Just watched the first episode. It's very silly. The MC is a little annoying and makes non-stop jokes or silly movements/comments. I don't mind a bit of comedy in anime but too much is excessive. I don't have high hopes for this anime but I'll keep watching and see where it goes.

My favorite new show of the season — absolutely delightful. Perfectly scratches the BOFURI itch.

I only gave this a high rating because of the light novel. Since I'm way ahead in the light novel, the anime was an awful experience for me all because of the pathetic CGI Animation. I'd advice everyone to read the light novel instead of watching this piece of s**t.

Anime-only watcher. Show had its ups and downs. It's watchable to the end because it evens out. The pacing and Aoi Yuuki are what kept me watching. I'm glad I stuck it out because the story went in a completely different route than I had anticipated. Time to pick up the Light Novel!

Dropping this as I can't see myself lasting through a 2 cour of this. According to some previews this was supposed to be great but the back-loaded magic academy stuff is uninteresting and the spider segments while having at least some personality are just the same thing every episode.

Hmm. I get the premise, and I can sort of see the appeal. It's fine, the comedy is dark/parody of the isekai, RPG and reincarnation genre, and the protag/MC is unusual, if a little bit too glib/sarcastic for a spider. My Spider-Sense is tingling though, as this could be a 5/10 show, even with the high budget and decent art, decent voice acting, etc. There's LN/Manga 'vibes' and it's a bit ... mediocre if you've seen a few Isekai's or you watch seasonal anime and pick up the tropes/cliches. They're not mistakes, but ... the setup does take away the unreality of waking up as a 'monster' if there's no maudlin / wallowing, Waking up as a cannibal monster with no hope or rendition towards regret, vanity, desire, wishes to return back, etc. The horror is glimpsed and tucked away. acid burns are 'ignored' etc. but, time is money. Maybe the LN handles this, but Anime doesn't have the luxury to wallow unless there's gravity or consequences to explore either. So, I don't know if this is going to be good or not, given that it resembles AriFureta and Slime, but with a female POV. er, Apparently Female POV. Second episode should settle the question for character development and writing, to see if it's gruelling to endure, mediocre or watchable. This can either become saccharine (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime), Insane wish fulfilment/Angst fantasy (Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest), or it might try to straddle the line between cute and crazy and, yeah, Fake. The whiplash from waking up as a spider is irking, and the 'peer group' of school friends is more of an omen that the show has strong LN/manga roots, and i'm not confident that the show is good given the first episode. My gut feeling is that there's going to be an Evolution from "cute" to "Hot" Spider-Monster half-spider/half-girl somewhere, because, Japan, with a final battle that evolves to turn nto a "spidergirl" human with a supernatural magic form. Perhaps after a season arc where she has to fight a former friend, sic. If this turns out to be a spoiler, it wasn't intended, there's just signposts / lampshades in the art and Glib/Dark comedy. If there's a giant dragon in a Cave as the end-boss, or the Cave Arc ends up as a parody of Slime, etc. If Kumo takes a more RPG-esque route, or the character improves i'll be impressed to give this better than a 6/10. It's probably not intending to be Slime/AriFureta, or that the LN probably has a similar buildup, but the idea of a school group reincarnating outside of human 'vessels' or weren't "Born" anew is ... different. The CG looks like it took a lot of time, so perhaps it's going to develop past the 'comedy' in the premise.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
