Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Chapter 188

Chapter 188.


188 I'm hungry

The middle-aged man and the Hero left.
In other words, there are no others.
Ah, loner is splendid.

{I want a detailed explanation by now}

Ah, because the Queen was there, I'm not a loner.
For the time being, I tell the details that I barged into a war after going out of the labyrinth lightly.

{Oh, Jesus}

Somehow, the Queen grieved.
If it can be held in the head, it's on the crouching level.
Why?

{Hey, main body}
What is it?
{Do you understand your situation?}
Yeah.
{If you understand it, why are you increasing the troublesome things other than the Demon King!?}
O-Oh.
It can't be helped-nen.
I was irritated-nen.
I flown into rage, and have done it-nen.
{Stop that "nen", fool!}
I'm sorry.
{Haa. For the time being, what's done is done. So, is there any possible problem that you actually barged into a war?}
Nope.
To be frank, if it's my present strength, no matter how many people attack me all at once, I can repel them with composure.
{Well, from what I heard, that seems so}
Un.
That's why, I can do anything with violence no matter how the humans' country is thrown into confusion.
Power is everything. It has become a good era.
{No, it's not the end of a century of somewhere. The order is pretty much maintained properly. If the harmful animal of somewhere don't rage}
I wonder which harmful animal is it.
{That means the only problem now is the Demon King, huh?}
Yeah.
Gyurigyuri never come in contact even if I cause such a turmoil.
{About the Demon King, do you notice?}
Ah, un.
That has mixed considerably.
{What do you think will happen?}
I don't know.
To be honest, I can't expect it.
{Is it all right?}
It's not.
It's a big problem.
{Oi}
No.
Seriously speaking, even if Maou-in-charge wins or loses, she has mixed considerably and changed, so I think that she won't be as before.
And, I can't imagine what kind of action that Maou-in-charge will take in the mixed condition.
I don't know the Demon King's personality too.
The worst case, she may be hostile.
{Right}
If that happens, there's only one way left for me.
I gain experience points in somewhere to be even a little stronger while avoiding direct confrontation.
And, reach the Administrator class.
{Can you do it?}
Un.
I mean, I think that I'm one step to there.
{Although this is something I did on my own, I gave permission to the other Queen-in-charge to advance the erosion}
Nice.
If the Queens are unified, the goal comes into view.
{What should I do from now on?}
For the time being, wait for recovery.
If the Demon King moves, make full use of the Transfer to run away.
{Roger}

The Demon King is still fighting against the Earth Dragons in the bottom layer.
Although the Earth Dragons are holding out, it seems to end soon.
Whether they can last for another day or not.
However, because the Demon King can't use the Transfer, even if the Earth Dragons are defeated, it won't become dangerous immediately.
Time is needed to rise from the bottom layer.
If I think including that, I still have a few days left.
I want to do what I can do in the meanwhile.

And, there's something that I must do now.
My SP has decreased considerably by the evolution influence.
Because I was waiting for recovery before evolution, there were not so many stores of the SP.
The stock of "Satiation" empties, and has decreased to about half of my maximum SP now.

I must eat.
But, I don't want to take the food in the home now.
The food here is the Queen's food, so it's better to have her eat.
So, it's necessary to go to secure food by myself.

Hmm.
Because I evolved into the Arachne, I have two mouths that are the human mouth and the spider mouth, but which should I eat with?
If it's as before, it's the spider mouth, but I'm interested that what will it be if I eat with the human mouth.
I mean, this human is not a papier mache, right?
The digestive organs are there properly, right?
It seems that I have the five senses properly, and because I can think even in the human, I might have the internal organs properly.

Speaking of the five senses, will the taste change if I eat with the human?
I don't think that the sense of taste in the spider and the human are the same.
In order to confirm it, I must get foods.

If possible, I want to eat sweet foods, but I can't go to the town anymore.
Because I have done it.
Although the report probably has not reach the town yet, I won't be worshiped as Divine Beast-sama in the future.
Although I saved them thoroughly, I have returned the harm that was about the same as it.
When thinking about that, that means I have received the reward of doing it for free.
It's even.
Well, even if I think so, the other party will not think so.
I'm sure that they are thinking that they are betrayed.

I will pass on going back to the battlefield.
If I return to the battlefield unexpected after this and continue the massacre, the position of Hero-kun who returned might worsen.
There are still many parts that are doubtful that he disappears with me and returned safely.
Although I don't know how will the treatment to Hero-kun, let's have expectations in the abilities of the middle-aged man there.
I wonder can I have expectations.
I became uneasy.

