Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Elf Village Battle 1

Elf Village Battle 1.
Start of the battle.

Elf Village Battle ①

【Elf camp outside the barrier】

When you ask what is the most dangerous mission for the Elves, most people will answer the patrol outside the barrier that protects the village.
The barrier set up around the village is the absolute defense that has never been broken in the long history.
However, just because of that, they can't afford to not be cautious.
The Elves placed soldiers for the patrol outside the barrier even in the peace time, and performed a patrol whether there was any suspicious part or not.

The reason why this mission is the most dangerous for the Elves is because of a certain monster inhabiting outside the barrier.
The name of the monster is Queen Taratect.
The monster with the power of the Myth rank that's said that there are five of it in the world.
One of those.

The Queen Taratect made this forest as it's house.
In addition, it's close to the Elf Village.

The Queen Taratect gives birth to the subordinate monsters by the "Spawning" skill.
Those monsters aim and attack the Elves obstinately.
In case of a lower rank one, the strength is not a big deal.
However, as for the monster of the species called Taratect, the strength skyrockets by evolution.
The Taratect species that evolve and became an adult, is a brutal monster that's equal to the Dragon species.

In the forest outside the barrier, such evolved individuals of the Taratect species lurk.
Even the lower rank individual makes the nest sometimes, and when someone got caught in the nest, even a skillful Elf will die without being able to escape.
Although it's safe in the barrier, when they go out, it's the spider's hunting ground.
The most dangerous place for the Elves.

However, a threat different from it has gathered outside the barrier now.

The allied forces of the Humans.
It's the army led by the Rengzant empire.
In the place where the Taratect species strode usually, the Humans formed a formation and standby.

The figure of the Taratect species is not seen.
The Elves predict that it probably have been exterminated by the army.
Although they don't think that the Queen can be defeated, the Queen rarely moves by itself.
It seems that it's abandoned.
The existence that have threatened the Elves so far was defeated by the existence that threatened the Elves now.
Only the kind of the threat changed, and either way, it was a situation that can't be welcomed for the Elves.

The Elf observers observe the state of the army.
What should be paid attention is the existence of the magic division that has been advancing the preparations for the large-scale magic all the time in the firm defense for several days.
As for the Elves who have long life span and deep intelligence, it's obvious that they have the knowledge of the skill more than the Humans.
And, even if they compare it with the knowledge, there's no magic that corresponds to it. It was an unknown magic construction.

The hugeness of the construction exceeds the strategy class magic called great magic lightly, and it takes pride twice of the magnificence.
The preparations for several days is also abnormal.
It can't be predicted what will happen if such a huge magic is activated even if they have the Elves knowledge.

The Elf observers considered to somehow interfere when there's a chance.
However, it was not put into practice.

The basic strategy in the Elf Forest is climb the tree, and showers magics and arrows to the opponent on the ground from the top.
Because this Garam Forest is made of large trees, the space between the trees is wider than normal forest, but still, because it's a forest, it's a narrow and complicated terrain compared to the plain.
It's a place where it's considerably difficult to move the army, the march becomes slow by all means, and the formation of the army is disordered to avoid the trees which are the obstacle and becomes sparse.
If they are attacked from the top, they will be helpless.

The Elves strategy is the guerrilla strategy, they are familiar with the forest, and they receive the training specialized in the combat.
They cooperate and corner the opponent while moving individually and separately.
The observers also spread out and observed the army from various angles.

The observers' heads fall approximately at the same time.
Without knowing what happened.
Without realizing that they died.

「Haa. To be taken from the back this easily, aren't the Elves not a big deal?」

It's a boy who decapitated the Elves.
If a viewer sees him, the boy will be called a ninja.
Black clothes and a katana at the waist.
The katana probably decapitated the Elves.

「That damn old man pushed such a troublesome thing」

The boy who scratches his head in the way that the bottom of his heart is troublesome.
The state that the magic made spending several days activates is reflected in the eyes.

「Well, it's the best to do it suitably. It's a farce anyway」

The boy who annihilated the spread Elves at the same time alone.
He sees the magic crashes into the barrier, bends, and breaks unnaturally, and he smiled wryly.
It looks just like the barrier broke only because the magic hits.
But, the boy doesn't miss the unnaturalness.
Something that was different from the magic destroyed the barrier.
The boy was able to see so, and in fact, the boy knows that it's so.

「Well then, let's go. Although it's bad for Ken, my own life is more precious」

The boy looks down at the state of the marching army.
Like despising, and like looking down.

「Here was done well, so the others will do well. I mean, can this not go well?」

The boy disappears in the forest with a carefree state.

And, as subsequent to the boy, the monsters that lurked in the darkness have begun to wriggle.


  1. meatbun will claim this chapter's First~
    Thank you for the chapters :)

    1. The power of meatbun reigns for this chapter and the previous! But still not as great as Kumo :3

  2. will we see the spiders in the elf village

  3. Thanks for the chap.

    Now waiting for the elf dish.

  4. Man I just cant bear to read this side of the stoiry. Its crappy af. LOL

    1. I wouldn't say it's crappy. Its juts that kumo's story is much much better.

    2. give it a sec, this is where the side stories pick up.

    3. It's tiring to read the SS because it has slow development and less interesting compared to Main Story but, after catching up, I know now that it IS part of the main story (and it gets interesting knowing that its all connected ala MCU)

  5. For those of you who saying this is a sad story I say stop right there.

    This is the "elf battle" no where does it say "shuns story."
    It's going to be like the human demon battle with different perspectives.

