Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? The Sword King and the Magician

The Sword King and the magician.
Changed master swordsman to Sword Saint.
Second chapter/the latest chapter of the raw. Started translating at 9:47 p.m. and ended at 11:16 p.m.
Managed to get it translated before my posting time.

The author wrote Nyodoz at first, then it became Nyudoz again. And, the author used Rengzand instead of Rengzant.

The Sword King and the magician

「And so, you missed the Ogre?」
「Yes. Thinking about that escape speed, we might get killed if we continue fighting」

It actually was even equal to Nyodoz.
Nyodoz might be in danger without my assistance.
Because even Nyodoz who's called the Sword Saint uselessly was like that, I don't think that the adventurers and the ordinary soldiers there can do anything.

I reported it to the man in front of me.
To the Sword Emperor who stands at the top of the Rengzand Empire.

「I see. If you try do defeat it from the front, it will only increase the damage in vain, huh?」
「That's right. Although it might be able to manage somehow if the empire elites are gathered, only me and Nyodoz who can move, right?」
「Quite so」

The Sword Emperor sighs deeply.
Although someone might warn him usually, there are only me and the Sword Emperor in this place.
I will let you sigh.
This guy should have accumulated many things.

「It looks like you're having a hard time」
「Because there's a little people that I can trust in both the inside and the outside」
「Oh. That means that I'm trusted?」
「I trust you in a sense. You are only interested in magic, and you completely ignore the authority, isn't it? If I can even prepare the bait called intellectual curiosity about magic, you will work obediently」
「Kakaka! You're saying it!」

It's not wrong.

「Is there any purpose that I was demoted?」
「First is the pressure of the Divine Word Religion. Second is as a force that can move freely, and the third is to make sure that you are not involved in needless troubles. About like that」
「After all, there's the movement to make me do this and that, huh?」

Although I expected it, I was more desperate, huh?

「The Divine Word Religion doubts you saying that the Hero rescue play was too good. But actually, how is it?」
「Well, I was only given the role to rescue the Hero. Originally, I intended to raise the Hero with my own hands after that」

Although the time was short with Julius, he absorbed my teachings well.
Maybe because he has an obedient personality, he understood it quick.
If there's the period to teach him more properly, he might surpass me and arrive at the essence of the magic someday.

「The Hero is the prince of the Anareito Kingdom and the Divine Word Religion is assisting. Something like entrusting him to our country is impossible」
「I understand it. That's why, I said that I will go and teach him, but the dumbass of the Divine Word Religion rejected me」
「Considering the other side, the fellow who hides the truth can't be trusted」

Even you.
I never did anything guilty.
I only obey that person's instruction.

「You don't have the intention to tell the truth to me either, right?」
「Nothing can be done even if I tell you. Don't worry. I won't do something that would harm the empire」
「I hope so」
「When you always do foolish things, I might be disgusted with you」
「I would be troubled like that」

It's not a joke.
If you do something ashamed any further, it's interesting to return all my titles and inheritances to the empire and leave.

「If you abandon me now, the empire's future would be dark」
「That's exaggerating. My power is of no importance」
「You should review your own value a little more」
「It's the judgment after reviewing. I understood that I was extremely conceited up until now」

Because I met that person, I was able to aware of my inexperience.
And, there's still a height.

「Judging from me, I think that you have the worthy ability to be conceited」

The Sword Emperor sighs exaggeratedly.
Well, because this person has a hard time with his lack of ability.
The present Sword Emperor is capitalizing on the fame of his parent.
It's a fact to be said so.
While naming as the Sword Emperor, he's inferior to Nyudoz in ability. But having said that, his political ability is not remarkable.
In short, he's an ordinary man.

It's also because the retired previous Sword Emperor was great.
After all, he's the sword teacher of the previous Hero.
Even though he has retired, he's a swordsman who overwhelms Nyudoz.

This guy who grew up being shown the back of his great father is doing his best well judging from me.
Although he's doing his best, unfortunately, he don't have the caliber to stand at the top after all.
Because the Demons have become quiet, there was no war-like war recently. It reach the point that the nobles use their authority from the inside, and he did well to even suppress it, and prevent the empire from disintegrating.
That's also because the nobles see the predecessor's appearance when seeing this guy's back, and he manage to hold it because they didn't take poor actions.

When the parent is superior, the child is difficult.
Come to think of it, although it seems that this guy's son is also superior, is it alright?

