Chapter 264.5 How to become a God of Lightning
“Eh!? Master~ is…… The “God of Lightning (Raijin)”?” (Tino)
Tino was dumbstruck by this unexpected information.
At the arena of the “Buteisai (Supreme Martial Arts Festival)”. Although it was frustrating, Master’s~ impostor, Kryhi Andrichhi, boasted enough power to be called 《Emperor of Lightning (Raijin)》.
To be able to master lightning spells, which are known for their difficulty in control, to such an extent made him undoubtedly a top-class spellcaster.
Initially, the moment when you are able to use lightning is proof that you are first class. If you convert it to Hunter’s Level, Level 5 would be too underrated. Users who will fall into this category Tino knows are Ark Rodin and Arnold Hale, but as far as Tino knows, Ark’s Lightning Magic was not that large-scale, and Arnold’s power was derived from his weapons. His skill is worthy of him being called 《Emperor of Lightning (Raitei)》 as he is able to continuously drop lightning over such a wide area.
On the other hand, what about the real Cry Andrich?
Master~ is strong. He is strong, kind, smart beyond what Tino can imagine, charismatic, and has a long list of accomplishments to his credit. It is no wonder that he is called the strongest young Hunter in Zebrudia, the sacred land of Treasure Hunters.
However, I have never seen him use lightning. And apparently, the one who was fighting in the arena was a body double………… I have seen him being hit by lightning though.
However, in front of the perplexed Tino, Luke Onii-sama didn’t seem to doubt that Master~ was the “God of Lightning (Raijin)”.
Luke Onii-sama is Master’s~ childhood friend. They seem to have been close friends even before they became Hunters, and the length of their relationship is incomparable to Tino’s.
That’s why normally I think that Luke Onii-sama is right――But is it possible that Luke Onii-sama has seen Master~ manipulate lightning?
Tino looked at him quizzically, but Luke Onii-sama crossed his arms and nodded his head in agreement.
“I’ve been struck by lightning for a while now, so that’s what it was……” (Luke)
Eeeeeeeh………… Is this really what happened?
Luke Onii-sama’s attitude was, as always, full of confidence. This is probably the reason why he has so many fans despite the fact that he is such a problem child that even Master~ often has a troubled look on his face. Tino is definitely a Master’s~ fan though.
However, leaving that aside――When he says this so clearly and so confidently, it seems somehow convincing, so it is really strange.
Certainly, lightning is not something that can strike you by accident. It is more natural to think that Master~ was manipulating the lightning since, normally, it may only happen once in a lifetime. In the first place, even if Master~ was struck by lightning, he always remained calm, so considering that what he said might make some kind of sense――.
As Tino was sinking into a sea of thoughts, Luke Onii-sama asked Tino as if he was seeking my agreement.
“Plus, it is freaking cool, right?” (Luke)
“Eh!? ……………… Y-Yes.” (Tino)
At his sudden and straightforward question, I reflexively blushed, looked down, and answered in a low voice.
Of course. It goes without saying that Master~ is cool, and Tino is a member of the Master~ Fan Club. I had been following him since we first met, and that was what prompted Tino to become a hunter in the first place, so there was no way I could say no.
But even taking that into account, there is no causal relationship between Master~ being awesome and being a “God of Lightning (Raijin)”. Master~ is supreme at being a god or a “God of Lightning (Raijin)”. And it seems that I will barely be able to get my betting money back.
And then Luke Onii-sama nodded in satisfaction.
“Riiight, like, attacking with the power of lightning, that’s cool as hell!” (Luke)
“!? Eh? Ah, yes. That’s right!” (Tino)
Ahhhh, I see…… It was about that…… No, I knew it. Of course, I knew, okay?
By the way, Ruda told me that Arnold, the 《Heavy Lightning Strike (Go Rai Yabusen)》, cut down a Phantom from a Level 8 Treasure Shrine into two by using the power of lightning.
Tino is fully and perfectly a Master~ fan so I am interested in Arnold as much as a stone by the side of the road, but there is no doubt about Arnold’s ability.
And since Arnold can borrow the power of lightning, there is no reason why Master~ cannot borrow the power of lightning. If Tino were a lightning spirit, I would gladly lend my power. So, I guess after all…… He is the “God of Lightning (Raijin)”?
“Tino, you want to do it too, right!?” (Luke)
“Yes! Of course! ……………… Eh?” (Tino)
On reflexes, I nodded at his high-spirited question but then I opened my eyes widely.
Luke Onii-sama *bambam* hit Tino’s back in a good mood.
“Right! I learned something new after watching Cry! A strike containing the power of lightning――That strike was totally written in the notebook that Cry made for me a long time ago, the name of this sword is――『Lightning God Sword (Raijin Ken)』! The me and the Tino from tomorrow will definitely be stronger than the me and the Tino from today!” (Luke)
“Eh? Eeeeeeeh?” (Tino)
D-Don’t continue the conversation by yourself! Is something that I want to say, but can’t.
Tino is at the bottom of 《Strange Grief’s (Nageki no Borei)》 hierarchy. What can I do against Luke Onii-sama, who can even make Onee-sama exasperated?
“I learned something new from what Cry said! I came up with a training menu for this. Cry’s back told me――To get the power of lightning, you just have to feel the lightning!!” (Luke)
You said his back talk to you…… Isn’t that just Luke Onii-sama reading too much on his own? Master~ is indeed often a demon, but even he would not tell you to bathe in lightning in order to get the power of lightning.
I let out a small sigh. A memory of a distant past――Or so it seems, but it was only a few months ago, came back to me.
“Luke Onii-sama, you do not acquire the power of lightning even if you are hit by lightning. When you are hit by lightning――You can only acquire resistance towards it. I know this, I’ve done it.” (Tino)
Running a marathon on vacation while taking lightning-inducing drugs was really tough. It’s funny how it is a good memory now. That was nothing compared to being a frog though……
Luke Onii-sama is simple, but not stupid. If he understands from Tino’s experience that his training is a mistake, then my past experiences will not be for nothing.
Please don’t let his back talk to you and go ask him directly――.

As Tino stared at him with those thoughts in her eyes, Luke Onii-sama narrowed his eyes and said with a somewhat badass expression.
“Aaaah, that’s right. I know, I’ve done it too. But this is what I think. Isn’t it because its strength wasn’t high enough?” (Luke)
“!? Yes!?” (Tino)
“In order to yield enormous power, you need an enormous amount of power. Just like how you need to consume a large amount of Magic power to use powerful Magic! In order to become the strongest Hunter, what you need is――The strongest lightning! The energy of lightning, the power of Mother Nature, will take Tino and me to greater heights!” (Luke)
“D-Don’t draw conclusions on your own!” (Tino)
I shouted without thinking. If it had been Onee-sama, I would have been punished for sure for this tsukkomi, but Luke Onii-sama was unaffected. His eyes were shining like flames with a strong will and thirst for power.
I see, no wonder you are so good with a sword after being hit by a waterfall. Now, Luke Onii-sama――You are not going to listen to me, are you?
