Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Elf Village Battle 11

Elf Village Battle 11.
The final part of the battle.
The identity.


Elf Village Battle ⑪

【Shun】

Kyouya who appeared suddenly.
And, Negishi Akiko named Sophia.
Why these two people are together?
The two of them should not have an interaction particularly in the previous life.
Then, the two of them meet somewhere in the present world, and acted together.

「I am Sophia. I threw away my old name」
「It will be found out someday anyway, so isn't it better to not be pretentious?」
「Don't give me directions」

Former Negishi, Sophia who glares at Kyouya.
Certainly, the impression is very different in Negishi of the previous life and the present Sophia.
The previous existence that was taciturn, always looked downward, and brought on a eerie atmosphere.
The present that has an arrogant tone, faces the front properly, and has Haki.
Perhaps, if it's not said by Kyouya, I wouldn't know that it's the same person.
There was no look called Rihoko in the shadow in the previous life at all.

「Ah」

Magic is shot towards Kyouya and Sophia.
It's the Elves' magic.
Both Kyouya and Sophia prevent it easily.

「Salvo!」

The man who seems to be the captain of the Elves shouts.
In response to it, the surrounding Elves start attacking all at once.

「Please wait!」

My voice doesn't reach.
Although I wanted to say that they are not the enemy, Kyouya has declared that he came to destroy the Elves clearly.
Seeing from the Elves, he was a clear enemy.

「Hindrance」

Sophia swings her arm.
The Elves' attacks are cleared away, and a red liquid is scattered from the arm in the surroundings.
The liquid wriggles as if it has a will, and attacks the Elves at high speed.
When I thought to stop her, it was too late, and the Elves who touched the liquid begin to melt while giving off a stench.

「Ku!?」

When I turn around to the voice, I catch sight of Hyrinth-san caught the red liquid with the shield.
The red liquid clung to Hyrinth-san's shield, and seemed to try to cover the shield completely.
Anna and Sensei are over there.

「Stop it!」

I swing the sword at once towards Sophia.
Kyouya stopped it.

「How light. Do you seriously think that you can cut someone with such a sharp sword?」

I'm sent flying by Kyouya lightly.
It was the evidence that his offensive ability status greatly exceeds me clearly.

「Sophia. Isn't the one who fall at the back Sensei?」
「Oh? Is it?」
「Probably」
「Then, it can't be helped. I will stop it」

When Sophia snaps her finger, the red liquid withdraws from Hyrinth-san's shield quickly.
And, the liquid scattered in the surroundings coils around Sophia's arm, and it disappeared as if it's being absorbed into the body.

I have neither heard nor saw such a skill before.
What is it?

「Leaving aside Sensei, how about the Half Elf there?」
「I don't know」
「Then, there's no problem even if I kill her」

I have wariness towards Sophia who says a dangerous thing.
I hold the sword.

「Ah, Shun has got angry. What are you going to do with it?」
「Are you saying it's my fault? I won't do anything. If he's hostile, I will just smash him up to the extent that he won't die」
「He's more or less my friend, you know?」
「Then, try persuade him. I don't care either」

Aside from Kyouya, Sophia is dangerous.
This composure in addition to the unknown ability.
I should think that she has a considerable strength.
In addition, my "Appraisal" didn't work in both Kyouya and Sophia.

『Appraisal was obstructed』

I have seen the message only once.
When I used "Appraisal" on Sensei for the first time.
Sensei said that it was the Ruler authority.
In other words, it means that the two people in front are Rulers.

Because I was cautious of Sophia, I was not able to mind the surrounding state.
By a short shout, I knew that the situation changed.

At the point that I turned around, innumerable Elves attacked Hyrinth-san.
All of them are the Elves who were half melted that were defeated by Sophia some time ago.

「Ah」

Sophia leaks a voice.
It's this person's ability!?
Shit.
Although Hyrinth-san wards off the swarming Elves with the shield and slashes with the sword, the effect is small.

A sword is swung down to me who was going to support him in a hurry.
Ahead of the stopped sword is the figure of Yuugo who lost the head.

