Kumo desu ga, Nani ka? 238

It’s the weekend but here I am still slowly catching up with the raw releases.

Time for a walk through memory lane. Ahh, bitter-sweet youth…

238 – Academy × 2

The ojii-sama absolutely gave it his all. Against the overwhelming difference in status, he was able to close the gap with willpower alone. I’d never expected him to hold out that much. To the extent that it’s a bit of a shame for him to be left in a world like this. To the end he always did his best, and was cut down by ogre-kun. I’ll just say that his last moments were beyond splendid.

What’s curious is ogre-kun, as it seems that at the end his sanity instantly recovered. Hrm. It seems that he’s not actually been completely swallowed up by Wrath yet? Maybe even now it’s still possible for him to turn back to how he was. Though saying that, I got no idea how though. It’s possible that Kuro would know, but he’s all sealed up though. Sorry, ogre-kun. There is nothing I can do for you. Good luck.

With such feelings I’m leaving ogre-kun alone for a while. The other problems are at the human academy and at the demon academy.

At the demon academy, I guess you could say that the problem is the vampire girl building a reverse harem, and then sucking their blood. The impression I got, is that when she’s sucking their blood they’re being mesmerized by hypnotism, or something? Somehow the ones who have their blood sucked don’t remember, it seems. Hmm-mm. In that case, well, is there a problem?

The vampire girl is a vampire after all. Being a vampire basically means having to suck blood you know. If anything, until now she’s been sucking too little instead. Apart from what I made her drink she hadn’t ever drunk anything on her own.

Going in hand with her body’s growth, have her instincts as a vampire also blossomed in that respect? For some reason or another, the act of sucking blood has the sense of being erotic, so it seems plausible that around the time of puberty that changes will occur. Well, either way, I guess it’s faster to ask her directly.

「Blood? Yes, I’m sucking it.」

She gives a light reply with a sense of “what of it?”. Ah, somehow I know without even asking. Vampire girl, it’s your debut as a genuine vampire. That’s what that light reply indicates. In short, compared to vampire girl’s human consciousness, her vampire consciousness has become the stronger one.

The soul is pulled by the body. Even with the same soul, if the body changes, and the soul lives for a long time in that body then the soul will be pulled along and also change gradually. Vampire girl used to be human. But, now she’s a vampire. She has her memories of when she was still a human, with such instincts remaining as well, but now she’s living as a vampire. Obviously, her soul will become more vampire than human.

For the vampire girl, her way of thinking as a vampire is already strong. Her resistance to sucking blood has gone away. Think of her sucking the blood of her reverse harem members as being on the level of an afternoon snack. She sure has fallen.

In this, maybe I am also part of the reason why. For the vampire girl to have awoken her vampire consciousness to be this natural, maybe compared to when she was a human there was too big a divergence. From when she was young she has been trained by me, and her soul has been continuously upgraded after all. So, it was just too big a change compared to when she was human and most of her old self is now gone. Hah hah hah.

Well, there’s no harm in it. Since she was actually born as a vampire, she has to live her whole life as a vampire after all. If she had her human consciousness around forever it would just get in the way after all. Compared to the time when I once worried about Mera, having total awareness as a vampire and acting on it is many times better I’d say. Basically, do it even more! So for the vampire girl, all is well.

Sensei on the other hand, seems to be meeting with someone. To sensei’s side is a body that Potimas is operating. It sure seems that that he’s up to something in the country called the Anareich Kingdom. While I don’t know the exact details involved, it’s clearly nothing decent. I gotta strengthen the monitoring. I make my clones secretly pursue after those two. Their destination, is the royal castle of all things. In a room in the royal castle, sensei and Potimas meet with two children.

「When sensei has given a self-introduction I think it’s common courtesy to give your name as well you kno~ow.」
「Excuse me. I am the fourth prince of this country, Shurein Zagan Anareich.」
「I am the eldest daughter of Duke Anabald, Karnatia Seri Anabald.」

Well. These two are ones I’d marked as possibly being reincarnators. Since I had prioritised sensei, I hadn’t looked too deeply into the royal castle, so it feels like things have developed in an unexpected direction in an unexpected place. As for why I’ve not looked too deeply into the royal castle, there’s one other reason.

