This Anime is Better Than I Thought

In Isekai Genre, It is not surprising to be reborn in a strange way. For instance, some are transported along with their body, some are only memories and some got reincarnated as a new individuals. But there are also times that this genre can be unexpected. Especially with those individuals that got Isekai'd as not humans. A popular example of these is "Rimuru Tempest" of That Time I Got Reincarnated as Slime.

But this article is not about him. It is all about Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? or So I'm a Spider, So What?. It is a story of a girl who got reincarnated as a spider after she died in an explosion caused by the fight between Demon Lord and a Hero. Struggling to survive as a creature considered to be the weakest, how can she find her classmates that are also reincarnated and find her true objectives.

This anime is a Winter 2021 Anime, which means it started to air last January 2021. It is a 24 episode anime for each first season and it ended last few weeks ago. The first season is all about the survival of our cute spider inside the labyrinth until she finally got out and get her human form. It is fun and entertaining but unfortunately, most people are not a fan of its animation. I agree with that too because I also find CGI in this anime annoying and low quality.

But What Makes It Better Than I Initially Thought?

The Story is Better Than I Expect

I almost dropped this series once because of its story. I thought it would be just a rip off of Slime anime because of how they started. They are both reincarnated as non-human creatures and gain the ability to devour other creatures to make them stronger. But unlike Rimuru who instantly become stronger after he devours Veldora, the protagonist in this anime suffer so many things just to get powerful. Its character development is even better than Rimuru during its first season.

Its Plot Twists are Crazy

Another thing why I started to like its story is because of the plot twists in the last few episodes of this anime. I thought it would be linear like all of the reincarnate are born at the same time and their goal is to be reunited again. But after knowing that the spider protagonist is the first one to be born and she affected drastically her other classmates' reincarnation. It's hard to explain its story but it's definitely better.

The Main Character is a Bomb

Not just because her human form is hot but it's because of how neutral she is. Rimuru might be like this but this little spider is on the whole level. She's neutral from the very start. She cures the humans that are sick or injured but she also kills and eats some of them. She kills other monsters, even her own mother and her fellow spiders, but she protected a baby vampire. This cute and harmless looking spider even started a war and refuse to help them. And the craziest of all is she even become an accomplice of the Demon Lord that attacked her classmates. I don't know why but I'm attracted to this character. She may act goofy and innocent but deep inside she's a monster.

Its Animation is Not that Bad

This is the reason why most people hate this anime but I think it's okay. Its animation is a mixture of CGI and traditional animation. Some scenes are purely CGI but there are scenes that it's completely normal. I get it that CGI cost less but I think if they just put a better budget on this anime, it would be the best. The CGI quality is the worst and I think it affected the overall quality of anime. The none human creatures might be hard to animate but their CGI monsters are just horrible. So compared to full CGI anime, this anime is not that bad.

It's not clear if it will have a second season. I hope it does. It ended in a cliffhanger and it's unfair. It just gets better and now we have to wait a second season that may take a long time before it releases. Well anyways this anime is so interesting and if you love Isekai anime, you should check this out.

I read the first part of the article as I'm only on episode 12 right now... I like how this anime approaches the isekai idea too, but I have fears to what will happen in the rest of the season. Good stuff!

Actually starting from episode 12 onwards, the anime gets better. It just ended in a cliffhanger and we don't know if we even get another season.
