Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Chapter S27

S27.
The Remnants.


S27 The Remnants of the Nightmare

That is on the rock.
The eight red eyes watch me coldly.
The size is not very big.
But, the presence is larger than any other monsters that I have seen so far.

I can't move.
The others are the same too.
We can't move even an inch at all like we hardened.
It seems that our hearts have been tightly held by the figure of the white spider monster.

[Hero?]

Suddenly, a voice is heard.
It's not as a sound.
It was Telepathy.
It's not something turned to me.
I only tapped the Telepathy that's sent to someone.

[Hero]

And, that 'someone' was there before I know it.
It was all over the place.

[Ruler?]
[Ruler]
[Ruler]
[Impossible to appraise?]
[Impossible to appraise]
[Impossible to appraise]
[Ruler?]
[Ruler]
[Ruler]
[Reincarnated people?]
[Reincarnated people]
[Reincarnated people]
[But, weak?]
[Weak]
[Weak weak]

The voice of Telepathy that sounds here and there.
Before I know it, the floor, the wall, the ceiling, they were everywhere.
Countless red eyes.
As far as I can see, they are white.

My thought stops because of the overwhelmed scene.
No, think.
These guys make full use of the language with proper intention.
There is an inexcusable word in those words.

「Do you know about the reincarnators!?」

I make up my mind and speak.
Although I know that Basgas-san have his eyes opened wide, I must ask this by all means.

[I know it]
[I know it]
[There's no way that I don't know]

The answers came back.
Mutual understanding is possible.
These guys are not monsters without intelligence.

「Why do you know it?」

[Master]
[Master]
[Mother]
[Mother]

「Is the Master a reincarnated person?」

[You will know soon]
[You will know it soon]
[You will know it immediately]
[You will know at once]

「What do you mean?」

[Declaration]
[Sentence]
[The beginning of end]
[The world starts]
[The world ends]

The white shadows gradually disappear.

「Wait! What do you mean!?」

[There's no meaning to know it]
[You will die anyway]
[Everyone will die]
[Struggle and survive]

I felt that we were told so with the meaning of overlooking us till then.
And, the Remnants of the Nightmare disappeared in front of us.




「You fool!」

Basgas-san's fist catches my face.
I received the fist contentedly without resisting.
Hyrinth-san pinions Basgas-san who was going to strike me.

「I should have said it! That Lad's comrades might die by your thoughtless actions!」

Basgas-san shouts his anger while being pinioned.
It's the force that seems to break loose from Hyrinth-san at any moment.

「Now, now. Because it end up safe like this, isn't it fine?」

Sensei intercedes, and Basgas-san stops moving.
Although it seems that his anger still haven't settled down, it doesn't seem that he will act violently any further.

「I'm sorry. I have something that I must ask by all means」
「Even if everyone dies?」

I'm stared.
When it's said so, I can't say anything.

「It's fine if Lad dies by yourself. But, don't drag other people into it. If you want to suicide, do it yourself」
「Basgas-san, you're saying too much」

Although Sensei chided Basgas-san, Basgas-san is more right.
For the reasons that I want to know, I took an arbitrary action against the other party who's the dangerous Remnants of the Nightmare.

Basgas-san pushes Hyrinth-san aside.
Did he judge that he won't act violently anymore? Hyrinth-san released Basgas-san easily.
Basgas-san lean on the rock in a slightly remote place, and sat down.
If I see properly, his expression is bad.
Basgas-san said that he encountered the Nightmare in the old days.
The trauma might have been stimulated.

When I see the others again, Katia and Anna sit down, and Hyrinth-san has a slight pale face.
Only Sensei who looked calm.

「Are you all right?」

I talk to Katia and Anna who sat down.

「I can't stand up」
「I'm ashamed」

They look up at me with the face that seems to cry.
The goose bumps stood too, so they are very scared and it's unpleasant.
Even though they have a relatively small build as a monster, being surrounded by big spiders is of course unpleasant.
Even I felt unpleasant, so the woman group is all the more.

「How can Sensei keep calm?」
「No. I'm not calm, you know? Although the appearance is cute, the contents were slightly creepy」
「Cute....」

Ah, that was not a character making, but she really liked it.
After all, Sensei likes strange things since the previous existence.
Although I thought that it's a part of the character making, it seems that she seriously like something like spiders.
It's unexpected.

「By the way, what do you think about what those children said?」

Many mysterious words that the Remnants of the Nightmare said.

