Lily couldn’t help but stroke her fingers up and down as she held onto the black and thick sword shaft.1 The weird runes on Seiwa Tamashi were flickering with a red light.
The Mountain Imp —with the blade still stuck in its dead body— had its anima sucked out. The anima curled up the blade like a red thread. It flowed through each and every rune on the blade before reaching Lily’s hand. As a result, the hand which Lily used to hold the shaft was also covered in a layer of red light.
The anima glowed brightly as it was absorbed into Lily’s body. The assimilated anima coursed through Lily’s body until it reached below her navel. That was the approximate location of the dantian as described in the traditional Chinese medicine of Lily’s original world.
Lily suddenly came to realize that the location below the navel was the main core of her body, which was even more important than the heart itself.

She could vaguely feel a microscopic space in the dantian below her navel. Although that space was really small in her body, she could feel an infinitely large space with her spiritual perception.
That was a boundless energy core.
Lily believed that the energy core should be located in the brain, but how come her energy core was below the navel?
‘Perhaps it varied from person to person.’ Lily brushed off the thoughts with that.
Inside the energy core, the thin fog that was originally pale blue in color had been dyed red. It seemed like there was also a dark red magatama2 inside the energy core. That magatama was still dull and lightless just moments ago, but after it sucked in the anima that entered the energy core, it suddenly shone brightly as though it had just been awakened.
The magatama was also releasing Spirit Power at the same time, which replenished Lily’s exhausted body.
“Ahn—! Lily let out a flirtatious scream. That was because the energy released by the magatama was revitalizing her body at a rapid pace. Her Spirit Power was also replenished at the same time. It gave her a strong sense of pleasure and satisfaction.
After all, it was normal for a physically and spiritually exhausted body to crave for a spiritual healing.
The Spirit Power refined from an anima was a lot denser and stronger than the Spirit Power slowly accumulated from the air. The absorption rate was also numerous times faster.
The Seiwa Tamashi trembled in delight from its first taste of anima. Lily was holding it tightly as though she was a girl madly in love. She unconsciously squeezed the sword shaft in between her breasts.
Seiwa Tamashi’s blade produced an unprecedented force of attraction that sucked out the anima from all the dead Mountain Imps within several hundred meters.
“Hum— Hum— Hum!” The anima flew towards the katana.
All the animas had been sucked into the katana that glowed a beautiful scarlet ring of light. Then, with the sword as the medium, the anima was absorbed into Lily’s increasingly beautiful body before they were refined into Spirit Power.
Absorbing the souls of the monsters and demons, then refine them into Spirit Power to strengthen oneself. That was the Soul Eater, an exclusive skill of the shikigami and monsters! It was unknown how a human girl like Lily was able to use that skill.
“It’s full… it’s completely full…” Only by absorbing a dozen or more anima, Lily’s body was already overflowing with Spirit Power. There was so much that the surplus changed into a red demonic aura that covered Lily’s body whole.
Although these processes took a long time to explain, it actually happened in only a few seconds.
The Mountain Imps around Lily were intimidated by the sudden emergence of the dark red Demon Fury. But they recovered quickly and prepared to attack Lily all together.
They might suffer from some casualties, but as long as they attacked as one, even High-tier Samurais would exhaust their power eventually and get killed by the Mountain Imps. This was not the first time this group of Mountain Imps carried out this kind of massacre. They didn’t have a leader but still moved in groups by instinct. That was how the individually weak Mountain Imps survived until now!
After a short period of confusion, the Mountain Imps rekindled their desire to tear this woman limb from limb! But of course, not before they carried out an even more evil deed!
“Shriek!” A big-sized Mountain Imp jumped at Lily.
Lily was still in a crouching position with the glowing katana propping her body.
Lily didn’t lift her head so her face was still covered by the hair, but she detected the Mountain Imp jumping at her with Spirit Power.
That slash was so fast that it wasn’t visible to the eyes. It was as though Lily’s arm moved by itself without her realizing. The slash left a beautiful red light in its trail.
With a penetration force so unbelievably powerful, the Mountain Imp was split in half and flew towards the tree like a bullet. “Bang! Bang!” The two halves of the Mountain Imp turned into meat paste as they bumped against the tree!
Its filthy insides splattered everywhere.
All the Mountain Imps were frozen with shock. It wasn’t that they hadn’t faced a samurai more powerful than her before, it was just that they couldn’t understand how this woman suddenly became stronger than before. She was obviously already on her last straw just a moment ago.
Lily got up slowly, then she grabbed the ripped skirt that could’ve caused her to trip. She swung the Seiwa Tamashi from back to front in order to cut the skirt. There was only a little cloth left to cover her front and rear. The front was just enough to cover her panty, as for the back… it was almost enough to cover her bottom, but the lower part of her rather fleshy butt could still be seen.
Lily also seemed to be surprised at how much she had cut off with that slash. However, she didn’t pay it too much mind.
She lightly tossed the red skirt she just cut off on the skeleton of Aomi. Then she turned around and walked towards the several hundred Mountain Imps.
There was no way the Mountain Imps would give up on the prey they almost hunted just because of one powerful slash. No matter how powerful their opponent was, they could still exhaust their opponent by attacking together!
The Mountain Imps let out a cry that spread throughout the mountain woods. With so many of them crying out at once, even the powerful monsters would choose to withdraw.
“Shriek! Shriek! Shriek!” One after another, the small but surprisingly strong Mountain Imps jumped at Lily.
