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

I do not intend that read more

After 19 chapters I have to admit, this might just be the most interesting take on the iskai genre I have ever seen.

However, it is a bit hard to judge by conventional methods, because of its lack of characters and overarching plot, metrics by which most stories are being critiqued.

As for the characters, there is only one: Our main heroine Kumoko, reincarnated as a spider. Any dialogue that the story contains is her internal monologues and commentaries on the world. While she is a sympathetic protagonist, that is the case more because of her unique circumstances, rather than an actually intriguing personality. She doesn't really read more
