WMW Chapter 623

Trial and Destruction

A Magus created spells by using his spiritual force to draw the energy particles in the air. The current Leylin could cause a mysterious change with just a spoken rune syllable and the injection of spiritual force.

A ball of flames formed in front of Leylin and a huge wall of fire spread out, blocking the white light.

The figures that were armoured in black could only see a huge amount of flames appearing out of thin air to collide with the laser. The teen himself was still safe and sound.

*Plop!* An armoured man loosened his grip and dropped his laser gun. A peculiar scene such as this was still a first for them despite their years of war experience and the gory training they’d undergone.

“Mutants!” The leader cried.

“Mutants? Is this what your world calls people with mysterious powers?” Leylin laughed and placed his hands behind his back, sizing up his surroundings with a sense of nostalgia. ‘Is this a dream? Or a world generated from my memories? Though there are many similarities to my previous world, there are still quite a few differences…’

“Our target is her, you can leave!” The leader said in a low voice. Being one of the few higher-ups that knew of the existence of Mutants, how could he not be afraid of Leylin’s abilities?

“Scram!” But Leylin only looked at them apathetically as if he was looking at prey.

“You-” The leader’s face flushed with anger.

He pulled out a glimmering ring from his waist.

“Magnetic Hybrid Storm No. 2! This is specially created to counter weapons created by Mutants! If you are to leave now, we will treat it as nothing happened.”

“Hm, interesting!” The ring disappeared from the leader’s hand in an instant and showed up in Leylin’s.

“Spatial power? Or high-speed movement?” Cold sweat gathered on the leader’s forehead.

“How ignorant and stupid!” Leylin looked at them sympathetically and colour drained from the leader’s face.

This was a Mutant who allowed him no chance of resistance and who could snatch the weapon from his hand in seconds. Leylin was definitely someone beyond what he could handle, and it was highly possible for his whole team would die here!

“We have to leave quickly!” The leader shouted as a mini laser gun appeared in his hand. He aimed several fatal beams at Leylin.

*Pew!* All the laser rays were blocked by a golden curtain before flames burst forth.

The massive flames illuminated the surroundings with a fiery red glow, the last sight this leader would see before he left the world.

Carol stood rooted to the ground, suddenly realising that the Leylin in front of her was very much different from the Leylin she knew. He seemed a lot more confident and exuded a monstrous aura. Although she thought of things such as power and aura as a joke, she learnt then that there was true power in this world.

Just a mere flash of red light could turn those threatening enemies into ashes. If someone with such power wasn’t greater than the rest, who was?

“You are Carol, right?” In front of her stood the person she was familiar with speaking with a voice she was familiar with, but she couldn’t help but move back.

“Who are you? Don’t come near me! Where is Leylin?” Tears gathered in the girl’s eyes. She wanted to leave this person, but an invisible force brought her in front of him.

“Are you the focal point in this world?” Leylin smiled gently at her and began to say things that made her mind spin. “Through the allure of choices presented to me and tricking me into making decisions through emotions, my truesoul will forever be confined in this makeshift world huh?”

Carol knew the meaning of each individual word Leylin was saying but was confused at their intended meaning.

“Seems like someone’s been targeting me…” Leylin touched his chin, “A.I. Chip, how do I get out?”

[Beep! Host body affected by unknown radiation, truesoul at a loss.] [Beep! Fog appeared in host’s sea of consciousness, affecting cognitive abilities. Beginning projection of guiding coordinates…]

The A.I. Chip’s reply came instantly this time, accompanied with numerous status updates.

The A.I. Chip was fused with leylin’s very soul. No matter where he went, his truesoul’s survival meant the A.I. Chip’s survival. Enemies stood a chance of intercepting this connection for a short while, but they couldn’t break it.

The A.I. Chip was continuously trying to awaken Leylin’s truesoul. This was also why he was so quick to see through the hazy world so quickly.

“A.I. Chip, begin scan. The target is this entire world.” Leylin commanded.

[Beep! Mission established, scan beginning…] With the update after his advancement to Radiant Moon, the changes were not merely cosmetic. The Chip’s various functions had been updated as well.

