Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Blood 21

Blood 21.

Blood 21 Three years

A lot of things happened in these three years.
Every day moving from town to town repeatedly and when moving, we avoided the proper path and advance the trackless path.
Master who becomes drunk when reaching a town every day.
There was no day that I rested physically and mentally.

Why are we not using the highway?
I have the rough expectation to the answer in these three years.
It's because Master hates grown humans.
In order to not meet with people, we pass through the place where people don't come.
Although her expression doesn't change, I understand somehow that she will be in a bad mood in the crowd of people by the atmosphere.
Otherwise, I don't think that she would use magic to deceive her own appearance.

Master came to conceal her appearance by magic before I know it.
Because I who was always with her noticed that too late, I don't know when she used the magic.
The effect of the magic makes Master to only be recognized as 「White」.
As long as a person with good intuition doesn't observe her very carefully, it seems that only the impression of white comes out.
So, even if she passed the people in the town, they will only think 「She's white」, and the face details and the impression annexed to it don't come out.
Thanks to the effect, it didn't become the situation like before using the magic, the people passed her will stare at her fixedly, but they lose their interest in her immediately after glancing her.
Because I have already recognized Master from the beginning, this magic doesn't seem to have an effect on me.

Master hates human to the extent to use such a magic.
She tends to avoid the contact with human as much as possible.
The exception is Ariel-san and me. Although Merazofis is better compared with the others, I feel that his treatment is slightly rougher than us.
Or perhaps I should say, ignoring half of his existence.

Well, we who are made to advanced the steep path because such a picky individual are not the endured ones, but the stamina and skill rose by advancing the steep path.
She might have aimed this a little.
I understood that Master is trying to train me to become strong in these three years.

I think that I have strengthened considerably in these three years.
"I think" is because I have not experience a combat yet, and it's only the date seen objectively from the skills and status.
The monsters hardly approaches because of Ariel-san's Intimidation, and because we advance the trackless path off from the highway, we hardly encounter bandits.
Even if we do encounter one, Master or Ariel-san will deal with it immediately.

Although I have the awareness that I have become strong in these three years, still, the vision of winning Master and Ariel-san doesn't comes to my mind.
Those two were strangely strong to that extent.
Master is the sacred beast, and Ariel-san is the Demon King.
The fact that there's no lie in the words was clearly shown.
I think that I don't accept the fact somewhere in my heart.
But, the power of the two of them was a real thing.
I can't help but to accept it.

Even if I appraise them, their strength is unknown.
Master is 『Impossible to appraise』, and Ariel-san is 『Appraisal was obstructed』.
I developed the skill level of the Appraisal to 9 in these three years.
It's the result of penance that always activate the Appraisal to raise the skill level was leaked when Master is drunk.

When Master gets drunk, she gives advice occasionally, and talks about her own past.
Although most of the stories are not useful, among that, there are advice that are really useful.
Appraisal is also one of it, and Master said that her life had been saved by the Appraisal many times.

So, I tried to always activate the Appraisal as Master says.
I thought that my head was going to break.
I was attacked by a terrible headache, and in the end, I can't activate the Appraisal all the time.
Maybe it's because I persist to do it many times until the very limit, I acquired the Divinity Area Expansion skill newly, but at that time, I was on the verge of fainting, so I don't have the time for that.
Because I continued such penance, I can raise it to level 9 at a short period of three years.
Although I hear that Master raised the Appraisal to level 10 without taking as much as one year, it can't be a reference because the standard is strange.

I must hear only half of the story of Master's past stories and advice.
It's not that Master is telling a lie in particular, but half of it can't become a reference because it's too non-standard.
Something like bathing the lava to raise the Fire Resistance, and raising the skill level by activating it always.
Although Master says 「Try and do it」 lightly, the only one who can do it is Master.

The place named the Elro Great Labyrinth seemed to be a considerable demon boundary(魔境).
As long as I don't even do the absurd Master's level raising usually, I can't survive.
I don't know how many times I heard the words, 「I thought that I was going to die」 when she's drunk.
She might have really experienced the feeling to die that much.

When thinking from there, I think that I'm blessed.
I can stay alive is because of Master, and although I had to do many unreasonable things, I was able to become fairly strong.
I must express my gratitude for that point.

