with thought as she looked at Nero. "Hm? Oh, Nero! What's going on?"

Miyagi's fair, slim fingers gripped tightly onto her sword, her knuckles turning white. Her gaze was clean and calm as she waited for Nero's reply
"I cannot say for sure, but if they didn't sumbit even after Jimmy defeats this big guy, we'll have to consider the worst-case scenario too."

"There're far too many people here......N-Nero, will all these people gonna be involved?"

Nero nodded. "I already had the idea something to take care of Happo Navy, but......for there to be this many people...... it's gonna be trouble."

As the two of them looked around suspiciously, Miyagi heaved a sigh.

Her small hands clenched into fists, as Nero was gazing at her figure, he said "Hey, smile a bit. A little more! Don't give those gloomy expressions as if you were lining up in a slave trading town!"

"You're the one to talk."
And then Miyagi put on a smile.

Nero shifted his gaze away from the Miyagi and looked at the prince. Jimmy goal had been the elimination of the nobles and Happo Navy. Although to be honest at this rate, things would end up becoming another Great Purge. Nero was having a dilemma when he arrived at this place. After facing his own internal arguments, Nero laughed in amusement looking at the prince and says,

"So you're the jerk of prince? I don't know. I mean, you're royal blood and all, but you seem more like a knuckle-scraping fart in the wind than anything else. No offense "

The first time they exchanged blows Tao Tei was sent back. The same didn't happen the second time. The bodyguard had good confidence in his technique. As he had been a rising star in the Happo Navy when he enlisted as a soldier. Outside of the Chinjao family he was one of the best experts of Hasshoken. He knew how powerful his blows could be. But this red headed stranger fought with his very own explosiveness. It almost seemed that enemy pulled power from midair using his own unique martial art. In a mere instant the enemy's exchange rose in potency and proficiency in a way that the guard could never expect. As such, he wasn't blown back. Not because of the lack of power, but for the opposite reason. Tao Tei's right shoulder and arm were completely eviscerated.

The wall of muscles that was Tao Tei had been breached. As the bodyguard fell face first into the ground. The Prince was aghast at the change in the battlefield. Although he did have some slight attachment to the walking brute, he was mostly worried about his own safety now that his shield was no longer functional. With trembling hands the Prince took the vial that he was holding tightly and threw it in front of all of these strangers.

The yellowish green liquid splashed on the dirt as the cristal container shattered. The liquid seemed to bubble and evaporate almost immediately as it met the outside air. A sickening smell somewhat reminiscent of moldy cheese and rotten eggs permeated the street. As a low trembling rumble could be heard on the ground. As the Prince turned and ran straight to the Palace. A swarming stampede of rats emerged from the gutters, alleys, and rooftops almost as to swallow the invaders whole.

Attracted by an alchemical potion of Kano, a berserk stampede of rats gnaw and bite in any living beings that they can reach.

A few feet away Don Chinjao looked at the fall of the guard with pitty in his eyes, before turning to look at the invaders. The rats ran around him as a indistinguishable pressure kept them at bay from the veteran soldier.
YOUR COUNTRY?! YOU OLD FART, THIS PLACE BELONGS TO THE UNWRITTEN PIRATES!!”
"Unwritten Pirates? Don't make me laugh. You're just a bunch of undisciplined punks that are just barely out of your diapers. When you brats where learning the word Pirate I was already fighting the likes of Roger and Garp. And now you snot nose children think you can take me on? Ha! Time to smack some sense into you. "

The old man's beard seemed to rise into the air as the pressure around him rose. The upside down elder flipped over to stand on his feet, when suddenly he seemed to fall forwards. Almost toppling over the large forehead of Don Chinjao impacted the ground as tremendous shockwave fissured the street apart. Like a giant wedge being planted a deep ravine appeared. As it was splitting apart the shockwave headed straight towards Jimmy with incredible destructive force.

Don Chinjao plants his stake like head into the ground causing a concentrated shockwave to travel through the earth and split everything in its path.

