Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Chapter 129

Chapter 129.
Tasting the sweetness and evolution.

129 I'm going to evolve! Part 4

I transfer and return to My Home.
Let's eat the fruit that I obtained immediately.
Such thing can be done later.
Now I will use all my energy to taste the first sweetness in this spider life!

"Enhanced Taste" Maximum Output!
Incidentally, "Enhanced Smell" too!

First, I will enjoy it by looking at it slowly and carefully.
Incidentally, Appraisal.

『The fruit of dried Kurikuta』
Kurikuta:A plant that grows naturally and widely in the Kasanagara continent. Periodically bloom and bear fruits. It's actually sweet, and it has an effect of slightly recovering the MP』

I see.
This fruit was not just a snack.
So, it will recover MP.
If they hold it as a recovery medicine, I might have did something bad.
But well, I recovered the serious wound, so they won't complain even if I take this.
Because the price must be paid properly, it's okay.

Well then, deep breath.
Suu, Haa.

... Sweet.
Ah, sweet.
It's sweet.

There's bitterness and it's not delicious if I compare it with the fruit that I ate in my previous life.
Because it's dried, there's no juiciness too.
But, it's sweet.

After I became a spider, it's the first sweet thing that I eat.
It's sweet.
It's delicious.
I'm happy.

I taste it slowly and eat it.
I taste it thoroughly and eat it.
Until the very last.

Thank you for the meal.
As expected, proper sweet things are special.
I must say that delicious things are delicious without thinking.
No matter how delicious it is, it's not good to eat and feel complicated.

Well then.
Now that I have soaked myself in the aftertaste, I think that I should evolve.

This time, the preparations are perfect unlike the time I evolve in the middle layer.
Safety is secured, and there's food too.
There's no problem.

If there's a problem, then there's only one. "Taboo" seems to reached max level in this evolution.
"Taboo", huh??
I think that something will happen when this reaches max level, but I don't know the details even with Wisdom-sama's power.
I wonder what will happen.

Well, now that I have come until here, evasion is already impossible, so I have no choice but to accept what happens.
I pray that it won't be an instant death or an irrevocable penalty.
Well, although scary things are scary, I think that it won't go until that nasty.
Up until now, the mysterious skill like "Pride" don't have disadvantages after all.
It might super-strengthen me unexpectedly without a disadvantage.
Even if it won't be like that, I don't think that D who's a criminal for pleasure will impose a death penalty like instant death when it reaches max level.
Because it's that fellow, I'm sure that she will choose to keep me alive and enjoy looking at me.

If that's the case, then I will experience a more frightening experience than death.
... Let's not think about it.
It can't be helped even if I think.
As for "Taboo", I will take it as it comes.
There's no more than this.

The candidate of evolution is three.
Greater Taratect is the evolution to return to the former Taratect.
It's the guy that I saw at the lower layer.
Well, it's certainly strong, but I don't have the intention to evolve to this.
After all, my body will become big.

One of the evolution conditions of the Arachne is a small size or medium size spider-type monster, so if I become that huge Greater Taratect, I can't evolve into the Arachne.
That's why, Greater Taratect is out.

The remainder is two.
Ede Saine and Ortho Kadinart.

Ede SaineEvolution Condition:Zoa Ere LV20:Explanation:The small spider-type monster that's feared as the symbol of death. It has a very high combat ability and stealth nature』
Ortho KadinartEvolution Condition:Small spider-type monster that has status more than the standard value, possesses magic-type skills:Explanation:The spider-type monster that's well versed in magic. It has high intelligence, and it's good at entangle-type such as putting a trap, etc』

Ortho Kadinart is a magic-type, and Ede Saine is the higher rank evolution of Zoa Ere.
However, Ortho Kadinart is not so important.
Although it's an evolution unlocked thanks to "Magic Extremity" and "Divine Magic", to be frank, it's a failure evolution.
After all, even if it says that it's intelligent, that's the monster standard.
I have been creating traps since I was born.

