The world where the Hero and the Demon King continue to oppose each other. The grand magic from the Hero and the Demon King cross over worlds and exploded in the classroom of a certain high school.

The students who died in the explosion will be reincarnated in a different world. The protagonist, who had the lowest reputation in the class, was reincarnated into a spider. Nevertheless, she adapted quickly to the present condition with strong willpower.

This is a story of she who has become a spider trying whatever she can to live.

Personal Review:

The story starts off with a lighthearded, comedic feeling. It gives off the feel of a gag manga, but progressively reveals itself to be a hidden gem of a novel. This novel has one of the best worldbuilding and lore I have ever read. The lore is very expansive and the characters have hidden depths to them that comes to light over the course of the story.

One issue however is that the timeline of the story gradually becomes erratic as the story continues, as there are numerous side stories that shift back and forth between past and future events. This sort of story flow may seem strange and unintuitive, but it allows a logical buildup of events that further makes the reveal that much more exciting when the numerous side stories begin to overlap with each other. This novel is definitely the best Japanese novel I have read to date and I definitely recommend for others to read it.