Zombie:The existence like a golem that moves by the ability to manipulate corpse of living thing. As long as the body is not destroyed completely, it will continue to move』

When I appraised him, the status is not displayed and only the explanation is displayed.
Zombie, the identity of the thing that attacks us now.
It seems to be meaningless even if we smash the head because the headless Yuugo is moving calmly.
In order to stop the movement, it seems that we have to destroy the body completely.
What a troublesome ability.

I blow off the zombie of Yuugo with magic.
Katia burnt down the whole zombie of the Elves with flame on the side too.

I try to go to support Hyrinth-san.

「Ah」

An arrow pierced Anna's chest deeply who treated Sensei.
The arrow that the Elf zombie shot, pierced Anna's heart.

Anna who's HP decreases very fast.
It's dangerous if treatment is not given at once.
But, the Elf zombies stand in my way.
Hyrinth-san and Katia can't move because they are obstructed by the swarming Elves.

「Get out of my way!」

I cut them down, and reach Anna.
At the same time, the fallen Anna's HP becomes 0.

I activate the "Kindness" skill without hesitation.
I won't let Anna become a zombie.

《Skill proficiency reached. Skill 『Taboo LV9』 has become 『Taboo LV10』》
《Conditions met. Activating the effect of Taboo. Installing》

Something flows into me who succeeded in Anna's resurrection.

「Guaaaaaaaaaa!?」

My head hurts.
My head seems to break by the excessive headache.
But, when I writhe, those flowed into my head without mercy.

Katia burns down the Elf zombies, and runs up to me.
Hyrinth-san holds the shield to protect us.

Although Kyouya and Sophia seem to talk about something, I can't understand what is it because it's impossible with the headache.

「Shun! Hold on!」

Katia gives me "Treatment Magic".
But, it's useless.
This is not a pain that can be relieved with treatment.

《Installation completed》

At the same time as the Divine Word's message, someone transfers.
The person who transferred beside Kyouya and Sophia.
I know that person.

It was a white girl.
There's no way I will forget it.
Julius-niisama's last opponent who Hyrinth-san showed to me.

But, why didn't I notice at that time?
No, I can agree if I see the figure.
Although it's hard to understand, the power of the recognition obstruction is applied in that person's surroundings.
Such magic that makes people to only have the impression of white.

I didn't understand it to that extent in the image shown by Hyrinth-san.
But, when I actually saw the real thing, I broke through the magic of the recognition obstruction and the identity rose clearly.

「Wakaba-san」

That was none other than the reincarnated person who should have died, Wakaba Hiiro.
And, my consciousness was reaped by the headache, and I sank into the deep abyss.

    2. Two weeks, at the current rate.

      Delete
    3. 10 days if you only want to catch up to the current chapter.
      Account for new chapters, by using the difference of author updates and translator updates, so 2/day.
      Thus; 15 days.

    2. I had read it on animesuki too and held back, why did you have to go on posting spoilers? Didn't the translator get annoyed with you and delete most of your comments?

    3. It's not really spoilers at this point, most people should be able to infer due to them appearing in previous chapters

    4. if you read this chapter, you know its no longer a spoiler right?

    5. He can't enjoy the story anymore because either he spoiled himself on spoiler, MTL, or the raw. So now he enjoys ruining other people by obviously posting it on a public comment section

    6. Was it confirmed that Shiro was Kumoko? Obviously the signs were there but between her and the demon king I don't think it was clearly stated.

      Delete
    7. speaking of spoilers, it's about time we can say it now, right? Right?! We can mention what the author said about the side stories from here on out, right?! (it made ME happy)

      Delete
    8. The shun side stories is going to be on hiatus for a while

      Delete
    9. wasn't it announced that the side stories weren't going to be about shun anymore?

      Delete
    10. Yes the author announced that the coming side stories aren't going to be about Shun. But about Sophia and kyoya

    11. i think author uses vampire and ogre storylines to join main and S timeline?

