So I’m a Spider, So What? ep 24 (series finale)

Rating: 3.5 First, apologies for the delay on posting this. I have talked about this final episode extensively in other forums, so it slipped my mind that I had not done a proper write-up here. After episode 23, I was a bit worried about how the final episode would manage to cover everything that wasContinue reading “So I’m a Spider, So What? ep 24 (series finale)”

So I’m a Spider, So What? episode 23

Rating: 3.5 In a surprising move (from the viewpoint of a novel reader), the series’ penultimate episode spends nearly its entire run focusing on the confrontation between Shun’s group and Hugo’s forces – and really, mostly Sophia, since Hugo does not last terribly long before Sophia must step in once again. This is definitely anContinue reading “So I’m a Spider, So What? episode 23”

So I’m a Spider, So What? episode 22

Rating: 3.5 As expected, Kumoko’s timeline returns to center stage for this episode, with the human timeline only getting the last couple of minutes as it shows a bit more of Shun stepping in to fight Hugo. As feared, the wonky use of CG also continues unabated, with more than just the purely action componentsContinue reading “So I’m a Spider, So What? episode 22”

So I’m a Spider, So What? episode 21

Rating: 3 As the title of this episode – “So, I’m Not in This One, Am I?” – suggests, the titular character does not appear at all in this episode. (Or at least not in spider form in the spider-side timeline, anyway.) White – who’s been all but outright said to be the human-side versionContinue reading “So I’m a Spider, So What? episode 21”

So I’m A Spider, So What? Episode 20

Rating: 4.5 To answer the question in the episode title – “this isn’t my fault, is it?” – yes, Kumoko, this one is most definitely your fault, both directly and indirectly. However, it’s not entirely your fault, as you also unwittingly played into the plans of a country that was just looking for a triggerContinue reading “So I’m A Spider, So What? Episode 20”

So I’m A Spider, So What? Episode 19

Rating: 4 In this episode, both the spider and the human protagonists reach goals that they have been pursuing for several episodes now. The results are entirely different, and atypically, the spider side is the one which comes up a bit disappointing this time. That side starts with Kumoko being an object of veneration byContinue reading “So I’m A Spider, So What? Episode 19”

So I’m a Spider, So What? episode 18

Rating: 4 What happens when you go flashing your OP powers around normal people without thinking much about the consequences? You become a religious icon, of course! That is the entirely sensible conclusion of this episode, which combines a look at five different viewpoints and a peek at some of the setting’s bigger machinations inContinue reading “So I’m a Spider, So What? episode 18”

So I’m A Spider, So What? Episode 17

Rating: 4 The bulk of this episode focuses on the human side. One of the episode’s late scenes shows the likely reason why: by doing so, it explicitly puts Schlain’s group and the Demon Lord and her forces on a direct (if eventual) collision course at the elf village. The more interesting aspect at thisContinue reading “So I’m A Spider, So What? Episode 17”

So I’m A Spider, So What? episode 16

Rating: 4.5 As this series goes, episode 16 has little bits of everything. It has little bits of action, little bits of revelations, plot advancement, character transformations, and guest reappearances, and not-so-little bits of revelation. And oh, yes, it also has little bits of Kumoko – rather literally, in the final scene. Exactly what’s mostContinue reading “So I’m A Spider, So What? episode 16”

So I’m A Spider, So What? episode 15

Rating: 4 Last episode ended with Kumoko going on the mental offensive against her mother. This episode is nearly all about how her mother responds, and she certainly isn’t taking the threat that Kumoko poses lightly. In fact, not only is she multiple times more powerful than Araba, but she’s also at least as smartContinue reading “So I’m A Spider, So What? episode 15”