A deep chasm now divided the market. Splitting the stage between the different combatants. Almost on que on both sides two groups arrived. On one side the next leader of the Happo army Sai arrived with 500 of his best men. On the other Boo got there, but he seemed to be missing a few soldiers. He was in the process of wrangling the rowdy bunch when the flare hit. With no time to get everyone together, he had to make do with 400.

The Happo brothers were dumbfounded at the scene of their Grandfather fighting an unknown foe while surrounded by a stampede of rats. Still the prepared their weapons as they ordered the men to charge.

With swords and guns in hand the soldiers assault. In an attempt to encircle the enemies.

Akuma right after fell to his knees with him feeling a sharp chill down his back stranding into his arms, like his blood vessels began to throb in pain. He was panting as he slammed his hand against the floor with another holding his chest where his heart would be. "Damn i used too much energy" he would think staring at the floor, taking in slow breaths. So he couldn't see the damage that he caused before him as neither did Link pay attention as the duo were confident enough he would be no longer anymore.

Link seeing this would scoff "He's not as strong as he used to be" before turning his attention to the prince, he walked beside then slightly in front of Akuma as he would thank him then reprimand him for being weak. "Good job, but did you drop a penny? If not get that fucking fat ass of yours up or your surplus requirements. I'll slice your head off for showing weakness."

The wall of muscles that was Tao Tei had been breached. As the bodyguard fell face first into the ground. The Prince was aghast at the change in the battlefield. Although he did have some slight attachment to the walking brute, he was mostly worried about his own safety now that his shield was no longer functional. With trembling hands the Prince took the vial that he was holding tightly and threw it in front of all of these strangers.

The yellowish green liquid splashed on the dirt as the cristal container shattered. The liquid seemed to bubble and evaporate almost immediately as it met the outside air. A sickening smell somewhat reminiscent of moldy cheese and rotten eggs permeated the street. As a low trembling rumble could be heard on the ground. As the Prince turned and ran straight to the Palace. A swarming stampede of rats emerged from the gutters, alleys, and rooftops almost as to swallow the invaders whole.
Links eyes would gleam in bright green as if he was in the zone, knowing when a person becomes desperate they'll do anything to cover the skin of their teeth. "Your desperate fool, when you become desperate you leave far too many openings". Link would then use his right leg to lunge himself forward accelerate himself forward (see difference in stats below).

Link would see the prince in slow motion but as he would see him turn around and run, he would rapidly clutch on his sheath taking his sword out. Link had his target pinpoint for where he would want him, as he would appear beside him then weave seeing his blind spot as he would blitz himself in that direction before delivering a frightening strike aimed at the prince's hands.

Not that far from the action was another who at the time was just looking on, he proceeded to make his way proving back up. "Just as the boss said before coming here he surely is far too reckless, guehahahahaha "

It was a young man with a blue bomber jacket, underneath a full black top and bottom with multiple grey pockets full with lead bullets, also with grey knee caps. With black curly hair though kept as a man bun though it did give the cascading effect of being kept like dreadlocks, with one of them hanging from the front of his face up to his eyebrow and another to the side.

The man would grab two guns out of its holsters "Asta la vista motherfuckers" as he set loose on the rats but not without coating his ammo with invisible haki.

Doing so she would use her observation by being aware that the enemies had begun to arrive and immediately launched two arrows at the oncoming army.

It was a beautiful, blond elf with blue eyes and pointed ears.

Akuma who at this time was reeling from the after effects from using a forbidden technique, but as he would he would hear these words. "Garp and Roger?" his eyes diluted in awe followed with a very slow gulp turning his head around seeing a huge man with a sharp head.

"He's a dangerous threat to us too, i need to get up come on." he would think with him staring at the floor slamming his fist into it with his veins bulging and his arms still reeling.

Panting heavily he slowed it down raising himself up then turning around getting into stance, though unaware the man didn't recognise him as another was already engaging him.

PART 9:
- THE BATTLE FOR KANO

Some say that time leaves a kind of humility but that doesn't really apply for this douchebag, I thought I was being a bit too cocky in my last statement but then he immediately starts bragging about his battles with the freakin Pirate King and the Hero of the Marines. Sure these titanic figures were the types that would demand respect from all back in their heydays but every era must come to an end at some stage. Gold Roger was executed decades ago which inspired a whole generation of scumbags that seek his treasure, his 'legendary' rival Whitebeard disappeared mysteriously without a trace with the Devil Fruit that Silver Hair Larsi ate being the only confirmation of his death and Garp, well I already consider Garp dead inside as now he only lives vicariously through the new recruits he trains. And that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes this particular generation who are way passed their prime.

