I don’t know who had the insane idea to make a Japanese live-action version of Spiderman, but I’m just glad that it exists. And glad that Marvel has, for some reason, decided to stream episodes for free on their web site. There’s also a very odd Spiderman manga I’ve read a bit of, which may or may not be based on the plot of this show.

Actually, Roy… you should switch to Astro-Archaeology. I understand there’s an opening at the Yamashiro Lab.
“I don’t know who had the insane idea”
Short answer: toy companies.
Spiderman creator Stan Lee is a fan of manga. In fact he admires the more “diverse” audience comics in Japan have. Apparently he has friends in Japan that he develops comics with too.

And how about Italian Spiderman?
Now all we need is for Chip Kidd to produce a garish book filled with mistranslations of the show.
What. The. Hell. Was. That.