「By the way, how's your son?」
「You mean Yuugo? That might be not good」
「Mu? I heard that he's an exaggerated monster from the rumor」
「Don't call the son of another person as a monster. But, I will forgive you. Even if I see him, he's a monster. Both the body and the mind」

It's serious somehow.

「That is loved by God naturally. However, he's self-conceited because of it. And, there's no owner of power who can correct the self-conceit. It will be good if Father is here at such a time, but I don't even know where is that person now」
「Should I correct him with willpower?」
「It's probably impossible. The nobles who abandoned me are protecting that. Although that is overflowing with talents, the mind is immature. He's flattered by the nobles and becomes conceited. Pitifully, I can neither restrain that nor separating that from the nobles. Even if you try to contact that, you will probably be obstructed」
「How troublesome. Then, I shall pass」
「That's better for you」

Although it's harsh, child rearing is a parent job, huh?
I should not get involved in it deeply because it seems troublesome.

「Returning to the talk, I decided to leave the Ogre in question to the dark side」
「Dark side?」
「Umu. The combat is avoided directly, and guide the Ogre into the Demons territory」
「I see. Pushing it to the Demons, huh?」
「That's right. Although I don't know whether it will go well or not, it's more realistic that losing soldiers in vain. Several villages have already been destroyed. It's necessary to drive the Ogre out of the Humans territory before the damage spreads any further」

Well, that's appropriate.
If it goes well, it's a congratulatory matter that the Ogre and the Demons will crush each other.
I wanted to talk with that Ogre if possible, but it's impossible with that state.
If it's a dangerous creature that scatters such killing intent, I don't think that even the Demons would try to talk to it.


  1. thanks for the translation

  2. Thank you for the chapter :)

  3. Next time on Shiro-chan's Vampire: She will talk to the Ogre!

    ...not a spoiler since the chapters have caught up...

    1. 《Skill proficiency reached. Skill 『Spoiler LV2』 has become 『Spoiler LV3』》
      lol :P

    2. well your right about that...

      there will be no such thing as spoiler from now on...

    3. Not unless I can post faster than you can read the chapter

    4. Umm, is that possible? I mean, is there anyone here who read comment first? I don't think someone'd be purposely go to comment section first unless aiming for first comment.

    5. I think the Ogre is the one who will talk to Vampii.

    6. Uwaa. Make sure not to raise your『Spoiler』skill to level 10. You'd acquire『Taboo』and we all know what that would mean.

    7. yeah from now on the only spoilers possible are maybe for the one raw chapter that may not be translated yet. But a spoiler from the next chapter isn't a big deal anyway.

    8. @Gil Seeing his super high stats when Sofia met him, he's probably in berserk mode and couldn't return to normal, even when he was appraised it was not obstructed, so no talking until someone dispels that wrath skill.

    9. they had a huge battle then suddenly a steamy adult XXX scenes that lasted for a few days while the ogre whisperes, "its all ogre now"

    10. @jon lonar he isn't on berserk mode, didn't you read last chapter? with berserk he get to 20000 and the stats she saw as 15000ish which is less, meaning he isn't berserk.

    11. that's with both wrath and War God, but it's still a problem. Since Wrath does 10x, in order for him to be using it then, he would have to make next to no progress from now until he meets Sophia. That would be borderline impossible with how much his skills have changed, how much he's leveled up and evolved, and the number of titles he has.

      So, yeah, they have to be either his base stats or the result of War God. Otherwise, his stats would be higher.

    12. remember the stat skills. 100 for each skill level and 10 for each level up. The only way that could be his Wrath stats is if the 1000 he has now is ENTIRELY from maxing out the stat skills, he does no training from here on (despite what he was saying last chapter), he received nearly no stat growth from evolving, and he evolved into an oni just now.

    13. wait...then the plus 10 for each level he would have got up until now makes it no, it isn't borderline impossible. It is literally impossible, unless his stats can decrease.

    14. @unknown between arnold and gil

      I sometimes do that when the chapter gets dark 😅 but this one is mostly light-hearted except maybe the oni chapter before.

  4. what is the release rate for the raw?
    and .thanks for the chapter

    1. At least 1 chapter per day

    2. I'm genuinely going to miss reading three chapters every night before I go to bed. I almost want the translator to do something else for a while or even take a break so we can go back to that comfortable arrangement, even if it takes time.

