Reading this I thought, "I don't think spiders are that bad. Let's see what- nope nope nope." I like my spiders hiding in corners catching the moths that fly in through my AC unit, not coming out of peoples' mouths...

Yeah, the premise sounds awesome, but as soon as they took special mention to point out the spider stuff, I figured it must be really, really bad for arachnophobes like myself. Sad

I really love this manga, and I'm quite happy to say that I own an original Dmitri sketch drawn by the mangaka.

I would like to see her return to this story. Although where she left off is far enough for the reader arrive at a conclusion, I would like to see the deed done, rather than it being implied.

As for the insect thing, it's not too prevalent. Every so often, it's brought up or you see an insect crawling around, but it doesn't detract from the story much.

Setona Mizushiro is a master at her craft. After School Infirmary is one of the most beautifully strange things I've ever read. X Day is good, too, but not as outstanding. I had no idea more of her work was being translated. Great news!

The story does sound kind of interesting, but it's so not happening for me if there are spiders involved.
