Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Chapter 58

Chapter 58.

58 The defensive battle of 100 meters above ground ④

Thanks to the shedding of the level up, my body and leg separated from the monkey's hand.
The monkey's hand gripped the 2 layers of old skin.
Although most of the monkeys were knocked down to the ground due to the big fall of threads, the monkeys that clung to the simple home are still in good health.
However, their bodies have already been caught in the simple home's thread.
I add more threads so that they can't move and I finish them off with "Poison Fang".

After finishing off the last one of them, I feel relieved.
Although it's not over yet, I overcame a wave.

I whipped my heart that becomes less tense.
It's not over yet.
The monkeys are not exterminated yet.
I must not relax my attention until they are exterminated.

I go out of the simple home immediately and see the state below.
A terrible scene was there.

There was the ruin of the monkeys caught in the threads struck the ground without being able to move and the figures of the crushed monkeys.
And, in the appalling scene, the monkeys that survived didn't lose their fighting spirit.

I set up a new thread on the wall immediately.
The monkeys have not given up yet.
They will attack again as soon as the preparations are in order.
I must prepare before that.

The monkeys' reinforcement are still coming.
Really, how many of you are there....
Give me a break!

And, there was a thing that must not be in the reinforcement.

『Bugragratch LV3 Failed to appraise its status』
『Bugragratch LV4 Failed to appraise its status』
『Bugragratch LV6 Failed to appraise its status』

The mouth similar to a huge crocodile.
From the mouth, I can see the countless brutal fangs similar to the saw.
About twice the length of the monkey.
It's also fat.
The deformed huge monkey was there.

That was the first monster I saw in this area.
The monkey's species name is Anogratch.
I should have noticed that the names are similar.
That huge monkey is the monkey's evolved form.
The monster that must not come over as the monkey's reinforcement has came.

The number of those guys who appeared slowly are 3.
When I look at their levels, they are lower, but since they are the higher rank monsters, I can't rely on the level even if it's low.
In the first place, even the monkey is a powerful enemy when I fight it directly, so there's no way that the evolved form is weak.
Judging from its fairly brutal appearance, I should recognized it that it's stronger than the monkey.
As expected, it's not the Earth Dragon class, but still, there are 3 monsters more powerful than the monkey.
The degree of difficulty increased again.

It's an instant that I was dumbfounded and stopped movement.
My consciousness was pulled back to the reality forcibly because the monkeys that survived have started to move.
The monkeys avoided the lump of threads that fell down, took a big detour and they begun climbing the wall from the left and right again.
From the movement, I understood that they are considerably cautious of the threads.
It's really a tough opponent.

I add a thread while paying attention to the huge monkeys.
The huge monkeys have not moved yet.
Is the cooperation with the monkeys not so positive?
Although it's good if it is, I cannot be optimistic.
I must always be careful about their movement.

The monkeys doesn't seem to throw stones anymore.
There's not much effect in it and the lump of threads that fell down obstructive, so it might not be able to reach me.
It seems that they abandon the stone-throwing and devote themselves to climb the wall.
For me, that is grateful.
That worked simply.
HP is reduced, and movement is obstructed.
If there's nothing, it has not been exceeded.

There was a movement from the huge monkey.
It lifted a rock slowly.
What, rock!?
Although it just lifted it easily, that rock, isn't it that the origin of the rock that I stick in this simple home!?
It should have been buried under the ground firmly, but it was pulled easily.
It's the rock that's heavy even if it's thinly sliced, right!?
Eh, what do you want to do with the rock?
Wait a minute, why are you swinging it?
Don't tell me!?

I evacuate from the simple home in a hurry.
The rock becomes a cannonball and pierce the simple home just after that.
After the smoke cleared up, the simple home was crushed splendidly by the rock.

No way!
What power.
If I receive such a thing, I will definitely die.
Fortunately, there's no rock around the huge monkey.
That ridiculous cannonball won't fly here.

But, the final defense line which is the simple home was destroyed easily.
From here on, I must fight without the simple home.

That is bad.
Although it's a problem that I can't rely on the defense of the simple home, it's the worst that there's no footing.
Up until now, I was able to intercept the monkeys because I have a steady footing, so I can devote myself to attack.
Now without the footing, my body might fall suddenly.
Although I won't fall headlong to the ground because the thread is connected to the ceiling, it's unchanged that I have become defenseless.
If I expose such a chance, there's no way the monkeys will remain silent.

I quickly make a decision.
I don't mind that it's hastily made, I need to make a footing.
Meanwhile, I can't set up the threads in the other places, but when the monkeys approach, I won't have the time to make the footing.
If I don't make it now, I will definitely regret in the future.

The footing of the size that I can stand is completed!
I will attack the monkeys here.
The second round of the defensive battle is beginning.


  1. First? Thx for the chapter.

    1. "isn't it that the origin of the rock that I stick in this simple home!?"
      >that I have stuck at this simple home

    2. The rock is really the origin of the rock she used. In chapter 54, she just thinly cuts the rock, pull it up and stick it at the simple home. So the original rock is still at the bottom. That's also why she understood that the rock that the huge monkey lifted was the one she cut.

  3. Thanks for the chapter.

    Kumo-chan, fight-ooooooo!!!


  5. Hm, she should have enough skill points to get a new one now. SP efficiency in particular could be useful.
    The sloth-apes could be dealt with by throwing (poisoned) rocks, taking advantage of gravity. Otherwise, time to grind 'Idaten'.
    Seems pretty obvious that the monkeys are drawn by smell of their dead; a solution could be to sneak away just after leveling, when the odor doesn't cling.
    A dragon or something might come by, lured by the mountain of meat, but if the swarming behaviour wasn't a good deterrent against predators, there wouldn't be so many of them...

    1. A very very little kind of spoil but seems everyone already understands anyway.

      Those monkeys are intercepting a being which kills their kind, and will pursue a killer till the world's end with all horde. So, Kumoko's murder a monkey at the start of ark, was an easy catch but now she got it.

  6. Oh this battle is getting good! Thanks a lot! .....and now i gotta wait till tomorrow. *sigh*

  7. I'm really looking forward to the conclusion of the monkey battle!!! Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!

  8. Thanks for the chapter Turb0!

  9. Such an exciting arc! I can feel the tension in Kumoko's threads.

    My thanks to you.

  10. Thank you for the chapter and all the hard work!

  11. If she manages to defeat them all, it'll be very tasty for Kumo-chan.
