However, there's also individual that rarely makes nest. In that case, the danger degree springs up.
It is said that a person got caught in the nest without any preparations, the worst, it can be said that it's the end for that person. Therefore, destroying the nest in top priority when discovered it is the adventurer's basic.

  1. no kumo-chan....... =( *cries
    Anyway, on a brighter note, thanks for the chapters =)

    1. Seems like kumo-chan is around B rank atm.

    2. more like c+, b-. She still can't fight a swarm of centipedes, they climb over each others bodies to get to her, and if forcefully blocket, the entire swarm will push and possibly break the net

      well, maybe if she gets enough prep time, she could...

    3. Probably b-. She's not the type that's particularly good vs swarms anyways without prep. Using her web nets she could probably handle smaller swarms or your average B rank mob in a 1v1. Honestly, she's strongest in handling single mobs even if her prep allows her to handle besieging by many enemies in the case of a nest, and in spite of the fact that she has the powerful aoe nets her nets are still probably most useful in a 1v1 situation due to allowing the mobs to further entangle themselves by not taking up as much area of the net when being only one mob, and kumo-chan can push that advantage rather powerfully considering she has the gg tier advantage of human intelligence.

    4. I'd say she's C or maybe even D rank but like the centipedes has the ability to rise to B rank by building a nest.

    5. This comment has been removed by the author.

    6. Honestly, she seems like a D+ to me.

    7. Her speed, tactics, and skills bump her up from E to C in the wild. Meeting her alone in a tunnel is at least as dangerous as a snake, but not nearly as bad as stumbling into a centipede nest.

      In her home the danger rises to at least B, maybe A but with a caveat about total vulnerability to fire. Anybody who stumbles into her web is dead unless they have dragon strength and she can hold off a siege solo.

  2. Oh...So Kumoko-chan is a Magikarp type.

    1. Pretty much. except for being an individual smart enough to use web, which puts her way above the f-e rank of her species

    2. A magicarp can learn tackle and flail...... still a magicarp though. Cant wait till Kumo-chan evolves a few more times.

    3. But Magikarp becomes Gyarados :3

    4. Maybe she indeed a magickarp....but not an ordinary ones, but rarer than freakin shining

  3. So magical Kumoko-chan is around c+ rank huh. Thanks for the information.

  4. Ooooo I want to do a comparison of my own... but I'm so lazy XD Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!!

  5. Shoot? So the frog spits acid at high speed like a bullet? Awesome! Or is it more like an arrow?

    Reading "three intimate friends" made me think of happy tree friends for sone reason.. I-it's not a pun okay, it's a homophonish term.. Orz

    Waiting for Kumoko to finally become an arachne〜☆

    1. Oh that would be awesome well I mean she is a spider and female (do these spiders have gender or are they both?) So that would make it so cool but I haven't seen things about other races either like beast race or even elves and lack of detail on those is killing faster than kimonos poison

  6. Hi!
    Thanks for chapters. Hope she gets to evolve to somthing like jorogumo or get a skill tha enables her to change humanoid so she can learn magic from them.
    P.s.: She need to get a skill for information processing so her detect and apraise canwork better. Sorry for bad english.

  7. Unless Kumoko ends up as something really strong later, looks like she made the wrong choice.

  8. Looks like lesser type spider would've been a better choice ahaha

    1. Not necessarily. There are much stronger creatures, being bigger would make her an easier prey. She'd also be screwed if she couldn't evolve into higher species after becoming big (unlikely).

    2. This is like the choice of adult form or more advance child form, she can reach higher species if she stays a child, lesser probably is a dead end path that can't evolve but keeps leveling up. See earth dragon lv 36.

  9. IMO, Mystic Eyes of Petrifaction would be a more appropriate word choice.

    Mystic Eyes is a term that comes from Nasuverse (as well as Narutoverse perhaps?):
