Legend says that centuries ago, a colossal spider ravaged Tokyo. Resistance was futile, as none could quell the havoc wrought upon the city by the beast. Fortunately, one man—the legendary exorcist—stopped the devastation. Using his divine powers, he sealed the monster away and the world has enjoyed peace ever since.

Mizuki Henmi is an adolescent girl who is acquainted with Shu Suzuri, a dull young man who runs an old Japanese bookstore. During a routine visit to his store, Mizuki learns of a mysterious and valuable book that Shu is planning to sell. Unfortunately, the unrestrained Mizuki handles the book roughly, breaking the seal that kept it shut and revealing an odd entity—a cute spider.

Wasurenagumo tells the story of Mizuki, Shu, and their seemingly harmless spider. However, ominous winds begin blowing. While Shu is infatuated with his arachnid friend, Mizuki becomes wary of its every move…

MAL's Information lists this one-shot episode as Comedy, but it's actually a very understated horror short, and it is amazing.
The plot is well paced, and the characters are both likeable and well-developed despite the short time that is allotted to character development in a single 25 minute episode. There aren't many shows that fit into the same genre as this short, but the closest that I can think of in terms of atmosphere and style is Steins; Gate. which shares many of the same understated elements and atmosphere.
Fantastic episode left me wanting more because it was so perfect, but I'm glad it was exactly the ...

Cannibalistic story. Due to time constraints it is not well developed as scope is too large for 25 minutes. At the end we receive partial conclusion which doesn't make it better either. You cant call this comedy as in anime tags. Maybe a lighthearted horror short.

Still it is definitely worth to spend half hour to watch some cute monster birth and abhorrent human being who doesn't even heard of Jesus or human compassion. Although there is no nudity and no fanservice, it would serve as good intro/base material to some specific genre of doujinshi ("monster girl"). As otherwise it is hard to see any other ...

Li'l Spider-Girl, the story about a shopkeeper, Suzuri of Kokumondou who sell historic books and Mizuki, granddaughter of said land. Both investigate a sealed book that released a young spider demon.

The story itself has potential because of the simple set up but sticks to the basic plot of the said demon and its interaction with our characters. A good bit of humor with a bright and expressive character that does this short favor but as a whole, doesn't deviate much.

The animation was quality in a lot of respects in terms of fluidity and style. The animation is fluid with the theme and fits ...
