The first episode of the arachnid isekai TV anime So I’m a Spider, So What? spun its web all over Crunchyroll today with the premiere earlier in the day, but before the first episode broadcast yesterday, lead spider Aoi Yuuki mused about her struggles on Twitter of basically single-handly voicing the entire episode.

So I’m a Spider, So What? broadcast begins!!
I usually try not to say this stuff like this, but honestly!
[The first episode] was really difficult to work on (due to a lack of oxygen), so please watch it !!!!
It was thanks to the hard work of my oxygen!!!
What do you think you can make with all this oxygen? It really is!!!
The voice of a spider!!!!!!”
Amusingly, the voice actor claims that the voice of Kumoko was was thanks to the “hard work of [her] oxygen”. After watching the episode, I can attest to how hard the oxygen in Yuuki’s lungs worked to bring the spider to life!
So I’m a Spider, So What? is streaming on Crunchyroll every Friday!