[Scanning 3D structure! Instability detected! Absence of plane curves, concluded as unstable world!] [Curse detected. Concluded as dream curse.]

The A.I. Chip responded quickly.

“As expected, someone dragged me into a trance with a curse… “ Leylin’s face slowly warped as he read through the data.

“In order to break out of this trance, we have to start from the ‘key’ of this world and then neutralise the counterattack!” Leylin came to Carol.

“W-What do you want? Don’t come near me!” Carol moved backwards in fear, but Leylin maintained his poker face and pointed a finger at her forehead.

*Boom!* The world shook, and Carol fell down.

Though she had yet to die, Leylin could feel the connection between her and some form of entity weakening.

“Carol is only a shell, the counterattack should be coming soon after I’m done dealing with the ‘key’!” Leylin said, floating in mid-air as the very space vibrated.

“Gail, look! That person over there, he looks like Leylin!” Serway’s jaw dropped.

“It, it really is him! Did he become a superhero?” Gail ruffled her hair and seemed to be a little dizzy. Had her useless brother been pretending all along, hiding a secret life as a superhero? Was he one of those who secretly guarding the world’s peace?

A piercing anti-aircraft alarm sounded, and violet light filled the entire city. A large number of UFOs surrounded the area, armoured men flying out from within. Complex energy circuits flashed from on their armours, that worn by the troops from before complete trash in comparison.

These people with peculiar energy undulations should’ve been the Mutants that the leader of those troops was talking about. They looked pretty advanced.

“UFOs… Is this the extraterrestrial colonisation fleet of the federation? God!” Many students and passersby started screaming on the ground. The few figures in front especially made them feel like they were suffocating just by looking at them.

Delusion and reality, illusion and mystery, things that only existed in conjectures, were all suddenly appearing front of everyone’s eyes, giving them a strong sense of intangibility.

A ray of blue light scanned over Leylin’s body, and the scanned data flashed across the glasses of the person leading the troop. It was like he instantly knew Leylin’s identity.

“Leylin, year 3 student of Innocent Saints High School… How dare you use your powers carelessly in public as a Mutant? Return with us to the headquarters to receive your punishment!”

“Well…” Leylin shook his head and sighed, “Why weren’t you here before when we were being attacked? And now you come over with such speed when everything’s solved? I protest!” The mocking tone in Leylin’s voice caused the person to furrow his brows. He decided to teach a good lesson to the arrogant young man in front of him.

“Who do you think you are? The headquarters only take actions against our own kind; humans are exempted. Prepare to be tried for your crimes!”

The troop leader waved his hand, and two figures ran towards Leylin.

“Hmm… As expected, weakness is a sin no matter what world you’re in.” Leylin sighed, and frenzied energy undulations burst forth from his body.

*Whoosh!* Huge clouds of smog wrapped around two Mutants. The sound of blood dripping was heard, and when the smog cleared, a few damaged bones and metal components fell down. The two people were nowhere to be seen.

*Boom!* The glasses of the leader’s eyes exploded, the scratches from the shrapnel forming blood red lines across his face. Yet, he didn’t seem to care at all, only glaring at Leylin as he muttered in disbelief, “Silvan-ranked! He is a Silvan-ranked Mutant!”

Many of them took a step back, as if realising they’d been surrounding a monster all this while.

Mutant of the Silvan-ranked is the highest of all the levels as of current times. They only existed in rumours, and were strong enough to cause energy probes to blow up!

The thought of going against someone of this standard made many of the troop members shudder.

“If the situation is as such, your Grace, shall we…” The leader clenched his teeth and walked forward, but Leylin did not want to waste any more time on them.

“What a group of clowns. The counter-measures of this world are weak, so weak that I’m disappointed!” A tiny black orb appeared on his finger, and he flicked it forward.

“You lot haven’t seen real strength! The pitch-black orb absorbed all light, causing space itself to collapse.

The terrifying turbulence enveloped all the UFOs and enemies.

