Now this I'm happy to see. It can feel a bit insular what with there only being one character (in the beginning) but that is an interesting quality in itself and I just couldn't help but find it refreshing to see a badass female character (albeit monster female) who isn't defined by a romance nor a CGDCT group (and I love her quirkiness).

And I do like how elaborate and varied the fights can be without getting too bogged down in the details.

Amazing news, this is truly one of the few stories that deserve an adaptation, not like the bombardment of awful isekai/Tensei stories we're getting for the last few seasons.

Is going to be an interesting ride and one that I believe it wont be easy to adapt, I hope this gets a good studio like White Fox to keep the especial elements of the story.

Now the only thing that matters in my mind is who will voice our Kumoko. Technically Kumoko's been voiced already in a commercial for the LN, but I didn't know who voiced that and afaik there's still no drama cd. But really, since Kumoko will be the only character to appear for a good while this is a really crucial decision. Personally, I read Kumoko's line with the voice of Noto Mamiko in my mind when I read the WN.

Could finally say it. I always planned to say this if there was an anime adaptation since I seriously doubted they would do such a thing...

Very happy.

Now, the next question is, what will they adapt? It's something I've been thinking about a fair bit. The biggest problem are all the side-stories. Will they do it like the manga and just concentrate on the MC?

My guess would be this: either they do 1 cour and just focus on the MC and do up to the 3rd or 4th LN. Or they do 2 cour and all the side-stories and go up to the 5th LN.

My guess is Aoi Yuuki.

They could use Sora Amamiya for Kumoko voice. Just kidding.

now is to hope that no old controversy is revealed and the anime is canceled.

I hope it all right. This series is great.

Kumoko was voiced by Uesaka Sumire in the commercial.

Here it is for anyone wondering:

To be honest, the safe way to adapt this is only focusing on the MC and leave the side stories out of the equation. Now, if the studio decide to go, let's say, 2 cour then they can use some of the side stories while keeping the MC as the main focus of the adaptation.

What is important now is the studio.

That's basically what I meant.

...though it's probably the publisher who will decide 1 cour vs 2 cour.

On a side note, if they do simply focus on the MC (ie do something more like the manga than the LNs) then the budget for the seiyuu would be cheap - there'd only be a few named parts and 90% of the lines would be by the MC.

For now there is nothing indicating what studio is doing the job but these days, studios that work with isekai or tensei stories and have done a great job are White Fox and what else? can't remember.

I wonder if we're reaching this beauty.

Not bad, will be too niche for anime audience though.

I have the same problem with this one that I did with RE: Monster, in that the self narrating and rpg style growth is fun to a point, but then the cast starts increasing and power levels start increasing and it's no longer just a character in a cave learning neat things about his/her new rpg world.

Yes, I spoiled myself. Wasn't a fan of the twist. =\

I'm personally eager and anxious to see how the animation goes.
This was one of few isekai series that I figured would be difficult to adapt into an anime do to the constraints that anime normally have.

They'll probably do what the manga did and skip over the side-stories, because including those would lead to too many questions, and most anime adaptations seem to like ending on some illusion of closure, without promising a continuation until they see how sells went. (especially on the first season of a show)
Then again, they might actually be planning to adapt pretty far, so who knows?
