The day is as normal as it can be in high school as the students peacefully go about their everyday activities until an unprecedented catastrophe strikes the school, killing every person in its wake. Guided by what seems to be a miracle, a handful of students are fortunate enough to be reincarnated into another world as nobles, princes, and other kinds of people with prestigious backgrounds.

One girl, however, is not so lucky. Being reborn as a spider of the weakest kind, she immediately experiences the hardships of her dire situation. Even so, she must press on to survive the numerous threats that endanger her life. Discovering that her new world has a system like that of an RPG, she tries her best to hunt prey and defeat monsters to level up and evolve. As she gradually grows stronger, she hopes one day her efforts will be rewarded, and that she will be granted a better life.

If you made it past that widely undeserved score that was given to this show because sadly, everyone has a right to an opinion, then let me try to convince you as to why this show is actually one of the best isekais that exist. I'm writing this thing hoping at least one person decides to pick up the anime

So so so, so far the story isn't anywhere near its peak and I think it is rather obvious. For now we have the exhibition scene that is "class gets transported into this other world". So we've passed the checkmark, this show is an isekai.

The targeted audience:

-Simply enjoys without being an anti-cgi elitist
-Loves the fan-favorite mc spider kumoko

Now I know that some of you will watch regardless of what's said above, if you want to force yourself then that's up to you. But if you want to enjoy an isekai without a boring mc for once then this is the one for you.

Characters -


Honestly the reason why you're still watching the show. Finally we are met with an isekai mc that has witty dialogue, doesn't go over too cringy, relatable in a sense. Currently fighting in a seemingly never-ending dungeon arc that goes on for ages, somehow with just read more

The story is the best, light-hearted--- but somewhat dark comedy. Remember in the opening, she literally has guts hanging out. The positivity and what not shown by mc is a coping mechanism to the harsh environment and new reality.
8.5 out of 10. for story

Art, I know we all hate CGI, but this CGI is passable and somewhat good. Our spider CGI (i believe she is in CG) is done so well it blends it with 2d animation. You will notice some funky models in up to episode 5, but they improved each episode, or I just happen to adjust.

The spider isekai is finally here! How is it doing? What's it like so far? Well let me explain to you how it is so far!

Story and characters
The story follows Kumoko, as she's reincarnated as a spider as the title suggests. But she's not the only one! It seems her entire class has also been isekai'd! As we follow two different sides of a tale. Where one in Kumoko, showing us how one survives, how one levels up, how one gains skills and perks. All sorts. In the most over the top and energetic way. But it's done in a good and entertaining way. read more
