Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Chapter 185

Chapter 185.
Becoming an Arachne.

185 The small Hero

No no no.
Whatever the circumstances may be, this is impossible.
Certainly, the Hero's status is higher than a common mob.
But, whatever the circumstances may be, don't bring such a child to a battlefield.
There's a limit to be inappropriate.

If I see him properly, he's trembling.
Poor thing.
The cause of trembling?
It's me, what about it?

I mean, seriously, why is the Hero in such a place?
Although it's surprising that the Hero is such a small child, in the first place, it's impossible to be in such a battlefield.
Is it that?
Is it like showing the death of people since childhood by letting him to observe the battlefield?

Is it possible?
Normally, only the winning battle should be inspected, but did it change like this because I appear in the battlefield?
Because I don't know this Hero-kun's personality, I can't say definite things.

Hero-kun swings down the sword.
I mean, because the sword is bigger compared with his body, there's only either swinging it down or being swing.
I dodge it by chance.

This Hero-kun has common-sense strength unlike the Demon King.
Only the age is slightly absurd.
Well, he is promising to that extent.
Then, it would be a waste if I crush him here.

It's absolutely better to wait for him to grow up more and mature.
The more he grows up, the more favorable to me.
To be chosen as the Hero in young means that his future is promising to that extent.
It's too wasteful to crush him now.

Thus, Hero-kun.
I will overlook you.
Instead of you, I will take the miserable trembling adults behind you.

Ah, I perceive a preparation of some big magic.
This will even swallow Hero-kun up!
What are you thinking!?

Obstruction...won't be in time.
Although I'm entirely all right even if I receive it, Hero-kun is severe.
It can't be helped.
I will Transfer him.

I construct the Transfer magic hastily while dodging the desperate Hero-kun's sword lightly.
Ugh, the other party's construction is faster than I thought.
This is bad, they already shot it.

The flame that burns down in a wide range hits.
Although I reduced the power by "Divine Dragon Power" and "Dragon Barrier", still, the flame burns down the whole surroundings.
Me together with Hero-kun who was near with me.

I didn't make it in time for an instant.
I activate Transfer in the scene where flame spreads explosively.

The silence that the noise of the battlefield until a while ago is like a lie.
I returned to the Elro Great Labyrinth with Transfer.
Recovering Hero-kun.

I confirm the Hero-kun's condition quickly.
His HP decreases to some extent, and he fainted, but it doesn't seem that he will die.
Apparently, the clothes worn is quite a quality goods, so his defensive ability is equivalently high.
Ah, but only the white muffler burns more than half.

For the time being, treatment.
It's a waste to let the future special food to die.
Incidentally, I will improve the muffler a little.

I cut off the part that was burnt, connect new threads, and knit it with "Thread Manipulation".
It's a good quality even if I say so myself.
Because the Hero wears it, the thread used might be a good thread, but his defensive ability is further increased because it's reinforced with my threads.
I'm sure that it can prevent decapitation.

「Mu! This boy, the Hero!?」

The magician middle-aged man noticed us who transferred.
Oh, come to think of it, this middle-aged man has the "Appraisal".
So, he noticed that this child is the Hero.

Ah, I thought of a good thing.
Let's force this Hero-kun to the middle-aged man.
I also want the middle-aged man to go back already, and if he take Hero-kun along, it's killing two birds with one stone.
The nuisance can be driven out gently, and I can return Hero-kun, so it's a good thing.

Let's do that.
Now that I have decided so, let's take communication.
In order to communicate, I must be able to talk.

My present level has exceeded 50 thanks to the massacre a while ago.
In other words, I can finally evolve.

Thus, take care when I'm evolving.

I entrust the things in the future to the Queen-in-charge.

《Individual Zana Horowa evolves into Arachne》

Although it was long until here, I can finally become an appearance close to the human-type.
Ah, but wait a minute.
The Arachne has the upper body of the human and the lower body of the spider, right?
Won't the eyes decrease?
Oh no!
The eight Evil Eyes festival becomes impossible!

Rather than that, I'm a female, right?
Come to think of it, I'm convinced that I'm a female, but I don't know the difference of the spider's sex.
Although I think that I'm a female because I can lay eggs, male might be able to lay eggs with the power of the skill.
I won't turn into having the upper body of a muscular man after evolving, right?
Ah, that might be alright.
Alright, huh?

Ah, crap, the evolution started.
My body is creaking!?
Although my appearance didn't change much so far, I will change a lot this time.
Thanks to the "Sense of Pain Nullity", it's not painful, but it's an amazingly strange feeling.

My body becomes slightly larger.
It's not the level that can be said as creakily anymore, but conspicuously.
How am I getting bigger without shedding?
That part is the fantasy world, so is it a defeat if I think about it?

The enlargement of my body ends, and this time, my head begins to itch.
Something is growing.
Somehow, it's a strange feeling.
It's like my consciousness is divided into two even though I didn't use the Parallel Thought.

