Chapter 556: Fighting Again
Being able to control Natural Energy isn’t an easy task. It seems that people in this world are indeed much stronger than the ninjas in the Naruto World. In addition, Shanks is at the peak. And he could easily absorb it.
“Life? Indeed, it feels full of vitality…”
Shanks answered and looked at the wine floating in the sky brightly. He couldn’t help but took several more cups from it in a row. And after he poured it down, he wiped the corner of his mouth, revealing a trace of satisfaction.
Upon seeing this, Naito glanced at the remaining amount in the sky, and since he didn’t feel like drinking anymore, he waved his hand lightly, and the remaining wine suddenly dissipated.
Shanks, who saw him wasting this wine, felt pity.
“What a waste.”
“If you can beat me. I will make you hundred of bottles for you.” Naito looked at Shanks indifferently.
Shanks smirked, and a light flashed in his eyes as he said, “Although I don’t want to fight. But since you wanna do it, I’m in.”
As soon as his voice fell, the Haoshoku Haki in Shank’s body surged slightly again, although it didn’t burst out violently, it surrounded him, revealing an awe-inspiring aura!
Moreover, although Shank said that he didn’t want to fight, in fact, his eyes were flashing with an extremely strong fighting spirit.
Once, he tested his swordsmanship with Mihawk and got a tie. Later, he heard that Naito and Mihawk also got a tie. At that time, he had the idea of trying and fight with Naito.
Unfortunately, Naito became a marine, and he didn’t take the initiative to provoke the marine and start a war, so he pressed that thought in his heart.
He didn’t expect that within a few months, Naito will come out to the sea and shake the world. He first defeated the Yonko Bigmom, then Kaido the beast, and now he came for him.
Compared to Naito, Shanks’ motive is much stronger!
Watching this scene, his crew members finally stood up one after another, took a deep breath, and watched with solemn expressions.
“It’s finally about to start…”
“Stay back, and don’t you dare interfere.”
Beckman glanced at Shanks and Naito, and after speaking in a deep voice, he led the others and fell back.
Unlike the pirates’ group of Kaido, they didn’t directly leave the island but retreated to a high ground, where they would watch the battle. They looked at the field from a distance with a solemn expression.
Shanks’ hand had been placed on the sword handle around his waist for some time, and then he gently held the hilt.
At this moment, the atmosphere in the field became cold!
When Shanks drew his sword, an awe-inspiring sword intent rose into the sky, vast and mighty, and instantly, the white clouds that were drifting across the sky suddenly split into two!
Simultaneously, the air was heavier, and dark clouds gradually began to gather in the sky.
Perceiving Shanks’ sword intent, Naito’s eyes flashed slightly, and he reached out to grasp the void, and then gently the golden light flashed by, and the Kusanagi no Tsurugi suddenly emerged, as if Naito has drawn his sword out from the void!
The moment it appeared, Naito’s sword intent burst out and suddenly rose, and cracks appeared directly on his foothold, spreading in four directions with Naito as the center.
Seeing the sword in Naito’s hand, Shanks’ eyes lit up slightly. Although he heard about his sword, he had never seen it with his own eyes.
Under careful observation, he perceives that this sword was containing terrifying energy!
Moreover, Naito’s sword intent didn’t surprise him. Although he could tell that it wasn’t stronger than his, Naito’s sword intent seemed to be more domineering!
“What a domineering sword!”
There are also other swordmasters in Shanks’ crew. Looking at the two in the field and sensing Naito’s sword intent, they all looked surprised.
“What? It felt stronger than the captain?!” Someone couldn’t help but ask.
One of the swordsmen’s eyes flashed, and he said in a deep voice, “Although his sword intent is more domineering than the captain, he seems to be a bit weaker in terms of strength… No, he’s a whole level behind.”
Hearing these words, everyone present was slightly relieved. Although they all know that Naito used other abilities to kill Kaido and summon that meteorite, they heard that felt relieved when they heard that his swordsmanship is worse than Shanks.
At this moment, not only the crew members but also those who are watching from afar were alarmed.
Originally, after seeing Naito landing on the island, except for Haoshoku Haki’s show-off, there was no other movement, which was a bit strange.
“It’s finally… started!” Someone said.
“Will Shanks be able to continue to secure his position as one of the Yonko, or Admiral Naito will keep his undefeated streak and defeat the third Yonko?!” Someone said with evident awe in his eyes.
At this moment, on the island.
“It’s no surprise that you have such a domineering sword intent, as expected of someone who has such a strong Haoshoku Haki.”
Perceiving Naito’s sword intent, even Shanks, who fought with Mihawk once, looked amazed.
But it was no surprise because he had also experienced facing Naito’s Haoshoku Haki. The moment these thoughts flashed in his mind, Shanks took a deep breath, and suddenly clenched the sword in his hand and swung it down at Naito.
The fight finally broke out!
When the sword fell, it felt as if the world got filled with countless sharp blades everywhere.
As it continued to fall, those endless sharp blades that filled the world suddenly condensed and gathered into a line!
This was indeed the Sword Field of a master swordsman!
Although Shanks could tell that Naito’s swordsmanship didn’t reach such a high stage, facing him now, he didn’t even dare to underestimate him.
Because, even if Naito’s swordsmanship isn’t strong, Naito defeated both Big Mom and Kaido!
In the face of this man, no one in the world would dare to underestimate him!
Facing Shanks’s slash, that turned into an energy cut, tearing the ground as it took the form of a blue dragon and rushed toward Naito, he widened his eyes slightly.
It felt a lot like Mihawk’s sword, but Shanks’ sword was more like flowing water that was dripping through the stone. A blade that can cut everything in its way swiftly and fluidly.