My name is Jimmy Frayzah and watch as Chinjao, another of these titans, falls and I bring further closure to the era of the Pirate King. I know what my destiny has up its sleeve and 10, 20, 50 or even 100 years from now, the old era and any other will be afterthoughts compared to the era to come. The legion I envision will usher in an all-new age of legends and all it would take for its rise is a deal with both devils and angels alike, unwritten contracts yet signed in the blood of our enemies. Alliances forged through mutual glory and respect as we all share the power of the crown. Yeah I know what must be done, both in the immediate future and right here in Kano.

I will admit however that his skill in Hasshoken is more tremendous than I originally gave him credit for, evident by the way the ground splits and crumbles while his shockwave moves towards me after flipping and hitting his pointed head on the ground. An unusual technique but still no less dangerous, that kind of raw power could potentially kill me and I wouldn't have enough time to avoid it while running full speed towards him. It didn't need to hit me though, with enough strength of my own I could stop it, I needed to end this as quickly as possible and that's exactly what I'd go on to try doing.

“Heh. This is what I think about people like you who can't let go of the past, who can't accept that a new era has already begun.” I shout back in response to him while slowing down to almost a jog.

While coating both of my blades in Armament Haki so that its effects can be applied to my next techniques, I cross my left arm across my upper body so that Peace Keeper is held horizontally above the opposite shoulder before swinging it in a circular motion but then I thought why stop there? I would then quickly proceed to repeat the exact same actions but reversed so that Doom Bringer would begin its arc from the left shoulder. The results were spectacular, two spiralling projectiles coated in a black coloured Haki that move toward my opponent even quicker than his own attack. One to push through Chinjao's shockwave and another to immediately capitalise with some offense of my own. The first one is a success and in a quick clash, overwhelms the power of his technique before continuing towards him while the second follows suit. If the compressed air attacks hit their mark then it's possible that this fight is already over as it has the potential to shred a vital organ by tearing through to the insides of his torso.

-Slicing Spiral: This attack uses the air itself to slash the target from a distance. To initiate it, the user first holds one of his swords horizontally above the shoulder of his sword arm, and then performs a circular swing that launches the air compressed projectile spiraling towards the target. Requirements (DPR: Law Slicing Mastery, Strength):
S: 100, 100
A: 81, 81
B: 61, 61
C: 41, 41
D: 21, 21

1-20 Can only coat feet, hands and weapons in invisible haki.

61-80 Can coat full limbs and solid ranged weapons with hardening. Can coat intangible attacks, such as airslashes, with invisible haki.
81-99 Can coat full body with hardening. Can coat intangible attacks with, such as air slashes with hardening.
100 Can use an invisible armament blast to deflect haki-less attacks
120 Invisible haki boosts attack and defense by +2, while hardening boosts by +3.

Out of 10 turns, how many times you can use haki without exhausting it:
1-20: 2

41-60: 8
61-80: 12
81-99: 16
100: 20

Simply using invisible haki on hands, feet or weapons gives no extra deductions.

Coating entire body: 1 turn per turn.
Hardening: 1 turn per turn

First one clashes and is 3 tiers higher so if they connect it's a Wall/Tree Level attack immediately followed up by a Small Country Level.
The air was cold, but the tension in the atmosphere made the scene quite heated instead. A crew of Happo Navy soldiers were dead quiet as they faced off against some strangers.

As the tension was reaching its peak an older soldier with an eyepatch and three followers entered between the two sides and tried to calm everything. "Woah there. No need to get this angry about nonsense. You guys stand down. Remember the situation that happened at Monkey Isle? We don't want a repeat of that, specially during the festivities."

Sighing the older soldier approached Floyd with a smile. "Sorry about that, these guys were seriously going to do something real stupid." As reached the other he offered his hand in a handshake. Yet he only held it out briefly before delivering his forehead in a headbutt instead.

