Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Elf Village Battle 8

Elf Village Battle 8.

Elf Village Battle ⑧


There was a sign that Sensei lost consciousness at the back.
Although the wound is deep, it should not be a fatal wound.

「Anna, Sensei's treatment」

Because I rushed in a hurry, Anna who pants seem to be worsened, but it can't be helped.
I observed the state of the front line with "Clairvoyance".
And, when I saw Yuugo appeared, I rushed immediately.
Although it's a selfish action disregarding the Elves' instructions, killing Yuugo here has a big meaning.
And, I want them to cancel my arbitrary act because of that.
In addition, I thought that only Yuugo who I must bring it to an end by my hands.

「Hyrinth-san, please protect Sensei and Anna」

Hyrinth-san consents briefly.
Usually, he would stop me if I fight with the enemy's general alone.
But, I can't yield only this time.
I think that Hyrinth-san understood it.

「Then, I will be Yuri's opponent」
「Katia, Yuri is」
「I know it. She's the same as me before. I won't kill her」

Complicated feelings were able to grasped on Katia's face.
The anger towards Yuugo.
The pity towards Yuri.
Not only that, but Yuri's appearance might be seen as her former self.
As the body that has been brainwashed by Yuugo.
If something was different, it might be just reverse that stood next to me.

Katia should have an extraordinarily strong thought against Yuugo.
But, she suppressed it, and handed it over to me.
I won't waste that will.

「Ah ah ah. Not only Oka-chan, but you're also here」
「Ah, In order to defeat you」
「Ha! How funny. You? Me? There's no way you can!!」

The pressure that seems to rule this place gushes out of Yuugo's body.
I appraise Yuugo while holding the sword.

 Skill points:217
 「Monster Killer」 「Ruler of Greed」 「Ally Killer」 「Human Killer」 「Ruler of Lust」 「Human Slaughterer」 「Merciless」 「Monster Slaughterer」 「Master of Frenzy」 「Conqueror」 「Leading One」 「King」』

Irregular status.
Although it's low overall, there's a lot of skills.
The skill points of the halfway figure with odd amount.
This is the power that Yuugo scraped up by "Greed".
The partly strong skills are probably acquired by the effect of the title.
The skills acquired by the Ruler of Lust and Greed titles would be powerful, and there's a title called Master of Frenzy that I have never seen before.

And, the one that catch my eyes is the "Demon King" skill.
The "Demon King" and "Hero" skills can be acquired either by using a large amount of skill points or by skill proficiency.
Because Yuugo calls himself as the Hero, I don't think that he will acquire the "Demon King" skill purposely.
In other words, Yuugo acquired the "Demon King" skill by skill proficiency.

Even I don't know how to gain the skill proficiency to acquire the "Demon King" skill.
However, it's said that the "Hero" skill might be acquired if a person take the action that seems like it.
In fact, Hyrinth-san said that he acquired the "Hero" skill by skill proficiency.
In other words, the "Demon King" skill that pairs with the "Hero" probably has the same condition as the "Hero".
And, Yuugo achieved it.
He has achieved it.

I raise my status by activating "War God Spirit" and "Magic God Act", and I focus on Yuugo.
In that face, there's a smile that went mad.
It seems that it's impossible to go back anymore.

I pointed the sword to such a former classmate calmly.


  1. Replies
    1. Not really, he's one of the strongest humans already, according to the info on average human strength. Haha but of course, the status are only 4 digit? Pft

    2. One of Kumokos Children could one-hit him xD
      Yuugo, the big fish in a glass of water :p

    3. ermmm. probably one of the last status screen comes.

    4. I miss those honestly. I wish we saw one who Kumoko was an Arachne. Now that she's probably become an admin she probably won't even have a stat screen anymore.

    5. sadly, I feel obligated to do this:

      "Shun, what does Appraisal-sama say about her stat chart?"

  2. taboo lvl 9 huh...

    he will learnd the truth if lives long enough huh...

    1. Funny thing is they're both lvl 9 taboo.

    2. Lulz, would be funny if they both get the whole truth during this fight, and then make a mental break down parade xD

  3. Average low hmm... shun kun, you seem a bit arrogant.

    And knowing you. i know you won't kill him... damn.

