Q&A corner 9

Q, Sensei is mysterious
A, All of Sensei’s action and speech have meaning to it. As the story advance it’s gradually revealed, so I will conceal the details here.

Q, Is it the difference of the title that “Evasion” didn’t rose a lot unlike “Thought Acceleration” and “Foresight”?
A, Difference of the title and because “Thought Acceleration” and “Foresight” are used constantly. Although the skill proficiency of “Evasion” only rises when there’s an enemy, because the other two always gain skill proficiency, it’s easy to raise their level.

Q, If all of the creatures in this area have Flame Nullity, I’m interested in the use of fireball and breath.
There’s no point using it, right……?
A, Yes. That’s right. So, please think that the fireball is for the monsters that strayed off from the lower layer. Because the monsters in the middle layer are weaker compared with the monsters in the lower layer, intercepting the monsters strayed off from the lower layer with fireball from within the magma becomes their basic strategy. If it’s another monster from the middle layer, it concludes by hitting each other.

Q, Although I think that digging a hole and make a poison pitfall is the basic strategy, why she never did that?
A, In the Elro Great Labyrinth, hard bedrock is the main ground. And, her legs that have sharp claws made her to be bad in digging holes. So, digging is impossible.

Q, Come to think of it, can the snail insect made into a taste weapon?
A, What dreadful thinking! If you are resolved to die, then might be possible.

Q, Prince…
A, I can deny that he’s a little complacent of peace. However, there’s a certain reason for the ways of the world…

Q, Zoa Ere
A, Although everyone imagined the origin of the name, this is completely a coined word! Those who think about it seriously, sorry!

Q, Come to think of it, “Detection” rose when its used but it never rose when the skill proficiency up by level up is because of the required skill proficiency “Detection” is a lot.
Is the skill proficiency gained when “Detection” is activated simply enormous?
A, The skill proficiency rises at a stretch when “Detection” is activated. Because a lot of skill proficiency is needed for the next level, the skill proficiency increase by the level up is not enough to raise the skill level. I think that you understand how abnormal is the increase when the skill is activated.

Q, The “Ne” at the end of the word, isn’t it used heavily?
Isn’t it bad to make her way of speaking that makes the reader glance repeatedly because it’s a monologue?
Isn’t it annoying if you keep using the same end of a word?
A, Kumoko’s tone is done on purpose. End of word like 「Ne」 and 「Nee」, etc, are made numerously on purpose. In addition, a lot of words and expressions, etc, are made numerously on purpose. Although it might be unacceptable according to the person, because it’s Kumoko’s individuality, I don’t intend to change it in the future. Please acknowledge it.

Q, The resistance endowment of “Universal Thread”….
A, Such carelessness is Kumoko’s quality.

Q, The monsters’ name looks alike and there are a lot of katakana, so it’s hard to memorize it.
Though it might not be necessary to memorize it.
A, Yes. The monsters’ name are mostly coined words, so it’s hard to memorize it. That’s why, I try to make it easy to understand as much as possible by using nicknames like eel or snake.

Q, The description of the spider’s appearance is a little…
A, The evolution this time has only few descriptions, but I want to let you readers to imagine the detailed descriptions as you like. Other characters are not written in details about their appearance for the same reason.

    Hah! I also growled internally for Kumoko’s complete disregard of “Resistance Endowment.”

    She can make a nest in that firey pit now, that damn ditz. How can she miss that.
