Kumo desu ga, Nani ka? Blood 32

Another day, another translation done. It’s been a while since I could last say that.

The author has released another 3 chapters already so I’m going to have a busy weekend it seems…

Blood 32 – Sulkiness

There’s been too much happening lately and it feels like my head is going to explode. When I woke up after going to bed in a huff and looked at things calmly, even I wonder what was up with me yesterday.

What Wrath was saying is correct. Even now I still can’t remember Felmina and so on, or rather, I don’t think I even have any awareness of her. Even I can realise that that is cruel. I myself understand one-sidedly treating someone like an enemy, having them take no notice of me, and then suffering the crushing shock of not even being recognised. Because I have experienced that myself. To Wakaba Hiiro, the existence of Negishi Akiko, was like that. After we have been reborn, being able to have our current relationship, gives a strange feeling though.

What I’ve done to Felmina, is bad I’m sure. I understand that. I understand it, but I don’t feel like simply apologising.

The heck? Felmina-”chan”, eh! I’d never have expected -chan. For THAT goshujin-sama, to AMIABLY, use -CHAN!

Sigh. Calm down, me. Recently, haven’t I become a bit strange when it comes to goshujin-sama? I’m aware of how things were in our previous existence, but it somehow feels like things have recently been developing in an entirely different direction. This is a bad trend I’m sure.

However, I can’t deny that I’ve thought of Felmina as being annoying anyway, and I don’t think that feeling will change either. If I actually apologise with things as they are now, it’d simply be for form’s sake and without an ounce of sincerity. If I’m going to apologise it should be after repenting honestly and my feelings having cooled down.

Besides all that, the one who annoys me the most right now, is that damn outsider who stuck his nose in and acts as if he owns the place and told me to apologise – Wrath. What’s with that high-and-mighty view of his own opinion! Bad things are bad!? I understand that without being told! That’s why recently I’ve been vomiting while agonising after all!

Spurred on by my seething irritation, I get up from the bed I was lying on. In the end I didn’t return to the dormitory yesterday, and was put up at the mansion overnight. When I open the curtains, I’m bathed in refreshing sunlight. It won’t turn me into ashes of course, but that light makes my heart melancholy.

I’m sure they were waiting until I was awake, since with good timing there is a knock on the door. When I reply, one of the maids of the mansion asks if I need assistance with getting ready. I politely decline, and head over to the dining table where breakfast is being prepared. I find that other people are already there.

One of them is goshujin-sama. Her expression is the same as ever, but that’s the face of someone thinking of nothing else but the breakfast she is about to eat. With that mood about her, I’m sure she won’t respond.

「Good morning.」
「Good morning.」

I exchange greetings with Wrath, the other person already here. As if the room temperature had literally decreased, a battle of dangerous glares unfolds between us. Neither of us intend to yield, that much is clear.

A while after we start glaring at each other, the food is brought in. I’m sure just entering into this space where Wrath and I are trying to stare each other down is painful, so I’m impressed that the serving maids didn’t allow anything to show on their faces. I separate my gaze from Wrath whose spirit had wavered, and take a seat next to goshujin-sama.

The entire meal time is silent. After we’ve finished eating, Wrath turns to look at me. That is clearly telling me that he wants to talk afterwards.

「Sophia, this is convenient timing so let’s go visit the Divine Word Religion.」

Ripping that apart, is a rare long sentence from goshujin-sama. In this atmosphere, to completely ignore that and talk about taking me somewhere, her nerves are the same as ever, but where did you say you’re taking me? If I didn’t mishear, she said the Divine Word Religion or something?

「Eh? What do you mean?」

It’s a bad habit of goshujin-sama, but she orders other people about without explanation, only giving the conclusion from her own reasoning. No matter what, I don’t understand why I should be visiting the Divine Word Religion. Saying that, where exactly is the Divine Word Religion? Doesn’t the Divine Word Religion have locations spread out around the world though?

Goshujin-sama is expressionless. Saying that, I don’t think it’s just my imagination that she appears to be astonished. Why doesn’t she ever realise that her explanations are lacking, I really wish she would stop that.

「Divine Word Religion?」

While I’m agonising over what to do, Wrath’s murmur brings me back to my senses. From the way he said it, it seems like he didn’t understand the meaning of the words “Divine Word Religion”. Ahh. I guess that would be the case for those living in the demon territory? I haven’t heard Wrath’s detailed personal history, but I’ve heard he was a goblin though. Then I guess it’s no surprise that he doesn’t know about the religions of the human territories, since they don’t exist in the demon territories either.

「The Divine Word Religion is a religious belief worshipped widely amongst the humans. Calling the System messages the Voice of God, they promote actively raising levels and skills in order to hear it more often, or some such nonsense.」

Privately though, I attach the comment that they’re the bastards who killed my parents. That’s not relevant right now though, so there’s no need for me to go out of my way to explain that to him, so I’ll conceal it instead. Or rather, you should just be glad to have a decent explanation. To my explanation, Wrath makes an “hmm” expression and then his face seems to tighten in sudden realisation.