「I see, I see. A prince and a duchess is i~it. How ni~ice. I’m so in moe~e.」
「It can’t be, Oka-chan!?」
「You mustn’t use -chan on sensei you kno~ow? But you’re ri~ight.」

Confirmed. Ahh, reincarnating as a prince and duchess huh. What’s with you being winners in life from the moment you’re born. What about me who was born as a spider monster in a labyrinth? Discrimination, much?

「So, would you mind telling me your names from your previous lives the~en?」
「Ah, I’m Yamada Shunsuke.」
「I’m Ooshima Kanata.」

Bwha!? Gak, gough! I unconsciously choked.

Whatcha playing at D!!??

Heeeyyy! Ooshima-kun? What’s with the sex change? Umm, well, since he was reborn I guess a change of gender isn’t that strange, but still. But, this, D totally did it on purpose right?

Eeehhh? Sensei, this isn’t the time to be going “I’m so in moe~e”. It’s a big problem. What’re we gonna do about this? Well, there’s nothing that can be done though.

Ah. What type of person was Ooshima-kun again? Hmm-mm. Ah, I remember. There was one time he confessed to me. Well, to be precise it was to Wakaba Hiiro though.

That memory, isn’t a particularly happy memory though. Ooshima-kun, came to confess with the assumption that he’d be completely rejected you know. After being shot down, he easily withdrew saying “I figured as much”. However, perhaps what was unfortunate for Ooshima-kun, was that from this point D kept an eye out on him.

Gender identity disorder, is not quite what it was, but Ooshima-kun wasn’t really interested in the opposite sex. Boys are wild beasts. In comparison, Ooshima-kun had little desire for such things. The full realisation of that, came from observing him after the confession. The way in which he looked at girls was different to the other boys. In addition, I suspect that Ooshima-kun himself was aware, of just how abnormal he was in comparison.

That is why, he confessed to Wakaba Hiiro with the assumption of being rejected. He wanted to establish the fact that he was rejected by a girl. Thus, he chose the one who’d most definitely reject him. If he established the fact that he’d confessed, he would then be able to conceal his abnormality of not being interested in girls. If he’s rejected then there’s no need to go dating either, it’s then convenient instead. It was a hopeless confession from the start, and unsurprisingly he was completed rejected. He created that situation.

It’s sure not that pleasant a feeling. In short, even though he wasn’t in love at all, it’s the case that I was used to be confessed to after all. Even if that wasn’t actually me, I still actually have the memory of that. Did both D and I have the same feelings I wonder? In that case, maybe Ooshima-kun had his gender swapped as a bit of harassment. I’m sure that D, is more than capable of doing that.

Hmm. That being said, it’s certainly the case that D takes a special perspective on things you know. Even if that’s treating someone as a plaything. I wouldn’t be surprised if she had trained that strange skill you know. “Commence strict monitoring of the target”, or something.

And then, there’s one more person I’m worried about. Yamada-kun’s little sister. In this country, originally there were three people who I had marked as possibly being reincarnators. Born at almost the same time, the three people who were called geniuses. Though it’s the case that two of them were actually reincarnators, the last person was excluded by sensei. She’d probably investigated by using the Ruler Authority I’d guess.

Though she’s not a reincarnator, she’s a genius rivalling a reincarnator. I’m worried. I guess I should investigate that little sister a bit.


 

Translation notes:

It’s a bit hard to describe Oka-chan’s original way of speaking. She often adds a cute emphasis at the end of sentences – so I used drawn out vowels and a ~ character for that. I’m sure most readers here know what “moe” means in this context but Oka-chan uses the verb form (moeru) instead, which I decided to translate as “I’m so in moe”.

The lines spoken by Oka-chan, Shunsuke and Kanata in this chapter are mostly originally from chapter S11, though in that chapter we don’t actually see them give their original names though it obviously happened around then.

Karnatia’s name has previously been written as “Carnatia” but since her nick-name is written as “Katia” and her viewpoint perspective chapters are K1 and K2 I changed the C to a K.

Arguable. She put souls into bodies that best matched them. Kanata wasn’t interested in women. D put him in a body where that wouldn’t be a problem for him anymore.

At the very least she’s fair. Her classmates died because of an attack aimed at her so her gives them all new lives to make up for it and even goes through the trouble of picking bodies that suit them.

She doesn’t help them much after that (with the exception of Kumoko for obvious reasons) but she was already pretty generous helping them out as much as she did so you can’t fault her for deciding she had fulfilled her obligation and chosen to let things take their natural course.

