Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Blood 16

Blood 16.


Blood 16 Along the way

Finally, finally, we have reached the place where there's people.
It was long to here.
It was painful to here.
It was harsh to here.
Finally, I can take a rest.

The way to here was really steep.
Just when I thought that I finally reached the proper road after walking the roadless forest endlessly and going through the meadows where the grass is higher than a human's height, I have to increase the pace.
I seriously thought that I might die of overwork at this age.

If Shiraori didn't make me learn the skill called Magic Combat Act in the forest, I might not be able to reach here.
The Magic Combat Act that consumes MP to strengthen the physical strength.
Shiraori made me learn it forcibly.
In the morning, just when I thought that she suddenly hold my hand, she manipulates my magical power arbitrarily and activates the Magic Combat Act.

「Maintain it like that」

Because the Magic Combat Act was almost canceled immediately when she separates her hand, I had a hard fight to maintain it as I'm told.
As a result, I was able to acquire the Magic Combat Act skill.

Thanks to that, the movement along the way became easier to some extent.
However, because the Magic Combat Act consumes MP, I can't use it continuously. And, because the pace was raised when I used the Magic Combat Act, I don't feel that it became too easy.

Nevertheless, I wonder how high is her skill level of the Magic Manipulation to be able to manipulate other people's magical power?
At least, because I can't manipulate other people's magical power, it's certain that her skill level is higher than me.
Although it's impossible by all means, her skill level has not reached max level, right?
Certainly not.

At the meadows, I have to advance while push my through the tall grass that has grown thickly all around with my hands.
Although I thought that why there's no route that's a little more proper, we moved through the trackless path in the forest, and we might be advancing the place where people don't come.

Power is considerably needed to push my way through the grass, and I acquired the skill called 「Powerful」 before I know it.
Moreover, because I touched the hard grass bare-handed, everywhere was cut, and the Automatic HP Recovery recovered it repeatedly.
Thanks to that, I acquired the skills called 「Life」 and 「Sturdy」, and the skill level of the Automatic HP Recovery rose too.

And, as usual, the meal is poisoned.
Furthermore, the strength of the poison strengthens every day.
The only relief is that the ingredients are normal, and although it's terribly bitter, it's possible to eat it.
When I ate the poisoned menu several times, I received a title called 「Gross Feeder」.

It seems that title can be acquired by taking a specific action.
I hear that there's no loss to take it because skills can be received for free and there's a lot of titles that have special effects.
But, something like Gross Feeder, the sound is bad.

The skills received by the Gross Feeder are 「Poison Resistance」 and 「Corrosion Resistance」.
The Poison Resistance was unified with the Abnormal Condition Resistance that I had originally.
According to Shiraori, the important one seems to be Corrosion Resistance.
Even though she's always taciturn, she talked about the fear of the corrosion attribute considerably talkative at this time.
I'm told that it's the attribute that rules death, and when a person receives the attack endowed with that attribute, the body seems to become dust and disappears.
Moreover, it's a dangerous attribute that if the attacking side doesn't have the resistance, it will even cause damage to the attacking side.
Because the power is too high and it's an attribute that the resistance can't be raised easily, the Gross Feeder title that gives the resistance is valuable.
By the way, it seems that the effect of the Gross Feeder title just makes the person harder to have an upset stomach.
It's plainly effective.

As a matter of course, Merazofis who had ate the same meal as me also received the Gross Feeder title.
Because Merazofis is taking the same actions as me, it seems that his skill rose as much as me.
However, because Merazofis who's an adult has the composure unlike me who's a baby, it seems that his rising way is more lenient than me.

Merazofis drinks that red liquid passed by Shiraori whenever taking a meal.
The contents are the blood of the Elves.
Shiraori ate at the first day.. Let's stop it, any further than this makes me feel sick.
Anyway, Merazofis must take blood regularly unlike me.
It seems that anythings is fine if it's blood.
That's why, Ariel-san proposed that when the blood of the Elves finished, he should just hunt a monster suitably and drink the blood.
But, after all, there seemed to be resistance in drinking blood for Merazofis, and it won't finished because he only drank it little by little.

However, because the amount of the blood drunk was little, Merazofis turned paler day by day.
Even if I ask him, he only said 「I'm alright」, but it was obvious that he's weakening.
Having said that, I can't force him to drink blood.
I who don't need to drink blood even though I'm the same Vampire have only drank Merazofis's blood.
I don't think that I want to drink.
Even if such me told him to drink, it's not persuasive.
Although I might have the right to say it if I tasted the same suffering, that means I must also drink blood.
I didn't have the resolution.
That's why, it's a godsend that we reached the town before Merazofis really falls.

Incidentally, I was made to run after getting out to the highway.
Of course, it's only limited when there's no people.
I acquired the 「Dash」 skill.
The skill level of the Magic Combat Act rose, and because I kept using the Magic Combat Act, the skill level of Magic Perception and Magic Manipulation rose, and the Magic Amount, MP Consumption Down, and MP Recovery speed skills are newly acquired.

After coming this far, as expected, Shiraori's aim comes into view.
I think that Shiraori was trying to increase my skills.
Although I don't know what for, is it to increase the means of self-defense?
Then, I must express my gratitude.
Although I don't, when thinking of the painful way to here, I can't do such a thing obediently.
For the time being, now that the journey like hell has done, there's one thing I want to say.
Let me rest at ease for today.