「Shiro-san, that doctrine is…」

To Wrath’s words, goshujin-sama nods. Hey, what are you two doing ignoring me and having your own private understanding? How did you communicate between you with just that?

「Would it be possible for me to come as well?」

Goshujin-sama nods yet again. This is a nod to affirm that it’s okay to come, right? Is it just me who keenly feels that a troublesome situation, has suddenly gotten even worse?


 

Translation notes:

Regarding -chan being “amiable”, this is a bit hard to explain, but depending upon the situation it can give a sense of close (long term) friendship. Well, not using any honorific at all on someone’s given name can be considered even more intimate, depending on the situation.

Wow thanks for the read

I find it cute how she’s pissed off @ “chan” and not anything else

Metazoxan

I wonder if she’ll ever realize that she’s jealous or that she sees Shiro as her mother figure.

ROTBOW

Yea i’d love to see that.

Mesaphrom

A spider as a mother, a vampire servant as a father, millions of nightmarish spiders uncles and aunts, an oni as a brother and a hundred years old sacred beast as a annoying NEET little sister….. Yeah, totally normal everyday family here.

Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

The moment when you explain something to a person and it turns out they know more than you do..

She’s JEALOUS.

Shirro is her “mom”, her mom alone. No -shan to other girl!

It’s such a shame, being dragged around by a neglectful helicopter spider. I hope her first chance at diplomacy goes well.

ishira

Lol, inferiority complex, eh…
Also, next chapter is Spider vs Pope? is it the one in the Elf village?

Metazoxan
Guest

No if I’m remembering the time line correctly Shun and co are still just kids. Yuugo won’t go wild for a few years.

xacual
Guest

Yuugo already went crazy and tried to kill Shun the first time. It’s been about 12-13 of this world’s years since they reincarnated.

Metazoxan
Guest

Yeah but that only recently happened from this perspective and when I said Yuugo going wild I meant the whole taking over the kingdom and trying to attack the elves. THAT won’t happen for a few more years at least.

Sancturil

Indeed. Even more so considering that we’re still not at the Human-Demon war yet.

thank you

I just realized now.
Sophia didn’t realize that Shiraori isn’t Wakaba Hiiro.
In Blood 20 Sophia said that she can’t name Shiro other than Goshujin-sama (Master) but now she did it.

“Not only with the voice, but even in the mind.”

I think she won’t realize until the arc of the elf village….or after that (or never…xD)

Thanks for the chapter.

PS: Poor Sophia and her mother complex.

Thanks 4 the chapter!

Curse are specific. Sophia can’t call Shiro by anything except Goshujin-sama. But she can call Wakaba Hiiro by name. Will she notice that?

good luck with your weekend! I believe in you!

Stelvis

Sophia is the person that less understand shiro even though she travel with her for many years, the poor oni understand better than her xp
Ty for the chapter^^

Metazoxan
Guest

I don’t think it’s that he understands Shiro better it’s that he is more understanding to the state of the world and taking it seriously while Sophia is distracted by her identity crisis and worrying about people taking her “mommy” away from her.

Sancturil
Guest

Exactly. For example, while Sophia understand that what Shiro says is just the conlusion part of whatever she says in her mind, Wrath thinks she just takes a lot of time to start think what she will say and that she’s just no very talkative.

Sancturil
Guest

Add-on to my previous comment:

Basically, oni-kun believes that Shiro tries to choose the way to say what she has to say with the less words possible, when in truth, that’s not what she does most of the time.

KuRuuRuu
Guest

But actually Sophia is quite skilled since she is able to discern Shiro’s (expressionless) face when thinking about the breakfast ^^

IamMe
Guest
Well, Shiro did take her to a different dimension and explained a fair amount of how the skill system works. Wrath was actually calm enough to wait for her to give the answers to his questions and smart enough to back trace her through process to understand how she arrived at her responses. It took him awhile and a fair number of questions but he had unlimited time in that pocket dimension Shiro made. Sophia has had longer time with her but she doesn’t seem to be all that bright and never really sat down and talked to her for… Read more »

First sentence should be:
“Well, Shiro did take him to a different dimension and explained a fair amount of how the skill system works.”

Demon Reader

Sophia is not unintelligent. But – she’s Shiro to the extreme. Careless and Ignorant.

For her, being is food. being social is flock. World is farm. WHY do I have to pay attention to how those farm animal fight each other for whatsoever reason?

Human is merely worm, total impotent.
Elf is bee. A bit stingy and noisy. Demon is watching dog. Bark and bite, if chain is loosen. That’s all.

Mom is Boss. Why mom’s so care of the deteriorating farm, she doesn’t understand at all.

Thanks for the chapter.

Well she is the owner of “Envy” which i guess is affecting her personality somewhat. However its funny she doesnt even realize she is jealous.

One very strong context is that mothers often call girl friends of their children as -chan, especially if the relationship develop from childhood, which Felmina certainly qualify to be called a childhood acquaintance of Sophia. So yeah, to have mother-figure call such an insignificant character in a warm way, while calling her “puke girl” or something, is certainly annoying