「I don't know. There's too little information」

In the first place, what on earth are those monsters called as the Remnants of the Nightmare?
Because they found out our information, it's certain that they have a high level "Appraisal" skill.
In addition, the intelligence that can understand human speech.
The stealth nature that gathered that much without being noticed by me.
The cooperation between comrades making full use of the Telepathy.
Even a fragment has such ability.
What if it becomes a fight....
I don't think that I can win.

「The beginning of end. Everyone will die, huh?」

The nightmarish ominous words.
Only that was stuck in my head and didn't leave.

  6. Voices in one's head? Creepy. More so because they're short and repetitive.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, that's just the cooperation thing. One says what it thinks, others confirm it or possibly give a different opinion. The short words are because very close cooperation doesn't need long explanations so the barest minimum is enough for everyone to understand.
      When they seem to add things like with the you'll know it soon or the declaration sequence it's that one spider gives an explanation and several others feel the need to expand and clarify what was said so the meaning becomes clearer.

      Like two women in the kitchen. One says 'Ratatuille'.
      The other says 'tomatoes', the first adds 'zucchini', then the second 'eggplant'. Then maybe the first 'Onions?' and the second 'Onions.'. Followed by all the spices, knifes, locations of pots and pans and whatever. (This happened when my friend and I were cooking and her bf stood nearby and didn't understand what the heck we were saying)

    2. Nice analogy :) but it still makes it creepy since they are voices in your head.

  13. Basgas is a bit too harsh. They are ambushed by that Remnant Army, their chance to die right there is excellent. Thanks to his trying to converse that they get left alone.

    Although he's right in overall, in that particular situation he's wrong.

    1. The man has a trauma for spiders

    2. to be fair, they were just observing them to begin with. They didn't intend to attack in the first place. Shun didn't "talk them down or anything" they were just appraising them.

      Delete
    3. More like they didnt even feel the need to kill them since they saw he was a hero and that his status was really low they might of just looked seen him as garbage that can be left alone.

  17. i doubt they are from the first 999 batch
    10 years have passed, they should have evolved into something even more ridiculous, lol

    ReplyDelete
  18. The babies are slightly younger than reincarnate person so they must be 10 something year old(assume they are the first gen).
    Their stat must be fu*king higher than Shun who just received Hero title for couple years.
    But if they can't peek into Shun's stat how do they know he's Hero and he's weak?
    This is not the same as when Kumoko got appraisaled before she can block appraisaled , Shun always use his ruler to block appraisal, didn't he?
    No way, they have Wisdom skill!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Shun only hides taboo with his camouflage skill. So they could still appraise himl. Oka on the other hand is a ruler and considering shun was apraise skill was blocked before, we can guess she used her ruler's authority to block it just like our kumoko

      Delete
    2. Shun has the hide skill. He uses it to hide his taboo ans suspicious skills. It would be to obvious he was a ruler if he was constantly blocking appraisal. This way they can look at his stats and see the hero title and all his "good" skills and know who he is.

      I beleive it was stated earlier that sensei has the auto block on. Back when they didn't know who was controlled or not she turned her block off to prove she wasn't mind controlled.

  19. 4 chapter today? Amazing! Thanks man!

  20. hmm from the way they talk about shun will know the truth are they able to bypass to see his Taboo skill?
    [You will know soon]

    well this can be interpreted as he will meet with Kumoko sooner or latter

  21. So all of her children have gained enough intelligence to communicate? Awesome! And it's interesting how some see her as their master and others see her as their mother. In any case besides the obvious things like high level appraisal and telepathy they also seem to have mastered shadow magic and sneaking skills.

    I wonder if any of them have reached arch rank yet? It would have been awesome if Shun had been just a bit more careless and appraised one of them so we'd get an idea of what the Kumoko armies stats are.

  22. Sensei withholding information as usual I see.

    1. Actually Sensei is probably not that bad. Judging from what we've seen of her and the other elf there is a good chance sensei herself is being manipulated by the other elves.

  24. When i'm playing broodmother in dota 2, it reminds me of kumoko and i silently scream.

  25. i wonder if Oka's Taboo reached lv10 or not, it seems she doesn't know the real truth that made Kumoko wanted to massacre all humans, demons, elves,...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well Taboo is actually pretty hard to level up. Remember Kumoko only got it from eating her sibling, evolving several times, and getting several ruler skills. If her Taboo was only gained from one or two ruler skills and she never did anything really bad then Taboo would only gain small proficiency through level up and it would take ages to reach level 10 on that alone.
