Rarely I see a fight between a man and a woman.

Aww, Alice is so jealous and dere-dere~

Considering how versatile the manga makes spider out to be, it's like playing rock / paper / scissors / shotgun and spider is the only shotgun.

You forget that, while they may use insect-like abilities, they're still humans.

Now that they're talking about speed I wonder if a tiger beetle wil show up, those things are faster than their own eyes can follow (granted having to stop to look around might be a weakness for the assasin)

Geji is actually still alive.

yup, figured goki-chan's "sure kill" move wasn't so "sure" after all

- discover yandere crazy girl wearing mini leather SM clothes killed another student and was proceeding to rape the body
- throw a fit that she's not the only one for her
 
... nope, that's beyond facepalm.

Gotta agree with the facts about the house centipedes. They are not dangerous to humans (they are very creepy though if u turn on the lights and one is on the wall next to you) and they are FAST. When they start running, good luck hitting them with a newspaper.

lol who put the yuri tag

I like how the majority of this chapter is Oki just going  D8

 Uhh, doesn't have to. Many unconscious and involuntary motor functions are done by the brainstem, sometimes called the 'second brain'. The cortex could be shut down, losing consciousness, but the brainstem could keep working. I would assume some hellish training and shounen plot would expand those motor functions to include responding to danger.

I dunno, I think I want to support the butt brain theory.  The manga is pretty silly about the bugs attributes.

gahhh. I wish this artist made more H manga. So far I've only seen one >.>

How is it supposed to transcend to a human though, does she have a brain in her butt?

According to this :http://pestcontrol.about.com/od/diyspidercontrol/a/Natural-Spider-Control-9-Notable-Spider-Predators.htm

Centipede would've had a good chance against Alice. Still waiting for spider wasp to show itself. :P Or another Spider contestant. Derp. Or maybe Sasori will finally kill Alice, who knows. (Scorpion being my zodiac sign, I'm secretly rootin' for her.) o/

Spoiler

 

I'd like to point out her weapon is basically a glorified half-brick in a sock.

And before any of you crack jokes, know that you can beat sourcerers with that (Having omnipotent wizards take pity on you is a valid combat strategy). Only way Rincewind would be more proud would be if centipede girl turned tail and ran away with that high speed of hers. 

 

Spoiler

 

Nevermind, she forgot the number one rule: The most important thing when running away isn't to, it's from. And she let gokiburi corner her.

Have pity on her for A'Tuin's sake... she wasn't raised in fine old Ankh-Morpork *pftt*

Ya rly. >.> Look it up. =.=

 

No I wasn't doubting that it's a legitimate fact.

 

I was just expressing my feelings towards those two panels.

Spoiler

 

really?

*sigh*

Q - Did I EVER expect anything more from this manga?

A - Yeah, back when Kumo was still around.

 

Q - Then why contnue now?

A - Apart from personal policies? This roller-coaster is fun in it's cheesiness...

 

 

BTW, I actually needed to ask myself those questions after this last chapter...

This has SPOILERS from the latest chapter in Japan (55), but I saw it while reading this month's Joker and it's too good to not share. Spoiler warning, NSFW warning, reminder-that-this-is-a-shonen-magazine warning.

lol the punchline of ch 34.

Is it just me, or does the "centipede" character have a close resemblance to Kuroki Tomoko from "It's not my fault that I'm not popular"????

Good catch. Murata (Arachnid's author) actually touched on that in some of his omakes: http://blog.livedoor.jp/pikaddb/archives/30880385.html

It helps when others are fairly specific species or closely related groups, while the MC gets to be all spiders.
