Chapter Five Hundred and Seventy Five – Kill
Sonic Boom, it referred to the explosion that occurred when the body broke free of the restraints of air.
Technically, this technique was not difficult and even someone in brigadier level could comprehend it, but in reality there were very few mo that comprehended this technique. This was because sonic booms required a solid foundation in the fundamentals and basic techniques. One had to be very balanced and outstanding at controlling every part of their body.
Yet for these people that started cultivating when they were children, there were rarely any that would cultivate the basic mo skills one by one. Every mo skill had their focus and being balanced meant that no one trait was outstanding. For mo that were highly competitive and lived in cruel environments, not many would choose this.
The mo that could achieve sonic booms may not be very strong but they were well rounded and good at controlling their body.
The benefits of the sonic boom could be seen. Breaking free of the restraint of air meant that one’s movements could become faster and more nimble. The momentum behind their attacks could be stronger. The mo that could achieve sonic booms had the outstanding ability to balance their body and would have each action under their complete control—for example, Zuo Mo at this time!
His back was slightly arched like a cat about to pounce. His right hand that was drawn back at the side of his body and flashed with a serene blue light. His punch drew out a heart-shaking stream of light!
His movements were clearly lightning fast but every action was clear and crisp, perfectly coordinated. It carried a beauty that was pleasing to the eye.
Pang Chen definitely did not feel any sense of this beauty!
A thin layer of sweat had unconsciously appeared on his forehead. After blocking just one attack and retreating one step, he felt as though he had fought for a long time and was extremely exhausted.
His resilient mind that he was proud of started showing signs of instability.
All of this was because of the other’s strong pressure!
A suffocating pressure that could crumble mountains!
It was just one punch … …
There was a gigantic battle arena but for some reason, he felt as though he was trapped with nowhere to escape. At the sonic boom just now, his expression changed. It was not the first time he had seen a sonic boom but now… …
His gaze stared hard at the serene blue light that flowed and flashed in the air!
His body uncontrollably shivered, all the blood inside seemed to freeze, every muscle seemed to disobey. The other’s murderousness seemed to wrap around him. No matter where he tried to flee, he would not be able to escape the other.
Time seemed to slow in his eyes. That mind-blowing serene blue light seemed to slow down.
He seemed to already see the result. He would not be able to dodge it! He would be destroyed!
Blood rose in Pang Chen’s eyes. He was like a wild beast trapped in a cage and furiously fought back! He was a famous warrior who had fought through numerous battles. Fighting free of the terror, his fighting spirit exploded!
Dead … … then he will also die!
Pang Chen’s expression was twisted. He glared angrily and ignored the streak of flowing light that was heading towards him. He charged forward rather than retreat, leaping directly at Zuo Mo!
The brown mo matrix was like the scales of a python, layer upon layer that covered Pang Chen’s body. They seemed to come alive and wandered all over Pang Chen’s body. His body became as flexible as a snake, each muscle like a cord made from numerous thin chains woven together.
Using his left foot as the pivot, his body twisted strangely!
Every piece of muscle tensed and suddenly contracted like a slender iron chain. Shocking power exploded the moment the muscles tensed!
The power was passed on in waves to his right fist!
The brown light seemed to be tangible as it shrouded his right fist. It seemed to be the head of a python, howling and shrieking as it swept the entire field like a galewind!
[Twisting Python Pounce]!
Lan Tian Long’s eyes lit up on the stands. His hands dug into the stone handrails but he did not feel it.
Pang Chen’s [Twisting Python Pounce] was much stronger than in the past!
All the power in his body gathered in Pang chen’s right fist in this instant. This strange technique of gathering power was extremely powerful in its momentum. Even among Great Peace City that was filled with experts, it was an unique attack!
Just as Lan Tian Long was shocked, a change happened.
The brown ball of light that shrouding Pang Chen’s right fist began to crumble from the top like a mold of dirt. The layer outside started to fall off!
A life-like brown python head appeared!
The cold pupils, the triangle-shaped head, the tongue that flickered about. It was still a brown light but it gave people a feeling of being alive!
The eyes of the brown python narrowed slightly. Its great mouth opened and its sharp teeth shot out.
Crack, Lan Tian Long’s hand tensed and he ripped a large piece of stone off the handrails.
