148-reno teaching

 After visiting the grave, I came to a free virtual space called "VR Dojo" at Toki's suggestion.
 Lynne is not here at the moment because she has to set up the distribution of the VR equipment.
 Toka-chan is training, and Ron-san is either taking a test or sleeping.
 By the way, Toki-san and I are wearing white dojos because we are in a virtual dojo.

 Even though we were in the dojo, we were sitting in the middle of the dojo, and if anything, we were relaxing, sipping tea.
 Toki-san said that he was going to teach us, but he did not say that he was going to have a handfasting.
 In the first place, Toki-san was not a martial artist, and he would only be giving me his opinion on my fighting style.

'Nanaka, do you remember what I taught you in the past?

'The vital points of animals and how to destroy them: ......, right?

'You remembered it well.'

 Judging by Toki's response, it seems my answer was correct.
 I was a little girl with too much power in my hands.
 I think it was just after I protected Rin from the dogs.
 What Toki-san taught me was the most efficient way to neutralize living things in order to protect Rin.

I'm not sure if you're aware that you're not very good at attacking in close combat, Nanaka?

'Ugh ...... yes.'

 She pointed out something that she didn't want to be pointed out, and involuntarily turned her face away.
 As Amber once pointed out, I'm not very good at attacking in a fight.
 On the other hand, I am used to standing around mainly using counters, and Amber once told me that I should work on that.

'There is no need to be depressed. If you are aware of this, it means that my teachings are well ingrained in you.'

'Oh, is that so?

 A little relieved, I returned my gaze to Toki-san.
 He doesn't seem to be angry with me for my inadequacy.

'In the first place, when I taught you how to use your powers, I taught you to always watch your opponent's attacks before you counterattack. Do you remember the reason for that?'

'Because it would be a crime to do so without first establishing self-defense.'

'That's right.

 Toki-san nodded in satisfaction, as if my answer had been well-received.

 In the first place, what Toki-san taught me was 'how to protect Rin', not the violence of destroying every living thing in sight.
 And in this country, which is governed by the rule of law, the one who hits first is basically considered to be at fault.
 That's why Toki-san had carefully imprinted on me the idea of 'taking only one hit before neutralizing the opponent'.

 Of course, I've never been injured by a thug, because I've only been able to parry his attacks.
 In addition, I was told that this was only against humans, and that I could take the initiative and destroy animals.

The reason why I taught you the art of self-defense is because you are a child who could destroy any disruptive elements that you see. I'm sure you're not the only one who has a problem with that.

I'm not sure if I'm that rambunctious. ......?

'He was not a rambunctious person, but rather a dangerous person, like a bomb. He was unusually overprotective, especially of Butane. I'm not sure if you've heard of it, but I'm sure you've heard of it.

 He said it so casually, but I think he said some pretty terrible things.

 I think Toki-san is talking about when he was about 5 years old.
 It seems that there were a lot of thugs who wanted to kill Rin at that time. ......?

I'm sure you've heard of it, but I'm not sure if you've ever heard of it. Is it the strength you have when you touch Butane, or is it your full power? I'm sure you're not the only one who has a problem with that.

'...... Yeah, I guess you're right. But I see. My fighting style has its roots in the past.

 I'd forgotten about it because I'd become so accustomed to the idea of aiming for the vital points and aiming for partial destruction.
 However, from what you've just told me, it seems that Toki taught you how to use your power to keep me from destroying you.

'However, you have changed a lot. You don't only see Butane like you used to, but you have developed communication skills through your work, and now you have friends who don't go through Butane. ...... Now, you don't have to misuse your power anymore, do you?

'Yes. I'm not sure if you've heard of it, but I'm sure you've heard of it.

'Oh, I didn't know that. I didn't know that.'

 As Toki-san said earlier, at first there were only two choices: 'touch Rin' or 'full power'.
 From that point on, I made fine adjustments, and by the time I was about ten years old, I think I had reached the perfect level of strength.
 By then, though, there were hardly any undesirables who would have attacked Rin-chan.

'Well, what I've told you so far is just the real world. From now on, Nanaka's battle will be in VR, or virtual space. If so, you must know how to fight in virtual space.

 It is true that I have never changed my fighting style just because I was in a virtual space.
 In fact, the WLO has created a pretty sophisticated world, so there is almost no difference between it and the real world. ...... The only difference between it and the real world is that there is no blood coming out of the creatures.

In the event that you have any kind of questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site. I'm not saying that's a mistake, but ......'.

 Toki choked on his words as if he wanted to say something, but then said, 'Well, that's all right,' and returned to the subject at hand.

'From now on, Nanaka will be making a living from games. No matter which genre you play, if you don't understand the virtual space, you'll fall behind the other players.

'Understanding the virtual space: ......'

'So, let's first learn about physical abilities in virtual space.'

 And so Toki-san's lesson began with an explanation of the virtual space.
