Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Blood 11

Blood 11.

Blood 11 What should I do if my classmate becomes a monster when reincarnated?

This is bad.
It's seriously bad.
The appearance is certainly the usual stir fried vegetables.
But, the mark that seems to have done cooking is bad.

No matter how I look at it, the things that must be the remains of dissecting people are on the cutting board and scattered around the ground.

It's no joke.
That meat is the meat. Maybe, because I'm Vampire, I understand it naturally.
It's impossible to eat it calmly.
In addition, the person who I know is doing it.

『Hey, you're Wakaba Hiiro, right?』

The girl who silently eats the stir-fried vegetables while ignoring my question.
No matter how I look at her, it's Wakaba Hiiro who's my classmate in the previous life.
Although her face and atmosphere has somewhat changed and her whole body is pure white, there's no way that I made a mistake.

After I was reborn to this world, there was time, and I thought of various things.
Maybe, there are reincarnated people other than me.
In the first place, I don't know how did I reincarnate in this world.
Even if I died, I don't understand the cause of my death well.
Although my body was weak, it shouldn't be to the extent that I will die.
Because I might die by a sudden symptom like heart attack or cerebral apoplexy unconsciously, I can't say anything.

But, I understand that it's not like that when my former classmate appeared in front of me like this.
Because there's a story that the whole class was group transferred to the different world in the novel, it might be a group transfer.
Something like the classroom exploded suddenly.
Although I thought about such a thing vaguely, when seeing Wakaba Hiiro's appearance, it might not be so.

Wakaba Hiiro's appearance didn't change much from the previous life.
It can be concluded that her face and her atmosphere have somewhat changed is because more than one year passed.
I don't understand why she's white.
Although there's a little change, I can agree that she has transferred rather than reincarnated.

But, it's unbelievable that she's doing cannibalism calmly.
Although she was a person who I don't understand what she's thinking from before, really, what is she thinking?

「Shiro-chan? You're asked, you know?」

The girl who introduced herself as Ariel shakes Wakaba Hiiro's shoulder.
But still, she ignores her and eats the dish.
The shake of the shoulder becomes greater.
Shaking her, and a punch sank into the her face.
Um, you just introduced yourself as the Demon King just now, but are you serious?

「A right straight that can aim at the world. *Gaku*」

Seriously serious?

「No, well, enough with the joke. If you seriously don't speak, the talk won't advance though?」

Ariel-san who stood up talks to Wakaba Hiiro.


When I think that she finally opened her mouth, she said such a thing.

「Haa, then. Shiro-chan adventure story that makes the teller cry, and the listener will also cry. Let me tell you all about it」

Ariel-san who stands up suddenly, thrusts her fist to the sky and ends with a pose.
Although we just met, don't this person only live with mood?

「Died and reborn as a spider monster. The place she was born is the world's largest and worst labyrinth, the Elro Great Labyrinth. Escape from cannibal siblings, almost killed by the frog, the mortal combat with the snake is unfolded, and fall into the hole in the end. There, what awaits her is the dreadful Earth Dragon that sleeps deep in the depths of the earth! Barely escaping ali-, guhe!」
「It's long」

Wakaba Hiiro who grabs the hair of Ariel-san who talks passionately and throw her away while disheveling her fist.
What is this farce?
For the time being, I arrange the things that Ariel-san said.

Die once means that Wakaba Hiiro was reincarnated just like me?
I have seen the name called Elro Great Labyrinth in the book.
It says that it's a huge labyrinth that connects the continents.
She was born there?

「Summarizing it, you are a reincarnated person, reborn into a spider monster, and escaped from the Elro Great Labyrinth」

Merazofis gives the answer accurately.

「Yes! That's right!」

Why English?
Look, Merazofis draws wrinkle to the middle of the forehead and has a mysterious face.
Um, wait a minute.
Why is English used?

『Um, can Ariel-san speak English?』
「Hmm? I can. Ah, that has a deep reason, but don't mind it now」

Although I want to know it when it's said so, it's not the atmosphere that she will tell.

