Adaptation announced for Okina Baba and Tsukasa Kiryu's light novel series about a girl being reincarnated as a spider
Head's up, true believers! So I'm a Spider, So What? - a popular light novel series written by Okina Baba and illustrated by Tsukasa Kiryu about a high school girl who finds herself inhabiting the body of a tiny spider in an extremely hostile alternate world - is being adapted into an anime.
The announcement was made via the paper 'obi' wrapper included with the Japanese release of Volume 05 of the manga adaptation of So I'm a Spider, So What?, which features artwork by Asahiro Kakashi. Currently, no further details about the anime adaptation (such as the cast, crew, and release date) have yet been revealed.
The So I'm a Spider, So What? light novel series (known as Kumo desuga, nanika? in the original Japanese) are published in Japan by Kadokawa Shoten under their Kadokawa Books imprint, and English language versions of both the light novels and the manga adaptation are published by Yen Press. Yen Press describes the story of So I'm a Spider, So What? as follows:
I used to be a normal high school girl but in the blink of an eye, I woke up in a place I've never seen before and-and I was reborn as a spider?! How could something that's nothing more than a tiny spider (that's me) possibly survive in literally the worst dungeon ever? Are there no rules? There should be some rules! Who the hell is responsible for this? SHOW YOUR FACE!
