  1. “It isn’t that either. You know that. You may be a Magic God, but you are not perfect. Or
  2. rather, you are too perfect and that gives you a troublesome characteristic. You know that
  3. and that is why you have put together this exaggerated plan to free you from that dilemma.”
  4. “...”
  6. “Infinite possibilities sounds good, but that gives you both the possibility of success and
  7. the possibility of failure. I suppose it’s something like matter and antimatter. For
  8. everything, you must hold the possibility for success and the possibility for failure. No
  9. matter how much power you gather, you have a 50/50 chance. If you think of it like
  10. Russian roulette, it’s like taking a shot with three bullets loaded. Let’s be honest, Othinus.
  11. While you possess the power to destroy the world, you also have a fifty percent chance
  12. of losing to a child in a game of rock-paper-scissors. It’s almost a miracle that Kamijou
  13. Touma has lost twice. His misfortune must really be something. But given this condition,
  14. you cannot just wield your full power at random. You want to find a way to control those
  15. possibilities. Wanting to increase your possibilities for victory is natural, but when your
  16. possibilities for failure increase too, you need to find some way of dealing with that. 50/50
  17. is the most troublesome of all.”
  18. The young man then pointed toward his own chest with his thumb.
  19. And he spoke.
  20. “I am an impure example that stopped at the point where I ‘should have’ become a Magic
  21. God. In other words, I lose to you in overall power, but I am freed from that 50/50
  22. dilemma. After all, I am imperfect. Unlike your perfect balance, my odds of victory have
  23. a deviation.”
  24. “And you think that will let you win?”
  25. “No, I already told you I can’t. If I could, I would have killed you long ago,” said the young
  26. man before smiling and continuing. “But that doesn’t mean I don’t have an idea as to how
  27. to push you back just a bit. It’s all thanks to how you so carelessly crushed Kamijou
  28. Touma’s right hand.”
  29. “You don’t mean...?”
  30. “World War III was started by a man who held the power to save the world. He had the
  31. power to save the world, but could not save the world without a right hand to output that
  32. power into the world. That was why he used various methods to obtain that special right
  33. hand. That’s right. You cut off the right hand that only one of can exist in the world.”
  34. A great metallic noise came from above.
  35. It was from one of the pillars used to support the chain-link fence surrounding the ring.
  36. A man wearing red had appeared atop it at some point. His right arm had been severed at
  37. the shoulder. Growing from there was an unnatural distortion of space that looked as if
  38. sugar water had been mixed in.
  39. “Fiamma of the Right with his power to save the world. And me, a man who can wield the
  40. power of a Magic God even if it is impure. ...Now then. What will you do in response to
  41. these changing possibilities? Fifty percent, Othinus. I believe you have even odds of just
  42. forcing your way through this.”