「The spider monster of the Elro Great Labyrinth. Don't tell me, Divine Beast-sama?」
「Ah, that's Shiro-chan」


Wait a minute.
The Divine Beast is that white spider that appeared when I was being attacked by the bandits, right?
It's that spider that settled close to the town, right?
It's that spider that created the trigger of the war, right?

「I will say this. The war is not my fault」

Did she guessed what I want to say? Wakaba Hiiro precedes.

『But, if you're not there!』
「Even if I'm there or not, it will become a war sooner or later. Because the Divine Word Religion wanted to crush the Goddess Religion. Rather, I was only used as the excuse of the war」
「Because the Divine Word Religion's purpose is to reduce the Goddess Religion's power greatly, they might have put that the country will be smashed up in their outlook. Because it ended with only one town, the damage was rather cheap」
『But, but!』
「You have no choice but to think that it's unlucky. The world is full of unreasonable things」

Still, the incomprehensible feelings jumbled together to the words of Ariel-san who says so with a philosophic view.

「By the way, Divine Beast-sama is taking a human's appearance, but is it an illusion or something?」
「No, Shiro-chan has evolved specially into a human-type. Although the essence is the spider monster, it doesn't mean that her appearance are changed. By the way, Is it the specification that she looks similar to her previous life? I don't understand well there」

Merazofis changes the topic.
Merazofis's mind shouldn't be calm too.
I stare at Wakaba Hiiro who has a nonchalant air.

「My present name. That's why, don't call me Wakaba Hiiro」

Although I don't understand well, I understand.
I also don't want to be called by my previous life's name so much, so this person might be also the same.
I will call her Shiraori.
Though forgiving her or not is different.


  1. thanks for chapters yuhahahaha :D

  2. Yaaaay

    Man, Shiro-chan and Ariel basically treat each other as sisters at this point, don't they?

    1. meatbun wants to sing..
      "Hey soul sister
      Ain't that Mr. mister
      On the radio, stereo
      The way you move ain't fair, you know~"

    2. more like great grand mother and daugther

    3. But isn't Ariel actually her granny?

    4. Considering her childish attitude.... nah, a 'sister', I guess.

    5. Considering age is usless when it's immortals, and while she's her grandmother biologically, Mother doesn't really take on the role of a parent and shiro had subsumed her anyway, so the relation was closer to mother/daughter. But since ariel became like that and shiro became a god, I'd say that at this point... Ariel is like an older sister.

  3. Lol Shiro keeps hitting the Demon King.

    1. Parody from OP-man
      Ariel :bugahhh!!!
      Shiro :keep it less than 10 word

    2. 「A right straight that can aim at the world. *Gaku*」

      Saitama might have got his power from Shiro after she went back to Earth :D

  4. Am I the only one getting excited everytime kumo chan says something?

    Thank for the chapters ^^

    1. Yes, yes you are.

      Everyone else gets excited when she merely opens her mouth.

    2. Every words that comes from Shiraori's mouth are sacred.

    3. ^Of course, she's a Goddess.

    4. Only you.....
      *me, panting every time read her line

  5. Well, they share some sort of soul pieces, so there's something like familiar with each other's attitudes.

  6. Replies
    1. Incest? Kumo's ancestor is Ariel. so you can call it like that.

      Soulcest? Is that even a thing?

      Anyway, Yuri!

    2. can you really call it incest, after she became an god?

    3. think about it, as a she she could even make cute little Halfgod Taratects with Ariel *^*

    4. I would consider Ariel herself the closest thing to a half god

    5. tag: godhood, yuri, incest, selfcest, monster musume

    6. A monster type maou and a divine... MonMusu Quest?

      Wait, that would make sariel the antagonist...
      Nah, let's not over think things.

