What a waste of an interesting story and world.

I can only imagine how great this would have been if a good studio got their hands on it. There were points in this episode that I had no idea what was happening because the direction and animation were so all over the place. Plus that extremely rushed ending with Kumoko suddenly on Ariel’s side and them being the undisputed good guys in the story.

Very disappointed. 3/10. Closer to a 4 than a 2.

There's not good guy in this story.... Other than Shun but we all know how that ended.
Literally all the mentions of "Save the wolrd" or "We're the heroes" in Kumoko's side were added by the anime. In the novel Kumoko only says that she needs to do something, later in the story is revealed that that "something" was
.

It is kind of funny that the anime called the Demon Side the "Good Guys" 'cuz the "Good Guys" plan involves

wow, this ending was bad, I never thought they would cleanly end it, but good god this was a hell of a rush job, they honestly would have been better off not having the hero side at all and just focusing on the spider so we can get to a logical conclusion point instead of cutting the anime literally mid fight and a seems like a condensed episode that could have been spaced out into 3 or 4

Funny enough this is more or less how Volume 5 ends.
The author doesn't like the episodic feeling of most LNs, so aside from the first arc (Elroe Great Labyrinth) most arcs in the novel aren't ended at the end of the volume but in the middle and the rest of the volume introduce the next event.

In fact, if the anime followed more closely this volume the ending would be worst. This volume (Volume 5) ends with:

Well, it seems that the vampire thing doesn't really matter in later volume in Demon Land (Sophia is way to strong to have any problem with her or Merazophis species).

Just finished this last night and I really enjoyed it!
I mean, from the first episode, I thought this is jus Tensura lookalike, a copy. But after 12 episode later I was just fascinated into Kumoko characters and the dual timeline plot really refreshing. I mean, without any timestamp, it force us to think what the correlation between Kumoko story and the Human world/Shun story.

I don't know if this show will ever get 2nd season, but it will be wasteful just to end this show at this episode, I want more of Kumoko's time!!

Overall, a good 7/10 for me.

Now that it finished i can say the human part was trash for the full 24 episode, and we are talking about drop tier trash here.
At least "next season" will show if it was really a waste of time (if kumoko did nothing for 15 year, it would make sense as story writtingi) and possible Shun retardness who will not understant the forbidden knowledge he just got, i can call it without a second of hesitation

Cheating death by using copies huh a novel idea indeed. Sophia's response to the mechs though sure was cool. If anything unlike Shun and co the reincarnates serving the demons had the time to actually develop their skills making them far more deadly opponents. Taboo ended up having quite the price to be paid huh. Kumoko's new bod sure is really something. Quite the increase in vision range as well. Sophia sure managed to avoid death via the use of quite the unique method. Kumoko and Potimas sure didn't match well at all ability wise. Its nice that in the end a truce was agreed between Ariel and Kumoko. Still with this at least we know how Sophia ended up joining the demon army with her trusted protector. As well as where Kumoko stands in the present as well. Overall an interesting ep that did well in both resolving Kumoko's and Sophia's past while leaving plenty of plotlines within the present to continue with in the next season. Overall an 8/10 will be the best score i think.

That was a great re-watch. I love how since I knew Kumoko was on the Demon Lord team my support was fully on their side lol.

I can't wait to get past the anime portion of the light novel and get onto the adventures of Ariel and Kumoko. I've heard good stuff from it. I love how you always see Ariel and Kumoko together in most scenes. Can't wait for the cute bonding.

Is it just me or did the quality of the CGI degrade over the last 4 episodes or so? Also, the CGI usage appeared in scenes it has no business being in. Anybody feel differently?

Those machines were a lot more useless than I expected. They don't seem much more useful than the elf fodder.

Speaking of elf fodder, I really didn't care much for the half-elf girl's death/revival. It also feels like we need more explanation on where this mercy skill came from. At least with taboo Shun might become a little more knowledgable of the world.

Hiro's arrival in the present timeline sent chills down my spine.

Hiro's fight against Potimas was surprisingly cool. Potimas is more dangerous than I gave him credit for. Shutting down skills/magic and most stats is op. Too bad the machines couldn't do the same.

We finally get an explanation with how Hiro and Ariel started working together. Too bad we won't see their journey into war with the humans unless we somehow get a season 2.

Well it's hard to say that the machines are not OP (magic has no effect on them after all), but it's clear that Sophia is much more powerfull than expected.

I agree, the CGI is very bad over the last 4 episodes. Glad they make better animation on the final battle between Potimas and Wakaba.

Aoi Yuuki crushed it as Kumoko, and that first ED is an all timer. It's kind of weird to imagine watching a dub and then it just cuts to Aoi Yuuki's ED as Kumoko.