Well, even if Hero-kun dies, it's not a hard blow on me, and if it's like that, it can't be helped.
It's wasteful if I'm forced to say.

Well then, let's go to procure food.
Fortunately, I have something to rely on.
The three huge meats that I marked it and left it all this time.

Well then, let's go for a revenge match.
Aiming at the Earth Dragon trio, Transfer.

  1. I have to say, the conversation was completely underwhelming. Though I expected it with kumoko's loner - skill(I mean that should be a skill right, with kumo having master level in it), I was still hoping. Two problems however, she needs to up her level but with what? She'll need to hunt sentient beings I suppose. And how will she reach admin rank? I'm sure that doesn't have a requirement along the lines of - reach level 250- or something, otherwise semi-sentient beings such as 'mother' would become admins at some point.

    1. You know for some reason I think queen in charge would be able to talk to others relatively well unlike the main body

    2. her level is low but she say she's close. so not the level.

      let's check her skill...

    3. Well I think she just have to hit divinity area expansion level 10

    4. B/c the queen in charge kind of fused with the queen she technically has centuries of experience making here more mature

  2. Queen-in-charge really have mature personality than main body... it just like a mother who scold their daughter ~ well... Queen-in-charge technically her mother....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, as described earlier, the fusion has caused the Paralell wills to become actual separate existences, only sharing overlying mentality and status. They're not really the same being anymore.

  3. Wow the queen......is like smart non idiotic mama kumo-ko..... well actually she is technically the Queen.
    I really like that this one seems to be a realist

    1. I think they are actually the same in that respect. Mother-in-charge just has the advantage of having the perspective of an observer. Main Kumoko would probably notice this stuff herself if she wasn't busy dealing with it all herself.

      it's like with horror movies it's easier for the audience to understand the situation than the people in it and in reality the audience would probably make a lot of the same mistakes if they were actually in that situation.

  4. {About the Demon King, do you notice?}
    Ah, un.
    That has mixed considerably.


    So the current Demon Lord is a mix of both body in charge and Ariel.
    ....... oh god that's going to be some kind of pitiful creature

    1. The mixed will probably become a mean stepmother who work her stepchildren Kumoko aka Shiro and queens to dead.

    2. i´m also starting to think, that the demonlord will be maou in charge and shiro the mainbody, but i don´t think i will like the reason behind it xD

    3. I wonder does kuro knows that kumoko-chan is basically pulling the strings of the demon king...and if kumoko is alive killing her will be very tricy cuz she can just lay a egg and have here reborn

      Delete
    4. If its kuro he would be very easily be able to kill her.

      But that begs the question why they're all there together in the first place.

      All three of them seem highly unlikely to join sides yet they're all together.

      Delete
    5. kuro can´t do much to Kumo the moment she becomes an administrator and ca 15 years in the future, she should be an administrator by then xD

  6. Kumoko-chan talks to herself a lot, huh? Can't she just practice talking with the Queen or something? And by the way, I think Ariel worked only in the dark, right? So she is like, the true Maou, lived for long time and no one knows about her. She'll then be a new face, going to take over demon's force, proclaim herself as the new Maou, once Kumoko merges with her completely and becomes talkative. Seems about right, hm.

    1. Nai wai~ She's the loner type, you know~ Talking with mouth is still talking. Impossible things are impossible. Telepathy is not talking, which is why she can converse nicely with both D and G.

    1. I dont think they dont want to help they just stupid enough to think that they can beat ariel. Ig. Did you consider the thife that mug your kinnapper is your help? If they succeed thier traget you're next victim.

      Delete
    2. no, Arthit, remember what the leader of the earth dragons said?

      They intend to lose. Their stalling Ariel until Kumoko finishes her attack and intend to die in the process. They said it was so the next generation can take over.

      Delete
    3. Oh then i'm wrong again. Thank for correction . i though that they just mean to kill her or atlease week her til someone in thier group can come and kill her to finally make dragon age.
      But how did they know that kumoko is gonna take over Ariel body? They can see Ariel status and see "under out side system attack"?

    1. far to weak. The weakest of the ones stalling Ariel has their stats in the 7000's. Each of the trio only in 3000's. Remember the bottom layer and lower layer are two different levels. The trio on the lower layer aren't strong enough to join the dragons on the bottom layer.