With that as the signal the now fourteen soldiers charged at the pirates. With two Navy soldiers per pirate they were using numbers to outmatched their counterparts. This was the lesson they learned on the nearby Monkey Isle. At that time this battle loving battalion of the Happo Navy found themselves severely outnumbered by the locals and were beat within an inch of their lives. Since then they promised themselves to use numbers when ever possible.

It was clear that this guys had been in many brawls throughout the years. The elder with the eyepatch was delivering punches like a boxer and was joined by the one who threw the bottle, who was now wielding a chair against Floyd. Against Tatsu were a pair of young twins, each of them were holding curved knives they pulled from their boots and used them to slash at her. On Digger was a short guy who was throwing stones with a sling and a tall crosseyed fellow who was drunkenly shooting a pistol all over the place. The guys on the siblings were all using combinations of bare fists, clubs, staves, and pipes as if they were swords.
About thirty minutes prior near the Tiger Gate, according to the information I would later receive, the animosity between the seven Suicide Pirates and the dozen or so fighters from the Happo Navy had reached its boiling point. One of them had suckered Floyd in for a headbutt from out of nowhere, under the false pretence of a handshake and apology for his comrade's actions, leaving the sniper rocked and with a bloody nose. Now this eyepatch wearing soldier was coming it hot, throwing coordinated combos of punches with a considerable level of skill. Unable to respond from the headbutt and simply trying to block the attacks with his arms, Floyd was in some serious trouble but none of his own crew could help him as they now had problems of their own, locked in various standoffs. The one who had earlier thrown the bottle was about to join in too, picking up a chair to swing around like a wrestling heel but what these two, or even Floyd himself, didn't know was that 'Deadshot' had a guardian angel watching over him in the form of my brother.

Kane, who had just gotten my permission to get involved, had positioned himself on the roof of the bar where the Suicide Pirates had just exited. He had pulled an arrow from his quiver and loaded it in his bow. Wanting to aim it at the one good eye of the boxing veteran but not wanting to risk shooting his old mentor, he aims the bow toward the head of the one with the chair instead. From what he could tell, he was the one who started this mess and maybe the others will back off for now if he's the first to die. He pulls the string back before releasing it and sending the arrow flying straight towards its target.


-Archery: 62
*Total quiver slots: 62
*C-Rank: 36
*B-Rank/3: 20
*A-Rank/10: 6
*Full range: 155m

He yells out as loud as he can so his voice could be heard by everyone involved, taking a cue from our false memories of being vigilantes.

“HAPPO NAVY, YOU HAVE FAILED THE PEOPLE OF KANO!”

The old man's beard seemed to rise into the air as the pressure around him rose. The upside down elder flipped over to stand on his feet, when suddenly he seemed to fall forwards. Almost toppling over the large forehead of Don Chinjao impacted the ground as tremendous shockwave fissured the street apart. Like a giant wedge being planted a deep ravine appeared. As it was splitting apart the shockwave headed straight towards Jimmy with incredible destructive force.

A deep chasm now divided the market. Splitting the stage between the different combatants. Almost on que on both sides two groups arrived. On one side the next leader of the Happo army Sai arrived with 500 of his best men. On the other Boo got there, but he seemed to be missing a few soldiers. He was in the process of wrangling the rowdy bunch when the flare hit. With no time to get everyone together, he had to make do with 400.

The Happo brothers were dumbfounded at the scene of their Grandfather fighting an unknown foe while surrounded by a stampede of rats. Still the prepared their weapons as they ordered the men to charge.
Rather than being shocked or worried, I was more dumbfounded. If this old man wasn't joking then he must be serious, and right now he was dead serious. If it were the absolutely strong ones then, I would be fine if they just fight us without a word but instead this old man bragging about his fights with dead legends. Regardless if that’s true or not, if it’s just a half-assed warning that can do nothing but use tricks and measure your enemy then boast about power won't do anything to me. Who am I kidding? "I guess I could understand" is the understatement of the century. It's obvious it'd look like that. Maybe I was being too naive up to this point.