    1. No I bet he will try, but he'll fight with his consciousness and during that waste of time something will happen, like always..

    2. He was talking about the skills in that line and they are, on average, low. He's got a bunch of Lv1 & LV2 skills. Now do the math.

    3. But remember skills are important. Kumoko has mentioned how low level or low stat opponents were still dangerous at times because of their skills. Yugo doesn't really have any decent battle skills besides stat boosters and even those are just so so. Greed is a nice skill but knowing Yuugo he only slaughtered weaklings so the skill is wasted on him honestly.

    4. They both should have max appraisal. So one or both of them is being stupidly over-confident.

    5. ... If the number is under 5 out of 10, which is is for over half of Yuugos skills, it's low. Has nothing to do with arrogance.

  4. Thanks for the chapters turb0

  5. Oh look, a battle of the demon king (lol) and the hero (lol)

    1. The last two, no, three times i remember, the hero lost tho.

      Ariel (victorious) Vs Kumo [fatality(?)]
      Kumo (victorious) Vs Julius [K.O.]
      Shiro (victorious) Vs Julius [fatality]

      Yuugo Vs Shun

    2. You may as well shorten it as battle between (lol)s.

    3. This comment has been removed by the author.

    4. Julius at least won against that Demon General guy, before Shiro killed him?

    5. And if it weren't for Ariel that exact demon general would have been the Demon Lord

    6. That was another general. They mentioned 2 demons that are capable/strong enough to become demon kings:
      -the one killed be the Queen taratect
      -the other is Balto (i think), the older brother of that general killed by Julius and is the secretary of the Demon King Ariel

  6. can't find the magic cancelling skill.
    it's the sword after all, i guess.

  7. This comment has been removed by the author.

  8. Uwaaahhh~ it feel like a joke fight between babies when you know someone like kumoko and ariel. Those excellent brats that kumoko gave birth to ca probably wipe these shithead in a matter of seconds.

    1. In the end I think that is the greatest problem with these side stories. If you read these alone and added a few details to fill on some gaps this battle would be pretty intense.

      But because we know just how beyond them Kumoko is this all feels rather pointless. Like this is only happening because Kumoko is letting it and she could wipe the floor with all of them in seconds if she wanted.

    2. And i stikk think that it will happen xD
      It´s like they waited for it:
      Humand invade the Elves
      Destroy the Barrier, covered by the Humans magic
      Let them have some tearinducing pointless fun
      Slaughter the Elves and the Humans, while they are gathered xD

    3. I mean, it just shows how exotremely stupid Yuugo is. they are at war with the Demonrace and then go and piss off the elves?
      they have no chance of survival

    4. It's because he thinks he's OP and no one can beat him. So he figures he can do whatever the hell he wants and doesn't realize how badly he's about to get owned.

    5. @Metazoxan

      That's more or less it though. I said before that Shun and his group are more or less ignorant of the world and can't be involved in world building and such. It's like that, they are ignorant of the greater problems of the world and squabble as ants before giants.

      Hey, arnold, lettuce, isn't now around when the author made that announcement? Is it ok to say it now or should we wait a little?
      (yes, this is mostly teasing)

    6. or maybe it's more "ants before titans"?

  9. Thx for chapter
    After seeing kumoko in action and her skills stats , i feel weird when i see their battles as the strongest of the human race (well elf for sensei )

  10. New banner, huh? Now lets add a sadako head and torso to complete the image.

  11. This comment has been removed by the author.

  12. The white kumoko is a nice touch on the banner

  13. just noticed the white kumoko xDDDD

  14. There should be a cute halfbody on that white spider~

  15. Yuugo isn't weak?
    How strong is Shun now?
    By stat alone Yuugo is as strong as the earth dragon Shun met before(around 12,000 overall).
    Well, Shun did blow off that dragon in one hit so may be Yuugo really look weak in Shun's POV.

    1. I don't know what dragon are you talking about, but the one they killed in the labyrinth had stats only at around 2500-3600. It had lower stats than Yuugo.