And, the construction of something that grew is completed.

《Evolution completed》
《Became the Arachne species》
《Every basic ability rose》
《Level Up Bonus:Skill Proficiency was acquired》

And, I completed the evolution.

    1. She still needs her wills. She just creates a will that has no personality.

    2. It's more like she literally has two separate brains now

    3. Pretty much. She realized (either consciously or unconsciously) that creating too many wills was destabalizing her soul since each will carries a part of her soul. But apparently she's also figured out how to create parallel wills without using a part of her soul.

      It's probably closer to her previous ability "Parallel thinking" rather than parallel will but is a bit more powerful than the former even without the ego included.

    4. Isn't her soul only destabilized when she sends them out of her body?

    5. No from the way Queen-in-charge was talking it sounds like even the act of making more risked collapsing main's soul.

    6. oh tam chu, she always had two mouths, it's just that the lower one has teeth now, silly.

      yes, be prepared for jokes about "Kumoko devouring muscular old men with her lower mouth" jokes.

    7. Arachne, half spider half person. Think of quillava, she had a spider body that had a head and mouth, and the upper body of a person. It might be the same situation. A spider brain and a human brain.

    8. Metazoxan Dexall so that explains how she able to do multiple magic on her body unconsciously

  2. She's finally become an Arachne

  3. Haha the muffler made with her first threads

  4. Replies
    1. someone on reddit made a fanart of her.

    2. I prefer this one
      It makes more sense since I doubt she's just have a normal Bra and the one you posted looks a little too black. She's supposed to be a white spider now.

    3. Metazoxan judging from that pic from you link it looks like thats the reason for conscience to split in 2. One for the spider part and one for the human part. Idk its just a guess and we'll find out more in the upcoming chapters. Go kumoko-chan!!! xD

    4. yeah she mentioned something "growing out of her head" so it sounds like she's keeping her spider head while gaining a human one along with a human upper body.

    5. This is late, but when I look at the fanart again i thought "Ah, her lower mouth."

      Please ignore this dirty me.

  5. Arachne!!! Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!

  6. Thanks for the chapter!

  7. Oh no!
    The eight Evil Eyes festival becomes impossible!

    That's right kumoko, feel despair.

  8. Sweeeeeeettttt~~~~~
    also, i found how kumo-chi looks like in arachne form.

  9. Finally!!
    To think I have wait 185 chapters for this form.

  10. So she finally evolved from ultimate to mega

  11. we can finally read all those arachnee doujin and imagines all those spider nee-san is our kumoko-chan....

  12. wait a minute..... This means Shiro is 90% Kumoko or at least one of her. Demon Lord might also be Kumoko but we know Shiro was the one who fought the hero and I doubt Kumoko would give the fight with the hero to a mere underling since she seems really interested in fighting him later.

    Granted she might have gotten bored of the idea of fighting the hero after 10 years or she might have decided he wasn't worth fighting if he couldn't beat shiro. But the fact Shiro is the one who fought him makes it more likely Shiro is at least part of Kumoko.

    1. You know that honestly still could be Ariel.(with some body in charge mixed in)
      And by masterpiece I think she means strongest family member.

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    3. In Shiro Killing the Hero, Kumo still benefits from parallel will, I think.
      Though, I'd guess that she doesn't need the exp anymore.
      "Strongest family member" makes me think Shiro is among the spiderlings she made lol.

    4. There are various possibilities still. My point was Shiro is most likely either Kumoko herself or a parallel will since she wanted to fight the hero when he grew up.

    5. But shiro didnt decide to fight the hero herself she was ordered by the demon king who is like 100% decided that its kumoko or someone manipulated by her ie maou in charge.

    6. Yeah but What I'm saying is Kumoko seems like she wants to fight him herself so it seems unlikely she's just send her minion.

      Because up to not it's been debated whether Shiro was Kumoko, her child, or maybe even vampire girl. The fact Kumoko says she's saving the hero for later shows Shiro is most likely Kumoko or one of her wills.

      The fact Kumoko is most likely also the mao is a seperate issue. i'm just talking about who Shiro is at the moment and it's most likely Kumoko.

    7. It'd become really sad for the human side if shiro is kumoko. Julius recognize her in the arcachne form (as someone who saved him) so he would most likely recognize shiro in white dress who would later kill him.

    8. assuming he is awake in the next chapter. Since she evolved after he passed out she may send him away with the old man before he even wakes up.

  13. Josh you spoil things with your before chapter notes T-T

  14. Archne hype!
    I wanna see what she does tomorrow.
    And if she can "talk" now :O

    1. > talk
      That's not how this works. That's not how any of this works

  15. If kumo leaves body in charge as the demon king it begs the question were is the main kumoko

    1. Dead a long time ago.
      We've actually been watching The Adventures of that which spawned from her.
      The "original" is long dead

    2. Are you talking about whem Mao attacked? She didn't die she transfered her main self through the same mental network she sent the wills through.

