Kumo desu ga, Nani ka? 236

Yep it’s just been a day but here’s the first normal (non batch) release.

Wrath goes bump in the night…

236 – The dragon, the pitfall, and some kinda monster hunter…

A rather unexpected situation has occurred. I found the ogre-kun who had gone missing, but it was in the middle of a death match with the renowned Ice Dragon. WOW. As clear as day he hath become berserk. He’s really a wild and savage oni now. He has no trace of humanity in him though. Ah, it’s hopeless.

The Magic Mountains are guarded by the Ice Dragon, but even though it should be considerably strong, it’s ogre-kun who has the upper hand. It feels like his skills haven’t developed that much, but his status is on a whole other level.

With one blow from a magic sword, the Ice Dragon’s scales are easily being cut off. He’s dual-wielding. Exactly like “Demon’s dance”.

It’s also a matter of bad affinities. One of magic swords ogre-kun is using has the fire attribute. The fire attribute is harsh against the Ice Dragon. Also, it’s significant that he’s not using magic. The magic obstruction that is the characteristic of the dragon species, it basically becomes useless when the opponent doesn’t cast magic. The attribute attack from the magic swords is also a form of magic skill, but since it’s not magic from the System’s perspective the effects cannot be blocked. In short, taking blows one after another from the worst attribute, the Ice Dragon has now been driven into a corner.

Consider how I was having such hardship with the Earth Dragons. The difference caused by affinities is momentous. I was a special caster type who had somehow or other gained weakness enhancing magic, right. Ogre-kun here is a hard-core fighter type. He’s completely different to me.

Ah that’s right. Speaking of the dragons, it seems that the vampire girl has developed some kind of strange skill. It was activated during a mock battle in class. White scales appeared on vampire girl’s body. The magic of the teacher who was acting as her opponent, vanished before the vampire girl. I could only consider it being the dragon scale series of skills. Furthermore, going by how the magic was completely erased, the level is extremely high. How did she obtain a skill that should be limited to the dragon species? What comes to mind is the Envy skill. I think for the privileged skill connected to the title of Ruler of Envy, perhaps they are the dragon scale series of skills. How enviable, and how envious is the holder of the Envy skill. After all, vampires already get rare skills, and she even has the ultra rare skills limited to the dragon species of all things. Sure is extravagant huh.

On top of the immortal body skill which gives her high defence from the start, she has the dragon scale defence added on top of that. Contrary to her appearance the vampire girl is overly armoured. It’s hardly something I can say of others but, she sure has no intent of dying eh.

Oops. My story wandered. And, during that time the battle between ogre-kun and the Ice Dragon was concluded. It’s ogre-kun’s victory.

Well, the Ice Dragon also did its best. But, on top of bad affinities, against an opponent with Wrath activated it’s just at too big a disadvantage. Besides, at the last moment, I think it made a good decision to use a blizzard as a smokescreen to plan an escape. For a “death before dishonour” Earth Dragon, such feelings may lead it to fight until the bitter end, but there are times when it’s necessary to turn your back to the enemy and flee. It’s good to be alive. If you’re alive then you may still get the chance to get revenge, but dying means losing everything. The Ice Dragon managed to escape from ogre-kun by a hair’s breadth.

I guess ogre-kun lost interest in the Ice Dragon after it fled, as he leaves in another direction. That direction is, bad news. Well, at the time of the battle with the Ice Dragon I had a seriously bad premonition though.

Where ogre-kun is heading to, beyond the Magic Mountains, there lies a peaceful land. Surrounded by mountains and the sea, isolated from the outside world is a strange place. At that place, there are no monsters, no strife, no discrimination, a place where humans and demons both live together in equality.

On this world, it is a unique land. Clearly, it was developed by a certain someone, an artificial paradise. That certain someone is, one of a kind. Kuro, Administrator Gyuriedistodiez. Only that god, could create such a place.

Well, I understand the goal. This is the land where souls recuperate. It shelters souls that became worn out by the System, separated from strife in order to try to prolong their lives. Because if that isn’t done, then eventually those souls will break down.

There are many humans and demons being sheltered. It feels like a single country all by itself. The meaning of that, is that there are in fact just that many humans and demons who have nearly reached their limit. Sooner or later this world will collapse. It’s obviously the case. However, I think there is a bit of a margin still. That is, something I was compelled to review after I found this sheltered land.

Basically, we’re in checkmate. The Demon King probably doesn’t know about this. She thinks that this world will be saved, so long as humans and demons are forced into a huge war, and if the scant amount of MA Energy is replenished. But, it’s not that simple. Already, even if the MA Energy is replenished it won’t be enough. Because the source of the Energy supply is about to start decreasing. Also, if my prediction is correct, then it won’t begin gradually, but all at once. At the time when I realised this it had already become way too late.

Kuro, should already be expecting that to happen to a certain extent. Even so, he took no effective actions. Even if Kuro does have some stupid reason for this place, he’s still conflicted and unable to reach a decision. Well, I do think that Kuro does have various kinds of conflicts, but while he’s been dithering the world is in danger of collapse. If only he’d been able to take brave decisions then we wouldn’t be so close to doomsday I suppose. That fool.