    2. they might be still pretty young, for earth dragons :p

  13. soo.... who is who now? wasnt the demon lord our mc? and the mother is now taken over by a split personality of the original which has become an entire diffrent existence ??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You have to understand it from the viewpoint of kumoko. Her parallel will allowed her to split her mind to handle different tasks at the same time. However, as that ability evolved those different 'minds' allowed themselves to separate from the main body and began to think differently from the main body. Basically, the parallel will is a part of the soul that invades another creature and battles their mind/soul for dominance in the body. 'Mother' wasn't really a sentient being so she gets taken over quite quickly, and the other parallel wills get send over to the other queens and the demon lord that are in contact with 'mother' through a skill that allows control. Thus, the queens and DM are in the process of being overtaken (except the first which is overtaken). However, as they overtake them they take on a part of the originals 'memories/abilities and habits. Thus, the queen kumoko behaves differently from the original because it includes characteristics of the queen. The same for DM, however here the DM has sentience and struggles back causing a back and forth in which either the will of kumoko or the DM can win. But they both take on habits of the other while they do so.

  16. I'm confused. Why do people keep saying Kumo is Shiro? Who is Shiro? Did I miss something?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Kumoko is Shiro literally (because she's white, white is shiroi on japanese).

      Shiro is a mysterious commander of Demon army. The battle with demon army described in unnambered chapters, read them, if you skipped. She is described as white girl with covered eyes. She killed Julius the Hero (Julius is the person she saved just now, but battle took place at the time of S chapters, in the future, maybe around 10-15 years ahead).

      The question, why everyone are saying that Kumoko is Shiro - it is an acclaimed spoiler, which becomes pretty obvious now (Kumoko - white - shiroi - Shiro-chan).

      Yeah too much spoilers said. .... But Joshua-san reach the current chapters very-very soon, so there will be no more spoilers.

      Usually author issues 1 chapter per day as for now, with a very rare exclusions.

    2. The mysterious white girl thats always around the Demon Lord and closes her eyes all the time.( 10+ years in the future from now)

      ...... have you not been reading up till now?

      Delete
    3. Really, your logic is flawed with just saying shiro is kumo just because of color, any one of kumokos children that inherited her appearances and evolved into an arachne would have a white appearance u know.
      Since shiro was called a masterpiece its very possible its kumokos offspring that advanced to a strong level(it has been 10 years after all).
      And if u think that 10 odd years have passed the story would be pretty shit if shes still stuck at a point where she has to serve as an underling which is pretty much a puppet(because she just obeys everything).
      But if u think about it as obeying her mother then it makes more sense.
      And u dont take the demon king (ariels) personality into account since she seems the overly serious type she wouldnt speak like that demon king(in the war chapters).
      Anyway when it comes to the elf war chapters which is around 10 chapters long we'll find out for sure who the demon king is since kumoko overheard her general subordinates talking about collaborating with the elves she will probably go there herself around the time the fight begins and make herself known to the world and to her classmates, shun,sensei,baka yugo.

      Delete
    4. Also a nickname like shiro would only be given by a japanese(reincarnated person) so unless its a self proclaimed nickname(not very possible) or theres some random reincarnated person who became the demon king(even less possible) then the people of this world would just call her white theres no reason to purposely use japanese in her nickname like that right?

    5. yay! more spoilers!!!!!!!!!

  17. Shiro is one of the general's in the demon king camp...my question is if she is shiro does that mean she can transform form arachne to humanoid?

    1. no, the dragons shes on about are the 5000 ish status ones which she encountered alltogether and ran from in the layer just below bottom layer while her statuses were around 10k each.
      The dragons that are on the bottom layer are all 10k status+ and are the strongest ones.

    2. That doesn't seem right because the demon king seems to be a talkative person and Shiro doesn't talk at all.

      If we go by your logic does not only changing their bodies but changing their personalities also

      Delete
    3. It seems to me that it's going to be a bit more complicated than that. Perhaps the demon king is going to be entirely different than Kumo and the current Ariel. It's also possible that somewhere along the way the Arachne body is going to be split in two to create Shiro, since it's mentioned that she now has two brains and occupies two consciousnesses.

  20. Since shun's ruler of kindness resurrect's someone in exchange for leveling up his taboo...won't kindness be a useless ruler skill?

    1. The powers themselves or just the effects of the title that they get.
      The real thing with ruler abilities is the " interference authority" that they get.

      The main power is nothing more than a face.
      The real ability comes from the authority they wield and the MA area interference right
      The max. Taboo will teach them all they need to know about how they use ruler skills
