IFailNoNutNovember I didn't expect you to actually keep reading it after a couple of chapters. I mean i know the front page shows a girl and you're trying for new monster girl things, but i thought the lack of fanservice would make you drop it. Anyways what do you think about the manga so far? Also beware the CGI anime that is going to come next year...
I was bored and IDK why, a lotta monster girls tend to be in the isekai stuff so I kept running into either isekai or fantasy. MonMusume is the non isekai or fantasy and prolly rare of its kind, set in the real world LOL
Makes me appreciate MonMusume for being awesome
then I found dis thru wut was recommended after Re:Monster, you know those Users who read this manga also read these
I kept clicking and going thru a shit ton of manga hoping for monster gurls or elves
AS for why I kept reading, I don't know dood
I just find da gurl hilarious, plot is pretty straightforward or boring and yeah, no ecchi
dat could change though, I remember she was thinking of evolving into dis
The July issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine revealed on Tuesday that author Okina Baba and illustrator Tsukasa Kiryu's So I'm a Spider, So What? (Kumo desuga, nanika?) novels are inspiring a spinoff comedy manga that will debut in Kadokawa's Young Ace Up website "soon." Gratin Tori will draw the manga. The manga's story begins when the protagonist uses the skill "Parallel Consciousness" to split their consciousness into four, but they somehow gain physical form — as not just one spider, but four spiders.
The novels take place in a world where the hero and the demon king are locked in a continuous dispute. Their grand magic crosses into another world, and ends up exploding in a classroom, killing the students inside. The students are then reincarnated into a fantasy world. The protagonist, who has the lowest position in the class, is reincarnated as a one-meter-long monster spider. But she accepts this fate and adapts to her new life and situation quickly. The story follows the protagonist as she survives in this new world.
Baba launched the novel series on the "Shōsetsuka ni Narō" website in May 2015. Kadokawa published the novels' 10th volume in print on January 10. The novels ranked #2 on the 2018 edition of Takarajimasha's Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! (This Light Novel Is Amazing!) guidebook, and ranked #3 on the 2017 list.
The novels are inspiring a television anime adaptation starring Aoi Yūki.
Asahiro Kakashi's manga adaptation runs on Kadokawa's free manga website Young Ace Up, and Kadokawa published the sixth compiled book volume on January 10. The manga and novels have a combined 1.2 million copies in print.
Yen Press is releasing the novels and the manga in English.
How did you feel when you were told that your light novel would be receiving an anime adaptation?
OKINA BABA: Naturally I was elated, but more so I was worried.
When you began your otherworld story, what led you to choose a "spider" for a main character?
OKINA BABA: I get asked this question a lot, but actually there's no major reason. It just so happened that a spider appeared in my dreams the day I started writing the story.
Are there any specific details or characteristics of your story that you wanted to keep for the anime adaptation?
OKINA BABA: I told them that they didn't need to follow the same structure of the novel. If anything, I asked that they don't follow it. Anime has its own charm, and I wanted them to build a structure that brought that forward.
Now that there will be voices behind your characters, did you have an idea of what you wanted the characters to sound like before you heard the actors?
OKINA BABA: I didn't have that many requests for voices. All the voice actors are so good, it's not my place to speak out. (Laughs)
What do you feel are the main character's strong points and weaknesses? OKINA BABA: The main character's strength is her grit and mental strength. Her weak point is her lack of cooperativeness. She doesn't even realize she can ask for help, instead trying to do everything herself.
Tsukasa Kiryu: Original Novel Illustrator of So I'm a Spider, So What?
What would you do if you were in the world of So I'm a Spider, So What?
TSUKASA KIRYU: I want to walk around the world. I want to see how people live or what the food culture is like in each area. I particularly want to learn about flora and fauna, where everything grows and how it's distributed.
What considerations did you have to make when designing a spider as a main character? Coolness vs cuteness vs creepiness?
TSUKASA KIRYU: Initially, we started exploring a realistic & inexpressive cuteness style, but midway we changed directions towards adorable designs so that it would be more acceptable for people who hate spiders. It was a very difficult journey, and by the end of it, I produced close to a hundred different patterns. People who don't like spiders hate the legs the most, and I remember working with my editor on various solutions, such as not showing the hair, or simplifying the joints.
On average, how long does it take for you to complete an entire illustration cover?
TSUKASA KIRYU: It takes me about one to three weeks. If I have a good rhythm, I can complete the rough sketch in one day, inking in one to three days, and coloring in about three days. I also work on ideas in between other tasks.
How do you and Okina Baba work together to design the characters, monsters, and the setting?
TSUKASA KIRYU: I received specifications from my contact. While I'm working, I don't directly talk with Okina Baba. However, the Monster Hunter figure I previously received from Okina Baba has been very useful when thinking about composition.
What references do you use when you're drawing the characters and the setting? Considering it's based in a fantasy world, how do you balance the tone of the intimidating monsters with the human character designs?
TSUKASA KIRYU: I'm better at drawing based on personality or characteristics rather than appearance descriptions, so for characters I often start drawing based on my impression of them from reading the text. If I'm at a loss for expressions, I think back to a character or actor from a movie I previously saw whom I feel has similar stances or personality and reference that. With monsters, I feel their relatability depends on whether or not you can see their pupils. I feel that if the animal doesn't have pupils or you can't look it in the eye, there's a fear where you don't know if it'll attack or what it's thinking.
Old Man Dream: Fun fact about The Rescuers: It has a dirty little secret you can find in older releases of the movie. (NSFW, as a heads up)

Taka: Didn't see anything until I read the description and comments. It goes by really fast. Edit: Someone really sneak in a picture. Edit 2: Tried pausing to find it. It's harder to track compared to REZERO's IF pictures

Old Man Dream: Set the playback speed on the video to 0.25x. Should make it easier to get a good pause on one of the two naughty bits. Both appear around 0:19ish in the video.
