she picked pride because it has the N% in it, and it says it increases EXP gain. no one would say no to "gain exp faster"

Doesn't work with Detection. I can't remember exactly why, but it deals unblockable damage of a type I can't remember.

 

And she HAS detection off. Otherwise her brain would have melted the very day she aqquired it.

I meant that detection is unification of separate detections, but still it seems some are detailed. I wondered if they could be turn off.

For now, I see detection as googles with several features and if you turn all of them on, you can not see anything and you will just hurt your eyes.

...or she would get max pain resistance and nullify pain from skill.

I don't get this situation with detection.

If it is unified other detection skills, she should be able to do "... detection off".

She could also simple level up detection and either it would evolve in useable feature like it was with appraise or she would get max pain resistance and nullify pain from skill.

That picking up "pride" seems for me unlogical and deus ex machina as the rest of her decisions were made in logical and reasonable way.

Compared to detection, Appraisal is a gentleman and offers good rewards at a fair price. Detection is more like a suicide attack, except it doesn't do any good yet. 

 

In both cases it helps show why Kumo-chan is a great protagonist: instead of being reborn with a cheat skill, she was born at the bottom of the food chain and is slowly working her way up with determination, creativity and optimism. Even if she makes some questionable actions along the way like picking a skill she knows is evil. 

A skill can't be evil. Only it's user can. Like Decapitation thread. It is not evil just by being capable for doing it.Hence Hell's skills are not inherently evil.

Why can't Detection-san be like his cool cousin Apraisal-sama?

I believe you could say that Detection is, if not better, as OP as appraisal. Also, Appraisal didn´t start as such a good skill (at the first levels you don´t get much info from it), and it's shown in chapter 1.2 that Appraisal has the same problem as Detection, if the individual appraises too much, the amount of information recived will cause a strong headache (though at least in this case, the information from Appraisal can be distinguished). As a little extra info.. (I'll put it in a spoiler since this is from the WN, but it's nothing relevant to the history, just a fact)

Spoiler

So her makeover is:
- earring-like thing
- limb pattern that makes her looks like she's using gloves and stockings
Mark my word: next evolution will make her looks like she has eyelashes and lipstick. Also the stockings becomes a net stockings. (Note, this is just a prediction, not a spoiler)

The thing is though, not every spoiler is in spoiler tags. Take the post below yours for example.

Don't worry, I know the power of spoiling things, so I always use spoiler and only throws out spoiler if someone ask/want to discuss about it.

First off thank you for the translation i really love your work.

But why was nai wa translated as no way it is barbaric!!

on page 8? the original there was 否(ina) I leave nai wa as nai wa

Kumoko has absolute territory!  Dangerously sexy, this evolution.  Also Pikachu ears.  ;)

Bless you for the work of translating all the skills and points. I have to admit, after a while my eyes just skimmed over some of them, author put in way too much detail. Good luck on future level ups/evolutions!

Now that she acquired Pride, her skill sets is only going to get even more bloated.

 

To the translators of future chapters: You have my sympathy.

14-4 came out January 31

15-1 came out  February 14

Mahou Shoujo Kumo-chan is the cutest!

 At the end of the day all women want to be mahou.

tfw kumoko has more expressions than most of another mc even though she's only a spider.

 

Her body language, too.

Is clicking the "SPOILER" button like this every opportunity you get necessary

we get it, you don't want to be spoiled

On another note, that's a cute make over, Kumoko! Especially that lust kumoko. Truly the rarest of kumoko.

 

I already know what happens in the novel.  My issue is that posting spoilers for no reason at all is obnoxious.  Like with some people you can tell that they're just looking for a reason to talk about what happens later in the story.  There's always that one guy who does that.

 

And if you're going to point out that I posted an unmarked spoiler, I didn't spoiler it because I made a point not to talk about anything specific (which others do) and my reason for doing so is for those who might be wondering if how the story goes changes with the advent of this new power-up.  I'd like people to keep reading this instead of dropping it without seeing what happens. The gist of what I'm saying is "no it doesn't turn to dogshit, please stay."

Those Hell spells. When you get an legendary-rare item but can't use it...

The thing is though, not every spoiler is in spoiler tags. Take the post below yours for example.

But that's just the usual here. The best approach to avoid spoilers is to avoid the comments section completely. Specially novel adaptations, most fans are readers of the novel after all.

And so it begins....

 

The slippery slope to OP-dom.

Is spoiling random things like this every opportunity you get necessary
 
we get it, you read the novel

Oh boy, Pride is here.

 

If you're wondering about it, yes, it's an overpowered ability, but no, it doesn't make her fights any less of a dangerous conflict.  She still struggles a lot.  Don't worry about any future battles turning into curbstomps like in other reincarnation isekai.

omaigawd she has little stockings.
