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.

There are two reasons as to why a lot of people are hating on this show and it's the CGI and confusing way the story is presented, Yes there is a lot of CGI in this anime and most fights are done in CGI and there are even moments where there is no fighting but somehow we still get CGI shots and I understand as to why some people might hate that but this isn't even one of the worst CGI's we've seen in anime there are some other Isekai shows that have it way way way worse than this one and to be completely ...

Mixed Feelings
TL;DR, Read the manga or light novel, both are significantly better.

I absolutely love the story of "蜘蛛ですが、なにか?", I have read both the light novel and the manga before the anime released; and both do a significantly better job portraying the story. The ONE saving grace of the entire anime is the spider side, Aoi Yuuki did an absolutely perfect job portraying Kumoko and I could sing her praises for her role in this show forever. It is a little strange at first that spider side is all in cg, but it looks significantly better than the human side all told. It really felt like the ...

Since the story itself isn't too deep, I won't spoil anything.
Tl;dr: Don't watch it, it's a MASSIVE waste of your time. Go watch Highschool DxD, story and visuals are way better.

Story: 3/10 | Getting reincarnated as a spider was something new, but the story itself was wayyyy too shallow.
Sound: 1/10 | Feels like at some point they just completly gave up on sounddesign, the fightscenes are flat, there's barely any sound. I kid you not. Imagine a dragon running through a cave, what do you expect to hear? Correct: Ton of bass, stomping, echoing, dust and rocks falling from the ceiling. But insted it just ...
