Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Human-Demon Great War Secret

Human-Demon Great War Secret.
Secrets of the Demon King.

I added '~' in Sensei's line when she uses her speech to make it easier to know.

Human-Demon Great War Secret

「Was the invasion of the Demons not stopped?」
「It's inevitable. Recently, the present Demon King has been acting like a Demon King in the way that's not likeable for us」
「And, how much is the damage of both armies?」
「It's enormous. As for the Humans, the lost of the Hero is the biggest. In this unreasonable invasion, the Demons have lost quite an amount overall」
「Is this also the motive of the Administrator?」
「Ah. I never thought that a Queen Taratect in thrown into the battlefield. It should be one of the Demon King's trump card」
「Is it thrown into the battlefield to kill General Agna?」
「I don't know whether the relation between us and Agna was perceived or it simply just want to crush the Kusorion Fort together with the Humans and the Demons」
「At any rate, we have lost one of the Cooperators」
「Yeah. However, the thrown Queen Taractect got wounded considerably. That might be useless for a while」
「If we want to defeat the Demon King, now is the best time?」
「No. Even if that can't be used, the Demon King is strong. It's better to judge that it's just one force that decrease and the action is limited」
「Is it to that extent?」
「The Demon King's vanguard called Shiro has a considerable strength. I never thought that she can win against that Hero」
「Was the Hero of this generation weak?」
「He was not weak, but it's hard to say that he's strong. I would say that he's average as the Hero」
「I see. Shun-kun will surely be sad」
「We are moving to end that sadness. Don't forget it.」
「I understand. By the way, who's the new Hero?」
「I still don't know. However, it must be born somewhere. We must find it before the Demon King and the other troublesome force」
「It would be good if my skill can be applied on the title」
「It's inevitable. Skills are not versatile」
「Actually, I don't want to rely on skills. Whenever I use this power, an unpleasant feeling like being soiled wells up」
「Skills are simply free power. Whatever the Administrator's motive is, there's no need to loathe free power」
「Although I understand that, this is the problem of feelings」
「I will warn you just in case, even if you loathe it, don't do such a reckless thing again like what you did recently, okay?」
「Yes. I won't do it anymore」
「I hope you really won't do it. When it comes to the students, you always act recklessly」
「I'm a teacher after all」
「Fu. Well, fine. Oka, you continue act in cooperation with Leston」
「I understand~」
「Stop that weird tone of yours when you're in front of me」


「Is there a need to throw 'that' in?」
「What's 'that'? I wonder what is it. If it's 'that' only, I don't know」
「It's the Queen Taratect」
「Ah, that big Kumo-san. What an amazing coincidence to suddenly transfer to the battlefield」
「Don't play dumb」
「Kuro-chan, scary. Shiro-chan, save me!」
「Shiro-chan, Onee-san wants you to at least give a reaction back」
「Don't change the subject」
「Isn't it fine? Such a thing is not a big deal, right?」
「That's not a big deal?」
「That's right. What? Kuro-chan, don't tell me that you're angry because of such a small thing」
「Do you know how many victims have appeared with just that?」
「I don't know」
「You, do you think that this is a problem that can end by not knowing?」
「Kuro-chan, is that the line you should say to me?」
「What do you mean?」
「The 'problem that can end by not knowing', is this a line that can be said by such a tiny person?」
「What are you saying?」
「You should know it well, right? The truth that the world forgot. The people who forget it and live comfortably.」
「Kuro-chan, no, Administrator Gyuriedistodiez. Because you who's an Administrator is like that, I have to do such a troublesome thing like becoming the Demon King. So you have no right to say all kind of things to my actions」 (TL note: That name)
「But what? It's too late already. Humans, Demons and also the Elves that move in secret, all of them are guilty. I just have them to pay back the unpaid accumulated tab. If you say such a thing about this much, how about the future?」
「This is not enough?」
「Not enough. It's completely not enough. I must expand the war even more for that reason. It's necessary to make the world despair more. If I don't do it, it won't balance」
「What will become to the world if you despair it further?」
「It won't become anything, but if I must say, then my diversion?」
「What? Kuro-chan is going to oppose? I don't mind, you know?」
「Do you understand? Even if it's you, you can't win against me」
「There's no way that I don't understand. I said it on top of that. You can do as you please if you want to oppose me」
「What are you planning?」
「Must I put it in words? Hey, don't you think that the bottomless kindness and the bottomless stupidity are only a paper-thin difference?」
「I don't think so」
「Oh, really. But shouldn't you remember this? Those who are saved by kindness don't worth much」
「I was saved by that kindness. And, that will mean that you will deny us」
「That's right. Therefore, you and I are hostile in this way」
「I take that you don't intend to draw back, is it?」
「I understand. I will associate with you for a while」
「As expected from Kuro-chan! You understand well!」
「However, when it becomes impossible to agree with you, I won't go easy」
「I know. If possible, I hope that time won't come」


  1. Thanks for the chapter! Kumo is the light novel I look forward to reading most.

    I refuse to admit it!!!

