The best place in Dong Wei Commercial District to see magic card billboards is at the “Golden Avenue”.
Golden Avenue is one of the oldest street within Dong Wei Commercial District, it has existed since the foundation of Dong Wei City, and now Golden Avenue has become the commercial center of the city. There is a great number of multistory buildings in Golden Avenue, streams of people move back and forth the different stores, almost all of the top business have their shops on this area. This is the appropriate place if you want to observe magic cards.
Here, no matter how small a store is, it will have a magic card advertisement, especially at night, magic cards will display beautiful lights which look as if taken from a fairy tale world. The street at night is loved by both tourists and locals.
However, when Chen Mu thought about it, this was his first time on Golden Avenue.
One of the local signs within Golden Avenue forbids access to the homeless and beggars. And after that period of his life, Chen Mu has been obsessed in his studies, so he has never made time to go window shopping.
So many people!
That was the first feeling Chen Mu got from Golden Avenue, the crowd of people milling around, he must be careful while walking, otherwise it’s very easy to hit others. This made him a little uncomfortable.
But soon his attention was grabbed by the different magic card advertisements of the stores.
Plentiful bosom, slender waist and round hips, bright red lips and white teeth, a seductive expression showing in her eyes. Most of the advertisement billboards showed images of beautiful women, which made Chen Mu feel somewhat puzzled. These outstanding beauties would stand there with an inviting posture, showing some cleavage making it extremely tempting to look at.
He even saw many people passing next to these illusions of beauties, their hands intentionally or otherwise would pass through the illusory beauty’s chest.
Chen Mu was speechless. Was this popular now?
He kept walking straight ahead while contemplating those beautiful magic card advertisements. Soon Chen Mu realized that the larger the business their magic card advertisement would be more sophisticated and creative.
For example, the magic card advertisement he is looking at now, released a very large illusion almost two stories tall.
Chen Mu stood at the doorway of the building staring foolishly at the illusion released on the billboard, almost forgetting himself.
Gazing downwards through the city’s night sky, stand a great number of skyscrapers and tall buildings illuminated by brilliant lights.
A grave and stern looking man dressed in black stands atop of a tall building, indifferently gazing into the distance.
Seated in a dark corner of the street, one seemingly blind man raises his head as if observing the sky.
In a room illuminated by the moonlight, stands a woman dressed in skintight brown leather, her hands upon the movie card while gently cleaning it, suddenly raises her head.
Faces, young or mature, beautiful or ugly, one by one are constantly shown.
At that moment the music suddenly becomes tense, looking from above, a shadow jumps from one building to the other, his movement very skilled and agile. The expression on his face is very imposing, at that moment the drumbeat gets even more intense making people’s heart suddenly clench.
More and more people are running in the same direction.
Chen Mu had never heard that kind of beast roar, such a deep feral howl. As if in response to the deafening roar, the sound of identical monstrous beast shake the heaven, assaulting the senses.
Outside of the city, everywhere beasts flood crazily directly towards the common people.
The people tried to run faster if even a little.
Eventually, both sides collide into each other!
A blazing dragon, the cold edge of a moon shaped blade, a dazzling meteor shower……
At this moment they emerge from the space one after the other as an indefinite complex light and dark color variations that makes a person to be dazzled. Intense collisions, stirring up countless shining stars to illuminate the night. A battle so intense that it was suffocating.
The blazing dragon surrounded by men in black clothes all around, its every attack possessing an immeasurable power, sometimes accompanied by the sound of explosions, it was looking like a god of war.
The woman wearing tight brown leather deftly dodges the attacks from the wild beasts, at the same time unceasingly drawing a moon shaped blade with both her hands, every strike will end with incomparable elegance.
A blind man holding a bamboo cane, moving back and forth among the group of beasts just like a specter, every time the cane knocks gently on the ground leaving behind hundreds of light dots, knocking on the ground once again the light dots fly towards the beasts piercing through them, leaving a trail of lights on the middle of the dark sky, just like a meteor shower.
There is no doubt that this battle is the ultimate victory for mankind, finally a close up of these heroes hands and a card measuring instrument, the logo of the store – a two star card store.
Such an amazing display!
Chen Mu can’t help but be amazed. He can see that the level of the magic card billboard isn’t very high, only two stars. However its contents are extremely rich, the characters and the buildings within the illusion are exceedingly realistic. The most remarkable aspect is its visual effects during that very intense battle.
That’s a very successful magic card advertising, very appealing!
Chen Mu can guess that the price of such an advertisement must be very expensive. Although it isn’t from a very high level, it is very difficult to produce. Its contents are very rich, it’s impossible for a one star magic card to hold so much content. It contains at least five magic cards, however their seamless convergence makes it very difficult to notice.
There are some really capable people on this world! Achieving such results with a two star magic card isn’t something just anyone can do. At the very least Chen Mu is aware of how far he is from reaching that level. For him this is a chance to increase his knowledge.
The vendor from the magic card store saw something strange. The man at the door actually stood there for half an hour, he appeared to be looking at the magic card advertisement. That magic card billboard was made two years ago after spending a lot of money, it was very popular within Dong Wei City. Remembering that event, her heart is full of pride. Every day the door would be surrounded by a crowd of people in order to watch the advertisement. Also from that year, the store’s turnover began to increase at an alarming rate.
But no matter how good the ad is, after being there for over two years people lost interest on it. Gradually the people that take a look at this ad are less and less, by now almost no one. At first it was intended to advertise a specific type of magic card, which by now have become obsolete, however people would find similar magic cards with a far better effect, so it has not been replaced. The young lady is deeply moved, there is someone interested in this magic card billboard, truly a rare animal.
After a while, the strange boy has been staring at the magic billboard, the vendor thought if he remains there for too long, it will affect business, so she intends to take the initiative to approach.
“Hello, may I ask what you need to buy?”
Chen Mu woke up, recovered, he shook his head: “I do not need.” He understood the meaning of the vendor, he didn’t say anything, turned around and left.
Ankou: This chapter took me longer than I expected, the battle scene was unexpectedly hard to translate. Considering my current speed I think I will be translating about 4 chapters per week, I will try to get a fourth chapter before Sunday, but I’m not sure if I will have time to do it. Enjoy!