Lan Tian Long’s eyes did not move away. He felt his blood boil when he saw Zuo Mo’s punch and he hadn’t expected for Pang Chen to have a breakthrough while standing at the gate of life and death. Seeing this, he wanted to get on the field as well.
Pang Chen was overjoyed. He hadn’t thought he would have a breakthrough at such a crucial moment. A power he never felt before swelled up and filled every muscle in his body. He had never felt so powerful before!
He had confidence that anything, no matter what, would turn to dust in front of his punch! Even if it was a mountain!
The howl of the brown snake was like a furious wave that covered all sound in the battle stadium!
Suddenly, he saw a pair of eyes, a pair of clear and determined eyes!
He stilled slightly.
The serene blue light rippled as it suddenly jumped into his field of view.
This … … this was … …
The other did not dodge, did not hesitate or pause. It was as though the other did not see anything. That fist that was covered in the serene blue mo matrix collided with the python!
Pang Chen wanted to laugh out loud. He had not imagined the other to be so confident to such a level. Even seeing that he had had a breakthrough, the other still tried to overpower him!
Such an idiot!
Did he not know that the [Twisting Python Pounce] after his breakthrough was ten times as powerful as before!
Such intoxicating power!
Come, have a taste of ten times the power!
Pang Chen’s smile suddenly became vicious.
Yet his smile suddenly froze on his face. The scene in front of him seemed to play out in slow motion, delayed and crystal clear. He watched as the brown snake started to crumble, from the teeth, and then turn to dust!
Why … … was it like this … …
He did not have the time to think before the python turned to a ball of powder and dissipated. The sharp howl abruptly stopped!
Ten times … …
The blue light filled every corner of his vision.
Zuo Mo did not take a second look at the pile of blood and flesh. He panted. The punch just now had used up almost all the power in his body. He took a few deep breaths and he recovered some strength. He raised his right fist. The serene blue mo matrix on his hand had diminished in intensity.
Zuo Mo was savoring the feeling of that punch just now.
If it was just pure physical power, the attack definitely would not be so destructive. The moment he came into contact with the other’s fist, a thread of shen power inside the right fist suddenly came out. This was what caused such a terrifying [Sky Glass Wave]!
Shen power … …
Zuo Mo was contemplating this occurrence.
Zuo Mo quickly recovered. The stands were completely silent. Everyone was gaping, their faces pale and had terrified expressions.
Among this death like silence, Zuo Mo walked back to his starting position, back straight,picking up his bandage, and started to rewrap his hand.
His movements were slow and his expression serious as though no one else was around.
There was no joy from his victory. Even though he had gain understanding on many things from this fight, even though he had successfully completed a step in Pu Yao’s plan … … but if none of this had ever happened, if he was still on Wu Kong Mountain, then how good would that be … …
This absurd thought flashed in his mind and then disappeared just like the warm memory fragments.
He grimaced inside. His eyes became clear again, and determination set in.
“Hey, what are you called?” On the stands, Hua Ning suddenly shouted loudly. The guards around her instantly became nervous. From Zuo Mo’s display just now, they knew he was a very dangerous person.
Zuo Mo was slightly surprised. Just now, he had heard what Hua Ning had said to Pang Chen.
This woman was really heartless!
He couldn’t help but glance at Pang Chen on the ground in sympathy. He did not stop to respond and continued to walk back outside. My A Gui is so much better!
Shu Long had an expression of relief and hurried over. He had been very nervous just now.
“Hey hey hey, I asked you a question!” Hua Ning still chased after him.
Zuo Mo was too lazy to pay attention to a girl with such a bad heart. He left.
“You you you … …” Hua Ning had not expected that someone would ignore her. She instantly burst into tears and her guards hurried to comfort her.
In the stands, Lan Tian Long did not call out to Zuo Mo. However, his eyes flashed. His intuition that day had not been wrong!
Only when Zuo Mo’s figure disappeared from the battle stadium did the deathly silent stands lose all restraint and explode. The roaring crowd made it so that people could not even hear what the person next to them said.
Everyone’s expressions turned from an ashen white to an excited red.
