Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Chapter 87

Chapter 87.

Changed Omnipotent to Universal.

87 I'm going to evolve! Part 3

Poison TaratectEvolution Condition:Small Poison Taratect LV10:Explanation:The rare species adult of the spider-type monster called the Taratect. It has very powerful poison』

I appraise the Poison Taratect too.
But, if I were to evolve, it would be the other one.
Zoa Ere.
It has strict conditions to evolve, and above all, from what Appraisal-sama said, it seems to have a high combat ability.
It's also small.

Guessing from the name and the explanation, I feel uneasy that I will evolve into a different species from the Taratect species.
If I evolve as the Taratect species, it's certain that I will become stronger.
After all, I have witnessed the evolution form with my eyes.
My mother which is the super-huge spider.
The Greater Taratect witnessed in the lower layer.
Although it's unimaginable from the weak me, I understand that I will reach that area if I keep evolving.

Although I understand, I will get bigger if I evolve into it.
Although it's said that better too big than too small, I think that miniaturization is the mainstream.
Small but highly efficient.
I will aim at that!
If I get bigger, it's harder to move.
How big is the space needed for my mother to act properly?
I would like to avoid that I can't pass through the passage that I was able to pass suddenly.

Try get bigger in this place covered with magma.
I can picture that I will miss my step carelessly in a thin passage!
It won't be "pond *splash*", but it will be "magma *splash*!
I will die!
Although I don't know how big I will become when I turn into an adult, in my case, the demerit is big if I grow bigger.

It's not only that it will become impossible to pass through passages, but also in the significance of combat.
After all, I'm specialized in "Evasion".
If it's big, the target will also be big.
If I'm specialized in "Evasion", then being small is better.
Besides, becoming bigger means that I will gain weight.
My movement will become slower if I'm heavy.
You want me who has speed as life to become slower?
No way.

Thus, I don't want to evolve into the Taratect species.
When there's another species that appeared there, of course I would want to choose that.

It doesn't mean that I don't have worries.
Although it's certain that the evolution of the Taratect species is strong, the Zoa Ere evolution is not necessarily strong.
Worst case, the evolution of Zoa Ere stops at there.
In that case, it might be better to work hard to become stronger as the Taratect species.

Well, if that happens, it can't be helped.
Status can be improved by level up, and it's possible to improve it by training.
Even a weak monster will surely become strong someday if it's raised with love.
Like me.
No, really, when comparing it with my beginning status, I have become quite strong.
When I experienced the weakness of me who can die with a strike at the beginning, I think I can somehow do something about most adversities.

Thus, let's evolve into Zoa Ere.

The problem is how to evolve safely, but I have thought about the countermeasures.
Although there's still uneasiness when you ask whether it's safe or not, it's better than nothing.
Thus, come on, Eel's corpse-san!

Today's 3 minute setting.
The thing prepared here is the eel's corpse.
It's the finest quality.
First of all, this is extended.
Next, round it from the tail.
Be careful to roll the coil beautifully.
This time, it's important to leave some space at the center.
When the circle is drawn, make sure to pile the eel's body up. And on top of it, roll the coil again.
Don't do it from the outside. Work from the inside of the coil.
This is repeated, and it will be completed when the head is placed on the center.

The completion of the eel shelter.
Uwaa, it's made well!

The eel must be very hard because it has "Dragon Scale".
It won't be damaged by just a scratch, so I can expect from it even though it's not as good as my nest.
If it's here, it shouldn't be a problem to evolve.

Let's steel myself and go.

  1. With this, the evolution to become halfgirl half spider is not just a dream~

    1. Still a looooooooooooong way to go... and not even confirmed yet in the raws

    2. Obviously~ What's the point of evolving into human forms in the place surrounded by monsters?

    3. Spiderperson Demon Queen.

    4. This comment has been removed by the author.

    5. I think the species you are thinking of is called an Arachne.

      Probably a more traditional variation

      A cute version

    6. Well that or maybe a jurogumo, but who knows... she may eventually become Lolth,

    7. YES. Right from the get-go I wished for her to have a human girl appearance one day.

      While still being OP as heck of course.

  2. *looks at the half a chapter long list of increased skills....
    And she was worried about her evolution being weak, shame on her, shes the MC.. like hell that would happen =)

    Thanks for the chapter

  3. So basically, this girl is more on physical aspect than magical aspect, I guess. The only time she spent her MP was when she used her poison skill.

    ....I wish she'll be able to use magic asap. That Heresy Magic sounds OPed.

    1. what about the magic that came from Pride? All that Hell stuff sounds even more OP. Black hole that swallows the enemy and then spits them back out when they are dead. Lol this is just a guess though.

    2. The issue is just that she doesn't know how to use magic yet.

    3. >Magic Manipulation

      She was given the option to learn it, yet she refused. That's why I was so pissed off few chapters before.

  4. Thanks for the chapter and OMFG OMNIPOTENT THREAD!!!!! xDD

  5. Haha it must have been troublesome translating this. Thanks a lot

  6. Is she saying no way instead of the usual moe-ish nai wa???

  7. Silent LV1 huh. I wonder if thats silent movement, or an actual silence skill. If she had the latter she would wreck all the fire drakes.

    1. no it is a skill making her talk less, :P

  8. Hm, maybe with "omnipotent" thread, she can add a Fire Resistance attribute to her threads.
    The "Taboo" skill continues to rise... Maybe when it reaches 10, our heroine will take extra damage from Holy attacks?

    1. Taboo not the best thing for a young spider to find since with each level it should gain exp anyways. So our poor spider was destined to have a high taboo why not fall to the dark side which she looks like she already had by saying she wants gluttony which would be another taboo.

    2. If you think about it, wouldn't pretty much all of the young spiders have Taboo? Considering the first thing she woke up to was her siblings eating each other (If I remember correctly).

  10. Question: Does the side stories relate to this story?
    I read a little of the first one, but was behind on main story, so i skipped them, should i read them? are they going to combine with the main?

    1. Side stories contains very important explanations about this world and what happened with the other class. Also, seems side story will be crossed with the main line at some point,... but ok you can skip it until you can't get a clue what's going on and then you can get back and read it in one go.

  11. so we not seeing magical kumoko but assasin kumoko ??

  12. Thx U so much. I cant imaginary about "new appearance" after evol, so I cant wait for new chapt. :D

  13. Sweet new evolution~ Thanks for the chapter!

  14. Thank you so very much for all your hard work!!! It's really great reading about Kumo-chan every morning! Also that new Emperor kid seems like a jerk?

    Ahahahahaha! Kumo-chan solved the evolution problem in a way that I completely didn't anticipate... she's so smart!!!


  15. Thanks for the chapter! I thought she would hide in the eel's stomach. I was wrong. That long list of skills is quite satisfying to look at.

  16. You should change omnipotent thread to universal thread

  17. Thanks for the chapter Turb0!

  18. when she will get transformation skill............

  19. So Zoa means a combination with something like different animals, and Ere means before. So is Zoa Ere the pre-evolution to a spider hybrid with a humanoid form?

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