    1. Honestly Urahara…. It is just cos in terms of pacing Icy World story arc was damned near perfect, tonnes of action, storyline and dense prose. I think or at least hope that this curse, which appeared suddenly will be resolved this chapter and move into a sudden confrontation with the 3 Radiant Moon Magi. I do agree though, this curse should have been 1-2 chapters at the most. The curse nature is so bizarre that coming off of icyworld, if the curse was three chapters 1 as a prelude, that somewhat teased at the nature of the curse and had the magi setup some kind of strange ritual or something and 2 more as the actual curse events it would be pretty damned good… But it is what it is, it should hopefully end soon, parts of it like Leylin struggling against the nature of a reality being forced on him are good… But the curse setting itself is so bad that these chapters seem somewhat lackluster, a small bump though in a largely very compelling story….

      If you think this is bad you should try Against The Gods as a comparison, and read these chapters surrounding ‘the devil sword conference’ they are shockingly bad. Light Novels are huge storylines told in pieces, it is not surprising that they have less appealing parts in the entire collection of their chapters.

      1. u make really good points i guess the hype was too high when he advanced to rank 5 and the hype just dropped to zero all of a sudden. I did read against the gods and dropped it 9 chapters in because I could literally summarize those 9 chapters into a paragraph or two

        1. Why would Yun Che go to devil’s conference ? (originally curiousity and of course he would love nothing more than to risk his own and Jasmine’s life)
          Can Yun Che rescue Xiao Yun ? (the carbon copy of useless Xia Yunaba heart of gold non entity character….)
          What of Fen JeuChen what move will he make ? (the emo tard everyone wants dead… that won’t die oh boi i can hardly wait… I can hardly wait to see him get another chub over Xiao Lingxi to… with her brother fen fetish….)
          What of the devil sword ? (you mean the devil sword everyone is assuming is 75% likely to end up as Hong’ir’s lunch at some point)
          What of the mysterious whirlpool ? (you mean the obvious plot device to send either seperate Jasmine or Yun Che or seperate Jasmine and Yun Che from Sky Profound Continent)

          The cringe worthiness of the devil sword arc is just unf**kinbelievable… even still I loved or liked every other storyline so I will stick with it… the hyperbole in ATG is epic…. watching people froth at the mouth going “How is this kid suck a f**kin God?” and Yun Che replying “I am YunChe and I am Mighty” in some other innumerated exacerbated forms….

          I think I know where WMW author is going though, this Carol curse master/tracker after this she will probably take a hit with backlash leaving the other two. The other subordinate will probably be a bio-enhancer a new type of foe for Yun Che to personally deal with…. The other the BOSS will be the radiant moon who clashed with the elders of the ororborous clan donkeys years ago… This guy will probably be a mid-ranked radiant moon previously a lower ranked when he faced the elders… If you get a Radiant Moon Bloodline Metamorphosis all the while watching this guy froth at the mouth and completely lose his shit before he meets a miserable end you must forgive this nonsense curse….

          For at that point Leylin’s God Mode can claim to beat the enemy 3 elders could only fight to a stalemate while he was weaker, in addition to claiming the lives of 2 other radiant moon in addition. All the while his devouring skill will allow him to get an upgrade from any whom he successfully kills with it… I am a pleb donator so I can’t be sure it will go down like this 100% but this whole thing of radiant moon magi smacks of the same kind of powerups the author used for rank 1 magi semi-converted mage, peak rank 1 mage etc….

          1. Well, at least this chapter will be worth it when he realized something is wrong and start casting spells in a normal human world and kill these people like ants. Have always imagined what would happen if Leylin was able to travel to a world like his previous world but not as advanced like our world when the astral gate was introduced. Now we get to see what he would do as a citizen of the future and a powerful warlock.

    2. We are halfway through so it slows down just a little but dont worry it will pick up but have to say two chapters in and peoplw are already making noise about how this does not make sense and shit just wait a few more chapters will ya jezz desolate era has chapter where the author builds the world i dont see anyone complaining there if u want action or tournement arc go re read atg where every arc has tournament

    1. May god have mercy on your soul…
      legionsama – Unknown-15/05/2017 “He was always desperate for more, *sniffle* He just couldn’t stop himself in the end.”
      Rest in Peace, legionsama, you will be missed.