So if ogre-kun arrives at that sheltered land, it’s obvious that a slaughter will begin. Since Wrath has completely wiped out his sense of reason. That’s no longer a reincarnator or any such thing. Simply, an incarnation of Wrath. A single monster. I doubt that Kuro will just let nature take its course.

What to do huh. Well, I’ve already decided what I’m going to do though.

Sure enough, inside the distorted space that I’d spread out, Kuro becomes entangled. Muhaha. It’s rather like the trick of using a spiderweb, these sorts of traps are my speciality you know. And now, it’s a death chute of spider hell with swarms of clones. While I’m at it, I toss in a watch I pilfered from D’s house.

La da dee la da da. It’s the space-time management watch! It’s a D special production watch that manipulates space and time. Single use only. For the other dimension I’ve now locked Kuro into, the flow of time will be far slower than outside. With this, Kuro won’t be able to come out for several years. I’ve borrowed several other useful goods from D’s house, but every single one has some dangerous method in their usage. In D’s particular manner, I think of these as probably intended to be support materials, so I shall gratefully make use of them though. That reminds me, at some point I lost the cursed cards. To think I’d lose that dangerous stuff. Hopefully it’s not being misused somewhere.

Since I’ve successfully sealed up Kuro, now there’s nobody left who can interfere with ogre-kun. Go ahead and slaughter to your heart’s content. That’s also, for the sake of those in the protected area as well.

I’m scared of how Kuro will be when he gets out though. Well, I’ll think about it when the time comes. I’ll have ogre-kun become the scapegoat. At any rate, he’s been swallowed up by Wrath and is no longer fit for purpose.


 

Translation notes:

The dragon in the title is most likely referring to Kuro.

“As clear as day he hath become berserk” – this is said using archaic Japanese. This is almost certainly a reference to “Berserk”.

I’m using “Magic Mountains” instead of “Magic Mountain” as it’s specifically a mountain range. Literal translation would be something like “mountain-range of evil”.

“Demon’s dance” (鬼神乱舞) – a reference to a dual-wielding attack in Monster Hunter. Literally “Boisterous Dance of the Fierce God”.

“Magic skill” – the difference between “majutsu” (magic skill) and “mahou” (magic) was somewhat explained in the “Teach us D-sensei! Lesson 1” special.

“Death chute” – literally “bosshuuto”, a contraction of “bosshuu” (seizure) and “dasutoshuuto” (dust chute), used as a gimick sometimes on a particular TV program it seems. I think the “La da dee la da da” (literally teetereretteree) comes from that show too. I just made up something here.

>That’s also, for the sake of those in the protected area as well.

….hmm? for the sake of those in the protected area as well?? Did I miss something?

Sodemas
Guest

probaly relating to the fact that if their world blows up their souls cant revive anymore or something like that

Carmeops
Guest

well, the system is slowly collapsing, souls are decaying, need to kill people to gather skill power to fix it, technically speaking, killing the people from the protected area will benefit the plan, and help their souls survive longer

sherrynity
Guest

Hmm… but didn’t she say that protected area is supposed to give those decaying souls a place to rehabilitate?

Cryotic
Guest

I would guess it’s a question about efficiency, as they mentioned earlier that they are short on time.
Even though the souls are rehabilitating, it could be a slow process, and may only give a little more amount than when they originally were when born in the world.
Kumoko may have thought they can replenish more by having them dead and the soul returns to the world again and have them die again. This way will replenish more in short time, however, the souls will decay faster.

I’m not really understand,why she stop Kuro and let that oni destroy that country ?

metazoxan
Guest
Well for whatever reason the world is apparently reaching it’s limit. I’m not sure if this is in terms of population or something else but in any cause it’s about to fall. They basically need to return soul energy to the core of the world to prevent it’s collapse but Kuro and D won’t allow a simple wild massacre and Kuro especially doesn’t want to kill anyone. This is basically a chance to cause a massive death toll to restore the core a little before the main war even starts. It seems just refilling the core won’t solve the problem… Read more »

Based on my interpretation, the biggest reason is to get rid of Kuro’s hesitation. Kuro is saying that he’ll cooperate, but in the back of his mind, he’s still unwilling to slaughter and spark war for the sake of the world (as evidenced by the village which is promoting PEACE between the two races). Shiro’s destroying the village to make it clear to him that such actions are silly as they go against their purpose (restoring MA energy by inciting war between the two races). It’s a cruel thing to do, but it makes sense considering the fact that a… Read more »

In my opinion, it’s intern of souls… as she her self say that place is for souls to recharge them self, but like over use battery, and in large number ( hold a whole country rival the 2 main souls farm (demon and human nations)) the thing will only get worst.
Souls energy can go wild when people insane ( like how Shiroo see orge kun, he lose his purpose of recharge the system (some thing with divine area?)) so a recharge is needed but it not fast enough to recover the world.

Kuro is like a local manager of local run-down branch and Shirk is newly appointed manager sent from HQ.
While Kuro is reluctant for reorganization cos by his attachment to local employees, Shiro together with her team, reincarnated person, will go rampage without care to make sure the branch is saved.

Btw, Potimus is sale manager who keep selling sweet dream to locals and make no profit at all.

Pontimas is making profit for himself

Carmeops

pretty much yep, Pontimas want to be like Shiro, he doesn’t care if it cause the collapse and destruction of the planet, as long he, himself, can accomplish godhood, he don’t mind