    7. If she lays more eggs after becoming a god..... do they become demi-gods? :o

    8. .... that's a spoiler but pretty close

    9. Um rather than incest isn't it just masturbation?

  7. Aww, Shiraori's epic tale was cut off.. And by the newcomer reactions, they didn't think it was such a big deal too..

    I know Shiraori-chan isn't a show off.. But it just pisses me off that the other reincarnators doesn't understand her hardships.. UGHH!

    1. > understand her hardships

      How are people supposed to understand you when you don't talk.

      Especially when that person believes you're the cause of every bad thing happening.

      And also the fact that you are a cannibal

      What would be weird is if they just outright accept her without time to know her.

    2. Well that's true. But it still just piss me off..

    3. It is not cannibalism if you're not eating the meat from the same species you are yourself. This means; Spider-goddess eating elves = not canibalism.

    4. Spider-goddess eating elves sounds more like devine retribution, than cannibalism :D

    5. Well, it's a spider. They are known as a species who goes all-you-can-eat even in real life.

    6. Not just in this story. But ask yourself. Do you ever understand the other's hardships, even being told exactly to you?

      No one really cares.

      Just "oh it's hard", then silently envy of their success.

    7. Nah, after she spends 3 yeats together with Shiro-chan and Ariel she learns a lot about them. First of that their strength is ridiculous and secondly various life stories out of Shiro's adventures, cause Shiro is very talkative (and hungry) while drunk.

  8. Forgive her for what. Not cool, you owe her your life and now you think she owes you something

    1. YeS! I just want rip her limbs off one by one.. Show some respect to Shiraori-sama!

    2. Shiro-chan will taste Sofia, when she's drunk. hue.

    3. You don't necessarily have to like the person that saved your life.

      Expecting when they seem to be the cause of all the bad shit happening around you.

      It's not like she hates her anyway she's just simply conflicted no she out for revenge or anything of that nature.

      And fundamentally Shiro herself has not made a giod impression expecially with the whole cannibalism thing.

      And the main problem is that she almost doesn't talk so you can get almost no information of what she's really like

    4. Teacher save many life...

      you guys and everyone hate her.

    5. Technically not cannibalism. since they are not of the same species.
      Heck, Humans eating elves or other humanoids are not actually cannibalism.

    6. what lifes did oka save? in the end she only helped the elves with their evil plans of world destruction.
      "Hey guys there are more then 20 people than have the potential to buttfuck you and your plans in the near futrúre", yeah, really well done.

    7. Don't worry, Sophia'll pay the dept she owes to her. With lots and lots and lots of harassment from Shiro, the drunken master (aka goshujin-sama).

    8. Seriously, Oka's method of saving them was to tell the person who is proving to be the greatest threat to their lives were they are.

    9. It's because while she probably knows it in her head it's not Shiro-chan's fault the war happened her heart doesn't agree and she feels she needs to blame someone for losing her home and family.

      She'll probably get over it in time since we know she called Shiro "master" in her inner monologue later. But for now she just needs someone to blame

      @Andre B: But to be fair she doesn't know he's a threat. All she know was most of the class would die in childhood and she was a helpless baby herself so she couldn't do a damn thing about it.

      It's true her actions in the end caused problems of their own but if she had done nothing then instead of being stuck under elf watch living quietly whether they want to or not they'd be dead. So while their situation sucks it's better than the alternative.

    10. Oka didn't save any one. In fact, she did harm to everyone.

      How many stories have to be told to the people who see the future that you MUST not try to change anything. Just observe silently.

      If she didn't interfere with the students, some may die earlier. But not all at exactly before 20 yo. That boneless hero may die earlier, but Yuugo will survive and became Emperor, not die at Elf village too.

      She's fool. Always.

    11. That's pretty much it, they weren't actually save, since Potimas is the problem in the first place. It wasn't that there wasn't another alternative. That's the reason there's always arguments and debates on the topic of Oka's actions.

      Avoiding any overt actions until she had a better grasp of the situation, while letting some of them die, was an option. She is not required to save all of them and failing to do so doesn't make her a terrible human being.