      ...but honestly a chapter of Kumo a day is better than none at all.

  5. Thanks for the chapter, but I will admit, I'm sad that you have caught up. I was getting used to 3 a day.

  6. Sulk. No more reading ahead...
    Anyhow, it seems like Wrath's stats at the time of his fight with vamp-chan might actually reach count stop when he activates his Wrath skill. Which means, shouldn't he then stand a chance against Ariel? No matter how small that chance would be. Ariel still has the upper hand when comes down to skills after all.

    1. no. First of all his stats may have already been getting a boost from at least war and magic god. He may have also used his weapon create to make stat boosting weapons. Besides Ariel has gluttony and abyss magic. Wrath has nothing that can stand up to that.

      Even a squad of high level Earth Dragons were just toys to her.

    2. There's no indication that the status changes to reflect buffs. It's only the base.

    3. I never said that Wrath would actually win against Ariel. I still consider her an utter monster that's way ahead of Wrath. It's no big difference between 90 000 and 99 999 anyway and she has a very large advantage over him when it comes to skills. For example like you said she has the Abyss magic and he has just Dark resistance LV1 (which is why vamp-chan has not all that bad cards against him).

      But. He most certainly wasn't using his Wrath skill. Considering that he went through evolution at least 4 times from now until he meets her, thinking that his stats are around 1600 is just plain idiocy. And I doubt he had any buffs activated at that time. He was up against weaklings so it was not necessary.

    4. Oh and yeah. Wrath does not only multiply the base stats by x10 but also the buffs. I mean in the previous battle Wrath's stats without buffs were around 1000, together with the buffs 2000, and after Wrath was activated they rose to 20 000 not 11 000.

      On the other hand Wrath's effect might weaken if the user's stats are far too high, like when the auto-recovery stops working properly from a certain level of strength.

  7. thanks for the chapter translation...

  8. ooh, so that's why He appeared near Sofia's school.

    1. "The expedition destination is the forest at the position about 2 days walk from the Demon King Castle."

      how is this close to the school?

    2. The school is further into Demon territory than, say, Magic Mountain. That's considerably close to the school.

  9. A great Sword Saint of that caliber huh? Did we ever read of a monstrous swordman like that before?

    1. What is the Sword Saint to the Sword God?

    2. This chapter most likely served as foreshadowing.

  10. Huh, at current present time, Oni-san with Wrath activated has base stats exceeding Ariel.
     Average Offensive Ability:158880(Details)
     Average Defensive Ability:158230(Details)
     Average Magic Ability:177600(Details)
     Average Resistance Ability:178080(Details)
     Average Speed Ability:157730(Details)

    1. Pretty much think that 99 999 represents count stop. It just won't get any higher than that. Too much of a burden for the system.

    2. Doesn't mean he would win.
      He's in Berserker mode.
      She's in calculated killer mode

      And besides Ariel has a massive amount of stock energy so she wins the long run guaranteed.

      She is an endurance character built to drag the fight out for a long time and the more he waste energy the more she gains time.

      Plus the fact that she's practically immune to just about every type of attack

    3. It's likely that the stats shown in Blood 26 were the stats after Wrath was applied. So stats before Wrath would be around 1,600.

    4. Since his stats right now, approximately 8 years before blood 26, are in 1000s, it seems unlikely that his stats will only be 1600

    5. 「Physical Nullity」 「Flame Resistance LV5」 「Water Current Nullity」 「Storm Nullity」 「Earth Nullity」 「Lightning Nullity」 「Holy Light Resistance LV8」 「Darkness Nullity」 「Heavy Nullity」 「Abnormal Condition Nullity」 「Acid Nullity」

      With all that broken skill even Oni has 100x stat he can't win again Ariel.

    6. he probably at least had war god and maybe magic god active. So the stats shown were his enhanced ones not his normal ones and like was said Ariel was kind of maxed out so even with Wrath he can't surpass her.

    7. And also even though she doesn't have the ruler version she also has rage level 9. Plus everything else I'm forgetting to add that might add some massive corrections to her status

    8. I think his status where he met Sophia is already boosted with Wrath, so his real status hasn't change much from when he fought the Old Man Duo.

    9. he wasn't using wrath. It would actually be impossible for his stats to be that low while using it at that point, if you consider the stat skills and the level difference.