      Delete
    12. Although i wanted to see what everyone else thought of the chapter and clarity on confusing parts, I had to be vigilant to avoid accidentally reading your spoilers that you drop casually. Not all your spoilers were removed and you really did ruin it for me a few times to the point where I didn't really feel like reading any more sometimes. You say that now you can stop now, as if you HAD TO to begin with. The TL even called you out at the beginning of one of the chapters. I hate you; may every step you take be on a Leggo.

  4. So kumoko who is wakaba who is shiro is working for Ariel??? I liked her arachne spider body...

    1. Well Ariel after she fused with Kumoko. So technically she's kinda sorta working for herself. Comparable with Goku working for Vegito.

    2. I think relationship between Shiro and Demon King is like Ra's al Ghul and fake Ra's al Ghul in Batman Begin, Shiro pretending to be Demon King henchman but actually she is the bos...

    3. Kumoko still has her spider body.
      she can do human transformation, that's all.

    2. About 30, but the author seems to post new chapters daily, if we keep speed and the author continues to post 1 a day, around 15-16 days until we catch up

    2. yeah I mean even the raws aren't that much beyond this. Sure the chances of this being a trick are possible but unless someone has access to the author or the author overturns his own read hearing pretty quickly then there is no info to discredit this reveal yet.

      Delete
    3. @Arnold Jayeola

      You're a moron, Cabman, nobody cares about what you say. :D

      Delete
    4. Even so, Shirobara, the theory and reasoning for saying it's a red herring is arbitrary and discounts all the less convoluted explanations. It would require characters to commit to actions that have questionable gains and make everyone's efforts predestined or predetermined. It isn't the same as playing with our assumptions like with the Rihoko thing. It would be a completely purposeless twist.

      Delete
    5. Kumoko has no Japanese name...
      Other reincarnates have their original Japanese name in their appraised data, but not Kumo-chan...
      And the numbers say there's one reincarnate too many...
      And D talks and acts exactly like Kumo. Reread every appearance of D so far, she's Kumo to a T. Their dialogues are like chats between parallel wills...

      Explanations? Sure, one can come up with lots of 'em.
      But among competing hypotheses that explain equally well, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.
      Boom. Occam's Razor nailed it.

      Delete
    6. the fact that you have to make a lot of assumptions about their goals is more or less the problem though. It also requires you to generalize their personalities to make them more similar and ignore D's superior ability to communicate. Kumoko and D are about as distinct from eachother in personality as they are to anyone else among their group. I'm saying that the other explanations are less convoluted, that is the require less guesses, assumptions, dismissals.

      Delete
    7. * Why does Kumoko have no Japanese name in her appraisal data?
      * Why does D favor Kumoko so much, even making brand new powers just for her?
      * Why does she talk to her and explains all that stuff to her? Heck, why reveal herself to Kumoko in the first place?
      * Why would she lie about being in Tokyo and living happily? Were there other lies in all the things she said? Can you pinpoint even one, to justify your suspicions?
      * If D is in Tokyo, why are there 25 students in the game world? Who is the false student? Is anyone more likely than the no-name spider?

      You can come up with ad hoc explanations for all these questions. (It's complex, convoluted work... but it's possible.) Or you can just say: "D is Wakaba, and Kumoko is her creation!" And all the mysteries and contradictions vanish into thin air. And all the guesses, assumptions, dismissals and similar ad hoc constructions become unnecessary.

      Occam's Razor FTW, that's all I'm saying.

      Delete
    8. >D is wakaba

      And you dare call or explanations ad-hoc.

      1 can't say my answer without out spoiling
      2 I love call the reincarnation she's the only one whi is doing anything. And the others are still babies
      3 rewards for doing a good job.? Also the only reason she talk to her first time was because the other administrator went to kumoko and she told him to stay out of the reicarnation business.
      4. We don't know whether she's lying and we have no fucking idea.
      5 nothing explained yet. And with the numbers it should be 2x the students not just one.


      And anyway if you see ours is ad hoc yours is just as ad hoc that has no support to it

      Delete
    9. Someone get Arnold an adult diaper.

      Delete
    10. Surely a baby one is enough for him.

