Dorian Frog is still fighting Death Karambit, but wants to help with dealing with the Regulars, but in the meantime they will send their own regulars after them. While this is happening, Yu Han Sung rushes past Dorian Frog and Phonsekal Drak in order to protect Baam and the rest from Ha Cheonhee. However, Ha Cheonhee defends against Yu Han Sung's attack using Sylpheed to produce a defensive barrier. Ha Cheonhee responds with using Shining Fan to produce a large attack that Yu Han Sung is not able to defend against, but Ha Yuri Zahard saves both Yu Han Sung and the regulars using her green droplets. The administration from Zahard's Altar offers to help, while several Sponsored Regular Teams emerge from their warships.
The C-Rank Red Beard ask for permission to deal with Baam and his team, which Ha Cheonhee hesitantly agrees to. Red Beard asks Baam to surrender in an arrogant manner, but him alongside Yuni Sona and Alex are taken out instantly by Baam's orb attack. This surprises all the rankers from Zahard's Army, with Yu Han Sung even acknowledge his power.
Meanwhile, Evankhell has created an inferno which is burning both warships, regulars, and regulars alike. She then unleashes a skill called Wailing Flames, which kills both Cha Tanoa and Shakhul. Elpathion notes that he is not able to control her using his lighthouses, she is like a natural disaster.
Inside the Last Station Hwa Ryun is leading Rak Wraithraiser and David Hockney towards the exit, when they stop to take in the spectacle of Evankhell's flames. Rak is completely mesmerized by the flames, which causes Levy who is following them to wonder what they are doing.
Short-hair Baam and Ha Jin-Sung.
I recall there only being one shot of short-haired Baam (S1Baam) and Ha Jin-Sung together in the main series too. A student to fulfill his master's long-lived wish. A forced relationship of sorts, so an unusual discipleship for sure. They both respect each other, but Baam himself may find it difficult to think of Ha Jin-sung as simply his master.
Baam's entered the main stage of sorts for the first time in ages, and he's doing well haha. They're C-class Regulars, so there's that, but they're not exactly 10 Familiy so they're not the best. Still, they have sponsors so they're above average C-class Regulars. Actually, in a air fight like this, there's not too many C-Class regulars who can fight properly hehe.
Yu Han-sung... there's no need to describe how he treats Regulars (...) But it seems that at least he has pride as the Master Proctor to the Floor of Tests, so he lashes out at Ha Chun-hui. Double standards to the max, but he can still look classy while doing it.. We need a Quint for sure. Hehe.
Finally we have Kalavan. For Kalavan.. I personally wanted to give him more of a sense of being an elite military officer as a twist. He knows Ha Jin-sung from before, but there's an age gap. Kalavan is a character who has multiple layers to his true intentions.. He's strong... and perhaps scary...;;
These days I realize more and more how difficult it is to release a fantasy manhwa on a weekly basis haha. Personally, I feel that it's fun on its own right, and I feel like I'm living in a blessed environment. Of course, separate from my personal life, in regards to my work I find that there's a lot I wish I can improve on, and a lot I need to improve on. I wish by section there can be improvements to the system as we move up towards success.
And so, I'll be back next week with battles that keep getting bigger and bigger. I hope you all have a healthy, not-too-cold, happy week.^^
