Crunchyroll couldn’t let us go without allowing us to talk with the creators of the light novel and upcoming anime “So I’m a Spider, So What”. The story of a normal high school girl who in the blink of an eye,woke up reborn as a spider, in a fantasy dungeon. The clever team of Okina Baba and Tsukasa Kiryu took the time to answer some of our questions about the inspiration for this rather creative take on the isekai story.
What did you think when you were approached to draw an illustration in a story where the lead was a spider?
What is your opinion that has made this light novel series successful? Is it its uniqueness in a market of isekai novels?
Do you have a mangaka that inspires you to imagine the characters/creatures you create?
We see many different types of protagonists in anime, not only humans, but centaurs, and vampires but a spider is new! The only spider we can think of in literature is Charlotte in E.B. Whites Charlotte's Web. What was the inspiration for this novel and its eight-legged lead?
Did the novel’s plot reveal itself to you all at once or did you have to slowly work it out?
How does it feel to have your first manga title being adapted into an anime?
We really want to thank Crunchyroll for lining up such great guests for us to speak to before Virtual Crunchyroll Expo kicks off on September 4th. We love hearing what the creators and industry leaders are thinking of their industry and the worlds they themselves create.
