The official website and Twitter account for the television anime of author Okina Baba and illustrator Tsukasa Kiryu’s So I’m a Spider, So What? (Kumo desu ga, Nani ka?) novels opened and unveiled a new visual for the anime on Friday. The anime will premiere this year, and will star Aoi Yūki.
After the original announcement 2 years ago, it was announced on a wrapper around the 12th light novel volume of So I’m a Spider, So What?, which released in Japan on January 10. The novel will now be getting a TV anime adaptation on Japanese TV screens in 2020. The announcement was given at the Kadokawa booth during Anime Expo.
The light novel series, written by Okina Baba, previously got a trailer confirming that the main character will be voiced by Aoi Yuuki (Tanya Degurechaff in Saga of Tanya the Evil, Madoka Kaname in Puella Magi Madoka Magica). I (yes, the main character’s name is the pronoun) is a high school girl that gets isekai’d into a spider and has to survive her way to becoming the most powerful of spiders. (Crunchyroll)
Yen Press publishes both the light novel and the manga adaptation, drawn by Asahiro Kakashi, in English and describes the series as:
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!
