The Fruit of Evolution: Before I Knew It, My Life Had It Made is a Japanese fantasy light novel series written by Miku and illustrated by U35. It began serialization online in January 2014 on the user-generated novel publishing website Shōsetsuka ni Narō.

The “animal fantasy” story of The Evolution Fruit: Before I Knew it, My Life Had It Made! centers on Seiichi Hiiragi. Though at the bottom of his school’s social pecking order, he and his entire school are upended when everyone in the school is transported into another world. Seiichi finds himself alone and approached by a gorilla, who instead of attacking him, proposes to him.