      What does reflect badly on her is to make such an important decision impulsively. Remember the metaphor of the patient in need of surgery I gave? If you don't know what sickness they have, how to treat it, how much time they have, how to operate at all, or even if there's already a doctor on the way, then cutting them open yourself amounts to murder. They could have just been a diabetic losing a toe, and here you are cutting open their chest without anesthesia, proper tools or practices.

      It's the same as running a canned food drive. It sounds good and you feel your doing something to help people but it actually hurts the foodbank, who has to deal with all the cans you gather, more than it helps them.

      It's just one of those facts of life. Just trying to help alone doesn't help anyone. You have to know how to help.

  9. A spider eating an elf isn't cannibalism though. In fact a human eating an elf wouldn't be cannibalism either would it?

    1. Actually Shiro is a cannibal remember she ate her brother in like chapters 12-13.

    2. Cannibalism as in considering all humanoid type creatures "human" or "living people"

      We are not focusing outright whether they're the same species

    3. That completely depends on if humans and elves can produce viable offspring. If not, then it's not cannibalism. If they can, then it's cannibalism as they are then considered the same species.

    4. Anna (one of Shun's maids) is a half-elf.

    5. Shiro is a god, she has to eat GyuriGyuir or Sariel oder D to commit cannibalsim :3

    6. a spider can't have offspring with elves, so, no cannibalism NOW, becuase she did do it on the past.

    7. Shiro look like human and elf look like human.
      Human eat human(what other people saw) thst the point

    8. A "person" eating another "person"

    9. hohohoho oh Arnold, elves aren't people.

  10. somehow the shiro now is like the old ariel and the airel now is like the old shiro..wait does that make sense?

    1. Must be body in charge's fault :O

    2. She has always been unable to talk to others though...
      Not only that but the only reason she is working with Ariel is for delicious food.

    3. Shiro-chan is the same mindless glutton though, eating is always her purpose of existence. We just didn't hear her inner thought since it's different point of view.

    4. No, Shiro pretty much the same old Kumoko.
      We just simply see her from other point of view.
      She doesn't act much outside but it bet she think nonsense inside.

      While Ariel was and still open mind person
      Now she got Kumoko personalities so she became open mind Kumoko.

    5. Exactly. From the start she's never been good at talking to others and it only carefree and energetic in her head.

      When Ariel fuzed with Body-in-charge she inherited that carefree nature and light heartedness but retained her sense of self and with that her confidence and people skills. So she expresses outwardly the things Shiro is probably thinking in her head but won't say out loud.

    6. Ariel does not 100% win the soul battle. By the time she fight with those Earth Dragon, Kumoko's split will fused with her soul to the inseparable degree.

      She win, when viewed as she retained her soul, her will and her concious. But she's now influent by Kumoko's personality. The one that once buried deep inside Wakabe's existence.

      Wakabe loved to talk. She loved to chat, to do weird things. But only to her "other-self", not the other people.

      Now that her other-self is fused with that Ariel to become this Ariel. So this Ariel does what she always wanted to do but afraid of. Talk, talk and talk - to other people.

      That's why Shiro-in-charge part can talk lengthly only to Ariel-in-charge part. She still talks to herself.

  11. Also we already know that ojou-sama will recognize our goddess eventually. Things like being the cause of her troubles and cannibalism are insignificant.

  12. Replies
    1. No she was actually speaking English the raw.

      She probably learned it from the English classes shiro took in school

  13. This comment has been removed by the author.

  14. Well all 3 of them played a part though....
    the only reason Siro stayed close to that village was cuz of Sophia's existence and thnx to Arial blowing Shiro's Nest(and her main body) to smithereens sparked the war

  15. We won't tell Sophia this right?
    We will just told her that shiro get pursuit by an awesome enemy so she has to be away for sometime.

  16. The Demon king evolved to Demon king (lol).
    She is now the boke of the story.

  17. is she calling herself white blue now?