      Delete
    11. Possible reason Kumoko's japanese name is not shown is just the author hiding it from us, the readers. Thats all.

      Delete
    12. I've a speculation, just hear me out and don't throw stone at me.


      the people total involved is 27.

      1== D

      elf vill== (14 + sensei) == 15

      dead ==== 4(Hayashi Kouta,,,Kogure Naofumi,,,Sakurasaki Issei,,,(Wakaba Hiiro***))

      yuugo(crazy) + yuurie(saint of church) == 2

      shun + katia == 2

      Sophia(akiko/rihoko)'vamp girl' + kyoya()'future oni'== 2

      lastly kumoko == 1

      explanation
      (she was originally a spider in the classroom reincarnated with human consciousness, will and memory{soul} in the dungeon[[[the speculating soul is wakaba hiirro]]])

  8. Everyone! Let's go back to the student count!

    Dead 4
    Wakaba Hiiro (Kumoko?)
    Kogure Naofumi
    Hayashi Kouta
    Sakurasaki Issei

    Alive
    Teacher 1

    2. "The student that has the earliest death time which is written that the student will die when it's a baby, disappeared silently before I know it."
      ^I think that is D. D is still at Japan and has never been born in the world.

      Delete
    3. Maybe, or maybe not. Could be Kumoko. Remember, when she "dies" fighting Ariel, it's been probably less than a year since they were reincarnated. And when she ascended was not much later...

      Delete
    4. The problem with D being back in Japan, is that we know there were 26 people in this world from Earth.
      25 Students, and a Teacher. D HAS to be one of them.

      She was either a boy the whole time, and just had herself killed off.
      Or she's one of the 14 students in the elf village.
      OR she was one of the main characters the whole time (Like Yuri) and was just playing along.

      Delete
    5. free people 7 who? I count on your post 5 people, you missed one who is negishi akiko which makes this 6.

      Delete
    6. The 7 "free people" are the 5 he said, Negishi, and Kyouya.

      Delete
    7. @lettucekun

      Hehe, where's D, indeed. There's a bit of a problem here, isn't it? Your message sums it up very nicely. Well done! (^_^)b

      If D survived and is still in Japan (and we have no reason to believe she lied), then one of the 26 is not a real student from that class. And the only one so far who doesn't have her original Japanese name in her appraised data is Kumo-chan...

      Add to that the fact that D, while hiding her voice, thinks and acts just like Kumoko, has a similar speech pattern, and deals with Kumoko as if she was a spawned "excellent brat", and... gulp.

      Delete
    8. ermmm.... D is Kumoko? ok. why D can't be among the other 3 dead people? among Kogure Naofumi, Hayashi Kouta and Sakurasaki Issei i mean.

      Delete
    9. So, that leaves only 2 Explanation, right? When we say, that all Student are/were here.
      1: D is one of the Dead and fiddled with oka´s skill
      (after all D gave it to her)
      2: D did the typical Evol God Act and put a Copy of herself into that world. Which would most porbably be Kumoko.
      numm´ber 2 Sounds extremely Similar to Evil god Average,right?

      Delete
    10. You see, I don't think D tells lies. She has no reason to tell lies. When talking with Kumoko, every time she wanted to keep some info secret, she just said: "Sorry, not telling! Teehee!" Just like that. Lying to Kumoko is pointless to her.
      So, when she says that she's in Japan and she's a girl, we should believe her. And of the 4 dead students, Wakaba is the only girl. The other 3 are boys. That's why it can't be them.

      Delete
    11. @Joshamee Gibbs

      You're right. There was that plot twist in Evil God Average. I guess that's one of the reasons many people quickly accepted the idea that it could be the same thing for Kumoko -- because it's a plot gimmick that has tradition! Or something. Hehe.

      Delete
    12. The problem is that it doesn't make sense for the story. There is no reason or benefit for D to split off a fragment of herself, modify or limit the memory, and make that fragment completely independent so that it shows up on the list. D just being someone else among the group in the first place would be more reasonable. D had no restrictions that made this act necessary nor any gain from it.

