Soul Land IV (Douluo Dalu) : Ultimate Fighting - Chapter 718
Chapter 718 – Fighting The Sixth Years
“Alright.” Liu Feng nodded and didn’t say much, but Lan Xuanyu never doubted his determination.
Lan Xuanyu continued, “For the two against two, Xiuxiu and I will go up. According to our current arrangement, we have to win at least two out of the first four matches. Then, the final seven against seven match will be the decisive one.”
Xiao Qi nodded his head slightly, and a gratified expression appeared on his face. After continuous training, Lan Xuanyu, the class leader, was becoming more mature. In terms of age and soul power, he might be the youngest and weakest in the entire class, but he was without a doubt the pillar of the entire Star Battle Experimental Class. It could be said that without him, there wouldn’t be this experimental class that was the focus of the entire school.
The upper echelons of the academy were already aware of the good results they had obtained on Dragon Source Planet and were very optimistic about their future.
Xiao Qi really hoped that these children would be able to create more miracles. One of the important criteria to assess whether an Outer Court teacher-in-charge was outstanding was how many of his students would be able to get into the Inner Court, and Xiao Qi believed that this batch of students would bring him a huge surprise.
While Lan Xuanyu’s team was discussing their tactics, the sixth years were also doing the same. This time, they were fighting for the honor of the entire class. If they won this battle, they would have a huge advantage in the Inner Court exam after graduation.
The current fourth-years, the academy’s unprecedented Star War Experimental Class, had defeated them twice in the past when they were first years. There was no doubt that the academy valued the Star War Experimental Class very much. Although they were two years higher than the other party, their influence in the academy was far inferior to those juniors. Even their former class leader was willing to be demoted to go there.
They were already a joke in the Outer Court and many people even said that they were the worst class of the Outer Court in recent decades.
Whether it was the teachers or students in the sixth year, they had always been under such pressure and the pain in their hearts could be imagined. No one was willing to be called trash, much less carry such a reputation to the Inner Court.
What would the teachers of the Inner Court think of them? If the teachers of the Inner Court wore judgment, how many of them would be able to get into the Inner Court?
Other than Sima Xian, who was relatively confident, even Li Siqi and Li Siming didn’t have much confidence in succeeding.
That was why they thought of this method. Only by cleansing their previous humiliation would they have a chance to improve. Although it was only right for the sixth years to win against fourth years, and it would be even more embarrassing if they lost, they had no other choice. After all, they had already lost twice.
They applied to the academy and finally obtained this opportunity. They had to win and they had to win beautifully to prove that they were capable.
At this moment, the entire sixth year was extremely united. All of them had high hopes for this match.
Compared to a few years ago, Sima Xian had completely grown up. Perhaps it was because of his Martial Soul, but he appeared slightly older than his actual age.
He was over two meters tall, and his shoulders were extremely broad. He didn’t have much muscles on his body, but he gave off an abnormally strong feeling. His eye sockets were deep, and his entire body emitted a dangerous aura. As the undisputed number one among the sixth year, the pressure he was under was undoubtedly the greatest.
The arrangement of troops was completed and he was trying his best to calm his emotions. The six people who were already prepared by his side were quietly waiting for the competition to begin.
This match would be held in Shrek Academy’s arena. This was also the place where students sparred daily. There were perfect protective measures that could withstand mechas fighting inside.
There were no students from the other years to spectate, only students from the two years were allowed in.
When the sixth years arrived at the martial arts arena, they realized that there weren’t any fourth years in the spectator area.
Weren’t they going to watch the competition? No, they should be completing their Sky Fighter missions and wouldn’t dare to waste time.
After all, the sixth years had also been fourth years and knew how difficult it was to complete the missions.
But after completing the Sky Fighter missions, any remaining Sky Fighter would undergo a complete change.
The current sixth years were no longer the 29 students from before. There were only 21 students left and the remaining eight that had not completed the Sky Fighter missions were eliminated.
On the spectator stand, 14 sixth years were waiting nervously. They had completed the Sky Fighter missions and were now quasi graduates of Shrek Academy’s Outer Court. Most of them had Two-Word Battle Armors and were qualified to graduate from Shrek Academy’s Outer Court.
There were still a few people working hard to complete their Two-Word Battle Armor before graduation.
They had to win! They clenched their fists subconsciously and stared nervously at the empty arena, quietly waiting for this honorable match to begin.
To them, this battle was simply too important.
If they won, they would represent the academy to spar with the branch. If they could win again, they would be able to hold their heads high and welcome the graduation exam and the upcoming Inner Court exam.
If they lost this match, they would probably be the most miserable graduates of Shrek Academy in the past few decades.
Hence, they were determined to win this match. Everyone knew the consequences of losing this match, but they still agreed to this match without hesitation.
They were about to graduate, and those who could get into the Inner Court were as rare as phoenix feathers and qilin horns. They were all young and had hot blood in their veins. Before leaving the academy, they hoped to burn their hot blood for the last time, unleash their youth to the fullest, and fight for the honor that belonged to them.
On the other side of the spectator stand, there were over 20 people. Seated at the head of the table was Shrek Academy’s Sea God Pavilion’s Vice Pavilion Master, Wang Tianyu. This mighty figure actually came personally and sat next to him was the leader of the School of Life, Shrek Academy’s Sea God Pavilion’s Senior Vice Pavilion Master, Elder Shu.
Elder Shu always had a smile on his face and he looked so old. He didn’t seem to have changed much compared to before, but those who were familiar with him would realize that his eyes weren’t as bright as before.
Behind them were mostly Shrek Academy’s Outer Court teachers and some Inner Court teachers.
Zheng Longjiang was there as well, and he was currently seated in a corner of the spectator stand. After he found out about this match, he specially applied to the Inner Court for permission to watch. He had always been very interested in Lan Xuanyu, and these juniors had caused him to suffer in their first year. This was something he had never encountered before since entering Shrek Academy.
After a few years, he wanted to see how far these juniors had grown.
A figure descended from the sky and slowly landed in the middle of the arena. It was Shrek Academy’s Outer Court Dean, Ying Luohong. That’s right, the Dean herself would be the referee for this competition to ensure the safety of the participating students.
This was a real actual combat competition, not a virtual competition in Douluo World.
“Both parties, enter.” Ying Luohong’s calm voice resounded throughout the entire place.
On both sides of the arena, both parties walked into the arena with seven people each.
On the fourth years’ side, Lan Xuanyu walked in front with Tang Yuge, Bai Xiuxiu, Lan Mengqin, Qian Lei, Liu Feng, and Yuanen Huihui behind him.
On the sixth years’ side, the one in front was Sima Xian. Behind Sima Xian were the Black Tortoise Shield soul master Li Siming and Li Siqi brothers, and Lan Xuanyu didn’t recognize any of the four people behind them. The two students who had fought with them before weren’t among them.