The fight just now was brief but it was mind-blowing and unexpected. Everyone was immersed in the fight just now. That unparalleled and domineering punch. The promise of ten moves that Pang Chen had declared, his breakthrough at the cusp of life and death.
The famous warrior Pang Chen had been killed in two moves and his opponent was an unknown newcomer. This fight would shake the entire city!
Feng Yue hurried with her army. She had disobeyed military orders and had secretly taken an army troop with her but she knew what was most important. She had followed Jiang Zhe for a long time and her judgment was not bad. She knew that this period of time was the prelude to a large battle. After a brief respite, the counterattack from the mo would come.
She had to take revenge for Ding Zhen Shishu before the mo retaliated.
So while travelling, she did not rest for one moment. She desired to reach Cloud Sea Jie at the fastest possible speed.
After they crossed this jie river, they would be in Cloud Sea Jie.
“Everyone is tired. There is just a bit of road left. Everyone, put one last effort in. We will rest when he get to Cloud Sea Jie!” Feng Yue motivated the group.
The subordinates could not disguise their exhaustion but they nodded. Feng Yue held great weight among them and they were well-trained. It was difficult to travel fast like this, but there was still a distance until it reached their limits.
“Let’s cross the river!” Feng Yue gritted out.
Ding Zhen Shishu, I will definitely get revenge for you!

Time for Zuo Mo to go back to studying and see if A Wen has had a breakthrough.
Wonder what will happen when he uses shen power with his Archaic Wasteland Sacrificial Art.
Don’t forget, Ge still has another monstrous trump card.
Born to sleep! Born to eat! Born to shit!
That… ‘thing’ only comes out for food , the promise of food or the threat of reduced food.
Please do tell, I totally forgot 🙂
Poor Python guy didn’t stand a chance against Zuo Mo’s unthinkable logic. Oh sudden breakthrough? Nope appears to casually shake off the attack and kill the opponent in one smooth move… Zuo Mo is a genius with regards to Mo cultivation such a cheat XD
I suspect Zuo Mo’s clan lineage was much closer to the Mo branch of the ancient Shen he really is just too good there :p
Well, the Ancient Shen lineage way of fighting is probably much closer to Mo than to Yao and humans…
If you remember the ancient battlefield, the elder just tell them that in his time, they just punched for fight…
How could it have a mo branch tilt when shen power preceded mo power. when shen power was the thing in the past there is no such word as MO. not lineage dude. I tell yah. ZM is a genius on instincts and MO just happened to move base on instincts as well. They fit like an apple to a pie.
clans of shen power users that survived would have had to survive in either mo, Xiux, or yao jie’s. So they could have picked up some understanding/how they worked from those clans.
Thanks for the new chapter!
Why is that Feng Yue in such a hurry to die, tsk tsk. Is this a present for Gongsun Cha?
Well, he is in need of a new grindstone considering the other was a bit too tough. Got to appreciate the excellent timing of those baldies.
The woman is bald or not?

Thanks for the chapter 😀
Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)
..just another day of Zuo Mo being a boss..
Ill pound that
just a little bit more and zuo mo gonna be a one punchman
Feng Yue is an idiot? Who would exaust their troops marching while planing to rest INSIDE THE ENEMY TERRITORY!? Well, it seems like Little Miss will have an easy target XD
The two last chapters make me remember this all the time:
Thanks for the translation!
Well, Cloud Sea Jie is a backwater Jie according to the Four Great Shits.
You destroyed the page. Just sayin. The link is just too long that the width was messed up.
Its not me!
Its the punch’s fault!
It destroyed the page with the strength of its long link XD
Considering that she’s from one of the 4 Great Sects and the potential enemy is unknown and from an unknown jie of Cloud Sea Jie, she’s… looking down on them with reasonable reasons.
Except the person she wants to get revenge for was a yuanying that died there. Without knowing how a yuanying died it’s stupid to look down upon the enemy.
even if your looking down on some one you should at least send a team forward to scout the entrances to a possibly hostile jie. Jumping off a cliff is just suicide. Even if you have intelligence it is always best to have fresh eyes that can tell you what the situation is. Speed in her case is necessary but caution should clearly have been higher.
She knows that a yuanying died, but doesn’t know who or how many did it. It could theoretically have been two passing by yuanyings.