      Delete
    13. ok i checked. really, the other 3 dead are definitely males (-kun).
      so we have the battle of several variants:
      - D is among 3 dead, then she is in fact male.
      - D is "real" wakaba and kumoko is her copy. so, anyway D is among 4 dead people.
      - D is among classmates which is not dead, and she then left earth after main timeline to be among "living" rebornees (one of abductees, or even among frees) to reach S-timeline.
      - D is "real" and someone among "living' is her copy.

      well between them i'd choose 1, it's the simpliest one. D never said she's girl, she just speaks by feminine voice. but also, because it's simpliest, i hope author did it more originally..... maybe it'll be v.3. maybe she's inchou-san.

    14. This comment has been removed by the author.

    15. @Andre B

      Why should she do that? To make you happy?
      D is perfectly content with her life in Tokyo. (Remember, she even boasted about it.) Why should she ruin her delightful life jumping into a dystopia? Why waste her precious time living the shitty life of some shitty artificial character, when there's absolutely no need?

      Sure, you can come up with some ad hoc explanation. Yeah. That's always a possibility. But, thing is, it's not good procedure. Because, well, Occam's Razor. You understand, right?

      Delete
    16. @schthaxe

      I have doubts about number 1 being the simplest... in my opinion, it leaves some mysteries unsolved... but, hey, simple or complex, anything can still happen. The author hasn't tipped the hand yet.

      All I can say is, if it turns out that D is 1) a liar, and 2) a male, I'm going to be very disappointed. ^^;;;

      Delete
    17. well. to think of it, voice is anyway seems to be changed, so kumoko can't recognise her (ot him) by voice. well you can say kumoko just don't remember voices of her classmates, but it's really not safe for D to play. D seemingly don't want to risk her play just in case kumo recognise or remember her voice.

      Delete
    18. @nene

      then, explain the reasoning for D to make Kumoko.

      Delete
    19. look, we've considered that D sent a fragment awhile back. We talk about it ages ago. The question is why that fragment would have to be Kumoko. That would require that D break off a fragment, selectively altered it's memory, then lead it around. It would require D to take a detour in achieving this end.

      More so, the case for it suffers from a perfect solution fallacy. It tries to be the one solution to explain all points still open. It's wrong to assume that they come from a single origin.

      There's also the generalization of their character. They are not that similar and there are other characters that have just as much in common.

      Delete
    20. I've a speculation, just hear me out and don't throw stone at me.

    1. nope. the dead 4 doesn't include kyouya who is a monster. so nope.

    2. maybe when they evolve as monsters they are no longer counted?

    3. Since they are seen as alive early on

    4. Might be taboo or other ruler skills messing with the class list. Or maybe Kumoko's soul is so screwed up at this point from fusing that class list no longer recognizes her.

      Delete
    5. Mayby because Kumoko "died" that time against the Maou she is display as dead on the teachers skill

      Delete
    6. Kyouya and Sophia were probably those two who Oka-sensei said were "unreachable" (kyouya was among demons, and sophia was probably taken care of by kumoko...)

      Delete
    7. The Class Roster had Kyouya and Sophia. Otherwise, she's point out something wrong about those two.

      Even Kumoko/Wakaba was accounted for by Oka, and she said Wakaba was dead (probably because she became a god)

      Delete
    8. yeah, being a monster has nothing to do with it. Kyouya is a monster and has evolved to a high rank ogre, oni.

    13. like i said many many times, kumo is not in class list because she has no name. he name is wiped so she is not appeared here.
      class list deals with names. it can't deal with nameless person.

      or so i think.

      Delete
    14. That's not it actually. Her name is Wakaba and on sensei list it has her as dead. That also corresponds with the time she met Ariel and became a god.

      Incidentally also the chapters to come go a little more into her name and we get a little more backstory about this girl we strangely don't know much about.

    18. Hey~ becoming a god is dead in some meaning...

      And I think becoming god means becoming admin.

      and people can't use skill to check on admin you know?

      Gyuri is "Appraise Impossible" and not "Appraising Obstructed"

      Skill is made to work within system. Something standing over it won't be affected.