Sophia grew up into a verly lewd girl. Kumoko is a terrible parent, not that it’s surprising at this point what with how she made her first kids work like slaves.

She isn’t lude people! She treats drinking blood like an afternoon snack not sex.

Seriously you people read WAY too many vampire romance novels and manga.

Blame twighlight on this shit, back then blood sucking was cool and fore like hellsing, with this new wave it backame like this ?

I’m pretty sure the girl in Hellsing had ecstatic face when she sucked blood.

Shiro and Sophia have the same age. Its not like Shiro is her real parent. She only taught her skills and about the world.

Thanks for the chapter

I know how to return ogre-kun’s sanity, just tell him one of his best friend is reincarnated to be a girl. He will laugh so much until the wrath efect disappear… 🙂

So she took interest in the little sister? Hopefully that means after Yuugo brainwashes everyone she helped her a bit. Because considering how insane he had become and he was able to gain the lust skill I had already assumed the worst for her. But judging by Kumoko’s personality she’s not the type to just let people suffer in front of her eyes. She’s killing people in the war because the world will collapse otherwise. But otherwise she’s always shown a habit of saving people if they happen to be in danger in front of her. So if she decided… Read more »

I think Kumo is probably the one behind the pope that control Yuugo to get to rebel and corrupt other.

It can go according to some plan of her or just plain unintentional action of her. We can’t predict our kumoko-chan’s action after all. She’s not in the common sense!!

I wouldn’t be surprised if she was brainwashing him to believe that he’d been violating his little mind control harem, so despite what he thinks he never actually touched anyone.

Fender
Guest

In that chapter where Katia is mind-controlled, before she kills herself with a spell, doesn’t she make a specific mention on how her virginity was taken by Yugo? Afaik, we don’t really know anything about anyone else, but it seems that he really did have sex with at least one of his mind-controlled slaves.

IcyClaw
Guest

reread it twice but can’t see any mention of her being raped by Yuugo. only that she was lured into a trap and forcefully brainwashed. but from what i remember, Yuugo had this odd fascination of raping all the women around Shun in front of him which he never got to do.

metazoxan
Guest

Exactly. Despite him having the lust skill there is no mention of rape. Katia could have just not wanted to even think about it but it’s also possible that Kumoko really did prevent it or that Yugo was holding out on the rape fest until after he had Shun captured.

He seems like the type of guy who would want to specifically take their first times in front on him.

RoflCat

But she’s also aiming to kill off people with high skill points (possibly including reincarnators) and the little sister is definitely a prime target for such. Then again, she and D have what Ariel described as good personality that still makes up excuse to look like bad person. Case in point on this chapter: Katia. Had no interests in girls, have him turned to female so ‘she’ can have normal romance. (And from 3rd party view of Kumoko it might be mistaken as ‘cruel joke’) (Alternatively it’s the opposite and falls under Seigi no Mikata manga version: An absolutely selfish… Read more »

thx for the chapter o

Ranon

This is a little off-topic, but I understand now why the dragons fought Maou so long in the labyrinth. Because ruler powers wear on the soul, and she was constantly using her gluttony power to break their anti-magic barrier, they were assisting Maou-in-charge with rewriting Maou’s soul. The gluttony power wore her out so much that Maou-in-charge basically just filled in the gap. If Kumo-chan figures out how to alter the soul of others, she might strengthen Wrath’s soul with part of her own.

I don’t think that would be a good thing for Wrath.
I mean, look at what happen to Ariel.
She became a disappointing NEET maou…

I just remember about that girl who try to poison sophia. Maybe she thought something like “Evil commoner appear to suck the blood of many noble males and charm them with strange magic so I must kill her to save them all” then resulted in reverse harem gang up on her and got rekt.

Heeh Vampire girl is having so much fun is this new life~ well, it’s obvious she would make most of it, since she wasn’t exactly happy before. Kumo really has her hands full… XD

Plot twist: little sister is a reincarnator from another world, but different one from earth~
..or she’s potimas..

fatalystic

Hmm? Would that mean that Kanata was gay then? But considering his shock and denial at falling in love with his male best friend post-reincarnation, that would imply that even if he was gay before, he somehow never realised it.

Well, either that or Kumoko’s just reading too much into it.