    10. But, even Ronant only around 1000, and he level 60 or something. I know you want to say monster stronger than human, but there supposed to be a limit.

    11. that's not the problem though. The stat skills give 10 for every level if their already maxed. If they aren't, he would get more than that for leveling up the skill. It's mathematically impossible for him to be using wrath.

    12. -Andre B
      ... What? Wrath is a sin skill. It doesn't level. It's the final product in Anger > Rage > Wrath, and, again, doesn't level. We haven't gotten a description for it (Sophia would be our best bet for getting one sooner than later) yet.

    13. i think you added 1 too many zeros

    14. Ariel is 90K + 99K (reserve stocks from Gluttony) = 189K so where do see him being bigger than her? Also Abyss Magic is literally GG no re for everyone that doesn't cheat like Kumoko so there's that too.

  11. Congrats on catching up with the raws. It has been a long journey.
    iyaaa gokurou-san.

  12. Hey guys! Can someone tell me what will happen if we leave Shiro-chan in a room of kids?

    1. Somebody would have to repaint the red walls white again?

    2. Depends. What flavor of kids are we talking about?
      White? Black? Yellow? Pinkish?

    3. Free PSTD for everyone!

    4. With or without alcohol? Without, she'd likely 'port out, ignore them, or bind and gag them all.

  13. That kid will eventually be force to learn Immortal before Shiro-chan let her leave the room.

  14. in the end it's draw and shiro need to interrupting their duel before kyouya surely kill sophia in his wrath. even kin domination overwritten by that skill.

    also confirmed that yuugo before is weakling small fry.

    1. We don't know Sophia's stats so don't they "surely".

    2. She has no real battle experience though and no decent weapons while he's fought for years and has several enhancement skills.

      It's possible it won't be as one sided as people are imagining but it's not likely she'd be able to win in a serious fight. Not unless she secretly got the [Envy] skill. Depending on it's effect she might win against him with it.

    3. She fought with Shiro every night for three years. SURELY her battle experience are more than Kyouya. His experience are from bunch of small flies not from god. It's different.

    4. -BEAR
      She fought a strikingly one-sided battle with Shiro, repeatedly, with not life, but limb on the line. Specializing in magic, no clear weapon.

  15. seems like someone actually realize it huh. that's right. old men is actually all the rage right now oni-kun.

  16. 《Skill proficiency reached. Skill 『Humility LV9』 has become 『Humility LV10』》

  17. And then the demons recruit the ogre so instead of a rampaging solo ogre you now get one organized and in an army...

    1. He works for Ariel and Shiro not the demon army

    2. As far as the humans are concerned it's the same thing. He's still serving as a general of the demon army and killing humans. Who he actually answers to makes little difference.

  18. Just you wait Ronant is going to woo Spider with his old man-ness.

  19. Thanks alot for the chapters :D

  20. Thanks alot for the chapters :D

  21. This comment has been removed by the author.

    if you're searchin for a new story. translate Konjiki no moji please! it's been dropped since two weeks ago at chapter 184. by kirikotranslation and n00btranslation.
    in konjiki no moji story these is a super op main character. he became very op at chapter 80s or between 120s. and the story is the best game-world i have ever read. consider it please.

    1. furthermore, konjiki no moji has about 750 chapters. and translation is dropped at 180s for now.

    2. The latest chapter was 183, and it was posted october 8. It's not dropped. some people are still doing it.

  23. Thanks for the chap! Gonna miss reading this 3 chapters a day in the morning. But oh well,i will continue to read it anyway ;)

  24. so many ppl wanting this site to start another translation...

    so....if you are bored, why not starting another translation and release seven chapters of Maou Shoujo Ariel-chan & company per week? (Meaning you translate a day or two in the week and release all the chapters in one day instead of daily)

    wouldn't that be nice?

    Btw, if you starting anything new, pick something you like ;3

    Like...don't know...Accel World (?)

    Or....Don't know....something along the lines of

    Elf Tensei
    Jashin Tensei

    just kidding xD

    But really.....wouldn't you translate muimui-tan?

    1. guy's...can we keep these kind of posts to a minimum? It's bad form to make unsolicited requests for translations.

    2. I agree, if the author start making a poll, then you guys can start this discussion.

  25. To think he took Shiro words seriously. He is probably the first worshiper. Well she is a God now so...

  26. Thank you for the chapter and all the hard work.
