Hearing the announcement from clown mascot, Kuroneko felt that it was more amazing than she had thought. She saw it last year, but it was different now when the main characters in this world appeared.
Along with the announcement, Kuroneko looked at everyone and said, "We've got to become the rank one!"
They nodded, but suddenly Kuroneko, Luffy, Teppei, and Kouha felt a tentacle wrapped around their waist.
"Rank one, right? It's easy," Korosensei said with a smile.
They were startled and wanted to tell Korosensei to slow down for a bit, but they were too late since they started to move very fast.
They disappeared from their room in an instant and suddenly they appeared in front of the clown mascot for the "Grand Magic Games".
Mato (the mascot of the Grand Magic Games) who had just announced the event suddenly saw Kuroneko, Korosensei, Teppei, Kouha, and Luffy in front of him. "Uwaaa!!!" He felt that his heart almost stopped at that moment.
Kuroneko looked around curiously. She felt as if she had been teleported, even though she knew that it was purely because of Korosensei's speed. She knew very well that Korosensei's speed was the fastest among everyone, and thought that her group might really become the winner of this "Grand Magic Games".
'Kouha, Luffy, Korosensei, and Teppei...'
Kuroneko thought that her team was invincible and no one would be able to defeat them, especially when all of them were v.i.r.g.i.ns.
"I'm not a v.i.r.g.i.n!"
Korosensei suddenly refuted.
Kuroneko ignored Korosensei and looked at Mato who was the mascot of the "Grand Magic Games" and the king of the Kingdom of Fiore. She thought that the king really loved to play as a troll character.
Regaining his demeanor, Mato smiled and said, "Yes, congratulations to the Infinite Guild Team A for arriving first and passing the preliminary contest." Though, inside his heart, he was very surprised since it had been a few seconds after he had announced the contest to begin. He didn't know what had happened, but in his mind, he thought that the "Infinite" was the strongest guild within the Kingdom of Fiore and he didn't think that any guilds in the Kingdom of Fiore could defeat them, especially when they had arrived in a few seconds.
"Thank you," Kuroneko said politely and looked at everyone. "Let's go, guys."
"YEAH!!! We're number one!" Luffy was happy.
"It's good that we can beat Haru," Kouha said.
Teppei chuckled and said, "But he's coming, right, Korosensei?"
"Nyuhuhuhu, yes, he's coming after this," Korosensei said.
Mato didn't understand what they were talking about until suddenly he saw something appeared from below which startled him.
Mato patted his chest when he saw a familiar person, or might be the most popular magician on the "Infinite" guild.
Haru looked at them and said, "Well, Korosensei is sure very fast." He sighed and thought that he really couldn't defeat Korosensei at speed.
Haru, who had noticed Korosensei had started to move, also started to move. He knew that he couldn't defeat Korosensei in terms of speed since Korosensei's speed was 20 Mach. Even though his speed was quite fast, especially on water, it didn't mean he could match Korosensei's speed.
Haru stuck everyone on his body using his gravity magic with three women on his side and Gintoki on his feet below.
Gintoki, who was dizzy when the lodgings suddenly transformed, became even dizzier when Haru attracted himself to Haru's feet.
Everyone turned intangible and Haru proceeded to enter the "Sky Maze" directly without entering the entrance.
Haru also activated his "Observation Haki" and could see the entire maze directly. He didn't care about the obstacle and directly passed through following his "Observation Haki". It didn't even take him a minute to arrive at the goal and became the 2nd team who had passed the preliminary contest.
Why the 2nd team? Because Haru saw Kuroneko and her team in front of him.
Tabane was surprised by Haru's power since he could pass through everything ignoring all of the obstacles in front of him. 'Astral Mode, huh?' She thought that it might be an ability that was related to a soul, ghost, or something. If it was possible for him to turn everyone into this state then it was possible to turn his IS into this state too.
At that moment, Tabane thought that Haru's IS nickname which was "God of Death" was really suitable for him.
"Well, Korosensei is sure very fast," Haru said.
"Hehehe, don't be a sore loser, Haru," Kouha said and patted Haru's shoulder.
"If you learn under me then you might become faster, Haru," Korosensei said with a smile.
Learning under Korosensei? Haru was wondering what Korosensei could teach him. 'How do you choose a p.o.r.n book?' He could only think about that possibility.
Everyone talked to each other in quite a festive mood since they had passed the contest.
However, Mato was stuck in place. He thought that the "Infinite" was really the strongest, especially when they had taken 1st and 2nd place in a very small time difference. He wouldn't be surprised if the 3rd position was also being taken by the "Infinite", but when he was about to announce that Haru and his group had passed.....
Mato smiled and said, "Congratulations to team B "Infinite" guild and passing the preliminary cont---"
Gintoki barfed out all the things which he had eaten tonight.
Everyone hurriedly scattered and that barf hit Mato who wasn't ready for this incident.
Mato was full of Gintoki's barf and the situation was quite awkward.
"Gin-chan, are you alright? Korosensei, can you help to clean Mato-san's body?" Haru hurriedly said to not make the situation worse since the one Gintoki had barfed was the king of the Kingdom of Fiore.
If Haru was the king and stranger then he wouldn't hesitate to kill Gintoki directly or put him in a lifetime jail.
"Roger!" Korosensei saluted and moved very fast.
Mato who couldn't comprehend what had happened suddenly had become clean and his costume was so shiny. The barf earlier had disappeared without a trace.
"T, thank you...." Gintoki was down in four on the ground, but he felt better when Haru caressed his back slowly.
"Alright, let's go and rest early tonight," Haru said.
Everyone nodded and decided to run away since it would be troublesome to explain everything to Mato, especially the barfing incident.
"Then, Mato, we're going to go back early."
Everyone hurriedly ran away from this location.
Mato blinked his eyes and was stunned, but then he remembered that he was hit by Gintoki's barf which made him disgusted, but he saw that his costume was very clean which made him confused.
"What happened? Is it my imagination?"
Mato thought that it was his imagination since he didn't think the members of the strongest guild would barf at himself.
"Ah, Haru and Korosensei have arrived first!"
"Damn, we're too late!"
Mato looked at Sting, Rogue, Orga, Rufus, and Yukino before smiling and didn't feel that much surprised by their appearance.
"Congratulations on passing the preliminary contest and arriving in third, Team C's "Infinite"."
Then one by one the team which competed for this tournament had arrived at the goal.
Mato kept counting and waited for the last team.
Natsu, Gray, Lucy, Erza, and Wendy had arrived on the goal and their faces were full of confidence thinking that it would be the first time they had arrived on the goal.
*Clap!* *Clap!* *Clap!*
Clapping his hands, Mato said, "Congratulations, you've passed the preliminary contest."
"Sure we did! We were moving like lightning!"
"Do you think maybe we came in first?"
"No. You barely made it, coming in eighth," Mato said.
Everyone was stunned at this moment.
Looking at Fairy Tail, Mato thought that the winner of this "Grand Magic Games" had been decided and he couldn't wait to see the competition between teams within the strongest guild.
