I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 36.1

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟑𝟔

“Kuaak!”

Kuung!

The Cow Headed Demon, who was aiming for Cheong Juhwa, was engulfed in intense flames and fell to the ground.

Judging from its traits, I could tell that it was a pretty tough type. One hit probably wouldn’t do much damage.

But I wasn’t worried.

「𝙎𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩.」

Tiling.

Right now, I had one more reliable shikigami, after the contract I had just made.

“I thought I was going to die.”

“Sorry. Thanks to you buying me some time, I lived.”

Cheong Juhwa grumbled softly, pouting her lips, and then she changed it to a small smile.

“. . .Thank you for coming.”

There was a sincerity in those words that I couldn’t quite explain. I felt a little embarrassed and turned my head away as I replied.

“We’re a team.”

That was enough. Cheong Juhwa nodded and released her spell, coming down to the ground.

Swish.

Clang.

“So, do you have any energy?”

“Enough to subdue it.”

Honestly, I wasn’t in the best condition either, but fortunately, I was less worried because I had obtained the trait I was aiming for.

「𝙀𝙫𝙚𝙣 𝙞𝙛 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙢𝙚𝙚𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨, 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙗𝙖𝙗𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮 𝙤𝙛 𝙖𝙘𝙦𝙪𝙞𝙨𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙞𝙨 𝙛𝙞𝙛𝙩𝙮-𝙛𝙞𝙛𝙩𝙮.」

I guess I was pretty lucky.

I felt hundreds of thousands of souls deep inside me, and I burned some of them of my own free will.

Hwarruk.

Hwarruk.

As a result, a certain amount of spiritual power began to surge from within my body due to the effect of the trait.

Huung,

“. . .Wow. What is that?”

“Trade secret.”

I answered briefly and stared at the Cow Headed Demon, who had come to its senses in front of me and was growling.

“Priest. Hold on, I won’t let you. Fire Ghost, eat.”

One of the traits I had seen in the Cow Headed Demon’s status window earlier was cannibalism. Looking at that, it was clear what it was aiming for.

「𝙄𝙩 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙗𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙮 𝙘𝙖𝙢𝙚 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙝𝙪𝙣𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙁𝙞𝙧𝙚 𝘿𝙚𝙢𝙤𝙣 𝙖𝙩 𝙛𝙞𝙧𝙨𝙩.」

It just so happened that we were in the middle of a battle with his prey, so it got angry and attacked us right away.

Pushiik.

Once again, the Cow Headed Demon’s body swelled and began to turn red.

I know that too. It’s the effect of the B-rank trait, Berserk.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙬𝙖𝙮 𝙩𝙤 𝙗𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙠 𝘽𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙚𝙧𝙠 𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙞𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚.」

Just don’t get hit. If some time passes, the duration of the trait will end and it will naturally become exhausted.

However, the terrain was too narrow to avoid damage. So I had to properly use spells to control the Cow Headed Demon’s movements.

Swoosh.

Thud!

I concentrated my spiritual power and pulled out a few talismans from my bosom and sent them flying in all directions.

Tiling.

【Cow Headed Demon】

▶Level 44

【Stamina: B+】

【Magical Power: C+】

【Spellcraft: D-】

【Mental Strength: C-】

As you can see, the Cow Headed Demon has low mental strength and spellcasting ability scores compared to its high physical abilities.

I’ve dealt with this type before until they get tired.

In the current situation, the most effective means against a yokai like the Cow Headed Demon was the illusionary realm spell.

Cheoreok.

“Illusionary Dream,”

Puhwaak.

Slowly.

As I formed the hand seal and activated the spell, a strange colored fog quickly filled about half of the cave.

“K, uh.”

The Cow Headed Demon groaned, clutching its head as if it was dizzy, but it didn’t seem to be caught in the illusion yet.

「𝘼𝙨 𝙚𝙭𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙙, 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙡𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙡 𝙤𝙛 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙡𝙡 𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙖𝙩 𝘽-𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙠.」

But it was within my expectations. I drew on my spiritual power once more and cast a special technique that was frequently used in the second installment of Exorcism.

“Spell Amplification, Five Elements Progression.”

I changed the spell structure of the already deployed Illusionary Dream, making the interior of the barrier even more complex and confusing.

At this level, the Cow Headed Demon, who had low-rank spells and mental strength, would probably not be able to easily find a way out.

Bwoong!

Bwooong!

Kwaang─!

“You little pests. I’ll eat you all.”

The Cow Headed Demon, completely caught in the illusion, began to pound the floor and walls of the cave with great force.

Kugugug.

As a result, vibrations occurred and piles of dirt fell from all sides. Cheong Juhwa, who was running away with us, spoke to me with an anxious face.

“Isn’t this dangerous?”

“. . .I guess we need to clean this up quickly.”

I wasn’t just talking big.

I had already calculated all the situations.

The duration of Berserk is exactly 5 minutes.

Since it had already activated the trait before I arrived, the effect will probably end soon and the side effects will come.

Kwaang.

“Where are you? Come out!”

Sure enough, the Cow Headed Demon, who had been rampaging all over the place, began to slow down and its body returned to its original size.

Now was the time to deal with it.

“Attack on my signal. Full power.”

At my instruction, the Fire Demon nodded with a blank expression.

Thud.

“Art of Yin-Yang and Five Elements. Fire.”