    19. I've a speculation, just hear me out and don't throw stone at me.


      the people total involved is 27.

      1== D

      elf vill== (14 + sensei) == 15

      dead ==== 4(Hayashi Kouta,,,Kogure Naofumi,,,Sakurasaki Issei,,,(Wakaba Hiiro***))

      yuugo(crazy) + yuurie(saint of church) == 2

      shun + katia == 2

      Sophia(akiko/rihoko)'vamp girl' + kyoya()'future oni'== 2

      lastly kumoko == 1

      explanation
      (she was originally a spider in the classroom reincarnated with human consciousness, will and memory{soul} in the dungeon[[[the soul is wakaba hiirro]]])

      and that's how at the same time wakaba is dead but remains as a part of kumoko.

      ps:: all of this info gathered from 'wiki', comments and WN up to now.

  12. Muuuu~ I feel kinda torn since both main and this chapter ended at a cliffhanger. I want to know what happened to kumoko after her upgrade, but I also want to know what kumoko here is going to do.

  13. in which chapter continue with this side story? I looked at the titles of the raws by GT and I can not find it> _ <

    1. The shun side stories are on a cliffhanger now.


      Following from now on is the side stories from the vampire girl perspective ( blood chapters)
      And kyoya side storys (oni chapters)
      We get to see their brutal training ark

      And we should stop calling them side stories because they're not.

      It's literally just from the perspective of another character

    2. although I don't care one bit about shun himself, it's quite painful to got left with when he about to gaze upon our great goddess kumoko-sama. (I assume she already become goddess by then)

      Delete
    3. The author is seriously a dick for ending things right as he learns Taboo. Unless this is the end of seeing things from a future perspective and next we see him the main story will have caught up?

      Delete
    4. This is all main story. I think the only chapters that could be called side stories are the ones shown from the point of non-reincarnated people.All the stories of the reincarnated peoples (and maybe Ronant) should be considered part of the main story.
      Its not that these chapters are that bad or boring, its just that the chapters with Kumoko are better and more interesting and most people read this because of her.

      Delete
    5. They are a part of the main canon but not exactly part of the main story. The center of the story is Kumoko and while this connects to it it's also seperate in that it's taking place in a different time from from the main story.

      I'm simply calling Kumoko's story the main to distinguish it from the future story. Still given how the cliffhanger ended when Shun finally means Kumoko I wonder if we won't see him again until the main story finally catches up to this point.

      Delete
    6. I can somehow guess what happens in the blood chapters?
      Sophias grows up, gets appraised, since she´s a high-ranking nobles daughters, people see she´s a Vampire and drive her out? Something like that? xD

    One vote that she killed herself

    1. Who knows. Even the raws haven't reached that point yet.
      I think she probably went crazy, but don't think she killed herself. Probably.

      Delete
    2. I honestly don't get some of these guy's love for her. She's just another brocon imouto, and not one of the more impressive crazy ones like abnormal kei. I said before, if she lives, kills herself, or commits murder-suicide on Shun, there is no gain/loss to the story.

      Delete
    3. it's not that her death would hurt the story it's just that it would be sad. Like if you saw a kitten get killed it wouldn't affect the world in any way but you'd be "aww the poor thing".

      It's the same here it would just be sad for her to die considering she's just an innocent little girl who got caught up in the craziness the reincarnated people brought and she doesn't even know any of this so she's likely confused on what happened at why.

  17. It's no big deal that Kumoko = Wakaba instead of Rihoko, right?
    It's true that we were led astray by the idiot hero Shun who peek at Rihoko before he died.
    But Kumoko = baldy(a paper thin armor game character) still true, right?

    So eventhough we were wrong there's no big issue that affect the story so far, right?
    Or am I missing something?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no you're right
      Kumoko is the school idol Wakaba, who's a gamer that plays the character "Baldy".
      It was never Rihoko in the first place.
      It doesnt affect anything, just surprising.

      Delete
    2. Right. The only surprising thing is that sensei + 25 students (including Wakaba and Rihoko) + D (who is one of the students) = 27 people. Therefore something fishy is going on.