    So just call it a crap shooting and say it's the side story.
    It's very well part of the "main story"

    And trust me on this there certain chapters in here you are "going to hate yourself for missing."
    like probably how yuugo or shun gets his ass kicked


    1. She's probably going to show up somewhere in the elf battle

  7. I can see what will happen. Elves and humans will have a huge party with a huge cake and a Queen Taratect will pop from the cake. Surpri~se.

    1. "Hello, we're Kumoko's army. And this is Jackass."

    2. I think it should be... Surprise MOTHAFCKER!

    3. ya know, when she got immortality, my first thought was of her getting eaten by a dragon, recovering, then bursting out of it's chest lie a horror movie...thanks for reminding me of that.

    4. @Julius, shouldn't it be 'suprise, motherspider' instead?

  8. Thanks for the chapters. Looking forward to tomorrow

  9. Well, after the last chapter we know a couple things...
    1. since Maou in charge isn't really Kumoko anymore she won't become an admin (even if Kumo does become one, which I don't really know yet...)
    2. no matter who has the Queens, Maou or Kumo, it's pretty certain they intentionally let the army through for their quotas
    3. it's entirely possible Kumo and Maou are causing the attack on the elves after the dumb idiotic stuff they have been pulling, starting with the whole previous Maou and hero thing...and all the rubbish they spread about the admins being evil greedy gods
    4. Considering the facts that elves live longer and know more than any other race they might have been involved in the creation of those machines that turn the life of the planet into magic.

    1. Maou in the Future is Maou + Maou in Charge personality.

      Shio is Kumo who is not under the Maou but in charge (but she doesn't want to do it because its troubling so she again leaves it to Body-kun)

  10. How much you want to bet that some of those supposedly dead people are actually with Kumoko? Some of them probably are dead though.

    1. most likely. It's possible her list doesn't track some things properly like Kumoko who just became a god might appear as dead since she exists outside of the system now. There might be other bases where they appear dead simply because the system doesn't recognize them as alive.

      She did say the list wasn't very specific so it probably just shows dead or alive and doesn't show a third option for those who's fate isn't actually known even by the skill.

    2. as I recall, it's even more vague than that, not stating if they are dead and just removing them from the list.

  11. Coooooooooooooooooooooooool!!!! Kumo-chan is awesome!!! Don't trust elves!!

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!

  12. Okay so Ninja boy is probably a reincarnated person and he's probably working with Kumoko.

    It's pretty obvious Yuugo and his army couldn't take on a serious taratect army especially if any of Kumoko's children are mixed in so they must have been ordered to stand aside.

    The fact he called this all a farse most likely means Yuugo and his army don't really have what it takes to bring down the elves which is why they are helping them in order to lay all the blame for the slaughter on them as well as increase the death toll even further.

  13. Kumoko is Wakaba my reason is that according to the old man Kumoko human part is very beautiful, and this world beauty standard apparently the same as us.

    If that's the case there is no way she is Rihoko who is creepy. I bet Kumoko simply doesn't realize her very own popularity.

    1. Creepy doesn't mean ugly though. It's prossible she just wore her hair in a way that covered her face or otherwise obscured her face. Also her expression may have been bad.

      So Rihoko could have been a hidden beauty.

    2. Still you know if Kumoko really is Rihoko, wouldn't she at least react when she got a skill named Idaten, after all that is the title Rihoko get when playing online.

      Plus for someone who is an active gamer, Kumoko knowledge for game at the beginning is very pathetic. The only thing amazing about Kumoko is her instinct for survival.

    3. ........ I want to say it but I can't

    4. Glad someone else agrees that creepy can be cute, especially when heroines, shoujo, and adorable giant horrifying maneating spiders are involved!

    5. Arnold, I'm a little proud of you :)

    6. As far as I remember, she monologued while facing an enemy that if her baldy was so strong while being a glass canon against boss, it was the result of many try and die and learning from experience, and that even with her Idaten speed she couldn't afford to try to reproduce it in this world, where it's try/die/don't retry because... well you understand.
      So I think she's the creepy gamer girl of the prologue and she just didn't realise that if she just wanted to put in some effort she would have realised she's actually a bihoujo, or at least cute + influence of Maou-chan's beauty.

    7. Kumoko's looks are a mixture of her previous self and the Mao who is her grandmother I guess. (Mao layed the eggs that became the Queen's who layed the egs that became Kumoko. So she looks hot because the Mao looks hot. Simple as that.

    8. I wonder I am reading somtsomet else? Why people wonder about such things, kumoku-chan is creepy girl and that is 100% confused乁( ⁰͡ Ĺ̯ ⁰͡)ㄏ

  14. 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 got to watch this video
    right away...

    (VIDEO) Win your ex back with TEXT messages?

  15. BlueHost is the best web-hosting provider with plans for all of your hosting requirements.

  16. Why is there always, always, in stories taking place in a world that is not Earth, a character that has a katana? Japan is already the only country on this planet that ever made swords like that, how would a completely different world come to make swords that way? I seriously doubt any of these characters from Earth know the process of making a katana. It's so unlikely that it irritates the crap out of me.

  17. I wonder who'm among kumuko's will is inside that queen?... Makes me excited to know