    1. There is some hidden plot with the administrator for sure,
      and for the carefree, almost airhead Kumo-chan, this is exactly how she would act, taking everything very lightly, even human/demon life.

      Also, having been through so many life and death situations, her perspective must have surely changed from before.

  3. Where is the story going? I don't understand.. Is this a substory of the main plot?

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. This seems to be the future of our heroine, so the main story will lead into this

    3. This is the main story. All chapters are subplot.

  4. I really wonder what happened to twist her this much. She feel wronged by all the races so they should have done something unforgivable.

    1. probably when she died... i could care less on a world where i have still memories of being reincarnated cuz there's one fact that cant be removed, that is the death.. aaaand there's the focking admins.

  5. yes please bring the spider back xD

  6. Thank you for the chapterino :)

  7. Where's my kumo-chan~
    meatbun wants Magical Kumo-chan not Kumo-obasan! meatbun feel depresed now.. *sulk in a corner*
    Thank you for the chapter :)

    1. 'makes me want to slay some slimes'

  8. Kumo = spider
    Just to inform people who dont no that's the translation

  9. Ahhhh.....
    Admin kuro name is a tongue twister... Failed after 4 times..

  10. Waaaaaah, How did this happen? I really hope that Kumo-chan is actually somebody else... ;_;

    Thank you so very much for all your hard work!!!

    1. As does everyone else I think. At least I do. And I hope this whole war story is done quickly and we can go back to the main story. The main attraction of this story lies there after all, with the adorable character of kumoko and her endless skill and level rank-ups.

    2. " The main attraction of this story lies there after all, with the adorable character of kumoko and her endless silliness and misadventures."

      Fixed. :)

      Right Information-in-charge?
      Right you are Body-in-charge.
      Don't forget me! Magic-in-charge.

    3. and when we all thought the demon lord is kumoko, she suddenly appears in her oh-my-so-overpowered-and-this-is-not-even-her-final-form-yet
      and beat the demon lord easily!

      .... is what i hoped

  11. at least it's almost confirmed that the Demon Lord is Kumoto :D

    1. kumoto sound awfully uncute... i taught she was nick'd kumoko(spidergal)

  12. So Shiro is another admin? Or is she the 'good' part of Kumo-chan?

    1. Are you reading something else than I? How can Shiro be in any kind "good" when she just killed the hero coldbloodedly?
      Man this unnecessary future sidestory feels like a spoiler from the author... also I don't wanna know it anymore, make me unknow it:( I want to unknow the ruthless spider queen

    2. Nah, still don´t thinks it´s our Kumoko xD
      I want her to be a third party, would be way cooler :3
      Demon Lord, hero> Eaten by Magical Spider Girl xD

    3. I still think Shiro is a doll made of spider silk and manipulated by one of the wills.
      But... I really wish they had explained how her duel with the Hero went and how Julius died. ;>_<;

    4. Or there simply isn't anything to explain and that Shiro is a totally different person.

      Personally, I think Kumo-chan isn't the Demon "Lord", the skill used to stop the subordinates are not really correct for Kumo. The DL used "control threads" to stop their movement when the real Kumo-chan could simply have froze them with her eyes.

  13. Despair? Why are you despairing, kumoko? You know, soul gem will turn darker if the owner is despairing. Does that mean Mahou Shoujo Kumoko Magica has been turned into a Witch?

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. Are you sure that is Kumo-chan?

  14. umm.. that queen taratect is not our kumoko. kumo just mean spider in japanese and our kumoko is not aiming to evo to that queen taratect, she is aiming for the aracne.

    1. Queen taratect is Kumoko's mommy.

      I'm sure she's really proud of her daughter right now. ;-)

  15. Now I confuse and curious.
    What are these 'Administrator' and what happen to our beloved Kumo-chan?

  16. The admin is suspicious. And the teacher is worse. And the hero is the usual kind of sick one-sided justice chasing bigot. Wow. But this mystery though. Looking forward to the next update, thanks!

  17. Thanks for the chapters as usual.

    You can't use disgust as a verb, it's a noun. Also in that context I'm relatively sure it's "hate" instead.

    "Skills are simply free power. Whatever the Administrator's motive is, there's no need to disgust free power"

    "I will warn you just in case, even if you disgust it, don't do such a reckless thing again like what you did recently, okay?"

    For both of these you should directly replace disgust with hate.

    Besides these, I don't know how much time you have, but I feel like if you spend a bit more time there's a lot of careless mistakes you can avoid/fix. Mainly tenses and mistranslations.

