142-Skuna's Throwing Course

'However, I can't say that I'm teaching you, because I'm also doing it 100 percent by feel.

'That means you're doing it 100 percent by feel, right?

'You could say that.

'Good luck verbalizing that.
'You can do it, Sukuna.
'Don't give up.

'I'll do my best for everyone.

 But I can really do everything by feeling.
 Hmm, what should I do?

'When I think about it, I've never even shown you properly.

'It's true that Sukuna always does it suddenly, so I've never really looked at it.

'I need some kind of good target. ...... Yes, Himiko.'

'What's that?

'Can you be my target for a second?

'I don't want to, but...?

 When Himiko heard my suggestion, she looked at me like I was a cartoon character. If it were a manga, it would have sound effects.

"It's too much.
'It's too heartless.
I'm not sure what to make of it.

'Oh, sorry, I misspoke. Can you hold the target for me?'

'Oh, that's good. ...... No, it's not good. It's the kind that will stab me if it misses.

'Don't worry, I won't miss.

'I like your confidence, Sukuna. ...... Okay, I'll hold it. But don't hit me.

'I'll take care of that.

 I'm grateful to Himiko for agreeing to help me, and I operate the menu card.
 I took out a target to use for throwing.

'By the way, what are you going to use as a target?

'Well, I have a target for throwing practice, so I thought I'd use that.

'Where did you get that?

'The event item exchange. See, I collected 240,000 shards, right? I exchanged some items that I thought might be useful in the exchange after the event. But I still have more than half of the shards left.

 I really did exchange a lot of items. So many that I've filled half of my inventory with them.
 One of the more unusual items was a kind of "skill tutorial item".

 As the name implies, these are items used in the tutorials for the skills available in the city of beginnings, and can be exchanged for relatively few shards.

 For example, there were straw scrolls for slashing skills, scarecrows for magic, and one of them was a target for throwing.
 I don't know if there was no demand for it, but it could be exchanged for about 30 shards. The number of users of the throwing skill must be as small as ever.

'Huh. ...... Indeed, it was said that you could exchange all the items with 30,000 pieces. I was not able to attend the event, so I only heard about it.

'Oh, ......, this was an event limited to towns with numbers, right?

 Himiko has been in the demon village since before the event and has not left the village since the event until now.
 The gate leading to the otherworldly space was opened only for the six cities from the city of the beginning to the city of the sixth, so of course Himiko could not participate in the event.
 It's hard to pursue this question since she's so open about it, but to tell the truth, she must have wanted to participate in the event.

 I don't know why Himiko wanted to come to the village of demons, which is far above the appropriate level.
 And why she is still stuck in this village.
 You could do the same thing you did when you came here, and ask a strong player to help you get back to the third town.
 I don't think that all the players who came here would turn down such a request, and in fact, I'm willing to send them back to Griffith if they ask me to.

 Maybe there's a reason.
 There is a reason why I don't leave this village, not because of my strength or anything, but because of the game.
 For example, maybe you have a special quest that requires you to be in the village to complete, or on the other hand, you can't leave the village as long as you're accepting the quest.

 Well, it doesn't make sense to think about it now.
 Himiko is playing this game the way she wants to play it.
 If she asks for help, she will gladly receive it. That's all I'm saying.

'Here, hold this for me.

'It's pretty big. It's more like a support than a hold.

'I guess you're right.

 The size of the target I took out was that of a man of about 170cm.
 It is much taller than me and Himiko, so it might be more correct to say that it is being supported.

 I carried it, which was surprisingly heavy, 20 meters away, and Himiko set the target on the ground.

'All right!

'Thank you! Then let's get started. I'm going to start with a simple, quick extraction of the vital point.

'Why the kryptonite first?
"The crotch is ...... Forgive me for the crotch .......
"No, you can't.
"Let's see what you can do.
"I don't mind your masterful comments.

 In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, there are a number of things you can do.
 I'm not sure what to do with it.

'If I wanted to shoot him in the groin, I'd do this.

 He picks up about five knives on the ground and lightly throws one of them.
 Throwing knives are less susceptible to air resistance than spherical knives, so they will fly straight and clean at a distance of about 20 meters.

 The knife I threw made a light sound and plunged into the crotch of the model.

'And this is what it looks like...'

'It's too horrible.
'I said I forgive you!
"You're shooting right through it, it's really heartless.

'Hahahaha, no, I was just pretending to be ......'.

 You can't help but laugh at the screaming comments.
 Well, that's not a place you want to get stabbed, regardless of gender.
 But if someone says something like that to you at that point in time, you'll want to aim ......, won't you? I just felt like he was telling me to aim.

So, if you want to pull out the eyeballs first, you should aim for the throat, graze the carotid artery here, the heart here, the uterus here, the bladder here, the back of the elbow for the arms, the wrists are good to cut, so you should aim for that, the legs should be deep into the thighs, and if you want to aim for the shins, you should hit them hard with the handle rather than stab them. After that, stab the tips of the limbs quickly and easily, and you're done.

