The parent led the child over to the door of light with a confused expression, and the door seemed to be releasing some type of profound force of attraction, urging him to step into it almost in an involuntary manner.
As soon as they strode into the door, they immediately disappeared, and the young man explained, "Those who we deem to be especially talented must go through that door to a special registration area. That place is similar to our Spirit Pagoda's Myriad Beast Plane, so there's no need to be concerned. Alright, next."
Thus, everything continued to move along.
The reporters were naturally able to see what was happening, but they also thought that this had been organized by the Spirit Pagoda. After all, none of the employees from the Spirit Pagoda were saying anything.
Registration was also under way for Shrek Academy, and even though the benefits offered by Spirit Academy were very alluring, Shrek Academy was still the legendary number one academy on the continent, and many parents, especially those who were Shrek Academy alumni themselves, were still full of reverence for this sacred institution.
Even though Shrek Academy had been destroyed, not a single student had perished despite the godslayer missiles that had been unleashed; how could one not trust an academy like this?
As such, even though there were less registrants at Shrek Academy, the overall quality was still higher than the registrants at Spirit Academy. Spirit Academy was doing its best to sway people over to their side, but their efforts weren't bearing much fruit.
In Spirit Academy.
"Principal, our sources tell us that there are still a lot of registrants at Shrek Academy, and our scouts say that they've seen at least four registrants with soul power in excess of rank 20."
Qiangu Zhangting's brows immediately furrowed upon hearing this. "Are these people idiots? What's so good about Shrek Academy? They won't even get soul spirits in the future."
The employee didn't respond. In reality, everyone knew that the reputation Shrek Academy had forged itself over the span of 20,000 years couldn't be erased in a short time.
No matter what Spirit Academy did, it was unrealistic to expect everyone to turn on Shrek Academy.
"Should we take some other measures?" the employee asked in a low voice.
A cold light flashed through Qiangu Zhangting's eyes as he instructed, "Send them out; let's see how Shrek Academy deals with them. They want to collaborate with us, so they'll have to put in some work. Keep a close eye on the situation; make sure to constantly cause problems for Shrek Academy."
Shortly thereafter, a group of around a dozen mechas suddenly detached itself from the rest of the 300 mechas and flew toward Shrek Academy.
A voice then rang out across the entirety of Shrek Academy through the use of a voice amplifier.
"I heard that Shrek Academy's enrolment day is today, and that you also have a mecha department; are there any divine-grade mecha pilots among your ranks? I am divine-grade mecha pilot Meng Te, the vice-principal of Spirit Academy's mecha division, and I've come to pay your academy a visit."
A red mecha shot forth through the air as the voice rang out, and it reached Shrek Academy like a bolt of rapid red lightning, performing a few highly difficult aerobatic tricks during its flight.
Under the radiance of the sun, the red mecha looked as if it had sprung to life, and it was giving off an extremely overbearing aura. All of the registrants down below looked up in unison, and right at this moment, a vast expanse of purplish-blue light suddenly appeared right above Shrek Academy's main school building.
The purplish-blue light had appeared very abruptly, and it was like a massive net.
The red mecha was tangled up in the net of light, and a string of cracks and pops rang out, following which the once-majestic red mecha suddenly plummeted into Shrek Academy with sparks flashing all over its surface.
It was as if... the red mecha were a fly that had just been struck by an electric fly swatter.
An authoritative voice then rang out from within Shrek Academy: "The airspace of Shrek Academy is not to be encroached upon."
The other mechas were speeding toward Shrek Academy in an overbearing manner, and all of them immediately halted in mid-air, while the mecha pilots were all stunned by what they had just seen.
That was a divine-grade mecha! How had it suddenly been struck down? Surely even a Limit Douluo wouldn't be able to strike down a divine-grade mecha in an instant! What had just happened?
"How dare you, Shrek Academy!" An enraged voice rang out from another red mecha.
"Release Meng Te at once!"
The rest of the 300 mechas immediately flew toward Shrek Academy in a menacing fashion in the wake of this sudden turn of events.
Shrek Academy had made a resounding statement by striking down a red mecha so easily.
Who would dare to approach the academy after seeing that? If a yellow or purple mecha had been in the red mecha's place, wouldn't it have completely exploded?
As such, not even a single mecha dared to approach Shrek Academy's main school building, and all of the prospective students and their parents were left completely dumbstruck.
That was so badass!
They had also been concerned that the rebuilt Shrek Academy wouldn't be as powerful as it once was, but it seemed that this preconceived notion may be incorrect.
That was a divine-grade mecha! On the battlefield, a divine-grade mecha could transform the complexion of an entire battle on its own.
However, such an almighty mecha had been instantly struck down without being able to offer any resistance; what type of attack could've achieved something like this?
One had to realize that that net of purplish-blue light had encompassed quite a large area! With such incredible defenses, Shrek Academy was surely going to be an impregnable fortress!
This was a product of the Tang Sect's technological prowess. Zang Xin had once told Tang Wulin that the Tang Sect had recently just completed development on a super soul array defense system, and this system was the product of countless generations of effort and research.
The system had initially been designed with the intended purpose of being used on spaceships for space exploration, not for the Tang Sect or Shrek Academy.
No one knew what outer space was like, so it was imperative to have a powerful defense system. As such, this defense system was meant to be used on the federation's aircraft carriers as an initial experiment, but after the destruction of Shrek City, all of those plans naturally changed.
In the wake of such a horrific incident, the Tang Sect naturally wasn't going to offer such an important piece of technology to the federation.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
