This is my first review on MAL about Kumo desu ga which currently have no other reviews. Also this review is for the WN and I'm up-to-date including all side chapters.

Story 10/10

The story is about Kumoko and her classmates reincarnating into another world with gamelike features. The main story focuses on Kumoko and the side stories focuses on her classmates and world building(they are not necessary to be read but they will be referenced later). The strong points about the story is how gradually it builds up the world, the world's systems and how continuous it is. I also like the plot that will read more

If there are typical Novels out there where the MC have been transfered in the fantasy world, and then becomes OP and gets a Harem and bla-bla-bla-bla...

This one is totally better than any other, like you’re reading a chinese fantasy novel (god defying mc) combined with game elements (grinding) then there’s a comedy parody and breaking the 4th wall with its counter part brutal and dark plot. Our protagonist is the legendary nope ‘Spider’ and the other characters are: ‘The Pacifist Hero’ ‘Unconscious Gay Bestfriend’ ‘Moe Loli Teacher’ Yandere BroCon Sister’ ‘Stupid wannabe king of the world’ ‘Fanatic Religious girl’ ‘Pathetic Ninja’ ‘A combined read more

This review is based on the official NA translation of the first volume. It will be updated once more volumes come out.

Story: 5
In the first volume of this light novel, not much in terms of story goes on. The main "plot," is about a girl reincarnated into another world(isekai) as a spider. She finds herself surviving in a harsh environment and is left to her own devices. Despite there being not much story telling, there are hints as to which direction the story plans on going and the way the story is being told makes me excited for whats to come.

Character: 8
Ultimately this is a read more

"342" That is the biggest amount of chapters I've read from any media, Probably the most sense middle school when I read Chapter books daily.

342 I find to be a lot. 342 is also enough to experience several experiences while reading. I've seen massive spikes in quality of the grammar and story interest.

First, let me get this out of the way. it took me awhile to even read this with it being around a week or so. Normally I can read a 200 chapter story around 3 days. But with the quality of the grammar and translation, it was hard for me to read more
