The man in black then said.
“First of all, if you win, our Japanese government will publicly apologize to China and pay compensation of one million dollars for each of the dead.”
After he finished, Ye Lu did not have any reaction, but continued to wait for his next words.
So, he continued.
“Then, we our the strongest gong methods, martial skills and magic weapons and magic treasures of the Great Japanese Empire, you can pick one of each.”
Hearing him finish, Ye Lu skimmed his lips and said.
“I don’t care about any of your Japanese messy gong methods and martial skills, I’ll consider this one for something else, is there anything else?”
The man in black then said again.
“Also, we will send you an unhatched divine beast egg.”
Hearing the last condition, Ye Lu really moved, because he really wanted to get an “Original Spirit Beast” for a long time, but of course the other two conditions were also good.
So, after thinking about it, Ye Lu said.
“Okay, but there is one condition, I don’t care about that gong method and martial arts skill, let’s change it to another condition, this condition is also very simple, from now on, all your officials should not talk about the ‘Great Japanese Empire’, it’s very disturbing to hear, agree? If you agree, I accept the challenge.”
The man in black thought for a moment then nodded and said.
“Good, tomorrow at midnight, Tokyo Skytree, I’ll be waiting for you!”
Ye Luo made an “OK” gesture indifferently.
However, when they heard that Ye Lu had agreed to the Sword Saint’s engagement, the people of Death’s Shadow were not at all calm, because they understood how strong the Sword Saint Ogata Jubei was.
At the age of thirteen, Ogata defeated the Japanese master of the “Ryuu”, Mumashibei, and at the age of sixteen, he defeated the “Kansai Swordsman”, Akiyama.
In addition, it is not easy to be called a “sage of the sword”, as one must be a great warrior or a great master of his generation.
In fact, the reason why Ogata Jubei was called the “Saint of Swords” was that he founded a school of martial arts and martial arts techniques into the path of the “Sansho-ryu”, and in doing so, he defeated Chiba Dojiro of the “Ichiban-ryu” family, Yanagi Ma-ryu of the “Nida-ryu” family, as well as a dozen other major schools of kendo, such as the “Futen-ryu”, the “Kagashin-Meiji-ryu”, the “Ichiban-ryu” and the “Shinin-ryu”, which are among the top ten schools of kendo in Japan.
Eventually, Ogata Jubei officially created the newest school, Sansho-ryu.
At the same time, Ogata Jubei was said to have crossed the “Saint” level and became the apex of the secular world. In short, this “Saint of Swords” Ogata Jubei was not the same as the one Abe Ryuho had just defeated.
Of course, it was too late to say anything now, as Ye Lu had already agreed to do so.
The crowd gathered around were also slightly surprised, as everyone thought it was over, but who knew there was still such a thing, and it looked like they would have to return to their country two more days later.
However, apart from a very small number of people who were sweating for Ye Lu, most of them were looking forward to Ye Lu taking out the so-called “Sword Saint” tomorrow night.
From everyone’s point of view, the reason why the “Sword Saint” was challenging was to get some face back, and it would be great if the “Masked Man in Silk Stockings” could beat his opponent’s face again.
After agreeing, Ye Lu looked at the man in black and said.
“I have a request for this challenge, that is, the things that I was promised, the ‘magic weapon’ and the ‘magic treasure’, you better give me a list, after I pick them, you will bring them here tomorrow directly, I don’t want to follow you guys to pick them. follow you guys to pick them out, to be honest, I can’t trust you guys.”
Hearing Ye Lu’s words, the man in black thought for a few seconds, then nodded and said.
“Alright, I will list each item as a choice, don’t worry, if you are not satisfied, you can always terminate this challenge.”
Hearing this guy’s words, Ye Lu then smiled and nodded his head.
He dared to agree to this challenge because, just now, he felt that his cultivation had broken through again, only unfortunately, it had currently entered a period of weakness, and he was unable to do anything right now.
Moreover, there was no restriction on the battle tomorrow night, which meant that both the “Ghost Bat” and the “Wine Swallow Boy” could be used. With his improved cultivation, the “Exploding Yuan Dan” and various means, Ye Lu felt that he should be able to fight.
There was another point. To be honest, since the other side had come to challenge him, if he really refused, when the time came, the Japanese would definitely seize on this point and probably discredit the operation comprehensively.
“Anyway, as long as we win, wouldn’t it be great to make them declare, apologise, pay for and send things!”
Ye Lu muttered as he gritted his teeth and walked towards the bottom of the “Qing Shui Temple”.
At this moment, he was really at the end of his rope, his body was sore and he had no strength left, but on the surface, he had to put on a dashing appearance.
Luckily, the Shadow of Death people had made arrangements and they flew over to take Ye Lu to the car.
“How can you agree to that ‘Sword Saint’s’ challenge, ‘Brother Stocking’?”
“The head of Death Shadow in Japan looked at Ye Lu and said with some concern.
