Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Chapter 85

Chapter 85.
Conclusion.


85 Spider vs Fire Drake End

The eel wriggle its long body.
In the offense and defense so far, the eel seems to be quite cautious of me.
Although not as much as the monkey, this eel is smarter than other monsters.
That alone makes it hard for me to act.

《Skill proficiency reached. Skill 『Thought Acceleration LV2』 has become 『Thought Acceleration LV3』》
《Skill proficiency reached. Skill 『Foresight LV2』 has become 『Foresight LV3』》

The eel moved matching the voice of heaven.
Wriggling its body, and strike with its tail.
Of course I evade it.
But, the eel's attack doesn't ends there.
Immediately, its tail sweep sideways to attack me.
I fall back further and evade it.
This time it pulls back its tail, and it go towards me.

I have been waiting for that.

In the somewhat slow world caused by the "Thought Acceleration", I stare at the approaching eel's mouth.
I judge that I can avoid it, so I activate "Poison Synthesis" at the last moment.
I withdraw at once.

It's the same strategy used on the catfish.
But, the effect is tremendous.
The eel taste my Deadly Poison as planned.

The eel's HP decreases rapidly.
The painfully struggling eel acts violently in random.
I withdraw from the range of its rage.

In the end, if both have the offensive ability of the same one-hit kill, then the one who hits first, wins.
If that's the case, then how to make the attack hits? The one with the great strategy will win.
In addition, my evasion ability is better than the eel's accuracy.
Even if it has the power of "Accuracy" level 10 and "Probability Correction", it won't reach my "Evasion", "Thought Acceleration" and "Foresight" combo.
Therefore, when I drag the eel out to the ground, my winning percentage increased a lot.

But, it's not ended yet.
Although I said that it's a one-hit kill, the eel probably doesn't die in that hit.
Even the catfish didn't died by a hit, so there's no way the higher rank which is the eel will die.
Besides, the eel still has the power of that skill.

The eel's HP recovers rapidly in front of me.

Life Transition:Consumes SP to recover HP』

The level 3 technique of "Fire Drake".
SP is consumed, and HP recovers equivalent to that.
Although it's impossible for it to recover its HP fully with its current SP, it can secure enough HP to endure the Deadly Poison.
Furthermore, in the appraisal result of the eel, 『Poison Resistance LV1』 and 『Automatic HP Recovery LV1』 are newly added.
Still, the poison in its body reduces its HP little by little, but the damage peak ended.

Well, there's no way that I will wait for its revival without doing anything.

I wrap the eel's body with the thread that's made as strong as possible.
Still, it will probably burn out at once, but it doesn't matter.
I just need it to stop the eel's movement for a moment.

As planned, I succeeded in stopping its movement for a moment.
In that moment, I activate "Poison Synthesis" aiming at the eel's face in rapid succession.
Many drops of Deadly Poison hit the eel's face.

The eel tears the thread off and rages.
The poison that invaded from the mouth and the eyes decrease the eel's HP without mercy.
The speed is not on the level that the newly acquired automatic recovery can do something about it.
The power is not on the level that the newly acquired "Poison Resistance" can endure it.
This weapon that I have sharpened in my life as a spider is not easy to protect with just a shield that's made instantly.

The eel that don't have the SP to recover its HP can never endure this attack.

      They haven't been vetted by Mr Turb0, and the quality will be quite a bit lower, but anything to help prevent cliffhanger aneurysms, right?
      I tried to get in contact with him but had no luck, though I guess he might see this comment after all.

  11. Haha sudden evolution, I wonder if she'll be in danger

  12. This evolution must have something interesting happen.
    It's a first evo after obtain Pride after all.

    ReplyDelete
  13. hmm, maybe she will evolve to poison taratect or other rare kind

  14. can't wait for the next! keep up the great work!