  18. Kinda agree with Shiro to shut the hell up when something idiotic is talking lol.

    And there's Sophia. Why the heck would you have a choice to forgive her or not lol. She could just kill you painlessly with heresy magic or just take over your soul and make you a mindless puppet. Wait, that's one of Ariel's skill right? The skill Puppeteer if I'm not mistaken.

  19. I still can't understand what part of introvert Wakabe made Ariel became high spirit Maou-soujo.

    1. maybe err extrovert hatefull demonking+introvert happy-go-lucky otaku =
      extroverted bipolar happy-go-lucky otaku?

    2. like, If you badmouth Ariels Waifu she turns serious and will rip you to pieces and feeds you to shiro, literally

    3. Kumoko's inner monologues were always hysterically funny, from the very beginning of the story. Of course, those monologues were just for herself -- she wouldn't have dreamed of speaking like that to other people.

      I'd say that, after one of her wills ate (or mixed with) Ariel, the new Maou has turned into a Kumoko who actually always talks -- like, all the time -- in the same way the original Kumoko kept thinking her inner flow of monologues.

    4. Hehehe, you just made me remember all the times Kumoko went through the Elro maze thinking stuff like:
      "Hey, yummy Catfish! Come to me! I just want to snack on your tender delicious flesh! It won't hurt at all! Well, perhaps a little bit, teehee!"
      Or: "Appraisal-sama, excellent, cool, you are so cool! This unworthy me didn't understand your greatness!"
      Or: "E-eh? Why are these enemies retreating in terror? Look! I'm just a cute, harmless little spider, you know? Fuhahahahaha."

      Also, Wakaba introducing herself as: "Hi hi, I'm the Evil God D who has a kind heart and is full of love for everyone!" So embarrassing... but of course nobody is going to tell that to her, heh.

      In many ways, when Kumoko, Wakaba and Ariel have a conversation, it's like a replay of those scenes with the parallel wills debating. Three echos of the same voice.

    5. LOL you're so right.
      It's like Kumoko, Wakaba and Ariel are a Manzai trio and take turns doing boke and tsukkomi.
      Someone says something dumb? No hesitation! "Divine Punishment!" "Straight jab!" "Uuugh!" That sort of feeling. ;-)

    6. I thought the same thing when Wakaba arrived at the council (through smartphone) and started making lame jokes. 'Why doesn't anyone rebuke her?' I wondered.

      Then I remembered that, unlike Ariel, Wakaba can annihilate everyone with a snap of her fingers. 'Aah of course.'



    8. This series really is Suzumiya Haruhi meets Evil God Average.

      Think about it: Suzumiya Haruhi meets Evil God Average. The result? Wakaba and Kumoko.

      Selfish schoolgirl supreme god and copy with memories removed. Pure win combo! I love it! This is such a great story.

    9. Yes it is. :D :D :D :D :D :D

    10. (ಠ⌣_ಠ) (ಥ_ಥ)(ಠ_ಠ)

    11. Seriously guys. You just keep saying "Wakaba is D" as if it's confirmed fact! Stop that.

  20. This comment has been removed by the author.

  21. 「Haa. Then, it's tears even if Shiro-chan to talk, and the adventure story of tears to hear it. This me will tell you」
    -->[Haa, then. Shiro-chan adventure story that makes the teller cry, and the listener will also cry. Let me tell you all about it]
    I think this would make more sense

  22. Spouting shit like forgiving when she saved her life in the first place is rather unfair, i mean they would have died to bandits and wouldnt have lived to see the war anyway..

  23. @liam
    she doesn't like her from the beginning and from her perspective she is just a dangerous unpredictable monster that destroy her livehood since it appeared. can't really blame her i guess.

  24. I love the fact that they are the same when it comes to names... There was a lot of foreshadowing and hints. I'm glad its all cleared up. Though I wish they didn't abandon their names like that..

    Wait wait I keep forgetting Kumo no Shiro is a Kuugere! Or whatever you spell it. A expressionless character who doesn't talk much.. Kinda sad about that but it suits her well
