Mob Protagonist ~ Mob in the Novel But There is a Problem - Chapter 162.1
Chapter 162.1. Is This Nagamasa’s Secret Event?
Takano Miu looked up and marvelously opened her mouth in awe as she saw the eerie monster howling above her head.
“Oh my, oh my, so creepy! Amazing!”
If Miu didn’t look up, she wouldn’t have been able to grasp its full appearance. Nagamasa had grown to such a huge size that it seemed he had lost all traces of rationality.
He glanced around restlessly, his four split mouths wide open, as he grabbed the remains of the assassins scattered in the pool of blood. He joyfully started chewing them with squelching sounds.
Completely absorbed in his meal, he paid no attention to us and didn’t pose any threat.
He would probably finish devouring all the remains soon.
“Hey, what’s that? Who’s this mysterious person?”
I brushed my smooth, silver-gray hair that resembled polished silver and narrowed my sapphire-like deep blue eyes slightly, wearing a cute expression of curiosity as she tilted her head and asked.
It’s a slightly gruesome sight. So it might get restricted due to age restrictions.
“T-This seems to be Nagamasa’s final form. B-But, more importantly, Mii-tan, you’re late!”
Freya reprimanded with puffed cheeks, entwining her fingers and pouting. She showed no concern about the transformed Nagamasa. She resembled a goddess.
“Sorry, sorry. I was planning to stay awake with mama and papa until midnight on New Year’s Eve. But I got sleepy and fell asleep at 8 o’clock.”
I confidently declared to mama and papa with a loud, nasally voice, assuring them she would stay up late tonight. She was immediately carried to bed and fell asleep.
Of course, it was just an act. I didn’t fall asleep. The only thing I can say is that sleeping children grow.
“Well, if that’s the case, I could have joined you long ago. It’s almost the end of the year, you know? Maybe the bells will start ringing.”
“If I pretend to go to bed and sleep, and fall asleep, then I just woke up.”
Miu expressed a lovely face, pretending to be serious, and for some reason, she started poking me lightly.
“Itchy, itchy, itchy, yummy, yummy!”
While playfully frolicking with Freya, Nagamasa in his final form scratched his body vigorously until blood flowed, causing the blood to transform into wriggling red snake scales that covered his entire body.
“Lo.. look at that.”
Seeing this, she becomes a little more serious and points to Nagamasa. Miu also pulls a woeful face and looks at Nagamasa, who undergoes further transformation.
“You’ve fully regenerated from your epidermis on the muscle tissue. And are those snake scales?”
Nagamasa scratches his muscle with his sword-like claws. Fresh blood begins to flow because of his power, but his blood changes its shape and covers Nagamasa’s body.
The blood covering his body transforms into shiny red snake scales. His entire body was covered in snake scales.
Seeing Nagamasa not taking a fighting stance yet, I decided to use magic.
I tried to discern the enemy’s abilities with my usual [Analysis], which allows me to see through everything.
But the results were different this time.
-Snake Demon God Nagaraja: Level 68 Abilities unknown-
“Is that a ……… old man gag?”
“Th-That’s the part where you should be surprised by a demon god or unknown abilities.”
Miu’s eyes widened in surprise at the unexpected analysis result. Her wide-eyed look as a petite beauty was adorable.
“But, you know, Nagamasa is Nagaraja? Did the game developers come up with some scrapped background story? Or maybe it was a setting conceived while they were drunk.”
Nagamasa being nagaraja, would laughing at this label me as an uncle?
“Ugh… That’s not funny at all.”
“Yeah, that’s right. I mean, sometimes characters get scrapped because they’re too strong.”
“Ah, y-yeah, I understand.”
Why is she nodding at me like that? Mi is a quiet, delicate, adorable girl, right?
I thought about giving a gentle smile and responding, but nagaraja had eaten all the corpses, it seemed to have finished absorbing nutrients and completely transformed into a huge monster with a human upper body and a snake lower body.
It turned its reptilian, elongated eyes towards me, drooling from its bloodied mouth.
“Hungry… need more food…”
The upper body alone must be about 8 meters tall. As for its tail, it slithered along the ground like a rattlesnake, making a scraping sound.
It seemed that it now recognized Miwa and the others only as prey. It spread its four arms wide open and approached defenselessly. It ripped off and tossed away the roof of the obstructing warehouse, reaching out its hands.
It has jet-black claws longer than a person’s height.
It approached with its arms outstretched.
“Well, I don’t understand, but let’s defeat this demon god!”
When selecting the command, the magic armor Titania I was wearing faintly glowed, and translucent wings unfolded on my back.
The power of magic surged through my body, boosting my physical abilities as I transformed into Loki Mode.
“Let’s do it!”
I don’t know why he turned into a demon god, and this is the first time I’ve seen this enemy, but I’m determined to defeat it for the sake of justice.
“Defeating a demon god gives great drops!”
“The truth is coming out, huh?”
“I made a mistake! I meant, if we leave it here, there will be tremendous damage!”
While responding to Freya’s false accusation claim, I took my weapons from the item box. I held the crimson dagger, Queen Dagger, in my right hand, and the Praying Mantis Wakizashi in my left hand, preparing myself for the approaching enemy.
The palm of nagaraja was big enough to completely cover me. However, it was slow.
I lifted my body and rotated it as I swung both daggers. I intended to strike a distracting blow to make the opponent stagger, but just before it hit the scales, a golden light turned into a transparent shield and repelled it.
