Qiangu Dongfeng was very confident in securing the final victory. The Spirit Pagoda may not have been able to compete with the past Shrek Academy, but now, even with Long Yeyue still around, the outcome of this clash was a foregone conclusion.
Despite this, everyone from Shrek Academy was still very calm, as if they were completely unfazed.
"Three, two, one, begin!"
Two more figures rose up into the air in unison. For the fifth match, the Spirit Pagoda representative was a man in his fifties or sixties with a powerful aura and a pair of hands that were at least twice the size of an average person of his stature.
As for the representative for Shrek Academy, it was none other than Xu Lizhi, who was only a Soul Douluo.
Xu Lizhi wore a faint smile on his chubby face, looking completely harmless.
Yali couldn't help but ask with a concerned expression, "Is this really a good idea?"
Tang Wulin smiled, and replied, "Lizhi works just as hard as I do, and he's constantly been improving these past few years, so don't underestimate him. He's a member of our Shrek's Seven Monsters, and he earned that status through his own power. On top of that, he's received extensive guidance from Elder Long, so you can count on him."
Yali nodded in response.
After rising up into the air, a serious look had appeared on Xu Lizhi's face, but due to his rotund frame, his serious expression didn't hold as much gravity as it should.
He had actually only just flown out of Shrek Academy, and he seemed to be rather nervous.
Was he really nervous? Yes, he was.
This clash against the Spirit Pagoda was extremely important for Shrek Academy. Even if it weren't enrolment day, this was a matter of revenge. If they couldn't beat the Spirit Pagoda, then Shrek Academy's reputation would be severely damaged.
The weight of his friends' trust and the glory of Shrek Academy was truly making him very nervous.
He could still clearly recall the words of encouragement from Ye Xinglan, and that had instilled him with great self-belief.
As the two of them were rising up into the air, the elderly man from the Spirit Pagoda had already been informed by someone from the Spirit Pagoda that this little fatty was one of Shrek’s Seven Monsters, but he seemed to be a food system Soul Master.
Was he here just to make up the numbers?
He had thought that there was a very good chance that Tang Wulin could concede this match as a tactical move, but both of them had already exceeded 300 meters in altitude, and Tang Wulin still displayed no intention of conceding the match.
Could it be that he was expecting a food system Soul Master to win this match? Was he delusional?
"Please enlighten me," Xu Lizhi said in a very polite manner.
The elderly man's brows furrowed slightly, and a cold look flashed through his eyes. The fact that a food system Soul Master dared to challenge him was a clear insult in his eyes, and he immediately seized the initiative to unleash the first attack.
A pair of white boxing gloves suddenly appeared over his fists, fusing as one with his arms and covering his entire forearm.
These boxing gloves were his martial soul.
"That's Fist Emperor Douluo Da Mo."
All Titled Douluos had their own unique stories, and Da Mo was no exception.
No one even remembered what his real name was; everyone simply referred to him by his nickname of Da Mo.
Ever since his youth, he had been renowned for his straightforward fighting style and his love for direct clashes against his opponents.
All of his powers were focused on his fists, and his hands were far larger than those of a normal person, giving him a distinct advantage after he had awakened his martial soul.
He was already a rank 96 Hyper Douluo, and in his eyes, Xu Lizhi couldn't even be considered to be an opponent.
His fury was even further exacerbated after witnessing Xu Lizhi release a total of only eight soul rings.
All of the combatants from both sides thus far had been Titled Douluos, so why was a Soul Douluo being sent into battle now? Was Shrek Academy really running out of good representatives?
There was an insurmountable gap in their cultivation ranks, and on top of that, this fatty was a food system Soul Master!
Qiangu Dongfeng couldn't help but smile at the sight of Xu Lizhi's eight soul rings.
Shrek Academy really had fallen from grace! They were clearly indirectly conceding this match. Regardless of how one looked at this, there was no chance that Xu Lizhi could secure victory here.
Fist Emperor Da Mo's direct fighting style made him quite a troublesome opponent even for Qiangu Dongfeng. His fists were simply too powerful and too quick, and countless opponents had been beaten to pulps by those devastating fists of his.
The students and parents looking from down below were also quite surprised. They didn't know much about the world of high-grade Soul Masters, but even they could tell the difference between Titled Douluos and Soul Douluos!
"One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight... Am I seeing this right? Why does he only have eight soul rings?" Even though the final soul ring was a red one, there were only eight in total? Did he really stand a chance against a Titled Douluo?
"I don't know much about Soul Masters, but I've heard that a difference of a major cultivation rank is a huge disparity. I don't think it'll be easy for that fatty to win. Why is Shrek Academy sending him out for this match? Could it be that they've run out of Titled Douluos?"
"Who knows? Maybe it's a plan. After all, they haven't conceded, and I'm sure they wouldn't do this for no reason."
"You're right, let's wait and see."
Xu Lizhi was naturally unaware of what was being said about him. At this moment, his attention was focused entirely on his opponent and this match.
His opponent's aura was far more powerful than his, and Tang Wulin had told him that his opponent was very likely to be a Hyper Douluo.
In the face of such an opponent, he wouldn't stand any chance by fighting fire with fire. The only way for him to secure a miraculous victory was to make use of the elements of spontaneity and surprise.
In the blink of an eye, Da Mo was already within 100 meters of Xu Lizhi, and he launched his right fist through the air.
A resounding boom immediately rang out, and a burst of golden light that was imbued with extremely fearsome pressure reached Xu Lizhi in a flash.
Xu Lizhi hovered in mid-air with a serious expression, and he drew a circle in mid-air with his left hand on the bottom and his right hand on top.
Gentle white light began to revolve around his hands, and as the circle was drawn, the surrounding light began to refract slightly.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
