Kumo desu ga, Nani ka? 261

The morning after the night before…

Incidentally, volume 3 of the Light Novels and volume 1 of the manga came out today (9th July).

261 – Liquor is the best medicine

When I woke up I was on a bed in the mansion. How strange. Yesterday I’m sure I shut myself in another dimension with some wine and snacks to munch. Did I get drunk without noticing and then came back here and slept, perhaps?

It’s a problem that I’ve forgotten everything while drunk, but never mind. I can rapidly break down alcohol if I want to, but if I did that there’d be no point in drinking it. You can’t call wine without alcohol a wine! Well, if necessary I can download the memories from my clones that are all over the place, no problem. I’m not going to download the memories for now though. I mean, seriously, wouldn’t you be a bit scared to see how you had behaved after getting heavily drunk?

I shake my head in denial, and check if there’s any problems with my physical condition. I wouldn’t have a hangover from drinking, so this is just a precaution against some unlikely event okay. Yep, I’m in perfect condition again today. I also feel that my skin has gotten a healthy glow to it for some reason. Yeah, alcohol is good for the health indeed.

I leave the room in order to get breakfast, heading to the dining hall. Vampire girl and oni-kun are already seated there.

「Good morning.」
「M, morning.」

A polite greeting from oni-kun, and a greeting from vampire girl with her face going somewhat stiff. She showed this kind of behaviour once or twice on our journey as well, so I guess vampire girl isn’t a morning person after all?

「Mm.」

I guess it’s better than saying nothing, so I give a short reply. I sit next to vampire girl. For some reason, vampire girl sits bolt upright.

「Umm.」

Hm?

「For what occurred yesterday, I think it would be better to stop.」

Oni-kun said that in a reproachful tone of voice. Hmm? Yesterday? I did something yesterday?

I glance towards vampire girl. Well, I say that, but since I keep my eyes closed there’s no actual eye contact. Vampire girl is staring at oni-kun as if seeing something unbelieveable. Eh? What’s this? What happened yesterday?

「Sophia-san objected to it as well, and I think that it’s wrong to force someone who is objecting. Even though you were drunk on alcohol, I still think that there are things that are acceptable and things that are not.」

Alcohol. Drunk.

Emergency request to all clones within the mansion! Download the memory from yesterday when the main body was drunk! The clones stealthily hidden around the mansion transmit the memories to the main body. I look at the memories I received one by one, filling in the relevant omissions.

Bwah!? What the heck is this!?

Oi! Oi, me from yesterday! What’re you doing!? This isn’t some mere aggressive drunk! I’ve gotten a glimpse of something far more terrifying!

Seriously. Nai wa. Totally nai wa. Objectively viewing myself while drunk, I’m nai wa.

I pounced on vampire girl, and zapped oni-kun with my Static Evil Eye when he tried to stop me. I did whatever I liked. Or rather, if I try my best I’ll be able to talk that fluently! Ah, yes. This isn’t the time to escape from reality. What should I do?

I turn towards vampire girl. She delicately tries to avoid me while staying seated. Ahh, right.

「I’m sorry.」

Indeed.

Umm, vampire girl. Why is your face trembling in disbelief now? If I’ve done something wrong I will at least apologise you know? I shall refrain from alcohol for a while. If I’m going to drink, I’ll do it with D around. Um, no, that’d also be pretty scary somehow. For the time being I shall go teetotal. Ugh, it’s painful but there’s no other way.

I return my gaze to oni-kun, and he makes a relieved expression for himself. It’s possible that oni-kun was prepared to die when he admonished me. Well, I can hardly blame him for thinking that perhaps I wouldn’t listen to him after seeing THAT from yesterday. Alcohol sure has a huge pitfall huh. Scary.

「Goshujin-sama. Are you really the real goshujin-sama?」

Vampire girl has started saying something rather strange. I wanna retort by asking what she’d do if I wasn’t the real one.

「Do you have a fever or something? Did you eat something strange? Have you gotten a screw loose?」

Oi, hey. Just how on earth do you see me? It’s depressing so I silence her with a chop to the head.

「Oww!? Isn’t that too mean!? I’m worried about you but isn’t that too mean!?」
「No, just now, the mean one was you Sophia-san, I’d say」

To vampire girl’s protest, oni-kun calmly retorts. Hmm, hmm. Things have become so noisy and irrational with just an apology. Unlike a certain Evil God somewhere, I can hold a proper conversation. I’m not D! Not D!

「But, it’s that goshujin-sama? That goshujin-sama who is like an atrocity incarnate? That goshujin-sama who loves mass-murder and eating people’s flesh such that it makes me want to ask if you were born in hell?」

Vampire girl’s image of me seems to be like that of a Great Demon King. Eh? Really that much? Do I really have such a bad image?

Ahh, uhh. Thinking back on things, I was the trigger that lead to the destruction of vampire girl’s hometown that also raged violently in the war, and now that you mention it I did make that elf-meat stir-fry afterwards didn’t I. Or rather, aside from all that, from the expressions that vampire girl is using I guess that yesterday wasn’t my first offense? If so then it would be consistent. All too consistent. Oh no! Then this means that in vampire girl’s mind I’m like a monster that devours people’s flesh night after night!? It’s not exactly wrong so I can’t say anything!

