In contrast with this final match, all of the previous matches were essentially no more than appetizers.
The outcome of this clash was undoubtedly going to decide who would gain the upper hand in enrollment.
Five minutes quickly passed by, and Qiangu Dongfeng strode forward, followed closely by six other people.
The one directly beside him was none other than Qiangu Qingfeng, who was still very frustrated due to the loss in the last match.
Qiangu Qingfeng was glowering at Tang Wulin with flames of wrath burning in his eyes. This was the first time that Xia Zhengleng had been injured so severely since their marriage; how could he not be enraged?
On the other side of Qiangu Dongfeng stood Leng Yaozhu, presenting a lineup of three Limit Douluos.
Behind them was the elderly man with the brain martial soul who had defeated Tang Yinmeng. His exact cultivation rank was still yet to be determined, but it was no exaggeration to say that he possessed the greatest spiritual power of any Soul Master in the world.
All of a sudden, a person emerged from the crowd, and as soon as he did so, the pressure on Shrek Academy was instantly raised significantly.
The new arrival was none other than the former chairman of the Spirit Pagoda and the father of Qiangu Dongfeng and Qiangu Qingfeng, Qiangu Dieting!
This already made four Limit Douluos in total in addition to an ultra-powerful spiritual system Soul Master.
The final two spots of the seven representatives for the Spirit Pagoda were occupied by the Bai sisters. Their soul fusion skill possessed immense explosive power, and these seven were equivalent in power to six Limit Douluos.
With such a formidable lineup, how could Qiangu Dongfeng not be confident?
From the Shrek Academy camp, the first to emerge was naturally none other than Tang Wulin. He was followed by two women, one of whom was Yali, while the other was a stunning beauty that looked to be similar to Yali in age, but was quite unfamiliar.
A surprised look appeared on Qiangu Dieting's face. "Long Yeyue? You became young again?"
No wonder it had seemed that Long Yeyue had been absent; they had simply failed to recognize her until now! Qiangu Dieting had seen Long Yeyue in her younger days, and now that she had emerged alongside Tang Wulin, he was able to immediately identify her.
Long Yeyue smiled, and said, "You think everyone wants to be an old geezer like you?"
Of course, there was no way that Long Yeyue would miss such an important moment.
Aside from Long Yeyue and Yali, there were two unfamiliar faces among the four other people accompanying Tang Wulin, one of whom was an elderly man, while the other was a middle-aged man. Both of them possessed powerful auras, clearly indicating that they were no slouches. One of the remaining two representatives for Shrek Academy was none other than Xu Xiaoyan of Shrek’s Seven Monsters, while the other was an imposing yet hideous man. Not only were those from the Spirit Pagoda unable to recognize him, even in Shrek Academy, Tang Wulin was the only one who was aware of this man's identity.
Qiangu Dongfeng had thought that Lan Muzi would definitely feature for Shrek Academy in the final seven-on-seven battle, but Lan Muzi and Tang Yinmeng were both absent, and that was quite a surprise to him.
What was even more disconcerting was that he couldn't recognize three of Shrek Academy's seven representatives. This was definitely not a good thing, and he was immediately struck by a sense of foreboding.
"Would you like to introduce these new faces to us, Sect Master Tang?" Qiangu Dongfeng asked in a calm manner.
Tang Wulin replied with a smile, "These are newly appointed teachers for our Shrek Academy, so it's no surprise that you don't recognize them. Rest assured, Chairman Qiangu, they're all from our academy."
Qiangu Dongfeng nodded in response. "Alright, I'll take your word for it."
In reality, he was very relieved that the Amorous Douluo and Heartless Douluo were absent. His greatest concern was that Tang Wulin would make a borderline violation of the rules by getting those two to represent Shrek Academy.
Not only were Cao Dezhi and Zang Xin both Limit Douluos, they possessed an extremely fearsome soul fusion skill, and even Yun Ming had once said that it would be very difficult for him to defeat this pair's soul fusion skill.
This soul fusion skill had been rated as the current most powerful soul fusion skill on the entire Douluo Continent, and if they were to temporarily join Shrek Academy, then withdraw following the clash, there really wasn't anything that the Spirit Pagoda could say.
With those two present, the Spirit Pagoda's chances of securing victory would be severely lowered.
Thankfully, Shrek Academy hadn't made the shameless move of borrowing the Tang Sect's power. These three new faces were very unfamiliar, but surely they couldn't be more powerful than Zang Xin and Cao Dezhi.
With that in mind, Qiangu Dongfeng's confidence was bolstered once again. They had the equivalent of six Limit Douluos on their side; there was no way Shrek Academy could match such a formidable lineup.
"Please enlighten me, Sect Master Tang!"
"Likewise, Chairman Qiangu!"
Thus, the 14 combatants rose up into the air in unison.
Right at this moment, a burst of buzzing rang out in the distance, heralding the arrival of soul planes that were going to capture footage of this generational clash for the media.
The cameras on these planes were designed for long-distance use, so the footage was going to be a lot clearer than before.
"Everyone, no matter where you are right now, drop everything and get to your nearest television because a once-in-a-generation clash is about to take place! This is going to be a seven-on-seven match between Shrek Academy and the Spirit Pagoda, and as a journalist, my blood is boiling in my veins! Our planes are going to be shooting footage from two kilometers away from the site of the battle, and we have an exceptionally spectacular clash on the cards. We're unable to get too close in fear of being swept up in the battle, but judging from the current lineups, I can confirm that there are at least six Limit Douluos combined in the two sides.
"There are four in the Spirit Pagoda, while Shrek Academy has at least two. The four Limit Douluos of the Spirit Pagoda are the current Spirit Pagoda Chairman, Spirit Douluo Qiangu Dongfeng, the former Spirit Pagoda Chairman, Heaven Defying Douluo Qiangu Dieting, his son, Purgatory Douluo Qiangu Qingfeng, and the Vice-Spirit Pagoda Chairman, Heavenly Phoenix Douluo Leng Yaozhu. As for the two confirmed Limit Douluos of Shrek Academy, they are Light Dark Douluo Long Yeyue and Holy Spirit Douluo Yali.
"As we all know, Yali is currently the number one healing system Soul Master on the continent, and I'm sure many of our viewers have been blessed by her work in the past. Aside from those two, there is the current Sea God's Pavilion Master and Tang Sect Master, Dragon Emperor Douluo Tang Wulin, who has been rated as the brightest talent of the younger generation. At less than 30 years of age, he's already the leader of these two major superpowers, and that's a clear indication of his immense potential.
"Apparently, he's also a Divine Blacksmith, and the emergence of a second Divine Blacksmith after Divine Blacksmith Zhen Hua is definitely fantastic news for the entire continent. During the previous matches, many of the Shrek Academy representatives have already displayed pieces of four-word battle armor, and this is undoubtedly going to be a clash of the highest caliber."
Due to the fact that this was a live broadcast, the journalists didn't dare to display too much bias even though they had received benefits from the Spirit Pagoda as doing so could spell an end to their careers.
At this point, the two sides were still ascending.
All of the previous matches had taken place at altitudes between 300 to 500 meters, but they had already passed 1,500 meters here, and were still showing no signs of stopping.
At such a high altitude, sustained flight was impossible below the Titled Douluo level.
There was a saying that altitudes above 1,000 meters was a battlefield that belonged solely to mecha pilots and soul planes, but the powerful beings of the Spirit Pagoda and Shrek Academy were demonstrating to everyone just how laughable that notion was.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
