BTOG 208 – Nanaka’s Serious Mode.

Nanaka Futayado is the strongest.

It is not a metaphor, nor is it a compliment.

In everything that can be called physical ability, she surpasses all other living creatures on earth.

As a creature, she is out of the standard in every way.

That is Nanaka. A monster who was born in the wrong world.

In the back of Nanaka’s memories, there’s only one time where she used all her power. That was when she was 15 years old, or more precisely, it was just before the death of her parents.

In terms of physical ability alone, today’s Nanaka incomparably stronger than she was.

Nanaka’s body does not decline and is constantly growing. Even though her appearance has not changed at all, every cell is constantly evolving.

And what’s more, she has learned how to remove her limiter and is now able to release her abilities that she has unconsciously kept locked away since childhood.

Current Nanaka is definitely in her prime, both physically and mentally.

Nanaka secretly thought. If it were today’s herself, surely, she would be able to save her parents, whom she was unable to save that day. Or perhaps, she would be able to detect the crisis even before it happened.

Still, when asked when she was the “strongest”, Nanaka will immediately answer that it was when she was 15 years old.

This is because at that time, Nanaka was [What Rinne wanted her to be].

The trauma Nanaka had for hurting her mother stays ever since she was two years old. The trauma of hurting her loved ones with her own hand was engraved deep in her heart.

The feeling of her mother’s flesh being crushed, the temperature of the blood that flew out, the kindness of her mother who worried about Nanaka without minding the excruciating pain.

It was a bitter memory that Nanaka could not forget. She also thinks that it is a memory that should not be forgotten.

Originally, Nanaka’s growth should have stopped after that day.

Both her body and her mind. At best, she has grown taller, but other than that, all her aspect has stopped growing at all.

It’s all for the sake of not destroying her mother, father, and the world.

But then Nanaka met Rinne.

Nanaka wanted to [Rin-chan’s warmth] and decided to protect her.

And Rinne also wished for [Nana] to be her forever best friend and the strongest hero.

Nanaka the monster became the strongest because Rinne wished her to be.

Nanaka did something based on that one principle.

From the day they first met, from the day Rinne held Nanaka’s hand.

Even if there is a distance between us.

Even if the distance was long enough so they cannot touch each other.

Everything Nanaka does is always for Rinne Takajou.

That’s why.

If Rinne wants her to be the strongest, so be it.

If Rinne wishes for Nanaka to show the qualifications to stand next to her.

If Rinne want Nanaka to show the world the power that she has never shown before.

[Then I will show it with all my might.]

Regardless of whether it’s in-game, reality, or any other.

Nanaka will show that Rinne’s best friend is the [strongest].

Bouncing lightly on the spot to relax, Nanaka looked around leisurely.

[Bari Bari Health-kun No. 12] There were a lot of strange things about it, like how there were 11 different machines before it or how such a big machine was needed to do a mere health measurement.

At the very least, it is much larger than the three-tatami room Nanaka was living in just a short time ago. It is large enough to live in if you put a futon on the floor.

(It certainly looks like it would be no problem to move around a little inside.)

[Bari Bari Health Kun No. 12], which also has a punching machine function, is said to be equipped with the latest fitness games as well.

(I don’t know if there are people who would install such a machine just to play games, but as ……MC said it is not just a health measuring machine. It also has some fun elements in it.)

“Nana, are you ready?”

“Yes.”

That’s the MC voice; who was it again? Nanaka thought. She had already forgotten her name, but she remembered that it was something like Mike or Michael. Yet, she answers the question by wiggling her hands.

Although Nanaka was the first to be approached in the commentary section, she was the last in order to punch the machine.

This was because Nanaka bet assigned there by Rinne. As simple as that. But regardless of the reason, she was honestly grateful to be last.

“HERE. WE. GO! NANA! She had replied with a very ambitious spirit while claiming that she would get the first place! How good is she really? Does your seemingly slender body actually contain tremendous power!?”

“Maybe she’s a skinny type.”

“I see. It’s quite possible!”

Rinne assigned her there because her so-so looking and power will contradict each other.

For better or for worse, in addition to being stuck like a sore thumb, coupled with the bold declaration of [I’ll take first place], has drawn the attention of all eyes to Nanaka’s every move.

Incidentally, [Bari Bari Health-kun No. 12] is equipped with a camera to monitor patients’ movements inside, and it was the monitor showing it that the audience was looking at.

