Kumo desu ga, Nani ka? 235

Last in the batch series. That’s all chapters I have translated for now. The following one is in progress…

Got a vampire problem? Who you gonna call…?

235 – H, help!

On confirming that the vampire girl has gained the Envy skill, I turned up at the academy dormitory to forbid her the use of the skill. My inter-personal skills are still weak, but I should be able to talk to the vampire girl fairly well. Unlike with Argnar the discussion shouldn’t take a whole damn day. So thinking that, I faced against the vampire girl in the dormitory visiting room.

「Why do I have to talk about such things?」

When I asked the vampire girl why she had acquired the Envy skill, she answered irritably. Eh? Well, it’s not like I want to know no matter what, but isn’t it bad to refuse so strongly?

「Is that all you came for?」

Perplexed, the vampire girl says that and moves to return to her own room. Hmm? Why is she in such a bad mood? It’s not like you get time of the month yet. From what my clone saw, there wasn’t anything indicating that she was in such a bad mood though.

Anyway, it would be meaningless to come all this way for just that. Though I’m interested in reason she gained the skill, I don’t actually need to know no matter what, so I’ll compromise on that and just make sure to forbid her from using the skill.

「Hey! Why do I have to listen to such an order?」

O, okay. You’re in a REAL bad mood today huh. But, this is one thing I cannot back down on.

「No matter what, it’s not allowed.」
「Such a nag. I’m free to use whatever skill I like surely?」

Eh, ehhh? Seriously, what’s with you? For her to be so hostile is totally unforeseen right?

It’s time for, THAT. The final option.

「No matter what.」

I raise my voice a little and open my eyes. Immediately, the vampire girl shudders and starts to twitch. I have learned from Argnar’s case. Laborious negotiations are impossible for me. So then, I should threaten like this from the outset, and I can then just forcibly make them listen to my orders only.

「I, I got it.」

Yup. Wonderfully efficient.

「So we’re done? Then I’ll go back.」

But, vampire girl is rather different today. She just walked off without allowing me to stop her. On top of that, immediately on returning to her room she grabs my clone and throws it into the closet. Wh, what should I do…?

Or even, what can I do? Has she lost her temper that badly?

I’ve returned to the mansion before realising it. I don’t remember how. Vampire girl’s attitude, was a big enough shock that it even gave me some pause. What’ll I do? Vampire girl has hit the rebellious age!

Is there anybody I can consult with? I’m lost on how to quell a rebellious child? Demon King – rejected. I doubt that that dunce can do something delicate, such as handling a daughter in their rebellious age. Not just to her children, but to her many grandchildren, what she’s done can’t be written off as your average child abuse.

Kuro – nope, he seems the kind of useless father who is dominated by their wife, case closed. Balto – with his everyday work even at the best of times he looks like he’s about to die from stress, so if some additional responsibility is added he seriously might die. Hoodlum – as if I could let vampire girl meet the likes of him! Argnar – though he seems to be a decent sort, he still seems to be hiding some kind of objective so no go. The other commanders – not familiar enough with them.

Oh? Now that I think about it, I guess I don’t have too many people I can rely on huh? Or rather, it’s at the level where my only friendly ally is the Demon King. I, I’m not lonely or something!

Nah, talking seriously, it’s not like personal relationships are something I’ve been particularly bothered about though. How troubling. There’s nobody to consult with. Suddenly, D’s face comes to mind, but that person is the very worst to consult with. It’s obvious that she’d definitely amuse herself and make the situation even worse.

D? Yeah? Ah! Of course there’s one! The great entity that knows all!

I immediately teleport. To Wakaba Hiiro’s dear home.

Help me, great ○○○gle-sensei!

I see, I see. The two occurring rebellious ages come in infancy and adolescence, called the first rebellious age and the second rebellious age – got it. For the vampire girl, she’s surely passed her infancy long ago and this is her second rebellious age I guess? Hrmm. Going by her body you could say that she’s still barely an infant, but inside I guess she should be a proper adult huh. But putting it that way, on the inside it wouldn’t be strange to say that she should also be past the second rebellious age too, right.

For the second rebellious age, a feeling of independence is foremost, and they react with hostility to being told by their parents to do this or that. Hmm. That’s like a perfect match with the current situation. I get it. She has separated from me at the new environment of the academy, starting to gain independence by herself, that’s the situation. Then, on suddenly being told not to use a skill, I guess anyone would be hostile after being ordered like that. But, this is for the vampire girl’s sake. The child cannot know the parent’s heart. Though I also want to support her independence, I must harden my heart.

So next, how to deal with the problem? Let’s see, let’s see. Unilaterally scolding them and opposing them both have the opposite effect? Ah, crud. I might have done that already.

Well, this can be recovered, possibly! Now then. It’s critical to watch over them with an open mind? Gently turn aside what the child says, and leaving them alone to a degree are additional options? I get it. Have faith in the child, letting them find their own way, basically. From there their feelings of independence will develop in a proper way, allowing them to become proper adults right. Only scold them when they’ve made a clear mistake, then they can return to the correct path huh. Well, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Okay then. Thank you, great teacher. For now I shall respect the vampire girl’s feeling of independence, refraining from excessive intervention. Yup. It’s the vampire girl’s second incarnation after all, I’m sure she’ll be able to mature on her own. I’ll believe in that. All I need to do is carefully watch over her. When things seem to be going in a bad direction, only then do I need to correct her

Okay! Now that I’ve decided that, I guess I’ll watch over her so that she doesn’t gain any strange skills. Then if she seems about to gain something strange, at such times I’ll then show her something better to gain instead. Yup, yup. The rebellious age, it’s not even worth fearing!