Although it might've been too early for an amateur like me to take pride in my words, I wanted to tell that old fart that his days are over and he wasn't something I just can call challenge anymore but guess Jimmy did that part already for me.

From the distance, an army arrived, sweeping rolls of dust at its wake. I looked seriously at Miyagi, who was looking at the sight of conflict. She sure was a calm person, as she draws her sword from its sheath without looking the slightest bit shaken. How could she remain so calm? I was hardly feeling excited, yet my voice was slightly raised as I said,

"Look how many we're up against. Do you think it's a fair deal?" I realized I was making a bitter expression. Miyagi looked at me without any expression, or rather, she was smiling softly.

Part of me grew a little irritated wondering why I did end up in this situation. A gust of wind blew through the town. I saw the form of the wind as it flew through the banners, creating wave-like ripples, and due to that, more wind was blowing in. It's cold. Really cold.

Miyagi gave a gentle smile and slowly looked at the other side. "On the count of two... One, twoǃ" She stared calmly and intensely at that happo army, then she lifts her sword upward towards the right, above her head and does a vertical slash that created four air slash that heads directly towards the Happo Navy like claw cutting through the wind.
Claws-Purifying Wind: Miyagi lifts her sword upwards towards the right, above her head and does a vertical slash down creating four air slash of wind that slashes down on the enemy like a claw.

A: 71 Mastery, 71 Strength
+1 of Haki
Since we can't do anything else, we shouldn't delay pointlessly any more. I lowered my head quietly, I kicked hard my feet, and leaped towards the Happo army and as the street under my eyes. My speed was so fast that normal eyes couldn't see my movements. No matter how you think about it, it shouldn't be a physical feat ordinary people can perform. Although I did feel I was a bit careless, I wasn't too cautious with my recklessness. After all, this is the battle between pirates, the royal family and a bounty hunter that overrides ordinary rules.

Although a small smile passed across my face, the intent to kill was already within my heart. And thus, I was standing next to the Happo Navy leader(Sai) who was a thickly built man with shaggy brown hair and sideburns. While I'm no expert in fashion, at least I knew such a fashion was quite weird even for this generation.
If your reaction speed is two or more brackets below your opponent's movement/attack speed, you will barely be able to see a blur.
Nero speed is three brackets above Sai and No soldier can't react to Nero speed
"Down You Go." Saying this, I coated my sword with armament hardening, then swing my sword so fast that it doesn't appear to even leave its sheath. To create a distortion in space that engulfs the many members of the Happo Navy along with its leader(Sai) to slice them multiple times by the blade in very rapid succession. The ability is capable of hitting any enemies that are within the rather large distortion radius.

The ability is capable of hitting any enemies that are within the rather large distortion radius.

S: 91 strength, 91 mastery, AoE is mastery dependent
Haki: +1

As I executed my attack, I noticed a man who had long orange hair(Boo) put back in two ponytails, one in the back to the right and one over the left side of his face. The man, whom I think was leading the second army, had three double-bladed axes on him.

I took out my gun showed an unpleasant smirking smile before again shouldering my gun and pulling it in tight against my shoulder aiming at orange hair guy.

S Rank Bullet
+1 Haki
Boo Can't dodge due to Nero insane speed.

"Now it's right……" The trigger was pulled down and the reaction force of the launch made my left hand shake a little.

The gun I used is modified with a large-caliber revolver, but I couldn't see its original shape because it had two barrels. I refer to a double-tube design of a Delinga pistol. However, Delinga can only let bullets fire from their respective barrels. My modified gun can make two bullets fire at almost the same time. Just above the trigger there is marking of blue rose which allows me to switch off the second barrel gun firing in case I just want to fire one bullet just like I did now.

I named my gun "Blue Rose." I learned in a book that blue roses are not possible from a genetic point of view. And my gun is also a unique shape in the general sense, but there is no need to modify it in this way. It also has a molded wooden grip and an intricate blue rose design carved just above the trigger and the gun has blue illumination on the front sight.

