Not a chapter, but a poll

Doing the first poll just to want you guys to decide the skill name. Omnipotent or Universal? Which one do you prefer?

  1. I'm really not sure I can pick one.

    1. If the thread is 'undefeatable', Omnipotent.
      If the thread can be used in a varied array of ways, Universal.

  2. Omnipotent suggests the thread is invincible and all powerful, which I doubt it is.
    Universal suggests it has many uses, like a Swiss army knife.

  3. They both have different meanings so you cant exactly chose between them without first knowing more about the skill

    1. I think omni thread sounds nicer as well, and keeps the meaning just fine too

  5. I doubt he got the ultimate spider thread at just that stage of evolution, so it should be Universal.

  6. as someone who's reading ahead, I'll just say without any explanation or qualifier, it's universal, not omni.

  7. I prefer Omni-thread, as in all/multi-purpose thread. The next evolution after it is the final one.

  8. Omnipotent never sounds good in a name, great for short descriptions, but doesn't sound nice in a name

  9. The question should be "what did the author write" since this is a translation. From the "Chinese" words used, it reads "Thousand (Abilities/Uses) Thread" so I'll go with "Universal" since the name is for "uses" not "invincibility" which is what "omnipotent" implies.

  10. Might need examples of the thread uses before able to decide on one.

  11. 万能糸

    all-purpose thread makes more sense, I think than omnipotent/all-mighty and universal.

    1. ^This. 万能 literally means "ten-thousand abilities", which indicates "can do *practically* anything" it's not the same with omnipotent, which means "can do *absolutely* anything"

    2. what do you think about "versatile"? ^^

  12. Multipurpose Thread might be more accurate.

  13. How about just Omni thread, doesn't indicate that its invincible and seems to "roll off the tongue" better than omnipotent thread.

  14. I think Universal is correct, per see, but 'Omnipotent' just caught my fancy when you used it xDD

  15. ALC.co.jp is always a good place for accurate translations:

  18. Unless a god is incapable of breaking her thread Omnipotent is too much.

  19. Multi-purpose Utility Spider Silk Thread.

  20. The adjective "Omnipotent" makes the Skill sound more god-like, since omnipotent is often associated with God/Gods in stories.

    Then again, Universal Thread sounds cool...
