everything is so rock paper scissor it's like you almost see the characters as rock/paper/scissor rather than characters

Just googled both of these new 'insects' and the most relevant and notable predator of both is the Spider......

Well, both these 2 assassins are going to get their butts handed to them. Hopefully by the girls they attacked.

 

Why?

 

They are just too confident in their attacks. Plus shounen tropes.

Will we see Caterpillar being scanned again?

So basically....Centipede is this manga's Dio? X) (Says muda muda, thinks other people are slow because stopped time, derp )

Spoiler

So.. the queen bitch ant is afraid of one insect... didn't think that could happen

 

Rather than being afraid of the insect, she's afraid of what the insect will do, which seem to implies she'll kill everyone (whereas the queen just want to cull the weak ones off only)

 

It's like if in Battle Royale one guy get a button to nuke the whole island.

New chapter, doesn't explain who our mystery insect is.

 

Damn it.

So.. the queen bitch ant is afraid of one insect... didn't think that could happen

Kumo calling Alice his daughter is just too sweet.

Kumo is such a Tsundere dontunderstandplz.gif?1

Kumo calling Alice his daughter is just too sweet.

 

Or literal

Spoiler

"Protect my daughter" I wonder who is the insect yet to be named that even frighten the pirate-gothic-eye-patch-girl. 

It's just used as a catch-all term. The Japanese common term for insect is even less specific than English in referring to true insects vs insect-like arthropods, especially since Japanese is very context-based. Using 昆虫 to refer to scorpions or spiders is linguistically correct ( not having the raws, I assume that term is the one being used, it being the most common word in daily usage). And I also assume its easier to translate it into English that way than mess up the conversational context.

Usually, from what I've read (also one of my special interests), the closest term for "bugs" in japanese would be closer to "mushi", but it's quite a catch-all term which refers to "everything that crawls", which includes some snakes and worms. =/

Kumo calling Alice his daughter is just too sweet.

...some people are actually reading this for the plot?

 

Stop making posts where multiple people reply to them :/ it's hard to keep track of all the likes I need to give to those people.

Also, for putting all these facts, the author does make his fair share of mistakes,  spiders not being insects is well known, insects are actually only hexapods (six legs), so the scorpion (eight legs, an arachnid too) and centipede (myriapod) mentioned thus far also arent insects.

It's nice being able to release a manga more than once every half year... We might not be able to get chapters out this fast all the time but it definitely should be better than before!

The reason why Alice is so OP and seems able to beat everything is pretty simple, while all of these assasins have their skillset shaped after one specific species (we've met pairs of two different crickets and wasps already), alice seems to pull skills from EVERY kind of spider out there.

I too am one of the 'some' that read this for the plot

The only problem I have with this is that all the fights boil down to "Spiders are cool mmmm'kay?"

...some people are actually reading this for the plot?

I believe I am part of those "some people".

...some people are actually reading this for the plot?

I would be one as well

...some people are actually reading this for the plot?

Ah, yes i would be one of those...

...some people are actually reading this for the plot?

Who the feck left those gazillion kilometers of string effin' EVERYWHERE GODDAMNIT !

- the school's cleaning personel

S-sorry my strings got out of hand *wink*
