“(hachi ga gokiburi wo) dorei joutai ni shite suana made tsure’aruku no de aru”, translated as “The wasp can even get the cockroach to lead them to the cockroach nests.”
As it’s ‘tsure’ rather than ‘tsurase’, the one being led is the cockroach rather than the wasp. This (and the picture) is consistent with the Emerald Cockroach Wasp wikipedia entry:
‘The wasp, which is too small to carry the roach, then leads the victim to the wasp’s burrow, by pulling one of the roach’s antennae in a manner similar to a leash.’
(It is also unknown to me whether a cockroach has something that could be called a burrow/suana, whereas a digger wasp definitely does.)
I hope this observation is of help/use. *bows*
–Though a less significant point, it may also be noteworthy that the top right panel of the following page is referring to ‘an insect/insects’ rather than ‘people’ (‘konchuu ga’). Given that people (humans) can gain knowledge of surgical procedures through study and anatomy research et cetera, the question is how insects (without those fields of science) acquired them, rather than how humans acquired them. This question is consistent with the puzzling-to-some question of how the emerald cockroach wasp gained the precise ganglion-targeting ability discussed slightly earlier.
Being in a condition like a slave,
- they can even bring them all the way to their nests.
The evolution of the digger wasp is shrouded in mystery.
Insects cannot be established in any way without knowledge of what their taxonomy or anatomy are,
- so did people end up acquiring the technical expertise of sophisticated surgical procedures? (Technically, people should be replaced with “they”, but it wouldn’t sound right so I changed it)
Blame the proofreader for the first one, and I was a bit confused with the second point when they talked about surgical procedures and anatomy research, since I figured that would’ve been a human thing.
The JP didn’t specifically say “people” (as you see above, I wrote in a note that it should’ve just stuck as “they”), so it’s my mistake for force interpreting it as such. I didn’t really look into the specifics of the wasp, so yeah.
Thanks for the chapter! It`s been so looooong await. Big thanks for your team.
Say `Hi!` to Sayori from russian fan`s of Arachnid. Your releases are still best (at least for me).
From Russia, with gratitude.
(Sorry for my english)
С Новым годом! Happy Cristmas!