    1. In comparison with shiraori this is heaven. She don't even need to mind her red sp point. Though sure it wasn't a good idea to ask the baby bodied karen to do the same.
      Also shiraori wasn't born with those abundant sp points.

    4. now now, she remembered. It was one of her first thoughts after waking up, wondering what happened to the new eggs she laid.

      Delete
    5. I don't think she forgot. It's just those brats are excellent enough as it is that she doesn't need to worry about them.

      I'll say this quick. but dude you need to use the "reply" button instead of the "add comment" button when you're replying to someone

      Delete
    2. Relax man. Sorry bout that but my phone browser bugged. It keep reloading the page if use that button.

      Delete
    3. also, remember not to explicitly state events in future chapters. You have to be vague or dance around it. If you just say it, then it's a spoiler. You don't post spoilers on the translators site, we have other sites for that. We just got done telling Arnold this.

      Delete
    4. Really? Weak Bladder Guy finally got it?

      ... I don't buy it. He's probably just waiting for a good chance to piss on everything again. Dude stays in my ignored list.

    5. Sorry but i don't know which one i state is a spoiler. It's pretty clear if you just read the story so far...

    6. It isn't just this one, were it could be insinuated. You've slipped a few times since you've joined us, Oblak and Koonri too. I know your excited about that chapter but it's not far off so just hold it in until then. Just keep it in mind.

    2. is it weird that I'm strangely tickled by those numbers at the end?

      Ruthless massacre count
      Devil: 10
      God: 2000000

    3. God must be superior to devil in every way.

  10. It is just as one would expect from the holder of both the demon king and hero skills. Her kindness must have a cruelty to it, truly a tsundere.

    2. Does she even still have those skills anymore?

    3. Iirc she has the power unified into her soul, but not the assistance from the system. She needs to apply effects like reinforcement or recovery manually.

  11. Muahaha, i'm loving the scenes where 2 tsunderes are being tsun to each other xD

    ReplyDelete
  12. She's not tsundere. You'll know her reason on later monologue though she did worry about her.

  13. And thus begins the legend Karate baby Sophia lol. It would be funny if a baby full of skills kicked an adult's ass.

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!!

  17. These blood chapters are a good change of peace.
    It feel fresh like at the start of the WN when kumoko was starting.
    And it is still entertaining with her point of view, since we got so accustomed to kumoko internal monologue, it's fun to guess what she's thinking.

  18. Author is a genius, I just love this novel

    1. Yeah. Making the unique mc that has vague disposition to be instantly accepted as noble girl through single chapter. The author possibly studied psychology to some extent.

  19. Thanks for the chapter! That Oni one was really REALLY nasty, though... Poor Oni...

    2. Anyway you could figure it out yourself already. Especially if you read the raws. don't make me post a big spoiler here...

    3. No but seriously though there's no mention of a love anywhere

      Delete
  20. There's a hint. Though it was vague.
    im not gonna say more... because i'm probably wrong. Will wait further blood and oni chapter first since shiraori monologue never interested in such relation but oldmen

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wtf why are the comments so different from the chapter content, and why is the chapter so short. On my end the chapter ends before they enter the town

  23. Wait, is storage space cut off from the pasage of time? Because untreated blood has a shelf life of a few hours to days. CDPA-1? What's that? Can it be eaten?

  24. Dear translator I noticed something
    Kyoya/
    His name as a general. Lass/rass is literally the author trying to "say" not "write" wrath in english but instead converting it to romanji.
    So shouldn't lass/rass be considered the wrong translation?
    Because the proper pronunciation in english should be "wrath" not "lass/rass"
    ラース = wrath

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. ラース = wrath in terms of pronunciation and sounding

      Delete
    2. Oh. Now that you mention it, it sure sounds like that. Changed it to Wrath. Thanks

      Delete
    3. I think it was intentionally made to sound like wrath while it was written differently. Well it's translator privilege to decide since wrath did sounds cool but odd as a name for me.

      Delete
    4. It's not intentional. it's actually wrath in Japanese.(i checked multiple sources)
      The translator really did get it wrong.
      And since he most likely use a machine translator that's what REALLY got wrong

      Delete
    5. The author was trying to say wrath in English while spelling it in Japanese.( this is originally for a Japanese audience not English)
      And machine translators use of very literal translation really messed things up.( especially when its in romanji format which this word was in)

      Delete
    6. Yeah i know it was written in katakana to state that foreign languange but it could be some western name like raz or rasch maybe ? Lol this really need author confirmation to decide. Until then it was translator privilege.

      Ps : sorry i wasn't rebuking you but someone else who rant about invisible spoiler.

      Delete
    7. Japanese should really change it's english class teaching to start using alphabet on their usage.

      Delete
    8. isn't enough. Gotta expand the phonemes. They hear and can say different sounds than people who were raised speaking English. So what you recognize as different sounds differs by the language you speak.

      Delete
    9. It seems EXTREMELY OBVIOUS AND EVIDENT to me that the name of that general (Kyouya) is Raz. Because that's Kyouya's name! He's called RazRaz. His brother, the hero of the goblins, was RazaRaza. Probably all his family was Raz-something. So of course Kyouya as a demon general is called GENERAL RAZ because his name is Raz!

      The fact that it sounds like "wrath" is just a little joke by the author.

      Delete
    10. It doesn't just sound like wrath
      it's written wrath ラース

      It's the translator system that mess it up

      Delete
