Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Chapter 178

Chapter 178.


178 Demon King vs Earth Dragon

「What are you planning? I think that it's an agreement violation that you interfere me」
『That is the agreement exchanged between our master and you. We follow it if it's the master's life. Unfortunately, we are not told to not oppose you』

Kieeeeeaaaaaaaa, it spokeeeeeeeee!!!

No no.
Is this guy serious?
It spoke.

The Demon King and the Earth Dragons that face each other.
The Earth Dragon that has the biggest physique and has the appearance of an old Dragon among them, made full use of the Telepathy and talked with the Demon King.
I mean, it looks like the Demon King knew that the Earth Dragon can speak because she was not perturbed when it spoke willingly.

「Sophism, huh? So? What's the reason for you to oppose me to the extent that you go against your master?」
『Don't you think that the old should be eliminated by now?』
「What do you mean?」

I guess I'm treated as an outsider.
No, well, that's obvious though.
Someone, please explain it to me.
What's the relationship between the Earth Dragon and the Demon King?
Guessing from the conversation, they don't seem close.
I mean, isn't it hostile relationship?

Fumu.
I don't know.
At such a time, I can only peep.

It's going to be a little rude.
I invade the Demon King's soul a little.
The soul and body trembles at the same time.
Ah, sorry.
Endure it a little.

I peep and see the Demon King's memory.
Although she attacked me to eliminate me somehow, I was able to draw out the aimed memory.
Because the erosion rate rose considerably, I came to be able to do things like this.

According to the drawn Demon King's memory, it seems that the Earth Dragons are Gyurigyuri's subordinates.
Ah.
Now that it's said, I can agree.
When I thought why something like Dragon exist in this world, it was created as Gyurigyuri's subordinate.

Does the main body know this?
She seems to know it.
I only know about the outline of the "Taboo", so it's not strange even if there's a description about Gyurigyuri in that.
After all, Gyurigyuri is the Administrator of this world.
It's unthinkable that there's nothing about Gyurigyuri who's the Administrator of this world in the "Taboo" that's the matter related to the root of this world.

Muu.
I feel that the feedback from the main body has decreased recently.
I also have the awareness that I'm changing a little, so isn't this possibly bad?

『The new wind is blowing. Oldest Divine Beast, isn't it the time for us old ones to leave the world?』
「What a joke. Then, do you intent to entrust everything to the new ones? The result to entrust everything is the present situation, isn't it? They must at least be an old existence like me who butts in」

The Demon King floats a callous smile.
Although I can't see the Demon King's expression because I can only see the Demon King's point of view, the Demon King at such a time is in a bad mood.
After I possess this person, I intend to understand the Demon King's personality, but mostly, she's always displeased.
Well, if a foreign substance like me clings to the soul, of course she will be displeased.
Even if that is left out, this person's bottom of the feeling is always boiled.

The world is hated, endless anger.

It's the anger that I can't help thinking that why she don't have the "Wrath" skill.
When I think that she kept this much anger in the bottom of her feelings since the old times, I admire the extraordinary patience.

But, finally, the patience was at the limit.
That's why, the Demon King bestirs herself.
I appeared there.

The Demon King have no choice but to move.
She thought that she would act to the extent to incite the Demons while seeing the state for a while, but the existence called me didn't allow it.
Even if she abandons everything, she must eliminate me.
And, at this place visited as a part of the action, she received the Earth Dragons' interference for some reason.

『Oldest Divine Beast, we don't understand why are you aiming at a person. We don't, but we can guess that you are cornered. Is that person cornering you? Or, is it just our wrong guess?』

The Demon King's displeasure increases.
Like venting her anger, I mean, I'm the person concerned, the attack becomes stronger.

『That person is a strong person who defeated our brethren. It is not an existence that you can harm easily now』
「That's why, the Dragon species is always like this」

The Demon King grumbled as she was disgusted.

『The strong person is a precious existence to that extent. That person especially, reached to the extent that it can defeat our brethren in a short time』

Precious?
Me?

「Nai wa」
Nai wa

Hmm?
The Demon King and I who become speechless.
After a while, The Demon King scratched her head hard.

「So? After all, you don't have the intention to withdraw, right?」
『Of course. We are included in the old ones that should be perished. Stop the Oldest Divine Beast. There is no better stage than this』
「Just be carried away as you please. I will only bite and tear everything」

The Demon King moves.
The Dragons also move at the same time.

