There are manga's out there that are enjoyable while at the same time being very lackluster storywise and characterwise: such is the case of Arachnid. Although it was a somewhat enjoyable read, its premise was dull and generic, the characters suffering from the very same issue. It must be said that the action presented is entertaining, as well as the abilities of the characters. Arachnid is mainly an action shōnen, yet it has some dramatic elements as well.


The setting of the story is generic, the highschool girl Alice being tormented by her uncle everyday, until one day she encounters him murdered by an assassin called read more

Overall it was a great manga and sadly we won't be able to read about the whole story, rest in piece author-san.
I recommend reading the Spin-Off "Caterpillar" first.

Story - Quite an interesting plot, the whole story was based off of people or these assassins, incorporating these insects as a pillar for their distinctive way of killing. One thing I do have to complain about is the lack of the background story being built in the initial stages of the story, though i do understand that, that was for the best in the later stages. going along with that, i was confused at certain parts read more

To be frankly, if I would go way more in depth on the rating, I would probably go for a 6, but I have my reason. and I will compare this manga with the author's other work Killing Bites. My anime list is raising to almost 300 but I still am not good at judging what a good or bad anime/manga is, but I think I will become better when writing more in depth reviews (reason: I like Fairy Tail, while a lot hate it, because it was my first encounter towards anime).

Has a crappy story if you look at it normally, but this read more

So Arachnid, a action, horror, dark story about our main protagonist Alice Fuji, a high school student which gets bullied at school and suffers from her uncles abuse at home all changes in a blink of a moment. A professional assassin, which was to kill her uncle takes her with him and teaches her the ways and methods of becoming an assassin herself. The entire manga has a quite darker and tense feeling with it. At first when I started reading it I just read about 10 chapters and left it on hold but after getting back and reading the entire set in a couple read more
