I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 20.1

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟐𝟎

Cheonghwa Academy’s comprehensive exam is held in a different place and in a different way each time.

However, since I know the original work, I naturally know the contents as well. The location of this 1st semester comprehensive exam is an island called Yeongwol Island near the south coast.

From now on, except for the 3rd year students who are graduating, all 1st and 2nd year students will go to the island and take a high-difficulty exam.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙨 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙡𝙨𝙤 𝙙𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙚.」

Survival games that randomly form teams, competitions that mix 1st and 2nd year students, etc. It is full of exams that are difficult to survive without skills and wisdom.

「𝘽𝙞-𝙝𝙮𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙢𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙨 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙙 𝙝𝙖𝙡𝙛 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙚𝙭𝙖𝙢.」

Therefore, until then, it was necessary to take the exam appropriately while preparing for what would happen in the future.

「𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙖 𝙥𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙖𝙨𝙨.」

Originally, Han Kang-yoon loses his life here.

Of course, it can’t be helped that it’s a very stressful place for me.

Even though there are a lot of things to worry about, I had to secure my grades in order to get promoted to the next class and qualify as an exorcist.

「𝘽𝙪𝙩 𝙄 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙙𝙤 𝙞𝙩.」

From now on, every action I take during the few days I spend on Yeongwol Island will be an important turning point in my future.

「𝙄𝙛 𝙄 𝙘𝙖𝙣’𝙩 𝙙𝙤 𝙞𝙩 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚, 𝙞𝙩 𝙢𝙚𝙖𝙣𝙨 𝙣𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜.」

I am different from the previous Han Kang-yoon. I will live a different life.

There were still some things that were a bit difficult, but almost all the preparations were complete. I made up my mind once again.

「. . . . . . .」

In front of me, where I clenched my fist, a huge island covered with greenery began to appear.

It was Yeongwol Island.

🔷🔷🔷🔷🔷🔷

“The first exam will be held in 1 hour. Until then, you can take a break or do personal grooming.”

A tough-looking woman with long hair in a braid opened her mouth. It was teacher Kwak Eun-jin, who was in charge of Class D, 2nd year.

At Kwak Eun-jin’s words, the students showed their expressions.

“I expected it, but it starts right away. . . . . . .”

“What about a dormitory? . . . . . . . ?”

“Of course not. This isn’t a trip.”

Cheonghwa Academy’s comprehensive exams were particularly notorious. During the exam, you have to figure out sleep and food on your own, and the exam continues even then.

There is no time to rest easy, and there is no place to feel at ease. In a word, it meant that an environment very close to actual combat was created from now on.

“Ha, I thought I was going to die in my first year.”

“This time, the place is too big. This whole place is the exam site?”

“Is it like a battle royale?”

The students groaned and began preparing for the exam.

Check supplies, roughly grasp the surrounding terrain, and lay the foundation for strategy.

I also called one shikigami from the shadow to explore the surroundings in advance.

“Black Bird”

Pwah-ak.

Flap!

A black bird that is larger than a crow but smaller than an eagle.

It was a shikigami that I created along with Fierce Wolf, Bone Bear, and Earthbound during the vacation. Until now, I hadn’t taken it out because I didn’t have anything to use it for.

「𝘽𝙪𝙩 𝙞𝙩’𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙢𝙤𝙨𝙩 𝙪𝙨𝙚𝙛𝙪𝙡 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚.」

Basically, the area of the test site is so vast. It was an indispensable shikigami to grasp the surrounding situation.

“Go.”

『Squeak.』

Flutter!

Black Bird flapped its wings vigorously and disappeared beyond the sky.

There were still two more of the same species left in the shadows, but one was enough for now.

While I was exploring the terrain with a spell that shared my field of vision, someone approached me. It was Cheong Juhwa.

“It’s always a strange spell. How many do you put in there?”

I had shown it a few times in one-on-one exchange classes, but it seemed that the shikigami technique I was using was still interesting.

“Just enough to use it properly. Everyone else is about the same.”

“I was curious and looked it up after seeing it for the first time, but there wasn’t anyone who used it as a medium for shadows?”

“There is.”

“I don’t see it. . . . . . .”

Perhaps if you look closely, it will exist. Of course, it wouldn’t be a case where I use it as extensively as I do.

I looked around and asked Cheong Juhwa.

“Isn’t your class a little further west from here?”

“Yes. It’s about a 5-minute walk.”

That means they actually intentionally placed the start line nearby.

I thought of the first assignment of the 1st semester comprehensive exam and immediately hardened my expression.

「𝙄 𝙜𝙪𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙄’𝙡𝙡 𝙘𝙡𝙖𝙨𝙝 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝘾𝙡𝙖𝙨𝙨 𝘽, 1𝙨𝙩 𝙮𝙚𝙖𝙧.」

The first exam is a team mission.

The name is none other than class competition.

It was quite a harsh test for us, Class D.

“It’s about to start, shouldn’t we go and get ready?”

“I don’t like the awkward atmosphere. I don’t really want to do anything with that guy.”

Come to think of it, Class B, 1st year, is in a state of blurred cohesion among themselves due to Cheong Haram’s influence.

“I wish I could go to Class A quickly.”

Cheong Juhwa grumbled and walked away towards her classmates.

I looked at Cheong Juhwa like that and thought.

「𝙃𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙡𝙮, 𝙞𝙩’𝙨 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙝 𝙖 𝙩𝙧𝙮 𝙞𝙛 𝙞𝙩’𝙨 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩.」

B and D. If it was the same grade, it wouldn’t have been an opponent.

However, since they are different grades, the one-year experience difference cannot be ignored.

In addition, Class B, 1st year, is currently in a situation where they do not match each other compared to other places.

At least, the probability of an overwhelmingly unfavorable situation was low.

「𝙄𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙡 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙠, 𝙞𝙩 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙘𝙚𝙚𝙙𝙚𝙙 𝙘𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙙 𝙤𝙣 𝘾𝙡𝙖𝙨𝙨 𝘼, 1𝙨𝙩 𝙮𝙚𝙖𝙧, 𝙨𝙤 𝙄 𝙙𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙧𝙚𝙢𝙚𝙢𝙗𝙚𝙧 𝙝𝙤𝙬 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚 𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙣𝙚𝙙 𝙤𝙪𝙩.」