  15. The eel that don't have the SP. Shouldn't it be the eel that doesn't have the SP?

  16. We know that one of the evolutions is Posion Taratect, since that's the adult version of her current form, but what the other one is and whether there will be more than two choices are to be revealed. What I'm hoping for is that she'll in the end be able to morph into an atleast humanoid form(Elise in LoL, or The Spider Queen in Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning, etc.), since it will be hard to come in contact with her former classmates if she can't communicate. I have a suspicion, though. At first I thought that she end her classmates would, in the end team up and defeat the Demon Lord for good, but since we got to know that the Hero died, and the aquisition of Pride, makes me believe that she will inherit that title instead, turning the Demon Lord(Lady?) into someone who not only doesn't want to fight the entire human race, but also is a.. Friend..? of a few of the members of human royalty etc. The last matter I'm thinking about is time. Is the S-series chronologically parallell to the main story? Does that mean that Kumoko's 'days' are more like months or atleast weeks, does it mean that she was reborn alot later than the others, or did the S story leave Kumoko behind timewise after the first episode? Because it really doesn't feel like Kumoko's been exploring the labyrinth for more than a year.. Sorry for my rambling, thank you so much for translating this series!

    1. Sorry! I should've formatted it! Ignore that one and read this formatted one instead!

    3. Yeah I posted it and was like "Daaayyym even I can't read that, and I'm the one who f**king WROTE it!" :S

    4. first about communicate part if i remember correctly there was a skill name telepathy so she can communicate hit that
      also do you think she is so kind heart to help human????
      from my point of view she will destroy humans as demonlord
      also there is two possible for age :
      1- she born later
      2- she become the demon lord in s series and its something like flashback

      Delete
    5. Well, I didn't really mean that she was excessively kind hearted, but I think that, at heart, she's more or less human, which will leave her with conflicted feelings about killing humans(probably) what I meant is that she seems to be missing the utter hatred required for her to want to wipe humans off the map.

      Besides, while she might not like her classmates, I don't think she'll deliberately become their enemy, since they're the closest she gets to aquaintances. In the current sitution, that is.

      If they where born at the same time, which is kinda possible since all the humans seems to have been reincarnated at the same time, she is probably not more than a year old, so she has plenty of time to grow extremely powerful before she gets to the point where the S series is now.

      As for telepathy. Maybe.. It's possible that she'll aquire that, but not aquiring an atleast humanoid shape would make her existence alot harder to accept for everyone besides the ones that reincarnated. Then again, all we can really do is wait and see.. It's fun discussing, though.. xDDD

    6. Well very later in the story she already meet a classmate, in a baby state. Meanwhile, S part members are recalling a "legendary spider monster", as it was long time ago. So, timline gap is still a question atm.

  17. I swear, she will eventually evolve into a drider! DRIDER MC PLOX! T_T

  20. In the beginning of the story there was something about not being able to move the neck as a spider, but she has no problem fighting from the ceiling, which seems strange, last time she had no problem looking down on the monkeys, or upwards at incoming bees, I just now realised this...

    1. vertical head movement can be done like a see-saw.
      Basically, crouch back legs and extend front legs, or get far enough back that her excellent peripheral vision can manage it. I think she has something just short of 180*.
      Teratects are likely 'evolutions' of Jumping Spiders, which indeed possess ultraviolet perception, where most spiders only have vague color shift recognition and rely on their senses. They possess nearly 360* vision (barring, of course, the ability to flip their head right around).
      You can see some relevant information here:
      http://lightandmatter.com/html_books/lm/ch31/figs/jumping-spider.png
      So, her being unable to see her abdomen would be accurate to 'the real deal'.

  22. Thank you so very, very, very much kind sir/madam for not leaving the translation on the super high-tension cliffhanger of before the end of the eel battle. I rejoice that Kumo-chan has safely made it to the next evolution, but I wonder what's she's going to do about the down time and lack of safety? Maybe she'll wait to evolve? But... that doesn't seem like her style... XD

  23. Thanks for the chapter! Interesting, another evolution soon.

  24. That "third part completed" is apparently a meme from Jojo; it's not the only meme she references btw, for what I remember.

    The meme is born from the "Wheel of fortune fight"; where one guy celebrates like that when he thought that he offed the main character; that fight is on "part 3", ergo the dialog.

  25. I love this novel. I spend every minute of my free time into reading it.
    At school I drew a picture of this fight:

  28. "I won!
    Third part completed!"

    I could be wrong, but this really feels like a reference to the battle with Wheel of Fortune in JJBA Part 3: Stardust Crusaders. I won't go into detail to avoid spoilers for that series, but I'm pretty sure it is.