      After all it's been stated many times if the main dies all parallel wills die. So it's impossible for the main one to have died yet given the others still exist. Her original body got wasted but it seems the egg ended up changing to become the same species she was so she got a new body that was the same as her previous one.

    3. That's not what I meant.
      I mean that she has split herself so many times and absorb many souls that there is not much left of the very "original"
      This is still her but no longer the "pure original her"
      That carefree child died a long time ago

    4. Well she's still "her" just she's grown very fast. This happens to everyone it just happened to her faster. Also she didn't absorb the souls the other wills did and while the feedback did influence her to some degree it seems most of their influence is on the various wills themselves.

      So far she hasn't been affected too much from absorbing the queens since they didn't ahve much will to start with and splitting herself didn't change her original soul just reduced it.

      So I wouldn't say the original her died. She still shows her old tendancies at times to prove this. It's just she doesn't have time to play around much anymore and her experiences have made her grow up.

      When people grow up their inner child doesn't die they just can't afford to act like children anymore since they have important responsibilities. Besides she was never all that pure. From the start she said she didn't really care about her family and she was never afraid to murder.

    5. Besides the original poster was asking where the main was and the main is very much still alive even if she's changed alot. So while we can certain discuss how much she's changed responding to the original poster with "she's dead" wasn't accurate at all since that wasn't the question.

    6. Its just that the one in the body decided to be the one in charge because originally they were all equal anyway.
      And the one in the body is the least influence someone out of all of them

    7. They aren't equal there is an original that serves as the core for the Network. She is the one who can absorb the others at will and turn the parallel will skill on at off when she wants. They are a little more equal now that the other wills have their own self awareness but the main one still has authority over the Network.

    8. I said they were originally all equal.
      And the one that was left in the body became the main because it is the one that was closer to the purest.

      Before when they were all technically the same so it didn't matter if they were reabsorbed.
      Now that each one is slightly different the one closest to the original has life and death power over them

    9. I said they were originally all equal.
      And the one that was left in the body became the main because it is the one that was closer to the purest.

      Before when they were all technically the same so it didn't matter if they were reabsorbed.
      Now that each one is slightly different the one closest to the original has life and death power over them

    10. That's wrong Metazoxan. It was specifically explained that there is no main will. There is a main body but it could be controlled by any of the wills. They are all equal, it just so happens that if a will in the main body calls them all back, they will be reabsorbed and merge.

    11. Andre B from what i read and understood there is a main will which was the original will that the other wills came from and is also the one that is in the main body. One of the other wills (i think it was the first queen in charge) even said it that if the main body or the main will dies all other wills will die with it like a chain reaction. so im with Metazoxan on this one.

    12. The body itself serves as the main hub.
      It's basically the only one that was left in the body after the others went to the Queens

      The wills for all intents and purposes we are all equal until one of them begin holding life and death power over the others.

    13. Any of the wills can control the main body but there is a main one. Remember what Katia said? If you leave is active for too long you might start to forget which one is the original?

      Kumoko avoided this by assigning each will a roll to keep in perspective who she was and who the others were. But there is indeed a main. Remember again Queen in charge specifically refers to a main will that can reabsorb them all at will. She also mentions that if main dies they all die. This obviously didn't mean the main body since that did get destroyed.

      You seem to be misunderstanding what Parralel will does. It doesn't split the user into two equal parts. It's basically splitting off a small part of the soul in order to give parallel thinking ego. But in the end they are all more like reflections of her than equal copies. That is why they only gained sense of self from absorbing the queens. It gave them more soul and a more complete existence so they could exist more as their own persons. But even with complete souls Kumoko's "fragments" as you might call them still serve as their core and she can call those back into herself at will.

      So the existence of a main will that represents the original her and the core of the Network is a fact. If you don't agree show me where it's said she isn't the original or main Kumoko and she's completely equal to the others.

  16. So... Is this the part where the Nightmare of the Labyrinth is "killed" by a great magic?

    1. Probably. They fired powerful magic and she transferred out in the middle of the explosion (Remember the story was the monster was completely destroyed) and after this she evolved into a form most probably won't recognize as the same monster so as far as the world is concerned that monster was gone.

    2. indeed and only certain individuals will know that she is still alive and kickin'. not to mention that she will be as OP as FUCK!!!

    3. There is no way that's true, I mean if that's true then they must have thought Julius died as well. Yet, he is not death.
      If those guy have any brain they must have thought Kumoko alive as well.

    4. They could have said something like "To survive an attack from such powerful magic. As expected of hero Sama". Remember the hero is often known for knowing space magic so they might assume he has it. On the other hand a monster possessing transfer is unheard of.

      Only a handful of people know she can transfer and just to remind you she didn't use transfer in front of the armies she flew in and then escaped during a big explosion.

    5. Except it's not unheard of. It's already known that Kumoko can use space magic.
