So basically, right now, the school is like a kodoku experiment? >.>

True Rider bro is awesome. Can't get enough of those highlight kicks.

Isn't there a chance that Suzumebachi is actually Alice's father?

spiders beat all, as spiders are in all habitats, on all continents.

The army ant is just OP in an annoyingly unjustified way.

By the light. Two chapter update! Thank You!!!

A bug that like kabutomashi can't survive outside of japan? You serious? How about Asian wood rhinoceros beetle? They are from different habitat but still of the same subspecies..... The differences is that even females has horn, just smaller......

 

Pretty sure the intent is that there are a great number of inects in this world and one might just hard counter a rhino beetle though we'll never know since they're always in japan where they're strongest. In my opinion there isn't an insect that can stand up to a horde of ants, you can't even talk about ants in singularity because they are never alone and when they come down on something they all come down on it. Their only short coming is that they are bound by the earth, imagine if they fly, OH SHIT! WASPS!

If you mean her supposedly-dead biological father, it's revealed he's still alive hiring Grasshopper in the latest chapter (= he's dumb rich + rest is unkown)

 

Relationship between Kumo and Alice was more like 'family not related by blood' = he calls her his daughter hiring Kabutomushi

 

-> 2 different cases of hiring

...

Kumo x Alice means relationship / bond with their mental disorder ... but Alice seems already accept Kumo as her father (or at least adopt father)

 

I almost think they both have blood relationship ...

(since Kumo said that mental disorder is heredity)

So that old spider who taught her how to fight was actually her father?

A secret organisation would be secret to the public, but I think they'd want to garner a certain type of reputation in some circles.

Basically, sending "messages", that only certain people would get.

They have been louder than they have been silent. Most of them leaves destruction in their wake. Their weapons of choice are huge and not inconspicuous at all. Some of them have too specific of an assassination style. Water Strider, Centipede. The cricket duo uses muscles and punch/kick through walls. Assassins my arse. Most are simply hired muscles. Imomushi is the closest to becoming an assassin.

 

The common modern understanding of an 'assassin' ( a silent killer) is a bit devolved from what historical assassins actually did. Assassins were people who had reliable ways of killing their (often specific) targets with little or no support. Crusade era assassins (the originals) often made a point of making very public and showy kills in order to spread discord and fear, and further their reputations.

too op; pls nerf

The great blank white page strikes again, dammit!

Ah yeah the white page... that's actually in the volume itself. We were going to remove it but I forgot about deleting it for this chapter (whoops!)

I'll try to remember to get rid of it next time but no guarantees >_>

lol in the Watamote anime episode 1 the brother of the main character was reading volume 8 of Arachnid 

except that she doesnt even intend to befriend them if she can beat them.

also, strong opponents coming out so often, it's becoming repetitive.

 

she's just doing it magical girl style :D

 

Befriend

1.To make a friend
2.To beat the crap out of someone. Orignates from the anime seris "Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha", where the titular protaginst makes several friends by beating the crap out of them.

 

Spoiler

Onee chan is in a pinch again

I think a certain somebody needs to look up "friend" in the dictionary and read it reeeeeeally slowly, just to let it sink in.

Point. Maybe "silently" isn't the word I should've used. But there's also the fact that these agents/mercenaries don't usually fight each other, they rub out ordinary people. I think the battles we've seen so far are loud and crazy because they're fairly even matches between crazy people, and the destruction is more collateral damage than a killing method. Whereas Kamadouma wiped out a yakuza gang without attracting too much attention or breaking too much concrete.

Finally, the Organization is more about silently and efficiently assassinating their targets.

How come none of them uses guns so far?... >.> I'd think most of them would die pretty fast to that. >.> (xcept ofc, the speed-types, but you just need to restrict their movements first. =/

Pretty sure we've seen some guns. Imomushi has one, Alice used one to threaten the bully trio and kill Kumo, and that sniper fellow (Gin Yanma, or dragonfly) was ready to take her out when the latter occured.

 

You also forget that Japan has an anti-weapons law, and even if the Organization is powerful enough to get around it (which they are), a lot of their agents are in high school and can't use them very freely.

 

Finally, the Organization is more about silently and efficiently assassinating their targets. Why use a gun and risk more attention/clean-up when you can snatch people from the ceiling, paralyze them with poison, or whack them with a sock full of junk?