      There are other inconsistencies and contradictions, and there are many explanations. The simplest one is:

      D is Wakaba. Kumo-chan is neither Wakaba nor Rihoko, she's... something else that was made to take the place of Wakaba among the reincarnated -- so that nobody would notice that Wakaba had not died.

      Delete
    3. 26 not 27.
      There should be originally 25 never incarnated but with all the numbers put together equals 26.( 27 if added D who SHOULD be outside)

      So my assumption is that D is hiding somewhere in there

      Delete
    4. Or was actually one of the Dead Boys.

    5. It also does show that Kumoko had some self-image issues. Other people may idolize her but she seems to be very negative about herself if she was Wakaba.

    6. being an idolized highschool girl usually has a lot of problem. Thing of all the anime, manga, and novels you've seen with idolized, pretty, anti-social girls. How does that work for them?

  18. So both Vampire girl and another person besides Kumoko who reincarnated as a monster are working with her to fix this world? Interesting. At the very least it's good to know Vampire girl wasn't forgotten and Kumoko gets real allies.

    I wonder though what will happen to Shun who will now learn the contents of Taboo.

    ReplyDelete
  25. The more I reread the previous chapters with the appearances of D, the more I'm convinced that she's Kumoko's "original" person. The author put a cartload of hints in there. And later, too. Recall, if you wish, how Kumoko dealt with her spawn (the "excellent brats"): she was like "Go into the world! Kill monsters! Show me your guts! And, become stronger, or... die!!! Mhwah hwah hwah!" D's attitude towards Kumoko is exactly the same.

    No matter how you look at it, right now, with the evidence we have, the strongest theory is this one: Wahaba is D, Kumoko is a copy she placed in the game universe to disguise the fact that she didn't die like the other students.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There's no reasoning behind D being the "original"and kumoko being a "fake" it all.

    6. You guys being kind of mean to Arnold.
      Also I agree with him it still too fast to draw that conclusion. There is nothing that support it all of you just said is nothing,but hypothesis. In the first place nothing say that D is a women, heck is D even a student. All D ever say he/she is part of the class, D could be some assistant teacher.

      Also if that's the case Gyuri wouldn't have any reason on sparring Kumoko live. If she just a mere copy of D, he will just destroy it. After all their relationship isn't really good.

      Delete
    7. Actually, Arnold has a very bad reputation around here for spoilers, so whatever he says has potential to spoil the story for those who have not read ahead, even his "no this is not true"s.

      When he says something like that, it is potentially because he read ahead and is posting spoilers, it is a very bad habit of his and there are already some (me included) calling for a ban so that he doesn't ruin the story for the rest of us.

    1. Oh my goodness, it's true. You both saw it through. Nene is so right! I didn't notice it before, but Kumoko managing her spiderspawns and D dealing with Kumoko are practically character clones. They go through the same mental process and experience the same feelings. The both or them are so identical it's just amazing. Another piece of hinted evidence for the D=Wakaba, Kumoko=Copy conjecture!

    2. Yes I noticed it too. It's the whole "go, my creature, fight monsters for my enjoyment" and "fufufu, I'm so nasty, it's cool to be evil" mentality. They both have that slightly villainous side (we the readers actually don't mind because of the cuteness, lol). But seriously D/Wakaba and Kumoko are so like minded and similar in reactions they are like two peas in a pod.

  30. Can anyone explain to me how do you know Wakaba is a popular girl? How can the vampire girl be the rihoko?

    1. One of the Side/Shun stories called Wakaba the class "Bishojou", which basically translates to the class "beauty".

      Rihiko was the "dark aura" girl, but in this chapter, it seems that she's no longer as shy and quite domineering as a vampire.

  33. I think it would be weird if her original name showed up in her own appraisal since she knows her own name...i think the two names in appraisals only apply because she had the ruler of wisdom even if thats not the case showing both names in the appraisal of your self is the equivalent of having your name written in your underwear its redundant cause you know its urs...when shun and katia used the appraisal stone for there ceremony @ court it was them appraising them selfs so it would only show there current names