 

Translation notes:

Shiraori refers to Google as “dai-sensei” which is like saying “great sensei” (great teacher) or “sensei of sensei”.

“The child cannot know the parent’s heart” – this is a Japanese saying.

Over-protective to the adopted one, but making her own children slaves. That’s a big contrast.

Phantom

spider are meant to be like that independent from birth humans (or vampires) not both in body and mind since spider have to hunt and figth for they lives from birth , not eating any of the spider children is very kind of her (ps sorry for the poor english it is not my native language)

Let’s say that we need a batch of releases after a long period of abstinence and short quick consistent shots during a prosperous period.

Fear not, it’s going to be consistent individual releases from now on, Kari’s circumstances permitting.

Whooo! I get more doses of Kumoko! Or Shiraori if you prefer!

I wonder what happened as an aftermath to the ogre fight… Ahh! Author has get me and my knickers in such a twist!

Well, given the cliffhanger on Shun side, we know both survives, and Wrath seem to be a lot calmer at that.

Ocnilius

How crazy is it that we’re reading a series which has already given us two cliffhangers, and they’re both in the future? Like, that’s some sadistic sh*t…

Even the gods bow to the mighty power of Google

iamviruz

Er… Is Envy effect and skill stated anywhere? I can’t recall..

Thanks for the chapter~~

ANIMEPLEX
Guest

It’s basically counter magic. It does with that jammer at the robot base did.

ANIMEPLEX
Guest

And since most of the skills are magic almost all of them get shut down.
Includes things like regeneration and strengthening

iamviruz
Guest

Thanks. Do u know the side effect?

ANIMEPLEX
Guest

Something about their souls getting distorted and they go insane.
Think how older boy can suppress his rage and how shun was incapable of killing yougo because of mercy.
It probably give them an extreme idiosyncrasy toward one direction of emotional aspect. She would probably become some jealous disgusting monster driven by envy alone towards the world

iamviruz
Guest

Ah, i guess her current response/attitude towards shiro is probably due to that side effect huh. But the threat still works wonder~~

Nothing specific besides the soul corruption all ruler skills apparently have. it seems the ruler skills basically forcibly align you more and more with the respective quality. Wrath makes you more prone to anger and envy makes you even more envious of other as long as you use the skill. You generally don’t get skills unless you posses these qualities in the first place but the skills makes those qualities worse until they dominate all other traits. that might explain why the MC is such a pushover. He gained ruler skills like kindness and mercy and used them freely. Without… Read more »

Not mc, mc is shiraori/kumo chan.

The one you talking about is shun the idiotic pushover.

metazoxan
Guest

yeah. Not sure why I said MC. But anyway it’s kind of interesting to find out he’s an idiotic pushover because his soul was corrupted by skills forcing kindness and mercy to dominate everything he thinks or does.

Katsurandom

now should follow the oni series right?

The only novel I haven’t read is the only that updates!? And on top of that on a batch!? Thanks for the chapters I guess, since the other series haven’t updated, I guess I will start reading this one. Is there any romance here?

Just adorable scary spider badass and awesome fights.

gianoria7

Well, yeah, there’s some kind of romance…
But just in the side story.
Unless you consider food as a possible love interest, Kumoko never had any romance.

I thought the vampire child ruler skill is lust? Since envy is taken by that one mind controller. Not sure, been so long I forgot.

Just
Guest

Actually I think that mind controller skill is greed?

gianoria7
Member

Nah.
Yuugo has both Lust and Greed.

Lust is the skill that makes Heresy magic such as charm or mind control last forever.
Without lust, those kind of skills wouldn’t last more than a few minutes (if I recall correctly).
So Lust is the NTR Ruler Skill.

Greed is the skill that let you absorb a part of your opponent’s status and skills.
Afterall, since the status and skill are linked to the soul, Greed basically lets you absorb a part of your opponent’s soul…
Your own self probably doesn’t survive long in this situation.

First of, thanks for translating this wonderfull story, I think everyone that likes it has been missing it for quite a while now, and I am sure most of us woth dogetza while saying arigato 🙂 lol…. Thanks again, and hopefully you will be able to keep up a steady pace, ofcourse we all know if rl comes into the picture, its fine… we are quite patiant 🙂

Thanks a lot for those chapters! The rebellious age, huh? Darn, Kumo chan is so cute trying to deal with her XD

Shiro is by far my most favorited character ever of all time. You know, her whole behavior actually has a name. Its sociopathy. Its like you switch every moral, consciousness and guilt off, just living following your very own values. Sophie should consider herself lucky, not wasting stuff you’ve spent time and effort in is part of shiros values.

Only caring for those around you and making the rest suffer because you dont care at all is a symptome as well 😉

metazoxan

Judging by her talk in recent chapters it’s not completely that she can’t care about others but since the world is on the verge of collapse and D won’t let her flee the sinking ship without trying her best she has to try to keep the ship afloat any way she can. Kuro tried to keep the world together while hurting as few people as possible and now the world has reached such a state. She can’t be bothered to do things in a gentle way. But at the same time she can’t bring herself to throw her former “classmates”… Read more »

Waaiiii~ Google-sensei … Thanks for the Help ^^

Thanks for the Chapter 🙂

Raphalice
Guest

if I remember correctly, she got envy while in the academy right… also the envy of the previous life also took effect right…

I’m talking about how D was so beautiful while she was ugly and was even called names like “vampire”… I think it all started to trigger due to seeing shiro’s appearance (-eyes)

Victor DoUrden

I’m probably the only one disgusted that she makes kids without actually doing the work for it >.>

Also is easy enough to upset people by threatening to kill them time and time again… invading their privacy everyday does not help either
