Waiting 20 days for 16 pages is torture

 

Aye, that's why I've been reading the novel translations.

 

It gets... complicated but I quite like it.

 

I think I'll like the manga more than the novel translations in the end though. The manga so far feels more cohesive. The web novel has some perspective jumping early on that I didn't care about because it didn't feel as integrated.

And when does she evolve into an Arachne !?

Drider is an "Arachne"... A humanoid with the upper body of a dark elf and lower body of a spider. Pretty cool I might add.

Honestly, this manga stands out by the simple fact that it's gone this long and stayed this entertaining on the strength of a single character alone. How many stories can you think of that manage to do that? Hell, how many authors can you see even attempting something like that? Even the most laser-focused stories with the most minimal of casts build most of their characterisation on dialogue and interplay between different people. Here, all we have are Kumo and the labyrinth, and yet both of them are so brimming with character that I'm still genuinely interested in seeing more of them.

Honestly, the original web novel starts LOSING steam once other characters get involved, partially because they keep Kumoko from being her Kumoko-est. . It is kind of backwards in that once there's a plot and interpersonal relations things get bogged down.  (The problem is made worse by Kumoko's power level rising stupidly fast at around the same time.)

Bless the artist for being so entertaining with the adaptation

This is what I'd call a good adaption.

It changes itself flexibly to fit the medium and express itself in the most defining way it can.

Finally, Zoa Ere is here. Dat subtle foreshadowing tho...

But when will she evolve into a Drider?!


And when does she evolve into an Arachne !?

Whoever recommended me this, you know who you are, i forgot your name, anyway, you are a piece of shit liar, this is exactly the same as any other isekai story out there, but with a spider girl instead of a slime or a goblin, and she was born OP her struggles are superficial and her plot armor unbelievable each time something happens she conveniently levels up, granted she doesn't hits max lvl in 2 chapters and becomes the new demon lord, but shit she is getting there fast just the same, even more since apparently the author has her getting a passive skill that increases her xp gain even more than before, she has appraisal as a lvl 1 skill as is tradition by now, and is getting free additional ones with just existing as is tradition by now, this is nothing new, this is as cliche as cliche can get.

And the humor, this is not Hinamatsuri level, not even close, as a matter of fact, it is quite insulting to compare the two, this series may not be bad, it probably is a 5 or even 6 /10, but your overhyping made it quite a mediocre experience, because this is just not delivering, and this is all on you.


"She was born OP"

I'm sorry? Are you illiterate and retarded or did you not even read the story at all? She starts off weak as shit, so weak that the weakest inhabitants of the ecosystem can kill her in a few hits, and her only method of healing is by leveling up. Even now she's struggling to survive. Her struggles aren't "superficial" considering she's practically on the verge of death 24/7, unless you consider her being the sole character being "plot armor," which is, you know, actually a valid criticism but you didn't specifically mention at all. It's almost like you're talking out of your ass with this entire comment or something.

There are certainly issues and criticisms to be had, but making shit up like this just to be contrarian is just embarrassing.
Is it just me, or is page 16 missing? I just get alt text.

Just wait until the author brings in more characters. Hopefully the skill translates from WN to LN and then to manga, because it's good.

Give or take 20 chapters from now I guess. Not quite sure what WN chapter she evolves into the Zoa Ere (Looked it up, 88), but the Arachnee/Drider is roughly 180-190.

I don't know who recommended this story to you, but as someone who's read dozens of isekai stories and is up-to-date with Kumo desu ga's webnovel translations, this story does differ from most isekai stories in several ways (I say most because not all Isekai stories are unoriginal).

This is one of the great Isekai up to now. While the others have goods start but got boring very soon with the overpower MC and stupid harems.

so this is the third evo?

how many evo does she need to get humanoid form? can't wait to see her humanoid form

I know, nobody else would draw this in such entertaining way.

The one spoiler I'm glad i read.

I love this. Here's to hoping Kumo-chan becomes the boss of the dungeon in the end and kills those pesky humans who dare enter her lair.

 

But anything is fine as long as she doesn't become another generic "good guy" character who only does good and helps people even though it doesn't help her in any way.

 

The way this is going it's probably that all her classmates reincarnated into good lives but she got the shitty route because the one responsible (a classmate/teacher/godly being of the realm) is an asshole, so I really hope she becomes strong and seeks out revenge like "Oh, you thought you got rid of me. Well look at this: *Spreads the deadliest miasma around the world while laughing evilly*

 

At least that's the kinda shit I wanna read.

 

But let's see where this goes from now. It's hella entertaining so far. Best reincarnation story after Mushoku Tensei for sure. Even cooler than the Shield bro manga.

Lucky for you, She is not a "good guy"