 While explaining the part to be stabbed, he threw the throwing knife quickly.
 All of the knives were thrust neatly into their intended places, or shaved off and passed through.

'Heh, what do you think?

 I asked, relieved that it went well, and Himiko's face turned pale when she saw the knife sticking out from behind the target and into the target.

'Heee ......'.

'It's hitting everything I said it would: ......'
I was just throwing knives without aiming.
"Why did it hit me?
"The knives are really flying exactly where I thought they would.
"It's fun to watch.
"Why are you so skilled at breaking the vital points?

'It's not that you have to aim at the vital point, you know? But if you can accurately shoot through the vital point, you can use it as a showpiece to protect the vital point and gouge another part of the body in the gap, right? It's a good idea to use the most efficient place to hit.

"I see. ......
"You're thinking pretty hard.
"Don't be fooled, it's definitely unconscious.
"It's all about aiming at the vital points, so it can't be helped.

I'm not sure what to make of it. In such games, the concept of kryptonite is often only in the head, but if you want to get to the bottom of reality, one of the kryptonite points is the point where you can aim to bleed to death. It's like poison.

 The point is that there are many ways to get to the final kill.
 In reality, aiming for the vital point is more dangerous than anything else.
 That's why you won't be able to get a good shot in, and they won't let you.

 But as I just showed you, there are countless vital points on the human body, and you can't protect all of them.
 And it's very easy to wound a person who is trying hard to protect his vital points. If you try to aim at their vital point, they will immediately protect you.

 And while I'm at it, I can gently stick a knife in his thigh.
 All animals with a sense of pain can be rendered immobile by a single knife in the leg.

 In this game, where there is almost no pain, you can't use pain to inhibit actions, but if you break the part properly, you can restrict actions by missing parts or destroying parts.
 Bleeding seems to be calculated differently, though, so it's hard to aim for bleeding damage with a single throwing knife.

In the event that you're looking for the best way to get the most out of your business, you'll want to look at the following.

'That's true.
I'm not looking for that much, so no worries.
I'm not looking for that.

'Yeah, that's the thing. The throwing skill has a useful art called shooting. It's just an art that makes the thrown object fly straight without being affected by wind or gravity. It's probably the best of the throwing skills to practice with.

 Throwing skill, 'Shoot'. As explained, the knife is not affected by wind or gravity, and just flies at the same speed and angle as when you throw it. It is slightly more powerful.
 The range is proportional to the strength of the throw, so if you're not strong enough, it won't have much effect, but I personally think this effect of flying straight in a straight line is very powerful.
 The most important thing is that this art has almost no stiffness after the move. You can't fire repeatedly, so it's not like there's anything to it.

'Basically, throwing is a repetitive motion that is ingrained in your body over and over again. You have to keep repeating the information, 'If I throw at this distance, at this angle, with this strength, and with this form, I can reach the target.


'If you use a chute, you can completely nullify the effects of gravity and wind. As long as you keep your form correct, you'll always be able to throw with the same trajectory. You may need to use some SP, but it's a good idea to start using the chute during practice.

It's easy to say, but it's a hard one.
But it's definitely nice that it flies straight.
I didn't know that because I didn't look at throwing skills at all.
I didn't know about the throwing skill. I'm sure you've practiced what Sukuna is saying and concluded that throwing is useless.

'That may be true. But if you want to use it, you can, and if you give up because you can't use it, that's fine. There are a lot of skills out there, so you can pick and choose what you want to use.

 Honestly speaking, even if I thought of a way to use projectiles in this way, I doubt that the listeners would do it.
 Without at least one hit assist function, I think it will remain an unfortunate skill that depends on PS.

 However, there are still people who like to use such an unfortunate skill, and I'm sure those people are making an effort to improve their skills.
 I have presented my own way of making such efforts. All that remains is for the person who hears this to do it or not.

'I'm sorry it's not very helpful, okay?

'That's okay.
'That's okay.' 'I'll give it a try anyway.

'I don't take throwing as seriously as I thought I would.

'Hmm, try it in moderation. It's fun when you can hit it.'

'I came back because I was lonely.

'Oh, thanks for the help. By the way, where's the target?

'It's gone. It's probably a disposable item with a durability setting. The knife was still there, so I retrieved it.'

'Thank you.

 Perhaps she missed me talking only with listeners, Himiko came back with a throwing knife.
 Was the target a consumable item? ...... Oh, it's true, the item description says it's a consumable item.

It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

'Then I'll take you to a little teahouse! They have good tea there.'

'Oh, please.

 After all, I'm not really good at teaching people.
 With that in mind, I had a little tea with Himiko, and then logged out.
