This small review is based on the latest chapter I read ( chapter 15 ) , might contain some spoilers but nothing serious .

Story : How do you feel life will be like in spiders perspective ? NAI WA !! , our heroine was just having a normal day in school , when SUDDENLY THERE WAS A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX !....just kidding ,but suddenly something strange happened, everyone in the class room including Kumoko started "vaporizing" , and then , Kumoko woke up thinking she got abducted , since she felt as if she was confined in a small bag.

These days I feel like there are a lot of these monster POV/reincarnation manga coming out. I would call this one a more realistic approach of someone level grinding their way up. Unlike being unreasonably overpowered from the get go, Kumo thinks through her situations in a logical way and makes decisions with the best of her existing abilities in order to adapt and survive. In the process she gets beat up, finds herself in pain, and gets scared, and all with a touch of humor which I honestly found refreshing and relatable.

So far I am enjoying the series, but I am looking forward read more

Started out fine, I actually liked it a lot, but now that I have reread and got to the latest chapter, I now realize how much of a dumpster fire this manga is.

To the point where I have basically dropped it and started reading the light novel, that I do recommend. My biggest problem is that the story tension and the "danger" all disappear at a certain point, it read more

Well I just caught up with the series last night and was pretty much impressed about how a story that lacks very much in terms of an overarching plot could be so enjoyable.

The protagonist is the reason why I would thoroughly recommend this story though. And, by that, I don't mean the protagonist taken by itself, but rather the synergy that a girl reincarnated as a weak spider can give.

You could recognize characters like hers in many series and they would not stand out as much. The reason why I bring into the discussion synergy is because she is all alone.

I do not intend that read more