The Dragons activate the skill.
"Divine Dragon Barrier".
The powerful unrivaled absolute defense skill that has the effect of the magic obstruction of the Dragon species and the physical wall.
The most troublesome point of this skill is, let alone magic, but the effect of all skills is negated.
In order to destroy this barrier, there's nothing but to either use pure physical ability to break it or hold down the obstruction with the power more than that.
In other words, either way, the only method is to overpower it.
It's an extremely outrageous skill that it won't even be a match if the power to break this barrier is not owned.

Besides, the barrier activate now is not an ordinary barrier.
It's an original barrier that has "Space Magic" mixed in it.
The multiple barrier by the combined skill that the Earth Dragons newly think out.

The Demon King's "Space Magic" level is low.
In other words, she doesn't have the means to break the "Space Magic".

In addition, the Earth Dragons don't attack assertively, but retreating like escaping while keeping a fixed distance.
Hey, the escape prevention "Great Demon King" skill is not working.
Ah, the escape obstruction of the "Great Demon King" only shows its effect when the opponent leaves more than the fixed distance or when the opponent tries to Transfer.
I see.
That's why, the Earth Dragons are keeping a fixed distance.

I mean, isn't this a great chance?
Yosh.
Let's advance the erosion before it's too late.
Prepare yourself, Maou.
Know that the true enemy is not the Earth Dragons, but me.

It was decided.

    1. Yeah, I guess their souls are fusing a lot now?

    2. Just gotta feel bad for the Demon Lord being fused with body in charg

      Delete
    3. It's more of a take over than a fusion but the take over reached a point there they can't really separate anymore. Now one of them must destroy the other and Demon King can't destroy body in charge directly so she's at a massive disadvantage.

      Delete
    4. If you ask me it's like fusing of the soul , the demon king would remain conscious but at the same time she won't oppose the main since she will recognize herself as part of the main body once the erosion is complete

  4. I hope body in charge does not loose her conection to the main body!

  5. Nice nice. Good progression that the personalities start differing, I like that. But main body...is like the last wise? Hahahaha. Thanks for the chapter anyway

  8. bahaha, the Demon King already eroded to the extent she said 'Nai wa'

    ReplyDelete
  9. So body in charge is fusing with the Demon king? I wonder does that mean that when a beings soul is captured they merge with the will that captured them and become independent? As that's what these chapters seem to be indicating. If Queen in charge's words are any indication the wills loyalty is that Kukumo can absorb them. I wonder what body in charge+demon king will produce?

    1. A Very pitiful existence.
      since she can look at the of memories both Ariel and kumo-ko she's neither of them but something else.

      But Ariel having several hundred years worth of memories vs kumo-ko's 16 - 18 years of memories

  13. so.....demon king is being eroded by body in charge wich was always in the bottom of the wills...

    Nai wai...

    kumoko, you should had send magic in charge, and body in charge to a queen kumoko~

    even if they are you, but...for some reason why is only body in charge the one that loses feed back to main body?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The demon king is the only one with a "will" right? the soul of body in charge is changing... I think.

      Delete
    2. I think its on the lines of the Demon Lord changing to be more similar to kumo-ko.
      And remember Queen in charges is not technically kumo-ko anymore. but she is the former Queen that just so extremely similar to kumo-ko

      Delete
    3. No she's still one of Kumoko's parallel wills. She just gained a sense of self. Before she was just a projection of Kumoko but by eating the Queen she basically gained her own soul and a sense of self. Since the queen was apparently little more than a machine this has very little influence on her so she's still basically a projection of Kumoko. But again she now has her own sense of self seperate from the main body.

      Now in the case of the demon king since she has her own complete will she might influence body in charge a bit more. But it probably won't be much because even if she gains the demon lords memories it seems like they view those memories more like a book or something rather than their own.

      So it's not that they become that person but what remains of that person does influence them at least a bit.

  14. Ehhhh??!! So Kumoko really did possessing the Maou body?! And Shirou eally is Kumoko ol bodyy?!
    .....Nai Wa...

  15. Well technically the Demon Lord is still Ariel. the two of them are just going to be one weird unholy child of the Demon Lord and body in charge.*shudder*

  16. sure absolute might and stats are scary, but the thing thats scariest of all isnt how strong something is or can be, but a force that can attack you , and even take you over without being able to be stopped.

    6. really isn't a spoiler. More so, what the hell made you think Kuro was magic in charge? cause the queens black? Are you just assuming everyone in the future is secretly Kumoko?

    7. Okay guys cool it. Arnold stopped posting spoilers a while ago so stop riding his ass everytime he makes a comment! This is becoming more of a problem than the spoilers were and that is saying something.

      @Andre B Maybe that is going to be the final plot twist. The future stories is actually just Kumoko acting out the story using eveyones bodies!