Ye Lu smiled and said.
“It’s just an idle matter of life and death, how can we let that Japanese monkey ‘Sword Saint’ be arrogant, don’t you think?”
Hearing Ye Luo finish, that person in charge also laughed, but then he followed and said with a bitter smile.
“Well, however, I think that Ogata Jubei should not be that innocent in challenging you, I think he should want to borrow you to ‘sacrifice his sword’ and use it to break through to the ‘saint level’, he is now ‘peak 9th level Sovereign’, only half a step away from ‘Saint level’.”
“However, you might not know that it is too difficult to break through to ‘Saint Grade’, so many people in the mundane world are all stuck at this bottleneck, which is why many of the top mundane cultivators end up joining the sects.”
This was something that Ye Lu had heard, the higher up the bottleneck of realm breakthrough, the harder it was, mainly because of a few reasons, the first being that the lower the cultivation level the more traceable it was, there were many experiences of people who had gone before and many people to guide, the further back it was the harder it was.
The second is because the lower the level, the more auxiliary resources are available, such as pills and the like, and even breakthroughs can be forcibly assisted by experts.
Lastly, the more you cultivate, the more obvious the defects of the earlier stages become, and when you feel them, you will find it difficult to remedy them.
That person in charge then continued.
“However, no matter what, since you have decided to do this, we will definitely do our best to support you, just say what support you need, I will apply with the headquarters, and if we don’t have it here, we will ship it over to you from the headquarters in China.”
Hearing his words, Ye Lu’s eyes then lit up.
He thought for a moment and said.
“When you say that, I really have something I want you to help me with, is there any ‘demonic beast’ blood, that is, something like ‘Cat Again’ that has some kind of ‘divine beast ‘ bloodline?”
When asked by Ye Lu, that person in charge pondered.
He rubbed his chin and thought for half a day before saying.
“The blood of a demonic beast shouldn’t be hard to find, however, the blood of a demonic beast with a ‘divine beast’ bloodline that you mentioned, I really don’t know if there is any, you know no one has done such a thing before ah, how about this, I will contact the headquarters and then help you in my name on the ‘Underworld App’ and post an urgent mission on it.”
Ye Lu nodded and said.
“Okay, it better be quick, I can have a confirmation and preparation time in advance.”
If there was a beast blood that had a powerful bloodline power, it might be easier to deal with, but, in the end, it would depend on the level of the “Sword Saint”.
Soon, the story of Ye Lu’s defeat of Abe Liu Feng spread on the internet, and the “Masked Man in Silk Stockings” went from being the “Guardian of the Capital” to the height of a national hero.
The use of “psychic magic” by Abe Ryuho, the “chief” of the “Yin Yang Riao”, at the last moment of the duel was, of course, unanimously condemned by everyone, including many people in Japan.
Ye Luo took advantage of his weakness to study how to deal with tomorrow night’s challenge.
It was necessary to consolidate his cultivation, as there were plenty of medium-grade spirit stones, so it was fine to waste a little.
When he fought with Abe Liufeng, many of his moves were unexpected, which disrupted Abe Liufeng’s position and caused him to lose his bearings, including the last fatal strike, which was a sneak attack that succeeded.
Especially with his own “Burning Heaven’s Wrath” attack, I’m afraid his opponent won’t give him that chance.
“Looks like we’ll have to use some other methods.”
Ye Luo muttered to himself.
Even with the search function, there was no way to understand all the techniques, martial arts and other complicated things, and it was likely that the things he needed were in these things.
So, Ye Lu first searched for “martial arts” or “spells” that were related to “mental attacks”.
Ye Lu felt that he could only find another way out of this, as Ogata Jubei might be good at martial arts, but not necessarily at mental defence.
However, after checking, Ye Lu’s brow furrowed, as he found that there were indeed “martial arts” and “spells” in the various abilities of the glasses.
However, the problem was that the “martial arts” required contact with the opponent’s head, while the “spells” could indeed be used for remote mind control and the like, but Ye Lu’s current level could not send these “spells”, so he could only sigh in disbelief.
Then, Ye Lu began to look up things related to “weapon patterns”.
Soon, he found something interesting, that is, the weapon pattern could build a summoning formation, of course, the weapon pattern alone was not enough, and blood was definitely needed as a guide, but the advantage of this kind of summoning formation was that one did not have to painstakingly draw the summoning formation with blood every time, just pour two kinds of blood into it and start the ritual.
“Okay, that’s it then.”
Ye Luo snapped his fingers, then said.
“This time, I guess all the previous tactics won’t be of much use, so there’s no need to talk too much to that Sword Saint, just cripple him and be done with it.”
After making up his mind, he began to study this auxiliary formation “Artifact Pattern”.
Ye Lu found that this “weapon pattern” was really quite complicated, and it was a “weapon pattern” that covered a large area, so it would probably take some time to draw it.
