I'm going to honest, I found this movie to be exceptionally stupid. Most of my problems actually come from the first 20 or so minutes, where I completely lost interest.

The moment where my problems start is the when they start the class after Shouko's introduction. The first thing came to my mind is, wouldn't it have been better for her to go to special school? Because this school is a completely average one and by the looks of it, they do nothing to help her, in fact, the teacher immediately forgot about her disability. That just felt stupid to me. Then the music scene happened.

Preliminary
After reading 43 chapters my conclusion is as follows: The manga is a middle of the road shonen action-adventure fantasy, however, it is rather competently handled, I would give it a solid 7.

The first chapter starts off interesting. I appreciated that when the manga tried to garner sympathy for the main hero, it didn't go for the usual overblown drama and tragedy. The first chapter had a somber, melancholic tone as the fatally wounded main character was stumbling through the ashes of the battlefield in a world that became a ruin, while he was reminiscing about his life and about the decisions that lead read more

So, this manga has been an interesting read, however not a particularly good one. While the story reveals in its own grimness, it doesn't give me much of a reason to care for it. Just as a warning, let me say this: You will need a level of "sick" curiosity if you want to put up with this manga. As a video gamer who was always intrigued by the possibilities of an evil playthrough, but never had the guts to pull it off, this story peaked my interest.

The biggest problem with the story is its own weightlessness, which is a direct result of the fact 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

Preliminary
I've read 26 chapters of the manga and there is one thing needs to be cleared about the synopsis: So far this world is rather peaceful, there are no dark forces threatening the world, therefore there is no need to save it, there is not even an overarching plot, the story is rather episodic. The beginning reminded me more of Konosuba, than the most other isekai fantasy stories. I have to admit I am pleasantly surprised about how entertaining the story turned out to be.

The biggest reason for the manga's success is because it doesn't raise the bar too high. It never takes itself too read more

I've read the first 26 chapters and my conclusion is as follows: This is a mediocre shonen action adventure fantasy story. Might just be the definition of an overall 5/10.

Let's start with the best part, the main character. Thanks to his cool demeanor and very pragmatic worldview he is a notch better than his peers, even though he is nothing really special. At least the story spends some time fleshing out his character. Initially his arrogant attitude and constant childish bickering with Arnold (one of his companions) were rather aggravating, but this issue seems to be coming up less as the story goes on, which read more

So far I've read 26 chapters and my opinion is as follows: This seems to be a rather generic isekai, fantasy story.

The main hook of the story is the fact that the MC is reincarnated as a slime. Which is interesting for the first 10 or so chapters, but not so much after. Once the novelty of this idea is gone you are left with a middle of the road fantasy story. I mean it is entertaining while it lasts, I give it that, but it doesn't last that long. Moreover, sometimes they go a little overboard with how OP the main hero is, they read more

Preliminary
I've read 15 chapters and so far this seems to be a middle of the road fantasy story. A solid, above average 6.

So far the story did some basic, but much welcome world building. I got a general sense where the story is going, but nothing concrete. However, it isn't really in a hurry to get anywhere interesting. Since it is just the beginning of the story I don't want to be too judgmental.

Something I wasn't satisfied with is the characters. The MC is generic but other than that I don't particularly have any problems with him. However, his "servants" Tomoe and Mio really need read more

There are two things I have heard about this story. Frist, that this is SAO done right, and secondly, that it's got an interesting main character who, thanks to a betrayal at the beginning of the story, becomes an untrusting bitter person. Unfortunately, the manga failed to live up to my (not particularly high) expectations. I have read 25 chapters, but I have little desire to continue. I would like to advise caution to everyone, who wishes to read it because, in my opinion, this manga is not worth more than 4 overall.

Let's start with the main hero. In light of the synopsis, I've expected read more