    2. And that was a new evolved level 2 dragon.
      And its kills were higher also.

      And remember greed not only takes skills but also take stats too

    3. If Yuugo wasn't such a noob and spent a few months in the great dungeon he'd be unstoppable.

  16. There's a new banner, yay! I love the cute white spider!

  17. A friend just told me something about this story arc that I want to share with you all. Ah, but don't worry, no spoiler. ^_~

    The author of this novel loves plot twists. You know that, right? When it looks like a big reveal has come, we must always take it with suspicion -- because a new twist in the future may very well show that, actually, things were not what they seemed.

    One of the big unsolved mysteries is Kumoko's original identity in Japan. Hints have been dropped, but nothing is clear so far. (In fact, some pieces of info seem to contradict the others.) But recently Kumoko became an Arachne with a human upper body, and she said that she looked just like before, with a bit of Ariel mixed in! This means, if one of the reincarnated students were to meet her, they should be able to identify her!

    Well, according to my pal, such a meeting eventually happens, and the guy who sees Kumoko says: "OMFG YOU ARE ******!!!"

    Yup, a Japanese name. Big reveal scene. The identity mystery -- solved.

    Or not.

    This is what my friend said: remember what kind of author writes this story. Remember that the author loves plot twists and phony big reveals. Remember everything that has been established with certainty so far, especially by D and Gyurigyuri. Most importantly: remember how many students were reincarnated, keep tabs on them now, and _do_the_math_. And always keep in mind that this author doesn't make mistakes: when something in the story seems odd or doesn't add up, it's a hint that things are not the way you think they are.

    So basically what I want to say is: don't trust big reveals. Remember the author loves to trick and deceive us. Ah, but you knew it already, right? Guess there was no point in writing this, then. Eheheh. ^.^

    1. I donßt think anybody really cares about her japanese name xD
      My gues is that she´s the hiki they calle "Rihoko" :p

    2. Tomorrow shall be the day you learn.

    3. What is this guy talking about?
      Sound like someone use MT.

    4. Everyone, read carefully Shirobara's message! His friend knows what he's talking about. The advice is good. Whatever big reveal comes in the next chapters (Kumoko is Rihoko, or Wakaba, or Sakurasaki, or Buster Keaton, whatever...) you must remember: DON'T BUY IT.

      Because if you do the math, you will realize: the numbers don't add up, the mystery is intact and the truth is still hidden. Yup yup.

      And, Cabman: sorry, my poor boy, you got all wrong in the end. :P

    5. Though I know what he's talking about...I don't particularly care. The theory they've been crafting would hurt the story more than help if you ask me. On that grounds, I don't buy it and feel that it would depreciate everything that happened if it was true...

    6. To be honest that serious utter bullshit to me.
      It's a theory with no credible grounds or fact.

      And yes I get the numbers don't add up that's probably something else.

      This so kumo-ko not being real thing however sounds like something someone pulled out of their ass

    7. This comment has been removed by the author.

    8. Sigh. Everyone was being so careful not to spoil anything...

      Shirobara, Nene, Andre, everyone was being ambiguous and talking in roundabout phrases... and I myself was thinking this mystery was such a thrill...

      Then the guy with urinary incontinence came, couldn't control his weak bladder, and spouted: "This 'Kumoko not being real' thing... blah blah blah."

      Fuck you, dude, fuck you very much.

    9. Spoil what? Illogical bullshit someone pulled out their ass?

    10. It's just one of a few theories people have regarding some of the reveals, and how certain numbers don't seem to add up, unless certain characters have been flat-out lying, or there's some details not cleared up yet.

    11. I don't see the reason why that one would lie..
      whoops, actually see one. but I don't think that one would lie.

      However, there's no reason for that one to don't lie.
      So anything could happen.

    12. Things that are confirmed about Kumoko, she is a real girl not a G.I.R.L, next is she look pretty according to the old man and confirmed herself that it look like her previous life

    13. 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' + kyouya()'future oni'== 2

      lastly kumoko == 1

      (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]]])

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

  18. Thanks for the chapter.
    Yay, white kumoko! Nice banner.

  19. White Kumoko Banner.. Somehow.. That banner are more creepy than cute.

  20. Hahaha, Yuugo has the [Stupefaction] skill. I wonder, does the skill make him act like an idiot or did he obtain it by acting like one? :-P
