Its more dangerous than I think?

Jin repeated Kashimirs words as he sheathed his sword, and his companion nodded in affirmation.

Indeed. It doesnt have a no-killing rule, unlike other competitions, so its very dangerous. Although its true that most of the competitors are novices, some competitors are just there for slaughter.

The Cosmos Arena had no rules, as expected from a pirate-organized fight.

Including murder, there were no other restrictions for special weapons and tools. It was a crazy competition that even allowed murder or assassination before the fight.

You just need to defeat your opponent using any method. Theres a story where a guy held the opponents family hostage and threatened to kill them. All in order to win, of course.

Geett the ltest vels on no/v/elbin(.)c/om

Which was why, even though the opponents were only 2 to 3-star, competitors had to anticipate dirty tricks.

4 to 5-star who dont know anything will become their prey. After walking the world while being oblivious of the worlds dark side, they become humiliated by the tricks and gimmicks used in that crazy competition. Well, Im not saying that youll experience the same thing. You are well, far off from that level.

Indeed, he wasnt even comparable to those people.

There are also fighters who are above 6-star who take down the opponent with the use of immense strength. At that point, it doesnt matter if they use tricks or not. These are the true predators of the arena. Well, theyre just perverts who come for the stimulation.


Yes. You know, those kinds of people. Sadists who destroy their enemy and feel satisfaction from itthe most dangerous people.

Man, what kind of competition allows this stuff to happen?

According to Kashimir, it was a dirty, low contest. One characterized by filthy scuffles that enticed its audience to drink and gamble.

Well, the official name isnt a competition, its just an arena. If it wasnt for Dante, I wouldnt have asked you to enter.

Surely he wont fit into the crowd. Is there some insane grand prize awaiting for first place?

The winner can choose from a plethora of prizes or one thousand gold coins. To a commoner, that would be a lot of money. But for the successor of the Hairan Clan, it would be pocket change.

Then is his mortal enemy there or something?

As of now, we have no information regarding his entry. But in my opinion

Kashimir paused for a second.

Maybe he wants to test his swordsmanship. To see if his blade will glow in the darkness of evil tricks. If not, hes just throwing himself into a **hole.

That made no sense.

It would make no sense if Dante really entered the dirty competition in order to test his swordsmanship.

Either way, I feel compelled to go. Dante Hairan I could never dream of fighting him.

Before his regression, prior to his banishment from the clan, the commoners would always debate who was stronger with the swordDante or Beradin.

Because they had many similarities.

They were both over 7-star at an early age, were nominated as the next patriarch of their respective powerful clans, and achieved 9-star at the age of 30. Whenever they encountered each other during a meeting, the press would go off. On top of that, they were the same age.

At the time, they got more attention than the Runcandel children. Eldest Sister Luna didnt present herself too much, and Eldest Brother fell behind them.

There werent any other second-generation Runcandel who was stronger than Dante other than Luna. Though, there wasnt definitive proof that he was stronger than all of the Runcandel children, but thats what the world thought.

Hes a fellow Im curious about. Theres nothing bad from meeting him once. Hopefully, hes not hot-headed like the Beradin from my past life.

However, Kashimirs exaggerated attitude was getting on his nerves. He couldve just naturally asked Jin to compete, but he was promoting it as if he were a businessman selling drugs.

And Im sure the Seven-Colored Peacock doesnt have spare time to investigate Dante Hairan. All of the best agents should be investigating the Zipfels, Alu, and Kinzelo. I doubt that its just some idle information they found

Thinking until that point, Jin smiled.

It was Fathers orders. The information about Dante is likely to have come from the Runcandel Clan. And now that I think about it, back at the Garden, Father sent me off first so he could talk to Kashimir alone.

He pondered the possibility of Kashimir sending reports to Cyron regarding his progress ever since that day at the Garden of Swords. However, it wasnt of any importance. There werent any disadvantages that would affect Jin.

Instead, he felt a little mischievous.

Hmmm Sir Kashimir, do I really need to go?


I dont really want to attend such a pathetic battle. And I can face Dante Hairan anytime in the future.