Anyway, I don't think there is a need for me to be here anymore. While I wasn't particularly concerned with how the others were doing, I did take a glance at blonde hair guy, considering how that guy seems to want to fight these guys as much as Jimmy if not more. I could feel the breeze of the wind. I moved my eyes away from Blonde hair guy's gaze and looked at Jimmy, and said to Miyagi, "It seems like our job here is done, let's head out."

Miyagi nodded once slightly before taking a look of the entire ruined, then nodded once more deeply. And start walking with me.

"To be honest I'm quite surprised, Nero. Indeed I'm surprised by how you joined the fight."

"You're doubting my ability?"

I replied jokingly, yet for once Miyagi didn't smile when she answered, "You've been ignoring fights since I have met you. During our first meeting, you showed no interest in talking about your own skills. Why would someone like you who finds fighting your way through everything to be bothersome end up fighting with your own free will today? The answer is simple when you think about it. Today you were doing something you wanted to do. Isn't that right?"

I turned my head and wondered whether that was true. While what she said was mostly true, it's true that I ended up doing something out of the character, but why?

"Today's different."

Yeah, today's different.

"You could have chosen to run away saying you it's none of your business, and none of them would have said anything. Yet why did you still seek out to help him?"

Miyagi's question was quite right. Normally, I wouldn't have bothered to get involved in someone else matters. I guess I was extremely active today. Yes... that has to be it. Why did I act as I did today? I think I more or less understood the reason, and it had almost nothing to do with Jimmy or anyone else. However, understanding something myself was different from getting someone else to understand it as well.

Yet I felt like answering Miyagi, as well as organizing my thoughts for my own sake. So after a long silence, I gave my answer after choosing my words. "... I guess I'm just tired of having a grey-colored life."

I could sense Miyagi smiling even though I couldn't see it as she spoke at last.

"I think you're actually envious of those who actively changing there life for the better or worse."

I replied without thinking, "Maybe."

While they all looked fine with there own situation, it was different for me. Jimmy was the one who wanted to start the whole thing, to begin with, he was the one who decided to take over kano to take one step towards his ultimate goal, and blonde hair guy was merely wanted to enjoy the ride; they were all different from me. Jimmy was doing everything in his power to take revenge against the world government who had stolen his and his brother's childhood. I began to wonder if I would have a similar life by embracing reality like they do?

How should I put this... Oh well, whatever. Guess it's time to head out.

# New Year Festival was a week long so people could celebrate their new life. A way to reset all the bad deeds and emotions to start the new year the best way possible. The fireworks of Kano were one of the greatest and many tourists were coming each year. But nobody could’ve thought that this new year would literally celebrate a new life for the inhabitants. In a blink of an eye the reigning dynasty and the protectors of Kano died.

In a blink of an eye, the world lost of one his legend, increasing the fame of another. Chinjao got cocky and underestimated his opponent. He launched the attack that made him world famous, he split the earth in direction of the supernova. What he didn’t know was that Frayzah was already prepared, the traitor answer was more lethal. Two slicing air waves, the first one stopped Chinjao attack and kept going while the the second was going for the kill. Chinjao could barely see the attacks, he wanted to protect himself with Haki but it was too late. He got hit in the torso and fell forward grasping his chest in the hole he created.


In a blink of an eye, the bounty-hunter Nero found himself in front of Sai and cut him down before the man could even realize it. Sai was yelling to his man to attack when a shadow appeared in front of him. Before he could mouth a word, he was cut from multiples direction and when he began falling to the ground drowning, he began seeing all of his life and began crying. he couldn’t take the mantle of his grandfather. He couldn’t protect his country or even die as a real man while fighting. He was going to die from a blade he never saw and never will. It was the end, they were going to lose this war. Last thing he heard was a gun noise: « Baang ! ». With that noise was killed the de facto Leader of the Happo Navy that was bragging about killing pirates, Boo was dead, bullet in his head.


In a blink of an eye the blond pirate killed a disgraceful prince with a sword slash while his associates, a black man with a blue bomber jacket and a blond woman bean shooting with their respectives weapons at the rats that came towards them. At the same moment the woman accompanying Nero killed 150 soldiers with an air slash leaving the others too scared to move. It didn’t took the next person in line to gives order to the frightened soldiers. They just lost their three generals and the future leader of the country to three separate crew. It was not a fight they could win. And if loosing his face would permit to save the rest of his men, he will gladly lose it. With a yell he said :



- Everyone ! Disarm ! Disarm ! We surrender !