「Hey, isn’t that saying a bit too much?」
「It’s all true though.」
「Eh?」

Oni-kun looks towards me in shock. Stop! Don’t look at me like that! I unintentionally turn my face away to avoid his gaze.


D「I received a signal that a certain spider was dissing me so I’m off to punish it.」
Meido「Did you think I would let you go? Get on with your work please.」


 

Translation notes:

The word “sake” can be used to refer to any alcoholic drink rather than just Japanese rice wine. So when you see “wine” above, it doesn’t literally mean grape wine. Somewhat related, it is said that Japanese sake brewers often have a healthy glow to their skin.

“I’m not D! Not D!” – probably a reference to the famous Gundam line “It’s not a Zaku, not a Zaku!”

Thanks for the chapter! I can only see the next scene:
Shiro: You have it wrong. The only person I’ll ever eat is you.
Sophia: maximum blush.

lesstea

Sophia tends to act queen-ly and be the dominating one amongst her peers, so being at the bottom sometimes might not be that bad for her.
I ship ShiraorixSophia ?

Aureliano Alatriste

Bah, no more Shiraori eating people? Boo~ring. I’m kinda surprised that she actually seems kinda unsettled by that.
I mean, okay, they’ll probably still eat elves, since they’re not real people, obviously.

Thanks for your hard work!

Well it’s fine if she eats dead people.

>Somewhat related, it is said that Japanese sake brewers often have a healthy glow to their skin.

Also somewhat related…maybe…the ‘glow’ effect might refers to afterglow from having sex…and in comedy setting, is usually shown after ‘rape’ (with the ‘victim’ in the background in despair)

Woah, comedy and rape in the same sentence. Never seen that.

I remember there’s something like that in gintama

>>Seriously. Nai wa. Totally nai wa. Objectively viewing myself while drunk, I’m nai wa.

…so you didn’t even realize what have you done all this time, Shiro-chan…
…nai wa

I think you should start italicizing the mental monologues of Shiro-san in case the above happens again. It can be harder for some readers to understand when the monologue ends and narration starts when the switch happens during the same paragraph.

Jackal

Or you could put single quotes around them. Your call.

That footnote. You shall not escape, D. ?

That last part lmao~~

Well, she totally eat her favorite piece of meat. And that totally sounded wrong.

Thanks for the hard work! (Well you know what I mean) :3 I really liked this chapter XD poor Sophia she’s traumatized after all those things she saw Shiro doing (also the ones she did to her) other thing that was funny is that Shiro now is feeling awkward and bad about what she did to her daughter and even Wrath was prepared to die!

Reaper Phoenix

Thanks 4 the chapter!

Wrath dare walk the path neither demon lord or dragon god dare to walk.

Mesaphrom

What about delincuent brother? Since he totally treatened her with food withdrawal.

an
Guest

thanks for the chapter!
so shiro didnt go the sophia path where she goes “since u banned me from my fav drink and food how about you offer yourself instead” (lol)
shiro! shiro! drink with kuro! they both like alcohol and shiro was tame enough and happy when she drank with him and gyuri gets to complain his troubles it’s a win win situation?
D punishes shiro like shiro punishes sophia.. pretty sure vampire girl constantly disses D but when shiro does it, Divine Punishment!

Sancturil
Guest

I don’t think Sophia knows of D’s existence.

an
Guest

I should have put wakaba hiiro,eh. even if she doesnt know about D, the wakaba hiiro that she and the class people knows of in their past life points to D herself, not kumo, so..

KuRuuRuu

Thanks for the chapter!!!
You can’t take alcohol from Shiro!
Nai wa~

In a sense, she WAS reincarnated in “hell”

Saki

Wait, so all this time she has been travelling and living with Sophia and the Demon King she never once, ever, found out her drunk behavior? Until now?
I thought she knew and just let it be, lol.

Ty for the chapter^^

“Seriously. Nai wa. Totally nai wa. Objectively viewing myself while drunk, I’m nai wa.”
<–i think this is the highest concentration of Nai wa so far 😀

"Oh no! Then this means that in vampire girl’s mind I’m like a monster that devours people’s flesh night after night!? It’s not exactly wrong so I can’t say anything!"
-oh Shiro 😀

Will it ever be told what exactly did Shiro to Sophia or the author will leave it to our imagination? 🙂

Thanks for the chapter!

What is nai wa?

Sancturil
Guest

Is this your first time reading this series or what? Did you really read this series from the beginning? If you don’t know what Nai Wa is, then I’m doubting your integrity as a fan of “Kumo desu ga, Nani ka?”

only the worst puns
Guest

that one never said it was a fan of “kumo desu ga, Nani ka?”

Sancturil
Guest

But then. why is he reading a chapter this far into the series? Just having read the series till here would guarantee him knowing what Nai Wa means.

SubZole
Guest

S-Such blasphemy… not knowing about the sacred “Nai wa” -.-

Back then when Shiro was still only a spider monster she used to say “Nai wa” a lot when something bad happened. It was a habit of her in it became something like her catchphrase.

Nai wa = No way