    1. I dunno, it's certainly a verb in the phrase "you disgust me." :D

    2. In fact, isn"t the nominal form of the word a gerund?

    3. That said, the two uses in the chapter aren't grammatical, because disgust doesn't really have an infinitive form. There is no construction, 'to disgust'. For a similar connotation, I would use the word 'loathe'.

      Or you could change it to
      "Even if it disgusts you, don't do"

    4. Fixed. Thanks.

      About my mistakes. Well, I just post whatever I translated without reading it. Because I don't read ahead, I'm motivated to translate more to know about the story. So...yeah. Something like that. Translate fast but the quality is low.

    5. Huh, I forgot about that phrase Ghostlytricker whoops.

      Also @Joshua do whatever's best for you. It's just a suggestion. I wish I had the time/motivation to help out. At most I could help edit a chapter every other day lol.

  18. Fufufu...
    Kumoko-chan found the ultimate secrets of the universe. She found the Admins had made a mess of the world, and now she's fixing everything.

    Btw --
    Am I the only one who really REALLY wanted to read the duel scene of Shiro and the Hero? Sniffle. No fair.
    I wish they had explained what happened when Shiro opened her eyes, and exactly how Julius died. ;>_<;

    1. most probably the fight ended at the same time shiro opened her eyes, lol

  19. the plot thickens... and i thought this is just a 'carefree diary of a spider' novel
    thanks :D

  20. So let's see what's been brought up: The demon lord has been mentioned as giving "quotas", which seem to be related to deaths in any single battle overall, regardless of side. In addition, there seems to be an objective of eliminating individuals known as "Cooperators" for an unknown reason.

    When our Demon King explained herself, she mostly explained it as making things balance out... Because for some reason, the Administrators won't do it. Demon King insists that the reason why is because they're too nice...

    I have no idea where this is going, but it sure seems like our Demon King is cleaning up someone else's mistake.

  21. kumoko-chan will found out that being born as a monster has no place in the Demon, Human and Elf world.

  22. Alright. I'm confused as a donkey on meth. Is the demon lord here the MC? (IE: this is a timeskip into the future)

  23. I wonder what drove our Kumo-Chan to this point, I feel like she had some bad experiences

  24. This mystery, man. >.>

    So Kuro is an admin... Shiro could be a clone made out of spider thread embedded with a parallel will or maybe even one of Kumoko's ruler skills.

    Still think Kumoko is Maou. Part of me doesn't want to believe it but I'm sure author-san will explain how it ended up this way. If you think about it, Kumoko is a monster. Not demon, not human. Both would be the monsters enemies, right? Monsters are her enemies too. So why should she care? She even has the merciless title lol.

    Teacher Oka... Hmm... Maybe there are like, two factions of Admins. Oka and her people are "cooperators" while Kumoko is some sort of Justice division (I mean, she did get that one skill that punishes more heavily the more the crimes right?). Some stuff musta happened in the long ago past, and then people/demons forgot about it... Overpopulation thing? Makes sense for the life quota. Oh! Maybe it has something to do with the "Taboo" skill that Kumoko has had that's served no purpose!

    Ah, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    But still, JULIUS! WHY?! I wish they would have shown how it ended for him. Make us cry our hearts out. His last wish would probably be something like for Sue and Shin to live happily and become better family with their dad. Guh! I thought he might be evil at first but he's a good guy.

    Makes me wonder why I don't like Shun one bit. =^=)?

  25. Hmm. To be honest I'm not a big fan of this development. Not only is it breaking away from the main story as the "side stories" do too often for my taste, it's awfully confusing and for no good reason, I'm afraid. It would make more sense to spread these chapters out more and just only tease a little what might happen in the future. Like this is quite jarring.

    As a matter of fact, it is so greatly implied that the Maou is Kumoko that it would only be an actual twist if she turned out _not_ to be her.

    1. Completely agree. It's out of place, confusing and just unnecessary. The most annoying part of all is trying to remember any of this! There are wayyyy to many element presented, and almost none of it will stick unless you reread this chapter. O well.... what can you do....

  26. Greedest10 is probably the administrator name.

  27. I don't understand...what's going on..
    But everyone is guilty? What is the Secret of this world that our Kumo has to go this far? And maybe this is all a game the Administrators enjoy to watch...

  28. Thank you for the chapter and all the hard work.

  29. Once again, this makes MUCH more sense after the recent chapters.

    1. hahaha

      I wanna hug the poor queen taratect, she's just thrown in the story all of the suddenly

      Nai waa~

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  30. Baba Okina! Greatest novel writer ever!!

  31. Sigh... Confusing as fk! But oh well, lets just remember what our adorable Kumoko-chan would say during times like this.

    "Nai wa."