Ugh... What a way to ruin a great concept. How can a show called So I'm a Spider, So What? have so little spider in it? Every time they showed me the idealistic/traitorous humans, I wanted to barf. If I wanted to see a generic fantasy anime with a "Let's Kill God" complex, there are dozens of other choices I could have picked. Also:



Started as an 8, by the end it became a low 6.

This season absolutely just a prologue, so i can tell why people still confuse or drop it. It leaves some whole plots there and It takes 5 volumes of LN just to connect present and future only. Once it gets S2 you'll see how good and bad human at same time while Spider Girl and Demon Lord also her gang will take a long journey. Many great events will come later.

Potimas hasn't show up his trump card yet. That small glorias just his first move to fight against demon army there.

Dawwwg I’m mad af because I never knew the final episode to this had aired. I knew it was delayed, but I didn’t know it came out the following week. I’ve missed this for 8 weeks wtf.

As for the episode, my God they should’ve held this until August minimum. The production quantity was abysmal. Felt rushed, looked horrible and just didn’t have any of that magic we’ve come to expect from kumo desu. I’m glad we finally got some clarification on Potimas and the battle lines are now clearly drawn, but I think this was poorly done. I’ll have to get the LNs because I don’t trust this studio to tell this story. Hopefully someone else steps in

That's not his real body, as evidenced by how he was killed by Sophia earlier and still survived.

As for why that body in particular, it's explained in one of the next two novels:

Holy crap this probably had the worst music of any anime I’ve seen. If you’re going to put after-credit scenes after most of the episodes at least make the ending theme bearable. It was literally just noise.

The CGI, or pseudo-CGI, they used was absolutely terrible. The traditional animation wasn’t much better but I would have still preferred it 100% of the time. Its use didn’t seem that bad, or not as prolific, during the first 2/3 of the show but the final episodes were horribly plagued by it. During these scenes the Sub and dub were like watching a cliche 90s anime dub where they don’t fix the lip movement or timing—it was just open, close, open, close like ducks were talking. Not to mention the horribly non-fluid, slow movements especially during fight scenes.

Honestly, this episode left a lot to be desired. Was it good? Kind of. It was alright. It felt more like the episode before the finale though which was a bummer. The show uses deus ex machina entirely too much (but that can probably be said about most anime) and it does the cliche thing where it throws a ton of skills and text at you entirely too fast for you to comprehend but still long enough to get that this is “just like your vidya games, you youngins’!” Seriously, at some points I needed to pause and squint my eyes just to read all the skills because the skill list became a literal chapter from a LN on screen. Also, none of the skills really matter until they do, the writers even realized this by having to remind the viewer that the MC had skill #472 before it saves her life multiple times.


I waited a bit before starting this series because the first episode really didn’t catch my attention but I decided to give it a go recently after it concluded and I’m glad I did. If I had to wait weekly for these episodes I might have dropped it. Don’t get me wrong, it was fun and entertaining but it was also a hot mess. The fact that these people who were good friends meet up for the first time and just think to themselves “okay, I’m going to kill you” without any reason except they’re on team A and the others are on team B is just dumb. There’s no compassion or sympathy whatsoever expressed between any of the classmates and it really pulled me out of whatever immersion the writers were going for.

Im giving the final episode a 7/10 and the whole series a 6/10.

What? Shun and the teacher are 100% trying to be sympathetic (not to mention the dragongirl), to a practically unbelievable degree. They've been in this world for 15 years, almost longer than they were alive in their previous life.

How is it logical for someone to have any significant attachment to people they barely knew for little more than a year 15 years ago?

If you're talking specifically about team spider; they have very, very good reasons for not appearing to care about their former classmates. Some of which was already explained, and some of which is revealed in the next segment of the story.

Please no spoilers.

Im 33, if I saw someone I knew from high school fall on the sidewalk I would have the compassion to at least ask if they were okay. Yes, some of them did show this compassion and unwillingness to kill each other but the ninja, forget his name, was friends with Shun, seemed like pretty good friends, and decided 15 years later that he would kill him without second thought?

I could understand it, maybe, if they spent more time developing the characters, even a single episode showing what they’ve gone through and why they might think and feel differently now but we got nothing. Idc and I don’t want to hear anything past the anime and I understand somethings are left for a possible season 2 but I don’t believe it was the right call to hold off in explaining justification of the behavior until the next season. It only makes the characters this season feel more 2D and bland.

i think he doesn't give a spoiler yet. Well i can feel you if you were watching Shun part. Sadly you won't get the real reason behind their POV in this series since it will be answered later if there is season 2 or 3. This first season probably was a prologue of endgame (Based Shun POV) that leave some mysteries would be revealed later.