But, but!
I want her to stop eating my body whenever she's drunk!
Why must I perform a life or death struggle staking my body every evening!?
Moreover, I'm defeated in every struggles!
Moreover, moreover, when the morning comes, that has been forgotten completely!
Why must I spend my time in a dangerous night in the town rather than the outside where alcohol can't be drank!
Isn't it strange!?

Ah, seriously.
If there's no such thing, I can express my gratitude honestly.
Although the lost part can be restored by recovery magic, the fear and the pain when I'm minced won't disappear.

Even though she only licked me at first, it gradually becomes play-biting, then, the biting strength becomes stronger little by little, finally, the flesh came to be taken.
Why did it become like this?
Recently, whenever she drinks alcohol, somewhere of me will definitely be eaten in the end.
If Ariel-san didn't put up a barrier, the inn would be destroyed by the fierce battle repeated every evening.
I wonder if this can be called as a combat?
I'm still level 1 though.

Although we continued the travel with such feelings, we finally enter the Demons territory.
I follow Master and Ariel-san even though I said this and that, and I decided to enter the Demons territory.
Yes, I stopped thinking about the small conclusion like the Humans or the Demons.
Because I know that there's an impossible to understand and unreasonable existence with my own body in this world.
I have come this far after this and that, so I can get on in the Demons territory.
I feel like that.


  1. Damn kumo STOP EATING THE BABY!

    1. I just realised. Ain't she trainin' immortal body?

    2. she´s drunk. Don´t think too much into it. Children are just delish~

    3. She's training immortal body unintentionally. Although I have a feeling Ariel is aware of this which is why she isn't preventing it. If she wanted she could probably stop Shiro from eating vampire girl but because she knows it will help train her vampire skills she's letting it continue.

    4. Ariel can't stop Shiro simply because Shiro is now a god class outside the system. Ariel would be entirely powerless to stop her.

  2. Pedospider! Literally eats children!

  3. >I'm still level 1 though.

    Oh My Spider God!! Still level 1 with all those high level growth correction speed!!
    Can't wait to see her growth when level-ed up.

    1. From ToC, Blood 26 - Blood of Oni, she might got tons of exp from a certain human village around border.

  4. On another note: I find it strange that Shiro choose to confront the hero Julius seriously. Does he really die?

    1. There once mention by ronant...
      He once taught a young man but he dies after 13 days...
      I wonder if he is julius

    2. why serious? She gave him a glance and he went poof. Nothign serious about that :p

      License-less i think you misundertood somthing, thats was in the furut´re presen, it was meant "I teached him for 13 days but he`s already dead now" something like that i think :p
      I mean, when Kumo left Julius with ronant, julius was about 10 and he died with err 14? atleast 14 cause it took Kumo&co 3-4 years to get to the demon territory

    3. Shun story is around 15 years in future (around 12-13 year in current chapter)

    4. -License-less Rider
      He only /taught/ him for 13 days. In that short time, Julius became the best student he ever had, to the point that Ronant spared Shun the first go-round.

      And while what Shun saw and the Corrosion keep getting brought up, well, for intents and purposes he's "dead" (why should he be a special case next to anyone else?), but it's a bit odd that Corrosion keeps getting namedropped when we should have that feeling by now...

  5. Lmao ahaha she's actually eating her haha
    She's the fucking best.

  6. Thanks for the chapter!

  7. I believe shun said that Julius was in his 20's when we first meet him and shiro is the one that kills him.

  8. I believe shun said that Julius was in his 20's when we first meet him and shiro is the one that kills him.

  9. I want my baby back, baby back, baby back ribs!

    1. *Remembers nigredo* me: Nope,NOPENOPENOPENOPENOPENOPENOPE

  10. If you want your ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend to come crawling back to you on their knees (no matter why you broke up) you must watch this video
    right away...

    (VIDEO) Get your ex back with TEXT messages?

  11. Oi! Wait! Shouldn't Sophia have aquired pain resistance skill after literally being eaten over and over? What sort of scam is this author-san

    1. Pain resistance doesnt alleviate pain. And kumo needed a hole in her back for days just to up it to level 7 or something. Just momentary pain isnt gonna max the skill's level so easily

  12. Shiraori, that is not how you eat your loli vampire girlfriend. (Sophia is only about five years old at this point)

    Also, yuri(ish) route confirmed.