“It looks like I’ll have to go to the bottom of the ‘Clear Sky Tower’ in Tokyo to have a look later, but it’s better to go at night to draw the weapon pattern.”
This time, Ye Lu quickly locked in a method for the battle, and then he called the head of Death’s Shadow in Japan once again to put a little pressure on them.
However, according to what he had said before, this was not a difficult task for the Shadow of Death, because among the seven major organisations in the underground world, the Shadow of Death had the largest number of people and was also the most widespread organisation, so this should not be difficult for them.
The person in charge replied that the trouble was that they didn’t know which demon beasts were the most suitable, after all, they didn’t know much about the bloodline of demon beasts.
The one who knew the most about demon beasts was the Beast Alliance, but how could such a huge beast like the Beast Alliance care about such trivial matters?
So, Ye Lu began to recover and research, and the whole internet started to ferment about the battle between the “Masked Man in Silk Stockings” and the “Yin Yang Liao”.
Soon, of course, the tables were turned and the story was pointed at the Japanese “Sword Saint” Ogata Jubei.
In China, almost everyone felt that Ogata was taking advantage of the situation because he had chosen to fight the day after the Stocking Masked Warrior fight, which was a very unpleasant timing, and because when the Stocking Masked Warrior fought Abe Ryuho, the Sword Saint had already made his best move, so it was a bit sinister to choose this time to challenge him.
So, it didn’t take long for public opinion to start pushing “Sword Saint” Ogata Jubei into the limelight.
For Ogata Jubei, there is nothing more precious than a sword, and nothing more interesting than practising it.
The famous sword he uses is called “Douichi Monogatari”, which he found in the body of a dragon beast after killing it.
It was the sharpest sword in Japan at the moment, and Ogata Jubei felt that even the fearsome weapon in Ye Lu’s hand would be difficult to cut through it.
“My lord, there are ruthlessly many very unfavourable comments against you on the internet right now.”
One of his underlings said as he looked at Ogata Soldierguy during dinner.
Without looking up, Ogata Jubei asked.
“Can unfavourable remarks kill me?”
The subordinate said.
Ogata Jubei then said as he continued to eat his meal.
“Then ignore them, when you are the one who wins, all talk is a cloud, the strong are never afraid of that, only the weak worry so much.”
“Anyone who dares to question me in front of me has been killed before my eyes with a single sword.”
After saying that, Ogata Jubei continued to concentrate on his meal.
It took Ye Lu a hundred days to get himself into the best shape and to sleep, and it was around two o’clock in Ye Li that he changed his clothes and took his magic weapon, the “Gnosis Pen”, to the bottom of the “Sky Tower” in Tokyo.
When he saw the tower, he was amazed by the height of the building.
The 634-metre tall Skytree was once certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s tallest tower, and the second tallest building in the world.
However, Ye Lu had no time to enjoy the scenery, he had to finish the formation quickly, otherwise it would be bad if other people saw it and got suspicious.
After he started drawing, Ye Lu found that the “magic treasure” was indeed much better than the “magic weapon”, not only the texture was smoother to draw, but the pattern of laws drawn was also stronger than the previous one drawn with the “burin gold pen”.
Of course, what was more important was that only a “Dharma Treasure” grade pen could produce a “Dharma Treasure”.
However, for Ye Lu, there was still a long way to go before he could make a ‘magic treasure’.
“Using this to create a ‘spatial magic weapon’ will definitely get twice the result with half the effort.”
Ye Luo muttered in his heart as he drew the pattern of the weapon while holding the “enlightenment pen”.
However, just when the pattern was about to be finished, an unexpected guest suddenly came, an alcoholic who probably lived in the area.
After he came over and looked at Ye Lu somewhat curiously, he asked.
“Young man, what are you doing here?”
Ye Luo had a mask on his face beforehand, so he was not worried about him seeing his face, so he once again increased his speed to finish drawing the last of the “weapon patterns”, and at the same time said to the drunken man.
“I can’t wait for tomorrow’s match, so I’ve come to see where it’s best to watch it from, I’ve even bought binoculars.”
The drunken man then said with a smile.
“You want to see the ‘Sword Saint’, right? I’m not going to lie, you’re not as good as me at this point, because I’m from the ‘Sword Saint’s’ family.”
Hearing this guy’s words, Ye Lu immediately had an urge to get him killed.
However, following this guy then smiled and continued.
“Hehehe, but, I’m just a cook in his family, I can’t talk to Lord ‘Sword Saint’ at all, so I can’t help you, just try to come early tomorrow ……”
Following that, the guy stumbled away.
The next day in the evening, the blood of the demon beast of “Death Shadow” was finally brought, and what surprised Ye Lu was that it was not a bucket but a boatload of blood.
“‘Stocking warrior’ come on, we have as much blood as you want, and it’s all the blood of quite powerful demon beasts.”
That person in charge looked at Ye Lu and said with a smile.