The info soon came to the king. In a blink on an eye, he lost everything and he had too much pride to bow to a pirate. Quickly rushing to one his guards, the king took a knife and cut his own throat.
In a blink of an eye Kano Country became someone else’s country. For better or worse, the countrymen didn’t knew what would happen but it was not like their future changed that much with the dead of the evil prince. #

PART 10:
- PRELUDE TO THE LEGION

My name is Jimmy Frayzah and in the blink of an eye my allies and I had won, now Kano was mine for the taking. I wasn't really expecting Chinjao to fall so easily, could it be that I had underestimated my own power? First it was Smoker, then it was Kuro and now it was the legendary leader of the Happo Navy, perhaps I need to scale back a bit in the future.


After I confirm his death, obvious from the large hole in his torso, I evaluate the market turned battlefield. Nero was quick to take off after getting himself involved but based on our history, I have zero doubt that we'll meet again. The destruction he and his friend left in their wake was incredible and the impression she seemed to leave on Mia was just as amazing, I've never seen her come out of her shell so much as she would during the next few days. It's like she found a kindred spirit, someone who gave her hope that there's still plenty of good in this world, but I think she regrets not asking for her name while she could. I just wish she'd accept Kane in the same way, I don't know what it is but their personalities clash and I can tell he's getting a bit sick of it. I wouldn't even blame my brother if he wanted to leave the crew but I'll deal with that if or when it ever comes down to it.

For now though, he continues to be my most trusted and proved that when he recruited the entirety of the 'Suicide Pirates' he had history with to sail under the Unwritten flag after the full surrender of the Happo Navy squad they engaged, apparently they have their own beef with the World Government which will be interesting to learn more about as I come to know them better.

All of Kano is in awe as their leadership is gone in one chaotic strike, well at least that's how it appeared at first but I was just able to notice something within the corpses spread around the massive ground splits caused by the abilities of the enemies. With an amputated arm and hidden among the a hundred plus dead bodies, was the prince still alive. Like the coward he was, he was playing dead, hoping to escape while nobody was watching. I could have easily killed him then but he wasn't my trophy, no he belonged with the Silver Hairs.

“Just remember this day, there's no reason our crews have to be enemies. I have one goal and that's simply to topple the World Government. So I hope you enjoy these tokens of my appreciation.”

I bluntly tell the blonde haired swordsman and his much larger crewmate as my crew hand over the prince and a decent portion of the loot found in the royal palace. I would later learn the name's of these two were Link and Akuma.


With my flag put up around the palace and days of cleanup, Kano was now under my protection and beginning to run smoothly again but I would still remain here for a few more months as I still needed to unlock the secrets of Hasshoken.....

....TO BE CONTINUED IN ARKHAM ISLAND!

~ Kano Adventures Part 9: Ka no kuni, the END ~

Link right after striking the Prince's hands turned his attention back at where he came from and where he is now. "Who's this fatso? ... Maybe a relic from the old age huh" he thought. He would then slowly walk back at the direction of Chinjao thinking things might change or end soon. "If we were to take him down then this country, no kingdom will crumble."

Link would then witness the raw power of the spiky black hair bounty hunter, "He's strong, no he's above me in skills" as he saw him take out what seemed like a powerful soldier of the country as his number 2 the younger swordswoman would take out some soldiers too. He would then witness the bounty hunter pull out a gun and take out one of them with a single bullet.

While they all looked fine with there own situation, it was different for me. Jimmy was the one who wanted to start the whole thing, to begin with, he was the one who decided to take over kano to take one step towards his ultimate goal, and blonde hair guy was merely wanted to enjoy the ride; they were all different from me. Jimmy was doing everything in his power to take revenge against the world government who had stolen his and his brother's childhood. I began to wonder if I would have a similar life by embracing reality like they do?
Link glared at the bounty hunter knowing there was or would be another that may get in his way and become an obstacle. But that wasn't all, it was the fact he was a swordsman and performed techniques and abilities that exceeded his own. Link would tighten his grip on his sword handle in frustration.

