Panting heavily, the hard-working youkai faced the wall-mounted turret with a look of determination and concentration. The magical construct was preparing the final wave. She had to be ready for anything... who knew what method of attack was going to be thrown her way?
The turret had prepared the final trial, and Shujiko braced herself, ready to evade. The turret hummed, growing louder and louder, until...
Glowing, tiny spheres of energy burst forth, flying around Shujiko's location. Normally, the youkai would've just ignored this, but considering she put this on the Lunatic setting...
She rolled to the side, barely avoiding several ricocheting bullets, which then proceeded to bounce all around the heavily-fortified training room, along with the rest of the fired magic.
For the next several minutes, the youkai was left dodging frantically, trying to decipher some sort of safe pattern to weave through, but even though the golden hair proved just how determined she was... well, it was still damn hard to do.
So when the training exercise ended, what remained was a rather beaten youkai, lying on the ground.
Oblivious to his surroundings, Minato focused all attention on whatever he was doing with his phone, reading texts maybe. Not that he was the type to receive any, but random people on the street weren't the type to know that. Kind of strange how he seemed to know exactly when to avoid walking into someone, or a lamppost. Even stranger how he occasionally muttered 'thanks' or 'I saw that' to himself.
Then again, most people couldn't see a white-haired ghost carrying a giant cat's head.
"Sure ya did..." Alice the ghost muttered. "I know you love web browsing and all, but isn't saving the world just a little
"Probably." Minato replied.
"...Then do something to save the world! Did you send that place any new info?"
Alice looked surprised. "Really? But we haven't used a computer..."
Minato pocketed his phone. "Don't need it for the internet."
The ghost looked momentarily surprised. She wasn't the most savvy with technology, she had always assumed that very specific constructions needed the thingy Minato used to send her intel. But if he had a portable device... then why did he insist on using a computer all the time?!
"Are you taking your own world's fate seriously?!" Alice began to enter lecture mode. Since normal people couldn't see or hear her, there was no problem with being a little
loud in public. "ATLANTIS depends on you to send them world-saving data! What will happen if you're too lazy to help?!"
Minato didn't reply for a moment, only staring straight ahead. Eventually, he replied, "...I think I've been sending stuff to the wrong group."