The 4 great sects are famous for reasons, and a battalion or a large enough group of experts to match them, without belonging to the other great sects is nearly unthinkable for most of them.
And even if they have that, there’s no guarantee they would have an intelligence system in place , and it’s better to rush through a transmission formation / teleportation portal and then rest than resting before and running into a well-organized ambush.
Snake meet atom bomb
” but if none of this had ever happened, if he was still on Wu Kong Mountain, then how good would that be … …”
Okay thats retarded. If he had stayed with them, they would had keept punishing and holding him back, because of their idiotic beliefs. And ZM would never have become even close to as strong as he is now, not even in tens of years. Not to mention getting all his loyal followers, that think and treat him much better than the sect ever did. I dont get why the author wants ZM to have such high opinion of his old sect, wen there isent any real reason to why he should have.
Rose tinted glasses tend to obscure many things.
Also, he probably understands that all of their unreasonable behavior was out of concern for him, and he’s never really been all that obsessed with power, at least, not unless he had a specific goal for which he needed it. Power, in and of itself, isn’t as important to him as jingshi, family and friends.
Power has always been importen to him, since its what he needs, if he wants to figure out his own past. But you are right that in the beginning he dident think far enough to understand that.
And thats what im trying to say, he has way more friends, and people that pretty much are like family to him now in his group. What did he have back in the sect that was so importen? He was only close to 4 of them. And he already has two of them in his group now, and is trying to save the other two. So i dont get why he pretty much thinks of the sect as a holy place for him.
He had peace, friends, a feeling of family, and a bright future filled with more of the same. Also, nostalgia. Lots and lots of nostalgia.
Peace? He constantly got thrown in dangerous situation by them, and got punished when he actually did a good job.
Well we can agree to disagree, since see it to diffrently 🙂
And you cant forget. Home will always be home. Hes been wandering too long without one.
I think Cloud Sea jie could have been one, but fate didn’t allow. Who knows if it’ll still be there when he gets back.
I understand both your viewpoints. The sect wasn’t nurturing to anything besides sword skills (and the dan making to a lesser degree). But when someone is in constant battles, not knowing when a small mistake (or random attack) could destroy everything they have built/hurt the people who depend on/are important them, etc… Thinking back to the days when all you had to worry about was a few ling fields can seem like Heaven.
I work in the medical field and there are a lot of days that I think I want a different profession because having people’s health/lives in your hands is STRESSFUL no matter how much talent you have. Meaning, yes, he’s stronger now, has awesome and uber devoted followers, is powerful and wealthy… but that’s a lot of responsibility.
The memes about people not wanting to adult anymore are kind of this. Also, mistreated children are quite often loyal to their parents because it’s all they know and in the end they are still their parents.
These are the random and scattered thoughts I had while reading through your discussion 🙂 From the outside looking in, the sect could have been much better to him, but I do understand why ZM would feel the way he does about them.
I like your point about parents and children. Yes, when you haven’t experienced anything else, it seems normal. We are all just too used to masters who go ga-ga over the MC’s talent and giving them lots of resources, unrealistic as that may be.
I don’t agree with that. Not everyone like the lifestyle of struggle and cultivate to become no 1 and have a lot of followers. Zuo Mo actually a simple and pragmatic kind of guys. I have reread the earlier chapter recently and kinda agree with Zuo Mo. His life at that time are simple and more enjoyable (except the last part where the master put him in the formation to learn sword).
Yeah he had a peacefull life, until he showed his talent and they began to force him onto a path that they wanted him on. Thats the reason why i dont like the sect, since ZM only wanted to be left alone and work for his jingzhi. But they kept making it difficult for him, for selfish reasons. Im not saying he wants to become stronger to become number one or anything like that, but he needs strength to learn about his past, and protect his group.
Self-centered alert. Self-centered alert. You must be Zhong Di.
If Shu Long is here, then who is guarding A Wen?
I wonder if that woman will make trouble for him over this? I mean, significant enough trouble to matter.
Why rest after entering Cloud Sea jie? Wouldn’t it make more sense to rest just before entering? Resting inside enemy territory is just asking to be ambushed.
Where did you read shu long is here?
Towards the end as Zuo Mo was leaving the arena.
