The Great Mage Returns After 4,000 Years Chapter 156: Recap
Chapter 156 of The Great Mage Returns After 4,000 Years was recently released on 2nd February 2023. The chapter starts with the fierce fight between Anastasia, Frey, and Agni. Anastasia now has gotten pretty used to the new body and has started attacking Agni.
Frey is trying his best and attacks Agni with ice magic to have a type advantage against his fire-type attacks. Frei’s attack was a feint and Anastasia comes up close to Agni and starts landing insanely powerful punches at him.
Anastasia adapts to the new body pretty well and shocks everyone when she uses Kassajin’s Martial Arts as it was more suiting according to the body. Agni was not going all out in order to not gain much attention from the demi-gods, but he snaps and tries to kill Frey and Anastasia.
Agni starts absorbing the fallen demi-gods and turns into a giant, humanoid-like figure made up of fire. He is now in his true form. With just a swift of his hand, Agni unleashes a powerful attack, if this utterly ridiculous power-up wasn’t enough Agni’s flames scorched up all of the oxygen in an instant and made it difficult for everyone to breathe.
The only one who can match Agni was Anastasia as her body isn’t human but a machine. Anastasia charges toward Agni and hits him with one of her most powerful punches. This makes Agni fall to the ground and Frey uses his 9th Circle magic ‘Absolute Pillar’ to assist Anastasia and with this, the chapter came to an end.