(Well, what shall we do now?)

Aside from the MC outside enlivening the venue, Nanaka was troubled by the cushion in front of her.

Rather than a punching machine… it’s more like a mattress to measure the power when it’s struck. It had such a rugged appearance that they just stuck a bed into the wall and left it as it is.

This cushion was said to be a new technology. It will absorb the impact of a punch as much as possible and protects the player from damage caused by the recoil of the punch. That was indeed one of the reasons why there are no injuries to the macho men so far, and it will measure the punching power then calculate it as a score.

By the way, the standard score for an ordinary man who does no particular exercise is about 150 points.

For men, a score of over 200 is considered moderately strong, over 300 is quite good, and if you score over 400 points, you’ve got enough power to earn a living that way, or so MC Sebas said.

It seems that normally it will be quite difficult to exceed 400 points, and even among the muscular pro gamers, only a few were able to exceed 400 points. Only three of them, to be exact.

One of them had a punch power of more than 700 points and was already the winner in everyone’s mind.

However, the reason why Nanaka is worried is not about whether she can get the first place or not, or something as trivial as that.

(I can break this, can’t I?)

It was a reason that was, strangely enough, fit her.

 (It’s easy to break it. I mean, if I really try to, I will definitely break it. Well, thankfully, my turn is the last, so I guess it doesn’t matter for the event if it broke…)

While wearing gloves to protect her hands from the impact of the punch, Nanaka measured rather seriously how far she was allowed to go.

Nanaka’s [Serious Mode] is not something so naive to care about something trivial, such as saying that her score can theoretically be comparable to a car crash or that the maximum score is 9999 points.

If Nanaka really didn’t pull her punch, this thing will break.

Should she think about the future, there will be a big problem with her image after she does that, but Nanaka didn’t even consider that right now.

No, Rinne had pushed her enough beforehand, so she did not even have to consider it.

(Rin-chan said I could really do it. In other words, it should be within the scope of her prediction where I break this. Still, I think it would be a little tasteless to just destroy it.)

Nanaka want to live up to Rinne’s expectations. Nanaka wants her to see how serious she is.

Such reasoning has made Nanaka completely remove the limiter inside her.

Until a few minutes ago, she was worried about whether it was okay to break it, but before she knew it, she was now pondering about how to break it.

(Yeah, okay, I’ve made up my mind.)

That said, Nanaka’s turn was in progress, and there was no room to drag this on.

Therefore, let’s keep it simple.

A simple proof of power.

“Will you take the first place as you declared? Or maybe you’ll show us some pretty punches! Now then, Nana! You’re allowed two punches, so please get fired up!”

“Understood…”

Nanaka trackback her memory to the day when she removed all her limiters inside the game.

An irrepressible sense of freedom. A sense of omnipotence, as if everything is under her control.

Remembering that feeling, for the first time in her life, she removes the limiter of [power] from her entire body.

Not only the portion that Nanaka consciously suppresses but everything, even the unconscious part of it.

As a result, nothing has changed dramatically for Nanaka.

Unlike when she expanded her perceptual range, she only felt that the dullness of her whole body had gone.

However.

For all the other creatures present in this site.

Something was triggering their fear instinct, and just for a moment, they were shown the true face of a monster.

“Fuu…”

Nanaka gripped her hand to make sure.

The glove was already torn by the immense grip as she held it, but she dismissed it as inevitable.

Then she chose the image of that day, the day where she put Hisui in her place.

There’s no need for techniques or fancy skills.

Step in and strike. That’s it.

“se–no!!”

Her voice was light and gentle.

But…

CLANG!!

Her foot that stepped on the ground pierced it and produced a loud sound.

The video could not show the moment when Nanaka released the punch.

All it could show was Nanaka’s blurred image. Then everyone saw that Nanaka had released her fist, and the LCD displaying the score had reached a beautiful 9999.

It was just a moment, a moment too short even to blink.

It was as if time had stopped, and everyone present felt the coldness of the silence that filled the hall.

Ding!

A heavy shock traveled through the venue.

Nanaka’s fist easily broke through the cushions, pierced the steel walls, and crushed the interior of [Baribari Health-kun No. 12].

The whisper from the MC’s microphone slowly turned into a powerful roar and finally became a howl that resounded throughout the hall.
