"Wait. Let me get Nanao here." Takagi interrupts Takahiro and brings Nanao up to them using his Wind Magic.Bookmark here

"Thanks." Nanao saysBookmark here

"Now listen." Takahiro says.Bookmark here

Takahiro takes out a small jar and a knife from his pocket and says,Bookmark here

"Takagi take this. This is a paralyzing poison. Use it on this knife and your spear. Throw the knife at The Bear's left hand and hit The Bear on his left leg using your spear."Bookmark here

"Ok, got it." Takagi saysBookmark here

Takahiro then continues,Bookmark here

"As for you, Nanao, you just have to crystalize The Bear."Bookmark here

The bear starts to wobble.Bookmark here

Taking advantage of this, Nanao runs close to The Bear and touches The Bear.Bookmark here

"Crystal Magic: Clear Prison!"Bookmark here

All of them start to worry.Bookmark here

"Nanao! Use your magic on The Bear's right arm and right leg!" Takahiro shoutsBookmark here

"Okay!" Nanao saysBookmark here