    1. Yes good arcs need buildup, that doesn’t mean the buildup has to be garbage like the last couple chapters.

      That being said like other commentators have mentioned if you compare this to to other novels like atg… it becomes a very bearable couple of chapters 😀

    2. A good arc needs buildup? But this little deviation from the main plot had literally no buildup at all. Right at the end of one chapter some random dude randomly said he’d made some progress on his curses. Nothing more. Then in literally the very first paragraph of the very next chapter he’s already been cursed and is in a completely unexplained new world… I’d rather not have buildup if this is what it looks like.

    1. Yeah! This team already has the chapter release figured out. This unfortunate event really is miserable. I hope that thief’s soul would be the wick of Leylin’s eternal lamp.

      1. Who says this is his previous world? From the teaser

        ““Mutants? Is this what your world calls people with mysterious powers?” Leylin laughed and placed his hands behind his back, sizing up his surroundings with a sense of nostalgia. ‘Is this a dream? Or a world generated from my memories? Though there are many similarities to my previous world, there are still quite a few differences…’”

        He says himself there are quite a few differences. We know all we need to know about Leylin’s world. It was basically earth but in the future where technology advanced to a high degree.

      1. Both are omega level mutants able to basically cause damage similar to a nuclear bomb. Although omega is just a title for really powerful like how Matthew Malloy was able to warp reality but was still labelled omega.

    1. X and magneto are class 4 mutants I believe. With Phoenix being the only class 5 we know of. At least who lives on earth. 4 = morning star? Although in reality both of them are strong enough to destroy the world if they wanted.

  1. I feel so lost right now. This arc feels like the equivalent of a dream sequence with the ending just as unfulfilling. (It was all a dream! Or a soul attack! Or whatever the author has come up with which make sure the last few chapters you read serve no real purpose!)

    None of this is to disparage the translator who is doing a good job.

    1. One of the best points of this novel is that it is well constructed and the autor take his time to raise the protagonist, that also means that he doesn’t jump from part to part without no reason. Leilin is now in some kind of ilusión so it is needed to show us what kind o ilusion he is and how to break it. It woulg be boring if Leilin fighting 3 Radiant moons just appear and the next moment it just happened that he has already kicked their ass.

  2. I’ll be looking forward to that curse breaking now…. X-Men is just too far… If you don’t want to sent leylin to his old world, or give us true memories that is fine… This Disney come Pop Culture Acid Trip, contract curse is just needing to end right about now…

  3. Ooh this dream seems rather interesting too!
    X-MEN are probably as strong as acolytes or rank 1 magi only!

  4. I’d rather have this then the jumping around for god knows why and multiple unexplained power-ups in order to excuse a character who shouldn’t have been able to do a certain feat. Leylin grows and is constantly learning there is a logical progression. He has to struggle and doesn’t just constantly smack the faces of every person who looks at him the wrong way. He bows his head when he needs to and returns disrespect at an appropriate time(not immediately and against the most powerful person in the room). WMW is by no means a perfect novel but the way the story is written is one I’d like other novels to take a page out of.

  5. Really am awaiting an explanation on how the *** Carol pulled Leylin into a new “world”, it was mentioned to be a “dreamscape” then how the *** can it at the same time be a world? *** confusing statements in the chapter ffs, eitehr it’s an illusionary dreamscape, OR she pulled him into a pocketdimension that she somehow controlls, which imo is highly unlikely due to Leylins strength of the Soul.

    The past 3 chapters have been highly unreasonable when it comes to WMW logic unless im missing something here. (“[Scanning 3D structure! Instability detected! Absence of plane curves, concluded as unstable world!] [Curse detected. Concluded as dream curse.] “) <— Both an "unstable world" and a "Curse Dream" …..which is it…make some sense ffs.

  6. *Boom!* The glasses of the leader’s eyes exploded, the scratches from the shrapnel forming blood red lines across his face. Yet, he didn’t seem to care at all, only glaring at Leylin as he muttered in disbelief, “Silvan-ranked! He is a Silvan-ranked Mutant!”

    It’s over 9000!!!!