"We are leaving now!" Link would shout who was already frustrated from the nightmare he had been on the far coast of Kano and now seeing someone stronger. Though this would come hand in hand when the soldiers of Kano submitted themselves to the Unwritten Pirates, the pirates who where ex-marine soldiers.

"Hey Link, why don't we claim this under Silver Hair Territory?" Law would ask Link which he would get a reply. "If anything from today was a learning experience there are others who are far stronger than i. If i was to make a move, I no all of us will perish and be unnecessary collateral damage." Just those words would shut Law up with sweat trickling down his cheek at the power of such foes.

"Boy!" ... "Linky" Akuma and Vanya would think as they would stare at Link knowing he still had miles ahead of his journey.

“Just remember this day, there's no reason our crews have to be enemies. I have one goal and that's simply to topple the World Government. So I hope you enjoy these tokens of my appreciation.”

I bluntly tell the blonde haired swordsman and his much larger crewmate as my crew hand over the prince and a decent portion of the loot found in the royal palace. I would later learn the name's of these two were Link and Akuma.
Link would take his offer hesitantly, grabbing the prince by the scuff then toss him in front of the Ex-Marine. "He's yours, though I have questions now isn't the time to ask. But if we ever meet again I'll ask them ... "

"Hey, Link do you think he knew who we were? ... You reckon we are famous now?" Law would ask by whispering into Link's ear annoying him as he would bat him away.

"Just pick that up Law and Akuma and lets head out now" he would say.

Link, etc. would then make their way back to the harbor to leave the island.

As they all made their way onto the ship, Akuma would seek out Link with questions though it was the same for Link too. "The bad feeling I had was those two, the Ex-Marine and Bounty Hunter, I had." as Link would reply "May have been, but did you take out your frustration in dealing with the prince and the bodyguard" as Akuma would nod in agreement as Link would see and smile.

"If anything I am glad the ship was safe and all the crewman" as Akuma would say "Kano made me know my weakness and that Gohaduken" as Link would agree "That one attack is a dual-sided sword. So I am banning you using that again unless your life depends on it"

"Though I have many questions, for one I need to meet up with that Bounty Hunter and Ex-Marine in the future. Also, see how I fare when I do meet them again." Link would continue to say on after reprimanding Akuma on that one technique.

If anything from today, the citizens of Kano witnessed was out of the ordinary. The fight caused such a huge attraction, like moths to a flame. But they weren't as close if not near them for the most due to how badly the environment and houses were crushed and destroyed from the aftermath.


"Linky so where are we headed to now? ... hmmm," Vanya would raise a question as Law would reply "Hey Link I say let's follow one of those guys and maybe ask them to join us huh?" in calming the mood as the duo would come up to Link and Akuma.

Link turns around "Lets set sail, we are headed to the Grand Line"

"I will write what I learned from this on my journals, the day I had my eyes open to the reality of the world and what it brings"

Vanquishing the Happo Navy
Kallavan's ship was busy a lot more than usual. Men and women were running around and preparing for what was about to be a large naval battle before they could enter the mainland. They were a single ship filled to the brim with manpower and weapons but even that had its disadvantages against several ships at once. At the front of the ship, Kallavan stood, arms crossed in front of his chest as his eyes glared at the slowly approaching Kano country. The man ached at the thought of another country claiming to be the most powerful navy in the realm. Such children and he was about to prove them wrong.

Or so he wanted to at least. The man was confident in his abilities but this would be a real test for his crew and their collective abilities.

"We're ready sir. Waiting for your command." A dark long-haired youth would say as he walked up to his commander.
"Very well. Give the word Captain Yuu. Lower our trajectory speed, we'll need to be able to maneuver in case something unexpected arrives."
"As you wish" Captain Kanda Yuu said as he bowed and turned around spreading the message or order he had just received.

Kallavan never made the island escape his gaze and his crew could feel power radiating from the man. Only Kanda could walk up to him right now without losing his composure. A vein would creep upon his forehead as anger was clearly boiling.

"Insolent fools..." The man whispered with a faint tone of regret in his voice.
