Typically lazy machine-translation of the Japanese title:

拾う者、拾われる者 = Hiroumono, Hirowarerumono. It's NEVER read as "sha" when it appears on its own after a verb or adjective, almost always together with another Kanji as per standard reading rules.

Other than that, the cover picture looks interesting since it's adventurer Ainz and disguised Demiurgos on the same page.

Makes you wonder. What parents would name their own son Climb. or Brain?!

What childhood life would such a person have to endure.
Getting ridiculed and kicked out of job interviews.
How could they ever go up to someone they liked to introduce themselves. Embarassed

On the plus side. I guess its easier to remember and spell than Ainz Ooal Gown...

Looks much better than the garbage they gave us in the last arc.

??? I don’t recall any garbage from the last arc. It was pretty entertaining. Besides, garbage is too unfair/strong (not accurate also) a word to describe something you don’t particularly enjoy.