  24. So... Good god. The Maou in those earlier 'present day' war chapters was Kumoko?! And she aimed to purposefully kill the Hero. Why did she...? To pass it on to Shu? So she is out there as the Maou with Body in Charge, the Queen who killed the Hero who is Magic in Charge. And the wonderful babies and other wills that have probably taken over the other Queens?

    My god. Kumoko has become amazing! I love how this story is all flowing like this. Where you can look back and see 'present day' stuff and realize... holy cow that was her!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i think she killed the hero becuase she wants a weaker hero, just so she can posses the body with some will, or she wants a female hero to have only female bodys or something else that i don't know what it is.

      Delete
  25. The queens had little wills so Kumoko's Will received small affect but not Demon King.
    I wonder that by the time body in charge eroded DemonKing will she turn into completely new identity freed from Kumoko link.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Pls correct me if i'm wrong but at this point i think that 16 years old girl that we knew doesn't exist anymore. There are one that almost gone crazy for recive large amout of infomation(main body). One that fuse with other soul(maou incharge). And one that seem to have her own freedom(queen incharge) right?

    1. And thanks! For this chapter it is a smooth like it is your own novel not just guessing translation like some other translator. You are doing a great job! Please keep translating it until the end.

      Delete
    2. Giving that she's been in the labyrinth for like two years I'd say she's 18? 19?
      So she's practically an adult already

      Delete
    3. Nah she still exists as you see her normal behavior from time to time. But now she knows that this world isn't all fun and games and if she wants to complete her objective she can't screw around.

      So basically isn't not that old Kumoko is gone it's just that she finally got truly serious. Before Taboo she was just living everyday one at a time without thinking too much about what to do afterwards besides a vague goal of maybe contacting people eventually.

      Delete
  27. Considering that Maou-in-charge is very talkative, it seems that both wills got combined.

  30. Arnold... Just to clarify Kumo has 3 parallel will right? 2 magic in charge and 1 body in charge. So if body in charge is erroding the Demon King which of the two magic in charge is currently occupying the Queen who escaped?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. on one of those tranlated chapter she had 7 wills(not included the main body information-in-charge) i think? and the one that "occups" the 1 queen is probably the first magic-in-charge.

      Delete
    2. She should have a total of 8 right now but she's not going to make any new ones because apparently they become completely different people from her.

      Information in charge is the main body and magic in charge number one is in the Queen

      Delete
  31. damn sooo close to her becoming an arachne! I don't mean to sound demanding and I certainly don't expect you to keep it up but I really hope you do a big release or two so we can get to Arachne Kumoko.

    I just really want to get to the point I can picture her with a face! Plus reaching Arachne will be like a major mile stone for her.

  35. Just thought about something ridiculous that was said earlier on.

    "「Yeah. However, the thrown Queen Taractect got wounded considerably. That might be useless for a while」
    「If we want to defeat the Demon King, now is the best time?」
    「No. Even if that can't be used, the Demon King is strong. It's better to judge that it's just one force that decrease and the action is limited」"

    Most high level monsters tend to regenerate rather quickly. Even if a Queen was wounded it would have only been down for a few hours at best. That's before the healing magic and medicine synthesis that high level poison users tend to know. Assuming they think it's a regular Queen what's the logic behind those statements? Or was the Queen killed and they know that it'll be reborn as a small version?

    1. Incidentally they also think the demon lord is a weak normal demon Lord

    2. because oka who suggest the attacking plan know nothing. and pothimas didn't care to elaborate it? or pothimas is just as fool as what he said.

    3. If that Queen shares skills with Kumoko and Kumoko takes the Demon Lord's stats then I don't even see how they harmed the Queen. When the Flame and Corrosion resistances merge they'll probably reach nullity. That leaves only Light as damage she'll take within the system. She'll also have years to work on it.

      Delete
  36. it was probably assumed that that was a normal queen, and besides, while its normal for a poison user to know medice synthesis, most monster don't use it that way...

    Don't you remember how surprised where the adventurers when kumoko used treatment and medicine techniques~ ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They were mostly surprised because Kumoko was helping them and not eating them. From the Greater Taratect level and up monsters are smart enough to use magic. Obviously a myth rank monster like the Queen would be able to and smart enough to use medical synthesis and treatment magic.

  38. So I don't understand what Ariel's appearance is like. I think it went over that too quickly without being descriptive enough. It seems that she has a queen spider form but doesn't she also have a human morph form too?

    Can someone elaborate on this?

    I felt it was so vague that I got confused.
