I personally like transformation stories. That a change happens that the MC can't simply ignore.
Nonetheless, I really wish for the character to still behave like a normal person. If not I ask myself what even is the point of the MC being a former human if they for example just act like any other demon.

Also, I have a preferation for female MCs.
Maybe I just got tired of all those harem protagonists. But even if they're not like this, I find that the stuff that happens has less impact. It's somewhat expected from a male character to fight and survive. I find the emotional turmoil of a girl far more relatable.

What I really dislike is when the girl big plastered on a cover is not the supposed MC but the pale guy in the background of the right corner.

I need to admit, today's chapter of slime girl bit off a big chunk of its predecessor and the following one, becoming a bit of an oversized monstrosity on their cost. Well, nothing to do about it.

Sizano · Jan 5, 2023

A general question now that I have started Formicea as well as Arachne. 
I know they are in the same universe as Slime Girl, how are they related to each other in the sense of time and space? I presume they are at least taking place on the same continent at least looking at the similar culture. Are they happening at the same time or in vastly different periods?

expentio · Author · Jan 5, 2023

Roughly the same time. Not sure if it already came, but there's a line in Slime Girl that Koreso is currently at war.

expentio · Author · Jan 5, 2023

From the country descriptions, you can tell about the location. Rakis is east of Koreso, Koreso is three times Rakis' size (You got a map of Rakis in chapter 14). Tarsona as a competitor is at least big enough to keep up with Koreso.

The Evergrove is south of Koreso and Rakis. One of the first things you hear in Arachne is that they're in the west of a huge forest famous for its monsters (which one might that be?)

Sizano · Jan 5, 2023

Good to know. Yeah, it was definitly mentioned but I didn't really memorize the names of the countries while readingclear.png It and geography didn't really come up often enough. Tho I definitly remembered Rakis as a name. I'm smart like that.clear.png

expentio · Author · Jan 1, 2023

Was really unsure if I should add the translation for Formicea speech in the new chapter. Now I did it in a spoiler tag. You can decide for yourself if you want to.

VoidSeeker · Dec 30, 2022

Did you make arachne weekly after just 3 chapters?

expentio · Author · Dec 30, 2022

Sorry, but I don't have too many of them and can't push out as many as I would like to. Just close to 60k words yet. Those dwindle down faster than I would like it. Don't see another way but being a bit frugal with the releases.

Piisfun · Dec 26, 2022

I supose I should ask: which day of the week do you intend to assign Arachne chapter releases to?

Pupparo · Dec 26, 2022

I think you should do Monday. It would mean fewer days without uploads, and i'd like that

Sizano · Jan 5, 2023

@Pupparo yeah, but then they'd be listening to an egg and I don't know if that is an adviseable course of action under any circumstances...clear.png

expentio · Author · Jan 5, 2023

For now, I'm inclined to Sunday to go for an insect Sunday. Yet I wouldn't say it's final.

Sizano · Jan 5, 2023

@expentio sounds good imo.

expentio · Author · Dec 24, 2022

So for everyone who's interested. I just released another story. The title is "Arachne". I guess I don't have to be more specific than this. Alternatively, you can look under related stories below Formicea or Slime Girl.

Consider it a Christmas present.

Octocat · Dec 24, 2022

Very good. Consider this cookie my present clear.pngclear.png 

Piisfun · Dec 24, 2022

I should have known that our newly minted Arachne would have arachnophobia...

uglyhorsE · Dec 25, 2022

:DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

expentio · Author · Dec 23, 2022

I finally did it. I removed the bulletpoints for everything that isn't a skill name or linking out of slime girl and while I was at it also did thorough editing. God, was that an effort!

expentio · Author · Nov 27, 2022

Today, through some weird copy error I accidentally publishd a version of the chapter Formicea before I edited it with the help of Saril (many thanks by the way). Just to tell you that it's now a bit different, yet not in a story affecting way.

expentio · Author · Nov 25, 2022

Uh, I know it's my job to keep on track with this, but does anyone know how the money exchange was in slime girl until now? I noted before they reached the count that it was 7 copper, 9 silver and 1 gold (the last being what they looted from the bounty hunters) but then kinda stopped with the expenses, income list.

Did she bought anything when her party was on a mission in the village?

expentio · Author · Nov 25, 2022

I'm pretty sure I at least made the count give her some money before the departure. Not sure if there's anything else.

Saril1489 · Nov 25, 2022

Well, they kept saying they were taking her expenses out of her pay, so I don't think she paid for anything while with the count, and I don't recall her getting any by other means. So 10 gold from the count, possible loot from the encounter while traveling (I'm not sure if they didn't have money or if it was dissolved, currently unspecified), and 1 silver expense at the gate of the city.

expentio · Author · Nov 25, 2022

Thanks. That helps.

Piisfun · Nov 23, 2022

Well, somehow Slime Girl and Formicea have both made it on trending in spots #1 and #3 respectively today...

expentio · Author · Nov 23, 2022

All thanks to careful algorithm manipulation and a new reader writing "Thank you" below each single chap in Formicea.clear.png

expentio · Author · Nov 19, 2022

Slime Girl is back!!!

Octocat · Nov 19, 2022

Yay! ٩( ᐛ )و 

expentio · Author · Nov 11, 2022

If it works out, I want to post the next chapter of slime girl next week. Got stalled by different things, mostly by the fact that there was always another inbetween chapter coming up.

expentio · Author · Nov 4, 2022

So, since comments tended to pro-bulletpoint removal I started doing so. Currently at chapter 10. Being able to influence this is one of the perks of being follower.

expentio · Author · Nov 2, 2022

I'm thinking about removing the bulletpoints in slime girl aside from attack/ability calls and telepathical connection. How do you think about this?

Octocat · Nov 2, 2022

I don't mind the bulletpoints at all. But it would be work for you to remove them... 

expentio · Author · Nov 2, 2022

I meant that I would keep linking conversations and things like Shari calling "Slime dash" since those are something else.

Regarding names, if my memory serves me right it was inconsistent so I edited it.

And yes, it's certainly a piece of work. In some earlier corrections of the first chapters (which are now in a far better state than at the start for anyone to reread) I dumped quite many of them.

lepikuwu · Nov 3, 2022

I think those kind of silent talking/thoughts in bulletpoints should be replaced with italic instead. Some of light novels I read use italic text that way.

expentio · Author · Nov 3, 2022

I'm using italics for whispering. Bulletpoints were for strong, active thoughts.

expentio · Author · Oct 23, 2022

Thought I shouldd give an update. Slime girl might take around 3 more weeks till I can again start posting.

Be careful. Slimes can sense you through the smallest gaps. And naturally, pass through them as well.

Octocat · Oct 25, 2022

clear.png I hope it’s Shari that’s passing through 

expentio · Author · Oct 25, 2022

You know... If it's her then Liqu isn't far away. And considering what she might think of you two alone in your tent...

Octocat · Oct 25, 2022

clear.pngclear.pngclear.png Maybe if I give her meat? Sacrifice one or two of the other readers?