Ehem! Young Master Jin, please think about it. You would obviously meet him many times since you are a Runcandel, but would there be an opportunity to fight him? It could be a once-in-a-lifetime chance

Haha, Im not some fighting legend or anything. And Ive recently been feeling tired from fighting Lady Alisa.

Y-Young Master, dont be like that Just trust me and try participating. I-Isnt it a chance to evaluate Dante Hairans strength? Hahaha, my tongue is getting twisted. Maybe Im getting a heatstroke

Jin pointed to the window and laughed. Outside, snow was falling. The early January blizzards were rolling in.


Oh, my mistake again. Anyways, Young Master Jin! Ive already filled out your entry form. Just trust me and enter, ok? Im sure this will be a great experience for you!

Well If you say so, then theres nothing I can do. Ill participate.

Thank you, Young Master Jin! Oh, and on top of that, you must leave tomorrow. The schedule is tight. That is all!

Tomorrow? Wait, Sir Kashimir!

Kashimir quickly escaped the training area without looking back.

And Jins suspicions were solidified.

Hes definitely reporting my progress to Father. And this must be the first orderto face Dante Hairan.

Jin chuckled. He knew his father was interested in him and his progress, but he didnt think that it was enough to make him intervene.

His siblings would go crazy if they found out.

And Sir Kashimir is terrible at acting Is it just in front of me? I heard he was really good at politics after becoming the ruler of Tikan.

Jin chuckled once more.

The Cosmos Arena was hosted on an island south of the Bellard Empire. It was right outside of Bellard territory, so the surrounding ocean was the pirates playground.

Jin went alone to that island.

Its a mission ordered by Father, so its right to not bring anyone else.

If he brought anyone with him, Jin would have an emotional attachment that could potentially drag him down.

He knew what his father wanted to say: to sweep the competition alone with a sword.

Using magic and spiritual energy around a massive audience was crazy.

Its been a while since I received a solo mission after the one in Mamit. But just like last time, Im dealing with outlaws.

After arriving in the Bellard Empire, he took a ferry to the island, using up a thick bag of gold.

The island didnt look nice.

It had the ambience of the lowest of the low infesting the place, with stenched streets that had fresh streaks of blood everywhere.

Any type of disturbance would get one stabbed. In addition to being a remote island, since it was filled with pirates who tasted the bitter and sweet of life, it was impossible to maintain order in the place.


Every five steps, there were people laughing hysterically, driven mad by drugs.

But not all were like that.

Occasionally, there were houses with guards and children, and knights who had decent armor. They were either competitors or spectators of the arena.

Jin began to follow one of these respectable people. He felt that he could arrive at the reception desk after following the man.

And just as he thought, after walking for thirty minutes, he reached the reception desk. A single-table set up in front of an arena that looked worse than a pig pen.

I came to register for the arena.

He held out the entry form that Kashimir filled out, and the receptionist opened his eyes. Hair covered his big body, and tattoos crawled all over his arms.

Huh? The time frame for registrations already passed. Fuck off. Better if you die while leaving.

Its passed? Im sure you guys are open until sundown.

Oh, I just dont want to take any more entries. You deaf?

The man then formed a circle with his thumb and index finger. Clearly, he wanted money.

Jin knew to end money-related problems by paying up.

With the added interest of beating some sense into the guy.


Jin kicked the table to the side. As the man tried to stand up, Jin slammed his fist on the crown of his head. In Jins fist was the crumpled registration form.

Erk! Argggh, this bastard.

Take it. Ill give you the money.

And he threw some gold coins on the ground. The guys expression brightened, and he nodded.

Jin could only be surprised at the strength of his punch, which could have severely injured a trained 4-star knight.

However, even though the guy took the hit, he immediately stood up and laughed at the sight of money.

Registration complete! Hahaha! A hotshot kid. I like it. Youll fight in group 13. Take this and go inside. The other fellows will escort you.

The man handed him a small piece of paper with something written on it.

(Group 13, Jin Grey.)

Kuhaha, welcome to the Cosmos Arena, filled with love and fervor. Try your best!

Since he struck me for no reason, Ill stick him with the strong guys. Oh, and if this kid doesnt survive tonight, Ill cook him and feed him to the sharks.

The mansmiling with his gold-plated teethwas the host of the competition.

Pirate King Cosmos.