In addition, the Ortho Kadinart stops evolving here.
In other words, it's to that extent.
Even if I look at the Evolution Tree, it can't be said as a high rank monster, so it's not attractive.

Compared with it, Ede Saine is amazing.
It's final evolution is still far, and when I see the Evolution Tree, it's a monster of the rank one step before Mother.

The monster's rank can be understood to some extent according to the position of the written monster's name in the Evolution Tree.
When saying from the position of the name, it's the evolution form that's one evolution behind the Queen Taratect which seems to be Mother's species.
That's Ede Saine.

The rank as a monster is way higher than the other evolution candidates.
Thus, if I were to choose, it's Ede Saine.
If there's no Wisdom-sama's Evolution Tree, I would be hesitating.
Wisdom-sama is really amazing.

By the way, Arachne is a special evolution, so it's independent from the Evolution Tree.
The evolution conditions are "Pride" holder, small size or medium size monster, and more than level 50.
It's an incredibly absurd.
And, there's something wrong with me who seriously aim at it.

  1. Wisdom really shows such convenience and usefulness here when evolving. Good thing too

  2. So basically she just needs to be a small spider species that can go beyond level 50 and have her pride skill

    1. Since it's an optional evolution I wonder if she can postpone evolving until she hits like level 100.

    2. I think then she needs 2 more evolutions then.
      I mean, now she needed lvl 20, next 30,then 40.
      So, 2 more, then Most likely arachne.

    3. Well the first three evolution all only went up to 10 so it may not work out so cleanly. The next maybe 20 and the one after that may be 40. Who knows? Btw Arnold that's not an invitation to throw random spoilers out.

    4. Wouldn't the Ortho species be more optimal? If it can't evolve, then getting to level 50 should be way faster than with a species that caps at 20 or 30 because that's where it evolves...

    5. Think like a gamer. Picking the Ortho species might get her there faster but she'll be weaker when she arrives. Evolving and resetting her level is a huge advantage. Her stats improve every time she levels up and she gets more skill points too. More skill points means that she can buy more hax abilities.

  3. Arachne... Need pride???
    Why I imagine some ojou whipping around with ohoho laughs??

    1. With butterfly mask and whip made of thread

    2. it's the original legend. Athena turned Arachne into a spider for her pride in her weaving.

    3. Athena challenged Arachne because everyone else said that her talent could rival gods. Arachne was turned into a spider because she had the gall to depict the fallacies of the gods in her weave.

  4. The choice seemed kind of obvious to me before explaining the benefits. Why change into a magic species when she's already a high level magic user? Better to go with the assassin type species where she's yet to top out.

    It's odd that she got an evil eye from evolving. What is she expected to have gotten the patience skill already? Do you get it from waiting around in nest waiting for things to get caught?

    1. The basilisk had eyes of petrifaction, without having patience. Likewise, the species she changed to has the extinction eyes ability built in. She would have it, if she evolved to it, even without patience. But wouldn't be able to learn others, without it.

  5. Hmm... "petrifaction" is certainly a valid word, but IMO it's an unusual variant of the word; usually, people say "petrification".

  6. Is this a first chapter that mention 'Evolution Tree' ?
    Or it already been mention in previous chapter but I has missed it ?

  7. Thanks for the chapter Turb0!

  8. Dang it...her becomes Arche is so far away isn't? I thought she'd be one already

  9. "It's sweet.
    It's delicious.
    I'm happy." xD I died here... Doesn't this sound just too cute? xD

  10. Sooo....
    Enhanced poison hits 10, makes Enhanced Abnormal Condition, then FUSES with Enhanced Abnormal Condition, and auto boosts it to 7?
    ( ꒪⌓꒪) Mother of Kumoko's Mother.....

  11. " I think that it won't go until that nasty."

    Maybe 'it wont get that nasty"? Not sure exactly what is being said here.

  12. Spiders don't have taste buds for sweet things...
