They can be loud and annoying… but it wouldn’t be summer without them.

Their name is semi/セミ in Japanese.

They’re often featured in pop culture

You can catch a bunch of them in Animal crossing…

…or hear the din of cicada calls in anime shows.

They start of like this:

Then shed their skin, their wings spread out and harden and they turn into their full-cicada-glory.

You can see their creepy skins left behind everywhere…