Here “Shu Long had an expression of relief and hurried over. He had been very nervous just now.”
It threw me off a bit too.
Ya….. but the text says it… sometimes FX does get things wrong…
Little miss experiment victims almost arrived.
Thank you for the chapter!
One Punch Mo is that you?
It’s actually 2?
Thank you for the chapter……..
Thank you for the chapter!
‘ “You you you … …” Hua Ning had not expected that someone would ignore her. She instantly burst into tears and her guards hurried to comfort her.’
– Zuo Mo ignored another pretty lady…and what do they say about a woman scorned?
Thanks for the chapter!
‘Everyone’s expressions turned from an ashen white to an excited red.’
– And so that day another Zombie Legend was born…
– Zuo Mo should get a minstrel or storyteller or someone to collect The Famous Tales and Amazing Deeds of The Scalping Zombie and The Butcher Battle General and Their Merry Band of Multiracial Turtle Island Warriors…It would be a bestseller. So many jingshi <3 Lil'Mo could send a signed copy to Wu Kong Sword Sect Elders…They would so looooove that. Lol.
*cough cough*…. they did. It is called WoC.
And how did the Elders react? 😀
Poor Hua Ning. With her bulging muscle and bulky appearance she’s the ideal mo female. She’s never been embaressed like this before.
author-san, your definition of sonic boom is wrong…
also, it is not a technique, it is just moving fast
… not a real sonic boom bro.
from the description on how its throwing off the bonds of air, and the noise it produces it very clearly is
No it isn’t… it is described as a technique not a physical phenomenon…
A technique that is called sonic boom, overcomes the shackles of air, works by having lots of physical ability, and makes a loud boom sound, and that everyone can learn regardless of what physique they have.
So… it is clearly the physical phenomenon called sonic boom. only the author is calling it a technique for some reason and has some inaccuracies about it
… you realize this is a fictional universe right? Like superman would impale anyone he caught in his arms while flying…
That is not a good visual.
This is clearly not the phenomenon called sonic boom in our universe : a sonic boom doesn’t throw off any bonds, in fact it is the result of hitting “the bonds of air” continuously while surpassing the speed of sound. Zuo Mo seems to do his “sonic boom” while stationary and it allows him to move better… You don’t move better once you’re sonic booming, in fact it is harder, the resistance of air is even stronger (though being at the limit of the speed of sound is very bad for stability so…).
This “sonic boom technique” is clearly inspired by the physical phenomenon but hasn’t got much in common with it.
“a sonic boom doesn’t throw off any bonds”.
Which is why I literally said author is wrong about how sonic booms work.
However, the fact he described it in such a way makes it abundantly clear that he is misrepresenting a real phenomenon rather than inventing something completely unrelated that just happens to share its name
Thanks for the chapter
Thanks for the chapter. Zuo Mo’s Goal in this arc: get invited into the strong family and save his friends. Side goal: steal as much mo bei as possible & get revenge for Pu Yao and Wei. It’s going to be an epic revenge. Thousands of years of not doing much, they probably spent at least a few hundred years planning for the tiny chance of revenge.
besides this whole city is a mini arc within a mini arc. main arc cure A gui, mini arc get mo embryo’s, unexpected mini arc rescue old friends, within unexpected arc get revenge for old fogies in his head. The arcs are a bit complex right now.
Well, it is really one big arc called the story in the end.
thanks for the chapter!
did lil’miss establish a spy or scout network?
Thanks for the chapter WYCHWE and WanderingGummiOfDoom! I hope Zuo Mo swallows all the xiuzhe sects whole. So far none of the big ones seem like places that foster decent people.
Dear Friends, many thanks to the Author, Translator(s), (Editors), (Donors) for the awesome chapter! With lots of love, Jack
“My A Gui is so much better!”
LOL, it’s interesting how Zuo Mo, though once hypnotized and trapped in an illusion with beautiful women as though that was what he wants, is so indifferent towards ladies. Even Lian’er doesn’t enter his eyes. Hahahaha.
Thanks for the chapter!
Epic! I watched the whole thing while listening to Guile’s theme song. SO GOOD!!
(P.S. A Gui has officially won the waifu war – but is there still room for other waifus? Find out, on the next, W. O. C.!!!!)
